Then, My Spirit Soars

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

 I pray to you, O Lord, my rock.  Do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you are silent, I might as well give up and die. Psalm 28:1 New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my life I felt like giving up and dying. It seemed as if everything I touched was destroyed. It seemed as if I gave everything and there was nothing left. It seemed as if I was the only soul in this world. In those times I went to the Lord and begged for death.

He patiently and lovingly guided me to verse after verse in the Bible affirming His love and care for me. Other times He came personally to me and filled my spirit with His love and reassurance.

One thing I noticed in reflection though, was that it was when I was at the end of my rope that He began an amazing transformation in me. He had to wait until I was ready and willing to surrender my will to His.

The other is that it was life changing in a manner in which shall never be forgotten but joyfully remembered.

Many times when I have felt like giving up I spend time with my Beloved . Then, my spirit soars like an eagle in the sky and my hope is renewed. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesesus Yasha (The Lord my Savior ) for saving me from disaster after disaster. Thank you for the mysterious and numerous ways in which You brought salvation to me. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood saved me from damnation Jesus Christ. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

They go Together.

laugh at fools

 A rebellious and stubborn people, Who walk in the way that is not good, [following] after their own thoughts and intentions Isaiah 65:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Supidness and stubbornness go together like peanut butter and jam.

I know a woman that cannot eat greasy food, if she does she violently vomits after just one bite. One day we were at a take away and she ordered greasy chicken. I told her not to purchase it or she would become violently ill. She insisted that that would not happen this time. As soon as we settled in her van and she took one bite she swung the door open and puked her eyeballs out.

You see, she was stubborn.

She knew she was not to eat that junk yet insisted that this time she would not get sick (even though she did every time previous to that). That was very stupid because she paid a very dear price for her stubbornness.

How many times has Jehovah instilled in us not to do something yet we stubbornly and stupidly return to our wicked ways. When the disaster comes crashing down on us because we were stupid and stubborn and refuse to listen to Jehovah do we not blame Him?

How stupid is that?

Stupidness and stubbornness is also arrogant.

When I was a tree planter and would try to help the rookies who knew nothing of planting there were some who insisted on doing it their way. Even though, that meant they worked just as hard but made a penitence of money that the rookies did that were respectful and listened and obeyed as they were shown. The dumbo’s blame everyone and everything but themselves for their disastrous planting season.

How many times has Jehovah tried to show us a better way to live yet we give Him the finger and go out and live how we see fit. When disaster comes (and it always does) we blame everyone but ourselves.

The stupid and stubborn are self condemned to a life of misery and suffering. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:I thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with patience and a strong arm when I am a stupid, stubborn obstinate child of Yours. I know You only desire what is best for me and must use strong methods when I am a disobedient child of Yours. I praise You in the name of He who was strong with His disciples when necessary Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Shouts in the Street.

search for jesus

 This is something we all need to take heed of today.

She raises her voice in the markets; She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather]; At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:

“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning? How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,  How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?

“If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.

“Because I called and you refused [to answer], I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer]; And you treated all my counsel as nothing And would not accept my reprimand, I also will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when your dread and panic come,

When your dread and panic come like a storm, And your disaster comes like a whirlwind, When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].

“Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer; They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me.

Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel, 
And they spurned all my rebuke.

“Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.

“For the turning away of the naive will kill them,

And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them.

(Unfortunately I have seen too much of this even in today’s society, especially amongst the liberals, homosexuals and so called intellectuals).

“But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.” 

(I have seen this and am living this today. It is a great comfort and instills great peace of the heart). Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Ignore wisdom and pay the price in a living Hell on this earth and an eternal one in the next life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with Your indisputable truth. It has enlightened me to a life free from the darkness around me and the gift of walking in Your righteous light all the way to Heaven. I praise You in the name of the light of the world 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.

Not Until We Have Become Humble and Teachable

follow your ways

 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom; A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him.

There have been so many times in my life when I see someone new at a job doing something wrong or doing it in a difficult way. I try to teach them the correct way or an easier way and they look at me with contempt like they know so much more than me. That is very rude arrogant and disrespectful. The end result for them is of course disastrous.

So too it is with us.

When the Holy Spirit tries to teach us a better way at life and we arrogantly contemptuously ignore Him and do the exact opposite, not only is the result disastrous but it is arrogant and disrespectful towards Him. Not only must we listen to Jehovah when He speaks to us but we are to be obedient as well. We must admit and submit to His supreme intelligence over our feeble minuscule understanding. Otherwise, what is the sense of Him speaking with us?

“Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty…acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always listen, understand and obey Your voice because I know You only want what is best for me because You love me and care about me. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always listened to His Heavenly Fathers voice Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

You Cannot Legislate Folks To.

