Jehovah’s witnesses have it all wrong read this and see why.
The Way to a Happy Life
I’m a happy person; as any nature lover will confess, when you love what’s before your eyes, it’s easy to be a free spirit.
But then we reach puberty and grow up. After we grow up we tend to lose touch with happiness and have to work for a living.
You can try to find happiness, and some people try to teach you how. One such group is The Jehovah’s Witnesses. Their Church recently wrote a ‘Title’ issue of Awake Nov. 2014 entitled: Keys to a happy life.
I don’t believe you will find happiness through their teaching; they quote and often mis-quote the bible for reference, but fall short in putting on the garment of Righteousness only available through the Holy Spirit of Truth in/of God Almighty as Shared by Jesus, whom, ‘created from the substance of eternity’ became man to die for us, and to live for us and in us, as our brother, Lord God and savior, and friend.
Jesus commanded the seas, the animals, and the demon spirits, and he proved his God-Head by rising from the grave after three days and three nights. Resolutely taking the keys of death away from satan, as only a Holy and Righteous One can do.
His teaching in the Bible teaches us that He is the Way, the Truth and the life! And if you want true happiness it is only found in Jesus. It’s His Holy Spirit we receive.
The Bible was written so we could know the words of God. But if all of the works of God were written, the whole world couldn’t contain the books. The mysteries of the universe to the microscopic; God’s creation is being revealed in vivid detail, but it is not the person of God. All these exist in God through his will and command of “I AM”.
In the beginning was the Word and that word was with God and that word was God. That word was the word of truth that became I AM, and that I AM became Jesus as a man to give his life as a sacrifice for the remission of our sins, for all who believe in his life death and resurrection from the grave, and for all who accept him as their Lord and God, will receive his very Holy Spirit he was given in life and inception and through our new Spirit in Jesus we are able to know the revelation of the “rememberances” given by the Spirit to help us see the very Mind of Christ Jesus found in his written word and we experience his thought, will and emotion in our understanding of the revelation of this ‘remembrance’.
His Word even if regarded as the words of a prophet and not of God, not equal to God the Father as the Jehovah‘s Witnesses teach…is in reality equal. But if you don’t believe Jesus is God in the flesh, then, how can you share in his spirit when you want to be born-again.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses like to quote the Bible but fail to realize that the person in the verse, while being a figurehead of our imagined self, should we like to think it speaks of us :
“Happy is the man who keeps on enduring trial, because on becoming approved he will receive the crown of Life.” James 1:12
As if it is you are the man or woman who is enduring trial so that on becoming approved you will receive the crown of life. Yet you fail to realize that this person who is happy is a Christian and he must stand approved in Christ Jesus.
And YES That can be YOU…but if you haven’t walked in the Way of Jesus and proven that God is True and that Jesus is Lord and prophet, the first fruits of a nation of prophets, and walked in the Way of God’s Love and Truth where we find our happiness in life, then you have turned a deaf ear to his word and believed the lie of a false teaching church.
The Jehovah’s Witness Church is one of many who stands in danger of rejecting God’s word, because they are told to read only their own version bible The New World translation where the Word of God is given a Little “g”. Even tho’ it is a capital “G” in the King James Bible translation.
1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God“. kjv (they say: a god, instead of God.
They say the little “g” is the correct translation of that verse but I disagree. I don’t have to look it up to prove it because they would just say they don’t trust the authority I used, and would have to have their own church authorities examine it.
Okay, then I would show them their very own published authority The Greek Interlinear translation that translates English verse with the Greek words underneath the English words. Turn to revelations and read down a little and look for your English word Jehovah and its Greek equivalent; then turn to the book of John and read the verse that uses the small “g” for “a god’ rather than a capital “G” for God, and see that it uses the same Greek word as used to call God Jehovah in revelations, but in John a little “g”.
Even when I show them their error and this in their own church written authorities, they still refuse to acknowledge the truth in/of Jesus that he is one with God the Father whom they call Jehovah, yet Jesus Name shall be made higher than every name in Heaven and earth, so says psalms. Because Jesus, The Word of Truth made flesh, was in the beginning before and after he said “I AM”.
