Shouts in the Street.

THE FIRES OF HELL
She raises her voice in the markets;
She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather];
At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:
“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded 
and undiscerning?
How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,
How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?
“If you will turn 
and pay attention to my rebuke,
Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
“Because I called and you refused [to answer],
I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer];
And you treated all my counsel as nothing
And would not accept my reprimand,
I also will laugh at your disaster;
I will mock when your dread 
and panic come,
When your dread 
and panic come like a storm,
And your disaster comes like a whirlwind,
When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].
“Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer;
They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me,
Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the 
Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel,
And they spurned all my rebuke.
“Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way
And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.
“For the turning away of the naive will kill them,
And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them. (Unfortunately I have seen too much of this even in today’s society, especially amongst the liberals, homosexuals and so called intellectuals).
“But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely 
and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.”  (I have seen this and am living this today. It is a great comfort and instills great peace of the heart). Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with Your indisputable truth. It has enlightened me to a life free from the darkness around me and the gift of walking in Your righteous light all the way to Heaven. I praise You in the name of the light of the world 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.

Prayers for Caregivers-A Prayer for Patience

GODS HELP

 May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Romans 15:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

My Beloved, I humbly beseech You to bless me this day with abundance of patience. This days calling upon my body, mind and spirit are great.

Patience is a virtue which only You can pour out upon me as rain is pour out upon the parched land. No matter the difficult task nor the wearing of my patience by those in my care please bless me with Your Divine patience.

The load placed upon the caregivers shoulder is heavy and demanding. It can only be accomplished by Your Divine patience.

I believe You will bless me all that is required to excel at these demanding tasks this day, but especially with patience.

May I be as patient with those in my care this day as You are with me every day.

I humbly beseech You and thank You for granting my petition in the name of He who excelled in patience with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

Warn Those Who Are

BEING TORN DOWN SPIRITUALLY

 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 The Holy Bible New International Version

Notice it does not say to support the lazy trouble makers?

I see so many good hearted but wrong minded support the lazy drunks and drug addicts and welfare bums that foolishly believe we owe them a free ride.

That is wrong.

You are not helping them but hurting them by encouraging them to continue on in a destructive lifestyle for both themselves and for society (because many commit crimes to support their habit which hurts innocent folks).

There is an old saying that idle hands are the devils playground. Do you notice that drug addicts are also habitual criminals? Perhaps doing time in a third world prison would do them more good than holding their hand and encouraging this lifestyle because there is no repercussions for their actions.

They are to be warned that their lifestyle is wrong. If they choose to continue on then do so on their own and face harsh consequences for their actions.

Our financial, mental and spiritual efforts are to go to help those who are willing to put forward an effort to help themselves.

To support lazy bums and drunks and drug addicts is a sin because it is a waste of our resources which should go to help those who are prepared to help themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) bless me with providing me with guidance to those who are in need and with the wisdom to differentiate between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. I humbly request this in the name of He who provided only to those who put forward and effort to help themselves Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

It is Indeed the Coldest and Darkest

GODS ASSURANCE

 

Just Before. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. Matthew 14:25 The Holy Bible New International Version

Being an avid outdoors man all my life I can certainly attest to the fact that it is indeed the coldest and darkest just before dawn.

From decades of experience it seems to me like Jesus always comes to us in our trials and tribulations, sorrows and danger when it is its most intense.

I think the reason for that is most of us chose to face our giants alone being independent.

It is only as they get progressively worse and all else fails that we go to Christ.

One of the benefits of this is our great and deep appreciation for His rescue.

Unfortunately for us the lesson of depending upon Him for salvation must be repeated numerous times before we accept the fact that it is unto Christ that we must always go whenever any trouble comes our way.

Finally learning that lesson and going to Christ first has prevented my storms from becoming full blown destructive typhoons.

Just remember Jesus has been there, Jesus cares. He is always willing to help but we must first call out to Him and then obey His instruction for us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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, New Living Translation

Jesus’ love is the bright healing light that evaporates that darkness of sorrow, worry, pain, loneliness and fear. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with being the beacon of love, strength and assurance during my darkest hours. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Is Your Head Hurting?

RESTLESS HEART

 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you restless and disturbed within me?
Hope in God
and wait expectantly for Him. Psalm 42:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Despair is the state of being discouraged.

Is your head hurting from walking into walls ? You know the feeling , like no matter what you try it is like walking into a wall. You are pounding the pavement looking for employment yet it seems as if every door is closed. You have tried all kinds of different medical treatment yet your ailment is getting worse. Of course there is the wonderful experience of raising teenagers and they refuse to listen to you ( that has been going on for eons. ) .

The list could continue for a long time couldn’t it ?

To hope for something is to believe in the future occurrence of (something).

We are children of the Supreme God , children. Take hope that He loves you and because He loves you He will come to your aid in Him time in His way. His answer may not be what you desire however He is far more wiser than you. As a consequence He knows what is best for you far better that you do.

I know, there have been many times when I desired something in my life and passionately prayed for our Beloveds blessing to have it come to fruition. He did not. At the time I was bitterly disappointed. In reflection I see the wise providence of His hand that if He had of granted me my desire it would have been a disaster.

On the other hand there have been event that I fervently prayed for every day for decades. Finally He blessed me that they blossomed into reality. Again I understand why it took Him so long to grant my request and am joyously grateful for His blessings.

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your Divine abundant assistance throughout my life. I thank you that You refused some requests that would have led to certain disaster and for answering those that bring about joyous events that will glorify You. I exuberantly praise You in the name He whose sacrifice answered my call for salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

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