Only to Learn That

JESUS CAN

 They were shaken because He was indignant and angry. Psalm 18:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times in our walk with Christ we have the wrong foundations. Because of this our house is unstable and pron to destruction when affliction, trials, trouble and sorrows come unto us.

In order to prevent this from happening Jehovah must tear down those foundations.

Working in construction building houses I learned that everything must be lined up in building the foundation. If it does not the house is faulty and pron to demolishing when storms hit. That is why most houses built about a hundred years ago are still solid while new houses have so much problems. Those a hundred years ago built the houses to last so they took extra care in how they were built. Many today just slap houses together as cheaply as they can get away with to make profit. When they storms hit we see the end results of who was the better builder.

Jesus is the builder of our house (our spirits) and will not allow faulty construction of it. When we start to stray from the masters architects plans He shakes the house to reconstruct it.

He has shook many of my foundational beliefs to get rid of them because they were hampering my walk with Him. I praise Him for doing it.

“We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking only to learn that it is God shaking them.” — Charles West

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kanna (The Lord is Jealous) for being so jealous as to never allow another architect to alter the plans You have for this child’s building You so loving built. Thank you for destroying any layers which will cause this building to collapse into complete and total destruction. I praise You in the name of the master builder Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

On the Alter Of

And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]Ephesians 4:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unfortunately, one of my bad dispositions is letting go of a grudge. Being more mature I have learned to place it at the feet of Jesus. He heals the wound and avenges the wrong doer.

Many times however, it is played out in my head where they are shamed while yours truly look like the hero. This childish fantasy is surely played out in all of our heads. Rather than dwell on the wound others have inflicted from personal experience, it is better to listen to old hymns that praise Jehovah. This fills the heart with joy rather than anger and bitterness.

Now of course the wound may need to be healed by going to righteous Christian councilors to help deal with the lingering pain.

Those that nurture the grudge are cultivating weeds of hate and anger which suffocate the beautiful plants of love and joy. They become mean, bitter angry old men and women in their later years.

Of course this devastating disease cause great harm to both the mental and physical body.

It also affects the relationship with Christ. Because He is love and there is hate and anger in the heart the two are not comparable.

I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: PleaseYAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal the cuts both superficial and the gougingly deep ones that have been inflicted upon me.

Please empower me to concentrate on all Your loving attributes instead of foolishly wasting my time rerunning the event over in my head where I glorify myself while shaming the offender. That is such a wast of time and is very childish.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Three Things That Only God Knows

                                                                  

I do not know, [only] God knows. 2 Corinthians 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been so many times when trials and tribulations have struck without warning in my life (matter of a fact almost all the time). I call out unto Jehovah and ask Him why I had no warning and why it was happening. He is silent. That is a good thing. He does not inform me because there would be terror in my heart at the foreordained knowledge of what was coming. He does not inform me because either He is in the process of molding me through this event or He is testing me through it.

He does not allow me to know how long it will last. There is good reason for that. If I knew how long it would last it may seem too long a time or I would become complacent in the knowledge that it will only last for a while.

So, when you are going through and difficulty and Jehovah is silent, there is a good reason for it.

No, He is not angry with you, although this may be an event to discipline you.

No, He has not deserted you, He loves you too much to ever desert you.

“There are three things that only God knows: the beginning of things, the cause of things and the end of things.” Welsh Proverb

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with events in my life that You have used to burn off the dross to create in me a righteous heart and life of dedication unto You. Thank you for not forewarning me of these events becasue they would be too terrible for me to grasp at the time. Thank you that through these events You strengthen my faith in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day.

Goes Before Destruction

CANNOT OUTRUN

Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 New International Version

haughty: having or showing the insulting attitude of people who think that they are better, smarter, or more important than other people Merriam Webster dictionary                     

Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment. Proverbs 12:19New International Version

Have you ever met anyone who is arrogant and spewing forth lies?

I have met a good number of the “new Agers” as well as university students and professors that are like that.

 

When you gracefully, wisely and meekly confront them about their lies they become very agitated and aggressive. They start shouting at you.

The only reason anyone shouts at their opponent in a debate is to drown out the truth that their opponent is saying. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

The only people who get mad when you gracefully confront them with the truth are those living a lie. It stings them to their wicked heart and knocks them off their high horse. They will call you all kinds of names.

 

The reason people insult you is because they cannot defend their lies. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

They destroy themselves in public and pout about it and their pride slowly eats  them until they become angry and bitter.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with Your divine wisdom, grace and meekness when confronted with the wicked ones spewing forth their wicked poison. I humbly ask this in the name of He who always spoke the truth to those who try to live a lie Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                         

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

Give It All.

The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit  Psalm 34:18 New King James Version

 

Image

Whenever we encounter trials and tribulations (and we will) and we are at the end of our rope, that is when we are to let go and fall into the loving arms of our caring, healing and wise Father in Heaven.                                                                                                          

It took me many decades to learn this simple but powerful truth. If the lesson had of been learned there would have been much less difficulty in my life.                                                

His answer has come in many different ways. It could be a Bible verse, it could be a song or sermon or it could be a dream (whenever I have vivid dreams they are recorded on an MP3 and written down when I awaken the next morning. They have always had the answers. Maybe not that morning but within three days the answer was revealed to me.).

Do not be afraid to let it all out when you are frustrated, angry, or hurt. Jehovah can take it. Read how they let it all out in the Old Testament.                                                                  

Read how Moses let it out or Job. Be respectful though.                                                      

Now when He reveals to you the answer in order for the situation to be resolved you must be obedient otherwise it is useless.                                                                                            

So for example if you are suffering from kidney stones and it is revealed to you to stop drinking coffee, you must stop drinking coffee or the problem only gets worse.                  

Then do not blame God.                                                                                                

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for being so loving and wise that You are always approachable and bless me with abundant wisdom and resources to solve all my problems. I joyfully thank You in the name of He who always gave the correct medicine when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                

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

See the Difference?

That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment Matthew 5:21-22 King James Version

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 

I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sisterwill be subject to judgment. Matthew 5:22 New International Version.

This is why it is important to cross reference our Bibles.
In the King James where as it is missing in the New International Version.

Now concerning this passage

Just because we are Christians does not mean we do not have emotions like everybody else.

 

For anyone to try to manipulate you into feeling bad because you are angry with them for a just cause is destructive to you in your spiritual life, in your mental life and in your physical life.

Holding in anger is destructive and must be dealt with appropriately.  Sometimes that may means seeing a councilor.

If someone intentionally says or does something to anger you (it is noted that wives know the buttons to push to set off their husbands which I heard on a broadcast on Focus on the Family) then they need to get counseling because they have serious mental problems.

From my experience if they refuse to either stop it or get counseling then I stay as far away from them as I can get because they bring me nothing but grief.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer or deliverer) deliver me from the grips of unwarranted anger and from those who intentionally get their perverted pleasure in intentionally angering others. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked away from the scribes s when they tried to bait Him, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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