First He must Break You.

WE ARE PURIFIED

My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. Psalm 51:17 New International Version

Before you can be used by Jehovah you must first be broken.

There is something or someone in everyone’s lives that they put above Christ. For some it is family, for some it is their job, for some it is their ego. Whatever it is, it must be crushed by Christ.

For me it was someone and a situation was brought about where that bond was painfully broken.

After the healing it was then that Christ could use me.

The amazing thing is that I did not even realize I was a slave to my devotion.

Now I am free from that enslavement and there is a very deep, rewarding, loving relationship between my Beloved and me that I pray I never allow anyone or anything to destroy.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) crush whatever comes between You and me so that I may have the immense honor of serving my beautiful Father. I humble request this in the name of He who served You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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

True religion is . . .

 WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world. James 1:27 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Religion is described as a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

A principle of the heart; in my love for Jehovah and my fellow man

An element of the character of Christ residing with in me;

The habit of thinking, feeling, and acting according to the statutes of Jehovah in all my social relations;

The basis of every virtue which emulates the righteousness of Christs character ;

The main prop of every preforming with all of my mind, body and spirit to excel in service unto our Heavenly King ;

The fear – not just the punishment for the wicked in His terrible justice but to have constant respect and awe of Him but of the Lord, by which men depart from evil;

Faith which means trust working by love to accomplish with total zest all the tasks my Beloved Heavenly Father assigns for me to do;

Such a belief in the gospel of Christ, as leads to a conformity to His example in every aspect of my daily life.

True religion, though founded on a belief of doctrines, and nourished by the exercises of devotion—diffuses its influence over the entire character of man to make him Holy as Christ is holy.

True religion is the belief in Jesus Christ, the love of Jesus Christ, the worship of Jesus Christ, and the imitation of Jesus Christ.

True religion is sound morality, animated and sanctified by the Holy Spirit of true devotion to Christ in all of my deeds and words.

True religion prescribes, not only homage to God, but allows Him dominion into every part of my daily life..

It is all or nothing with Jesus. Either you belong totally to Him or you belong to satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emet (God of truth) continuously expand Thy Divine truth in my spirit and mind of the proper manner in which to daily, moment by moment focus on devoting myself to Your Supreme religion. I meekly request this in the name of He whose every aspect of His earthly journey focused on showing us the proper manner in which to have Your religion supreme in our lives Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Know Not When.

JESUS' GUIDANCE

This is what the Lord says: “I am going to remove you from the face of the earth. You will die this year!” Jeremiah. 28:16

We know not when our time of departure from this world shall come upon us.

If the word departure sounds like something you hear concerning a trip it is well minded that that is what death is.

It is a trip from a limited fleshly existence on this planet to a trip to an eternal spiritual world.

With this in view just as you plan a vacation trip so should you plan your spiritual eternal destiny with ever more diligence.

Earthly trips can and do go array but there is no deviation from your eternal spiritual destiny.

Do not be casual for one moment and say that you will dedicate more of your life unto Christ when _____ fill in the blank.

The length of life in an individual is the most uncertain thing in existence.

What is it that hinders your devotion unto Christ?

Is it that you must finish school first?

What makes you so cock sure that your time on earth will allow it?

Is it that you have a family to care for or until you have paid off your mortgage?

Then you are a fool.

Look around and see how many young widows and widowers there are.

Is it that you need to pay off your mortgage first?

See the for sale signs that are there because the slaves unto the bank died before they could pay off their mortgage.

The time to dedicate your daily life unto Christ is now because you do not even know if you will awake to see the morning sun. Then it will be too late and you will have forfeited your eternal Heavenly home because of your earthly cares.

In whatever state you die this year—that you will be forever!

Will Christ say to you: “Well done good and faithful servant.” or will He say to you:” Get away from Me because I do not know you.”

Put Christ first in your daily lives and allow Him to help you take care of the earthly cares of daily life. I say help you because yes He may take care of a situation for us however most times we must be prepared to work in harmony with the Holy Spirit in our daily lives to succeed.

The time to dedicate our lives to Jesus is now because there may not be a tomorrow. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh how I continuously praise You my Beloved Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the unsurpassing privilege of being Your humbly obedient servant. Although many of the tasks You have assigned this submissive servant to do have been exceedingly challenging, they were always rewarding in accomplishing to make Your heart dance with joy as You make mine in service unto You. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

They are Charlatans.

