On the Alter Of

And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]Ephesians 4:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unfortunately, one of my bad dispositions is letting go of a grudge. Being more mature I have learned to place it at the feet of Jesus. He heals the wound and avenges the wrong doer.

Many times however, it is played out in my head where they are shamed while yours truly look like the hero. This childish fantasy is surely played out in all of our heads. Rather than dwell on the wound others have inflicted from personal experience, it is better to listen to old hymns that praise Jehovah. This fills the heart with joy rather than anger and bitterness.

Now of course the wound may need to be healed by going to righteous Christian councilors to help deal with the lingering pain.

Those that nurture the grudge are cultivating weeds of hate and anger which suffocate the beautiful plants of love and joy. They become mean, bitter angry old men and women in their later years.

Of course this devastating disease cause great harm to both the mental and physical body.

It also affects the relationship with Christ. Because He is love and there is hate and anger in the heart the two are not comparable.

I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: PleaseYAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal the cuts both superficial and the gougingly deep ones that have been inflicted upon me.

Please empower me to concentrate on all Your loving attributes instead of foolishly wasting my time rerunning the event over in my head where I glorify myself while shaming the offender. That is such a wast of time and is very childish.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Our Perfect Healing

                                          

 In the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all have our aches and pains both mentally and physically. Usually there is no cure for them. We must just suffer through them in this life. And, the older you get the more aches and pains you experience.

But we who belong unto Jehovah can be cemented in the fact that all those aches and pains shall dissipate when we are blessed to be in our Heavenly home. It is the anchor of our live when we are suffering from our ailments.

To the world, this mentality is foolishness but to the wise it is a fact.

Our perfect healing occurs in Heaven. The pain on earth makes us appreciate the great Healer all the more. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer) for being the supreme healer that shall truly mend all my physical and mental ailments for which only Your loving ministering touch my body and spirit can recuperate from the deep mental and spiritual wounds and heal my physical weaknesses.

I exalt The in the name of the ultimate Healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In the Quiet Moments

                                                        

The Lord is near to the heartbroken Psalm 34:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I cannot count the number of times worry, sorrow, frustration and anger were so deep with in my soul it felt like a blanket of heavy steel completely encompassing my whole being. Jehovah always led me to a quiet place and there He comforted me, encouraged me and strengthened me.

So many folks laughed and wrote me off thinking I was totally demolished and a failure. The shock to them when they saw me return and go right back at it with gusto was quite humorous.

Sometimes this process was repeated numerous times but there was always victory in the end.

It does not matter what your situation in life there are always times when we need to be alone with our Beloved for Him to care for us both mentally, spiritually and physically.

“Be still, and in the quiet moments, listen to the voice of your heavenly Father. His words can renew your spirit. No one knows you and your needs like He does.” Janet L. Weaver

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer) for blessing me with Your gentle loving reassurance, strength and comfort in my numerous times of need. I love You and adore Your for Your abundant grace You have bestowed upon this adoring child of Your. I exalt Thee in the name of the best Healer of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Greatest of Virtues

                                                        

For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced (beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The greatest of blessings is to be loved by He who cares about us and for us like no one else can or will. He is always there. He always cares. He always blesses us with the best guidance. He blesses us with daily spiritual, mental and physical blessings. And best of all there is no experience like that of being in communion with His loving presence. Romans 8:38-39The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no love that can compare to Jehovahs Divine love for us. It is truly a Heavenly treasure of which we are to be grateful for in our daily lives and will continuously praise Him for in His Heavenly home. It is my spiritual breath. I cannot go a day without praising Him with whom loves me untold more than I could ever reciprocate. He is truly awesome.

And Jesus replied to him,“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is nothing or no one worthy of equaling much less surpassing Jehovahs place in my heart.

As Christ is our King that makes us He free will servants.

I can find no vocation equal to worth nor value as that of serving my Heavenly King in whom I am so deeply in love with.

There is nothing more worthy of my time that contemplating Jehovah by reading books, listening to the old hymns, writing articles to assist others in there walk with Him and creating engaging photo’s to glorify Him.

“To love God is the greatest of virtues; to be loved by God is the greatest of blessings.” Portuguese Proverb

Virtue is described as a commendable quality or trait Is there anything more commendable than loving He whose love for us surpasses anything else?

