In Our Service To

So let us not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 The Holy Bible , The New Living Translation

These verses say four important things to me.

The first is not to get tired in our service to our Heavenly King. We all need to take time to spend alone with our loving Father in His Cathedral (another name it is called by is nature ). To go for a walk on a nature trail our to sit by a gentle little rapids or to sit by the shore of a lake and relax. Then , call out to our Heavenly Poppa and ask Him to join us. That is the most beautiful and relaxing thing we can ever do.

Second is that it is in Gods time that we will be rewarded. He always has perfect timing , never too early , never too late.

The third part is that even though most of the time our service is not appreciated by those we are doing the good works for , they are always appreciated by our adoring Heavenly King Jesus.

The fourth point is that we do not give up.

It is when we are closest to victory that satan works his hardest to convince us to give up. If he wins he laughs at God as well as at us. If we persevere he screams in a rage Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense. Job 11:20 ) that even though my service unto You seems like it is all for nothing many times , I have faith that You will always reward Your faithful servant. I thank you in Your gracious name. Amen

May you be blessed with the promise that is written in stone by our Heavenly King that you will be rewarded for your service unto Him Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Would you please pray for Sahil, a Christian in Pakistan that has a Christian school in the slums with protection , resources to guide others to Christ and strength and encouragement to continue on in very difficult circumstances ?

I Say to You, ‘Don’t

“For I hold you by your right hand I , the Lord your God. And I say to you , ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.” Isaiah 41:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

So many times when the dark cloud of fear enveloped me I did the only thing I could do , I got down on my knees and prayed.

Most of the time our Heavenly Poppa would calm my fears but many times He would go through Bible Verses for hours with me cementing it in my feeble mind that He has everything in control and that He has a firm but gentle hold of my frail hand. That even though I cannot see where He is guiding me , He knows where He is leading me for a specific job He desires for me to do for Him. It helps to write them down and talk them over with Jehovah every night before be and first thing every morning.

Even now, there are still times of doubt.

That is when those Bible Verses are pulled out and read to satan and his minions. They quickly leave me alone.

When satan and his minions attack , bring out the only defence you need to defeat them. Prayer Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti ( The Lord my Deliverer Psalm 18:2 ) that You always deliver me from debilitating fear and doubt. You replace it with Your strength and fortitude. I exalt You in the name of He who endured the strength to stay on that horrible cross until the work was done, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you always depend upon the most dependable one to chase away the dark clouds of fear and doubt, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Would you please pray for a sister in Christ that is battling depression while taking care of an abusive mother

Please Jehovah Jehovah Tsori

O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.” 2 Chronicles 20:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength Psalm 19:14 ) help me.

You know my weaknesses and how to strengthen them.

Where I am wavering please send the Holy Spirits strong hand to hold me up. I do not need the worlds feeble efforts to strengthen me when I have Your supreme power with in me.

Please open my eyes to see the wonderful things You are doing in my life and through it.

When the world points its self righteous fingers at me in condemnation, my precious Jesus, show me Your pierced hands to show me Your loving forgiveness when I repent.

I desire nothing of the emptiness the world considers valuable but rather I prefer the riches of Thy precious love.

Please increase my faith every moment of every day. Always remind me to come unto You for strength and wisdom and perseverance. Your way is the way to victory.

May I always follow the path You have chosen for me to walk, no matter how difficult, no matter if I cannot see where it is leading me in the situation I am in. I know it ultimately leads to victory.

It is in the name of my victorious King Jesus Christ that I humbly present this request unto You. Amen

May you always walk hand in hand with the Holy Spirit all the way to our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu

I will be careful to live a blameless life— when will you come to help me? I will lead a life of integrity in my own home. Psalms 101:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

Integrity: adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

To me home represents the heart.

Every day I pray for the Holy Spirit to help me speak and behave like my idol Jesus Christ in all I say and in all I do.

Society says that righteousness is like shifting sand. It is open to interpretation. What is right for you may not be right for me but I will respect your right to live like that. What an idiotic way to have a disfunctioning society, which is what we see today.

