A Lowly Worm

 Though you are a lowly worm, O Jacob, don’t be afraid, people of Israel, for I will help you. I am the Lord, your Redeemer. Isaiah 41:14 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

The worm is a lowly creature that is easily destroyed. It is weak and helpless.

That is exactly the Christian that Jehovah accomplishes the most with.

Those are the ones that do not depend upon their own strength nor wit to accomplish the task our Heavenly King sets before them.

Those are the ones that will stun the world because of Jehovahs power beating within their souls.

Those are the ones that confuse those who are wise in their own feeble minds with the Holy Spirits wisdom coursing through the brain.

Those are the ones whose song of joy, praise, adulation and respect sings like a Heavenly chorus echoing through the Heavens when the guaranteed victory is gained to the Heavenly King. It was He who used His loyal submissive servant to gain triumph which the lowly servant gleefully admits.

The ones who depend upon their own wit or strength satan laughs at as they are as easily beaten as a two year old in a wrestling match against a twenty year old. Oh what a deep cloud of shame and humiliation encompasses them.

When Jehovah calls us to accomplish great tasks it is normal for us finite creatures to experience anything but terror at such a great task. We know our weaknesses and cry out “not I my love for I am weak, send someone else”. This is the one with whom the Holy Spirit accomplishes the greatest with as He fills the Christian with confidence and power and not of ones own disposition.

DIVINE STRENGTH

Then fear flees like a frightened bird replaced with the power and confidence of the Holy Spirit.

Satan and his minions tremble at the sight of one such as these.

Those strong and wise in the world turn and run like scared dogs at the sight of such ones as filled with the Holy Spirit. That and that alone is how a Christian lives a victorious life.

By my strength and wit only failure will be my reward. By submitting to The Holy Spirit victory is guaranteed. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Izuz Wegibbor (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Strong and Mighty) for blessing me with Your undefeatable strength when the foes are too numerous and too strong for me to defend myself against.                                             

Thank you for blessing me with the strength to continue on when exhausted to a great victory for You.

I praise You for Your mighty, yest gentle protective arm around this feeble child of Your in the name of He whose strength kept Him nailed to the agonizing cross to accomplish the most awesome feat of all, salvation to all, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Must Clothe Yourselves With

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

  Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is too little of tender hearted mercy today. Tender hearted mercy means that our hearts ache when we see someone in need. We make a commitment to help them where they cannot help themselves (do not mistake that for refuse to help themselves. If drug addicts refuse to take the steps necessary to destroy the habit all you help is nothing more than a crutch to them which does not help them). This is not a one day event or token kindness like giving to the food bank (although there is nothing wrong with that) but rather a long term commitment.

So if there is a youngster that is having problems in life us older generation should come along side of them and offer them our experiences, both good and bad (yes it is good for the younger generation to hear of our failures to help them see that we were just like them).

We must exhibit kindness, especially to the elder generation. If a senior needs someone to cut their grass or shovel the snow from their driveway we are to offer to help them (be careful not to be abused though. Just because they are seniors does not mean they cannot be manipulative, indeed most seniors I know are very manipulative.

That is why it is so important to pray to Jehovah to guide you to where your help is appreciated).

We must be there to strengthen the weak when temptation comes a knocking at their door. We have all opened that door when we should not have from time to time so we know what they are going through.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. Sometime in life you will have been all of these. Lloyd Shearer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless this child of Yours to emulate Your love with all those I encounter today so as to be a light to guide them to the most incredible love affair there ever can be or will. I humbly request this in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Tell It and Then Walk Away

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Matthew 7:24-27 New International Version.

The interesting thing about this story is that Jesus told a simple and easy to understand parable so everybody could understand what He was saying. At the end of it He just got up and walked away. I believe He did this to give the people time to digest what He was saying.

Now that was not the end of it though.

After His resurrection when His disciples came sharing His story the people were more receptive to accepting it.

SHARE THE WORD

So too it is with us

When we share the story with people of Jesus why not make it as simple as possible for them to understand the message and then just leave them alone to think about it?

