But You Did.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

 

And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.” (Sarah was listening in the tent door which was behind him.) Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age; and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’  Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid. And He said, “No, but you did Genesis 18:10-15 New King James Version

 

Notice how when Sarah heard Jehovah was promising to do the impossible  Sarah insulted Jehovah by laughing. When Jehovah called her out on it she denied it. Is that not a stupid thing to do?

 

But, how many times do we do the same thing?

When Jehovah promises to do what we consider impossible we insult Him and laugh and say:” No way, there is no way You and accomplish such a thing it is impossible!”

Is that not a lack of faith?

Jehovah is not angry with us because He knows our minds cannot grasp His true awesomeness and power.

 

When we commit an offence against another and or Jehovah how many times do we deny it even when we know it is a blatant lie?

So many times I have felt like banging someone’s head against the wall and screaming you know what you did so stop lying.

Now I have learned to just state the fact and walk away. They know they are not getting away with it and it prevents a lot of frustration and anger.  The problem is left in Jehovahs hands and as much as they try to deny it with Him, He will deliver true justice to the offender.

Concerning us, as much as we disbelieve Jehovahs promises they will come to pass. When they do our awe, respect and love for Him grows as does our faith in Him.

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

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (The Lord our Provider) for the countless blessing You have so generously bestowed upon this child of Yours. Please forgive me when in lack of faith I doubt Your powerful love and ability to bless me and fulfill Your holy promises unto me. I exalt You in the name of He who fulfilled His promise when He did the impossible and rose from the dead to become our Divine King and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

H.O.M.E.

I am looking forward to being here.

What do you look forward to experiencing when you go home? What do you think Heaven will be like? I look forward to going home.

H=Home is Heaven. It is where we will be with our beloved family and friends and with our most beloved, Jesus, forever. There we will meet new friends and everybody will share joyous meals together. It will not matter your race, if you are tall or short, fat or skinny, boy or girl. There will be no rich or poor there. We will all be in joyful harmony together. No family fights there.

O= Overjoyed to be where we will face no more sorrow or pain. We shall be constantly over filled with joy every moment for eternity. There will be joy being with Jesus. There will be joy being with old and new friends. There will be joy in a truly fulfilling career Jesus has planned just for us.

M=Meditation, where we can truly sit at the feet of Jesus and share in His marvelous wisdom. It will be a never ending education where we will run to class in eager anticipation of drinking in the wisdom of the greatest teacher. Imagine sitting at the feet of Noah and Moses sharing incredible stories with us. There will be no tests we will be graded on because what we eagerly learn will become a part of us.

E=Employment, this where we will all be employed with a specific career that will be fulfilling and we will look forward to going to forever more. No getting laid off there. No retirement there. Everyone will have a special job suited just for you waiting for you.

Oh how I look forward to going home.

How about you?

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 New International Version

This is what I believe our home will be like. I can’t even imagine what our mansion Jesus has prepared for us looks like. Just think no mortgage or foreclosure there. No burglars or fires or storms to destroy that home. We will always be safe and secure there.

I have not even got into all the fun we will have playing with all the animals there.

Although we look forward to going to Heaven to be with Jesus when we die, we should work hard to bring as many with us as we can. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh sweet Jesus Pryyand (Jesus our best friend) I do ever so much look forward to that special time spent with You and the rest of Your holy family in Heaven.

I long to sit at your feet and listen to Your delicious words of wisdom.

I can’t wait to see what wonderful career You have planned for me in this fantastic kingdom to serve You.

What a privilege it will be to share a meal with all the saints of Your incredible family.

I wait in eager anticipation in the name of our great, mighty and loving king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The More Amazed I Am.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” Romans 15:4 New King James Version

 

The more I read and understand the Bible the more amazed I am at how reverent it is in my life.

 

For example since learning in the book of Titus to warn a troublemaker twice, if they refuse to listen have nothing to do with them I have a lot less stupid arguments. I come to understand that they are their happiest when causing trouble.

When reading about Joshua and how he endured forty years in the desert because of the disobedient Israelites he ended up enjoying the gifts of a fruitful life in the promised land.

Whenever I get discouraged and read the Bible the Holy Spirit always leads me to encouraging verses or to situations where people in the Bible endured hardships and prospered.

For example I learned that when the disciples were in the storm and called out to Jesus He rescued them. He allowed them to encounter the storm to teach them to depend more upon Him. That is a great lesson for me.

