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.

True religion is . . .

 WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world. James 1:27 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Religion is described as a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

A principle of the heart; in my love for Jehovah and my fellow man

An element of the character of Christ residing with in me;

The habit of thinking, feeling, and acting according to the statutes of Jehovah in all my social relations;

The basis of every virtue which emulates the righteousness of Christs character ;

The main prop of every preforming with all of my mind, body and spirit to excel in service unto our Heavenly King ;

The fear – not just the punishment for the wicked in His terrible justice but to have constant respect and awe of Him but of the Lord, by which men depart from evil;

Faith which means trust working by love to accomplish with total zest all the tasks my Beloved Heavenly Father assigns for me to do;

Such a belief in the gospel of Christ, as leads to a conformity to His example in every aspect of my daily life.

True religion, though founded on a belief of doctrines, and nourished by the exercises of devotion—diffuses its influence over the entire character of man to make him Holy as Christ is holy.

True religion is the belief in Jesus Christ, the love of Jesus Christ, the worship of Jesus Christ, and the imitation of Jesus Christ.

True religion is sound morality, animated and sanctified by the Holy Spirit of true devotion to Christ in all of my deeds and words.

True religion prescribes, not only homage to God, but allows Him dominion into every part of my daily life..

It is all or nothing with Jesus. Either you belong totally to Him or you belong to satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emet (God of truth) continuously expand Thy Divine truth in my spirit and mind of the proper manner in which to daily, moment by moment focus on devoting myself to Your Supreme religion. I meekly request this in the name of He whose every aspect of His earthly journey focused on showing us the proper manner in which to have Your religion supreme in our lives Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Doctrines of Scripture Are.

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]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The doctrines of Scripture are at once . . .the source of consolation, and the means of sanctification. It is in our worse agony that we experience the greatest consolation from our Heavenly Beloved. Sometimes He speaks to us in His loving word (the Bible) and sometimes He comes to us in spirit and comforts us personally. Either way we experience Divine comfort and encouragement.

To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer according to the dictionary. We as Jehovahs children are set apart from the world in our thinking, living and actions. We are to be beautiful lights that glow from our Heavenly relationship with our Divine Designer, Jehovah, so that we are beacons guiding those stumbling in the dark world into the Celestial Light, Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture . . .come into the mind as knowledge, produce peace and love in the heart, spread the beauties of holiness over the character and conduct. These Holy doctrines are taught to us individually by the supreme teacher, The Holy Spirit. They are not taught as a system of religion but rather are taught as a manner in which the child of Jehovah become holy.

One of the fruitations of growing in knowledge and application of scripture in Heavenly peace and love as we emulate our best friend Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture are light; and like the rays of the sun, they sustain life at the root of the vine, and produce fruit on its branches.

Just as sunlight bring live giving vitality unto the vine so too does scripture enlarge spiritual life in the child of Jehovah. This life produces abundant harvests in the society it dwells in.

This heavenly light of truth gives . . . spiritual vitality to the soul, and holy conduct to the life. The truth will truly set us free from the lies in the world around us and fill us with vitality to share this light with others. This is first accomplished in the conduct of the saint.

The doctrines of Scripture are facts, which involve corresponding emotions and principles of action, and must, from their very nature, if believed, be operative upon the heart and the life.

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your abundant Divine knowledge in the proper manner in which to conduct myself according to Your wise principals.

Please bless me with the strength to consistently incorporate them into my daily life.

I gratefully thank You and humbly beseech You in the name of the wisest most obedient man to ever walk the earth 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

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.

Being Transformed Into

 

And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our Savior and King, He sends the Holy Spirit to transform us from being a dirty filthy rag into a new beautiful Divine creation.

This does not mean that when we accept Christ there will be a hallelujah moment and then we can continue on as we were before.

It does mean a lifetime commitment unto His will in our lives. It means allowing Him to burn off the dross (bad habits and attitudes which hinder our relationship with Him and our maturity in our Christian walk).

Speaking from experience it is not pleasant but you will praise Him for it every day after its completion. It does not mean we are to sit on our butts and expect the Holy Spirit to do all the work. It does mean a lifetime commitment to making the effort ourselves to become Holy children of God. Many times we will be expected to make the effort by ourselves as we mature because that is a process of maturity as well.

“God invites us to come as we are, not to stay as we are.”Tim Keller

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit M’Kaddess (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with teaching me and helping me to grow into a sanctified child of my Beloved and to lead a life pleasing unto Him. I exalt Thee in the name of He who showed us all how to lead a sanctified life pleasing unto our loving Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. Amen

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

May Not Profit By.

                                     

 And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance. Romans 5:3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

When we suffer in the body our spirits grow. It is only by suffering that growth takes place. It is not pleasant while it is occurring but when we surrender our wills to Jehovah He will use these experiences to mold us into the children He desires us to be.

In reflecting back upon them we will joyously sing praises unto Him.

And, of course, the most precious profit of it all it that it will draw us into a closer loving relationship with our Beloved Father in Heaven because of them which could be accomplished in no other manner. I know it certainly has been true in every step of progress in my life.

“There is nothing the body suffers the soul may not profit by.” — George Meredith

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying me through many trials and tribulations. These were needed to burn off the dross and to make me pliable in the hands of the Divine molder of this clay vessel. I exalt Thee in the name of the greatest potter of all Jesus Christ. 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
