This Is a Dangerous Action

FURNACE OF HELL

 

 While you have the Light, believe and trust in the Light [have faith in it, hold on to it, rely on it], so that you may become sons of Light [being filled with Light as followers of God].”Jesus said these things, and then He left and hid Himself from them. John 12:36 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because the people refused to believe in Jesus He walked away from them. This is a dangerous action we all need to comprehend, especially those that claim to be His followers.

Without faith, which means trust, in Christ in every aspect of your life you are useless unto Him and He will walk away from you.

Now, we all have doubts but overriding them is the belief that Jesus is real an a part of our life.

When we are baby Christians it is a common occurrence to have weak faith. Faith comes from experience.

But, we are expected to continuously grow in our faith as Jehovah continuously shows Himself faithful unto us.

To do anything less is to deny Jehovah’s faithfulness unto you which is a horrendous sin. He will only tolerate it so long and then wash His hands of you and walk away. This is the most disastrous occurrence that can occur in anyones life and has Hell for its reward.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to this child of Your with whom You so deeply love. Please bless me to continue to strengthen my faithfulness in You as this draws me ever closer into Your loving arms. I humbly request this in the name of He who was faithful unto You all the way to the suffering, humiliating cross Jesus Christ, my Beloved Savior. Amen

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

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

To Surrender is Brave

God’s program of instruction which is grounded in faith [and requires surrendering the entire self to God in absolute trust and confidence].1 Timothy 1:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 I surrender to Jehovah completely. He does not accept anything else. That is the reason I love that song:”I surrender all”. It is one of the anthems of my life.

It has taken me decades to learn to trust Jehovah in every aspect of my life.

There has been so many times He has asked (Jehovah never demands anything of His children. He is too much of a gentleman to do that) to do things that seemed totally absurd to me. When I surrendered my will unto His, He accomplished amazing things in my life and through my life.

There were so many times I was completely convinced in a certain course of action but He asked me not to take it. It seemed insane not to disobey Him and go my own way using my limited wisdom. Indeed many mocked me for obeying a make believe God in the sky. In retrospect I am glad to have obeyed Him because those that did take that way ended up in total disaster.

Surrender is not an act of bravery but an act of trust and love unto He who loves us so much more that we could ever love Him back.

My life is a testimony that He never leads us the wrong way nor does not warn us of the wrong trail to travel down in life. He has a one hundred percent success rate. Now that is the type of adviser I wisely listen to and obey.

“Surrender is deeply misunderstood as an act of weakness. Surrender is the bravest and most lucid thing a human ever does, and that’s why it’s so precious to the Divine.” -Andrew Harvey 

Prayer: I surrender body, spirit and mind totally unto You Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) as the only voice I shall follow in every aspect of my life. This is done in the knowledge that because You love me You only desire what is best for me. Because You are the wisest of all, You know what is best for me. In humbly surrender unto You my Beloved Heavenly King I do make this pledge. Amen

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

Never Pin Your Whole Faith On

 The foolishness of man undermines his way [ruining whatever he undertakes]. Proverbs 19:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my younger years there were those that I thought could walk on water and could do no wrong. Every time they disappointed me.

As well I am sure I have disappointed others.

We are not to allow anyone to even be Jehovahs equal much less surpass Him. To do so is a sure fire way to disaster every time.

Unfortunately most folks today will foolishly put their trust in anyone or anything other than Jehovah. Just look at all the simpleton gurus on TV and social media that have throngs of dimwitted followers. The same goes for religion (including Christianity). That is how wicked cults evolve that destroy so many lives.

“Never, never pin your whole faith on any human being: not if he is the best and wisest in the whole world. There are lots of nice things you can do with sand; but do not try building a house on it.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: It is in You and You alone Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) that I place my complete and total faith in. This is done because of the fact that because You love me You will only bless me with the best Heaven has to offer.

In Your supreme name I do sincerely make this oath. 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

Show Real Desire For

                                     

Repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life] Matthew 3:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a proverb that says there is no helping an alcoholic until they want to help themselves. This is oh so very true.

Well, it is the same with the Christian. We can call out to Jehovah to help us with problems and we wonder why He is silent. Perhaps He is waiting to see just how much you desire to take the medicine to solve the problem.

So say you are calling out to Jehovah due to financial restraints. He is waiting to see if you are willing to take responsibility for your foolish spending, like paying extravagant money for a cup of coffee you can make at home for a fraction of the price. You know that is foolish but have pride to be one of the gang at school or work. Why should Jehovah offer any help to you when you refuse to take the first step? If you will not take that first step on your own, you most certainly will not follow His suggestions on how to improve your situation.

As well, He is seeing just how much faith (which means trust) we have in Him. The next part of the equation may mean a huge leap of faith.

So say you are having relationship problems but when He directs you to Godly councilors, you do not trust Him in His selection of councilor and you refuse to listen and obey to the advice He gives. It may sound insane to you but you have to take that first step out of faith in the Lord. Then He takes you by the hand through the rest of the steps. Finally there will be success. This may take years to accomplish.

“God can change our circumstances, but sometimes He waits for us to show real desire for change as well as our faith in Him.” — Anne Graham Lotz

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) enable me to always have a deep desire to be obedient unto Your providential advice.

Please nurture in me a faith that grows stronger in You day by day.

I humbly request this in the name of He who was always obedient unto You all the way to the cross 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

He Who Has a Head of Wax

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.

The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.

Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).

Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me).  Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).

Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).

Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Those who have a head of wax must not walk out in the sun (know your weaknesses) Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.

Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.

Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.

I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses 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

Why Did You Doubt?

 

Immediately Jesus extended His hand and caught him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are baby Christians it is natural to doubt Christ because we have little to no experience with Him.

As we mature in our walk with Him our faith (which means trust) in Him is to grow until it is as solid as the rock we stand upon. To do otherwise is a willful act of disobedience unto Him. Now there will be times of testing. When we fail and repent the sin is forgiven.

But, the lesson will be continuously repeated until our faith is solidified so we can take the next growth in our relationship with Him.

This pattern continues all the way to our death bed when we have solid faith that He is taking us to the second Heaven ( no we will not be with Christ when we die. That only occurs after that Judgement Day. To preach that we will be in Heaven with Christ immediately after death is a lie).

To doubt Christ is a insult. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always with me, guiding me, teaching me, protecting me and providing for me with Your immeasurable love.  May I never doubt the One I know for sure loves me more than anyone else ever could. I praise You in the name of He who walks beside me every day Jesus Christ. Amen

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