The Same Thing as A

A man who makes a vow to the Lord or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do. Numbers 30:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A pledge is the same thing as a contract.

A contract can be verbal as well as written.

It can be between friends, or family as well as an employer. When you make a pledge to do something or not do something you should work your hardest to fulfill that pledge to the letter.

Anything else is a lie and Jehovah detests liars. Jehovah takes your word seriously, so you better as well.

The Lord detests lying lips. Proverbs 12:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A man or woman is only as good as their word. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now if circumstances beyond your control happen and you cannot fulfill the pledge that is forgivable.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ) bless me with the wisdom of when to say yes and when to say no. Please bless me with the fortitude to let my word be law in my life. I deeply implore this of You in the name of He whose word is the supreme law, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

Believe It or Not There Are

 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Believe it or not there are folks that live as if they believe they are sinless.

Whenever the do something wrong they quickly make up excuses for why A: that it not what really happened,

B: it was not their fault or

C: it is okay because everyone else is doing it.

Trying to convince them of their wrong doing is exhaustive.

I have found the best last response to these lies is :

“You may lie to me and if you repeat the lie enough, even convince yourself, but you cannot con Jesus.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

and then walk away.

It shocks even the so called “unbelievers”.

Many times we commit sins without even knowing it. That is why we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits guidance and quickly repent of the sin before its roots grow too deep. Then, it is a real battle to conquer them. With the help of the Holy Spirit this can be accomplished.

Pull out your sins when they first occur to prevent them from taking root unless you want a real battle on your hands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent ( which means we are to admit what we did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness, stop committing the sin and make restitution for the offence committed- so if we sold something from someone we are to give it back), Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies Me) bless me with the Holy Spirits help to convict me when I grieve You and the help me repent so as to remain a child of Your with whom You are well pleased. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose blood brought me redemption Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Are Not To

 After the Lord had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has Job 42:7 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jobs friends were guilty of giving bad advice. But, they did so out of love for Job. They did so to try to make things right in his life. I am sure he realized this and that is why he asked Jehovah to forgive them.

We all receive bad advice from others who have good intentions.

We are not to hold it against them but rather be grateful to them that they cared enough to offer the advice.

We are to forgive others for their flawed advice and ask Jehovah to prevent us from giving it. When we do give it we are to sincerely repent.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

We are as well, to ask Jehovah to forgive them for the bad advice as we are to forgive them.

On the flip side of the coin we are to apologize to those we have unintentionally given bad advice to as well as ask Jehovah to forgive us and to bless us with the means to reconcile with the offended ones.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth) forgive my well meaning friends when they innocently provide faulty advice to my problems. They are but simple folk compared to Your wisdom. Please bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance to always provide Divine guidance when called upon by others. I humbly request this in the name of the best advice giver there ever was Jesus Christ. Amen

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

 Do Not Act Like

Do not act like the sinful people of the world. Let God change your life. First of all, let Him give you a new mind. Then you will know what God wants you to do. And the things you do will be good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I remember when a young man they used to have movie critics that would rate whether movies were good or bad. From my experience when I listened to them and paid good money to watch the film, it was a horrible film. The films they panned were the ones I enjoyed watching.

I remember talking with work mates about new series that came out on TV. Even though they did not like the shows they watched them because they wanted to be with the in crowd.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

However, I consider them to be cattle just being led by the puppets of big business and foolishly wasting their money to stay cool all the while becoming slaves to the bank by going deeply in debt. None of them look to happy to me.

Now, following the advice Jehovah has blessed me with in the Bible has brought me a lot of wisdom, peace, comfort, strength, integrity and joy. Many believe I am weird for living the Christian lifestyle.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

I listen to Jesus rather than man because He only wants what is best for me and has the knowledge to guide me on how to attain it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge. Romans 11:33) for blessing me with Your supreme knowledge for every aspect of my life. You have prevented a lot of tragedy in my life as well as have blessed me with living a meaningful life. I thank You in the name of the best Guidance Councillor Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

Another Word For

So I gave them up to the stubbornness of their heart, To walk in [the path of] their own counsel. Psalms 81:12 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version 

Stubbornness is another word for selfishness.

laugh at fools

Stubbornness is refusing to listen to others because they are telling you something you do not want to hear.

So a doctor informs a diabetic they cannot drink soda pop any more. The diabetic tells the doctor to stuff it, continues on drinking soda pop. One day his body cannot take the abuse any longer and goes into diabetic shock. Then because they are selfish (which is what immaturity is as well) instead of accepting responsibility for their actions, they blame the doctor.

Believe me, I have seen a lot of it.

When Jehovah tells us to stop doing this or to start doing that, it is for our own good, not because He is some cold hearted tyrant. Because He has given us free will, it is up to us to choose to obey or disobey. We disobey at our own peril.

