I Know This is Not True.

christ, will lead 

Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent, and they will receive an inheritance that lasts forever. Psalm 37:18 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Having walked with my Beloved for over forty years I know this is not true. There have been times when my Love did not supply my needs.

But, that was not His fault, it was mine.

He asked me to go here and I stubbornly refused to and went there. So, of course I did not receive the blessing.

“Men do not reject the Jehovah because He contradicts Himself but because He contradicts them.” Paul Harvey

Think of it like this: a rich man informs a homeless man that he will buy him all the groceries he wants if he meets him at a certain grocery store at a certain time. The homeless man goes to a fast food restaurant instead. A few days later they meet again and the homeless man demands to know where the rich man was. The rich man informs the homeless man he was waiting for him at the grocery store.

If you desire Jehovah to meet your daily needs, you must agree to His commands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now of course we know that the inheritance is our eternal home in Heaven.

Prayer: Thank you oh gracious Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide for blessing me with Your providential sustenance every day. Thank you for blessing me with providing me with a wonderful beautiful home in Heaven when I come into Your loving arms. I exalt You in the name of He whose cherished blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do You Experience It Too?

JEHOVAH ALWAYS SUPPLIES

 

 A good man obtains favor from the LORD, but the LORD condemns a crafty man. Proverbs 12:2, New International Version

You’re not as smart as you think.

Is it just me or do you experience it too?

It seems as if everyone is out for the con. Many merchants try to sell you their products promising a new and improved you. Yet even after spending a lot of money, you are the same you.

Where I live almost everything is pirated. Oh sure it will have the logo on it and the salesman or woman will swear it is original, but after careful examination you discover it is fake.

How about someone who pretends to be your friend, just because they want to con you into giving them something you own.

Again, here it is important to learn English. The locals all pretend to be your best friend as long as you are willing to teach them for free. When you smarten up and justify inform them you expect to get paid, they look at you like you are crap and then throw you away like yesterdays garbage?

Does it ever make you want to throw your hands up and quit being a nice guy or girl?

Please do not give up.

The important thing to remember is that God promises to reward us for our behavior.

If we do good we receive good, if not in this life, in our eternal life in Heaven.

If we do bad, we have fiery coals of retribution poured upon us. Again, if not in this life, than in the eternal life in Hell.

This is a warning and a blessing.

 

Which are you going to reap?

As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it. Job 4:8  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 2 Corinthians 9:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Which crops are you sowing, the crops of righteousness or, the vile filthy wicked crops of the devil?

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shaddai (God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) give me the strength to always walk the walk of the righteous and not give up in living a holy life dedicated to You. In the name of our great leader Jesus Christ I pray. Amen

(editors note: this was written when I was a teacher in China which was a few years ago)

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Are You Ready For ?

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2 New International Version

 How do you behave towards others?

How do you treat your neighbors, friends, family, classmates, co-workers, and people on the bus or anywhere we travel throughout our day?

When we conduct ourselves in a humble, gentle manner our lives will be much less stressful and we find ourselves a lot more happier.

Let’s dissect each of these words and then perhaps and then you may see how to incorporate them into your daily living.

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive

Do you walk around with a chip on your shoulder?

Do you look down on people who are poorer than you, come from a different country and culture?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

Are you ready for what comes around?

Gentle: free from harshness, sternness, or violence

Do you speak cruel spiteful words to others to get your jollies watching them in their hurt feelings?

Be careful, if this behavior leads to some else to commit suicide in Gods eyes you are just as guilty of murder as if you put a bullet in their head.

Are you too stern with your wives, husbands, children or subordinates?

Are you a bully?

Read about those who speak cruel words, the same applies to you.

Patient: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint, not hasty or impetuous ,steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity

Do you have patience waiting in the grocery line, or when dealing with anothers short comings or difficulty in understanding?

 

Do you stand beside a family member, friend, classmate or co-worker when dealing with difficult situations? Do you bear with another when they unintentionally do or say annoying things?

All of the above definitions come from Webster’s dictionary. The comments are my own.

Why not make a list of how you can improve yourselves with this helpful little guide. Then start working on improving yourselves one at a time.

As an added bonus you will find yourselves much less stressed and happier.

Oh and as another added bonus remember this: What goes around comes around. So how you behave towards others will be done back to you.

How do you want people to treat you?

“Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. Treat them gently” (Romans 14:1 The Message Bible).

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 The Holy Bible, The Living Translation

Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8,9 The Holy Bible, The King James Version

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up” (James 4:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation).