Prayer; Oh glory, glory excelsis unto You my most reverent loving Father in Heaven for double blessing me. The first blessing is Your supreme infinite love for me which is my greatest treasure. The second blessing is the privilege of loving the most majestic loving Father there could ever be. In the name of Your lost loving son Jesus Christ I do respectfully praise You. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Trust without Reservations.

                                                   

The righteous will live by his faith [in the true God]. Habakkuk 2:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The majority of the Christian walk is by faith. Jehovah starts out with little faith lessons to teach us to have faith in Him. As we progress in our walk with Him He presents us with larger and larger lessons in faith. We eventually reach a state where there is complete trust in Him in every aspect of our lives.

He will not give us everything we request and we may not know the reason why until we get to Heaven but we have faith that it is for our best interest because He loves us.

On the other hand it may not be revealed to us until decades later why our request was denied.

There have been many examples why He did not grant me my request that in retrospect now I praise Him for not giving me my desires because I can see how they would have led to total disaster.

“Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservations.” — Elton Trueblood

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me that You walk with me every day. Thank you for blessing me with the fulfillment of my respectful humble requests unto You so long as they are not detrimental to my physical, spiritual and or mental health. Thank you for not granting me my please when they are destructive to me or those around me. Many times I do not understand why You refuse to grant my request but have faith that it is done because You are an all loving, all wise Father that only does what is best for His cherished child. I give glory to You in the name of He who is the best fulfilled desire for the best big brother in Your holy family Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Let a Man Meet A.

Let a man meet a[ferocious] bear robbed of her cubs Rather than the [angry, narcissistic] fool in his folly. Proverbs 17:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                           

Folly is described as: the state or quality of being foolish; lack of understanding or sense, a foolish action, practice and a costly and foolish undertaking. Another word for foolish is stupid.

A narcissist is described as  tending to derive gratification from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes.

Speaking from personal experience a narcissist does not love anybody or anything as much as they love themselves. They are always bragging about themselves and thrive on being the constant center of attention. They are very shallow and easily offended. When offended they become very cruel and constantly imagine the wicked manner in which the offender will pay with shame and humiliation. They take it to the extreme.

Beware of them.

Yes they can be dangerous, although most times they are not.

They have no sympathy for their victims and delight in watching them suffer. Whenever I encounter one and they share with me their wicked schemes I merely point out to them the folly of it in the consequences they will suffer far outweigh the satisfaction they will receive and I will have no part of it.

If I am the one they intend upon inflicting with their foolish perverted revenge I explain to them  with confidence and strength that there is a God in Heaven and He passes sentence that the wicked shall be punished seven times seven for their wickedness.

It shocks them. It is a coin toss how they will react.

Sometimes they will stay away in fear and sometimes they foolishly pursue their evil schemes. Yes sometimes they succeed but in the end it costs them far more than they gain when they suffer Jehovahs harsh mighty hand of justice.

Narcissist’s pretend to be strong but really are weak, stand up to them or they will bully you.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to be by your side and no narcissist can stand up to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi  (The Lord is my Refuge) for blessing me with the refuge of Your words and guidance to deal properly with all the narcissist’s that enter my life. I exalt You in the name of He who dealt harshest of all with these plagues upon society Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Christian Creed P L O

                                     

 “You will pray to Him, and He will hear you, And you will pay your vows. Job 22:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Why do you ask if you do not desire to obey?

So many folks turn to Jehovah to solve their problems. They want Him to tell them what they want to hear, not what they need to hear.

So we will say someone is asking Jehovah for help with their finances and He informs them to stop wasting money buying expensive coffee in coffee shops and they will not only have enough money to pay their bills but will also be able to save some as well. They ignore His advice and then cry because they cannot pay their bills and ask why He has not helped them.

It is plain stupidity.

If you really wish for Jehovah to help in your life you must alter it in the manner in which He guides you or your are wasting your time as well as His.

“We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another.” — William Law

Pray We must pray for wisdom in regards to our problem

Listen We must listen to His voice

Obey We must have faith in Him and obey His guidance, even when it does not agree with what our desires are or if it does not make sense to us. Following this method has greatly improved my life in every aspect, mental, physical and spiritual. It will yours as well. I do not promise Jehovah does and He has 100 % success rate.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the wonderful privileged of obeying my Kings instructions because I know You love me and only want the best for me. I exalt You in Your magnificent name. Amen.

