We Are On a Journey.

LEADS TO HEAVEN

 Be dressed and ready for active service.” Luke 12:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In the Christian life we are on a journey. Yes it is nice to think about what Heaven will be like but we need to stayed focused on where we are in the present and where Jehovah is leading us on our journey towards Heavens Gate.

We are useless to Christ if we spend our Christian life day dreaming about Heaven instead of concentrating on being Christs servant on the journey there. Joseph a servant of Christ.

On this journey many times we do not have a road map of where Christ is sending us our what our service entails. It may be a journey of being a godly husband or wife, a godly parent. It may be on a journey of your vocation as say a nurse or a waitress at a quaint restaurant.

During the course of this journey there will be many dangers, pitfalls, loneliness, and exhaustion. It is at these times we shall draw ever closer unto our Heavenly Beloved and He shall draw the closest to us. In His loving grace we shall experience His amazing love, wisdom, comfort, encouragement and power. This shall instill in us a wonder and awe of His majesty. The result of this is an ever deeper desire to trust Him on our journey to Heavens gate and desire to be a loyal bond servant ( a bond servant is one who serves out of free will) unto Him.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” — Ursula LeGuin

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with walking with me throughout this adventure called life. It is in following You that we have traveled amazing paths and accomplished incredible feats together. I praise You in the name of He who is the light that I follow of the trail of life 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

Do you see the difference ?

JESUS TALKS WITH ME

 The [presence of the] Lord was going before them by day in a pillar (column) of cloud to lead them along the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, so that they could travel by day and by night. Exodus 13:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version There appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were being distributed [among them], and they rested on each one of them [as each person received the Holy Spirit]. Acts 2:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you see the difference between the old and the new?

In the Old Testament Jehovah lead them by a light at night but He lead as a group

. In the New Testament Jehovah sends the Holy Spirit to the individual.

Now we do not have tongues of fire come upon us when we accept Christ as our Saviour and dedicate our lives to Him as our Divine King but, we do have the Holy Spirit dwell with in us. He speaks to us individually. Of course He uses other methods such as preaching and signs and wonders but it is through Him that He blesses us with insight into how this concerns our walk with Christ.

Jehovah knows you so He knows how to reveal Himself to You in a way in which you will understand. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for blessing me with the privilege of having The Holy Spirit dwell with in me. He is the ever present comforter, encourager, teacher, guidance councillor and strengthener. With out Him it would have been impossible for You to accomplish all the amazing feats You have and continue to do in my life and through my life. I exalt You in the name of He with whom look forward to dwelling with in Heaven, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There is No Other

JEHOVAHS CARE

 Most certainly God is with you, and there is no other, No other God [besides Him]. Isaiah 45:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been many hard times in my life where in reflection it is revealed that is was by the hand of Jehovah that He navigated me through them. No one or nothing else could have helped me through them. There is no other god to compare with my loving Heavenly Father. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing.

There have been many times when there was bountiful blessings showered upon me that made life easy and good. It was obvious with whom these blessing came forth from. Jehovah is truly a God of bountiful blessings. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There is no god like Him.

There has been uncountable times when the pain endured was unbearable and crushing. It was my loving Fathers comforting and soothing soft voice that brought encouragement and strength to not only endure them but to prosper through them (yes, sometimes Jehovah allow us to go through the dross to remove the impurities in us to mould us into even more beautiful children of His). I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There truly is no other god like Him

There has been numberless times when I was blessed with His immeasurable love that filled every molecule in the body with total and complete joy to the extent that it felt like I was going to explode in ecstasy. There is nothing to compare with that experience. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There truly is no other god like Him.

