Wisdom is Having.

listen-to-our-wise-elders

Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I love to learn and am always willing to watch, listen, learn and be thankful towards my mentors. As a result there have been many disasters averted in my life.

A wise man listens, learns and obeys . Joseph- Anthony: Green

As for being self disciplined that requires the blessing of the Holy Spirit. We are all weak from time to time and need His infinite strength to get us through some trial and temptations. This as well has helped me avert many disasters in my life.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Knowledge comes from experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have seen far too many idiots continue upon the same road to disaster. No it is not repeating the same mistake.

The first time it is a mistake, after that it is just pain stupid and stubborn. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have seen way too many needlessly suffer because of this.

When I was treeplanting I would take the rookies and teach them the proper way to plant ( there was a lot more to it than just slamming a tree into the ground ) at the geginnig of the season.. I was not paid to do this but did it because of the graciousness in my heart. As they honed their skills they began to plant more trees. We were paid by how many trees we planted so they began to make a lot more money. Then there were always the: “ I know, I knows.’ ). These are the ones that when I offered to teach them to plant they would always say I know what I am doing, I know. As a result they would work twice as hard as the ones that listened to me and make one third the amount of money.

Stupidness and stubbornness go hand in hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

There is a price to pay for stupidity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for all of Your patience and wisdom you have blessed me with through my walk with You. It has been a true God send in my life. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The True Baptism

HOLY SPIRITS POWER

. He will baptize you [who truly repent] with the Holy Spirit. Matthew 3:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are some who get baptized for marriage ( so one of the intended is a member of a church and the only way they can get married is if the other one gets baptized into that church ). That is not true baptism.

I have seen some get baptized for social reasons or financial ones ( I only do business with this church so you must be a member or if you want Jehovahs blessings you must be baptized first). They want to fit in with a certain crowd. That is not true baptism.

I have see and experienced true baptism. When it occurs those baptized are on fire for Christ. They cannot stop talking about Him and praising Him.

For me it was at a revival in a big tent. The minister asked for any willing to step forward and talk with Jehovah privately. When that was occurring I felt as if my whole being was filled with an amazing light. I could not stop shouting my love for Christ. Afterwards many in the crowd came to me and informed me that I was glowing like a light bulb ( I am not saying that, that is what will happen every time, just my own personal experience).

Now THAT was a true baptism.

I do not believe you need water submission to be baptized, just a heart that surrenders to Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for redeeming me with Your awesome gift of the Holy Spirit. I laud You in the name of He whose sacrifice provided for this blessing Jesus Christ. Amen

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

No Long Pusses Allowed.

chief-duty

 Serve the Lord with gladness. Psalm 100:2 New King James Version

Have you ever seen the falsies?

You know the type, they walk around with their faces hanging down so low it looks like their chins is dragging the ground, while pretending to be in service unto Jehovah. It is vanity because they are saying to the world:”Look at how much I am suffering for the Lord. Aren’t I so holy.”

Jehovah is not conned by such simpleton behaviour. There is no long pusses allowed in service unto our beloved Father.

We have all met some one during our lives that we gladly bend over backwards to do anything for them because we have such a deep affection for them. Should we not emulate this behavior in service unto our Heavenly King?

And, if we so much in love with Him is a act of service or is it a gift of love and appreciation towards Him for all His never ending blessings he abundantly showers us with every day?

Now some times it is difficult in our service towards Him (just ask any childrens Sunday school teacher) but over all we are glad to be in a situation were we can serve our Lord as a gift of love and appreciation.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your awesome light of joy that fills my heart with Your treasured love and joy as I gladly serve You today in the service You guide me to. I praise You in the name of He who was Your supreme servant on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Will Never Understand It.

God loves each of

 For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. Ephesians 2:8-9 Holy Bible , Amplified Version.

We will never understand it. How Jehovah in His amazing love allowed His most cherished Son to be humiliated, beaten, tortured, mocked and allowed to die an agonizing death and be cast into hell for three days because of His awesome love for us.

Most of us were less than holy when He graciously came to us, indeed many of us were downright scoundrels.

Scoundrels make the best saints because they realize the magnificence of Jehovahs love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

In the world you have to earn it if you want it (except of course in “liberal” societies were the bums expect the government to do everything for them because of the “you owe me” attitude which is destroying some many societies in the world today). Yet Jehovah, in His miraculous love, came unto us with such an fabulous offer that we would be insane to refuse.

This, of course, is not just salvation but also an astounding love affair of which is impossible to match anywhere else. As we progress in this relationship he slowly burns off the dross (sometimes he expels destructive addictions and behaviour on His own and some times He walks through it with it with us) to mold us into a truly new creation. Those that formerly new us are stunned and confused about the change. Of course this process will continue until we reach our heavenly home. As a result our love, respect and admiration for Him is constantly expanding.

