Another twelve months have come and gone
And for a brief moment you need to look back
Not at the year’s events in the news but
At the good you did and what did you lack

Were you one of those who were in the world or
Did you spread God’s Word as He Commands
What can you do through God in the New Year
That you know fits in with His Eternal Plans

It may just be some little things
Such as kindness giving and love
But things like this all fit right into
What God is doing from up above

Spread God’s word when and where you can
Tell everyone about Yeshua God’s Only Son
How He Died so that your sins would be forgiven
By your example show the victory that He Won

Do these things throughout the coming year
God will grant you blessings beyond measure
And when your time on the earth has ended
You’ll reap the benefits of your heavenly treasure



I’d say that I’m somewhat of a dreamer
Does this also happen to you as well
Most of my dreams do not come true
But one of them does as you can tell

I was born on Long Island to Jewish parents
My mom was Spiritual and dad worked a lot
I started writing poems at the age of thirteen
Of the many I’ve written one I never forgot

It’s a Spiritual poem that I wrote in the first year
Some fifty years later I knew what had to be done
The Lord gave me a ministry to write of Salvation
To tell of the Victory that Messiah Yeshua had won

So this is one of my awesome dreams that came true
I’m blessed by words given through the Holy Spirit
Somewhat just like what I’ve written right now
The Lord has given this to me for you to read it

I met my second wife over thirteen years ago
I have yet to buy her a card for any occasion
It’s not been easy they come at the last minute but
The Holy Spirit comes through for every celebration

You too can have a dream such as this
Just accept Yeshua as your Messiah’
Confess the sins in your life as well and
Your life will be filled with God’s Holy Fire

But you’re not done yet as one of God’s Vessels
Preach the Good News to those who will hear it
So that the words that you tell them resonates
And they too will be filled with God’s Holy Spirit

You celebrate the Lord’s birthday
On the twenty fifth of December
This date was set by Constantine
But it’s an awesome day to remember

The four things that I wish you
Are joy happiness peace and love
It’s the same wish from Our Savior
Who is the Lord in heaven above

I also pray for one more thing that the church
Would celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday
For God created the world in six days
On the seventh He Rested on that day

There are many things in the bible
Not celebrated by the church today
Perhaps in time they’ll see the light
Before Messiah Comes Back one day

With all that gotten off my chest
There’s one more thing I need to say
Praise the Lord and Worship Him
And have a Merry Christmas Day



Today wasn’t a really good day for me
During breakfast I didn’t feel very well
So I thank God daily for whatever He Does
For I know that I won’t be going to hell

You may ask me how I know this to be true
It’s because through Messiah I have Salvation
And I pray for the forgiveness of my sins daily
Without even the slightest bit of hesitation

You too can receive this awesome blessing
And I’ll tell you just exactly what it takes
Profess Yeshua as Messiah asking forgives of
Your sins for the Lord doesn’t make mistakes

From that day forward He’ll be with you
In everything you do and wherever you go
Just by praying to the Lord and ask Him
Yeshua if this is to be Your Will let it be so

The time of year has come again when
We celebrate the Festival of Lights
Exchanging gifts for the eight days
Do we have its full meaning in our sights

For those who may not know its meaning
I’ll explain why it’s called by that name
Judah Maccabee’s army was victorious or
Our people’s live would never be the same

For the victory that God had Provided to us
They burned oil offering at the temple alter
But there was only enough to last one day so
They sent a runner for more so as not to falter

The miracle of this dedication came from God
When the runner returned it had lasted eight days
This miracle can also be used as a time of reflection
For the multitudes of people to change their ways

The main candle or shamas is used to light the others
It’s likened to Yeshua who is the light of the world
Who gave his life so that our sins were forgiven
And a direct path to God’s Kingdom was unfurled

Now that I’ve made you aware of the complete story
Confess your sins and profess Yeshua as your Messiah
The benefits far outweigh any questions in your mind
And your soul will be filed with a burning desire


The world that we are living in today
Could possibly not be here tomorrow
And those who doubt God’s warning
Could soon be wallowing in sorrow

The bible says that only God knows exactly
What day His wrath will ravage the earth
And believers that know His Saving Grace
Know exactly how much that day is worth

God warned us in the New Covenant of wars
Rumors of wars earthquakes floods and such
If you do not see theses things happening now
I believe that you are completely out of touch

I did not say that it was imminent
Obviously God will make that call
We know about yesterday and today
But not if tomorrow He will end it all

