He Will Pay Back Trouble.

cannot-outrun

 God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you. 2 Thessalonians 1:6 New International Version Holy Bible

Is there any trouble makers in your life right now?

You know they type, they are their happiest when they are causing trouble for everyone. When confronted about their despicable behavior they feign innocence, all the while laughing their wicked heads off on the inside. Many times it is a family member that is guilty of this which makes it all the worse.

Do not seek revenge nor feel anger towards them.

I know I feel anger towards them at first but then take it to Jehovah in prayer. He blesses me with peace and confidence that he is a just God and will repay seven time back to the perpetrator.

Then a deep feeling of pity for them envelopes me and I pray that the Holy Spirit convicts them unto repentance for their wicked behaviour before it is too late.

Sometimes they do repent sincerely and it is accepted graciously by me.

Sometimes they must still receive the punishment due to them ( for example if they ran a red light and hit my bicycle while drunk they must still face the consequences of their actions under the law).

Sometimes they just laugh at the “invisible boogy man God in the sky”.

As time slowly goes by I see the hand of Jehovah strike them with vengeance. Each time He inflicts His justice upon them it is worse than the previous one. Each time there is deep sorrow in my heart towards them for their arrogant foolishness as they needlessly suffer but I know there is nothing I can do about it.

Has someone intentionally done you wrong?

Yes you are to forgive them but you have every right to call down upon their head Jehovahs justice in the hopes that it will bring them unto repentance unto you, unto society and unto Jehovah.

Prayer: thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for the reassurance that there is no plea bargaining nor early parole for the wicked ones who delight in perpetrating evil wickedness upon innocent victims which many time the innocent suffer greatly because of. Please send the Holy Spirit unto them and convict them of their evilness to bring them to repentance before it is too late. I thank you and ask this in the name of the Supreme Judge of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Be Strong and Courageous

strenght-for-the-battle

Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 Amplified Bible

Today I saw it on the news where some teenage girls slapped and bullied a mentally handicapped child in a wheelchair. It was sickening.

It seems as if there is more and more incidents with gangs (especially teenagers) who gang up on someone and physically and verbally abuse them (this is especially troubling when they are doing it to a mentally challenged individual) while others are standing around filming it and laughing.

Why do others just stand up to the bullies?

When I was a kid that conduct would never have been tolerated.

Yes it is scary standing up to them but better a physical beating for doing what is right than a mental one tormenting you for not taking the stand. I have done it numerous times and never regretted it even decades later.

Now if possible it is preferable to contact the police if you think it is a life threatening situation.

Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened. –Reverend Billy Graham

The same can be said for where are the Christians standing up for our right to observe our faith.

Where are the Christians to take a stand against the continuous onslaught by satanic politically correct when they try to wrongly shove their filth down our throats which is a violation of our rights?

Yes do a write in to your local politician to express your anger and displeasure and demand they take a stand for your rights, yes support Christian business when they are persecuted for taking a stand and choosing their rights not to bow down to the satanic politically correct ( yes I am referring to those who went into Christian stores and demand they bow down to their demand like the homosexuals in that cake store and so called educators teaching that the filth of homosexuality it normal and okay).

Yes take a stand

“If you cannot hate evil, you cannot love good.” Struthers Burt

“What is morally wrong can never be politically right.” Lord Shaftesbury

“Those who will not be governed by God, will be ruled by tyrants.” William Penn

If we do not stand together we will fall apart. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jehovah Emet (God of truth)” bless your children to always stand up for Your ultimate truth in this wicked world with meekness, humbleness, gracefulness and strength. I beseech You in the name of He who never backed down Jesus Christ. Ammen.

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

That is a Good Thing.

trust in God

 And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. ROMANS 8:28 Amplified Bible

This verse should be the greatest comforter, encourager and strengthener in every Christian life when going through trials and tribulations, sorrow and snare.

“How can you say that?” you may ask.

Think about it.

When we are going through a job loss and we do not know where the money is going to come in to pay the bills and it seems as if God is no where to be seen. That is a good thing. It may not seem like it at the time but through this process you will: A: learn to pray sincerely and deeply like you never have before. In this process you draw closer to Jehovah, which is His purpose. And that is a good thing.

B: it will teach you to depend upon Him instead of yourself or your company or anything else that will fail you. And that is a good thing.

C: this will teach you to love, respect and adore our heavenly Father. And that is a good thing.

The same thing will occur in every avenue of your life if you are a Christian.

Through your hard times you will learn to depend upon Jehovahs unending resources, appreciate Him more and draw every deeper into a Divine loving relationship with Him.

And that is a good thing.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing me with Your divine wisdom, providence and assurance in every aspect of my life. The best part of this blessing is in developing an amazing loving relationship with you. I exalt You in the name of He whose sacrifice on the cross and resurrection made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Shall We not Accept Adversity?

