My Greatest Gift Ever.

                                          

 When I was a boy my grandma would give me a sweater every year for Christmas. Upon opening it there is disappointment, I wanted a toy. After putting it on however, I refused to take it off. Mom would have to fight with me almost every day because I always wanted to wear it. There was just something special about it that made it inseparable. What was unknown to me in my childhood innocence was that grandma would work on knitting that sweater every day for a month or two and what made it so special was the love she put into creating it. When the sweater was worn the love could be felt in it. It was the best gift ever to this child.

It pales in comparison  however to the greatest gift that is given to everyone free of charge. That gifts name is Jesus.

Jehovah loved us so much He allowed His most loved son to lower Himself to our level just so He would teach us about Jehovah and how to nurture a loving obedient relationship with Him. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by the most loving Father. I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day.

Jehovah loved us so much that even though it ripped His tender heart apart He allowed His beloved son to suffer and die for our sins so that we have the opportunity to become His children. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by my best friend Jesus Christ.

I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day. Jesus loved us so much He left His perfect loving home in Heaven to lower Himself to our level to teach us about our Beloved Father in Heaven. He loved us so much He suffered the most horrible death just so we have the most wonderful gift of all, becoming a child of Jehovah. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by my Savior Jesus Christ. I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day.

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His[One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Children, this gift is available free to all who are willing to accept it. When you do, you enter into the most fabulous loving relationship there ever was, is and will be.

If you are a child of His, be respectful and thank your Heavenly Father Jehovah and your best friend and Savior Jesus Christ for this most treasured gift every day.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with allowing Your precious Son to become Jesus Christ Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) and thank you Jesus for willingly committing Your selfless act of becoming my Holy Redeemer. I praise You in You amazing name. Amen.

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

They are Still Alive.

In Hades (the realm of the dead), being in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom (paradise). Luke 16:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In all of Jesus’ parables He always explained what they meant but here we do not see any explanation. That is because in the Old Testament it was explained numerous times the life after death . That there is a place where the spirit goes after death. It is not Heaven or Hell but a place where the spirit awaits final judgment. Therefore those that have died, they are still alive in spirit. The Jews knew this so there was no need for Jesus to explain it to them.

This also shows the charlatans that claim they can talk with the dead.

Jehovah places them in that place where they shall remain until the Day of Judgment.

There is no communion with the dead with the living.

It also shows how those that claim that all those who die go to a pleasant place after death. They claim there is no punishment for the wicked ones deeds in his life on earth.

When we die there is still a continuing of life in the spirit. One is a place of pleasant experience, the other other one of torment.

The question is which place are you going to spend time in until the final judgment.

Then Abraham breathed his last and he died at a good old age, an old man who was satisfied [with life]; and he was gathered to his people [who had preceded him in death]. Genesis 25:8Holy Bible Amplified Version

This states that Abraham went to his people. How could he go there if there is no living spirits to go to?

“Oh, that You would hide me in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead) Job 14:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

To the people of the Old Testament Sheol is a place where the spirit goes which means that death does not terminate human existence.

So yes brothers and sisters, your loved ones, they are still alive, not physically but spiritually. No we cannot talk with them nor they with us.

If they died in Christ that should fill us with joy because we will see them in Heaven when we get there and we shall know them and they shall know us. Think of someone dear to you that has gone on a journey and has been gone for a year or more. Think of how your heart dances for joy when they come home and you have not seen them for a long time. That is what it will be like when we are reunited with them in Heaven.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless me with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and strength to educate others that there is eternal damnation for those who reject you. On the other hand I daily eagerly anticipate dwelling in Your house for eternity and being in Your loving presence of infinity. I humbly ask this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which Will do You Have?

Serve the Lord with gladness and delight. Psalm 100:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The world says not Thy will but my will be done. The Christian says not my will but Thy will be done. Joseph son of Jehovah

Your will leads to Hell for only Christ holds the keys to Heavens gate. Those who only serve self will be forbidden entrance into a place of love, joy and peace. Their rewards will be eternal damnation of hate, sorrow and torment. The self serving shall be cast into an eternal Hell of damnation surrounded by wicked ones crying in a chorus of utter agony ,their hearts filled with burning coals of torment and their masters shall be cruel wicked demons which shall torment them in eternal darkness.

Jehovahs will leads to the bright light of Heaven gate. Only Christs free will servants are permitted entrance to His Divine paradise He has predestined for us. There you will be welcomed with open loving arms and a crown made especially for you by Christ. There you will be surrounded by love of our master and our fellow servants. Your heart shall continuously be overflowing with joyous praise towards our Beloved. Peace shall envelope your heart like a warm blanket warms the body on a cold night.

Which will do you have? Be careful your eternity depends upon it.

The world says look at what I have done. The Christian says Look how Jehovah has blessed me. Joseph son of Jehovah

Being self centred only leads to a polluted river of selfishness of which the self centered must drink. It is the poison which kills love and nurtures hatred, greed, jealousy and bitterness. They shall drink copious amounts of this vile liquid. It shall kill their soul with a slow bitter death.

The more grateful the Christian is towards His loving Heavenly Father, His Divine Heavenly King and his amazing Holy Teacher the more they shall reward him with wisdom of their character and the manner in which the Christian shall enter into the Holiest of Holies ( a place of close Divine shared love with the Trinity and the Christian). This shall spur the Christian on to obey His Master more and more and shall cause His heart to sing songs of praise and glory to the giver of these blessings. It is all his mind and spirit craves for. The world is but rubbish compared to the glory our Beloveds love towards us.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the opportunity to serve such a magnificent King such as You. May my motto always be: ‘Not my will but Thy will be done oh my King. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do and to say that all glory, honour and praise may be given unto You.’. I praise You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

The Lord Favours

The Lord favours those who fear and worship Him [with awe-inspired reverence and obedience] Psalm 147:11Holy Bible Amplified Version

It may not seem like it many times in our walk with Christ that He actually favours us but let us look at it.

When hard times come, and they always do to both those of Christs and those who are not, we have the assurance that the Holy Spirit is there with us to comfort us, strengthen us and guide us through them.

When sorrow comes into our lives, as it always does to everyone from time to time, we have a comforter there who will comfort us, assure us and fill us with Divine love while those in the world do not .

When trials and tribulation comes our way, as it does to everyone from time to time, we have a Divine guide to help us through them while encouraging us and teaching us valuable lessons through them while those in the world do not.

When we go through times of loneliness, as all of us do from time to time, we have a Divine presence there to comfort us and love us while those in the world do not.

And, most importantly, when death comes a knocking at our door, as it does to everyone, we will have an angel to take our hand and escort us to a beautiful Heavenly home while those in the world do not.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for the amazing abundant blessings You have daily blessed me with. I am so much in awe, reverence, respect and love with You for Your Heavenly gifts bestowed upon this cherished child of Yours. I exalt You in the name of the greatest gift You have blessed mankind with Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Focus to See the Light.

weary

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer from trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference between the ones walking in darkness and those of us that are walking in the light is that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, cares for us and about us.

We have a choice. We can carry the world on our shoulders, or we can say, “I give up, Lord; here’s my life. I give you my world, the whole world.” –Bruce Larson

They have no one that has the perfect healing touch. Jesus loves you.

Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we suffer the loss of a loved one we can always take our pain and sadness to Jesus. Do not forget how he weeped at His friends grave.

When we have lost our homes do not forget that Jesus was homeless.

When we are sick do not forget the sick Jesus healed.

When we have been betrayed do not forget how one of His own disciples betrayed Him. When our family and or friends reject us because of our walk towards our heavenly home do not forget how Jesus’ own family rejected and bitterly mocked Him.

When we suffer from exhaustion do not forget how exhausted Jesus was from his preaching and healing.

When we are facing death from a slow disease killer do not forget how Jesus knew about the type of death He must suffer.

Because Jesus walked amongst us He has experienced everything we have and so much more.

Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. —George Müller

So when we are experiencing our difficulties remember to focus on He who is the light of the world. He will comfort you, heal you, encourage you and walk with you through it all because He loves you.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. –Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my world with Your Divine love, assurance, comfort and strength in my darkest moments. I praise You for this blessing in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Reliable and Trustworthy

true-friendship

 

 Let us seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word].Hebrews 10:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we become Christians we confess Christ as our Savior, King and best Friend.

We have all had friends that have let us down and even back stabbed us.

When Jesus is our bestest friend He is reliable and trust worthy. He never lets us down or back stabs us. His word is law. He promises to always be there with us and for us. He never lets us down. During our trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares we cling to His promise and it strengthen us to endure the hard times. As we progress in our walk with Him we become more confident in Him because He has proven Himself to be reliable and trustworthy.

Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength]. Romans 12:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We have all received conflicting and bad advice about our careers from others.

When we accept Christ as our King we follow the path He has chosen for us with hope (Hope in this manner is confidence in His divine guidance.) Many times He leads us where we do not understand where He is leading us but we trust in Him more and more along the journey because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy and reliable so far.

As death approaches us we are not worried about the unknown or the torment of Hell because we are confident in our hope that He as our Savior will be there to greet us to our Heavenly home. That is because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy and reliable all of our lives.

Jehovah promises and He always delivers on His promises. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to me in Your divine guidance in every aspect of my life. I praise You for this precious treasure in the name of my faithful king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

At Compound Interest.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 One of the advantages of getting old is seeing the hand of Jehovah in others lives during the course of a few decades.

If then, you act with hostility toward Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times in accordance with your sins.” Leviticus 26:21 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed many of the proud and arrogant laugh as they foolishly believe they can live their lives as they see fit and are cruel and dishonest with their neighbours. Through the course of time their mental, physical and spiritual health deteriorates until they are living a daily life of living hell all alone. They are angry and bitter. The strange thing is that they know if they repent at least they will have mental and spiritual health but because they are arrogant they refuse, even unto death. At the moment of death they are alone and terrorized knowing that they are doomed to be cast into eternal Hell where they belong. There is a deep sense of doom and gloom in the room and you cannot wait to get out of there. It is a very sad and pitiful site to see no matter how bad they were to you.

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the [steadfast] lovingkindness which He swore to your fathers. He will love you and bless you. Deuteronomy 7:12-13 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed those that love Jehovah and are obedient unto Him. They are kind, loving, joyous and generous. They age gracefully and are surrounded with a swarm of others to constantly help them when they need help in their old age. They are enveloped with an aura of peace, love, joy and gentleness. You cannot help but love to be around them and help them. When it is time for them to pass on to the other side they are surrounded by loved ones. There is a peace in the room when they pass on. You cannot help but cry with joy at the honour of being their friend and look forward to being with them in Heaven.

“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your divine guidance to walk in Your Heavenly light. Thank you that the fruit of this light is love, joy and peace and with the numerous opportunities to share this light with others in a cold, cruel dark world. I praise you in the name of the Prince of Light Jesus Christ. Amen.

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