A closer walk with our beloved friend.


He Will Give so You Can Give.

I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. Genesis 12:2 New International Version.

What does God bless us with?

God gives us a loving heart so that we will bless others with love. The more you give your love to others, the more God will give His love to you.

Talk about a win, win situation ey?

Now what does it mean that your name will be great?

It does not mean you will be a superstar here on earth.

It means that your name will be great in heaven.

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38 New International Version.

Just as Jesus has shared His love with us, so too are we to share our love with others. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the wonderful blessing of Your treasured love. Thank you my beloved for the opportunities to share this divine love with others. I give thanks for this cherished gift in the name of He who loved us first Jesus Christ. Amen

Do You Use Them as a Punching Bag?

People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power.2 Timothy 3:2-5 New International Version

Think of a boxer practising using a punching bag.

Is that the way you behave to those in your church?

Instead of fists in a punching bag you use your words to hit at their heart. You look for anything to criticize someone. Their hair is too long, they have a scruffy beard, their talk is stupid, they are slow thinker, and the list does go on and on.

If someone is a new member of your church and you behave in this manner do you think they will want to return to your church?

That is exactly what has happened to myself and others I have talked about it with all too frequently. What if someone brought unbeliever to church who was interested in becoming a Christian, do you think your condemning behavior will encourage them to want to become a Christian?

I have felt ashamed when I brought an unbeliever that was interested in learning about Jesus to church and they saw this behavior. They looked at me and said: “I thought you Christians were supposed to be loving? If that is what you call loving I am not interested. They would not listen after that.

What do you think Jesus will say to these wolves on judgment day?

How do you think Jesus feels when he sees and hears this disgusting behavior?

Jesus Christ is the judge, not you.

You say you do not do this. Good for you.
However, when you see one of these wolves attack someone in your church do you just stand by and say nothing?

Doesn’t that encourage their destructive behavior?

It is your duty to confront them and demand they stop this abusive behavior or do not come to this church. It is the duty of every church member to stand strong on this. Oh you will lose a few members but that is getting rid of the weeds that choke the righteous plants. Then people will feel comfortable in your church and your church will be full.

When I was a teacher in another country sometimes there would be naughty children in class that refused to behave. They were given warnings. If they refused to behave I would physically throw them out of class. My classes were always full and many students were turned away because the class was full. Both the children and parents loved and respected me.

You want to see a Christ centered Church?

Then get rid of the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Prayer: Please Jehovah bless me with the strength and wisdom of Nathan when he confronted David to confront these wolves when they attack Your precious lambs. I ask in Your son Jesus Christ’s mighty name. Amen. May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

That is Why I

What or whom we worship determines our behavior.

That is why I worship Jesus, because of His love for me I worship Him.

Because of this I live a righteous life.

Because of this stress is replaced with peace.

Selfishness and bitterness is replaced with love. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah


Wisdom from a Senior

After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children and my friends, I have now started loving myself.

I have realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.

I have stopped bargaining with vegetable & fruit vendors. A few pennies more is not going to break me, but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.

I leave my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is toiling much harder for a living than I am.

I stopped telling the elderly that they’ve already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down memory lane & relive their past.

I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.

I give compliments freely & generously. Compliments are a mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me. And a small tip for the recipient of a compliment, never, NEVER turn it down, just say “Thank You.”

I have learned not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances.

I walk away from people who don’t value me. They might not know my worth, but I do.

I remain cool when someone plays dirty to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat & neither am I in any race.

I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human.

I have learned that it’s better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof, whereas with relationships, I will never be alone.

I have learned to live each day as if it’s the last. After all, it might be the last.

I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself. Happiness is a choice. You can be happy at any time, just choose to be!


If There is No

If there is no repentance, there is no forgiveness.

Jesus did not tell the woman caught in adultery to keep on going out on one night stands but rather to go out and sin no more.

When someone sins against us we are to forgive them but if they refuse to repent we are to avoid them because they are not sorry for what they did, and they will continue to do it.

Not only that, but the abuse will just get worse.

If we must be in a relationship with them like at work, the relationship shall be formal. Do not talk with them unless you have to and make your answers just yes or no. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Is Not Merely

Prayer is not merely prattle; it is warfare. Alan Redpath


Is a Good Idea Because

To turn the other cheek means if someone insults us not to take it personally ( which is a good idea because this is the first means of a narcissist attacking us. Then instead of getting into a fight they stand there looking stupid ). Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

It Feeds Upon

“Perhaps we make too much of what is wrong and too little of what is right. The trouble with gloom is that it feeds upon itself and depression causes more depression.” Queen Elizabeth II


Not to be A

Meek means to keep yourself under control not to be a door mat. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Determined to Struggle for A

When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat; instead, they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future.” Queen Elizabeth II
