Wisdom is Having.

listen-to-our-wise-elders

Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I love to learn and am always willing to watch, listen, learn and be thankful towards my mentors. As a result there have been many disasters averted in my life.

A wise man listens, learns and obeys . Joseph- Anthony: Green

As for being self disciplined that requires the blessing of the Holy Spirit. We are all weak from time to time and need His infinite strength to get us through some trial and temptations. This as well has helped me avert many disasters in my life.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Knowledge comes from experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have seen far too many idiots continue upon the same road to disaster. No it is not repeating the same mistake.

The first time it is a mistake, after that it is just pain stupid and stubborn. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have seen way too many needlessly suffer because of this.

When I was treeplanting I would take the rookies and teach them the proper way to plant ( there was a lot more to it than just slamming a tree into the ground ) at the geginnig of the season.. I was not paid to do this but did it because of the graciousness in my heart. As they honed their skills they began to plant more trees. We were paid by how many trees we planted so they began to make a lot more money. Then there were always the: “ I know, I knows.’ ). These are the ones that when I offered to teach them to plant they would always say I know what I am doing, I know. As a result they would work twice as hard as the ones that listened to me and make one third the amount of money.

Stupidness and stubbornness go hand in hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

There is a price to pay for stupidity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for all of Your patience and wisdom you have blessed me with through my walk with You. It has been a true God send in my life. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He has Done the Impossible.

wild-tulips-growing-in-the-shade-alond-a-gentle-stream

 “For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I am constantly amazed with my Beloved at what He has done and is doing in my life. So many times He has done the impossible.

When I was an alcoholic and cried out unto Him in anguish to smash the chains of this horrible addiction He instantly smashed them ( that has been eight years without a drink).

When I prayed that my relatives would come unto Him, one has now returned to church for the first time in fifty years and she is bringing her friends to church who have gone just as long (that one took about thirty years of praying before He succeeded ).

When I prayed for bad dispositions to be exiled from me ( I was vindictive and spiteful) He guided me to good Christian councilors and between Him and them they were cast out from me with the help of the Holy Spirit. Now when they come a knocking I go to Jehovah in prayer and He releases me from the urge. 

There has been so many times he has accomplished amazing things in my life that I believed were impossible.

Is there anything in your life you need help with but believe all is lost?

Completely surrender it unto Jehovah and watch Him accomplish the impossible in your life. “We have a God who delights in impossibilities.” — Andrew Murray

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with always graciously abundantly providing for me is so many amazing ways. I glorify You in the name of Your best provision, my Beloved savior Christ Jesus. Amen

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

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.
