They Lose More than They Gain

SCAMMERS PAY

But they lie in wait for their own blood, They lurk secretly for their own lives. So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners. Proverbs 1:18-19 New King James Version

As I grow older the more I see the righteous hand of Jehovah in the wicked ones lives. When they are young they laugh and believe they are getting away with scamming others. They become bitter, lonely and poor financially. Many in their old age cry and beg to die to end their pain but they must live on in a daily life of living hell. In life, they lose more than they gain. Go to a seniors home and watch those who have no visitors ( now some times they are far from family and friends so they miss them), ask those who knew them in their younger age and you will find they were scammers, deceivers and manipulators who cared about nothing and no one but themselves. Now in their final years that is all they have, themselves. In life, they lose more than they gain.

As well, I have seen those whose only goal in life is to get the most toys. They will lie, cheat and steal to get what they want. At some time they realize that those toys cannot love them in return and they have wasted their lives on what is actually very frivolous. In life, they lose more than they gain.

The problem is that the heart of the greedy and Hell have this in common: they always scream”I want more, more, more, they are never satisfied.” Joseph- Anthony:Green

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-Naheh (the Lord who Smites) for delivering true justice to the wicked ones for their evil ways. I humbly exalt You in the name of he who defeats all evil Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

No pretenders allowed.

be-satisfied

One person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth. Proverbs13:7 New Living Translation

One of the major reasons empires fell down through history was because people were cheating on their taxes.

Are we not seeing all these filthy rich putting their money in tax havens then cry about the debt?

Now you do not have to be stinking rich to cheat. To Jesus cheating out of a nickel is just as condemning as cheating out of a million.

 He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” Luke 20:25 New Living Translation

When you are honest and give your life in loving service to Jesus, your riches will be in Heaven, when you are dishonest and pretentious your reward is going to be in Hell. Joseph –Anthony :Green

I have seen so many people spend money they do not have to spare on frivolous things like the latest fashion just to impress others. Fashions change as much as you change your underwear and they do it to keep the fools buying unnecessary things.

Is it not much better to impress God? Is it not much more pleasing to Him and yourself when you give yourself in love to service to Him?

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10 New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) guide me that my actions impress my best friend who is of course You. I sincerely request this in Your loving name. Amen.

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

Do not fall for the masquerade.

NO DOMINION

And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 New International Version

This is why it is important to read our Bible, spend time in prayer and spend time fellow shipping with other believers.

Satan will come to us as many masquerades. He may come to you as one of these deceivers who preach the gospel of prosperity. Give your life to Jesus and He will give you everything you desire.

Nothing is further from the truth.

A Christian life is a life of sacrifice and one that concentrates more upon receiving spiritual wealth in Christ that in material gains.

He may come to you in the form of someone who is controlling and informs you, you have committed an unforgivable sin and the only way out is to follow their cult. When we repent with a sincere heart we are forgiven, not by what someone says but by the blood of Jesus.

That is why we need our daily nourishment of Bible reading to gain knowledge and fellowship with both other brothers and sisters and daily communion with Jehovah God. By doing this we will be aware of the wicked ones masquerade and be able to defend ourselves from the attacks and to protect other innocent victims that the wicked one is preying upon.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with wisdom to defend myself from the wicked ones destructive schemes and with the power to defeat Him. Thank you for blessing me with Your Divine protection when I am weak and gullible. I extol You in the name of He whose death and resurrection defeated the wicked one for eternity Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Chased Me Out.

 

 

HONESTY

 And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge. Exodus 31:3 New King James Version

They began doing construction work in the apartment above where I live in with jackhammers and sledge hammers going all day. This of course means it is impossible to do any writing. I researched on the internet where there is a library nearby. The one found is modern and quiet (for China, these are the noisiest people I have ever met) and there outlets to plug in your computer to work in an air conditioned building. Considering that it gets to a hundred and ten in the apartment with no air conditioning during most of the year this was a blessing

On the first day there while taking a break I felt the Lord moving me to go for a walk on the library grounds. During this walk I was led to a walkway from the library to close to the apartment. This was a blessing because it meant that I did not have to suffer the cattle car experience of the subway every morning nor have to spend money on subway fare. As well, as it takes about an hour to walk there from the apartment it is good exercise and being outside.

