They Know it Too.

 For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it.  They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. Romans 2:13-15 

A question that is frequently asked of us Christians is what about those who have not heard about Jehovah? How can that be fair that He casts them into Hell when they have never heard about Him? How can a loving God do that? That is unfair.

Even those with no education of Christianity know there is a Supreme God by their consciences.

They know it too. After all, who imputes it into their thoughts what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, they will have no excuse when they face Jesus at the Judgment throne.

When you study ancient history every religion points back to the God of creation.

Those that reject Jehovah here, deserve to be rejected by Him in Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Today, society in the west, has become dependent upon electronics and most folks live in a city so they are removed from the wonder of Gods creation (do you think it strange that most of the so called atheists live in the city while most of those with a deep religious conviction live in the boondocks). Those in the city get their perception of nature from perverted minds that teach that animals are like people and that animals can be treated like cute lovable toys (like in the movies). I have seen it with catastrophic results when planting trees every year. They do not have a clue what it is like to live off of the land or how to behave around wild animals. The same goes for hunting. You live on a farm or ranch and see how fast you buy are rifle to protect your crops and or livestock.

The closer you get to nature the closer you get to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for the wonderful honour of You revealing Yourself to me through Your incredible creation. It amazes me and creates a heart and mind that worships and respects You all the more. I praise You in the name of He who was there with You in the beginning Jesus Christ. Amen

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

But by Subtraction

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The more you have, the less happy and contented you are. That is a proven fact.

Most folks are puppets in the hands of big monopolies. They say if you have this you will be happy. Then, they charge you exorbitant amounts of money to purchase their product. Because you cannot afford it, it puts you into debt. Then, next year they come out with a new and improved product and the process it repeated.

If it gets between you and Christ, get rid of it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Going into debt and working long hours only to be exhausted keeps you away from Christ.

Live a simple life, you will be much more contented.

I speak from a lot of experience. I have always lived a simple, frugal lifestyle and for the most part am very contented. I see those I grew up with being very materialistic and are the most miserable folks you ever meet.

For me, my greatest joy, and satisfaction is when sharing a conversation with Jesus. It need not be about my problems (although there is nothing wrong with that but it is not to be the only time you talk with Him). Many times it is when we are walking in His creation (nature) that we just talk about anything and everything like the best friends we are. It is so enjoyable. He opens my eyes to all the beauty around me and how He loves me and takes care of me. I am contented with His daily provision in my life.

I have lived in abundance and in abject poverty but learning to depend upon and be grateful for Jehovahs daily provisions is one of the greatest lessons learned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now I do not worry about where my next meal is coming from nor hoard things. Now I do not foolishly waste His daily provisions but use them wisely as a manner in which to show proper respect and appreciation for my Fathers provisions.

“Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction: seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment. Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied only with Christ brings contentment.” Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for patiently teaching me that my wants will never bring me satisfaction but being content in Your daily provision brings a lot of contentment, peace, appreciation, respect and peace. Next to being blessed with loving communion with You, these are the greatest of gifts You daily bless me with. I am in deep gratitude to You in the name of Your greatest gift to me 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.

It Helps to Remember

VOICE OF GOD

 When the friendship and counsel of God were over my tent. Job 29:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When trouble comes where ya gonna go?

For me it is either in my sanctuary (a winterized tent or in Gods Cathedral (nature) which His Divine Word (the Bible).

It is in these quiet places that I pour my heart out to my beloved big daddy. He patiently listens and then either speaks directly to me in a soft reassuring gentle voice or we have a little Bible study. I cherish both.

It is advisable to bring along a recording device to record what has been said by His immaculate wise voice to be contemplated upon later so that His advice can be more deeply digested and then put into action.

These two places are perfect because it is in the quiet places that we can hear His voice all the more clearer and we can talk all the more intimate with Him.

