I start my day every day going to the greatest councilor.
When But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. John 4:23 The Holy Bible, the New Living Testament
Jehovah desires that our hearts are one with Him. That is true worship.
It is not in doing good works ( although when directed by the Holy Spirit that is an act of loving obedience ).
It is not of giving money, although that is an act of loving commitment.
It is not in singing songs, although when the heart is in harmony with our Heavenly Father that is a reaction to that loving experience.
True worship is when our spirit and Jehovahs are intertwined like strands of rope. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Speaking from personal experience that is the most awesome experience you can ever be blessed with and I look forward to worshipping my Beloved Heavenly Father, Best Friend, Jesus and Amazing Teacher, the Holy Spirit, for eternity in the Heavenly home they have prepared for me.
Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend John 15:15 ) how I long to spend eternity walking and talking with You, my Beloved Poppa Jehovah and magnificent mentor The Holy Spirit. I pray that it will occur soon because my heart aches to spend eternity with You. I pray this in Your loving name. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ. Galatians 3:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Have you experienced any miracles in your Christian walk?
The Bible verse above does not apply just to first century Christians but to all, down through the ages that have committed their lives to Jesus. That includes those of us today.
One miracle I experienced was when I prayed for a man dying of cancer and three days later he was completely purged of all of it on his death bed, got up and walked out of the hospital. When my friend informed me of it, I did not believe it but the Bible says that the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective and this proved it.
We can be partakers of miracles today if we are willing to submit to Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for blessing me with privildge of witnessing and experiencing Your miracles. I thank you in the name of Your most priceless miracle 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

As Christians we are to emulate Jesus.
Just as He gave up everything for us, so too are we to be prepared to give up everything for our fellow man if called upon by Christ.
Are you willing to fast for a week so that the money that would be spent on your groceries would be used to help someone less fortunate than you?
I gave up a months salary to help pay for an life saving operation for a child whose parent were too poor to pay for it. I lived off of one package of instant soup for breakfast, one for lunch and one for supper for a month to pay for the operation.
Love is an action, not an emotion. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Would you give up wages to help someone who needed help?
I used to spend two day teaching rookies how to plant trees at the beginning of the season. That cost me my wages for those days.
Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. 1 John 3:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Would you be willing to suffer inconvenience to help others?
When a missionary in Latin America. Instead of living in a comfortable motel, I lived in a tent and used the money saved to buy food and medicine for the poor folks I was working with.
If you claim to be a christian and are not prepared to suffer for the good of others, you are not a Christian. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16 ) for blessing me with the most amazing loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for using me as a conduit to express Your love to others. I thank you in the name of my most loving best friend Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah
As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should! Psalm 119:7 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation
Righteous: acting in an moral way and virtuous manner ( Moral: founded on the fundamental principles of right conduct rather than on legalities, enactment, or custom, concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical) ( Virtuous: conforming to moral and ethical principles; morally excellent; upright ) Dictionary. com
We are to be grateful for the blessing of being adopted into Jehovahs family. The best manner of doing this is to live as He desires us to be.
To accomplish this we must emulate Christs demeanour. We need the Holy Spirit to teach us morality (although we all know right from wrong in its basics, He takes us ever deeper into it).
As well as the tools to live it out in our daily life.
As this new creation in Christ takes form in our mental, physical and spiritual being we become more and more virtuous.
This is not a one off experience but rather a lifetime commitment.
I have been following Christ for decades and He is still transforming me. We are a work in progress all the way up to Heavens Gate where Christ will perfect us into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Now, to the world that walks in darkness, this is extremely offensive. It is great to see someone walk with these qualities as long as they do not step upon that individuals toes.
When you are welcomed into Jehovahs family, you will be bitterly rejected by satans family including your family and old friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Believe me I have had plenty of experience where the very same man or woman that commends me for behavior with another becomes extremely offended and offensive when the same situation happens between them and me.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending the Holy Spirit Rabbi (the Holy Spirit my amazing Teacher) for enlightening me to the manner to behave as a child in Your Holy family. Thank You Holy Spirit for teaching me and helping me become the child my Loving Father desires for me to be. In the name of He who I desire the deepest to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen
Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Being a natural path practitioner for over forty years it always amazes me at the stupidity and laziness of folks. They come to me with an ailment and we talk about it. When it is suggested they make lifestyle changes they become very indignant and refuse to accept responsibility for their own lives. They would rather take a magic pill or lotion to cure them of their ailment.
The same is true with our spiritual life.
We all have area’s that need realignment but refuse to take the necessary actions to cast off the filth and put on the clean garments that Christ offers. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins and what must be done to eradicate them from our lives.
And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. John 16:8 The Holy Bible New Living Translation
But, ultimately the choice is ours on whether we will take the initiative and commitment to purge ourselves of them. We refuse to do so and then cry to Jehovah to free us from the consequences of our sin.
“Understanding is knowing what to do; wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is actually doing it.” — Tristan Gulberd
PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (Jeremiah 23:6) The LORD Our Righteousness sending The Holy Spirit to convict me when I stray and to guide me back upon the path of righteousness when I repent. He is truly the best Guidance Councilor that is constantly leading us Heaven bound. I praise You in the name of He who guided His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. Psalm 8:6-8 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament personal hygiene
Recently we are constantly being bombarded on TV news with segments about these so called “climate activists” concerned about the rising temperatures.
