This is Why There is So Much

LAUGH AT FOOLS

 For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4  The Holy Bible Amplified Version                               

This is why there is so much violence today. Folks try to fight spiritual battle on their own and fail miserably. The demons are far wiser and stronger than we. They know our weaknesses and how to manipulate them to perpetrate evil on those around us. They laugh because they not destroy us but those around us. The idiots of the world (liberals) mock the spiritual world and arrogantly try reason and logic. The demons can easily manipulate these for their own nefarious ends. They easily make fools out of liberals (not that they need any help in that category).

We as Christians have the supreme weapon to defeat the spiritual battle before it manifests itself into the physical one. He is the Holy Spirit. He will not only enlighten us to the demons heinous plans but the power to defeat them in our own lives and sometimes in others.

Concerning others there may be nothing in our arsenal but prayer. Do not take that tool lightly for the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. Do not think for a moment we are not in constant battle against the wicked ones. This is especially true for those that are close to Christ. They will stop at nothing (but the force of the Holy Spirit) to destroy our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Do not worry about this because The Holy Spirit is always with us. That does not mean we can play with the devil and expect the Holy Spirit to rescue us either.

There is a price to pay for foolishness. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defence) for blessing me with the best defensive weapon to defeat the wicked satan and his evil parasites when they attempt to destroy our loving relationship. Thank you for enlightening me to their wicked plans and how to thwart them. I praise You in the name of He who defeated Satan and his henchmen on the cross and the empty tomb Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Reach Out to Them.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

But the stranger who resides with you shall be to you like someone native born among you; and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:34 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

They are everywhere, especially in todays electronic society, lonely people.

We as Christians are to reach out to them. It is the perfect opportunity to share explaining to them the prospect of being blessed with a loving relationship with He who is the best friend one could ever have and a loving relationship of which no other can compare.

Before adventuring out for the day may I suggest you ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to someone who needs compassion.

Trust, me , when you sincerely ask of Him, He will guide you to just the right soul.

May I suggest you take a course in how to approach others and how to listen to them. As well, it is advisable to carry around a list of services available to help them if need be. So, say for example say someone is lonely, why not find out their interests and help them find a club to join, especially a Christian one.

“We need to care less about whether our children are academically gifted & more about whether they sit with the lonely kid in the cafeteria.” unknown

Now discretion is required because of dangerous places and folks. Do not approach a junkie when they are high or someone who is so angry looking they look like they are ready to explode.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me with the guidance of the Holy Spirit to guide me to those with open lonely hearts unto Your most awesome love. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose love for the lost took Him all the way to the cross 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

But for Scars.

                                                                    

And if [we are His] children, [then we are His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His spiritual blessing and inheritance], if indeed we share in His suffering so that we may also share in His glory. Romans 8:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When in a boxing match the opponent will always land a few shots, many times leaving scars for the rest of your life.

So too it is with the Christians battle.

Make no doubt about it we are in a constant battle when we become Jehovahs children.

Yes we are in continuous battle with satan and his minions but we are also in ceaseless battle against society (more so in the west than in communist countries from my experience). The anti-Christ that goes by the label of liberals are really anti-Christs in their every belief. By anti- Christ it means they are against the morals set down by Jehovah and by default by Christ. Many times they will leave deep scars from battles we both win and lose.

The most severe battles of course are within our own families. They know us best so they know how to cut us deep and many do so with complete gusto. They will cut the deepest.

I have met many who have gone through seminary that are more in line with satan than with Christ and know little more than theology and nothing of having a loving relationship with Christ.

I see many who serve themselves by pretending to serve Christ, this is especially true with missionaries. They are there more to glorify themselves than to share the gospel. And, with many missionaries I have met, they live off of others by pretending to be serving Christ.

“God will not look you over for medals, degrees, or diplomas, but for scars.” Elbert Hubbard

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord my King Forever) for blessing me with the gift of suffering for You as You suffered for me. I know that when You see these scars You shall look at them, smile at me and say the words I long to here from Thy precious lips: “Well done good and faithful servant.” I give thanks for this grace in Your suffering name. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Gratitude is Not Only

Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]. Psalm 100:3Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Gratitude is described as acknowledgement of having received something good from another.

Yes we are to know that Jehovah made us and not being insulting idiots and believe that we are descended from monkeys. We are to recognize which means we are to have a clear understanding that we are a Divine creation.

To me that fills me with gratitude and meaning.

After all, how many folks go around and wonder why they are here?

I know why I am here. I was created to be blessed with a Divine loving relationship with our Heavenly Father. I am His and He is mine.

In gratitude I am obedient unto His direction in my life. This gives me Divine purpose.

Again, how many folks wonder what their purpose in life is.

I know mine.

It is to serve an amazing King.

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]. For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:8-10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This leads me to a virtuous life.

Virtue means a conduct that conforms to an accepted standard of right and wrong.

Whose standard of what is right or wrong will you trust, Jehovahs or the worlds? Look around at the world and see if you want to live that type of life, I certainly do not.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” — Cicero

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my life a heart dedicated to nurturing a loving obedient live dedicated to You. I love You and praise You in the name of my Beloved brother in Your Heavenly family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.

I Love to Have Intercourse with God.

i-love-you-my-lord

  As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Psalms 42 Holy Bible New International Version

Having intercourse means to enjoy a relationship with Him ( no not just sexual but in conversation as well. ).

Think of a marriage, if the couple only have intercourse in courting and then say :Well we had intercourse before marriage we do not require any more in our relationship. “ is that relationship not doomed? Think of how you were always calling , texting and desiring to spend time together in courtship. If there is none of that in the marriage that is not a marriage but a life sentence.

If a child says I had intercourse with you when I was born, I no longer require intercourse with you is that not abusive? What kind of family life is that?

So too it is with us.

We need daily intercourse with our Beloved if we desire for our relationship to grow. Just as a thirsty deer pants for cool life giving refreshing water so too are we to pant for Jehovahs sweet love in our daily lives. We must have a deep desire for a daily meeting with Him.

If you have no desire to enjoy and nurture a relationship with Christ , you are not a Christian. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the honoured privilege of sharing Divine intercourse with You. It is truly one of my most treasured gifts You have blessed me with. I humbly and joyously thank You in the name of my best friend with whom is always there to share treasured time with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Washes Them Away.

waterfalls tumbling into chartreuse lake between exotic trees

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

Have you ever sat by the shore of a lake or ocean?

I like to sit there and relax. As the waves go out they grab my anger, fear, frustration, worry and sorrow and carry them away. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He washes them away. As the waves come in they fill me with peace. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He fills me with His divine peace love and joy.

Now, we do not need an ocean or lake to experience this blessing but it is experienced its most effective in nature. Try sitting by a small creek with little rapids or a quite forest or a quiet meadow.

Here is the formula I use: first I close my eyes and bawl my eyes out unto my Heavenly Father what ever the problem is. Then I sit there quietly while He blesses me with enveloping me in His loving, comforting arms. Once He has filled me with His Divine peace I slowly open my eyes and He reveals all the beauty around me He has created. Every time there is an over whelming feeling of love, joy, peace and awe. I fill at one with my Beloved and cannot but help shout out “ I love You oh Holy Father, I love You.” It is truly the most amazing experience I have ever been blessed with.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for Your blessings of bountiful peace during the storms that crash around me and the fires that surround me through out my walk with You. I magnify You in the name of the Price of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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