A closer walk with our beloved friend.

No You Can Not.



For certain people have crept in unnoticed [just as if they were sneaking in by a side door]. They are ungodly persons whose condemnation was predicted long ago, for they distort the grace of our God into decadence and immoral freedom [viewing it as an opportunity to do whatever they want], and deny and disown our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ .Jude 1:4  The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are some that teach that because we are saved by grace we can go out and do what ever we desire. “Hey Jesus loves me and by His grace my sins are forgiven so I can do whatever I desire and it’s okay because He forgives me.” That is perhaps one of satans biggest lies. We are in a Holy family and there are rules of conduct that must be followed.                                                      

For the [remarkable, undeserved] grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to reject ungodliness and worldly (immoral) desires, and to live sensible, upright, and godly lives [lives with a purpose that reflect spiritual maturity] in this present age. Titus 2:11-12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Yes it was by Christ’s blood on the cross that we gain salvation but that does not permit us to have carte blanch on sin. Once we are a member of His Divine family there are rules to be obeyed. Refuse to obey them at your own peril. Indeed, if you refuse to be obedient unto the Holy Spirits guidance you have forfeited your salvation because you have not accepted Christ as your true Savior.

Jesus loves me but if I love Him, I will be obedient to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for teaching me the truth and blessing me with the strength and fortitude to live a righteous life in Your eyes, not the worlds. I praise You in the name of the Word of Truth Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. Amen. I wholeheartedly concur. God bless.

  2. I have really missed your blog, Joseph! I look forward to catching up on more of your wonderful posts soon. ✝️

    • Thank you.
      I am enriched by our conversations

      • Me too! Thank you for your patience with me. I was in a small car accident on Friday, so I’ve been even slower catching up with my comments here than usual (neck/back pain). Still praying for you, my friend! Thank you for your support and friendship. 🙂

      • I will pray for your complete recovery. Are you alright?
        Please do not go to a chiropractor. Most folks I know that went to one ended up worse than when they went in.

      • Thanks, Joseph. You are too right about the chiropractor! I went to one years ago and ended up feeling worse, as you said.

        I am okay. I was feeling pretty good yesterday, but some back pain returned today. Just taking things one day at a time.

      • Do you use heat treatments? They usually work very good. Hot Epsom salt baths are great

      • My doctor has me do light therapy (phototherapy), which uses high frequences of light to reduce inflammation in the body naturally. As it works, the area where the light is shiining starts to get warm, so in a way it is like a heat treatment.

        Thanks for the wise words, Joseph! 🙂 I continue to pray for you regularly, my friend.

      • Sounds like a tanning bed treatment.
        You are very welcome and you are in my morning prayers every morning.

      • Not quite a tanning bed, but very effective nonetheless! Thanks again for your faithful prayers, Joseph. ✝️

      • I am glad it is effective.
        You are welcome and thank you for your prayers, they are needed and appreciated.

  3. Amen! I have personal friends who believe this. How do I convince them? Only the HOLY Spirit can. I must pray.

  4. Amen! I totally agree

  5. Great post! Reminds me of Romans 6:15 NLT, “Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not!”
