Will Not be Blessed

An inheritance claimed too soon will not be blessed at the end. Proverbs 20:21 New International Version

It is very common today for children to want their inheritance be given to them even though their parents are still alive. It is because they have foolishly gone in debt over their heads and expect their parents to pay for their extravagant lifestyle and bail them out.

POVERTY

That is like saying you wish your parents were dead.

That is a cursed thing in the eyes of Jehovah.

The children who do attain their inheritance do not curtail their unwise lifestyle but continue on falsely believing mommy and daddy will be there to bail them out again.

When mommy and daddy die and there is no money left in their inheritance to support their luxurious lifestyle and they lose everything. I can see great suffering coming soon to todays youth.

When the well runs dry oh how terrible the consequences will be for those living off of others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Naheh (the Lord who Smites) convict the wicked, selfish, self centered ones and move them to repent. Teach them to show proper respect and give loving care to their aged parents. Speak into the hearts of the parents to appreciate the loving care and sacrifice their children are giving towards them. I humbly ask this in the name of the son who cared for His mother while suffering an agonizing death Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do You Allow the Investigation?

He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But whoever walks wisely will be delivered. Proverbs 28:26  New King James Version 

How many times have we considered ourselves to know everything about a situation and then fall hard and in disgrace on our faces? I have done it many times.                                                                                     

Is it not better to trust in the wisest guidance councilor, the Holy Spirit for guidance? When we trust in God with our lives He will send a helper. His name is The Holy Spirit. He will always guide us to the right choices in life, even if they seem strange at the time.

GODS WORD

“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”Act 2 38-39 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) that when we place our complete trust in You. By Your unfathomable grace You abundantly send the greatest mentor, The Holy Spirit to guide us in the right choices in life. In the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ we pray. Amen

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

The Attacks Will be on You

“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 ) King James Version
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). King James Version
I don’t know about you, but my worst tribulations came from those who were close to me before coming to Christ. They were the ones that constantly inflicted the most anguish and pain on me. So much so I had to move thousands of miles away from them. The pain I bore was almost unbearable and intense.
About a year later again someone close to me that was an unbeliever caused a lot of grief and tribulation in my life. That time it was not as severe though as I had the knowledge from the previous one and knew Jesus was with me every step of the way.
The closer you get to God, the more the attacks are going to be on you and the more severe they will be. Satan knows your weak points and that is where he will unmercifully attack you to destroy you.
Do not be afraid though. For we have the greatest champion in our corner who makes the devil scurry away like a freighted rat when a light is shone on them. His mighty name is JESUS CHRIST. He defeated satan on the cross and will defeat Him every time he attempts to destroy you.

CHRIST DEFEATS DEMONS

Oh for sure you will suffer. But, in the end that will make you stronger so you can withstand the vile wicked one when the next attack comes.

Do not get cocky though and believe you can take the devil on yourself. That is the sure fire way to humiliating defeat.

Instead know that when you are tortured or tempted to the breaking point that is when Jesus comes charging in like a raging fierce warrior to your rescue.

These attacks will occur throughout your entire life until you are called to your magnificent home in Heaven. Then you will realize all those battles were worth it.

Prayer: Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) thank you for coming to my rescue during the intense battles between satan and me. I know he is smarter than me and stronger. But, you are the smartest and strongest. You have promised to save me in my hour of need and I believe you always keep your word. In the name of our
great protector Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Who you going to trust?

First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:24  New King James Version

A stiff apology is a second insult.   G. K. Chesterton

DARKNESS

Have you ever had someone sarcastically apologize to you? You know they are not remorseful; they are doing it because they have to. If you grew up with brothers and or sisters I am sure that has happened to you.

Isn’t it better to not apologize at all?

When this happens to me I just look them in the eye and ask one simple question that drives them nuts: “Are you?”  It drives them nuts because their hypocrisy is exposed.

Then just talk with them, explain why what they did was wrong and why a sincere apology is in order. Tell them you refuse to talk with them until they are truly sorry. Then take it to the Lord in prayer that the Holy Spirit convicts them of their wrong attitude. In my experience it takes no more than a day or two before they come round.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; Remember, things could be worse. You could be them! Joseph- Anthony- Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God our peace) please fill me with wisdom and peace when encountering phony people who mock me with their sarcastic pretentious attitudes and apologies. In the name of the one who received many such insults Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

My Greatest Education.

