Did You Know That?

GOD IS WITH US

“Now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God — all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God” (Romans 5:11 New Living Testament).

Do you know that?

Do you know that when you accept Jesus Christ as your savior He instantly becomes your best friend?

Wow!

What an awesome thought huh?

Now just as with humans in order for there to be a friendship, we need to have the same interest and desire to share time together.

Do you enjoy spending time with your best friend?

Do you read His love letters to you, the Bible on a daily basis? For a deeper understanding of His love letters may I suggest  Our Daily Journal from RBC and Our Daily Bread by RBC.

Do you listen to His love songs for you, how much time do you spend listening to Christian music? May I suggest Praise 1065 and Joy Fm (St Louis or Florida).

I would like to suggest going to church, however, from a personal experience I find too many wolves amongst the sheep there (please read 2 Timothy 3:15 to see what I experience in church).

Do you listen to His message to you? I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer.

Now what makes people friends?

Could it be because they enjoy dong the same thing?

Well what did Jesus do when He was here?

Here is His guide to enjoy camaraderie with Him

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 34-40 New International Version

Speaking from personal experience,  in Canada, I have found doing volunteer work extremely rewarding. Both, in personal satisfaction and the knowledge that is was making my best friend very happy.

So how is your relationship going with your best buddy?

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Raphael Simon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for being my best friend and honoring my with such special moments as when we walk together and talk together. I gratefully give thanks in You loving name. Amen.

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

The Doctrines of Scripture Are.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The doctrines of Scripture are at once . . .the source of consolation, and the means of sanctification. It is in our worse agony that we experience the greatest consolation from our Heavenly Beloved. Sometimes He speaks to us in His loving word (the Bible) and sometimes He comes to us in spirit and comforts us personally. Either way we experience Divine comfort and encouragement.

To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer according to the dictionary. We as Jehovahs children are set apart from the world in our thinking, living and actions. We are to be beautiful lights that glow from our Heavenly relationship with our Divine Designer, Jehovah, so that we are beacons guiding those stumbling in the dark world into the Celestial Light, Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture . . .come into the mind as knowledge, produce peace and love in the heart, spread the beauties of holiness over the character and conduct. These Holy doctrines are taught to us individually by the supreme teacher, The Holy Spirit. They are not taught as a system of religion but rather are taught as a manner in which the child of Jehovah become holy.

One of the fruitations of growing in knowledge and application of scripture in Heavenly peace and love as we emulate our best friend Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture are light; and like the rays of the sun, they sustain life at the root of the vine, and produce fruit on its branches.

Just as sunlight bring live giving vitality unto the vine so too does scripture enlarge spiritual life in the child of Jehovah. This life produces abundant harvests in the society it dwells in.

This heavenly light of truth gives . . . spiritual vitality to the soul, and holy conduct to the life. The truth will truly set us free from the lies in the world around us and fill us with vitality to share this light with others. This is first accomplished in the conduct of the saint.

The doctrines of Scripture are facts, which involve corresponding emotions and principles of action, and must, from their very nature, if believed, be operative upon the heart and the life.

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your abundant Divine knowledge in the proper manner in which to conduct myself according to Your wise principals.

Please bless me with the strength to consistently incorporate them into my daily life.

I gratefully thank You and humbly beseech You in the name of the wisest most obedient man to ever walk the earth 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

Did They Not Have Every Right To

trust in God

 Jesus said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith and confidence [in Me]?” Mark 4:40 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The boat was sinking during a terrible storm. The disciples, who were experienced fishermen believed they were going to die. Did they not have every right to be concerned?

No, they did not.

When Jesus asked the disciples do you still, this implies that they had plenty of experience with Jesus during disasters.

Have they not learned their lessons yet?

Before you are harsh on them, reflect back on your own life. When you were a baby Christian with little experience, you were expected to have little faith and trust, however, as you mature in your walk with Christ your faith is expected to become stronger.

For me, whenever disaster comes my way the initial reaction is panic. It is quickly followed by crying out unto Jehovah. Then their is reflection upon His past deliverance and a thankful prayer saying with confidence I know it is in Your hands Father and I know You will help me. Thank You.

Then their is calm reassurance during the wicked storms.

We are expected to call out unto Jehovah but we are also expected to have trust in His deliverance. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present in my life.

Please expand my trust in You in every trial and tribulation You are right there walking through them with me.

Please remind me of Your past deliverance to reassure me of Your present one.

I praise You and sincerely request this in the name of He who always walked and continuously walks with You now my glorious best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Have Your lamp Filled By

God give us

 For You cause my lamp to be lighted and to shine; The Lord my God illumines my darkness. Psalm 18:28 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

In order for an oil lamp to continue to shine it requires fuel.

We are like that lamp.

In order for us to continue to shine in our hearts Christs love we need our lamps to be constantly refilled. The only way to accomplish this is by spending time alone with our source of fuel. Jehovah is that source so that means we must daily spend time alone with Him. We do this by reading His love letter and instruction manual every day, it is called the Bible.

