Spare the rod?

OBEY GODS WORD

 I think a better way to say this is :To spare the rod the child will mock you.         

 How many parents laugh at the naughty deeds of a child when they should be disciplined?

Indeed there is a certain TV show that shows home made video’s. Oh how many times I have seen a child throw a temper tantrum (especially because they did not get the present they demanded for Christmas). The idiot parents sit there and laugh instead of disciplining the child.                                                      

How many parents are guilty of pampering their offspring and giving them everything they demand without making them work for it How are they going to discipline themselves when they become adults if the parents do not teach it to them when they are children                                                           

When they become teenagers and are nothing but continuous trouble for you and then you waked up for the need for discipline they will mock you.                                                                 

Then when the child grows into an adult they wail and wonder their children are so demanding, so ungrateful and so selfish.                                             

From my experience this is a sin for which the mothers and grandmothers are the worst offenders.   

When I was a teacher the first rule taught and enforced was respect. Both respect for the teacher and the teacher respecting the child. The majority of my children became well behaved and respectful. And, they loved their teacher for doing that for them.    

Parents, you are a disgrace if you do not discipline your children and the crops you sow from this damming negligence will be nothing but heartache and misery. By not disciplining them you are guilty of leading them down the road to Hell much more that Satan is.                                                              

A life without discipline is a life of misery. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) to teach me and when necessary discipline me so that I may always be an obedient child of Yours. I gratefully praise You for this treasured gift in the name of the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Life Without.

                                                            

Blessed [with wisdom and prosperity] is the man whom You discipline and instruct, O Lord, And whom You teach from Your law .Psalm 94:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see many idiots now proclaiming that it should be legal for folks to use any drug they want and it will not be illegal. To them I merely ask them to research history and see what it was like in the eighteen hundreds and see what it did to families and to societies.

I see many that do not believe in incarceration for criminals and then cry because crime goes up (oh statistics may say it is going down but that is because people do not want to report it because they not only do not see justice done but then the criminals harrass them and the police are helpless).

I see many idiots saying there should not be any corporate punishment in class and then cry baby because the students are unruly and down right violent.

There must be discipline in life or the individuals life and societies will go right down the toilet. And the best discipline come from Jehovah because He and only He know what is truly right from what is wrong.

A society risks disaster that ignores Jehovahs commands. If you doubt me just look up and countries history. Every time they became liberal they ended up in huge disasters. War, crime, famine and disease were their rewards.

A life without Divine discipline is a life of confusion Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for disciplining this sometimes very naughty child of Yours to continuously mold him to become You loving sanctified child. Sorry for being occasionally naughty. I pray this in the name of Your most devoted child 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

Three Things That Only God Knows

                                                                  

I do not know, [only] God knows. 2 Corinthians 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been so many times when trials and tribulations have struck without warning in my life (matter of a fact almost all the time). I call out unto Jehovah and ask Him why I had no warning and why it was happening. He is silent. That is a good thing. He does not inform me because there would be terror in my heart at the foreordained knowledge of what was coming. He does not inform me because either He is in the process of molding me through this event or He is testing me through it.

He does not allow me to know how long it will last. There is good reason for that. If I knew how long it would last it may seem too long a time or I would become complacent in the knowledge that it will only last for a while.

So, when you are going through and difficulty and Jehovah is silent, there is a good reason for it.

No, He is not angry with you, although this may be an event to discipline you.

No, He has not deserted you, He loves you too much to ever desert you.

“There are three things that only God knows: the beginning of things, the cause of things and the end of things.” Welsh Proverb

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with events in my life that You have used to burn off the dross to create in me a righteous heart and life of dedication unto You. Thank you for not forewarning me of these events becasue they would be too terrible for me to grasp at the time. Thank you that through these events You strengthen my faith in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Known by His Deeds.  

Even a child is known by his deeds, Whether what he does is pure and right. Proverbs 20:11 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

When I was a teacher sometimes the children would misbehave. When I went to punish them they pleaded not to be punished and promised not to be naughty again. I agreed not to punish them if they would behave. Not even five minutes later they would be little monsters again. When I reminded them of their promise they laughed in my face and refused to acknowledge their promise. That is when the hammer came down and they received worse punishment. That quickly put a permanent end to that unacceptable behavior.

