It Is Not Yours.

Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15 New King James Version

GODS RESCUE

I am a genetic alcoholic, that means that it is a gene that is passed on from generation to generation. I desperately tried many forms of medicine to conquer this disease, I took medication (both medically prescribed drugs and natural medicine), I tried
hypnosis, I tried acupuncture, diet and therapy. All crashed and burned.

One night when I was puking my eyeballs out in a pail I cried out to Jehovah Ropheka My God, I know this is too strong for me to defeat on my own. It is only by Your merciful blessing
that this terrible disease will be conquered. As Your child my Father I call

In that moment I sobered up and have not touched a drop in many years.

Do you have an addiction that you have tried all the above and failed miserably? Are you at that point to totally surrender it in desperate faith to He who conquers all? The battle is not yours to win, it is His.

Every morning I humbly gratefully and joyously thank my caring Father for His kind mercy in rescuing the child He loves and cares for so much.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for graciously rescuing this weak child from destructive chain that were a living hell. Please my love, move any and all who are suffering from some type of addiction and are reading this to completely surrender in faith Your power to smash the chains that are dragging them into hell so that they are free to worship You in love,
gratitude and respect. I humbly ask this in the name of He who conquered the strongest chains (death) to free us to share in the most wonderful blessing of enjoying a loving relationship with You, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Receive Them as He Received You

Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God. Romans 15:7 New King James Version

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

 

Jesus accepted me when I gave my life to Him warts and all. I was not perfect, if I was perfect I would not need Christ.
So when you have to be around someone who has a habit that is annoying to you like cracking their knuckles be tolerant of them. Perhaps there is a Christian that has a habit that is not becoming of a Christian.

Do not ostracize them.
We are all on the potters wheel until we get to Heaven.

That does not mean that you are to ignore it and let it slide.

Graciously bring it to their attention and try to help them overcome the weakness. Pray for them.

I have seen too many wolves in churches just looking for anything to condemn a brother or sister which ultimately drive them away from the church and indeed many times away from the Christian walk.

Meanwhile the wolves are the filthiest of them all. I yell you true, their very words are that which will condemn them into Hell.
He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first. John 8:7 New King James Version
Now if they willingly continue in their sinful habit and make no attempt to correct it or get help to correct it then they are to be removed from the church until they repent.  That means if somebody is committing sexual misconduct like pre-marriageable sex or
homosexuality and they refuse to repent they are to be refused to be a part of the church until they do repent, otherwise they will lead the weak astray.

If your brother or sistersins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.  But if they will not every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to Matthew 17 New International Version
Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (the voice of God) bless me to graciously guide those who are not walking in Your way back to the fold. Bless me to be tolerant of others little annoying habits knowing I am not perfect either. I humbly request this blessing in the name of He who taught us to be gentle but strong with all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not be a Balloon Head.

We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. 2 Corinthians 10:12 New International Version

LOVE IS

 

Have you ever noticed the balloon heads? You know, the type that their heads are full of hot air as they brag about nothing or no one but themselves? Have you ever noticed how shallow they are? No one is ever as good as them. They live in a pretend world and you know what? They also live in a very lonely world. Of course they are lonely. No one is every good enough for them and no one can stomach being around them.

Of when they are young they can get away with this foolishness but as they get older their circle if phony friends gets smaller and smaller until they spend their final days all alone with each passing moment a living hell of loneliness and
despair.

Is that who you are trying to keep up with?

Here is a news flash for you: you will never be good enough to even equal them much less surpass them. They are a complete waste of time and so is that lifestyle.

I enjoy the peace and joy that I am a child of Jehovah. Even though He does not love everything about me, as long as I walk in harmony with Him, He loves me.

The proud will see the gates of Hell, the humble will see the gates of Heaven Joseph-  Anthony: Green
Prayer: Please Jehovah Sabbath (the Lord of the heavens) whenever I begin to get a balloon head bring me to meditate upon Your greatness so that I will be blessed with being Your humble child. I sincerely request this in the name of He who humbled Himself so that I am blessed to be a member of Your Holy family Jesus Christ. Amen

 

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

How Can Darkness Walk in Light?

That God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5 King James Version

 

CONFESS

 

Do you wonder why it feels as if Jehovah is far from you and you do not feel intimate with Him?
Could it be unrepentant sin in your life?
Repent means not only to apologize but to stop doing it.

Is there something in your personal relationships that needs attention and you are neglecting it?   Is there someone you need to sit down and have a talk with but keep putting it off? Is there something at school or work t or are not doing and know you should be like maybe you should stop pilfering at work on the photocopier?

Whatever it is it is the darkness of sin.

It is impossible for God to dwell in sin.

So how is it possible for you to have a relationship with Him if you are walking where He is not?
Why not repent and renew your loving, joyful relationship with our beloved Father again?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropheka (God our Sheppard) always guide me to heal any and all broken relationships in my life so that they do not impede the most important relationship of all and that is the one with You.I humbly request this in the name of He who paid the supreme price for our reconciliation Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

He Came to Us.

“I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. Isaiah 65:1 New International Version

banana trees bowing for a drink

 

God came to us, not us come to God. God came to us and moved our hearts to desire a relationship with Him, it may have been through talking with somebody, a song or something we read.

Because we are not perfect and God is, we needed a mediator between God and us. Jesus made the supreme sacrifice, bled and died for us.

God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. Romans 3:25  New International Version

Because of that, through His divine sacrifice we are blessed with the opportunity to share a wonderful loving relationship with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Elyon (God most high) for being so kind as to offer Your supreme magnificent sacrifice so that someone as unworthy as myself may share a glorious relationship with someone as loving as You through Your elegant sons blood. I extol You through Your sons name Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It Was Not a Time Delay

But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:5-6 New International Version

 

COMES BACK

 

There was a boy who was abused terribly by his parents. When he became a young man he moved to a city. There the Lord moved him to do volunteer work in a seniors home. There he saw many seniors whose children hardly ever came to visit them, they were very lonely and sad. The young man politely rebuked the children when he saw them. They, in turn sternly rebuked him and informed him their parents were very abusive and unrepentant. Therefore, there was very bad feelings between them. The young man tried to talk with the seniors but they were cold hearted and hard hearted.

Didn’t they, because of their unrepentant hearts, get what they deserved?

The man has repeatedly attempted with no success to get his parents to reconcile and repent. They too have been cold hearted and unrepentant. Now a few decades later, the mans parents are seniors in a seniors home feeling sorry for themselves and some nurses try to get the man to visit his parents. Now it is his turn to gracefully inform the nurses of the family situation. Reflecting back, the man see’s Gods justice works on His time not ours. It was a not a time delay, it was on Gods time.

It is sad to see but it is also just.

These are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10 New International Version.

My question to you is this: is there are relationship in which you need to reconcile but are too proud to?

If so, are you looking forward to experiencing the same rewards of those mentioned (because that is exactly what will happen to you)?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to reconcile with ___________  (write in the name of someone you have done wrong to and have refused to apologize to or of someone who has done you wrong that you refuse to forgive). Please bless us with Your healing love in this relationship because I know that just as through Your son You have healed our relationship so too do You desire for my earthly relationship to be healed.  I ask this in the name of He whose sacrifice on the cross healed our sacrifice Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Here Are the Two Keys.

Here is the first keyconcerning the rapture and those who come after it: “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation Revelation 7:14 New International Version

A gentle loving caress

 

The two important words

In the Old Testament Noah and his family entered into the ark to be brought out of the flood that destroyed the world. Lot and his family where brought out of Sodom before it was destroyed. The Israelites who came out of Jerusalem did not suffer the fate of those who stayed when the Babylonians destroyed it .

So if the tribulation is to be punishment for those who reject Christ does it not make sense we are to be brought out of the tribulation?

Now some people point to the sheaves in Revelation fourteen. If the Christians have been raptured then how will the people hear the word of Christ and accept Him?

Here is the second key to unlock the mystery:  I believe that God will send angels to proclaim Jesus to give the people one last
chance.
Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. ”
Revelation 14:6-7 New International Version

Prayer: Jesus Immanuel (God amongst us) I, with deepest anticipation, look forward to enjoying Your loving companionship in eternity that our beloved Father has so generously prepared for us in advance. I thank you for this wonderful privilege in Your loving name. Amen.

 

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

See the Difference?

That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment Matthew 5:21-22 King James Version

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 

I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sisterwill be subject to judgment. Matthew 5:22 New International Version.

This is why it is important to cross reference our Bibles.
In the King James where as it is missing in the New International Version.

Now concerning this passage

Just because we are Christians does not mean we do not have emotions like everybody else.

 

For anyone to try to manipulate you into feeling bad because you are angry with them for a just cause is destructive to you in your spiritual life, in your mental life and in your physical life.

Holding in anger is destructive and must be dealt with appropriately.  Sometimes that may means seeing a councilor.

If someone intentionally says or does something to anger you (it is noted that wives know the buttons to push to set off their husbands which I heard on a broadcast on Focus on the Family) then they need to get counseling because they have serious mental problems.

From my experience if they refuse to either stop it or get counseling then I stay as far away from them as I can get because they bring me nothing but grief.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer or deliverer) deliver me from the grips of unwarranted anger and from those who intentionally get their perverted pleasure in intentionally angering others. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked away from the scribes s when they tried to bait Him, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Two Plus Two Equals Go

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it
says.” James 1:22 New International Version

 

ACTION

 

Jehovah has blessed us with two ears and two feet. Therefore, we are to not only listen to the Word, but to use our feet to walk where the Word leads us.To do the things the Word has revealed for us to do. 


Otherwise, you are a fool. 
You believe you are a Christian, but do not obey the commands of our king
Jesus.

Listening is passive; it means you just sit there. Anthony: Green    


Prayer: Please Jehovah Sabaoth (God, the commander of the army) bless me to be obedient to my almighties command to serve You. Please bless me with the wisdom, guidance, grace and opportunities to bring glory, honour, praise and the little lost sheep to Your awesome kingdom. I meekly request this in the
name of my mighty king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not Abuse the Blessing

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD PROVERBS 3:7 King James Version

ARROGANCE

Do not be an egoistical twit and be puffed up like a peacock with your blessings.

Do not forget:

A peacock is a little bird with big colourful feathers so too are the egoistical with their pride. Joseph- Anthony: Green

That means do not falsely believe that you know everything in your field of specialty.

If you are good with computers, do not believe you know everything about them.If you are good at carpentry do not believe you know everything about building houses.

I have seen many who thought they were the best brought crashing down by those they thought they were better than.

To fear the Lord in this instance means to respect the Him.

To respect Him means you are to show your appreciation for the blessing He has given you by using your gift for His kingdoms purpose.

So if you have been blessed with being good at finances, volunteer at your church or some program to help those who are not good at it. If you are good at cooking volunteer at soup kitchens or at church socials.

Do not forget: if you abuse it you will lose it.

So do not be surprised if God takes your gift from you if you do not show your respect towards Him.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim ((God our creator) create in me a grateful heart that gladly uses the gift You have so generously blessed me with to use this talent to further Your kingdom. I humbly request this in the name of wisest of all Your children Jesus Christ. Amen.

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