He is Able to Keep. December 4, 2014

I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him 2 Timothy 1:12 New King James Version
When we become Christians just as Christ is our King, so too are we servants. As such we make a prayerful commitment to serve where He guides us. Making that commitment we have faith that He will provide the opportunities and tools to complete the task He has assigned for us to do. It need not be a huge commitment to serve as a missionary overseas, it may be a commitment in our communities like volunteering at hospitals or schools or other numerous opportunities.
A commitment to Jehovah is a commitment of service. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Another aspect is the daily commitment to serve in small ways like saying a kind word to a server at a restaurant or giving up your seat to an elderly riser on the bus and multiple other ways throughout the day.
“The stream of spontaneous acts of Godly kindness carries us to the sea of contentment and peace.” Constance Hurst-Howard
The benefit to you of course is the joy it brings to your heart. Of course there are many ingrates out there who will not have the decency to say thank you but keep in mind you are doing it for Christ’s praise, not the praise of others.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13New King James Version
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with opportunities to be as gracious to others today as You have been gracious to me. I humbly request this in the name of my beloved gracious king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I heard that God’s name is supposed to be “Yahweh.” Why do people call him “Jehovah” instead? One sect, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, has even used this word in its name.


In Hebrew the name of God is spelled YHWH. Since ancient Hebrew had no written vowels, it is uncertain how the name was pronounced originally, but there are records of the name in Greek, which did have written vowels. These records indicate that in all likelihood the name should be pronounced “Yahweh.”

Shortly before the first century A.D., it became common for Jews to avoid saying the divine name for fear of misusing it and breaking the second commandment (“You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain,” Dt 5:11). Whenever they read Scripture aloud and encountered the divine name, they substituted another Hebrew word, “Adonai” (which means “Lord” or “my Lord”), in its place.

Eventually Hebrew developed written vowels, which appeared as small marks called vowel points and were placed above and below the consonants of a word. In the sixth or seventh century some Jews began to place the vowel points for “Adonai” over the consonants for “Yahweh” to remind the reader of Scripture to say “Adonai” whenever he read “Yahweh.”

About the 13th century the term “Jehovah” appeared when Christian scholars took the consonants of “Yahweh” and pronounced it with the vowels of “Adonai.” This resulted in the sound “Yahowah,” which has a Latinized spelling of “Jehovah.” The first recorded use of this spelling was made by a Spanish Dominican monk, Raymundus Martini, in 1270.

Interestingly, this fact is admitted in much Jehovah’s Witness literature, such as their Aid to Bible Understanding (p. 885). This is surprising because Jehovah’s Witnesses loathe the Catholic Church and have done everything in their power to strip their church of traces of Catholicism. Despite this, their group’s very name contains a Catholic “invention,” the name “Jehovah.”

Jehovah’s Witnesses blast orthodox Christendom for “hiding the name of God” by replacing “Jehovah” with “the Lord” whenever “Jehovah” appears in Scripture. They charge this is a Jewish “superstition” that dishonors God (which it does not). Yet their own organization has a name that was invented as a result of the same thinking that produced use of “the Lord.”

And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? (source)

Abeltje Quintijn: “to say so, Abel jr.”… I heard strange thinks from a Muslim, in blood-line Abel became Jesus, Cain became Mohammed. Someone knows if that’s a fact? If so, I understand that Christian’s and Muslim’s are still having a quarrel.

Each step I take my Savior goes before me And with His loving hand He leads the way

And with each breath I whisper I adore Thee Oh what joy to walk with Him each day

Each step I take I know that He will guide me To higher ground He ever leads me on

Until some day the last step will be taken Each step I take just leads me closer home
