The Simple Easy Way to Riches

RICHES OF THE HEART

 How would you like to be rich and contented?

How would you like to have a fulfilling life?

How do you attain this you ask?

Begin with assessing your heart.

Are you so caught up in the “Keeping up with the Jones” you do not have time to enjoy what you have?

Is your pursuit of money and all its trapping enslaving you to the point where you neglect your service to God and spending quality time with your family.

Remember the Cat Stevens song “Cats in the cradle and the silver spoon”? The father was so busy he neglected his son. Then when he was old and retired his son didn’t have time to spend with his child. That’s when he realized his mistake and understood he should have spent time with his family. Try spending quality time with your wife (or husband every day), time with your children every day.

Get involved with community work. I loved my time volunteering at a local hospital and still cherish it even now, thirty years later.

Don’t forget “It is better to receive than to get.”

When you give of your time and effort you become rich in the heart. That is when God will shower you with His wonderful blessings.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14 New Living Bible

From David learn to give thanks for everything. Every furrow in the Book of Psalms is sown with the seeds of thanksgiving. Jeremy Taylor

“The blessing of the LORD, it makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it” (Prov. 10:22) New Living Translation.

Do you love to go shopping?

Do you have to have the latest clothing (even though after you buy it a lot of times it looks weird and you wouldn’t wear it for a Halloween costume)?

Do you have to have the latest toys to be happy?

You know, I remember before Christmas (which is “supposed” to be all about giving) being constantly bombarded by commercials on TV about how happy we would be if we had to have the latest toy. Of course on Christmas Day after gleefully playing with the toys for a while we became bored with them and they sat there gathering dust. Then what?

Remember in the seventies when everyone had to have a pet rock and you paid all that money to have one?

How much do you play with it today? (Yes kids, many of your parents were that stupid to buy a “pet rock”)

Do you have to go out and buy more to be happy?

What a never ending stupid circle of emptiness. You are a dead man walking. Sure your body is alive, but there is a huge emptiness in your heart, for all intense purposes your heart is dead. Welcome to the world of consumerism. Isn’t it fun?

1 Timothy 5:6: “She that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.” The American Standard Bible .

The most miserable people I have met are the ones that have all the toys. The most happy and contented ones are the ones that are rich in their hearts. Which one do you choose?

Be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. 1 Samuel 12:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.2 Corinthians 9:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

May my both my hands always be open. One hand to receive my Heavenly Beloveds blessings, the other to share them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Our gracious and loving God please fill my heart and mind with the most important treasure of all, knowing Your awesome love and having You in my life. As I am filled with Your glorious riches please help me become even more richer. Guide me on where and how to share Your Magnificent love with others. Teach me what to say and do to reveal Your incredible love for all. In the ones name who loved us so much He willingly dies for us Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Is Not Worthy of Me.

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

 And he who does not take his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me] is not worthy of Me. Matthew 10:38 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sounds pretty cut and dry does it not?

If you are not willing to suffer for Christ, you are not worthy of Him. How many churches or Bible study groups do you hear that preached?

Now that you have heard it are you willing to pick up your cross and when you are a Christian you can be sure you will be carrying many crosses. Although this sounds absurd it is actually a blessing for us. Because we carry the cross when it becomes too burdensome for us to carry Christ comes along side of us and helps carry it with us. That brings us into close fellowship with Him.

Suffering brings folks closer together  than good times do and who better to come closer to that Christ? Joseph a son of Jehovah

As well, when we conform to Christ’s life we live a simple uncomplicated life which bring peace of mind. Not to be constantly tormented by the material world where you never have enough or the politically correct world that changes its values quicker that the spring weather on the north west coast of Canada (the Queen Charlotte Islands).

Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me helping me carry the cross You have laid upon me to carry in my service and worship to You. No matter the agony and or the misery You are worth it. It is an honour to emulate the most beautiful best friend there could ever be and the most worthy Eternal King. I praise You in Your grandiose name. 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

The Worst Idol Is

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 “Little children, keep yourselves from idols!” 1 John 5:21 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The worst idol is the idol of self.

How much do you put your own self interests above the interest of Jehovah and or others?

Why are they covetous?

Because self is gratified by its increasing stores in fleeting material things. To me it is astounding the extreme gluttony of many in the world today. Indeed there are many that have such excess of material wealth they have to rent storage lockers to store their material possessions in because there is no more space in their house. Many do not even know what they have anymore.

What is vanity—but the indulgence of self love? It is obnoxious to me to see all these vain souls plastering picture of themselves all over social media to satisfy their vanity. It is humorous to see folks walk around with tattoo’s plastered all over their bodies so they look like freaks in a side show just to bring attention to themselves to satisfy their vanity.

When you foolishly believe you are better than anyone else, compare yourself to Jesus and then see how good you are. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What is ambition but the exultation of self?

It is abhorrent to me to listen to these vain creatures who cannot open their mouths without bragging about their accomplishments no matter how big or small. They are very obnoxious and annoying. These are the most shallow and insecure creatures I have ever met.

Unfortunately todays world is over run with them, so much so that this disgusting behavior is considered normal in their perverted minds.

