He Who Has a Head of Wax

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.

The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.

Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).

Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me).  Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).

Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).

Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Those who have a head of wax must not walk out in the sun (know your weaknesses) Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.

Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.

Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.

I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses 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

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

A Time to Walk Away.

                                                     

A prudent man sees evil and hides himself and avoids it.Proverbs 27:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a time to walk away.

When dealing with stubborn folks there is a time to walk away. They are selfish and arrogant. They believe they are right and refuse to allow the facts to get in the way or to consider others wants or desires. They just shut down and you might as well talk to a wall. Then you become angry and say words you regret latter.

When I encounter these situations I walk away and stay away from them. They mock me and tease me saying I am pouting and laughing because they got their own way.

In reality, I am shutting my mouth to them and opening it to Jehovah. Then if I am wrong He educates me why I am wrong and how to right it. If I am right, He goes after the other folk and the more they resist Him the stronger His hand is on them.

The way I look at it is if they refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit, they most certainly will not listen to me.

The majority of times it will take four or five days until the stubborn souls comes around. It works one hundred percent of the time for me.

Then there is the spawn of satan. They like to find a weakness and then intentionally irk you on to get you upset. Then the just step back and laugh at you. All the while they are pretending to be so sweet and innocent. To just ignore them is the best defense against them.

The funny thing is though, shortly after that someone turn the tables on them and they go off like a rocket. They make themselves look like a fool and are laughed at like they laugh at others.

I walk away when you are in a every situation that I feel I have to yell to get my point across. It prevents a lot of stress and words for which I shall regret later. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) deliver me from all destructive conversations that only lead to disasters. I humbly request this in the name of He who walked away from the scribes and Pharisee’s who only desired to argue with 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

Jehovah Will Take You to a Place.

So He said, “Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord was passing by, and a great and powerful wind was tearing out the mountains and breaking the rocks in pieces before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind, [there was] an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake, [there was] a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire, [there was] the sound of a gentle blowing. When Elijah heard the sound, he wrapped his face in his mantle (cloak) and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, a soft voice came to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts (armies), because the sons of Israel have abandoned (broken) Your covenant, torn down Your altars and killed Your prophets with the sword. And I, only I, am left; and they seek to take away my life.” 1 Kings 19:11-14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Mount Horeb was also called Mount Zion which is where Moses spoke with Jehovah.

Jehovah will take you to a place where there is no distraction.

Elijah was sheltered from Jehovahs destructive power and then Jehovah spoke with him in a soft gentle voice.

When Jehovah desires to speak with you it will not be yelling and screaming but in a soft gentle voice.

Jehovah knew why Elijah was there just as He knew why Adam and Eve were hiding from Him. He wanted Elijah to pour out his frustrations and pity party to Him. He wants you to do the same with Him. He will not pamper you nor scold you. He will remind you of all the blessing He has given you and will strengthen and encourage you.

At least that is what happens with me. He always guides me to a quiet place in nature and we can spend hours going through verse after verse through the Bible, sometimes for hours, sometimes for days on end until His point is made. By the completion I am left being at peace, strengthened, joyous and appreciative of all my Beloved has done for me, is doing for me and will be doing for me.

Elijah was arrogant in believing he was the only prophet left even though he was told otherwise earlier. He was taking credit for what Jehovah did with alter and prophets of Baal. He had no faith in Jehovah’s protective power.

How many times has Jehovah done amazing things threw us and folks give us the credit? We do not correct them but bask in the glory and indeed feel ashamed to give Jehovah the glory because we feel we will be laughed at by the crowd.

How many times after a great victory do we experience a great crash? We run in fear as if the amazing accomplishment Jehovah has just done through us never occurred and we have zero faith in Him. It has happened to me many times. Afterwards there is a lot of shame.

But, when we repent Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

That does not give us carte blanch to continue to do this though, we must grow in our faith.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to correct me when I become arrogant and thank you for being patient and comforting with me when I have a pity party. Thank you for Your gentle voice of encouragement, wisdom and strength and guidance in all of my life. I exalt You in the name of the most respectful King which I always try to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The First Two were Arrogant.

