Is Worse Than No.

So if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and while there you remember that your brother has something [such as a grievance or legitimate complaint] against you, leave your offering there at the altar and go. First make peace with your brother, and then come and present your offering. Matthew 5:23-24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Never ruin an apology with an excuse.”Benjamin Franklin

I have encountered too many that are too immature to apologize for their wrong and or are doing so to save face. They always make up excuses to deflect responsibility for their wrong doing. Most times during their wicked schemes they use the excuse to deflect the blame from themselves and try to make you feel as if you are the guilty party.

An excuse is a skin of a reason wrapped up in a lie. A. W. Tozer

They are not remorseful and will commit the same offense the very first opportunity they get.

A false apology is worse than no apology at all. Joseph- Anthony: Green

They arrogantly lamebrainly laugh believing they have gotten away with their dippy apology. It always comes back to haunt them though.

I can think of one knucklehead that tried this with me. The thing is though is that it repeatedly comes back to bite him and each time the bite digs deeper into his wicked heart. It drives him insane. I asked him to help me once and he gave an excuse with his apology for not helping me. Now, whenever he needs my help, I remind him of his excuse and use it as a reason for not helping him. Whereas he laughed and bragged to others that he made a fool out of me now it is he that is made to look the fool and everybody laughs at him. I do not do this for revenge but as a defense against his wicked schemes. He is the type that always wants something from you but is never willing to help when you need it.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Magen ( The Lord my Shield ) bless me with being a shield against the wicked perverted ones that foolishly attempt to con and manipulate with their disgusting lies. Guide me to use Your words to mortally wound them in defense so that they will howl and scour away. I sincerely request this in the name of He who saw through all the phonies and dealt with them appropriately Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Do not play the blame game.

repent

 

Then he sent his brothers away, and as they were leaving he said to them, “Don’t quarrel on the way!” Genesis 45:24 New International Version

Joseph knew his brothers would be quarreling over who was responsible for him being mistreated when his father found out that he was alive and was going to meet him in Egypt.

Don’t we all do the same thing with the “not my fault, your fault” syndrome?

Is it not better to be mature and take responsibility for our wrongs and try to correct them? I know personally of some relationships that were destroyed that were once close because of this very action.

Are you experiencing trouble in a relationship with your spouse, children, parents, friends or co-workers?

Could it be that it is because you are being immature and irresponsible in not apologizing?

Sometimes these problems can only be solved by a good Christian councilor. I say Christian because their wisdom will come from the Bible which is the best guidance book of them all.

Why not try some Christian resource like Focus on the Family and see if they can suggest a councilor in your area?

If the other one or ones involved in this refuse to attend then go yourself.

That is exactly what happened to me and now I have peace while they are still warring within themselves and amongst themselves.

A wise man seeks wise council Proverbs 1:5 New International Version Prayer:

Please Jehovah Elohim (God our eternal creator) bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to resolve the problem of _________________ (write in what the problem is) my relationship with _____________ (write in the name of those involved with the problem). If necessary please guide us to Christ centered councilors to help resolve this dispute. I honestly request this in the name of the greatest councilor of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

WARNING: Do not pray this unless you are sincere because if you are not sincere and pray this and Jehovah brings you the guidance you need and you reject it you will be held accountable for your refusal on the terrible Day of Judgment.

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

They are Hard but Necessary

 

REPENT

Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 Holy Bible, New International Version

They are three of the hardest words for us to say :”I am sorry.”

How many marriages and friendships have been destroyed because the offender refused to apologize?

You know why they refuse to apologize?

PRIDE!

When on the other hand you apologize, many times, you end up feeling better than the person who was offended.

They are hard but necessary steps you must take.

If on the other hand you are proud and arrogant and refuse to apologize what right do you have to expect God to forgive you or to give you any blessings?

If you refuse to forgive others why do you expect Jehovah to forgive you? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me a humble heart that is sincerely willing to repent to any and all who I offend, including You. I implore You in the name of He who taught true repentance best Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They were but Flesh.

For He remembered that they were but flesh. Psalm 78:39 New King James Version

Being of the flesh means we all have weaknesses and weak moments.

Occasionally we all give in to sinful desires. Come on now, have we not all bought something we could not afford and then regretted it later? Or how about the times when the mouth is in action before the brain is in gear and we say something we regret later?

Some call it human weakness.

As well we all have our weaknesses built into us from heredity, it is in our genes. So in some families alcoholism is heredity (which is why it is important to know your family roots and to teach them to your children).

Let Your tender mercies come to me, that I may live. Psalm 119:77 New King James Version

Do not allow the devil to deceive you into believing that when you sin Jehovah is mad at you and He rejects you and you lose your salvation. Do not allow the devil to con you into believing the lies that you must perform some act to be forgiven (like in the catholic church with their praying to beads or saying hail Maries).

You need to approach our loving Father in Heaven confess what you did, admit it was wrong and ask for forgiveness. Do it in the name of Jesus whose sacrificial blood has cleansed you of your sins when you repent.

 

Repent means to admit what you did. Admit it was wrong. And, when applicable make amends for the damage your sin has caused others.

If in your sin you have wronged someone you need to repeat this process with them.

