Nobody Would Now be Saying.

 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words]. Matthew 28:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our savior that does not mean we are to sit on our hands doing nothing but waiting for Him to take us to Heaven.

Just as He is our Savior so too is He our King.

If He is our King then that makes us His free will servants. As servants the King has assignments for us.

The number one assignment is to bring others into His Holy family.

We accomplish this by living the Christian life every where we are. When others who are open to listening see this they will come unto us not we go out unto them (that is why the Jehovah’s Witnesses and other cults are wrong to harass folks by knocking on our doors). Then we can share the gospel with others and bring them into His Holy family.

We do this everywhere, at school or work, when shopping, in our leisure activities and any other place we are. We are also to make the commitment to helping them in their Christian walk by having Bible studies with them and giving them testimony of what Christ has done in our lives and through our lives.

“If Christians had ever been brave enough to make Christ alive, nobody would now be saying that Christianity is dead.” — Winifred Kirkland

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) bless me to always live a life and talk the talk to show others that You are alive, active and ever present in my life so that they may be brought unto You Holy family. I humbly ask this in the name of the liveliest Eternal King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Duty or Obligation?

But if a widow has children or grandchildren [who are adults], see to it that these first learn to show great respect to their own family [as their religious duty and natural obligation], and to compensate their parents or grandparents [for their upbringing]; for this is acceptable and pleasing in the sight of God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am a live in caregiver for my elderly mother.

Every month she extravagantly gives money to her elder son and grand daughter, even though they do not life a finger to help with the yard work, house work or care of mom.

I do all the work with no help but she gives miserly to me.

One day we had a big fight where I told her to tell them to get their lazy butts down here and help out. I was fed up and ready to leave. I prayed in my tent (the only place where I can get peace) for guidance on where to go.

The Lord gave a one word reply: STAY.

I decided  to stay but that I was going to go on strike until there was a change around here and that mom starts paying me for my work so that I can build a nest egg for when she passes on I will not be left empty handed.

Jehovah asked me a three word question: Duty or obligation?

Duty is an act of love while obligation is an exchange of goods. I chose duty unto my Jehovah and my mother. Jehovah questioned me if I trusted Him to always provide for me or if I chose to trust in a bank account?

Obviously I chose Him.

In the course of the next three days He kept on reassuring me through Bible verses and daily Christian devotionals sent to my email that not only will He always provide for me but that I shall be abundantly rewarded for my service unto Him.

Now I could care less about the inequality in the blood family because I know that my Heavenly family shall always stand beside me and richly reward me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless me to always keep my mind and heart concentrated upon fulfilling my duty to my Heavenly King no matter how foolish it looks to the world. I know in my heart of heart that just doing so brings joy to You and that is the most important wealth in my life . I am also assured of Your Divine care for my in my service to you and that is the best investment of all. I thank You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

Never Existed Before.

God  loveS populations,

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version

Just think there is only one like you. You are an original. There was never anyone like you and never will be again.

So why do you try to fit in with the crowd?

I remember this really bad TV show that everyone was watching. When I asked my friends if they liked it, they confided in me that they thought the show was boring and crappy. When I asked them why they watched it their reply was always the same: because everybody else is.

Now God created you for a special purpose that only you can accomplish.

When you give your life over to Jesus that makes Him your king. As such the King has a special assignment just for you His servant.

To know what that is takes honest and sincere prayer.

He has always answered me in unusual ways. Sometimes it was with a small advertisement in a newspaper, sometimes it was a sermon, sometimes it was a talk with a friend.

When your calling is revealed it will sometimes be one that takes a leap of faith.

But know this, all calling are important or else Christ would not waste your time and His.

If your calling is to be a stay at home mother it is just as important as a missionary (stay at home mothers have a very important calling, molding the next generation of Jehovahs children).

If your calling is  to be a waitress or waiter the work you do is very important. Your attitude can change someones day and indeed their life.

“Every person born in this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique.”  Martin Buber

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for blessing me with a special assignment to bring glory and honour to Your cherished name and for the wonderful opportunity to bring someone into Your sanctified family. I praise you in the name of He whose precious blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Can Do the Impossible.

faith in the future

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13New King James Version

Have you ever been given a “mission impossible” by Jehovah?

You know, when He asks you to do something and you do not have the recourses to do it, skill to do it or experience to do it.

