One of the Most Important Things

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalm 143:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

One of the most important things learned in life is that our greatest lessons are learned from our failures.

Just look up any invention and find out how many times the inventor failed before finally having success.

When we mess up we fess up and Jehovah forgives us, picks us up and tells us okay, you messed up, now learn your lesson and continue on towards you maturity in your walk towards Heaven.

If you have not learned your lesson, do not worry, Jehovah will allow it to be repeated until it is learned.

I believe failure is the greatest tool the Holy Spirit uses to teach us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The more we learn from our failures and how the Holy Spirit guides us to success from them them more we become firmly established upon the path to Heaven the Holy Spirit is guiding us on. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is one of the greatest crimes parents and teachers commit with children. They do not let them learn from their failures.

Prayer:Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your wise, powerful and effective manner of teaching me. May it always help to evolve my relationship with my loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah loving big brother Jesus and You the most amazing Teacher ever closer and stronger.                                                                                                                 I give thanks and humbly ask of these blessings in the name of the best Teacher 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

I Wanna Know so I can Do.

follow your ways

 Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

 I wanna know so I can do as my Heavenly King desires. Because I love Jesus so much I have a deep desire to know what He wishes for me to do.

We need to daily commit to seeking out the best instruction for our lives.

And, of course, the best instruction manual is The Holy Bible.

There are other resources such as on line daily devotionals like Our Daily Bread. For those who prefer to listen rather than read a fantastic resource is https://www.sermonaudio.com/main.asp Both are great.

When we dedicate ourselves to asking for instructions for the coming day with commitment to obeying the instructions given, we will find that Jehovah guides us along on our day even though many times it does not feel as if He is there.

Then, there is the big picture in which Jehovah moulds our personality which takes decades. Being a little slow at catching on at times (we all are) it means there are occasions when the information must be digested a little at a time.

As well, there is a slow process for us to serve Jesus’ big purpose.

This may take years and involve many baby steps along the way.

I love to learn but sometimes it is difficult to put that knowledge into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for the distinction of being one of Your disciples. I love to sit and listen and learn from the Holy Spirit whom You have sent to instruct me in the proper manner in which to be a revered servant of Yours. I applaud You for this favour in Your holy name. Amen

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

Should Magnify Our

WORK IN PROGRESS

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes the only way to learn is through the hard times.

In the easy times we tend to take things more lightly, especially concerning our obedience to Jehovah.

My life is a testimony to that.

It is in the hard times I learned the most and grew the most. They definitely were not enjoyable but I praise Jehovah for putting through them.

One good aspect of this type of learning is our appreciation for our Heavenly Teacher for the manner in which He teaches us the lesson. He does so in a manner in which the lesson will never be forgotten.

The other is that we more mature Christians use these lessons to pass on to those not as mature as us, hopefully to prevent them from making the same errors as us. For those going through the lessons, it encourages them to submit to the teachers instructions.

“Affliction comes to the believer not to make him sad, but sober; not to make him sorry, but wise. Even as the plow enriches the field so that the seed is multiplied a thousandfold, so affliction should magnify our joy and increase our spiritual harvest.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with so many afflictions. Although they were not enjoyable at the times, they were necessary to mature me in my walk towards You in Heaven. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to not only endure them but to prosper because of them. I praise You in the name of He who endure the worse affliction of all for me 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

It is Unbeatable.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every time I get in a debate, whether with a member of Jehovahs family or of those which belong to satans, I quote a Bible verse. Then it is explained what it meant in the culture of the day, in my life and how to put it in application in my life. It is unbeatable.

Now I love it when a Christian does the same with me because it expands my knowledge and help me improve my life.

For those that desire to remain in walking with satan to Hell, I have seen them scream like an insane banshee and run away.

For those who are open to the message it opens their eyes. Sometimes they want to learn more. Sometimes they walk away and digest what has been shared with them and come back later, eager to learn more and to begin a commitment to becoming a member of Jehovahs family.

