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

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

My Gimme List.

RICHES OF THE HEART

It seems like the majority of folks today are like spoiled babies always crying gimme, gimme, gimme. It does not matter if the are young or old, man or woman (and as much as the lie berals like to pollute Gods design, that is the only two sexes there is naturally). It does not matter if the are rich or poor or what ethnically they are.

Yet, in this deafening screeching is the sound of silence of gratitude and service.

What can I offer the Lord for all he has done for me? Psalm 116:12 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is my gimme list

Please my Love gimme a grateful heart to thank you for all of your blessing both great and small every day.

Please my Love gimme eyes to see the subtle blessing You abundantly shower upon me every day so I can praise You more and more every day.

Please my Love, bless me with a heart that expands its love for You more and more every day.

Please my Love, gimme a mind and body that is submissive to Your will in my life every day.

Please my Love, gimme a forgiving heart to those who have offended me just as You forgive me when I repent.

Please my Love, open my eyes unto the needy not the lazy and ungrateful but rather those who are in genuine need and are appreciative of the help given.

Please my Love guide me where to invest Your tenth of my salary to You where it will do the most good for Your kingdom.

All of these are a gift of thanksgiving for my salvation and adoption into my Loving Heavenly Fathers family.

I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving Psalm 116:17 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Can you think of any other gimmes that should be on this list?

A Christian always has two open hands. One to receive the blessing of our Beloved Poppa in Heaven and the other to share those gifts with others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Poppa) guide me to give back unto You as You have abundantly give unto me. I know I can never even match You much less surpass You but I would sure like to try. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who gave me the greatest blessing of all, an open door directly to You, 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.

Have Nothing More to do With Them.

 When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble?Job 34:29 Holy Bible New King James Version

 I have a very contentious neighbor. He can go off like a rocket with little to no provocation by me. He is a constant thorn in my side. Indeed many times some very un-Christian words come out of my mouth during the conversation as he continuously pushes my buttons.

This problem was taken to the Lord and asked the proper manner in which to handle the situation without me exploding at him as he irritated me. The above verse jumped out at me during the next mornings Bible Verse as well as;

If people are causing divisions among you, give a first and second warning. After that, have nothing more to do with them. Titus 3:10 New Living Translation Bible

This makes perfect sense.

These types of folks are not interested in anyone’s opinion but their own and care not about anyone but themselves. Trying to talk things out with them is like talking with a wall. I do not waste my time talking with walls.

I do not even speak with him if he tries to talk with me, I keep silent and ignore him. It prevents a lot of trouble.

Now there is a lot more peace in my life.

If you refuse to be respectful enough to listen to others opinion then do not waste my time. Go talk with yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) bless me with peace, wisdom,grace and strength when encountering those who delight in causing grief to others. I sincerely request this in the name of who kept His peace when dealing with arrogant detractors and unfair accusers towards 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

Flows From It.

 Above all else, guard your heart,  for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 Holy Bible, New International Version                                                                

 Your input determines your output.                                                   

In other words what you put into your mind determines how you behave. This affects your relationships, your mental and physical health.

The best input comes from the Bible and holy communion with Jehovah. They guard your heart and mind on righteousness while not imputing greed, hatred nor revenge which pollutes the heart and mind.

That is why it is important to have a thank you prayer every morning. It begins your day with a joyful disposition. The more grateful we are to Jehovah for all His blessings through out the day the less we are likely to become Negative Nellies.

It is also important to listen to Christian music instead of worldly music. Christian music points to a loving , grateful relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit while the worlds music is all about greed, lust and revenge. The first one helps in living a joyful, peace filled life, the second one leads to unfulfillment, anger and depression.

The same holds true for movies and TV series. What goes in must come out. With Christ it is the sweetness of love, joy, peace and Divine purpose. With the world it is the stench of filthy soul destroying selfishness.

Choose wisely if you want a good day, good life and a great eternal retirement home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with a smorgasbord of Heavenly delights to feast upon every day. I need these to continue to grow more mature into the Heavenly child You know I am capable of being. I thank you in the name of He whose companionship is the sweetest of delights Jesus Christ. Amen

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

They Want Something From Him.

WORSHIP

 And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross daily[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]. Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many times have you seen children give a grandma a great big hug because she bought them something they wanted? They do not love grandma, they love the gift she has bought them.

How many folks only love Jesus because they want something from Him?

How many are willing to suffer for Him and because of Him?

Look around you and think of what is near and dear to your heart. Would you put it on the alter and sacrifice it to Christ (if it is someone or a pet, please do not physically sacrifice it)? By that, I mean would you give it up in order to become a servant of the most high King? So we will say you are living in a nice home in a nice neighborhood, if Christ called upon you to sell the house, give the money to a charity of His choosing and live in a ghetto, would you do it?

Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, including me.

Would you be obedient unto His commands?

If not, then you are not a true Christian but a marshmallow one. Think of the one you love the most.

If becoming a true Christian meant that they would hate you and disown you, would you sacrifice that relationship for Christ? That means you will never see them or speak to them for the rest of your life. Yes, He has called upon servants to make such a sacrifice, I have witnessed it numerous times in Asia.

“Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly Kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many desirous of consolation, but few of tribulation. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities befall them.” — Thomas à Kempis

Prayer: Thank you for the privilege of enduring numerous trials and tribulations in my relationship with You Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend). It has blessed me with coming into and ever deeper everlasting loving relationship with You my best friend because of these sufferings. I exalt You in Your wonderful name. Amen.

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

Do Nothing From

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit [through factional motives, or strife], but with [an attitude of] humility [being neither arrogant nor self-righteous], regard others as more important than yourselves.  Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you do something for selfish desires you always do so at the expense of others. Beware, the Bible warns that it will come back on you seven times, seven times worse than the hurt you have caused others. I have seen it numerous times through out my life and it not pleasant to see and even more unpleasant to endure.

To be conceited means to have a over importance of yourself above others. When you look down on others beware the Bible warns that it will come back on you seven times, seven times worse .I have seen many haughty ones brought down much lower than the ones they were looking down on. It is extremely humiliating.

To be factional means to do something that is in your self interest. This usually is done at the expense of others. Again, those that practice this evil has it come back on them seven times, seven times worse as the Bible warns. To be strifeful means to enjoy causing fights. I have witnessed many wicked one practice this wickedness with demonic glee as they stir up contention all the while acting sweet and innocent. Beware, the Bible warns that it will come back on you seven times, seven times worse than the hurt you have caused others. I have seen it numerous times through out my life and it not pleasant to see and even more unpleasant to endure.

These disgusting creatures that gleefully practice these malicious end up being miserable creatures that suffer terribly for their wicked deeds far more that they ever gain from them.

The crops you plant today you will eat tomorrow, so, make sure you plant sweet crops because they will taste better at meal time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit guide my thoughts, words and deeds to always serve my Beloved Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever). When the flesh invades my mind and there wells up a foolish desire to satisfy its allure please enlighten me to its calling and bless me with the wisdom and strength to resist its destructive force. I humbly request this in the name of the Heavenly King I am privileged to serve Jesus Christ. Amen

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