I TRUST GOD

 Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” Job 2:10 Holy Bible, New King James Version                                                                                  Sorry to bust the bubble of those who believe Jesus is a genie who only live to give us our hearts desires but when you are a true Christian expect to experience a lot of adversity in your walk to Heaven.                                                                                                                                                                                                               “Persecution for righteousness’ sake is what every child of God must expect.” Charles Simeon That however is a blessing not a curse.                                                                                                                                                                                                                        You see in my life this is the pattern that has been with me since my walk to Heaven began: The closer you get to Jehovah the more satan is going to torment you and persecute you in the belief that you will be weak and the suffering too strong and give up your walk with Christ.                                                                                                      That is partly true.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 We are weaker than satan but nothing or no one is stronger that Christ. So when persecution and hard times come it drives a Christian to our knees in prayer to Christ. He will abundantly supply us with the power to overcome. That in turn creates a heart that overflows with love and respect for Jesus which draws us closer to Him.                                The closer we get to Christ the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                       When I was in Asia and informed Christians there that I was a Christian the first question they asked was:” How much have you suffered for Christ?”                            Returning to the west it is sad to say that the majority of so called Christians I have met are marshmallow Christians. They want the blessings of Christ but are not prepared to endure the sufferings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         “The early church was married to poverty, prisons and persecutions. Today, the church is married to prosperity, personality, and popularity Leonard Ravenhill                Although I do not enjoy the suffering I am eternally grateful for them because it is through them that I have been blessed with a close intimacy with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit that could not and would not have occurred any other way.                                                                                                                                                           Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your divine strength, comfort and peace during the times of satanic attack by his wicked disciples. I praise You in the name of He who defeated satan in the empty grave Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                                                                                                            May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Counsel and Understanding are His.

GODS ASSURANCE

 “To God belong wisdom and power;  counsel and understanding are his. Job 12:13 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go for counseling?

Some go to psychiatrists but they receive their flawed understanding from man. How many of them deal with your problems by pushing drugs on you?

I prefer to go to Jesus. The wonderful thing about Jesus is not only His infinite wisdom and power but because He suffered as we have He has been there and done it He understands everything we endure. Perhaps that is why He is called a wonderful councillor. Now He may guide you to qualified Christian counsellors or through His word and power along with His wisdom He may assist you on His own. I was blessed that He provided me with both.

Some go to these questionable counsellors you see on TV. But can they provide you with the wisdom and power that Christ can or do they go for TV ratings and your pocket book?

Some go to self help books but again, can they and do they give you individual counselling? Do they know you intimately like Jesus does? Do they love you like Jesus does? Can they bless you with power like Christ does?

Whenever I have a problem I always go to Jesus and He has a hundred per cent successes rate with me.

God delights to meet the faith of one who looks up to Him and says,“Lord, You know that I cannot do this—but I believe that You can!” –Amy Carmichael

How about you, where do you go for the best counselling?

Almighty God, who hast promised to hear the petitions of those who ask in thy Son’s Name: We beseech thee mercifully to incline thine ear to us who have now made our prayers and supplications unto thee; and grant that those things which we have asked faithfully according to thy will, may be obtained effectually, to the relief of our necessity, and to the setting forth of thy glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with lighting the way of life You have chosen for me to travel and for Your amazing wisdom and guidance to prudently resolve all the problems that darken my life. I extol Thee in the name of He whose light guides us to You and our Heavenly home 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.

He wants to play the judge.

 

Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! Genesis 19:9 New International Version

Have you ever gone to another country and when you tried to share Jesus they become violent and want to beat you or kill you?

I can think of a country where their excuse for rejecting Jesus is that it is a religion from the west. That of course, is just an excuse. Their real reason is that they are sinners and they know it. They enjoy walking in the darkness and are offended when the light comes to the.

ARROGANCE

People reject Christ for moral reasons not philosophical ones. They are sinners and they know it. Lance Havner

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to always share Your Holy word with others no matter the opposition to it. I sincerely request this in the name of He who proclaimed Your word in spite of intense resistance Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Attacks Will be on You

“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 ) King James Version
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). King James Version
I don’t know about you, but my worst tribulations came from those who were close to me before coming to Christ. They were the ones that constantly inflicted the most anguish and pain on me. So much so I had to move thousands of miles away from them. The pain I bore was almost unbearable and intense.
About a year later again someone close to me that was an unbeliever caused a lot of grief and tribulation in my life. That time it was not as severe though as I had the knowledge from the previous one and knew Jesus was with me every step of the way.
The closer you get to God, the more the attacks are going to be on you and the more severe they will be. Satan knows your weak points and that is where he will unmercifully attack you to destroy you.
Do not be afraid though. For we have the greatest champion in our corner who makes the devil scurry away like a freighted rat when a light is shone on them. His mighty name is JESUS CHRIST. He defeated satan on the cross and will defeat Him every time he attempts to destroy you.

CHRIST DEFEATS DEMONS

Oh for sure you will suffer. But, in the end that will make you stronger so you can withstand the vile wicked one when the next attack comes.

Do not get cocky though and believe you can take the devil on yourself. That is the sure fire way to humiliating defeat.

Instead know that when you are tortured or tempted to the breaking point that is when Jesus comes charging in like a raging fierce warrior to your rescue.

These attacks will occur throughout your entire life until you are called to your magnificent home in Heaven. Then you will realize all those battles were worth it.

Prayer: Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) thank you for coming to my rescue during the intense battles between satan and me. I know he is smarter than me and stronger. But, you are the smartest and strongest. You have promised to save me in my hour of need and I believe you always keep your word. In the name of our
great protector Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

He Himself Has Suffered.

For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted. Hebrews 2:18 New King James Version                 

When you are tempted no matter how big or small take it to Jesus.             

He himself has suffered temptation.                                                                 

Think about how hungry He must have felt after fasting that long yet He had the power to resist temptation. Although He was, is and always will be God immortal, He was also human so He understands your temptation.                                                                                                                  

Have you been betrayed by someone close to you and it cuts you close to the bone?

 He Himself has suffered betrayal.

Think of how Jesus felt when He was betrayed by both Judas and Peter? Think how much that must have pierced His loving heart?

Are you being mocked and deserted by family and friends since coming to Christ?

He Himself has suffered rejection.

Think how Jesus felt when His brothers mocked Him in front of crowds of other folks? Do you not believe that cut deep?

A CUTE LITTLE SNOWBALL

Has a loved one recently passed on to the other side?

He Himself has suffered loss.

Think of how Jesus felt when He saw all that sorrow and intense grief at Lazarus’ grave? Do you not think that weighed heavy on His heart?    Are wicked characters viciously gossiping about you, slandering you and unfairly criticizing you?

He Himself has suffered the venom of sneaky snakes. Think about how Jesus was constantly attacked, criticized and demonized by the Pharisee’s (who should have known better)?

Are you being treated unfairly for doing what is right?

He Himself has suffered injustice.

Think of how Jesus was brought unfairly to a kangaroo court that had already determined His death sentence before He even walked into the court room.

Think of how Jesus felt when He hung on that cross for all of us through out time?

You are afraid, think of how Jesus felt when in the garden before His trial, beating and excruciating death.

No matter what you are going through, you can always take it to Jesus because He has been there, He has been through it.

We can always take it all to Jesus, He has been there, He cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus-Shammah  (The Lord is Present) for blessing me with Your comforting,  strengthening assuring presence and for enduring all the pain that we experience so as to understand what we are going through. I exalt You in Your loving name. Amen.

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

Fight When Right

DO NOT BE AFRAID

Do you see an injustice? 

Than have confidence in God and stand up to them. 

I have many times. 

You know what; you might be surprised who will stand up with you. 

One time in a tree panting camp a foreman was treating rookies very bad. 

I stood up to him. 

This angered the camp supervisor and he arranged a little show down between his goons and me. 
I told them “You may beat me, but I will get back up, spit my blood in your face and kick your buts. When I am right I WILL FIGHT even unto my last breath.” 

I was prepared to receive a butt kicking. 

I heard a small voice saying: Don’t worry. I am sending you help.” I was expecting a legion of angels to come thundering out of the clouds. 

What I didn’t know was that when hearing this many of the other planters quietly moved behind me, a road crew repairing a damaged section of the Alaska Highway joined in. 

What started out as fifteen of them against me were now forty of them with me against fifteen of the camp supervisors goons. Now believe these boys were no angels. Ha ha but I believe God moved their hearts to step forward and risk an all out war. We would have all gotten fired as well. 

Needless to say the goons quickly backed down. I then TOLD the foreman and camp supervisor to get over here and apologize to these boys or I am coming over there and kick your butt. They had to humble themselves in front of the whole camp.

Later many people came over and mentioned how they admired that I stood up. My reply was that it is the duty of every Christian to stand up and fight for what is right. 

 “A man dies once, a coward dies many times.” Mexican proverb

And it is so true. Remember: it is our Christian duty to stand up and fight when we see an injustice. 

“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matt. 10:28 New International Version)

“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” Hebrews 4:12 (New American Standard Bible). 

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Nissi( the Lord is our banner, that means He goes out in front of us when we fight the right fight) I admit sometimes when I see an injustice I tremble in fear. Please give me a strong and courageous heart that has faith You will be right there with me, like David. A faith and ambition like Paul’s . In the name of the mighty warrior king Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

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