To disobey Jehovahs guidance only leads to self destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rophe (Exodus 15:26 The LORD (our) Healer) always help me have a submissive heart to listen, understand and obey you in every aspect of my life. I know this leads to spiritual, physical and mental health and healing. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Healer of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Same is True with Our

 Being a natural path practitioner for over forty years it always amazes me at the stupidity and laziness of folks. They come to me with an ailment and we talk about it. When it is suggested they make lifestyle changes they become very indignant and refuse to accept responsibility for their own lives. They would rather take a magic pill or lotion to cure them of their ailment.

The same is true with our spiritual life.

We all have area’s that need realignment but refuse to take the necessary actions to cast off the filth and put on the clean garments that Christ offers. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins and what must be done to eradicate them from our lives.

And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. John 16:8 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

But, ultimately the choice is ours on whether we will take the initiative and commitment to purge ourselves of them. We refuse to do so and then cry to Jehovah to free us from the consequences of our sin.

FOLLOW JESUS

“Understanding is knowing what to do; wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is actually doing it.” — Tristan Gulberd

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (Jeremiah 23:6) The LORD Our Righteousness sending The Holy Spirit to convict me when I stray and to guide me back upon the path of righteousness when I repent. He is truly the best Guidance Councilor that is constantly leading us Heaven bound. I praise You in the name of He who guided His disciples Jesus Christ. 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

Do You Give it Back?

CHRISTIAN DEVOTION

 “Blessed be God . . ., who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Those of us who have been around the bush long enough have been through the meat grinder once or twice haven’t we. In those times of tribulation hasn’t God comforted you and encouraged you?

Hasn’t He in His divine love healed you?

So, where is your gratitude?

When someone does something nice for you, shouldn’t you return the favor?

When you see someone suffering shouldn’t you go to them and emulate what God did for you?

You know, the most painful and horrible experience in my life was being in an abusive relationship and the healing that took place afterwards.

In my teaching days I witnessed a lot of hurt and pain because of students being in an abusive situation. It broke my heart. I would sit them down and share my experience with them. Because I had walked that mile in their shoes they listened to me. In the end it helped guide many of them to Jesus.

Please for the love of Christ and your fellow men, when you see someone suffering reach  out to them.

Not only can it be a comforting and encouraging experience to them, it can also be an opportunity to share Jesus with them. This in turn may help bring them into our Holy family.

If you are experiencing a time of great difficulty and or pain and are reading this, take heart. God is not stupid. Perhaps He is allowing this experience to train you to help others in the future.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) – Is 49:26 for blessing me with Your strength, comfort and encouragement when I endured the fiery times of trouble, anguish and confusion. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay it forward to someone who is experiencing the fire storms of life to help them and to guide them to the greatest Strengthener of all, You. In the name of He who was strong enough to endure the agony of the cross for His love of me, Jesus Christ I humbly ask. 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

He’s the Best Guide.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

God … will be our guide even to the end. Psalm 48:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jehovah is my guide in life (Well actually He sends the Holy Spirit to be my guidance councilor, and He is the best guide.).

I’ll let you in on a special secret: be fore I make any decisions I always wait and pray to God for the answer. He never steers me wrong.

If I foolishly decide on the moment most times it ends in disaster.

He who hurries, rushes to disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

If someone tries to pressure you into making a snap decision it is because they do not want you to seek council.

You know why?

It’s because then their wicked veil will be lifted and the truth will be revealed.

And what is the truth?

The truth is it is a con and it will end in your disaster.

Now how does God answer my inquiry?

The answer is really quite obvious, the Bible. The Bible is Gods answer book. Anything you need guidance for is answered with in its precious scared pages.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding. Proverbs 23:23 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

Now, how do you buy the truth?

You purchase it with your time and commitment to obey its wisdom.

The Holy Spirit is the answer man to all of lifes questions. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending The Holy Spirit Rohi ( The Holy Spirit is our Divine Shepherd ) Psalm 23 to be my guide in life. He guides me upon Your chosen path in my life that leads to Your Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Only Way To

NO DOMINION Discretion is a life giving fountain to those who possess it, but discipline is wasted on fools. Proverbs 16:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The only way to possess discretion is by daily requesting it from He whose discretion is the best there is, that is Jehovah. We need to moment by moment depend upon the Holy Spirits discretion in every nick and cranny of our life.

Otherwise, we are easy prey for the scammers and con artists out there. The worst one of them all of course is satan. He will con you all the way into Hell if you let him. I have learned this the hard way but I pray the lesson is never forgotten.

Depend upon the Holy Spirit for success. Anything else, is a recipe for failure and disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1) – The LORD My Light for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to shine His brilliant light of wisdom to guide me to righteous discretion. It has prevented a lot of grief in my life and blessed me with abundant peace.                                                                             I sing my praise unto You in the name of the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

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
