Leads to the Solid Rock

HE LEADS ME

“So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, will be like a wise man [a far-sighted, practical, and sensible man] who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen multi million dollar homes slide down and embankment and drift out to sea in Southern California. The ocean washed away the sandy embankment so there was no solid foundation for the house.

I have seen houses that with stood hurricanes, flood, forest fires and earthquakes. They were built upon solid rock.

So too it is with our spiritual, mental and physical lives. When these are based upon the solid rock of Christ’s teachings they are on solid ground.

You always hear of new health fads (some of which are truly absurd) which in some cases are detrimental to your health. They are constantly changing. Today you are told not to eat a certain food and then tomorrow you are told it is a super food.

Obeying the dietary laws in the Bible is solid health advice to strong physical health on solid rock foundation.

There are constant psychological advice for your lives (sometimes by folks who could use a good psychiatrist). They change like the weather.

But obeying Christ’s advice always leads to the solid rock of mental health. There are always weirdo’s giving ludicrous advice on how to reach nirvana but it is astoundingly flawed.

Obeying Christ spiritual advice puts you on rock solid foundation. Hearing and obeying Jesus gives our mental, physical and spiritual lives a rock solid foundation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ma’oz (Lord my Fortress) for blessing me with the solid rock fortress of guidance and provision to build my house upon Your indestructible foundation. I thank you in the name of He who has laid that foundation for me, my cherished 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

Those Who Represent The.

HEAVENLY STRENGTH

 Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you. Luke 10:19,20   Holy Bible Amplified Version               

I do not believe Christ is referring to the creature but to those who represent the creatures.

So for example, the serpent represents satan while the scorpions represent those whose tongues and hands represent wicked ones out to do you harm.

The harm mentioned is not referring to physical harm but rather spiritual harm. They are out to poison your relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

The wicked ones are out to kill your love for them.

The authority is given by Christ in His name and the power comes through the Holy Spirit.

Because Jesus is the Supreme Power satan and his minions do not have the power to harm us (they can tempt us but never physically, mentally, nor spiritually harm us).

They are constantly around us which is why it is so important to stay close to Christ.

If we stray away from Jesus we are easy pickings for satan and his henchmen. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing this dedicated servant of Your with the necessary tools to defend myself successfully against the serpents and scorpions that come my way through the day. I glorify You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

This is Why There is So Much

LAUGH AT FOOLS

 For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4  The Holy Bible Amplified Version                               

This is why there is so much violence today. Folks try to fight spiritual battle on their own and fail miserably. The demons are far wiser and stronger than we. They know our weaknesses and how to manipulate them to perpetrate evil on those around us. They laugh because they not destroy us but those around us. The idiots of the world (liberals) mock the spiritual world and arrogantly try reason and logic. The demons can easily manipulate these for their own nefarious ends. They easily make fools out of liberals (not that they need any help in that category).

We as Christians have the supreme weapon to defeat the spiritual battle before it manifests itself into the physical one. He is the Holy Spirit. He will not only enlighten us to the demons heinous plans but the power to defeat them in our own lives and sometimes in others.

Concerning others there may be nothing in our arsenal but prayer. Do not take that tool lightly for the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. Do not think for a moment we are not in constant battle against the wicked ones. This is especially true for those that are close to Christ. They will stop at nothing (but the force of the Holy Spirit) to destroy our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Do not worry about this because The Holy Spirit is always with us. That does not mean we can play with the devil and expect the Holy Spirit to rescue us either.

There is a price to pay for foolishness. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defence) for blessing me with the best defensive weapon to defeat the wicked satan and his evil parasites when they attempt to destroy our loving relationship. Thank you for enlightening me to their wicked plans and how to thwart them. I praise You in the name of He who defeated Satan and his henchmen on the cross and the empty tomb 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.

The Longer You Delay.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts and passions. Romans 6:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a gardener I know full well that when a tree see becomes a twig you pull it out immediately. Otherwise, with some tree’s it is almost impossible to remove.

So too it is with sin.

The longer you dwell in the sewer of sin, the more it seeps into the pours of your body and spirit. This is a slow physical and spiritual death.

Now some say I will sin when I am young and sow me wild seeds. Then, I will repent when I get older. They are living a fools dream. I have witnessed a small seed not only germinate in a soul but also this leads to others sins and more and more sins until it completely consumes the man or woman. Just listen to a drug addict and most will share with you how it started out small and was fun. Then it became a cruel slave master. The slave master brought with him other slave masters who were just as unmerciful (more addictions). It becomes a living Hell. It amazes me that most drug addicts prefer this Hell rather than become clean (which is why all the free drug clinics are useless unless the addicted want help).

Almost all of my habitual sins began small and over time became deep rooted in my per sona. It took some serious and painful burning off of the dross by the Holy Spirit to cleanse me of them. We need to be constantly attentive to the Holy Spirits guidance in our lives to avoid these destructive temptations every day.

There are still a few that Jehovah allows to keep me humble and keep me reliant upon Him instead of myself.

“The longer you delay, the more your sin gets strength and rooting. If you cannot bend a twig, how will you be able to bend it when it is a tree?” — Richard Baxter

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for sending the Holy Spirit to help deliver me from poisonous sins which will destroy the Holy Spirit with in me if they are permitted to take root. I praise You in the name of He who yanked out the worlds sins with His blood 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

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

Prayer Knows No

                                                      

For there is no distinction between Jew and Gentile; for the same Lord is Lord over all [of us], and [He is] abounding in riches (blessings) for all who call on Him [in faith and prayer]. Romans 10:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah is colour blind and so are we, His children to be. Do you have someone of a different colour on your prayer list? I do not really know what colour they are on mine because it is not important to me.

Do you have someone on your prayer list from another country and do you let them know you are praying for them and willing to help them any way you can? I do not know how many countries my brothers and sisters live in that I pray for because it is not important to me.

We are to love all in the family of Christ as He loves us.

Prayer knows no boundaries whether physical, racial, or financial. We are all united in the spirit of Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for consecrating me into Your truly inclusive family. Thank you that I can share in the victories and help in the time of need to all brothers and sisters with in Your sanctified family.

I extol Thee in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. 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