Are you ambitious for Christs glory or your own?

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit guide my words and actions to always being honour and glory to my Beloved Jeesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever). I humbly request this in His majestic name. Amen

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

The Secret to Contentment Is

                                               

But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The only way to obtain contentment within us is to be blessed with the Holy Spirit’s indwelling in our heart.

Your dream job quickly becomes boring after a few months.

After the honeymoon is over there is still love but not constant contentment.

How much contentment is there in exercise? Oh your body may be in shape but how is your spirit? How much contentment is there in materialism? Very little from what I see.

Most times there is constant contentment in my heart (we all go through rough times in our lives where there is little contentment but when we pray Jehovah blesses us with contentment, peace and love).

Instead of constantly looking to change your circumstances why not find contentment in the unchanging love of the Holy Spirit?

He is always there and there is nothing to compare to His loving contentment He blesses us with.

“The secret to contentment is Christ in me, not a different set of circumstances.” Elisabeth Elliot

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace and contentment in Your daily provisions for me. These are priceless treasures that I daily cherish and thank you for. I sing praises unto Thy abundantly gracious name in the name of He who I am content to be with more than any and all others 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

Christ Says

                                       

Let each one give [thoughtfully and with purpose] just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver [and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift].2 Corinthians 9:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see so many that have houses yet rent lockers to shove their stuff in. Yet they are not satisfied in life.

I have seen many who walk all over everyone to get one inch ahead of the other fellow, yet there is no satisfaction in their live.

I see those who freely and generously give of their time, money and heart to the community. They are the most wealthy folks I have ever met.

If given the choice between the material or the spiritual riches, choose the spiritual. It has more satisfaction and lasts and eternity.

“The world says, The more you take, the more you have. Christ says, the more you give, the more you are.” Frederick Buechner

Prayer: Thank you Jeovah El Roi ( “God Who Sees”) for blessing me with bountiful opportunities to become wealthy beyond my wildest dreams. It is the most significant treasure of all and that is love for it is the truest treasure of all. Thank you that You see this adoring child of Yours spread this treasure lavishly upon others and in so doing give glory unto You who deserve it the most. In so doing it enriches both my body and spirit. Oh I give all glory unto You my Love. I exalt Thee in the name of the most loving treasure of all Jesus Christ. Amen May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

War Against the Soul.

SINFUL DESIRE

Abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. 1 Peter 2:11 New King James Version

                                                                                                    

If you are older like me you have witnessed the spiraling descension of our western society into a cesspool. In our  music, TV shows and movies morality has taken back seat to the shock effect to addict people to the filth. Look at many of todays singers when they were just starting out and portrayed as sweet and innocent. As that became passé they became more and more depraved to stay on top. 

                                                                        

Society thinks it is cool to emulate them.                                                          

Look at the movies and listen to popular songs. There is so much filth in it that laughingly is called entertainment.                                                            

It encourages premarital sex, why do they not have interviews with people who have contracted syphilis (we have a run for aids why not a run for syphilis which is much more common and much more deadly?) or had abortions and their lives ruined because of this lifestyle? 

                                                                         

Seeking after self instead of seeking to better society. Why do they not talk about how many suicides there are because of loneliness?               

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                        

Materialism which says buy this and you will be happy.                                 

Why do they not have interviews with folks that have had their lives and marriages destroyed by bankruptcy?                                                                     

Indeed is not every society in the world today facing eminent bankruptcy on a scale never witnessed before in history because of this empty “happiness”?                                                                                          

Is not every government in the world facing bankruptcy because their populace lives by the entitlement theory and to stay in power the politicians give the people what they want and not what they need?                                                                      

“We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves to be like other people.”  Arthur Schopenhauer   

                                                                                                         

On the other hand when you seek after Christ you are in the spiritual world. In this world you experience His love and divine joy which nothing of the flesh can even begin to compare with.      

                                  

I would not give up one moment of my Christian life for a lifetime of fleshly desires being fulfilled. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (god is love) for blessing me with the most treasured gift ever possible, Your divine love. I praise You in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.                                              

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

He is Out of His Mind.

HE GIVES PEACE

But when His family heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, “He is out of His mind.” Mark 3:21 New International Version

When your family and friends laugh at you, mock you and or consider you crazy for giving up all worldly desires to follow the path Christ has for you in life, just remember, Jesus’ family thought He was nuts too.

 

If you give up a successful career to go work in the slums or when you walk away from the booze, sex and drugs, when you walk away from the malls and walk toward Jesus of course those around you will not understand. What they do not and cannot understand they label as crazy because it does not fit their idea of normal.

I would rather be crazy for Jesus than be normal and in Hell.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

It will be painful to have to say goodbye to those close to you but Jesus will reward you with a solid loving, respectful relationship with Him and with those in His divine family.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing me of the wounds inflicted upon me whose words cut deep because of my choice to walk with You. Please forgive them for they do not know what they are doing. I meekly thank you and ask for this forgiveness in the name of He who forgave those who mocked Him as he suffered upon the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day .
