So How’s That Going Now Eh?

FURNACE OF HELL

“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

The Only One Who

DEVINE PLANS

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:8-10 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Have you ever wondered why it seems as if everyone is angry at something these days?

Have you noticed how folks are always changing their jobs so much these days?

Have you ever wondered why folks are such addicts to sports teams, movie stars and musicians these days (it has always existed but no where near to the level it is at today)?

I believe the reason is because they have no purpose in their lives so they try to find purpose in sports teams, musicians, movie stars and participating in charitable events they do not have their heart in to. Of course they find no real meaning to their lives.

The only one who can accomplish that is Jesus.

Without purpose life has no meaning, it is trivial, pointless and petty. Jesus is the only one who blesses us with purpose here in this life and in the eternal one that is to come. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So, why do most folks refuse to go to Jesus for meaning and purpose in their lives?

Because they are too arrogant, selfish and stubborn to surrender their will to Christs. They regret in now but will really regret in in their final destination which is Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalm 10:16 for blessing me with purpose, meaning and fulfillment in my life. That of course is to be Your humble servant. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Don’t Waste Your Breath

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice. Proverbs 23:9 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever tried talking with fools?

They are stubborn, stupid and arrogant.

They are stubborn. You can take them through it bit by bit and they agree with you all along the way. Then you ask them if they agree with what you are saying at the end of the conversation and they laugh at you like you are a fool and they are so much smarter than you. When they refuse to listen and go their own way which ends in disaster it is everybody’s fault but their own.

They are stupid. They know from experience that what they are doing is going to end in disaster but stupidly believe the outcome this time will end differently, which it does not. It ends in disaster. When the inevitable disaster occurs again they blame everybody but themselves. They are arrogant. They believe they are right and everybody that disagrees with them is wrong. They will not allow the facts to get in the way.

So many times I see this in seniors and stand there and shake my head and wonder how they have managed to live this long. When you sit down and talk with them they will admit that most of their problems and disasters in their lives have been because they are stubborn. I hear some uneducated idiots tell me that they are that way because they are old and set in their ways. In reality they have been like that all their lives. I try to talk with them (fools) but if they refuse to listen I just walk away, not wanting to see the disastrous results.

Just ask any policeman or woman how many disasters they have encountered because of stupidity and stubbornness. Indeed there was a recent incident where a road was blocked of because of flooding. A woman refused to obey and went around the sign. Her car was swept into the river and she lost her son because of her arrogance and stupidity. 

The same goes through for any nurse in Emergency Ward.

I speak, you do not listen, why should I speak any more? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God my teacher) bless me to always listen and obey Your wise voice. I know that doing so will avoid a lot of trouble, agony and hardship. I ask this in the name of He who was always obedient unto Your voice 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.

Yes, There are Conditions.

WE MUST LET GO

 The Lord is good to those who depend on him  to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord. Lamentations 3: 25-26 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Yes, there are conditions.

Many believe Jehovah freely gives His blessings to everyone.

That is a lie.

Why would He give His blessings to anyone who rejects Him?                         

Why would He give His blessings to any who abuse and or murder His cherished children?

Why would He give His blessings to those who stubbornly refuse to obey Him?  

When a woman gets pregnant today, will she give birth tomorrow?         

 Than we need to have patience and faith in our Heavenly Father that when He says He will do it, it will be done. But, it will be done in His time, in His manner, not ours.

Patience is a virtue which can only be received by the Holy Spirit to those who walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with your opening of Heavens treasure to share with us Your adoring children. Please bless me with patience as I await Your cherished gifts to me in Your way and in Your time. I exalt You in the name of the most precious gift You have shared with me 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.

They go Together.

laugh at fools

 A rebellious and stubborn people, Who walk in the way that is not good, [following] after their own thoughts and intentions Isaiah 65:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Supidness and stubbornness go together like peanut butter and jam.

I know a woman that cannot eat greasy food, if she does she violently vomits after just one bite. One day we were at a take away and she ordered greasy chicken. I told her not to purchase it or she would become violently ill. She insisted that that would not happen this time. As soon as we settled in her van and she took one bite she swung the door open and puked her eyeballs out.

