I Am in Thy Presence.

 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah is the best guidance Councillor there is.

He should be, He made us for a specific purpose and the wise follow the path of life He has predestined for them to walk. As we obey His choices for us we experience a oneness with Him which blesses us with a Divine joy which nothing can compare with.

The pleasures are communion with Him and seeing the fruit of our Divine labor. The ultimate pleasure is being blessed with communion with Him in eternity forevermore.

“Help me, Lord, to remember that religion is not to be confined to the church… nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that every where I am in Thy Presence.” Susanna Wesley

Prayer: Oh how I exalt Thee Jehovah Pryyand God is my best friend, my most cherished love for the privilege of sharing loving moments with You. They are the most treasured time of my life. I extol Thee in the name of my best friend with whom I cherish every moment we are together Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Wicked Always Oppose.

For every wrongdoer hates the Light John 3:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe the reason the liberals attack Christians so vehemently is because we live the truth are walking in the light of Christ and they hate it because it exposes their wickedness which is walking in darkness. Our lives are the living Gospel and they hate us because it convicts them of their wickedness. 

The Gospel cannot be truly preached without offense and tumult.” Martin Luther

It is also the reason the wolves amongst Christs flock hate and persecute those that are walking in Christs light.

A sure sign of whether you are walking in the light is the way others behave around you. Can they not say your name without spitting, do they viciously gossip about you, do they do everything they can to make your life miserable? I find that the most true when it is family.

The wicked always oppose those who are doing what is right. They are afraid of them and cruelly mock them. Indeed, if they could they would even kill them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So if you are being treated like dung do not have a pity party or cry out to Christ to deliver you from the abuse. Rather rejoice in it as it is a sure sign that you are walking close with the Heavenly Light.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength and wisdom to with stand the vicious attacks by the wicked ones. It is indeed an honour my King to be hated for walking in righteousness just as You were. I praise You in the name of He who was crucified by the wicked because of their hatred for Him which brought about my salvation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Wants to Show Himself.

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

This does not occur naturally to us, especially the older we get. In our walk with Jehovah trust will not happen the instant we become Christians and I do not believe we will ever completely trust Him until we get to Heaven. The more we trust Him, the more experiences

He will present unto us to challenge us to grow stronger in our faith in Him.

Even when we do not have faith in Him, He will show Himself to be faithful unto us.

We will feel shame because of our lack of faith but even in our failures they will be used to strengthen our faith in Him.

I know in my decades long walk with Him my faith in Him grows stronger and stronger but, sometimes a crisis occurs and even though I have faith in Him there is still some worry in my heart.

Faith is also spiritual so as long as you are looking for Jehovah in your physical life ( like always whining to Him gimme gimme gimme like He is a genie in a bottle or you only call upon Him in a catastrophe) you will never attain strong faith in Him.

“God doesn’t want us to know that He is faithful just because the Bible says so, but He wants to show Himself faithful in our lives.” Robert Ekh

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand God is my friend, for blessing me with a true friend that always guides me and stands beside me in every step of my walk with You. Please bless me with more and stronger faith in Your guidance upon the path we walk, especially when I cannot see where You are guiding me. I exalt You in the name of my best friend with whom I cherish walking with every day Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He was Disgusting to Society

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a shepherd in Davids time he was disgusting to them. Shepherds were dirty, smelly and uncouth. But, Jehovah saw what was in his heart.

The same is true in us. You do not need to be a supermodel, wear all the latest designer clothes, attend a premier college or university or have a fat wallet to be used by Jehovah. It is your heart He is looking for.

When I was young I was poor, very shy and constantly sick. Those that knew me then would never have believed the manner in which Christ used me and the incredible transformation He has accomplished in me.

The same is true for everyone, including you.

It does not matter your appearance, your social graces, your intelligence or any other factor in your life. When your heart is receptive unto Christ He joyously embraces you into His Divine family.

The only requirement to be of service unto Christ our King is an obedient, receptive heart. Give Him that and watch the amazing things He does in your life and through your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not reject the worst sinners like drunks or drug addicts as unworthy to become Jehovahs children because it is the worst sinners who make the best saints. This is because they appreciate the Hell the Holy Spirit has delivered them from.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying a wicked sinner like me into Your Holy family.

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

Nobody Would Now be Saying.

 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words]. Matthew 28:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our savior that does not mean we are to sit on our hands doing nothing but waiting for Him to take us to Heaven.

Just as He is our Savior so too is He our King.

