So Too Will You Become

But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! John 15:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Do you see the two important parts to this verse?

The first part is to remain in Jehovah. That means to have a continuous loving relationship with Him.

If someone only comes to you when they want something and give nothing in return, why would you even look at them much less grant them their desires. They are nothing more than users and abusers.

The same is true of Jehovah.

Why would He grant you your desires if you have no desire to be in a loving relationship with Him?

The second part is obeying His words.

So if the Bible, His words, tells you not to do something, like participate in homosexuality, and you do why would you expect anything from Him.

If the Bible, His word tells you to do something, like forgive someone who has offended you, why should you expect Him to grant your petition to Him?

Now it is okay to ask for personal requests like healing from a physical ailment but keep centered on the spiritual.

As Jehovah is spiritual so too will you become more spiritual than worldly in your daily life and your prayer requests. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah ( God of knowledge.Romans 11:33 ) send the best mentor there is, the Holy Spirit to teach me the proper manner in which to conduct myself as a loving obedient child of Yours. I have a deep desire to draw ever closer with You with each and every breath. I humbly beseech You in the name of Your most precious son who was obedient towards You all the way to the horrifying cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are Very Arrogant

A righteous man hates lies, But a wicked man is loathsome, and he acts shamefully. Proverbs 13:5 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Have you ever wondered why you hate it when you hear someone tell lies (even if they seem harmless) ?

It is because we imitate that which we love.

So, just as Jehovah hates lies and liars so too do we.

Loathsome is described as causing feelings of loathing; disgusting; revolting; repulsive.

Personally speaking, I find liars and braggarts to be particularly disgusting and repulsive. I have to run from them before I either explode or feel strongly sick to my stomach.

I believe that is exactly how Jehovah feels and a quick reference in your Bible will prove it. When they are a family member, it makes me want to cry seeing them walk the path of ultimate destruction and knowing they are too full of themselves to listen.

Again, I know that, that is exactly how Jehovah feels from reading and understanding the Bible.

Liars are very arrogant and believe they are gods in their own eyes. Many times they look down on others and feel no shame in lying to get what they desire at someones elses expense.

Eventually, Jehovah has enough of them and then allows them to reap what they sow. It is a terrible thing to witness and rips the heart apart even though we know they deserve what they are getting.

Stay away from them, they only bring heartache, pain and disaster. They are truly the devils children.

Hell is full of the arrogant. Heaven is full of the humble. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) to teach me Your irrefutable truth. Thank you for opening my eyes to the destructive life of liars and to avoid interacting with them less they entice me to follow their footsteps to Hell. I thank you in the name of He who not only spoke nothing but the truth but lived it as well, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the God of truth protect you from the lying vipers that slither through out this land and guide you to not become one of them.

Their Own Actions Do.

 Hate what is sinful. Romans 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Do you notice that when you see something sinful you get disgusted and angry, like homosexuals kissing on TV?

When you are a Christian that is good.

That means you heart is aligned with Jehovahs. Make, no mistake about it, He hates wickedness.

That does not mean we are to have vendettas against the wicked.

We should lovingly bring them into the Truth.

If they reject it, they are rejecting Christ, not you. That should bring great agony to our hearts because in rejecting Christ, they are condemning themselves to Hell.

Liberalism says if it feels good do it. Christ says obey my commands or you will destroy yourself, you chose. I will send you the Holy Spirit and He will teach you right from wrong. Reject Him to your own peril.

Christ does not condemn anyone, their own actions do. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) for lighting the way to live a decent healthy lifestyle and to detest the filth that is committed by those that relish walking in the dung of sin and arrogantly participating in it for all to see. Please guide my heart not to hate them but to pray that they see and accept the Light into their lives before the damn themselves to eternal Hell. I sincerely request this in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Believe It or Not There Are

 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Believe it or not there are folks that live as if they believe they are sinless.

Whenever the do something wrong they quickly make up excuses for why A: that it not what really happened,

B: it was not their fault or

C: it is okay because everyone else is doing it.

Trying to convince them of their wrong doing is exhaustive.

I have found the best last response to these lies is :

“You may lie to me and if you repeat the lie enough, even convince yourself, but you cannot con Jesus.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

and then walk away.

It shocks even the so called “unbelievers”.

Many times we commit sins without even knowing it. That is why we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits guidance and quickly repent of the sin before its roots grow too deep. Then, it is a real battle to conquer them. With the help of the Holy Spirit this can be accomplished.

Pull out your sins when they first occur to prevent them from taking root unless you want a real battle on your hands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent ( which means we are to admit what we did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness, stop committing the sin and make restitution for the offence committed- so if we sold something from someone we are to give it back), Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies Me) bless me with the Holy Spirits help to convict me when I grieve You and the help me repent so as to remain a child of Your with whom You are well pleased. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose blood brought me redemption Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What Will Happen To

 The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us.

We were respectful and friendly with them.

Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes. This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart. But the sad thing is that:

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy. And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conutit to guide them to Him.

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) bless me with helping me discern the difference between those that need help and those that are parasites upon society. The one my heart dance with joy for the opportunity to help. The other is a waste of time, energy and resources. I humbly request this in the name of He who only gave salvation to those who were willing to become His servants and work for His kingdoms interest Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Same is True with Our

 Being a natural path practitioner for over forty years it always amazes me at the stupidity and laziness of folks. They come to me with an ailment and we talk about it. When it is suggested they make lifestyle changes they become very indignant and refuse to accept responsibility for their own lives. They would rather take a magic pill or lotion to cure them of their ailment.

The same is true with our spiritual life.

We all have area’s that need realignment but refuse to take the necessary actions to cast off the filth and put on the clean garments that Christ offers. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins and what must be done to eradicate them from our lives.

And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. John 16:8 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

But, ultimately the choice is ours on whether we will take the initiative and commitment to purge ourselves of them. We refuse to do so and then cry to Jehovah to free us from the consequences of our sin.

FOLLOW JESUS

“Understanding is knowing what to do; wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is actually doing it.” — Tristan Gulberd

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (Jeremiah 23:6) The LORD Our Righteousness sending The Holy Spirit to convict me when I stray and to guide me back upon the path of righteousness when I repent. He is truly the best Guidance Councilor that is constantly leading us Heaven bound. I praise You in the name of He who guided 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

I am a Son of God.

a duet of adoring babes

 “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” 1 John 3:1.The Holy Bible, The New International Version

Did I get you?

Do you think I said “I am THE son of God?

No I am not THE son of God, but rather A son of God.

When I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and agree to live according to Gods divine rules for membership in this Holy Family (Gods Law) I became a full fledged member of a divine family.

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

When you are willing to do this, you are granted entrance into the best family. A loving Father who will always take care of you. A fantastic big brother who gave His all for you and the best Guidance Councillor, The Holy Spirit. When you join this family you are never alone, you are always loved.

What more could you ask for?

So here is the secret entrance key: “Jesus, I know I am a sinner and have messed up. I need Your love and guidance in my life. I know You died for me because You believe I am so special. Thank you. I accept You as my king, as my savior and as my best friend. I ask You to come into my life and teach me to be a good child of God. In Your loving name I pray. Amen.”

Did you do it?

Good for you.

Congratulations, now you are a royal member of the most special family. Now if you want a deeper relationship with the big three, and who doesn’t (The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) may I suggest you listen to radio stations like Praise 1065,Joyfm, go to crosswalk.com and once you join for free, click on audio and listen to the music. Go to Oneplace.com, listen to the wonderful sermons there (I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer ), subscribe to newsletters like Our Daily Bread, Daily for a few. Why not go to Praize and join a pen pal club?

When you listen to and read these every day and incorporate them into your life, your life will change for the better.

No I don’t promise it, Jesus does and He NEVER breaks His promises.

When you become a Christian, you become royalty. This means you also have royal duties unto the King of Kings. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our loving Father in Heaven) for blessing me with adopting me into Your loving royal family. Thank you Jesus for Your supreme sacrifice that made it all possible. May I be blessed with opportunities to bring more into this most amazing family. I exalt You both and sincerely request this in the name of my big brother with whom I adore 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

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.
