Are Very Arrogant

A righteous man hates lies, But a wicked man is loathsome, and he acts shamefully. Proverbs 13:5 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Have you ever wondered why you hate it when you hear someone tell lies (even if they seem harmless) ?

It is because we imitate that which we love.

So, just as Jehovah hates lies and liars so too do we.

Loathsome is described as causing feelings of loathing; disgusting; revolting; repulsive.

Personally speaking, I find liars and braggarts to be particularly disgusting and repulsive. I have to run from them before I either explode or feel strongly sick to my stomach.

I believe that is exactly how Jehovah feels and a quick reference in your Bible will prove it. When they are a family member, it makes me want to cry seeing them walk the path of ultimate destruction and knowing they are too full of themselves to listen.

Again, I know that, that is exactly how Jehovah feels from reading and understanding the Bible.

Liars are very arrogant and believe they are gods in their own eyes. Many times they look down on others and feel no shame in lying to get what they desire at someones elses expense.

Eventually, Jehovah has enough of them and then allows them to reap what they sow. It is a terrible thing to witness and rips the heart apart even though we know they deserve what they are getting.

Stay away from them, they only bring heartache, pain and disaster. They are truly the devils children.

Hell is full of the arrogant. Heaven is full of the humble. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) to teach me Your irrefutable truth. Thank you for opening my eyes to the destructive life of liars and to avoid interacting with them less they entice me to follow their footsteps to Hell. I thank you in the name of He who not only spoke nothing but the truth but lived it as well, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the God of truth protect you from the lying vipers that slither through out this land and guide you to not become one of them.

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

The Only Way To

NO DOMINION Discretion is a life giving fountain to those who possess it, but discipline is wasted on fools. Proverbs 16:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The only way to possess discretion is by daily requesting it from He whose discretion is the best there is, that is Jehovah. We need to moment by moment depend upon the Holy Spirits discretion in every nick and cranny of our life.

Otherwise, we are easy prey for the scammers and con artists out there. The worst one of them all of course is satan. He will con you all the way into Hell if you let him. I have learned this the hard way but I pray the lesson is never forgotten.

Depend upon the Holy Spirit for success. Anything else, is a recipe for failure and disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1) – The LORD My Light for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to shine His brilliant light of wisdom to guide me to righteous discretion. It has prevented a lot of grief in my life and blessed me with abundant peace.                                                                             I sing my praise unto You in the name of the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are You Ready For ?

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2 New International Version

 How do you behave towards others?

How do you treat your neighbors, friends, family, classmates, co-workers, and people on the bus or anywhere we travel throughout our day?

When we conduct ourselves in a humble, gentle manner our lives will be much less stressful and we find ourselves a lot more happier.

Let’s dissect each of these words and then perhaps and then you may see how to incorporate them into your daily living.

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive

Do you walk around with a chip on your shoulder?

Do you look down on people who are poorer than you, come from a different country and culture?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

Are you ready for what comes around?

Gentle: free from harshness, sternness, or violence

Do you speak cruel spiteful words to others to get your jollies watching them in their hurt feelings?

Be careful, if this behavior leads to some else to commit suicide in Gods eyes you are just as guilty of murder as if you put a bullet in their head.

Are you too stern with your wives, husbands, children or subordinates?

Are you a bully?

Read about those who speak cruel words, the same applies to you.

Patient: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint, not hasty or impetuous ,steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity

Do you have patience waiting in the grocery line, or when dealing with anothers short comings or difficulty in understanding?

 

Do you stand beside a family member, friend, classmate or co-worker when dealing with difficult situations? Do you bear with another when they unintentionally do or say annoying things?

All of the above definitions come from Webster’s dictionary. The comments are my own.

Why not make a list of how you can improve yourselves with this helpful little guide. Then start working on improving yourselves one at a time.

As an added bonus you will find yourselves much less stressed and happier.

Oh and as another added bonus remember this: What goes around comes around. So how you behave towards others will be done back to you.

How do you want people to treat you?

“Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. Treat them gently” (Romans 14:1 The Message Bible).

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 The Holy Bible, The Living Translation

Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8,9 The Holy Bible, The King James Version

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up” (James 4:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation).

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Prayer: Jehovah Hosanna ( God our maker) make my every heart beat with a deep longing desire to always walk righteously in Your divine eyes and be open to expanding my ability to become more Christ like every day. In the name of our loving King Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Which Way Have You Heard?

voice of god

 Jehovah speaks to us in six different ways.

One is by the Word. When we read the Bible every day Jesus will speak to us through its divine Word. For gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight; for receiving instruction in prudent behavior, doing what is right and just and fair. Proverbs 1:1-3 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Speaking through others, it is usually friends or close family members. Maybe, it will be a brother or sisters at church.

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27-17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

God speaks through the Holy Spirit. In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Acts 2-17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation The Spirit will guide you.

When you feel the Spirit telling you to go someplace it is for a reason. Maybe it is a hurting person who needs someone, maybe it is someone who has been praying for guidance.

The Holy Spirit speaks through our thoughts. When we have to make decisions the Holy Spirit will open our eyes to the words in the Bible. He speaks through circumstances.

