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.

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.

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.

You are Precious in My Sight

gods-love

  “Because you are precious in My sight, You are honored and I love you. Isaiah 43:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Earthly lovers such as your parents or husband or wife, or siblings or friends will always let you down. Welcome to life.

But there is one with whom you are always love , cherished and adored. His name is Jehovah. He loved you so much He allowed His most cherished Son to die a slow agonizing humiliating death on a cross for you.

Of course if you desert Him , He will desert you. Being loved by Him does not permit you license to abuse Him by continually , willingly living a sinful life.

There has been so many occasions when I was communing with Him that He graciously favoured me with but a minute flalvour of His awesome love. Every molecule in my body was electrified and my heart could not stop shouting : “ I love You my Beloved , I love You. “

There is no sex , drugs or other material fleshly desires that can even begin to compare with this incredible experience.

Then , there are other times when it is sweet , gentle and reassuring that fills me with peace , comfort , love and joy. He truly is an awesome God.

It is amazing to know that one such as the Almighty loves a sinner such as me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: I exalt You Jehovah Heseh (God is love) my cherished Beloved for the most treasured blessing in my existence , that of relishing an amazing loving relationship with You. I praise You for this cherished gift in the name of my Beloved Saviour whose blood made it all possible 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.

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.
