I am Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Known by His Deeds.  

Even a child is known by his deeds, Whether what he does is pure and right. Proverbs 20:11 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

When I was a teacher sometimes the children would misbehave. When I went to punish them they pleaded not to be punished and promised not to be naughty again. I agreed not to punish them if they would behave. Not even five minutes later they would be little monsters again. When I reminded them of their promise they laughed in my face and refused to acknowledge their promise. That is when the hammer came down and they received worse punishment. That quickly put a permanent end to that unacceptable behavior.

They knew what they were doing was wrong.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

I see it so often today when children are delinquent and the liberal judges let them off. This is wrong. Let the punishment fit the crime otherwise they just get worse.

You can bet with the teenagers when they are terrible you can trace it back to their childhood and lack of discipline in the family and in the schools. Then when they become adults they foolishly believe they can do what ever they want and there is no retribution for their behavior.

Most times they are disrespectful on their own initiatives.

Do not tell me it is not their fault it is societies fault, I did not make them do it. Do not tell me it is because they are poor, some of the most respectful folks I have ever met were dirt poor, do not tell me it is the families fault, I have met many respectful families whose children are little monsters and a heavy burden on the parents.

It does not matter how good or bad parents raise their children it is the childrens choices in their lives and the decisions they make will come back to either bless them or curse them. Joseph a son of Jehovah           

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) bless me to wisely teach the youth of today wisdom, integrity and righteous morals so as to avoid Your terrible judgement. I sincerely request 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.

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.

He Has Told You.

 He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion), And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]? Micah 6:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no excuse.

An excuse is a skin of a reason wrapped up in a lie. A.W. Tozer

Jehovah has told you and you are to obey.

We are to be just. That means there is no discrimination towards those of a different colour, nationality, sex or income than what we have. There is the original equality law for you. We are to be loving.

That means not just helping other but correcting them when they are wrong ( which the satanic liberally wrong).

That does not mean a feel good event like donating to the food bank at Christmas but making a commitment to help those in poverty get out of it.

It means we are to have compassion on the disadvantaged like seniors and the disabled. We are to help them with our fellowship and encouragement.

That means we are not to be annoying, self centered twits that believes the whole world revolves around us but are to be respectful and courteous to both Jehovah and to those around us.

Now we all need His guidance and strength to accomplish this every day. That is why we need to ask for and obey the Holy Spirits wisdom which He freely and generously gives to all who asks with humbleness and sincerity.

Prayer: Please Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless this humble servant of Your with an obedient heart in my service unto You my cherished King. I sincerely request this in You magnanimous name. Amen.

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

One of the Most Harmful Habits.

 

 

 “There can be no doubt that possessive clinging to things is one of the most harmful habits in the Christian life. Because it is so natural, it is rarely recognized for the evil that it is. But its outworkings are tragic.” A. W. Tozer

At one time I worked a lot of overtime and invested my money according to the advice of financial planners (Be careful of them. They are not all good as I sadly found out). I lived a very frugal lifestyle just to save up for a comfortable early retirement. Alls I lived for was to stash money away to make that baby grow. Sadly events occurred that wiped me out not once but three times. I felt totally devastated and if the world had literally ended. Each time I wanted to give up but went right back to it again. During this time my Bible gathered dust and the only time I talked with my beloved was when I wanted something from Him. Our relationship was on life support. When things crashed I went to Him but when the new nest egg stared growing I deserted Him for the nest egg. What a pitiful life it was. It was one of the most harmful habits that could exist in anyones life.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matthew 6:33 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Finally, when I had nothing left I surrendered unto the Holy Spirit. Through decades (talk about a slow learned huh) He taught me to be submissive and obedient unto Jehovah’s calling in my life. Yes it has been hard but that was a blessing because it has brought us ever closer together. The harder the times the closer it brings me to Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green I have a deep respect, love and admiration for my Beloved Father, King and Holy Teacher. This is the greatest treasure of all. Through it all He has always provided fro my needs (not wants which is fleshly).

“I will place no value on anything I have or may possess, except in relation to the kingdom of Christ.” David Livingstone  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your daily provision which You graciously bless me with. I thank You in the name of He whose cherished sacrifice made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Will Not be Blessed

An inheritance claimed too soon will not be blessed at the end. Proverbs 20:21 New International Version

It is very common today for children to want their inheritance be given to them even though their parents are still alive. It is because they have foolishly gone in debt over their heads and expect their parents to pay for their extravagant lifestyle and bail them out.

POVERTY

That is like saying you wish your parents were dead.

That is a cursed thing in the eyes of Jehovah.

The children who do attain their inheritance do not curtail their unwise lifestyle but continue on falsely believing mommy and daddy will be there to bail them out again.

When mommy and daddy die and there is no money left in their inheritance to support their luxurious lifestyle and they lose everything. I can see great suffering coming soon to todays youth.

When the well runs dry oh how terrible the consequences will be for those living off of others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Naheh (the Lord who Smites) convict the wicked, selfish, self centered ones and move them to repent. Teach them to show proper respect and give loving care to their aged parents. Speak into the hearts of the parents to appreciate the loving care and sacrifice their children are giving towards them. I humbly ask this in the name of the son who cared for His mother while suffering an agonizing death Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Enjoy Your Feast Now You Filthy Pigs.

SCAMMERS PAY

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a  witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. James 5:1-4 King James Version

Unfortunately in todays world we too much of workers being paid sub standard wages and getting cheated out of them. Those higher up get away with exorbitant compensation packages even if they run the company into the ground. This is true for both the government and private sector. Enjoy your feast now you filthy pigs. Oh you laugh and foolishly believe you are getting away with it but your day is coming and when it does oh woe to you. I recently read an article where in the seventies the difference between the lowest paid work and the executives was 100% and now it is 1,000% How can they sleep at night is beyond me. Then there are the war pigs who go and start wars in other countries to keep the war machine pumping out money into their pockets. This is done not only at the expense of the invaded country but of the citizens living where the war pigs live (yes this is you Bushes and Reagan’s in the United States. How many of your youths blood do you have on your hands?). I do earnestly pray that Peters vision of Hell is true just to know true justice is done to these horrid creatures and the others that feed off of them. To me this is a sure sign we are closer than ever to the rapture.

When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” Revelation 6:5-6 King James Version                                      

A denarius was a days wages, barley is what the poor people ate and three quarts was enough to live off of for a day. Only the rich could afford olive oil (and they cheated folks out of their land to grow huge olive groves which they got filthy rich from. The same was true for wine).

How many family farms do we see today?

How many people all around the world are living paycheck to paycheck?

How many rich people have more money per year than many countries GDP?

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is the supreme Judge) speak into the hearts of the wicked rich ones and move them to do what is right and pay decent livable wages and to be honest so as to avoid facing Your terrible wrath on the day of judgment. I humbly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

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