In a Moment

FACE TO FACE

 They In a moment they die Job 34:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my early twenties I had my life all planned out. Needless to say none of it came to fruition. There were however a few times when but by the grace of Jehovah I would have died.

We know not when, we know not where, we know not how, but we all know we will die. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Realizing this, there was a foolish attempt to get all the gusto there was out of the here and now because tomorrow I could be dead. This was a frustrating occurrence because everything attempted left me with a feeling of incompleteness, like something was missing. Over time the truth came to me that what was missing to make my life complete and meaningful was a loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. There have been many close encounters with death since then.

Then came an experience of what life would be like after death when I lived my life without Christ. Needless to say, it was not pleasant.

Another experience showed me what life will be like after death when my life has been lived in an obedient loving relationship with Christ. Wow, there are no words to describe it but I can tell you this: I look forward to death because there is nothing here that can compare to being with Christ. That does not mean I am suicidal because I know that Christ has work for me here to do until HE chooses to take me home and I am dedicated to preforming my duties to the utmost for Him out my love for Him.

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed. Wayne Dyer

Prayer:Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the honour of being Your humble servant and with the guarantee of spending eternity with the one with whom I love the most: You my Beloved Heavenly Father and my Wise Teacher. It is a destiny I yearn for oh so deeply. I praise You in Your wonderful name. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

God is in Your Midst  

GOD IS WITH US

This past week mom (I am a unpaid live in care giver for my mom. If I am not here she will be put into a seniors home) has been constantly taunting me that this is HER house and she does not need me. She can throw me out at her slightest whim.   I know my Lord desires me to remain here but it really gets me down.         

 These verses and quotes stuck out to me this morning while reading morning devotionals.              

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11    The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                    

 “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”  Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                         

   I don’t know what  tomorrow brings;  But I know who knows, and I know He holds my hand who holds tomorrow in His other hand. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                                  

   Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? Genesis 18:14  The Holy Bible Amplified Version             

   “What seems too difficult for us is a sure sign that it belongs to God.” — Marie DePree                                                                  

 “The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                             

About an hour afterwards as laying in bed my heart started tingling like a mild electric current was stimulating it.  Then there was a tingling in my mouth (no not like the current was running from my heart to my mouth but each was separate). I could not stop singing Glllllory, gloorrry , glorrry in excelsis.        

Next my right finger after the thumb tingled and was outstretched towards Heaven. This continued for an hour.                                                                     

 Wow, what an experience.                                                                      

   Do you think my Heavenly Love was trying to tell me something?  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with your reassurance that no matter what comes my way whether good or bad You are always right here with me. You are indeed all I need in life and You are my life. I exalt You in the name of my best friend who continuously walks beside me Jesus Christ. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Considering the Magnitude of Its Importance

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 And just as it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment. Hebrews 9:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unaided human reason, we repeat, never did, never can, assure us that there is a future state at all.

There is life after death, we all know it.

What will our future look like when we have passed on to the other side ( when we depart our fleshly body in death and enter into the unknown eternity of the spiritual world)?

All human reason and imagination is is foolishness and imagination.

Considering that our presence in this world we be for an eternity we had better go to the most reliable source. That is not going to physics, or to new age teachers or psychologists, nor to scientists.

There is only One whose absolute truth will bless us or curse us with a fainting glimpse of our eternal destiny.

His revelation will either fill our spirit with joy, anticipation and assurance or it will envelope our spirits with terror, anguish and anger. His name of course is Jehovah. He will and does pull back the curtain of eternity to give us a glimpse of our eternal home, whether it be Heaven or whether it be Hell.

But now [that extraordinary purpose and grace] has been fully disclosed and realized by us through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus who [through His incarnation and earthly ministry] abolished death [making it null and void] and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 2 Timothy 1:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Considering the magnitude of its importance of eternity to us, we had better listen and take heed to what the Holy Spirit teaches us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with the incontestable truth that only comes from You. Thank you for teaching it to my limited mind in a way that the truth can be grasped and understood. Thank you for assisting me in incorporating this truth into my daily life. Yours is the only school that I am addicted to attending every day because of its amazing lessons learned at the feet of the wisest teach, the Holy Spirit. I exalt Thee in the name of the supreme Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

The Light Above My Head.

                                         

I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and fulfilled it,” says the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One night while sleeping in the back yard in a tent I was awoken by a blue flame above my head. Thinking the house was on fire I frantically attempted to open the zipper on the tent to get mom out of the house. I was so upset I, at first, did not realize I was vainly attempting to find the zipper on the wrong side of the tent. When I did manage to finally open the tent door and rush outside, there was no flames at all. Confused I crawled back into the tent and promptly fell asleep.

When I woke up the next morning all of my finger tips were tingling, my heart felt as if it was going to burst and my head felt electrified. No, it was not a physical ailment that caused this, I am as strong as a horse.

During morning Bible reading this verse burned into my eyes.

There is concern about what will happen to me when mom passes on to the other side (I am an unpaid caregiver with no savings). Every morning I thank the Lord that even though I do not know what is going to happen, one thing for certain is that He will always take care of me.

In the four years of being a caregiver I have worked tirelessly fixing this place up by myself. The only help the rest of the family is, is when they help themselves to moms money every month. They never come down to help and only call when they want money.

