How do You Take Care Of ?

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. —1 Corinthians 12:22 New Living Translation.

Now if we are a family of Christ as Jehovah as our Father then there are big brothers and sisters and little brothers and sisters. The big brothers and sisters are the ones that have a deep understanding and experience with God. Their walk with God is strong. The babies are the new members of our family or the ones through no fault of their own are weak.

The big brothers and sisters should not be critical or haughty of the babies. They should nurture them, encourage them and be respectful towards them.   

The more mature Christian is to be loving, patient, encouraging, and mentoring to those who are not as far along the walk to Heaven as themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The babies should listen to and obey their big brothers and sisters. When they speak to them with love about areas in their life that needs to be corrected they should not be insulted or hurt by the actions.

If we all behaved like this in the churches the churches would not decrease. Many churches are losing members because of the mean spiritedness of other members. Those hypocritical members are judgmental and condescending to the babies in the family. The babies are hurt and give the middle finger to the church and walk away. Indeed how many new members of the family walk away from Jesus because of this? I tell you true, their blood will be on the guiltiest hands (yes blood. Because they walk away from Jesus because of you, you are the reason they are going to hell.).

How do you think that makes Jesus feel?

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for lovingly blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be the child You desire me to be. Please bless me to emulate Him to come along side those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am (that does not mean childish but rather inexperienced) and to lovingly guide them to a deeper loving, obedient relationship with You. Thank you for the big brothers and sisters whom You have sent to mentor me and may I emulate them as well. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I do Not Cease.

 

 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. Ephesians 1:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is not by accident that certain folks enter into your life. They may be mentors, they may be encouragers, they may be comforters or they may be helpers.

It is an important part of your life to be thankful unto both Jehovah and those He sends into your life. Remember them every day with joyful thanks in your prayers.

And then, sincerely pay it back.

Ask Jehovah to use you to be an encourager, helper,mentor or comforter unto someone else.

Indeed ask that Jehovah guides you to someone outside of His Holy family so that through this experience you may be the catalyst to move their hearts into becoming His children as well.

There are two important words that should be in every Christians prayer: Thank you. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) bless me with plentiful opportunities to bless others by being their helper as You have blessed me. Please accept this as my offering of gratitude unto You for Your bountiful blessings unto me. I ask this in the name of He who is Your greatest blessing Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It is Not Futile.

 Your labor in the Lord is not futile nor wasted. 1 Corinthians 15:58 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you serving the Lord yet not seeing any results?

Take heart.

Seeds do not bear fruit over night but some grow quick while others take longer to bear fruit. Joseph son of Jehovah T

hey say that when we get to Heaven one of the greatest surprises will be the people around us that we served and then moved on. We do not believe we gave them a lasting affect but afterwards they blossomed into beautiful children of Jehovah.

I know, when I was a teacher there would be many months with no visible change in my children. I would call out to the Lord and ask Him why I was wasting my time here suffering these hardships for nothing. Then one day some of them would come up to me like children on Christmas morning and share with me that they had given their hearts and lives to Jesus. Because we were in a communist country and there was no Bibles readily available would ask me if I had one which I gladly obliged. I cannot tell you how my heart danced with ecstasy in pure joy.

Any time spent serving the Lord is never wasted time. Joseph son of Jehovah

You may not see the results in your lifetime but take heart. Some of the seeds you have sown will blossom into Heavenly children of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful to my request for the honour of planting the seeds of a Heavenly crop, even if I do not see the harvest during my lifetime. I exalt You in the name of the greatest sower Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which One Comes From You?

  And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;  and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jehovah assigns as difficult task for you to do are you obstinate, stomp your feet and say I refuse like a spoiled little brat? Even though He reasons with you with His Word, Christian Councilors and signs.

Or, if He directs you to stop doing something do you obstinacy refuse?

Beware.

Jehovah only does what is for your good. So, if you refuse to listen to Him, you will pay greatly in the long run.

