They Get Their One Upance.

SPINNING PINK ON GREEN

Fools mock at making amends for sin, but goodwill is found among the upright. Proverbs 14:9 New International Version

The proud believe they will not lower themselves to apologize for their sins. God promises revenge upon the unrepentant. The fools do not believe justice is coming their way but a time will come when they get their one upance and it will afflict them seven times worse than it does for the repentant.

The repentant find grace when they fess up to their sins and forgiveness. As well they gain respect.

There have been times when I did wrong to someone (either knowingly or unwittingly) and I repented of them face to face (that is the mature thing to do as a letter is for the weak and is insincere). If the wrong was done in public the repentance was done in public, if it was done in private the repentance was done in private.  Many times the one I had done wrong to had authority over me and could have severely punished me. They were so impressed with my humbleness and sincerity that they did not punish me.

Now if it was due I repaid for the sin (for example one time I over estimated the work done and was paid for it. When I realized the mistake and discussed it with the contractor he was so impressed he refused to accept the money I offered in repayment). Everybody on the contract thought I was crazy to do this but my conscience with my Beloved and with my employer was clear.

If you have done someone wrong, go make amends quickly, the longer you wait the more difficult it becomes.

If you are arrogant do not laugh it off and think you are getting away with it, it will catch up to you.

You only think you are getting away with it. God will get you back seven times seven in His time, in His way. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for convicting me when I did wrong and teaching the proper manner to make what was done wrong done right. I pray You convict others in the same manner so as to avoid Your terrible and just punishment towards the unrepentant.  I humble pray this in the name of the true judge of justice Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They Have Increased.

gentle quiet emerald stream flowing through jungle

Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.
Many are they who say of me, “There is no help for him in God.”                                                                                          But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill.                                                                                     I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.                                         Arise, O Lord; Save me, O my God!
For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;
You have broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongs to the Lord.
Your blessing is upon Your people. Psalm 3 New King James Version             

When we are Christians there is no shortage of tormentors who love to intentionally antagonize us. They are constant thorns in our sides serving their god, Satan. They laugh and foolishly believe they are getting away with it. For a while it seems as if they are but then Jehovah strikes suddenly and terribly. I have seen it numerous times. When we go to bed and pray to our Beloved about the unwarranted affliction our persecutors are throwing our way He not only hears us but blesses us with peace and a good nights sleep (which antagonizer   rarely experience). This is what always happens to me.

Be not afraid of them for they are this way because they are living a miserable life and want to drag everybody they can into that miserable lifestyle with them.

I pray for them and inform them of such. That torments them. I do not do it to torment them but to reconcile with them if possible (and most times it is not because of their disposition). They end up leaving me alone.

Beware, Jehovah does not take kindly to those who abuse His children and how great your suffering will be. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Gador Milchamah  (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for soundly defeating every foe that aggravates this child of Your  unjustly to satisfy their perverted pleasure. The victory is Yours  my love as is my unyielding respect, admiration and love. I laud You in the name of my cherished warrior king Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Not My Neighbour.

GOING GODS WAY

Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 1 Peter 1:17 New International Version                                                                                                         

It does not matter what others say in ridicule or scorn to me, I want to live so that I will hear Him say to me” Well done good and faithful servant.” Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                               

When I was a teenager it drove me crazy with everyone telling how to live my life with each being different from the other. I could not please everybody so I pleased nobody, especially myself. To say I was miserable was an understatement. I was confused and frustrated to the max each and every day.                                                              

When faithfully obeying the Holy Spirits leading I slowly learned that Jehovah had a plan for my life and that He had a purpose for me.         

Jesus does not care if you are rich or poor, a sports athlete or permanently crippled in a wheelchair, whether you are handsome or bland, what colour you are or what country you come from.                   What he cares about it that you are faithful and obedient to His calling in your life. And, He does have a calling for each and every one of us, His servants.                                                                                                      

To be in reverent fear means to be respectful.                                              

As Jesus is our King so too are we His servants. We are to be respectful and obedient to our King and in our service to our King.                           

It is to Him and Him alone that we owe allegiance to and not any country or relative.                                                                                     

Jesus is my judge not my neighbour nor relatives nor friends. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                         

People are fickle. Today you are a hero and tomorrow you are a has been.  People minds are limited and clouded by their own desires. Every time I followed a man or womans advice without consulting Jehovah first it the endeavor ended  in disaster.                               

