I am Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

On an Admitted

HIS INSTRUCTION

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16:11 New Living Translation

A presumed fullness is when we brag that we are full and have no need of Jehovah. It is arrogant and is bragging. Beware. What is freely given unto you can and will be freely taken. Then you will end up with nothing. I have seen it oh so many times.

Then, there is the Christian perspective.

We empty our wants and desires for Jehovahs wants and desires. In the process we are blessed with love, purpose and spiritual treasures beyond compare. We may not be wealthy in the worlds eyes but boy are we ever rich in Jehovahs eyes.

“God is more disposed to move on an admitted emptiness than a presumed fullness.” — Tommy Tenn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with the most nutritious feast that is ever freely available to all seeking a fulfilling spiritual, mental and physical life. I praise You in the name of He who fills us daily with His Divine love 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.

Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?

EXAMINE YOURSELF
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4   Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                            

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumours, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying. All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offences and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle 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 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

Not Until We Have Become Humble and Teachable

follow your ways

 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom; A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him.

There have been so many times in my life when I see someone new at a job doing something wrong or doing it in a difficult way. I try to teach them the correct way or an easier way and they look at me with contempt like they know so much more than me. That is very rude arrogant and disrespectful. The end result for them is of course disastrous.

So too it is with us.

When the Holy Spirit tries to teach us a better way at life and we arrogantly contemptuously ignore Him and do the exact opposite, not only is the result disastrous but it is arrogant and disrespectful towards Him. Not only must we listen to Jehovah when He speaks to us but we are to be obedient as well. We must admit and submit to His supreme intelligence over our feeble minuscule understanding. Otherwise, what is the sense of Him speaking with us?

“Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty…acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always listen, understand and obey Your voice because I know You only want what is best for me because You love me and care about me. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always listened to His Heavenly Fathers voice Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

You are a Stubborn Fool.

CALMS THE STORMS

For the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel has said this, “In returning [to Me] and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and confident trust is your strength.” But you were not willing Isaiah 30:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

So many times when in stress, pain and uncertainty Jehovah is gracious and comes to us offering relief. To receive this relief we must obey His guidance and trust Him.

Instead too many are dim witted and arrogantly tell Jehovah that they can handle the situation themselves (which they know they cannot because it has them stressed out. Too many laugh at Jehovahs guidance and believe their idiotic plans are superior to Him. Not only does their plans fail but their stress level sky rockets until they crash and burn. Then, they go and cry baby to Jehovah about how bad of a God he was because He refused to help them. Oh, the stupidity of it all.

Notice, if you will, that this passage is concerning those of Jehovahs family. They of all souls should know better so they are even bigger idiots. It happens to us all but the wise learn from this and change both their attitude and their actions.

When you refuse to come unto  and obey Jehovah you are a stubborn fool of which there is nothing to compare. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I wish there was some manner in which I could comfort You Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for when the fools pierce Your heart with grief because they arrogantly refuse to accept Your guidance in the right way of living. I thank You for said guidance and pray that I always listen, understand and obey Your wisdom. I sincerely ask and pray this in the name of the wisest teacher of all 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 Tragedy of Life

VOICE OF GOD

For I know that the Lord is great Psalm 135:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we walk with Christ, the more we get to know Him (although, we will never really get to know everything about Him because there is just too much of Him to ever have the time to learn it all).

The more we get to know Him the greater He becomes to us. This greatness it exhibited in His love, power, wisdom and provision of which there is none to compare. \

“The tragedy of life and of the world is not that men do not know God; the tragedy is that, knowing Him, they still insist on going their own way.” William Barclay  

Jehovah reveals Himself to us in many wonderful and awesome ways every day. Because of this revelation we should be drawn towards Him and the deeper the desire to obey Him. After all, it is because He loves us that He wants the best for us.

Therefore, should we not follow the advice of the all knowing God to direct every aspect of our lives?

The reason fools reject Jehovah is because of arrogance and greed. The advice Jehovah blesses them with does not suit what they selfishly desire in their lives so they foolishly reject it and arrogantly follow their own thoughts (which are influenced by the world around then and he who influences the world is satan) to attain what they greedily want. The end result of this pathetic attempt is a worthless life with a huge hole in their heart because that can only be filled with Jehovahs love (which He only blesses those who belong to Him with).

There is no such thing as atheist, there is only intentional idiots. Joseph a son of Jehovah      

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (Revealer of Mysteries) for all of the amazing ways in which You reveal the mystery of You to me. It is truly awesome the manner in which You reveal Your majesty, wisdom, love and compassion. I exalt You in the name of Your awesome Son Jesus Christ. Amen

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