There is No Fear

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love]. 1 John 4:18 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I believe that John was referring to repentant Christians in this passage.

Those who do not belong to Christ and unrepentant Christians have every right to fear Jehovahs punishment.

Hell is real, it is not pleasant and is for an eternity. There is no plea bargaining before Jehovah nor parole. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand, there is no need for a repentant Christian to worry about Jehovahs wrath. Christ has paid for our ransom and repentance is the second key.

Yes, Jesus’ blood has paid the price for our sins but if we continue in them that sacrifice is made null and void.

When we love Jehovah we desire to please Him and that means living a righteous life.

No one lives without sin. If that was possible Christ would not have made His horrifying sacrifice.

However when we sin and come before Jehovah with a sincere heart that is remorseful for what we have done and pray for the Holy Spirits power to be in us to overcome this weakness not only will our sins be forgiven but the Holy Spirit will bless us to conquer our habitual sins which are too strong for us to defeat on our own.

I know, there were many strong habitual sinful habits that I tried to conquer on my own only to crash and burn. When they were surrendered to the Holy Spirit He INSTANTLY forever destroyed them.

Now sometimes we must work in conjunction with the Holy Spirit by say getting into good Christian counseling to deal with the underlying reasons for the weakness (so sometimes someone abuses alcohol and or drugs to kill the pain of something tragic and painful earlier in our lives that they have not dealt with).

Again, I know of that of which I speak because I was blessed with Godly Christian councilors that took a year of counseling to deal with those issues. Many others it takes two or three years.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for Your cherished gift of sanctification (sanctify: to purify or free from sin) through Your holy blood when we repent of our weakness (sin) and thank you through the gift of the Holy Spirits ultimate power of forever smashing the destructive addictions in my life. I am eternally grateful in Your wonderful name. Amen.

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

Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands.

WAIT UPON GOD

 Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. And he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. So he looked this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. And when he went out the second day, behold, two Hebrew men were fighting, and he said to the one who did the wrong, “Why are you striking your companion?” Then he said, “Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you intend to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?” So Moses feared and said, “Surely this thing is known!” When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian; and he sat down by a well. Exodus 2:11-15 Holy Bible  New King James Version

Taking matters into your own hands leads to disaster. Depending upon Jehovah leads to success. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Revenge is where you want to hurt somebody worse for doing you wrong. Then they get some family and friends and get you back worse. After that you get some of your family and friends and extract even worse revenge on the perpetrators.

That is how wars start.

Even today in many parts of the world there are groups that hate each other because of something that was done centuries or even eons ago.

When I was tree planting and we had some Africans working with us we could not have certain groups in the same camp. If they were they would try to kill each other on site with axes, shovels and what ever they could get their hands on. It is insanity at its worst.

In the United States the Hatfields and Macoys was a real event that lasted about a hundred years. In Canada we had the Black Donlleys which ended in a bloody massacre.

 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for God’s wrath [and His judicial righteousness]; for it is written [in Scripture], “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The Christian is to pray for the perpetrators to be moved unto repentance and have faith that if they persist in their evil, wicked ways Jehovah will punish them appropriately.

I have witnessed Jehovahs vengeance against those who wronged my and I can assure you it is a terrifying site to see.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for being the wisest and fairest Judge of them all and for vindicating me in You time and in Your way. Please bring all those who have unfairly persecuted me to a repentant heart so as to avoid Your terrible judgment. I humbly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge on the day of judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Jehovah loves us.

He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. Hebrews 9:26 New King James Version

Because Jehovah is perfect and we are not we cannot come into His presence.

Think of a filthy beggar.

Would you bring him into Buckingham Palace to have a meal with the queen?

If that would not happen with the queen, how much more with us and God?

It is only through the sacrifice of a perfect offering in our place that we can be washed clean enough to come to Him.

That is why Jesus had to die.

We need to accept that we are sinners and the only way to God is through Jesus’ blood, that we repent and accept Jesus as the only way to God.

CHRIST'S LOVE

When we do that the Holy Spirit will teach us how to have a loving relationship with them and then will we obedient children of God and servants of our King Christ and our teacher the Holy Spirit.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for the truly most amazing display of love there ever has been in Your suffering and death on the cross so that I am blessed with the most awesome relationship there ever was, is or could be. That being the one I am bestowed with, with our Father, our King and our Teacher. I humbly in great adoration thank you in the most deepest part of my heart. Amen.

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

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They were but Flesh.

