I am the Door

HIS INSTRUCTION

 I am the Door; anyone who enters through Me will be saved [and will live forever] John 10:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine trying to get out of a house by walking through the wall.

Impossible is it not?

Well so too is the saying that other religions can lead to Heaven as well. There is only one way and His name is Jesus.

Imagine you are travelling down a highway and your destination is a city in the west. You see two sign posts on the road ahead. One says to take the next right to go west while another says to take the next turn to go east.

Which one will you take?

The eastbound one right?

Of course not, that will take you in the wrong direction.

So too is it comparing the Bible with any other teaching. The Bible is the only guide book to Heaven. All others lead to Hell. When others say I am narrow minded, I agree. The road to Heaven is very narrow but the only one to take to get there. When others say I am very uncompromising I just remind them that the only way to quench thirst is by drinking liquids which is very uncompromising as well.   

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with the true knowledge of which way to travel on this planet which will ultimately lead me to Your Heavenly home. I give thanks for this blessing in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the knowledge and humbleness to accept that You are the Supreme King who holds the keys that unlock Heavens door. I eagerly anticipate the time when I can spend eternity with You worshipping You who alone are worthy of complete and total worship. In Your majestic name this servant of Your prays. Amen.

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

I am Not a Thief.

Well, it is that time of year again.

The early spring flowers are coming up. An of course that means our flower gardens are jam packed with tulip bulbs and daffodils. If we did not plant them (and we did not) then you like the neighbors may wonder how all those bulbs got there.

ASIAN AMONGST THE BLOOMS

The villains of course are those wicked little rodents called squirrels. I swear they go all around the neighborhood and dig up everyone’s bulbs and bury them in our flower garden and some in our yard.

Now, there is barely any room for any other flowers.

BIRD BATH IN FLOWERS

The strange thing is though that they dig up the flowers from the neighbors that feed them and plant them in our garden while I am constantly shooing them away.

ANGEL AND CHILD IN FLOWERS

So, I am not a thief, it truly is the neighborhood squirrels that are doing it. I do not care how strange the look I get in the neighborhood when I explain that to them.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God supplies) supply these crazy rodents with some place else to stash their ill gotten loot instead of our garden. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who plants the flowers of love in our hearts Jesus Christ. Amen

P.S. The neighbors believe me due to the fact that one of them stood there talking with me and we watched one of these tiny thieves dig up one of his bulbs and dash over and bury it in our garden.

Is Not Worthy of Me.

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

 And he who does not take his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me] is not worthy of Me. Matthew 10:38 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sounds pretty cut and dry does it not?

If you are not willing to suffer for Christ, you are not worthy of Him. How many churches or Bible study groups do you hear that preached?

Now that you have heard it are you willing to pick up your cross and when you are a Christian you can be sure you will be carrying many crosses. Although this sounds absurd it is actually a blessing for us. Because we carry the cross when it becomes too burdensome for us to carry Christ comes along side of us and helps carry it with us. That brings us into close fellowship with Him.

Suffering brings folks closer together  than good times do and who better to come closer to that Christ? Joseph a son of Jehovah

As well, when we conform to Christ’s life we live a simple uncomplicated life which bring peace of mind. Not to be constantly tormented by the material world where you never have enough or the politically correct world that changes its values quicker that the spring weather on the north west coast of Canada (the Queen Charlotte Islands).

Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me helping me carry the cross You have laid upon me to carry in my service and worship to You. No matter the agony and or the misery You are worth it. It is an honour to emulate the most beautiful best friend there could ever be and the most worthy Eternal King. I praise You in Your grandiose name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Because of Your Association With

GREATEST CONTENTMENT

 Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Luke 6:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The closer you get to Christ the more offensive you will be around those who delight in walking in darkness.

If folks truly did not believe in Jesus why would they be so insulted by those living His lifestyle?

It is because they do know there is a Supreme God (Jehovah) and they are willingly giving Him the finger by living for themselves and not for Him. When they see those of us in Jehovahs family it nags at their conscience on where they are going to be spending eternity. That is what angers them.

