They Pay Because of You.

In Joshua 6 Jehovah strictly forbid the people from keeping anything after to conquest of Jericho.

In Joshua seven Achan did not obey and the command and took some and tried to hide it from everybody. When the Israelites went to battle against a smaller tribe they were trounced because of Achans disobedience.

How about you?

Are others suffering because you are disobeying Gods commands?

SINFUL DESIRE

Is your family or marriage suffering because you are flagrantly having an affair? Could it be that your company loses a contract and people lose their jobs because you cheat a company you do business with?

Could a sports team you play on be disqualified because you are using illegal drugs?

When I was a tree planter one jerk buried all his trees instead of planting them. When the company we were contracted out to found out what he did, we were all fired and lost and entire seasons wages. Considering tree planting is one of the hardest jobs in Canada and the season is only so long and we worked and suffered so much for those wages we were less than happy with him and he had to have the police escort him out of town for his own safety.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our deliverer) rescue me from the temptation in any way to be dishonest. The consequences although unforeseen now will have dire results for myself and many innocent victims because of my greed. I sincerely request this in the name of He who resisted the evil ones sly ploys to prevent Him from His faithful calling Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Will Not be Blessed

An inheritance claimed too soon will not be blessed at the end. Proverbs 20:21 New International Version

It is very common today for children to want their inheritance be given to them even though their parents are still alive. It is because they have foolishly gone in debt over their heads and expect their parents to pay for their extravagant lifestyle and bail them out.

POVERTY

That is like saying you wish your parents were dead.

That is a cursed thing in the eyes of Jehovah.

The children who do attain their inheritance do not curtail their unwise lifestyle but continue on falsely believing mommy and daddy will be there to bail them out again.

When mommy and daddy die and there is no money left in their inheritance to support their luxurious lifestyle and they lose everything. I can see great suffering coming soon to todays youth.

When the well runs dry oh how terrible the consequences will be for those living off of others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Naheh (the Lord who Smites) convict the wicked, selfish, self centered ones and move them to repent. Teach them to show proper respect and give loving care to their aged parents. Speak into the hearts of the parents to appreciate the loving care and sacrifice their children are giving towards them. I humbly ask this in the name of the son who cared for His mother while suffering an agonizing death Jesus Christ. Amen

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

God has Prepared.

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 New King James Version                                                     

 There was a TV ad that talked about the life we prepare for ourselves when we are young, through our adult years and our happily ever after retirement.                                                                                                        

It brought about a huge chuckle from me.                                                       

Everything I dreamed of in my life when I was young never came true. On the flip of the coin there were so many things I swore I would never do that I have done in my life.

Most times it took traumatic events to force me where Jehovah wanted me to go and my mantra was: “Lord why are you doing this to me, I do not want to go there?”                                                                          

Once there He guided me to what He the service prepared for me to do for Him and the remolding of this lumpy clay.                                                                                    

In retrospect when looking back it is possible to see Jehovah wanted me to go there and do those things so not only would I serve Him there but He was molding me and getting me prepared for the next step He has prepared for me to serve Him and for Him to continue His molding of me. (which I always whined about and fought because I did not want to go there).

After thirty years of this it amazes me what my Beloved has done in my life and through my life.

He is still molding me and although I do not know the next service unto Him that He has prepared for me is I am confident in His guidance. During this process I know it will bring me ever closer unto Him in love, respect and admiration.             

                                                                      WE MUST LET GO                                                                                           

A Christian does not make plans for their lives but follows where Christ leads them. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        It does not matter if you are young or old, strong or handicapped, rich or poor there is a wonderful destiny Jehovah has prepared for you when you surrender your will to His.

It does not matter if you are young or old, you can always be of service unto Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The service He has prepared for you may be big or small but it is all important unto Him and He has a special job waiting just for you.

 

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”  Helen Keller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with a Devine career that You have made for this humble child to serve You with loving devotion. I praise You in the name of He who served you all the way to a horribly excruciatingly painful death on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There is Nothing Concealed.

TRUST IN HIM

 

So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. Matthew 10:26 New International Version

Since becoming close with Christ I have noticed a familiar pattern pattern emerge in my social contacts in every aspect of my life.    There have been so many times wicked individuals have, unbeknownst to me, laid traps for me, sometimes by themselves, others in groups.

Being naive and gullible as I am I was  always an easy mark for the wicked schemers and con artists.

However, the result was always the same.