And because they refuse to admit in the Godhood of Jesus they don’t give the Holy Spirit the heart of sincerity. If you are not saved prior to entering into the Jehovah’s Witnesses then, chances are poor for finding salvation in the Truth. And because you do not repent unto the acknowledging of the Truth and you are told to believe only Jehovah can save you not Jesus…well you will at least have this: with God all things are possible.
If you do make the good confession and happen to be in the wrong church, I know you won’t be taught the truth of the gospel and will not find the revelation of Spirit to know the Mind of Christ Jesus. His thought will and emotion expressed in his written word.
Where you get to make a choice, to acknowledge the Truth in and of Jesus and the way of God’s Agape love is yours to put on until your abidance in the Truth produces the transformation of becoming one with the Truth in/of Jesus through his Spirit shared in us when we are born-again, making the knowing of Gods love and light as our own. And as you continue to walk in the ‘Way’ of Jesus knowing the ‘Way’ of Repentance that produces the fruit of the Spirit in increasing measure until your measure is full and the Day Star rises in you.
There is only one church in Christ Jesus. Not in Allah or Jehovah.(Jehovah is the fullness of Agape Love and Truthful Light that the Spirit of Truth is.) Yet Jehovah did not cease to be Jehovah when he said “I AM” and became the only begotten Son of God, begotten, to come out of and yet take with you, the same substance of eternity as a separate entity of Godhood, Yet in Jesus we have the Father in us even as we are in the Father. Both are One. Its not about Jehovah as the Jews call God, or about Allah as the Muslims call Him. But in the substance of eternity that The One God is: the Spirit of Truth that became Himself within Himself when he said “I AM” And we are honored and Highly Blessed to be One with God The Father, Through our being born-again in the Holy Spirit of Jesus.
It is a shame everyone can’t see that God gave his only begotten Son, the I AM that I AM, who created the universe and the heavens, where he prepares a place for each Christian found approved in his Truth. To know it Fully without measure even as I AM fully known. And at his coming back to take over, we who are born-again and share in his Holy Spirit will rise to be with him and life will be full of Love and Truth, the past will be forgotten, and all things will change; in the blink of the eye all Christians will be transformed and become perfect and immortal Sons of God knowing the Fullness of the Holy Spirit that we have only known in the part when given to us when we gave the ‘Good’ confession and found later, in understanding and transformation that only true walking in the ‘Way‘ of Repentance can reveal to us as we walk in the ‘Way’ of Jesus and become one with in this life, but then, we shall know in full even as I AM.
After that, I won’t even guess, but I bet it will be heavenly. pun intended.
Hope to see you there.
‘The Unpardonable sin’
As a Christian, I’m concerned over my brother’s and sister’s in Christ Jesus. I share this same concern for the stranger who doesn’t know the Lord Jesus.
I’m sure all of us have the ability to remember when we were first saved and felt the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that is in/of Jesus.
But now, in comparison, we stand as the stranger; we may be saved, and only if you have been born-again are you saved, but we stand as a stranger to Jesus, we do not know his presence in the Agape Love nor in the Mind of Christ Jesus as did the writer of Corinthians pointed out that we are to have.
Saved or not, Christian or stranger, the only unpardonable sin, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, is performed by those of us who do not begin to walk in the Way of Jesus.
Steps to take begin with reading the New Testament Bible in both the original King James version and the New International Version for ease of reading.
Don’t bother with any study Bible that highlights the general doctrine of Jesus being Lord God, with notes and all. All you need is the word of God as given to us by Jesus Christ and his apostles, not some churches view of what it means.
I’m not saying to avoid churches, but for now is not the time to question the meaning of the written word but to become familiar with the written word.
As you begin your task of reading the entire new testament, you need to start taking your next steps.
The Way of Jesus is made manifest in the completion of the steps you take in walking in the Way of Jesus.
As we walk in the Way we are going to learn the knowledge of God’s Righteousness as the Truth in/of Jesus.
