He Takes Us Ever Deeper

 As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should! Psalm 119:7 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Righteous: acting in an moral way and virtuous manner ( Moral: founded on the fundamental principles of right conduct rather than on legalities, enactment, or custom, concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical) ( Virtuous: conforming to moral and ethical principles; morally excellent; upright ) Dictionary. com

We are to be grateful for the blessing of being adopted into Jehovahs family. The best manner of doing this is to live as He desires us to be.

To accomplish this we must emulate Christs demeanour. We need the Holy Spirit to teach us morality (although we all know right from wrong in its basics, He takes us ever deeper into it).

follow your ways

As well as the tools to live it out in our daily life.

As this new creation in Christ takes form in our mental, physical and spiritual being we become more and more virtuous.

This is not a one off experience but rather a lifetime commitment.

I have been following Christ for decades and He is still transforming me. We are a work in progress all the way up to Heavens Gate where Christ will perfect us into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now, to the world that walks in darkness, this is extremely offensive. It is great to see someone walk with these qualities as long as they do not step upon that individuals toes.

When you are welcomed into Jehovahs family, you will be bitterly rejected by satans family including your family and old friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Believe me I have had plenty of experience where the very same man or woman that commends me for behavior with another becomes extremely offended and offensive when the same situation happens between them and me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending the Holy Spirit Rabbi (the Holy Spirit my amazing Teacher) for enlightening me to the manner to behave as a child in Your Holy family. Thank You Holy Spirit for teaching me and helping me become the child my Loving Father desires for me to be. In the name of He who I desire the deepest to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do You Give Honey or Do You Shoot Arrows?

 

WORDS HEAL IN LOVE A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1, New International Version

Please, always remember this verse. Write it down and keep it with you.

Do you speak words of encouragement when others are enduring difficult times? Or, do you pour hot burning colas of pain on others?

Which words do you use?

Do you comfort them and encourage them or do you criticize them and mock them?

Do you always try to say something positive to people or do you take every opportunity to cruelly mock them?

Remember this as well:” What goes around comes around.”

How you behave with others will be done back to you at sometime.

I personally prefer to uplift and encourage others. In doing so I am following in the footsteps of my beloved Jesus.

God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters. J. H. Jowett

Prayer: Please oh Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) guide my words that they may be healing and soothing to all I encounter today. In the name of the sweetest orator Jesus Christ we pray. 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

A Dangerous Trap

COMES BACK

 

The mouth of an immoral woman is a dangerous trap; those who make the Lord angry will fall into it. Proverbs 22:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament  

I have noticed that immoral folks are demanding ungrateful creatures. They only call you when they want something and never help you in return.

Perhaps that is Jehovahs manner in which He delivers justice to those who anger Him.

The way to anger Jehovah is to be selfish, self centered and cold hearted.

Be careful of how you treat others because Jehovah will allow someone worse to come into your life and give you back seven times worse than what you gave another. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

The wicked conceive evil; they are pregnant with trouble and give birth to lies.They dig a deep pit to trap others, then fall into it themselves. The trouble they make for others backfires on them. The violence they plan falls on their own heads. Psalms 7:14-16The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

The Lord is known for his justice. The wicked are trapped by their own deeds. Psalm 9:16 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) bless me to live a life of integrity, compassion and respect. I have a deep desire to imitate my Beloved best friend Jesus Christ. I humbly request this in His amazing name. Amen.

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Photo and article @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2019

More Loudly Than Your Lips.

chief-duty

 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus Colossians 3:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is an old saying: walk the walk before you talk the talk. I whole heartedly believe in this.

We are to walk like Christ did so as to shine His light into a dark world. Let our light be like a like that attracts the bugs at night to a street light. The difference is that our light guides others to Christ and then to Heaven.

It was the method I unknowingly used when a teacher (I say unknowingly because I just behaved as a Christian naturally and that stood out from the other teachers. When my children asked why I was different then I shared Jesus with them. Most were not interested but some were. Even if I bring one to Christ that is a great harvest to Him) with success every semester.

At the same time before we follow anyone claiming to be from Christ it is best to step back and watch their behavior. If it does not jive with Christ run away for they are of the deceiver and his name is satan.

May your life preach more loudly than your lips. Ellery Channing

Prayer: Please Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) bless me with Your spiritual nourishment to enable me to live a life that nourishes those around me with Your Divine love. Please use this action to encourage others to come into Your Holy family. I meekly request this in the name of He who led twelve that set the world on fire Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Even Associate With

  do not allow them to control you

Do not even associate with a man given to angry outbursts; Or go [along] with a hot-tempered man, Or you will learn his [undisciplined] ways And get yourself trapped  [in a situation from which it is hard to escape].Proverbs 22:24-25  Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are explosive folks. You can be having a nice social conversation with them and suddenly they will explode in a rage. I have seen it numerous times and it was terrifying, until Jehovah blessed me with the peace, wisdom and grace to be firm with them and inform them that that childish behavior is not tolerated with me so either straighten up or get away from me. If they refuse to obey then I inform them they can discuss it with the police. Then they leave, all the while screaming like a banshee about how I am abusing them (it is not my fault, it is yours is their mantra). 

Do not try to reason with them because there is no reasoning with a fool. All that will happen is that you will get into a yelling contest with them and lose your temper, Then, they will manipulate you to lose your temper even more and they will be laughing at you on the inside.                                         

Never get into an argument with a fool. To do so, you have to go down to their level and they will beat you every time from experience. Anonymous 

I speak from a lot of experience.

In the future I refuse to even acknowledge them (even to say hello or good morning) because that opens the door and they are thieves. They will steal your peace and you will get into another yelling contest. Again, I speak from a lot of experience.

I depend upon the Holy Spirit to bless me with strength, wisdom and grace to handle these poor pitiful folks. Yes some of them are like this because of unresolved issues in their lives but most are like this because they just love to fight.    

The pitiful thing is though, that because they are cursed with this disposition, they have no friends, especially in their elder years.                                    

No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace while dealing with a war monger who attempts to steal it from me. Thank you for blessing me with the wisdom in how to prevent them from stealing Your Divine gift from me. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

All scripture is for instruction.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 All Scripture is God breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]. 2 Timothy 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

A desire to know merely to know, is curiosity.

But a desire to know in order to do, is godliness.

I have met many that can quote any Bible verse for any situation. When asked if they put it into application in their lives they just give me a dumb look and walk away.

I have met a few of the wise that can quote a Bible verse for any situation and explain what it means and how the Holy Spirit helped them to put it into application in their lives. Those are the ones I will listen to and respect.

“To know God is to know that our obedience is due to Him.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wisdom and fortitude to obey what has been taught to me by Your wise teacher The Holy Spirit. Doing so blesses me with being a good and faithful servant. I edify You in the name of Your most obedient son 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.
