A closer walk with our beloved friend.


All of Grace

Grace—what a sweet fragrance. It is the greatest theme in the Bible.

Abounding grace, wondrous grace, boundless grace, fountain of grace, unfailing grace, unmeasurable grace, electing grace, matchless grace, overflowing grace, redeeming grace, pardoning grace, plenteous grace, unfailing grace, fullness of grace, efficacious grace, magnified grace, refreshing grace, sovereign grace, and salvation by grace, grace rich and free!

“Oh to grace, how great a debtor.”

God is exceedingly gracious to sinful man. Grace is the unmerited and undeserved favor of a holy God upon sinful depraved human beings. It is His kindness, love and nature to be gracious to humanity.

Grace is the very opposite of merit. It is totally undeserved favor of God toward the sinner. However, it is more than that, it is favor shown to the one who has deserved the very opposite.

What better definition of grace can you find than that expressed by the apostle Paul in Romans 5:8? “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

In contrast to contemporary man’s thinking, God does not owe sinful man anything. Every blessing humanity enjoys is the result of God’s “common grace.”

Every person is a recipient of God’s “common grace” whether he acknowledges it or not. However, “common grace” saves no one, and it never has. We need “special grace” to be saved.

“Saving grace,” on the other hand, redeems sinful man for time and eternity.

The apostle Paul tells us that no matter how great our sin, the grace of God is proven greater. “The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:20-21).

“Sin increased,” actual transgressions increased, but “grace abounded all the more.” More grace added to this super abundance of grace. Grace was added to more grace, over and above the grace that super abounded, with even more grace added to that!

“Oh, to grace how great a debtor”!

Do you need grace? Come to the fountain of super abounding, flooding grace!

All the Law can do is point its finger and say, “You are guilty!” It condemns sinful man. It shows sin for what it is in the eyes of God.

However, God has more than an abundant supply of grace. There was plenty of sin, but much, much more grace in superabundance. There is victory for the sinner in grace.

This superabundant grace replaces the reign of sin. We do not have the power to break free from sin, therefore it reigns and we cannot escape the penalty of death. “The wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23).

However, God’s grace reigns through the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Yes, grace triumphs when God imputes His righteousness and gives eternal life to the sinner who believes on the saving death of Jesus Christ to save him (Jn. 3:161 Pet. 1:18-19Rom. 5:6810:9-10138:15:1-22 Cor. 5:21).

God is gracious.

What is your response to God’s saving grace? Your eternal destiny depends upon your response to His saving grace. Christ died for you so that “whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

The great preacher of grace, John Newton, wrote:

“Amazing grace! How sweet the sound

            That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found,  

            Was blind, but now I see.”

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.”

When Anyone Tries To

When anyone tries to bait me into an argument, I just look at them and reply May Jesus Christ’s love and peace be with you today. Then smile and do not say another word. It sure throws the narcissists of. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

It Could be Intentional or Unintentional.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting (Psalm 139:23-24, New International Version).

Yes we need The Holy Spirit to come and convict us of any offensive way in us.

It could be intentional or unintentional.

Having lived in many cultures I discovered many things which are normal to those of my country are considered rude in another country. The Holy Spirit educated me about these and I was sensitive to them while living in that country. So something offensive may not in of itself be bad but sometimes offensive to another.

On the other hand there may be times when we have sinned and refuse to repent. The Holy Spirit will come and convict us of these and encourage us to take responsibility of them.

Be fair warned: if you refuse to listen to and obey The Holy Spirits conviction you will pay the price and it is always a nasty price to pay.

The Holy Spirit does not convict us to give us a guilt trip but rather to correct us and help us make what was wrong right. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for being able to know my Thoughts and know the best manner in which to correct faulty thinking and behavior. I praise You in the name of the best pilot in life, Jesus Christ. Amen

Will Suddenly be Broken

But they didn’t listen, nor did they pay attention. They were determined not to listen and not to accept instruction. Jeremiah/17/23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have seen the Lord try oh so very hard in oh so many ways to get through to block heads. Many times He persists for decades with no change in disposition of the block heads.

