What is Idolatry?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty. Revelation 21:27 New Living Translation

Jesus is talking about those forbidden from entering Heavens Gate.

Do you see how repulsive idolatry is to Him?

You think you do not worship idols?

How about your pets? I have seen many pets rule the house instead of the owner. Yes I love our pets like they were my own children but instead of worshiping them, I thank Jehovah for blessing me with such loving creatures. See the difference? Continue reading

To You, O Lord

GODS DELIGHTS

 

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in You I [have unwavering] trust [and I rely on You with steadfast confidence],
Do not let me be ashamed
or my hope in You be disappointed;
Do not let my enemies triumph over me.
Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed;
Those who turn away from what is right
and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed). Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long.
Remember, O Lord, Your [tender] compassion and Your loving kindnesses, For they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your loving kindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.
All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
For Your name’s sake, O Lord, Pardon my wickedness and my guilt, for they are great. Who is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with submissive wonder]? He will teach him [through His word] in the way he should choose. His soul will dwell in prosperity and goodness, And his descendants will inherit the land.
The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him, And He will let them know His covenant and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning.
My eyes are continually toward the Lord, For He will bring my feet out of the net. Turn to me [Lord] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins.
Look upon my enemies, for they are many; They hate me with cruel and violent hatred. Guard my soul and rescue me; Do not let me be ashamed or disappointed, For I have taken refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness protect me, For I wait [expectantly] for You. Psalm 25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This pretty much describes my attitude and behaviour towards my all knowing, all delivering, all encouraging, all loving all forgiving incredible Heavenly Father, Supreme King and Wise Teacher.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being so loving towards me in that You always supply me with the right amount of what I need, when I need it. You are so amazing. I exalt You in the great name of He who always supplied His disciples Jesus Christ. 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.

Will Find You Out.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

You will have sinned against the Lord; and be sure that your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is very prevalent today for folks to think they can do whatever they want with no repercussions. That is a fools dream.

On every computer there is a small camera at the top. Any good hack can turn it on and film you without your knowledge (which is why I put a piece of gum over mine. Not that I am doing anything wrong but rather I cherish my privacy). Of course the hacks cannot do this if your computer is turned off.

However, you cannot turn off the eyes of Jehovah.

He sees your wickedness and warns you to repent.

If you arrogantly refuse then He will bring His righteous hammer down hard on you.

Most times the evil you have perpetrated in solitude will be brought out in the public eye and that will increase your shame.

You cannot hide anything from Jehovah. He is waiting for you to repent. But if you refuse, look out. You will pay severely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees ) bless me with the constant presence of the Holy Spirit to guide my words and actions because I love You too much to ever want to hurt You with them or make You ashamed of me for saying or doing them. I humbly request this in the name of He who always carefully chose His words and actions to always bring glory to You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Struggling With the Fact.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

 And the babbling fool [who is arrogant and thinks himself wise] will come to ruin. Proverbs 10:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many braggarts brought low and shame hangs upon their neck like a heavy brick. Those who once looked down on those they thought were beneath them quickly and with no warning become one of them. Fortunately I have nothing to do with social media because it does not seems too social to me. It is more like a platform for shallow folks to puff up themselves to the rest of the world. It seems pitiful to me. In reality they are very shallow, fragile folks. Criticize them and then see how mature they are then. If you really want to hurt them, just ignore them.

“Narcissistic people are always struggling with the fact that the rest of the world doesn’t revolve around them.” ~Unknown

On the other hand, there are those like myself that does not care what he says, she says or they say. I care about what Christ says about me. That does not make me arrogant but rather constantly listening to and obeying the Holy Spirits guidance to persistently improve myself.

The humble will see Heaven, the proud will see Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my heart a desire and means to worship He who is the only one worthy of being worshipped, You. May I never worship anything or anyone (including myself) other than You because they are all inferior to You. I thank you in the name of my idol Jesus Christ. 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.

So They Could.

                          

So the Jews surrounded Him and began saying to Him, “How long are You going to keep us in suspense? If You are [really] the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), tell us so plainly and openly.” John 10:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Jewish leaders knew who Jesus was by the words He spoke and what He had done. They were looking to entrap Him so they could crucify Him. The were so wrapped up in religion that they knowingly rejected God. They refused to listen to Him because they are not His sheep.

Too often there are those in power in churches that believe they can do whatever they want with complete impunity. When you try to discuss it with them they become very offensive and try to use Bible verses to entrap you, to shame you and enslave you to their doctrine not Christ’s. These wicked creatures are doing satans work, not Christ’s. They will pay a heavy penalty for it on judgement day. They do more to drive folks away from Christ than towards Him.

I suffered because of these wicked souls when one of my parents was a member of a certain cult in my teenage years. Those that are still alive today are not powerful but weak pitiful souls. Those that have passed on died alone, weak and in a pitiful state.

I have unfortunately met many that can quote from the Bible but refuse to live by it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Magen (The Lord my Shield) for blessing me with Your  impenetrable shield to protect me from the vile attacks of the upsurgers of Your Divine word and for encouraging me when they do occasionally penetrate to my heart in a moment of weakness.

I glorify Thee in the name of He whose shield was too powerful for any of His foes to penetrate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Who Has a Head of Wax

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.

The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.

Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).

Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me).  Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).

Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).

Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Those who have a head of wax must not walk out in the sun (know your weaknesses) Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.

Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.

Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.

I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You Will Never Get it Back.

                                          

 So then, while we [as individual believers] have the opportunity.Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the greatest regrets in life is the missed opportunities to help others. It was times when I intentionally turned my back on the opportunity. Afterwards the devil laid a guilt trip on me by trying to tell me Jehovah was ashamed of me. That is not true but He was disappointed.

True, He will present many other opportunities and regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame even though He forgives me. 

The other regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame in the heart.

“If you lose an Opportunity you will be like one who lets the bird fly away; you will never get it back.” — John of the Cross

Do not dwell on your failure to do good when the opportunity arises but pray the Holy Spirit blesses you with being attentive to the opportunities and to bless you with the fortitude to obey Jehovahs nudging to do good. It is hard at first but once you make a habit out of it it becomes easier and your life is filled with a lot of joy.

Prayer: All glory to You my Beloved Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for Your favour of blessing me with bountiful opportunities to do good unto others so as to help them and to glorify Thy most Holy name. The added benefit is the expansion of spiritual wealth that multiplies with each act of goodness unto others. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose gift of His sacrifice blessed me with adoption into Your Holy family Jesus Christ. Amen.

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