Hold On to It

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. John 14 1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times when in times of trouble, sorrow or worry I held on to Christs strong, loving hand like a man holding onto the rescuers hand as he hauls me out of a swift raging river that threatens to engulf me. He always pulled me through.

Many times when Christ, my King took this servant of His to worlds unknown it was extremely terrifying. Yet, there was His strong hand gently in mine guiding me through it.

It has taken decades to learn and trust my Savior no matter what comes my way because of the knowledge and faith that His hand is in mine and He will never let me go.

Whatever comes your way always pray first unto our loving, caring Heavenly King for reassurance of His presence through this trauma. He will bless you with peace, and assurance that He is there with you. He is walking with you through every event both good and bad.

Today, why not heart feltly thank Him for the times He has been with you in the past (both that you knew of and the times He was there that you were not even aware of) as His gentle strong hand led you through all of your difficult times.

If you are going through difficult times now, call out to Him and rest in His strong but gentle loving bosom.

Jesus is always there, Jesus always cares. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your strong gentle hand being in my feeble hand as we walked together through all of my difficult times both great and small. I am eternally grateful for this gracious loving gift. I praise You in the name of He who encouraged and strengthen His disciples as He walked with them, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Your Choice.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

Wisdom shouts in the street,
She raises her voice in the markets;
She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather];
At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:
How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning? How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing, How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?
If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
Because I called and you refused [to answer],
I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer];
And you treated all my counsel as nothing
And would not accept my reprimand, I also will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when your dread 
and panic come,
When your dread 
and panic come like a storm, And your disaster comes like a whirlwind, When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].
Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer;
They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me, Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the 
Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel,
And they spurned all my rebuke.
Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.
For the turning away of the naive will kill them, And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them.
But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.” Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Listen to and obey Jehovah now or receive His terrible rewards later. It is your choice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I humbly beseech You Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless me to always be in harmony with Your word. To do so is rewarded with magnificent closeness with You and prevents heaps of anguish, trouble and sorrow in my life. I praise You in the name of He who I love to walk with and talk with every day, my wise big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

 

Only Increases in Value. Happy [blessed, considered fortunate, to be admired] is the man who finds [skillful and godly] wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding 
and insight [learning from God’s word and life’s experiences],
For wisdom’s profit is better than the profit of silver, And her gain is better than fine gold.
   Proverbs 3:13-14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version I have met many fools with pockets full of money. I have many so called guinuses in the stock moarket. I have met many who consider themselves experts at life. Interestingly enough they all fail in their lives. That is because they arrogantly depend upon themsleves instead of Jehovah for guidence. This transends every generation not just the young crowd. I have met many that would be considered paupers in the worlds standards but are some of the wisest folks I have ever met. I eagerly anticipated sitting at their feet and drinking in their incredible wisdom. One thing they all had in common was that they never took credit for themselves but alawys gave the glory where it belongs, unto Jehovah. Wisdoms value never diminishes but only increases in value when it comes from Jehovahs treasure house of knowledge. Joseph a son of Jehovah Prayer: Glory glory excelsis unto You my Beloved Heavenly Teacher for blessing me with Divine wisdom in every perpective of my life. I esteem this treasure above all other and thank You for this blessing in the name of the most wonderful councillor Jesus Christ. Amen May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In the Quiet Moments

                                                        

The Lord is near to the heartbroken Psalm 34:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I cannot count the number of times worry, sorrow, frustration and anger were so deep with in my soul it felt like a blanket of heavy steel completely encompassing my whole being. Jehovah always led me to a quiet place and there He comforted me, encouraged me and strengthened me.

So many folks laughed and wrote me off thinking I was totally demolished and a failure. The shock to them when they saw me return and go right back at it with gusto was quite humorous.

Sometimes this process was repeated numerous times but there was always victory in the end.

It does not matter what your situation in life there are always times when we need to be alone with our Beloved for Him to care for us both mentally, spiritually and physically.

“Be still, and in the quiet moments, listen to the voice of your heavenly Father. His words can renew your spirit. No one knows you and your needs like He does.” Janet L. Weaver

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer) for blessing me with Your gentle loving reassurance, strength and comfort in my numerous times of need. I love You and adore Your for Your abundant grace You have bestowed upon this adoring child of Your. I exalt Thee in the name of the best Healer 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

Then I am Strong.

                                       

So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength]. 2 Corinthians 12:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The world says: depend upon self, just try hard enough and you will succeed. That is a foolish fantasy. Sometimes you will succeed in the task but lose out on the reward of doing it in harmony with Jehovah. The other problem is you are doing what you want and not what Jehovah has made you to do. The fruition of this is unfulfillment in your endevour.

