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.

The Very Best and Highest Attainment.

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

 “Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There have been numerous times when I behaved with integrity and was called up on the carpet for it on employment contracts. I was afraid and did not know what to say so did the only option available to me:I got down on my knees and prayed. When the show down occurred many in the crowd laughed foolishly believing that I was going to suffer greatly for my integrity. I opened my mouth and the Holy Spirit spoke through me. The crowd was silent and most times the judge ruled in my favor. The wicked ones were the losers in the encounter no matter how many of them there were, who their connections were or how much money or power they thought they had.

There have been times of disaster when I knew not what to say nor the actions to take. I sincerely intensely prayed and the Holy Spirit guided my words and actions that relieved the suffering and steered those around me away from the disaster. Afterwards I wondered where that wisdom and strength came form and praised Jehovah for it upon reflection.

“The very best and highest attainment in this life is to remain still and let God act and speak in you.”  Meister Eckhart

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for speaking through me when brought before the authorities. Thank you for blessing me with encouraging, healing and strengthening words to share with those enduring disasters. I extol Thee in the name of He whose words shamed the wicked ones and healed the sick , hurt and infirm ones Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Show You Great and Mighty Things

devine-communion

 ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’ Jeremiah 33:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The best education you can get is in the University of Jehovah. Man the courses provided there are unimaginable. One of the benefits of attending this university is that the courses are never ending. Just as you complete one another one begins. Just when you naively belief there is nothing else to learn something pops up that stuns and amazes you.

Yes there are exams but you cannot study for them. Either you have learned them or you have to repeat the course. There is no failing just that you need more tutoring to digest what is being taught.

Of course we have our mentor ( The Holy Spirit ) is on twenty four hour call. He may not answer your call all the time though. That is because He does not want you to get lazy and have Him do all your thinking for you. As you progress at this university you fall deeper and deeper in love with the faculty:

The headmaster is a kindly Father called Jehovah, the Head Teacher is a patient teacher by the name of Jesus Christ and the mentor is truly awesome the manner in which He tutors to each of us individually by the name of The Holy Spirit.

The more you are at this university the more time you desire to talk with these three incredible deans ( some call it prayer).

The admission price is accepting Jesus Christ as your savior, king and best friend. That you as such, have become His bondsman or woman ( which means you freely serve them out of love ). The invitation is open to all, rich and poor, young and old of every nationality.

Why do you not come join us?

The graduation services are held in a beautiful place that will be our eternal home, it is called Heaven.

“What wings are to a bird and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.” Corrie Ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with entry into the most amazing school there can every be with the most awesome teachers. Thank you for the free life time enrolment and for the patience with this some times dull witted student. I praise You in the name of He whose blood paid the tuition fee Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Great and Priceless Treasure.

christs-love-blossom-in-your-heart

 Great and priceless treasure is in the house of the [consistently] righteous one [who seeks godly instruction and grows in wisdom], But trouble is in the income of the wicked one [who rejects the laws of God]. Proverbs 15:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To me the greatest treasure is spiritual.

Therefore to me the greatest treasure is a loving relationship with Jehovah. This is indeed a priceless treasure, what is there that is even of equal value much less worth more?

The treasure chest consists of an endearing love that is constantly expanding. An assurance that Jehovah is always there to guide me through rough waters and to protect me from the tsunamis of troubles that is too great for me to bear. A awesome teacher that teaches me to be a child of His with integrity and teaches me how to avoid many troubles, that teaches me wisdom. A incredible relationship that blesses me with amazing spiritual strength to conquer and destroy weaknesses that attempt to destroy me.

Oh what a truly amazing treasure this is.

The greatest treasure is the treasure of an amazing loving relationship with Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand there is much truth in the adage: There is no peace for the wicked. They are always fretting to the point of insomnia and paranoia about someone whom they have done wrong jumping out to get them. They toss and turn worrying about their material wealth vanishing and leaving them in the gutter. Then there is the suffering from enduring Jehovahs wrath for their evil wickedness. Their mental and physical health is slowly destroyed until they are a shell of a human being.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with providing me with a incredible loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for the unending riches that comes with this blessing like peace, love, joy and confidence. I extol Thee in the name of He whose blood is the key that opens up this treasure box Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

How Much do You Trust?

in-his-arms

  Then they asked Him, “What are we to do, so that we may habitually be doing the works of God?” Jesus answered, “This is the work of God: that you believe [adhere to, trust in, rely on, and have faith] in the One whom He has sent.” John 6:28-29 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

How much do you trust Jehovah?

