Have You Noticed How Much

 Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life-joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Luke 6:22 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you noticed how much hate there is in the western world today for those that live Christian lives with Christian morals? We are vilified on social media and socially isolated in every day life. It is like we have some disgusting plague like leprosy. What is truly heartbreaking is when this happens with in the Christian community.

Why do folks hate us so much?

Could it be that seeing us pricks their conscience and they know their lifestyle is wrong?

Could it be that seeing us causes the fire of hate to flame in every molecule of their body and mind because they know that their lifestyle is condemning them to Hell?

From my experience yes, those are the two main reasons for their unjustified hate of those of us that are obedient children of Jehovah.

The further society gets from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it. George Orwell.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emet (God of truth) bless me to always speak Your words of truth with wisdom, grace, meekness and fortitude to not back down when challenged by the wicked ones. I sincerely request this in the name of He who is the epitome of truth 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.

Study this Book of Instruction

 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. Joshua 1:8 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is imperative that we feast upon Jehovahs guidebook of life in order to be obedient unto His instruction for our lives.

It guides us to succeed in relationships whether they be personal or corporate.

It guides us in how to invest our time and resources properly.

It guides us in our relationship with our Heavenly Love.

It guides us in the proper diet, exercise and manner of rest.

And, of course we require the Holy Spirit to interpret it for us because we are limited by our mental capacities to understand the Spiritual wealth that is hidden from the world that lies with in its pages. We will never learn of all the wisdom contained in its pages no matter how long we study it.

“‘Thinking Christianity’ is thinking by Christians about anything and everything in a consistently Christian way — in a manner that is shaped, directed, and restrained by the truth of God’s Word and God’s Spirit.” — Os Guinness

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for instructing me in the proper conduct that pleases You. As, well, it makes my life so full of integrity, meaning and purpose. I exalt You in the name of He whose words are the true word of truth 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

Even He Takes a Day Off

HIS REST

 For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world. Hebrews 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Jehovah did not need to rest after completing creating the universe. Like every good father, He leads by example. So, if it was important enough for Jehovah to rest, do you not believe, it was important enough for you to rest?

As well, He gave Himself certain tasks to be completed each day of creation. When the task was completed, He rested. Do you not believe that you should allow Him to dictate how much work you are going to complete in a day rather that your boss or yourself?

Jehovah is a busy God. He is holding the universe together, helping His children and preparing a Heavenly home for us. Yet, even He takes a day off to rest (to lead by example the need for rest, not that He needs one). Joseph a son of Jehovah                     

Are we too busy to take a rest?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Reliqua autem Deus (God of rest) for blessing me with a special day to rest. It refreshes my body, mind and spirit. I praise You in the name of He whom I love to share that day of rest with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

In His time, In His Way.

NOT TRY, TRUST

Be still before the Lord; wait patiently for Him and entrust yourself to Him. Do not fret; it leads only to evil. Psalm 37:7-8 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

When Jehovah gives you a vision or dream, wait for Him to fulfill it. When you go before Him it only leads to disaster.

I did when He gave me the vision of teaching, waited that is.

Instead of just jumping in and beginning to teach English as a Second Language, I patiently took a course and then waited two years before stepping out in His direction at His time.

Yes, I fretted (worried) over whether this is what Jehovah really intended for me to do in service unto Him.

Yes, I fretted (a lot) when He directed me to go China (Not a safe place for Christians to go).

But, as usual, it was all for nothing. Jehovah did direct me where to go and protected me while there. As well, He taught me so much during this time.

Jehovah works in His time, in His way. We, His children, are to go where Daddy leads and do as Daddy wishes us to do. This is the Christian life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for teaching me to be patient while I wait to accomplish Your tasks in Your way in Your time. I thank You in the name of He who waited until just the right time to come as a sacrifice for my entry into Your Heavenly family 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

Do Not Even Associate With

  do not allow them to control you

Do not even associate with a man given to angry outbursts; Or go [along] with a hot-tempered man, Or you will learn his [undisciplined] ways And get yourself trapped  [in a situation from which it is hard to escape].Proverbs 22:24-25  Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are explosive folks. You can be having a nice social conversation with them and suddenly they will explode in a rage. I have seen it numerous times and it was terrifying, until Jehovah blessed me with the peace, wisdom and grace to be firm with them and inform them that that childish behavior is not tolerated with me so either straighten up or get away from me. If they refuse to obey then I inform them they can discuss it with the police. Then they leave, all the while screaming like a banshee about how I am abusing them (it is not my fault, it is yours is their mantra). 

Do not try to reason with them because there is no reasoning with a fool. All that will happen is that you will get into a yelling contest with them and lose your temper, Then, they will manipulate you to lose your temper even more and they will be laughing at you on the inside.                                         

Never get into an argument with a fool. To do so, you have to go down to their level and they will beat you every time from experience. Anonymous 

I speak from a lot of experience.

In the future I refuse to even acknowledge them (even to say hello or good morning) because that opens the door and they are thieves. They will steal your peace and you will get into another yelling contest. Again, I speak from a lot of experience.

I depend upon the Holy Spirit to bless me with strength, wisdom and grace to handle these poor pitiful folks. Yes some of them are like this because of unresolved issues in their lives but most are like this because they just love to fight.    

The pitiful thing is though, that because they are cursed with this disposition, they have no friends, especially in their elder years.                                    

No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace while dealing with a war monger who attempts to steal it from me. Thank you for blessing me with the wisdom in how to prevent them from stealing Your Divine gift from me. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

Too Great to Understand

JEHOVAH lOVE AFFAIR

 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Ephesians 3:19 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

How can this be?

I have heard the old saying that men will never understand a woman (and vise versa) which to a degree is true.

But, how can a love be so great that we cannot understand it?

That is amazing.

We have all been in loving relationships but we understood the manner of our love for each other and why we love each other. That is logical.

By our standards Jehovah has to be the most illogical being we have ever encountered. That is because His ways are so much higher than ours. That is because He loves us so much more than we can ever give back in return. That is why I deeply desire to love Him more and more every day. Not because I want more of His love but because just once I would like to love Him back almost as much as He loves me.

I believe that for every ounce of love we give Jesus, He gives us a pound more back in return. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for revealing the mystery of You and for the anticipation of always expanding that knowledge. I love learning more and more about You every day. I praise You for this awesome gift in the name of Your most precious gift to this world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Miracle That We Really Get.

JEHOVAHS COMMUNION

 You have endowed him with eternal blessings and given him the joy of your presence. Psalm 21:6 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Have you ever been in Jehovahs presence?

I mean, have you ever experienced His celestial being being with you?

I have on numerous occasions. Every time there is an overwhelming experience of love, peace and joy. Every molecule in my body was tingling like a delightful electric current racing through it and I exploded in ecstasy singing out: “I love you my God, I love you. “

Time does not exist and it is as if there is nothing nor anyone in the universe except for my Beloved and I.

This is freely available to anyone and everyone who develops a loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

We do not get to dictate the when or where that is Divine blessing occurs. It is up to Jehovahs discretion.

But, I will tell you this: it is an experience like nothing else on the planet. There is nothing that can compare to it.

“It is not the objective proof of God’s existence that we want but the experience of God’s presence. That is the miracle we are really after, and that is also, I think, the miracle that we really get.” — Frederick Buechner

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy every time You honour me with Your presence. It is the sweetest joy there can ever be. I exalt You in the name of He who blesses You with the most joy, Your awesome son Jesus Christ. Amen

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