“I do not understand the mystery of grace; only that it meets us where we are and doesn’t leave us where it found us.” Anne Lamott

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the most wonderful blessing of Your magnificent gift of grace unto a undeserving child such as I. Oh a great big thank you for your incredible transformation of a filthy little rag a bound into a beautiful child of Yours through a slow but steady hand of the Heavenly Molder. I exalt You in the name of he whose stunning gift of His cherished blood made all this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Washes Them Away.

waterfalls tumbling into chartreuse lake between exotic trees

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]. John 14:27 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever sat by the shore of a lake or ocean?

I like to sit there and relax. As the waves go out they grab my anger, fear, frustration, worry and sorrow and carry them away. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He washes them away. As the waves come in they fill me with peace. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He fills me with His divine peace love and joy.

Now, we do not need an ocean or lake to experience this blessing but it is experienced its most effective in nature. Try sitting by a small creek with little rapids or a quite forest or a quiet meadow.

Here is the formula I use: first I close my eyes and bawl my eyes out unto my Heavenly Father what ever the problem is. Then I sit there quietly while He blesses me with enveloping me in His loving, comforting arms. Once He has filled me with His Divine peace I slowly open my eyes and He reveals all the beauty around me He has created. Every time there is an over whelming feeling of love, joy, peace and awe. I fill at one with my Beloved and cannot but help shout out “ I love You oh Holy Father, I love You.” It is truly the most amazing experience I have ever been blessed with.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for Your blessings of bountiful peace during the storms that crash around me and the fires that surround me through out my walk with You. I magnify You in the name of the Price of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Product of Attitude and Thought.

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

 And blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired) is he who trusts [confidently] in the Lord. Proverbs 16:20 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Every day I pray for Jehovah to bless me with opening my eyes to all His blessings great and small. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When I do this my attitude is one of gratefulness and this creates a happy disposition in my daily life that flows out to those around me. Many times it brings light into anothers darkened day. They in turn share it with others. You may be surprised at just how much your positive attitude can change the environment you are in whether that be at school work or in society ( like on public transit). Now, the older we get the more deep wounds we have in our hearts from those who have abused us.

The devil will use these to play over and over again in your mind to steal away your happiness.

When this happens, why not pray for Jehovah to help you focus your thoughts on your amazing love affair with Him.

When you have a heart of gratitude there is no place for anger, fear or worry. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is a blessing that must be asked for daily and be appreciated in the evening time with bed time prayers of gratitude unto the giver of these blessings.

Happiness is a product of attitude and thought. It comes from you, not to you. –Richard Daly

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) bless me with creating a daily attitude and behaviour of gratitude for all the numerous blessing You abundantly graciously give me every day. Bless me with concentrating upon Your love to heal the deep wounds that have been inflicted upon my heart so that it will be filled with Your divine love to be shared with others through out the day today and every day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who taught His disciples gratitude as He walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Serve One or the Other.

chief-duty

Serve the Lord with gladness and delight; Come before His presence with joyful singing. Psalm 100:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In life we all have a choice of who we will serve. We cannot serve them both. We will serve one or the other.

The second one is serving ourselves. We come above all others and all else.

Now some may say I do a lot of community work, how can that be serving myself?

Yes, but, why are you serving the community or is it to serve the community or is it to puff up your ego?

The sad thing is that those who are selfish and self serving (greedy) are the loneliest creatures I have ever met. Oh, they may have a lot of money, prestige, fame and toys but they have no one to love and to be loved by. They usually take comfort in a bottle or pills.

The number on choice is to serve the Lord.

Everything we do whether great or small that is dedicated unto Him is cherished by Him.

There is no small act of dedication unto Jehovah that is not great in Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We are to serve out of duty not obligation.

Duty is an act of love, obligation is a transaction of goods.

So those religions that falsely teach that good works will gain you entry into Shangrala are only deceiving you. When you receive your rewards here, you have completed the transaction of goods.

When we serve out of duty unto Jehovah it is done as an act of love. After all that is what it is all about. Being blessed with a loving relationship with Him and when you love someone you enjoy making them happy which is what duty is. The bonus we receive is a heavenly home where we will enjoy an eternal loving intimate relationship with our Divine Father.

Do you seek any further reward beyond that of having pleased God? In truth, you know not how great a good it is to please Him. –St. John Chrysostom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with many opportunities to preform my duty unto You by serving others. I exalt You in the name of He who served us on with the ultimate service on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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