A Continuous War.

 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 Holy Bible New Living Translation

As Christians we are in a continuous war.

There is of course, war with those that are liberal minded (if it feels good do it, there is no absolute right or wrong, there is no God).

There is the constant was against demons who relish nothing more than destroying our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

But, the most brutal of all wars is raged in our hearts and minds.

Thoughts of lust, greed, anger, fear and worry are our ever present foes.

That is why it is so important to be in continuous prayer.

When these thoughts and emotions enter our minds and hearts we are to immediately call out to Jehovah to send the Holy Spirit to sweep these thoughts from us like you sweep dirt out of a house.

Then, to fill our house with the sweet fragrance of love, joy and gratitude to our loving Father Jehovah our precious Savior Jesus Christ and our strong Deliverer the Holy Spirit.

“Who sits in solitude and is quiet has escaped from three wars: hearing, speaking, seeing; yet against one thing shall he continually battle: that is, his own heart.”  St. Antony

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with the weapons required on a daily basis for the continual battle in my mind and heart. Thank you that through Your strength and wisdom victory is guaranteed. Thank you that when I lose a battle and call out to You, You sooth my soul while blessing me with healing balm for my heart. You are such a wonderful Warrior King. I praise You in Your majestic 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

What are You Willing to Pay?

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Proverbs 4:7, New International Version

What are you willing to pay for a supreme loving relationship?

God says that we are to seek the kingdom of God first and He will add unto you (which means He will bless you).

So my question is: What are you willing to pay for the privilege of having the preeminent privilege of a true love relationship with God?

Are you willing to walk away from you job?

Are you willing to walk way from your family (Now I don’t believe that means to use this as an excuse for a divorce. That’s not possible as God hates divorce.) But, are you willing to walk away from your parents and siblings?

Are you willing to walk away from your friends?

You see the cost is guaranteed to be high. So will the reward be.

Are you willing to sacrifice your desires for the desires of Christ?

Above all the grace and gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self. Francis of Assisi

Prayer: I know oh Jehovah Kanna (The Lord is Jealous) – Ex 34:14 that You are a jealous God that desires to have no one above You because that makes them or it an idol which takes away from loving You. Thank You for teaching me this and for empowering me to cast aside anything and everything that attempts to upsurge You. I thank You in the name of He who surrendered His own life to do Your will Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Have you been there yet?

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

I want to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferingPhilippians 3:10  The Holy Bible, The New Transaltion Version

Have you been there yet?

You know, have you walked through the valley of Hell. A place of fire and torment.

I have. It was during a toxic relationship. The person was terribly abusive, mean spirited,selfish and cruel. I stayed believing I could help this person. Of course they must want to resolve their issues and take action themselves. This person did not want to change their behavior. Finally I walked away.

Then, came another time of hell, the time of recovering from the abuse. I kept on calling out to God, but He was silent.

Thankfully God did direct me to the resources needed to recover. It took a year.

Through that time I developed a very deep and personal relationship with God. There was no other way for this relationship to exist except my going through the hell first to get rid of the toxic relationship that put a chasm between us.

In time the wounds were healed and my spirit resurrected into the family of Christ.

If you are going through the fire right now perhaps it in necessary to burn off bad habits or beliefs.

My trying to serve this abusive person prevented me from serving God. So, He just stepped back and allowed the abusive person to do their worst (a boy did they do a job on me) to burn off my feeling of obligation to them. Once the relationship ended, then came the healing.

Through the healing came a deep love for and respect for God.

So too is it possible for you.

If you are going through that hell, whether it be an addiction or toxic relationship or health or financial problems perhaps it is because you need to have something burned off that restricts you from your relationship with God.

Yes definitely get help.

I am so happy I did.

They helped open my eyes to a lot of things that has helped me ever since. At the completion of this time your spirit will be resurrected into a close relationship with God.

Believe me it hurts God too to have to step back and watch you go through this, but it is necessary.

Even though it hurts our Beloved to watch, He does step back and allow us to go through Hell to get us into Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) Judges 6:12 for blessing me with walking through my time of torment and agony. Thank you for healing me when You finally had enough and guided me away from the tormentor. I would never had made it without You. With my deepest gratitude I thank you in the name of the greatest Healer of all, 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Wish They Would Stop It.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself Matthew 22:37-39 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I wish these liars would stop telling folks Jehovah loves us unconditionally. That is like saying that because He loves us we can go out and do what ever we desire and there is no repercussions because He loves us. That is a satanic lie.

