Use it Carefully.



Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. Proverbs 13:24 New International Version

Do you notice the word “carefully” in this sentence?

Yes children need discipline but there is a difference between discipline and abuse. To beat or nag them or belittle them in public a child is abuse. To spank a child is discipline.

My mother used to spank us and send us to our room to think about what we had done, why it was wrong and to think of a good apology when we misbehaved. That method of reasoning has been carried throughout my life. In thinking about what I have done, why it is wrong and the correct way to make an apology.

Children need discipline or else how will they know right from wrong when they become adults?

Isn’t that the fundamental reason there are so many problems in society today?

Don’t you hate it when you see a screaming child in the supermarket because they can’t get what they want? A good swat soon stops that. How about when travelling long distance on a plane or bus. The parent tries to reason with the misbehaving child. The child laughs because they know there is no punishment and just keeps on misbehaving. Isn’t that annoying to everybody else on board?

My cousin tried that stunt with my grandma in a supermarket only once and he got a good swat for his efforts. He never tried that again with her.

Now of course when they become older like teenagers a different method is used such as taking away privileges.

As Christian we are emulate the greatest Teacher, Jesus Christ, for the best results. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah


Prayer: Jehovah Abba, please teach me to be a good parent like you. Teach me when and how to use the rod in order to raise Godly children which is a gift from you.
I humbly ask in the name of our big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

There are Two Ways Of



Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-31 New International Version

Remember the old pirate movies where they look through a spyglass.

Is that not the way many people look at conflicts?

Through one lens and that lens is their own opinion. They refuse to listen to anybody else. They speak, you listen. You speak, they don’t listen. It is called selective hearing and is the major problem in conflicts whether it is between parents and children (it is just as important for parents to listen to children as it is for children to listen to parents by the way), husbands and wives, or neighbors.

Instead it is important to look though binoculars to see the big picture.

We need to sit down with pen and paper and listen to what the other person has to say and write it down. While person A is speaking person B listens without interrupting and is writing down what is said. This is then repeated with person B speaking and person A listening.

Next try to look at how and why the other person feels the way they do.

If you cannot solve the problem between yourselves it is important to get someone who does not take sides and you both trust to mediate between you. You both agree to the mediator’s decision and act upon it. It is one thing to agree to it, it is just as important to act on it.

I have met many people that it was like talking to a wall. They pretended not to hear what I was saying because they didn’t care.

What I have learned is to inform them when they are just as willing to listen as they are to talk, we can continue. Then walk away. I do not give in to them no matter how much they pout like little babies, threaten and whine. Many times that means distancing myself from them. It has cost me many friendships but I am better off without them because they were very self centered and greedy.

Now of course it is different if you are married or it is parents and children living in the same place.

When I was a teacher and a student was naughty I did not scream and yell at them. I would sit them down and talk with them. They knew what they did was wrong. Just be patient with them. Once they admit what they did was wrong then we talk about how they can make it right. After that is settled we work on them making it right. If they were naughty to another student they would apologize to them in class. When they would have a difficult time doing this, teacher was right there softly encouraging them, informing them it was the right thing to do and I know you can do it. Then I would encourage the hurt child to forgive. Teacher would then give them big huggies and inform them he is proud of them. They love and respect teachers like that. I will tell you, the children in my classes were very well behaved. That is why I always got the worst classes. But, in two months there was a complete change.

So too is it necessary for us to do this with each other.

The Holy Spirit is the best mediator. He will show you how to heal a relationship and when to walk away. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (The Lord our provider) please provide me to have both eyes open to how to heal any broken relationship in my life. I ask in the name of He who has taught me to have eyes to see Jesus Christ. Amen.

That Pleases God

The kind of worship that pleases God will be Christ-centered and Spirit-led. To try to worship without faith in Christ is folly; to try to worship without the power of the Holy Spirit is hollow. Allen P. Ross

He Will Send Us

The Lord is my rock, my protection, my Savior. My God is my rock. I can run to him for safety. He is my shield and my saving strength, my defender. Psalms 18:2 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

When we walk close with Christ He will send us The Holy Spirit to guide and protect us.

