Who Will Spend It?

chief-duty                                                                                                                           

We heap up wealth not knowing who will spend it. Psalm 39:6                   

Chances it is going to be the government and the banks. In my opinion they are the two biggest legalized thieves to ever curse the earth.

Then it is going to be ungrateful family members. The only time they ever wanted anything to do with you is when they wanted money from you.

So, my question is: why are you wasting your life and health for ungrateful ones when you should be investing it in Christs Kingdom?

 No, I am not referring to your last will, I am referring to the here and now.

No, I am not referring to your finances, which is always needed but rather your time and expertise.

How much time and effort do you put into expanding Christs kingdom?

How much time do you spend in expanding the jewels in the crown Jesus is going to place upon your head when you meet Him in Heaven?

Invest in Christs Kingdom not the worlds. His kingdom has eternal dividends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense ) for teaching me to invest in Your eternal kingdom which pays Heavenly dividends rather than waste my time, effort and finances on that which vanishes in time like the morning mist. I thank you in the name of He whose blood was invested in bringing Your children into Your eternal home Jesus Christ. Amen                                   

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

But by Subtraction

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The more you have, the less happy and contented you are. That is a proven fact.

Most folks are puppets in the hands of big monopolies. They say if you have this you will be happy. Then, they charge you exorbitant amounts of money to purchase their product. Because you cannot afford it, it puts you into debt. Then, next year they come out with a new and improved product and the process it repeated.

If it gets between you and Christ, get rid of it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Going into debt and working long hours only to be exhausted keeps you away from Christ.

Live a simple life, you will be much more contented.

I speak from a lot of experience. I have always lived a simple, frugal lifestyle and for the most part am very contented. I see those I grew up with being very materialistic and are the most miserable folks you ever meet.

For me, my greatest joy, and satisfaction is when sharing a conversation with Jesus. It need not be about my problems (although there is nothing wrong with that but it is not to be the only time you talk with Him). Many times it is when we are walking in His creation (nature) that we just talk about anything and everything like the best friends we are. It is so enjoyable. He opens my eyes to all the beauty around me and how He loves me and takes care of me. I am contented with His daily provision in my life.

I have lived in abundance and in abject poverty but learning to depend upon and be grateful for Jehovahs daily provisions is one of the greatest lessons learned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now I do not worry about where my next meal is coming from nor hoard things. Now I do not foolishly waste His daily provisions but use them wisely as a manner in which to show proper respect and appreciation for my Fathers provisions.

“Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction: seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment. Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied only with Christ brings contentment.” Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for patiently teaching me that my wants will never bring me satisfaction but being content in Your daily provision brings a lot of contentment, peace, appreciation, respect and peace. Next to being blessed with loving communion with You, these are the greatest of gifts You daily bless me with. I am in deep gratitude to You in the name of Your greatest gift to me 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.

We Must Do It for the Right Reason.

loving to each other

 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 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many folks read this and use it to try to manipulate Jehovah. They foolishly believe if they give a dollar to a cause of their choosing they can demand Jehovah give them back a thousand.

First off you must pray for direction in where to give wisely and that wisdom come from Jehovah.

So say you give to a street bum that is going to use the money to buy drugs or booze. What a waste of money. The same is to be said for theses scammers that give heart jerking scenes on TV like giving to help others in poor countries when most of the money will go to a CEO who makes millions off of suckers.

On the other hand say the Holy Spirit guides you to a place where you meet someone who needs support to meet their daily needs. That is a wise use of money. And, yes that has happened to me on more than one occasion.

Secondly, we must desire to give as an act of love for others rather than love for self.

So instead of giving a little expecting Jehovah to give you a lot so you can go on a cruise it not of the right reason and will be rejected by Jehovah. Rather, when seeing an opportunity presented by The Holy Spirit to give to someone who needs help and deserves it- is appreciative of it and will use it wisely, we give with a desire to help rather that expect a reward from Jehovah.

Finally, when we give it will come natural to give praise to the Lord for the opportunity He gave you to do good.

From my experience, the Lords blessing will come upon you in an unexpected way, in an unexpected time so there is no doubt it is a gift from Him. This causes us to love Him and praise Him all the more.

