You Need to Give the One.

 But the loving kindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who [reverently] fear Him Psalm 103:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version                                                

To fear in this instance means to respect. To revere means to respect in awe and means to be lovingly obedient. Therefore you need to give the one in order to receive the other.

Think of it, have you ever given something to someone who is not only ungrateful but demanding?

I find the one goes with the other.

Not only are they ungrateful but they demand more and more while giving you nothing in return. Just ask most parents of adult children and grandparents today and they will tell you how that feels.

How much more is it insulting for you to behave in this disgusting behaviour towards our loving Heavenly Father?

The only time you talk with Him is when you want something from Him. You never say thank you and you never give Him anything in return.

Why would He bless you?

On the other hand, there are the children that are grateful to their parents for their help, are willing to help them and respect them.

Ask any parent of an adult child how it feels to have a child like that. How much more delightful do you think it feels for Jehovah to have such a treasure of a child like that?

Do you not think it brings Him great delight to bless a child like that?

Which one are you?

Be respectful to He who has an everlasting love for you. It came at a great cost. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our most loving Father) for blessing me with adopting me into Your Divine family. I relish spending quality time with You my Father, Jesus my big brother and the Holy Spirit my mentor every day. I deeply appreciate Your Heavenly love and You accepting mine. In the greatest acclimation I thank You in my reverential big brothers name Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Carries Us to the Sea Of

following chtists example

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness Galatians 5:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We emulate the one we love and idolize.

As Christians that means we are to transform ourselves to behave as our best friend Jesus showed by His example while here on earth. We are to be led by the Holy Spirit where He has specific plans prepared for us. It is difficult at first (speaking from first hand knowledge) but becomes as natural as breathing the more we are obedient unto His direction. Now take this to heart and never forget it. Even though the ones we are gracious to may be ungrateful (which from experience they are) there are those who are watching that it will have a profound effect on.

One time when in China I used to give food instead of money to beggars (for which the vast majority was very angry for). After about a month I noticed many of the folks around that area were giving food to the beggars instead of nothing. This was a curious behavior because the beggars are usually ignored. Then the Lord brought enlightenment to me that they were emulating my actions. Wow.

And, remember this: “There is no small act of kindness that is not great in Heaven.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

“The stream of spontaneous acts of Godly kindness carries us to the sea of contentment and peace.” — Constance Hurst-Howard

One thing to remember as well as that there are certain area’s we are not to go to because they are unworthy and nothing good will come of our actions. Yes there were some area’s Jesus refused to preform any miracles in because of their unbelief so it would have been a waste of time. That is why it is imperative to depend upon the Holy Spirits guidance. He knows where to best invest your time, efforts and finances.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with joy in my heart and peace in my mind when I obey Your guidance to preform spontaneous acts of kindness to others. May it be a floodlight for others to see Your astounding love. I thank You in the name of He who preformed the most incredible acts of kindness during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

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

And Who is Their Lovers?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

For people will be lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused], lovers of money [impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane 2 Timothy 3:2 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Why do folks have to have the latest gadget? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course. Why else do they “need” a name brand for which they pay exorbitant amounts of money for the name when a phone by another company is far less expensive will do the same thing?

Why do folks participate in charity runs or give to public displays to food banks? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course. If they truly cared would they not donate a weekly portion of their salary to said causes?

Why do folks desecrate Jehovahs creation (which is us) by covering their bodies with tattoos which in my opinion makes them look like they belong in a freak show? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course.

Self love is the root of all evil dispositions in mankind. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The list goes on and on.

These folks are shallow, self centered and insecure creatures.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Philippians . 2:3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I care not what he thinks of me or what she thinks of me nor what they think of me. I care what Christ knows about me and that is that I am His. And that is all I need to know Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) please bless me to be submissive unto Your Divine hand in molding me into the beautiful creation You intend for me to be. It is in Your eyes and Yours only that I desire to be a pleasing masterpiece. I sincerely request this in the name of He only only stayed focused on You when He walked this planet 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

Spare the rod?

OBEY GODS WORD

 I think a better way to say this is :To spare the rod the child will mock you.         

 How many parents laugh at the naughty deeds of a child when they should be disciplined?

Indeed there is a certain TV show that shows home made video’s. Oh how many times I have seen a child throw a temper tantrum (especially because they did not get the present they demanded for Christmas). The idiot parents sit there and laugh instead of disciplining the child.                                                      

How many parents are guilty of pampering their offspring and giving them everything they demand without making them work for it How are they going to discipline themselves when they become adults if the parents do not teach it to them when they are children                                                           

When they become teenagers and are nothing but continuous trouble for you and then you waked up for the need for discipline they will mock you.                                                                 

Then when the child grows into an adult they wail and wonder their children are so demanding, so ungrateful and so selfish.                                             

From my experience this is a sin for which the mothers and grandmothers are the worst offenders.   

When I was a teacher the first rule taught and enforced was respect. Both respect for the teacher and the teacher respecting the child. The majority of my children became well behaved and respectful. And, they loved their teacher for doing that for them.    

