Believe It or Not There Are

 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Believe it or not there are folks that live as if they believe they are sinless.

Whenever the do something wrong they quickly make up excuses for why A: that it not what really happened,

B: it was not their fault or

C: it is okay because everyone else is doing it.

Trying to convince them of their wrong doing is exhaustive.

I have found the best last response to these lies is :

“You may lie to me and if you repeat the lie enough, even convince yourself, but you cannot con Jesus.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

and then walk away.

It shocks even the so called “unbelievers”.

Many times we commit sins without even knowing it. That is why we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits guidance and quickly repent of the sin before its roots grow too deep. Then, it is a real battle to conquer them. With the help of the Holy Spirit this can be accomplished.

Pull out your sins when they first occur to prevent them from taking root unless you want a real battle on your hands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent ( which means we are to admit what we did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness, stop committing the sin and make restitution for the offence committed- so if we sold something from someone we are to give it back), Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies Me) bless me with the Holy Spirits help to convict me when I grieve You and the help me repent so as to remain a child of Your with whom You are well pleased. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose blood brought me redemption Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am Not Afraid.

 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

Please my Beloved Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8The LORD Mighty In Battle) whenever hard times come always help me to remember that You have promised that You would never leave me nor desert me and that You are always true to Your word. Jesus has said, I will never fail you. I will never abandon you. ”Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I know that when satan is attacking his hardest it is to prevent me from accomplishing important tasks You have prepared for me to do to bring honour to You and to bring the little lost sheep to You.

Keep awake! Watch at all times. The devil is working against me. He is walking around like a hungry lion with his mouth open. He is looking for someone to eat 1Peter 5:6-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When all seems lost, please remind me that You are right there beside me, walking me to glorious victory in Your beautiful name. You have promised that the battle is not mine but Yours to win. I know many battles will not be won instantly but take time.

The Lord my God is with me, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He has much joy over me. With His love He gives me new life. He has joy over me with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Please enlarge my faith (trust) in You to bring it to a magnificent completion. Remembering the past victories cause me to sing songs of gratitude and joy for the victory You are bringing me in this battle.

I pray this in the name of my most glorious King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Amen

Why do You Give?   

Lazy people are soon poor Proverbs 10:4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are bombarded with feel good stories on the TV news of giving to help the poor, giving to help those with sicknesses and disease.   

BUT, what is at the heart of the giver?                      

Do they genuinely give because of their concern or do they give to feel good and to be prideful on social media look at me, look at me. Or to brag to friends, family and co-workers? Do they participate to be a part of the crowd or because they are peer pressured to give?        

Yes the Lord loves a cheerful giver BUT, we must first take it to Him in prayer where to give, how much to give and when to give. Then, we will be giving to please the Lord which is the only reason any Christian should give.               

Give joyfully and thankfully to the Lord in abundance as a sacrifice of love and appreciation as He has given in abundance sometimes with great cost (like the cross) to you.  

Give, but give to bring glory to Christ not to self Joseph a son of Jehovah

  Why do you give?

 Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) for blessing me with the tools and the opportunities to help those that are worthy of help. May these opportunities be a conduit to guide the needy into Your gracious loving arms. I praise You in the name of He who gave His blood for my redemption, 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

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

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

Smack Them Down Hard

Please rescue me Jehovah Maginnenu (Psalms 89:18 The LORD Our Defence) from worrying over the trouble makers in my life and the dishonest ones that are making my life miserable.

I know You are my loving, caring Father who protects His children from those with wicked intentions.

I know that even though it seems as if they are getting away with it and indeed, even prospering from it, Your righteous hand shall smack them down hard with Your Divine justice.

The wicked cannot scam You, plea bargain with You or con You. I know that Your justice will be done in Your way, in Your time ( but can You hurry it up a bit please).

Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

the devious reward

Thank you for Your true justice in the name of the Supreme Judge 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

Will be on Them.

