To All You Bigheads.

 The Son of Man must [of necessity] suffer many things and be rejected [as the Messiah] by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and must be put to death, and after three days rise [from death to life]. Mark 8:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is to all you bigheads. You know, the ones who are so full of themselves they have bigheads ( they are full of pride).

Before you go around participating in your favourite hobby, bragging about all of your wonderful, magnificent amazing accomplishments compare it to what Christ did.

Jesus suffered being unjustly beaten and tortured for all of humanity, what have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the agony of being nailed to a cross and hanging there for six long horrendous hours for all of those willing to accept His gift of His precious blood is the key to Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus willingly stayed on the cross and watched His beloved mother watch Him suffer a shameful death. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the vile ones laughing at Him, spitting on Him and making fun of Him so that we who accept Him as our Savior can become citizens of Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus died so that we who accept Him as our Heavenly Brother are adopted into an amazing Heavenly family. What have you done to compare with that?

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.” Isaac Watts

Kinda brings you down off of your high horse doesn’t it?

I know it does me when I begin to become bigheaded.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Yasha ( The Lord my Savior) for meditating upon Your awesomeness for what You have so graciously done for me to wipe clean all of my filthy sins upon my repentance. It helps to keep me humble in comparison to what You have done for me compared to what I have done for You and for myself. I adore You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

He Cannot Even Enjoy Them.

 

 As to the riches of his labor, He cannot even enjoy them. Job 20:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In China they call themselves “ House Slaves”. This is because they are so much in debt that most of their money goes to pay for an over priced apartment ( they do not have houses in China and call apartments houses). They are afraid to go on vacation because someone may break in and steal all of their valuables. There is the constant upkeep of the residence.

How much of a difference is there in the rest of the world to this enslavement?

The more material wealth you possess the more of a slave you become. Joseph son of Jehovah.

There have been numerous studies done that prove the more material wealth you have the less happy you are and the more paranoid you become. The less real friendship you have.

Gee does that not sound like something you should be envious of?

Then why are you envious of the martially rich when you can have the riches of Heaven in your grasp?

“Few rich men own their own property. The property owns them .” Robert G. Ingersoll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with an abundant supply of Your Holy love and provisions for my daily life and shall continue to do so throughout my life here. Thank you that You have prepared an amazing eternal home for me. I exalt You in the name of He who shall greet me there Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which One Comes From You?

  And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;  and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jehovah assigns as difficult task for you to do are you obstinate, stomp your feet and say I refuse like a spoiled little brat? Even though He reasons with you with His Word, Christian Councilors and signs.

Or, if He directs you to stop doing something do you obstinacy refuse?

Beware.

Jehovah only does what is for your good. So, if you refuse to listen to Him, you will pay greatly in the long run.

I have seen many obstinate folks refuse to listen and slowly sink deeper and deeper into a living Hell.

“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Perseverance means a continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.

Obstinacy mean to be sticking to an opinion, purpose, or course of action in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.

If on the other hand you obey Him you will learn to wait upon His time to mold you into the child He desire you to be. Through our hardships we become stronger in our trust in Him to see us through them and burn off the dross to become pure children of Jehovah. This will mold us into Holy children of Jehovah and be assured of our salvation. Do not think this is a one off experience. It takes years, even decades for Jehovah to accomplish His desire in you His beloved child.

That is why us older children need to come along side of the younger ones to strengthen them with our witness.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me to guide me and strengthen me as You mold me into the child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of He whose strength helped Him endure the horrible cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Peevish Discontented Minds

  The whole congregation of the Israelites [grew discontented and] murmured and rebelled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,and the Israelites said to them, Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and ate bread until we were full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this entire assembly with hunger.” (To understand Israel’s rebellious behavior, it is important to grasp the contrast between life in Egypt and nomadic life in the wilderness. Despite the hardships of slavery survival was not an issue in Egypt, where they were guaranteed food and other necessities. But the desert wilderness was hostile and unforgiving, and survival was an art. Desert nomads needed to understand the wilderness in order to stay alive; they had to learn, among other things, how to protect themselves from the weather, where to find water and pasture, and how to find and prepare scarce food, or live primarily from what their livestock could provide them. So the Israelites viewed every new problem they faced as life-threatening. Instead of looking back and taking comfort from God’s earlier miracles, they doubted God’s ability and willingness to help them. Their fears and doubts subsequently came to be expressed as irrational anger toward Moses. ) Exodus 16:2-3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many of us ask Jehovah for something but are never satisfied?

We ask for a job but when we get one we do not like the work because it is too hard or it is too boring.

We ask for a place to live but it is too far from the bus stop or grocery store or park.

We ask for direction in life but it is not where we want to go.

We desire good Christian friends but can always find fault with them.

I think the real reason we are discontented is because of greed. We want the best and nothing less is good enough for us.

Jehovah blesses with what we need not always with what we want. Joseph son of Jehovah

That is the ultimate insult of ungratefulness and a huge slap in the face to our loving generous Father in Heaven. More so for those of us that have walked with Christ for any length of time and so can reflect back at His previous provisions for us. Peevish discontented minds will find fault with that which has no fault in it but that it is too good for them.

Those that might be very happy often make themselves very miserable by their discontents. Matthew Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a grateful heart towards you and those around me for all the wonderful blessings You and those around me share with me every day. I ask this in the name of the greatest blessing of which I am eternally grateful for 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.

Do Not be Conformed.

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

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every day it is getting stronger and stronger, the will of satan upon the world. He is trying to pollute folks minds into believing his depravity that what is wrong is right, like homosexuality and if it feels good do it. It oozes into every crack and nick of society form the poor to the rich. From every nationality and creed.

It is not bravery for Christ that we stand and fight but love for the gullible that are following the dammed into Hell. Joseph- Anthony; Green.

We are not to be conformed to those who are marching into Hell but to be transformed into fierce, brave warriors of Christ that stands up for what is right using the Bible as our sword to slice through the satanic lies ( please do not attempt to use physical force as that plays into satans hands and defeats the purpose).

“The opposite of bravery is not cowardice, but conformity.”  Robert Anthony

Prayer: Please Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) abundantly bless me wisdom ,strength and courage whenever the wicked ones come challenging me of Thy existence and of severing lucifer by spreading lies to pollute unsuspecting innocent minds to steer them away from You and towards Hell. I humbly request this in the name of He who defeated all the minions of lucifer with Thy divine truth Jesus Christ Amen.

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

You will Condemn.

cannot-outrun

  “No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Have you ever been set up by someone ?

You know , they are angry with you with out just cause or they are jealous of you so they set you up to embarrass you or to shame you in front of a crowd weather it be at school ,at work, at a family get together or in a social setting.

They think they are so smart don’t they ?

The trap the evil ones lay for the righteous the wicked will fall into themselves. Joseph- Anthony ;Green

We who are of Christ know that the Holy Spirit dwells with in us. We must pray for wisdom ,gracefulness, meekness and humbleness.

When confronted with their evil schemes the Holy Spirit will bless us with such to shoot them down and the shame shall come pouring down upon their heads like fiery coals.

I have read articles on how to deal with narcissists and stubborn folks which have helped me enormously. It is difficult to put into action at first but with practice it hones my skills and confidence. We are filled with peace and calm, wisdom and security during the confrontation.

Now we are not to become like them and be cruel, vindictive or arrogant. Then we shame our Beloved in Heaven.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) for blessing me with Your incredible providence to escape the traps the wicked ones so arrogantly prepare for me in their evil schemes which they fall into themselves . I praise You in the name that escaped the wicked Pharasee’s traps Jesus Christ . Amen

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