Makes Christ Look Good.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

But I say to you, do not resist an evil person [who insults you or violates your rights]; but whoever slaps you on the right cheek, turn the other toward him also [simply ignore insignificant insults or trivial losses and do not bother to retaliate—maintain your dignity, your self-respect, your poise]. Matthew 5:39 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To publicly slap someone on the cheek in Jesus’ day was a supreme act of insult. To do it backhanded was a double insult.

So when Jesus is telling you to turn the other cheek He is telling you that when someone insults you to not take it personally and hurl one back at them.

This makes perfect sense.

There are wolves that prowl around looking for a fight. When you ignore their insults you are refusing to take their bait and thereby avoiding a fight. As a consequence they look the fool while you look gentlemanly or lady like.

This is a good reflection of Christ.

Turning the other cheek makes Christ look good and the offender look stupid. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with the strength to turn the other cheek when slapped so as to glorify You and to prevent words coming from my moth for which I shall surely regret later. I humbly request this in the name of He who never spoke when slapped at His unfair trial Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Most Important Ministry is That Of

pray for each other

 “Hear my prayer, O Lord, and listen to my cry; Do not be silent at my tears” Psalm 39:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some folks use the out that they are now made for service whether as a missionary, teacher or any capacity with in the church.

Nice try.

One of the most important ministry is that of prayer. It only needs to be heart felt and sincere. You do not need go to any seminary to learn it. You need no special equipment (except a quiet room, and sincere heart).

Go on web sites like: https://joyfmradio.net/make-a-request/submit-a-prayer-request, https://www.praise1065.com/prayer-requests/, http://prayer-center.upperroom.org/prayer-wall, http://nationalprayerbank.com/Pages/Pray-For-Others/ to name just a few.

A good line of thought though is to find someone who is going through the same situation (and we all have our problems). Write their name down on a piece of paper and what the problems is.

Then, include them in your morning prayers. Have no more than five (you do not want to spend the day on your knees). It would be an excellent form of ministry for brothers and sisters to participate in that are living in seniors homes.

Prayer is a hidden ministry that brings forth fruit through which the Father is glorified.”Oswald Chambers

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with an appropriate list of brothers and sisters to pray for to encourage them, comfort them and strengthen them in a minute way compared to You. I exalt You in the name of He who prayed for others even though He knew what was awaiting Him during his trial and execution Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Will Find You Out.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

You will have sinned against the Lord; and be sure that your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is very prevalent today for folks to think they can do whatever they want with no repercussions. That is a fools dream.

On every computer there is a small camera at the top. Any good hack can turn it on and film you without your knowledge (which is why I put a piece of gum over mine. Not that I am doing anything wrong but rather I cherish my privacy). Of course the hacks cannot do this if your computer is turned off.

However, you cannot turn off the eyes of Jehovah.

He sees your wickedness and warns you to repent.

If you arrogantly refuse then He will bring His righteous hammer down hard on you.

Most times the evil you have perpetrated in solitude will be brought out in the public eye and that will increase your shame.

You cannot hide anything from Jehovah. He is waiting for you to repent. But if you refuse, look out. You will pay severely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees ) bless me with the constant presence of the Holy Spirit to guide my words and actions because I love You too much to ever want to hurt You with them or make You ashamed of me for saying or doing them. I humbly request this in the name of He who always carefully chose His words and actions to always bring glory to You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Also Need to be Continuously Expanding

FOLLOWING CHRIST

  O Lord, truly I am Your servant. Psalm 116:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are some that meditate upon the meaning of life while contributing nothing to it. What a waste of life.

There are those who are so concerned about the here and now that they think nothing about eternity. What a meaningless life.

Both are wrong.

Yes we are to be working and planning for this life in harmony with Jehovahs will.

However, we also need to be continuously expanding and growing in our spiritual development at the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This will ultimately lead us from becoming earthly servants of our Beloved King, Jesus to being His spiritual Heavenly servants in the home Jehovah has prepared for us.

In the Christian life we must not neglect the visible , yet the invisible must be supremely regarded. In other words we are to be studious unto our earthly duties, like working to support ourselves while studiously being good servants to our Divine Heavenly King. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) bless me to concentrate upon the appropriate things in the appropriate manner and in the appropriate time so as to not devote too much time to one or the other. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked in perfect harmony when I He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Those Who Represent The.

HEAVENLY STRENGTH

 Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you. Luke 10:19,20   Holy Bible Amplified Version               

I do not believe Christ is referring to the creature but to those who represent the creatures.

So for example, the serpent represents satan while the scorpions represent those whose tongues and hands represent wicked ones out to do you harm.

The harm mentioned is not referring to physical harm but rather spiritual harm. They are out to poison your relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

The wicked ones are out to kill your love for them.

The authority is given by Christ in His name and the power comes through the Holy Spirit.

Because Jesus is the Supreme Power satan and his minions do not have the power to harm us (they can tempt us but never physically, mentally, nor spiritually harm us).

They are constantly around us which is why it is so important to stay close to Christ.

If we stray away from Jesus we are easy pickings for satan and his henchmen. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing this dedicated servant of Your with the necessary tools to defend myself successfully against the serpents and scorpions that come my way through the day. I glorify You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

The Highlands of Affliction.

CHRISTS STRENGTH

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version  

Those who say that being a Christian is easy are definitely not a Christian.

Being a Christian means a lifetime of suffering. We will be rejected, mocked and be going through constant trials and tribulations.

This is good because it makes us dependent upon Jehovah which draws us ever closer unto Him.

As well, it strengthens our Christian walk.

It is also good because when we encounter hurting folks we can share with them the amazing things Jehovah has done through our tough times.

The other benefit is that we will not desire for this world but rather for the home in which our Heavenly Father has prepared for us.

“The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to make through the tough times and for using those tough times to strengthen Your loving child and well as the life changing lessons learned through these fiery times. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered the worst affliction for me 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.

It Changes Me.

CONTINUAL CONVERSATION

  Rejoice always and delight in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; 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 5:16-18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being persistent means to make it a habit.

Make it a habit to commune with our Beloved first thing in the morning.

Make it a habit to commune with Him through out the day.

Make it a habit to commune with Him before bed.

Make Him your choicest companion in which you share all of your hurts and dreams. Share with Him in your victory and defeats.

In each of these thank Jehovah. Thank Him that He listens to you.

Thank Him that He cares about you.

Thank Him that He always wants what is best for you (this is especially important in our defeats and when His answer for our dreams are not answered in the way in which we desire).

Have faith in His providence that He only wants what is best for you even when it does not seem like it to you.

Prayer does not change things but rather it changes me. Sincere prayer opens us up to Holy communion with our Beloved Father in Heaven. As we commune with Him our prayers are less self centred (gimme, gimme, gimme) and more Christ centred (Lord I desire to be like You.) and more personal, like a conversation between two loving friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me the proper manner in which to converse with You and to make it the most joyful habit I have. I Your wonderful name I pray. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.
