I am Afraid and Pray.

when-i-pray

 ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ ”Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This one has taken me decades to have faith in. I believe in our early walk with Christ we all have doubts about the validity of His word. Do not be ashamed. Read your Bible. How long did it take Moses. Abraham and Jacob to be blessed with absolute faith in our Heavenly Beloved? Decades.

Now, when there is circumstances beyond my control that look like they are heading for certain disaster, I am afraid and pray.

Jehovah comforts and reassures me. He walks with me through them.

Sometimes they are averted by Divine will.

Sometimes I must walk through them, with the Holy Spirit by my side, because Jehovah is teaching me something through this experience.

Now, when the wicked ones scheme and plot against me I am afraid and pray.

Again, Jehovah comforts and reassures me. I am filled with Divine peace and strength to face them. In the moment of confrontation the Holy Spirit fills me with His infinite wisdom and the wicked ones go down in flames. They are infuriated and confused where I gained the wisdom and strength. Jehovah laughs at them.

It is natural to be afraid when these and other circumstances occur in our lives.

The best Christian defense is to pray, wait and obey and grow in faith. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for walking with me through my troubles, snares and sorrows whenever I humbly cry out to You. Thank you in the name of He who is my best friend that is always there for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

And Obey It.

SERVE THE LORD

Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” Luke 11:28 Holy Bible, New International Version

I have heard too many so called Christians say: “Yes, I am a Christian, I read my Bible every day.” My reply is: “That is good but do you obey what is revealed to you in the Bible?”

Too many times I have heard too many so called Christians quote from the Bible to suit their own ends, like certain cults that says man is head of the house to enslave their wives and children to be blindly obedient to them like slaves.. My reply is :”Yes but Jesus said that He came to serve not to be served.” That means that the man is to put his family above himself. Then they tell me I am misquoting the Bible.

Do not tell me you read your bible every day, show me you obey what is says to you every day. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The amazing thing is the slow transformation that occurs when you put obedience to Jehovahs word in every aspect of your life. Most times you are not even aware of the new creation you have become. People who have not seen you for many years are amazed at the difference in your lifestyle. One of the positive results of this obedience is the surpassing amount of love, joy and peace there is in your life.

If Christ does not reign over the mundane events in our lives, He does not reign at all.” Dr. Paul Tripp

How about you?

Are you a Bible reader and quoter or are you a Bible obeyer?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in this child of Yours an obedient heart that is submissive to Your Divine will in every aspect of my life. I praise You in the name of Your most obedient Son Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Must Crucify it Daily.

work-in-progress

 

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 Holy Bible New International Version

When we are Christians we must daily crucify self for Christ.

Christ first, others second, self last. That is the daily mantra of every Christian. Joseph- Anthony: Green

One of the mantras of Christians should always be: Not my will but Thy will be done my Beloved Joseph –Anthony: Green

In other words we must always be praying, reading our Bibles and listening to sermons online (my favorite is sermonsaudio.com).

After all if we do not read our Bibles and or listen to sermons how is Christ going to speak with us?

Now He may give us instructions to do something we do not want to do. His will not ours take precedence.

Sometimes what is required of us is too great.

That is when we are to pray for the Holy Spirit to empower us to do Christ’s will.

I know for me it was forgiving someone who hurt me really bad. It took three months of praying before the forgiveness flowed.

So do not be frustrated if what is asked of you, you cannot do right away. Sometimes the Holy Spirit must work within your heart to heal the hurt and to teach you.

In my instance it was not just forgiveness but how to deal with a domineering abusive person.

Prayer: Please Jesus Immanuel (God amongst us) You gave the ultimate sacrifice to me. Open my heart and mind to sacrifice self to You in my daily life. I compliantly request this in Your wonderful name. Amen

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

Reliable and Trustworthy

true-friendship

 

 Let us seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word].Hebrews 10:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we become Christians we confess Christ as our Savior, King and best Friend.

We have all had friends that have let us down and even back stabbed us.

When Jesus is our bestest friend He is reliable and trust worthy. He never lets us down or back stabs us. His word is law. He promises to always be there with us and for us. He never lets us down. During our trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares we cling to His promise and it strengthen us to endure the hard times. As we progress in our walk with Him we become more confident in Him because He has proven Himself to be reliable and trustworthy.

Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength]. Romans 12:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We have all received conflicting and bad advice about our careers from others.

When we accept Christ as our King we follow the path He has chosen for us with hope (Hope in this manner is confidence in His divine guidance.) Many times He leads us where we do not understand where He is leading us but we trust in Him more and more along the journey because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy and reliable so far.

