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

The Best Guidance Councillor

follow your ways

 There Is One Who considers and understands all that they do. Psalms 33: 14-15 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Why go with the crowd when they do not know where they are going?

Why not submit to Jehovah and allow Him to nurture and grow you the way He made you to be unique, there is no one like you?

When you have problems, the first one you should go to is the one who understands you. Who understands you better that He who created you or some quack the needs some good counselling themselves?

When you need guidance in your life who better to go to some quack on TV or Jehovah, the wisest of them all?

What kind of guidance does the world give? Just put your mind to it and you can do anything you desire. Try flapping your arms and see if you can fly like a bird.

Jehovah says when you submit to Him He will guide you on the course He has set for your purpose in life.

Which one would you trust?

Jehovah is the best guidance Councillor there is bar none. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah (the God of knowledge) bless me with Your supreme knowledge so as to live a righteous life that is pleasing to You. I sincerely request this in the name of the wisest teacher 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

To do Anything Else Is 

 And Abram believed the Lord , and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith. Genesis 15:6 New Living Translation

I believe we all have it in us to have faith like Abraham. It does not come overnight but through a lot of trial and error. Look at Abraham,he failed in his faith when he went to Egypt, He failed in his faith in having sex with his wives slave to get an heir. Yet, through it all he slowly learned to increase his faith.

So too is it with us.

Although we fail (and we all do) in our walk with Christ, we push on and grow stronger every day. Many of the things Jehovah asks us to do will be illogical to the world and to us but we are obedient and sometimes we will see the fruit of our faith in this life, sometimes we will have to wait until we are in our Heavenly home before we understand and see the fruition of our faith. But, as our walk continues we expand on our faith, love and trust in our loving, wise Heavenly Father. To do anything else is the most illogical thing we could ever do.

Being a Christian is illogical. Many times Jesus asks us to do or to not do things that sound absurd. But, that is where the seeds of faith take the deepest root, when we listen and obey. His ways are truly larger than ours. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for blessing me with constantly enlarging my faith in You as You continuously exhibit Your ability to be able to do things which are beyond my limited comprehension. I am in never ending awe of You. I revere You in the name of He who did astounding things when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

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