A closer walk with our beloved friend.

A Strong City To


Author: ropheka

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

  1. Yes indeed but there are snakes in all cities that must be utterly stomped upon and crushed!
    Taking ownership is crucial! Then peace has a chance to be achieved!

    • They do not exist in the city of God though.

      • Hey Joseph my Brother in Christ! You pointed out the operative word which is all part of the inevitability you allude to here; and that is WAR! It is on the way Big Time! Good of you to point these things out!
        God bless!

        Oh absolutely not; and that is something to really look forward to and make sure we are deserving of it, so steadfastly do our Father’s will! But so many are on the road to perdition not abiding in His will; we see their serpentine deeds abounding in this world today, even here on the internet too!

        I appreciated the clarification and all I add is we must do our best to live up to our responsibilities and obligations as true servants of God! Not to turn a blind eye or pass the buck as they say! Going along to get along in this world can be a one way ticket to the infernal pit! To ignore evil in our presence is to be complicit with it! Even just guilt by association! Look how many did that for Hitler and the Third Reich!
        This why I shun witch and devil type people and always make sure they know I reject them and their ways! In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.


      • The more we surrender to the will of the world the farther we fasll away from Jesus.
        That is not a scarifice I am willing to make

  2. Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:
    Well put; and far too many are willing to surrender to the crooked ways of the world, with many as I see it being bought with money and favor as Judas Iscariot was, when he put this world and its trinkets above our Lord and Savior!

    We either truly Love Jesus Christ with all of our heart putting Him above all other considerations or we do not, and we are all being put to the test in this life to determine that!

    I see the US government and all others as caldrons of corruption, deception and rejection of the Almighty; sitting atop their thrones of lust for power and the world’s rich’s! Gluttons they are and shall they die!

    Romans 11:12 “and if the fall of them is the riches of a world, and the diminution of them the riches of nations, how much more the fullness of them?”

    People are selling out in multitudes today, some would and do sell their own mother or children!

    Matthew 16:23-28 Amplified Bible (AMP)
    But Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on things of God, but on things of man.” Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. For whoever wishes to save his life [in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through death], but whoever loses his life [in this world] for My sake will find it [that is, life with Me for all eternity]. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world [wealth, fame, success], but forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory and majesty of His Father with His angels, and THEN HE WILL REPAY EACH ONE IN ACCORDANCE WITH WHAT HE HAS DONE. “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, there are some of those standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”

    Many have already decided they prefer to gain the whole world or to receive all the world has to offer—money, fame, pleasure, power, prestige, etc. But they ignore God’s Truth that to lose one’s soul is to die without a right relationship with Christ and then to spend an eternity in the lake of fire.

    Now to me, that is the dumbest and stupidest thing I could do with “my life opportunity that God has bestowed upon me,” not the DAMNED world; and it’s so simple and plain to see this truth! We’re all being put to the test and many will fail, while some will pass this test and move on into God’s presence and glory; in bliss forever! Can the richest and most powerful among us lead me to that eternal life? Never; and all of them put together mean nothing to me, I’m never impressed by fools! Amen.

    God bless.

    • I agree about the government leaders. They are very arrogant and believe they are invincible. Boy are they in for a surprise.

      Most folks in Europe got conned into falling for surrendering their rights on the condition the government take care of them from cardle to grave. Boy did they get a wake up call with the scamdemic.

      They want to do it here but I say instead of giving out government welfare why not pay a livable wage like they did forty years ago.

      • Yes Joseph, that is what had happened and is still happening now globally! The father of all lies has his many minions in key positions everywhere! Many were easily tempted y the riches of the world to bow down to evil and give the devil his due for power! Look at the Clinton’s or Biden and so many others!

        I’ve been to Europe some years ago and it’s radically changed from what those there now tell me with so much power over the people as underlings! I’ve learned by now that regardless of wages those in power don’t give a rat’s ass about the people they rule!
        Power goes to their heads always vying for more to get top the very, very top positions; like the adage they can never get enough. Christ told His disciples that they must use authority in a godly fashion, not for self-aggrandizement or material gains as the Gentiles of that time had used it; and we see most still do!

        Like the cliché, “power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” If God’s gifts or responsibilities he bestows upon us are not received and used with the love by which they were given, they will definitely be a huge part recipient’s corruption like a poison instead of a blessing, just as they had corrupted the Corinthians.

        Some Scriptures that come to mind which I see as pointing out clearly what is going on in this world now!

        Proverbs 24:20-21”For the evil man has no future; the lamp of the wicked will be extinguished. 21My son, fear the LORD and the king, and do not associate with the rebellious.”

        1 Corinthians 15:33 “Don’t let anyone deceive you. Associating with bad people will ruin decent people.”

        2 Peter 2:19 “They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved.”

        2 Timothy 3:1-5 “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.”

        Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

        James 4:4 “You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”

        Proverbs 29:12 “If a ruler listens to falsehood, all his officials will be wicked.”

        Hosea9:9 “They have deeply corrupted themselves as in the days of Gibeah; He will remember their guilt; He will punish their sins.”

        I’m not a doomsday prophet I’m just reporting the facts; or like Detective Friday of the old TV show Dragnet would say,
        ‘Just the Facts. Ma’am’

      • I was guided to a great site by The Holy Spirt with informative videos that teach the truth, a lot of I never heard before but all make sense. Prager univicity on youtube

      • Thank you Brother Joseph! Yes This online Educational Christian Minded University is chock full of very strong information that is so accurate and truthful even aside from the Scriptures the current events too! Thank you very much for thinking of me!
        As a matter of fact tonight this will be my entertainment to watch a couple of these video pod casts! This man knows his stuff and is a good man; like you are!
        God bless you and yours!

      • Thank you.
        I show two a day to mom and boy does it get her talking with her friend
        I find that they are Christian based and very useful.
        May Jehovah Hesah ( God of love ) bless you with bountiful love today

      • You’re right about all of that Joseph and I bet they must get very inspired to talk about such good Christian matters! Glad to hear you got that good communication going there! I had just listened to Dennis on this topic and it was spot on!

        Hint; I know you and me sitting on a jet airliner would be looking at our Bible and not Playboy! In this so secular world now the Ten Commandments are looked upon so negatively now by far too many people! I just thought how Scriptures tell us in the End Time the followers of Jesus Christ will be persecuted and that has begun in earnest many years back, getting worse exponentially by the year now, especially now that evil Marxism has gotten a foothold with so many nations where like here in the US Marxist Communism an evil ideology is acceptable by all generations now here and Christians are weirdos or believers of fairy-tales!!! Which group of believers have done a better job of leading societies alone is an indicator of who is serving God and who stands with Satan!

        Keep the faith and love God with all your heart as you do!
