Bring Me There

FULLFILLED DESIRES

 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favour and honour; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Grace is defined as unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification and a virtue coming from God. Virtue is defined as conformity to a standard of right.

Therefore we need the Holy Spirits guidance and power to conform to Jehovahs Divine standard of morals in our lives. This is not a one off experience but rather a moment by moment, day by day experience. It is not anything we can accomplish by ourselves. Our intelligence is very limited compared to Jehovahs infinite wisdom. So we need to constantly depend upon His unlimited wisdom is every aspect of our lives.

To stumble on the little things will cause the big stumble to occur. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Our strength to live such lives is weak compared to the strength the Holy Spirit will instill in us to accomplish this feat. Once we begin to have integrity instilled in us we are not to become complacent and believe we will always have it. Satan is far smarter than us and can quickly strip it away from us. We are not to become arrogant towards others lest it be stripped from us to humble us.

“If I am not [in a state of grace], God bring me there; if I am, God keep me there!” — Joan of Arc

Prayer: Jehovah- Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for Your awesome gift of graceful guidance in every aspect of my life. Thank you for not only forgiving me when I stumble and fall but with Your strong gentle hands lift me up to continue my walk towards the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I laud You in the name whose graceful sacrifice on the cross made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Man Forgets His Purpose

with-all-your-heart

 He made Christ who knew no sin to [ judicially ] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [ that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious loving kindness]. 2 Corinthians 5:21 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There is only one supreme relationship we need to be fully concerned with.

It is not your family, your wife, your friends or your associates.

It is the relationship you have with Jehovah. When we are blessed with Holy Communion with him we need never ask why we are here. We know we are here to be blessed with the supreme love affair and that is with Jehovah. We need never ask what is the meaning of life because we know it is to be in an obedient, loving relationship with our Heavenly Father.

“Man, made in the image of God, has a purpose – to be in relationship to God, who is there. Man forgets his purpose and thus he forgets who he is and what life means.” — Francis Schaeffer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah- M’Kaddesh ( The Lord is my Sanctifier ) for setting me apart from the world to be blessed with an awesome love affair with You. Thank you that because of this cherished gift I know the meaning of life and my purpose in it. I exalt You in the name of my precious King Jesus Christ who has given my life meaning and purpose. Amen

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

State of Well-Being and Contentment.

HOPE IN THE LORD

 But let all who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice, Let them ever sing for joy; Because You cover and shelter them, Let those who love Your name be joyful and exult in You. Psalms 5: 11 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

In this context I believe joy can be expressed as a feeling or state of well-being and contentment.

Because we take refuge in Jehovahs strong yet gentle loving arms when trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares occur our mental and spiritual being experience a overwhelming sensation of well being and contentment which is permeated by the Holy Spirit.

When we place our total trust in Jehovah He blesses us with inner peace and contentment. We cannot but shout and sing in joyous exaltation for such an amazing blessing.

Prayer: I praise you Jehovah- Machsi – Lord my Refuge for blessing me with Your favour to take refuge in Your strong, loving gentle arms during our trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I delight in singing songs of praise, love and adoration towards You. I thank you for the times when the Heavenly chorus of angels join in. I exalt You in the name of He whose nail scarred hands made this benediction possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

One Who is in Right Standing

KEEP YOUR HEART

 

For You, O Lord, bless the righteous man [the one who is in right standing with You]; You surround him with favor as with a shield. Psalms 5: 12 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

Right standing and righteousness is defined as conforming to a high standard of morality or virtue. This means doing what is right in Jehovahs eyes.

The favor Jehovah abundantly blesses the righteous man and woman with is to furnish us abundantly with power, quality and attributes. These will assist us with the skills and opportunities to shine Christs light into a dark world. This light will guide some of the lost ones into the Sheppards fold. This will shield us from the wicked ones schemes and scams.

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah- Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with Your Divine righteousness in every aspect in my life and the power to live through it in a life of integrity. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly King who has the most supreme integrity Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Corrupts Good Morals.

WRONG WALK

 Do not be unequally bound together with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness ? 2 Corinthians 6:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Can a wolf live together with a deer ?

Of course not.

Why not ?

Because the first chance given the wolf will attack and devour the deer.

Can the antelope live together with the lion ? Of course not.

Why not ?

Because the first chance given the lion will attack and devour the antelope.

Can those who walk in the light of Christ be friends of those who walk in the darkness of Satan ?

Of course not.

Why not ?

Because everything they love we Christians hate and everything we Christians hate everything they love. It is even more important not to be unevenly yoked with unbelievers in marriage. That is a recipe for certain disaster and heart ache.

That does not mean we cannot work with them and be respectful towards them but we are to avoid friendships with them as their destructive manner and disposition will slowly destroy our divine manner and disposition. It will start out slowly without you even noticing it like a small patch of rust on a vehicle. But, just as the rust will slowly destroy the vehicle if not eradicated immediately so too will the uncircumcised of heart destroy our heart towards Christ slowly but surely un-noticed until it is too late for the foolish ones that play with the devils fire.

Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with Your Divine Heavenly and Your guidance towards those who are walking in the light. Thank you for Your Divine providence in warning me of the destructive wolfs out there that only seek to use and abuse others for their own wicked ends and to drive us away from You. I exalt You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Wisdom is Having.

listen-to-our-wise-elders

Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I love to learn and am always willing to watch, listen, learn and be thankful towards my mentors. As a result there have been many disasters averted in my life.

