Study this Book of Instruction

 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. Joshua 1:8 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is imperative that we feast upon Jehovahs guidebook of life in order to be obedient unto His instruction for our lives.

It guides us to succeed in relationships whether they be personal or corporate.

It guides us in how to invest our time and resources properly.

It guides us in our relationship with our Heavenly Love.

It guides us in the proper diet, exercise and manner of rest.

And, of course we require the Holy Spirit to interpret it for us because we are limited by our mental capacities to understand the Spiritual wealth that is hidden from the world that lies with in its pages. We will never learn of all the wisdom contained in its pages no matter how long we study it.

“‘Thinking Christianity’ is thinking by Christians about anything and everything in a consistently Christian way — in a manner that is shaped, directed, and restrained by the truth of God’s Word and God’s Spirit.” — Os Guinness

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for instructing me in the proper conduct that pleases You. As, well, it makes my life so full of integrity, meaning and purpose. I exalt You in the name of He whose words are the true word of truth 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

To You, O Lord

GODS DELIGHTS

 

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in You I [have unwavering] trust [and I rely on You with steadfast confidence],
Do not let me be ashamed
or my hope in You be disappointed;
Do not let my enemies triumph over me.
Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed;
Those who turn away from what is right
and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed). Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long.
Remember, O Lord, Your [tender] compassion and Your loving kindnesses, For they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your loving kindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.
All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
For Your name’s sake, O Lord, Pardon my wickedness and my guilt, for they are great. Who is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with submissive wonder]? He will teach him [through His word] in the way he should choose. His soul will dwell in prosperity and goodness, And his descendants will inherit the land.
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.
My eyes are continually toward the Lord, For He will bring my feet out of the net. Turn to me [Lord] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins.
Look upon my enemies, for they are many; They hate me with cruel and violent hatred. Guard my soul and rescue me; Do not let me be ashamed or disappointed, For I have taken refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness protect me, For I wait [expectantly] for You. Psalm 25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This pretty much describes my attitude and behaviour towards my all knowing, all delivering, all encouraging, all loving all forgiving incredible Heavenly Father, Supreme King and Wise Teacher.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being so loving towards me in that You always supply me with the right amount of what I need, when I need it. You are so amazing. I exalt You in the great name of He who always supplied His disciples 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.

All scripture is for instruction.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 All Scripture is God breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]. 2 Timothy 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

A desire to know merely to know, is curiosity.

But a desire to know in order to do, is godliness.

I have met many that can quote any Bible verse for any situation. When asked if they put it into application in their lives they just give me a dumb look and walk away.

I have met a few of the wise that can quote a Bible verse for any situation and explain what it means and how the Holy Spirit helped them to put it into application in their lives. Those are the ones I will listen to and respect.

“To know God is to know that our obedience is due to Him.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wisdom and fortitude to obey what has been taught to me by Your wise teacher The Holy Spirit. Doing so blesses me with being a good and faithful servant. I edify You in the name of Your most obedient son 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.

Eternity Offers Only Two.

kigndom of heaven

I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse Deuteronomy 30:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is so confusing.

That is what I used to say about life. There are so many options and so many voices. Which one do I listen to? This one says this and that one says that (I find that particularly true in health care). It makes the head spin.

After accepting Christ as my Savior He slowly showed me that to do so also makes Him my King and me His free will servant. Many of the things He instructed me to do were difficult. But that was to teach me to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. Many things seemed crazy, that was to teach me to trust Him implicitly in my life. Through the course of these decades long lessons He was slowly teaching me the most important lesson of all though: That is to continuously grow deeper in a loving relationship with Him. The ultimate goal will be to share eternity with the one I love and worship the most.

In the world there is so much confusion because they listen to the flawed doctrines of others instead of listening to and obeying the pure wisdom that only comes from the Holy Spirit. This is the rough trial to Heaven, all others only lead to eternal misery in Hell.

“Life offers many choices. Eternity offers only two.”  Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with being a guiding light in my life in this dark confusing world. I exalt You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. AMEN

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

The Doctrines of Scripture Are.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The doctrines of Scripture are at once . . .the source of consolation, and the means of sanctification. It is in our worse agony that we experience the greatest consolation from our Heavenly Beloved. Sometimes He speaks to us in His loving word (the Bible) and sometimes He comes to us in spirit and comforts us personally. Either way we experience Divine comfort and encouragement.

