They Do So.

praying in chinese church

 As you help us by your prayers. 2 Corinthians 1:11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Some folks mistakenly think that praying for others does not do any good.

They do so. I can recall numerous times when my prayer for others was answered in miraculous ways (and yes, they were miracles).

You need not look far to see folks that need a prayer. Ask them if you can pray for them and what their prayer request is. Then write it down. Keep in touch at least once a week. Let them know you are continuing to pray for them and see if there is anything else you can do for them (Jehovah will usually provide you with resources to help them and even if He does not the request often encourages them as much as the prayer).

Praying for others every day is an important intricate part of every Christians prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Shammah ( The Lord is Present) Hebrews 13:5 always be present during my intersession for other saints and guide me to those who need me to be their prayer warrior. I humbly request this in the name of He who taught me how to pray for others 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

God Blesses Those Who

GREED

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12 The Holy Bible New Living Translation  

I have seen too many egotistic folks or good hearted folks try to leave a legacy because they want to be remembered when they go over to the other side which is abused and forgotten in a few years. All the while they neglect their eternal inheritance which will be either very comfortable or extremely uncomfortable.

I choose the eternal inheritance of Christs kingdom over my ego every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I work to impress Jehovah, not man. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have you ever heard of the old saying:”He would be rolling in his grave if he ever saw ___ (fill in the blank). I have seen many sacrifice their live and their health so that when they die they will leave a good inheritance for their children. When they die their children could care less and end up blowing their inheritance foolishly. Their parents would be rolling in their graves if they saw it.

Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers, our homes to foreigners. Lamentations 5:2 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I have seen many buildings that in their time were extravagant luxurious statements to the community about the owners wealth that are now run down buildings used by drug addicts and for wild drunken orgies parties. Boy would they be spinning in their graves if they could see that.

On the other hand when we work for King Jesus, He will place a beautiful crown of glory on our heads when when enter Heavens Gate.

Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. Colossians 3:24 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with an amazing inheritance in Heaven with the best inheritance of all,spending eternity with You, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and fellow members of Your Holy Family. I praise You in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen  

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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Choose Not to Choose

complete deditacation

 

P. T. Forsythe said, “The purpose of life is not to find your freedom. The purpose of life is to find your Master.”

Jesus is the best master

“He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3 New International Version

I choose not to choose my own path, but to follow the Holy Spirits guidance. Yes we should take it to God in prayer and honest Bible study before making a career choice.

This should be our Christian motto: “I choose not to choose.”

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous. It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others; it is full of mercy and good deeds. It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere” James 3:17 The Holy Bible King James Version

Take it to Jehovah for all of our life’s decisions. Whether it be a school to attend, a course to take a life mate or an investment.

“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass” (Psalms. 37:5).The Holy Bible King James Version

Whatever, I believe in doing as the Jews do. Before making any decisions always take it to Jehovah in prayer for three days. See what the results may be. You may not like them in the short run. But, over time it may be revealed to you just how horrible a mistake you could have made if you went with what you thought was right .

“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” (Psalm 25:9 The Holy Bible New International Version)

Independence is opening the door to allow satan into your life. We all know of course he is the master of destruction. Only a fool believes they are independent. They are easy prey for satan.

“All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own” (Isaiah 53:6a The Holy Bible New Living Translation).

We therefore, have two choices in life: 1) Choose to allow the loving Father to guide our choices or

2) Let the destroyer and torturer (satan) make the choice by tricking us into believing it is our own choice.

“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death” Proverbs 14:12 (The Holy Bible New International Version).

I choose to let Jehovah choose, it is the smartest choice I have ever made.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit El Deah (God of knowledge) to guide me through out the challenging discourse of life.              May I always listen , understand and obey His wise guidance.                                      I exalt You and humbly request this in the name of He who is the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Fantastic Free Advice

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 

 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8 New International Version)

Let this always be our first move.

Before you make any decisions in life may I offer you some advice from an experienced old man?

I have heard that the Jews have a custom. Before making any decision they pray for three days first.

Let’s expand on that shall we?

