The Tragedy of Life

VOICE OF GOD

For I know that the Lord is great Psalm 135:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we walk with Christ, the more we get to know Him (although, we will never really get to know everything about Him because there is just too much of Him to ever have the time to learn it all).

The more we get to know Him the greater He becomes to us. This greatness it exhibited in His love, power, wisdom and provision of which there is none to compare. \

“The tragedy of life and of the world is not that men do not know God; the tragedy is that, knowing Him, they still insist on going their own way.” William Barclay  

Jehovah reveals Himself to us in many wonderful and awesome ways every day. Because of this revelation we should be drawn towards Him and the deeper the desire to obey Him. After all, it is because He loves us that He wants the best for us.

Therefore, should we not follow the advice of the all knowing God to direct every aspect of our lives?

The reason fools reject Jehovah is because of arrogance and greed. The advice Jehovah blesses them with does not suit what they selfishly desire in their lives so they foolishly reject it and arrogantly follow their own thoughts (which are influenced by the world around then and he who influences the world is satan) to attain what they greedily want. The end result of this pathetic attempt is a worthless life with a huge hole in their heart because that can only be filled with Jehovahs love (which He only blesses those who belong to Him with).

There is no such thing as atheist, there is only intentional idiots. Joseph a son of Jehovah      

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (Revealer of Mysteries) for all of the amazing ways in which You reveal the mystery of You to me. It is truly awesome the manner in which You reveal Your majesty, wisdom, love and compassion. I exalt You in the name of Your awesome Son Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Not the Gospel You Believe

Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is. His good pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many that believe they can do what they want and it is okay. No matter how much scripture you share with them that their ways are wrong they refuse to listen.

The worst offenders of course are the fools that believe that once they accept Christ as their savior they can do what ever they like and they are still saved.

The next biggest group of fools are those that believe because Jesus is love everyone will be given a free pass to Heaven no matter how they lived their lives here on earth.

Boy are they in for a shock on judgement day.

“If you believe what you like in the gospel, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for teaching me the truth that is in the Bible.

Thank you for blessing me with helping me incorporate that in my life when it is difficult to do so, so that I may continue to mature in our Heavenly loving relationship.

I praise You in the name of He who lives the most righteous life of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

So They Could.

                          

So the Jews surrounded Him and began saying to Him, “How long are You going to keep us in suspense? If You are [really] the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), tell us so plainly and openly.” John 10:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Jewish leaders knew who Jesus was by the words He spoke and what He had done. They were looking to entrap Him so they could crucify Him. The were so wrapped up in religion that they knowingly rejected God. They refused to listen to Him because they are not His sheep.

Too often there are those in power in churches that believe they can do whatever they want with complete impunity. When you try to discuss it with them they become very offensive and try to use Bible verses to entrap you, to shame you and enslave you to their doctrine not Christ’s. These wicked creatures are doing satans work, not Christ’s. They will pay a heavy penalty for it on judgement day. They do more to drive folks away from Christ than towards Him.

I suffered because of these wicked souls when one of my parents was a member of a certain cult in my teenage years. Those that are still alive today are not powerful but weak pitiful souls. Those that have passed on died alone, weak and in a pitiful state.

I have unfortunately met many that can quote from the Bible but refuse to live by it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Magen (The Lord my Shield) for blessing me with Your  impenetrable shield to protect me from the vile attacks of the upsurgers of Your Divine word and for encouraging me when they do occasionally penetrate to my heart in a moment of weakness.

I glorify Thee in the name of He whose shield was too powerful for any of His foes to penetrate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world 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

They are Calling Jehovah Wicked.

Differing weights [one for buying and another for selling] and differing measures, Both of them are detestable and offensive to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable and offensive [to the Lord]. How much more [unacceptable and insulting can it be] when he brings it with evil intention? Proverbs 21:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Detestable means arousing or meriting intense dislike in the dictionary.

So many times I hear preachers and others say that the thing we hate the most is the thing in which we ourselves do as well.

In the Christian perspective they are dead wrong.

As you can see from these verses Jehovah hates these things so if , by their reasoning, Jehovah hates these things that must mean He practices these things. That means He is not Holy and prefect.

The more in love you are with another the more your disposition becomes like them and you desire to emulate them. Watch a child try to emulate their father or mother for proof.

It only stands to reason then that what Jehovah hates we hate.

I hate liars, the proud, the thieves, the instigators and mean spirited.

That does not mean I want to kill them, indeed it brings great sorrow to see their lifestyle because it only brings them depression, loneliness, sorrow and pain but that does not mean I excuse it nor tolerate it. When I try to teach them about Christ and they turn their back on Him (it is Christ they are rejecting not you) that is an insult and I turn my back on them. It is a sad thing to do but it is necessary because they are a waste of time and energy.

I pray Jehovah leads me to receptive ones and move on.

These six things the Lord hates; Indeed, seven are repulsive to Him: A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that creates wicked plans, Feet that run swiftly to evil, A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths], And one who spreads discord (rumours) among brothers. Proverbs 6:16-19The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is also a misconception that Jehovah hates the sin but loves the sinner.

That is a flat out lie.

He hates the wicked that refuse to follow His guidance and openly rebel against Him with a holy hate.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me to hate what You hate in a holy manner so as to not allow what is wicked to be tolerated nor welcome in my life. I sincerely request this in the name of the Holy of Holies whom shall judge and reward the wicked according to their evil deeds Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I would Not Look at You.

 Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel]. 2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes it is because of the righteous that the wicked are not punished (at that moment) but they will be punished in Jehovah’s way and in Him time.

Notice that it is because the king of Judah was an obedient servant of Jehovah that the Holy man spoke.

Many times the wicked will receive guidance from the righteous because of their association with a righteous man or woman. They come for advice because of what they want to hear not what they need to hear. When what they need to hear is told to them they hate the messenger and will stubbornly refuse the Godly advice given unto them. The whole meeting is a waste of their time and the man or woman of Gods time. Because they refuse to listen to the Godly advice they meet their doom.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with softly speaking to my heart not to waste my times with the wicked ones who blatantly reject you and walk in the path of wickedness. It saves me so much frustration and sorrow. I extol Thee in the name of He who walks away from those who refuse to open the door of their hearts when He comes a knocking Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Neither Should We.

 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In this situation Samuel saw big strong young men but Jehovah saw what was in their hearts. Samuel would never have chosen the runt of the litter (David).

Later on when a loud mouth (Goliath) challenged them and mocked their God (Jehovah) those big strong boys cowered for forty days.

When the runt of the litter (David) saw and heard it, he immediately took action , slew the big mouth and brought glory to Jehovah. He had no sword nor shield but an intense belief in Jehovahs providence.

All the while his wimpy (You know, the big strong brothers) tried to dissuade him and even mocked him.

That is, until David triumphed over the other big mouth ( Goliath ).

Read it for yourself in 1 Samuel 17: 1-50

Jehovah does not look at the candy bar wrapper (the outside or our bodies) and neither should we. Rather He looks at the inside (our spirits) and so should we. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not be pressured by the outward appearance of anyone whether it be physical beauty, material wealth or intellect but rather be drawn to those whose hearts are joined together with Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees for blessing me with revealing what truly lies within the hearts of folks so as to not be deceived by the scammers but to see the beauty of the lovely ones. Please continue this blessing so as I may be rewarded with loving relationships and protected from vile ones. I sincerely request this in the name of He who saw what was in His disciples hearts even when everyone else just saw them as smelling ignorant fishermen Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Fools Rejection.

ARROGANCE

As you come to him, the living Stone rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him 1 Peter 2:4 New International Version

fool a person who lacks good sense or judgment : a stupid or silly person Merriam Webster dictionary

 

Only a fool would reject an amazing life with Christ so do not be surprised when non-Christians reject you.

 

But do not allow it to upset you when they mock you, reject you and harass you. Just remember that you are precious to Jehovah.

And do not forget, as they rejected Jesus so too will they reject you.

The only thing you can do is sow the seed and then walk away.

They Holy Spirit will convict them.

If they refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit, they will not listen to you either.

A skeptic is a person who, when he sees the handwriting on the wall, claims it is a forgery. Morris Bender

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) bless me with Your divine peace when others reject my invitation to become a member of Your holy family and please bless them with peace that can only be gained by becoming a member of Your divine family. I earnestly request this in the name of the prince of peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

True Christianity is Not.

A gentle loving caress

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;  persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 New King James Version

True Christianity is not feel good but is suffering, being rejected and despised. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

There are some liars today passing off as the voice of God telling people God is a magic genie whose only purpose is to make us happy like we were spoiled brats.

Nothing is further from the truth.

To walk the Christian walk is to be in a constant battle.

You will suffer many things unfairly, you will be rejected by friends and family and even those in your own church, you will be despised at work, school, church and in your family.

Do not despair though because these trials and tribulations will bring you into a closer loving relationship with Christ and that is worth more than all your trials and tribulations combined.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with the most amazing love that flourishes through the trials and tribulations the evil one sends my way. I adore you in the name of He who You strengthened and supported while going through His trials and tribulations as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                             

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