Outside of Christ.

                                         

Be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. Ephesians 6:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are outside of Christ we are easy pickings for the devil and his minions. Their greatest joy is bringing nothing but sorrow, pain, anger and hatred. He is great at nurturing guilt complexes, jealousy, envy, backbiting, selfishness and a whole litany of other mental problems which slowly destroys all joy from our lives.

As well we are susceptible to being enslaved by society. We fall for the enslavement of trying to keep up with the Jones and stupidly going so deep into debt it will never be paid off. And, if any little catastrophe occurs like a raise in interest rates, a recession ( where you lose your job) the result is that all of your hard work is for naught because you can no longer afford to pay for all your toys and house and lose everything. You are bitter and deeply depressed. We fall for the con men and women that deceive us into foolishly believing that sex out of marriage is fun, drugs are fun, and alcohol abuse is fun ( just look at the rubbish on TV, in the movies and listen to the complete garbage that passes off as music to confirm this). This destroys our minds bodies and spirit over time and leaves us as an empty shell of a being in a total miserable state.

On the flip side when we are in Christ, He blesses us with meaning in life, to enjoy and nurture a loving relationship with Him and a Divine purpose in life, to be obedient servants of our Heavenly King. We never ask why we are here nor what is the meaning of life because our Heavenly King has revealed it to us. When we have this, we have complete strength and wisdom by the Holy Spirit to expose and resist the wicked demons and the foolishness of worldliness. We are blessed with complete fullness of life, both now and eternally.

Outside of Christ, I am weak; in Christ, I am strong.” Watchmen Nee

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Divine wisdom and strength to know the devils wiles and blessing with with the strength and wisdom in the proper manner in which to defeat the. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to defeat the devil in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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

You had Better Listen.

 

I have also spoken to [you through] the prophets, And I gave [them] many visions [to make My will known], And through the prophets I gave parables [to appeal to your sense of right and wrong]. Hosea 12:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah speaks to us even today through visions, dreams, teachers, by being in nature and seeing His glory, by reading His Holy Book (the Bible) and of course by a soft whisper. He is trying to guide your life, He is trying to correct you when you are going astray and doing wicked things.

Beware. His patience only lasts for so long.

“So when you spread out your hands [in prayer, pleading for My help], I will hide My eyes from you which is the same as saying He will turn His back on you because you turned your back on Him). Isaiah 1:15 Holy Bible Amplified Version

No.

He will not do bad things unto you, that is not possible. Because He is good, how can He do anything wicked?

Rather because you refuse to listen to Him ,He will turn His back on you and refuse to listen to you and you will be easy pickings for the devil and his minions as well as your own faulty thinking and surrendering to fleshly desires.

The consequences of this is disastrous. The disaster will not happen in day or a week ( although it may). Most times it is like a small pebble that starts an avalanche. The pebble is small but as it continues down hill it picks up speed and energy. It becomes unstoppable and destructive. So too it is in the lives of the wicked. It starts out small and as time goes on it continues to grow in strength and speed until a disastrous end for the evil ends in Hell.

I have seen it with my own eyes with family and associates over the years.

Jehovah is speaking, are you listening? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your Divine words of love, comfort, strength and wisdom. May I always be attentive, understand what You say and be obedient unto them. I know You share Your Divine wisdom in every aspect of my life for my own good. You are such a truly wonderful Councillor. I exalt You in the name of the most Wonderful Councillor Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They are Calling Jehovah Wicked.

Differing weights [one for buying and another for selling] and differing measures, Both of them are detestable and offensive to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable and offensive [to the Lord]. How much more [unacceptable and insulting can it be] when he brings it with evil intention? Proverbs 21:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Detestable means arousing or meriting intense dislike in the dictionary.

So many times I hear preachers and others say that the thing we hate the most is the thing in which we ourselves do as well.

In the Christian perspective they are dead wrong.

As you can see from these verses Jehovah hates these things so if , by their reasoning, Jehovah hates these things that must mean He practices these things. That means He is not Holy and prefect.

The more in love you are with another the more your disposition becomes like them and you desire to emulate them. Watch a child try to emulate their father or mother for proof.

