Keeping Our Eyes On

 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have travelled a lot and taken only two routes.

The first one was to wing it. Let’s just go and see where the road will take us. Although it was adventurous, it was also very dangerous at times and there were many times I had to back track.

On the other hand, when I followed a map the journey was a lot less stressful and unnecessarily complicated.

Once we become Christians we depend upon Jesus to lead us where our Heavenly King desires His free will servant to go. During the journey He initiates circumstances which will strengthen our faith, trust, in Him. This causes us to trust Him more, respect Him more, appreciate Him more and most importantly, to love Him more.

How can you see where you are going? With keeping your eyes on the map and Jesus is the map? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Roi (Psalms 23:1 The LORD My Shepherd ) for constantly guiding this gullible sheep that could easily be led astray if left on my own. Thank you for blessing me with fine tuning me to be ever more mature every day. I praise You in Your wise name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah T

A Dangerous Trap

COMES BACK

 

The mouth of an immoral woman is a dangerous trap; those who make the Lord angry will fall into it. Proverbs 22:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament  

I have noticed that immoral folks are demanding ungrateful creatures. They only call you when they want something and never help you in return.

Perhaps that is Jehovahs manner in which He delivers justice to those who anger Him.

The way to anger Jehovah is to be selfish, self centered and cold hearted.

Be careful of how you treat others because Jehovah will allow someone worse to come into your life and give you back seven times worse than what you gave another. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

The wicked conceive evil; they are pregnant with trouble and give birth to lies.They dig a deep pit to trap others, then fall into it themselves. The trouble they make for others backfires on them. The violence they plan falls on their own heads. Psalms 7:14-16The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

The Lord is known for his justice. The wicked are trapped by their own deeds. Psalm 9:16 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) bless me to live a life of integrity, compassion and respect. I have a deep desire to imitate my Beloved best friend Jesus Christ. I humbly request this in His amazing name. Amen.

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Photo and article @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2019

I was Convicted

delightful panoramic water dance

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Recently I was convicted while reading a morning devotional. The Holy Spirit convicted me that the words of my mouth did not match the meditation of my heart. Someone was terribly abusive to me and I said some very unchristian words in anger and frustration (the abuser did not care that her actions caused me great physical pain).

I promptly repented and even though she is still abusive my meditations with my Beloved are in love again.

It does not matter how much anyone is physically and or mentally abusive to me. All that matters is my loving obedient relationship with my Heavenly Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always keep my focus on our loving relationship no matter how abusive those around me are. It is the anchor that hows me close to You in those horrible storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who calmed the violent storm on the seas for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

When We Pray For

praying in chinese church

 Pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

How can praying for others heal you?

I believe that when we pray for others it heals our spirit of hatred,anger and fear ( I know it does me). In the process that causes less stress upon the mind and body. This can cause healing as the body repairs itself from the tension of the stress.

I have seen many angry, spiteful folks full of disease while also seeing many prayerful folks very healthful. especially, in their elder years.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rapha (God my healer) that in some mysterious way when I pray out of love and concern for others it brings healing to me. I praise You in the name of the greatest Healer Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Brings Me into His

Give burden to Jesus

 Weeping may last through the night but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Satan is darkness, Jesus is light.

When the darkness of fear, anger, sadness and worry envelope me, I call out to my loving Heavenly best friend. He lifts me out of satans darkness and brings me into His loving, healing, comforting assuring brilliant light.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit remind me of how You walked with me through oh so many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares and dangers in the past so that I will have complete confidence in you whenever they come upon me in the future. Because this will cause my heart to sing for joy knowing you are there, you care and you have total control over the situation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing my heart with exceeding joy as I remember Your brilliant light that guided me through the darkest hours of my life I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It is Indeed the Coldest and Darkest

GODS ASSURANCE

 

Just Before. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. Matthew 14:25 The Holy Bible New International Version

Being an avid outdoors man all my life I can certainly attest to the fact that it is indeed the coldest and darkest just before dawn.

From decades of experience it seems to me like Jesus always comes to us in our trials and tribulations, sorrows and danger when it is its most intense.

I think the reason for that is most of us chose to face our giants alone being independent.

It is only as they get progressively worse and all else fails that we go to Christ.

One of the benefits of this is our great and deep appreciation for His rescue.

Unfortunately for us the lesson of depending upon Him for salvation must be repeated numerous times before we accept the fact that it is unto Christ that we must always go whenever any trouble comes our way.

Finally learning that lesson and going to Christ first has prevented my storms from becoming full blown destructive typhoons.

