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.

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.

It is No Longer I Who Live.

with-all-your-heart

 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. Galatians 2:20 New King James Version

Have you gone through your crucifixion yet?

Every Christian must be crucified.

What that means is that there is something or someone we love more than Christ. What it all boils down to though is that through this love you are really loving yourself. So if you love a car it is because it makes you feel important and cool. That in essence is self love and that must be crucified.

If you are a Christian man or woman you are a walking dead man or woman. You are dead to the world and dead to self. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Before Christ can nurture a loving relationship with us and use us in His Kingdom this must be crucified first. It is the most painful experience of your life but on the other side of it you will praise Jehovah for allowing it to happen to you and for the Holy Spirit for walking through it with you every day.

“Above all the grace and gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self.” — Francis of Assisi

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me that You totally annihilated my selfish self centeredness and You cultivated in me a heart that places You where You belong, above all others. I exalt You in the name of He who is my shining example of Divine love unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Are the Light.

gods-story-for-you

  “You are the light of [Christ to] the world. Matthew 5: 14 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This can be looked at as awesome ( awesome means to be in awe of and awe means an emotion variously combining dread, and wonder that is inspired by authority ) as young folk like to throw around today with out knowing what it means. It is also a very weighty matter.

Think of it, we are Christs ambassadors to the world.

When others look at you what kind of Jesus do you think they see?

For me, I am ashamed of they type of Jesus I present to the world at times. That is why it is of paramount importance to always pray every day for the blessing of the Holy Spirit to guide us and help us be the type of ambassadors that would nurture a deep desire for others to immigrate into Christs kingdom and leave their dark world behind. That is truly a task too monumental for us to accomplish on our own.

If we are to be the light of the world we need the fire of the Holy Spirit within us. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your Divine light which shines brilliantly in this dark world so that I may have the honour of guiding those in the dark world unto Your Heavenly light. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Your Personal Offering.

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

 Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a tree planter we would get paid by the tree. The more trees you planted the more money you made. Therefore, it was in our best interest to plant as many trees as possible. Most of the planters planted sloppy without care for their quality. I, however always took quality before quantity. At some time during the day I would rest under a tree in the nearby forest and survey the ground just planted. The thought came to me that because those trees were planted with superior quality most would survive. Because most would survive they would provide food, shelter, nests for young to be nurtured, take pollution out of the air and give us clean air in return, prevent soil erosion, help retain watersheds which supplied the rivers and streams the fish dwelled in. It always made me smile and think of nature as Gods Cathedral and I just completed a wonderful renovation on it. I got a reputation as having one of the best quality in the country. Whenever someone would ask me why quality was chosen over quantity it would be explained to them about caring for Gods Cathedral and if you are going to do it, do it right.

Children, no matter how much the world pressures you to cut corners to save the company money or get the assignment do quicker, always put your best effort in your work. It will be noticed and it will cause others to question why? That is a golden opportunity to share Christ.

If you are going to do it then  do it as you were doing it for Royalty. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) I humbly beseech You that You are always with me guiding my hands and mouth that they may excel in whatever You guide me to do so that it may bring honour unto You. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always excelled in His work for Your glory Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Will Rebuke the Devourer.

cannot-outrun

Bring all the tithes (the tenth) into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you [so great] a blessing until there is no more room to receive it. Then I will rebuke the devourer (insects, plague) for your sake and he will not destroy the fruits of the ground, nor will your vine in the field drop its grapes [before harvest],” says the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:10-11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Rebuke means to criticize (someone) so as to correct a fault. The fault in this case being our selfishness.

In the ancient world the people were mostly farmers and would starve because of flood , drought , insects and plant disease devourer their crops. In todays world the devourer is materialism , and vanity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We do not need to give one tenth of our wages unto the Lord if we cannot afford it but we can give of our time instead. There are numerous opportunities available to us such as visiting seniors either those that are living alone or those in a retirement home. We can offer to help worthy groups such as Habitat for Humanity.

I do not believe doing something like walking for cancer sufficient , after all , that is just a one day event. Our offerings should be weekly.

Jehovah is more pleased with your weekly giving from your heart , not your wallet. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with countless occasions to serve You through service to the local community. I anticipate the wonderful privileges You will offer in the future to serve You. I adore You in the name of He who served as a living sacrifice unto me for the blessing to be a member of Your Holy family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

One Goes With the Other.

chief-duty

 And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. 2 Corinthians 9:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah gives us so that we are to give to others. If you do not share then why should He share with you?

Jehovah will not provide you with abundance of earthly delights like a home you cannot afford or a new car with all the toys you do not need or expensive clothing you do not need but and abundance of spiritual blessings to complete the task He has intended for you in His divine plan.

“I exhort you, press on in your course, and exhort all men that they may be saved.” — Polycarp

The earthly blessings will be a time and place to accomplish His plan through you. It will also include the materials you need , like maybe a computer.

The only way to accomplish this task is with Divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness which can only be received through you dependence upon Him. He will abundantly supply these things.

I have done more for the Lord through the simple things that Jehovah lavishly provides for me than through the gadgets the world offers. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with Your daily providence to accomplish the tasks You have predestined for me to do for Your glory , Your kingdom and those who need assistance. I extol You in the name of He who provided for the four thousand Jesus Christ . Amen

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