So Too is it With

Because I am in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], I am a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

WE MUST LET GO

Have you ever seen them graft one tree into another?

I have always found that fascinating. The grafted part becomes a part of the tree. It depends upon it for sustenance. Indeed, if it was a different species it now becomes a new one.

So too is it with our relationship with Christ.

The moment we accept Him as our Saviour, King and best friend He begins grafting us into one of His own. We depend upon Him for our mental, physical and spiritual health.

The things that once fascinated us soon become repugnant and repulsive to us.

Now, we have become more like Him we have the same disposition as Him and the same fancies.

This is strange to those on the outside and so they mock us. That is to be expected because those on the out side mocked Jesus as well.

The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist of all Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with grafting me into You most beautiful holy family. I thank you in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

No Matter the Enemy.

The Lord your God is with you, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He will have much joy over you. With His love He will give you new life. He will have joy over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST SHOWS HIS STRENGTH

No matter the enemy you are doing battle with, the unconquerable Trio is right there in the thick of it with you.

They are of course: Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Do not think this is a one battle event.

There are addiction battles, health battles, bad disposition battle and relationship battle. These occur over the course of a lifetime.

Some battles are short, some last for decades (I can think of one in my life that took over forty years before our Loves finally annihilated it ).

Some battles will never be won until we reach Heavens Gate.

Some battles we must be submissive to our Holy Kings to fight along side of them for victory to be won.

Some battles we must step back and surrender them to the Heavenly Trio to destroy.

Through them all Jehovah the Refiner is burning off the filth in us and making us the pure children of love He intended for us to be. After each burning off of the dross (eliminating the filth in us) Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the angels in Heaven  dance for joy at seeing us become more refined than the finest gold.

We are constantly being remoulded into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with Your victorious battle skills that You have taught me to use to win battles, for sharing You awesome battle strategies with me so that we win the battle together and for blessing me with the skills, knowledge and You magnificent encouragement to egg me on to victory. I bless You in the name of He who won the greatest battle of all, that over death, Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Have Seen It.

I have seen it, seen the demons dragging away the dammed.

One evening while watching a segment about the Hong Kong riots on TV, the police were dragging away a young woman protester. The look in her eyes was one of pure terror. She knew, being a woman, what to expect yet there was no escape for her poor dammed soul. This is not to cast the police as demons but rather a metaphor for what will happen upon the day of judgment to the wicked.

So too will it be on the day of judgment. The look of helpless terror in the dammed eyes. There will be no escaping the clutches of the angels that are casting them into a place of eternal agony, torment and hopelessness. Woe be unto them.

FURNACE OF HELL

The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night Revelation 14:11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

That image of the young woman haunted me for a few days and I wept over her. If we weep for those that are unknown to us how much more studious must we be to do everything in our power to prevent those we love from being cast into this horrid place of eternal damnation.

To say those we know around us are going to Hell without doing anything to prevent it is perhaps the worst sin a Christian can commit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What must you do to prevent such a dastardly calamity you ask?

To begin with, live the Christian life with joy that come with communion with Christ, Christian compassion, strong Christian morals and quiet peace that can only be attained with the presence of the Holy Spirit.

NOT SEGREGATED

Then, when the curious ask what blesses us with such admirable disposition, we can gladly share our own testimony of our walk with Christ.

A Christian should be a walking, talking testimonial beam of Heavenly light of Christ that is sweet and appealing to those stumbling about in the darkness on their way to Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

PRAYER: Oh my loving Jehovah Hashopet (Judges 11:2 The LORD the Judge) seeing the terror and knowing the eternal horror that awaits the dammed please bless me with every opportunity and every skill to guide the lost from the trail of the dammed and onto the road to Heaven. I humbly request this in the name of He whose heart shall be pierced like a hot knife going through it as He condemns the dammed Jesus Christ. Amen

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

If You Want to Know

look for me

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. John 14:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you truly want to know what Jehovah is like just read about Jesus in the New Testament in your Bible. The two are of the same disposition.

If you want to know who the best guidance Councillor is just look at Jesus. He has gone through every thing, and so much more, that we have. Therefore, He understands everything we go through and is best qualified to give the best advice (Jesus is too much of a gentleman to demand anything, He always suggests what is best for us, it is in our best interest to be obedient unto that advice.).

Who would you rather go to with a problem: someone with a certificate on the wall but has not walked one step through what you are experiencing.

Or: Someone who has walked a mile or more in your shoes so understands completely what you are going through and has unlimited resources to help you resolve the problem.

