He Knows.

 

Declaring the end and the result from the beginning Isaiah 46:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do not worry, Jehovah knew these things would happen from the beginning of time. He knows everything.

The difference is that when we obey His commands He knows the blessings He will generously shower upon us. He knows the hard times we will encounter so He knows the strength, wisdom, guidance and support we will need and bountifully provides for us. It makes Him very joyful to help and share with the children He adores so much.

When we are disobedient unto Him He knows the pain and sorrow it will bring to us. No, He will not cause bad things to happen to us because He is a loving God. However He allows us to reap the rewards for our disobedience. This causes Him to weep bitterly ( bitterly means to weep with a lot of pain).

A wise man obeys Jehovahs commands and is rewarded accordingly. A fool scoffs at Jehovahs commands and reaps the consequences. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with Your firm, steady hand through the path of life You have wisely chosen for me. I exalt Thee in the name of He who is the path to Shepherds me all the way to Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We All Suffer It.

You are jealous and covet [what others have] and your lust goes unfulfilled;so you murder. You are envious and cannot obtain [the object of your envy]; so you fight and battle. James 4:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer it.

It is a thief, it steals our joy and contentment. It comes in two names that walk hand in hand in a destructive walk in our hearts. It makes us filthy. It is called jealousy and it companions name is envy.

It is only natural to experience jealousy when we see someone excel at something we work hard at but cannot compare. When they are praised for their work the thief called jealousy creeps into our hearts. Jehovah reveals how delighted He is with us in our Divine walk with Him. Jehovahs love causes the wicked beast of jealousy to flee like a rat with the light shone on it.

We all experience envy whether it is someones good looks, prestige or wealth. That is when the Christian meditates upon Jehovahs Divine love for us and companionship with us. It fills our hearts with love, joy and peace. This causes the wicked beast of envy to flee like a rat with the light shone upon it.

Jealousy says, “I want what you have.”

Envy says, “If I can’t have what you have, then I don’t want you to have it.” Envy rejoices at others’ failures.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace and love to share with the world when they are living a pitiful cold life without You. I exalt You in the name of He who is the epitome of love Jesus Christ. Amen

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

From the First Day.

 “Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. Daniel 10:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

From the first day we set our hearts to understanding Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and our loving relationship with them we begin a life long journey of deep knowledge in this quest. Jehovah will always bless this request with amazing revelations.

Now we must also maintain a attitude of humbleness towards them which in this case represents deep respect and awe.

As we continue on this quest we go deeper and deeper into Jehovahs Holy presence. Our bond grows stronger and stronger. We metamorphose into souls of which is confusing to the world.

Indeed whenever we reflect back on where we were to where we are now the transformation is stunning to us.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with divulging Your awesomeness to me and for the amazing transformation You have accomplished in my life into being the loving child You know I am cable of being in Your Holy family. I extol Thee in the name of He whom has taught me so much Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Walk in Union with Him.

 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in [union with] Him [reflecting His character in the things you do and say—living lives that lead others away from sin]. Colossians 2:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How are we supposed to walk in union with Christ?

The first step is to pray for revelation with a sincere heart so we may be blessed with Holy communion with Him.

The second step is to read our Bible, read Christian literature and listen to Christian teachers as they expound upon Christs character and the Holy Spirits transformation of us into union with His Divine character.

This is a life time exercise that must become second nature to us in every aspect of our daily lives.

The more obedient we are to the Holy Spirits guidance the more He resides within us.

“True religion is a union of God with the soul, a real participation of the divine nature, the very image of God drawn upon the soul, or in the apostle’s phrase, it is Christ formed in us.” Henry Scougal

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with the most incredible friendship possible. I cherish every moment we spend together. I praise You in the name of my best friend with whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Not Futile.

 Your labor in the Lord is not futile nor wasted. 1 Corinthians 15:58 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you serving the Lord yet not seeing any results?

Take heart.

Seeds do not bear fruit over night but some grow quick while others take longer to bear fruit. Joseph son of Jehovah T

hey say that when we get to Heaven one of the greatest surprises will be the people around us that we served and then moved on. We do not believe we gave them a lasting affect but afterwards they blossomed into beautiful children of Jehovah.

