That Furnace Experience.

tested in affliction

I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold. Zechariah 13:9 New Living Testament

We all suffer from having destructive habits and dispositions.

When we become a member of Jehovahs family, He will hand us over to the Divine blacksmith (The Holy Spirit). The blacksmith will put us in the furnace of affliction. Then when we are red hot, He pulls us out of the furnace, puts us on the anvil and pounds us. After that we are put in the cooling water. The blacksmith will then examine us to see if it is necessary to put us back in the furnace.

From my experience, each time He has removed a impurity ( like being vindictive) then He puts me back in to remove another impurity ( like being a wimp and allowing folks to abuse me). It may take years to make us pure children of Jehovah. It depends upon how many impure dispositions and habits we have and how much we resist Him. However, boy is it ever worth it. Life is so much better after these filth have been removed from our lives.

I praise Jehovah ever morning for blessing me with putting me in His Divine furnace. So will you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for blessing me with being able to keep me in the furnace just the right amount of time to be able to burn off the dross and mould me into the child You know I am cable of being. I praise You in the name of He who sent the Holy fire to His disciples on Pentecost 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.

No You Can Not.

  THE DEVIOUS REWARD.JPG

For certain people have crept in unnoticed [just as if they were sneaking in by a side door]. They are ungodly persons whose condemnation was predicted long ago, for they distort the grace of our God into decadence and immoral freedom [viewing it as an opportunity to do whatever they want], and deny and disown our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ .Jude 1:4  The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are some that teach that because we are saved by grace we can go out and do what ever we desire. “Hey Jesus loves me and by His grace my sins are forgiven so I can do whatever I desire and it’s okay because He forgives me.” That is perhaps one of satans biggest lies. We are in a Holy family and there are rules of conduct that must be followed.                                                      

For the [remarkable, undeserved] grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to reject ungodliness and worldly (immoral) desires, and to live sensible, upright, and godly lives [lives with a purpose that reflect spiritual maturity] in this present age. Titus 2:11-12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Yes it was by Christ’s blood on the cross that we gain salvation but that does not permit us to have carte blanch on sin. Once we are a member of His Divine family there are rules to be obeyed. Refuse to obey them at your own peril. Indeed, if you refuse to be obedient unto the Holy Spirits guidance you have forfeited your salvation because you have not accepted Christ as your true Savior.

Jesus loves me but if I love Him, I will be obedient to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for teaching me the truth and blessing me with the strength and fortitude to live a righteous life in Your eyes, not the worlds. I praise You in the name of the Word of Truth Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Use Both

complete deditacation

  “I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I use both as a light unto my closest friend. His name is Jesus.

I use both the good times and the bad ones as a light unto Christ.

The hard times shine the light of how He held my hand through the darkest clouds of sorrow and the difficultest of times. How He gently heals me of both big and small wounds. How He is strong yet gentle. How His love and strength was what got me through them. We are not to whine about them but rather to rejoice in them for it shows His providential care.

I use the good times to show His marvelous generosity to those He loves. How even the littlest of blessing shows His magnitude of love for me. Folks need to hear both. It makes Him real to them and some eager to join His Holy family.

“We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand.” C.H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me with ample opportunities to give testimony of Your amazing blessings and how the best ones were how You walked through my many trials and tribulations with me . Allow me to speak of the wonderful loving blessings You have generously given me in my life time. I ask this in the name of the most beautiful blessing You have shared with 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.

Until I Knew How to Love.

 

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

 I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. Romans 12:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a Christian means sacrificing self for Jehovah. We do this by being loving unto others. This is well pleasing to our Beloved.

We dedicate our bodies in service unto Christ by serving others in love. This is well pleasing to Him.

Each of these is an act of worship to Jehovah.

In return, He blesses us with close loving communion with Him.

As we serve others we realize how Jehovah takes care of us by us taking care of others. This increases our love and dedication towards Him.

It need not be travelling to other countries. In almost every country in the world there are ample volunteer opportunities in your own community. As you serve in a Christ like manner others will recognize Christ in you. This in turn will bring others towards being adopted into Jehovahs holy family. Do not expect big returns, from my experience it will only be about one in every ten that give their hearts unto Christ because of your dedicated service. The others will be ungrateful. Do not be disheartened. Even one is precious in the eyes of Jehovah.

“I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah MELEK KABOWD (King of Glory) for the privilege of serving You by being loving towards those around me. May this humble act of worship bring glory unto You and bring those walking in darkness into Your eternal Heavenly light. I worship You in the name of the light of the world with whom I love to worship Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

One of the Most Important Parts Of

WITH ALL YOUR HEART

The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him,
And He will let them know His covenant
and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning. Psalm 25:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the most important parts of this verse is those who fear Him. What this means in this context is those who respect Jehovah.

Think about it?

Would you waste your time trying to talk with someone who is rude and disrespectful towards you? And, quite probably very arrogant to boot.

Now, why would Jehovah waste His precious time speaking with a Mr. Know It All anyway. After all, according to them they know better than Jehovah to begin with so it is an exercise in futility to attempt to bless them with wise council.

As absurd as it sounds, I have met many that behave in just such a manner.

Of course there are times when we fall into this same category. Jehovah requests we do this but we believe we have a better way to accomplish the deed (which, of course, always leads to a pitiful disastrous failure.).

A covenant is a an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do or not do something specified.

Now why would Jehovah waste His valuable time attempting to make an agreement with a disagreeable soul?

Yes Jehovah has a deep desire for us to join His esteemed family and to bless us however, as in every family there are always rules.

When you look at the Bible two important words are if and but. If you obey My commands you will be blessed but, if you disobey them you will be cursed.

Much of the Bible has deep meaning that its wisdom is bypassed by the disobedient.

When we agree to obey and respect our Heavenly Fathers covenant with us He will reveal incredible deep hidden meanings in His word.

So for example when Jesus says , “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, before Abraham was born, I Am.” John 8:58 The Holy Bible Amplified Version He is talking about the voice Abraham heard in the bush when he was commissioned to free the Israelite’s from Egyptian slavery which means He has no beginning and no end. This put Him on equal footing as Jehovah. This blows apart any heresy that says that Jesus is not Divine.

As in any family there are secrets that are shared with no one else. In this case what is the use, no one will believe Him anyway?

When you show respect and obedience unto Jehovah, you will be amazed at just what secrets He will reveal unto you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: All praise by unto You Jesus Sabaoth (Lord of Hosts ) that Your are the only way to Heavens Gate. All others are inferior to You. By Your grace You have adopted me into a Holy family. All glory unto You my love. AMEN

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

Non-serving Does Not Belong to Us.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do Ephesians 2:10 New International Version

There is no such thing.

There is no such thing as a non-serving Christian.

Yes we have been saved by grace alone with Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.

That does not mean we can accept Christ and sit on our hands waiting for Him to take us to Heaven.

Once we become a member of Jehovah’s family He has His set chores for us to do. These are chores that are specially prepared just for us in our service to Christ.

Do not forget that if Jesus is our king then we are His servants.

What does a servant do?

They serve.

It need not be anything spectacular like missionary work. Whatever you do, when you do it for the glory of Christ, you are fulfilling your duties as His servant.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the numerous opportunities You so graciously provide me with to serve You both great and small every day. I give thanks in the name of Your wonderful child who served You so admirably when we walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Walk in Union with Him.

 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in [union with] Him [reflecting His character in the things you do and say—living lives that lead others away from sin]. Colossians 2:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How are we supposed to walk in union with Christ?

The first step is to pray for revelation with a sincere heart so we may be blessed with Holy communion with Him.

The second step is to read our Bible, read Christian literature and listen to Christian teachers as they expound upon Christs character and the Holy Spirits transformation of us into union with His Divine character.

This is a life time exercise that must become second nature to us in every aspect of our daily lives.

The more obedient we are to the Holy Spirits guidance the more He resides within us.

“True religion is a union of God with the soul, a real participation of the divine nature, the very image of God drawn upon the soul, or in the apostle’s phrase, it is Christ formed in us.” Henry Scougal

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with the most incredible friendship possible. I cherish every moment we spend together. I praise You in the name of my best friend with whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

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