Not Need Thee.

the-lord-is-my-strength

 Therefore let the one who thinks he stands firm [immune to temptation, being overconfident and self-righteous], take care that he does not fall [into sin and condemnation].1 Corinthians 10:12 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I know a man that when he first gave up drinking he was arrogant and self confident. He and his wife believed this was accomplished upon their own effort and bragged about it every day for three months. Then we did not see him nor his wife for four months. They hung their heads in shame as they confessed they fell off the wagon. They drank away all their savings, lost their house their boat and car as well as their business.

“O God, never suffer us to think that we can stand by ourselves, and not need Thee.” — John Donne

One time when doing volunteer work in a hospital I was escorting an alcoholic to the detox. He said something I that has haunted me ever since:” Be careful because we are all one step from the gutter. “

When we walk away from Jehovah we walk towards certain disaster. “ Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for always walking with me day by day. I so absolutely require Your wisdom, guidance, provision and protection every day in every way. I gratefully thank You in the name of he who walks amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He is Your Best Stress Buster

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7 New International Version

Think of Christ as your best friend. You can unload all your problems upon Him. He is the wisest and knows how best to handle your problem. You can take all your worries, pains and frustrations to Him. He loves you and He cares.

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

JESUS' LOVE

Now we must have faith and be patient.

Jesus works in His time, not ours.

Speaking from personal experience it took fourteen years of agonizing prayer and faith before Christ delivered me from my addiction to alcohol.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom  (God of our peace) for the warm rays of peace that envelope me whenever the dark clouds of stress begin to encompass me and I call upon Your peaceful serene love to evaporate them. I joyously praise You for this wonderful blessing in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Given Me Life.

 

REST IN THE LORD

This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life. Psalms 119:50 New King James Version

                                                                                                          

Remember that phrase from a popular movie :”Where ya gonna go?”  

                                                               

Well, where do you go when your heart is pierced like a knife?                                                                     

The only logical answer is the Bible.                                                                                                                     

The Christian has peace because he knows he is loved and cared for the by the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christs sacrifice by the grace of Jehovah . Joseph- Anthony: Green

Read of those whose hearts where pierced by sadness and grief and see how Jehovah gently healed them.                                                                                                                                                                                   

Do you have no job and your money is running out? Turn to your Bible and read about those that suffered the same fate and see how Jehovah delivered them. Now do not expect something like the widow and the oil like with Elijah but take comfort and have reassurance that Jehovah will deliver you.                                                                                                                                                                             

Are you suffering from some incurable disease and are slowly ebbing into your final days and are afraid of what death is like? Read your Bible and see how many of the patriarchs faced their final days.                                                                                                                                                                     

Are you facing a death in your family, read your Bible and take comfort and strength in how they handled the situation?                                                                                                                                           

Any and all tragic events in our life has been recorded in the Bible  in the lives of others to comfort and strengthen us.  Pray for Jehovah to guide you to the proper place in the Bible and to open your hearts and minds to what is occurring and how it relates to your present circumstance.

                                                                 

I do not need psychiatrists; I need the Bible to solve my problems. Joseph- Anthony: Green

And, if you read your Bible you will see that Jesus has experienced everything we have and so much more. So of course when we come to Him He understands. He has been there, done that.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam  (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your awesome strength that has carried me through so many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Thank you for Your Devine Book of wisdom to encourage and strengthen us, the Holy Bible through the valleys in our lives. I exalt You in the name of He who taught this to any and all who were willing to listen and obey Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There are Six Killers

POVERTY

There are six killers that destroy society today.

“But if you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and do not obey all the commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come and overwhelm you:Your towns and your fields will be cursed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be cursed.
Your children and your crops will be cursed. The offspring of your herds and flocks
will be cursed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be cursed. “The Lord himself will send on you curses, confusion, and frustration in everything you do, until at last you are completely destroyed for doing evil and abandoning me. The Lord will afflict you with diseases until none of you are left in the land you are about to enter and occupy. The Lord will strike you with wasting diseases, fever, and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, and with blight and mildew. These disasters will pursue you until you die. Deuteronomy 28:15-22 New International Version

There are six killers that destroy society today.

One: Electronic entertainment.

Now I am not saying there is anything wrong with TV, the internet or mobile phones.

What is wrong is that people spend too much time in front of the idiot box, on the internet and texting each other instead of personal contact with each other.

Instead of spending time doing things together as a family, most people are zombies with their electronics.

Have you ever seen people sitting at a table with each other and spending time texting instead of talking with each other.

