Governments, big business and news services lies are meant to enslave. Gods word is meant to free. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

I Never Blame Anyone in My Life.
I never blame anyone in my life. Good people bless me with happiness. Bad people bless me with experience. Worst people bless me with a lesson. And best people bless me with memories.
F-E-A-R has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The one will enslave you while the other matures you. The choice is yours.
There are always people in my life who treat me wrong. I am grateful to them because they drive me into Jesus’ loving arms and we grow ever closer because of the abusers.
Our most painful experiences blesses us with the most important lessons in life. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Failure is my teacher, not my accuser. I have matured more and learned more in failures than in successes. That is why I am grateful for my failures. Many times failure is a detour, not a dead-end street.
The problem with pity parties is very few people come, and those who do don’t bring presents. It is time to put on the big girl or big boy panties and grow up.
The more I am grateful for what I have, the more I will have to be grateful for.
When I am sincere, praise is effective. When I am insincere, it is manipulative.
The most important persuasion tool I have in my entire arsenal is The Holy Spirit’s guidance and my obedience. Unless I have a heart that is willing and obedient unto The Holy Spirit, I will never realize the maximum potential that lies within me.
The greatest of all mistakes is to not trust and obey The Holy Spirit because I think I can only do a little. He knows my capability better than I do.
I remember that failure is an event, not a person.
Everybody says they want to be free. There is no freedom. You are either a slave to a devil or an obedient child of Jehovah. One curses with constant misery while the other blesses with Divine love. The Holy Spirit is the most influential person I will talk to all day.
People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing. That is why it is recommended I go to the best motivator every day. His name is Jesus.
The foundation stones for a successful, meaningful life is prayer, Bible reading, having good Christian mentors and obedience unto The Holy Spirits guidance.
May the Holy Spirit guide you to a successful, meaningful life all the way to Heavens Gate. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Smash the Chains.
So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery Galatians 5:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Have you ever seen paintings of slaves being led in chains.
That is what sin is and destructive addiction.
When we accept Christ as our Savior, He smashes the chains of slavery.
Now that does not mean we can go out and do what ever we want, that will just lead us back into the chains of slavery again.
What it means is that now we are free will servants of Christ. What ever Jesus asks us to do is either for our own good or for the good of others.
Not all chains will be smashed right away.
That would be too much freedom for us to handle.
Some chain may take decades to be smashed and some never be until we reach Heavens Gate.
That is good though as it keeps us dependent on Christ. The more He frees us, the more we love Him. The more we love Him the more we desire to serve Him.
Jesus is the best freedom fighter there is. He always has 100% victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Keren Yishi (Psalms 18:2 The LORD the Horn of My Salvation ) for blessing me with Your salvation from terrible addictions, disastrous dispositions and the marvelous freedom that only You can provide. I exalt You in the name of He who is victorious over satan and death, Jesus Christ. AMEN
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Bless Me to Put On
He reminds me that as a believer, I am “made right” by the righteousness of Christ within me. I meditate on my Beloved Heavenly Fathers words (the Bible ) that tell me who I are in Him.
I do not try to battle temptations, struggles, and unseen forces without the protection of Christs breastplate of righteousness covering my heart and life.I need His armor on every single day.
I am secure in the forgiveness and gift of Christ; I am redeemed and set free by His loving sacrifice on the cross.
I call on The Holy Spirit to protect my heart, and am constantly drawn more towards Christ than the luring temptations from the world that try to take me away from You. I am aware of the Holy Spirit’s power at work in my life every moment of every day.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Tsidkenu ( The LORD Our Righteousness Jeremiah 23:6 ) bless me to put on the battle gear to be a victorious child of Your in this dark world. May my victory set captives free from the chains of slavery that their cruel task master satan binds them to. I humbly ask this in the name of my mighty warrior king Jesus Christ. Amen ‘
May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Numbers 6:22-27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

So How’s That Going Now Eh?
“Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10 New International; Version.
I remember in the sixties and seventies when the mantra was: sex, drugs and rock and roll. Being an infant in Christ I knew this was wrong and refused to go along with the crowd. Yes I was laughed at and bullied a lot, but still wouldn’t back down.
Now over forty years later when I go back home sometimes I run into that crowd. Boy do they look ancient. Their bodies are all broken down from living in the fast lane. They are shells of human beings. They have no family or real friends. They have no real purpose in life, yet stubbornly cling to those destructive dogmas. Many of them are either homeless or living in decrepit buildings. I look at them and ask them: “So how’s that going now eh, with your sex, drugs and rock and roll?”
It is not that I am being arrogant towards them but am asking if they have had enough of this life and am willing to come to Christ. They all laugh and are proud of their lifestyle (although I do not know why) and mock me for being a Christian.
No man is free who is a slave to the flesh. Seneca
I on the other hand have slowly over decades blossomed into a beautiful flower for Christ. Yes my service to Him has been hard, but He was and is with me every step of the way. We have planted a lot of seeds all over the world. Walking with Jesus brings a life filled with divine love, joy and hope.
If someone is trying to manipulate you into doing drugs or having premarital sex don’t walk away from them, RUN.
As surely as the sun rises is the east so too will the vile wickeds lifestyle lead to pain, emptiness, heartache and loneliness. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Take it from an old fart that has both lived it and seen it. You are too precious to Jesus to throw your life away.
”If we (freely) admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins (dismiss our lawlessness) and (continuously) cleanse us from all unrighteousness (everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action)” 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
If you are living that lifestyle now call out to Jesus now. He is always there, He always cares. He loves you.
“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him firm in your faith, the God of all grace, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.” 1 Peter 5: 6-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with the wisdom of what is righteous and the strength to walk in its path and to not deviate from it. Thank you for being so gracious as to forgive me when I stray from that path and realize it and repent You eagerly help me to regain my footing upon the Path of Righteousness. I exalt You in the name of He who is the epitimy of righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Get Away Fast.
Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Galatians 6:7 New Living Testament
This is why it is best to get away fast.
Get away from those who are walking in wickedness. They will slowly bring you into the dark side and destruction.
You do not believe me, look what happened with Lot. Read the whole account. First he camped outside of the city, then he was at the gates and finally he was living amongst them. The same will happen to you.
You can not wallow with pig unless you are willing to go into the mire with them. Joseph a son of Jehovah
This is why you need to be more concerned about Jehovahs kingdom that satisfying the flesh.
Look at the ads on TV and your ipad and phone. They all say buy, buy , buy. We will give you easy credit. In the end you end up being miserable and a slave to the credit card companies.
When you are in communion with our loving Heavenly Father you are blessed with abundant peace, love, joy and purpose in life.
There are only two choices in life: be a slave to society and be miserable or be a child of Jehovahs and be loved and filled with peace. I prefer Jehovah. Which do you prefer? Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) always shine Your bright light of righteousness into my life so as to prevent me from straying into the damnation of darkness. I sincerely request this in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen
Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.
That Which is Not
“Why do you spend money for that which is not bread, And your earnings for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight in abundance. Isaiah 55:1-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Jesus is the bread of life.
Why do you waste your time and money on things that bring no lasting satisfaction to your life? Indeed, how many have gone into debt (becoming slaves to their masters, the banks, in a feeble attempt to satisfy their fleshly desires)?
We need to devour the word of Jehovah like a starving man a smorgasbord every day. It is good for our bodies, minds and spirits. Jehovah joyfully supplies this feast in abundance to all who ask of Him.
Where can you find this smorgasbord?
Why your Bible of course. It has a feast of wisdom, dainties of joy, strength for those who are weak, healing medicine for those suffering heart ache and soothing comfort for those going though rough times. It is truly the best meal you can consume every day.
