She Admitted That She Should

Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I know an elderly woman that her husband is having health problems. She knows she cannot take care of him and her children are in weak health so they cannot help her. The man is constantly in and out of the hospital.

A friend suggested she contact social services and they will bring in health care helpers to bathe him and change his diapers. They will consult her on how to make proper meals not just for him but for her as well. These services are free.

When he tried to convince her to contact this agency she admitted that she should but would not.

When he asked why she informed her that she was too proud to ask for help.

So, because of her pride her husband suffers and the children suffer watching their dad suffer. How many times do the innocent suffer because of someone else s pride?

How many times to they cause their own suffering?

Pride is arrogant selfishness which only reward is pain and misery. Joseph a son of Jehovah

If you suffer from pride please pray that Jehovah will send The Holy Spirit to cleanse it from your heart. Your mental and physical health will improve tremendously.

P. S The hospital finally had enough and informed her they are sending in health care assistants whether she like it or not. It has only taken two years but I am glad they were firm with her.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher 2 Timothy 3:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation ) send The Holy Spirit to teach the proud that their arrogance not only hurts them but those with whom they love as well.

I humbly beseech You in the name of my humble big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

May the poison of pride never infect your spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah This article and photo @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2021

But Some Went To

Many of the people who were with Mary believed in Jesus when they saw this happen. But some went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. John 11: 45-46 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Even after Jesus rose the dead there were still those who witnessed it that refused to accept Him as the Messiah.

Imagine seeing someone rise out of a coffin and say lets go for a pizza after Jesus commanded them to arise. Would you still doubt that He was indeed the Christ?

Yet, here they were, running like lapdogs squealing on Jesus as if He just did something naughty.

Men and women reject Christ because they refuse to submit to Him. They are afraid of surrendering their life to Him. They fear men more than they do the Son of Man.

Men and women refuse to accept Christ because they are too busy worshipping themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Then, how can we expect those with hard hearts to accept Him no matter how hard we try.

I say, if they will not listen to The Holy Spirit, they most certainly will not listen to us.

So, do not take it personally when others reject you when you try to introduce them to Jesus.

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jesus Yasha ( Lord my Savior – Isaiah 49:26 ) it rips me heart apart when others reject you and it is so hard to walk away from them knowing there is nothing I can say or do to accept You as their Savior. I weep with You in Your Beautiful name. Amen

May you always be wise enough to accept Christ as your Savior Joseph a son of Jehovah

With Grace and Tact

Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before a dispute breaks out. Proverbs 17:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Have you ever watched water gush over a dam?

Imagine standing under its power. It would be extremely stupid and devastating.

In every relationship there are sore points and unresolved issues. When these sore points are brought up it is opening the flood gates of hurt and pain.

Instead of bringing them up whenever you cannot get your own way the most important thing to do is pray for resolution, preferably with a Christian councillor.

Most times the guilty party refuses to go into counselling, most times it is because of pride. One they do not want to admit they were wrong and two they do not want to take responsibility for their actions and three the injured soul does not want to let go of the hurt, they use it like a crutch and they use it to manipulate.

When the other party begins to go on this stupid wheel of destruction, it does cause deep cuts with the words that are said in the heated battle, just inform them that if they wish to continue the discussion we will do so in a Christian councillors office. If you refuse to do so it is an admission of guilt on your behalf. When you are mature enough and ready for reconciliation let me know and we will go to the Christian councillors office. Other wise this discussion is over. Then just walk away.

If someone refuses to go into mediation with you, walk away. They are not interested in resolution but rather in their favorite hobby, fighting. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It works wonders for me.

Prayer: Please Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) please help me to be a wise child of Yours and know how to resolve conflicts with wisdom and grace. When these conflicts involve the spawn of the devil who delight in fighting, manipulation and domineering rather than seeking resolution please bless me with the wise but firm words to inform them I am not playing their perverted little games and until they are ready to behave in a mature manner there is nothing more to be said. I humbly request this in the name of He who quieted the hypocrite Pharisee’s with grace and tact Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the wisdom to know when to sit down and work things out and when it is time to walk away. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Gladly Send the Answer Man.

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. James 1: 5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

When I was a teacher, my children felt comfortable asking me any question that intrigued them. Many times they were astounded that I quite freely informed them that I do not know the answer.

It is funny how many folks are too proud to admit that and try to fake their way through it. They only look stupider and stupider.

Later I would pray and The Holy Spirit would always shed light on the answer. When the answer was given in the next class and the children would ask how I got the answer, I gladly shared with them the not so secret to the answer to all of life’s questions, His name is The Holy Spirit. And, when you respectfully ask Jehovah, He will gladly send the answer man ( well okay, He is not a man but it sounds nice lol ).

“[Christians], at their best, know that often they don’t know. They do not have all the answers. They do not have God in their pocket. We cannot answer every question that any bright boy in the back row might ask. We have only light enough to walk by.” Howard A. Johnson

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light Psalm 27:1 ) that when I am asked a question I do not know the answer to I do the wise thing and respectfully ask You for Your wise insight. Thank you that Your brilliant light of knowledge shines the proper answer for me to reply with. May this be a light to guide the lost unto my Beloved Father in Heaven. I humbly request this in the name of the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Amen

Many you be blessed with the gift of the answer man to answer all of your lifes questions. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why do You Give?   

Lazy people are soon poor Proverbs 10:4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are bombarded with feel good stories on the TV news of giving to help the poor, giving to help those with sicknesses and disease.   

BUT, what is at the heart of the giver?                      

Do they genuinely give because of their concern or do they give to feel good and to be prideful on social media look at me, look at me. Or to brag to friends, family and co-workers? Do they participate to be a part of the crowd or because they are peer pressured to give?        

Yes the Lord loves a cheerful giver BUT, we must first take it to Him in prayer where to give, how much to give and when to give. Then, we will be giving to please the Lord which is the only reason any Christian should give.               

Give joyfully and thankfully to the Lord in abundance as a sacrifice of love and appreciation as He has given in abundance sometimes with great cost (like the cross) to you.  

Give, but give to bring glory to Christ not to self Joseph a son of Jehovah

  Why do you give?

 Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) for blessing me with the tools and the opportunities to help those that are worthy of help. May these opportunities be a conduit to guide the needy into Your gracious loving arms. I praise You in the name of He who gave His blood for my redemption, 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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

Stay Away From

 Have nothing to do with foolish talk and those who want to argue. It can only lead to trouble. 2 Timothy 2:23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version.

WRONG WALK

At some time in everyone’s life we meet those who love to argue. They will argue about anything and everything. Chances are, these same folks will never admit they are wrong.

Avoid them like the plague. Because, that is exactly what they are, a disease to the heart and mind to all they come in contact with.

Unless absolutely necessary do not even say hello to such perverts because doing so opens the door for another argument about nothing that will get you all worked up. Seeing this brings these sicko’s the greatest delight and make you look like a fool.

Not only that but when you lose control you make Jesus and all Christians look bad which, when they know you are a Christian, is their intention.

So, for Christs sake and your sanity stay away from them.

Stay away from mental and spiritual thieves. They will dance the dance of fury with you all the way to Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Metsudhathi (Psalms 18:2 The LORD My High Tower ) bless me to stand guard in Your high tower for the low lifes that enjoy nothing more than to tear down others, myself included.                                                                                                                                              Please bless me to never open the welcoming gates of entering into my social grace because they bring nothing with them but destruction.                                                                                                    I sincerely request this in the name of He who only open the gates to His heart to those who were prepared to participate with Him in a loving relationship, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

So How’s That Going Now Eh?

FURNACE OF HELL

“Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10 New International; Version.

I remember in the sixties and seventies when the mantra was: sex, drugs and rock and roll. Being an infant in Christ I knew this was wrong and refused to go along with the crowd. Yes I was laughed at and bullied a lot, but still wouldn’t back down.

Now over forty years later when I go back home sometimes I run into that crowd. Boy do they look ancient. Their bodies are all broken down from living in the fast lane. They are shells of human beings. They have no family or real friends. They have no real purpose in life, yet stubbornly cling to those destructive dogmas. Many of them are either homeless or living in decrepit buildings.  I look at them and ask them: “So how’s that going now eh, with your sex, drugs and rock and roll?” 

It is not that I am being arrogant towards them but am asking if they have had enough of this life and am willing to come to Christ. They all laugh and are proud of their lifestyle (although I do not know why) and mock me for being a Christian.

No man is free who is a slave to the flesh. Seneca

I on the other hand have slowly over decades  blossomed into a beautiful flower for Christ. Yes my service to Him has been hard, but He was and is with me every step of the way. We have planted a lot of seeds all over the world. Walking with Jesus brings a life filled with divine love, joy and hope.

If someone is trying to manipulate you into doing drugs or having premarital sex don’t walk away from them, RUN.

As surely as the sun rises is the east so too will the vile wickeds lifestyle lead to pain, emptiness, heartache and loneliness. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Take it from an old fart that has both lived it and seen it. You are too precious to Jesus to throw your life away.

”If we (freely) admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins (dismiss our lawlessness) and (continuously) cleanse us from all unrighteousness (everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action)” 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

If you are living that lifestyle now call out to Jesus now. He is always there, He always cares. He loves you.

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him firm in your faith, the God of all grace, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.” 1 Peter 5: 6-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with the wisdom of what is righteous and the strength to walk in its path and to not deviate from it. Thank you for being so gracious as to forgive me when I stray from that path and realize it and repent You eagerly help me to regain my footing upon the Path of Righteousness. I exalt You in the name of He who is the epitimy of righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why do You Give?

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have. 2 Corinthians 8:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are bombarded with feel good stories on the TV news of giving to help the poor, giving to help those with sicknesses and disease.   

BUT, what is at the heart of the giver?                            

Do they genuinely give because of their concern or do they give to feel good and to be prideful on social media look at me, look at me. Or to brag to friends, family and co-workers? Do they participate to be a part of the crowd or because they are peer pressured to give?                         

Yes the Lord loves a cheerful giver BUT, we must first take it to Him in prayer where to give, how much to give and when to give. Then, we will be giving to please the Lord which is the only reason any Christian should give.                             

Give joyfully and thankfully to the Lord in abundance as a sacrifice of love and appreciation as He has given in abundance sometimes with great cost (like the cross) to you.   

Why do you give? 

Just as I have one hand open to receive my Beloved Jehovahs blessings, my other hand is open to sharing them with those in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God supplies) for blessing me with numerous opportunities to share with those in need. I praise You in the name of He who gave His blood for my salvation 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

Are You Ready for Your

 

BURN LIKE THE SUN

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.  For you will be treated as you treat others.The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation 

Yes it is your duty to point out others weaknesses and faults but not the right to be judge and jury. You are to help them in their weakness and ignorance with love and compassion not hard heartedness . 

Do you believe you have the right to be judge and jury over others?

If you hold grudges or attempt to take revenge, your own failure is certain. I know, I used to take great pleasure in tormenting anyone who crossed me. But in the end it always boomeranged on me. 

Do you have a self appointed critic attitude?

Do you want to get back on me with a vengeance?

Soon you will be angry with everyone and be very lonely and bitter. Holding grudges is like swallowing acid to punish others. Ir will soon slowly, painfully destroy you.

Are you self righteous?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

If you are proud and find pleasure when others fail there will come a time when YOU fail and everyone will laugh at you. . You will be humbled.

Do you believe you are self sufficient taking credit for what God has given you?

If you think you are secure in your possessions and abilities, your situation is sure to change.

At one time in my life I had a good job, lots of money and lived the good life. Without warning the factory closed, my money depleted so bad I had to walk knee deep in snow to collect pop bottles and beer bottles to get enough money to buy a loaf of bread and jar of honey. That is what I lived off of for a week. Thankfully that situation only lasted for a few months I could not pay the hydro so being cut off there was no heat in the house. It was warmer outside than in that house. It was the lowest point of my life and still is branded in my mind.

So do not be egotistic and think you are so high and mighty, that you are secure in your riches. You WILL be brought down in the blink of an eye.

Prayer: Jehovah our gracious God. Thank you for the numerous blessing You have so freely blessed us with.                                      Please guard my heart that it does not become arrogant and take credit for the blessing You gracefully give us.                                   Please bless me not to be judge and jury but rather someone who comes along side the ignorant and help them eliminate their wrong manner of behavior.                                                                   In the name of the One who never judged the adulteress woman Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

The manner in which you judge others, Jesus shall judge you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

Stop Before A

do not allow them to control you

If you value a relationship, you must be willing to go into counseling. If it is not important enough for you to go into counseling, then this relationship is over. This prevents a lot of unnecessary trouble in our lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with the knowledge to know when to shut up, when to pray for words of healing and reconciliation and when to seek out good Christian councilors when in a dispute. I sincerely request this in the name of He who knew when to speak and the right words to say Jesus Christ. Amen
