Do Not Even Associate With

  do not allow them to control you

Do not even associate with a man given to angry outbursts; Or go [along] with a hot-tempered man, Or you will learn his [undisciplined] ways And get yourself trapped  [in a situation from which it is hard to escape].Proverbs 22:24-25  Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are explosive folks. You can be having a nice social conversation with them and suddenly they will explode in a rage. I have seen it numerous times and it was terrifying, until Jehovah blessed me with the peace, wisdom and grace to be firm with them and inform them that that childish behavior is not tolerated with me so either straighten up or get away from me. If they refuse to obey then I inform them they can discuss it with the police. Then they leave, all the while screaming like a banshee about how I am abusing them (it is not my fault, it is yours is their mantra). 

Do not try to reason with them because there is no reasoning with a fool. All that will happen is that you will get into a yelling contest with them and lose your temper, Then, they will manipulate you to lose your temper even more and they will be laughing at you on the inside.                                         

Never get into an argument with a fool. To do so, you have to go down to their level and they will beat you every time from experience. Anonymous 

I speak from a lot of experience.

In the future I refuse to even acknowledge them (even to say hello or good morning) because that opens the door and they are thieves. They will steal your peace and you will get into another yelling contest. Again, I speak from a lot of experience.

I depend upon the Holy Spirit to bless me with strength, wisdom and grace to handle these poor pitiful folks. Yes some of them are like this because of unresolved issues in their lives but most are like this because they just love to fight.    

The pitiful thing is though, that because they are cursed with this disposition, they have no friends, especially in their elder years.                                    

No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace while dealing with a war monger who attempts to steal it from me. Thank you for blessing me with the wisdom in how to prevent them from stealing Your Divine gift from me. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

Not Saying Good Bye but Rather.

heavenly love

And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatted steer together; And a little child will lead them. Isaiah 11:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Just recently our beloved cat died. She had a stroke and when we took her to the vet I stayed with her as she was put to sleep. Her body seemed to hug mine as I softly spoke with her until the end. That night about ten o;clock I distinctly heard her soft meow and it seemed as if she was going upwards.

There was a tingling like an electric current when Sammy, one of our other cats died in the vet’s office about a year ago  with me by his side two years ago. Again a few hours later I sensed him meowing as if he was heading towards the Heavens.

Both times it felt like they were not saying good bye but rather see ya later. I am looking forward to rubbing my friends belly with my cherished Jesus in our Heavenly home. I believe we will see our beloved pets in Heaven.

If we love our pets like one of our own children how much more do you think Jehovah loves them? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Yes,by the way, I have met more than a few animals I think were creatures from Hell as well.

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer) for blessing me with Your kindness to allow my beloved friends to say nor good bye but see ya later on their journey to our Heavenly home. I look forward to rubbing their bellies with my best friend Jesus in our Heavenly home. It is in His loving name I exalt You. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

I Stand at the Door.

voice of god

Behold, I stand at the door and continually knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him (restore him), and he with Me. Revelation 3:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jesus comes a knocking, it is beneficial to us if we open the door. When He enters our hearts He begins a life long process of molding us to emulate Him. The more He reveals of Himself and our Heavenly Father and our Wise Teacher (the Holy Spirit) to us the deeper our will be to come closer to Him.

It is interesting after we have walked with Him for a while how much He has subtly changes our preferences in life unbeknownst to us.

When we reflect back on our past we are shocked at the things we did and believed in.

It is quite interesting when we move away from our community we were raised in and come home after a few years and folks are shocked by how much we have changed. The old things are actually detestable to us and the things we desire those that knew us cannot understand. We feel like an alien amongst our family and old friends.

We are all born into the world. It is Christ that comes unto us. If we accept His invitation then we will spend a lifetime where he makes Himself more appealing and the world more distasteful. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with bringing the Holy Spirit to work with me a make over of my mind and spirit to create in me the beautiful child You know I am capable of being. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood washed my filth away Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What They Gave to Him, They Give to You.

the-lord-is-my-strength

Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. John 15:20 New International Version

Two words that are oxy morons: Christian and non-suffering.

Many people today have the false belief that when they give their lives to Christ it will be a cake walk and a bed of roses.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

When you commit your live to Christ you can expect to be persecuted.

Many times the worst persecution will come from your family. They will see the change in you and not like it. They will fight you to walk away from Christ. Most times this will mean you must walk away from family. It will be painful.

The same goes for friends. They will be confused as to why you have changes and will viciously mock you because of the change in your life. It will not be pleasant.

You can expect to be treated like a geek at school and work. You can expect people to go out of their way to make your life miserable.

But take heart. We have a savior who has walked that path before you so will comfort you and encourage you.

For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5 New International Version

I know, I have been there. I have had to walk away from family and friends and it was very painful.

I have been in jobs where I felt like I was the only person in the world because no one would talk with me because I was not dishonest. When that happens in a bush camp it can be very lonely.

In my agony I cried out to Jehovah and He sent the Holy Spirit who comforted, strengthened and encouraged me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for comforting and encouraging me during my times of persecution for our relationship. I consider it an honor to suffer for Your awesome name. I give thanks in the name of He who suffered all the way to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Be Afraid of Them.

He said, “Come!” And Peter…walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid. and he began to sink, and he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Holy Bible Amplified Version

When the Lord calls us most times there will be loud mouths that step forward with boisterous talk mocking you in public as well as in private. They will boisterously challenge your calling. Do not be surprised if they call you a fool and insane. The worst offenders of course will be family and friends. Boy did they mock and ridicule me and call me insane.

Do not listen to them or they will sink you. And if you do and you will feel yourself sinking under their waves of criticism and mockery, call out to Christ and He will lift you above those boisterous windbags.

Listen to the Lord and have faith in Him. I did and we accomplished numerous amazing things.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with the strength and faith (trust) to be obedient unto Your calling no matter the loud mouths antagonistic and critical mocking attitude and behaviour towards me when I obey Your calling. I humbly request this in the name of He who was bitterly mocked on the cross by those who refused to believe Your calling unto Him here on planet earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Bag with Holes in It.

 “Is it time for you yourselves to live in your [expensive] paneled houses while this house [of the Lord] lies in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! You have planted much, but you harvest little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have enough to be intoxicated; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns wages earns them just to put them in a bag with holes in it [because God has withheld His blessing].” Haggai 1:3-6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you have a bag with holes in it ( instead of bag insert wallet )?

Could it be because you are so selfish that you earn a penny and spend a dollar ( on yourself of course)? So when you refuse to share your wealth Jehovah allow the devil to tempt you into getting into dept to satisfy your unquenchable desire for more, more, more. Then you are miserable.

Could it be that you plant a lot of seeds to be friends with others while neglecting the crop of daily interaction with Jehovah so you harvest a little from your relationship with Him?

Could it be that in your quest for recognition form others ( self-centeredness- look at me, look at me) that you never get enough and go to foolish and many times dangerous lengths to get noticed by others instead of directing them to Jehovah? As a consequence you are never satisfied. Instead of nurturing a loving relationship with Jehovah you nurture your own ego and as a result you are cold with little or no love in your life. As a result the temple of Jehovah that resides within you is in ruins.

Prayer: I humbly pray my loving Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) that You daily guide this modest servant of Your to constantly build upon and glorify Your Holy Temple so that it is a beacon to those walking in the cold dark world to You amazing Temple. I sincerely request this in the name of He who shines the most brilliantly of Your holy temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There is Nothing Concealed.

TRUST IN HIM

 

So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. Matthew 10:26 New International Version

Since becoming close with Christ I have noticed a familiar pattern pattern emerge in my social contacts in every aspect of my life.    There have been so many times wicked individuals have, unbeknownst to me, laid traps for me, sometimes by themselves, others in groups.

Being naive and gullible as I am I was  always an easy mark for the wicked schemers and con artists.

However, the result was always the same.

 

The trap they laid for me I escaped from and they always fell into their own wicked traps. They were stunned and enraged at me. Many times they pretentiously fake innocence. They slowly learned not to attempt such foolish endeavors again. As well, they avoid me like the plague because they cannot get away with their scams. They are so dishonest they cannot function in any other way in their lives but to lie, connive, deceive and or manipulate others.

When you hear of the wicked and powerful thinking up ways to ensnare you, do not be afraid of them but have faith in the wisest most powerful protector of them all , Jehovah God. He continually will arrange circumstances so that you walk away looking righteous while others laugh at the wicked fools as they end up covered with protectorthier own dung heaped upon their faces.

 

I have experienced this at school, work, with family and in relationships. It covers all aspects of our social life, school life and work life.

 

The wicked think they are so smart as they lay traps for the righteous but God in Heaven laughs at them as He guide the righteous around the traps and the wicked fall into their own traps. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

When you have a respectful, loving relationship with Christ He will protect you from such scam artists if you are obedient unto His heeding. This has been oh so true in my walk with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah (The Lord Saves) for rescuing me from the evil plots the wicked arrogantly lay before me to trap me. I joyfully thank you in the name of He who outwitted the Pharisee’s when they tried to outwit Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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