Are You Filled With Him?

Gentle bAsain bridge across calm lagoon-crop

The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:17 New King James Version

Are you filled with the Holy Spirit?

Many times during prayer time or worship time singing praises to my Beloved Father in heave, my precious King, Savior and best friend Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit my guidance councilor, healer, strengthener and comforter I am so filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit it feels as if I am going to explode into a million molecules of ecstasy.

 

Have you ever felt that during worship time?

It does not have to be in church.

It can be in your bedroom or while enjoying communion with them in nature which is the best place to commune with them because you are in the world Jehovah created, not the noisy world man has created.

At the same time we need to be filled with the Holy Spirits wisdom in our daily lives and all the decisions that must be made there in.

If the Holy Spirit fills us with knowledge of the right thing to do and we are not wise enough to obey Him we will exhaust Him and he will depart from us.

Oh what a pitiful man or woman it is to have the Holy Spirit depart from them.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

But do not worry.

When you call out to Him in repentance and are willing to be obedient to Him, He will gladly return to you.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) for the precious gift of the Holy Spirit to Sheppard me in life and fill me with divine joy. In deep gratitude in the name of he who made this privilege possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Three Reasons.

TRUTHFUL LIPS

Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. John 3:19-20 New King James Version

People refuse to believe the work of Christ in our lives and His calling in our lives for three reasons.

 

The first reason is because they do not want to hear the word of God. They do not want to hear it because it will convict them of their sin and they stubbornly insist on being independent and going their own way.

 

The second reason is because they do not want to hear the gospel their hearts and minds will be closed to what you are sharing with them so they will not understand. What you say will be nonsense to them.

The third reason is because they do not want to hear the word, they will not understand what you are saying so therefore they will not believe what you are saying.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bestow upon me the wisdom, grace and meekness to understand when peoples minds and hearts are closed to Your divine word so as to know when to cease wasting their time and mine. I request this in the name of He whose own townsfolk refused to listen to Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

Concentrate on Him.

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8 New King James Version

Instead of concentrating on self to gain happiness which always leaves you feeling empty (you know I need a new car or house to be happy. I need to make more money. I need the latest fashion clothes to be happy {it constantly amazes me how shallow people are to buy designer clothes that are no better than no name one but twice the price} or I need a better body) concentrate on Christ.

It is always the most fulfilling experience to enjoy a beautiful love affair with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

 

This is accomplished with setting aside quiet time every day reading His love letter and guidance book to you (the Bible) and talking with Him.

It also involves finding a quiet place in nature to just sit and enjoy communing with Him.

 

Enjoying nature is the best place to commune with Christ.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Jehovah made nature, man made cities. Which do you find more serine and beautiful?

 

The other way to develop a relationship with Him is to serve Him.

Request the Holy Spirit to guide you to the best place to serve Him and then depend upon His guidance to accomplish the work he has brought you to do.

Think of it as you and the Holy Spirit being a tag team. During this time you will feel as a partner and will enjoy working with the best Guidance Councilor.  When you do this you will experience joy.

 

The difference between happiness and joy is like comparing a bowl of instant soup to a smorgasbord of delicacies.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ElHeenu (the Lord our God)  for the incredible honour of being a member of Your holy family. The most cherished time of my day every day is the time I spend with You. I give thanks for this treasure in the name of the best friend one could ever have Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

If We Live in the Spirit Walk in the Spirit.

DIVINE STRENGTH

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever  the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17 New King James Version                                                                            

If the spirit lives in us, should we not walk in the spirit?                                                   

So does that not mean we are to ask for, allow and depend upon the Holy Spirit to provide us with guidance in every aspect of our lives?                                                                  

And, when He blesses us with that guidance are we not to be obedient and obey His guidance?    

                                                                                                                

Speaking from personal experience I have found, the hard way, that disobeying Him brings nothing but trouble into my life.                                                             

Although obeying Him does not mean a trouble free life, it does mean a lot less trouble and a lot more peace and joy.                                                                                

Jehovah Immanuel (God amongst us) please bless me with the power and wisdom to walk in harmony with You in every way, every day. Joseph- Anthony: Green                 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Immanuel (God amongst us) please bless me with the power and wisdom to walk in harmony with You in every way, every day.  I humbly request this in the name of He who walked in perfect harmony with during His earthly ministry as he does now and forever more Jesus Christ. Amen.      

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

That Is Not the Way It Is Supposed to Be

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you Matthew 5:23 New King James Version                                                                                                                             

Do you notice that Jesus mentions that if your brother has a grievance with you, you are to make your peace with him?                                                                                 

He does not say that if you have a grievance against your brother.                                     

Too many Christians believe that they must forgive their brothers when they do bad things to them before their offering can be acceptable to God.                                                         

So let us say a brother has cheated you out of a lot of money, do you seriously believe that God wants you to forgive him his dept to you if he has the means to repay you before your offering will be acceptable to God?                                                

To me that is a very dangerous and misguided theology.                                              

Prayer: Please Jehovah grant me the wisdom to discern how to handle a problem between a  brother or sister who is indebted to me but refuses to pay his obligations even though they have the means to do so. I sincerely beseech this request in the name of He who taught Nichodemous to repay those to whom he was indebted to Jesus Christ. Amen                                           

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

Who Are You Trying To Impress?