Christians, although we do not enjoy them, should be grateful for our weaknesses. Because, it is in our weaknesses that Christ is strong. The benefit of this is an ever closer relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Depend upon self, wait for the fall. Depend upon Christ, be assured of the victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for supporting me in Your strong yet gentle arms when I am weak, when distress envelopes me, when I am wrongly persecuted and when sorrow and pain encompass my every being. I appreciate, love and adore You for these amazing attributes in the name of my strongest best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Outside of Christ.

                                         

Be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. Ephesians 6:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are outside of Christ we are easy pickings for the devil and his minions. Their greatest joy is bringing nothing but sorrow, pain, anger and hatred. He is great at nurturing guilt complexes, jealousy, envy, backbiting, selfishness and a whole litany of other mental problems which slowly destroys all joy from our lives.

As well we are susceptible to being enslaved by society. We fall for the enslavement of trying to keep up with the Jones and stupidly going so deep into debt it will never be paid off. And, if any little catastrophe occurs like a raise in interest rates, a recession ( where you lose your job) the result is that all of your hard work is for naught because you can no longer afford to pay for all your toys and house and lose everything. You are bitter and deeply depressed. We fall for the con men and women that deceive us into foolishly believing that sex out of marriage is fun, drugs are fun, and alcohol abuse is fun ( just look at the rubbish on TV, in the movies and listen to the complete garbage that passes off as music to confirm this). This destroys our minds bodies and spirit over time and leaves us as an empty shell of a being in a total miserable state.

On the flip side when we are in Christ, He blesses us with meaning in life, to enjoy and nurture a loving relationship with Him and a Divine purpose in life, to be obedient servants of our Heavenly King. We never ask why we are here nor what is the meaning of life because our Heavenly King has revealed it to us. When we have this, we have complete strength and wisdom by the Holy Spirit to expose and resist the wicked demons and the foolishness of worldliness. We are blessed with complete fullness of life, both now and eternally.

Outside of Christ, I am weak; in Christ, I am strong.” Watchmen Nee

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Divine wisdom and strength to know the devils wiles and blessing with with the strength and wisdom in the proper manner in which to defeat the. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to defeat the devil in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They are Calling Jehovah Wicked.

Differing weights [one for buying and another for selling] and differing measures, Both of them are detestable and offensive to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable and offensive [to the Lord]. How much more [unacceptable and insulting can it be] when he brings it with evil intention? Proverbs 21:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Detestable means arousing or meriting intense dislike in the dictionary.

So many times I hear preachers and others say that the thing we hate the most is the thing in which we ourselves do as well.

In the Christian perspective they are dead wrong.

As you can see from these verses Jehovah hates these things so if , by their reasoning, Jehovah hates these things that must mean He practices these things. That means He is not Holy and prefect.

The more in love you are with another the more your disposition becomes like them and you desire to emulate them. Watch a child try to emulate their father or mother for proof.

It only stands to reason then that what Jehovah hates we hate.

I hate liars, the proud, the thieves, the instigators and mean spirited.

That does not mean I want to kill them, indeed it brings great sorrow to see their lifestyle because it only brings them depression, loneliness, sorrow and pain but that does not mean I excuse it nor tolerate it. When I try to teach them about Christ and they turn their back on Him (it is Christ they are rejecting not you) that is an insult and I turn my back on them. It is a sad thing to do but it is necessary because they are a waste of time and energy.

I pray Jehovah leads me to receptive ones and move on.

These six things the Lord hates; Indeed, seven are repulsive to Him: A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that creates wicked plans, Feet that run swiftly to evil, A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths], And one who spreads discord (rumours) among brothers. Proverbs 6:16-19The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is also a misconception that Jehovah hates the sin but loves the sinner.

That is a flat out lie.

He hates the wicked that refuse to follow His guidance and openly rebel against Him with a holy hate.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me to hate what You hate in a holy manner so as to not allow what is wicked to be tolerated nor welcome in my life. I sincerely request this in the name of the Holy of Holies whom shall judge and reward the wicked according to their evil deeds Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I would Not Look at You.

 Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel]. 2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes it is because of the righteous that the wicked are not punished (at that moment) but they will be punished in Jehovah’s way and in Him time.

Notice that it is because the king of Judah was an obedient servant of Jehovah that the Holy man spoke.

Many times the wicked will receive guidance from the righteous because of their association with a righteous man or woman. They come for advice because of what they want to hear not what they need to hear. When what they need to hear is told to them they hate the messenger and will stubbornly refuse the Godly advice given unto them. The whole meeting is a waste of their time and the man or woman of Gods time. Because they refuse to listen to the Godly advice they meet their doom.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with softly speaking to my heart not to waste my times with the wicked ones who blatantly reject you and walk in the path of wickedness. It saves me so much frustration and sorrow. I extol Thee in the name of He who walks away from those who refuse to open the door of their hearts when He comes a knocking Jesus Christ. Amen.

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