Do not try to get them to accept Jesus right then and there. That is a huge mistake too many Christians make. Do not use pressure tactics. Jesus never did, why should you?

If they are receptive, the Holy Spirit will guide them to where they can learn more. Maybe it will be you, maybe someone else.

If they are not receptive to Jesus’ story they will not listen anyway and it is a waste of both your time and usually ends up with nothing but frustration on both parties’ behalf.

I have met too many people that just at the mention of Jesus’ name it is an instant turn off because of the pressure tactics that was tried on them previously.

Not only that but maybe they are not ready to accept Jesus just then.

Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) guide me on how to share you with others and the best time to just walk away. I sincerely ask this in Your loving name. Amen

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

He Put Them on the Shoulders.

A CUTE LITTLE SNOWBALL

He made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and of fine woven linen.  And they beat the gold into thin sheets and cut it into threads, to work it in with the blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and the fine linen, intoartistic designs. They made shoulder straps for it to couple it together; it was coupled together at its two edges. And the intricately woven band of his ephod that was on it was of the same workmanship, woven of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and of fine woven linen, as the Lord had commanded Moses.   And they set onyx stones, enclosed in settings of gold; they were engraved, as signets are engraved, with the names of the sons of Israel. He put them on the shoulders of the ephod as memorial stones for the sons of Israel, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Exodus 39:2-7 New King James Version                                                                       

The shoulder pads for the high priest was a symbol of our high priest Jesus Christ.

 

The jewels in the shoulder pads were precious jewels.

We are precious jewels to Jesus.

The names of the twelve tribes of Israel were engraved upon the stones. Our names are precious and are engraved upon Jesus’ heart. Just as the priest was to carry these upon his shoulders so too does our precious Priest carry us upon His shoulders like a good Sheppard. When the sheep go astray the good Sheppard carries them back to the flock.

When the load of life is too heavy to carry and you believe it is impossible to continue on one more step, give it all to Jesus. If He was strong enough to carry the cross for you, He is more than strong enough to carry your cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Many times in my life it was only when I surrendered it all to Jesus that the troubles slowly were resolved. I believe it was slowly because that allowed me time to digest just what an awesome, loving, caring, strong and wise Savior we have in Jesus. Jesus is not just our Saviour in Gods grace but also in our daily lives.

It is in our weakness that Jesus is strong.   Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ  Rohi (Jesus is my Shepherd) for blessing me with having my name engraved upon Your strong shoulders to carry me back to Your Holy flock when I go astray. I exalt You in You strong and gentle name. 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.

Give It To Them Bluntly

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.

He replied, “When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away.

Matthew 16:1-4 New International Version

The Pharisee’s and Sadducee’s when they confronted Jesus were just looking to pick a fight. Jesus gave it to them bluntly and then walked away.

That is what we are to do when confronted with those who get a perverted pleasure out of picking fights.

I do not try to reason with unreasonable people. I just tell it like it is and then walk away.

If you try to reason with them they will manipulate you into a stupid fight and laugh as they sickly watch you get all upset.

I speak from a lot of experience.

Many times I would try to use reason to no avail and get very frustrated and angry. Then the perpetrators act innocent and try to blame you saying it is all your fault.

They are truly the spawn of the devil and yes there is a special place in Hell just for them. (look up where Jesus says woe to trouble makers).

Now I politely but firmly tell them like it is and walk away.

They are the ones that look stupid and get angry while the bystanders laugh at them.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (the voice of God) bless me to be Your voice and convict the filthy wolves of their dirty little game and then provide me with the grace to leave in a dignified manner befitting of You.

I earnestly ask this in the name of he who gave it to His condemner’s right between the eyes when they attacked Him Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Why the Bible Thumpers Are Wrong.

USE DISCRECION

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 New International Version

I have seen and experienced many good intentioned but wrong minded Christians who try to shove their version of the Bible down people’s throats. As a result they do more to drive unbelievers away from Christ than guide them to Christ. Consequently you are serving Satan rather than serving Christ.

