Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper it only leads to harm. Psalm 37:7-8 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation
I have gone through it numerous times through out my life.
There have been folks that are shifty, swindlers that are getting away with cheating others, including myself, out of money. They arrogantly laugh and brag about it.
In tears of frustration and anger on my knees I called out to the Lord for vengeance and justice.
Yet, nothing was done to punish the perpetrator.
Then, some where down the line, BANG, it hits them. It is total devastation in their lives.
They lose their wealth, they lose their home, they lose their marriage and family and, they lose their health. It is terrifying how total and complete the justice of Jehovah is when He strikes.
Now, when someone is abusing me, I just have faith in the Lord that He will help me get through the unpleasant experience and that Divine justice will be done.
So, when someone is abusing you or those you love and care about, do not get angry and try to get revenge. Leave it in the Lords strong, wise hands.
Justice, true justice, will triumph over evil every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Nekamoth (Psalms 18:47 GOD that Avengeth ) that justice, true justice will always be given out by Your strong hands of true justice. I exalt You in the name of the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen

For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.” Matthew 19:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I am in my early sixties as I write this and have never been married. Oh sure there are many times when I see couples or families my heart aches to enjoy such a blessing in my life as well.
That however, is not the path the Lord has chosen for me.
There is no way I could have served the Lord in the manner I have if there was a wife or family in my life. I have faith in our Jesus that He will reward me with unlimited love in His family when it is to our heavenly home He takes me.
So if you are single, do not allow family or society to push you in a direction contrary to God. It will only lead to misery.
Where I live now, when people get a certain age their relatives (mostly their mothers and grandmothers) constantly harass and nag them: “When are you going to get married, when are you going to get married?” When they get married then the nagging continues: “When are you going to give me a grandson, when are you going to give me a grandson?” (Not a grandchild, but a grandson. This is to support them in their old age and to carry on the family name. What a pity so many young people get married just to shut the nagging mothers and grandmothers up. They are not happy, indeed, most are terribly miserable.

Most married folks drift farther apart in their marriage the longer they are married until they are two strangers living in the same house. Joseph a son of Jehovah
I have seen this come true in almost every married elder couple I have met. Indeed, many times I wonder why they even got married in the first place (most times it was because the lust of the body was stronger than the willingness to obey Jehovahs choice. It ended up with a lot of shot gun marriages. Yes, even with your grandparents).
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) for the privilege of being a eunuch in order to better serve You. I know You shall reward me in Heaven. In the name of my adoring big brother Jesus Christ I give thanks for this blessing. Amen

Today our world is plagued by rage and depression. It oozes into every cranny of society, rich and poor, man and woman, of every colour and nationality.
Everyone is asking why.
It can all be summed up in one word: unforgiveness.
When we refuse to forgive someone for an offense they have committed upon us it seeps into every aspect of our life. That is why there is so much road rage, why there is so much drug abuse, why there is so much failed marriage, why there is so much in fighting in families.
Why do folks refuse to forgive?
Because, we are greedy.
Instead of leaving justice in Jehovahs capable hands we demand the right for blood by our own.
Unforgiveness is a form of selfishness. We demand our pound of flesh.Joseph a son of Jehovah
The cure for this selfishness can only be found by laying our grievances at the feet of Jesus and trusting Him to deliver true justice in His time and in His way.
Speaking from personal experience, Christs justice is far more terrible than anything we could administer to the unrepentant.
The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation
In the mean time, we are to pray for the offended to come to repentance for their own good.
If possible stay away from abusive folks and if you have to deal with them do so graciously but firmly. Let them know their attitude and behavior is not welcome nor tolerated. Therefore, the relationship shall remain formal, but, if they repent the door of friendship shall be opened
Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohe Tishuathi (Psalms 18:46&51:14) – GOD of My Salvation bless me to always have a forgiving heart towards others as You do towards me. Please bless me with the wisdom, strength and provision to walk away from habitual abusers and to pray for them to come unto repentance as well. I humbly request this in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible 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
Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long. Psalms 25: 4-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version
All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. Psalms 25:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version
What is the path
There are numerous places in the Bible about following Jehovahs path.
