Everything We Need to Have A

i love you my lord

 And make the Almighty your gold And your precious silver Job 22:25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

Before we had this monopoly money (worthless paper money created through the fiat system) gold and silver were the universal standard of trade. The more you had the richer you were.

As appealing as it is to have a life filled with physical luxury it is more important to have the crown of righteousness placed upon our head in our Heavenly home by our Beloved King, Jesus Christ.

One time on a talk show on the idiot box (TV) there was a successful athlete who was rich beyond measure married to a stunning beauty living in a luxurious mansion. At the end of his career on this show he talked about all of his championships and awards and his luxurious lifestyle, looked at the man emceeing the show and asked: “Is this all there is? Now what? There has to be something more.”

Yes there is and He is the fulfillment of everything we need to have a meaningful life. His name is Jesus. Once you are blessed with a relationship with Him, there is nothing to compare in the world and there is nothing more you either want or desire.

“Nothing teaches us about the preciousness of the Creator as much as when we learn the emptiness of everything else.” ― Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for revealing to me the riches wealth of us is that of a loving relationship with You. There is nothing to compare with it. I praise You in the name whose friendship is the most priceless treasure I can ever be blessed with, Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It is a test of the Heart

tested in affliction

 I know also, my God, that You test the heart and delight in uprightness and integrity. 1 Chronicles 29:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times a trial is a test.

It is a test of our faith in the providence of our Heavenly Beloved. A test to see if we trust Him in His word, promise , unto us. It is a test of our maturity, not for Jehovahs sake but for ours. It reveals where we need to work more, either by ourselves, or in harmony with the Holy Spirit or to work at completely surrendering unto Jehovah- which is an act of faith.

Many times I have cried out to my Beloved and asked Him why this was happening to me. Why are you refusing to Help me? It was only later that He revealed to me that it was a test.

Sometimes I passed and was ready for Him to mature me in the next step to becoming a mature child of His.

Sometimes I failed and would have to relearn the lessons He was teaching me. He was not angry with me but encouraging me and patient with me.

So, when you are experiencing a trial, tribulation or deep agony have faith that there is a Divine purpose for it and you will come through it with His amazing providence.

As well you will become every closer unto Him through this process.

“For God to explain a trial would be to destroy its purpose, calling forth simple faith and implicit obedience.” — Alfred Edersheim

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees who see my life from beginning until my entrance into Heavens gate. Thank you that through the tests You have allowed to come my way, You have blessed me with coming ever closer in our loving relationship. I praise You in the name of He with whom I desire to walk close with in our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Stand at the Door.

voice of god

Behold, I stand at the door and continually knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him (restore him), and he with Me. Revelation 3:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jesus comes a knocking, it is beneficial to us if we open the door. When He enters our hearts He begins a life long process of molding us to emulate Him. The more He reveals of Himself and our Heavenly Father and our Wise Teacher (the Holy Spirit) to us the deeper our will be to come closer to Him.

It is interesting after we have walked with Him for a while how much He has subtly changes our preferences in life unbeknownst to us.

When we reflect back on our past we are shocked at the things we did and believed in.

It is quite interesting when we move away from our community we were raised in and come home after a few years and folks are shocked by how much we have changed. The old things are actually detestable to us and the things we desire those that knew us cannot understand. We feel like an alien amongst our family and old friends.

We are all born into the world. It is Christ that comes unto us. If we accept His invitation then we will spend a lifetime where he makes Himself more appealing and the world more distasteful. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with bringing the Holy Spirit to work with me a make over of my mind and spirit to create in me the beautiful child You know I am capable of being. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood washed my filth away Jesus Christ. Amen

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

One of the Most Important Parts Of

WITH ALL YOUR HEART

The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him,
And He will let them know His covenant
and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning. Psalm 25:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the most important parts of this verse is those who fear Him. What this means in this context is those who respect Jehovah.

Think about it?

Would you waste your time trying to talk with someone who is rude and disrespectful towards you? And, quite probably very arrogant to boot.

Now, why would Jehovah waste His precious time speaking with a Mr. Know It All anyway. After all, according to them they know better than Jehovah to begin with so it is an exercise in futility to attempt to bless them with wise council.

As absurd as it sounds, I have met many that behave in just such a manner.

Of course there are times when we fall into this same category. Jehovah requests we do this but we believe we have a better way to accomplish the deed (which, of course, always leads to a pitiful disastrous failure.).

A covenant is a an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do or not do something specified.

Now why would Jehovah waste His valuable time attempting to make an agreement with a disagreeable soul?

Yes Jehovah has a deep desire for us to join His esteemed family and to bless us however, as in every family there are always rules.

When you look at the Bible two important words are if and but. If you obey My commands you will be blessed but, if you disobey them you will be cursed.

Much of the Bible has deep meaning that its wisdom is bypassed by the disobedient.

