If You do Not Teach Your Children

the rock of truth

 To Train up a child in the way he should go [teaching him to seek God’s wisdom and will for his abilities and talents], Even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 Holy Bible amplified Version

Teach them when they are young because when they are adults they will not listen to you.

Every morning read them Bible stories and talk with them about it (including respectfully listening. Too many parents talk but refuse to listen. Children hate that).

During supper ask them how their day went and seek verses to help them deal with difficulties. Read them Bible stories at bed time and talk about it with them.

Teach them to pray to their Father in Heaven in a loving manner (not like they would with Santa Claus but with someone they are blessed to enjoy a loving relationship with).

Lead by example. Let them see you pray sincerely. Let them see your failures and how you reconcile them with anyone you have offended and with Jehovah. Teach them by example of morals and how sometimes they will suffer because of them but will be blessed with peace of mind. Teach them by exhibiting a good loving Christian relationship with your husband or wife (this excludes homosexuals because their is not a Christian relationship when they are living a satanic lifestyle).

You are in a spiritual battle for your childrens eternity. Take it seriously because satan certainly does. So too does Jehovah.

“If you will not teach your children to follow Christ, the world will teach them not to.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) bless me to imitate You in teaching all those who are not as mature as I in our Heavenly love affair with You.                                                            Please bless me to listen , understand and obey those who are teaching me as they are more mature than I. I sincerely ask this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

True Christian Love Must Be

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND 

The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.] 1 John 4:8 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

True Christian love must be . . .

Blended with all our habits. A habit is formed by repetition of actions over time until they become as natural to us as breathing. Therefore we need the Holy Spirit to guide us in our daily actions to habitually exhibit Christ’s love towards others at every opportune time that comes our way.

Diffused through all our conduct. Our conduct will be a spiritual by product of our habits.

Forming our character. Our character is formed by the the Divine will and attributes of Christ who has shown us what Holy character is by His actions.

It is His morals which is formed in or hearts , minds and actions not the perverted vile worldly ones. His is to be supreme in every action we partake every moment of every day. We can only succeed in this arduous undertaking through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to which we must constantly submit to whether it is delightful or difficult. Breathing in our desires.

Christian desire is for the the glorifying of Christ and the betterment of those around us with the ultimate goal of leading them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Speaking in our words. Loves words are encouraging, healing, teaching and comforting. The only way we can attain this is by constantly requesting the Holy Spirit guide our words and obeying His direction of speech in each individual circumstance.

Beaming in our eyes. Christian love must have gentle love in our eyes not earthly lusts nor hatred of prejudice towards others Love is the most difficult action we undertake every day.

Yet, it is also Divine in its nature and Heavenly in its rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) please bless me with an abundance of Divine love to bountifully share with others so as to emulate You. May this love direct them unto the greatest love, You which is one of the greatest gifts You may bless me with. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose infinite love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Known by His Deeds.  

Even a child is known by his deeds, Whether what he does is pure and right. Proverbs 20:11 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

When I was a teacher sometimes the children would misbehave. When I went to punish them they pleaded not to be punished and promised not to be naughty again. I agreed not to punish them if they would behave. Not even five minutes later they would be little monsters again. When I reminded them of their promise they laughed in my face and refused to acknowledge their promise. That is when the hammer came down and they received worse punishment. That quickly put a permanent end to that unacceptable behavior.

They knew what they were doing was wrong.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

I see it so often today when children are delinquent and the liberal judges let them off. This is wrong. Let the punishment fit the crime otherwise they just get worse.

You can bet with the teenagers when they are terrible you can trace it back to their childhood and lack of discipline in the family and in the schools. Then when they become adults they foolishly believe they can do what ever they want and there is no retribution for their behavior.

Most times they are disrespectful on their own initiatives.

Do not tell me it is not their fault it is societies fault, I did not make them do it. Do not tell me it is because they are poor, some of the most respectful folks I have ever met were dirt poor, do not tell me it is the families fault, I have met many respectful families whose children are little monsters and a heavy burden on the parents.

It does not matter how good or bad parents raise their children it is the childrens choices in their lives and the decisions they make will come back to either bless them or curse them. Joseph a son of Jehovah           

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless me to wisely teach the youth of today wisdom, integrity and righteous morals so as to avoid Your terrible judgement. I sincerely request this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Listen and Obey

GIVE IT ALL

Listen and obey.

