How to Get a Fantastic Education.

Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: If you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 24:14 New International Version

It is very common in Asia for mothers to beat (yes physically beat look up tiger mothers) their children and constantly nag them to get a good education (so the children can get a good job, so the children can support their mamma so she can live luxuriously, sounds kind of greedy to me) from the time they are very young (it is common for mothers and grandmothers to want English teachers to teach their children university English when they are young as four years old).

It is constantly drilled into them to get the best education so they can get the highest paid job.

When the children graduate most of them cannot find work.

Either that or they do find work and work like slaves.

The children are then very angry and bitter. Many think “Is this what I spent twenty years of my life for? I was robbed of a nice childhood. I had no time to play or make friends.”

What happens if you can’t get a job or get laid off because of down sizing?

Do you know the difference between knowledge and wisdom?

Knowledge is knowing something; wisdom is putting knowledge to work.

For example : You may go to school to learn how to cook, but if you do not put that knowledge into practice and instead of cooking healthy delicious meals you cook macaroni and beans what good is your knowledge?

Honey not only tastes good it is also very healthy for you and makes you strong. When you have the best wisdom you gain the promise of the best future. Let wisdom be like honey to your mind. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Where may you find this knowledge?

In your Bible of course.

There you will find how to have a relationship with God, how to have proper relationships, how to handle money and of course, how to know your calling in Gods family (once we are saved. God gives each of us a specific duty to do in His family). This of course leads to the ultimate future: a future in Heaven with our beloved Jesus.

The Holy Bible is the answer Bible to all of our problems. We are wise to listen and obey its instructions. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit our Teacher) for the blessing of giving me wisdom found in Your sacred word, the Bible. I give joyous thanks in the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

Use it Carefully.



Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. Proverbs 13:24 New International Version

Do you notice the word “carefully” in this sentence?

Yes children need discipline but there is a difference between discipline and abuse. To beat or nag them or belittle them in public a child is abuse. To spank a child is discipline.

My mother used to spank us and send us to our room to think about what we had done, why it was wrong and to think of a good apology when we misbehaved. That method of reasoning has been carried throughout my life. In thinking about what I have done, why it is wrong and the correct way to make an apology.

Children need discipline or else how will they know right from wrong when they become adults?

Isn’t that the fundamental reason there are so many problems in society today?

Don’t you hate it when you see a screaming child in the supermarket because they can’t get what they want? A good swat soon stops that. How about when travelling long distance on a plane or bus. The parent tries to reason with the misbehaving child. The child laughs because they know there is no punishment and just keeps on misbehaving. Isn’t that annoying to everybody else on board?

My cousin tried that stunt with my grandma in a supermarket only once and he got a good swat for his efforts. He never tried that again with her.

Now of course when they become older like teenagers a different method is used such as taking away privileges.

As Christian we are emulate the greatest Teacher, Jesus Christ, for the best results. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah


Prayer: Jehovah Abba, please teach me to be a good parent like you. Teach me when and how to use the rod in order to raise Godly children which is a gift from you.
I humbly ask in the name of our big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

There are Two Ways Of



Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-31 New International Version

Remember the old pirate movies where they look through a spyglass.

Is that not the way many people look at conflicts?

Through one lens and that lens is their own opinion. They refuse to listen to anybody else. They speak, you listen. You speak, they don’t listen. It is called selective hearing and is the major problem in conflicts whether it is between parents and children (it is just as important for parents to listen to children as it is for children to listen to parents by the way), husbands and wives, or neighbors.

Instead it is important to look though binoculars to see the big picture.

We need to sit down with pen and paper and listen to what the other person has to say and write it down. While person A is speaking person B listens without interrupting and is writing down what is said. This is then repeated with person B speaking and person A listening.

Next try to look at how and why the other person feels the way they do.

If you cannot solve the problem between yourselves it is important to get someone who does not take sides and you both trust to mediate between you. You both agree to the mediator’s decision and act upon it. It is one thing to agree to it, it is just as important to act on it.

I have met many people that it was like talking to a wall. They pretended not to hear what I was saying because they didn’t care.

What I have learned is to inform them when they are just as willing to listen as they are to talk, we can continue. Then walk away. I do not give in to them no matter how much they pout like little babies, threaten and whine. Many times that means distancing myself from them. It has cost me many friendships but I am better off without them because they were very self centered and greedy.

Now of course it is different if you are married or it is parents and children living in the same place.

When I was a teacher and a student was naughty I did not scream and yell at them. I would sit them down and talk with them. They knew what they did was wrong. Just be patient with them. Once they admit what they did was wrong then we talk about how they can make it right. After that is settled we work on them making it right. If they were naughty to another student they would apologize to them in class. When they would have a difficult time doing this, teacher was right there softly encouraging them, informing them it was the right thing to do and I know you can do it. Then I would encourage the hurt child to forgive. Teacher would then give them big huggies and inform them he is proud of them. They love and respect teachers like that. I will tell you, the children in my classes were very well behaved. That is why I always got the worst classes. But, in two months there was a complete change.

So too is it necessary for us to do this with each other.

