Will You Dare to Hang on the Monkey Bars?

“Greater love has no one than this that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 New International Version


Have you ever wondered what Jesus felt like while He was hanging on the cross?

I tried hanging on a set of monkey bars with my feet suspended. Did it ever hurt after just a few minutes.

Will you dare to hang on the monkey bars to experience what Jesus endured for you?

Just think, Jesus hung like that on a cross because He loves us for six hours.

It does not matter what you did in your past. It does not matter how bad you were. It does not matter if you are young or old. It does not matter if you are rich or poor. It does not matter your nationality.

Jesus loves us all so much He suffered that most horrible death so that we can enjoy the most loving relationship with our God in Heaven.

“Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” Anna Bartlett Warner

Prayer: Thank you our beloved Jesus for the tremendous sacrifice you paid so that we have the privilege of enjoying the most wonderful love affair there ever was, is or will be. I give thanks in Your treasured name. Amen.

He is My

I find being in harmony with Jehovah and Jesus second nature.

Now The Holy Spirit is different.

He is my mentor and so many times it is difficult to obey Him.

I love Him and respect Him but sometimes it is so difficult to be obedient to Him .Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

That is Why I

What or whom we worship determines our behavior.

That is why I worship Jesus, because of His love for me I worship Him.

Because of this I live a righteous life.

Because of this stress is replaced with peace.

Selfishness and bitterness is replaced with love. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Are Our Schools Anti Christ?

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6 New International Version

Could our schools be preparing a generation for the anti Christ?

Don’t they teach that there are no absolute rights or wrongs?

Is this not against Gods instructions?
Don’t they allow every type of worship except Christians?

How many schools teach that Christmas is because of Jesus’ birth?

You can have Santa Claus in class but not the nativity scene.

Is the “No one left behind” scam not preparing today’s generation to be idiots that do not learn to think?

After all why should they try if they know they cannot fail their class?

Do they not teach that there are no winners or losers, everybody gets a prize?

Does that not set them up to believe they are entitled even though they did not work for it?

Have you talked with anyone that has recently graduated from university or high school lately?

If they grow up believing they are entitled and do not believe in absolute rights or wrongs, if they do not learn to think, is that not making it easy for the anti Christ to smooth talk them into believing his lies?

Is it not our duty to teach the children the truth even though it is not politically correct?

How many people must have laughed at Noah’s children and tried to talk Noah out of this nonsense of wasting his time building a boat because of a little rain? Look what happened to them?

This time around the stakes are even higher aren’t they?

We do not need a degree to teach we need the Holy Spirits guidance to be effective teachers. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah


Prayer: Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit our teacher) please give me the strength and wisdom to teach all Your Holy and Righteous ways. I ask in the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

If There is No

If there is no repentance, there is no forgiveness.

Jesus did not tell the woman caught in adultery to keep on going out on one night stands but rather to go out and sin no more.

When someone sins against us we are to forgive them but if they refuse to repent we are to avoid them because they are not sorry for what they did, and they will continue to do it.

Not only that, but the abuse will just get worse.

If we must be in a relationship with them like at work, the relationship shall be formal. Do not talk with them unless you have to and make your answers just yes or no. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

He is Our Refuge City.

Select some towns to be your cities of refuge, to which a person who has killed someone accidentally may flee. They will be places of refuge from the avenger, so that anyone accused of murder may not die before they stand trial before the assembly. Numbers 35-11, 12 New International Version

Just as in the Old Testament times someone who accidently killed someone could and would take sanctuary in a city of refuge.

So too do we have a city of refuge in Christ.

He will protect us from the dangers of the devil and his demons who want to kill our spirit. When they attack us we take refuge in the protection of Christ’s loving strong arms. Oh they may hurt or destroy our body but our spirit will be protected by Jesus.

It is equally important to remain in Jesus’ city because if we do not then we are fair game for the evil ones.

Don’t you think that is why there are so many addicts and murders today?

Because they are not in Christ’s city, they are open to demonic forces that not only destroy them but also many innocent others.

Take shelter in Jehovahs strong arms. It is the safest place to be. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Shammah (God is present) for being the strong undefeatable city we can take sanctuary in to protect us from satan and his minions. Please give me the wisdom and strength to always remain in Your impenetrable fortress. I give thanks and request this in Your strong and mighty name. Amen.

A Good and Perfect Father

God the Father loves us just as much as He loves His Son, Jesus Christ.

Since that is a true statement can we ever have another anxious thought or rebellious attitude toward Him?

Because our heavenly Father loves us with such love as He has for His Son He will not let us want for anything good in His divine will. He will take care of us in the very best possible manner (Psa. 23:1Eph. 1:3). It is absolutely safe to put our trust in a perfect Father.

“Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust” (Psalm 103:13-14).

Jesus came to reveal the LORD God as a loving and kind Father (John 14:7-9Matt. 11:27).

It is only in the revelation of God by the Lord Jesus Christ that the idea of God the Father is fully developed.

The title “Father” is a distinguishing feature in the New Testament in the teaching of Jesus, especially in the Gospel of John. He reveals Jehovah God as Father. He is not the Father of all men, but only those who come to Him through Jesus Christ. “No one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6).

There is a distinction between God as our Creator and as Father to the believer.

God is a good and perfect Father (1 John 3:1-2John 10:1514:2Eph. 3:14Phil. 2:11).

