A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Book of Wisdom

 The thoughts and purposes of the [consistently] righteous are just (honest, reliable). But the counsels and schemes of the wicked are deceitful Proverbs 12:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One thing I have learned in my long walk with Christ is that a good name is worth more than a big bank account. There have been times when I was honest even though it cost me a little with local merchants ( Like one time I forgot to pay for an item that cost a dollar and walked two miles back to pay for it. Most folks laughed and thought I was stupid. However, now that merchant always gives me better deals than they do anyone else. Now, they are indignant and ask what makes me so special? ).

The deeds you do today will be rewarded tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The other benefit of being honest is that I sleep good at night while the dishonest worry about getting caught ( which they always do ). Most dishonest people suffer numerous health problems and they can all be traced back to stress caused by worry of getting caught and being greedy.

“A godly mind prizes honor above worldly good.” Rembrandt

I know of one man that I asked to help me and he replied that he could not because he did not have gas money to come here to help me and then he went out fishing. Now whenever he tries to scam me ( scamming is where you try to get something from someone without giving anything in return) he is reminded that if he does not have gas money to help me he does not have gas money to scam anything out of me, it drives him nuts.

“All human sin seems so much worse in its consequences than in its intentions.” Reinhold Niebuhr

The greatest reward of being honest is the blessing of becoming closer to my Beloved in Heaven. As a consequence He warns me of those who deal dishonestly.

I have seen many say that they believe that everything that they touch is cursed, but if they reflect back on their life they will see that they were extremely dishonest with others so yes Jehovahs hand is against them. The stupid thing is that they know if they turn from their wicked ways Jehovah will not only stop curing them but will begin to bless them yet they refuse to stop being dishonest.

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom” Thomas Jefferson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori ( the Lord is my Light ) for blessing me with Your light of truth and integrity in my life. It has proven the true manner in which to walk in my daily life. I praise You in the name of the Light of the World Jesus Christ. 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.

Corrupts Good Morals.

WRONG WALK

 Do not be unequally bound together with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness ? 2 Corinthians 6:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Can a wolf live together with a deer ?

Of course not.

Why not ?

Because the first chance given the wolf will attack and devour the deer.

Can the antelope live together with the lion ? Of course not.

Why not ?

Because the first chance given the lion will attack and devour the antelope.

Can those who walk in the light of Christ be friends of those who walk in the darkness of Satan ?

Of course not.

Why not ?

Because everything they love we Christians hate and everything we Christians hate everything they love. It is even more important not to be unevenly yoked with unbelievers in marriage. That is a recipe for certain disaster and heart ache.

That does not mean we cannot work with them and be respectful towards them but we are to avoid friendships with them as their destructive manner and disposition will slowly destroy our divine manner and disposition. It will start out slowly without you even noticing it like a small patch of rust on a vehicle. But, just as the rust will slowly destroy the vehicle if not eradicated immediately so too will the uncircumcised of heart destroy our heart towards Christ slowly but surely un-noticed until it is too late for the foolish ones that play with the devils fire.

Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with Your Divine Heavenly and Your guidance towards those who are walking in the light. Thank you for Your Divine providence in warning me of the destructive wolfs out there that only seek to use and abuse others for their own wicked ends and to drive us away from You. I exalt You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Listen and Obey

GIVE IT ALL

Listen and obey.

Know, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

I know in today’s world of greed, corruption and self centeredness it is difficult to obey this command but it is the only way.

Everybody else cheats on exams why can’t you?

Well, maybe because when the graduate and try to get a contract the contractor will see you do not have the understanding or skill to perform your duties. Everybody else steals at work why can’t I? Well, maybe you will be the one that gets caught. Not only will you be dismissed but good luck on getting a decent job with theft from the company on your record and maybe a criminal record as well.

Why should I give to the food bank or animal shelter?

It is more important that I enjoy my coffee at a gourmet shop that overcharges so I can look good to others. There will come a time when you need help and no one will help you. Don’t fool yourself, it happens all the time.

On the other hand, there have been many times when I needed help and someone in an unusual way always comes to help me. There have been numerous times someone is lost and I guide them right to where they are looking to go. Then, there are so many numerous times I have experienced the same kindness reciprocated to me.

There is an old saying: what goes around, comes around.

Oh how hard the arrogant fall and what shame it is to them when it happens. I have seen so many puffed up arrogant swine be brought down into the gutter when they think everybody below them lives. What a mockery they are to everyone. Now they very people they snubbed are the ones that are their neighbours.

On the other hand, I have seen those who are humble before God and they always live a blessed life all their years.

Not my will, but Thy will be done should be front and center in every moment of the day. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with the strength and wisdom to be a child of righteousness that Your holiness will come shining through. May this create an opportunity to share Your grace with others and guide them to Your righteous family. I ask in the name of Him who never compromised His high morals and showed divine grace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Corrupts Good Habits

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 

Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 New King James Version

Have you ever gotten into the bad crowd because it looked like they were so cool?

I did.

When I was a teenager in the seventies I got in with the “hippies”. I thought the lifestyle of no rules and free living was cool. After a couple of months I stopped reading my Bible, stopped praying and slowly changed. One day I took stock of my life and saw it was empty and without love or cause.

It was rough but after a year I was completely free from that lifestyle and began reading my Bible and praying again. Slowly my relationship with our Beloved took on a deeper meaning and joy.

The same goes for free sex or gambling or drinking or any other worldly bad habits.

Do not be deceived.

It may look like fun to begin with but will only lead you into a living hell.

After many decades I retuned to my hometown. Sometimes I would meet these “hippies” . Even though we are the same age they look like they are over a hundred. Their health is shot and their lives wasted, even they themselves admit this.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi ( God our Sheppard) guide me along the path of righteousness so that Your blessing of love and purpose will follow me all the way t Your Heavenly home. I humbly request this in the name of He who only walked the walk You had prepared for Him while He was with us here on earth Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                        

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