Smack Them Down Hard

Please rescue me Jehovah Maginnenu (Psalms 89:18 The LORD Our Defence) from worrying over the trouble makers in my life and the dishonest ones that are making my life miserable.

I know You are my loving, caring Father who protects His children from those with wicked intentions.

I know that even though it seems as if they are getting away with it and indeed, even prospering from it, Your righteous hand shall smack them down hard with Your Divine justice.

The wicked cannot scam You, plea bargain with You or con You. I know that Your justice will be done in Your way, in Your time ( but can You hurry it up a bit please).

Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

the devious reward

Thank you for Your true justice in the name of the Supreme Judge 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

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.

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.

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.

Flows From It.

 Above all else, guard your heart,  for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 Holy Bible, New International Version                                                                

 Your input determines your output.                                                   

In other words what you put into your mind determines how you behave. This affects your relationships, your mental and physical health.

The best input comes from the Bible and holy communion with Jehovah. They guard your heart and mind on righteousness while not imputing greed, hatred nor revenge which pollutes the heart and mind.

That is why it is important to have a thank you prayer every morning. It begins your day with a joyful disposition. The more grateful we are to Jehovah for all His blessings through out the day the less we are likely to become Negative Nellies.

It is also important to listen to Christian music instead of worldly music. Christian music points to a loving , grateful relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit while the worlds music is all about greed, lust and revenge. The first one helps in living a joyful, peace filled life, the second one leads to unfulfillment, anger and depression.

The same holds true for movies and TV series. What goes in must come out. With Christ it is the sweetness of love, joy, peace and Divine purpose. With the world it is the stench of filthy soul destroying selfishness.

Choose wisely if you want a good day, good life and a great eternal retirement home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with a smorgasbord of Heavenly delights to feast upon every day. I need these to continue to grow more mature into the Heavenly child You know I am capable of being. I thank you in the name of He whose companionship is the sweetest of delights Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?

EXAMINE YOURSELF
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4   Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                            

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumours, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying. All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offences and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

Destroying Your Heart.

A happy heart is good medicine and a joyful mind causes healing, But a broken spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Instead of being broken hearted when someone does me wrong I call Jehovah to heal me. He always blessed me with peace and love. It does not matter what another has done to me or said about me when I call upon my Beloved He always answers me with love and peace.

Yes they are forgiven because that is part of the healing process.

It is a well known medical fact that those that hold on to grudges and hurt have it causing them medical problems like ulcers and heart problems.

“Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior. Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart.”Unknown

Then, yes I have the right, which I exercise, to pass judgment upon the perpetrators. Not because I want revenge but in the process of the punishment they will repent and we can be reconciled both in our relationship and in theirs with Jehovah.

If they refuse to repent the Lords hand will be heavy upon them until they reach the point of no return and are destroyed because of their arrogance and meanness of heart.

Therefore [the crushing weight of] his disaster will come suddenly upon him; Instantly he will be broken, and there will be no healing or remedy [because he has no heart for God]. Proverbs 6:15 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Please YAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal me from any anger, bitterness or hatred towards any who have wronged me so that I may continue to grow in our Divinely loving relationship. For those who have unfairly wronged me place Your hand heavy upon them and let them know this is because they need to reconcile and repent. I humbly ask this in the name of He who forgave those who nailed Him to a cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Let a Man Meet A.

Let a man meet a[ferocious] bear robbed of her cubs Rather than the [angry, narcissistic] fool in his folly. Proverbs 17:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                           

Folly is described as: the state or quality of being foolish; lack of understanding or sense, a foolish action, practice and a costly and foolish undertaking. Another word for foolish is stupid.

A narcissist is described as  tending to derive gratification from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes.

Speaking from personal experience a narcissist does not love anybody or anything as much as they love themselves. They are always bragging about themselves and thrive on being the constant center of attention. They are very shallow and easily offended. When offended they become very cruel and constantly imagine the wicked manner in which the offender will pay with shame and humiliation. They take it to the extreme.

Beware of them.

Yes they can be dangerous, although most times they are not.

They have no sympathy for their victims and delight in watching them suffer. Whenever I encounter one and they share with me their wicked schemes I merely point out to them the folly of it in the consequences they will suffer far outweigh the satisfaction they will receive and I will have no part of it.

If I am the one they intend upon inflicting with their foolish perverted revenge I explain to them  with confidence and strength that there is a God in Heaven and He passes sentence that the wicked shall be punished seven times seven for their wickedness.

It shocks them. It is a coin toss how they will react.

Sometimes they will stay away in fear and sometimes they foolishly pursue their evil schemes. Yes sometimes they succeed but in the end it costs them far more than they gain when they suffer Jehovahs harsh mighty hand of justice.

Narcissist’s pretend to be strong but really are weak, stand up to them or they will bully you.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to be by your side and no narcissist can stand up to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi  (The Lord is my Refuge) for blessing me with the refuge of Your words and guidance to deal properly with all the narcissist’s that enter my life. I exalt You in the name of He who dealt harshest of all with these plagues upon society Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Grace is When

 Growing in grace they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age. Psalm 92:14 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Grace is not something we are born with. When someone does us wrong the natural inclination is to seek revenge.

It is only when we surrender all to Christ that He will send the Holy Spirit to burn that wicked trait out of you to be replaced by a heart of grace.

Now just as when you plant seeds today you do not harvest them tomorrow neither are you blessed with unlimited grace from the beginning. It take time to mature just like flowers.

For me, when someone crossed me I was very vengeful and cruel in getting my pound of flesh. It took an experience where the Lord told me to stand there and take the abuse without retribution. That was hard but through the power of the Holy Spirit successful.

It has taken me another eleven years and I am still working on it.

The Holy Spirit has brought me a long way since then and there is still a ways to go.

Oh, and by the way, do not think the wicked ones escaped punishment. Jehovah brought me to a place and told me to stand and watch.

I witnessed His justice and it was far more severe than anything I could have done.

There was no joy in my heart at seeing His justice handed out but fear. Fear, because, of what would happen to me if I angered the Lord.

Now sometimes we have to understand the others situation.

So perhaps a woman was abused by her dad and or brothers and she is cold towards you at school or work. You do not know why unless you are patient, gentle and loving with her or find a Christian woman to talk with her. Maybe it is a cultural thing or maybe there is problems in the others life. We need to be patient and with prayer ask Jehovah to open our eyes to the others situation and the proper course to take.

“Grace is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.” Unknown

Prayer: Please my Beloved Heavenly father Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always emulate You and expand a loving heart in my life so as to bring the lost unto You and so as to please You. I sincerely request this in the name of the most loving best friend who has shown me His love all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Will be Held Accountable for That.

CANNOT OUTRUN

 An arrogant and greedy man stirs up strife. Proverbs 28:25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To cause strife is to cause fights.

Watching a documentary about what caused World War 1 there were two blatant conclusions.

One the one king wanted his son to cause a war with a weaker one so that he could overthrow that government. That is greed. He never imagined the consequences of his actions. Your greed will cause untold innocent ones to suffer. You will be held accountable for that.

The other reason was hate. The man that executed the prince had a hatred for his nationality that goes back centuries. He never dreamed that his one shot would cause landscapes across Europe to be soaked with innocent blood. 

A heart filled with love builds others up. A heart filled with hate only destroys. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Your hate will cause many innocent to suffer. You will be held accountable for that. Your hatred will not only destroy you but many innocent ones. For that you will suffer worse than the one you inflicted your hate upon by Divine judgment. 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) fill me daily with Your Divine love so that hatred has no place to be nurtured in my heart. I dread the damage it will do.

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