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

I was Convicted

delightful panoramic water dance

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Recently I was convicted while reading a morning devotional. The Holy Spirit convicted me that the words of my mouth did not match the meditation of my heart. Someone was terribly abusive to me and I said some very unchristian words in anger and frustration (the abuser did not care that her actions caused me great physical pain).

I promptly repented and even though she is still abusive my meditations with my Beloved are in love again.

It does not matter how much anyone is physically and or mentally abusive to me. All that matters is my loving obedient relationship with my Heavenly Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always keep my focus on our loving relationship no matter how abusive those around me are. It is the anchor that hows me close to You in those horrible storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who calmed the violent storm on the seas for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Happens to All of Us

GUARD YOUR INPUT

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

It happens to all of us.

There are folks that abuse us at some point in our lives.

Some repent and some do not.

Irregardless, the wound cuts deep and there is bitterness in our hearts. If we are not careful the root will grow deep like a dandelion root. It will poison our spiritual life, our mental life and our physical life until it destroys us. The root grows too deep for us to rip it out. We need to call upon the Master Gardener for that.

His name is Jesus and you can call Him anytime at P.R.A.Y.

Do not think this will be a one time call. Sometimes the seed comes back and we need to call the Master Gardener again. Sometimes those weeds will never be completely eradicated until we reach the Gates of Heavens home for us.

Jesus is the Master Gardener. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka :God our healer, for blessing me with Your Divine healing. Some of the wounds were deep and infested my soul for decades. The only way healing occurred was to place the infection at Your feet and trust in Your gracious healing. I thank you in the name of the grand Healer Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Upon All Who Love Our

goodness-is

 May God’s grace be eternally upon all who love our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 6:24 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Grace is defined as love and mercy.

Yes it is an exclusive offer. It is only available to members.

Who are those members?

Those members are those who are Christs servants.

Why would Jehovah bless someone with love that hates both Him and His children?

Why would Jehovah show mercy to those who brutalize, murder and abuse His children?

No, they are not free to indulge in this gift. Their gift is Jehovahs terrible justice.

Now, just as Jehovah blesses us with mercy we are to be merciful to those who are repentant. We need Jehovahs guidance to me merciful to those He deems worthy of mercy.

Just as Jehovah showers us with love we are to emulate Him and shower those with love that He guides us to be loving with. Our knowledge and intuition is limited and faulty. That is why we require His guidance to those He deems worthy.

“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.” Jackie Windspear

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for revealing to me the mystery of how to live a graceful life. It is a wonderful life to live. I exalt You in the name of the most graceful of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Yes, There are Conditions.

WE MUST LET GO

 The Lord is good to those who depend on him  to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord. Lamentations 3: 25-26 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Yes, there are conditions.

Many believe Jehovah freely gives His blessings to everyone.

That is a lie.

Why would He give His blessings to anyone who rejects Him?                         

Why would He give His blessings to any who abuse and or murder His cherished children?

Why would He give His blessings to those who stubbornly refuse to obey Him?  

When a woman gets pregnant today, will she give birth tomorrow?         

 Than we need to have patience and faith in our Heavenly Father that when He says He will do it, it will be done. But, it will be done in His time, in His manner, not ours.

Patience is a virtue which can only be received by the Holy Spirit to those who walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with your opening of Heavens treasure to share with us Your adoring children. Please bless me with patience as I await Your cherished gifts to me in Your way and in Your time. I exalt You in the name of the most precious gift You have shared with me 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.

Will Cure More Sins Than

 The Lord is like a father to his children,  tender and compassionate to those who fear him. Psalm 103:13 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

You get more with the carrot than the stick. It is better to encourage someone than to tear them down and be a constant fault finder with them. I had far more success using this method as a teacher than any other.

When you are a constant fault finder, folks tend to lose ambition to improve. That makes them easy to control which is satanic.

Jehovah is very patient and compassionate (which means He is sympathetic towards our weaknesses and helps us overcome them) with us. Should we not be the same with others?

That does not mean we are to look the other way with their destructive lifestyle choices (like drugs) but are to help them (the operative word here is help. If they refuse to attempt to improve themselves than it is a waste of time trying to help them). To not hold someone accountable for their destructive lifestyles is not helping them, it is abusing them. It is abuse because we are not holding them accountable , to see the destruction in their lives and others and make not attempt to improve their lives.

To be compassionate is to help them leave that destructive lifestyle not to encourage them to continue in it. Yes, we need to be tender and compassionate but with a good dose of firmness ,when necessary, is needed in the equation as well.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Please Jehovah EL RACHUM (Merciful God) bless me to be merciful toward others as You are merciful unto me. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose merciful blood cleanses me of my sins 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.

Boy is That Hard to Do

BE STILL

 Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. Psalm 27:14 New Living Translation Bible

Boy is that hard to do, wait patiently.

There has been a few times when while being unfairly severely abused the Lord told me to wait patiently and things will swing my way while the perpetrators will receive just punishment from the Lord. It took about three years of being brave and courageous and not giving up before what the Lord revealed to me came to pass. It is heartening to see the wait was worth it but heartache to watch the perpetrators receive their just rewards (and they still are).

I always thought myself to be a patient man, until becoming a Christian. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Boy is that ever rewarding to do, wait patiently.

There has been a few times when it just did not seem worth it to continue on in the path the Lord had requested that be taken. Having faith is what carried me through. Then it seemed as if things were happening rapid fire as the blessing multiplied one after another as had been promised.

“If we wait upon God, there is no danger. If we rush on, He must let us see the consequences of it.” — John Darby

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) that You are always faithful to do as You promise to do in Your time and in Your way. I thank you for teaching me to be patient because Your timing and Your mannerism is far superior to mine. I laud You in the name of He who made the supreme sacrifice for me at just the right time in just the right manner Jesus Christ. Amen

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