Not Until We Have Become Humble and Teachable

follow your ways

 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom; A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him.

There have been so many times in my life when I see someone new at a job doing something wrong or doing it in a difficult way. I try to teach them the correct way or an easier way and they look at me with contempt like they know so much more than me. That is very rude arrogant and disrespectful. The end result for them is of course disastrous.

So too it is with us.

When the Holy Spirit tries to teach us a better way at life and we arrogantly contemptuously ignore Him and do the exact opposite, not only is the result disastrous but it is arrogant and disrespectful towards Him. Not only must we listen to Jehovah when He speaks to us but we are to be obedient as well. We must admit and submit to His supreme intelligence over our feeble minuscule understanding. Otherwise, what is the sense of Him speaking with us?

“Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty…acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always listen, understand and obey Your voice because I know You only want what is best for me because You love me and care about me. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always listened to His Heavenly Fathers voice Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

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

Let Us Also Work for It

HARD WORK

 And He did this to fully equip and perfect the saints (God’s people) for works of service. Ephesians 4:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I remember when being a tutor in China oh so many times a Chinese would come to me and beg me to help them pass an exam so they could get a visa to Canada. When I asked them when they exam was, most times their reply was in a month. As their level of English was very low they were informed that it would take a lot of work but could be accomplished. Their reaction was that as the teacher that was my responsibility. In other words, they expected me to do all the work while they put minimal effort into the task. Of course they failed miserably and of course their reaction was always they same. They blamed me.

How many have the same attitude towards Jehovah.

Say there is going to be a test at school. Instead of studying for the test the night before you fervently pray for Jehovah to give you the knowledge to pass the test. When you fail you cry baby to Jehovah that it is His fault when in reality it is your own fault for being so lazy and irresponsible.

Here is the way it works properly.

Sometimes Jehovah will do the work for you because the task is too great. This is to reveal His power and wisdom to us which brings praise, respect and adoration.

Sometimes we have to work in conjunction with the Holy Spirit. This is to teach us to put forward and effort while trusting in the Holy Spirits guidance, no matter how unconventional it is.

Sometimes Jehovah provides the tools but we have to do the work. This is to teach us to take responsibility and to teach us to have confidence in the skills Jehovah has blessed us with.

“Whatsoever we beg of God, let us also work for it.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Thank you ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for blessing me with being able to determine which form of work is necessary for me to accomplish the task You have assigned for me to do in my privilege of being my Beloved King Jesus in Heavens free will servant. I exalt You in His magnificent name. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Everything We Need to Have A

i love you my lord

 And make the Almighty your gold And your precious silver Job 22:25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

Before we had this monopoly money (worthless paper money created through the fiat system) gold and silver were the universal standard of trade. The more you had the richer you were.

As appealing as it is to have a life filled with physical luxury it is more important to have the crown of righteousness placed upon our head in our Heavenly home by our Beloved King, Jesus Christ.

One time on a talk show on the idiot box (TV) there was a successful athlete who was rich beyond measure married to a stunning beauty living in a luxurious mansion. At the end of his career on this show he talked about all of his championships and awards and his luxurious lifestyle, looked at the man emceeing the show and asked: “Is this all there is? Now what? There has to be something more.”

Yes there is and He is the fulfillment of everything we need to have a meaningful life. His name is Jesus. Once you are blessed with a relationship with Him, there is nothing to compare in the world and there is nothing more you either want or desire.

“Nothing teaches us about the preciousness of the Creator as much as when we learn the emptiness of everything else.” ― Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for revealing to me the riches wealth of us is that of a loving relationship with You. There is nothing to compare with it. I praise You in the name whose friendship is the most priceless treasure I can ever be blessed with, 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

Keep One Thing in View Forever.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

 Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation. Psalm 25:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Truth is not relative in that what is true for you may not necessarily be true for me.

The Bible is the ultimate truth and no one can change it. If it does not suit you, you can reject it but you cannot change it.

There are so many out there telling you to believe in this or believe in that but if it does not line up with the Bible it is a lie.

Societies opinions change quicker and more frequently than you change your underwear.

The Bible does not give opinion but the ultimate truth, when you follow its advice you need never worry about others opinions. This is especially important in relation to your morals, behavior and thoughts in context to your own life and your attitude and behavior in society.

“Keep one thing in view forever- the truth; and if you do this, though it may seem to lead you away from the opinion of men, it will assuredly conduct you to the throne of God.” — Horace Mann

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with Thy Divine truth to guide me through my life. It has prevented much difficulties, guided me through many difficulties and has been a beacon for me to follow in my life. I praise You in the name of the Light of the world 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

It is a Dangerous Lie.

                    

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His[One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I hear so many preachers repeat this mantra to the masses: believe that God loves them unconditionally.

Please do not preach nor teach this filthy lie. In doing so you are condemning many to Hell. And I am sure you will answer for that. That is a dangerous lie.

So you think a pimp that forces young girls into prostitution will be unconditionally loved by Christ and allowed into Heaven?

Do you believe that some drug pusher that lives off of others misery will be unconditionally loved by God?

Do you believe these musilms that chop off Christians heads or burn them alive will be welcomed into Heaven?

