A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Accepted in the Beloved

There is always the tension in the Christian life between the “now” and the “yet to be.” However, what we are now in the eyes of God is what we shall be in practice when we stand before Him in complete, perfect sanctification in glory.

Even now there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Rom. 8:1). He has made us acceptable in the Beloved (Eph. 1:6). Indeed, we are complete in Him (Col. 2:10).

How do we explain this tension in our daily lives between our practical sanctification and our eternal position and standing before God?

The believer’s positional standing before God never ever changes. No believer is less justified than another. You are either acquitted by God or you stand condemned. You are either a child of God by adoption or you are an enemy. You either have eternal life, or you are dead in trespasses and sins.

Our standing before God, once we are His child, does not change. Our sonship does not depend upon our fellowship with Him. It is the other way around. Our fellowship with God depends upon our sonship.

There are degrees in our fellowship, but there can be none in our justification before God. Sometimes we are warm and sometimes we are cold in our fellowship, but our sonship never changes since we were adopted as His children.

Our justification is entirely above the fluctuations of Christian experience. It knows nothing of degrees or the rise and fall of our emotions. You are either justified by faith or you are condemned. We are “in Christ” and He is “the same, yesterday, today and forever.”

Christ alone is our righteousness and results in our right relationship with God. Christ is of God “made unto us righteousness.”

If a right standing depended upon our faith or our faithfulness we would be eternally condemned. It depends upon Christ’s righteousness accepted as His gift by faith. It does not depend upon our endeavors, but upon the finished work of Christ. “You are complete in Christ.”

How can this be true? We know ourselves all too well. We are imperfect and we fail. Yet God’s word says that we are complete in Christ.

Regarding the Christian’s acceptance and standing before a righteous God is concerned, God sees nothing from His throne but Christ Jesus alone and Him crucified. And since the believer is in Him and one with Him, he shares Christ’s place in the Father’s heart. No matter how unworthy the believer is in himself, he may know without a doubt that he is “accepted in the Beloved.”

You cannot be condemned if you are in Christ. Christ is without sin and for us to be in Christ means to be accepted in the Beloved.

Jesus Christ presents us to the Father clothed in the garments of His own righteousness.

Jesus represents us to God. We see God in Christ. God sees us in Christ. God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. We in Christ are reconciled to God.

The Christian can never pray, “O Lord, look how pure and holy I am; look at me and preserve my soul, for I am holy.” That would be utter nonsense. We can only come into His presence and with humble gratitude accept His grace saying, “Lord, be merciful to me the sinner.”

Moreover, the steadfastness of our joy and the stability of our spiritual growth depends upon our keeping our gaze fixed immovably upon the one Blessed Object upon which the Father’s gaze is always fixed (Heb. 12:2).Selah!

He Would Comfort Me With

I will never fail you. I will never abandon you. Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

This promise has brought light to my darkest days.

When I was planting trees, the camps were like Sodom and Gomorrah a lot of sex, drugs and booze. Their morals fit the description as well. That is why I camped outside of it. So many times there was such an overpowering feeling of loneliness and as if it was the world against me. Upon praying to my Beloved, He would comfort me with this verse.

The same was true in China where morals were considered stupid and for fools. This was true not just with most Chinese but with the majority of foreign teachers as well.

Then, there was the crucifixion. That is where whatever or whomever you love must have that love crucified. That does not mean you do not love them anymore ( although it may ) it means you do not put them above Christ. It was my most painful experience and it was when Christ softly whispered this verse in my ear that there was strength to carry on.

No matter what you are going through our loving strong Christ is walking through it with you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend John 15:15 ) that You are the truest friend ever. You are always by my side through thick and thin. Through the sunshine and through the storms. I exalt You in Your loving name. Amen.

May you take comfort and gain strength that Christ is with you always.

No One can Hurt Your

No one can hurt your feelings without your consent. No one can make you angry, disappointed, intimidated, or jealous.

Substitute any reactive emotion with the wisdom, strength and self control of The Holy Spirit. Whatever it is, no one can afflict you with it without your consent.

You can choose to see things differently when you depend upon The Holy Spirit to open your eyes to Jehovahs meaning instead of societies or your own faulty reasoning. It’s the only one you’ll ever need.

The people we interact with become how we treat them, more than we’d like to admit. That is why wicked company corrupts godly souls while godly souls mould us more into Christs character.

Where there are no boundaries in life, there is no respect for either you nor those around you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May The Holy Spirit keep you from the wicked who drag you into the pig mire and guide you to the godly who help you transform into a beautiful child of Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah

I look forward to hearing me cherished King say: “ Well done my good and faithful servant. “ as He greets me with open loving arms and a joyful heart. I praise You in His glorious name. Amen

May you be blessed with obeying the Kings choice of service for you for His kingdom. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

I Was Pressured Greatly To

Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 1 John 2:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Being a bit of an old geezer, I have seen oh so many fads come and go.

There was the hippy generation, the disco generation, the punk generation, and I have no idea what the generations from the nine teen nineties are called.

During one of them I was pressured greatly to conform to their lifestyle. I was bullied and laughed at a lot because of my refusal to join in the fun times.

It is interesting to see them now. They realize that lifestyle was meaningless.

