All scripture is for instruction.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 All Scripture is God breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]. 2 Timothy 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

A desire to know merely to know, is curiosity.

But a desire to know in order to do, is godliness.

I have met many that can quote any Bible verse for any situation. When asked if they put it into application in their lives they just give me a dumb look and walk away.

I have met a few of the wise that can quote a Bible verse for any situation and explain what it means and how the Holy Spirit helped them to put it into application in their lives. Those are the ones I will listen to and respect.

“To know God is to know that our obedience is due to Him.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wisdom and fortitude to obey what has been taught to me by Your wise teacher The Holy Spirit. Doing so blesses me with being a good and faithful servant. I edify You in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

The Doctrines of Scripture Are.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The doctrines of Scripture are at once . . .the source of consolation, and the means of sanctification. It is in our worse agony that we experience the greatest consolation from our Heavenly Beloved. Sometimes He speaks to us in His loving word (the Bible) and sometimes He comes to us in spirit and comforts us personally. Either way we experience Divine comfort and encouragement.

To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer according to the dictionary. We as Jehovahs children are set apart from the world in our thinking, living and actions. We are to be beautiful lights that glow from our Heavenly relationship with our Divine Designer, Jehovah, so that we are beacons guiding those stumbling in the dark world into the Celestial Light, Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture . . .come into the mind as knowledge, produce peace and love in the heart, spread the beauties of holiness over the character and conduct. These Holy doctrines are taught to us individually by the supreme teacher, The Holy Spirit. They are not taught as a system of religion but rather are taught as a manner in which the child of Jehovah become holy.

One of the fruitations of growing in knowledge and application of scripture in Heavenly peace and love as we emulate our best friend Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture are light; and like the rays of the sun, they sustain life at the root of the vine, and produce fruit on its branches.

Just as sunlight bring live giving vitality unto the vine so too does scripture enlarge spiritual life in the child of Jehovah. This life produces abundant harvests in the society it dwells in.

This heavenly light of truth gives . . . spiritual vitality to the soul, and holy conduct to the life. The truth will truly set us free from the lies in the world around us and fill us with vitality to share this light with others. This is first accomplished in the conduct of the saint.

The doctrines of Scripture are facts, which involve corresponding emotions and principles of action, and must, from their very nature, if believed, be operative upon the heart and the life.

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your abundant Divine knowledge in the proper manner in which to conduct myself according to Your wise principals.

Please bless me with the strength to consistently incorporate them into my daily life.

I gratefully thank You and humbly beseech You in the name of the wisest most obedient man to ever walk the earth 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

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.

Show You Great and Mighty Things

devine-communion

 ‘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

The best education you can get is in the University of Jehovah. Man the courses provided there are unimaginable. One of the benefits of attending this university is that the courses are never ending. Just as you complete one another one begins. Just when you naively belief there is nothing else to learn something pops up that stuns and amazes you.

Yes there are exams but you cannot study for them. Either you have learned them or you have to repeat the course. There is no failing just that you need more tutoring to digest what is being taught.

Of course we have our mentor ( The Holy Spirit ) is on twenty four hour call. He may not answer your call all the time though. That is because He does not want you to get lazy and have Him do all your thinking for you. As you progress at this university you fall deeper and deeper in love with the faculty:

The headmaster is a kindly Father called Jehovah, the Head Teacher is a patient teacher by the name of Jesus Christ and the mentor is truly awesome the manner in which He tutors to each of us individually by the name of The Holy Spirit.

The more you are at this university the more time you desire to talk with these three incredible deans ( some call it prayer).

The admission price is accepting Jesus Christ as your savior, king and best friend. That you as such, have become His bondsman or woman ( which means you freely serve them out of love ). The invitation is open to all, rich and poor, young and old of every nationality.

Why do you not come join us?

The graduation services are held in a beautiful place that will be our eternal home, it is called Heaven.

“What wings are to a bird and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.” Corrie Ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with entry into the most amazing school there can every be with the most awesome teachers. Thank you for the free life time enrolment and for the patience with this some times dull witted student. I praise You in the name of He whose blood paid the tuition fee 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.

The Question is, Who Listens?

gods-word

 Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience]. Psalm 34:11 Amplified Bible

No, that is not your conscience speaking to you, that is the Holy Spirit.

The devil is an expert at twisting the truth into a lie so if you depend upon your “conscience” you are easy prey for Him.

Then how will you know if it is the Holy Spirit or the devil?

The answer is in developing a deep personal relationship with Jehovah by reading your Bible and obeying what it says.

From my personal experience when I am reading the Bible and a verse jumps out at me, that is the Holy Spirit speaking to me. I stop reading and pray for enlightenment. Then he guide me to understanding the Bible verse in context to what He is saying about my life.

Another way is to listen to good sermon like on sermonaudio and reading good Christian books like can be found on sites like goodread and https://www.gutenberg.org (personally my preference is for the old classics). Of course we should also have godly Christian councilors.

The problem I have sadly witnessed too frequently is that even when others know Jehovah is speaking to them the deliberately chose to ignore Him because he is telling them something they do not want to hear. They want their way, not Jehovahs. That is a sure recipe for disaster. Then when catastrophes occur they go cry babying to Jehovah and ask why He is doing this to them.

God is speaking to all of us, all the time. The question is not, to whom does God talk? The question is, who listens? Neale Donald Walsch

Are you experiencing difficulties in your life right now?

Are you listening to Jehovah as He is speaking to you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with patiently teaching me to be wise, gracious, humble and meek like my Beloved King Jesus. Thank you for the tools You have blessed me with to receive an ever deepening of these blessings. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Rabbi of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I See it too Often.

“We take care of our possessions for our children. But of the children themselves we take no care at all. What an absurdity is this! Form the soul of thy son aright, and the rest will be added hereafter.” John Chrysostom

Far too often I see parents and especially grandparents spoiling their children and grandchildren with giving them everything they want. This is ham stinging them for adulthood.

Then when they become adults they are self centered, arrogant, rude and selfish and the parents and grand parents cry baby about their attitude and behavior.

I have seen it far too often.

Do not be concerned about the physical inheritance you are leaving your children but rather the moral and spiritual one which is far more important. Joseph- Anthony: Green

If you want success you have to work for it.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 Holy Bible, New International Version

Meanwhile they spend so little time with their children doing family things like sharing chores around the house (which teaches them responsibility), sitting down and just talking with them (and yes, listening to them), having picnics with them, going for walks with them where they can bond. They lecture their children while turning around and doing the very things they lecture their children not to do.

Every parents motto is not to be ”do as I say” but rather “watch me”.Joseph- Anthony: Green What type of inheritance are you leaving?

“Train your child in the way in which you know you should have gone yourself.” Charles H. Spurgeon Prayer:

Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for being the most loving Father whose guidance and discipline has moulded me into being appreciative and respectful toward You and to cherish this gracious gift. Please bless all parents and grand parents to emulate Your wise method of being a righteous parent. I give thank and pray for these blessings in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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