It Happens Slowly

For simpletons turn away from me—to death. Fools are destroyed by their own complacency. Proverbs 1:32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I find it happens slowly without you even realizing it.

It is the same with the individual as with a nation.

Just look around. Even twenty years ago you would not see the filth on TV that you see today. We call it tolerance but it is filth.

Today we see homosexuals in Boy Scouts as scout leaders because we have to be tolerant of their lifestyle and then the scouts getting sued because children are being abused by these disgusting creatures. We call it tolerance but it is filth and innocent children are getting hurt because of it.

“People don’t drift toward holiness, they drift toward compromise and call it tolerance, and drift toward disobedience and call it freedom.” D. A. Carson

We see folks living as they want to live instead of the constraints of civilized society and now we see the break up of families and folks stupidly going in debt of which they will never get out of. That is the reward for your freedom.

We see liberoltards suggesting there be no constraints on illegal drugs and then cry baby because of increasing poverty and increasing crime. Instead of trying to get them off of the drugs and becoming contributing members of society.

The further we get away from Jehovahs guidelines of what is right and what is wrong, the closer we get to destruction of the individual and of society. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God Isaiah 30:21 ) for speaking the truth to me and for blessing me with Your Divine guidance in my life. It may not be politcally correct but it is certainly Christ correct. I praise You in the name of He who always lived a life of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Jehovahs truth always guide your steps. 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

I Feel Uncomfortable

We must remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘We are more happy when we give than when we receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Speaking personally, I feel uncomfortable when folks give me things.

On the flip side, I love to give to those who are needy and worthy. I know it gives glory to Christ and brings great joy to the receivers and sometimes brings them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Then, there is the ripple effect.

I have found it is one in ten. One man or woman out of ten that is helped it effects them to the point where they now have a giving heart as well. It is small for sure but over a lifetime those small ripples add up to tsunamis waves of giving.

The difference is that earths tsunamis bring destruction, tsunamis of love bring great love, joy and relief.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” — Scott Adams

Now, I have said it numerous times before and it will be said again.

Giving to those who need is different from those who are leeches.

Giving to those in need is giving to someone who through no fault of their own is experiencing difficulties. These folks appreciate the help while trying to help themselves.

The leeches are the lazy, ungrateful ones that demand more, more, more while giving nothing in return. 

Give, but give wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This brings us to another important aspect of giving.

We are not to randomly give (although there is nothing wrong with that, like helping a handicapped man or woman with their groceries to their vehicle or giving up your seat on the bus) our fiances or time.

We are to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide us where the resources will be used effectively.

If you want the Masters help you must be willing to obey His direction in your life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Using this method has brought me to places I would never have gone and done things I would never have done. But the results were incredible beyond my imagination.

Doing these things adds jewels to your crown which Christ will place upon your head when you are in Heavens home.

Another pay off is when you are in desperate time Jehovah gives pay back seven times more than you gave.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ha Melech Psalms 98:6 The LORD the King) for blessing me with the most incredible adventure in life that was beyond the wildest imagination. Thank you that we have accomplished so much in this life You have blessed me with. In You fantastic name I praise You. 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

Could These Be

BURN LIKE THE SUN

Could these be the signs: When it says in the book of Revelation that we can not see the sun, could this be a reference to the fact that in many cities you can not see the sun because of pollution?

When it says stars will fall from the sky, could that be in reference to satellites falling from the sky?

When it talks about starvation, isn’t there more starvation occurring now then any other time in history?

When it talks about fish disappearing in the oceans, do we not have massive depletion of fish now? In deed who would have thought of sharks as endangered?

When it talks about a certain number of animal species disappearing how many animals are on the endangered list? Who would have thought of the polar bear being on a threatened list?

When it talks about men being lovers of men, do we not have more self centeredness now than at any other time in history (where people only care about themselves)? Is homosexuality not emerging as normal and accepted, even though it is filth that destroys body, soul and spirit (i.e. how come sexual diseases are more rampant in the homosexual community than any other? Why do so many homosexuals need psychiatric counseling because of depression and anger management?)

When it talks about fire coming from the sky and consuming man and beast alike, could they be talking about the super volcanoes?

When it talks about land becoming desert, could it be talking about deforestation?

When it talks about having the number on their hands and head, could they be talking about one world currency with chips implanted in the body like is some northern European nations today? Is that not happening now where countries are talking about having standard for world currency?

When they talk about how people beg to die but cannot not, could they be talking about terminally ill people or old people left in seniors homes alone and unloved that want to die, but doctors keep them alive, maybe to make money off them with their drugs?