I know, when I was a teacher there would be many months with no visible change in my children. I would call out to the Lord and ask Him why I was wasting my time here suffering these hardships for nothing. Then one day some of them would come up to me like children on Christmas morning and share with me that they had given their hearts and lives to Jesus. Because we were in a communist country and there was no Bibles readily available would ask me if I had one which I gladly obliged. I cannot tell you how my heart danced with ecstasy in pure joy.

Any time spent serving the Lord is never wasted time. Joseph son of Jehovah

You may not see the results in your lifetime but take heart. Some of the seeds you have sown will blossom into Heavenly children of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful to my request for the honour of planting the seeds of a Heavenly crop, even if I do not see the harvest during my lifetime. I exalt You in the name of the greatest sower Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Peevish Discontented Minds

  The whole congregation of the Israelites [grew discontented and] murmured and rebelled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,and the Israelites said to them, Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and ate bread until we were full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this entire assembly with hunger.” (To understand Israel’s rebellious behavior, it is important to grasp the contrast between life in Egypt and nomadic life in the wilderness. Despite the hardships of slavery survival was not an issue in Egypt, where they were guaranteed food and other necessities. But the desert wilderness was hostile and unforgiving, and survival was an art. Desert nomads needed to understand the wilderness in order to stay alive; they had to learn, among other things, how to protect themselves from the weather, where to find water and pasture, and how to find and prepare scarce food, or live primarily from what their livestock could provide them. So the Israelites viewed every new problem they faced as life-threatening. Instead of looking back and taking comfort from God’s earlier miracles, they doubted God’s ability and willingness to help them. Their fears and doubts subsequently came to be expressed as irrational anger toward Moses. ) Exodus 16:2-3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many of us ask Jehovah for something but are never satisfied?

We ask for a job but when we get one we do not like the work because it is too hard or it is too boring.

We ask for a place to live but it is too far from the bus stop or grocery store or park.

We ask for direction in life but it is not where we want to go.

We desire good Christian friends but can always find fault with them.

I think the real reason we are discontented is because of greed. We want the best and nothing less is good enough for us.

Jehovah blesses with what we need not always with what we want. Joseph son of Jehovah

That is the ultimate insult of ungratefulness and a huge slap in the face to our loving generous Father in Heaven. More so for those of us that have walked with Christ for any length of time and so can reflect back at His previous provisions for us. Peevish discontented minds will find fault with that which has no fault in it but that it is too good for them.

Those that might be very happy often make themselves very miserable by their discontents. Matthew Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a grateful heart towards you and those around me for all the wonderful blessings You and those around me share with me every day. I ask this in the name of the greatest blessing of which I am eternally grateful for Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

His Name is Jehovah.

 “When my soul was fainting within me, I remembered the Lord, And my prayer came to You, Into Your holy temple. Jonah 2:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The older we get the more our soul faints with in, except, for those of us who belong to Christ.

You know why our soul does not grow weak?

Because we have the greatest strengthener there can ever be. His name is Jehovah.

I cannot count the number of times my finances were exhausted and I had no job because of a recession. Yes money was put away for this inevitability but it was put into investments that a naive one like me did not realize that the investment firm would charge exorbitant charges for cashing in the investment and the blood sucker government would take a huge chunk as well leaving me with a pittance to hold me over. That is what happens when you trust in corporations in my opinion, they are out to make money off of you and do not want to pay out. It took many years to walk away from these scoundrels and depend upon the best investment councilor there is. His name is Jehovah. Since listening to His wise advice and obeying His guidance there has never been a shortage of fiances ( mind you part of that is learning to live frugally and not to be a part of the foolish materialistic world).

In my younger days I used to read a lot of self help books to improve myself. Some were good and are still referenced to today ( especially because they confirm what the Bible says) but most were complete rubbish (especially the ones written by the “ new agers” ).

Self help is no where near as effective as Jehovahs help. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Today I depend upon the wisest Guidance Councilor there is.

His name is Jehovah.

Through His guidance book ( the Holy Bible), good Christian councilors and preachers He has remolded me in so many incredible ways so that there is no semblance of the old creature but only a new and much improved child of His.

The same is said in dealing with interpersonal relationships. Yes there are still times when my soul becomes weak within me but when those times come ( and they always do ) the proper course of action is taken and the soul is strengthened. The proper course of course is taking it to my loving, wise Councilor.

His name is Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your ultimate strength in my times of weaknesses. I would have never made it without You my love. I extol Thee in the name of my strong Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

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