We must give, but, we must do it for the right reason. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with answering my requests (prayers) for Your wisdom in where to joyfully donate to causes in which You find worthy so as to invest the finances wisely. I praise You in the name of He who invested His blood for us to have a eternal home in Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen

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

That Which is Not

PROVISION

“Why do you spend money for that which is not bread, And your earnings for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight in abundance. Isaiah 55:1-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus is the bread of life.

Why do you waste your time and money on things that bring no lasting satisfaction to your life? Indeed, how many have gone into debt (becoming slaves to their masters, the banks, in a feeble attempt to satisfy their fleshly desires)?

We need to devour the word of Jehovah like a starving man a smorgasbord every day. It is good for our bodies, minds and spirits. Jehovah joyfully supplies this feast in abundance to all who ask of Him.

Where can you find this smorgasbord?

Why your Bible of course. It has a feast of wisdom, dainties of joy, strength for those who are weak, healing medicine for those suffering heart ache and soothing comfort for those going though rough times. It is truly the best meal you can consume every day.

Consuming a daily meal of Jehovahs word is the most nutritious and best meal of the day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (Jehovah our Nourisher ) for blessing me with the most delicious, nutritious meal there could ever be (the Bible). I love to daily gorge myself on its awesome delicacies. I thank you in the name of He who provided some of the best fancies of the meal 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.

We Find Freedom When We Find

god is faithful

 So if the Son makes you free, then you are unquestionably free. John 8:36 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some folks invest money to be free from worries when they retire. Many times their investment falls flat and they are left penniless.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always take care of our retirement needs. We are free from that worry.

Some folks invest in property for security. Then the market collapses and their property is worth nothing compared to the amount they paid for it or their home is destroyed through natural resources.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always make sure we have a comfortable place to live on this earth until He takes us home.

Some folks exercise and eat properly to stay healthy in their elder years. Then a disease racks their bodies and they are left crippled the rest of their years. They are left hopeless.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always take care of our spirits which is far more important than our bodies.

There is nothing wrong with these investments in of themselves but when they are used to be independent of Jehovah they are very fragile and those who depend upon them left void of all freedom of worry and need.

“We find freedom when we find God; we lose it when we lose Him.” Paul E. Scherer

“You have made us for yourself [Lord], and our hearts are restless till they find rest in you” St. Augustine

Prayer: Oh my most Beloved Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) thank you for coming into my life and freeing me from the unmerciful bonds of fleshly slavery (lusts).And, to be free to love You and be loved by You in the divine manner which You desired from the fist man and woman to have communion with You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this most treasured gifts a possibility Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Carries Us to the Sea Of

following chtists example

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness Galatians 5:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We emulate the one we love and idolize.

As Christians that means we are to transform ourselves to behave as our best friend Jesus showed by His example while here on earth. We are to be led by the Holy Spirit where He has specific plans prepared for us. It is difficult at first (speaking from first hand knowledge) but becomes as natural as breathing the more we are obedient unto His direction. Now take this to heart and never forget it. Even though the ones we are gracious to may be ungrateful (which from experience they are) there are those who are watching that it will have a profound effect on.

One time when in China I used to give food instead of money to beggars (for which the vast majority was very angry for). After about a month I noticed many of the folks around that area were giving food to the beggars instead of nothing. This was a curious behavior because the beggars are usually ignored. Then the Lord brought enlightenment to me that they were emulating my actions. Wow.

And, remember this: “There is no small act of kindness that is not great in Heaven.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

“The stream of spontaneous acts of Godly kindness carries us to the sea of contentment and peace.” — Constance Hurst-Howard

One thing to remember as well as that there are certain area’s we are not to go to because they are unworthy and nothing good will come of our actions. Yes there were some area’s Jesus refused to preform any miracles in because of their unbelief so it would have been a waste of time. That is why it is imperative to depend upon the Holy Spirits guidance. He knows where to best invest your time, efforts and finances.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with joy in my heart and peace in my mind when I obey Your guidance to preform spontaneous acts of kindness to others. May it be a floodlight for others to see Your astounding love. I thank You in the name of He who preformed the most incredible acts of kindness during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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
