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.

Lived Out in Me.

NOT TRY, TRUST

 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”Luke 17:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a reason we need to humbly request the Lord to increase our faith.

The number one reason is because as we increase our faith (which means trust) in our Beloved we get to know Him ,love Him and worship Him more and more thereby getting ever closer to Him.

The number two reason is that when our faith increases so too does our confidence in the Lord whenever satan comes a knocking. Having confidence in the Lord terrifies satan and his minions. Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.

Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of good to mankind; Help them to see the patterns of Thee, Shining in beauty, lived out in me. —Neuer

Mind you, we cannot increase our faith without suffering but in the aftermath of our sufferings we are every deeper in gratitude for Jehovahs loving providence. This brings us closer to Him not just on special occasion but in beautiful daily communion with Him. What a blessing that is.

“God delights to increase the faith of his children. We ought, instead of wanting no trials before victory, no exercise for patience, to be willing to take them from God’s hands as a means. Trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, are the very food of faith.” — George Müller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful unto this loving child of Yours that You have delivered the right amount of trials and tribulations, sorrows and pain to bring me ever closer to You in faith, understanding and love. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered these in extremes all the to and including the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Struggling With the Fact.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

 And the babbling fool [who is arrogant and thinks himself wise] will come to ruin. Proverbs 10:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many braggarts brought low and shame hangs upon their neck like a heavy brick. Those who once looked down on those they thought were beneath them quickly and with no warning become one of them. Fortunately I have nothing to do with social media because it does not seems too social to me. It is more like a platform for shallow folks to puff up themselves to the rest of the world. It seems pitiful to me. In reality they are very shallow, fragile folks. Criticize them and then see how mature they are then. If you really want to hurt them, just ignore them.

“Narcissistic people are always struggling with the fact that the rest of the world doesn’t revolve around them.” ~Unknown

On the other hand, there are those like myself that does not care what he says, she says or they say. I care about what Christ says about me. That does not make me arrogant but rather constantly listening to and obeying the Holy Spirits guidance to persistently improve myself.

The humble will see Heaven, the proud will see Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my heart a desire and means to worship He who is the only one worthy of being worshipped, You. May I never worship anything or anyone (including myself) other than You because they are all inferior to You. I thank you in the name of my idol 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.

In Such a Way That .

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

 Focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]. Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus demonstrated His love for us at a high cost. Knowing and understanding this should create an awe and deep love for Him. Yes we are to exhibit towards Him by understanding, however He requires that we pass along His style of love towards others as an act of worship towards Him.

Love is an action not an emotion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We accomplish this in our attitude towards others by not being arrogant nor abusive towards them but rather by being caring and respectful.

We serve Jehovah by serving with in our community. We need not be a missionary in some foreign land when there are ample opportunities all around us every day.

Of course we require knowledge of how to serve, when to serve and where to serve. Doing this on our own will only lead to disaster. We need the supreme teacher to instruct us in the way to accomplish the deeds Jehovah has prepared for us to do.

Now there is no sense in teaching someone to fish if they will never us those skills or go fishing in the first place. When the Holy Spirit enlightens us we are to be obedient and put into practice that which He has indoctrinated into us.

“The knowledge of Christ’s love for us should cause us to love Him in such a way that it is demonstrated in our attitude, conduct, and commitment to serve God. Spiritual maturity is marked by spiritual knowledge being put into action.” Edward Bedore

Prayer:I humbly ask of You Holy Spirit my master teacher to constantly instill in this child of the most Divine Love appropriate words, actions and thoughts of love which will exhibit my appreciation for such and wonderful gift He has blessed me with. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us Your Divine love when He walked amongst us 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

I Will Put a New

BE LOVING LIKE JESUS

“I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart.” Ezekiel 36:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Those in the world have hearts of stone towards Jehovah because they are so enraptured with worshiping themselves. They do not see the filth of their wicked ways, they only see entitlement.

The Holy Spirit is the ultimate heart surgeon.

It is with precision that He removes all the blockage in our hearts to loving Jehovah more that loving ourselves. He is an expert and replacing these obstructions with pure arteries that pump Divine spiritual blood through out our spirit.