Be careful.

If you declare that you have complete trust in Him He will put you to the test and how foolish will you look then.

Personally I do not believe any Christian has complete and total trust in Jehovah. That is why we need to say: yes I believe, help my belief.”

That does not make sense does it?

Yes it does completely make sense.

We have faith in what Jehovah says is true but many times there is reservations about what He is saying to us. That is why we need to request that He bless us with enlarging our faith.

The just and upright shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every morning we need to ask by faith that Jehovah will direct our footsteps in our thoughts, words and deeds. Then, in trust we believe He will do it.

But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you do not trust (have faith ) in Jesus then why are you following someone you do not have faith in? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for having such Divine trust in me and confidence in me that You have some times in baby steps some times in leaps enlarged me trust in You and Your loving ways. I extol Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Jesus Promised His Disciples Three Things.

chief-duty

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I find with each passing day Satan is controlling and enlarging his dominion over the world, it is called politically correct or liberalism.

They are becoming more brave with their filthy lies and demanding that everyone conform to their perverted way of thinking. If you disagree you will be branded as intolerant, racist, sexist or whatever ist.

We who are of Christ are to be fearless and stand up to their wicked filth and expose them for their hideous creatures they are. We are to be bold for Christ. If we do not speak up for the truth then how many gullible will fall for their lies and be dammed to Hell because of it.

You cannot be politically correct and Christ correct at the same time. Joseph- Anthony; Green.

This of course will mean you are in constant trouble with the “authorities” but that is to be expected. I am not afraid of them because the Holy Spirit blesses me with power and wisdom, which every child of satan is terrified of and hates.

“We’re in spiritual combat – cosmic combat for the heart and soul of humankind.” — Chuck Colson

The other thing I have observed is that there is an increase in mental illness and depression. The reason for this is because there can be and will be no peace and joy except that of those blessed with a Divine relationship with Christ. Yes we experience the same troubles as the world if not more. The difference is that we have Christ to comfort, encourage and guide us through our storms, the world does not.

“Jesus promised his disciples three things – that they would be completely fearless, absurdly happy and in constant trouble.” — G. K. Chesterton

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your wisdom, strength, fortitude and boldness in the unceasing battle between the wicked ones and Your soldier of Christ. I praise You in the name of my Warrior King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Bearing Graciously with One Another

 


Bearing graciously with one another, and willingly forgiving each other if one has a cause for complaint against another; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so should you forgive. Colossians 3:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Ever notice how some folks can just rub your nerves raw for the simplest little thing.

When that happens to me, I pray that the Lord blesses me with a means to not only endure it but to be gracious to the offender. Most times they are not even aware of their offense ( here is a little tip for you, when you are traveling on the public transit, at work or school, in the library or anywhere in public always carry little packets of cleanex. That way when someone is constantly sniffling graciously offer them some cleanex. When they are embarrassed just explain to them that that is why you carry the cleanex because you get the sniffles as well. It makes them feel at ease and may be a great way to begin a conversation with them).

When there is a dispute between you and another pick a quiet place to bring it up graciously ( of course it is always best to have a mentor to offer suggestions on how to handle the matter, that way they will not feel like they are being put on the attack which will cause them to not only shut down but also to become defensive and there will be no resolution. If the matter cannot be resolved discreetly, the next time bring in a mediator.

Now yes the Lord has forgiven us but we are not to allow abusive behavior on the behalf of another either. Jesus never tolerated it and never should we .

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me with an abundance of You Divine love so that I will be blessed with wisdom and strength to exhibit Your grace unto others as You have exceedingly done for me. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He who was amazingly patient, wise and loving unto His disciple Jesus Christ. Amen

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