We Are On a Journey.

LEADS TO HEAVEN

 Be dressed and ready for active service.” Luke 12:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In the Christian life we are on a journey. Yes it is nice to think about what Heaven will be like but we need to stayed focused on where we are in the present and where Jehovah is leading us on our journey towards Heavens Gate.

We are useless to Christ if we spend our Christian life day dreaming about Heaven instead of concentrating on being Christs servant on the journey there. Joseph a servant of Christ.

On this journey many times we do not have a road map of where Christ is sending us our what our service entails. It may be a journey of being a godly husband or wife, a godly parent. It may be on a journey of your vocation as say a nurse or a waitress at a quaint restaurant.

During the course of this journey there will be many dangers, pitfalls, loneliness, and exhaustion. It is at these times we shall draw ever closer unto our Heavenly Beloved and He shall draw the closest to us. In His loving grace we shall experience His amazing love, wisdom, comfort, encouragement and power. This shall instill in us a wonder and awe of His majesty. The result of this is an ever deeper desire to trust Him on our journey to Heavens gate and desire to be a loyal bond servant ( a bond servant is one who serves out of free will) unto Him.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” — Ursula LeGuin

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with walking with me throughout this adventure called life. It is in following You that we have traveled amazing paths and accomplished incredible feats together. I praise You in the name of He who is the light that I follow of the trail of life 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

Reach Out to Them.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

But the stranger who resides with you shall be to you like someone native born among you; and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:34 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

They are everywhere, especially in todays electronic society, lonely people.

We as Christians are to reach out to them. It is the perfect opportunity to share explaining to them the prospect of being blessed with a loving relationship with He who is the best friend one could ever have and a loving relationship of which no other can compare.

Before adventuring out for the day may I suggest you ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to someone who needs compassion.

Trust, me , when you sincerely ask of Him, He will guide you to just the right soul.

May I suggest you take a course in how to approach others and how to listen to them. As well, it is advisable to carry around a list of services available to help them if need be. So, say for example say someone is lonely, why not find out their interests and help them find a club to join, especially a Christian one.

“We need to care less about whether our children are academically gifted & more about whether they sit with the lonely kid in the cafeteria.” unknown

Now discretion is required because of dangerous places and folks. Do not approach a junkie when they are high or someone who is so angry looking they look like they are ready to explode.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me with the guidance of the Holy Spirit to guide me to those with open lonely hearts unto Your most awesome love. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose love for the lost took Him all the way to the cross 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

Stubbornness Come in Two Forms.

                                                        

Stubbornness comes in two forms.

Form number one is arrogance or another word for it is pride. Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do the I did or I said’s drive you bonkers?

They do me.

They cannot say a sentence without pumping themselves up. They are so polluted with pride it is a stench for me to be round them. They foolishly believe the whole world revolves around them.

And, you know what?

They are very shallow and fragile. Anything that pricks their pride and they get deflated like a punctured balloon they pull a temper tantrum. I have seen many an adult become indignant and insulting to anyone who brings them down to earth. They feel as if a capital offense has been committed to them. They are very immature. They pull a lot of pouty pouts. I have seen some fall to the ground and pound their fists and kick their feet into the air while screaming like a spoiled little brat (yes I am talking about adults).

Steer clear of these creatures less you learn their ways and fall into the same disgrace as they do. Form number two is greed.

“Because he knew no quietness or calm within him [because of his greed], He does not retain anything he desires. Job 20:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

These destructive creatures do not care who they hurt as long as they get what they want. The problem of course though is that most times it back fires on them. I have met many that were warned that to attempt to do a certain thing would lead to disaster. Their response is: “Who are you to try to tell me what to do?”. They then proceed in the venture only to be met with the forewarned disaster. Their response is always the same. They blame everyone and everything around them rather than be mature and take the responsibility for it themselves.

Avoid these creatures at all cost as they will lead you into disaster and disaster.

Pride come in two forms. Form number one is arrogance. Form number two is greed. They both end in disaster. Jospeh a son of Jehovah

Finally as they age they will find that they will be fighting their own bodies which results in constant pain. I have seen many elders refuse to accept the restrictions on their bodies only to end up in bed in intense pain. The amazing thing is though is that they never learn.

Like a dog that returns to his vomit Is a fool who repeats his foolishness. Proverbs 26:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Then when they are put into seniors homes because they refuse to listen and obey their doctors instructions, they constantly fight a losing battle with the staff. They are continuously trying to tell the staff what to do while refusing to co-operate with them. They become resentful because they cannot have their own way and pout. The result of this is that no one want to be around them so they just sit there crying because they are so lonely all day.

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth ( Lord Strong -Mighty ) bless me with the strength to burn off all stubbornness in my disposition. Please come and reprimand me when I am being foolish by being stubborn. I sincerely request this so important request in the name of He who was never stubborn 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

No Man Can Fulfill His Calling.

                                            

Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor]. 1 Peter 4:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I remember so many in my younger years bragging that they did not need anybody. They only lived for themselves. Now that they are older and in need of help there is no one to help them and they have no one to love them. They are depressed, lonely folks whose daily life is a living Hell of loneliness.

I have seen so many use their God given talents to help others. Now that they are older and in need of help they are surrounded with folks falling all over them helping them. Their is a contented life filled with love, joy and peace.

