The Pineapple or the Jimsonweed?

 

  Your adornment must not be merely external—with interweaving and elaborate knotting of the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or [being superficially preoccupied with] dressing in expensive clothes; but let it be [the inner beauty of] the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, [one that is calm and self-controlled, not overanxious, but serene and spiritually mature] which is very precious in the sight of God. 1 Peter 3:3-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every time I see these poor souls mutilate their bodies with tattoos or put piercings all over their bodies that make them look like freaks in a side show it makes me want to cry. They are shallow creatures who do this to draw attention to themselves. They are screaming out: “ Look at me, look at me.!”

The same can be said for those that use excessive makeup to make themselves look like whores and are proud of it.

What type of man are you attracting to yourself and guess what he wants from you?

I believe it is an insult to Jehovah.

Jehovah made you the way you are and it is beautiful in His eyes. When you mutilate your body to look like a freak you are saying that you think Jehovah has made junk and you have made it better. What a shame, what a disgrace.

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen beauty queens that are real Jimsonweed with their personalities. Jimsonweed  is a small beautiful flower that when digested leads to the ultimate slow agonizing death. So too it is being with them. They are beautiful on the outside but on the inside they are cruel, cold hearted, selfish, and self centered.

I have been with Plane Janes who are not much to look at but have a heart but whose heart is sweet like a pineapple and is good for the soul as pineapples are good for the bodies health.

Which one are you?

If you are the jimsonweed be fair warned the time will come when you will be forced to digest you own vile venom. If you are a pineapple you will be blessed with those who are pineapples around you .

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating a special pineapple in my heart to nourish and heal those of the world. Please weed out any jimsonweed that begins to poison my heart and choke out the pineapple. I exalt You in the name of He who spoke the most spiritually nourishing and healing words ever Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Pleasing to God.

goodness-is

 Do not neglect to do good, to contribute [to the needy of the church as an expression of fellowship], for such sacrifices are always pleasing to God. Hebrews 13:15-16 Amplified Bible

Have you ever held the door open for someone and they do not say thank you (indeed, I have had many women become down right nasty about it) and you feel hurt by it?

Do not feel hurt by it, take comfort that Jehovah sees your act of goodness and is well pleased by it.

Do not seek to please man (or woman) for it can lead to disappointment, rather seek to please Jehovah. He always appreciates it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Have you ever helped someone that is having difficulty on a project and when it is completed they take all the credit for it, not even acknowledging your contribution? You feel used and abused.

Do not feel angry or hurt take comfort that Jehovah sees your act of goodness and is well pleased by it.

Have you ever worked hard to make a great meal for your family and they do not even say thank you for the effort and time you put into it?

Do not feel angry or hurt take comfort that Jehovah sees your act of goodness and is well pleased by it.

The list goes on.

Learning to do things to please Jehovah and not just to be kind and considerate to others comforts and encourages me all the time because I know it is appreciated to the one I love the most. That is why I enjoy doing good for others even when it is not appreciated.

No matter how big or small the good you do here on earth, they are all great in Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with an amazing loving relationship with You. Thank you for the most awesome teacher  (the Holy Spirit) who has mentored me into emulating Your love unto others. Just knowing my words and actions are pleasing to You my cherished love is all the reward I need. I exalt You in the name of He who pleased You the most by shedding His precious blood for my entrance fee into Your holy family Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Breakdown of Society.

descrection

 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 Holy Bible, New King James Version

I believe that when you break down the family, you break down society. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now that does not mean you are to remain in an abusive relationship.

“Train your child in the way in which you know you should have gone yourself.” Charles H. Spurgeon

How many times have we reflected on our past and wish we could change it?

When you are a parent you can pass these mistakes as well as your triumphs onto your children to help guide them through life.

“The tasks connected with the home are the fundamental tasks of humanity.” Theodore Roosevelt

For those of us that are old enough to remember do you remember those that in my opinion are destroyer of the family the  (womens lib) spewing on how they were on a biological clock and wanted to get pregnant ? Because they relegated men to the trash can they wanted to get pregnant by artificial insemination because they said they did not need a father in the family. Look at the results. Could it be boys raised by feminists are confused as how to be a man because there were none in their family life? Could that be why so many males today are so feminine?

In many Asian countries the mother raises the children and could that by why there is so much homosexuality there and the men are so feminine there?

“There is only one way to bring up a child in the way he should go and that is to travel that way yourself.” Abraham Lincoln

We need to walk with our children through life not shove them off to babysitters like sports teams or other extra curricular activities. We need to spend time with them not just having fun but teaching them life lessons. Other wise, when they leave the nest they will be completely unprepared for the world out there.