Your life on earth will be not be a pleasant one
When the Lord finally chooses to show His Wrath
If you are searching for a way out of this dilemma
I can tell you that it is by following in God’s Path

The only way to do this is by professing that
Yeshua is the Messiah and is your Salvation
And for the forgiveness of your sin for you to
Enter God’s Kingdom with joy and jubilation

I can not make this decision for you but
I have pointed out what you need to do
Surely you don’t want to befriend satan
But God has left that decision up to you

The life that we live on earth
Is much too short to be trivial
So place your main emphasis on
The Lord so that it will be meaningful

I lost a daughter when she was fourty-six
It’s a heartbreak that I’ll never forget
But she left me with so many good memories
And yet there are things that I still regret

Even though I know that I must move on
Always keeping her memory within my life
I have children grandchildren and a great grandchild
And especially I have a very Godly and loving wife

Because the Lord is the main focus in my life
I know that some day I’ll see Natalie once again
In heaven with friends and family from my past
On that note all that’s left to be said is, “AMEN”



When I get word from the Holy Spirit
Quite often biblical verses are involved
Occasionally I will quote them directly
But now I hope to have this issue resolved

Many of you know that I’m legally blind
Now I’ve stared to listen to the bible on tape
Even though I have a short term memory
When I’m done I’ll have no reason to escape

I don’t know how long it will take me
I’ve heard people say it takes a year
But no matter much time it takes me
I’ll always know that the Lord is near

What I hope to accomplish when I finish
Is that I’ll be able to quote scripture more
It’s something that was prophesized to me
So it’s something that I don’t want to ignore

I believe that by quoting more scripture it’s
Something some of my readers can’t ignore
It will bring even more people to Salvation
And others to get reading scripture even more

Many of you know that I don’t do Facebook
But you also know that my wife Trudi does
My mission is to spread the word of the Lord
Our God Who Will be Who Is and Who Was

For those of you who might not be familiar
I write verses provided by God’s Holy Spirit
Some for consoling and some for Salvation
For anyone who may have the need to read it

That’s the reason why I wrote these verses
I’m asking you to pass the blog to your friends
Even to the ones outside of the United States
So that the Godly Word I’m given never ends

Please visit and pass along poemsbyjoel. where I post 2 poems each
Weekend and you can go back into the
Archives for almost 5 years.

For those Who may be interested, if you go to my
Bio, there’s a site where you can purchase a book of Spiritual
Poetry given to me through the Lord’s Holy Spirit.

Blessings in Yeshua (Jesus)

Joel Steinhauer



I thank the Lord for every breath I take
For only God knows when all life ends
It may come when you‘re young or older
What’s in His plan well that all depends

Perhaps God will give you a longer life
It would enables you to minister His word
Or maybe you have yet to accept the Lord
Years may pass by before God’s truth is heard

He may call a baby or a youth to glory
Causing families to feel the loss in pain
But God has a much higher purpose for them
In time they’ll see their loved one once again

No matter how much time you may have left on earth
Praise and glorify Him as you pray to our God and King
 Obey whatever it may be that the Lord God asks of you
This enables you to know that abiding in Him is everything

Then when by the grace of God the Lord calls you
And tells you that the time has come to end your years
When Yeshua brings you into His Father’s house
Your answered prayer will be filled with joyful tears

The first thing that I want to make clear is that this is a realistic, but unbiased editorial.

I am not a racist; ‘I have friends and associates of all colors and creeds & what I am about to write about can happen in any of these creeds. However for whatever reason it happens more often in the black community.

First, let me say that both my wife and my sister-in-law grew up very poor, but that didn’t stop them from bettering themselves. Yes, you may say, “But they are white.” It’s more about motivation than it is about the color of your skin. There are plenty of black people who grew up poor or middle class, yet they had the motivation to better themselves.

Since the Emancipation Proclamation and the Civil Rights Legislation in recent years, the black community as a whole, (with the exception of those who have tried to better their situation) has languished in their own world. Letting white America ( in particular, our federal state and local governments) give them what they believed that they were due, not trying to get off their backsides and bettering things to make their lives healthier and more productive. As an example of this, does wearing your pants down to your butt cheeks make you a better person? Many black men have chosen to follow the gangstsa style fashion (which originated in prison.) Another bad feature is the baby mama drama. Although it is not restricted to the black community alone, there are far too many very young single women getting pregnant and relying on the system to take care of them.