“If you want to know who God is, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what it means to be human, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what love is, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what grief is, look at Jesus.  And keep looking until you’re no longer a spectator but part of His grand story.” N. T. Wright

Prayer: Thank you GELAH RAZ (Revealer of Mysteries) for revealing the mystery of You to this humble child of Yours that is blind to the foolish ones that are walking towards Hell. Please bless me with the ability to reveal You with others as You have revealed towards me. I humbly request this in the name of He who opened the eyes of the blind Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

There Should be a Melting

we are purified

My son, do not reject or take lightly the discipline of the Lord [learn from your mistakes and the testing that comes from His correction through discipline]. Proverbs 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

It is in the fire of the burning off of the dross that my Heavenly Father completely destroyed destructive traits in my disposition. It was extremely painful but I am eternally grateful for Him for blessing me this necessary action.

We all have bad dispositions, both good and bad, we have inherited from our parents. That is natural.

Removing the destructive ones can only be accomplished super naturally. There is no one superior to Jehovahs super powers.

Now notice that I mentioned dispositions. We all have more than one. The more we more have the more we will be put into the fire. The more we resist the fire the longer we will be in it until we surrender to our Lords will and power in our lives.

Speaking personally, I have been put in that fire so many times and been in there so long I am surprised I do not have a permanent sun burn (I used to be a little stubborn).

”For a Christian to defy adversities is to “despise” chastisement. Instead of hardening himself to endure stoically, there should be a melting of the heart.” — Arthur W. Pink

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) with smiting me Your rod of adversity whenever I am a disobedient child of Yours or when it is necessary to purge me of harmful dispositions with in my character. It is necessary so that I may become more pure in Your eyes and for my interaction with those around me. I praise You in the name of He whose anger at wickedness caused Him to strike the unrepentant money changers in Your temple Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world 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

My Daily Spiritual Feast

To know [skillful and godly] wisdom and instruction; To discern and comprehend the words of understanding and insight. To receive instruction in wise behavior and the discipline of wise thoughtfulness, Righteousness, justice, and integrity. Proverbs 1:1-3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every day I enjoy a nutritional feast that prepares me for what ever encounters may come my way during the course of the day.

For breakfast I listen to thirty minutes of inspirational and instructional scriptures and Christian quotes. For an additional part of the meal there is twenty minutes of reading Christian literature.

For lunch there is fifteen minutes reading from the Book of Psalms.

For supper I listen to or watch online sermons and for a bed time snack I again listen to thirty minutes of inspirational and instructional scriptures and Christian quotes.

Instead of watching the rubbish on TV and the lies that are mockingly passed of as news broadcasts why not try these meals instead.

Instead of listening to the filth that is disgustingly passed of as music why not try listening to positive Christian music, especially the old hymns instead.

See the change that evolves in your disposition with in one month.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my mind, heart and spirit a child that pleases You. For educating me in the proper manner in which to live so as to be wise and avoid the many pitfalls and traps that come my way. This results in a life filled with wisdom, strength and peace no matter what the evil ones through at me. I exalt You in the name of the wisest there ever was, is and will be Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Revive the Heart.

GOD LOVES YOU

For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:  “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15 New King James Version

The proud are dammed to Hell, the humble will enjoy Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                    

contrite: feeling or showing sorrow and remorse for a sin.

When we are sorry for a sin we have committed and make amends for our wrong we are forgiven.

Now sometimes because of the circumstances or our disposition we cannot make amends. That is when we need to sincerely pray to Jehovah to bless us with the Holy Spirits guidance and strength and disposition Then when the Holy Spirit answers us we are to be obedient.                                                     

humble :not proud : not thinking of yourself as better than other people

Sometimes we are too filled with pride because we believe we are better than the offended one and we will not lower ourselves to apologize and make things right. This attitude must be smashed and destroyed before any reconciliation can occur.

We will never be right with God until we are right with others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Once we have been reconciled with the one we offended then we can be reconciled with Jesus. If you feel Jehovah is far from you, maybe it is because you are far from Him. He does not tolerate disobedient children but always forgives those who repent. When there is reconciliation on our behalf  then He will heal our spiritual life and revive our healthy relationship with ourselves, with others (sometimes the others will refuse to accept our overtures but that is okay, God knows and that is what is important) and with Jehovah.                        

revive: to become strong, healthy, or active again All definitions from  Merriam- Webster dictionary

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing me from the sting of my confessed sins and for reconciling me unto You again. I am ever so deeply grateful in the name of He whose blood heals my sins Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Will Praise You.

DANCE FOR JOY

I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. Psalm 9:1 New King James Version

 

Whenever I find myself becoming a Negative Nellie I always reflect back on all the marvelous blessing Jehovah has abundantly showered upon me both great and small. As each one comes to mind I thank my gracious Heavenly Father for these gifts. Soon the negative thoughts are replaced with boisterous praise.

 

 

It not only changes my disposition for the moment but also becomes a part of my daily life.

 

When you want to complain, think of something to be grateful for and thank God for it. See how much your life changes. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Oh how I praise You my awesome Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the in-numerous amazing gifts You have abundantly graciously showered upon me every day. It makes my heart sing like a bird of Your amazing love and care for this, Your cherished child. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Gift You have blessed me with Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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