The Best Investment.

loving to each other

Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. Mark 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jesus took time out of His busy day to show love to children, should we not imitate Him every day?

How much quality time do you spend with your children?

At meal time (irregardless of whether it is breakfast or dinner) do you sit around the table and talk, cementing your bonds, or do you all sit there with you mugs pasted in front of the idiot box (TV)?

Do you help them with their homework, class projects or go to parent teacher meeting with them?

Do you tuck them into bed and read them bedtime stories them kiss them good night and tell them you love them (that was my personal favorite)?

On the weekend do you do things with them like go to the park or watch a family movie and then talk about it?

You are the potter, they are the mold, what type of vessel are you creating?

Children learn more by watching then listening. What do they see when they see you?

Children learn more by watching then listening. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same goes for teachers.

At the beginning of each semester I would tell my classes: “I am your teacher. I will work hard for you to be the best teacher for you. You will work hard for me because you love me.” Then I proceeded to prove it. At first they thought I was nuts. After about a month, they were my babies and they knew it. They loved their teacher because they saw their teacher loved them (Kinda like Jesus taught me. We love Him because He loved us first.). I believe what I taught them about love will stay with them all of their lives.

“Children will not remember you for the material things you have provided, but for the feeling that you cherished them.” –Richard L. Evans

Children are Gods gift to you, nurture them properly like you would a garden for you are sowing the seeds of the future. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same goes for those who are new children in the family of Jehovah. You are to love them as if they were your own children and dedicate yourself to their well being and maturity in Christ as you would your own children.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with all the marvelous teachers You have sent my way. Thank you for guiding me to emulate the greatest Teacher, Jesus. May I inspire all those You bring to me to become loving obedient children of Yours so as to enrich Your treasure in Heaven (to be surrounded by even more loving children of Yours). I meekly ask of this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Have You Ever Worked For

GREATEST CONTENTMENT

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever worked for the nit pickers before?

Nit picker are those that no matter how good your work is they can always find something wrong with it. They take all the steam out of your desire to excel at what you are doing. This is a real tragedy when the nit pickers are parents.

It takes a lot of work and therapy to get over their poison they inject into their childrens impressionable minds.

Teachers can have the same short term affect.

When I do work I like to step back and ask my Heavenly Father if He is pleased with what has been done.

Most times He is and there is a warm feeling of satisfaction flowing through me.

When He isn’t there is no scolding. He just redirects my effort and then I step back and marvel at what we have accomplished and gratefully thank Him. There has been numerous times when He guides me to do something that I have no desire to do but do it with great gusto to please Him, which gives immeasurable pleasure to me.                                   

Most times when the project is completed I see what He was doing and the finished project looks fantastic even though it looked stupid and was laughed at by others or looked ugly but was beautiful when completed.

Sometimes we will not see the purpose of His task until we enter our Heavenly home. That is okay though because we take satisfaction in knowing what we did pleased our Heavenly King in the here and now.

Work for Jehovah, not man. It is appreciated so much more. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the esteem of being Your humble, obedient, loyal servant. It is the greatest delight that can be offered to me. I exalt You in the name of the King of Kings 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.

This is a Just Punishment

THE DEVIOUS REWARD

For But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble and sin[by leading him away from My teaching], it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone [as large as one turned by a donkey] hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version           

Perhaps Jesus warning here is so severe because children are so impressionable, they are easy to influence. This is a just punishment for teaching lies that pollute the mind and entice it to sin, many times the sin becomes a destructive habit.

In my country they are teaching the lies that homosexuality is normal and okay to practice. I believe there is a special place in Hell for those teaching this satanic filth. I do not say that as a curse but rather because I believe that is how much it infuriates Jehovah. The more severe the sin, the harsher the punishment. They are also preaching disgusting lies like you can be anything you want to be if you just put your mind to it. This is directly contrary to what Jesus informs us.

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You cannot be politically correct and Christ correct. Choose wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) smack these wicked perverts that are destroying the minds of the innocent and luring them into a filthy destructive lifestyle. May Your strong hand punish them in an appropriate manner. I request this in the name of the mighty King that shall cast them into Hell where they belong Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

It is a Dangerous Lie.