Know, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

I know in today’s world of greed, corruption and self centeredness it is difficult to obey this command but it is the only way.

Everybody else cheats on exams why can’t you?

Well, maybe because when the graduate and try to get a contract the contractor will see you do not have the understanding or skill to perform your duties. Everybody else steals at work why can’t I? Well, maybe you will be the one that gets caught. Not only will you be dismissed but good luck on getting a decent job with theft from the company on your record and maybe a criminal record as well.

Why should I give to the food bank or animal shelter?

It is more important that I enjoy my coffee at a gourmet shop that overcharges so I can look good to others. There will come a time when you need help and no one will help you. Don’t fool yourself, it happens all the time.

On the other hand, there have been many times when I needed help and someone in an unusual way always comes to help me. There have been numerous times someone is lost and I guide them right to where they are looking to go. Then, there are so many numerous times I have experienced the same kindness reciprocated to me.

There is an old saying: what goes around, comes around.

Oh how hard the arrogant fall and what shame it is to them when it happens. I have seen so many puffed up arrogant swine be brought down into the gutter when they think everybody below them lives. What a mockery they are to everyone. Now they very people they snubbed are the ones that are their neighbours.

On the other hand, I have seen those who are humble before God and they always live a blessed life all their years.

Not my will, but Thy will be done should be front and center in every moment of the day. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with the strength and wisdom to be a child of righteousness that Your holiness will come shining through. May this create an opportunity to share Your grace with others and guide them to Your righteous family. I ask in the name of Him who never compromised His high morals and showed divine grace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Have Given So Much to Me.

GRADITUDE AND CREDIT

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.” Exodus 20:17  New King James Version

covet: to desire (what belongs to another) inordinately Mirriam Webster Dictionary

How much unhappiness is in our world today because everybody is trying to keep up with the Jones?

 

How much anger is there in the world because of jealousy?

Why not look at all the blessings Jesus has abundantly blessed you with?

If you are not grateful for all the little blessing Jehovah abundantly gives you every day, why should He give you big blessings?

In the western world so many people think they are hard done by. Go and live in a third world and you will be jealous of how content they are with the smallest of blessings.

 

I know, I have lived in both worlds.

I love to begin and end every day with thanking my Beloved for all the wonderful gives He generously blesses me with every day.

Lord Jesus, You have given so much to me. . . . Give me one thing more—a grateful heart. Amen.” George Herbert

Prayer:  Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for faithfully blessing me every day for that days needs. I exalt You in the name of He who provided food for the two thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

The Effect of Righteousness, Quietness and Assurance.

HOLY SPIRIT ENCOURAGER

The work of righteousness will be peace, And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. Isaiah 32:17 New King James Version

To find peace of mind you do not need to go to self help groups or read their books or most of todays psychiatry  (although there are some circumstances where it is necessary).

You need to find the quietness that only comes from the Prince of Peace.

It is the same thing with financial or relationships, His assurance is the best insurance you need.

There is a catch though.

You must live a righteous life.

Righteous: acting in accord with divine or moral law   Merriam-Webster Dictionary

The only way to succeed in this is to pray for the knowledge, strength and support of the Holy Spirit.

Then to be obedient to His will not yours.

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.” — Holmes

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance and strength to lead a righteous life every moment of every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who is our example of righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Will Call and You Will Answer.

FROM THE HEART

Then call, and I will answer; Or let me speak, then You respond to me. Job 13:22 New King James Version

You do not need any roseraries or recited prayers to connect with Jehovah. Matter of a fact He will ignore those prayers. You do not need to pray to dead saints to get Jehovahs ears.

 

You need an honest sincere heart that longs for a loving relationship with Him, to be honest with Him.

 

But if you expect Him to answer your prayers you need to listen to what He is saying or He will ignore your prayers. What is the sense of Him answering your prayers if you ignore His advice?

We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.” A.W. Tozer                                        

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kalel (voice of God) for always being there to listen to me when I desire an honest sinsere conversation with You. Thank you my love for Your comforting and encouraging words. Thank you my love for blessing me with You infinite wisdom to guide my life. I exalt You in the name of He who is always there to listen and answer us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                      

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