Jehovah has endowed each of us with a special talent that is to be used in the community. To neglect that talent or to use it for your own selfish ends is indeed a great sin in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. Those who neglect to use it for their God given purpose pay dearly for it in their elder years.

When you surround yourself with nobody but yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah.  

No man can compass the ends of life by drawing a little line around himself upon the ground. No man can fulfill his calling as a Christian by seeking the welfare of his wife and family only, for these are only a sort of greater self.” Charles Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with plentiful opportunities to enrich myself with the most precious treasure of all, those of the heart, every day. In doing so I know I am also enriching Your heart which enriches my heart all the more. I exalt Thee in the name of my greatest treasure Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you A house full of sunshine, Hearts full of cheer, Love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

They are Calling Jehovah Wicked.

Differing weights [one for buying and another for selling] and differing measures, Both of them are detestable and offensive to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable and offensive [to the Lord]. How much more [unacceptable and insulting can it be] when he brings it with evil intention? Proverbs 21:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Detestable means arousing or meriting intense dislike in the dictionary.

So many times I hear preachers and others say that the thing we hate the most is the thing in which we ourselves do as well.

In the Christian perspective they are dead wrong.

As you can see from these verses Jehovah hates these things so if , by their reasoning, Jehovah hates these things that must mean He practices these things. That means He is not Holy and prefect.

The more in love you are with another the more your disposition becomes like them and you desire to emulate them. Watch a child try to emulate their father or mother for proof.

It only stands to reason then that what Jehovah hates we hate.

I hate liars, the proud, the thieves, the instigators and mean spirited.

That does not mean I want to kill them, indeed it brings great sorrow to see their lifestyle because it only brings them depression, loneliness, sorrow and pain but that does not mean I excuse it nor tolerate it. When I try to teach them about Christ and they turn their back on Him (it is Christ they are rejecting not you) that is an insult and I turn my back on them. It is a sad thing to do but it is necessary because they are a waste of time and energy.

I pray Jehovah leads me to receptive ones and move on.

These six things the Lord hates; Indeed, seven are repulsive to Him: A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that creates wicked plans, Feet that run swiftly to evil, A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths], And one who spreads discord (rumours) among brothers. Proverbs 6:16-19The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is also a misconception that Jehovah hates the sin but loves the sinner.

That is a flat out lie.

He hates the wicked that refuse to follow His guidance and openly rebel against Him with a holy hate.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me to hate what You hate in a holy manner so as to not allow what is wicked to be tolerated nor welcome in my life. I sincerely request this in the name of the Holy of Holies whom shall judge and reward the wicked according to their evil deeds Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Lord Favours

The Lord favours those who fear and worship Him [with awe-inspired reverence and obedience] Psalm 147:11Holy Bible Amplified Version

It may not seem like it many times in our walk with Christ that He actually favours us but let us look at it.

When hard times come, and they always do to both those of Christs and those who are not, we have the assurance that the Holy Spirit is there with us to comfort us, strengthen us and guide us through them.

When sorrow comes into our lives, as it always does to everyone from time to time, we have a comforter there who will comfort us, assure us and fill us with Divine love while those in the world do not .

When trials and tribulation comes our way, as it does to everyone from time to time, we have a Divine guide to help us through them while encouraging us and teaching us valuable lessons through them while those in the world do not.

When we go through times of loneliness, as all of us do from time to time, we have a Divine presence there to comfort us and love us while those in the world do not.

And, most importantly, when death comes a knocking at our door, as it does to everyone, we will have an angel to take our hand and escort us to a beautiful Heavenly home while those in the world do not.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for the amazing abundant blessings You have daily blessed me with. I am so much in awe, reverence, respect and love with You for Your Heavenly gifts bestowed upon this cherished child of Yours. I exalt You in the name of the greatest gift You have blessed mankind with Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What is the Differance?

 

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. John 14:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is the differance?

The peace Jesus blesses us with is that we have a loving Father in Heaven that cares about us and cares for us. No matter how fierce the storms we know He is walking through them with us. It can never be taken from us.

The peace the world looks for is being financially secure. That can be taken from you in a moment with a job loss or bankruptcy. A house, which can be destroyed by fire or natural disaster. Our health, which can be taken from us with one diagnosis from the doctor. Our wits which can be taken from us in an accident or with something like Alzheimer Disease. And of course what good does all this material wealth do for us when we age and our bodies and minds break down, when all of our loved ones and friends have either deserted as we live out our final days in a seniors home where each moment is a living hell of loneliness and sadness?

With us Christians we know Jesus will never desert us and always loves and comforts us.

Doing a lot of volunteer work at a seniors home and watching my parents generation in their elder years, I have seen both sides of this coin and know it to be true.

What good does this material wealth do you as you are terrified as you are drawing our final breath and are going into the unknown (but in reality you know you are going into Hell)?

Christians are blessed with peace in our final breath with the knowledge that our Loving Father will send an angel to us to guide us to our Heavenly home while those in the world are terrified as they know there will be an angel to drag them to the gates of Hell and throw them into eternal damnation and torment.

Doing a lot of volunteer work at a seniors home and watching my parents generation in their elder years, I have seen both sides of this coin and know it to be true.

When we live moment by moment in Christs love, that is our golden years. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace through all my trials sorrows and tribulations. It is not only a calming peace and comforting peace but a peace that blesses with strength to not only endure but to prosper. I exalt you in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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