How Long Will

cannot-outrun

“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning (discerning: able to see and understand people, things, or situations clearly and intelligently Miriam- Webster Dictionary)?
How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,
How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge? Proverbs 1:22 Amplified Bible

Does this not sound like society today?

How many folks listen to politicians during a campaign and never question them?

Then when they get elected do what ever they want and get away with their lies.

How many folks believe what they hear the salesmen tell them without demanding they put it in writing and then end up being made a sucker out of?

When you try to speak of morals or integrity in someones life they mock you and try to drown out the truth by yelling at you. They hate you for telling the truth. They label you as intolerant and old fashioned. I see it and experience it almost every day.

Todays motto is :”Tell me what I want to hear, not what I need to hear.” Joseph- Anthony: Green

For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to support the errors they hold. 2 Timothy 4:3 Amplified Bible

Does that not just describe the “politically correct of today? When you reject Biblical truth you are calling Jehovah a liar and severely offending Him.

“Our society strives to avoid any possibility of offending anyone – except God.” Billy Graham

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and humbleness to always speak Your divine word of truth which is the torch that pierces light into a dark world. I humbly ask this in the name of He who is the light of the Heavenly world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Turn Away From God’s Love.

SATANS TRAP

 

Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them. Jonah 2:8 New International Version

 

Whatever you love more than Jehovah is an idol. Joseph- Anthony: Green

So, what is your idol?

Have you ever heard the saying: “People used to love people and use things. Now, they love things and use people.”

Is that not sad but oh so very true in todays society?

We used to care for our aged parents when they could no longer care for themselves. How many adult children just throw their parent into a seniors home and the only time the parent sees them is when they want money to support their extravagant lifestyle (which is their idol)? Being a volunteer at a seniors home I see this quiet regularly.

 

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless those adult children?

When a teacher in Asia the parents only wanted their children to study hard so they could get a good job. Of course when the children got the good job the parents expect them to support them in a lifestyle like kings and queens (which is their idol).

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless those parents?

It used to be friends enjoyed each others company and helped each other. Now, you are friends with each other as long as the other individual has something you want. When you no longer need it or cannot get it you drop them like a stone. If they need your help they are a stranger to you. What kind of friendship is that? Is that not making your ego an idol?

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless friends like that?

The current craze is the selfie stick. Where you take your own photo and plaster it all over social media. Is that not making yourself your own idol?

Do you seriously expect Jehovah blessings and love for someone who is obsessed with self love?

The other thing on social media is where they dress animals up like children and talk to them like children. They spend more time and money on their pet than they do Jehovah. Is that pet not an idol?

Do you expect Jehovahs blessing when you love and worship an animal more than you do Him?

Can you think of anything else that can be an idol?

The more you worship things the less you worship Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: please bless me Jehovah-Kanna  (The Lord is Jealous) to always be attentive to anything or anyone I place above You. I would never want to sacrifice our loving relationship with temporary things that can never compare with Your divine love. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who exalted You above all others Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

One Way Satan Deceives

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

What does Satan’s light look like?

Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 New International Version

What does Satan’s light look like?

One way Satan deceives Christians is with the gospel of prosperity.

Oh yes, you become a Christian and God becomes your servant giving you everything you want like a spoiled brat.

Becoming a servant of Christ (where you serve Him, not He serves you) is hard and encompasses a lot of sacrifice.

From my own personal experience and that of others being a Christian means a lot of suffering.

How many so called Christians run away at the first experience of hafting to chose Christ and suffer for it?

Are you ready to lose your friends because you refuse to go out and get drunk on the weekend and have one night stands or to use vulgar language?

Are you ready to lose your job because you refuse to cheat a client?

Are you ready to walk away from your family because they give you the choice between being a Christian or of being a member of your biological family?

Are you willing to leave the comforts of your home country to serve Christ in very primitive settings (no internet, no mobile phones, no MacDonald’s)?

I can say yes I have to each and every one of them.

A non suffering Christian is an oxymoron of words. The two do not belong together. Joseph- Anthony: Green

He can give you all your hearts desire so that you become lazy in your devotion to Christ.

“Give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal and so dishonor the name of my God.” Proverbs 30:8-9 New International Version

There was a time when I lived a very comfortable life. In that time the Bible was never read and there was no communion between God and me (except when I wanted something from Him). Oh, I did plenty of volunteer work but there was no relationship between God and me. That is not a blessing but a curse. You are so content with your life you spend no time with Christ. He can pretend to be an angel of light by being judgmental. He will bring up filth in your past and or condemn you when you fall into temptation.