Are they not developing micro chips that are very tiny and can easily be inserted into our bodies?

So, what do you think?

Do you believe we are in the end times?

The time is near, which side of the rapture are you going to be on? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35) – The LORD Is There that even though the clock is quickly ticking towards the final battle I know that You are right here with me, reassuring me that Your hand is guiding me to the rapture so as to evade the terrible punishment that is coming fast to those that live in this wicked worlds system. I pray for the opportunity to guide as many as possible in this system to Your Divine system which leads to eternal life in Heaven instead of Hell. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of my mighty conquering, victorious King Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So How’s That Going Now Eh?

FURNACE OF HELL

“Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10 New International; Version.

I remember in the sixties and seventies when the mantra was: sex, drugs and rock and roll. Being an infant in Christ I knew this was wrong and refused to go along with the crowd. Yes I was laughed at and bullied a lot, but still wouldn’t back down.

Now over forty years later when I go back home sometimes I run into that crowd. Boy do they look ancient. Their bodies are all broken down from living in the fast lane. They are shells of human beings. They have no family or real friends. They have no real purpose in life, yet stubbornly cling to those destructive dogmas. Many of them are either homeless or living in decrepit buildings.  I look at them and ask them: “So how’s that going now eh, with your sex, drugs and rock and roll?” 

It is not that I am being arrogant towards them but am asking if they have had enough of this life and am willing to come to Christ. They all laugh and are proud of their lifestyle (although I do not know why) and mock me for being a Christian.

No man is free who is a slave to the flesh. Seneca

I on the other hand have slowly over decades  blossomed into a beautiful flower for Christ. Yes my service to Him has been hard, but He was and is with me every step of the way. We have planted a lot of seeds all over the world. Walking with Jesus brings a life filled with divine love, joy and hope.

If someone is trying to manipulate you into doing drugs or having premarital sex don’t walk away from them, RUN.

As surely as the sun rises is the east so too will the vile wickeds lifestyle lead to pain, emptiness, heartache and loneliness. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Take it from an old fart that has both lived it and seen it. You are too precious to Jesus to throw your life away.

”If we (freely) admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins (dismiss our lawlessness) and (continuously) cleanse us from all unrighteousness (everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action)” 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

If you are living that lifestyle now call out to Jesus now. He is always there, He always cares. He loves you.

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him firm in your faith, the God of all grace, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.” 1 Peter 5: 6-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with the wisdom of what is righteous and the strength to walk in its path and to not deviate from it. Thank you for being so gracious as to forgive me when I stray from that path and realize it and repent You eagerly help me to regain my footing upon the Path of Righteousness. I exalt You in the name of He who is the epitimy of righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have you been there yet?

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

I want to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferingPhilippians 3:10  The Holy Bible, The New Transaltion Version

Have you been there yet?

You know, have you walked through the valley of Hell. A place of fire and torment.

I have. It was during a toxic relationship. The person was terribly abusive, mean spirited,selfish and cruel. I stayed believing I could help this person. Of course they must want to resolve their issues and take action themselves. This person did not want to change their behavior. Finally I walked away.

Then, came another time of hell, the time of recovering from the abuse. I kept on calling out to God, but He was silent.

Thankfully God did direct me to the resources needed to recover. It took a year.

Through that time I developed a very deep and personal relationship with God. There was no other way for this relationship to exist except my going through the hell first to get rid of the toxic relationship that put a chasm between us.

In time the wounds were healed and my spirit resurrected into the family of Christ.

If you are going through the fire right now perhaps it in necessary to burn off bad habits or beliefs.

My trying to serve this abusive person prevented me from serving God. So, He just stepped back and allowed the abusive person to do their worst (a boy did they do a job on me) to burn off my feeling of obligation to them. Once the relationship ended, then came the healing.

Through the healing came a deep love for and respect for God.

So too is it possible for you.

If you are going through that hell, whether it be an addiction or toxic relationship or health or financial problems perhaps it is because you need to have something burned off that restricts you from your relationship with God.

Yes definitely get help.

I am so happy I did.

They helped open my eyes to a lot of things that has helped me ever since. At the completion of this time your spirit will be resurrected into a close relationship with God.

Believe me it hurts God too to have to step back and watch you go through this, but it is necessary.

Even though it hurts our Beloved to watch, He does step back and allow us to go through Hell to get us into Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) Judges 6:12 for blessing me with walking through my time of torment and agony. Thank you for healing me when You finally had enough and guided me away from the tormentor. I would never had made it without You. With my deepest gratitude I thank you in the name of the greatest Healer of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I’m Giving it All Away.

