All Things for and Through God

All Things for and Through God

 Old Bishop John Ryle said truthfully: “It is not open sin, or open unbelief, which robs Christ of His professing servants, so much as the love of the world, the fear of the world, the cares of the world, the business of the world, the money of the world, the pleasures of the world, and the desire to keep in touch with the world. This is the great rock on which thousands of young people are continually making shipwreck. They do not object to any article of the Christian faith. They do not deliberately choose evil and openly rebel against God. They hope somehow to get to heaven at last, and they think it proper to have some religion. But they cannot give up their idol: they must have the world. And so after running well and bidding fair for heaven while boys and girls, they turn aside when they become men and women and go down the broad way which leads to destruction. They begin with Abraham and Moses and end with Demas and Lot’s wife.”

What a contrast with the life of Christ who lived to please the Father alone. Man was created to bring “glory, honor and power” to the LORD God. “The chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.” Hebrews 2:10 reads, “For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings.” God created you and me for the purpose of showing forth His glory. God is the cause of every object in nature and its only reason for existence is that the grace and power of God may be seen through it. Everything finds its reason and justification in its relationship to Him. He is the final and efficient Cause of all things. It is for His sake that the whole universe exists. All things in the universe exists for God’s glory.

Instead of all things being “for Him” and “through Him” man rebelled against the Creator and chose to reign for self and through self. History has demonstrated that this self-centered life ends in vanity for the individual and dishonor to God’s eternal purpose.

Jesus Christ came to redeem man from his self-centered life, and to bring us back to a right relationship with God that we may serve im “for whom are all things and through whom are all things.” The Creator is also the Redeemer. God’s plan was to bring “many sons to glory,” i.e., to bring many to a saving relationship with Himself through the atoning work of His Son, Jesus Christ who is the Leader in bringing “many sons” to God.

Jesus lived His life on this earth absolutely and entirely for His Father in heaven. He says to us, “All things are for My Father.” His commitment was absolute. His blessedness and everlasting glory are found in living wholly for the Father.

“Through whom are all things” was also true of Jesus. He declared that He could do nothing of Himself because He did only that which the Father showed Him and said to Him. “But He answered them, ‘My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working.’ . . . Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner. . . I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me’” (John 5:171930). Jesus counted it all joy to do everything in total dependence upon His Father. It was “all things through God.” He did not do anything of Himself, but in continual dependence waiting on the Father working in Him.

The great truth of the Christian life is “all for God,” and “all through God.” The more intimate is our daily walk with the Father, the more we will love and please Him.

“All for God” without exception for a moment, a thought, a word, a promise, a person, a passion, or a possession is the goal of believer. This is the manner in which we please Him perfectly.

“All through God” is the only way we can live a life pleasing to Him. The clearer we focus on doing everything for God the greater is our sense of utter frustration and impotence because you and I cannot do it in our own strength. Only Jesus Christ can live such a life. I cannot in my sinful nature which is prone to please self. But what I cannot do, God can do. God the Holy Spirit works in us to do God’s perfect will. Because it is “all of God” the Holy Spirit does it “all through God.”

As we make ourselves available to Him, He does in and through us all that pleases Him. What is demanded of us is a life of union with Jesus Christ. “For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren” (Hebrews 2:11). To live in that oneness is to do “all for God” and “all through God.” The only way to please God is to make ourselves available to Jesus Christ living in us.

The disciple of Jesus Christ no longer lives to please himself. He lives for the Kingdom of God. Whatever happens to him is unimportant; “all for God” is all-important to the disciple. In place of all selfish attainment, however noble, must be a desire, in deed a passion that demands “all for God.” If it is “all for God” then He will be honored and glorified throughout all eternity. To God alone be the glory!Selah!

He Frustrates the Plans Of

He frustrates the plans of the wicked. Psalms 146: 9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

This is why I am not afraid of the world economic forum or their minions in world governments.

Down through out history there have always been tyrants that believed themselves to be gods and tried to conquer and have dominion over all creatures of the world, including mankind ( I refuse to be brain dead and call us human kind ).

Oh yes, for a while it looks like they are succeeding.

But, then the hand of the Lord turns against them. It always happens like a avalanche. It starts out small but as it gains momentum it becomes bigger, stronger and more destructive. Their final defeat is terrible and humiliating like Hitler or Pol Pot.

I recently read an article that stated that the righteous were always spared the destruction of the tyrants. Oh, they suffered but by the protective hand of Jehovah they were never defeated.

Do not trust me, trust the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ, the wicked never get away with it. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense. The God of vengeance Job 11:20 ) that You protect Your children from wicked ones and that You are a God of recompense. That the wicked shall be appropriately punished both in this life and in the eternal one. I praise You in the name of The Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen

A Soft Whisper.

After the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was a voice, a soft whisper. 1 Kings 19:12 The Holy Bible, The Christian Standard Bible

Most people are terrified of silence because that is when The Holy Spirit speak with them. And, He is telling them something they do not want to hear. Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah

And Thank Him

 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer without having thanks included in it is like the greedy always saying gimme, gimme, gimme without saying thank you. Why would Jehovah even listen to such a selfish request? Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah

He Never Thinks He

Pride comes before being destroyed and a proud spirit comes before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Pride slays thanksgiving . . . a proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.” H. W. Beecher

Wisdom from a Senior

After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children and my friends, I have now started loving myself.

