With a True and Sincere Heart.

 Let us approach [God] with a true and sincere heart in unqualified assurance of faith. Hebrews 10:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

You cannot con, deceive or manipulate Jehovah so do not even try. When you have messed up fess up. Do not try to give excuses or try to shove the blame on someone else or circumstances. It does not work.

Instead, without excuses, humbly and sincerely apologize to Jehovah and ask how to reconcile what you done wrong. Then, no matter how hard, obey Him. The results are amazing.

If you want something from Jehovah do not try to bargain with Him.

How can you bargain with the Creator that has everything?

Do not foolishly try to make promises you cannot fulfill or refuse to one He has fulfilled His end of the bargain. Beware, when you do that you are trying to make a fool out of Jehovah and He will bring down severe judgment upon you and you will lose more that you gain.

Just, with a sincere heart ask of Him and accept His reply. Open your heart unto Him in all love gratefulness and respect and see how He blesses you with a deep close strong loving relationship with Him.

“Sincerity carries the soul in all simplicity to open its heart to God.” — John Bunyan

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with teaching me to always have a sincere heart in all my conversations with my Beloved Father in Heaven, my loving King Jesus and You my wise Teacher. May all of my conversations be true and honest with You, especially since those are the only ones You will listen to. I humbly joyously thank You in the name of the most sincere heart Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

My New Name

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it. Revelation 2:17 New International Version

When researching for a recent article I discovered our last name is in reference to the clan we are born into ( that is what your family name is).

Since becoming a Christian we belong to Jehovahs family it is only right we call ourselves of the family of Jehovah.

My parents gave me the name of Joseph. Unbeknownst to them Joseph means Jehovah will increase. Boy has He ever. He has blessed me with increasing intimacy with Him, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. He has blessed with with increased wisdom. He has increased me with service unto Him. I believe Jehovah directed them to give me that name. As such the first name shall remain.

Therefore my new name is Joseph son of Jehovah ( when we become Christians we are a child of Jehovah, this is my God given name).

And you know what? It feels natural to say : my name is Joseph son of Jehovah

But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name John 1:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version What is your God given name?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for the supreme blessing of being a member of Your holy family and with the wonderful name You have lovingly provided me with. I thank You in the name of He who has the most beautiful name Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Your Ears Will Hear.

Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever experienced a voice telling you not to go a certain route to school or work?

I have.

When I listened and obeyed certain disaster was avoided. When the warning was ignored I paid the price.

Have you ever heard a voice warning you about a deal or about someone you just met?

I have.

When I listened and obeyed certain disaster was avoided. When the warning was ignored I paid the price.

Now of course there will be times the devil uses this tactic to trick you.

So how are you to avoid this snare?

For me I take it to the Lord in prayer and inform His that I am calling on Him to protect me from the wicked ones wiles and if the feeling is still strong obedience is followed. If the feeling goes away I know it is the trickster.

Another tactic is to know your Bible and refer to it when the voice comes.

There truly is nothing new under the sun, including the devils tactics. Another tactic is to contemplate why I will or will not do this. Am I doing this for selfish reasons, if so it is not from Christ but from Satan.

‘I value all things only by the price they will bring in eternity ‘” John Wesley

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your comforting, strengthening, guiding and healing wise words to encourage me and direct me upon Your most Holy path. I praise You in the name of He who followed Your path all the way to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The More We Become Like Him.

choices

 Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well beloved children [imitate their father]. Ephesians 5:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whether you like it or not when you become an adult your personality and disposition always imitates one of your parents. Being older now I can see this through four generations.

Now the more time we spend with someone the more we become like them ( just ask any couple that has been married for thirty years or more ) so it only stands to reason that the more time we spend with Christ the more we become like Him.

Now just like with any family there are rules of conduct and behaviour.

So too it is with Jesus’ family. Many of these rules will be foreign to us and down right unattainable. That is when we are blessed with the Divine assistance of the Holy Spirit who will mentor us through the muddy waters and discipline us when we go astray. The more we attain this the more we resemble Christ.