The difference between a human heart surgeon and the Holy Spirit is that the heart surgeon accomplishes His work in a matter of hours where as the Holy Spirits operation lasts all the way until we reach total purity in our spiritual heart in Heaven home. The more He operates on us the more the ways of the world are detestable unto us and the more communion with Jehovah is our utmost desire.

When you become a Christian, the filthy desires of the world are repugnant to you and are replaced with the desires of Jehovah, Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) that Your Divine light has burned off the filthy dross of the world and replaced it with fantastic desires which is in harmony with You. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Until I Knew How to Love.

 

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

 I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. Romans 12:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a Christian means sacrificing self for Jehovah. We do this by being loving unto others. This is well pleasing to our Beloved.

We dedicate our bodies in service unto Christ by serving others in love. This is well pleasing to Him.

Each of these is an act of worship to Jehovah.

In return, He blesses us with close loving communion with Him.

As we serve others we realize how Jehovah takes care of us by us taking care of others. This increases our love and dedication towards Him.

It need not be travelling to other countries. In almost every country in the world there are ample volunteer opportunities in your own community. As you serve in a Christ like manner others will recognize Christ in you. This in turn will bring others towards being adopted into Jehovahs holy family. Do not expect big returns, from my experience it will only be about one in every ten that give their hearts unto Christ because of your dedicated service. The others will be ungrateful. Do not be disheartened. Even one is precious in the eyes of Jehovah.

“I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah MELEK KABOWD (King of Glory) for the privilege of serving You by being loving towards those around me. May this humble act of worship bring glory unto You and bring those walking in darkness into Your eternal Heavenly light. I worship You in the name of the light of the world with whom I love to worship Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Nothing is a Substitute For

WORSHIP

 While we were still helpless [powerless to provide for our salvation], at the right time Christ died [as a substitute] for the ungodly. Romans 5:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whatever you spend more time with than Christ is an idol. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In todays selfish society many folks worship themselves by spending more time on hobbies. Do you spend more time watching sports? What happens if your team stinks this year? Will you not face disappointment?

Christ never disappoints, He always blesses us with fulfillment in a loving relationship.

Do you spend a lot of time playing electronic games? What happens when you become bored of the games? You experience emptiness.

There is no emptiness with Christ , He always blesses us with fulfillment in a loving relationship.

Do you substitute Christ form sexual pleasures? When you are finished with your fleshly pleasures are you not left with an emptiness?

There is no more substitute for the pleasure in spending time with He whose love for us is immeasurable, Jesus Christ.

Name your substitute that you worship in Christs place and Christ with show you why it is always inferior to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Christ is a substitute for everything, but nothing is a substitute for Christ.” — H.A. Ironside

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for all of Your abundant Divine assistance in every aspect of my life. There is nothing nor no one that can equal much less be superior to Your eminence. I exalt You in the name of He who is all I need to unlock Heavens gate 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

There Are Two Gods.   

PROPER WORSHIP

 There are two gods in life and it is up to you to chose which one you will serve. One is self. Everything you do has a selfish motive to serve yourself. Even when it seems to others that you are serving others, in reality you are serving yourself. So for example we will say you are participating in a run for a cure for some disease.  Are you running because you truly desire that cure or are you running while taking selfies to pump up your ego.    

The end result of this disastrous worship is a meaningless life where the end result when you are on this planet is that you are so lonely that life is a daily torturous futile exercise. The final stage of life is an eternity in Hell, separated from a loving God.                   

The other is Jehovah. Serving Him means you put His desires above all others. The end result of this is a loving obedient relationship with a fantastic God who loves us more than we could ever imagine. As, well, we will have a meaningful successful life that has eternal rewards.

Choose the right God to worship, your eternity depends upon it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elyon (Lord Most High) for the honour of worshiping the ultimate God of which there is none to compare with. It is the sweetest of delights to spend time worshiping You in my thoughts, words and deeds. I exalt You for this supreme endowment in the name of the Supreme King of kings Jesus Christ. Amen May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