A Christian says they will stand upon the principals that Jehovah teaches us through His Word, the Bible. He brings this enlightenment to us through the mentoring of the Holy Spirit.

Now of course satan and by extension society, will try anything to destroy that with temptations of lust, political correctness, which is satanic, and suffering because we will not surrender our Godliness morals.

We of course have an undefeatable super weapon to help us live a victorious Godly life. His name is the Holy Spirit and He is just a call away when we request our Heavenly Poppa sent Him to help us.

But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. 1 Corinthians 2:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

“He said not: “Thou shalt not be tempted: Thou shalt not be travailed:|Thou shalt not be afflicted.”But he said:”Thou shalt not be overcome.”” Julian of Norwich

God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness I Corinthians 1:30 ) for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to mentor me to live a righteous life and the strength and perseverance to do so every day. I praise You in the name of the most Righteous of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plenty of learning opportunities at the feet of the best mentor, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Even Though We Cannot See It.

 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The wonderful thing about being a Christian is that when we are tired and being at the point of throwing up our hands and giving up, the Holy Spirit comes along and blesses us with Divine strength to continue on.

When looking back on my previous troubles, most looked so huge they were going to overwhelm me but through the Holy Spirits help they were solved and they were no where near as they looked at the time.

In going through these troubles we produce glory for Jehovah for His deliverance. Folks see us and think that is it for us and Jehovah rises us from the ashes of defeat to the glory of victory only through His providence. That leaves those in the world completely confused.

We look where we cannot see. We look for Heaven and believe that is our eternal home even though we cannot see it. When we trust Jesus at His word and look forward to a wonderful Heavenly home He has prepared for us and our troubles look so small and insignificant. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful 1 John 1:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:3 ) for being so faithful so as to never leave me nor forsake me. That my life is in Your strong, gentle hands at all times. In reflection I see with You by my side those big problems with nit so big after all. I thank you in the name of He who reassured His disciples during some pretty tough times, 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

I am Surprised Jehovah is So

god is compassionate

 But is [extraordinarily] patient toward you ” 2 Peter 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am surprised Jehovah is so patient with me.

Year after year I make stupid mistakes. Year after year I fight with Him when He asks me to do something I do not want to do.

Year after years I fight with Him when He tells me not to do something I want to do.

Instead of exhaustively shaking His head and says:Oh Joseph,Oh Joseph, Oh Joseph, how long must you be so obstinate?

He says: “ I know you have a heart dedicated to me and that you are a weak fleshling but do not worry I am a patient, loving, forgiving Father. I know you are a good son whose ultimate desire is to love and obey me. Just keep trying son, we are walking this life together through both your failures and your victories.”

Our ground of hope is that God does not weary of mankind.” — Ralph W. Sockman

Oh wow, what a truly awesome God I love. I deeply desire to be like Him towards others as He is towards me.

Don’t you?

“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.” — John Quincy Adams

Prayer: Oh praise You my Beloved Jehovah EL RACHUM (Jehovah is a Merciful God ) Jehovah EL NASA (Forgiving God) for being so merciful and patient with this difficult child of Yours. Please bless me with the same mercy and love towards others todays as You have towards me every day. I humbly beseech You in the name of He whose great love for me lead Him to patiently endure the torturous cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

He Who Has a Head of Wax

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.

The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.

Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).

Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me).  Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).

Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).

Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Those who have a head of wax must not walk out in the sun (know your weaknesses) Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.

Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.

Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.

I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses 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

Because of Them.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

 I thank God, whom I worship and serve. 2 Timothy 1:3 Amplified Bible

We all know that Paul suffered a lot during his ministry and I believe all true ministers (we do not have to go through seminary school to be ministers) of Christ do as well. I believe this is done on purpose.

The purpose of it is when any accuser steps forward and asks us what do we know of suffering we can give life experiences.

As well, who better to reach the suffering than those who have walked the path before them.