They knew what they were doing was wrong.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

I see it so often today when children are delinquent and the liberal judges let them off. This is wrong. Let the punishment fit the crime otherwise they just get worse.

You can bet with the teenagers when they are terrible you can trace it back to their childhood and lack of discipline in the family and in the schools. Then when they become adults they foolishly believe they can do what ever they want and there is no retribution for their behavior.

Most times they are disrespectful on their own initiatives.

Do not tell me it is not their fault it is societies fault, I did not make them do it. Do not tell me it is because they are poor, some of the most respectful folks I have ever met were dirt poor, do not tell me it is the families fault, I have met many respectful families whose children are little monsters and a heavy burden on the parents.

It does not matter how good or bad parents raise their children it is the childrens choices in their lives and the decisions they make will come back to either bless them or curse them. Joseph a son of Jehovah           

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless me to wisely teach the youth of today wisdom, integrity and righteous morals so as to avoid Your terrible judgement. I sincerely request 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.

He was Arrogant.

For when Jezebel destroyed the prophets of the Lord, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by fifties in a cave, and provided them with bread and water. 1 Kings 18:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Then Elijah said to the people, “I alone remain a prophet of the Lord, while Baal’s prophets are 450 men. 1 Kings 18:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Even though Elijah was informed that a thousand prophets had been rescued from the bloody wicked hand of Jezebel here he was standing in front of the whole nation telling a blatant lie that he was the only prophet of Israel.

He was arrogant.

He paid the price by being made humble and afraid of a wicked queen.

So too it is with us. When we Christians become arrogant in our Christian walk ( and we all do from time to time) Jehovah will arrange something to happen to knock us off of our high horses. 

The higher the horse the harder the fall. Unknown

That does not mean He is angry with us but rather that He is disciplining us like any good father or mother would a child they love.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Ezer (The LORD our Helper) bless me that You always keep my heart humble so as to be a shining light in a dark world. I humbly request this in the name of the most humble of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

With Confidence and Without Fear.

 

Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment]. Hebrews 4:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We approach Jehovahs throne with confidence not arrogance because we believe it is by Christs blood that we have the gift of grace which is forgiveness, that our filth is washed clean when we repent.

We also need to acknowledge our weaknesses and humbly, sincerely request The Holy Spirits assistance and strength to conquer them.

Jehovah will allow us to wrestle with our weaknesses until the point where they are going to defeat us and then come in like the cavalry. This is to teach us that we are too weak and in need of His Divine assistance. This teaches us to not only depend upon Him but to be grateful and respectful unto Him.

The end result is a deep love and admiration towards Him. Knowing our weaknesses we need to be aware of them and our circumstances.

We need to be aware of the danger of entering into a forbidden area because it will place us in the temptation zone which will overpower our weaknesses.

We need to discipline ourselves to avoid these places like the plague.

Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah.

So a alcoholic, when they become dry, need to be aware of certain streets that they cannot walk down because there is a liquor store there or a bar which will draw them into temptation.

Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the body is weak. Matthew 26:41 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with Your Divine strength and wisdom to be able to conquer my weaknesses so as to not shame You the One I love the most. I humbly ask this in the name of He whose strength defeated satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Be Unceasing and Persistent.

 Be unceasing and persistent in prayer. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have faithfully prayed for a certain woman to come to Christ daily for over twenty years. Through all this time she persistently rejected all attempt’s to listen to anyone about Christ.

Within the last year she began going to a Bible study and now attends a church down the street on Sundays and once during the week. She still attends the first church one a week. She has even invited many of her friends to join her, most of which accept and have become members of that church. She reads daily devotionals and prays every day. Her disposition has metamorphosed so much many people do not even know her anymore.

That is the reward for persistent prayer. Of course not all of our prayers will be answered.

There are men and women that become very angry and even hate me for praying for them. They choose to remain walking in darkness. That is their choice.

Jehovah always gives everyone a choice. Choose wisely. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) with Your Divine strength to continue on in prayer even when there does not appear to be any results. I thank You in the name of He who never ceased praying as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

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