Following the Example Of

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. Ephesians 5:2 Holy Bible New Living Translation

We imitate that which we admire. Joseph a son of Jehovah

True Christians admire, adore and worship Christ. As such, they are not haughty nor self righteous. They are humble ( which means we do not put ourselves above nor below others. We are confident in who we are in Christ so we do not need to impress anybody. ), loving, compassionate and respectful.

When folks see this in a selfish self centered world they are drawn to us like bugs to a light. That is how we imitate Christ, which is the only way to attract the little lost sheep to the Great Sheppard flock.

“There is not a hint of one person who was afraid to draw near him [Jesus]. There were those who mocked him. There were those who were envious of him. There were those who misunderstood him. There were those who revered him. But there was not one person who considered him too holy, too divine, or too celestial to touch. Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the casual manner in which we can commune together. Please bless me with this ability to emulate You when in the midst of the lost so they can relax and be open to receiving Your message of a desire to bless them with a loving relationship with You as You have blessed me. I sincerely request this in Your beautiful name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You Faithfully Answer.

 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas. Psalm 65:5 New Living Translation Bible

Prayer is the sweetest conversation freely available to all who belong in Jehovahs family. He always answers.

Many times He answers in mysterious ways that we do not understand until the proper time of revelation (He has done that with me oh so many times).

Many times while conversing with Him, He will guide to verse after verse in the Bible to make sure there is no doubt about what He is saying and blessing us with a clear vision of what His advice is.

There has been so many times when in times of extreme stress in prayer He has blessed me with peace, comfort and assurance. Far better than anything the world has to offer.

When confused about the road to travel or the action to take, He always blesses with advice in His Holy Guidebook (the Bible) on the proper course of action to take or where to go to find a Godly mentor to assist us in the proper course of action to take.

There has been so many times when exhaustion has sapped every molecule of energy from the soul and it feels like sinking into the abyss that in prayer He strengthens the spirit to explode into action with Divine strength.

Why would anyone go to anyone or anything other than the ultimate caregiver, Jehovah? They cannot even begin to compare with Him.

“Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.” — S. D. Gordon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honour of always being able to talk with You. It is the one of greatest gifts You have freely abundantly given me. It is the best part of my day. I rejoice in this treasure in Your beautiful name. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

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.

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He c=Can be a Twister.

DEPARTING DEVILS

What does Satan’s light look like?

Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 New International Version

What does Satan’s light look like?

One way Satan deceives Christians is with the gospel of prosperity.

Oh yes, you become a Christian and God becomes your servant giving you everything you want like a spoiled brat.

Becoming a servant of Christ (where you serve Him, not He serves you) is hard and encompasses a lot of sacrifice.

From my own personal experience and that of others being a Christian means a lot of suffering.

How many so called Christians run away at the first experience of hafting to chose Christ and suffer for it?

Are you ready to lose your friends because you refuse to go out and get drunk on the weekend and have one night stands or to use vulgar language?

Are you ready to lose your job because you refuse to cheat a client?

Are you ready to walk away from your family because they give you the choice between being a Christian or of being a member of your biological family?

Are you willing to leave the comforts of your home country to serve Christ in very primitive settings (no internet, no mobile phones, no MacDonald’s)?

I can say yes I have to each and every one of them.

A non suffering Christian is an oxymoron of words. The two do not belong together. Joseph- Anthony: Green

He can give you all your hearts desire so that you become lazy in your devotion to Christ.

“Give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal and so dishonor the name of my God.” Proverbs 30:8-9 New International Version

There was a time when I lived a very comfortable life. In that time the Bible was never read and there was no communion between God and me (except when I wanted something from Him). Oh, I did plenty of volunteer work but there was no relationship between God and me. That is not a blessing but a curse. You are so content with your life you spend no time with Christ. He can pretend to be an angel of light by being judgmental. He will bring up filth in your past and or condemn you when you fall into temptation.

