A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Put them into Practice.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

“Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24 The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Reading the Bible and then not applying its principals is like reading an instruction manual and then trying to build your project on your own without listening to the guidance provided in the manual.

Sounds pretty dumb huh?

But, on the other hand, incorporating the sacred knowledge in the hidden truths of the Bible will enable us to walk closer to God. It will be a life filled with good morals and a foundation of truth which to cement into our hearts.

“Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” (Proverbs 2:2-5 The Holy Bible, English Standard Version)

This will hold us in good stead when the violent crushing storms of life come crashing down around us (and the storms of life always come until our dying day)

James 1:22 says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says” (The Holy Bible, New International Version).

After reading the Bible we need to request God to open our eyes in how to apply what we have learned into our daily lives.

” Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.” James 4:17 (The Holy Bible, New Living Translation).

“Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105 The Holy Bible, Good News Bible).

Guard my words as your most precious possession. Write them down and also keep them deep within your heart.” (Proverbs 7:2 The Holy Bible,The Living Bible)

We are to obey what the Holy Spirit teaches or we are wasting His time by being make believe Christians. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We are not to become Holy Rollers or Bible thumpers.

You know the type. They shove the Bible in your face and pound on it condemning you and demanding you follow THEIR version of the passages. All the while, they go about living as they please. Can you say the word hypocrite or bully?

Please don’t condemn yourselves with this destructive behavior. Not only will you drive others away from Jesus, but you will be found guilty of that heinous crime on judgment day. They are puffed up like a balloon.

Instead use the observations gained in a positive manner to lovingly enlighten those around you.

“Knowledge puffs up but love builds up”. 1 Corinthians 8:1(The Holy Bible, New International Version).

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with enlightening me to Your light while refraining me from overindulging in knowledge while lacking in love. Thank you that Your guard me words so as to prevent me from suffering from foot in mouth disease. I extol You in the name of the supreme expert in these manners Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are You a Fool?

GUARD YOUR INPUT

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.  To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,  to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 New International Version

Are you very beautiful?

Do you prance around like a prima donna proud of your beauty?

Was your beauty not a gift from Jehovah?

Do you thank Him for that?

Do you use that talent to give glory to Him instead of giving glory to yourself?                             .

Is that not playing the part of the fool?

Can you blame Him if He takes your beauty from you?

Do you have talent to paint, write or sing?

Do you stand there basking in the limelight instead of giving glory to God and using your God giving talent to serve Him?

Is that not playing the fool?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) do not allow me to become arrogant and ungrateful for the gifts You have so graciously blessed me with.

Please provide me with the opportunities to use these gifts to bring glory to You.

I humbly request this in the name of He who used His gifts to bring glory to You as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Prevents It Flying to God.

SATANS TRAP

Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Matthew 19:21-22 New King James Version

“The love of worldly possessions is a sort of birdlime (trap), which entangles the soul and prevents it flying to God.” Augustine

In most of the world today most people are slaves.

They foolishly fall for the trap of materialistic pleasures such as a new house (which in my opinion is nothing more than a money pit). Then they are slaves to a mortage and constant upkeep costs. Indeed how many houses are overpriced because of rich immigrants coming in and buying everything up and we cannot afford a house anyway.

They are shallow enough to purchase products that promise they will be physically beautiful while neglecting their spiritual beauty. If have met many that their physical appearances are ugly yet they are the most beautiful souls I have had the privilege to meet. They go out and buy products that run up their credit cards and clothing that is overpriced and they go in debt. Meanwhile those outfits they “Had to have” are sitting in their closets collecting dust. They are slaves to fashion.

I think it is shameful when someone owns a house and they have to rent to storage place because they have too much stuff.

They think buying a certain car will make them happy and cool. I always laugh and ask them if that means they are dorks when they are not in their cars.

It is an empty happiness those whose happiness is found in worldly pleasures.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddai ( God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) for all the amazing blessings You abundantly shower upon this child of Yours every day. I exalt You in the name of He who always provides for His cherished sheep Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Two Pronged Attack

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  Matthew 6:19 New King James Version

DEPARTING DEVILS

 

Here is the two pronged attack Satan uses on us:

One Lucifer gets us so interested in gaining material things to keep up with the Jones that puts men and women deeply in debt. 

We grow exhausted in being slaves to a debt that will never be repaid.                           

Every increased possession leads us to new weariness. John Ruskin                                                          

That brings the second attack:                                                                                          

Then you are so busy working to pay off the debt and worrying about it that you neglect time with Jehovah in daily Bible reading and praying and enjoying all the beauty around us that He graciously abundantly blesses us with.                                

I find it funny when taking photos. Many people look at me like I am weird because they see me taking photos of the simple things all around us. I explain the simple beauty in the object and it is as if their eyes are open and they look at me in amazement and say: You know, I walk past that every day to work and never paid any attention to it.”                                                                                                     

When you notice nature, you see Gods handiwork. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jesus Pyrrand (Jesus my friend) bless me to always esteem our loving relationship higher than any material thing that only brings me emptiness and a slave to debt. In Your cherished name I do request this most treasured blessing. Amen.

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