Walk in Union with Him.

with-all-your-heart

 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in [union with] Him [reflecting His character in the things you do and say—living lives that lead others away from sin],having been deeply rooted [in Him] and now being continually built up in Him and [becoming increasingly more] established in your faith, just as you were taught, and overflowing in it with gratitude. Colossians 2:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you walk in union with Christ every day?

Now how you gonna do that?

For me it begins with morning prayer and Bible reading. I begin by saying a prayer of thank you which then proceeds with a prayer for Divine providential care and guidance for myself and for others. Yes it is just as important for you to have a prayer list where you pray for brothers and sisters as well as for yourself. Yes make it personal and for me it becomes even more sincere when I include those that require the same assistance as I.

Prayer is having a respectful loving conversation every day with our most cherished lovers ( Jehovah , Jesus and the Holy Spirit ). Joseph- Anthony: Green

Next comes my spiritual breakfast. I have daily devotions sent to my inbox and read them like I would eat a physical meal ( sometimes , I must confess to fast to digest just like a rushed meal. I find the meal is not enjoyed in that manner). When my Holy Teacher speaks to me through these I stop reading and talk it through with Him ( which means shutting up and listening. How many of us are so busy talking there is no time for listening? ) There is always a pen and paper handy to write down what is being said to contemplate it later and discuss it later if there is too much to digest at that time.

The Bible is the Best Spiritual food every Christian needs to feast upon every day. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we do this we naturally reflect Christs character by default. We are not even aware of it most times. I joyfully thank my Beloved every night before closing my eyes in a peaceful sleep after giving thanks for all His amazing blessings showered upon me during the course of the day.

Prayer is the best medicine for insomnia. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for being so patient and encouraging in the process of creating this wicked filthy lost soul into a pure beautiful child of Your. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood created this blessing Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Can You Be Still?

heart-at-peace

 “ Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. “ Psalm 46:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe one of the greatest problems in western society today is business.We are so busy with our jobs , families and past times that there is no room for daily communion with Jehovah.

Spending daily time with Jehovah is the best stress reliever there is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The consequence of this is broken families where there are strangers living in the same house or apartment. This expands into our neighbourhoods , cities, provinces and countries. How many folks know their neighbours ?

How many folks know anything about the souls living in a different part of their country ?

As well, you destroy your mental , spiritual and physical health when you are constantly busy.

I cherish the time spent every day with my Beloved. Many times He reveals His attributes to me that expands my love , admiration and respect for Him. An added benefit is that there is a peace and security that lasts all day from that morning commune with Him.

How can you love a stranger ?

If you spend no time with Jehovah then how can you know Him ? If you do not know Him then how can you love Him?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for graceful kindness in spending time with me every day . It is the most cherished part of my day . I extol You in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ . Amen .

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

Who are You Walking With?

true-friendship

 He who walks [as a companion] with wise men will be wise,
But the companions of [conceited, dull-witted] fools [are fools themselves and] will experience harm.
Proverbs 13:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I find it quite humorous every time I see folks destroying their bodies with tattoos, body piercing and weird hair colouring just to look original when alls they are really doing is following the trends of the “ beautiful people “

This is not a new fade but has been going on for eons. I have seen many of them come and go in the decades I have been walking this planet and am always amazed at their foolishness. Sometimes when I meet someone I knew from a few decades back we always laugh at the silliness of it.

Children , the next time you are at grandma and grandpa’s house ask them to show you photo’s of your mom and dad when they were your age.

What is pitiful is seeing the older generation attempting to look young by keeping up with these silly fads.

The same thing can be said about the many disastrous choices we have all made because we were impressed by a Dapper Dan.

The wise learn from these ruinous experiences and seek out those who are wise and befriend them even though their lifestyle is not considered “ cool “ to those in the world.

The foolish persist in repeating the same ruinous pattern and choosing the same arrogant pretentious companions .

Choose your friends carefully because as they are so too will you become. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend ) for blessing me with wisdom to steer away from the destructive friends and towards Godly friends that we can share communion together as well as enjoy communion with You. I exhalt You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ . Amen.

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

Man Forgets His Purpose

with-all-your-heart

 He made Christ who knew no sin to [ judicially ] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [ that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious loving kindness]. 2 Corinthians 5:21 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There is only one supreme relationship we need to be fully concerned with.

It is not your family, your wife, your friends or your associates.

It is the relationship you have with Jehovah. When we are blessed with Holy Communion with him we need never ask why we are here. We know we are here to be blessed with the supreme love affair and that is with Jehovah. We need never ask what is the meaning of life because we know it is to be in an obedient, loving relationship with our Heavenly Father.

“Man, made in the image of God, has a purpose – to be in relationship to God, who is there. Man forgets his purpose and thus he forgets who he is and what life means.” — Francis Schaeffer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah- M’Kaddesh ( The Lord is my Sanctifier ) for setting me apart from the world to be blessed with an awesome love affair with You. Thank you that because of this cherished gift I know the meaning of life and my purpose in it. I exalt You in the name of my precious King Jesus Christ who has given my life meaning and purpose. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless 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.

Come close to God.

PREDESTINATION

 Come close to God [with a contrite heart] and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; and purify your [unfaithful] hearts, you double-minded [people]. James 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Contrite means you feel bad about your sins and desire to repent of them and double minded means you think this way but behave in the exact opposite way.

Have you ever met someone who says they will do this and then they do that. It is not a one off experience but a habitual one.

For example you make an appointment with them for nine o clock in the morning and they do not show up until eleven or one in the afternoon. They do not call to say they will be late and when they arrive they do not apologize but make some stupid excuse. It infuriated me. Now I just tell folks to be there on time because I am not waiting. If it is important enough for them then they will be there on time.

Mutual respect is an intricate part of a loving relationship. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same thing is true with Jehovah.

We must be respectful towards Him if we desire a loving relationship with Him.

If He convicts you of a sin in your life and you admit it but intentionally continue in your sin that will make Him angry and yes He will walk away from you. He will not accept lame excuses nor tolerate insolence.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with a Heavenly friendship with You. Please bless me with always being respectful towards You in all I say and do. I humbly give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Better Rice and Beans than Steak.

true-friendship

 Better is a dinner of vegetables and herbs where love is present Than a fattened ox served with hatred. Proverbs 15:17 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

I believe a modern way of saying this is better a poor mans meal of rice and beans where there is love thank steak where there is a lot of hate, jealousy and phony friends.

I know it to be true.

I have had fancy meals where the folks sitting at the meal could not even look each other in the face they hated each other so much ( and that was with family ) . Believe me , it was no an enjoyable meal. It was surprising they could even digest their meal . I wanted to bolt for the door.

A meal shared with hate is the worse meal to ever been eaten. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have shared a meal with extremely poor souls that were giving me a portion of their food and it was just rice and beans. I felt like royalty. The love just permeated the atmosphere and I did not want the meal to end.

A meal shared with love is the best meal ever. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the numerous times You have blessed me with communion with You and with those whose hearts overflow with love. I appreciate this in the name of my most cherished Beloved Jesus Christ. Amen.

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