The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.” Genesis 3: 12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament
I have seen it too many times.
Foolish folks who refuse to man up and confess when they have done wrong whether intentional or not.
At first it used to be so frustrating trying to get them to be mature and admit their wrong. They would tell one lie to cover up for another lie. The whole time they believe they are so smart and you are so stupid. In truth they make themselves look like fools.
Not only that, but they have destroyed my trust so instead of enjoying a loving, mature relationship, now it is a formal one.
As well, if they are parents, they are setting a bad example for their children then get angry when the children do it to them.
“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole
Eventually, their minds become so distorted they laugh when you speak the truth and firmly believe a lie when it is told to them. This will ultimately cause their downfall.
He who hardens his neck and refuses instruction after being often reproved (corrected, criticized),Will suddenly be broken beyond repair. Proverbs 29:1 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version
Now, sometimes I make a game of it just to see how many idiotic lies they can make up. It can be quite comical.
Prayer: Oh praise You Holy Spirit Jehovah Emet (God of truth Titus 1:2 ) for blessing me with teaching me the truth and the terrible disastrous consequences of living a lie. May You always convict me when I stray from Jehovahs Divine truth. I humbly request this in the name of He who only spoke the truth when He walked amongst us, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you always be mature enough to walk in the light of Jehovahs truth and avoid the darkness of satans lies. Joseph a son of Jehovah

For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. Philippians 3:18-19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I have met many, including in my own biological family, that when it is tactfully explained to them their lifestyle is sinful, they just turn their heads away. I know I might just as well talk to the wall because they are not listening. They enjoy that lifestyle and have no intention of giving it up. They foolishly believe there is no consequences for their debauched lifestyle. Sometimes people don’t like being told that they are personally responsible for the consequence of their lifestyles.
They are deadly wrong.
It begins to catch up with them in their early forties and progressively gets worse as they age. It starts out slowly but as they age, their body and mind begins to become weaker and more sustainable to mental and physical diseases. Finally, in their final years they are bitter, lonely, shells of a human being waiting to die.
The strange thing is that they are in a living hell and want to die but are afraid of death because they know they will be cast into the eternal Hell when they pass on to the other side.
Please do not be like them.
Repent now and live a godly life or suffer the eternal consequences later.
Prayer: I humbly implore You, Jehovah Hashopet (Judges 11:2 The LORD the Judge ) to grant me the wisdom and grace to reach the heart and mind of those blasting down the highway to hell to convince them to turn from their wicked ways less they suffer eternal damnation. I candidly request this petition in the name of the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the wisdom to turn from darkness to the eternal light right now before it is too late. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

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

“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
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