I’ve been saying we begin to walk in the Way of Jesus by first reading the New testament because the understanding of the Way in/of Jesus is to see the revelation of his Written Word as it applies to the mind of Christ Jesus, knowing the same thought, will and emotion that Jesus knows, His Mind, of Spiritual enlightenment given in a Spiritually given Remembrance of verse we have read, now filled with the understanding of choice; acknowledged by us as being the truth to live by from each moment on, and does no harm to its neighbor; this works over time and we are to build on the foundation of Jesus by walking in the Way of Repentance to the acknowledging of increased understanding in the Mind of Jesus with increased awareness to know the personal awareness of God’s ever present Love and Joy all thanks to the Hidden in Christ. The wisdom to know faith, hope and Love and the greatest is Love.
It is a proven heart-felt joy coming through knowing the Truth in/of Jesus and the Love of the Father that we know in our heart because Jesus word is alive in us and we know it as God’s Love witnessed in the heart that has been made new in being born again.
Many of us have yet to take the second step, in the bible teaching of Corinthians, we have yet to develop the Mind of Christ Jesus in our mindful belief by faith. With our heart as witness. No, many who have been born again have lost the joy of being first-born and didn’t know that it can be known again in a walking joy moment by moment.
We won’t see Jesus, but as we take step in the Way of Repentance away from our sins, where love that does no harm, is our most important desire to live by and in truth in All we can choose to do, so; we grow to understand the love of God and our hearts will bear witness to the indwelling of the Spirit and joy is ours. The Way made manifest by the steps we have taken…thus enabling the Holy Spirit’s ability to give us the ‘remembrances’ of “written Truth” that is given when God the Father best deems the time to be best possible time to become a revelation of understanding that we have acknowledged as truth and choosing to be abiding in living by, until we have been transformed to be one with.
To lay on the foundation of Jesus we use bricks of truth found as we ask ourselves one question: then as many questions as it takes to answer the one question: why do I do the unloving sin I do that I don‘t want to do?
This is how you take your steps. You might want to keep a journal of when you tackle the job of searching for the reasons for your sins, it makes it easier to take a break and pick up where you left off. It also helps you to see the straight of it. Think…why do you do the sin you know not to do but do? You must not settle for anything but truth that applies to everyone and love that does no harm to its neighbor. All reasons for sins being and motives for doing are found in the understanding of why you sin.
Anger is a good place to start; if you are working on your problem areas that need truth and love because they are hurting someone, you will be considered in a hyper state of awareness of your shortcomings and can become angry with someone who exhibit’s the same behavior yet you might not be aware of it at the time and just feel yourself getting madder. Remember man’s anger defeats God’s Righteous purpose. Ask yourself why are you mad; then find the truth of it and chances are it will bring a revelation to you about yourself.
When you find the answers to this one question and you take the responsibility to choose to walk in the loving alternatives to your sins, until the transformation takes place and it becomes the you that is one with the Lord Jesus; then you will know to help others learn to walk in the way of Love in Truth. And joy is yours.
Yes, repentance is the only action given to become the source of building stones to lay on the foundation of Jesus, see Hebrews 6:1 and see that we are to lay the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith towards God.
A basic principle: repentance from dead works of sin and you will know the love of God through Jesus that reveals our stand in faith.
Some of us accept the Spirits anointing when we pray the good confession, yet it is always God the Father who judges whether we were of sincere heart, and gives the spirit accordingly.
Hence it is the same for Christians as it is for the stranger…to turn to the Spirit of Truth in Repentance is the Heart of Sincerity so judged by God.
The Way of our walking, that is picked by us. But taught by Jesus, if it is Lord of love and peace we want as our Lord; rather than the lord of the ways of the world that satan dominates and serves only himself. And so it begins if you are in earnest, stop the bad do the good that you can see in your walk through life.
Thus we are transformed to be one with Christ Jesus.
It can take time, but remember: “all things work out for the best for those who love God.” Persevere until the day-star shine from within you.

“Calling all Christians”
(Applications are now being accepted)
By definition the word ‘christian’ means Christ like. Meaning Christ Jesus is in them.
But many who call themselves ‘Christian’ do not have the Spirit of Christ Jesus in them. They prayed the sinners prayer, they called Jesus Lord, they were baptized in water and they were assured by the pastor that if they, as scripture says,…”if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
We are told to believe this by faith.
