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.

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).

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

The Only Protection From Him Is

Satan is a thief, murderer and destroyer. He steals your peace. He kills your dreams and destroys your future. has come to steal, kill, and destroy. The only protection from him is the undefeatable Jesus Christ. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Love and Truth Belong To

I will listen to God the Lord. He has ordered peace for those who worship him. Don’t let them go back to foolishness. God will soon save those who respect him, and his glory will be seen in our land. Love and truth belong to God’s people; goodness and peace will be theirs. On earth people will be loyal to God, and God’s goodness will shine down from heaven. Psalm 85:8-11 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

Once you become a member of Jehovahs family, satan and his minions will do everything they can to destroy that loving relationship.

He will make you think of the good old days.

If they were so good why did you leave them for Jesus?

Do not hang out with those old friends.

Instead of watching the filthy garbage on TV or the internet. Why not listen to godly sermons by Charles Stanley or Allister Begg, or John MacArthur?

Instead of that satanic garbage they call music today ( listen to the words and see what they are saying and see if you still want to listen to that crap) why not listen to the old hymns and sing them back to Jesus.

See how much more enjoyable they are.

When you do these The Holy Spirit will bless you with Heavenly love, joy and peace ( He certainly does me ).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace Isaiah 9:6, Romans 8:31-35 ) for blessing me with Your Divine peace when I listen and obey You. When the storms of life come thundering down all around me and I get down on my knees and cry out unto You, You bless me with the most soft, beautiful serenade of love that pacifies me heart and soul. I thank you oh most lovely One in the name of The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Reason for That Is

You have filled my heart with more happiness than they have when there is much grain and wine. Psalms 4: 7 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

I would like to change happiness to joyfulness.

The reason for that is that happiness is dependant upon physical thing while joyfulness is spiritual.

Happiness cannot ever compare to joyfulness.

It is like comparing a hotdog to a steak.

I am grateful for the physical blessing Poppa has blessed me with but remember the spiritual ones far longer and when I remember them it still makes my heart dance with joy. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for providing me with many circumstances which make my heart dance with joy. The biggest joy of my day of course being the time we spend together. I praise You in the name of He whose name makes my heart dance with joy, Jesus Christ. Amen

That is the Best Medicine

 I will lie down and sleep in peace. O Lord, You alone keep me safe. Psalms 4: 8 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

No matter what the stressful situation every time I take it to Poppa, He blesses me with assurance, comfort and peace. That is the best medicine to take.

You do not need to see a psychiatrist or start pooping poison called pharmaceutical pills which only get you addicted and breaks down your body so you have to take more poison. Yeah the pharma shareholders like it but your body sure does not.

Now of course the second part of the equation is that we must have faith and obey what Poppa instructs us to do.

So we will say you have gallstones and Poppa instructs you to cut back on your coffee. Your reply is up yours. Then you cry because you have gallstones.

Duh?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rophe (Exodus 15:26 The LORD our Healer ) for blessing me with Your gentle but powerful healing touch to heal my mental, physical and spiritual wounds. I praise You in the name of the best doctor, Jesus Christ. Amen

The reason worriers die sooner than non-worriers is because we have peace of mind that can only come from trusting Jehovah in every aspect of our lives. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

The Best Therapy For

Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks. And God’s peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

I have found that beginning each prayer request with praise for the gifts Poppa has given me has been the best therapy for worry, fear or aggravation.

By the time I finish praising Poppa my confidence in Him strengthens me, calms me and assures me everything is in His steady hands.

There is no need to worry or be afraid because He has whatever is agitating us covered.

There is no need to be aggravated because either He will solve the problem for us or teach us how to master it ourselves or with the help of The Holy Spirit. It is something I really do not understand but am deeply grateful for.

When we learn to give thanks first most of our distresses melts away like a snowman in the Sahara desert at noon. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah Christ’s peace means:  pe-ace… place each aggravation at Christ’s feet… expectantly!

Prayer: Oh my precious Jehovah Jireh (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide ) may I always have my hand out in gratitude for Your generous gifts You have abundantly blessed me with before I have my hand out asking for more. I humbly ask this in the name of He who had His two hands out on a cross to bless me with eternal salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

May I suggest we Christians start voting for politicians that have Christian morals like The Christian Heritage Party for the election here in Ontario Canada. Our rights and freedoms depend upon it.
