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

Stubbornness Come in Two Forms.

                                                        

Stubbornness comes in two forms.

Form number one is arrogance or another word for it is pride. Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do the I did or I said’s drive you bonkers?

They do me.

They cannot say a sentence without pumping themselves up. They are so polluted with pride it is a stench for me to be round them. They foolishly believe the whole world revolves around them.

And, you know what?

They are very shallow and fragile. Anything that pricks their pride and they get deflated like a punctured balloon they pull a temper tantrum. I have seen many an adult become indignant and insulting to anyone who brings them down to earth. They feel as if a capital offense has been committed to them. They are very immature. They pull a lot of pouty pouts. I have seen some fall to the ground and pound their fists and kick their feet into the air while screaming like a spoiled little brat (yes I am talking about adults).

Steer clear of these creatures less you learn their ways and fall into the same disgrace as they do. Form number two is greed.

“Because he knew no quietness or calm within him [because of his greed], He does not retain anything he desires. Job 20:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

These destructive creatures do not care who they hurt as long as they get what they want. The problem of course though is that most times it back fires on them. I have met many that were warned that to attempt to do a certain thing would lead to disaster. Their response is: “Who are you to try to tell me what to do?”. They then proceed in the venture only to be met with the forewarned disaster. Their response is always the same. They blame everyone and everything around them rather than be mature and take the responsibility for it themselves.

Avoid these creatures at all cost as they will lead you into disaster and disaster.

Pride come in two forms. Form number one is arrogance. Form number two is greed. They both end in disaster. Jospeh a son of Jehovah

Finally as they age they will find that they will be fighting their own bodies which results in constant pain. I have seen many elders refuse to accept the restrictions on their bodies only to end up in bed in intense pain. The amazing thing is though is that they never learn.

Like a dog that returns to his vomit Is a fool who repeats his foolishness. Proverbs 26:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Then when they are put into seniors homes because they refuse to listen and obey their doctors instructions, they constantly fight a losing battle with the staff. They are continuously trying to tell the staff what to do while refusing to co-operate with them. They become resentful because they cannot have their own way and pout. The result of this is that no one want to be around them so they just sit there crying because they are so lonely all day.

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth ( Lord Strong -Mighty ) bless me with the strength to burn off all stubbornness in my disposition. Please come and reprimand me when I am being foolish by being stubborn. I sincerely request this so important request in the name of He who was never stubborn 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

You will Condemn.

cannot-outrun

  “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 Amplified Version.

Have you ever been set up by someone ?

You know , they are angry with you with out just cause or they are jealous of you so they set you up to embarrass you or to shame you in front of a crowd weather it be at school ,at work, at a family get together or in a social setting.

They think they are so smart don’t they ?

The trap the evil ones lay for the righteous the wicked will fall into themselves. Joseph- Anthony ;Green

We who are of Christ know that the Holy Spirit dwells with in us. We must pray for wisdom ,gracefulness, meekness and humbleness.

When confronted with their evil schemes the Holy Spirit will bless us with such to shoot them down and the shame shall come pouring down upon their heads like fiery coals.

I have read articles on how to deal with narcissists and stubborn folks which have helped me enormously. It is difficult to put into action at first but with practice it hones my skills and confidence. We are filled with peace and calm, wisdom and security during the confrontation.

Now we are not to become like them and be cruel, vindictive or arrogant. Then we shame our Beloved in Heaven.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) for blessing me with Your incredible providence to escape the traps the wicked ones so arrogantly prepare for me in their evil schemes which they fall into themselves . I praise You in the name that escaped the wicked Pharasee’s traps Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Does Not Prosper.

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. Proverbs 28:23 New International Version

In my decades on this earth one thing I have noticed is the numerous times there are people who attempt at a business or other ventures and constantly fall flat on their faces.

Then there are the ones that succeed for a while but then everything comes crashing down on them.

 

One thing they all have in common are they are snakes in the grass I would not trust them with a nickel. They are liars, cheats, schemers, thieves connivers, deceivers and smooth talkers.

The other types are the ones who mess up and swallow their pride and repent, many times publicly, and they get back on their feet. They may not be a success in the worlds eyes but they are in the Christians because they have peace and contentment in their lives that can only come from Jehovahs forgiving grace. They usually are not materially wealthy but are the type who have integrity and peace in their lives.

They may still have to pay for their deeds like broken relationships or doing time for committing a crime but they have peace and contentment from repentance.

I once met a fellow who was an assassin for the Irish Republican Army who repented in prison and became a fiery preacher. He oozed of peace and contentment that was only possible from repenting of his ways but he still lived every day with what he did when he was the assassin. He could never return to his country and will never see his family again.

I have personally found that when I messed up but got my back up and refused to repent there was nothing but trouble in my life. When I repented the peace, love, joy and contentment that comes from Jehovahs grace seeped back into my daily life.

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH-Ropheka (The Lord Who Heals) for blessing me with Your awesome grace and mercy to wash away the pungent infection that sin brings into my life when I humbly and sincerely repent unto You and those I have committed offense unto. I appreciate this both physical and spiritual kindness and thank you in the name of He whose precious blood made it possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

We Are a Stiff-Necked People.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

 

“If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your inheritance.” Exodus 34:9 New King James Version                                                                                                                                               

Stiff necked:  having or showing the insulting attitude of people who think that they are better, smarter, or more important than other people, refusing to change your ideas or to stop doing something, difficult to deal with.  Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

Common, admit it, you are stiff necked too. We all are.                                  

I used to be very stiff necked at times.  And then, I was blessed with the cure.

                                                             

His name is: The Holy Spirit.                                                                             

Many times He convicted me that I was being stiff necked and I admitted it. When I tried on my own to conquer the thing I was stiff necked in I failed. Finally in desperation I cried out in desperation:”My God, I cannot conquer this thing!” It was then that the power of the Holy Spirit helped me conquer it. Notice He did not conquer it but rather He HELPED me conquer it. We cannot sit on our laurels and expect Him to do all the work. We must put forward and effort and work with Him to conquer it.                                                                                                                 

Now sometimes He will conquer it on His own like an addiction.                    

It was only by His power that He freed me from alcoholism. I was a biological alcoholic and no matter what I tried to conquer the drinking problem I fell flat on my face. It was only when I totally surrendered to Him that he blessed me with smashing the chains that help me in a living Hell and was dragging me into a permanent one.                                                               

It is also why we need to read our Bibles, talk with Jehovah and be obedient unto Him. Otherwise we will fall back into the destructive habits.                                                                                                           

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for delivering me from the destructive habits that were making my life a living Hell and slowly dragging me into a permanent one. Thank you for working with me to conquer those habits which You find disgusting. Thank you for pricking my conscience when I begin to fall back into some of my old destructive ways. I thank you in the name of the greatest Deliverer Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