“On days when life is difficult and I feel overwhelmed, as I do fairly often, it helps to remember in my prayers that all God requires of me is to trust Him and be His friend. I find I can do that.” — Bruce Larson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present and available when I so desperately need to talk with You, my closest confident. Thank you that Your gentle words remind me to always trust You completely because You have everything under control. I praise You in the name of He who had everything under control while with His disciples no matter how much the storm raged 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.

At the Grocery Store.

DANCE FOR JOY

On my morning walk today I went to the grocery store. I did not want to go because it is usually very busy but there was a prodding feeling to go. I was blessed that there was a nice roast on mark down and no line ups at the grocery store. Usually there is at least a twenty minute wait and I hate being in crowds.

From there I felt a prodding to go to the Farmers Market and was blessed that the lady that sells me organic honey had just two jars left which is exactly what I wanted to get. I forgot that I was out of honey until putting the jars away at home.

After that I walked to a discount store at the other end of town and was prodded into going in. I looked at some stores in the mall where the grocery store for a watch and could not find anything less than twenty dollars and refused to pay that much. At the discount store there was a really good one for two dollars in the sports section. While there there was a small but powerful light that can be used in the Tabernacle when it is dark to read and write, again for just two dollars.

Finally, during the last stretch of the five mile walk I stopped for a rest in the park. While resting on a bench these swans came and preformed a beautiful ballet for me while song birds were serenading them. Wow, that was so beautiful of a blessing.

Prayer; Thank you Jehovah (El Deah God of knowledge) for blessing me with the knowledge to go where You were prodding me to go. Being obedient unto You brought such wonderful blessings to me today.

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

Succeed in This Inconceivable Marvel.

God loves each of

 For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense. Romans 1:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever seen anyone that has been touched by Jehovah?

I have.

I have seen drunkards become sober and never touch a drop again. Everything else they attempted to smash the chains of their addiction failed miserably, especially the politically correct that says if you just try hard enough you will succeed. Only Christs power freed them from this horrible slavery. The same can be said of other addictions as well.

I have seen those who were selfish and self centered become very loving, sharing and caring children of Jehovah. Nothing but Christs love could accomplish such a feat.

I have seen shy timid folks become roaring lions for Christ with Divine power and and confidence that astounds those that knew them previously. Nothing but Jehovahs power could accomplish such an impossible feat.

I have seen those that cursed and mocked Jehovahs word now preach it with wisdom and authority that amazes those that knew them previously. Nothing but Jehovahs wisdom could succeed in this inconceivable marvel.

“I believe in God like I believe in the sun rise. Not because I can see it, but because I can see all that it touches.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the numerous ways in which You have touched me in so many aspects of my life. In the way You burned off the dross and the ways in which You have molded me with expert hands. I exalt You in the name of the best potter ever  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

All Humanity Shall See It

 JEHOVAHS COMMUNION

“And the glory and majesty and splendor of the Lord will be revealed,
And all humanity shall see it together; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.” Isaiah 40:5
The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The best place to witness Jehovahs glory is in nature.

To watch a sunrise or sunset by a lake or the ocean you witness His majestic glory.

To lay under the stars (especially in the desert) you witness His awesomeness. To sit in nature and listen to the beautiful symphony of the birds is to witness His joy.

To sit by gentle rapids you witness His peace.

To watch a lightning storm you witness His power.

To experience an earthquake or to experience a typhoon on a ship you witness His incredible strength.

To be surrounded by the Northern Lights you witness His fantastic elegance.

When you are experiencing these events you are enraptured by His infinite love, which is the best witness of all.

“If you want to see God’s power at work, you must get out of the church and into the world. Watch the extravagant lengths which God will go to reveal Himself to people who don’t know Him. Then you will learn how truly awesome our God is.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: All praise and glory unto You oh awesome Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for revealing Your majesty through the wonders of Your creation unto this adoring child of Yours. It is magnificent when we commune together in Your amazing creation. I exalt You in the name of He who I treasure spending time walking and talking with in Your astounding creation 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 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
