Who are You Walking With?

true-friendship

 He who walks [as a companion] with wise men will be wise,
But the companions of [conceited, dull-witted] fools [are fools themselves and] will experience harm.
Proverbs 13:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I find it quite humorous every time I see folks destroying their bodies with tattoos, body piercing and weird hair colouring just to look original when alls they are really doing is following the trends of the “ beautiful people “

This is not a new fade but has been going on for eons. I have seen many of them come and go in the decades I have been walking this planet and am always amazed at their foolishness. Sometimes when I meet someone I knew from a few decades back we always laugh at the silliness of it.

Children , the next time you are at grandma and grandpa’s house ask them to show you photo’s of your mom and dad when they were your age.

What is pitiful is seeing the older generation attempting to look young by keeping up with these silly fads.

The same thing can be said about the many disastrous choices we have all made because we were impressed by a Dapper Dan.

The wise learn from these ruinous experiences and seek out those who are wise and befriend them even though their lifestyle is not considered “ cool “ to those in the world.

The foolish persist in repeating the same ruinous pattern and choosing the same arrogant pretentious companions .

Choose your friends carefully because as they are so too will you become. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend ) for blessing me with wisdom to steer away from the destructive friends and towards Godly friends that we can share communion together as well as enjoy communion with You. I exhalt You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ . Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass 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.

In Old Age.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

 [Growing in grace] they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age . Psalm 92:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Bible

Just because you are old does not diminish your usefulness in service unto Jehovah.

There are many organizations like Habitat for Humanity that would gladly appreciate your skills. Even if you have no experience they still need helping hands. I worked with them for the first time recently and the old fellas taught me a great deal and the fellowship was great.

Perhaps you have been a housewife, well I am sure there are community programs where they need you to teach cooking (the old home made meals are still the best).

If you have a vehicle there are many elderly folks that need a ride for doctors appointments and to take the shopping. There are hiking trails that need volunteers for maintenance of the trails.

There are literacy programs that need volunteers to teach others to read.

You can go and help out at seniors homes, being a volunteer there believe me I see a lot of lonely folks that would love to have someone come in for a visit.

The whole time you can share with others your walk with Christ. Personal testimony is still the best evangelical tool available.

Carpe diem (Seize the day)

Plant your seed of kindness and love today so that you will be blessed with an abundant harvest tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Not only will you be helping your community but ,by Gods grace, you will be guiding others into Jehovahs beautiful family.

There are so many lost, confused and lonely out there that need your help. Another blessing is that what goes around, comes around. When the time comes when you need help ( and we all do occasionally) you will have a support network there to help you as you have helped others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for walking with me through out my life and teaching me so many amazing things. Thank you for walking with me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Please bless me with opportunities to pass this Divine wisdom on to others who need guidance and support. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of He who is my constant support and guide through life, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do not fall for the masquerade.

NO DOMINION

And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 New International Version

This is why it is important to read our Bible, spend time in prayer and spend time fellow shipping with other believers.

Satan will come to us as many masquerades. He may come to you as one of these deceivers who preach the gospel of prosperity. Give your life to Jesus and He will give you everything you desire.

Nothing is further from the truth.

A Christian life is a life of sacrifice and one that concentrates more upon receiving spiritual wealth in Christ that in material gains.

He may come to you in the form of someone who is controlling and informs you, you have committed an unforgivable sin and the only way out is to follow their cult. When we repent with a sincere heart we are forgiven, not by what someone says but by the blood of Jesus.

That is why we need our daily nourishment of Bible reading to gain knowledge and fellowship with both other brothers and sisters and daily communion with Jehovah God. By doing this we will be aware of the wicked ones masquerade and be able to defend ourselves from the attacks and to protect other innocent victims that the wicked one is preying upon.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with wisdom to defend myself from the wicked ones destructive schemes and with the power to defeat Him. Thank you for blessing me with Your Divine protection when I am weak and gullible. I extol You in the name of He whose death and resurrection defeated the wicked one for eternity Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It Is Normal to Christians

holy-spirit

 Some Christians believe that miracles do not occur today through Christians.

I disagree and here is why: Jesus Himself promised that we could and would do miracles when we have strong faith. I do not see where he specifically says it will end with the disciples. Indeed does the Bible not state that old men would have dreams as a sign of the end of times? Matthew 10:1, Mark 16:16-18, 2 John 14:12 The purpose of the miracles is to confirm the pastors calling. Exodus 4:3-9, 30:7:10, 12 Numbers 16:28-35 I Samuel 12:17, 18 I Kings 17:24 Mark 9:39; 16:17-18 John 3:2:6:14, 36; 11:42 Acts 2:22 2 Corinthians 12:12

I had one experience in Asia where I was witnessing to a woman. She kept on laughing and questioning what made me so sure there was a God and that he had arranged for us to meet and share a Bible study. One day she informed me she had a friend whose husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I informed her I would pray for him. After the third day the doctors examined him only to discover that there was no cancer even though he was not taking any medication. She was ecstatic when she emailed me so that is why I know it is true.

