They go Together.

laugh at fools

 A rebellious and stubborn people, Who walk in the way that is not good, [following] after their own thoughts and intentions Isaiah 65:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Supidness and stubbornness go together like peanut butter and jam.

I know a woman that cannot eat greasy food, if she does she violently vomits after just one bite. One day we were at a take away and she ordered greasy chicken. I told her not to purchase it or she would become violently ill. She insisted that that would not happen this time. As soon as we settled in her van and she took one bite she swung the door open and puked her eyeballs out.

You see, she was stubborn.

She knew she was not to eat that junk yet insisted that this time she would not get sick (even though she did every time previous to that). That was very stupid because she paid a very dear price for her stubbornness.

How many times has Jehovah instilled in us not to do something yet we stubbornly and stupidly return to our wicked ways. When the disaster comes crashing down on us because we were stupid and stubborn and refuse to listen to Jehovah do we not blame Him?

How stupid is that?

Stupidness and stubbornness is also arrogant.

When I was a tree planter and would try to help the rookies who knew nothing of planting there were some who insisted on doing it their way. Even though, that meant they worked just as hard but made a penitence of money that the rookies did that were respectful and listened and obeyed as they were shown. The dumbo’s blame everyone and everything but themselves for their disastrous planting season.

How many times has Jehovah tried to show us a better way to live yet we give Him the finger and go out and live how we see fit. When disaster comes (and it always does) we blame everyone but ourselves.

The stupid and stubborn are self condemned to a life of misery and suffering. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:I thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with patience and a strong arm when I am a stupid, stubborn obstinate child of Yours. I know You only desire what is best for me and must use strong methods when I am a disobedient child of Yours. I praise You in the name of He who was strong with His disciples when necessary Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

That Which is Not

PROVISION

“Why do you spend money for that which is not bread, And your earnings for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight in abundance. Isaiah 55:1-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus is the bread of life.

Why do you waste your time and money on things that bring no lasting satisfaction to your life? Indeed, how many have gone into debt (becoming slaves to their masters, the banks, in a feeble attempt to satisfy their fleshly desires)?

We need to devour the word of Jehovah like a starving man a smorgasbord every day. It is good for our bodies, minds and spirits. Jehovah joyfully supplies this feast in abundance to all who ask of Him.

Where can you find this smorgasbord?

Why your Bible of course. It has a feast of wisdom, dainties of joy, strength for those who are weak, healing medicine for those suffering heart ache and soothing comfort for those going though rough times. It is truly the best meal you can consume every day.

Consuming a daily meal of Jehovahs word is the most nutritious and best meal of the day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (Jehovah our Nourisher ) for blessing me with the most delicious, nutritious meal there could ever be (the Bible). I love to daily gorge myself on its awesome delicacies. I thank you in the name of He who provided some of the best fancies of the meal Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

The Highlands of Affliction.

CHRISTS STRENGTH

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version  

Those who say that being a Christian is easy are definitely not a Christian.

Being a Christian means a lifetime of suffering. We will be rejected, mocked and be going through constant trials and tribulations.

This is good because it makes us dependent upon Jehovah which draws us ever closer unto Him.

As well, it strengthens our Christian walk.

It is also good because when we encounter hurting folks we can share with them the amazing things Jehovah has done through our tough times.

The other benefit is that we will not desire for this world but rather for the home in which our Heavenly Father has prepared for us.

“The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to make through the tough times and for using those tough times to strengthen Your loving child and well as the life changing lessons learned through these fiery times. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered the worst affliction for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

He is My Source Of.

heavenly retriement home

 For to me, to live is Christ [He is my source of joy, my reason to live] and to die is gain [for I will be with Him in eternity]. If, however, it is to be life here and I am to go on living, this will mean useful and productive service for me; so I do not know which to choose [if I am given that choice].  But I am hard-pressed between the two. I have the desire to leave [this world] and be with Christ, for that is far, far better Philippians 1:21 23   The Holy Bible Amplified Version         

Do not cry when a loved one is dying, they are going to a far better place. It amazes me when folks what to keep a suffering loved one alive. I think keeping suffering loved ones alive is selfish and cruel. I have watched loved ones die a slow agonizing death from diseases and let me tell you, it is no picnic for wither them or their loved ones.

