It Is an Abuse To

THE FIRES OF HELL

Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God. Matthew 3:8 New Living Translation Bible

I have experienced it numerous times when a teacher. A student is caught being naughty. To avoid punishment they promise not to misbehave again. No sooner does class resume then they go right back to doing the same naughty things. The hammer comes down hard on them then even though they beg for forgiveness and promise not to commit the offence again. Not just to punish them for being naughty but to punish them for abusing teachers grace and to make an example out of them to the other student so they behave in class. It works fantastically. If the student refuses to behave they are expelled from class. If the parents argue about it there is a meeting with all the parents. It is explained to them the child refuses to behave themselves. Because of this I cannot teach the class. Vote for it. How many parents want that naughty child to come back in to class. The overwhelming number refuses and chases the naughty child and their parent out of class (this was in China).

So too it is with Jehovah.

There is no sense in confessing to any sin without any intention to take the necessary action to stop committing the offence. Your confession is meaningless. You will forfeit any right to enter Heaven and will instead be cast into eternal damnation in Hell for your wicked deeds.

“It is an abuse to confess any kind of sin, mortal or venial, without a will to be delivered from it, since confession was instituted for no other end.” — François de Sales

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with the wisdom  and strength to purge myself of that which is detestable unto You and repulsive unto me. I worship You in the name of He who cleansed the leper who was willing to dip into the Jordan river 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.

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.

Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?

EXAMINE YOURSELF
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4   Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                            

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumours, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying. All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offences and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

They are Easy Prey

christ defeats demons

And he who turns away from evil makes himself a prey. Now the Lord saw it, And it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man And was amazed that there was no one to intercede [on behalf of truth and right]; Therefore His own arm brought salvation to Him,
And His own righteousness sustained Him.  
Isaiah 59:15-16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it states that Christian babies are easy pray for Satan. I know this to be true from personal experience.

Shortly after the baptism of the Holy Spirit a experience came where I thought I was stronger and smarter that satan and he whipped my butt and shoved my nose in it when he easily defeated me. When the Lord decided that satan had gloated enough He stepped in and reassured me that when I repent I was forgiven and to remember my lesson. Which, I have to this day.

That is why it is of the utmost importance for us more mature Christians to come along side of the weaker ones and share our testimonies with them so they do not lose heart. It is just as important that we pray for them as that is one of our most important weapons to defeat our hated foe ( satan and his henchmen).

We who have experience are duty bound to share it with the inexperienced to help prevent them from suffering the same shame and pain as we did. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for teaching me how to conquer satan when he attacks and how to gain forgiveness when I repent whenever I fall. May I be blessed with passing this encouragement and wisdom on to those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am. May I be receptive to those teachers who are more advanced than I to their guidance. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the best Teacher of all 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.

Will Find You Out.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

You will have sinned against the Lord; and be sure that your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is very prevalent today for folks to think they can do whatever they want with no repercussions. That is a fools dream.

On every computer there is a small camera at the top. Any good hack can turn it on and film you without your knowledge (which is why I put a piece of gum over mine. Not that I am doing anything wrong but rather I cherish my privacy). Of course the hacks cannot do this if your computer is turned off.

However, you cannot turn off the eyes of Jehovah.

He sees your wickedness and warns you to repent.

If you arrogantly refuse then He will bring His righteous hammer down hard on you.

Most times the evil you have perpetrated in solitude will be brought out in the public eye and that will increase your shame.

You cannot hide anything from Jehovah. He is waiting for you to repent. But if you refuse, look out. You will pay severely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees ) bless me with the constant presence of the Holy Spirit to guide my words and actions because I love You too much to ever want to hurt You with them or make You ashamed of me for saying or doing them. I humbly request this in the name of He who always carefully chose His words and actions to always bring glory to You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Prodigal Cat.

You are precious to God

Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood.  And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living.  But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want.  Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.  And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!  I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”’

 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.  And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

“But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry;  for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ Luke 15:11-21 New King James Version

We adopted a cat we call Sammy. He is always, loved and well cared for but one day snuck outside and refused to come back in. The outside world looked too inviting. He has no front claws to defend himself against the wild cats and cannot hunt.

Christians are adopted and well cared for by Jesus. For some the outside world looks tempting and they leave.

Just as I searched for and tried to coax Sammy in to no avail so too does the Holy Spirit.

Just as I gave up and walked away so too does the Holy Spirit give up and walk away from us when we refuse to obey His calling.

Just as Sammy will be welcomed back so too are wayward Christians when they repent and come back to Christ.

Sammy has returned home and has no desire to ever go outside again. When we open the door he runs the other way. When sin tempts us and draws us away from Jesus let us pray we are as smart as Sammy

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Father that when we stray, as we all do, and come to our senses and return to you with repentance You gladly accept us back into Your Holy family. I give thanks for this amazing blessing in the name of He whose blood made this gift possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What kind of a Runner are You?

                                              

Run away from youthful lusts—pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those [believers] who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What kind of a runner are you?

Do you run as fast to your Bible as you do to porno sites on line?

Would you drink from a septic tank?

Why not?

Well just as the feces in the septic tank will make your body sick, so too will porno sites pollute your mind (and before you women go pointing fingers at us men like we are pigs, there is a large majority of women that watch that filth as well).

When we are youths we are inexperienced and easy prey for the alluring lies of satan.

That is why we need mature Christians to guide us away from the destruction fantasies (once you fall for satan you will quickly find out it is no fun but many times pure living Hell, just ask any junkie).

Now notice I said mature and not older. Someone can be older in years but very immature in their walk with Christ. Their advice is useless and indeed many times very disastrous.

It is the duty of us older Christians to warn those who are young in their walk with Christ when they are fallowing the wrong path. Be patient with them as Christ is patient with you. Be firm with them as Christ is firm with you. Be respectful with them just as Christ is with you (that includes allowing them to fall into the temptation if that is their choice but to welcome them back if they repent).

Satans temptations always lead to destruction. That is why we need mature Christians to guide us away from them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for Your Divine intercession when satan temps me with destructive lusts. Thank you for Your providence in bringing mature Christians to counsel me when I foolishly begin to stray. I praise You in the name of He who resisted satans temptations in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen

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