Until I Knew How to Love.

 

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

 I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. Romans 12:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a Christian means sacrificing self for Jehovah. We do this by being loving unto others. This is well pleasing to our Beloved.

We dedicate our bodies in service unto Christ by serving others in love. This is well pleasing to Him.

Each of these is an act of worship to Jehovah.

In return, He blesses us with close loving communion with Him.

As we serve others we realize how Jehovah takes care of us by us taking care of others. This increases our love and dedication towards Him.

It need not be travelling to other countries. In almost every country in the world there are ample volunteer opportunities in your own community. As you serve in a Christ like manner others will recognize Christ in you. This in turn will bring others towards being adopted into Jehovahs holy family. Do not expect big returns, from my experience it will only be about one in every ten that give their hearts unto Christ because of your dedicated service. The others will be ungrateful. Do not be disheartened. Even one is precious in the eyes of Jehovah.

“I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah MELEK KABOWD (King of Glory) for the privilege of serving You by being loving towards those around me. May this humble act of worship bring glory unto You and bring those walking in darkness into Your eternal Heavenly light. I worship You in the name of the light of the world with whom I love to worship Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Must Mean Everything to Us.

Therefore I urge you,brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.Romans 12:1 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Most western Christians have it backwards. They falsely believe that Jesus is here to serve them. They only call on Him when they want something from Him whether it is to solve a problem or whether it is because they want something from Him. When He blesses them with their request they are rude and ungrateful and do not even thank Him.

That is not the Christian life.

The Christian live is to dedicate ones self to Christ in serving Him. His will is to always supersede theirs. We are to lay our desires upon the alter and to completely surrender to their will in their lives. After all we were created to do specific works He has prepared for us to do.

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

The Christian motto is to be: Christ first, others second, self last. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When others see our sacrificial works they will become intrigued and ask us why  we live such a life. This will be our greatest testimony and evangelism of all. We are to be a living testimony for Him.

Do not tell me of your Christ, show me Him in your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Christianity must mean everything to us before it can mean anything to others.” — Donald Soper              

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) my eternal King for the supreme privilege of being Your humble servant. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

The Six Killers.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

There are six killers that destroy society today.

“But if you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and do not obey all the commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come and overwhelm you:Your towns and your fields will be cursed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be cursed.
Your children and your crops will be cursed. The offspring of your herds and flocks
will be cursed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be cursed. “The Lord himself will send on you curses, confusion, and frustration in everything you do, until at last you are completely destroyed for doing evil and abandoning me. The Lord will afflict you with diseases until none of you are left in the land you are about to enter and occupy. The Lord will strike you with wasting diseases, fever, and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, and with blight and mildew. These disasters will pursue you until you die. Deuteronomy 28:15-22 New International Version

There are six killers that destroy society today.

One: Electronic entertainment.

Now I am not saying there is anything wrong with TV, the internet or mobile phones.

What is wrong is that people spend too much time in front of the idiot box, on the internet and texting each other instead of personal contact with each other.

Instead of spending time doing things together as a family, most people are zombies with their electronics.

Have you ever seen people sitting at a table with each other and spending time texting instead of talking with each other.

I always inform people that if they want to spend time with me, they must turn off their mobiles first.

Religion.

It is not important whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Muslims, or Buddhism they all have the same core values. People need that in order to have the proper values in their lives.

Family.

How many people are spending so much time working that they are neglecting their marriages and children?

Who is better to raise your children: a mother and father or the internet or TV or texting? Instead of sitting around the supper table and talking about each others day, how many families are zoned out watching the idiot box?

I was at an acquaintances house for dinner one time. Everyone was glued to watching a rerun that they knew what it was about after the first scene. When I tried to start a conversation I was hushed.

As well how many people spend one day a week doing thing together as a family? How many people are strangers living in the same house?

Political correctness

There is no absolute right or wrong in society.

