He Has Given Me

 God did not give me a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given me a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

If Jehovah did not give it to us then who did?

It was satan that gave us a spirit of timidity where we are afraid to speak the truth. He did this to prevent us from from speaking the truth and bringing the lost to Christ. He also did it so that the wicked ones could gain power over the weak and abuse them to greater degrees. This has been done through out history where if the people spoke up in the beginning bad things like the Nazi’s would not have happened.

It was satan that gave us a spirit of cowardice so we would not stand up to bullies. This created terrible situations for entire societies (look again to Nazism). As well, he gave us a spirit of cowardice and fear so we would not step out into the unknown world Jesus is leading us to in service to Him.

Jehovah has, through faith, given us power to conquer evil folks and love to reach out to the unloved. He has blessed us with sound judgment so we will not fall for his schemes and scams. He gave us a spirit of discipline so we can grow in power in His spirit to live Godly lives.

This means living a life of having a well balanced mind that is balanced by the Holy Spirits guidance.

We have calmness by surrendering ourselves to Him and allowing Him to keep us calm in tense situations.

Through the Holy Spirit we gain self control (sometimes He keeps us under control, sometimes He reminds us of when we are losing it and depends upon us to make the effort of maintaining self control). Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for always being with me and helping me live a victorious life through You. I praise You in the name of He who I always try to imitate in every area of my life to bring You glory through my life just as He did, 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

So How’s That Going Now Eh?

FURNACE OF HELL

“Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10 New International; Version.

I remember in the sixties and seventies when the mantra was: sex, drugs and rock and roll. Being an infant in Christ I knew this was wrong and refused to go along with the crowd. Yes I was laughed at and bullied a lot, but still wouldn’t back down.

Now over forty years later when I go back home sometimes I run into that crowd. Boy do they look ancient. Their bodies are all broken down from living in the fast lane. They are shells of human beings. They have no family or real friends. They have no real purpose in life, yet stubbornly cling to those destructive dogmas. Many of them are either homeless or living in decrepit buildings.  I look at them and ask them: “So how’s that going now eh, with your sex, drugs and rock and roll?” 

It is not that I am being arrogant towards them but am asking if they have had enough of this life and am willing to come to Christ. They all laugh and are proud of their lifestyle (although I do not know why) and mock me for being a Christian.

No man is free who is a slave to the flesh. Seneca

I on the other hand have slowly over decades  blossomed into a beautiful flower for Christ. Yes my service to Him has been hard, but He was and is with me every step of the way. We have planted a lot of seeds all over the world. Walking with Jesus brings a life filled with divine love, joy and hope.

If someone is trying to manipulate you into doing drugs or having premarital sex don’t walk away from them, RUN.

As surely as the sun rises is the east so too will the vile wickeds lifestyle lead to pain, emptiness, heartache and loneliness. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Take it from an old fart that has both lived it and seen it. You are too precious to Jesus to throw your life away.

”If we (freely) admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins (dismiss our lawlessness) and (continuously) cleanse us from all unrighteousness (everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action)” 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

If you are living that lifestyle now call out to Jesus now. He is always there, He always cares. He loves you.

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him firm in your faith, the God of all grace, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.” 1 Peter 5: 6-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with the wisdom of what is righteous and the strength to walk in its path and to not deviate from it. Thank you for being so gracious as to forgive me when I stray from that path and realize it and repent You eagerly help me to regain my footing upon the Path of Righteousness. I exalt You in the name of He who is the epitimy of righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

One of the Most Important Things

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalm 143:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

One of the most important things learned in life is that our greatest lessons are learned from our failures.

Just look up any invention and find out how many times the inventor failed before finally having success.

When we mess up we fess up and Jehovah forgives us, picks us up and tells us okay, you messed up, now learn your lesson and continue on towards you maturity in your walk towards Heaven.

If you have not learned your lesson, do not worry, Jehovah will allow it to be repeated until it is learned.

I believe failure is the greatest tool the Holy Spirit uses to teach us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The more we learn from our failures and how the Holy Spirit guides us to success from them them more we become firmly established upon the path to Heaven the Holy Spirit is guiding us on. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is one of the greatest crimes parents and teachers commit with children. They do not let them learn from their failures.