If He is our King then that makes us His free will servants. As servants the King has assignments for us.

The number one assignment is to bring others into His Holy family.

We accomplish this by living the Christian life every where we are. When others who are open to listening see this they will come unto us not we go out unto them (that is why the Jehovah’s Witnesses and other cults are wrong to harass folks by knocking on our doors). Then we can share the gospel with others and bring them into His Holy family.

We do this everywhere, at school or work, when shopping, in our leisure activities and any other place we are. We are also to make the commitment to helping them in their Christian walk by having Bible studies with them and giving them testimony of what Christ has done in our lives and through our lives.

“If Christians had ever been brave enough to make Christ alive, nobody would now be saying that Christianity is dead.” — Winifred Kirkland

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) bless me to always live a life and talk the talk to show others that You are alive, active and ever present in my life so that they may be brought unto You Holy family. I humbly ask this in the name of the liveliest Eternal King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You had Better Listen.

 

I have also spoken to [you through] the prophets, And I gave [them] many visions [to make My will known], And through the prophets I gave parables [to appeal to your sense of right and wrong]. Hosea 12:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah speaks to us even today through visions, dreams, teachers, by being in nature and seeing His glory, by reading His Holy Book (the Bible) and of course by a soft whisper. He is trying to guide your life, He is trying to correct you when you are going astray and doing wicked things.

Beware. His patience only lasts for so long.

“So when you spread out your hands [in prayer, pleading for My help], I will hide My eyes from you which is the same as saying He will turn His back on you because you turned your back on Him). Isaiah 1:15 Holy Bible Amplified Version

No.

He will not do bad things unto you, that is not possible. Because He is good, how can He do anything wicked?

Rather because you refuse to listen to Him ,He will turn His back on you and refuse to listen to you and you will be easy pickings for the devil and his minions as well as your own faulty thinking and surrendering to fleshly desires.

The consequences of this is disastrous. The disaster will not happen in day or a week ( although it may). Most times it is like a small pebble that starts an avalanche. The pebble is small but as it continues down hill it picks up speed and energy. It becomes unstoppable and destructive. So too it is in the lives of the wicked. It starts out small and as time goes on it continues to grow in strength and speed until a disastrous end for the evil ends in Hell.

I have seen it with my own eyes with family and associates over the years.

Jehovah is speaking, are you listening? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your Divine words of love, comfort, strength and wisdom. May I always be attentive, understand what You say and be obedient unto them. I know You share Your Divine wisdom in every aspect of my life for my own good. You are such a truly wonderful Councillor. I exalt You in the name of the most Wonderful Councillor Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They are Calling Jehovah Wicked.

Differing weights [one for buying and another for selling] and differing measures, Both of them are detestable and offensive to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable and offensive [to the Lord]. How much more [unacceptable and insulting can it be] when he brings it with evil intention? Proverbs 21:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Detestable means arousing or meriting intense dislike in the dictionary.

So many times I hear preachers and others say that the thing we hate the most is the thing in which we ourselves do as well.

In the Christian perspective they are dead wrong.

As you can see from these verses Jehovah hates these things so if , by their reasoning, Jehovah hates these things that must mean He practices these things. That means He is not Holy and prefect.

The more in love you are with another the more your disposition becomes like them and you desire to emulate them. Watch a child try to emulate their father or mother for proof.

It only stands to reason then that what Jehovah hates we hate.

I hate liars, the proud, the thieves, the instigators and mean spirited.

That does not mean I want to kill them, indeed it brings great sorrow to see their lifestyle because it only brings them depression, loneliness, sorrow and pain but that does not mean I excuse it nor tolerate it. When I try to teach them about Christ and they turn their back on Him (it is Christ they are rejecting not you) that is an insult and I turn my back on them. It is a sad thing to do but it is necessary because they are a waste of time and energy.

I pray Jehovah leads me to receptive ones and move on.

These six things the Lord hates; Indeed, seven are repulsive to Him: A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that creates wicked plans, Feet that run swiftly to evil, A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths], And one who spreads discord (rumours) among brothers. Proverbs 6:16-19The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is also a misconception that Jehovah hates the sin but loves the sinner.

That is a flat out lie.

He hates the wicked that refuse to follow His guidance and openly rebel against Him with a holy hate.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me to hate what You hate in a holy manner so as to not allow what is wicked to be tolerated nor welcome in my life. I sincerely request this in the name of the Holy of Holies whom shall judge and reward the wicked according to their evil deeds Jesus Christ. Amen.

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