It is a test of the Heart

tested in affliction

 I know also, my God, that You test the heart and delight in uprightness and integrity. 1 Chronicles 29:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times a trial is a test.

It is a test of our faith in the providence of our Heavenly Beloved. A test to see if we trust Him in His word, promise , unto us. It is a test of our maturity, not for Jehovahs sake but for ours. It reveals where we need to work more, either by ourselves, or in harmony with the Holy Spirit or to work at completely surrendering unto Jehovah- which is an act of faith.

Many times I have cried out to my Beloved and asked Him why this was happening to me. Why are you refusing to Help me? It was only later that He revealed to me that it was a test.

Sometimes I passed and was ready for Him to mature me in the next step to becoming a mature child of His.

Sometimes I failed and would have to relearn the lessons He was teaching me. He was not angry with me but encouraging me and patient with me.

So, when you are experiencing a trial, tribulation or deep agony have faith that there is a Divine purpose for it and you will come through it with His amazing providence.

As well you will become every closer unto Him through this process.

“For God to explain a trial would be to destroy its purpose, calling forth simple faith and implicit obedience.” — Alfred Edersheim

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees who see my life from beginning until my entrance into Heavens gate. Thank you that through the tests You have allowed to come my way, You have blessed me with coming ever closer in our loving relationship. I praise You in the name of He with whom I desire to walk close with in our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It is Your Choice.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

Wisdom shouts in the street,
She raises her voice in the markets;
She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather];
At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:
How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning? How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing, How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?
If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
Because I called and you refused [to answer],
I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer];
And you treated all my counsel as nothing
And would not accept my reprimand, I also will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when your dread 
and panic come,
When your dread 
and panic come like a storm, And your disaster comes like a whirlwind, When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].
Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer;
They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me, Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the 
Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel,
And they spurned all my rebuke.
Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.
For the turning away of the naive will kill them, And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them.
But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.” Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Listen to and obey Jehovah now or receive His terrible rewards later. It is your choice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I humbly beseech You Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless me to always be in harmony with Your word. To do so is rewarded with magnificent closeness with You and prevents heaps of anguish, trouble and sorrow in my life. I praise You in the name of He who I love to walk with and talk with every day, my wise big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

 

Only Increases in Value. Happy [blessed, considered fortunate, to be admired] is the man who finds [skillful and godly] wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding 
and insight [learning from God’s word and life’s experiences],
For wisdom’s profit is better than the profit of silver, And her gain is better than fine gold.
   Proverbs 3:13-14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version I have met many fools with pockets full of money. I have many so called guinuses in the stock moarket. I have met many who consider themselves experts at life. Interestingly enough they all fail in their lives. That is because they arrogantly depend upon themsleves instead of Jehovah for guidence. This transends every generation not just the young crowd. I have met many that would be considered paupers in the worlds standards but are some of the wisest folks I have ever met. I eagerly anticipated sitting at their feet and drinking in their incredible wisdom. One thing they all had in common was that they never took credit for themselves but alawys gave the glory where it belongs, unto Jehovah. Wisdoms value never diminishes but only increases in value when it comes from Jehovahs treasure house of knowledge. Joseph a son of Jehovah Prayer: Glory glory excelsis unto You my Beloved Heavenly Teacher for blessing me with Divine wisdom in every perpective of my life. I esteem this treasure above all other and thank You for this blessing in the name of the most wonderful councillor Jesus Christ. Amen May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Tutorship from Above

VOICE OF GOD

But the wisdom from above is first pure [morally and spiritually undefiled], then peace-loving [courteous, considerate], gentle, reasonable [and willing to listen], full of compassion and good fruits. It is unwavering, without [self-righteous] hypocrisy [and self-serving guile]. James 3:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We Christians are all teachers to the dark world.

We do not have to attend some university to become Christs teachers. We have to sit at the masters feet and listen to Him.

First He must teach us to be moral because without this we are no different than those stumbling to Hell in the darkness.

Then we must learn to be spiritually in harmony with our Beloved wise Teachers.

