Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL

Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Why not give this a try: Say thank you to the stock boys and girls as well as the cashiers at stores. They work hard for little money and receive little gratitude for their hard work.

Give your doctor and thank you card and a home made gift in appreciation for all their hard work. Think about it, they put in long hours and listen to nothing but complaining all day long. That is depressing.

Why not shake a cops hand and thank them for their difficult job. They get crapped on for doing their job and crapped on for not intervening when they cannot.

How about adding pastors, choirs masters, teachers to the list. And you know what?

In doing so, you will find you have a much happier life and mentality.

A grateful life is a joyous life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh, and do not forget to say thank you to our Heavenly Poppa when He blesses you. As well, begin and end your day with saying thank you to Him for all the blessing great and small and see how good of a nights sleep you get.

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) enable my heart to be gracious and grateful to all those I encounter this day so as to emulate You and be an encourager. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest encourager of all, 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 to be shared with others.

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Believe It or Not There Are

 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Believe it or not there are folks that live as if they believe they are sinless.

Whenever the do something wrong they quickly make up excuses for why A: that it not what really happened,

B: it was not their fault or

C: it is okay because everyone else is doing it.

Trying to convince them of their wrong doing is exhaustive.

I have found the best last response to these lies is :

“You may lie to me and if you repeat the lie enough, even convince yourself, but you cannot con Jesus.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

and then walk away.

It shocks even the so called “unbelievers”.

Many times we commit sins without even knowing it. That is why we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits guidance and quickly repent of the sin before its roots grow too deep. Then, it is a real battle to conquer them. With the help of the Holy Spirit this can be accomplished.

Pull out your sins when they first occur to prevent them from taking root unless you want a real battle on your hands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent ( which means we are to admit what we did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness, stop committing the sin and make restitution for the offence committed- so if we sold something from someone we are to give it back), Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies Me) bless me with the Holy Spirits help to convict me when I grieve You and the help me repent so as to remain a child of Your with whom You are well pleased. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose blood brought me redemption Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you 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.

Which Book Are You Showing?

the devious reward

 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

Me First Puts You Last.

SATANS TRAP

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

I Believe Jesus Knew

WITNESS FOR ME

As Jesus went with him, he was surrounded by the crowds. A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding,[b] and she could find no cure.  Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped. “Who touched me?”Jesus asked. Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.” But Jesus said,“Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.”When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees in front of him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed.“Daughter,” he said to her,“your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” Luke 8:42-48 The New Living Translation.

I believe Jesus knew who touched her and why.

So, why did He ask who touched Him?

I believe it was to reveal to everyone that it was because of her faith that she was healed. It was to be a good example to those around Him that He has the power to heal and that we must believe in Him to receive this gift.

It took great faith in Jesus that He would not be angry with her for touching Him when she was unclean. When a woman was on her period she was considered unclean and was not to have contact with a man in any way. To admit she touched Him would have brought her great shame and condemnation. She did not care, she threw herself at Jesus with gratitude and trust in His love and compassion.

So too it is to be with us. Now Jesus may or may not heal your physical ailment but He most certainly will heal your mental and spiritual ones. Not only must we have faith in His loving healing touch, even if it brings a lot of mockery and condemnation from society we must also proclaim His healing to the sick world and risk suffering the same mockery and condemnation again. That is okay because Jesus’ love and healing is of far more value than society’s approval. Especially since society’s approval is very fickle while Christ love is sold and never changing. 

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka :(God our healer) for blessing me with Your awesome mental and spiritual healing only You could have healed me from.                                Thank you for the numerous opportunities to share these blessing with others in the hope that they will trust You to heal them as well.                                                                                           I praise You in the name of the best Doctor there is Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What Will Happen To

exquisite pink rose being gently caressed by raindrops

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 The 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 The 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 13:16The  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 Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with the knowledge of discernment on how to share with those in need and not those who are lazy and ungrateful. I sincerely request this in the name of the wisest of all 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

Like Polluting a Fountain

do not allow them to control you

If the godly give in to the wicked, it’s like polluting a fountain or muddying a spring. Proverbs 25:26 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation               

This means that if a righteous man surrenders their principal to the wicked the words of their mouth is like a spring that has been muddied by someone walking through it.

Just as the water is undrinkable so too are the words of the righteous who has surrendered his Godly principals to the wicked.

Anyone who has walked through a forest on a hot day and becomes thirsty can tell you how frustrating it is because some idiot chose to walk through the stream upstream making it undrinkable for everyone else. I sure can.

So too are the words of the compromised righteous mans words disgusting to those around them.

To surrender your morals to the wicked is to pee in the stream of Gods word. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with a strong back bone to not surrender to the wicked and for sending the Holy Spirit to help me in my times of weakness so I do not compromise Your Holy standards for my life. I praise You in the name of He who is the most righteous Jesus Christ. Amen

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

To Even Equal

GODS DELIGHTS

The world has nothing to offer to even equal much less surpass Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have worked for many that no matter how hard I worked our how great the job was when completed they could would and did always find something to complain about.

There were good employers as well but even then even though their praise and satisfaction was it always seemed as if there was something missing.

Society is a cruel slave master, I prefer Jesus as my King. He is much more loving and appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have worked for Christ and even when it is a minor accomplishment there was a sense of accomplishment that pleased my Heavenly King. It wasn’t inflating my ego, just a well done good and faithful servant feeling. It surpassed any accolades any employer gave me.

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Obedience is an act of faith. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Matthew 25:23 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 for blessing me with assigning me duties to accomplish that has eternal gratitude and well as receiving Your accolades here and now. This blesses me with meaning in my life. I exalt You in Your majestic name. 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

When We Run Into Problems

tested in afflictionWe can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. Romans 5:3-5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I do not know about you but I do not exactly dance for joy and sing praises unto Jehovah whenever problems and troubles come into my life.

At first I used to ask why it was happening to me like a whining little child (come on we all do ).

Then I would be asking what the Holy Spirit was trying to teach me through these events.

Now, I understand that even though bad things happen to good folks for no reason every problem and trouble can be used to fortify some part of our character (which most time either I though I was strong in them or did not realize how weak I was in them).

Jehovah has a purpose for every problem. He uses them to mature your character and to develop Your relationship with Him ever stronger. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength ) Psalm 19:14 for blessing me with problems and troubles to help strengthen my character to become ever more of the holy child You desire me to be. I exalt You in the name of my strongest savior Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah Photo and article @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2019
