It is Indeed the Coldest and Darkest

GODS ASSURANCE

 

Just Before. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. Matthew 14:25 The Holy Bible New International Version

Being an avid outdoors man all my life I can certainly attest to the fact that it is indeed the coldest and darkest just before dawn.

From decades of experience it seems to me like Jesus always comes to us in our trials and tribulations, sorrows and danger when it is its most intense.

I think the reason for that is most of us chose to face our giants alone being independent.

It is only as they get progressively worse and all else fails that we go to Christ.

One of the benefits of this is our great and deep appreciation for His rescue.

Unfortunately for us the lesson of depending upon Him for salvation must be repeated numerous times before we accept the fact that it is unto Christ that we must always go whenever any trouble comes our way.

Finally learning that lesson and going to Christ first has prevented my storms from becoming full blown destructive typhoons.

Just remember Jesus has been there, Jesus cares. He is always willing to help but we must first call out to Him and then obey His instruction for us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:18 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Jesus’ love is the bright healing light that evaporates that darkness of sorrow, worry, pain, loneliness and fear. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with being the beacon of love, strength and assurance during my darkest hours. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Only One Who

DEVINE PLANS

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:8-10 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Have you ever wondered why it seems as if everyone is angry at something these days?

Have you noticed how folks are always changing their jobs so much these days?

Have you ever wondered why folks are such addicts to sports teams, movie stars and musicians these days (it has always existed but no where near to the level it is at today)?

I believe the reason is because they have no purpose in their lives so they try to find purpose in sports teams, musicians, movie stars and participating in charitable events they do not have their heart in to. Of course they find no real meaning to their lives.

The only one who can accomplish that is Jesus.

Without purpose life has no meaning, it is trivial, pointless and petty. Jesus is the only one who blesses us with purpose here in this life and in the eternal one that is to come. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So, why do most folks refuse to go to Jesus for meaning and purpose in their lives?

Because they are too arrogant, selfish and stubborn to surrender their will to Christs. They regret in now but will really regret in in their final destination which is Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalm 10:16 for blessing me with purpose, meaning and fulfillment in my life. That of course is to be Your humble servant. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Be Unceasing and Persistent.

 Be unceasing and persistent in prayer. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have faithfully prayed for a certain woman to come to Christ daily for over twenty years. Through all this time she persistently rejected all attempt’s to listen to anyone about Christ.

Within the last year she began going to a Bible study and now attends a church down the street on Sundays and once during the week. She still attends the first church one a week. She has even invited many of her friends to join her, most of which accept and have become members of that church. She reads daily devotionals and prays every day. Her disposition has metamorphosed so much many people do not even know her anymore.

That is the reward for persistent prayer. Of course not all of our prayers will be answered.

There are men and women that become very angry and even hate me for praying for them. They choose to remain walking in darkness. That is their choice.

Jehovah always gives everyone a choice. Choose wisely. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) with Your Divine strength to continue on in prayer even when there does not appear to be any results. I thank You in the name of He who never ceased praying as He walked amongst us 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.

At All Times Through Him

 

At all times through Him, therefore, let us at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. Hebrews 13:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

That can be a difficult one can’t it?

You are going through a divorce or death of a loved one. How can you give thanks in that circumstance?

Give thanks that through Jesus He will guide you, heal you, comfort you, encourage you and strengthen you. The world does not have this blessing.

The same can be said in every situation in life.

I thank my Beloved best Friend Jesus Christ for walking with me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I never would have made it without Him.

Whenever theses events are shared with another they are glorifying His awesome name.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with walking with me through the firestorms in my life encouraging me, strengthening me, comforting me and healing me. I extol Thee in the name of He who calmed the raging storms for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Source of Great Gain

But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Living a simple Godly life is the key to contentment. Joseph son of Jehovah

My life is very simple and there is great contentment.

I find the greatest delight in the simple beauty that Jehovah surrounds us with each and every day like listening to Jehovahs symphony of wild birds or the wind dancing through the leaves. I love to watch Jehovahs ballet of snowflakes gently swirling and twirling to the ground like tiny ballerinas. I love to drink in the sweetest fragrance there is, wildflowers in the early morning. What a wonderful blessing exceedingly blesses us with daily.

It is too bad most people are in too much of a rush serving their dead gods ( going to work to pay for the things you have gone in debt for which cannot love you back and which you soon become bored with).

“I am content; that is a blessing greater than riches; and he whom that is given need ask no more.” -Henry Fielding

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with the amazing treasures You reveal to me in Your stunning creation. Thank you that at those times we walk together and talk together in wonderful loving communion. I praise You in the name of He with whom I cherish looking forward to walking through Heaven with 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.
