The Best Cheerleader.

gods-word

God who gives endurance and who supplies encouragement. Romans 15:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In many group sports they have cheerleaders. Their purpose is to encourage the team, especially when they are down in the score.

The best cheerleader for life of course is The Holy Spirit.

He provides us with physical, mental and spiritual endurance for the race Jehovah has chosen for us to run. He has various methods to accomplish this from the Holy Bible , to preachers to fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

It is when we are at our lowest that we appreciate the most Jehovahs helping hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same can be said for encouragement.

I cannot count the number of times I was ready to quit and then someone came and blessed me with encouraging words and help to see me through the tough times. I cannot count the number of times when a preacher sounded as if he was speaking directly to me from Jehovah that it lifted me up and strengthen me to carry on with zest. This is repeated through music as well as just spending quiet time with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with the many wonderful ways You have encouraged me when I was ready to give up. Thank you for helping me regain my strength to carry on Your Holy path You have chosen for me to travel down. I exalt You in the name of He who encouraged His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is We Not Me.

christs-family

 Then I said to them, “You see the bad situation that we are in—how Jerusalem is desolate and lies in ruins and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, and let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we will no longer be a disgrace.” Nehemiah 2:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is we not me.

Those that stand alone fall, those that stand together will with stand the strongest storms. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is an important ingredient on your road to recovery. We all have destructive addictions. We cannot resolve them on our own, we need help. Therefore, it is we as in Jehovah and you not me that will provide the resolution.

How many of us make silly New Years Resolutions to quit these habits only to crash and burn when they try to accomplish it on their own?

How many succeed when they have councilors and trainers helping them?

The way to determine who is the best trainer and or councilor for you is to take it to Jehovah in prayer and be obedient unto His wise guidance. After all, who know you better the creator or the creation?

We will always fail in our attempts to live a Holy life because we are all imperfect.

Satan will use this opportunity to tear you down in an attempt to make you feel unworthy of being a member of Jehovah’s Holy family.

All is not lost.

Christ will never desert you. He will provide a way of restitution unto Him.

That , again , is why we need to surround ourselves with Godly councilors when we fall. They will not only help us deal with the reason for the fall but also help us to stand upon the Holy rock of Christ.

The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill [to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth]. Proverbs 1:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with wise councilors and trainers for my daily walk with You. They lead me away from catastrophes and towards Heavenly success towards my loving relationship with You and the Divine service unto You that You have chosen for me to take in my life dedicated unto You. I exalt You for this treasure in the name of the greatest provider Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Too Heavy

 

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you. Psalm 55:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all encounter problems in our lives.

Too many of us falsely believe that we are weak if we cannot solve these challenges on our own ( especially men ).

Indeed in many countries it is considered a shame and disgrace to even admit you have a problem.

It is too heavy for you to carry on your own shoulders. That is where we Christians are blessed with an advantage over those of the world.

How many folks go to a psychiatrist with their problems only to be prescribed drugs , which of course only makes the problem worse. Look at all those who commit hienious offenses like mass murderers only to find out they were diagnosed with mental problems and were only given drugs. I have seen it numerous times in big cites.

How many go to psychiatrists only to be told it is not your fault but societies or your families while being absolved of their responsibility?

To sustain means to give support as does uphold.

The best councilor to go to is of course Jehovah. He is all wise and will help you the best and support you though the difficult experience. That will probably mean He will guide you to Christian councilors.

I have been blessed with this guidance and it was the most beneficial to me.

When you encounter problems in your life and we all will continually experience these plagues until Christ takes us to our Heavenly home ,you have a choice ; one try to deal with it on your own , good luck with that one two go to those in the world with limited knowledge , which usually is useless from those I have seen go that route or go to the best source form wisdom ,strength and healing Jehovah God Almighty. That is the most successful route I have taken as well as many others I have encountered.

Jehovah or the world choose wisely. Your life depends upon it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH- Ropheka : “The Lord Who Heals for blessing me with Your gently loving healing whenever I encounter any and all problems in my life whether it be through Your Divine will or whether it be through Your Divine providence to Christian guidance councilors and others that will assist me. I extol Thee in the name of the best Healer of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Worry Leads to Impatience

god-is-already-there

Do not fret; it leads only to evil. Psalm 37:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fret means to worry.

Have we not all fretted on more than one occasion?

I used to be a first class worry wort. If things did not happen in my time , I would take matters into my own hands. When the crash and burn happened my cry unto Jehovah was always the same : “ Jehovah , where were You , why did You not help me. “ He of course was not to fault but it was my own fault. It took me many years to wait upon His time , in His way.

I used to believe I was a patient man until I became a Christian and had to wait upon Jehovahs timing , not my own. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I believe not only was He teaching me patience but also to have and enlarge my faith.

Worry leads to impatience waiting for Jehovah to answer. Impatience leads to arrogance which says I will not wait for the Lords answer. This leads us to take matters into our own hands. This , of course , leads to disaster. Joseph- Anthony: Green

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

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with teaching me to always have faith and to be patient to wait upon Your time in Your way in every aspect of my life. I know You are faithful unto me to never leave me nor desert me. I praise You in the name of He who waited three days in the tomb before rising to eternal glory Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

If You Do This.

when-i-pray

 Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart
And do not rely on your own insight
or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Here is perhaps the most important advice to be given in your life: “ Wait and pray. “

Before you sign any contract ask for a copy of it to take home to read over it. You will avoid the pressure sales talk that way which can and does lead to disaster. If they refuse to allow you this right do not walk away , run. The only reason they will refuse to allow you to study it is because it is a bad contract. They are experts and making poo poo look like sugar and prey upon foolish suckers.

A wise man depends upon Jehovah for guidance , a foolish man depends upon his own faulty thinking. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Before you read it , humbly pray for the Holy Spirits guidance. When you read it He will point out things that you do not understand or find acceptable. High light them with a marker. Then put it down and again, pray for understanding of what you do not understand and how to wisely discuss it with the other party to meet your satisfactory requirements and sit silently for His answer. Wait and pray before you sign on the dotted line. He may not answer you right away but be patient, He will answer you. When He answers you, write it down. Then , when you encounter the one making the offer have faith that His wisdom will secure you a favourable contract.

This is my modus operandi and it has prevented me from entering into many disastrous contracts.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with Your voice through the Holy Spirit when negotiating all contracts. Through this blessing You have prevented me from enslaving me in noxious contracts with snakes in the grass. I praise You in the name of He who saw through the shams of the Scribes and Pharisee’s Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Your Comforts Delight Me.

he-gives-peace

 When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your comforts delight me. Psalm 94:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

I recently heard a report about mental illness that stated one in five folks suffer from mental illness such as depression.

Why do you want to poison your mind and body with chemicals ( some like those with ADHS do require daily medication ) to treat this ailment?

Why not go to the best source for mental healing?

His name is Jehovah and He is deeply in love with you.

When you pour your heart out to Him when suffering depression , anguish, anger and confusion He will guide you.

He may guide you to Bible verses which encourage and strengthen you , He may guide you to resources like Christian therapists or guidance councillors which will help you deal with the core issues and help you make the right decisions.

As your healing begins and continues you will become more and more delighted with the results.

This will increase your love , respect and admiration for our amazing Heavenly Fathers love for you.

It sickens me to hear these liars spew forth this nonsense that if you just believe in yourself and try harder you will succeed.

That is wrong, misguided , satanic and downright evil.

Even if I believe in myself and try real hard I will not grown wings and fly like an eagle.

Follow the worlds advice and increase your suffering or follow Jehovahs advice and be eternally healed. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your Divine word , strength, encouragement and guidance through my numerous trials and tribulations . If not for You my believed I would never have survived the ordeals. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Teacher Jesus Christ . Amen

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

I will Look in Triumph

CHRISTS POWER

 People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. John 3:19-20 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

When I first became a Christian it confused me why certain folks hated me with a passion even though I did nothing to offend them.

After reading this first the Lord blessed me with understanding.

They hate all Christians because we who walk in the Light convict those that enjoy walking in the darkness. They know what they are doing is wrong ( the Holy Spirit convicts them ) yet steadfastly refuse to repent of their wicked ways. They laugh and say that either there is no God or He does not care.

When they encounter us true Christians their conscience is pricked and they do not like it.

Then in their evil perverted minds they conceive every torment they can upon us and laugh at our discomfort. They foolishly believe they are getting away with it.

Time and again it clearly states that Jehovah is a God of justice and He will deliver terrifying justice on His time and in His way.

