Do Not Even Associate With

  do not allow them to control you

Do not even associate with a man given to angry outbursts; Or go [along] with a hot-tempered man, Or you will learn his [undisciplined] ways And get yourself trapped  [in a situation from which it is hard to escape].Proverbs 22:24-25  Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are explosive folks. You can be having a nice social conversation with them and suddenly they will explode in a rage. I have seen it numerous times and it was terrifying, until Jehovah blessed me with the peace, wisdom and grace to be firm with them and inform them that that childish behavior is not tolerated with me so either straighten up or get away from me. If they refuse to obey then I inform them they can discuss it with the police. Then they leave, all the while screaming like a banshee about how I am abusing them (it is not my fault, it is yours is their mantra). 

Do not try to reason with them because there is no reasoning with a fool. All that will happen is that you will get into a yelling contest with them and lose your temper, Then, they will manipulate you to lose your temper even more and they will be laughing at you on the inside.                                         

Never get into an argument with a fool. To do so, you have to go down to their level and they will beat you every time from experience. Anonymous 

I speak from a lot of experience.

In the future I refuse to even acknowledge them (even to say hello or good morning) because that opens the door and they are thieves. They will steal your peace and you will get into another yelling contest. Again, I speak from a lot of experience.

I depend upon the Holy Spirit to bless me with strength, wisdom and grace to handle these poor pitiful folks. Yes some of them are like this because of unresolved issues in their lives but most are like this because they just love to fight.    

The pitiful thing is though, that because they are cursed with this disposition, they have no friends, especially in their elder years.                                    

No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace while dealing with a war monger who attempts to steal it from me. Thank you for blessing me with the wisdom in how to prevent them from stealing Your Divine gift from me. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

Moral Rot Within a Nation.

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability. Proverbs 28:2 New Living Translation Bible

This should be a wake up call to every citizen of every nation in the world today.

I cannot find one nation on this planet that is governed by Jehovahs morality.

The only way to a peaceful, productive, harmonious society is to govern both the individual, corporate and government to live a life governed by Jehovahs standards. Every thing else only leads to chaos and destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Instead they are governed by greed and political correctness. It seems as of everybody is fighting for their own agenda instead of building their society together. This is especially true of the liberals but the conservatives are not with out guilt.

“When you say ‘There’s too much evil in this world’, you assume there’s ‘good’. When you assume there’s good, you assume there’s such a thing as a ‘moral law’ on the basis of which to differentiate between good and evil. But if you assume a moral law, you must posit a ‘Moral-Law Giver’, but that’s Who you’re trying to disprove and not prove. Because if there’s no Moral-Law Giver, there’s no moral law. If there’s no moral law, there’s no good. If there’s no good, there’s no evil. What is your question?” Ravi Zacharias

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice!) always guide me to behave in a way which exemplifies Your moral law. May I never take one step from it for a step away from Your moral law is a step towards Hell. I implore You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Removing Obstacles that Block Your Way

 Every man did what was right in his own eyes. Judges 17:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

That sounds a lot like today.

When you study history it is like a never ending circle.

First folks join together and work as a community and are respectful towards Jehovah. Then, when they begin to prosper they forget Jehovah. Because they forget Jehovah they have no spiritual guidance and fall into a very degenerative lifestyle which ultimately destroys their society.

Read the Book of Judges in the Bible and then study any history you want, European, Asian, Middle East, African. They are all the same.

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Proverbs 3:5-6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Now this is the wise man and womans choice of life. We trust in Jehovah more and more as we get closer and closer to Him in a loving obedient life. For some it comes quickly but for most of us it takes decades to develop this trust (it is not Jehovahs fault nor ours. Being humans it takes time to develop this lifestyle). He never leads us wrong. We rely upon Jehovah for our daily portion of spiritual, mental and physical nourishment. He always supplies us. Because we are human our intellect is inferior to Jehovahs. The wise man and woman rely upon Him for guidance. He leads us away from disaster and towards victory.

I acknowledge Him to others when they ask why I live the way I do. I know with all my heart He loves me so therefore He only wants what is best for me.

The more time we spend with our Beloved, the more we are in tune with His voice and recognize it over the sly serpent (satan). The result of this is a fulfilling life of love, peace, joy, purpose and meaning. What more could one ask for in life? Trust Jehovah, He will never lead you wrong. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for always being honest with me in guiding me down the proper path to take in life. It has prevented a lot of unnecessary hardship, sorrow and pain. I venerate You in the name of my Divine Heavenly Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.

A Heavy Load is Lifted

 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.1 Peter 5:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Why carry a load you are not intended to carry?

Jehovah is our loving Father. He cares about us and is always there to talk with like the closest companion we could ever be blessed to have (because He is).

When I have worries Jehovah always answers in two manners.

One: He will guide be to Bible Verses (Not just one, sometimes He will guide me to verse after verse for over an hour. Each one affirming His care for me and the action that must be taken to alleviate the concern. Sometimes the action must be taken independently, sometimes it must be taken as team work with the Holy Spirit, sometimes Jehovah just says to be patient, everything is in His capable hands. Every time what He says comes to fruition).

Two:Sometimes it is verse after verse how He loves me and cares for me. He will never desert me nor leave me. This brings great comfort and reassurance.

When we cast our cares upon the strong shoulders of Christ a heavy load is lifted from our minds, spirits and bodies and replaced with peace of mind. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for consistently delivering me from all of my worries, problems and heartaches with Your strong, loving, gentle hand. I love the numerous ways in which You accomplish this. It fills me with awe, wonder, respect, love and admiration. I praise You in the name of my most loving best friend in who I always confide in Jesus Christ. Amen.

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

All for What?

thank him

 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 New Living Translation

Worry is a thief.

It robs you of your physical health, it robs you of a good nights sleep, to robs you of your mental health, it robs you of your personal relationships.

All for what?

Most times the things I worried over never happened any way. And whether way it is always out of my hands so why waste your time and energy ?

It has taken me a life time to have confidence in Jehovah. Now, I just thank Him for being such a loving Father and have faith in that it is in His capable hands.

Worry is an insult to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When or if He directs me to take action I obey Him because of faith that it will bring success. If He says not to take any action my hand remains still because of faith that if my hand moves it will only bring disaster.

“Worry is a conversation you have with yourself about things you cannot change. Prayer is a conversation you have with God about things He can change.” unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace as I lay everything at Your feet. I have complete confidence in Your provisions in every aspect of my life. I exalt You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

Get Away Fast.

furnace of hell

Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Galatians 6:7 New Living Testament

This is why it is best to get away fast.

Get away from those who are walking in wickedness. They will slowly bring you into the dark side and destruction.

You do not believe me, look what happened with Lot. Read the whole account. First he camped outside of the city, then he was at the gates and finally he was living amongst them. The same will happen to you.

You can not wallow with pig unless you are willing to go into the mire with them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This is why you need to be more concerned about Jehovahs kingdom that satisfying the flesh.

Look at the ads on TV and your ipad and phone. They all say buy, buy , buy. We will give you easy credit. In the end you end up being miserable and a slave to the credit card companies.

When you are in communion with our loving Heavenly Father you are blessed with abundant peace, love, joy and purpose in life.

There are only two choices in life: be a slave to society and be miserable or be a child of Jehovahs and be loved and filled with peace. I prefer Jehovah. Which do you prefer? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) always shine Your bright light of righteousness into my life so as to prevent me from straying into the damnation of darkness. I sincerely request this in the name of the light of the world 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.
