I’m Giving it All Away.

Give burden to Jesus

 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?Matthew 6:25-27 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

This is for the worry worts.

You know they type, if there isn’t a crisis in their life, they will make one.

Why do you waste your time, effort and health on such frivolous things?

Not me, I give it all away.

Give it all away to Jesus that is. If you claim to be a Christian that is what you are supposed to do. Give all your troubles to Jehovah. Believe in Him. Believe He will soothe all your frets and provide a solution to you.

After all He took care of an entire nation, feeding them and caring for them, for forty years in the dessert, we are of course talking about the Israelite’s in the Exodus. And, they numbered over two million. If He can do that, what is your problem compared to that.

Worry is an insult to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Pray a sincere prayer and read your Bible.

Sometimes you may have to wait for your solution. How long did Abraham wait for the birth of Isaac. You cannot rush God; He works on His time, not yours.

Another thing, God is all wise. His answer may not be what you want, but is always in your best interest. He knows much more than you.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him Romans 8:28 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation.

So, when you finally receive your answer, don’t sit on your hands, take action. It is a partnership. He will supply the solution to your problem and the tools necessary to resolve the situation. BUT, YOU must take the action needed for resolution. It is teamwork.

And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us.”
2 Corinthians 1:10 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

So, what are you waiting for?

Do it now. Open up your heart and pour all your worry upon Him. He is waiting to hear from you.

You have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling Psalms 116:8 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38 39 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

I have confidence in the only confident thing in this world: That the Holy Spirit is right by my side through it all. Both, the good times and the bad. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Here I am my beloved Jehovah Hossanha (God our maker). Mold me into the vessel You wish me to be, in Your own time and manner. I trust You completely to guide me and know You walk with me in good times and bad. In the name of Him who gave completely to You and for us Jesus Christ we pray. 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

How to Make it Special

goodness-is

 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10, The Holy Bible, New International Version

Do you give to the Lord with a joyous heart, or, do you give niggardly?

Niggardly: giving or sharing as little as possible Webster’s Dictionary

For me, I love to give with a joyous heart. A heart of gratitude to my loving creator for all the wonderful gifts He has so graciously given me. Not just material things like a place to live, but also insights into how truly awesome He is, how ingenious He is, how loving and caring He is. When I meditate on these things my heart cannot but help but give joyously to our wonderful God.

Think of how much you would pay to go to the best university in the world?

That is where you are when you read and digest the great wisdom in the Bible.

Then think of how much you give back to the great I Am?

“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40 The Holy Bible, New International Version

Think of all the wonderful gifts He so hospitably gives us?

Mull over the beautiful sunrise, the wonderful fragrance of flowers, and the sweet serenade of the tiny song birds. While delighting in these special treasures, why not take this time to talk with Him as well.

What better time or place?

These are all amazing gifts He freely shares with us if we take the time to enjoy them. Our reciprocation should therefore be one of joyous returning to the marvelous Immanuel (God who walks amongst us) whether the commitment is financial or elegantly serving in a volunteer capacity.

When we give appreciatively to the magnificent God we are exhibiting our gratitude towards Him the way He intended it to be and the way that brings a smile to His beautiful face. There is joyous celebration with angels singing when you share in this manner.

The Holy Spirit is the secret of the power in my life All I have to do is surrender my life to Him. Kathryn Kuhlman

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with an abundance of both physical and spiritual security (not overabundance but enough to live comfortably). Thank you my Beloved for blessing me with numerous opportunities to share this wealth with those who are in need and are appreciative of the gifts given to them through Your grace. I praise You in the name of He who is Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The best guest.

JESUS MY BEST FRIEND

 Jesus is a knocking, are you a answering? Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. Revelations 3:19-21 The Holy Bible, New International Version

In many cultures they only invite an honored guest to share a meal.

Can you think of anyone more honored than Jesus?

Even better, He brings the food.

And what is so special about the food Jesus brings you may ask?

Yes of course you may, and here’s the answer: the food Jesus brings is the sweetest delicacies there is.

It is a loving relationship with Him. No matter what you have done or said, the greatest lover wants to share a delightful, succulent meal with you.

He never kicks the door open. He will knock, but you must open the door.

Later that day, Jesus ate at Levi’s house. There were many tax collectors and other bad people eating there with Jesus and his followers. There were many of these people that
followed Jesus. The teachers of the law (they were Pharisees) saw Jesus eating with these tax collectors and other bad people. They asked Jesus’ followers, “Why does he (Jesus) eat with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus heard this, and he said to them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor. It is the sick people that need a doctor. I did not come to invite good people. I came to invite sinners.”
Mark 2:15-17 (The Holy Bible, English Revised Version)

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me with the privilege and honor of having You in my heart and in my life. Ours is the sweetest and most treasured friendship there could ever be. I thank You in Your loving name. Amen

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

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

He is Waiting

heavenly love

 But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.” (Luke 15:20 The Holy Bible,New King James Version)

No matter if you are an addict, a materialist, a ladder climber an adulterer or whatever it does not matter. When you turn your heart to God, He will come a running to you faster than an Olympic sprinter. He will embrace you with His precious love.

