I know an elderly lady that for health reasons can no longer eat the foods she once enjoyed. If she eats those foods she gets violently sick. So, it is like a battle between the mind and the body. The body says do not eat this or else you will get violently sick. The mind says up yours. I am going to do what ever I want to do. Then when the body rebels, they blame everybody but themselves. This is a daily routine with her.
As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly. Proverbs 26:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Her son makes nutritious, delicious foods that she should be eating but she steadfastly refuses to eat them. It constantly amazes him.
Doing wrong is fun for a fool, but living wisely brings pleasure to the sensible. Proverbs 10:23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Does that though not sound familiar?
How many times does our Father in Heaven bless us with advice and we reject it because we want something else. Then when we pay the penalty we blame everyone but ourselves. Jehovah is far wiser than us and loves us. So, His advice is for our own good.
“Wise men don’t need advice. Fools won’t take it.” Benjamin Franklin
When it discussed with her friends ( some of who claim to be Christians ) they just laugh at me and encourage her to just go out and do what she wants to. When the son explains that that will make her sick they just laugh at me again and they make jokes about it. Some of these so called friends are health care professionals. They should know better.
Although, I certainly would not consider their advice to be neither wise nor helpful.
“A wise man may look ridiculous in the company of fools.” Thomas Fuller
Please do not chose to walk down the path of stupidity. It is filled with pain and misery.
Prayer: Thank you Poppa for blessing me with the best mentor The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher 2 Timothy 3:16 ) to guide me along the path of life You have chosen for me to take all the way to Heavens Gate. May I never be foolish enough to believe I am smarter than Him and ignore His advice.
I praise You in the name of the wisest of all Rabbis Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the willingness to be obedient unto the best mentors guidance, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
One of the lies satan uses on us to defeat us is bringing up our past failures to condemn us. Because of these he will try to convince us we are not good enough to belong to Jehovahs family.
He is most effective by using those that know our past and like to tear others down. They take special delight in doing this in public to satisfy their wicked, perverted pleasures.
When they try this evil method with me, I do not shrink back in shame but gladly agree with them. Then, I joyfully share how Jesus has washed that filth from me and has made me clean. Oh what a wonderful gift that is and makes my heart dance for joy.
Then, I ask them if they have repented of any wicked sins they have committed. You know, like taking perverted pleasure in trying to cause shame to an innocent victim in public. They are enraged because they are full of pride. And I have just kicked them off of their high horse, with the help of The Holy Spirit. In public and now the shame is on them.
Jesus’ blood has washed away my condemnation and shame. Oh what freedom there is in forgiven sins. Oh what joy there is in His forgiveness. Oh what love there is in He who has smashed my chains of guilt and set me free. Joseph a son of Jehovah
When you surrender and confess yours He will do the same for you.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves Psalm 20:9 ) when I repent of my sins You are quick to forgive me.
Thank you for the opportunities to share this blessing in public.
For sending The Holy Spirit to twist the condemnation of the wicked to a wonderful opportunity to share Your amazing grace with others.
I praise you in Your most graceful name. Amen
May you never waste an opportunity to share Chris amazing grace with others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” James 2:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Being a Christian means having faith and surrendering.
Faith means to trust.
When we surrender our will to Christ then The Holy Spirit slowly transforms us more and more to posses the same character as the one we love, Jesus Christ.
And, what was the character of Jesus Christ?
The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others. Matthew 20: 28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
You cannot be a Christian without serving Christ by serving others. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Now because you are Jesus Christs servant you must not go out and serve where you like. Jesus has a specific place and manner for you to serve.
And, you cannot serve Christ without suffering like Jesus.
The Holy Spirit will guide you to places you would rather not go and to serve in a manner in which you would rather not serve.
He has done it with me for over forty years. Yes there was a lot of suffering. I rejoice in it all because number one, through my service unto the one I love many been brought to Him.
Two, through the suffering it has bonded us as close as if bonded by crazy glue.
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: 10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Through it all, men and women noticed I stuck out like a pimple on a nose.
That is because I emulated Christs character as we spent much time together. My favorite of course our walks and talks in nature.
They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
You emulate what or who you love. Joseph a son of Jehovah
This is the sermon that should be preached with fire and passion in churches today. If it were, then, we would have revivals like the Welsh revival.
Prayer: Oh my wonderful Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) thank you for giving me the honor of being a student under the tutelage of The Holy Spirit who teaches me about the attributes of my cherished Jesus Christ.
Thank you the He does an amazing job in molding me to emulate Him so that I can live as He live.
My heart dance with exuberant joy as I praise You in His wonderful name. Amen
May you shed your fleshly desire and submit to the most amazing craftsman in the universe as He shapes you into a child of Jehovah like Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah
