Gladly Send the Answer Man.

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. James 1: 5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

When I was a teacher, my children felt comfortable asking me any question that intrigued them. Many times they were astounded that I quite freely informed them that I do not know the answer.

It is funny how many folks are too proud to admit that and try to fake their way through it. They only look stupider and stupider.

Later I would pray and The Holy Spirit would always shed light on the answer. When the answer was given in the next class and the children would ask how I got the answer, I gladly shared with them the not so secret to the answer to all of life’s questions, His name is The Holy Spirit. And, when you respectfully ask Jehovah, He will gladly send the answer man ( well okay, He is not a man but it sounds nice lol ).

“[Christians], at their best, know that often they don’t know. They do not have all the answers. They do not have God in their pocket. We cannot answer every question that any bright boy in the back row might ask. We have only light enough to walk by.” Howard A. Johnson

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light Psalm 27:1 ) that when I am asked a question I do not know the answer to I do the wise thing and respectfully ask You for Your wise insight. Thank you that Your brilliant light of knowledge shines the proper answer for me to reply with. May this be a light to guide the lost unto my Beloved Father in Heaven. I humbly request this in the name of the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Amen

Many you be blessed with the gift of the answer man to answer all of your lifes questions. Joseph a son of Jehovah

And Then What?

This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 1 Timothy 2:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

I have encountered too many Christians that are determined to save the world.

Yeah, and then what?

Well, then they say praise Jesus when someone accepts Christ as their Saviour and then walk away.

That is like asking Jehovah to bless you with a child and when the baby is born the parents walk away.

How are they going to learn to live like Christians if you are not prepared to mentor them?

How are they going to learn to serve their King if you do not teach them?

No, that is not someone elses job, you brought them to Christ, now you are to educate them. This is a huge commitment that is going to take a long time, effort and suffering on your behalf. If you are not prepared to make that commitment then just shut up. You do more damage than any good because the newbies are left hanging out to dry and walk away from Jesus feeling angry and bitter towards both Him and His followers.

Bringing one to Jesus is only half of the equation. You must also teach them about Jesus. You must teach them to conform to His will. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) bless me to always be there for anybody that You bless me with the privledge of bringing them into Your Holy family as You are always there for me.

I humbly request this in the name of He who always walked with His disciples when He journeyed this earth Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be a blessing unto others as Christ has been a blessing unto you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Please Jehovah Jehovah Tsori

O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.” 2 Chronicles 20:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength Psalm 19:14 ) help me.

You know my weaknesses and how to strengthen them.

Where I am wavering please send the Holy Spirits strong hand to hold me up. I do not need the worlds feeble efforts to strengthen me when I have Your supreme power with in me.

Please open my eyes to see the wonderful things You are doing in my life and through it.

When the world points its self righteous fingers at me in condemnation, my precious Jesus, show me Your pierced hands to show me Your loving forgiveness when I repent.

I desire nothing of the emptiness the world considers valuable but rather I prefer the riches of Thy precious love.

Please increase my faith every moment of every day. Always remind me to come unto You for strength and wisdom and perseverance. Your way is the way to victory.

May I always follow the path You have chosen for me to walk, no matter how difficult, no matter if I cannot see where it is leading me in the situation I am in. I know it ultimately leads to victory.

It is in the name of my victorious King Jesus Christ that I humbly present this request unto You. Amen

May you always walk hand in hand with the Holy Spirit all the way to our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Joyful are Those Who.

Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts. Psalm 119:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) bless me with more knowledge of You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for the devotionals you send me in the email and the quiet time we spend together reading them. And then, we spend the most precious time of the day, prayer time where I pour my heart out to you with joy, sorrow, pain and gratitude every morning and evening. I thank you in the name of He who I love to spend time with which makes it the most quality time of my day, 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

If They Did Not Repent.

 The Lord gave this message to Jonah son of Amittai:  “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are.” Jonah 1: 1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Nineveh was not an unknown city to Jonah. They were arch enemies of both the Israelite’s and of Jehovah. The two countries deeply hated each other and were many times at war with each other. They treated each others captives very cruelly. I am sure some of Jonahs family and friends suffered at the Ninevite’s hands.

Now imagine Jehovah commanding a Jew who had family and friends suffer at the hands of the Nazi’s and Jehovah commanding him to go up and tell the Nazi’s if they do not repent they will be destroyed. That is what it was like for Jehovah to command Jonah to go to Nineveh and warn them of the coming destruction if they did not repent.

Okay, now let us make it more personal.

Imagine if Jehovah commanded you to go up and share Jesus with someone who has abused you or cheated you or made you suffer horribly in any other manner, and inform them if they did not repent of their ways they would be condemned to Hell for eternity.

Would you do it?

Although sometimes obeying Jehovahs commands may be like swallowing a turd sideways we, as His children are to be obedient unto Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times Jehovah will command us to do things which are repugnant to us but has eternal consequences for those He is sending us to.

