Do Not Even Associate With

  do not allow them to control you

Do not even associate with a man given to angry outbursts; Or go [along] with a hot-tempered man, Or you will learn his [undisciplined] ways And get yourself trapped  [in a situation from which it is hard to escape].Proverbs 22:24-25  Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are explosive folks. You can be having a nice social conversation with them and suddenly they will explode in a rage. I have seen it numerous times and it was terrifying, until Jehovah blessed me with the peace, wisdom and grace to be firm with them and inform them that that childish behavior is not tolerated with me so either straighten up or get away from me. If they refuse to obey then I inform them they can discuss it with the police. Then they leave, all the while screaming like a banshee about how I am abusing them (it is not my fault, it is yours is their mantra). 

Do not try to reason with them because there is no reasoning with a fool. All that will happen is that you will get into a yelling contest with them and lose your temper, Then, they will manipulate you to lose your temper even more and they will be laughing at you on the inside.                                         

Never get into an argument with a fool. To do so, you have to go down to their level and they will beat you every time from experience. Anonymous 

I speak from a lot of experience.

In the future I refuse to even acknowledge them (even to say hello or good morning) because that opens the door and they are thieves. They will steal your peace and you will get into another yelling contest. Again, I speak from a lot of experience.

I depend upon the Holy Spirit to bless me with strength, wisdom and grace to handle these poor pitiful folks. Yes some of them are like this because of unresolved issues in their lives but most are like this because they just love to fight.    

The pitiful thing is though, that because they are cursed with this disposition, they have no friends, especially in their elder years.                                    

No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace while dealing with a war monger who attempts to steal it from me. Thank you for blessing me with the wisdom in how to prevent them from stealing Your Divine gift from me. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

Use Them to Share with Others

FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

 Moses told his father-in-law everything the Lord had done to Pharaoh and Egypt on behalf of Israel. He also told about all the hardships they had experienced along the way and how the Lord had rescued his people from all their troubles. Exodus 18:8 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

This is why it is important to share with others all Jehovah has done for you and through you in your life.

Yes it is important to share this with your children and grandchildren but it is just as important to share these events with your neighbours, your co-workers, those who are baby Christians.

With those outside of the family it may encourage them to become members of Jehovahs family.

For the baby Christians it will strengthen them and encourage them.

When others see or hear of the fact that Jehovah is there with us through it all, it makes Him real to them. He is not some make believe God nor something of old that is irreverent to us today. We use our trials and troubles, sorrows and snares to make Jehovah real to those around us. That is one reason they are given to us, so that we will use them to share with others the providential care of our Heavenly Father.

“The little troubles and worries of life may be as stumbling blocks in our way, or we may make them stepping-stones to a nobler character and to Heaven. Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with teaching me that no matter the trials or troubles, heartaches or misery, You are always right there beside me through it all, many times teaching me things that could not be learned any other way. May I be blessed to share this wisdom and encouragement with other brothers and sisters going through their own troubles so as strengthen them through their difficulties. I sincerely request this in the name of He who walked through oh so many trials and tribulations, heartaches and misery with His beautiful friends here on earth 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.

Moral Rot Within a Nation.

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability. Proverbs 28:2 New Living Translation Bible

This should be a wake up call to every citizen of every nation in the world today.

I cannot find one nation on this planet that is governed by Jehovahs morality.

The only way to a peaceful, productive, harmonious society is to govern both the individual, corporate and government to live a life governed by Jehovahs standards. Every thing else only leads to chaos and destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Instead they are governed by greed and political correctness. It seems as of everybody is fighting for their own agenda instead of building their society together. This is especially true of the liberals but the conservatives are not with out guilt.

“When you say ‘There’s too much evil in this world’, you assume there’s ‘good’. When you assume there’s good, you assume there’s such a thing as a ‘moral law’ on the basis of which to differentiate between good and evil. But if you assume a moral law, you must posit a ‘Moral-Law Giver’, but that’s Who you’re trying to disprove and not prove. Because if there’s no Moral-Law Giver, there’s no moral law. If there’s no moral law, there’s no good. If there’s no good, there’s no evil. What is your question?” Ravi Zacharias

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice!) always guide me to behave in a way which exemplifies Your moral law. May I never take one step from it for a step away from Your moral law is a step towards Hell. I implore You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Formula for Success in Life.

 Your godliness will lead you forward,  and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind. Isaiah 58:8 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is the formula for success in life.

Godliness means to imitate Jehovah. It means to conform your life to the laws and wishes of Jehovah. Gods Law (Jehovahs Law) is this:

Do not do unto others as you would not like them to do unto you. This is the criminal law but sometimes you can do things unto others that is not criminal in the government courts but is violating the Law in Jehovahs courts. For example it is not against the law to cue jump but it is in Jehovahs court.

Do unto others as you would wish them to do unto you. In government court you are not obligated to help someone but you are duty bound (which is an act of love) in Jehovahs court. So for example, your elderly neighbour cannot shovel snow from their driveway in the winter or cut their grass in the summer. You are not obligated under government law to help them but you are duty bound (which is an act of love) by Jehovahs to help them.

