What They Gave to Him, They Give to You.

the-lord-is-my-strength

Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. John 15:20 New International Version

Two words that are oxy morons: Christian and non-suffering.

Many people today have the false belief that when they give their lives to Christ it will be a cake walk and a bed of roses.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

When you commit your live to Christ you can expect to be persecuted.

Many times the worst persecution will come from your family. They will see the change in you and not like it. They will fight you to walk away from Christ. Most times this will mean you must walk away from family. It will be painful.

The same goes for friends. They will be confused as to why you have changes and will viciously mock you because of the change in your life. It will not be pleasant.

You can expect to be treated like a geek at school and work. You can expect people to go out of their way to make your life miserable.

But take heart. We have a savior who has walked that path before you so will comfort you and encourage you.

For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5 New International Version

I know, I have been there. I have had to walk away from family and friends and it was very painful.

I have been in jobs where I felt like I was the only person in the world because no one would talk with me because I was not dishonest. When that happens in a bush camp it can be very lonely.

In my agony I cried out to Jehovah and He sent the Holy Spirit who comforted, strengthened and encouraged me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for comforting and encouraging me during my times of persecution for our relationship. I consider it an honor to suffer for Your awesome name. I give thanks in the name of He who suffered all the way to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Pray For

                                                  

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Why would you want to pray to be accepted into the world when it changes more than I change my underwear and offers no tangible benefits to you,  it only enslaves you being dictated by big business.

I pray to be transformed more and more into my idol, Jesus Christ, so as to life a meaningful life that is close to Him.

I do not pray for Christ to bless me with any endevour of my own undertaking to serve Him but rather for the necessary powers to accomplish to excel at the tasks He has assigned me to do (which is rarely easy) which will glorify Him and bring the little lost sheep to Him.

The thing is, when I reflect back on my service unto Jesus, my Heavenly King, it is astounding what He has accomplished in my life and through my life.

If someone had of told me when I was a child or teenager just what Christ going to succeed at doing in my life and through my life they would have been laughed at because it would have sounded absurd.

“Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you yourself shall be a miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God.”  Phillips Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the truly astounding workmanship You have accomplished with this difficult servant of Yours. You have blessed me with consummating fantastic things both in my life and through my life.

It is the greatest honour to serve one as magnificent as You. I laud You in Your astounding name. Amen

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

The Power to Overcome.

                                        

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The closer we walk with Christ the more the devil will attack us to destroy our loving relationship with Christ. He knows he is going to Hell and wants all the company he can get. Besides, the devil is proud so it irks him to no end to see the righteous worshiping Christ instead of him. Do not worry, Christ defeated satan on the cross and on resurrection day. He is strong enough to help you defeat the wimp satan.

Then there is society.

In todays world the motto is: if it feel s good do it. In the Christian world it says if we love others first we will be filled with love and joy. This convicts those in the world and they will viciously attack us. Do not worry Christ will fill our hearts with peace which will infuriate the world ever more.

The world says: If you just try hard enough you can do whatever you want to do. Christ says we are made to serve Him and allow Him to make the choices in our lives. This convicts the world and so they hate us and cruelly attack us. Do not worry, our Heavenly warrior King provided the tools to defeat them.

On our earthly journey we will always find stiff resistance but God blesses us with the power to overcome. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for blessing me with Your awesome strength, wisdom, provision and protection against the weakling satan and from the superficial attacks by those stumbling about in the dark world.

I extol Thee in the name of He who is the light of the world 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

A Thing to be Looked Through

                                           

 “The kingdom of heaven is like a [very precious] treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid again; then in his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys that field [securing the treasure for himself].” Matthew 13:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How precious is it to you?

Is the Bible precious enough for you to turn off the TV and read its wise words instead of watching that trash on TV?

Is it precious enough for you to get up early in the morning to read instead of sleeping in?

Is it precious enough for you to take time to read its life giving pages instead of listening to that rubbish they call music?