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

Than You Thought.

                                      

For You meet him with blessings of good things. Psalm 21:3 Holy Bible New King James Version

There is an ad on TV that says:” You are richer that you thought.”

Truer words have never been said.

Every day make a list of all the blessings

Jehovah has blessed you with both big and small. Reflect on them at the end of the day and thank Jehovah for them (thank Him as He blesses us through out the day as well). It is a great way to get to sleep. At the end of the month read your listings and you will be surprised at just how wealthy you are.

One of the by products of this is just how much more of a positive attitude you have and how diminished your problems have become and how little of a Negative Nellie you are and how much of a Positive Pete you are.

“The poor man thought, “If I had a penny for every time I knew the Lord blessed me I would be a millionaire.” Then he continued, “But if I had a penny for evertime the Lord actually blessed me, I would be the richest man in the world…and I believe I already am.”” — Bob Smith

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for abundantly supplying all my daily needs both spiritual and physical. I praise You in the name of my Savior whom I need so very much Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They are Still Alive.

In Hades (the realm of the dead), being in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom (paradise). Luke 16:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In all of Jesus’ parables He always explained what they meant but here we do not see any explanation. That is because in the Old Testament it was explained numerous times the life after death . That there is a place where the spirit goes after death. It is not Heaven or Hell but a place where the spirit awaits final judgment. Therefore those that have died, they are still alive in spirit. The Jews knew this so there was no need for Jesus to explain it to them.

This also shows the charlatans that claim they can talk with the dead.

Jehovah places them in that place where they shall remain until the Day of Judgment.

There is no communion with the dead with the living.

It also shows how those that claim that all those who die go to a pleasant place after death. They claim there is no punishment for the wicked ones deeds in his life on earth.

When we die there is still a continuing of life in the spirit. One is a place of pleasant experience, the other other one of torment.

The question is which place are you going to spend time in until the final judgment.

Then Abraham breathed his last and he died at a good old age, an old man who was satisfied [with life]; and he was gathered to his people [who had preceded him in death]. Genesis 25:8Holy Bible Amplified Version

This states that Abraham went to his people. How could he go there if there is no living spirits to go to?

“Oh, that You would hide me in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead) Job 14:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

To the people of the Old Testament Sheol is a place where the spirit goes which means that death does not terminate human existence.

So yes brothers and sisters, your loved ones, they are still alive, not physically but spiritually. No we cannot talk with them nor they with us.

If they died in Christ that should fill us with joy because we will see them in Heaven when we get there and we shall know them and they shall know us. Think of someone dear to you that has gone on a journey and has been gone for a year or more. Think of how your heart dances for joy when they come home and you have not seen them for a long time. That is what it will be like when we are reunited with them in Heaven.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless me with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and strength to educate others that there is eternal damnation for those who reject you. On the other hand I daily eagerly anticipate dwelling in Your house for eternity and being in Your loving presence of infinity. I humbly ask this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Champion Worry Wort.

 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I used to be the World Champion Worry Wort. You name it and I would worry about it. I swear I used to worry about if I did not fart during the day (really). It caused endless sleepless nights. It is surprising I did not have ulcers or a heart attack. The stress meter would be on overload.

As my walk with Christ slowly matured more and more was put into His capable hands, starting off small and gradually enlarging as the walk with Him became more and more secure more and more was surrendered to Him. The end result was a good nights sleep ( which is enjoyed almost every night now).

There is more and more serenity in uncertain circumstances.

There now is amazing physical, mental and spiritual health.

Now there are times when there are uncertain circumstances and or situations that arise that is completely out of my control and a panic attack begins. That is when I sprint for a Bible, a quiet place to be with my Beloved and allow Him to comfort and assure me that every thing is under control. The stress meter goes dead and the worry melts away.

“Never dwell on the tomorrow; remember, that it’s God’s and not ours.” Edward B. Pusey

Prayer: Oh a deep heartfelt Thank you my cherished Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace in every aspect of my life because I know You love me, You care, You help me and guide my steps. You are always there through all my difficulties and sorrows. You are the greatest. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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