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

A Continuous War.

 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 Holy Bible New Living Translation

As Christians we are in a continuous war.

There is of course, war with those that are liberal minded (if it feels good do it, there is no absolute right or wrong, there is no God).

There is the constant was against demons who relish nothing more than destroying our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

But, the most brutal of all wars is raged in our hearts and minds.

Thoughts of lust, greed, anger, fear and worry are our ever present foes.

That is why it is so important to be in continuous prayer.

When these thoughts and emotions enter our minds and hearts we are to immediately call out to Jehovah to send the Holy Spirit to sweep these thoughts from us like you sweep dirt out of a house.

Then, to fill our house with the sweet fragrance of love, joy and gratitude to our loving Father Jehovah our precious Savior Jesus Christ and our strong Deliverer the Holy Spirit.

“Who sits in solitude and is quiet has escaped from three wars: hearing, speaking, seeing; yet against one thing shall he continually battle: that is, his own heart.”  St. Antony

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with the weapons required on a daily basis for the continual battle in my mind and heart. Thank you that through Your strength and wisdom victory is guaranteed. Thank you that when I lose a battle and call out to You, You sooth my soul while blessing me with healing balm for my heart. You are such a wonderful Warrior King. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

For Our Loved Ones

 

Everyone tried to touch him, because healing power went out from him, and he healed everyone. Luke 6:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Oh Father, it is so frustrating to watch our elderly loved ones condemn themselves to constant injury because they are are stubborn and stupid (which is, may I add, selfish).

Now that they are old and their bodies frail their injuries are so much more serious when they commit these offences against their bodies. It causes untold pain and discomfort to them and makes my caring for them even more demanding.

Please send the Holy Spirit to sternly warn them to prevent these incidents from constantly recurring.

I know a certain woman that is forbidden from eating certain foods. Some of these she used to love to eat. When ever she attempts to eat one of them she is warned it will make her sick. She stubbornly refuses to listen. In no more than one minute after taking her first bite, she is puking her eye balls out.

Sadly I see incident like this with almost all seniors I have come in contact with- unless, they are living in seniors homes.

As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness. Proverbs 26:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Most seniors I have met are the most foolish folks I have ever encountered. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer Jeremiah 30:17 ) my Love, heal those in my care of their stubbornness and stupidity which only brings pain and grief to not only themselves but also to those who love them and are caring for them.

I humbly request this in the name of He who healed the impossible illnesses, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and 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

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

Which No One Can Defeat

 “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, worry, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.  And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as Jehovah in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Anger truly pollutes the mind.

How many times do we allow anger to boil like a tea kettle and then blow off steam and say words we regret later?

I have found that when anger begins small in my mind I immediately pray to Jehovah for control. He always answers and a disaster is prevented.

I have found that when rehashing incidents in the mind that cause anger, the mind becomes inflamed like a fire with anger and destructive thoughts come to mind on how to avenge the wrong. This, of course leads to disaster.

I have found that when these thoughts enter the mind to immediately pray to my Heavenly Father and He extinguishes those thoughts like a water bomber extinguishes as forest fire.

This is not a one off experience but a daily battle against satan and his goons. They are too strong and witty for me.

The best defense that brings victory for these battles is to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to make me sensitive to them and immediately call in the Holy Warrior which no one can defeat, The Holy Spirit.

Here are a few victory verses. Write them down. Repeat them every morning like you are talking with Jehovah. Carry them with you.

Only by your power can I push back my enemies; only in your name can I trample my foes. Psalms 44:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation I am not afraid, for the Holy Spirit is with me.

I am not discouraged, for Jehovah is my God. Jesus strengthens me and helps me. He holds me up with His victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, worry, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.  And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as Jehovah in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I give all my worries and cares to Jehovah, for he cares about me. 1 Peter 5:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

It is successful for me, why not give it a try?

We are in a spiritual battle every day. The only weapon to guarantee victory is to depend upon the unbeatable Warrior King Jesus Christ and His victory verses which sends the wicked scurrying for cover. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for helping me live a victorious life every day through Your help when I need it and through Your protection when the attacks are too strong for me. Thank you for being so patient with me in this continuing battle that will last all the way to Heavens Gate. I praise You in the name of He who always defeated satan and his minions Jesus Christ my Warrior King. 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

Please Pray For Me

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. James 1:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We have the neighbour from Hell. They rip up our flower gardens and plant their own flowers in it and say it is their property. They throw rubbish in our back yard and say it is their property. They yell and scream at me for bringing my friends into our back yard to show them my garden because the neighbour thinks I am showing them his pot and they are going to steal it. Then, the woman goes and teaches Bible school to children.

Anyone that moves the boundary stone is a double sinner. First they are liars claiming land that does not belong to them. Second they are thieves taking what they know does not belong to them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Don’t cheat your neighbor by moving the ancient boundary markers. Proverbs 22:28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Last year when I complained the county told me they could not intervene but could force me to remove the garbage or I would be fined.

The police said it was none of their business.

I talked with a lawyer and he said they were braking the law doing what they did and to film everything.

I just paid a lot of money to have our property surveyed and can now prove their garbage is on our property. I informed them that I have installed camera’s and am carrying one with me to film them if they start yelling and screaming at me again.

Please pray for wisdom in how best to get them to remove the garbage.

I live in Southern Ontario if anybody reading this has any legal suggestions.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) help me with wisdom in the proper manner in which to respond to this violation of our property that will result in justice being done to the violator and peace between the offender and us. I humbly ask this in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with peace of heart and peace with your neighbour. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Thank you.

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

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