As death approaches us we are not worried about the unknown or the torment of Hell because we are confident in our hope that He as our Savior will be there to greet us to our Heavenly home. That is because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy and reliable all of our lives.

Jehovah promises and He always delivers on His promises. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to me in Your divine guidance in every aspect of my life. I praise You for this precious treasure in the name of my faithful king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Satisfy the Heart

heart-at-peace

 In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust. Psalm 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Bible

Today I see so much anger, depression and stress.

Do you wonder why?

Many say it is because we live in such a fast paced world where folks want instant gratification.

When I walk, sit down and enjoy communion with my Beloved in Gods Cathedral (nature) I experience peace and tranquility such as may be blessed in no other manner.

Many say it is because with the electronic and internet world there is no face to face conversations anymore and society does not nurture personal relationships.

No matter where I am Jehovah is always there and we share casual and deep conversations. He never puts me on hold, is too busy or bored to share communion with me. We enjoy a deep loving, respectful relationship.

Many face deep depression because they have no one to talk with and listen to them or bless them with wise advice.

Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Jehovah is always there for me when I need Him. He patiently listens to my cries and when I am exhausted he blesses me with His gentle love ans peace. Then He blesses me with Divine wisdom to resolve all my problems.

Read your Bible about what Jesus experienced when he walked amongst us. There is not one thing you are going through that he has not experienced.

What are you waiting for Child?

Jehovah is waiting for you with open loving arms. Go to Him and He will bless you with Heavenly peace, love and joy.

“Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?” Gerard Majella

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace through the many storms in my life. Thank you with blessing me with Your Heavenly joy that is only nurtured through daily communion with You. Thank you for blessing me with the most awesome love affair there ever was, is and can be. I thank you for these cherished treasures through the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

His Education can Wipe Out His Education.

HIS INSTRUCTION

 Now a priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came to draw water and fill the troughs to water their father’s flock. Some shepherds came along and drove them away, but Moses got up and came to their rescue and watered their flock. When the girls returned to Reuel their father, he asked them, “Why have you returned so early today?” They answered, “An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds. He even drew water for us and watered the flock.” “And where is he?” Reuel asked his daughters. “Why did you leave him? Invite him to have something to eat.” Moses agreed to stay with the man, who gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage. Exodus 2:16-21 New International Version

Moses was raised in Pharaoh’s court and learnt the religion and customs of Egypt which was satanic. After running for his life he encountered a priest of Jehovah. He spent the next forty years learning from him.

That is the way with us.

It does not matter if you were involved with a satanic cult, with boozers and partiers or corporate greed, when you become a Christian that knowledge will be over ridden by the Holy Spirit in you giving you knowledge and ability to live a Godly life. It will be a lifetime of learning and improving. You will fall but the Holy Spirit will give you the strength and ability to get back up again on your walk to Heaven.

“Fall seven times, stand up eight.” — Japanese Proverb

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the wisdom to walk away from a wicked lifestyle towards a righteous lifestyle which is the superior lifestyle. Thank you for not condemning me when I occasionally stumble and fall. Thank you for picking me back up and continue to lead me down the trail to our Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of the most exalent teacher of all Jesus Christ. AMEN.

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

The Question is, Who Listens?

gods-word

 Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience]. Psalm 34:11 Amplified Bible

No, that is not your conscience speaking to you, that is the Holy Spirit.

The devil is an expert at twisting the truth into a lie so if you depend upon your “conscience” you are easy prey for Him.

Then how will you know if it is the Holy Spirit or the devil?

The answer is in developing a deep personal relationship with Jehovah by reading your Bible and obeying what it says.

From my personal experience when I am reading the Bible and a verse jumps out at me, that is the Holy Spirit speaking to me. I stop reading and pray for enlightenment. Then he guide me to understanding the Bible verse in context to what He is saying about my life.

Another way is to listen to good sermon like on sermonaudio and reading good Christian books like can be found on sites like goodread and https://www.gutenberg.org (personally my preference is for the old classics). Of course we should also have godly Christian councilors.

The problem I have sadly witnessed too frequently is that even when others know Jehovah is speaking to them the deliberately chose to ignore Him because he is telling them something they do not want to hear. They want their way, not Jehovahs. That is a sure recipe for disaster. Then when catastrophes occur they go cry babying to Jehovah and ask why He is doing this to them.

God is speaking to all of us, all the time. The question is not, to whom does God talk? The question is, who listens? Neale Donald Walsch

Are you experiencing difficulties in your life right now?

Are you listening to Jehovah as He is speaking to you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with patiently teaching me to be wise, gracious, humble and meek like my Beloved King Jesus. Thank you for the tools You have blessed me with to receive an ever deepening of these blessings. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Rabbi of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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