Warn Those Who Are

BEING TORN DOWN SPIRITUALLY

 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 The Holy Bible New International Version

Notice it does not say to support the lazy trouble makers?

I see so many good hearted but wrong minded support the lazy drunks and drug addicts and welfare bums that foolishly believe we owe them a free ride.

That is wrong.

You are not helping them but hurting them by encouraging them to continue on in a destructive lifestyle for both themselves and for society (because many commit crimes to support their habit which hurts innocent folks).

There is an old saying that idle hands are the devils playground. Do you notice that drug addicts are also habitual criminals? Perhaps doing time in a third world prison would do them more good than holding their hand and encouraging this lifestyle because there is no repercussions for their actions.

They are to be warned that their lifestyle is wrong. If they choose to continue on then do so on their own and face harsh consequences for their actions.

Our financial, mental and spiritual efforts are to go to help those who are willing to put forward an effort to help themselves.

To support lazy bums and drunks and drug addicts is a sin because it is a waste of our resources which should go to help those who are prepared to help themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) bless me with providing me with guidance to those who are in need and with the wisdom to differentiate between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. I humbly request this in the name of He who provided only to those who put forward and effort to help themselves Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

You Must Clothe Yourselves With

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

  Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is too little of tender hearted mercy today. Tender hearted mercy means that our hearts ache when we see someone in need. We make a commitment to help them where they cannot help themselves (do not mistake that for refuse to help themselves. If drug addicts refuse to take the steps necessary to destroy the habit all you help is nothing more than a crutch to them which does not help them). This is not a one day event or token kindness like giving to the food bank (although there is nothing wrong with that) but rather a long term commitment.

So if there is a youngster that is having problems in life us older generation should come along side of them and offer them our experiences, both good and bad (yes it is good for the younger generation to hear of our failures to help them see that we were just like them).

We must exhibit kindness, especially to the elder generation. If a senior needs someone to cut their grass or shovel the snow from their driveway we are to offer to help them (be careful not to be abused though. Just because they are seniors does not mean they cannot be manipulative, indeed most seniors I know are very manipulative.

That is why it is so important to pray to Jehovah to guide you to where your help is appreciated).

We must be there to strengthen the weak when temptation comes a knocking at their door. We have all opened that door when we should not have from time to time so we know what they are going through.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. Sometime in life you will have been all of these. Lloyd Shearer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless this child of Yours to emulate Your love with all those I encounter today so as to be a light to guide them to the most incredible love affair there ever can be or will. I humbly request this in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Before God Has a Chance To

GTTING CLOSE WITH GOD

 

 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me.” Psalm 81:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you yap and run?

Most times, I am ashamed to admit, that I do.

You know, where you say your prayers, say:”Thanks for listening Jehovah”, and begin your day or go to sleep.

I have begun to get into the habit of laying quiet for about ten minutes after prayer to see if the Lord has anything to say in reply. Usually He does. He fills me with a sense of peace.

Why not give it a try today and make it a practice every day.

Now it makes one wonder if there is anything more valuable or worthy of your time than just spending time with He whose love reigns supreme in your heart.

“The trouble with nearly everybody who prays is that he says “Amen” and runs away before God has a chance to reply. Listening to God is far more important than giving Him your ideas.” — Frank Laubach

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with the most delightful conversations even when some of them are difficult to hear I know they are all for my own good because of Your divine love for me. I praise You in the name of He who spoke the choices words of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Changes Me.

CONTINUAL CONVERSATION

  Rejoice always and delight in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being persistent means to make it a habit.

Make it a habit to commune with our Beloved first thing in the morning.

Make it a habit to commune with Him through out the day.

Make it a habit to commune with Him before bed.

Make Him your choicest companion in which you share all of your hurts and dreams. Share with Him in your victory and defeats.

In each of these thank Jehovah. Thank Him that He listens to you.

Thank Him that He cares about you.

Thank Him that He always wants what is best for you (this is especially important in our defeats and when His answer for our dreams are not answered in the way in which we desire).

Have faith in His providence that He only wants what is best for you even when it does not seem like it to you.

Prayer does not change things but rather it changes me. Sincere prayer opens us up to Holy communion with our Beloved Father in Heaven. As we commune with Him our prayers are less self centred (gimme, gimme, gimme) and more Christ centred (Lord I desire to be like You.) and more personal, like a conversation between two loving friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me the proper manner in which to converse with You and to make it the most joyful habit I have. I Your wonderful name I pray. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

This is a Just Punishment

THE DEVIOUS REWARD

For But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble and sin[by leading him away from My teaching], it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone [as large as one turned by a donkey] hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version           

Perhaps Jesus warning here is so severe because children are so impressionable, they are easy to influence. This is a just punishment for teaching lies that pollute the mind and entice it to sin, many times the sin becomes a destructive habit.