When I first became a Christian I bragged that I could defeat Satan. He tempted me to have a beer. Being an alcoholic of course one beer led to another and me getting blotto. When I woke up surrounded by empty beer bottle Satan was right there to accuse me. “Look at you, how can you claim to be a Christian when you are nothing but a good for nothing drunk?” I felt deep shame, but thankfully repented to Jesus and then opened the Bible to this verse.

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free Romans. 8:1-2 New International Version

By the way, here is something for you self righteous to think about: When you are quick to point the finger accusingly at others, are you serving Christ, or are you serving Satan?

Do you drive people towards Christ or away from them?

He can pollute the law of grace. “Hey, Jesus died for your sins so it is okay to just go out and do what you want then say a few Hail Mary’s tomorrow.”

Do not ever abuse the precious painful sacrifice Christ made for you by believing you can willfully go out and commit any sin you want and Jesus will for give you.

Do you think you can go out and booze it up on Saturday night, them Go into Church, sing some songs, probably sleep last nights drunk off during the sermon and put the change from your pocket into the collection box and that is okay with Jesus? Do you think having an affair during the week, then pretending nothing happened on Sunday is okay with Jesus? Do you think Jesus understands of you cheated on that test last week is okay?

Unless you repent, you too will all perish. Luke 13:3 New International Version

Now repent not only means saying you are sorry, but also to STOP DOING IT!!!

He can be a twister.

He can twist Bible verses to say the exact opposite of what they mean. Just look at the above example.

Read about how he twisted the scripture to Jesus when he tempted Him in the desert.

That is why it is best to test what you believe is being said against other Christian teachers.

Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Proverbs 15:22New International Version

Prayer: Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit our Teacher) please open my eyes to Your truth and the wisdom to see through Satan’s destructive lies. I ask this in the name of He who saw through Satan’s wicked deception in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

The Big If.

GODS LOVE

If we ask anything according to God’s will, He hears and answers.1 John 5:14

 

Do you notice the important part of this promise?

The first part is IF.

If we ask in accordance to Gods will He will hear and answer our prayer.

In other words instead of asking for a new house or car we should be asking for opportunities to know Jehovah better and how to serve Him better. That is why so many prayers are unanswered.

Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Jehovah’s blessings or help.

But we must be willing to accept His answer and do it His way and not the way we want Him to answer us. After all, who is smarter: you or Jehovah?

Now what you are asking for may not be in your best interest so your request is denied.

For example: when I was a teenager I asked Jehovah to arrange it so this beautiful girl would be my girlfriend. He refused. As it turns out she was a mean, self centered hag from hell.

Boy was I glad He did not give me my wish.

Now that I am older I laugh at many of the silly self centered requests I made to Jehovah and now that I pray for His will to be done in my life the prayers are fulfilled.

Not my will be done but Thy will be done is to be the national anthem of a Christians prayers. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) please bless me with a heart and mind that is harmony with Your desires in both our relationship and in my life. I humbly request this in the name of He who taught us to pray that Your will be done Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Not Just Their Minds.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

For Jews request a , and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks  foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:22-24 New King James Version                                      

The reason people do not understand the Gospel message it two fold.   It is not just their minds but their hearts as well.                                        

With the Jews they were all about religious rites that earned Gods grace so the message of the cross was insanity to them.                                 

To the Greeks everything had to have a logical reason behind it. Christs sacrifice was illogical so it was foolishness to them.                                      

It is the same today If peoples hearts and minds are not open to receive the message it will be insanity and foolishness to them.

 Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) bless me with the peace to know I have tried to share Your message and it was rejected. It hurts when those I love mock me and persecute me because I am Your child It frustrates me when they refuse to accept Your divine message. I humbly request this in the name of He who was initially mocked and rejected by His earthly family Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You a Chaser?

HARD WORK

Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense Proverbs 12:11 New International Version

Do you spend money on winning the big on instead of using it to buy groceries?

Do you fall for what in my opinion are scams by investment companies with their get rich schemes?

Do you buy books on how to get rich quick?

The only ones I have ever seen get rich are the ones scamming gullible people out of their money. And today there are even more with the internet.

I am constantly amazed at how greedy people are, and really is that not why they fall for these scams?

 

I do not really know what to invest in as every time, (through no fault of my own, I was wiped out because of injuries and no money the investments had to be cashed in where as I was nailed with a lot of fees which took half my investment).

I have learned one thing though and that is when we walk the Christian walk Jehovah will always provide for us.

“The tragedy of life and of the world is not that men do not know God; the tragedy is that, knowing Him, they still insist on going their own way.” William Barclay

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God will provide) for promising and delivering on Your promise to always provide for Your beloved obedient child. I praise You in the name of He who provided food for the five thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                   

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