A Continuous War.

 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 Holy Bible New Living Translation

As Christians we are in a continuous war.

There is of course, war with those that are liberal minded (if it feels good do it, there is no absolute right or wrong, there is no God).

There is the constant was against demons who relish nothing more than destroying our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

But, the most brutal of all wars is raged in our hearts and minds.

Thoughts of lust, greed, anger, fear and worry are our ever present foes.

That is why it is so important to be in continuous prayer.

When these thoughts and emotions enter our minds and hearts we are to immediately call out to Jehovah to send the Holy Spirit to sweep these thoughts from us like you sweep dirt out of a house.

Then, to fill our house with the sweet fragrance of love, joy and gratitude to our loving Father Jehovah our precious Savior Jesus Christ and our strong Deliverer the Holy Spirit.

“Who sits in solitude and is quiet has escaped from three wars: hearing, speaking, seeing; yet against one thing shall he continually battle: that is, his own heart.”  St. Antony

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with the weapons required on a daily basis for the continual battle in my mind and heart. Thank you that through Your strength and wisdom victory is guaranteed. Thank you that when I lose a battle and call out to You, You sooth my soul while blessing me with healing balm for my heart. You are such a wonderful Warrior King. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

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

In the Stormy Billows

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.  And endurance develops strength of character Romans 5:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

It is in the storms of life we grow the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We grow in dependence upon Jehovah for delivery of our trials and tribulations.

We grow the most in the skills and strength He blesses us with to conquer the storms no matter how much they rage in or lives.

This is why I believe the education system in the west and the momma bears would pamper their children are doing a severe dis-service to their children. By sheltering them through the hard times they nurture spinless, entitled momma boys and girls who are unprepared for the world when they leave the nest. This is the major reason there is so much cry babying in society today in the west. The young feel entitled and expect the government to pamper them like mommy and their teachers did.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” Goethe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for blessing me with Your saving help whenever the storms are too great for me to conquer. Thank you for helping me to defeat the raging storms when You know I need to and can defeat them on my own. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the raging storm for His disciples on that lake Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What is Your Problem?

 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The Holy Bible New Living Translation

What is your problem?

Is it fear?

Believe me, I have been there more times than I can count. The majority of times it was for nothing.

Fear is a lack of trust in Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Being mere mortals we will always have moments of fear. The difference is that those of us who have walked with Christ long enough know enough to conquer that fear by immediately praying unto Jesus and having the confidence He will take care of it for us. That does not mean that we will just sit back on out buts and wait for Him to do all the work.

Faith means that sometimes we sit back and allow Jehovah to work His will through the problem with the belief that He will take care of it.

trust in God

It also means that we are willing to follow His commands, even though, many times we do not see nor understand what He is doing. At first this was a terrifying experience for me. Now, I just laugh a wait to see just how unusual a way He will resolve the issue (and in my life it is always in unusual ways).

Are you discouraged?

Boy have I traveled down that road with that heavy load on my back. Again at first it is difficult to have faith that Jehovah will lift us up. Sometimes He allows us to endure through the experience to build our character up.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” — Goethe

Sometimes, He lovingly comforts, encourages and strengthens us to continue on. Jehovah is always there to help us in the best manner for victory over the challenges of life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for always being there. Thank you my love for always caring. Thank you my cherished Father Jehovah), best friend (Jesus Christ) and amazing Teacher The Holy Spirit) for all the help You have blessed me with through out my life. I my awesome best friends name Jesus Christ I exalt You. Amen

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

Fills Me Up With

Oh Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) I am exhausted and feel as if this race will never end. It feels as if it has been going on forever and I cannot out run the pain and exhaustion which encompasses every molecule of my life.

Help me to stop trying to out run my pain but rather run the race You have set before me with strength, endurance and gusto.

I have confidence that when I am empty, the Holy Spirit fills me up with high octane super Divine power to be victorious in this race.

I know that this difficulty will not separate us but rather bring us ever closer together.

Thank you for blessing me this day with Your Supreme strength, endurance and joy to continue on with gusto.

I know when I am down, You pick me up, brush me off and cheer me on to victory.

I look forward to the victory crown which my Beloved King shall place upon my head as I cross the finish line at the Gates of Heaven.

I thank you in the name of my most glorious King in which I am honored to run the race He has set before me, Jesus Christ. Amen

DIVINE STRENGTH

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

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

When Trouble Comes

 The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Those of us that have walked with Christ for a while know full well the difficulty in trusting in Him. There are times it seems as if there is nothing but trouble a woe in our lives. It seems as if the world is crushing down on us and we are going to explode. We cry out unto Jehovah but He is silent. This is the most difficult time to trust in Him. Even those of us that have walked the trail for a long time have at times difficulty trusting in Him during crushing crises.

JEHOVAHS CARE

That is okay though.

As long as we call out unto Him, trusting He will answer (and He always does).

For me I have experienced Jehovah delivering me from the tsunami of pain (mental, physical and spiritual) as well as being blessed with His presence during the tornadoes of life, when my life is being ripped apart by unemployment, destruction of relationships. One thing that is the same in each is His Spirit being with me through it all.

The Holy Spirit encourages, reassures and strengthens me through it all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Elohim Machase Lanu (Psalms 62:8 GOD Our Refuge) for blessing me with Your impenetrable refuge from the fire storms of life that try to burn me to nothing through trials and temptations that come my way.                                                                                                               Thank you that You are my impenetrable refuge when the tsunamis of trouble and worry come crashing down upon me with little to no warning.                                                                            I praise You in the name of He who calmed the seas of trouble in His disciples lives Jesus Christ. 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

I Will Not Doubt

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

trust in God

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails;
I will believe the Hand which never fails
From seeming evil worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered;
I trust in You. I will not doubt, though all my prayers return
Unanswered from the still, white realm above;
I will believe it is an all-wise love
Which has refused these things for which I yearn.
And though at times I cannot keep from grieving,
Yet the pure ardor of my fixed believing
Undimmed shall burn.

I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain,
And troubles swarm like bees about a hive;
I will believe the heights for which I strive
Are only reached by anguish and by pain.
And though I groan and writhe beneath my crosses,
I yet shall see through my severest losses
The greater gain.

I will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith,
Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale;
So strong its courage that it will not quail
To breast the mighty unknown sea of death.
Oh, may I cry, though body parts with spirit,

I do not doubt, so listening worlds may hear it,
With my last breath.

Amen 

No matter if everyone else deserts You, Jesus is the steady rock that You can always depend upon Joseph a son of Jehovah

Could These Be

BURN LIKE THE SUN

Could these be the signs: When it says in the book of Revelation that we can not see the sun, could this be a reference to the fact that in many cities you can not see the sun because of pollution?

When it says stars will fall from the sky, could that be in reference to satellites falling from the sky?

When it talks about starvation, isn’t there more starvation occurring now then any other time in history?

When it talks about fish disappearing in the oceans, do we not have massive depletion of fish now? In deed who would have thought of sharks as endangered?

When it talks about a certain number of animal species disappearing how many animals are on the endangered list? Who would have thought of the polar bear being on a threatened list?

When it talks about men being lovers of men, do we not have more self centeredness now than at any other time in history (where people only care about themselves)? Is homosexuality not emerging as normal and accepted, even though it is filth that destroys body, soul and spirit (i.e. how come sexual diseases are more rampant in the homosexual community than any other? Why do so many homosexuals need psychiatric counseling because of depression and anger management?)

When it talks about fire coming from the sky and consuming man and beast alike, could they be talking about the super volcanoes?

When it talks about land becoming desert, could it be talking about deforestation?

When it talks about having the number on their hands and head, could they be talking about one world currency with chips implanted in the body like is some northern European nations today? Is that not happening now where countries are talking about having standard for world currency?

When they talk about how people beg to die but cannot not, could they be talking about terminally ill people or old people left in seniors homes alone and unloved that want to die, but doctors keep them alive, maybe to make money off them with their drugs?

Are they not developing micro chips that are very tiny and can easily be inserted into our bodies?

So, what do you think?

Do you believe we are in the end times?

The time is near, which side of the rapture are you going to be on? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35) – The LORD Is There that even though the clock is quickly ticking towards the final battle I know that You are right here with me, reassuring me that Your hand is guiding me to the rapture so as to evade the terrible punishment that is coming fast to those that live in this wicked worlds system. I pray for the opportunity to guide as many as possible in this system to Your Divine system which leads to eternal life in Heaven instead of Hell. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of my mighty conquering, victorious King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Good That Goes with Bad.

 The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will put their trust in You. For You, O Lord, have never left alone those who look for You. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is always good that goes with bad.

Look at the virus that is snaking around the world right now. Yes it is causing a lot of sickness and death. But, it is also contributing to a lot of good.

Look at how many families are spending time together like they did forty years ago.

Look at how folks are looking out for each other in their communities.

Look at how folks are coming together in creative ways in their church to keep together.

Look at how many folks are having time to read their Bibles, for some, maybe the first time in their life.

Look at how many folks are taking walks on nature trails which is good for their mental, physical and spiritual health.

And, most important of all is look at how many folks are spending quality time with Jehovah, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

It is in the difficult times we come the closest to Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for walking with me through these difficult times.                                                                                                                            May you use me to encourage others and help others under Your guidence as You have helped and encouraged me.                                                                                                                                                I apologize that it took at catastrophe like this for me to come and spend time with You.                             I thank you in the name of He who always fulfills His promise to never leave me nor desert me, Jesus Christ. Amen         

    JEHOVAHS CARE                                                                                                                                                                The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

I Have Seen It.

I have seen it, seen the demons dragging away the dammed.

One evening while watching a segment about the Hong Kong riots on TV, the police were dragging away a young woman protester. The look in her eyes was one of pure terror. She knew, being a woman, what to expect yet there was no escape for her poor dammed soul. This is not to cast the police as demons but rather a metaphor for what will happen upon the day of judgment to the wicked.

So too will it be on the day of judgment. The look of helpless terror in the dammed eyes. There will be no escaping the clutches of the angels that are casting them into a place of eternal agony, torment and hopelessness. Woe be unto them.

FURNACE OF HELL

The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night Revelation 14:11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

That image of the young woman haunted me for a few days and I wept over her. If we weep for those that are unknown to us how much more studious must we be to do everything in our power to prevent those we love from being cast into this horrid place of eternal damnation.

To say those we know around us are going to Hell without doing anything to prevent it is perhaps the worst sin a Christian can commit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What must you do to prevent such a dastardly calamity you ask?

To begin with, live the Christian life with joy that come with communion with Christ, Christian compassion, strong Christian morals and quiet peace that can only be attained with the presence of the Holy Spirit.

NOT SEGREGATED

Then, when the curious ask what blesses us with such admirable disposition, we can gladly share our own testimony of our walk with Christ.

A Christian should be a walking, talking testimonial beam of Heavenly light of Christ that is sweet and appealing to those stumbling about in the darkness on their way to Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

PRAYER: Oh my loving Jehovah Hashopet (Judges 11:2 The LORD the Judge) seeing the terror and knowing the eternal horror that awaits the dammed please bless me with every opportunity and every skill to guide the lost from the trail of the dammed and onto the road to Heaven. I humbly request this in the name of He whose heart shall be pierced like a hot knife going through it as He condemns the dammed Jesus Christ. Amen

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