Just remember Jesus has been there, Jesus cares. He is always willing to help but we must first call out to Him and then obey His instruction for us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:18 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Jesus’ love is the bright healing light that evaporates that darkness of sorrow, worry, pain, loneliness and fear. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with being the beacon of love, strength and assurance during my darkest hours. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This Is a Dangerous Action

FURNACE OF HELL

 

 While you have the Light, believe and trust in the Light [have faith in it, hold on to it, rely on it], so that you may become sons of Light [being filled with Light as followers of God].”Jesus said these things, and then He left and hid Himself from them. John 12:36 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because the people refused to believe in Jesus He walked away from them. This is a dangerous action we all need to comprehend, especially those that claim to be His followers.

Without faith, which means trust, in Christ in every aspect of your life you are useless unto Him and He will walk away from you.

Now, we all have doubts but overriding them is the belief that Jesus is real an a part of our life.

When we are baby Christians it is a common occurrence to have weak faith. Faith comes from experience.

But, we are expected to continuously grow in our faith as Jehovah continuously shows Himself faithful unto us.

To do anything less is to deny Jehovah’s faithfulness unto you which is a horrendous sin. He will only tolerate it so long and then wash His hands of you and walk away. This is the most disastrous occurrence that can occur in anyones life and has Hell for its reward.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to this child of Your with whom You so deeply love. Please bless me to continue to strengthen my faithfulness in You as this draws me ever closer into Your loving arms. I humbly request this in the name of He who was faithful unto You all the way to the suffering, humiliating cross Jesus Christ, my Beloved Savior. Amen

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

Let a Man Meet A.

Let a man meet a[ferocious] bear robbed of her cubs Rather than the [angry, narcissistic] fool in his folly. Proverbs 17:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                           

Folly is described as: the state or quality of being foolish; lack of understanding or sense, a foolish action, practice and a costly and foolish undertaking. Another word for foolish is stupid.

A narcissist is described as  tending to derive gratification from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes.

Speaking from personal experience a narcissist does not love anybody or anything as much as they love themselves. They are always bragging about themselves and thrive on being the constant center of attention. They are very shallow and easily offended. When offended they become very cruel and constantly imagine the wicked manner in which the offender will pay with shame and humiliation. They take it to the extreme.

Beware of them.

Yes they can be dangerous, although most times they are not.

They have no sympathy for their victims and delight in watching them suffer. Whenever I encounter one and they share with me their wicked schemes I merely point out to them the folly of it in the consequences they will suffer far outweigh the satisfaction they will receive and I will have no part of it.

If I am the one they intend upon inflicting with their foolish perverted revenge I explain to them  with confidence and strength that there is a God in Heaven and He passes sentence that the wicked shall be punished seven times seven for their wickedness.

It shocks them. It is a coin toss how they will react.

Sometimes they will stay away in fear and sometimes they foolishly pursue their evil schemes. Yes sometimes they succeed but in the end it costs them far more than they gain when they suffer Jehovahs harsh mighty hand of justice.

Narcissist’s pretend to be strong but really are weak, stand up to them or they will bully you.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to be by your side and no narcissist can stand up to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi  (The Lord is my Refuge) for blessing me with the refuge of Your words and guidance to deal properly with all the narcissist’s that enter my life. I exalt You in the name of He who dealt harshest of all with these plagues upon society Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They Are Real and They Are Dangerous.

DIVINE STRENGTH

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 New King James Version

Satanic and demonic warfare is very real and very dangerous.

Demons are very intelligent and very tricky. Indeed, many times people believe they are talking with Jehovah’s angels when in fact, they are talking with demons.

They are stronger than us and can easily overpower us.

A good personal example of this is when I used to feel demons pushing me into a liquor store to buy beer and get drunk. It was as if invisible hands were literally pushing me in and buying the beer. Then while sobering up, they would viciously taunt me, laughing and saying: “Look at you, you filth. You believe you are a child of God. How can He who is holy love a filth drunk?”

The only way this was conquered was to cry out to Jesus to save me because they were too strong for me. When I did that they instantly left me and I have not had a drink in years. They had no choice; they HAD to leave me alone.

 

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 New King James Version

Demons can exist in people so be careful with fortune tellers and astrologers. Demons can trick us by talking through psychics and astrologers.

Demons are individual and have memories. When they see a weakness in you like an addiction and you try to kick it, they will leave you alone and then come back with more demons.

When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order.  Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.” Luke 11 24-26

Demons will do anything to separate you from Jesus and keep you separated from Him.

God has said,” Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:4

Prayer: Please Jehovah Sabaoth (God, the commander of armies) send Your mighty angels to defeat santans minions when they attack me. I know I can depend upon the Holy Spirit within me but sometimes it is necessary for You to send Your angelic armies like You did for the Israelites during the six day war. I sincerely ask this in the name of the mighty king who defeated the demons when he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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