The Greatest Treasure Hunt

If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. Jeremiah 29:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

LOOK FOR ME

Have you ever participated in the greatest treasure hunt?

What is this treasure you may ask?

To find the most fantastic love affair ever.

How can you find this treasure?

To begin with sincerely ask Jehovah to come into your life and your heart. Then answer the door when He comes a knocking.

Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends Revelation 3:20 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Sharing a meal with Jesus is the best meal you will ever have. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Then, be sensitive to His invitations.

He reveals Himself to us in many ways including reveal Himself in nature, through dreams, through the Bible and yes, sometimes even speaking with you in a quiet place.

One thing is for sure, once you experience a relationship with Him you will be eager for more.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for blessing me with so many ways You have revealed Yourself to me and for the countless times we have communed together. Those are the most precious treasure in my life. I thank You in the name of He who is the treasure of my heart Jesus Christ. Amen

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

No Matter the Enemy.

The Lord your God is with you, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He will have much joy over you. With His love He will give you new life. He will have joy over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST SHOWS HIS STRENGTH

No matter the enemy you are doing battle with, the unconquerable Trio is right there in the thick of it with you.

They are of course: Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Do not think this is a one battle event.

There are addiction battles, health battles, bad disposition battle and relationship battle. These occur over the course of a lifetime.

Some battles are short, some last for decades (I can think of one in my life that took over forty years before our Loves finally annihilated it ).

Some battles will never be won until we reach Heavens Gate.

Some battles we must be submissive to our Holy Kings to fight along side of them for victory to be won.

Some battles we must step back and surrender them to the Heavenly Trio to destroy.

Through them all Jehovah the Refiner is burning off the filth in us and making us the pure children of love He intended for us to be. After each burning off of the dross (eliminating the filth in us) Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the angels in Heaven  dance for joy at seeing us become more refined than the finest gold.

We are constantly being remoulded into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with Your victorious battle skills that You have taught me to use to win battles, for sharing You awesome battle strategies with me so that we win the battle together and for blessing me with the skills, knowledge and You magnificent encouragement to egg me on to victory. I bless You in the name of He who won the greatest battle of all, that over death, 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Will Hear Me

 

But I will call on God and the Lord will rescue me. Morning, noon, and night   I cry out in my distress,  and the Lord hears my voice.  He ransoms me and keeps me safe   from the battle waged against me,  though many still oppose me.  God, who has ruled forever, will hear me and humble them. For my enemies refuse to change their ways;  they do not fear God. Psalm 55:16-19  The Holy Bible The New Living Translation                     

  “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say? Luke 6:46 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is someone in my life that is using me and being abusive towards me even though they claim to be a Christian. Recently my Beloved has directed me to have a formal relationship with them.                                                            

 This morning I asked the Lord for confirmation if this is the path He desires for me to take.         

The first verse spoke to me about my calling out to Him because of the abuse inflicted upon me and the second was about how the one afflicting me is suffering numerous physical ailments.

Take heart dear children. Jehovah loves us and walks with us during our tribulations.

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

But, He is also a God of justice and will punish our offenders in the appropriate manner in His way and in Him Time.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

The second verse informs me that whether I like it or not, I am to be obedient unto my Kings direction in this life of service towards Him.

Jesus is not just my Savior but is also my King. That means I put His will above mine. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses) for blessing me with the knowledge that those who abuse me shall receive seven times worse in Your court of justice.

Thank you Jesus Ha-Melech (Psalms 98:6 The LORD the King) for the honour of being Your humble servant. May I always be a faithful and true servant to You.

I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father.

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What is Wisdom?

To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. 1 Corinthians 12:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into practice.     

Where do we receive the best knowledge?     

From the tutorship of the Holy Spirit.     

voice of god                        

Our life here and now will determine where we spend our next life in eternity, and yes, there is an eternal life after this one. Therefore we should live it wisely. Invest your time in Jehovahs Heavenly Kingdom and your place with in it.                                               

Folks invest their money and time for a comfortable retirement while on this earth, how much do they invest in their eternal home?               

No, it will not be a retirement home. Jesus has work for us that will be enjoyable.                     

Live each moment as if the next you were to meet Jesus because you never know when that moment will arrive Joseph a son of Jehovah               

Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die. Anonymous This is the mantra of the fool that dams them into Hell. Please do not be so unwise as to live this destructive manner of life.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit help me live a life that will please my loving Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6. I look forward to the day when we can share a huge hug and I hear Him say to me:”Well done good and faithful servant.” I look forward to spending an eternity with the one I worship above all others. Please bless me with the opportunity to share this wonderful relationship with others so they may join in this royal family. I thank you and humbly ask this in the name of my adoring King, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are You Willing To

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer

Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?

Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?

In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?

Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?

Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?

When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?

On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.

Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?

Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.

Now, that does not sound stupid does it? 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Me First Puts You Last.

SATANS TRAP

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.                                                                                      You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up James 4:1-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Is it not true, this is what causes so many fights today, the feeling that you are the center of the universe? Because of this, you feel no qualms about stepping all over everybody else because you think you are better than anyone else. You refuse to see anyone else’s point of view. You are rude because again, you think you are the center of the universe. Maybe you are to momma and or granma, but not to the rest of us. Grow up and be a man or woman. Learn to respect others.

How about your relationship with God?

In your communion with Him do you have the gimme, gimme attitude?

