Security of the One Who Trusts in the Lord.

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

 I dwell in the shelter of the Most High Will and remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”
For He will save me from the trap of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover me and completely protect me with His pinions, And under His wings me will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.

 I will not be afraid of the terror of night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Nor of the destruction (sudden death) that lays waste at noon.

A thousand may fall at my side And ten thousand at my right hand, But danger will not come near me. Because I trust and obey Jehovah many diseases which are caused by promiscuous life style will not affect me. Because I listen to Jehovah I will not fall for scammers whose only end is your destruction.

I will only [be a spectator as I] look on with my eyes And witness the [divine] repayment of the wicked [as I watch safely from the shelter of the Most High].

Because I have made the Lord, [who is] my refuge, is a place of safety and security, Even the Most High, my dwelling place,

No evil will befall me, Nor will any plague come near my tent. For He will command His angels in regard to me,  To protect and defend and guard me in all my ways [of obedience and service. They will lift me up in their hands,
So that I do not [even] strike my foot against a stone.

Does this sound familiar? Did satan not tempt Jesus with this quote during His temptation in the wilderness?

I will tread upon the lion and cobra; The young lion and the serpent I will trample underfoot. The lion devours(tries to take your love, joy and peace from you as well as material things like money and the cobra spits poison which is lies and gossip.

“Because he set his love on Me, therefore I will save him; I will set him [securely] on high, because he knows My name [he confidently trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never abandon him, no, never].

“I call upon Jehovah, and He will answer me; He will be with my in trouble; He will rescue me and honor me.
“With a long life Jehovah will satisfy me And Jehovah will let me see My salvation.” 

  Psalm 91 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How do you feel now? 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) that You are always with me. Even when it seems like everything around me is being ripped apart I have faith in Your Divine providence that even better is awaiting me when You rebuild me. I thank you in the name of He whose resurrection rebuilt His disciples even when their world was turned upside down when they saw their Savior on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This is the Formula With

CHIEF DUTY

 

This is the formula with Jehovahs call upon our daily life.

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

His commands to me are: Wait for the Lord(Psalm 27:14).
Be still before Lord and wait patiently for Him(Psalm 37:7).
Maintain love and justice, and wait for my God always(Hosea 12:6).

These are the benefits of waiting for the Lord: Blessed are all who wait for Him! He rises to show me compassion” (Isaiah 30:18).
They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength(Isaiah 40:31).
Surely, this is my God; I trust (waited) in him, and he saved me(Isaiah 25:9).

My declaration to Him: Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, I wait for you; your name and renown are the desires of my heart(Isaiah 26:8).
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning(Psalm 130:5, 6).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) that when I am faithful unto You, You are ten fold more faithful towards me in return. This is the greatest investment of all. I praise You in the name of Your most obedient son 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

They are Neither Right or Good.

FOLLOW JESUS

 For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. Ephesians 2:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have witnessed many who take on tasks in the belief that they are doing Gods work so they will receive Gods blessings. That that is a form of bribery. They may be doing good in the community but of course their endeavors mean nothing to Jehovah.

The Christian motto is:Not my will but Your will be done my Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

An obedient son or daughter of Jehovah seeks His will not their own. When we make this commitment He will guide us where we are best suited to meet His needs in His way.

When we fulfill His direction this is pleasing in Jehovahs eyes.

Before you make any plans to service Christ, take it to the King (Jesus) first. Then, wait for His direction.

Be patient.

Moses had to wait forty years. Paul had to wait three.

While you are waiting He is preparing you for meaningful service unto Him. He is also preparing the place of service for you to go to and the proper time.

“Christ is our justification, from which follows that our good works, if they are of Christ, are good; but if ours, they are neither right or good.” ―Ulrich Zwingli

Prayer:Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with guidance in the when, how and where to serve You in the manner in which You know is best suited for this servant to serve You. I praise You in You majestic name. Amen

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

They Want Something From Him.

WORSHIP

 And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross daily[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many times have you seen children give a grandma a great big hug because she bought them something they wanted? They do not love grandma, they love the gift she has bought them.

How many folks only love Jesus because they want something from Him?

How many are willing to suffer for Him and because of Him?

Look around you and think of what is near and dear to your heart. Would you put it on the alter and sacrifice it to Christ (if it is someone or a pet, please do not physically sacrifice it)? By that, I mean would you give it up in order to become a servant of the most high King? So we will say you are living in a nice home in a nice neighborhood, if Christ called upon you to sell the house, give the money to a charity of His choosing and live in a ghetto, would you do it?

Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, including me.

Would you be obedient unto His commands?

If not, then you are not a true Christian but a marshmallow one. Think of the one you love the most.

If becoming a true Christian meant that they would hate you and disown you, would you sacrifice that relationship for Christ? That means you will never see them or speak to them for the rest of your life. Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, I have witnessed it numerous times in Asia.

“Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly Kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many desirous of consolation, but few of tribulation. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities befall them.” — Thomas à Kempis

Prayer: Thank you for the privilege of enduring numerous trials and tribulations in my relationship with You Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend). It has blessed me with coming into and ever deeper everlasting loving relationship with You my best friend because of these sufferings. I exalt You in Your wonderful name. Amen.

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

I Will Put a New

BE LOVING LIKE JESUS

“I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart.” Ezekiel 36:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Those in the world have hearts of stone towards Jehovah because they are so enraptured with worshiping themselves. They do not see the filth of their wicked ways, they only see entitlement.

The Holy Spirit is the ultimate heart surgeon.

It is with precision that He removes all the blockage in our hearts to loving Jehovah more that loving ourselves. He is an expert and replacing these obstructions with pure arteries that pump Divine spiritual blood through out our spirit.

The difference between a human heart surgeon and the Holy Spirit is that the heart surgeon accomplishes His work in a matter of hours where as the Holy Spirits operation lasts all the way until we reach total purity in our spiritual heart in Heaven home. The more He operates on us the more the ways of the world are detestable unto us and the more communion with Jehovah is our utmost desire.

When you become a Christian, the filthy desires of the world are repugnant to you and are replaced with the desires of Jehovah, Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) that Your Divine light has burned off the filthy dross of the world and replaced it with fantastic desires which is in harmony with You. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Sound Judgment and Discipline.

 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says sound judgment and discipline.

How are we to receive these daily Heavenly necessities in our lives?

Sound judgment can only be achieved through constant tutorship of the Holy Spirit and obedience unto our Divine Teacher. The more we listen and obey the more He will bless us with Divine wisdom in every aspect of our lives.

Think of it like going to school.

You must learn the instruction from your grade one teacher before you graduate to grade two. Now for those of us that are old enough, reflect how much you have progressed in knowledge since grade one.

So too it is with the Holy Spirits school of Divine life.

We must start out small with baby steps in our early walk and then sometimes slowly and sometimes in leaps and bounds walk towards Heaven in the knowledge and wisdom of Heavenly citizenship. Joseph son of Jehovah.

Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah. The metamorphosis that occurs in us is the amazing abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing this difficult student with Your Divine wisdom, You amazing patience and Your ultimate strength to become the child my Beloved Heavenly Father desires me to be. Thank You for gently nagging me to discipline Your lessons into my daily life. I praise You in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Notice it Says Continually.

 

Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence]. 1 Chronicles 16:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says continually.

Have you ever seen a chicken after its head has been chopped off ( those who grew up on a farm fifty years ago know what I am referring to, sorry if it offends you city slickers) ? The chickens body flows and runs all around the place for a minute or two.

How many of us do this when unexpected problems or catastrophes slam into us?

I know in my early walk with Christ this occurred many times at the slightest incident. Now when the event first occurs there is the initial shock and worry but I do as the Holy Spirit has trained me to do over many decades: I take it to the Lord in prayer and trust His providence to see me through, that is what faith is. This only becomes second nature because of continuous daily communion with Him.

He Divinely guides most of my every moves. I say most because there are moments in all of our lives where we surrender to selfish fleshly desires.

He always provides me with strength to accomplish the daily tasks He assigns us and yes He does assign us daily tasks as every King does his servants.

Just as Christ is our Heavenly King, so too are we His earthly servants. Joseph son of Jehovah.

The more we experience this the stronger our trust in Him to provide for and protect us in our disasters.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me continuously with Your wonderful presence every moment of my life. I cherish our communion together. Thank you for walking with me through the many trials and tribulations experienced in my walk with You and for walking with me through my crucifixion, being put through the furnace to burn off the dross. I know these event were necessary and that they would have been impossible to accomplish if You were not there with me. I exalt You in the name of He who blessed all He spent time with as He walked amongst us Jesus CHRIST. Amen.

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