Why Don’t They

For this is the will of God, that you be sanctified [separated and set apart from sin]: that you abstain and back away from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honour [being available for God’s purpose and separated from things profane], not [to be used] in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God and are ignorant of His will. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Most popular TV shows and movies glorify sex out as something lustful and fun. Why don’t they show those same people going to the doctor to get treated for syphilis, gonorrhea and aids?

Why don’t they show an unborn baby being ripped from its mothers womb and being thrown into an incinerator like a piece of garbage?

Why don’t they show most children born out of wed lock join gangs and lead destructive lives?

Why don’t they show the affected one with sexual disease explain to family and friends they have a life destroying disease because of their poor choices?

Why don’t they show people laying in bed afterwards wondering how it feel that someone just used your body to satisfy their lust and how they feel empty, sad and used?

Why don’t they show young people who lose out on going to school, getting a good education and job being cast into the abyss of welfare, booze, drugs and a meaningless life?

Could it be because sex sells while responsible, respectful, loving relationships do not?

Could it be because most people do not want to think of the life altering consequences of their foolishness?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) forgive the arrogant who blatantly give You the finger by abusing their bodies and then blaming You when it comes time to pay the penalty. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest Teacher who was ignored Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Bag with Holes in It.

 “Is it time for you yourselves to live in your [expensive] paneled houses while this house [of the Lord] lies in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! You have planted much, but you harvest little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have enough to be intoxicated; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns wages earns them just to put them in a bag with holes in it [because God has withheld His blessing].” Haggai 1:3-6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you have a bag with holes in it ( instead of bag insert wallet )?

Could it be because you are so selfish that you earn a penny and spend a dollar ( on yourself of course)? So when you refuse to share your wealth Jehovah allow the devil to tempt you into getting into dept to satisfy your unquenchable desire for more, more, more. Then you are miserable.

Could it be that you plant a lot of seeds to be friends with others while neglecting the crop of daily interaction with Jehovah so you harvest a little from your relationship with Him?

Could it be that in your quest for recognition form others ( self-centeredness- look at me, look at me) that you never get enough and go to foolish and many times dangerous lengths to get noticed by others instead of directing them to Jehovah? As a consequence you are never satisfied. Instead of nurturing a loving relationship with Jehovah you nurture your own ego and as a result you are cold with little or no love in your life. As a result the temple of Jehovah that resides within you is in ruins.

Prayer: I humbly pray my loving Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) that You daily guide this modest servant of Your to constantly build upon and glorify Your Holy Temple so that it is a beacon to those walking in the cold dark world to You amazing Temple. I sincerely request this in the name of He who shines the most brilliantly of Your holy temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered Jesus Christ . Amen

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

At Compound Interest.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 One of the advantages of getting old is seeing the hand of Jehovah in others lives during the course of a few decades.

If then, you act with hostility toward Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times in accordance with your sins.” Leviticus 26:21 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed many of the proud and arrogant laugh as they foolishly believe they can live their lives as they see fit and are cruel and dishonest with their neighbours. Through the course of time their mental, physical and spiritual health deteriorates until they are living a daily life of living hell all alone. They are angry and bitter. The strange thing is that they know if they repent at least they will have mental and spiritual health but because they are arrogant they refuse, even unto death. At the moment of death they are alone and terrorized knowing that they are doomed to be cast into eternal Hell where they belong. There is a deep sense of doom and gloom in the room and you cannot wait to get out of there. It is a very sad and pitiful site to see no matter how bad they were to you.

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the [steadfast] lovingkindness which He swore to your fathers. He will love you and bless you. Deuteronomy 7:12-13 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed those that love Jehovah and are obedient unto Him. They are kind, loving, joyous and generous. They age gracefully and are surrounded with a swarm of others to constantly help them when they need help in their old age. They are enveloped with an aura of peace, love, joy and gentleness. You cannot help but love to be around them and help them. When it is time for them to pass on to the other side they are surrounded by loved ones. There is a peace in the room when they pass on. You cannot help but cry with joy at the honour of being their friend and look forward to being with them in Heaven.

“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your divine guidance to walk in Your Heavenly light. Thank you that the fruit of this light is love, joy and peace and with the numerous opportunities to share this light with others in a cold, cruel dark world. I praise you in the name of the Prince of Light Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

One of the Most Harmful Habits.

