In Such a Way That .

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

 Focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]. Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus demonstrated His love for us at a high cost. Knowing and understanding this should create an awe and deep love for Him. Yes we are to exhibit towards Him by understanding, however He requires that we pass along His style of love towards others as an act of worship towards Him.

Love is an action not an emotion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We accomplish this in our attitude towards others by not being arrogant nor abusive towards them but rather by being caring and respectful.

We serve Jehovah by serving with in our community. We need not be a missionary in some foreign land when there are ample opportunities all around us every day.

Of course we require knowledge of how to serve, when to serve and where to serve. Doing this on our own will only lead to disaster. We need the supreme teacher to instruct us in the way to accomplish the deeds Jehovah has prepared for us to do.

Now there is no sense in teaching someone to fish if they will never us those skills or go fishing in the first place. When the Holy Spirit enlightens us we are to be obedient and put into practice that which He has indoctrinated into us.

“The knowledge of Christ’s love for us should cause us to love Him in such a way that it is demonstrated in our attitude, conduct, and commitment to serve God. Spiritual maturity is marked by spiritual knowledge being put into action.” Edward Bedore

Prayer:I humbly ask of You Holy Spirit my master teacher to constantly instill in this child of the most Divine Love appropriate words, actions and thoughts of love which will exhibit my appreciation for such and wonderful gift He has blessed me with. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us Your Divine love when He walked amongst us 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

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.

Invite Your Audience Carefully

CHOOSE FRIENDS

I recently read this and from plenty of experience agree with it one hundred percent.

Life is a Theater…Invite Your Audience Carefully                  

Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a DISTANCE. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of, or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not going anywhere relationships or friendships. 

 Observe the relationships around you. Pay close attention. Which ones lift and which ones lower? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill? When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don’t really understand, know or appreciate you?                                                                     

The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you…the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.           

Remember that the people we hang with will have an impact on both our lives and our outlook.                  

And so, we must be careful to choose the people we hang out with, as well as the information with which we feed our minds.                                                                                               

We should not share our dreams with negative people, nor feed our dreams with negative thoughts.             

Who’s in your front row?  author unknown~

It is refreshing to walk away from toxic folks because if you do not, their poison will kill the joy, love and peace from your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah   

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with revealing unto me the recipe for daily and everlasting joy in my life. May I be blessed today with sharing this recipe with all I come in contact with. In the name of He who brings me unlimited joy to serve Jesus Christ my King I do humbly give thanks and request. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It Is the Sweetest.

JEHOVAHS COMMUNION

Now no one can look at the sun, bright as it is in the skies after the wind has swept them clean. Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty. Job 37:21-22 Holy Bible

I recently read an article where the author equated sunrise worship in nature with worshiping Baal or some other ancient deity.

I have to question whether the author is a city slicker.

It is with immense joy that I sit by the side of a stream in the early morning before sunrise. Just as the sun begins to rise a single bird with begin a beautiful song. So it is joined in by a chorus of other birds, frogs and crickets. I of course close my eyes and play what is in my heart as a morning love song to Jehovah. Oh what a wonderful sensation.

Afterwards He and I talk. It is a beautiful relationship.

Try sitting by the ocean or a lake and watch a sunrise or sunset and see if you do not feel an urge to have a heart to heart discussion with Jehovah.

Walk through a forest after a ice storm and see the icy crystals glistening and see if you do not marvel at Jehovah’s beauty.

Go for a walk through the forest during a light snowfall or walk through a meadow in the early morning drinking in the intoxicating fragrance of wildflowers and see if you do not feel close to Him and want to worship Him.

Indeed, didn’t David write His most beautiful Psalms while in the wilderness?

I say that: “The closer you are to nature the closer you are to God.” Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for the wonderful blessing of sharing such a special time with You in You majestic beautiful creation. May others be moved to worship You in this simple yet beautiful place of worship as well. I joyfully give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

We Know Not When.

JESUS' GUIDANCE

This is what the Lord says: “I am going to remove you from the face of the earth. You will die this year!” Jeremiah. 28:16

We know not when our time of departure from this world shall come upon us.

If the word departure sounds like something you hear concerning a trip it is well minded that that is what death is.

It is a trip from a limited fleshly existence on this planet to a trip to an eternal spiritual world.

With this in view just as you plan a vacation trip so should you plan your spiritual eternal destiny with ever more diligence.

