At Compound Interest.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 One of the advantages of getting old is seeing the hand of Jehovah in others lives during the course of a few decades.

If then, you act with hostility toward Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times in accordance with your sins.” Leviticus 26:21 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed many of the proud and arrogant laugh as they foolishly believe they can live their lives as they see fit and are cruel and dishonest with their neighbours. Through the course of time their mental, physical and spiritual health deteriorates until they are living a daily life of living hell all alone. They are angry and bitter. The strange thing is that they know if they repent at least they will have mental and spiritual health but because they are arrogant they refuse, even unto death. At the moment of death they are alone and terrorized knowing that they are doomed to be cast into eternal Hell where they belong. There is a deep sense of doom and gloom in the room and you cannot wait to get out of there. It is a very sad and pitiful site to see no matter how bad they were to you.

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the [steadfast] lovingkindness which He swore to your fathers. He will love you and bless you. Deuteronomy 7:12-13 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed those that love Jehovah and are obedient unto Him. They are kind, loving, joyous and generous. They age gracefully and are surrounded with a swarm of others to constantly help them when they need help in their old age. They are enveloped with an aura of peace, love, joy and gentleness. You cannot help but love to be around them and help them. When it is time for them to pass on to the other side they are surrounded by loved ones. There is a peace in the room when they pass on. You cannot help but cry with joy at the honour of being their friend and look forward to being with them in Heaven.

“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your divine guidance to walk in Your Heavenly light. Thank you that the fruit of this light is love, joy and peace and with the numerous opportunities to share this light with others in a cold, cruel dark world. I praise you in the name of the Prince of Light Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

One of the Most Harmful Habits.

 

 

 “There can be no doubt that possessive clinging to things is one of the most harmful habits in the Christian life. Because it is so natural, it is rarely recognized for the evil that it is. But its outworkings are tragic.” A. W. Tozer

At one time I worked a lot of overtime and invested my money according to the advice of financial planners (Be careful of them. They are not all good as I sadly found out). I lived a very frugal lifestyle just to save up for a comfortable early retirement. Alls I lived for was to stash money away to make that baby grow. Sadly events occurred that wiped me out not once but three times. I felt totally devastated and if the world had literally ended. Each time I wanted to give up but went right back to it again. During this time my Bible gathered dust and the only time I talked with my beloved was when I wanted something from Him. Our relationship was on life support. When things crashed I went to Him but when the new nest egg stared growing I deserted Him for the nest egg. What a pitiful life it was. It was one of the most harmful habits that could exist in anyones life.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matthew 6:33 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Finally, when I had nothing left I surrendered unto the Holy Spirit. Through decades (talk about a slow learned huh) He taught me to be submissive and obedient unto Jehovah’s calling in my life. Yes it has been hard but that was a blessing because it has brought us ever closer together. The harder the times the closer it brings me to Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green I have a deep respect, love and admiration for my Beloved Father, King and Holy Teacher. This is the greatest treasure of all. Through it all He has always provided fro my needs (not wants which is fleshly).

“I will place no value on anything I have or may possess, except in relation to the kingdom of Christ.” David Livingstone  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your daily provision which You graciously bless me with. I thank You in the name of He whose cherished sacrifice made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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.

His Trouble Shall Return

He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown. Psalm 7:15-16 New King James Version

We have all met, I am sure, those who delight in causing trouble.  They love to cause fights between families, they love to cause fights between friends, they love to cause fights at work or school and they love to cause fights at public events (just look at soccer matches in Europe). They get their perverted pleasure from watching others fight and the grief it causes.

Give it time. It always comes back on them. And when it happens it always happens when they least expect it and at a very inopportune time (like say door crashers at a wedding reception or at a social event where it will cause them a lot of embarrassment.

The other thing I have noticed about them is that when they are young they believe they are getting away with it but as they age (it usually begins in their forties) they find themselves friendless. When they need companionship or help there is no one there for them.

Another thing I find happens is that they end up with tormentors (say a neighbour that is constantly playing loud music and doing things to anger them and laughing in their faces. Their lives are one of constant torment.

I have seen it too many times to count (that is one advantage of being older; we get to see them receive them fruits of their labours as it were). When confronted with these wicked creatures do not take things into your own hands but leave them in the hands of Jehovah. It may seem as if they are getting away with it and you may not see Jehovahs justice but be sure they will get what they have coming to them.

WRONG WALK

The seeds you plant today you will harvest in abundance tomorrow. Be careful the type of seeds you are planting. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. Proverbs 21:15 New International Version

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. Luke 18:7-8 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is the Supreme Judge) for promising and delivering on Your Divine word that You will ensure true justice is done to the wicked who persecute, harm and cheat Your beloved children. I thank You in the name of the King who will deliver eternal justice on the Day of Judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They Will Get Their Wages in Full.

A wicked person earns deceptive wages, but the one who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward. Proverbs 11:18 New International Version

The deceptive man lies, cons, deceives, manipulates and steals to get what he wants.

I have seen many when a tree planter that did this and laughed thinking they were getting away with it. In the end they lost their business, their homes, their families and their savings. They live out on the street with the homeless that they arrogantly mocked.

The reward of the righteous may be material but will definitely be spiritual and a beautiful communion with Jehovah. Their ultimate reward of course is a mansion in Heaven surrounded by brothers and sisters who love them. Of course the ultimate of ultimates is being with Jesus for eternity.

HONESTY

Which are you seeking after?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan  (God is gracious) for so abundantly blessing me with Your rich gifts both physical and spiritual. Please bless me to use these blessings to share with others to enrich them as You have enriched me. I meekly ask this in the name of He who blessed me with the pouring out of His life for my salvation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cleanest but not Clean.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 New King James Version

When we become Christians all of our past sins are washed away when we confess and repent of our sins.  We are considered clean before our Holy Father by the blood of Christ our sacrificial lamb. They no longer have a hold on us. Those chains that held us are smashed and we are eternally free of them.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:8 New King James Version

Now that is not to say we are perfect and blameless.

SINFUL DESIRE

How many times can you go through a day without sinning?

Try as we may we are still in a fleshly body and therefore still have weaknesses in us no matter how hard we try to be sinless.

Just try to keep all of the Ten Commandments in a day and see if you can. Yes the Ten Commandments are just as important today as they were in the Old Testament times.

I tried and it is impossible.

That is why we need to confess our sins with a truly remorseful heart. Then we are cleansed by the precious blood of Christ.

But to receive this you must truly desire to conquer your short comings and work with the Holy Spirit to conquer them.

So it is no use to ask Jehovah to deliver you from viewing pornography while searching porno sites on line.

To willfully sin is a double sin. One, you make the choice to sin and second, you follow through on your desires. Try as you may there is no forgiveness of this sin. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now when and if you come to your senses are realize the wrong you have done and with tears confess your short comings unto Jehovah then you will be cleansed of your sins again.

Prayer: Jehovah-Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for the supreme sacrifice Your cherished Son made to cleanse me of all my filthy sins and make me pure in Your loving eyes.

Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti  (The Lord my Deliverer) for delivering me from a life that was Hell bound through Your Beloved Sons blood. Thank you for providing a means to escape these chains and the strength to eternally conquer them. Thank you that when I sincerely fess up You forgive me of my sinful weaknesses. I thank You in the name of He whose precious blood made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Will not Laugh in the End.

Jacob conned his brother out of his birthright and his father our of the blessings. When he fled from his brothers anger he settled with his uncle and fell in love with his cousin.

The uncle conned Jacob into serving him for over fourteen years.

Let this be a lesson to you.

HONESTY

If you are a conner, deceiver, manipulator and liar it does come back to bite you. I have seen many who in their early years were the worst I have ever met. Now they are old and are constantly getting conned and manipulated. Their lives are one of constant grief and loneliness.

Is that where you are heading?

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) speak to me and convict me when I am beginning to become a Conniving Kevin so that I do not violate Your holy command of do not do unto others as you would not want them to do unto you. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who was honest everything He did Jesus Christ. Amen.

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