Which Book Are You Showing?

the devious reward

 One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth. Proverbs 13:7, New International Version

It is said that in China there are three sets of books. One set you show the tax man at tax time that shows you are poor.

One set you show people who want to invest in your company that says you are rich. In reality they are no where near that wealthy.

Next they have a set of book that states that they are one step from bankruptcy. Again it i a lie. They are doing okay but do not want to pay the taxes. 

How many times do we see rich people who claim to be poor and bankrupt to cheat investors out of money?

In reality they have tons of money stashed off shore and life like kings while laughing at the suckers they fooled.

At the opposite end of the scale, how many times do wee see poor people pretending to be rich (another phrase may be “Keeping up with the Jones’” Just out of curiosity, who are these Jones’ anyway? I have never met them, have you?) They strut around like they are so haughty and pretend to be wealthy but in reality they are in debt up to their eyeballs playing this stupid game.

It is not the fact that a person has riches that keeps them from heaven, but the fact that riches have them. Dr. Caird

Then lastly there is the real set of books which states how much the man or woman is really worth. That one they try to hide.

My motto is “who are you that I have to impress you?

This is me, if you like me let’s be friends, if you don’t like me let’s try to get along in spite of our differences.”

Now  we all want and need attention sometimes, but let’s be wise, not stupid.

If you pretend to be something you are not, when the truth is discovered you will be the laughing stock and will be humiliated.

On the other side of the coin is Jesus. He says: “Come as you are, warts and all. I will love you.”

Speaking from experience I can assure you that no earthly relationship can even begin to compare to the exhilarating and awesome relationship Jesus has to offer and will give to any and all who accept Him.

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with the wisdom and integrity to live the life of truth. You, Jehovah and the Holy Spirit are the only ones I desire to impress.

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So How’s That Going Now Eh?

FURNACE OF HELL

“Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10 New International; Version.

I remember in the sixties and seventies when the mantra was: sex, drugs and rock and roll. Being an infant in Christ I knew this was wrong and refused to go along with the crowd. Yes I was laughed at and bullied a lot, but still wouldn’t back down.

Now over forty years later when I go back home sometimes I run into that crowd. Boy do they look ancient. Their bodies are all broken down from living in the fast lane. They are shells of human beings. They have no family or real friends. They have no real purpose in life, yet stubbornly cling to those destructive dogmas. Many of them are either homeless or living in decrepit buildings.  I look at them and ask them: “So how’s that going now eh, with your sex, drugs and rock and roll?” 

It is not that I am being arrogant towards them but am asking if they have had enough of this life and am willing to come to Christ. They all laugh and are proud of their lifestyle (although I do not know why) and mock me for being a Christian.

No man is free who is a slave to the flesh. Seneca

I on the other hand have slowly over decades  blossomed into a beautiful flower for Christ. Yes my service to Him has been hard, but He was and is with me every step of the way. We have planted a lot of seeds all over the world. Walking with Jesus brings a life filled with divine love, joy and hope.

If someone is trying to manipulate you into doing drugs or having premarital sex don’t walk away from them, RUN.

As surely as the sun rises is the east so too will the vile wickeds lifestyle lead to pain, emptiness, heartache and loneliness. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Take it from an old fart that has both lived it and seen it. You are too precious to Jesus to throw your life away.

”If we (freely) admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins (dismiss our lawlessness) and (continuously) cleanse us from all unrighteousness (everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action)” 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

If you are living that lifestyle now call out to Jesus now. He is always there, He always cares. He loves you.

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him firm in your faith, the God of all grace, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.” 1 Peter 5: 6-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with the wisdom of what is righteous and the strength to walk in its path and to not deviate from it. Thank you for being so gracious as to forgive me when I stray from that path and realize it and repent You eagerly help me to regain my footing upon the Path of Righteousness. I exalt You in the name of He who is the epitimy of righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

All Men have Seen.

jehovahs-beauty

 All men have seen God’s work Job 36:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whenever anyone of these so called atheists challenge me to prove there is a God I humbly ask them to spend a day with me.