That the message is from God Exodus 4:3-9, 30; 7:10, 12 Judges 6:11-21 I Kings 17:24; 18:37-39 2 Kings 20:8-11 Matthew 11:2-5 Mark 16:2 John 5:36 Acts 2:22; 8:6
Hebrews 2:3-4

That the miracles increase faith. John 2:11, 23; 5:53:7:31; 11:45;20:30-31 Numbers 14:11 Acts 9:42

There was an Asian man who I was witnessing to that was a new believer. One day he shared with me that being middle aged he was afraid of losing his job because the company he was working for was going bankrupt and he would be unable to get another job. After three days of my praying a company called him to offer him a job where he did not have to travel (he was a salesman who was always travelling about the country),had good benefits and more wages. Considering there are millions of younger unemployed men and women in his field with the latest skills and he was nearing retirement age wouldnt you consider that a miracle?

No matter who is the vessel God uses to bring about a miracle or healing,it is God Who is to get the glory for it.

Chronicles 7:3 Matthew _:8; 15:31 Mark 2:12 Luke 5:25-26; 7:15-16:13 13; 17:15-16; 18:43 Acts 4:21; 14:11-15 John 2:11; 11:4

This is a hard one for me. I have had people repeatedly praise me for the wonderful things that occur to them when associating with me. I always inform them to give praise to Jehovah, not to me. I feel very uncomfortable with it.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me to be alert to those with whom You have given signs and wonders to to point us to You. Please bless me to humbly and wisely use these awesome tools You have given me the responsibility to use to point others to You. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who used them in a wise manner Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Love to Watch Their Reaction.

God loves each of

 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God Romans 8:16 New King James Version Bible

Sometimes during a conversation I like to slip in that I am a son of God.

The look of shock and indignation on their faces is hilarious. I love to watch their reaction (especially amongst Christians). Every time they mistakenly believe that I am calling myself Jesus Christ. Then I recite this verse and even then many still do not believe that I am a son of God.

It does not mean we are equal to Christ but are part of His divine family. Even then many believe I am crazy and should either be locked up or stoned.

Why is it that so many “Christians call themselves “Christians” but do not believe they are an eternal member of a Holy family(if they are Christians in thought word and deed and not name only)?

That does not permit us license to lord it over others but instead to humbly, meekly and graciously share with them the our experiences of Divine love, joy, peace and purpose in a way that they will desire to join this exclusive family.

It also gets the Sunday Christians thinking about their place in the Heavenly family. How are you doing with your conversations about the benefits of being a member of this exclusive family?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father)for the most treasured blessing in my life,your graciousness in adopting me into Your Holy family and for the opportunities of sharing this amazing love affair with others so that they may develop a deep desire to know You and be adopted in this same Holy family. I exalt You in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do not play the blame game.

repent

 

Then he sent his brothers away, and as they were leaving he said to them, “Don’t quarrel on the way!” Genesis 45:24 New International Version

Joseph knew his brothers would be quarreling over who was responsible for him being mistreated when his father found out that he was alive and was going to meet him in Egypt.

Don’t we all do the same thing with the “not my fault, your fault” syndrome?

Is it not better to be mature and take responsibility for our wrongs and try to correct them? I know personally of some relationships that were destroyed that were once close because of this very action.

Are you experiencing trouble in a relationship with your spouse, children, parents, friends or co-workers?

Could it be that it is because you are being immature and irresponsible in not apologizing?

Sometimes these problems can only be solved by a good Christian councilor. I say Christian because their wisdom will come from the Bible which is the best guidance book of them all.

Why not try some Christian resource like Focus on the Family and see if they can suggest a councilor in your area?

If the other one or ones involved in this refuse to attend then go yourself.

That is exactly what happened to me and now I have peace while they are still warring within themselves and amongst themselves.

A wise man seeks wise council Proverbs 1:5 New International Version Prayer:

Please Jehovah Elohim (God our eternal creator) bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to resolve the problem of _________________ (write in what the problem is) my relationship with _____________ (write in the name of those involved with the problem). If necessary please guide us to Christ centered councilors to help resolve this dispute. I honestly request this in the name of the greatest councilor of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

WARNING: Do not pray this unless you are sincere because if you are not sincere and pray this and Jehovah brings you the guidance you need and you reject it you will be held accountable for your refusal on the terrible Day of Judgment.

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