That is What We Are!

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

 See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 New Living Translation

If you notice with my quotes they are always from: Joseph a son of Jehovah. That is because that is exactly what I am, a son of Jehovah.

When we accept Christ as our Saviour it is by His sacrifice that we become children of the Divine God. Therefore, that makes you a son or daughter of Jehovah.

Has kind of nice ring to it does it not?

Now do not go getting a big head about it and becoming pompous. Jesus is Jehovahs most special son and He was never pompous so what right do we have to be so either?

If we desire to know the proper manner in which is the royal protocol of Jehovahs kingdom we need to study how is most cherished Son behaved as He walked amongst us.

“The Son of God became the Son of man so that the sons of men might become the sons of God.” — Terry Fullam

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the supreme privilege of adopting me into Your Holy Family. It is the most precious gift to be ever given. May I always be blessed to live a life that consistently brings glory and honour to Your Sacred name. I praise You in the name of my cherished big brother 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.

They Want Something From Him.

WORSHIP

 And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross daily[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]. Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many times have you seen children give a grandma a great big hug because she bought them something they wanted? They do not love grandma, they love the gift she has bought them.

How many folks only love Jesus because they want something from Him?

How many are willing to suffer for Him and because of Him?

Look around you and think of what is near and dear to your heart. Would you put it on the alter and sacrifice it to Christ (if it is someone or a pet, please do not physically sacrifice it)? By that, I mean would you give it up in order to become a servant of the most high King? So we will say you are living in a nice home in a nice neighborhood, if Christ called upon you to sell the house, give the money to a charity of His choosing and live in a ghetto, would you do it?

Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, including me.

Would you be obedient unto His commands?

If not, then you are not a true Christian but a marshmallow one. Think of the one you love the most.

If becoming a true Christian meant that they would hate you and disown you, would you sacrifice that relationship for Christ? That means you will never see them or speak to them for the rest of your life. Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, I have witnessed it numerous times in Asia.

“Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly Kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many desirous of consolation, but few of tribulation. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities befall them.” — Thomas à Kempis

Prayer: Thank you for the privilege of enduring numerous trials and tribulations in my relationship with You Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend). It has blessed me with coming into and ever deeper everlasting loving relationship with You my best friend because of these sufferings. I exalt You in Your wonderful name. Amen.

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

He Has Not Learned

christ, will lead

 While we were still helpless [powerless to provide for our salvation], at the right time Christ died [as a substitute] for the ungodly. Romans 5:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When first baptized by the Holy Spirit I was so overwhelmed with gratitude that there was repeated attempts at attempts to serve Christ to prove worthy of His gift. Yes some of them succeeded but there was a feeling that something was left out. That something was slowly revealed to me by The Holy Spirit that it does not matter how much service committed unto Christ it is not good enough.

It is a gift given and we are to appreciate the gift.

Try living by the Ten Commandments for a day and see how far you fall short of living the life prescribed by Jehovah of the ancient Israelite’s.

“If any man ascribes anything of salvation, even the very least thing, to the free will of man, he knows nothing of grace, and he has not learned Jesus Christ rightly” Martin Luther

So, if you are attempting to make yourselves worthy of Christs sacrifice by service before warned. It is meaningless to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Now, once you have become a servant of Christ He will have specific work work you to do in His kingdom. That is done out of love and respect for our Heavenly King, not out of obligation for the sacrifice made.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for the horrible, agonizing sacrifice You paid on the cross to sanctify me in our Heavenly Fathers presence. I praise You in Your most 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 God Isn’t.

BE STRONG AND WAIT

Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Psalm 27:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

In todays instant society it is difficult to learn to wait. That is good because it teaches patience and faith.

It is a little better for my generation and those preceding me because we grew up waiting a lot, that was just a part of life.

However, it is still difficult waiting when it is not day or weeks but years that we have to wait.

Jehovah is not only a giving God but a God of wisdom.

Many times when we respectfully ask of Him and He does not answer right away it is because we are not mature enough to receive the gift.

Would you give a motorcycle to an eight year old child (I have seen many idiot parents do so with disastrous results and then blame everyone but themselves for their own stupidity)? Why not? Because they are not mature enough to handle and care for it that is why.

Every time we take matters in our own hands and attempt to get what we ask for instead of waiting for Jehovah it ends in disaster.

“The trouble is that I’m in a hurry, but God isn’t.” — Phillips Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being so wise and faithful so as to bless me with Your blessings in the appropriate time and manner. Thank you that through this process You have taught me patience and faith in Your providence. May I be blessed to emulate this blessing of patience with all those that I encounter today. I praise You in the name of He who had super natural patience with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Recycle Man

do not allow them to control you

Today I am grateful that the Lord had me sleep in as late as He did. Normally I get up early in the morning, however, today I slept in. This was a blessing.

Moms nephew came for a visit and was gone by the time I came in the house (I sleep out in our Tabernacle, a tent, which is where I enjoy communion with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit every day).

He is nothing but trouble. He is a drug abuser, drunk, thief and trouble maker. She for some strange reason likes him. I would not spit on the best side of him if he had one.  I praise the Lord for the gift of extra pleasant sleep in order to avoid a spawn of the devil.

 

 

Every year I like to make Christmas cards out of photo’s of our cats (everybody adores them and really looks forward to receiving them) and share them with friends and important overworked  and underappreciated folks in our community.

These include police officers, doctors, nurses, personal support workers, fire fighters, ambulance attendants and the garbage collectors.

As well, I make a point to give special ones to pastors and Christian councilors (I believe they are the most over worked and under appreciated of them all.

The week before Christmas and the week after I forgot to give the recycle man his Christmas card and gift.

Today when looking out the widow I saw his truck drive by. He drives to the end of the street, turns around and collects the other side. I quickly got his gifts and card and dashed out to give them to him. He was very happy and we enjoyed a great conversation.

I am grateful for the Lord having me look out the window at that precise time and reminding me about the Christmas gift and card.

loving to each other

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God provides) for providing me the opportunity to enjoy sleep rather than endure being in the presence of a wicked one.

Thank you my love for providing me with the opportunity to share some cheer with another to bring glory to Your Holy name.

I praise You in the name of He who refrained being the the presence of the wicked ones and who gladly enjoyed sharing with others Jesus Christ. Amen

Stay away from wicked men less they pollute your soul and take you to Hell with them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Giving unto others enriches not only them but you as well. Joseph a son of Jehovah

For That I am Eternally Grateful

NEVER ENDING LOVE AFFAIR

My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me. Psalm 63:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my younger days I dreamt of living in a log cabin on land purchased. Through circumstances out of my control, it was taken away from me. At the time there was a lot of anger and bitterness because of it. However, today there is deep gratitude because if life was spent in that log cabin Jehovah would not have been able to accomplish numerous amazing thing in me and through me. These experiences drew me ever closer to Him. For that I am eternally grateful.

At one time there was a nice size nest egg being built up for retirement. Through circumstances out of my control the nest egg was crushed and destroyed. At the time I was bitter and angry. Now there is deep gratitude because that needed to occur in order for my Beloved Heavenly Father to teach me to depend upon Him alone. For that I am eternally grateful.

I have learned to cling close to Him in a loving relationship like no other can begin to match. For that I am eternally grateful.

God takes away the world, that the heart may cleave more to Him in sincerity.” — Thomas Watson

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah THEOPHILUS (friend of God) for blessing me with purging me of all desire for worldly things all of which cannot compare to the most awesome friendship there could ever possibly be, that with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It is my most treasured gift that I am eternally grateful for. I thank you in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer Must Be

A PRAYING MAN        

 

Prayer is the communion of the regenerated soul with its Divine Parent.

Prayer is God’s own instituted means of obtaining blessings from Him, the Fountain of life.

Prayer must be sincere—we must really be desirous to obtain the blessings we ask.

Prayer must be holy—for if we “regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear us.”

Prayer must be pious—seeking to obtain blessings, not for our own gratification merely—but for God’s glory. Prayer is a relief and comfort to the troubled soul. Prayer must be importunate—for it is the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man, that prevails.

Prayer must be submissive—asking only for what it is God’s will to bestow. Prayer must be in love— love for our Heavenly Father and prayer for our fellow man, whether they be in Jehovahs Divine family or not. Prayer must be reverent—for our God is a consuming fire.

Prayer must be humble—for we are base, and sinful, and unworthy to lift up our eyes to heaven.

Prayer must be persevering—for men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Prayer must be particular—for generalities mean little or nothing.

Prayer must be universal—entering into everything, all the concerns of life, all the means of grace.

Prayer must be of all kinds—social, domestic, private, spontaneous but never ritualized for that is a stench and insult to our Heavenly Beloved. Prayer must be grateful—abounding in thanksgiving.

Prayer must be expectant—waiting and watching for answers.

Prayer must be believing—we must ask in faith. Prayer must be consistent with the Word of God —we may ask for everything God has promised.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the ultimate treasure, the Your loving gift of communion with You through prayer. It is a precious jewel that I carry close to me, not just in our morning and evening conversations but those which we share throughout the day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I deeply desire to walk with and talk with every day Jesus Christ, my best friend. 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
