Is an Empty Life

foolish acts

 

 A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life. Proverbs 13:7 The Message

I remember being laughed at for having a simple basic cell phone. Can it be used to send and receive calls, yes. Can it be used to send and receive tex messages Yes. Then what more do I need. These folks would then laugh and tell me about all the gadgets on their cell phones. The questions asked would be do you need or use them do you know how to work them all they why did you waste all that money purchasing something you will not use Of course they would brag about it being a certain make while mine was from a lesser known (although reliable) maker. Then they would be asked how much they paid for said cell phone to which they would respond that they paid over a hundred times more that I did. So you went into debt just to pump up your ego? Sounds foolish to me. Then they are miserable because they become slaves to the banks paying for an overpriced piece of metal while I am living a contented life.

It is the same with clothes, food and living accommodations and every other aspect of life. They stupidly go into debt way over their head and live a miserable life while I live a simple life walking with Christ and am quite contented and grateful for His blessings of meeting my daily needs.

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its gain. This too is vanity (emptiness). Ecclesiastes. 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Follow the proper leader.

Jesus lived a simple life in communion with Jehovah and was very content. Should we not follow His lead? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Greed and vanity are a sin and there is always a price to pay for following the devils lead

“Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Exaltation unto You oh most sanctified Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for generous provision You faithfully provided me with every day. I extol Thee in the name of He whose cherished blood provides the key to open Heavens door 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

Begin with Me.

work-in-progress

 My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version  

This is the sequence of seeking reconciliation with with Jehovah.   

First you must humble yourself before Jehovah. Do not attempt to speak with Him as an equal or as if you are superior but rather as a repentant naughty child

Then you must have a deep remorse for your sins as a child who was naughty and has brought great grief unto the relative they love so much (I say relative because many do not have loving parents but everyone has a relative they have a deep loving relationship with). This must be done to continue with a desire improve our deep loving relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Finally we must turn from our wicked ways less they destroy this most important of all loving relationship.                

All wickedness has selfishness at its core. Joseph a son of Jehovah                   

We must turn from me first to Jehovah first. Then Jehovah will listen to our prayers. Then Our sins will be forgiven. Then our spirit will be healed first above all others.

“Lord revive Your church and begin with me.” — Chinese Christian

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for redeeming my body, spirit and mind when I sincerely repent unto You. I exalt You in the name of He whose cherished blood made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

This Is a Dangerous Action

FURNACE OF HELL

 

 While you have the Light, believe and trust in the Light [have faith in it, hold on to it, rely on it], so that you may become sons of Light [being filled with Light as followers of God].”Jesus said these things, and then He left and hid Himself from them. John 12:36 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because the people refused to believe in Jesus He walked away from them. This is a dangerous action we all need to comprehend, especially those that claim to be His followers.

Without faith, which means trust, in Christ in every aspect of your life you are useless unto Him and He will walk away from you.

Now, we all have doubts but overriding them is the belief that Jesus is real an a part of our life.

When we are baby Christians it is a common occurrence to have weak faith. Faith comes from experience.

But, we are expected to continuously grow in our faith as Jehovah continuously shows Himself faithful unto us.

To do anything less is to deny Jehovah’s faithfulness unto you which is a horrendous sin. He will only tolerate it so long and then wash His hands of you and walk away. This is the most disastrous occurrence that can occur in anyones life and has Hell for its reward.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to this child of Your with whom You so deeply love. Please bless me to continue to strengthen my faithfulness in You as this draws me ever closer into Your loving arms. I humbly request this in the name of He who was faithful unto You all the way to the suffering, humiliating cross Jesus Christ, my Beloved Savior. Amen

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

Fights Against It.

 

                                                                 

So now [if that is the case, then] it is no longer I who do it [the disobedient thing which I despise], but the sin [nature] which lives in me.  For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh [my human nature, my worldliness—my sinful capacity]. For the willingness [to do good] is present in me, but the doing of good is not. For the good that I want to do, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. Romans 7:17-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is a constant battle.

Although we are Christians in spirit we are still flesh and blood with fleshly desires that fight against the spirit.

How many times have we spoken foolishly with words that hurt others (whether intentional or unintentional)?

How many times have we looked at someone and wanted to jump in the sack with them (yes women do it as well as men)?

How many times have we looked down on another because of their race, nationality or social standing?

These things are said to be natural and they are, for the flesh.

But as Christians we are to live super natural lives.

We cannot succeed on our own initiative.

Thankfully we have the ultimate superpower readily available to assist us. His name is the Holy Spirit.

I cannot count the number of times I call upon Him every day. It is so reassuring to know He is always there and deeply gratifying as well. He has prevented numerous disasters in my daily life.

Make a habit of always opening your mouth to Him first before you open it to someone else Always make a habit of running to Him before you run to your fleshly desires first. It prevents untold painful catastrophes

The true Christian hates sin, flees from it, fights against it, considers it his greatest plague, resents the burden of its presence, mourns when he falls under its influence, and longs to be completely delivered from it.”J.C. Ryle

Prayer: Please JehovahMa’oz (Lord my Fortress) bless me to always be able to take shelter in Your strong fortress when the enemy comes attacking my mine with destructive thought which are repugnant unto both You and I. Please bless me with the proper weapons to defeat the wicked foe when He comes slithering into my daily life so as to remain a righteous child of Yours. I humbly request this in the name of He who used Your Holy Scripture to defeat His foe in the wilderness 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

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
