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

Good Shall Come to Thee.

CHRIST'S LOVE

 God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him. Ecclesiastes 2:26 Holy Bible New Living Translation.

Have you ever heard the old saying:”Money comes, money goes and in the end we are still unsatisfied.” It is oh so true.

I have seen many chase the illusive dream of having enough money only to be unsatisfied and want more. It is not the money they want but what the money can buy. Money cannot buy happiness is very true.

On the other hand, those that live a Godly life which is pleasing to Jehovah are always blessed with peace, love, joy, wisdom and purpose in their lives.

I know, having lived in both worlds. Doing Jehovahs will guarantees that not only will our physical daily requirement be met but our spiritual cup shall over runneth in abundance.

“Live to please God, and He will breathe on thee His peace. Seek His glory, and He will make thy heart His home. Do His will, and thereby good shall come to thee.” — F. B. Meyer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with Your treasure trove of amazing knowledge. It has enriched my life beyond expectation. Please bless me with the opportunity and resources to share this precious gift with others. I humbly, gratefully request this in the name of the wisest of the wise Jesus Christ. 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 Great Thing to Remember

You are precious to God

 Is How precious is your unfailing love, O God! Psalm 36: 7 New Living Translation Bible

Your fleshly family may and will desert you and or betray you but Your Heavenly Father never will. He has a never ending love for you that never fails.

Your wife or husband (in a normal relationship which is one man, one woman) may betray you and or desert you but Jehovah is always faithful. His love is the most secure love of them all. The same goes true for your children.

Friends will betray you or desert you but Jehovah never will. He is always faithful to you and never betrays you.

Indeed, as absurd as it sounds, you may even desert yourself (You may give up on yourself) but Jehovah never will. Indeed you may betray yourself (You may share intimate details of your life with the wrong folks) but Jehovahs love is the most secure of all love affairs.

“The great thing to remember is that, though our feelings come and go, His love for us does not.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with the purest love that can ever be experienced by anyone. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

We Should Rejoice That

God loves each of

How  also are Your thoughts to me, O God! Psalm 139:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine that, the God of the universe has constant thoughts of how precious we are to Him.

He is not like some fairy tale santa claus who will only bring us gifts if we are nice (which is like bribery) once a year. Gifts we will soon grow bored with a forget them.

Jehovahs thoughts are how much He loves us. Because He loves us so tremendously He only wants what is best for us. It is therefore in our best interests to be obedient to His guidance. We should rejoice that we have such an amazing loving God.  

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, take pleasure in Him] Philippians 4:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always providing just the right amount for me. Not too much so I become a lazy, arrogant glutton. Not too little that I undertake disastrous endeavours. The added benefit of this is that by depending upon You I see Your loving gracious hand in my life that would not be possible any other way. This fills me with awe, love, respect and admiration for You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this Heavenly relationship possible Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Everything We Need to Have A

i love you my lord

 And make the Almighty your gold And your precious silver Job 22:25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

Before we had this monopoly money (worthless paper money created through the fiat system) gold and silver were the universal standard of trade. The more you had the richer you were.

As appealing as it is to have a life filled with physical luxury it is more important to have the crown of righteousness placed upon our head in our Heavenly home by our Beloved King, Jesus Christ.

One time on a talk show on the idiot box (TV) there was a successful athlete who was rich beyond measure married to a stunning beauty living in a luxurious mansion. At the end of his career on this show he talked about all of his championships and awards and his luxurious lifestyle, looked at the man emceeing the show and asked: “Is this all there is? Now what? There has to be something more.”

Yes there is and He is the fulfillment of everything we need to have a meaningful life. His name is Jesus. Once you are blessed with a relationship with Him, there is nothing to compare in the world and there is nothing more you either want or desire.

“Nothing teaches us about the preciousness of the Creator as much as when we learn the emptiness of everything else.” ― Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for revealing to me the riches wealth of us is that of a loving relationship with You. There is nothing to compare with it. I praise You in the name whose friendship is the most priceless treasure I can ever be blessed with, Jesus Christ. 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

Until I Knew How to Love.

 

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

 I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. Romans 12:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a Christian means sacrificing self for Jehovah. We do this by being loving unto others. This is well pleasing to our Beloved.

We dedicate our bodies in service unto Christ by serving others in love. This is well pleasing to Him.

Each of these is an act of worship to Jehovah.

In return, He blesses us with close loving communion with Him.

As we serve others we realize how Jehovah takes care of us by us taking care of others. This increases our love and dedication towards Him.

It need not be travelling to other countries. In almost every country in the world there are ample volunteer opportunities in your own community. As you serve in a Christ like manner others will recognize Christ in you. This in turn will bring others towards being adopted into Jehovahs holy family. Do not expect big returns, from my experience it will only be about one in every ten that give their hearts unto Christ because of your dedicated service. The others will be ungrateful. Do not be disheartened. Even one is precious in the eyes of Jehovah.

“I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah MELEK KABOWD (King of Glory) for the privilege of serving You by being loving towards those around me. May this humble act of worship bring glory unto You and bring those walking in darkness into Your eternal Heavenly light. I worship You in the name of the light of the world with whom I love to worship Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer Must Be

A PRAYING MAN        

 

Prayer is the communion of the regenerated soul with its Divine Parent.

Prayer is God’s own instituted means of obtaining blessings from Him, the Fountain of life.

Prayer must be sincere—we must really be desirous to obtain the blessings we ask.

Prayer must be holy—for if we “regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear us.”

Prayer must be pious—seeking to obtain blessings, not for our own gratification merely—but for God’s glory. Prayer is a relief and comfort to the troubled soul. Prayer must be importunate—for it is the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man, that prevails.

Prayer must be submissive—asking only for what it is God’s will to bestow. Prayer must be in love— love for our Heavenly Father and prayer for our fellow man, whether they be in Jehovahs Divine family or not. Prayer must be reverent—for our God is a consuming fire.

Prayer must be humble—for we are base, and sinful, and unworthy to lift up our eyes to heaven.

Prayer must be persevering—for men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Prayer must be particular—for generalities mean little or nothing.

Prayer must be universal—entering into everything, all the concerns of life, all the means of grace.

Prayer must be of all kinds—social, domestic, private, spontaneous but never ritualized for that is a stench and insult to our Heavenly Beloved. Prayer must be grateful—abounding in thanksgiving.

Prayer must be expectant—waiting and watching for answers.

Prayer must be believing—we must ask in faith. Prayer must be consistent with the Word of God —we may ask for everything God has promised.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the ultimate treasure, the Your loving gift of communion with You through prayer. It is a precious jewel that I carry close to me, not just in our morning and evening conversations but those which we share throughout the day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I deeply desire to walk with and talk with every day Jesus Christ, my best friend. 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
