He is Close To

The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 New Living Translation

trust in God

Those of us that have walked with Christ for a while know full well the difficulty in trusting in Him. There are times it seems as if there is nothing but trouble a woe in our lives. It seems as if the world is crushing down on us and we are going to explode. We cry out unto Jehovah but He is silent. This is the most difficult time to trust in Him. Even those of us that have walked the trail for a long time have at times difficulty trusting in Him during crushing crises.

That is okay though.

As long as we call out unto Him, trusting He will answer (and He always does). For me I have experienced Jehovah delivering me from the tsunami as well as being blessed with His presence during the tornadoes of life. One thing that is the same in each is His Spirit being with me through it all. He encourages, reassures and strengthens me through it all.

No matter the storm, Jesus is right there walking through it with us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) – Psalm 20:9 for blessing me with Your salvation from the ravages of the tsunamis and tornadoes of life. In deep awe and appreciation I do thank You in the name of He whose blood saved me from the burning fires of Hell, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Believe in Christian Evolution.

Here is the reason why I believe in Christian evolution: 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. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

This transformation takes filthy men and women and transforms them into beautiful children of Jehovah.

It transforms addicts into Jehovahs children.

It transforms the strongest atheists into solid children of Jehovah.

You name the sin and Jesus’ blood transforms that sinner into a loving obedient child of Jehovah.

Now this is not done in the flash of a moment. No, it takes a lifetime of commitment to Jehovahs teaching and surrendering of our will unto His will.

work-in-progress

This process does not end at Heavens Gate but continues on in our Heavenly home.

You are in a lifetime evolution when you become a Christian going from a dirty clump of clay to a beautiful work of art. Joseph a son of Jehovah

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28) The LORD Creator for being so persistent with this tough lumpy blob of clay and evolving me into the beautiful creation You intended me to be. I exalt You in the name of He whose love is the most beautiful creation that is constantly evolving in my heart Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are You Willing To

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer

Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?

Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?

In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?

Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?

Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?

When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?

On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.

Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?

Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.

Now, that does not sound stupid does it? 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen

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

So How’s That Going Now Eh?

FURNACE OF HELL

“Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10 New International; Version.

I remember in the sixties and seventies when the mantra was: sex, drugs and rock and roll. Being an infant in Christ I knew this was wrong and refused to go along with the crowd. Yes I was laughed at and bullied a lot, but still wouldn’t back down.

Now over forty years later when I go back home sometimes I run into that crowd. Boy do they look ancient. Their bodies are all broken down from living in the fast lane. They are shells of human beings. They have no family or real friends. They have no real purpose in life, yet stubbornly cling to those destructive dogmas. Many of them are either homeless or living in decrepit buildings.  I look at them and ask them: “So how’s that going now eh, with your sex, drugs and rock and roll?” 

It is not that I am being arrogant towards them but am asking if they have had enough of this life and am willing to come to Christ. They all laugh and are proud of their lifestyle (although I do not know why) and mock me for being a Christian.

No man is free who is a slave to the flesh. Seneca

I on the other hand have slowly over decades  blossomed into a beautiful flower for Christ. Yes my service to Him has been hard, but He was and is with me every step of the way. We have planted a lot of seeds all over the world. Walking with Jesus brings a life filled with divine love, joy and hope.

If someone is trying to manipulate you into doing drugs or having premarital sex don’t walk away from them, RUN.

As surely as the sun rises is the east so too will the vile wickeds lifestyle lead to pain, emptiness, heartache and loneliness. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Take it from an old fart that has both lived it and seen it. You are too precious to Jesus to throw your life away.

”If we (freely) admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins (dismiss our lawlessness) and (continuously) cleanse us from all unrighteousness (everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action)” 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

If you are living that lifestyle now call out to Jesus now. He is always there, He always cares. He loves you.

