Two Things I Have Asked of You.

 

 Two things I have asked of You; Do not deny them to me before I die: Keep deception and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion. So that I will not be full and deny You and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or that I will not be poor and steal, And so profane the name of my God. Proverbs 30:7-9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have been on both sides of this coin.

One time I was on hard times. You could not beg borrow or steal a job and my saving ran out. I went to the government for help but they were useless like usual. Because I could not pay my hydro there was no heat in the house in the dead of the winter ( it was warmer outside that it was inside that house) and the only food I had was when I walked up and down the ditch to collect pop bottles and beer bottles to get enough money for a loaf of bread and jar of peanut butter. That was my food for the week. In my suffering the devil came a knocking. He suggested I rob a bank to get money for food. I was seriously considering it then called out to Jehovah to take my life before I dishounoured Him. This went on every day for a month in one of the coldest bitterest winters on record at that time. Just as I was about to tie a noose a man came to the house that had hear about my plight. He not only paid all my bills, made sure the cupboards were full but put a fire under the lazy butts of the useless government workers and I received about four months back pay for unemployment insurance they kept form me for no other reason than they were lazy and incompetent.

On the other side of the coin about a decade after this I had a high paying job ( which the Americans walked in bought the company out and shut it down leaving over two hundred people without a job, including me). I lived in a nice apartment with good food in my belly. Even though I had this I stayed loyal unto Jehovah by serving Him as a volunteer at the local hospital and on a clean up crew for the local trails. Many times the tempter came a calling mocking me for my service and saying I should just take it easy and enjoy life.

Now, I live the best life, neither rich nor poor financially but am dependent upon Jehovah every day for my needs and He never lets me down.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for always providing just the right measure of everything necessary in my life every day. I thank you in the name of He who abundantly provided for the five thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass 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.

Will Not be Blessed

An inheritance claimed too soon will not be blessed at the end. Proverbs 20:21 New International Version

It is very common today for children to want their inheritance be given to them even though their parents are still alive. It is because they have foolishly gone in debt over their heads and expect their parents to pay for their extravagant lifestyle and bail them out.

POVERTY

That is like saying you wish your parents were dead.

That is a cursed thing in the eyes of Jehovah.

The children who do attain their inheritance do not curtail their unwise lifestyle but continue on falsely believing mommy and daddy will be there to bail them out again.

When mommy and daddy die and there is no money left in their inheritance to support their luxurious lifestyle and they lose everything. I can see great suffering coming soon to todays youth.

When the well runs dry oh how terrible the consequences will be for those living off of others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Naheh (the Lord who Smites) convict the wicked, selfish, self centered ones and move them to repent. Teach them to show proper respect and give loving care to their aged parents. Speak into the hearts of the parents to appreciate the loving care and sacrifice their children are giving towards them. I humbly ask this in the name of the son who cared for His mother while suffering an agonizing death Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Enjoy Your Feast Now You Filthy Pigs.

SCAMMERS PAY

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a  witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. James 5:1-4 King James Version

Unfortunately in todays world we too much of workers being paid sub standard wages and getting cheated out of them. Those higher up get away with exorbitant compensation packages even if they run the company into the ground. This is true for both the government and private sector. Enjoy your feast now you filthy pigs. Oh you laugh and foolishly believe you are getting away with it but your day is coming and when it does oh woe to you. I recently read an article where in the seventies the difference between the lowest paid work and the executives was 100% and now it is 1,000% How can they sleep at night is beyond me. Then there are the war pigs who go and start wars in other countries to keep the war machine pumping out money into their pockets. This is done not only at the expense of the invaded country but of the citizens living where the war pigs live (yes this is you Bushes and Reagan’s in the United States. How many of your youths blood do you have on your hands?). I do earnestly pray that Peters vision of Hell is true just to know true justice is done to these horrid creatures and the others that feed off of them. To me this is a sure sign we are closer than ever to the rapture.

When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” Revelation 6:5-6 King James Version                                      

A denarius was a days wages, barley is what the poor people ate and three quarts was enough to live off of for a day. Only the rich could afford olive oil (and they cheated folks out of their land to grow huge olive groves which they got filthy rich from. The same was true for wine).

How many family farms do we see today?

How many people all around the world are living paycheck to paycheck?

How many rich people have more money per year than many countries GDP?

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is the supreme Judge) speak into the hearts of the wicked rich ones and move them to do what is right and pay decent livable wages and to be honest so as to avoid facing Your terrible wrath on the day of judgment. I humbly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

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

That is a Curse

CHILDS DEEDS

He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him. Leviticus 20: 9 New King James Version

To curse your mother and or father does not necessarily mean to swear at them. It also includes your behaviour and attitude.

 

Many times in todays society we see young people go deeply in dept unnecessarily to satisfy their greed (which of course they never can or will). They expect their parents to give up their retirement savings or to mortgage their house to pay for their selfish desires. They have no concern how much their parents are suffering because of thier selfishness.

That is a curse unto Jehovah.

Many times seniors can no longer live alone in their house because of health reasons. Instead of helping them the children shove them into seniors homes and forget about them (unless they want money). That is selfish, cruel and disrespectful. Now sometimes the parents are difficult or they have health problems which makes it expedient to place them in a seniors home.

 

That is a curse unto Jehovah.

Many times the children use the grandchildren to blackmail the grandparents. So if you do not give me money we will not let you see the grandchildren any more. That is cruel selfish and disrespectful.

That is a curse unto Jehovah.

Many young people are too lazy to get a job (not all of you but a great many do) and expect to freeload off of their parents. Eventually you will have to grow up and stand on your own two feet and the longer you leech off of your parents the harder it will be for you.

I know some people who never left home and when their parents died they were in their forties. The good life was over and they were completely unprepared for it. With in a year they were homeless because they did nt know how to care for themselves.

That is a curse unto Jehovah.

For these things you will be held accountable for and the judgment will be severe.

Love is an action not an emotion. Do not tell me you love me, show me you love me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

What you do to your parents today, your children will do to you tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for the opportunity to exhibit my love and honour towards both You and my mother by being her care giver in her twilight years. I thank you in the name of He who showed His divine love for His mother even on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                             

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

This Cannot Keep Going On.

 sunlight softly caressing pink flower

“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.

There are Six Killers

POVERTY

There are six killers that destroy society today.

“But if you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and do not obey all the commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come and overwhelm you:Your towns and your fields will be cursed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be cursed.
Your children and your crops will be cursed. The offspring of your herds and flocks
will be cursed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be cursed. “The Lord himself will send on you curses, confusion, and frustration in everything you do, until at last you are completely destroyed for doing evil and abandoning me. The Lord will afflict you with diseases until none of you are left in the land you are about to enter and occupy. The Lord will strike you with wasting diseases, fever, and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, and with blight and mildew. These disasters will pursue you until you die. Deuteronomy 28:15-22 New International Version

There are six killers that destroy society today.

One: Electronic entertainment.

Now I am not saying there is anything wrong with TV, the internet or mobile phones.

What is wrong is that people spend too much time in front of the idiot box, on the internet and texting each other instead of personal contact with each other.

Instead of spending time doing things together as a family, most people are zombies with their electronics.

Have you ever seen people sitting at a table with each other and spending time texting instead of talking with each other.

I always inform people that if they want to spend time with me, they must turn off their mobiles first.

Religion.

It is not important whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Muslims, or Buddhism they all have the same core values. People need that in order to have the proper values in their lives.

Family.

How many people are spending so much time working that they are neglecting their marriages and children?

Who is better to raise your children: a mother and father or the internet or TV or texting? Instead of sitting around the supper table and talking about each others day, how many families are zoned out watching the idiot box?

I was at an acquaintances house for dinner one time. Everyone was glued to watching a rerun that they knew what it was about after the first scene. When I tried to start a conversation I was hushed.

As well how many people spend one day a week doing thing together as a family? How many people are strangers living in the same house?

Political correctness

There is no absolute right or wrong in society.

Everybody wins a prize. There is no failure permitted.

Consequently there are educated idiots graduating from schools today that are lucky if they know how to tie their shoes.

How many of the great people first suffered failure before they experience success?

Read about Thomas Edison and see how many times he failed before he invented the light bulb.

We need to understand that just as in the past when everybody did as they pleased it lead to the destruction of their society and ultimately to their country.

Look what happened in France in the seventeen hundreds as an example.

Commercialism.

Everywhere we go whether it is on the idiot box, on the mobile, on the bus, on the internet we are bombarded with buy, buy, buy.

How many countries are in debt up to their eyeballs and the people suffer because of greed?

How many people are maxed out on their credit cards because they foolishly though buying the newest toy would bring them happiness and are now slaves paying off their debt?

And of course the number one reason for the doom of any society is when they turn their backs on God.

How can you expect Gods blessings if you do not have an loving obedient relationship with Him?

Prayer: Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) please turn the hearts of the people back to You in order to prevent the doom and destruction of their personal lives, their family lives and their society lives. I humble request this in the name of the King of the most exhaled society, Heaven, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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