To Give Them A

 My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I remember an ad that said to be all that you can be.

The only way to accomplish this is by submitting to Christ’s will in our lives not our own.

Yes we will be wealthy but it is a spiritual wealth that can never be taken from us and that is the greatest wealth of all.

GOD PROVIDES

Yes we will live a satisfying life. That does not mean a luxurious life but rather we are grateful and satisfied with the daily blessings Jehovah daily blesses us with. Yes there will be hard times and times of suffering walking with Christ but we have Him by our side walking through it with us and that is all we need. The world does not have this blessing so their suffering is so much more intensified.

We all go through hard times but those in Christ have Christ walking through it with them. Joseph a son of JehovahGOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35) The LORD Is There for always being there with me me through the raging storms and through the meadows of flowers. Most of all, I thank you that You will be there to greet me to the eternal home You have prepared for me. I praise You in the name of my best friend I eagerly desire to walk through eternity with Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Enter Fully Into that Difficult Existence

FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Spirit alone gives eternal life. John 6:63 New Living Translation Bible

There is no good going to a retreat and meditating on your belly button lint to get in touch with your inner self and then going back to everyday life. These week retreats are nothing more than a waste of money in my opinion. If you desire a spiritual life it must be a full time commitment to the Holy Spirit. You will not receive one from the Buddhists.

It will be a difficult existence because you are in a different world than those around you. You will be in tune with the voice of Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To obey these three is complete nonsense to the world.

We have the Charity of God beat within us as it beats with in the heart of He who showed us what it looks like when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. That is we are called to suffer long (this means , we are kind; we envieth not, we are not puffed up, we seek not our own, we are  not easily provoked, we think no evil, we rejoice not in iniquity, but in the truth; we bear all things, believe all things, hope in all things, endure in all things.

“The spiritual life is a stern choice. It is not a consoling retreat from the difficulties of existence, but an invitation to enter fully into that difficult existence, and there apply the Charity of God, and bear the cost.” — Evelyn Underhill

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with the strength to not only endure but to prosper during the times of suffering for You as Your precious son suffered for me. I exalt You in the name of He who gladly suffered for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Is Not Worthy of Me.

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

 And he who does not take his cross [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] is not worthy of Me. Matthew 10:38 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sounds pretty cut and dry does it not?

If you are not willing to suffer for Christ, you are not worthy of Him. How many churches or Bible study groups do you hear that preached?

Now that you have heard it are you willing to pick up your cross and when you are a Christian you can be sure you will be carrying many crosses. Although this sounds absurd it is actually a blessing for us. Because we carry the cross when it becomes too burdensome for us to carry Christ comes along side of us and helps carry it with us. That brings us into close fellowship with Him.

Suffering brings folks closer together  than good times do and who better to come closer to that Christ? Joseph a son of Jehovah

As well, when we conform to Christ’s life we live a simple uncomplicated life which bring peace of mind. Not to be constantly tormented by the material world where you never have enough or the politically correct world that changes its values quicker that the spring weather on the north west coast of Canada (the Queen Charlotte Islands).

Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me helping me carry the cross You have laid upon me to carry in my service and worship to You. No matter the agony and or the misery You are worth it. It is an honour to emulate the most beautiful best friend there could ever be and the most worthy Eternal King. I praise You in Your grandiose 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.

The Light at the Top of the Stairs.

 

 Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every night for the past few weeks when I wake up during the night there is a light that shines through the window onto me. This verse always comes to my mind.

It is the Holy Spirit confirming unto me that as a Christian I am walking in Christs Divine light in every aspect of my life. It is like second nature unto me.

When ever there comes a crisis the first thing is to automatically go to Christ in prayer and then meditate upon His Divine word. The Holy Spirit faithfully guides me to verses and their meaning which directs me to the proper manner in which to handle the situation. Whenever there is something required in my life a decision to be made the first priority to go to Christ in prayer.

Again The Holy Spirit faithfully guides me to verses and their meaning which directs me to the proper manner in which to handle the situation.

Whenever there is trouble coming my way the first priority to go to Christ in prayer.

Again The Holy Spirit faithfully guides me to verses and their meaning which directs me to the proper manner in which to handle the situation.

In every aspect of my life this process is repeated. Jesus never fails me. He always answers my prayer and guides me to the successful victory through every situation in my life like a lighthouse beam that guides a ship through treacherous waters.

