Great and Priceless Treasure.

christs-love-blossom-in-your-heart

 Great and priceless treasure is in the house of the [consistently] righteous one [who seeks godly instruction and grows in wisdom], But trouble is in the income of the wicked one [who rejects the laws of God]. Proverbs 15:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To me the greatest treasure is spiritual.

Therefore to me the greatest treasure is a loving relationship with Jehovah. This is indeed a priceless treasure, what is there that is even of equal value much less worth more?

The treasure chest consists of an endearing love that is constantly expanding. An assurance that Jehovah is always there to guide me through rough waters and to protect me from the tsunamis of troubles that is too great for me to bear. A awesome teacher that teaches me to be a child of His with integrity and teaches me how to avoid many troubles, that teaches me wisdom. A incredible relationship that blesses me with amazing spiritual strength to conquer and destroy weaknesses that attempt to destroy me.

Oh what a truly amazing treasure this is.

The greatest treasure is the treasure of an amazing loving relationship with Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand there is much truth in the adage: There is no peace for the wicked. They are always fretting to the point of insomnia and paranoia about someone whom they have done wrong jumping out to get them. They toss and turn worrying about their material wealth vanishing and leaving them in the gutter. Then there is the suffering from enduring Jehovahs wrath for their evil wickedness. Their mental and physical health is slowly destroyed until they are a shell of a human being.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with providing me with a incredible loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for the unending riches that comes with this blessing like peace, love, joy and confidence. I extol Thee in the name of He whose blood is the key that opens up this treasure box Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

How Much do You Trust?

in-his-arms

  Then they asked Him, “What are we to do, so that we may habitually be doing the works of God?” Jesus answered, “This is the work of God: that you believe [adhere to, trust in, rely on, and have faith] in the One whom He has sent.” John 6:28-29 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

How much do you trust Jehovah?

Be careful.

If you declare that you have complete trust in Him He will put you to the test and how foolish will you look then.

Personally I do not believe any Christian has complete and total trust in Jehovah. That is why we need to say: yes I believe, help my belief.”

That does not make sense does it?

Yes it does completely make sense.

We have faith in what Jehovah says is true but many times there is reservations about what He is saying to us. That is why we need to request that He bless us with enlarging our faith.

The just and upright shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every morning we need to ask by faith that Jehovah will direct our footsteps in our thoughts, words and deeds. Then, in trust we believe He will do it.

But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you do not trust (have faith ) in Jesus then why are you following someone you do not have faith in? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for having such Divine trust in me and confidence in me that You have some times in baby steps some times in leaps enlarged me trust in You and Your loving ways. I extol Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Love to Have Intercourse with God.

i-love-you-my-lord

  As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Psalms 42 Holy Bible New International Version

Having intercourse means to enjoy a relationship with Him ( no not just sexual but in conversation as well. ).

Think of a marriage, if the couple only have intercourse in courting and then say :Well we had intercourse before marriage we do not require any more in our relationship. “ is that relationship not doomed? Think of how you were always calling , texting and desiring to spend time together in courtship. If there is none of that in the marriage that is not a marriage but a life sentence.

If a child says I had intercourse with you when I was born, I no longer require intercourse with you is that not abusive? What kind of family life is that?

So too it is with us.

We need daily intercourse with our Beloved if we desire for our relationship to grow. Just as a thirsty deer pants for cool life giving refreshing water so too are we to pant for Jehovahs sweet love in our daily lives. We must have a deep desire for a daily meeting with Him.

If you have no desire to enjoy and nurture a relationship with Christ , you are not a Christian. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the honoured privilege of sharing Divine intercourse with You. It is truly one of my most treasured gifts You have blessed me with. I humbly and joyously thank You in the name of my best friend with whom is always there to share treasured time with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.

Cheers Him Up.

helping-others

 “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. “ Proverbs 12:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

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

We have all encountered those around us that are suffering. How many have reached out and touched them with healing kindness ?

How can we help them ?

The best thing to do is to show you care by listening to their problems ( Jehovah takes the time to listen to our problems should we not emulate Him by doing the same for those that are suffering around us ? ) .

We are not just talking about the homeless .

We are talking about those that are suffering a disease . Yes , for many , going into a hospital is an uncomfortable experience but how comfortable do you think it is for them. Why not go in and reminisce with them about the good ol days . Why not go in with some photo’s of happy times . Speaking from experience you will be amazed at the amount of good you accomplish.

We are talking about those who are having difficulty in their studies or at work. Those of us who are older can relate and provide encouraging words to strengthen , guide them and encourage them. What about those that are experiencing relationship problems like with marriage or children? Again , those of us who are older have walked that walk and can provide positive affirmation to them by our experiences which will guide them , strengthen them and reassure them .

There are so many other opportunities available unto you Christian. All you have to do is be available , pray and be obedient unto Jehovahs guidance where your help is needed.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge bless me with the opportunity to be a refuge unto those enduring trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares just as You are for me. Bless me with Your divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness to help them as You have aboundingly done for me . I humbly request this in the name of He who was a refuge to the poor , the sick and the weak when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. 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.

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.
