Bless Me to Enable Me To

But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. Luke 6:27-28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Are you willing to?

It is our natural inclination to close our ears to words we do not wish to listen to.

Are you willing to suppress that and listen to The Holy Spirits voice as He convicts you?

It is our natural inclination to hate our enemies and make them suffer as much as we can.

Are you willing to love them?

That is not the mushy nonsense you see in movies or on TV.

It is an effort that can only be accomplished by surrendering to the power of The Holy Spirit. It does not mean that you condone nor tolerate abusive behaviour. If you love them you will help them to understand why they are abusive ( many times it is because of abuse they have suffered and have not been healed of ) and help them get counselling. If you love them you will not empower them by allowing this behaviour to continue but will allow them to suffer the consequences of their actions.

Purge yourself of toxic folks less their poison kills your love and you are rewarded with nothing but misery in return. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

When others hate us it is natural to hate them back.

Are you willing to love your enemies by understanding why they hate you and seek reconciliation in the relationship. If they refuse are you willing to love them enough to behave in a respectful manner towards them. Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbours, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.” — G. K. Chesterton Prayer:

Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to enable me to conduct myself towards difficult folks in the noble manner in which Your gracious son Jesus Christ did. I wish not just for peace in this relationship but to use this situation to glorify You and to bring the little lost sheep into Your Heavenly fold. Please bless me with the strength and healing of ostracizing myself from toxic folks until they accept that their behaviour is not loving nor acceptable.

It is in the name of He who exemplified Christian behaviour towards others, Jesus Christ, that I humbly beseech You. Amen

May you always be receptive to and obedient to The Holy Spirits guidance in all of your relationships. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Meekly Implore You Jehovah Mauzzi

“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy—full of greed and self-indulgence! Matthew 23:25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When it comes to matters of religion, you probably have discovered that the most dangerous person in the Church is a hypocrite. You can’t tell them anything without a terrible reaction.

Unfortunately there are too many of these filthy marshmallows in every church.

They are quick to point out every little fault with all those in the congregation while perpetrating even worse sins in their own life.

When confronted with this they are like marsh mallows and welt in the heat. They take it personally like they are sweet angels and how dare you judge them by the same manner they judge others. They are like immature spoiled brats and throw a temper tantrum.

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

These pretenders need to be expelled from the church until they repent or else they will destroy the entire congregation.

I have personally seen active and vibrant churches destroyed by just one of these wicked creatures so yes it is to be taken seriously.

Prayer: I meekly implore You Jehovah Mauzzi (Jeremiah 16:19 The LORD My Fortress ) to set up a strong impenetrable fortress around every church to keep the wolves at bay.

Please bless us with the grace and wisdom to take them to task when they are ripping apart Your holy family and, if necessary, expel them from the congregation for its survival.

We have enough outside Your church trying to destroy us, we do not need them inside as well. I respectfully request this in the name of our Church leader, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the tactfulness and strength to discipline and, if necessary, expel the destroyers of your church Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li

Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. Proverbs 12:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation Cutting remarks are snide mean and cruel comments.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) please bless me with wisdom, tact and grace to resolve this conflict occurring right now.

If the other refuses to resolve the issue than bless me with the strength, wisdom and grace to disassociate from the offender. I humbly request this in the name of He reconciled us with You, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with Divine help to resolve your contentious issues today with those around you and with yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Not Just To

  Hot tempered people must pay the penalty.  If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again. Proverbs 19:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation          

This applies not just to hot tempered folks but also to those with addictions whether that be substance abuse or whether it be lack of maturity in handling money.                      

If you keep on bailing them out, they will never take responsibly for their action and thus never mature.  You are doing them more harm than good.

Sad to say but it is true that mothers and grandmothers are the worst offenders of this.  

Prayer Please Jehovah Jireth ( Genesis 22:14 – The LORD Shall Provide ) bless me to have faith in Your provisions in my loved ones lives. You will do so in a manner in which they must become more mature children in Your family which will cause my heart to dance with joy.

I humbly ask this in the name of He who provided salvation to those who were willing to accept Him not just as their savior but as their king Jesus Christ. Amen  

May you be blessed with discernment to when to help and when the best help is to step back and allow those to reap the rewards of reckless living. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Please JehovahTsori

“A few days later this younger son packed all his belongings and moved to a distant land, and there he wasted all his money in wild living. About the time his money ran out, a great famine swept over the land, and he began to starve. He persuaded a local farmer to hire him, and the man sent him into his fields to feed the pigs. The young man became so hungry that even the pods he was feeding the pigs looked good to him. But no one gave him anything. Luke 15: 13-16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Although it is hard, the most loving thing we can do for those who chose to walk on the wild side is to let them go and pay the price. It is the only way for them to mature and take responsibility for their actions.