You see, she was stubborn.

She knew she was not to eat that junk yet insisted that this time she would not get sick (even though she did every time previous to that). That was very stupid because she paid a very dear price for her stubbornness.

How many times has Jehovah instilled in us not to do something yet we stubbornly and stupidly return to our wicked ways. When the disaster comes crashing down on us because we were stupid and stubborn and refuse to listen to Jehovah do we not blame Him?

How stupid is that?

Stupidness and stubbornness is also arrogant.

When I was a tree planter and would try to help the rookies who knew nothing of planting there were some who insisted on doing it their way. Even though, that meant they worked just as hard but made a penitence of money that the rookies did that were respectful and listened and obeyed as they were shown. The dumbo’s blame everyone and everything but themselves for their disastrous planting season.

How many times has Jehovah tried to show us a better way to live yet we give Him the finger and go out and live how we see fit. When disaster comes (and it always does) we blame everyone but ourselves.

The stupid and stubborn are self condemned to a life of misery and suffering. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:I thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with patience and a strong arm when I am a stupid, stubborn obstinate child of Yours. I know You only desire what is best for me and must use strong methods when I am a disobedient child of Yours. I praise You in the name of He who was strong with His disciples when necessary Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Labour to Grow Better

CHRISTIAN SCARS

 “Indeed, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested and chosen you in the furnace of affliction. Isaiah 48:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

He loves you too much to allow it to grow.

That is why Jehovah refines us in the furnace of affliction. When there are (and there always is) ungodly behavior, belief or dispositions in a Christians life.

Jehovah first bring it to His child’s attention and inform them of the way to correct this disease.

When the child stubbornly refuse to obey our Heavenly Father, then He brings afflictions to them to encourage them to reform their ways.

The longer the child refuses the Fathers disciple, the stronger the discipline becomes until it crushes the disobedience in the child. It is not pleasant but it is what is best for us in the walk to Heaven.

I have been through it and every Christian will go through it as well. Sometimes we learn quick, sometimes (like me) we learn slow so we endure a lot of afflictions until the lesson of obedience is learned in every aspect of our life.

“Labour to grow better under all your afflictions, lest your afflictions grow worse, lest God mingle them with more darkness, bitterness and terror.” — John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for patiently creating this child of Yours into a obedient, loving child through many afflictions when I was a stubborn and obstinate child. I pray I never have to hurt Your precious heart by forcing You to discipline me in such a manner every again because I love You so much. I exalt You in the name of He who disciplines those He loves so dearly 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

A Time to Walk Away.

                                                     

A prudent man sees evil and hides himself and avoids it.Proverbs 27:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a time to walk away.

When dealing with stubborn folks there is a time to walk away. They are selfish and arrogant. They believe they are right and refuse to allow the facts to get in the way or to consider others wants or desires. They just shut down and you might as well talk to a wall. Then you become angry and say words you regret latter.

When I encounter these situations I walk away and stay away from them. They mock me and tease me saying I am pouting and laughing because they got their own way.

In reality, I am shutting my mouth to them and opening it to Jehovah. Then if I am wrong He educates me why I am wrong and how to right it. If I am right, He goes after the other folk and the more they resist Him the stronger His hand is on them.

The way I look at it is if they refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit, they most certainly will not listen to me.

The majority of times it will take four or five days until the stubborn souls comes around. It works one hundred percent of the time for me.

Then there is the spawn of satan. They like to find a weakness and then intentionally irk you on to get you upset. Then the just step back and laugh at you. All the while they are pretending to be so sweet and innocent. To just ignore them is the best defense against them.

The funny thing is though, shortly after that someone turn the tables on them and they go off like a rocket. They make themselves look like a fool and are laughed at like they laugh at others.

I walk away when you are in a every situation that I feel I have to yell to get my point across. It prevents a lot of stress and words for which I shall regret later. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) deliver me from all destructive conversations that only lead to disasters. I humbly request this in the name of He who walked away from the scribes and Pharisee’s who only desired to argue with Him 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