” But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”James 3:17  New International Version

The greatest education is not to be found in some Ivy League school not a famous technical school. It is to be found at one single source, The Holy Bible. Oh you can become an egg head, but still be a loser in life. What we sorely need to be taught in all our schools throughout the world is good morals. The only place to find that is in the Bible. You may go to school to learn economics but do you have the knowledge between what is right and what is greed. Do you have the scruples not to make bad deals which may cheat seniors out of their retirement funds? You need the knowledge of the Bible in every aspect of your life, from choosing a friend, to choosing a mate to choosing the right choices in your business dealings.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

      
If I could choose between a knowledge of the Bible and a college education, I would readily choose the knowledge of the Bible.William Lyon Phelps   

I have been to many schools where a useful education was gained that is carried with me to this day. But, the greatest education I ever received was in studying the Bible. You know something great about the Bible? You can read and hear a Bible verse many times and it means nothing to you. Then, when it is needed in your life the verse will jump out at you and its secret revealed to you to help you deal with a situation I your life where you need its wisdom.      

If we lack wisdom, God’s wisdom, we need only ask of Him and He will grant it when we ask in faith, according to His promise in James 1:5.

It is the greatest teaching tool in life. Use it generously. It is Gods gift to you. It is free and is useful in every aspect of your life. It will prevent a lot of troubles, heal you and bless you with peace during the troubling storms.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing us with the best guidance book that is chock full of the best life advice there ever was. In the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It’s How Much You Give

As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury.  He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins.  “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. Luke 21:1-3 New International Version

It is not how much of our time or money that we give to the Lord that is important. It is how much we give from our heart that counts. When it is someones birthday or Christmas, do you grudgingly give niggardly (grudgingly giving sparingly, greedy Webster’s Dictionary) or do you give with great joy?

Should the same mentality not be taken when giving to God?

After all, aren’t we just giving back to Him what He has given us in the first place?

SHARING

As well, when you give should it not be in haughtiness (not proud : not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary).
I personally do not like churches that send newsletters to members that state how much each person gave. That should be between them and God, not other church members. Doesn’t that embarrass those that have limited resources while puffing up (making proud) those that have excess to give.

Prayer: Please El Shaddai (God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) protect me from having a haughty heart about my giving. Let my giving be as a offering of thanks for all the wonderful blessing You have so graciously given me. In the name of Your greatest gift to us Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

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

Do you keep it with you at all times?

And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes Deuteronomy 17:19 New King James Version “

Do you keep it with you at all times?

Do you keep a Bible with you everywhere you go?

After reading a article I have decided to keep a little Bible in my knapsack with me all the time.

NO DOMINION

Think about it.

When something bad happens to you in the course of your day, why not just stop and open your Bible. Isn’t that the best places to find reassurance? When something happens you do not understand, why not just open your Bible and see if there are verses there that will explain to you Gods divine order in the world. When something bad happens to you where better to find comfort than in Gods soothing Word?

And of course, when something good happens to you where better to find verses to read of others joy when our wonderful God blessed them centuries ago and see how they too praised God.

So, I don’t know about you, but as for me I intend on ALWAYS carrying a Bible with me. It is truly a multi-tasker that can guide us, comfort us, encourage us and share our joy. Why don’t you decide to give it a try as well?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for Your gracious gift of Your divine word that we can always carry with us. In the name of the greatest gift You have given us Jesus Christ we pray. Amen

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

The Wicked is Worth Little.

The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little. Proverbs 10:20 New King James Version

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting your knowledge into practice. Knowledge comes from learning from your experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The wise give instruction that is valuable for your life. They have been blessed with this by living Godly lives. Yes they make mistakes but they learn from them and are humble enough to admit it and repent. Repent means not only sorrow for what you have done or said but to stop doing it. This only is achieved with meditation with Jehovah and the power of the Holy Spirit within them to correct the wrong. You need not be old (although it helps) because I have met many old fools. If you desire to avoid many hardships in life it is prudent to be respectful towards the wise and listen and obey their insightful advice. Yes be respectful with them less they walk away from you. When you do get into a bind it is astute to go to them for advice on that matter as well. Do not forget that they have made mistakes as well and learned from them. When you have become wise do not lord it over others but be quick to help them as you have been helped.

