True religion is . . .

 WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world. James 1:27 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Religion is described as a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

A principle of the heart; in my love for Jehovah and my fellow man

An element of the character of Christ residing with in me;

The habit of thinking, feeling, and acting according to the statutes of Jehovah in all my social relations;

The basis of every virtue which emulates the righteousness of Christs character ;

The main prop of every preforming with all of my mind, body and spirit to excel in service unto our Heavenly King ;

The fear – not just the punishment for the wicked in His terrible justice but to have constant respect and awe of Him but of the Lord, by which men depart from evil;

Faith which means trust working by love to accomplish with total zest all the tasks my Beloved Heavenly Father assigns for me to do;

Such a belief in the gospel of Christ, as leads to a conformity to His example in every aspect of my daily life.

True religion, though founded on a belief of doctrines, and nourished by the exercises of devotion—diffuses its influence over the entire character of man to make him Holy as Christ is holy.

True religion is the belief in Jesus Christ, the love of Jesus Christ, the worship of Jesus Christ, and the imitation of Jesus Christ.

True religion is sound morality, animated and sanctified by the Holy Spirit of true devotion to Christ in all of my deeds and words.

True religion prescribes, not only homage to God, but allows Him dominion into every part of my daily life..

It is all or nothing with Jesus. Either you belong totally to Him or you belong to satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emet (God of truth) continuously expand Thy Divine truth in my spirit and mind of the proper manner in which to daily, moment by moment focus on devoting myself to Your Supreme religion. I meekly request this in the name of He whose every aspect of His earthly journey focused on showing us the proper manner in which to have Your religion supreme in our lives Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Doctrines of Scripture Are.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The doctrines of Scripture are at once . . .the source of consolation, and the means of sanctification. It is in our worse agony that we experience the greatest consolation from our Heavenly Beloved. Sometimes He speaks to us in His loving word (the Bible) and sometimes He comes to us in spirit and comforts us personally. Either way we experience Divine comfort and encouragement.

To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer according to the dictionary. We as Jehovahs children are set apart from the world in our thinking, living and actions. We are to be beautiful lights that glow from our Heavenly relationship with our Divine Designer, Jehovah, so that we are beacons guiding those stumbling in the dark world into the Celestial Light, Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture . . .come into the mind as knowledge, produce peace and love in the heart, spread the beauties of holiness over the character and conduct. These Holy doctrines are taught to us individually by the supreme teacher, The Holy Spirit. They are not taught as a system of religion but rather are taught as a manner in which the child of Jehovah become holy.

One of the fruitations of growing in knowledge and application of scripture in Heavenly peace and love as we emulate our best friend Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture are light; and like the rays of the sun, they sustain life at the root of the vine, and produce fruit on its branches.

Just as sunlight bring live giving vitality unto the vine so too does scripture enlarge spiritual life in the child of Jehovah. This life produces abundant harvests in the society it dwells in.

This heavenly light of truth gives . . . spiritual vitality to the soul, and holy conduct to the life. The truth will truly set us free from the lies in the world around us and fill us with vitality to share this light with others. This is first accomplished in the conduct of the saint.

The doctrines of Scripture are facts, which involve corresponding emotions and principles of action, and must, from their very nature, if believed, be operative upon the heart and the life.

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your abundant Divine knowledge in the proper manner in which to conduct myself according to Your wise principals.

Please bless me with the strength to consistently incorporate them into my daily life.

I gratefully thank You and humbly beseech You in the name of the wisest most obedient man to ever walk the earth 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

It Does not Matter What

VOICE OF GOD

  Am I now ]trying to win the favor and approval of men, or of God? Or am I seeking to please someone? If I were still trying to be popular with men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                  

It does not matter what he says, she says or they say. What matters is what Jesus says.

For those who claim that the prophesies in the Bible were written by man they have to have a very vivid imagination. How could the prophets thousands of years before hand prophesy about Jesus’ coming?

How could they prophesy about things they could not even would exist thousands of years ahead of time (like global warming (which is what John was talking about)? \

How could Daniel even imagine the Roman Empire when they were just primitive villagers at that time?

For those who claim.no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will here is what Jehovah says to them but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God Given by Divine Inspiration . 2 Peter 1 : 21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version          

For those who claim that the Bible was written by man upon his own inclination this verse refutes that claim. This verse destroys those who claim the Bible was written by man for his own ends. Being a Christian writer myself I speak from person experience where Jehovah guides my writing. If it does not meet His approval He lets me know and guides me to write what He wants to be said. Just read all of my article to see if this is true.