It only stands to reason then that what Jehovah hates we hate.

I hate liars, the proud, the thieves, the instigators and mean spirited.

That does not mean I want to kill them, indeed it brings great sorrow to see their lifestyle because it only brings them depression, loneliness, sorrow and pain but that does not mean I excuse it nor tolerate it. When I try to teach them about Christ and they turn their back on Him (it is Christ they are rejecting not you) that is an insult and I turn my back on them. It is a sad thing to do but it is necessary because they are a waste of time and energy.

I pray Jehovah leads me to receptive ones and move on.

These six things the Lord hates; Indeed, seven are repulsive to Him: A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that creates wicked plans, Feet that run swiftly to evil, A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths], And one who spreads discord (rumours) among brothers. Proverbs 6:16-19The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is also a misconception that Jehovah hates the sin but loves the sinner.

That is a flat out lie.

He hates the wicked that refuse to follow His guidance and openly rebel against Him with a holy hate.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me to hate what You hate in a holy manner so as to not allow what is wicked to be tolerated nor welcome in my life. I sincerely request this in the name of the Holy of Holies whom shall judge and reward the wicked according to their evil deeds Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He was Arrogant.

For when Jezebel destroyed the prophets of the Lord, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by fifties in a cave, and provided them with bread and water. 1 Kings 18:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Then Elijah said to the people, “I alone remain a prophet of the Lord, while Baal’s prophets are 450 men. 1 Kings 18:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Even though Elijah was informed that a thousand prophets had been rescued from the bloody wicked hand of Jezebel here he was standing in front of the whole nation telling a blatant lie that he was the only prophet of Israel.

He was arrogant.

He paid the price by being made humble and afraid of a wicked queen.

So too it is with us. When we Christians become arrogant in our Christian walk ( and we all do from time to time) Jehovah will arrange something to happen to knock us off of our high horses. 

The higher the horse the harder the fall. Unknown

That does not mean He is angry with us but rather that He is disciplining us like any good father or mother would a child they love.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Ezer (The LORD our Helper) bless me that You always keep my heart humble so as to be a shining light in a dark world. I humbly request this in the name of the most humble of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Was Disgusted with Him.

 Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel].2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The king of Israel knew Jehovah’s laws and ordinances yet refused to obey them. He openly worshiped that which disgusted Jehovah. When he came to inquire of a man he knew was a prophet of Jehovah the prophet was disgusted with him and refused to even knowledge him.

So too it is to be with us who are of Christ’s family when we meet a wolf in sheep’s clothing that openly defies Christ’s commands and blatantly follows the wicked ones way of life. Even Jesus says that we are to abstain all contact with them.

This is because if we have contact with them they may influence us and draw us away from Christ.

The closer we get to Christ the more we become like Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Another thing is that because we are close with Christ what disgusts Him disgusts us. So, just as these wolves in sheeps clothing disgust Christ so too do they disgust us.

Now if they repent they are to we welcomed back into the brotherhood and sisterhood of saints.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me to walk away from those who reject You and to be disgusted with their behaviour just as You are and to not even acknowledge them less they steer me away from You. I praise You in the name of He who was disgusted with the scribes and pharisee’s for their hypocrisy Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I would Not Look at You.

 Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel]. 2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes it is because of the righteous that the wicked are not punished (at that moment) but they will be punished in Jehovah’s way and in Him time.

Notice that it is because the king of Judah was an obedient servant of Jehovah that the Holy man spoke.

Many times the wicked will receive guidance from the righteous because of their association with a righteous man or woman. They come for advice because of what they want to hear not what they need to hear. When what they need to hear is told to them they hate the messenger and will stubbornly refuse the Godly advice given unto them. The whole meeting is a waste of their time and the man or woman of Gods time. Because they refuse to listen to the Godly advice they meet their doom.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with softly speaking to my heart not to waste my times with the wicked ones who blatantly reject you and walk in the path of wickedness. It saves me so much frustration and sorrow. I extol Thee in the name of He who walks away from those who refuse to open the door of their hearts when He comes a knocking Jesus Christ. Amen.

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