The best guest.

JESUS MY BEST FRIEND

 Jesus is a knocking, are you a answering? Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. Revelations 3:19-21 The Holy Bible, New International Version

In many cultures they only invite an honored guest to share a meal.

Can you think of anyone more honored than Jesus?

Even better, He brings the food.

And what is so special about the food Jesus brings you may ask?

Yes of course you may, and here’s the answer: the food Jesus brings is the sweetest delicacies there is.

It is a loving relationship with Him. No matter what you have done or said, the greatest lover wants to share a delightful, succulent meal with you.

He never kicks the door open. He will knock, but you must open the door.

Later that day, Jesus ate at Levi’s house. There were many tax collectors and other bad people eating there with Jesus and his followers. There were many of these people that
followed Jesus. The teachers of the law (they were Pharisees) saw Jesus eating with these tax collectors and other bad people. They asked Jesus’ followers, “Why does he (Jesus) eat with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus heard this, and he said to them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor. It is the sick people that need a doctor. I did not come to invite good people. I came to invite sinners.”
Mark 2:15-17 (The Holy Bible, English Revised Version)

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me with the privilege and honor of having You in my heart and in my life. Ours is the sweetest and most treasured friendship there could ever be. I thank You in Your loving name. Amen

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

You are Quick To

the-lord-is-my-strength

“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would” (Gal. 5:17). The Holy Bible, New International Version

Here is where the most brutal battle is fought.

No it is not some famous place like Dunkirk, Vimy Ridge or Nanjing.

It is the no holds barred fight between Spirit and flesh.

Flesh can be considered lust and self serving.

Spirit is of course the Holy Spirit.

The battle occurs every day. Sometimes it is little battles, sometimes it is horrible battles. Think of an alcoholic recovering from his hellish addiction.

The flesh battles the Spirit. And says: “Come on, you have recovered, one drink won’t hurt.

” Or “remember all the fun we had on those drunken parties?”

The Spirit says “Remember all the hangovers and depression, shame experienced when you sobered up?”

How about gossiping? Yeah let’s gossip about______ (fill in the blank).

Let’s hop in the sack with ___.

The list goes on and on.

Let’s cheat on a test at school (where the laugh is on you because you are only cheating yourself).

The flesh says “Let’s serve ourselves, no matter who we hurt.”

The Spirit says “Live by Gods Laws. Do to other people what you would like them to do to you. Do not do to other people what you do not want them to do to you.

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Romans 13:9 The Holy Bible, New International Version

It is hard and many times we fail.

The wonderful thing is when we sincerely apologize to Jesus for our failures and try not to do them again. When we get the help needed by counseling and taking it to God in prayer we are not only forgiven, we grow stronger in our love and respect for the big three:

God our kind gracious and loving Father, Jesus Christ our Savior King and best friend (just think of that, you have the most powerful king as your best friend if you want Him to be) and the Holy Spirit our mentor, healer and comforter.

“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (John 5:4). The Holy Bible, New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Selichot (God Of Forgiveness) that when we mess up and fess up You are quick to forgive and forget. Thank you for using these circumstances to mature my loving relationship with You. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you 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

The deep breath.

HOLY SPIRITS POWER

 Make every effort to add to your faith … self-control … 2 Peter 1:5-6 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

How do you Keep self control?

Most times when I feel a situation getting out of control I just step back and take a few deep breaths.

It is important to keep self control, ESPECIALLY, when teaching.

Sometimes as frustrating as it is people just do not see the obvious, through no fault of their own. Then it is time to just drop it and pray they will come to understand what you are saying. Usually the students get it with in a few weeks of contemplating it.

Sometimes however, when the frustration is overwhelming and they are being a pain in the butt and being antagonist I slam my fist into a wall.(EDITORS NOTE: I do not do this any more. Now I merely inform them if they want to learn they are welcome in my class. If they do not want to learn, there is the door, do not slam it on the way out. Some leave, which makes the class better, the ones that stay straighten right up)

It is not in anger, it is releasing the frustration. It gets their attention and they back away. It is not that they do not understand, it is that they do not WANT to understand. Then just walk away.

If they are stubborn and refuse to see it any way but their way I just call it like it is:” You are stupid and stubborn. I will not speak to you until you apologize and are willing to maturely discuss this.” Don’t talk with them for a couple of days. They usually come around. Stupidness and stubbornness goes together like smoking and cancer. Trying to reason with a stubborn soul is like talking to a wall. I do not waste my time talking to walls.

Sometimes they are just too self centered and then it is best to avoid them altogether because they will do nothing but bring you anger, pain and frustration.

My motto is “Avoid aggressive, self centered people. They will only pollute your heart with anger and sadness.” Joseph a son of Jehovah                                              It has held me in good steed.