“The steady discipline of intimate friendship with Jesus results in men becoming like Him.” — H. E. Fosdick

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for all the help you have made in encouraging, guiding and moulding this child of Yours to emulate His cherished Heavenly Beloved every day in every way. I exalt You in the name of my big brother whom I idolize and desire to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Show You Great and Mighty Things

devine-communion

 ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’ Jeremiah 33:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The best education you can get is in the University of Jehovah. Man the courses provided there are unimaginable. One of the benefits of attending this university is that the courses are never ending. Just as you complete one another one begins. Just when you naively belief there is nothing else to learn something pops up that stuns and amazes you.

Yes there are exams but you cannot study for them. Either you have learned them or you have to repeat the course. There is no failing just that you need more tutoring to digest what is being taught.

Of course we have our mentor ( The Holy Spirit ) is on twenty four hour call. He may not answer your call all the time though. That is because He does not want you to get lazy and have Him do all your thinking for you. As you progress at this university you fall deeper and deeper in love with the faculty:

The headmaster is a kindly Father called Jehovah, the Head Teacher is a patient teacher by the name of Jesus Christ and the mentor is truly awesome the manner in which He tutors to each of us individually by the name of The Holy Spirit.

The more you are at this university the more time you desire to talk with these three incredible deans ( some call it prayer).

The admission price is accepting Jesus Christ as your savior, king and best friend. That you as such, have become His bondsman or woman ( which means you freely serve them out of love ). The invitation is open to all, rich and poor, young and old of every nationality.

Why do you not come join us?

The graduation services are held in a beautiful place that will be our eternal home, it is called Heaven.

“What wings are to a bird and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.” Corrie Ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with entry into the most amazing school there can every be with the most awesome teachers. Thank you for the free life time enrolment and for the patience with this some times dull witted student. I praise You in the name of He whose blood paid the tuition fee Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Great and Priceless Treasure.

christs-love-blossom-in-your-heart

 Great and priceless treasure is in the house of the [consistently] righteous one [who seeks godly instruction and grows in wisdom], But trouble is in the income of the wicked one [who rejects the laws of God]. Proverbs 15:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To me the greatest treasure is spiritual.

Therefore to me the greatest treasure is a loving relationship with Jehovah. This is indeed a priceless treasure, what is there that is even of equal value much less worth more?

The treasure chest consists of an endearing love that is constantly expanding. An assurance that Jehovah is always there to guide me through rough waters and to protect me from the tsunamis of troubles that is too great for me to bear. A awesome teacher that teaches me to be a child of His with integrity and teaches me how to avoid many troubles, that teaches me wisdom. A incredible relationship that blesses me with amazing spiritual strength to conquer and destroy weaknesses that attempt to destroy me.

Oh what a truly amazing treasure this is.

The greatest treasure is the treasure of an amazing loving relationship with Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand there is much truth in the adage: There is no peace for the wicked. They are always fretting to the point of insomnia and paranoia about someone whom they have done wrong jumping out to get them. They toss and turn worrying about their material wealth vanishing and leaving them in the gutter. Then there is the suffering from enduring Jehovahs wrath for their evil wickedness. Their mental and physical health is slowly destroyed until they are a shell of a human being.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with providing me with a incredible loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for the unending riches that comes with this blessing like peace, love, joy and confidence. I extol Thee in the name of He whose blood is the key that opens up this treasure box Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Love to Have Intercourse with God.

i-love-you-my-lord

  As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Psalms 42 Holy Bible New International Version

Having intercourse means to enjoy a relationship with Him ( no not just sexual but in conversation as well. ).

Think of a marriage, if the couple only have intercourse in courting and then say :Well we had intercourse before marriage we do not require any more in our relationship. “ is that relationship not doomed? Think of how you were always calling , texting and desiring to spend time together in courtship. If there is none of that in the marriage that is not a marriage but a life sentence.

If a child says I had intercourse with you when I was born, I no longer require intercourse with you is that not abusive? What kind of family life is that?

So too it is with us.

We need daily intercourse with our Beloved if we desire for our relationship to grow. Just as a thirsty deer pants for cool life giving refreshing water so too are we to pant for Jehovahs sweet love in our daily lives. We must have a deep desire for a daily meeting with Him.

If you have no desire to enjoy and nurture a relationship with Christ , you are not a Christian. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the honoured privilege of sharing Divine intercourse with You. It is truly one of my most treasured gifts You have blessed me with. I humbly and joyously thank You in the name of my best friend with whom is always there to share treasured time with Jesus Christ. Amen

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