Parents, you are a disgrace if you do not discipline your children and the crops you sow from this damming negligence will be nothing but heartache and misery. By not disciplining them you are guilty of leading them down the road to Hell much more that Satan is.                                                              

A life without discipline is a life of misery. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) to teach me and when necessary discipline me so that I may always be an obedient child of Yours. I gratefully praise You for this treasured gift in the name of the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

But Be Wise.

If anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

I live in a farming community. When a boy it was understood that if you wanted to eat you had to work.

Today farmers bring in off shore workers because the welfare bums refuse to go out an do an honest days work. They believe they should be pampered and given everything with no effort on their own behalf. This goes down through generations. Yes they are bums.

Bums are described as a person who avoids work and sponges on others; loafer; idler. They avoid work like the plague, they are idle and always getting into trouble, usually with alcohol and drugs and yes they are parasites of society living off of others because we have to pay for their laziness with our taxes.

Instead of the liberals cry babying about how bad these dregs of society are why not force them to go out and earn their keep?

They do not appreciate help when given to them because they believe it is owed to them.

I know of many food banks and soup kitchens that have closed down because these bums demand money from the volunteers and threaten them if they do not give them money, in many instances the police were called. Finally they could not get any volunteers so it had to be closed down. Instead of using their free loading money (welfare) to buy food they go out and get tattoos and drugs and then cry because they have no food and expect us to feed them. I unfortunately see it all to frequently here.

Instead why not have churches support working families in their own church or of neighbors they know who are the working poor?

The flip side of the coin is these big corporations that are constantly cry babying  (scamming) for money to help folks in the third world countries. The CEO’S make millions a year in salary and the feeble trickle of money that does go to the countries goes to corrupt government leaders. The other problem is that these NGO’s put the local businesses out of business.

Why not put money into investments to help the local folks in those countries start their own business?

The other one is for these big corporations asking for money to help cure disease or to help the local hospitals. Again the CEO’s make millions and why do we pay money for taxes if not to be used for health care?

Be generous but be wise in where you give. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with speaking to me and guiding me to use the resources You provide me with to invest them wisely. I thank you in the name of He who is the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Must Mean Everything to Us.

Therefore I urge you,brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.Romans 12:1 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Most western Christians have it backwards. They falsely believe that Jesus is here to serve them. They only call on Him when they want something from Him whether it is to solve a problem or whether it is because they want something from Him. When He blesses them with their request they are rude and ungrateful and do not even thank Him.

That is not the Christian life.

The Christian live is to dedicate ones self to Christ in serving Him. His will is to always supersede theirs. We are to lay our desires upon the alter and to completely surrender to their will in their lives. After all we were created to do specific works He has prepared for us to do.

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

The Christian motto is to be: Christ first, others second, self last. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When others see our sacrificial works they will become intrigued and ask us why  we live such a life. This will be our greatest testimony and evangelism of all. We are to be a living testimony for Him.

Do not tell me of your Christ, show me Him in your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Christianity must mean everything to us before it can mean anything to others.” — Donald Soper              

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) my eternal King for the supreme privilege of being Your humble servant. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

The Master of Our Passions

“Oh Lord, become the master of our passions, and the creator of our desires.” R. Marklund

Too many times today I hear elderly parents cry that their children and grandchildren have deserted them. The only time they call is when they want money. They are selfish, arrogant and ungrateful.

Who taught them that?

In Asia they are called Little Emperors and Little Empress’. Their mothers and grandmothers spoiled them rotten when they were children. Now they are lazy, arrogant, ungrateful and selfish. They have nothing to do with their parents and grandparents.

Instead of teaching their children love, respect, caring, sharing, and to be appreciative they taught them to whine until they got what they wanted. That they are so special, that happiness comes only from material things. Then they complain because their children grow up to be disrespectful, greedy, shallow, self centered materialistic brats who shun the parents and grandparents.

Most parents and grandparents spent lavishly on these brats while doing without for themselves.

Now they are poor and in need of help. Their children are cold and cold care less.

The parents and grandparents wail about their fate yet it was they themselves who created these monsters.

I was shocked when I returned to Canada from a ten year hiatus of teaching in China to see with disgust the same scenario repeatedly occurring here.

Being a care giver for my elderly mother I hear the same stories from her friends.

Doing volunteer work in a seniors home it is shocking to see and hear it from the residents the neglect of their children and grandchildren. So many of them have been thrown in there to die and never see their children or grandchildren except on Christmas. Yet, they themselves worshipped their children and grandchildren when they were young and now are abandoned by them. The only time they call is when they want money but if the parents or grandparents want any help the children and grandchildren are “too busy” to help.

Perhaps that is why Jehovah tells us to love Him above all others. It is because He loves us more than anyone could or would. He will never abuse us, leave us nor desert us.                                                          

And Jesus replied to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37  The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Idols always break the hearts of their worshippers.” C.S.Lewis

Prayer: Please my wonderful Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a heart that is faithful unto You and to worship only You as You are the only one worthy of praise, worship and stewardship. I humbly request this in the name of He who emulates what it is like to be Your Holy child Jesus Christ. Amen.

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