The Most Dangerous Thing.

 

                                        

For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil.1 Timothy 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many try to reach the end of the rainbow and destroy their lives and those around them in the process. Of course we all know there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. By the same terms there is never enough money for the greedy, they always want more and they do not care who they hurt in the process. The price they pay is a cold heart unto others and being loved by none in return. That is a sad trade off for things which cannot love you back.

As well, there is also the arrogance that comes from success. There is the attitude of I am a self made man, giving no credit unto Jehovah for the blessings. That is arrogant, rude, disrespectful and down right stupid.

A reason for this is because just as Jehovah has blessed you, so too can He take away the blessings in the blink of an eye. I have seen many in soup kitchens that at one time lived in mansions.

Success has ruined more people than failure.  It has been said that money is the most dangerous thing God can put into your trust.

Of the two, I choose Christ’s love over the love of dead material things which cannot love back. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) incredible blessing of sharing Your Divine love with me. This is indeed the greatest treasure of all. I exalt Thee in the name of He who emulated Your love for us while He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Ministering to the Needs Of 

                             

For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown for His name in ministering to [the needs of] the saints (God’s people), as you do. Hebrews 6:10  Holy Bible Amplified Version

Someone once told me that everything we do, we do for greed. I was every offended by this. Now, in retrospect I completely agree with Him.

However, what kind of greed do you have?

For me I am extremely greedy to minister to both those in Christs Kingdom.

The reason for this greed is because I know it makes my Heavenly Father happy and I am greedy to fill His precious heart with joy by my actions and words because I love Him so extremely much.

Yes I am aware that He richly blesses those who serve with joy and eagerness in their hearts, minds and bodies for which there is deep gratitude in this child of Gods heart.

But, first and foremost is the greed to make my Heavenly Beloved joyful just because of the deep loving relationship we share and the lust for it to go ever deeper and deeper with every beat of my heart.

Heavenly wealth are those that flow from the heart towards Jehovah and our fellow man and woman. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with bountiful opportunities to serve You by ministering to the needs of others. It brings me ecstatic joy to please You my most Beloved. I gleefully praise You in the name of the best minister You have blessed me with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Which Will do You Have?

Serve the Lord with gladness and delight. Psalm 100:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The world says not Thy will but my will be done. The Christian says not my will but Thy will be done. Joseph son of Jehovah

Your will leads to Hell for only Christ holds the keys to Heavens gate. Those who only serve self will be forbidden entrance into a place of love, joy and peace. Their rewards will be eternal damnation of hate, sorrow and torment. The self serving shall be cast into an eternal Hell of damnation surrounded by wicked ones crying in a chorus of utter agony ,their hearts filled with burning coals of torment and their masters shall be cruel wicked demons which shall torment them in eternal darkness.

Jehovahs will leads to the bright light of Heaven gate. Only Christs free will servants are permitted entrance to His Divine paradise He has predestined for us. There you will be welcomed with open loving arms and a crown made especially for you by Christ. There you will be surrounded by love of our master and our fellow servants. Your heart shall continuously be overflowing with joyous praise towards our Beloved. Peace shall envelope your heart like a warm blanket warms the body on a cold night.

Which will do you have? Be careful your eternity depends upon it.

The world says look at what I have done. The Christian says Look how Jehovah has blessed me. Joseph son of Jehovah

Being self centred only leads to a polluted river of selfishness of which the self centered must drink. It is the poison which kills love and nurtures hatred, greed, jealousy and bitterness. They shall drink copious amounts of this vile liquid. It shall kill their soul with a slow bitter death.

The more grateful the Christian is towards His loving Heavenly Father, His Divine Heavenly King and his amazing Holy Teacher the more they shall reward him with wisdom of their character and the manner in which the Christian shall enter into the Holiest of Holies ( a place of close Divine shared love with the Trinity and the Christian). This shall spur the Christian on to obey His Master more and more and shall cause His heart to sing songs of praise and glory to the giver of these blessings. It is all his mind and spirit craves for. The world is but rubbish compared to the glory our Beloveds love towards us.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the opportunity to serve such a magnificent King such as You. May my motto always be: ‘Not my will but Thy will be done oh my King. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do and to say that all glory, honour and praise may be given unto You.’. I praise You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

Are You Calling Jehovah a Liar?

 Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you calling Jehovah a liar?

Notice how He said for He will NEVER desert us nor forsake us. . That is a direct promise from Him unto us.

To forsake us means turn away from entirely. That is like saying you turn your back on someone. Jehovah will never turn His back on you as long as you never turn your back on Him. He will see your daily needs and supply you with them. Sometimes He will abundantly, sometimes frugally but always supply your daily needs.

