So They Could.

                          

So the Jews surrounded Him and began saying to Him, “How long are You going to keep us in suspense? If You are [really] the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), tell us so plainly and openly.” John 10:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Jewish leaders knew who Jesus was by the words He spoke and what He had done. They were looking to entrap Him so they could crucify Him. The were so wrapped up in religion that they knowingly rejected God. They refused to listen to Him because they are not His sheep.

Too often there are those in power in churches that believe they can do whatever they want with complete impunity. When you try to discuss it with them they become very offensive and try to use Bible verses to entrap you, to shame you and enslave you to their doctrine not Christ’s. These wicked creatures are doing satans work, not Christ’s. They will pay a heavy penalty for it on judgement day. They do more to drive folks away from Christ than towards Him.

I suffered because of these wicked souls when one of my parents was a member of a certain cult in my teenage years. Those that are still alive today are not powerful but weak pitiful souls. Those that have passed on died alone, weak and in a pitiful state.

I have unfortunately met many that can quote from the Bible but refuse to live by it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Magen (The Lord my Shield) for blessing me with Your  impenetrable shield to protect me from the vile attacks of the upsurgers of Your Divine word and for encouraging me when they do occasionally penetrate to my heart in a moment of weakness.

I glorify Thee in the name of He whose shield was too powerful for any of His foes to penetrate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Pray for One Another’s

                                       

Pray for one another’s well-being, contentment, and protection. 1 Peter 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Praying for others is an important part of daily prayer. When we see others in need it is part of our Christian duty (duty is an act of love) to sincerely, continuously pray for them. Do not pray for them once and then forget about it but continually pray form them. It is also good for them to know you are praying for them. As well, ask them how things are going to see how effective your prayer is because in doing so you are reminding them that your prayer is constant because you care about them.

An added benefit is when you see someone who is not a Christian having difficulty and you inform them that you are praying for them. From my experience, they are always shocked. This is a great opportunity to share Jesus with them.

Do not take prayer lightly.

When you are a Christian you have a constant hot line that is never busy to our Heavenly Father and He listens and answers the righteous man or womans prayers.

The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“Prayer has a way of blowing wind into other sails in your life that you might not even be praying about.” Adam Stadtmiller

Prayer: Please El Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with Your supreme knowledge of who to include in my daily morning prayers so that they will be used to the best effect. I humbly request this in the name of He who taught His disciples to proper manner in which to seek Thy favour Jesus Christ. Amen May

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

Let Him Do the Holding

                                             

 ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the hardest parts of becoming a Christian for me was letting go and allowing Jehovah to take control. I am glad that I have finally succumb. After all, He is far wiser than I, has much more resources to deal with circumstances than I and has all power.

The end result is a life with a lot less stress, grief, frustration, worry and fear in my life.

Why not give it a try?

Why not reach out your hand and say: “ Lord please take my hand and guide me through these stormy waters.” ?

“Don’t trust to hold God’s hand; let Him hold yours. Let Him do the holding, and you the trusting.” — Hammer William Webb-Peploe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the privilege of being able to always hold Your strong, firm yet gentle hand in my feeble hand as we walk through life together. It is so comforting and encouraging. I praise You in the name of He whose hand guided His beloved disciples so well Jesus Christ. Amen

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

For a Dynamic Spiritual Life

                                                                 

For His divine power has bestowed on us [absolutely] everything necessary for [a dynamic spiritual] life and godliness, through true and personal knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How ya gonna know Him if you spend no time with Him?

In order to get to know Jehovah it is imperative to spend time with Him ever day. The more time we spend in communion with Him (not just whining about gimme, gimme, gimme the more dynamic your spiritual life becomes. It is like high octane for the spirit. The more time you spend with Him the more your disposition and behavior will emulate Him and you live a more godly life.

I have heard so many cry baby that they do not have a deep relationship with Jehovah and do not know why.

When you follow His instruction manual (the Bible)  for a incredible loving relationship with Him you will be amazed at how much He transforms you into a loving child of His in every aspect of your life. As you are transformed more and more into His likeness you will discover your life is a real dynamo.

My heart beats like a dynamo when in the presence of He with whom I am so deeply in love with. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) honour of spending treasured time with You, my best friend Jesus and my Wonderful Councillor the Holy Spirit. It is the most amazing experience there could ever be. I am appreciative for this blessing in the name of my best friend 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

The Difference is That.

                                                         

The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Lord listens to us as every loving Father listens to his children.

The difference is that Jehovahs power and resources are unlimited as is his wisdom.

Earthly loving fathers are limited in what they can do for their children and with their children.

An important part in trusting that your prayers are answered is to make sure that you are a righteous man or woman of Jehovahs family.

To be righteous means that we are to be living in accord with divine or moral law.

If we are unrighteous we have no right to expect anything from Jehovah because we do not deserve anything from Him.

Just as you are ignoring Jehovahs call to be righteous so too does He ignore your prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So, before you ask anything from Jehovah it is important that you ask Him to teach you how to live a righteous life and to help you in that process (yes you will need help because the task is too great to accomplish on your own). Then you will also understand the type of prayers that are most pleasing unto Him.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) bestow upon me the ability to live a righteous life so as to be a delightful child of Yours and teach me in how to pray prayers that are delightful to Your ears. Then the end result of this will be powerful and effective prayers that can be prayed to assist others. I genuinely request this in the name of the greatest Rabbi who taught His disciples to pray prayers that are pleasing unto You 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

Like Circles in the Water.

                                                      

Every day he multiplies lies and violence. Hosea 12:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many that when they were young they had so much going for them. But, they started walking in darkness in a few small things and a little at a time the darkness in them grew larger and larger. At a certain point in time the darkness grew stronger and more powerful until it destroyed them. Now they are pitiful creatures with no hope and no life. They threw it all away.

Every sin starts out small but must be dealt with ruthlessly and immediately or else it spreads like cancer and other sins come in to give it more power over your life.

Do not forget, most forest fires start out as small embers from a campfire or a cigarette but can and do cause massive destruction.

“Sins are like circles in the water when a stone is thrown into it; one produces another. When anger was in Cain’s heart, murder was not far off.” — Philip Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) continue to send the Holy Spirit to protect me from fleshly desires. And, to convict me when I surrender to them as well as provide a means of conquering them through Your mighty power. I humbly request this in the name of He who defeats all demons Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Light Above My Head.

                                         

I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and fulfilled it,” says the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One night while sleeping in the back yard in a tent I was awoken by a blue flame above my head. Thinking the house was on fire I frantically attempted to open the zipper on the tent to get mom out of the house. I was so upset I, at first, did not realize I was vainly attempting to find the zipper on the wrong side of the tent. When I did manage to finally open the tent door and rush outside, there was no flames at all. Confused I crawled back into the tent and promptly fell asleep.

When I woke up the next morning all of my finger tips were tingling, my heart felt as if it was going to burst and my head felt electrified. No, it was not a physical ailment that caused this, I am as strong as a horse.

During morning Bible reading this verse burned into my eyes.

There is concern about what will happen to me when mom passes on to the other side (I am an unpaid caregiver with no savings). Every morning I thank the Lord that even though I do not know what is going to happen, one thing for certain is that He will always take care of me.

In the four years of being a caregiver I have worked tirelessly fixing this place up by myself. The only help the rest of the family is, is when they help themselves to moms money every month. They never come down to help and only call when they want money.

One day after crying out to the Lord about the unfairness of it all, He directed me to go sit out on a trail with my Bible. He spent three hours with verse after verse educating me that the wicked shall lose their inheritance and the righteous shall inherit theirs. I kept on replying that I know my inheritance is in Heaven and that is all I want but it would be nice to have some help from the rest of the family in caring for mom. Finally I have taken the attitude that I get what can be done done and not stress out or work myself into exhaustion attempting to do all the work myself.

This verse seems to be His word pounding into my thick skull that all the work I have done is not for someone else (the wicked family) to profit from (because of the beautification of the property the house has increased in value, which I do not care about but they do because it means they get more money from the inheritance). I shall dwell upon this land in peace, love, joy and security because Jehovah says so and He never lies.

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. Because I know, I KNOW, He holds the future, And life is worth the living just because He lives.” Bill & Gloria Gaither

For I have taken all this to heart, exploring and examining it all, how the righteous (those in right standing with God) and the wise and their deeds are in the hands of God. Ecclesiastes 9: 1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you are serving the Lord and are concerned about anything I pray this article has blessed you with strength, confidence, peace and joy.

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with Your Divine provision through out all of my life. Thank you for promising me a wonderful retirement plan which surpasses anything the world can offer. I exalt Thee in the name of He who will greet me in Your greatest retirement Home every conceived Jesus Christ. Amen

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