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

  Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before a dispute breaks out. Proverbs 17:14 Holy Bible, 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 counseling, 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 councilors 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 councilors office. Other wise this discussion is over. Then just walk away. It works wonders for me.

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

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

I’ve Heard It Said

LOVE IS

Respect everyone, and love the family of believers.1 Peter 2:17 Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is great relationship advice.

I’ve heard it said don’t go to bed while hanging on to sorrow, you may not have the chance to laugh with those you love tomorrow.

You may not mean the words you speak when anger takes its toll, you may regret your actions once you’ve lost your self control.

When you’ve lost your temper and you’ve said some hurtful things, think about the heartache that your actions sometime bring.

You’ll never get those moments back, such precious time to waste, and all because of things you said in anger and in haste.

So if you’re loving someone and your pride has settled in, you may not ever have the chance to say to them again…

“I love you and I miss you and although we don’t agree, I’ll try to see your point of view, please do the same for me.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4) – GOD My Helper for blessing me the Holy Spirit to help me through difficult situations with those around me with grace, wisdom and respect. I greatly exalt You in the name of He who was always gracious with those around Him, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

All in One Word.

Today our world is plagued by rage and depression. It oozes into every cranny of society, rich and poor, man and woman, of every colour and nationality.

Everyone is asking why.

It can all be summed up in one word: unforgiveness.

When we refuse to forgive someone for an offense they have committed upon us it seeps into every aspect of our life. That is why there is so much road rage, why there is so much drug abuse, why there is so much failed marriage, why there is so much in fighting in families.

Why do folks refuse to forgive?

Because, we are greedy.

Instead of leaving justice in Jehovahs capable hands we demand the right for blood by our own.

Unforgiveness is a form of selfishness. We demand our pound of flesh.Joseph a son of Jehovah

The cure for this selfishness can only be found by laying our grievances at the feet of Jesus and trusting Him to deliver true justice in His time and in His way.

Speaking from personal experience, Christs justice is far more terrible than anything we could administer to the unrepentant.

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

In the mean time, we are to pray for the offended to come to repentance for their own good.

If possible stay away from abusive folks and if you have to deal with them do so graciously but firmly. Let them know their attitude and behavior is not welcome nor tolerated. Therefore, the relationship shall remain formal, but, if they repent the door of friendship shall be opened

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohe Tishuathi (Psalms 18:46&51:14) – GOD of My selfishnessSalvation bless me to always have a forgiving heart towards others as You do towards me. Please bless me with the wisdom, strength and provision to walk away from habitual  abusers and to pray for them to come unto repentance as well. I humbly request this in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible 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

Be sure of this

THE FIRES OF HELL

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is the best revenge you do not want to see.

Speaking from personal experience, yes I have desired revenge upon more than a few folks in my time.

Many times I got it on my own until the Lord convicted me that is a strong no, no for a Christian. We are to trust that Jehovah is a God of Justice and He will give vengeance in His way, in His time. Every time.

He has allowed me to witness His vengeance it has brought about the same three reactions.

One: a feeling of terror. Terror that that could be me one day because we all offend Jehovah because we are all sinners.

Repent or face the consequences. There is no plea bargaining or parole with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Two: a feeling of overwhelming joy that the blood of my Saviour along with my repentance (unrepentant sin is forgiven sin Joseph a son of Jehovah) exonerates me from receiving what the Law says (Jehovahs court, not mans) will be my punishment.

Three: Deep heart cutting agony at seeing the wicked suffer because of receiving Divine punishment.

You cannot love and rejoice at seeing Jehovahs justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

And, if you think it causes agony for us to witness it, imagine how it makes Jehovah feel. 

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hashopet (Judges 11:27) The LORD the Judge for the amazing blessing of forgiveness when I sincerely repent. Thank you that there is inescapable justice for the wicked when they refuse to repent. I extol You in Your fair name. Amen

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

Compare Yourself To.

NO CONCIET

 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is pride—but the worship of self?

Why do you think folks have themselves covered with tattoos but as an act of self worship?

Why do you think social media is so reverent in society today except as a means to puff up ones own importance? The list goes on and on.

Compare yourself to Christ and then see how good you are. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why are folks so reluctant to give their time and labour for the good of others, and the glory of God? Because they want it for ease, and the enjoyment of self! As well, they want it for bragging rights of look at all the toys I have.

Imagine all the good we could accomplish if everyone gave one tenth of their earnings to a worthy cause. What good are your toys compared to the riches of Heaven stored up for the dutiful good stewards?

When we are Christians we put Christ first, others second and self last. It is hard and most times we receive little recognition from others for our efforts, even those we help. 

A warning for those considering becoming the Heavenly Kings servants, when you become a servant unto Christ expect a lot of suffering. Indeed, Christ spoke more of suffering than He did pleasures of being His servants.

Being a servant unto Christ is the hardest endeavor you shall ever participate in but it has eternal Heavenly rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever)for the wonderful privilege of being a humble servant to such a magnificent Heavenly King. I give all praise in Your awesome name. 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

Being Confident In

                                          

I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return]. Philippians 1:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all have pride when we are walking in the world. It takes time to destroy it, to be replaced by humbleness and gratitude.

We are humble because we do not need to impress anybody.

We are confident in who we are in Christ.

Our hearts are filled with gratitude because of the victories Christ has accomplished in our lives and for the help He amply, daily provides us in living so as to glorify Him in our words and deeds instead of glorifying ourselves.

Pride is fear. Fear of what others think of you instead of being confident in whom you are in Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Glory, glory, glory excelias unto You and You alone Jehovah Abba (God our Father)for blessing me with the supreme privilege of being Your loving child.

I am not concerned with the superficial praise of others because it cannot compare with the amazing confidence there is in being Your holy child.

I glorify You in the name of my excellent 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