                    

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His[One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I hear so many preachers repeat this mantra to the masses: believe that God loves them unconditionally.

Please do not preach nor teach this filthy lie. In doing so you are condemning many to Hell. And I am sure you will answer for that. That is a dangerous lie.

So you think a pimp that forces young girls into prostitution will be unconditionally loved by Christ and allowed into Heaven?

Do you believe that some drug pusher that lives off of others misery will be unconditionally loved by God?

Do you believe these musilms that chop off Christians heads or burn them alive will be welcomed into Heaven?

Do you believe that any Sunday Christian who only makes a show of being a Christian on Sunday while living in the world the rest of the week will be welcomed at Heaven gate?

Do you believe the “gimmis” (those that only talk with Jehovah when they want something from Him; gimme this, gimme that” will be welcomed at Heavens Gate?

The more you read your Bible the more you will see conditions.

If.

If you obey my commands you will be blessed, if you refuse to obey them you will be cursed. This is in both the New Testament and the Old Testament.

As in any family there are rules and they must be obeyed.

“If you [really] love Me, you will keep and obey My commandments. John 14:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In Christ’s family the obedient ones gain a Heavenly home. The disobedient ones are condemned to a Hellish one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) bless me to wisely, gracefully teach those misguided children that there is no free entry into the gates of Heaven but the privilege is only gained by being an obedient servant unto You our Heavenly King. In Your majestic name I humbly pray. Amen

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

They are going to Have a Feast.

                                     

The eye that mocks a father And scorns a mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out, And the young vultures will devour it. Proverbs 30:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

From what I have seen being a live in care giver for my mom and a volunteer at a seniors home I would say they are going to have a feast.

So many of all ages gleefully throw their elderly or handicapped parents into a hell hole called a seniors home. I know most are very good at the level of care they provide but the living environment leaves much to be desired. I have seen many only come to visit when they want money and then treat their mother scornfully (to scorn means open dislike and disrespect or derision often mixed with indignation. To treat them with derision means the use of ridicule to show contempt and contempt means a strong dislike. I have seen many children and grandchildren treat their mothers like they had the plague. And, indignation means to be angry. The children and grandchildren are angry because their mother is still alive because they want her money in their inheritance. To mock means to to treat with contempt or ridicule. I have seen many make fun of their fathers infirmity in their elder years.

I have seen children blackmail their parents “If you want me to come and help you, you have to pay me.” If you want me to bring the grandchildren over you have to give me money.” This is all disgusting in the eyes of the Lord and they shall pay severely.

Now granted many parents were abusive to their children but we are to forgive them, that does not mean we are not to hold them accountable. If they refuse to repent, which means admit what they did, admit it was wrong, apologize and stop doing it, then we are to have nothing to do with them. If reconciliation is not important to them then it should not be important to us.

However to abuse them when they are in need is just as wrong in Jehovahs eyes.

That does not mean ravens will actually pluck out their eyes but that they will pay for their abhorrent behavior.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) just as you lovingly care for me instill in my heart a desire and will to be respectful, loving and caring to my parent so as to bring glory to You. I humbly request this in the name of Your most loving, respectful son Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Known by His Deeds.  

Even a child is known by his deeds, Whether what he does is pure and right. Proverbs 20:11 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

When I was a teacher sometimes the children would misbehave. When I went to punish them they pleaded not to be punished and promised not to be naughty again. I agreed not to punish them if they would behave. Not even five minutes later they would be little monsters again. When I reminded them of their promise they laughed in my face and refused to acknowledge their promise. That is when the hammer came down and they received worse punishment. That quickly put a permanent end to that unacceptable behavior.

They knew what they were doing was wrong.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

I see it so often today when children are delinquent and the liberal judges let them off. This is wrong. Let the punishment fit the crime otherwise they just get worse.

You can bet with the teenagers when they are terrible you can trace it back to their childhood and lack of discipline in the family and in the schools. Then when they become adults they foolishly believe they can do what ever they want and there is no retribution for their behavior.

Most times they are disrespectful on their own initiatives.

Do not tell me it is not their fault it is societies fault, I did not make them do it. Do not tell me it is because they are poor, some of the most respectful folks I have ever met were dirt poor, do not tell me it is the families fault, I have met many respectful families whose children are little monsters and a heavy burden on the parents.

