Are You Willing to Die to Live?

 

CHRISTIAN SCARSI have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.Galatians 2:20 New Living Translation

To gain a fantastic life we must first sacrifice a worthless one. When we become Christians we are to sacrifice the old life for the Christian life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Notice the word SACRIFICE.

This usually, but not always, entails a very painful experience.

It is usually very difficult to give up your old life. Many times it will mean walking away from bad habits and friends, indeed, maybe even family.

During this painful and trying time do not worry; Jesus is right there with you. Call out to Him and He will send His Spirit helper, The Holy Spirit to strengthen you, comfort you and encourage you.

When you come out the other end of your walk through that fiery hell, you will experience joy, peace, contentment and know you are loved like never before. You will be close to our great Emmanuel (God amongst us) and will feel such a close bond with Him the pain experienced in your walk through hell will seem trivial in comparison to the peace, joy and contentment in the loving arms of Jesus.

“The sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Rom. 8:18). New living Translation

As well read Psalms 23 for encouragement.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hossanha (The Lord our Maker) for crucifying my self to be given the priceless gift of life with Christ. In His lovely name we give thanks. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Ask Them If

 

WISDOM LASTS AND ETERNITYHe who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13:24, New International Version

Now we need to understand this.

When children are young, they will push the limits to see what they can get away with.

First they must be warned such behavior is bad and explain why it is bad. Please do not just tell them it is bad or they must do it because you said so. Take the time to explain why they must do this or must not do that. It is even better when you share with them your personal experience so it makes it more real to them.

If they continue to push the envelope they must receive corporal punishment. One good swat will suffice most of the time or taking away a privilege like no mobile phone for a week.

Then sent to a quiet place to contemplate what they have done for about ten minutes. .

After that go sit down beside them. Hug them. Tell them you love them and it really hurt you to do what you had to do. Ask them if they understand. Usually they do. If they do, not try another way to explain it to them.

This is the method my mom used with us kids and I have used with children many times (being a teacher they were not my students but I loved them as if they were my own children). I speak from experience when I say they will love and respect you for it.

After that when they are naughty all I have to do is raise my voice in a firm controlled way to tell them to stop it and they instantly stop. Not out of fear, but rather out of love.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Please Jehovah Abba (God my Father) bless me to emulate You in the same manner in which You wisely teach Your children. I deeply desire them to be a blessing upon this earth not a curse. I humbly request this in the name of my big brother 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

I was Convicted

delightful panoramic water dance

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Recently I was convicted while reading a morning devotional. The Holy Spirit convicted me that the words of my mouth did not match the meditation of my heart. Someone was terribly abusive to me and I said some very unchristian words in anger and frustration (the abuser did not care that her actions caused me great physical pain).

I promptly repented and even though she is still abusive my meditations with my Beloved are in love again.

It does not matter how much anyone is physically and or mentally abusive to me. All that matters is my loving obedient relationship with my Heavenly Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always keep my focus on our loving relationship no matter how abusive those around me are. It is the anchor that hows me close to You in those horrible storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who calmed the violent storm on the seas for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Here is The

GODS HELP

 

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is the meaning of life

. Jehovah places a desire within you to serve Him in a specific manner. He sends the best Guidance Councillor there is to help us, The Holy Spirit. This is not just for teenagers but for everyone at every stage of life.

From a lot of personal experience I can tell you that it is going to be difficult, sometimes impossible to obey.

That is good because it teaches you to depend upon Him for the resources necessary to accomplish the task.

It is going to be painful but that is good because it helps you depend upon Him for the strength necessary to succeed at the task. Then end result of course is it draws you ever closer to Him in a loving obedient relationship.

Jesus is the only one that blesses me with meaning in life, both here and now and in eternity in our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) Psalm 23 for providing me with meaning in my life through Your Divine leading. I exalt You in Your glorious name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Stop Before A

do not allow them to control you

  Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before a dispute breaks out. Proverbs 17:14 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Have you ever watched water gush over a dam? Imagine standing under its power. It would be extremely stupid and devastating.

In every relationship there are sore points and unresolved issues. When these sore points are brought up it is opening the flood gates of hurt and pain. Instead of bringing them up whenever you cannot get your own way the most important thing to do is pray for resolution, preferably with a Christian Councillor.

Most times the guilty party refuses to go into counseling, most times it is because of pride. One they do not want to admit they were wrong and two they do not want to take responsibility for their actions and three the injured soul does not want to let go of the hurt, they use it like a crutch and they use it to manipulate.

When the other party begins to go on this stupid wheel of destruction, it does cause deep cuts with the words that are said in the heated battle, just inform them that if they wish to continue the discussion we will do so in a Christian councilors office. If you refuse to do so it is an admission of guilt on your behalf. When you are mature enough and ready for reconciliation let me know and we will go to the Christian councilors office. Other wise this discussion is over. Then just walk away. It works wonders for me.

If you value a relationship, you must be willing to go into counseling. If it is not important enough for you to go into counseling, then this relationship is over. This prevents a lot of unnecessary trouble in our lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with the knowledge to know when to shut up, when to pray for words of healing and reconciliation and when to seek out good Christian councilors when in a dispute. I sincerely request this in the name of He who knew when to speak and the right words to say 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

That I Encountered Jesus.

GOD IS WITH US

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”John 16:33 New Living Translation Bible

Although being a Christian for many decades it was not until I endured my crucifixion (We all worship something equal to or more that Christ, in order to be used by Christ this must be crucified. I do not take that lightly. It is the most horrible and excruciating pain and agony you will ever experience. But, on the other side of it you will thank Jehovah for it every day. I do) that I encountered Jesus.

It was during a church service and there was a brilliant light that completely encompassed me. A voice came out of the light and assured me: “I love you and am with you always. I will never leave you nor forsake you. “ There was a washing, like being under a cool waterfall on a blistering hot day of all the pain, hurt, and anguish completely away. It was the most refreshing and cleansing experience ever experienced. That encounter changed my life forever and shall never forget it.

Yes, I had been blessed countless times with the Holy Spirits guidance and strengthening, comforting and encouraging and still am BUT, that could never compare with the encounter with Jesus. I greatly appreciated and still do, the Holy Communion with the Holy Spirit but the encounter with Jesus was WOW.

 “One encounter with Jesus Christ is enough to change you, instantly, forever.” — Luis Palau

Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the amazing privilege of encountering You so many times. Each encounter leaves me desiring to never leave Your presence.

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

Does Not Give Us

 The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Psalm 32 : 8 Holy Bible New Living Translation

I have learned the hard way that going my way leads to disaster, going Jehovahs way always leads to success. It took me many decades to learn this. That does not mean it will be easy. As a matter of a fact, it will be very difficult. That is good because it brings us closer to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

He has promised His guidance is the only true way to go. I know this to be true. Along the way He always provides just the right amount for success.

Why give more than is required, it will only go to waste like the manna in the desert with the Israelis with Moses. He has promised He will never leave us nor forsake us. I know this to be true.

God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill all His promises . . . leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with allowing me to travel down paths that led only to unfulfillment, pain and sorrow. It was necessary to bring me onto the path to the most fabulous love affair there could ever be, that between You and me. Thank you for leading me into Your loving eternal arms. In the deepest gratitude from this adoring child of Your, thank you in the name of He who is always with me Jesus Christ. Amen

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