Peevish Discontented Minds

  The whole congregation of the Israelites [grew discontented and] murmured and rebelled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,and the Israelites said to them, Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and ate bread until we were full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this entire assembly with hunger.” (To understand Israel’s rebellious behavior, it is important to grasp the contrast between life in Egypt and nomadic life in the wilderness. Despite the hardships of slavery survival was not an issue in Egypt, where they were guaranteed food and other necessities. But the desert wilderness was hostile and unforgiving, and survival was an art. Desert nomads needed to understand the wilderness in order to stay alive; they had to learn, among other things, how to protect themselves from the weather, where to find water and pasture, and how to find and prepare scarce food, or live primarily from what their livestock could provide them. So the Israelites viewed every new problem they faced as life-threatening. Instead of looking back and taking comfort from God’s earlier miracles, they doubted God’s ability and willingness to help them. Their fears and doubts subsequently came to be expressed as irrational anger toward Moses. ) Exodus 16:2-3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many of us ask Jehovah for something but are never satisfied?

We ask for a job but when we get one we do not like the work because it is too hard or it is too boring.

We ask for a place to live but it is too far from the bus stop or grocery store or park.

We ask for direction in life but it is not where we want to go.

We desire good Christian friends but can always find fault with them.

I think the real reason we are discontented is because of greed. We want the best and nothing less is good enough for us.

Jehovah blesses with what we need not always with what we want. Joseph son of Jehovah

That is the ultimate insult of ungratefulness and a huge slap in the face to our loving generous Father in Heaven. More so for those of us that have walked with Christ for any length of time and so can reflect back at His previous provisions for us. Peevish discontented minds will find fault with that which has no fault in it but that it is too good for them.

Those that might be very happy often make themselves very miserable by their discontents. Matthew Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a grateful heart towards you and those around me for all the wonderful blessings You and those around me share with me every day. I ask this in the name of the greatest blessing of which I am eternally grateful for Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

You Do It.

 

 Let integrity and uprightness protect me Psalm 25:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Integrity means to have a firm adherence to a code of moral values. These will protect you from dishonour, jail and from being scammed. In other words you know what is right in Jehovahs eyes and you do it.

Once I was asked by a foreign agent representing many foreign teachers looking for a placement to give a review of a very bad school school I was teaching at. Because the truth was spoken and it was not very favourable the consequences were instant dismissal and threatened with jail if I refused to recant ( being a white round eye teaching in Asia you can bet that prison would not be a pleasant place to spend time in ) . Yes I was scared but stood my ground. The result was that the federal government became involved. Not only did I not do any time but was absolved of any wrong doing any time, however the owner of the school and his family were sentenced to five years in a federal prison. Later I could see the hand of Jehovah move in these events ( it was highly unusual for the federal government to become involved in a municipal affair. And, it was even higher unusual that a foreigner would be exonerated while a local went to prison).

“A godly mind prizes honor above worldly good.” Rembrandt

It also means not doing the wrong things.

Again, when I was in Asia there was ample opportunity that agents would get foreigners to forge documents for big companies that the quality of the product passes when in reality it is complete garbage. So, let us say that a company is selling dog food and its ingredient are toxic and cheap quality, they can kill the animal if it eats it. A foreigner will sign a document representing a company like say that sounds like Calmart. Then it is shipped out. When it arrives Calmart refuses to accept it but the Asian company threatens to sue because their representative signed the release forms ( when in reality it was a foreigner not even working for Calmart. The Asian agent paid the foreigners a lot of money. Even though I needed the money I refused. The others laughed at me for being a goody two shoes. Eventually the federal government in that Asian country became involved and sent undercover agents in to investigate. There was a huge round up with an enormous amount to foreigners sent to a federal prison for a very long time. My integrity saved me.

Now how do we gain this valuable asset?

We spend time reading our Bibles and requesting Jehovah bless us with opening our eyes to what is right and wrong in His divine eyes and the strength to obey Him, no matter what the cost.

I have seen many scammers get scammed in my life. I have seen many crooked ones fall into total destruction and a slow death in shame and humiliation because of their sin but I have seen many more of those who walk in integrity rise from the ashes into glory. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsori ( The Lord is my Strength )for blessing me with the strength to stand firm upon Your firm ground of Holy integrity so as to honour You and prevent certain disaster in my life. I praise You in the name of He who is the most high integrity Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass 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.

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.

He Will Pay Back Trouble.

cannot-outrun

 God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you. 2 Thessalonians 1:6 New International Version Holy Bible

Is there any trouble makers in your life right now?

You know they type, they are their happiest when they are causing trouble for everyone. When confronted about their despicable behavior they feign innocence, all the while laughing their wicked heads off on the inside. Many times it is a family member that is guilty of this which makes it all the worse.

Do not seek revenge nor feel anger towards them.

I know I feel anger towards them at first but then take it to Jehovah in prayer. He blesses me with peace and confidence that he is a just God and will repay seven time back to the perpetrator.

Then a deep feeling of pity for them envelopes me and I pray that the Holy Spirit convicts them unto repentance for their wicked behaviour before it is too late.

Sometimes they do repent sincerely and it is accepted graciously by me.

Sometimes they must still receive the punishment due to them ( for example if they ran a red light and hit my bicycle while drunk they must still face the consequences of their actions under the law).

Sometimes they just laugh at the “invisible boogy man God in the sky”.

As time slowly goes by I see the hand of Jehovah strike them with vengeance. Each time He inflicts His justice upon them it is worse than the previous one. Each time there is deep sorrow in my heart towards them for their arrogant foolishness as they needlessly suffer but I know there is nothing I can do about it.

Has someone intentionally done you wrong?

Yes you are to forgive them but you have every right to call down upon their head Jehovahs justice in the hopes that it will bring them unto repentance unto you, unto society and unto Jehovah.

Prayer: thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for the reassurance that there is no plea bargaining nor early parole for the wicked ones who delight in perpetrating evil wickedness upon innocent victims which many time the innocent suffer greatly because of. Please send the Holy Spirit unto them and convict them of their evilness to bring them to repentance before it is too late. I thank you and ask this in the name of the Supreme Judge of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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