I have seen many obstinate folks refuse to listen and slowly sink deeper and deeper into a living Hell.

“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Perseverance means a continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.

Obstinacy mean to be sticking to an opinion, purpose, or course of action in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.

If on the other hand you obey Him you will learn to wait upon His time to mold you into the child He desire you to be. Through our hardships we become stronger in our trust in Him to see us through them and burn off the dross to become pure children of Jehovah. This will mold us into Holy children of Jehovah and be assured of our salvation. Do not think this is a one off experience. It takes years, even decades for Jehovah to accomplish His desire in you His beloved child.

That is why us older children need to come along side of the younger ones to strengthen them with our witness.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me to guide me and strengthen me as You mold me into the child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of He whose strength helped Him endure the horrible cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

How is Your Spiritual Training Going?

 For physical training is of some value, but godliness (spiritual training) is of value in everything and in every way, since it holds promise for the present life and for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How is your spiritual training going?

If a long distance runner does not practice almost every day he is not able to compete. If instead of practicing and listening to his coaches he spends his time at the bar drinking beer there is no way he can compete in any race and there is certainly no way he will finish it. Everybody watching him will laugh at him.

So too it is with the Christian race.

We need to train every day to get stronger. We train by at the beginning of every day praying.

Praying consists of three parts: To begin with we thank Jehovah for all the blessing He has bestowed upon us both big and small while apologizing for the sins we have committed both big and small.

The second part is to pray for Jehovahs will to be done in our daily lives not our own and for help to accomplish this.

The third part is to be praying for others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The next part is asking Jehovah to bless us with wisdom while reading His instruction manual for this race, it is called the Bible and obeying what He reveals for us (write it down to contemplate upon it through out the day).

Finally we need to pray that Jehovah blesses us with Godly wise men and women to be our mentors to teach and encourage us in this race ( of course that means we are to be mentors to those who are not as progressed in the race as we are).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being with me a listening when I approach You in prayer. I am humbled that one as great as You desires to listen to me and talk with me through constant prayer. I exalt You in the name of He who taught us the best way to pray Jesus Christ. Amen

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

His Name is Jehovah.

 “When my soul was fainting within me, I remembered the Lord, And my prayer came to You, Into Your holy temple. Jonah 2:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The older we get the more our soul faints with in, except, for those of us who belong to Christ.

You know why our soul does not grow weak?

Because we have the greatest strengthener there can ever be. His name is Jehovah.

I cannot count the number of times my finances were exhausted and I had no job because of a recession. Yes money was put away for this inevitability but it was put into investments that a naive one like me did not realize that the investment firm would charge exorbitant charges for cashing in the investment and the blood sucker government would take a huge chunk as well leaving me with a pittance to hold me over. That is what happens when you trust in corporations in my opinion, they are out to make money off of you and do not want to pay out. It took many years to walk away from these scoundrels and depend upon the best investment councilor there is. His name is Jehovah. Since listening to His wise advice and obeying His guidance there has never been a shortage of fiances ( mind you part of that is learning to live frugally and not to be a part of the foolish materialistic world).

In my younger days I used to read a lot of self help books to improve myself. Some were good and are still referenced to today ( especially because they confirm what the Bible says) but most were complete rubbish (especially the ones written by the “ new agers” ).

Self help is no where near as effective as Jehovahs help. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Today I depend upon the wisest Guidance Councilor there is.

His name is Jehovah.

Through His guidance book ( the Holy Bible), good Christian councilors and preachers He has remolded me in so many incredible ways so that there is no semblance of the old creature but only a new and much improved child of His.

The same is said in dealing with interpersonal relationships. Yes there are still times when my soul becomes weak within me but when those times come ( and they always do ) the proper course of action is taken and the soul is strengthened. The proper course of course is taking it to my loving, wise Councilor.

His name is Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your ultimate strength in my times of weaknesses. I would have never made it without You my love. I extol Thee in the name of my strong Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The More We Become Like Him.

choices

 Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well beloved children [imitate their father]. Ephesians 5:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whether you like it or not when you become an adult your personality and disposition always imitates one of your parents. Being older now I can see this through four generations.