The same can be said of those that want to live in a nanny state ( welfare ).

If they are too lazy to work let them pay the price.

Why should hard working folks allow leeches to deprive them of their hard earned wages. To do otherwise only encourages them down a generational spiral path of a destructive lifestyle. This in turn is taught to their children and leads to the collapse of societies.

Read your history books and see what happened when societies became liberal. I will give you a hint, they self destructed.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength Psalm 19:14 ) bless me with the strength not to interfere with the destructive path my loved one has chosen to take.

Sometimes we have to step back and allow them to suffer the consequences of their wrong actions to help them grow up and mature.

It is so hard to watch them destroy themselves but I know there is nothing I can do but not feed their addiction by providing them with finances or free loading off of me by trying to get me to allow them to live in my adobe free of charge so they waste their wages.

I humbly request this in the name of He who did not stop the rich man return to his empty wealth, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Some times the best help is to provide no help. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May you be blessed with the wisdom and strength to know when to step back and allow enablers to get off of the tit and onto the meat. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You are Jehovah Elohay Mishpat

“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:12-14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Rapha (God my healer)Jeremiah 33:6 ) the cuts are deep of past injuries committed by others. There is anger, bitterness and hurt that can only be healed by Thy loving touch.

Help me to concentrate on our loving relationship instead of the toxic one from the past.

Help me free myself of abusive toxic folks no matter who they are, including family.

I depend upon You, Holy Spirit to help me set Godly boundaries in my relationships. I depend upon You to guide me in the proper use of these skills to nurture loving relationships while purging myself of toxic folks who only bring unnecessary drama and chaos to my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Help me to have faith also that you are Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice! Romans 12:19 ) and that if the wicked refuse to repent they shall suffer seven time more than they have caused me to suffer by Your just hand.

Lord, I’ve been stuck in the past in so many ways. Guilt. Anger. Unforgiveness. It is robbing me of the joy I know You long for me to have. It inhibits my service to You and the relationships with those I care so much about.

Please forgive me for getting stuck there and help me get off to a fresh start.

Like Paul, help me forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead as I take this journey with you.

Whenever negative thoughts attempt to enter into my mind please replace them with joyful reminders of the amazing times we have spent together. In the name of He with whom I look forward to sharing a Heavenly hug with when He welcomes me home Jesus Christ, I humbly pray. 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

Are Very Arrogant

A righteous man hates lies, But a wicked man is loathsome, and he acts shamefully. Proverbs 13:5 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Have you ever wondered why you hate it when you hear someone tell lies (even if they seem harmless) ?

It is because we imitate that which we love.

So, just as Jehovah hates lies and liars so too do we.

Loathsome is described as causing feelings of loathing; disgusting; revolting; repulsive.

Personally speaking, I find liars and braggarts to be particularly disgusting and repulsive. I have to run from them before I either explode or feel strongly sick to my stomach.

I believe that is exactly how Jehovah feels and a quick reference in your Bible will prove it. When they are a family member, it makes me want to cry seeing them walk the path of ultimate destruction and knowing they are too full of themselves to listen.

Again, I know that, that is exactly how Jehovah feels from reading and understanding the Bible.

Liars are very arrogant and believe they are gods in their own eyes. Many times they look down on others and feel no shame in lying to get what they desire at someones elses expense.

Eventually, Jehovah has enough of them and then allows them to reap what they sow. It is a terrible thing to witness and rips the heart apart even though we know they deserve what they are getting.

Stay away from them, they only bring heartache, pain and disaster. They are truly the devils children.

Hell is full of the arrogant. Heaven is full of the humble. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) to teach me Your irrefutable truth. Thank you for opening my eyes to the destructive life of liars and to avoid interacting with them less they entice me to follow their footsteps to Hell. I thank you in the name of He who not only spoke nothing but the truth but lived it as well, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the God of truth protect you from the lying vipers that slither through out this land and guide you to not become one of them.

Boy is That Ever True.

 “There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!” Luke 17:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There was a TV show back in the day that when someone did something bad the main character would always say: “ God will get you for that.”

Boy is that ever true.

Many decades have past since I was a gullible teen (and I thank Jehovah He protected me from the scam artists).

Those that tried to tempt me into doing drugs, having premarital sex, getting drunk all the time just to mention a few are complete and total wrecks. Their bodies are shot, their minds are shot. They live in horrible abject poverty. In their time they lived the high life, many admired them and followed them. They are not so cool now.

You can do as you like with your body but you will also pay the price for it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I tremble at what so many school teachers, homosexuals and others are going to get when they preach their lies to impressionable children.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength ) for blessing me with the strength to resist temptation. Yes the apple looks enticing when it is presented but it is really a deadly poison which destroys, mind, body and spirit when indulged in. I praise You in the name of He who resisted the devil when He was at His weakest, Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

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