God is a God of the present. God is always in the moment, be that moment hard or easy, joyful or painful. Henri Nouwen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me through all of my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I never would have made it without You. Thank you my Beloved Father for blessing me with communion with You. It makes my heart dance with joy every time I am in Your loving presence. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I long to spend eternity with 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

God Will Never

GODS LOVE

Here is a beautiful poem that was in my email today and I would love to share it with you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the grace of God cannot keep you,
Where the arms of God cannot support you,
Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs,
Where the power of God cannot endow you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the spirit of God cannot work through you,
Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you,
Where the army of God cannot protect you,
Where the hands of God cannot mold you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the love of God cannot enfold you,
Where the mercies of God cannot sustain you,
Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears,
Where the authority of God cannot overrule for you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears,
Where the Word of God cannot feed you,
Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you,
Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

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

He Starts With an Impossibility.

wild-tulips-growing-in-the-shade-alond-a-gentle-stream

But He said, “The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.” Luke 18:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In every major event of my growth in my walk with Christ it was always preceded by a extreme difficult time in my life. Each time the Lord was speaking to me to take a huge leap of faith in what He wanted me to do and where He wanted me to go. In obedience unto Him He orchestrated life changing alteration to my persona. Each procession involved taking what seemed like an impossible task. It was extremely challenging and painful, however in reflection I praise Him every day for His infinite wisdom, assistance, comfort and strength.

So, when, or if Jehovah is now, asking you to take that leap of faith it is strongly recommended that you step out into the unknown because it is there that He shall bless you with making Himself known to you.

“When God is about to do something great, he starts with a difficulty. When he is about to do something truly magnificent, he starts with an impossibility.” — Armin Gesswein

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your grace in using my troubles and woes to accomplish amazing feats in my life to bring glory, honour and the little lost sheep unto You. I praise You in the name of He who astounded those around Him with His fantastic grace Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What They Gave to Him, They Give to You.

the-lord-is-my-strength

Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. John 15:20 New International Version

Two words that are oxy morons: Christian and non-suffering.

Many people today have the false belief that when they give their lives to Christ it will be a cake walk and a bed of roses.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

When you commit your live to Christ you can expect to be persecuted.

Many times the worst persecution will come from your family. They will see the change in you and not like it. They will fight you to walk away from Christ. Most times this will mean you must walk away from family. It will be painful.

The same goes for friends. They will be confused as to why you have changes and will viciously mock you because of the change in your life. It will not be pleasant.

You can expect to be treated like a geek at school and work. You can expect people to go out of their way to make your life miserable.

But take heart. We have a savior who has walked that path before you so will comfort you and encourage you.

For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5 New International Version

I know, I have been there. I have had to walk away from family and friends and it was very painful.

I have been in jobs where I felt like I was the only person in the world because no one would talk with me because I was not dishonest. When that happens in a bush camp it can be very lonely.

In my agony I cried out to Jehovah and He sent the Holy Spirit who comforted, strengthened and encouraged me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for comforting and encouraging me during my times of persecution for our relationship. I consider it an honor to suffer for Your awesome name. I give thanks in the name of He who suffered all the way to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

True Christian Love Must Be

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND 

The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.] 1 John 4:8 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

True Christian love must be . . .

Blended with all our habits. A habit is formed by repetition of actions over time until they become as natural to us as breathing. Therefore we need the Holy Spirit to guide us in our daily actions to habitually exhibit Christ’s love towards others at every opportune time that comes our way.

Diffused through all our conduct. Our conduct will be a spiritual by product of our habits.

Forming our character. Our character is formed by the the Divine will and attributes of Christ who has shown us what Holy character is by His actions.

It is His morals which is formed in or hearts , minds and actions not the perverted vile worldly ones. His is to be supreme in every action we partake every moment of every day. We can only succeed in this arduous undertaking through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to which we must constantly submit to whether it is delightful or difficult. Breathing in our desires.

Christian desire is for the the glorifying of Christ and the betterment of those around us with the ultimate goal of leading them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Speaking in our words. Loves words are encouraging, healing, teaching and comforting. The only way we can attain this is by constantly requesting the Holy Spirit guide our words and obeying His direction of speech in each individual circumstance.

Beaming in our eyes. Christian love must have gentle love in our eyes not earthly lusts nor hatred of prejudice towards others Love is the most difficult action we undertake every day.

Yet, it is also Divine in its nature and Heavenly in its rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) please bless me with an abundance of Divine love to bountifully share with others so as to emulate You. May this love direct them unto the greatest love, You which is one of the greatest gifts You may bless me with. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose infinite love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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