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.

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.

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.

He Has Never Lost a Case.

no-conviction

 My little children (believers, dear ones), I am writing you these things so that you will not sin and violate God’s law. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate [who will intercede for us] with the Father: Jesus Christ the righteous [the upright, the just One, who conforms to the Father’s will in every way—purpose, thought, and action]. 1 John 2:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In todays terms Jesus would best be described in this verse as our defence lawyer. Every day we commit numerous crimes against Jehovah. Each and every one of them condemns us to eternal damnation in Hell. Thankfully when we confess with a repentant heart (repent means to admit what you did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it and stop doing it ) by the blood of our Heavenly sacrificial Lamb ( Jesus Christ ) we are forgiven. He represents us as our defence lawyer. He has never lost a case.

This does not give us contre blanche to sin and believe we can con Jesus by saying sorry and deliberately returning to the filthy sin we committed .

A sincere contrite heart Christ is quick to forgive. An arrogant heart that foolishly falsely confesses their sin with out true repentance Christ is quick to condemn. Joseph- Anthony; Green.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defence) that Thy Holy blood is the only defense that acquits me in Jehovahs supreme court. I extol Thee in Thy most Holy name. 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.
