They are not Christlike.

AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1Peter 3:15 New King James Version

These Christians that go to funerals at homosexuals at military burials and scream that they are going to burn in hell, they are not Christlike.

They are not behaving in a gentle nor respectful manner.

 

They are dishonouring Christ and the Christian family.  Indeed, I believe they will be judged more harshly than the sinners they are condemning.

I have met many who are quick to condemn others while hiding worse filth in their own closets, even experiencing a taste of their venom directed my way. Perhaps they need to remember that as you have judges others so too will you be judged.

It is the same thing with abortion.

As Christians we are to be graceful which means being polite and kind.

When you are a loud mouth and condemning of others you set a bad representation of Christ and drive others away from Him not to Him.

If when you share your witness of Christ others are loud mouthed and condemning do not go down to their level.

 

Your duty is to give the message. If others reject it, politely end the conversation and walk away. Your job is not to judge, that is Christs. Your job is to share the message.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) instill in me a gracious attitude and language that is full of grace so as to bring You honour and to bring the lost ones into Your holy family. I humbly request this blessing in the name of the most graceful one to walk amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Have Given So Much to Me.

GRADITUDE AND CREDIT

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.” Exodus 20:17  New King James Version

covet: to desire (what belongs to another) inordinately Mirriam Webster Dictionary

How much unhappiness is in our world today because everybody is trying to keep up with the Jones?

 

How much anger is there in the world because of jealousy?

Why not look at all the blessings Jesus has abundantly blessed you with?

If you are not grateful for all the little blessing Jehovah abundantly gives you every day, why should He give you big blessings?

In the western world so many people think they are hard done by. Go and live in a third world and you will be jealous of how content they are with the smallest of blessings.

 

I know, I have lived in both worlds.

I love to begin and end every day with thanking my Beloved for all the wonderful gives He generously blesses me with every day.

Lord Jesus, You have given so much to me. . . . Give me one thing more—a grateful heart. Amen.” George Herbert

Prayer:  Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for faithfully blessing me every day for that days needs. I exalt You in the name of He who provided food for the two thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

It Will Be Given to Him.

Christ, WILL LEAD

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 New King James Version

Our Heavenly Beloved does not belittle you when you ask for guidance (you know like: What’s the matter are you stupid or something, oh come on, figure it out yourself, how many times must I explain this to you).

He encourages you to question both Him and His guidance in your life.

The more you respectfully question Jehovah the more he reveals Himself to you. The more he reveals Himself to you the more you love Him and respect Him which will make you worship Him all the more.

 

The more you respectfully question His guidance in your life the less problems you will have which will make you more grateful to Him which will make you worship Him all the more.

It is not a one off experience, it takes a lifetime.

I know this certainly is true in my life.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God is my teacher) for being so patient with this occasional dunce when I am slow to learn. Thank you my Beloved for enlightening me in the divine way in my life. I extol you in the name of the greatest rabbi ever Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Until An Opportune Time.

SATANS TRAP

Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:13 New King James Version

 

This is something for every addict to remember.

Do not believe for a second that if you have recovered from an addiction like alcoholism that temptation will never rear its ugly head again.

The devil will wait until an opportune time to strike you so as to defeat you.

 

That is why it is important to have Christian mentors and support at all times.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

 

That is why it is important to memorize Scripture Verses to throw at him when He tempts you.

 

That is why it is important for you to maintain a constant relationship with Christ so the Holy Spirit will be there to help you overcome the temptation when it comes (and it will).

Christians who try to stand alone are doomed to fall. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

I have used this method very successfully for many years with overcoming alcoholism.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for blessing me with the Divine protection You abundantly provide through Your Word, Your Spirit Helper and the mentors You so graciously provide to rescue me from the wicked ones wiles. I praise You in the name of the mighty warrior king who victoriously defeated him on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Conceives Trouble.

SCAMMERS PAY

Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. Psalm 7:4-15 New King James Version

Behold: to observe; look at; see.  Mirriam- Webster Dictionary

iniquity: a wicked act or thing, gross injustice  Mirriam- Webster Dictionary

Many a times I have encountered scum that think they are so smart. They think they can pull a con job on me and I am stupid enough to fall for it.

To be quite honest, I am very gullible. Most times I am not even aware of what the real motives nor what the consequences are that the Slick Willies are planning for me.

However, you cannot pull a fast one on God. God plans an escape for me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

In the end the wicked end up being burned by their own wickedness and I escape the fiery wickedness they had planned on me. They have fallen into their own traps. The wicked end up enraged and deeply shamed.

 

Then those around, whom they bragged to laugh at them or in many cases are enraged at me.

 

Do you know why?

Because they see and know they cannot pull that wickedness on me.

Do you think they will learn?

From my experience, no, they just look for easier prey.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for blessing me with Your wise protection from the wicked fools who dare attempt to arrogantly abuse one of Your cherished children. I pray that the wicked learn from Your protection of Your children and  repent and come into Your divine family.I praise You in the name of He who refused to fall for any of the evil ones schemes in the desert Jesus Christ. Amen.

I Shall Not Be Moved.

SHOUT IT

I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. Psalms 16:8-9 New King James Version

 

Therefore: in consequence of that; as a result;   www.dictionary.com

To set the Lord before me indicated that we are following the Lords path in our life. The right hand is the one of honesty and strength.

Therefore these verses indicates that we trust and obey the Lords leading and we are not moved by others opinions or motives.