Then the king sent to Elijah a captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men to seize the prophet]. And he went up to him, and behold, he was sitting on the top of a hill. And the captain said to him, “Man of God, the king says, ‘Come down.’” Elijah replied to the captain of fifty, “So if I am a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men].” Then fire fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. So King Ahaziah again sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And he said to him, “Man of God, thus says the king, ‘Come down quickly.’” Elijah answered them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men].” And the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 2 Kings 1:9-13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The first two were arrogant with a man they knew was a man from Jehovah. They were disrespectful. They were not asking respectfully of the man of Jehovah but were arrogantly demanding. They paid the price.

I have found that those who bully one of Jehovahs children pay a very dear price (it is not fire from Heaven but it is severe none the less).

So Ahaziah again sent a captain of a third fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And the third captain of fifty went up and came bowed down on his knees before Elijah, and begged him [for compassion] and said to him, “O man of God, please let my life and the lives of your servants, these fifty, be precious in your sight. Behold, fire came down from heaven and consumed the first two captains of fifty with their fifties; but now let my life be precious in your sight.” The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.” So he stood and went down with him to the king. 2 Kings 1:14-15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The last man was respectful and humble and did not suffer the same fate as the previous two.

I have found that when one is respectful towards one of Jehovah children they are blessed, even if they are not of His family. Be respectful unto everyone but especially a child of Jehovah or you will pay a very heavy price.

Be respectful unto all, but especially those of Jehovahs family. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) bless me to never be disrespectful towards anyone, especially one of Your servants. I humbly request this in the name of my most respectful King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Their Filthy Wickedness.

 When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Are you the one who is bringing disaster on Israel?” 1 Kings 18:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The nation of Israel was being punished for their wicked rebellion against Jehovah. When one of His prophets told the folks of their Divine punishment for their filthy wickedness and then when it occurred everyone blamed Elijah instead of being mature enough to admit their sins and too arrogant to repent of them.

In case you think that was just something that was done in the olden times you are sorely mistaken. Many times I have been accused of asking Jehovah to physically condemn those that are willingly walking in wickedness as if He will do my every bidding. When I try to explain to them that they have caused this upon their own heads, they steadfastly refuse to even acknowledge their sin much less take responsibility for it.

It is easier or the wicked to accuse the righteous for their downfall than to be mature enough, humble enough and sorrowful enough to admit their filth. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) that true justice is done at Your Divine hands upon the wicked and for blessing me with the wisdom not to take it to heart when the wicked blame me for punishment when it comes. I exalt You in the name of the ultimate Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Master of Our Passions

“Oh Lord, become the master of our passions, and the creator of our desires.” R. Marklund

Too many times today I hear elderly parents cry that their children and grandchildren have deserted them. The only time they call is when they want money. They are selfish, arrogant and ungrateful.

Who taught them that?

In Asia they are called Little Emperors and Little Empress’. Their mothers and grandmothers spoiled them rotten when they were children. Now they are lazy, arrogant, ungrateful and selfish. They have nothing to do with their parents and grandparents.

Instead of teaching their children love, respect, caring, sharing, and to be appreciative they taught them to whine until they got what they wanted. That they are so special, that happiness comes only from material things. Then they complain because their children grow up to be disrespectful, greedy, shallow, self centered materialistic brats who shun the parents and grandparents.

Most parents and grandparents spent lavishly on these brats while doing without for themselves.

Now they are poor and in need of help. Their children are cold and cold care less.

The parents and grandparents wail about their fate yet it was they themselves who created these monsters.

I was shocked when I returned to Canada from a ten year hiatus of teaching in China to see with disgust the same scenario repeatedly occurring here.

Being a care giver for my elderly mother I hear the same stories from her friends.