Everybody wins a prize. There is no failure permitted.

Consequently there are educated idiots graduating from schools today that are lucky if they know how to tie their shoes.

How many of the great people first suffered failure before they experience success?

Read about Thomas Edison and see how many times he failed before he invented the light bulb.

We need to understand that just as in the past when everybody did as they pleased it lead to the destruction of their society and ultimately to their country.

Look what happened in France in the seventeen hundreds as an example.

Commercialism.

Everywhere we go whether it is on the idiot box, on the mobile, on the bus, on the internet we are bombarded with buy, buy, buy.

How many countries are in debt up to their eyeballs and the people suffer because of greed?

How many people are maxed out on their credit cards because they foolishly though buying the newest toy would bring them happiness and are now slaves paying off their debt?

And of course the number one reason for the doom of any society is when they turn their backs on God.

How can you expect Gods blessings if you do not have an loving obedient relationship with Him?

Prayer: Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) please turn the hearts of the people back to You in order to prevent the doom and destruction of their personal lives, their family lives and their society lives. I humble request this in the name of the King of the most exhaled society, Heaven, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

They Are Real and They Are Dangerous.

DIVINE STRENGTH

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 New King James Version

Satanic and demonic warfare is very real and very dangerous.

Demons are very intelligent and very tricky. Indeed, many times people believe they are talking with Jehovah’s angels when in fact, they are talking with demons.

They are stronger than us and can easily overpower us.

A good personal example of this is when I used to feel demons pushing me into a liquor store to buy beer and get drunk. It was as if invisible hands were literally pushing me in and buying the beer. Then while sobering up, they would viciously taunt me, laughing and saying: “Look at you, you filth. You believe you are a child of God. How can He who is holy love a filth drunk?”

The only way this was conquered was to cry out to Jesus to save me because they were too strong for me. When I did that they instantly left me and I have not had a drink in years. They had no choice; they HAD to leave me alone.

 

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 New King James Version

Demons can exist in people so be careful with fortune tellers and astrologers. Demons can trick us by talking through psychics and astrologers.

Demons are individual and have memories. When they see a weakness in you like an addiction and you try to kick it, they will leave you alone and then come back with more demons.

When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order.  Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.” Luke 11 24-26

Demons will do anything to separate you from Jesus and keep you separated from Him.

God has said,” Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:4

Prayer: Please Jehovah Sabaoth (God, the commander of armies) send Your mighty angels to defeat santans minions when they attack me. I know I can depend upon the Holy Spirit within me but sometimes it is necessary for You to send Your angelic armies like You did for the Israelites during the six day war. I sincerely ask this in the name of the mighty king who defeated the demons when he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

The Best Relationship Advice

GODS FAITHFULNESS

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding Proverbs 3:5 New King James Version

God knows not only you but the other person as well. There are many things in the other person that you do not see but He does. So therefore it is best to always trust Him in any and all relationships.   It will prevent a lot of heartache, frustration and suffering later on in your life.

 

That guy may be a smooth talker but in reality is an abusive jerk. Man have I ever met a lot of them.   Personally I have found those who like to dress in luxuriant styles are snakes in the grass.

 

That woman may appear to be sweet and innocent but in reality she is manipulative, domineering and a self centered emotional thief. They will suck the life out of you quicker that a vacuum cleaner.

 

That person may seem goofy because they are shy but when you talk with them you discover they are very wise. Many of the wisest men and women I have had the privilege to become friends with I at first thought they were are brite as a burnt out light bulb but were very intelligent,caring, respectful, loving and wise.

That person may seem like a snob but in reality is just a loner (just because we are loners does not mean we have mental problems either). I am a loner yet most people consider me very deep, caring and supportive once they get to know me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Rohi (God our Sheppard) guide me towards those who are loving, caring and respectful and away from the life suckers (those who suck the life out of you). I sincerely ask this in the name of He who was open to the loving ones and closed to the lurking wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

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