As for the rioting that has gone on over these many years, violencece begets violence (that’s not to say that the cause itself wasn’t justified) it could have taken placer as a peaceful protest and probably would have made a better impact on the community as a whole. Regardless of the color of their skin the fear of God’s Wrath needs to be put into all people who disobey God’s Laws.

My final thought in this matter is as follows: We are all LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS, regardless of the color of our skin, many of whom died to protect the freedom of this great nation. Although we live in the greatest country in the world, these days you would never know that. So lets all do our part, disregarding our ethnicity, to bring this nation back to the elite status that we once knew, working together, as brothers and sisters under God, united with liberty and justice for all people, regardless of the color of their skin or their ethnicity. I pray that my words are looked at as an encouragement for ALL people to try to better themselves and not as a demeaning editorial aimed strictly at one particular race of people.

Now that I’ve spewed my personal opinion, there’s something that needs to be said,” Happy Thanksgiving and Blessings in Yeshua’s. (Jesus) Holy Name,”
                                                                               Joel Steinhauer



Give thanks to the Lord God our creator
Whose power is Omnipotent and Grand
Yet so many people do not accept Him
Because of things they don’t understand

It’s quite a very simple concept which
Even some men of science can agree
Although they say theoretically that
They have proven that this cannot be

I am far from being a biblical scholar but
I do believe what the bible says and means
Because I have blind faith in God’s Divinity
Those theories aren’t worth a hill of beans

I wasn’t there to see the things that happened
But I believe what was written and will testify
That God gave it to His prophets to write down
We know that God can’t doesn’t and won’t lie

Those that finally do accept God’s written word
Come to faith when they feel that all else is lost
They can see that God is always there to turn to
Yet still don’t understand the price that it cost

Father God gave to the world His only begotten Son
Whose blood atonement frees us from all worldly sin
But only if you will profess Him as Lord and Messiah
At that moment your circumstances become a win/ win

At this point your life starts a new beginning and no end
For when you pass away God has granted you eternal life
To enter His kingdom with all of your heavenly treasures
Abiding with the Lord freed from sickness pain and strife

You must also understand that this gift does not come free
Daily you must ask forgiveness for sins that you may not see
Becoming a vessel for the Lord and spreading God’s Word
Is not only a blessing but a vital part of your responsibility



We’ll be spending our Thanksgiving
By driving over to Grandma’s house
Not a soul will go hungry
Not even a little mouse

She started preparing
On the night before
If there was anything missing
She sent Grandpa to the store

Everything must be perfect
On this day you see
For it isn’t very often
That we gather as a family

After a long trip we arrive there
The first thing we do is turn on the TV
To watch the Thanksgiving Day parade
There are marching bands and floats to see

Before we begin eating
We hold hands and pray
Thank you Lord for the blessings
That you have given us this day

And we also pray a special blessing for
The men and women who protect our liberty
Please God keep them safe from harm
They understand that freedom isn’t free

Then Grandpa says, “Let’s eat I’m starving.”
The first thing on the menu is soup in a cup
In the background we listen to Holiday music
This always helps us to keeps our spirits up

Uncle Charlie carves the turkey and
Asks if we want dark meat or white
And even with this many people
There will be plenty to take home tonight

Pass the gravy and the rolls please
The peas and sweet potatoes too
The cornbread stuffing is delicious
And may I have some apple cider too

When we finish with the main course
The women will help to put things away
While the men go and watch a football game
Actually there are several of them on TV today

Once everything else has been cleaned up
Grandma serves coffee and pumpkin pie
All of a sudden it feels like we’re stuffed
For same strange reason we wonder why

Before we head back to our homes
There are still two things to be done
First we help to set up the Christmas tree
Then we join hands and thank the Holy One

Thank you Lord for the blessings of this special day
We ask for traveling mercies and Your Grace again
May all of our hearts be filled with Your Goodness
And to this prayer all of Your Children say, “AMEN.”

Without any doubt in my mind, these are the finest verses that I've ever received from the Lord's Holy Spirit!


This poem relates to a very touchy subject
Too many people use God’s Name in vain
It happens most often when they get upset
Proceeding to do it over and over again

What they don’t seem to understand is
That the words are provided by the devil
For he controls the airwaves on the earth
And everything that he does projects evil

Think about these words that you’re saying
Asking God’s Forgiveness for this thought
Remembering that Yeshua paid the price
Cleansing all of the sins that He Bought

Yes it’s perfectly o. k. to get upset with satan
Just keep the Lord’s Name out of the equation
Then as God Listens and He Hears your pain
It will lead to the solution of your frustration

When you’re getting these slanderous thoughts
Removed from the vast confines of your mind
Pray to the Lord and Praise His Holy Name
Leaving all the anguish and bitterness behind



God is doing Spiritual works in me
His word breaks into my sinful way
Destroying barriers fueled by satan
In Messiah I am renewed each day

It is not the easy journey for me
Daily I sin and don't even see it
Yeshua died to cleans my sins and this evil is
Purged through the powers of the Holy Spirit

Not one of us can walk the walk that
Brought the Lord to His Father's side
Yet if we try by giving it our best effort
God's Grace and Mercy won't be denied

Because all life and death is pre-determined
I don't knowing when I'll breathe my last
By my faith and love I'll walk with my Savior
Repenting daily for sins both present and past

In all of my prayers I say to the Lord, "Hineni
Whatever you ask of me each day I will obey
I will serve for Your Honor and Your Glory
Until You Decree that it's my last earthly day"

As a part of the Body of Messiah
I have the promise of eternal life
Abiding somewhere in God's Heavenly Kingdom
In God’s Holy Place free from satan’s worldly strife

In the bible it says that the Lord
Gives and also that He takes away
What’s truly the more important aspect is that
It’s the Lord our God to whom we need to pray

I attended a memorial service today
For a man of immense Spiritual worth
His body has taken its final breath and
His Soul no longer resides on the earth

Dr. Carl Bremer had the Spirit of God
Embedded in his body mind and Soul
As a Chiropractor and a Man of God
His mission in life was to make you whole

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family
Those who Dr. Carl loved so very much
The day will come as he watches over them
When at long last they will be in touch

For now and until that day comes to pass they have
Fond memories of this man of God who healed
And just like him they’ll have a mansion in heaven
For through Yeshua’s Blood their fate has been sealed

There’s a well known expression which
Says that our freedom isn’t really free
Here is just one very good reason why
We have this God Given liberty

The strength of our military branches
Which protect us from shore to shore
Even sometimes giving up their lives
To protect our freedom even more

The thing that we seem to forget is that
The Lord our God gave us this right
If we continue to make foolish decisions
He could very easily take it away overnight

God gave us the freedom to make choices
We must seek Him in prayer and praise
If we continue to do this fervently I believe
He’ll protect us for the rest of our days



The verses that I write come from the Holy Spirit
I just never know when or where they’ll come to me
Like right this very moment the Lord has told me
To give you a synopsis of some verses you may see

God has asked me to write about numerous subjects
Like Salvation comfort and events in Spiritual History
Or perhaps to go into a little more descriptive detail
Open hearts and minds so they can be set spiritually free

Keep reading these verses as you have been doing
And pass the site to others who may have a need
This is one of the many purposes of God’s Vessels
If to do nothing more than plant a Spiritual Seed

In that way you too become one of God’s Vessels
Through the Gospel or however it may be done
Telling everyone who has ears to hear of the
Lord’s Gift of Salvation and the victory He won

And even though satan rules the airwaves on earth
The Lord our God trumps that by ruling over all
There will come a day when Messiah will return
And the reign of the devil will completely fall

Are you going through financial burdens
Do they cause you severe depression
Perhaps G-d is testing your resolve
Because His Economy is never in recession

He had commanded us to tithe faithfully
Give him ten percent right off the top
If you think that your bills come first
You'd better put that notion to a stop

Why not take a moment to reflect on this
Do you want your storehouse to overflow
By tithing faithfully your debts will lighten
In Malachi 3:10 the bible tells you so

Step away from illogical reasoning that says to
Pay your debts first and if there is leftover to give
If you pray to G-d to help you solve this problem
His response will show that it's not the way to live

Why not go to the L-rd in prayer and say,
"Yes L-rd I am listening and I will obey"
And Later as you reflect upon your action
Most likely your hardship has gone away

Then go to G-d with a prayer of thanks
For cleansing you of worldly ways
Walk the narrow path of righteousness and
Be blessed for the remainder of your days



This is the tale of a beautiful woman
Whose many troubles were so deep
And so entrenched that it caused her
To go into a very long coma’s sleep

In her sleep this raging torment
Would continue on and on
Then something happened in a dream
And her torment was completely gone

After all that she had envisioned
Upon her lips a kiss was planted
A man had seen her inner beauty
And thus had become enchanted

When she awoke all strife was gone
God had brought her to a point that ends
Then He gave them a long life together
As husband wife lovers and best friends