Let’s pray and read the Bible for three days first.

If someone is trying the pressure tactics on you, whether it be to buy something, sign a contract or go somewhere or do something no, don’t walk away, RUN away. It is a trap!!! They are offering you sugar but really it is rubbish. When you stand your ground and REFUSE to surrender to their scams they will walk away looking for another stupid sucker.

When you take the time to read the Bible and pray it is saying to God: Okay big daddy, I know You are the smartest kid on the block. I know You love me and have promised to take care of me, so I will wait for Your divine guidance and trust Your providence.” You may not like His conclusion in the short run, but in the long run He will never let you down.

I was once offered what I thought was a jewel of a contract. The benefits alone were very generous, as was the pay. I informed them I had to wait three days and pray. While reading the Bible the reoccurring theme came up about laying snares to catch the innocent. It broke my heart, but I turned the contract down. Another teacher took the job. For three months he was always bragging about how good it was. We were green with envy. Then they sprang their trap. He was treated worse than you would a dog. He was given twice the classes they told him, had many extra duties dumped on him and had to come a running and teach class at his masters every beck and call (for no extra pay). Then he was the laughing stock of the teaching community. Now I danced with exalted joy for listening to the wise advice given by the best guidance councilor (the Holy Spirit).

Do you understand now children?

We have limited view of things. God has the WHOLE view of them.

Where are you going to go for advice? So let your first step ALWAYS be:

1) Wait. He who rushes in is a fool in a hurry for a disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

2) Pray: Think of praying as sharing a problem with your most trusted friend. Don’t be afraid. God loves you and wants you to pour out your heart to Him like a beautiful offering. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Psalms 16:7 3)

Meditate.

Now meditating does not mean sitting like a pretzel and contemplating your belly button lint. What it does mean is to read the word of God and to dink it in. Please do not try to gulp it down like a cheap beer. Rather take your time and sip it down like fine wine. Many times a verse will jump out at you. Write it down. Think about what it is saying. Pray for God to open your eyes to the awesome wisdom He is revealing to you.

Finally, with complete faith in God, take action. No worries, no regrets, just complete and total faith in our Holy God and His providence for us.

In the LORD I take refuge. Psalms 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullnessJohn 10:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I would like to close by saying: good luck.” But that would be stupid. It’s not luck, it’s Gods gift to you. Take it from an old fart. It really works. I am living proof.

Faith without action is no faith at all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with this recipe to avoid the schemes and scams of satans minions and to follow the true path of life that can only be given by He who is the God of truth. I praise You in the name of He who set the example of living a life of truth Jesus Christ. 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

You Want to See Some

Christ, WILL LEAD

Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. ” Psalm 119:18 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

You want to see some amazing things?

When you read the Bible God can reveal some pretty amazing things He has done.

And, you know what?

When you give your life to Him and trust Him He will do incredible things for you as well. It is team work though.

First you have to believe Him and trust Him.

Second you must read His instruction manual for your life. When He reveals something to you, write it down. Later after prayer, contemplate the special secrets He has shown you. I say secrets because He will only share them with men and women who trust Him.

Third again in trust you must trust Him and obey what He has advised you to do. I say advised because God NEVER tells you to do anything. He respects your free will in your life.

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. ” Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Try reading the Bible every morning for a month and writing down the thoughts that come to you and take action on them. See how it affects your day to day decisions.

We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 2 Corinthians 2:12 The New International Version

Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. Proverbs 9:9 New International Version

Finally, remember your manners. Say thank you to our loving gracious God for all the wonderful gifts He has given us

I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak His praises” (Psalm 34:1) The Holy Bible, Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for blessing me with Your amazing wisdom in such a manner that a simple child like I can understand it because my heart, mind and body is devoted to You. I praise You in the name of He who spoke confusing truth to those who were willingly ignorant 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.

Are You Ready for Your

 

BURN LIKE THE SUN

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.  For you will be treated as you treat others.The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation 

Yes it is your duty to point out others weaknesses and faults but not the right to be judge and jury. You are to help them in their weakness and ignorance with love and compassion not hard heartedness . 

