The Worst Idol Is

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 “Little children, keep yourselves from idols!” 1 John 5:21 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The worst idol is the idol of self.

How much do you put your own self interests above the interest of Jehovah and or others?

Why are they covetous?

Because self is gratified by its increasing stores in fleeting material things. To me it is astounding the extreme gluttony of many in the world today. Indeed there are many that have such excess of material wealth they have to rent storage lockers to store their material possessions in because there is no more space in their house. Many do not even know what they have anymore.

What is vanity—but the indulgence of self love? It is obnoxious to me to see all these vain souls plastering picture of themselves all over social media to satisfy their vanity. It is humorous to see folks walk around with tattoo’s plastered all over their bodies so they look like freaks in a side show just to bring attention to themselves to satisfy their vanity.

When you foolishly believe you are better than anyone else, compare yourself to Jesus and then see how good you are. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What is ambition but the exultation of self?

It is abhorrent to me to listen to these vain creatures who cannot open their mouths without bragging about their accomplishments no matter how big or small. They are very obnoxious and annoying. These are the most shallow and insecure creatures I have ever met.

Unfortunately todays world is over run with them, so much so that this disgusting behavior is considered normal in their perverted minds.

Are you ambitious for Christs glory or your own?

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit guide my words and actions to always being honour and glory to my Beloved Jeesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever). I humbly request this in His majestic name. Amen

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

It Does Not Feel so Good.

THE FIRES OF HELL

Run away from sexual immorality [in any form, whether thought or behavior, whether visual or written]. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the one who is sexually immoral sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have read numerous times of epidemics of super strains of syphilis plaguing societies, especially Britain and the United State and the homosexual community in particular (I wonder: if homosexuality is normal, why is sexual diseases like aids, syphilis and gonorrhea so prevalent in that lifestyle?) . The reason is always the same: sexual promiscuity.

The worlds mantra of if it feels good do it leads to :”it does not feel so good now”. The consequences last a lifetime.

What amazes me now is that even though they know they are infected they use no protection during intercourse with others thus spreading the disease. That is so selfish and immoral.

To the world chastity is old fashioned.

My reply is that yes it is old fashioned. Jehovah is older than we can ever imagine but His words still ring true down through the ages.

The worlds “enlightenment” always leads to disaster but following Jehovahs way, even though it is difficult in this perverted world, always leads to what is best for us.

Really, the “new enlightenment” is nothing “new”. It goes all the way back to Adam and Eve who thought that picking the forbidden fruit would bring them enlightenment only to bring about a disaster which has plagued the world all the way up to today.

Satans “enlightenment” leads to a dark to torturous hell while Jehovahs light leads to a bright Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) enlighten my every step to continuously walk in Thy true light because it is the light of life. I sincerely request this in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Spare the rod?

OBEY GODS WORD

 I think a better way to say this is :To spare the rod the child will mock you.         

 How many parents laugh at the naughty deeds of a child when they should be disciplined?

Indeed there is a certain TV show that shows home made video’s. Oh how many times I have seen a child throw a temper tantrum (especially because they did not get the present they demanded for Christmas). The idiot parents sit there and laugh instead of disciplining the child.                                                      

How many parents are guilty of pampering their offspring and giving them everything they demand without making them work for it How are they going to discipline themselves when they become adults if the parents do not teach it to them when they are children                                                           

When they become teenagers and are nothing but continuous trouble for you and then you waked up for the need for discipline they will mock you.                                                                 

Then when the child grows into an adult they wail and wonder their children are so demanding, so ungrateful and so selfish.                                             

From my experience this is a sin for which the mothers and grandmothers are the worst offenders.   

When I was a teacher the first rule taught and enforced was respect. Both respect for the teacher and the teacher respecting the child. The majority of my children became well behaved and respectful. And, they loved their teacher for doing that for them.    

Parents, you are a disgrace if you do not discipline your children and the crops you sow from this damming negligence will be nothing but heartache and misery. By not disciplining them you are guilty of leading them down the road to Hell much more that Satan is.                                                              

A life without discipline is a life of misery. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) to teach me and when necessary discipline me so that I may always be an obedient child of Yours. I gratefully praise You for this treasured gift in the name of the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Is Life and Peace.

 

                                          

Now the mind of the flesh is death [both now and forever—because it pursues sin]; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace [the spiritual well being that comes from walking with God, both now and forever]. Romans 8:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You cannot serve both the world and Jehovah.

When you serve the world you are serving yourself. This only leads to catastrophe in your body, in your mind and in your spirit. Because you are selfish you refuse to listen to righteous wisdom because that prevents you from being selfish. This means you are going to make plentiful bad decisions in your life for which you are going to suffer.