It does not matter what you have done in your life. When you turn to Him and ask for forgiveness and accept Jesus into your heart He will love you as only He can. There is nothing in this world as satisfying and fulfilling as His sweet love.

…neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:39 The Holy Bible, New International Version

When you give your life to Christ all your filth, no matter how bad, will be washed away like a gentle rain softly washes the dust from a flowers pedals.

It is then you will for the first time in your life truly feel alive with a wonderful blessing of Gods supreme love living in your heart.

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions, it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5 The Holy Bible,New International Version

Prayer: Thank you EL RACHUM (Merciful God) that You forgive us, Your weak children, when we repent of our filth. Thank you for washing it all away and for having amnesia of our forgiven trespasses. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made it all possible 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

Put them into Practice.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

“Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24 The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Reading the Bible and then not applying its principals is like reading an instruction manual and then trying to build your project on your own without listening to the guidance provided in the manual.

Sounds pretty dumb huh?

But, on the other hand, incorporating the sacred knowledge in the hidden truths of the Bible will enable us to walk closer to God. It will be a life filled with good morals and a foundation of truth which to cement into our hearts.

“Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” (Proverbs 2:2-5 The Holy Bible, English Standard Version)

This will hold us in good stead when the violent crushing storms of life come crashing down around us (and the storms of life always come until our dying day)

James 1:22 says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says” (The Holy Bible, New International Version).

After reading the Bible we need to request God to open our eyes in how to apply what we have learned into our daily lives.

” Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.” James 4:17 (The Holy Bible, New Living Translation).

“Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105 The Holy Bible, Good News Bible).

Guard my words as your most precious possession. Write them down and also keep them deep within your heart.” (Proverbs 7:2 The Holy Bible,The Living Bible)

We are to obey what the Holy Spirit teaches or we are wasting His time by being make believe Christians. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We are not to become Holy Rollers or Bible thumpers.

You know the type. They shove the Bible in your face and pound on it condemning you and demanding you follow THEIR version of the passages. All the while, they go about living as they please. Can you say the word hypocrite or bully?

Please don’t condemn yourselves with this destructive behavior. Not only will you drive others away from Jesus, but you will be found guilty of that heinous crime on judgment day. They are puffed up like a balloon.

Instead use the observations gained in a positive manner to lovingly enlighten those around you.

“Knowledge puffs up but love builds up”. 1 Corinthians 8:1(The Holy Bible, New International Version).

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with enlightening me to Your light while refraining me from overindulging in knowledge while lacking in love. Thank you that Your guard me words so as to prevent me from suffering from foot in mouth disease. I extol You in the name of the supreme expert in these manners Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The deep breath.

HOLY SPIRITS POWER

 Make every effort to add to your faith … self-control … 2 Peter 1:5-6 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

How do you Keep self control?

Most times when I feel a situation getting out of control I just step back and take a few deep breaths.

It is important to keep self control, ESPECIALLY, when teaching.

Sometimes as frustrating as it is people just do not see the obvious, through no fault of their own. Then it is time to just drop it and pray they will come to understand what you are saying. Usually the students get it with in a few weeks of contemplating it.

Sometimes however, when the frustration is overwhelming and they are being a pain in the butt and being antagonist I slam my fist into a wall.(EDITORS NOTE: I do not do this any more. Now I merely inform them if they want to learn they are welcome in my class. If they do not want to learn, there is the door, do not slam it on the way out. Some leave, which makes the class better, the ones that stay straighten right up)

It is not in anger, it is releasing the frustration. It gets their attention and they back away. It is not that they do not understand, it is that they do not WANT to understand. Then just walk away.

If they are stubborn and refuse to see it any way but their way I just call it like it is:” You are stupid and stubborn. I will not speak to you until you apologize and are willing to maturely discuss this.” Don’t talk with them for a couple of days. They usually come around. Stupidness and stubbornness goes together like smoking and cancer. Trying to reason with a stubborn soul is like talking to a wall. I do not waste my time talking to walls.

Sometimes they are just too self centered and then it is best to avoid them altogether because they will do nothing but bring you anger, pain and frustration.

My motto is “Avoid aggressive, self centered people. They will only pollute your heart with anger and sadness.” Joseph a son of Jehovah                                              It has held me in good steed.

Now if it is an addiction get counseling.

Find out why you have that addiction and remove it from you. If you are a drug addict or alcoholic that will mean giving up your friends. They will only continue to pull you back down into that cesspool again. Sometimes the addiction is too strong for you to conquer and that is the time to completely surrender it to Jesus. I did and He instantly defeated my addiction and I have not returned in over ten years. Now, He may or may not instantly relieve you like He did me.

Editors note: since writing this article I have been taught by the Holy Spirit to pray when feeling like losing control. He either calms me down or encourages me to immediately remove myself from the situation which is causing me to lose my self control.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) – Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with the strength, sensitivity to know when I am being baited and the wisdom to either leave the situation or the wisdom to use the right words to defend myself and defeat the wicked foe. I exalt You in the name of He whose words both healed and cut like a knife Jesus Christ. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