What is it?
Where is it?
The path of Jehovah is that we are to emulate Him. As He has loving kindness towards us, we are to have towards others. We are to be kind and considerate towards others for no others reason than we care about them as Jehovah cares about us (that does not mean we are to allow them to abuse this kindness.).
As He is good towards us, we are to be good to others. As Jehovah is good to us, let us be good to others.
As He speaks the truth to us so to is our conversation to be honest with others. We are not to lie, manipulate or con others. That is disgusting filth in Jehovahs eyes. So is gossiping and saying mean, cruel hateful words.
As He is faithful with us so to are we to be faithful with others. We are to be faithful with our families. We are to care for elderly parents and help them as much as we can (if they have been abusive when we were young we can lovingly confront them about it in hopes of reconciliation. If they refuse, still be loving towards them with the hopes of future reconciliation until Jehovah directs us that that is enough and to walk always from them, which He does). We are to be faithful to our wives and husbands (the Godly marriage of one man, one woman, not the satanic filth of homosexuality) . We are to be faithful towards our employee’s and our employers.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (Jehovah our Heavenly Father) bless me to emulate my big brother Jesus in all of my thoughts, words and actions so that they will bring You glory, honour and the little lost sheep. I am grateful that through the course of this we are drawn closer and closer into a Divine love affair that will last an eternity. I sincerely request this and thank you for this privilege in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
And you will desire to control your husband Genesis 3:16 New Living Testament
This is where the battle began.
The battle between men and women.
And, if you doubt it is a battle, just ask any seasoned cop the worst fights they have to break up.
I have met few husbands that are not hen picked by their wives. I find most women conniving, deceiving, manipulating and when they cannot get their own way spiteful little bitches from Hell. This is especially true in todays society. As well, it was extremely prevalent in tree planting. That is why the majority of men vets in camp would have nothing to do with the females in camp.
That is why I praise the Lord every day that He guided me to never get married.
I have seen it in every society I have lived in (and I have lived in numerous places all over the world and I have lived with folks from countless different societies. This rings true in all of them).
If you desire a loving relationship (between a man and woman as Jehovah has said is normal, everything else is perverted) than you must have a Christian one. Read Pauls instructions for a marriage. The man is to respect the woman and vise versa. Please read Ephesians 5:22- 33 in the Amplified Bible (you can find that on line on Biblegateway.com).
You are mine, I am yours is the mantra for a successful normal marriage (between a man and a woman). Anything else is doomed to fail. Joseph a son of Jehovah
I have seen this in many elderly marriages and they are still like two teenagers with their first bad case of puppy love. I admire and respect them. And, if you are having problems in your marriage, they should be the go to to solve the problem.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) instruct men and women how to conduct themselves in a loving respectful manner towards each other in matrimony so as to be a shining example to those in the dark world out there. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the husband of Your church Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“Be dressed and ready for active service.” Luke 12:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
In the Christian life we are on a journey. Yes it is nice to think about what Heaven will be like but we need to stayed focused on where we are in the present and where Jehovah is leading us on our journey towards Heavens Gate.
We are useless to Christ if we spend our Christian life day dreaming about Heaven instead of concentrating on being Christs servant on the journey there. Joseph a servant of Christ.
On this journey many times we do not have a road map of where Christ is sending us our what our service entails. It may be a journey of being a godly husband or wife, a godly parent. It may be on a journey of your vocation as say a nurse or a waitress at a quaint restaurant.
During the course of this journey there will be many dangers, pitfalls, loneliness, and exhaustion. It is at these times we shall draw ever closer unto our Heavenly Beloved and He shall draw the closest to us. In His loving grace we shall experience His amazing love, wisdom, comfort, encouragement and power. This shall instill in us a wonder and awe of His majesty. The result of this is an ever deeper desire to trust Him on our journey to Heavens gate and desire to be a loyal bond servant ( a bond servant is one who serves out of free will) unto Him.
