A closer walk with our beloved friend.

He is Three in One.

GTTING CLOSE WITH GOD

God is faithful [He is reliable, trustworthy and ever true to His promise—He can be depended on], and through Him you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:9   Holy Bible Amplified Version                

First Jesus is our Saviour. It is only He who has the key to unlock Heavens door. There is no hoops to jump through or any religion that can open that door. Yes it seems intolerant but the truth is intolerant to lies.

Second He is my best friend. My greatest joy is when in communion with Him. Not necessarily talking about problems or victories, but just being silent and enjoying communion with Him. There is no piece of wood or sliver whether it be of paintings of saints or Buddhist (or catholic one either) statutes that you can talk with (now to talk with someone means not only do you talk with them but they talk with you as well) that will answer back.  

Third, He is my King, which means I am His free will servant.

We all serve someone or something. I can think of nothing nor no one I would rather serve than Christ. It is the greatest honour and pleasure to serve than Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He is three in one every moment of my life.

Isn’t that amazing.

“We meet God through entering into a relationship both of dependence on Jesus as our Saviour and Friend and of discipleship to Him as our Lord and Master.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honour of serving my best friend whose blood has bought me an entrance through Heavens Gate to spend an eternity with You. You are truly the most amazing of all. I exalt You in You magnificent name. Amen.

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

They Want Something From Him.

WORSHIP

 And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross daily[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many times have you seen children give a grandma a great big hug because she bought them something they wanted? They do not love grandma, they love the gift she has bought them.

How many folks only love Jesus because they want something from Him?

How many are willing to suffer for Him and because of Him?

Look around you and think of what is near and dear to your heart. Would you put it on the alter and sacrifice it to Christ (if it is someone or a pet, please do not physically sacrifice it)? By that, I mean would you give it up in order to become a servant of the most high King? So we will say you are living in a nice home in a nice neighborhood, if Christ called upon you to sell the house, give the money to a charity of His choosing and live in a ghetto, would you do it?

Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, including me.

Would you be obedient unto His commands?

If not, then you are not a true Christian but a marshmallow one. Think of the one you love the most.

If becoming a true Christian meant that they would hate you and disown you, would you sacrifice that relationship for Christ? That means you will never see them or speak to them for the rest of your life. Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, I have witnessed it numerous times in Asia.

“Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly Kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many desirous of consolation, but few of tribulation. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities befall them.” — Thomas à Kempis

Prayer: Thank you for the privilege of enduring numerous trials and tribulations in my relationship with You Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend). It has blessed me with coming into and ever deeper everlasting loving relationship with You my best friend because of these sufferings. I exalt You in Your wonderful name. Amen.

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

Nobody Would Now be Saying.

 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words]. Matthew 28:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our savior that does not mean we are to sit on our hands doing nothing but waiting for Him to take us to Heaven.

Just as He is our Savior so too is He our King.

If He is our King then that makes us His free will servants. As servants the King has assignments for us.

The number one assignment is to bring others into His Holy family.

We accomplish this by living the Christian life every where we are. When others who are open to listening see this they will come unto us not we go out unto them (that is why the Jehovah’s Witnesses and other cults are wrong to harass folks by knocking on our doors). Then we can share the gospel with others and bring them into His Holy family.

We do this everywhere, at school or work, when shopping, in our leisure activities and any other place we are. We are also to make the commitment to helping them in their Christian walk by having Bible studies with them and giving them testimony of what Christ has done in our lives and through our lives.

“If Christians had ever been brave enough to make Christ alive, nobody would now be saying that Christianity is dead.” — Winifred Kirkland

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) bless me to always live a life and talk the talk to show others that You are alive, active and ever present in my life so that they may be brought unto You Holy family. I humbly ask this in the name of the liveliest Eternal King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Blesses Us by Sending

 “I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This truth has taken me years to believe ( not learn, I learned it but did not truly believe it).

It is when we are in the furnace of affliction and upon our knees crying out unto Jehovah in agony that He blesses us with the calming and strengthening presence of the Holy Spirit to encourage us on.

It is in the desert when our souls are parched dry and everyone has deserted us that we call out in desperation unto our Beloved for help and He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to quench our parched souls with the life giving Divine Holy waters that refreshes our spirits and allows us to not only continue on but to flourish in this inhospitable place.