When we agree to obey and respect our Heavenly Fathers covenant with us He will reveal incredible deep hidden meanings in His word.

So for example when Jesus says , “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, before Abraham was born, I Am.” John 8:58 The Holy Bible Amplified Version He is talking about the voice Abraham heard in the bush when he was commissioned to free the Israelite’s from Egyptian slavery which means He has no beginning and no end. This put Him on equal footing as Jehovah. This blows apart any heresy that says that Jesus is not Divine.

As in any family there are secrets that are shared with no one else. In this case what is the use, no one will believe Him anyway?

When you show respect and obedience unto Jehovah, you will be amazed at just what secrets He will reveal unto you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: All praise by unto You Jesus Sabaoth (Lord of Hosts ) that Your are the only way to Heavens Gate. All others are inferior to You. By Your grace You have adopted me into a Holy family. All glory unto You my love. AMEN

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

No It is Not.

the-devious-reward

And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account. Hebrews 4:13 Holy Bible, Amplified Version                                 

You may make your schemes and scams in private and foolishly believe no one knows your secret  motives.                                                               

No it is not.                                                                             

I remember a childs show when I was very young where the woman would hold up a hand mirror without the glass and say she can see me. Remember Santa Claus can see you when you were a child. Of course we know these things to be lies now.            

But, Jehovah is real and He does not only see you but knows the secrets of your heart ( I wonder what He thinks of our cats secret thoughts? Lol).

Now we all have our evil side to us which is why we must constantly call upon the Holy Spirit to change our thoughts and behaviors from devilish to Heavenly. This must be done countless times every day.

When the Holy Spirit guides our thoughts we are to be obedient for it to accomplish Christs desires for our own good. Please Jesus bless me that Your thoughts are my thoughts. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please bless me Holy Spirit to guide my thoughts words and deeds so that they are a pleasant aroma to my Beloved Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees. I humbly request this in the name of He who I have the deepest desire to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Did You Know That?

GOD IS WITH US

“Now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God — all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God” (Romans 5:11 New Living Testament).

Do you know that?

Do you know that when you accept Jesus Christ as your savior He instantly becomes your best friend?

Wow!

What an awesome thought huh?

Now just as with humans in order for there to be a friendship, we need to have the same interest and desire to share time together.

Do you enjoy spending time with your best friend?

Do you read His love letters to you, the Bible on a daily basis? For a deeper understanding of His love letters may I suggest  Our Daily Journal from RBC and Our Daily Bread by RBC.

Do you listen to His love songs for you, how much time do you spend listening to Christian music? May I suggest Praise 1065 and Joy Fm (St Louis or Florida).

I would like to suggest going to church, however, from a personal experience I find too many wolves amongst the sheep there (please read 2 Timothy 3:15 to see what I experience in church).

Do you listen to His message to you? I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer.

Now what makes people friends?

Could it be because they enjoy dong the same thing?

Well what did Jesus do when He was here?

Here is His guide to enjoy camaraderie with Him

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 34-40 New International Version

Speaking from personal experience,  in Canada, I have found doing volunteer work extremely rewarding. Both, in personal satisfaction and the knowledge that is was making my best friend very happy.

So how is your relationship going with your best buddy?

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Raphael Simon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for being my best friend and honoring my with such special moments as when we walk together and talk together. I gratefully give thanks in You loving name. Amen.

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

True Christian Love Must Be

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND 

The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.] 1 John 4:8 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

True Christian love must be . . .

Blended with all our habits. A habit is formed by repetition of actions over time until they become as natural to us as breathing. Therefore we need the Holy Spirit to guide us in our daily actions to habitually exhibit Christ’s love towards others at every opportune time that comes our way.

Diffused through all our conduct. Our conduct will be a spiritual by product of our habits.

Forming our character. Our character is formed by the the Divine will and attributes of Christ who has shown us what Holy character is by His actions.

It is His morals which is formed in or hearts , minds and actions not the perverted vile worldly ones. His is to be supreme in every action we partake every moment of every day. We can only succeed in this arduous undertaking through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to which we must constantly submit to whether it is delightful or difficult. Breathing in our desires.

Christian desire is for the the glorifying of Christ and the betterment of those around us with the ultimate goal of leading them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Speaking in our words. Loves words are encouraging, healing, teaching and comforting. The only way we can attain this is by constantly requesting the Holy Spirit guide our words and obeying His direction of speech in each individual circumstance.

Beaming in our eyes. Christian love must have gentle love in our eyes not earthly lusts nor hatred of prejudice towards others Love is the most difficult action we undertake every day.

Yet, it is also Divine in its nature and Heavenly in its rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) please bless me with an abundance of Divine love to bountifully share with others so as to emulate You. May this love direct them unto the greatest love, You which is one of the greatest gifts You may bless me with. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose infinite love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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