I know an elderly lady that for health reasons can no longer eat the foods she once enjoyed. If she eats those foods she gets violently sick. So, it is like a battle between the mind and the body. The body says do not eat this or else you will get violently sick. The mind says up yours. I am going to do what ever I want to do. Then when the body rebels, they blame everybody but themselves. This is a daily routine with her.
As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly. Proverbs 26:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Her son makes nutritious, delicious foods that she should be eating but she steadfastly refuses to eat them. It constantly amazes him.
Doing wrong is fun for a fool, but living wisely brings pleasure to the sensible. Proverbs 10:23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Does that though not sound familiar?
How many times does our Father in Heaven bless us with advice and we reject it because we want something else. Then when we pay the penalty we blame everyone but ourselves. Jehovah is far wiser than us and loves us. So, His advice is for our own good.
“Wise men don’t need advice. Fools won’t take it.” Benjamin Franklin
When it discussed with her friends ( some of who claim to be Christians ) they just laugh at me and encourage her to just go out and do what she wants to. When the son explains that that will make her sick they just laugh at me again and they make jokes about it. Some of these so called friends are health care professionals. They should know better.
Although, I certainly would not consider their advice to be neither wise nor helpful.
“A wise man may look ridiculous in the company of fools.” Thomas Fuller
Please do not chose to walk down the path of stupidity. It is filled with pain and misery.
Prayer: Thank you Poppa for blessing me with the best mentor The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher 2 Timothy 3:16 ) to guide me along the path of life You have chosen for me to take all the way to Heavens Gate. May I never be foolish enough to believe I am smarter than Him and ignore His advice.
I praise You in the name of the wisest of all Rabbis Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the willingness to be obedient unto the best mentors guidance, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
One of the lies satan uses on us to defeat us is bringing up our past failures to condemn us. Because of these he will try to convince us we are not good enough to belong to Jehovahs family.
He is most effective by using those that know our past and like to tear others down. They take special delight in doing this in public to satisfy their wicked, perverted pleasures.
When they try this evil method with me, I do not shrink back in shame but gladly agree with them. Then, I joyfully share how Jesus has washed that filth from me and has made me clean. Oh what a wonderful gift that is and makes my heart dance for joy.
Then, I ask them if they have repented of any wicked sins they have committed. You know, like taking perverted pleasure in trying to cause shame to an innocent victim in public. They are enraged because they are full of pride. And I have just kicked them off of their high horse, with the help of The Holy Spirit. In public and now the shame is on them.
Jesus’ blood has washed away my condemnation and shame. Oh what freedom there is in forgiven sins. Oh what joy there is in His forgiveness. Oh what love there is in He who has smashed my chains of guilt and set me free. Joseph a son of Jehovah
When you surrender and confess yours He will do the same for you.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves Psalm 20:9 ) when I repent of my sins You are quick to forgive me.
Thank you for the opportunities to share this blessing in public.
For sending The Holy Spirit to twist the condemnation of the wicked to a wonderful opportunity to share Your amazing grace with others.
I praise you in Your most graceful name. Amen
May you never waste an opportunity to share Chris amazing grace with others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” James 2:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Being a Christian means having faith and surrendering.
Faith means to trust.
When we surrender our will to Christ then The Holy Spirit slowly transforms us more and more to posses the same character as the one we love, Jesus Christ.
And, what was the character of Jesus Christ?
The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others. Matthew 20: 28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
You cannot be a Christian without serving Christ by serving others. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Now because you are Jesus Christs servant you must not go out and serve where you like. Jesus has a specific place and manner for you to serve.
And, you cannot serve Christ without suffering like Jesus.
The Holy Spirit will guide you to places you would rather not go and to serve in a manner in which you would rather not serve.
He has done it with me for over forty years. Yes there was a lot of suffering. I rejoice in it all because number one, through my service unto the one I love many been brought to Him.
Two, through the suffering it has bonded us as close as if bonded by crazy glue.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2: 10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Through it all, men and women noticed I stuck out like a pimple on a nose.
