A Pathway For the Work Of

 “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.1 Samuel 15:22 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

What an incredible path He has chosen for me to follow. My Beloved slowly transformed me from a country hick into a obedient son of His.

The path went from moving to the city from the farm (which was a huge act of faith and was terrifying to do) and learning natural medicine to planting tree’s in Gods garden (I say the earth is Gods garden and we are His caretakers). From there He had me slowing seeds for His two legged garden (that is, bringing souls into His family) in China. Next He moved me to come home and be a live in care giver to a challenging mother. None of this was conceivable when I was a child shy sick.

It was accomplished through obedience unto my Heavenly King and working in harmony with the Holy Spirit.

“Obedience, pure and simple, opens up a pathway for the work of God.” — David Stevens

Now Christ, our king may not have such challenging duties (duty is an act of love, obligation is an exchange of goods, i.e. I am obligated to work for an employer as he is obligated to pay me for that work). But, every act of worship no matter how big or small is an act of love unto our Heavenly Father Jehovah and His son our King Jesus

There is no act of love unto Christ no matter how big or small that is no great in Heaven Joseph a son of Jehovah  

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the honour of being Your humble loyal obedient servant and for the numerous opportunities You present to me to serve You. I exalt You in Your majestic name. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

They Know it Too.

 For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it.  They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. Romans 2:13-15 

A question that is frequently asked of us Christians is what about those who have not heard about Jehovah? How can that be fair that He casts them into Hell when they have never heard about Him? How can a loving God do that? That is unfair.

Even those with no education of Christianity know there is a Supreme God by their consciences.

They know it too. After all, who imputes it into their thoughts what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, they will have no excuse when they face Jesus at the Judgment throne.

When you study ancient history every religion points back to the God of creation.

Those that reject Jehovah here, deserve to be rejected by Him in Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Today, society in the west, has become dependent upon electronics and most folks live in a city so they are removed from the wonder of Gods creation (do you think it strange that most of the so called atheists live in the city while most of those with a deep religious conviction live in the boondocks). Those in the city get their perception of nature from perverted minds that teach that animals are like people and that animals can be treated like cute lovable toys (like in the movies). I have seen it with catastrophic results when planting trees every year. They do not have a clue what it is like to live off of the land or how to behave around wild animals. The same goes for hunting. You live on a farm or ranch and see how fast you buy are rifle to protect your crops and or livestock.

The closer you get to nature the closer you get to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for the wonderful honour of You revealing Yourself to me through Your incredible creation. It amazes me and creates a heart and mind that worships and respects You all the more. I praise You in the name of He who was there with You in the beginning Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What is Idolatry?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty. Revelation 21:27 New Living Translation

Jesus is talking about those forbidden from entering Heavens Gate.

Do you see how repulsive idolatry is to Him?

You think you do not worship idols?

How about your pets? I have seen many pets rule the house instead of the owner. Yes I love our pets like they were my own children but instead of worshiping them, I thank Jehovah for blessing me with such loving creatures. See the difference? Continue reading

To You, O Lord

GODS DELIGHTS

 

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in You I [have unwavering] trust [and I rely on You with steadfast confidence],
Do not let me be ashamed
or my hope in You be disappointed;
Do not let my enemies triumph over me.
Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed;
Those who turn away from what is right
and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed). Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long.
Remember, O Lord, Your [tender] compassion and Your loving kindnesses, For they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your loving kindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.
All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
For Your name’s sake, O Lord, Pardon my wickedness and my guilt, for they are great. Who is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with submissive wonder]? He will teach him [through His word] in the way he should choose. His soul will dwell in prosperity and goodness, And his descendants will inherit the land.
The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him, And He will let them know His covenant and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning.
My eyes are continually toward the Lord, For He will bring my feet out of the net. Turn to me [Lord] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins.
Look upon my enemies, for they are many; They hate me with cruel and violent hatred. Guard my soul and rescue me; Do not let me be ashamed or disappointed, For I have taken refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness protect me, For I wait [expectantly] for You. Psalm 25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This pretty much describes my attitude and behaviour towards my all knowing, all delivering, all encouraging, all loving all forgiving incredible Heavenly Father, Supreme King and Wise Teacher.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being so loving towards me in that You always supply me with the right amount of what I need, when I need it. You are so amazing. I exalt You in the great name of He who always supplied His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?

EXAMINE YOURSELF
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4   Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                            

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumours, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying. All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offences and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

I am the Door

HIS INSTRUCTION

 I am the Door; anyone who enters through Me will be saved [and will live forever] John 10:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine trying to get out of a house by walking through the wall.

Impossible is it not?

Well so too is the saying that other religions can lead to Heaven as well. There is only one way and His name is Jesus.

Imagine you are travelling down a highway and your destination is a city in the west. You see two sign posts on the road ahead. One says to take the next right to go west while another says to take the next turn to go east.

Which one will you take?

The eastbound one right?

Of course not, that will take you in the wrong direction.

So too is it comparing the Bible with any other teaching. The Bible is the only guide book to Heaven. All others lead to Hell. When others say I am narrow minded, I agree. The road to Heaven is very narrow but the only one to take to get there. When others say I am very uncompromising I just remind them that the only way to quench thirst is by drinking liquids which is very uncompromising as well.   

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with the true knowledge of which way to travel on this planet which will ultimately lead me to Your Heavenly home. I give thanks for this blessing in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the knowledge and humbleness to accept that You are the Supreme King who holds the keys that unlock Heavens door. I eagerly anticipate the time when I can spend eternity with You worshipping You who alone are worthy of complete and total worship. In Your majestic name this servant of Your prays. Amen.

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

Eternity Offers Only Two.

kigndom of heaven

I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse Deuteronomy 30:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is so confusing.

That is what I used to say about life. There are so many options and so many voices. Which one do I listen to? This one says this and that one says that (I find that particularly true in health care). It makes the head spin.

After accepting Christ as my Savior He slowly showed me that to do so also makes Him my King and me His free will servant. Many of the things He instructed me to do were difficult. But that was to teach me to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. Many things seemed crazy, that was to teach me to trust Him implicitly in my life. Through the course of these decades long lessons He was slowly teaching me the most important lesson of all though: That is to continuously grow deeper in a loving relationship with Him. The ultimate goal will be to share eternity with the one I love and worship the most.

In the world there is so much confusion because they listen to the flawed doctrines of others instead of listening to and obeying the pure wisdom that only comes from the Holy Spirit. This is the rough trial to Heaven, all others only lead to eternal misery in Hell.

“Life offers many choices. Eternity offers only two.”  Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with being a guiding light in my life in this dark confusing world. I exalt You in the name of He who is the light of the world 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.