For He remembered that they were but flesh. Psalm 78:39 New King James Version

Being of the flesh means we all have weaknesses and weak moments.

Occasionally we all give in to sinful desires. Come on now, have we not all bought something we could not afford and then regretted it later? Or how about the times when the mouth is in action before the brain is in gear and we say something we regret later?

Some call it human weakness.

As well we all have our weaknesses built into us from heredity, it is in our genes. So in some families alcoholism is heredity (which is why it is important to know your family roots and to teach them to your children).

Let Your tender mercies come to me, that I may live. Psalm 119:77 New King James Version

Do not allow the devil to deceive you into believing that when you sin Jehovah is mad at you and He rejects you and you lose your salvation. Do not allow the devil to con you into believing the lies that you must perform some act to be forgiven (like in the catholic church with their praying to beads or saying hail Maries).

You need to approach our loving Father in Heaven confess what you did, admit it was wrong and ask for forgiveness. Do it in the name of Jesus whose sacrificial blood has cleansed you of your sins when you repent.

 

Repent means to admit what you did. Admit it was wrong. And, when applicable make amends for the damage your sin has caused others.

If in your sin you have wronged someone you need to repeat this process with them.

 

A benefit of this is a healing in your spirit that washes away a guilt conscience. You will not have ulcers nor problems with sleep.

Repentance is as good for you as it is to the offended. Joseph- Anthony: Green

You do not need a physiatrist to tell you this. You need Jesus. You do not need to give your guilt to a physiatrist (and how many of them give you pills instead of dealing with the real issues?).

OBEDIANCE

 

You need to make it right with Jehovah.  Do not give excuses (the satanic ritual practiced by the world of not my fault it is societies fault or my parents fault or any one else’s fault. You are the one that committed the sin, you are responsible for it.) so just fess up and apologize for your sin. Make amends where it is appropriate. The offended soul may not forgive you but your conscience is clear before Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with forgiveness for my sins when I am weak and surrender to them and then sincerely repent of them. I exalt You in the name of he whose precious blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Should You Not Forgive Them?

In Exodus it was Aaron who made the golden calf to please the people. So He went against God but repented.             In Numbers he was also still the chosen one by God.

FORGIVE FOR THE HEART

Is this any different from our leaders?

We all make mistakes, especially when we are first starting out.

When our leaders make mistakes and repent, should we not forgive them and still accept them as our leaders? After all, what right do you have to expect God to forgive you when you mess up and repent if you refuse to forgive others?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God of grace) bless me with a graceful forgiving heart to any and all who repent of their offences against me just as You so nobly forgive this child of Yours when I sincerely repent of my offences against You. I unpretentiously beseech You in the name of he who paid such a high price for this wonderful privilege Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Can’t, He Can

To him who is able to keep you from stumbling. Jude 24 New King James Version                                                                                                    

We all have them.                                                                                                

We have inherited them from our parents.                                                        

Sinful disposition traits are handed down from one generation to the next. This is why it is important to trace your ancestors. Doing so helps you understand why you are the way you are.                                                       

So if say you have relatives in your family tree that were alcoholics you would know it to be very wise to abstain from drinking.                                      

As well it is also of extreme importance to pass this knowledge onto your children to help them avoid much grief and destruction in their lives.                                                                                                                    

Now there are some bad traits that try as we may we can never conquer them.                                                                                                                    

So say you are short tempered it does not matter how hard you try to control your temper you will always be short tempered.                               

All is not lost however.                                                                                     

We are blessed with the gift of the power of the Holy Spirit when we accept Christ as our savior and surrender these weaknesses to Him in complete faith that He shall conquer them.

                                                                      DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD                                                         

As well He will bless you with knowledge of what triggers your temper to go off and the necessary steps to avoid these ruinous situations. There will come occasions when you cannot escape them. Then it is time to run to the safety of the Holy Spirit. Call upon Him quickly with complete faith He shall deliver you and He will.                                                    

I speak from personal experience on both of these weaknesses.                   

There were inherited weaknesses that were destroying my life that I had no power over. It was only when I completely surrendered them to Christ that I was saved. 

There are ruinous dispositions that require daily prayer to prevent me from disastrous situation that the Holy Spirit either prevent from occurring or guided me through them when they do occur.                      

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your Devine strength to eternally conquer the fleshly weaknesses in my life that was spiritually destroying me and making my life a living Hell. Thank you for blessing me with wisdom and strength on how to keep them at bay. I exalt You in the name of Your strong Son my Beloved Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

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