Only If You Are.

HUNGERY FOR GOD

You will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:29 New King James Version

Do you notice the important part in this equation?

It is IF.

Only if you seek a relationship with Jehovah will He bless you with one.

If you only come to Him with your problems and expect Him to be a magical genie and solve all your problems without you taking the imitative and obeying His guidance you are wasting your time. He will not listen.

 

If you think you can only spend and hour a week with Him in some building and foolishly believe you have a relationship with Him you are grossly mistaken.                           It is only when you spend time every day with Him, reading His word, praising Him, thanking Him and obeying His guidance when He wisely blesses you with it will you be blessed with developing a strong loving relationship with Him. The amazing thing is you will never completely know Him. He will surprise you from time to time with new revelations of Him.

My best time of the day is when I read His word and pray Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my best friend) for the amazing blessing of always enjoying the most amazing relationship there ever could be with You my best friend, with our beloved Father and with our beloved teacher, healer, comforter and strengthener the Holy Spirit. I exalt You in Your loving name. Amen.

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

There Are Only Two.

ARROGANCE

For all that is in the world the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:16 New King James Version

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18New King James Version

 

There are only two sins and we all have them: pride and lust.

Pride is taking credit for the accomplishments Jehovah has blessed us with. That is very arrogant and He will not tolerate it.

Being haughty means to look down on others because you believe you are superior to them.

 

Would you be haughty towards Christ if He were to physically walk into your world today?

 

Many think not but actually would.

Be careful because your wealth, good looks, physical strength can be taken from you in the blink of and eye.

 

We are all one step from the gutter. Anonymous.

With each one we lust for more of our own glory instead of working for the glory of Christ.

 

There is only one cure: It must be crucified.

This does not entail a physical death but rather a spiritual one.   It will be the most painful experience of your life but on the other side of it you will praise Jehovah every day for it. I certainly do.

It is not quick. Mine lasted a year and many I have spoken with it lasted up to four years.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God of love) for blessing me with teaching me and equipping me to live a live dedicated to serving You and expanding our divine loving relationship. I sing songs of glory to You in the name of the king of love Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

In the Day of Adversity.

DIVINE STRENGTH

If you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small. Proverbs 24:10 New King James Version

 

No matter how long we have walked with Christ there always comes a time when we faint in the day of adversity.

 

The difference is that when we first begin our walk we are weak and need lots of Christ’s strength.

 

As we mature he rightly expects us to be stronger and be able to stand more adversity.

Do not be arrogant and foolishly believe that you are incapable of falling because that is when you are your weakest.

 

It is in our adversity that we learn so much. Joseph- Anthony: Green

It is in our adversity were we learn of areas in our life that needs to be worked upon with the Holy Spirit’s guidance and strength.

It is never easy but always worth it as in the process we are able to help those coming up behind us and we grow closer to Christ.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God amongst us ) for blessing me with always being there to guide me, mold me and purify me to be the child You have intended me to be. Thank you for strengthening me in my time of weakness and for picking me up when I fall. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened His disciples after they grew faint and ran away from Him in His time of adversity Jesus Christ. Amen.

Hurry Up and Die.

SINFUL DESIRE

People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control,  brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 2 Timothy 3:2-5 New King James Version

One day in the supermarket line up the headline in a national magazine caught my eyes. It read:” Hurry Up and Die.”

The jist of the article is that many people that went through the great depression of the nineteen thirties scrunched and saved their money.

Their foolish materialistic children have gone in debt way over their heads. The children are not concerned because they believe the money they will get from their parents inheritance will pay their debts.

A consequence of this is many of the elderly are abuse by their children and grand children. They cheat their parents out of money, throw them into a seniors home and only come around when they want money. I have seen and witnessed this pathetic scenario too many times.

As I was reading the article 2 Timothy 3:2-5 flashed into my mind and pretty much every word there describes these low life’s I have met.

Now mind you, there are a lot of abusive parents that are unrepentant towards their now adult children so I believe they are getting their just due (although that does not excuse the children any more than the Pharisees were excused for nailing Christ to the cross).

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) whisper in the ears of the ingrates that the commandment after loving you is loving our parents. Abusing parents is hideous to You. As well my Beloved whisper in the ear of the parents whose children lovingly respectfully care for them to not be so difficult towards them but to be appreciative of them. I humbly ask this in the name of Your most loving and respectful son Jesus Christ. Amen.

Sets Prisoners Free.

flowers caressing blazing red cross

The Lord sets prisoners free. Psalm 146:7 New International Version

One day I took some cigarettes to a stream. I got down on my knees and repeated: “Jesus has set me free, therefore I am free.”

As I did so each cigarette was broken and thrown into the stream.

Whenever the temptation for a smoke came I would close my eyes, repeat that mantra and imagine Jesus smashing a chain of cigarettes that was like handcuffs to me.

I went through dizzy spells, tiredness and shortness of breath when in withdrawal.

 

I have to wonder: What is in those cigarettes anyway? If there are addictive toxins in there and the government knows about it, does that make the government legalized drug dealers?

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12 New King James Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for finally after fifty years, smashing the chains of the destructive poison that had me so tightly in its deadly grip. I praise You in the name of He whose death set so many prisoners free Jesus Christ. Amen.

They Did It to Him To.

PRAISE HIM

So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” Luke 17:17-18 New King James Version

 

Just think of the amazing blessing Jesus preformed in healing the lepers. They were ostracized from society yet with their cure they could go back to their family and friends.

Yet how many showed Him gratitude for His awesome blessings?

Only one.

So when you do something good for someone, do not be surprised if the majority do not thank you, they did it to Jesus as well.

Just be comforted in knowing that Jehovah knows what you did and you will be rewarded in Heaven for your graciousness.  It will be a jewel that is placed in your crown that Jesus will place upon your head in Heaven.