To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer according to the dictionary. We as Jehovahs children are set apart from the world in our thinking, living and actions. We are to be beautiful lights that glow from our Heavenly relationship with our Divine Designer, Jehovah, so that we are beacons guiding those stumbling in the dark world into the Celestial Light, Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture . . .come into the mind as knowledge, produce peace and love in the heart, spread the beauties of holiness over the character and conduct. These Holy doctrines are taught to us individually by the supreme teacher, The Holy Spirit. They are not taught as a system of religion but rather are taught as a manner in which the child of Jehovah become holy.

One of the fruitations of growing in knowledge and application of scripture in Heavenly peace and love as we emulate our best friend Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture are light; and like the rays of the sun, they sustain life at the root of the vine, and produce fruit on its branches.

Just as sunlight bring live giving vitality unto the vine so too does scripture enlarge spiritual life in the child of Jehovah. This life produces abundant harvests in the society it dwells in.

This heavenly light of truth gives . . . spiritual vitality to the soul, and holy conduct to the life. The truth will truly set us free from the lies in the world around us and fill us with vitality to share this light with others. This is first accomplished in the conduct of the saint.

The doctrines of Scripture are facts, which involve corresponding emotions and principles of action, and must, from their very nature, if believed, be operative upon the heart and the life.

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your abundant Divine knowledge in the proper manner in which to conduct myself according to Your wise principals.

Please bless me with the strength to consistently incorporate them into my daily life.

I gratefully thank You and humbly beseech You in the name of the wisest most obedient man to ever walk the earth 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

It Does not Matter What

VOICE OF GOD

  Am I now ]trying to win the favor and approval of men, or of God? Or am I seeking to please someone? If I were still trying to be popular with men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                  

It does not matter what he says, she says or they say. What matters is what Jesus says.

For those who claim that the prophesies in the Bible were written by man they have to have a very vivid imagination. How could the prophets thousands of years before hand prophesy about Jesus’ coming?

How could they prophesy about things they could not even would exist thousands of years ahead of time (like global warming (which is what John was talking about)? \

How could Daniel even imagine the Roman Empire when they were just primitive villagers at that time?

For those who claim.no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will here is what Jehovah says to them but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God Given by Divine Inspiration . 2 Peter 1 : 21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version          

For those who claim that the Bible was written by man upon his own inclination this verse refutes that claim. This verse destroys those who claim the Bible was written by man for his own ends. Being a Christian writer myself I speak from person experience where Jehovah guides my writing. If it does not meet His approval He lets me know and guides me to write what He wants to be said. Just read all of my article to see if this is true.

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.2 Timothy 3 : 16 – 17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with Your Divine wisdom which You shared with ordinary men and women like me to speak through the ages to Your children. I pray I always listen, understand and submit to the prudence You speak to me using their writings to continue to grow into a obedient, loving child of Yours. I meekly request this in the name of the wisest of all 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

To Surrender is Brave

God’s program of instruction which is grounded in faith [and requires surrendering the entire self to God in absolute trust and confidence].1 Timothy 1:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 I surrender to Jehovah completely. He does not accept anything else. That is the reason I love that song:”I surrender all”. It is one of the anthems of my life.

It has taken me decades to learn to trust Jehovah in every aspect of my life.

There has been so many times He has asked (Jehovah never demands anything of His children. He is too much of a gentleman to do that) to do things that seemed totally absurd to me. When I surrendered my will unto His, He accomplished amazing things in my life and through my life.

There were so many times I was completely convinced in a certain course of action but He asked me not to take it. It seemed insane not to disobey Him and go my own way using my limited wisdom. Indeed many mocked me for obeying a make believe God in the sky. In retrospect I am glad to have obeyed Him because those that did take that way ended up in total disaster.

Surrender is not an act of bravery but an act of trust and love unto He who loves us so much more that we could ever love Him back.

My life is a testimony that He never leads us the wrong way nor does not warn us of the wrong trail to travel down in life. He has a one hundred percent success rate. Now that is the type of adviser I wisely listen to and obey.

“Surrender is deeply misunderstood as an act of weakness. Surrender is the bravest and most lucid thing a human ever does, and that’s why it’s so precious to the Divine.” -Andrew Harvey 

Prayer: I surrender body, spirit and mind totally unto You Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) as the only voice I shall follow in every aspect of my life. This is done in the knowledge that because You love me You only desire what is best for me. Because You are the wisest of all, You know what is best for me. In humbly surrender unto You my Beloved Heavenly King I do make this pledge. Amen

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