The Holy Spirit is the best mediator. He will show you how to heal a relationship and when to walk away. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (The Lord our provider) please provide me to have both eyes open to how to heal any broken relationship in my life. I ask in the name of He who has taught me to have eyes to see Jesus Christ. Amen.

That Pleases God

The kind of worship that pleases God will be Christ-centered and Spirit-led. To try to worship without faith in Christ is folly; to try to worship without the power of the Holy Spirit is hollow. Allen P. Ross

A Good Clear Conscience

One of the greatest blessings for the born again Christian is the deep sense of peace with God (Phil. 4:79Col. 3:15John 14:27).

The apostle Paul wrote, “I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience bearing joint-testimony with me in the Holy Spirit . . .” (Romans 9:1).

Paul takes a triple oath here because of deep convictions regarding the salvation of the Jewish people. He makes a strong, positive affirmation in Christ, a negative statement that he is not lying, and the appeal to his conscience as a co-witness “in the Holy Spirit.” Paul looked to Christ and rejoiced; he looked at the Jewish people lost in sin and wept. Paul was willing to go to hell for the sake of his lost Jewish friends.

The conscience is that faculty of man that evaluates our actions, along with our thoughts that either accuse or excuse us of sin. Our conscience is an important part of human nature the world over. It is not an absolutely trustworthy indicator of what is right and wrong. We can have a “good” conscience (Acts 23:1); 1 Tim. 1:519), a “clear” conscience (Acts 24:161 Tim. 3:92 Tim. 1:3Heb. 13:18), or a “guilty” conscience (Heb. 10:22), a “corrupted” conscience (Titus 1:15), a “weak” conscience (1 Cor. 8:71012), or a “seared” conscience (1 Tim. 4:2).

The marvelous thing about the gospel is that “the blood of Christ” cleanses the conscience. The writer of Hebrews says, “How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Heb.  9:14).

The conscience is the remains of God’s image in man after the fall of Adam. The universal fact of this inner voice is important. It is a divine law. Because we are sinners obedience to the voice of conscience must always be tested with an acceptance of the revealed will of God in the Scriptures (John 8:7-9Rom. 2:15-169:1Titus 1:13-15).

The apostle Paul warned, “Nothing is wholesome to those who are themselves unwholesome and who have no faith in God—their very minds and consciences are diseased” (Tit. 1:15, Phillips). The conscience is defiled because the light from both it and the Holy Spirit are refused.

The conscience in the born again believer is restored to its high position as the Christian studies and meditates on God’s revealed will in the Bible. For the mature Christian the witness of the conscience will be met by the witness of the Holy Spirit as to what pleases God (Rom. 9:1). We should seek to continually have “a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men” (Acts 24:16).

May the Holy Spirit cleanse the deepest recesses of our hearts by the infinite purification that God alone can accomplish by means of the blood of Jesus Christ. May He make us sensitive to the slightest whisper of His Holy Spirit. His Spirit gives us a sense of disquiet when we are tempted. He makes us hate anything that will separate us from abiding fellowship with God.

To maintain a good, clear conscience that is sensitive to the Spirit of God we must confess every sin that we are conscious of and walk in the light of God’s Word. The Holy Spirit always uses God’s Word to reveal sin to us. When the conscience reproves listen to it, and confess the sin to God, claim His forgiveness based on the atoning death of Christ. The blood of Jesus cleanses us of all sin. Pray that the witness of your conscience and the witness of the Holy Spirit and the abiding presence of being “in Christ” becomes one. Hold “to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience” (1 Tim. 3:9).

He Will Send Us

The Lord is my rock, my protection, my Savior. My God is my rock. I can run to him for safety. He is my shield and my saving strength, my defender. Psalms 18:2 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

When we walk close with Christ He will send us The Holy Spirit to guide and protect us.

Do you need strength? Peace? Wisdom? Direction? Discipline? Ask for it! God will hear you and send you His helper, The Holy Spirit Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

There have been so many times The Holy Spirit has guided me away form disasters and from con men and women.

There has been so many times I thought my way was the better way and argued with The Holy Spirit because I thought He was wrong. Against my mind saying ignore His advice I obeyed and boy was I ever glad I did.

When we walk in obedience with The Holy Spirit , He will shield us from the arrows that the wicked fire at us ( words said to upset us because they think it is funny ) and many times He will guide us with words that pierce the wicked like a flaming arrow or words that convict them and it is like burning coals upon their perverted minds. They become insane and start yelling and screaming like someone who is insane.

There are so many times we are exhausted, confused and afraid.

The Holy Spirit blesses us with strength, and confidence to continue on to victory ( I find it is when we are the closest to victory that satan comes at us the hardest to cause us to fail ).

There has been so many times when it seems as if there are more of them than me and they have more power than me. Then, events happen that destroys them that cannot be explained. That is the hand of The Holy Spirit defending us ( boy have I ever experienced a lot of those ).

Obey The Holy Spirit even when it does not make sense. You will always be glad you did. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for blessing me with providing me with The Holy Spirit to guide me, comfort me, encourage me and strengthen me. He is the best. I praise You in the name of He whose precious blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen
