Foolish Folks Who

The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.” Genesis 3: 12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

I have seen it too many times.

Foolish folks who refuse to man up and confess when they have done wrong whether intentional or not.

At first it used to be so frustrating trying to get them to be mature and admit their wrong. They would tell one lie to cover up for another lie. The whole time they believe they are so smart and you are so stupid. In truth they make themselves look like fools.

Not only that, but they have destroyed my trust so instead of enjoying a loving, mature relationship, now it is a formal one.

As well, if they are parents, they are setting a bad example for their children then get angry when the children do it to them.

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

Eventually, their minds become so distorted they laugh when you speak the truth and firmly believe a lie when it is told to them. This will ultimately cause their downfall.

He who hardens his neck and refuses instruction after being often reproved (corrected, criticized),Will suddenly be broken beyond repair. Proverbs 29:1 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Now, sometimes I make a game of it just to see how many idiotic lies they can make up. It can be quite comical.

Prayer: Oh praise You Holy Spirit Jehovah Emet (God of truth Titus 1:2 ) for blessing me with teaching me the truth and the terrible disastrous consequences of living a lie. May You always convict me when I stray from Jehovahs Divine truth. I humbly request this in the name of He who only spoke the truth when He walked amongst us, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you always be mature enough to walk in the light of Jehovahs truth and avoid the darkness of satans lies. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Bless Me to Enable Me To

But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. Luke 6:27-28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Are you willing to?

It is our natural inclination to close our ears to words we do not wish to listen to.

Are you willing to suppress that and listen to The Holy Spirits voice as He convicts you?

It is our natural inclination to hate our enemies and make them suffer as much as we can.

Are you willing to love them?

That is not the mushy nonsense you see in movies or on TV.

It is an effort that can only be accomplished by surrendering to the power of The Holy Spirit. It does not mean that you condone nor tolerate abusive behaviour. If you love them you will help them to understand why they are abusive ( many times it is because of abuse they have suffered and have not been healed of ) and help them get counselling. If you love them you will not empower them by allowing this behaviour to continue but will allow them to suffer the consequences of their actions.

Purge yourself of toxic folks less their poison kills your love and you are rewarded with nothing but misery in return. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

When others hate us it is natural to hate them back.

Are you willing to love your enemies by understanding why they hate you and seek reconciliation in the relationship. If they refuse are you willing to love them enough to behave in a respectful manner towards them. Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbours, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.” — G. K. Chesterton Prayer:

Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to enable me to conduct myself towards difficult folks in the noble manner in which Your gracious son Jesus Christ did. I wish not just for peace in this relationship but to use this situation to glorify You and to bring the little lost sheep into Your Heavenly fold. Please bless me with the strength and healing of ostracizing myself from toxic folks until they accept that their behaviour is not loving nor acceptable.

It is in the name of He who exemplified Christian behaviour towards others, Jesus Christ, that I humbly beseech You. Amen

May you always be receptive to and obedient to The Holy Spirits guidance in all of your relationships. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Off of You

Bring disgrace upon the arrogant people who lied about me; Psalm 119:78 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense. The God of vengeance ) that You see the petty, cruel behavior towards me by those who are gleefully dancing with the devil.

Thank you that You that You soothe the nasty cuts they inflict upon me with delight and give me the strength, integrity and wisdom to not behave in the same way as they do to me.

Thank you that You are a God of justice and their cruel words shall be like hot burning coals upon their own heads.

I praise You in the name of He who was hated and despised for walking uprightly by those that should have known better, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the God of justice bounce the wickeds filth off of you and hurl it back on them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Thank you Jehovah Emet

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Children are daily fed poison today. They are taught in school that they can be anything they want to be if they just put their mind to it. Nowhere is there any mention of Jehovah. That is a lie and poison to the mind, body and spirit.

When we submit to Christ, the Holy Spirit will teach us what Jehovah created us for. That brings purpose, comfort and encouragement to our lives.

Christ first, others second and self last is the Christian motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Media and most grandmothers and mothers teaches society that they are something special and they deserve the best without working for it. That is a lie and poison to the mind, body and spirit .

Well, we are special to Jehovah but not in a manner in which we are owed anything. We are special enough for Christ to have suffered and died for our sins but that also means as He is our King, so too are we His servants.

This means we are to serve instead of being spoiled little brats and always demanding Gimme more, gimme better, gimme it all.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth Titus 1:2 ) for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to mentor me in the walk in the way of Your unquestionable truth.

Thank you that He has enabled me with the time, resources, strength, wisdom and opportunities to serve my most loved glorious King, Jesus Christ.

I praise You in His magnificent name 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

To My Dear Cherished

In the morning, O Lord, I will direct my song and my prayer unto You and will look up. (Psalm 5:3)

To My dear cherished Poppa : Good morning Poppa This is the day that You have made and I rejoice and be glad for the gift of it.

With gratitude, I thank You for preserving my life for one more day.

With gratitude, I thank you for Your ultimate gift of love for me, in the form of Your Son and the sacrifice of His life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming gift that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to You.

I know Lord, that I am a mere human and cannot instruct You, but you Lord bless me with The Holy Spirit to instruct me.

So teach me Your ways that I may rely on Your steadfast faithfulness. Teach me to number my days and to use my time wisely. I don’t know what this day holds, but I know that You hold the day.

It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy.

Throughout this day, may I be always be keenly aware of Your presence in everything I do – as I commute to work, drop children off at school, keep house and speak with my neighbors.

May my life be a living example and may others see Christ in me.

There are many that are hurting in this world – may I be a salve to someone today Lord, in a way that I can’t even imagine.

May my words be seasoned with salt and minister grace to all that hear.

May my actions be aligned with your Word.

I pray for wisdom that is peaceable, gentle, and approachable, with lots of mercy and fairness. You said an unlimited supply of wisdom is available to me if I simply ask, I so humbly request for wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.

I pray for protection throughout this day; protect from harm and evil; go before me, to the left and right of me and behind me. Guide my steps so that I walk worthy of Your calling throughout this day. May I always be sensitive to Your promptings – whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction. I pray for reconciliation in families, in nations and to You.

I pray that all may come to know you and be reconciled back to You.

Poppa, you know my faults and my flaws, please forgive me for being unkind with my words and my thoughts; forgive me for being self-serving; forgive me for holding on to old wounds instead of giving them to You.

Please forgive me, Poppa. When I am overwhelmed, confused, unsure, and restless, help me run to Your Word, The Holy Bible.

May your Word come alive to me so that it is a living guide in every situation I encounter this day.

Help me, Poppa, to remember the promises of your Word and bring the right passage to my remembrance for the situation I encounter. I acknowledge Poppa that I need to spend more time with You reading and praying so that I am prepared for whatever the day brings. Poppa I know that your Word is indeed a light unto my feet and a light unto the path You have chosen for me to walk this day .

Please remove fear and anxiety. from my heart and mind . As believers You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love power and a sound mind. So when I are fearful, please remind me of Your love for me and use that love as the impetus to love others and see situations differently; may I tap into the power that you have given me, for I am never alone because You have not left me comfortless.

May Your wisdom be the underpinnings for my sound mind.

May I remember that I do not have to be anxious and when I am tempted to be anxious or worrisome, may I verbalize my concerns to you and then leave them there as You taught me to do. Worry does me no good and limits me, and You do more with my worry than I ever could. So please help me to turn all of my anxious thoughts and nerve-wracking situations over to You; to truly do that and trust that You are working. That You are working all things together for my good because You love me; that You are working in ways that I cannot comprehend because Your ways always supersede mine. And that in this working You are molding me continually into masterpieces fit for Your use.

Thank You for increasing my faith and capacity to love You by being loving towards others just as You are loving towards me.

As a child of yours Lord, I know that I am Your masterpiece though sometimes I feel so far from it. Please help me to remember my worth in You when I’m faced with challenging situations.

When I feel depressed, help me to remember that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image , a replica of You and that You loved me so much You thought that I was worth dying for.

I do not know anyone that would die for me, but Your beautiful Son, my best friend did, and I’m eternally grateful and humbled for His supreme gift of love towards me.

For the unseen, Poppa, I thank you. You are beyond understanding, You are abundant, you are mine, and I am Yours. I totally and completely submit everything in my life to You today,

I humbly request this in the name of He who humbly went to the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart, mind and feet walk hand in hand with Christ this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So Too Will You Become

But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! John 15:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Do you see the two important parts to this verse?

The first part is to remain in Jehovah. That means to have a continuous loving relationship with Him.

If someone only comes to you when they want something and give nothing in return, why would you even look at them much less grant them their desires. They are nothing more than users and abusers.

The same is true of Jehovah.

Why would He grant you your desires if you have no desire to be in a loving relationship with Him?

The second part is obeying His words.

So if the Bible, His words, tells you not to do something, like participate in homosexuality, and you do why would you expect anything from Him.

If the Bible, His word tells you to do something, like forgive someone who has offended you, why should you expect Him to grant your petition to Him?

Now it is okay to ask for personal requests like healing from a physical ailment but keep centered on the spiritual.

