Have You Ever Suffered From?

REPENT OR ELSE

 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Have you ever suffered from constipation for a few days?

It feels as if hands of fire are gripping your guts, and your head is going to explode.

Think of how relieved you feel when you finally have a bowel movement. Afterwards you feel light as air and feels pretty good huh?

Now think about how you feel when you repent of your sins. Think of how those sins eat at your soul affecting not only it but your physical health as well. When you repent, that filth is excreted from your soul like a spiritual bowel movement. Should we not be grateful to the one who makes forgiveness possible just as we are relieved from physical constipation?

The Holy Spirits conviction is the best spiritual enema you will ever have for better spiritual health. It flushes the filth of sin form the spirit quite effectively.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) – Is. 49:26, 60:16 for blessing me with conviction which brings me unto repentance which blesses me with redemption. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood made redemption possible 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.

I May Not Understand

follow your ways

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. The Holy Bible New Living Translation


I may not understand how everything will work out, but I trust you.
I don’t see a way, but I know you will make a way.
I have faith at this very moment you are touching hearts, opening doors, and lining up the right break and opportunities.
Things look dark and bleak now, but I have faith that my dawn is coming!
In Jesus’ name, Amen! Anonymous

“[Christians], at their best, know that often they don’t know. They do not have all the answers. They do not have God in their pocket. We cannot answer every question that any bright boy in the back row might ask. We have only light enough to walk by.” — Howard A. Johnson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) Psalm 20: 9 that even when I do not see the way, I trust in Your Divine providence to save the lost and guide those walking in darkness into Your brilliant light of love. I thank You in the name of He who is the light of the world 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 are Two Important Steps in this Verse

voice of god

Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided. Proverbs 16: 6 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important steps in this verse.

The first part is that through our love for Jehovah we feel shame for our sin so we repent of it. Jehovah for His part then forgives us of that sin.

“The truth is, living in agreement with God will bring His conviction when we are disobedient. Conviction may feel like a negative thing, but it’s just as much a part of God as His smile. He is committed to making our lives work in Him, and He will use the strength and power of His conviction to let us know when we are outside His will. It may feel bad, but conviction is God at work in us.” — David Edwards

The second part is when we are obedient unto the Holy Spirits guidance He directs us away from places and things that would tempt us to sin. It does not mean we will be protected from evil because it is all around us and sometimes strikes us personally.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness when I mess up and honestly repent. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to guide me along the road to Heaven You have chosen for me to take and for helping me to stay upon said road. I praise You in Your wise name. 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

Carries Us to the Sea Of

following chtists example

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness Galatians 5:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We emulate the one we love and idolize.

As Christians that means we are to transform ourselves to behave as our best friend Jesus showed by His example while here on earth. We are to be led by the Holy Spirit where He has specific plans prepared for us. It is difficult at first (speaking from first hand knowledge) but becomes as natural as breathing the more we are obedient unto His direction. Now take this to heart and never forget it. Even though the ones we are gracious to may be ungrateful (which from experience they are) there are those who are watching that it will have a profound effect on.

One time when in China I used to give food instead of money to beggars (for which the vast majority was very angry for). After about a month I noticed many of the folks around that area were giving food to the beggars instead of nothing. This was a curious behavior because the beggars are usually ignored. Then the Lord brought enlightenment to me that they were emulating my actions. Wow.

And, remember this: “There is no small act of kindness that is not great in Heaven.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

“The stream of spontaneous acts of Godly kindness carries us to the sea of contentment and peace.” — Constance Hurst-Howard

One thing to remember as well as that there are certain area’s we are not to go to because they are unworthy and nothing good will come of our actions. Yes there were some area’s Jesus refused to preform any miracles in because of their unbelief so it would have been a waste of time. That is why it is imperative to depend upon the Holy Spirits guidance. He knows where to best invest your time, efforts and finances.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with joy in my heart and peace in my mind when I obey Your guidance to preform spontaneous acts of kindness to others. May it be a floodlight for others to see Your astounding love. I thank You in the name of He who preformed the most incredible acts of kindness during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

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

In Faithfulness You Have

repent

“Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn Your statutes. I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are righteous, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.” (Psalm 119:67, 71, 75) The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some times intentionally some times unintentionally, we all stray from Christ. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide you back to Him.

