Being a Missionary Is

Christ, WILL LEAD

Then Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you [as My representatives].” John 20:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a missionary is going Where Christ send you. It may not be to another country, it may be to the next door neighbour. Even though it may seem small and insignificant to you, if it was not important to Jesus, He would not be sending you. You do not need a degree in some seminary, you need a willing heart now. Do not worry about what to say or how, the Holy Spirit will either guide you on what to say or will speak through you.

But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me. John 15:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

An added benefit of this is becoming close to Jehovah as you become His missionary in your everyday life.

“It is in the ordinary duties and labors of life that the Christian can and should develop his spiritual union with God.” — Thomas Merton

If anyone dares to impede you, they had better be aware.

“Behold, I am going to send an Angel before you to keep and guard you on the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. Be on your guard before Him, listen to and obey His voice; do not be rebellious toward Him or provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgression, since My Name (authority) is in Him. But if you will indeed listen to and truly obey His voice and do everything that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries. Exodus 23:20-22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your amazing presence with me throughout the day. May I always be receptive unto Your wisdom and grow ever closer with You every minute of every day. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who I enjoy taking walks with and talking with Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Center Your Mind on Them.

 

Finally,believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. Philippians 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us take a test okay?

Where do you spend more time: A watching trash on the TV or B watching Christian movies on the internet?

Listening to that rubbish they call music on the radio or listening to and singing along with Christian joyful praise music on the radio?

Which do you spend more time doing: serving self :playing sports, going shopping, or any other activity(there is nothing wrong with these activities unless they are thieves which rob time away from serving Christ) or serving Christ?

Do not sit there and shake your head in agreement and then do nothing about it, make a concerted effort to change your habits.

Of course it is a necessary requirement to go to a make over artist. And, as we all know, The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist. Ask Him for direction in your life to change your habits and then obey His guidance.

This takes time. You are not only be molded into a new creation but you also have to have the filth of the world purged from your mind and from your spirit.

Do not just think about making changes in your life, pray to Jehovah on how to make those changes and then do it. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for sanctifying me with Your word in every aspect of my life. Thank You Holy Spirit for grace in assisting me to conquer the destructive mentality in me so that I may continue to grow into the cherished child my Beloved Father in Heaven desires me to be. I give all glory unto You in the name of He who is the best remodeler of the soul Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Did So.

 

Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whenever I share with folks the fact that Jehovah has spoken with me they believe me to be insane.

Yet, I did so. I heard it as clear as if He was standing physically beside me. His voice is not loud or harsh. It is soft, comforting and reassuring while being strong.

One day when I was planting trees in the Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia Canada I took a break and enjoy the fantastic scenery (most of those islands are uninhabited and the animals have never seen a human before) a soft voice to my left whispered: “This is but a taste of Heaven.” I laughed and replied: “ Yeah I will bet it……” as I turned a around to see no one there. Yet that voice was as clear as if you were standing beside me now and saying it to me.

This is but one of many examples of hearing an unseen voice. At first it terrified me but upon reading this verse understood Who the voice was. It has guided me away from disasters, guided me to folks that needed help and other numerous occasions.

Do not think that the Bible is just stories or that that happened back then and does not occur today. When you walk with Christ and are close to Him in a loving relationship you too hear that soft gentle invisible voice from time to time. Obey it and amazing things will happen.

Jehovah is speaking, are you listening? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now you are not to listen to just every voice because satan and his minions can do that as well. You are to test the spirits.

For me I call out to my Abba in Heaven to protect me from the deceiving spirits but if the voice continues I shall obey because I trust Him to protect me when in doubt.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with the privilege of listening to Your gentle loving voice and for the wonderful honor of talking with You through out the day every day. I thank you in the name of the sweetest voice of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Question is, Who Listens?

gods-word

 Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience]. Psalm 34:11 Amplified Bible

No, that is not your conscience speaking to you, that is the Holy Spirit.

The devil is an expert at twisting the truth into a lie so if you depend upon your “conscience” you are easy prey for Him.

Then how will you know if it is the Holy Spirit or the devil?