 

I know because that is exactly what happened to me with that Satanic cult Jehovah’s Witnesses and with some people who were recovered alcoholics and drug addicts that became born again Christians. Because of their in your face method they drove me away from reading the Bible, praying or having anything to do with Christianity for many years.

The way that I find to be most productive is to begin with living the Christian life. Then pray that Jehovah arranges for you to encounter someone who is open to receiving Christ’s message.

When they see how you live they will be curious and inquire about why you live a different lifestyle. That is the best opportunity to share the message.

Now of course this includes studying your Bible and carrying it with you every day so that you are prepared.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God ) teach me when and how to use the correct opportunities to share You with those who are ready to hear Your Word.

I sincerely ask this in the name of He who waited thirty years before beginning His ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

 

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

You Know They Produce Quarrels.

WRONG WALK

Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 2 Timothy 2:23 New King James Version

I have met many whose pure joy it is to start arguments for the sole purpose of watching others get upset. They are called narcissists.

The sad thing is that when you look into their lives they are very sad and lonely. That is because they have low self esteem and care about no one but themselves.

When you surround your self with yourself you have no on but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

I do not play their games. I only gracefully and wisely speak the truth with them. Then it is asked why they insist on being trouble makers? Is it because your own life is so miserable that you are not happy unless you make those around you miserable as well? I ask them if they would like to get help with counseling and most turn and run. I do not say this in a sarcastic nor accusing manner but with grace and humbleness. If they truly desire help I have the resources to help them and will work with them to get that help.

They know they have these problems but do not want to face them nor resolve them.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God is our peace) instill in me a heart filled with Your divine peace whenever I encounter the pitiful lost souls that hearts are filled with the vile of hatred and anger. Please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekfulness to guide them to the help they so desperately need. I humbly request this in the name of the prince of peace who always kept His cool when under attack and replied with wisdom, gracefulness and meekness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They are not Christlike.

AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1Peter 3:15 New King James Version

These Christians that go to funerals at homosexuals at military burials and scream that they are going to burn in hell, they are not Christlike.

They are not behaving in a gentle nor respectful manner.

 

They are dishonouring Christ and the Christian family.  Indeed, I believe they will be judged more harshly than the sinners they are condemning.

I have met many who are quick to condemn others while hiding worse filth in their own closets, even experiencing a taste of their venom directed my way. Perhaps they need to remember that as you have judges others so too will you be judged.

It is the same thing with abortion.

As Christians we are to be graceful which means being polite and kind.

When you are a loud mouth and condemning of others you set a bad representation of Christ and drive others away from Him not to Him.

If when you share your witness of Christ others are loud mouthed and condemning do not go down to their level.

 

Your duty is to give the message. If others reject it, politely end the conversation and walk away. Your job is not to judge, that is Christs. Your job is to share the message.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) instill in me a gracious attitude and language that is full of grace so as to bring You honour and to bring the lost ones into Your holy family. I humbly request this blessing in the name of the most graceful one to walk amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

How Much Do You Bear Each Other?

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,endevouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3

FROM THE HEART

How much lowliness do you exhibit in your life?

Or, do you tend to look down on others because of their physical looks, how much they make or if they have a different accent than you(they need not be from a different country but from a different part of your own country)?

Is your speech gentle and graceful or are you as course as sandpaper? Do you make rude comments or gossip about others?
If someone has an annoying habit do you bark at them or pray for meekness and tolerance? Do you work to keep harmony or do you delight in starting fights and finding fault?

This need not be just in your Christian community.

As Christians we are what the world sees as Christ. How are you doing in your family, at school and at work?

It is difficult if not impossible for us to accomplish these things.

Then how are we to succeed?

We are to humbly ask the Holy Spirit to bless us with the demeanor of Christ so as to glorify Him and draw others to Him.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with the attributes of Your most holy son so as to exhibit to others Your love and grace in all my words and in all my actions. I humbly request this in the name of the most gracious of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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