That is Our Great Need Today.

                                      

For the devious are repulsive to the Lord;But His private counsel is with the upright [those with spiritual integrity and moral courage]. Proverbs 3:32 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Repulsive means to arouse aversion or disgust.

This means the devious who are liars, scammers and manipulators are disgusting in the Lords eyes. They are like dung to Him.

Unfortunately we see this conduct polluting every aspect of society today. From individual families to those in the highest office. From those teaching in schools to those in the retail industry. It is like a plague that is killing societies and countries.

What we need it parents and grandparents that lead by example in teaching their children righteous morals, their children’s eternity depends upon it.

Teachers are the next building block in society. We need Godly teachers showing children how to live a Godly ethical life both inside the classroom and out of it.

We need politicians that are doing what is right for society and not to enrich themselves.

We need industry leaders that pay decent wages, and provide good quality products at a reasonable price.

Unfortunately I see societies in the world rotting away like rotten eggs. They are foul to the Lord and foul to me.

Us Christians are never needed as great in history to set an example of integrity and proper morals as we are today.

“It is not guided missiles, but guided morals, that is our great need today.” George W. Ford

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with teaching me Your supreme righteousness and the help You have amply supplied to Your child to become a righteous member of Your Holy family.

May I honor You by exhibiting these qualities to the world to guide them unto You and to a respectful life.

I joyously thank You and humbly request this in the name of the most righteous Jesus Christ. Amen

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

But a Living Presence

.                                                                                                                      

But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Galatians 5:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It shows in our daily lives whether or not we are Christians.

I go by the motto: Do not tell me, show me.”

How unselfish are you with your tithes( yes we are still to give a tenth) and for that matter how much more do you give? Now if you are financially challenged you can give of your time which is perhaps more valuable than your money.

Do you have the joy of Christ in your lives (happiness is physical but joy is spiritual) or are you a Debbie Downer, always complaining?

How much peace do you have when dealing with challenging situations (now we all have our breaking points but that is to be the exception to the rule)?

How kind are you to others, like shoveling the snow for a senior or cutting their lawn in the summer?

Are you faithful in your daily life unto Christ or is it just for an hour on Sunday?

These are but a few important questions that we need to honestly ask ourselves.

If there is any area lacking there is only one answer: pray man, pray, that Jehovah reveals to you any and every area in which you are weak in and to guide you to the proper course of action to take, including asking Him for the strength to shore up these weaknesses.

This should be done on a daily basis because the weaknesses can and do sneak in subtly without or knowledge.

“Christianity is not a theory or speculation, but a life; not a philosophy of life, but a living presence.” Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Abba (God our Father) may You please bless me with Your Holy attributes every day so that I may bless others to be a light that shines in a dark world and bring the lost into Your most amazing family. I humbly request this in the name of my big brother 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

Do Not Take Too Much Hay

                                                          

One hand full of rest and patience is better than two fists full of labor and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen far too many work themselves into self destruction. They never have enough. It is like trying to catch the wind, it is impossible. They work overtime every opportunity they can get just so they can buy that new car or go on that great cruise. If you have a family they are the ones that suffer because of your absence. You will lose in the long run as well. Because you neglected your children when they were young, when you get old and need help they will neglect you.

Could this be the reason there is so much road rage on the highways today?

You also lose with your mental and physical health. You will have nervous breakdowns, you will have insomnia, you will develop ulcers, you will develop heart problems. Then what good does all that money do you?

Live a simple life and take time to be with your family and with your Heavenly Father. It is much more beneficial to you.

Do not take too much hay in your pitchfork (do not take on too much work).

  Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) that You bless me with peace when I rest in Your presence both in my daily life and during that one special day we commune together. I exalt Thee in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Nothing Under the Sun can Satisfy, Except.

 

                                                               

He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]. Ecclesiastes 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is an unlimited daily treasure trove of experiences to witness Jehovahs glory all around us. These experiences are the best time to witness to others about the God of beauty and His infinite love for us using the beauty He is showing us at the time. It does not matter if we are young or old, what nationality or colour we are or those we are witnessing to.

As well, when we are in these places talking with others they are likely to relax and open up with you about their problems. Take time to listen and take notes (if they ask you why you are taking notes just explain to them that that is to reflect back on and each one can be discussed more in depth). Then help them get the help they need whether it is counselling or whether it is some other resource they need.

At the end of the talk ask them their name (if you have not already done so). When they ask why just explain to them that you are putting them on your prayer list and are going to pray for them every day.

Many times, from my experience they will meet you again and will be much more open to listening to you share the gospel.

Pray that Jehovah guides you to the place where He reveals His beauty and glory to someone that has a receptive heart ready to come unto Him (do not do this on your own initiative but upon His and you will have great success).

“God hath given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) shine Your Divine light on the path You desire me to take to share Your love and beauty with others. In so doing may this be a inviting time to bring lost souls unto Your Holy family. I humbly request this in the name of my adorable Heavenly King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Will Have No Pity For

My eye will have no pity on you, nor will I spare you, but I will repay you for your evil ways, while your abominations are among you; and you will know (recognize, understand) [without any doubt] that I am the Lord.’ Ezekiel 7:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

An abomination is a extreme disgust and hatred for something or someone.

So just as any sane man or woman will be disgusted with the actions of those that belong to the devils brigade called ISIS. That is an abomination in a civilized world.

So too is homosexuality an abomination before Jehovah and He repays you for your filth (Yes I believe aids, syphilis, and gonorrhea is a result of their filthy behavior. Why else is it confined to mostly the homosexual community?).

When you steal because you are too lazy to work to support your drug habit (most times it is not an addiction it is a lifestyle choice- I have worked a lot with homeless creatures so I speak from a lot of experience).

When you are disrespectful unto your parents (you know, only using them for your ATM machine while giving them nothing in return) is an abomination unto Jehovah.

On the flip side of the coin when parents are abusing their adult children (you know, when they are live in care givers and you have the means to pay them but refuse to do so. You refuse to do so because you are being stupid and being the ATM machine to those mentioned in the preceding paragraph). That is an abomination before Jehovah.

When you use people and worship things (like the latest mobile phone or car or house) that is an abomination before Jehovah.

For each of these and all other abominations you flagrantly commit before Jehovah you shall have seven times more taken from you.

The wise repent of their wicked ways and are forgiven. The fool laughs at Jehovah and pays a very severe price. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice!) that You always deliverer the right justice at the right time to the wicked to avenge their evil they have inflicted upon the righteous. I praise You in the name of He who is the Supreme Judge 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

But for Scars.

                                                                    

And if [we are His] children, [then we are His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His spiritual blessing and inheritance], if indeed we share in His suffering so that we may also share in His glory. Romans 8:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When in a boxing match the opponent will always land a few shots, many times leaving scars for the rest of your life.

So too it is with the Christians battle.

Make no doubt about it we are in a constant battle when we become Jehovahs children.

Yes we are in continuous battle with satan and his minions but we are also in ceaseless battle against society (more so in the west than in communist countries from my experience). The anti-Christ that goes by the label of liberals are really anti-Christs in their every belief. By anti- Christ it means they are against the morals set down by Jehovah and by default by Christ. Many times they will leave deep scars from battles we both win and lose.

The most severe battles of course are within our own families. They know us best so they know how to cut us deep and many do so with complete gusto. They will cut the deepest.

I have met many who have gone through seminary that are more in line with satan than with Christ and know little more than theology and nothing of having a loving relationship with Christ.

I see many who serve themselves by pretending to serve Christ, this is especially true with missionaries. They are there more to glorify themselves than to share the gospel. And, with many missionaries I have met, they live off of others by pretending to be serving Christ.

“God will not look you over for medals, degrees, or diplomas, but for scars.” Elbert Hubbard

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord my King Forever) for blessing me with the gift of suffering for You as You suffered for me. I know that when You see these scars You shall look at them, smile at me and say the words I long to here from Thy precious lips: “Well done good and faithful servant.” I give thanks for this grace in Your suffering name. Amen

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

He is the One Who Loves You Most.

                                        

For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39 Holy Bible Amplified Version

 If we were all perfect Jesus would not have been required to suffer and die that horrible death on the cross.

Jehovah loves us all.

What pierces His heart is those that reject Him.

However, when we turn from our wicked ways and repent unto Him He is quick to forgive us and lovingly accept us completely into His Holy family.

That of course does not mean that we are perfect after we come to Christ. I believe He allows some sinful attributes to remain in us to keep us humble, both before Him as well as to our fellow man.

Do not believe the lies satan tells you that you are not good enough or that you are filthy before a Holy Gods eyes.

I know, I fell for that scam but the Holy Spirit rescued me and share the truth that when I repent I am forgiven and am gladly welcomed back into my Heavenly family.

Read your Bible, especially the Old Testament and you will discover that many of the most wicked sinners became the greatest saints.

It will happen to you as well when you surrender your heart, mind and body unto our healing loving Father in Heaven.

“Jesus Christ knows the worst about you. Nonetheless, He is the One who loves you most.” A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for blessing me with a beautiful Savior that made it possible to be a child of Your Divine family. Thank you for being so patient and persistent in moulding me into the child You desire to be in Your Holy family. I exalt You in the name of He who perfect blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen Jesus Christ. Amen.

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