A closer walk with our beloved friend.

The First Two were Arrogant.

Then the king sent to Elijah a captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men to seize the prophet]. And he went up to him, and behold, he was sitting on the top of a hill. And the captain said to him, “Man of God, the king says, ‘Come down.’” Elijah replied to the captain of fifty, “So if I am a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men].” Then fire fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. So King Ahaziah again sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And he said to him, “Man of God, thus says the king, ‘Come down quickly.’” Elijah answered them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men].” And the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 2 Kings 1:9-13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The first two were arrogant with a man they knew was a man from Jehovah. They were disrespectful. They were not asking respectfully of the man of Jehovah but were arrogantly demanding. They paid the price.

I have found that those who bully one of Jehovahs children pay a very dear price (it is not fire from Heaven but it is severe none the less).

So Ahaziah again sent a captain of a third fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And the third captain of fifty went up and came bowed down on his knees before Elijah, and begged him [for compassion] and said to him, “O man of God, please let my life and the lives of your servants, these fifty, be precious in your sight. Behold, fire came down from heaven and consumed the first two captains of fifty with their fifties; but now let my life be precious in your sight.” The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.” So he stood and went down with him to the king. 2 Kings 1:14-15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The last man was respectful and humble and did not suffer the same fate as the previous two.

I have found that when one is respectful towards one of Jehovah children they are blessed, even if they are not of His family. Be respectful unto everyone but especially a child of Jehovah or you will pay a very heavy price.

Be respectful unto all, but especially those of Jehovahs family. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) bless me to never be disrespectful towards anyone, especially one of Your servants. I humbly request this in the name of my most respectful King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
