Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?

EXAMINE YOURSELF
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4   Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                            

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumours, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying. All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offences and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

The Longer You Delay.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts and passions. Romans 6:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a gardener I know full well that when a tree see becomes a twig you pull it out immediately. Otherwise, with some tree’s it is almost impossible to remove.

So too it is with sin.

The longer you dwell in the sewer of sin, the more it seeps into the pours of your body and spirit. This is a slow physical and spiritual death.

Now some say I will sin when I am young and sow me wild seeds. Then, I will repent when I get older. They are living a fools dream. I have witnessed a small seed not only germinate in a soul but also this leads to others sins and more and more sins until it completely consumes the man or woman. Just listen to a drug addict and most will share with you how it started out small and was fun. Then it became a cruel slave master. The slave master brought with him other slave masters who were just as unmerciful (more addictions). It becomes a living Hell. It amazes me that most drug addicts prefer this Hell rather than become clean (which is why all the free drug clinics are useless unless the addicted want help).

Almost all of my habitual sins began small and over time became deep rooted in my per sona. It took some serious and painful burning off of the dross by the Holy Spirit to cleanse me of them. We need to be constantly attentive to the Holy Spirits guidance in our lives to avoid these destructive temptations every day.

There are still a few that Jehovah allows to keep me humble and keep me reliant upon Him instead of myself.

“The longer you delay, the more your sin gets strength and rooting. If you cannot bend a twig, how will you be able to bend it when it is a tree?” — Richard Baxter

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for sending the Holy Spirit to help deliver me from poisonous sins which will destroy the Holy Spirit with in me if they are permitted to take root. I praise You in the name of He who yanked out the worlds sins with His blood 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

True Christian Love Must Be

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND 

The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.] 1 John 4:8 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

True Christian love must be . . .

Blended with all our habits. A habit is formed by repetition of actions over time until they become as natural to us as breathing. Therefore we need the Holy Spirit to guide us in our daily actions to habitually exhibit Christ’s love towards others at every opportune time that comes our way.

Diffused through all our conduct. Our conduct will be a spiritual by product of our habits.

Forming our character. Our character is formed by the the Divine will and attributes of Christ who has shown us what Holy character is by His actions.

It is His morals which is formed in or hearts , minds and actions not the perverted vile worldly ones. His is to be supreme in every action we partake every moment of every day. We can only succeed in this arduous undertaking through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to which we must constantly submit to whether it is delightful or difficult. Breathing in our desires.

Christian desire is for the the glorifying of Christ and the betterment of those around us with the ultimate goal of leading them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Speaking in our words. Loves words are encouraging, healing, teaching and comforting. The only way we can attain this is by constantly requesting the Holy Spirit guide our words and obeying His direction of speech in each individual circumstance.

Beaming in our eyes. Christian love must have gentle love in our eyes not earthly lusts nor hatred of prejudice towards others Love is the most difficult action we undertake every day.

Yet, it is also Divine in its nature and Heavenly in its rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) please bless me with an abundance of Divine love to bountifully share with others so as to emulate You. May this love direct them unto the greatest love, You which is one of the greatest gifts You may bless me with. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose infinite love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Comes Naturally.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

 “The heart is deceitful above all things And it is extremely sick; Who can understand it fully and know its secret motives? Jeremiah 17;9 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Folks see these mass murders, war, rape, unrestrained lust for both sexual pleasure as well as sensual like clothes cars and such. They see disrespect, greed, ungratefulness, lying, manipulating, conniving and deceitfulness. They see wanton destruction of nature, societies and families. They shake their heads and wonder where it come from.

It comes naturally.

Folks try all kinds of remedies which naturally fail, especially from what I see in “safe injection sites” (it is supposed to be a safe place for junkies it get their”fix” but ends up destroying the surrounding neighbourhoods with used needles on their lawns and in playgrounds. They have to endure these stoned creatures walking around their neighbourhoods like raving lunatics. I have seen it in more than one city and it destroys the downtown core which is made up of mostly small business.).

What is needed is not the natural but the super natural power that only comes from Jehovah. We need Him in our personal lives, family lives and societal lives.

Every society down through out the ages that has moved away from Jehovah has moved towards its own self destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please YAHWEH-Ropheka :God our healer always administer Thy Holy medicine in generous proportion in my mind, spirit and body to remain pure unto Thee. May this healing balm gush forth from me unto the sick in this dark world and guide them to the Supreme Divine Healer, You. I humbly request this in the name of the greatest Healer to ever walk this earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What kind of a Runner are You?

                                              

Run away from youthful lusts—pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those [believers] who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What kind of a runner are you?

Do you run as fast to your Bible as you do to porno sites on line?

Would you drink from a septic tank?

Why not?

Well just as the feces in the septic tank will make your body sick, so too will porno sites pollute your mind (and before you women go pointing fingers at us men like we are pigs, there is a large majority of women that watch that filth as well).

When we are youths we are inexperienced and easy prey for the alluring lies of satan.

That is why we need mature Christians to guide us away from the destruction fantasies (once you fall for satan you will quickly find out it is no fun but many times pure living Hell, just ask any junkie).

Now notice I said mature and not older. Someone can be older in years but very immature in their walk with Christ. Their advice is useless and indeed many times very disastrous.

It is the duty of us older Christians to warn those who are young in their walk with Christ when they are fallowing the wrong path. Be patient with them as Christ is patient with you. Be firm with them as Christ is firm with you. Be respectful with them just as Christ is with you (that includes allowing them to fall into the temptation if that is their choice but to welcome them back if they repent).

Satans temptations always lead to destruction. That is why we need mature Christians to guide us away from them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for Your Divine intercession when satan temps me with destructive lusts. Thank you for Your providence in bringing mature Christians to counsel me when I foolishly begin to stray. I praise You in the name of He who resisted satans temptations in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Why Don’t They

For this is the will of God, that you be sanctified [separated and set apart from sin]: that you abstain and back away from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honour [being available for God’s purpose and separated from things profane], not [to be used] in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God and are ignorant of His will. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Most popular TV shows and movies glorify sex out as something lustful and fun. Why don’t they show those same people going to the doctor to get treated for syphilis, gonorrhea and aids?

Why don’t they show an unborn baby being ripped from its mothers womb and being thrown into an incinerator like a piece of garbage?

Why don’t they show most children born out of wed lock join gangs and lead destructive lives?

Why don’t they show the affected one with sexual disease explain to family and friends they have a life destroying disease because of their poor choices?

Why don’t they show people laying in bed afterwards wondering how it feel that someone just used your body to satisfy their lust and how they feel empty, sad and used?

Why don’t they show young people who lose out on going to school, getting a good education and job being cast into the abyss of welfare, booze, drugs and a meaningless life?

Could it be because sex sells while responsible, respectful, loving relationships do not?

Could it be because most people do not want to think of the life altering consequences of their foolishness?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) forgive the arrogant who blatantly give You the finger by abusing their bodies and then blaming You when it comes time to pay the penalty. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest Teacher who was ignored Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Bag with Holes in It.

 “Is it time for you yourselves to live in your [expensive] paneled houses while this house [of the Lord] lies in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! You have planted much, but you harvest little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have enough to be intoxicated; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns wages earns them just to put them in a bag with holes in it [because God has withheld His blessing].” Haggai 1:3-6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you have a bag with holes in it ( instead of bag insert wallet )?

Could it be because you are so selfish that you earn a penny and spend a dollar ( on yourself of course)? So when you refuse to share your wealth Jehovah allow the devil to tempt you into getting into dept to satisfy your unquenchable desire for more, more, more. Then you are miserable.

Could it be that you plant a lot of seeds to be friends with others while neglecting the crop of daily interaction with Jehovah so you harvest a little from your relationship with Him?

Could it be that in your quest for recognition form others ( self-centeredness- look at me, look at me) that you never get enough and go to foolish and many times dangerous lengths to get noticed by others instead of directing them to Jehovah? As a consequence you are never satisfied. Instead of nurturing a loving relationship with Jehovah you nurture your own ego and as a result you are cold with little or no love in your life. As a result the temple of Jehovah that resides within you is in ruins.

Prayer: I humbly pray my loving Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) that You daily guide this modest servant of Your to constantly build upon and glorify Your Holy Temple so that it is a beacon to those walking in the cold dark world to You amazing Temple. I sincerely request this in the name of He who shines the most brilliantly of Your holy temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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