 

As well, give thanks for the opportunity to show kindness to others as Christ did for you with His sacrifice.

 

I personally just quietly praise the Lord for an opportunity to show His divine love through me, His humble servant. Then, there is no room for anger if I am slighted for the act of kindness I show others.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) remind me to thank you every day for the abundant blessings You graciously shower upon me. Please remind me my love that the ultimate purpose for sharing with others as You have shared with me is to bring You glory and heal the injury inflicted by the calloused ones that take the gifts for granted. I humbly beseech You in the name of He whose innumerous gifts were taken for granted when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

How Can You Fill a Full Bucket?

IT MUST BE SCRUBBED CLEAN

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever  the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17 New King James Version   

                                                                                

If you want Gods blessings upon your life how can He if your life is full of pride? Isn’t that trying to fill a bucket with water when it is already full?                                  

And what is in that bucket?                                                                                                       

Is not pride, arrogance and self centeredness filthy in Jehovah’s eyes?                                                                                                                  

So would you drink form a bucket of water that was dunked into a pool of raw sewage?   

                                                                                                                              

Of course the only way to clean that bucket and receive the clean pure spiritual life giving waters of the Holy Spirit is to humbly ask Jehovah to clean that bucket and allow Him to do so.    

                                                                                                          

It is neither easy nor pleasant, but the end result is well worth it.                                    

The end result of course is being full of the Holy Spirits pure life giving waters.

THEN, you will begin to receive Gods blessings.                                                               

Now of course to continue to receive that spiritual life giving water you must empty your bucket.                                                                                                                      

The way to do that is to be using that spiritual life giving water to share with others. 

                                                                                                                                     

That means as Jehovah has freely given to you, you are to freely share with others.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God the eternal creator) purge my heart of all the filth of self so that I may be honoured to receive Your beautiful grace in my heart to create a heart of love for You and love for others. In doing this please bless me with the opportunities to share this spiritual spring of life giving waters with others as abundantly as You have given them to me.I humbly ask this in the revered name of he who was a constant spring of spiritual waters during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                   

 

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

Proof That Animals Will be in Heaven.

CARE FOR ANIMALS

“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them Isaiah 11:6 New King James Version

This is proof that we will be in physical bodies when in Heaven and that animals will be there with us.

 

I do not know if our beloved pets will be there but sure hope so.

Being an animal lover I look forward to the day when I can walk amongst all animals with no fear and  look forward to the day I can play with a tiger or lion.

Which animal do you look forward to playing with?

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) how I long to be in the perfect creation that awaits me in the Heavenly home You have so graciously prepared for me and to enjoy the creatures there in perfect peace, love and joy. I eagerly anticipate thanking You in the name of the King of this amazing place Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Returns to His Own Vomit.

THE WICKEDS REWARD

As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly. Proverbs 26:11 New King James Version

 

Folly: a foolish act, practice or idea, a costly and foolish undertaking  www.dictionary.com

Just as Christ does not force anyone to live righteously neither are we to attempt to force others to do what is right and to not do what is wrong. If they insist upon living a fools folly, they will pay the price not you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Growing up on a farm we had the occasion to see dogs vomiting and then eating their vomit and then vomiting again. It always baffled me.

So too it is with stupid, stubborn people.  I have met people who insist upon repeating the same foolish behavior time and time again. No it is not mistakes. Mistakes is when you do something you do not know what you are doing.

The wise man learns, the fool goes back and repeats the same stupid acts.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

You try to talk with them and explain it but they arrogantly refuse to listen. Their motto is: I know, I know.” When in fact they know nothing of what they are doing.

The only thing you can do is step back and let them suffer for their arrogance and stupidity. This is very hard when it is someone you love like someone in your family.

Most time from my experience when they pay the price for their stupidity they try to blame someone else instead of admitting it was their own fault.

Stupid and stubborn go together like peanut butter and jam. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the ability to break through to the stiff necked people and help them see the error of their ways to help them improve their lives. I meekly request this in the name of He who broke through His stiff necked disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                           

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

Sing Praises to Your Name.

LET US ALL REJOICE

Therefore I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name. Psalms 18:49

When have you done it?

Love is an action, not an emotion. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Do you love your spouse? If you do you talk about them a lot don’t you?

How about your children? Don’t you like to brag about them?

How about your favourite sports team or singer or pets?

Now, how about Jesus?

When was the past time you sang praises about His gift of salvation He has blessed you with at church?

When was the last time you shared with your neighbour about the marvelous things Christ has done in your life?

When was the last time you shared about His glory He has revealed to you at work or school?  What is that, the politically correct detest even hearing the name of Jesus.

What about that one in the crowd who is receptive to hearing?

Are you going to deny them the chance to be blessed like you have because you are a coward and fear the politically correct?

Do you have little faith or no faith in the power of Christ to protect you from the wicked ones darts of vile contempt they will fire at you?

From my experience I trust in the Lord to open my mouth at the right time to say the right words. I do not fear the politically correct because I know the Holy Spirit will defeat them.

Do not expect a roaring joyous acclamation from society?

From my experience it will only be one or two that will come to talk with you and be interested in learning about Christ. That is okay because even one is important to Jesus.

Christians are called to action, not be spectators. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Jehovah my beloved, I know sometimes I am annoying to the ingrates in this world when I cannot but help singing praise to You for all the amazing blessing You have so graciously and abundantly showered upon me in my walk with You to our Heavenly home. I ask oh Gracious one that when I sing praise to you that there are some whose hearts are open to the awesome relationship You long to bless them with when they submit their hearts, minds and lives to You. I ask this in the name of the one who shares incredible revelations of You when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                          

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