Do You Give it Back?

CHRISTIAN DEVOTION

 “Blessed be God . . ., who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Those of us who have been around the bush long enough have been through the meat grinder once or twice haven’t we. In those times of tribulation hasn’t God comforted you and encouraged you?

Hasn’t He in His divine love healed you?

So, where is your gratitude?

When someone does something nice for you, shouldn’t you return the favor?

When you see someone suffering shouldn’t you go to them and emulate what God did for you?

You know, the most painful and horrible experience in my life was being in an abusive relationship and the healing that took place afterwards.

In my teaching days I witnessed a lot of hurt and pain because of students being in an abusive situation. It broke my heart. I would sit them down and share my experience with them. Because I had walked that mile in their shoes they listened to me. In the end it helped guide many of them to Jesus.

Please for the love of Christ and your fellow men, when you see someone suffering reach  out to them.

Not only can it be a comforting and encouraging experience to them, it can also be an opportunity to share Jesus with them. This in turn may help bring them into our Holy family.

If you are experiencing a time of great difficulty and or pain and are reading this, take heart. God is not stupid. Perhaps He is allowing this experience to train you to help others in the future.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) – Is 49:26 for blessing me with Your strength, comfort and encouragement when I endured the fiery times of trouble, anguish and confusion. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay it forward to someone who is experiencing the fire storms of life to help them and to guide them to the greatest Strengthener of all, You. In the name of He who was strong enough to endure the agony of the cross for His love of me, Jesus Christ I humbly ask. AMEN

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

How do You Take Care Of ?

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. —1 Corinthians 12:22 New Living Translation.

Now if we are a family of Christ as Jehovah as our Father then there are big brothers and sisters and little brothers and sisters. The big brothers and sisters are the ones that have a deep understanding and experience with God. Their walk with God is strong. The babies are the new members of our family or the ones through no fault of their own are weak.

The big brothers and sisters should not be critical or haughty of the babies. They should nurture them, encourage them and be respectful towards them.   

The more mature Christian is to be loving, patient, encouraging, and mentoring to those who are not as far along the walk to Heaven as themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The babies should listen to and obey their big brothers and sisters. When they speak to them with love about areas in their life that needs to be corrected they should not be insulted or hurt by the actions.

If we all behaved like this in the churches the churches would not decrease. Many churches are losing members because of the mean spiritedness of other members. Those hypocritical members are judgmental and condescending to the babies in the family. The babies are hurt and give the middle finger to the church and walk away. Indeed how many new members of the family walk away from Jesus because of this? I tell you true, their blood will be on the guiltiest hands (yes blood. Because they walk away from Jesus because of you, you are the reason they are going to hell.).

How do you think that makes Jesus feel?

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for lovingly blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be the child You desire me to be. Please bless me to emulate Him to come along side those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am (that does not mean childish but rather inexperienced) and to lovingly guide them to a deeper loving, obedient relationship with You. Thank you for the big brothers and sisters whom You have sent to mentor me and may I emulate them as well. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Here is the Catch

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

 “See, I am sending an angel before you to protect you on your journey and lead you safely to the place I have prepared for you. Pay close attention to him, and obey his instructions. Do not rebel against him, for he is my representative, and he will not forgive your rebellion.  But if you are careful to obey him, following all my instructions, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and I will oppose those who oppose you. Exodus 23:20-22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

It is a good feeling that those who chose to be my enemies make themselves enemies of Jehovah. BUT, here is the catch, we must be obedient unto Him.

I believe the angel referred to in this instance is the Holy Spirit. Yes He is the best guidance councillor there is.

When we rebel against Him, He withdraws His protection and guidance. Woe be to the man or woman that puts themselves in that situation. I speak from a lot of personal experience. It only leads to trouble, agony, confusion and heartache. The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent He is quick to return to us.

