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

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.

Is Becoming and Appropriate For.

WORSHIP

Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous ones; Praise is becoming and appropriate for those who are upright [in heart—those with moral integrity and godly character].Psalm 33:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Praise is appropriate for those walking in harmony with Jehovah because it is respectful to be grateful to the One who abundantly showers us with His blessings. It is wiser to be grateful for the things Jehovah blesses me with than to pout because I cannot have my own way. Not only does it make our Heavenly Fathers heart dance with joy but He reciprocates back to us ten fold more. You ain’t experienced nothing until you have experience Jehovahs joy in your heart.

We should rejoice because the Holy Spirit has taught us and helps us live a life of integrity. This prevents us from falling into deep shameful and disastrous behavior. Oh it may seem for a while like the wicked are prospering this disposition but Jehovahs righteous hand shall strike them suddenly with no mercy.

We are to rejoice because when we have Godly character that means we emulate Jehovah and that is the best character to possess. As well that means we are close to Him and that is the best blessing of all. It makes for a much more contented life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I sing glory, glory hallelujah unto you my Beloved Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for constantly providing for this adoring child of Yours. I worship You in the name of He with whom I worship Jesus Christ. Amen

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