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.

Gratitude is Not Only

Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]. Psalm 100:3Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Gratitude is described as acknowledgement of having received something good from another.

Yes we are to know that Jehovah made us and not being insulting idiots and believe that we are descended from monkeys. We are to recognize which means we are to have a clear understanding that we are a Divine creation.

To me that fills me with gratitude and meaning.

After all, how many folks go around and wonder why they are here?

I know why I am here. I was created to be blessed with a Divine loving relationship with our Heavenly Father. I am His and He is mine.

In gratitude I am obedient unto His direction in my life. This gives me Divine purpose.

Again, how many folks wonder what their purpose in life is.

I know mine.

It is to serve an amazing King.

For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:8-10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This leads me to a virtuous life.

Virtue means a conduct that conforms to an accepted standard of right and wrong.

Whose standard of what is right or wrong will you trust, Jehovahs or the worlds? Look around at the world and see if you want to live that type of life, I certainly do not.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” — Cicero

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my life a heart dedicated to nurturing a loving obedient live dedicated to You. I love You and praise You in the name of my Beloved brother in Your Heavenly family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Being Transformed Into

 

And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our Savior and King, He sends the Holy Spirit to transform us from being a dirty filthy rag into a new beautiful Divine creation.

This does not mean that when we accept Christ there will be a hallelujah moment and then we can continue on as we were before.

It does mean a lifetime commitment unto His will in our lives. It means allowing Him to burn off the dross (bad habits and attitudes which hinder our relationship with Him and our maturity in our Christian walk).

Speaking from experience it is not pleasant but you will praise Him for it every day after its completion. It does not mean we are to sit on our butts and expect the Holy Spirit to do all the work. It does mean a lifetime commitment to making the effort ourselves to become Holy children of God. Many times we will be expected to make the effort by ourselves as we mature because that is a process of maturity as well.

“God invites us to come as we are, not to stay as we are.”Tim Keller

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit M’Kaddess (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with teaching me and helping me to grow into a sanctified child of my Beloved and to lead a life pleasing unto Him. I exalt Thee in the name of He who showed us all how to lead a sanctified life pleasing unto our loving Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Like a Rose Blooming In.

                                                   

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and the One who rescues me; My God, my rock and strength in whom I trust and take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower—my stronghold. Psalm 18:2 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One time while camping in the desert the winds picked up so bad I had to cup my hands over my face or else I would have been smothered to death.

That is what it is like sometimes when the world comes howling at us with TV, movies, music and society all screaming that sin is good and righteousness is foolishness.

That is when we need the Holy Spirit to come and wrap Himself around us and assure us we are walking the right walk.

In the morning there was huge red butes that when the sun rose they looked like giant fingers slowly moving to clamp onto my and squeeze me to death (or so it seemed).

So too can it seem as if there are pressures from the world to conform to their wickedness or they will destroy us in rage.

That is when we need the Holy Spirit to come plants the sweetness of Christs love for us with in our hearts and bloom like the most beautiful flower with in us.

One time while hiking along a trail by the ocean I decided to climb into a cave in a huge rock. Little did I realize that the high tide came all half way up that rock. That night a storm broke out and the waves reached the lip of the cave but never entered in.

So too is Christ there for us to take shelter in during the storms in our lives.

You will never find Jesus so precious as when the world is one vast howling wilderness. Then he is like a rose blooming in the midst of the desolation, a rock rising above the storm.” — Robert Murray M’Cheyne

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Sel’i (The Lord is my Rock) for blessing me with Your firm foundation and sanctuary during the raging storms in my life. Thank you that through this my faith and gratitude for You has blossomed into a beautiful creation of which You are well pleased. I praise You in the name of the most beautiful gardener of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

That is foolish.

 Let no one defraud you of your prize [your freedom in Christ and your salvation] by insisting on mock humility and the worship of angels Colossians 2:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some folks claim they have guardian angles to help them and to protect them. They call upon them and depend upon them.

That is foolish. Yes angels are real.

Yes angels help us.

Yes angels protect us.

But, who do you think is wiser, an an gel or the creator of angles?

So why do you depend upon an angel when you should be dependent upon the Holy Spirit who is supremely wise.

Who do you think can off you better protection, and angel or Jehovah God who created the angels?

Then why do you foolishly depend upon angels for protection? Not only that but if Jehovah tells the angles not to help you do you think they will come to help you because you pray to them?

Worshiping angels is making an idol out of them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Another danger is that the devils minions can and do disguise themselves as angels of light so if you foolishly depend upon them you will be lead down a trail of disaster while if you depend upon Jehovah who guides you in righteousness because He loves you you will avert a lot of danger.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your creation of angels to help me but keep me focused on worshiping the creator and not those that He has created. I meekly request this in the name of the co-creator of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Best Cathedral I Have Attended

 And the glory and majesty and splendor of the Lord will be revealed Isaiah 40:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The best cathedral I have attended was Jehovahs.

To the world it is called nature but to the Christian it is called “Gods Cathedral”.

The reason for this is because it is in nature that Jehovah reveals the most of His splendor, majesty, glory and awesome beauty. That is the reason “I come to the garden” is so relevant to me. Because, when I am in nature that is when I am the closest unto my Heavenly Beloved like the song says. It does not matter if it is on the shore of a lake or ocean, walking through the forest or a meadow.

The sights and fragrances peel back an amazing creator who loves me and desires to have me come to His cathedral to share a conversation together with me. It may be to comfort and encourage me, it may be to offer words of guidance to me or it may be just to share time together in Holy Communion of love.

The melody of the birds and crickets choir sings of His love, indeed many times I join in with my flute playing a love song for my cherished one in Heaven. It is relaxing yet deeply intimate. Here we share close camaraderie that is available no where else.

“We live in a world starved for solitude, silence, and privacy: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship.” C.S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with sharing not only the beauty of Thy creation but the amazing privileged of spending loving communion with You in You magnificent creation. I exalt You in the name of He who I long to walk through Heavens garden with Jesus Christ my best friend. Amen.

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