    Joy …..

    is an oil for mourning:Isaiah 61:3 (KJV)To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified

    is given by GOD:Ecclesiastes. 2:26 (KJV)26 For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

    is caused by the goodness of the LORD: I Kings 8:66 (KJV)66 On the eighth day he sent the people away: and they blessed the king, and went unto their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that the Lord had done for David his servant, and for Israel his people.  Job 33:26 (KJV)26 He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

    will cause the widows heart to sing…Job 29:13 (KJV)13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.

    is your strength: Nehemiah 8:10 (KJV)10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

    will be felt in your heartIsaiah 65:14 (KJV) 14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.

    is one of the Fruits of the Spirit, that shows CHRIST lives in you: Galatians 5:22 (KJV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

    Even when you don’t remember why (your memory is gone….), GOD will still give you joyEcclesiastes 5:20 (KJV) 20 For he shall not much remember the days of his life; because God answereth him in the joy of his heart.

    is caused by:

    accepting JESUS CHRIST as your SAVIOUR!!!Psalm 21:1 (KJV)21 The king shall joy in thy strength, O Lord; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!  Psalm 35:9 (KJV)And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation.  Isaiah 61:10 (KJV)10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

    putting trust in the LORD, being defended by the LORD, and by loving the LORD:Psalm 5:11  (KJV)11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

    being in HIS presence: Psalm 16:11 (KJV)11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

    walking in the light of HIS glorious countenance:Psalm 89:15 (KJV)15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.  Acts 2:27-29 (KJV)27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

    being a counselor of peaceProverbs 12:20 (KJV)20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.

    GOD putting the acceptance seal on HIS work thru you: Ecclesiastes 9:7 (KJV)Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works.

    the Harvest of Souls:Isaiah 9:3 (KJV)Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

    returning to the LORD, if you are a prodigal son…. Isaiah 35:10 (KJV)10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.  Isaiah 51:11 (KJV)11 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; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

    being hated:Isaiah 60:15 (KJV) 15 Whereas thou has been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.

    hearing and reading HIS Precious WORDJeremiah 15:16 (KJV) 16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts. Matthew 13:20 (KJV) 20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;  Luke 8:13 (KJV)13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

    And ….

    this JOY cannot be taken from you by anyone, for any reason:John 16:22 (KJV) 22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

    Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

    (8) Whom, having not seen.--Said in contrast to the word "revelation" in the last verse: "whom you love already, though He is not yet revealed, so that you have not as yet seen Him." There seems to be a kind of tender pity in the words, as spoken by one who himself had seen so abundantly (Acts 4:20; Acts 10:41; 2Peter 1:16). In this and the following verse we return again from the sorrow to the joy, and to the true cause of that joy, which is only to be found in the love of Jesus Christ. There is another reading, though not so good either in sense or in authority, "whom, without knowingHim, ye love." Bengel remarks that this is intended for a paradox, sight and knowledge being the usual parents of love.

    Ye love.--The word of calm and divinely-given attachment, in fact the usual word in the New Testament, that which Christ used in questioning the writer (John 20:15), not the word of warm human friendship with which St. Peter then answered Him.

    In whom.--To be construed, not with "ye rejoice," but with "believing." The participles give the grounds of the rejoicing: "because at present without seeing ye believe in Him none the less, therefore ye rejoice." The word "rejoice" takes us back to 1Peter 1:6 : "ye greatly rejoice, I repeat." Notice, again, the stress laid on faith: we have already had it three times mentioned. St. Peter, whose own faith gained him his name and prerogative, is, at least, as much the Apostle of faith as St. Paul is, though his conception of it, perhaps, slightly differs from St. Paul's. The definition given by the writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews (Hebrews 11:1) might have been, perhaps was, drawn from a study of St. Peter's writings. Our present verse gives us the leading thought of "faith" as it appears in both of these works addressed to Hebrews, viz., its being the opposite of sight, "the evidence of things not seen," rather than as the opposite of works. And the main object of both these Epistles is to keep the Hebrews from slipping back from internal to external religion, i.e., to strengthen faith. (Comp. Hebrews 3:12.) The Apostle is full of admiration for a faith which (unlike his own) was not based on sight. (See John 20:29--an incident which may have been in the writer's mind.) . . .

