So Too is it With

Because I am in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], I am a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

WE MUST LET GO

Have you ever seen them graft one tree into another?

I have always found that fascinating. The grafted part becomes a part of the tree. It depends upon it for sustenance. Indeed, if it was a different species it now becomes a new one.

So too is it with our relationship with Christ.

The moment we accept Him as our Saviour, King and best friend He begins grafting us into one of His own. We depend upon Him for our mental, physical and spiritual health.

The things that once fascinated us soon become repugnant and repulsive to us.

Now, we have become more like Him we have the same disposition as Him and the same fancies.

This is strange to those on the outside and so they mock us. That is to be expected because those on the out side mocked Jesus as well.

The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist of all Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with grafting me into You most beautiful holy family. I thank you in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

He Takes Us Ever Deeper

 As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should! Psalm 119:7 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Righteous: acting in an moral way and virtuous manner ( Moral: founded on the fundamental principles of right conduct rather than on legalities, enactment, or custom, concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical) ( Virtuous: conforming to moral and ethical principles; morally excellent; upright ) Dictionary. com

We are to be grateful for the blessing of being adopted into Jehovahs family. The best manner of doing this is to live as He desires us to be.

To accomplish this we must emulate Christs demeanour. We need the Holy Spirit to teach us morality (although we all know right from wrong in its basics, He takes us ever deeper into it).

follow your ways

As well as the tools to live it out in our daily life.

As this new creation in Christ takes form in our mental, physical and spiritual being we become more and more virtuous.

This is not a one off experience but rather a lifetime commitment.

I have been following Christ for decades and He is still transforming me. We are a work in progress all the way up to Heavens Gate where Christ will perfect us into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now, to the world that walks in darkness, this is extremely offensive. It is great to see someone walk with these qualities as long as they do not step upon that individuals toes.

When you are welcomed into Jehovahs family, you will be bitterly rejected by satans family including your family and old friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Believe me I have had plenty of experience where the very same man or woman that commends me for behavior with another becomes extremely offended and offensive when the same situation happens between them and me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending the Holy Spirit Rabbi (the Holy Spirit my amazing Teacher) for enlightening me to the manner to behave as a child in Your Holy family. Thank You Holy Spirit for teaching me and helping me become the child my Loving Father desires for me to be. In the name of He who I desire the deepest to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

On an Admitted

HIS INSTRUCTION

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16:11 New Living Translation

A presumed fullness is when we brag that we are full and have no need of Jehovah. It is arrogant and is bragging. Beware. What is freely given unto you can and will be freely taken. Then you will end up with nothing. I have seen it oh so many times.

Then, there is the Christian perspective.

We empty our wants and desires for Jehovahs wants and desires. In the process we are blessed with love, purpose and spiritual treasures beyond compare. We may not be wealthy in the worlds eyes but boy are we ever rich in Jehovahs eyes.

“God is more disposed to move on an admitted emptiness than a presumed fullness.” — Tommy Tenn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with the most nutritious feast that is ever freely available to all seeking a fulfilling spiritual, mental and physical life. I praise You in the name of He who fills us daily with His Divine love 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.

For All Live in Family Care Givers

CHRISTS STRENGTH

 Speaking not only from my own experience but from listening to those  who are caring for their elder parents they receive nothing but continuous slaps in the face for their loving care. Then when many of the adult children are mentally and physically exhausted and put the parents into a seniors home the parents cry baby and try to blame the children all the while refusing to take responsibility for their own actions. Add to that that the care givers seldom receive any help from their siblings who are usually leeches. The only time they call the parent is when they want money from them.

It seems to me that the most ungrateful folks are the ones that need the help the most yet abuse those who are helping them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Although this may seem like a curse it is in reality a blessing.

Because, it is in our hard times that we grow the closest to Jehovah and develop the deepest of love, respect and appreciation for Him. Here are some words of encouragement and strength from our loving, caring Father when we feel beaten down by the ungrateful abusive behaviour of those we are helping.

