Talk About Arrogant.

 Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive.  And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’  Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there.  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).”’ Luke 12:16-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Talk about arrogant.

This guy takes full credit while giving Jehovah none.

Did the rich man make the land fertile and productive or did Jehovah?

Than should the rich man not have given thanks unto Jehovah and share with the less fortunate as Jehovah shared with him?

Who determines when we die, the rich man or Jehovah?

Than should he not have used his time wisely to store up treasures in Heaven rather that sit on his laurels?

Should he not have given unto his community as Jehovah greatly gave unto him?

Did the rich man celebrate his good fortune with others or did he greedily keep his parties for himself?

Should we not share with others our good fortune as Jehovah as blessed us with them?

How about you?

Do you share in your blessings ,both great and small, with others or do you greedily keep them for yourself?

Do you publicly praise Jehovah for His graciousness towards you or do you brag about it as if it was you who did the accomplishment?

Do you waste your retirement years going on cruises or other luxuries or do you take this opportunity to share your time and wisdom with the younger generation?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with all of the abundant mental, physical and spiritual gifts provided for me on a daily basis.

May these be used as an opportunity to give thanks to You both privately and publicly and to be used to help those in Your family that are in need.

I joyfully give all praise unto You and request this blessing in the name of He who always used His Divine gifts for the benefit of others Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Difference Between

 Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many who thought they were so smart and in reality they were as bright as a burned out light bulb. They were also very arrogant. There was no talking with them. They thought they knew everything.

For example, when teaching in Asia many of the new teachers had university degree’s. They looked down on me and mocked me self righteously because they were superiority intelligent than I.

What they did not know is that you teach Asian differently than in the west because they learn differently. When I would try to explain this to them they looked at me like I was a piece of rubbish on the street and remarked how they would show me the proper way to teach because I was a simpleton. Of course their classes were disasters. Rather than lower themselves to admit they were wrong, they continued on teaching the wrong way and blaming their failures on the students. This was very common.

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has it’s limits, stupidity knows no limits. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There has been numerous other examples of this in varying professions I have been in and in different social environments.

Personally I have found the bigger the chip on the shoulders is a good indication that they are blockheads. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please El Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with Your Divine knowledge and the humbless to generously share this wisdom with others. Please shame me publicly when I begin to become big headed. You are the only one that deserves glory. Bless me to be prudent in accepting praise and self disciplined in sharing knowledge with others so as to give glory unto You and not me. I meekly request this in the name of the wisest, yet humblest of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Love to Listen To

                                       

“With the aged [you say] is wisdom, And with long life is understanding. Job 12:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being in my elder years I have been on both sides of the coin.

In my younger years I loved to listen to elders for advice (not all of them of course, only the righteous ones). This has prevented a lot of disasters in my life.

When I was stubborn and ignored their advice it always ended it catastrophe.

Now, being in my elder years myself, I love to offer my experience to the younger generation.

Most of them foolishly believe they can get all the wisdom they need from the internet and that us old foggies are stupid. That is a very unwise decision to make.

I love to listen to old foggies. Now not all of the elderly are wise and should not be listened to, only listen to the righteous ones.

Your elders have more of lifes experience than you. Listen to them and prevent a lot of hardships in your life. Arrogantly ignore them at your own peril. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with all those Godly teachers You have guided me to guided to me for sharing their prudent advice in my life.

Thank you my Beloved for blessing me with the opportunity to share my discretion with those who are less experienced in life (no matter their age) so as to guide them away from disaster and towards success.

I exalt Thee in the name of the most astute teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Is Afraid of Sausages

A wise man suspects danger and cautiously avoids evil, But the fool is arrogant and careless. Proverbs 14:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen far too many folks go from one disastrous relationship to another. It seems as if they never learn. They are arrogant and refuse counselling saying that this time is different. The end result is one disaster after another. The same goes in every aspect of their lives.

Now the wise man learns from his mistakes, and the biggest mistake of course is to depend upon our own knowledge rather that Jehovah’s.

You may think you are smart but con men love to prey upon arrogant simpletons like that.

The opposite side of the coin is where folks see the boogy man around every corner because they have been burned bad. Again, they are depending upon their own knowledge rather than Jehovah’s to guide them through life. Their life is just as big of a disaster.

You want to be a wise man or woman?

Then always go to the supreme guidance Councillor for advice. His name is the Holy Spirit and He will come whenever you call. Believe me, I have learned this most valuable lesson in the school of hard knocks. It took many repeated lessons to learn it and take my word for it, they were not enjoyable to repeat.

A dog bitten by a snake is afraid of sausages (after being hurt you become more cautious).

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with Your Divine knowledge throughout my life. May I always be attentive to Your voice, understand what You are saying and be obedient unto Your wise advice. I humbly give thanks and ask this in the name of the wisest Rabbi of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Stubbornness Come in Two Forms.

