Boy is That Ever True.

 “There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!” Luke 17:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There was a TV show back in the day that when someone did something bad the main character would always say: “ God will get you for that.”

Boy is that ever true.

Many decades have past since I was a gullible teen (and I thank Jehovah He protected me from the scam artists).

Those that tried to tempt me into doing drugs, having premarital sex, getting drunk all the time just to mention a few are complete and total wrecks. Their bodies are shot, their minds are shot. They live in horrible abject poverty. In their time they lived the high life, many admired them and followed them. They are not so cool now.

You can do as you like with your body but you will also pay the price for it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I tremble at what so many school teachers, homosexuals and others are going to get when they preach their lies to impressionable children.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength ) for blessing me with the strength to resist temptation. Yes the apple looks enticing when it is presented but it is really a deadly poison which destroys, mind, body and spirit when indulged in. I praise You in the name of He who resisted the devil when He was at His weakest, Jesus Christ. AMEN

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Is a Daily Requirement

In For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is not a one off experience but is a daily requirement in our walk with Christ.

Every day we are going to experience a time when we need the Holy Spirits power to conquer fear and speak up when we encounter something that is wrong.

Ask the Lord to guide you to resources to help you in your battle.

So for example research homosexuality and find out all the destructive behaviors that accompany it like syphilis and gonorrhea. How about how there is a lot of depression and anger that is a part of their attitude as well. Learn the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Covenant of Social, Economic and Cultural Rights and keep them with you. You have rights to speak up just like they have.

Then there is self discipline. Not just to resist temptation like pigging out on unhealthy foods but for discipline to resist losing your temper when the wicked ones are taunting you.

Yes, there is love. Love is not a feel good emotion but an action to get in there and get dirty to help someone.

So say a family member or friend is constantly borrowing money from you and not repaying it. This gives them a habit of dependence on you instead of maturing and taking financial responsibility for their own actions. Be loving and help them learn to handle their own money without using yours. If they refuse then let them suffer. That may help them as well (although with some folks they just cannot handle money, that does not give them the right to free load off of you though).

We need the daily portions of the Holy Spirits love, self discipline and power to succeed in our daily spiritual battle. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mauzzam (Psalms 37:39 The LORD Their Strength) for blessing me with the strength to maintain self control when the devil and his wicked buddies are attacking me. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to say no to abusers and scammers. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to stand up for Your truth when those walking in darkness are spewing their toxic lies to the gullible. I praise You in the ultimate super man Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Is a Great Fisherman.

WHEN SATAN ATTACKS

The ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world Revelation 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“Satan never sells his poisons naked — he always gilds them before he vends them.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

This is how addiction begins.

Satan is a great fisherman. He makes deadly lures look like delightful delicacies. Sure it feels good to begins with but once he has you hooked you can squirm all you like but you are his. That is addiction

There is only one way to escape his deadly lure. His name is Jesus.

When you repent of your sins and depend upon the power of Christ, Jesus will smash those chains and set you free.

So if the Son makes you free, you will be free for sure. John 8:36 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

That was the only way I was freed from alcoholism. I was and alcoholic for over forty years. I tried diet, counselling, meditation all to no avail. When I finally surrendered it to Christ the chains were instantly smashed and I have been free of them for ten years now. It was the same experience with smoking.

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Moshiekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16) The LORD my Savior for blessing me with smashing the chains of addiction which satan tricked me into enslaving me.                                      Thank you for Your salvation which lead me away from satans wiles and into Your Holy loving sphere that leads me ever closer to You.                                                                                                                     I exalt You in the name of He who defeated satan on resurrection day Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who Would You go To

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. Hebrews 4:15 The Holy Bible New Living Translation 

There is not one experience you are going through that Jesus has not been there, experienced that.

That is why Jesus is the BEST Guidance Councilor there is.

After all, who better to talk with about a problem than someone who has already walked that mile. As well, Jesus loves you, Jesus cares about You. Jesus only wants what is best for you. Who would you go to with a problem but someone like that.

I trust and obey Jesus’ guidance more than I do any man or womans. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with Divine guidance in every aspect of my life. I praise You in the name of the best Guidance Councillor there is Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

I Believe the Christian Is

complete deditacation

“Let My people go, so that they may serve Me’ Exodus 7:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus does not set you free from sin so you can go out and do what ever you desire. That just drags you back into a sinful lifestyle.

Jesus sets you free from sin to be blessed with a loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Now as in every relationship there are rules and boundaries you do not cross.

Living the Christian life is living a life of discipline that is taught by the Holy Spirit and obeyed by Jehovahs loving children.

