Why it is so Important?

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

To Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

This is why it is so important to read the Bible every day and to seek its meaning thus living by what the Holy Spirit teaches us.

First we may be going astray without even knowing it. A Bible Verse may open our eyes to our slowly, unwittingly drifting away from Christ and towards destruction.

’”Just as at sea those who are carried away from the direction of the harbor bring themselves back on course by a clear sign, so Scripture may guide those adrift on the sea of life back into the harbor of the divine will.” — St. Gregory of Nyssa

Second, memorizing Bible Verses and their meaning helps us guide others back on course when we see them going astray. We respectfully talk with them about it. By Gods grace we shall guide them back to the path that leads to Heavens Gate.

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth) for blessing me with the ultimate book of knowledge (The Holy Bible) to guide me along the path to Heaven You have chosen for me to travel. I pray that they are branded into my being so as to draw them like a razor sharp sword to defeat the enemy (Satan and his minions) when they attack me. I exalt You in the name of the greatest swordsman of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Good That Goes with Bad.

 The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will put their trust in You. For You, O Lord, have never left alone those who look for You. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is always good that goes with bad.

Look at the virus that is snaking around the world right now. Yes it is causing a lot of sickness and death. But, it is also contributing to a lot of good.

Look at how many families are spending time together like they did forty years ago.

Look at how folks are looking out for each other in their communities.

Look at how folks are coming together in creative ways in their church to keep together.

Look at how many folks are having time to read their Bibles, for some, maybe the first time in their life.

Look at how many folks are taking walks on nature trails which is good for their mental, physical and spiritual health.

And, most important of all is look at how many folks are spending quality time with Jehovah, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

It is in the difficult times we come the closest to Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for walking with me through these difficult times.                                                                                                                            May you use me to encourage others and help others under Your guidence as You have helped and encouraged me.                                                                                                                                                I apologize that it took at catastrophe like this for me to come and spend time with You.                             I thank you in the name of He who always fulfills His promise to never leave me nor desert me, Jesus Christ. Amen         

    JEHOVAHS CARE                                                                                                                                                                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.

You can Make

 You can make many plans,   but the Lords purpose will prevail. Proverbs 19:21 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

Boy do I know this to be true.

In my early twenties I planned on living in a log cabin by a spring fed spring with great trout fishing in central Ontario on two acres of forested land. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

When doing medical missionary work in the Baja Mexico I met a Mexican woman and we fell in love. We intended upon getting married and buying a small house in the little town we were living in. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

While attending a Chinese church while doing missionary work (even though I was teaching English I was also teaching about Jesus to my students) I met a wonderful Christian Chinese woman. We fell in love. I intended upon becoming a landed immigrant and we were going to get married and buy an apartment (they do not have houses but apartments for the most part in China). Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day. The same thing happened in two different cites I taught at.

Each of these events ripped my heart apart as my dreams vanished like waking from a dream. I felt crushed and as if my life was over. I was angry at Jehovah for allowing this.

Now, in my elder years, I can see His plans for me were very different than mine were.

Yes I still love those women and have fond memories of those times but am grateful for Jehovah for the plans He had for me. I firmly believe I shall meet those women I loved so dearly in Heavens home. If those events had of come to fruition I would never have served Him in the capacity He had intended and accomplished the tasks He had prepared for me to accomplish for Him. Because of this many would not have come to Jesus. I am grateful for this blessing He gave me through my obedience to Him.

We make our plans but Jehovah guides the way (even if it is in the opposite direction then we intend to go). Joseph a son of Jehovah

PATH

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide for always providing providence in my life to humble, loyally serve You. This is the greatest of honours of all. I thank you in the name of my Heavenly King which is my greatest delight to serve, 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

We are Still Stewards

 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. Genesis 2:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Now, even though we are not in the Garden of Eden we are still stewards of Jehovahs creation.

One day early this spring while riding my bicycle down a country road the Lord guided my attention to how filthy the side of the road was and reminded me that as a Christian I am a caretaker of Jehovahs creation. He inspired me to go midweek with some garbage bags and start to clean up all the rubbish on the side of the road. It was incredible the amount that was collected in a short distance. I made a commitment to return one day a week and continue down the road until it was all cleaned up.

You must not defile the land where you live, for I live there myself. I am the Lord, who lives among the people of Israel.” Numbers 35:34 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

After about a month, it rained out on the scheduled clean up day. A couple of days later when riding down the road to get some supplies for our garden the Lord directed my attention to the side of the road. It was spotless. That means someone or group noticed the work done, how it looked good and how bad the uncleaned part looked. They took the initiative and cleaned it up.

Many times we can lead by example in life with out even realizing it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

LEADERSHIP

You yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Titus 2:7 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28) The LORD Creator for blessing me with helpers to restore some of Your creation to the beauty You created to be. I exalt You in the name of He who will restore all of creation to its original beauty upon His victorious return Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What is Wisdom?

To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. 1 Corinthians 12:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into practice.     

Where do we receive the best knowledge?     

From the tutorship of the Holy Spirit.     

voice of god                        

Our life here and now will determine where we spend our next life in eternity, and yes, there is an eternal life after this one. Therefore we should live it wisely. Invest your time in Jehovahs Heavenly Kingdom and your place with in it.                                               

Folks invest their money and time for a comfortable retirement while on this earth, how much do they invest in their eternal home?               

No, it will not be a retirement home. Jesus has work for us that will be enjoyable.                     

Live each moment as if the next you were to meet Jesus because you never know when that moment will arrive Joseph a son of Jehovah               

Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die. Anonymous This is the mantra of the fool that dams them into Hell. Please do not be so unwise as to live this destructive manner of life.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit help me live a life that will please my loving Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6. I look forward to the day when we can share a huge hug and I hear Him say to me:”Well done good and faithful servant.” I look forward to spending an eternity with the one I worship above all others. Please bless me with the opportunity to share this wonderful relationship with others so they may join in this royal family. I thank you and humbly ask this in the name of my adoring King, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Why do You?

 We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but he is ready to hear those who worship him and do his will. John 9:31 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

If you desire for your prayer to be answered you must be wholly devoted unto Jehovah. You must devote your mind, body and spirit to Him.

There is no Christian with one foot in Heaven while the other foot is in Hell that can expect Jehovah to answer their prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There is no wanting to fly like an angel while swimming with the pigs in the cesspool of sin. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why do you gorge yourself on fleshly desires and expect Jehovah to bless you with more valuable spiritual blessings?

Why do you expect Jehovah to deliver you from sorrows, worry and or pain when you are dancing with the devil?

Just as you cannot be a bird and be a fish at the same time, neither can you be a child of Jehovah while befriending the devil. You cannot expect a gift from Jehovah if you are carousing with the devil.

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

If you sincerely want your prayers to be answered get away from the prince of darkness and begin walking with the King of Light. Joseph a son of Jehovah

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Tsebaoth (Psalms 59:5, Isaiah 28:22) LORD GOD of Hosts for blessing me with being a member of the holy host of saints and angels that worship You both now and for eternity. I praise You in the name of who I look forward to worship in person in our Heavenly home 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
