I Certainly Don’t Recommend

GODS DELIGHTS

The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Psalms 25:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you want to live an easy comfortable life do not become a Christian.

A Christians life can be expected to be one filled with sorrow, pain, hardship and loneliness.

You will be filled with sorrow at the ones who reject Christ (especially those in your maternal family) and by extension ostracize you. You will not be invited to family get togethers, weddings, funerals or anniversaries. It will cut deep.

You will suffer pain of never being invited to get togethers by those you work with. You will be treated like a freak and mocked.

You will suffer loneliness as Christ takes you away from comforts of this life into service for Him. You will feel as if you are the only person in the world because everyone around you rejects you mocks you and ostracizes you. It will cost you your family, your friends, your career, maybe your health, your financial security.

You will face hardship because of what you have to surrender unto Christ (in the beginning of your walk you will not be sure if He will supply your needs).

If this sounds like to heavy of a price to pay let us look at the rewards:

You can be sure that no matter the family and friends who reject you Christ will bring to you a Christian communion that will be closer than any maternal family member or worldly friend.

No matter recession or physical injury or anything that hampers you finances Christ will always make sure you have a comfortable place to live, clothes on your back and food in your belly.

In your hardship it will bring you ever closer to Christ which will expand your love, admiration, trust and friendship with Him, which is the best treasure of them all.

It is not: is it worth giving up everything to become a Christian but rather why in the world would I desire anything but Christ in my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  “I didn’t go to religion to make me ‘happy.’ I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to endure and prosper (yes prosper because the prosperity is in the enlargement of our eternal love affair) during my suffering because of my association with You. I exalt You in the name of He gladly enduring the most horrible suffering for me 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.

The Godly Are Bettered By

WE ARE PURIFIED

Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power]. And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance; and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:2-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the hard times we learn the most and mature the most as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. We do not become bitter and self pitying like those in the world. Rather, we rejoice in them afterwards because we can see Jehovahs strong, secure hand leading us through them.

It is in our sufferings that Jehovah reveals the most of His love and healing which draws us ever closer to Him which is the only way for that to occur. We do not pout and play the blame game like those in the world because we understand that it occurred for our betterment.

Each of these brings stronger confidence in our loving Heavenly Fathers providence in every part of our lives. Because we are His children we always have access to Him and He is never too busy for us but takes an active role in our lives.

For these blessings we should continually praise Him and rejoice over Him continually every day.

When we know that the angel of death shall come a calling (and I believe that Jehovah always alerts us that our time will soon be up, even though we do not know the hour or the day. This is because of what has been witnessed in the palliative care in hospitals and volunteering in seniors homes) Jehovah shall cause us to reflect back on our walk with Him and blesses us with assurance of the Heavenly home that is awaiting us.

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.” — William Jenkyn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for strengthening me, comforting me and encouraging me through lo the many trials, tribulations and sorrows that have come my way in my walk with You. I would never had made it without You gentle strong hand supporting me. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened the weak as He walked amongst us 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

God’s Primary Objective Is

                                        

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 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Christian life is a life of sacrifice. Sacrifice of :Not my will but Thy will be done my Love”. This means Jehovah first, others second and self last. This is hard as it involves a lot of hardships along the way.

It involves surrender of our will for His.

It means being obedient unto His direction in our lives whether we like it or not. It means going places we shutter to go to.

 It means doing with out.

It means doing a lot of things which are repulsive to the fleshly desire within us. It is not a one off thing but rather a daily one. One which is required of us every day for the rest of our lives no matter how young or old we are.

“God’s primary objective is not to make our lives easy but to make our lives matter.”Unknown

Prayer: Oh Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) this humble servant always desires to be obedient unto Your decree’s in my life.

When they are hard I humbly pray the Holy Spirit blesses me with the strength to step out into the unknown world You are guiding me in service to.

I thank you Holy Spirit for the strength, encouragement and resources to fulfill my Beloved Kings biddings.

I submissively request this and am in gratitude for this in the name of the King for whom it is such a supreme honour to serve 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

Enables Us to See

                                                          

Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said: “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever walked through a house in the dark at night? It is very common to trip on things or to bang into things. We can get seriously hurt.

So too it is with those walking in the worlds darkness. They are blind to the wiles of scam artists and cultists that enslave them body and soul. They fall for con artist with their jobs, which cheats them out of their money, their relationships, which gets them into abusive relationships, their finances which scams them out of their money (and yes this includes banks), their politicians which scam them into voting for them so they can get into power. Once in power they break every one of their promises with complete impunity.

Those who follow Christ’s lead are guided around these traps and avoid much hardship and crushing of the heart in their lives.

Just as we need a light to walk through the forest during the night so too do we require Christ’s light to guide us through life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“In darkness there is no choice. It is light that enables us to see the differences between things; and it is Christ who gives us light.” — Mrs. C. T. Whitemell Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with the light that has guided me way from so many disasters and towards success in the way You have Divinely prepared for my footsteps to travel. I praise You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Lamp Of.

                                       

The spirit (conscience) of man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching and examining all the innermost parts of his being. Proverbs 20:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no excuse.

The most popular excuse is: “I did not know.” and “It is not my fault.”.

That is a flat out lie.

The Holy Spirit comes to us all, believers and unbelievers alike and speaks to us as to what is right and what it wrong.

The difference is that the wise listen and obey the Holy Spirits advice and avoid a lot of hardship, trouble and sorrows.

The foolish arrogantly ignore it. Indeed, many times they drown Him out with loud music or any thing else to deafen their ears and minds unto Him. The irony is that the Holy Spirits advice for us is for our own good and we ignore it at our own peril as the fools discover the hard way. What is truly amazing is that the fools refuse to learn from the error of their ways and continue on their evil, wicked ways writing off their experiences as “just a coincidence”.

It is a wise man that listens to God, it is a foolish man that pays the price for ignoring Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with always speaking to me to guide my life in every aspect of my life. I cherish this Supreme advice. I extol Thee in the name of the best Adviser Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass 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.

On Whose Terms?

 “But if they do not hear and obey, they will die by the sword [of God’s destructive judgments] And they will die [in ignorance] without [true] knowledge. Job 36:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We don’t seem to want to worship a God who’s too big, too authoritative. We seem more comfortable with a deity who’s more manageable.” — Mark Finley

On whose terms do you worship Jehovah?

Most people want to dictate to Jehovah and refuse to listen to His words of guidance.

That is because He dictates that we life a live of sacrifice while we dictate that He serve us not us serve Him. We want to do things our way, which in many cases only leads to hardship and trouble.

Jehovah is better than a horoscope because He knows for certain what the future holds for us.

There is only two options. Option number one is what will happen when we go our own way, disaster.

Option number two: success when we follow His guidance. That does not mean living in a mansion, driving expensive cars while vacationing in the tropics for the winter.

It means a close loving obedient life of service to Him which is rewarded with the most loving relationship possible and a Heavenly home.

Prayer: Please Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless me to always be attentive, understanding and obedient unto Your Divine commands over every aspect of my life because I know You are the wisest of the wise and only desire what is best for me. I meekly request this in Your majestic name. Amen. May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
