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.

The Best Cheerleader.

gods-word

God who gives endurance and who supplies encouragement. Romans 15:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In many group sports they have cheerleaders. Their purpose is to encourage the team, especially when they are down in the score.

The best cheerleader for life of course is The Holy Spirit.

He provides us with physical, mental and spiritual endurance for the race Jehovah has chosen for us to run. He has various methods to accomplish this from the Holy Bible , to preachers to fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

It is when we are at our lowest that we appreciate the most Jehovahs helping hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same can be said for encouragement.

I cannot count the number of times I was ready to quit and then someone came and blessed me with encouraging words and help to see me through the tough times. I cannot count the number of times when a preacher sounded as if he was speaking directly to me from Jehovah that it lifted me up and strengthen me to carry on with zest. This is repeated through music as well as just spending quiet time with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with the many wonderful ways You have encouraged me when I was ready to give up. Thank you for helping me regain my strength to carry on Your Holy path You have chosen for me to travel down. I exalt You in the name of He who encouraged His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

If You Do This.

when-i-pray

 Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart
And do not rely on your own insight
or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Here is perhaps the most important advice to be given in your life: “ Wait and pray. “

Before you sign any contract ask for a copy of it to take home to read over it. You will avoid the pressure sales talk that way which can and does lead to disaster. If they refuse to allow you this right do not walk away , run. The only reason they will refuse to allow you to study it is because it is a bad contract. They are experts and making poo poo look like sugar and prey upon foolish suckers.

A wise man depends upon Jehovah for guidance , a foolish man depends upon his own faulty thinking. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Before you read it , humbly pray for the Holy Spirits guidance. When you read it He will point out things that you do not understand or find acceptable. High light them with a marker. Then put it down and again, pray for understanding of what you do not understand and how to wisely discuss it with the other party to meet your satisfactory requirements and sit silently for His answer. Wait and pray before you sign on the dotted line. He may not answer you right away but be patient, He will answer you. When He answers you, write it down. Then , when you encounter the one making the offer have faith that His wisdom will secure you a favourable contract.

This is my modus operandi and it has prevented me from entering into many disastrous contracts.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with Your voice through the Holy Spirit when negotiating all contracts. Through this blessing You have prevented me from enslaving me in noxious contracts with snakes in the grass. I praise You in the name of He who saw through the shams of the Scribes and Pharisee’s Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You will Condemn.

cannot-outrun

  “No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Have you ever been set up by someone ?

You know , they are angry with you with out just cause or they are jealous of you so they set you up to embarrass you or to shame you in front of a crowd weather it be at school ,at work, at a family get together or in a social setting.

They think they are so smart don’t they ?

The trap the evil ones lay for the righteous the wicked will fall into themselves. Joseph- Anthony ;Green

We who are of Christ know that the Holy Spirit dwells with in us. We must pray for wisdom ,gracefulness, meekness and humbleness.

When confronted with their evil schemes the Holy Spirit will bless us with such to shoot them down and the shame shall come pouring down upon their heads like fiery coals.

I have read articles on how to deal with narcissists and stubborn folks which have helped me enormously. It is difficult to put into action at first but with practice it hones my skills and confidence. We are filled with peace and calm, wisdom and security during the confrontation.

Now we are not to become like them and be cruel, vindictive or arrogant. Then we shame our Beloved in Heaven.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) for blessing me with Your incredible providence to escape the traps the wicked ones so arrogantly prepare for me in their evil schemes which they fall into themselves . I praise You in the name that escaped the wicked Pharasee’s traps Jesus Christ . Amen

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

I will Look in Triumph

CHRISTS POWER

 People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. John 3:19-20 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

When I first became a Christian it confused me why certain folks hated me with a passion even though I did nothing to offend them.

After reading this first the Lord blessed me with understanding.

They hate all Christians because we who walk in the Light convict those that enjoy walking in the darkness. They know what they are doing is wrong ( the Holy Spirit convicts them ) yet steadfastly refuse to repent of their wicked ways. They laugh and say that either there is no God or He does not care.

When they encounter us true Christians their conscience is pricked and they do not like it.

Then in their evil perverted minds they conceive every torment they can upon us and laugh at our discomfort. They foolishly believe they are getting away with it.

Time and again it clearly states that Jehovah is a God of justice and He will deliver terrifying justice on His time and in His way.

From my experience those whom the wicked tormented will be witnesses to it. I certainly did not enjoy it, indeed , many times I wanted to cry watching them suffer, but accept that Jehovah cannot allow the wicked to go unpunished.

Those who walk in Christ will be avenged in Gods time in Gods way. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We do not gloat over it but allow it to digest into our heart and mind so that we can share this testimony with other tormentors in the hopes that they will repent.

As well, it is encouraging to those who are being wickedly persecuted. The Lord is on my side, He is among those who help me;

Therefore I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for condemning the wicked ones and delivering true justice to the wicked ones that inflict pain and suffering upon the innocent ones. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ . Amen

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

What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered Jesus Christ . Amen

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

He Will Save You.

HAVE COURAGE

 Say to those with an anxious and panic-stricken heart, “Be strong, fear not! He will save you.” Isaiah 35:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxious is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty.

We have all experienced anxiousness in our lives.

The difference between Christians and those of the world is that they have no where to turn to to provide them with concrete assurances that those they go to for help are in control and to fill them with peace.

We as Christians have the confidence in Jehovah who controls everything.

When we are obedient unto His guidance He will sooth out fears, comfort us and guide us to the best path to take out of the dark forest of uncertainty that envelopes us in whatever the circumstance is that is causing us apprehension.

Panic is defined as the emotion experienced in the presence or threat of danger.

Again those who are of the world panic when disaster is looming or is striking them. Those of us who belong unto Christ have His assurance that He will either walk through the fire with us like He did with  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

He answered, “Look! I see four men untied, walking around in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt! And the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”  Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the blazing furnace and said, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, servants of the Most High God, come out [of there]! Come here!” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego came out of the midst of the fire. The satraps, the prefects, the governors and the king’s counselors gathered around them and saw that in regard to these men the fire had no effect on their bodies — their hair was not singed, their clothes were not scorched or damaged, even the smell of smoke was not on them Daniel 3:25-27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Or , He will deliver us from the storm like He did His disciples.

But as they were sailing, He fell asleep. And a fierce gale of wind swept down [ as if through a wind tunnel ] on the lake, and they began to be swamped, and were in great danger. 24 They came to Jesus and woke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are about to die!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging, violent waves, and they ceased, and it became calm [a perfect peacefulness]. Luke 8:23-25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Those were real events Christian and are available unto You Jehovahs cherished child when you , in faith , call out unto Him.

I know , I have been through many furnaces and raging storms with Him in our walk towards the Heavenly home He has prepared for me.

“Knowing that I am not the one in control gives great encouragement. Knowing the One who is in control is everything.” — Alexander Michael

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being there with me through my numerous trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares . Through all my pain and hardships . I could not have made it without Your comforting , reassuring and strengthening presence. I exalt You in the name of He who calmed the stroms of His disciples storms Jesus Christ . Amen

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