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

What is Wisdom?

To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. 1 Corinthians 12:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into practice.     

Where do we receive the best knowledge?     

From the tutorship of the Holy Spirit.     

voice of god                        

Our life here and now will determine where we spend our next life in eternity, and yes, there is an eternal life after this one. Therefore we should live it wisely. Invest your time in Jehovahs Heavenly Kingdom and your place with in it.                                               

Folks invest their money and time for a comfortable retirement while on this earth, how much do they invest in their eternal home?               

No, it will not be a retirement home. Jesus has work for us that will be enjoyable.                     

Live each moment as if the next you were to meet Jesus because you never know when that moment will arrive Joseph a son of Jehovah               

Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die. Anonymous This is the mantra of the fool that dams them into Hell. Please do not be so unwise as to live this destructive manner of life.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit help me live a life that will please my loving Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6. I look forward to the day when we can share a huge hug and I hear Him say to me:”Well done good and faithful servant.” I look forward to spending an eternity with the one I worship above all others. Please bless me with the opportunity to share this wonderful relationship with others so they may join in this royal family. I thank you and humbly ask this in the name of my adoring King, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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

Then, the Lord Strikes.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 God is my shield, saving those whose hearts are true and right. God is an honest judge. He is angry with the wicked every day. Psalm 7:10-11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

In my life as I slowly learned to be more and more receptive and obedient unto the Lords guidance the more and more the Lord has protected me from the Slick Willies and guided me away from disastrous and dangerous places.

Listening and obeying the Lord prevents a lot of trouble in ones life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In my life there have been so many times as if it seems that not only are the wicked getting away with their vile deeds, they are prospering through. They laugh at and mock the righteous.

Then, the Lord strikes. When He strikes He has no mercy.

Then, the high and mighty are either living in the gutter or living in prison. All of their ill gotten treasure stripped from them. Then, they are laughed at and ridiculed by the world around them.

Oh how sudden and merciless are the wicked kicked off of their high horses and into the gutter. Joseph a son of Jehovah

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah El Nekamoth (Psalms 18:47) GOD that Avengeth for Your true justice when You avenge the innocent of this world whether they are of You Holy flock or not. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge 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

The Best Investment.

loving to each other

Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. Mark 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jesus took time out of His busy day to show love to children, should we not imitate Him every day?

How much quality time do you spend with your children?

At meal time (irregardless of whether it is breakfast or dinner) do you sit around the table and talk, cementing your bonds, or do you all sit there with you mugs pasted in front of the idiot box (TV)?

Do you help them with their homework, class projects or go to parent teacher meeting with them?

Do you tuck them into bed and read them bedtime stories them kiss them good night and tell them you love them (that was my personal favorite)?

On the weekend do you do things with them like go to the park or watch a family movie and then talk about it?

You are the potter, they are the mold, what type of vessel are you creating?

Children learn more by watching then listening. What do they see when they see you?

Children learn more by watching then listening. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same goes for teachers.

At the beginning of each semester I would tell my classes: “I am your teacher. I will work hard for you to be the best teacher for you. You will work hard for me because you love me.” Then I proceeded to prove it. At first they thought I was nuts. After about a month, they were my babies and they knew it. They loved their teacher because they saw their teacher loved them (Kinda like Jesus taught me. We love Him because He loved us first.). I believe what I taught them about love will stay with them all of their lives.

“Children will not remember you for the material things you have provided, but for the feeling that you cherished them.” –Richard L. Evans

Children are Gods gift to you, nurture them properly like you would a garden for you are sowing the seeds of the future. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same goes for those who are new children in the family of Jehovah. You are to love them as if they were your own children and dedicate yourself to their well being and maturity in Christ as you would your own children.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with all the marvelous teachers You have sent my way. Thank you for guiding me to emulate the greatest Teacher, Jesus. May I inspire all those You bring to me to become loving obedient children of Yours so as to enrich Your treasure in Heaven (to be surrounded by even more loving children of Yours). I meekly ask of this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are You Willing To

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer

Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?

Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?

In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?

Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?

Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?

When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?

On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.

Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?

Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.

Now, that does not sound stupid does it? 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen

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