Until I Knew How to Love.

 

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

 I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. Romans 12:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a Christian means sacrificing self for Jehovah. We do this by being loving unto others. This is well pleasing to our Beloved.

We dedicate our bodies in service unto Christ by serving others in love. This is well pleasing to Him.

Each of these is an act of worship to Jehovah.

In return, He blesses us with close loving communion with Him.

As we serve others we realize how Jehovah takes care of us by us taking care of others. This increases our love and dedication towards Him.

It need not be travelling to other countries. In almost every country in the world there are ample volunteer opportunities in your own community. As you serve in a Christ like manner others will recognize Christ in you. This in turn will bring others towards being adopted into Jehovahs holy family. Do not expect big returns, from my experience it will only be about one in every ten that give their hearts unto Christ because of your dedicated service. The others will be ungrateful. Do not be disheartened. Even one is precious in the eyes of Jehovah.

“I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah MELEK KABOWD (King of Glory) for the privilege of serving You by being loving towards those around me. May this humble act of worship bring glory unto You and bring those walking in darkness into Your eternal Heavenly light. I worship You in the name of the light of the world with whom I love to worship Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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

Three Things That Only God Knows

                                                                  

I do not know, [only] God knows. 2 Corinthians 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been so many times when trials and tribulations have struck without warning in my life (matter of a fact almost all the time). I call out unto Jehovah and ask Him why I had no warning and why it was happening. He is silent. That is a good thing. He does not inform me because there would be terror in my heart at the foreordained knowledge of what was coming. He does not inform me because either He is in the process of molding me through this event or He is testing me through it.

He does not allow me to know how long it will last. There is good reason for that. If I knew how long it would last it may seem too long a time or I would become complacent in the knowledge that it will only last for a while.

So, when you are going through and difficulty and Jehovah is silent, there is a good reason for it.

No, He is not angry with you, although this may be an event to discipline you.

No, He has not deserted you, He loves you too much to ever desert you.

“There are three things that only God knows: the beginning of things, the cause of things and the end of things.” Welsh Proverb

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with events in my life that You have used to burn off the dross to create in me a righteous heart and life of dedication unto You. Thank you for not forewarning me of these events becasue they would be too terrible for me to grasp at the time. Thank you that through these events You strengthen my faith in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart 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.

Must Mean Everything to Us.

Therefore I urge you,brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.Romans 12:1 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Most western Christians have it backwards. They falsely believe that Jesus is here to serve them. They only call on Him when they want something from Him whether it is to solve a problem or whether it is because they want something from Him. When He blesses them with their request they are rude and ungrateful and do not even thank Him.

That is not the Christian life.

The Christian live is to dedicate ones self to Christ in serving Him. His will is to always supersede theirs. We are to lay our desires upon the alter and to completely surrender to their will in their lives. After all we were created to do specific works He has prepared for us to do.

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 2:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

The Christian motto is to be: Christ first, others second, self last. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When others see our sacrificial works they will become intrigued and ask us why  we live such a life. This will be our greatest testimony and evangelism of all. We are to be a living testimony for Him.

Do not tell me of your Christ, show me Him in your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Christianity must mean everything to us before it can mean anything to others.” — Donald Soper              

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) my eternal King for the supreme privilege of being Your humble servant. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

I Am the Only Way.

 Jesus said to him, I am the [only] Way to God and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no negotiation with Jehovah.

I do not care what religion it is they all fall flat on their faces because they refuse to accept Christ as the Saviour and Heavenly King.

As for so the called Christian churches that preach the Santa Claus religion ( just as if you are a good boy or a good girl Santa Claus will bring you presents some so called Christian religions preach that it is by good works that you enter into Heaven. Both are fairy tales) they are living in a fools paradise. All their good works do not matter one iota on judgment day.

It is only by Christs blood, resurrection and our accepting His sacrifice and accepting Him as our saviour that we will be granted entrance into Heaven.

“God never negotiates with men. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross put an end to any kind of negotiations. It is now Christ or nothing. It is now God’s word in its entirety or nothing.” A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wonderful privilege of being Your humble servant here on earth and eventually for eternity in the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I extol Thee in thy magnificent name. Amen

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

He Spreads the Snow.

WAIT UPON GOD

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes. Psalm 147:16 New International Version                                                        

As there is a snow storm predicted for our area I prayed that we would not get the storm but rather a constant gentle snow flurry.                                                                               

Yesterday morning when I woke up there was a constant gentle snow flurry outside which has lasted all day.                                                                                                             

This morning I awoke to see huge snowdrifts outside. We were blessed with over a foot of snow last night.                                                                                                                              

I am sure the kids like it because of a snow day but I am even more sure it delighted the farmers even more.

As well we need it to replenish our streams and rivers.     

Another benefit is it will cover the roots so they do not get frozen and the plants like tree’s die like they did last year.                                      

Because last month there was a shortage of snow we need a good snowfall for our crops and to prevent soil erosion during these winter months.     

Finally because of the cold and snow it will kill harmful pests that lay eggs in tree’s.                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Nuah. (God who blesses with rest) for blessing us with just the right amount of snow to nourish and protect the land while not deluding us to make it treacherous for locals driving to worship You at church today. I humbly thank you in the name of He who nourished the crowd of three thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.                      

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