What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered Jesus Christ . Amen

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

While the Wicked are in My Presence.

DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO CONTROL YOU

I said, “ I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will muzzle my mouth While the wicked are in my presence.” Psalm 39:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is great advice because the wicked love to trap you in your words and misquote you to start fights and then sit back and laugh.

I have encountered many who have a conversation with me about someone else only to take what I said and twist it around when they relay it to the person talked about. The purpose of this is to cause a fight which satisfies their perverted pleasure.

I have learned the hard way that when someone gossips about someone to me I just ask them a simple question which ends the filth right there and there : “ And what do you say about me when I am not around ? “ They have a look of shock and the conversation is abruptly ended.

Another thing I like to do is get a pen and paper and start to write down what they are saying. When they ask me what I am doing my reply is that I am documenting what they are saying so as not to misquote them if the other person comes to me about what was said. They squirm like a worm on a hot frying pan.

And finally try this one : “ It has nothing to do with me . “

I like to live by the saying : “ Be quick to listen and slow to speak. “ it keeps me out of a lot of trouble.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Your Divine wisdom to keep my mouth shut around the wicked ones. In this way You have delivered me from their wicked schemes. I praise You in the name of He who refused to be trapped by Satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Do not fall for the masquerade.

NO DOMINION

And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 New International Version

This is why it is important to read our Bible, spend time in prayer and spend time fellow shipping with other believers.

Satan will come to us as many masquerades. He may come to you as one of these deceivers who preach the gospel of prosperity. Give your life to Jesus and He will give you everything you desire.

Nothing is further from the truth.

A Christian life is a life of sacrifice and one that concentrates more upon receiving spiritual wealth in Christ that in material gains.

He may come to you in the form of someone who is controlling and informs you, you have committed an unforgivable sin and the only way out is to follow their cult. When we repent with a sincere heart we are forgiven, not by what someone says but by the blood of Jesus.

That is why we need our daily nourishment of Bible reading to gain knowledge and fellowship with both other brothers and sisters and daily communion with Jehovah God. By doing this we will be aware of the wicked ones masquerade and be able to defend ourselves from the attacks and to protect other innocent victims that the wicked one is preying upon.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with wisdom to defend myself from the wicked ones destructive schemes and with the power to defeat Him. Thank you for blessing me with Your Divine protection when I am weak and gullible. I extol You in the name of He whose death and resurrection defeated the wicked one for eternity Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless 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.

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

There is Nothing Concealed.

TRUST IN HIM

 

So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. Matthew 10:26 New International Version

Since becoming close with Christ I have noticed a familiar pattern pattern emerge in my social contacts in every aspect of my life.    There have been so many times wicked individuals have, unbeknownst to me, laid traps for me, sometimes by themselves, others in groups.

Being naive and gullible as I am I was  always an easy mark for the wicked schemers and con artists.

However, the result was always the same.

 

The trap they laid for me I escaped from and they always fell into their own wicked traps. They were stunned and enraged at me. Many times they pretentiously fake innocence. They slowly learned not to attempt such foolish endeavors again. As well, they avoid me like the plague because they cannot get away with their scams. They are so dishonest they cannot function in any other way in their lives but to lie, connive, deceive and or manipulate others.

When you hear of the wicked and powerful thinking up ways to ensnare you, do not be afraid of them but have faith in the wisest most powerful protector of them all , Jehovah God. He continually will arrange circumstances so that you walk away looking righteous while others laugh at the wicked fools as they end up covered with protectorthier own dung heaped upon their faces.

 

I have experienced this at school, work, with family and in relationships. It covers all aspects of our social life, school life and work life.

 

The wicked think they are so smart as they lay traps for the righteous but God in Heaven laughs at them as He guide the righteous around the traps and the wicked fall into their own traps. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

When you have a respectful, loving relationship with Christ He will protect you from such scam artists if you are obedient unto His heeding. This has been oh so true in my walk with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah (The Lord Saves) for rescuing me from the evil plots the wicked arrogantly lay before me to trap me. I joyfully thank you in the name of He who outwitted the Pharisee’s when they tried to outwit Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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