Those Who Represent The.

HEAVENLY STRENGTH

 Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you. Luke 10:19,20   Holy Bible Amplified Version               

I do not believe Christ is referring to the creature but to those who represent the creatures.

So for example, the serpent represents satan while the scorpions represent those whose tongues and hands represent wicked ones out to do you harm.

The harm mentioned is not referring to physical harm but rather spiritual harm. They are out to poison your relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

The wicked ones are out to kill your love for them.

The authority is given by Christ in His name and the power comes through the Holy Spirit.

Because Jesus is the Supreme Power satan and his minions do not have the power to harm us (they can tempt us but never physically, mentally, nor spiritually harm us).

They are constantly around us which is why it is so important to stay close to Christ.

If we stray away from Jesus we are easy pickings for satan and his henchmen. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing this dedicated servant of Your with the necessary tools to defend myself successfully against the serpents and scorpions that come my way through the day. I glorify You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Eternity Offers Only Two.

kigndom of heaven

I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse Deuteronomy 30:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is so confusing.

That is what I used to say about life. There are so many options and so many voices. Which one do I listen to? This one says this and that one says that (I find that particularly true in health care). It makes the head spin.

After accepting Christ as my Savior He slowly showed me that to do so also makes Him my King and me His free will servant. Many of the things He instructed me to do were difficult. But that was to teach me to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. Many things seemed crazy, that was to teach me to trust Him implicitly in my life. Through the course of these decades long lessons He was slowly teaching me the most important lesson of all though: That is to continuously grow deeper in a loving relationship with Him. The ultimate goal will be to share eternity with the one I love and worship the most.

In the world there is so much confusion because they listen to the flawed doctrines of others instead of listening to and obeying the pure wisdom that only comes from the Holy Spirit. This is the rough trial to Heaven, all others only lead to eternal misery in Hell.

“Life offers many choices. Eternity offers only two.”  Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with being a guiding light in my life in this dark confusing world. I exalt You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. AMEN

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

 How Much Less Will We

furnace of hell

 See to it that you do not refuse [to listen to] Him who is speaking [to you now]. For if those [sons of Israel] did not escape when they refused [to listen to] him who warned them on earth [revealing God’s will], how much less will we escape if we turn our backs on Him who warns from heaven? Hebrews 12:25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Be fair warned. Just as Jehovah gave ample warning to the Israelites before the hammer came down on them hard so too does He warn us. You ignore Him at your own peril.

Now I do not believe Jehovah will curse you with plagues however what He does is just tell you: “Okay, you refuse to listen to me and stubbornly insist on going your own ways, fine. I will just step back and allow you to reap the rewards of your destructive lifestyle.” Then you will suffer like you have never suffered before. In your suffering you will cry out unto Him to deliver you from these catastrophes but just as you turned your back on Him and refused to listen to Him, so too does He turn His back on you and refuse to listen to you.

Now if you repent with sincerity (repent means you admit what you did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness and stop doing it), He is loving and will forgive you. You must however still pay the price for your wicked ways. So say you murdered someone and are on death row. He will not deliver you from the execution but when you die you will not face His eternal judgment for that crime when you sincerely repent.

I have seen it so much in my life.

Some folks when they were young they laughed and thought they were getting away with it but they paid a very heavy price for their sins in their elder years. It aches the heart to watch to happen to those you know but they are harvesting what they planted. 

Turn your back on Jehovah and He will turn His back on you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 Prayer: I pray my Beloved Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) that I may never be idiotic enough to turn my back on You. I have witnessed the terrible consequences of such foolishness and it fills me with terror. As well my love, our loving relationship is the most priceless treasure You have blessed me with and I would be left in a spiritual lonely desert if I was ever that stupid to turn my back on You. I sincerely request this in the name of the light that guides me into an ever deeper sphere of Divine love with You Jesus Christ. Amen  

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

 It Was Not Easy for Him.

he leads us

“Have you thought about His (God) handling of the gospel? God needs to get a message out to the human race, without which they will perish…forever. What’s the plan? First, He starts with the most unlikely group ever: a couple of prostitutes, a few fishermen with no better than a second-grade education, a tax collector. Then, he passes the ball to us. Unbelievable.” — John Eldredge        

Me, I was a shy, timid, sick boy.                                            

Through the course of forty years Jehovah has taken me all over my country Canada and helped me bring the lost to Him. He took me to the forest in the mountains and on the prairies tree planting in extremely difficult and dangerous situations                                                                         

He was with me through a long dangerous, and many times painful four thousand bicycle journey from western coastal Canada, through the western coastal United States and down through Mexico to be a medical missionary. He did this three winters in a row.    