Prayer:Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your wise, powerful and effective manner of teaching me. May it always help to evolve my relationship with my loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah loving big brother Jesus and You the most amazing Teacher ever closer and stronger.                                                                                                                 I give thanks and humbly ask of these blessings in the name of the best Teacher 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

They Know it Too.

 For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it.  They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. Romans 2:13-15 

A question that is frequently asked of us Christians is what about those who have not heard about Jehovah? How can that be fair that He casts them into Hell when they have never heard about Him? How can a loving God do that? That is unfair.

Even those with no education of Christianity know there is a Supreme God by their consciences.

They know it too. After all, who imputes it into their thoughts what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, they will have no excuse when they face Jesus at the Judgment throne.

When you study ancient history every religion points back to the God of creation.

Those that reject Jehovah here, deserve to be rejected by Him in Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Today, society in the west, has become dependent upon electronics and most folks live in a city so they are removed from the wonder of Gods creation (do you think it strange that most of the so called atheists live in the city while most of those with a deep religious conviction live in the boondocks). Those in the city get their perception of nature from perverted minds that teach that animals are like people and that animals can be treated like cute lovable toys (like in the movies). I have seen it with catastrophic results when planting trees every year. They do not have a clue what it is like to live off of the land or how to behave around wild animals. The same goes for hunting. You live on a farm or ranch and see how fast you buy are rifle to protect your crops and or livestock.

The closer you get to nature the closer you get to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for the wonderful honour of You revealing Yourself to me through Your incredible creation. It amazes me and creates a heart and mind that worships and respects You all the more. I praise You in the name of He who was there with You in the beginning Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Removing Obstacles that Block Your Way

 Every man did what was right in his own eyes. Judges 17:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

That sounds a lot like today.

When you study history it is like a never ending circle.

First folks join together and work as a community and are respectful towards Jehovah. Then, when they begin to prosper they forget Jehovah. Because they forget Jehovah they have no spiritual guidance and fall into a very degenerative lifestyle which ultimately destroys their society.

Read the Book of Judges in the Bible and then study any history you want, European, Asian, Middle East, African. They are all the same.

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Proverbs 3:5-6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Now this is the wise man and womans choice of life. We trust in Jehovah more and more as we get closer and closer to Him in a loving obedient life. For some it comes quickly but for most of us it takes decades to develop this trust (it is not Jehovahs fault nor ours. Being humans it takes time to develop this lifestyle). He never leads us wrong. We rely upon Jehovah for our daily portion of spiritual, mental and physical nourishment. He always supplies us. Because we are human our intellect is inferior to Jehovahs. The wise man and woman rely upon Him for guidance. He leads us away from disaster and towards victory.

I acknowledge Him to others when they ask why I live the way I do. I know with all my heart He loves me so therefore He only wants what is best for me.

The more time we spend with our Beloved, the more we are in tune with His voice and recognize it over the sly serpent (satan). The result of this is a fulfilling life of love, peace, joy, purpose and meaning. What more could one ask for in life? Trust Jehovah, He will never lead you wrong. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for always being honest with me in guiding me down the proper path to take in life. It has prevented a lot of unnecessary hardship, sorrow and pain. I venerate You in the name of my Divine Heavenly Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Life Without.

                                                            

Blessed [with wisdom and prosperity] is the man whom You discipline and instruct, O Lord, And whom You teach from Your law .Psalm 94:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see many idiots now proclaiming that it should be legal for folks to use any drug they want and it will not be illegal. To them I merely ask them to research history and see what it was like in the eighteen hundreds and see what it did to families and to societies.

I see many that do not believe in incarceration for criminals and then cry because crime goes up (oh statistics may say it is going down but that is because people do not want to report it because they not only do not see justice done but then the criminals harrass them and the police are helpless).

I see many idiots saying there should not be any corporate punishment in class and then cry baby because the students are unruly and down right violent.

There must be discipline in life or the individuals life and societies will go right down the toilet. And the best discipline come from Jehovah because He and only He know what is truly right from what is wrong.

A society risks disaster that ignores Jehovahs commands. If you doubt me just look up and countries history. Every time they became liberal they ended up in huge disasters. War, crime, famine and disease were their rewards.

