The Same Thing as A

A man who makes a vow to the Lord or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do. Numbers 30:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A pledge is the same thing as a contract.

A contract can be verbal as well as written.

It can be between friends, or family as well as an employer. When you make a pledge to do something or not do something you should work your hardest to fulfill that pledge to the letter.

Anything else is a lie and Jehovah detests liars. Jehovah takes your word seriously, so you better as well.

The Lord detests lying lips. Proverbs 12:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A man or woman is only as good as their word. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now if circumstances beyond your control happen and you cannot fulfill the pledge that is forgivable.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ) bless me with the wisdom of when to say yes and when to say no. Please bless me with the fortitude to let my word be law in my life. I deeply implore this of You in the name of He whose word is the supreme law, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Brick Wall Folks.

 For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. Romans 2:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have met too many brick wall folks. When trying to talk with them to convince them to do something or to not do something it is like listening to a brick wall. They refuse to listen. Then, even if you can convince them, they think up all kinds of excuses for not doing it.

How many times are we brick wall children of Jehovah when the Holy Spirit tries to talk with us and we cover our ears and say: “I can’t hear you.” like spoiled little children.

Sad to say but I used to do it quite often. He was and is patient with me however because He knew deep down I have a loving obedient heart and would obey Him.

For those who are stubborn however, woe be unto them. If they refuse to listen the Holy Spirit will walk away and then look out because the result is a living Hell.

Listen and obey the Holy Spirits guidance or pay a terrible price for your arrogance and stubbornness. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh most excellent craftsman of all, Holy Spirit Bore (The LORD Creator Isaiah 40:28) please forgive me for the times when I am a hard lumpy piece of clay in Your creative hands. Thank you for Your perseverance in continually creating into the Divine work of art my Beloved Fathers designed me to be.         I sincerely give thanks for Your masterful hands and apologize for being a hard lumpy in the name of the grandest master of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Leave It in His Hands.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Being independent is satans trick to get us to plunge ourselves into painful failures and distance ourselves from Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah

In my infancy in Jehovahs family it was exceedingly difficult to trust in Jehovah and leave it in His hands. It is inherent in the fleshly family to be fiercely independent, which of course leads to many unnecessary disasters and hard times. It took many years and suffering to finally surrender it all to Him.

Even now, even though I know this is the right thing to do , sometimes it takes great battles to surrender my will to His.

There is great battle, which the weapons of Christ is memorizing Bible verses and intense prayer. These are guaranteed to bring victory to the soul, mind and spirit of every Christian.

When You give your problem unto Jehovah, leave it in His hands. Trust Him that He will do what is right, not what you want.

There is no sense in asking Him for His advice if you insist on not waiting for Him but going out and doing what you think is right. That always leads to disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The other problem with depending upon yourself is that it lulls you into the false sense of security in your own intellect and physical prowess. This causes us to refuse to include Jehovah in our daily living. This only leads to catastrophe.

Self achievement brings a false sense of assurance that somehow we can live a pure life in our own ability. This attitude ultimately leads us to cut ourselves off from the heart of God and, in turn, to deny our true identity in Christ.” David Edwards

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending me The Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) to help guide me along the trail of life You have chosen for me to travel. May it always glorify Your name and help guide others along the path You have chosen for them to travel. I praise You in the name of He who obeyed You all the way to the path that lead to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day along the path He has chosen for you to walk with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have Beaten Me Down.

The Lord is my strength and song. He is the One Who saves me. He is my God and I will praise Him. He is my father’s God and I will honor Him. Exodus 15:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

   My Beloved Father because hard times have come right now and have beaten me down. I have tried all avenues I can think of to no avail so of course I do what should have been done right from the out set I humbly come before You my love with my petition:

Please bless me with wisdom, mine is feeble compared to Your Divine superior wisdom.

Please bless me to send the Holy Spirit to bless me with discernment. He knows best how to teach me so I will understand and blesses me with the strength and fortitude to follow through on His Divine wisdom.