We will spend it in Gods Cathedral ( nature ).

This can be by a quiet little stream ,in the forest , in a meadow, by the shores of a lake or ocean.

I ask them to close their eyes and take a deep breath. After a few of these they are asked to slowly open their eyes. Then Jehovah reveals Himself to them through the serenade of the wild birds, the singing of the waves as they caress the shore, the beautiful gentle dance of wildflowers in the meadow or the hypnotic soft sway of trees as they preform natures ballet just like the wild flowers do, or look at the clouds as they dance across the sky.

They will drink in the intoxicating fragrance of the wildflowers or the musky scent from the forest. They feel the tender warmth of the sun as it wraps itself around them like a comforting warm blanket on a cold day.

They feel the delicate breeze softly caress them.

In the end they are at one with Jehovah being relaxed and at peace with themselves and the world.

The closer you get to nature, the closer you get to Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony; Green.

The question then is asked if they have experienced Jehovah now. Most will look at me with an expression of awe and wonderment like little children. Later of course the majority will deny this and flippantly mock it saying it was just nature that created this experience not a fairy tale creation in the sky.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with opening my eyes to all the awesome wonders that You have lovingly created that exists all around me every moment of every day. Please bless me with the wisdom to reveal this to those who are walking blindly of Your majesty. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was there with You in the begging of this incredible creation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Will Find It.

<!--

And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 10:38-39 New King James Version

How many for eons have folks wondered the meaning of life?

They foolishly waste their time amassing material wealth.

Those with the most toys when they die are not the happiest nor the riches, they are the saddest and poorest in spirit., Joseph- Anthony: Green

Chasing after satanic religions like buddihism or new agers still leaves them with a empty feeling and purpose.

There is only one way to enlightenment and that is through the Holy Spirit. All else is satan disguised as light as he leads you down to an eternal Hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Some try to maintain a super fit body all of their lives, sorry but you will be in for quite the shock on your death bed when you realize it was all for naught. We all die and then go to our eternal rewards’. That is not to say we should not take proper care of our bodies, just do not worship them.

Some find it in raising a family. Oh the deep sadness when their children grow up and they are left with an empty nest and an empty heart, especially if they distance themselves from you which is all too common today. There is nothing wrong with enjoying having a Christian family but those who worship their children and grand children are raising selfish, self centered child which grow into selfish, self centered adults. The only time they call mommy or daddy or grandma or grandpa is when they want money. They do not appreciate it and give nothing in return. They never call, come to visit or help. They are waiting for them to die so they can get their inheritance and spend it foolishly.  I unfortunately see all too often as seniors live a daily hell of loneliness and deep sadness in isolation. This is a shame upon the children and a disgrace.

Others worship their careers. It is all for naught. They will lose it when their career is out dated, which happens all too common today. In many instances people are replaced by robots. How about when you retire, then what are you going to do with your life if it has been centered on your career?

But when we become free willing servant to Christ our King we will find the true meaning of their lives when Jehovah blesses us with revealing it to them. It will not be easy the following path Jehovah has chosen for you but well worth it in our daily lives and in our eternal ones.

Following Christ is not easy but the rewards are Heavenly. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi – Shepherd for being such a patient and wise Shepherd to this at times obstinate little , sheep. Please bless all who place their faith in You with guiding them to the lives You have purposed for them before they were even born. I exalt You and humble beseech You in the name of the greatest shepherd Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovah bless you today and every day with His precious love, joy and peace.

Is a Slave.

 

RUN TO THE LORD

Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin John 8:34 New King James Version                                                              

With out Christ we are all slaves.

Some people today call this sin which enslaves us genetics. I believe that is true and if you trace your family history it will prove it. I see traces of my old bad dispositions in three previous generations and some previous addictions can be traced back many generations.

That does not excuse the sin.

