Smash the Chains.

So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery Galatians 5:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Have you ever seen paintings of slaves being led in chains.

That is what sin is and destructive addiction.

When we accept Christ as our Savior, He smashes the chains of slavery.

Now that does not mean we can go out and do what ever we want, that will just lead us back into the chains of slavery again.

What it means is that now we are free will servants of Christ. What ever Jesus asks us to do is either for our own good or for the good of others.

Not all chains will be smashed right away.

That would be too much freedom for us to handle.

Some chain may take decades to be smashed and some never be until we reach Heavens Gate.

That is good though as it keeps us dependent on Christ. The more He frees us, the more we love Him. The more we love Him the more we desire to serve Him.

Jesus is the best freedom fighter there is. He always has 100% victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Keren Yishi (Psalms 18:2 The LORD the Horn of My Salvation ) for blessing me with Your salvation from terrible addictions, disastrous dispositions and the marvelous freedom that only You can provide. I exalt You in the name of He who is victorious over satan and death, Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

Not Just To

  Hot tempered people must pay the penalty.  If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again. Proverbs 19:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation          

This applies not just to hot tempered folks but also to those with addictions whether that be substance abuse or whether it be lack of maturity in handling money.                      

If you keep on bailing them out, they will never take responsibly for their action and thus never mature.  You are doing them more harm than good.

Sad to say but it is true that mothers and grandmothers are the worst offenders of this.  

Prayer Please Jehovah Jireth ( Genesis 22:14 – The LORD Shall Provide ) bless me to have faith in Your provisions in my loved ones lives. You will do so in a manner in which they must become more mature children in Your family which will cause my heart to dance with joy.

I humbly ask this in the name of He who provided salvation to those who were willing to accept Him not just as their savior but as their king Jesus Christ. Amen  

May you be blessed with discernment to when to help and when the best help is to step back and allow those to reap the rewards of reckless living. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh Please Jehovah Rapha

Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. Romans 8:12-13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh please Jehovah Rapha (God my healer Jeremiah 33:6 ) rescue me, Your tormented child, from this addiction. It is slowly destroying my life. It is too powerful for me to conquer on my own but I have faith in the power of Your saving grace. I humbly submit it to You in the name of the greatest healer of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

Editors note, please get into Christian groups that help recovered addicts. Most folks need support through these difficult times and most times there is mental problems that cause the addiction

May you be blessed with the gentle but powerful healing touch of the greatest physician of all today, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why We All Need

The Father is the One Who judges you by what you do. 1 Peter 1:17 The Holy Bible, the New Life Version

We all come from dysfunctional families, that is why we all need Christ.

Yes, we all have inherited addictions like alcoholism and bad traits like stubbornness but that does not excuse our behaviour.

When we surrender to Christ, He burns those off and replaces them with Holy addictions, like desiring sharing what it is like to spend time with Jesus instead of being a tongue wagger- gossiper and depending upon the Holy Spirit to bless us with self control instead of stupidly going in debt buying things we do not need.

This is not a one off experience but one that lasts a life time.

I have walked with Christ for forty years and He is still burning of undesirable traits and replacing them with righteous ones.

“Do not remember the former things, Or ponder the things of the past. “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Isaiah 43:18-19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Now do not be discouraged when those around you – especially family and old friends – laugh at you when you begin this transformation experience. Many will vilify and hate you. You will have to walk away from them and towards Christ. You are responsible unto Christ for your actions, not them.

“Above all the grace and gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self.” — Francis of Assisi

It is extremely difficult but the big three are there to help you, encourage you, and guide you. They are of course: Jehovah our loving Father, Jesus Christ, our best friend and the Holy Spirit our teacher, guidance Councillor, healers, comforter, encourager and strengthener.

“Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.” — A. W. Tozer

Listen to them as they guide you on the difficult road to Heavens Gate instead of those that are on the Highway to Hell.

Do you get excited about investing the time, talent, and resources God has given you this day, so on that day you will hear Him say, ‘Well done good and faithful servant?'”Terry A. Parker

I do not care what he says, she says or they say, I care about what Christ says. And then obeying His wise voice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah, Jesus and Holy Spirit ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You – Judges 6:12 ) for blessing me with Your continuous presence as You transform me into the beautiful child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of the most beautiful Son, Jesus Christ. Amen

But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I Love to Share My

So I have reason to be enthusiastic about all Christ Jesus has done through me in my service to God. Yet I dare not boast about anything except what Christ has done through me Romans 15:17-18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I love to share my experiences of what the Holy Spirit has done for me and what He has done through me .