When you go after the flesh, you destroy the spirit. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand when we submit to Jehovahs instruction for our lives we are blessed with bountiful blessings of peace, love, joy, security 0f Jehovahs presence and guidance in your life) and strong spiritual and mental health

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) that even though there are many brutal battles going on in the world around me, You have sheltered me from the majority of them like a hen shelters her chicks.

With the ones that I must battle with You provide strength for ultimate victory. Through all of them You amply supply me with peace, joy, love and security.

I praise 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It is Impossible To

 

Those who are in the flesh [living a life that caters to sinful appetites and impulses] cannot please God. Romans 8:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

Because Jehovah is spirit we cannot please Him if we are consistently living a destructive life of fleshly pleasure. He desires you to mature in spirit because that makes you a holy and righteous child of His. In the process of this we become ever closer to Him in spirit.

The Christian creed is Jehovah first, others second, self last. The worldly creed is myself first, others get the leftovers and Jehovah gets nothing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When we cater to the fleshly desire we are selfish and greedy. We do not care about anybody but ourselves.

Jehovah desires you to have a loving relationship with Him and then to emulate that out to others.

It is impossible to please self and to please God Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh my cherished Jehovah Abba (God our Father) I love to please You above all others because of Your immeasurable love for me.

Please bless me to exhibit Your love towards others so as to guide them to a Heavenly love which none other can compare.

I declare my love for You in the name of He whose love for me led Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Time to Walk Away.

                                                     

A prudent man sees evil and hides himself and avoids it.Proverbs 27:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a time to walk away.

When dealing with stubborn folks there is a time to walk away. They are selfish and arrogant. They believe they are right and refuse to allow the facts to get in the way or to consider others wants or desires. They just shut down and you might as well talk to a wall. Then you become angry and say words you regret latter.

When I encounter these situations I walk away and stay away from them. They mock me and tease me saying I am pouting and laughing because they got their own way.

In reality, I am shutting my mouth to them and opening it to Jehovah. Then if I am wrong He educates me why I am wrong and how to right it. If I am right, He goes after the other folk and the more they resist Him the stronger His hand is on them.

The way I look at it is if they refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit, they most certainly will not listen to me.

The majority of times it will take four or five days until the stubborn souls comes around. It works one hundred percent of the time for me.

Then there is the spawn of satan. They like to find a weakness and then intentionally irk you on to get you upset. Then the just step back and laugh at you. All the while they are pretending to be so sweet and innocent. To just ignore them is the best defense against them.

The funny thing is though, shortly after that someone turn the tables on them and they go off like a rocket. They make themselves look like a fool and are laughed at like they laugh at others.

I walk away when you are in a every situation that I feel I have to yell to get my point across. It prevents a lot of stress and words for which I shall regret later. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) deliver me from all destructive conversations that only lead to disasters. I humbly request this in the name of He who walked away from the scribes and Pharisee’s who only desired to argue with Him 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

No Man Can Fulfill His Calling.

                                            

Just as each one of you has received a special gift [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 4:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I remember so many in my younger years bragging that they did not need anybody. They only lived for themselves. Now that they are older and in need of help there is no one to help them and they have no one to love them. They are depressed, lonely folks whose daily life is a living Hell of loneliness.

I have seen so many use their God given talents to help others. Now that they are older and in need of help they are surrounded with folks falling all over them helping them. Their is a contented life filled with love, joy and peace.

Jehovah has endowed each of us with a special talent that is to be used in the community. To neglect that talent or to use it for your own selfish ends is indeed a great sin in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. Those who neglect to use it for their God given purpose pay dearly for it in their elder years.

When you surround yourself with nobody but yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah.  

No man can compass the ends of life by drawing a little line around himself upon the ground. No man can fulfill his calling as a Christian by seeking the welfare of his wife and family only, for these are only a sort of greater self.” Charles Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with plentiful opportunities to enrich myself with the most precious treasure of all, those of the heart, every day. In doing so I know I am also enriching Your heart which enriches my heart all the more. I exalt Thee in the name of my greatest treasure Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you A house full of sunshine, Hearts full of cheer, Love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Who has Borne the Scars

                                         

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was in Asia, met Asian Christians and informed them I was a Christian the first question they asked was how much have I suffered for Christ. They call most Christians in the west marshmallows because they have the feel good Christ not the real one. When it comes time to suffer for Christ they either walk, or run away saying: “That is not what I signed up for!” Upon coming home to Canada it was shocking to see just how true this was.

Ask any so called Christian how much they have suffered for Christ and see how many answer in the affirmative and how many of them look at you like you are insane.