Whose judgment concerns you more: people or Jesus’?                        

Be careful, your eternal destiny depends upon this important decision.                                   

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is My Judge) bless me with guidance and strength to always be an obedient son unto You in my walk towards Your Heavenly home You have lovingly prepared for me. I sincerely request this in the name of my beloved King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

They Knew It to be Wicked.

 

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.

So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.”

And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door.   Genesis 19: 4- 9 New King James Version                                                                                                                                                                  

Do you notice that the men of Sodom were so wicked they wanted to rape the two angels even though they knew it to be wicked?                                                                                                                              

 So too it is with so many today.                                                                                                                    

The politically correct, the homosexuals, the womens libbers, the so called educators (from what  see I do not know what they are teaching but it is not anything useful in my opinion ), the doctors that insist on trying to force people to take poison they call immunization shots ( have you wondered why they say we must get the flu shot and then they come out and say it is a different strain or why the people I know that get the flu shots get sicker than us that do not (at least that has been my experience) , why there are so many diseases in our children now a days) know their lifestyle is wicked but they do not want to admit it.                                                                                                                                                         

When the righteous try to stand up to them to protect our rights and our families rights, the wicked become enraged because they are denied their “right” to do what they want and force us to adhere to their  version of what is right or wrong and try to destroy the righteous. Who are you to tell me what is right or wrong is their motto?  The Bible is just a book of fairy tales. You are intolerant and prejudiced they cry.  The satanic liberal media just gobble it up and make the righteous appear to be intolerant and stupid of our rights. They try to create fear mongering. They just write what they are told.                                                                                                                                                                        

We must not be intimidated by them and continue to speak the truth with wisdom, gracefulness and meekness.                                                                                                                                                            

It is not possible to be Christ correct and politically correct. .Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                  

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the wisdom, grace, meekness, humbleness and strength to always speak Your truth into the ever powerful wicked world that is becoming more and more like Sodom every day. Please use me witness to be a light from darkness into Your Heavenly light of truth and life. I ask this in the name of He who was never politically correct Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There is Nothing Concealed.

TRUST IN HIM

 

So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. Matthew 10:26 New International Version

Since becoming close with Christ I have noticed a familiar pattern pattern emerge in my social contacts in every aspect of my life.    There have been so many times wicked individuals have, unbeknownst to me, laid traps for me, sometimes by themselves, others in groups.

Being naive and gullible as I am I was  always an easy mark for the wicked schemers and con artists.

However, the result was always the same.

 

The trap they laid for me I escaped from and they always fell into their own wicked traps. They were stunned and enraged at me. Many times they pretentiously fake innocence. They slowly learned not to attempt such foolish endeavors again. As well, they avoid me like the plague because they cannot get away with their scams. They are so dishonest they cannot function in any other way in their lives but to lie, connive, deceive and or manipulate others.

When you hear of the wicked and powerful thinking up ways to ensnare you, do not be afraid of them but have faith in the wisest most powerful protector of them all , Jehovah God. He continually will arrange circumstances so that you walk away looking righteous while others laugh at the wicked fools as they end up covered with protectorthier own dung heaped upon their faces.

 

I have experienced this at school, work, with family and in relationships. It covers all aspects of our social life, school life and work life.

 

The wicked think they are so smart as they lay traps for the righteous but God in Heaven laughs at them as He guide the righteous around the traps and the wicked fall into their own traps. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

When you have a respectful, loving relationship with Christ He will protect you from such scam artists if you are obedient unto His heeding. This has been oh so true in my walk with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah (The Lord Saves) for rescuing me from the evil plots the wicked arrogantly lay before me to trap me. I joyfully thank you in the name of He who outwitted the Pharisee’s when they tried to outwit Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cure for Foot in Mouth Disease.

