Compare Yourself To.

NO CONCIET

 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is pride—but the worship of self?

Why do you think folks have themselves covered with tattoos but as an act of self worship?

Why do you think social media is so reverent in society today except as a means to puff up ones own importance? The list goes on and on.

Compare yourself to Christ and then see how good you are. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why are folks so reluctant to give their time and labour for the good of others, and the glory of God? Because they want it for ease, and the enjoyment of self! As well, they want it for bragging rights of look at all the toys I have.

Imagine all the good we could accomplish if everyone gave one tenth of their earnings to a worthy cause. What good are your toys compared to the riches of Heaven stored up for the dutiful good stewards?

When we are Christians we put Christ first, others second and self last. It is hard and most times we receive little recognition from others for our efforts, even those we help. 

A warning for those considering becoming the Heavenly Kings servants, when you become a servant unto Christ expect a lot of suffering. Indeed, Christ spoke more of suffering than He did pleasures of being His servants.

Being a servant unto Christ is the hardest endeavor you shall ever participate in but it has eternal Heavenly rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever)for the wonderful privilege of being a humble servant to such a magnificent Heavenly King. I give all praise in Your awesome 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

There is No Half Way

FURNACE OF HELL

How long are you going to waver between two opinions? If Jehovah is God, follow Him! But if Baal is God, then follow him!” 1 Kings 18:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Christ will not accept anything but total worship, there is no half way with Him. Either dedicate your life totally to Him or do not waste your time because He only accepts all of your devotion.

There are many Baals in life that are thieves and steal worship that only belongs to Jesus in many Christians lives.

Many worship sensuality,it pollutes in movies, music and on TV. They change bed partners more than they change their underwear. What is the end of this destructive god you worship? You will not get to pick your poison, syphilis, gonorrhea or aids but you do get to accept in full the reward of following this harlot all the way to Hell.

Many worship worldly pleasures like mobile phones, fancy clothes, expensive cars, and houses they cannot afford, which means they become slaves to the bank to attain these dead gods. Go ahead fool, look at these gods and say: “I love you.” and see what their reply is.

Many sacrifice their souls on the alter of material wealth. They slave away for that extra dollar because they want to depend upon this useless god to take care of them in luxury. Where are they when you have sacrificed your mind, body and spirit to them and they are taken from you like dainty snow under the blistering heat of the noon day sun.

Many treat the scriptures like dung and worship faulty worldly knowledge over Jehovahs supreme pure Divine wisdom. They mock it, call it absurd and foolishly laugh at it. Jehovah has the last laugh as His word confuses you and you realize that those who profess to be so wise are actually nit wits.

Many worship creation (putting animals on equal ground as humans. How many foolishly call infant animals babies and treat them as a child and have more devotion towards them than they do their fellow man or woman?). Oh how they wail when they have to put their gods down because of old age or disease. When you become sick or in need of help to pay your bills where are they to help you?

How many absurdly call it mother nature instead of Jehovahs creation? Can mother nature bring you rain in season, sun in season or snow in season? Yes, I have prayed for rain and the prayer was answered in the affirmative. The weather forecast indicated that mother nature was going to bring us a hot sunny day. Whose god was more reliable?

These are all idols

Jehovah refuses to play second fiddle to any of them.

“Their hearts were devoted to their idols!” Ezekiel 20:16 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There is only one idol in my life and to which I dedicate my life to. His name is Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Unto You and You alone do I swear my utmost alligence to Jehovah Eli (Lord my God). There is none equal to You much less supreme to You in my life. You are indeed the most cherished of all the treasures in my life. Thank you for this esteemed privilege in the name of He with whom I adore as much as I do You, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Talk About Arrogant.

 Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive.  And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’  Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there.  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).”’ Luke 12:16-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Talk about arrogant.

This guy takes full credit while giving Jehovah none.

Did the rich man make the land fertile and productive or did Jehovah?

Than should the rich man not have given thanks unto Jehovah and share with the less fortunate as Jehovah shared with him?

Who determines when we die, the rich man or Jehovah?

Than should he not have used his time wisely to store up treasures in Heaven rather that sit on his laurels?

Should he not have given unto his community as Jehovah greatly gave unto him?

Did the rich man celebrate his good fortune with others or did he greedily keep his parties for himself?

Should we not share with others our good fortune as Jehovah as blessed us with them?

How about you?

Do you share in your blessings ,both great and small, with others or do you greedily keep them for yourself?

