Let Them Not Rule.

 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous (deliberate, willful) sins;
Let them not rule
and have control over me. Psalm 19:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are certain inherited sins in us all as well are a fallen race.

The only way to conquer them is through the submission unto the all power of the Holy Spirit.

I know, that is the only way I beat alcoholism.

Have you ever seen a row between two folks and just before it comes to blows a friend steps between one of them and prevents him from getting into a fight? He does so because he knows the other man or woman will beat the snot out of his or her friend. The ringer is laughing at the sucker and egging them on to fight just for the perverted pleasure of fighting.

That is what the man in the above verse is saying.

Satan knows our weakness and will work on it and present it to us in an appealing manner. The temptation is too strong for us. That is when we need to call in the supreme Superman to save the day. His name is The Holy Spirit.

There have been numerous times the temptation was so great I thought my head was going to explode. I called out in desperation :” Come now Holy Spirit, please hurry or all is lost.” It may sound incredible but it is true, the temptation was immediately taken from me.

Satan drools when he sees foolish Christians think they are strong enough to resist him. They are the easiest prey.

That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Without the Holy Spirits help we all fall away from Jehovah and towards satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for being my defense against a wily foe who can easily destroy me without You but cannot touch me with You. I give thanks in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross and at the resurrection Jesus Christ. Amen

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

There No Longer Remains

 

For if we go on willfully and deliberately sinning after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice [to atone] for our sins Hebrews 10:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a teacher and a student was naughty punishment was meted out. Before the punishment was given the student would cry and promise not to commit the offence again. About ten minutes later they would do the exact same offence. They were warned again. Again they said they were sorry and would cease to be naughty. Ten minutes later they would be back at it again. This time the punishment was much more severe than the original.

So too it is with Jehovah. He will warn us when we are committing an sin willfully and deliberately against Jehovah. His anger will burn like hot coals against us and His hand shall be heavy upon us.

Just read your Bible to confirm that.

Just remember: you cannot con Jehovah.. There will be severe consequences for any fool that is stupid enough to try.

To say you are sorry for offending someone while continuing in the offence is not repentance but is the voice of a hypocrite. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense.) bless me to always be attentive to Your word, to understand Your word and to always be obedient unto Your word not just because I fear Your vengeance but also because I do not desire to receive the worse punishment of all, separation from You. When I do sin please have Your hand continuously heavy upon my soul to bring my into repentance. I humbly request this in the name of He who I cherish being so close with every day Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Worry is Practical Atheism.

                                              

So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is a disease that plagues us all. It’s name is worry.

We worry about our health, we worry about our finances, we worry about our relationships, we worry about our country. The list goes on.

When we are Christians worry is a sin. That is right, worry is a sin. It indicates we do not have faith (which means trust) in Jehovah to take care of us. Because we do not believe in His promises we are calling Jehovah a liar.

Now when we are baby Christians it is normal to have little faith because we have little experience in our walk with Christ. However, those of us that have walked with Christ for numerous years and decades that still have no trust in Him shows a lack of interpersonal relationship with Him, it is shallow.

Worry is practical atheism put into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for always delivering me from all my worries and cares. I exalt The in the name of He who fed the five thousand and delivered them from their cares in that moment 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

Like Circles in the Water.

                                                      

Every day he multiplies lies and violence. Hosea 12:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many that when they were young they had so much going for them. But, they started walking in darkness in a few small things and a little at a time the darkness in them grew larger and larger. At a certain point in time the darkness grew stronger and more powerful until it destroyed them. Now they are pitiful creatures with no hope and no life. They threw it all away.

Every sin starts out small but must be dealt with ruthlessly and immediately or else it spreads like cancer and other sins come in to give it more power over your life.

Do not forget, most forest fires start out as small embers from a campfire or a cigarette but can and do cause massive destruction.

“Sins are like circles in the water when a stone is thrown into it; one produces another. When anger was in Cain’s heart, murder was not far off.” — Philip Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) continue to send the Holy Spirit to protect me from fleshly desires. And, to convict me when I surrender to them as well as provide a means of conquering them through Your mighty power. I humbly request this in the name of He who defeats all demons 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

Like a Rose Blooming In.

                                                   

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and the One who rescues me; My God, my rock and strength in whom I trust and take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower—my stronghold. Psalm 18:2 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One time while camping in the desert the winds picked up so bad I had to cup my hands over my face or else I would have been smothered to death.

That is what it is like sometimes when the world comes howling at us with TV, movies, music and society all screaming that sin is good and righteousness is foolishness.

That is when we need the Holy Spirit to come and wrap Himself around us and assure us we are walking the right walk.

In the morning there was huge red butes that when the sun rose they looked like giant fingers slowly moving to clamp onto my and squeeze me to death (or so it seemed).

So too can it seem as if there are pressures from the world to conform to their wickedness or they will destroy us in rage.

That is when we need the Holy Spirit to come plants the sweetness of Christs love for us with in our hearts and bloom like the most beautiful flower with in us.

One time while hiking along a trail by the ocean I decided to climb into a cave in a huge rock. Little did I realize that the high tide came all half way up that rock. That night a storm broke out and the waves reached the lip of the cave but never entered in.

So too is Christ there for us to take shelter in during the storms in our lives.

You will never find Jesus so precious as when the world is one vast howling wilderness. Then he is like a rose blooming in the midst of the desolation, a rock rising above the storm.” — Robert Murray M’Cheyne

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Sel’i (The Lord is my Rock) for blessing me with Your firm foundation and sanctuary during the raging storms in my life. Thank you that through this my faith and gratitude for You has blossomed into a beautiful creation of which You are well pleased. I praise You in the name of the most beautiful gardener of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They are Calling Jehovah Wicked.

Differing weights [one for buying and another for selling] and differing measures, Both of them are detestable and offensive to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable and offensive [to the Lord]. How much more [unacceptable and insulting can it be] when he brings it with evil intention? Proverbs 21:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Detestable means arousing or meriting intense dislike in the dictionary.

So many times I hear preachers and others say that the thing we hate the most is the thing in which we ourselves do as well.

In the Christian perspective they are dead wrong.

As you can see from these verses Jehovah hates these things so if , by their reasoning, Jehovah hates these things that must mean He practices these things. That means He is not Holy and prefect.

The more in love you are with another the more your disposition becomes like them and you desire to emulate them. Watch a child try to emulate their father or mother for proof.

It only stands to reason then that what Jehovah hates we hate.

I hate liars, the proud, the thieves, the instigators and mean spirited.

That does not mean I want to kill them, indeed it brings great sorrow to see their lifestyle because it only brings them depression, loneliness, sorrow and pain but that does not mean I excuse it nor tolerate it. When I try to teach them about Christ and they turn their back on Him (it is Christ they are rejecting not you) that is an insult and I turn my back on them. It is a sad thing to do but it is necessary because they are a waste of time and energy.

I pray Jehovah leads me to receptive ones and move on.

These six things the Lord hates; Indeed, seven are repulsive to Him: A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that creates wicked plans, Feet that run swiftly to evil, A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths], And one who spreads discord (rumours) among brothers. Proverbs 6:16-19The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is also a misconception that Jehovah hates the sin but loves the sinner.

That is a flat out lie.

He hates the wicked that refuse to follow His guidance and openly rebel against Him with a holy hate.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me to hate what You hate in a holy manner so as to not allow what is wicked to be tolerated nor welcome in my life. I sincerely request this in the name of the Holy of Holies whom shall judge and reward the wicked according to their evil deeds Jesus Christ. Amen.

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