No where do we see the Ninevite’s and Israelite’s becoming best buddies or and other change in the disposition between the two enemies. I believe there will be little change in the disposition between the two belligerents of today either .

Prayer: Please Jesus Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) bless this humble servant of Your to always be obedient unto His masters calling no matter how unpleasant it is. I sincerely request this in Your majestic name. Amen

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

The Source of All Comfort.

 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Those make the best comforters and encouragers are those who have suffered the most and come through it ever closer to Christ.

Jehovah loves you so He does not allow you to suffer for nothing. He uses these experiences to help mature you, to burn off the dross (habits that hinder your development into a strong Christian character) and to add more tool to your work belt of being a encouraging Christian to others.

Jehovah permits us to go through hard times and help us through them so that not only can we help others though our experience but that we guide them to Jesus through that experience. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Lord, please bless me to guide me to help others as You have helped me. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present Hebrews 13:5 ) for walking with me through all of my troubles and lovingly healed me, encouraged me, and strengthened me. Please my Love bless me with opportunities to reciprocate this to others when the storms of life are crashing down around them. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who always took time to help others, 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

A Prayer for Trust

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 2 Corinthians 9:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Oh my caring God please bless me with ample patience to deal with an obstinate one in my care.

Please bless me with abundant wisdom to know how to provide the proper care while not allowing for manipulation, conniving nor deceiving to enslave me. To know when it is best to walk away from the tormentor to maintain my sanity.

Please bless me with a sanctuary away from the abusive one so we can commune together in peace.

Please bless me with plentiful strength to endure the constant nit picking and complaining that is just being used to get attention.

In Jesus’ 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

He Has Given Me

 God did not give me a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given me a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

If Jehovah did not give it to us then who did?

It was satan that gave us a spirit of timidity where we are afraid to speak the truth. He did this to prevent us from from speaking the truth and bringing the lost to Christ. He also did it so that the wicked ones could gain power over the weak and abuse them to greater degrees. This has been done through out history where if the people spoke up in the beginning bad things like the Nazi’s would not have happened.

It was satan that gave us a spirit of cowardice so we would not stand up to bullies. This created terrible situations for entire societies (look again to Nazism). As well, he gave us a spirit of cowardice and fear so we would not step out into the unknown world Jesus is leading us to in service to Him.

Jehovah has, through faith, given us power to conquer evil folks and love to reach out to the unloved. He has blessed us with sound judgment so we will not fall for his schemes and scams. He gave us a spirit of discipline so we can grow in power in His spirit to live Godly lives.

This means living a life of having a well balanced mind that is balanced by the Holy Spirits guidance.

We have calmness by surrendering ourselves to Him and allowing Him to keep us calm in tense situations.

Through the Holy Spirit we gain self control (sometimes He keeps us under control, sometimes He reminds us of when we are losing it and depends upon us to make the effort of maintaining self control). Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for always being with me and helping me live a victorious life through You. I praise You in the name of He who I always try to imitate in every area of my life to bring You glory through my life just as He did, 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

We are Still Stewards

 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. Genesis 2:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Now, even though we are not in the Garden of Eden we are still stewards of Jehovahs creation.

One day early this spring while riding my bicycle down a country road the Lord guided my attention to how filthy the side of the road was and reminded me that as a Christian I am a caretaker of Jehovahs creation. He inspired me to go midweek with some garbage bags and start to clean up all the rubbish on the side of the road. It was incredible the amount that was collected in a short distance. I made a commitment to return one day a week and continue down the road until it was all cleaned up.

You must not defile the land where you live, for I live there myself. I am the Lord, who lives among the people of Israel.” Numbers 35:34 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

After about a month, it rained out on the scheduled clean up day. A couple of days later when riding down the road to get some supplies for our garden the Lord directed my attention to the side of the road. It was spotless. That means someone or group noticed the work done, how it looked good and how bad the uncleaned part looked. They took the initiative and cleaned it up.

Many times we can lead by example in life with out even realizing it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

LEADERSHIP

You yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Titus 2:7 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28) The LORD Creator for blessing me with helpers to restore some of Your creation to the beauty You created to be. I exalt You in the name of He who will restore all of creation to its original beauty upon His victorious return Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Best Peace Treaty

  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

The best peace treaty there can ever be is the one between you and Jehovah.    

The only way to accomplish this is to surrender your will to His. We are to do as He suggests. Jehovah is too honorable to demand, He is respectful and asks. We refuse to obey at our own peril.  When we surrender our all to Him, He will bless us with peace, comfort, security and assurance.               

OBEY GODS WORD                                        

 Going our own way or going with the crowd only condemns you to a life of confusion, depression, worry, anger and fear.             

 “Being at peace with yourself is a direct result of finding peace with God.”  Olin Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (the God of Peace) for blessing me with Your Heavenly Divine peace which no other can compare. I exalt You in the highest in the name of the Prince of Peace 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
