A closer walk with our beloved friend.

There is Nothing on Earth to Compare to It.



In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you.John 14:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One day while in a place in the mountains where folks have seldom traveled I was sitting on a hill absorbing all the awesome beauty. It was a place of beauty, peace and warmth.A voice beside me softly said:” This is but a taste of Heaven.” I looked around and no one was there. I believe I was privileged to see a glimpse of Heaven.

On another occasion I was sitting on the top of a small mountain in a remote place and there was a feeling of every molecule in my body being electrified. A voice softly said unto me:” I love you with an ever lasting love.” I believe that was Jesus and could not but help yelling at the top of my lungs: “I love you Jesus, I love you.”

These are true events.

Afterwards it felt like it was just a moment but looking at my watch it was hours that the  each experience lasted.

If that is but a taste of Heaven, there is nothing on earth to compare to it and am eagerly anticipating being with my Beloved for an eternity.

Just as the loving father in Luke’s gospel welcomed home his lost son, our Father will one day welcome us into heaven together with all others who love and trust in Jesus.” Dr. Rodney Rathmann

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with the opportunity to experience Your amazing love and the wonderful eternal home You have graciously prepared for me when I come home unto You. I eagerly anticipate the time when I shall always be with You for eternity. I exalt You in the name of my loving big brother who shall be there to greet me to Your Heavenly home with open arms Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am an unpaid live in care giver for my aged mother. As well I regularly do volunteer work with a local church group helping working poor establish themselves independently. . I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Dear Joseph,

    Hello, my brother in Christ! How are you? I was looking at all of your categories to see if you have written a post about baptism and I couldn’t find it.

    Whenever you have the time, would you please explain to me your views on baptism? Some people say that baptism is mandatory in order to be saved. Others say that we are saved by our faith in Jesus not by our works, which means that getting baptized doesn’t really count towards salvation. What are your thoughts on this discussion? Anything that you can illuminate would be greatly appreciated.

    May this message find you basking in Jehovah’s Glory and Grace.

    Your (lost) sister in Jesus

    • I was baptized by the Holy Spirit at a week long Christian retreat and will never forget it. It was just Him and me (well it occurred in a tent with Christian brothers and sisters present but they were not involved in it).

      However, once we accept Christ as our Savior and King, the Holy Spirit comes and lives within us. I was baptized as a baby but have never been formally been baptized in a ceremony.

      • Dear Joseph,

        Thank you so much for your explanation and clarity! This makes perfect sense to me. I was wondering why I feel so connected to the Holy Spirit, but I have never been formally baptized, either.

        I am so grateful that you are sharing your wisdom with me.

        May Jehovah’s blessings continue to overflow in your life.

        Your sister in Jesus

      • I am honoured to have helped you precious sister.

        May you always bask in the warmth of Jehovahs gentle sunshine of love.