Is it precious enough for you to give up reading the garbage on the internet?

Is it precious enough to give up time at the gym?

Think of what is most precious to you. If it is not the Bible and spending time reading it and discussing it with Jehovah than why do you call yourself a Christian?

“The Bible is like a telescope. If a man looks through his telescope, then he sees worlds beyond; but if he looks at his telescope, then he does not see anything but that. The Bible is a thing to be looked through, to see that which is beyond.” — Phillips Brooks

Prayer: Oh praise You Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for enabling me the supreme honour of digesting the awesome words held with in the most esteemed book there every was, is or will be, Your Holy Bible.

They bless me with wisdom, strength, courage, healing, comfort and encouragement in my daily battle with the dark side.

They also enable me the most supreme esteem of growing every closer in a deep loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Thank you my Heavenly love for this greatest of all exaltation in the name of my loving big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

God’s Primary Objective Is

                                        

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Christian life is a life of sacrifice. Sacrifice of :Not my will but Thy will be done my Love”. This means Jehovah first, others second and self last. This is hard as it involves a lot of hardships along the way.

It involves surrender of our will for His.

It means being obedient unto His direction in our lives whether we like it or not. It means going places we shutter to go to.

 It means doing with out.

It means doing a lot of things which are repulsive to the fleshly desire within us. It is not a one off thing but rather a daily one. One which is required of us every day for the rest of our lives no matter how young or old we are.

“God’s primary objective is not to make our lives easy but to make our lives matter.”Unknown

Prayer: Oh Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) this humble servant always desires to be obedient unto Your decree’s in my life.

When they are hard I humbly pray the Holy Spirit blesses me with the strength to step out into the unknown world You are guiding me in service to.

I thank you Holy Spirit for the strength, encouragement and resources to fulfill my Beloved Kings biddings.

I submissively request this and am in gratitude for this in the name of the King for whom it is such a supreme honour to serve 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

Later I Realized

                              

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 1:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met a few psychiatrists (doing volunteer work at hospitals) that I would not confide in them which is better the red or blue smarties much less serious problems in life. They have a world view which is so wrong it does more harm than good.

Listening to many of these celebrities on talk shows talking about life it is bluntly obvious they need some serious counselling and are definitely not qualified to be counselling others.

The best place to go to whenever you encounter any problems is on your knees. Joseph a son of Jehovah

On the other hand every time I have encountered difficulties in my life and gone to Jesus, He is always available and blesses one hundred percent of the time with the best advice. It may not be what I want to hear but it is always what I need to hear.

As well, He blesses me with the best words of comfort, strength, healing and encouragement that there is none other to compare.

There have been so many times in my difficult life that Jesus was the only one there was to talk with. Then later, I realized He was the only one I needed to talk with. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh how I so reverently thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) fr the wonderful time we share together in such loving conversations every day. They are such a treasure to me. Not just for the encouragement, strength, council and soothing healing they bless me soul with but also for the precious time we just spend in loving communion with each other.

I extol Thee in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Impossible for That.

The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The [omnipotent] Lord has made both of them. Proverbs 20:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The difference between the world and us Christians is that when the hard times come those in the world cry out unto their gods and it is impossible for them to help them.

If you worship money how much good will it do you when your health is plagued by and incurable disease?

If you worship your car how much good will that do you when you encounter personal problems?

If you worship your body how much good will that do you when you are unemployed with no money?

The list goes on.

On the other hand, we who belong unto Christ have the assurance that He always see’s us when we are enduring a crisis and He always hears us when we call out unto Him. He has unlimited resources to help us where no one or nothing else can.

“It is impossible for that man to despair who remembers that his Helper is omnipotent.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength, help, comfort and assurance during the hard times that come my way. It is the only thing that gets me through them but it is also the only blessing required at those times.

I exalt Thee in the name of He who was there to strengthen His disciples 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
