I Never Blame Anyone in My Life.

I never blame anyone in my life. Good people bless me with happiness. Bad people bless me with experience. Worst people bless me with a lesson. And best people bless me with memories.

F-E-A-R has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The one will enslave you while the other matures you. The choice is yours.

There are always people in my life who treat me wrong. I am grateful to them because they drive me into Jesus’ loving arms and we grow ever closer because of the abusers.

Our most painful experiences blesses us with the most important lessons in life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Failure is my teacher, not my accuser. I have matured more and learned more in failures than in successes. That is why I am grateful for my failures. Many times failure is a detour, not a dead-end street.

The problem with pity parties is very few people come, and those who do don’t bring presents. It is time to put on the big girl or big boy panties and grow up.

The more I am grateful for what I have, the more I will have to be grateful for.

When I am sincere, praise is effective. When I am insincere, it is manipulative.

The most important persuasion tool I have in my entire arsenal is The Holy Spirit’s guidance and my obedience. Unless I have a heart that is willing and obedient unto The Holy Spirit, I will never realize the maximum potential that lies within me.

The greatest of all mistakes is to not trust and obey The Holy Spirit because I think I can only do a little. He knows my capability better than I do.

I remember that failure is an event, not a person.

Everybody says they want to be free. There is no freedom. You are either a slave to a devil or an obedient child of Jehovah. One curses with constant misery while the other blesses with Divine love. The Holy Spirit is the most influential person I will talk to all day.

People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing. That is why it is recommended I go to the best motivator every day. His name is Jesus.

The foundation stones for a successful, meaningful life is prayer, Bible reading, having good Christian mentors and obedience unto The Holy Spirits guidance.

May the Holy Spirit guide you to a successful, meaningful life all the way to Heavens Gate. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu

I will be careful to live a blameless life— when will you come to help me? I will lead a life of integrity in my own home. Psalms 101:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

Integrity: adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

To me home represents the heart.

Every day I pray for the Holy Spirit to help me speak and behave like my idol Jesus Christ in all I say and in all I do.

Society says that righteousness is like shifting sand. It is open to interpretation. What is right for you may not be right for me but I will respect your right to live like that. What an idiotic way to have a disfunctioning society, which is what we see today.

A Christian says they will stand upon the principals that Jehovah teaches us through His Word, the Bible. He brings this enlightenment to us through the mentoring of the Holy Spirit.

Now of course satan and by extension society, will try anything to destroy that with temptations of lust, political correctness, which is satanic, and suffering because we will not surrender our Godliness morals.

We of course have an undefeatable super weapon to help us live a victorious Godly life. His name is the Holy Spirit and He is just a call away when we request our Heavenly Poppa sent Him to help us.

But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. 1 Corinthians 2:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

“He said not: “Thou shalt not be tempted: Thou shalt not be travailed:|Thou shalt not be afflicted.”But he said:”Thou shalt not be overcome.”” Julian of Norwich

God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness I Corinthians 1:30 ) for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to mentor me to live a righteous life and the strength and perseverance to do so every day. I praise You in the name of the most Righteous of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plenty of learning opportunities at the feet of the best mentor, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL

Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world. 1 John 4:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

How in the deep blue ocean are we going to test a spirit? They are so much smarter than we are.

Here is the two step method. First know your Bible and test them to see if they understand what was written. Ask Jehovah to bless you with a discerning heart so that you know only understand the Bible but what it meant in the culture it was written in, the context of what was being said. Go to Biblegateway.com and study the Bible there. I like using the New Living Translation, the Amplified Bible and the New Life Version. They are written in a way in which is historically and culturally correct. They are easy and simple to understand. Have Crosswalk and Biblestudytools. Com and ibelieve.com (yes fellas this one is a womans devotional but has fantastic articles for everyone not just for women) and of course the good ol Our Daily bread (odb.org) sent to your email and study their articles. Pray to the Lord to send the Holy Spirit to come sit beside you as you read them and explain what is written and how to incorporate that into your life.

The Holy Spirit is the best mentor of all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The second method is to watch them before you listen to them. See if they walk the walk before you listen to them talk the talk. Again pray for the Holy Spirit to bless you with discernment.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for blessing me with the resources and discernment to reveal the wolves that prowl amongst Your flock. When this happens please bless me that those who are being scammed open their minds and hearts to my important warning to them. I thank You and humbly ask this of You to He who revealed the wolves amongst the folks in His time on earth, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi

Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. Joshua 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Today, we know the Book of Instruction as the Bible. The Bible is the answer book to all of lifes questions.

It guides you in your relationships. It guides you in your mental, physical and spiritual health. It guides you in your finances.

It guides you in your career.

Ultimately of course, it guides you to Heavens Gate.

