That is Not Friendship

                                                            

The man of too many friends [chosen indiscriminately] will be broken in pieces and come to ruin,
But there is a [true, loving] friend who [is reliable and] sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You see it a lot with professional sports (particularly basketball) and in music. Many of these so called super stars are surrounded with cling ons. These are parasites that cling on to you and suck everything they can out of you (in this case it is money). They constantly flatter the suckers and tell them how great they are. When their career is over most are bankrupt and on welfare. They go to the cling ons for help but are laughed at and rejected. The cling ons just move to another filled with vanity.

This is even more true with in families.

“Let him not trust in vanity (emptiness, futility) and be led astray; For emptiness will be his reward [for such living]. Job 15:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When someone is your friend only because they want something from you, that is not friendship, that is abuse. Joseph: Anthony- Green

On the other hand there is the wise who take their time, pray for Jehovah’s guidance and He directs them to others who are true friends. We are always there for each other. You need help around the house and they find out about it, you need not call them because they are a knockn on your door ready to help.

And the same applies to them. I do not wait for the call, I go right over with tools in hand.

You are having problems in your life, they see it and are always there (and discreet, they will not gossip about it with anyone because that is betrayal of the worse kind). Right back at them.

I love to go for walks with someone who is a true friend in the bush or by a quiet stream and we talk about our problems with each other.

And of course, every good Christian knows that Jesus is their bestest friend right?

Jesus is always there, Jesus always cares, Jesus always loves you. He is the best friend you will ever need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for the supreme privilege of being a friend of Yours, Jesus’ and the Holy Spirit’s. It is my most revered blessing in life. I am grateful to You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. 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

They are Charlatans.

                                                         

He replied,“Rightly did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders), as it is written [in Scripture], ‘These people honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. Mark 7:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is why the once saved always saved is a lie.

Yes some profess to be baptized and be followers of Christ.

The problem is that they refuse to follow Him in their every day life. They refuse to worship Him, they refuse to thank Him, they refuse to talk with Him (in prayer- except when they want something from Him) and when He speaks with them, they refuse to listen, understand and obey. In short they are charlatans.

Charlatans: one making usually showy pretenses to knowledge or ability fraudfaker Charlatans put on masks in a charade or in a play.

Too many folks put on the outward mask of Christ while the inward heart belongs to satan. They play at being Christian with going to church, going to Bible studies maybe even reading the Bible but they do not walk the walk. They are make believe Christians just as the charlatans are playing the part in a play. If they foolishly believe they are saved they are in for a rude awakening on Judgement Day.

“The man who is not sanctified to the extent of obeying God rather than Satan has not been justified either, making it an obvious fact that he is never saved without either.”  Burton Coffman

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for favoring me with Your excellent truth to enlighten me to the charlatans that play act devotion unto You. In this regard You direct me away from these phonies less they spread this unholy disease unto me. I salute You in the name of He who exposed the phonies while walking amongst us Jesus Christ. 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

The Greatest of Virtues

                                                        

For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced (beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The greatest of blessings is to be loved by He who cares about us and for us like no one else can or will. He is always there. He always cares. He always blesses us with the best guidance. He blesses us with daily spiritual, mental and physical blessings. And best of all there is no experience like that of being in communion with His loving presence. Romans 8:38-39The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no love that can compare to Jehovahs Divine love for us. It is truly a Heavenly treasure of which we are to be grateful for in our daily lives and will continuously praise Him for in His Heavenly home. It is my spiritual breath. I cannot go a day without praising Him with whom loves me untold more than I could ever reciprocate. He is truly awesome.

And Jesus replied to him,“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is nothing or no one worthy of equaling much less surpassing Jehovahs place in my heart.

As Christ is our King that makes us He free will servants.

I can find no vocation equal to worth nor value as that of serving my Heavenly King in whom I am so deeply in love with.

There is nothing more worthy of my time that contemplating Jehovah by reading books, listening to the old hymns, writing articles to assist others in there walk with Him and creating engaging photo’s to glorify Him.

“To love God is the greatest of virtues; to be loved by God is the greatest of blessings.” Portuguese Proverb

Virtue is described as a commendable quality or trait Is there anything more commendable than loving He whose love for us surpasses anything else?

Prayer; Oh glory, glory excelsis unto You my most reverent loving Father in Heaven for double blessing me. The first blessing is Your supreme infinite love for me which is my greatest treasure. The second blessing is the privilege of loving the most majestic loving Father there could ever be. In the name of Your lost loving son Jesus Christ I do respectfully praise You. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Difference is That.

                                                         

The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Lord listens to us as every loving Father listens to his children.

The difference is that Jehovahs power and resources are unlimited as is his wisdom.

Earthly loving fathers are limited in what they can do for their children and with their children.

