We Must Prefer the Invisible Realities.

GOD GIVE A HOME

 So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable. 2 Corinthians 4:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We must prefer the invisible realities of eternity,to the visible things of time; and amid all that is . . . dazzling to sense, gratifying to appetite,and dear to passion.

By faith, spend a life of . . . self-denial, mortification of sin, and separation from the world.

Yes, the world says, buy my razzle and dazzle and you will by happy. But it is like a junkie. Once the high of your new toy has worn off, you need to go out and foolishly spend your money on something else to get you your high of happiness. In the end, you end up with nothing but misery as you become deeply in debt and your toys break down or become obsolete.

For those of us in Christ however, He reigns in our heart which is not visible to the outside world. He promises us a world we have never seen nor can imagine. We trust Him when He promises a home in Heaven just for us even though we cannot even imagine what it will be like. And, best of all, He promises the ultimate high, that of just being with Him to which nothing else can compare with.

I look forward to the ultimate high that you never come down from, that of spending an eternity in the ultimate love affair with Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with the purest ecstasy of joy in a loving relationship with You. I praise You in the name of He whose presence makes my heart dance a wonderful gig of joy 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.

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.

Regret is Stronger than Gratitude.

be loving like jesus

Do not neglect to extend hospitality to strangers [especially among the family of believers—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously]Hebrews 13:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen more people come to a friend or family members funeral than to their house to visit them while they are alive. I hear them wail how much they will miss their relative or friend when in life they neglected them. It is so phony it is pathetic.

I make it a point to be respectful, polite and friendly with every one when possible (there are some unlovable folks in this world who will do nothing but abuse you and use you. They bring nothing but grief to the heart and misery to the life. Those ones are avoided like the plague). You never know if the next time you see them they will be in a casket.

Now that is not the reason to be respectful, polite and friendly with them, we do so as an extension of Christs love in our hearts. We have no regrets at any funeral though.

“Dead people receive more flowers than the living because regret is stronger than gratitude.” Anne Frank

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me that my voice may always echo Your voice of love, respect and encouragement to all that come my way this day and every day. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who always spoke in a loving tone when He walked among us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What They Gave to Him, They Give to You.

the-lord-is-my-strength

Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. John 15:20 New International Version

Two words that are oxy morons: Christian and non-suffering.

Many people today have the false belief that when they give their lives to Christ it will be a cake walk and a bed of roses.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

When you commit your live to Christ you can expect to be persecuted.

Many times the worst persecution will come from your family. They will see the change in you and not like it. They will fight you to walk away from Christ. Most times this will mean you must walk away from family. It will be painful.

The same goes for friends. They will be confused as to why you have changes and will viciously mock you because of the change in your life. It will not be pleasant.

You can expect to be treated like a geek at school and work. You can expect people to go out of their way to make your life miserable.

But take heart. We have a savior who has walked that path before you so will comfort you and encourage you.

For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5 New International Version

I know, I have been there. I have had to walk away from family and friends and it was very painful.

I have been in jobs where I felt like I was the only person in the world because no one would talk with me because I was not dishonest. When that happens in a bush camp it can be very lonely.

In my agony I cried out to Jehovah and He sent the Holy Spirit who comforted, strengthened and encouraged me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for comforting and encouraging me during my times of persecution for our relationship. I consider it an honor to suffer for Your awesome name. I give thanks in the name of He who suffered all the way to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Does Not Feel so Good.

THE FIRES OF HELL

Run away from sexual immorality [in any form, whether thought or behavior, whether visual or written]. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the one who is sexually immoral sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have read numerous times of epidemics of super strains of syphilis plaguing societies, especially Britain and the United State and the homosexual community in particular (I wonder: if homosexuality is normal, why is sexual diseases like aids, syphilis and gonorrhea so prevalent in that lifestyle?) . The reason is always the same: sexual promiscuity.

The worlds mantra of if it feels good do it leads to :”it does not feel so good now”. The consequences last a lifetime.