I believe the Christian is the most tempted of all because satan will do anything to take those that belong to Christ to Hell with him.It is his greatest joy to destroy the greatest love affair there could ever be, that between Jehovah and His children. But, we have the greatest teacher of all, the Holy Spirit, to teach us and help us overcome all of those temptations. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) – Psalm 18:2 for sending the Holy Spirit to deliver me from temptations. I exalt You in the name of He who never surrendered to temptation 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 are Two Important Steps in this Verse

voice of god

Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided. Proverbs 16: 6 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important steps in this verse.

The first part is that through our love for Jehovah we feel shame for our sin so we repent of it. Jehovah for His part then forgives us of that sin.

“The truth is, living in agreement with God will bring His conviction when we are disobedient. Conviction may feel like a negative thing, but it’s just as much a part of God as His smile. He is committed to making our lives work in Him, and He will use the strength and power of His conviction to let us know when we are outside His will. It may feel bad, but conviction is God at work in us.” — David Edwards

The second part is when we are obedient unto the Holy Spirits guidance He directs us away from places and things that would tempt us to sin. It does not mean we will be protected from evil because it is all around us and sometimes strikes us personally.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness when I mess up and honestly repent. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to guide me along the road to Heaven You have chosen for me to take and for helping me to stay upon said road. I praise You in Your wise name. 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

The Prodigal Cat.

You are precious to God

Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood.  And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living.  But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want.  Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.  And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!  I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”’

 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.  And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

“But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry;  for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ Luke 15:11-21 New King James Version

We adopted a cat we call Sammy. He is always, loved and well cared for but one day snuck outside and refused to come back in. The outside world looked too inviting. He has no front claws to defend himself against the wild cats and cannot hunt.

Christians are adopted and well cared for by Jesus. For some the outside world looks tempting and they leave.

Just as I searched for and tried to coax Sammy in to no avail so too does the Holy Spirit.

Just as I gave up and walked away so too does the Holy Spirit give up and walk away from us when we refuse to obey His calling.

Just as Sammy will be welcomed back so too are wayward Christians when they repent and come back to Christ.

Sammy has returned home and has no desire to ever go outside again. When we open the door he runs the other way. When sin tempts us and draws us away from Jesus let us pray we are as smart as Sammy

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Father that when we stray, as we all do, and come to our senses and return to you with repentance You gladly accept us back into Your Holy family. I give thanks for this amazing blessing in the name of He whose blood made this gift possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Has Experienced Everything We Have.

                                                   

For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize and understand our weaknesses and temptations, but One who has been tempted [knowing exactly how it feels to be human] in every respect as we are, yet without [committing any] sin. Hebrews 4:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever tried talking with someone about a problem they have not experienced and listened to their advice. As you walk away you realize that was a huge waste of time.

Is it not great to know we have a high priest that has gone through everything we have so He perfectly understand when we come unto Him with our problems.

I know for me, He is the main man to go to with all of my problems.

Sometimes He will just step back and allow me to solve them myself because He knows I am capable of it so why be lazy and depend upon Him to fix my problems when I can do it myself.

Sometimes He leads to to righteous guidance councilors (which may be just a casual conversation that Jehovah has arranged for you to meet with).

But the best time of course is when I sit down and talk with Him one on one. Sometimes He answers with questions to get at the root of the problem and sometimes He guides me to Bible verse and the Holy Spirit explains what they mean.

Then the Holy Spirit and I work together as a tag team to conquer the problem.

I am so grateful not only that Christ bore my sins on the cross but also that He suffered from everyday problems so He understands and talks with me as my most confident friend (which He is). Because Jesus walked amongst us, He has experienced everything we have and so much more. That is why we can come to Him with our cares, because he has been there, because He cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me that You are always there, that You always care and that You always bless me with the best advice and help to resolve all of my problems.

In Your wonderful name I give thank. Amen.

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

Not Avoid It.

Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Grant Your strength [Your might and the power to resist temptation] to Your servant. Psalm 86:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says resist temptation and not avoid it. The writer knows full well it is impossible to flee from all temptation so he requests Divine strength to endure the attack of the wicked one.

The evil one who knows his prey and how to tempt him or her.

Sometimes Jehovah will not intervene on our behalf because He wants us to understand we are strong enough to fight some of our own battles.

On the flip side of the coin, He also knows the battle is too great for us and is waiting for us to call upon Him. This helps us to not be arrogant and foolishly believe we are strong enough to withstand temptation on our own.

Steadfast in believing doth not exclude temptations from without. When we see a tree firmly rooted, we do not say the wind doth not blow upon it. John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present through my plentiful temptations that come my way every day. May I make You proud when I vanquish them on my own when strong enough and be wise enough to call upon You when they are to overpowering for me to resist. I humbly request this in the name of He who overpowered satan in the wilderness 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
