He Has Told You.

 He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion), And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]? Micah 6:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no excuse.

An excuse is a skin of a reason wrapped up in a lie. A.W. Tozer

Jehovah has told you and you are to obey.

We are to be just. That means there is no discrimination towards those of a different colour, nationality, sex or income than what we have. There is the original equality law for you. We are to be loving.

That means not just helping other but correcting them when they are wrong ( which the satanic liberally wrong).

That does not mean a feel good event like donating to the food bank at Christmas but making a commitment to help those in poverty get out of it.

It means we are to have compassion on the disadvantaged like seniors and the disabled. We are to help them with our fellowship and encouragement.

That means we are not to be annoying, self centered twits that believes the whole world revolves around us but are to be respectful and courteous to both Jehovah and to those around us.

Now we all need His guidance and strength to accomplish this every day. That is why we need to ask for and obey the Holy Spirits wisdom which He freely and generously gives to all who asks with humbleness and sincerity.

Prayer: Please Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless this humble servant of Your with an obedient heart in my service unto You my cherished King. I sincerely request this in You magnanimous name. Amen.

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

With Confidence and Without Fear.

 

Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment]. Hebrews 4:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We approach Jehovahs throne with confidence not arrogance because we believe it is by Christs blood that we have the gift of grace which is forgiveness, that our filth is washed clean when we repent.

We also need to acknowledge our weaknesses and humbly, sincerely request The Holy Spirits assistance and strength to conquer them.

Jehovah will allow us to wrestle with our weaknesses until the point where they are going to defeat us and then come in like the cavalry. This is to teach us that we are too weak and in need of His Divine assistance. This teaches us to not only depend upon Him but to be grateful and respectful unto Him.

The end result is a deep love and admiration towards Him. Knowing our weaknesses we need to be aware of them and our circumstances.

We need to be aware of the danger of entering into a forbidden area because it will place us in the temptation zone which will overpower our weaknesses.

We need to discipline ourselves to avoid these places like the plague.

Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah.

So a alcoholic, when they become dry, need to be aware of certain streets that they cannot walk down because there is a liquor store there or a bar which will draw them into temptation.

Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the body is weak. Matthew 26:41 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with Your Divine strength and wisdom to be able to conquer my weaknesses so as to not shame You the One I love the most. I humbly ask this in the name of He whose strength defeated satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Cannot be Perfected Without Adversity.

 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference is that those of us in Jehovahs family is there to comfort us, encourage us, heal us and guide us through them.

Those of the world depend upon their own faulty understanding, power and logic and or that of so called professionals to no avail. They suffer far greater.

The closer we get to Christ, the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times when we are enduring hard times and we call out to Jehovah it seems as if there is no answer. Do not be discouraged. He loves you and will not ever desert you.

When you reflect back on it you will see Jehovah burning off the dross (the bad dispositions in you) and teaching you.

This fills me with awe and amazing joy, love and respect that I have such an amazing God, it will you as well.

Of course there is going to be a battle between you and satan.

He sees you getting close to Christ and he is infuriated. He will show no mercy in his attacks to destroy this incredible loving relationship.

Sometimes Jehovah will allow you to fight your own battles and each time you do your warrior skills against this filth will be enlarged. You will sing for joy unto Jehovah in your victory. Think of Job at the end of his suffering. This will bring you closer to our Warrior King.

Other times the battle is too strong for you and the Holy Spirit will come  to rescue  you. Again your relationship with Christ will be closer than before.

“A gem cannot be polished without friction; the child of God cannot be perfected without adversity.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for using adversity to polish off the dross in my life so that I am a beautiful jewel in Your eyes and in Your heart. I extol Thee in the name of the most precious jewel of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Blesses Us by Sending

 “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 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This truth has taken me years to believe ( not learn, I learned it but did not truly believe it).

It is when we are in the furnace of affliction and upon our knees crying out unto Jehovah in agony that He blesses us with the calming and strengthening presence of the Holy Spirit to encourage us on.

It is in the desert when our souls are parched dry and everyone has deserted us that we call out in desperation unto our Beloved for help and He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to quench our parched souls with the life giving Divine Holy waters that refreshes our spirits and allows us to not only continue on but to flourish in this inhospitable place.

It is in the raging storms when we believe we are sinking in the crashing waves that we desperately call out unto our Abba in Heaven to rescue us that He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to take our hand ever so gently but firmly and will not let go that we walk on the waters through the tumultuous thundering waves with Him.

It is in the firestorms when flames of fire are constantly piercing our hearts that we call out unto our Heavenly Father to protect us that He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to heal our wounds and in times carry us through when we no longer have the strength to battle the intense flames.

