So Little Time For

PRAY EVERYWHERE

 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation. Bible in Basic English

Quick, tell me what is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

For me it is going to conversation with my Heavenly Beloved, beginning with saying good morning I love you. Then giving Him thanks and requesting His guidance through out the coming day.

Quick: what is the fist thing you do when you climb into bed at night?

For me it is giving thanks to my Heavenly Beloved for all of His blessings He has showered on my through out the day and asking for forgiveness for when I messed up. And ending with saying good night I love you.

Then, there are the numerous times through out the day when we have conversations. Sometimes it is with what is happening to me during the day. Sometimes it is thanking Him for the blessings He has given me. Sometimes it is just admiring the beauty He is sharing with me and talking about it.

Prayer should be the first thing a Christian does upon opening their eyes and the last thing they do before closing them. It should be as natural as breathing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Why is there so much running to and fro to meetings, conventions, fellowship gatherings and yet so little time for prayer?” — Andrew Bonar

Prayer: Thank you oh my deepest love Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the most wonderful blessing of all, being in Your loving presence every day. It is the most precious treasure there could ever be. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I look forward to receiving the ultimate treasure of walking with Him and talking with Him in Your Heavenly home 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

 How Much Less Will We

furnace of hell

 See to it that you do not refuse [to listen to] Him who is speaking [to you now]. For if those [sons of Israel] did not escape when they refused [to listen to] him who warned them on earth [revealing God’s will], how much less will we escape if we turn our backs on Him who warns from heaven? Hebrews 12:25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Be fair warned. Just as Jehovah gave ample warning to the Israelites before the hammer came down on them hard so too does He warn us. You ignore Him at your own peril.

Now I do not believe Jehovah will curse you with plagues however what He does is just tell you: “Okay, you refuse to listen to me and stubbornly insist on going your own ways, fine. I will just step back and allow you to reap the rewards of your destructive lifestyle.” Then you will suffer like you have never suffered before. In your suffering you will cry out unto Him to deliver you from these catastrophes but just as you turned your back on Him and refused to listen to Him, so too does He turn His back on you and refuse to listen to you.

Now if you repent with sincerity (repent means you admit what you did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness and stop doing it), He is loving and will forgive you. You must however still pay the price for your wicked ways. So say you murdered someone and are on death row. He will not deliver you from the execution but when you die you will not face His eternal judgment for that crime when you sincerely repent.

I have seen it so much in my life.

Some folks when they were young they laughed and thought they were getting away with it but they paid a very heavy price for their sins in their elder years. It aches the heart to watch to happen to those you know but they are harvesting what they planted. 

Turn your back on Jehovah and He will turn His back on you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 Prayer: I pray my Beloved Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) that I may never be idiotic enough to turn my back on You. I have witnessed the terrible consequences of such foolishness and it fills me with terror. As well my love, our loving relationship is the most priceless treasure You have blessed me with and I would be left in a spiritual lonely desert if I was ever that stupid to turn my back on You. I sincerely request this in the name of the light that guides me into an ever deeper sphere of Divine love with You Jesus Christ. Amen  

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world 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

Is He Who Trusts.

                               

He who pays attention to the word [of God] will find good, And blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired) is he who trusts [confidently] in the Lord. Proverbs 16:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I do not believe the word happy should be in the above verse but rather joy.

Happiness in physical while joy is spiritual. Joy is always supreme to happiness.

To be prosperous, to me, does not indicate material things but rather spiritual.

To trust that my sins are forgiven brings joy to my heart, which is spiritual.

To know that the present is in the hands of the all wise and all loving Father in whom I trust brings peace to my spirit.

Too know that Jehovah is guiding my life both in the present and in the future brings confidence to my spirit.

These are to be greatly admired gifts from our loving Father and to be thankful for each and every day.

