A Few Will Hear.

God  give us

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them. Acts 2:13 New King James Version                                                                                                              

When I was a teacher we would always get into discussions about why I live different from other foreign teachers the Chinese students have met. It would be explained to them that I was a Christian. Then we would get into debates about Christianity. After about six months there would only be about four students out of a class of fifty that would be open to accepting Christ.     

                                             

That was because just as there were many that heard but not all accepted with Peter.       

                                                                                                                                  

So too it was with me and so too it will be with you.                                                        

It is only those whose heart is open to hearing the Word that will be receptive to the Word. So give the message, if people’s hearts are open they will come to you, if their hearts are closed it does not matter what you say or do, they will refuse to listen and you are therefore wasting both their time and yours.                                     

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be your voice to the people. Please give me the wisdom to be open to those who are receptive to Your life giving word.                                               Please give me the wisdom and grace to be hospitipal to those who reject Your wise word.                  I humbly request this in the name of he who taught us the proper manner in behaving towards others Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                            

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

The Best Relationship Advice

GODS FAITHFULNESS

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding Proverbs 3:5 New King James Version

God knows not only you but the other person as well. There are many things in the other person that you do not see but He does. So therefore it is best to always trust Him in any and all relationships.   It will prevent a lot of heartache, frustration and suffering later on in your life.

 

That guy may be a smooth talker but in reality is an abusive jerk. Man have I ever met a lot of them.   Personally I have found those who like to dress in luxuriant styles are snakes in the grass.

 

That woman may appear to be sweet and innocent but in reality she is manipulative, domineering and a self centered emotional thief. They will suck the life out of you quicker that a vacuum cleaner.

 

That person may seem goofy because they are shy but when you talk with them you discover they are very wise. Many of the wisest men and women I have had the privilege to become friends with I at first thought they were are brite as a burnt out light bulb but were very intelligent,caring, respectful, loving and wise.

That person may seem like a snob but in reality is just a loner (just because we are loners does not mean we have mental problems either). I am a loner yet most people consider me very deep, caring and supportive once they get to know me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Rohi (God our Sheppard) guide me towards those who are loving, caring and respectful and away from the life suckers (those who suck the life out of you). I sincerely ask this in the name of He who was open to the loving ones and closed to the lurking wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Foreskin of Your Heart

DARKNESS

Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer. Deuteronomy 10:16 New King James Version

Circumcise: to cut off the foreskin of a male

Stiff-necked:  unreasonably or perversely unyielding Merriam Webster Dictionary

When the foreskin is removed it is thrown away.

In the same manner we are to throw away our stiff neckness before Jehovah. This means we are not to insist on going our own way and doing our own thing.

It means being submissive and obedient to Jehovahs commands in our life.

The consequences are of supreme importance to us.

If we insist on being stupid and stubborn  (the two go hand in hand) our lives will be met with a lot of difficulty, sadness and pain. I have seen too many fools dumbly insist on repeating the same foolish mistakes again and again and it only brings them to grief. They know they are wrong but too stupid and stubborn to admit it. Our ultimate destination is a very horrible place.

If we are obedient children to our Heavenly Fathers will we will be blessed with a supreme love affair and ultimately a Heavenly home.

Hell is full of men and women who say I did it my way. Heaven is full of men and women that say I did it Christs way.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be a receptive and obedient child of Your. I humbly request this in the name of He who was obedient all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

Please Take It Away.

TRUST IN HIM

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                      

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily. Isaiah 58:8 New King James Version                                                                                                               

On Friday I developed a terrible cold. It was so bad I could hardly breath, was constantly stuffed up and coughing. My head swam every time I sat up.                             

I prayed to my Beloved to cure the cold by Sunday so that I could attend a class on Monday to learn how to use the computer for some programs to enlarge Christ’s ministry He has chosen for me to serve Him. 

                                                                                                      

I awoke Sunday morning with nothing but a little sinus congestion.                                    