                                                        

Stubbornness comes in two forms.

Form number one is arrogance or another word for it is pride. Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do the I did or I said’s drive you bonkers?

They do me.

They cannot say a sentence without pumping themselves up. They are so polluted with pride it is a stench for me to be round them. They foolishly believe the whole world revolves around them.

And, you know what?

They are very shallow and fragile. Anything that pricks their pride and they get deflated like a punctured balloon they pull a temper tantrum. I have seen many an adult become indignant and insulting to anyone who brings them down to earth. They feel as if a capital offense has been committed to them. They are very immature. They pull a lot of pouty pouts. I have seen some fall to the ground and pound their fists and kick their feet into the air while screaming like a spoiled little brat (yes I am talking about adults).

Steer clear of these creatures less you learn their ways and fall into the same disgrace as they do. Form number two is greed.

“Because he knew no quietness or calm within him [because of his greed], He does not retain anything he desires. Job 20:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

These destructive creatures do not care who they hurt as long as they get what they want. The problem of course though is that most times it back fires on them. I have met many that were warned that to attempt to do a certain thing would lead to disaster. Their response is: “Who are you to try to tell me what to do?”. They then proceed in the venture only to be met with the forewarned disaster. Their response is always the same. They blame everyone and everything around them rather than be mature and take the responsibility for it themselves.

Avoid these creatures at all cost as they will lead you into disaster and disaster.

Pride come in two forms. Form number one is arrogance. Form number two is greed. They both end in disaster. Jospeh a son of Jehovah

Finally as they age they will find that they will be fighting their own bodies which results in constant pain. I have seen many elders refuse to accept the restrictions on their bodies only to end up in bed in intense pain. The amazing thing is though is that they never learn.

Like a dog that returns to his vomit Is a fool who repeats his foolishness. Proverbs 26:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Then when they are put into seniors homes because they refuse to listen and obey their doctors instructions, they constantly fight a losing battle with the staff. They are continuously trying to tell the staff what to do while refusing to co-operate with them. They become resentful because they cannot have their own way and pout. The result of this is that no one want to be around them so they just sit there crying because they are so lonely all day.

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth ( Lord Strong -Mighty ) bless me with the strength to burn off all stubbornness in my disposition. Please come and reprimand me when I am being foolish by being stubborn. I sincerely request this so important request in the name of He who was never stubborn 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

Poured Out My Wrath On

                                   

As silver is melted in the furnace, so will you be melted in the midst of it; and you will know [without any doubt] that I the Lord have poured out My wrath on you [O Israel].’” Ezekiel 22:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Yes, Jehovahs patience only lasts so long. And, when it is exhausted look out. He knows how to hand out the appropriate punishment and it is severe.

If we are smart we repent of our offences and the and His heavy hand is lifted.

For the not so bright and the arrogant He delivers the ultimate punishment unto them. He turns His back on them and then His punishment will seem enjoyable compared to what transpires when He turns His back on you.

Just as you turn your back on Christ, so too will He turn His back on you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Because Jehovah is love, it is impossible for Him to do anything bad. But, He will see disaster coming your way and will not warn you (why should He, you refuse to listen anyway).

I believe we all experience Jehovahs wrath, both those inside His family and those outside of it, After all, we are still mortals and sometimes succumb to fleshly desires. The difference is that those inside His family repent, like David did and are forgiven (although we must still suffer the consequences of our foolish actions). Those outside of the family, their lives at first slowly and then in time accelerates into complete disaster and a living Hell.

Prayer: Oh please Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless those with whom You are putting through the furnace to not abandon You less they suffer the ultimate judgement which is an eternity in damnation in Hell. I plead their case in the whose blood washes all of their filthy condemnable sins Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Most Dangerous Thing.

 

                                        

For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil.1 Timothy 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many try to reach the end of the rainbow and destroy their lives and those around them in the process. Of course we all know there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. By the same terms there is never enough money for the greedy, they always want more and they do not care who they hurt in the process. The price they pay is a cold heart unto others and being loved by none in return. That is a sad trade off for things which cannot love you back.

As well, there is also the arrogance that comes from success. There is the attitude of I am a self made man, giving no credit unto Jehovah for the blessings. That is arrogant, rude, disrespectful and down right stupid.

A reason for this is because just as Jehovah has blessed you, so too can He take away the blessings in the blink of an eye. I have seen many in soup kitchens that at one time lived in mansions.

Success has ruined more people than failure.  It has been said that money is the most dangerous thing God can put into your trust.

Of the two, I choose Christ’s love over the love of dead material things which cannot love back. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) incredible blessing of sharing Your Divine love with me. This is indeed the greatest treasure of all. I exalt Thee in the name of He who emulated Your love for us while He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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