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.

Me First Puts You Last.

SATANS TRAP

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.                                                                                      You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up James 4:1-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Is it not true, this is what causes so many fights today, the feeling that you are the center of the universe? Because of this, you feel no qualms about stepping all over everybody else because you think you are better than anyone else. You refuse to see anyone else’s point of view. You are rude because again, you think you are the center of the universe. Maybe you are to momma and or granma, but not to the rest of us. Grow up and be a man or woman. Learn to respect others.

How about your relationship with God?

In your communion with Him do you have the gimme, gimme attitude?

Are your prayers centered around yourself? Then you cry baby because God does not give you everything you demand.

So many times I have encountered people who say they don’t believe in God (I say they say they don’t believe in God because I believe we all deep down we all know He exists. Many just refuse to accept Him because He will not give them their every desire like spoiled children and because they are haughty and refuse to submit to anyone). When I ask them why, they reply that it is because He has not answered their prayers. When asked what their prayers are they are always self centered.

Of course God will not answer those prayers (Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Gods help or guidance. That is what He wants us to do.).

My prayer is: Not my will but Thy will be done my God. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do. May my words and actions bring glory and praise to You and may they lead the lost little sheep to You.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now what is friendship with the world?

I believe it is self seeking pleasures, whether it be booze, drugs, sex or commercialism. Again, it’s all about you.

That is the life of a loser. Their life is left with a void that they do not understand why. The reason is because they do not have the heart of a servant of the most regal of kings, Jesus Christ.

The happiest people I have ever met are also the humblest.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary

I love being humble and yes most days I am very joyful (Happiness depends upon physical stimulation, joyfulness depends upon Jehovahs love beating in your heart).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy as I nurture our loving relationship which is the most joyful experience there is. I applaud You in the name of He who brings the light of joy to my heart Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

One Whose Heart Breaks

REPENT OR ELSE

When I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent. I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Selichot (God Of Forgiveness) for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness. Please bless my heart to be as forgiving unto the repentant as You are towards me when I repent. I sincerely give thanks and request this in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Be Thankful

In every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I desired to make raised flower beds for my aged mother who can no longer bend over to work in her flower beds and she loves her flower beds and working in them. I wanted ten skids and my friend suggested he could get a truck and we could pick them up the next day, but because the truck he wanted to borrow was not available he phoned and informed me we could only get three.

There was disappointment and anger in my heart because we agreed upon ten.

After talking with Jehovah became I became grateful for what was given and for my friends help and waited for him to come pick me up the next day to get the skids.

The friend showed up with five skids in the back of his SUV the next afternoon. When we went to the place where the skids were supposed to be they were all gone. He drove to the place where he saw the skids on the side of the road during his morning walk and we got five more.

Because of that the raised garden could be made ( even though it was not as big as I wanted. I wanted to build a pyramid raised garden but the skids were too small).

As well there was enough skids to use as the base to make another bigger raised garden using a discarded dresser drawer. Another blessing was Jehovah giving me an idea on how to make more raised gardens as a border for our flower beds using materials around the house that I never thought of.

As a consequence there was not a need for so many skids.

When we desire something but Jehovah does not give us what we want but are to still be appreciative. Then Jehovah multiplies His blessings upon us.

A faithful (right-minded) man will abound with blessings. Proverbs 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing for me the material necessary to build a monument of love towards Your cherished daughter, my mother and for the brother who graciously helped me. I thank You in the name of He who was grateful for the blessings of the disciples You sent unto Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Walk in Union with Him.

 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in [union with] Him [reflecting His character in the things you do and say—living lives that lead others away from sin]. Colossians 2:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How are we supposed to walk in union with Christ?

The first step is to pray for revelation with a sincere heart so we may be blessed with Holy communion with Him.

The second step is to read our Bible, read Christian literature and listen to Christian teachers as they expound upon Christs character and the Holy Spirits transformation of us into union with His Divine character.

This is a life time exercise that must become second nature to us in every aspect of our daily lives.

The more obedient we are to the Holy Spirits guidance the more He resides within us.

“True religion is a union of God with the soul, a real participation of the divine nature, the very image of God drawn upon the soul, or in the apostle’s phrase, it is Christ formed in us.” Henry Scougal

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with the most incredible friendship possible. I cherish every moment we spend together. I praise You in the name of my best friend with whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Grandmas Sweater.

 But the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will certainly buy it from you for a price. I will not offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God which cost me nothing.” So David purchased the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. 2 Samuel 24:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

David paid for this because He wanted Jehovah to know it was a personal gift unto Him as a present of love, respect and gratefulness.

The best Christmas present I received every year was grandams sweater. It took her many months to knit it and it always felt of her love. Mom would have to fight with me to get it off of me to wash it.

Think of how cherished your gift is to Jehovah when it took a lot of time and effort to make it and freely offer it to Him as an act of love unto Him.

Do you insult Jehovah by giving Him something that cost you nothing or something cheap like you would buy in a Dollar Store?

For a church supper do you go out and buy something cheap at the grocery store instead of taking the time and effort into making a home made meal? This is a gathering of His people to commune with each other and Him. That is a cheap gift. That is an insult to Him.

And when you present the lame and the sick, is it not evil? Offer such a thing [as a blind or lame or sick animal] to your governor [as a gift or as payment for your taxes]. Would he be pleased with you? Or would he receive you graciously?” says the Lord of hosts. Malachi 1:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you give unto Jehovah from your heart that is more precious to Him than the most expensive gift given out of obligation. A gift from the heart is the most precious gift. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me so generously and with the best. Please always guide me to give nothing less back to You as a gift of love and appreciation every day. I thank You in the name of He who gave His precious blood unto me as the price of adoption unto Your magnificent family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Love to Have Intercourse with God.

i-love-you-my-lord

  As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Psalms 42 Holy Bible New International Version

Having intercourse means to enjoy a relationship with Him ( no not just sexual but in conversation as well. ).

Think of a marriage, if the couple only have intercourse in courting and then say :Well we had intercourse before marriage we do not require any more in our relationship. “ is that relationship not doomed? Think of how you were always calling , texting and desiring to spend time together in courtship. If there is none of that in the marriage that is not a marriage but a life sentence.

If a child says I had intercourse with you when I was born, I no longer require intercourse with you is that not abusive? What kind of family life is that?

So too it is with us.

We need daily intercourse with our Beloved if we desire for our relationship to grow. Just as a thirsty deer pants for cool life giving refreshing water so too are we to pant for Jehovahs sweet love in our daily lives. We must have a deep desire for a daily meeting with Him.

If you have no desire to enjoy and nurture a relationship with Christ , you are not a Christian. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the honoured privilege of sharing Divine intercourse with You. It is truly one of my most treasured gifts You have blessed me with. I humbly and joyously thank You in the name of my best friend with whom is always there to share treasured time with Jesus Christ. Amen

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