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

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 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

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

I Like to Do It Incognito

 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:1-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

The other day while walking down the hallway after visiting a friend in the hospital I noticed little plaques on the wall with names of folks who donated to the hospital. The bigger the donation, the bigger the plaque.

It was the same in a church I recently dropped off clothing to give to others for free. I could not help but think that although these were generous gifts they were given out of excess and were given to puff up the ego of the giver.

How many of the parishioners gave out of their meager wages denying themselves for the good of the church or hospital?

To me, these are the real generous givers.

It is the same when I watch folks running for a cause like cancer.

How many of them are running with selfie sticks?

Are they running for the cause of a cure for cancer or for the cause of puffing up themselves?

When I give, I like to do it incognito, because of the disdain for being applauded for it in public. Instead I always give thanks to Jehovah for the idea to give to that specif cause and for the opportunity to do so with great joy.

Give but give with the object of giving glory to Jehovah not to self. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for guiding where to give and how much to give to those who You deem worthy. Doing so creates a heart that beats with ecstatic joy in helping while giving glory to You magnificent name.                                       I praise You in the name of He who gave the ultimate sacrifice for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

What Will Happen To?

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

 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 conduit 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: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) for the assurance that the wicked will receive their just rewards, if not here while on earth then definitely in eternity in Hell. Please bless them with wisdom to see the errors of their ways and to repent of them. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge 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

I Know Two People

 

 Kindness and truth will be to those who devise good. Proverbs 14:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I know two people who just turned eighty a short while ago.

The one lived for herself all of her life and is now living alone in a big house with no friends. No one cared about her birthday. She has no one to help her and her life is very lonely and difficult. She always laughed at the goody two shoes, now she envies her.

The other was always and still is always active in helping in the community. There was what seemed like an endless line of folks every day coming to her house with home made gifts. If she ever needs any help there are countless volunteers lined up to gladly help her.

With age we reap ten fold the seeds we have sown in our younger years. Generously be loving and caring to others, you will need it when you get old and it is repaid unto you in abundance. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to be a blessing to all those around me so as to be a respectful emissary of You. I humbly request this in the name of He who gave His cherished life for me Jesus Christ Amen.

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

None of Those Who.

 

 Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed; Those who turn away from what is right and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed). Psalm 25:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Have you ever been treated unfairly by narcissists? They will use you and abuse you. They love to set you up to shame you and to start fights. They drag your good name through the mud and back stab you at every opportunity. They laugh and think it is funny.

I have experienced it with one who did this for decades. During this time Jehovah was teaching me how to deal with these foul creatures. At the time it looked like he was winning with his constant unwarranted attacks but slowly the tables turned and in time they turned faster. Now he will not show his face around me because the Lord has taught me to use the wicked ones wiles against him using the Holy Book and he looks like a fool and shames himself every time he opens his mouth.

Sometimes it is quick, sometimes it is slow but Jehovah always delivers on His promises. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength, wisdom, gracefulness and meekness to deal appropriately with the wolves that lurk amongst us. I praise You in the name of He who dealt most effectively with wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Is Worse Than No.

So if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and while there you remember that your brother has something [such as a grievance or legitimate complaint] against you, leave your offering there at the altar and go. First make peace with your brother, and then come and present your offering. Matthew 5:23-24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Never ruin an apology with an excuse.”Benjamin Franklin

I have encountered too many that are too immature to apologize for their wrong and or are doing so to save face. They always make up excuses to deflect responsibility for their wrong doing. Most times during their wicked schemes they use the excuse to deflect the blame from themselves and try to make you feel as if you are the guilty party.

An excuse is a skin of a reason wrapped up in a lie. A. W. Tozer

They are not remorseful and will commit the same offense the very first opportunity they get.

A false apology is worse than no apology at all. Joseph- Anthony: Green

They arrogantly lamebrainly laugh believing they have gotten away with their dippy apology. It always comes back to haunt them though.

I can think of one knucklehead that tried this with me. The thing is though is that it repeatedly comes back to bite him and each time the bite digs deeper into his wicked heart. It drives him insane. I asked him to help me once and he gave an excuse with his apology for not helping me. Now, whenever he needs my help, I remind him of his excuse and use it as a reason for not helping him. Whereas he laughed and bragged to others that he made a fool out of me now it is he that is made to look the fool and everybody laughs at him. I do not do this for revenge but as a defense against his wicked schemes. He is the type that always wants something from you but is never willing to help when you need it.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Magen ( The Lord my Shield ) bless me with being a shield against the wicked perverted ones that foolishly attempt to con and manipulate with their disgusting lies. Guide me to use Your words to mortally wound them in defense so that they will howl and scour away. I sincerely request this in the name of He who saw through all the phonies and dealt with them appropriately Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It Will Come Back and Bite You.

 

 For the sin of their mouths and the words of their lips, Let them even be trapped in their pride, And on account of the curses and lies which they tell. Psalm 59:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have encountered pathological liars, they are arrogant and proud. When they spew forth their vile poison in conversation I fall for it but the Lord reveals their lies afterwards. The next time I encounter them they are questioned about what they said. They try to cover up one lie with another. I play with them and they keep on making themselves look like idiots and liars. Then they become enraged and cry baby that they are being picked on. I have no mercy on them because they do not deserve it. These are the type of scum that would steal the food from a starving man and expect him to thank them for it ( and I have seen that happen a lot). They are selfish, self centered and they need constant attention because they lack self confidence.

The sad thing that I have discovered is that the habitual liars refuse to believe the truth even when it is undisputedly placed in front of them.

On the same terms because they are so accustomed to lies they believe them when they are told to them and are constantly made suckers out of by other pathological liars. That is quite comical to watch to see who can scam who the most.

“He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads” Thomas Jefferson

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chereb ( Lord the Sword ) bless me with the right words to pierce deeply into the cold, wicked filthy hearts of the wicked to mortally wound them. This is done to protect the innocent ones that they prey upon and to ,by Your grace, bring them unto conviction of their wicked tongue and into repentance. Please hold back my tongue that it does not speak with hate nor vengeance nor pride nor perverted pleasure at enjoying watching them suffer. I humbly request this in the name of He whose words pierced deeply into the pharisee’s and scribes wicked hearts Jesus Christ. Amen.

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