The Only One Who

DEVINE PLANS

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:8-10 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Have you ever wondered why it seems as if everyone is angry at something these days?

Have you noticed how folks are always changing their jobs so much these days?

Have you ever wondered why folks are such addicts to sports teams, movie stars and musicians these days (it has always existed but no where near to the level it is at today)?

I believe the reason is because they have no purpose in their lives so they try to find purpose in sports teams, musicians, movie stars and participating in charitable events they do not have their heart in to. Of course they find no real meaning to their lives.

The only one who can accomplish that is Jesus.

Without purpose life has no meaning, it is trivial, pointless and petty. Jesus is the only one who blesses us with purpose here in this life and in the eternal one that is to come. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So, why do most folks refuse to go to Jesus for meaning and purpose in their lives?

Because they are too arrogant, selfish and stubborn to surrender their will to Christs. They regret in now but will really regret in in their final destination which is Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalm 10:16 for blessing me with purpose, meaning and fulfillment in my life. That of course is to be Your humble servant. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Don’t Waste Your Breath

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice. Proverbs 23:9 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever tried talking with fools?

They are stubborn, stupid and arrogant.

They are stubborn. You can take them through it bit by bit and they agree with you all along the way. Then you ask them if they agree with what you are saying at the end of the conversation and they laugh at you like you are a fool and they are so much smarter than you. When they refuse to listen and go their own way which ends in disaster it is everybody’s fault but their own.

They are stupid. They know from experience that what they are doing is going to end in disaster but stupidly believe the outcome this time will end differently, which it does not. It ends in disaster. When the inevitable disaster occurs again they blame everybody but themselves. They are arrogant. They believe they are right and everybody that disagrees with them is wrong. They will not allow the facts to get in the way.

So many times I see this in seniors and stand there and shake my head and wonder how they have managed to live this long. When you sit down and talk with them they will admit that most of their problems and disasters in their lives have been because they are stubborn. I hear some uneducated idiots tell me that they are that way because they are old and set in their ways. In reality they have been like that all their lives. I try to talk with them (fools) but if they refuse to listen I just walk away, not wanting to see the disastrous results.

Just ask any policeman or woman how many disasters they have encountered because of stupidity and stubbornness. Indeed there was a recent incident where a road was blocked of because of flooding. A woman refused to obey and went around the sign. Her car was swept into the river and she lost her son because of her arrogance and stupidity. 

The same goes through for any nurse in Emergency Ward.

I speak, you do not listen, why should I speak any more? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God my teacher) bless me to always listen and obey Your wise voice. I know that doing so will avoid a lot of trouble, agony and hardship. I ask this in the name of He who was always obedient unto Your voice 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.

Have Nothing More to do With Them.

 When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble?Job 34:29 Holy Bible New King James Version

 I have a very contentious neighbor. He can go off like a rocket with little to no provocation by me. He is a constant thorn in my side. Indeed many times some very un-Christian words come out of my mouth during the conversation as he continuously pushes my buttons.

This problem was taken to the Lord and asked the proper manner in which to handle the situation without me exploding at him as he irritated me. The above verse jumped out at me during the next mornings Bible Verse as well as;

If people are causing divisions among you, give a first and second warning. After that, have nothing more to do with them. Titus 3:10 New Living Translation Bible

This makes perfect sense.

These types of folks are not interested in anyone’s opinion but their own and care not about anyone but themselves. Trying to talk things out with them is like talking with a wall. I do not waste my time talking with walls.

I do not even speak with him if he tries to talk with me, I keep silent and ignore him. It prevents a lot of trouble.

Now there is a lot more peace in my life.

If you refuse to be respectful enough to listen to others opinion then do not waste my time. Go talk with yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) bless me with peace, wisdom,grace and strength when encountering those who delight in causing grief to others. I sincerely request this in the name of who kept His peace when dealing with arrogant detractors and unfair accusers towards Him, 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

The Yeah Buts.

 Because of these [sinful] things the [divine] wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience [those who fail to listen and who routinely and obstinately disregard God’s precepts] Colossians 3:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

We have all experienced the yeah buts.

Someone instructs us to do something we do not want to do and we all come up with the yeah buts. Yeah but _____ as an excuse for not doing as we are told to do.

Someone tells us not to do something and we come back with yeah but__________ for reasons we will do as we like.

The worst offence of course is when we are continuously disobedient unto Jehovahs direction in our life. We do so at our own peril.

If Jehovah directs us to do something it is for our own good or to advance His kingdom.

If Jehovah directs us not to do something it is because it will turn out bad for us or for others.

We will pay for our arrogant disobedience in painful fashion.

I have experienced it and it most certainly was not an enjoyable experience. Sad to say, I was a slow learner and it took decades before submitting to Jehovah with no thought of anything but obedience unto Him.

“Today we are overboard on belief but bankrupt on obedience.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) help me, as You always have, to be an obedient child of Yours. I know that Your call to obedience is for my own good as well as for Your honour. It is my greatest joy to bring glory and honor to the one I love the deepest. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient son 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.

I am Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

On an Admitted

HIS INSTRUCTION

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16:11 New Living Translation

A presumed fullness is when we brag that we are full and have no need of Jehovah. It is arrogant and is bragging. Beware. What is freely given unto you can and will be freely taken. Then you will end up with nothing. I have seen it oh so many times.

Then, there is the Christian perspective.

We empty our wants and desires for Jehovahs wants and desires. In the process we are blessed with love, purpose and spiritual treasures beyond compare. We may not be wealthy in the worlds eyes but boy are we ever rich in Jehovahs eyes.

“God is more disposed to move on an admitted emptiness than a presumed fullness.” — Tommy Tenn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with the most nutritious feast that is ever freely available to all seeking a fulfilling spiritual, mental and physical life. I praise You in the name of He who fills us daily with His Divine love Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?

EXAMINE YOURSELF
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4   Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                            

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumours, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying. All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offences and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle 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.
