But Some Went To

Many of the people who were with Mary believed in Jesus when they saw this happen. But some went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. John 11: 45-46 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Even after Jesus rose the dead there were still those who witnessed it that refused to accept Him as the Messiah.

Imagine seeing someone rise out of a coffin and say lets go for a pizza after Jesus commanded them to arise. Would you still doubt that He was indeed the Christ?

Yet, here they were, running like lapdogs squealing on Jesus as if He just did something naughty.

Men and women reject Christ because they refuse to submit to Him. They are afraid of surrendering their life to Him. They fear men more than they do the Son of Man.

Men and women refuse to accept Christ because they are too busy worshipping themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Then, how can we expect those with hard hearts to accept Him no matter how hard we try.

I say, if they will not listen to The Holy Spirit, they most certainly will not listen to us.

So, do not take it personally when others reject you when you try to introduce them to Jesus.

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jesus Yasha ( Lord my Savior – Isaiah 49:26 ) it rips me heart apart when others reject you and it is so hard to walk away from them knowing there is nothing I can say or do to accept You as their Savior. I weep with You in Your Beautiful name. Amen

May you always be wise enough to accept Christ as your Savior Joseph a son of Jehovah

Bless Me to Enable Me To

But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. Luke 6:27-28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Are you willing to?

It is our natural inclination to close our ears to words we do not wish to listen to.

Are you willing to suppress that and listen to The Holy Spirits voice as He convicts you?

It is our natural inclination to hate our enemies and make them suffer as much as we can.

Are you willing to love them?

That is not the mushy nonsense you see in movies or on TV.

It is an effort that can only be accomplished by surrendering to the power of The Holy Spirit. It does not mean that you condone nor tolerate abusive behaviour. If you love them you will help them to understand why they are abusive ( many times it is because of abuse they have suffered and have not been healed of ) and help them get counselling. If you love them you will not empower them by allowing this behaviour to continue but will allow them to suffer the consequences of their actions.

Purge yourself of toxic folks less their poison kills your love and you are rewarded with nothing but misery in return. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

When others hate us it is natural to hate them back.

Are you willing to love your enemies by understanding why they hate you and seek reconciliation in the relationship. If they refuse are you willing to love them enough to behave in a respectful manner towards them. Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbours, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.” — G. K. Chesterton Prayer:

Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to enable me to conduct myself towards difficult folks in the noble manner in which Your gracious son Jesus Christ did. I wish not just for peace in this relationship but to use this situation to glorify You and to bring the little lost sheep into Your Heavenly fold. Please bless me with the strength and healing of ostracizing myself from toxic folks until they accept that their behaviour is not loving nor acceptable.

It is in the name of He who exemplified Christian behaviour towards others, Jesus Christ, that I humbly beseech You. Amen

May you always be receptive to and obedient to The Holy Spirits guidance in all of your relationships. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Meekly Implore You Jehovah Mauzzi

“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy—full of greed and self-indulgence! Matthew 23:25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When it comes to matters of religion, you probably have discovered that the most dangerous person in the Church is a hypocrite. You can’t tell them anything without a terrible reaction.

Unfortunately there are too many of these filthy marshmallows in every church.

They are quick to point out every little fault with all those in the congregation while perpetrating even worse sins in their own life.

When confronted with this they are like marsh mallows and welt in the heat. They take it personally like they are sweet angels and how dare you judge them by the same manner they judge others. They are like immature spoiled brats and throw a temper tantrum.

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

These pretenders need to be expelled from the church until they repent or else they will destroy the entire congregation.

I have personally seen active and vibrant churches destroyed by just one of these wicked creatures so yes it is to be taken seriously.

Prayer: I meekly implore You Jehovah Mauzzi (Jeremiah 16:19 The LORD My Fortress ) to set up a strong impenetrable fortress around every church to keep the wolves at bay.

Please bless us with the grace and wisdom to take them to task when they are ripping apart Your holy family and, if necessary, expel them from the congregation for its survival.

We have enough outside Your church trying to destroy us, we do not need them inside as well. I respectfully request this in the name of our Church leader, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the tactfulness and strength to discipline and, if necessary, expel the destroyers of your church Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Please JehovahTsori

“A few days later this younger son packed all his belongings and moved to a distant land, and there he wasted all his money in wild living. About the time his money ran out, a great famine swept over the land, and he began to starve. He persuaded a local farmer to hire him, and the man sent him into his fields to feed the pigs. The young man became so hungry that even the pods he was feeding the pigs looked good to him. But no one gave him anything. Luke 15: 13-16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Although it is hard, the most loving thing we can do for those who chose to walk on the wild side is to let them go and pay the price. It is the only way for them to mature and take responsibility for their actions.