We ignore the Holy Spirit at our own peril. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13) – The LORD that Sanctifies me for blessing me with sending me The Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be obedient unto all of Your wise instruction. I know You give this for my own good.                                                                                     He is the most awesome Teacher. He knows how to teach me so that I will understand.                               I remorsefully apologize for the times I am a rebellious student. I know it is not possible but I would love to be perfect so that I would never hurt Your treasured heart.                                                                        I exalt You in the name of the best Teacher ever, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He is Waiting

heavenly love

 But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.” (Luke 15:20 The Holy Bible,New King James Version)

No matter if you are an addict, a materialist, a ladder climber an adulterer or whatever it does not matter. When you turn your heart to God, He will come a running to you faster than an Olympic sprinter. He will embrace you with His precious love.

It does not matter what you have done in your life. When you turn to Him and ask for forgiveness and accept Jesus into your heart He will love you as only He can. There is nothing in this world as satisfying and fulfilling as His sweet love.

…neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:39 The Holy Bible, New International Version

When you give your life to Christ all your filth, no matter how bad, will be washed away like a gentle rain softly washes the dust from a flowers pedals.

It is then you will for the first time in your life truly feel alive with a wonderful blessing of Gods supreme love living in your heart.

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions, it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5 The Holy Bible,New International Version

Prayer: Thank you EL RACHUM (Merciful God) that You forgive us, Your weak children, when we repent of our filth. Thank you for washing it all away and for having amnesia of our forgiven trespasses. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made it all possible 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

One Whose Heart Breaks

REPENT OR ELSE

When I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent. I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Selichot (God Of Forgiveness) for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness. Please bless my heart to be as forgiving unto the repentant as You are towards me when I repent. I sincerely give thanks and request this in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

One Goes With the Other.

chief-duty

 And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. 2 Corinthians 9:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah gives us so that we are to give to others. If you do not share then why should He share with you?

Jehovah will not provide you with abundance of earthly delights like a home you cannot afford or a new car with all the toys you do not need or expensive clothing you do not need but and abundance of spiritual blessings to complete the task He has intended for you in His divine plan.

“I exhort you, press on in your course, and exhort all men that they may be saved.” — Polycarp

The earthly blessings will be a time and place to accomplish His plan through you. It will also include the materials you need , like maybe a computer.

The only way to accomplish this task is with Divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness which can only be received through you dependence upon Him. He will abundantly supply these things.

I have done more for the Lord through the simple things that Jehovah lavishly provides for me than through the gadgets the world offers. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with Your daily providence to accomplish the tasks You have predestined for me to do for Your glory , Your kingdom and those who need assistance. I extol You in the name of He who provided for the four thousand Jesus Christ . Amen

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

But Whoever has Adequate Resources

SHARING

 But whoever has the world’s goods (adequate resources), and sees his brother in need, but has no compassion for him, how does the love of God live in him? 1 John 3:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I have seen people who do without their daily needs so they can give to the bleeding hearts (most of whom are scam artists in my opinion) on TV cry babying for money. It is pitiful to see but they think they are doing good (meanwhile many of these ceo’s are getting paid millions of dollars and the people you think you are helping are just too lazy to help themselves). Many falsely believe they are obeying Jehovahs commands to help the “poor”.

When I was was in Central America folks were constantly telling me to get married and have lots of children so they can support them when they get old. Meanwhile they cannot support their families. They would look at me and say because I have more money than them I “owe” it to them to give them my money.

As well, volunteering in soup kitchens it was common for the “poor” to come up to me and brag about the new tattoo they got and then cry baby they do not have money for food and demand I give them money because I have more money than them.

We are to give, but we are to give sensibly.

Check out the organization (begin by looking at the ceo’s wages ) and if the money is going to actually help those who are worthy of the help.

I do not care if you think I am a scrooge. I would rather give wisely and be considered a Scrooge than give foolishly and be a sucker. Joseph- Anthony :Green

If you cannot afford to help financially then help by donating your time to a worthy cause.

Prayer:Please Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) provide wisdom unto those who wish to honour You but have limited financial resources to organizations that will appreciate their skills more than their finances. Please provide those with available financial resources to organizations that will wisely use the gifts graciously provided unto them. I ask this in the name of he who always provided for His disciples when he walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