WISDOM LASTS AND ETERNITY

Pride and foolishness go hand in hand just as pride and arrogance does. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The fools are the ones that keep on repeating the same folly over and over again and never learning their lesson from the experience. Fools are also proud and arrogant. They believe they are Mr. or Mrs. Know It Alls. I have met many that keep on repeating the same folly for years and know it but are too proud to change or admit they are wrong.

They are also schemers and scammers. When they speak look out because they are out to con, deceive and manipulate you to get something from you for nothing. You follow the advice of the wicked at your own peril, it will always led to ruin.

Speaking from personal experience every time I listened to and obeyed the voice of the wicked it has had disastrous consequences and they stood there and laughed at me. It stung bad because I thought they were my friends.

Can you remember when you followed Godly advice and it helped you? Can you remember being stung by following the advice of the wicked?

Prayer: Please KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the help of the Holy Spirit to always be a wise voice in the midst of so many loud hollow sounding gongs so as to best be able to provide wise advice in such a place so desolate of Godly wisdom. I humbly request this in the name of the one voice of truth and wisdom Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Need This so Badly.

Every morning is spent following a cherished ritual that prepares me for the adventures headed our way throughout the day.

It begins in quiet time reading. the Bible (where God talks to me).

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY
For gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight;  for receiving instruction in prudent behavior doing what is right and just and fair Proverbs 1:2-3

Praying (where I talk with God) with my most beloved friend.

The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous.   Proverbs 15:29

And, when the Spirit inspires me, writing (where God uses me to talk to others).
The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent and their lips promote instruction.   Proverbs 16:23

It helps me stay positive and happy all day.

To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness    Ecclesiastes 2:26
It also heightens my sensitivity to caring for and about others, which builds up my account in Heaven.

But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:20

The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help. Acts 11:29

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabboni (God our Teacher) for the most cherished time of day. The time of day when I can sit at the feet of the wisest teacher and devour Your magnificent word. In the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ we pray. Amen
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day.

You are a Masterpiece.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 New King James Version

When we accept Christ as our King He begins a process of burning off the dross in our lives that lasts until we reach our Heavenly home. Burning off the dross it the process where the Holy Spirit through life’s circumstances of trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares burns off the undesirable traits in your life to make you acceptable unto Jehovah. We all have numerous undesirable traits which we inherited from our fleshy parents. They must be burned off to make us acceptable to our Heavenly Father. To be sure they are neither fun nor enjoyable. So those who in this world are only interested in having fun and not interested in suffering need not apply. You will not last.  Most times you are not even aware of the changes the Holy Spirit is weaving into the very core of your life but those around you will for sure see it. You are slowly becoming a new beautiful creation in Christ. You are a masterpiece in the making that is unique.

BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS TO CHRIST

Jehovah does not make junk. Joseph- Anthony: Green

During this process your Devine purpose will be revealed to you. It need not be something big and important like going overseas to be a missionary in the jungle. It may be doing volunteer work in a hospital, visiting seniors in seniors homes, helping in the soup kitchen or food bank or any other numerous Devine assignment. Do not believe yours is less important in Jehovahs eyes or that you are too young or old.

There is no small act of love that is not great in Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green

You may have one calling or you may have many. Your calling can change over time. I have had four callings so far in my walk with Christ. The first one was preparing me for the second one. The second one was preparing me for the third and fourth one.

We all have a job to do in Jehovahs kingdom, there is no retirement nor unemployment. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh  (God is our Provider) for blessing me with oh so many awesome opportunities to serve You in my walk with You and the amazing way in which You have molded this hard lumpy clay into a beautiful vessel of Yours. I exalt You in the name of the Master Potter Jesus Christ. Amen.

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