And life is given over to going to bible studies, church services, and willful neglecting of past and present sins, until they erupt from being held in suppression of unaddressed issues and desires.
How do you answer the verse that says: “except a man be born of water and the spirit, he can not enter the kingdom of God.”
Are you believing that by faith too?!
If you know you are a true christian, born-again and not having to trust in the assurrances of a pastor, preacher who doesn’t have a clue, then read on.
You are a true born-again Christian, but when you witness your spirit do you discern its
Presence? Do you experience knowing the joy of God’s love?
When you view the life of others, do you see the paths their lives take and do you see where the ‘Way’ of Jesus is missing in them?
Do you know the ‘Way’ of Jesus, the teaching given to his disciples and recorded in the New Testament gospel?
Do you tithe? Does it benefit you? Do you have a church home? Does its vision benefit you? Have you been a member very long? Do you share with your church and members?
In these last four paragraphs did you see yourself involved with your church fully? Feeling the joy in God’s love and gratefully sharing with your church in a sharing of mutual goodness and glad tidings?
I’m not surprised really. Anyone who said yes would be asked to take the time to share with me the teaching of Jesus, called the ‘Way’, and by their words I would know them to be true or false.
The ‘Way6’ of Jesus is clear to the knowing, and the meaning of the words in verse are clear. Those four paragraphs define what true Christianity is capable of.
But for those of you who said NO!, I applaud you of your honesty. “If to no one else, be true to yourself.”
You see, I know that when we are born – again in the spirit of the Truth in Jesus Christ, we get to experience firsthand, the Love of God in accordance to the measure of faith we were given at birth. I also know that when we begin living as we always have, and we will because our mind has yet to be renewed with the knowledge of faith that being renewed in Spirit has made possible… When we see the world as we have accustomed ourselves to think how it is, the feeling of knowing the presence of the Love of God will be swept under the matt of your mis-understood pre-conceived notions of what the truth is, and that is: we have been given the ’Way’ of Jesus so that we can find the ‘Way’ of Jesus, so that you will be established in the knowledge of God’s righteousness, and the ‘Hidden’ may shine again from within.
The ‘Way’ of Jesus, straight and narrow and only a few find it. When you find it you will know it by name. and when you know it you will fulfill your purpose in life, and you can claim your standing to be one of a nation of prophets; a son or daughter of God the Father thru God the Son, Jesus.
My question to you is: don’t you think it’s time to lay down some roots and become a true Christian and be of One mind with other True Christians? Unless you are satisfied with you own spirituality of ignorance. You can preach the gospel all you want but that does not make you a Christian. Thinking you are born-again doesn’t make you a born-again christian either. And being born-again doesn’t give you understanding of the ‘Hidden’ that the teaching of the ‘Way’ reveals.

A book could be written on the worries that hit you when you break your transmission. How will I get the kids to school? How will I get to work on time?
And if you break the tranny to your motor home that you live in with your girlfriend, losing your home to a broken tranny just isn’t an option you want to consider; and the worries become an almost unbearable burden.
Cost for repairs were compared: $800. $650, and another over a thousand dollars.
The first offer was fair. The second offer was too sketchy and felt like it would take forever and cost more than expected. And the third…well it was too high. I chose the first one, but not just because the offer was fair to average, but because the manager, Mr. Mark A. Rains, was very concerned and offered consolation for my needs and was willing to take a partial payment and the rest in a couple of days when I came to collect my motor home. He competently sent a tow truck and made quick repairs that kept me from having to sleep homeless more than two days.
The total cost was $837. And some change, and even tho’ the tow was included for free I think it was included in the bill when charges were considered. But HEH! I want you to know that Mark saved the day and my motor home’s tranny. And the relief from that was a relief.
I’m also very grateful for my sisters financial help. That was the biggest worry.
My gratitude and kudos given to Mark A. Rains, owner of ‘Eliminator Transmissions’ located at: 11418 North Woodside Ave. Santee California 92071 phone number 619-596-2628. Tell Mark J.J. sent you.
“In the beginning was the Word”
That Word was the word of truth.
“…and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
God the Father is a spirit known as the Spirit of Truth, the Word. Hence the truth of the Word is alive with the Word’s spirit.
Thus we are created in God’s image, a body made alive by a spirit. Only our spirit that brings life to our body is just the opposite of God’s body; the Word of Truth is his body and that truth emanates a living spirit.
Our body emanates nothing, but the refreshing of our spiritual breath; and our blood keeps our body alive. Take away our life by either the loss of breath or the loss of blood and we die a permanent death.
Yet the life we are conscious of is kept alive in the spirit, but without a body’s mind to host our memories, and a heart to host the spirit of life, in our death we know nothing. There we await judgment to life or death.
All that you know in the world is colored by death, yet we can fight to know life in Jesus by walking in his ‘Way’.
Now in the beginning we lived clean sin free lives and we could live for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years, if satan hadn’t butted in and caused decay to begin in sin. The fall of man in the Garden of Eden began a corruption of life and the health of all life was altered with human life being limited to 120 years max, with most dying earlier.
As man and empires grew without the presence of God in Truth and the lies of satan along with his influences of power and wealth infiltrated everywhere, the world became blind to the ‘Hidden’ in the Word of Truth and the Love it emanates in spiritual life.
As the empires grew and the corruption of life grew with them, the sins of corruption in man grew with no reason to change except a sickness of heart.
We can experience a wide range of emotions and though we cannot know God’s Agape love until we are born-again and then only in direct proportion to the measure of faith that was given to us. With none of us given to know the fullness of faith until the new life with God in Jesus is come and we are changed in an instant.
We know humanly love…Eros, Phileo, storgee, epathurmia…and through these we can see a hint of God’s Agape love and we can desire to know it firsthand though Christ Jesus.
With the utterance of a sinner’s prayer asking for God to grant you salvation and a new spirit so that we can experience God’s Love, we become born-again. We are now able to find God’s love on an increasing basis.
In the immediate sense we experience God’s Love in a joyful union that is felt in true elation, but when that wanes because of our continuing on in living in sin, we can find it in the steps that reflect our faiths measure. Each step is a closer walk in love until our measure is filled with the understanding of God’s Righteousness. A Righteousness that is inherent of the Truth.
Steps we have yet to take after our salvation is indicative of receiving the Holy Spirit.
The awesome feeling of God’s Love, given at salvation, precedes the Minds comprehension of the knowledge found in God’s Love, and the magnitude of pure truths emanation of total love from total truth is kept from destroying our minds ability to grasp concepts of understanding that would take us forever to become aware of and cause us to shut down or overload and pass out or die from shock, except that we are only given to know a measure less than the total. A measure of faith that reveals only a measure of God’s love until the time of ‘instant total transformation’ and what we can know in part becomes known in full, even as I AM. Thank you Jesus the I Am that I AM!
The key is in the becoming fully known as ‘I AM’. What we know is, if, Jesus starts something he finishes it. And our complete transformation after salvation is guaranteed; but if we ever want to know the Joy in God’s Love in ‘this life’ we need to set feet to walking in ‘The Way of Jesus’.
In the beginning the Word of Truth finds it’s consciousness in the living Spirit of Truth. Both being distinctly separate yet unable to live apart simply because the spirit of the Word finds its life in the knowledge of the Total Word of Truth.
How long did the awareness of God contemplate the many possible paths a life can take in diverting paths caused by incomplete awareness of the fullness of spirit which gives the Word the fullness of life that the love of God makes complete in spirit?
The possibilities are as endlessly different as the totality of life’s truths are able to exist in endless parts. In other words: how many parts or sections can truth be split apart by untruths?
When you can see the many truths that our lives depend on to live, both physically and spiritually, down to the invisible parts as well as the visible, then the totality of truth in the totality of spirit can be seen to be immense. So immense that it is written that the whole world couldn’t hold the needed books that could be written to record every detail of the knowledge used by God to create all things and plot the paths of each person to such a degree that all things work out for the best for those that love God.