It is in the raging storms when we believe we are sinking in the crashing waves that we desperately call out unto our Abba in Heaven to rescue us that He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to take our hand ever so gently but firmly and will not let go that we walk on the waters through the tumultuous thundering waves with Him.

It is in the firestorms when flames of fire are constantly piercing our hearts that we call out unto our Heavenly Father to protect us that He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to heal our wounds and in times carry us through when we no longer have the strength to battle the intense flames.

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for always being present through the numerous trials, tribulations and sorrows that is a part of every life. Thank you for the Divine strength You bless me with. I praise you in the name of He who walked through so many difficulties with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Faith of Adherence.

 Then his wife said to him, “Do you still cling to your integrity [and your faith and trust in God, without blaming Him]? Job 2:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If anybody had the right to lose faith in Jehovah it is Job. Everything he had, his wealth family and health while remaining faithful unto Jehovah. Yet, through it all he persevered even though he did not understand while all the tragedy was happening to him.

There have been many times in my walk with Christ when I was suffering and not knowing why it was happening. I called out unto the Lord and He was silent. In the end I just told the Lord that even though it is tough and I do not understand why this is happening my faith in Him and His reason for allowing this was unshakable. It was later that I realized that some of them occurred to strengthen my faith while others were happening to burn off the dross. The final analysis though is that it was always for my own good.

“When I cannot enjoy the faith of assurance, I live by the faith of adherence.” — Matthew Henry

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) that even though many times I do not understand what You are doing or why I have complete faith that You are doing this for my own good because You love me so much. I exalt You for this blessing in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

Faith is an Action Word.

 

 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed in (trusted, relied on) God, and it was credited to his account as righteousness (right living, right standing with God).” Romans 4:3The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Faith is an action word.

Abraham was told to leave the comfort of the city he dwelt in and to leave all the wealth he had to go out into the unknown.

He did not know where Jehovah was leading him, He did not know where his daily provisions were going to come from.

He did not have any protection from the wild animals nor bandits. At that time He did not even know Jehovah.

Yet, through all of this he obeyed when Jehovah told him to leave his comfort and security to go out to the unknown world ( at that time leaving the security of the city you were living in was like going to another planet).

You are told to go when it does not makes sense to go. You are living a comfortable life. You are going to leave family and friends, have no means of financial support and no protection will you have the faith ( which is another word for trust) to obey Jehovahs command?

You are told to stay when it does makes sense to. You have no job but there is another one offered in another city. Your savings have been depleted. There is rising crime rate with little protection from the authorities. Will you have the faith to stay when all else says to flee?

Faith is obedience.

Will you trust Jehovah to do what does not make sense to do and to not do what does make sense to do?

In my life all of my failures can be traced back to lack of faith in Jehovahs commands.

My greatest successes were when I was obedient unto Jehovahs commands even though they seemed insane ( indeed many of my biggest fights with the family was when they were trying to convince me to disobey Jehovahs commands and I was bitterly mocked for my obedience ).

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) bless me to always be faithful and obedient unto You knowing that You are the most faithful of all and Your commands are for my good. I sincerely request this in the name of He who was obedient and faithful 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.

It is Not Futile.

 Your labor in the Lord is not futile nor wasted. 1 Corinthians 15:58 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you serving the Lord yet not seeing any results?

Take heart.

Seeds do not bear fruit over night but some grow quick while others take longer to bear fruit. Joseph son of Jehovah T

hey say that when we get to Heaven one of the greatest surprises will be the people around us that we served and then moved on. We do not believe we gave them a lasting affect but afterwards they blossomed into beautiful children of Jehovah.

I know, when I was a teacher there would be many months with no visible change in my children. I would call out to the Lord and ask Him why I was wasting my time here suffering these hardships for nothing. Then one day some of them would come up to me like children on Christmas morning and share with me that they had given their hearts and lives to Jesus. Because we were in a communist country and there was no Bibles readily available would ask me if I had one which I gladly obliged. I cannot tell you how my heart danced with ecstasy in pure joy.

Any time spent serving the Lord is never wasted time. Joseph son of Jehovah

You may not see the results in your lifetime but take heart. Some of the seeds you have sown will blossom into Heavenly children of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful to my request for the honour of planting the seeds of a Heavenly crop, even if I do not see the harvest during my lifetime. I exalt You in the name of the greatest sower Jesus Christ. Amen.

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