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in. Galatians 6:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.” — Dwight L. Moody

Therefore, those who are ill-treated and suffer in accordance with the will of God must [continue to] do right and commit their souls [for safe-keeping] to the faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 “Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make a way.”

Prayer: Oh Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) I cannot praise You enough for Your wonderful love, strength, provision, comfort, healing, wisdom and encouragement to continue on being obedient unto Your command;If a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible, New International Version. Please comfort those who, because of the selfishness, brutish behaviour and contempt of their aged parents or grand parents towards the care givers they cannot endure the contemptuous behaviour any more and have to put them in a seniors home. Do not allow the wicked parents or grand parents to put a guilt trip on the adult children. It is their own fault they are where they are. I exalt You and humbly beseech You in the name of He who is loving and the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Leads to the Solid Rock

HE LEADS ME

“So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, will be like a wise man [a far-sighted, practical, and sensible man] who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen multi million dollar homes slide down and embankment and drift out to sea in Southern California. The ocean washed away the sandy embankment so there was no solid foundation for the house.

I have seen houses that with stood hurricanes, flood, forest fires and earthquakes. They were built upon solid rock.

So too it is with our spiritual, mental and physical lives. When these are based upon the solid rock of Christ’s teachings they are on solid ground.

You always hear of new health fads (some of which are truly absurd) which in some cases are detrimental to your health. They are constantly changing. Today you are told not to eat a certain food and then tomorrow you are told it is a super food.

Obeying the dietary laws in the Bible is solid health advice to strong physical health on solid rock foundation.

There are constant psychological advice for your lives (sometimes by folks who could use a good psychiatrist). They change like the weather.

But obeying Christ’s advice always leads to the solid rock of mental health. There are always weirdo’s giving ludicrous advice on how to reach nirvana but it is astoundingly flawed.

Obeying Christ spiritual advice puts you on rock solid foundation. Hearing and obeying Jesus gives our mental, physical and spiritual lives a rock solid foundation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ma’oz (Lord my Fortress) for blessing me with the solid rock fortress of guidance and provision to build my house upon Your indestructible foundation. I thank you in the name of He who has laid that foundation for me, my cherished 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

Those Who Represent The.

HEAVENLY STRENGTH

 Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you. Luke 10:19,20   Holy Bible Amplified Version               

I do not believe Christ is referring to the creature but to those who represent the creatures.

So for example, the serpent represents satan while the scorpions represent those whose tongues and hands represent wicked ones out to do you harm.

The harm mentioned is not referring to physical harm but rather spiritual harm. They are out to poison your relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

The wicked ones are out to kill your love for them.

The authority is given by Christ in His name and the power comes through the Holy Spirit.

Because Jesus is the Supreme Power satan and his minions do not have the power to harm us (they can tempt us but never physically, mentally, nor spiritually harm us).

They are constantly around us which is why it is so important to stay close to Christ.

If we stray away from Jesus we are easy pickings for satan and his henchmen. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing this dedicated servant of Your with the necessary tools to defend myself successfully against the serpents and scorpions that come my way through the day. I glorify You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

This is Why There is So Much

LAUGH AT FOOLS

 For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4  The Holy Bible Amplified Version                               

This is why there is so much violence today. Folks try to fight spiritual battle on their own and fail miserably. The demons are far wiser and stronger than we. They know our weaknesses and how to manipulate them to perpetrate evil on those around us. They laugh because they not destroy us but those around us. The idiots of the world (liberals) mock the spiritual world and arrogantly try reason and logic. The demons can easily manipulate these for their own nefarious ends. They easily make fools out of liberals (not that they need any help in that category).

We as Christians have the supreme weapon to defeat the spiritual battle before it manifests itself into the physical one. He is the Holy Spirit. He will not only enlighten us to the demons heinous plans but the power to defeat them in our own lives and sometimes in others.

Concerning others there may be nothing in our arsenal but prayer. Do not take that tool lightly for the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. Do not think for a moment we are not in constant battle against the wicked ones. This is especially true for those that are close to Christ. They will stop at nothing (but the force of the Holy Spirit) to destroy our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Do not worry about this because The Holy Spirit is always with us. That does not mean we can play with the devil and expect the Holy Spirit to rescue us either.