That is because I emulated Christs character as we spent much time together. My favorite of course our walks and talks in nature.
They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
You emulate what or who you love. Joseph a son of Jehovah
This is the sermon that should be preached with fire and passion in churches today. If it were, then, we would have revivals like the Welsh revival.
Prayer: Oh my wonderful Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) thank you for giving me the honor of being a student under the tutelage of The Holy Spirit who teaches me about the attributes of my cherished Jesus Christ.
Thank you the He does an amazing job in molding me to emulate Him so that I can live as He live.
My heart dance with exuberant joy as I praise You in His wonderful name. Amen
May you shed your fleshly desire and submit to the most amazing craftsman in the universe as He shapes you into a child of Jehovah like Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. Psalms 94:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Oh boy do I know this to be true.
There have been so many times in my walk with Christ when the whole world seemed to be crashing down around me. With rivers of tears flowing down my cheeks I would call upon our Heavenly Poppa and He would calm my fears and softly, lovingly sooth my sorrows. It was like being washed clean after a hard dirty day at work or after a hard sweaty work out. That was what it was like when He washed away my anxiety and or fears.
Then, snuggling up in a nice warm comforter in a cold room. That was what it felt like when His love and comfort enveloped me like that comforter. I would be filled with joy and appreciation for being blessed with such a wonderful, loving Father.
The world outside could be going to Hell in a hand cart and I did not care. I was in the sanctuary of love with my adoring Poppa, safe, secure and loved.
Wow, what an experience that was and is.
Being a live in care giver has been the most stressful thing I have ever done. I could not go on without my loving Poppa being there with wise advice and loving arms to encourage me on.
Oh my precious brothers and sisters, we all experience stress, exhaustion, confusion, worry fear and sadness. When these dark moments encompass your soul, go to the only One that’s love can, will and does chase away the darkness with His amazing love. His name is Jesus.
Because He has walked amongst us, He understands. He loves you more than we can ever imagine.
Go to Him in prayer. Take shelter from the raging burning storms under His gentle loving arms.
When the storms are raging out side, let Jesus come inside to comfort and soothe the weary heart. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Elohe Mauzi (Psalms 43:2 GOD of My Strength ) for blessing me with You super human strength to continue on serving You by caring for a challenging one in need of care. Thank you for Your peace and comfort to encourage me on. With the greatest of praise I extol Thee in the name of He who endured so much hardship for me, Jesus Christ. Amen
May You always be blessed with the presence and assistance of the truest Super Man. Jesus Christ in your time of need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I lay the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected. Exodus 20:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Yes, your sins affect those around you. That is especially true for children. It does not matter if they are your children, nephews nieces, cousins or the children in your neighborhood. When you participate in destructive behavior like excessive drinking or drugs or any other manner of selfishness little eyes are watching you. Your behavior whether good or bad influences the next generation. You will be held accountable in Jesus Christs high court.
Now some destructive habits are too strong for you to control. They are passed down from generation to generation in your family.
So, do the only logical thing available for you. Take it all to Jesus. Lay it at the supreme healers feet. He will heal you.
Now it may happen immediately like my addiction to alcohol. Or, it may take years, like my addiction to nicotine. But, it will happen. Sometimes Christ will guide to to resources and men and or women that will help you. Sometimes, like with me, it is accomplished only by His Power . But, be assured, when you ask in faith, He will set you free.
Always go to the best Doctor for the worst illness, destructive habits. He has 100 % success rate. Joseph a son of Jehovah
For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. 1 Peter 1:18-19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
What a wonderful example that is to those around you.
Do not hide your sins and Jehovahs rescue and forgiveness of them. You will be a great encouragement to others. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah Mephalti (Psalms 18:2 The LORD My Deliverer ) bless me with plenty of opportunities to share with others, the incredible experiences of the countless times You have delivered me. May these shared encounters lead those enduring difficult times to be encouraged to come unto You. I humbly request this in the name of He who delivered us from Hell on the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you always be encouraged to go to the best rescuer of all in times of trouble, Jesus Christ. Amen Joseph a son of Jehovah