As Jehovah is spiritual so too will you become more spiritual than worldly in your daily life and your prayer requests. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah ( God of knowledge.Romans 11:33 ) send the best mentor there is, the Holy Spirit to teach me the proper manner in which to conduct myself as a loving obedient child of Yours. I have a deep desire to draw ever closer with You with each and every breath. I humbly beseech You in the name of Your most precious son who was obedient towards You all the way to the horrifying cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Please Teach Me To

 Jesus, please teach me to behave towards others as You do towards me, to be patient, to be kind, to be compassionate, to be respectful.

But, please bless me to be strong and firm with those who are abusive. To not tolerate their wicked behavior and to reprimand them in the same manner as You did to those who were abusive towards You.

Please Holy Spirit guide me and help me to always be a loving obedient servant to my Heavenly King.

I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Rabbi of all, Jesus Christ. Amen Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

There is No Sense Learning Them

As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should! Psalm 119:7 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Righteous: acting in an moral way and virtuous manner ( Moral: founded on the fundamental principles of right conduct rather than on legalities, enactment, or custom, concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical) ( Virtuous: conforming to moral and ethical principles; morally excellent; upright ) Dictionary. com

We are to be grateful for the blessing of being adopted into Jehovahs family.

The best manner of doing this is to live as He desires us to be. To accomplish this we must emulate Christs demeanour.

We need the Holy Spirit to teach us morality (although we all know right from wrong in its basics, He takes us ever deeper into it). As well as the tools to live it out in our daily life. As this new creation in Christ takes form in our mental, physical and spiritual being we become more and more virtuous.

This is not a one off experience but rather a lifetime commitment.

I have been following Christ for decades and He is still transforming me.

We are a work in progress all the way up to Heavens Gate where Christ will perfect us into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for s to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now, to the world that walks in darkness, this is extremely offensive. It is great to see someone walk with these qualities as long as they do not step upon that individuals toes.

When you are welcomed into Jehovahs family, you will be bitterly rejected by satans family including your family and old friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Believe me I have had plenty of experience where the very same man or woman that commends me for behavior with another becomes extremely offended and offensive when the same situation happens between them and me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (Jeremiah 23:6 The LORD Our Righteousness( for blessing me with teaching me Your inflatable righteousness and guiding me in the manner in which to incorporate it into my daily life. Thank you for helping me live this life even when it goes against the current of the politically correct in this world. I know Your righteousness leads to a more secure and better life that leads all the way to the Heavenly home You have lovingly prepared for me. I exalt You in the name of He who I love to emulate in righteous living Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Will Thank You By

 As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should! Psalm 119:7 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

 

When we live as the Holy Spirit has taught us that is a manner of praising Him.

To ignore His teachings not brings disaster to our lives but is also an insult to Him.

We praise Him by the language we use, personally I find that those who use a lot of vulgar language have small intelligence.

Our interactions with others brings praise because when others see that we live a loving holy life some are intrigued and that is the best testimony for Christ we can give.

Our behavior causes us to stand out like a sore thumb which brings attention to us. This is the candle that brings some into the fire of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

The greatest act of praise is to live as we have been taught to by the Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our teacher Psalms 31:5) for blessing me with Your awesome tutoring in the proper mannerism of child of Jehovahs to behave in.                                                                  Thank you for helping me to live this out in my daily life. I exalt You in the name of the Son who is a shining example of the proper example of a child of God to behave, 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

You Need to Give the One.

 But the loving kindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who [reverently] fear Him Psalm 103:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version                                                

To fear in this instance means to respect. To revere means to respect in awe and means to be lovingly obedient. Therefore you need to give the one in order to receive the other.

Think of it, have you ever given something to someone who is not only ungrateful but demanding?

I find the one goes with the other.

Not only are they ungrateful but they demand more and more while giving you nothing in return. Just ask most parents of adult children and grandparents today and they will tell you how that feels.

How much more is it insulting for you to behave in this disgusting behaviour towards our loving Heavenly Father?

The only time you talk with Him is when you want something from Him. You never say thank you and you never give Him anything in return.

Why would He bless you?

On the other hand, there are the children that are grateful to their parents for their help, are willing to help them and respect them.

Ask any parent of an adult child how it feels to have a child like that. How much more delightful do you think it feels for Jehovah to have such a treasure of a child like that?

Do you not think it brings Him great delight to bless a child like that?

Which one are you?

Be respectful to He who has an everlasting love for you. It came at a great cost. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our most loving Father) for blessing me with adopting me into Your Divine family. I relish spending quality time with You my Father, Jesus my big brother and the Holy Spirit my mentor every day. I deeply appreciate Your Heavenly love and You accepting mine. In the greatest acclimation I thank You in my reverential big brothers name Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.