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Whoever guards his mouth and tongue. Keeps his soul from troubles.Proverbs 21:23 New King James Version                                            

We have all done it haven’t we?                                                                          

Put our foots in our mouths.                                                                            

That is where we speak thinking we have insight only to be shamed by another when we are proven wrong.                                                            

 The best way to cure foot in mouth disease is to watch your mouth. Personally many times someone has tried to argue with me and it looks like they have won. Later upon reflecting on what was said I believe the Holy Spirit guides me into knowledge on the subject and the next day I challenge the agitator and they are shamed. I do not intend to shame them but to correct erroneous thought.                                                   

The heart of the righteous studies how to answer, But the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil. Proverbs 15:28 New King James Version                                                     

At the same time there are many wolves out there that like nothing more than to be agitators and laugh at watching someone go off. They try to get under your skin to cause a fight. On the internet they are known as trolls. They troll like a fisherman.                                                               

Many times a fish will bite the lure just because the fisherman keeps on casting in their face.                                                                                            

 Trolls do the same thing. They troll for the weak to pick fights with.             

I just ask them if they have personal problems and if they would like me to offer information on how to deal with their issues. As well I let them know I am praying for them. They quickly leave me alone.                        

Before you speak ask yourself these questions: Is it necessary? If not then shut up.                                                                                                         

Is this the right place?                                                                                 

 I prefer to speak with someone one on one instead of in a crowd. If they are in a crowd their pride can be hurt which will back them into a wall and they become defensive.                                                                                 

Is it the right time?                                                                                                 

If it is at work and it is personal choose a quiet place like a café to talk with them instead of causing an incident at work. 

Is it being said in love?

Remember Christ is love, satan is war. If you are looking to pick a fight guess which one you are serving?    Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                         

 Am I qualified to talk about the subject?                                                            

I have met many who thought they were Mr. Know It Alls only to be made to look foolish because they did not know anything about the subject (myself included on occasion).                                                       

Prayer: Please KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the wisdom to know when to speak and how to speak to help others and there by bring glory to Your Holy name as I am a representative of You. I humbly request this in the name of the most eloquent speaker of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Two Different Ones.

I believe there are two different types of forgiveness.

One is for yourself, the other is in relationships.

The one is for yourself.

And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. Matthew 6:11 New King James Version

If someone does you wrong, you are to forgive them for yourself.

If you do not forgive them you will become angry, bitter and full of self pity. That causes all kinds of physical and spiritual sickness. And, worst of all, if you refuse to repent it will badly affect your relationship with Jehovah. You will end up all alone and bitter. Each day will seem like a living Hell. I have seen a lot of that in seniors homes and i n the lives of many I knew as a child that are now adults.

 

The other is relationship.

Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother.  But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector. Matthew 18:15-17 New King James Version                                  

Now in the time that Jesus said that Jews were forbidden from having anything to do with a heathen or tax collector.                                                            

If someone is abusive to you are refuses to repent (repent means to admit what you did, admit it was wrong, to say you are sorry, and to stop committing the abuse. Many times that will mean going in for Christian counselling) do not continue in the relationship. If a spouse gets drunk and beats up the other spouse (and yes, women do it to men almost as much as men do it to women) and refuses to stop do you really believe Jesus wants you at continue on in that relationship? Not the Jesus I know and love.

The reason you take two or more witnesses is so the offender cannot say you did not try to reconcile with them or that it never happened (I have personally experienced a lot of that one).

 

Now many of us do not attend churches but we can go to Christian councilors and if available in your area go to group sessions. If the offender refuses it is because they know they are wrong but the relationship is not important enough for them to reconcile. If it is not important enough for them then why should it be important to you?

 

May I suggest, if you live in North America, to look up Focus on the Family for help and online resources.   RBC.org (go to topics and you will find many exhalent booklets to help you) as is acts.org.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me with discernment to know when and how to forgive others as You do. I humbly request this in the name of our Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not Allow Me To

Do you have any of these?

Complaining is infectious

Complaining is infectious, contagious. Have you ever been around a negative Nellie? All she does is complain. Either it is too hot or too cold. We need rain or it is raining out. She can take the sails out of your cherry day in five minutes. Complaining changes your attitude. You become a very negative person. Usually it is manipulative theft. They complain about things in their life to get you to have pity on them. This gives them affection while they give you nothing in return.

I politely try to have a positive attitude with them. If they refuse to change their attitude I strongly but politely inform them their attitude is not welcome and if all they want to do is be negative go whine to someone else. Either their attitude changes or they avoid me.

Either way, problem solved.