Better to be temporarily scorned by others here on earth than permanently by Christ in Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh my most beloved Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) there is no ridicule, scorn nor any other abuse that can be inflicted upon me that can move me one inch from You. Indeed, it only brings me closer into Your beautiful sphere which is the greatest blessing of all. I give all praise to You me love for such an amazing gift. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So Little Time For

PRAY EVERYWHERE

 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation. Bible in Basic English

Quick, tell me what is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

For me it is going to conversation with my Heavenly Beloved, beginning with saying good morning I love you. Then giving Him thanks and requesting His guidance through out the coming day.

Quick: what is the fist thing you do when you climb into bed at night?

For me it is giving thanks to my Heavenly Beloved for all of His blessings He has showered on my through out the day and asking for forgiveness for when I messed up. And ending with saying good night I love you.

Then, there are the numerous times through out the day when we have conversations. Sometimes it is with what is happening to me during the day. Sometimes it is thanking Him for the blessings He has given me. Sometimes it is just admiring the beauty He is sharing with me and talking about it.

Prayer should be the first thing a Christian does upon opening their eyes and the last thing they do before closing them. It should be as natural as breathing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Why is there so much running to and fro to meetings, conventions, fellowship gatherings and yet so little time for prayer?” — Andrew Bonar

Prayer: Thank you oh my deepest love Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the most wonderful blessing of all, being in Your loving presence every day. It is the most precious treasure there could ever be. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I look forward to receiving the ultimate treasure of walking with Him and talking with Him in Your Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

I Certainly Don’t Recommend

GODS DELIGHTS

The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Psalms 25:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you want to live an easy comfortable life do not become a Christian.

A Christians life can be expected to be one filled with sorrow, pain, hardship and loneliness.

You will be filled with sorrow at the ones who reject Christ (especially those in your maternal family) and by extension ostracize you. You will not be invited to family get togethers, weddings, funerals or anniversaries. It will cut deep.

You will suffer pain of never being invited to get togethers by those you work with. You will be treated like a freak and mocked.

You will suffer loneliness as Christ takes you away from comforts of this life into service for Him. You will feel as if you are the only person in the world because everyone around you rejects you mocks you and ostracizes you. It will cost you your family, your friends, your career, maybe your health, your financial security.

You will face hardship because of what you have to surrender unto Christ (in the beginning of your walk you will not be sure if He will supply your needs).

If this sounds like to heavy of a price to pay let us look at the rewards:

You can be sure that no matter the family and friends who reject you Christ will bring to you a Christian communion that will be closer than any maternal family member or worldly friend.

No matter recession or physical injury or anything that hampers you finances Christ will always make sure you have a comfortable place to live, clothes on your back and food in your belly.

In your hardship it will bring you ever closer to Christ which will expand your love, admiration, trust and friendship with Him, which is the best treasure of them all.

It is not: is it worth giving up everything to become a Christian but rather why in the world would I desire anything but Christ in my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  “I didn’t go to religion to make me ‘happy.’ I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to endure and prosper (yes prosper because the prosperity is in the enlargement of our eternal love affair) during my suffering because of my association with You. I exalt You in the name of He gladly enduring the most horrible suffering for me Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Leads to the Solid Rock

HE LEADS ME

“So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, will be like a wise man [a far-sighted, practical, and sensible man] who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen multi million dollar homes slide down and embankment and drift out to sea in Southern California. The ocean washed away the sandy embankment so there was no solid foundation for the house.

I have seen houses that with stood hurricanes, flood, forest fires and earthquakes. They were built upon solid rock.

So too it is with our spiritual, mental and physical lives. When these are based upon the solid rock of Christ’s teachings they are on solid ground.

You always hear of new health fads (some of which are truly absurd) which in some cases are detrimental to your health. They are constantly changing. Today you are told not to eat a certain food and then tomorrow you are told it is a super food.

Obeying the dietary laws in the Bible is solid health advice to strong physical health on solid rock foundation.

There are constant psychological advice for your lives (sometimes by folks who could use a good psychiatrist). They change like the weather.

But obeying Christ’s advice always leads to the solid rock of mental health. There are always weirdo’s giving ludicrous advice on how to reach nirvana but it is astoundingly flawed.

Obeying Christ spiritual advice puts you on rock solid foundation. Hearing and obeying Jesus gives our mental, physical and spiritual lives a rock solid foundation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ma’oz (Lord my Fortress) for blessing me with the solid rock fortress of guidance and provision to build my house upon Your indestructible foundation. I thank you in the name of He who has laid that foundation for me, my cherished Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