A life without Divine discipline is a life of confusion Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for disciplining this sometimes very naughty child of Yours to continuously mold him to become You loving sanctified child. Sorry for being occasionally naughty. I pray this in the name of Your most devoted child 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

By Far More Christian Than

                                                  

 There is no [distinction between] Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, [nor between nations whether] barbarian or Scythian, [nor in status whether] slave or free, but Christ is all, and in all [so believers are equal in Christ, without distinction]. Colossians 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 Do you notice the mention of the Scythian and wonder who they were?

Scythian the 8th century BC, they possibly raided Zhou China. At their peak, Scythians came to dominate the entire steppe zone,stretching from the Carpathian Mountains in the west to central China (Ordos culture).

When I was a teacher in China some Chinese Christians were sharing with me how Christianity came to China early in the first century A.D. When I looked up who they were on wikipedia.org it fits perfectly what my Christian sisters were informing of. It took me about three years to come to grips with what they were saying but searching the scriptures proved they were right.

I believe we in the west are arrogant in believing that Christianity is mostly a western religion.

When I studied Chinese Christianity and saw how they behaved they were by far more Christian than the majority of so called Christians in the west.

As well their Bible is different form the wests (for example the only apostle they have is Thomas because he was the only one of Christs disciples to travel there and they have the Book of Enoch in their Bible) and I found it more in line with true Christianity.

As well on the bus going to church the Chinese Christians and we excitedly shared with what Jehovah had done in our lives that week(The members from the west were very annoyed by it.They preferred to talk about pop music, the latest movies or TV shows or fashion- the material world- rather than Christ in their lives).

How many western Christians get excited to talk about what Jehovah has done in their lives?

On the way back we would discuss the sermon.

How many so called western Christians discuss the sermon after service?

Before church they would have prayer meetings and after church they would have Bible study classes.

How many churches have that every Sunday- indeed, how many even teach from the Bible any more?

Most of them have suffered a great deal by becoming Christians.

How many in the west are willing to suffer for Christ?

Do not tell me you are a Christian, show me. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

We in the west can learn so much of true worship from our Chinese Christian brothers and sister.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah God of knowledge bless me with abundant knowledge of how to be a loving obedient child of Yours every day.Please ingrain it into every molecule of my being so as to glorify You. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the all knowing 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

When a People Forget God

                                        

For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to support the errors they hold.2 Timothy 4:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We do not live in a free society in the west anymore.

So many have turned their backs upon Jehovah and refuse to listen to Him. Indeed they are very offended by righteous morals. Yes there is absolute right and absolute wrong and it can only be found in the Bible.

We see law after law suppressing our rights to appease wicked men and women. In society today we see very little of good morals (it is all about me and it is not my fault is todays mantra).

We have a legal system but not a justice system.

There is no moderation it is buy, buy, buy. All the time going deeper into debt and becoming slaves to the big banks.

There is no frugality today. No one saves for the hard times and then cries for the government or mom or dads ATM to rescue them.

We see everybody screaming about how they have their rights but few talking about how they have their responsibility.

Be fare warned.

History does repeat itself.

Look at the past to see what is coming our way real soon.

Do not forget that the roaring twenties was preceded by the dirty thirties. Look at what has happened in every society when they became liberal and what happened to them (hint, it was not pretty nor pleasurable).

Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of infidels or idolaters should be a nation of freemen. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles” Patrick Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be a voice into this sewer of filthy sin that premeats our society today to bring them into Your Holy government which is the Supreme government. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the Righteous King of all governments Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you A house full of sunshine, Hearts full of cheer, Love that grows deeper each day of the year.  Welsh blessing

Remind Me How Much I Need

When the righteous cry [for help], the Lord hears And rescues them from all their distress and troubles. Psalm 34:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

It is in our greatest time of need that we grow the closest to Christ. The problem is to grow in our relationship with Him during the good times.

We see it not only in history but also in private lives.

Is it not curios that during the depression there was the greatest amount of church attendance but during the good times there is the least attendance in churches?

If you only call upon Jehovah when you need Him and neglect Him during the good times what makes you foolishly believe He will come to your aid at all?

“There’s nothing like a good crisis to increase my energy and remind me how much I need God.” Anne Christian Buchanan

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with always being there with me through all my troubles. Thank You my love for always being there. I cherish our times spent together both in the good times and the bad. Thank you that it is in the times of trouble that You teach me so much. I praise Thee in the name of He who calmed the troubled seas for His disciples 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
