Flows From It.

 Above all else, guard your heart,  for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 Holy Bible, New International Version                                                                

 Your input determines your output.                                                   

In other words what you put into your mind determines how you behave. This affects your relationships, your mental and physical health.

The best input comes from the Bible and holy communion with Jehovah. They guard your heart and mind on righteousness while not imputing greed, hatred nor revenge which pollutes the heart and mind.

That is why it is important to have a thank you prayer every morning. It begins your day with a joyful disposition. The more grateful we are to Jehovah for all His blessings through out the day the less we are likely to become Negative Nellies.

It is also important to listen to Christian music instead of worldly music. Christian music points to a loving , grateful relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit while the worlds music is all about greed, lust and revenge. The first one helps in living a joyful, peace filled life, the second one leads to unfulfillment, anger and depression.

The same holds true for movies and TV series. What goes in must come out. With Christ it is the sweetness of love, joy, peace and Divine purpose. With the world it is the stench of filthy soul destroying selfishness.

Choose wisely if you want a good day, good life and a great eternal retirement home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with a smorgasbord of Heavenly delights to feast upon every day. I need these to continue to grow more mature into the Heavenly child You know I am capable of being. I thank you in the name of He whose companionship is the sweetest of delights Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Struggling With the Fact.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

 And the babbling fool [who is arrogant and thinks himself wise] will come to ruin. Proverbs 10:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many braggarts brought low and shame hangs upon their neck like a heavy brick. Those who once looked down on those they thought were beneath them quickly and with no warning become one of them. Fortunately I have nothing to do with social media because it does not seems too social to me. It is more like a platform for shallow folks to puff up themselves to the rest of the world. It seems pitiful to me. In reality they are very shallow, fragile folks. Criticize them and then see how mature they are then. If you really want to hurt them, just ignore them.

“Narcissistic people are always struggling with the fact that the rest of the world doesn’t revolve around them.” ~Unknown

On the other hand, there are those like myself that does not care what he says, she says or they say. I care about what Christ says about me. That does not make me arrogant but rather constantly listening to and obeying the Holy Spirits guidance to persistently improve myself.

The humble will see Heaven, the proud will see Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my heart a desire and means to worship He who is the only one worthy of being worshipped, You. May I never worship anything or anyone (including myself) other than You because they are all inferior to You. I thank you in the name of my idol Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

It is Not the Gospel You Believe

Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is. His good pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many that believe they can do what they want and it is okay. No matter how much scripture you share with them that their ways are wrong they refuse to listen.

The worst offenders of course are the fools that believe that once they accept Christ as their savior they can do what ever they like and they are still saved.

The next biggest group of fools are those that believe because Jesus is love everyone will be given a free pass to Heaven no matter how they lived their lives here on earth.

Boy are they in for a shock on judgement day.

“If you believe what you like in the gospel, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for teaching me the truth that is in the Bible.

Thank you for blessing me with helping me incorporate that in my life when it is difficult to do so, so that I may continue to mature in our Heavenly loving relationship.

I praise You in the name of He who lives the most righteous life of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Their Filthy Wickedness.

 When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Are you the one who is bringing disaster on Israel?” 1 Kings 18:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The nation of Israel was being punished for their wicked rebellion against Jehovah. When one of His prophets told the folks of their Divine punishment for their filthy wickedness and then when it occurred everyone blamed Elijah instead of being mature enough to admit their sins and too arrogant to repent of them.

In case you think that was just something that was done in the olden times you are sorely mistaken. Many times I have been accused of asking Jehovah to physically condemn those that are willingly walking in wickedness as if He will do my every bidding. When I try to explain to them that they have caused this upon their own heads, they steadfastly refuse to even acknowledge their sin much less take responsibility for it.

It is easier or the wicked to accuse the righteous for their downfall than to be mature enough, humble enough and sorrowful enough to admit their filth. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) that true justice is done at Your Divine hands upon the wicked and for blessing me with the wisdom not to take it to heart when the wicked blame me for punishment when it comes. I exalt You in the name of the ultimate Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

In the Day of Adversity.

DIVINE STRENGTH

If you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small. Proverbs 24:10 New King James Version

 

No matter how long we have walked with Christ there always comes a time when we faint in the day of adversity.

 

The difference is that when we first begin our walk we are weak and need lots of Christ’s strength.

 

As we mature he rightly expects us to be stronger and be able to stand more adversity.

Do not be arrogant and foolishly believe that you are incapable of falling because that is when you are your weakest.

 

It is in our adversity that we learn so much. Joseph- Anthony: Green

It is in our adversity were we learn of areas in our life that needs to be worked upon with the Holy Spirit’s guidance and strength.

It is never easy but always worth it as in the process we are able to help those coming up behind us and we grow closer to Christ.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God amongst us ) for blessing me with always being there to guide me, mold me and purify me to be the child You have intended me to be. Thank you for strengthening me in my time of weakness and for picking me up when I fall. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened His disciples after they grew faint and ran away from Him in His time of adversity Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                                

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

Why They Do Not Understand

Image

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14 New King James Version

When I was a tree planter we were living in tens in recently harvested forests about one hundred miles from the nearest town. The work is extremely difficult and the lifestyle is diametrically opposite of city social life. We had to work as a team, and become mature mentally. The camp became like a family.                                                                            

There was a two week break between the spring planting season and the summer.          

Many rookies could not wait to get back to their friends and family in the city.                

I would try to explain it to them that over a six week period they have changed. When they go home they will have nothing in common with their friends. When they try to explain to friends and family the work and lifestyle they will not understand. They will not understand because they have not lived the experience.                                          

When they went home it happened exactly as I explained and they could not wait to get back to the camp.                                                                                                                      

So too it is with Christians when they try to explain to non-Christians family and friends and co-workers why they have changes since becoming a Christian. They do not understand because they have not experienced Christ and it will seem like foolishness to them.                                                                                                                                    

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with speaking to my heart and bringing me into Your holy family. Please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to explain to those who I know who are not a member of Your holy family he sweetness of Your divine love. If they refuse to listen please heal the hurt that it causes in my heart and give me the strength to endure their ridicule and mistreatment. I humbly ask this in the name of He who was rejected and ridiculed by His earthly family when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                     

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