The Good Fight

HARRASED

 Fight the good fight for the true faith. 1Timothy 6:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are in a daily battle with a sneaky, dirty filthy strong foe. His name is satan and his goal is the complete and total destruction of every Christian he can. He is smarter that us and stronger than us.

Our three weapons that defeat him are to be constantly by our side.

The first is our Bibles. We are to ask Jehovah to speak with us through it to bless us with battle verses to defeat our foe. After all, is that not how Jesus defeated satan in the wilderness. Are we not to emulate our King? So, if He defeated the devil with the Holy Bible should we not do so as well.

The second weapon is prayer. After all, how can satan attack us if we are talking with our Heavenly Father? When he attacks we go to Him and satan runs like a scared dog.

The third is obedience. Who knows better how to defeat satan than Jehovah? So who better to listen to to defeat satan than the eternal victorious One?

Every Christian is involved in a daily battle with no holds barred. Our victory comes from team work. The Holy Spirit and the Christian united is an unbeatable force to be reckoned with. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8) – The LORD Mighty In Battle for blessing me with the unbeatable weapons necessary to defeat my worst and most dangerous foe who is always lurking to seek the right moment to attack me. These weapons always guarantee me success. I applaud You in the name of my victorious King Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Warrior’s Prayer:

HAVE COURAGE

The Warrior’s Prayer:

Heavenly Father, this day Your child clothes himself with Your battle gear as I prepare for battle.
I claim victory this day and every day by putting on Jehovahs armor.

I put on the girdle of truth, which is the Bible, so that satan cannot con me with his lies.

Next comes the breastplate of righteousness which is the blood of Christ.that protects me heart from evil so that I will remain holy.

After that comes the shoes of peace that walks the road of love, compassion and respect for others.. This will be a beacon that guide others to my Beloved Jesus.

Then I pick up the shield of faith, which means trust. I completely trust Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit loves me, they care about me and are always there with me. No lie nor deceit of satan can ever pierce this shield.

The helmet of salvation is placed upon my head so that my thoughts words and deeds are concentrated upon Christ’s salvation so that I am His devoted humble servant. In my other hand is the Sword of the Spirit (the Holy Spirit) which is a double edged sword of power to resist satan as it slashes deep into the wicked heart of satan when he tempts me. Now I have the complete armor of Jehovah on and am prepared to live a victorious day this day and every day by the grace of Jehovah   

Jehovahs armor cannot ever be defeated. Every Christian must put it on every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle)  Psalms 24:8 for blessing me with the impenetrable armor to defeat satan with. Please bless me that You will remind me to put it on every morning. I exalt You in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross 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

A Daring and Beautiful Creative Reversal.

jESUS'S LOVE

He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Christ was hanging on the cross He was suffering ridicule by those who hated Him. Unimaginable agony in His body. Piercing heart ache watching His loved ones watch Him die and no doubt demons laughing at Him. Three days later He rose from grave and fulfilled Jehovahs prearranged glorious victory to bring all of His children into His family of every race, color and creed.

Talk about a turn of events huh?

“In a daring and beautiful creative reversal, God takes the worst we can do to Him and turns it into the very best he can do for us.”Malcolm Guite

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) that the worse possible manner of death known to the world was used to accomplish the most beautiful one in eternity. In Your amazing name I exalt You. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Be Careful To

GODS WAY

 

Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. Joshua 1:7 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Another way of putting this is to say: Be confident that Jesus has your back, victory is guaranteed. Then, do it.

That does not mean it will be easy but it does mean you will have victory.

Instead of obeying the instruction given by Moses change it to instructions given by the Holy Spirit. After all, He is the original Mr. Know it All because He knows it all. And, because He loves you and cares about you there is no other motive in His instructions than that which is for your own good.

“Because the indwelling Christ resides in us, God is literally establishing His rule in the world through us. As we say yes to God and live our lives in agreement with Him, He lives, rules, and reigns through us everywhere we go and in everything we do.” — David Edwards

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the awesome experience of always having Your presence with me all the way to the Heavenly Home You have prepared for me to enjoy communing with You with. Thank you for the wisdom on how to live a successful life. It is in You stunning name I praise You. Amen

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

Even When He is Silent.

 Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm.2 Chronicles 20:20 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my life when Jehovah was silent.

Yes in every one of the occurrences He was testing me. Testing my faith in Him.

He made me a promise, would I hold true faith in Him that the promise would come true even when it seemed as if everything was going the opposite way in which He promised?

Testing my patience. He promised that certain events would occur yet for what seemed like the longest time (a couple of years) there was no action and the opposite of what was promised was happening and I was suffering because of it.

In each instance I cried and cried out to Him yet He was silent.

I thought He was angry with me yet He remained silent. I stood firm in my Beloved even when it seemed He was either silent or indeed working against me. In the end in every situation He held true to His word.

So, if Jehovah is silent, take heart. He is not angry with you and will never desert you. Have faith child, have faith. Victory is your in Jehovahs time, in Jehovahs way.

  “I believe in the sun even if it isn’t shining. I believe in love even when I am alone. I believe in God even when He is silent.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with teaching that even though there are times when You are silent, You have not deserted me and are working a wondrous victory for me and are maturing this child of Yours. I exalt You in the name of He who worked amazing deeds even when others though He was silent Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

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
