As the Holy Spirit Has

We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. 2 Corinthians 1:8b,9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku ( The Lord Is With You Judges 6:12 ) that You are always there to comfort me through the roughest of storms of sorrow and hardships and the hottest of the desert blazing sands of temptations. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay back to You by being a comforter to someone going through the rough seas or the strongest desert storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who quieted the raging seas in the boat with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

May you comfort and encourage others as the Holy Spirit has for you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It Happens Slowly

For simpletons turn away from me—to death. Fools are destroyed by their own complacency. Proverbs 1:32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I find it happens slowly without you even realizing it.

It is the same with the individual as with a nation.

Just look around. Even twenty years ago you would not see the filth on TV that you see today. We call it tolerance but it is filth.

Today we see homosexuals in Boy Scouts as scout leaders because we have to be tolerant of their lifestyle and then the scouts getting sued because children are being abused by these disgusting creatures. We call it tolerance but it is filth and innocent children are getting hurt because of it.

“People don’t drift toward holiness, they drift toward compromise and call it tolerance, and drift toward disobedience and call it freedom.” D. A. Carson

We see folks living as they want to live instead of the constraints of civilized society and now we see the break up of families and folks stupidly going in debt of which they will never get out of. That is the reward for your freedom.

We see liberoltards suggesting there be no constraints on illegal drugs and then cry baby because of increasing poverty and increasing crime. Instead of trying to get them off of the drugs and becoming contributing members of society.

The further we get away from Jehovahs guidelines of what is right and what is wrong, the closer we get to destruction of the individual and of society. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God Isaiah 30:21 ) for speaking the truth to me and for blessing me with Your Divine guidance in my life. It may not be politcally correct but it is certainly Christ correct. I praise You in the name of He who always lived a life of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Jehovahs truth always guide your steps. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There is Only One Cure

 So don’t worry about tomorrow Matthew 6:34 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Every one of us has it: the worry thief.

We worry about family, we worry about our health, we worry about our country, we worry about our finances. The list just goes on and on.

And what is the result of this?

It destroys our mental and physical health.

There is only one cure and His name is Jesus. When we trust Jesus and place all of our cares into His loving hands He calms the storms around us.

He has done it for me. I used to be the worry wort king, not any more.

Why not give Him a try?

Jesus always provides the solutions for all of our problems. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35 The LORD Is There ) for always being there with me every step of my life. Even though I walked through unknown terrifying territory, as I learned to place my fragile hand in Yours, I learned to have confidence in You. This has blessed me with peace and assurance every day of my life and will all the way until reaching Your Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of He who walked through powerful storms and darkest nights with His beloved disciples, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Is a Daily Requirement

In For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is not a one off experience but is a daily requirement in our walk with Christ.

Every day we are going to experience a time when we need the Holy Spirits power to conquer fear and speak up when we encounter something that is wrong.

Ask the Lord to guide you to resources to help you in your battle.

So for example research homosexuality and find out all the destructive behaviors that accompany it like syphilis and gonorrhea. How about how there is a lot of depression and anger that is a part of their attitude as well. Learn the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Covenant of Social, Economic and Cultural Rights and keep them with you. You have rights to speak up just like they have.

Then there is self discipline. Not just to resist temptation like pigging out on unhealthy foods but for discipline to resist losing your temper when the wicked ones are taunting you.

Yes, there is love. Love is not a feel good emotion but an action to get in there and get dirty to help someone.

So say a family member or friend is constantly borrowing money from you and not repaying it. This gives them a habit of dependence on you instead of maturing and taking financial responsibility for their own actions. Be loving and help them learn to handle their own money without using yours. If they refuse then let them suffer. That may help them as well (although with some folks they just cannot handle money, that does not give them the right to free load off of you though).

We need the daily portions of the Holy Spirits love, self discipline and power to succeed in our daily spiritual battle. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mauzzam (Psalms 37:39 The LORD Their Strength) for blessing me with the strength to maintain self control when the devil and his wicked buddies are attacking me. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to say no to abusers and scammers. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to stand up for Your truth when those walking in darkness are spewing their toxic lies to the gullible. I praise You in the ultimate super man Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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

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

The Same is True with Our

 Being a natural path practitioner for over forty years it always amazes me at the stupidity and laziness of folks. They come to me with an ailment and we talk about it. When it is suggested they make lifestyle changes they become very indignant and refuse to accept responsibility for their own lives. They would rather take a magic pill or lotion to cure them of their ailment.

The same is true with our spiritual life.

We all have area’s that need realignment but refuse to take the necessary actions to cast off the filth and put on the clean garments that Christ offers. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins and what must be done to eradicate them from our lives.

And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. John 16:8 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

But, ultimately the choice is ours on whether we will take the initiative and commitment to purge ourselves of them. We refuse to do so and then cry to Jehovah to free us from the consequences of our sin.

FOLLOW JESUS

“Understanding is knowing what to do; wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is actually doing it.” — Tristan Gulberd

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (Jeremiah 23:6) The LORD Our Righteousness sending The Holy Spirit to convict me when I stray and to guide me back upon the path of righteousness when I repent. He is truly the best Guidance Councilor that is constantly leading us Heaven bound. I praise You in the name of He who guided His disciples Jesus Christ. 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

I am a Son of God.

a duet of adoring babes

 “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” 1 John 3:1.The Holy Bible, The New International Version

Did I get you?