Consuming a daily meal of Jehovahs word is the most nutritious and best meal of the day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (Jehovah our Nourisher ) for blessing me with the most delicious, nutritious meal there could ever be (the Bible). I love to daily gorge myself on its awesome delicacies. I thank you in the name of He who provided some of the best fancies of the meal 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.
Succeed in This Inconceivable Marvel.
For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense. Romans 1:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Have you ever seen anyone that has been touched by Jehovah?
I have seen drunkards become sober and never touch a drop again. Everything else they attempted to smash the chains of their addiction failed miserably, especially the politically correct that says if you just try hard enough you will succeed. Only Christs power freed them from this horrible slavery. The same can be said of other addictions as well.
I have seen those who were selfish and self centered become very loving, sharing and caring children of Jehovah. Nothing but Christs love could accomplish such a feat.
I have seen shy timid folks become roaring lions for Christ with Divine power and and confidence that astounds those that knew them previously. Nothing but Jehovahs power could accomplish such an impossible feat.
I have seen those that cursed and mocked Jehovahs word now preach it with wisdom and authority that amazes those that knew them previously. Nothing but Jehovahs wisdom could succeed in this inconceivable marvel.
“I believe in God like I believe in the sun rise. Not because I can see it, but because I can see all that it touches.” — C. S. Lewis
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the numerous ways in which You have touched me in so many aspects of my life. In the way You burned off the dross and the ways in which You have molded me with expert hands. I exalt You in the name of the best potter ever 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
Is an Empty Life
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
There is No Half Way
How long are you going to waver between two opinions? If Jehovah is God, follow Him! But if Baal is God, then follow him!” 1 Kings 18:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Christ will not accept anything but total worship, there is no half way with Him. Either dedicate your life totally to Him or do not waste your time because He only accepts all of your devotion.
There are many Baals in life that are thieves and steal worship that only belongs to Jesus in many Christians lives.
Many worship sensuality,it pollutes in movies, music and on TV. They change bed partners more than they change their underwear. What is the end of this destructive god you worship? You will not get to pick your poison, syphilis, gonorrhea or aids but you do get to accept in full the reward of following this harlot all the way to Hell.
Many worship worldly pleasures like mobile phones, fancy clothes, expensive cars, and houses they cannot afford, which means they become slaves to the bank to attain these dead gods. Go ahead fool, look at these gods and say: “I love you.” and see what their reply is.
Many sacrifice their souls on the alter of material wealth. They slave away for that extra dollar because they want to depend upon this useless god to take care of them in luxury. Where are they when you have sacrificed your mind, body and spirit to them and they are taken from you like dainty snow under the blistering heat of the noon day sun.
Many treat the scriptures like dung and worship faulty worldly knowledge over Jehovahs supreme pure Divine wisdom. They mock it, call it absurd and foolishly laugh at it. Jehovah has the last laugh as His word confuses you and you realize that those who profess to be so wise are actually nit wits.
Many worship creation (putting animals on equal ground as humans. How many foolishly call infant animals babies and treat them as a child and have more devotion towards them than they do their fellow man or woman?). Oh how they wail when they have to put their gods down because of old age or disease. When you become sick or in need of help to pay your bills where are they to help you?
How many absurdly call it mother nature instead of Jehovahs creation? Can mother nature bring you rain in season, sun in season or snow in season? Yes, I have prayed for rain and the prayer was answered in the affirmative. The weather forecast indicated that mother nature was going to bring us a hot sunny day. Whose god was more reliable?
These are all idols
Jehovah refuses to play second fiddle to any of them.
“Their hearts were devoted to their idols!” Ezekiel 20:16 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
There is only one idol in my life and to which I dedicate my life to. His name is Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Unto You and You alone do I swear my utmost alligence to Jehovah Eli (Lord my God). There is none equal to You much less supreme to You in my life. You are indeed the most cherished of all the treasures in my life. Thank you for this esteemed privilege in the name of He with whom I adore as much as I do You, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