Do you believe that any Sunday Christian who only makes a show of being a Christian on Sunday while living in the world the rest of the week will be welcomed at Heaven gate?

Do you believe the “gimmis” (those that only talk with Jehovah when they want something from Him; gimme this, gimme that” will be welcomed at Heavens Gate?

The more you read your Bible the more you will see conditions.

If.

If you obey my commands you will be blessed, if you refuse to obey them you will be cursed. This is in both the New Testament and the Old Testament.

As in any family there are rules and they must be obeyed.

“If you [really] love Me, you will keep and obey My commandments. John 14:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In Christ’s family the obedient ones gain a Heavenly home. The disobedient ones are condemned to a Hellish one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) bless me to wisely, gracefully teach those misguided children that there is no free entry into the gates of Heaven but the privilege is only gained by being an obedient servant unto You our Heavenly King. In Your majestic name I humbly pray. Amen

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

It is in the Past that I see Myself Today.

                                       

You shall teach them diligently to your children Deuteronomy 6:7 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One of the interesting things in tracing your family history is that it is in the past that I see myself today. It is a repeated pattern of dispositions that is in the genes that is passed on from generation to generation. In my case one side of the family is true villains while the other are saints.

Here is the amazing thing though, when we dedicate our lives unto Christ He burns off the dross (the bad dispositions) while replacing them with Godly ones. It is not something that is accomplished in a day or week. Sometimes it takes decades and even then some bad dispositions remain. I believe that the bad dispositions are permitted to remain so that we are dependent upon Jehovah to keep them under control.

“One must always maintain one’s connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it.” Gaston Bachelard

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with sharing Your knowledge about my past with me to explain my dispositions to me. Thank you for working with me to burn off the dross of the undesirable inherited traits and replacing them with Your Divine traits to mold me into a Holy child of Yours. I exalt Thee in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Being Transformed Into

 

And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our Savior and King, He sends the Holy Spirit to transform us from being a dirty filthy rag into a new beautiful Divine creation.

This does not mean that when we accept Christ there will be a hallelujah moment and then we can continue on as we were before.

It does mean a lifetime commitment unto His will in our lives. It means allowing Him to burn off the dross (bad habits and attitudes which hinder our relationship with Him and our maturity in our Christian walk).

Speaking from experience it is not pleasant but you will praise Him for it every day after its completion. It does not mean we are to sit on our butts and expect the Holy Spirit to do all the work. It does mean a lifetime commitment to making the effort ourselves to become Holy children of God. Many times we will be expected to make the effort by ourselves as we mature because that is a process of maturity as well.

“God invites us to come as we are, not to stay as we are.”Tim Keller

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit M’Kaddess (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with teaching me and helping me to grow into a sanctified child of my Beloved and to lead a life pleasing unto Him. I exalt Thee in the name of He who showed us all how to lead a sanctified life pleasing unto our loving Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. Amen

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

His Favorite Abiding Place Is.

My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our dwelling place with him.John 14:23 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as the atoning sacrifice the Holy Spirit comes and dwells within our hearts. He is there to comfort us, teach us, guide us, encourage us, strengthen us, calm us, assure us and correct us.They are a constant presence which will never depart from us.

When we are in communion with the trinity they come and bless us with their amazing Divine love within our hears. There is nothing to compare to this amazing experience and it is ours to lay claim to for eternity when we enter Heavens gate.

He takes great delight in dwelling in each of His childrens hearts

“Our Father dwells in tents as well as in temples, but His favorite abiding place is in the hearts of mankind.” J. Fred Jones

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your constant presence in my daily life. I need Your Divine guidance, protection and love every day. But, most of all my Love, I treasure our  daily communion as the greatest blessing of all. I thank you in the name of my most cherished best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cannot be Perfected Without Adversity.

 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 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference is that those of us in Jehovahs family is there to comfort us, encourage us, heal us and guide us through them.

Those of the world depend upon their own faulty understanding, power and logic and or that of so called professionals to no avail. They suffer far greater.

The closer we get to Christ, the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times when we are enduring hard times and we call out to Jehovah it seems as if there is no answer. Do not be discouraged. He loves you and will not ever desert you.

When you reflect back on it you will see Jehovah burning off the dross (the bad dispositions in you) and teaching you.

This fills me with awe and amazing joy, love and respect that I have such an amazing God, it will you as well.

Of course there is going to be a battle between you and satan.

He sees you getting close to Christ and he is infuriated. He will show no mercy in his attacks to destroy this incredible loving relationship.

Sometimes Jehovah will allow you to fight your own battles and each time you do your warrior skills against this filth will be enlarged. You will sing for joy unto Jehovah in your victory. Think of Job at the end of his suffering. This will bring you closer to our Warrior King.

Other times the battle is too strong for you and the Holy Spirit will come  to rescue  you. Again your relationship with Christ will be closer than before.

“A gem cannot be polished without friction; the child of God cannot be perfected without adversity.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for using adversity to polish off the dross in my life so that I am a beautiful jewel in Your eyes and in Your heart. I extol Thee in the name of the most precious jewel of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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