Do you need strength? Peace? Wisdom? Direction? Discipline? Ask for it! God will hear you and send you His helper, The Holy Spirit Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

There have been so many times The Holy Spirit has guided me away form disasters and from con men and women.

There has been so many times I thought my way was the better way and argued with The Holy Spirit because I thought He was wrong. Against my mind saying ignore His advice I obeyed and boy was I ever glad I did.

When we walk in obedience with The Holy Spirit , He will shield us from the arrows that the wicked fire at us ( words said to upset us because they think it is funny ) and many times He will guide us with words that pierce the wicked like a flaming arrow or words that convict them and it is like burning coals upon their perverted minds. They become insane and start yelling and screaming like someone who is insane.

There are so many times we are exhausted, confused and afraid.

The Holy Spirit blesses us with strength, and confidence to continue on to victory ( I find it is when we are the closest to victory that satan comes at us the hardest to cause us to fail ).

There has been so many times when it seems as if there are more of them than me and they have more power than me. Then, events happen that destroys them that cannot be explained. That is the hand of The Holy Spirit defending us ( boy have I ever experienced a lot of those ).

Obey The Holy Spirit even when it does not make sense. You will always be glad you did. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for blessing me with providing me with The Holy Spirit to guide me, comfort me, encourage me and strengthen me. He is the best. I praise You in the name of He whose precious blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen

Here is His Reply

We have the neighbour from Hell living next door to us. He loves to pick fights and thinks we have to do everything on our property he demands we do. If he does not get his own way he is mean and spiteful.

When they ( his wife is just as bad ) first moved in and started causing problems I called the police and county for help.

They were absolutely useless ( Gee what are we paying taxes for again? ) .

Then the Lord spoke to me and said: What sorrow awaits those who look to Egypt for help, trusting their horses, chariots, and charioteers and depending on the strength of human armies instead of looking to the Lord,the Holy One of Israel. In his wisdom, the Lord will send great disaster; he will not change his mind.He will rise against the wicked and against their helpers. Isaiah 31:1-2 The Holy Bible The New Living Version

In essence He was saying: “ Why do you go to the police or the county for help? Am I not your God? Who knows how to handle him better: them or me? “

Then, He informed me to carry a camera with me at all times. When they misbehave, film it and give it to a lawyer. Let the lawyer handle it.

Since he has a long record of violence he has been told if he causes any trouble again he will be put away for good.

Poppa knew this and knew a lawyer would not be needed.

When I obeyed the Lords instructions, they instantly stopped their trouble making.

Fast forward five years and he has started it again.

This time I had a dream that there was a fast flowing river of pure water surrounding our land. A huge sink hole enveloped his property to be replaced by a calm, peaceful lake. The Lord spoke to me and said: “This is not your fault. He brought this on himself.”

The river represents Jehovahs protection and peace.

The sinkhole means it is game over for neighbours.

A few days later he started again.

We know he is off of his medication and smoking pot like a chimney ( which affects his brain function ). This morning he turned his radio on full blast a five o clock in the morning. He was looking to instigate a fight, as usual.

I prayed to the Lord for instruction on what to do.

Here is His reply: I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer .Rescue me, O Lord, from liars and from all deceitful people. O deceptive tongue, what will God do to you? How will he increase your punishment? You will be pierced with sharp arrows and burned with glowing coals. Psalms 120: 1-4 The Holy Bible The New Living Version

The arrows represent his heart which will be pierced with deep sorrow while the coals represent his brain boiling over with agony.

In other words, leave it in Jesus’ capable hands.

Jesus will not punish him.

He will allow allow him to self destruct while protecting me.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

There is always a time of reckoning whether for good or for bad. And, it shall be given back seven times in proportion to what you gave others. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Almakafi ( the lord our rewarder Hebrews 11:6 ) for being a rewarder to everyone whether they receive a blessing or a curse. You are a fair God and shall give back seven times more than we give whether good or bad. I praise you in the name of He who shall reward us all on the Day of Judgment, Jesus Christ. Amen