Do you publicly praise Jehovah for His graciousness towards you or do you brag about it as if it was you who did the accomplishment?

Do you waste your retirement years going on cruises or other luxuries or do you take this opportunity to share your time and wisdom with the younger generation?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with all of the abundant mental, physical and spiritual gifts provided for me on a daily basis.

May these be used as an opportunity to give thanks to You both privately and publicly and to be used to help those in Your family that are in need.

I joyfully give all praise unto You and request this blessing in the name of He who always used His Divine gifts for the benefit of others Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Ministering to the Needs Of 

                             

For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown for His name in ministering to [the needs of] the saints (God’s people), as you do. Hebrews 6:10  Holy Bible Amplified Version

Someone once told me that everything we do, we do for greed. I was every offended by this. Now, in retrospect I completely agree with Him.

However, what kind of greed do you have?

For me I am extremely greedy to minister to both those in Christs Kingdom.

The reason for this greed is because I know it makes my Heavenly Father happy and I am greedy to fill His precious heart with joy by my actions and words because I love Him so extremely much.

Yes I am aware that He richly blesses those who serve with joy and eagerness in their hearts, minds and bodies for which there is deep gratitude in this child of Gods heart.

But, first and foremost is the greed to make my Heavenly Beloved joyful just because of the deep loving relationship we share and the lust for it to go ever deeper and deeper with every beat of my heart.

Heavenly wealth are those that flow from the heart towards Jehovah and our fellow man and woman. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with bountiful opportunities to serve You by ministering to the needs of others. It brings me ecstatic joy to please You my most Beloved. I gleefully praise You in the name of the best minister You have blessed me with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Have Placed In.

                                 

 For I have taken all this to heart, exploring and examining it all, how the righteous (those in right standing with God) and the wise and their deeds are in the hands of God. Ecclesiastes 9: 1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have lived the good life in worldly standards and had it all taken from me. It was devastating.

It took many decades to learn that the blessings from Jehovah, which are spiritual, are indeed the greatest wealth of all. They have held me in good steed through many storms in life. They have guided me away from disasters. They have enriched me with a close loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Not only do I still possess them but the Lord is continually expanding them. They are truly the greatest wealth of all.

“I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always abundantly providing for me. I exalt You in the name of Your greatest provision for salvation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Than You Thought.

                                      

For You meet him with blessings of good things. Psalm 21:3 Holy Bible New King James Version

There is an ad on TV that says:” You are richer that you thought.”

Truer words have never been said.

Every day make a list of all the blessings

Jehovah has blessed you with both big and small. Reflect on them at the end of the day and thank Jehovah for them (thank Him as He blesses us through out the day as well). It is a great way to get to sleep. At the end of the month read your listings and you will be surprised at just how wealthy you are.

One of the by products of this is just how much more of a positive attitude you have and how diminished your problems have become and how little of a Negative Nellie you are and how much of a Positive Pete you are.

“The poor man thought, “If I had a penny for every time I knew the Lord blessed me I would be a millionaire.” Then he continued, “But if I had a penny for evertime the Lord actually blessed me, I would be the richest man in the world…and I believe I already am.”” — Bob Smith

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for abundantly supplying all my daily needs both spiritual and physical. I praise You in the name of my Savior whom I need so very much Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He was Disgusting to Society

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a shepherd in Davids time he was disgusting to them. Shepherds were dirty, smelly and uncouth. But, Jehovah saw what was in his heart.

The same is true in us. You do not need to be a supermodel, wear all the latest designer clothes, attend a premier college or university or have a fat wallet to be used by Jehovah. It is your heart He is looking for.

When I was young I was poor, very shy and constantly sick. Those that knew me then would never have believed the manner in which Christ used me and the incredible transformation He has accomplished in me.

The same is true for everyone, including you.

It does not matter your appearance, your social graces, your intelligence or any other factor in your life. When your heart is receptive unto Christ He joyously embraces you into His Divine family.

The only requirement to be of service unto Christ our King is an obedient, receptive heart. Give Him that and watch the amazing things He does in your life and through your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not reject the worst sinners like drunks or drug addicts as unworthy to become Jehovahs children because it is the worst sinners who make the best saints. This is because they appreciate the Hell the Holy Spirit has delivered them from.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying a wicked sinner like me into Your Holy family.

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

We Need Not Look.

 Woe to him who piles up stolen goods and makes himself wealthy by extortion!Habakkuk 2:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We need not look to gangsters or big corporations or big government to see extortion.

