Book of Wisdom

 The thoughts and purposes of the [consistently] righteous are just (honest, reliable). But the counsels and schemes of the wicked are deceitful Proverbs 12:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One thing I have learned in my long walk with Christ is that a good name is worth more than a big bank account. There have been times when I was honest even though it cost me a little with local merchants ( Like one time I forgot to pay for an item that cost a dollar and walked two miles back to pay for it. Most folks laughed and thought I was stupid. However, now that merchant always gives me better deals than they do anyone else. Now, they are indignant and ask what makes me so special? ).

The deeds you do today will be rewarded tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The other benefit of being honest is that I sleep good at night while the dishonest worry about getting caught ( which they always do ). Most dishonest people suffer numerous health problems and they can all be traced back to stress caused by worry of getting caught and being greedy.

“A godly mind prizes honor above worldly good.” Rembrandt

I know of one man that I asked to help me and he replied that he could not because he did not have gas money to come here to help me and then he went out fishing. Now whenever he tries to scam me ( scamming is where you try to get something from someone without giving anything in return) he is reminded that if he does not have gas money to help me he does not have gas money to scam anything out of me, it drives him nuts.

“All human sin seems so much worse in its consequences than in its intentions.” Reinhold Niebuhr

The greatest reward of being honest is the blessing of becoming closer to my Beloved in Heaven. As a consequence He warns me of those who deal dishonestly.

I have seen many say that they believe that everything that they touch is cursed, but if they reflect back on their life they will see that they were extremely dishonest with others so yes Jehovahs hand is against them. The stupid thing is that they know if they turn from their wicked ways Jehovah will not only stop curing them but will begin to bless them yet they refuse to stop being dishonest.

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom” Thomas Jefferson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori ( the Lord is my Light ) for blessing me with Your light of truth and integrity in my life. It has proven the true manner in which to walk in my daily life. I praise You in the name of the Light of the World Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Do It.

 

 Let integrity and uprightness protect me Psalm 25:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Integrity means to have a firm adherence to a code of moral values. These will protect you from dishonour, jail and from being scammed. In other words you know what is right in Jehovahs eyes and you do it.

Once I was asked by a foreign agent representing many foreign teachers looking for a placement to give a review of a very bad school school I was teaching at. Because the truth was spoken and it was not very favourable the consequences were instant dismissal and threatened with jail if I refused to recant ( being a white round eye teaching in Asia you can bet that prison would not be a pleasant place to spend time in ) . Yes I was scared but stood my ground. The result was that the federal government became involved. Not only did I not do any time but was absolved of any wrong doing any time, however the owner of the school and his family were sentenced to five years in a federal prison. Later I could see the hand of Jehovah move in these events ( it was highly unusual for the federal government to become involved in a municipal affair. And, it was even higher unusual that a foreigner would be exonerated while a local went to prison).

“A godly mind prizes honor above worldly good.” Rembrandt

It also means not doing the wrong things.

Again, when I was in Asia there was ample opportunity that agents would get foreigners to forge documents for big companies that the quality of the product passes when in reality it is complete garbage. So, let us say that a company is selling dog food and its ingredient are toxic and cheap quality, they can kill the animal if it eats it. A foreigner will sign a document representing a company like say that sounds like Calmart. Then it is shipped out. When it arrives Calmart refuses to accept it but the Asian company threatens to sue because their representative signed the release forms ( when in reality it was a foreigner not even working for Calmart. The Asian agent paid the foreigners a lot of money. Even though I needed the money I refused. The others laughed at me for being a goody two shoes. Eventually the federal government in that Asian country became involved and sent undercover agents in to investigate. There was a huge round up with an enormous amount to foreigners sent to a federal prison for a very long time. My integrity saved me.

Now how do we gain this valuable asset?

We spend time reading our Bibles and requesting Jehovah bless us with opening our eyes to what is right and wrong in His divine eyes and the strength to obey Him, no matter what the cost.

I have seen many scammers get scammed in my life. I have seen many crooked ones fall into total destruction and a slow death in shame and humiliation because of their sin but I have seen many more of those who walk in integrity rise from the ashes into glory. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsori ( The Lord is my Strength )for blessing me with the strength to stand firm upon Your firm ground of Holy integrity so as to honour You and prevent certain disaster in my life. I praise You in the name of He who is the most high integrity Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Loves to Oppress and Exploit.

 

 A merchant, in whose hand are false and fraudulent balances; He loves to oppress and exploit. Hosea 12:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This does not sound like the feel good Jesus loves everybody that the false teachers spew to the public does it?

If you read your Bible you will find in both the New Testament and the Old Testament that Jehovah is a God of justice and He delights in justice.

Those who commit fraud are laughing and saying there is no God and if there is He does not see nor care about what is happening here on earth and even if He does He will do nothing about this crime.

Only a fool would believe he can make a fool out of Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Jehovah loves to prove them wrong and make fools out of them. He loves to turn the tables on them and exploit their weaknesses so they are the ones made a sucker out of. This is done so that all the world sees and knows there is a God in Heaven and He is indeed truly a God of justice. These merchants are liars and thieves and foolishly believe they are getting away with it but it will come back to bit them and bite them hard.

“Lying covers a multitude of sins – temporarily.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for the promise that You will submit the evil ones to Your true justice and oppress and exploit them seven times what they have oppressed and exploited others. I exalt 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.

None of Those Who.

 

 Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed; Those who turn away from what is right and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed). Psalm 25:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Have you ever been treated unfairly by narcissists? They will use you and abuse you. They love to set you up to shame you and to start fights. They drag your good name through the mud and back stab you at every opportunity. They laugh and think it is funny.

I have experienced it with one who did this for decades. During this time Jehovah was teaching me how to deal with these foul creatures. At the time it looked like he was winning with his constant unwarranted attacks but slowly the tables turned and in time they turned faster. Now he will not show his face around me because the Lord has taught me to use the wicked ones wiles against him using the Holy Book and he looks like a fool and shames himself every time he opens his mouth.

Sometimes it is quick, sometimes it is slow but Jehovah always delivers on His promises. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength, wisdom, gracefulness and meekness to deal appropriately with the wolves that lurk amongst us. I praise You in the name of He who dealt most effectively with wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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.

Corrupts Good Morals.

WRONG WALK

 Do not be unequally bound together with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness ? 2 Corinthians 6:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Can a wolf live together with a deer ?

Of course not.

Why not ?

Because the first chance given the wolf will attack and devour the deer.

Can the antelope live together with the lion ? Of course not.

Why not ?

Because the first chance given the lion will attack and devour the antelope.

Can those who walk in the light of Christ be friends of those who walk in the darkness of Satan ?

Of course not.

Why not ?

Because everything they love we Christians hate and everything we Christians hate everything they love. It is even more important not to be unevenly yoked with unbelievers in marriage. That is a recipe for certain disaster and heart ache.

That does not mean we cannot work with them and be respectful towards them but we are to avoid friendships with them as their destructive manner and disposition will slowly destroy our divine manner and disposition. It will start out slowly without you even noticing it like a small patch of rust on a vehicle. But, just as the rust will slowly destroy the vehicle if not eradicated immediately so too will the uncircumcised of heart destroy our heart towards Christ slowly but surely un-noticed until it is too late for the foolish ones that play with the devils fire.

Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with Your Divine Heavenly and Your guidance towards those who are walking in the light. Thank you for Your Divine providence in warning me of the destructive wolfs out there that only seek to use and abuse others for their own wicked ends and to drive us away from You. I exalt You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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