Your Personal Offering.

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

 Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a tree planter we would get paid by the tree. The more trees you planted the more money you made. Therefore, it was in our best interest to plant as many trees as possible. Most of the planters planted sloppy without care for their quality. I, however always took quality before quantity. At some time during the day I would rest under a tree in the nearby forest and survey the ground just planted. The thought came to me that because those trees were planted with superior quality most would survive. Because most would survive they would provide food, shelter, nests for young to be nurtured, take pollution out of the air and give us clean air in return, prevent soil erosion, help retain watersheds which supplied the rivers and streams the fish dwelled in. It always made me smile and think of nature as Gods Cathedral and I just completed a wonderful renovation on it. I got a reputation as having one of the best quality in the country. Whenever someone would ask me why quality was chosen over quantity it would be explained to them about caring for Gods Cathedral and if you are going to do it, do it right.

Children, no matter how much the world pressures you to cut corners to save the company money or get the assignment do quicker, always put your best effort in your work. It will be noticed and it will cause others to question why? That is a golden opportunity to share Christ.

If you are going to do it then  do it as you were doing it for Royalty. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) I humbly beseech You that You are always with me guiding my hands and mouth that they may excel in whatever You guide me to do so that it may bring honour unto You. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always excelled in His work for Your glory Jesus Christ. Amen

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

According to His Work

live-generously

“For God pays a man according to his work, And He will make every man find [appropriate] compensation according to his way. Job 34:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

According to His Work.

I do not know about you but that gives me a feeling of joy , peace, and assurance. Now in my later years and slowing down it is good to know Jehovah will reward me for my faithful service. There is no expectation of living in a mansion with babes waiting on my every whim. There is no expectation of living like a strong twenty something. There is no expectation of living surrounded by luxury gained at some mall. There is expectation of living a life dedicated unto Jehovah and sharing fond memories with Him. A life filled with peace, love and joy.

On the other hand I see so many wicked ones whose body has been destroyed living the sex, drugs and rock and roll nonsense. They lived for the good times and for themselves. Now the good times are over. They are a shell of a living being. I see those who worked very hard to attain wealth and took great delight in cheating others to enlarge their treasure only to see their treasure mean nothing to them because it cannot love them back.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for Your faithful promise to reward me for all my freely given service unto You. May You move the wicked ones unto turning from their dark deed unto Your righteous deeds so they will not suffer Your terrible wrath. I reverently request this in the name of He who will be handing out the drowns in Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Yield and Submit.

WE MUST LET GO

 “Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you. Job 22:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes the two. It takes the two parts in this verse before you are blessed.

Number one is to stop.

Stop being independent and stubborn. Jehovah cannot and will not ever attempt to help someone who refuses help. We must yield our will and wants and submit unto Him.

The next part is just as difficult.

To submit ourselves unto Jehovah means we are to give Him total control over our lives like a horse submits to the reins of its rider.

Once these two difficult tasks are completed then come the blessing. The blessing may be a physical blessing but there is always a spiritual blessing. The spiritual blessing of course is that there is a lot less stress in your life because you trust Jehovah has control of your life. The same can be said for worry. Instead your life is filled with peace, contentment and a knowledge of security knowing we have a superior being directing and helping us live a Divine life.

Leaving it in Jehovahs hands is the better choice. He knows what He is doing while we only think we know what we are doing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the privilege of being a humble servant of the most noble King. Please bless me to always have a submissive heart unto Your will in every aspect of my life. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in Your majestic name. Amen.

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

I Love to Have Intercourse with God.

i-love-you-my-lord

  As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Psalms 42 Holy Bible New International Version

Having intercourse means to enjoy a relationship with Him ( no not just sexual but in conversation as well. ).

Think of a marriage, if the couple only have intercourse in courting and then say :Well we had intercourse before marriage we do not require any more in our relationship. “ is that relationship not doomed? Think of how you were always calling , texting and desiring to spend time together in courtship. If there is none of that in the marriage that is not a marriage but a life sentence.

If a child says I had intercourse with you when I was born, I no longer require intercourse with you is that not abusive? What kind of family life is that?

So too it is with us.

We need daily intercourse with our Beloved if we desire for our relationship to grow. Just as a thirsty deer pants for cool life giving refreshing water so too are we to pant for Jehovahs sweet love in our daily lives. We must have a deep desire for a daily meeting with Him.

If you have no desire to enjoy and nurture a relationship with Christ , you are not a Christian. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the honoured privilege of sharing Divine intercourse with You. It is truly one of my most treasured gifts You have blessed me with. I humbly and joyously thank You in the name of my best friend with whom is always there to share treasured time with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am Vindicated.

DEVINE COVENANT

  And you shall know [with an understanding based on personal experience] that I am the Lord; For they shall not be put to shame who wait and hope expectantly for Me. Isaiah 49:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever experienced confirmation from Jehovah from a Bible Verse or from Christians councilors of a certain event that is going to occur in your life?

I have.

Everybody laughed at me and informed me it was certain failure to attempt to follow Christs lead. In all honesty when this first began I doubted myself the outcome. In due course of time Christ did indeed accomplish in me and through me His Divine purpose in my life and through my life.

Now when my Beloved informs me of an impossible occurrence that will happen in my life I have confidence in His providential completion of it. The wonderful thing though, is that He never does it in a predictable manner. I believe this is so no one can claim it is just a coincidence. I always laugh and say: “ You are truly an awesome God and Your ways are so much higher than mine my Love.” with reverential love and joy.

I believe Jehovah does the impossible in strange ways to remind us of just how awesome He truly is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for the amazing manner in which You have led and helped this sheep of Yours to accomplish incredible things for the glory of Your kingdom and the enlargement of it through those You have blessed me with guiding them unto You. I glorify You in You magnificent name. Amen.

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

Have You Ever Tired That?

a-praying-man

 Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12 Holy Bible, New King James Version.

There are two important equations in this text.

The first one is that Jesus went out to a quiet place to commune with Jehovah.

For me the best place to pray where there is deep personal conversation with my Beloved is in Jehovahs Cathedral ( nature). After all where can you not be closest to Him except in His creation where the trees, flowers and streams sing of His peace and beauty while the birds are singing praises unto Him. It fills me with peace and calm. Being relaxed with Him allows me to not only be more open and personal with Him but also where the hustle and bustle of the city does not drown out His voice speaking to me.

The next part is where Jesus prayed all night.

Have you ever tired that? I mean praying all night.

I have prayed for a couple of hours but all night, wow. The only time I can remember praying continually is during intense agony in my life. Then I prayed continually for a week. Throughout it all He gave me strength to endure it and comfort that He was there with me.

Of course we realize that this was the time of Christ’s time of agony before His torture and horrible death on the cross.

So whenever you are in a intense crisis perhaps then you will be able to pray not only all night but for days at a time like I did. Then you too will be strengthened and comforted during your intense time of tribulation.

Prayer: I immensely thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your patience in listening to the cries of anguish of a cherished child of Yours when we are enduring trials and tribulations. I thank you for Your Divine strength, peace and comfort that enabled me to not only endure them but to grow spiritually and mentally because of them. I exalt You in the name of He who sweated blood during His time of agonizing prayer Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.
