You are Quick To

the-lord-is-my-strength

“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would” (Gal. 5:17). The Holy Bible, New International Version

Here is where the most brutal battle is fought.

No it is not some famous place like Dunkirk, Vimy Ridge or Nanjing.

It is the no holds barred fight between Spirit and flesh.

Flesh can be considered lust and self serving.

Spirit is of course the Holy Spirit.

The battle occurs every day. Sometimes it is little battles, sometimes it is horrible battles. Think of an alcoholic recovering from his hellish addiction.

The flesh battles the Spirit. And says: “Come on, you have recovered, one drink won’t hurt.

” Or “remember all the fun we had on those drunken parties?”

The Spirit says “Remember all the hangovers and depression, shame experienced when you sobered up?”

How about gossiping? Yeah let’s gossip about______ (fill in the blank).

Let’s hop in the sack with ___.

The list goes on and on.

Let’s cheat on a test at school (where the laugh is on you because you are only cheating yourself).

The flesh says “Let’s serve ourselves, no matter who we hurt.”

The Spirit says “Live by Gods Laws. Do to other people what you would like them to do to you. Do not do to other people what you do not want them to do to you.

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Romans 13:9 The Holy Bible, New International Version

It is hard and many times we fail.

The wonderful thing is when we sincerely apologize to Jesus for our failures and try not to do them again. When we get the help needed by counseling and taking it to God in prayer we are not only forgiven, we grow stronger in our love and respect for the big three:

God our kind gracious and loving Father, Jesus Christ our Savior King and best friend (just think of that, you have the most powerful king as your best friend if you want Him to be) and the Holy Spirit our mentor, healer and comforter.

“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (John 5:4). The Holy Bible, New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Selichot (God Of Forgiveness) that when we mess up and fess up You are quick to forgive and forget. Thank you for using these circumstances to mature my loving relationship with You. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Ask Them If

 

WISDOM LASTS AND ETERNITYHe who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13:24, New International Version

Now we need to understand this.

When children are young, they will push the limits to see what they can get away with.

First they must be warned such behavior is bad and explain why it is bad. Please do not just tell them it is bad or they must do it because you said so. Take the time to explain why they must do this or must not do that. It is even better when you share with them your personal experience so it makes it more real to them.

If they continue to push the envelope they must receive corporal punishment. One good swat will suffice most of the time or taking away a privilege like no mobile phone for a week.

Then sent to a quiet place to contemplate what they have done for about ten minutes. .

After that go sit down beside them. Hug them. Tell them you love them and it really hurt you to do what you had to do. Ask them if they understand. Usually they do. If they do, not try another way to explain it to them.

This is the method my mom used with us kids and I have used with children many times (being a teacher they were not my students but I loved them as if they were my own children). I speak from experience when I say they will love and respect you for it.

After that when they are naughty all I have to do is raise my voice in a firm controlled way to tell them to stop it and they instantly stop. Not out of fear, but rather out of love.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Please Jehovah Abba (God my Father) bless me to emulate You in the same manner in which You wisely teach Your children. I deeply desire them to be a blessing upon this earth not a curse. I humbly request this in the name of my big brother 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

They are Easy Prey

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

 And he who turns away from evil makes himself a prey. Now the Lord saw it, And it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man And was amazed that there was no one to intercede [on behalf of truth and right]; Therefore His own arm brought salvation to Him, And His own righteousness sustained Him.  Isaiah 59:15-16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it states that Christian babies are easy pray for Satan.

I know this to be true from personal experience. Shortly after the baptism of the Holy Spirit a experience came where I thought I was stronger and smarter that satan and he whipped my butt and shoved my nose in it when he easily defeated me.

When the Lord decided that satan had gloated enough He stepped in and reassured me that when I repent I was forgiven and to remember my lesson. Which, I have to this day.

That is why it is of the utmost importance for us more mature Christians to come along side of the weaker ones and share our testimonies with them so they do not lose heart.

It is just as important that we pray for them as that is one of our most important weapons to defeat our hated foe ( satan and his henchmen).

