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

There is No Longer Any

FURNACE OF HELL

Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins. There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment Hebrews 10: 26-27 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here it is, in black and white.

There are those that are either gullible or down right liars when they preach that when we accept Christ as our Savior we can live how ever we desire without any consequences. That is a big lie that only leads to Hell.

The thing to notice is these are deliberate sins which indicates that we know they are wrong yet continue to enjoy participating in them. It covers a whole range of issues such as gossiping, homosexuality, stealing, getting drunk (or stoned) and many other issues.

Now we all have weaknesses that are too strong for us to handle. That is why they must be laid at the feet of Christ.

BUT, once freed from them if you willingly go back to them you are no different than from those outside of Christs family. Once Christ frees us, only a fool returns to the Hell that He freed them from. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) – Is. 49:26, 60:16 for paying a very high sacrifice to free me from my filthy sins.                                                                     Please send the Holy Spirit to convict me when I begin to stray because our loving relationship is the greatest treasure You have blessed me with and I do not want to destroy it by works of the flesh. In Your beautiful name I exalt You and beseech You. 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

Even He Takes a Day Off

HIS REST

 For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world. Hebrews 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Jehovah did not need to rest after completing creating the universe. Like every good father, He leads by example. So, if it was important enough for Jehovah to rest, do you not believe, it was important enough for you to rest?

As well, He gave Himself certain tasks to be completed each day of creation. When the task was completed, He rested. Do you not believe that you should allow Him to dictate how much work you are going to complete in a day rather that your boss or yourself?

Jehovah is a busy God. He is holding the universe together, helping His children and preparing a Heavenly home for us. Yet, even He takes a day off to rest (to lead by example the need for rest, not that He needs one). Joseph a son of Jehovah                     

Are we too busy to take a rest?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Reliqua autem Deus (God of rest) for blessing me with a special day to rest. It refreshes my body, mind and spirit. I praise You in the name of He whom I love to share that day of rest with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Need to Give the One.

 But the loving kindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who [reverently] fear Him Psalm 103:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version                                                

To fear in this instance means to respect. To revere means to respect in awe and means to be lovingly obedient. Therefore you need to give the one in order to receive the other.

Think of it, have you ever given something to someone who is not only ungrateful but demanding?

I find the one goes with the other.

Not only are they ungrateful but they demand more and more while giving you nothing in return. Just ask most parents of adult children and grandparents today and they will tell you how that feels.

How much more is it insulting for you to behave in this disgusting behaviour towards our loving Heavenly Father?

The only time you talk with Him is when you want something from Him. You never say thank you and you never give Him anything in return.

Why would He bless you?

On the other hand, there are the children that are grateful to their parents for their help, are willing to help them and respect them.

Ask any parent of an adult child how it feels to have a child like that. How much more delightful do you think it feels for Jehovah to have such a treasure of a child like that?

Do you not think it brings Him great delight to bless a child like that?

Which one are you?

Be respectful to He who has an everlasting love for you. It came at a great cost. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our most loving Father) for blessing me with adopting me into Your Divine family. I relish spending quality time with You my Father, Jesus my big brother and the Holy Spirit my mentor every day. I deeply appreciate Your Heavenly love and You accepting mine. In the greatest acclimation I thank You in my reverential big brothers name Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

The Path of Jehovah

God  give us

Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long. Psalms 25: 4-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. Psalms 25:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is the path

There are numerous places in the Bible about following Jehovahs path.

What is it?

Where is it?

The path of Jehovah is that we are to emulate Him. As He has loving kindness towards us, we are to have towards others. We are to be kind and considerate towards others for no others reason than we care about them as Jehovah cares about us (that does not mean we are to allow them to abuse this kindness.).

As He is good towards us, we are to be good to others. As Jehovah is good to us, let us be good to others.

As He speaks the truth to us so to is our conversation to be honest with others. We are not to lie, manipulate or con others. That is disgusting filth in Jehovahs eyes. So is gossiping and saying mean, cruel hateful words.

As He is faithful with us so to are we to be faithful with others. We are to be faithful with our families. We are to care for elderly parents and help them as much as we can (if they have been abusive when we were young we can lovingly confront them about it in hopes of reconciliation. If they refuse, still be loving towards them with the hopes of future reconciliation until Jehovah directs us that that is enough and to walk always from them, which He does). We are to be faithful to our wives and husbands (the Godly marriage of one man, one woman, not the satanic filth of homosexuality) . We are to be faithful towards our employee’s and our employers.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (Jehovah our Heavenly Father) bless me to emulate my big brother Jesus in all of my thoughts, words and actions so that they will bring You glory, honour and the little lost sheep. I am grateful that through the course of this we are drawn closer and closer into a Divine love affair that will last an eternity. I sincerely request this and thank you for this privilege in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

That is What We Are!

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

 See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 New Living Translation

If you notice with my quotes they are always from: Joseph a son of Jehovah. That is because that is exactly what I am, a son of Jehovah.

When we accept Christ as our Saviour it is by His sacrifice that we become children of the Divine God. Therefore, that makes you a son or daughter of Jehovah.

Has kind of nice ring to it does it not?

Now do not go getting a big head about it and becoming pompous. Jesus is Jehovahs most special son and He was never pompous so what right do we have to be so either?

If we desire to know the proper manner in which is the royal protocol of Jehovahs kingdom we need to study how is most cherished Son behaved as He walked amongst us.

