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.

The More We Become Like Him.

choices

 Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well beloved children [imitate their father]. Ephesians 5:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whether you like it or not when you become an adult your personality and disposition always imitates one of your parents. Being older now I can see this through four generations.

Now the more time we spend with someone the more we become like them ( just ask any couple that has been married for thirty years or more ) so it only stands to reason that the more time we spend with Christ the more we become like Him.

Now just like with any family there are rules of conduct and behaviour.

So too it is with Jesus’ family. Many of these rules will be foreign to us and down right unattainable. That is when we are blessed with the Divine assistance of the Holy Spirit who will mentor us through the muddy waters and discipline us when we go astray. The more we attain this the more we resemble Christ.

“The steady discipline of intimate friendship with Jesus results in men becoming like Him.” — H. E. Fosdick

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for all the help you have made in encouraging, guiding and moulding this child of Yours to emulate His cherished Heavenly Beloved every day in every way. I exalt You in the name of my big brother whom I idolize and desire to emulate 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.

Do Not be Conformed.

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

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every day it is getting stronger and stronger, the will of satan upon the world. He is trying to pollute folks minds into believing his depravity that what is wrong is right, like homosexuality and if it feels good do it. It oozes into every crack and nick of society form the poor to the rich. From every nationality and creed.

It is not bravery for Christ that we stand and fight but love for the gullible that are following the dammed into Hell. Joseph- Anthony; Green.

We are not to be conformed to those who are marching into Hell but to be transformed into fierce, brave warriors of Christ that stands up for what is right using the Bible as our sword to slice through the satanic lies ( please do not attempt to use physical force as that plays into satans hands and defeats the purpose).

“The opposite of bravery is not cowardice, but conformity.”  Robert Anthony

Prayer: Please Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) abundantly bless me wisdom ,strength and courage whenever the wicked ones come challenging me of Thy existence and of severing lucifer by spreading lies to pollute unsuspecting innocent minds to steer them away from You and towards Hell. I humbly request this in the name of He who defeated all the minions of lucifer with Thy divine truth Jesus Christ Amen.

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

This Will Draw Those Looking

chief-duty

 Be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12 New King James Version

Do not tell me, show me.

When I was a teacher in Asia one thing noted was that the citizens did not care what you said about yourself, they watched you and made their assessment of you from what they observed. That is a great way to determine a souls make up.

Unfortunately there are too many Christians that claim they are of Christ but do not walk the walk, especially in the west. Asian Christians call them “ marshmallow Christians”. That means they are the feel good Christians. They like to sing the new songs, go to group meetings and falsely believe that Jesus loves everyone so you can do whatever you like and because Jesus loves you, you are guaranteed a place in Heaven and that there is no Hell. Their speech and conduct is no different from the world so they have no appeal to those in the world.

We need to digest the Bible every day and pray for revelation on its meaning. Then when challenged we can justify our faith and expose the wicked ones lies while showing love.

This will draw those looking for meaning in life towards Christ by our actions.

During our trials and tribulations the world watches us and sees our faith in action. Even though we are suffering we never lose faith and that faith blesses us with the strength, comfort and encouragement to not only endure during the trials and tribulations but to grow stronger through them.

This will draw those looking for meaning in life towards Christ by our actions.

When those of the world change sex partners more than they change their underwear and are left feeling empty and looking for true love. When they see the pure loving relationship between a Christian and His Beloved in Heaven and how this creates a loving relationship and bonding between brothers and sisters in Christ and in a loving marriage relationship this will draw those looking for meaning in life towards Christ by our actions.

“If we seek God for our own good and profit, we are not seeking God.” Johannes Eckhart

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with bountiful opportunities to guide others unto You and Your Holy family through my words and actions. Thank you for the privilege of serving the most awesome King. In Your majestic name I exalt You. 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.