When I first became a Christian I bragged that I could defeat Satan. He tempted me to have a beer. Being an alcoholic of course one beer led to another and me getting blotto. When I woke up surrounded by empty beer bottle Satan was right there to accuse me. “Look at you, how can you claim to be a Christian when you are nothing but a good for nothing drunk?” I felt deep shame, but thankfully repented to Jesus and then opened the Bible to this verse.

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free Romans. 8:1-2 New International Version

By the way, here is something for you self righteous to think about: When you are quick to point the finger accusingly at others, are you serving Christ, or are you serving Satan?

Do you drive people towards Christ or away from them?

He can pollute the law of grace. “Hey, Jesus died for your sins so it is okay to just go out and do what you want then say a few Hail Mary’s tomorrow.”

Do not ever abuse the precious painful sacrifice Christ made for you by believing you can willfully go out and commit any sin you want and Jesus will for give you.

Do you think you can go out and booze it up on Saturday night, them Go into Church, sing some songs, probably sleep last nights drunk off during the sermon and put the change from your pocket into the collection box and that is okay with Jesus? Do you think having an affair during the week, then pretending nothing happened on Sunday is okay with Jesus? Do you think Jesus understands of you cheated on that test last week is okay?

Unless you repent, you too will all perish. Luke 13:3 New International Version

Now repent not only means admitting what you did, admitting it was wrong and saying you are sorry, but also to STOP DOING IT!!!

He can be a twister.

He can twist Bible verses to say the exact opposite of what they mean. Just look at the above example.

Read about how he twisted the scripture to Jesus when he tempted Him in the desert.

That is why it is best to test what you believe is being said against other Christian teachers.

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

Prayer: Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit our Teacher) please open my eyes to Your truth and the wisdom to see through Satan’s destructive lies. I ask this in the name of He who saw through Satan’s wicked deception in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

H.O.M.E.

I am looking forward to being here.

What do you look forward to experiencing when you go home? What do you think Heaven will be like? I look forward to going home.

H=Home is Heaven. It is where we will be with our beloved family and friends and with our most beloved, Jesus, forever. There we will meet new friends and everybody will share joyous meals together. It will not matter your race, if you are tall or short, fat or skinny, boy or girl. There will be no rich or poor there. We will all be in joyful harmony together. No family fights there.

O= Overjoyed to be where we will face no more sorrow or pain. We shall be constantly over filled with joy every moment for eternity. There will be joy being with Jesus. There will be joy being with old and new friends. There will be joy in a truly fulfilling career Jesus has planned just for us.

M=Meditation, where we can truly sit at the feet of Jesus and share in His marvelous wisdom. It will be a never ending education where we will run to class in eager anticipation of drinking in the wisdom of the greatest teacher. Imagine sitting at the feet of Noah and Moses sharing incredible stories with us. There will be no tests we will be graded on because what we eagerly learn will become a part of us.

E=Employment, this where we will all be employed with a specific career that will be fulfilling and we will look forward to going to forever more. No getting laid off there. No retirement there. Everyone will have a special job suited just for you waiting for you.

Oh how I look forward to going home.

How about you?

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 New International Version

This is what I believe our home will be like. I can’t even imagine what our mansion Jesus has prepared for us looks like. Just think no mortgage or foreclosure there. No burglars or fires or storms to destroy that home. We will always be safe and secure there.

I have not even got into all the fun we will have playing with all the animals there.

Although we look forward to going to Heaven to be with Jesus when we die, we should work hard to bring as many with us as we can. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh sweet Jesus Pryyand (Jesus our best friend) I do ever so much look forward to that special time spent with You and the rest of Your holy family in Heaven.

I long to sit at your feet and listen to Your delicious words of wisdom.

I can’t wait to see what wonderful career You have planned for me in this fantastic kingdom to serve You.

What a privilege it will be to share a meal with all the saints of Your incredible family.

I wait in eager anticipation in the name of our great, mighty and loving king Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.
