Where is Your Tabernacle?

                           

The tabernacle is the meeting place with Jehovah. It is a special place with no interruptions and is quiet.

Mine is in my tent in the back yard.

It is here we talk one on one, it is here He speaks to me as I read His holy word.

It is here He listens while I sing love songs unto Him.

It is here that I take shelter from the trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

It is here I thank Him in the morning for all His blessings great and small. It is here I say good morning my Love, I love you every morning.

It is here that I thank Him for all blessings great and small that He has abundantly blessed me with throughout the day.

It is here I say good night, I love You my cherished one before going peacefully off to sleep at night.

We all need our own tabernacles where we can be alone with Jehovah every day.

Where is yours?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with a sacred place in which to commune with You. It is one of my most cherished blessings. I exalt You for this holy gift in the name of Your best gift unto me Jesus Christ. Amen. Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year.

The Best Teaching Manual Ever.  

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 New International Version

Here’s the book that answers all you questions.

You have a question about life?

This book answers all your questions. About friends, marriage, raising children, investing, health, anger, sadness, worry. You name it and this book has the answers. It’s called of course, the Bible.

Any event that you need guidance for, may I suggest you look it up in a Bible concordance, the answer is there. My personal favorite is biblegateway.com.

A wise investment is spending time reading this book every day, I prefer first thing in the morning. Then, just talk to God like He is your best friend and confidante, which He is. When He answers your question, thank Him for it and obey His divine instruction. He will never lead you wrong. It may not be what you want to hear, but it is what is best.

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 New International Version

It will guide you through your dark days.

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalms 119:105 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit my teacher) for being so patient and wise in teaching me the wisdom on the best instruction manual for life, Gods own word. I give thanks in the name of the best teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Will Surely Suffer

                                             

He who puts up security and guarantees a debt for an outsider will surely suffer [for his foolishness],
But he who hates (declines) being a guarantor is secure [from its penalties]. Proverbs 11:15
Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is something you need to consider before you co-sign for anything.

I know many elderly folks who have co-signed loans for their childrens house and or a new car. The children refuse to pay the loan and the parents are stuck paying it for them, many times including having to sell their own homes ( I do not know how anybody can live with themselves doing that).

Before you co-sign anything do a thorough back ground check on them.

Now of course they can line up scam artists to lie for them.

But, be wise and go to the truest Character reference there is.

His name is Jehovah and with Him there is no secrets.

When He reveals the truth to you stand by His choice on whether to co-sign or not. It will prevent a lot of financial hardship and bad feelings in the family and with good time friends.

Yes family is the worst offenders.

If they are not reliable DO NOT CO-SIGN. If they get pouty just stand firm and inform them that their credit from past experiences is substandard. Come back when you have learnt to grow up ( and how can they grow up if you keep on bailing them out?).

If that means cutting ties with them, good riddance to bad rubbish.

I know from a lot of bad experiences myself and by life is better off without them in it.

I have met many who when you have money they are your best friends. When the money runs out I am a stranger to them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) bless me with Your Divine defense of wisdom and strength to protect myself from the scheming wiles of free loaders which would bankrupt me if they could while giving nothing in return. I humbly request this in the name of He who always exposed evil leeches Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Who has Borne the Scars

                                         

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was in Asia, met Asian Christians and informed them I was a Christian the first question they asked was how much have I suffered for Christ. They call most Christians in the west marshmallows because they have the feel good Christ not the real one. When it comes time to suffer for Christ they either walk, or run away saying: “That is not what I signed up for!” Upon coming home to Canada it was shocking to see just how true this was.

Ask any so called Christian how much they have suffered for Christ and see how many answer in the affirmative and how many of them look at you like you are insane.

Oh we all suffer from time to time, welcome to life, but how many are willing to suffer intentionally for Christ?

We may not receive physical lashes but we will receive brutal verbal ones which slash much deeper ( especially when it comes from family and former friends).

Oh we may not be in a physical prison but we may be in a one in social groups where no one will talk with you at work or school ( believe me it makes for a long day and many times you feel as if you are the only person in the world).

We may not receive physical blows but we will receive verbal ones as we are viciously laughed at, mocked, tormented and made the butt of jokes at work, at school, in church or any other social setting. These hurt much more than physical ones.

Can you think of any other manner in which we will suffer for Christ or that you have suffered for Christ?

To see a true Christian is to see one who has borne the scars for Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the privilege of suffering for You like You suffered for me. I know that this suffering brings us closer together and blesses me with appreciating You more and more because You walk through the suffering with me. I praise You in Your strong name. Amen.

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

He is All You Need.

                                 

Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Psalm 37:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The desires of your heart is different from the desires of the flesh.

The flesh desires fleshly things which is unfulfilling and temporary. Your new mobile phone cannot love you anymore than your new car or house. Your children and friends will disappoint you and will in time leave you. Your desire for self gratification is like a drug that addicts you and leaves you feeling empty and unloved.

The desires of the heart are for the spiritual blessings that can only be satisfied by nurturing a loving relationship with Jehovah. As such our petitions are for more and more of a deeper loving relationship with Him which He joyously abundantly supplies beyond our wildest imaginations.

When you have nothing left but Jehovah, you will discover He is all you need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for daily providing me with all the physical needs of the day and thank you thank you for abundantly blessing me with the most loving relationship there could ever be, the one with You. I exhalation to You in the name of my Beloved best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Am in Thy Presence.

 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah is the best guidance Councillor there is.

He should be, He made us for a specific purpose and the wise follow the path of life He has predestined for them to walk. As we obey His choices for us we experience a oneness with Him which blesses us with a Divine joy which nothing can compare with.

The pleasures are communion with Him and seeing the fruit of our Divine labor. The ultimate pleasure is being blessed with communion with Him in eternity forevermore.

“Help me, Lord, to remember that religion is not to be confined to the church… nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that every where I am in Thy Presence.” Susanna Wesley

Prayer: Oh how I exalt Thee Jehovah Pryyand God is my best friend, my most cherished love for the privilege of sharing loving moments with You. They are the most treasured time of my life. I extol Thee in the name of my best friend with whom I cherish every moment we are together Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Wants to Show Himself.

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

This does not occur naturally to us, especially the older we get. In our walk with Jehovah trust will not happen the instant we become Christians and I do not believe we will ever completely trust Him until we get to Heaven. The more we trust Him, the more experiences

He will present unto us to challenge us to grow stronger in our faith in Him.

Even when we do not have faith in Him, He will show Himself to be faithful unto us.

We will feel shame because of our lack of faith but even in our failures they will be used to strengthen our faith in Him.

I know in my decades long walk with Him my faith in Him grows stronger and stronger but, sometimes a crisis occurs and even though I have faith in Him there is still some worry in my heart.

Faith is also spiritual so as long as you are looking for Jehovah in your physical life ( like always whining to Him gimme gimme gimme like He is a genie in a bottle or you only call upon Him in a catastrophe) you will never attain strong faith in Him.

“God doesn’t want us to know that He is faithful just because the Bible says so, but He wants to show Himself faithful in our lives.” Robert Ekh

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand God is my friend, for blessing me with a true friend that always guides me and stands beside me in every step of my walk with You. Please bless me with more and stronger faith in Your guidance upon the path we walk, especially when I cannot see where You are guiding me. I exalt You in the name of my best friend with whom I cherish walking with every day Jesus Christ. Amen.

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