Did You Know That?

GOD IS WITH US

“Now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God — all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God” (Romans 5:11 New Living Testament).

Do you know that?

Do you know that when you accept Jesus Christ as your savior He instantly becomes your best friend?

Wow!

What an awesome thought huh?

Now just as with humans in order for there to be a friendship, we need to have the same interest and desire to share time together.

Do you enjoy spending time with your best friend?

Do you read His love letters to you, the Bible on a daily basis? For a deeper understanding of His love letters may I suggest  Our Daily Journal from RBC and Our Daily Bread by RBC.

Do you listen to His love songs for you, how much time do you spend listening to Christian music? May I suggest Praise 1065 and Joy Fm (St Louis or Florida).

I would like to suggest going to church, however, from a personal experience I find too many wolves amongst the sheep there (please read 2 Timothy 3:15 to see what I experience in church).

Do you listen to His message to you? I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer.

Now what makes people friends?

Could it be because they enjoy dong the same thing?

Well what did Jesus do when He was here?

Here is His guide to enjoy camaraderie with Him

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 34-40 New International Version

Speaking from personal experience,  in Canada, I have found doing volunteer work extremely rewarding. Both, in personal satisfaction and the knowledge that is was making my best friend very happy.

So how is your relationship going with your best buddy?

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Raphael Simon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for being my best friend and honoring my with such special moments as when we walk together and talk together. I gratefully give thanks in You loving name. Amen.

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

There is No Half Way

FURNACE OF HELL

How long are you going to waver between two opinions? If Jehovah is God, follow Him! But if Baal is God, then follow him!” 1 Kings 18:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Christ will not accept anything but total worship, there is no half way with Him. Either dedicate your life totally to Him or do not waste your time because He only accepts all of your devotion.

There are many Baals in life that are thieves and steal worship that only belongs to Jesus in many Christians lives.

Many worship sensuality,it pollutes in movies, music and on TV. They change bed partners more than they change their underwear. What is the end of this destructive god you worship? You will not get to pick your poison, syphilis, gonorrhea or aids but you do get to accept in full the reward of following this harlot all the way to Hell.

Many worship worldly pleasures like mobile phones, fancy clothes, expensive cars, and houses they cannot afford, which means they become slaves to the bank to attain these dead gods. Go ahead fool, look at these gods and say: “I love you.” and see what their reply is.

Many sacrifice their souls on the alter of material wealth. They slave away for that extra dollar because they want to depend upon this useless god to take care of them in luxury. Where are they when you have sacrificed your mind, body and spirit to them and they are taken from you like dainty snow under the blistering heat of the noon day sun.

Many treat the scriptures like dung and worship faulty worldly knowledge over Jehovahs supreme pure Divine wisdom. They mock it, call it absurd and foolishly laugh at it. Jehovah has the last laugh as His word confuses you and you realize that those who profess to be so wise are actually nit wits.

Many worship creation (putting animals on equal ground as humans. How many foolishly call infant animals babies and treat them as a child and have more devotion towards them than they do their fellow man or woman?). Oh how they wail when they have to put their gods down because of old age or disease. When you become sick or in need of help to pay your bills where are they to help you?

How many absurdly call it mother nature instead of Jehovahs creation? Can mother nature bring you rain in season, sun in season or snow in season? Yes, I have prayed for rain and the prayer was answered in the affirmative. The weather forecast indicated that mother nature was going to bring us a hot sunny day. Whose god was more reliable?

These are all idols

Jehovah refuses to play second fiddle to any of them.

“Their hearts were devoted to their idols!” Ezekiel 20:16 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There is only one idol in my life and to which I dedicate my life to. His name is Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Unto You and You alone do I swear my utmost alligence to Jehovah Eli (Lord my God). There is none equal to You much less supreme to You in my life. You are indeed the most cherished of all the treasures in my life. Thank you for this esteemed privilege in the name of He with whom I adore as much as I do You, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

And Who is Their Lovers?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

For people will be lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused], lovers of money [impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane 2 Timothy 3:2 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Why do folks have to have the latest gadget? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course. Why else do they “need” a name brand for which they pay exorbitant amounts of money for the name when a phone by another company is far less expensive will do the same thing?

Why do folks participate in charity runs or give to public displays to food banks? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course. If they truly cared would they not donate a weekly portion of their salary to said causes?

Why do folks desecrate Jehovahs creation (which is us) by covering their bodies with tattoos which in my opinion makes them look like they belong in a freak show? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course.

Self love is the root of all evil dispositions in mankind. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The list goes on and on.

These folks are shallow, self centered and insecure creatures.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Philippians . 2:3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I care not what he thinks of me or what she thinks of me nor what they think of me. I care what Christ knows about me and that is that I am His. And that is all I need to know Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) please bless me to be submissive unto Your Divine hand in molding me into the beautiful creation You intend for me to be. It is in Your eyes and Yours only that I desire to be a pleasing masterpiece. I sincerely request this in the name of He only only stayed focused on You when He walked this planet 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

Introverts are Closer To.