God the Father contemplated the fullness of the time needed to bring man into the family of Christ Jesus, and knew all of the ways of erroneous choices that fallen man can travel unless they learned to discern the way of Love that can only be known if man was able to receive the Holy Spirit of Truth which makes possible the learning to see the need for love and truth and move to acquire the knowledge of truth made known in the spirit by Jesus.
Jesus, who came into an existence separate from the Father, having a separate fullness of the Word with a separate fullness of the Spirit…grants us his equal measure of Word and Spirit, that we can only know in part until the time of His Kingdom Come and we who know in part will be given to know in full.
Then we will know God in Spirit in fullness, and we will know that Jesus and the Father are One, yet Jesus saw no shame in being called his Son from whom he existed before becoming I AM.
Thus Jesus who brought all of creation into being by his spoken command given in full agreement with the fullness of the Word and it’s life in the Spirit of the Father, because when the Word became I AM, a complete image of the fullness of God the Father became co-existent with the Father having been created from: ‘The substance of eternity’ enabling the making of an incomplete humanity complete in both, the Word and the spirit of the Word whereby through Jesus we are become one with the Father. And our non-emanating spirit is replaced with God’s Spirit in Jesus and we are One.
With being born again and given a new spirit and a new heart we also get the knowledge of the new spirit. And the spirit of the Father reveals his love in us through Jesus who becomes the focal point for all of the knowledge of Righteousness and understanding found in the Word.
With witness to the truth and having put-on the love of God as revealed in the truth of the Word, and accepted in the Way; I fully acknowledge the way of Jesus as being the teaching of Jesus that shows us the increase of joy found in the Father’s love as we abide, and in the Father we are One.
But we don’t live like it. And most of us will never know this “Hidden’ in Christ until his kingdom has come. From the beginning of the fall of mankind, satan has lied to us, telling us we are the work of evolution and life is what we make of it.
We are being bombarded by hate, greed, war, terror, and even television shows that desensitize us from the horror of real demons whose soul purpose is to do the work of satan who wants to kill all Christians!
Where do you stand? Is Christianity just a bunch of rubbish that the entire world wars over??? If you can’t see the truth through all of the lies even though the evidence of Holy Wars make it glaringly obvious; then can you see the truth that we choose to live by the choices we make and love and hate, life and death, decisions are made every day by us and “IF” you want No more wars, “IF” you want Love in your life, not hate, and the choices are real to you yet you just can’t bring yourself to believe that it’s all because of God and satan are up for grabs for being elected as your personal God; then know that whom you choose to serve will be your master on earth, but if you haven’t accepted Jesus as your God in the after-life then satan will be your default choice and your after life will be nothing but Hell. Not to mention that this life will be a living Hell too!
The Way of Jesus was proven by his resurrection and proven by each of his disciples in the evidence of the joy found in God’s Love revealed by our choices to choose love and truth in all situations repented of, with the assurance of the promise that should we die before reaching the fullness of the knowledge of God’s Righteousness, we will be resurrected to know such a life that only God can reveal.
I firmly believe in Jesus because I have proven that love increases with the choosing. And it is my willing obligation to share with you the Way of Jesus so that you too can know the love of God through Jesus.
You see, by our choices the meaning to life is clear…to become a Christian means to be able to know the Truth of the Word and know firsthand that the love of God the Father is sparked and given purchase by the truth that I have found revealed in the ‘spiritual remembrances’ of his written Word given to us by Jesus. Thus I accept him and choose to walk in his way of love and truth.
Each born-again Christian is known by the Father even if they aren’t yet born-again. He saw your birth, life and potential in your heart of hearts, and he knows when you are ready to accept him before you know it yourself. That is why some are saved at the praying of the sinner’s prayer while others are not saved. He sees your hearts sincerity and gives accordingly.
We all have a measure of faith whether you find it or not. You have the sole responsibility to choose whom you will serve and acknowledge. These articles are here to share with you the knowledge of the ‘Hidden’ and hopefully inspire you to choose Jesus as Lord. But they are also here to share with you How to walk in Spirit and Truth in your daily life. When you learn to do that your life will become joy-full! May the Lord Jesus be with you. In Him, J.J.