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for always being present through the numerous trials, tribulations and sorrows that is a part of every life. Thank you for the Divine strength You bless me with. I praise you in the name of He who walked through so many difficulties with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Grace is When

 Growing in grace they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age. Psalm 92:14 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Grace is not something we are born with. When someone does us wrong the natural inclination is to seek revenge.

It is only when we surrender all to Christ that He will send the Holy Spirit to burn that wicked trait out of you to be replaced by a heart of grace.

Now just as when you plant seeds today you do not harvest them tomorrow neither are you blessed with unlimited grace from the beginning. It take time to mature just like flowers.

For me, when someone crossed me I was very vengeful and cruel in getting my pound of flesh. It took an experience where the Lord told me to stand there and take the abuse without retribution. That was hard but through the power of the Holy Spirit successful.

It has taken me another eleven years and I am still working on it.

The Holy Spirit has brought me a long way since then and there is still a ways to go.

Oh, and by the way, do not think the wicked ones escaped punishment. Jehovah brought me to a place and told me to stand and watch.

I witnessed His justice and it was far more severe than anything I could have done.

There was no joy in my heart at seeing His justice handed out but fear. Fear, because, of what would happen to me if I angered the Lord.

Now sometimes we have to understand the others situation.

So perhaps a woman was abused by her dad and or brothers and she is cold towards you at school or work. You do not know why unless you are patient, gentle and loving with her or find a Christian woman to talk with her. Maybe it is a cultural thing or maybe there is problems in the others life. We need to be patient and with prayer ask Jehovah to open our eyes to the others situation and the proper course to take.

“Grace is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.” Unknown

Prayer: Please my Beloved Heavenly father Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always emulate You and expand a loving heart in my life so as to bring the lost unto You and so as to please You. I sincerely request this in the name of the most loving best friend who has shown me His love all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Have Met Many Pretenders

 

You hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders), rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said, ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far away from Me. Matthew 15:7 -8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many pretenders in church. They are the biggest hypocrites ever met. They are constantly criticizing others for the smallest of things while they commit far bigger sins. They dress like Dapper Dans. They do more to drive folks away from Christ than towards them.

Sadly from my experience most are elders in the congregation. Indeed they are the primary reason folks do not attend church ( I know it is for me).

I have also seen them in their final years and they are paying for their abhorrent behaviour and very sad and die alone.

We need the Holy Spirit to come along side of us and correct this behavior in its infancy before it takes root in our disposition. None of us are immune to it.

“God is in the hypocrite’s mouth, but the world is in his heart.” Gurnall

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees open my eyes to the wolves that prance around in sheeps clothing and when I begin to become like one of them sternly correct me so as to never stray from Thy holy flock. I meekly request this in the name of He who is never a pretender Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

One of the Amazing Things.

 Only pay attention and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life. Make them known to your children and your grandchildren [impressing these things on their mind and penetrating their heart with these truths]. Deuteronomy 4:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the amazing things in researching my ancestry is how much of myself I see in my distant relatives like a generational repetition. As well I can see the ugly side of my ancestors in my family. It is important to understand that yes many of our positive and negative traits have been passed on by our ancestors.

All hope is lost for our fathers addictions shall be passed on to me, you say.

We need to understand the past but not to allow it to dictate our present or future. Joseph a son of Jehovah

No, not at all.

Because, when we accept Christ as our Savior, He will send the Holy Spirit to remould you into a beautiful child of Jehovah. It is a slow process that takes decades but is well worth it because in the course of your remoulding you will be blessed with a deep love, admiration, respect and awe of the Holy Spirits power, the Power of Christ and of course the power of Jehovah. An added benefit is that your transformation will be an encouraging testimony to others who have addictions and bad dispositions.

“Though no one can go back and make a new beginning – anyone can start from now and make a brand new end.” Carl Brand

It is important to share with your children and grandchildren the big and small of your walk with Jehovah to make Him real to them. It is good if you can insert Bible verses into the conversation because that teaches the younger generation the the Bible is the word of God and our guidebook to life.

Instead of wasting time in malls or with computers or with the idiot box (TV) take time to find a safe quiet place to go for a walk with your children and grandchildren in nature (because that is Gods Cathedral) and share with them your walk. Be patient with them and answer their questions honestly and with grace.

It will not bring everyone to Christ but even one is a precious treasure unto Him.

We need to share with the younger generation our walk with Christ so they can see Him for being real and not a fairy tale such as the world deceitfully professes. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (God is my friend) bless me with opportunities to share You with others as You shared Yourself with others so as to bring them into Your Holy family since I have no family to share the amazing bountiful blessings You have bestowed upon me during our walk together lo these many many years. I humbly request this in You my big brothers name. Amen.

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