Choose for Yourselves.

If it is unacceptable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

We must all choose, there is no fence sitting. Either you are for Christ or you are His enemy. There is no such thing as atheist and all other religions are worldly.

Deep in our hearts we know this to be true.

We who walk in the light are blessed with Heavenly communion with a Divine Father who loves us, cares for us, cares about us and blesses us with both material and spiritual blessings. He will not bless us with mansions (at least not here on earth) but He does bless us with dwelling in our hearts and in our lives.

Those without Christ are foolishly blindly staggering through out life with no meaning nor purpose.

At the completion of our physical lives those in the darkness will be condemned to eternal damnation in a place of horrible torment called hell while those who walk in the light shall be blessed with eternal communion with the prince of light in joy, love and peace.

It is your choice, choose wisely, your eternity depends upon it.

””The issue now is clear. It is between light and darkness and everyone must choose his side.” — G. K. Chesterton

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Basileus, meaning “leader of the people” for blessing me with Your Divine leadership with in my life. I exalt Thee in the name of my Beloved Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He was Disgusting to Society

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a shepherd in Davids time he was disgusting to them. Shepherds were dirty, smelly and uncouth. But, Jehovah saw what was in his heart.

The same is true in us. You do not need to be a supermodel, wear all the latest designer clothes, attend a premier college or university or have a fat wallet to be used by Jehovah. It is your heart He is looking for.

When I was young I was poor, very shy and constantly sick. Those that knew me then would never have believed the manner in which Christ used me and the incredible transformation He has accomplished in me.

The same is true for everyone, including you.

It does not matter your appearance, your social graces, your intelligence or any other factor in your life. When your heart is receptive unto Christ He joyously embraces you into His Divine family.

The only requirement to be of service unto Christ our King is an obedient, receptive heart. Give Him that and watch the amazing things He does in your life and through your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not reject the worst sinners like drunks or drug addicts as unworthy to become Jehovahs children because it is the worst sinners who make the best saints. This is because they appreciate the Hell the Holy Spirit has delivered them from.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying a wicked sinner like me into Your Holy family.

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

He Has Told You.

 He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion), And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]? Micah 6:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no excuse.

An excuse is a skin of a reason wrapped up in a lie. A.W. Tozer

Jehovah has told you and you are to obey.

We are to be just. That means there is no discrimination towards those of a different colour, nationality, sex or income than what we have. There is the original equality law for you. We are to be loving.

That means not just helping other but correcting them when they are wrong ( which the satanic liberally wrong).

That does not mean a feel good event like donating to the food bank at Christmas but making a commitment to help those in poverty get out of it.

It means we are to have compassion on the disadvantaged like seniors and the disabled. We are to help them with our fellowship and encouragement.

That means we are not to be annoying, self centered twits that believes the whole world revolves around us but are to be respectful and courteous to both Jehovah and to those around us.

Now we all need His guidance and strength to accomplish this every day. That is why we need to ask for and obey the Holy Spirits wisdom which He freely and generously gives to all who asks with humbleness and sincerity.

Prayer: Please Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless this humble servant of Your with an obedient heart in my service unto You my cherished King. I sincerely request this in You magnanimous name. Amen.

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

Have I Not Commanded You.

 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Not the Jehovah has commanded us not asked us nor suggested to us to be strong and courageous. That is only accomplished by those who have faith – trust in Him. Joshua 1:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah is not asking us nor is He suggesting to us to be strong and courageous. He is TELLING us.

Now where are we expected to get the strength and courage to face our demons and giants that are so much more powerful than us and have so much more resources then us?

Let me ask you two questions:

Question number one: who is stronger than Jehovah? Sounds kinda silly doesn’t because we know there is no one stronger than Him. Then why are we to be afraid and cowards when our Heavenly Superman is on our side?

Question number two: Who has more resources: our foes or our Heavenly Father? Then why are you weak kneed when facing them?

“Faith makes it possible, not easy.” — Sally Nguyen Faith means to trust.

How much do you truly believe there really is a God in Heaven and when He assigns a task for you which seems impossible or when facing giants He will not bless us with strength and courage to complete the task or defeat our nemesis’?

How much do you trust Him?

Those who do not have trust in Jehovah insult Him by their unbelief and distrust. Joseph son of Jehovah.