An important part in trusting that your prayers are answered is to make sure that you are a righteous man or woman of Jehovahs family.

To be righteous means that we are to be living in accord with divine or moral law.

If we are unrighteous we have no right to expect anything from Jehovah because we do not deserve anything from Him.

Just as you are ignoring Jehovahs call to be righteous so too does He ignore your prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So, before you ask anything from Jehovah it is important that you ask Him to teach you how to live a righteous life and to help you in that process (yes you will need help because the task is too great to accomplish on your own). Then you will also understand the type of prayers that are most pleasing unto Him.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) bestow upon me the ability to live a righteous life so as to be a delightful child of Yours and teach me in how to pray prayers that are delightful to Your ears. Then the end result of this will be powerful and effective prayers that can be prayed to assist others. I genuinely request this in the name of the greatest Rabbi who taught His disciples to pray prayers that are pleasing unto You 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

In the Gutter Not in The .

 

                                                      

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the dirty that brings forth the most glory.

It is when we are asked and indeed sometimes it is demanded of us to do the dirty jobs no one else desires to do that we have the opportunity to bring Jehovah the most glory.

When I was a teacher in Asia I was always given the classes from Hell. Yes, they were tough but it was also an opportunity to bring Jehovah glory. Many times teachers, students and parents would see me praying before a class. Everybody laughed with the attitude that I needed all the help I could get. All the while they did not even believe in Jehovah.

I would walk into class and have a great class. Everyone was stunned. All glory was given where it rightly belonged: to my wise Teacher in Heaven.

Indeed, after about two months the horrible monsters became little angles. Everyone was shocked beyond words and they knew it was because of me (well, the majority of it was because of the Holy Spirit blessing me with wisdom, strength, patience, gracefulness and meekness).

Soon all the other parents wanted their children in my class. Some even became Christians.

The best opportunity to bring Jehovah glory is in the gutter not in the palace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many complain about their circumstances but will not lift a finger to make the change that needs to be done in their personal lives or their environment to improve their lot. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) be present with me when difficult and undesirable tasks are heaved upon my shoulders. Please bestow upon me Your Divine wisdom, grace, meekness and strength to use this opportunity to bring glory unto You my Love. I respectfully request this in the name of He who brought You untold glory as He took the  most horrible job of all on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Nothing Under the Sun can Satisfy, Except.

 

                                                               

He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]. Ecclesiastes 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is an unlimited daily treasure trove of experiences to witness Jehovahs glory all around us. These experiences are the best time to witness to others about the God of beauty and His infinite love for us using the beauty He is showing us at the time. It does not matter if we are young or old, what nationality or colour we are or those we are witnessing to.

As well, when we are in these places talking with others they are likely to relax and open up with you about their problems. Take time to listen and take notes (if they ask you why you are taking notes just explain to them that that is to reflect back on and each one can be discussed more in depth). Then help them get the help they need whether it is counselling or whether it is some other resource they need.

At the end of the talk ask them their name (if you have not already done so). When they ask why just explain to them that you are putting them on your prayer list and are going to pray for them every day.

Many times, from my experience they will meet you again and will be much more open to listening to you share the gospel.

Pray that Jehovah guides you to the place where He reveals His beauty and glory to someone that has a receptive heart ready to come unto Him (do not do this on your own initiative but upon His and you will have great success).

“God hath given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) shine Your Divine light on the path You desire me to take to share Your love and beauty with others. In so doing may this be a inviting time to bring lost souls unto Your Holy family. I humbly request this in the name of my adorable Heavenly King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Let Them Not Rule.

 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous (deliberate, willful) sins;
Let them not rule
and have control over me. Psalm 19:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are certain inherited sins in us all as well are a fallen race.

The only way to conquer them is through the submission unto the all power of the Holy Spirit.

I know, that is the only way I beat alcoholism.

Have you ever seen a row between two folks and just before it comes to blows a friend steps between one of them and prevents him from getting into a fight? He does so because he knows the other man or woman will beat the snot out of his or her friend. The ringer is laughing at the sucker and egging them on to fight just for the perverted pleasure of fighting.

That is what the man in the above verse is saying.

Satan knows our weakness and will work on it and present it to us in an appealing manner. The temptation is too strong for us. That is when we need to call in the supreme Superman to save the day. His name is The Holy Spirit.

There have been numerous times the temptation was so great I thought my head was going to explode. I called out in desperation :” Come now Holy Spirit, please hurry or all is lost.” It may sound incredible but it is true, the temptation was immediately taken from me.

Satan drools when he sees foolish Christians think they are strong enough to resist him. They are the easiest prey.

That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Without the Holy Spirits help we all fall away from Jehovah and towards satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for being my defense against a wily foe who can easily destroy me without You but cannot touch me with You. I give thanks in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross and at the resurrection Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
