First He must Break You.

WE ARE PURIFIED

My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. Psalm 51:17 New International Version

Before you can be used by Jehovah you must first be broken.

There is something or someone in everyone’s lives that they put above Christ. For some it is family, for some it is their job, for some it is their ego. Whatever it is, it must be crushed by Christ.

For me it was someone and a situation was brought about where that bond was painfully broken.

After the healing it was then that Christ could use me.

The amazing thing is that I did not even realize I was a slave to my devotion.

Now I am free from that enslavement and there is a very deep, rewarding, loving relationship between my Beloved and me that I pray I never allow anyone or anything to destroy.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) crush whatever comes between You and me so that I may have the immense honor of serving my beautiful Father. I humble request this in the name of He who served You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

In Their Blind Conceit

Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all. In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are.” Psalm 36:1-2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Conceit is described in the dictionary as: an often unjustified feeling of being pleased with oneself or with one’s situation or achievements

I have met so many that are so full of themselves that it is painful to be around them for more that two minutes. They think the whole world revolves around them. They cannot say a sentence without glorifying themselves. They are the epitome of arrogance.

Of course they only live for themselves.

They lie, steal, cheat and do anything to glorify themselves and bring luxury to themselves.

This is their downfall because they are very lonely (who wants to be around a braggart?).

They are susceptible to alcohol and drug abuse. Because they drool at being with the in crowd they fall for the lies that drug and alcohol abuse is fun. Using drugs and alcohol brings short term pleasure that leads to a life time of hell. Yeah it is fun to start with but becomes addictive and you become its slave. It is a cruel master.

I have done volunteer work with addicts and the same story is repeated with every one of them. It started out as fun with their buddies but soon became addictive. In the end, it destroyed their lives. I have met many that were successful by the worlds standards (doctors, lawyers and such) that had their lives destroyed by alcohol and drugs and were homeless.

We are all one step from the gutter, that is why we need Christ to guide our steps away from it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Sin has a diminishing factor to it. It always gives it’s best in the beginning. It never gets better after that … it only gets worse.” — Mark Aulson

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) save me from the deceptive snares of addictions that destroy the body, mind and spirit. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the strongest defense against these whiles Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

With Him is Full Redemption.

trust in God

Put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. Psalm 130:7 New International Version

Redemption: the act of saving people from sin and evil : the fact of being saved from sin or evil Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Do you foolishly waste your money buying lottery tickets hoping to win. Those who do win do not have their lives changed for the better. Their problems are still there and most of the time their problems get worse with people trying to con them out of their money.

Do you hope getting married will change your life for the better? Doing that only leads to more problems and most times divorce.

Do you hope if you get that promotion or a better job it will end your money problems? If you cannot handle what you have now, what makes you believe you can handle more money (now in our sick society where the rich do indeed unjustly get richer while the rest of us suffer by getting poorer we can use more money)?

Do you hope getting that house will make your life better? Then you become a house slave making the mortgage payments, making repairs, cannot go on vacations because you cannot leave the house unattended.

 

Now when you put your hope in Jehovah that is the surest thing you can do with your life. When you completely surrender whatever slave to sin you are chained to, to Jehovah He will smash those chains and you will be eternally grateful to Him.

I know,

He smashed the chains of an addiction that were making my life a living hell while dragging me into the eternal one.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for rescuing me from the chains that were making my life a living Hell while dragging me down into a permanent one. I praise You the name of He who rescued that man from legions Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Mighty Chain Smasher.

Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:34-36 New King James Version

Satan always deceives you into thinking sin is fun. Then you become addicted to it and it becomes a living hell leading you into a permanent hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When I was a boy the neighbours and certain family member used to think it was fun to get me drunk. As I grew I became addicted to alcohol.

At one point I decided to quit all to no avail. I tried therapy, hypnosis, herbal medicine, proper diet. I tried it all.

Finally one night with my head hanging over a bucket puking my eyeballs out in a drunken stupor I called out to Jesus:” My Lord, save me from this living Hell, it is too strong for me to conquer on my own. I need you to rescue me.” At that moment I became sober and have no touched a drop since.

Many times I hear recovered alcoholics say they did it on their own but am reminded of what a drunk once told me:” Be careful; we are all one step from the gutter.” I hear how they fall off the wagon and their lives are totally destroyed.

We all have our addictions which we cannot conquer on our own. I believe it is a gift from Jehovah to make us realize how much we need Him. It is only when we surrender to Him that He truly sets us free and smashes the chains of addiction that are dragging us into a living Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for smashing the chains that were dragging me into Hell and blessing me with an amazing love relationship with You that leads to Heaven. I praise You in the name of He who has freed so many captive Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Where Your Heart Goes

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23New International Version

If you have unresolved anger in your heart it will affect not just your physical well being but will affect your relationships in your family, with your friends and classmates and co-workers.

If you are proud you become arrogant and that affects your interpersonal relationships.

If you are in love with yourself you will end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

If you are materialistic it will make you very sad and a slave to consumerism and put you into debt of which you will never free yourself from.

Most important of all if you suffer from any of these afflictions it will affect your most treasured relationship, that of Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Where your heart goes, your feet follow Joseph- Anthony: Green

The best way to prevent yourself from falling into one these destructive trait is to daily nurture yourself in your relationship with them. We do this by reading their Word to us, by obeying it and by daily prayer.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit my guidance councilor guide me away from destructive forces and guide me in walking with Your Heavenly will. In the name of He who guided His heart and lead by example Jesus Christ. Amen.

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