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.

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.

In Old Age.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

 [Growing in grace] they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age . Psalm 92:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Bible

Just because you are old does not diminish your usefulness in service unto Jehovah.

There are many organizations like Habitat for Humanity that would gladly appreciate your skills. Even if you have no experience they still need helping hands. I worked with them for the first time recently and the old fellas taught me a great deal and the fellowship was great.

Perhaps you have been a housewife, well I am sure there are community programs where they need you to teach cooking (the old home made meals are still the best).

If you have a vehicle there are many elderly folks that need a ride for doctors appointments and to take the shopping. There are hiking trails that need volunteers for maintenance of the trails.

There are literacy programs that need volunteers to teach others to read.

You can go and help out at seniors homes, being a volunteer there believe me I see a lot of lonely folks that would love to have someone come in for a visit.

The whole time you can share with others your walk with Christ. Personal testimony is still the best evangelical tool available.

Carpe diem (Seize the day)

Plant your seed of kindness and love today so that you will be blessed with an abundant harvest tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Not only will you be helping your community but ,by Gods grace, you will be guiding others into Jehovahs beautiful family.

There are so many lost, confused and lonely out there that need your help. Another blessing is that what goes around, comes around. When the time comes when you need help ( and we all do occasionally) you will have a support network there to help you as you have helped others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for walking with me through out my life and teaching me so many amazing things. Thank you for walking with me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Please bless me with opportunities to pass this Divine wisdom on to others who need guidance and support. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of He who is my constant support and guide through life, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Question is, Who Listens?

gods-word

 Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience]. Psalm 34:11 Amplified Bible

No, that is not your conscience speaking to you, that is the Holy Spirit.

The devil is an expert at twisting the truth into a lie so if you depend upon your “conscience” you are easy prey for Him.

Then how will you know if it is the Holy Spirit or the devil?

The answer is in developing a deep personal relationship with Jehovah by reading your Bible and obeying what it says.

From my personal experience when I am reading the Bible and a verse jumps out at me, that is the Holy Spirit speaking to me. I stop reading and pray for enlightenment. Then he guide me to understanding the Bible verse in context to what He is saying about my life.

Another way is to listen to good sermon like on sermonaudio and reading good Christian books like can be found on sites like goodread and https://www.gutenberg.org (personally my preference is for the old classics). Of course we should also have godly Christian councilors.

The problem I have sadly witnessed too frequently is that even when others know Jehovah is speaking to them the deliberately chose to ignore Him because he is telling them something they do not want to hear. They want their way, not Jehovahs. That is a sure recipe for disaster. Then when catastrophes occur they go cry babying to Jehovah and ask why He is doing this to them.

God is speaking to all of us, all the time. The question is not, to whom does God talk? The question is, who listens? Neale Donald Walsch

Are you experiencing difficulties in your life right now?

Are you listening to Jehovah as He is speaking to you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with patiently teaching me to be wise, gracious, humble and meek like my Beloved King Jesus. Thank you for the tools You have blessed me with to receive an ever deepening of these blessings. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Rabbi of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

At Compound Interest.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 One of the advantages of getting old is seeing the hand of Jehovah in others lives during the course of a few decades.

If then, you act with hostility toward Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times in accordance with your sins.” Leviticus 26:21 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed many of the proud and arrogant laugh as they foolishly believe they can live their lives as they see fit and are cruel and dishonest with their neighbours. Through the course of time their mental, physical and spiritual health deteriorates until they are living a daily life of living hell all alone. They are angry and bitter. The strange thing is that they know if they repent at least they will have mental and spiritual health but because they are arrogant they refuse, even unto death. At the moment of death they are alone and terrorized knowing that they are doomed to be cast into eternal Hell where they belong. There is a deep sense of doom and gloom in the room and you cannot wait to get out of there. It is a very sad and pitiful site to see no matter how bad they were to you.

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the [steadfast] lovingkindness which He swore to your fathers. He will love you and bless you. Deuteronomy 7:12-13 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed those that love Jehovah and are obedient unto Him. They are kind, loving, joyous and generous. They age gracefully and are surrounded with a swarm of others to constantly help them when they need help in their old age. They are enveloped with an aura of peace, love, joy and gentleness. You cannot help but love to be around them and help them. When it is time for them to pass on to the other side they are surrounded by loved ones. There is a peace in the room when they pass on. You cannot help but cry with joy at the honour of being their friend and look forward to being with them in Heaven.

“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your divine guidance to walk in Your Heavenly light. Thank you that the fruit of this light is love, joy and peace and with the numerous opportunities to share this light with others in a cold, cruel dark world. I praise you in the name of the Prince of Light Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Is Not Independent

WRONG WALK

 Nevertheless, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 1 Corinthians 11:11 Amplified Bible

This is an important verse for all those belonging to the satanic cults.

These cults come in two forms.

One form is where any religion wrongfully teaches that women are to be completely submissive unto man. They are totally domineered by man. That is satanic and obviously wrong in Jehovahs eyes. Woman is to compliment man which means they are to work together as a team for both of their benefits.

The other satanic cult is womens lib where they teach the satanic teaching that woman does not need a man (especially in the rearing of children). Statistics prove that children that are raised without a father are more troubled as adults and most are regularly in trouble with the law. And yes, children also need a loving mother as much as they need a loving father.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with Your Divine aceptence of me into Your Holy Family. May all families follow Your lead in the proper manner in which to thrive as a family here on earth. I thank You and humbly ask this of You in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I See it too Often.

“We take care of our possessions for our children. But of the children themselves we take no care at all. What an absurdity is this! Form the soul of thy son aright, and the rest will be added hereafter.” John Chrysostom

Far too often I see parents and especially grandparents spoiling their children and grandchildren with giving them everything they want. This is ham stinging them for adulthood.

Then when they become adults they are self centered, arrogant, rude and selfish and the parents and grand parents cry baby about their attitude and behavior.

I have seen it far too often.

Do not be concerned about the physical inheritance you are leaving your children but rather the moral and spiritual one which is far more important. Joseph- Anthony: Green

If you want success you have to work for it.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 Holy Bible, New International Version

Meanwhile they spend so little time with their children doing family things like sharing chores around the house (which teaches them responsibility), sitting down and just talking with them (and yes, listening to them), having picnics with them, going for walks with them where they can bond. They lecture their children while turning around and doing the very things they lecture their children not to do.

Every parents motto is not to be ”do as I say” but rather “watch me”.Joseph- Anthony: Green What type of inheritance are you leaving?

“Train your child in the way in which you know you should have gone yourself.” Charles H. Spurgeon Prayer:

Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for being the most loving Father whose guidance and discipline has moulded me into being appreciative and respectful toward You and to cherish this gracious gift. Please bless all parents and grand parents to emulate Your wise method of being a righteous parent. I give thank and pray for these blessings in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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