Does Not Prosper.

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. Proverbs 28:23 New International Version

In my decades on this earth one thing I have noticed is the numerous times there are people who attempt at a business or other ventures and constantly fall flat on their faces.

Then there are the ones that succeed for a while but then everything comes crashing down on them.

 

One thing they all have in common are they are snakes in the grass I would not trust them with a nickel. They are liars, cheats, schemers, thieves connivers, deceivers and smooth talkers.

The other types are the ones who mess up and swallow their pride and repent, many times publicly, and they get back on their feet. They may not be a success in the worlds eyes but they are in the Christians because they have peace and contentment in their lives that can only come from Jehovahs forgiving grace. They usually are not materially wealthy but are the type who have integrity and peace in their lives.

They may still have to pay for their deeds like broken relationships or doing time for committing a crime but they have peace and contentment from repentance.

I once met a fellow who was an assassin for the Irish Republican Army who repented in prison and became a fiery preacher. He oozed of peace and contentment that was only possible from repenting of his ways but he still lived every day with what he did when he was the assassin. He could never return to his country and will never see his family again.

I have personally found that when I messed up but got my back up and refused to repent there was nothing but trouble in my life. When I repented the peace, love, joy and contentment that comes from Jehovahs grace seeped back into my daily life.

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH-Ropheka (The Lord Who Heals) for blessing me with Your awesome grace and mercy to wash away the pungent infection that sin brings into my life when I humbly and sincerely repent unto You and those I have committed offense unto. I appreciate this both physical and spiritual kindness and thank you in the name of He whose precious blood made it possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

We Are a Stiff-Necked People.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

 

“If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your inheritance.” Exodus 34:9 New King James Version                                                                                                                                               

Stiff necked:  having or showing the insulting attitude of people who think that they are better, smarter, or more important than other people, refusing to change your ideas or to stop doing something, difficult to deal with.  Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

Common, admit it, you are stiff necked too. We all are.                                  

I used to be very stiff necked at times.  And then, I was blessed with the cure.

                                                             

His name is: The Holy Spirit.                                                                             

Many times He convicted me that I was being stiff necked and I admitted it. When I tried on my own to conquer the thing I was stiff necked in I failed. Finally in desperation I cried out in desperation:”My God, I cannot conquer this thing!” It was then that the power of the Holy Spirit helped me conquer it. Notice He did not conquer it but rather He HELPED me conquer it. We cannot sit on our laurels and expect Him to do all the work. We must put forward and effort and work with Him to conquer it.                                                                                                                 

Now sometimes He will conquer it on His own like an addiction.                    

It was only by His power that He freed me from alcoholism. I was a biological alcoholic and no matter what I tried to conquer the drinking problem I fell flat on my face. It was only when I totally surrendered to Him that he blessed me with smashing the chains that help me in a living Hell and was dragging me into a permanent one.                                                               

It is also why we need to read our Bibles, talk with Jehovah and be obedient unto Him. Otherwise we will fall back into the destructive habits.                                                                                                           

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for delivering me from the destructive habits that were making my life a living Hell and slowly dragging me into a permanent one. Thank you for working with me to conquer those habits which You find disgusting. Thank you for pricking my conscience when I begin to fall back into some of my old destructive ways. I thank you in the name of the greatest Deliverer Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Stubbornness Is Stupidness.

OBEDIANCE

“A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance.” Proverbs 28:13

One thing I have learned is that stubbornness and stupidness goes hand in hand.

These people are very seldom successful in life because they refuse to listen and refuse to admit they are wrong. Oh yes we may see successful people who are rich today, but in the end they lose it all because they refuse to accept listening to others. They believe they are the smartest while being the stupidest.

 

I have seen many people continue to make the same stupid mistakes over and over again. I have to wonder what planet they are from.

For example I have tried to explain to some people to eat before going shopping, try to figure out how much they need to spend and take just a little bit more just in case. Then I see them going to the store hungry, buying a lot of junk food and going way over budget and then cry because they are short money at the end of the month.

On the other hand I have seen humble people who are willing to listen, apologize when they make mistakes and master a skill very quickly.

Personally I find the best way to learn is to make a lot of mistakes because then you learn how to become better by learning to fix the mistakes.                                                                 

There is no middle ground with Jehovah. Obedience brings blessings while disobedience brings curses. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                  

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me an obedient heart such as was and is in Your loving son Jesus. I sincerely ask this in His obedient name. Amen.                                                                                                                          

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Are You a Chaser?

HARD WORK

Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense Proverbs 12:11 New International Version

Do you spend money on winning the big on instead of using it to buy groceries?

Do you fall for what in my opinion are scams by investment companies with their get rich schemes?

Do you buy books on how to get rich quick?

The only ones I have ever seen get rich are the ones scamming gullible people out of their money. And today there are even more with the internet.

I am constantly amazed at how greedy people are, and really is that not why they fall for these scams?

 

I do not really know what to invest in as every time, (through no fault of my own, I was wiped out because of injuries and no money the investments had to be cashed in where as I was nailed with a lot of fees which took half my investment).

I have learned one thing though and that is when we walk the Christian walk Jehovah will always provide for us.

“The tragedy of life and of the world is not that men do not know God; the tragedy is that, knowing Him, they still insist on going their own way.” William Barclay

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God will provide) for promising and delivering on Your promise to always provide for Your beloved obedient child. I praise You in the name of He who provided food for the five thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.
