Your Gut is Wrong.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12

 

In todays culture so many false prophets are wrongly telling people to follow their gut instincts.

 

Your gut is wrong.

One time the Lord was telling me to go south for a job.

My gut told me to go north so I went north. I could not beg borrow or steal a job in the north.

As soon as I got off the bus in the south I received the best contract I had in ten years.

That was a valuable lesson learned many years ago that I pray I never forget. Since learning that lesson many disasters have been avoided. 

Payer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for guiding so brilliantly through my life. I apologize for the times I have been an obstinate child and foolishly refused to follow Your divine guidance. I give thanks for this amazing blessing and apologize in the name of the most awesome Sheppard there could ever be Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                   

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

Why Many Are Wrong.

Christ, WILL LEAD

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

I recently had a few discussions with some Christians about our calling.

They were saying that they just go out and do whatever and it will be a hit and miss as to where God wants them to serve.

My take on it is that we are to wait and pray while seeking guidance through guidance councilors and fellow believers. God will reveal where he wants us to go.

Doing it their way is not be dependent upon Gods guidance, doing it my way is doing it Gods way.

 

How can He carry out His plans if we are just going about scatter brained?

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God our Shepherd) for guiding me in where, when and how You desire me to serve You best. Please remind me not to go off on my own but to patiently wait for Your guidance.

 

I respectfully thank you and ask You in the name of he who followed Your guidance all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Why the Bible Thumpers Are Wrong.

USE DISCRECION

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 New International Version

I have seen and experienced many good intentioned but wrong minded Christians who try to shove their version of the Bible down people’s throats. As a result they do more to drive unbelievers away from Christ than guide them to Christ. Consequently you are serving Satan rather than serving Christ.

 

I know because that is exactly what happened to me with that Satanic cult Jehovah’s Witnesses and with some people who were recovered alcoholics and drug addicts that became born again Christians. Because of their in your face method they drove me away from reading the Bible, praying or having anything to do with Christianity for many years.

The way that I find to be most productive is to begin with living the Christian life. Then pray that Jehovah arranges for you to encounter someone who is open to receiving Christ’s message.

When they see how you live they will be curious and inquire about why you live a different lifestyle. That is the best opportunity to share the message.

Now of course this includes studying your Bible and carrying it with you every day so that you are prepared.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God ) teach me when and how to use the correct opportunities to share You with those who are ready to hear Your Word.

I sincerely ask this in the name of He who waited thirty years before beginning His ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

 

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

I Am With You Always.

GODS LOVE

I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20 New King James Bible

Being a Christian means you will never be politically correct.

You cannot be politically correct and Christ correct. Joseph- Anthony: Green

That means standing against what is wrong and standing for what is right.

This will leave you ostracized at work, at school and many times especially in your family. Many times it will feel as if it is you against the world.

Take heart, comfort and strength in the knowledge that Christ is there with you.

You can pour your heart out to Him because He has already been there.

While He waked amongst us He was hated and despised by many. His family rejected Him and made fun of Him. So He understands exactly how you feel.

The Holy Spirit will comfort you and strengthen you.

There have been many times I have experienced it and the Holy Spirit helped me through it all.

 

“You will never stand alone while standing on the Word of God.” Kathryn Souza-Wine

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for walking with me through all my trial and tribulations as I stand for what You deem to be correct not what society falsely believes is politically correct. I praise you in Your wonderful loving name. 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

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.

Do We Have It Wrong?

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Revelation 21:1-2 Authorized King James Version

a duet of adoring babes

How many people believe that after the final judgment those who are in Christ will be taken to Heaven to live with Jesus for eternity?

However, the Book of Revelation states that a new Heaven and earth will descend down.

Now God destroyed the world in the flood and created a new one then didn’t He?

Then could this be a second cleansing of the earth by fire be the final one?

As well we will not be a spiritual being but rather a physical being with a spirit dwelling within us.

We will not be playing harps on clouds either.

Just as God gave Adam a job to do in the original paradise, so too will each of us have a specific job to do in the new paradise.

Prayer: Oh thank You gracious and loving Jehovah Jireh (God the creator) for having created such a awesome home for us to live with You for eternity. I give adulation for this incredible gift in the name of He who is the key to entry Jesus Christ. Amen.

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