Whoever Chooses to Be.

  So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. James 4:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Remember the old saying: “ Be careful of the friends you choose because you will become like them. “ Well, it is true.

If you choose to be friends with Jesus you will emulate Him in thought word and deed.

And what is Jesus like?

He is a loving God.

So when you become like Him you become a loving man woman or child. You will be filled with Divine love, joy, peace and purpose. Your life will glow with Heavenly love for all to see and that is the greatest witness there can ever be.

If, on the other hand you choose to follow the world ( which is satanic ) you are in reality following satan all the way into Hell.

What type of personality will you have?

Selfishness, self centered, mean, unethical, arrogant, rude and cruel. You will become a creature from Hell ( and I know enough worldly folks to rightly call them a creature from Hell). They are repulsive ( you will draw folks away from you not towards you ) and repugnant (causing intense displeasure, disgust, or resentment ) .

You are Jehovahs enemy.

“Every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you…either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature.” ~C.S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with sharing a Heavenly friendship. With me. Everything else pales in comparison to this Divine relationship. I praise You in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Peevish Discontented Minds

  The whole congregation of the Israelites [grew discontented and] murmured and rebelled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,and the Israelites said to them, Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and ate bread until we were full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this entire assembly with hunger.” (To understand Israel’s rebellious behavior, it is important to grasp the contrast between life in Egypt and nomadic life in the wilderness. Despite the hardships of slavery survival was not an issue in Egypt, where they were guaranteed food and other necessities. But the desert wilderness was hostile and unforgiving, and survival was an art. Desert nomads needed to understand the wilderness in order to stay alive; they had to learn, among other things, how to protect themselves from the weather, where to find water and pasture, and how to find and prepare scarce food, or live primarily from what their livestock could provide them. So the Israelites viewed every new problem they faced as life-threatening. Instead of looking back and taking comfort from God’s earlier miracles, they doubted God’s ability and willingness to help them. Their fears and doubts subsequently came to be expressed as irrational anger toward Moses. ) Exodus 16:2-3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many of us ask Jehovah for something but are never satisfied?

We ask for a job but when we get one we do not like the work because it is too hard or it is too boring.

We ask for a place to live but it is too far from the bus stop or grocery store or park.

We ask for direction in life but it is not where we want to go.

We desire good Christian friends but can always find fault with them.

I think the real reason we are discontented is because of greed. We want the best and nothing less is good enough for us.

Jehovah blesses with what we need not always with what we want. Joseph son of Jehovah

That is the ultimate insult of ungratefulness and a huge slap in the face to our loving generous Father in Heaven. More so for those of us that have walked with Christ for any length of time and so can reflect back at His previous provisions for us. Peevish discontented minds will find fault with that which has no fault in it but that it is too good for them.

Those that might be very happy often make themselves very miserable by their discontents. Matthew Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a grateful heart towards you and those around me for all the wonderful blessings You and those around me share with me every day. I ask this in the name of the greatest blessing of which I am eternally grateful for Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Bag with Holes in It.

 “Is it time for you yourselves to live in your [expensive] paneled houses while this house [of the Lord] lies in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! You have planted much, but you harvest little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have enough to be intoxicated; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns wages earns them just to put them in a bag with holes in it [because God has withheld His blessing].” Haggai 1:3-6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you have a bag with holes in it ( instead of bag insert wallet )?

Could it be because you are so selfish that you earn a penny and spend a dollar ( on yourself of course)? So when you refuse to share your wealth Jehovah allow the devil to tempt you into getting into dept to satisfy your unquenchable desire for more, more, more. Then you are miserable.

Could it be that you plant a lot of seeds to be friends with others while neglecting the crop of daily interaction with Jehovah so you harvest a little from your relationship with Him?

Could it be that in your quest for recognition form others ( self-centeredness- look at me, look at me) that you never get enough and go to foolish and many times dangerous lengths to get noticed by others instead of directing them to Jehovah? As a consequence you are never satisfied. Instead of nurturing a loving relationship with Jehovah you nurture your own ego and as a result you are cold with little or no love in your life. As a result the temple of Jehovah that resides within you is in ruins.

Prayer: I humbly pray my loving Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) that You daily guide this modest servant of Your to constantly build upon and glorify Your Holy Temple so that it is a beacon to those walking in the cold dark world to You amazing Temple. I sincerely request this in the name of He who shines the most brilliantly of Your holy temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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.

I Know Two People

 

 Kindness and truth will be to those who devise good. Proverbs 14:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I know two people who just turned eighty a short while ago.

The one lived for herself all of her life and is now living alone in a big house with no friends. No one cared about her birthday. She has no one to help her and her life is very lonely and difficult. She always laughed at the goody two shoes, now she envies her.

The other was always and still is always active in helping in the community. There was what seemed like an endless line of folks every day coming to her house with home made gifts. If she ever needs any help there are countless volunteers lined up to gladly help her.

With age we reap ten fold the seeds we have sown in our younger years. Generously be loving and caring to others, you will need it when you get old and it is repaid unto you in abundance. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to be a blessing to all those around me so as to be a respectful emissary of You. I humbly request this in the name of He who gave His cherished life for me Jesus Christ Amen.

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

The Cure for the Bait.

 

 He who guards his mouth and his tongue Guards himself from troubles. Proverbs 21:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I know many wicked degenerates that take immoral pleasure in starting fights and twisting words. They stand there and laugh at you as you become so confused you do not know what you are saying.

Here is the cure for their bait: Write it down. These twisted souls hate when they see you write down their questions and statements while staying silent. When they ask me why this is being done it is explained that the reason for this is to confirm what the perverts said so there is no discrepancy about it later ( in other words I did not say that). They hate that.

If you do not know the answer then inform them you are going to discuss this with a qualified councilor ( they hate that as well).

Asking questions instead of giving statements to narcissists is the greatest tool to protect yourself from them and to expose them for the wicked fools they really are. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“The ability to speak several languages is an asset, but the ability to keep your mouth shut in any language is priceless.” Unknown

The same can be said for gossip. It is like a rampant disease that spreads like wild fire.

I used to have a game when teaching. I would write something down and whisper it in the child on the right, they would whisper it to the next and so on until it came back to me. It was NEVER what I said. Remember that the next time you feel the urge to join in this destructive perverted game.

Be careful about gossip, it destroys many innocent and you will be held accountable for that in Christs Court of Justice. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for helping me to keep my mouth shut until the appropriate time so as to avoid certain disaster. I extol Thee in the name of He who only spoke words of wisdom Jesus Christ. Amen.

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