What amazes me now is that even though they know they are infected they use no protection during intercourse with others thus spreading the disease. That is so selfish and immoral.

To the world chastity is old fashioned.

My reply is that yes it is old fashioned. Jehovah is older than we can ever imagine but His words still ring true down through the ages.

The worlds “enlightenment” always leads to disaster but following Jehovahs way, even though it is difficult in this perverted world, always leads to what is best for us.

Really, the “new enlightenment” is nothing “new”. It goes all the way back to Adam and Eve who thought that picking the forbidden fruit would bring them enlightenment only to bring about a disaster which has plagued the world all the way up to today.

Satans “enlightenment” leads to a dark to torturous hell while Jehovahs light leads to a bright Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) enlighten my every step to continuously walk in Thy true light because it is the light of life. I sincerely request this in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Spare the rod?

OBEY GODS WORD

 I think a better way to say this is :To spare the rod the child will mock you.         

 How many parents laugh at the naughty deeds of a child when they should be disciplined?

Indeed there is a certain TV show that shows home made video’s. Oh how many times I have seen a child throw a temper tantrum (especially because they did not get the present they demanded for Christmas). The idiot parents sit there and laugh instead of disciplining the child.                                                      

How many parents are guilty of pampering their offspring and giving them everything they demand without making them work for it How are they going to discipline themselves when they become adults if the parents do not teach it to them when they are children                                                           

When they become teenagers and are nothing but continuous trouble for you and then you waked up for the need for discipline they will mock you.                                                                 

Then when the child grows into an adult they wail and wonder their children are so demanding, so ungrateful and so selfish.                                             

From my experience this is a sin for which the mothers and grandmothers are the worst offenders.   

When I was a teacher the first rule taught and enforced was respect. Both respect for the teacher and the teacher respecting the child. The majority of my children became well behaved and respectful. And, they loved their teacher for doing that for them.    

Parents, you are a disgrace if you do not discipline your children and the crops you sow from this damming negligence will be nothing but heartache and misery. By not disciplining them you are guilty of leading them down the road to Hell much more that Satan is.                                                              

A life without discipline is a life of misery. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) to teach me and when necessary discipline me so that I may always be an obedient child of Yours. I gratefully praise You for this treasured gift in the name of the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Reliable and Trustworthy.

 

The law of the Lord is perfect (flawless), restoring and refreshing the soul; The statutes of the Lord are reliable and trustworthy, making wise the simple. Psalm 19:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In mans laws there is so many escape clauses for the wicked. Everyone is equal under Gods Law. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Sadly we see all too frequently that there seems to be one law for the rich and one law for everybody else. We see too much of liberals allowing criminals to go free in society to habitually continue there evil ways. It angers us and breaks our hearts.

In Jehovahs Law there is no escape clauses and those that break His law face His divine punishment. There is no plea bargaining nor parole.

Oh we are forgiven when we repent but must still face the punishment. It is fair and just. That restores our faith in true justice and refreshes our spirits.

Do not think that His justice will be done right away.

Sometimes it takes decades.

I have seen it in the lives of many and their pitiful existence in their own damnation. It breaks the heart to see them suffer but also faith that justice is being served.

The precepts of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. Psalm 19:7,8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Obeying Jehovahs Law brings peace, love and joy to the heart. Obeying your own law only brings misery, agony and war to the heart. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We receive more enlightenment of Jehovahs Law the more we obey Him. It brings joy to our hearts because we see a loving Father that only wants what is best for us. Many times we are selfish but when we are obedient unto His laws we see the destructive lifestyle we avoid when going down that destructive path. We see that His way is the only way.

A knowledge of the Bible without a college education is more valuable than a college education without the Bible.” Professor William Lyon Phelps

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with a Divine education in Your Holy School of Righteousness. Thank you with blessing me with the strength to implement Your teachings into my daily life. It has prevented much hardship and sorrow. I exalt Thee in the King of Righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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