Boy is That Ever True.

 “There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!” Luke 17:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There was a TV show back in the day that when someone did something bad the main character would always say: “ God will get you for that.”

Boy is that ever true.

Many decades have past since I was a gullible teen (and I thank Jehovah He protected me from the scam artists).

Those that tried to tempt me into doing drugs, having premarital sex, getting drunk all the time just to mention a few are complete and total wrecks. Their bodies are shot, their minds are shot. They live in horrible abject poverty. In their time they lived the high life, many admired them and followed them. They are not so cool now.

You can do as you like with your body but you will also pay the price for it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I tremble at what so many school teachers, homosexuals and others are going to get when they preach their lies to impressionable children.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength ) for blessing me with the strength to resist temptation. Yes the apple looks enticing when it is presented but it is really a deadly poison which destroys, mind, body and spirit when indulged in. I praise You in the name of He who resisted the devil when He was at His weakest, Jesus Christ. AMEN

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. 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

If They Did Not Repent.

 The Lord gave this message to Jonah son of Amittai:  “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are.” Jonah 1: 1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Nineveh was not an unknown city to Jonah. They were arch enemies of both the Israelite’s and of Jehovah. The two countries deeply hated each other and were many times at war with each other. They treated each others captives very cruelly. I am sure some of Jonahs family and friends suffered at the Ninevite’s hands.

Now imagine Jehovah commanding a Jew who had family and friends suffer at the hands of the Nazi’s and Jehovah commanding him to go up and tell the Nazi’s if they do not repent they will be destroyed. That is what it was like for Jehovah to command Jonah to go to Nineveh and warn them of the coming destruction if they did not repent.

Okay, now let us make it more personal.

Imagine if Jehovah commanded you to go up and share Jesus with someone who has abused you or cheated you or made you suffer horribly in any other manner, and inform them if they did not repent of their ways they would be condemned to Hell for eternity.

Would you do it?

Although sometimes obeying Jehovahs commands may be like swallowing a turd sideways we, as His children are to be obedient unto Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times Jehovah will command us to do things which are repugnant to us but has eternal consequences for those He is sending us to.

No where do we see the Ninevite’s and Israelite’s becoming best buddies or and other change in the disposition between the two enemies. I believe there will be little change in the disposition between the two belligerents of today either .

Prayer: Please Jesus Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) bless this humble servant of Your to always be obedient unto His masters calling no matter how unpleasant it is. I sincerely request this in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Thank You.

 Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Oh my Love, thank you that no matter how strong the storms lash at me whenever I recollect all the blessings You have generously bestowed upon me, my heart cannot but dance with joy. With each stanza of thanks Your bright light of love comes ever more powerful and evaporates the most stubborn of darkness in my heart.

And, of course, there is the greatest gift You bless me with which creates an euphoria in my heart, that is when You bless me with communion with You.

Thank you that whatever the burden is that is heavy upon my shoulders I go into a quiet place to be with You and You bless me with a lightened heart that dances a jig of gratitude for all of Your graciousness You have generously bestowed upon me and this strengthens me to continue on.

I thank you in the name of He who understands what I am going through because He has walked in my shoes, my closest confidant with whom I share all my challenges with because He understand Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What is your problem?

 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The Holy Bible New Living Translation

What is your problem?

Is it fear?

Believe me, I have been there more times than I can count. The majority of times it was for nothing.

Fear is a lack of trust in Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Being mere mortals we will always have moments of fear.

The difference is that those of us who have walked with Christ long enough know enough to conquer that fear by immediately praying unto Jesus and having the confidence He will take care of it for us. That does not mean that we will just sit back on out buts and wait for Him to do all the work.

Faith means that sometimes we sit back and allow Jehovah to work His will through the problem with the belief that He will take care of it. It also means that we are willing to follow His commands, even though, many times we do not see nor understand what He is doing.

At first this was a terrifying experience for me. Now, I just laugh a wait to see just how unusual a way He will resolve the issue (and in my life it is always in unusual ways).

Are you discouraged?

Boy have I traveled down that road with that heavy load on my back.

Again at first it is difficult to have faith that Jehovah will lift us up. Sometimes He allows us to endure through the experience to build our character up.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” — Goethe

Sometimes, He lovingly comforts, encourages and strengthens us to continue on. Jehovah is always there to help us in the best manner for victory over the challenges of life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength) for blessing me with the strength to continue on when I feel as if there is nothing left in me to give. Thank you for Your powerful strength to carry me when I am too exhausted to continue on. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to endure the horrors of the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

In the Stormy Billows

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.  And endurance develops strength of character Romans 5:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

It is in the storms of life we grow the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We grow in dependence upon Jehovah for delivery of our trials and tribulations.

We grow the most in the skills and strength He blesses us with to conquer the storms no matter how much they rage in or lives.

This is why I believe the education system in the west and the momma bears would pamper their children are doing a severe dis-service to their children. By sheltering them through the hard times they nurture spinless, entitled momma boys and girls who are unprepared for the world when they leave the nest. This is the major reason there is so much cry babying in society today in the west. The young feel entitled and expect the government to pamper them like mommy and their teachers did.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” Goethe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for blessing me with Your saving help whenever the storms are too great for me to conquer. Thank you for helping me to defeat the raging storms when You know I need to and can defeat them on my own. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the raging storm for His disciples on that lake Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Once and Forever

Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. Hebrews 7:25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Standard

GODS HELP

We all have them.