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him firm in your faith, the God of all grace, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.” 1 Peter 5: 6-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with the wisdom of what is righteous and the strength to walk in its path and to not deviate from it. Thank you for being so gracious as to forgive me when I stray from that path and realize it and repent You eagerly help me to regain my footing upon the Path of Righteousness. I exalt You in the name of He who is the epitimy of righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Here is the Catch

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

 “See, I am sending an angel before you to protect you on your journey and lead you safely to the place I have prepared for you. Pay close attention to him, and obey his instructions. Do not rebel against him, for he is my representative, and he will not forgive your rebellion.  But if you are careful to obey him, following all my instructions, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and I will oppose those who oppose you. Exodus 23:20-22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

It is a good feeling that those who chose to be my enemies make themselves enemies of Jehovah. BUT, here is the catch, we must be obedient unto Him.

I believe the angel referred to in this instance is the Holy Spirit. Yes He is the best guidance councillor there is.

When we rebel against Him, He withdraws His protection and guidance. Woe be to the man or woman that puts themselves in that situation. I speak from a lot of personal experience. It only leads to trouble, agony, confusion and heartache. The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent He is quick to return to us.

We ignore the Holy Spirit at our own peril. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13) – The LORD that Sanctifies me for blessing me with sending me The Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be obedient unto all of Your wise instruction. I know You give this for my own good.                                                                                     He is the most awesome Teacher. He knows how to teach me so that I will understand.                               I remorsefully apologize for the times I am a rebellious student. I know it is not possible but I would love to be perfect so that I would never hurt Your treasured heart.                                                                        I exalt You in the name of the best Teacher ever, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Believe Jesus Knew

WITNESS FOR ME

As Jesus went with him, he was surrounded by the crowds. A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding,[b] and she could find no cure.  Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped. “Who touched me?”Jesus asked. Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.” But Jesus said,“Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.”When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees in front of him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed.“Daughter,” he said to her,“your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” Luke 8:42-48 The New Living Translation.

I believe Jesus knew who touched her and why.

So, why did He ask who touched Him?

I believe it was to reveal to everyone that it was because of her faith that she was healed. It was to be a good example to those around Him that He has the power to heal and that we must believe in Him to receive this gift.

It took great faith in Jesus that He would not be angry with her for touching Him when she was unclean. When a woman was on her period she was considered unclean and was not to have contact with a man in any way. To admit she touched Him would have brought her great shame and condemnation. She did not care, she threw herself at Jesus with gratitude and trust in His love and compassion.

So too it is to be with us. Now Jesus may or may not heal your physical ailment but He most certainly will heal your mental and spiritual ones. Not only must we have faith in His loving healing touch, even if it brings a lot of mockery and condemnation from society we must also proclaim His healing to the sick world and risk suffering the same mockery and condemnation again. That is okay because Jesus’ love and healing is of far more value than society’s approval. Especially since society’s approval is very fickle while Christ love is sold and never changing. 

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka :(God our healer) for blessing me with Your awesome mental and spiritual healing only You could have healed me from.                                Thank you for the numerous opportunities to share these blessing with others in the hope that they will trust You to heal them as well.                                                                                           I praise You in the name of the best Doctor there is Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Why Would He Not?

HOPE IN THE LORD

 But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Jehovah loves you. Why would He not protect you from the evil one?

Why would He not strengthen you from the wicked one?

Come to think about it, why would He need to strengthen me from the evil one if He is going to protect me from Him? Could it be because there are some battles we are not strong enough to fight and win that that is the reason He protects us from the wicked one.

But, on the other hand sometimes we need to stand up to bullies on our own in order to grow so He will bless us with mental, spiritual and physical strength to defeat the wicked one when he comes a looking for a fight. That is why we need to depend upon Him for His discretion on which one He will bless us with and faith that He will.

Jehovah knows when to protect us and He knows when to strengthen us to always defeat our foes on our own. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Elohe Mauzi (Psalms 43:2) – GOD of My Strength for Thy unbeatable strength that protects me from the wiles of satan.                                                                                                           Thank you for blessing me with the the strength that comes from Your wisdom and encouragement to defeat satan one on one. Thank you for You Divine protection from the wiles of the wicked one when they are too great for me to handle on my own.                                                                                              I praise You in the name of He who smacked satan down hard every time they engaged in combat Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
