It Isn’t by Accident.

be loving like jesus

If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously.  Romans 12:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation                                                         

We all have the gift of giving. We just need the Holy Spirits discretion in where, who and how much to give. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                           

 As we travel through our days, opportunities will present themselves to us to do good deeds. These are not haphazard. They are pre-ordained gifts from God.

Gifts’ to the man, woman or child on the receiving end of the gift. It may be a word or action you give to them that makes their day.

Perhaps they are having a really bad day and your simple act of kindness and compassion brightens a dark and trying day. It is a gift to you.

Whenever I do a good deed it always makes my heart dance with joy, no matter how simple the act is.

We must offer ourselves to God like a clean, smooth canvas and not worry ourselves about what God may choose to paint on it, but at each moment, feel only the stroke of His brush. Jean Pierre de Caussade
It is a gift to God.

Hopefully the person on the receiving end takes a moment to thank God for the act of kindness.

If they do not know God but know you are a Christian, you act may be the catalyst that nudges them towards God.

Of course we should also praise God both for the opportunity to do good and for the blessings of joy we feel when we perform the act of kindness.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose imagination is stayed on Thee.
Isaiah 26:3 The Holy Bible, The King James Version

Prayer: I gladly offer You Jehovah my life to use to enrich the lives of others I meet today and every day. I thank you when these opportunities present themselves to me as they enrichen my life when I help others. In the name of our best example of giving of oneself Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

This is the Secret

 Let all that I am praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath. Psalm 146:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

This is the secret to having joy in your life, singing praises to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit at every opportunity through out the day.

Try this: thank Him before eating a meal (believe me, you go live in a third world country and you will see how good you have it).

Thank Him for giving you a place to live, I have seen many that live in one room as a family with no indoor heating or cooling.

Thank Him for the water you drink, I have seen many that live off of three liters of water for cooking, cleaning and drinking, try that some time.

Thank Him for living in a secure place, I have lived where it was common in the morning walk to see dead folks laying the street.

Thank Him for the air you breathe. I have lived in places where old folks drop to the ground and choke to death off of the polluted air.

Most importantly, thank Him for blessing you with the greatest blessing of all, a loving relationship with Them and for them caring for you and caring about you. Then, you will find your life filled with joy no matter what your circumstances are.

A grateful heart is a joyful heart. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with Divine exhilarating joy that can only be gained by being in communion with You. It is the most special treasure there could ever be. I praise You in the name of He with whom I experience the greatest joy being with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Me First Puts You Last.

SATANS TRAP

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.                                                                                      You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up James 4:1-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Is it not true, this is what causes so many fights today, the feeling that you are the center of the universe? Because of this, you feel no qualms about stepping all over everybody else because you think you are better than anyone else. You refuse to see anyone else’s point of view. You are rude because again, you think you are the center of the universe. Maybe you are to momma and or granma, but not to the rest of us. Grow up and be a man or woman. Learn to respect others.

How about your relationship with God?

In your communion with Him do you have the gimme, gimme attitude?

Are your prayers centered around yourself? Then you cry baby because God does not give you everything you demand.

So many times I have encountered people who say they don’t believe in God (I say they say they don’t believe in God because I believe we all deep down we all know He exists. Many just refuse to accept Him because He will not give them their every desire like spoiled children and because they are haughty and refuse to submit to anyone). When I ask them why, they reply that it is because He has not answered their prayers. When asked what their prayers are they are always self centered.

Of course God will not answer those prayers (Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Gods help or guidance. That is what He wants us to do.).

My prayer is: Not my will but Thy will be done my God. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do. May my words and actions bring glory and praise to You and may they lead the lost little sheep to You.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now what is friendship with the world?

I believe it is self seeking pleasures, whether it be booze, drugs, sex or commercialism. Again, it’s all about you.

That is the life of a loser. Their life is left with a void that they do not understand why. The reason is because they do not have the heart of a servant of the most regal of kings, Jesus Christ.

The happiest people I have ever met are also the humblest.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary

I love being humble and yes most days I am very joyful (Happiness depends upon physical stimulation, joyfulness depends upon Jehovahs love beating in your heart).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy as I nurture our loving relationship which is the most joyful experience there is. I applaud You in the name of He who brings the light of joy to my heart Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

Here is the Catch

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

 “See, I am sending an angel before you to protect you on your journey and lead you safely to the place I have prepared for you. Pay close attention to him, and obey his instructions. Do not rebel against him, for he is my representative, and he will not forgive your rebellion.  But if you are careful to obey him, following all my instructions, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and I will oppose those who oppose you. Exodus 23:20-22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

It is a good feeling that those who chose to be my enemies make themselves enemies of Jehovah. BUT, here is the catch, we must be obedient unto Him.

I believe the angel referred to in this instance is the Holy Spirit. Yes He is the best guidance councillor there is.

