Bless Me to Enable Me To

But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. Luke 6:27-28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Are you willing to?

It is our natural inclination to close our ears to words we do not wish to listen to.

Are you willing to suppress that and listen to The Holy Spirits voice as He convicts you?

It is our natural inclination to hate our enemies and make them suffer as much as we can.

Are you willing to love them?

That is not the mushy nonsense you see in movies or on TV.

It is an effort that can only be accomplished by surrendering to the power of The Holy Spirit. It does not mean that you condone nor tolerate abusive behaviour. If you love them you will help them to understand why they are abusive ( many times it is because of abuse they have suffered and have not been healed of ) and help them get counselling. If you love them you will not empower them by allowing this behaviour to continue but will allow them to suffer the consequences of their actions.

Purge yourself of toxic folks less their poison kills your love and you are rewarded with nothing but misery in return. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

When others hate us it is natural to hate them back.

Are you willing to love your enemies by understanding why they hate you and seek reconciliation in the relationship. If they refuse are you willing to love them enough to behave in a respectful manner towards them. Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbours, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.” — G. K. Chesterton Prayer:

Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to enable me to conduct myself towards difficult folks in the noble manner in which Your gracious son Jesus Christ did. I wish not just for peace in this relationship but to use this situation to glorify You and to bring the little lost sheep into Your Heavenly fold. Please bless me with the strength and healing of ostracizing myself from toxic folks until they accept that their behaviour is not loving nor acceptable.

It is in the name of He who exemplified Christian behaviour towards others, Jesus Christ, that I humbly beseech You. Amen

May you always be receptive to and obedient to The Holy Spirits guidance in all of your relationships. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Has Gone Through Suffering and Testing

Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Many folks feel it is senseless to come to Christ with our worries, hurts and problems because He is the big god in Heaven and does not care about mere mortals.

Yes He does.

There is not one crisis that you encounter that Christ has not been through.

He experienced the death of a good friend, was betrayed by another. He experienced homelessness and hunger. He was rejected by loved ones and was hated by the politically correct, even though He was trying to help them. He helped so many yet so few thanked Him. Even then, it was outsiders that thanked Him and not those in His national family ( the Jews ) . And of course, let us not forget the temptation in the wilderness when He was weak, hungry and exhausted.

No matter the situation, Jesus has been there, Jesus cares and when you depend upon Him, He will guide you through them all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: It is with the greatest gratitude that I thank you Jesus Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) that You have suffered like we do and so much more. Because of this, who better to run to when lifes tragedies come crashing down upon us.

Thank You.

Thank you for always being there.

Thank you for Your gentle, soft reassurance during these difficult times.

Thank you for Your encouragement, strength and guidance in resolving these catastrophes.

It is in Your magnificent loving name I exalt You. Amen May you always run to the loving arms of Christ when calamity comes a crashing through your door. Joseph a son of Jehovah T

Are Very Arrogant

A righteous man hates lies, But a wicked man is loathsome, and he acts shamefully. Proverbs 13:5 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Have you ever wondered why you hate it when you hear someone tell lies (even if they seem harmless) ?

It is because we imitate that which we love.

So, just as Jehovah hates lies and liars so too do we.

Loathsome is described as causing feelings of loathing; disgusting; revolting; repulsive.

Personally speaking, I find liars and braggarts to be particularly disgusting and repulsive. I have to run from them before I either explode or feel strongly sick to my stomach.

I believe that is exactly how Jehovah feels and a quick reference in your Bible will prove it. When they are a family member, it makes me want to cry seeing them walk the path of ultimate destruction and knowing they are too full of themselves to listen.

Again, I know that, that is exactly how Jehovah feels from reading and understanding the Bible.

Liars are very arrogant and believe they are gods in their own eyes. Many times they look down on others and feel no shame in lying to get what they desire at someones elses expense.

Eventually, Jehovah has enough of them and then allows them to reap what they sow. It is a terrible thing to witness and rips the heart apart even though we know they deserve what they are getting.

Stay away from them, they only bring heartache, pain and disaster. They are truly the devils children.

