My Precious Quiet Time.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.  Romans 1:20New International Version

 

PAPPAS CHILDREN

I love to walk through a forest with a quiet little stream. It is so soothing to watch the fall leaves dancing in the wind with a multitude of colours like banners waving in a parade. To listen to the sweet memorizing sound of the birds singing with child like joy. As I sit by a gentle little rapids all stress is washed away and a feeling of calm and peace envelope every molecule of my being.  The intoxicating fragrance of wildflowers softly gently flowing up my nostrils and into every fiber of my being.                                                                                                   

A feeling as I am one with the world around me is joined with the sweetness of being at one with my beloved Heavenly Father, my precious King and my wonderful Teacher creates a flow that begins in my heart and  comes exploding out of my mouth : I love You oh great and marvelous Lord. I love You. Thank you for blessing me with revealing just a tiny bit of Your infinite beauty and reassurance that You love me and are with me.                                                                                    

The closer we get to nature, the more Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) reveals Himself to us. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                          

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for the wonderful privilege of spending time with You and enjoying Your wonderful creations together. I joyously praise You in the name of He who taught us the beauty of the flowers in the field Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                             

 

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

Until Your Last Breath.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7 New International Version

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

Have you encountered older Christians who like to brag “I did this for Jesus.” or “I did that for Jesus.”

We do not stop serving our Heavenly king until either He takes us to the other side or until He comes in the final battle to take us to Heaven to serve Him for an eternity.

We do not ever sit on our hands and say I have done my fair share.

Only Christ decides when Your time in service is completed.

Another point is that we of ourselves did nothing. It was what Christ has accomplished through us. We insult Him when we take credit for what He has accomplished in us and through us.

Not my will but Thy will be done my Beloved is the motto of every Christian. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Elyon (The Lord most high) for blessing me with the opportunities to serve You and Your divine skill to provide the tools necessary to accomplish Your holy calling for me life of service. May I always be blessed to serve You until my final breath on this planet. I pray this prayer in the name of He who served You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Here is how It Works.

Remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. Ephesians 2:12-13 New International Version

“The Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.” Acts 5:32New International Version

COMMUNION WITH CHRIST

Jehovah loves us but because we are not perfect there is separation between Him and us.

Jesus Christ has made the sacrifice necessary for us to be blessed with an intimate affair with Jehovah.

The Holy Spirit teaches us of our short comings, of the magnitude of Christs sacrifice and that He (the Holy Spirit) is the only teacher who is capable of teaching us the proper manner in which to appreciatively, respectfully and lovingly develop a loving relationship with them (Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit).

Prayer: Thank you oh Holy Three for blessing me with the incredible blessing of the spiritual life love affair You have provided for me. I give thanks in the name of He whose blood made this blessing possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Was It a Blessing?

In order that Satan might not outwit us, for we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11 New International Version

HIS INSTRUCTION

 

One day I felt the Lord moving me to go sit beside the river on a cement walkway to do my meditation while living in Asia. Once there, men and women were constantly interrupting me trying to get me to give them or their children or grandchildren free English lessons. It was explained to them that I was spending time with Jehovah in meditation. They did not care and kept on
pestering me to teach them English. I naturally, became extremely agitated but remained meek (meek means keeping your temper under control.

Then I felt the Holy Spirit to merely explain to them I was meditating and would appreciate it if hey respected that and left me alone. When they persisted they were ignored. When they understood that they were being ignored they left me alone.

Why do you think Jehovah would send me to a place where there was constant harassment?
Do you think it was to teach me to be polite but firm with others?  Do you think it was to teach me to concentrate on meditation and not allow the devil to interfere with it (I am not saying the men and women were devils but rather that Satan was using them to interfere with it)?

Do you think that was a blessing in disguise?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me with an important lesson that is expanded so much in my life. I joyously exalt You in the name of He who never allowed the devil to interfere with His divine life when He walked the earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

How is Your Neighbourly Skills?

“You shall not see your brothers ox or his sheep going astray, and hide yourself from them; you shall certainly bring them back to your brother. And if your brother is not near you, or if you do not know him, then you shall bring it to your own house, and it shall remain with you until your brother seeks it; then you shall restore it to him. You shall do the same with his donkey, and so shall you do with his garment; with s, which he has lost and you have found, you shall do likewise; you must not hide yourself.

“You shall not see your brother’s donkey or his ox fall down along the road, and hide yourself from them; you shall surely help him lift them up again.” Deuteronomy 22:1-4 New King James Version

BE GRACEFUL UNTO OTHERS

When Jesus was talking about neighbour do you think He was referring to the above scripture?

‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Mark 12:32 New King James Version

If so does that not mean that all are our neighbour whether they are Christians or non-Christians? Whether they come from the same country as you or are the same colour? How often do you go out of your way to help another, especially if it means a
personal sacrifice on your behalf?

I have done it numerous times. Sometimes it is challenging, sometimes easy but knowing that I am honouring Jesus always makes
it fulfilling.

Do not do it for any reward or for a show.

Now when men or women ask me why I do it, it is a great opportunity to share Christ with them.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for blessing me with the knowledge, skill and opportunity to glorify You by my actions and perhaps bring a lost little sheep to You holy fold. I humbly give praise to You in the name of He who was gracious to all His neighbours Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It Is From the Heart.

God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” John 4:24 New International Version

WORSHIP GODS LOVE

What is the proper manner to have a relationship with our Beloved?

Do you think it is going to church once a week? Going to church out of duty is not from the heart but obligation.
Do you think it is giving money or time? Giving time or money not from the heart is a form of bribery (here you go God. I am a
good Christian).

Do you think it is by reciting prayers like Buddhists, the Muslims or many Christian denominations? That is not from the heart but obligation.  Saying empty meaningless prayers means nothing to Jehovah if it is not from the heart but obligation.

Because Jehovah is spirit we are to worship Him in spirit (or in other words from our heart).

Now we can do all the above as expressions of worship but it must be done in our spirit with love, respect and gratitude.

Prayer: I love to worship You in love Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for the glorious love affair You have blessed me with. I praise You for this splendid gift in the name of He who made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Fantastic Ever-loving Love Affair.

Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn you.”
Jeremiah 31:3
New International Version

A MOUNTAIN OF LOVE

What does it mean to be drawn to Jehovah?

We will say you are a man walking down the street and you see a gorgeous woman walking towards you. You are drawn to her beauty.

Jehovah draws us to Him with His love, kindness and generosity.

That does not mean He is a genie who we rub a bottle and He gives us our three wishes.

No.

It means a love affair.

Now a healthy love affair is a two way street called give and receive.

So as Jehovah generously blesses us with His divine love, we receive it.

In response we give Him our love and He receives it in return.

The more we give and receive in this relationship, the more we are drawn into a deeper love affair with Him.
Prayer: I praise for eternity and beyond You Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for the magnificent blessing of enjoying daily communion with such the most awesome friend there is possible to have. I joyfully thank you in Your loving name. Amen.

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