First You Have to Die

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Before you can become a Christian, first you have to die.

You have to die to self and be resurrected unto Christ first in your life.

It is not natural so we must depend upon Christs super natural powers to transform us from the caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. This is not a one of experience but a daily one.

The manner in which we mature from a child of Christ into a man or woman of Christ is to trust Him. Many times what He desires of us does not make senses. That is where trust and obedience matures us. It begins with baby steps and slowly progresses into larger steps as we mature more and more.

I have walked with my bestest friend for many decades and am still maturing in Him. Being a Christian is a life time commitment. We will not be mature Christians until we are in our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The more we trust and obey our Heavenly King the easier it is to follow in His footsteps as He guides us into service for Him.

As He is our King so too does that makes us His servants. We are not to accept Him as our saviour and sit on our hands waiting for Him to take us to Heaven but rather we are to serve Him in dedicating our daily lives unto Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King Psalm 98:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation ) for the privilege of being Your humble obedient servant. It is the greatest honour there can ever been given.

May my service always bring joy to Your precious heart. It is in Your majestic name I pray. Amen

May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to serve the most majestic Emperor there can ever be today and every day. Joseph a son of JehovahThis article and photo @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2021

He Uses Us to Spread The

Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume. 2 Corinthians 2:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We who belong to Christ are walking billboards. We need not try to convince someone to dedicate their lives unto Christ with a Bible or tracts. Because we live by Christian morals we stand out like neon lights. Men and women cannot help but notice how we are different than the crowd.

Think of a crowd walking around all wearing filthy rags. Then they see someone wearing clean white clothes that glow.

Will that man or woman not stand out?

Will those in the crowd not be curious?

Many, will be angry that the one wearing the clean clothes are not wearing filthy rags like them.

So too it is with us Christians, we are not walking around wearing the filthy rags of the devil but rather the beautiful clothes of Jesus.

A few, not many , will be curious why our clothes are different. When we explain that these are the clothes of Christ most in the crowd will just walk away.

But, there will be even fewer that desire to wear those clothes.

THAT, is when we share the gospel message and it is our duty to guide them to Jesus.

It is only half done when you guide someone to Jesus. Now, you must be their mentor as someone was yours. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This will take time and effort on your behalf. It takes commitment unto Christ your king to bring that sheep into His flock and it take love and commitment on your behalf towards the baby Christian to help them become a mature one.

Those that cry because their churches need to put this into practice if they desire their building to be filled.

There is no such thing as a Sunday Christian. It is a moment by moment affair with Christ and daily dedication to guide others away from Hell and towards Heaven that is a true Christian

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yotsero (God our maker Psalm 139:13-16 ) for blessing me that You have sent The Holy Spirit to mold me into the beautiful creation You know I am capable of being.

I apologize for the times when I was a hard lump of clay instead of being a soft one.

I praise you in the name of He whose holy blood provides the material necessary for this to occur Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed to be wise enough to be the soft clay and not the hard. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Holy Spirit Izuz Wegibbor

Don’t let me drift toward evil or take part in acts of wickedness. Don’t let me share in the delicacies of those who do wrong. Psalms 141:4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I find it starts out slowly.

The wicked con you into thinking it is fun and you are a nobody if you do not join it with the “ in crowd.” That is how most addictions happen.

The pressure is great, especially for teenagers.

That is why it is important to not only have a knowledge of the Bible to quote verses to give you strength and to silence the good time buddies.

However, the best defence against them is to always be in close communion with The Holy Spirit. He will bless you with wisdom to defeat your opponents and the strength to resist temptations. He is just a prayer away.

If Jesus needed prayer before His crucifixion do you not think you need prayer in your time of temptation? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I praise you Holy Spirit Izuz Wegibbor (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Strong and Mighty ) for blessing me with the strength to resist the devil and his minions when I am weak.

I exalt You in the name of the strongest super hero of all who came to You in His hour of need, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the Holy Spirits strength in your time of weakness. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There is No Half Way With

So you cannot become my disciple without giving up everything you own. Luke 14:33 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is no half way with Jesus Christ. You are either all the way in or stay home.

Yes you are expected to give up everything for Christ. Your complete body and soul belong to Him and are obedient unto Him.

Do not be surprised when ( not if ) He commands ( He is our King, we are His servants. The servant does not tell the king what to do. The King tells the servant what to do ) you to give up everything and go someplace you do not want to go.

He did that with me.

I did not want to go tree planting or go to China to teach.

When you are obedient unto Him, do not be surprised when you suffer.

Do not be surprised when that suffering is one of the greatest gifts Jesus can give you.

You see, your suffering brings you ever closer to Jesus and nothing is worth more than this. Boy did I ever suffer and boy are we ever close. I still thank Him for it to this day.

As well, when you are obedient unto Him do not be surprised that you will reap a huge harvest in bringing others into Christs Kingdom.

Prayer: I surrender everything to You oh gracious Jesus Christ Eli Maelekhi (Psalms 68:24 GOD My King ) because deep down I know everything already belongs to You anyways. I thank you that Your rewards to in the Heavenly home You have prepared for Your faithful servant far outweigh anything this earthly life can offer.

In Your wonderful name I pray. Amen

Realize That Both Come From God.

Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realize that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life. Ecclesiastes 6:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have found that during the good times we tend to neglect our relationship with Jehovah , Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit.

Do you spend as much time with them as you do playing video games ?

As well, we neglect sharing our tithes.

Yes , that is still important.