He can speak to us through failures or success. In sickness or in healing.

The way to determine is to pray and read the Bible.

Speaking through dreams and visions. In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2- 17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. Proverbs 9:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jehovah is talking, are you listening? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with so many creative ways which always amaze me with our conversation. Thank you that in every way You speak so that I always understand. I laud You in the name of the Prince of truth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Fantastic Free Advice

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 

 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8 New International Version)

Let this always be our first move.

Before you make any decisions in life may I offer you some advice from an experienced old man?

I have heard that the Jews have a custom. Before making any decision they pray for three days first.

Let’s expand on that shall we?

Let’s pray and read the Bible for three days first.

If someone is trying the pressure tactics on you, whether it be to buy something, sign a contract or go somewhere or do something no, don’t walk away, RUN away. It is a trap!!! They are offering you sugar but really it is rubbish. When you stand your ground and REFUSE to surrender to their scams they will walk away looking for another stupid sucker.

When you take the time to read the Bible and pray it is saying to God: Okay big daddy, I know You are the smartest kid on the block. I know You love me and have promised to take care of me, so I will wait for Your divine guidance and trust Your providence.” You may not like His conclusion in the short run, but in the long run He will never let you down.

I was once offered what I thought was a jewel of a contract. The benefits alone were very generous, as was the pay. I informed them I had to wait three days and pray. While reading the Bible the reoccurring theme came up about laying snares to catch the innocent. It broke my heart, but I turned the contract down. Another teacher took the job. For three months he was always bragging about how good it was. We were green with envy. Then they sprang their trap. He was treated worse than you would a dog. He was given twice the classes they told him, had many extra duties dumped on him and had to come a running and teach class at his masters every beck and call (for no extra pay). Then he was the laughing stock of the teaching community. Now I danced with exalted joy for listening to the wise advice given by the best guidance councilor (the Holy Spirit).

Do you understand now children?

We have limited view of things. God has the WHOLE view of them.

Where are you going to go for advice? So let your first step ALWAYS be:

1) Wait. He who rushes in is a fool in a hurry for a disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

2) Pray: Think of praying as sharing a problem with your most trusted friend. Don’t be afraid. God loves you and wants you to pour out your heart to Him like a beautiful offering. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Psalms 16:7 3)

Meditate.

Now meditating does not mean sitting like a pretzel and contemplating your belly button lint. What it does mean is to read the word of God and to dink it in. Please do not try to gulp it down like a cheap beer. Rather take your time and sip it down like fine wine. Many times a verse will jump out at you. Write it down. Think about what it is saying. Pray for God to open your eyes to the awesome wisdom He is revealing to you.

Finally, with complete faith in God, take action. No worries, no regrets, just complete and total faith in our Holy God and His providence for us.

In the LORD I take refuge. Psalms 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullnessJohn 10:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I would like to close by saying: good luck.” But that would be stupid. It’s not luck, it’s Gods gift to you. Take it from an old fart. It really works. I am living proof.

Faith without action is no faith at all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with this recipe to avoid the schemes and scams of satans minions and to follow the true path of life that can only be given by He who is the God of truth. I praise You in the name of He who set the example of living a life of truth 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What Will Happen To

exquisite pink rose being gently caressed by raindrops

The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us.

We were respectful and friendly with them. Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes.

This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart.

But the sad thing is that: When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy.

And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conduit to guide them to Him.

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16The  Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with the knowledge of discernment on how to share with those in need and not those who are lazy and ungrateful. I sincerely request this in the name of the wisest of all 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

I Have Found That

share-the-word

 The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray. Proverbs 12: 26 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In my life I have found that the righteous give advice to help us. Most of it comes from their life experiences whether it be personal or whether it be from witnessing it in others lives. We ignore their advice at our own peril.

The wicked give advice to con you into doing something that will be to the benefit to them but will harm you. You obey their advice at your own peril. Choose wisely.

The best way to choose who to listen to when advice is given is to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide your choice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5) – LORD GOD of Truth for blessing me with sending me the Holy Spirit to guide me unto the truth to guide my way in this confusing world with so many deceptive voices crowding for my ears. I exalt You in the name of He who exemplifies truth 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Like Polluting a Fountain

do not allow them to control you

If the godly give in to the wicked, it’s like polluting a fountain or muddying a spring. Proverbs 25:26 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation               

This means that if a righteous man surrenders their principal to the wicked the words of their mouth is like a spring that has been muddied by someone walking through it.

Just as the water is undrinkable so too are the words of the righteous who has surrendered his Godly principals to the wicked.

Anyone who has walked through a forest on a hot day and becomes thirsty can tell you how frustrating it is because some idiot chose to walk through the stream upstream making it undrinkable for everyone else. I sure can.

So too are the words of the compromised righteous mans words disgusting to those around them.

To surrender your morals to the wicked is to pee in the stream of Gods word. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with a strong back bone to not surrender to the wicked and for sending the Holy Spirit to help me in my times of weakness so I do not compromise Your Holy standards for my life. I praise You in the name of He who is the most righteous Jesus Christ. Amen

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