Faith is realizing that I am useful to God not in spite of my scars but because of them. –Pamela Reeve

It is said that a drunk that desires to be free of alcoholism will listen to an ex alcoholic before he listens to someone with a degree on the wall.

So, even though we may not enjoy our trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares whilst enduring them, please look at the big picture: Chances are, Jehovah is using this experience now to prepare you to use it to help others some where, some time in the future and that through this you may be the catalyst that brings a lost soul to Christ.

There is nothing anybody else can do that can stop God from using us. We can turn everything into a testimony. Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsori – Lord my Strength for blessing me with Your divine strength to endure the suffering and pain that is inflicted upon on Your faithful servants. I praise You in the name of He who endured six hours of agony on the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Shall We not Accept Adversity?

I TRUST GOD

 Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” Job 2:10 Holy Bible, New King James Version                                                                                  Sorry to bust the bubble of those who believe Jesus is a genie who only live to give us our hearts desires but when you are a true Christian expect to experience a lot of adversity in your walk to Heaven.                                                                                                                                                                                                               “Persecution for righteousness’ sake is what every child of God must expect.” Charles Simeon That however is a blessing not a curse.                                                                                                                                                                                                                        You see in my life this is the pattern that has been with me since my walk to Heaven began: The closer you get to Jehovah the more satan is going to torment you and persecute you in the belief that you will be weak and the suffering too strong and give up your walk with Christ.                                                                                                      That is partly true.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 We are weaker than satan but nothing or no one is stronger that Christ. So when persecution and hard times come it drives a Christian to our knees in prayer to Christ. He will abundantly supply us with the power to overcome. That in turn creates a heart that overflows with love and respect for Jesus which draws us closer to Him.                                The closer we get to Christ the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                       When I was in Asia and informed Christians there that I was a Christian the first question they asked was:” How much have you suffered for Christ?”                            Returning to the west it is sad to say that the majority of so called Christians I have met are marshmallow Christians. They want the blessings of Christ but are not prepared to endure the sufferings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         “The early church was married to poverty, prisons and persecutions. Today, the church is married to prosperity, personality, and popularity Leonard Ravenhill                Although I do not enjoy the suffering I am eternally grateful for them because it is through them that I have been blessed with a close intimacy with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit that could not and would not have occurred any other way.                                                                                                                                                           Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your divine strength, comfort and peace during the times of satanic attack by his wicked disciples. I praise You in the name of He who defeated satan in the empty grave Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                                                                                                            May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Only if You Let It.

calms-the-storms

 

 THOU wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee. Holy Bible , American Standard Version

I am a caregiver for my elderly mother. She is extremely stubborn and independent. Because of health reasons she has lost a lot of her independence. This causes a lot of friction between us. Many times I feel like I am going to explode and I have to get away from her. The only thing to calm me down is a cigarette. As well she is stubborn and refuses to listen to listen to anyone. She is right and the whole world is wrong (even though she does not know what she is talking about). Then when things go south she always blames everyone but herself. I go almost a month without smoking and then she gets into one of her moods and look out. Then I need a cigarette and we do not talk with each other for a few days.

This has been going on for three years. Each time I prayed for wisdom on how to handle her and then read an article on how a man was stressed out and was told that the reason for his stress was because only if you let it stress you out it will.

Now that sounds reasonable but then how do you handle the situation?

Later while reading the Bible this verse suck out to me: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee. Holy Bible , American Standard Version

It makes perfect sense.

When stress comes I remove myself from the situation and allow it to drive me to my knees where I belong in prayer.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge for blessing me with the privilege of entering into Your holy sanctuary where You bless me with peace, healing, comfort and fortitude to carry on in my duties (duty is an act of love) to You and my mother. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cleavet After a year and a half mom has now settled down and our relationship has improved tremendously. She has even begun to go to church again for the first time in about forty years. The lord has taught me how to deal with stress. Mom has not smoked in about a year and I rarely smoke now (I am confident one day my Lord will permanently smash this chain of addiction)
