The Recycle Man

do not allow them to control you

Today I am grateful that the Lord had me sleep in as late as He did. Normally I get up early in the morning, however, today I slept in. This was a blessing.

Moms nephew came for a visit and was gone by the time I came in the house (I sleep out in our Tabernacle, a tent, which is where I enjoy communion with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit every day).

He is nothing but trouble. He is a drug abuser, drunk, thief and trouble maker. She for some strange reason likes him. I would not spit on the best side of him if he had one.  I praise the Lord for the gift of extra pleasant sleep in order to avoid a spawn of the devil.

 

 

Every year I like to make Christmas cards out of photo’s of our cats (everybody adores them and really looks forward to receiving them) and share them with friends and important overworked  and underappreciated folks in our community.

These include police officers, doctors, nurses, personal support workers, fire fighters, ambulance attendants and the garbage collectors.

As well, I make a point to give special ones to pastors and Christian councilors (I believe they are the most over worked and under appreciated of them all.

The week before Christmas and the week after I forgot to give the recycle man his Christmas card and gift.

Today when looking out the widow I saw his truck drive by. He drives to the end of the street, turns around and collects the other side. I quickly got his gifts and card and dashed out to give them to him. He was very happy and we enjoyed a great conversation.

I am grateful for the Lord having me look out the window at that precise time and reminding me about the Christmas gift and card.

loving to each other

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God provides) for providing me the opportunity to enjoy sleep rather than endure being in the presence of a wicked one.

Thank you my love for providing me with the opportunity to share some cheer with another to bring glory to Your Holy name.

I praise You in the name of He who refrained being the the presence of the wicked ones and who gladly enjoyed sharing with others Jesus Christ. Amen

Stay away from wicked men less they pollute your soul and take you to Hell with them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Giving unto others enriches not only them but you as well. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Stand at the Door.

voice of god

Behold, I stand at the door and continually knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him (restore him), and he with Me. Revelation 3:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jesus comes a knocking, it is beneficial to us if we open the door. When He enters our hearts He begins a life long process of molding us to emulate Him. The more He reveals of Himself and our Heavenly Father and our Wise Teacher (the Holy Spirit) to us the deeper our will be to come closer to Him.

It is interesting after we have walked with Him for a while how much He has subtly changes our preferences in life unbeknownst to us.

When we reflect back on our past we are shocked at the things we did and believed in.

It is quite interesting when we move away from our community we were raised in and come home after a few years and folks are shocked by how much we have changed. The old things are actually detestable to us and the things we desire those that knew us cannot understand. We feel like an alien amongst our family and old friends.

We are all born into the world. It is Christ that comes unto us. If we accept His invitation then we will spend a lifetime where he makes Himself more appealing and the world more distasteful. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with bringing the Holy Spirit to work with me a make over of my mind and spirit to create in me the beautiful child You know I am capable of being. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood washed my filth away Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Talk About Arrogant.

 Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive.  And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’  Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there.  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).”’ Luke 12:16-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Talk about arrogant.

This guy takes full credit while giving Jehovah none.

Did the rich man make the land fertile and productive or did Jehovah?

Than should the rich man not have given thanks unto Jehovah and share with the less fortunate as Jehovah shared with him?

Who determines when we die, the rich man or Jehovah?

Than should he not have used his time wisely to store up treasures in Heaven rather that sit on his laurels?

Should he not have given unto his community as Jehovah greatly gave unto him?

Did the rich man celebrate his good fortune with others or did he greedily keep his parties for himself?

Should we not share with others our good fortune as Jehovah as blessed us with them?

How about you?

Do you share in your blessings ,both great and small, with others or do you greedily keep them for yourself?

Do you publicly praise Jehovah for His graciousness towards you or do you brag about it as if it was you who did the accomplishment?

Do you waste your retirement years going on cruises or other luxuries or do you take this opportunity to share your time and wisdom with the younger generation?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with all of the abundant mental, physical and spiritual gifts provided for me on a daily basis.

May these be used as an opportunity to give thanks to You both privately and publicly and to be used to help those in Your family that are in need.

I joyfully give all praise unto You and request this blessing in the name of He who always used His Divine gifts for the benefit of others Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Christ Says

                                       

Let each one give [thoughtfully and with purpose] just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver [and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift].2 Corinthians 9:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see so many that have houses yet rent lockers to shove their stuff in. Yet they are not satisfied in life.

