Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?

EXAMINE YOURSELF
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4   Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                            

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumours, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying. All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offences and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

He is Worthy Of

BE STILL

 Blessed and worthy of praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Think of the one relative that you loved as a child when growing up. When they told you something you trusted them that is was the truth.

How much more is Jehovah worthy of our trust? The longer you have walked with Him the longer the list is (which is why it is important for us more mature in the family to come along beside one not as mature as us and help them by sharing events in our lives where Jehovah has come through for us). Because He has come through for us in the past our obedience unto Him should expand in the present and in the future which is a form of faith in Him. We do this because we have confidence in His providence even though some times it does not make sense to us.

“God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.” Elisabeth Elliot

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to Your numerous promises to me. May I always be a faithful child to You. I give thanks for this blessing and make this vow in the name of Your most faithful son Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.

Be Careful About Them.

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

If anyone thoughtlessly takes an oath to do anything, whether good or evil (in any matter one might carelessly swear about) even though they are unaware of it, but then they learn of it and realize their guilt when anyone becomes aware that they are guilty in any of these matters, they must confess in what way they have sinned. Leviticus 5:3-4 New International Version

As you can see, Jehovah takes all vows seriously.

So if you take a vow, even if you are tricked into it and refuse to honour it, you will pay the price.

This I believe is intended to drive home three points.

One: there is a price to pay for disobedience.

Now if you have taken a vow that is detrimental to society, or Christ, you should break it.

Otherwise the consequences will be more severe. So if a friend has nagged you into keeping a secret of how they cheated on an a deal with another company you should break that vow to do the right thing and report it otherwise when they are caught you will suffer the same punishment at them.

 

The second important thing is to drive home the importance of waiting and seeking council through councilors and prayer to avoid being caught up in these in the first place.

The third one is the one I have been plagued with constantly in China.

Do not make a promise you do not intend to keep.

In China they have a practice of promising you almost anything to get you to do what they want you to do. Once you have done your part they conveniently get amnesia and forget their promises (which in reality they had no intention of keeping in the first place).

This has taught me a valuable lesson.

Now when someone wants me to do something for them and they make extravagant promises I inform them loudly in public that because I want them to prove to everyone how honest they are I will give them the honour of fulfilling their promises first.

It greatly shames them.

Every time I see them I loudly ask them when they are going to fulfill their promises.

This is done as a warning to those who are watching and listening so they do not attempt this filth on me.

It has eliminated a lot of stress in my life and a lot less being made a sucker out of.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always depend upon Your Holy Spirits voice to guide me on when to and when not to make promises because they are oh so very serious to You. I know this voice will prevent me from making foolish promises or unattainable promises. I sincerely request this in the name of He who promised to always be with me and has kept His promise Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Will Care for Us When.

A LOST LITTLE GIRL

Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you. Isaiah 46:4 New King James Version

I have previously written an article about this so please have patience while I reiterate again.

 

If you invest in retirement plans they can go bankrupt or for some financial reason fail you.

Serving the Lord seldom brings financial security from my experience.

Your health eventually fails you.

The one who will never fail you is Jehovah. You are His beloved children and when you place your life and faith in Him, He promises to never leave you nor forsake you. He never lies and never goes back on His promises.

That does not mean you will retire in a condo somewhere and sip pina conatas ob the beach.

 

It does mean you will live in peace and security knowing He is taking care of you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emanah (God is faithful) for promising to take good care of me in my old age. It brings peace and comfort to my soul. I thank you in the name of He who cared for all He came in contact with as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

How is Your Account?

Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it Psalm 34:13-14 New King James Version

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 

Do you sacrifice honesty for brown nosing just to impress a teacher or boss? In the end will they not domineer you and treat you like dirt?
Do you promise much and give little to get your way?

When I was in China they would make promises to do grand things for me if I would first do what they wanted me to do for them. After I had completed the task they would laugh and swear straight faced they never made the promise (even when it was put in writing). As a result I would allow them to make the grand promises and then promise to do what they asked AFTER they had done as they promised FIRST, which of course they never did. They would look at me with hate because they knew they could not get away with their filthy lies and conniving.

Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles. Proverbs 21:23 New King James Version
When you depend upon the Holy Spirit to guide your words you do not have to be concerned about them coming back to bite you.

Everyone will have to give account on the Day of Judgment for every empty word they have spoken.  For by your words you
will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”” Matthew 12:36-37 New International Version

Does this sound like judgment you dread or accolades you will humbly accept? What will be in your account on judgment day?

I read Peters vision of Hell that liars and those that cause trouble will be hung by their tongue over a river of fire while demons whip them with cat of nine tails. Does that sound like some place you want to spend eternity in?
Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with words of wisdom and grace so as to give honour and praise to Your Holy name. I humbly request this in the name of he whose words were the living waters Jesus Christ. Amen.

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