Be sure of this

THE FIRES OF HELL

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is the best revenge you do not want to see.

Speaking from personal experience, yes I have desired revenge upon more than a few folks in my time.

Many times I got it on my own until the Lord convicted me that is a strong no, no for a Christian. We are to trust that Jehovah is a God of Justice and He will give vengeance in His way, in His time. Every time.

He has allowed me to witness His vengeance it has brought about the same three reactions.

One: a feeling of terror. Terror that that could be me one day because we all offend Jehovah because we are all sinners.

Repent or face the consequences. There is no plea bargaining or parole with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Two: a feeling of overwhelming joy that the blood of my Saviour along with my repentance (unrepentant sin is forgiven sin Joseph a son of Jehovah) exonerates me from receiving what the Law says (Jehovahs court, not mans) will be my punishment.

Three: Deep heart cutting agony at seeing the wicked suffer because of receiving Divine punishment.

You cannot love and rejoice at seeing Jehovahs justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

And, if you think it causes agony for us to witness it, imagine how it makes Jehovah feel. 

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hashopet (Judges 11:27) The LORD the Judge for the amazing blessing of forgiveness when I sincerely repent. Thank you that there is inescapable justice for the wicked when they refuse to repent. I extol You in Your fair name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

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

Bring My Sin To.

 So she said to Elijah, “What [problem] is there between you and me, O man of God? Have you come to me to bring my sin to mind and to put my son to death?” 1 Kings 17:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice that the woman had an unconfessed sin?

It was only when a man of Jehovah was there that she was willing to admit it or them. He did not accuse her of anything. I believe it was his presence that nagged at her and the death of her son was the catalyst that brought her to confession.

Many times just the presence of a saint will bring someone to want to talk about a sin they have nagging on their conscience.

We are not to condemn them nor to judge them. We are not to minimize it either.

Instead we are to listen to them and pray with them. We are to pray for the Holy Spirit to guide us to use the proper words to help them along with their confession and repentance.

This is the process that I use with great success. At first it was quite confusing why folks I barely knew wanted to talk with me about their problems.

Then the Holy Spirit taught me that it is because others see Christ in me that they feel the need for repentance and the security that there would be no condemnation nor gossiping on my behalf.

It is important to understand that when one confides in you, you are not to burn the telephone wires about it and gossip to anyone and everyone who is willing to listen. You are dealing with someones life and as well you are a representative of Christ.

This is an ideal opportunity to bring them to Him or bring those that have strayed back to Him or to bring assurance to one who has momentarily fallen that they are not facing an angry fierce damming God but one who is loving and forgiving when repentance is sought. Then if it is a habitual sin we need Jehovah’s guidance on where they can find the resources to help them.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me with words of comfort, encouragement, respect and gentle words of conviction when a receptive sinner approaches me with a repentant heart. Guide my actions to be appropriate to guide them to repentance and to the resources they need to conquer any addictions that are plaguing them. I humbly request this in the name of He who gently brought Peter to repentance for deserting Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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