A closer walk with our beloved friend.

All in One Word.

Today our world is plagued by rage and depression. It oozes into every cranny of society, rich and poor, man and woman, of every colour and nationality.

Everyone is asking why.

It can all be summed up in one word: unforgiveness.

When we refuse to forgive someone for an offense they have committed upon us it seeps into every aspect of our life. That is why there is so much road rage, why there is so much drug abuse, why there is so much failed marriage, why there is so much in fighting in families.

Why do folks refuse to forgive?

Because, we are greedy.

Instead of leaving justice in Jehovahs capable hands we demand the right for blood by our own.

Unforgiveness is a form of selfishness. We demand our pound of flesh.Joseph a son of Jehovah

The cure for this selfishness can only be found by laying our grievances at the feet of Jesus and trusting Him to deliver true justice in His time and in His way.

Speaking from personal experience, Christs justice is far more terrible than anything we could administer to the unrepentant.

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

In the mean time, we are to pray for the offended to come to repentance for their own good.

If possible stay away from abusive folks and if you have to deal with them do so graciously but firmly. Let them know their attitude and behavior is not welcome nor tolerated. Therefore, the relationship shall remain formal, but, if they repent the door of friendship shall be opened

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohe Tishuathi (Psalms 18:46&51:14) – GOD of My selfishnessSalvation bless me to always have a forgiving heart towards others as You do towards me. Please bless me with the wisdom, strength and provision to walk away from habitual  abusers and to pray for them to come unto repentance as well. I humbly request this in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible 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

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

Considering the Magnitude of Its Importance

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 And just as it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment. Hebrews 9:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unaided human reason, we repeat, never did, never can, assure us that there is a future state at all.

There is life after death, we all know it.

What will our future look like when we have passed on to the other side ( when we depart our fleshly body in death and enter into the unknown eternity of the spiritual world)?

All human reason and imagination is is foolishness and imagination.

Considering that our presence in this world we be for an eternity we had better go to the most reliable source. That is not going to physics, or to new age teachers or psychologists, nor to scientists.

There is only One whose absolute truth will bless us or curse us with a fainting glimpse of our eternal destiny.

His revelation will either fill our spirit with joy, anticipation and assurance or it will envelope our spirits with terror, anguish and anger. His name of course is Jehovah. He will and does pull back the curtain of eternity to give us a glimpse of our eternal home, whether it be Heaven or whether it be Hell.

But now [that extraordinary purpose and grace] has been fully disclosed and realized by us through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus who [through His incarnation and earthly ministry] abolished death [making it null and void] and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 2 Timothy 1:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Considering the magnitude of its importance of eternity to us, we had better listen and take heed to what the Holy Spirit teaches us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with the incontestable truth that only comes from You. Thank you for teaching it to my limited mind in a way that the truth can be grasped and understood. Thank you for assisting me in incorporating this truth into my daily life. Yours is the only school that I am addicted to attending every day because of its amazing lessons learned at the feet of the wisest teach, the Holy Spirit. I exalt Thee in the name of the supreme Teacher 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

War Against the Soul.

SINFUL DESIRE

Abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. 1 Peter 2:11 New King James Version

                                                                                                    

If you are older like me you have witnessed the spiraling descension of our western society into a cesspool. In our  music, TV shows and movies morality has taken back seat to the shock effect to addict people to the filth. Look at many of todays singers when they were just starting out and portrayed as sweet and innocent. As that became passé they became more and more depraved to stay on top. 

                                                                        

Society thinks it is cool to emulate them.                                                          

Look at the movies and listen to popular songs. There is so much filth in it that laughingly is called entertainment.                                                            

It encourages premarital sex, why do they not have interviews with people who have contracted syphilis (we have a run for aids why not a run for syphilis which is much more common and much more deadly?) or had abortions and their lives ruined because of this lifestyle? 

                                                                         

Seeking after self instead of seeking to better society. Why do they not talk about how many suicides there are because of loneliness?               

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                        

Materialism which says buy this and you will be happy.                                 

Why do they not have interviews with folks that have had their lives and marriages destroyed by bankruptcy?                                                                     

Indeed is not every society in the world today facing eminent bankruptcy on a scale never witnessed before in history because of this empty “happiness”?                                                                                          

Is not every government in the world facing bankruptcy because their populace lives by the entitlement theory and to stay in power the politicians give the people what they want and not what they need?                                                                      

“We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves to be like other people.”  Arthur Schopenhauer   

                                                                                                         

On the other hand when you seek after Christ you are in the spiritual world. In this world you experience His love and divine joy which nothing of the flesh can even begin to compare with.      

                                  

I would not give up one moment of my Christian life for a lifetime of fleshly desires being fulfilled. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (god is love) for blessing me with the most treasured gift ever possible, Your divine love. I praise You in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.                                              

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

The New is Here!

WORK IN PROGRESS

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version

We see on TV all the time: the new and improved!! Which I do not believe for a minute and it is my personal opinion it is just a gimmick.

When we welcome Christ into our lives it is the real thing.

When we accept Christ into our lives we the Holy Spirit begins a transformation in us.

It is like the caterpillar going into the cocoon to come out a beautiful butterfly. Now when the caterpillar is in the cocoon you can bet it is going through many struggles in its transformation.

 

So too it is with us.

Just because we have accepted Christ does not mean an instant change. It slowly takes place and the wonderful and amazing thing is, is that the transformation lasts until we either go to the other side or until Christ comes to take us to our Heavenly home.

Now do not be surprised if what you once enjoyed you not have no interest in and in many instances will find repugnant.

Do not be surprised when those around you do not understand the change and in many cases mock you and distance themselves from you. They are in your old materialistic world, but now you are in Christs spiritual world.

He has been transforming me for over twenty years and I am still a work in progress.

Yes it has cost me in many relationships that I was close with but that has been replaced by a loving bond with fellow members of Christs family that is so much deeper and rewarding than those left behind.

 

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Christ Pyrrand (Jesus my friend) for blessing me with the most truly awesome and life fulfilling relationship and close bond with You my most amazing friend. It is such a privilege to know that I am THEOPHILUS= friend of God I exalt You in Your sweet loving name. Amen.

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