That is why it is imperative that we study our Bibles under the tutorship of the Holy Spirit.

“Defend the Bible? I would just as soon defend a lion. Just turn the Bible loose. It will defend itself.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with the revelation of the supreme truth in Your Holy book. It is my defender, instruction for life manual and reassurer of Your love and the Heavenly home You have prepared for me. I praise You in the name of He who only spoke the truth to us during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Tutorship from Above

VOICE OF GOD

But the wisdom from above is first pure [morally and spiritually undefiled], then peace-loving [courteous, considerate], gentle, reasonable [and willing to listen], full of compassion and good fruits. It is unwavering, without [self-righteous] hypocrisy [and self-serving guile]. James 3:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We Christians are all teachers to the dark world.

We do not have to attend some university to become Christs teachers. We have to sit at the masters feet and listen to Him.

First He must teach us to be moral because without this we are no different than those stumbling to Hell in the darkness.

Then we must learn to be spiritually in harmony with our Beloved wise Teachers.

After that we must learn to be courteous (do not shove Christ down anyone’s throat. If they reject Him we must accept that.)

We need to consider where they are in life without putting ourselves above them (one way some do this is by pitying others while feeling superior to them ).

We must be patient and gentle with them (while being firm when necessary, do not allow anyone to walk all over you. Jesus never did so why should you?).

It is necessary to be reasonable with others while being uncompromising in Christs teachings.

Sometimes they are not mature enough to understand what we are trying to teach them. Sometimes there is a cultural difference.

We must be compassionate with others because we all have our battle scars and battles we are enduring at the present. That does not mean we are to be a crutch for them but rather be someone they can pour out their hurt and anger to as we share the healing power of Christ with them.

This is not a week or month long endevour but one that will mean years of commitment towards them. It takes years for some fruit to be produced while at other time it only can take maybe a month.

I have heard many so called intellectually superiors discuss matters that leaves me looking at them and wondering what planet they are from. They are usually very arrogant and love to pump their egos up. They are some of the most pitiful creature ever encountered.

To receive Heavens tutorship from above you have to keep both feet planted firmly on the rock of Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Praise You Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for being such a patient Teacher with this difficult student. Please bless me to reciprocate with those eager to learn about You as I reveal You to them.

Thank you for the never ending tutorship as You mold me to emulate the greatest teacher to ever bless this world, Your supreme astute Teacher Jesus Christ. I exalt The in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

There are Two Important Parts

They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people understood what was being read. Nehemiah 8:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are two important parts to this verse.

The first part I would call keep it simple. Do not use big words or go into big philosophical debates with them. Just share the Message with them. A majority of times they are most impressed with you sharing what Christ has done in your life and through your life. That makes Him real to them.

The second part is to explain what the Bible verse or verses meant to the folks in that culture and in that time so that there is deeper understanding.

So many times I have encountered Christians that quote a Bible verse however when questioned on its meaning in the context of the time and culture they have no idea which makes them appear rather stupid.

Before you go sharing the Message do your homework so you are prepared. This does not take a few days or week but years. Look how long it took Paul before He began teaching (I believe it was two years).

Before you go sharing the Bible, learn it and live it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge.) bless me with the knowledge on how to deliver the Message in a clear simple manner in which the soul in which it is being delivered to can understand it and have a thirst for me and a yearning to become a Holy child of Yours.

Please bless me with the knowledge in understanding when those who are not receptive to receiving Your loving Message so as to not waste my valuable time while being respectful towards them.

I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest deliverer of the Message Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Who Has a Head of Wax

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.

The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.

Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).

Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me).  Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).

Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).

Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Those who have a head of wax must not walk out in the sun (know your weaknesses) Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.

Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.

Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.

I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses 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

How can a Young Man Keep?

                                       

How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping watch [on himself] according to Your word [conforming his life to Your precepts]. Psalm 119:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

He is the best life coach there is, His name is Jesus.

Do not forget that because He walked amongst us Jesus has gone through everything we have gone through and so much more. So, who better to go to when you are experiencing problems?