Do you think I said “I am THE son of God?

No I am not THE son of God, but rather A son of God.

When I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and agree to live according to Gods divine rules for membership in this Holy Family (Gods Law) I became a full fledged member of a divine family.

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

When you are willing to do this, you are granted entrance into the best family. A loving Father who will always take care of you. A fantastic big brother who gave His all for you and the best Guidance Councillor, The Holy Spirit. When you join this family you are never alone, you are always loved.

What more could you ask for?

So here is the secret entrance key: “Jesus, I know I am a sinner and have messed up. I need Your love and guidance in my life. I know You died for me because You believe I am so special. Thank you. I accept You as my king, as my savior and as my best friend. I ask You to come into my life and teach me to be a good child of God. In Your loving name I pray. Amen.”

Did you do it?

Good for you.

Congratulations, now you are a royal member of the most special family. Now if you want a deeper relationship with the big three, and who doesn’t (The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) may I suggest you listen to radio stations like Praise 1065,Joyfm, go to crosswalk.com and once you join for free, click on audio and listen to the music. Go to Oneplace.com, listen to the wonderful sermons there (I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer ), subscribe to newsletters like Our Daily Bread, Daily for a few. Why not go to Praize and join a pen pal club?

When you listen to and read these every day and incorporate them into your life, your life will change for the better.

No I don’t promise it, Jesus does and He NEVER breaks His promises.

When you become a Christian, you become royalty. This means you also have royal duties unto the King of Kings. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our loving Father in Heaven) for blessing me with adopting me into Your loving royal family. Thank you Jesus for Your supreme sacrifice that made it all possible. May I be blessed with opportunities to bring more into this most amazing family. I exalt You both and sincerely request this in the name of my big brother with whom I adore 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

The Best Investment.

loving to each other

Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. Mark 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jesus took time out of His busy day to show love to children, should we not imitate Him every day?

How much quality time do you spend with your children?

At meal time (irregardless of whether it is breakfast or dinner) do you sit around the table and talk, cementing your bonds, or do you all sit there with you mugs pasted in front of the idiot box (TV)?

Do you help them with their homework, class projects or go to parent teacher meeting with them?

Do you tuck them into bed and read them bedtime stories them kiss them good night and tell them you love them (that was my personal favorite)?

On the weekend do you do things with them like go to the park or watch a family movie and then talk about it?

You are the potter, they are the mold, what type of vessel are you creating?

Children learn more by watching then listening. What do they see when they see you?

Children learn more by watching then listening. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same goes for teachers.

At the beginning of each semester I would tell my classes: “I am your teacher. I will work hard for you to be the best teacher for you. You will work hard for me because you love me.” Then I proceeded to prove it. At first they thought I was nuts. After about a month, they were my babies and they knew it. They loved their teacher because they saw their teacher loved them (Kinda like Jesus taught me. We love Him because He loved us first.). I believe what I taught them about love will stay with them all of their lives.

“Children will not remember you for the material things you have provided, but for the feeling that you cherished them.” –Richard L. Evans

Children are Gods gift to you, nurture them properly like you would a garden for you are sowing the seeds of the future. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same goes for those who are new children in the family of Jehovah. You are to love them as if they were your own children and dedicate yourself to their well being and maturity in Christ as you would your own children.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with all the marvelous teachers You have sent my way. Thank you for guiding me to emulate the greatest Teacher, Jesus. May I inspire all those You bring to me to become loving obedient children of Yours so as to enrich Your treasure in Heaven (to be surrounded by even more loving children of Yours). I meekly ask of this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

How do You Take Care Of ?

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. —1 Corinthians 12:22 New Living Translation.

Now if we are a family of Christ as Jehovah as our Father then there are big brothers and sisters and little brothers and sisters. The big brothers and sisters are the ones that have a deep understanding and experience with God. Their walk with God is strong. The babies are the new members of our family or the ones through no fault of their own are weak.

The big brothers and sisters should not be critical or haughty of the babies. They should nurture them, encourage them and be respectful towards them.   

The more mature Christian is to be loving, patient, encouraging, and mentoring to those who are not as far along the walk to Heaven as themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The babies should listen to and obey their big brothers and sisters. When they speak to them with love about areas in their life that needs to be corrected they should not be insulted or hurt by the actions.

If we all behaved like this in the churches the churches would not decrease. Many churches are losing members because of the mean spiritedness of other members. Those hypocritical members are judgmental and condescending to the babies in the family. The babies are hurt and give the middle finger to the church and walk away. Indeed how many new members of the family walk away from Jesus because of this? I tell you true, their blood will be on the guiltiest hands (yes blood. Because they walk away from Jesus because of you, you are the reason they are going to hell.).

How do you think that makes Jesus feel?

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for lovingly blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be the child You desire me to be. Please bless me to emulate Him to come along side those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am (that does not mean childish but rather inexperienced) and to lovingly guide them to a deeper loving, obedient relationship with You. Thank you for the big brothers and sisters whom You have sent to mentor me and may I emulate them as well. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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