Not Good Enoughs.

HE IS THE BOSS

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever worked for the “not good enoughs”?

These are ungrateful folks that no matter how hard you try it is never good enough for them. I used to be a people pleaser. It was not that their praise was needed for my ego but that there was a genuine desire to make others happy. It was and still is devastating to try your best only to experience their gratitude by slowly slicing it apart as with a knife with their complaints on how it is not good enough.

Now, that I am a more mature Christian, I seek Jesus’ pleasure not mans. He does not make a big deal out of it but there is a gentle loving feeling in the heart when He softly whispers:” Well done My good and faithful servant.” That is more rewarding than anyone else could say or do.

Work for Christ nor man. He is much easier to work for and much more appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6 for blessing me with the honour of being Your obedient servant. I am filled with such wonderful joy when You esteem my dedication unto You in daily service to the King I adore. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen

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

We Will be Just as Guilty As

CORRECT A FRIEND

Confront people directly so you will not be held guilty for their sin. Leviticus 19:17 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Yes, we are to call out wickedness when we encounter it. Other wise, we will be just as guilty as the one committing the offense.

In most countries if you witness a crime and refuse to report it to the police you will be convicted of being an accomplice.

So too it is with Christ.

If you see someone living in habitual sin and do nothing to lovingly, graciously and, when needed, bluntly call them out for it, you are just as guilty as they are. Now discretion is required. You do not call out a spaced out druggie or there will be dire consequences.

We must follow the Holy Spirit’s leading. If He suggests we intervene we must do so under His tutelage.

We can only help others with the help of the Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (GOD My Helper) bless me that You will help me to convict the sinners in a manner in which it will bring them unto repentance. I humbly request this in the name of He who used wisdom and discretion in bringing those souls that were receptive to repentance unto Holy repentance Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Struggling With the Fact.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

 And the babbling fool [who is arrogant and thinks himself wise] will come to ruin. Proverbs 10:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many braggarts brought low and shame hangs upon their neck like a heavy brick. Those who once looked down on those they thought were beneath them quickly and with no warning become one of them. Fortunately I have nothing to do with social media because it does not seems too social to me. It is more like a platform for shallow folks to puff up themselves to the rest of the world. It seems pitiful to me. In reality they are very shallow, fragile folks. Criticize them and then see how mature they are then. If you really want to hurt them, just ignore them.

“Narcissistic people are always struggling with the fact that the rest of the world doesn’t revolve around them.” ~Unknown

On the other hand, there are those like myself that does not care what he says, she says or they say. I care about what Christ says about me. That does not make me arrogant but rather constantly listening to and obeying the Holy Spirits guidance to persistently improve myself.

The humble will see Heaven, the proud will see Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my heart a desire and means to worship He who is the only one worthy of being worshipped, You. May I never worship anything or anyone (including myself) other than You because they are all inferior to You. I thank you in the name of my idol Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

You Cannot Legislate Folks To.

 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you?You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. James 4:1-3 Holy Bible New Living Translation

DARKNESS

Today everybody screams that if you do not think and believe like I do, you are a sexist, racist, or homophobic. Well, this is the way of the liberals who are very intolerant of others all the while living a life worse than those they are condemning. From my experience, liberals are hateful, closed minded and dictatorial.

Just look at the recent event in the United States where peaceful mostly white Catholic school students (Covington High School) were visiting a cultural memorial and they were viciously attacked by those who appeared to me to be black hate mongers. Then the native came along (please do not tell me he just happened to be walking down the street with a drum in his hands, it appeared to me to be all set up) and started banging his drum. Did he not lie to the leftist media and say he felt threatened by a student who just stood there smiling while the native was banging a drum in his face? The leftist media took off with is as well as numerous other lefties and condemned the student who where the victims.

I personally find it easy to discuss opposing point of views with conservatives. Most (not all) are respectful of opposing views as long as they are not shoved down their throats.

Some of the liberal ideals are good as are some of the ideas of the conservatives. Why do we not just sit down and listen to each other, then have a referendum of the people. Which ever way the people decide is the way the society will go. That is true democracy. You cannot legislate folks to believe in what you believe and cannot force them to live the life you think is right. Now we do have standardized laws like being against the law to commit murder but there are also international laws that state that as long as I am not hurting anyone else I can, will and do live the life I choose (which by the way, is by living in accordance with the Holy Spirits guidance).

The governments of today and the media are pulling folks apart rather than being strong morally and uniting them together. Yes, both liberal and conservative are equally to blame. I believe they do it to gain power and prestige for themselves rather than being honourable and serving those with in their community.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

Christians are to be different. We are to guide others to Christs ever lasting government by our actions and then by teaching them His standard of behaviour that is acceptable in His Eternal government.

The more policies the government enacts that force people to behave a certain way, the less of a community we become. We may see the issue we pushed for go away, but we may also see people more cautious of each other, people less likely to ask for or offer help, less effective teamwork and innovation. The less they are comfortable with others and become more isolationist. This is a recipe for disaster. Anonymous

Prayer: Please Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me that my life is governed by Your righteousness rather than the hatred of the world. Please bless me to be ab ambassador of peace and helpfulness rather than a devil of division and war. In short please bless me to walk like my hero Jesus did in this wicked world so as to guide the hurting to Your loving arms. I humbly request this in the name of my mentor Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blesses with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Why Don’t They

For this is the will of God, that you be sanctified [separated and set apart from sin]: that you abstain and back away from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honour [being available for God’s purpose and separated from things profane], not [to be used] in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God and are ignorant of His will. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Most popular TV shows and movies glorify sex out as something lustful and fun. Why don’t they show those same people going to the doctor to get treated for syphilis, gonorrhea and aids?

Why don’t they show an unborn baby being ripped from its mothers womb and being thrown into an incinerator like a piece of garbage?

Why don’t they show most children born out of wed lock join gangs and lead destructive lives?

Why don’t they show the affected one with sexual disease explain to family and friends they have a life destroying disease because of their poor choices?

Why don’t they show people laying in bed afterwards wondering how it feel that someone just used your body to satisfy their lust and how they feel empty, sad and used?

Why don’t they show young people who lose out on going to school, getting a good education and job being cast into the abyss of welfare, booze, drugs and a meaningless life?

Could it be because sex sells while responsible, respectful, loving relationships do not?

Could it be because most people do not want to think of the life altering consequences of their foolishness?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) forgive the arrogant who blatantly give You the finger by abusing their bodies and then blaming You when it comes time to pay the penalty. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest Teacher who was ignored Jesus Christ. 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.

Things Which Have Been Confined.

 

‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish. Jeremiah 33:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we ask of Jehovah to open our eyes to revelations and His awesome magnificence of boy does He deliver.

He has pulled back the curtain to reveal amazing things in His creation which reveal His awesome beauty and attributes. The world does not see these things because they are in the material world. It constantly amazes me both what He shows me and that those around me do not see them.

The Lord blesses me with insight to the events that are unraveling around us and their significance. When I try to explain it to those walking in the world they believe me to be absurd. It astounds me that they cannot see what is so obvious. Many times it is if they are in a different dimension that me.

It is so wonderful to meet one who walks with Christ and that we see these same things. It is some of the greatest conversations I have ever enjoyed. It is as if we cannot stop talking about them and sharing them with each other.

Do not be shocked when you try to speak of Jehovahs incredible revelations He has blessed you with and those around you cannot see them nor understand them.

A great way to illustrate this is when I came home from serving the Lord in Asia and tried to explain what it was like living in a different culture that thinks differently than us. At first they all laughed at me and said that was nonsense. Then a few months later it became headline news ( of course one of the things I am referring to is the ghost cities that dotted the land around where I lived).

So too it is with those who are not of Christs. It is foolishness to them and absurd.

Those of us that are Christ centered in our thinking have revelations that are absurd to the world Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory) for revealing Your magnificent glory to me and for communicating Your awesome wisdom to me. I extol Thee in the name of my glorious King Christ Jesus. Amen

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