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

They are Easy Prey

christ defeats demons

And he who turns away from evil makes himself a prey. Now the Lord saw it, And it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man And was amazed that there was no one to intercede [on behalf of truth and right]; Therefore His own arm brought salvation to Him,
And His own righteousness sustained Him.  
Isaiah 59:15-16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it states that Christian babies are easy pray for Satan. I know this to be true from personal experience.

Shortly after the baptism of the Holy Spirit a experience came where I thought I was stronger and smarter that satan and he whipped my butt and shoved my nose in it when he easily defeated me. When the Lord decided that satan had gloated enough He stepped in and reassured me that when I repent I was forgiven and to remember my lesson. Which, I have to this day.

That is why it is of the utmost importance for us more mature Christians to come along side of the weaker ones and share our testimonies with them so they do not lose heart. It is just as important that we pray for them as that is one of our most important weapons to defeat our hated foe ( satan and his henchmen).

We who have experience are duty bound to share it with the inexperienced to help prevent them from suffering the same shame and pain as we did. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for teaching me how to conquer satan when he attacks and how to gain forgiveness when I repent whenever I fall. May I be blessed with passing this encouragement and wisdom on to those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am. May I be receptive to those teachers who are more advanced than I to their guidance. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the best Teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Certainly Don’t Recommend

GODS DELIGHTS

The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Psalms 25:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you want to live an easy comfortable life do not become a Christian.

A Christians life can be expected to be one filled with sorrow, pain, hardship and loneliness.

You will be filled with sorrow at the ones who reject Christ (especially those in your maternal family) and by extension ostracize you. You will not be invited to family get togethers, weddings, funerals or anniversaries. It will cut deep.

You will suffer pain of never being invited to get togethers by those you work with. You will be treated like a freak and mocked.

You will suffer loneliness as Christ takes you away from comforts of this life into service for Him. You will feel as if you are the only person in the world because everyone around you rejects you mocks you and ostracizes you. It will cost you your family, your friends, your career, maybe your health, your financial security.

You will face hardship because of what you have to surrender unto Christ (in the beginning of your walk you will not be sure if He will supply your needs).

If this sounds like to heavy of a price to pay let us look at the rewards:

You can be sure that no matter the family and friends who reject you Christ will bring to you a Christian communion that will be closer than any maternal family member or worldly friend.

No matter recession or physical injury or anything that hampers you finances Christ will always make sure you have a comfortable place to live, clothes on your back and food in your belly.

In your hardship it will bring you ever closer to Christ which will expand your love, admiration, trust and friendship with Him, which is the best treasure of them all.

It is not: is it worth giving up everything to become a Christian but rather why in the world would I desire anything but Christ in my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  “I didn’t go to religion to make me ‘happy.’ I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to endure and prosper (yes prosper because the prosperity is in the enlargement of our eternal love affair) during my suffering because of my association with You. I exalt You in the name of He gladly enduring the most horrible suffering for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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.

The Highlands of Affliction.

CHRISTS STRENGTH

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version  

Those who say that being a Christian is easy are definitely not a Christian.

Being a Christian means a lifetime of suffering. We will be rejected, mocked and be going through constant trials and tribulations.

This is good because it makes us dependent upon Jehovah which draws us ever closer unto Him.

As well, it strengthens our Christian walk.

It is also good because when we encounter hurting folks we can share with them the amazing things Jehovah has done through our tough times.

The other benefit is that we will not desire for this world but rather for the home in which our Heavenly Father has prepared for us.

“The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to make through the tough times and for using those tough times to strengthen Your loving child and well as the life changing lessons learned through these fiery times. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered the worst affliction for 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.

Will Guard Your

do not be afraid

 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have known a lot of war in my life.

The war of worry.

This plagues me with restless nights, bad health and nervous disposition. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that everything is in His hands and that everything will work out for my good

The war of fear.

This battle leaves me timid and restless. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that everything is in His hands and that He will always supply for my needs.

The war of anger and hatred (this includes jealousy).

This war boils the brain so it cannot function properly. It steals all joy and love from my soul. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that the important thing to stay focused on is that those who unjustly inflict pain or sorrow on me shall be punished by His vengeful hand.

The war of loneliness.

The feeling of being unloved and all alone. A feeling so heavy it causes physical pain in my heart and great sobbing. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that the important thing to stay focused on is that He loves me with a love that no other can compare with. That He is always with me and has a house built with love awaiting me in His Heavenly home.

The best security system there ever can be is the one wrapped up in Jehovahs loving arms. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for providing me with the weapons to defeat satan in his battle against my mind and spirit. This unbeatable weapon of course is You Holy Love. I praise You in the name of my most precious lover Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You are a Stubborn Fool.

CALMS THE STORMS

For the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel has said this, “In returning [to Me] and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and confident trust is your strength.” But you were not willing Isaiah 30:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

So many times when in stress, pain and uncertainty Jehovah is gracious and comes to us offering relief. To receive this relief we must obey His guidance and trust Him.

Instead too many are dim witted and arrogantly tell Jehovah that they can handle the situation themselves (which they know they cannot because it has them stressed out. Too many laugh at Jehovahs guidance and believe their idiotic plans are superior to Him. Not only does their plans fail but their stress level sky rockets until they crash and burn. Then, they go and cry baby to Jehovah about how bad of a God he was because He refused to help them. Oh, the stupidity of it all.

Notice, if you will, that this passage is concerning those of Jehovahs family. They of all souls should know better so they are even bigger idiots. It happens to us all but the wise learn from this and change both their attitude and their actions.

When you refuse to come unto  and obey Jehovah you are a stubborn fool of which there is nothing to compare. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I wish there was some manner in which I could comfort You Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for when the fools pierce Your heart with grief because they arrogantly refuse to accept Your guidance in the right way of living. I thank You for said guidance and pray that I always listen, understand and obey Your wisdom. I sincerely ask and pray this in the name of the wisest teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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