 

Truly, the more I read the Bible the more amazed I am how much I see myself in its pages.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for the amazing blessing of Your incredible book of knowledge, the Bible. Thank you for being so gracious as to open my mind and heart to the wisdom therein and to understand the experiences of those who have gone before me. I give thanks in the name of he who taught so much by quoting and explaining the scriptures Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What Is the Difference Between?

God loves each of

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 New International Version

What is the difference between our Heavenly and our earthly?

Our Heavenly Father loves us unconditionally.

Sad to say, I believe there is more dysfunctional families than there is “normal” families.

 

Our Father disciplines us for our best interest.

How many times do our earthly parents demand we do what they want, not caring what we want?

Our Heavenly Father always is there and always cares about our personal problems.

How many parents are there that you can talk about personal problems with?

Our Heavenly Father heals our emotional pains.

How many parents are there that even care about our problems or are even the cause of them?

Our Heavenly Father knows where we are best suited in life and gives us divine purpose in life.

How many parents talk about their children’s career with them and help them to where they are best suited in life?

Now I am not belittling loving parents, they are to be appreciated, loved and respected.

However, no matter how good they are, they will never be as good as our loving  Heavenly Father.

Now if you come from a dysfunctional family or an abusive one it will be hard to understand and believe this but just keep praying and having an open heart. He will heal your wounds and guide you into the most awesome love affair there is.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Heavenly Father) for the wonderful privilege of being bestowed with the most awesome poppa there ever could be. I exalt you in the name of my magnificent loving big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

This is the Only Way.

HOLY SPIRIT ENCOURAGER

The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Psalms 103:8 New International Version

Think of earthly families okay.

Whether you like to admit it or not, we do inherit undesirable traits from our parents like alcoholism, short temperedness, and of course stubbornness.

Now, the more we submit to Christ, the more we become like Christ.

This is how someone who was cold hearted becomes compassionate, more patient and loving.

This is the only way to conquer our undesirable personality trait.

I used to be very spiteful and hold a grudge for a long time.

Now, when someone wrongs me, I sincerely take it to Jesus and leave it there.

As a consequence my life is filled with more peace and joy.

Only Christ can conquer our undesirable traits.

Then why does He give them to us in the first place you may ask?

It is because we see it is only by His grace and love that these undesirables are conquered and that leads us to exuberant joyful praise to Him. And of course this oozes out of our daily life.

This is, by the way, why it is my personal opinion, psychiatry miserably fails miserably. Their limited reasoning and dope pushing (prescribing drugs like candy) does not and cannot solve the problem.

IMPORATANT There are cases where drugs are necessary like if you have schizophrenia or some other serious mental disability you will have to take medication for the rest of your life. I have seen too many who thought they were better and stopped taking their medication that led to disastrous results.  I see those who stay on their medication lead productive lives and when participating in Christian Bible studies become very calm, joyful and peaceful

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropeka (God our healer)  for freeing me from the destructive chains of __________ (name any addictions or destructive behavior traits you had that Jehovah has freed you from). I thank you in the name of He whose power cast out the demons in so many when he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

.   Editors note: it was only when I admitted to Jehovah that the demons of alcoholism were to strong for me to conquer and please rescue me that those horrible chains were smashed and it has been many years since I have touched a drink

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropeka (God our healer)  release me from the prison of ________ (write down your any destructive addictions or behavior traits you need to be freed from). I in deepest need request this in the name of He who has promised to set all the prisoners free Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Only If You Are.

HUNGERY FOR GOD

You will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:29 New King James Version

Do you notice the important part in this equation?

It is IF.

Only if you seek a relationship with Jehovah will He bless you with one.

If you only come to Him with your problems and expect Him to be a magical genie and solve all your problems without you taking the imitative and obeying His guidance you are wasting your time. He will not listen.

 

If you think you can only spend and hour a week with Him in some building and foolishly believe you have a relationship with Him you are grossly mistaken.                           It is only when you spend time every day with Him, reading His word, praising Him, thanking Him and obeying His guidance when He wisely blesses you with it will you be blessed with developing a strong loving relationship with Him. The amazing thing is you will never completely know Him. He will surprise you from time to time with new revelations of Him.

My best time of the day is when I read His word and pray Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my best friend) for the amazing blessing of always enjoying the most amazing relationship there ever could be with You my best friend, with our beloved Father and with our beloved teacher, healer, comforter and strengthener the Holy Spirit. I exalt You in Your loving name. Amen.

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

I Would Commit My Cause.

TRUST IN HIM

To God I would commit my cause. Job 5:8 New King James Version

I believe this is the most important thing we can do in our life.