If you are stubborn and obstinate, He loves you too much to allow you to walk down the path of ruin so He will send you affliction to bring you back.

I believe that happens to all of us Christians no matter how long we have walked with our Heavenly best friend (Jesus).

When you go astray Jehovah will afflict you to bring you back to the fold like a good parent disciplines their child when they are naughty. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) for smiting me when I have gone astray of the path You have chosen for this humble servant to take. I understand that sometimes You have to be the oak even though You prefer to be a willow. I exalt You in the name of the King who administers appropriate means to correct His servants Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

But a Living Presence

.                                                                                                                      

But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Galatians 5:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It shows in our daily lives whether or not we are Christians.

I go by the motto: Do not tell me, show me.”

How unselfish are you with your tithes( yes we are still to give a tenth) and for that matter how much more do you give? Now if you are financially challenged you can give of your time which is perhaps more valuable than your money.

Do you have the joy of Christ in your lives (happiness is physical but joy is spiritual) or are you a Debbie Downer, always complaining?

How much peace do you have when dealing with challenging situations (now we all have our breaking points but that is to be the exception to the rule)?

How kind are you to others, like shoveling the snow for a senior or cutting their lawn in the summer?

Are you faithful in your daily life unto Christ or is it just for an hour on Sunday?

These are but a few important questions that we need to honestly ask ourselves.

If there is any area lacking there is only one answer: pray man, pray, that Jehovah reveals to you any and every area in which you are weak in and to guide you to the proper course of action to take, including asking Him for the strength to shore up these weaknesses.

This should be done on a daily basis because the weaknesses can and do sneak in subtly without or knowledge.

“Christianity is not a theory or speculation, but a life; not a philosophy of life, but a living presence.” Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Abba (God our Father) may You please bless me with Your Holy attributes every day so that I may bless others to be a light that shines in a dark world and bring the lost into Your most amazing family. I humbly request this in the name of my big brother 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

Heaven is Full Of.

 

The reward of humility [that is, having a realistic view of one’s importance] and the [reverent, worshipful] fear of the Lord Is riches, honour, and life. Proverbs 22:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

“Humility is described in the dictionary as: the absence of any feelings of being better than others or lower than others and reverence is profound adoring awed respect

Only the humble can approach Jehovah’s holy throne because they know that they are not greater than Him. They know they need to depend upon Him and be respectful and obedient towards Him.

In return Jehovah blesses them with spiritual riches beyond imagination and nothing can compare to them, especially the Divine love Jehovah bountifully blesses them with every day.

We worship Jehovah because of His numerous blessings of love, joy, peace, comfort, strength and protection He daily blesses us with as well as His amazing friendship.

Honour is described as faithfulness to high moral standards and no one has as high a moral standard as Jehovah. This is a blessing because we avoid many destructive lifestyle choices that only bring ruin, pain and shame to those who live a dishonourable life. It is also described as an asset that brings praise.

Angles shall greet those of Godly honour with songs of praise as they enter into Heavens gate.

And finally it is something given in recognition of achievement and Christ shall honour us with a crown upon our heads when He greets us in Heaven.

Heaven is full of the humble, Hell is full of proud. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Humility is the Christian’s greatest honour; the higher men climb, the farther they are from heaven.” Burder

Of course the life is not just an eternal one in Heaven but also one of great oneness of walking daily in communion with Christ which is the greatest life of all.

Prayer: Thank you Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the Divine wisdom You have bestowed upon me to be a humble honourable child of my Beloved Father in Heaven. I exalt You in the name of His most honorable, humble child Jesus Christ. Amen.

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