 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you?You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. James 4:1-3 Holy Bible New Living Translation

DARKNESS

Today everybody screams that if you do not think and believe like I do, you are a sexist, racist, or homophobic. Well, this is the way of the liberals who are very intolerant of others all the while living a life worse than those they are condemning. From my experience, liberals are hateful, closed minded and dictatorial.

Just look at the recent event in the United States where peaceful mostly white Catholic school students (Covington High School) were visiting a cultural memorial and they were viciously attacked by those who appeared to me to be black hate mongers. Then the native came along (please do not tell me he just happened to be walking down the street with a drum in his hands, it appeared to me to be all set up) and started banging his drum. Did he not lie to the leftist media and say he felt threatened by a student who just stood there smiling while the native was banging a drum in his face? The leftist media took off with is as well as numerous other lefties and condemned the student who where the victims.

I personally find it easy to discuss opposing point of views with conservatives. Most (not all) are respectful of opposing views as long as they are not shoved down their throats.

Some of the liberal ideals are good as are some of the ideas of the conservatives. Why do we not just sit down and listen to each other, then have a referendum of the people. Which ever way the people decide is the way the society will go. That is true democracy. You cannot legislate folks to believe in what you believe and cannot force them to live the life you think is right. Now we do have standardized laws like being against the law to commit murder but there are also international laws that state that as long as I am not hurting anyone else I can, will and do live the life I choose (which by the way, is by living in accordance with the Holy Spirits guidance).

The governments of today and the media are pulling folks apart rather than being strong morally and uniting them together. Yes, both liberal and conservative are equally to blame. I believe they do it to gain power and prestige for themselves rather than being honourable and serving those with in their community.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

Christians are to be different. We are to guide others to Christs ever lasting government by our actions and then by teaching them His standard of behaviour that is acceptable in His Eternal government.

The more policies the government enacts that force people to behave a certain way, the less of a community we become. We may see the issue we pushed for go away, but we may also see people more cautious of each other, people less likely to ask for or offer help, less effective teamwork and innovation. The less they are comfortable with others and become more isolationist. This is a recipe for disaster. Anonymous

Prayer: Please Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me that my life is governed by Your righteousness rather than the hatred of the world. Please bless me to be ab ambassador of peace and helpfulness rather than a devil of division and war. In short please bless me to walk like my hero Jesus did in this wicked world so as to guide the hurting to Your loving arms. I humbly request this in the name of my mentor Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blesses with many opportunities to share these with others today.

In Such a Way That .

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

 Focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]. Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus demonstrated His love for us at a high cost. Knowing and understanding this should create an awe and deep love for Him. Yes we are to exhibit towards Him by understanding, however He requires that we pass along His style of love towards others as an act of worship towards Him.

Love is an action not an emotion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We accomplish this in our attitude towards others by not being arrogant nor abusive towards them but rather by being caring and respectful.

We serve Jehovah by serving with in our community. We need not be a missionary in some foreign land when there are ample opportunities all around us every day.

Of course we require knowledge of how to serve, when to serve and where to serve. Doing this on our own will only lead to disaster. We need the supreme teacher to instruct us in the way to accomplish the deeds Jehovah has prepared for us to do.

Now there is no sense in teaching someone to fish if they will never us those skills or go fishing in the first place. When the Holy Spirit enlightens us we are to be obedient and put into practice that which He has indoctrinated into us.

“The knowledge of Christ’s love for us should cause us to love Him in such a way that it is demonstrated in our attitude, conduct, and commitment to serve God. Spiritual maturity is marked by spiritual knowledge being put into action.” Edward Bedore

Prayer:I humbly ask of You Holy Spirit my master teacher to constantly instill in this child of the most Divine Love appropriate words, actions and thoughts of love which will exhibit my appreciation for such and wonderful gift He has blessed me with. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us Your Divine love when He walked 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

But God Isn’t.

BE STRONG AND WAIT

Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Psalm 27:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

In todays instant society it is difficult to learn to wait. That is good because it teaches patience and faith.

It is a little better for my generation and those preceding me because we grew up waiting a lot, that was just a part of life.

However, it is still difficult waiting when it is not day or weeks but years that we have to wait.

Jehovah is not only a giving God but a God of wisdom.

Many times when we respectfully ask of Him and He does not answer right away it is because we are not mature enough to receive the gift.

Would you give a motorcycle to an eight year old child (I have seen many idiot parents do so with disastrous results and then blame everyone but themselves for their own stupidity)? Why not? Because they are not mature enough to handle and care for it that is why.

Every time we take matters in our own hands and attempt to get what we ask for instead of waiting for Jehovah it ends in disaster.

“The trouble is that I’m in a hurry, but God isn’t.” — Phillips Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being so wise and faithful so as to bless me with Your blessings in the appropriate time and manner. Thank you that through this process You have taught me patience and faith in Your providence. May I be blessed to emulate this blessing of patience with all those that I encounter today. I praise You in the name of He who had super natural patience with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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