Before we make any decisions in life we need to commit it to the Lord, trust in Him and be obedient to His answer.

Let us say you want to buy a certain house but you feel the Lord saying no. Later you find the house to be in bad neighbourhood or maybe you lose your job and cannot make the payments, then what?

Let us say you want to marry a woman after a short romance but feel God says no. Later you find she is very materialistic and would spend you into the poor house (I have seen this quite a few times).

 

Maybe you want a certain job in another part of the country but the Lord says no. Then you find out that they have numerous labour complaints against them or that they are closing shop in six months.

The list goes on.

It can be quite the struggle as I well know. Sometimes it felt like my head was going to explode because there was such a fight going on inside. One side vehemently wants the thing I desired while the other side wanted to be obedient to God.

Prayer and obedience to Jehovahs answer is the best guidance move of your life.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shamah (God is with us) for blessing me with Your Holy presence that guides me in the right choices in life even though at times many of the are very difficult to surrender to. I am oh very appreciative to You and say thank you in the name of the best guidance councilor ever Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Does That Answer Your Question?

THE THREE PARTS OF PRAYER

 

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).

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows James 1:27 New King James Version

It has been three weeks since I did volunteer work at a seniors home because of a flu outbreak.

I prayed to Jehovah to bless me with an answer if they wanted me to return.

That day as mom and I were doing errands she picked up a bundle of community newspapers and took them to the seniors home. I did not know she intended to do this.

As we were delivering the papers I encountered many of the residents and the staff I volunteer with. They were all very happy to see me and the staff informed me that the flu epidemic was over and they want me to return this week.

When I got home there was a feeling like Jehovah saying:” Does that answer your question?”

I laughed and thanked Him for His wonderful way of answering my prayer.

Now I have returned to volunteering at the seniors home and we are all very glad things have gotten back to “normal”.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our Healer) for healing those sick in the seniors home and thank you that I can at long last return to serving you there to bring glory to Your marvelous name. I exalt you in the name of He who healed Peters sick mother Jesus Christ. Amen.

Good Shall Come to Thee.

FULLFILLED DESIRES

I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken. Psalm37:25 New King James Version

To be a servant of Jesus means we give up a lot of the worlds luxuries and most times just survive, all be it comfortably but frugally.

This is good because we learn to depend upon Jehovah for our daily needs. Because He generously supplies them we grow deeper and deeper in love with Him and develop a deeper respect for Him.

 

As we age and are no longer able to serve Him as we did when young we have no government pension to fall back on and most times no savings in the bank.

Through His love and grace Jehovah always supplies for us in our old age just as He did in our younger days.

 

Three times I worked hard, lived frugally and saved.

Three times I was wiped out. Since living for Christ, He has always supplied my every need (not necessarily my every want but definitely my every need).

Now I am getting old and my chance of getting a good work contract is nil.

In fear of my future I prayed to Him about my future with no money and no job.

Each time I did, there was a dream where I was led into an apartment. It was comfortable and spacious but the one thing there always hit me was the cupboards were always full and the lady that led there would look at me and smile and say:” This is yours.” She said it like I was not renting or purchasing the place but rather that is was given for me to live in all the rest of my days. Then I would wake up.

That day while doing Bible reading a verse like the one in this article would jump out at me.

I like Jehovahs retirement plan.

“Live to please God, and He will breathe on thee His peace. Seek His glory, and He will make thy heart His home. Do His will, and thereby good shall come to thee.”  F. B. Meyer

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for always providing for Your child in his service to his loving King. Thank you for promising and keeping Your promise to always take care of Your children whom You cherish so deeply. I give thanks for this blessing in the name of He who taught about the birds in the sky Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It Will Be Given to Him.

Christ, WILL LEAD

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 New King James Version

Our Heavenly Beloved does not belittle you when you ask for guidance (you know like: What’s the matter are you stupid or something, oh come on, figure it out yourself, how many times must I explain this to you).

He encourages you to question both Him and His guidance in your life.

The more you respectfully question Jehovah the more he reveals Himself to you. The more he reveals Himself to you the more you love Him and respect Him which will make you worship Him all the more.

 

The more you respectfully question His guidance in your life the less problems you will have which will make you more grateful to Him which will make you worship Him all the more.

It is not a one off experience, it takes a lifetime.

I know this certainly is true in my life.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God is my teacher) for being so patient with this occasional dunce when I am slow to learn. Thank you my Beloved for enlightening me in the divine way in my life. I extol you in the name of the greatest rabbi ever Jesus Christ. Amen.

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