Using these Effective Christian Weapons

 Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life. Proverbs 21:21 New Living Translation

There was a comical saying in the seventies that said the devil made me do it, in reference to why we do bad things.

That is a lie.

The devil tempts us but it is in our own free will that knowingly, willingly commit the sin.

When temptation comes our way we should use the Christian weapons Jehovah supplies us with for victory.

Number one on the list is common sense. The number one rule is that if you are single, or married never be alone with anyone of the opposite sex (unless they are your husband or wife). You can be alone in the library or in a restaurant but never in a place where there is no one else there.

Number two is if Jesus would not be there neither should you be. So if your buddies are doing drugs or going to the bar to pick up babes (or hunks if they are women) do you think Jesus would join them for that activity?

Number three is to memorize victory verses so when the devil temps you like he did Jesus in the wilderness we, like Jesus use Bible verses to defeat our opponent. And yes that is very effective from personal experience.

Number four is to have a close relationship with Jehovah so that when the temptation is too strong for you, your first defence will be to call upon our mighty Heavenly Daddy who will come to our rescue. Again speaking from personal experience this is very effective. Using these effective Christian weapons will bring life to us that is close to our Heavenly Father and oh what a marvellous life that is.

“Only he who flings himself upward when the pull comes to drag him down, can hope to break the force of temptation. Temptation may be an invitation to hell, but much more is it an opportunity to reach heaven. At the moment of temptation, sin and righteousness are both very near the Christian; but, of the two, the latter is the nearer.” — Charles H. Brent

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chereb (Lord the is my Sword) for blessing me with the ultimate weapon to defeat satan and his minions with that is always victorious. I exalt You in the name of the unbeatable warrior King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Get Away Fast.

furnace of hell

Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Galatians 6:7 New Living Testament

This is why it is best to get away fast.

Get away from those who are walking in wickedness. They will slowly bring you into the dark side and destruction.

You do not believe me, look what happened with Lot. Read the whole account. First he camped outside of the city, then he was at the gates and finally he was living amongst them. The same will happen to you.

You can not wallow with pig unless you are willing to go into the mire with them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This is why you need to be more concerned about Jehovahs kingdom that satisfying the flesh.

Look at the ads on TV and your ipad and phone. They all say buy, buy , buy. We will give you easy credit. In the end you end up being miserable and a slave to the credit card companies.

When you are in communion with our loving Heavenly Father you are blessed with abundant peace, love, joy and purpose in life.

There are only two choices in life: be a slave to society and be miserable or be a child of Jehovahs and be loved and filled with peace. I prefer Jehovah. Which do you prefer? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) always shine Your bright light of righteousness into my life so as to prevent me from straying into the damnation of darkness. I sincerely request this in the name of the light of the world 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.

We All Need a Transformation.

jesus makes you into flower

 And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see ads all the time to transform folks. Maybe it is their teeth or their skin to make them look more beautiful on the outside.

We all need a transformation.

But the one we need the most can only come from The Holy Spirit. And, that transformation of course is the transformation of our spirit (not our heart). This is not a one off transformation but a lifetime one. We will be constantly metamorphosing until we reach Heavens Gate. Even then, we will still be changing our hearts and minds under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit.

For me, Jehovah has moved in stages just like going to school. Once I have passed grade one then it will be time to move on to grade two. And so on and so on. In forty years I am just past grade four (talk about a slow learner huh?).

There is no failing just repeating the lesson in a different manner until it is ingrained in our mind and spirit. He is patient and teaches us at our own pace.

Attending Jehovah Divine school of Righteousness is a life time commitment. Our graduation ceremonies will take place in Heaven with Jesus Christ handing out the awards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the honour of being enrolled in the most prestigious school ever. Your school of holiness and righteousness. I apologize for the times I was a difficult student. Please bless me with Your ability to be such a magnificent teacher as You to those around me so they can be enrolled in Your awesome school as well. I humbly beseech You in the name of the greatest Teacher to ever bless this planet Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Daring and Beautiful Creative Reversal.

CHRIST'S LOVE

 

He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Christ was hanging on the cross He was suffering ridicule by those who hated Him. Unimaginable agony in His body. Piercing heart ache watching His loved ones watch Him die and no doubt demons laughing at Him.

Three days later He rose from grave and fulfilled Jehovahs prearranged glorious victory to bring all of His children into His family of every race, colour and creed.

Talk about a turn of events huh?

