A closer walk with our beloved friend.


They Begin to Grow.  

You, therefore, will be perfect growing into spiritual maturity both in mind and character, actively integrating godly values into your daily life. Matthew 5:48 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Growing into spiritual maturity and character and integrating godly values into our lives is an act of worship towards our Heavenly Beloved.

We submit unto His molding us into the children He desires us to be because we trust Him and love Him, which is an act of worship. Because we love Him we desire to be the children He wishes us to be which is another act of worship.

If there is no worship there is no desire to grow or to continue to grow.

There are times when growth is easy but it is in the times when growth is difficult that we show our trust and submissiveness unto Him that that is an act of worship which please Christ.

“It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow.”  Calvin Coolidge                       

 Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory ) for growing into the child You desire me to be through my worshiping You the greatest super star of all. I exalt Thee in the name of my best friend whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

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



Must Mean Everything to Us.

Therefore I urge you,brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.Romans 12:1 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Most western Christians have it backwards. They falsely believe that Jesus is here to serve them. They only call on Him when they want something from Him whether it is to solve a problem or whether it is because they want something from Him. When He blesses them with their request they are rude and ungrateful and do not even thank Him.

That is not the Christian life.

The Christian live is to dedicate ones self to Christ in serving Him. His will is to always supersede theirs. We are to lay our desires upon the alter and to completely surrender to their will in their lives. After all we were created to do specific works He has prepared for us to do.

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

The Christian motto is to be: Christ first, others second, self last. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When others see our sacrificial works they will become intrigued and ask us why  we live such a life. This will be our greatest testimony and evangelism of all. We are to be a living testimony for Him.

Do not tell me of your Christ, show me Him in your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Christianity must mean everything to us before it can mean anything to others.” — Donald Soper              

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) my eternal King for the supreme privilege of being Your humble servant. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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


The Christian Creed P L O


 “You will pray to Him, and He will hear you, And you will pay your vows. Job 22:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Why do you ask if you do not desire to obey?

So many folks turn to Jehovah to solve their problems. They want Him to tell them what they want to hear, not what they need to hear.

So we will say someone is asking Jehovah for help with their finances and He informs them to stop wasting money buying expensive coffee in coffee shops and they will not only have enough money to pay their bills but will also be able to save some as well. They ignore His advice and then cry because they cannot pay their bills and ask why He has not helped them.

It is plain stupidity.

If you really wish for Jehovah to help in your life you must alter it in the manner in which He guides you or your are wasting your time as well as His.

“We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another.” — William Law

Pray We must pray for wisdom in regards to our problem

Listen We must listen to His voice

Obey We must have faith in Him and obey His guidance, even when it does not agree with what our desires are or if it does not make sense to us. Following this method has greatly improved my life in every aspect, mental, physical and spiritual. It will yours as well. I do not promise Jehovah does and He has 100 % success rate.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the wonderful privileged of obeying my Kings instructions because I know You love me and only want the best for me. I exalt You in Your magnificent name. Amen.

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



Than You Thought.


For You meet him with blessings of good things. Psalm 21:3 Holy Bible New King James Version

There is an ad on TV that says:” You are richer that you thought.”

Truer words have never been said.

Every day make a list of all the blessings

Jehovah has blessed you with both big and small. Reflect on them at the end of the day and thank Jehovah for them (thank Him as He blesses us through out the day as well). It is a great way to get to sleep. At the end of the month read your listings and you will be surprised at just how wealthy you are.

One of the by products of this is just how much more of a positive attitude you have and how diminished your problems have become and how little of a Negative Nellie you are and how much of a Positive Pete you are.

“The poor man thought, “If I had a penny for every time I knew the Lord blessed me I would be a millionaire.” Then he continued, “But if I had a penny for evertime the Lord actually blessed me, I would be the richest man in the world…and I believe I already am.”” — Bob Smith

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for abundantly supplying all my daily needs both spiritual and physical. I praise You in the name of my Savior whom I need so very much Jesus Christ. Amen.

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



They are Still Alive.

