You Need to Give the One.

 But the loving kindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who [reverently] fear Him Psalm 103:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version                                                

To fear in this instance means to respect. To revere means to respect in awe and means to be lovingly obedient. Therefore you need to give the one in order to receive the other.

Think of it, have you ever given something to someone who is not only ungrateful but demanding?

I find the one goes with the other.

Not only are they ungrateful but they demand more and more while giving you nothing in return. Just ask most parents of adult children and grandparents today and they will tell you how that feels.

How much more is it insulting for you to behave in this disgusting behaviour towards our loving Heavenly Father?

The only time you talk with Him is when you want something from Him. You never say thank you and you never give Him anything in return.

Why would He bless you?

On the other hand, there are the children that are grateful to their parents for their help, are willing to help them and respect them.

Ask any parent of an adult child how it feels to have a child like that. How much more delightful do you think it feels for Jehovah to have such a treasure of a child like that?

Do you not think it brings Him great delight to bless a child like that?

Which one are you?

Be respectful to He who has an everlasting love for you. It came at a great cost. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our most loving Father) for blessing me with adopting me into Your Divine family. I relish spending quality time with You my Father, Jesus my big brother and the Holy Spirit my mentor every day. I deeply appreciate Your Heavenly love and You accepting mine. In the greatest acclimation I thank You in my reverential big brothers name Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

We Must be Willing To.

HE IS THE BOSS

 So submit to [the authority of] God. James 4:7 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I surrender all to Jesus. All of my life, finances, dreams, will and love to Him and to Him alone. That does not mean we cannot love anyone else but rather Jesus is always top dog in our life.

But as for me, I trust [confidently] in You and Your greatness, O Lord; I said, “You are my God.” Psalms 31:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I have trusted financial advisors and alls I got was an empty pockets as they ripped me off and got most of my money. I trusted doctors when sick and only got sicker. I trusted lovers and friends only to be betrayed and abused.

I have trusted Christ with my life and He has never disappointed me.

No, I do not believe we can ever completely trust Him. We are too weak to do that. But that is okay, as long as we surrender our will to Him, He will expand our trust, obedience, respect and love for Him.

“Christianity can never come to us as a bargain; it can never be had at wholesale price. We must be willing to pay the full price of surrender and trust.” — William L. Krutza

Prayer: This modest servant of Yours surrenders all unto You my cherished Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) knowing that it is trusted in the hands of the wisest, most loving,supreme sovereignty of all. I make this pledge in the name of my loving King Jesus Christ. Amen.

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Should Magnify Our

WORK IN PROGRESS

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes the only way to learn is through the hard times.

In the easy times we tend to take things more lightly, especially concerning our obedience to Jehovah.

My life is a testimony to that.

It is in the hard times I learned the most and grew the most. They definitely were not enjoyable but I praise Jehovah for putting through them.

One good aspect of this type of learning is our appreciation for our Heavenly Teacher for the manner in which He teaches us the lesson. He does so in a manner in which the lesson will never be forgotten.

The other is that we more mature Christians use these lessons to pass on to those not as mature as us, hopefully to prevent them from making the same errors as us. For those going through the lessons, it encourages them to submit to the teachers instructions.

“Affliction comes to the believer not to make him sad, but sober; not to make him sorry, but wise. Even as the plow enriches the field so that the seed is multiplied a thousandfold, so affliction should magnify our joy and increase our spiritual harvest.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with so many afflictions. Although they were not enjoyable at the times, they were necessary to mature me in my walk towards You in Heaven. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to not only endure them but to prosper because of them. I praise You in the name of He who endure the worse affliction of all for me 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

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
