Me First Puts You Last.

SATANS TRAP

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.                                                                                      You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up James 4:1-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Is it not true, this is what causes so many fights today, the feeling that you are the center of the universe? Because of this, you feel no qualms about stepping all over everybody else because you think you are better than anyone else. You refuse to see anyone else’s point of view. You are rude because again, you think you are the center of the universe. Maybe you are to momma and or granma, but not to the rest of us. Grow up and be a man or woman. Learn to respect others.

How about your relationship with God?

In your communion with Him do you have the gimme, gimme attitude?

Are your prayers centered around yourself? Then you cry baby because God does not give you everything you demand.

So many times I have encountered people who say they don’t believe in God (I say they say they don’t believe in God because I believe we all deep down we all know He exists. Many just refuse to accept Him because He will not give them their every desire like spoiled children and because they are haughty and refuse to submit to anyone). When I ask them why, they reply that it is because He has not answered their prayers. When asked what their prayers are they are always self centered.

Of course God will not answer those prayers (Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Gods help or guidance. That is what He wants us to do.).

My prayer is: Not my will but Thy will be done my God. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do. May my words and actions bring glory and praise to You and may they lead the lost little sheep to You.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now what is friendship with the world?

I believe it is self seeking pleasures, whether it be booze, drugs, sex or commercialism. Again, it’s all about you.

That is the life of a loser. Their life is left with a void that they do not understand why. The reason is because they do not have the heart of a servant of the most regal of kings, Jesus Christ.

The happiest people I have ever met are also the humblest.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary

I love being humble and yes most days I am very joyful (Happiness depends upon physical stimulation, joyfulness depends upon Jehovahs love beating in your heart).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy as I nurture our loving relationship which is the most joyful experience there is. I applaud You in the name of He who brings the light of joy to my heart 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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

He is Three in One.

JESUS MY BEST FRIEND

God is faithful [He is reliable, trustworthy and ever true to His promise—He can be depended on], and through Him you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:9  The Holy Bible Amplified Version                

First Jesus is our Saviour. It is only He who has the key to unlock Heavens door. There is no hoops to jump through or any religion that can open that door. Yes it seems intolerant but the truth is intolerant to lies.

Second He is my best friend. My greatest joy is when in communion with Him. Not necessarily talking about problems or victories, but just being silent and enjoying communion with Him. There is no piece of wood or sliver whether it be of paintings of saints or Buddhist (or catholic one either) statutes that you can talk with (now to talk with someone means not only do you talk with them but they talk with you as well) that will answer back.

 Third, He is my King, which means I am His free will servant.

We all serve someone or something. I can think of nothing nor no one I would rather serve than Christ. It is the greatest honor and pleasure to serve than Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah He is three in one every moment of my life. Isn’t that amazing.

“We meet God through entering into a relationship both of dependence on Jesus as our Savior and Friend and of discipleship to Him as our Lord and Master.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honor of serving my best friend whose blood has bought me an entrance through Heavens Gate to spend an eternity with You. You are truly the most amazing of all. I exalt You in You magnificent name. Amen.

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

Calls Out to Us

FOLLOW JESUS

Jesus went up on a mountain and called out the ones he wanted to go with him. And they came to him. Mark 3:13 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

The other day I heard a couple calling out for their beloved little dog. They walked the whole neighborhood looking for it- I do not know if the found it.

Jehovah spoke to me about how He calls out to us when we are lost.

The difference is that the owners of the dog did not know where it was and exhaustively looked for it. Jehovah knows where we are and calls out to us to bring us into His or back into His family if we have strayed.

Some stubbornly refuse to heed the call to their own peril both in this life and in their eternal one.

Jesus is calling, are you prepared to answer the call? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me with calling out to me. It has blessed me with the most awesome friendship there could ever be. I exalt You in Your most fantastic name. Amen

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

I Have Found That

share-the-word

 The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray. Proverbs 12: 26 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In my life I have found that the righteous give advice to help us. Most of it comes from their life experiences whether it be personal or whether it be from witnessing it in others lives. We ignore their advice at our own peril.

The wicked give advice to con you into doing something that will be to the benefit to them but will harm you. You obey their advice at your own peril. Choose wisely.

The best way to choose who to listen to when advice is given is to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide your choice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5) – LORD GOD of Truth for blessing me with sending me the Holy Spirit to guide me unto the truth to guide my way in this confusing world with so many deceptive voices crowding for my ears. I exalt You in the name of He who exemplifies truth 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Is Not a Real Christian

SERVING CHRIST

 Dear brothers and sisters,we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God. 1 Thessalonians 4:1 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A Sunday Christian is not a real Christian but a bench warmer. Sunday Christians are those that only have anything to do with Christianity on Sunday during a sermon (even then, how many are either sleeping or secretly playing video games during the sermon? How many are looking at their watches and wondering when the sermon will finally get over?).

Being a real Christian is the hardest commitment you will ever make. It means you live a life that will be mocked by those around you, especially family and friends. It means giving up your wants and desires for Jehovahs will in your life. It means suffering, hardship, and a lot of tears. Yes, this is a calling only for the weak, not the strong.                                                        

If you are strong you will depend upon yourself which only brings failure.

If you are weak you will depend upon Jehovah. That will not only bring success in His endeavors in your life but the greatest blessing of all, an extremely close relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It will bring you a fulfilling life and accomplishments like you would never dream of. It is the greatest of adventures there can ever be.

“Some Christians haven’t even attempted to think about whether or not they would die for Jesus because they haven’t really been living for Him.” — DC Talk

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the distinction of being one of Your chosen subservient servant. I laud You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you always be blessed with the strength of the Lord in Your heart and in your mind. Joseph a son Jehovah

Here is the Two Part Equation

 I will search for faithful people to be my companions. Only those who are above reproach will be allowed to serve me. Psalm 101:6 The Holy Bible, the New Living Testament Version

Here is the two part equation: if we have no faith in Jehovah here, we are useless to Him here and now. The first step is to have faith in Him.

Oh so many times Jehovah calls upon us to take a step out into the known in faith in Him. It takes great faith to follow Jehovah because He sees where He is leading us while we do not. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In every advancement of my maturity in my walk with our Heavenly Beloved the above statement is exactly what happened. There was no consultation with our Heavenly King on what was going to happen, how it was going to happen, where it was going to happen or why it was going to happen. He just said go and I obediently went (not without a lot of apprehension mind you). When we first begin this journey into the unknown called faith we tightly grasp our loving Holy Spirits hands as He leads us into the unknown.

Our next step is to go in confidence.                                                                                          The further along this road He takes us the looser our grip on Him becomes as terror is replaced by excited apprehension into where He will lead us next. Our last stop of course will be at Heavens Gate where our Beloved King Jesus Christ will be waiting for us to place a crown on our heads as He declares in a loud voice for all the Heavens to hear:Well done good and faithful servant.

If you have no faith in the future, then you have no power in the present. Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the wonderful experience of sharing the closest of friendship with You whom I adore. It is the greatest of all privilege serving such a noble King as You. I exalt You in Your awesome name. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

But by Subtraction

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The more you have, the less happy and contented you are. That is a proven fact.

Most folks are puppets in the hands of big monopolies. They say if you have this you will be happy. Then, they charge you exorbitant amounts of money to purchase their product. Because you cannot afford it, it puts you into debt. Then, next year they come out with a new and improved product and the process it repeated.

If it gets between you and Christ, get rid of it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Going into debt and working long hours only to be exhausted keeps you away from Christ.

Live a simple life, you will be much more contented.

I speak from a lot of experience. I have always lived a simple, frugal lifestyle and for the most part am very contented. I see those I grew up with being very materialistic and are the most miserable folks you ever meet.

For me, my greatest joy, and satisfaction is when sharing a conversation with Jesus. It need not be about my problems (although there is nothing wrong with that but it is not to be the only time you talk with Him). Many times it is when we are walking in His creation (nature) that we just talk about anything and everything like the best friends we are. It is so enjoyable. He opens my eyes to all the beauty around me and how He loves me and takes care of me. I am contented with His daily provision in my life.

I have lived in abundance and in abject poverty but learning to depend upon and be grateful for Jehovahs daily provisions is one of the greatest lessons learned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now I do not worry about where my next meal is coming from nor hoard things. Now I do not foolishly waste His daily provisions but use them wisely as a manner in which to show proper respect and appreciation for my Fathers provisions.

“Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction: seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment. Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied only with Christ brings contentment.” Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for patiently teaching me that my wants will never bring me satisfaction but being content in Your daily provision brings a lot of contentment, peace, appreciation, respect and peace. Next to being blessed with loving communion with You, these are the greatest of gifts You daily bless me with. I am in deep gratitude to You in the name of Your greatest gift to me 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.
