Because He Is

And whoever gives to one of these little ones [these who are humble in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water to drink because he is my disciple, truly I say to you, he will not lose his reward.” Matthew 10:42 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice that Christ says “because He is my disciple.”

He is not saying to give it to anyone nor everyone.

So many use this verse as a stepping stone for evangelizing to the unsaved which is wrong.

We see these scam artists using this to con folks into giving them money so they can help the poor children in say Africa. They give pennies on the dollar while pigging out on luxurious salaries for themselves.

Indeed when you give to help those people you are doing more harm than good. Because they are getting free food they have no incentive to work or practice birth control. The local farmers suffer because no one will purchase their produce which drives them into bankruptcy.

Now we are to help wisely by helping them start their own business and supporting it. By working to convince them to use birth control and supplying it to them.

As well, those that give of their time and or money, believing they are serving Christ are wrong. As Christians it is our duty to share the Gospel first.

If the people are receptive then we help, if not then move on.

It may seem cruel but why waste your time and resources on those who are not interested in their spiritual life when those who are will not have their needs met.

I have seen this numerous times in many years of missionary work. The only reason the folks come to the Bible meetings is to receive free food with no intention of coming to Christ. They walk away laughing at the naive Christians.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) bless this little sheep of Your that You guide me where my resources will be used providentially to expand Your kingdom and to help those whom You deem worthy of assistance.

I humbly request this in the name of He who helped the truly needy Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Things Which Have Been Confined.

 

‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish. Jeremiah 33:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we ask of Jehovah to open our eyes to revelations and His awesome magnificence of boy does He deliver.

He has pulled back the curtain to reveal amazing things in His creation which reveal His awesome beauty and attributes. The world does not see these things because they are in the material world. It constantly amazes me both what He shows me and that those around me do not see them.

The Lord blesses me with insight to the events that are unraveling around us and their significance. When I try to explain it to those walking in the world they believe me to be absurd. It astounds me that they cannot see what is so obvious. Many times it is if they are in a different dimension that me.

It is so wonderful to meet one who walks with Christ and that we see these same things. It is some of the greatest conversations I have ever enjoyed. It is as if we cannot stop talking about them and sharing them with each other.

Do not be shocked when you try to speak of Jehovahs incredible revelations He has blessed you with and those around you cannot see them nor understand them.

A great way to illustrate this is when I came home from serving the Lord in Asia and tried to explain what it was like living in a different culture that thinks differently than us. At first they all laughed at me and said that was nonsense. Then a few months later it became headline news ( of course one of the things I am referring to is the ghost cities that dotted the land around where I lived).

So too it is with those who are not of Christs. It is foolishness to them and absurd.

Those of us that are Christ centered in our thinking have revelations that are absurd to the world Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory) for revealing Your magnificent glory to me and for communicating Your awesome wisdom to me. I extol Thee in the name of my glorious King Christ Jesus. Amen

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

One Goes With the Other.

chief-duty

 And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. 2 Corinthians 9:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah gives us so that we are to give to others. If you do not share then why should He share with you?

Jehovah will not provide you with abundance of earthly delights like a home you cannot afford or a new car with all the toys you do not need or expensive clothing you do not need but and abundance of spiritual blessings to complete the task He has intended for you in His divine plan.

“I exhort you, press on in your course, and exhort all men that they may be saved.” — Polycarp

The earthly blessings will be a time and place to accomplish His plan through you. It will also include the materials you need , like maybe a computer.

The only way to accomplish this task is with Divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness which can only be received through you dependence upon Him. He will abundantly supply these things.

I have done more for the Lord through the simple things that Jehovah lavishly provides for me than through the gadgets the world offers. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with Your daily providence to accomplish the tasks You have predestined for me to do for Your glory , Your kingdom and those who need assistance. I extol You in the name of He who provided for the four thousand Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Set Aside Self-Righteous Pride.

fruit-of-the-spirit

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever been in the company of the : I did” s You know the type, they cannot say a complete sentence without saying: “ I did this.” or : : I did that. “. To me I find it an extremely annoying experience and want to tell them : “ You are not the only person in the world you know.” Some times I do. You should see the look of indignation on their faces.

On the other hand I just go about serving the Lord quietly. Yes, He has taken me many incredible places and accomplished amazing things through me. Some times during a conversation these experiences will be shared with others. They look at me in amazement and comment that I have lived an incredible life. To me there is nothing incredible about it but I give Jehovah the glory because with out Him nothing would have been accomplished. Folks are always asking me to share these experiences with them because they find them so fascinating and interesting.

The good part though is that through sharing these experiences with them it encourages them and strengthens them through their hard times to go to Jehovah.

As well, it helps some of them to see just what Jehovah can do in their lives when they surrender to Him and place their faith in Him.

