Gather Them in My Arms

 

I am witnessing the suffering of certain family members. For years I have tried to share with them that their selfish, greedy, lying cheating lifestyle is going to come back to bite them. Over the past few years I have witnessed them slowly descending into a living Hell of their own making. Their financial situation is worsening by the day. Their health is slowly ebbing away (once they were very active but now because of health problems they can go out less and less). They are suffering intensely. There is constant fighting in the home.

Even though they have abused me when I witness this catastrophe it is agonizing (agony is mush more intense than pain).

I want to gather them in my arms and explain to them that this is their own undoing and if they do not repent their future will only get worse. Alas, it will be to no avail. I know in my heart they will not listen. I know exactly how Jesus felt when he said: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who murders the prophets and stones [to death] those [messengers]who are sent to her [by God]! How often I wanted to gather your children together [around Me], as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling.” Matthew 23:37 Holy Bible, Amplified Version Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I am sure the Holy Spirit has spoken to their hearts but they laughed and said there is no God. Even now I am sure the Holy Spirit is convicting them but in their stubbornness and pride they refuse to repent of their wicked ways.

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 1:18

I recently read an article about a man who traveled across either Canada or the U.S and spoke with folks from all ages, finical groups and ethnic groups. His findings confirmed what they Bible says when it says that as you do unto others, so too will it be done unto you. It also says that when you obey Jehovah He will bless you seven times. When you disobey Jehovah, He will curse you seven times.

And if by these things you are not turned to Me, but act with hostility against Me, then I also will act with hostility against you, and I will strike you seven times for your sins. Leviticus 26:23-25 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I am seeing it in my family and it is like a knife piercing my heart.

Are you living a lying, cheating,conniving, back biting, self centered life right now?

Beware, Jehovah is a God of justice and you will suffer much more than you gain in the long run. It may take years or it may take decades but Jehovahs justice will prevail. And when that justice happens, there is no conning Him, no plea bargaining or parole. Justice will be served to its fullest extent. I have seen it happen repeatedly through the last decade with numerous others so do not laugh and say it will not happen to you.

Gods justice will be done in Gods time, in Gods way. You will not escape it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) send the Holy Spirit to convict the wicked ones of their evil ways unto repentance so they do not continue to suffer in their lives for their obstinance and cheating of others. May this be done so they do not suffer the supreme price for their evil in the damnation of eternal torment in Hell. 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. Amen

Focus to See the Light.

weary

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer from trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference between the ones walking in darkness and those of us that are walking in the light is that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, cares for us and about us.

We have a choice. We can carry the world on our shoulders, or we can say, “I give up, Lord; here’s my life. I give you my world, the whole world.” –Bruce Larson

They have no one that has the perfect healing touch. Jesus loves you.

Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we suffer the loss of a loved one we can always take our pain and sadness to Jesus. Do not forget how he weeped at His friends grave.

When we have lost our homes do not forget that Jesus was homeless.

When we are sick do not forget the sick Jesus healed.

When we have been betrayed do not forget how one of His own disciples betrayed Him. When our family and or friends reject us because of our walk towards our heavenly home do not forget how Jesus’ own family rejected and bitterly mocked Him.

When we suffer from exhaustion do not forget how exhausted Jesus was from his preaching and healing.

When we are facing death from a slow disease killer do not forget how Jesus knew about the type of death He must suffer.

Because Jesus walked amongst us He has experienced everything we have and so much more.

Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. —George Müller

So when we are experiencing our difficulties remember to focus on He who is the light of the world. He will comfort you, heal you, encourage you and walk with you through it all because He loves you.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. –Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my world with Your Divine love, assurance, comfort and strength in my darkest moments. I praise You for this blessing in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Can do Nothing Without Prayer.

a-praying-man

 “He will pray to God, and He shall be favorable to him, So that he looks at His face with joy; For God restores to man His righteousness [that is, his right standing with God—with its joys]. Job 33:26 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Some come quick, some come slow but never give up.

Some, it is sad to say, will never come true because of the resistance from those concerned.

I am, of course, referring to intersessionary prayer.

It has taken me thirty years of daily intersessionary prayer for my family.

Most resist the Holy Spirits prodding but one has returned to going to church twice a week, reading their Bible, praying and a complete change of attitude and behavior. Please do not insult Jehovah and write it off as a coincidence. You have no idea how vehemently they opposed anything to do with Christianity after some bad experiences with some stone throwers at various churches they attended.

We can do nothing without prayer. All things can be done by importunate prayer. It surmounts or removes all obstacles, overcomes every resisting force and gains its ends in the face of invincible hindrances. –E. M. Bounds

The same can be said when we fall (and because we are all sinful folks we all fall no matter how strong our faith is) and sincerely repent. Jehovah gladly restores our relationship with Him and our hearts dance with ecstatic joy.

A non-praying Christian is an oxymoron. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with hearing my prayers and in You kind graciousness always answering them in You magnificent way, in You wise timing. I thank you in the name of the best answered prayer of all our loving Savior that brings us unto You through His sacrifice Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands.