Finally, He in tears, He gives up and allows the wicked to reap what they have sown.

When that happens all Hell breaks loose and they cry out to Jehovah for deliverance.

His reply is that I tried talking with you but you stubbornly refused to listen. Fine, just as you turned your backs on Me, now, I turn My back on you when you reap what you have sown.

Shockingly even then the blockheads refuse to accept responsibilities for them actions and proceed to blame everyone and everything but themselves. They then live a life of living Hell for the rest of their miserable lives.

He who hardens his neck and refuses instruction after being often reproved (corrected, criticized), Will suddenly be broken beyond repair. Proverbs 29:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Stubbornness is the worst incurable disease to plague mankind. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses ) I have witnessed the terrible consequences of those that mock You and refuse to be obedient unto You.

Please always bless me to be sensitive and obedient unto Your word.

I do this not just to avoid the consequences of ungodly lifestyle but also because I love You so dearly that I have no desire to hurt Your cherished heart.

In the name of my King whom I am His honoured servant, Jesus Christ I meekly pray. Amen

May you always walk the path of righteousness which is the only sensible path to take to our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That Truly Honors Me.

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide ) for blessing me in so many ways through out the day. Indeed, oh my Beloved.

There are so many blessings You generously shower upon me that I am not even aware of.

One of Your best blessings is The Holy Spirit who makes me sensitive to Your blessings and a grateful heart to thank you for them both great and small.

A fabulous blessing of this is a grateful heart is a joyful heart.

I also love the unique ways You provide me to express my gratitude to You by being a blessing unto others.

I love to begin my day with prayers of gratitude because it puts me in a positive outlook for the day.

I love to end my day with prayers because no matter how bad the day was, there was always Your kind hand open with blessings upon Your cherished child.

I thank you in the name of Your greatest gift, Jesus Christ. Amen

But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. Psalm 50:23The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

May you be blessed to sacrifice yourself to others as a gift of thanks to He who blesses you with untold blessings through out the day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It Is the Most Destructive Force

For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that! 2 Timothy 3:2-5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We see it today every where we look.

It plagues those of all ages, nationalities, colour, sex and wealth.

It is the most destructive force to destroy every society since man began living communally. It is called selfishness.

Where once we had community groups helping each other as a duty (which is an act of love) now we have everyone screaming about their rights.

Yes we have rights in society but we also have responsibilities and duties. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We see folks piercing themselves and plastering themselves with hideous tattoos all as a exercise in vanity that screams look at me.

We see folks cheating family and friends with no remorse what so ever.

We see children not caring for their elderly parents.

We see elderly parents abusing their adult children that are taking care of them ( and believe me if you do not think that sweet little ol granma can be a real witch when no one is around boy do I have news for you. And yes, most of the abuse is done by the mothers rather than fathers. I know because I know someone who has been abused by their mother for seven years as her live in care giver and go on a support web site with other care givers. It is like a broken record with all the horrible abuse they endure.).

The phoniest folks I have ever met are the ones that attend church.

Now, Asian Christians are far different.

There, never have I met ones so on fire for Jesus and dedicate their lives to him that shames those in the west.

Prayer: Oh Jehovah El Hayyay (Psalms 42:8 GOD of My Life ) thank you for blessing me with a humble, meek, generous, self giving disposition both to those around me and to You.

Thank you that The Holy Spirit helps me to live a modest live being grateful more for Your spiritual blessings than the physical ones.

I thank you that He teaches me to live a Godly life that is pleasing to You.

May my heart always beat in tune with Yours all the way to Heaven.

In the name of the most humble of them all, Jesus Christ I humbly ask. Amen

May you be blessed with living a Godly life today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Holy Spirit Warned Me to Put On

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. James 1:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Before I tried to a wild cat that became friendly with us and came into our garage The Holy Spirit warned me to put on thick sweater and gloves.

I did not listen to him.

