Yield and Submit.

WE MUST LET GO

 “Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you. Job 22:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes the two. It takes the two parts in this verse before you are blessed.

Number one is to stop.

Stop being independent and stubborn. Jehovah cannot and will not ever attempt to help someone who refuses help. We must yield our will and wants and submit unto Him.

The next part is just as difficult.

To submit ourselves unto Jehovah means we are to give Him total control over our lives like a horse submits to the reins of its rider.

Once these two difficult tasks are completed then come the blessing. The blessing may be a physical blessing but there is always a spiritual blessing. The spiritual blessing of course is that there is a lot less stress in your life because you trust Jehovah has control of your life. The same can be said for worry. Instead your life is filled with peace, contentment and a knowledge of security knowing we have a superior being directing and helping us live a Divine life.

Leaving it in Jehovahs hands is the better choice. He knows what He is doing while we only think we know what we are doing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the privilege of being a humble servant of the most noble King. Please bless me to always have a submissive heart unto Your will in every aspect of my life. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in Your majestic name. Amen.

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

Have You Ever Tired That?

a-praying-man

 Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12 Holy Bible, New King James Version.

There are two important equations in this text.

The first one is that Jesus went out to a quiet place to commune with Jehovah.

For me the best place to pray where there is deep personal conversation with my Beloved is in Jehovahs Cathedral ( nature). After all where can you not be closest to Him except in His creation where the trees, flowers and streams sing of His peace and beauty while the birds are singing praises unto Him. It fills me with peace and calm. Being relaxed with Him allows me to not only be more open and personal with Him but also where the hustle and bustle of the city does not drown out His voice speaking to me.

The next part is where Jesus prayed all night.

Have you ever tired that? I mean praying all night.

I have prayed for a couple of hours but all night, wow. The only time I can remember praying continually is during intense agony in my life. Then I prayed continually for a week. Throughout it all He gave me strength to endure it and comfort that He was there with me.

Of course we realize that this was the time of Christ’s time of agony before His torture and horrible death on the cross.

So whenever you are in a intense crisis perhaps then you will be able to pray not only all night but for days at a time like I did. Then you too will be strengthened and comforted during your intense time of tribulation.

Prayer: I immensely thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your patience in listening to the cries of anguish of a cherished child of Yours when we are enduring trials and tribulations. I thank you for Your Divine strength, peace and comfort that enabled me to not only endure them but to grow spiritually and mentally because of them. I exalt You in the name of He who sweated blood during His time of agonizing prayer Jesus Christ. Amen

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

What is Your Purpose in Life?

chief-duty

And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. Romans 8:28 Holy Bible Amplified Version

At some time during our lives we all ask what is your purpose in life. Many go from one career to another , one relationship to another , one hobby to another searching for the meaning in their life. Each failure brings them deeper and deeper into depression , frustration and confusion. How many have committed suicide because they felt life had nothing to offer them.

Those of us who are Christ’s free servants do not experience this once we have surrendered our wills and life unto Him. He slowly pulls back the curtain to reveal His Divine plan for our lives. It may not be glamorous or famous but we experience , peace , contentment and joy because we know our purpose in life. Now as we progress in our walk He may move us from one purpose to another. The first purpose was teaching us and preparing us for the next step He has prepared for us.

For me He has moved me four times in thirty years. Reflecting back I laugh because during each one I was unaware that He was using it to prepare me for the next.

If you are one of the ones described in the first paragraph why not completely surrender your will and life unto an amazing Heavenly King and watch the amazing things He will accomplish in your life as well.

There is within every soul a thirst for happiness and meaning.” — Thomas Aquinas

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ -Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the santification of being Your Holy servant and for guiding me unto the service You have prepared for me in Thy Holy Kingdom. In Your amazing name I humbly give thanks. Amen

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

Which do You Desire ?

young-and-old-all-need-love

 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts. 1 Corinthians 14:1 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Are you a slave?

We are constantly bombarded on TV , the radio , in magazines and in society that we are nothing if we do not have the latest toys and gadgets. Have we not all seen the long line up where folks sometimes camp out to get the latest mobile phone? What is wrong with the old one ? Well , you will not fit in with the “ in crowd “ if you do not have it..

What is the root of it all ?

Pride.

These are of course very expensive which most people cannot afford. Do not worry as the dealer will give you easy credit in easy payments. The problem is that you end up making so may of these : easy payments “ that you cannot pay your bills or put food on the table.

I have seen people in soup kitchens because they cannot afford food. They cannot afford food because they just bought this expensive new toy or got a new tattoo.