Just look at families.

How many ex-wives use the children for extortion with their ex-husbands? “ If you want to see the children you must do this for me first.” Speaking with a lot of divorced men the women quite frequently use extortion on the. If you do not believe me go speak with some divorced men and find out for yourself.

How many children use their grandchildren for extortion with their parents? If you want to see the grandchildren you must first do this for me ( usually it involves the grandparents having to give their children money if they want to see their grandchildren. I saw it numerous times in my own family).

Parents and grandparents in seniors homes have their children and or grandchildren come to visit them only because they want money. If you do not give me money I do not have the time to come and visit you. Doing volunteer work in seniors for a number of years it is quite common to see this.

Jehovah hates these disgusting things and the Law of Reciprocation clearly states that it will come back on you seven times worse than what you did to them.

Doing these horrible things is one of the worst sins you can commit and Jehovah hates you for it.

The boastful and the arrogant will not stand in Your sight; You hate all who do evil. Psalm 5:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) bless me with wisdom, honesty, integrity and respect for all others as You have been with me. I humbly beseech You in the name of the most honest and integral man to have ever walked the earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What is the Differance?

 

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. John 14:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is the differance?

The peace Jesus blesses us with is that we have a loving Father in Heaven that cares about us and cares for us. No matter how fierce the storms we know He is walking through them with us. It can never be taken from us.

The peace the world looks for is being financially secure. That can be taken from you in a moment with a job loss or bankruptcy. A house, which can be destroyed by fire or natural disaster. Our health, which can be taken from us with one diagnosis from the doctor. Our wits which can be taken from us in an accident or with something like Alzheimer Disease. And of course what good does all this material wealth do for us when we age and our bodies and minds break down, when all of our loved ones and friends have either deserted as we live out our final days in a seniors home where each moment is a living hell of loneliness and sadness?

With us Christians we know Jesus will never desert us and always loves and comforts us.

Doing a lot of volunteer work at a seniors home and watching my parents generation in their elder years, I have seen both sides of this coin and know it to be true.

What good does this material wealth do you as you are terrified as you are drawing our final breath and are going into the unknown (but in reality you know you are going into Hell)?

Christians are blessed with peace in our final breath with the knowledge that our Loving Father will send an angel to us to guide us to our Heavenly home while those in the world are terrified as they know there will be an angel to drag them to the gates of Hell and throw them into eternal damnation and torment.

Doing a lot of volunteer work at a seniors home and watching my parents generation in their elder years, I have seen both sides of this coin and know it to be true.

When we live moment by moment in Christs love, that is our golden years. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace through all my trials sorrows and tribulations. It is not only a calming peace and comforting peace but a peace that blesses with strength to not only endure but to prosper. I exalt you in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Duty or Obligation?

But if a widow has children or grandchildren [who are adults], see to it that these first learn to show great respect to their own family [as their religious duty and natural obligation], and to compensate their parents or grandparents [for their upbringing]; for this is acceptable and pleasing in the sight of God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am a live in caregiver for my elderly mother.

Every month she extravagantly gives money to her elder son and grand daughter, even though they do not life a finger to help with the yard work, house work or care of mom.

I do all the work with no help but she gives miserly to me.

One day we had a big fight where I told her to tell them to get their lazy butts down here and help out. I was fed up and ready to leave. I prayed in my tent (the only place where I can get peace) for guidance on where to go.

The Lord gave a one word reply: STAY.

I decided  to stay but that I was going to go on strike until there was a change around here and that mom starts paying me for my work so that I can build a nest egg for when she passes on I will not be left empty handed.

Jehovah asked me a three word question: Duty or obligation?

Duty is an act of love while obligation is an exchange of goods. I chose duty unto my Jehovah and my mother. Jehovah questioned me if I trusted Him to always provide for me or if I chose to trust in a bank account?

Obviously I chose Him.

In the course of the next three days He kept on reassuring me through Bible verses and daily Christian devotionals sent to my email that not only will He always provide for me but that I shall be abundantly rewarded for my service unto Him.

Now I could care less about the inequality in the blood family because I know that my Heavenly family shall always stand beside me and richly reward me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless me to always keep my mind and heart concentrated upon fulfilling my duty to my Heavenly King no matter how foolish it looks to the world. I know in my heart of heart that just doing so brings joy to You and that is the most important wealth in my life . I am also assured of Your Divine care for my in my service to you and that is the best investment of all. I thank You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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