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).

I Will Call to The

I will call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I will be saved from my enemies. Psalms 18:3 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

There has been numerous times when I thought my enemies would be victorious over me and indeed a few times when I thought they were going to kill me.

I was standing up for what was right and or was protecting the innocent.

They were standing there laughing at me. They had pistols and knives.

I had angels.

Suddenly they dropped their weapons and ran screaming away terrorized.

Those that saw it informed me there were huge angels standing behind me and they did not look happy.

This happened to me once in Mexico and once in China.

I thought they were on drugs or were drunk but realize now that Jesus did indeed send angels to protect me.

For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. Psalm 91:11 The Holy Bible The New Living Version

Then there was the schemers and scammers who plan nasty surprises for me where they are sure I would crash and burn.

The Holy Spirit guided me to behave and speak in a certain manner and victory was mine.

The Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what needs to be said. Luke 12:12 The Holy Bible The New Living Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for blessing me with being able to send angles to protect me from danger and win my battles for me. Thank you for sending The Holy Spirit to inspire me with the proper words to say and behaviour to conduct myself in to shut the wicked down when they scheme against me. I praise You in the name of my victorious King, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Must Suffer Many Things To

“We must suffer many things to enter God’s kingdom.” Acts 14:22 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

After accepting Jesus as your Saviour, best friend and King, satan will do everything he can to destroy this relationship.

He knows you and so he know your weaknesses.

He will entice you to sin and then condemn you and say Jesus hates you because of the sin.

He will try to cause you to doubt the authenticity of the Bible and that it is not Gods word but made up by man.

He will cause you to doubt that Jesus loves you, Jesus cares about you.

He will cause you to doubt about His protection and provision.

We are in a true holy war when we become Christians.

A man and womans character is strengthen and matured through adversity. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Our ace in the hole though is The Holy Spirit.

When you repent He will reassure you of your forgiveness. He will guide you and supply all of your need. He comforts you, encourages you, teaches you and guides you into an ever deeper loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and Himself.

Satan cannot and will never beat The Holy Spirit.

The closer you get to Jesus, the more you are going to suffer. The more you suffer, the closer you get to Jesus. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) that You bless me with The Holy Spirit to help me endure the suffering that always comes because of Being Your child. Thank you that You are able to reward me a hundred times more than the suffering. I praise You in the name of He who suffered for me on the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

Because I Trust In

Protect me, God,because I trust in you. Psalms 16:1 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

There has been so many times when I was going to go into battle against bullies and I prayed for Jehovah’s protection.

Most of the time He filled me with power and confidence to stare them down.

There has been just as many times when He either sent angels to protect me or caused Divine intervention to protect me.

There has been so many times when I was caught by sudden storms. There was no place to take shelter. I screamed out unto Jehovah to save me or else I shall die. The only way to describe what happened next is to call it Divine intervention. Another word for it is miracles. The first few times after the danger had passed I would say wow, what a great coincidence. Later, after meditating upon it, Jehovah would reveal to me it was His Divine intervention. I would be in shock and awe. As maturity slowly seeped into the relationship with the Trinity it became more and obvious of Their Divine intervention in my life. Who knows how many times they protected me without my knowledge.

Jehovah, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit are the best protect services there can ever be. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Izuz Wegibbor (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Strong and Mighty ) for blessing me with Your strong and mighty hand to protect me from natural disasters and from the vile slimy hand of the villainous’ hand when it tries to either harm me or destroy me. I praise You in Your loving, protective name. Amen