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for Your amazing grace that You are always with me in both the good times and the bad. It is comforting and reassuring to know someone as awesome as You walks with me throughout my day. I exalth Thee in the name of He who walks with me and talks with me throughout each and every day Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Will Have No Pity For

My eye will have no pity on you, nor will I spare you, but I will repay you for your evil ways, while your abominations are among you; and you will know (recognize, understand) [without any doubt] that I am the Lord.’ Ezekiel 7:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

An abomination is a extreme disgust and hatred for something or someone.

So just as any sane man or woman will be disgusted with the actions of those that belong to the devils brigade called ISIS. That is an abomination in a civilized world.

So too is homosexuality an abomination before Jehovah and He repays you for your filth (Yes I believe aids, syphilis, and gonorrhea is a result of their filthy behavior. Why else is it confined to mostly the homosexual community?).

When you steal because you are too lazy to work to support your drug habit (most times it is not an addiction it is a lifestyle choice- I have worked a lot with homeless creatures so I speak from a lot of experience).

When you are disrespectful unto your parents (you know, only using them for your ATM machine while giving them nothing in return) is an abomination unto Jehovah.

On the flip side of the coin when parents are abusing their adult children (you know, when they are live in care givers and you have the means to pay them but refuse to do so. You refuse to do so because you are being stupid and being the ATM machine to those mentioned in the preceding paragraph). That is an abomination before Jehovah.

When you use people and worship things (like the latest mobile phone or car or house) that is an abomination before Jehovah.

For each of these and all other abominations you flagrantly commit before Jehovah you shall have seven times more taken from you.

The wise repent of their wicked ways and are forgiven. The fool laughs at Jehovah and pays a very severe price. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice!) that You always deliverer the right justice at the right time to the wicked to avenge their evil they have inflicted upon the righteous. I praise You in the name of He who is the Supreme Judge 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

Poured Out My Wrath On

                                   

As silver is melted in the furnace, so will you be melted in the midst of it; and you will know [without any doubt] that I the Lord have poured out My wrath on you [O Israel].’” Ezekiel 22:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Yes, Jehovahs patience only lasts so long. And, when it is exhausted look out. He knows how to hand out the appropriate punishment and it is severe.

If we are smart we repent of our offences and the and His heavy hand is lifted.

For the not so bright and the arrogant He delivers the ultimate punishment unto them. He turns His back on them and then His punishment will seem enjoyable compared to what transpires when He turns His back on you.

Just as you turn your back on Christ, so too will He turn His back on you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Because Jehovah is love, it is impossible for Him to do anything bad. But, He will see disaster coming your way and will not warn you (why should He, you refuse to listen anyway).

I believe we all experience Jehovahs wrath, both those inside His family and those outside of it, After all, we are still mortals and sometimes succumb to fleshly desires. The difference is that those inside His family repent, like David did and are forgiven (although we must still suffer the consequences of our foolish actions). Those outside of the family, their lives at first slowly and then in time accelerates into complete disaster and a living Hell.

Prayer: Oh please Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless those with whom You are putting through the furnace to not abandon You less they suffer the ultimate judgement which is an eternity in damnation in Hell. I plead their case in the whose blood washes all of their filthy condemnable sins Jesus Christ. Amen

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

 Trust In and Rely

                             

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes time and experience to trust in the Lord, it does not happen all at once.

It has taken many decades and trials and tribulations to learn to trust in the Lord in every aspect of my life.

Now, I do not make decisions but rather trust in the Lord for His divine guidance.

Of course there will be times of testing when the Lord see’s how good of a student I am in what He has taught me. Sometimes I still fail but that is okay.

Do you remember when you were in school?

Did you pass every test that was given to you?

Of course not.

That is not bad it just means you have not learned the lesson good enough so it must be taught to you again.

So too it is with the Lord. When you admit your failure, apologize for it and am willing to learn from it Jehovah forgives you and proceeds to teach the lesson again. It will not happen the same way because then you are ready for it and that is not trust.

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with the patience and forgiveness when my faith in You was weak. Thank You that You have slowly and with forbearance strengthen my trust in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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