More than once I accused Jehovah of being crazy. You want me to do what? Are You crazy? You want me to go where? Are You crazy?

The thing is though, He always starts me out with small tasks. As I am more and more obedient to Him and reliant upon Him to provide for the task to be completed He gives me more challenging tasks

That may not sound too inviting in our do as little as possible and demand as much as possible world but the bonus is that the more obedient we are to our Master (if Jesus is our King then we are His servants) the more He reveals just how awesome and amazing He is. This creates a more respectful, awestruck and loving heart towards Him and we develop a strong loving relationship with Him.

Wow, what an incredible bonus huh?

“God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.” A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with amazing adventures as I am Your obedient child in which You always provide for me. Thank you that this blesses me with a deer understanding, love and respect for You my cherished Heavenly Father. I exalt You in the name of my awesome King Jesus Christ. Amen.

Before It Hated You.

HARRASED

If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. John 15:18-20New King James Version

Read the New Testament

When we read in the New Testament the terrible way the people treated Jesus when He walked amongst us why are we surprised that we are treated the same way?.

When we are the Kings servants why should we be surprised when the same thing happens to the servants as happed to our King?

He was rejected and ridiculed by His family.

He was thrown out of places of worship.

He was laughed at.

How many times was He told to leave town?

He was called insane. The wonderful thing is that when these happen to you (and they will) you can always take it to Jesus because He knows exactly how you feel and He will strengthen you and comfort you.

He has me.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) that I can always come to you when feeling beaten, rejected and abused because of my relationship with my beloved King because You have already walked that path so You understand and will comfort and heal and strengthen me on my difficult path to Your home You have prepared for Your obedient servant Heaven. I thank you in Your loving name. Amen.

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

What Kind of Ambassador are You?

We are ambassadors for Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:20 New King James Version

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

 

An ambassador represents their country and their government. As such, when we call ourselves Christians everything we say and do represents Christ our king and His kingdom.

What kind of ambassador are you at work, at school, while driving, while shopping and in all your other activities?

 

How about your speech? Do people see a loving but firm Christ when you talk about abortion or homosexuality? Do you have a potty mouth just to fit in or are your words filled with wisdom, grace and meekfulness (It is not weak to be meek. Meekfulness means keeping your temper under control. Only the strong can do that.)

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me. Acts 1:8 New King James Version

As an ambassador it is our divine duty to speak with others of our King and His kingdom. As well as, to invite others to become citizens of our kingdom with our King.

How often do you share Jesus at work, at school, on the bus to work or school, in your
neighbourhood?

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Mein Jerusalem,
and in all Judea and Samaria, Acts 1:8 New International Version

You want a real challenge?
No it is not going on short term missions (which from my observations do more harm than good) where nobody
knows you. It is being an ambassador in your school, at work, in your neighbourhood and where you do volunteer work.

Now if you are going to be an ambassador for Christ do not seek the accolades from man or woman because instead you will many times receive mockery and indeed down right hostility.
To be frank with you I have received more hostility in our so called free world (which is slowly being taken over by the
satanic politically correct) than I did living ten years in communist China.
Prayer: Please Jehovah KaEl (voice of God) bless me to be an obedient child and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit as He guides me where You want me to be and to say the words You want me to say so that others will be blessed to be receptive to Your word, repent and enjoy a loving relationship with You. I humbly request this in the name of He who was the best ambassador when He
walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Are to Use It

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10 New International Version

PURPOSE OF GOD

Yes, Jesus is our Savior, but He is also our king.

As such, does that not make us His servants?
And what do servants do?

They serve right?

Who determines where the servant is to serve?

The King right?

So if the servant wants to take care of the Kings garden but the King wants them to serve cleaning His toilets what are we His obedient servants to do?

Clean the toilets right?

So too it is to be with us.

Instead of going off half cocked using the hit and miss technique (you know, I will just go out and do what I think Jesus wants me to do and if it is not right I will just keep searching until I find what I think He wants me to do) is it not better to wait, pray and seek guidance on where the King wants us to serve?

Now just because He wants you to serve here today does not mean He may not want you to serve somewhere else tomorrow.

In my walk in servant hood I have served in various fields such as medicine, teacher and writer.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Adonai (Jesus our king) for the special privilege of serving You in my daily life. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen.

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