Will Cure More Sins Than

 The Lord is like a father to his children,  tender and compassionate to those who fear him. Psalm 103:13 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

You get more with the carrot than the stick. It is better to encourage someone than to tear them down and be a constant fault finder with them. I had far more success using this method as a teacher than any other.

When you are a constant fault finder, folks tend to lose ambition to improve. That makes them easy to control which is satanic.

Jehovah is very patient and compassionate (which means He is sympathetic towards our weaknesses and helps us overcome them) with us. Should we not be the same with others?

That does not mean we are to look the other way with their destructive lifestyle choices (like drugs) but are to help them (the operative word here is help. If they refuse to attempt to improve themselves than it is a waste of time trying to help them). To not hold someone accountable for their destructive lifestyles is not helping them, it is abusing them. It is abuse because we are not holding them accountable , to see the destruction in their lives and others and make not attempt to improve their lives.

To be compassionate is to help them leave that destructive lifestyle not to encourage them to continue in it. Yes, we need to be tender and compassionate but with a good dose of firmness ,when necessary, is needed in the equation as well.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Please Jehovah EL RACHUM (Merciful God) bless me to be merciful toward others as You are merciful unto me. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose merciful blood cleanses me of my sins Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

The Longer You Delay.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts and passions. Romans 6:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a gardener I know full well that when a tree see becomes a twig you pull it out immediately. Otherwise, with some tree’s it is almost impossible to remove.

So too it is with sin.

The longer you dwell in the sewer of sin, the more it seeps into the pours of your body and spirit. This is a slow physical and spiritual death.

Now some say I will sin when I am young and sow me wild seeds. Then, I will repent when I get older. They are living a fools dream. I have witnessed a small seed not only germinate in a soul but also this leads to others sins and more and more sins until it completely consumes the man or woman. Just listen to a drug addict and most will share with you how it started out small and was fun. Then it became a cruel slave master. The slave master brought with him other slave masters who were just as unmerciful (more addictions). It becomes a living Hell. It amazes me that most drug addicts prefer this Hell rather than become clean (which is why all the free drug clinics are useless unless the addicted want help).

Almost all of my habitual sins began small and over time became deep rooted in my per sona. It took some serious and painful burning off of the dross by the Holy Spirit to cleanse me of them. We need to be constantly attentive to the Holy Spirits guidance in our lives to avoid these destructive temptations every day.

There are still a few that Jehovah allows to keep me humble and keep me reliant upon Him instead of myself.

“The longer you delay, the more your sin gets strength and rooting. If you cannot bend a twig, how will you be able to bend it when it is a tree?” — Richard Baxter

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for sending the Holy Spirit to help deliver me from poisonous sins which will destroy the Holy Spirit with in me if they are permitted to take root. I praise You in the name of He who yanked out the worlds sins with His blood 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 Impossible To

 

Those who are in the flesh [living a life that caters to sinful appetites and impulses] cannot please God. Romans 8:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

Because Jehovah is spirit we cannot please Him if we are consistently living a destructive life of fleshly pleasure. He desires you to mature in spirit because that makes you a holy and righteous child of His. In the process of this we become ever closer to Him in spirit.

The Christian creed is Jehovah first, others second, self last. The worldly creed is myself first, others get the leftovers and Jehovah gets nothing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When we cater to the fleshly desire we are selfish and greedy. We do not care about anybody but ourselves.

Jehovah desires you to have a loving relationship with Him and then to emulate that out to others.

It is impossible to please self and to please God Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh my cherished Jehovah Abba (God our Father) I love to please You above all others because of Your immeasurable love for me.

Please bless me to exhibit Your love towards others so as to guide them to a Heavenly love which none other can compare.

I declare my love for You in the name of He whose love for me led Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Fights Against It.

 

                                                                 

So now [if that is the case, then] it is no longer I who do it [the disobedient thing which I despise], but the sin [nature] which lives in me.  For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh [my human nature, my worldliness—my sinful capacity]. For the willingness [to do good] is present in me, but the doing of good is not. For the good that I want to do, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. Romans 7:17-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is a constant battle.

Although we are Christians in spirit we are still flesh and blood with fleshly desires that fight against the spirit.

How many times have we spoken foolishly with words that hurt others (whether intentional or unintentional)?

How many times have we looked at someone and wanted to jump in the sack with them (yes women do it as well as men)?

How many times have we looked down on another because of their race, nationality or social standing?

These things are said to be natural and they are, for the flesh.

But as Christians we are to live super natural lives.

We cannot succeed on our own initiative.

Thankfully we have the ultimate superpower readily available to assist us. His name is the Holy Spirit.

I cannot count the number of times I call upon Him every day. It is so reassuring to know He is always there and deeply gratifying as well. He has prevented numerous disasters in my daily life.

Make a habit of always opening your mouth to Him first before you open it to someone else Always make a habit of running to Him before you run to your fleshly desires first. It prevents untold painful catastrophes

The true Christian hates sin, flees from it, fights against it, considers it his greatest plague, resents the burden of its presence, mourns when he falls under its influence, and longs to be completely delivered from it.”J.C. Ryle

Prayer: Please JehovahMa’oz (Lord my Fortress) bless me to always be able to take shelter in Your strong fortress when the enemy comes attacking my mine with destructive thought which are repugnant unto both You and I. Please bless me with the proper weapons to defeat the wicked foe when He comes slithering into my daily life so as to remain a righteous child of Yours. I humbly request this in the name of He who used Your Holy Scripture to defeat His foe in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Center Your Mind on Them.

 

Finally,believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. Philippians 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us take a test okay?

Where do you spend more time: A watching trash on the TV or B watching Christian movies on the internet?

Listening to that rubbish they call music on the radio or listening to and singing along with Christian joyful praise music on the radio?

Which do you spend more time doing: serving self :playing sports, going shopping, or any other activity(there is nothing wrong with these activities unless they are thieves which rob time away from serving Christ) or serving Christ?

Do not sit there and shake your head in agreement and then do nothing about it, make a concerted effort to change your habits.

Of course it is a necessary requirement to go to a make over artist. And, as we all know, The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist. Ask Him for direction in your life to change your habits and then obey His guidance.

This takes time. You are not only be molded into a new creation but you also have to have the filth of the world purged from your mind and from your spirit.

Do not just think about making changes in your life, pray to Jehovah on how to make those changes and then do it. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for sanctifying me with Your word in every aspect of my life. Thank You Holy Spirit for grace in assisting me to conquer the destructive mentality in me so that I may continue to grow into the cherished child my Beloved Father in Heaven desires me to be. I give all glory unto You in the name of He who is the best remodeler of the soul Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.

Where Your Heart Goes

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23New International Version

If you have unresolved anger in your heart it will affect not just your physical well being but will affect your relationships in your family, with your friends and classmates and co-workers.

If you are proud you become arrogant and that affects your interpersonal relationships.

If you are in love with yourself you will end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

If you are materialistic it will make you very sad and a slave to consumerism and put you into debt of which you will never free yourself from.

Most important of all if you suffer from any of these afflictions it will affect your most treasured relationship, that of Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Where your heart goes, your feet follow Joseph- Anthony: Green

The best way to prevent yourself from falling into one these destructive trait is to daily nurture yourself in your relationship with them. We do this by reading their Word to us, by obeying it and by daily prayer.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit my guidance councilor guide me away from destructive forces and guide me in walking with Your Heavenly will. In the name of He who guided His heart and lead by example Jesus Christ. Amen.

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