SABBATH WORD (OCT 9/21) FIVE TYPES OF JOY A PERSON MAY EXPERIENCE IN LIFE

Sabbath Day (Gen.2: 1- 3 & Ex.20: 8 -11) ——By r. a. ——— Saturday, Oct.09/21

In Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name: “He who says, ‘I know Him (God),’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him” (1 John 2:3–4 & 1 John 5: 2 -3).

Today, the mood and temper of this age is not one of rejoicing. Both the elected and the unelected medical and political tyrants have induced fear, panic and the mistrust of other people, thus creating division.

However, the God-fearing (commandment keepers) still have reason to be joyful, for they know this evil season will end and they will inherit “the fullness of joy forever” in the Kingdom of God when Messiah returns to this earth. (Rev.20: 4 – 6; Rev.2: 26 -27; & 2Tim 4: 1)

The term “joy’ is defined as a feeling of great pleasure and happiness; gladness of heart; rejoice, delight, jubilant, on cloud nine, etc.

Did you ever cry tears of joy and/or sorrow? Over the years, I have on many occasions. Depending upon a particular situation, we humans can cry tears of sorrow or joy.

As one writer expressed it –“Joy is an emotional excitement over blessings received or expected. It is a gift from God that resides in us all.”

Here’s five types of joy as revealed in the bible.

1 — Foolish – Folly (a foolish act, idea or practice) is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding (wisdom) walks uprightly (keeps God’s commandments). (Prov.15: 21)

2 — Motherly – And Mary said, “My soul does magnify the Lord, And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour.”(Lk.1: 46 – 47)

3 — Everlasting/future –Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy… (Isa.51: 11)

4 — Great –many taken with palsies (paralysis), and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city. (Act 8: 8)

5 — Answered Prayers: Hitherto have you asked nothing in my name: ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be full. (Jn.16: 24)

If we are following the true Messiah (Yahshua) and obeying the Creator’s commandments, statutes (holy days) and judgments as did Messiah, no matter how difficult the situations are in our lives, we can still have joy in our hearts.

As revealed in Ps 16: 11 — “You will show me the path of life: in your presence is fulness of joy; at your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

Eternal life, everlasting joy and pleasures with the Creator, the great I AM and his son, Yahshua, will be the inheritance of the faithful and obedient. (See Matt 5: 19 -20 & Jn.2: 29)

All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name.

Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth–God’s Word (Jn.17: 17 & Ps.119: 142).

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
