He is Awesome.

Come and see the works of God; He is awesome. Psalm 66:5 New King James Version

When I was working on an oil rig one winter in the far north we had the awesome experience of being surrounded by the Northern Lights. They just seemed to perform a deathly quiet gentle ballet all around us.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created those magnificent lights?

Jehovah did.He is truly awesome.

When I bicycled through a desert in Southern California it seemed as if the stars were so close to me I could reach out and touch them. It felt as if I was in space floating around them.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created all those stars?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

In the morning it was as quiet as a morgue. The red buttes seemed like long fingers of blood slowly reaching out to me.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created all those buttes?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

When camping in the Baja in Mexico every evening the sun would just hang in the sky and then slowly drift behind an island out to sea. The sea became a kaleidoscope of brilliant colours.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created all those buttes?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

When in Hong Kong I saw the sunrise slowly above some islands out at sea. The waves were like soft gentle waves of brilliant a kaleidoscope. It felt as if it was drawing me in to them.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created all those waves and the sun?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

After an ice storm I love to walk through the forest when the sun comes out. The branches glisten like diamonds and the forest is eerily quiet with the only sound being your foot steps crunching the ice covered ground.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created those ice crystals and the sun?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

In the spring time I love to walk through cheery or apple orchards in the early morning. The sweet delicate fragrance of the blossoms is truly intoxicating.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created those blossoms?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

Are you beginning to get the picture?

I could go on and on but time is limited.

TASTE OF HEAVEN

If you desire to see Jehovah’s awesomeness go where He abundantly exhibits it, in His creation, nature.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with sharing many of Your awesome creations with me so I can witness Your magnificence, beauty and power. I praise You in the name of He who there with You during this awesome creation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

This Cannot Keep Going On.

“Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you, the land itself must observe a Sabbath to the Lord. For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. But in the seventh year the land is to have a year of Sabbath rest, a Sabbath to the Lord. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards. Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest. Lev. 25:2-5 New International Version

Do you believe just because it is old it is worthless?

The Word of God is older than the hills. It is to be trusted and obeyed because it is the wisest.

Because they did not obey Gods commandment in the United States and give the land a rest, is it not a historical fact that that is what caused the “dust bowl” of the nineteen thirties?

Now concerning the farmland in the world, how many farmers give their crops a years rest?

Indeed, how much farmland in the world is owned by big companies like Monsanto? Do they care about obeying Gods word or about profit?

You see, it used to be that farmers rotated their crops. That meant that one year they would grow say vegetables and the next use it for cows to graze on. It allowed the ground to regain the nutrients it gave up to the vegetable the year before.

Now, because they do not give the land a rest it is growing weaker and weaker every year. This means they have to put stronger and stronger fertilizer on it. This means there are less and less nutrients in our food.

It is true that fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today. The main culprit in this disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion: Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=soil-depletion-and-nutrition-loss

Eventually it is going to collapse.

When that happens, and it could happen any time now, there is going to be a world wide famine like never before in history.

When that happens, do not say:” God, how can you do this to us?”

It is not Gods fault, it is mans for refusing to obey Gods wise command.

What are you doing to take care of the land around you?

The natural world that God has made Must not be used at whim; We serve as stewards of His earth, Responsible to Him. —D. DeHaan

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) move people to more sustainable and organic farming and move their hearts to obey Your discerning Word. I ask this in the name of He who feeds us spiritually Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

Concentrate on Him.

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8 New King James Version

Instead of concentrating on self to gain happiness which always leaves you feeling empty (you know I need a new car or house to be happy. I need to make more money. I need the latest fashion clothes to be happy {it constantly amazes me how shallow people are to buy designer clothes that are no better than no name one but twice the price} or I need a better body) concentrate on Christ.

It is always the most fulfilling experience to enjoy a beautiful love affair with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

 

This is accomplished with setting aside quiet time every day reading His love letter and guidance book to you (the Bible) and talking with Him.

It also involves finding a quiet place in nature to just sit and enjoy communing with Him.

 

Enjoying nature is the best place to commune with Christ.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Jehovah made nature, man made cities. Which do you find more serine and beautiful?

 

The other way to develop a relationship with Him is to serve Him.

Request the Holy Spirit to guide you to the best place to serve Him and then depend upon His guidance to accomplish the work he has brought you to do.

Think of it as you and the Holy Spirit being a tag team. During this time you will feel as a partner and will enjoy working with the best Guidance Councilor.  When you do this you will experience joy.

 

The difference between happiness and joy is like comparing a bowl of instant soup to a smorgasbord of delicacies.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ElHeenu (the Lord our God)  for the incredible honour of being a member of Your holy family. The most cherished time of my day every day is the time I spend with You. I give thanks for this treasure in the name of the best friend one could ever have Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Spreads the Snow.

WAIT UPON GOD

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes. Psalm 147:16 New International Version                                                        

As there is a snow storm predicted for our area I prayed that we would not get the storm but rather a constant gentle snow flurry.                                                                               

Yesterday morning when I woke up there was a constant gentle snow flurry outside which has lasted all day.                                                                                                             

This morning I awoke to see huge snowdrifts outside. We were blessed with over a foot of snow last night.                                                                                                                              

I am sure the kids like it because of a snow day but I am even more sure it delighted the farmers even more.

As well we need it to replenish our streams and rivers.     

Another benefit is it will cover the roots so they do not get frozen and the plants like tree’s die like they did last year.                                      

Because last month there was a shortage of snow we need a good snowfall for our crops and to prevent soil erosion during these winter months.     

Finally because of the cold and snow it will kill harmful pests that lay eggs in tree’s.                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Nuah. (God who blesses with rest) for blessing us with just the right amount of snow to nourish and protect the land while not deluding us to make it treacherous for locals driving to worship You at church today. I humbly thank you in the name of He who nourished the crowd of three thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.                      

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