How else can organizations like Focus on the Family or Our Daily Bread help Christian brothers and sisters all around the world?

We neglect tithing our time as well.

Do you spend as much time helping out in your community as you do at the gym?

Do you spend as much time with a Bible study as you do on social media ( I do not understand why they call it social media when alls I see are narcissists ) ?

Spending time with our Heavenly Beloved is the most special time of every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Then , when the hard times come instead of thanking Jehovah for them we cry like little spoiled immature babies because of the suffering involved.

The hard times help us mature and help us develop a closer relationship with Jehovah, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit.

It is in the hard times we draw ever closer to our Heavenly Beloved and during the good times we ignore them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide ) for blessing me with the hard times. They draw us ever closer and help me to mature more into the child of Yours You know I am capable of being.

Thank you for the good times my Love because it is there that our hearts dance with delight as we commune together.

I exalt You in the name of He with whom I take the greatest delight in spending both the good times and hard times with, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with spending quality time with your best friend, Jesus Christ, every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Was Pressured Greatly To

Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 1 John 2:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Being a bit of an old geezer, I have seen oh so many fads come and go.

There was the hippy generation, the disco generation, the punk generation, and I have no idea what the generations from the nine teen nineties are called.

During one of them I was pressured greatly to conform to their lifestyle. I was bullied and laughed at a lot because of my refusal to join in the fun times.

It is interesting to see them now. They realize that lifestyle was meaningless.

Reflecting back on my walk with Christ in that time there are moments of pure ecstasy, there were many moments of suffering which brought me ever closer into Christ’s loving arm and engaged my trust in Him my adoration in Him, my love for Him and my dedication in service unto Him. This was good and pleasing unto my cherished Father in Heaven, King in Heaven and amazing tutor ( The Holy Spirit ) .

Mind you, this transformation will continue even in our Heavenly Home so do not think you are a finished product.

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“I came to Him because I did not know which way to turn. I remained with Him because there is no other way I wish to turn. I came to Him longing for something I did not have. I remain with Him because I have something I will not trade. I came to Him as a stranger. I remain with Him in the most intimate of friendships. I came to Him unsure about the future. I remain with Him certain about my destiny. “Ravi Zacharias

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) thank you for Your patient transformation of this rough piece of clay into the beautiful creation You intend for me to be. I look forward to experiencing what the finished product will be in Heaven. I extol Thee in the name of He who took twelve rag tag hilly billy boys from Galilee into a fire that set the world aflame two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you allow yourself to be transformed into a Heavenly creation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Once and Forever

Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. Hebrews 7:25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Standard

GODS HELP

We all have them.

Wars, yes they are cruel wars that inflict a lot of pain, torment and destruction in our lives. They are called addictions. Yes, there are the obvious ones like alcoholism, but there are also the ones like having constant negative thoughts.

There are the constant Worry Wort Willies that worry about everything and Negative Nellies that can always find something to complain about.

We know these addictions are wrong.

However, no matter how hard we try to stop doing them, we fall flat on our faces.

The only way to complete and total victory is to completely surrender them to Jesus. Then and only them will there be complete and total victory.

There are some wars that only the Holy Spirit can win. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Our response for this amazing gift is total joy, gratitude and dedication to our Saviour.

I believe that is why Jehovah allows imperfections in us, to teach us what a wonderful, loving, caring and generous Father He is. That creates a loving heart in us towards Him. This is the object of Jehovah, to bless us with the most Heavenly of love affairs.

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with victory over foes that are too strong for me to conquer. Thank you for smashing those cruel chains that enslaved me. I forever sing praises of gratitude unto You in the name of the Victorious King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In Exchange for You

 Others were given in exchange for you  I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me.  You are honored, and I love you. Isaiah 43:4  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

Jehovahs most precious son was given in exchange for you and me.   

Read it like this Jesus was exchanged for me. Jehovah traded Jesus, His most precious sons life for mine. Because I am precious to Him. I am honoured and Jehovah (and Jesus) loves me.  

How can I not love one who loves me so deeply as Jesus.  Joseph a son of Jehovah           

That not only sounds nice but should be ingrained in our thoughts before we say or do anything. How could we say or do anything that would not bring glory and honour to them as a gift of appreciation to them for their extravagant gift of love to me.

i love you my lord

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) – Is. 49:26, 60:16 that through Your precious blood, suffering, death and glorious resurrection You have redeemed me. May my dedicated life unto You always bring You glory, honour and little lost sheep. I pray this in Your merciful name. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are You Willing To

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer

Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?

Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?

In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?

Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?

Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?

When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?

On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.

Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?

Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.

Now, that does not sound stupid does it? 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Not Good Enoughs.

HE IS THE BOSS

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever worked for the “not good enoughs”?

These are ungrateful folks that no matter how hard you try it is never good enough for them. I used to be a people pleaser. It was not that their praise was needed for my ego but that there was a genuine desire to make others happy. It was and still is devastating to try your best only to experience their gratitude by slowly slicing it apart as with a knife with their complaints on how it is not good enough.

Now, that I am a more mature Christian, I seek Jesus’ pleasure not mans. He does not make a big deal out of it but there is a gentle loving feeling in the heart when He softly whispers:” Well done My good and faithful servant.” That is more rewarding than anyone else could say or do.

Work for Christ nor man. He is much easier to work for and much more appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6 for blessing me with the honour of being Your obedient servant. I am filled with such wonderful joy when You esteem my dedication unto You in daily service to the King I adore. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen

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