So don’t be too good or too wise! Why destroy yourself? On the other hand, don’t be too wicked either. Don’t be a fool! Why die before your time? Ecclesiastes 7:16-17 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation
Too much wisdom can lead to self righteousness. Being a do gooder for the praise of others or as a bargaining chip with Jehovah(i.e. Look at all the good things I have done, now you owe me).
Too wise is when you have an arrogant ego over those who know less about being a Christian than you do or know less about the Bible than you do.
If you know more than others, one of the first things you must know is that Jehovah hates arrogance and that our wisdom comes from the grace and understanding that was given through the Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah
How can being a fool cause you to die before your time?
Could it be that being a thrill seeker unnecessarily puts your life a risk , like bungee jumping or kayaking dangerous rapids or try to out ski an avalanche or living a dangerous lifestyle like homosexuality?
Could it be that living in excess of indulgences as gluttony and or drugs and booze destroys your body quicker than normal aging does?
Could it be that lying, cheating and abusing folks means you will get seven times back by Jehovahs ultimate court of justice?
You dance with the devil, you are going to get burned. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for knocking me off of any high horse I climb on in order to prevent my head from getting too big.
Thank you for guiding me away from dangerous activities that can lead to disaster.
I praise you in the name of the humblest of with whom I adore and try, with Your help, to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen
May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every dayJoseph a son of Jehovah
A rebellious and stubborn people, Who walk in the way that is not good, [following] after their own thoughts and intentions Isaiah 65:2 The Holy Bible The Amplified Version
Supidiness and stubbornness go together like peanut butter and jam.
I know a woman that cannot eat greasy food, if she does she violently vomits after just one bite. One day we were at a take away and she ordered greasy chicken. I told her not to purchase it or she would become violently ill. She insisted that that would not happen this time. As soon as we settled in her van and she took one bite she swung the door open and puked her eyeballs out.
You see, she was stubborn.
She knew she was not to eat that junk yet insisted that this time she would not get sick (even though she did every time previous to that). That was very stupid because she paid a very dear price for her stubbornness.
How many times has Jehovah instilled in us not to do something yet we stubbornly and stupidly return to our wicked ways. When the disaster comes crashing down on us because we were stupid and stubborn and refuse to listen to Jehovah do we not blame Him?
How stupid is that?
Stupidness and stubborness is also arrogant.
When I was a tree planter and would try to help the rookies who knew nothing of planting there were some who insisted on doing it their way. Even though, that met they worked just as hard but made a penitence of money that the rookies did that were respectful and listened and obeyed as they were shown. The dumbo’s blame everyone and everything but themselves for their disastrous planting season.
How many times has Jehovah tried to show us a better way to live yet we give Him the finger and go out and live how we see fit? When disaster comes (and it always does) we blame everyone but ourselves.
Stupidness and stubbornness are the worse curse of mankind. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer:I thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with patience and a strong arm when I am a stupid, stubborn obstinate child of Yours. I know You only desire what is best for me and must use strong methods when I am a disobedient child of Yours. I praise You in the name of He who was strong with His disciples when necessary Jesus Christ. Amen
May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day
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
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
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up James 4:1-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.
Is it not true, this is what causes so many fights today, the feeling that you are the center of the universe? Because of this, you feel no qualms about stepping all over everybody else because you think you are better than anyone else. You refuse to see anyone else’s point of view. You are rude because again, you think you are the center of the universe. Maybe you are to momma and or granma, but not to the rest of us. Grow up and be a man or woman. Learn to respect others.
How about your relationship with God?
In your communion with Him do you have the gimme, gimme attitude?
Are your prayers centered around yourself? Then you cry baby because God does not give you everything you demand.
So many times I have encountered people who say they don’t believe in God (I say they say they don’t believe in God because I believe we all deep down we all know He exists. Many just refuse to accept Him because He will not give them their every desire like spoiled children and because they are haughty and refuse to submit to anyone). When I ask them why, they reply that it is because He has not answered their prayers. When asked what their prayers are they are always self centered.
Of course God will not answer those prayers (Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Gods help or guidance. That is what He wants us to do.).
My prayer is: Not my will but Thy will be done my God. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do. May my words and actions bring glory and praise to You and may they lead the lost little sheep to You.Joseph a son of Jehovah
Now what is friendship with the world?
I believe it is self seeking pleasures, whether it be booze, drugs, sex or commercialism. Again, it’s all about you.
That is the life of a loser. Their life is left with a void that they do not understand why. The reason is because they do not have the heart of a servant of the most regal of kings, Jesus Christ.
The happiest people I have ever met are also the humblest.Joseph a son of Jehovah
Humble: not proud or haughty: not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary
I love being humble and yes most days I am very joyful (Happiness depends upon physical stimulation, joyfulness depends upon Jehovahs love beating in your heart).
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy as I nurture our loving relationship which is the most joyful experience there is. I applaud You in the name of He who brings the light of joy to my heart 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
Adam and Eve were created to not only have communion with Jehovah but to care for the garden. The other command Jehovah gave them was to pro create. Then God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply. Genesis 1:22 The Holy Bible New Living Translation
This is a major flaw in homosexuality, they cannot pro create. This is why homosexuality is wrong.
As well Jehovah created our bodies to operate in a certain manner. Homosexuality goes against that manner. When you go against Jehovahs design you suffer the consequences which in this case means sexual disease.This is why homosexuality is wrong.
Just this morning I read there is an epidemic of increase of sexual disease such as syphilis.
Is syphilis not a major disease among homosexuals, more so than aids?
Most times when we suffer the disease is not a curse from Jehovah but the result of our arrogant rebellion of His will. His will is intended for our own good but we refuse to obey. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Jehovah commands we live in a certain manner to stay mentally, physically and spiritually healthy.
The homosexual lifestyle rebels against Jehovah and arrogantly gives Him the finger. This is why homosexuality is wrong.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) bless me with the wisdom, grace and self control to teach those who are stumbling to Hell in the darkness the righteous manner in which to respect both themselves and You by taking proper care of their bodies. May it guide them to Your light of truth that leads them to Heaven. I sincerely request this in the name of the best Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
