The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121: 8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
When I was a wee little boy there was a show in which the woman would hold up a mirror and claim to be able to see us. Sometimes I would cry out the she sees me in my underwear. It is funny to think of how naive I was back then.
But now, I know Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit really do see me.
That is good because when temptation comes I know they are watching and that is enough for me to run from it.
It is also good to know they see my pain and struggles. They come and comfort me and encourage me. They see me victories and come and share in the joy with me.
They also see when I am beginning to go astray and warn me of its dangers.
I do not fear Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are constantly watching me, I rejoice in it. Joseph a son of Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees ( Proverbs 15:3 ) for blessing me with Your ever present eye upon this child You love and adore so much. May my ear always be attentive to You wise, loving, caring voice every moment of every day. I exalt You in the name of my loving best friend, Jesus Christ who watches over me as well. Amen
May be be blessed with comfort and assurance that our loving Poppa is watching you this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.'” – Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible, The New International Version.
When we become Christians that means we accept Christ as our King. Because Christ belongs in the spiritual realm and the world belongs to the physical world, because Christ dedicates Himself to others we must follow His lead and dedicate ourselves to serving Him by serving others where He directs us to.
That is contrary to the world which serves themselves.
This means we are in a constant battle with the world (including ourselves at times when we want to serve self instead of Christ . The cross was a place of torture and intended shame. That is what we can expect from those walking the Highway to Hell. They will daily mock us and try to shame us. They will do everything they can to make our lives miserable. This will be a daily experience.
Even though it is not enjoyable, we should thank them for this treatment. Because, the more they make us suffer, the more they drive us into Jesus’ loving arms.
Torture me as you may, you will not destroy me but make me an ever stronger servant of my loving King Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for the tormentors in my life because they draw me ever closer to You which is the greatest blessing of all. I esteem You in the name of He with whom I love to commune with every day, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with drawing from the spring of living waters of comfort, strength and encouragement to extinguish the fiery arrows of the wicked, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
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

Hate what is sinful. Romans 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version
Do you notice that when you see something sinful you get disgusted and angry, like homosexuals kissing on TV?
When you are a Christian that is good.
That means you heart is aligned with Jehovahs. Make, no mistake about it, He hates wickedness.
That does not mean we are to have vendettas against the wicked.
We should lovingly bring them into the Truth.
If they reject it, they are rejecting Christ, not you. That should bring great agony to our hearts because in rejecting Christ, they are condemning themselves to Hell.
Liberalism says if it feels good do it. Christ says obey my commands or you will destroy yourself, you chose. I will send you the Holy Spirit and He will teach you right from wrong. Reject Him to your own peril.
Christ does not condemn anyone, their own actions do. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) for lighting the way to live a decent healthy lifestyle and to detest the filth that is committed by those that relish walking in the dung of sin and arrogantly participating in it for all to see. Please guide my heart not to hate them but to pray that they see and accept the Light into their lives before the damn themselves to eternal Hell. I sincerely request this in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer
Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?
Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?
In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?
Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?
Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?
When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?
On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.
Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?
Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.
Now, that does not sound stupid does it?
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 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
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
Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt? Matthew 14: 23-31 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.
When we take our eyes off of Jesus we are heading for spiritual fall. Joseph a son of Jehovah
What can take our eyes off of Jesus?
Which on of these categories do you fall into: there is problems in my family ( instead of fretting about these problems and being a dingbat and trying to fix them yourself, why not do the wise thing and give it over to Jesus. He will send the best guidance councilor, the Holy Spirit to help you.),
I need money. I don’t think there has been a time since money was made when people didn’t have this concern. Again rely on Jesus to supply your needs. Didn’t He promise He would take care of us when He said:” Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.”
I’m sick. Now this is the time to get into deep relationship with God because that is when you are weak and through His divine strength He will help you. He may not cure you but give you the strength to endure it.
When we keep our eyes focused on Jesus He will give us everything we need to handle any crisis.
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrew 4: 16 New Living Translation)
You know, one time I was going through the most painful experience in my life. It was recovering from a terribly abusive relationship. In my deep anguish I, a broken man, sobbed to Jesus to come and rescue me from this pit of hell. Through an internet Pen Pals site and a Christian radio program I noticed while searching the internet (Focus on the Family I was introduced to loving caring Christian councilors that helped lift me out of that hell and heal me. I am forever indebted to both them and my wonderful Jesus for bringing them into my life at that moment.
Now my whole commitment is unto Jehovah God our beloved Abba.
The greatest honor is to be a servant of the greatest king, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