Hell is full of the arrogant. Heaven is full of the humble. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) to teach me Your irrefutable truth. Thank you for opening my eyes to the destructive life of liars and to avoid interacting with them less they entice me to follow their footsteps to Hell. I thank you in the name of He who not only spoke nothing but the truth but lived it as well, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the God of truth protect you from the lying vipers that slither through out this land and guide you to not become one of them.

Will be on Them.

 Those who keep on doing good and are looking for His greatness and honor will receive life that lasts forever. Those who love only themselves and do not obey the truth, but do what is wrong, will be punished by God. His anger will be on them. Every Jew and every person who is not a Jew who sins will suffer and have great sorrow. Romans 2:7-9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

BURN LIKE THE SUN

There are those out there that teach that because Jesus is love we can do what ever we desire with no consequences. Because Jesus is loving there can be no Hell. Those that believe this are living in a fools world. I believe we all know there is a Heaven and a Hell but many use this mantra to deceive themselves.

Could it be any more blunt than this passage in the Bible?

Yes, there are always consequences for our actions both here on earth and in eternity. The wise are loving towards others and receive a great reward.

The foolish only love themselves and receive great damnation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank You my Beloved Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses) for blessing me with Your amazing graciousness for the service I provide for You. Thank You my Beloved for the numerous opportunities to serve You in the community around me. Thank you my Beloved that You with hold Your blessings from the stingy and selfish. I exalt You in the name of my Beloved big brother with whom I deeply desire to emulate in doing good and sharing, 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

Dancing with the Devil.

 For He will command His angels in regard to you, To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. Psalms 91:11 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

The angels are here to protect you in your service unto our Heavenly King Jesus.

If you have no desire to serve Him, what right do you think you will have to receive His angelic protection?

Or worse yet, if you participate in dangerous activity like sky diving or doing drugs or committing crimes, what right do you expect angels to protect you from their consequences?

You cannot expect the angels to protect you if you are dancing with the devil. Joseph a son of Jehovah

furnace of hell

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) please bless me to be my guiding light though every waking moment of this life.                                                                                                        When satans temptation of doing anything stupid and dangerous looks like fun please shine Your light of truth upon this wicked deception to prevent me committing injury to myself and or to nay near me.           I sincerely request this in the name of He who never fell for any of satans scams during His temptation trials in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                          Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year.

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

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

Is Worse Than No.

So if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and while there you remember that your brother has something [such as a grievance or legitimate complaint] against you, leave your offering there at the altar and go. First make peace with your brother, and then come and present your offering. Matthew 5:23-24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Never ruin an apology with an excuse.”Benjamin Franklin

I have encountered too many that are too immature to apologize for their wrong and or are doing so to save face. They always make up excuses to deflect responsibility for their wrong doing. Most times during their wicked schemes they use the excuse to deflect the blame from themselves and try to make you feel as if you are the guilty party.

An excuse is a skin of a reason wrapped up in a lie. A. W. Tozer

They are not remorseful and will commit the same offense the very first opportunity they get.

A false apology is worse than no apology at all. Joseph- Anthony: Green

They arrogantly lamebrainly laugh believing they have gotten away with their dippy apology. It always comes back to haunt them though.

I can think of one knucklehead that tried this with me. The thing is though is that it repeatedly comes back to bite him and each time the bite digs deeper into his wicked heart. It drives him insane. I asked him to help me once and he gave an excuse with his apology for not helping me. Now, whenever he needs my help, I remind him of his excuse and use it as a reason for not helping him. Whereas he laughed and bragged to others that he made a fool out of me now it is he that is made to look the fool and everybody laughs at him. I do not do this for revenge but as a defense against his wicked schemes. He is the type that always wants something from you but is never willing to help when you need it.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Magen ( The Lord my Shield ) bless me with being a shield against the wicked perverted ones that foolishly attempt to con and manipulate with their disgusting lies. Guide me to use Your words to mortally wound them in defense so that they will howl and scour away. I sincerely request this in the name of He who saw through all the phonies and dealt with them appropriately Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered Jesus Christ . Amen

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