Close To the Brokenhearted.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin). Psalms 34:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you have lost a loved one through death or divorce or because they have left the nest, your heart is crushed and your heart is broken, why not take it to Jesus?

When walking amongst us did not His family divorce itself from Him and did He not experience broken heartedness when one of His loved ones died? Did He not suffer separation from our beloved Father on the cross?

I have lost many loved ones and He was there to comfort me as no one else could or would.

When you lose your job or home why not take it to Jesus?

Did He not experience homelessness? Didn’t he and His disciple sleep in the wilderness where there was bandits, scorpions and many man eating predators?

I have been homeless and living in a tent surrounded by bears. It was taking security that

I went to sleep with no concern of being attacked while sleeping

Did He not lose His job as a carpenters son (He did not go right from being a carpenters son to His ministry.)?

There have been many times when, through no fault of my own, I was released from a company (usually because they went bankrupt) that I believed I would be at for all of my working years. It was He picked me up when I felt like giving up and going out and pounding the pavement and or upgrading my skills and getting another place to work. For those of us over fifty that are considered unhirable why not ask Jesus how you can be blessed with self employment?

When you are crushed and brokenhearted because of illness, didn’t Jesus experience the pain of whipping and beating in His body and the agony of hanging on the cross? I was a sickly boy with very bad asthma and water on the knee. It was only in reading the Bible and talking with my beloved Jesus that a lot of that pain was endured and I felt His presence the closest to me.

So will He not be close to you and heal you spiritually when you experience these things (He may not heal your relationships or get your job or home back or heal your illness but will He not as a loving Savior be close to you and heal your spirit)?

Indeed may these not be viewed as a burden but rather as a blessing?

It is in our hard times that we are the closest to Jesus. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present ) for Your life giving presence with me through my oh so many trials and tribulations. If You were not there I do not believe I would have lived through oh so many of them. I give thanks for this wonderful loving care through Your son who experienced everything I have and so much more Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovahs sweet love envelope you today a and every day.

I Certainly Don’t Recommend

GODS DELIGHTS

The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Psalms 25:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you want to live an easy comfortable life do not become a Christian.

A Christians life can be expected to be one filled with sorrow, pain, hardship and loneliness.

You will be filled with sorrow at the ones who reject Christ (especially those in your maternal family) and by extension ostracize you. You will not be invited to family get togethers, weddings, funerals or anniversaries. It will cut deep.

You will suffer pain of never being invited to get togethers by those you work with. You will be treated like a freak and mocked.

You will suffer loneliness as Christ takes you away from comforts of this life into service for Him. You will feel as if you are the only person in the world because everyone around you rejects you mocks you and ostracizes you. It will cost you your family, your friends, your career, maybe your health, your financial security.

You will face hardship because of what you have to surrender unto Christ (in the beginning of your walk you will not be sure if He will supply your needs).

If this sounds like to heavy of a price to pay let us look at the rewards:

You can be sure that no matter the family and friends who reject you Christ will bring to you a Christian communion that will be closer than any maternal family member or worldly friend.

No matter recession or physical injury or anything that hampers you finances Christ will always make sure you have a comfortable place to live, clothes on your back and food in your belly.

In your hardship it will bring you ever closer to Christ which will expand your love, admiration, trust and friendship with Him, which is the best treasure of them all.

It is not: is it worth giving up everything to become a Christian but rather why in the world would I desire anything but Christ in my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  “I didn’t go to religion to make me ‘happy.’ I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to endure and prosper (yes prosper because the prosperity is in the enlargement of our eternal love affair) during my suffering because of my association with You. I exalt You in the name of He gladly enduring the most horrible suffering for me Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Let Us Just Be

follow the river of life

Jesus said to him, “I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the[real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see it all the time on the idiot box and on the internet:We see so much hate in this world. Let us just be kind to one another and it will make this hate go away. It is like they foolishly believe that by their will they can conquer satan (which they do not even believe in, which is a huge mistake) and make the world like Shang Gra La. That was a fantasy world and so is their belief.

Although we cannot bring world wide peace, through the Holy Spirit we can bring peace to our families, to our neighborhoods and to ourselves.

The only way in which to receive the blessing of the Holy Spirit is through Jesus Christ.

This infuriates folks because of their selfish manner in which says I will not surrender my will to Christ but rather I will do what I want to. As such, it infuriates society to hate those preaching about the Prince of Peace to the extent of having a flaming desire to extinguish these voices with violence (which is ironic because that is what they are preaching against in the first place) even to the point of death.

“How would telling people to be nice to one another get a man crucified? What government would execute Mister Rodgers or Captain Kangaroo?” — Philip Yancey

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your supreme peace through the Holy Spirit. May I be blessed to be a conduit of this amazing love to those walking in a cold dark world. I give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

The Fools Laugh.

FURNACE OF HELL

 I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless” (Malachi 3:5). The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The sorcerers pretend they have power equal to or superior to Jehovah and use to to fleece the weak minded out of their money. They may get away with it for a while but Jehovah is a God of justice and will strike them swiftly with no warning and show no mercy towards them.

The adulterers stupidly believe they will not get caught nor become infected with sexual diseases like syphilis or aids. If they do they do not care if they infect their mates. They are playing a fools game and Jehovah is a God of justice and will strike them swiftly with no warning and show no mercy towards them.

There are those who will swear that lies are the truth to cover up for their lies or lies of their family or friends to escape punishment. They do not care if innocent ones go to jail or have their lives destroyed. Jehovah is a God of justice and will strike them swiftly with no warning and show no mercy towards them. The end result will be their lives are demolished and their will be no remedy for the pain they shall suffer.

There are many employers that cheat their workers out of their wages and laugh because they are getting away with it. They are living a fools dream. Jehovah is a God of justice and will strike them swiftly with no warning and show no mercy towards them. They will be left with nothing and end up living in the gutter where they belong.

There are many children that constantly cheat their parents out of money even when they are widows or widowers so they can live a life of luxury while their mom or dads do without. Jehovah is a God of justice and will strike them swiftly with no warning and show no mercy towards them. When their parents dies there will be nobody for them to free load off of and they will lose everything. I cannot speak for orphans because I have not seen it.

Oh the extreme wailing that occurs when Jehovahs strong merciless hand comes crushing down on the wicked and they pay for their vile deeds. When the wicked rip the innocent off the fools laugh because they foolishly believe they are getting away with it. They are living in a fools dream which will suddenly turn into an unimaginable Hell both here on earth and for an eternity in Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice!) for delivering appropriate justice in Your time, in Your manner. It is reassuring to know that justice will be done by Your hands even though it appears as though the wicked are going unpunished. I exalt You in the name of the Supreme Judge 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

Three in One.

joygiftfromgod

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:25 New Living Translation Bible

It is a bitterly cold day outside today and I had no intention of leaving the house, but, the Holy Spirit gently nagged me to go for my morning walk.

Before leaving I am grateful the Holy Spirit inspired me to get just the right cat photo’s and write cute inspirational birthday greeting for mom and the pastors wife (the have birthdays a few days apart) from the computer.

Today I am grateful the Holy Spirit nagged me to wear sunglasses even though it was cloudy outside. With the wind chill factor it was minus thirty. Without the sunglasses my eyes would have been injured in the hard, biting wind.

I am grateful the Holy Spirit had me go into the bulk store today because it was seniors discount day (that is not what I am grateful for) because when in there He suggested I buy white chocolate and licorice to make two different birthday cakes for mom.

I am grateful the computer at the computer store I went into to accepted the pdf format used to download Christian books for mom(sometimes they do, sometimes they do not).

 I am grateful that the store I went into to have the birthday photo cards printed off at had some good markdowns and it was the last day of the sale. All these store are in the same mall so I got three in one.

I am grateful that the Holy Spirit educated me in the proper manner in which to deal with the obnoxious neighbour. He reminded me of how to deal with them in the workplace and in the family. That method is being carried over with the neighbour.

I love the unique way in which Jehovah guides me every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with the Holy Spirits guidance in the mundane events in my life as well as the monumental ones. They are all equally important to You and equally important to us to obey if we desire to receive Your blessings. I praise You in the name of He who was obedient unto You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

God Cannot Give Us

christ's peace

 “Glory to God in the highest [heaven], And on earth peace among men with whom He is well-pleased.” Luke 2:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice the part in this verse that says that Jehovah blesses those with whom He is well pleased with peace? 

What incentive would Jehovah have to bless those who reject Him with peace? Especially, when you consider, that those who displease Jehovah do so in an act of rebellion unto Him.

Would you give a naughty son or daughter a gift? No? Why not? Is it because they do nothing but cause you grief and chances are they are abusive to other family members?

So too it is with Jehovah. Those that reject Him cause Him a lot of grief. As well, they do nothing but make life miserable for those that are in His family.

Is there no peace in your life? Could it be that it is because you are arrogant and naughty towards Jehovah and those in His family?

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. C. S. Lewis

Prayer:Thank you El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy by being in communion with You. There is nothing to compare with the exhilaration of being in Your ;loving presence. I exalt You in the name of He whose very name causes my heart to dance with joy Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Stand at the Door.

voice of god

Behold, I stand at the door and continually knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him (restore him), and he with Me. Revelation 3:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jesus comes a knocking, it is beneficial to us if we open the door. When He enters our hearts He begins a life long process of molding us to emulate Him. The more He reveals of Himself and our Heavenly Father and our Wise Teacher (the Holy Spirit) to us the deeper our will be to come closer to Him.

It is interesting after we have walked with Him for a while how much He has subtly changes our preferences in life unbeknownst to us.

When we reflect back on our past we are shocked at the things we did and believed in.

It is quite interesting when we move away from our community we were raised in and come home after a few years and folks are shocked by how much we have changed. The old things are actually detestable to us and the things we desire those that knew us cannot understand. We feel like an alien amongst our family and old friends.

We are all born into the world. It is Christ that comes unto us. If we accept His invitation then we will spend a lifetime where he makes Himself more appealing and the world more distasteful. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with bringing the Holy Spirit to work with me a make over of my mind and spirit to create in me the beautiful child You know I am capable of being. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood washed my filth away Jesus Christ. Amen

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