A Time to Walk Away.

                                                     

A prudent man sees evil and hides himself and avoids it.Proverbs 27:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a time to walk away.

When dealing with stubborn folks there is a time to walk away. They are selfish and arrogant. They believe they are right and refuse to allow the facts to get in the way or to consider others wants or desires. They just shut down and you might as well talk to a wall. Then you become angry and say words you regret latter.

When I encounter these situations I walk away and stay away from them. They mock me and tease me saying I am pouting and laughing because they got their own way.

In reality, I am shutting my mouth to them and opening it to Jehovah. Then if I am wrong He educates me why I am wrong and how to right it. If I am right, He goes after the other folk and the more they resist Him the stronger His hand is on them.

The way I look at it is if they refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit, they most certainly will not listen to me.

The majority of times it will take four or five days until the stubborn souls comes around. It works one hundred percent of the time for me.

Then there is the spawn of satan. They like to find a weakness and then intentionally irk you on to get you upset. Then the just step back and laugh at you. All the while they are pretending to be so sweet and innocent. To just ignore them is the best defense against them.

The funny thing is though, shortly after that someone turn the tables on them and they go off like a rocket. They make themselves look like a fool and are laughed at like they laugh at others.

I walk away when you are in a every situation that I feel I have to yell to get my point across. It prevents a lot of stress and words for which I shall regret later. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) deliver me from all destructive conversations that only lead to disasters. I humbly request this in the name of He who walked away from the scribes and Pharisee’s who only desired to argue with Him Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

It is Difficult at Times But.

                            

For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine [retribution and the deliverance of justice rest with Me], I will repay [the wrongdoer].” Hebrews 10:30 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Revenge is an ever expanding circle of destruction and pain which envelopes not just those involved but also a lot of innocent lives as well.

Most of the shootings that occur at schools come from a student being bullied and wanting revenge.

How many innocent lives are taken because of the action being taken?

Sometimes you want revenge so bad you can taste it. That is the vile liquid of the devil which will only destroy you as well as your victims and innocent bystanders.

That is why we must leave vengeance in the hands of the all wise Jehovah.

He knows the perpetrators far better than you so He knows the right manner in which to deliver justice and at the right time.

It is difficult at times but waiting for Jehovahs justice, true justice will be served is the best course of action to take. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense.The God of vengeance ) for Your assurance that the wicked shall receive their just punishment in Your discerning time and in Your manner. I exalt Thee in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

It Will Destroy Us Like.

                                      

Afterward, Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “See, you are well! Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.” John 5: 14 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is not a snowball but a fiery rock that keeps on enlarging itself. Just as a snowball gets bigger and bigger as it rolls down a hill until it is a destructive force so too it unrepentant sin in our lives. It starts our small but if not eliminated quickly it metamorphoses ever bigger in a destructive force in our lives. It will destroy us like a fiery rock smashing into a ball of dry hay.

Jesus says that when He delivers us from an addiction we must never go back. If we do not only will its grip on us become stronger but it will also lead to other destructive addictions which will quickly totally destroy our lives. Look at most addictions. They start out small but they slowly enslave us and lead to other devastating addictions.

Having done volunteer work with recovering addicts I have heard this story repeated again and again.

Destruction of lives comes in small choices which diminishes cognitive thought which leads to bigger and more destructive choices until the soul is totally vanquished into a living Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:

Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with the strength when I am obedient unto You to vanquish my destructive addictions. I praise You in the name of He who conquered sin on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen. May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Create Something That Is

                                                                             

You send out Your Spirit, they are created. Psalm 104:30 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It has been in chaos that Jehovah has done the best work in my life. Because out of the chaos I did not know if my butt was up or down. I had no one to turn to for help.

Well, except where I should have gone in the first place.

And, that of course, is to He who does amazing things in chaos Jehovah, the creator.

Sometimes, when I was a teacher, I would make up a lesson plan for a class that was sure going to be easy to teach. It was total disaster and complete chaos. At break time I would go out into the stair well, get on my knees and pray my heart out. During the next part of the class I felt the Holy Spirit moving me and the class turned out fantastic, better than expected with my lesson.

