To the Favor Of

CHRIST'S LOVE

 So then as through one trespass [Adam’s sin] there resulted condemnation for all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. Romans 5:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Justification is act of God’s boundless mercy in forgiving all the transgressions of the penitent believer, for the sake of atoning sacrifice of His beloved Son; and restoring the once guilty transgressor to the favour of God, and the hope of eternal life.

We are to be not just forever grateful to our Savior for willingly paying this excruciating horrid agonizing price but must be so every morning and evening.

Oh if only we could truly even begin to conceive the price that was paid with pain, blood and sweat for the punishment that has been pardoned of us by this loving act we would cry in adoration day and night in awestruck admiration and gratitude.

Do not take it lightly but in the utmost reverence.

It is Christs sweat, agony and blood that brought me into a Heavenly family. I shall give Him the biggest hug with tears streaming down my cheeks in love and adoration towards Him for this most amazing gift. . Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for saving me from eternal damnation through Your sacred blood. May my heart be ever appreciative of this most precious gift every moment of every day. I praise You in Your most holy 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

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 is in Your Midst  

GOD IS WITH US

This past week mom (I am a unpaid live in care giver for my mom. If I am not here she will be put into a seniors home) has been constantly taunting me that this is HER house and she does not need me. She can throw me out at her slightest whim.   I know my Lord desires me to remain here but it really gets me down.         

 These verses and quotes stuck out to me this morning while reading morning devotionals.              

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11    The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                    

 “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”  Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                         

   I don’t know what  tomorrow brings;  But I know who knows, and I know He holds my hand who holds tomorrow in His other hand. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                                  

   Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? Genesis 18:14  The Holy Bible Amplified Version             

   “What seems too difficult for us is a sure sign that it belongs to God.” — Marie DePree                                                                  

 “The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                             

About an hour afterwards as laying in bed my heart started tingling like a mild electric current was stimulating it.  Then there was a tingling in my mouth (no not like the current was running from my heart to my mouth but each was separate). I could not stop singing Glllllory, gloorrry , glorrry in excelsis.        

Next my right finger after the thumb tingled and was outstretched towards Heaven. This continued for an hour.                                                                     

 Wow, what an experience.                                                                      

   Do you think my Heavenly Love was trying to tell me something?  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with your reassurance that no matter what comes my way whether good or bad You are always right here with me. You are indeed all I need in life and You are my life. I exalt You in the name of my best friend who continuously walks beside me Jesus Christ. Amen May

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

It is Accomplished Through.

trust in God

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Faith is not something that is instantly instilled in us when we become Christians. It is only accomplished through a lot of failure. We all fall face down in our walk with Christ.

Satan is a master at instilling doubts which is the murderer of faith.

When we fail the Holy Spirit gently picks us up and teaches us again to have faith. Then when the tempter comes again we are stronger to resist his wicked wiles. It is accomplished through a lot of experience. When our faith is tested, we need to reflect back on Jehovahs deliverance, strength, guidance and resources to achieve complete and total victory.

That is why we need not only to be patient with baby Christians but to use our experiences to encourage them. It is accomplished through a personal experience with the Holy Trinity.

Finally, there of course, can be no victory without a loving obedient relationship with the supreme power of all faith Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It is only through their blessing that have triumphant and powerful faith.

“I am inwardly fashioned for faith, not for fear.  Fear is not my native land; faith is.  I am so made that worry and anxiety are sand in the machinery of life; faith is the oil….  A Johns Hopkins University doctor says, ‘We do not know why it is that worriers die sooner than non-worriers, but that is a fact.’  But I who am simple of mind think I know;  We are inwardly constructed…for faith and not for fear.  God made us that way.  To live by worry is to live against reality.”Dr. Stanley Jones

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees) for blessing me that You see everything in advance so know the best path for me to take in life even when it does not make sense to me at the time. I exalt You in the name of He whose light guides me unto Heavens gate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You will Keep in Perfect

 

You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character], Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation].Isaiah 26:3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There is perfection in life. It can only be found in one place and that is in the arms of Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There have been many times when I wanted to quit the assignment Jehovah had placed upon me to do for Him. It was only when, in refuge of prayer and communion with Him, that He instilled upon me to stay focused on Him and the strength that He blesses me with that the task was completed with gusto.

