Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Which Son are You?

 “What do you think? There was a man who had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ And he answered, ‘I will not’; but afterward he regretted it and changed his mind and went. Then the man came to the second son and said the same thing; and he replied, ‘I will, sir’; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of the father?” Matthew 21: 28- 31 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Which Son are You?

Personally I am the first son.

There have been so many times I believed Jehovah to be insane when He sent me on a task. Many times I stomped my foot and flat out refused to obey such a ludicrous suggestion. Upon reflection in quiet times I would slowly submit ( even though I was certain it was going to end disastrously for guess who). To my total shock and amazement the task was gloriously completed and I could not cease proclaiming His awesomeness and me admiration of Him. As my walk with our Beloved Heavenly Father progressed and these tasks became more challenging my attitude evolved from one of : “ Are you nuts; this is certain disaster. “ to : “ Okay my Love, I do not know how You are going to do it and am certainly looking forward to Your unusual way of providing for this child of Your to not only complete the task but to do so in a manner which glorifies You. “

Jehovah does not care if you argue as long as you obey. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have met many who openly profess to be obedient children of God yet refuse to obey His leading. They are the naughty second child.

Which one are you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to prick my conscience into obedience unto You. I love You and always desire to be a loving obedient child of Yours. I humbly thank you in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

According to His Work

live-generously

“For God pays a man according to his work, And He will make every man find [appropriate] compensation according to his way. Job 34:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

According to His Work.

I do not know about you but that gives me a feeling of joy , peace, and assurance. Now in my later years and slowing down it is good to know Jehovah will reward me for my faithful service. There is no expectation of living in a mansion with babes waiting on my every whim. There is no expectation of living like a strong twenty something. There is no expectation of living surrounded by luxury gained at some mall. There is expectation of living a life dedicated unto Jehovah and sharing fond memories with Him. A life filled with peace, love and joy.

On the other hand I see so many wicked ones whose body has been destroyed living the sex, drugs and rock and roll nonsense. They lived for the good times and for themselves. Now the good times are over. They are a shell of a living being. I see those who worked very hard to attain wealth and took great delight in cheating others to enlarge their treasure only to see their treasure mean nothing to them because it cannot love them back.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for Your faithful promise to reward me for all my freely given service unto You. May You move the wicked ones unto turning from their dark deed unto Your righteous deeds so they will not suffer Your terrible wrath. I reverently request this in the name of He who will be handing out the drowns in Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Yield and Submit.

WE MUST LET GO

 “Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you. Job 22:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes the two. It takes the two parts in this verse before you are blessed.

Number one is to stop.

Stop being independent and stubborn. Jehovah cannot and will not ever attempt to help someone who refuses help. We must yield our will and wants and submit unto Him.

The next part is just as difficult.

To submit ourselves unto Jehovah means we are to give Him total control over our lives like a horse submits to the reins of its rider.

Once these two difficult tasks are completed then come the blessing. The blessing may be a physical blessing but there is always a spiritual blessing. The spiritual blessing of course is that there is a lot less stress in your life because you trust Jehovah has control of your life. The same can be said for worry. Instead your life is filled with peace, contentment and a knowledge of security knowing we have a superior being directing and helping us live a Divine life.

Leaving it in Jehovahs hands is the better choice. He knows what He is doing while we only think we know what we are doing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the privilege of being a humble servant of the most noble King. Please bless me to always have a submissive heart unto Your will in every aspect of my life. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in Your majestic name. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

I will Look in Triumph

CHRISTS POWER

 People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. John 3:19-20 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

When I first became a Christian it confused me why certain folks hated me with a passion even though I did nothing to offend them.

After reading this first the Lord blessed me with understanding.

They hate all Christians because we who walk in the Light convict those that enjoy walking in the darkness. They know what they are doing is wrong ( the Holy Spirit convicts them ) yet steadfastly refuse to repent of their wicked ways. They laugh and say that either there is no God or He does not care.

When they encounter us true Christians their conscience is pricked and they do not like it.

Then in their evil perverted minds they conceive every torment they can upon us and laugh at our discomfort. They foolishly believe they are getting away with it.

Time and again it clearly states that Jehovah is a God of justice and He will deliver terrifying justice on His time and in His way.