After that we must learn to be courteous (do not shove Christ down anyone’s throat. If they reject Him we must accept that.)

We need to consider where they are in life without putting ourselves above them (one way some do this is by pitying others while feeling superior to them ).

We must be patient and gentle with them (while being firm when necessary, do not allow anyone to walk all over you. Jesus never did so why should you?).

It is necessary to be reasonable with others while being uncompromising in Christs teachings.

Sometimes they are not mature enough to understand what we are trying to teach them. Sometimes there is a cultural difference.

We must be compassionate with others because we all have our battle scars and battles we are enduring at the present. That does not mean we are to be a crutch for them but rather be someone they can pour out their hurt and anger to as we share the healing power of Christ with them.

This is not a week or month long endevour but one that will mean years of commitment towards them. It takes years for some fruit to be produced while at other time it only can take maybe a month.

I have heard many so called intellectually superiors discuss matters that leaves me looking at them and wondering what planet they are from. They are usually very arrogant and love to pump their egos up. They are some of the most pitiful creature ever encountered.

To receive Heavens tutorship from above you have to keep both feet planted firmly on the rock of Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Praise You Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for being such a patient Teacher with this difficult student. Please bless me to reciprocate with those eager to learn about You as I reveal You to them.

Thank you for the never ending tutorship as You mold me to emulate the greatest teacher to ever bless this world, Your supreme astute Teacher Jesus Christ. I exalt The in the name of the greatest Teacher 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 Who Has a Head of Wax

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.

The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.

Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).

Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me).  Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).

Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).

Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Those who have a head of wax must not walk out in the sun (know your weaknesses) Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.

Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.

Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.

I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses 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

Following After Their

                 

First of all, know [without any doubt] that mockers will come in the last days with their mocking, following after their own human desires. 2 Peter 3:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is becoming more and more prevalent every day (especially in the west) that folks will worship anything and anyone rather than Christ. We see it with sports teams, musicians, movie stars. We see it with so called new age. We see it with the homosexual community.

At the same time we see it becoming more and more severe how these same creatures viciously mock true Christians. We see how they vilify us with every opportunity.

Instead of feeling pressured or picked on consider it pure joy when anyone mocks you for being a Christian. That is a badge of honour. It also means time is running short and soon we will be with our Beloved in Heaven.

When the wicked mock and persecute the righteous you know you must walking the right path. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Blessed [comforted by inner peace and God’s love] are those who are persecuted for doing that which is morally right, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever]. Matthew 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your all powerful strength to endure hardships for being a loved child of Your. I praise You in the name of He who was persecuted all the way to the cross for walking in harmony with You 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

Yes They Are.

I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church in Cenchreae. Romans 16:1 New International Version.

LEADERSHIP

The word “deacon” is derived from the Greek word diakonos (διάκονος), which is a standard ancient Greek word meaning “servant”, “waiting-man”, “minister” or “messenger”. Deacon From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There is a big debate in many churches as to whether women should be permitted the privilege of being ministers or serving in other departments in a church.

Paul describes Phoebe as a deacon in an exulting manner so does he does not condemn her but encourages others to accept her (not bad for someone who many accuse as being a male chauvinist huh?).

I attended a church in China that had a woman preacher, a woman choir master and a women prayer leader. They were greatly loved and respected by the congregation, indeed, their churches were always full. Fuller than the Western that had men and had the modern worship services afterwards. They endured much more scorn from family and friends in their home towns and had to move far from there. Their congregation was truly their family.

Does your pastor feel as if you treat him as a member of your family?

Do you feel as if he treats you as a member of his family?

Is that bond there a strong as titanium or as weak as a wet noodle between you and your pastor?

I felt a deep bond of respect and admiration between those Chinese pastors and me.

It is not the sex that makes a good preacher; it is a heart after God, one that is obedient to His calling.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) bless me with a wise, gracious and loving heart to accept and support all those You have destined for service ilregardlus of their sex, colour, nationality or any other outward appearance. I meekly request this in the name of He who accepted all the cast offs of the society he lived in Jesus Christ. Amen.

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