Let Us Also Work for It

HARD WORK

 And He did this to fully equip and perfect the saints (God’s people) for works of service. Ephesians 4:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I remember when being a tutor in China oh so many times a Chinese would come to me and beg me to help them pass an exam so they could get a visa to Canada. When I asked them when they exam was, most times their reply was in a month. As their level of English was very low they were informed that it would take a lot of work but could be accomplished. Their reaction was that as the teacher that was my responsibility. In other words, they expected me to do all the work while they put minimal effort into the task. Of course they failed miserably and of course their reaction was always they same. They blamed me.

How many have the same attitude towards Jehovah.

Say there is going to be a test at school. Instead of studying for the test the night before you fervently pray for Jehovah to give you the knowledge to pass the test. When you fail you cry baby to Jehovah that it is His fault when in reality it is your own fault for being so lazy and irresponsible.

Here is the way it works properly.

Sometimes Jehovah will do the work for you because the task is too great. This is to reveal His power and wisdom to us which brings praise, respect and adoration.

Sometimes we have to work in conjunction with the Holy Spirit. This is to teach us to put forward and effort while trusting in the Holy Spirits guidance, no matter how unconventional it is.

Sometimes Jehovah provides the tools but we have to do the work. This is to teach us to take responsibility and to teach us to have confidence in the skills Jehovah has blessed us with.

“Whatsoever we beg of God, let us also work for it.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Thank you ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for blessing me with being able to determine which form of work is necessary for me to accomplish the task You have assigned for me to do in my privilege of being my Beloved King Jesus in Heavens free will servant. I exalt You in His magnificent name. Amen

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

He is the One Who Loves You Most.

                                        

For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39 Holy Bible Amplified Version

 If we were all perfect Jesus would not have been required to suffer and die that horrible death on the cross.

Jehovah loves us all.

What pierces His heart is those that reject Him.

However, when we turn from our wicked ways and repent unto Him He is quick to forgive us and lovingly accept us completely into His Holy family.

That of course does not mean that we are perfect after we come to Christ. I believe He allows some sinful attributes to remain in us to keep us humble, both before Him as well as to our fellow man.

Do not believe the lies satan tells you that you are not good enough or that you are filthy before a Holy Gods eyes.

I know, I fell for that scam but the Holy Spirit rescued me and share the truth that when I repent I am forgiven and am gladly welcomed back into my Heavenly family.

Read your Bible, especially the Old Testament and you will discover that many of the most wicked sinners became the greatest saints.

It will happen to you as well when you surrender your heart, mind and body unto our healing loving Father in Heaven.

“Jesus Christ knows the worst about you. Nonetheless, He is the One who loves you most.” A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for blessing me with a beautiful Savior that made it possible to be a child of Your Divine family. Thank you for being so patient and persistent in moulding me into the child You desire to be in Your Holy family. I exalt You in the name of He who perfect blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It was The.

 Which of the two did the will of the father?” The chief priests and elders replied, “The first one.” Jesus said to them, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you that the tax collectors and the prostitutes will get into the kingdom of God before you. “ Matthew 21:31 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The biggest sinners make the best saints. It is because we know how filthy we were before Christ came to wash us clean and forgive us of our sins that we worship and adore Him. We know what we were, we know what He had done to rescue us and we know what He is making us into that causes us to joyfully that we worship and adore Him.

Those who have their noses up in the air being haughty do not have this privilege because they think they are so good and so much better than others that they do not require a Savior. Boy are they in for a surprise on Judgment Day.

In Jesus’ case, we have the story of the holiest man who ever lived, and yet it was the prostitutes and thieves who adored Him, and the religious who hated His guts.” — Rebecca Manley Pippert

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with being sanctified unto my Beloved Father by Your Holy blood. I praise You in Your most delightful name. Amen.

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

He was Disgusting to Society

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a shepherd in Davids time he was disgusting to them. Shepherds were dirty, smelly and uncouth. But, Jehovah saw what was in his heart.

The same is true in us. You do not need to be a supermodel, wear all the latest designer clothes, attend a premier college or university or have a fat wallet to be used by Jehovah. It is your heart He is looking for.

When I was young I was poor, very shy and constantly sick. Those that knew me then would never have believed the manner in which Christ used me and the incredible transformation He has accomplished in me.

The same is true for everyone, including you.

It does not matter your appearance, your social graces, your intelligence or any other factor in your life. When your heart is receptive unto Christ He joyously embraces you into His Divine family.

The only requirement to be of service unto Christ our King is an obedient, receptive heart. Give Him that and watch the amazing things He does in your life and through your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not reject the worst sinners like drunks or drug addicts as unworthy to become Jehovahs children because it is the worst sinners who make the best saints. This is because they appreciate the Hell the Holy Spirit has delivered them from.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying a wicked sinner like me into Your Holy family.

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

Was Written to Teach Us.

flowers caressing blazing red cross

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans 15:4 New International Version

 

I believe it was Winston Churchill who said that those who do not learn form the past are dammed to repeat its mistakes again.

I have found this to be oh so true.

How many people go from one disastrous relationship to the next?

One encouraging thing I have found in the Bible is that the heroes were people just like us.

 

Many of them kept on stumbling though one disaster to the next. Finally they submit to Jehovah and they find their purpose and obey. That does not mean it is easy.

As well there are numerous accounts of the saints who endured a lot of hardship. It is from them we can and should learn of perseverance and faith. It has brought me a lot of comfort and encouragement through some extremely difficult times.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me with the honest scriptures that give me encouragement from those who have gone on before me that all hope is never lost for those who place their faith and obedience in Your wise hands. I humbly thank you in the name of He who forgave those who betrayed Him and gave them strength to obey Your holy calling in their lives Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Apart From Me

COMMUNION WITH CHRIST

I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior. Isaiah 43:11 New King James Version

Jesus Christ is the way and the only way.

Sorry to that religion that believes in praying to statues of dead saints and worships popes but they will not and cannot save you.

 

Sorry to any that follow the religion that says that good works will save you because it will not and cannot.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Yehew (Jesus is the God of His people) for the awesome sacrifice You paid to bless me with being Your humble servant by being my most loved savior. I exalt You in Your amazing name. Amen.                                                                                                          

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