I thank you my Love for blessing me with this circumstance because it teaches me and reinforces in me to always turn to You first, listen obey and trust Your guidance.

Please forgive me for being so arrogant as to foolishly believe this situation can be best resolved by my feeble wisdom and strength. Through this experience my Love it draws us ever closer together which is the best blessing of all.

It is in the best Guidance Councillors name, Jesus Christ. I pray. Amen

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

A Pretty Brave Request.

 Search me, O God, and know my heart;  test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139:23-24 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I do not know about you but I have no desire for Jehovah to test me. That is a pretty brave request. I have gone through testing and it ain’t fun.

As well, no matter how strong of a Christian you think you are, you are still weak.

Come to think about it, that is a great reason to ask to be tested, to find out any area’s of weakness that needs work on and to not become overconfident.

Jehovah already knows our anxious thoughts and knows how to relieve them, usually for me it is by opening my understanding of Bible verses that encourage and strengthen me.

Sometimes we become complacent in our lives and unknowingly are doing things that are offensive unto Jesus.

We need the Holy Spirit to convict us of these ( do not worry, He is a good, kind and gentle teacher. There is no yelling or screaming. However, when we are obstinate, He will use strong manner to convince us to turn from these destructive habits).

Unlike the world, which is travelling down the Highway to Hell, Christ has an individual road for us to travel the we alone are to travel to our Heavenly Home. That is why we need the guidance of the best path finder, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) bless me with the Holy Spirit to always provide help to me to remain on the Back Road to Heaven You have chosen no matter how hot and dusty and bumpy it is. I know the ultimate destination is worth it.             

I honestly request this in the name of He who followed the most difficult road, the one that led to Calvary, for me, 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

Which Son are You?

double beautiful water lilies

 “What do you think? There was a man who had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ And he answered, ‘I will not’; but afterward he regretted it and changed his mind and went. Then the man came to the second son and said the same thing; and he replied, ‘I will, sir’; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of the father?” Matthew 21: 28- 31 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Which Son are You?

Personally I am the first son.

There have been so many times I believed Jehovah to be insane when He sent me on a task. Many times I stomped my foot and flat out refused to obey such a ludicrous suggestion. Upon reflection in quiet times I would slowly submit ( even though I was certain it was going to end disastrously for guess who). To my total shock and amazement the task was gloriously completed and I could not cease proclaiming His awesomeness and me admiration of Him. As my walk with our Beloved Heavenly Father progressed and these tasks became more challenging my attitude evolved from one of : “ Are you nuts; this is certain disaster. “ to : “ Okay my Love, I do not know how You are going to do it and am certainly looking forward to Your unusual way of providing for this child of Your to not only complete the task but to do so in a manner which glorifies You. “

Jehovah does not care if you argue as long as you obey. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have met many who openly profess to be obedient children of God yet refuse to obey His leading. They are the naughty second child.

Which one are you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to prick my conscience into obedience unto You. I love You and always desire to be a loving obedient child of Yours. I humbly thank you in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

At Compound Interest.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 One of the advantages of getting old is seeing the hand of Jehovah in others lives during the course of a few decades.

If then, you act with hostility toward Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times in accordance with your sins.” Leviticus 26:21 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed many of the proud and arrogant laugh as they foolishly believe they can live their lives as they see fit and are cruel and dishonest with their neighbours. Through the course of time their mental, physical and spiritual health deteriorates until they are living a daily life of living hell all alone. They are angry and bitter. The strange thing is that they know if they repent at least they will have mental and spiritual health but because they are arrogant they refuse, even unto death. At the moment of death they are alone and terrorized knowing that they are doomed to be cast into eternal Hell where they belong. There is a deep sense of doom and gloom in the room and you cannot wait to get out of there. It is a very sad and pitiful site to see no matter how bad they were to you.