In Hades (the realm of the dead), being in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom (paradise). Luke 16:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In all of Jesus’ parables He always explained what they meant but here we do not see any explanation. That is because in the Old Testament it was explained numerous times the life after death . That there is a place where the spirit goes after death. It is not Heaven or Hell but a place where the spirit awaits final judgment. Therefore those that have died, they are still alive in spirit. The Jews knew this so there was no need for Jesus to explain it to them.

This also shows the charlatans that claim they can talk with the dead.

Jehovah places them in that place where they shall remain until the Day of Judgment.

There is no communion with the dead with the living.

It also shows how those that claim that all those who die go to a pleasant place after death. They claim there is no punishment for the wicked ones deeds in his life on earth.

When we die there is still a continuing of life in the spirit. One is a place of pleasant experience, the other other one of torment.

The question is which place are you going to spend time in until the final judgment.

Then Abraham breathed his last and he died at a good old age, an old man who was satisfied [with life]; and he was gathered to his people [who had preceded him in death]. Genesis 25:8Holy Bible Amplified Version

This states that Abraham went to his people. How could he go there if there is no living spirits to go to?

“Oh, that You would hide me in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead) Job 14:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

To the people of the Old Testament Sheol is a place where the spirit goes which means that death does not terminate human existence.

So yes brothers and sisters, your loved ones, they are still alive, not physically but spiritually. No we cannot talk with them nor they with us.

If they died in Christ that should fill us with joy because we will see them in Heaven when we get there and we shall know them and they shall know us. Think of someone dear to you that has gone on a journey and has been gone for a year or more. Think of how your heart dances for joy when they come home and you have not seen them for a long time. That is what it will be like when we are reunited with them in Heaven.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless me with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and strength to educate others that there is eternal damnation for those who reject you. On the other hand I daily eagerly anticipate dwelling in Your house for eternity and being in Your loving presence of infinity. I humbly ask 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.

The Champion Worry Wort.

 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I used to be the World Champion Worry Wort. You name it and I would worry about it. I swear I used to worry about if I did not fart during the day (really). It caused endless sleepless nights. It is surprising I did not have ulcers or a heart attack. The stress meter would be on overload.

As my walk with Christ slowly matured more and more was put into His capable hands, starting off small and gradually enlarging as the walk with Him became more and more secure more and more was surrendered to Him. The end result was a good nights sleep ( which is enjoyed almost every night now).

There is more and more serenity in uncertain circumstances.

There now is amazing physical, mental and spiritual health.

Now there are times when there are uncertain circumstances and or situations that arise that is completely out of my control and a panic attack begins. That is when I sprint for a Bible, a quiet place to be with my Beloved and allow Him to comfort and assure me that every thing is under control. The stress meter goes dead and the worry melts away.

“Never dwell on the tomorrow; remember, that it’s God’s and not ours.” Edward B. Pusey

Prayer: Oh a deep heartfelt Thank you my cherished Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace in every aspect of my life because I know You love me, You care, You help me and guide my steps. You are always there through all my difficulties and sorrows. You are the greatest. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

With the Strength Of.

So he got up and ate and drank, and with the strength of that food he travelled forty days and nights to Horeb (Sinai), the mountain of God. 1 Kings 19:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Before Jehovah sends us to where He has something important to share with us He knows we need to be nourished. Most times it will not be physical nourishment but spiritual and mental.

From personal experience it can be a couple of hours or days or months and in some instances it took years. Jehovah is in no hurry and knows what you need to be ready to hear what He desires to share with you. The amount of time it takes depends upon you. It is important so He is in no hurry.

Notice that it was Mount Sinai which is the same place Moses received the Ten Commandments.

So yes where Jehovah is sending you is someplace quiet and isolated where there will be no interruption. He needs you to be in communion with Him because He has something important to discuss with you.

For me it was deep in the forest in a very isolated place. And yes, it was very important what we discussed. It could not have happened any other place that that isolated area. The amount of time spent in that place was three months.

That may not happen to you but you can be assured it will be in an isolated place and it is important what He has to say to you.

We need to go on Gods time not our own. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with Your Divine help to be prepared for the time in which You chose to speak important matters to me in Your Holy place. I exalt Thee in the name of He who had the strength to go to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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