We Must Be Prepared to Give It All Up.

SERVE THE LORD

And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. Matthew 19:29 New King James Version

Just as Christ gave up everything for us so too must we be willing to give up all for Him.

 

Think of it like this: you are living in a mansion with servants and living a fantastic life.

Would you voluntarily surrender that to live with the poor in filthy slums?

On top of that you know that many people will make fun of you, torture you and ultimately force you to die a painful humiliating death?

That is what Jesus did for us in leaving His mansion in Heaven to live amongst us.

He was made fun of, was tortured and died a humiliating and painful death so that we would have the privilege of enjoying our mansion in Heaven.

So when Christ calls you to give up a comfortable life to serve Him are you going to whine about it or thank Him for the privilege of serving such a magnificent and loving King?

In my service to Him I have been called to live in very difficult circumstances and it only developed a deeper and closer relationship with Him. When I reflect on the past thirty years of suffering it is impossible to do without thinking of the wonderful closeness I was blessed with, with our King and am in great gratitude for Him for it.

And whenever you are experiencing your tribulation and sorrow (and you will experience tribulation) just remember what Jesus experienced for you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Adonai (The Lord is sovereign) help me to surrender my life completely to Your sovereign will. I know You know what is best for me and how best to serve You. I humbly beseech You in the name of he who gave up His heavenly throne for us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Right Confession.

REPENT

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. James 5:16 New International Version

 

What I believe James is referring to here is when we do or say something wrong to another we are to confess what we did or said and apologize (that by the way is what repent means).

This does not mean we are to apologize for thoughts we have but never said.

Let’s face it, if we did that we would spend most of time apologizing wouldn’t we and it would be very embarrassing as well?

Think of the things people would be apologizing to you for.

Would you really want to hear that?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with the Confession, strength, wisdom  and grace to sincerely and humbly apologize to _________  (write in the name of someone, whether Christian or not, to whom you need to apologize to) for _________ (write in the offense you committed).

 

Please use this as an opportunity to heal any wounds that were inflicted and use this as an opportunity for us to grow stronger in our relationship.

 

I request this from the deepest part of my heart in the name of He who taught His disciples how to repent after His resurrection Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Best Relationship Advice

GODS FAITHFULNESS

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding Proverbs 3:5 New King James Version

God knows not only you but the other person as well. There are many things in the other person that you do not see but He does. So therefore it is best to always trust Him in any and all relationships.   It will prevent a lot of heartache, frustration and suffering later on in your life.

 

That guy may be a smooth talker but in reality is an abusive jerk. Man have I ever met a lot of them.   Personally I have found those who like to dress in luxuriant styles are snakes in the grass.

 

That woman may appear to be sweet and innocent but in reality she is manipulative, domineering and a self centered emotional thief. They will suck the life out of you quicker that a vacuum cleaner.

 

That person may seem goofy because they are shy but when you talk with them you discover they are very wise. Many of the wisest men and women I have had the privilege to become friends with I at first thought they were are brite as a burnt out light bulb but were very intelligent,caring, respectful, loving and wise.

That person may seem like a snob but in reality is just a loner (just because we are loners does not mean we have mental problems either). I am a loner yet most people consider me very deep, caring and supportive once they get to know me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Rohi (God our Sheppard) guide me towards those who are loving, caring and respectful and away from the life suckers (those who suck the life out of you). I sincerely ask this in the name of He who was open to the loving ones and closed to the lurking wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Does That Answer Your Question?

THE THREE PARTS OF PRAYER

 

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows James 1:27 New King James Version

It has been three weeks since I did volunteer work at a seniors home because of a flu outbreak.

I prayed to Jehovah to bless me with an answer if they wanted me to return.

That day as mom and I were doing errands she picked up a bundle of community newspapers and took them to the seniors home. I did not know she intended to do this.

As we were delivering the papers I encountered many of the residents and the staff I volunteer with. They were all very happy to see me and the staff informed me that the flu epidemic was over and they want me to return this week.

When I got home there was a feeling like Jehovah saying:” Does that answer your question?”

I laughed and thanked Him for His wonderful way of answering my prayer.

Now I have returned to volunteering at the seniors home and we are all very glad things have gotten back to “normal”.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our Healer) for healing those sick in the seniors home and thank you that I can at long last return to serving you there to bring glory to Your marvelous name. I exalt you in the name of He who healed Peters sick mother Jesus Christ. Amen.

Until An Opportune Time.

SATANS TRAP

Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:13 New King James Version

 

This is something for every addict to remember.

Do not believe for a second that if you have recovered from an addiction like alcoholism that temptation will never rear its ugly head again.

The devil will wait until an opportune time to strike you so as to defeat you.

 

That is why it is important to have Christian mentors and support at all times.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

 

That is why it is important to memorize Scripture Verses to throw at him when He tempts you.

 

That is why it is important for you to maintain a constant relationship with Christ so the Holy Spirit will be there to help you overcome the temptation when it comes (and it will).

Christians who try to stand alone are doomed to fall. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

I have used this method very successfully for many years with overcoming alcoholism.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for blessing me with the Divine protection You abundantly provide through Your Word, Your Spirit Helper and the mentors You so graciously provide to rescue me from the wicked ones wiles. I praise You in the name of the mighty warrior king who victoriously defeated him on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It Is Good For Me.

PURPOSE OF GOD

It is good for me that I have been afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes” Psalm 119:71 New King James Version

We all make mistakes. Wise men learn from them and correct them, fools keep on repeating them. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                        

When we are children we are taught to obey rules or their will be painful consequences like a spanking (except for the satanic politically correct who refuse to discipline their children and then wonder why there are so many problems in society today).                 

When we become Christians we are adopted into Gods family and are children.                         

God has rules which must be obeyed or there will be painful consequences (He is not politically correct). 

                                                                                                            

Sometimes we can all be stubborn and Jehovah will bless us with afflictions to get our attention that we are being disobedient.                                                                               

When we repent (which means we top being disobedient and saying we are sorry) He heals us and upon reflection back we see He did it for our own good.                                                  

In this we grow from those fed milk to those who are able to eat meat. This to me, means that when we first become Christians we learn the simple relationship with Christ. Through our afflictions we grow more mature and solid in our relationship with Christ.

The really important thing in life is not the avoidance of mistakes, but the obedience of faith. By obedience the man is led step by step to correct his errors, whereas nothing will ever happen to him if he doesn’t get going. Paul Tournier.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ElOhim (God our creator) for rescuing this child of Yours when I strayed from Your flock and Your on going work to mould me into the child You know I can be. I praise You in the name of Your most obedient chid Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He is Out of His Mind.

HE GIVES PEACE

But when His family heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, “He is out of His mind.” Mark 3:21 New International Version

When your family and friends laugh at you, mock you and or consider you crazy for giving up all worldly desires to follow the path Christ has for you in life, just remember, Jesus’ family thought He was nuts too.

 

If you give up a successful career to go work in the slums or when you walk away from the booze, sex and drugs, when you walk away from the malls and walk toward Jesus of course those around you will not understand. What they do not and cannot understand they label as crazy because it does not fit their idea of normal.

I would rather be crazy for Jesus than be normal and in Hell.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

It will be painful to have to say goodbye to those close to you but Jesus will reward you with a solid loving, respectful relationship with Him and with those in His divine family.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing me of the wounds inflicted upon me whose words cut deep because of my choice to walk with You. Please forgive them for they do not know what they are doing. I meekly thank you and ask for this forgiveness in the name of He who forgave those who mocked Him as he suffered upon the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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