Is an Empty Life

foolish acts

 

 A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life. Proverbs 13:7 The Message

I remember being laughed at for having a simple basic cell phone. Can it be used to send and receive calls, yes. Can it be used to send and receive tex messages Yes. Then what more do I need. These folks would then laugh and tell me about all the gadgets on their cell phones. The questions asked would be do you need or use them do you know how to work them all they why did you waste all that money purchasing something you will not use Of course they would brag about it being a certain make while mine was from a lesser known (although reliable) maker. Then they would be asked how much they paid for said cell phone to which they would respond that they paid over a hundred times more that I did. So you went into debt just to pump up your ego? Sounds foolish to me. Then they are miserable because they become slaves to the banks paying for an overpriced piece of metal while I am living a contented life.

It is the same with clothes, food and living accommodations and every other aspect of life. They stupidly go into debt way over their head and live a miserable life while I live a simple life walking with Christ and am quite contented and grateful for His blessings of meeting my daily needs.

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its gain. This too is vanity (emptiness). Ecclesiastes. 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Follow the proper leader.

Jesus lived a simple life in communion with Jehovah and was very content. Should we not follow His lead? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Greed and vanity are a sin and there is always a price to pay for following the devils lead

“Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Exaltation unto You oh most sanctified Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for generous provision You faithfully provided me with every day. I extol Thee in the name of He whose cherished blood provides the key to open Heavens door 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

By What Actions do We

 

                                                   

Love is to be sincere and active. Romans 12:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met far too many phonies. As long as they can milk you for money, work for free or for services (like getting a free ride to work), you can walk on water but the minute you ask them for help, you are a stranger to them. If you ask them to contribute you are a greedy, selfish s.o.b. Unfortunately this is the norm of today.

But, we as Christians are not to be normal by the worlds standards but rather we are to be normal by Christ’s standards.

We are to follow the Holy Spirits guidance on where we can share our love for Christ by being loving unto others through service.

Yes, many times this will involve sacrifice whether it be time, money or energy.

Yes many times it will involve enduring harsh hardships, sacrificing yourself for Christ in sacrificing yourself for others.

But, ultimately ,it is an act of worship and love towards our Heavenly Beloved Father who has sacrificed so much for us and for our Heavenly King who sacrificed Himself for us.

Indeed, God showed His love for us by the action of Christs sacrifice. By what actions do we show our love for God? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) shine Your Divine light on where You want me to go and what You desire for me to do to shine Your glaring light of love unto a cold dark world.

I humbly beseech Thee this in the name of He who is the brightest light of the world 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

Because He Is

And whoever gives to one of these little ones [these who are humble in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water to drink because he is my disciple, truly I say to you, he will not lose his reward.” Matthew 10:42 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice that Christ says “because He is my disciple.”

He is not saying to give it to anyone nor everyone.

So many use this verse as a stepping stone for evangelizing to the unsaved which is wrong.

We see these scam artists using this to con folks into giving them money so they can help the poor children in say Africa. They give pennies on the dollar while pigging out on luxurious salaries for themselves.

Indeed when you give to help those people you are doing more harm than good. Because they are getting free food they have no incentive to work or practice birth control. The local farmers suffer because no one will purchase their produce which drives them into bankruptcy.

Now we are to help wisely by helping them start their own business and supporting it. By working to convince them to use birth control and supplying it to them.

As well, those that give of their time and or money, believing they are serving Christ are wrong. As Christians it is our duty to share the Gospel first.

If the people are receptive then we help, if not then move on.

It may seem cruel but why waste your time and resources on those who are not interested in their spiritual life when those who are will not have their needs met.

I have seen this numerous times in many years of missionary work. The only reason the folks come to the Bible meetings is to receive free food with no intention of coming to Christ. They walk away laughing at the naive Christians.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) bless this little sheep of Your that You guide me where my resources will be used providentially to expand Your kingdom and to help those whom You deem worthy of assistance.

I humbly request this in the name of He who helped the truly needy Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Good Measure.

