His Name is Jehovah.

 “When my soul was fainting within me, I remembered the Lord, And my prayer came to You, Into Your holy temple. Jonah 2:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The older we get the more our soul faints with in, except, for those of us who belong to Christ.

You know why our soul does not grow weak?

Because we have the greatest strengthener there can ever be. His name is Jehovah.

I cannot count the number of times my finances were exhausted and I had no job because of a recession. Yes money was put away for this inevitability but it was put into investments that a naive one like me did not realize that the investment firm would charge exorbitant charges for cashing in the investment and the blood sucker government would take a huge chunk as well leaving me with a pittance to hold me over. That is what happens when you trust in corporations in my opinion, they are out to make money off of you and do not want to pay out. It took many years to walk away from these scoundrels and depend upon the best investment councilor there is. His name is Jehovah. Since listening to His wise advice and obeying His guidance there has never been a shortage of fiances ( mind you part of that is learning to live frugally and not to be a part of the foolish materialistic world).

In my younger days I used to read a lot of self help books to improve myself. Some were good and are still referenced to today ( especially because they confirm what the Bible says) but most were complete rubbish (especially the ones written by the “ new agers” ).

Self help is no where near as effective as Jehovahs help. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Today I depend upon the wisest Guidance Councilor there is.

His name is Jehovah.

Through His guidance book ( the Holy Bible), good Christian councilors and preachers He has remolded me in so many incredible ways so that there is no semblance of the old creature but only a new and much improved child of His.

The same is said in dealing with interpersonal relationships. Yes there are still times when my soul becomes weak within me but when those times come ( and they always do ) the proper course of action is taken and the soul is strengthened. The proper course of course is taking it to my loving, wise Councilor.

His name is Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your ultimate strength in my times of weaknesses. I would have never made it without You my love. I extol Thee in the name of my strong Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is We Not Me.

christs-family

 Then I said to them, “You see the bad situation that we are in—how Jerusalem is desolate and lies in ruins and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, and let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we will no longer be a disgrace.” Nehemiah 2:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is we not me.

Those that stand alone fall, those that stand together will with stand the strongest storms. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is an important ingredient on your road to recovery. We all have destructive addictions. We cannot resolve them on our own, we need help. Therefore, it is we as in Jehovah and you not me that will provide the resolution.

How many of us make silly New Years Resolutions to quit these habits only to crash and burn when they try to accomplish it on their own?

How many succeed when they have councilors and trainers helping them?

The way to determine who is the best trainer and or councilor for you is to take it to Jehovah in prayer and be obedient unto His wise guidance. After all, who know you better the creator or the creation?

We will always fail in our attempts to live a Holy life because we are all imperfect.

Satan will use this opportunity to tear you down in an attempt to make you feel unworthy of being a member of Jehovah’s Holy family.

All is not lost.

Christ will never desert you. He will provide a way of restitution unto Him.

That , again , is why we need to surround ourselves with Godly councilors when we fall. They will not only help us deal with the reason for the fall but also help us to stand upon the Holy rock of Christ.

The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill [to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth]. Proverbs 1:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with wise councilors and trainers for my daily walk with You. They lead me away from catastrophes and towards Heavenly success towards my loving relationship with You and the Divine service unto You that You have chosen for me to take in my life dedicated unto You. I exalt You for this treasure in the name of the greatest provider Jesus Christ. Amen

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

In Every Circumstance

weary

 Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.] John 14 27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It amazes me when I reflect back on my times of trouble and see the Holy Spirits awesome hand silently at work through it even though it did not feel as if He even cared much less was there . We have been through financial drought , fire of sickness, anguish of losing a loved one so very close to my heart , the strength for battle when the forces against me out numbered me and out powered me .

In every circumstance Jesus is there even though many times it does not feel like it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Oh cherished beloved child of Jehovah take hold of this promise and clasp it close to your precious heart , especially when it feels as if He is not there , during the raging storms and tempestuous fire storms that rage in your difficulties.

Do you truly believe that Christ would suffer that beating and the agony of hanging on the cross for six long tortuous hours while His precious blood ran down His Divine body because His love for you yet desert you in you time of need ?

