What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered Jesus Christ . Amen

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

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.

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.

Fight When Right

DO NOT BE AFRAID

Do you see an injustice? 

Than have confidence in God and stand up to them. 

I have many times. 

You know what; you might be surprised who will stand up with you. 

One time in a tree panting camp a foreman was treating rookies very bad. 

I stood up to him. 

This angered the camp supervisor and he arranged a little show down between his goons and me. 
I told them “You may beat me, but I will get back up, spit my blood in your face and kick your buts. When I am right I WILL FIGHT even unto my last breath.” 

I was prepared to receive a butt kicking. 

I heard a small voice saying: Don’t worry. I am sending you help.” I was expecting a legion of angels to come thundering out of the clouds. 

What I didn’t know was that when hearing this many of the other planters quietly moved behind me, a road crew repairing a damaged section of the Alaska Highway joined in. 

What started out as fifteen of them against me were now forty of them with me against fifteen of the camp supervisors goons. Now believe these boys were no angels. Ha ha but I believe God moved their hearts to step forward and risk an all out war. We would have all gotten fired as well. 

Needless to say the goons quickly backed down. I then TOLD the foreman and camp supervisor to get over here and apologize to these boys or I am coming over there and kick your butt. They had to humble themselves in front of the whole camp.

Later many people came over and mentioned how they admired that I stood up. My reply was that it is the duty of every Christian to stand up and fight for what is right. 

 “A man dies once, a coward dies many times.” Mexican proverb

And it is so true. Remember: it is our Christian duty to stand up and fight when we see an injustice. 

“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matt. 10:28 New International Version)

“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” Hebrews 4:12 (New American Standard Bible). 

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Nissi( the Lord is our banner, that means He goes out in front of us when we fight the right fight) I admit sometimes when I see an injustice I tremble in fear. Please give me a strong and courageous heart that has faith You will be right there with me, like David. A faith and ambition like Paul’s . In the name of the mighty warrior king Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

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

To Suffer Emotional Strain.

ESCAPE FROM HELL

Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. Psalm 37:1 New King James Version          

iniquity:       something that is unfair or evil                                                                                                                                envious:    feeling or showing a desire to have what someone else has                                                                                  fret : to cause To Suffer Emotional Strain Mirriam- Webster Dictionary

We who have lived long enough have all experienced fretting because someone is “getting away with it.” Many times it is because we see it on the news.

Why do you get upset?

As a Christian we are to believe God is a God of justice and He will make them pay, if not in this life than in the eternal one.

What is your reward for fretting?

It hurts your relationships and destroys your health (why do you think people have high blood pressure and ulcers?).

I know I did it after watching investigative TV programs.

Looking back there is a realization how futile and stupid this was. It did not change anything. Then a few years later you see it on the news where the perpetrators are caught, put in prison and are living a life of hell or are suffering from some disease that is lowly, painfully leading them to the grave and Hell where they belong.

 

Why in the world would you be envious of someone that is practicing iniquity?

 

You see someone cheating at school and they are getting away with it. No they are not.

 

When they go to get a job and take a test before getting hired the employer discovers they do not know squat and they do not get the job.

Someone is cheating on their spouse and having affairs. They will get sexually transmitted diseases and ruin their marriage. Does that sound like something you want?

The list goes on and on.

Oh for a little while they get away with it but it always catches up with them in the end.

 

Do not be deceived, what you do today you will pay for tomorrow.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Do not follow them on the pathway that leads to Hell but stay on the course Christ has laid before you which leads to Heaven.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Tsidkenu  (God of Righteousness) bless me with Your divine wisdom and strength to follow Your righteous path even when it seems as if the wicked are winning. I humbly ask this in the name of my most righteous King  Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Allow Me To

Do you have any of these?

Complaining is infectious

Complaining is infectious, contagious. Have you ever been around a negative Nellie? All she does is complain. Either it is too hot or too cold. We need rain or it is raining out. She can take the sails out of your cherry day in five minutes. Complaining changes your attitude. You become a very negative person. Usually it is manipulative theft. They complain about things in their life to get you to have pity on them. This gives them affection while they give you nothing in return.

I politely try to have a positive attitude with them. If they refuse to change their attitude I strongly but politely inform them their attitude is not welcome and if all they want to do is be negative go whine to someone else. Either their attitude changes or they avoid me.

Either way, problem solved.

Nagging is destructive

Nagging is destructive to relationships. If anything you do is never good enough you reach the point of not trying. Usually I just step back and ask them to show me a better way. Most times they shut up and leave me alone. They would rather nag than help reach a constructive solution. How many children have given up because of a nagging parent?

As a teacher I see it a lot. I always try to be positive and encouraging with far superior results

Doubting is destructive

Doubting is destructive not only to you but to everyone around you. How many times has a great plan everyone is hyped up to start crash and burn because one doubting Dave destroys it with his negativity.

How many times I have experienced people tell me if I tried something it would fail. People told me I would fail when I tried tree planting. After thirteen years I planted over a million trees all across Canada.

When I informed people I was going to bicycle from Canada to Mexico everybody laughed and told me I would fail. It took me three months to complete the trip. The list goes on and on

If you feel Jehovah is guiding you to do something do not listen to the doubting Daves. Go for it believing He will always provide you with the tools to succeed.

Wandering is humbling

Wandering is humbling because you usually take small baby steps away from the path Jesus has chosen for you to take in your service to Him. One day it will be like a exploding flash of lightening just how far you have wandered. The devil will laugh and tell you Jesus is angry with you and does not love you anymore. Do not believe that filthy liar. Jesus loves you and anxiously waits for you to return to Him. Such incredible love is very humbling.

Prayer: Oh wonderful Abba please do not allow me to spread infectious diseases, but rather I humbly give my life to you to guide to accomplish Your mission for my life. In Jesus’ wonderful name I ask Amen

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

That Is Not the Way It Is Supposed to Be

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you Matthew 5:23 New King James Version                                                                                                                             

Do you notice that Jesus mentions that if your brother has a grievance with you, you are to make your peace with him?                                                                                 

He does not say that if you have a grievance against your brother.                                     

Too many Christians believe that they must forgive their brothers when they do bad things to them before their offering can be acceptable to God.                                                         

So let us say a brother has cheated you out of a lot of money, do you seriously believe that God wants you to forgive him his dept to you if he has the means to repay you before your offering will be acceptable to God?                                                

To me that is a very dangerous and misguided theology.                                              

Prayer: Please Jehovah grant me the wisdom to discern how to handle a problem between a  brother or sister who is indebted to me but refuses to pay his obligations even though they have the means to do so. I sincerely beseech this request in the name of He who taught Nichodemous to repay those to whom he was indebted to Jesus Christ. Amen                                           

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