Love others as much as Jehovah loves you and see how meaningful and fulfilling your life is. Joseph a son of Jehovah When you do this, Jehovah always has your back and will always take care of you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) direct my words and actions to emulate You in all of my thoughts, words and deeds so as to glorify You and to guide the lost unto Your loving arms. I genuinely implore You in the name of He who perfectly emulated You 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

Who Need Your Help.

 Do not hide from relatives who need your help. Isaiah 58:7 New Living Translation

This is something that needs to be done so much in todays society.

In the winter time instead of playing sports or playing video games go over and shovel grannies sidewalk and driveway for her in the winter. Cut her grass for her in the summer, rake the leaves for her in the fall. Take her grocery shopping, help with the housework.

If you see someone has problems with money, especially the younger ones, help them make a budget.

If a relative is having homework problems spend time with them and help them.

If someone is having personal problems sit and listen to them and share your experiences with them to help them.

Now that does not give them carte blanche to abuse you like continuously free loading off of you because they spend their money foolishly or refuse to get a job because they are lazy. That is hurting them and preventing them from maturing.

And, being a Christian, everyone that is a Christian is a member of the family.

It is the Christian duty (which is an act of love) to help those who are in need of help (and not waste time nor resources on those who are too lazy to help themselves). Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) bless me to be able to distinguish between those in need and those who are leeches. Please bless me with the time, resources and skill to help those in need to not only alleviate their needs but to bring them ever closer to You. I virtuously implore You in the name of He who has enabled me to receive the keys to Heavens Gate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Using these Effective Christian Weapons

 Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life. Proverbs 21:21 New Living Translation

There was a comical saying in the seventies that said the devil made me do it, in reference to why we do bad things.

That is a lie.

The devil tempts us but it is in our own free will that knowingly, willingly commit the sin.

When temptation comes our way we should use the Christian weapons Jehovah supplies us with for victory.

Number one on the list is common sense. The number one rule is that if you are single, or married never be alone with anyone of the opposite sex (unless they are your husband or wife). You can be alone in the library or in a restaurant but never in a place where there is no one else there.

Number two is if Jesus would not be there neither should you be. So if your buddies are doing drugs or going to the bar to pick up babes (or hunks if they are women) do you think Jesus would join them for that activity?

Number three is to memorize victory verses so when the devil temps you like he did Jesus in the wilderness we, like Jesus use Bible verses to defeat our opponent. And yes that is very effective from personal experience.

Number four is to have a close relationship with Jehovah so that when the temptation is too strong for you, your first defence will be to call upon our mighty Heavenly Daddy who will come to our rescue. Again speaking from personal experience this is very effective. Using these effective Christian weapons will bring life to us that is close to our Heavenly Father and oh what a marvellous life that is.

“Only he who flings himself upward when the pull comes to drag him down, can hope to break the force of temptation. Temptation may be an invitation to hell, but much more is it an opportunity to reach heaven. At the moment of temptation, sin and righteousness are both very near the Christian; but, of the two, the latter is the nearer.” — Charles H. Brent

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chereb (Lord the is my Sword) for blessing me with the ultimate weapon to defeat satan and his minions with that is always victorious. I exalt You in the name of the unbeatable warrior King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Removing Obstacles that Block Your Way

 Every man did what was right in his own eyes. Judges 17:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

That sounds a lot like today.

When you study history it is like a never ending circle.

First folks join together and work as a community and are respectful towards Jehovah. Then, when they begin to prosper they forget Jehovah. Because they forget Jehovah they have no spiritual guidance and fall into a very degenerative lifestyle which ultimately destroys their society.

Read the Book of Judges in the Bible and then study any history you want, European, Asian, Middle East, African. They are all the same.

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Proverbs 3:5-6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Now this is the wise man and womans choice of life. We trust in Jehovah more and more as we get closer and closer to Him in a loving obedient life. For some it comes quickly but for most of us it takes decades to develop this trust (it is not Jehovahs fault nor ours. Being humans it takes time to develop this lifestyle). He never leads us wrong. We rely upon Jehovah for our daily portion of spiritual, mental and physical nourishment. He always supplies us. Because we are human our intellect is inferior to Jehovahs. The wise man and woman rely upon Him for guidance. He leads us away from disaster and towards victory.

I acknowledge Him to others when they ask why I live the way I do. I know with all my heart He loves me so therefore He only wants what is best for me.

The more time we spend with our Beloved, the more we are in tune with His voice and recognize it over the sly serpent (satan). The result of this is a fulfilling life of love, peace, joy, purpose and meaning. What more could one ask for in life? Trust Jehovah, He will never lead you wrong. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for always being honest with me in guiding me down the proper path to take in life. It has prevented a lot of unnecessary hardship, sorrow and pain. I venerate You in the name of my Divine Heavenly Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day