Now of course we require a teacher to explain what the lesson of the Bible are and how to incorporate then into our lives. And of course we know that the best Teacher is the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is the answer man to all of lifes questions. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It took me decades to realize this, accept it and incorporate this into every aspect of my life and my life is so much better now because of it. May you not be as slow a learner as I was.

The beautiful thing about the Bible is that you never stop learning from it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (the Holy Spirit our teacher John 14:26 ) for blessing me with You skilful mentoring. It has truly been life changing for the better. Thank you that You never walked away from me when I was a stubborn, difficult student but kept gently, firmly teaching me the Holy precepts of Jehovah. Thank you that You will continue to teach me all the way to Heavens Gate. It is with great admiration I thank you in the name of the greatest Teacher, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

Talk About Arrogant.

 Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive.  And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’  Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there.  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).”’ Luke 12:16-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Talk about arrogant.

This guy takes full credit while giving Jehovah none.

Did the rich man make the land fertile and productive or did Jehovah?

Than should the rich man not have given thanks unto Jehovah and share with the less fortunate as Jehovah shared with him?

Who determines when we die, the rich man or Jehovah?

Than should he not have used his time wisely to store up treasures in Heaven rather that sit on his laurels?

Should he not have given unto his community as Jehovah greatly gave unto him?

Did the rich man celebrate his good fortune with others or did he greedily keep his parties for himself?

Should we not share with others our good fortune as Jehovah as blessed us with them?

How about you?

Do you share in your blessings ,both great and small, with others or do you greedily keep them for yourself?

Do you publicly praise Jehovah for His graciousness towards you or do you brag about it as if it was you who did the accomplishment?

Do you waste your retirement years going on cruises or other luxuries or do you take this opportunity to share your time and wisdom with the younger generation?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with all of the abundant mental, physical and spiritual gifts provided for me on a daily basis.

May these be used as an opportunity to give thanks to You both privately and publicly and to be used to help those in Your family that are in need.

I joyfully give all praise unto You and request this blessing in the name of He who always used His Divine gifts for the benefit of others Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Is Normal to Christians

holy-spirit

 Some Christians believe that miracles do not occur today through Christians.

I disagree and here is why: Jesus Himself promised that we could and would do miracles when we have strong faith. I do not see where he specifically says it will end with the disciples. Indeed does the Bible not state that old men would have dreams as a sign of the end of times? Matthew 10:1, Mark 16:16-18, 2 John 14:12 The purpose of the miracles is to confirm the pastors calling. Exodus 4:3-9, 30:7:10, 12 Numbers 16:28-35 I Samuel 12:17, 18 I Kings 17:24 Mark 9:39; 16:17-18 John 3:2:6:14, 36; 11:42 Acts 2:22 2 Corinthians 12:12

I had one experience in Asia where I was witnessing to a woman. She kept on laughing and questioning what made me so sure there was a God and that he had arranged for us to meet and share a Bible study. One day she informed me she had a friend whose husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I informed her I would pray for him. After the third day the doctors examined him only to discover that there was no cancer even though he was not taking any medication. She was ecstatic when she emailed me so that is why I know it is true.

That the message is from God Exodus 4:3-9, 30; 7:10, 12 Judges 6:11-21 I Kings 17:24; 18:37-39 2 Kings 20:8-11 Matthew 11:2-5 Mark 16:2 John 5:36 Acts 2:22; 8:6
Hebrews 2:3-4

That the miracles increase faith. John 2:11, 23; 5:53:7:31; 11:45;20:30-31 Numbers 14:11 Acts 9:42

There was an Asian man who I was witnessing to that was a new believer. One day he shared with me that being middle aged he was afraid of losing his job because the company he was working for was going bankrupt and he would be unable to get another job. After three days of my praying a company called him to offer him a job where he did not have to travel (he was a salesman who was always travelling about the country),had good benefits and more wages. Considering there are millions of younger unemployed men and women in his field with the latest skills and he was nearing retirement age wouldnt you consider that a miracle?

No matter who is the vessel God uses to bring about a miracle or healing,it is God Who is to get the glory for it.

Chronicles 7:3 Matthew _:8; 15:31 Mark 2:12 Luke 5:25-26; 7:15-16:13 13; 17:15-16; 18:43 Acts 4:21; 14:11-15 John 2:11; 11:4

This is a hard one for me. I have had people repeatedly praise me for the wonderful things that occur to them when associating with me. I always inform them to give praise to Jehovah, not to me. I feel very uncomfortable with it.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me to be alert to those with whom You have given signs and wonders to to point us to You. Please bless me to humbly and wisely use these awesome tools You have given me the responsibility to use to point others to You. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who used them in a wise manner Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I See it too Often.

bouquet-of-flowers-growing-on-tree-on-a-bright-sunny-day

 

“We take care of our possessions for our children. But of the children themselves we take no care at all. What an absurdity is this! Form the soul of thy son aright, and the rest will be added hereafter.” John Chrysostom

Far too often I see parents and especially grandparents spoiling their children and grandchildren with giving them everything they want. This is ham stinging them for adulthood.

