Using these Effective Christian Weapons

 Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life. Proverbs 21:21 New Living Translation

There was a comical saying in the seventies that said the devil made me do it, in reference to why we do bad things.

That is a lie.

The devil tempts us but it is in our own free will that knowingly, willingly commit the sin.

When temptation comes our way we should use the Christian weapons Jehovah supplies us with for victory.

Number one on the list is common sense. The number one rule is that if you are single, or married never be alone with anyone of the opposite sex (unless they are your husband or wife). You can be alone in the library or in a restaurant but never in a place where there is no one else there.

Number two is if Jesus would not be there neither should you be. So if your buddies are doing drugs or going to the bar to pick up babes (or hunks if they are women) do you think Jesus would join them for that activity?

Number three is to memorize victory verses so when the devil temps you like he did Jesus in the wilderness we, like Jesus use Bible verses to defeat our opponent. And yes that is very effective from personal experience.

Number four is to have a close relationship with Jehovah so that when the temptation is too strong for you, your first defence will be to call upon our mighty Heavenly Daddy who will come to our rescue. Again speaking from personal experience this is very effective. Using these effective Christian weapons will bring life to us that is close to our Heavenly Father and oh what a marvellous life that is.

“Only he who flings himself upward when the pull comes to drag him down, can hope to break the force of temptation. Temptation may be an invitation to hell, but much more is it an opportunity to reach heaven. At the moment of temptation, sin and righteousness are both very near the Christian; but, of the two, the latter is the nearer.” — Charles H. Brent

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chereb (Lord the is my Sword) for blessing me with the ultimate weapon to defeat satan and his minions with that is always victorious. I exalt You in the name of the unbeatable warrior King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Those Who Represent The.

HEAVENLY STRENGTH

 Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you. Luke 10:19,20   Holy Bible Amplified Version               

I do not believe Christ is referring to the creature but to those who represent the creatures.

So for example, the serpent represents satan while the scorpions represent those whose tongues and hands represent wicked ones out to do you harm.

The harm mentioned is not referring to physical harm but rather spiritual harm. They are out to poison your relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

The wicked ones are out to kill your love for them.

The authority is given by Christ in His name and the power comes through the Holy Spirit.

Because Jesus is the Supreme Power satan and his minions do not have the power to harm us (they can tempt us but never physically, mentally, nor spiritually harm us).

They are constantly around us which is why it is so important to stay close to Christ.

If we stray away from Jesus we are easy pickings for satan and his henchmen. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing this dedicated servant of Your with the necessary tools to defend myself successfully against the serpents and scorpions that come my way through the day. I glorify You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

This is Especially Relevant as Our Time Of.

faith in the future

 Behold, God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, For the Lord God is my strength and song; Yes, He has become my salvation.” Isaiah 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is especially relevant as our time of death comes nigh. The devil will come especially strong as the time to depart closes nigh. He will softly whisper subtle doubts in our minds if what we have lived for, sacrificed for and suffered for is real or is it really just a fairy tale.

At this time the Holy Spirit will come to our aid. He shall reminisce with us all the times Jehovah has preformed amazing feats both in our lives and through our lives. He shall remind us of the danger Jehovah walked us through. The times of trial and temptation when His strength guided us through this blazing fire. He shall remind us of Jehovahs gentle love that healed us of the deep slashes inflicted upon our hearts. He shall remind us of the amazing times of communion with Jehovah when every molecule in our bodies screamed with explosive love and joy. That this time that experience will last an eternity.

At this time we shall be filled with complete confidence in Jehovah and His promises unto us.

With our dying lips we shall thank Jehovah for the privilege of serving Him while in this fleshly body and hold out our weak trembling arms to embraced by our loving Heavenly Father as He joyfully welcomes us to the Heavenly home He has prepared for you, His child He loves so dearly.