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Prayer: Jehovah Hosanna ( God our maker) make my every heart beat with a deep longing desire to always walk righteously in Your divine eyes and be open to expanding my ability to become more Christ like every day. In the name of our loving King Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Do You Give Honey or Do You Shoot Arrows?

 

WORDS HEAL IN LOVE A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1, New International Version

Please, always remember this verse. Write it down and keep it with you.

Do you speak words of encouragement when others are enduring difficult times? Or, do you pour hot burning colas of pain on others?

Which words do you use?

Do you comfort them and encourage them or do you criticize them and mock them?

Do you always try to say something positive to people or do you take every opportunity to cruelly mock them?

Remember this as well:” What goes around comes around.”

How you behave with others will be done back to you at sometime.

I personally prefer to uplift and encourage others. In doing so I am following in the footsteps of my beloved Jesus.

God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters. J. H. Jowett

Prayer: Please oh Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) guide my words that they may be healing and soothing to all I encounter today. In the name of the sweetest orator Jesus Christ we pray. 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

The Easy Way to a Vigorous Life.

gods-story-for-you

 The vigor of our spiritual life will be in exact proportion to the place held by the Bible in our life and thoughts. George Müller                                                                                                             

Yes if you do this simple practice you will have a vigorous life.

Every morning set aside a quiet time to listen to God as He instills wisdom on how to correctly handle every situation in our life. I say early morning because that is when I believe our minds are most clear and receptive to receiving and understanding His Word. If, however, you are more of an evening person that is okay too.

As we read His inspired word and He speaks to us, why not have a reorder, maybe on your mobile phone or mp3 player by our side and record what He is sharing with us. Then write it down on a word document.

Return to His divine revelation to you and then instill what has been revealed to you in your daily life.

Make a diary of your daily events and review it after a month. See how much your spiritual life is invigorated by this and how much closer you are to our beloved king and savior Jesus.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” 2 Timothy 3:16 (New International Version).

Prayer: That you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the extravagant gift of life, the Bible. It brings sweet life to my soul. We give thanks for this valuable gift in the name of our spiritual life giver Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are You Willing to Die to Live?

 

CHRISTIAN SCARSI have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.Galatians 2:20 New Living Translation

To gain a fantastic life we must first sacrifice a worthless one. When we become Christians we are to sacrifice the old life for the Christian life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Notice the word SACRIFICE.

This usually, but not always, entails a very painful experience.

It is usually very difficult to give up your old life. Many times it will mean walking away from bad habits and friends, indeed, maybe even family.

During this painful and trying time do not worry; Jesus is right there with you. Call out to Him and He will send His Spirit helper, The Holy Spirit to strengthen you, comfort you and encourage you.

When you come out the other end of your walk through that fiery hell, you will experience joy, peace, contentment and know you are loved like never before. You will be close to our great Emmanuel (God amongst us) and will feel such a close bond with Him the pain experienced in your walk through hell will seem trivial in comparison to the peace, joy and contentment in the loving arms of Jesus.

“The sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Rom. 8:18). New living Translation

As well read Psalms 23 for encouragement.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hossanha (The Lord our Maker) for crucifying my self to be given the priceless gift of life with Christ. In His lovely name we give thanks. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who’s Your Boss?

DEVINE PLANS

 For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.” Matthew 19:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I am in my early sixties as I write this and have never been married. Oh sure there are many times when I see couples or families my heart aches to enjoy such a blessing in my life as well.

That however, is not the path the Lord has chosen for me.

There is no way I could have served the Lord in the manner I have if there was a wife or family in my life. I have faith in our Jesus that He will reward me with unlimited love in His family when it is to our heavenly home He takes me.

So if you are single, do not allow family or society to push you in a direction contrary to God. It will only lead to misery.

Where I live now, when people get a certain age their relatives (mostly their mothers and grandmothers) constantly harass and nag them: “When are you going to get married, when are you going to get married?” When they get married then the nagging continues: “When are you going to give me a grandson, when are you going to give me a grandson?” (Not a grandchild, but a grandson. This is to support them in their old age and to carry on the family name. What a pity so many young people get married just to shut the nagging mothers and grandmothers up. They are not happy, indeed, most are terribly miserable.

Editors note: this article was written a few years back when I was living in China

Most married folks drift farther apart in their marriage the longer they are married until they are two strangers living in the same house. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have seen this come true in almost every married elder couple I have met. Indeed, many times I wonder why they even got married in the first place (most times it was because the lust of the body was stronger than the willingness to obey Jehovahs choice. It ended up with a lot of shot gun marriages. Yes, even with your grandparents).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) for the privilege of being a eunuch in order to better serve You. I know You shall reward me in Heaven. In the name of my adoring big brother Jesus Christ I give thanks for this blessing. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