He then took me all over China in the course of ten years.                                         

Now He has brought me home after forty years to be a live in care giver for my mother, which ain’t easy.                                                                                    

It was not easy for Him.                                                                                

There was little self confidence, which is good.                                                    

There was little confidence in Him, which was good because little by little He drew me ever closer to Him.                                                                                  

So, do not believe the devils lies that you are not educated enough, you are not a good speaker, you are shy,you are, you are, the list goes on and on.                         

When Jehovah calls you into service, and He will, have faith in Him and His abilities not your own. Watch the amazing things He will do in you and through you.                              

Then I will give to the peoples [clear and pure speech from] purified lips [which reflect their purified hearts], That all of them may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him shoulder to shoulder (united).Zephaniah 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for taking a misfit like me and molding me into a servant of Your and for all the amazing work You have accomplished in me and through me. I exalt Your awesome name. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Will Guide Them

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 The integrity and moral courage of the upright will guide them, But the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them. Proverbs 11:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have experienced in my own personal life the benefits of having Godly integrity. Integrity means adherence to moral and ethical principals and being honest. The best place to learn and incorporate integrity is in the Bible under the tutorship of the Holy Spirit. He has never led me wrong.

Yes many times it seemed as if I was standing alone against an overwhelming strong number but stood my ground.

I may not have gained physically but certainly gained tremendously in my relationship with my Heavenly Beloved (which is all that matters to me).

Yes most times it took courage but it also took the power of the Holy Spirit to help me have the strength and fortitude to stand upon the rock of righteousness when all was against me. We have all heard the saying:short term pain for long time gain.

As well I have witnessed the opposite. Short term gain for long time loss. I have witnessed many treacherous folks take unscrupulous means to get gain only to lose it all and suffer worse than when they began when the time of righteousness comes a calling.

I take the high ground because it ultimately leads to Heaven. All others lead to Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with Your wise tutorship to learn and incorporate into my life Your Divine integrity. It has blessed me with avoiding much paspiritual wealthin and sorrow in my life and has brought me ever closer to You as You continue to instruct me in the path of righteousness. I exalt You in the name of He who always walked in righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Be Thankful

In every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I desired to make raised flower beds for my aged mother who can no longer bend over to work in her flower beds and she loves her flower beds and working in them. I wanted ten skids and my friend suggested he could get a truck and we could pick them up the next day, but because the truck he wanted to borrow was not available he phoned and informed me we could only get three.

There was disappointment and anger in my heart because we agreed upon ten.

After talking with Jehovah became I became grateful for what was given and for my friends help and waited for him to come pick me up the next day to get the skids.

The friend showed up with five skids in the back of his SUV the next afternoon. When we went to the place where the skids were supposed to be they were all gone. He drove to the place where he saw the skids on the side of the road during his morning walk and we got five more.

Because of that the raised garden could be made ( even though it was not as big as I wanted. I wanted to build a pyramid raised garden but the skids were too small).

As well there was enough skids to use as the base to make another bigger raised garden using a discarded dresser drawer. Another blessing was Jehovah giving me an idea on how to make more raised gardens as a border for our flower beds using materials around the house that I never thought of.

As a consequence there was not a need for so many skids.

When we desire something but Jehovah does not give us what we want but are to still be appreciative. Then Jehovah multiplies His blessings upon us.

A faithful (right-minded) man will abound with blessings. Proverbs 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing for me the material necessary to build a monument of love towards Your cherished daughter, my mother and for the brother who graciously helped me. I thank You in the name of He who was grateful for the blessings of the disciples You sent unto Him 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.