As in any relationship there are conditions.

Jehovahs conditions are that you love Him above all else, that you love your fellow man and woman above yourself.

Yes, there are conditions to belonging to Jehovahs family just as there is for every other family. The difference is that His are to be obeyed with no excuses. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) bless me to always be obedient unto the rules for membership in Your Holy Family.I humbly request this in the name of my most loving big brother 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

Your Communication Will Be

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 The end and culmination of all things is near. Therefore, be sound-minded and self-controlled for the purpose of prayer [staying balanced and focused on the things of God so that your communication will be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Him.]1 Peter 4:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version           

How can you be sound minded if you are watching unsound garbage which passes for entertainment on TV or in the movies                                                        

How can you be sound minded with the rubbish they call music screaming in your ears with its enticing you to live a life that is filthy in Jehovahs eyes?

Garbage in , garbage out. If you listen to this garbage it will pollute your mind to emulate this rubbish. 

Is it not better to listen to music that praises our Beloved Heavenly Father.

How can you be self controlled if you have no control over your mind? When you watch this trash that passes for entertainment on TV and in the movies, it will draw you into that lifestyle like a alluring siren tried to lure that ship to destruction in a Greek mythology tale of Jason and the Argonauts .

Is it not better to mediate on the Bible and a relationship with Jehovah? Why not watch programs that are Christian like on Dove Channel or purflix.

How can your mind be focused on Jehovah while being clouded with the filth of the world?

Personally, many times I find satan filling my mind with drawing it away from talking with Jehovah with stupid things like thinking about what to have for a meal or what the weather is. He will do anything to interfere with our loving conversation with our cherished Heavenly Father. This is why we need to practice concentrating and being close with Jehovah so when satan tries this we just tell him to shove off. Do not think he will leave, he will be a pest all through out your prayer time. This is good because it shows you are getting close with Jehovah which is what satan hates the most.

The only way for our communication to be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Jehovah is if we are using the language in which He speaks. If He does not speak the devils language why do you think He would listen to yours? Joseph a son of Jehovah

 Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shama (God who hears) bless me to always speak Your language not just to You but to those I come in contact with every day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who speaks the most eloquently of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Upon All Who Love Our

goodness-is

 May God’s grace be eternally upon all who love our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 6:24 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Grace is defined as love and mercy.

Yes it is an exclusive offer. It is only available to members.

Who are those members?

Those members are those who are Christs servants.

Why would Jehovah bless someone with love that hates both Him and His children?

Why would Jehovah show mercy to those who brutalize, murder and abuse His children?

No, they are not free to indulge in this gift. Their gift is Jehovahs terrible justice.

Now, just as Jehovah blesses us with mercy we are to be merciful to those who are repentant. We need Jehovahs guidance to me merciful to those He deems worthy of mercy.

Just as Jehovah showers us with love we are to emulate Him and shower those with love that He guides us to be loving with. Our knowledge and intuition is limited and faulty. That is why we require His guidance to those He deems worthy.

“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.” Jackie Windspear

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for revealing to me the mystery of how to live a graceful life. It is a wonderful life to live. I exalt You in the name of the most graceful of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Don’t Waste Your Breath

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice. Proverbs 23:9 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever tried talking with fools?

They are stubborn, stupid and arrogant.

They are stubborn. You can take them through it bit by bit and they agree with you all along the way. Then you ask them if they agree with what you are saying at the end of the conversation and they laugh at you like you are a fool and they are so much smarter than you. When they refuse to listen and go their own way which ends in disaster it is everybody’s fault but their own.

They are stupid. They know from experience that what they are doing is going to end in disaster but stupidly believe the outcome this time will end differently, which it does not. It ends in disaster. When the inevitable disaster occurs again they blame everybody but themselves. They are arrogant. They believe they are right and everybody that disagrees with them is wrong. They will not allow the facts to get in the way.