 

The trap they laid for me I escaped from and they always fell into their own wicked traps. They were stunned and enraged at me. Many times they pretentiously fake innocence. They slowly learned not to attempt such foolish endeavors again. As well, they avoid me like the plague because they cannot get away with their scams. They are so dishonest they cannot function in any other way in their lives but to lie, connive, deceive and or manipulate others.

When you hear of the wicked and powerful thinking up ways to ensnare you, do not be afraid of them but have faith in the wisest most powerful protector of them all , Jehovah God. He continually will arrange circumstances so that you walk away looking righteous while others laugh at the wicked fools as they end up covered with protectorthier own dung heaped upon their faces.

 

I have experienced this at school, work, with family and in relationships. It covers all aspects of our social life, school life and work life.

 

The wicked think they are so smart as they lay traps for the righteous but God in Heaven laughs at them as He guide the righteous around the traps and the wicked fall into their own traps. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

When you have a respectful, loving relationship with Christ He will protect you from such scam artists if you are obedient unto His heeding. This has been oh so true in my walk with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah (The Lord Saves) for rescuing me from the evil plots the wicked arrogantly lay before me to trap me. I joyfully thank you in the name of He who outwitted the Pharisee’s when they tried to outwit Him 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.

That is a Curse

CHILDS DEEDS

He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him. Leviticus 20: 9 New King James Version

To curse your mother and or father does not necessarily mean to swear at them. It also includes your behaviour and attitude.

 

Many times in todays society we see young people go deeply in dept unnecessarily to satisfy their greed (which of course they never can or will). They expect their parents to give up their retirement savings or to mortgage their house to pay for their selfish desires. They have no concern how much their parents are suffering because of thier selfishness.

That is a curse unto Jehovah.

Many times seniors can no longer live alone in their house because of health reasons. Instead of helping them the children shove them into seniors homes and forget about them (unless they want money). That is selfish, cruel and disrespectful. Now sometimes the parents are difficult or they have health problems which makes it expedient to place them in a seniors home.

 

That is a curse unto Jehovah.

Many times the children use the grandchildren to blackmail the grandparents. So if you do not give me money we will not let you see the grandchildren any more. That is cruel selfish and disrespectful.

That is a curse unto Jehovah.

Many young people are too lazy to get a job (not all of you but a great many do) and expect to freeload off of their parents. Eventually you will have to grow up and stand on your own two feet and the longer you leech off of your parents the harder it will be for you.

I know some people who never left home and when their parents died they were in their forties. The good life was over and they were completely unprepared for it. With in a year they were homeless because they did nt know how to care for themselves.

That is a curse unto Jehovah.

For these things you will be held accountable for and the judgment will be severe.

Love is an action not an emotion. Do not tell me you love me, show me you love me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

What you do to your parents today, your children will do to you tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for the opportunity to exhibit my love and honour towards both You and my mother by being her care giver in her twilight years. I thank you in the name of He who showed His divine love for His mother even on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                             

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

Why the Wise Men Gave

HELP THE WEAK

When they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:10 New King James Version   Have you ever wondered why the wise men gave to Jesus’ family the gifts they gave?

 

Do not forget that Jesus’ parents were so poor they could not even afford at bus ticket to get across town in todays world.

An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.” Matthew 2:13 New King James Version

Now if Jesus’ parents were so poor how could they afford to travel and live in Egypt during Herods blood thirst?

They could sell the gifts for a lot of money which would afford them the travel expenses and living expenses while in Egypt and their return to Israel. As well, the money would be used to buy a house and set up a business.

Now if you are in dire straits and someone gives you a gift you can sell to pay for needed expenses do not be ashamed to sell them.

On the other side of the coin if you give someone a gift and they sell it for necessary expenses do not be angry with them.  Instead, be glad that the gift you so generously provided for them was enough to cover unexpected expenses.

The only thing that is certain in our daily circumstances is that they are always uncertain. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Notice I said for “necessary expenses”.

So, if you have no money to pay for unexpected medical expenses and do not have it or if you are suddenly without a job and cannot pay your expenses then it is okay to sell the gift to help yourself.

If you want to cash the gift in just to get a tattoo or the newest video game that is not necessary and is an insult, disrespectful and rude.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hoshe’ah (The Lord Saves) for blessing me with bringing those to me with gifts that were used in order to help me through disasters. May I always worship the true gift giver and not the gift. I praise You in the name of the only gift worthy of being worshipped Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                                    

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