The Same Thing as A

A man who makes a vow to the Lord or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do. Numbers 30:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A pledge is the same thing as a contract.

A contract can be verbal as well as written.

It can be between friends, or family as well as an employer. When you make a pledge to do something or not do something you should work your hardest to fulfill that pledge to the letter.

Anything else is a lie and Jehovah detests liars. Jehovah takes your word seriously, so you better as well.

The Lord detests lying lips. Proverbs 12:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A man or woman is only as good as their word. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now if circumstances beyond your control happen and you cannot fulfill the pledge that is forgivable.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ) bless me with the wisdom of when to say yes and when to say no. Please bless me with the fortitude to let my word be law in my life. I deeply implore this of You in the name of He whose word is the supreme law, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

Leave It in His Hands.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Being independent is satans trick to get us to plunge ourselves into painful failures and distance ourselves from Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah

In my infancy in Jehovahs family it was exceedingly difficult to trust in Jehovah and leave it in His hands. It is inherent in the fleshly family to be fiercely independent, which of course leads to many unnecessary disasters and hard times. It took many years and suffering to finally surrender it all to Him.

Even now, even though I know this is the right thing to do , sometimes it takes great battles to surrender my will to His.

There is great battle, which the weapons of Christ is memorizing Bible verses and intense prayer. These are guaranteed to bring victory to the soul, mind and spirit of every Christian.

When You give your problem unto Jehovah, leave it in His hands. Trust Him that He will do what is right, not what you want.

There is no sense in asking Him for His advice if you insist on not waiting for Him but going out and doing what you think is right. That always leads to disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The other problem with depending upon yourself is that it lulls you into the false sense of security in your own intellect and physical prowess. This causes us to refuse to include Jehovah in our daily living. This only leads to catastrophe.

Self achievement brings a false sense of assurance that somehow we can live a pure life in our own ability. This attitude ultimately leads us to cut ourselves off from the heart of God and, in turn, to deny our true identity in Christ.” David Edwards

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending me The Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) to help guide me along the trail of life You have chosen for me to travel. May it always glorify Your name and help guide others along the path You have chosen for them to travel. I praise You in the name of He who obeyed You all the way to the path that lead to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day along the path He has chosen for you to walk with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Most Destructive Force on Earth.

 Anger is cruel, and wrath is like a flood, but jealousy is even more dangerous. Proverbs 27:4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have seen it plenty in my years and experienced it just as much.

The most destructive force on earth.

Its name is selfishness

The number one reason for most fights is selfishness.

It has ripped families apart, churches apart and friendships apart. It is the number one reason for most wars. Usually it starts out small but slowly becomes like a destructive avalanche.

The devil is smart, he knows how to put that spark of jealousy in our hearts. Slowly it becomes a destructive infernal which annihilates everything around it.

That is why we need the constant help of the Holy Spirit to keep our hearts humble and our relationships sincere loving and respectful.

Use the power of Light to destroy the power of darkness. Joseph a son of Jehovah

If a blowhard comes into our world we are to stay away from them. Yes, that means kicking them out of our lives and associations immediately or else they bring nothing but heartache and destruction with them.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for blessing me with Your divine power to keep my cool in the hottest of situations. I know that we need to nurture them ever more every day and by Your grace this will be accomplished. I praise You in the name of He who has the coolest head in the hottest times, 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

No Matter What The

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him. And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. The No matter what the situation leave it in Gods hands. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Are you concerned about not having enough money at the end of the month, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you stop wasting money in restaurants and start making your own coffee and start brown bagging it). When I was working I would make meals on my day off to last me the rest of the week. They were not all the same. You can get every creative with the Holy Spirit as your cooking guide as well. 

Are you concerned about a health issue, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you change your diet and start getting exercise). He did with me and boy do I ever feel much healthier.

Are you concerned about relationship problems, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you get rid of those who are nothing but problems and are users and abusers in your life which may be hard but is best for you).

I leave it in Gods hands. He loves me, He always wants what is best for me and will work it out for my best interest. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer:  Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) that as I trust in You, You always light the proper way to go in very aspect of my life. I praise You in the deepest gratitude in the name of the light of the world, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What Will Happen To

 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 conutit 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: Please Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) bless me with helping me discern the difference between those that need help and those that are parasites upon society. The one my heart dance with joy for the opportunity to help. The other is a waste of time, energy and resources. I humbly request this in the name of He who only gave salvation to those who were willing to become His servants and work for His kingdoms interest 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

For Our Loved Ones

 

Everyone tried to touch him, because healing power went out from him, and he healed everyone. Luke 6:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Oh Father, it is so frustrating to watch our elderly loved ones condemn themselves to constant injury because they are are stubborn and stupid (which is, may I add, selfish).

