We Will Never Understand It.

God loves each of

 For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. Ephesians 2:8-9 Holy Bible , Amplified Version.

We will never understand it. How Jehovah in His amazing love allowed His most cherished Son to be humiliated, beaten, tortured, mocked and allowed to die an agonizing death and be cast into hell for three days because of His awesome love for us.

Most of us were less than holy when He graciously came to us, indeed many of us were downright scoundrels.

Scoundrels make the best saints because they realize the magnificence of Jehovahs love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

In the world you have to earn it if you want it (except of course in “liberal” societies were the bums expect the government to do everything for them because of the “you owe me” attitude which is destroying some many societies in the world today). Yet Jehovah, in His miraculous love, came unto us with such an fabulous offer that we would be insane to refuse.

This, of course, is not just salvation but also an astounding love affair of which is impossible to match anywhere else. As we progress in this relationship he slowly burns off the dross (sometimes he expels destructive addictions and behaviour on His own and some times He walks through it with it with us) to mold us into a truly new creation. Those that formerly new us are stunned and confused about the change. Of course this process will continue until we reach our heavenly home. As a result our love, respect and admiration for Him is constantly expanding.

“I do not understand the mystery of grace; only that it meets us where we are and doesn’t leave us where it found us.” Anne Lamott

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the most wonderful blessing of Your magnificent gift of grace unto a undeserving child such as I. Oh a great big thank you for your incredible transformation of a filthy little rag a bound into a beautiful child of Yours through a slow but steady hand of the Heavenly Molder. I exalt You in the name of he whose stunning gift of His cherished blood made all this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He has Done the Impossible.

wild-tulips-growing-in-the-shade-alond-a-gentle-stream

 “For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I am constantly amazed with my Beloved at what He has done and is doing in my life. So many times He has done the impossible.

When I was an alcoholic and cried out unto Him in anguish to smash the chains of this horrible addiction He instantly smashed them ( that has been eight years without a drink).

When I prayed that my relatives would come unto Him, one has now returned to church for the first time in fifty years and she is bringing her friends to church who have gone just as long (that one took about thirty years of praying before He succeeded ).

When I prayed for bad dispositions to be exiled from me ( I was vindictive and spiteful) He guided me to good Christian councilors and between Him and them they were cast out from me with the help of the Holy Spirit. Now when they come a knocking I go to Jehovah in prayer and He releases me from the urge. 

There has been so many times he has accomplished amazing things in my life that I believed were impossible.

Is there anything in your life you need help with but believe all is lost?

Completely surrender it unto Jehovah and watch Him accomplish the impossible in your life. “We have a God who delights in impossibilities.” — Andrew Murray

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with always graciously abundantly providing for me is so many amazing ways. I glorify You in the name of Your best provision, my Beloved savior Christ Jesus. Amen

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

He Washes Them Away.

waterfalls tumbling into chartreuse lake between exotic trees

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]. John 14:27 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever sat by the shore of a lake or ocean?

I like to sit there and relax. As the waves go out they grab my anger, fear, frustration, worry and sorrow and carry them away. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He washes them away. As the waves come in they fill me with peace. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He fills me with His divine peace love and joy.

Now, we do not need an ocean or lake to experience this blessing but it is experienced its most effective in nature. Try sitting by a small creek with little rapids or a quite forest or a quiet meadow.

Here is the formula I use: first I close my eyes and bawl my eyes out unto my Heavenly Father what ever the problem is. Then I sit there quietly while He blesses me with enveloping me in His loving, comforting arms. Once He has filled me with His Divine peace I slowly open my eyes and He reveals all the beauty around me He has created. Every time there is an over whelming feeling of love, joy, peace and awe. I fill at one with my Beloved and cannot but help shout out “ I love You oh Holy Father, I love You.” It is truly the most amazing experience I have ever been blessed with.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for Your blessings of bountiful peace during the storms that crash around me and the fires that surround me through out my walk with You. I magnify You in the name of the Price of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Better Rice and Beans than Steak.

true-friendship

 Better is a dinner of vegetables and herbs where love is present Than a fattened ox served with hatred. Proverbs 15:17 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

I believe a modern way of saying this is better a poor mans meal of rice and beans where there is love thank steak where there is a lot of hate, jealousy and phony friends.

I know it to be true.

I have had fancy meals where the folks sitting at the meal could not even look each other in the face they hated each other so much ( and that was with family ) . Believe me , it was no an enjoyable meal. It was surprising they could even digest their meal . I wanted to bolt for the door.

A meal shared with hate is the worse meal to ever been eaten. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have shared a meal with extremely poor souls that were giving me a portion of their food and it was just rice and beans. I felt like royalty. The love just permeated the atmosphere and I did not want the meal to end.