A wise man listens, learns and obeys . Joseph- Anthony: Green

As for being self disciplined that requires the blessing of the Holy Spirit. We are all weak from time to time and need His infinite strength to get us through some trial and temptations. This as well has helped me avert many disasters in my life.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Knowledge comes from experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have seen far too many idiots continue upon the same road to disaster. No it is not repeating the same mistake.

The first time it is a mistake, after that it is just pain stupid and stubborn. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have seen way too many needlessly suffer because of this.

When I was treeplanting I would take the rookies and teach them the proper way to plant ( there was a lot more to it than just slamming a tree into the ground ) at the geginnig of the season.. I was not paid to do this but did it because of the graciousness in my heart. As they honed their skills they began to plant more trees. We were paid by how many trees we planted so they began to make a lot more money. Then there were always the: “ I know, I knows.’ ). These are the ones that when I offered to teach them to plant they would always say I know what I am doing, I know. As a result they would work twice as hard as the ones that listened to me and make one third the amount of money.

Stupidness and stubbornness go hand in hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

There is a price to pay for stupidity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for all of Your patience and wisdom you have blessed me with through my walk with You. It has been a true God send in my life. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Require Suffering

ships-in-harbour

 “Behold, I will refine them [through suffering] and test them Jeremiah 9:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovahs plan for refining us means buring off of the dross.

In smelting steel it is put through a furnace and all the impurities is burned off of the iron to make steel.

In Jehovahs smelting furnace it is putting us through the furnace to burn off our bad dispositions.

For me it was being independent instead of being dependant upon Jehovah. He put me through some extremely hard times where I could not depend upon myself but was left with no option but to depend upon Him. The process lasted for about a year. Even after that the process had to be repeated again and again until the lesson was finally learned. He would test me and at first it was hard to be dependent upon Him but in time it became easier and easier.

Believe me, it was not an enjoyable experience suffering through it but I thank Jehovah every day for that blessing.

Now, I do not make a move without inquiring of Him. It leads to a lot less train wrecks financially and in relationships.

We require suffering for spiritual growth Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah The Lord is Present) for always being present through all the numerous times I was put through the furnace to burn off the wicked dross so that Your skilled hands could mold me into the child You desire. I exalt You in the name of he who is the Supreme Molder Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not be a Windbag.

no-sword-words

 Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2 New King James Version Holy Bible

Have you ever met a wind bag?

They are the type of folks that just never shut up. They are usually arrogant and very opinionated as well. They are also the type to offer an opinion on a matter with very little knowledge of the topic. As a consequence they suffer a lot of foot in mouth disease. They are always putting their foot in their big mouth. Then when they look like fools and they become indignant when proven wrong.

Do not be a wind bag.

Those who talk much say little, those who talk little say much. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Have you ever met the quiet type? They hardly ever speak but when they do they are very wise in their opinion.

You enjoy listening to them and learn a lot from them. They are the type to listen and ask questions before offering their wise opinion.

Have big ears and a little mouth. It will keep you out of a lot of trouble. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Have you ever met the type who nonchalantly say:”So help me God.” They foolishly fail to realize they are taking an oath before Jehovah and He will hold them to account.

 I just inform those in the conversation that what I am saying is true to the best of my knowledge and am will to listen to opposing point of view based upon facts not feelings.

Prayer: Please bless me Jehovah KalEl ( voice of God ) to constantly guide me thought, words and actions to reflect Your Holy manner of conversation and to take seriously my oaths. I humbly ask this in the name of he whose speech was always true and respectful Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Come close to God.

PREDESTINATION

 Come close to God [with a contrite heart] and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; and purify your [unfaithful] hearts, you double-minded [people]. James 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Contrite means you feel bad about your sins and desire to repent of them and double minded means you think this way but behave in the exact opposite way.

Have you ever met someone who says they will do this and then they do that. It is not a one off experience but a habitual one.

For example you make an appointment with them for nine o clock in the morning and they do not show up until eleven or one in the afternoon. They do not call to say they will be late and when they arrive they do not apologize but make some stupid excuse. It infuriated me. Now I just tell folks to be there on time because I am not waiting. If it is important enough for them then they will be there on time.

Mutual respect is an intricate part of a loving relationship. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same thing is true with Jehovah.

We must be respectful towards Him if we desire a loving relationship with Him.

If He convicts you of a sin in your life and you admit it but intentionally continue in your sin that will make Him angry and yes He will walk away from you. He will not accept lame excuses nor tolerate insolence.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with a Heavenly friendship with You. Please bless me with always being respectful towards You in all I say and do. I humbly give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cast All Your Anxiety on Him.

calms-the-storms

 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 Holy Bible, New International Version

When ever a crisis occurs or a stressful moment occurs I pray for Jehovah to bless me with peace, patience and faith. Every morning during prayers I always ask for wisdom in how to properly handle any and all stressful situations.

Usually He answers me without my knowing during the situation but upon reflection I always thank Him for the blessing.

Sometimes I can be short tempered (yes it happens to us all) and apologize for it to those offended and to Jehovah with deep regret and ask Him to help me the next time (which He has in how to remove myself from stressful situations and people- yes there are toxic people that love to push our buttons and we are to avoid them whenever possible).

Many times I go to a quiet place in nature with my Bible. Nature calms me down and after pouring my heart out to Him a feeling of peace envelopes me and He guides me to verses in the Bible and with wisdom in what He is saying on the proper course to take to handle the situation in a Christ like manner.

I do them same thing for every problem and worry.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength. Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Your Divine deliverance from all worry, stress and short temperance with Your Holy peace, wisdom and strength. I exalt you in the name of He who is the greatest Deliverer of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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