As well, we need to enjoy, not it being a mandatory exercise, spending time conversing with Him, not just whining nor being a spoiled selfish child cry babying gimme, gimme, gimme, but speaking words of love and praise.

It is a wonderful experience to just sit there and enjoy communion with Him without even speaking, neither one of us talking, we just enjoy being together.

Today and every day, take time to have your lamp filled by the Holy Spirit less its flame burn out.

Prayer: All praise and glory unto You my most gracious Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for illuminating Your awesome light into every crevice of my soul so that I am blessed with the incredible privilege of communing with You. I joyfully exalt You in the name of the brightest light of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Spare the rod?

OBEY GODS WORD

 I think a better way to say this is :To spare the rod the child will mock you.         

 How many parents laugh at the naughty deeds of a child when they should be disciplined?

Indeed there is a certain TV show that shows home made video’s. Oh how many times I have seen a child throw a temper tantrum (especially because they did not get the present they demanded for Christmas). The idiot parents sit there and laugh instead of disciplining the child.                                                      

How many parents are guilty of pampering their offspring and giving them everything they demand without making them work for it How are they going to discipline themselves when they become adults if the parents do not teach it to them when they are children                                                           

When they become teenagers and are nothing but continuous trouble for you and then you waked up for the need for discipline they will mock you.                                                                 

Then when the child grows into an adult they wail and wonder their children are so demanding, so ungrateful and so selfish.                                             

From my experience this is a sin for which the mothers and grandmothers are the worst offenders.   

When I was a teacher the first rule taught and enforced was respect. Both respect for the teacher and the teacher respecting the child. The majority of my children became well behaved and respectful. And, they loved their teacher for doing that for them.    

Parents, you are a disgrace if you do not discipline your children and the crops you sow from this damming negligence will be nothing but heartache and misery. By not disciplining them you are guilty of leading them down the road to Hell much more that Satan is.                                                              

A life without discipline is a life of misery. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) to teach me and when necessary discipline me so that I may always be an obedient child of Yours. I gratefully praise You for this treasured gift in the name of the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Has Experienced Everything We Have.

                                                   

For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize and understand our weaknesses and temptations, but One who has been tempted [knowing exactly how it feels to be human] in every respect as we are, yet without [committing any] sin. Hebrews 4:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever tried talking with someone about a problem they have not experienced and listened to their advice. As you walk away you realize that was a huge waste of time.

Is it not great to know we have a high priest that has gone through everything we have so He perfectly understand when we come unto Him with our problems.

I know for me, He is the main man to go to with all of my problems.

Sometimes He will just step back and allow me to solve them myself because He knows I am capable of it so why be lazy and depend upon Him to fix my problems when I can do it myself.

Sometimes He leads to to righteous guidance councilors (which may be just a casual conversation that Jehovah has arranged for you to meet with).

But the best time of course is when I sit down and talk with Him one on one. Sometimes He answers with questions to get at the root of the problem and sometimes He guides me to Bible verse and the Holy Spirit explains what they mean.

Then the Holy Spirit and I work together as a tag team to conquer the problem.

I am so grateful not only that Christ bore my sins on the cross but also that He suffered from everyday problems so He understands and talks with me as my most confident friend (which He is). Because Jesus walked amongst us, He has experienced everything we have and so much more. That is why we can come to Him with our cares, because he has been there, because He cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me that You are always there, that You always care and that You always bless me with the best advice and help to resolve all of my problems.

In Your wonderful name I give thank. Amen.

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

There is Nothing on Earth to Compare to It.

                                     

In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you.John 14:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One day while in a place in the mountains where folks have seldom traveled I was sitting on a hill absorbing all the awesome beauty. It was a place of beauty, peace and warmth.A voice beside me softly said:” This is but a taste of Heaven.” I looked around and no one was there. I believe I was privileged to see a glimpse of Heaven.

On another occasion I was sitting on the top of a small mountain in a remote place and there was a feeling of every molecule in my body being electrified. A voice softly said unto me:” I love you with an ever lasting love.” I believe that was Jesus and could not but help yelling at the top of my lungs: “I love you Jesus, I love you.”

These are true events.

Afterwards it felt like it was just a moment but looking at my watch it was hours that the  each experience lasted.

If that is but a taste of Heaven, there is nothing on earth to compare to it and am eagerly anticipating being with my Beloved for an eternity.

Just as the loving father in Luke’s gospel welcomed home his lost son, our Father will one day welcome us into heaven together with all others who love and trust in Jesus.” Dr. Rodney Rathmann

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with the opportunity to experience Your amazing love and the wonderful eternal home You have graciously prepared for me when I come home unto You. I eagerly anticipate the time when I shall always be with You for eternity. I exalt You in the name of my loving big brother who shall be there to greet me to Your Heavenly home with open arms Jesus Christ. Amen

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