Walking in the light prevents many treacherous pit falls in the darkness that surrounds every Christian. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for being the wonderful light in my life. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of life Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass 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.

At All Times Through Him

 

At all times through Him, therefore, let us at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. Hebrews 13:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

That can be a difficult one can’t it?

You are going through a divorce or death of a loved one. How can you give thanks in that circumstance?

Give thanks that through Jesus He will guide you, heal you, comfort you, encourage you and strengthen you. The world does not have this blessing.

The same can be said in every situation in life.

I thank my Beloved best Friend Jesus Christ for walking with me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I never would have made it without Him.

Whenever theses events are shared with another they are glorifying His awesome name.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with walking with me through the firestorms in my life encouraging me, strengthening me, comforting me and healing me. I extol Thee in the name of He who calmed the raging storms for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

With Great Confidence.

 

And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose For those whom He foreknew [and loved and chose beforehand], He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son [and ultimately share in His complete sanctification], so that He would be the firstborn [the most beloved and honored] among many believers. Romans 8:28-29 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Boy I sure never had that, great confidence, when enduring my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snare in my early walk with Christ.

The two questions that were constantly asked of Him were: “Why are you doing this to me? and “Where are You through all this?”

When the raging storms and fire storms had passed it was revealed that He was there. These circumstances were used to teach me valuable lessons, the most important of which was there was to be complete trust in our Savior that He was walking with it with us.

As well they were used to burn off the dross and mold me into a beautiful child of Jehovahs.

Now there is constant thanks and wonder ( at just what He is doing through this experience ) during these events.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for the awesome work You have accomplished in this difficult lump of clay. I praise You in the name of He who transformed some very difficult lumps of clay into world changing disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He is Always There.

 Your way [of escape for Your people] was through the sea, And Your paths through the great waters, And Your footprints were not traceable. Psalm 77:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There have been many times during my trials and tribulation, sorrows and snares in life that I cried out unto Jehovah to come and rescue me but believed He had deserted me. In reflection it was revealed that He is always there.

Do you think it is just a coincidence that that man or woman came into your life at just the right moment when you needed help but there was none forth coming?

When it seems as of you are walking through the desert with no job prospect do you think it is coincidence that that employment offer came along?

For me many times it was tiny ads in the newspaper that jumped out at me and would not let go until I took action on them. It always resulted in amazing accomplishments in my life. It helped me find employment, it helped me find good Christian councilors, it guided me to schools that Jehovah wanted me to attend to learn a skill that would be used in service unto Him later on. This is just but one example of Him being there without me even knowing it at the time.

There is no such thing as coincidence in the Christian walk. Joseph son of Jehovah

So, no matter what ordeal you are experiencing now and it seems as if Jehovah has deserted you take comfort child of Jehovah He is always there.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the blessing of always being with me through the numerous trials and tribulations, sorrows and snare, victories and love You graciously bless me with each and every day. I thank you in the name of He who walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do They Hate You?

  Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life-joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for your reward in heaven is great [absolutely inexhaustible]; for their fathers used to treat the prophets in the same way. Luke 6:22-23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Since becoming a Christian do you find many in your family actually hate you?

I have, it is common. Most of them will not even talk with me anymore and cannot stand to be around me. I am not a Bible thumper and shove the Bible in their faces. Yes I will correct them when they try to get me to participate in their wickedness with Bible verses and explain to them what it means. I do not condemn them, I leave that up to the Holy Spirit. I just explain to them why I will not walk that walk with them when they are selfish, self centered, conniving, and gossiping. They walk in the world and when they see me walk in righteousness they hate me because my walk convicts them of their wickedness.

The same is said with those with whom I chummed around with. They will make spiteful remarks towards me and look for any little thing to criticize me and be judgmental towards me. They will cruelly mock ( make fun of me ) me.

As they did to Christ so too will they do unto those that belong to Christ. Joseph son of Jehovah

The thing is though that since walking in Christ there is a whole lot less stress and emptiness in my life. It is filled with Divine love, joy and peace, which is something sorely lacking in their lives. A prophet is, in its simplest form, one who speaks the Word of God to the world around them.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi ( Lord my Refuge ) for blessing me with a Holy Tabernacle to take refuge in while the wicked ones are assaulting me because of my walk with You. I extol Thee in the name of He who was constantly attacked during His walk here on earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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