When we rebel against Him, He withdraws His protection and guidance. Woe be to the man or woman that puts themselves in that situation. I speak from a lot of personal experience. It only leads to trouble, agony, confusion and heartache. The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent He is quick to return to us.

We ignore the Holy Spirit at our own peril. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13) – The LORD that Sanctifies me for blessing me with sending me The Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be obedient unto all of Your wise instruction. I know You give this for my own good.                                                                                     He is the most awesome Teacher. He knows how to teach me so that I will understand.                               I remorsefully apologize for the times I am a rebellious student. I know it is not possible but I would love to be perfect so that I would never hurt Your treasured heart.                                                                        I exalt You in the name of the best Teacher ever, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Is a Great Fisherman.

WHEN SATAN ATTACKS

The ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world Revelation 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“Satan never sells his poisons naked — he always gilds them before he vends them.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

This is how addiction begins.

Satan is a great fisherman. He makes deadly lures look like delightful delicacies. Sure it feels good to begins with but once he has you hooked you can squirm all you like but you are his. That is addiction

There is only one way to escape his deadly lure. His name is Jesus.

When you repent of your sins and depend upon the power of Christ, Jesus will smash those chains and set you free.

So if the Son makes you free, you will be free for sure. John 8:36 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

That was the only way I was freed from alcoholism. I was and alcoholic for over forty years. I tried diet, counselling, meditation all to no avail. When I finally surrendered it to Christ the chains were instantly smashed and I have been free of them for ten years now. It was the same experience with smoking.

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Moshiekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16) The LORD my Savior for blessing me with smashing the chains of addiction which satan tricked me into enslaving me.                                      Thank you for Your salvation which lead me away from satans wiles and into Your Holy loving sphere that leads me ever closer to You.                                                                                                                     I exalt You in the name of He who defeated satan on resurrection day Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Believe Jesus Knew

WITNESS FOR ME

As Jesus went with him, he was surrounded by the crowds. A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding,[b] and she could find no cure.  Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped. “Who touched me?”Jesus asked. Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.” But Jesus said,“Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.”When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees in front of him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed.“Daughter,” he said to her,“your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” Luke 8:42-48 The New Living Translation.

I believe Jesus knew who touched her and why.

So, why did He ask who touched Him?

I believe it was to reveal to everyone that it was because of her faith that she was healed. It was to be a good example to those around Him that He has the power to heal and that we must believe in Him to receive this gift.

It took great faith in Jesus that He would not be angry with her for touching Him when she was unclean. When a woman was on her period she was considered unclean and was not to have contact with a man in any way. To admit she touched Him would have brought her great shame and condemnation. She did not care, she threw herself at Jesus with gratitude and trust in His love and compassion.

So too it is to be with us. Now Jesus may or may not heal your physical ailment but He most certainly will heal your mental and spiritual ones. Not only must we have faith in His loving healing touch, even if it brings a lot of mockery and condemnation from society we must also proclaim His healing to the sick world and risk suffering the same mockery and condemnation again. That is okay because Jesus’ love and healing is of far more value than society’s approval. Especially since society’s approval is very fickle while Christ love is sold and never changing. 

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka :(God our healer) for blessing me with Your awesome mental and spiritual healing only You could have healed me from.                                Thank you for the numerous opportunities to share these blessing with others in the hope that they will trust You to heal them as well.                                                                                           I praise You in the name of the best Doctor there is Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are You Ready For ?

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2 New International Version

 How do you behave towards others?

How do you treat your neighbors, friends, family, classmates, co-workers, and people on the bus or anywhere we travel throughout our day?

When we conduct ourselves in a humble, gentle manner our lives will be much less stressful and we find ourselves a lot more happier.

Let’s dissect each of these words and then perhaps and then you may see how to incorporate them into your daily living.

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive

Do you walk around with a chip on your shoulder?

Do you look down on people who are poorer than you, come from a different country and culture?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

Are you ready for what comes around?

Gentle: free from harshness, sternness, or violence

Do you speak cruel spiteful words to others to get your jollies watching them in their hurt feelings?

Be careful, if this behavior leads to some else to commit suicide in Gods eyes you are just as guilty of murder as if you put a bullet in their head.

Are you too stern with your wives, husbands, children or subordinates?

Are you a bully?

Read about those who speak cruel words, the same applies to you.

Patient: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint, not hasty or impetuous ,steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity

Do you have patience waiting in the grocery line, or when dealing with anothers short comings or difficulty in understanding?

 

Do you stand beside a family member, friend, classmate or co-worker when dealing with difficult situations? Do you bear with another when they unintentionally do or say annoying things?

All of the above definitions come from Webster’s dictionary. The comments are my own.

Why not make a list of how you can improve yourselves with this helpful little guide. Then start working on improving yourselves one at a time.

As an added bonus you will find yourselves much less stressed and happier.

Oh and as another added bonus remember this: What goes around comes around. So how you behave towards others will be done back to you.

How do you want people to treat you?

“Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. Treat them gently” (Romans 14:1 The Message Bible).

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 The Holy Bible, The Living Translation

Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8,9 The Holy Bible, The King James Version

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up” (James 4:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation).

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Prayer: Jehovah Hosanna ( God our maker) make my every heart beat with a deep longing desire to always walk righteously in Your divine eyes and be open to expanding my ability to become more Christ like every day. In the name of our loving King Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Are You Willing to Die to Live?

 

CHRISTIAN SCARSI have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.Galatians 2:20 New Living Translation

To gain a fantastic life we must first sacrifice a worthless one. When we become Christians we are to sacrifice the old life for the Christian life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Notice the word SACRIFICE.

This usually, but not always, entails a very painful experience.

It is usually very difficult to give up your old life. Many times it will mean walking away from bad habits and friends, indeed, maybe even family.

During this painful and trying time do not worry; Jesus is right there with you. Call out to Him and He will send His Spirit helper, The Holy Spirit to strengthen you, comfort you and encourage you.

When you come out the other end of your walk through that fiery hell, you will experience joy, peace, contentment and know you are loved like never before. You will be close to our great Emmanuel (God amongst us) and will feel such a close bond with Him the pain experienced in your walk through hell will seem trivial in comparison to the peace, joy and contentment in the loving arms of Jesus.

“The sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Rom. 8:18). New living Translation

As well read Psalms 23 for encouragement.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hossanha (The Lord our Maker) for crucifying my self to be given the priceless gift of life with Christ. In His lovely name we give thanks. 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

As a Christian I

If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today, God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God: God’s blessing inside the city,
God’s blessing in the country;
God’s blessing on your children,
    the crops of your land,
    the young of your livestock,
    the calves of your herds,
    the lambs of your flocks.
God’s blessing on your basket and bread bowl;
God’s blessing in your coming in,
God’s blessing in your going out.                                                                                                  God will defeat your enemies who attack you. They’ll come at you on one road and run away on seven roads.                                                                                                                               God will order a blessing on your barns and workplaces; he’ll bless you in the land that God, your God, is giving you.                                                                                                            God will form you as a people holy to him, just as he promised you, if you keep the commandments of God, your God, and live the way he has shown you.                                All the peoples on Earth will see you living under the Name of God and hold you in respectful awe.                                                                                                                                        God will lavish you with good things: children from your womb, offspring from your animals, and crops from your land, the land that God promised your ancestors that he would give you. God will throw open the doors of his sky vaults and pour rain on your land on schedule and bless the work you take in hand. You will lend to many nations but you yourself won’t have to take out a loan. God will make you the head, not the tail; you’ll always be the top dog, never the bottom dog, as you obediently listen to and diligently keep the commands of God, your God, that I am commanding you today. Don’t swerve an inch to the right or left from the words that I command you today by going off following and worshiping other gods.Deuteronomy 28: 1-14 The Message (MSG)

Normally I keep politics out of my blog but because this is, in my opinion, a very important election in Canada as a Christian I feel it my duty to educate all Christians in this country to the alternative to the main political parties.

Have lived through numerous parties in power I have seen that, in my opinion, they do not represent Christian values.

Therefore in this election I have voted for the Christian Heritage party. Their platform represents what I believe needs to be done in this country to improve our economic, educational, environmental, judicial and security.

If you live in Canada please look them up at: http://www.CHP.ca

Vote wise, vote Christian  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Love Bears a Heavy Burden.

helping-others

 Love is to be sincere and active [the real thing—without guile and hypocrisy]. Romans 12:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a volunteer in a seniors home I see many spouses, both men and women daily come in to care for their loved ones. I see the same thing with adult children come in and care for their elderly parent or parents. It is extremely difficult for them but of no consequence to them. They gladly serve out of love.

“Love bears a heavy burden and does not feel it.”Thomas à Kempis

As well the same can be said for those that care for disabled children or parents at home. It is a heavy burden on them which they gladly bear because of love. Sometimes it costs them a marriage or separation. They lose everything. Many times they serve with no help from the other family members.

I believe that those that love the deepest are those that serve the best during difficult times in anothers life. Joseph- Anthony: Green

For me I am blessed with strength, encouragement, patience, wisdom and peace in the gentle, strong, loving arms of Jehovah while caring for my disabled elderly mother. When the burden feels to heavy I go to Him and He blesses me with unending strength, peace, love, joy and wisdom to carry on.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with a loving, patient, caring heart to encourage, strengthen and comfort those that are enduring trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares just as You have helped me through my numerous ones in my life. I thank You in the name of He who I always try to emulate in helping others Jesus Christ. Amen.

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