Now the more time we spend with someone the more we become like them ( just ask any couple that has been married for thirty years or more ) so it only stands to reason that the more time we spend with Christ the more we become like Him.

Now just like with any family there are rules of conduct and behaviour.

So too it is with Jesus’ family. Many of these rules will be foreign to us and down right unattainable. That is when we are blessed with the Divine assistance of the Holy Spirit who will mentor us through the muddy waters and discipline us when we go astray. The more we attain this the more we resemble Christ.

“The steady discipline of intimate friendship with Jesus results in men becoming like Him.” — H. E. Fosdick

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for all the help you have made in encouraging, guiding and moulding this child of Yours to emulate His cherished Heavenly Beloved every day in every way. I exalt You in the name of my big brother whom I idolize and desire to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Show You Great and Mighty Things

devine-communion

 ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’ Jeremiah 33:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The best education you can get is in the University of Jehovah. Man the courses provided there are unimaginable. One of the benefits of attending this university is that the courses are never ending. Just as you complete one another one begins. Just when you naively belief there is nothing else to learn something pops up that stuns and amazes you.

Yes there are exams but you cannot study for them. Either you have learned them or you have to repeat the course. There is no failing just that you need more tutoring to digest what is being taught.

Of course we have our mentor ( The Holy Spirit ) is on twenty four hour call. He may not answer your call all the time though. That is because He does not want you to get lazy and have Him do all your thinking for you. As you progress at this university you fall deeper and deeper in love with the faculty:

The headmaster is a kindly Father called Jehovah, the Head Teacher is a patient teacher by the name of Jesus Christ and the mentor is truly awesome the manner in which He tutors to each of us individually by the name of The Holy Spirit.

The more you are at this university the more time you desire to talk with these three incredible deans ( some call it prayer).

The admission price is accepting Jesus Christ as your savior, king and best friend. That you as such, have become His bondsman or woman ( which means you freely serve them out of love ). The invitation is open to all, rich and poor, young and old of every nationality.

Why do you not come join us?

The graduation services are held in a beautiful place that will be our eternal home, it is called Heaven.

“What wings are to a bird and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.” Corrie Ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with entry into the most amazing school there can every be with the most awesome teachers. Thank you for the free life time enrolment and for the patience with this some times dull witted student. I praise You in the name of He whose blood paid the tuition fee Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It is We Not Me.

christs-family

 Then I said to them, “You see the bad situation that we are in—how Jerusalem is desolate and lies in ruins and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, and let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we will no longer be a disgrace.” Nehemiah 2:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is we not me.

Those that stand alone fall, those that stand together will with stand the strongest storms. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is an important ingredient on your road to recovery. We all have destructive addictions. We cannot resolve them on our own, we need help. Therefore, it is we as in Jehovah and you not me that will provide the resolution.

How many of us make silly New Years Resolutions to quit these habits only to crash and burn when they try to accomplish it on their own?

How many succeed when they have councilors and trainers helping them?

The way to determine who is the best trainer and or councilor for you is to take it to Jehovah in prayer and be obedient unto His wise guidance. After all, who know you better the creator or the creation?

We will always fail in our attempts to live a Holy life because we are all imperfect.

Satan will use this opportunity to tear you down in an attempt to make you feel unworthy of being a member of Jehovah’s Holy family.

All is not lost.

Christ will never desert you. He will provide a way of restitution unto Him.

That , again , is why we need to surround ourselves with Godly councilors when we fall. They will not only help us deal with the reason for the fall but also help us to stand upon the Holy rock of Christ.

The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill [to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth]. Proverbs 1:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with wise councilors and trainers for my daily walk with You. They lead me away from catastrophes and towards Heavenly success towards my loving relationship with You and the Divine service unto You that You have chosen for me to take in my life dedicated unto You. I exalt You for this treasure in the name of the greatest provider 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.