The same can be said of those that want to live in a nanny state ( welfare ).

If they are too lazy to work let them pay the price.

Why should hard working folks allow leeches to deprive them of their hard earned wages. To do otherwise only encourages them down a generational spiral path of a destructive lifestyle. This in turn is taught to their children and leads to the collapse of societies.

Read your history books and see what happened when societies became liberal. I will give you a hint, they self destructed.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength Psalm 19:14 ) bless me with the strength not to interfere with the destructive path my loved one has chosen to take.

Sometimes we have to step back and allow them to suffer the consequences of their wrong actions to help them grow up and mature.

It is so hard to watch them destroy themselves but I know there is nothing I can do but not feed their addiction by providing them with finances or free loading off of me by trying to get me to allow them to live in my adobe free of charge so they waste their wages.

I humbly request this in the name of He who did not stop the rich man return to his empty wealth, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Some times the best help is to provide no help. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May you be blessed with the wisdom and strength to know when to step back and allow enablers to get off of the tit and onto the meat. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You are Jehovah Elohay Mishpat

“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:12-14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Rapha (God my healer)Jeremiah 33:6 ) the cuts are deep of past injuries committed by others. There is anger, bitterness and hurt that can only be healed by Thy loving touch.

Help me to concentrate on our loving relationship instead of the toxic one from the past.

Help me free myself of abusive toxic folks no matter who they are, including family.

I depend upon You, Holy Spirit to help me set Godly boundaries in my relationships. I depend upon You to guide me in the proper use of these skills to nurture loving relationships while purging myself of toxic folks who only bring unnecessary drama and chaos to my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Help me to have faith also that you are Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice! Romans 12:19 ) and that if the wicked refuse to repent they shall suffer seven time more than they have caused me to suffer by Your just hand.

Lord, I’ve been stuck in the past in so many ways. Guilt. Anger. Unforgiveness. It is robbing me of the joy I know You long for me to have. It inhibits my service to You and the relationships with those I care so much about.

Please forgive me for getting stuck there and help me get off to a fresh start.

Like Paul, help me forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead as I take this journey with you.

Whenever negative thoughts attempt to enter into my mind please replace them with joyful reminders of the amazing times we have spent together. In the name of He with whom I look forward to sharing a Heavenly hug with when He welcomes me home Jesus Christ, I humbly pray. 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

Are Very Arrogant

A righteous man hates lies, But a wicked man is loathsome, and he acts shamefully. Proverbs 13:5 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Have you ever wondered why you hate it when you hear someone tell lies (even if they seem harmless) ?

It is because we imitate that which we love.

So, just as Jehovah hates lies and liars so too do we.

Loathsome is described as causing feelings of loathing; disgusting; revolting; repulsive.

Personally speaking, I find liars and braggarts to be particularly disgusting and repulsive. I have to run from them before I either explode or feel strongly sick to my stomach.

I believe that is exactly how Jehovah feels and a quick reference in your Bible will prove it. When they are a family member, it makes me want to cry seeing them walk the path of ultimate destruction and knowing they are too full of themselves to listen.

Again, I know that, that is exactly how Jehovah feels from reading and understanding the Bible.

Liars are very arrogant and believe they are gods in their own eyes. Many times they look down on others and feel no shame in lying to get what they desire at someones elses expense.

Eventually, Jehovah has enough of them and then allows them to reap what they sow. It is a terrible thing to witness and rips the heart apart even though we know they deserve what they are getting.

Stay away from them, they only bring heartache, pain and disaster. They are truly the devils children.

Hell is full of the arrogant. Heaven is full of the humble. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) to teach me Your irrefutable truth. Thank you for opening my eyes to the destructive life of liars and to avoid interacting with them less they entice me to follow their footsteps to Hell. I thank you in the name of He who not only spoke nothing but the truth but lived it as well, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the God of truth protect you from the lying vipers that slither through out this land and guide you to not become one of them.