 

A benefit of this is a healing in your spirit that washes away a guilt conscience. You will not have ulcers nor problems with sleep.

Repentance is as good for you as it is to the offended. Joseph- Anthony: Green

You do not need a physiatrist to tell you this. You need Jesus. You do not need to give your guilt to a physiatrist (and how many of them give you pills instead of dealing with the real issues?).

OBEDIANCE

 

You need to make it right with Jehovah.  Do not give excuses (the satanic ritual practiced by the world of not my fault it is societies fault or my parents fault or any one else’s fault. You are the one that committed the sin, you are responsible for it.) so just fess up and apologize for your sin. Make amends where it is appropriate. The offended soul may not forgive you but your conscience is clear before Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with forgiveness for my sins when I am weak and surrender to them and then sincerely repent of them. I exalt You in the name of he whose precious blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cure for Foot in Mouth Disease.

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Whoever guards his mouth and tongue. Keeps his soul from troubles.Proverbs 21:23 New King James Version                                            

We have all done it haven’t we?                                                                          

Put our foots in our mouths.                                                                            

That is where we speak thinking we have insight only to be shamed by another when we are proven wrong.                                                            

 The best way to cure foot in mouth disease is to watch your mouth. Personally many times someone has tried to argue with me and it looks like they have won. Later upon reflecting on what was said I believe the Holy Spirit guides me into knowledge on the subject and the next day I challenge the agitator and they are shamed. I do not intend to shame them but to correct erroneous thought.                                                   

The heart of the righteous studies how to answer, But the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil. Proverbs 15:28 New King James Version                                                     

At the same time there are many wolves out there that like nothing more than to be agitators and laugh at watching someone go off. They try to get under your skin to cause a fight. On the internet they are known as trolls. They troll like a fisherman.                                                               

Many times a fish will bite the lure just because the fisherman keeps on casting in their face.                                                                                            

 Trolls do the same thing. They troll for the weak to pick fights with.             

I just ask them if they have personal problems and if they would like me to offer information on how to deal with their issues. As well I let them know I am praying for them. They quickly leave me alone.                        

Before you speak ask yourself these questions: Is it necessary? If not then shut up.                                                                                                         

Is this the right place?                                                                                 

 I prefer to speak with someone one on one instead of in a crowd. If they are in a crowd their pride can be hurt which will back them into a wall and they become defensive.                                                                                 

Is it the right time?                                                                                                 

If it is at work and it is personal choose a quiet place like a café to talk with them instead of causing an incident at work. 

Is it being said in love?

Remember Christ is love, satan is war. If you are looking to pick a fight guess which one you are serving?    Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                         

 Am I qualified to talk about the subject?                                                            

I have met many who thought they were Mr. Know It Alls only to be made to look foolish because they did not know anything about the subject (myself included on occasion).                                                       

Prayer: Please KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the wisdom to know when to speak and how to speak to help others and there by bring glory to Your Holy name as I am a representative of You. I humbly request this in the name of the most eloquent speaker of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Fess Up

trio of dazziling dancing pinkies

It is the only way

We all mess up in life don’t we? Welcome to life. When we confess our sins before God they are forgiven. We all have things that are generically inherited that we know is wrong. Yet, they have too strong a grip on us. That is why it is important to lay them at the feet of Jesus. Not only will He forgive us but when we place these terrible things at His feet, He will heal us.

I am an alcoholic that was inherited by family genes. For years I tried quitting only to fail. One day while hanging my head in the toilet puking I called out to Jesus “Jesus save me or I am going to die. This is too strong for me to handle.” In that instant I stopped drinking and have not touched a drop since. Since then Jesus has molded me to serve Him.

Do not allow your sin to hang over your head like the Sword of Damocles, give it to Jesus.

But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you.Psalm 130:4 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ropheka (Jesus our healer) for the incredible blessing of healing me from that destructive force in my life. Thank you for giving me a purpose in live in serving You. I give thanks in Your magnificent balming name. Amen.

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

Gain a Heart at Peace

FORGIVE EACH OTHER

The best overall medicine.

“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones” (Proverbs 14:30 New International Version).

I recently read a report that says that doctors all over the world agree that anger, worry and bitterness is the cause of the majority of all illness.

Indeed I see people that are angry spiteful people who are very sick. When you try to explain they need to let go of past wrongs they stubbornly foolhardily refuse. They wickedly hang on to past wrongs like you would hang on to the railing on a boat during heavy weather at sea. As they get older and older there is less and less happiness in their lives, they become more and more isolated and sicker and sicker. Finally they end their days all alone in a room waiting to die. What a waste of life.

I have seen old people who are very happy and content. These are people who have gone through some very difficult times. How do they do it? They will gladly share the secret with you. It is giving it all to Jesus and being happy to have such a loving relationship with him.

If you want a great example listen to Corrie Ten Booms sermons. She watched her family die in the concentration camps and experienced the cruel treatment at the hands of the Nazi’s. She is a great example of the fulfillment of this verse.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) please always give all my anger, frustration, hurt and worry into Your wonderful healing hands. Then my beloved guide me where I can emulate the Mater Healer and help heal someone in this hurting world. I humbly beseech You in the name of the greatest Healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

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