I have realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.

I have stopped bargaining with vegetable & fruit vendors. A few pennies more is not going to break me, but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.

I leave my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is toiling much harder for a living than I am.

I stopped telling the elderly that they’ve already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down memory lane & relive their past.

I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.

I give compliments freely & generously. Compliments are a mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me. And a small tip for the recipient of a compliment, never, NEVER turn it down, just say “Thank You.”

I have learned not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances.

I walk away from people who don’t value me. They might not know my worth, but I do.

I remain cool when someone plays dirty to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat & neither am I in any race.

I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human.

I have learned that it’s better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof, whereas with relationships, I will never be alone.

I have learned to live each day as if it’s the last. After all, it might be the last.

I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself. Happiness is a choice. You can be happy at any time, just choose to be!

Is a Good Idea Because

To turn the other cheek means if someone insults us not to take it personally ( which is a good idea because this is the first means of a narcissist attacking us. Then instead of getting into a fight they stand there looking stupid ). Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

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.

Here is His Reply

We have the neighbour from Hell living next door to us. He loves to pick fights and thinks we have to do everything on our property he demands we do. If he does not get his own way he is mean and spiteful.

When they ( his wife is just as bad ) first moved in and started causing problems I called the police and county for help.

They were absolutely useless ( Gee what are we paying taxes for again? ) .

Then the Lord spoke to me and said: What sorrow awaits those who look to Egypt for help, trusting their horses, chariots, and charioteers and depending on the strength of human armies instead of looking to the Lord,the Holy One of Israel. In his wisdom, the Lord will send great disaster; he will not change his mind.He will rise against the wicked and against their helpers. Isaiah 31:1-2 The Holy Bible The New Living Version

In essence He was saying: “ Why do you go to the police or the county for help? Am I not your God? Who knows how to handle him better: them or me? “

Then, He informed me to carry a camera with me at all times. When they misbehave, film it and give it to a lawyer. Let the lawyer handle it.

Since he has a long record of violence he has been told if he causes any trouble again he will be put away for good.

Poppa knew this and knew a lawyer would not be needed.

When I obeyed the Lords instructions, they instantly stopped their trouble making.

Fast forward five years and he has started it again.

This time I had a dream that there was a fast flowing river of pure water surrounding our land. A huge sink hole enveloped his property to be replaced by a calm, peaceful lake. The Lord spoke to me and said: “This is not your fault. He brought this on himself.”

The river represents Jehovahs protection and peace.

The sinkhole means it is game over for neighbours.

A few days later he started again.

We know he is off of his medication and smoking pot like a chimney ( which affects his brain function ). This morning he turned his radio on full blast a five o clock in the morning. He was looking to instigate a fight, as usual.

I prayed to the Lord for instruction on what to do.

Here is His reply: I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer .Rescue me, O Lord, from liars and from all deceitful people. O deceptive tongue, what will God do to you? How will he increase your punishment? You will be pierced with sharp arrows and burned with glowing coals. Psalms 120: 1-4 The Holy Bible The New Living Version

The arrows represent his heart which will be pierced with deep sorrow while the coals represent his brain boiling over with agony.

In other words, leave it in Jesus’ capable hands.

Jesus will not punish him.

He will allow allow him to self destruct while protecting me.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

There is always a time of reckoning whether for good or for bad. And, it shall be given back seven times in proportion to what you gave others. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Almakafi ( the lord our rewarder Hebrews 11:6 ) for being a rewarder to everyone whether they receive a blessing or a curse. You are a fair God and shall give back seven times more than we give whether good or bad. I praise you in the name of He who shall reward us all on the Day of Judgment, Jesus Christ. Amen

Most of the People Still Did Not

But despite all the miraculous signs Jesus had done, most of the people still did not believe in him. John 12:37 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

Have you ever tried talking with someone and they refused to listen?

You can give them all the irrefutable facts and they still laugh at you and call you crazy. You can get independent sources to back you up and they will accuse them of being liars and fakes.

It is not that they are stupid.

It is because they are wilfully ignorant. They are selfish. They know they have to admit they are wrong and change their lifestyle if they accept the truth you are sharing with them but are too proud and selfish to do so.

The arrogant say: I am right and I will not let the truth change my mind. Then when disaster strikes they blame everyone but themselves.

Try to warn a fool once. If they refuse to listen, walk away. It will save your sanity. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

I think all of us have experienced this during the scamdemic.

And if you think you are alone in this experience, just think; Jesus preformed MIRACLES and they STILL refused to believe in Him.

Talk about willfully ignorant huh?

“To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.” Thomas Paine

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit to educate me in Your Divine truth. It has blessed me to live a life of integrity and righteousness which is one of the most valuable treasures there is. I know how You feel when the wicked reject Your truth because they reject it from me so often. I praise You in the name of the wisest Teacher of all, Jesus Christ. Amen