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) blessing me with Your divine healing. I praise You in the name of the best healer ever Jesus Christ. Amen.                     

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

It Is Good For Me.

PURPOSE OF GOD

It is good for me that I have been afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes” Psalm 119:71 New King James Version

We all make mistakes. Wise men learn from them and correct them, fools keep on repeating them. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                        

When we are children we are taught to obey rules or their will be painful consequences like a spanking (except for the satanic politically correct who refuse to discipline their children and then wonder why there are so many problems in society today).                 

When we become Christians we are adopted into Gods family and are children.                         

God has rules which must be obeyed or there will be painful consequences (He is not politically correct). 

                                                                                                            

Sometimes we can all be stubborn and Jehovah will bless us with afflictions to get our attention that we are being disobedient.                                                                               

When we repent (which means we top being disobedient and saying we are sorry) He heals us and upon reflection back we see He did it for our own good.                                                  

In this we grow from those fed milk to those who are able to eat meat. This to me, means that when we first become Christians we learn the simple relationship with Christ. Through our afflictions we grow more mature and solid in our relationship with Christ.

The really important thing in life is not the avoidance of mistakes, but the obedience of faith. By obedience the man is led step by step to correct his errors, whereas nothing will ever happen to him if he doesn’t get going. Paul Tournier.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ElOhim (God our creator) for rescuing this child of Yours when I strayed from Your flock and Your on going work to mould me into the child You know I can be. I praise You in the name of Your most obedient chid Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

War Against the Soul.

SINFUL DESIRE

Abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. 1 Peter 2:11 New King James Version

                                                                                                    

If you are older like me you have witnessed the spiraling descension of our western society into a cesspool. In our  music, TV shows and movies morality has taken back seat to the shock effect to addict people to the filth. Look at many of todays singers when they were just starting out and portrayed as sweet and innocent. As that became passé they became more and more depraved to stay on top. 

                                                                        

Society thinks it is cool to emulate them.                                                          

Look at the movies and listen to popular songs. There is so much filth in it that laughingly is called entertainment.                                                            

It encourages premarital sex, why do they not have interviews with people who have contracted syphilis (we have a run for aids why not a run for syphilis which is much more common and much more deadly?) or had abortions and their lives ruined because of this lifestyle? 

                                                                         

Seeking after self instead of seeking to better society. Why do they not talk about how many suicides there are because of loneliness?               

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                        

Materialism which says buy this and you will be happy.                                 

Why do they not have interviews with folks that have had their lives and marriages destroyed by bankruptcy?                                                                     

Indeed is not every society in the world today facing eminent bankruptcy on a scale never witnessed before in history because of this empty “happiness”?                                                                                          

Is not every government in the world facing bankruptcy because their populace lives by the entitlement theory and to stay in power the politicians give the people what they want and not what they need?                                                                      

“We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves to be like other people.”  Arthur Schopenhauer   

                                                                                                         

On the other hand when you seek after Christ you are in the spiritual world. In this world you experience His love and divine joy which nothing of the flesh can even begin to compare with.      

                                  

I would not give up one moment of my Christian life for a lifetime of fleshly desires being fulfilled. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (god is love) for blessing me with the most treasured gift ever possible, Your divine love. I praise You in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.                                              

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

Strive Together With Me

praying in chinese church

Now I beg you, brethren, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in prayers to God for me Romans 15:30 New King James Version

Whenever I am facing difficult times I like to go on prayer request sites and find someone enduring the same trail and tribulations as myself. I like to email them explaining the situation and explain to them that I am praying for them and ask them to pray for me I believe this encourages sincere deep felt prayers.

Only those who suffer like you can pray like you. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

As well it is good when I placed a certain difficult time on this web page. The brothers and sisters that not only promised to pray for me but gave loving words of encouragement blessed me a lot of strength and comfort.

I have a prayer list of about six groups that I pray for every morning.

Because I am a part of that prayer I pray all the more earnestly.

Why not give it a try.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me with names of other brothers and sisters who are enduring the same strial and tribulations as I so that we can gain strength and comfort in each others prayers. I humbly request this in the name of He who prayed for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Like a Roaring Lion.

flowers caressing blazing red cross

 

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8 New King James Version

Lions stalk unseen in tall grass. They charge quickly and roar to paralyze their prey. They take their prey with no mercy, many times eating it alive.

So too does the devil and his minions prey upon Christians. Just when you think it is safe is when they attack.

 

That is why we need the Holy Spirit to be our guide in life. He is like the birds in the trees that sound the alarm when they see the lions approaching. When you have a gut feeling not to go somewhere or do something you had better pay attention. That is the Holy Spirit chirping to you of appending doom.

I can think of when a tempting contract was offered to me and a strong feeling said to not walk but run away from it. It was hard but I obeyed and found out later is was a very bad contract that would have caused me a lot of grief.

It is also why we need good Christian mentors in our lives, because many times they have fallen pray to some of the devils schemes he may be preparing for us.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KaEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to Your protective voice so I do not fall easy victim to one of the tricksters schemes. I humbly request this in the name of He who always exposed the wicked one Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Mighty Chain Smasher.

waterfalls tumbling into  chartreuse lake between exotic trees

Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:34-36 New King James Version

Satan always deceives you into thinking sin is fun. Then you become addicted to it and it becomes a living hell leading you into a permanent hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When I was a boy the neighbours and certain family member used to think it was fun to get me drunk. As I grew I became addicted to alcohol.

At one point I decided to quit all to no avail. I tried therapy, hypnosis, herbal medicine, proper diet. I tried it all.

Finally one night with my head hanging over a bucket puking my eyeballs out in a drunken stupor I called out to Jesus:” My Lord, save me from this living Hell, it is too strong for me to conquer on my own. I need you to rescue me.” At that moment I became sober and have no touched a drop since.

Many times I hear recovered alcoholics say they did it on their own but am reminded of what a drunk once told me:” Be careful; we are all one step from the gutter.” I hear how they fall off the wagon and their lives are totally destroyed.

We all have our addictions which we cannot conquer on our own. I believe it is a gift from Jehovah to make us realize how much we need Him. It is only when we surrender to Him that He truly sets us free and smashes the chains of addiction that are dragging us into a living Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for smashing the chains that were dragging me into Hell and blessing me with an amazing love relationship with You that leads to Heaven. I praise You in the name of He who has freed so many captive Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Garbage In, Garbage Out.

Christ, WILL LEAD

I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty And on Your wondrous works. Psalm 145:5 New King James Version                                                                                                                                       

Do you wonder why people are so unhappy today?

They listen to the garbage that passes off as music. Most of it talks about is drugs, booze and sex. People emulate it and then find themselves so very empty and sad.

They watch garbage on TV that glorifies cheating, sex, and drinking and they thry to emulate that garbage. Their reward is an empty, sad life.

They listen to the garbage with todays gurus that says if you try you will succeed . Then they fail.

 

Give my brother some boards and nails and he can build you a mansion, give me boards and nails and you better have an ambulance near by.

Try as hard as I can I can never build things with my hands because God has not intended that for me to do.

 

I would love to fly like and eagle but flap my arms as much as I like it can never be done.

 

Does that sound ridiculous?

So does these modern satanic gurus. Yes they are satanic because they encourage people to depend upon themselves instead of the true one who will and does bring meaning and joy to life. His name is Jesus.

When we become Christians Jehovah ahs specific plans for us which He knows will bless us with joy and fulfillment in serving Jesus.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them Ephesians 2:10 New King James Version.

I know, I have been there.

I had a good job, nice place and comfortable life but something was missing.

Then, when Jesus entered my life He slowly revealed His plans for me and as I followed Him my life gained more purpose and joy.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is my Sheppard ) for guiding me down Your holy path that You intended for me to follow before I was even born. It has blessed me with so much joy and purpose in life. I praise You in the name of He who gained the ultimate fulfillment Jesus Christ. Amen.