Do you believe you have the right to be judge and jury over others?

If you hold grudges or attempt to take revenge, your own failure is certain. I know, I used to take great pleasure in tormenting anyone who crossed me. But in the end it always boomeranged on me. 

Do you have a self appointed critic attitude?

Do you want to get back on me with a vengeance?

Soon you will be angry with everyone and be very lonely and bitter. Holding grudges is like swallowing acid to punish others. Ir will soon slowly, painfully destroy you.

Are you self righteous?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

If you are proud and find pleasure when others fail there will come a time when YOU fail and everyone will laugh at you. . You will be humbled.

Do you believe you are self sufficient taking credit for what God has given you?

If you think you are secure in your possessions and abilities, your situation is sure to change.

At one time in my life I had a good job, lots of money and lived the good life. Without warning the factory closed, my money depleted so bad I had to walk knee deep in snow to collect pop bottles and beer bottles to get enough money to buy a loaf of bread and jar of honey. That is what I lived off of for a week. Thankfully that situation only lasted for a few months I could not pay the hydro so being cut off there was no heat in the house. It was warmer outside than in that house. It was the lowest point of my life and still is branded in my mind.

So do not be egotistic and think you are so high and mighty, that you are secure in your riches. You WILL be brought down in the blink of an eye.

Prayer: Jehovah our gracious God. Thank you for the numerous blessing You have so freely blessed us with.                                      Please guard my heart that it does not become arrogant and take credit for the blessing You gracefully give us.                                   Please bless me not to be judge and jury but rather someone who comes along side the ignorant and help them eliminate their wrong manner of behavior.                                                                   In the name of the One who never judged the adulteress woman Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

The manner in which you judge others, Jesus shall judge you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace.

You Won’t Understand

TAKING IT TO OTHERS

Often people say to me “You just won’t understand.”
“You’re way too old,” or “Way too young,” or “YOU are NOT a man.”
I don’t know why some people feel they suffer unique pain.
As if they are the only ones who’ve lost or ceased to gain.
I don’t know why they hide their pain and clutch it ever tighter.
It seems to me that all should know – a burden shared gets lighter.
Why some folks even deign to think the pain that’s in their heart,
Is all their own, to keep and hoard, they set themselves apart. They keep their eyes from meeting mine lest I should see their hurt.
And even if we stop and speak their words are often curt.
The Bible says: ‘Two’ can withstand what overcomes just ‘one’.
And also that – a ‘Cord of Three’ can scarcely be undone.

Besides, I know the ways of hurt – my heart’s been crushed before.
Friends have betrayed – I’ve lost at love, Despair’s knocked at my door.
And I Remember – thoughts gone wild – and crying late at night.
Not having strength to care at all – much less the strength to fight.
But, someone special came to me – and when my trials were told. I realized that with their tears – they’d eased my heavy load. And so, I learned – that Pain – like Love – is bearable if shared. I don’t know what I would have done without that friend who cared.

My trials did not vanish fast – in fact the time was long. But sharing gave me breathing space until I could grow strong Enough to laugh again and even start to smile – And though it seemed it could not help – It eased my pain awhile. So, if you think that you can’t share cause I won’t understand. At least just give me half a chance to lend a helping hand. For I know that you’re hurting and I know a place to start. Perhaps if you could realize – your pain burns in my heart.

I know I cannot make your trials and troubles go away. But maybe I can help a bit to get you through today. And maybe by tomorrow you won’t need help anymore. But if you should – Don’t be ashamed – for that’s what friends are for.

And after all is said and done – the trials ceased – you’re whole. Perhaps you’ll know just what to do to help another soul – Who’s being crushed by hurt and pain – be it woman or a man. And you won’t have to hear them say, “You just won’t understand.”

-Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble)  Isiah 49:26  for walking with me through lo my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Please bless me with the opportunity to walk along side someone this day as they are walking through their dark valley just as You walked with me through my many dark and terrible valleys. I humbly request this in the name of He who walked through the valley of the shadow of death for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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