WAIT UPON GOD

 

Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites. Mark 12:42 New King James Version      

                                                                                                                        

In Jesus’ day they had a place to put your offerings for the temple that looked like a trumpet. It was built out of tin, so that when your offering was put in it made a sound. Each type of money was a different weight so that one worth a lot of money had a lot of weight to it while one that was of little value was small and little weight. Therefore when the rich put in the heavy coins it made a lot of sound and made them look important.                                                                                                 

So what Jesus is saying is do not give to any cause just to look good to others. You may look good to others but Jehovah is not impressed if you are doing it for your ego. On the other hand any act done for Christ, no matter how small it looks to others impresses Jesus.    

                                                                                                  

So the question is: who are you trying to impress?                                                        

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) please grant me the grace to be an grateful child that desires to impress You with me worship and dedication to You.  I beseech You in the name of he who dedicated His entire earthly life to being Your holy obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                              

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

Hurry Up and Die.

SINFUL DESIRE

People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control,  brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 2 Timothy 3:2-5 New King James Version

One day in the supermarket line up the headline in a national magazine caught my eyes. It read:” Hurry Up and Die.”

The jist of the article is that many people that went through the great depression of the nineteen thirties scrunched and saved their money.

Their foolish materialistic children have gone in debt way over their heads. The children are not concerned because they believe the money they will get from their parents inheritance will pay their debts.

A consequence of this is many of the elderly are abuse by their children and grand children. They cheat their parents out of money, throw them into a seniors home and only come around when they want money. I have seen and witnessed this pathetic scenario too many times.

As I was reading the article 2 Timothy 3:2-5 flashed into my mind and pretty much every word there describes these low life’s I have met.

Now mind you, there are a lot of abusive parents that are unrepentant towards their now adult children so I believe they are getting their just due (although that does not excuse the children any more than the Pharisees were excused for nailing Christ to the cross).

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) whisper in the ears of the ingrates that the commandment after loving you is loving our parents. Abusing parents is hideous to You. As well my Beloved whisper in the ear of the parents whose children lovingly respectfully care for them to not be so difficult towards them but to be appreciative of them. I humbly ask this in the name of Your most loving and respectful son Jesus Christ. Amen.

They Did It to Him To.

PRAISE HIM

So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” Luke 17:17-18 New King James Version

 

Just think of the amazing blessing Jesus preformed in healing the lepers. They were ostracized from society yet with their cure they could go back to their family and friends.

Yet how many showed Him gratitude for His awesome blessings?

Only one.

So when you do something good for someone, do not be surprised if the majority do not thank you, they did it to Jesus as well.

Just be comforted in knowing that Jehovah knows what you did and you will be rewarded in Heaven for your graciousness.  It will be a jewel that is placed in your crown that Jesus will place upon your head in Heaven.

 

As well, give thanks for the opportunity to show kindness to others as Christ did for you with His sacrifice.

 

I personally just quietly praise the Lord for an opportunity to show His divine love through me, His humble servant. Then, there is no room for anger if I am slighted for the act of kindness I show others.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) remind me to thank you every day for the abundant blessings You graciously shower upon me. Please remind me my love that the ultimate purpose for sharing with others as You have shared with me is to bring You glory and heal the injury inflicted by the calloused ones that take the gifts for granted. I humbly beseech You in the name of He whose innumerous gifts were taken for granted when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

You are Not Black, You are White.

trust in God

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow Isaiah 1:18 New King James Version

 

Sin is like the black suite from a filthy chimney.

When you repent Jehovah cleans that filth away like a chimney cleaner cleans the suite from the chimney.

Therefore, you are not black, you are white.

Believe this and stop beating yourself up.

We all make mistakes, welcome to life. But, when we repent those black sins are washed away.

 

Do not believe the lies of satan to beat you down. He does this to drive a wedge between you and Jehovah. Because, if you believe his lies you will be afraid of punishment from the Lord. This hampers you from developing a loving relationship with him and that is satan’s aim.

I know, I used to beat myself up a lot for past sins until I received good Christian counseling and learned to let it go.

Satan tells you, you are filthy, Jesus tells you, you are clean, who are you going to believe? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) bless all your hurting children with the knowledge and faith that when they repent You truly graciously forgive them. I humbly ask this in the name of the one hose blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Time for Every Purpose.

WE MUST LET GO

To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 New King James Version

We must go on Jehovahs time not our own.

The quickest way to disaster is to go on my time and not Gods. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When I first became a Christian I wanted to go out and share the message with everyone, even though I was not mature enough to do it. As a consequence I failed miserably.

It took my King another eight years of preparing me before He assigned to me the task he had prepared for me to do in service unto Him. Then when I did receive His commission I did not want to go.

It is the same in every aspect of life. We must wait for His timing not our own.

This applies to waiting for marriages (think of how many divorces there are because folks got married before they were mature enough or until the right mate came along).

The same could be said for having children. How much less child abuse would there be if unsuitable parents never had children or waited until they were mature enough to handle being a parent?

 

You name it and we must wait for the appropriate season in our lives whether it be a career or service unto our Master.

Following the Masters leading detours us around a lot of pit falls. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me with patience and strength to wait upon You time in Your way to provide for me the blessings You desire. I humbly pray in the name of He who waited centuries before He provided salvation for us on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
