While the Wicked are in My Presence.

DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO CONTROL YOU

I said, “ I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will muzzle my mouth While the wicked are in my presence.” Psalm 39:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is great advice because the wicked love to trap you in your words and misquote you to start fights and then sit back and laugh.

I have encountered many who have a conversation with me about someone else only to take what I said and twist it around when they relay it to the person talked about. The purpose of this is to cause a fight which satisfies their perverted pleasure.

I have learned the hard way that when someone gossips about someone to me I just ask them a simple question which ends the filth right there and there : “ And what do you say about me when I am not around ? “ They have a look of shock and the conversation is abruptly ended.

Another thing I like to do is get a pen and paper and start to write down what they are saying. When they ask me what I am doing my reply is that I am documenting what they are saying so as not to misquote them if the other person comes to me about what was said. They squirm like a worm on a hot frying pan.

And finally try this one : “ It has nothing to do with me . “

I like to live by the saying : “ Be quick to listen and slow to speak. “ it keeps me out of a lot of trouble.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Your Divine wisdom to keep my mouth shut around the wicked ones. In this way You have delivered me from their wicked schemes. I praise You in the name of He who refused to be trapped by Satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Made Them Male and Female.

DO NOT BE AFRAID

<!--

But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ Mark 10:6 Holy Bible, New International Version

In God we know.

In the homosexual community there is confusion.

We as Christians know we are a male or female because we know the truth of which sex God made us and are humble enough to accept it.

The homosexual community is filled with pride and sows confusion. They spread lies to confuse children like they do not know what sex they are. They spread lies like the homosexual lifestyle is normal (if this is true then why are most of the ones with syphilis, gonorrhea and aids homosexuals? Why are so many pedophiles homosexuals? Do you call this normal?) These lies are spread by Satan and those who follow him into Hell. Perhaps this is why the homosexual community so venomously, constantly, viciously attacks Christians.

With Christians not only are we not deceived by their wicked lies but we expose them as is our duty. We are to do so humbly, respectfully, wisely and meekly.

The first and major step in our battle with the satanic forces is to go to Jehovah in prayer.

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Do not expect those who worship this filthy wickedness to embrace the truth but rather expect a vicious battle. Does this battle not need to be fought the hardest in our schools to protect our children?

May I suggest you read United Nations Covenant on Social, Economic and Cultural Rights as well as United Nations Universal Rights of the Individual Citizen and see if they have the right to shove it down our throats? Fight legally using these two important documents.

“Persecution for righteousness’ sake is what every child of God must expect.” Charles Simeon

Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) bless me with Your brilliant light to slice through the thick cloud of wicked darkness that plagues our families, communities and nations in these perilous times. Please bless me with gracefulness and meekfulness when encountering the ignorant while shining Your Divine light of truth in this dark world. I humbly ask this in the name of He who is the light of the Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Be careful of the Snakes

In Exodus twenty one because the people angered Jehovah with their constant whining He brought serpents into their camp and many died.

Does the snake of whining or bitterness or greed or mean spiritness bite your heart and poison your relationship with Jehovah and with others?

Just as the people were healed when they looked to the bronze snake on a stake are we not healed when we look to Jesus on the cross with a repentant heart?

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

You cannot eat strawberries if you plant lemons. If you are bitter like a lemon you will end up alone and drink plentifully of the bitterness you have sown. If you plant the sweetness of love, you will be blessed with an abundant harvest of sweet love. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is our provider) for all the abundant blessings You have so generously given me. Please cultivate within me a heart filled with the deep sweet nectar of appreciativeness every day for Your numerous blessings both big and small. I humbly ask this in the name of He who was always appreciative of the daily bread You blessed Him with as He walked amongst us Jus Christ. Amen.

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

The Best Advice can be Found

David conferred with each of his officers, the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds. 1 Chronicles 13:1 New King James Version                                                                                     

When you need advice where should you go?                                          

Go where the best advice can be found.                                                    

It has been said that an alcoholic will listen to the advice of a recovered alcoholic more than someone who has a piece of paper hanging on the wall.  

 Why do you think that is?                                                                          

Could it be because they will listen to someone who has gone through what they are going through so they understand them?                                  

So too it is with all aspects of life.

 

If you want good advice why not seek it out in Godly Christian councilors that have gone through what you are experiencing now?

This is why it is a sin for Christians to sit on the sideline when they see others suffering what they have gone through and do nothing to help them. Yes we are to help others as we have been helped. If no one helped you through your difficult times think of how much you would have appreciated some help. Then do something about it when you see someone else going through their trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.                                                                                                           

On the flip side there is a prevailing belief amongst the younger generation that the older generation is useless and holds no wisdom that can help them. That is why they suffer in silence so much. 

             

If you are young and need help do not be arrogant and too proud to seek the advice of the older generation. Do not just whine to them but listen to their advice and obey it. 

                                                              TEAMWORK                                                        

Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing and benefits those who see the sun. Ecclesiastes 7:11 New International Version 

There is an old saying:”The more things change the more things are the same.” 

That means that okay maybe your grandma or grandpa does not know how to use a computer but events that occur in your life are the same as that which has occurred it theirs.                                                           

 “God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters.” J. H. Jowett                                                            

Listening to wise council has helped me tremendously to deal with some very serious issues in my life. If it were not for their Godly advice I do not think I would have made it through those extremely difficult experiences.                                                                                                 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh  (God is our Provider) for blessing me with many wonderful Godly wise mentors which have guided me through numerous difficult times. I humbly ask my Love that you open my eyes to the opportunity to emulate them when I see other brothers and sisters in need of Godly wisdom, compassion and encouragement. I sincerely request this in the name of the best mentor ever Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Who you going to trust?

First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:24  New King James Version

A stiff apology is a second insult.   G. K. Chesterton

DARKNESS

Have you ever had someone sarcastically apologize to you? You know they are not remorseful; they are doing it because they have to. If you grew up with brothers and or sisters I am sure that has happened to you.

Isn’t it better to not apologize at all?

When this happens to me I just look them in the eye and ask one simple question that drives them nuts: “Are you?”  It drives them nuts because their hypocrisy is exposed.

Then just talk with them, explain why what they did was wrong and why a sincere apology is in order. Tell them you refuse to talk with them until they are truly sorry. Then take it to the Lord in prayer that the Holy Spirit convicts them of their wrong attitude. In my experience it takes no more than a day or two before they come round.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; Remember, things could be worse. You could be them! Joseph- Anthony- Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God our peace) please fill me with wisdom and peace when encountering phony people who mock me with their sarcastic pretentious attitudes and apologies. In the name of the one who received many such insults Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

We Shall Reap.

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9 New King James Version

We all go through it don’t we?

We all go though those times when it seems as if there is no progress in our service unto Jehovah. We wonder if we are doing any good. Trust me from my experience we will be shocked when we get to Heaven how many are there because of the words or actions we took in this life. When I was a teacher in Asia I would live the Christian life and freely talk about walking the Christian walk when they curiously asked me why I was different from the other teachers. Most laughed at me and I wondered if I was getting through to any at all. It was very difficult. At the end of the semester there would always be a handful of students that quietly came to me and informed me that they accepted Jesus into their lives because of my example. Oh did my heart ever jump for joy. I often wonder how many accepted Jesus later on in life because of the seeds I sowed. We may not see the harvest of our planting in this life but please do not ever give up planting those seeds.

We also wonder what will happen to us as we age and have no money set aside for retirement because we have spent a lifetime in service to Christ.

I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken. Psalm 37:25 New King James Version

GOD PROVIDES

Now in my elder years this is my rock of hope that is my mantra. Folks ask me what is going to happen in a few years because I have no money set aside (The funny thing is that every time I saved a nice little nest egg something would come around and wipe it out. I believe Jehovah did this to keep me dependent upon Him instead of being dependent upon a retirement fund.) to depend upon in retirement.

I firmly believe in the saying: “What goes around will come around.”   Even stronger is my believe that Jehovah God is real and that I am His child. What father would not take care of their child?

The same goes for Jesus. I have spent over thirty years faithfully serving Him. I strongly believe He will always take care of me.

I pray this article has been of comfort and strength to all in the service of our Heavenly King.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your divine strength, comfort, encouragement, peace, love and joy as I humbly serve You. Thank you for promising to care for me in my elder years and look forward to seeing the beautiful flowers that I have sown in my service to You. I exalt You in the name of He who served You so admirably here on earth in His ministry Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which Water are You Drinking

Be appalled at this, you heavens, and shudder with great horror,” declares the Lord. “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water. Jeremiah 2:12-13 New International Version                                                                           

The spring of living water is the Holy Spirit.                                                

He brings renewed life, strength and healing into our spiritual lives. Because of this we live a life of peace, contentment and joy.                   

Yes we go through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares but we have the Holy Spirit to comfort, strengthen and heal us through out them all.                                                                                                     

The Holy Spirit blesses us with wisdom for the true source of the meaning of live which blesses us with purpose in life.               

                                                     JESUS IS THE LIVING WATER                     

He fills us with peace and contentment with the knowledge that we are cared for by the Supreme God whom loves us so very much.                                                                    

The broken cisterns is fleshly desires and the water they cannot hold is spiritual satisfaction which is only accomplished by a loving relationship with Jehovah.

This leads to many addictions such as alcoholism, materialism (the buy, buy, buy syndrome. Yes you feel happy when you buy it but then it quickly fades and you are left enslaved to the banks and credit cards to pay off the debt).                                                                                       

Sexual promiscuously (which leads to sexual diseases and baby murder- abortion, broken marriages and numerous other maladies).                           

Drug abuse which is a living hell and slowly drags you into an eternal one. 

 Can any of you add to the list?                                                                       

These are all sad substitutes for the only thing that brings meaning, love, peace and joy to our lives.                                                                           

Of course true Christians know the only source for drinking pure water is the Holy Spirit which lives in us every day of our lives on this planet.                                                                                                             

So which water are you drinking?                                                              

Now here is the kicker: Do you notice this is aimed at Jehovahs people? This is not for those of the world but regarding those who call themselves Christians.                                                                                     

They have walked away from Jehovahs blessing to satisfy the lust of the world which they should know is filthy.                                                             

Have you been feeling that Jehovah is far from you, that there is no satisfaction in your walk with Christ?                                                          

Perhaps you need to go to Jehovah in prayer to convict you where you have strayed and the steps necessary to renew you love affair with Him.            

Prayer: Please  KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to Your loving voice and to be obedient unto it. In so doing I will be blessed with a never ending supply of Your life giving water every moment of every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the true living water Jesus Christ. Amen.

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