We have been adopted and placed as His full-grown children in His family. He chose us to be His children; therefore we must allow Him to take care of the responsibilities as a caring Father.

Are we not worth more than many sparrows?

As a loving Father He always takes a greater care of His children (Matt. 6:24-2630-33).

God has revealed Himself as a true Father, full of love and mercy.

Do I respond to Him as His child?

The Father gives His very best to His children (Matt. 7:11Lk. 11:13). He even gives us His kingdom (Lk. 12:28-32). The context like Matthew chapter six speaks of all our needs. Our heavenly Father wants to give far more than we are able to receive.

Since this is true of our Father why should we fear coming to Him boldly and asking?

Why should we fear that He will fail to give us His very best?

If He failed to meet these needs of His children then His very integrity would be at stake. He will protect His Name because it reveals His perfect character. He will always give in such a manner that His Name will be glorified.

Will I do anything to cause others to doubt the integrity and trustworthiness of my heavenly Father?

Our doubting attitudes cast suspicion upon the faithfulness of our God.

Why would we dare libel our heavenly Father when we would never cast any suspicion on our earthly father?

Our responsibility is to trust a loving Father. We go through life as His children acting as if we were left orphans with no Father who cares about us. He is worthy of our confidence and absolute trust.

Have you taken time to acquaint yourself with your heavenly Father?

Do you know the “spirit of adoption” that cries out “Abba, Father”?

How tragic that many children are trapped by a “spirit of bondage.”

Am I willing to trust all my cares to my heavenly Father?

Why should I want to hold on to my fears, anxiety, and selfish cares when He is fully aware of all my most profound needs?

He is ready to meet them in the very best way possible.

One of the great needs we have is for security. The believer in Jesus Christ is eternally secure because there is a divine double grip around the believer (John 10:28-30). Jesus teaches us that no one can pluck us out of His secure hands, and “no one is able to pluck them out of My Father’s hand: I and the Father are one.”

Have you come to know our great God and Savior as your Father?

That Pleases God

The kind of worship that pleases God will be Christ-centered and Spirit-led. To try to worship without faith in Christ is folly; to try to worship without the power of the Holy Spirit is hollow. Allen P. Ross

A Good Clear Conscience

One of the greatest blessings for the born again Christian is the deep sense of peace with God (Phil. 4:79Col. 3:15John 14:27).

The apostle Paul wrote, “I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience bearing joint-testimony with me in the Holy Spirit . . .” (Romans 9:1).

Paul takes a triple oath here because of deep convictions regarding the salvation of the Jewish people. He makes a strong, positive affirmation in Christ, a negative statement that he is not lying, and the appeal to his conscience as a co-witness “in the Holy Spirit.” Paul looked to Christ and rejoiced; he looked at the Jewish people lost in sin and wept. Paul was willing to go to hell for the sake of his lost Jewish friends.

The conscience is that faculty of man that evaluates our actions, along with our thoughts that either accuse or excuse us of sin. Our conscience is an important part of human nature the world over. It is not an absolutely trustworthy indicator of what is right and wrong. We can have a “good” conscience (Acts 23:1); 1 Tim. 1:519), a “clear” conscience (Acts 24:161 Tim. 3:92 Tim. 1:3Heb. 13:18), or a “guilty” conscience (Heb. 10:22), a “corrupted” conscience (Titus 1:15), a “weak” conscience (1 Cor. 8:71012), or a “seared” conscience (1 Tim. 4:2).

The marvelous thing about the gospel is that “the blood of Christ” cleanses the conscience. The writer of Hebrews says, “How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Heb.  9:14).

The conscience is the remains of God’s image in man after the fall of Adam. The universal fact of this inner voice is important. It is a divine law. Because we are sinners obedience to the voice of conscience must always be tested with an acceptance of the revealed will of God in the Scriptures (John 8:7-9Rom. 2:15-169:1Titus 1:13-15).

The apostle Paul warned, “Nothing is wholesome to those who are themselves unwholesome and who have no faith in God—their very minds and consciences are diseased” (Tit. 1:15, Phillips). The conscience is defiled because the light from both it and the Holy Spirit are refused.

The conscience in the born again believer is restored to its high position as the Christian studies and meditates on God’s revealed will in the Bible. For the mature Christian the witness of the conscience will be met by the witness of the Holy Spirit as to what pleases God (Rom. 9:1). We should seek to continually have “a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men” (Acts 24:16).

May the Holy Spirit cleanse the deepest recesses of our hearts by the infinite purification that God alone can accomplish by means of the blood of Jesus Christ. May He make us sensitive to the slightest whisper of His Holy Spirit. His Spirit gives us a sense of disquiet when we are tempted. He makes us hate anything that will separate us from abiding fellowship with God.

To maintain a good, clear conscience that is sensitive to the Spirit of God we must confess every sin that we are conscious of and walk in the light of God’s Word. The Holy Spirit always uses God’s Word to reveal sin to us. When the conscience reproves listen to it, and confess the sin to God, claim His forgiveness based on the atoning death of Christ. The blood of Jesus cleanses us of all sin. Pray that the witness of your conscience and the witness of the Holy Spirit and the abiding presence of being “in Christ” becomes one. Hold “to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience” (1 Tim. 3:9).