Nagging is destructive

Nagging is destructive to relationships. If anything you do is never good enough you reach the point of not trying. Usually I just step back and ask them to show me a better way. Most times they shut up and leave me alone. They would rather nag than help reach a constructive solution. How many children have given up because of a nagging parent?

As a teacher I see it a lot. I always try to be positive and encouraging with far superior results

Doubting is destructive

Doubting is destructive not only to you but to everyone around you. How many times has a great plan everyone is hyped up to start crash and burn because one doubting Dave destroys it with his negativity.

How many times I have experienced people tell me if I tried something it would fail. People told me I would fail when I tried tree planting. After thirteen years I planted over a million trees all across Canada.

When I informed people I was going to bicycle from Canada to Mexico everybody laughed and told me I would fail. It took me three months to complete the trip. The list goes on and on

If you feel Jehovah is guiding you to do something do not listen to the doubting Daves. Go for it believing He will always provide you with the tools to succeed.

Wandering is humbling

Wandering is humbling because you usually take small baby steps away from the path Jesus has chosen for you to take in your service to Him. One day it will be like a exploding flash of lightening just how far you have wandered. The devil will laugh and tell you Jesus is angry with you and does not love you anymore. Do not believe that filthy liar. Jesus loves you and anxiously waits for you to return to Him. Such incredible love is very humbling.

Prayer: Oh wonderful Abba please do not allow me to spread infectious diseases, but rather I humbly give my life to you to guide to accomplish Your mission for my life. In Jesus’ wonderful name I ask Amen

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

Do Not Give It Back.

TRUTHFUL LIPS

To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. Luke 6:29 New King James Version                                                                                                                    

When Jesus commands us to turn the other cheek he is referring to an eastern custom.      

                                                                                                                                

In the east a slap on the face was considered an insult as it is today in that part of the world.         

                                                                                                                             

So what Jesus is referring to is that when someone insults you do not go into their level and insult them back.                                                                                                 

Never lower yourself to an idiots level. They are stupid and stubborn, no matter what you do or say, they always refuse to listen to you. It is like talking to a brick wall. They will beat you every time because of their mass experience and make you look like an idiot. Let it be like water off a ducks back.                                                                                                                                          

If you insult them back, from my experience it only leads to a yelling match and harsh words are said that you will regret later.                                                                              

As well there are the wolves that delight in using insults to bait you into a useless stupid argument to get under your skin and then stand there and laugh at you when you get upset. These people are very immature and insecure. They abuse you to make themselves feel important and feel good about themselves instead of facing much more serious problems in their lives than the ones they are being judgmental towards you about.                                                                                          

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God who is gracious) please bless me that my words will be filled with Your wonderful grace. When encountering jackasses please give me the wisdom to politely smile and walk always knowing it is the righteous thing to do. I humbly ask this in the name of He who was filled with grace when encountering the jackasses in scribes clothing Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                    

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

My Double Blessing.

I CAN LEAN ON HIM

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 New International Version

 

Every day I pray that Jesus molds me to be more like Him.

 

One day I wanted to go to the library to work on my writing. (it is very hot and the library has air-conditioning. As well they are doing construction where I live and it is very noisy).

 

There was a strong feeling to go grocery shopping instead.

 

When at the supermarket there was a one day sale where many of the items needed were half price.

 

While waiting in line an elderly Chinese female tried to queue jump in front of me.

 

I firmly but politely informed her to go to the back of the line as I stretched out my arm to prevent her from jumping in front of me.

 

Chinese are very stubborn and rude so the arm was put out because they just ignore you and do as they want anyway.

 

She tried to ignore me and push in front. I gently but firmly pushed her back and told her in a stronger voice to get to the back of the line.

 

She understood she was not going to get away with her rudeness and the cashier informed her she would not accept her groceries until she got to the back of the line so she angrily went to the back of the line.

 

The other Chinese females were happily impressed. Upon reflecting upon it later I realized that is exactly what Jesus would have done.

 

Please do not be politically correct and say the old female should have been allowed to get away with her arrogant rudeness. Jesus did not accept abhorrent behavior from anyone regardless of age or status and neither should a Christian.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me in the proper manner in how to deal with arrogant and rude men and women.

 

I give thanks for this gift in the name of he who did not tolerate rudeness Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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