It is We Not Me.

christs-family

 Then I said to them, “You see the bad situation that we are in—how Jerusalem is desolate and lies in ruins and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, and let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we will no longer be a disgrace.” Nehemiah 2:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is we not me.

Those that stand alone fall, those that stand together will with stand the strongest storms. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is an important ingredient on your road to recovery. We all have destructive addictions. We cannot resolve them on our own, we need help. Therefore, it is we as in Jehovah and you not me that will provide the resolution.

How many of us make silly New Years Resolutions to quit these habits only to crash and burn when they try to accomplish it on their own?

How many succeed when they have councilors and trainers helping them?

The way to determine who is the best trainer and or councilor for you is to take it to Jehovah in prayer and be obedient unto His wise guidance. After all, who know you better the creator or the creation?

We will always fail in our attempts to live a Holy life because we are all imperfect.

Satan will use this opportunity to tear you down in an attempt to make you feel unworthy of being a member of Jehovah’s Holy family.

All is not lost.

Christ will never desert you. He will provide a way of restitution unto Him.

That , again , is why we need to surround ourselves with Godly councilors when we fall. They will not only help us deal with the reason for the fall but also help us to stand upon the Holy rock of Christ.

The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill [to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth]. Proverbs 1:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with wise councilors and trainers for my daily walk with You. They lead me away from catastrophes and towards Heavenly success towards my loving relationship with You and the Divine service unto You that You have chosen for me to take in my life dedicated unto You. I exalt You for this treasure in the name of the greatest provider Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Will Never Understand It.

God loves each of

 For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. Ephesians 2:8-9 Holy Bible , Amplified Version.

We will never understand it. How Jehovah in His amazing love allowed His most cherished Son to be humiliated, beaten, tortured, mocked and allowed to die an agonizing death and be cast into hell for three days because of His awesome love for us.

Most of us were less than holy when He graciously came to us, indeed many of us were downright scoundrels.

Scoundrels make the best saints because they realize the magnificence of Jehovahs love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

In the world you have to earn it if you want it (except of course in “liberal” societies were the bums expect the government to do everything for them because of the “you owe me” attitude which is destroying some many societies in the world today). Yet Jehovah, in His miraculous love, came unto us with such an fabulous offer that we would be insane to refuse.

This, of course, is not just salvation but also an astounding love affair of which is impossible to match anywhere else. As we progress in this relationship he slowly burns off the dross (sometimes he expels destructive addictions and behaviour on His own and some times He walks through it with it with us) to mold us into a truly new creation. Those that formerly new us are stunned and confused about the change. Of course this process will continue until we reach our heavenly home. As a result our love, respect and admiration for Him is constantly expanding.

“I do not understand the mystery of grace; only that it meets us where we are and doesn’t leave us where it found us.” Anne Lamott

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the most wonderful blessing of Your magnificent gift of grace unto a undeserving child such as I. Oh a great big thank you for your incredible transformation of a filthy little rag a bound into a beautiful child of Yours through a slow but steady hand of the Heavenly Molder. I exalt You in the name of he whose stunning gift of His cherished blood made all this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Have My Joy Fulfilled

joy-and-peace

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others],joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Galatians 5:22 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I do not believe I have ever seen so many depressed and spiritually empty souls as there is today.

That is because they are happiness junkies. They are constantly seeking out physical stimuli to fill there desire for a few fleeting moments of happiness. You see these thrill junkies when they are having fun but have you seen them when they are not feeding their addiction to an adrenaline rush? The same is said for the fashion freaks with each new style or sports freaks with their teams or the list goes on. Just like a drug junkie when they do not have their fix they are irritable and depressed.

Happiness is physical and fleeting. Joy is spiritual and ever lasting. I choose joy. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now, although we are a minority, I am and have seen Jesus junkies. We are the type that constantly needs a fix of Jesus’ Holy love, peace and joy. Of course, the only way to obtain this unending supply of these cherished gifts is to nourish an obedient loving relationship with Him. We do not require outside stimuli to get our fix because when we dwell with Christ it is in our Holy DNA every moment of every day.

“The Bible talks plentifully about joy, but it nowhere talks about a “happy Christian.” Happiness depends on what happens; joy does not. Remember, Jesus Christ had joy, and He prays “that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.”” — Oswald Chambers

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your amazing love and joy that You abundantly shine Your divine light into my heart each and every day. I am eternally grateful for this cherished blessing in the name of the light of my life Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Love to Watch Their Reaction.

God loves each of

 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God Romans 8:16 New King James Version Bible

Sometimes during a conversation I like to slip in that I am a son of God.

The look of shock and indignation on their faces is hilarious. I love to watch their reaction (especially amongst Christians). Every time they mistakenly believe that I am calling myself Jesus Christ. Then I recite this verse and even then many still do not believe that I am a son of God.

It does not mean we are equal to Christ but are part of His divine family. Even then many believe I am crazy and should either be locked up or stoned.

Why is it that so many “Christians call themselves “Christians” but do not believe they are an eternal member of a Holy family(if they are Christians in thought word and deed and not name only)?

That does not permit us license to lord it over others but instead to humbly, meekly and graciously share with them the our experiences of Divine love, joy, peace and purpose in a way that they will desire to join this exclusive family.

It also gets the Sunday Christians thinking about their place in the Heavenly family. How are you doing with your conversations about the benefits of being a member of this exclusive family?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father)for the most treasured blessing in my life,your graciousness in adopting me into Your Holy family and for the opportunities of sharing this amazing love affair with others so that they may develop a deep desire to know You and be adopted in this same Holy family. I exalt You in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Breakdown of Society.

descrection

 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 Holy Bible, New King James Version

I believe that when you break down the family, you break down society. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now that does not mean you are to remain in an abusive relationship.

“Train your child in the way in which you know you should have gone yourself.” Charles H. Spurgeon

How many times have we reflected on our past and wish we could change it?

When you are a parent you can pass these mistakes as well as your triumphs onto your children to help guide them through life.

“The tasks connected with the home are the fundamental tasks of humanity.” Theodore Roosevelt

For those of us that are old enough to remember do you remember those that in my opinion are destroyer of the family the  (womens lib) spewing on how they were on a biological clock and wanted to get pregnant ? Because they relegated men to the trash can they wanted to get pregnant by artificial insemination because they said they did not need a father in the family. Look at the results. Could it be boys raised by feminists are confused as how to be a man because there were none in their family life? Could that be why so many males today are so feminine?

In many Asian countries the mother raises the children and could that by why there is so much homosexuality there and the men are so feminine there?

“There is only one way to bring up a child in the way he should go and that is to travel that way yourself.” Abraham Lincoln

We need to walk with our children through life not shove them off to babysitters like sports teams or other extra curricular activities. We need to spend time with them not just having fun but teaching them life lessons. Other wise, when they leave the nest they will be completely unprepared for the world out there.

The most important duty of every parent and grandparent is to teach them about Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To help them become adopted members of a Holy Family.

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless those who were raised fatherless to be introduced unto You so that will be blessed to know what a father is. This blessing they will in turn teach their children and may it restore Godly families to our society which so desperately needs it. I humbly request this in the name of my adored bib brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

No Hide and Seek.

PAPPAS CHILDREN

 I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. Proverbs 8:17 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Think about your most loving relationship whether it is with your wife or husband, whether it is with your children, or whoever.

How much time do you spend with them?

How much time do you spend sharing a conversation with them?

How much do you enjoy doing things for them to make them happy because you love them?

Now think if you were separated from each other with no contact for tens years and met again. Think of how much you have changed so that you do not even know each other any more.

Now think about how much time you spend with Jehovah, how much time you spend in conversation with Him, how much you enjoy doing things for Him to make them happy because you love Him. Is your relationship with Him warm and loving or cold and dead? Whose fault is that?

It is not whether Jehovah is far from you but rather whether you are far from Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The more you read your Bible the more Jehovah reveals Himself to us and the only way we can share a magnificent loving relationship with Him.

“A knowledge of the Bible is essential to a rich and meaningful life.” Billy Graham

Prayer is enjoying an open, honest sincere talk with your best friend, most special lover and wisest teacher. Relax in His presence. Listen and obey what He says to you because He only wants what is best for the child He so deeply loves. Joseph- Anthony: Green

How much time do you spend just talking with Jehovah and listening to Him, not just whining for Him to give you things like a spoiled brat but talking with your best and most intimate friend? Reading our Bible every day and talking with our most intimate friend is the core essential to enjoying a close loving relationship with Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our loving Heavenly Father) for blessing me with the most amazing loving relation there could ever be. I praise You in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Joy to the Heart.

The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. Psalm 19:8 New International Version

Precepts: a rule that says how people should behave Merriam Webster Dictionary

Radiant: having or showing an attractive quality of happiness, love, health, etc.  Merriam Webster Dictionary

The laws of Jehovah are right and they bring joy to our hearts when we are obedient unto them. This is because there is no doubt or guilt about our actions. He guides us in our interactions with others. This is all encompassing including our families, classmates, co-workers and everybody else in society. When we ask for Divine action in every aspect of our community He guides us in the proper etiquette to be taken.

The benefits of this are that there is a lot of peace in our lives instead of hate, resentment, bitterness anger and self pity. There is a lot less depression in our lives because we have the gentle strong love of Christ saturating our hearts blessing us with Divine peace. There is a lot less confusion in our lives because He guides us with Holy inspiration which is the ultimate in Holy Guidance.

As well, they bring us into closer communion with Him.

When we begin to obey Jehovahs commands in every aspect of our lives with our relationship with Him He opens our eyes to the right path to take in every aspect of our lives that is pleasing unto Him. He guides us in how to obey him, how to worship Him and how to love Him.

Radiant: having or showing an attractive quality of happiness, love, health, etc.  Merriam Webster Dictionary

The end result in this is a life filled with love, joy, mental and physical health (yes we suffer health problems just like those in the world but we have the rock solid foundation of His love, joy and wisdom in or hearts which emulates unto others) gracefulness, meekness and humbleness. This quality is rewarded with bringing in others who are receptive to desiring such a Heavenly relationship in their lives.

BEAUTY

When we have the glow of Jehovahs love in our hearts we emit a glowing love for the dark world to see. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for Your amazing wisdom that creates a heart that blossoms with peace, love and joy in my life and in our eternal loving relationship. I exalt You in the name of my most Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the love, joy and peace of Jesus bless you today and every day.