What Will Happen To

 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 conutit 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: Please Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) bless me with helping me discern the difference between those that need help and those that are parasites upon society. The one my heart dance with joy for the opportunity to help. The other is a waste of time, energy and resources. I humbly request this in the name of He who only gave salvation to those who were willing to become His servants and work for His kingdoms interest Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Like to Do It Incognito

 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:1-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

The other day while walking down the hallway after visiting a friend in the hospital I noticed little plaques on the wall with names of folks who donated to the hospital. The bigger the donation, the bigger the plaque.

It was the same in a church I recently dropped off clothing to give to others for free. I could not help but think that although these were generous gifts they were given out of excess and were given to puff up the ego of the giver.

How many of the parishioners gave out of their meager wages denying themselves for the good of the church or hospital?

To me, these are the real generous givers.

It is the same when I watch folks running for a cause like cancer.

How many of them are running with selfie sticks?

Are they running for the cause of a cure for cancer or for the cause of puffing up themselves?

When I give, I like to do it incognito, because of the disdain for being applauded for it in public. Instead I always give thanks to Jehovah for the idea to give to that specif cause and for the opportunity to do so with great joy.

Give but give with the object of giving glory to Jehovah not to self. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for guiding where to give and how much to give to those who You deem worthy. Doing so creates a heart that beats with ecstatic joy in helping while giving glory to You magnificent name.                                       I praise You in the name of He who gave the ultimate sacrifice for me 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. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

Which Book Are You Showing?

the devious reward

 One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth. Proverbs 13:7, New International Version

It is said that in China there are three sets of books. One set you show the tax man at tax time that shows you are poor.

One set you show people who want to invest in your company that says you are rich. In reality they are no where near that wealthy.

Next they have a set of book that states that they are one step from bankruptcy. Again it i a lie. They are doing okay but do not want to pay the taxes. 

How many times do we see rich people who claim to be poor and bankrupt to cheat investors out of money?

In reality they have tons of money stashed off shore and life like kings while laughing at the suckers they fooled.

At the opposite end of the scale, how many times do wee see poor people pretending to be rich (another phrase may be “Keeping up with the Jones’” Just out of curiosity, who are these Jones’ anyway? I have never met them, have you?) They strut around like they are so haughty and pretend to be wealthy but in reality they are in debt up to their eyeballs playing this stupid game.

It is not the fact that a person has riches that keeps them from heaven, but the fact that riches have them. Dr. Caird

Then lastly there is the real set of books which states how much the man or woman is really worth. That one they try to hide.

My motto is “who are you that I have to impress you?

This is me, if you like me let’s be friends, if you don’t like me let’s try to get along in spite of our differences.”

Now  we all want and need attention sometimes, but let’s be wise, not stupid.

If you pretend to be something you are not, when the truth is discovered you will be the laughing stock and will be humiliated.

On the other side of the coin is Jesus. He says: “Come as you are, warts and all. I will love you.”

Speaking from experience I can assure you that no earthly relationship can even begin to compare to the exhilarating and awesome relationship Jesus has to offer and will give to any and all who accept Him.

See what great 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 New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with the wisdom and integrity to live the life of truth. You, Jehovah and the Holy Spirit are the only ones I desire to impress.

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

This is Why.

 

WORKS OF DARKNESS Adam and Eve were created to not only have communion with Jehovah but to care for the garden. The other command Jehovah gave them was to pro create. Then God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply. Genesis 1:22 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is a major flaw in homosexuality, they cannot pro create. This is why homosexuality is wrong.

As well Jehovah created our bodies to operate in a certain manner. Homosexuality goes against that manner. When you go against Jehovahs design you suffer the consequences which in this case means sexual disease.This is why homosexuality is wrong.

Just this morning I read there is an epidemic of increase of sexual disease such as syphilis.

Is syphilis not a major disease among homosexuals, more so than aids?

Most times when we suffer the disease is not a curse from Jehovah but the result of our arrogant rebellion of His will. His will is intended for our own good but we refuse to obey. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Jehovah commands we live in a certain manner to stay mentally, physically and spiritually healthy.

The homosexual lifestyle rebels against Jehovah and arrogantly gives Him the finger. This is why homosexuality is wrong.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) bless me with the wisdom, grace and self control to teach those who are stumbling to Hell in the darkness the righteous manner in which to respect both themselves and You by taking proper care of their bodies. May it guide them to Your light of truth that leads them to Heaven. I sincerely request this in the name of the best 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