Now when Jesus is your best bud does it not sense that you would eagerly want to know everything there is about Him?

Just as you want to spend time with your earthly friends should you not so much more desire to spend time with your Heavenly bestest friend?

Pick a scheduled time every day to not just read the Bible but also to spend time talking with Him (not just about your problems either. Ask Him to reveal more of Himself to you so you will be blessed with loving Him greater and greater.).

Speaking from personal experience you will never be prepared for the awesome, majestic revelations He will share with you. When He does you will understand the phrase of Your heart dances with joy and your heart dances with love. You will yearn to spend more and more time with Him instead of wasting your time in the world which will lose all fleshly satisfaction unto you.

“If ye keep watch over your hearts, and listen for the Voice of God and learn of Him, in one short hour ye can learn more from Him than ye could learn from Man in a thousand years.” — Johannes Tauler

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit El Deah (God of knowledge) for the precious gift of Your continuous knowledge of You, Jehovah and Jesus. It is always wonderful the beautiful attributes of youse that You share with me. I exalt You in the name of the best teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

 Trust In and Rely

                             

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes time and experience to trust in the Lord, it does not happen all at once.

It has taken many decades and trials and tribulations to learn to trust in the Lord in every aspect of my life.

Now, I do not make decisions but rather trust in the Lord for His divine guidance.

Of course there will be times of testing when the Lord see’s how good of a student I am in what He has taught me. Sometimes I still fail but that is okay.

Do you remember when you were in school?

Did you pass every test that was given to you?

Of course not.

That is not bad it just means you have not learned the lesson good enough so it must be taught to you again.

So too it is with the Lord. When you admit your failure, apologize for it and am willing to learn from it Jehovah forgives you and proceeds to teach the lesson again. It will not happen the same way because then you are ready for it and that is not trust.

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with the patience and forgiveness when my faith in You was weak. Thank You that You have slowly and with forbearance strengthen my trust in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

By Far More Christian Than

                                                  

 There is no [distinction between] Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, [nor between nations whether] barbarian or Scythian, [nor in status whether] slave or free, but Christ is all, and in all [so believers are equal in Christ, without distinction]. Colossians 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 Do you notice the mention of the Scythian and wonder who they were?

Scythian the 8th century BC, they possibly raided Zhou China. At their peak, Scythians came to dominate the entire steppe zone,stretching from the Carpathian Mountains in the west to central China (Ordos culture).

When I was a teacher in China some Chinese Christians were sharing with me how Christianity came to China early in the first century A.D. When I looked up who they were on wikipedia.org it fits perfectly what my Christian sisters were informing of. It took me about three years to come to grips with what they were saying but searching the scriptures proved they were right.

I believe we in the west are arrogant in believing that Christianity is mostly a western religion.

When I studied Chinese Christianity and saw how they behaved they were by far more Christian than the majority of so called Christians in the west.

As well their Bible is different form the wests (for example the only apostle they have is Thomas because he was the only one of Christs disciples to travel there and they have the Book of Enoch in their Bible) and I found it more in line with true Christianity.

As well on the bus going to church the Chinese Christians and we excitedly shared with what Jehovah had done in our lives that week(The members from the west were very annoyed by it.They preferred to talk about pop music, the latest movies or TV shows or fashion- the material world- rather than Christ in their lives).

How many western Christians get excited to talk about what Jehovah has done in their lives?

On the way back we would discuss the sermon.

How many so called western Christians discuss the sermon after service?

Before church they would have prayer meetings and after church they would have Bible study classes.

How many churches have that every Sunday- indeed, how many even teach from the Bible any more?

Most of them have suffered a great deal by becoming Christians.

How many in the west are willing to suffer for Christ?

Do not tell me you are a Christian, show me. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

We in the west can learn so much of true worship from our Chinese Christian brothers and sister.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah God of knowledge bless me with abundant knowledge of how to be a loving obedient child of Yours every day.Please ingrain it into every molecule of my being so as to glorify You. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the all knowing 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
