To protect your heart and mind you must get close with Jesus. Not only will His law ( God Law ) protect your heart but will help you live a much better physical life. In countries that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of His law it will protect you from the tyrants in the government. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah
Everyone lies to his neighbors; they say one thing and mean another. Psalms 12:2 The Holy Bible The New Century Version
They say, “Our tongues will help us win. We can say what we wish; no one is our master.” Psalms 12:4 The Holy Bible The New Century Version
Can you imagine a politician answering a question truthfully?
Can you imagine an entire newscast or daily paper publishing an entire paper without any lies?
Can you imagine if companies told you the truth about their products?
Can you imagine if teachers taught the truth to their students instead of brain washing them with the politically correct nonsense ( and it is no- sense as it is not sensible )
Wow, what an earth shattering day that would be huh?
Can you imagine if the health officials told us the truth about the covid vaccines?
They are arrogant and think they have impunity and are getting away with it.
Can you imagine if they were held accountable for their lies?
Do not worry, they are.
Jehovah is a just judge and there is no manipulating their way out of their punishment.
The Lord will stop those flattering lips and cut off those bragging tongues. Psalms 12:3 The Holy Bible The New Century Version
But the Lord says, “I will now rise up, because the poor are being hurt. Because of the moans of the helpless, I will give them the help they want.” Psalms 12:5 The Holy Bible The New Century Version
But the wicked are all around us; everyone loves what is wrong. Lord, you will keep us safe; you will always protect us from such people. Psalms 12:8-7 The Holy Bible The New Century Version
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses ) that the wicked shall receive their appropriate punishment for their vile deeds. I praise You in the name of He whose anger is hot against these wicked souls, Jesus Christ. Amen Seleh stop and think about it.

There is a way which looks right to a man, but its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12 The Holy Bible The New Living Testament
Do you remember about the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the towns around them?
The people in those cities did the same things. They were full of sex sins and strong desires for sinful acts of the body. Those cities were destroyed by fire. They still speak to us of the fire of hell that lasts forever. Jude 1:7 The Holy Bible The New Living Testament
Today, many are scratching their heads and wondering how so many selfish, arrogant politicians are getting elected.
Could it be that birds of a feather lock together. The politicians are of the same manner as most in society today. They are spoiled, gimme, gimme ( while offering nothing in return ), lazy, ungrateful brats. They pull temper tantrums when they do not get their own way and run like cowards while screaming we are abusing them ( everything wrong in the world is the white mans fault, I can do what I want ( try to con impressive children into destructive behaviour like homosexuality, be a boy and go into a girls washroom ), and intolerant of them because they refuse to accept the truth when we speak it.
Be fair warned.
History teaches that every time society goes down this path, it self destructs.
The righteous may suffer hard times because of this but they will not suffer the punishment of the wicked.
“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.”P.J. O’Rourke
Seleh means to stop and think about it. Let’s think about how many times we have thanked Jehovah for His gifts whether they be big or small. Let us stop and think of how many times we have offered our time, resources and or labour to Him as a gift of love and appreciation.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit to make me sensitive to the gifts You bless me with and how to use those gifts to help others as a way to show my appreciation unto You. I praise You in the name of He who offered His life so I may have an eternal one with You, Jesus Christ. Amen

Jesus said, “All that the Father gives me shall come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out” (John 6:37).
The answer to the question, are you one of the elect of God, is answered by another question: Have you believed on Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? If you have responded to His free grace, and have believed on Him alone for salvation, you should know that you are one who was given to Jesus before the foundation of the world.
When Jesus was praying to the Father the night before His sacrificial death on the cross He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee, even as Thou gavest Him authority over all mankind, that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He may give eternal life” (John 17:1-2).
Jesus is referring to the covenant between God the Father and God the Son when God gave to Jesus in salvation that great company for whom He would go to the cross and die.
His death provided the objective and judicial basis whereby the elect would be saved.
The prophet Isaiah spoke of that day in his poem of the Suffering Servant. “But the LORD was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief; if He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, and the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand. As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities” (Isa. 53:10-11).
Jesus went to the cross the next day knowing that His death would secure the salvation of all whom God had given Him (Jn. 17:2, 6, 8, 11, 12). He had the satisfaction that night of knowing that His substitutionary death would secure our salvation.
Jesus, as our Sovereign Savior, has authority over all mankind to give salvation to all whom God has given Him. Thank God, because we were dead in our trespasses and sins and unable to come to Christ unless He first gives eternal life to us (Eph. 2:1-5). If the Holy Spirit is pleading with you, please respond to Him now and receive God’s free gift of eternal life. This is the very evidence you are longing for because of His dealings with you. He raises the spiritually dead and gives life.
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. He did not have to save anyone. It is His sovereign grace that reaches down to us and draws us to Himself. Will you not respond to His pleading even now? He has the authority and power to break our rebellious will, and quicken our dead spirit so that we will respond to Him in faith.
Jesus Christ gives eternal life to everyone the Father has given Him. He is just in following His eternal plan of redemption whether you and I agree or not. He is the Sovereign King. He shows mercy to whom He will. God is showing mercy to you now. Will you respond to His pleas?
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13).
How do you know you are one of the elect of God? Have you believed on Jesus?
SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

In fact, if the God of my father had not been on my side the God of Abraham and the fearsome God of Isaac, you would have sent me away empty-handed. But God has seen your abuse and my hard work. That is why he appeared to you last night and rebuked you!” Genesis 31:42 The Holy Bible ,The New Living Translation
Sometimes we all get shafted at a job or in a transaction.
Welcome to life.
We who belong to Jehovah however, have a mediator who will always send warnings to the abuser.
If they refuse to obey the warnings the strong hand of the Lord will punish them.
Now we may not get what we are owed but alt least we have satisfaction in knowing the guilty will not go unpunished.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hashopet (Judges 11:27 The LORD the Judge ) for blessing me with Your Divine judgment that no one can escape. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen
SELAH means to pause and reflect- just think of that!

At the Jewish trial of Jesus, the high priest Caiaphas found himself in a dilemma. He was losing his case before the Roman governor Pilate. The evidence did not add up. The false witnesses did not agree with one another (Mark 14:59; Matt. 26:59-62).
The star witness did not show. According to Jewish law, Judas who arranged for the arrest of the offender had to be the person to make the formal legal accusation. Because Judas realized he had betrayed innocent blood he did not arrive at the hastily arranged trials and the Sanhedrin lost valuable time trying to come up with witnesses to sustain their accusations. By not being at the trial Judas was actually testifying the opposite that Jesus was innocent.
Pilate, knowing Jesus was innocent tried to set Him free.
Jesus had remained silent before His accusers, and this astonished Pilate, and frustrated the high priest.
Suddenly in desperation Caiaphas turned on Jesus and demanded, “I charge You under oath by the living God that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God” (Matthew 26:63).
The form of the question put to Jesus was brilliant. If Caiaphas had asked if Jesus were the Messiah, it would not have been a capital offense.
Furthermore, concerning the question of being the Son of God Jesus earlier had quoted Psalm 82:6, “You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High.” In the context God was calling the Jewish judges “gods,” therefore they could not accuse Him of blasphemy for calling Himself God’s Son. God was not speaking of a divine nature in man when He called them “gods” (Ex. 21:6; 22:8). Moreover, they called themselves “gods” because they were created in the image and likeness of God, and were His representatives. The point Jesus was making was if God calls human judges “gods” then why should they stone Him? He proved to the Jews that when He calls Himself the Son of God, He did not blaspheme God (Jn. 10:34-36). His whole life is done in the perfect will of the Father. Jesus uses the Psalm to contrast His divine sonship, prior to time, with theirs which began only in the present time.
However, the high priest so phrased his calculating question in such a way that He would have to respond to it. “I adjure You by the living God,” he asked Jesus, “that you tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.”
How did he know to ask that question? Judas had instructed him.
Now if Jesus answered, “Yes” to the statement it would be blasphemy to His accusers.
Jesus spoke up for the first time in the proceedings saying, “You have said it yourself” (Matt. 26:64). This is an affirmative reply in the original language. “Yes, it is as you say,” Jesus replied (NIV). “Plainly, I am” (Mk. 14:62).
Then Jesus quoted the Old Testament prophet Daniel to give evidence to the declaration. “You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you shall see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heavens” (Matt. 26:64).
Jesus clarified for His judges the kind of Messiah and Son of God He was by quoting Daniel 7:13-14. “I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, and He came up to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion, glory and a kingdom that all the peoples, nations and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.”
Caiaphas got more than he wanted. He got a conviction from the lips of the accused, but he also got the powerful evidence that will one day convict Him before God’s great throne of justice. The day will come when Jesus will be the Judge of Caiaphas.
Jesus quoted a passage that will be fulfilled at His Second Coming (Matt. 24:30; 25:31; Rev. 11:15; Psa. 2:6-9; Phil. 2:11). The Son of Man will establish “an everlasting dominion.” His kingdom will never be conquered and will never come to an end. He will reign as King of kings and Lord of lords for all eternity (Matt. 24:30; Mk. 13:26; 14:62; Lk. 21:27; Rev. 1:7, 13; 14:14).
“The high priest tore his clothes and said, ‘He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?’ ‘He is worthy of death,’ they answered” (Matt. 26:65-55).
The judges came to the right conclusion, but the wrong judgment. According to the testimony of the Jewish Scriptures Jesus is “the Messiah, the Son of God.” But the judges refused to personally believe the evidence before them. They remained in their stubborn, willful unbelief. They were blind spiritually and dead in their trespasses and sins. A dark veil remained over their minds.
Jesus is the only legitimate Jewish Messiah. He is the King of righteousness (Isa. 32:1-10; Jer. 23:5-8; 30:8-9; 33:14-18); the Divine servant of Yahweh (Isa. 52:13-15); born of a virgin (Isa. 7:14; Lk. 1:26-30; Matt. 1:24-25); in the town of Bethlehem (Micah 5:2; Lk. 2:1-7); from the royal line of King David (2 Sam. 7:12-16; Isa. 11:1-23; Matt. 1:1-16; Lk. 3:23-37); performed the works of righteousness (Isa. 61:1-2; Lk. 4:16-21; Matt. 11:1-6); the coming Messiah Prince (Dan. 2, 7, 9, 12); entered Jerusalem as a king (Zech. 9:9; Matt. 21:1-11); betrayed by a friend (Psa. 41:9; Matt. 26:14-15; 27:3-8); the precious fountain opened (Zech. 13:1-7); the Messenger of the Covenant (Mal. 3:1); the Sun of Righteousness (Mal. 4:1), etc.
Jesus Christ is the only unique Son of God (Psa. 2:7; Isa. 9:6; 7:14; John 3:16). He is God with us (Isa. 7:14; John 1:14, 18; Lk. 1:35; Rev. 21:3; John 20:31). He is the child with many names (Isa. 9:1-6), and our blessed hope (11:1-12).
“Why do we need any more witnesses? . . . What do you think?” We, too, are in the same position as Caiaphas and his friends. What will you decide to do with Jesus based upon the facts from God’s Word? Just like Caiaphas your decision will determine your eternal destiny.
For a more detailed study of these great evidences in Scriptures, please go to our studies on Christ in the Old Testament. Selah!