Just as Jehovah guides our walk here on earth, so too shall He guide us to our Heavenly home and into His loving arms. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing Your darling children with reassurance that at the moment the breath of life in our fleshly bodies is extinguished you shall assign an angel to be instantaneously in the eternal presence of the the one who loves us as His most precious treasure, You. I exalt You in the name of my best friend with whom I yearn to spend an eternity walking with and talking with Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

The Longer You Delay.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts and passions. Romans 6:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a gardener I know full well that when a tree see becomes a twig you pull it out immediately. Otherwise, with some tree’s it is almost impossible to remove.

So too it is with sin.

The longer you dwell in the sewer of sin, the more it seeps into the pours of your body and spirit. This is a slow physical and spiritual death.

Now some say I will sin when I am young and sow me wild seeds. Then, I will repent when I get older. They are living a fools dream. I have witnessed a small seed not only germinate in a soul but also this leads to others sins and more and more sins until it completely consumes the man or woman. Just listen to a drug addict and most will share with you how it started out small and was fun. Then it became a cruel slave master. The slave master brought with him other slave masters who were just as unmerciful (more addictions). It becomes a living Hell. It amazes me that most drug addicts prefer this Hell rather than become clean (which is why all the free drug clinics are useless unless the addicted want help).

Almost all of my habitual sins began small and over time became deep rooted in my per sona. It took some serious and painful burning off of the dross by the Holy Spirit to cleanse me of them. We need to be constantly attentive to the Holy Spirits guidance in our lives to avoid these destructive temptations every day.

There are still a few that Jehovah allows to keep me humble and keep me reliant upon Him instead of myself.

“The longer you delay, the more your sin gets strength and rooting. If you cannot bend a twig, how will you be able to bend it when it is a tree?” — Richard Baxter

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for sending the Holy Spirit to help deliver me from poisonous sins which will destroy the Holy Spirit with in me if they are permitted to take root. I praise You in the name of He who yanked out the worlds sins with His blood 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

On My Own.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Some times when we are faced with temptation Jehovah knows we have the power with in our selves to resist it.

Today was just such a day.

It has been two week since permanently butting out.

Today there was a strong temptation to go out and purchase a pack of cigarettes.

I called out to the Lord to deliver me but His reply was that He knew I had the power to resist so just do it.

It felt like my head was going to explode but I firmly determined that I refuse to go back. I feel great since butting out and refuse to return to it just to start the battle all over again.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth (The Lord is Strong) for blessing me with Your encouragement that some of Your unlimited strength resides with in me. This was used this day to good affect.

I praise You in the name of He who slam dunks satan to the ground every time Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with Jehovahs unlimited power today

He Who Has a Head of Wax

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.

The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.

Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).

Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me).  Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).

Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).

Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Those who have a head of wax must not walk out in the sun (know your weaknesses) Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.

Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.

Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.

I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What kind of a Runner are You?

                                              

Run away from youthful lusts—pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those [believers] who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What kind of a runner are you?

Do you run as fast to your Bible as you do to porno sites on line?

Would you drink from a septic tank?

Why not?

Well just as the feces in the septic tank will make your body sick, so too will porno sites pollute your mind (and before you women go pointing fingers at us men like we are pigs, there is a large majority of women that watch that filth as well).

When we are youths we are inexperienced and easy prey for the alluring lies of satan.

That is why we need mature Christians to guide us away from the destruction fantasies (once you fall for satan you will quickly find out it is no fun but many times pure living Hell, just ask any junkie).

Now notice I said mature and not older. Someone can be older in years but very immature in their walk with Christ. Their advice is useless and indeed many times very disastrous.

It is the duty of us older Christians to warn those who are young in their walk with Christ when they are fallowing the wrong path. Be patient with them as Christ is patient with you. Be firm with them as Christ is firm with you. Be respectful with them just as Christ is with you (that includes allowing them to fall into the temptation if that is their choice but to welcome them back if they repent).

Satans temptations always lead to destruction. That is why we need mature Christians to guide us away from them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for Your Divine intercession when satan temps me with destructive lusts. Thank you for Your providence in bringing mature Christians to counsel me when I foolishly begin to stray. I praise You in the name of He who resisted satans temptations in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