Then when they become adults they are self centered, arrogant, rude and selfish and the parents and grand parents cry baby about their attitude and behavior.

I have seen it far too often.

Do not be concerned about the physical inheritance you are leaving your children but rather the moral and spiritual one which is far more important. Joseph- Anthony: Green

If you want success you have to work for it.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 Holy Bible, New International Version

Meanwhile they spend so little time with their children doing family things like sharing chores around the house (which teaches them responsibility), sitting down and just talking with them (and yes, listening to them), having picnics with them, going for walks with them where they can bond. They lecture their children while turning around and doing the very things they lecture their children not to do.

Every parents motto is not to be ”do as I say” but rather “watch me”.Joseph- Anthony: Green What type of inheritance are you leaving?

“Train your child in the way in which you know you should have gone yourself.” Charles H. Spurgeon Prayer:

Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for being the most loving Father whose guidance and discipline has moulded me into being appreciative and respectful toward You and to cherish this gracious gift. Please bless all parents and grand parents to emulate Your wise method of being a righteous parent. I give thank and pray for these blessings in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Breakdown of Society.

descrection

 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 Holy Bible, New King James Version

I believe that when you break down the family, you break down society. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now that does not mean you are to remain in an abusive relationship.

“Train your child in the way in which you know you should have gone yourself.” Charles H. Spurgeon

How many times have we reflected on our past and wish we could change it?

When you are a parent you can pass these mistakes as well as your triumphs onto your children to help guide them through life.

“The tasks connected with the home are the fundamental tasks of humanity.” Theodore Roosevelt

For those of us that are old enough to remember do you remember those that in my opinion are destroyer of the family the  (womens lib) spewing on how they were on a biological clock and wanted to get pregnant ? Because they relegated men to the trash can they wanted to get pregnant by artificial insemination because they said they did not need a father in the family. Look at the results. Could it be boys raised by feminists are confused as how to be a man because there were none in their family life? Could that be why so many males today are so feminine?

In many Asian countries the mother raises the children and could that by why there is so much homosexuality there and the men are so feminine there?

“There is only one way to bring up a child in the way he should go and that is to travel that way yourself.” Abraham Lincoln

We need to walk with our children through life not shove them off to babysitters like sports teams or other extra curricular activities. We need to spend time with them not just having fun but teaching them life lessons. Other wise, when they leave the nest they will be completely unprepared for the world out there.

The most important duty of every parent and grandparent is to teach them about Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To help them become adopted members of a Holy Family.

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless those who were raised fatherless to be introduced unto You so that will be blessed to know what a father is. This blessing they will in turn teach their children and may it restore Godly families to our society which so desperately needs it. I humbly request this in the name of my adored bib brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Chased Me Out.

 

 

HONESTY

 And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge. Exodus 31:3 New King James Version

They began doing construction work in the apartment above where I live in with jackhammers and sledge hammers going all day. This of course means it is impossible to do any writing. I researched on the internet where there is a library nearby. The one found is modern and quiet (for China, these are the noisiest people I have ever met) and there outlets to plug in your computer to work in an air conditioned building. Considering that it gets to a hundred and ten in the apartment with no air conditioning during most of the year this was a blessing

On the first day there while taking a break I felt the Lord moving me to go for a walk on the library grounds. During this walk I was led to a walkway from the library to close to the apartment. This was a blessing because it meant that I did not have to suffer the cattle car experience of the subway every morning nor have to spend money on subway fare. As well, as it takes about an hour to walk there from the apartment it is good exercise and being outside.

When Chinese see a foreigner they always want to trick them into giving them free English lessons. While meditating on this problem the Lord reminded me of a sermon I heard some time in the past. It was how the early Christians were known as the people of The Way. The Way of course being that Jesus is the way.

So if the Chinese try their conniving, I merely instruct them that I am a teacher of The Way” and ask them if they are interested in learning about Christ. If they say no then I ask them why they are bothering me (You have to be blunt otherwise they will not leave you alone until they get what they want). If they say they are (many Chinese will lie and pretend to be interested just to get free English lessons) then they will pay for the class before the class begins (Chinese will say that they will pay and then at the end of the class not pay. I have ten years experience with these creatures and have learned my lessons the hard way. ) to prove their sincerity and yes it does say in the Bible that teachers are to be paid.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with a heart, mind and body that is always totally obedient to You in every aspect of my life. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us by example what true obedience is Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Editors note- this was written in my final days of living in China.
