Poured Out My Wrath On

                                   

As silver is melted in the furnace, so will you be melted in the midst of it; and you will know [without any doubt] that I the Lord have poured out My wrath on you [O Israel].’” Ezekiel 22:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Yes, Jehovahs patience only lasts so long. And, when it is exhausted look out. He knows how to hand out the appropriate punishment and it is severe.

If we are smart we repent of our offences and the and His heavy hand is lifted.

For the not so bright and the arrogant He delivers the ultimate punishment unto them. He turns His back on them and then His punishment will seem enjoyable compared to what transpires when He turns His back on you.

Just as you turn your back on Christ, so too will He turn His back on you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Because Jehovah is love, it is impossible for Him to do anything bad. But, He will see disaster coming your way and will not warn you (why should He, you refuse to listen anyway).

I believe we all experience Jehovahs wrath, both those inside His family and those outside of it, After all, we are still mortals and sometimes succumb to fleshly desires. The difference is that those inside His family repent, like David did and are forgiven (although we must still suffer the consequences of our foolish actions). Those outside of the family, their lives at first slowly and then in time accelerates into complete disaster and a living Hell.

Prayer: Oh please Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless those with whom You are putting through the furnace to not abandon You less they suffer the ultimate judgement which is an eternity in damnation in Hell. I plead their case in the whose blood washes all of their filthy condemnable sins Jesus Christ. Amen

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

They are Still Alive.

In Hades (the realm of the dead), being in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom (paradise). Luke 16:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In all of Jesus’ parables He always explained what they meant but here we do not see any explanation. That is because in the Old Testament it was explained numerous times the life after death . That there is a place where the spirit goes after death. It is not Heaven or Hell but a place where the spirit awaits final judgment. Therefore those that have died, they are still alive in spirit. The Jews knew this so there was no need for Jesus to explain it to them.

This also shows the charlatans that claim they can talk with the dead.

Jehovah places them in that place where they shall remain until the Day of Judgment.

There is no communion with the dead with the living.

It also shows how those that claim that all those who die go to a pleasant place after death. They claim there is no punishment for the wicked ones deeds in his life on earth.

When we die there is still a continuing of life in the spirit. One is a place of pleasant experience, the other other one of torment.

The question is which place are you going to spend time in until the final judgment.

Then Abraham breathed his last and he died at a good old age, an old man who was satisfied [with life]; and he was gathered to his people [who had preceded him in death]. Genesis 25:8Holy Bible Amplified Version

This states that Abraham went to his people. How could he go there if there is no living spirits to go to?

“Oh, that You would hide me in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead) Job 14:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

To the people of the Old Testament Sheol is a place where the spirit goes which means that death does not terminate human existence.

So yes brothers and sisters, your loved ones, they are still alive, not physically but spiritually. No we cannot talk with them nor they with us.

If they died in Christ that should fill us with joy because we will see them in Heaven when we get there and we shall know them and they shall know us. Think of someone dear to you that has gone on a journey and has been gone for a year or more. Think of how your heart dances for joy when they come home and you have not seen them for a long time. That is what it will be like when we are reunited with them in Heaven.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless me with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and strength to educate others that there is eternal damnation for those who reject you. On the other hand I daily eagerly anticipate dwelling in Your house for eternity and being in Your loving presence of infinity. I humbly ask 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.

Reliable and Trustworthy.

 

The law of the Lord is perfect (flawless), restoring and refreshing the soul; The statutes of the Lord are reliable and trustworthy, making wise the simple. Psalm 19:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In mans laws there is so many escape clauses for the wicked. Everyone is equal under Gods Law. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Sadly we see all too frequently that there seems to be one law for the rich and one law for everybody else. We see too much of liberals allowing criminals to go free in society to habitually continue there evil ways. It angers us and breaks our hearts.

In Jehovahs Law there is no escape clauses and those that break His law face His divine punishment. There is no plea bargaining nor parole.

Oh we are forgiven when we repent but must still face the punishment. It is fair and just. That restores our faith in true justice and refreshes our spirits.

Do not think that His justice will be done right away.

Sometimes it takes decades.

I have seen it in the lives of many and their pitiful existence in their own damnation. It breaks the heart to see them suffer but also faith that justice is being served.

The precepts of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. Psalm 19:7,8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Obeying Jehovahs Law brings peace, love and joy to the heart. Obeying your own law only brings misery, agony and war to the heart. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We receive more enlightenment of Jehovahs Law the more we obey Him. It brings joy to our hearts because we see a loving Father that only wants what is best for us. Many times we are selfish but when we are obedient unto His laws we see the destructive lifestyle we avoid when going down that destructive path. We see that His way is the only way.

