In Faithfulness You Have

repent

“Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn Your statutes. I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are righteous, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.” (Psalm 119:67, 71, 75) The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some times intentionally some times unintentionally, we all stray from Christ. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide you back to Him.

If you are stubborn and obstinate, He loves you too much to allow you to walk down the path of ruin so He will send you affliction to bring you back.

I believe that happens to all of us Christians no matter how long we have walked with our Heavenly best friend (Jesus).

When you go astray Jehovah will afflict you to bring you back to the fold like a good parent disciplines their child when they are naughty. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) for smiting me when I have gone astray of the path You have chosen for this humble servant to take. I understand that sometimes You have to be the oak even though You prefer to be a willow. I exalt You in the name of the King who administers appropriate means to correct His servants Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There Should be a Melting

we are purified

My son, do not reject or take lightly the discipline of the Lord [learn from your mistakes and the testing that comes from His correction through discipline]. Proverbs 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

It is in the fire of the burning off of the dross that my Heavenly Father completely destroyed destructive traits in my disposition. It was extremely painful but I am eternally grateful for Him for blessing me this necessary action.

We all have bad dispositions, both good and bad, we have inherited from our parents. That is natural.

Removing the destructive ones can only be accomplished super naturally. There is no one superior to Jehovahs super powers.

Now notice that I mentioned dispositions. We all have more than one. The more we more have the more we will be put into the fire. The more we resist the fire the longer we will be in it until we surrender to our Lords will and power in our lives.

Speaking personally, I have been put in that fire so many times and been in there so long I am surprised I do not have a permanent sun burn (I used to be a little stubborn).

”For a Christian to defy adversities is to “despise” chastisement. Instead of hardening himself to endure stoically, there should be a melting of the heart.” — Arthur W. Pink

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) with smiting me Your rod of adversity whenever I am a disobedient child of Yours or when it is necessary to purge me of harmful dispositions with in my character. It is necessary so that I may become more pure in Your eyes and for my interaction with those around me. I praise You in the name of He whose anger at wickedness caused Him to strike the unrepentant money changers in Your temple 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

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.