So many times I see this in seniors and stand there and shake my head and wonder how they have managed to live this long. When you sit down and talk with them they will admit that most of their problems and disasters in their lives have been because they are stubborn. I hear some uneducated idiots tell me that they are that way because they are old and set in their ways. In reality they have been like that all their lives. I try to talk with them (fools) but if they refuse to listen I just walk away, not wanting to see the disastrous results.

Just ask any policeman or woman how many disasters they have encountered because of stupidity and stubbornness. Indeed there was a recent incident where a road was blocked of because of flooding. A woman refused to obey and went around the sign. Her car was swept into the river and she lost her son because of her arrogance and stupidity. 

The same goes through for any nurse in Emergency Ward.

I speak, you do not listen, why should I speak any more? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God my teacher) bless me to always listen and obey Your wise voice. I know that doing so will avoid a lot of trouble, agony and hardship. I ask this in the name of He who was always obedient unto Your voice 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.

I Wanna Know so I can Do.

follow your ways

 Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

 I wanna know so I can do as my Heavenly King desires. Because I love Jesus so much I have a deep desire to know what He wishes for me to do.

We need to daily commit to seeking out the best instruction for our lives.

And, of course, the best instruction manual is The Holy Bible.

There are other resources such as on line daily devotionals like Our Daily Bread. For those who prefer to listen rather than read a fantastic resource is https://www.sermonaudio.com/main.asp Both are great.

When we dedicate ourselves to asking for instructions for the coming day with commitment to obeying the instructions given, we will find that Jehovah guides us along on our day even though many times it does not feel as if He is there.

Then, there is the big picture in which Jehovah moulds our personality which takes decades. Being a little slow at catching on at times (we all are) it means there are occasions when the information must be digested a little at a time.

As well, there is a slow process for us to serve Jesus’ big purpose.

This may take years and involve many baby steps along the way.

I love to learn but sometimes it is difficult to put that knowledge into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for the distinction of being one of Your disciples. I love to sit and listen and learn from the Holy Spirit whom You have sent to instruct me in the proper manner in which to be a revered servant of Yours. I applaud You for this favour in Your holy name. Amen

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

More Loudly Than Your Lips.

chief-duty

 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus Colossians 3:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is an old saying: walk the walk before you talk the talk. I whole heartedly believe in this.

We are to walk like Christ did so as to shine His light into a dark world. Let our light be like a like that attracts the bugs at night to a street light. The difference is that our light guides others to Christ and then to Heaven.

It was the method I unknowingly used when a teacher (I say unknowingly because I just behaved as a Christian naturally and that stood out from the other teachers. When my children asked why I was different then I shared Jesus with them. Most were not interested but some were. Even if I bring one to Christ that is a great harvest to Him) with success every semester.

At the same time before we follow anyone claiming to be from Christ it is best to step back and watch their behavior. If it does not jive with Christ run away for they are of the deceiver and his name is satan.

May your life preach more loudly than your lips. Ellery Channing

Prayer: Please Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) bless me with Your spiritual nourishment to enable me to live a life that nourishes those around me with Your Divine love. Please use this action to encourage others to come into Your Holy family. I meekly request this in the name of He who led twelve that set the world on fire Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He is Here.

LOOK FOR ME

 For the Lord your God is living among you.  He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”Zephaniah 3:17 Holy Bible, New Living Version 

Some may ask: Where is Jesus in my life?

He is here. Right here with you now.

The closest you can get to Him of course is in prayer, which is enjoying a conversation with your closest best friend and confidant, Jesus. Jehovah is most delighted in you when you are walking according to the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

When you are afraid or worried Jehovah is there when you call upon Him to fill you with supernatural peace, supernatural love and supernatural assurance the King of the universe cares about you, His child which He adores.

When we walk in accordance with Jehovahs will He sings joyful songs which fills the universe.

Jehovah is the best Father there is. His love for us is Divine and Heavenly. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with the honour of Your holy of holiest presence in my life every day. I love it when you sing to me through the song of the wind as it dances through the leaves. I love it when you sing good morning to me with the birds every morning. I love it when you sing to me with the strong thunder. I love all the ways You sing such beautiful songs of love and joy to me. It makes my heart dance with Heavenly joy. I praise You in the name of He whose voice is the sweetest song I have ever heard Jesus Christ. Amen

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