Early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left [the house], and went out to a secluded place, and was praying there. Mark 1:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is why I believe introverts are closer to Jehovah than extroverts.

Introverts thrive on being alone in quiet places. That is the only place to be blessed with true communion with Jehovah.

Extroverts are always busy (usually having fun) and no time to be in quiet solitude with our Beloved.

How are you to worship someone you spend little to no time with?

How are you supposed to listen to His voice if your too busy to sit quietly and listen to Him?

How are you supposed to share the wonders of His creation if you are too busy shopping or doing sports or any other activity that steal time from Him?

Us introverts thrive on solitude with Jehovah. It is the air we breathe. And, it blesses us with extreme closeness with Jehovah and His wonders. And, added benefit is that spending quiet time alone with our Beloved is good for our mental health. It melts away our anxiety, anger, worry and grief (it certainly does me) as He reassures us that everything is okay. He is taking care of it. It is good for our physical health. Because we have less stress on our minds it is beneficial for our bodies. And best of all it is fabulous for our spiritual health. Experiencing Jehovahs Divine love for us renews and strengthens our spirits.

Solitude matters, and for some people, it’s the air they breathe” Susan Cain

Prayer: All praise and glory unto You Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with always being oh so very close with me in our cherished quiet times. They are the most special times in my life. I praise You in the name of He whom is my best friend that I delight in being with as much as possible 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

For All I Have not Seen.

                                                  

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever laid out under the sky at night and looked at the stars? Have you ever tried to count them? When a child it was a summer ritual with us country kids. It is impossible for us to imagine nor understand how He did it. We feel very small and insignificant but then Jehovah speaks to us and says :”Yes I made all these stars and am awesome but my love for you is even larger than these galaxies.” How can you not trust a God like that?

Have you ever smelled and caressed a flower in the early morning dew? Its whole essence fills you with a sensation equal with being mildly intoxicated. We are in awe at His amazing creation and cannot imagine nor understand how He knew to make such beautiful creations. Have you ever wondered how a God like that cannot have such a loving heart for His cherished children? How can you not love a God like that with your life?

Have you ever watched a sunrise and or sunset over a body of water like the ocean and been completely memorized by it with time standing still. Have you ever wondered how Jehovah can set the sun at just the right angle to create such and intently amazing scene? It is beyond our knowledge or imagination how He did it. How can you not trust a God like that with your life?

When I was a tree planter in the mountains in Canada every year the atheist kids from the city would laugh at me for worshiping a make believe God. Then one day when they were planting they would look up and Jehovah would reveal His Divine beauty in nature before them. They stood still like a statute and were bedazzled by it all. They could no longer laugh at a make believe God because they has met Him in His creation.

“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” Emerson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your revealing Your awesome love, majesty and incredible intelligence through Your creation. Thank you for using these experiences to bless me with the Divine opportunity to get oh so very close with You during these momentous events. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was there helping create these amazing creation 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

Therefore We Must Be.

                                     

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Faith means to trust.

Have you ever layed out under the stars and be amazed at it all and wonder how Jehovah created them all? It is above our capabilities to understand it and we are left with nothing but faith in His Word that it is true.

Have you ever wondered why there is such importance in sharing love to make our lives complete? We cannot truly explain it, we must have faith in Jehovah’s word.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus would suffer and die for one such as you? I we look at it and think if we could or would make such a horrendous sacrifice and realize we could not it is above our comprehension that Christ did. That is why we must have faith in His word.

Have you ever wondered what Heaven is like, what it is like to be in constant communion with Christ? That takes faith to believe Jehovah is true to His word and it shall indeed be an eternal grandest event in our lives.

“Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith.” — Reinhold Niebuhr

Prayer: Oh my most grandiose Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) I am in constant awe at all of Your stupendous creation. It leaves me humbled and enormously appreciative of the love You so lavishly bless me with every day. In deep worship in the name of Your most awesome gift to me Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

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

Step by Step.

 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Once we become a Christian that does not mean we are to sit on our hands and wait for Christ to take us to Heaven.

We are to be obedient servants to our King, Jesus Christ. It will not happen over night. We are constantly on the potter wheel where He gets rid of bad dispositions in us while creating a work of art in our hearts. The Christian life is not a one time glory hallelujah event but a constant metamorphosis that continues until we get to Heaven.

“All I know is that I am a product of God and all I can do is the best I can to thank Him and honor Him and try to grow in Him, step by step.” — Bob Smith

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating me for Your Divine specific purpose and guiding me to fulfill Your plans in my life. I exalt You in the name of He who fulfilled Your desire for Him unto my salvation upon the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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