A meal shared with love is the best meal ever. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the numerous times You have blessed me with communion with You and with those whose hearts overflow with love. I appreciate this in the name of my most cherished Beloved Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Set Aside Self-Righteous Pride.

fruit-of-the-spirit

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever been in the company of the : I did” s You know the type, they cannot say a complete sentence without saying: “ I did this.” or : : I did that. “. To me I find it an extremely annoying experience and want to tell them : “ You are not the only person in the world you know.” Some times I do. You should see the look of indignation on their faces.

On the other hand I just go about serving the Lord quietly. Yes, He has taken me many incredible places and accomplished amazing things through me. Some times during a conversation these experiences will be shared with others. They look at me in amazement and comment that I have lived an incredible life. To me there is nothing incredible about it but I give Jehovah the glory because with out Him nothing would have been accomplished. Folks are always asking me to share these experiences with them because they find them so fascinating and interesting.

The good part though is that through sharing these experiences with them it encourages them and strengthens them through their hard times to go to Jehovah.

As well, it helps some of them to see just what Jehovah can do in their lives when they surrender to Him and place their faith in Him.

Give credit for your accomplishments where it belongs, to Jehovah, not you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your overflowing  benevolence of opportunities to exhibit the awesome possibilities Your provide to those with an obedient heart unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who accomplished amazing feats because He walked in honour and obedience unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Real Holy War

CANNOT OUTRUN

But they rebelled And grieved His Holy Spirit; Therefore He changed into their enemy, And He fought against them. Isaiah 63:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice this verse is directed towards Gods people?

When you rebel against the Holy Spirit you set yourself up for a real holy war.

He knows you better than you know yourself so He knows your weak spots. You can bet that is where he will attack. He will show no mercy. He wants complete and total surrender.

It is not to subjugate you and enslave you but to set you free.

When you rebel against the Holy Spirit you are telling Him to shove off, you will live your life as you see fit and not as he is trying to direct you to. This is a road to disaster for you and those around you.

So, He wages war against you to show you the folly of your ways.

Be careful though. You can exhaust His patience and he will walk away from you. Then look out. He will not be there to protect you from the wicked ones or guide you away from disastrous decisions. As a consequence your life will slowly ebb deeper and deeper into a living hell.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) grace me with stern warning, when necessary, to walk in harmony with You so as to not be foolish enough to suffer the fate of the unwise that wage war against You. I humbly request this in the name of the King of the Heavenly armies Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Gather Them in My Arms

 

I am witnessing the suffering of certain family members. For years I have tried to share with them that their selfish, greedy, lying cheating lifestyle is going to come back to bite them. Over the past few years I have witnessed them slowly descending into a living Hell of their own making. Their financial situation is worsening by the day. Their health is slowly ebbing away (once they were very active but now because of health problems they can go out less and less). They are suffering intensely. There is constant fighting in the home.

Even though they have abused me when I witness this catastrophe it is agonizing (agony is mush more intense than pain).

I want to gather them in my arms and explain to them that this is their own undoing and if they do not repent their future will only get worse. Alas, it will be to no avail. I know in my heart they will not listen. I know exactly how Jesus felt when he said: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who murders the prophets and stones [to death] those [messengers]who are sent to her [by God]! How often I wanted to gather your children together [around Me], as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling.” Matthew 23:37 Holy Bible, Amplified Version Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I am sure the Holy Spirit has spoken to their hearts but they laughed and said there is no God. Even now I am sure the Holy Spirit is convicting them but in their stubbornness and pride they refuse to repent of their wicked ways.

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 1:18

I recently read an article about a man who traveled across either Canada or the U.S and spoke with folks from all ages, finical groups and ethnic groups. His findings confirmed what they Bible says when it says that as you do unto others, so too will it be done unto you. It also says that when you obey Jehovah He will bless you seven times. When you disobey Jehovah, He will curse you seven times.

And if by these things you are not turned to Me, but act with hostility against Me, then I also will act with hostility against you, and I will strike you seven times for your sins. Leviticus 26:23-25 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I am seeing it in my family and it is like a knife piercing my heart.

Are you living a lying, cheating,conniving, back biting, self centered life right now?

Beware, Jehovah is a God of justice and you will suffer much more than you gain in the long run. It may take years or it may take decades but Jehovahs justice will prevail. And when that justice happens, there is no conning Him, no plea bargaining or parole. Justice will be served to its fullest extent. I have seen it happen repeatedly through the last decade with numerous others so do not laugh and say it will not happen to you.

Gods justice will be done in Gods time, in Gods way. You will not escape it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) send the Holy Spirit to convict the wicked ones of their evil ways unto repentance so they do not continue to suffer in their lives for their obstinance and cheating of others. May this be done so they do not suffer the supreme price for their evil in the damnation of eternal torment in Hell. I humbly request this in the name of the supreme judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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