To All You Bigheads.

 The Son of Man must [of necessity] suffer many things and be rejected [as the Messiah] by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and must be put to death, and after three days rise [from death to life]. Mark 8:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is to all you bigheads. You know, the ones who are so full of themselves they have bigheads ( they are full of pride).

Before you go around participating in your favourite hobby, bragging about all of your wonderful, magnificent amazing accomplishments compare it to what Christ did.

Jesus suffered being unjustly beaten and tortured for all of humanity, what have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the agony of being nailed to a cross and hanging there for six long horrendous hours for all of those willing to accept His gift of His precious blood is the key to Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus willingly stayed on the cross and watched His beloved mother watch Him suffer a shameful death. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the vile ones laughing at Him, spitting on Him and making fun of Him so that we who accept Him as our Savior can become citizens of Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus died so that we who accept Him as our Heavenly Brother are adopted into an amazing Heavenly family. What have you done to compare with that?

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.” Isaac Watts

Kinda brings you down off of your high horse doesn’t it?

I know it does me when I begin to become bigheaded.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Yasha ( The Lord my Savior) for meditating upon Your awesomeness for what You have so graciously done for me to wipe clean all of my filthy sins upon my repentance. It helps to keep me humble in comparison to what You have done for me compared to what I have done for You and for myself. I adore You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Not Need Thee.

the-lord-is-my-strength

 Therefore let the one who thinks he stands firm [immune to temptation, being overconfident and self-righteous], take care that he does not fall [into sin and condemnation].1 Corinthians 10:12 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I know a man that when he first gave up drinking he was arrogant and self confident. He and his wife believed this was accomplished upon their own effort and bragged about it every day for three months. Then we did not see him nor his wife for four months. They hung their heads in shame as they confessed they fell off the wagon. They drank away all their savings, lost their house their boat and car as well as their business.

“O God, never suffer us to think that we can stand by ourselves, and not need Thee.” — John Donne

One time when doing volunteer work in a hospital I was escorting an alcoholic to the detox. He said something I that has haunted me ever since:” Be careful because we are all one step from the gutter. “

When we walk away from Jehovah we walk towards certain disaster. “ Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for always walking with me day by day. I so absolutely require Your wisdom, guidance, provision and protection every day in every way. I gratefully thank You in the name of he who walks amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Does Not Leave the Guilty Unpunished.

SCAMMERS PAY

Maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished. Exodus 34:7 Holy Bible, New King James Version

No matter how long we have walked with our Beloved we are still sinners. We all have our weak moments when we surrender to sin. Sometimes we know what Jehovah is saying in our lives but because it is not what we want to hear we rebel against His wise guidance. Of course, when we repent (repent means admitting what we did was wrong, apologizing for it and ceasing to commit the offensive behaviour or attitude) with a sincere heart Jehovah is quick to forgive by the grace of His beautiful sons precious blood.

Even the strongest saint is still a wicked sinner. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now as for the arrogant who even refuse to acknowledge Jehovahs existence much less accept His authority there is nothing for them but Jehovahs terrible just punishment. You cannot deceive, con or manipulate Jehovah and there is none of this nonsense of “it is not my fault but ____________ {fill in the blank, i.e. I came from a poor family, my race, it is soceites fault ect. Ect. Ect..} fault. His punishment here on earth is that they will suffer seven times what they did unto others and in death a damnation of an eternal residence in Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for Your amazing grace that I undeservedly am blessed with when I repent of my filthy sins unto You. Thank you as well for the assurance that the wicked in this world may foolishly believe that they are getting away with their wickedness but cannot escape Your Divine true justice being cast down upon them like devouring blazing coals upon their evil wicked heads. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Set Aside Self-Righteous Pride.

fruit-of-the-spirit

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever been in the company of the : I did” s You know the type, they cannot say a complete sentence without saying: “ I did this.” or : : I did that. “. To me I find it an extremely annoying experience and want to tell them : “ You are not the only person in the world you know.” Some times I do. You should see the look of indignation on their faces.

On the other hand I just go about serving the Lord quietly. Yes, He has taken me many incredible places and accomplished amazing things through me. Some times during a conversation these experiences will be shared with others. They look at me in amazement and comment that I have lived an incredible life. To me there is nothing incredible about it but I give Jehovah the glory because with out Him nothing would have been accomplished. Folks are always asking me to share these experiences with them because they find them so fascinating and interesting.

The good part though is that through sharing these experiences with them it encourages them and strengthens them through their hard times to go to Jehovah.

As well, it helps some of them to see just what Jehovah can do in their lives when they surrender to Him and place their faith in Him.

Give credit for your accomplishments where it belongs, to Jehovah, not you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your overflowing  benevolence of opportunities to exhibit the awesome possibilities Your provide to those with an obedient heart unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who accomplished amazing feats because He walked in honour and obedience unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

They Lose More than They Gain

SCAMMERS PAY

But they lie in wait for their own blood, They lurk secretly for their own lives. So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners. Proverbs 1:18-19 New King James Version

As I grow older the more I see the righteous hand of Jehovah in the wicked ones lives. When they are young they laugh and believe they are getting away with scamming others. They become bitter, lonely and poor financially. Many in their old age cry and beg to die to end their pain but they must live on in a daily life of living hell. In life, they lose more than they gain. Go to a seniors home and watch those who have no visitors ( now some times they are far from family and friends so they miss them), ask those who knew them in their younger age and you will find they were scammers, deceivers and manipulators who cared about nothing and no one but themselves. Now in their final years that is all they have, themselves. In life, they lose more than they gain.

As well, I have seen those whose only goal in life is to get the most toys. They will lie, cheat and steal to get what they want. At some time they realize that those toys cannot love them in return and they have wasted their lives on what is actually very frivolous. In life, they lose more than they gain.

The problem is that the heart of the greedy and Hell have this in common: they always scream”I want more, more, more, they are never satisfied.” Joseph- Anthony:Green

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-Naheh (the Lord who Smites) for delivering true justice to the wicked ones for their evil ways. I humbly exalt You in the name of he who defeats all evil Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are you his sword?

josephs-quotes-fault-finders

 

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 New Living Translation

Whether it is with a Christian or non Christian, when you are being pompously judgmental with others what opinion will others have of Christ when you claim to be a Christian?

Is Satan laughing while your words pierce the hearts of others?

Could this attitude drive people away from Christ rather than too Him?

Are you being a sword of Satan and driving through the receptive hearts of others?

When I was a teacher I would encourage students to come to church with me. Every Sunday it was the same filth of Satans followers pretending to be Christians with their arrogant self righteous behavior that would spew forth their poison (and most of them were elders in the congregation) . When my students saw this they refused to ever go to church again. Many refused to even discuss Jesus. They would say: “Jesus is supposed to be love, teacher that was anything but love.”

Whether you want to accept it or not, your words and deeds reflect Jesus when you claim to be one of His servants.

Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. Galatians 5:26 New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) guide my words to be encouraging and healing so that they will bring praise and glory to Your loving name. In the name of the greatest orator Jesus Christ I humbly ask. Amen.

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