Now if it is an addiction get counseling.

Find out why you have that addiction and remove it from you. If you are a drug addict or alcoholic that will mean giving up your friends. They will only continue to pull you back down into that cesspool again. Sometimes the addiction is too strong for you to conquer and that is the time to completely surrender it to Jesus. I did and He instantly defeated my addiction and I have not returned in over ten years. Now, He may or may not instantly relieve you like He did me.

Editors note: since writing this article I have been taught by the Holy Spirit to pray when feeling like losing control. He either calms me down or encourages me to immediately remove myself from the situation which is causing me to lose my self control.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) – Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with the strength, sensitivity to know when I am being baited and the wisdom to either leave the situation or the wisdom to use the right words to defend myself and defeat the wicked foe. I exalt You in the name of He whose words both healed and cut like a knife Jesus Christ. Amen May

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

How to Have a Rewarding Day

be loving like jesus

 A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25, New International Version

Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless. Mother Theresa

How to have a rewarding day: Sometimes it’s the little words that can have the biggest impact. When you see someone sad a simple hi or good morning accompanied with a sincere smile is all it takes to turn the gloomy day into a day of sunshine.

When someone is down a simple compliment like I like your outfit can really be a booster. A simple thank you can brighten a day.

Today, make an effort to say something nice to someone you see with the clouds of despair hanging over their head. Watch their face break out into a beautiful smile.

Better yet, when I was a child I belonged to a group that made it a practice to do at least one good deed a day. Why not make that a habit in your life and see how much it changes your life and the life of those around you.

You know what?

It will make you feel pretty good too.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do. Mother Theresa

Prayer: Please my Beloved Father Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to emulate You today, especially to someone who is in need of some tender loving care. May this be a catalyst to guide them to You which is the most loving thing I can do for anyone. I humbly ask this in the name of He who is the most loving of any who has walked this planet Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This is Why.

 

WORKS OF DARKNESS 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

Fantastic Free Advice

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 

 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8 New International Version)

Let this always be our first move.

Before you make any decisions in life may I offer you some advice from an experienced old man?

I have heard that the Jews have a custom. Before making any decision they pray for three days first.

Let’s expand on that shall we?

Let’s pray and read the Bible for three days first.

If someone is trying the pressure tactics on you, whether it be to buy something, sign a contract or go somewhere or do something no, don’t walk away, RUN away. It is a trap!!! They are offering you sugar but really it is rubbish. When you stand your ground and REFUSE to surrender to their scams they will walk away looking for another stupid sucker.

When you take the time to read the Bible and pray it is saying to God: Okay big daddy, I know You are the smartest kid on the block. I know You love me and have promised to take care of me, so I will wait for Your divine guidance and trust Your providence.” You may not like His conclusion in the short run, but in the long run He will never let you down.

I was once offered what I thought was a jewel of a contract. The benefits alone were very generous, as was the pay. I informed them I had to wait three days and pray. While reading the Bible the reoccurring theme came up about laying snares to catch the innocent. It broke my heart, but I turned the contract down. Another teacher took the job. For three months he was always bragging about how good it was. We were green with envy. Then they sprang their trap. He was treated worse than you would a dog. He was given twice the classes they told him, had many extra duties dumped on him and had to come a running and teach class at his masters every beck and call (for no extra pay). Then he was the laughing stock of the teaching community. Now I danced with exalted joy for listening to the wise advice given by the best guidance councilor (the Holy Spirit).

Do you understand now children?

We have limited view of things. God has the WHOLE view of them.

Where are you going to go for advice? So let your first step ALWAYS be:

1) Wait. He who rushes in is a fool in a hurry for a disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

2) Pray: Think of praying as sharing a problem with your most trusted friend. Don’t be afraid. God loves you and wants you to pour out your heart to Him like a beautiful offering. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Psalms 16:7 3)

Meditate.

Now meditating does not mean sitting like a pretzel and contemplating your belly button lint. What it does mean is to read the word of God and to dink it in. Please do not try to gulp it down like a cheap beer. Rather take your time and sip it down like fine wine. Many times a verse will jump out at you. Write it down. Think about what it is saying. Pray for God to open your eyes to the awesome wisdom He is revealing to you.

Finally, with complete faith in God, take action. No worries, no regrets, just complete and total faith in our Holy God and His providence for us.

In the LORD I take refuge. Psalms 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullnessJohn 10:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I would like to close by saying: good luck.” But that would be stupid. It’s not luck, it’s Gods gift to you. Take it from an old fart. It really works. I am living proof.

Faith without action is no faith at all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with this recipe to avoid the schemes and scams of satans minions and to follow the true path of life that can only be given by He who is the God of truth. I praise You in the name of He who set the example of living a life of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah
