Ask Them If

 

WISDOM LASTS AND ETERNITYHe who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13:24, New International Version

Now we need to understand this.

When children are young, they will push the limits to see what they can get away with.

First they must be warned such behavior is bad and explain why it is bad. Please do not just tell them it is bad or they must do it because you said so. Take the time to explain why they must do this or must not do that. It is even better when you share with them your personal experience so it makes it more real to them.

If they continue to push the envelope they must receive corporal punishment. One good swat will suffice most of the time or taking away a privilege like no mobile phone for a week.

Then sent to a quiet place to contemplate what they have done for about ten minutes. .

After that go sit down beside them. Hug them. Tell them you love them and it really hurt you to do what you had to do. Ask them if they understand. Usually they do. If they do, not try another way to explain it to them.

This is the method my mom used with us kids and I have used with children many times (being a teacher they were not my students but I loved them as if they were my own children). I speak from experience when I say they will love and respect you for it.

After that when they are naughty all I have to do is raise my voice in a firm controlled way to tell them to stop it and they instantly stop. Not out of fear, but rather out of love.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Please Jehovah Abba (God my Father) bless me to emulate You in the same manner in which You wisely teach Your children. I deeply desire them to be a blessing upon this earth not a curse. I humbly request this in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Boy is That Hard to Do

BE STILL

 Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. Psalm 27:14 New Living Translation Bible

Boy is that hard to do, wait patiently.

There has been a few times when while being unfairly severely abused the Lord told me to wait patiently and things will swing my way while the perpetrators will receive just punishment from the Lord. It took about three years of being brave and courageous and not giving up before what the Lord revealed to me came to pass. It is heartening to see the wait was worth it but heartache to watch the perpetrators receive their just rewards (and they still are).

I always thought myself to be a patient man, until becoming a Christian. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Boy is that ever rewarding to do, wait patiently.

There has been a few times when it just did not seem worth it to continue on in the path the Lord had requested that be taken. Having faith is what carried me through. Then it seemed as if things were happening rapid fire as the blessing multiplied one after another as had been promised.

“If we wait upon God, there is no danger. If we rush on, He must let us see the consequences of it.” — John Darby

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) that You are always faithful to do as You promise to do in Your time and in Your way. I thank you for teaching me to be patient because Your timing and Your mannerism is far superior to mine. I laud You in the name of He who made the supreme sacrifice for me at just the right time in just the right manner Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

The Same Should be True for Us.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Don’t be so angry with us, Lord.  Isaiah 64:9 New Living Translation

This suggests that Jehovah controls His temper but look out when His patience is exhausted.

The same should be true for us.

Yes we are to control our temper but there must be a price to pay when someone exhausts our patience (many times they do it intentionally because they like to watch someone blow up and then stand back and laugh. All the while acting innocent.).

We as Christians are not to extract revenge. However, we do have a big daddy in Heaven above whom we can and should call upon to extract the proper punishment towards the offenders to either bring them to repentance or to warn them to stop because next time will be so much worse.

And, from my experience when the Lord brings the hammer down, it is very unpleasant to the offender.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense. The God of vengeance) for blessing me with confidence in Your true justice being executed upon those who do me wrong without just cause. Thank You my Love that when we repent before Your patience is exhausted You are a forgiving God. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made my forgiveness possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Are Opportunities to Prove

gods rescue

 So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment. 2 Peter 2:9 New Living Translation

When I was a baby Christian I used to cry out to my Beloved:” Father, why are these terrible things happening to me?” I used to think I was being punished because of some wrong committed. Sometimes they were but most were not.

Now, a more mature Christian (Not fully mature mind you, that will only happen in Heaven) I ask: “ Lord what are You trying to teach me in these difficult circumstances (and yes, there is always a lesson to learn)? Or ‘Lord, if I have offended You please reveal to me that which displeases You and how to correct the situation.” However one thing that is always abundantly clear and for which there is great gratitude is the knowledge that He is walking through them with me and will deliver me in the appropriate time and in the appropriate manner.

“Trials are not enemies of faith but are opportunities to prove God’s faithfulness.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) that no matter the trouble that comes my way, You will walk through them with me. Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (God the Revealer of Mysteries ) for revealing so much to me through these experiences. I praise You in the name of He who suffered so much for me out of Divine love Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

We Must Not Look to The

HEAVEN BOUND

And you will know the truth [regarding salvation], and the truth will set you free[from the penalty of sin].” John 8:32 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are many sly voices calling out for your soul.

But there is only one that Leads to salvation and Heaven where we will be blessed with an eternal loving communion with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

I find the most wicked ones are the ones that pretend to belong to Christ while obeying satan. These churches are easy to recognize because their doctrines are lies.

For example and church that accepts homosexuals and preaches that they will go to Heaven is satanic. Any church that preaches that baby murder (abortion) is acceptable is preaching lies from satan (unless the woman has been raped or if her life is in danger due to child birth as is stated in the MISHNAH see https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/529077/jewish/What-Is-the-Jewish-View-on-Abortion.htm ).

Any church that preaches that it is okay to do what ever you desire and you will still be welcomed into Heaven is satanic preaching.

The churches that preach that salvation can only come from Christ and not by works. That once saved we become free will servants of Christ and our motto is not my will but Christ’s will be done and those that preach that above all Jehovah deeply desires that our greatest desire is an obedient loving relationship with Him. THAT is a Christian church.

As well the Bible is the book of Truth so always go there and it will free you from the santanic lies and cause you to concentrate on your eternal fellowship with the Divine Trinity.

We must not look to the here and now but into eternity where only truth dwells, both in Heaven and in Hell.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with revealing the truth to me. Please bless me with wisdom, grace and strength to always share the truth with those living in lies so as to bring them to Your Heavenly home instead of the terrible Hell that awaits them. I humbly request this in the name of He who always spoke the truth no matter who it offended Jesus Christ. Amen.

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