I was Convicted

delightful panoramic water dance

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Recently I was convicted while reading a morning devotional. The Holy Spirit convicted me that the words of my mouth did not match the meditation of my heart. Someone was terribly abusive to me and I said some very unchristian words in anger and frustration (the abuser did not care that her actions caused me great physical pain).

I promptly repented and even though she is still abusive my meditations with my Beloved are in love again.

It does not matter how much anyone is physically and or mentally abusive to me. All that matters is my loving obedient relationship with my Heavenly Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always keep my focus on our loving relationship no matter how abusive those around me are. It is the anchor that hows me close to You in those horrible storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who calmed the violent storm on the seas for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Have You Ever Suffered From?

REPENT OR ELSE

 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Have you ever suffered from constipation for a few days?

It feels as if hands of fire are gripping your guts, and your head is going to explode.

Think of how relieved you feel when you finally have a bowel movement. Afterwards you feel light as air and feels pretty good huh?

Now think about how you feel when you repent of your sins. Think of how those sins eat at your soul affecting not only it but your physical health as well. When you repent, that filth is excreted from your soul like a spiritual bowel movement. Should we not be grateful to the one who makes forgiveness possible just as we are relieved from physical constipation?

The Holy Spirits conviction is the best spiritual enema you will ever have for better spiritual health. It flushes the filth of sin form the spirit quite effectively.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) – Is. 49:26, 60:16 for blessing me with conviction which brings me unto repentance which blesses me with redemption. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood made redemption possible 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.

One Whose Heart Breaks

REPENT OR ELSE

When I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent. I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Selichot (God Of Forgiveness) for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness. Please bless my heart to be as forgiving unto the repentant as You are towards me when I repent. I sincerely give thanks and request this in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

There are Two Important Steps in this Verse

voice of god

Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided. Proverbs 16: 6 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important steps in this verse.

The first part is that through our love for Jehovah we feel shame for our sin so we repent of it. Jehovah for His part then forgives us of that sin.

“The truth is, living in agreement with God will bring His conviction when we are disobedient. Conviction may feel like a negative thing, but it’s just as much a part of God as His smile. He is committed to making our lives work in Him, and He will use the strength and power of His conviction to let us know when we are outside His will. It may feel bad, but conviction is God at work in us.” — David Edwards

The second part is when we are obedient unto the Holy Spirits guidance He directs us away from places and things that would tempt us to sin. It does not mean we will be protected from evil because it is all around us and sometimes strikes us personally.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness when I mess up and honestly repent. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to guide me along the road to Heaven You have chosen for me to take and for helping me to stay upon said road. I praise You in Your wise 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

Be sure of this

THE FIRES OF HELL

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is the best revenge you do not want to see.

Speaking from personal experience, yes I have desired revenge upon more than a few folks in my time.

Many times I got it on my own until the Lord convicted me that is a strong no, no for a Christian. We are to trust that Jehovah is a God of Justice and He will give vengeance in His way, in His time. Every time.

He has allowed me to witness His vengeance it has brought about the same three reactions.

One: a feeling of terror. Terror that that could be me one day because we all offend Jehovah because we are all sinners.

Repent or face the consequences. There is no plea bargaining or parole with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Two: a feeling of overwhelming joy that the blood of my Saviour along with my repentance (unrepentant sin is forgiven sin Joseph a son of Jehovah) exonerates me from receiving what the Law says (Jehovahs court, not mans) will be my punishment.

Three: Deep heart cutting agony at seeing the wicked suffer because of receiving Divine punishment.

You cannot love and rejoice at seeing Jehovahs justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

And, if you think it causes agony for us to witness it, imagine how it makes Jehovah feel. 

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hashopet (Judges 11:27) The LORD the Judge for the amazing blessing of forgiveness when I sincerely repent. Thank you that there is inescapable justice for the wicked when they refuse to repent. I extol You in Your fair name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

We Will be Just as Guilty As

CORRECT A FRIEND

Confront people directly so you will not be held guilty for their sin. Leviticus 19:17 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Yes, we are to call out wickedness when we encounter it. Other wise, we will be just as guilty as the one committing the offense.

In most countries if you witness a crime and refuse to report it to the police you will be convicted of being an accomplice.

So too it is with Christ.

If you see someone living in habitual sin and do nothing to lovingly, graciously and, when needed, bluntly call them out for it, you are just as guilty as they are. Now discretion is required. You do not call out a spaced out druggie or there will be dire consequences.

We must follow the Holy Spirit’s leading. If He suggests we intervene we must do so under His tutelage.

We can only help others with the help of the Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (GOD My Helper) bless me that You will help me to convict the sinners in a manner in which it will bring them unto repentance. I humbly request this in the name of He who used wisdom and discretion in bringing those souls that were receptive to repentance unto Holy repentance Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Is an Abuse To

THE FIRES OF HELL

Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God. Matthew 3:8 New Living Translation Bible

I have experienced it numerous times when a teacher. A student is caught being naughty. To avoid punishment they promise not to misbehave again. No sooner does class resume then they go right back to doing the same naughty things. The hammer comes down hard on them then even though they beg for forgiveness and promise not to commit the offence again. Not just to punish them for being naughty but to punish them for abusing teachers grace and to make an example out of them to the other student so they behave in class. It works fantastically. If the student refuses to behave they are expelled from class. If the parents argue about it there is a meeting with all the parents. It is explained to them the child refuses to behave themselves. Because of this I cannot teach the class. Vote for it. How many parents want that naughty child to come back in to class. The overwhelming number refuses and chases the naughty child and their parent out of class (this was in China).

So too it is with Jehovah.

There is no sense in confessing to any sin without any intention to take the necessary action to stop committing the offence. Your confession is meaningless. You will forfeit any right to enter Heaven and will instead be cast into eternal damnation in Hell for your wicked deeds.

“It is an abuse to confess any kind of sin, mortal or venial, without a will to be delivered from it, since confession was instituted for no other end.” — François de Sales

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with the wisdom  and strength to purge myself of that which is detestable unto You and repulsive unto me. I worship You in the name of He who cleansed the leper who was willing to dip into the Jordan river Jesus Christ. 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.
