And Who is Their Lovers?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

For people will be lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused], lovers of money [impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane 2 Timothy 3:2 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Why do folks have to have the latest gadget? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course. Why else do they “need” a name brand for which they pay exorbitant amounts of money for the name when a phone by another company is far less expensive will do the same thing?

Why do folks participate in charity runs or give to public displays to food banks? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course. If they truly cared would they not donate a weekly portion of their salary to said causes?

Why do folks desecrate Jehovahs creation (which is us) by covering their bodies with tattoos which in my opinion makes them look like they belong in a freak show? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course.

Self love is the root of all evil dispositions in mankind. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The list goes on and on.

These folks are shallow, self centered and insecure creatures.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Philippians . 2:3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I care not what he thinks of me or what she thinks of me nor what they think of me. I care what Christ knows about me and that is that I am His. And that is all I need to know Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) please bless me to be submissive unto Your Divine hand in molding me into the beautiful creation You intend for me to be. It is in Your eyes and Yours only that I desire to be a pleasing masterpiece. I sincerely request this in the name of He only only stayed focused on You when He walked this planet 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

Let a Man Meet A.

Let a man meet a[ferocious] bear robbed of her cubs Rather than the [angry, narcissistic] fool in his folly. Proverbs 17:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                           

Folly is described as: the state or quality of being foolish; lack of understanding or sense, a foolish action, practice and a costly and foolish undertaking. Another word for foolish is stupid.

A narcissist is described as  tending to derive gratification from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes.

Speaking from personal experience a narcissist does not love anybody or anything as much as they love themselves. They are always bragging about themselves and thrive on being the constant center of attention. They are very shallow and easily offended. When offended they become very cruel and constantly imagine the wicked manner in which the offender will pay with shame and humiliation. They take it to the extreme.

Beware of them.

Yes they can be dangerous, although most times they are not.

They have no sympathy for their victims and delight in watching them suffer. Whenever I encounter one and they share with me their wicked schemes I merely point out to them the folly of it in the consequences they will suffer far outweigh the satisfaction they will receive and I will have no part of it.

If I am the one they intend upon inflicting with their foolish perverted revenge I explain to them  with confidence and strength that there is a God in Heaven and He passes sentence that the wicked shall be punished seven times seven for their wickedness.

It shocks them. It is a coin toss how they will react.

Sometimes they will stay away in fear and sometimes they foolishly pursue their evil schemes. Yes sometimes they succeed but in the end it costs them far more than they gain when they suffer Jehovahs harsh mighty hand of justice.

Narcissist’s pretend to be strong but really are weak, stand up to them or they will bully you.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to be by your side and no narcissist can stand up to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi  (The Lord is my Refuge) for blessing me with the refuge of Your words and guidance to deal properly with all the narcissist’s that enter my life. I exalt You in the name of He who dealt harshest of all with these plagues upon society Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Will Guide You.

                                      

But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you. John 16:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Holy Spirit is the best guide in every aspect of our lives. He has lead me through four uncharted territories in my decades long walk with Him. Each one was preparing me for the next.

Being a country boy I had no desire to move to the big city yet it was there He took me. While there He guided me to learn about natural medicine and first aid. As well He taught me about the Trinity and planted the seeds for our tree of love to grow and bare fruit. This knowledge held me in good steed while tree planting.

The next uncharted territory He led me to was tree planting. It was there that He taught me how to care for and about others. Most of my co-workers came from divorced families and they were unloved. I was the first one to ever love them and care about them. Again He also taught me about His majesty and grandeur there as well as His power, provision and protection.

This knowledge held me in good steed for the next uncharted territory He was leading me to which was teaching in Asia.

Most children there have never been loved nor respected by their parents. They had no one to confide in with their problems. The skills the Holy Spirit taught me in those tree planting camps was put to ample good use. The children felt loved, cared for, cared about, safe and secure in my class.

As well, the Holy Spirit was preparing me there for the next unknown territory. The majority of Asian I have met were narcissists. Under the Holy Spirits tutorship I learned how to properly deal with them.

This was preparing me for when I had to come home to be a live in care giver for my mom when she became disabled. My family was and is extremely narcissistic. The lessons learned in Asia has and still does hold me in good steed.

During the course of these travels I have learned to have more and more confidence and security in the Holy Spirits guidance.

I do not know where the next unknown territory is or if there is any more but I know the One, oh so very well, who will be guiding me is worthy of my complete and total trust.

“I know not the way God leads me, but well do I know my Guide.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit as my guide throughout all of my life. I praise You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

To All You Bigheads.

 The Son of Man must [of necessity] suffer many things and be rejected [as the Messiah] by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and must be put to death, and after three days rise [from death to life]. Mark 8:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is to all you bigheads. You know, the ones who are so full of themselves they have bigheads ( they are full of pride).

Before you go around participating in your favourite hobby, bragging about all of your wonderful, magnificent amazing accomplishments compare it to what Christ did.

