Are You Calling Jehovah a Liar?

 Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you calling Jehovah a liar?

Notice how He said for He will NEVER desert us nor forsake us. . That is a direct promise from Him unto us.

To forsake us means turn away from entirely. That is like saying you turn your back on someone. Jehovah will never turn His back on you as long as you never turn your back on Him. He will see your daily needs and supply you with them. Sometimes He will abundantly, sometimes frugally but always supply your daily needs.

If you turn your back on Him and refuse to obey Him then He most certainly will turn His back on you ( read about it in the Old Testament before the Israelites and Judeans were destroyed by the Chaldeans and Babylonians ).

It is not that Jehovah walks away from you but that you have walked away and turned your back on Him. Joseph son of Jehovah

To desert us means to leave usually without intent to return. That means to walk away from someone.

As long as you do not walk away from Jehovah, He will not walk away from you. He will never walk away from you when you are experiencing difficulties.

When you doubt your circumstances outcome you doubt that He will provide for you. That is calling Him a liar.

Notice how we are commanded to be content with what we have. That means we are not to be suckers and foolishly go out and get into debt ( which is becoming a slave by the way) buying things we do not need like a new car when there is nothing wrong with the old one, or buying a house you cannot afford or buying a new mobile phone just because it has some new gadget this year when there is nothing wrong with the old one. These things are a form of gluttony and pride. Both of them are disgusting unto Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful unto Your word to this loved child of Yours. I take great comfort and strength in Your Holy Word. I praise you in the name of the greatest Word of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Memorial Offering Before God

 And the angel said to him, “Your prayers and gifts of charity have ascended as a memorial offering before God [an offering made in remembrance of His past blessings]. “Acts 10:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

A memorial is something that keeps remembrance alive.

Many of us at time become discouraged when our gifts of charity are abused and the recipients are very ungrateful. When you become discouraged by this arrogant selfish behaviour and wonder if it has any meaning remember that even though it is not appreciated by the recipients it is cherished by Jehovah.

Your prayers and charity may be unnoticed by man but is the sweetest offering of love to Jehovah. Joseph son of Jehovah

When it seems as if those you are praying for fight both you and Jehovah to access the fulfillment of the blessing of the prayer and you wonder if it is an exercise in futility remember that it is a sweet cherished gift unto Jehovah. This is especially true when done as a gift of appreciation unto Jehovah for past blessings He has bestowed unto you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory ) for blessing me with the assurance that my prayers and gifts unto You by serving others will be rewarded with glory in Your Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of my Heavenly King who will place the crown upon my head upon entry into Your Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Firm and Unchangeable.

 

 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [standing firm and unchangeable]. Psalm 119:89 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovahs word has stood the test of time.

Most other religions have faded into history or been renovated to accommodate the times.

Jehovahs word is firm and unchangeable in every society.

Psychological thought for society has changed throughout history.

Jehovahs never changes and is always true.

If you desire wisdom in every aspect of you life turn to the only book that is the Divine truth and the epitome of Wisdom that has stood unchangeable and firm for eons. It is called The Holy Bible.

Why not ask Jehovah to reveal its treasures to you and see the amazing results in your life.

It still amazes me every day with its wisdom.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for consistently enlightening me to the amazing treasures in Your awesome Book of Wisdom ( the Holy Bible). I praise You in the name of the wisest teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

With Great Confidence.

 

And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose For those whom He foreknew [and loved and chose beforehand], He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son [and ultimately share in His complete sanctification], so that He would be the firstborn [the most beloved and honored] among many believers. Romans 8:28-29 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Boy I sure never had that, great confidence, when enduring my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snare in my early walk with Christ.

The two questions that were constantly asked of Him were: “Why are you doing this to me? and “Where are You through all this?”

When the raging storms and fire storms had passed it was revealed that He was there. These circumstances were used to teach me valuable lessons, the most important of which was there was to be complete trust in our Savior that He was walking with it with us.

As well they were used to burn off the dross and mold me into a beautiful child of Jehovahs.

Now there is constant thanks and wonder ( at just what He is doing through this experience ) during these events.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for the awesome work You have accomplished in this difficult lump of clay. I praise You in the name of He who transformed some very difficult lumps of clay into world changing disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Can be a Superman.

 

And [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength Ephesians 1:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We can be a superman or a superwoman.

No we will not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, no we will not be faster than a speeding bullet not stronger than steel.

We have free and plentiful supplies every day of the power from the Holy Spirit.

This super power will enable us to be patient when we want to scream at someone or something.

This super power will bless us with astounding wisdom which will make scammers and scammers look like fools whenever they foolishly attempt to entrap us.

This super power will enable us to love when the world says to hate.

This super power will enable us to forgive when the world says we should extract vengeance.

This super power is exclusively available unto Jehovahs children when we ask for it and obey the Fathers commands on how to receive it.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth ( The Lord Strong and Mighty ) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to walk as a loving obedient child of Yours through this dark cold world. I extol Thee in the name of He who is the Light of the World Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

This Causes Much Rejoicing.

 

Yes, if a man should live many years, let him rejoice in them all Ecclesiastes 11:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being in my elder years causes me to rejoice in reflection of the amazing walk Jehovah has blessed me with with Him all these decades. Now as well there is rejoicing in being able to share these experiences with the younger generation.

Oh, there is the aches and pains and limitations that come with age. But during those aches and pains there is deep communion with Jehovah. Indeed these cause me to enjoy deeper communion with my Beloved than at any other time in my life. This causes much rejoicing.

The suffering come close to Christ and He comes close to them. Joseph son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for Your friendship and companionship throughout my life and now in my elder years. Thank you for blessing me with Your endearing love. I praise You in the name of my Loving best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Things Which Have Been Confined.

 

‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish. Jeremiah 33:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we ask of Jehovah to open our eyes to revelations and His awesome magnificence of boy does He deliver.

He has pulled back the curtain to reveal amazing things in His creation which reveal His awesome beauty and attributes. The world does not see these things because they are in the material world. It constantly amazes me both what He shows me and that those around me do not see them.

The Lord blesses me with insight to the events that are unraveling around us and their significance. When I try to explain it to those walking in the world they believe me to be absurd. It astounds me that they cannot see what is so obvious. Many times it is if they are in a different dimension that me.

It is so wonderful to meet one who walks with Christ and that we see these same things. It is some of the greatest conversations I have ever enjoyed. It is as if we cannot stop talking about them and sharing them with each other.

Do not be shocked when you try to speak of Jehovahs incredible revelations He has blessed you with and those around you cannot see them nor understand them.

A great way to illustrate this is when I came home from serving the Lord in Asia and tried to explain what it was like living in a different culture that thinks differently than us. At first they all laughed at me and said that was nonsense. Then a few months later it became headline news ( of course one of the things I am referring to is the ghost cities that dotted the land around where I lived).

So too it is with those who are not of Christs. It is foolishness to them and absurd.

Those of us that are Christ centered in our thinking have revelations that are absurd to the world Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory) for revealing Your magnificent glory to me and for communicating Your awesome wisdom to me. I extol Thee in the name of my glorious King Christ Jesus. Amen

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