Earthly trips can and do go array but there is no deviation from your eternal spiritual destiny.

Do not be casual for one moment and say that you will dedicate more of your life unto Christ when _____ fill in the blank.

The length of life in an individual is the most uncertain thing in existence.

What is it that hinders your devotion unto Christ?

Is it that you must finish school first?

What makes you so cock sure that your time on earth will allow it?

Is it that you have a family to care for or until you have paid off your mortgage?

Then you are a fool.

Look around and see how many young widows and widowers there are.

Is it that you need to pay off your mortgage first?

See the for sale signs that are there because the slaves unto the bank died before they could pay off their mortgage.

The time to dedicate your daily life unto Christ is now because you do not even know if you will awake to see the morning sun. Then it will be too late and you will have forfeited your eternal Heavenly home because of your earthly cares.

In whatever state you die this year—that you will be forever!

Will Christ say to you: “Well done good and faithful servant.” or will He say to you:” Get away from Me because I do not know you.”

Put Christ first in your daily lives and allow Him to help you take care of the earthly cares of daily life. I say help you because yes He may take care of a situation for us however most times we must be prepared to work in harmony with the Holy Spirit in our daily lives to succeed.

The time to dedicate our lives to Jesus is now because there may not be a tomorrow. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh how I continuously praise You my Beloved Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the unsurpassing privilege of being Your humbly obedient servant. Although many of the tasks You have assigned this submissive servant to do have been exceedingly challenging, they were always rewarding in accomplishing to make Your heart dance with joy as You make mine in service unto You. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

Considering the Magnitude of Its Importance

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 And just as it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment. Hebrews 9:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unaided human reason, we repeat, never did, never can, assure us that there is a future state at all.

There is life after death, we all know it.

What will our future look like when we have passed on to the other side ( when we depart our fleshly body in death and enter into the unknown eternity of the spiritual world)?

All human reason and imagination is is foolishness and imagination.

Considering that our presence in this world we be for an eternity we had better go to the most reliable source. That is not going to physics, or to new age teachers or psychologists, nor to scientists.

There is only One whose absolute truth will bless us or curse us with a fainting glimpse of our eternal destiny.

His revelation will either fill our spirit with joy, anticipation and assurance or it will envelope our spirits with terror, anguish and anger. His name of course is Jehovah. He will and does pull back the curtain of eternity to give us a glimpse of our eternal home, whether it be Heaven or whether it be Hell.

But now [that extraordinary purpose and grace] has been fully disclosed and realized by us through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus who [through His incarnation and earthly ministry] abolished death [making it null and void] and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 2 Timothy 1:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Considering the magnitude of its importance of eternity to us, we had better listen and take heed to what the Holy Spirit teaches us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with the incontestable truth that only comes from You. Thank you for teaching it to my limited mind in a way that the truth can be grasped and understood. Thank you for assisting me in incorporating this truth into my daily life. Yours is the only school that I am addicted to attending every day because of its amazing lessons learned at the feet of the wisest teach, the Holy Spirit. I exalt Thee in the name of the supreme Teacher 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

Talk About Arrogant.

 Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive.  And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’  Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there.  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).”’ Luke 12:16-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Talk about arrogant.

This guy takes full credit while giving Jehovah none.

Did the rich man make the land fertile and productive or did Jehovah?

Than should the rich man not have given thanks unto Jehovah and share with the less fortunate as Jehovah shared with him?

Who determines when we die, the rich man or Jehovah?

Than should he not have used his time wisely to store up treasures in Heaven rather that sit on his laurels?

Should he not have given unto his community as Jehovah greatly gave unto him?

Did the rich man celebrate his good fortune with others or did he greedily keep his parties for himself?

Should we not share with others our good fortune as Jehovah as blessed us with them?

How about you?

Do you share in your blessings ,both great and small, with others or do you greedily keep them for yourself?

Do you publicly praise Jehovah for His graciousness towards you or do you brag about it as if it was you who did the accomplishment?

Do you waste your retirement years going on cruises or other luxuries or do you take this opportunity to share your time and wisdom with the younger generation?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with all of the abundant mental, physical and spiritual gifts provided for me on a daily basis.

May these be used as an opportunity to give thanks to You both privately and publicly and to be used to help those in Your family that are in need.

I joyfully give all praise unto You and request this blessing in the name of He who always used His Divine gifts for the benefit of others Jesus Christ. Amen

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