Not Until We Have Become Humble and Teachable

follow your ways

 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom; A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him.

There have been so many times in my life when I see someone new at a job doing something wrong or doing it in a difficult way. I try to teach them the correct way or an easier way and they look at me with contempt like they know so much more than me. That is very rude arrogant and disrespectful. The end result for them is of course disastrous.

So too it is with us.

When the Holy Spirit tries to teach us a better way at life and we arrogantly contemptuously ignore Him and do the exact opposite, not only is the result disastrous but it is arrogant and disrespectful towards Him. Not only must we listen to Jehovah when He speaks to us but we are to be obedient as well. We must admit and submit to His supreme intelligence over our feeble minuscule understanding. Otherwise, what is the sense of Him speaking with us?

“Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty…acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always listen, understand and obey Your voice because I know You only want what is best for me because You love me and care about me. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always listened to His Heavenly Fathers voice Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

It Comes Naturally.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

 “The heart is deceitful above all things And it is extremely sick; Who can understand it fully and know its secret motives? Jeremiah 17;9 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Folks see these mass murders, war, rape, unrestrained lust for both sexual pleasure as well as sensual like clothes cars and such. They see disrespect, greed, ungratefulness, lying, manipulating, conniving and deceitfulness. They see wanton destruction of nature, societies and families. They shake their heads and wonder where it come from.

It comes naturally.

Folks try all kinds of remedies which naturally fail, especially from what I see in “safe injection sites” (it is supposed to be a safe place for junkies it get their”fix” but ends up destroying the surrounding neighbourhoods with used needles on their lawns and in playgrounds. They have to endure these stoned creatures walking around their neighbourhoods like raving lunatics. I have seen it in more than one city and it destroys the downtown core which is made up of mostly small business.).

What is needed is not the natural but the super natural power that only comes from Jehovah. We need Him in our personal lives, family lives and societal lives.

Every society down through out the ages that has moved away from Jehovah has moved towards its own self destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please YAHWEH-Ropheka :God our healer always administer Thy Holy medicine in generous proportion in my mind, spirit and body to remain pure unto Thee. May this healing balm gush forth from me unto the sick in this dark world and guide them to the Supreme Divine Healer, You. I humbly request this in the name of the greatest Healer to ever walk this earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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.

The First Two were Arrogant.

Then the king sent to Elijah a captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men to seize the prophet]. And he went up to him, and behold, he was sitting on the top of a hill. And the captain said to him, “Man of God, the king says, ‘Come down.’” Elijah replied to the captain of fifty, “So if I am a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men].” Then fire fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. So King Ahaziah again sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And he said to him, “Man of God, thus says the king, ‘Come down quickly.’” Elijah answered them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men].” And the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 2 Kings 1:9-13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The first two were arrogant with a man they knew was a man from Jehovah. They were disrespectful. They were not asking respectfully of the man of Jehovah but were arrogantly demanding. They paid the price.

I have found that those who bully one of Jehovahs children pay a very dear price (it is not fire from Heaven but it is severe none the less).

So Ahaziah again sent a captain of a third fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And the third captain of fifty went up and came bowed down on his knees before Elijah, and begged him [for compassion] and said to him, “O man of God, please let my life and the lives of your servants, these fifty, be precious in your sight. Behold, fire came down from heaven and consumed the first two captains of fifty with their fifties; but now let my life be precious in your sight.” The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.” So he stood and went down with him to the king. 2 Kings 1:14-15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The last man was respectful and humble and did not suffer the same fate as the previous two.

I have found that when one is respectful towards one of Jehovah children they are blessed, even if they are not of His family. Be respectful unto everyone but especially a child of Jehovah or you will pay a very heavy price.

Be respectful unto all, but especially those of Jehovahs family. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) bless me to never be disrespectful towards anyone, especially one of Your servants. I humbly request this in the name of my most respectful King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

To All You Bigheads.

 The Son of Man must [of necessity] suffer many things and be rejected [as the Messiah] by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and must be put to death, and after three days rise [from death to life]. Mark 8:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is to all you bigheads. You know, the ones who are so full of themselves they have bigheads ( they are full of pride).

Before you go around participating in your favourite hobby, bragging about all of your wonderful, magnificent amazing accomplishments compare it to what Christ did.

Jesus suffered being unjustly beaten and tortured for all of humanity, what have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the agony of being nailed to a cross and hanging there for six long horrendous hours for all of those willing to accept His gift of His precious blood is the key to Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus willingly stayed on the cross and watched His beloved mother watch Him suffer a shameful death. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the vile ones laughing at Him, spitting on Him and making fun of Him so that we who accept Him as our Savior can become citizens of Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus died so that we who accept Him as our Heavenly Brother are adopted into an amazing Heavenly family. What have you done to compare with that?

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.” Isaac Watts

Kinda brings you down off of your high horse doesn’t it?

I know it does me when I begin to become bigheaded.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Yasha ( The Lord my Savior) for meditating upon Your awesomeness for what You have so graciously done for me to wipe clean all of my filthy sins upon my repentance. It helps to keep me humble in comparison to what You have done for me compared to what I have done for You and for myself. I adore You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

Peevish Discontented Minds

  The whole congregation of the Israelites [grew discontented and] murmured and rebelled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,and the Israelites said to them, Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and ate bread until we were full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this entire assembly with hunger.” (To understand Israel’s rebellious behavior, it is important to grasp the contrast between life in Egypt and nomadic life in the wilderness. Despite the hardships of slavery survival was not an issue in Egypt, where they were guaranteed food and other necessities. But the desert wilderness was hostile and unforgiving, and survival was an art. Desert nomads needed to understand the wilderness in order to stay alive; they had to learn, among other things, how to protect themselves from the weather, where to find water and pasture, and how to find and prepare scarce food, or live primarily from what their livestock could provide them. So the Israelites viewed every new problem they faced as life-threatening. Instead of looking back and taking comfort from God’s earlier miracles, they doubted God’s ability and willingness to help them. Their fears and doubts subsequently came to be expressed as irrational anger toward Moses. ) Exodus 16:2-3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many of us ask Jehovah for something but are never satisfied?

We ask for a job but when we get one we do not like the work because it is too hard or it is too boring.

We ask for a place to live but it is too far from the bus stop or grocery store or park.

We ask for direction in life but it is not where we want to go.

We desire good Christian friends but can always find fault with them.

I think the real reason we are discontented is because of greed. We want the best and nothing less is good enough for us.

Jehovah blesses with what we need not always with what we want. Joseph son of Jehovah

That is the ultimate insult of ungratefulness and a huge slap in the face to our loving generous Father in Heaven. More so for those of us that have walked with Christ for any length of time and so can reflect back at His previous provisions for us. Peevish discontented minds will find fault with that which has no fault in it but that it is too good for them.

Those that might be very happy often make themselves very miserable by their discontents. Matthew Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a grateful heart towards you and those around me for all the wonderful blessings You and those around me share with me every day. I ask this in the name of the greatest blessing of which I am eternally grateful for Jesus Christ. Amen.

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