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

Not Good Enoughs.

HE IS THE BOSS

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever worked for the “not good enoughs”?

These are ungrateful folks that no matter how hard you try it is never good enough for them. I used to be a people pleaser. It was not that their praise was needed for my ego but that there was a genuine desire to make others happy. It was and still is devastating to try your best only to experience their gratitude by slowly slicing it apart as with a knife with their complaints on how it is not good enough.

Now, that I am a more mature Christian, I seek Jesus’ pleasure not mans. He does not make a big deal out of it but there is a gentle loving feeling in the heart when He softly whispers:” Well done My good and faithful servant.” That is more rewarding than anyone else could say or do.

Work for Christ nor man. He is much easier to work for and much more appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6 for blessing me with the honour of being Your obedient servant. I am filled with such wonderful joy when You esteem my dedication unto You in daily service to the King I adore. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Following the Example Of

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. Ephesians 5:2 Holy Bible New Living Translation

We imitate that which we admire. Joseph a son of Jehovah

True Christians admire, adore and worship Christ. As such, they are not haughty nor self righteous. They are humble ( which means we do not put ourselves above nor below others. We are confident in who we are in Christ so we do not need to impress anybody. ), loving, compassionate and respectful.

When folks see this in a selfish self centered world they are drawn to us like bugs to a light. That is how we imitate Christ, which is the only way to attract the little lost sheep to the Great Sheppard flock.

“There is not a hint of one person who was afraid to draw near him [Jesus]. There were those who mocked him. There were those who were envious of him. There were those who misunderstood him. There were those who revered him. But there was not one person who considered him too holy, too divine, or too celestial to touch. Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the casual manner in which we can commune together. Please bless me with this ability to emulate You when in the midst of the lost so they can relax and be open to receiving Your message of a desire to bless them with a loving relationship with You as You have blessed me. I sincerely request this in Your beautiful name. 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

We Would Not Believe It.

 For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am glad Jehovah did not inform me of His long term plans for me because I would not have believed it. Many of them would have been terrifying to me because He walked with me through some pretty difficult and dangerous times. They had to happen to make me grow in faith, reverence, love and respect for Him.

As well the plans He had for me to be in service unto Him were unimaginable to a quiet country boy like me.

“Sometimes God does not tell us His plan because we would not believe it anyway.” Carlton Pearson

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )for blessing me for with holding Your Divine plans for me because they would have been too terrifying and beyond my capability to understand them. Thank You for the incredible things You have accomplished in my life and through my life through those plans. I exalt You in Your awesome name. 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.

Why Would We Be?

Even so, consider yourselves to be dead to sin [and your relationship to it broken], but alive to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus. Romans 6:10-12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We would we be?

Why would we be in deeper companionship with Christ the more we meditate upon the cross?

Here is what I do every morning: in the part of the morning prayer where I give thanks unto Jesus I take a swallow of red wine vinegar after thanking Christ for shedding His Holy blood, suffering and dying for my filthy sins. When the vinegar goes down it burn the throat, as this happens I think of my Beloved screaming :” My god, my God why have You deserted me.” and think of the time when I left Jehovah and contemplate how painful it was. Just think of how it felt for Christ how enjoyed deep love with His Heavenly Father to have deserted Him in His time of suffering.

Then the wine burns my stomach ( because it is empty in the morning) and reflect of the Roman soldier piercing my Beloveds side. Finally there is a warmth that envelopes my entire heart. I reflect upon the piercing agony Jehovah must have felt watching this horrendous event take place.

After that I eat a sweet cookie and reflect on the sweetness of communion with my Heavenly Beloved.

The more we meditate upon what Jesus suffered on that cross the more we appreciate, respect, love and adore Him.

Because of this I am blessed with unbroken fellowship with my Heavenly Beloved every moment of every day.

“The more we meditate on the cross, the deeper our companionship and knowledge gets of Christ the Lord.”  Pishoy Kamel

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for Your amazing sacrifice that has enabled me to receive forgiveness for my filthy sins and therefore the privilege of becoming a member of Your Divine family. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen.

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

I Will Not be Listening.

 “So when you spread out your hands [in prayer, pleading for My help], I will hide My eyes from you; Yes, even though you offer many prayers, I will not be listening. Your hands are full of blood!” Isaiah 1:15The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When your hands are soaked with the blood of innocent folks do you absurdly believe He will listen to your prayers?

What blood, I have not murdered anyone you may say. Maybe not with a knife or pistol but have you cheated anyone lately? Because of this could it be that you are taking food from their mouth because they now do not have money for groceries?

Have you viciously gossiped about anyone lately? Does this not pierce their hearts like a knife while you wickedly laugh at their discomfort? What if it drove them to suicide? Their blood is on your hands.

Have you ever said a mean cruel word to someone just to intentionally hurt them? Again that is like piercing their hearts with a knife?

Every time you intentionally hurt someone with your words or actions that is like piercing their hearts. That blood is on your hands in the eyes of Jehovah and your prayers are like dung to Him.

How can a God of love bless anyone with a heart of vile hate and greed? Your prayers are in vain Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Roi. ( You are the God who sees ) correct me when I begin to stray from Your holy code of conduct because I never want to depart from our loving relationship. I cherish the times we spend every day in communion. I humbly ask this in the name of He who always walked in accordance to Your sanctified manner of conduct Jesus Christ. Amen.

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