When Chinese see a foreigner they always want to trick them into giving them free English lessons. While meditating on this problem the Lord reminded me of a sermon I heard some time in the past. It was how the early Christians were known as the people of The Way. The Way of course being that Jesus is the way.

So if the Chinese try their conniving, I merely instruct them that I am a teacher of The Way” and ask them if they are interested in learning about Christ. If they say no then I ask them why they are bothering me (You have to be blunt otherwise they will not leave you alone until they get what they want). If they say they are (many Chinese will lie and pretend to be interested just to get free English lessons) then they will pay for the class before the class begins (Chinese will say that they will pay and then at the end of the class not pay. I have ten years experience with these creatures and have learned my lessons the hard way. ) to prove their sincerity and yes it does say in the Bible that teachers are to be paid.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with a heart, mind and body that is always totally obedient to You in every aspect of my life. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us by example what true obedience is Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Editors note- this was written in my final days of living in China.

His Trouble Shall Return

He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown. Psalm 7:15-16 New King James Version

We have all met, I am sure, those who delight in causing trouble.  They love to cause fights between families, they love to cause fights between friends, they love to cause fights at work or school and they love to cause fights at public events (just look at soccer matches in Europe). They get their perverted pleasure from watching others fight and the grief it causes.

Give it time. It always comes back on them. And when it happens it always happens when they least expect it and at a very inopportune time (like say door crashers at a wedding reception or at a social event where it will cause them a lot of embarrassment.

The other thing I have noticed about them is that when they are young they believe they are getting away with it but as they age (it usually begins in their forties) they find themselves friendless. When they need companionship or help there is no one there for them.

Another thing I find happens is that they end up with tormentors (say a neighbour that is constantly playing loud music and doing things to anger them and laughing in their faces. Their lives are one of constant torment.

I have seen it too many times to count (that is one advantage of being older; we get to see them receive them fruits of their labours as it were). When confronted with these wicked creatures do not take things into your own hands but leave them in the hands of Jehovah. It may seem as if they are getting away with it and you may not see Jehovahs justice but be sure they will get what they have coming to them.

WRONG WALK

The seeds you plant today you will harvest in abundance tomorrow. Be careful the type of seeds you are planting. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. Proverbs 21:15 New International Version

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. Luke 18:7-8 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is the Supreme Judge) for promising and delivering on Your Divine word that You will ensure true justice is done to the wicked who persecute, harm and cheat Your beloved children. I thank You in the name of the King who will deliver eternal justice on the Day of Judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.

They Will Get Their Wages in Full.

A wicked person earns deceptive wages, but the one who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward. Proverbs 11:18 New International Version

The deceptive man lies, cons, deceives, manipulates and steals to get what he wants.

I have seen many when a tree planter that did this and laughed thinking they were getting away with it. In the end they lost their business, their homes, their families and their savings. They live out on the street with the homeless that they arrogantly mocked.

The reward of the righteous may be material but will definitely be spiritual and a beautiful communion with Jehovah. Their ultimate reward of course is a mansion in Heaven surrounded by brothers and sisters who love them. Of course the ultimate of ultimates is being with Jesus for eternity.

HONESTY

Which are you seeking after?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan  (God is gracious) for so abundantly blessing me with Your rich gifts both physical and spiritual. Please bless me to use these blessings to share with others to enrich them as You have enriched me. I meekly ask this in the name of He who blessed me with the pouring out of His life for my salvation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Will not Laugh in the End.

Jacob conned his brother out of his birthright and his father our of the blessings. When he fled from his brothers anger he settled with his uncle and fell in love with his cousin.

The uncle conned Jacob into serving him for over fourteen years.

Let this be a lesson to you.

HONESTY

If you are a conner, deceiver, manipulator and liar it does come back to bite you. I have seen many who in their early years were the worst I have ever met. Now they are old and are constantly getting conned and manipulated. Their lives are one of constant grief and loneliness.

Is that where you are heading?

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) speak to me and convict me when I am beginning to become a Conniving Kevin so that I do not violate Your holy command of do not do unto others as you would not want them to do unto you. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who was honest everything He did Jesus Christ. Amen.

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