I will never fail you. I will never abandon you. Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
This promise has brought light to my darkest days.
When I was planting trees, the camps were like Sodom and Gomorrah a lot of sex, drugs and booze. Their morals fit the description as well. That is why I camped outside of it. So many times there was such an overpowering feeling of loneliness and as if it was the world against me. Upon praying to my Beloved, He would comfort me with this verse.
The same was true in China where morals were considered stupid and for fools. This was true not just with most Chinese but with the majority of foreign teachers as well.
Then, there was the crucifixion. That is where whatever or whomever you love must have that love crucified. That does not mean you do not love them anymore ( although it may ) it means you do not put them above Christ. It was my most painful experience and it was when Christ softly whispered this verse in my ear that there was strength to carry on.
No matter what you are going through our loving strong Christ is walking through it with you. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend John 15:15 ) that You are the truest friend ever. You are always by my side through thick and thin. Through the sunshine and through the storms. I exalt You in Your loving name. Amen.
May you take comfort and gain strength that Christ is with you always.

“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy—full of greed and self-indulgence! Matthew 23:25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
When it comes to matters of religion, you probably have discovered that the most dangerous person in the Church is a hypocrite. You can’t tell them anything without a terrible reaction.
Unfortunately there are too many of these filthy marshmallows in every church.
They are quick to point out every little fault with all those in the congregation while perpetrating even worse sins in their own life.
When confronted with this they are like marsh mallows and welt in the heat. They take it personally like they are sweet angels and how dare you judge them by the same manner they judge others. They are like immature spoiled brats and throw a temper tantrum.
“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole
These pretenders need to be expelled from the church until they repent or else they will destroy the entire congregation.
I have personally seen active and vibrant churches destroyed by just one of these wicked creatures so yes it is to be taken seriously.
Prayer: I meekly implore You Jehovah Mauzzi (Jeremiah 16:19 The LORD My Fortress ) to set up a strong impenetrable fortress around every church to keep the wolves at bay.
Please bless us with the grace and wisdom to take them to task when they are ripping apart Your holy family and, if necessary, expel them from the congregation for its survival.
We have enough outside Your church trying to destroy us, we do not need them inside as well. I respectfully request this in the name of our Church leader, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the tactfulness and strength to discipline and, if necessary, expel the destroyers of your church Joseph a son of Jehovah.

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:15-16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Prayer: Thank you kindly Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength Psalm 27:1 ) for walking amongst us so You understand the trials and temptations, the tribulations and sorrows we experience in our daily life.
As such, when I come to You seeking help You bless ME with: strength where I am weak and the opportunity to use this strength to help others. The mercy to forgive me when I succumb to my weakness and repent of them.
May I extend that to those who repent when they have wronged me. The gentleness of a loving friend to teach others how to be members of Jehovahs holy family when they are uneducated in the proper etiquette befitting such a noble family.
May I guide others to behave in such a regal manner.
I humbly implore You to grant this petition this in Your gracious name. Amen.
May you be blessed with copious amounts of tutoring at the Masters feet to enable you to be a grand example of a noble family and plenty of opportunities to use them.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Prayer: Oh Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace Isaiah 9:6, Rom 8:31-35 ) I thank you so much that I can always come to you with whatever is upsetting me. Every time You calm me down with Your gentle loving Divine peace and then softly speak to me and help relieve the stress I am experiencing.
Then You wisely explain the answer to all my questions and stressful situations. I am grateful that You have taught me to always come to You before I take any action.
I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen
Those who pray first, wait for the Lords answer and then be obedient unto His instruction have a lot less stress in their lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May the LORD, calm your anxious heart and the urgent demand for quick results. May He help you to wait on Him, trusting that His timing is perfect.” Joseph a son of Jehovah
If they had longed for the country they came from, they could have gone back. Hebrews 11:15 The Holy Bible New Living Translation
Personally, I find folks fall into one of two categories concerning the past. This is truer the older you get.
One is the side where everything was sunshine and lollipops. They do not remember the hard times nor the bad ones. They desire to live looking back.
The other is the Gloomy Guses. They only remember the bad times. They do not remember the good times.
Even though sometimes it is good to reflect back the most important thing is to keep looking forward. Forward to the Heavenly home that is awaiting us. You cannot see where you are going if you are looking back. Joseph a son of Jehovah
PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Elohenu Olam (Psalms 48:14) – Our Everlasting GOD for being my God in the past, my God in the present and most importantly, my God with whom I am blessed to share eternity with. I praise You in the name of my best friend I long to walk through eternity with Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 1 Peter 1:17 New International Version
It does not matter what others say in ridicule or scorn to me, I want to live so that I will hear Him say to me” Well done good and faithful servant.” Joseph- Anthony: Green
When I was a teenager it drove me crazy with everyone telling how to live my life with each being different from the other. I could not please everybody so I pleased nobody, especially myself. To say I was miserable was an understatement.I was confused and frustrated to the max each and every day.
When faithfully obeying the Holy Spirits leading I slowly learned that Jehovah had a plan for my life and that He had a purpose for me.
Jesus does not care if you are rich or poor, a sports athlete or permanently crippled in a wheelchair, whether you are handsome or bland, what colour you are or what country you come from. What he cares about it that you are faithful and obedient to His calling in your life.And, He does have a calling for each and every one of us, His servants.
To be in reverent fear means to be respectful.
As Jesus is our King so too are we His servants. We are to be respectful and obedient to our King and in our service to our King.
It is to Him and Him alone that we owe allegiance to and not any country or relative.
Jesus is my judge not my neighbour nor relatives nor friends. Joseph- Anthony: Green
People are fickle. Today you are a hero and tomorrow you are a has been. People minds are limited and clouded by their own desires.Every time I followed a man or womans advice without consulting Jehovah first it the endeavor ended in disaster.
Whose judgment concerns you more: people or Jesus’?
Be careful, your eternal destiny depends upon this important decision.
Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is My Judge) bless me with guidance and strength to always be an obedient son unto You in my walk towards Your Heavenly home You have lovingly prepared for me. I sincerely request this in the name of my beloved King Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 2 Timothy 2:23 New King James Version
I have met many whose pure joy it is to start arguments for the sole purpose of watching others get upset. They are called narcissists.
The sad thing is that when you look into their lives they are very sad and lonely. That is because they have low self esteem and care about no one but themselves.
When you surround your self with yourself you have no on but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green.
I do not play their games. I only gracefully and wisely speak the truth with them. Then it is asked why they insist on being trouble makers? Is it because your own life is so miserable that you are not happy unless you make those around you miserable as well? I ask them if they would like to get help with counseling and most turn and run. I do not say this in a sarcastic nor accusing manner but with grace and humbleness. If they truly desire help I have the resources to help them and will work with them to get that help.
They know they have these problems but do not want to face them nor resolve them.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God is our peace) instill in me a heart filled with Your divine peace whenever I encounter the pitiful lost souls that hearts are filled with the vile of hatred and anger. Please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekfulness to guide them to the help they so desperately need. I humbly request this in the name of the prince of peace who always kept His cool when under attack and replied with wisdom, gracefulness and meekness Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:11-12 New King James Version
It hurts when you are wrongly accused and the accusers refuse to listen. You can never justify yourself to them and the more you try the more they try to beat you down. This is a form of bullying and domineering. These creatures usually suffer from low self esteem.
It is best to state the truth and ask the accusers where their proof is (which they of course do not have).
When they cannot produce the proof I call them liars and if they had an once of respect they would feel ashamed of themselves for their despicable behavior. Then, just walk away.
That is why it is good to have good Christian support and mentors to strengthen you. The other thing is they can talk it out and maybe you need to go to counseling with your accusers.
Challenge your accusers to go in for mediation with you. They will decline the offer of course because they know they are wrong and refuse to admit it. I have done this successfully and it has stopped the abusers cold.
“‘Never argue with a fool, they will lower you to their level and then beat you with experience.’ Woody Allen
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for rescuing me from the fools that plague the earth every time they open their mouths. I thank you in the mighty name of He who put the Pharisees in their place Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day .