Okay, if you are so concerned about climate change here is my climate recipe: Instead of using soap to wash yourselves with why not use a body brush. In my opinion (and I have successfully being using them for decades now) it does a better job than soap. Talking about showers or baths , how about you only have one bath every other day. I do and there is no body odor to me. personal routine
Instead of using commercial underarm deodorant (which is harmful to your body in my opinion) why not use earth crystals which can be purchased at a health food store (yes, they are expensive but they also last for years compared to how long the commercial ones last).
Instead of using dish washing detergent why not use salt? Again, I have been doing this for years and the iodine in the salt kills the germs. While we are at it, instead of using a dishwasher why not try the old hand washing? I have never gotten sick from it.
Instead of using laundry detergent why not use baking soda? Again, I have been doing these things for decades now with no adverse effects. Instead of using the dryer why not hang up your clothes to dry? Please no immature cry babies complaining because they see their neighbors underwear. We did it for decades with no adverse affect on others so stop being so self righteous and grow up.
Instead of using fast food restaurant cutlery (throw away drinking cup and wrappers why not take in reusable containers? It is reusable so nothing is going in a landfill.
In the nice weather , if you live in a town, why not bicycle or walk to and from work? This is also a great way to relieve stress. Instead of clogging up the highways driving to and from work why not take the bus or train?
Instead of buying clothing made of polyester why not buy clothes made from wool and or cotton?
Why not grow a raised garden in your backyard or on your balcony? Why not have two rain barrels at each rain spout on your house? These will not only catch the rain and help prevent flooding but can also be used to water your garden and lawn which puts less stress on the town water supply and purification stations? Instead of using pesticides why not use organic pesticides like garlic and marigold? I do it and it works great for all kinds of pests and you get to eat fresh grown organic.
These are but a few tips to help keep our planet (and it is a planet not “mother earth, which is a cultist stupid word for our planet. It is giving a fictitious female a deity of worshiping her instead of the Creator of the earth which is satnic).
I bet most of you will not do these.
You know why?
Because, you are too lazy and do not want to make the commitment.
So instead of being self righteous and using climate change as an excuse to pump of your own over inflated ego why not get off your butts and put your money where your mouth is or shut up.
We are care takers of this planet not owners. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) Isaiah 40:28 (not “mother earth) for blessing me with the wisdom on how to make a personal commitment to caring for the paradise you have created for us (planet earth) which we are selfishly destroying. Please help others take up the same banner to help heal this planet which we were given to be care takers of. I humbly request this in the name of He who will reign on this planet after it has been healed Jesus Christ. Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared Revelation 21:1Holy Bible, New Living Testament Amen

Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version
I wanna know so I can do as my Heavenly King desires. Because I love Jesus so much I have a deep desire to know what He wishes for me to do.
We need to daily commit to seeking out the best instruction for our lives.
And, of course, the best instruction manual is The Holy Bible.
There are other resources such as on line daily devotionals like Our Daily Bread. For those who prefer to listen rather than read a fantastic resource is https://www.sermonaudio.com/main.asp Both are great.
When we dedicate ourselves to asking for instructions for the coming day with commitment to obeying the instructions given, we will find that Jehovah guides us along on our day even though many times it does not feel as if He is there.
Then, there is the big picture in which Jehovah moulds our personality which takes decades. Being a little slow at catching on at times (we all are) it means there are occasions when the information must be digested a little at a time.
As well, there is a slow process for us to serve Jesus’ big purpose.
This may take years and involve many baby steps along the way.
I love to learn but sometimes it is difficult to put that knowledge into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for the distinction of being one of Your disciples. I love to sit and listen and learn from the Holy Spirit whom You have sent to instruct me in the proper manner in which to be a revered servant of Yours. I applaud You for this favour in Your holy name. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of JehovahI
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
And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
I see ads all the time to transform folks. Maybe it is their teeth or their skin to make them look more beautiful on the outside.
We all need a transformation.
But the one we need the most can only come from The Holy Spirit. And, that transformation of course is the transformation of our spirit (not our heart). This is not a one off transformation but a lifetime one. We will be constantly metamorphosing until we reach Heavens Gate. Even then, we will still be changing our hearts and minds under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit.
For me, Jehovah has moved in stages just like going to school. Once I have passed grade one then it will be time to move on to grade two. And so on and so on. In forty years I am just past grade four (talk about a slow learner huh?).
There is no failing just repeating the lesson in a different manner until it is ingrained in our mind and spirit. He is patient and teaches us at our own pace.
Attending Jehovah Divine school of Righteousness is a life time commitment. Our graduation ceremonies will take place in Heaven with Jesus Christ handing out the awards. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the honour of being enrolled in the most prestigious school ever. Your school of holiness and righteousness. I apologize for the times I was a difficult student. Please bless me with Your ability to be such a magnificent teacher as You to those around me so they can be enrolled in Your awesome school as well. I humbly beseech You in the name of the greatest Teacher to ever bless this planet Jesus Christ. Amen
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
