I know You are my loving, caring Father who protects His children from those with wicked intentions.
I know that even though it seems as if they are getting away with it and indeed, even prospering from it, Your righteous hand shall smack them down hard with Your Divine justice.
The wicked cannot scam You, plea bargain with You or con You. I know that Your justice will be done in Your way, in Your time ( but can You hurry it up a bit please).
Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Thank you for Your true justice in the name of the Supreme Judge 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

A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps. A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless Proverbs 14:15-16, New International Version
Do you fall for the bait?
How many times do you see advertisements that promise a new younger you, a promise that if you follow this formula for a “special price” it will guarantee a new you, a more beautiful you, a richer you, a happier you?
How many times do you fall for the bait and part with hard earned cash only to find yourself ripped off?
Do you recklessly spend money on the newest fad in the foolish believe that you “have to have it” only to have it thrown in the closet a few weeks later? Come on now, how many of you older people were actually stupid enough to buy the “pet rock” in the sixties and seventies? Where is your pet now?
“These were people so hungry for love that they were accepting substitutes. There were embracing material things and expecting a sort of hug back. But it never works. You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship. Money is no substitute for tenderness, and power is not a substitute for tenderness. I can tell you as I’m sitting here dying, when you most need it, neither money nor power will give you the feeling you’re looking for, no matter how much of them you have.” Morrie (from Tuesdays with Morrie)
I believe in following a wise Jewish tradition that if you follow will prevent a lot of grief in your life. Before you buy anything or sign any contract always wait and pray for three days. Depend upon and obey Gods decision. It may not be what you want to heard or want to do, but isn’t it prudent to depend upon Gods infinite wisdom than our faulty wisdom? I have seen many people fall for the sign it now or it will be gone tomorrow sucker trap. Later they deeply regret it.
What the word “fear means is respect. Shouldn’t we respect Gods guidance instead of a snake oil salesman?
Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands. Elisabeth Elliot
Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hoshe’ah The Lord Saves ) Psalm 20:9 bless me with Your salvation when circumstances tempt me to lose my temper or to surrender to satans temptation to do foolish things. I earnestly request this in the name of He who conquered all temptations 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. John 3:19-20 Holy Bible Amplified Version.
When I first became a Christian it confused me why certain folks hated me with a passion even though I did nothing to offend them.
After reading this first the Lord blessed me with understanding.
They hate all Christians because we who walk in the Light convict those that enjoy walking in the darkness. They know what they are doing is wrong ( the Holy Spirit convicts them ) yet steadfastly refuse to repent of their wicked ways. They laugh and say that either there is no God or He does not care.
When they encounter us true Christians their conscience is pricked and they do not like it.
Then in their evil perverted minds they conceive every torment they can upon us and laugh at our discomfort. They foolishly believe they are getting away with it.
Time and again it clearly states that Jehovah is a God of justice and He will deliver terrifying justice on His time and in His way.
From my experience those whom the wicked tormented will be witnesses to it. I certainly did not enjoy it, indeed , many times I wanted to cry watching them suffer, but accept that Jehovah cannot allow the wicked to go unpunished.
Those who walk in Christ will be avenged in Gods time in Gods way. Joseph- Anthony: Green
We do not gloat over it but allow it to digest into our heart and mind so that we can share this testimony with other tormentors in the hopes that they will repent.
As well, it is encouraging to those who are being wickedly persecuted. The Lord is on my side, He is among those who help me;
Therefore I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version.
Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for condemning the wicked ones and delivering true justice to the wicked ones that inflict pain and suffering upon the innocent ones. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ . Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
Do not be unequally bound together with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness ? 2 Corinthians 6:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
Can a wolf live together with a deer ?
Of course not.
Why not ?
Because the first chance given the wolf will attack and devour the deer.
Can the antelope live together with the lion ? Of course not.
Why not ?
Because the first chance given the lion will attack and devour the antelope.
Can those who walk in the light of Christ be friends of those who walk in the darkness of Satan ?
Of course not.
Why not ?
Because everything they love we Christians hate and everything we Christians hate everything they love. It is even more important not to be unevenly yoked with unbelievers in marriage. That is a recipe for certain disaster and heart ache.
That does not mean we cannot work with them and be respectful towards them but we are to avoid friendships with them as their destructive manner and disposition will slowly destroy our divine manner and disposition. It will start out slowly without you even noticing it like a small patch of rust on a vehicle. But, just as the rust will slowly destroy the vehicle if not eradicated immediately so too will the uncircumcised of heart destroy our heart towards Christ slowly but surely un-noticed until it is too late for the foolish ones that play with the devils fire.
Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 Holy Bible , Amplified Version
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with Your Divine Heavenly and Your guidance towards those who are walking in the light. Thank you for Your Divine providence in warning me of the destructive wolfs out there that only seek to use and abuse others for their own wicked ends and to drive us away from You. I exalt You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