From my experience those whom the wicked tormented will be witnesses to it. I certainly did not enjoy it, indeed , many times I wanted to cry watching them suffer, but accept that Jehovah cannot allow the wicked to go unpunished.

Those who walk in Christ will be avenged in Gods time in Gods way. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We do not gloat over it but allow it to digest into our heart and mind so that we can share this testimony with other tormentors in the hopes that they will repent.

As well, it is encouraging to those who are being wickedly persecuted. The Lord is on my side, He is among those who help me;

Therefore I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for condemning the wicked ones and delivering true justice to the wicked ones that inflict pain and suffering upon the innocent ones. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ . Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Wisdom is Having.

listen-to-our-wise-elders

Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I love to learn and am always willing to watch, listen, learn and be thankful towards my mentors. As a result there have been many disasters averted in my life.

A wise man listens, learns and obeys . Joseph- Anthony: Green

As for being self disciplined that requires the blessing of the Holy Spirit. We are all weak from time to time and need His infinite strength to get us through some trial and temptations. This as well has helped me avert many disasters in my life.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Knowledge comes from experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have seen far too many idiots continue upon the same road to disaster. No it is not repeating the same mistake.

The first time it is a mistake, after that it is just pain stupid and stubborn. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have seen way too many needlessly suffer because of this.

When I was treeplanting I would take the rookies and teach them the proper way to plant ( there was a lot more to it than just slamming a tree into the ground ) at the geginnig of the season.. I was not paid to do this but did it because of the graciousness in my heart. As they honed their skills they began to plant more trees. We were paid by how many trees we planted so they began to make a lot more money. Then there were always the: “ I know, I knows.’ ). These are the ones that when I offered to teach them to plant they would always say I know what I am doing, I know. As a result they would work twice as hard as the ones that listened to me and make one third the amount of money.

Stupidness and stubbornness go hand in hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

There is a price to pay for stupidity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for all of Your patience and wisdom you have blessed me with through my walk with You. It has been a true God send in my life. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Gather Them in My Arms

 

I am witnessing the suffering of certain family members. For years I have tried to share with them that their selfish, greedy, lying cheating lifestyle is going to come back to bite them. Over the past few years I have witnessed them slowly descending into a living Hell of their own making. Their financial situation is worsening by the day. Their health is slowly ebbing away (once they were very active but now because of health problems they can go out less and less). They are suffering intensely. There is constant fighting in the home.

Even though they have abused me when I witness this catastrophe it is agonizing (agony is mush more intense than pain).

I want to gather them in my arms and explain to them that this is their own undoing and if they do not repent their future will only get worse. Alas, it will be to no avail. I know in my heart they will not listen. I know exactly how Jesus felt when he said: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who murders the prophets and stones [to death] those [messengers]who are sent to her [by God]! How often I wanted to gather your children together [around Me], as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling.” Matthew 23:37 Holy Bible, Amplified Version Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I am sure the Holy Spirit has spoken to their hearts but they laughed and said there is no God. Even now I am sure the Holy Spirit is convicting them but in their stubbornness and pride they refuse to repent of their wicked ways.

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 1:18

I recently read an article about a man who traveled across either Canada or the U.S and spoke with folks from all ages, finical groups and ethnic groups. His findings confirmed what they Bible says when it says that as you do unto others, so too will it be done unto you. It also says that when you obey Jehovah He will bless you seven times. When you disobey Jehovah, He will curse you seven times.

And if by these things you are not turned to Me, but act with hostility against Me, then I also will act with hostility against you, and I will strike you seven times for your sins. Leviticus 26:23-25 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I am seeing it in my family and it is like a knife piercing my heart.

Are you living a lying, cheating,conniving, back biting, self centered life right now?

Beware, Jehovah is a God of justice and you will suffer much more than you gain in the long run. It may take years or it may take decades but Jehovahs justice will prevail. And when that justice happens, there is no conning Him, no plea bargaining or parole. Justice will be served to its fullest extent. I have seen it happen repeatedly through the last decade with numerous others so do not laugh and say it will not happen to you.

Gods justice will be done in Gods time, in Gods way. You will not escape it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) send the Holy Spirit to convict the wicked ones of their evil ways unto repentance so they do not continue to suffer in their lives for their obstinance and cheating of others. May this be done so they do not suffer the supreme price for their evil in the damnation of eternal torment in Hell. I humbly request this in the name of the supreme judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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