It is Indeed the Coldest and Darkest

GODS ASSURANCE

 

Just Before. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. Matthew 14:25 The Holy Bible New International Version

Being an avid outdoors man all my life I can certainly attest to the fact that it is indeed the coldest and darkest just before dawn.

From decades of experience it seems to me like Jesus always comes to us in our trials and tribulations, sorrows and danger when it is its most intense.

I think the reason for that is most of us chose to face our giants alone being independent.

It is only as they get progressively worse and all else fails that we go to Christ.

One of the benefits of this is our great and deep appreciation for His rescue.

Unfortunately for us the lesson of depending upon Him for salvation must be repeated numerous times before we accept the fact that it is unto Christ that we must always go whenever any trouble comes our way.

Finally learning that lesson and going to Christ first has prevented my storms from becoming full blown destructive typhoons.

Just remember Jesus has been there, Jesus cares. He is always willing to help but we must first call out to Him and then obey His instruction for us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:18 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Jesus’ love is the bright healing light that evaporates that darkness of sorrow, worry, pain, loneliness and fear. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with being the beacon of love, strength and assurance during my darkest hours. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

That I Encountered Jesus.

GOD IS WITH US

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”John 16:33 New Living Translation Bible

Although being a Christian for many decades it was not until I endured my crucifixion (We all worship something equal to or more that Christ, in order to be used by Christ this must be crucified. I do not take that lightly. It is the most horrible and excruciating pain and agony you will ever experience. But, on the other side of it you will thank Jehovah for it every day. I do) that I encountered Jesus.

It was during a church service and there was a brilliant light that completely encompassed me. A voice came out of the light and assured me: “I love you and am with you always. I will never leave you nor forsake you. “ There was a washing, like being under a cool waterfall on a blistering hot day of all the pain, hurt, and anguish completely away. It was the most refreshing and cleansing experience ever experienced. That encounter changed my life forever and shall never forget it.

Yes, I had been blessed countless times with the Holy Spirits guidance and strengthening, comforting and encouraging and still am BUT, that could never compare with the encounter with Jesus. I greatly appreciated and still do, the Holy Communion with the Holy Spirit but the encounter with Jesus was WOW.

 “One encounter with Jesus Christ is enough to change you, instantly, forever.” — Luis Palau

Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the amazing privilege of encountering You so many times. Each encounter leaves me desiring to never leave Your presence.

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

Only to Learn That

JESUS CAN

 They were shaken because He was indignant and angry. Psalm 18:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times in our walk with Christ we have the wrong foundations. Because of this our house is unstable and pron to destruction when affliction, trials, trouble and sorrows come unto us.

In order to prevent this from happening Jehovah must tear down those foundations.

Working in construction building houses I learned that everything must be lined up in building the foundation. If it does not the house is faulty and pron to demolishing when storms hit. That is why most houses built about a hundred years ago are still solid while new houses have so much problems. Those a hundred years ago built the houses to last so they took extra care in how they were built. Many today just slap houses together as cheaply as they can get away with to make profit. When they storms hit we see the end results of who was the better builder.

Jesus is the builder of our house (our spirits) and will not allow faulty construction of it. When we start to stray from the masters architects plans He shakes the house to reconstruct it.

He has shook many of my foundational beliefs to get rid of them because they were hampering my walk with Him. I praise Him for doing it.

“We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking only to learn that it is God shaking them.” — Charles West

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kanna (The Lord is Jealous) for being so jealous as to never allow another architect to alter the plans You have for this child’s building You so loving built. Thank you for destroying any layers which will cause this building to collapse into complete and total destruction. I praise You in the name of the master builder Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Doubt My.

                                        

I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you]. John 15:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All of us who have walked the Christian walk have from time to time faced uncertainty whether Jesus loved us or even if He was real. As we mature we grow more and more assured of it.

Many times we go through intense trails and tribulations, sorrows and times of famine. We wonder whether Jesus has deserted us, whether we have angered Him and cry out to Him.

We are met with silence.

Or, so it seems.

When these events have passed and we reflect upon them we can see Jesus’ firm but gentle hand guiding us through them as well as providing provision during them.

It has occurred to me on numerous occasions and only caused my faith in Him to grow stronger and stronger.

“As sure as God puts His children in the furnace he will be in the furnace with them. Charles H Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with a Divine love which none other can compare. Thank you that You will never leave me nor desert me even when many times it seems as if You are absent from me. I praise You in the name of my ever present best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Where is Your Tabernacle?

                           

The tabernacle is the meeting place with Jehovah. It is a special place with no interruptions and is quiet.

Mine is in my tent in the back yard.

It is here we talk one on one, it is here He speaks to me as I read His holy word.

It is here He listens while I sing love songs unto Him.

It is here that I take shelter from the trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

It is here I thank Him in the morning for all His blessings great and small. It is here I say good morning my Love, I love you every morning.

It is here that I thank Him for all blessings great and small that He has abundantly blessed me with throughout the day.

It is here I say good night, I love You my cherished one before going peacefully off to sleep at night.

We all need our own tabernacles where we can be alone with Jehovah every day.

Where is yours?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with a sacred place in which to commune with You. It is one of my most cherished blessings. I exalt You for this holy gift in the name of Your best gift unto me Jesus Christ. Amen. Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year.

The Lamp Of.

                                       

The spirit (conscience) of man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching and examining all the innermost parts of his being. Proverbs 20:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no excuse.

The most popular excuse is: “I did not know.” and “It is not my fault.”.

That is a flat out lie.

The Holy Spirit comes to us all, believers and unbelievers alike and speaks to us as to what is right and what it wrong.

The difference is that the wise listen and obey the Holy Spirits advice and avoid a lot of hardship, trouble and sorrows.

The foolish arrogantly ignore it. Indeed, many times they drown Him out with loud music or any thing else to deafen their ears and minds unto Him. The irony is that the Holy Spirits advice for us is for our own good and we ignore it at our own peril as the fools discover the hard way. What is truly amazing is that the fools refuse to learn from the error of their ways and continue on their evil, wicked ways writing off their experiences as “just a coincidence”.

It is a wise man that listens to God, it is a foolish man that pays the price for ignoring Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with always speaking to me to guide my life in every aspect of my life. I cherish this Supreme advice. I extol Thee in the name of the best Adviser Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Blessed is Any Weight

                                                  

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail). Psalm 55:22
Holy Bible, Amplified Version

“Blessed is any weight, however overwhelming, which God has been so good as to fasten with His own hand upon our shoulders.” — F. W.Faber

Now why in the world wold any weight be considered a blessing?

How many folks forget all about Jehovah during the good times but go a running to Him during the bad ones?

I believe the weight that endures over a sustained amount of time is the best.

The reason?

Those who are shallow in their relationship with Christ will quickly fall away when they do not receive instant relief. They will go to worldly councilors which is little if any use to them. They will cry out to their government to save them and the government shall be unable to assist them.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen, But we have risen and stood upright. Psalm 20: 7-8 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Those whose hearts are open to Jehovah will experience the blessing of His hand in their experience and their faith (which means trust) will grow. So too, will their respect, love and admiration towards our loving Father in Heaven.

It is in our hard times that we grow the most and come the closest unto Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength to continue on through the trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares that come my way. Thank you that You walk through them with me. I praise You in the name of the greatest source of strength of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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