“There is no situation so chaotic that God cannot from that situation, create something that is surpassingly good. He did it at the creation. He did it at the cross. He is doing it today.” — Handley C. G. Moule

If your life is in chaos go to the one who created amazing things out of chaos, listen to Him, trust Him and obey Him. Watch the amazing things He will create out of your chaos. I speak from a lot of experience.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Thy divine deliverance through every chaotic experience I have endured and for teaching me through that experience. I extol Thee in the name of He who made sense of salvation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He was Disgusting to Society

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a shepherd in Davids time he was disgusting to them. Shepherds were dirty, smelly and uncouth. But, Jehovah saw what was in his heart.

The same is true in us. You do not need to be a supermodel, wear all the latest designer clothes, attend a premier college or university or have a fat wallet to be used by Jehovah. It is your heart He is looking for.

When I was young I was poor, very shy and constantly sick. Those that knew me then would never have believed the manner in which Christ used me and the incredible transformation He has accomplished in me.

The same is true for everyone, including you.

It does not matter your appearance, your social graces, your intelligence or any other factor in your life. When your heart is receptive unto Christ He joyously embraces you into His Divine family.

The only requirement to be of service unto Christ our King is an obedient, receptive heart. Give Him that and watch the amazing things He does in your life and through your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not reject the worst sinners like drunks or drug addicts as unworthy to become Jehovahs children because it is the worst sinners who make the best saints. This is because they appreciate the Hell the Holy Spirit has delivered them from.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying a wicked sinner like me into Your Holy family.

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

We All Fall Down.

  For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again Proverbs 24:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I do not care how long you have been a member of the Family of Jehovah, I do not care how strong your trust in Jehovah is we all fall down.

That is when the wicked one will come and mock you and tell you Jehovah is angry with you and you are not fit to be a member of His divine family. Do not believe him.

When we sincerely repent ( which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it and stop doing it ) then we are forgiven.

I think an important note about repentance is for parents to set the example and repent to their young children ( and old ones of course) when we mess up. It teaches them integrity which will carry them through life and they will respect you for it.

This process is carried through out our life here on this planet until Jehovah takes us to our Heavenly home.

We will stumble and crawl our way to Heaven, not strut Joseph son of Jehovah

Do not be arrogant and foolishly believe yourself above this because that is when you are easy prey for satan.

Therefore let the one who thinks he stands firm [immune to temptation, being overconfident and self-righteous], take care that he does not fall [into sin and condemnation]. 1 Corinthians 10:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I know in my early walk with Christ there were times when I was absurd and believed I was strong and oh how hard was the fall and how deep them shame. Thankfully there was repentance on my behalf.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) for graciously saving me and lifting me out of the dung pit we all fall into on occasion in our walk to our Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of He who lifted Peter out of the waves that were enveloping Him Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Have You Ever Tired That?

a-praying-man

 Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12 Holy Bible, New King James Version.

There are two important equations in this text.

The first one is that Jesus went out to a quiet place to commune with Jehovah.

For me the best place to pray where there is deep personal conversation with my Beloved is in Jehovahs Cathedral ( nature). After all where can you not be closest to Him except in His creation where the trees, flowers and streams sing of His peace and beauty while the birds are singing praises unto Him. It fills me with peace and calm. Being relaxed with Him allows me to not only be more open and personal with Him but also where the hustle and bustle of the city does not drown out His voice speaking to me.

The next part is where Jesus prayed all night.

Have you ever tired that? I mean praying all night.

I have prayed for a couple of hours but all night, wow. The only time I can remember praying continually is during intense agony in my life. Then I prayed continually for a week. Throughout it all He gave me strength to endure it and comfort that He was there with me.

Of course we realize that this was the time of Christ’s time of agony before His torture and horrible death on the cross.

So whenever you are in a intense crisis perhaps then you will be able to pray not only all night but for days at a time like I did. Then you too will be strengthened and comforted during your intense time of tribulation.

Prayer: I immensely thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your patience in listening to the cries of anguish of a cherished child of Yours when we are enduring trials and tribulations. I thank you for Your Divine strength, peace and comfort that enabled me to not only endure them but to grow spiritually and mentally because of them. I exalt You in the name of He who sweated blood during His time of agonizing prayer Jesus Christ. Amen

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