Are You Going to Drown?

FOLLOW JESUS

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt? Matthew 14: 23-31 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

When we take our eyes off of Jesus we are heading for spiritual fall. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What can take our eyes off of Jesus?

Which on of these categories do you fall into: there is problems in my family ( instead of fretting about these problems and being a dingbat and trying to fix them yourself, why not do the wise thing and give it over to Jesus. He will send the best guidance councilor, the Holy Spirit to help you.),

I need money. I don’t think there has been a time since money was made when people didn’t have this concern. Again rely on Jesus to supply your needs. Didn’t He promise He would take care of us when He said:” Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.”

I’m sick. Now this is the time to get into deep relationship with God because that is when you are weak and through His divine strength He will help you. He may not cure you but give you the strength to endure it.

When we keep our eyes focused on Jesus He will give us everything we need to handle any crisis.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrew 4: 16 New Living Translation)

You know, one time I was going through the most painful experience in my life. It was recovering from a terribly abusive relationship. In my deep anguish I, a broken man, sobbed to Jesus to come and rescue me from this pit of hell. Through an internet Pen Pals site and a Christian radio program I noticed while searching the internet (Focus on the Family I was introduced to loving caring Christian councilors that helped lift me out of that hell and heal me. I am forever indebted to both them and my wonderful Jesus for bringing them into my life at that moment.

Now my whole commitment is unto Jehovah God our beloved Abba.

The greatest honor is to be a servant of the greatest king, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with being the bright light that guides my life. May I follow it all the way to Heavens Gate. I praise You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

“Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God” (1 Chron. 22:19). New Living Translation

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

They are Hard but Necessary

 

REPENT

Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 Holy Bible, New International Version

They are three of the hardest words for us to say :”I am sorry.”

How many marriages and friendships have been destroyed because the offender refused to apologize?

You know why they refuse to apologize?

PRIDE!

When on the other hand you apologize, many times, you end up feeling better than the person who was offended.

They are hard but necessary steps you must take.

If on the other hand you are proud and arrogant and refuse to apologize what right do you have to expect God to forgive you or to give you any blessings?

If you refuse to forgive others why do you expect Jehovah to forgive you? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me a humble heart that is sincerely willing to repent to any and all who I offend, including You. I implore You in the name of He who taught true repentance best Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Will Find It.

And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 10:38-39 New King James Version

How many for eons have folks wondered the meaning of life?

They foolishly waste their time amassing material wealth.

Those with the most toys when they die are not the happiest nor the riches, they are the saddest and poorest in spirit., Joseph- Anthony: Green

Chasing after satanic religions like buddihism or new agers still leaves them with a empty feeling and purpose.

There is only one way to enlightenment and that is through the Holy Spirit. All else is satan disguised as light as he leads you down to an eternal Hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Some try to maintain a super fit body all of their lives, sorry but you will be in for quite the shock on your death bed when you realize it was all for naught. We all die and then go to our eternal rewards’. That is not to say we should not take proper care of our bodies, just do not worship them.

Some find it in raising a family. Oh the deep sadness when their children grow up and they are left with an empty nest and an empty heart, especially if they distance themselves from you which is all too common today. There is nothing wrong with enjoying having a Christian family but those who worship their children and grand children are raising selfish, self centered child which grow into selfish, self centered adults. The only time they call mommy or daddy or grandma or grandpa is when they want money. They do not appreciate it and give nothing in return. They never call, come to visit or help. They are waiting for them to die so they can get their inheritance and spend it foolishly.  I unfortunately see all too often as seniors live a daily hell of loneliness and deep sadness in isolation. This is a shame upon the children and a disgrace.

Others worship their careers. It is all for naught. They will lose it when their career is out dated, which happens all too common today. In many instances people are replaced by robots. How about when you retire, then what are you going to do with your life if it has been centered on your career?

But when we become free willing servant to Christ our King we will find the true meaning of their lives when Jehovah blesses us with revealing it to them. It will not be easy the following path Jehovah has chosen for you but well worth it in our daily lives and in our eternal ones.

Following Christ is not easy but the rewards are Heavenly. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi – Shepherd for being such a patient and wise Shepherd to this at times obstinate little , sheep. Please bless all who place their faith in You with guiding them to the lives You have purposed for them before they were even born. I exalt You and humble beseech You in the name of the greatest shepherd Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Slumbering Worshipers

You, God, are my God earnestly I seek you. Psalm 63:1 New International Version

How much do you seek Jehovah every day?

How much do you look for His beauty that exists all around us(if you desire to see His amazing beauty just go sit in nature, relax and look all around you, listen to the sweet songs of the birds, dink in the sweet fragrance of the wildflowers in bloom in the early morning.)?

How much do you praise Him for these loving gifts?

How much do you seek His financial advice (I dare say that we would not be facing financial disaster in our country or in so many folks lives if they did this)?

How obedient are you to His all wise advice?

How much do you consult Him about your lifestyle (how much less disease would we have if we maintained a healthy diet like suggested in the Bible and how much less disease would there be if folks were less sexually promiscuous and more nurturing in loving relationships ?)?

How much enjoyment do you find in being with Him every day (again we would not have so many souls in debt up to their eyeballs if they sought to worship Jehovah as much as they worship things)?

How much time do you spend reading your Bible compared to how much time you spend on the internet?

How much time do you spend listening to Christian music compared to the rubbish they disgustingly call music today?

How much time do you spend talking with Him compared to how much time you waste texting all your good time friends?

How much do you seek His wise advice in your relationships (How much less heartache and divorce would there be if we all did this, how much less trouble we would endure at school and work?) and are obedient unto His advice?

How much do you actively ask Jehovah to reveal Himself to you?

I would rather spend an hour in prayer with my Beloved than a day with the most interesting man or most beautiful woman. Joseph- Anthony: Green

SPIRITUAL BREATH

How much do you ask Jehovah to bless you with a more intense loving relationship with Him?

“I believe a very large majority of church-goers are merely unthinking, slumbering worshipers of an unknown God.” Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Please bless me Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) to always nurture a loving relationship with You and to always consult You and be obedient unto Your will. I humbly request this in the name of He who always was and is Your most obedient and loving Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Lest It Be a Snare.

SOFT RAPIDS THROUGH QUIET FOREST

Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. Exodus 34: 12 New King James Version                                                                                        

And they play the harlot with their gods and make sacrifice to their gods, and one of them invites you and you eat of his sacrifice, and you take of his daughters for your sons, and his daughters play the harlot with their gods and make your sons play the harlot with their gods. Exodus 34: 15 New King James Version                                                                                   

covenant: a formal and serious agreement or promise Merriam-Webster Dictionary.     

This is why it is impossible for Christians to marry non-Christians or to have non-Christians as friends.                                                                 

Beware; if you are foolish enough to marry a non-Christian believing your love will change them you are in for a painful surprise. Not only will they not change but chances are they will drag you away from Christ. Statistics say your marriage will end up in divorce.                                      

What will that do to any children that are born before the divorce?

Dance with the devil and you will get burned on his dance floor. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                  

If you choose to hang out with non-Christians soon you will stop praying, stop reading your Bible and will be carried away into destructive habits which will eventually destroy both your life and your relationship with Christ.                                                                                                           

Been there one that. Thankfully Jesus never gave up on me and I was blessed with Him taking me to another country to get away from the bad influence. Yes it can be that serious.                                                                               

I am not saying all non-Christians are bad but the fact that they do not live a Christian life will drag you away from Christ.                                           

So say instead of going to a Bible study they convince you to join their baseball team. Now the baseball team is not bad but if it drags you away from Christ, that is bad. 

                                                                             

Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Ori (The Lord my Light) guide me to good Christian fellowship and away from those who walk in darkness lest I fall away from You my Beloved. Please bless me to be a light unto those walking in darkness to bring them into Your holy light. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

That I May Not Cause Pain!

Christ, WILL LEAD

“That Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested. 1 Chronicles 4:10 New King James Version                                                      

Think of a loving father that guides his child in how to have mature respectful relationships. That is a good father.

 

How much more supreme is Jehovah our Heavenly Father?

When we submit to His divine wisdom He guides our thoughts away from evil and towards love and good.

 

When someone does us wrong our first instinct is revenge. This is a never ending circle of destruction of I get you back, then you get me back even worse. Each time it escalates.

 

When, instead we pray to our loving Father to take our hand and guide us in the righteous way to handle the matter not only does it prevent a lot of hardship and trouble but it also glorifies Him.

Then there is the unknown.

Perhaps someone did us wrong unintentionally but we take it personally and want revenge. An innocent individual gets hurt. As well, we as ambassadors of Christ blacken His holy name.

 

This has happened to me on a few occasions and I felt like a fool towards the one I offended and all those present. As well I was deeply ashamed towards my loving Father in Heaven. When the truth came to light I humbly approached them and deeply, sincerely apologized.

We are ambassadors for Christ unto the world. Let our words and actions be done accordingly to bring Him glory not shame. Joseph- Anthony: Green

If we pray for Jehovahs hand to guide us through the situation and are obedient unto His guidance we not only prevent unnecessary harm but bring glory unto Him. Because of this we may be the catalyst to brining lost souls into Jehovahs holy family by our actions.

When we pray for revenge Jehovah is silent. When we pray for wisdom to deal with the situation righteously He abundantly blesses us with holy wisdom. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) daily take my hand and guide me words and actions that they bring praise and glory unto You and bring the little lost sheep unto You. I humbly request this in the name of he who led His disciples into becoming wise, meek, humble and gracious unto all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Put Them on the Shoulders.

A CUTE LITTLE SNOWBALL

He made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and of fine woven linen.  And they beat the gold into thin sheets and cut it into threads, to work it in with the blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and the fine linen, intoartistic designs. They made shoulder straps for it to couple it together; it was coupled together at its two edges. And the intricately woven band of his ephod that was on it was of the same workmanship, woven of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and of fine woven linen, as the Lord had commanded Moses.   And they set onyx stones, enclosed in settings of gold; they were engraved, as signets are engraved, with the names of the sons of Israel. He put them on the shoulders of the ephod as memorial stones for the sons of Israel, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Exodus 39:2-7 New King James Version                                                                       

The shoulder pads for the high priest was a symbol of our high priest Jesus Christ.

 

The jewels in the shoulder pads were precious jewels.

We are precious jewels to Jesus.

The names of the twelve tribes of Israel were engraved upon the stones. Our names are precious and are engraved upon Jesus’ heart. Just as the priest was to carry these upon his shoulders so too does our precious Priest carry us upon His shoulders like a good Sheppard. When the sheep go astray the good Sheppard carries them back to the flock.

When the load of life is too heavy to carry and you believe it is impossible to continue on one more step, give it all to Jesus. If He was strong enough to carry the cross for you, He is more than strong enough to carry your cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Many times in my life it was only when I surrendered it all to Jesus that the troubles slowly were resolved. I believe it was slowly because that allowed me time to digest just what an awesome, loving, caring, strong and wise Savior we have in Jesus. Jesus is not just our Saviour in Gods grace but also in our daily lives.

It is in our weakness that Jesus is strong.   Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ  Rohi (Jesus is my Shepherd) for blessing me with having my name engraved upon Your strong shoulders to carry me back to Your Holy flock when I go astray. I exalt You in You strong and gentle name. Amen.

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