What is Idolatry?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty. Revelation 21:27 New Living Translation

Jesus is talking about those forbidden from entering Heavens Gate.

Do you see how repulsive idolatry is to Him?

You think you do not worship idols?

How about your pets? I have seen many pets rule the house instead of the owner. Yes I love our pets like they were my own children but instead of worshiping them, I thank Jehovah for blessing me with such loving creatures. See the difference? Continue reading

Your Eternity Bank Account.

live-generously

And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. 1 Peter 1:17 New Living Testament

Every act you do goes into you eternity bank account.

Oh you may foolishly think you get away with it here and now (and maybe you will) but you will be held accountable for it on Judgment Day.

You may not pay the piper here but you will definitely face the Supreme Judge later. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh, it is such a small and insignificant thing. You may think that your act of kindness was small and of very little meaning but everything is important to Jehovah. Now notice, the act must be done in a manner in which praise is given unto Jehovah. Otherwise you will receive your reward here and it will be meaningless in Heaven.

The praise need not come from the receiver, it may come from the giver for having this opportunity. There has been countless times when I silently joyfully praise Jehovah for an opportunity to help someone.

There is no small act of love shared with another, no matter how small, when done for Jehovahs glory, that is not great in Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with unlimited opportunities to share love with others as You abundantly share love with me. May these acts always guide them to You my most loving God. I humbly request this in the name of He whose love for me lead Him all the way to the cross 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

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

Reach Out to Them.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

But the stranger who resides with you shall be to you like someone native born among you; and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:34 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

They are everywhere, especially in todays electronic society, lonely people.

We as Christians are to reach out to them. It is the perfect opportunity to share explaining to them the prospect of being blessed with a loving relationship with He who is the best friend one could ever have and a loving relationship of which no other can compare.

Before adventuring out for the day may I suggest you ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to someone who needs compassion.

Trust, me , when you sincerely ask of Him, He will guide you to just the right soul.

May I suggest you take a course in how to approach others and how to listen to them. As well, it is advisable to carry around a list of services available to help them if need be. So, say for example say someone is lonely, why not find out their interests and help them find a club to join, especially a Christian one.

“We need to care less about whether our children are academically gifted & more about whether they sit with the lonely kid in the cafeteria.” unknown

Now discretion is required because of dangerous places and folks. Do not approach a junkie when they are high or someone who is so angry looking they look like they are ready to explode.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me with the guidance of the Holy Spirit to guide me to those with open lonely hearts unto Your most awesome love. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose love for the lost took Him all the way to the cross 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

The Recycle Man

do not allow them to control you

Today I am grateful that the Lord had me sleep in as late as He did. Normally I get up early in the morning, however, today I slept in. This was a blessing.

Moms nephew came for a visit and was gone by the time I came in the house (I sleep out in our Tabernacle, a tent, which is where I enjoy communion with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit every day).

He is nothing but trouble. He is a drug abuser, drunk, thief and trouble maker. She for some strange reason likes him. I would not spit on the best side of him if he had one.  I praise the Lord for the gift of extra pleasant sleep in order to avoid a spawn of the devil.

 

 

Every year I like to make Christmas cards out of photo’s of our cats (everybody adores them and really looks forward to receiving them) and share them with friends and important overworked  and underappreciated folks in our community.

These include police officers, doctors, nurses, personal support workers, fire fighters, ambulance attendants and the garbage collectors.

As well, I make a point to give special ones to pastors and Christian councilors (I believe they are the most over worked and under appreciated of them all.

The week before Christmas and the week after I forgot to give the recycle man his Christmas card and gift.

Today when looking out the widow I saw his truck drive by. He drives to the end of the street, turns around and collects the other side. I quickly got his gifts and card and dashed out to give them to him. He was very happy and we enjoyed a great conversation.

I am grateful for the Lord having me look out the window at that precise time and reminding me about the Christmas gift and card.

loving to each other

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God provides) for providing me the opportunity to enjoy sleep rather than endure being in the presence of a wicked one.

Thank you my love for providing me with the opportunity to share some cheer with another to bring glory to Your Holy name.

I praise You in the name of He who refrained being the the presence of the wicked ones and who gladly enjoyed sharing with others Jesus Christ. Amen

Stay away from wicked men less they pollute your soul and take you to Hell with them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Giving unto others enriches not only them but you as well. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Talk About Arrogant.

 Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive.  And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’  Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there.  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).”’ Luke 12:16-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Talk about arrogant.

This guy takes full credit while giving Jehovah none.

Did the rich man make the land fertile and productive or did Jehovah?

Than should the rich man not have given thanks unto Jehovah and share with the less fortunate as Jehovah shared with him?

Who determines when we die, the rich man or Jehovah?

Than should he not have used his time wisely to store up treasures in Heaven rather that sit on his laurels?

Should he not have given unto his community as Jehovah greatly gave unto him?

Did the rich man celebrate his good fortune with others or did he greedily keep his parties for himself?

Should we not share with others our good fortune as Jehovah as blessed us with them?

How about you?

Do you share in your blessings ,both great and small, with others or do you greedily keep them for yourself?

Do you publicly praise Jehovah for His graciousness towards you or do you brag about it as if it was you who did the accomplishment?

Do you waste your retirement years going on cruises or other luxuries or do you take this opportunity to share your time and wisdom with the younger generation?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with all of the abundant mental, physical and spiritual gifts provided for me on a daily basis.

May these be used as an opportunity to give thanks to You both privately and publicly and to be used to help those in Your family that are in need.

I joyfully give all praise unto You and request this blessing in the name of He who always used His Divine gifts for the benefit of others Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Terrified of Their Ultimate Destination

 But I will point out to you whom you should fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority and power to hurl [you] into hell Luke 12:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When folks deny the reality of Hell they are calling Jehovah a liar.

I have seen too many that they mock the Word of Jehovah and refuse to believe in Hell. This, shamefully, is extremely prevalent in much of the established churches today and amongst many evangelicals.

Sadly there is too little of Hell taught in churches today. I believe many more would come to Christ if they knew the alternative than those that would come to Christ because of His love for them.

I have seen too many who mocked Christ and Hell during their lifetime terrified of their ultimate destination on their death beds.

We all know there is a Heaven and that there is a Hell. The reason folks refuse to accept that fact in their lives is that to do so would be to recognize that they cannot do what they want in their lives without eternal repercussions.

Padre Pio was asked what he thought about modern-day people who deny the existence of hell. The saint replied, “They’ll believe in hell when they get there.” 

Prayer: I humbly request my Beloved Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice!) every opportunity to guide the lost away from eternal damnation and toward You Divine Heavenly kingdom.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who decides who shall enter Your eternal Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen

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