It does not matter how good or bad parents raise their children it is the childrens choices in their lives and the decisions they make will come back to either bless them or curse them. Joseph a son of Jehovah           

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless me to wisely teach the youth of today wisdom, integrity and righteous morals so as to avoid Your terrible judgement. I sincerely request this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Will Guide You.

                                      

But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you. John 16:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Holy Spirit is the best guide in every aspect of our lives. He has lead me through four uncharted territories in my decades long walk with Him. Each one was preparing me for the next.

Being a country boy I had no desire to move to the big city yet it was there He took me. While there He guided me to learn about natural medicine and first aid. As well He taught me about the Trinity and planted the seeds for our tree of love to grow and bare fruit. This knowledge held me in good steed while tree planting.

The next uncharted territory He led me to was tree planting. It was there that He taught me how to care for and about others. Most of my co-workers came from divorced families and they were unloved. I was the first one to ever love them and care about them. Again He also taught me about His majesty and grandeur there as well as His power, provision and protection.

This knowledge held me in good steed for the next uncharted territory He was leading me to which was teaching in Asia.

Most children there have never been loved nor respected by their parents. They had no one to confide in with their problems. The skills the Holy Spirit taught me in those tree planting camps was put to ample good use. The children felt loved, cared for, cared about, safe and secure in my class.

As well, the Holy Spirit was preparing me there for the next unknown territory. The majority of Asian I have met were narcissists. Under the Holy Spirits tutorship I learned how to properly deal with them.

This was preparing me for when I had to come home to be a live in care giver for my mom when she became disabled. My family was and is extremely narcissistic. The lessons learned in Asia has and still does hold me in good steed.

During the course of these travels I have learned to have more and more confidence and security in the Holy Spirits guidance.

I do not know where the next unknown territory is or if there is any more but I know the One, oh so very well, who will be guiding me is worthy of my complete and total trust.

“I know not the way God leads me, but well do I know my Guide.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit as my guide throughout all of my life. I praise You in Your awesome name. 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.

A Posture of Defiance.

But the God who holds in His hand your breath of life and your ways you have not honored and glorified [but have dishonored and defied]. Daniel 5:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is the old: “You do not tell me what I can do or what I cannot do.” That is what intentional sin is. That is arrogant and proud. It is also stupid.

Jehovah only lays out the groundwork for life for us. He is not some dictator in the sky but a loving Father that only wants the best for us.

So, just as a good parent tells their children they must not eat too much candy or they will get sick so too does Jehovah guide us on what not to do.

Just as a good parent tells their children to eat their vegetables because it is good for their health so too does Jehovah tell us what is the right thing to do for our own good.

When you refuse to do as Jehovah directs you to do there will be consequences, not by His hand but by your own arrogance and stupidity.

He will only tolerate such behaviour for so long and then He will walk away from you. When that happens look out because nothing but trouble and hard times are coming your way with the ultimate consequence being eternal damnation in Hell.

“Sin is not an unfortunate slip or a regrettable act; it is a posture of defiance against a holy God.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive unto Your wise voice so that I am a loving obedient child unto You. I know that Your instruction is for my own good. I humbly request this in the name of Your Holy Son whom was always attentive and obedient unto Your voice Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Mine is the Best Daddy.

God loves each of

 

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:  who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:12-13 New King James Version

When we were physically born some of us may have been blessed with great dads while some may not have been.

 

When, by Gods grace, we are adopted into Jehovahs holy family we are blessed with the best daddy there every was, is and will be.

He loves us as no other can, His advice is the wisest ever given, His strength and power is unmatched. His care and provisions can not be matched.

So do you lovingly, appreciatively and respectfully thank Him every day for being the best daddy for you?

I do and I bless Him for all the numerous blessing He showers upon me , great and small, through out the day as well.

 

Prayer: Oh my most awesome Abba (God our father) I deeply wish I could hug You, kiss You and thank You for Your awesome gift of adopting me into Your magnificent holy family. As that is not possible please accept Your humble child’s love, adoration, respect and praise. I meekly ask this in the name of Your most special son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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