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” — Ursula LeGuin
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with walking with me throughout this adventure called life. It is in following You that we have traveled amazing paths and accomplished incredible feats together. I praise You in the name of He who is the light that I follow of the trail of life 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
This is something we need to inform them of in the liberal society that is trying to suppress our rights as Christians.
Yes, I am a Christian that believes the Bible is the ultimate truth. As such I do not support the homosexuallifestyle nor marriages.
No, I am not judging you nor condemning you. Nor am I bullying you.
But just as I respect your choice I expect you to have the same courtesy, maturity and respect towards mine. I have the right to speak publiclyjust as muchas you do. THAT, is True equal rights as well as mine under International Law.universal-declaration-human-rights

Indeed, this is something we need to inform our politicians of as well as our judges.
Prayer: Please Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) bless me with Divine wisdom to gracefully but firmly stand up for my rights when persecuted by the wicked ones so prevalent in today’s society that constantly attempt to shout down to drown out the truth and suppress others rights to accommodate their own filthy wicked lifestyle. I humbly request this in the name of He who always stood for what is right Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day.
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 Holy Bible, New International Version
They are three of the hardest words for us to say :”I am sorry.”
How many marriages and friendships have been destroyed because the offender refused to apologize?
You know why they refuse to apologize?
When on the other hand you apologize, many times, you end up feeling better than the person who was offended.
They are hard but necessary steps you must take.
If on the other hand you are proud and arrogant and refuse to apologize what right do you have to expect God to forgive you or to give you any blessings?
If you refuse to forgive others why do you expect Jehovah to forgive you? Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me a humble heart that is sincerely willing to repent to any and all who I offend, including You. I implore You in the name of He who taught true repentance best Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.Matthew 10:38-39 New King James Version
How many for eons have folks wondered the meaning of life?
They foolishly waste their time amassing material wealth.
Those with the most toys when they die are not the happiest nor the riches, they are the saddest and poorest in spirit., Joseph- Anthony: Green
Chasing after satanic religions like buddihism or new agers still leaves them with a empty feeling and purpose.
There is only one way to enlightenment and that is through the Holy Spirit. All else is satan disguised as light as he leads you down to an eternal Hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Some try to maintain a super fit body all of their lives, sorry but you will be in for quite the shock on your death bed when you realize it was all for naught. We all die and then go to our eternal rewards’. That is not to say we should not take proper care of our bodies, just do not worship them.
Some find it in raising a family. Oh the deep sadness when their children grow up and they are left with an empty nest and an empty heart, especially if they distance themselves from you which is all too common today. There is nothing wrong with enjoying having a Christian family but those who worship their children and grand children are raising selfish, self centered child which grow into selfish, self centered adults. The only time they call mommy or daddy or grandma or grandpa is when they want money. They do not appreciate it and give nothing in return. They never call, come to visit or help. They are waiting for them to die so they can get their inheritance and spend it foolishly. I unfortunately see all too often as seniors live a daily hell of loneliness and deep sadness in isolation. This is a shame upon the children and a disgrace.
Others worship their careers. It is all for naught. They will lose it when their career is out dated, which happens all too common today. In many instances people are replaced by robots. How about when you retire, then what are you going to do with your life if it has been centered on your career?
But when we become free willing servant to Christ our King we will find the true meaning of their lives when Jehovah blesses us with revealing it to them. It will not be easy the following path Jehovah has chosen for you but well worth it in our daily lives and in our eternal ones.
Following Christ is not easy but the rewards are Heavenly. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi – Shepherd for being such a patient and wise Shepherd to this at times obstinate little , sheep. Please bless all who place their faith in You with guiding them to the lives You have purposed for them before they were even born. I exalt You and humble beseech You in the name of the greatest shepherd Jesus Christ. Amen.
May Jehovah bless you today and every day with His precious love, joy and peace.
