It Happens to All of Us

GUARD YOUR INPUT

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

It happens to all of us.

There are folks that abuse us at some point in our lives.

Some repent and some do not.

Irregardless, the wound cuts deep and there is bitterness in our hearts. If we are not careful the root will grow deep like a dandelion root. It will poison our spiritual life, our mental life and our physical life until it destroys us. The root grows too deep for us to rip it out. We need to call upon the Master Gardener for that.

His name is Jesus and you can call Him anytime at P.R.A.Y.

Do not think this will be a one time call. Sometimes the seed comes back and we need to call the Master Gardener again. Sometimes those weeds will never be completely eradicated until we reach the Gates of Heavens home for us.

Jesus is the Master Gardener. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka :God our healer, for blessing me with Your Divine healing. Some of the wounds were deep and infested my soul for decades. The only way healing occurred was to place the infection at Your feet and trust in Your gracious healing. I thank you in the name of the grand Healer Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

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

It Only Causes Harm

God  loveS populations,

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret it only causes harm. Psalm 37:8New King James Version

Holding onto anger affects your loving relationships. It can cause you to lash out at the innocent ones, especially those you love and end up destroying relationships.

How many siblings are there that do not even talk with each other any more because of anger?

 

Holding onto anger adversely affects your health and only sends you to an early grave.

I have seen many who are my age yet their health is shot and they look thirty years older than they are.

I have seen many go to their graves angry, bitter and lonely.

If your heart is filled with anger, how can you love others, including Christ?

If you cannot love others, how can others love you?

What a sad waste of life.

Do not hold onto anger. It hurts you more than the one you are angry with and many times brings them great delight to watch you suffer. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now many times the cut is too deep for you to heal yourself. That is when you need good Christian councilors and to pray reverently. It may take years to heal.

It once took me five years to heal from a deep painful wound unfairly inflicted upon me by someone in the family. It was only through Christian counseling that I learned how to handle it.

Prayer:  Please Jehovah Heseh (God our healer) to any and all who are injured by life’s vicious bows to good solid Christian councilors who can and will heal them through Your divine grace. I humbly beseech You in the name of He whose love heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you 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

He Cannot Do Them All.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7 King James Version

DARKNESS

Believe it or not, Jehovah cannot answer all our prayers.

Oh he has the power and ability to but he is restrained by unco-operating sprits.

So let us say you deeply want reconciliation with someone who has hurt you and is unrepentant or that you feel repentant to someone you hurt.

God gives each of us free will.

So someone who is arrogant or bitter He cannot force to reconcile. There was someone who repeatedly abused me when I was a child.

Numerous times I tried to reconcile with them when I became a man only to have them cruelly laugh at me and deny the events even occurred, despite there were numerous official records of the incidents.

I prayed hard core for many years for reconciliation to happen.

He died a very slow and painful death, unrepentant til the end.

So it is not that God breaks His promise, it is that there are those who refuse to obey His grace.

When this happens, do not blame God but blame the arrogant unrepentant one.

Then there are times we ask for what we deeply desire and He does not give it to us. It is because it is not what He has planned for us.

For example, when I was a teenager all the way into my thirties I prayed every day for the blessing of having a wife, children, home and steady job.

Now in my middle years I believe this blessing was withheld from me because He intended me to serve Him in many various places across the country and indeed around the world in numerous difficult and dangerous situations.

He has blessed me with loving Christians throughout though that are closer than my own family and there are abundant cherished memories of the good accomplished in His name and through His name.

There are times when we ask for things that are not good for us so of course he cannot give them to us.

I asked for a contract in another part of the country that I really wanted to see because of its history and culture.

Instead the Lord directed me to the opposite end of the country. It was later revealed that there was a lot of infighting in the company and that it ended up closing three months after I was supposed to start.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for all the marvelous blessings You have bestowed upon me and for instructing me that there are some things that You cannot do due to unreceptive hearts. Please Jehovah always give me a heart that is receptive to Your will in all my ways in all my days. I sincerely ask this in the name of he who was obedient to Your will all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
. May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