Jesus suffered being unjustly beaten and tortured for all of humanity, what have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the agony of being nailed to a cross and hanging there for six long horrendous hours for all of those willing to accept His gift of His precious blood is the key to Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus willingly stayed on the cross and watched His beloved mother watch Him suffer a shameful death. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the vile ones laughing at Him, spitting on Him and making fun of Him so that we who accept Him as our Savior can become citizens of Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus died so that we who accept Him as our Heavenly Brother are adopted into an amazing Heavenly family. What have you done to compare with that?

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.” Isaac Watts

Kinda brings you down off of your high horse doesn’t it?

I know it does me when I begin to become bigheaded.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Yasha ( The Lord my Savior) for meditating upon Your awesomeness for what You have so graciously done for me to wipe clean all of my filthy sins upon my repentance. It helps to keep me humble in comparison to what You have done for me compared to what I have done for You and for myself. I adore You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

He Cannot Even Enjoy Them.

 

 As to the riches of his labor, He cannot even enjoy them. Job 20:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In China they call themselves “ House Slaves”. This is because they are so much in debt that most of their money goes to pay for an over priced apartment ( they do not have houses in China and call apartments houses). They are afraid to go on vacation because someone may break in and steal all of their valuables. There is the constant upkeep of the residence.

How much of a difference is there in the rest of the world to this enslavement?

The more material wealth you possess the more of a slave you become. Joseph son of Jehovah.

There have been numerous studies done that prove the more material wealth you have the less happy you are and the more paranoid you become. The less real friendship you have.

Gee does that not sound like something you should be envious of?

Then why are you envious of the martially rich when you can have the riches of Heaven in your grasp?

“Few rich men own their own property. The property owns them .” Robert G. Ingersoll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with an abundant supply of Your Holy love and provisions for my daily life and shall continue to do so throughout my life here. Thank you that You have prepared an amazing eternal home for me. I exalt You in the name of He who shall greet me there Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which One Comes From You?

  And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;  and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jehovah assigns as difficult task for you to do are you obstinate, stomp your feet and say I refuse like a spoiled little brat? Even though He reasons with you with His Word, Christian Councilors and signs.

Or, if He directs you to stop doing something do you obstinacy refuse?

Beware.

Jehovah only does what is for your good. So, if you refuse to listen to Him, you will pay greatly in the long run.

I have seen many obstinate folks refuse to listen and slowly sink deeper and deeper into a living Hell.

“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Perseverance means a continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.

Obstinacy mean to be sticking to an opinion, purpose, or course of action in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.

If on the other hand you obey Him you will learn to wait upon His time to mold you into the child He desire you to be. Through our hardships we become stronger in our trust in Him to see us through them and burn off the dross to become pure children of Jehovah. This will mold us into Holy children of Jehovah and be assured of our salvation. Do not think this is a one off experience. It takes years, even decades for Jehovah to accomplish His desire in you His beloved child.

That is why us older children need to come along side of the younger ones to strengthen them with our witness.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me to guide me and strengthen me as You mold me into the child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of He whose strength helped Him endure the horrible cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Peevish Discontented Minds

  The whole congregation of the Israelites [grew discontented and] murmured and rebelled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,and the Israelites said to them, Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and ate bread until we were full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this entire assembly with hunger.” (To understand Israel’s rebellious behavior, it is important to grasp the contrast between life in Egypt and nomadic life in the wilderness. Despite the hardships of slavery survival was not an issue in Egypt, where they were guaranteed food and other necessities. But the desert wilderness was hostile and unforgiving, and survival was an art. Desert nomads needed to understand the wilderness in order to stay alive; they had to learn, among other things, how to protect themselves from the weather, where to find water and pasture, and how to find and prepare scarce food, or live primarily from what their livestock could provide them. So the Israelites viewed every new problem they faced as life-threatening. Instead of looking back and taking comfort from God’s earlier miracles, they doubted God’s ability and willingness to help them. Their fears and doubts subsequently came to be expressed as irrational anger toward Moses. ) Exodus 16:2-3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many of us ask Jehovah for something but are never satisfied?

We ask for a job but when we get one we do not like the work because it is too hard or it is too boring.

We ask for a place to live but it is too far from the bus stop or grocery store or park.

We ask for direction in life but it is not where we want to go.

We desire good Christian friends but can always find fault with them.

I think the real reason we are discontented is because of greed. We want the best and nothing less is good enough for us.

Jehovah blesses with what we need not always with what we want. Joseph son of Jehovah

That is the ultimate insult of ungratefulness and a huge slap in the face to our loving generous Father in Heaven. More so for those of us that have walked with Christ for any length of time and so can reflect back at His previous provisions for us. Peevish discontented minds will find fault with that which has no fault in it but that it is too good for them.

Those that might be very happy often make themselves very miserable by their discontents. Matthew Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a grateful heart towards you and those around me for all the wonderful blessings You and those around me share with me every day. I ask this in the name of the greatest blessing of which I am eternally grateful for Jesus Christ. Amen.

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