But despite all the miraculous signs Jesus had done, most of the people still did not believe in him. John 12:37 The Holy Bible The New Century Version
Have you ever tried talking with someone and they refused to listen?
You can give them all the irrefutable facts and they still laugh at you and call you crazy. You can get independent sources to back you up and they will accuse them of being liars and fakes.
It is not that they are stupid.
It is because they are wilfully ignorant. They are selfish. They know they have to admit they are wrong and change their lifestyle if they accept the truth you are sharing with them but are too proud and selfish to do so.
The arrogant say: I am right and I will not let the truth change my mind. Then when disaster strikes they blame everyone but themselves.
Try to warn a fool once. If they refuse to listen, walk away. It will save your sanity. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah
I think all of us have experienced this during the scamdemic.
And if you think you are alone in this experience, just think; Jesus preformed MIRACLES and they STILL refused to believe in Him.
Talk about willfully ignorant huh?
“To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.” Thomas Paine
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit to educate me in Your Divine truth. It has blessed me to live a life of integrity and righteousness which is one of the most valuable treasures there is. I know how You feel when the wicked reject Your truth because they reject it from me so often. I praise You in the name of the wisest Teacher of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

The proud hold me in utter contempt, but I do not turn away from your instructions. Psalm 119:51The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
There once was a popular song about doing it my way style of life. Those that live that life are selfish, egocentric, proud and stubborn. They gladly use and abuse others just to get what they want. When cannot get what they want or do not need them anymore, they through them away like rubbish.
They hate and hold in utter contempt those that walk with integrity and obedience to Christ. They do so because when they see us, our lifestyle and manner convicts them ( we do not verbally convict them, it is our lifestyle they hate ). Deep down inside they know they are evil and wicked and the ultimate reward for this lifestyle is the bowels of Hell and eternal damnation.
Hell is full of the proud, Heaven is full of the humble. Chose now because you will not have that choice on judgment day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit ‘Ori ( the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 ) to guide the light of the path to Heaven You have chosen for me to travel. I pray You bless me to be a light to guide those walking in darkness to Your Divine Light. I humbly request this in the name of the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Amen
May the Lord bless you to destroy the wall the wicked place over their hearts as you guide them to Jesus Joseph a son of Jehovah

Those who keep on doing good and are looking for His greatness and honor will receive life that lasts forever. Those who love only themselves and do not obey the truth, but do what is wrong, will be punished by God. His anger will be on them. Every Jew and every person who is not a Jew who sins will suffer and have great sorrow. Romans 2:7-9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version
There are those out there that teach that because Jesus is love we can do what ever we desire with no consequences. Because Jesus is loving there can be no Hell. Those that believe this are living in a fools world. I believe we all know there is a Heaven and a Hell but many use this mantra to deceive themselves.
Could it be any more blunt than this passage in the Bible?
Yes, there are always consequences for our actions both here on earth and in eternity. The wise are loving towards others and receive a great reward.
The foolish only love themselves and receive great damnation. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank You my Beloved Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses) for blessing me with Your amazing graciousness for the service I provide for You. Thank You my Beloved for the numerous opportunities to serve You in the community around me. Thank you my Beloved that You with hold Your blessings from the stingy and selfish. I exalt You in the name of my Beloved big brother with whom I deeply desire to emulate in doing good and sharing, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Father I deeply desire to forgive other as You forgive me.
Help me to forgive those in my care when they are selfish, ungrateful and abusive towards me. I need this to prevent me from having my heart filled with hatred and bitterness. If the heart is filled with this then it is impossible to care in a loving manner.
Help me to stay focused on the fact that in serving them, I am serving You and You are always appreciative of my compassionate efforts.
But, Father just as You specify that repentance must come before forgiveness so too must there be repentance before the healing is possible.
Please send the Holy Spirit to convict them and bring them unto repentance less their attitude condemn the to Hell.
Thank you that You are always there for me to cry out my anguish to when those in my care are selfish, abusive and ungrateful. I humbly request this in the name of He who forgave the repentant sinner on the cross beside Him, Jesus Christ. Amen
Those who refuse to repent are also those who will continue the abuse. Joseph a son of Jehovah
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“I want to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering” Philippians 3:10 The Holy Bible, The New Transaltion Version
Have you been there yet?
You know, have you walked through the valley of Hell. A place of fire and torment.
I have. It was during a toxic relationship. The person was terribly abusive, mean spirited,selfish and cruel. I stayed believing I could help this person. Of course they must want to resolve their issues and take action themselves. This person did not want to change their behavior. Finally I walked away.
Then, came another time of hell, the time of recovering from the abuse. I kept on calling out to God, but He was silent.
Thankfully God did direct me to the resources needed to recover. It took a year.
Through that time I developed a very deep and personal relationship with God. There was no other way for this relationship to exist except my going through the hell first to get rid of the toxic relationship that put a chasm between us.
In time the wounds were healed and my spirit resurrected into the family of Christ.
If you are going through the fire right now perhaps it in necessary to burn off bad habits or beliefs.
My trying to serve this abusive person prevented me from serving God. So, He just stepped back and allowed the abusive person to do their worst (a boy did they do a job on me) to burn off my feeling of obligation to them. Once the relationship ended, then came the healing.
Through the healing came a deep love for and respect for God.
So too is it possible for you.
