He also Brought Me Up.

CHRISTS POWER

He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. Psalm 40:2

mire a troublesome or intractable situation, heavy often deep mud or slush Merriam Webster dictionary

When I was a tree planter and we worked in deep mud it clung to our boots and made walking extremely labourous and difficult. Clay clings to you when wet and hardens like cement when it dries out.

What situation are you in that is clinging to you and dragging you into exhaustion, frustration and desperation? Is it a habit that is destroying your life?

You do not need self help groups or satanic politically correct filth that teaches that if you work real hard you will conquer whatever problem you have in your life.

You need the power of the Holy Spirit which Jehovah abundantly blesses us with when we surrender it unto Him. Now it may happen instantaneously or it may take a while.

When I surrendered the destructive addiction of alcoholism to Jehovah the Holy Spirit instantly crushed it and expelled it from me. When I decided to quit smoking it was a daily battle (at the time of this writing it has been two months and the struggle is still continuing). Some times I gave in and had a smoke but the determination is there to destroy this filthy habit. I know it cannot be done by my own will power but by working with the Holy Spirit we will eventually eternally eliminate it from my body.

For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again. Proverbs 24:16 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Either way, the Lord will bless you with firm footing to not only destroy the wicked destructive habit but He will bless you with a new firm path that leads you to a deeper love and appreciation for Him. When that happens and you encounter someone else trying to battle a destructive habit it is your duty to give testimony of how Jehovah freed you from your slavery and encourage them lovingly.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with delivering me from destructive habits that were too strong for me to conquer on my own by Your mighty power. I exalt Thee in the name of He who is the name we call upon to rescue us from all devastating weaknesses Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

To Find True Rest.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go to find rest in this face paced shallow world.

To find true rest from anxieties of finances I go to Jehovah and He guides me to the comforting and best financial advice there is in the Bible (number one is to never go in debt. Save for it and be patient).

When the stress of relationships weighs me down like a rock around my ankles and thrown into the sea I go to Jehovah and He guides me to verses in the Bible on how to handle difficult relationships (many times the advice is difficult to follow but will lead to a lot less stress, fights and bitterness in life. I know His advice has improved my relationship peace tremendously by teaching me how to avoid or handle the ones who suck the life out of you).

When I encounter health problems I go to Jehovah and He guides me to Bible verses that teach me proper diet and exercise (both mentally and physically). I know when it is time for me to depart from this world I will go to Jehovah and He will guide me to Bible verses that comfort and reassure me He is waiting to guide me home upon my departure from this world.

Where do I go to find Divine rest while enjoying heavenly communion with my Beloved Father?

Why, in Gods Cathedral of course.

And where is this amazing Cathedral?

Any place in nature.

My preferred places are in an isolated beach, my a quiet gentle little rapids or in a forest or laying under the summer stars.

It is when I am in the beauty of His creation that the weight of the world disintegrates to be replaced with Gods amazing peace and love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the amazing privilege of communing with You in Your awesome creation. Thank You my love for the comfort, strength, wisdom, healing, peace and encouragement that You bless me with when I pour out my aching heart into Thy loving arms. I deeply thank you my Love in the name of my Heavenly Healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You can Endure It.

flowers caressing blazing red cross

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible, New King James Version

We all have addictions, that is why we need the power of Christ within us to be victorious over them. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We are all addicted to something and many have more that one so please do not behave as if you are the only one suffering from yours. The Bible confirms it with- No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. Those of us who are Christians have the greatest power to conquer them in the power of the Holy Spirit. Now He may heal you instantly like He did my alcoholism or He may guide you to resources to help you conquer it like He did my smoking addiction but He will always be faithful to guide you to the road to recovery.

Do you believe that God is near? He wants you to. He wants you to know that He is in the midst of your world. Wherever you are as you read these words, He is present.–Max Lucado

The temptation will never leave you for good. Sometimes it will be subtle and sometimes it will be strong to return to your addiction but the Holy Spirit will always bless you with knowledge and strength to defeat the devils snare.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Prayer: For the addicted:Oh please merciful Father in Heaven bless me with the Holy Spirits presence in my life to conquer this addiction. I know that it is too strong for me but that nothing is too strong for you. Please guide me to the resources needed to help me with this problem and the strength to be obedient unto your leading.

For the recovered addict: Thank you oh my amazing Father for smashing the chains of my addiction. Please help me to continue to walk in this freedom and bless me with Your powerful strength and wisdom to defeat the wicked one when he comes a knocking. I humbly request this and thank you in the name of He who has forever conquered all demons of addiction Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

This is What They Need.

HOPE IN THE LORD

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. Psalm 56:3 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Recently the news has been broadcasting about an epidemic of depression and suicide. The secular world is lost for answers to this plague. All your marches will produce nothing. All your government speeches sound pretty but are empty of results.

When I am afraid I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I am depressed (and we all get depressed from time to time) I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I become angry because of an injustice perpetrated against me I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I become lonely I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I question why I am here I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

The Holy Bible is truly the only guidebook to life we will ever need along with prayer. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Our greatest comfort in sorrow is to know that God is in control. Lynn Thornton

As Christians it is our duty to guide those in the secular world to the Guidebook to life. This is what they need in the secular world but so strongly rejects. Woe is unto them, they have no hope.

We do not understand the intricate pattern of the stars in their courses, but we know that He who created them does, and that just as surely as He guides them, He is charting a safe course for us. Billy Graham

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for always being there to help me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. If it were not for You my love I would have crashed and burned so many times in my life. I laud You in the name of the greatest whose precious blood made it possible for You to send the most wonderful Helper (the Holy Spirit) Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovah bless you today and every day with His precious love, joy and peace.

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.

It Still Happens Today

They will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” Mark16:18 New International Version

Some modern day preachers teach that faith healing was done as a sign that the apostles were chosen by God.

I strongly disagree.

Just read Andrew Murray’s book Devine Healing.

Speaking from personal experience there was one time when I was doing volunteer work in a hospital and a very sick woman in a lot of pain was brought it. Feeling compassion for her I knelt at the side of her stretcher took her hand in mine and prayed for her. Her sickness left her and entered into me and caused me to violently vomit.

It was scary.

My Sensei’s (teacher in Japanese) who were teaching me Shiatsu, that were not Christian explained it to me in a Christian way. The sickness leaves their body and enters into ours which is why the Bible teaches us the importance of fasting before the laying on of hands. Then the Holy Spirit removes that illness from us.

It may sound corny and unbelievable but that is exactly what has occurred to me numerous times.

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

That is why the Bible teaches that we must fast before we lay hands on people.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for the amazing privilege of bringing glory to You and helping to bring others to You through the spontaneous act of divine healing. I praise You in the name of the ultimate physical and spiritual healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Attacks Will be on You

“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 ) King James Version
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). King James Version
I don’t know about you, but my worst tribulations came from those who were close to me before coming to Christ. They were the ones that constantly inflicted the most anguish and pain on me. So much so I had to move thousands of miles away from them. The pain I bore was almost unbearable and intense.
About a year later again someone close to me that was an unbeliever caused a lot of grief and tribulation in my life. That time it was not as severe though as I had the knowledge from the previous one and knew Jesus was with me every step of the way.
The closer you get to God, the more the attacks are going to be on you and the more severe they will be. Satan knows your weak points and that is where he will unmercifully attack you to destroy you.
Do not be afraid though. For we have the greatest champion in our corner who makes the devil scurry away like a freighted rat when a light is shone on them. His mighty name is JESUS CHRIST. He defeated satan on the cross and will defeat Him every time he attempts to destroy you.

CHRIST DEFEATS DEMONS

Oh for sure you will suffer. But, in the end that will make you stronger so you can withstand the vile wicked one when the next attack comes.

Do not get cocky though and believe you can take the devil on yourself. That is the sure fire way to humiliating defeat.

Instead know that when you are tortured or tempted to the breaking point that is when Jesus comes charging in like a raging fierce warrior to your rescue.

These attacks will occur throughout your entire life until you are called to your magnificent home in Heaven. Then you will realize all those battles were worth it.

Prayer: Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) thank you for coming to my rescue during the intense battles between satan and me. I know he is smarter than me and stronger. But, you are the smartest and strongest. You have promised to save me in my hour of need and I believe you always keep your word. In the name of our
great protector Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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