 

 

 “There can be no doubt that possessive clinging to things is one of the most harmful habits in the Christian life. Because it is so natural, it is rarely recognized for the evil that it is. But its outworkings are tragic.” A. W. Tozer

At one time I worked a lot of overtime and invested my money according to the advice of financial planners (Be careful of them. They are not all good as I sadly found out). I lived a very frugal lifestyle just to save up for a comfortable early retirement. Alls I lived for was to stash money away to make that baby grow. Sadly events occurred that wiped me out not once but three times. I felt totally devastated and if the world had literally ended. Each time I wanted to give up but went right back to it again. During this time my Bible gathered dust and the only time I talked with my beloved was when I wanted something from Him. Our relationship was on life support. When things crashed I went to Him but when the new nest egg stared growing I deserted Him for the nest egg. What a pitiful life it was. It was one of the most harmful habits that could exist in anyones life.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matthew 6:33 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Finally, when I had nothing left I surrendered unto the Holy Spirit. Through decades (talk about a slow learned huh) He taught me to be submissive and obedient unto Jehovah’s calling in my life. Yes it has been hard but that was a blessing because it has brought us ever closer together. The harder the times the closer it brings me to Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green I have a deep respect, love and admiration for my Beloved Father, King and Holy Teacher. This is the greatest treasure of all. Through it all He has always provided fro my needs (not wants which is fleshly).

“I will place no value on anything I have or may possess, except in relation to the kingdom of Christ.” David Livingstone  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your daily provision which You graciously bless me with. I thank You in the name of He whose cherished sacrifice made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He also Brought Me Up.

CHRISTS POWER

He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. Psalm 40:2

mire a troublesome or intractable situation, heavy often deep mud or slush Merriam Webster dictionary

When I was a tree planter and we worked in deep mud it clung to our boots and made walking extremely labourous and difficult. Clay clings to you when wet and hardens like cement when it dries out.

What situation are you in that is clinging to you and dragging you into exhaustion, frustration and desperation? Is it a habit that is destroying your life?

You do not need self help groups or satanic politically correct filth that teaches that if you work real hard you will conquer whatever problem you have in your life.

You need the power of the Holy Spirit which Jehovah abundantly blesses us with when we surrender it unto Him. Now it may happen instantaneously or it may take a while.

When I surrendered the destructive addiction of alcoholism to Jehovah the Holy Spirit instantly crushed it and expelled it from me. When I decided to quit smoking it was a daily battle (at the time of this writing it has been two months and the struggle is still continuing). Some times I gave in and had a smoke but the determination is there to destroy this filthy habit. I know it cannot be done by my own will power but by working with the Holy Spirit we will eventually eternally eliminate it from my body.

For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again. Proverbs 24:16 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Either way, the Lord will bless you with firm footing to not only destroy the wicked destructive habit but He will bless you with a new firm path that leads you to a deeper love and appreciation for Him. When that happens and you encounter someone else trying to battle a destructive habit it is your duty to give testimony of how Jehovah freed you from your slavery and encourage them lovingly.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with delivering me from destructive habits that were too strong for me to conquer on my own by Your mighty power. I exalt Thee in the name of He who is the name we call upon to rescue us from all devastating weaknesses Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

His Trouble Shall Return

He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown. Psalm 7:15-16 New King James Version

We have all met, I am sure, those who delight in causing trouble.  They love to cause fights between families, they love to cause fights between friends, they love to cause fights at work or school and they love to cause fights at public events (just look at soccer matches in Europe). They get their perverted pleasure from watching others fight and the grief it causes.

Give it time. It always comes back on them. And when it happens it always happens when they least expect it and at a very inopportune time (like say door crashers at a wedding reception or at a social event where it will cause them a lot of embarrassment.

The other thing I have noticed about them is that when they are young they believe they are getting away with it but as they age (it usually begins in their forties) they find themselves friendless. When they need companionship or help there is no one there for them.

Another thing I find happens is that they end up with tormentors (say a neighbour that is constantly playing loud music and doing things to anger them and laughing in their faces. Their lives are one of constant torment.

I have seen it too many times to count (that is one advantage of being older; we get to see them receive them fruits of their labours as it were). When confronted with these wicked creatures do not take things into your own hands but leave them in the hands of Jehovah. It may seem as if they are getting away with it and you may not see Jehovahs justice but be sure they will get what they have coming to them.

WRONG WALK

The seeds you plant today you will harvest in abundance tomorrow. Be careful the type of seeds you are planting. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. Proverbs 21:15 New International Version

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. Luke 18:7-8 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is the Supreme Judge) for promising and delivering on Your Divine word that You will ensure true justice is done to the wicked who persecute, harm and cheat Your beloved children. I thank You in the name of the King who will deliver eternal justice on the Day of Judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.

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