 Those who keep on doing good and are looking for His greatness and honor will receive life that lasts forever. Those who love only themselves and do not obey the truth, but do what is wrong, will be punished by God. His anger will be on them. Every Jew and every person who is not a Jew who sins will suffer and have great sorrow. Romans 2:7-9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

BURN LIKE THE SUN

There are those out there that teach that because Jesus is love we can do what ever we desire with no consequences. Because Jesus is loving there can be no Hell. Those that believe this are living in a fools world. I believe we all know there is a Heaven and a Hell but many use this mantra to deceive themselves.

Could it be any more blunt than this passage in the Bible?

Yes, there are always consequences for our actions both here on earth and in eternity. The wise are loving towards others and receive a great reward.

The foolish only love themselves and receive great damnation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank You my Beloved Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses) for blessing me with Your amazing graciousness for the service I provide for You. Thank You my Beloved for the numerous opportunities to serve You in the community around me. Thank you my Beloved that You with hold Your blessings from the stingy and selfish. I exalt You in the name of my Beloved big brother with whom I deeply desire to emulate in doing good and sharing, 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

Stay Away From

 Have nothing to do with foolish talk and those who want to argue. It can only lead to trouble. 2 Timothy 2:23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version.

WRONG WALK

At some time in everyone’s life we meet those who love to argue. They will argue about anything and everything. Chances are, these same folks will never admit they are wrong.

Avoid them like the plague. Because, that is exactly what they are, a disease to the heart and mind to all they come in contact with.

Unless absolutely necessary do not even say hello to such perverts because doing so opens the door for another argument about nothing that will get you all worked up. Seeing this brings these sicko’s the greatest delight and make you look like a fool.

Not only that but when you lose control you make Jesus and all Christians look bad which, when they know you are a Christian, is their intention.

So, for Christs sake and your sanity stay away from them.

Stay away from mental and spiritual thieves. They will dance the dance of fury with you all the way to Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Metsudhathi (Psalms 18:2 The LORD My High Tower ) bless me to stand guard in Your high tower for the low lifes that enjoy nothing more than to tear down others, myself included.                                                                                                                                              Please bless me to never open the welcoming gates of entering into my social grace because they bring nothing with them but destruction.                                                                                                    I sincerely request this in the name of He who only open the gates to His heart to those who were prepared to participate with Him in a loving relationship, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Prayer to Forgive Those

 

Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Father I deeply desire to forgive other as You forgive me.

Help me to forgive those in my care when they are selfish, ungrateful and abusive towards me. I need this to prevent me from having my heart filled with hatred and bitterness. If the heart is filled with this then it is impossible to care in a loving manner.

Help me to stay focused on the fact that in serving them, I am serving You and You are always appreciative of my compassionate efforts.

do not allow them to control you

But, Father just as You specify that repentance must come before forgiveness so too must there be repentance before the healing is possible.                 

Please send the Holy Spirit to convict them and bring them unto repentance less their attitude condemn the to Hell.

Thank you that You are always there for me to cry out my anguish to when those in my care are selfish, abusive and ungrateful. I humbly request this in the name of He who forgave the repentant sinner on the cross beside Him, Jesus Christ. Amen 

Those who refuse to repent are also those who will continue the abuse. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 

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

Dancing with the Devil.

 For He will command His angels in regard to you, To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. Psalms 91:11 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

The angels are here to protect you in your service unto our Heavenly King Jesus.

If you have no desire to serve Him, what right do you think you will have to receive His angelic protection?

Or worse yet, if you participate in dangerous activity like sky diving or doing drugs or committing crimes, what right do you expect angels to protect you from their consequences?

You cannot expect the angels to protect you if you are dancing with the devil. Joseph a son of Jehovah

furnace of hell

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) please bless me to be my guiding light though every waking moment of this life.                                                                                                        When satans temptation of doing anything stupid and dangerous looks like fun please shine Your light of truth upon this wicked deception to prevent me committing injury to myself and or to nay near me.           I sincerely request this in the name of He who never fell for any of satans scams during His temptation trials in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                          Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year.