After the glow of the new toy wheres off the need another toy fix do they go out and buy more stuff they do not need nor can afford. They are as bad as drug addicts. Most are quite unhappy and downright miserable.

That which they love has made them into a slave.

On the other hand there are the wise ones that relish their relationship with Jehovah. They are filled with love and the only way to become richer in love is to share it.

The only way to share it is to be blessed by Jehovah with spiritual gifts which they share with others. We are constantly requesting and thanking our Beloved when we share these in abundance with us.

The world looks at us as if we are crazy but we know who the real crazy one are don’t we?

Which do you desire ?

The so called pleasure of the world which enslaves you , leaves you unsatisfied and empty and makes you want more like a junkie or the spiritual gifts that fill our every core with amazing Heavenly love and leaves you feeling euphoric .

Prayer: Praise You Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the most amazing gift of Your Heavenly love and the spiritual gifts to share them with the lost , empty souls that are enslaved in the material world. May You bless us with unlimited opportunities to share them so as to bless others with coming into the only satisfying life there every can be. I exalt You in the name of He who we attempt to emulate His love Jesus Christ . Amen

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

You Meet the Criteria

JESUS' GUIDANCE

 But God has selected [for His purpose] the foolish things of the world to shame the wise [revealing their ignorance], and God has selected [for His purpose] the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong [revealing their frailty]. 1 Corinthians 1:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you believe you are not smart enough to share the gospel or a Bible study?

Jehovah needs you for that exact reason. He uses the uneducated to shame the arrogant that profess to be wise. He shows that He is using you to show others what He can do through others and themselves. You meet the criteria to be useful in His kingdom work.

You do not need to be pretty enough, rich enough, a social elite or genius to do His work ( indeed , many times these are a hindrance ).

Do you have a heart that is willing to do His will and be obedient unto His calling in your life ?

Then , you meet the criteria to be His servant.

Have a sincere desire to serve God and mankind, and stop doubting, stop thinking negatively. Simply start living by faith, pray earnestly and humbly, and get into the habit of looking expectantly for the best. –Norman Vincent Peal

Indeed , I had no university degree when I went to service unto the Lord in Asia but had a willing heart to learn how to teach and was obedient unto His calling. In the process I was a much sought after teacher shaming many of the arrogant university educated ones who thought they were superior to me. It was a comical twist when these souls ended up coming to me the “ uneducated “ for advice because I knew how to teach in Asia ( through the Lords special class which took two years and a lot of effort and trial and error on my behalf) and they did not ( people in different parts of the world learn differently than from those of different parts of the world ) .

Jehovah can use the outcasts of society more than the elite because the outcasts know they need Jehovahs guidance more than the elite do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara ( The Lord Creator) for taking a filthy lost sinner like me and creating in me a heart, mind and soul that is receptive to Your Divine purification and blessing me with Your Divine purpose. I exalt You in the name of He who transformed ignorant fishermen into world transforming disciples Jesus Christ . Amen

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

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.

But Whoever has Adequate Resources

SHARING

 But whoever has the world’s goods (adequate resources), and sees his brother in need, but has no compassion for him, how does the love of God live in him? 1 John 3:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I have seen people who do without their daily needs so they can give to the bleeding hearts (most of whom are scam artists in my opinion) on TV cry babying for money. It is pitiful to see but they think they are doing good (meanwhile many of these ceo’s are getting paid millions of dollars and the people you think you are helping are just too lazy to help themselves). Many falsely believe they are obeying Jehovahs commands to help the “poor”.

When I was was in Central America folks were constantly telling me to get married and have lots of children so they can support them when they get old. Meanwhile they cannot support their families. They would look at me and say because I have more money than them I “owe” it to them to give them my money.

As well, volunteering in soup kitchens it was common for the “poor” to come up to me and brag about the new tattoo they got and then cry baby they do not have money for food and demand I give them money because I have more money than them.

We are to give, but we are to give sensibly.

Check out the organization (begin by looking at the ceo’s wages ) and if the money is going to actually help those who are worthy of the help.

I do not care if you think I am a scrooge. I would rather give wisely and be considered a Scrooge than give foolishly and be a sucker. Joseph- Anthony :Green

If you cannot afford to help financially then help by donating your time to a worthy cause.

Prayer:Please Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) provide wisdom unto those who wish to honour You but have limited financial resources to organizations that will appreciate their skills more than their finances. Please provide those with available financial resources to organizations that will wisely use the gifts graciously provided unto them. I ask this in the name of he who always provided for His disciples when he walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

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