The answer is in developing a deep personal relationship with Jehovah by reading your Bible and obeying what it says.

From my personal experience when I am reading the Bible and a verse jumps out at me, that is the Holy Spirit speaking to me. I stop reading and pray for enlightenment. Then he guide me to understanding the Bible verse in context to what He is saying about my life.

Another way is to listen to good sermon like on sermonaudio and reading good Christian books like can be found on sites like goodread and https://www.gutenberg.org (personally my preference is for the old classics). Of course we should also have godly Christian councilors.

The problem I have sadly witnessed too frequently is that even when others know Jehovah is speaking to them the deliberately chose to ignore Him because he is telling them something they do not want to hear. They want their way, not Jehovahs. That is a sure recipe for disaster. Then when catastrophes occur they go cry babying to Jehovah and ask why He is doing this to them.

God is speaking to all of us, all the time. The question is not, to whom does God talk? The question is, who listens? Neale Donald Walsch

Are you experiencing difficulties in your life right now?

Are you listening to Jehovah as He is speaking to you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with patiently teaching me to be wise, gracious, humble and meek like my Beloved King Jesus. Thank you for the tools You have blessed me with to receive an ever deepening of these blessings. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Rabbi of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You a Hand Sitter?

double beautiful water lilies

In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead James 2:17 New International Version

Unfortunately too many Christians mistakenly believe that once they accept Christ as their Savior all they have to do is sit on their hands and wait for Him to carry them to Heaven.

Nothing is further from the truth.

We are created and commanded to do good works.

So my question to you is: are you a hand sitter?

Christians are called to take action, not be spectators. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Another mistake too many Christian have is believing in the hit and miss technique.

That is where they believe they will just go out and do good works until they find the place where they believe God wants them to be.

That is saying that they do not depend upon God to lead them to where He wants them to be.

 

This causes a lot of wasted time and is arrogant. It is saying that you are depending upon your own wisdom instead of being depend upon and obedient to Gods guidance in your life.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:8-10 New International Version

Have thy tools ready, God will provide the work. Charels Kingsley

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Shepard) guide me to the time and place You have wisely predetermined to serve You in the manner You have so graciously prepared for me your humble obedient child. I beseech You in the name of Your most obedient child who obeyed Your calling in His life all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Shall Not Be Moved.

SHOUT IT

I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. Psalms 16:8-9 New King James Version

 

Therefore: in consequence of that; as a result;   www.dictionary.com

To set the Lord before me indicated that we are following the Lords path in our life. The right hand is the one of honesty and strength.

Therefore these verses indicates that we trust and obey the Lords leading and we are not moved by others opinions or motives.

I do not conform to what others think I ought to do but rather to what I know Jehovah has made me to do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

As a consequence of this our hearts are filled with gladness and we know that our glory comes from Christ so we rejoice in His divine leading and strength in our lives.

Our hope is not like hoping to win a lottery (good luck) but rather in the assurance of a rock solid guarantee.

The guarantee of course is confidence that we have a calling, we are walking in that calling, and the Lord provides for us in that calling.

As a result of this we have a guarantee of a permanent Heavenly reward which brings joy to our spirit.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi (Jesus our great Sheppard) for blessing me with a divine calling and the Heavenly joy that comes with walking this path with You. I exalt You in Your magnificent name. Amen.                                                                                                             

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

The Divine Pardon.

a couple of huge birds resing on a log in a serene lake

Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7 New King James Version

There is no sin committed which the Lord will not forgive upon repentance.

Look at David, look at Peter, look at Paul. They were all recalls in their own right however upon repentance they were forgiven.

 

Now repentance means not only being sorry but to stop doing what is wrong and try to make right to those you have done wrong to.

 

Many times this will entail getting good Christian counseling and obeying what is said to do.

 

Many times this is beyond your capability which is when you need the help of the Holy Spirit and be obedient to His divine guidance.

 

Prayer: Search me oh Lord and if there is any deeds I have committed in word or action, convict me of them and bless me with them means of gaining true repentance. I humbly request this in the name of He who paid such a high price for this privilege Jesus Christ. Amen.

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