To be Nothing.

he make priceless art

Even though I am nothing at all.2 Corinthians 12:11 New Living Translation

Saul was a pretty big man in the Jewish community. It was when He met Christ that he learned to be nothing of Himself so that he would be everything for Christ.

Notice I said he “would be” not could be.

It was only when Saul died that Paul began to live.

So too it is with us.

We the individual must die so that we will become children of Jehovah and servants of Christ. It must no longer be me first in our lives but Christ first in everything in our lives that we truly become royal servants.

“Believers have not been distinctly guided to see that nothing is more natural and beautiful and blessed than to be nothing, so that God may be all…” — Andrew Murray

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the honour of being a humble servant of the most high of King of Kings. It is a great tribute to receive such a high calling. I glorify You in Your highest majestic name. Amen

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

What is Idolatry?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty. Revelation 21:27 New Living Translation

Jesus is talking about those forbidden from entering Heavens Gate.

Do you see how repulsive idolatry is to Him?

You think you do not worship idols?

How about your pets? I have seen many pets rule the house instead of the owner. Yes I love our pets like they were my own children but instead of worshiping them, I thank Jehovah for blessing me with such loving creatures. See the difference? Continue reading

On an Admitted

HIS INSTRUCTION

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16:11 New Living Translation

A presumed fullness is when we brag that we are full and have no need of Jehovah. It is arrogant and is bragging. Beware. What is freely given unto you can and will be freely taken. Then you will end up with nothing. I have seen it oh so many times.

Then, there is the Christian perspective.

We empty our wants and desires for Jehovahs wants and desires. In the process we are blessed with love, purpose and spiritual treasures beyond compare. We may not be wealthy in the worlds eyes but boy are we ever rich in Jehovahs eyes.

“God is more disposed to move on an admitted emptiness than a presumed fullness.” — Tommy Tenn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with the most nutritious feast that is ever freely available to all seeking a fulfilling spiritual, mental and physical life. I praise You in the name of He who fills us daily with His Divine love Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Then, My Spirit Soars

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

 I pray to you, O Lord, my rock.  Do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you are silent, I might as well give up and die. Psalm 28:1 New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my life I felt like giving up and dying. It seemed as if everything I touched was destroyed. It seemed as if I gave everything and there was nothing left. It seemed as if I was the only soul in this world. In those times I went to the Lord and begged for death.

He patiently and lovingly guided me to verse after verse in the Bible affirming His love and care for me. Other times He came personally to me and filled my spirit with His love and reassurance.

One thing I noticed in reflection though, was that it was when I was at the end of my rope that He began an amazing transformation in me. He had to wait until I was ready and willing to surrender my will to His.

The other is that it was life changing in a manner in which shall never be forgotten but joyfully remembered.

Many times when I have felt like giving up I spend time with my Beloved . Then, my spirit soars like an eagle in the sky and my hope is renewed. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesesus Yasha (The Lord my Savior ) for saving me from disaster after disaster. Thank you for the mysterious and numerous ways in which You brought salvation to me. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood saved me from damnation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Same Should be True for Us.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Don’t be so angry with us, Lord.  Isaiah 64:9 New Living Translation

This suggests that Jehovah controls His temper but look out when His patience is exhausted.

The same should be true for us.

Yes we are to control our temper but there must be a price to pay when someone exhausts our patience (many times they do it intentionally because they like to watch someone blow up and then stand back and laugh. All the while acting innocent.).

We as Christians are not to extract revenge. However, we do have a big daddy in Heaven above whom we can and should call upon to extract the proper punishment towards the offenders to either bring them to repentance or to warn them to stop because next time will be so much worse.

And, from my experience when the Lord brings the hammer down, it is very unpleasant to the offender.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense. The God of vengeance) for blessing me with confidence in Your true justice being executed upon those who do me wrong without just cause. Thank You my Love that when we repent before Your patience is exhausted You are a forgiving God. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made my forgiveness possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Are Always Better Than

laugh at fools

Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense. Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions. Proverbs 18:1-2 New Living Translation

Man, don’t we see this on the TV and internet far too often (which why I am glad I have enough sense not to get involved.

In most arguments either one or both folks are closed minded. I am right and I refuse to let the facts get in the way of my belief. is their mantra. It is an exercise in frustration and futilely attempting to talk with them.

I always tell them: “There is only so much stupidity I can tolerate in a day and you have used up your max.” and then walk away.

The fools stand there and grin from eyeball to eyeball stupidly believing they have won the argument.

What gets me though is that when things go south real quick because the refuse to listen to the wise, rather than take responsibility for it, they blame the wise.

I have both experienced it and seen it. It left me standing there dumb founded at their idiocy.

And, here is the real kicker, the fools not only refuse to learn their lesson, they continue to go out and do the same thing again and again. It makes me wonder how they have lived so long. And, yes, the older generation is the worse for this behaviour.

“Discussions are always better than arguments because an argument is to find out who is right, and a discussion is to find what is right.”Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with the knowledge of when to walk away from fools whose favourite hobby is arguing. They are nothing but senseless thieves who rob me of peace. I thank you in the name of He who never tolerated fools when He ministered here on this planet Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Are Opportunities to Prove

gods rescue

 So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment. 2 Peter 2:9 New Living Translation

When I was a baby Christian I used to cry out to my Beloved:” Father, why are these terrible things happening to me?” I used to think I was being punished because of some wrong committed. Sometimes they were but most were not.

Now, a more mature Christian (Not fully mature mind you, that will only happen in Heaven) I ask: “ Lord what are You trying to teach me in these difficult circumstances (and yes, there is always a lesson to learn)? Or ‘Lord, if I have offended You please reveal to me that which displeases You and how to correct the situation.” However one thing that is always abundantly clear and for which there is great gratitude is the knowledge that He is walking through them with me and will deliver me in the appropriate time and in the appropriate manner.

“Trials are not enemies of faith but are opportunities to prove God’s faithfulness.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) that no matter the trouble that comes my way, You will walk through them with me. Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (God the Revealer of Mysteries ) for revealing so much to me through these experiences. I praise You in the name of He who suffered so much for me out of Divine love Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.
