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

The Wise Man Waits

For The Lord is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished. Nahum 1:3 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We have the neighbours from Hell living beside us. Last year they ripped up a part of our garden then planted their own in it claiming it was no theirs. I think they are jealous because our garden is so beautiful and everyone comments on it They threw rubbish in our back yard. When I would bring friends to look at our garden in the back yard, they would yell and scream at us because (according to them ) we did not have the right to do that. If we did that our friends would see their marijuana and want to steal it (which they had no interest in). We could not trim our roses sharon bushes because then people would see their marijuana and want to steal it.

I prayed to the Lord for deliverance from these wicked creatures and for four months He told me to be brave and the battle was His.

This spring He directed me to have our land surveyed and install a camera so that if they came on our land this year they would be spending their summer behind bars for trespassing, destruction of private property, theft of private property and public nuisance .

They were told to clean up their mess our they would be sued (which they did).

We had to have our septic system cleaned and wanted to put in a new one (which we we informed was not necessary, the line just needed cleaned out). Then we were informed the neighbour put in a new one last year without a permit which would cost him around fifty thousand dollars if the county found out. They know we know about it.

I carry a camera with me so that if they yell and scream at me this year it will be filmed, given to a lawyer and they will be spending the summer in a psychiatric ward. So now they HAVE to behave themselves or else there will be severe consequences.

It is driving them nuts that they HAVE to behave themselves but it sure is a lot more peaceful on this side of the fence.

Each time the Lord reminded me of how He works bring peace to a destructive situation for us while punishing the war mongers.

What gets me is how they can go to church and she teaching children at Sunday School.

The wise man waits for the Lord for it is His fight that will lead to victory. All other paths lead to disaster. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohe Yeshuathi (Psalms 88:1 LORD GOD of My Salvation ) for blessing me with Your awesome salvation from wicked beings that steal our land and peace. Thank you for providing the resources to to force the wicked to behave themselves. Thank you that this has brought so much joy to my life. I exalt You in the name of He who will bring peace unto all the world Jesus Christ Shalom (Judges 6:24 The LORD our Peace . Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and 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

A Prayer for Trust

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 2 Corinthians 9:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Oh my caring God please bless me with ample patience to deal with an obstinate one in my care.

Please bless me with abundant wisdom to know how to provide the proper care while not allowing for manipulation, conniving nor deceiving to enslave me. To know when it is best to walk away from the tormentor to maintain my sanity.

Please bless me with a sanctuary away from the abusive one so we can commune together in peace.

Please bless me with plentiful strength to endure the constant nit picking and complaining that is just being used to get attention.

In Jesus’ 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

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

He Has Given Me

 God did not give me a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given me a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

If Jehovah did not give it to us then who did?

It was satan that gave us a spirit of timidity where we are afraid to speak the truth. He did this to prevent us from from speaking the truth and bringing the lost to Christ. He also did it so that the wicked ones could gain power over the weak and abuse them to greater degrees. This has been done through out history where if the people spoke up in the beginning bad things like the Nazi’s would not have happened.

It was satan that gave us a spirit of cowardice so we would not stand up to bullies. This created terrible situations for entire societies (look again to Nazism). As well, he gave us a spirit of cowardice and fear so we would not step out into the unknown world Jesus is leading us to in service to Him.

Jehovah has, through faith, given us power to conquer evil folks and love to reach out to the unloved. He has blessed us with sound judgment so we will not fall for his schemes and scams. He gave us a spirit of discipline so we can grow in power in His spirit to live Godly lives.

This means living a life of having a well balanced mind that is balanced by the Holy Spirits guidance.

We have calmness by surrendering ourselves to Him and allowing Him to keep us calm in tense situations.

Through the Holy Spirit we gain self control (sometimes He keeps us under control, sometimes He reminds us of when we are losing it and depends upon us to make the effort of maintaining self control). Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for always being with me and helping me live a victorious life through You. I praise You in the name of He who I always try to imitate in every area of my life to bring You glory through my life just as He did, 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

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

Can you count them?

 I remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘I am more happy when I give than when I receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

I have been blessed that it has always been easy to help others. Sometimes when reflecting back on the days activities with my Beloved, He reminds me of little things as well as big ones that have been done for others. Many times these good deeds are done out of second nature. We both share a good laugh and He is greatly thanked for the opportunity to share and help others He presented me with through out the day.

loving to each other

Helping others every day bring joy and meaning to my day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

But, here is the thing though.

You can be a revolutionary.

By observing your actions you can encourage others to be helpful and giving as well.

When I was living in this city in Asia I used to buy food and give it to the beggars on the street. After a few months I noticed others were emulating my acts of kindness. At it did not click where the others got the idea of being so kind and generous until my eyes were opened by the Holy Spirit.

young-and-old-all-need-love

Your simple acts of kindness can be the beginning of a compounding act of love in your neighbourhood, in your city, in your province and in your country. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It is scary to begin this habit and we always need the Holy Spirits direction in where to go and who to help. When we surrender out will to His, He takes us to amazing places and helps us accomplish amazing feats. Oh, they will not make the six o’clock news but you can bet Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are clapping their hands in Heavens and smiling as they say: “What a wonderful child of mine they are. I love them so much and am so proud of them.”

Now, you do not need to do good deeds to attain Jehovah, Jesus or the Holy Spirits love and approval but just as they are good to you, so too are you to be good to others.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have you ever thought of all the good deeds you have done through out the day? Can you count them?

Prayer: Glory, glory excelsior my adoring Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) for blessing me with one of the most special gift of all, the gift of sharing with others. This blesses both of us as well as the receivers. I praise You in the name of He who shared so much of Himself with others and who I always attempt to emulate 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