If you have cancer you can go for treatment to kill it and eradicate it from your body. If you do not, it will grow until it ultimately kills you in a slow agonizing death.

It is the same with sin, it starts out small but if not given immediate treatment it will slowly kill your physical life and condemn you to an eternal hell. It only gets worse with time.

I have seen it destroy many who I grew up with in their later years.

There is only one cure for habitual sin and that is in the power of Christ. I knew my addiction almost killed me until I completely surrendered it to Jesus.

Yes you can still be a Christian and have this sin because you have not reached the end of your rope to surrender it to Jesus. For me it took two decades to reach that point. We all have a tendency to believe we are weak if we cannot handle it ourselves which is a great lie from Satan.

The truth is that we need the complete surrender of our sin to Christ to be set free from it.

It is when we let go of the end of the rope that Christ can and will do His greatest work in us. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                                                               

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32 New King James Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for redeeming my lost soul and blessing me with the greatest loving relationship there every was, is or will be. I praise You in the name of He whose precious blood made this amazing gift possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

One Way Satan Deceives

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

What does Satan’s light look like?

Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 New International Version

What does Satan’s light look like?

One way Satan deceives Christians is with the gospel of prosperity.

Oh yes, you become a Christian and God becomes your servant giving you everything you want like a spoiled brat.

Becoming a servant of Christ (where you serve Him, not He serves you) is hard and encompasses a lot of sacrifice.

From my own personal experience and that of others being a Christian means a lot of suffering.

How many so called Christians run away at the first experience of hafting to chose Christ and suffer for it?

Are you ready to lose your friends because you refuse to go out and get drunk on the weekend and have one night stands or to use vulgar language?

Are you ready to lose your job because you refuse to cheat a client?

Are you ready to walk away from your family because they give you the choice between being a Christian or of being a member of your biological family?

Are you willing to leave the comforts of your home country to serve Christ in very primitive settings (no internet, no mobile phones, no MacDonald’s)?

I can say yes I have to each and every one of them.

A non suffering Christian is an oxymoron of words. The two do not belong together. Joseph- Anthony: Green

He can give you all your hearts desire so that you become lazy in your devotion to Christ.

“Give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal and so dishonor the name of my God.” Proverbs 30:8-9 New International Version

There was a time when I lived a very comfortable life. In that time the Bible was never read and there was no communion between God and me (except when I wanted something from Him). Oh, I did plenty of volunteer work but there was no relationship between God and me. That is not a blessing but a curse. You are so content with your life you spend no time with Christ. He can pretend to be an angel of light by being judgmental. He will bring up filth in your past and or condemn you when you fall into temptation.

When I first became a Christian I bragged that I could defeat Satan. He tempted me to have a beer. Being an alcoholic of course one beer led to another and me getting blotto. When I woke up surrounded by empty beer bottle Satan was right there to accuse me. “Look at you, how can you claim to be a Christian when you are nothing but a good for nothing drunk?” I felt deep shame, but thankfully repented to Jesus and then opened the Bible to this verse.

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free Romans. 8:1-2 New International Version

By the way, here is something for you self righteous to think about: When you are quick to point the finger accusingly at others, are you serving Christ, or are you serving Satan?

Do you drive people towards Christ or away from them?

He can pollute the law of grace. “Hey, Jesus died for your sins so it is okay to just go out and do what you want then say a few Hail Mary’s tomorrow.”

Do not ever abuse the precious painful sacrifice Christ made for you by believing you can willfully go out and commit any sin you want and Jesus will for give you.

Do you think you can go out and booze it up on Saturday night, them Go into Church, sing some songs, probably sleep last nights drunk off during the sermon and put the change from your pocket into the collection box and that is okay with Jesus? Do you think having an affair during the week, then pretending nothing happened on Sunday is okay with Jesus? Do you think Jesus understands of you cheated on that test last week is okay?

Unless you repent, you too will all perish. Luke 13:3 New International Version

Now repent not only means saying you are sorry, but also to STOP DOING IT!!!