When I had him trapped in a certain location and tried to catch him with my bare hands he bite me hard. The hand became infected and swelled up like a balloon.

When the Lord warns be better listen and obey or there will be a price to pay.

My hand had become swollen up like a balloon after being bitten by the wild cat.

Four four days it was painful while I used natural medicine to cure it with little improvement.

One morning I prayed for the Lords healing of my wound and infection.

Our doctor gave me some medicine. About an hour later the puncture wound opened and puss came pouring out like a raging river.

Between purging the puss every day for a week and taking the medicine the wound healed.

Listen to The Holy Spirits guidance or suffer some very nasty consequences. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please forgive me Jehovah Mephalti (Psalms 18:2 The LORD My Deliverer ) for arrogantly, foolishly ignoring the warnings You lovingly give me to protect me from harm.

I humbly request this in the name of He who was obedient all the way to the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

May your ear always be attentive to the Holy Spirit voice.

May your feet always be a travelling the trail the Holy Spirit is leading you on today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That I May Live According To

“Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you.” Psalm 86:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There are four important equations in this verse every Christian needs to learn.

One is to learn.

I have met many that they will listen comment on how that is interesting and walk away or there are others that laugh at you and accuse you of being insane.

Then, there is the minority, we are the ones that put into action that which we have been taught. The wise one is the one that puts into practice in their live what they have learned.

Two is to live according to what you have learned. Now this comes in three parts. Part one is where you try to live according to what you have learned on your own.

Sometimes you succeed.

If you do not succeed then you need to try the other two.

Two is where you cannot do it on your own so you work in harmony with The Holy Spirit to succeed.

And, if that does not work then you need part three.

That is where you need to surrender and step aside and allow the Holy Spirit to accomplish the task for you.

Three is to live a pure life our is that your life may bring honour to Jesus Christ.

To live a pure life does not mean you are perfect but rather that you are living a life dedicated to Christ. And, fourth is that your life will bring honour to Jesus Christ.

The meaning of honour in this verse means: high respect, as for worth, merit, or rank

So, when men and or women see the manner in which you live and listen to your speech even if they do not agree with your belief in Christ they respect you and by extension Jesus.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah God of knowledge. ( Romans 11:33 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation ) please continue to bless me with the most amazing tutor, The Holy Spirit.

He enlightens me to the proper manner in which to behave as a child of Your.

He helps me to accomplish this duty.

He is so wonderful.

I sincerely request this in the name of the most amazing Teacher of all, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with always being sensitive and obedient unto The Holy Spirits tutelage. Joseph a son of Jehovah

One of the Most Annoying Types

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. James 4:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

One of the most annoying types of men or women I meet are the ones that are in love with themselves. They cannot say a complete sentence without bragging, I did this or I did that or I said this or I said that. It sounds like screeching your nails down a blackboard. They are proud and arrogant. They place themselves on a pedestal and everyone else is below them.

One thing I really enjoy is when they get knocked off of their high horse.

Of course rather than be humbled by it they feel indignant. The higher the horse, the harder the fall. Humble means not proud or arrogant, modest

On the flip side of the coin it is a real pleasure being around humble men and women.

To me being humble is being secure in who you are and as Christians we know we are loved and respected by Jehovah, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit. As a consequence I do not need to impress anybody.

Finding my identity in Jehovah who created me allows me to live unapologetically as who I am meant to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Honor means high respect, as for worth, merit, or rank

I constantly have men and women give me high respect in public and it makes me feel uncomfortable. For me, it is difficult to receive accolades. I feel very uncomfortable being in the spot light.

But, when Jehovah, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit say well done. I am well pleased with you. Then, I am filled with immeasurable joy as my heart dances with delight.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation ) continue to send The Holy Spirit to help me behave in such a way as to be a shining light in such a dark world.

May I be blessed that that light guides others into desiring to enter into the most brilliant light of all, Your glorious love.

I humbly request this in the name of the most brilliant light there is Jesus Christ. Amen

May you behave in a manner that when they see you, they see our best idol, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