“The Son of God became the Son of man so that the sons of men might become the sons of God.” — Terry Fullam

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the supreme privilege of adopting me into Your Holy Family. It is the most precious gift to be ever given. May I always be blessed to live a life that consistently brings glory and honour to Your Sacred name. I praise You in the name of my cherished big brother 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.

The First Two were Arrogant.

Then the king sent to Elijah a captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men to seize the prophet]. And he went up to him, and behold, he was sitting on the top of a hill. And the captain said to him, “Man of God, the king says, ‘Come down.’” Elijah replied to the captain of fifty, “So if I am a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men].” Then fire fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. So King Ahaziah again sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And he said to him, “Man of God, thus says the king, ‘Come down quickly.’” Elijah answered them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men].” And the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 2 Kings 1:9-13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The first two were arrogant with a man they knew was a man from Jehovah. They were disrespectful. They were not asking respectfully of the man of Jehovah but were arrogantly demanding. They paid the price.

I have found that those who bully one of Jehovahs children pay a very dear price (it is not fire from Heaven but it is severe none the less).

So Ahaziah again sent a captain of a third fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And the third captain of fifty went up and came bowed down on his knees before Elijah, and begged him [for compassion] and said to him, “O man of God, please let my life and the lives of your servants, these fifty, be precious in your sight. Behold, fire came down from heaven and consumed the first two captains of fifty with their fifties; but now let my life be precious in your sight.” The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.” So he stood and went down with him to the king. 2 Kings 1:14-15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The last man was respectful and humble and did not suffer the same fate as the previous two.

I have found that when one is respectful towards one of Jehovah children they are blessed, even if they are not of His family. Be respectful unto everyone but especially a child of Jehovah or you will pay a very heavy price.

Be respectful unto all, but especially those of Jehovahs family. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) bless me to never be disrespectful towards anyone, especially one of Your servants. I humbly request this in the name of my most respectful King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Was Disgusted with Him.

 Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel].2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The king of Israel knew Jehovah’s laws and ordinances yet refused to obey them. He openly worshiped that which disgusted Jehovah. When he came to inquire of a man he knew was a prophet of Jehovah the prophet was disgusted with him and refused to even knowledge him.

So too it is to be with us who are of Christ’s family when we meet a wolf in sheep’s clothing that openly defies Christ’s commands and blatantly follows the wicked ones way of life. Even Jesus says that we are to abstain all contact with them.

This is because if we have contact with them they may influence us and draw us away from Christ.

The closer we get to Christ the more we become like Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Another thing is that because we are close with Christ what disgusts Him disgusts us. So, just as these wolves in sheeps clothing disgust Christ so too do they disgust us.

Now if they repent they are to we welcomed back into the brotherhood and sisterhood of saints.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me to walk away from those who reject You and to be disgusted with their behaviour just as You are and to not even acknowledge them less they steer me away from You. I praise You in the name of He who was disgusted with the scribes and pharisee’s for their hypocrisy Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He is Out of His Mind.

HE GIVES PEACE

But when His family heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, “He is out of His mind.” Mark 3:21 New International Version

When your family and friends laugh at you, mock you and or consider you crazy for giving up all worldly desires to follow the path Christ has for you in life, just remember, Jesus’ family thought He was nuts too.

 

If you give up a successful career to go work in the slums or when you walk away from the booze, sex and drugs, when you walk away from the malls and walk toward Jesus of course those around you will not understand. What they do not and cannot understand they label as crazy because it does not fit their idea of normal.

I would rather be crazy for Jesus than be normal and in Hell.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

It will be painful to have to say goodbye to those close to you but Jesus will reward you with a solid loving, respectful relationship with Him and with those in His divine family.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing me of the wounds inflicted upon me whose words cut deep because of my choice to walk with You. Please forgive them for they do not know what they are doing. I meekly thank you and ask for this forgiveness in the name of He who forgave those who mocked Him as he suffered upon the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The LORD God Said.

CHOICES

And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” Genesis 2:18 New King James Version

I have had many people inform me that being single is a sin. It says in the Bible that man was made to be married quoting from the Book of Genesis.

What it really says it that it is not good for man to be alone. Do not forget that Adam was the only human at that time. So, naturally, as animals had their own species to gather with so too did man require another human. That is why you see that God made a helper comparable to him.

If you are in service to Jehovah many times it is a disadvantage to be married.

In my service to the Lord He has taken me all over the world. If you have a family it is best to stay in one place. If you are married you will be concerned about the welfare of your family which will take you away from total service to the Lord. Many times in my service to the Lord I was sleeping in a tent. That is not a good place to try to raise a family.

I believe that everyone inherently desires to have a spouse, a family and a home. For some of that is not possible in our service to the Lord.  Yes it hurts when we see married couple and those with families. Yes we desire to have that but that is not what Jehovah has planned for us.  Yes we face a lot of nagging from our families (my family nagged me until I was in my fifties).  So those of you who have chosen to remain single to serve the Lord, do not think you are a freak or a failure to your family.

Take strength and comfort in knowing that in Heaven you will be a part of a Divine family.

Another point is that I feel closer to my Christian family than I do to my biological family and have met many Christians who echo that sentiment. To me they truly are my brothers and sisters and we are very close.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddai (our God who is sufficient for our needs) for blessing me with Your comfort and strength to endure the scorn of others for obeying Your call for me to remain single in order to follow Your in my life. Thank you for providing brothers and sisters who are of great comfort and encouragement to me. I praise You in the name of Your son who must have experienced tremendous pressure to marry in His culture in the time He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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