Reflecting back on my walk with Christ in that time there are moments of pure ecstasy, there were many moments of suffering which brought me ever closer into Christ’s loving arm and engaged my trust in Him my adoration in Him, my love for Him and my dedication in service unto Him. This was good and pleasing unto my cherished Father in Heaven, King in Heaven and amazing tutor ( The Holy Spirit ) .

Mind you, this transformation will continue even in our Heavenly Home so do not think you are a finished product.

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“I came to Him because I did not know which way to turn. I remained with Him because there is no other way I wish to turn. I came to Him longing for something I did not have. I remain with Him because I have something I will not trade. I came to Him as a stranger. I remain with Him in the most intimate of friendships. I came to Him unsure about the future. I remain with Him certain about my destiny. “Ravi Zacharias

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) thank you for Your patient transformation of this rough piece of clay into the beautiful creation You intend for me to be. I look forward to experiencing what the finished product will be in Heaven. I extol Thee in the name of He who took twelve rag tag hilly billy boys from Galilee into a fire that set the world aflame two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you allow yourself to be transformed into a Heavenly creation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Yet True Godliness with Contentment Is

Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Godliness is conforming ones life to Jehovahs will.

Contentment is being satisfied and grateful for what you have.

Therefore, what is being said here is that spiritual wealth that can only come from Jehovah is the greatest wealth of all.

Abundance, or prosperity, is having all that you need to meet any circumstance, with enough left over to give wherever God might direct you.

The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalms 84:11

When we walk in harmony with the Holy Spirits guidance our gracious Heavenly Father supplies all of our daily needs. Thus, trusting Jehovah at His word that He will meet all of our needs ( not wants) we will not suffer the stress that the world is experiencing at this troublesome time.

If I want the Masters rewards I must be willing to obey His direction in my life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for Your abundant grace that is showered upon me every day as I walk in obedience unto The Holy Spirits guidance.

I applaud You in the name of the greatest spiritual gift You have blessed me with, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart be open and obedient unto The Holy Spirits guidance this day so your day will be filled with contentment. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The gentleness of a

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:15-16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you kindly Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength Psalm 27:1 ) for walking amongst us so You understand the trials and temptations, the tribulations and sorrows we experience in our daily life.

As such, when I come to You seeking help You bless ME with: strength where I am weak and the opportunity to use this strength to help others. The mercy to forgive me when I succumb to my weakness and repent of them.

May I extend that to those who repent when they have wronged me. The gentleness of a loving friend to teach others how to be members of Jehovahs holy family when they are uneducated in the proper etiquette befitting such a noble family.

May I guide others to behave in such a regal manner.

I humbly implore You to grant this petition this in Your gracious name. Amen.

May you be blessed with copious amounts of tutoring at the Masters feet to enable you to be a grand example of a noble family and plenty of opportunities to use them.

I Beseech Thee Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL

“Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.” Ephesians 4:2The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Humble means that you do not place yourself above nor below anybody. You are confident in who you are. As Christians we know we are Jehovahs children, Jesus Christs servants and The Holy Spirits students. As such we do not need to be people pleasers nor to be abusive to others.

Gentle means to be considerate, tenderhearted, and compassionate. This means we are to be considerate (which also means respectful ) to others.

Tenderhearted means we are to be encouraging to others going through rough times. Compassion means we are to help others where there is a need.

Tenderhearted is mental while compassionate is taking physical action.

Patient means we are slow to lose our temper when others are slow to catch on or when they are just slow ( read in traffic or in check out lines ).

We need to judge others by the same degree in which we desire to be judged.

No, that does not mean we are not to judge others but that we all have trait that are annoying, like smacking lips loudly while eating. That is what making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love means.

These are impossible without the aid of the Holy Spirits power in us.

Prayer: I beseech Thee Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to emulate my idol Jesus Christ in all of my interactions this day.

I beseech Thee my love to bless me with discernment to know when I am being abused and take the proper course of action to stop it while behaving in a Christ like manner.

Por favor my Love bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance, strength and respect towards all that come my way this day. In the name of His with whom I so deeply desire to emulate in every aspect of my life I humbly request this, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with The Holy Spirits guidance, power and love in all of your interactions this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

He Instructed Me To

Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and he will avenge you.” Proverbs 20:22 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

I may get in trouble for saying this but in my experience it is true.

When someone does a woman wrong in their eyes they are very spiteful and will do anything they can to make your life pure living Hell. Therefore they need to take heed of this verse.

Before I was a mature Christian if someone crossed me look out. I was the most devious, cruel creature you had ever met when I got my pound of flesh.

Then, one day the Lord spoke to me and educated me that I was playing god when I met out the punishment for those who offended me. He instructed me to leave vengeance in His hands because He knows if the culprit did it intentionally or not.

There is nothing like getting someone back who did the offence unintentionally. Boy, there is a lot of egg on the face then and a innocent suffers which is even worse).

He knows the offender and so knows how to met out the appropriate punishment. I have seen His strong arm met out punishment and it brought out terror in my heart because I knew that could be me if when convicted by the Holy Spirit I refuse to repent.

Revenge is best left in Jehovahs hands. He knows how to deliver true justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal ( Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses ) for blessing me with burning off of the dross of having a revengeful heart.

Although it is difficult at times I know that true justice will be served in Your time and in Your way.

During this time of waiting for Your justice to be delivered please bless the offender to come to their senses and repent of their crime so they do not have to suffer because of it.

I gratefully thank You and humbly request this in the name of He who washes the filthiest sins away from the repentant heart, Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah
