The Source of My Confidence.

                                                  

 For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust and the source of my confidence from my youth. Psalm 71:5 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Society is a prison of keeping up phony appearances. To fit in with the “in crowd” you have to act in a way that conforms to what they think is right or wrong. They decide what to wear, what music to watch, what movies to watch and what food to eat.

I do not care what others think of me, I care what Christ knows of me and is making of me. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who is “they’ you ask?

It is big business disguised as someone wise. I remember a time when these two guys would rate movies and many folks would decide which movies to watch based on their assessment. The strange thing is though, the movies they thought were super great must see movies were boring and duds to me. The movies they panned were the great movies to me. Strange how they were paid by the big movie companies.

I see movie stars and so called musicians commenting on world events like they are so wise yet they are idiots who know nothing. Many folks are just as big of idiots because they take their word for it rather than do research on it. Those of us who do do the research and call them out are called racists, bigots, hemophiliacs, to name just a few.

There are so many that wait in freezing weather and spend exorbitant amounts of money to get the latest mobile phone from a certain company just to feed their ego.

Those of us who are wise have confidence in who we are in Christ. When The Holy Spirit directs our steps it is because the Trinity loves us and desires only what is best for us not to empty our wallets or bend to worshiping them as idols. We have confidence in our Teacher and Guidance Councilor. We have confidence in who we are because we know Jehovah made us this way (that is not to say we are perfect or that we do not need the burning off of the dross- bad habits). We have confidence in what He is molding us into.

“The greatest prison people live in is the fear of what other people think.” David Icke Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for speaking to me in a gentle assurance that it does not matter what others think of me but what is important is what Your know of me and about me and what I am capable of becoming when I dedicate my life unto You. I exalt Thee in the name who He who never listened to anyone but You in whim He was Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Everyone May Learn From

 “Nevertheless the righteous will hold to his ways, And he who has clean hands will grow stronger and stronger. Job 17:9 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

We all put our mouths in action before our brains from time to time. We say things impulsively that are deeply regretted later.

I have certainly done it numerous times.

That is why we need the Holy Spirit to guard our mouths and indeed clamp them shut many times to keep us out of trouble. He has done that for me numerous times to my deep gratitude.

We all play the victim when trials and tribulations occur and take it out on God: “If you love me why are you allowing this to happen to me”

I have cried that too many times to count. In retrospect however I see that the greatest lessons in life are learned from trials and tribulations. They help us grow the most and helps us to endure then with confidence and even expectation on what Jehovah is doing through these events.

And, you can bet He is doing it for a reason.

Those speak foolishly who ascribe their anger or their impatience to such as offend them or to tribulation. Tribulation does not make people impatient, but proves that they are impatient. So everyone may learn from tribulation how his heart is constituted.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God my teacher) for teaching me through my numerous tribulations and moulding me from them into the beautiful child You desire me to be. I praise You in the name of Your most beautiful Son Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Servant’s Heart.

I am Your servant; give me understanding [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] Psalm 119:125 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The wise servant knows what is expected of him or her by the King.

The only way to achieve this is by discernment and the only way to attain that is listening to the Kings instructions. Just as an earthly king will have various and different duties for the servant each day so too does our Heavenly King. That is why we must ask Him every day to provide us with the proper instructions throughout the day.

There is a manner of conduct that is required of the Kings servant and the only manner in which the servant can know this and incorporate it into his daily life is with instruction and daily practice from the King.

It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the bond servant like his master. Matthew 10:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We always emulate that which we admire.

So many imitate their favourite musician by talking like they do, dressing like they do and behaving like they do (God help us with the role models in the music, TV and movie industry today).

So too must we Christians emulate our Heavenly Master as His bond servants.

Bond servants are those who serve another of their own free will. That is the only way to become a servant of Christ is by our own free will. He is too gracious to force anything on us.

The more we serve and emulate Him in our daily life the more it will be ingrained into our subconscious to serve Him and behave like Him in an appropriate manner which is pleasing unto Him without even thinking about it.

“The true character of ministry is a servant’s heart.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the awesome privilege of being Your humble obedient servant. I extol Thee in the name of the King of Kings Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Why Don’t They

For this is the will of God, that you be sanctified [separated and set apart from sin]: that you abstain and back away from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honour [being available for God’s purpose and separated from things profane], not [to be used] in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God and are ignorant of His will. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Most popular TV shows and movies glorify sex out as something lustful and fun. Why don’t they show those same people going to the doctor to get treated for syphilis, gonorrhea and aids?

Why don’t they show an unborn baby being ripped from its mothers womb and being thrown into an incinerator like a piece of garbage?

Why don’t they show most children born out of wed lock join gangs and lead destructive lives?

Why don’t they show the affected one with sexual disease explain to family and friends they have a life destroying disease because of their poor choices?

Why don’t they show people laying in bed afterwards wondering how it feel that someone just used your body to satisfy their lust and how they feel empty, sad and used?

Why don’t they show young people who lose out on going to school, getting a good education and job being cast into the abyss of welfare, booze, drugs and a meaningless life?

Could it be because sex sells while responsible, respectful, loving relationships do not?