    Pulpit Commentary

    Verse 8.- Whom having not seen, ye love. Some ancient manuscripts read οὐκ εἰδότες, "although ye know him not:" but the reading ἰδόντεςis best supported, and gives the better sense. The Christians of Asia Minor had not seen the gracious face of the Lord, as St. Peter had. But though they had never known him after the flesh, they knew him by the inner knowledge of spiritual communion, and, having learned to love him, had attained the blessing promised to those who had not seen, but yet had believed. St. Peter may possibly be thinking of his well-remembered interview with the risen Lord (John 21:15-17). He has here the word ἀγαπᾶν, expressive of reverential love, which Christ had used in his first two questions; not the word of warm human affection (φιλεῖν) which he himself had employed in his three answers. In whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. The words, "in whom" (εἰς ὅν, literally, "on whom now not looking, but believing"), are to be taken with the participles "seeing" and "believing," not with "ye rejoice." St. Peter insists on the necessity and blessedness of faith as earnestly as St. Paul does, though with him the antithesis is rather between faith and sight than between faith and works. As a tact, St. Peter's readers had never seen the Lord; now, though not seeing him with the outward eye, they realized his presence by faith, and in that presence they rejoiced. The verb is that used in ver. 6 - they rejoiced greatly, they exulted, and that though they saw him not. Human love needs the seen presence of the beloved one to complete the fullness of its joy (2 John 12); but their joy was even amid afflictions unspeakable - like all our deepest and holiest feelings, not to be expressed in words; and it was glorified by the unseen presence of Christ. His chosen behold even now, as in a glass, the glory of the Lord, and, beholding, are changed into the same image from glory to glory. Joy in the Lord is a foretaste of the joy of heaven, and is irradiated by glimpses of the glory that shall be revealed. Others, as Huther and Alford, again give to the verb ἀγαλλιᾶσθε, "ye rejoice," a quasi-future sense. The word for "unspeakable" (ἀνεκλαλητός) is found only here.

    Bible, King James Version


    1 Peter


    1Pet.1

    [1] Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
    [2] Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
    [3] Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
    [4] To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
    [5] Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
    [6] Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
    [7] That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
    [8] Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
    [9] Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
    [10] Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
    [11] Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
    [12] Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
    [13] Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
    [14] As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
    [15] But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
    [16] Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
    [17] And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
    [18] Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
    [19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
    [20] Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
    [21] Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
    [22] Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
    [23] Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
    [24] For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
    [25] But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

    1Pet.2

    [1] Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
    [2] As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
    [3] If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
    [4] To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
    [5] Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
    [6] Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
    [7] Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
    [8] And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
    [9] But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
    [10] Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
    [11] Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
    [12] Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
    [13] Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
    [14] Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.
    [15] For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
    [16] As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
    [17] Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.
    [18] Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
    [19] For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
    [20] For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
    [21] For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
    [22] Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
    [23] Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
    [24] Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
    [25] For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

    1Pet.3

    [1] Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
    [2] While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
    [3] Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
    [4] But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
    [5] For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
    [6] Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
    [7] Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
    [8] Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
    [9] Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
    [10] For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
    [11] Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
    [12] For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
    [13] And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
    [14] But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
    [15] But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
    [16] Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
    [17] For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
    [18] For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
    [19] By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
    [20] Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
    [21] The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
    [22] Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

    1Pet.4

    [1] Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
    [2] That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
    [3] For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
    [4] Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
    [5] Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
    [6] For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
    [7] But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
    [8] And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
    [9] Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
    [10] As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
    [11] If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
    [12] Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
    [13] But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
    [14] If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
    [15] But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
    [16] Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
    [17] For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
    [18] And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
    [19] Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

    1Pet.5

    [1] The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
    [2] Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
    [3] Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
    [4] And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
    [5] Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
    [6] Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
    [7] Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
    [8] Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
    [9] Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
    [10] But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
    [11] To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
    [12] By Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand.
    [13] The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son.
    [14] Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