Now that they are old and their bodies frail their injuries are so much more serious when they commit these offences against their bodies. It causes untold pain and discomfort to them and makes my caring for them even more demanding.

Please send the Holy Spirit to sternly warn them to prevent these incidents from constantly recurring.

I know a certain woman that is forbidden from eating certain foods. Some of these she used to love to eat. When ever she attempts to eat one of them she is warned it will make her sick. She stubbornly refuses to listen. In no more than one minute after taking her first bite, she is puking her eye balls out.

Sadly I see incident like this with almost all seniors I have come in contact with- unless, they are living in seniors homes.

As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness. Proverbs 26:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Most seniors I have met are the most foolish folks I have ever encountered. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer Jeremiah 30:17 ) my Love, heal those in my care of their stubbornness and stupidity which only brings pain and grief to not only themselves but also to those who love them and are caring for them.

I humbly request this in the name of He who healed the impossible illnesses, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Please Pray For Me

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. James 1:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We have the neighbour from Hell. They rip up our flower gardens and plant their own flowers in it and say it is their property. They throw rubbish in our back yard and say it is their property. They yell and scream at me for bringing my friends into our back yard to show them my garden because the neighbour thinks I am showing them his pot and they are going to steal it. Then, the woman goes and teaches Bible school to children.

Anyone that moves the boundary stone is a double sinner. First they are liars claiming land that does not belong to them. Second they are thieves taking what they know does not belong to them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Don’t cheat your neighbor by moving the ancient boundary markers. Proverbs 22:28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Last year when I complained the county told me they could not intervene but could force me to remove the garbage or I would be fined.

The police said it was none of their business.

I talked with a lawyer and he said they were braking the law doing what they did and to film everything.

I just paid a lot of money to have our property surveyed and can now prove their garbage is on our property. I informed them that I have installed camera’s and am carrying one with me to film them if they start yelling and screaming at me again.

Please pray for wisdom in how best to get them to remove the garbage.

I live in Southern Ontario if anybody reading this has any legal suggestions.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) help me with wisdom in the proper manner in which to respond to this violation of our property that will result in justice being done to the violator and peace between the offender and us. I humbly ask this in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with peace of heart and peace with your neighbour. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Thank you.

There are Fabulous Times When

 There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 The Holy Bible, The New Living Standard Jesus is my best friend.

I can always share my concerns, hurts, frustration and joys with Jesus.

Because He has walked among us He understands.

Because He loves us, He only desires what is best for us.

Therefore there is none more qualified to help us and rejoice with us.

Jesus loves you. Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Jesus has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you. ”Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Standard

Now friendship is more than just to be a crying towel.

There are fabulous times when we just commune together in His magnificent cathedral (it is called nature). I really cherish those times.

“There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every person and it can never be filled by any created thing. It can only be filled by God, made known through Jesus Christ.” Blaise Pascal

PRAYER: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me with the most awesome friendship with the most special friend there could ever be. In the deepest gratitude I thank you Jesus, my best friend. 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

You can Make

 You can make many plans,   but the Lords purpose will prevail. Proverbs 19:21 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

Boy do I know this to be true.

In my early twenties I planned on living in a log cabin by a spring fed spring with great trout fishing in central Ontario on two acres of forested land. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

When doing medical missionary work in the Baja Mexico I met a Mexican woman and we fell in love. We intended upon getting married and buying a small house in the little town we were living in. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

While attending a Chinese church while doing missionary work (even though I was teaching English I was also teaching about Jesus to my students) I met a wonderful Christian Chinese woman. We fell in love. I intended upon becoming a landed immigrant and we were going to get married and buy an apartment (they do not have houses but apartments for the most part in China). Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day. The same thing happened in two different cites I taught at.

Each of these events ripped my heart apart as my dreams vanished like waking from a dream. I felt crushed and as if my life was over. I was angry at Jehovah for allowing this.

Now, in my elder years, I can see His plans for me were very different than mine were.

Yes I still love those women and have fond memories of those times but am grateful for Jehovah for the plans He had for me. I firmly believe I shall meet those women I loved so dearly in Heavens home. If those events had of come to fruition I would never have served Him in the capacity He had intended and accomplished the tasks He had prepared for me to accomplish for Him. Because of this many would not have come to Jesus. I am grateful for this blessing He gave me through my obedience to Him.

We make our plans but Jehovah guides the way (even if it is in the opposite direction then we intend to go). Joseph a son of Jehovah

PATH

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide for always providing providence in my life to humble, loyally serve You. This is the greatest of honours of all. I thank you in the name of my Heavenly King which is my greatest delight to serve, 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
