With the Strength Of.

So he got up and ate and drank, and with the strength of that food he travelled forty days and nights to Horeb (Sinai), the mountain of God. 1 Kings 19:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Before Jehovah sends us to where He has something important to share with us He knows we need to be nourished. Most times it will not be physical nourishment but spiritual and mental.

From personal experience it can be a couple of hours or days or months and in some instances it took years. Jehovah is in no hurry and knows what you need to be ready to hear what He desires to share with you. The amount of time it takes depends upon you. It is important so He is in no hurry.

Notice that it was Mount Sinai which is the same place Moses received the Ten Commandments.

So yes where Jehovah is sending you is someplace quiet and isolated where there will be no interruption. He needs you to be in communion with Him because He has something important to discuss with you.

For me it was deep in the forest in a very isolated place. And yes, it was very important what we discussed. It could not have happened any other place that that isolated area. The amount of time spent in that place was three months.

That may not happen to you but you can be assured it will be in an isolated place and it is important what He has to say to you.

We need to go on Gods time not our own. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with Your Divine help to be prepared for the time in which You chose to speak important matters to me in Your Holy place. I exalt Thee in the name of He who had the strength to go to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Be Sincere.

  

Love is to be sincere and active [the real thing—without guile and hypocrisy].Romans 12:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you not hate those phonies.

For example you meet someone or call them and they say they were just thinking of you. Riiiight.

Or how about the ones that say they are your friend but can’t wait until you are gone to put a knife in your back or gossip about you.

Or, how about the ones that are friendly with you only because they want something from you and try to scam it out of you. When they do not want to scam anything out of you, you do not exist and Heaven forbid if you need any help and as them ( for some reason they are always busy whenever you want them to help you but they expect you to drop everything on their every whim.)

To be full of guile is to be deceitful.

Hypocrisy means to pretend to be what one is not.

On the other hand those with love always are willing to help and encourage others. They are a treasure in our lives and a wonderful blessing.

Love is an action, not an emotion. Do not tell me you love me, show me you love me. Joseph son of Jehovah

Whenever I experience those vile creatures I have nothing to do with them because they are nothing but trouble.

“Airports see more sincere kisses than wedding halls. The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches.” Unknown

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me with a loving heart towards others as Your heart is loving towards me. I humbly request this in the name of He who loved me so much He suffered the horrors of the cross form me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He has predicted

 

But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth [full and complete truth]. For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears [from the Father—the message regarding the Son], and He will disclose to you what is to come [in the future]. John 16:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Holy Spirit is better than a crystal ball. He will accurately predict your future.

He has mine.

He predicted that when I become an obedient servant of Christs I shall never be homeless, hungry or wearing rags. In the twenty years in serving Christ this prediction has always rung true.

He predicted that when my weakness were surrendered unto His purification He would mould me into a new beautiful creation and He has accomplished a more incredible make over of me spiritually than any body chop shop could begin to accomplish. The chop shops ( those that do physical surgery to try to make you look younger).

He has predicted He will walk with me through the trials and tribulations that come my way and I never would have made it without Him there.

He has predicted He will steer me away from the traps laid by wicked ones and they shall fall into their own traps. This has come true 100 % of the time.

He has predicted there is a special Heavenly home awaiting me with my best friend ( Jesus Christ) there to greet me with open arms. All of His previous predictions have come true, I believe I can trust Him with that one too.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with Your wonderful help through all of my trials and tribulations, victories and successes, sorrows and joy, snares and the provisional of escape from them. Thank you for blessing me with Your amazing wisdom and knowledge. Thank you that through all of this You are ultimately guiding me to a Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of the greatest mentor of all 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.

Wisdom is Having.

listen-to-our-wise-elders

Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I love to learn and am always willing to watch, listen, learn and be thankful towards my mentors. As a result there have been many disasters averted in my life.

A wise man listens, learns and obeys . Joseph- Anthony: Green

As for being self disciplined that requires the blessing of the Holy Spirit. We are all weak from time to time and need His infinite strength to get us through some trial and temptations. This as well has helped me avert many disasters in my life.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Knowledge comes from experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have seen far too many idiots continue upon the same road to disaster. No it is not repeating the same mistake.

The first time it is a mistake, after that it is just pain stupid and stubborn. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have seen way too many needlessly suffer because of this.

When I was treeplanting I would take the rookies and teach them the proper way to plant ( there was a lot more to it than just slamming a tree into the ground ) at the geginnig of the season.. I was not paid to do this but did it because of the graciousness in my heart. As they honed their skills they began to plant more trees. We were paid by how many trees we planted so they began to make a lot more money. Then there were always the: “ I know, I knows.’ ). These are the ones that when I offered to teach them to plant they would always say I know what I am doing, I know. As a result they would work twice as hard as the ones that listened to me and make one third the amount of money.

Stupidness and stubbornness go hand in hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

There is a price to pay for stupidity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for all of Your patience and wisdom you have blessed me with through my walk with You. It has been a true God send in my life. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There is No Fear

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love]. 1 John 4:18 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I believe that John was referring to repentant Christians in this passage.

Those who do not belong to Christ and unrepentant Christians have every right to fear Jehovahs punishment.

Hell is real, it is not pleasant and is for an eternity. There is no plea bargaining before Jehovah nor parole. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand, there is no need for a repentant Christian to worry about Jehovahs wrath. Christ has paid for our ransom and repentance is the second key.

Yes, Jesus’ blood has paid the price for our sins but if we continue in them that sacrifice is made null and void.

When we love Jehovah we desire to please Him and that means living a righteous life.

No one lives without sin. If that was possible Christ would not have made His horrifying sacrifice.

However when we sin and come before Jehovah with a sincere heart that is remorseful for what we have done and pray for the Holy Spirits power to be in us to overcome this weakness not only will our sins be forgiven but the Holy Spirit will bless us to conquer our habitual sins which are too strong for us to defeat on our own.

I know, there were many strong habitual sinful habits that I tried to conquer on my own only to crash and burn. When they were surrendered to the Holy Spirit He INSTANTLY forever destroyed them.

Now sometimes we must work in conjunction with the Holy Spirit by say getting into good Christian counseling to deal with the underlying reasons for the weakness (so sometimes someone abuses alcohol and or drugs to kill the pain of something tragic and painful earlier in our lives that they have not dealt with).

Again, I know of that of which I speak because I was blessed with Godly Christian councilors that took a year of counseling to deal with those issues. Many others it takes two or three years.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for Your cherished gift of sanctification (sanctify: to purify or free from sin) through Your holy blood when we repent of our weakness (sin) and thank you through the gift of the Holy Spirits ultimate power of forever smashing the destructive addictions in my life. I am eternally grateful in Your wonderful name. Amen.

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

Do Not Stop Because It Begins

And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees,  and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.” So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.” Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’” Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain.1 Kings 18:42-45 New King James Version

There was a drought in the land and Elijah prayed.

Soon there was a tiny cloud. He continued to pray even though he saw the cloud. That is what we are to do.

When we pray and we see the beginning of our prayers take fruitation we are not to stop praying but to pray all the more fervently.

THE THREE PARTS OF PRAYER

For me it was praying for the blessing to hone my skills as a dutiful Christian writer when beginning to write

After two years I started getting numerous accolades from other writers and even received awards on the web site I was writing on.

I still have not ceased to pray for Jehovah to bless me to improve even more. I am still learning by Gods grace.

So be patient. Do not forget that Jehovah works in His time and not ours. It may take weeks months or years but if it is in Jeovahs will it will come to pass.

This does not happen all the time.

We are all given free choice so if there is someone you desire to have reconciliation with and they have no desire for it is will sadly never happen.

As well Jehovah may not give you your desires because He sees far into the future and know it may not be in your best interest. I know I prayed for a woman to marry me and she refused. Many years later I saw what type of wife she was and very generously thanked Jehovah He did not grant my desire.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God of grace) for all the amazing blessing You have so abundantly blessed me with. Please my beloved never allow me to be complacent and lazy in either my prayers or Your following to improve myself in my walk with You. I humbly ask this in the name of He who spent the beginning of every day praying for Your will to be done in and through His life Jesus Christ. Amen.

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