                                                              

Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure pressed down, shaken together, and running over [with no space left for more]. For with the standard of measurement you use [when you do good to others], it will be measured to you in return.” Luke 6:38 Holy Bible Amplified Version

One thing I have found in my walk with Christ is He has a great interest payment system.

There have been numerous occasions when I have given without expecting anything in return. Some where down the line there comes a time when I need help and it is given in heaping portions.

If you want Jehovahs blessings you have to invest in His banking system.

Now if you are on a limited income that does not mean Jehovah expects you to do with out. Instead of finances you can volunteer your time which is just as important.

Of course before you give it is best to go to the best financial adviser, His name is The Holy Spirit. He will direct you where is the best place to offer your tithes of time and or money.

We are told that we are stewards of our time and money and will be held accountable for it when we face Christ. We will not lose our salvation but if we are niggerly here on earth with our time and money then Christ will reciprocate in Heaven with your reward.

Godly giving is the best investment there is Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with plentiful opportunities to invest my time and resources to places in which You direct me so it does the most good. Thank you my Beloved for pouring out Your manna in abundant portions to me in my time of need in response to my giving. I praise You in the name of He who gave His Holy blood for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Most Dangerous Thing.

 

                                        

For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil.1 Timothy 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many try to reach the end of the rainbow and destroy their lives and those around them in the process. Of course we all know there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. By the same terms there is never enough money for the greedy, they always want more and they do not care who they hurt in the process. The price they pay is a cold heart unto others and being loved by none in return. That is a sad trade off for things which cannot love you back.

As well, there is also the arrogance that comes from success. There is the attitude of I am a self made man, giving no credit unto Jehovah for the blessings. That is arrogant, rude, disrespectful and down right stupid.

A reason for this is because just as Jehovah has blessed you, so too can He take away the blessings in the blink of an eye. I have seen many in soup kitchens that at one time lived in mansions.

Success has ruined more people than failure.  It has been said that money is the most dangerous thing God can put into your trust.

Of the two, I choose Christ’s love over the love of dead material things which cannot love back. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) incredible blessing of sharing Your Divine love with me. This is indeed the greatest treasure of all. I exalt Thee in the name of He who emulated Your love for us while He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They are going to Have a Feast.

                                     

The eye that mocks a father And scorns a mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out, And the young vultures will devour it. Proverbs 30:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

From what I have seen being a live in care giver for my mom and a volunteer at a seniors home I would say they are going to have a feast.

So many of all ages gleefully throw their elderly or handicapped parents into a hell hole called a seniors home. I know most are very good at the level of care they provide but the living environment leaves much to be desired. I have seen many only come to visit when they want money and then treat their mother scornfully (to scorn means open dislike and disrespect or derision often mixed with indignation. To treat them with derision means the use of ridicule to show contempt and contempt means a strong dislike. I have seen many children and grandchildren treat their mothers like they had the plague. And, indignation means to be angry. The children and grandchildren are angry because their mother is still alive because they want her money in their inheritance. To mock means to to treat with contempt or ridicule. I have seen many make fun of their fathers infirmity in their elder years.

I have seen children blackmail their parents “If you want me to come and help you, you have to pay me.” If you want me to bring the grandchildren over you have to give me money.” This is all disgusting in the eyes of the Lord and they shall pay severely.

Now granted many parents were abusive to their children but we are to forgive them, that does not mean we are not to hold them accountable. If they refuse to repent, which means admit what they did, admit it was wrong, apologize and stop doing it, then we are to have nothing to do with them. If reconciliation is not important to them then it should not be important to us.

However to abuse them when they are in need is just as wrong in Jehovahs eyes.

That does not mean ravens will actually pluck out their eyes but that they will pay for their abhorrent behavior.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) just as you lovingly care for me instill in my heart a desire and will to be respectful, loving and caring to my parent so as to bring glory to You. I humbly request this in the name of Your most loving, respectful son Jesus Christ. Amen

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