As well there is a completely enveloping of my entire being with peace.

Satan will always come to discourage us but when we stay steadfast both in our duty (which is an act of love) and Jehovahs character that we will succeed. It is when we take hold of Him and trust Him that we can do the impossible.

Jehovah will not give us work to do that He will not abundantly supply the tools and guidance to excel at the task until its completion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In reflection afterword we are filled with awe, love and respect for Him.

When we place our hearts in the hands of Jesus He signs an unbreakable treaty of peace in our hearts which no other can compare. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your cherished Divine peace, strength and focus to complete every task You lay out before me with great gusto. I exalt Thee in the name of He who completed Your assigned task all the way to the cross with strength, peace and focus Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Source of My Confidence.

                                                  

 For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust and the source of my confidence from my youth. Psalm 71:5 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Society is a prison of keeping up phony appearances. To fit in with the “in crowd” you have to act in a way that conforms to what they think is right or wrong. They decide what to wear, what music to watch, what movies to watch and what food to eat.

I do not care what others think of me, I care what Christ knows of me and is making of me. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who is “they’ you ask?

It is big business disguised as someone wise. I remember a time when these two guys would rate movies and many folks would decide which movies to watch based on their assessment. The strange thing is though, the movies they thought were super great must see movies were boring and duds to me. The movies they panned were the great movies to me. Strange how they were paid by the big movie companies.

I see movie stars and so called musicians commenting on world events like they are so wise yet they are idiots who know nothing. Many folks are just as big of idiots because they take their word for it rather than do research on it. Those of us who do do the research and call them out are called racists, bigots, hemophiliacs, to name just a few.

There are so many that wait in freezing weather and spend exorbitant amounts of money to get the latest mobile phone from a certain company just to feed their ego.

Those of us who are wise have confidence in who we are in Christ. When The Holy Spirit directs our steps it is because the Trinity loves us and desires only what is best for us not to empty our wallets or bend to worshiping them as idols. We have confidence in our Teacher and Guidance Councilor. We have confidence in who we are because we know Jehovah made us this way (that is not to say we are perfect or that we do not need the burning off of the dross- bad habits). We have confidence in what He is molding us into.

“The greatest prison people live in is the fear of what other people think.” David Icke Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for speaking to me in a gentle assurance that it does not matter what others think of me but what is important is what Your know of me and about me and what I am capable of becoming when I dedicate my life unto You. I exalt Thee in the name who He who never listened to anyone but You in whim He was Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Motto of Every Christian

 

Behold, for so shall the man be blessed and divinely favored Who fears the Lord [and worships Him with obedience]. Psalm 128:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The motto of every Christian is to be: Not me will but Thy will be done my Lord. Joseph a son of Jehovah Be careful.

Do not say this unless you are serious because Christ our King will call you out on it.

If Christ is our King then that means we are His free will servants. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He will take you where you do not want to go and request ( Jesus is respectful He never demands but always asks- sometimes nags) you to obey His voice. I say sometimes He nags because He would not leave me alone until I surrendered to His will. Every time I am glad I did.

“Obedience is the fruit of faith; patience, the bloom on the fruit.” — Rossetti

Through this we will learn to be patient because Jehovah works on His time schedule not ours. During this process He will also be cementing patience in our lives (which we all need). This takes numerous experiences and years to brand int our souls.

Composure will be another attribute He will instill into our being. When things are dive bombing south and every body else is running around like a chicken with their heads cut off we will be composed. This takes numerous experiences and years to brand into our souls.

Indeed, in reflection now, it is humorous to reminisce about how many times I was the chicken until becoming the cool head in hot situations.

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait eagerly for it with patience and composure. Romans 8:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing this humble servant with the privilege of serving such a magnificent King as You all the days pf my life. I sincerly thank you in Your awesome name. Amen

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