The most important duty of every parent and grandparent is to teach them about Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To help them become adopted members of a Holy Family.

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless those who were raised fatherless to be introduced unto You so that will be blessed to know what a father is. This blessing they will in turn teach their children and may it restore Godly families to our society which so desperately needs it. I humbly request this in the name of my adored bib brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

That isn’t the end of it.

RESTLESS HEART

Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in
you …Philippians 2:12-13 King James Bible


Once we have accepted Jesus that isn’t the end of it. Going to church once a week isn’t the end of it.
No, brothers and sisters salvation is not a one off encounter.

It is a weekly, a daily, an hourly and indeed a moment by moment event.

We must surrender all aspects of our lives to Christ in order to maintain our salvation. If we do not it may happen as slow as molasses or it may be as fast and powerful as an avalanche. One thing is certain though, we WILL, lose our salvation when it is not directed and controlled by Christ.

Fear and trembling is referring to awe and respect. We should be in awe of Gods love for us and respect His decisions on what is right for us. Let His thoughts direct every aspect of our lives.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Psalm 139:17, New International Version                                
   

They are not only jewels of wisdom, but daily guidance references as well.

 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in  the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
    — Ephesians 3:20-21 the new international version  

Prayer: Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) thank you for your gracious gift of salvation. Please help me to surrender every aspect to your intelligent guidance in my life. In the name of the consummate councilor Jesus Christ. Amen                                                            

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

No Hide and Seek.

PAPPAS CHILDREN

 I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. Proverbs 8:17 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Think about your most loving relationship whether it is with your wife or husband, whether it is with your children, or whoever.

How much time do you spend with them?

How much time do you spend sharing a conversation with them?

How much do you enjoy doing things for them to make them happy because you love them?

Now think if you were separated from each other with no contact for tens years and met again. Think of how much you have changed so that you do not even know each other any more.

Now think about how much time you spend with Jehovah, how much time you spend in conversation with Him, how much you enjoy doing things for Him to make them happy because you love Him. Is your relationship with Him warm and loving or cold and dead? Whose fault is that?

It is not whether Jehovah is far from you but rather whether you are far from Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The more you read your Bible the more Jehovah reveals Himself to us and the only way we can share a magnificent loving relationship with Him.

“A knowledge of the Bible is essential to a rich and meaningful life.” Billy Graham

Prayer is enjoying an open, honest sincere talk with your best friend, most special lover and wisest teacher. Relax in His presence. Listen and obey what He says to you because He only wants what is best for the child He so deeply loves. Joseph- Anthony: Green

How much time do you spend just talking with Jehovah and listening to Him, not just whining for Him to give you things like a spoiled brat but talking with your best and most intimate friend? Reading our Bible every day and talking with our most intimate friend is the core essential to enjoying a close loving relationship with Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our loving Heavenly Father) for blessing me with the most amazing loving relation there could ever be. I praise You in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless 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.

Have You Received This Abundant Free Gift Yet?

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:1-4  New International Version

This is the abundant precious gift Jehovah gives all who receive Christ as their savior and live by Gods Law.

Now what is grace?

1a: unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification b: a virtue coming from God c: a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine grace

2a: approvalfavor <stayed in his good gracesbarchaic: mercypardon c: a special favor : privilege <each in his place, by right, not grace, shall rule his heritage — Rudyard Kipling

disposition to or an act or instance of kindness, courtesy, or clemency Webster’s Dictionary

Isn’t that incredible?  Jehovah is always there to help us and there is nothing too big or complicated for Him to handle. He loves to shower us with His Divine kindness.

Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

JESUS BRING PEACE

And, we can have it too. It just takes accepting Jesus as our Savior.

What is peace?

Peace : a state of tranquillity or quiet: as a: freedom from civil disturbance b:a state of security or order within a community

: freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions

: harmony in personal relations

These are all provided in generous amounts when we enjoy a loving obedient relationship with Christ. He will bless us with His Divine peace in the roughest of storms and quiet us in His cherished love, comfort, strength and encouragement.

What is Devine?

relating to or coming from God or a god

very good

When we are blessed with a loving obedient relationship coming from Jehovah is it so much more than just good and there are no words to describe it.

All of these definitions are from  Webster’s Dictionary

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God our Provider) for the abundant magnificent treasure You unceasingly shower upon us as You reveal Your awesomeness to for us to feast upon. In the name of the Heavenly King Jesus Christ we give thanks. Amen

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