Nay, say I , how foolish would that be ?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam ( The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength and provision in my numerous time of trials and tribulations , sorrow and snares. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the storms for His disciples 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.

Cast All Your Anxiety on Him.

calms-the-storms

 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 Holy Bible, New International Version

When ever a crisis occurs or a stressful moment occurs I pray for Jehovah to bless me with peace, patience and faith. Every morning during prayers I always ask for wisdom in how to properly handle any and all stressful situations.

Usually He answers me without my knowing during the situation but upon reflection I always thank Him for the blessing.

Sometimes I can be short tempered (yes it happens to us all) and apologize for it to those offended and to Jehovah with deep regret and ask Him to help me the next time (which He has in how to remove myself from stressful situations and people- yes there are toxic people that love to push our buttons and we are to avoid them whenever possible).

Many times I go to a quiet place in nature with my Bible. Nature calms me down and after pouring my heart out to Him a feeling of peace envelopes me and He guides me to verses in the Bible and with wisdom in what He is saying on the proper course to take to handle the situation in a Christ like manner.

I do them same thing for every problem and worry.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength. Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Your Divine deliverance from all worry, stress and short temperance with Your Holy peace, wisdom and strength. I exalt you in the name of He who is the greatest Deliverer of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Does Not Leave the Guilty Unpunished.

SCAMMERS PAY

Maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished. Exodus 34:7 Holy Bible, New King James Version

No matter how long we have walked with our Beloved we are still sinners. We all have our weak moments when we surrender to sin. Sometimes we know what Jehovah is saying in our lives but because it is not what we want to hear we rebel against His wise guidance. Of course, when we repent (repent means admitting what we did was wrong, apologizing for it and ceasing to commit the offensive behaviour or attitude) with a sincere heart Jehovah is quick to forgive by the grace of His beautiful sons precious blood.

Even the strongest saint is still a wicked sinner. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now as for the arrogant who even refuse to acknowledge Jehovahs existence much less accept His authority there is nothing for them but Jehovahs terrible just punishment. You cannot deceive, con or manipulate Jehovah and there is none of this nonsense of “it is not my fault but ____________ {fill in the blank, i.e. I came from a poor family, my race, it is soceites fault ect. Ect. Ect..} fault. His punishment here on earth is that they will suffer seven times what they did unto others and in death a damnation of an eternal residence in Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for Your amazing grace that I undeservedly am blessed with when I repent of my filthy sins unto You. Thank you as well for the assurance that the wicked in this world may foolishly believe that they are getting away with their wickedness but cannot escape Your Divine true justice being cast down upon them like devouring blazing coals upon their evil wicked heads. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Will Never Understand It.

God loves each of

 For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. Ephesians 2:8-9 Holy Bible , Amplified Version.

We will never understand it. How Jehovah in His amazing love allowed His most cherished Son to be humiliated, beaten, tortured, mocked and allowed to die an agonizing death and be cast into hell for three days because of His awesome love for us.

Most of us were less than holy when He graciously came to us, indeed many of us were downright scoundrels.

Scoundrels make the best saints because they realize the magnificence of Jehovahs love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

In the world you have to earn it if you want it (except of course in “liberal” societies were the bums expect the government to do everything for them because of the “you owe me” attitude which is destroying some many societies in the world today). Yet Jehovah, in His miraculous love, came unto us with such an fabulous offer that we would be insane to refuse.

This, of course, is not just salvation but also an astounding love affair of which is impossible to match anywhere else. As we progress in this relationship he slowly burns off the dross (sometimes he expels destructive addictions and behaviour on His own and some times He walks through it with it with us) to mold us into a truly new creation. Those that formerly new us are stunned and confused about the change. Of course this process will continue until we reach our heavenly home. As a result our love, respect and admiration for Him is constantly expanding.

“I do not understand the mystery of grace; only that it meets us where we are and doesn’t leave us where it found us.” Anne Lamott

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the most wonderful blessing of Your magnificent gift of grace unto a undeserving child such as I. Oh a great big thank you for your incredible transformation of a filthy little rag a bound into a beautiful child of Yours through a slow but steady hand of the Heavenly Molder. I exalt You in the name of he whose stunning gift of His cherished blood made all this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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