We who have experience are duty bound to share it with the inexperienced to help prevent them from suffering the same shame and pain as we did. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for teaching me how to conquer satan when he attacks and how to gain forgiveness when I repent whenever I fall. May I be blessed with passing this encouragement and wisdom on to those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am. May I be receptive to those teachers who are more advanced than I to their guidance. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the best Teacher of all 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.

This is the Formula With

This is the formula with Jehovahs call upon our daily life. I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

This is Jehovahs commands: Wait for the Lord(Psalm 27:14).

Be still before Lord and wait patiently for Him(Psalm 37:7).

Maintain love and justice, and wait for my God always(Hosea 12:6).

Theses are the benefits of waiting for the Lord:

Blessed are all who wait for Him! He rises to show me compassion” (Isaiah 30:18).

They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength(Isaiah 40:31).

Surely, this is my God; I trust (waited) in him, and he saved me(Isaiah 25:9).

This is our declaration to Him: Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, I wait for you; your name and renown are the desires of my heart(Isaiah 26:8).

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning(Psalm 130:5, 6).

Oh what an amazing Father in Heaven we have. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) that when I am faithful unto You, You are ten fold more faithful towards me in return. This is the greatest investment of all. I JOSEPHS QUOTES FAITH IN ACTION You in the name of Your most obedient son 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

If We Neglect It

NO DOMINION

 May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation, the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ for this will bring much glory and praise to God. Philippians 1:11 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

We need to continuously work at maintaining a righteous character. If we neglect it the devil will creep in and choke to to death in our spirit. Woe be unto anyone who allows that to happen. This is a daily chore we can only succeed at with the help of the Holy Spirit. Only He knows the devils sneaky deviousness ways and helps protect us from it and to guide us away from those temptations.

It does not matter if you are a baby in Christ or if you are a long time member of Jehovahs family. None are too strong nor intelligent enough to protect ourselves from the deceiver.

“What would really be terrifying to most folks when they look into the mirror in not their face but their character. Perhaps that is why most folks do not like to look in their eyes in the mirror.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 always bless me to be sensitive to Your guidance every moment of every day to protect me from falling for the sneaky wiles of the deceiver and forfeit not only my peace of mind and spirit but also to protect me from forfeited my most cherished gift, that of being a part of the Holy family of Jehovah, Jesus and You. Our relationship is the utmost of importance in my life. I sincerely request this in the name of He who never fell for satans tricks 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

Like Polluting a Fountain

do not allow them to control you

If the godly give in to the wicked, it’s like polluting a fountain or muddying a spring. Proverbs 25:26 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation               

This means that if a righteous man surrenders their principal to the wicked the words of their mouth is like a spring that has been muddied by someone walking through it.

Just as the water is undrinkable so too are the words of the righteous who has surrendered his Godly principals to the wicked.

Anyone who has walked through a forest on a hot day and becomes thirsty can tell you how frustrating it is because some idiot chose to walk through the stream upstream making it undrinkable for everyone else. I sure can.

So too are the words of the compromised righteous mans words disgusting to those around them.

To surrender your morals to the wicked is to pee in the stream of Gods word. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with a strong back bone to not surrender to the wicked and for sending the Holy Spirit to help me in my times of weakness so I do not compromise Your Holy standards for my life. I praise You in the name of He who is the most righteous Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Sound Judgment and Discipline.

 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us 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 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says sound judgment and discipline.

How are we to receive these daily Heavenly necessities in our lives?

Sound judgment can only be achieved through constant tutorship of the Holy Spirit and obedience unto our Divine Teacher. The more we listen and obey the more He will bless us with Divine wisdom in every aspect of our lives.

Think of it like going to school.

You must learn the instruction from your grade one teacher before you graduate to grade two. Now for those of us that are old enough, reflect how much you have progressed in knowledge since grade one.

So too it is with the Holy Spirits school of Divine life.

We must start out small with baby steps in our early walk and then sometimes slowly and sometimes in leaps and bounds walk towards Heaven in the knowledge and wisdom of Heavenly citizenship. Joseph son of Jehovah.

Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah. The metamorphosis that occurs in us is the amazing abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing this difficult student with Your Divine wisdom, You amazing patience and Your ultimate strength to become the child my Beloved Heavenly Father desires me to be. Thank You for gently nagging me to discipline Your lessons into my daily life. I praise You in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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