Joy to the Heart.

The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. Psalm 19:8 New International Version

Precepts: a rule that says how people should behave Merriam Webster Dictionary

Radiant: having or showing an attractive quality of happiness, love, health, etc.  Merriam Webster Dictionary

The laws of Jehovah are right and they bring joy to our hearts when we are obedient unto them. This is because there is no doubt or guilt about our actions. He guides us in our interactions with others. This is all encompassing including our families, classmates, co-workers and everybody else in society. When we ask for Divine action in every aspect of our community He guides us in the proper etiquette to be taken.

The benefits of this are that there is a lot of peace in our lives instead of hate, resentment, bitterness anger and self pity. There is a lot less depression in our lives because we have the gentle strong love of Christ saturating our hearts blessing us with Divine peace. There is a lot less confusion in our lives because He guides us with Holy inspiration which is the ultimate in Holy Guidance.

As well, they bring us into closer communion with Him.

When we begin to obey Jehovahs commands in every aspect of our lives with our relationship with Him He opens our eyes to the right path to take in every aspect of our lives that is pleasing unto Him. He guides us in how to obey him, how to worship Him and how to love Him.

Radiant: having or showing an attractive quality of happiness, love, health, etc.  Merriam Webster Dictionary

The end result in this is a life filled with love, joy, mental and physical health (yes we suffer health problems just like those in the world but we have the rock solid foundation of His love, joy and wisdom in or hearts which emulates unto others) gracefulness, meekness and humbleness. This quality is rewarded with bringing in others who are receptive to desiring such a Heavenly relationship in their lives.

BEAUTY

When we have the glow of Jehovahs love in our hearts we emit a glowing love for the dark world to see. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for Your amazing wisdom that creates a heart that blossoms with peace, love and joy in my life and in our eternal loving relationship. I exalt You in the name of my most Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the love, joy and peace of Jesus bless you today and every day.

His Trouble Shall Return

He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown. Psalm 7:15-16 New King James Version

We have all met, I am sure, those who delight in causing trouble.  They love to cause fights between families, they love to cause fights between friends, they love to cause fights at work or school and they love to cause fights at public events (just look at soccer matches in Europe). They get their perverted pleasure from watching others fight and the grief it causes.

Give it time. It always comes back on them. And when it happens it always happens when they least expect it and at a very inopportune time (like say door crashers at a wedding reception or at a social event where it will cause them a lot of embarrassment.

The other thing I have noticed about them is that when they are young they believe they are getting away with it but as they age (it usually begins in their forties) they find themselves friendless. When they need companionship or help there is no one there for them.

Another thing I find happens is that they end up with tormentors (say a neighbour that is constantly playing loud music and doing things to anger them and laughing in their faces. Their lives are one of constant torment.

I have seen it too many times to count (that is one advantage of being older; we get to see them receive them fruits of their labours as it were). When confronted with these wicked creatures do not take things into your own hands but leave them in the hands of Jehovah. It may seem as if they are getting away with it and you may not see Jehovahs justice but be sure they will get what they have coming to them.

WRONG WALK

The seeds you plant today you will harvest in abundance tomorrow. Be careful the type of seeds you are planting. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. Proverbs 21:15 New International Version

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. Luke 18:7-8 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is the Supreme Judge) for promising and delivering on Your Divine word that You will ensure true justice is done to the wicked who persecute, harm and cheat Your beloved children. I thank You in the name of the King who will deliver eternal justice on the Day of Judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful 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.

The Two Go Together

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

The two go together.

For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Galatians 3:27

When we become baptized the Holy Spirit comes and lives within us.

Now to clothe ourselves with Christ is to emulate Him. That means we are to behave in a Christ like manner.

You see kids today tattooing themselves, swearing and being rebellious because they are emulating the filthy anti Christ’s in rap music. That is destructive and stupid, both for society and for themselves.

We Christians however are to be more like Christ in our behaviour and attitudes. Do you look down on somebody because they are a different colour, nationality or because they are poor? Jesus reached out to the Samaritan woman, the poor blind beggar and a hated Roman Centurion.

Are you impatient with someone who is not the brightest light bulb in the chandelier? Jesus was patient with His disciples for three years. Are you impatient with someone who is slow in the check out? It took God forty years of patience before the Israelites were ready to cross the Jordon River.

Are you too stingy to help the needy? Jesus suffered enormously on the cross to pay the cost for you to gain entry into a loving relationship with Jehovah.

If you are a Christian, prove it by your daily living. Like the old saying goes:Put up or shut up. You do not deserve the privilege of the name of Christian if you are not living the Christian lifestyle.

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: Please Jesus Immanuel (God amongst us) mold daily me to emultate You in all my thoughts, words and deeds. I humbly ask this in Your gracious name. Amen.

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

The Pig and the Cat.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

When do you think they are their happiest?

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Galatians 6:7-8 New International Version

The pig of course is its happiest when it is wallowing in the mud.

When do you think the cat is the happiest?

When it is laying contentedly in the warm sunlight of course.

So too it is with people. There are those who are quite content to wallow in sin. When they see a Christian living a godly life they snort and laugh at us. If you try to coax a pig into the sunlight it will viciously fight you. . There are some that after you share Jesus with them and they refuse you have to walk away. No matter what you do they refuse to come into the light.

Christians are the most contented when they are basking in the warmth of Christ’s love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Just as mud is disgusting to a cat, so too is a sinful life to a Christian A Christian must avoid fellowship with those in the filth of sin less they be drawn into it. That does not mean we are to refuse to talk with them. It does mean when they want to live the sinful lifestyle like using drugs we are to run away.

Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensive lifestyle, and always want more and more.’ José Mujica Uruguayan president gives his wages to the poor.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) please guide me to those living in the filth of sin and provide the opportunity to guide them into Your beautiful sunlight of love. If they enjoy the filth, give me the strength and wisdom to walk away knowing there is nothing I can say or do to change their ways. Thank you my beloved for Your wonderful warm sunshine of love that has blessed me so much. I ask this in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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 Not Give It Back.

TRUTHFUL LIPS

To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. Luke 6:29 New King James Version                                                                                                                    

When Jesus commands us to turn the other cheek he is referring to an eastern custom.      

                                                                                                                                

In the east a slap on the face was considered an insult as it is today in that part of the world.         

                                                                                                                             

So what Jesus is referring to is that when someone insults you do not go into their level and insult them back.                                                                                                 

Never lower yourself to an idiots level. They are stupid and stubborn, no matter what you do or say, they always refuse to listen to you. It is like talking to a brick wall. They will beat you every time because of their mass experience and make you look like an idiot. Let it be like water off a ducks back.                                                                                                                                          

If you insult them back, from my experience it only leads to a yelling match and harsh words are said that you will regret later.                                                                              

As well there are the wolves that delight in using insults to bait you into a useless stupid argument to get under your skin and then stand there and laugh at you when you get upset. These people are very immature and insecure. They abuse you to make themselves feel important and feel good about themselves instead of facing much more serious problems in their lives than the ones they are being judgmental towards you about.                                                                                          

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God who is gracious) please bless me that my words will be filled with Your wonderful grace. When encountering jackasses please give me the wisdom to politely smile and walk always knowing it is the righteous thing to do. I humbly ask this in the name of He who was filled with grace when encountering the jackasses in scribes clothing Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                    

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

How to Spot the Falsies.

RED IN A SEA OF GREEN

One way to spot false teachers is if they are smooth talkers.

Smooth talkers usually dress flashy. They always try to con you into their way of thinking. If you question them they become angry or accuse you of not having the supreme intelligence they have. They try to make you believe they are doing something for your good when in reality they are just conning you. I experienced this a lot. If you try to get them to get it in writing they try the guilt trip with you of :”What is the matter, don’t you trust me?” my reply is: “What’s the matter, why don’t you want to put it in writing if you are so honest?” They quickly leave me alone. There are many variations like aren’t I your friend? If you do not trust me I do not want to deal with you, this is for a limited time only, if you do not take it someone else will.

They are self centered instead of God centered. They like to talk about their accomplishments instead of what God has done through them or for them. Again they are flashy dressers that say look at me. They are greedy. They want money and fame instead of wanting to advance Christs kingdom and helping others. They pull at your strings to try to con you into giving them money to help others when in reality they take most of the money themselves. If you ask them to show you their accountability in writing where the money goes they accuse you of being stingy.

 

They always believe they are right. If you question their interpretation of Scripture they  accuse you of challenging their authority and try to put you on the defensive. I just stick to my guns.  They try to put others down so as to make themselves look good. Boy have I ever met a lot of those. When you try to defend yourself they just try to shout you down.

When you see any of these avoid them like the plague.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) please open my eyes to all the wolves in sheeps clothing that lurk around looking for the naive. When I do encounter them please bless me with the wisdom, grace, strength and meekness to defend myself and protect the gullible from their evil jaws. I ask this in the name of He who exposed the wolves when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Why the Bible Thumpers Are Wrong.

USE DISCRECION

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 New International Version

I have seen and experienced many good intentioned but wrong minded Christians who try to shove their version of the Bible down people’s throats. As a result they do more to drive unbelievers away from Christ than guide them to Christ. Consequently you are serving Satan rather than serving Christ.

 

I know because that is exactly what happened to me with that Satanic cult Jehovah’s Witnesses and with some people who were recovered alcoholics and drug addicts that became born again Christians. Because of their in your face method they drove me away from reading the Bible, praying or having anything to do with Christianity for many years.

The way that I find to be most productive is to begin with living the Christian life. Then pray that Jehovah arranges for you to encounter someone who is open to receiving Christ’s message.

When they see how you live they will be curious and inquire about why you live a different lifestyle. That is the best opportunity to share the message.

Now of course this includes studying your Bible and carrying it with you every day so that you are prepared.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God ) teach me when and how to use the correct opportunities to share You with those who are ready to hear Your Word.

I sincerely ask this in the name of He who waited thirty years before beginning His ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

 

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

One Causes the Other

BE GRACEFUL UNTO OTHERS

A cheerful heart is good medicine Proverbs 17:22 New International Version

 

A grateful heart produces a cheerful heart. The one cause the other.

When we are grateful to our loving Father for His numerous loving blessings He generously gives us, whether big or small, we are to be grateful for these blessings. As we give thanks it fills our heart with joy, or cheerfulness.

 

So too it should be when men, women or children do nice things for us.

As well when we cheerfully give to others it produces and joyous heart in our lives which promotes better physical and mental health as an added benefit.

A benefit of this is better health in both our spiritual and physical lives. Have you ever noticed ungrateful people walk around as if they are sucking lemons all day and they are always sick?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator)  create in me a cheerful, grateful heart towards others who are kind to me. Please instill in me a cheerful heart to spread like hot butter on bread love, joy and grace to other which in turn blesses me with cheerfulness. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose gift to me brings me constant cheer Jesus Christ. Amen.

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