He can be a twister.

He can twist Bible verses to say the exact opposite of what they mean. Just look at the above example.

Read about how he twisted the scripture to Jesus when he tempted Him in the desert.

That is why it is best to test what you believe is being said against other Christian teachers.

Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Proverbs 15:22New International Version

Prayer: Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit our Teacher) please open my eyes to Your truth and the wisdom to see through Satan’s destructive lies. I ask this in the name of He who saw through Satan’s wicked deception in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

H.O.M.E. Is

FACE TO FACE

I am looking forward to being there.

What do you look forward to experiencing when you go home? What do you think Heaven will be like? I look forward to going home.

H=Home is Heaven. It is where we will be with our beloved family and friends and with our most beloved, Jesus, forever. There we will meet new friends and everybody will share joyous meals together. It will not matter your race, if you are tall or short, fat or skinny, boy or girl. There will be no rich or poor there. We will all be in joyful harmony together. No family fights there.

O= Overjoyed to be where we will face no more sorrow or pain. We shall be constantly over filled with joy every moment for eternity. There will be joy being with Jesus. There will be joy being with old and new friends. There will be joy in a truly fulfilling career Jesus has planned just for us.

M=Meditation, where we can truly sit at the feet of Jesus and share in His marvelous wisdom. It will be a never ending education where we will run to class in eager anticipation of drinking in the wisdom of the greatest teacher. Imagine sitting at the feet of Noah and Moses sharing incredible stories with us. There will be no tests we will be graded on because what we eagerly learn will become a part of us.

E=Employment, this where we will all be employed with a specific career that will be fulfilling and we will look forward to going to forever more. No getting laid off there. No retirement there. Everyone will have a special job suited just for you waiting for you.

Oh how I look forward to going home.

How about you?

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 New International Version

This is what I believe our home will be like. I can’t even imagine what our mansion Jesus has prepared for us looks like. Just think no mortgage or foreclosure there. No burglars or fires or storms to destroy that home. We will always be safe and secure there.

I have not even got into all the fun we will have playing with all the animals there.

Although we look forward to going to Heaven to be with Jesus when we die, we should work hard to bring as many with us as we can. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh sweet Jesus Pryyand (Jesus our best friend) I do ever so much look forward to that special time spent with You and the rest of Your holy family in Heaven.

I long to sit at your feet and listen to Your delicious words of wisdom.

I can’t wait to see what wonderful career You have planned for me in this fantastic kingdom to serve You.

What a privilege it will be to share a meal with all the saints of Your incredible family.

I wait in eager anticipation in the name of our great, mighty and loving king Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

So Small but So Big

 

WORSHIP

Have you ever laid on a carpet of grass on a warm summers eve and gazed into the night sky

Try as man may with his fireworks , it can not match GODS nightly lightshow

As you lay there admiring the magnatude of the beautiy of it all have you ever felt small and igsignificant

I have

Then a thought gently caresses my mind

It was GOD who made all those stars

HE is so awsome

and you know what?

HE loves us

A feeling of happiness and peace envelopes me

I smile and softly say

Thank you my wonderful Father

Do You Have Any of These Three?

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Matthew 5:14-15 New King James Version

I am a light.

It seems as if people are attracted to me. I do not know why but on the bus, on the subway, sitting on a park bench people are attracted to me like a magnet and want to sit and talk with me. They say I emulate a feeling of friendliness and warmth.

I am a lighter in a dark room.

People always like to come to me with their problems even though we have never met. They say I emulate a feeling of love and care. I light up their lives with the wisdom that the Holy Spirit has blessed me on the correct way to handle life’s problems.

I am a memory stick.

When people challenge me with unfair criticism Bible verses just flow out of me like information stored on a memory stick on the correct answer to give and the proper way to handle them. The more you emulate Christ the more you become a magnet, lighter and memory stick.

Do you have any of these in your life?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for the wonderful blessing to be a light unto You to guide others to You. In gratitude I praise You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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