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.

The Source of My Confidence.

                                                  

 For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust and the source of my confidence from my youth. Psalm 71:5 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Society is a prison of keeping up phony appearances. To fit in with the “in crowd” you have to act in a way that conforms to what they think is right or wrong. They decide what to wear, what music to watch, what movies to watch and what food to eat.

I do not care what others think of me, I care what Christ knows of me and is making of me. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who is “they’ you ask?

It is big business disguised as someone wise. I remember a time when these two guys would rate movies and many folks would decide which movies to watch based on their assessment. The strange thing is though, the movies they thought were super great must see movies were boring and duds to me. The movies they panned were the great movies to me. Strange how they were paid by the big movie companies.

I see movie stars and so called musicians commenting on world events like they are so wise yet they are idiots who know nothing. Many folks are just as big of idiots because they take their word for it rather than do research on it. Those of us who do do the research and call them out are called racists, bigots, hemophiliacs, to name just a few.

There are so many that wait in freezing weather and spend exorbitant amounts of money to get the latest mobile phone from a certain company just to feed their ego.

Those of us who are wise have confidence in who we are in Christ. When The Holy Spirit directs our steps it is because the Trinity loves us and desires only what is best for us not to empty our wallets or bend to worshiping them as idols. We have confidence in our Teacher and Guidance Councilor. We have confidence in who we are because we know Jehovah made us this way (that is not to say we are perfect or that we do not need the burning off of the dross- bad habits). We have confidence in what He is molding us into.

“The greatest prison people live in is the fear of what other people think.” David Icke Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for speaking to me in a gentle assurance that it does not matter what others think of me but what is important is what Your know of me and about me and what I am capable of becoming when I dedicate my life unto You. I exalt Thee in the name who He who never listened to anyone but You in whim He was Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Light Above My Head.

                                         

I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and fulfilled it,” says the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One night while sleeping in the back yard in a tent I was awoken by a blue flame above my head. Thinking the house was on fire I frantically attempted to open the zipper on the tent to get mom out of the house. I was so upset I, at first, did not realize I was vainly attempting to find the zipper on the wrong side of the tent. When I did manage to finally open the tent door and rush outside, there was no flames at all. Confused I crawled back into the tent and promptly fell asleep.

When I woke up the next morning all of my finger tips were tingling, my heart felt as if it was going to burst and my head felt electrified. No, it was not a physical ailment that caused this, I am as strong as a horse.

During morning Bible reading this verse burned into my eyes.

There is concern about what will happen to me when mom passes on to the other side (I am an unpaid caregiver with no savings). Every morning I thank the Lord that even though I do not know what is going to happen, one thing for certain is that He will always take care of me.

In the four years of being a caregiver I have worked tirelessly fixing this place up by myself. The only help the rest of the family is, is when they help themselves to moms money every month. They never come down to help and only call when they want money.

One day after crying out to the Lord about the unfairness of it all, He directed me to go sit out on a trail with my Bible. He spent three hours with verse after verse educating me that the wicked shall lose their inheritance and the righteous shall inherit theirs. I kept on replying that I know my inheritance is in Heaven and that is all I want but it would be nice to have some help from the rest of the family in caring for mom. Finally I have taken the attitude that I get what can be done done and not stress out or work myself into exhaustion attempting to do all the work myself.

This verse seems to be His word pounding into my thick skull that all the work I have done is not for someone else (the wicked family) to profit from (because of the beautification of the property the house has increased in value, which I do not care about but they do because it means they get more money from the inheritance). I shall dwell upon this land in peace, love, joy and security because Jehovah says so and He never lies.

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. Because I know, I KNOW, He holds the future, And life is worth the living just because He lives.” Bill & Gloria Gaither

For I have taken all this to heart, exploring and examining it all, how the righteous (those in right standing with God) and the wise and their deeds are in the hands of God. Ecclesiastes 9: 1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you are serving the Lord and are concerned about anything I pray this article has blessed you with strength, confidence, peace and joy.

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with Your Divine provision through out all of my life. Thank you for promising me a wonderful retirement plan which surpasses anything the world can offer. I exalt Thee in the name of He who will greet me in Your greatest retirement Home every conceived Jesus Christ. Amen

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

But Be Wise.

If anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

I live in a farming community. When a boy it was understood that if you wanted to eat you had to work.

Today farmers bring in off shore workers because the welfare bums refuse to go out an do an honest days work. They believe they should be pampered and given everything with no effort on their own behalf. This goes down through generations. Yes they are bums.

Bums are described as a person who avoids work and sponges on others; loafer; idler. They avoid work like the plague, they are idle and always getting into trouble, usually with alcohol and drugs and yes they are parasites of society living off of others because we have to pay for their laziness with our taxes.

Instead of the liberals cry babying about how bad these dregs of society are why not force them to go out and earn their keep?

They do not appreciate help when given to them because they believe it is owed to them.

I know of many food banks and soup kitchens that have closed down because these bums demand money from the volunteers and threaten them if they do not give them money, in many instances the police were called. Finally they could not get any volunteers so it had to be closed down. Instead of using their free loading money (welfare) to buy food they go out and get tattoos and drugs and then cry because they have no food and expect us to feed them. I unfortunately see it all to frequently here.

Instead why not have churches support working families in their own church or of neighbors they know who are the working poor?

The flip side of the coin is these big corporations that are constantly cry babying  (scamming) for money to help folks in the third world countries. The CEO’S make millions a year in salary and the feeble trickle of money that does go to the countries goes to corrupt government leaders. The other problem is that these NGO’s put the local businesses out of business.

Why not put money into investments to help the local folks in those countries start their own business?

The other one is for these big corporations asking for money to help cure disease or to help the local hospitals. Again the CEO’s make millions and why do we pay money for taxes if not to be used for health care?

Be generous but be wise in where you give. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with speaking to me and guiding me to use the resources You provide me with to invest them wisely. I thank you in the name of He who is the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Will Surely Suffer

                                             

He who puts up security and guarantees a debt for an outsider will surely suffer [for his foolishness],
But he who hates (declines) being a guarantor is secure [from its penalties]. Proverbs 11:15
Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is something you need to consider before you co-sign for anything.

I know many elderly folks who have co-signed loans for their childrens house and or a new car. The children refuse to pay the loan and the parents are stuck paying it for them, many times including having to sell their own homes ( I do not know how anybody can live with themselves doing that).

Before you co-sign anything do a thorough back ground check on them.

Now of course they can line up scam artists to lie for them.

But, be wise and go to the truest Character reference there is.

His name is Jehovah and with Him there is no secrets.

When He reveals the truth to you stand by His choice on whether to co-sign or not. It will prevent a lot of financial hardship and bad feelings in the family and with good time friends.

Yes family is the worst offenders.

If they are not reliable DO NOT CO-SIGN. If they get pouty just stand firm and inform them that their credit from past experiences is substandard. Come back when you have learnt to grow up ( and how can they grow up if you keep on bailing them out?).

If that means cutting ties with them, good riddance to bad rubbish.

I know from a lot of bad experiences myself and by life is better off without them in it.

I have met many who when you have money they are your best friends. When the money runs out I am a stranger to them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) bless me with Your Divine defense of wisdom and strength to protect myself from the scheming wiles of free loaders which would bankrupt me if they could while giving nothing in return. I humbly request this in the name of He who always exposed evil leeches Jesus Christ. Amen.

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