If you turn your back on Him and refuse to obey Him then He most certainly will turn His back on you ( read about it in the Old Testament before the Israelites and Judeans were destroyed by the Chaldeans and Babylonians ).

It is not that Jehovah walks away from you but that you have walked away and turned your back on Him. Joseph son of Jehovah

To desert us means to leave usually without intent to return. That means to walk away from someone.

As long as you do not walk away from Jehovah, He will not walk away from you. He will never walk away from you when you are experiencing difficulties.

When you doubt your circumstances outcome you doubt that He will provide for you. That is calling Him a liar.

Notice how we are commanded to be content with what we have. That means we are not to be suckers and foolishly go out and get into debt ( which is becoming a slave by the way) buying things we do not need like a new car when there is nothing wrong with the old one, or buying a house you cannot afford or buying a new mobile phone just because it has some new gadget this year when there is nothing wrong with the old one. These things are a form of gluttony and pride. Both of them are disgusting unto Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful unto Your word to this loved child of Yours. I take great comfort and strength in Your Holy Word. I praise you in the name of the greatest Word of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Will Not be Listening.

 “So when you spread out your hands [in prayer, pleading for My help], I will hide My eyes from you; Yes, even though you offer many prayers, I will not be listening. Your hands are full of blood!” Isaiah 1:15The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When your hands are soaked with the blood of innocent folks do you absurdly believe He will listen to your prayers?

What blood, I have not murdered anyone you may say. Maybe not with a knife or pistol but have you cheated anyone lately? Because of this could it be that you are taking food from their mouth because they now do not have money for groceries?

Have you viciously gossiped about anyone lately? Does this not pierce their hearts like a knife while you wickedly laugh at their discomfort? What if it drove them to suicide? Their blood is on your hands.

Have you ever said a mean cruel word to someone just to intentionally hurt them? Again that is like piercing their hearts with a knife?

Every time you intentionally hurt someone with your words or actions that is like piercing their hearts. That blood is on your hands in the eyes of Jehovah and your prayers are like dung to Him.

How can a God of love bless anyone with a heart of vile hate and greed? Your prayers are in vain Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Roi. ( You are the God who sees ) correct me when I begin to stray from Your holy code of conduct because I never want to depart from our loving relationship. I cherish the times we spend every day in communion. I humbly ask this in the name of He who always walked in accordance to Your sanctified manner of conduct Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Cannot Even Enjoy Them.

 

 As to the riches of his labor, He cannot even enjoy them. Job 20:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In China they call themselves “ House Slaves”. This is because they are so much in debt that most of their money goes to pay for an over priced apartment ( they do not have houses in China and call apartments houses). They are afraid to go on vacation because someone may break in and steal all of their valuables. There is the constant upkeep of the residence.

How much of a difference is there in the rest of the world to this enslavement?

The more material wealth you possess the more of a slave you become. Joseph son of Jehovah.

There have been numerous studies done that prove the more material wealth you have the less happy you are and the more paranoid you become. The less real friendship you have.

Gee does that not sound like something you should be envious of?

Then why are you envious of the martially rich when you can have the riches of Heaven in your grasp?

“Few rich men own their own property. The property owns them .” Robert G. Ingersoll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with an abundant supply of Your Holy love and provisions for my daily life and shall continue to do so throughout my life here. Thank you that You have prepared an amazing eternal home for me. I exalt You in the name of He who shall greet me there Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not Set Your Heart on Them.

If riches increase, do not set your heart on them. Psalm 62:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many wealthy folks that material riches is their only thoughts day and night. They are never satisfied with what they have. They sacrifice their unhealthy everything: their physical health, their mental health, their relationships, and their place in Heaven in their desire for material gain. Worst of all they sacrifice their relationship with Jehovah for the dead god of wealth.

In todays world we see so much greed for material gains that this easily applies to the majority of society as well, even though they are in debt up to their eyeballs. They sacrifice a loving relationship with Jehovah for material things which are dead and cannot love them back.

Perhaps that is why depression is a pandemic today.

There is an old saying that says that when the times are good the churches are empty, when they times are bad the churches are full. I have witnessed this through many of decades of walking with Christ.

“Wherever riches have increased, the essence of religion has decreased in the same proportion.” John Wesley

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with Your daily provisions. Thank you for bountifully blessing me daily with Your Divine love which is the greatest treasure of all. I extol Thee in the name of the supreme treasure my Beloved best friend Jesus Christ. 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.

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.

Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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