When They Saw Him.

                           

And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted [that it was really He]. Matthew 28:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We can see Jehovah in nature, we can see Him in other Christians and we can see Him at work in our lives when we submit to Him.

Yet, for all that, how many times do we question His existence?

That is why it is important to daily reflect back on our experiences with Him because it cements itself in our minds and memories.

Because, when we doubt His existence that is the devil whispering in our ears.

When He whispers in my ear and questions Jehovahs existence He better have a lot of time on his hands because I rattle off numerous example of His existence with pure joy, wonder and awe. I think the devil becomes rather bored of it because he quickly leaves the conversation, without even telling me. Is that not rather rude ha ha.

When the devil casts doubt about our Heavenly Beloveds existence, just remind Him of all the abundant love He has showered on you and ask him how his relationship with Jesus is going. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for reassuring me that You are always with this child You love so much and always delivers me from my cares. I praise Thee in the name of He who delivered on His promise to always be with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Following After Their

                 

First of all, know [without any doubt] that mockers will come in the last days with their mocking, following after their own human desires. 2 Peter 3:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is becoming more and more prevalent every day (especially in the west) that folks will worship anything and anyone rather than Christ. We see it with sports teams, musicians, movie stars. We see it with so called new age. We see it with the homosexual community.

At the same time we see it becoming more and more severe how these same creatures viciously mock true Christians. We see how they vilify us with every opportunity.

Instead of feeling pressured or picked on consider it pure joy when anyone mocks you for being a Christian. That is a badge of honour. It also means time is running short and soon we will be with our Beloved in Heaven.

When the wicked mock and persecute the righteous you know you must walking the right path. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Blessed [comforted by inner peace and God’s love] are those who are persecuted for doing that which is morally right, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever]. Matthew 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your all powerful strength to endure hardships for being a loved child of Your. I praise You in the name of He who was persecuted all the way to the cross for walking in harmony with You 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

For All I Have not Seen.

                                                  

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever laid out under the sky at night and looked at the stars? Have you ever tried to count them? When a child it was a summer ritual with us country kids. It is impossible for us to imagine nor understand how He did it. We feel very small and insignificant but then Jehovah speaks to us and says :”Yes I made all these stars and am awesome but my love for you is even larger than these galaxies.” How can you not trust a God like that?

Have you ever smelled and caressed a flower in the early morning dew? Its whole essence fills you with a sensation equal with being mildly intoxicated. We are in awe at His amazing creation and cannot imagine nor understand how He knew to make such beautiful creations. Have you ever wondered how a God like that cannot have such a loving heart for His cherished children? How can you not love a God like that with your life?

Have you ever watched a sunrise and or sunset over a body of water like the ocean and been completely memorized by it with time standing still. Have you ever wondered how Jehovah can set the sun at just the right angle to create such and intently amazing scene? It is beyond our knowledge or imagination how He did it. How can you not trust a God like that with your life?

When I was a tree planter in the mountains in Canada every year the atheist kids from the city would laugh at me for worshiping a make believe God. Then one day when they were planting they would look up and Jehovah would reveal His Divine beauty in nature before them. They stood still like a statute and were bedazzled by it all. They could no longer laugh at a make believe God because they has met Him in His creation.

“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” Emerson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your revealing Your awesome love, majesty and incredible intelligence through Your creation. Thank you for using these experiences to bless me with the Divine opportunity to get oh so very close with You during these momentous events. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was there helping create these amazing creation 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

Therefore We Must Be.

                                     

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Faith means to trust.

Have you ever layed out under the stars and be amazed at it all and wonder how Jehovah created them all? It is above our capabilities to understand it and we are left with nothing but faith in His Word that it is true.

Have you ever wondered why there is such importance in sharing love to make our lives complete? We cannot truly explain it, we must have faith in Jehovah’s word.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus would suffer and die for one such as you? I we look at it and think if we could or would make such a horrendous sacrifice and realize we could not it is above our comprehension that Christ did. That is why we must have faith in His word.

Have you ever wondered what Heaven is like, what it is like to be in constant communion with Christ? That takes faith to believe Jehovah is true to His word and it shall indeed be an eternal grandest event in our lives.

“Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith.” — Reinhold Niebuhr

Prayer: Oh my most grandiose Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) I am in constant awe at all of Your stupendous creation. It leaves me humbled and enormously appreciative of the love You so lavishly bless me with every day. In deep worship in the name of Your most awesome gift to me Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

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

By Far More Christian Than

                                                  

 There is no [distinction between] Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, [nor between nations whether] barbarian or Scythian, [nor in status whether] slave or free, but Christ is all, and in all [so believers are equal in Christ, without distinction]. Colossians 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 Do you notice the mention of the Scythian and wonder who they were?

Scythian the 8th century BC, they possibly raided Zhou China. At their peak, Scythians came to dominate the entire steppe zone,stretching from the Carpathian Mountains in the west to central China (Ordos culture).

When I was a teacher in China some Chinese Christians were sharing with me how Christianity came to China early in the first century A.D. When I looked up who they were on wikipedia.org it fits perfectly what my Christian sisters were informing of. It took me about three years to come to grips with what they were saying but searching the scriptures proved they were right.

I believe we in the west are arrogant in believing that Christianity is mostly a western religion.

When I studied Chinese Christianity and saw how they behaved they were by far more Christian than the majority of so called Christians in the west.

As well their Bible is different form the wests (for example the only apostle they have is Thomas because he was the only one of Christs disciples to travel there and they have the Book of Enoch in their Bible) and I found it more in line with true Christianity.

As well on the bus going to church the Chinese Christians and we excitedly shared with what Jehovah had done in our lives that week(The members from the west were very annoyed by it.They preferred to talk about pop music, the latest movies or TV shows or fashion- the material world- rather than Christ in their lives).

How many western Christians get excited to talk about what Jehovah has done in their lives?

On the way back we would discuss the sermon.

How many so called western Christians discuss the sermon after service?

Before church they would have prayer meetings and after church they would have Bible study classes.

How many churches have that every Sunday- indeed, how many even teach from the Bible any more?

Most of them have suffered a great deal by becoming Christians.

How many in the west are willing to suffer for Christ?

Do not tell me you are a Christian, show me. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

We in the west can learn so much of true worship from our Chinese Christian brothers and sister.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah God of knowledge bless me with abundant knowledge of how to be a loving obedient child of Yours every day.Please ingrain it into every molecule of my being so as to glorify You. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the all knowing 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

The Original Superstar.

                                                                                                        

Now it happened that while Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret (Sea of Galilee), with the people crowding all around Him and listening to the word of God Luke 5:1 Holy Bible, Amplified Version   

Have you ever watched these pitiful creatures wait in line for days to get a ticket to go to a concert featuring a so called musical super star?

They wait in rain ,heat, cold and snow. When they get their tickets they are ecstatic.

Or how about these foolish folks you see on TV when on the Opera show, you see their faces? They are clinging to her every word.

What a disgrace.

For me, I cherish being in the presence of a true super star. His name is Jesus.

There is no line ups to be with Him nor is there a special pass to spend time with Him. He is always readily available.

What makes Jesus a super star is that He loves me and cares about me like no one else can. He is always there when I have problems, listens patiently while I cry my heart out to Him and then gently blesses me with the best advice, far superior to anything you get on those TV shows.

When was the last time you crowded around Jesus, yes you can have your Bible but it is also good just to talk with Him from your heart?

When was the last time you worshiped Him like the ultimate super star He is?

Jesus Christ is the original and ultimate Superstar. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“To believe God is to worship God.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Elyon (Lord Most High) for being the ultimate superstar that is gracious enough to bless me with communion with You. I praise you in the name of He who I love to worship Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It was The.

 Which of the two did the will of the father?” The chief priests and elders replied, “The first one.” Jesus said to them, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you that the tax collectors and the prostitutes will get into the kingdom of God before you. “ Matthew 21:31 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The biggest sinners make the best saints. It is because we know how filthy we were before Christ came to wash us clean and forgive us of our sins that we worship and adore Him. We know what we were, we know what He had done to rescue us and we know what He is making us into that causes us to joyfully that we worship and adore Him.

Those who have their noses up in the air being haughty do not have this privilege because they think they are so good and so much better than others that they do not require a Savior. Boy are they in for a surprise on Judgment Day.

In Jesus’ case, we have the story of the holiest man who ever lived, and yet it was the prostitutes and thieves who adored Him, and the religious who hated His guts.” — Rebecca Manley Pippert

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with being sanctified unto my Beloved Father by Your Holy blood. I praise You in Your most delightful name. Amen.

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