I love to share marvelous stories of how He conquered bad dispositions in me and how He freed me from destructive lifestyles that were too strong for me to conquer and were only conquered when they were laid at the feet of Jesus. Some happened instantly while others I had to wait for deliverance from, sometimes years.

I love to share my walk with Christ and how He led me to places I would rather not go and do things for Him that I thought were impossible. They were accomplished through team work with the Holy Spirit.

If I brag about anything, I brag about what the Holy Spirit has done for me and what He has done through me Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Shammah ( The Lord is Present Hebrews 13:5 ) for blessing me with all You have done in my life and through my life.Please bless me with bountiful opportunities to share these experiences with others.                                                            Please bless me with the courage and grace to do so as to make Jehovah, Jesus and You appealing to those who hunger for love and purpose in their live. I give thanks for these blessings and humbly request these blessings in the name of the greatest blessing to mankind, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Leads the Body.

 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. Romans 8:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

The spirit leads the body. What your spirit desires is what the body goes after.

When you are of the world, your spirit leads you to fleshly desires (which leads you to do stupid things).

Why do you think there are so many different types of addictions, all of which destroy not only the body but the mind as well.

The Christian spirit is to be harmony with Christ’s. The Holy Spirit will be the guide on how to accomplish this in our thoughts, words and deeds. When we have a vigorous love for Christ, we will have a vigorous desire to follow the Holy Spirits leading in our life.

“The vigor of our spiritual life will be in exact proportion to the place held by the Bible in our life and thoughts.” George Müller

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Mauzzi (Jeremiah 16:19 The LORD My Fortress) bless me to be my fortress to keep fleshly thoughts from destroying the temple You have created for my King Jesus. Please build a impenetrable foundation of our fortress build on the Bibles morale’s and integrity in my thoughts and deeds. I humbly request this in the name of my strong  unconquerable King, 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

How to Get Superpower

 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. John 14:16-17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The Holy Spirit is the secret of the power in my life. All I have to do is surrender my life to Him.” — Kathryn Kuhlman

Do you want to know how to get superpower?

When we accept Jesus as our saviour and king, we are blessed with the Holy Spirit. He blesses us with super powers.

No one can bless us with the superior wisdom like He does for every aspect of our lives.

No one can conquer our destructive habits like He can.

No one can defeat our enemies like He can. No one can give us super power to resist temptation like He can.

And, the best of all, these powers are ours for the asking whenever we need them to help us be faithful, obedient servants unto Christ.

Unlike TV or movies, Christ’s powers are real and unconquerable. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength Psalm 27:1 ) for blessing me with a minute bit of Your super strength to defeat all the obstacles in my life that tried in vain to separate us or hinder the work You destined for me to accomplish in Your awesome name.I give glory to You in the name of the ultimate super hero Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What Will Happen To

 The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us.

We were respectful and friendly with them.

Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes. This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart. But the sad thing is that:

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy. And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conutit to guide them to Him.

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) bless me with helping me discern the difference between those that need help and those that are parasites upon society. The one my heart dance with joy for the opportunity to help. The other is a waste of time, energy and resources. I humbly request this in the name of He who only gave salvation to those who were willing to become His servants and work for His kingdoms interest 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

Once and Forever

Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. Hebrews 7:25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Standard

GODS HELP

We all have them.

Wars, yes they are cruel wars that inflict a lot of pain, torment and destruction in our lives. They are called addictions. Yes, there are the obvious ones like alcoholism, but there are also the ones like having constant negative thoughts.

There are the constant Worry Wort Willies that worry about everything and Negative Nellies that can always find something to complain about.

We know these addictions are wrong.

However, no matter how hard we try to stop doing them, we fall flat on our faces.

The only way to complete and total victory is to completely surrender them to Jesus. Then and only them will there be complete and total victory.

There are some wars that only the Holy Spirit can win. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Our response for this amazing gift is total joy, gratitude and dedication to our Saviour.

I believe that is why Jehovah allows imperfections in us, to teach us what a wonderful, loving, caring and generous Father He is. That creates a loving heart in us towards Him. This is the object of Jehovah, to bless us with the most Heavenly of love affairs.

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with victory over foes that are too strong for me to conquer. Thank you for smashing those cruel chains that enslaved me. I forever sing praises of gratitude unto You in the name of the Victorious King of Kings, 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

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