One day after crying out to the Lord about the unfairness of it all, He directed me to go sit out on a trail with my Bible. He spent three hours with verse after verse educating me that the wicked shall lose their inheritance and the righteous shall inherit theirs. I kept on replying that I know my inheritance is in Heaven and that is all I want but it would be nice to have some help from the rest of the family in caring for mom. Finally I have taken the attitude that I get what can be done done and not stress out or work myself into exhaustion attempting to do all the work myself.

This verse seems to be His word pounding into my thick skull that all the work I have done is not for someone else (the wicked family) to profit from (because of the beautification of the property the house has increased in value, which I do not care about but they do because it means they get more money from the inheritance). I shall dwell upon this land in peace, love, joy and security because Jehovah says so and He never lies.

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

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. Because I know, I KNOW, He holds the future, And life is worth the living just because He lives.” Bill & Gloria Gaither

For I have taken all this to heart, exploring and examining it all, how the righteous (those in right standing with God) and the wise and their deeds are in the hands of God. Ecclesiastes 9: 1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you are serving the Lord and are concerned about anything I pray this article has blessed you with strength, confidence, peace and joy.

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with Your Divine provision through out all of my life. Thank you for promising me a wonderful retirement plan which surpasses anything the world can offer. I exalt Thee in the name of He who will greet me in Your greatest retirement Home every conceived Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Never Existed Before.

God  loveS populations,

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version

Just think there is only one like you. You are an original. There was never anyone like you and never will be again.

So why do you try to fit in with the crowd?

I remember this really bad TV show that everyone was watching. When I asked my friends if they liked it, they confided in me that they thought the show was boring and crappy. When I asked them why they watched it their reply was always the same: because everybody else is.

Now God created you for a special purpose that only you can accomplish.

When you give your life over to Jesus that makes Him your king. As such the King has a special assignment just for you His servant.

To know what that is takes honest and sincere prayer.

He has always answered me in unusual ways. Sometimes it was with a small advertisement in a newspaper, sometimes it was a sermon, sometimes it was a talk with a friend.

When your calling is revealed it will sometimes be one that takes a leap of faith.

But know this, all calling are important or else Christ would not waste your time and His.

If your calling is to be a stay at home mother it is just as important as a missionary (stay at home mothers have a very important calling, molding the next generation of Jehovahs children).

If your calling is  to be a waitress or waiter the work you do is very important. Your attitude can change someones day and indeed their life.

“Every person born in this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique.”  Martin Buber

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for blessing me with a special assignment to bring glory and honour to Your cherished name and for the wonderful opportunity to bring someone into Your sanctified family. I praise you in the name of He whose precious blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

When the Devil Tries to Bring Me Down.

COMFORT IN HIS WORD

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1 New King James Version

 

News Flash: as we age our bodies break down until the final curtain is drawn in death.

 

One thing I have noticed amongst seniors in their waning years is a lot of bitterness because of their past.

 

 

There is no time like the present to confess our wrong doings and try to make things right.

 

Yet, I find that many stubbornly refuse.  Although I feel sorry for them, it is something they must confront and deal with. I can help them if they so desire but they must make the effort.

 

As many age the devil will try to taunt them with their past sins and convince them that they are filth in the eyes of Jehovah.

 

If you have repented and made things right do not believe his lies and merely inform him that you know Jesus has forgiven you and has prepared a Heavenly home for you. Then ask the devil to repent lest his eternal home be a very hot one.

 

When the devil tries to bring me down because of my past I just remind him of where I am going in the future. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful to Your promise to forgive us when we repent and welcome us to a Heavednly home You have faithfully prepared for us when we come to Your Divine Kingdom. I adore You in the name of the king whom I deeply love Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                           

 

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

Look Forward Not Back.

Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before Philippians 3:13 King James Version

DEVINE PLANS

How many time travelers have you met?

You know, the ones who say things were so much better back when I was younger (usually parents and grandparents).

Name me a time and I can name you both glory and gory it that time.

The opposite side of the coin are those who only remember the bad things.

They always tell you how hard it was back then and how easy it is for the younger
generation.
Each generation endures their own hardship and their own glory days. Joseph: Anthony- Green
Remembering events, both good and bad make up a part of our live. Just do not live there. Reaching involves an action.

Reach out to now, today and tomorrow.

Pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the present opportunities before you and you will be amazed what you can do working as a tag team with the Holy Spirit. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I did not learn to tree plant (which is one of the hardest jobs in the world) until in my thirties and planted over a million trees all across Canada.

I did not become a teacher until in my forties but have taught from the north end of China to the south in seven years, teaching children, teenagers, adults and university students (most teachers can only teach one age group).

I did not become a writer until in my fifties.

I did not become a pastor until my mid fifties and now mentor internationally.

So please do not give me any lame excuses about you being over the hill.

Ask for Gods will to be done in your life, follow it and be amazed at what he WILL DO in your life. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Nissi (God who goes out before us and leads us) bless me with the wisdom, strength, trust and courage to always follow Your leading even when I do not see where the road ahead is leading. I sincerely ask this in the name of He obeyed Your directions all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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