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.

How to Spot the Falsies.

RED IN A SEA OF GREEN

One way to spot false teachers is if they are smooth talkers.

Smooth talkers usually dress flashy. They always try to con you into their way of thinking. If you question them they become angry or accuse you of not having the supreme intelligence they have. They try to make you believe they are doing something for your good when in reality they are just conning you. I experienced this a lot. If you try to get them to get it in writing they try the guilt trip with you of :”What is the matter, don’t you trust me?” my reply is: “What’s the matter, why don’t you want to put it in writing if you are so honest?” They quickly leave me alone. There are many variations like aren’t I your friend? If you do not trust me I do not want to deal with you, this is for a limited time only, if you do not take it someone else will.

They are self centered instead of God centered. They like to talk about their accomplishments instead of what God has done through them or for them. Again they are flashy dressers that say look at me. They are greedy. They want money and fame instead of wanting to advance Christs kingdom and helping others. They pull at your strings to try to con you into giving them money to help others when in reality they take most of the money themselves. If you ask them to show you their accountability in writing where the money goes they accuse you of being stingy.

 

They always believe they are right. If you question their interpretation of Scripture they  accuse you of challenging their authority and try to put you on the defensive. I just stick to my guns.  They try to put others down so as to make themselves look good. Boy have I ever met a lot of those. When you try to defend yourself they just try to shout you down.

When you see any of these avoid them like the plague.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) please open my eyes to all the wolves in sheeps clothing that lurk around looking for the naive. When I do encounter them please bless me with the wisdom, grace, strength and meekness to defend myself and protect the gullible from their evil jaws. I ask this in the name of He who exposed the wolves when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

My Double Blessing.

I CAN LEAN ON HIM

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 New International Version

 

Every day I pray that Jesus molds me to be more like Him.

 

One day I wanted to go to the library to work on my writing. (it is very hot and the library has air-conditioning. As well they are doing construction where I live and it is very noisy).

 

There was a strong feeling to go grocery shopping instead.

 

When at the supermarket there was a one day sale where many of the items needed were half price.

 

While waiting in line an elderly Chinese female tried to queue jump in front of me.

 

I firmly but politely informed her to go to the back of the line as I stretched out my arm to prevent her from jumping in front of me.

 

Chinese are very stubborn and rude so the arm was put out because they just ignore you and do as they want anyway.

 

She tried to ignore me and push in front. I gently but firmly pushed her back and told her in a stronger voice to get to the back of the line.

 

She understood she was not going to get away with her rudeness and the cashier informed her she would not accept her groceries until she got to the back of the line so she angrily went to the back of the line.

 

The other Chinese females were happily impressed. Upon reflecting upon it later I realized that is exactly what Jesus would have done.

 

Please do not be politically correct and say the old female should have been allowed to get away with her arrogant rudeness. Jesus did not accept abhorrent behavior from anyone regardless of age or status and neither should a Christian.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me in the proper manner in how to deal with arrogant and rude men and women.

 

I give thanks for this gift in the name of he who did not tolerate rudeness Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

Give It To Them Bluntly

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.

He replied, “When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away.

Matthew 16:1-4 New International Version

The Pharisee’s and Sadducee’s when they confronted Jesus were just looking to pick a fight. Jesus gave it to them bluntly and then walked away.

That is what we are to do when confronted with those who get a perverted pleasure out of picking fights.

I do not try to reason with unreasonable people. I just tell it like it is and then walk away.

If you try to reason with them they will manipulate you into a stupid fight and laugh as they sickly watch you get all upset.

I speak from a lot of experience.

Many times I would try to use reason to no avail and get very frustrated and angry. Then the perpetrators act innocent and try to blame you saying it is all your fault.

They are truly the spawn of the devil and yes there is a special place in Hell just for them. (look up where Jesus says woe to trouble makers).

Now I politely but firmly tell them like it is and walk away.

They are the ones that look stupid and get angry while the bystanders laugh at them.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (the voice of God) bless me to be Your voice and convict the filthy wolves of their dirty little game and then provide me with the grace to leave in a dignified manner befitting of You.

I earnestly ask this in the name of he who gave it to His condemner’s right between the eyes when they attacked Him Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Know Because.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. Jeremiah 29:11-12

If anyone asks me how I know I have been called to be a teacher through the writer, Bible study leader and councilor I will quote from the above verses.

As well there are people who I can direct them to, to give testimony.

Finally there is the wisdom Jehovah has blessed me with to be used to be His tool through being a teacher is quite evident.

As a consequence Jehovah has promised to take care of those he has called into His service.

Then do like Jesus did when challenged by the Scribes and Pharisee’s and that is to just walk away.

Either the Spirit will open their eyes and they will believe and we can continue on from there or they will be hard hearted and it does not matter what I say and or do they refuse to believe.

In many cases the hard hearted are just looking for an argument anyway.

When you have received your calling and people question you maybe you might want to use a method like this to avoid many un-necessary and stupid arguments.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hosanna (God our maker) for the honourable blessing of having a specific purpose for me in an earthly ministry. When people challenge Your calling in my life please fill me with wisdom, patience and grace to respectfully prove to them my divine calling.

I humbly ask this in the name of He who proved to all those around Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Is He Preparing Them? Part Two

SPINNING PINK ON GREEN

Please read Deuteronomy 27& 28

In this article we will talk about a relative that loves to gossip and cause trouble. For years she played her wicked little game of being a terrible gossip and was in her most glee when she was causing fights. She then acted innocent.

People tried to council her but she is stubborn and proud (the two always go together) and refused to listen.

In one incident she caused such a terrible fight that it caused a nervous breakdown and that almost lead to suicide with one of her relatives.

First she lost her husband who was her cohort (he was just as bad) and still refused to repent.

Next she lost her eyesight yet still was unrepentant.

After that she became crippled and then lost her dog which was like her favourite child.

How stupid and stubborn people can be amazes me.

Do you think God is breaking her of her stubbornness and arrogance to prepare her to reconcile with her child when she see’s him for the first time in many years?

If you have committed a serious offense against someone may I strongly suggest you repent less you suffer Gods vengeance.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Shepherd) please guide me to be open and obedient to Your wise guidance in my life so as to not have to experience difficult and painful experiences to discipline me.

I meekly request this in the name of He who taught His best lessons to His disciples through difficulties Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You a Fool?

GUARD YOUR INPUT

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.  To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,  to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 New International Version

Are you very beautiful?

Do you prance around like a prima donna proud of your beauty?

Was your beauty not a gift from Jehovah?

Do you thank Him for that?

Do you use that talent to give glory to Him instead of giving glory to yourself?                             .

Is that not playing the part of the fool?

Can you blame Him if He takes your beauty from you?

Do you have talent to paint, write or sing?

Do you stand there basking in the limelight instead of giving glory to God and using your God giving talent to serve Him?

Is that not playing the fool?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) do not allow me to become arrogant and ungrateful for the gifts You have so graciously blessed me with.

Please provide me with the opportunities to use these gifts to bring glory to You.

I humbly request this in the name of He who used His gifts to bring glory to You as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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