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.2 Timothy 3 : 16 – 17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with Your Divine wisdom which You shared with ordinary men and women like me to speak through the ages to Your children. I pray I always listen, understand and submit to the prudence You speak to me using their writings to continue to grow into a obedient, loving child of Yours. I meekly request this in the name of the wisest of all 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

He is No Pushover.

USE DISCRECION

 I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too are to love one another. John 13:34 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Here is where the liberal Christians get it all wrong. They spew out lies that Jesus loved everyone with no conditions but that is a lie.

Jesus did not behave too lovingly towards the buyers and sellers at the temple did He?

He did not sound too loving when He told the scribes and pharisees that they murdered the prophets and then built statutes to worship them did He?

He did not sound too loving when He called the scribes and pharisees snakes and scorpions did He?

Yes we are to love others as Jesus loved us and part of that is calling out filthy behavior, sometimes quite sternly, when required. We are not to tolerate filthy behavior in our churches nor in our private friendships and are to drive out the wicked, unrepentant ones form this community to protect the weaker members from being led astray by them. Yes we are to walk away from those who reject Christ and shake the dust of them from our feet.

Jesus is love but He is no pushover nor a marshmallow. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) always bless me to walk in righteousness so that I will not suffer Your terrifying punishment on the Day of Judgement and guide me to guide others away from their wicked ways and unto Your righteous ways. I meekly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It is No Small Thing.

                                                    

And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and this[faith] was credited to him [by God] as righteousness and as conformity to His will,” and he was called the friend of God. James 2:23 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I can think of no one with whom I am as close to as my Heavenly Beloved. He is always there, He always cares, He always blesses me with Divine wisdom which prevents much hardship and heart ache in my life. He is always revealing to me the immensity of His Divine love for me. He comforts and encourages me.

And, best of all, when we are in communion with each other there is no one elses love that can even begin to compare with His. He is indeed truly my best friend above all others. No other can even begin to compare with Him.

“It is no small thing to be on terms of friendship with God.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with the ultimate loving friendship there could ever be. I hold this privilege as my most treasured blessing of all. I do love You with a ultimate love because You love me with Your ultimate love. I adore You in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Going First To.

                                                       

 All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]. 2 Timothy 3:16 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

“To be subjected to God’s will is not only to give Him priority in our lives, it is but to give Him complete control.|” — Avery D. Miller

In the early days of my walk with Christ I was very independent. It was not that I was proud but felt it a shame to ask for help and felt like a failure. It took the Holy Spirit many decades to finally eradicate that from my disposition. Now, I try not to attempt anything without going first to Jehovah in council.

Many times I do not understand what He is doing but I have complete trust in Him. He has never let me down so why should’t I.

Going my way is a gamble, going Jehovahs way is a sure fire success. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with Your omniscient guidance through out my life as I walk Your predestined path to Your Heavenly Home. I extol Thee in the name of the supreme Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Like a Rose Blooming In.

                                                   

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and the One who rescues me; My God, my rock and strength in whom I trust and take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower—my stronghold. Psalm 18:2 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One time while camping in the desert the winds picked up so bad I had to cup my hands over my face or else I would have been smothered to death.

That is what it is like sometimes when the world comes howling at us with TV, movies, music and society all screaming that sin is good and righteousness is foolishness.

That is when we need the Holy Spirit to come and wrap Himself around us and assure us we are walking the right walk.

In the morning there was huge red butes that when the sun rose they looked like giant fingers slowly moving to clamp onto my and squeeze me to death (or so it seemed).

So too can it seem as if there are pressures from the world to conform to their wickedness or they will destroy us in rage.

That is when we need the Holy Spirit to come plants the sweetness of Christs love for us with in our hearts and bloom like the most beautiful flower with in us.

One time while hiking along a trail by the ocean I decided to climb into a cave in a huge rock. Little did I realize that the high tide came all half way up that rock. That night a storm broke out and the waves reached the lip of the cave but never entered in.

So too is Christ there for us to take shelter in during the storms in our lives.

You will never find Jesus so precious as when the world is one vast howling wilderness. Then he is like a rose blooming in the midst of the desolation, a rock rising above the storm.” — Robert Murray M’Cheyne

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Sel’i (The Lord is my Rock) for blessing me with Your firm foundation and sanctuary during the raging storms in my life. Thank you that through this my faith and gratitude for You has blossomed into a beautiful creation of which You are well pleased. I praise You in the name of the most beautiful gardener of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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