In my country they are teaching the lies that homosexuality is normal and okay to practice. I believe there is a special place in Hell for those teaching this satanic filth. I do not say that as a curse but rather because I believe that is how much it infuriates Jehovah. The more severe the sin, the harsher the punishment. They are also preaching disgusting lies like you can be anything you want to be if you just put your mind to it. This is directly contrary to what Jesus informs us.

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You cannot be politically correct and Christ correct. Choose wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) smack these wicked perverts that are destroying the minds of the innocent and luring them into a filthy destructive lifestyle. May Your strong hand punish them in an appropriate manner. I request this in the name of the mighty King that shall cast them into Hell where they belong Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

True religion is . . .

 WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world. James 1:27 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Religion is described as a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

A principle of the heart; in my love for Jehovah and my fellow man

An element of the character of Christ residing with in me;

The habit of thinking, feeling, and acting according to the statutes of Jehovah in all my social relations;

The basis of every virtue which emulates the righteousness of Christs character ;

The main prop of every preforming with all of my mind, body and spirit to excel in service unto our Heavenly King ;

The fear – not just the punishment for the wicked in His terrible justice but to have constant respect and awe of Him but of the Lord, by which men depart from evil;

Faith which means trust working by love to accomplish with total zest all the tasks my Beloved Heavenly Father assigns for me to do;

Such a belief in the gospel of Christ, as leads to a conformity to His example in every aspect of my daily life.

True religion, though founded on a belief of doctrines, and nourished by the exercises of devotion—diffuses its influence over the entire character of man to make him Holy as Christ is holy.

True religion is the belief in Jesus Christ, the love of Jesus Christ, the worship of Jesus Christ, and the imitation of Jesus Christ.

True religion is sound morality, animated and sanctified by the Holy Spirit of true devotion to Christ in all of my deeds and words.

True religion prescribes, not only homage to God, but allows Him dominion into every part of my daily life..

It is all or nothing with Jesus. Either you belong totally to Him or you belong to satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emet (God of truth) continuously expand Thy Divine truth in my spirit and mind of the proper manner in which to daily, moment by moment focus on devoting myself to Your Supreme religion. I meekly request this in the name of He whose every aspect of His earthly journey focused on showing us the proper manner in which to have Your religion supreme in our lives Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Fights Against It.

 

                                                                 

So now [if that is the case, then] it is no longer I who do it [the disobedient thing which I despise], but the sin [nature] which lives in me.  For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh [my human nature, my worldliness—my sinful capacity]. For the willingness [to do good] is present in me, but the doing of good is not. For the good that I want to do, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. Romans 7:17-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is a constant battle.

Although we are Christians in spirit we are still flesh and blood with fleshly desires that fight against the spirit.

How many times have we spoken foolishly with words that hurt others (whether intentional or unintentional)?

How many times have we looked at someone and wanted to jump in the sack with them (yes women do it as well as men)?

How many times have we looked down on another because of their race, nationality or social standing?

These things are said to be natural and they are, for the flesh.

But as Christians we are to live super natural lives.

We cannot succeed on our own initiative.

Thankfully we have the ultimate superpower readily available to assist us. His name is the Holy Spirit.

I cannot count the number of times I call upon Him every day. It is so reassuring to know He is always there and deeply gratifying as well. He has prevented numerous disasters in my daily life.

Make a habit of always opening your mouth to Him first before you open it to someone else Always make a habit of running to Him before you run to your fleshly desires first. It prevents untold painful catastrophes

The true Christian hates sin, flees from it, fights against it, considers it his greatest plague, resents the burden of its presence, mourns when he falls under its influence, and longs to be completely delivered from it.”J.C. Ryle

Prayer: Please JehovahMa’oz (Lord my Fortress) bless me to always be able to take shelter in Your strong fortress when the enemy comes attacking my mine with destructive thought which are repugnant unto both You and I. Please bless me with the proper weapons to defeat the wicked foe when He comes slithering into my daily life so as to remain a righteous child of Yours. I humbly request this in the name of He who used Your Holy Scripture to defeat His foe in the wilderness 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