“In a daring and beautiful creative reversal, God takes the worst we can do to Him and turns it into the very best he can do for us.”Malcolm Guite

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) that the worse possible manner of death known to the world was used to accomplish the most beautiful one in eternity. In Your amazing name I exalt You. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Shouts in the Street.

search for jesus

 This is something we all need to take heed of today.

She raises her voice in the markets; She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather]; At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:

“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning? How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,  How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?

“If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.

“Because I called and you refused [to answer], I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer]; And you treated all my counsel as nothing And would not accept my reprimand, I also will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when your dread and panic come,

When your dread and panic come like a storm, And your disaster comes like a whirlwind, When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].

“Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer; They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me.

Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel, 
And they spurned all my rebuke.

“Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.

“For the turning away of the naive will kill them,

And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them.

(Unfortunately I have seen too much of this even in today’s society, especially amongst the liberals, homosexuals and so called intellectuals).

“But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.” 

(I have seen this and am living this today. It is a great comfort and instills great peace of the heart). Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Ignore wisdom and pay the price in a living Hell on this earth and an eternal one in the next life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with Your indisputable truth. It has enlightened me to a life free from the darkness around me and the gift of walking in Your righteous light all the way to Heaven. I praise You in the name of the light of the world 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.

All scripture is for instruction.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 All Scripture is God breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]. 2 Timothy 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

A desire to know merely to know, is curiosity.

But a desire to know in order to do, is godliness.

I have met many that can quote any Bible verse for any situation. When asked if they put it into application in their lives they just give me a dumb look and walk away.

I have met a few of the wise that can quote a Bible verse for any situation and explain what it means and how the Holy Spirit helped them to put it into application in their lives. Those are the ones I will listen to and respect.

“To know God is to know that our obedience is due to Him.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wisdom and fortitude to obey what has been taught to me by Your wise teacher The Holy Spirit. Doing so blesses me with being a good and faithful servant. I edify You in the name of Your most obedient son 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.

You Cannot Legislate Folks To.

 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you?You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. James 4:1-3 Holy Bible New Living Translation

DARKNESS

Today everybody screams that if you do not think and believe like I do, you are a sexist, racist, or homophobic. Well, this is the way of the liberals who are very intolerant of others all the while living a life worse than those they are condemning. From my experience, liberals are hateful, closed minded and dictatorial.

Just look at the recent event in the United States where peaceful mostly white Catholic school students (Covington High School) were visiting a cultural memorial and they were viciously attacked by those who appeared to me to be black hate mongers. Then the native came along (please do not tell me he just happened to be walking down the street with a drum in his hands, it appeared to me to be all set up) and started banging his drum. Did he not lie to the leftist media and say he felt threatened by a student who just stood there smiling while the native was banging a drum in his face? The leftist media took off with is as well as numerous other lefties and condemned the student who where the victims.

I personally find it easy to discuss opposing point of views with conservatives. Most (not all) are respectful of opposing views as long as they are not shoved down their throats.

Some of the liberal ideals are good as are some of the ideas of the conservatives. Why do we not just sit down and listen to each other, then have a referendum of the people. Which ever way the people decide is the way the society will go. That is true democracy. You cannot legislate folks to believe in what you believe and cannot force them to live the life you think is right. Now we do have standardized laws like being against the law to commit murder but there are also international laws that state that as long as I am not hurting anyone else I can, will and do live the life I choose (which by the way, is by living in accordance with the Holy Spirits guidance).

The governments of today and the media are pulling folks apart rather than being strong morally and uniting them together. Yes, both liberal and conservative are equally to blame. I believe they do it to gain power and prestige for themselves rather than being honourable and serving those with in their community.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

Christians are to be different. We are to guide others to Christs ever lasting government by our actions and then by teaching them His standard of behaviour that is acceptable in His Eternal government.

The more policies the government enacts that force people to behave a certain way, the less of a community we become. We may see the issue we pushed for go away, but we may also see people more cautious of each other, people less likely to ask for or offer help, less effective teamwork and innovation. The less they are comfortable with others and become more isolationist. This is a recipe for disaster. Anonymous

Prayer: Please Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me that my life is governed by Your righteousness rather than the hatred of the world. Please bless me to be ab ambassador of peace and helpfulness rather than a devil of division and war. In short please bless me to walk like my hero Jesus did in this wicked world so as to guide the hurting to Your loving arms. I humbly request this in the name of my mentor Jesus Christ. Amen

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