The Only One Who

DEVINE PLANS

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:8-10 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Have you ever wondered why it seems as if everyone is angry at something these days?

Have you noticed how folks are always changing their jobs so much these days?

Have you ever wondered why folks are such addicts to sports teams, movie stars and musicians these days (it has always existed but no where near to the level it is at today)?

I believe the reason is because they have no purpose in their lives so they try to find purpose in sports teams, musicians, movie stars and participating in charitable events they do not have their heart in to. Of course they find no real meaning to their lives.

The only one who can accomplish that is Jesus.

Without purpose life has no meaning, it is trivial, pointless and petty. Jesus is the only one who blesses us with purpose here in this life and in the eternal one that is to come. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So, why do most folks refuse to go to Jesus for meaning and purpose in their lives?

Because they are too arrogant, selfish and stubborn to surrender their will to Christs. They regret in now but will really regret in in their final destination which is Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalm 10:16 for blessing me with purpose, meaning and fulfillment in my life. That of course is to be Your humble servant. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

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

My Climate Recipe

HARD WORK

You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. Psalm 8:6-8 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament   personal hygiene

Recently we are constantly being bombarded on TV news with segments about these so called “climate activists” concerned about the rising temperatures.

Okay, if you are so concerned about climate change here is my climate recipe: Instead of using soap to wash yourselves with why not use a body brush. In my opinion (and I have successfully being using them for decades now) it does a better job than soap. Talking about showers or baths , how about you only have one bath every other day. I do and there is no body odor to me. personal  routine

Instead of using commercial underarm deodorant (which is harmful to your body in my opinion) why not use earth crystals which can be purchased at a health food store (yes, they are expensive but they also last for years compared to how long the commercial ones last).

Instead of using dish washing detergent why not use salt? Again, I have been doing this for years and the iodine in the salt kills the germs. While we are at it, instead of using a dishwasher why not try the old hand washing? I have never gotten sick from it.

Instead of using laundry detergent why not use baking soda? Again, I have been doing these things for decades now with no adverse effects. Instead of using the dryer why not hang up your clothes to dry? Please no immature cry babies complaining because they see their neighbors underwear. We did it for decades with no adverse affect on others so stop being so self righteous and grow up.

Instead of using fast food restaurant cutlery (throw away drinking cup and wrappers why not take in reusable containers? It is reusable so nothing is going in a landfill.

In the nice weather , if you live in a town, why not bicycle or walk to and from work? This is also a great way to relieve stress. Instead of clogging up the highways driving to and from work why not take the bus or train?

Instead of buying clothing made of polyester why not buy clothes made from wool and or cotton?

Why not grow a raised garden in your backyard or on your balcony? Why not have two rain barrels at each rain spout on your house? These will not only catch the rain and help prevent flooding but can also be used to water your garden and lawn which puts less stress on the town water supply and purification stations? Instead of using pesticides why not use organic pesticides like garlic and marigold? I do it and it works great for all kinds of pests and you get to eat fresh grown organic.

These are but a few tips to help keep our planet (and it is a planet not “mother earth, which is a cultist stupid word for our planet. It is giving a fictitious female a deity of worshiping her instead of the Creator of the earth which is satnic).

I bet most of you will not do these.

You know why?

Because, you are too lazy and do not want to make the commitment.

So instead of being self righteous and using climate change as an excuse to pump of your own over inflated ego why not get off your butts and put your money where your mouth is or shut up.

We are care takers of this planet not owners. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) Isaiah 40:28 (not “mother earth) for blessing me with the wisdom on how to make a personal commitment to caring for the paradise you have created for us (planet earth) which we are selfishly destroying. Please help others take up the same banner to help heal this planet which we were given to be care takers of. I humbly request this in the name of He who will reign on this planet after it has been healed Jesus Christ. Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared Revelation 21:1Holy Bible, New Living Testament Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Notice it Says Continually.

 

Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence]. 1 Chronicles 16:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says continually.

Have you ever seen a chicken after its head has been chopped off ( those who grew up on a farm fifty years ago know what I am referring to, sorry if it offends you city slickers) ? The chickens body flows and runs all around the place for a minute or two.

How many of us do this when unexpected problems or catastrophes slam into us?

I know in my early walk with Christ this occurred many times at the slightest incident. Now when the event first occurs there is the initial shock and worry but I do as the Holy Spirit has trained me to do over many decades: I take it to the Lord in prayer and trust His providence to see me through, that is what faith is. This only becomes second nature because of continuous daily communion with Him.

He Divinely guides most of my every moves. I say most because there are moments in all of our lives where we surrender to selfish fleshly desires.

He always provides me with strength to accomplish the daily tasks He assigns us and yes He does assign us daily tasks as every King does his servants.

Just as Christ is our Heavenly King, so too are we His earthly servants. Joseph son of Jehovah.

The more we experience this the stronger our trust in Him to provide for and protect us in our disasters.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me continuously with Your wonderful presence every moment of my life. I cherish our communion together. Thank you for walking with me through the many trials and tribulations experienced in my walk with You and for walking with me through my crucifixion, being put through the furnace to burn off the dross. I know these event were necessary and that they would have been impossible to accomplish if You were not there with me. I exalt You in the name of He who blessed all He spent time with as He walked amongst us Jesus CHRIST. Amen.

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

Do You Adhere To

 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name John 1:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you adhere to Christ?

To adhere to means to maintain loyalty and to bind oneself to observance ( adhere to the rules)

Are you loyal unto Christ?

Do you place your allegiance unto Him above your family, career and or possessions? Yes there are rules when you are a child of Jehovah (mainly Gods Law which states we are to do unto others as we would like them to do to us and to not do to others as we do not want them to do to us). Do you do to others as you would like them to do to you? That means to be respectful and to help others when you see they need help ( That does not mean to support those who refuse to take responsibility for their actions and refuse to help themselves. We “ owe “ them nothing ). Do you not do unto others as you do not want them to do to you ( that means no bullying or gossiping, backstabbing or cheating ) ? Do you trust Christ? Do you trust Christ with your finances? When He directs you to give of your finances even though it will hurt do you obey Him? Do you trust Him in your relationships? So say you meet someone you like but He sees what they are really like and directs you to end the relationship, do you trust Him to obey?

Do you rely upon Christ?

Do you daily rely upon Christ for guidance? So say you want a job and a good one is offered to you but you feel Christ saying no, will you walk away from it? Do you rely upon Christ in your interpersonal relationships? So say someone has done you wrong, do you rely upon Christ to give you the power to forgive them? If the abuse is habitual and Christ directs you to walk away from the relationship ( even if it is family ) will you walk away from them? Do you rely upon Him to find the proper spouse for you ( instead of the on line dating service where people can be as phony as a three dollar bill ) And, if He direct you to remain single will you rely upon Him to fill the void a spouse can fill?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for helping me adhere to Your righteous Holy manner in my behaviour in my relationship to You. I exalt You in the name of He whose total manner emulated His complete adherence unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This Does Not Make Sense.

 Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth and faithfulness. Psalm 31:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This does not make sense.

These are the words spoken by every Christian. I can not count the number of times my Beloved ask me to do something that made no sense.

There were the ones He asked me to go up against were more powerful than me and had all the cards stacked in their favour. Except for the winning card of course, Jehovah had that card. Yes I was terrified but obedient. When the time came for the showdown Jehovah blessed me with courage and wisdom that brought the haughty crashing down.

The first few times that happened I was in shock and awe. The more frequent it happens the stronger my faith came in Jehovah the warrior being by my side.

There were many times when I felt my Beloved asking me to make huge changes in my life that were way out of my comfort zone. Yes, I was terrified but obedient. In the end I praise Him every day for that blessing because it made me grow in trust in Him and changed me so much for the better.

Sometimes when we are called to obey, the fear does not subside and we are expected to move against the fear. One must choose to do it afraid.” Elisabeth Elliot

Yes there are many times Jehovah will ask you to do things that make no sense to you but make perfect sense to Him. Obey and watch and experience the amazing things that will happen in your life when you are obedient.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your voice gently speaking to me in my daily life and for blessing me with increased trust in You when You ask me to do that which I do not understand. I extol Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Grandmas Sweater.

 But the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will certainly buy it from you for a price. I will not offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God which cost me nothing.” So David purchased the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. 2 Samuel 24:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

David paid for this because He wanted Jehovah to know it was a personal gift unto Him as a present of love, respect and gratefulness.

The best Christmas present I received every year was grandams sweater. It took her many months to knit it and it always felt of her love. Mom would have to fight with me to get it off of me to wash it.

Think of how cherished your gift is to Jehovah when it took a lot of time and effort to make it and freely offer it to Him as an act of love unto Him.

Do you insult Jehovah by giving Him something that cost you nothing or something cheap like you would buy in a Dollar Store?

For a church supper do you go out and buy something cheap at the grocery store instead of taking the time and effort into making a home made meal? This is a gathering of His people to commune with each other and Him. That is a cheap gift. That is an insult to Him.

And when you present the lame and the sick, is it not evil? Offer such a thing [as a blind or lame or sick animal] to your governor [as a gift or as payment for your taxes]. Would he be pleased with you? Or would he receive you graciously?” says the Lord of hosts. Malachi 1:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you give unto Jehovah from your heart that is more precious to Him than the most expensive gift given out of obligation. A gift from the heart is the most precious gift. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me so generously and with the best. Please always guide me to give nothing less back to You as a gift of love and appreciation every day. I thank You in the name of He who gave His precious blood unto me as the price of adoption unto Your magnificent family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Yield and Submit.

WE MUST LET GO

 “Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you. Job 22:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes the two. It takes the two parts in this verse before you are blessed.

Number one is to stop.

Stop being independent and stubborn. Jehovah cannot and will not ever attempt to help someone who refuses help. We must yield our will and wants and submit unto Him.

The next part is just as difficult.

To submit ourselves unto Jehovah means we are to give Him total control over our lives like a horse submits to the reins of its rider.

Once these two difficult tasks are completed then come the blessing. The blessing may be a physical blessing but there is always a spiritual blessing. The spiritual blessing of course is that there is a lot less stress in your life because you trust Jehovah has control of your life. The same can be said for worry. Instead your life is filled with peace, contentment and a knowledge of security knowing we have a superior being directing and helping us live a Divine life.

Leaving it in Jehovahs hands is the better choice. He knows what He is doing while we only think we know what we are doing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the privilege of being a humble servant of the most noble King. Please bless me to always have a submissive heart unto Your will in every aspect of my life. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in Your majestic name. Amen.

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