Are your prayers centered around yourself? Then you cry baby because God does not give you everything you demand.

So many times I have encountered people who say they don’t believe in God (I say they say they don’t believe in God because I believe we all deep down we all know He exists. Many just refuse to accept Him because He will not give them their every desire like spoiled children and because they are haughty and refuse to submit to anyone). When I ask them why, they reply that it is because He has not answered their prayers. When asked what their prayers are they are always self centered.

Of course God will not answer those prayers (Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Gods help or guidance. That is what He wants us to do.).

My prayer is: Not my will but Thy will be done my God. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do. May my words and actions bring glory and praise to You and may they lead the lost little sheep to You.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now what is friendship with the world?

I believe it is self seeking pleasures, whether it be booze, drugs, sex or commercialism. Again, it’s all about you.

That is the life of a loser. Their life is left with a void that they do not understand why. The reason is because they do not have the heart of a servant of the most regal of kings, Jesus Christ.

The happiest people I have ever met are also the humblest.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary

I love being humble and yes most days I am very joyful (Happiness depends upon physical stimulation, joyfulness depends upon Jehovahs love beating in your heart).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy as I nurture our loving relationship which is the most joyful experience there is. I applaud You in the name of He who brings the light of joy to my heart 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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

Your Communication Will Be

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 The end and culmination of all things is near. Therefore, be sound-minded and self-controlled for the purpose of prayer [staying balanced and focused on the things of God so that your communication will be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Him.]1 Peter 4:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version           

How can you be sound minded if you are watching unsound garbage which passes for entertainment on TV or in the movies                                                        

How can you be sound minded with the rubbish they call music screaming in your ears with its enticing you to live a life that is filthy in Jehovahs eyes?

Garbage in , garbage out. If you listen to this garbage it will pollute your mind to emulate this rubbish. 

Is it not better to listen to music that praises our Beloved Heavenly Father.

How can you be self controlled if you have no control over your mind? When you watch this trash that passes for entertainment on TV and in the movies, it will draw you into that lifestyle like a alluring siren tried to lure that ship to destruction in a Greek mythology tale of Jason and the Argonauts .

Is it not better to mediate on the Bible and a relationship with Jehovah? Why not watch programs that are Christian like on Dove Channel or purflix.

How can your mind be focused on Jehovah while being clouded with the filth of the world?

Personally, many times I find satan filling my mind with drawing it away from talking with Jehovah with stupid things like thinking about what to have for a meal or what the weather is. He will do anything to interfere with our loving conversation with our cherished Heavenly Father. This is why we need to practice concentrating and being close with Jehovah so when satan tries this we just tell him to shove off. Do not think he will leave, he will be a pest all through out your prayer time. This is good because it shows you are getting close with Jehovah which is what satan hates the most.

The only way for our communication to be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Jehovah is if we are using the language in which He speaks. If He does not speak the devils language why do you think He would listen to yours? Joseph a son of Jehovah

 Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shama (God who hears) bless me to always speak Your language not just to You but to those I come in contact with every day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who speaks the most eloquently of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Who Better is There Than

The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies. Psalm 25:14-15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation.

A covenant is an agreement between two people (in this case between Jehovah and us). It is an unbroken promise.

Jehovah teaches us to be the closest of best friends with Him.

Close friends share the good times and the bad times together. Jehovah is there to enjoy the good times with us and to encourage us through the hard times.

Close friends confidently confide with each other their deepest secrets. We can confidently confide in Jehovah and He never blabs it all over town. He loves to confide in us.

Close friends watch out for each other. Now it is impossible for us to watch out for Jehovah but we can watch out for His other children around us. He is always watching out for us. He never sleeps nor is too busy or on vacation and unavailable.

Close friends are always there to help each other. We cannot help Jehovah personally but we can help out those in His community as an act of helping Him out. Jehovah is always there to help us not matter the problem.

Close friends will fight to the death to protect each other. We cannot fight to protect Jehovah but we can fight to protect His children suffering because of injustice (this need not be confined to third world countries but look around us today in industrialized countries and we see the wicked ones constantly at battle against Jehovahs children (and yes, the socialists called liberals are the worst perpetrators).

I cannot count the number of times Jehovah has laughed at the wicked ones as He led me safely away from their vile traps and they became entangled in their own traps.

Who better is there than Jehovah to be our closest of closest best friend. It is impossible to think of anyone to be His equal much less His superior. That is why Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are my closest of closest best friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honor of being my best friend like no other is capable of being. It is the most wonderful of all relationships. I extol You in Your loving name. 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 Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

All for What?

thank him

 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 New Living Translation

Worry is a thief.

It robs you of your physical health, it robs you of a good nights sleep, to robs you of your mental health, it robs you of your personal relationships.

All for what?

Most times the things I worried over never happened any way. And whether way it is always out of my hands so why waste your time and energy ?

It has taken me a life time to have confidence in Jehovah. Now, I just thank Him for being such a loving Father and have faith in that it is in His capable hands.

Worry is an insult to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When or if He directs me to take action I obey Him because of faith that it will bring success. If He says not to take any action my hand remains still because of faith that if my hand moves it will only bring disaster.

“Worry is a conversation you have with yourself about things you cannot change. Prayer is a conversation you have with God about things He can change.” unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace as I lay everything at Your feet. I have complete confidence in Your provisions in every aspect of my life. I exalt You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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