A knowledge of the Bible without a college education is more valuable than a college education without the Bible.” Professor William Lyon Phelps

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with a Divine education in Your Holy School of Righteousness. Thank you with blessing me with the strength to implement Your teachings into my daily life. It has prevented much hardship and sorrow. I exalt Thee in the King of Righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which One Comes From You?

  And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;  and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jehovah assigns as difficult task for you to do are you obstinate, stomp your feet and say I refuse like a spoiled little brat? Even though He reasons with you with His Word, Christian Councilors and signs.

Or, if He directs you to stop doing something do you obstinacy refuse?

Beware.

Jehovah only does what is for your good. So, if you refuse to listen to Him, you will pay greatly in the long run.

I have seen many obstinate folks refuse to listen and slowly sink deeper and deeper into a living Hell.

“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Perseverance means a continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.

Obstinacy mean to be sticking to an opinion, purpose, or course of action in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.

If on the other hand you obey Him you will learn to wait upon His time to mold you into the child He desire you to be. Through our hardships we become stronger in our trust in Him to see us through them and burn off the dross to become pure children of Jehovah. This will mold us into Holy children of Jehovah and be assured of our salvation. Do not think this is a one off experience. It takes years, even decades for Jehovah to accomplish His desire in you His beloved child.

That is why us older children need to come along side of the younger ones to strengthen them with our witness.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me to guide me and strengthen me as You mold me into the child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of He whose strength helped Him endure the horrible cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Book of Wisdom

 The thoughts and purposes of the [consistently] righteous are just (honest, reliable). But the counsels and schemes of the wicked are deceitful Proverbs 12:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One thing I have learned in my long walk with Christ is that a good name is worth more than a big bank account. There have been times when I was honest even though it cost me a little with local merchants ( Like one time I forgot to pay for an item that cost a dollar and walked two miles back to pay for it. Most folks laughed and thought I was stupid. However, now that merchant always gives me better deals than they do anyone else. Now, they are indignant and ask what makes me so special? ).

The deeds you do today will be rewarded tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The other benefit of being honest is that I sleep good at night while the dishonest worry about getting caught ( which they always do ). Most dishonest people suffer numerous health problems and they can all be traced back to stress caused by worry of getting caught and being greedy.

“A godly mind prizes honor above worldly good.” Rembrandt

I know of one man that I asked to help me and he replied that he could not because he did not have gas money to come here to help me and then he went out fishing. Now whenever he tries to scam me ( scamming is where you try to get something from someone without giving anything in return) he is reminded that if he does not have gas money to help me he does not have gas money to scam anything out of me, it drives him nuts.

“All human sin seems so much worse in its consequences than in its intentions.” Reinhold Niebuhr

The greatest reward of being honest is the blessing of becoming closer to my Beloved in Heaven. As a consequence He warns me of those who deal dishonestly.

I have seen many say that they believe that everything that they touch is cursed, but if they reflect back on their life they will see that they were extremely dishonest with others so yes Jehovahs hand is against them. The stupid thing is that they know if they turn from their wicked ways Jehovah will not only stop curing them but will begin to bless them yet they refuse to stop being dishonest.

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom” Thomas Jefferson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori ( the Lord is my Light ) for blessing me with Your light of truth and integrity in my life. It has proven the true manner in which to walk in my daily life. I praise You in the name of the Light of the World Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

According to His Work

live-generously

“For God pays a man according to his work, And He will make every man find [appropriate] compensation according to his way. Job 34:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

According to His Work.

I do not know about you but that gives me a feeling of joy , peace, and assurance. Now in my later years and slowing down it is good to know Jehovah will reward me for my faithful service. There is no expectation of living in a mansion with babes waiting on my every whim. There is no expectation of living like a strong twenty something. There is no expectation of living surrounded by luxury gained at some mall. There is expectation of living a life dedicated unto Jehovah and sharing fond memories with Him. A life filled with peace, love and joy.

On the other hand I see so many wicked ones whose body has been destroyed living the sex, drugs and rock and roll nonsense. They lived for the good times and for themselves. Now the good times are over. They are a shell of a living being. I see those who worked very hard to attain wealth and took great delight in cheating others to enlarge their treasure only to see their treasure mean nothing to them because it cannot love them back.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for Your faithful promise to reward me for all my freely given service unto You. May You move the wicked ones unto turning from their dark deed unto Your righteous deeds so they will not suffer Your terrible wrath. I reverently request this in the name of He who will be handing out the drowns in Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen.

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