They go Together.

laugh at fools

 A rebellious and stubborn people, Who walk in the way that is not good, [following] after their own thoughts and intentions Isaiah 65:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Supidness and stubbornness go together like peanut butter and jam.

I know a woman that cannot eat greasy food, if she does she violently vomits after just one bite. One day we were at a take away and she ordered greasy chicken. I told her not to purchase it or she would become violently ill. She insisted that that would not happen this time. As soon as we settled in her van and she took one bite she swung the door open and puked her eyeballs out.

You see, she was stubborn.

She knew she was not to eat that junk yet insisted that this time she would not get sick (even though she did every time previous to that). That was very stupid because she paid a very dear price for her stubbornness.

How many times has Jehovah instilled in us not to do something yet we stubbornly and stupidly return to our wicked ways. When the disaster comes crashing down on us because we were stupid and stubborn and refuse to listen to Jehovah do we not blame Him?

How stupid is that?

Stupidness and stubbornness is also arrogant.

When I was a tree planter and would try to help the rookies who knew nothing of planting there were some who insisted on doing it their way. Even though, that meant they worked just as hard but made a penitence of money that the rookies did that were respectful and listened and obeyed as they were shown. The dumbo’s blame everyone and everything but themselves for their disastrous planting season.

How many times has Jehovah tried to show us a better way to live yet we give Him the finger and go out and live how we see fit. When disaster comes (and it always does) we blame everyone but ourselves.

The stupid and stubborn are self condemned to a life of misery and suffering. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:I thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with patience and a strong arm when I am a stupid, stubborn obstinate child of Yours. I know You only desire what is best for me and must use strong methods when I am a disobedient child of Yours. I praise You in the name of He who was strong with His disciples when necessary Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

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

We Must Prefer the Invisible Realities.

GOD GIVE A HOME

 So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable. 2 Corinthians 4:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We must prefer the invisible realities of eternity,to the visible things of time; and amid all that is . . . dazzling to sense, gratifying to appetite,and dear to passion.

By faith, spend a life of . . . self-denial, mortification of sin, and separation from the world.

Yes, the world says, buy my razzle and dazzle and you will by happy. But it is like a junkie. Once the high of your new toy has worn off, you need to go out and foolishly spend your money on something else to get you your high of happiness. In the end, you end up with nothing but misery as you become deeply in debt and your toys break down or become obsolete.

For those of us in Christ however, He reigns in our heart which is not visible to the outside world. He promises us a world we have never seen nor can imagine. We trust Him when He promises a home in Heaven just for us even though we cannot even imagine what it will be like. And, best of all, He promises the ultimate high, that of just being with Him to which nothing else can compare with.

I look forward to the ultimate high that you never come down from, that of spending an eternity in the ultimate love affair with Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with the purest ecstasy of joy in a loving relationship with You. I praise You in the name of He whose presence makes my heart dance a wonderful gig of joy 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.

Eternity Offers Only Two.

kigndom of heaven

I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse Deuteronomy 30:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is so confusing.

That is what I used to say about life. There are so many options and so many voices. Which one do I listen to? This one says this and that one says that (I find that particularly true in health care). It makes the head spin.

After accepting Christ as my Savior He slowly showed me that to do so also makes Him my King and me His free will servant. Many of the things He instructed me to do were difficult. But that was to teach me to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. Many things seemed crazy, that was to teach me to trust Him implicitly in my life. Through the course of these decades long lessons He was slowly teaching me the most important lesson of all though: That is to continuously grow deeper in a loving relationship with Him. The ultimate goal will be to share eternity with the one I love and worship the most.

In the world there is so much confusion because they listen to the flawed doctrines of others instead of listening to and obeying the pure wisdom that only comes from the Holy Spirit. This is the rough trial to Heaven, all others only lead to eternal misery in Hell.

“Life offers many choices. Eternity offers only two.”  Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with being a guiding light in my life in this dark confusing world. I exalt You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. AMEN

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Regret is Stronger than Gratitude.

be loving like jesus

Do not neglect to extend hospitality to strangers [especially among the family of believers—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously]Hebrews 13:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen more people come to a friend or family members funeral than to their house to visit them while they are alive. I hear them wail how much they will miss their relative or friend when in life they neglected them. It is so phony it is pathetic.

I make it a point to be respectful, polite and friendly with every one when possible (there are some unlovable folks in this world who will do nothing but abuse you and use you. They bring nothing but grief to the heart and misery to the life. Those ones are avoided like the plague). You never know if the next time you see them they will be in a casket.

Now that is not the reason to be respectful, polite and friendly with them, we do so as an extension of Christs love in our hearts. We have no regrets at any funeral though.

“Dead people receive more flowers than the living because regret is stronger than gratitude.” Anne Frank

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me that my voice may always echo Your voice of love, respect and encouragement to all that come my way this day and every day. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who always spoke in a loving tone when He walked among us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What They Gave to Him, They Give to You.

the-lord-is-my-strength

Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. John 15:20 New International Version

Two words that are oxy morons: Christian and non-suffering.

Many people today have the false belief that when they give their lives to Christ it will be a cake walk and a bed of roses.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

When you commit your live to Christ you can expect to be persecuted.

Many times the worst persecution will come from your family. They will see the change in you and not like it. They will fight you to walk away from Christ. Most times this will mean you must walk away from family. It will be painful.

The same goes for friends. They will be confused as to why you have changes and will viciously mock you because of the change in your life. It will not be pleasant.

You can expect to be treated like a geek at school and work. You can expect people to go out of their way to make your life miserable.

But take heart. We have a savior who has walked that path before you so will comfort you and encourage you.

For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5 New International Version

I know, I have been there. I have had to walk away from family and friends and it was very painful.

I have been in jobs where I felt like I was the only person in the world because no one would talk with me because I was not dishonest. When that happens in a bush camp it can be very lonely.

In my agony I cried out to Jehovah and He sent the Holy Spirit who comforted, strengthened and encouraged me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for comforting and encouraging me during my times of persecution for our relationship. I consider it an honor to suffer for Your awesome name. I give thanks in the name of He who suffered all the way to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Does Not Feel so Good.

THE FIRES OF HELL

Run away from sexual immorality [in any form, whether thought or behavior, whether visual or written]. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the one who is sexually immoral sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have read numerous times of epidemics of super strains of syphilis plaguing societies, especially Britain and the United State and the homosexual community in particular (I wonder: if homosexuality is normal, why is sexual diseases like aids, syphilis and gonorrhea so prevalent in that lifestyle?) . The reason is always the same: sexual promiscuity.

The worlds mantra of if it feels good do it leads to :”it does not feel so good now”. The consequences last a lifetime.

What amazes me now is that even though they know they are infected they use no protection during intercourse with others thus spreading the disease. That is so selfish and immoral.

To the world chastity is old fashioned.

My reply is that yes it is old fashioned. Jehovah is older than we can ever imagine but His words still ring true down through the ages.

The worlds “enlightenment” always leads to disaster but following Jehovahs way, even though it is difficult in this perverted world, always leads to what is best for us.

Really, the “new enlightenment” is nothing “new”. It goes all the way back to Adam and Eve who thought that picking the forbidden fruit would bring them enlightenment only to bring about a disaster which has plagued the world all the way up to today.

Satans “enlightenment” leads to a dark to torturous hell while Jehovahs light leads to a bright Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) enlighten my every step to continuously walk in Thy true light because it is the light of life. I sincerely request this in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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