                                                         

He replied,“Rightly did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders), as it is written [in Scripture], ‘These people honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. Mark 7:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is why the once saved always saved is a lie.

Yes some profess to be baptized and be followers of Christ.

The problem is that they refuse to follow Him in their every day life. They refuse to worship Him, they refuse to thank Him, they refuse to talk with Him (in prayer- except when they want something from Him) and when He speaks with them, they refuse to listen, understand and obey. In short they are charlatans.

Charlatans: one making usually showy pretenses to knowledge or ability fraudfaker Charlatans put on masks in a charade or in a play.

Too many folks put on the outward mask of Christ while the inward heart belongs to satan. They play at being Christian with going to church, going to Bible studies maybe even reading the Bible but they do not walk the walk. They are make believe Christians just as the charlatans are playing the part in a play. If they foolishly believe they are saved they are in for a rude awakening on Judgement Day.

“The man who is not sanctified to the extent of obeying God rather than Satan has not been justified either, making it an obvious fact that he is never saved without either.”  Burton Coffman

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for favoring me with Your excellent truth to enlighten me to the charlatans that play act devotion unto You. In this regard You direct me away from these phonies less they spread this unholy disease unto me. I salute You in the name of He who exposed the phonies while walking amongst us 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

Keep the Ground Clear Of.

                                      

Teach me Your way, O Lord, And lead me on a level path. Psalm 27:11 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

We need the Holy spirit to teach us daily the difference between good and evil.

Do not foolishly be conned into believing that just because you have been reading the Holy Bible for decades that there is nothing more it can teach you.

We need it to convict us when the seeds of evil slowly creep in without our noticing it.

Have you ever seen a dandelion seed?

It is so tiny but when it takes root it is almost impossible to get rid of. So too it can be with sin.

We must in prayer and devoting ourselves to daily Bible reading keep the weeds from taking hold of the garden in our hearts. Just as it takes a lot of work to keep the flower garden clean so too does it take a lot of work to keep our hearts clean. We do that in conjunction with the Holy Spirit. Without Him all is lost.

“Unless we know the difference between flowers and weeds, we are not fit to take care of a garden. It is not enough to have truth planted in our minds. We must learn and labor to keep the ground clear of thorns and briars, follies and perversities, which have a wicked propensity to choke the word of life.” — Clyde Francis Lytle

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your constant weeding in the garden of my heart to keep out the destructive weeds while nurturing Your Divine love in the flowers You have planted with in. I extol Thee in the name of the most awesome Gardener Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do All to the Glory.

But if a widow has children or grandchildren [who are adults], see to it that these first learn to show great respect to their own family [as their religious duty and natural obligation], and to compensate their parents or grandparents [for their upbringing]; for this is acceptable and pleasing in the sight of God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Speaking from both personal experience and knowledge of others who are caregivers of their elderly parents it is common for one adult child to care for the parent while the other siblings do nothing to help ( the adult grandchildren are just as negligent).

The negligent children and grandchildren only call when they want money but if there is any help required in the care of their elderly parent or grandparent they are too “busy” to help. The negligent family members are constantly getting money from the parent or grandparent while the caregiver is left empty handed. Indeed, many times the elderly parent is abusive to the caregiver. The load is very heavy upon the shoulders of the caregiver or caregivers (if they are married it puts tremendous stress on the relationship) and many times the stress is crushing.

“I know God won’t give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.” — Mother Teresa

For me, I go into the forest and spend quiet time with my Love. He blesses me with strength, comfort and encouragement while reading the Book of Psalms.

So then, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of [our great] God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is the important part with the Christian, when we feel like we are being used and abused ( which in most cares we are) just remember that we are serving our Heavenly King Jesus Christ and not man. Our reward will be great in Heaven.

As well the one theme He carries through with me is that when the elderly parent dies Jehovah Jireh (God will supply) will bless us with a comfortable life afterwards.

If I am devoted to the cause of family only, I will soon be exhausted and come to the place where my love will falter; but if I love Jesus Christ personally and passionately, I can serve family though they treat me as a door-mat.

The secret of a disciple’s life is devotion to Jesus Christ, and the characteristic of the life is its unobtrusiveness. It is like a corn of wheat, which falls into the ground and dies, but presently it will spring up and alter the whole landscape.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with Your wise words to continue to be an obedient free will servant unto You and unto my mother in fulfilling my duty unto You and my mother. I extol Thee in the name of Your son who was obedient unto You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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