With Those Who Created It

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Psalm 19:1The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I do not know which place I love to sit with my Beloved Poppa, Jehovah, my most special friend, Jesus and my most amazing mentor, The Holy Spirit.

Have you ever laid in a tent in the desert at night when there is not a sound? The stars look so close it feels as if you can reach up and touch them.

Have you ever sat on the shore of an ocean and looked at the stars? It looks as if the night sky, the stars and the ocean all melt into one. It is an incredible sight to witness.

Have you ever sat in the forest at night in the winter when there is not a sound to be heard and gaze up into the night sky a been mesmerized by the stars incredible beauty? The only word I can ever say to describe it is Wow.

The thing that makes each of these majestic creations to awesome is that they are being share with the ones I love the most: Jehovah, Jesus and The Holy Spirit. It is the most loving, extraordinary escapade I have ever had.

I do not know which place I love to sit with my Beloved Poppa, Jehovah, my most special friend, Jesus and my most amazing mentor, The Holy Spirit but I do know that they are what makes it so special.

“The most universally awesome experience that mankind knows is to stand alone on a clear night and look at the stars.” J. I. Packer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for blessing me with so many opportunities to share special time with you in Your special places. I praise You in the name of He with whom I love to share time with in Your wonderful creation, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share in the wondrous beauty of the night sky with those who created it and that love you more than you can ever imagine. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Wonderful Secret Places

“My love speaks and says to me, ‘Get up, my love, my beautiful one, and come with me. For see, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. The flowers are coming through the ground. The time for singing has come. The voice of the turtle-dove has been heard in our land. The fig tree has its fruits. The flowers on the vines spread their sweet smell. Get up, my love, my beautiful one, and come with me! O my dove, hidden in the rock, in the secret place in the mountain-side, let me see you. Let me hear your voice. For your voice is sweet, and you are beautiful. Song of Solomon 2:10-14 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Prayer: Thank you my cherished Father Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with so many wonderful secret places in Your creation where the two of us can be alone while drinking in the beauty and wonder of Your creation.

It is here that we share the most intimate conversations.

It is here that we are the closest.

It is here with You that I experience the closest thing in Heaven except the real thing.

I thank You for this treasured gift in the name of He who was there when it was created 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

Thank You Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL

We saw his majestic splendor with our own eyes 2 Peter 1:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have seen it many times, have you?

The Bible says that Jehovah reveals His splendor through nature.

Here are a few tips to experience it.

To begin with, ask Him to reveal Himself to you. The best times to experience Jehovahs glory is at sunrise and sunset.

Find a nice quiet place, that is safe, relax and enjoy the scenery. When you do, He will open your eyes to His awesome majesty.

Watch a snowfall as each individual snowflake preforms a delicate ballet to the ground, then watch as they all wonderfully choreograph together.

Ask Jehovah to take you to a place where He wants you to experience His beauty, then go there, relax and enjoy the show. It is most certainly better than anything on TV, or in the movies or any computer games.

Nature is Jehovahs beautiful gift to us to reveal His splendor and majesty to us. It is the best place to be bless with a close intimate conversation with Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy John 15:11 ) for blessing me with the greatest gift that can be shared, spending time with You in Your beautiful creation. I love all the beauty, majesty, and choreography You show my in the simplest yet most exquisite creations. As well, I cherish the time spent with You. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I love to walk with in Your creation, Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Good That Goes with Bad.

 The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will put their trust in You. For You, O Lord, have never left alone those who look for You. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is always good that goes with bad.

Look at the virus that is snaking around the world right now. Yes it is causing a lot of sickness and death. But, it is also contributing to a lot of good.

Look at how many families are spending time together like they did forty years ago.

Look at how folks are looking out for each other in their communities.

Look at how folks are coming together in creative ways in their church to keep together.

Look at how many folks are having time to read their Bibles, for some, maybe the first time in their life.

Look at how many folks are taking walks on nature trails which is good for their mental, physical and spiritual health.

And, most important of all is look at how many folks are spending quality time with Jehovah, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

It is in the difficult times we come the closest to Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for walking with me through these difficult times.                                                                                                                            May you use me to encourage others and help others under Your guidence as You have helped and encouraged me.                                                                                                                                                I apologize that it took at catastrophe like this for me to come and spend time with You.                             I thank you in the name of He who always fulfills His promise to never leave me nor desert me, Jesus Christ. Amen         

    JEHOVAHS CARE                                                                                                                                                                The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

We are Still Stewards

 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. Genesis 2:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Now, even though we are not in the Garden of Eden we are still stewards of Jehovahs creation.

One day early this spring while riding my bicycle down a country road the Lord guided my attention to how filthy the side of the road was and reminded me that as a Christian I am a caretaker of Jehovahs creation. He inspired me to go midweek with some garbage bags and start to clean up all the rubbish on the side of the road. It was incredible the amount that was collected in a short distance. I made a commitment to return one day a week and continue down the road until it was all cleaned up.

You must not defile the land where you live, for I live there myself. I am the Lord, who lives among the people of Israel.” Numbers 35:34 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

After about a month, it rained out on the scheduled clean up day. A couple of days later when riding down the road to get some supplies for our garden the Lord directed my attention to the side of the road. It was spotless. That means someone or group noticed the work done, how it looked good and how bad the uncleaned part looked. They took the initiative and cleaned it up.

Many times we can lead by example in life with out even realizing it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

LEADERSHIP

You yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Titus 2:7 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28) The LORD Creator for blessing me with helpers to restore some of Your creation to the beauty You created to be. I exalt You in the name of He who will restore all of creation to its original beauty upon His victorious return Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The strong Name of

CHRIST IN ME

The strong Name of Christ be with me, Christ within me,

Christ behind me, Christ before me,

Christ beside me, Christ to win me,

Christ to comfort and restore me.

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,

Christ in hearts of all that love me,

Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

I bind unto myself the Name,

The strong Name of the Trinity;

By invocation of the same.

The Three in One, and One in Three,

Of Whom all nature hath creation,

Eternal Father, Spirit, Word:

Praise to the Lord of my salvation,

Salvation is of Christ the Lord. “St. Patrick’s Breastplate” Protective Prayer

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

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.