From my experience those whom the wicked tormented will be witnesses to it. I certainly did not enjoy it, indeed , many times I wanted to cry watching them suffer, but accept that Jehovah cannot allow the wicked to go unpunished.

Those who walk in Christ will be avenged in Gods time in Gods way. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We do not gloat over it but allow it to digest into our heart and mind so that we can share this testimony with other tormentors in the hopes that they will repent.

As well, it is encouraging to those who are being wickedly persecuted. The Lord is on my side, He is among those who help me;

Therefore I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for condemning the wicked ones and delivering true justice to the wicked ones that inflict pain and suffering upon the innocent ones. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ . Amen

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

What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered Jesus Christ . Amen

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

He Will Save You.

HAVE COURAGE

 Say to those with an anxious and panic-stricken heart, “Be strong, fear not! He will save you.” Isaiah 35:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxious is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty.

We have all experienced anxiousness in our lives.

The difference between Christians and those of the world is that they have no where to turn to to provide them with concrete assurances that those they go to for help are in control and to fill them with peace.

We as Christians have the confidence in Jehovah who controls everything.

When we are obedient unto His guidance He will sooth out fears, comfort us and guide us to the best path to take out of the dark forest of uncertainty that envelopes us in whatever the circumstance is that is causing us apprehension.

Panic is defined as the emotion experienced in the presence or threat of danger.

Again those who are of the world panic when disaster is looming or is striking them. Those of us who belong unto Christ have His assurance that He will either walk through the fire with us like He did with  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

He answered, “Look! I see four men untied, walking around in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt! And the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”  Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the blazing furnace and said, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, servants of the Most High God, come out [of there]! Come here!” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego came out of the midst of the fire. The satraps, the prefects, the governors and the king’s counselors gathered around them and saw that in regard to these men the fire had no effect on their bodies — their hair was not singed, their clothes were not scorched or damaged, even the smell of smoke was not on them Daniel 3:25-27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Or , He will deliver us from the storm like He did His disciples.

But as they were sailing, He fell asleep. And a fierce gale of wind swept down [ as if through a wind tunnel ] on the lake, and they began to be swamped, and were in great danger. 24 They came to Jesus and woke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are about to die!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging, violent waves, and they ceased, and it became calm [a perfect peacefulness]. Luke 8:23-25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Those were real events Christian and are available unto You Jehovahs cherished child when you , in faith , call out unto Him.

I know , I have been through many furnaces and raging storms with Him in our walk towards the Heavenly home He has prepared for me.

“Knowing that I am not the one in control gives great encouragement. Knowing the One who is in control is everything.” — Alexander Michael

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being there with me through my numerous trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares . Through all my pain and hardships . I could not have made it without Your comforting , reassuring and strengthening presence. I exalt You in the name of He who calmed the stroms of His disciples storms Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Is Your Head Hurting?

RESTLESS HEART

 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you restless and disturbed within me?
Hope in God
and wait expectantly for Him. Psalm 42:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Despair is the state of being discouraged.

Is your head hurting from walking into walls ? You know the feeling , like no matter what you try it is like walking into a wall. You are pounding the pavement looking for employment yet it seems as if every door is closed. You have tried all kinds of different medical treatment yet your ailment is getting worse. Of course there is the wonderful experience of raising teenagers and they refuse to listen to you ( that has been going on for eons. ) .

The list could continue for a long time couldn’t it ?

To hope for something is to believe in the future occurrence of (something).

We are children of the Supreme God , children. Take hope that He loves you and because He loves you He will come to your aid in Him time in His way. His answer may not be what you desire however He is far more wiser than you. As a consequence He knows what is best for you far better that you do.

I know, there have been many times when I desired something in my life and passionately prayed for our Beloveds blessing to have it come to fruition. He did not. At the time I was bitterly disappointed. In reflection I see the wise providence of His hand that if He had of granted me my desire it would have been a disaster.

On the other hand there have been event that I fervently prayed for every day for decades. Finally He blessed me that they blossomed into reality. Again I understand why it took Him so long to grant my request and am joyously grateful for His blessings.

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your Divine abundant assistance throughout my life. I thank you that You refused some requests that would have led to certain disaster and for answering those that bring about joyous events that will glorify You. I exuberantly praise You in the name He whose sacrifice answered my call for salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

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