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the [steadfast] lovingkindness which He swore to your fathers. He will love you and bless you. Deuteronomy 7:12-13 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed those that love Jehovah and are obedient unto Him. They are kind, loving, joyous and generous. They age gracefully and are surrounded with a swarm of others to constantly help them when they need help in their old age. They are enveloped with an aura of peace, love, joy and gentleness. You cannot help but love to be around them and help them. When it is time for them to pass on to the other side they are surrounded by loved ones. There is a peace in the room when they pass on. You cannot help but cry with joy at the honour of being their friend and look forward to being with them in Heaven.

“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your divine guidance to walk in Your Heavenly light. Thank you that the fruit of this light is love, joy and peace and with the numerous opportunities to share this light with others in a cold, cruel dark world. I praise you in the name of the Prince of Light Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Why do we do that?

Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Proverbs 15:22 New International Version

One time I experienced problems with my computer and attempted to repair the problem on my own. Not only did the problem get worse but other problems occurred which made matters worse. Finally the computer was taken in to the shop to be repaired.

Isn’t that the way we are in life?

We are cursed with the “I know, I know” syndrome when we try something on our own without asking for help and end up messing things up real bad and have worse problems than when we started, especially us men. Then, we end up taking it to those who know to get the problem solved.

Why do we do that?

The simple answer is pride, we refuse to humble ourselves.

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Should we not always seek advice before we attempt important thing in our lives?

How many less divorces or bankruptcies do you think there would be if we sought wise counsel with honest God fearing councilors first?

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit my wise Guidance Councilor for all the wonderful council You have so generously blessed me with in my difficult walk with You on the path to Heaven. I humbly apologize for the times in my arrogance, pride and lack of faith I stubbornly refused to be Your obedient student. I exalt You in the name of He whose suffering and sacrifice made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Do You Pout When They Do It?

But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry. He prayed to the Lord, “Isn’t this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity. Now, Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live.” Jonah 4:1-3 New International Version

Johan went to Nineveh to give a warning that if the city refused to repent they would be destroyed. When his arch nemesis repented he felt cheated and angry.

Do you do that?

When someone does you wrong and repents do you feel cheated and angry instead of filled with joy for them?

When you do wrong and Jesus forgives you, you feel glad as does He.

LET ALL REJOICE

As a Christian should we not follow Jesus’ example and feel glad for them?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with a gracious heart to truly celebrate with joy when anyone repents of any offence against me just as I know the angels in Heaven do. I obediently implore You in the name of He who cried “Forgive them Father” from the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Why is it His Fault?

Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.”

Abram agreed to what Sarai said. So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.

When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress.  Then Sarai said to Abram, “You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering. I put my slave in your arms, and now that she knows she is pregnant, she despises me. May the Lord judge between you and me.” Genesis 16:1-5 New International Version

When Sari nagged Abram to have sex with her slave to have a child and when the slave became pregnant she lorded it over Sari. Then Sari blamed Abram.

Why was it his fault?

Was she not the one that did not have faith in Jehovah and decided to take matters into her own hands?  Was it not her that constantly nagged Abram to impregnate the slave even though she was told that the blessed child would come from her womb?

When she paid the consequences she blamed someone else.

How many times do we do that?

We do not have faith in Jehovah or patience with Him and take matters into our own hands. When things go wrong we always find someone else to blame.

KEEP YOUR HEART

The mantra of every narcissist is : “This is not my fault, it is your fault!”  Joseph- Anthony: Green

It could be in looking for a marriage partner, looking for employment or a place to live but we always need to take it to Jehovah in prayer first, wait for His reply second and finally to be obedient to His guidance when He answers.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) grant me the wisdom to always be willing to accept reasonability for my reckless actions and to have the wisdom to take the necessary action needed to rectify my mistake so that there is peace with You, my nieghbour and in my spirit. I meekly request this in the name of He who helped Peter become right with the Master on the seashore Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