It is alright when we occasionally fail in this endeavour because we are weak humans. But, when we repent, which we must, He will fully expect you to get up and complete the task or defeat the foes by His strength and with His resources.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with enlarging my confidence and trust in You through the numerous assignments in which You overflowingly supplied all the materials and skills to accomplish the divine task You assigned for me to accomplish in my service unto You. I praise You in Your generous name. Amen.

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

The Mark of a Saint

Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [that is, separate you from profane and vulgar things, make you pure and whole and undamaged—consecrated to Him—set apart for His purpose]; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept complete and [be found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

A saint is someone who has set himself away from the world and set their lifestyle to living the Christian life. That is what concentrate means we are dedicated to a sacred purpose and that purpose is to serve Christ in our daily lives.

It need not be big things because every act of service unto the Lord is special unto Him not matter how big or small.

When we request Jehovah to guide our words and actions He will always lead us unto service towards Him by serving others. And that is the important thing.

Do not go off half cocked and think you can serve Him however you chose because then you are not serving Him but serving yourself saying : “Look at me Lord aren’t I a good child?”

Indeed many souls have done this not to bring the lost to Christ but rather to being them to their church.

Where as, following His leading is saying: “Because I love You I shall go where You ask me to go and do what You want me to do.” That does not mean we have halos or are perfect.

Indeed it is quite humorous when I inform folks that I am a saint.

The first thing they say to me is:”Where is your halo?”

“The mark of a saint is not perfection, but consecration . A saint is not a man without faults, but a man who has given himself without reserve to God.” W. T. Richardson

Prayer:Please Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) bless me with helping to help others where You want me to go and to do what You desire for me to do. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient son who went all the way to the cross on Your desire Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Repetition of Small Efforts.

Do not grow tired or lose heart in doing good [but continue doing what is right without weakening].2 Thessalonians 3:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a boy a group I belonged to had the motto of practicing do a good deed a day every day.

Why not try it?

Start with little things.

Pray to Jehovah to show you where you can fulfill this assignment so that He prevents you from being made a sucker out of and when it will do the most good.

It is a great opportunity to share Jesus with others.

Pray that He gives you the strength to continue on even when you do not feel like it.

Over time this will become a subconscious habit.

Not every time will it be appreciated (for example when you hold the door open for someone and they do not say thank you or when you are a man holding the door open for a woman that hates men you will get an ear full. I just smile and say: You are welcome and walk away. Do not start a fight.).

Do not be discouraged and hold firmly in the belief that you are doing this for the glory and pleasure of Jehovah.

Yes He is very joyous when He sees His children being loving, even to unloving folks.

Every good deed done unto Christ, no matter how big or small is precious in His sight. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“The repetition of small efforts will accomplish more than the occasional use of great talents.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me with a reminder to not only continue my repetition of service unto my Heavenly King but to expand it. I humbly beseech Thee in the name He whose loving heart took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Stay focused

 

When daybreak came, Jesus left [Simon Peter’s house] and went to a secluded place; and the crowds were searching for Him, and [they] came to Him and tried to keep Him from leaving them. But He said, “I must preach [the good news of] the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because I was sent for this purpose.” Luke 4:42-44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times in while serving our purpose to our Heavenly King things or folks will try (some unintentionally, some intentionally) to distract us from our service. They will entice us with material things like money, sex or power.

Do not heed them, these things are temporary and will be taken from you in the blink of an eye.

Every major task Jehovah has ordained me to be in service unto Him was met with a lot of distractions from others (sometimes it was the devil working through them, sometimes it was well meaning from them but they did not understand the calling and sometimes they were just jealous and spiteful and wanted me to fail) We are to stay focused.

The only way to accomplish this is to stay in continual communion with the Holy Spirit who will bless you with insight into the foolish distraction, the power to resist it and the way to escape it.

Many times it was extremely difficult to resist the temptation laid out before me and it was only by the power of the Holy Spirit that disaster was averted.

Many times what was laid out before me that looked like sweet cherries was actually bitter and sour lemons. I did not know that and would have fallen for the trap if not for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

The only way to avoid satans trap is to stay on the road Jehovah requests that you walk upon. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Christ Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with guiding this gullible sheep away from the wicked ones traps to deter me from service unto my cherished King and thank you for providing Divine guidance unto the paths of service unto You that You have ordained me to serve unto You. I praise You in You magnificent name. Amen

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