Give credit for your accomplishments where it belongs, to Jehovah, not you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your overflowing  benevolence of opportunities to exhibit the awesome possibilities Your provide to those with an obedient heart unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who accomplished amazing feats because He walked in honour and obedience unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

In Old Age.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

 [Growing in grace] they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age . Psalm 92:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Bible

Just because you are old does not diminish your usefulness in service unto Jehovah.

There are many organizations like Habitat for Humanity that would gladly appreciate your skills. Even if you have no experience they still need helping hands. I worked with them for the first time recently and the old fellas taught me a great deal and the fellowship was great.

Perhaps you have been a housewife, well I am sure there are community programs where they need you to teach cooking (the old home made meals are still the best).

If you have a vehicle there are many elderly folks that need a ride for doctors appointments and to take the shopping. There are hiking trails that need volunteers for maintenance of the trails.

There are literacy programs that need volunteers to teach others to read.

You can go and help out at seniors homes, being a volunteer there believe me I see a lot of lonely folks that would love to have someone come in for a visit.

The whole time you can share with others your walk with Christ. Personal testimony is still the best evangelical tool available.

Carpe diem (Seize the day)

Plant your seed of kindness and love today so that you will be blessed with an abundant harvest tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Not only will you be helping your community but ,by Gods grace, you will be guiding others into Jehovahs beautiful family.

There are so many lost, confused and lonely out there that need your help. Another blessing is that what goes around, comes around. When the time comes when you need help ( and we all do occasionally) you will have a support network there to help you as you have helped others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for walking with me through out my life and teaching me so many amazing things. Thank you for walking with me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Please bless me with opportunities to pass this Divine wisdom on to others who need guidance and support. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of He who is my constant support and guide through life, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Apple and the Tree.

SHINING GENTLE CREEK IN THE FOREST

 

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

Think of an apple sitting it on a table. You leave it there and eventually it goes rotten. Or, you eat it and then there is nothing left.

Now think of an apple tree. It starts out as a tiny seed. Eventually it will grow to produce fruit.

Now think of the apple as material wealth in your life. If you just store your wealth away without using it, it will go rotten and useless. To me that is the stock market. Or, you use it and then there is nothing left. Think of your expensive toys that wear out and are thrown out.

Now think of the apple seed as your beginning life as a Christian, your faith is very small. As the apple seed grows strong enough it will produce fruit. So too will it be with your faith. Your faith will grow stronger until it begins to produce fruit. The fruit is not just in your own personal life but in the lives of others as you serve Christ by serving them.

You serve Christ by serving others.Joseph- Anthony: Green

Which one is in your life?

My apple tree has been  producing plentiful fruit forty years . It has been very difficult at time but always rewarding both here and the riches they store up for me in Heaven.

How is your apple tree doing?

As a Christian you are not to accept Christ and then do nothing. You are to walk in faith and produce fruit. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddai (God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) for the awesome fertilizing (reading and understanding of the Bible, listening to sermons and Christian fellowship), pruning (removing destructive habits from my life) and leading me to be a productive tree for Your divine orchard. Please continue to fertilize and prune me every day. I sincerely request this in the name of the Heavenly vine Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Made Them Male and Female.

DO NOT BE AFRAID

<!--
    @page { margin: 2cm }
    P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm }

But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ Mark 10:6 Holy Bible, New International Version

In God we know.

In the homosexual community there is confusion.

We as Christians know we are a male or female because we know the truth of which sex God made us and are humble enough to accept it.

The homosexual community is filled with pride and sows confusion. They spread lies to confuse children like they do not know what sex they are. They spread lies like the homosexual lifestyle is normal (if this is true then why are most of the ones with syphilis, gonorrhea and aids homosexuals? Why are so many pedophiles homosexuals? Do you call this normal?) These lies are spread by Satan and those who follow him into Hell. Perhaps this is why the homosexual community so venomously, constantly, viciously attacks Christians.

With Christians not only are we not deceived by their wicked lies but we expose them as is our duty. We are to do so humbly, respectfully, wisely and meekly.

The first and major step in our battle with the satanic forces is to go to Jehovah in prayer.

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Do not expect those who worship this filthy wickedness to embrace the truth but rather expect a vicious battle. Does this battle not need to be fought the hardest in our schools to protect our children?

May I suggest you read United Nations Covenant on Social, Economic and Cultural Rights as well as United Nations Universal Rights of the Individual Citizen and see if they have the right to shove it down our throats? Fight legally using these two important documents.

“Persecution for righteousness’ sake is what every child of God must expect.” Charles Simeon

Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) bless me with Your brilliant light to slice through the thick cloud of wicked darkness that plagues our families, communities and nations in these perilous times. Please bless me with gracefulness and meekfulness when encountering the ignorant while shining Your Divine light of truth in this dark world. I humbly ask this in the name of He who is the light of the Jesus Christ. Amen.

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