Do You Give Honey or Do You Shoot Arrows?

 

WORDS HEAL IN LOVE A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1, New International Version

Please, always remember this verse. Write it down and keep it with you.

Do you speak words of encouragement when others are enduring difficult times? Or, do you pour hot burning colas of pain on others?

Which words do you use?

Do you comfort them and encourage them or do you criticize them and mock them?

Do you always try to say something positive to people or do you take every opportunity to cruelly mock them?

Remember this as well:” What goes around comes around.”

How you behave with others will be done back to you at sometime.

I personally prefer to uplift and encourage others. In doing so I am following in the footsteps of my beloved Jesus.

God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters. J. H. Jowett

Prayer: Please oh Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) guide my words that they may be healing and soothing to all I encounter today. In the name of the sweetest orator 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

What Will Happen To?

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

 The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us. We were respectful and friendly with them. Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes. This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart.

But the sad thing is that: When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy.

And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conduit to guide them to Him. And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) for the assurance that the wicked will receive their just rewards, if not here while on earth then definitely in eternity in Hell. Please bless them with wisdom to see the errors of their ways and to repent of them. I praise You and humbly request this 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

Shouts in the Street.

THE FIRES OF HELL
She raises her voice in the markets;
She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather];
At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:
“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded 
and undiscerning?
How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,
How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?
“If you will turn 
and pay attention to my rebuke,
Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
“Because I called and you refused [to answer],
I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer];
And you treated all my counsel as nothing
And would not accept my reprimand,
I also will laugh at your disaster;
I will mock when your dread 
and panic come,
When your dread 
and panic come like a storm,
And your disaster comes like a whirlwind,
When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].
“Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer;
They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me,
Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the 
Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel,
And they spurned all my rebuke.
“Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way
And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.
“For the turning away of the naive will kill them,
And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them. (Unfortunately I have seen too much of this even in today’s society, especially amongst the liberals, homosexuals and so called intellectuals).
“But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely 
and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.”  (I have seen this and am living this today. It is a great comfort and instills great peace of the heart). Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with Your indisputable truth. It has enlightened me to a life free from the darkness around me and the gift of walking in Your righteous light all the way to Heaven. I praise You in the name of the light of the world 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.

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

I Will Not be Listening.

 “So when you spread out your hands [in prayer, pleading for My help], I will hide My eyes from you; Yes, even though you offer many prayers, I will not be listening. Your hands are full of blood!” Isaiah 1:15The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When your hands are soaked with the blood of innocent folks do you absurdly believe He will listen to your prayers?

What blood, I have not murdered anyone you may say. Maybe not with a knife or pistol but have you cheated anyone lately? Because of this could it be that you are taking food from their mouth because they now do not have money for groceries?

Have you viciously gossiped about anyone lately? Does this not pierce their hearts like a knife while you wickedly laugh at their discomfort? What if it drove them to suicide? Their blood is on your hands.

Have you ever said a mean cruel word to someone just to intentionally hurt them? Again that is like piercing their hearts with a knife?

Every time you intentionally hurt someone with your words or actions that is like piercing their hearts. That blood is on your hands in the eyes of Jehovah and your prayers are like dung to Him.

How can a God of love bless anyone with a heart of vile hate and greed? Your prayers are in vain Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Roi. ( You are the God who sees ) correct me when I begin to stray from Your holy code of conduct because I never want to depart from our loving relationship. I cherish the times we spend every day in communion. I humbly ask this in the name of He who always walked in accordance to Your sanctified manner of conduct Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Cannot Even Enjoy Them.

 

 As to the riches of his labor, He cannot even enjoy them. Job 20:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In China they call themselves “ House Slaves”. This is because they are so much in debt that most of their money goes to pay for an over priced apartment ( they do not have houses in China and call apartments houses). They are afraid to go on vacation because someone may break in and steal all of their valuables. There is the constant upkeep of the residence.

How much of a difference is there in the rest of the world to this enslavement?

The more material wealth you possess the more of a slave you become. Joseph son of Jehovah.

There have been numerous studies done that prove the more material wealth you have the less happy you are and the more paranoid you become. The less real friendship you have.

Gee does that not sound like something you should be envious of?

Then why are you envious of the martially rich when you can have the riches of Heaven in your grasp?

“Few rich men own their own property. The property owns them .” Robert G. Ingersoll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with an abundant supply of Your Holy love and provisions for my daily life and shall continue to do so throughout my life here. Thank you that You have prepared an amazing eternal home for me. I exalt You in the name of He who shall greet me there Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Bag with Holes in It.

 “Is it time for you yourselves to live in your [expensive] paneled houses while this house [of the Lord] lies in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! You have planted much, but you harvest little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have enough to be intoxicated; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns wages earns them just to put them in a bag with holes in it [because God has withheld His blessing].” Haggai 1:3-6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you have a bag with holes in it ( instead of bag insert wallet )?

Could it be because you are so selfish that you earn a penny and spend a dollar ( on yourself of course)? So when you refuse to share your wealth Jehovah allow the devil to tempt you into getting into dept to satisfy your unquenchable desire for more, more, more. Then you are miserable.

Could it be that you plant a lot of seeds to be friends with others while neglecting the crop of daily interaction with Jehovah so you harvest a little from your relationship with Him?

Could it be that in your quest for recognition form others ( self-centeredness- look at me, look at me) that you never get enough and go to foolish and many times dangerous lengths to get noticed by others instead of directing them to Jehovah? As a consequence you are never satisfied. Instead of nurturing a loving relationship with Jehovah you nurture your own ego and as a result you are cold with little or no love in your life. As a result the temple of Jehovah that resides within you is in ruins.

Prayer: I humbly pray my loving Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) that You daily guide this modest servant of Your to constantly build upon and glorify Your Holy Temple so that it is a beacon to those walking in the cold dark world to You amazing Temple. I sincerely request this in the name of He who shines the most brilliantly of Your holy temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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