Contrast that with being in communion with other saints in Christs kingdom in the second Heaven (the Bible mentions three Heavens and when those in Christ die before His return they go to the second Heaven awaiting their masters return to His Kingdom here on earth, which is one of the other Heavens).

I look forward to physical death to be in spiritual Heaven with Christ. Until that blessed event happens I shall do the work He has assigned to me with all the gusto I have. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh my cherished Jehovah Heseh (God is love) how my heart aches to be with the supreme love of my life for eternity. While waiting may I always preform my duties unto You with all the gusto there is in me. I pray this in the name of my best friend that I shall spend eternity together with in pure delight Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

There is Neither Coincidence Nor Accidents In

follow your ways

 

 My times are in Your hands Psalm 31:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is neither coincidence nor accidents in our Christian lives. Everything is either by the hand of Jehovah or by His allowance.

It was not Jehovahs hand that caused Jobs sufferings but by His allowance. It was done to teach Job and important lesson (not to depend upon His own righteousness to be in favour of Jehovah).

The plagues upon Egypt were not coincidence or a freak act of nature but by the hand of Jehovah. They were to exhibit His power to both the Egyptians and the Israelites.

Jesus’ healing of the lepers was neither coincidence or a freak act of nature but by the hand of Jehovah. The military leader of the conquering army that was destroying Israel washing himself in the Jordan River to cleanse his leprosy was was neither coincidence or a freak act of nature but by the hand of Jehovah.

These are real events and they continue on to this day both in your life as well as mine. To write unexplained events in our lives as accidents or coincidence is an insult to Jehovah. The world may believe this lie but Christians know better.

“There are no accidents in the life of the Christian.” — Rowland Bingham

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me to share Your dumb founding ways to my life which although they are confusing at the time reveal Your unmatched wisdom. I praise You in the name of He who left the scribes and pharisee’s scratching their heads with His unorthodox ways Jesus Christ. Amen

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

They Want Something From Him.

WORSHIP

 And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross daily[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]. Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many times have you seen children give a grandma a great big hug because she bought them something they wanted? They do not love grandma, they love the gift she has bought them.

How many folks only love Jesus because they want something from Him?

How many are willing to suffer for Him and because of Him?

Look around you and think of what is near and dear to your heart. Would you put it on the alter and sacrifice it to Christ (if it is someone or a pet, please do not physically sacrifice it)? By that, I mean would you give it up in order to become a servant of the most high King? So we will say you are living in a nice home in a nice neighborhood, if Christ called upon you to sell the house, give the money to a charity of His choosing and live in a ghetto, would you do it?

Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, including me.

Would you be obedient unto His commands?

If not, then you are not a true Christian but a marshmallow one. Think of the one you love the most.

If becoming a true Christian meant that they would hate you and disown you, would you sacrifice that relationship for Christ? That means you will never see them or speak to them for the rest of your life. Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, I have witnessed it numerous times in Asia.

“Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly Kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many desirous of consolation, but few of tribulation. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities befall them.” — Thomas à Kempis

Prayer: Thank you for the privilege of enduring numerous trials and tribulations in my relationship with You Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend). It has blessed me with coming into and ever deeper everlasting loving relationship with You my best friend because of these sufferings. I exalt You in Your wonderful name. Amen.

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

Submits To and Delights In

CHRIST'S PEACE

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

Godliness means to live a life that Jehovah has directed us to live. When we do so we have a great source of contentment.

We are grateful and content with the daily blessings Jehovah showers upon us instead of worrying that we do not have enough life those of the world.

We are secure and contentment that we have a loving caring Heavenly Father that will always take care of us so we do not need to worry about losing a job or getting a sickness.

We sleep contentedly and peacefully at night knowing that we are in His loving tender care instead of suffering insomnia unnecessarily worrying about things we have no control over to begin with.

We need not worry about what is going to happen in life like those in the world because we know when we submit unto our Heavenly Father, He will always walk with us in the path He has chosen for us to take in this life.

“Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.” — Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for faithfully providing for me in all manner of my life. It has blessed me with a Heavenly contentment which only You can provide. I exalt You in the name of He who always provided for His disciples as He walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

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