Could it be because most people do not want to think of the life altering consequences of their foolishness?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) forgive the arrogant who blatantly give You the finger by abusing their bodies and then blaming You when it comes time to pay the penalty. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest Teacher who was ignored Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Lose but I Win

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord Isaiah 1:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every time I have gotten into debate with Jehovah I lose but I win.

I debate with Him my wants, many times even using Bible scripture to back up my point of view. He gently but persistently uses different Bible scriptures to see things in a completely different way.

I lose my fleshly desires but win in obediently surrendering unto His will which is the best for me.

As well I am blessed with new insight into my Beloved and a new way of looking at things.

The reward for this is bringing me into a deeper loving relationship with my Heavenly Beloved.

As well He shows me the rewards for being obedient both spiritually and materially that far surpass my fleshly desires. To the world this is foolishness, stupid and down right insane. To those of us who walk close with Christ it makes perfect sense.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with being so patient with me when I am stubborn and slow to grasp what You are trying to teach me. Thank You that when I submit unto Your wise guidance it is always for my best. I praise You in the name of the wisest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Out of His Mouth Cometh.

BOUQUET OF FLOWERS GROWING ON TREE ON A BRIGHT SUNNY DAY

For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6King James Version

You will not get it in school, you will not get it in self help books.

Being a teacher for ten years one thing I have noticed is that students learn but do not understand what they are learning. Take math for example. They may learn their multiplication but they do not understand how it is done because they use computers instead of thinking the problem out.

Wisdom comes from experience and putting experience into action in ones life. Today people rely upon TV shows and physiatrists to solve their problems. They will never find the true answer that way, although   physiatrists may help they do not come to the root of the problem which is that we need Jehovah.

Another thing I strongly disagree with is the poison they are teaching that if you just put your mind to it and try hard you will succeed. No matter how hard I try to flap my arms and believe, I will never fly like an eagle. No matter how hard I try I can not build a house.

Why?

Because Jehovah has not made me for that.

The knowledge and understanding that Jehovah blesses us with is spiritual not material.

Materialism  is like a balloon full of hot air, not worth anything compared to a ruby which has great values. Material passes away which spiritual lasts for eternity.

Which riches are you storing?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kalel (Voice of God) for  blessing me with Your divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding which leads to graduation in Heaven. I thank you in the name of the greatest Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What They Need

Whoever rebukes a person will in the end gain favor rather than one who has a flattering tongue. Proverbs 28:23 New International Version

blue sky behink pink blossoms

In today’s world of the politically correct where if it feels good do it, to rebuke someone is to be considered to be interfering.

I remember when as a child it was quite common for a stranger to rebuke a naughty child when they were misbehaving in public.

Try that now and see what happens.

In s world it is not your fault, it is societies fault, it is your families s fault and the guilty ones go unpunished.
If we had more men and women out there that could mentor properly without the politically correct interfering maybe that would solve a lot of our problems.

When I was a teacher I would gracefully, meekfully (meek means keeping your tempter under control) rebuke naughty or lazy children. Yes, when necessary, they were punished. Many other teachers thought I was harsh. But, at the end of the year, so many of those same students would come up to me and thank me and apologize for their misbehavior.

Whereasthose with flattering tongues tell you it is not your fault or that no, you cannot fail. You did a great job and get a prize even though you did not putany effort in it. These flattering teachers were treated with contempt and distain.
And you wonder why society is in such a mess?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hosanna (God our maker) bless me with the ability to mold those You have placed in my sphere of influence into Godly righteous children of Your precious family. I humbly request this in the name of the greatest teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Why They are Wrong.

For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law; to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without law; to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men that I might by all means save some. Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you. 1 Corinthians 9: 19-23 New International Version

wild pink flowers beside gentle river

Living in China for ten years and in Mexico for three winters I have seen too many Christians with a good heart but bad mind. I have seen them come on short term missions for maybe a month and then go home. That is not long enough.

The proper motto is go long term or stay home.

When I was a teacher in China it would take two months just to get some students interested in listening about Jesus and then another four months to get them to understand the basics and give them the resources (like websites like Our Daily Bread and sermon audio) to grow in Christ.

Too many missionaries go abroad and do not understand the language, culture or ” Go into a Buddhist temple and see how many Gods there is there

As well, if you go with a government interpreter they can tell the people anything and not the message. So you think the people are accepting Jesus when the interpreter is asking them if they want free food.

Another thing is many times they are not interested in learning about Jesus as much as they are interested in learning English for free (I have see too much of that). So you think they have given their lives to Jesus and they are laughing at you because they got free English lessons.
When you t that cause the other families to be jealous? If you do it for one, do it for everyone And another important thing is to live amongst the people.

Yes that may include no internet or mobile or air-conditioning, sleeping on the floor, listening to loud people and animals and eating what you consider disgusting food.

If you are not prepared to go long time on a mission stay home, if you are not prepared to suffer for Christ, stay home.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) guide Your child to where You want me to be to do the things You want me to do with the tools You abundantly supply in the time You so wisely determine. I humbly request this in the name of Your obedient son that always worked in Your will Jesus Christ. Amen.

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