Is an Empty Life

foolish acts

 

 A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life. Proverbs 13:7 The Message

I remember being laughed at for having a simple basic cell phone. Can it be used to send and receive calls, yes. Can it be used to send and receive tex messages Yes. Then what more do I need. These folks would then laugh and tell me about all the gadgets on their cell phones. The questions asked would be do you need or use them do you know how to work them all they why did you waste all that money purchasing something you will not use Of course they would brag about it being a certain make while mine was from a lesser known (although reliable) maker. Then they would be asked how much they paid for said cell phone to which they would respond that they paid over a hundred times more that I did. So you went into debt just to pump up your ego? Sounds foolish to me. Then they are miserable because they become slaves to the banks paying for an overpriced piece of metal while I am living a contented life.

It is the same with clothes, food and living accommodations and every other aspect of life. They stupidly go into debt way over their head and live a miserable life while I live a simple life walking with Christ and am quite contented and grateful for His blessings of meeting my daily needs.

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its gain. This too is vanity (emptiness). Ecclesiastes. 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Follow the proper leader.

Jesus lived a simple life in communion with Jehovah and was very content. Should we not follow His lead? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Greed and vanity are a sin and there is always a price to pay for following the devils lead

“Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Exaltation unto You oh most sanctified Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for generous provision You faithfully provided me with every day. I extol Thee in the name of He whose cherished blood provides the key to open Heavens door 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

But for Scars.

                                                                    

And if [we are His] children, [then we are His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His spiritual blessing and inheritance], if indeed we share in His suffering so that we may also share in His glory. Romans 8:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When in a boxing match the opponent will always land a few shots, many times leaving scars for the rest of your life.

So too it is with the Christians battle.

Make no doubt about it we are in a constant battle when we become Jehovahs children.

Yes we are in continuous battle with satan and his minions but we are also in ceaseless battle against society (more so in the west than in communist countries from my experience). The anti-Christ that goes by the label of liberals are really anti-Christs in their every belief. By anti- Christ it means they are against the morals set down by Jehovah and by default by Christ. Many times they will leave deep scars from battles we both win and lose.

The most severe battles of course are within our own families. They know us best so they know how to cut us deep and many do so with complete gusto. They will cut the deepest.

I have met many who have gone through seminary that are more in line with satan than with Christ and know little more than theology and nothing of having a loving relationship with Christ.

I see many who serve themselves by pretending to serve Christ, this is especially true with missionaries. They are there more to glorify themselves than to share the gospel. And, with many missionaries I have met, they live off of others by pretending to be serving Christ.

“God will not look you over for medals, degrees, or diplomas, but for scars.” Elbert Hubbard

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord my King Forever) for blessing me with the gift of suffering for You as You suffered for me. I know that when You see these scars You shall look at them, smile at me and say the words I long to here from Thy precious lips: “Well done good and faithful servant.” I give thanks for this grace in Your suffering name. Amen

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

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.

Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Do Not be a Windbag.

no-sword-words

 Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2 New King James Version Holy Bible

Have you ever met a wind bag?

They are the type of folks that just never shut up. They are usually arrogant and very opinionated as well. They are also the type to offer an opinion on a matter with very little knowledge of the topic. As a consequence they suffer a lot of foot in mouth disease. They are always putting their foot in their big mouth. Then when they look like fools and they become indignant when proven wrong.

Do not be a wind bag.

Those who talk much say little, those who talk little say much. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Have you ever met the quiet type? They hardly ever speak but when they do they are very wise in their opinion.

You enjoy listening to them and learn a lot from them. They are the type to listen and ask questions before offering their wise opinion.

Have big ears and a little mouth. It will keep you out of a lot of trouble. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Have you ever met the type who nonchalantly say:”So help me God.” They foolishly fail to realize they are taking an oath before Jehovah and He will hold them to account.

 I just inform those in the conversation that what I am saying is true to the best of my knowledge and am will to listen to opposing point of view based upon facts not feelings.

Prayer: Please bless me Jehovah KalEl ( voice of God ) to constantly guide me thought, words and actions to reflect Your Holy manner of conversation and to take seriously my oaths. I humbly ask this in the name of he whose speech was always true and respectful Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Are you his sword?

josephs-quotes-fault-finders

 

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 New Living Translation

Whether it is with a Christian or non Christian, when you are being pompously judgmental with others what opinion will others have of Christ when you claim to be a Christian?

Is Satan laughing while your words pierce the hearts of others?

Could this attitude drive people away from Christ rather than too Him?

Are you being a sword of Satan and driving through the receptive hearts of others?

When I was a teacher I would encourage students to come to church with me. Every Sunday it was the same filth of Satans followers pretending to be Christians with their arrogant self righteous behavior that would spew forth their poison (and most of them were elders in the congregation) . When my students saw this they refused to ever go to church again. Many refused to even discuss Jesus. They would say: “Jesus is supposed to be love, teacher that was anything but love.”

Whether you want to accept it or not, your words and deeds reflect Jesus when you claim to be one of His servants.

Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. Galatians 5:26 New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) guide my words to be encouraging and healing so that they will bring praise and glory to Your loving name. In the name of the greatest orator Jesus Christ I humbly ask. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