There is a price to pay for foolishness. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defence) for blessing me with the best defensive weapon to defeat the wicked satan and his evil parasites when they attempt to destroy our loving relationship. Thank you for enlightening me to their wicked plans and how to thwart them. I praise You in the name of He who defeated Satan and his henchmen on the cross and the empty tomb 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.

The Longer You Delay.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts and passions. Romans 6:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a gardener I know full well that when a tree see becomes a twig you pull it out immediately. Otherwise, with some tree’s it is almost impossible to remove.

So too it is with sin.

The longer you dwell in the sewer of sin, the more it seeps into the pours of your body and spirit. This is a slow physical and spiritual death.

Now some say I will sin when I am young and sow me wild seeds. Then, I will repent when I get older. They are living a fools dream. I have witnessed a small seed not only germinate in a soul but also this leads to others sins and more and more sins until it completely consumes the man or woman. Just listen to a drug addict and most will share with you how it started out small and was fun. Then it became a cruel slave master. The slave master brought with him other slave masters who were just as unmerciful (more addictions). It becomes a living Hell. It amazes me that most drug addicts prefer this Hell rather than become clean (which is why all the free drug clinics are useless unless the addicted want help).

Almost all of my habitual sins began small and over time became deep rooted in my per sona. It took some serious and painful burning off of the dross by the Holy Spirit to cleanse me of them. We need to be constantly attentive to the Holy Spirits guidance in our lives to avoid these destructive temptations every day.

There are still a few that Jehovah allows to keep me humble and keep me reliant upon Him instead of myself.

“The longer you delay, the more your sin gets strength and rooting. If you cannot bend a twig, how will you be able to bend it when it is a tree?” — Richard Baxter

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for sending the Holy Spirit to help deliver me from poisonous sins which will destroy the Holy Spirit with in me if they are permitted to take root. I praise You in the name of He who yanked out the worlds sins with His blood Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Talk About Arrogant.

 Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive.  And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’  Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there.  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).”’ Luke 12:16-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Talk about arrogant.

This guy takes full credit while giving Jehovah none.

Did the rich man make the land fertile and productive or did Jehovah?

Than should the rich man not have given thanks unto Jehovah and share with the less fortunate as Jehovah shared with him?

Who determines when we die, the rich man or Jehovah?

Than should he not have used his time wisely to store up treasures in Heaven rather that sit on his laurels?

Should he not have given unto his community as Jehovah greatly gave unto him?

Did the rich man celebrate his good fortune with others or did he greedily keep his parties for himself?

Should we not share with others our good fortune as Jehovah as blessed us with them?

How about you?

Do you share in your blessings ,both great and small, with others or do you greedily keep them for yourself?

Do you publicly praise Jehovah for His graciousness towards you or do you brag about it as if it was you who did the accomplishment?

Do you waste your retirement years going on cruises or other luxuries or do you take this opportunity to share your time and wisdom with the younger generation?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with all of the abundant mental, physical and spiritual gifts provided for me on a daily basis.

May these be used as an opportunity to give thanks to You both privately and publicly and to be used to help those in Your family that are in need.

I joyfully give all praise unto You and request this blessing in the name of He who always used His Divine gifts for the benefit of others Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Prayer Knows No

                                                      

For there is no distinction between Jew and Gentile; for the same Lord is Lord over all [of us], and [He is] abounding in riches (blessings) for all who call on Him [in faith and prayer]. Romans 10:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah is colour blind and so are we, His children to be. Do you have someone of a different colour on your prayer list? I do not really know what colour they are on mine because it is not important to me.

Do you have someone on your prayer list from another country and do you let them know you are praying for them and willing to help them any way you can? I do not know how many countries my brothers and sisters live in that I pray for because it is not important to me.

We are to love all in the family of Christ as He loves us.

Prayer knows no boundaries whether physical, racial, or financial. We are all united in the spirit of Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for consecrating me into Your truly inclusive family. Thank you that I can share in the victories and help in the time of need to all brothers and sisters with in Your sanctified family.

I extol Thee in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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