I start my day every day going to the greatest councilor.
“Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the Kingdom of God, will be repaid many times over in this life, and will have eternal life in the world to come.” Luke 18: 29- 30 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
This is the best retirement investment there is.
When we give up everything for Christ, He will give us everything we need to live a comfortable life in our elder years. Joseph a son of Jehovah
I have made plans for my retirement that went up in smoke.
There was land purchased in my younger years that was taken away from me to by the politically correct. I lost all my dreams when I lost that.
Then I fell for what I now believe were scams by an investment company and went broke. Being a slow learner, it took three times before understanding that investment was a scam. Again my dreams were shattered.
When I dedicated my life to service unto our Heavenly King He sent me all over the world serving under very strenuous circumstances with little materially to show for the years of effort. There was deep concern that my final years would be spent living the paupers life with nothing to show for decades of service as old age crept in.
It was taken to my Heavenly Love and He reassured me with Bible verse after Bible verse for about three hours that He would bless me in this life as well as our eternal one.
One night Jesus gave me a dream that I was walking down a dark deserted street and was homeless. Then a rich man came to me and softly demanded I follow Him. He took me to an apartment that had nice clothes in it, the apartment was nice and there was food in the refrigerator and in the cupboards. Then He informed me that as long as I was obedient unto Him I would never be homeless, wear rags or have an empty belly.
He has been true to His word then, I am sure He is good for it now that the elder years are creeping ever faster in this old boys life.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense. Job 11:20 ) that even though it looks like I am being a sucker and many times being abused in my service unto You, I believe Your promise to me to always take care of me including when I am in Your beautiful Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. It is in Your wonderful name I thank you. Amen
May you be blessed daily with the faith in our Heavenly provider that He always provides for all your needs. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many of the people who were with Mary believed in Jesus when they saw this happen. But some went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. John 11: 45-46 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Even after Jesus rose the dead there were still those who witnessed it that refused to accept Him as the Messiah.
Imagine seeing someone rise out of a coffin and say lets go for a pizza after Jesus commanded them to arise. Would you still doubt that He was indeed the Christ?
Yet, here they were, running like lapdogs squealing on Jesus as if He just did something naughty.
Men and women reject Christ because they refuse to submit to Him. They are afraid of surrendering their life to Him. They fear men more than they do the Son of Man.
Men and women refuse to accept Christ because they are too busy worshipping themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Then, how can we expect those with hard hearts to accept Him no matter how hard we try.
I say, if they will not listen to The Holy Spirit, they most certainly will not listen to us.
So, do not take it personally when others reject you when you try to introduce them to Jesus.
Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jesus Yasha ( Lord my Savior – Isaiah 49:26 ) it rips me heart apart when others reject you and it is so hard to walk away from them knowing there is nothing I can say or do to accept You as their Savior. I weep with You in Your Beautiful name. Amen
May you always be wise enough to accept Christ as your Savior Joseph a son of Jehovah

Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” Luke 6:38 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I like Jehovahs investment plans. They are not like societies investment plans of gimme, gimme, gimme.
So many today foolishly believe that they are entitled and that we owe them because of their sexuality, colour, religion or sexual preference.
Then, there are the financial institutions that are quick to accept your money but good luck on getting it out, read service charges out of your ying yang which to me is legal thievery.
And, of course , there is the biggest bandits of all, the government. How many times do we pay for services and get substandard service in return, read we have a legal system not a justice system, look at our schools,. Then there is the fun of collecting unemployment insurance when you are laid off or compensation when you are hurt at work.
With Jehovah you get what you give.
No freeloaders allowed. If you give nothing, you receive nothing. If you give a little, you receive a little. If you give generously, you shall receive generously.
“God has given us two hands: one to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for giving.” Billy Graham
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for Your abundant graces You bless me with through out the day. Please bless me with the opportunities to share them where You guide me to with as much joy to share them as it is to receive them. I exalt You and beseech You in the name of Your greatest blessing in my life, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May you be blessed with twice as many opportunities to share as you have to receive this day and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.” 2 Chronicles 20:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Oh Boy, how many times has this been my experience.
When a teenager, I thought I was going to go insane. All the relatives wanted me to do different things with my life. Being a people pleaser was impossible but it was given a hard try. All was met with failure and huge guilt on my behalf because of everyone calling me a failure.
Thankfully the Lord guided me to a city far from them and slowly taught me to please Him rather than folks.
Whenever there was a fork in the road to Heaven with no knowledge of which to take there was only one smart thing to do; get on my knees and pray. By Jehovahs blessings The Holy Spirit always guided me to the proper road to take. Slowly over the decades He guided me more and more. Through this I became more and more sensitive to His voice. He has never led me wrong.
The Holy Spirit is the answer man to all of lives problems. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer : Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit Kal El (voice of God) Isaiah 30:21 ) to speak with me and guide me in every aspect of my life to give glory to You and bless me with a fulfilling life. I laud You in the name of the greatest Sheppard, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with ears that are attentive to The Holy Spirits voice and feet to follow the path He guides for you to travel on your journey to Heaven Joseph a son of Jehovah
“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.” Romans 8:1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
So many that are suffering from drug addiction and alcoholism are suffering from something deeper and more painful.
It is abuse by parents when we were children. We never recover and kill the pain with booze and drugs.
This of course only makes the situation worse, not better.
When we surrender to the healing power of Christ, He will free us from this pain.
Sometimes it will happen instantly but most times it takes years of Christian counselling.
It is painful but well worth it.
As we are freed from the prison of abuse we surrender our addictions and because we trust Christ as our Saviour, those sins are forgiven. We belong to Him now, not the past that haunts and torments us . The power of the Holy Spirit sets us free.
We may, and most do, suffer from painful memories all their lives but each time this happens, The Holy Spirit comes and comforts and encourages us.
The Holy Spirit frees us from all prisons in our lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer : Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka ( God our healer Jeremiah 30:17 ) for healing the painful wounds from my past and setting me free from the prison of addiction that was destroying my life. I extol Thee in the name of He who frees all prisoners, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed to be set free from your dungeon by the greatest freedom fighter of all Jesus Christ. Amen
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Jehovah is perfect, He never makes mistakes.
So, when you hear the warped perverted voices in society say that it is a woman in a mans body that is saying Jehovah did not know what He was doing.
That is satanic.
If it is true that a man can become a woman why is it that their chromosomes are still mens after the sex change and women are cry babying in sports that it is unfair (which it is because they are not women but men who have defiled their God given body by changing it into something it was not meant to be).
Do you notice that the majority of those wanting a sex change are boys?
How many girls do you see wanting to become boys?
Could it be because of men haters in the so called womens lib (which is not liberation but domination over men and filled with men haters) urge the boys to become a woman?
Accept the manner in which Jehovah created you to be. To do otherwise is destroying a beautiful creation and is an insult to God. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Oh my adorable Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28) – The LORD Creator ) how I wish I could comfort Your precious weeping heart when You witness the perverted in this warped world desecrate the beautiful creation have made into a lie. Because I love You so dearly I know what grieves You, grieves me. Please accept my compassion for You in the name of the most compassionate of all, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed to accept what Jehovah has created you to be while rejecting what the perverted tried to con you into believing what you were not made to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah
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
When we call out in sincerity unto Jehovah, He will answer our prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah
