It is Not My Job

christ, will lead To It is not my job to change anyone’s mind.

It is my duty (which is an act of love) to be obedient and do as the Holy Spirit directs me to do in service to my Heavenly King, Jesus.

When feeling rejected or bitter, I am to stay focused on Jesus’ satisfaction and rewards not mans. I obey King Jesus and leave the results to Him.

It then becomes obvious that Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and I have a deep loving relationship. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Ps10:16 for blessing me with the honour of serving such an awesome King as You and depending upon You and You alone for praise. It is in Your magnificent name I pray amen.

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

As a Christian I

If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today, God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God: God’s blessing inside the city,
God’s blessing in the country;
God’s blessing on your children,
    the crops of your land,
    the young of your livestock,
    the calves of your herds,
    the lambs of your flocks.
God’s blessing on your basket and bread bowl;
God’s blessing in your coming in,
God’s blessing in your going out.                                                                                                  God will defeat your enemies who attack you. They’ll come at you on one road and run away on seven roads.                                                                                                                               God will order a blessing on your barns and workplaces; he’ll bless you in the land that God, your God, is giving you.                                                                                                            God will form you as a people holy to him, just as he promised you, if you keep the commandments of God, your God, and live the way he has shown you.                                All the peoples on Earth will see you living under the Name of God and hold you in respectful awe.                                                                                                                                        God will lavish you with good things: children from your womb, offspring from your animals, and crops from your land, the land that God promised your ancestors that he would give you. God will throw open the doors of his sky vaults and pour rain on your land on schedule and bless the work you take in hand. You will lend to many nations but you yourself won’t have to take out a loan. God will make you the head, not the tail; you’ll always be the top dog, never the bottom dog, as you obediently listen to and diligently keep the commands of God, your God, that I am commanding you today. Don’t swerve an inch to the right or left from the words that I command you today by going off following and worshiping other gods.Deuteronomy 28: 1-14 The Message (MSG)

Normally I keep politics out of my blog but because this is, in my opinion, a very important election in Canada as a Christian I feel it my duty to educate all Christians in this country to the alternative to the main political parties.

Have lived through numerous parties in power I have seen that, in my opinion, they do not represent Christian values.

Therefore in this election I have voted for the Christian Heritage party. Their platform represents what I believe needs to be done in this country to improve our economic, educational, environmental, judicial and security.

Vote wise, vote Christian  Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Pathway For the Work Of

 “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.1 Samuel 15:22 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

What an incredible path He has chosen for me to follow. My Beloved slowly transformed me from a country hick into a obedient son of His.

The path went from moving to the city from the farm (which was a huge act of faith and was terrifying to do) and learning natural medicine to planting tree’s in Gods garden (I say the earth is Gods garden and we are His caretakers). From there He had me slowing seeds for His two legged garden (that is, bringing souls into His family) in China. Next He moved me to come home and be a live in care giver to a challenging mother. None of this was conceivable when I was a child shy sick.

It was accomplished through obedience unto my Heavenly King and working in harmony with the Holy Spirit.

“Obedience, pure and simple, opens up a pathway for the work of God.” — David Stevens

Now Christ, our king may not have such challenging duties (duty is an act of love, obligation is an exchange of goods, i.e. I am obligated to work for an employer as he is obligated to pay me for that work). But, every act of worship no matter how big or small is an act of love unto our Heavenly Father Jehovah and His son our King Jesus

There is no act of love unto Christ no matter how big or small that is no great in Heaven Joseph a son of Jehovah  

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the honour of being Your humble loyal obedient servant and for the numerous opportunities You present to me to serve You. I exalt You in Your majestic name. 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.

We Also Need to be Continuously Expanding

FOLLOWING CHRIST

  O Lord, truly I am Your servant. Psalm 116:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are some that meditate upon the meaning of life while contributing nothing to it. What a waste of life.

There are those who are so concerned about the here and now that they think nothing about eternity. What a meaningless life.

Both are wrong.

Yes we are to be working and planning for this life in harmony with Jehovahs will.

However, we also need to be continuously expanding and growing in our spiritual development at the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This will ultimately lead us from becoming earthly servants of our Beloved King, Jesus to being His spiritual Heavenly servants in the home Jehovah has prepared for us.

In the Christian life we must not neglect the visible , yet the invisible must be supremely regarded. In other words we are to be studious unto our earthly duties, like working to support ourselves while studiously being good servants to our Divine Heavenly King. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) bless me to concentrate upon the appropriate things in the appropriate manner and in the appropriate time so as to not devote too much time to one or the other. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked in perfect harmony when I He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Non-serving Does Not Belong to Us.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do Ephesians 2:10 New International Version

There is no such thing.

There is no such thing as a non-serving Christian.

Yes we have been saved by grace alone with Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.

That does not mean we can accept Christ and sit on our hands waiting for Him to take us to Heaven.

Once we become a member of Jehovah’s family He has His set chores for us to do. These are chores that are specially prepared just for us in our service to Christ.

Do not forget that if Jesus is our king then we are His servants.

What does a servant do?

They serve.

It need not be anything spectacular like missionary work. Whatever you do, when you do it for the glory of Christ, you are fulfilling your duties as His servant.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the numerous opportunities You so graciously provide me with to serve You both great and small every day. I give thanks in the name of Your wonderful child who served You so admirably when we walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

We are in this Together.

 

 The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We are in this together.

We need to pray for each other more than we need to lend a helping hand.

The reason for this is that through our prayers we bring into play Jehovahs power at our request.

After all, what loving father would not oblige an obedient, respectful loving childs request if the child asks trusting that the request will be answered in the positive.

Through my prayers amazing things blessings have occurred for others that are impossible to answer using human logic. This of course of the perfect timing to share the gospel with others and bring them into Jehovahs awesome family.

Praying for others is a true act of love towards them. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always providing for the receptive ones I pray for. I exalt You in the name of He who is the answer to all of our prayers Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We are All Healers

Carry one another’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the requirements of the law of Christ [that is, the law of Christian love]. Galatians 6:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We are to help others as we need them to help us. Joseph son of Jehovah

Do you know any seniors ( Christian or otherwise ) that need help cutting their lawns in the summer and shoveling the snow off of their sidewalks and driveways in the winter? Do you see the need and turn a blind eye? How do you think Jesus feels about that?

Do you know a single working mother that needs a babysitter but cannot afford one? Do you offer to watch the children for her if you are able or do you turn a blind eye to that? How do you think Jesus feels about that?

Do you know of someone that has just had surgery and is at home alone? Do you offer to clean their apartment and cook their meals for them or do you turn a blind eye to that? How do you think Jesus feels about that?

If you are looking to serve Christ, begin by looking in your own neighbourhood. Joseph son of Jehovah

Are you trying to carry a heavy burden by yourself when you know Christian brothers and sisters that are willing to help but you are too proud to ask or accept their gracious offer? How do you think Jesus feels about that? After all, did He not require help to carry His cross to die for our sins?

“We are all healers who can reach out and offer health, and we are all patients in constant need of help.” — Henri Nouwen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for always being there to help me and I humbly request that You bless me to be emulating Your gracious love and assistance towards others as You have unto me. I rejoice in this blessing and ask for this blessing in the name of He who alawys took the time to help those who were in need Jesus Christ. Amen.

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