Warn Those Who Are

BEING TORN DOWN SPIRITUALLY

 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 The Holy Bible New International Version

Notice it does not say to support the lazy trouble makers?

I see so many good hearted but wrong minded support the lazy drunks and drug addicts and welfare bums that foolishly believe we owe them a free ride.

That is wrong.

You are not helping them but hurting them by encouraging them to continue on in a destructive lifestyle for both themselves and for society (because many commit crimes to support their habit which hurts innocent folks).

There is an old saying that idle hands are the devils playground. Do you notice that drug addicts are also habitual criminals? Perhaps doing time in a third world prison would do them more good than holding their hand and encouraging this lifestyle because there is no repercussions for their actions.

They are to be warned that their lifestyle is wrong. If they choose to continue on then do so on their own and face harsh consequences for their actions.

Our financial, mental and spiritual efforts are to go to help those who are willing to put forward an effort to help themselves.

To support lazy bums and drunks and drug addicts is a sin because it is a waste of our resources which should go to help those who are prepared to help themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) bless me with providing me with guidance to those who are in need and with the wisdom to differentiate between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. I humbly request this in the name of He who provided only to those who put forward and effort to help themselves Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

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

When We Pray For

praying in chinese church

 Pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

How can praying for others heal you?

I believe that when we pray for others it heals our spirit of hatred,anger and fear ( I know it does me). In the process that causes less stress upon the mind and body. This can cause healing as the body repairs itself from the tension of the stress.

I have seen many angry, spiteful folks full of disease while also seeing many prayerful folks very healthful. especially, in their elder years.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rapha (God my healer) that in some mysterious way when I pray out of love and concern for others it brings healing to me. I praise You in the name of the greatest Healer Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

It Happens to All of Us

GUARD YOUR INPUT

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

It happens to all of us.

There are folks that abuse us at some point in our lives.

Some repent and some do not.

Irregardless, the wound cuts deep and there is bitterness in our hearts. If we are not careful the root will grow deep like a dandelion root. It will poison our spiritual life, our mental life and our physical life until it destroys us. The root grows too deep for us to rip it out. We need to call upon the Master Gardener for that.

His name is Jesus and you can call Him anytime at P.R.A.Y.

Do not think this will be a one time call. Sometimes the seed comes back and we need to call the Master Gardener again. Sometimes those weeds will never be completely eradicated until we reach the Gates of Heavens home for us.

Jesus is the Master Gardener. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka :God our healer, for blessing me with Your Divine healing. Some of the wounds were deep and infested my soul for decades. The only way healing occurred was to place the infection at Your feet and trust in Your gracious healing. I thank you in the name of the grand Healer Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This Verse Says It All.

evil desires

 And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God Titus 2:11-12 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

This verse says it all.

There are those that foolishly believe that once they are saved by grace alone they can go out and do whatever their flesh desires and it is okay because Jesus died for their sins.

You cannot have it both ways.

Either you will be a slave to fleshly desires or you will obediently serve Christ of your own free will.

The first one is a cruel slave master which kills the spirit and slowly painfully destroys the soul.

The second one brings life to the body and brings joyous eternity to the spirit. Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy, the world curses us with anger, fear, depression, worry and unfulfillment. I choose Christ. Which one do you choose? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Ps10:16 for blessing me with the honour of being Your humble obedient servant. I thank You in Your majestic name. Amen

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

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

To His Steps.

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps. A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless Proverbs 14:15-16, New International Version

Do you fall for the bait?

How many times do you see advertisements that promise a new younger you, a promise that if you follow this formula for a “special price” it will guarantee a new you, a more beautiful you, a richer you, a happier you?

How many times do you fall for the bait and part with hard earned cash only to find yourself ripped off?

Do you recklessly spend money on the newest fad in the foolish believe that you “have to have it” only to have it thrown in the closet a few weeks later? Come on now, how many of you older people were actually stupid enough to buy the “pet rock” in the sixties and seventies? Where is your pet now?

“These were people so hungry for love that they were accepting substitutes. There were embracing material things and expecting a sort of hug back. But it never works. You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship. Money is no substitute for tenderness, and power is not a substitute for tenderness. I can tell you as I’m sitting here dying, when you most need it, neither money nor power will give you the feeling you’re looking for, no matter how much of them you have.” Morrie (from Tuesdays with Morrie)

I believe in following a wise Jewish tradition that if you follow will prevent a lot of grief in your life. Before you buy anything or sign any contract always wait and pray for three days. Depend upon and obey Gods decision. It may not be what you want to heard or want to do, but isn’t it prudent to depend upon Gods infinite wisdom than our faulty wisdom? I have seen many people fall for the sign it now or it will be gone tomorrow sucker trap. Later they deeply regret it.

What the word “fear means is respect. Shouldn’t we respect Gods guidance instead of a snake oil salesman?

Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands. Elisabeth Elliot

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hoshe’ah The Lord Saves ) Psalm 20:9 bless me with Your salvation when circumstances tempt me to lose my temper or to surrender to satans temptation to do foolish things. I earnestly request this in the name of He who conquered all temptations Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah
