They Know His Law

 Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it. They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. Romans 2:14-15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is no such thing as an atheist. It is not that they do not believe in Jesus but rather because of selfishness, they reject Him. After all, where do you think the Gods Law comes from in every culture?

Gods Law states that we are to do unto others as we want them to do unto us. Do not do unto others as we do not want them to do to us. Every culture and every country has this law.

Even if they seem to be getting away with breaking these laws ( and they do not because Jesus is a God of Justice, they will be punished. If not here on earth, most certainly in Hell for eternity. ) their conscience convicts them of it.

No one can or ever will escape Jesus’ true justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The next time you meet a so called atheist why not have a conversation asking them to explain this to you. Make sure you are both obeying Gods Law (it is also called Common Law) by being respectful with each other.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) for blessing me with the knowledge of Your supreme law and the way to obey it.  Please bless me with the opportunity to teach others in a way that the will respect You and obey Your Laws as well. I meekly request this in the name of my Savior whose blood made this all possible, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is So Important

Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Psalm 51:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

With all the filth constantly around us every day in TV, movies, radio, and society at large we need to have constant reconstructive surgery every day.

We need the Holy Spirit to renew our spirits unto Christ while washing away the filth of the world.

That is why it is so important every day to spend quiet time alone with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. They will purge the filth and replace it with Divine love, wisdom and strength.

The Holy Spirit gives us the best bath we could ever have. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi (Psalms 91:9 The LORD My Refuge ) for being my refuge in this dark world. I delight in spending time in Your oasis in this filthy world. It is the sweetest refuge of all. I thank you in the name of He with whom I love to take quiet refuse with every day, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Have Learned the Hard Way

 O Lord, oppose those who oppose me. Fight those who fight against me. Psalm 35:1 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is the Lords reply: The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

And, may I add, to be patient.

I have learned the hard way that when I go into battle against any foe they have the devil to help them draw up battle plans that will not only defeat me but to humiliate me as well.

When I humbly request the mighty Warrior Kings (Jesus Christ) assistance, He will always bring victory to me.

One way He does this is for me to step back and allow Him to bring humiliating defeat to the wicked.

Another manner in which He brings victory is by working in conjunction with me or by bringing other more experienced Christian warriors to aid me in the battle.

And finally, the other manner in which He brings victory to me is by giving me the battle plans and allowing me to fight the battle myself (which helps me become a more mature Christian so I can help other brothers and sisters when they face the same battle).

In every one of these battles the main ingredient for success is faith (which means trust) in His deliverance.

These battles are not only against flesh and blood opponents but against satan and his minions as well.

Faith is the greatest battle weapon at every Christians disposal. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not fear them, for it is the Lord your God who is fighting for you.’ Deuteronomy 3:22 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Maginnenu (Psalms 89:18 The LORD Our Defense) for blessing me with Your unconquerable defense when the wicked one attack me. Thank you that Your battle plans always bring victory. I praise You in the name of He who slam dunked satan Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This is the Secret

 Let all that I am praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath. Psalm 146:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

This is the secret to having joy in your life, singing praises to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit at every opportunity through out the day.

Try this: thank Him before eating a meal (believe me, you go live in a third world country and you will see how good you have it).

Thank Him for giving you a place to live, I have seen many that live in one room as a family with no indoor heating or cooling.

Thank Him for the water you drink, I have seen many that live off of three liters of water for cooking, cleaning and drinking, try that some time.

Thank Him for living in a secure place, I have lived where it was common in the morning walk to see dead folks laying the street.

Thank Him for the air you breathe. I have lived in places where old folks drop to the ground and choke to death off of the polluted air.

Most importantly, thank Him for blessing you with the greatest blessing of all, a loving relationship with Them and for them caring for you and caring about you. Then, you will find your life filled with joy no matter what your circumstances are.

A grateful heart is a joyful heart. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with Divine exhilarating joy that can only be gained by being in communion with You. It is the most special treasure there could ever be. I praise You in the name of He with whom I experience the greatest joy being with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Like to Do It Incognito

 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:1-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

The other day while walking down the hallway after visiting a friend in the hospital I noticed little plaques on the wall with names of folks who donated to the hospital. The bigger the donation, the bigger the plaque.

It was the same in a church I recently dropped off clothing to give to others for free. I could not help but think that although these were generous gifts they were given out of excess and were given to puff up the ego of the giver.

How many of the parishioners gave out of their meager wages denying themselves for the good of the church or hospital?

To me, these are the real generous givers.

It is the same when I watch folks running for a cause like cancer.

How many of them are running with selfie sticks?

Are they running for the cause of a cure for cancer or for the cause of puffing up themselves?

When I give, I like to do it incognito, because of the disdain for being applauded for it in public. Instead I always give thanks to Jehovah for the idea to give to that specif cause and for the opportunity to do so with great joy.

Give but give with the object of giving glory to Jehovah not to self. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for guiding where to give and how much to give to those who You deem worthy. Doing so creates a heart that beats with ecstatic joy in helping while giving glory to You magnificent name.                                       I praise You in the name of He who gave the ultimate sacrifice for me 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. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   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

Have you been there yet?

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

I want to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferingPhilippians 3:10  The Holy Bible, The New Transaltion Version

Have you been there yet?

You know, have you walked through the valley of Hell. A place of fire and torment.

I have. It was during a toxic relationship. The person was terribly abusive, mean spirited,selfish and cruel. I stayed believing I could help this person. Of course they must want to resolve their issues and take action themselves. This person did not want to change their behavior. Finally I walked away.

Then, came another time of hell, the time of recovering from the abuse. I kept on calling out to God, but He was silent.

Thankfully God did direct me to the resources needed to recover. It took a year.

Through that time I developed a very deep and personal relationship with God. There was no other way for this relationship to exist except my going through the hell first to get rid of the toxic relationship that put a chasm between us.

In time the wounds were healed and my spirit resurrected into the family of Christ.

If you are going through the fire right now perhaps it in necessary to burn off bad habits or beliefs.

My trying to serve this abusive person prevented me from serving God. So, He just stepped back and allowed the abusive person to do their worst (a boy did they do a job on me) to burn off my feeling of obligation to them. Once the relationship ended, then came the healing.

Through the healing came a deep love for and respect for God.

So too is it possible for you.

If you are going through that hell, whether it be an addiction or toxic relationship or health or financial problems perhaps it is because you need to have something burned off that restricts you from your relationship with God.

Yes definitely get help.

I am so happy I did.

They helped open my eyes to a lot of things that has helped me ever since. At the completion of this time your spirit will be resurrected into a close relationship with God.

Believe me it hurts God too to have to step back and watch you go through this, but it is necessary.

Even though it hurts our Beloved to watch, He does step back and allow us to go through Hell to get us into Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) Judges 6:12 for blessing me with walking through my time of torment and agony. Thank you for healing me when You finally had enough and guided me away from the tormentor. I would never had made it without You. With my deepest gratitude I thank you in the name of the greatest Healer of all, 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

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
