In Faithfulness You Have

repent

“Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn Your statutes. I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are righteous, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.” (Psalm 119:67, 71, 75) The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some times intentionally some times unintentionally, we all stray from Christ. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide you back to Him.

If you are stubborn and obstinate, He loves you too much to allow you to walk down the path of ruin so He will send you affliction to bring you back.

I believe that happens to all of us Christians no matter how long we have walked with our Heavenly best friend (Jesus).

When you go astray Jehovah will afflict you to bring you back to the fold like a good parent disciplines their child when they are naughty. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) for smiting me when I have gone astray of the path You have chosen for this humble servant to take. I understand that sometimes You have to be the oak even though You prefer to be a willow. I exalt You in the name of the King who administers appropriate means to correct His servants Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There Should be a Melting

we are purified

My son, do not reject or take lightly the discipline of the Lord [learn from your mistakes and the testing that comes from His correction through discipline]. Proverbs 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

It is in the fire of the burning off of the dross that my Heavenly Father completely destroyed destructive traits in my disposition. It was extremely painful but I am eternally grateful for Him for blessing me this necessary action.

We all have bad dispositions, both good and bad, we have inherited from our parents. That is natural.

Removing the destructive ones can only be accomplished super naturally. There is no one superior to Jehovahs super powers.

Now notice that I mentioned dispositions. We all have more than one. The more we more have the more we will be put into the fire. The more we resist the fire the longer we will be in it until we surrender to our Lords will and power in our lives.

Speaking personally, I have been put in that fire so many times and been in there so long I am surprised I do not have a permanent sun burn (I used to be a little stubborn).

”For a Christian to defy adversities is to “despise” chastisement. Instead of hardening himself to endure stoically, there should be a melting of the heart.” — Arthur W. Pink

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) with smiting me Your rod of adversity whenever I am a disobedient child of Yours or when it is necessary to purge me of harmful dispositions with in my character. It is necessary so that I may become more pure in Your eyes and for my interaction with those around me. I praise You in the name of He whose anger at wickedness caused Him to strike the unrepentant money changers in Your temple 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

Commit Your Works

Christ, WILL LEAD

Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].Proverbs 16:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Most times I have attempted to accomplish anything on my own it always failed miserably.

When I submitted my plans to Jehovah, He may have suggested not to attempt them.

Being stubborn and independent I refused to listen to Him and the end result was always a disaster. Many times I have submitted my plans to Jehovah and He graciously suggested tweaks to them. I felt insulted and refused to listen to Him. The end result was complete failure.

It took many decades to learn to take every plan to Him and be obedient unto His guidance, no matter how weird or unconventional they were, which has led to successes like I never could have dreamed possible.

If you wish for success in life, first take your plans to He who is the best Guidance Councillor, Jehovah. Then listen and obey Him. This is the sure fire recipe for success in life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your infinite knowledge of the best course of action to take in every aspect of my life. It prevents a lot of disaster and guarantees success. I praise You for this cherished treasure in the name of the wisest Teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.

I Lose but I Win

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

Every time I have gotten into debate with Jehovah I lose but I win.

I debate with Him my wants, many times even using Bible scripture to back up my point of view. He gently but persistently uses different Bible scriptures to see things in a completely different way.

I lose my fleshly desires but win in obediently surrendering unto His will which is the best for me.

As well I am blessed with new insight into my Beloved and a new way of looking at things.

The reward for this is bringing me into a deeper loving relationship with my Heavenly Beloved.

As well He shows me the rewards for being obedient both spiritually and materially that far surpass my fleshly desires. To the world this is foolishness, stupid and down right insane. To those of us who walk close with Christ it makes perfect sense.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with being so patient with me when I am stubborn and slow to grasp what You are trying to teach me. Thank You that when I submit unto Your wise guidance it is always for my best. I praise You in the name of the wisest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Three Reasons.

TRUTHFUL LIPS

Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. John 3:19-20 New King James Version

People refuse to believe the work of Christ in our lives and His calling in our lives for three reasons.

 

The first reason is because they do not want to hear the word of God. They do not want to hear it because it will convict them of their sin and they stubbornly insist on being independent and going their own way.

 

The second reason is because they do not want to hear the gospel their hearts and minds will be closed to what you are sharing with them so they will not understand. What you say will be nonsense to them.

The third reason is because they do not want to hear the word, they will not understand what you are saying so therefore they will not believe what you are saying.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bestow upon me the wisdom, grace and meekness to understand when peoples minds and hearts are closed to Your divine word so as to know when to cease wasting their time and mine. I request this in the name of He whose own townsfolk refused to listen to Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

The Foreskin of Your Heart

DARKNESS

Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer. Deuteronomy 10:16 New King James Version

Circumcise: to cut off the foreskin of a male

Stiff-necked:  unreasonably or perversely unyielding Merriam Webster Dictionary

When the foreskin is removed it is thrown away.

In the same manner we are to throw away our stiff neckness before Jehovah. This means we are not to insist on going our own way and doing our own thing.

It means being submissive and obedient to Jehovahs commands in our life.

The consequences are of supreme importance to us.

If we insist on being stupid and stubborn  (the two go hand in hand) our lives will be met with a lot of difficulty, sadness and pain. I have seen too many fools dumbly insist on repeating the same foolish mistakes again and again and it only brings them to grief. They know they are wrong but too stupid and stubborn to admit it. Our ultimate destination is a very horrible place.

If we are obedient children to our Heavenly Fathers will we will be blessed with a supreme love affair and ultimately a Heavenly home.

Hell is full of men and women who say I did it my way. Heaven is full of men and women that say I did it Christs way.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be a receptive and obedient child of Your. I humbly request this in the name of He who was obedient all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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