Oh we all suffer from time to time, welcome to life, but how many are willing to suffer intentionally for Christ?

We may not receive physical lashes but we will receive brutal verbal ones which slash much deeper ( especially when it comes from family and former friends).

Oh we may not be in a physical prison but we may be in a one in social groups where no one will talk with you at work or school ( believe me it makes for a long day and many times you feel as if you are the only person in the world).

We may not receive physical blows but we will receive verbal ones as we are viciously laughed at, mocked, tormented and made the butt of jokes at work, at school, in church or any other social setting. These hurt much more than physical ones.

Can you think of any other manner in which we will suffer for Christ or that you have suffered for Christ?

To see a true Christian is to see one who has borne the scars for Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the privilege of suffering for You like You suffered for me. I know that this suffering brings us closer together and blesses me with appreciating You more and more because You walk through the suffering with me. I praise You in Your strong name. Amen.

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

Reliable and Trustworthy.

 

The law of the Lord is perfect (flawless), restoring and refreshing the soul; The statutes of the Lord are reliable and trustworthy, making wise the simple. Psalm 19:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In mans laws there is so many escape clauses for the wicked. Everyone is equal under Gods Law. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Sadly we see all too frequently that there seems to be one law for the rich and one law for everybody else. We see too much of liberals allowing criminals to go free in society to habitually continue there evil ways. It angers us and breaks our hearts.

In Jehovahs Law there is no escape clauses and those that break His law face His divine punishment. There is no plea bargaining nor parole.

Oh we are forgiven when we repent but must still face the punishment. It is fair and just. That restores our faith in true justice and refreshes our spirits.

Do not think that His justice will be done right away.

Sometimes it takes decades.

I have seen it in the lives of many and their pitiful existence in their own damnation. It breaks the heart to see them suffer but also faith that justice is being served.

The precepts of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. Psalm 19:7,8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Obeying Jehovahs Law brings peace, love and joy to the heart. Obeying your own law only brings misery, agony and war to the heart. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We receive more enlightenment of Jehovahs Law the more we obey Him. It brings joy to our hearts because we see a loving Father that only wants what is best for us. Many times we are selfish but when we are obedient unto His laws we see the destructive lifestyle we avoid when going down that destructive path. We see that His way is the only way.

A knowledge of the Bible without a college education is more valuable than a college education without the Bible.” Professor William Lyon Phelps

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with a Divine education in Your Holy School of Righteousness. Thank you with blessing me with the strength to implement Your teachings into my daily life. It has prevented much hardship and sorrow. I exalt Thee in the King of Righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Master of Our Passions

“Oh Lord, become the master of our passions, and the creator of our desires.” R. Marklund

Too many times today I hear elderly parents cry that their children and grandchildren have deserted them. The only time they call is when they want money. They are selfish, arrogant and ungrateful.

Who taught them that?

In Asia they are called Little Emperors and Little Empress’. Their mothers and grandmothers spoiled them rotten when they were children. Now they are lazy, arrogant, ungrateful and selfish. They have nothing to do with their parents and grandparents.

Instead of teaching their children love, respect, caring, sharing, and to be appreciative they taught them to whine until they got what they wanted. That they are so special, that happiness comes only from material things. Then they complain because their children grow up to be disrespectful, greedy, shallow, self centered materialistic brats who shun the parents and grandparents.

Most parents and grandparents spent lavishly on these brats while doing without for themselves.

Now they are poor and in need of help. Their children are cold and cold care less.

The parents and grandparents wail about their fate yet it was they themselves who created these monsters.

I was shocked when I returned to Canada from a ten year hiatus of teaching in China to see with disgust the same scenario repeatedly occurring here.

Being a care giver for my elderly mother I hear the same stories from her friends.

Doing volunteer work in a seniors home it is shocking to see and hear it from the residents the neglect of their children and grandchildren. So many of them have been thrown in there to die and never see their children or grandchildren except on Christmas. Yet, they themselves worshipped their children and grandchildren when they were young and now are abandoned by them. The only time they call is when they want money but if the parents or grandparents want any help the children and grandchildren are “too busy” to help.

Perhaps that is why Jehovah tells us to love Him above all others. It is because He loves us more than anyone could or would. He will never abuse us, leave us nor desert us.                                                          

And Jesus replied to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37  The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Idols always break the hearts of their worshippers.” C.S.Lewis

Prayer: Please my wonderful Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a heart that is faithful unto You and to worship only You as You are the only one worthy of praise, worship and stewardship. I humbly request this in the name of He who emulates what it is like to be Your Holy child Jesus Christ. Amen.

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