Wars, yes they are cruel wars that inflict a lot of pain, torment and destruction in our lives. They are called addictions. Yes, there are the obvious ones like alcoholism, but there are also the ones like having constant negative thoughts.

There are the constant Worry Wort Willies that worry about everything and Negative Nellies that can always find something to complain about.

We know these addictions are wrong.

However, no matter how hard we try to stop doing them, we fall flat on our faces.

The only way to complete and total victory is to completely surrender them to Jesus. Then and only them will there be complete and total victory.

There are some wars that only the Holy Spirit can win. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Our response for this amazing gift is total joy, gratitude and dedication to our Saviour.

I believe that is why Jehovah allows imperfections in us, to teach us what a wonderful, loving, caring and generous Father He is. That creates a loving heart in us towards Him. This is the object of Jehovah, to bless us with the most Heavenly of love affairs.

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with victory over foes that are too strong for me to conquer. Thank you for smashing those cruel chains that enslaved me. I forever sing praises of gratitude unto You in the name of the Victorious King of Kings, 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

I Feel Uncomfortable

We must remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘We are more happy when we give than when we receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Speaking personally, I feel uncomfortable when folks give me things.

On the flip side, I love to give to those who are needy and worthy. I know it gives glory to Christ and brings great joy to the receivers and sometimes brings them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Then, there is the ripple effect.

I have found it is one in ten. One man or woman out of ten that is helped it effects them to the point where they now have a giving heart as well. It is small for sure but over a lifetime those small ripples add up to tsunamis waves of giving.

The difference is that earths tsunamis bring destruction, tsunamis of love bring great love, joy and relief.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” — Scott Adams

Now, I have said it numerous times before and it will be said again.

Giving to those who need is different from those who are leeches.

Giving to those in need is giving to someone who through no fault of their own is experiencing difficulties. These folks appreciate the help while trying to help themselves.

The leeches are the lazy, ungrateful ones that demand more, more, more while giving nothing in return. 

Give, but give wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This brings us to another important aspect of giving.

We are not to randomly give (although there is nothing wrong with that, like helping a handicapped man or woman with their groceries to their vehicle or giving up your seat on the bus) our fiances or time.

We are to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide us where the resources will be used effectively.

If you want the Masters help you must be willing to obey His direction in your life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Using this method has brought me to places I would never have gone and done things I would never have done. But the results were incredible beyond my imagination.

Doing these things adds jewels to your crown which Christ will place upon your head when you are in Heavens home.

Another pay off is when you are in desperate time Jehovah gives pay back seven times more than you gave.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ha Melech Psalms 98:6 The LORD the King) for blessing me with the most incredible adventure in life that was beyond the wildest imagination. Thank you that we have accomplished so much in this life You have blessed me with. In You fantastic name I praise You. 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

Another Word For

So I gave them up to the stubbornness of their heart, To walk in [the path of] their own counsel. Psalms 81:12 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version 

Stubbornness is another word for selfishness.

laugh at fools

Stubbornness is refusing to listen to others because they are telling you something you do not want to hear.

So a doctor informs a diabetic they cannot drink soda pop any more. The diabetic tells the doctor to stuff it, continues on drinking soda pop. One day his body cannot take the abuse any longer and goes into diabetic shock. Then because they are selfish (which is what immaturity is as well) instead of accepting responsibility for their actions, they blame the doctor.

Believe me, I have seen a lot of it.

When Jehovah tells us to stop doing this or to start doing that, it is for our own good, not because He is some cold hearted tyrant. Because He has given us free will, it is up to us to choose to obey or disobey. We disobey at our own peril.

To disobey Jehovahs guidance only leads to self destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rophe (Exodus 15:26 The LORD (our) Healer) always help me have a submissive heart to listen, understand and obey you in every aspect of my life. I know this leads to spiritual, physical and mental health and healing. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Healer of all, 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

When Trouble Comes

 The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Those of us that have walked with Christ for a while know full well the difficulty in trusting in Him. There are times it seems as if there is nothing but trouble a woe in our lives. It seems as if the world is crushing down on us and we are going to explode. We cry out unto Jehovah but He is silent. This is the most difficult time to trust in Him. Even those of us that have walked the trail for a long time have at times difficulty trusting in Him during crushing crises.

JEHOVAHS CARE

That is okay though.

As long as we call out unto Him, trusting He will answer (and He always does).

For me I have experienced Jehovah delivering me from the tsunami of pain (mental, physical and spiritual) as well as being blessed with His presence during the tornadoes of life, when my life is being ripped apart by unemployment, destruction of relationships. One thing that is the same in each is His Spirit being with me through it all.

The Holy Spirit encourages, reassures and strengthens me through it all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Elohim Machase Lanu (Psalms 62:8 GOD Our Refuge) for blessing me with Your impenetrable refuge from the fire storms of life that try to burn me to nothing through trials and temptations that come my way.                                                                                                               Thank you that You are my impenetrable refuge when the tsunamis of trouble and worry come crashing down upon me with little to no warning.                                                                            I praise You in the name of He who calmed the seas of trouble in His disciples lives Jesus Christ. Amen