I have seen many who walk all over everyone to get one inch ahead of the other fellow, yet there is no satisfaction in their live.

I see those who freely and generously give of their time, money and heart to the community. They are the most wealthy folks I have ever met.

If given the choice between the material or the spiritual riches, choose the spiritual. It has more satisfaction and lasts and eternity.

“The world says, The more you take, the more you have. Christ says, the more you give, the more you are.” Frederick Buechner

Prayer: Thank you Jeovah El Roi ( “God Who Sees”) for blessing me with bountiful opportunities to become wealthy beyond my wildest dreams. It is the most significant treasure of all and that is love for it is the truest treasure of all. Thank you that You see this adoring child of Yours spread this treasure lavishly upon others and in so doing give glory unto You who deserve it the most. In so doing it enriches both my body and spirit. Oh I give all glory unto You my Love. I exalt Thee in the name of the most loving treasure of all Jesus Christ. Amen May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Did My Soul Become.

                                                  

 The one who is taught the word [of God] is to share all good things. Galatians 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This is something I believe is needed in our society today. Instead of the me generation we need to be teaching the younger generation the We Generation.

So many folks are chasing after pleasure in the material world only to discover that there is an emptiness inside them. That emptiness is love for others.

I do not know of any who volunteer in the community that suffers depression.

The greatest treasure is the richness of the heart. The only way to enrich yourself in this treasure is to give it away. The more you give away the greater your treasure will be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

As well, when the community is involved in doing volunteer work within the community there will be less vandalism because folks have invested time in the community. So if people volunteer to do clean up in a park they are less likely to vandalize it. When they go and cut the grass or shovel the snow out of a needy neighbours property they will be less likely to vandalize it or do a break and enter there.

The less I spent on myself, the more I gave to others, the fuller of happiness and blessing did my soul become. –Hudson Taylor Prayer:

Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with teaching me how to be loving towards others and then providing me with ample opportunities to exhibit Your divine love within my local community. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was and is the perfect example of love Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. It is in our greatest time of need that we grow the closest to Christ.

A Curse Upon Nations.

                                                                                                                    

I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk [that is, to live each and every day] in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments (precepts), so that you will live and multiply, and that the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you will not hear and obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you will certainly perish. Deuteronomy 30:16-18 Holy Bible Amplified Version         

I see it in every nation, folks have turned their backs on Jehovah and even mock Him. They do so at their own peril.                                 

If you look at the dirty thirties the roaring twenties preceded it.        

In the roaring twenties it was anything goes (except worshiping Jehovah of course). Yes there was a lot of drinking but there was also a lot of premarital sex,worshiping the occult, and crime. It was an eat drink and be merry attitude.                                                               

I firmly believe that is why the dirty thirties was a curse upon nations. The roaring twenties pale in comparison to the wickedness which premetes every society today. As such the disaster which is but a breath away shall come like a world wide explosion like a exploding volcano which destroys everything in its path.                                                    

 “And what greater calamity can fall upon a nation than the loss of worship.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) bless me with the Holy Spirit’s guidance and strength to educate the lost in the  around me so as to bring them into Your Holy community. I truly mourn over the destructive path they are walking in and desire them to change direction into Your Holy Path. I ask this in the name of the guiding light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

That is Our Golden Years.

For to me, to live is Christ [He is my source of joy, my reason to live] and to die is gain [for I will be with Him in eternity]. Philippians 1:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Even though I was living a comfortable life by the worlds standards there was something missing. There was a lot of volunteer work in the community but there was something missing. There was a huge hole in my heart for love, joy and purpose. It stayed that way for many years.

I have lived both the life of worldly luxury and the world of Christly extravagance and I chose Christ’s over the world every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Then, slowly after my live was committed unto Christ the hole became smaller and smaller until it was non-exsistant. It was replaced by a meaning in life: being a free will servant of my Heavenly King, Jesus Christ. He was my reason to live. There was Heavenly joy in my heart which is uncomparable to the empty happiness offered by the world. The Divine love between Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and I share is uncombarable to anything the world has to offer. Now I am truly living in my golden years.

When we live moment by moment in Christs love, that is our golden years. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with Divine meaning in my life and Your Divine love and joy in my heart. I exalt You in the name of my best friend whose companionship I cherish Jesus Christ. Amen

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