I Lose but I Win

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord Isaiah 1:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every time I have gotten into debate with Jehovah I lose but I win.

I debate with Him my wants, many times even using Bible scripture to back up my point of view. He gently but persistently uses different Bible scriptures to see things in a completely different way.

I lose my fleshly desires but win in obediently surrendering unto His will which is the best for me.

As well I am blessed with new insight into my Beloved and a new way of looking at things.

The reward for this is bringing me into a deeper loving relationship with my Heavenly Beloved.

As well He shows me the rewards for being obedient both spiritually and materially that far surpass my fleshly desires. To the world this is foolishness, stupid and down right insane. To those of us who walk close with Christ it makes perfect sense.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with being so patient with me when I am stubborn and slow to grasp what You are trying to teach me. Thank You that when I submit unto Your wise guidance it is always for my best. I praise You in the name of the wisest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Am the Only Way.

 Jesus said to him, I am the [only] Way to God and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no negotiation with Jehovah.

I do not care what religion it is they all fall flat on their faces because they refuse to accept Christ as the Saviour and Heavenly King.

As for so the called Christian churches that preach the Santa Claus religion ( just as if you are a good boy or a good girl Santa Claus will bring you presents some so called Christian religions preach that it is by good works that you enter into Heaven. Both are fairy tales) they are living in a fools paradise. All their good works do not matter one iota on judgment day.

It is only by Christs blood, resurrection and our accepting His sacrifice and accepting Him as our saviour that we will be granted entrance into Heaven.

“God never negotiates with men. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross put an end to any kind of negotiations. It is now Christ or nothing. It is now God’s word in its entirety or nothing.” A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wonderful privilege of being Your humble servant here on earth and eventually for eternity in the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I extol Thee in thy magnificent name. Amen

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

God Can Count the Apples.

 Would not God discover this? For He knows the secrets of the heart. Psalm 44:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many whom I believed to be righteous and pious only to be bitterly disappointed to discover later that they were first class scoundrels.

I have met many whom I believed were cold hearted only to discover they were just reserved in character but generous in heart. Y

ou can fool some of the people some of the time but you can never fool Jehovah at any time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is why it is important not to judge others but to go to Jehovah in sincere prayer and request His guidance in relationship with others. For, He knows the true heart of all men and women. He knows the ones that produce sweet fruit and He knows the ones that produce bitter fruit.

Since doing this I have avoided a lot of terrible relationships and been blessed with some unusual beautiful relationships with others.

“Anyone can count the seeds in an apple… but only God can count the apples in a seed.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Kal El (voice of God) for wisely guiding away from toxic folks and towards the loving ones that cross my path to Heaven. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which Son are You?

double beautiful water lilies

 “What do you think? There was a man who had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ And he answered, ‘I will not’; but afterward he regretted it and changed his mind and went. Then the man came to the second son and said the same thing; and he replied, ‘I will, sir’; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of the father?” Matthew 21: 28- 31 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Which Son are You?

Personally I am the first son.

There have been so many times I believed Jehovah to be insane when He sent me on a task. Many times I stomped my foot and flat out refused to obey such a ludicrous suggestion. Upon reflection in quiet times I would slowly submit ( even though I was certain it was going to end disastrously for guess who). To my total shock and amazement the task was gloriously completed and I could not cease proclaiming His awesomeness and me admiration of Him. As my walk with our Beloved Heavenly Father progressed and these tasks became more challenging my attitude evolved from one of : “ Are you nuts; this is certain disaster. “ to : “ Okay my Love, I do not know how You are going to do it and am certainly looking forward to Your unusual way of providing for this child of Your to not only complete the task but to do so in a manner which glorifies You. “

Jehovah does not care if you argue as long as you obey. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have met many who openly profess to be obedient children of God yet refuse to obey His leading. They are the naughty second child.

Which one are you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to prick my conscience into obedience unto You. I love You and always desire to be a loving obedient child of Yours. I humbly thank you in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

At Compound Interest.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 One of the advantages of getting old is seeing the hand of Jehovah in others lives during the course of a few decades.

If then, you act with hostility toward Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times in accordance with your sins.” Leviticus 26:21 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed many of the proud and arrogant laugh as they foolishly believe they can live their lives as they see fit and are cruel and dishonest with their neighbours. Through the course of time their mental, physical and spiritual health deteriorates until they are living a daily life of living hell all alone. They are angry and bitter. The strange thing is that they know if they repent at least they will have mental and spiritual health but because they are arrogant they refuse, even unto death. At the moment of death they are alone and terrorized knowing that they are doomed to be cast into eternal Hell where they belong. There is a deep sense of doom and gloom in the room and you cannot wait to get out of there. It is a very sad and pitiful site to see no matter how bad they were to you.

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the [steadfast] lovingkindness which He swore to your fathers. He will love you and bless you. Deuteronomy 7:12-13 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed those that love Jehovah and are obedient unto Him. They are kind, loving, joyous and generous. They age gracefully and are surrounded with a swarm of others to constantly help them when they need help in their old age. They are enveloped with an aura of peace, love, joy and gentleness. You cannot help but love to be around them and help them. When it is time for them to pass on to the other side they are surrounded by loved ones. There is a peace in the room when they pass on. You cannot help but cry with joy at the honour of being their friend and look forward to being with them in Heaven.

“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your divine guidance to walk in Your Heavenly light. Thank you that the fruit of this light is love, joy and peace and with the numerous opportunities to share this light with others in a cold, cruel dark world. I praise you in the name of the Prince of Light Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Why do we do that?

Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Proverbs 15:22 New International Version

One time I experienced problems with my computer and attempted to repair the problem on my own. Not only did the problem get worse but other problems occurred which made matters worse. Finally the computer was taken in to the shop to be repaired.

Isn’t that the way we are in life?

We are cursed with the “I know, I know” syndrome when we try something on our own without asking for help and end up messing things up real bad and have worse problems than when we started, especially us men. Then, we end up taking it to those who know to get the problem solved.

Why do we do that?

The simple answer is pride, we refuse to humble ourselves.

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Should we not always seek advice before we attempt important thing in our lives?

How many less divorces or bankruptcies do you think there would be if we sought wise counsel with honest God fearing councilors first?

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit my wise Guidance Councilor for all the wonderful council You have so generously blessed me with in my difficult walk with You on the path to Heaven. I humbly apologize for the times in my arrogance, pride and lack of faith I stubbornly refused to be Your obedient student. I exalt You in the name of He whose suffering and sacrifice made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do You Pout When They Do It?

But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry. He prayed to the Lord, “Isn’t this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity. Now, Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live.” Jonah 4:1-3 New International Version

Johan went to Nineveh to give a warning that if the city refused to repent they would be destroyed. When his arch nemesis repented he felt cheated and angry.

Do you do that?

When someone does you wrong and repents do you feel cheated and angry instead of filled with joy for them?

When you do wrong and Jesus forgives you, you feel glad as does He.

LET ALL REJOICE

As a Christian should we not follow Jesus’ example and feel glad for them?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with a gracious heart to truly celebrate with joy when anyone repents of any offence against me just as I know the angels in Heaven do. I obediently implore You in the name of He who cried “Forgive them Father” from the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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