WAIT UPON GOD

 Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. And he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. So he looked this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. And when he went out the second day, behold, two Hebrew men were fighting, and he said to the one who did the wrong, “Why are you striking your companion?” Then he said, “Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you intend to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?” So Moses feared and said, “Surely this thing is known!” When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian; and he sat down by a well. Exodus 2:11-15 Holy Bible  New King James Version

Taking matters into your own hands leads to disaster. Depending upon Jehovah leads to success. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Revenge is where you want to hurt somebody worse for doing you wrong. Then they get some family and friends and get you back worse. After that you get some of your family and friends and extract even worse revenge on the perpetrators.

That is how wars start.

Even today in many parts of the world there are groups that hate each other because of something that was done centuries or even eons ago.

When I was tree planting and we had some Africans working with us we could not have certain groups in the same camp. If they were they would try to kill each other on site with axes, shovels and what ever they could get their hands on. It is insanity at its worst.

In the United States the Hatfields and Macoys was a real event that lasted about a hundred years. In Canada we had the Black Donlleys which ended in a bloody massacre.

 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for God’s wrath [and His judicial righteousness]; for it is written [in Scripture], “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The Christian is to pray for the perpetrators to be moved unto repentance and have faith that if they persist in their evil, wicked ways Jehovah will punish them appropriately.

I have witnessed Jehovahs vengeance against those who wronged my and I can assure you it is a terrifying site to see.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for being the wisest and fairest Judge of them all and for vindicating me in You time and in Your way. Please bring all those who have unfairly persecuted me to a repentant heart so as to avoid Your terrible judgment. I humbly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge on the day of judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

That is Surpassingly Good.

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

 For God [who is the source of their prophesying] is not a God of confusion and disorder but of peace and order.1 Corinthians 14:33 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

When I was a teacher there were many times my teaching plans failed miserably. During break I would sit down alone in the stairwell and pray for Jehovahs guidance. I would return with a feeling of peace and return to the classroom during the second half of the class and we would be rocking. The students caught on fast and it would be a great class.

This scenario has been repeated numerous times in my walk towards Heaven and can only be contributed to one thing: It was a divine blessing of peace and wisdom from Jehovah.

There is no situation so chaotic that God cannot from that situation, create something that is surpassingly good. Handley C. G. Moule

Does it seem as if nothing is making sense in your world right now? You may be surprised at just what Jehovah is doing behind the scenes that you are not even aware of.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for speaking to me in Divine wisdom and for guiding me into unseen places by my eyes that You know exactly what You are doing. I extol You in the name of He who lead His disciples so wisely Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Would Rather Stand by Christ.

the-lord-is-my-strength

You make us an object of contention to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh [at our suffering] among themselves. Psalm 80:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Everybody that has been a Christian long enough has experienced it. Contention means fighting. We have all had and or have neighbours, co-workers, family and old friends fight with us because they hate Christ and all who belong to Him. They will sabotage our work, try to cause fights in our relationships, do anything to hamstring our walk towards Christ. Personally speaking my worst foes have been my own family. When we experience trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares they bitterly laugh at us and mock us (if they can do it in public and or on social media all the better).

When this occurs take it to Jesus in sincere deep prayer. He understands because it has happened to Him when He walked amongst us. I, personally find it deeply sorrowful to witness this because it clearly states both in the Bible and in the non-secular world the Law of Reciprocation. That means as you do unto others will be done back to you seven times. So what they are doing to you know is going to come back to bite them seven times worse when they are at their most weakest moments. I have seen it played out too many times to count and it is pitiful. Then they always cry: “Why is this happening to me?

” I would rather stand by Christ and be laughed at than be cast into Hell with the in crowd. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your comfort, strength and assurance when the wicked ones unfairly attack me and make my life difficult. I praise You in the name of He who was constantly unfairly attacked all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Reliable and Trustworthy

true-friendship

 

 Let us seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word].Hebrews 10:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we become Christians we confess Christ as our Savior, King and best Friend.

We have all had friends that have let us down and even back stabbed us.

When Jesus is our bestest friend He is reliable and trust worthy. He never lets us down or back stabs us. His word is law. He promises to always be there with us and for us. He never lets us down. During our trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares we cling to His promise and it strengthen us to endure the hard times. As we progress in our walk with Him we become more confident in Him because He has proven Himself to be reliable and trustworthy.

Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength]. Romans 12:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We have all received conflicting and bad advice about our careers from others.

When we accept Christ as our King we follow the path He has chosen for us with hope (Hope in this manner is confidence in His divine guidance.) Many times He leads us where we do not understand where He is leading us but we trust in Him more and more along the journey because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy and reliable so far.

As death approaches us we are not worried about the unknown or the torment of Hell because we are confident in our hope that He as our Savior will be there to greet us to our Heavenly home. That is because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy and reliable all of our lives.

Jehovah promises and He always delivers on His promises. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to me in Your divine guidance in every aspect of my life. I praise You for this precious treasure in the name of my faithful king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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