First He must Break You.

WE ARE PURIFIED

My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. Psalm 51:17 New International Version

Before you can be used by Jehovah you must first be broken.

There is something or someone in everyone’s lives that they put above Christ. For some it is family, for some it is their job, for some it is their ego. Whatever it is, it must be crushed by Christ.

For me it was someone and a situation was brought about where that bond was painfully broken.

After the healing it was then that Christ could use me.

The amazing thing is that I did not even realize I was a slave to my devotion.

Now I am free from that enslavement and there is a very deep, rewarding, loving relationship between my Beloved and me that I pray I never allow anyone or anything to destroy.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) crush whatever comes between You and me so that I may have the immense honor of serving my beautiful Father. I humble request this in the name of He who served You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Know Not When.

JESUS' GUIDANCE

This is what the Lord says: “I am going to remove you from the face of the earth. You will die this year!” Jeremiah. 28:16

We know not when our time of departure from this world shall come upon us.

If the word departure sounds like something you hear concerning a trip it is well minded that that is what death is.

It is a trip from a limited fleshly existence on this planet to a trip to an eternal spiritual world.

With this in view just as you plan a vacation trip so should you plan your spiritual eternal destiny with ever more diligence.

Earthly trips can and do go array but there is no deviation from your eternal spiritual destiny.

Do not be casual for one moment and say that you will dedicate more of your life unto Christ when _____ fill in the blank.

The length of life in an individual is the most uncertain thing in existence.

What is it that hinders your devotion unto Christ?

Is it that you must finish school first?

What makes you so cock sure that your time on earth will allow it?

Is it that you have a family to care for or until you have paid off your mortgage?

Then you are a fool.

Look around and see how many young widows and widowers there are.

Is it that you need to pay off your mortgage first?

See the for sale signs that are there because the slaves unto the bank died before they could pay off their mortgage.

The time to dedicate your daily life unto Christ is now because you do not even know if you will awake to see the morning sun. Then it will be too late and you will have forfeited your eternal Heavenly home because of your earthly cares.

In whatever state you die this year—that you will be forever!

Will Christ say to you: “Well done good and faithful servant.” or will He say to you:” Get away from Me because I do not know you.”

Put Christ first in your daily lives and allow Him to help you take care of the earthly cares of daily life. I say help you because yes He may take care of a situation for us however most times we must be prepared to work in harmony with the Holy Spirit in our daily lives to succeed.

The time to dedicate our lives to Jesus is now because there may not be a tomorrow. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh how I continuously praise You my Beloved Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the unsurpassing privilege of being Your humbly obedient servant. Although many of the tasks You have assigned this submissive servant to do have been exceedingly challenging, they were always rewarding in accomplishing to make Your heart dance with joy as You make mine in service unto You. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world 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

Satan is a Master At.

 Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out [unescorted] to visit the girls of the land. When Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince (sheik) of the land, saw her, he kidnapped her and lay [intimately] with her by force [raping and humbling and offending her].Genesis 34:1-2 Holy Bible, Amplified Version.                             

This is why it is important not to hang out with those in the world. They can and do set you up to be abused (yes it happens to men as well).                 

Now that is not to say it will happen all the time but the danger is real. It may look cool, it may look fun, you may want to fit in with the in crowd but it will have devastating consequences. Unfortunately I have seen too many lives destroyed by these filth.                

Satan and his minions are masters at making dung look like sugar. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is why if you are going to an event where worldly folks linger ( say you want to go to a school dance, if they still have those things), it is best to go with chaperones that are strong Christians. That is why it is best to congregate with those in Christian fellowship. It is a lot safer and just as if not more rewarding. I used to immensely enjoy myself at summer Christian retreats and music festivals.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with lighting my path in daily life so as to avoid the snares satan and his minions have sneakily prepared for me. Please always be a beacon throughout my daily life so as to never stray from Your Divine life You desire me to live. I exalt Thee in the name of He who refused to be conned by satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen

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