Considering the Magnitude of Its Importance

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 And just as it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment. Hebrews 9:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unaided human reason, we repeat, never did, never can, assure us that there is a future state at all.

There is life after death, we all know it.

What will our future look like when we have passed on to the other side ( when we depart our fleshly body in death and enter into the unknown eternity of the spiritual world)?

All human reason and imagination is is foolishness and imagination.

Considering that our presence in this world we be for an eternity we had better go to the most reliable source. That is not going to physics, or to new age teachers or psychologists, nor to scientists.

There is only One whose absolute truth will bless us or curse us with a fainting glimpse of our eternal destiny.

His revelation will either fill our spirit with joy, anticipation and assurance or it will envelope our spirits with terror, anguish and anger. His name of course is Jehovah. He will and does pull back the curtain of eternity to give us a glimpse of our eternal home, whether it be Heaven or whether it be Hell.

But now [that extraordinary purpose and grace] has been fully disclosed and realized by us through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus who [through His incarnation and earthly ministry] abolished death [making it null and void] and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 2 Timothy 1:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Considering the magnitude of its importance of eternity to us, we had better listen and take heed to what the Holy Spirit teaches us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with the incontestable truth that only comes from You. Thank you for teaching it to my limited mind in a way that the truth can be grasped and understood. Thank you for assisting me in incorporating this truth into my daily life. Yours is the only school that I am addicted to attending every day because of its amazing lessons learned at the feet of the wisest teach, the Holy Spirit. I exalt Thee in the name of the supreme Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

A Man Who Has No.

 

Like a city that is broken down and without walls [leaving it unprotected]
Is a man who has no self-control over his spirit [and sets himself up for trouble]. Proverbs 25:28 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Once a long time ago I played a chess game while stoned on marijuana and it was the quickest game my opponent ever played and the easiest win as well.

Many decades later (and no longer a pot head) the Holy Spirit brought back that memory to teach me a valuable lesson. The reason the opponent won so easily was because the pot diminished my ability to use reason and logic.

So too it is with our temper.

When we begin to lose our temper we begin to be easy pickings for our opponent and the devil will use this to our advantage.

To lose your temper is to lose the battle. To depend upon the Holy Spirit to control our temper and bless us with wisdom, grace and strength is to gain victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah

If instead we are wise and depend upon the Holy Spirit for guidance, He will bless us with Supreme Divine logic and reasoning, including when to get out of there and calm down. Indeed, He will guide us to avoid those who love to instigate fights for no other reason than to watch folks blow up and make fools of themselves.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) bless me with the strength to shut my mouth and remove myself from situations that agitate my patience and with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and strength to deal with agitators who perversely enjoy stirring up the pot. I ask this in the name of my humble (humbleness mean to keep your temper under control) King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Love is the Reason.

God loves each of

I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. Proverbs 8:17 New King James Version

I was pondering the reason for us to worship Jehovah?

Yes it is nice to receive His blessings in our daily lives.

Yes it is nice to have the promise of Heaven.

But for me, the reason is because such an awesome God loves me and wants to share His fellowship with me. Because of this blessing I can not help adoring Him and worshipping Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Immanuel (God amongst us) for the amazing privilege of enjoying such an everlasting loving relationship with You walking with us and talking with us every day. I sing hallelujah in Your gracious name. Amen.

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

Why the Bible Thumpers Are Wrong.

USE DISCRECION

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 New International Version

I have seen and experienced many good intentioned but wrong minded Christians who try to shove their version of the Bible down people’s throats. As a result they do more to drive unbelievers away from Christ than guide them to Christ. Consequently you are serving Satan rather than serving Christ.

 

I know because that is exactly what happened to me with that Satanic cult Jehovah’s Witnesses and with some people who were recovered alcoholics and drug addicts that became born again Christians. Because of their in your face method they drove me away from reading the Bible, praying or having anything to do with Christianity for many years.

The way that I find to be most productive is to begin with living the Christian life. Then pray that Jehovah arranges for you to encounter someone who is open to receiving Christ’s message.

When they see how you live they will be curious and inquire about why you live a different lifestyle. That is the best opportunity to share the message.

Now of course this includes studying your Bible and carrying it with you every day so that you are prepared.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God ) teach me when and how to use the correct opportunities to share You with those who are ready to hear Your Word.

I sincerely ask this in the name of He who waited thirty years before beginning His ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

 

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

For a Good Reason.

BECAUSE OF MY FAITH

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.  If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you James 1:2-5 New International Version

 

Jehovah allows us to endure trials and tribulations for a good reason. We do not know nor understand it at the time. We may even feel we are being unfairly punished.

God is the creator and we are the creation.

Sometimes He has to put us through the furnace to burn off that which bad for us whether it be in our personality or in relationships or in attitudes.

Most times we are not even aware of those bad traits or attitudes.

 

Speaking from personal experience it was only after my greatest trials and tribulation that I understood what he was wisely doing in my life. I am eternally grateful for that and that he did not listen to my cries during the tribulation to stop it. Every single trial and tribulation was for a specific reason.

Jehovah loves you and enjoys it even less than you do to watch you suffer.

So, even though you may not (and you usually do not) understand what is happening or why if you are going through tribulation have faith that the Master Potter is working you into a beautiful creation that is fit for heaven.

Even though you do not see the light at the end of the tunnel have faith that Jehovah only has you in the furnace as long as is necessary and not one minute more.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hosanna (God our maker) for the trials and tribulations brought into my life. Even though they have been difficult I now know they were for my own good.

I give thanks for these in the name of he who endured the tribulation of the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

I Desire To.

HE IS LISTENING

 

 

I desire to reason with God. Job 13:3 New King James Version

God is not the do as I say not do as I do type of God. He wants you to reason with Him and question Him.

 

I know there have been many times when I tried to argue with God and give very legitimate reason for not doing as I know He desired for me to do. He did not get angry and strike me with a lightening bolt. Rather he guided me to scripture that explains why He wants me to do something (that does not necessarily mean He explains why I must do the mission He is sending me on but rather that I must trust Him). Sometimes this went on for days. He is patient with me because he knows I have an obedient heart towards Him and will ultimately surrender to His will.

 

I like to laugh and say I have never won an argument with God but really in surrendering to Gods will I won. I may have lost the argument but won in my life.

“He who asks a question remains a fool for five minutes. He who does not ask, remains a fool forever.”  Chinese Proverb.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for being so patient and wise with me in our occasional debates and for enlightening me with Your pure wisdom which is always for my best. I sing Your praises in the name of the greatest debater Jesus Christ. Amen.

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