Doing volunteer work in a seniors home it is shocking to see and hear it from the residents the neglect of their children and grandchildren. So many of them have been thrown in there to die and never see their children or grandchildren except on Christmas. Yet, they themselves worshipped their children and grandchildren when they were young and now are abandoned by them. The only time they call is when they want money but if the parents or grandparents want any help the children and grandchildren are “too busy” to help.

Perhaps that is why Jehovah tells us to love Him above all others. It is because He loves us more than anyone could or would. He will never abuse us, leave us nor desert us.                                                          

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

Idols always break the hearts of their worshippers.” C.S.Lewis

Prayer: Please my wonderful Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a heart that is faithful unto You and to worship only You as You are the only one worthy of praise, worship and stewardship. I humbly request this in the name of He who emulates what it is like to be Your Holy child Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Need Not Look.

 Woe to him who piles up stolen goods and makes himself wealthy by extortion!Habakkuk 2:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We need not look to gangsters or big corporations or big government to see extortion.

Just look at families.

How many ex-wives use the children for extortion with their ex-husbands? “ If you want to see the children you must do this for me first.” Speaking with a lot of divorced men the women quite frequently use extortion on the. If you do not believe me go speak with some divorced men and find out for yourself.

How many children use their grandchildren for extortion with their parents? If you want to see the grandchildren you must first do this for me ( usually it involves the grandparents having to give their children money if they want to see their grandchildren. I saw it numerous times in my own family).

Parents and grandparents in seniors homes have their children and or grandchildren come to visit them only because they want money. If you do not give me money I do not have the time to come and visit you. Doing volunteer work in seniors for a number of years it is quite common to see this.

Jehovah hates these disgusting things and the Law of Reciprocation clearly states that it will come back on you seven times worse than what you did to them.

Doing these horrible things is one of the worst sins you can commit and Jehovah hates you for it.

The boastful and the arrogant will not stand in Your sight; You hate all who do evil. Psalm 5:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) bless me with wisdom, honesty, integrity and respect for all others as You have been with me. I humbly beseech You in the name of the most honest and integral man to have ever walked the earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Why Don’t They

For this is the will of God, that you be sanctified [separated and set apart from sin]: that you abstain and back away from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honour [being available for God’s purpose and separated from things profane], not [to be used] in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God and are ignorant of His will. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Most popular TV shows and movies glorify sex out as something lustful and fun. Why don’t they show those same people going to the doctor to get treated for syphilis, gonorrhea and aids?

Why don’t they show an unborn baby being ripped from its mothers womb and being thrown into an incinerator like a piece of garbage?

Why don’t they show most children born out of wed lock join gangs and lead destructive lives?

Why don’t they show the affected one with sexual disease explain to family and friends they have a life destroying disease because of their poor choices?

Why don’t they show people laying in bed afterwards wondering how it feel that someone just used your body to satisfy their lust and how they feel empty, sad and used?

Why don’t they show young people who lose out on going to school, getting a good education and job being cast into the abyss of welfare, booze, drugs and a meaningless life?

Could it be because sex sells while responsible, respectful, loving relationships do not?

Could it be because most people do not want to think of the life altering consequences of their foolishness?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) forgive the arrogant who blatantly give You the finger by abusing their bodies and then blaming You when it comes time to pay the penalty. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest Teacher who was ignored Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Where Your Heart Goes

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23New International Version

If you have unresolved anger in your heart it will affect not just your physical well being but will affect your relationships in your family, with your friends and classmates and co-workers.

If you are proud you become arrogant and that affects your interpersonal relationships.

If you are in love with yourself you will end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

If you are materialistic it will make you very sad and a slave to consumerism and put you into debt of which you will never free yourself from.

Most important of all if you suffer from any of these afflictions it will affect your most treasured relationship, that of Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Where your heart goes, your feet follow Joseph- Anthony: Green

The best way to prevent yourself from falling into one these destructive trait is to daily nurture yourself in your relationship with them. We do this by reading their Word to us, by obeying it and by daily prayer.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit my guidance councilor guide me away from destructive forces and guide me in walking with Your Heavenly will. In the name of He who guided His heart and lead by example Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
