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

It is Not Pleasant When

                                                       

Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that continues to bear fruit, He [repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit[even richer and finer fruit]. John 15:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice it says “repeatedly”.

I believe this in reference to bad habits that are a part of our disposition.

It is not pleasant when the pruning occurs I can assure you and He is there to strengthen and encourage you. Some of the persistent bad dispositions will be with us all of our earthly life .

This is why the master gardener is constantly pruning them less they destroy not only us but also innocent ones with in His family that we associate with.

As He does this it enables us to serve Him with more gratitude which is a magnet to those in the world as to what (or should I say who) gives us daily strength.

“The vine dresser is never nearer the vine than when He is pruning it.”  Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for the difficult task of pruning the unproductive branches which are destructive unto me, those in our Heavenly family and to You from the Masters vine.

Thank you that during this constant pruning it provides ample opportunity to witness for You and bring the little lost sheep into Your Divine flock.

I exalt You in the name of He who is my Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

On the Alter Of

And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]Ephesians 4:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unfortunately, one of my bad dispositions is letting go of a grudge. Being more mature I have learned to place it at the feet of Jesus. He heals the wound and avenges the wrong doer.

Many times however, it is played out in my head where they are shamed while yours truly look like the hero. This childish fantasy is surely played out in all of our heads. Rather than dwell on the wound others have inflicted from personal experience, it is better to listen to old hymns that praise Jehovah. This fills the heart with joy rather than anger and bitterness.

Now of course the wound may need to be healed by going to righteous Christian councilors to help deal with the lingering pain.

Those that nurture the grudge are cultivating weeds of hate and anger which suffocate the beautiful plants of love and joy. They become mean, bitter angry old men and women in their later years.

Of course this devastating disease cause great harm to both the mental and physical body.

It also affects the relationship with Christ. Because He is love and there is hate and anger in the heart the two are not comparable.

I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: PleaseYAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal the cuts both superficial and the gougingly deep ones that have been inflicted upon me.

Please empower me to concentrate on all Your loving attributes instead of foolishly wasting my time rerunning the event over in my head where I glorify myself while shaming the offender. That is such a wast of time and is very childish.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Love to Listen To

                                       

“With the aged [you say] is wisdom, And with long life is understanding. Job 12:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being in my elder years I have been on both sides of the coin.

In my younger years I loved to listen to elders for advice (not all of them of course, only the righteous ones). This has prevented a lot of disasters in my life.

When I was stubborn and ignored their advice it always ended it catastrophe.

Now, being in my elder years myself, I love to offer my experience to the younger generation.

Most of them foolishly believe they can get all the wisdom they need from the internet and that us old foggies are stupid. That is a very unwise decision to make.

I love to listen to old foggies. Now not all of the elderly are wise and should not be listened to, only listen to the righteous ones.

Your elders have more of lifes experience than you. Listen to them and prevent a lot of hardships in your life. Arrogantly ignore them at your own peril. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with all those Godly teachers You have guided me to guided to me for sharing their prudent advice in my life.

Thank you my Beloved for blessing me with the opportunity to share my discretion with those who are less experienced in life (no matter their age) so as to guide them away from disaster and towards success.

I exalt Thee in the name of the most astute teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Pray for One Another’s

                                       

Pray for one another’s well-being, contentment, and protection. 1 Peter 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Praying for others is an important part of daily prayer. When we see others in need it is part of our Christian duty (duty is an act of love) to sincerely, continuously pray for them. Do not pray for them once and then forget about it but continually pray form them. It is also good for them to know you are praying for them. As well, ask them how things are going to see how effective your prayer is because in doing so you are reminding them that your prayer is constant because you care about them.

An added benefit is when you see someone who is not a Christian having difficulty and you inform them that you are praying for them. From my experience, they are always shocked. This is a great opportunity to share Jesus with them.

Do not take prayer lightly.

When you are a Christian you have a constant hot line that is never busy to our Heavenly Father and He listens and answers the righteous man or womans prayers.

The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“Prayer has a way of blowing wind into other sails in your life that you might not even be praying about.” Adam Stadtmiller

Prayer: Please El Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with Your supreme knowledge of who to include in my daily morning prayers so that they will be used to the best effect. I humbly request this in the name of He who taught His disciples to proper manner in which to seek Thy favour Jesus Christ. Amen May

Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
