A Bag with Holes in It.

 “Is it time for you yourselves to live in your [expensive] paneled houses while this house [of the Lord] lies in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! You have planted much, but you harvest little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have enough to be intoxicated; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns wages earns them just to put them in a bag with holes in it [because God has withheld His blessing].” Haggai 1:3-6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you have a bag with holes in it ( instead of bag insert wallet )?

Could it be because you are so selfish that you earn a penny and spend a dollar ( on yourself of course)? So when you refuse to share your wealth Jehovah allow the devil to tempt you into getting into dept to satisfy your unquenchable desire for more, more, more. Then you are miserable.

Could it be that you plant a lot of seeds to be friends with others while neglecting the crop of daily interaction with Jehovah so you harvest a little from your relationship with Him?

Could it be that in your quest for recognition form others ( self-centeredness- look at me, look at me) that you never get enough and go to foolish and many times dangerous lengths to get noticed by others instead of directing them to Jehovah? As a consequence you are never satisfied. Instead of nurturing a loving relationship with Jehovah you nurture your own ego and as a result you are cold with little or no love in your life. As a result the temple of Jehovah that resides within you is in ruins.

Prayer: I humbly pray my loving Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) that You daily guide this modest servant of Your to constantly build upon and glorify Your Holy Temple so that it is a beacon to those walking in the cold dark world to You amazing Temple. I sincerely request this in the name of He who shines the most brilliantly of Your holy temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Two Things I Have Asked of You.

 

 Two things I have asked of You; Do not deny them to me before I die: Keep deception and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion. So that I will not be full and deny You and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or that I will not be poor and steal, And so profane the name of my God. Proverbs 30:7-9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have been on both sides of this coin.

One time I was on hard times. You could not beg borrow or steal a job and my saving ran out. I went to the government for help but they were useless like usual. Because I could not pay my hydro there was no heat in the house in the dead of the winter ( it was warmer outside that it was inside that house) and the only food I had was when I walked up and down the ditch to collect pop bottles and beer bottles to get enough money for a loaf of bread and jar of peanut butter. That was my food for the week. In my suffering the devil came a knocking. He suggested I rob a bank to get money for food. I was seriously considering it then called out to Jehovah to take my life before I dishounoured Him. This went on every day for a month in one of the coldest bitterest winters on record at that time. Just as I was about to tie a noose a man came to the house that had hear about my plight. He not only paid all my bills, made sure the cupboards were full but put a fire under the lazy butts of the useless government workers and I received about four months back pay for unemployment insurance they kept form me for no other reason than they were lazy and incompetent.

On the other side of the coin about a decade after this I had a high paying job ( which the Americans walked in bought the company out and shut it down leaving over two hundred people without a job, including me). I lived in a nice apartment with good food in my belly. Even though I had this I stayed loyal unto Jehovah by serving Him as a volunteer at the local hospital and on a clean up crew for the local trails. Many times the tempter came a calling mocking me for my service and saying I should just take it easy and enjoy life.

Now, I live the best life, neither rich nor poor financially but am dependent upon Jehovah every day for my needs and He never lets me down.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for always providing just the right measure of everything necessary in my life every day. I thank you in the name of He who abundantly provided for the five thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

None of Those Who.

 

 Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed; Those who turn away from what is right and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed). Psalm 25:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Have you ever been treated unfairly by narcissists? They will use you and abuse you. They love to set you up to shame you and to start fights. They drag your good name through the mud and back stab you at every opportunity. They laugh and think it is funny.

I have experienced it with one who did this for decades. During this time Jehovah was teaching me how to deal with these foul creatures. At the time it looked like he was winning with his constant unwarranted attacks but slowly the tables turned and in time they turned faster. Now he will not show his face around me because the Lord has taught me to use the wicked ones wiles against him using the Holy Book and he looks like a fool and shames himself every time he opens his mouth.

Sometimes it is quick, sometimes it is slow but Jehovah always delivers on His promises. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength, wisdom, gracefulness and meekness to deal appropriately with the wolves that lurk amongst us. I praise You in the name of He who dealt most effectively with wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

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.

It Will Come Back and Bite You.

 

 For the sin of their mouths and the words of their lips, Let them even be trapped in their pride, And on account of the curses and lies which they tell. Psalm 59:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have encountered pathological liars, they are arrogant and proud. When they spew forth their vile poison in conversation I fall for it but the Lord reveals their lies afterwards. The next time I encounter them they are questioned about what they said. They try to cover up one lie with another. I play with them and they keep on making themselves look like idiots and liars. Then they become enraged and cry baby that they are being picked on. I have no mercy on them because they do not deserve it. These are the type of scum that would steal the food from a starving man and expect him to thank them for it ( and I have seen that happen a lot). They are selfish, self centered and they need constant attention because they lack self confidence.

The sad thing that I have discovered is that the habitual liars refuse to believe the truth even when it is undisputedly placed in front of them.

On the same terms because they are so accustomed to lies they believe them when they are told to them and are constantly made suckers out of by other pathological liars. That is quite comical to watch to see who can scam who the most.

“He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads” Thomas Jefferson

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chereb ( Lord the Sword ) bless me with the right words to pierce deeply into the cold, wicked filthy hearts of the wicked to mortally wound them. This is done to protect the innocent ones that they prey upon and to ,by Your grace, bring them unto conviction of their wicked tongue and into repentance. Please hold back my tongue that it does not speak with hate nor vengeance nor pride nor perverted pleasure at enjoying watching them suffer. I humbly request this in the name of He whose words pierced deeply into the pharisee’s and scribes wicked hearts Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I will Look in Triumph

CHRISTS POWER

 People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. John 3:19-20 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

When I first became a Christian it confused me why certain folks hated me with a passion even though I did nothing to offend them.

After reading this first the Lord blessed me with understanding.

They hate all Christians because we who walk in the Light convict those that enjoy walking in the darkness. They know what they are doing is wrong ( the Holy Spirit convicts them ) yet steadfastly refuse to repent of their wicked ways. They laugh and say that either there is no God or He does not care.

When they encounter us true Christians their conscience is pricked and they do not like it.

Then in their evil perverted minds they conceive every torment they can upon us and laugh at our discomfort. They foolishly believe they are getting away with it.

Time and again it clearly states that Jehovah is a God of justice and He will deliver terrifying justice on His time and in His way.

From my experience those whom the wicked tormented will be witnesses to it. I certainly did not enjoy it, indeed , many times I wanted to cry watching them suffer, but accept that Jehovah cannot allow the wicked to go unpunished.

Those who walk in Christ will be avenged in Gods time in Gods way. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We do not gloat over it but allow it to digest into our heart and mind so that we can share this testimony with other tormentors in the hopes that they will repent.

As well, it is encouraging to those who are being wickedly persecuted. The Lord is on my side, He is among those who help me;

Therefore I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for condemning the wicked ones and delivering true justice to the wicked ones that inflict pain and suffering upon the innocent ones. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ . Amen

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