If you are going through that hell, whether it be an addiction or toxic relationship or health or financial problems perhaps it is because you need to have something burned off that restricts you from your relationship with God.
Yes definitely get help.
I am so happy I did.
They helped open my eyes to a lot of things that has helped me ever since. At the completion of this time your spirit will be resurrected into a close relationship with God.
Believe me it hurts God too to have to step back and watch you go through this, but it is necessary.
Even though it hurts our Beloved to watch, He does step back and allow us to go through Hell to get us into Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) Judges 6:12 for blessing me with walking through my time of torment and agony. Thank you for healing me when You finally had enough and guided me away from the tormentor. I would never had made it without You. With my deepest gratitude I thank you in the name of the greatest Healer of all, 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 mouth of an immoral woman is a dangerous trap; those who make the Lord angry will fall into it. Proverbs 22:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament
I have noticed that immoral folks are demanding ungrateful creatures. They only call you when they want something and never help you in return.
Perhaps that is Jehovahs manner in which He delivers justice to those who anger Him.
The way to anger Jehovah is to be selfish, self centered and cold hearted.
Be careful of how you treat others because Jehovah will allow someone worse to come into your life and give you back seven times worse than what you gave another. Joseph a son of Jehovah.
The wicked conceive evil; they are pregnant with trouble and give birth to lies.They dig a deep pit to trap others, then fall into it themselves. The trouble they make for others backfires on them. The violence they plan falls on their own heads. Psalms 7:14-16The Holy Bible, New Living Testament
The Lord is known for his justice. The wicked are trapped by their own deeds. Psalm 9:16 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament
Prayer: Please Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) bless me to live a life of integrity, compassion and respect. I have a deep desire to imitate my Beloved best friend Jesus Christ. I humbly request this in His amazing name. Amen.
May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Photo and article @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2019
Behospitable to one another without complaint. Just as each one of you has received a specialgift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor].1 Peter 4:9-11Holy Bible Amplified Version
In unions it is the steward that goes to management when there is a problem between one of its member’s and the company (at least it was when I was a union member.).
To be Gods steward we are to be helpers to Jehovah. We are to guide others to Jehovah and to observe the proper conduct in His Holy Family.
To do this Jehovah has equipped us with specific skills to accomplish this assignment. We need not go to seminary or university to attend these classes, the Holy Spirit knows us individually and has individual classes prepared for us so we will learn our gifts and how to use them correctly. When we are ready He will lead us to the proper place and time to utilize these skills to the best effect.
The problem is too many are neglecting their gifts and instead selfishly wasting their time on their own goals in life rather than being good stewards in Christs kingdom.
Are you a good steward?
Stewardship is the obedient management of life and all of its resources under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to bring glory unto Jehovah and to bring the lost into His Holy family. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the honor of being Your free will servant. May I humbly always be obedient unto Your Divine direction of the proper use of the resources Your give me to expand Your Kingdom of Light into the world of darkness. I sincerely request this in Your majestic name. Amen
The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.
Jesus said to him, “I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the[real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
I see it all the time on the idiot box and on the internet:We see so much hate in this world. Let us just be kind to one another and it will make this hate go away. It is like they foolishly believe that by their will they can conquer satan (which they do not even believe in, which is a huge mistake) and make the world like Shang Gra La. That was a fantasy world and so is their belief.
Although we cannot bring world wide peace, through the Holy Spirit we can bring peace to our families, to our neighborhoods and to ourselves.
The only way in which to receive the blessing of the Holy Spirit is through Jesus Christ.
This infuriates folks because of their selfish manner in which says I will not surrender my will to Christ but rather I will do what I want to. As such, it infuriates society to hate those preaching about the Prince of Peace to the extent of having a flaming desire to extinguish these voices with violence (which is ironic because that is what they are preaching against in the first place) even to the point of death.
“How would telling people to be nice to one another get a man crucified? What government would execute Mister Rodgers or Captain Kangaroo?” — Philip Yancey
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your supreme peace through the Holy Spirit. May I be blessed to be a conduit of this amazing love to those walking in a cold dark world. I give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in the name of the Prince of Peace 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.
For to me, to live is Christ [He is my source of joy, my reason to live] and to die is gain [for I will be with Him in eternity].If, however, it is to be life here andI am to go on living, this will meanuseful andproductive service for me; so I do not know which to choose [if I am given that choice]. But I am hard-pressed between the two. I have the desire to leave [this world] and be with Christ, for that is far, far better Philippians1:21 23The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Do not cry when a loved one is dying, they are going to a far better place. It amazes me when folks what to keep a suffering loved one alive. I think keeping suffering loved ones alive is selfish and cruel. I have watched loved ones die a slow agonizing death from diseases and let me tell you, it is no picnic for wither them or their loved ones.
Contrast that with being in communion with other saints in Christs kingdom in the second Heaven (the Bible mentions three Heavens and when those in Christ die before His return they go to the second Heaven awaiting their masters return to His Kingdom here on earth, which is one of the other Heavens).
I look forward to physical death to be in spiritual Heaven with Christ. Until that blessed event happens I shall do the work He has assigned to me with all the gusto I have. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Oh my cherished Jehovah Heseh (God is love) how my heart aches to be with the supreme love of my life for eternity. While waiting may I always preform my duties unto You with all the gusto there is in me. I pray this in the name of my best friend that I shall spend eternity together with in pure delight Jesus Christ. Amen
May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.