I do not conform to what others think I ought to do but rather to what I know Jehovah has made me to do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

As a consequence of this our hearts are filled with gladness and we know that our glory comes from Christ so we rejoice in His divine leading and strength in our lives.

Our hope is not like hoping to win a lottery (good luck) but rather in the assurance of a rock solid guarantee.

The guarantee of course is confidence that we have a calling, we are walking in that calling, and the Lord provides for us in that calling.

As a result of this we have a guarantee of a permanent Heavenly reward which brings joy to our spirit.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi (Jesus our great Sheppard) for blessing me with a divine calling and the Heavenly joy that comes with walking this path with You. I exalt You in Your magnificent name. Amen.                                                                                                             

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

Please Take It Away.

TRUST IN HIM

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                      

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily. Isaiah 58:8 New King James Version                                                                                                               

On Friday I developed a terrible cold. It was so bad I could hardly breath, was constantly stuffed up and coughing. My head swam every time I sat up.                             

I prayed to my Beloved to cure the cold by Sunday so that I could attend a class on Monday to learn how to use the computer for some programs to enlarge Christ’s ministry He has chosen for me to serve Him. 

                                                                                                      

I awoke Sunday morning with nothing but a little sinus congestion.                                    

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) blessing me with Your divine healing. I praise You in the name of the best healer ever Jesus Christ. Amen.                     

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

Revive the Heart.

GOD LOVES YOU

For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:  “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15 New King James Version

The proud are dammed to Hell, the humble will enjoy Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                    

contrite: feeling or showing sorrow and remorse for a sin.

When we are sorry for a sin we have committed and make amends for our wrong we are forgiven.

Now sometimes because of the circumstances or our disposition we cannot make amends. That is when we need to sincerely pray to Jehovah to bless us with the Holy Spirits guidance and strength and disposition Then when the Holy Spirit answers us we are to be obedient.                                                     

humble :not proud : not thinking of yourself as better than other people

Sometimes we are too filled with pride because we believe we are better than the offended one and we will not lower ourselves to apologize and make things right. This attitude must be smashed and destroyed before any reconciliation can occur.

We will never be right with God until we are right with others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Once we have been reconciled with the one we offended then we can be reconciled with Jesus. If you feel Jehovah is far from you, maybe it is because you are far from Him. He does not tolerate disobedient children but always forgives those who repent. When there is reconciliation on our behalf  then He will heal our spiritual life and revive our healthy relationship with ourselves, with others (sometimes the others will refuse to accept our overtures but that is okay, God knows and that is what is important) and with Jehovah.                        

revive: to become strong, healthy, or active again All definitions from  Merriam- Webster dictionary

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing me from the sting of my confessed sins and for reconciling me unto You again. I am ever so deeply grateful in the name of He whose blood heals my sins Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Who Works In You.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:12   New King James Version                                   

I believe we all have that time in our lives when we ask the question: why am I here? 

                                                                                        

Some go off on stupid treasure hunts for the meaning of life without God.

It will never be found.                                                                                    

When we sincerely request of our Lord what His mission is in our lives He will slowly (it may take years, it may take decades. For me I served Him in many capacities over thirty decades. Each service was preparing me for a bigger one he had in store for me) reveal it to us.                         

Do not forget that Moses was tending sheep in the wilderness for forty years before he received his calling In that time he learned how to tend sheep which was preparing him to be the Sheppard for the Israelites.           

It is in a long slow process that both our obedience and our faith grows stronger. 

                                                                                                  

One feeds the other.                                                                                        

As we obey and step out into the unknown having little faith, Jehovah reveals He is there to guide us. This builds our faith which prepares us for even greater challenges in which we are obedient to His next calling in our lives.                                                                                                      

Once this occurs we understand Gods divine providence for our being here which brings true satisfaction to our lives which is a great blessing.                                           

“It is a vain thought to flee from the work that God appoints us, for the sake of finding a greater blessing, instead of seeking it where alone it is to be found – in loving obedience.”  George Eliot

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present) for being there to constantly guide me on the divine path You have prepared for me to travel in my obedient humble service to You which ultimately leads to the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me from before time began. I humbly thank you in the name of my gentle but strong Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                            

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

It Was For My Benefit.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish. In your love you kept me from the pit of destruction; you have put all my sins behind your back. Isaiah 38:17 New International Version                 

Many times in my life I wanted to go my own way. In this foolishness I was heading for disaster. Jehovah allowed me to travel the path only so long and then brought circumstances to me which brought about much anguish. At the time I called out to Him and cried asking Him why He was doing this to me. I mistakenly believed He was punishing me. In reality He was guiding me away from destruction.                                   

When I repented (which means not only being remorseful but to stop doing those destructive things) I felt clean as He washed my sins from me.                                             

Then came the time to take huge steps of faith in obedience to where he was leading me and to what He intended for me to do.                                                                                   

The process involved smashing the old me like a vase and remoulding me on His divine potters wheel to be the servant He had intended for me to be.                                                      

Each step of the way I am sure it brought praise to His name in what I accomplished for Him which is why He did it.   Yes it was to bring others into His kingdom through me obedient service to Him but it was also for my benefit. When I see those now who stayed on the same path as I was on thirty years ago I praise my Beloved for rescuing me from such horrible destruction.                                                                                               

Gods preparation for greatness in His kingdom is often filled with difficult preparation Os Hillman                                                                       

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for guiding this sometimes wayward sheep of Yours back into Your divine flock that is heading to a Heavenly pasture. I apologize for occasionally being an obstinate child which needs Your firm discipline to redirect him on Your chosen path. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                 

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