I always inform people that if they want to spend time with me, they must turn off their mobiles first.

Religion.

It is not important whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Muslims, or Buddhism they all have the same core values. People need that in order to have the proper values in their lives.

Family.

How many people are spending so much time working that they are neglecting their marriages and children?

Who is better to raise your children: a mother and father or the internet or TV or texting? Instead of sitting around the supper table and talking about each others day, how many families are zoned out watching the idiot box?

I was at an acquaintances house for dinner one time. Everyone was glued to watching a rerun that they knew what it was about after the first scene. When I tried to start a conversation I was hushed.

As well how many people spend one day a week doing thing together as a family? How many people are strangers living in the same house?

Political correctness

There is no absolute right or wrong in society.

Everybody wins a prize. There is no failure permitted.

Consequently there are educated idiots graduating from schools today that are lucky if they know how to tie their shoes.

How many of the great people first suffered failure before they experience success?

Read about Thomas Edison and see how many times he failed before he invented the light bulb.

We need to understand that just as in the past when everybody did as they pleased it lead to the destruction of their society and ultimately to their country.

Look what happened in France in the seventeen hundreds as an example.

Commercialism.

Everywhere we go whether it is on the idiot box, on the mobile, on the bus, on the internet we are bombarded with buy, buy, buy.

How many countries are in debt up to their eyeballs and the people suffer because of greed?

How many people are maxed out on their credit cards because they foolishly though buying the newest toy would bring them happiness and are now slaves paying off their debt?

And of course the number one reason for the doom of any society is when they turn their backs on God.

How can you expect Gods blessings if you do not have an loving obedient relationship with Him?

Prayer: Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) please turn the hearts of the people back to You in order to prevent the doom and destruction of their personal lives, their family lives and their society lives. I humble request this in the name of the King of the most exhaled society, Heaven, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

Until An Opportune Time.

SATANS TRAP

Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:13 New King James Version

 

This is something for every addict to remember.

Do not believe for a second that if you have recovered from an addiction like alcoholism that temptation will never rear its ugly head again.

The devil will wait until an opportune time to strike you so as to defeat you.

 

That is why it is important to have Christian mentors and support at all times.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

 

That is why it is important to memorize Scripture Verses to throw at him when He tempts you.

 

That is why it is important for you to maintain a constant relationship with Christ so the Holy Spirit will be there to help you overcome the temptation when it comes (and it will).

Christians who try to stand alone are doomed to fall. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

I have used this method very successfully for many years with overcoming alcoholism.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for blessing me with the Divine protection You abundantly provide through Your Word, Your Spirit Helper and the mentors You so graciously provide to rescue me from the wicked ones wiles. I praise You in the name of the mighty warrior king who victoriously defeated him on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

War Against the Soul.

SINFUL DESIRE

Abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. 1 Peter 2:11 New King James Version

                                                                                                    

If you are older like me you have witnessed the spiraling descension of our western society into a cesspool. In our  music, TV shows and movies morality has taken back seat to the shock effect to addict people to the filth. Look at many of todays singers when they were just starting out and portrayed as sweet and innocent. As that became passé they became more and more depraved to stay on top. 

                                                                        

Society thinks it is cool to emulate them.                                                          

Look at the movies and listen to popular songs. There is so much filth in it that laughingly is called entertainment.                                                            

It encourages premarital sex, why do they not have interviews with people who have contracted syphilis (we have a run for aids why not a run for syphilis which is much more common and much more deadly?) or had abortions and their lives ruined because of this lifestyle? 

                                                                         

Seeking after self instead of seeking to better society. Why do they not talk about how many suicides there are because of loneliness?               

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                        

Materialism which says buy this and you will be happy.                                 

Why do they not have interviews with folks that have had their lives and marriages destroyed by bankruptcy?                                                                     

Indeed is not every society in the world today facing eminent bankruptcy on a scale never witnessed before in history because of this empty “happiness”?                                                                                          

Is not every government in the world facing bankruptcy because their populace lives by the entitlement theory and to stay in power the politicians give the people what they want and not what they need?                                                                      

“We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves to be like other people.”  Arthur Schopenhauer   

                                                                                                         

On the other hand when you seek after Christ you are in the spiritual world. In this world you experience His love and divine joy which nothing of the flesh can even begin to compare with.      

                                  

I would not give up one moment of my Christian life for a lifetime of fleshly desires being fulfilled. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (god is love) for blessing me with the most treasured gift ever possible, Your divine love. I praise You in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.                                              

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