There is Only Two Choices.

                                                 

 If it is unacceptable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’ All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell. No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is opened.” — C. S. Lewis

There are only two types of folks.

One type says I will do what I want and it will be done my way. As a consequence they are missing out on so much of life.

Who knows us better: us or Jehovah?

We go on feelings and intuitions which are easily misled. Indeed, they are the devils playground because he can easily manipulate them.

So say someone wants to be a mechanic and Jehovah has designed us to be an engineer. Try as hard as we may we will never be a mechanic which leads to disappointment.

When we follow Jehovahs guidance and become and engineer our lives are fulfilled.

The other thing is those outside of Christ are easily led astray by others (especially celebrities ) whose advice is for the masses not for the individual which is bad advice and they preach lies like blaming others instead of taking responsibility for our own actions. This only leads to more trouble and disappointment.

When we are lead by the Holy Spirit His advice is supreme, individualized and it is for our own good.

Going our own way leads to Hell, going Jehovahs way leads to Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the honour of being Your free willed servant. Thank you for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and assist me in becoming more of an obedient child of Yours every day. In Your majestic name I do humbly pray. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Is the Most Free.   

 

It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant,  and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your [willing and humble] slave Matthew 20:26-27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus Christ is not just our Savior and best friend but He is also our King. That means we are His free will servants (we serve Him because we love Him).

How are we to serve this Heavenly King?

The only way to serve Christ is by serving others.

In all we do we are to do so with being servant unto Christ to bring Him glory.

It is not done to bring glory to ourselves (The look at me, look at me syndrome. Am I not so holy attitude or am the I not so good attitude.). As such we place others above ourselves.

So if you are a rich CEO and you are in a restaurant do not look down on the server or anyone else working there but treat them with respect. If you are a server serve the clientele as if you were serving Christ. We are to do everything to the best of our abilities no matter whether we are getting paid for it or not.

Because we are Christs servants we are confident in who we are in Christ and this leaves us free of jealousy of co-workers, of the social status trap, the culture trap or anything else in the material world.

“A Christian man is the most free lord of all, and subject to none; a Christian man is the most dutiful servant of all, and subject to everyone.”Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with freeing from the slavery of the world and for blessing me with the immense honour of being Your free will servant. I exalt You in You magnificent name. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

That I May Not Cause Pain!

Christ, WILL LEAD

“That Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested. 1 Chronicles 4:10 New King James Version                                                      

Think of a loving father that guides his child in how to have mature respectful relationships. That is a good father.

 

How much more supreme is Jehovah our Heavenly Father?

When we submit to His divine wisdom He guides our thoughts away from evil and towards love and good.

 

When someone does us wrong our first instinct is revenge. This is a never ending circle of destruction of I get you back, then you get me back even worse. Each time it escalates.

 

When, instead we pray to our loving Father to take our hand and guide us in the righteous way to handle the matter not only does it prevent a lot of hardship and trouble but it also glorifies Him.

Then there is the unknown.

Perhaps someone did us wrong unintentionally but we take it personally and want revenge. An innocent individual gets hurt. As well, we as ambassadors of Christ blacken His holy name.

 

This has happened to me on a few occasions and I felt like a fool towards the one I offended and all those present. As well I was deeply ashamed towards my loving Father in Heaven. When the truth came to light I humbly approached them and deeply, sincerely apologized.

We are ambassadors for Christ unto the world. Let our words and actions be done accordingly to bring Him glory not shame. Joseph- Anthony: Green

If we pray for Jehovahs hand to guide us through the situation and are obedient unto His guidance we not only prevent unnecessary harm but bring glory unto Him. Because of this we may be the catalyst to brining lost souls into Jehovahs holy family by our actions.

When we pray for revenge Jehovah is silent. When we pray for wisdom to deal with the situation righteously He abundantly blesses us with holy wisdom. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) daily take my hand and guide me words and actions that they bring praise and glory unto You and bring the little lost sheep unto You. I humbly request this in the name of he who led His disciples into becoming wise, meek, humble and gracious unto all Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

The Honour Goes Elsewhere.

EXAMINE YOURSELF

In Judges chapter four Deborah sent Barak into battle but Barak refused to go unless she went with him. As a consequence he lost the honour of the victory

because he trusted more in the prophetess than in Jehovah.                                     

How many times do we listen to and worship a God fearing preacher over God?

So when the Lord inspires the preacher to give a message in his sermon that is speaking to you do you give glory and thanks to the preacher without even thanking the Lord?                                                                                                          

So do you not think the glory will go elsewhere instead of to you for the accomplishment the Lord is calling you to perform?                                                        

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) consecrate my spirit, mind and body to complete obedience to You. I meekly request this in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                             

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Be Careful About Them.

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

If anyone thoughtlessly takes an oath to do anything, whether good or evil (in any matter one might carelessly swear about) even though they are unaware of it, but then they learn of it and realize their guilt when anyone becomes aware that they are guilty in any of these matters, they must confess in what way they have sinned. Leviticus 5:3-4 New International Version

As you can see, Jehovah takes all vows seriously.

So if you take a vow, even if you are tricked into it and refuse to honour it, you will pay the price.

This I believe is intended to drive home three points.

One: there is a price to pay for disobedience.

Now if you have taken a vow that is detrimental to society, or Christ, you should break it.

Otherwise the consequences will be more severe. So if a friend has nagged you into keeping a secret of how they cheated on an a deal with another company you should break that vow to do the right thing and report it otherwise when they are caught you will suffer the same punishment at them.

 

The second important thing is to drive home the importance of waiting and seeking council through councilors and prayer to avoid being caught up in these in the first place.

The third one is the one I have been plagued with constantly in China.

Do not make a promise you do not intend to keep.

In China they have a practice of promising you almost anything to get you to do what they want you to do. Once you have done your part they conveniently get amnesia and forget their promises (which in reality they had no intention of keeping in the first place).

This has taught me a valuable lesson.

Now when someone wants me to do something for them and they make extravagant promises I inform them loudly in public that because I want them to prove to everyone how honest they are I will give them the honour of fulfilling their promises first.

It greatly shames them.

Every time I see them I loudly ask them when they are going to fulfill their promises.

This is done as a warning to those who are watching and listening so they do not attempt this filth on me.

It has eliminated a lot of stress in my life and a lot less being made a sucker out of.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always depend upon Your Holy Spirits voice to guide me on when to and when not to make promises because they are oh so very serious to You. I know this voice will prevent me from making foolish promises or unattainable promises. I sincerely request this in the name of He who promised to always be with me and has kept His promise Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

I Will Praise You.

DANCE FOR JOY

I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. Psalm 9:1 New King James Version

 

Whenever I find myself becoming a Negative Nellie I always reflect back on all the marvelous blessing Jehovah has abundantly showered upon me both great and small. As each one comes to mind I thank my gracious Heavenly Father for these gifts. Soon the negative thoughts are replaced with boisterous praise.

 

 

It not only changes my disposition for the moment but also becomes a part of my daily life.

 

When you want to complain, think of something to be grateful for and thank God for it. See how much your life changes. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Oh how I praise You my awesome Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the in-numerous amazing gifts You have abundantly graciously showered upon me every day. It makes my heart sing like a bird of Your amazing love and care for this, Your cherished child. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Gift You have blessed me with Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
