I Like to Do It Incognito

 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:1-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

The other day while walking down the hallway after visiting a friend in the hospital I noticed little plaques on the wall with names of folks who donated to the hospital. The bigger the donation, the bigger the plaque.

It was the same in a church I recently dropped off clothing to give to others for free. I could not help but think that although these were generous gifts they were given out of excess and were given to puff up the ego of the giver.

How many of the parishioners gave out of their meager wages denying themselves for the good of the church or hospital?

To me, these are the real generous givers.

It is the same when I watch folks running for a cause like cancer.

How many of them are running with selfie sticks?

Are they running for the cause of a cure for cancer or for the cause of puffing up themselves?

When I give, I like to do it incognito, because of the disdain for being applauded for it in public. Instead I always give thanks to Jehovah for the idea to give to that specif cause and for the opportunity to do so with great joy.

Give but give with the object of giving glory to Jehovah not to self. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for guiding where to give and how much to give to those who You deem worthy. Doing so creates a heart that beats with ecstatic joy in helping while giving glory to You magnificent name.                                       I praise You in the name of He who gave the ultimate sacrifice for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

No Matter the Enemy.

The Lord your God is with you, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He will have much joy over you. With His love He will give you new life. He will have joy over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST SHOWS HIS STRENGTH

No matter the enemy you are doing battle with, the unconquerable Trio is right there in the thick of it with you.

They are of course: Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Do not think this is a one battle event.

There are addiction battles, health battles, bad disposition battle and relationship battle. These occur over the course of a lifetime.

Some battles are short, some last for decades (I can think of one in my life that took over forty years before our Loves finally annihilated it ).

Some battles will never be won until we reach Heavens Gate.

Some battles we must be submissive to our Holy Kings to fight along side of them for victory to be won.

Some battles we must step back and surrender them to the Heavenly Trio to destroy.

Through them all Jehovah the Refiner is burning off the filth in us and making us the pure children of love He intended for us to be. After each burning off of the dross (eliminating the filth in us) Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the angels in Heaven  dance for joy at seeing us become more refined than the finest gold.

We are constantly being remoulded into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with Your victorious battle skills that You have taught me to use to win battles, for sharing You awesome battle strategies with me so that we win the battle together and for blessing me with the skills, knowledge and You magnificent encouragement to egg me on to victory. I bless You in the name of He who won the greatest battle of all, that over death, 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

 Do Not Act Like

Do not act like the sinful people of the world. Let God change your life. First of all, let Him give you a new mind. Then you will know what God wants you to do. And the things you do will be good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I remember when a young man they used to have movie critics that would rate whether movies were good or bad. From my experience when I listened to them and paid good money to watch the film, it was a horrible film. The films they panned were the ones I enjoyed watching.

I remember talking with work mates about new series that came out on TV. Even though they did not like the shows they watched them because they wanted to be with the in crowd.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

However, I consider them to be cattle just being led by the puppets of big business and foolishly wasting their money to stay cool all the while becoming slaves to the bank by going deeply in debt. None of them look to happy to me.

Now, following the advice Jehovah has blessed me with in the Bible has brought me a lot of wisdom, peace, comfort, strength, integrity and joy. Many believe I am weird for living the Christian lifestyle.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

I listen to Jesus rather than man because He only wants what is best for me and has the knowledge to guide me on how to attain it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge. Romans 11:33) for blessing me with Your supreme knowledge for every aspect of my life. You have prevented a lot of tragedy in my life as well as have blessed me with living a meaningful life. I thank You in the name of the best Guidance Councillor 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

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

Fills Me Up With

Oh Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) I am exhausted and feel as if this race will never end. It feels as if it has been going on forever and I cannot out run the pain and exhaustion which encompasses every molecule of my life.

Help me to stop trying to out run my pain but rather run the race You have set before me with strength, endurance and gusto.

I have confidence that when I am empty, the Holy Spirit fills me up with high octane super Divine power to be victorious in this race.

I know that this difficulty will not separate us but rather bring us ever closer together.

Thank you for blessing me this day with Your Supreme strength, endurance and joy to continue on with gusto.

I know when I am down, You pick me up, brush me off and cheer me on to victory.

I look forward to the victory crown which my Beloved King shall place upon my head as I cross the finish line at the Gates of Heaven.

I thank you in the name of my most glorious King in which I am honored to run the race He has set before me, Jesus Christ. Amen

DIVINE STRENGTH

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

Another Word For

So I gave them up to the stubbornness of their heart, To walk in [the path of] their own counsel. Psalms 81:12 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version 

Stubbornness is another word for selfishness.

laugh at fools

Stubbornness is refusing to listen to others because they are telling you something you do not want to hear.

So a doctor informs a diabetic they cannot drink soda pop any more. The diabetic tells the doctor to stuff it, continues on drinking soda pop. One day his body cannot take the abuse any longer and goes into diabetic shock. Then because they are selfish (which is what immaturity is as well) instead of accepting responsibility for their actions, they blame the doctor.

Believe me, I have seen a lot of it.

When Jehovah tells us to stop doing this or to start doing that, it is for our own good, not because He is some cold hearted tyrant. Because He has given us free will, it is up to us to choose to obey or disobey. We disobey at our own peril.

To disobey Jehovahs guidance only leads to self destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rophe (Exodus 15:26 The LORD (our) Healer) always help me have a submissive heart to listen, understand and obey you in every aspect of my life. I know this leads to spiritual, physical and mental health and healing. I sincerely request this 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

Nothing is too Hard for Him.

 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Oh my awesome majestic King, You constantly amaze me with Your supreme prowess.

There have been countless situations where I am at wits end and know not where to turn nor what to do in oh so many difficult circumstances in my service unto You.

Then, I upon my knees, with rivers of tears streaming down my weary cheeks in desperation I call out to You for Your gracious Divine providence.

Then, You compassionately softly answer my prayer, You extinguish the searing sun of frustration boiling in my brain. You either take control of the situation and bring about solutions to these contentious issues or situations or, You guide me on how to resolve them myself. Sometimes, You help me with the resolution or sometimes You have trust in my competency and allow me to resolve them myself when You have kindly supplied me with the wisdom and tools needed for victory.

No matter which method You use my Love, I know Your gentle but firm hand extinguishes the scorching flames with in my mind and replaces them with soft gentle assurance that the situation is under Your control and because You love me, it will always work out for my good.

I thank You in the name of He who always took good care of those under His care (His disciples), Jesus Christ. Amen

THE LORD WILL ANSWER

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah
