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

He is there.

HOPE IN THE LORD

I look behind me and you’re there, then up ahead and you’re there, too — your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful — I can’t take it all in! Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit? to be out of your sight? Psalm 139:5-7  The Message Bible

Remember the Santa Claus song: You better be nice, you better not pout, Santa Claus is coming to town?

Now we adults understand there is no such person as Santa Claus (You don’t still believe in Santa do you?).

But, God IS everywhere.

When you are being naughty He is watching you.

Do you think Jesus would approve?

Ultimately you are doing what you do for one of two reasons: to serve oneself or to serve God. Unknown

On the other hand, when we are lonely, when we are sad, when we are worried, He is there. He has an unending sweet beautiful love for you. He cares.

When you go to sleep, He is there like a loving daddy. He truly is everywhere. He is always there.

So the next time you encounter any difficulties, remember: God is there, God cares. Take it to Him , call out to Him.

I believe that life is given us so we may grow in love, and I believe that God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower – the Light in my darkness, the Voice in my silence. Helen Adams Keller

At the same time remember that when good things happen to us they are gifts from God. Let’s not forget our manners and take time right there and then to say thank you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) – Hebrews 13:5 for always being with me through both the good times and the bad. I praise You in the name of He who I enjoy walking and talking the most with 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

Brings Me into His

Give burden to Jesus

 Weeping may last through the night but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Satan is darkness, Jesus is light.

When the darkness of fear, anger, sadness and worry envelope me, I call out to my loving Heavenly best friend. He lifts me out of satans darkness and brings me into His loving, healing, comforting assuring brilliant light.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit remind me of how You walked with me through oh so many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares and dangers in the past so that I will have complete confidence in you whenever they come upon me in the future. Because this will cause my heart to sing for joy knowing you are there, you care and you have total control over the situation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing my heart with exceeding joy as I remember Your brilliant light that guided me through the darkest hours of my life I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Most Beautiful Song

Have you ever heard the most beautiful song?

When you are afraid Jehovah Ma’oz – Lord is my Fortress softly sings loving words of protection in His secure fortress in a song just for you to bless your heart with peace. It is the most beautiful song you need to hear at that time.

When you feel weak and cannot carry on Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) sings a special song just for you to strengthen you. It is the most beautiful song you need to hear at that time.

When it seems as if everybody has deserted you and you feel all alone He is Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful to me). He is your faithful best friend that will never leave you. He is Jehovah Pryyand- God is my best friend. He is Jehovah Heseh (God always loves me). His is a Divine love that will always be with you. He sings a joyous song to have you as His special friend. It is the most beautiful song you need to hear at that time.

When your heart is filled with worries and sadness He is Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses me with Peace). He sings you a song to fill your heart with His beautiful divine peace. It is the most beautiful song you need to hear at that time. “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He takes great delight in you, He quiets you with His love, He rejoices over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

“It is God to whom and with whom we travel, and while He is there at the End of our journey, He is also at every stopping place.”  Elisabeth Elliot

So, God likes to sing too! He even likes to share his lullabies with you whom He loves. He gently rocks you in is His strong gentle loving arms as He quiets you, His child, with His affectionate loving care while singing you soothing lullabies.

Prayer: Thank you my most cherished loving Father in Heaven Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present in every moment of my life. I exalt Thee my Divine love in the name of He whose love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I would like to close with this: Jesus loves me this I know, for the He always tells me so. Young and old, man and woman, we are all so precious in His sight. Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes Jesus cares. Yes Jesus loves me, I know, because He tells me so. Thank you Jesus.

What is the Differance?

 

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. John 14:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is the differance?

The peace Jesus blesses us with is that we have a loving Father in Heaven that cares about us and cares for us. No matter how fierce the storms we know He is walking through them with us. It can never be taken from us.

The peace the world looks for is being financially secure. That can be taken from you in a moment with a job loss or bankruptcy. A house, which can be destroyed by fire or natural disaster. Our health, which can be taken from us with one diagnosis from the doctor. Our wits which can be taken from us in an accident or with something like Alzheimer Disease. And of course what good does all this material wealth do for us when we age and our bodies and minds break down, when all of our loved ones and friends have either deserted as we live out our final days in a seniors home where each moment is a living hell of loneliness and sadness?

With us Christians we know Jesus will never desert us and always loves and comforts us.

Doing a lot of volunteer work at a seniors home and watching my parents generation in their elder years, I have seen both sides of this coin and know it to be true.

What good does this material wealth do you as you are terrified as you are drawing our final breath and are going into the unknown (but in reality you know you are going into Hell)?

Christians are blessed with peace in our final breath with the knowledge that our Loving Father will send an angel to us to guide us to our Heavenly home while those in the world are terrified as they know there will be an angel to drag them to the gates of Hell and throw them into eternal damnation and torment.

Doing a lot of volunteer work at a seniors home and watching my parents generation in their elder years, I have seen both sides of this coin and know it to be true.

When we live moment by moment in Christs love, that is our golden years. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace through all my trials sorrows and tribulations. It is not only a calming peace and comforting peace but a peace that blesses with strength to not only endure but to prosper. I exalt you in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Focus to See the Light.

weary

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer from trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference between the ones walking in darkness and those of us that are walking in the light is that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, cares for us and about us.

We have a choice. We can carry the world on our shoulders, or we can say, “I give up, Lord; here’s my life. I give you my world, the whole world.” –Bruce Larson

They have no one that has the perfect healing touch. Jesus loves you.

Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we suffer the loss of a loved one we can always take our pain and sadness to Jesus. Do not forget how he weeped at His friends grave.

When we have lost our homes do not forget that Jesus was homeless.

When we are sick do not forget the sick Jesus healed.

When we have been betrayed do not forget how one of His own disciples betrayed Him. When our family and or friends reject us because of our walk towards our heavenly home do not forget how Jesus’ own family rejected and bitterly mocked Him.

When we suffer from exhaustion do not forget how exhausted Jesus was from his preaching and healing.

When we are facing death from a slow disease killer do not forget how Jesus knew about the type of death He must suffer.

Because Jesus walked amongst us He has experienced everything we have and so much more.

Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. —George Müller

So when we are experiencing our difficulties remember to focus on He who is the light of the world. He will comfort you, heal you, encourage you and walk with you through it all because He loves you.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. –Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my world with Your Divine love, assurance, comfort and strength in my darkest moments. I praise You for this blessing in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Worship Before Your Feet.

RELIGIOUS HATERED

Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Revelation 3:9 New King James Version

This verse will vindicate us before those who mock us now.

They mock us and persecute us for being Christians.

When Jesus comes they will be brought before us and made to kneel and acknowledge we were righteous while they were filth. They will not be laughing then.

Instead of feeling smug I think I will cry great tears of sadness.

Sadness because I know they are condemned to Hell.

Think of your family and those who were your friends that are not in the family of Christ kneeling before you and acknowledging you before being cast into eternal darkness and torment.

 

I do not believe I will find any satisfaction in it.

Will you?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) rescue those whose hard hearts are condemning the into Hell with repentant hearts for the injuries they have inflicted upon my heart and heal the wounds their words have pierced my heart with. I humbly request this in the name of He who rescued His beloved Peter from the waves of the storm that were engulfing Him Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                          

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