Give burden to Jesus

 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?Matthew 6:25-27 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

This is for the worry worts.

You know they type, if there isn’t a crisis in their life, they will make one.

Why do you waste your time, effort and health on such frivolous things?

Not me, I give it all away.

Give it all away to Jesus that is. If you claim to be a Christian that is what you are supposed to do. Give all your troubles to Jehovah. Believe in Him. Believe He will soothe all your frets and provide a solution to you.

After all He took care of an entire nation, feeding them and caring for them, for forty years in the dessert, we are of course talking about the Israelite’s in the Exodus. And, they numbered over two million. If He can do that, what is your problem compared to that.

Worry is an insult to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Pray a sincere prayer and read your Bible.

Sometimes you may have to wait for your solution. How long did Abraham wait for the birth of Isaac. You cannot rush God; He works on His time, not yours.

Another thing, God is all wise. His answer may not be what you want, but is always in your best interest. He knows much more than you.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him Romans 8:28 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation.

So, when you finally receive your answer, don’t sit on your hands, take action. It is a partnership. He will supply the solution to your problem and the tools necessary to resolve the situation. BUT, YOU must take the action needed for resolution. It is teamwork.

And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us.”
2 Corinthians 1:10 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

So, what are you waiting for?

Do it now. Open up your heart and pour all your worry upon Him. He is waiting to hear from you.

You have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling Psalms 116:8 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers 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 8:38 39 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

I have confidence in the only confident thing in this world: That the Holy Spirit is right by my side through it all. Both, the good times and the bad. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Here I am my beloved Jehovah Hossanha (God our maker). Mold me into the vessel You wish me to be, in Your own time and manner. I trust You completely to guide me and know You walk with me in good times and bad. In the name of Him who gave completely to You and for us Jesus Christ we pray. 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

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

Shouts in the Street.

THE FIRES OF HELL
She raises her voice in the markets;
She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather];
At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:
“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded 
and undiscerning?
How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,
How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?
“If you will turn 
and pay attention to my rebuke,
Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
“Because I called and you refused [to answer],
I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer];
And you treated all my counsel as nothing
And would not accept my reprimand,
I also will laugh at your disaster;
I will mock when your dread 
and panic come,
When your dread 
and panic come like a storm,
And your disaster comes like a whirlwind,
When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].
“Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer;
They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me,
Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the 
Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel,
And they spurned all my rebuke.
“Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way
And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.
“For the turning away of the naive will kill them,
And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them. (Unfortunately I have seen too much of this even in today’s society, especially amongst the liberals, homosexuals and so called intellectuals).
“But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely 
and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.”  (I have seen this and am living this today. It is a great comfort and instills great peace of the heart). Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with Your indisputable truth. It has enlightened me to a life free from the darkness around me and the gift of walking in Your righteous light all the way to Heaven. I praise You in the name of the light of the world 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.

Two Things I Have Asked of You.

 

 Two things I have asked of You; Do not deny them to me before I die: Keep deception and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion. So that I will not be full and deny You and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or that I will not be poor and steal, And so profane the name of my God. Proverbs 30:7-9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have been on both sides of this coin.

One time I was on hard times. You could not beg borrow or steal a job and my saving ran out. I went to the government for help but they were useless like usual. Because I could not pay my hydro there was no heat in the house in the dead of the winter ( it was warmer outside that it was inside that house) and the only food I had was when I walked up and down the ditch to collect pop bottles and beer bottles to get enough money for a loaf of bread and jar of peanut butter. That was my food for the week. In my suffering the devil came a knocking. He suggested I rob a bank to get money for food. I was seriously considering it then called out to Jehovah to take my life before I dishounoured Him. This went on every day for a month in one of the coldest bitterest winters on record at that time. Just as I was about to tie a noose a man came to the house that had hear about my plight. He not only paid all my bills, made sure the cupboards were full but put a fire under the lazy butts of the useless government workers and I received about four months back pay for unemployment insurance they kept form me for no other reason than they were lazy and incompetent.

On the other side of the coin about a decade after this I had a high paying job ( which the Americans walked in bought the company out and shut it down leaving over two hundred people without a job, including me). I lived in a nice apartment with good food in my belly. Even though I had this I stayed loyal unto Jehovah by serving Him as a volunteer at the local hospital and on a clean up crew for the local trails. Many times the tempter came a calling mocking me for my service and saying I should just take it easy and enjoy life.

Now, I live the best life, neither rich nor poor financially but am dependent upon Jehovah every day for my needs and He never lets me down.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for always providing just the right measure of everything necessary in my life every day. I thank you in the name of He who abundantly provided for the five thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.

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