Man Forgets His Purpose

with-all-your-heart

 He made Christ who knew no sin to [ judicially ] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [ that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious loving kindness]. 2 Corinthians 5:21 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There is only one supreme relationship we need to be fully concerned with.

It is not your family, your wife, your friends or your associates.

It is the relationship you have with Jehovah. When we are blessed with Holy Communion with him we need never ask why we are here. We know we are here to be blessed with the supreme love affair and that is with Jehovah. We need never ask what is the meaning of life because we know it is to be in an obedient, loving relationship with our Heavenly Father.

“Man, made in the image of God, has a purpose – to be in relationship to God, who is there. Man forgets his purpose and thus he forgets who he is and what life means.” — Francis Schaeffer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah- M’Kaddesh ( The Lord is my Sanctifier ) for setting me apart from the world to be blessed with an awesome love affair with You. Thank you that because of this cherished gift I know the meaning of life and my purpose in it. I exalt You in the name of my precious King Jesus Christ who has given my life meaning and purpose. Amen

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

Wisdom is Having.

listen-to-our-wise-elders

Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I love to learn and am always willing to watch, listen, learn and be thankful towards my mentors. As a result there have been many disasters averted in my life.

A wise man listens, learns and obeys . Joseph- Anthony: Green

As for being self disciplined that requires the blessing of the Holy Spirit. We are all weak from time to time and need His infinite strength to get us through some trial and temptations. This as well has helped me avert many disasters in my life.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Knowledge comes from experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have seen far too many idiots continue upon the same road to disaster. No it is not repeating the same mistake.

The first time it is a mistake, after that it is just pain stupid and stubborn. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have seen way too many needlessly suffer because of this.

When I was treeplanting I would take the rookies and teach them the proper way to plant ( there was a lot more to it than just slamming a tree into the ground ) at the geginnig of the season.. I was not paid to do this but did it because of the graciousness in my heart. As they honed their skills they began to plant more trees. We were paid by how many trees we planted so they began to make a lot more money. Then there were always the: “ I know, I knows.’ ). These are the ones that when I offered to teach them to plant they would always say I know what I am doing, I know. As a result they would work twice as hard as the ones that listened to me and make one third the amount of money.

Stupidness and stubbornness go hand in hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

There is a price to pay for stupidity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for all of Your patience and wisdom you have blessed me with through my walk with You. It has been a true God send in my life. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Come close to God.

PREDESTINATION

 Come close to God [with a contrite heart] and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; and purify your [unfaithful] hearts, you double-minded [people]. James 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Contrite means you feel bad about your sins and desire to repent of them and double minded means you think this way but behave in the exact opposite way.

Have you ever met someone who says they will do this and then they do that. It is not a one off experience but a habitual one.

For example you make an appointment with them for nine o clock in the morning and they do not show up until eleven or one in the afternoon. They do not call to say they will be late and when they arrive they do not apologize but make some stupid excuse. It infuriated me. Now I just tell folks to be there on time because I am not waiting. If it is important enough for them then they will be there on time.

Mutual respect is an intricate part of a loving relationship. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same thing is true with Jehovah.

We must be respectful towards Him if we desire a loving relationship with Him.

If He convicts you of a sin in your life and you admit it but intentionally continue in your sin that will make Him angry and yes He will walk away from you. He will not accept lame excuses nor tolerate insolence.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with a Heavenly friendship with You. Please bless me with always being respectful towards You in all I say and do. I humbly give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Better Rice and Beans than Steak.

true-friendship

 Better is a dinner of vegetables and herbs where love is present Than a fattened ox served with hatred. Proverbs 15:17 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

I believe a modern way of saying this is better a poor mans meal of rice and beans where there is love thank steak where there is a lot of hate, jealousy and phony friends.

I know it to be true.

I have had fancy meals where the folks sitting at the meal could not even look each other in the face they hated each other so much ( and that was with family ) . Believe me , it was no an enjoyable meal. It was surprising they could even digest their meal . I wanted to bolt for the door.

A meal shared with hate is the worse meal to ever been eaten. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have shared a meal with extremely poor souls that were giving me a portion of their food and it was just rice and beans. I felt like royalty. The love just permeated the atmosphere and I did not want the meal to end.

A meal shared with love is the best meal ever. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the numerous times You have blessed me with communion with You and with those whose hearts overflow with love. I appreciate this in the name of my most cherished Beloved Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A FEW TRURSTED FRIENDS

Thy Choicest Companions But there is a [true, loving] friend who [is reliable and] sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We have all had the good times friends. You know the type, they are there when the times are good but when you need their help, you are a stranger to them. Indeed, many times they will step back and either tisk tisk you (it is your own fault you are experiencing the difficulties) or they are laughing at you. We have all had the backstabbing friends, they are nice to your face but gossip about you when you are not around. We have all had the friends of convenience. They are your friend as long as they can get what they want from you and when they do not need you anymore, you are a stranger to them.

“I would rather have one true friend than many friends of convenience or good time friends.” Joseph- Anthony: Green

We have also all had the true friends. The ones you can depend upon to always be there for you. They are the ones we can confide in. They are more valuable than gold.

Let those be thy choicest companions who have made Christ their chief companion.” Thomas Brooks

Of course as all Christian know, we have the best friend we could ever ask for when we are blessed with Jesus Christ’s most awesome friendship.

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

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with the most awesome friendship with You and thank you for guiding me unto those of the same loving heart to enjoy fellowship with. I exalt You in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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