He Washes Them Away.

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]. John 14:27 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever sat by the shore of a lake or ocean?

I like to sit there and relax. As the waves go out they grab my anger, fear, frustration, worry and sorrow and carry them away. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He washes them away. As the waves come in they fill me with peace. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He fills me with His divine peace love and joy.

Now, we do not need an ocean or lake to experience this blessing but it is experienced its most effective in nature. Try sitting by a small creek with little rapids or a quite forest or a quiet meadow.

Here is the formula I use: first I close my eyes and bawl my eyes out unto my Heavenly Father what ever the problem is. Then I sit there quietly while He blesses me with enveloping me in His loving, comforting arms. Once He has filled me with His Divine peace I slowly open my eyes and He reveals all the beauty around me He has created. Every time there is an over whelming feeling of love, joy, peace and awe. I fill at one with my Beloved and cannot but help shout out “ I love You oh Holy Father, I love You.” It is truly the most amazing experience I have ever been blessed with.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for Your blessings of bountiful peace during the storms that crash around me and the fires that surround me through out my walk with You. I magnify You in the name of the Price of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Set Aside Self-Righteous Pride.

fruit-of-the-spirit

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever been in the company of the : I did” s You know the type, they cannot say a complete sentence without saying: “ I did this.” or : : I did that. “. To me I find it an extremely annoying experience and want to tell them : “ You are not the only person in the world you know.” Some times I do. You should see the look of indignation on their faces.

On the other hand I just go about serving the Lord quietly. Yes, He has taken me many incredible places and accomplished amazing things through me. Some times during a conversation these experiences will be shared with others. They look at me in amazement and comment that I have lived an incredible life. To me there is nothing incredible about it but I give Jehovah the glory because with out Him nothing would have been accomplished. Folks are always asking me to share these experiences with them because they find them so fascinating and interesting.

The good part though is that through sharing these experiences with them it encourages them and strengthens them through their hard times to go to Jehovah.

As well, it helps some of them to see just what Jehovah can do in their lives when they surrender to Him and place their faith in Him.

Give credit for your accomplishments where it belongs, to Jehovah, not you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your overflowing  benevolence of opportunities to exhibit the awesome possibilities Your provide to those with an obedient heart unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who accomplished amazing feats because He walked in honour and obedience unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am Afraid and Pray.

when-i-pray

 ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ ”Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This one has taken me decades to have faith in. I believe in our early walk with Christ we all have doubts about the validity of His word. Do not be ashamed. Read your Bible. How long did it take Moses. Abraham and Jacob to be blessed with absolute faith in our Heavenly Beloved? Decades.

Now, when there is circumstances beyond my control that look like they are heading for certain disaster, I am afraid and pray.

Jehovah comforts and reassures me. He walks with me through them.

Sometimes they are averted by Divine will.

Sometimes I must walk through them, with the Holy Spirit by my side, because Jehovah is teaching me something through this experience.

Now, when the wicked ones scheme and plot against me I am afraid and pray.

Again, Jehovah comforts and reassures me. I am filled with Divine peace and strength to face them. In the moment of confrontation the Holy Spirit fills me with His infinite wisdom and the wicked ones go down in flames. They are infuriated and confused where I gained the wisdom and strength. Jehovah laughs at them.

It is natural to be afraid when these and other circumstances occur in our lives.

The best Christian defense is to pray, wait and obey and grow in faith. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for walking with me through my troubles, snares and sorrows whenever I humbly cry out to You. Thank you in the name of He who is my best friend that is always there for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They Lose More than They Gain

SCAMMERS PAY

But they lie in wait for their own blood, They lurk secretly for their own lives. So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners. Proverbs 1:18-19 New King James Version

As I grow older the more I see the righteous hand of Jehovah in the wicked ones lives. When they are young they laugh and believe they are getting away with scamming others. They become bitter, lonely and poor financially. Many in their old age cry and beg to die to end their pain but they must live on in a daily life of living hell. In life, they lose more than they gain. Go to a seniors home and watch those who have no visitors ( now some times they are far from family and friends so they miss them), ask those who knew them in their younger age and you will find they were scammers, deceivers and manipulators who cared about nothing and no one but themselves. Now in their final years that is all they have, themselves. In life, they lose more than they gain.

As well, I have seen those whose only goal in life is to get the most toys. They will lie, cheat and steal to get what they want. At some time they realize that those toys cannot love them in return and they have wasted their lives on what is actually very frivolous. In life, they lose more than they gain.

The problem is that the heart of the greedy and Hell have this in common: they always scream”I want more, more, more, they are never satisfied.” Joseph- Anthony:Green

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-Naheh (the Lord who Smites) for delivering true justice to the wicked ones for their evil ways. I humbly exalt You in the name of he who defeats all evil Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Serve One or the Other.

chief-duty

Serve the Lord with gladness and delight; Come before His presence with joyful singing. Psalm 100:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In life we all have a choice of who we will serve. We cannot serve them both. We will serve one or the other.

The second one is serving ourselves. We come above all others and all else.

Now some may say I do a lot of community work, how can that be serving myself?

Yes, but, why are you serving the community or is it to serve the community or is it to puff up your ego?

The sad thing is that those who are selfish and self serving (greedy) are the loneliest creatures I have ever met. Oh, they may have a lot of money, prestige, fame and toys but they have no one to love and to be loved by. They usually take comfort in a bottle or pills.

The number on choice is to serve the Lord.

Everything we do whether great or small that is dedicated unto Him is cherished by Him.

There is no small act of dedication unto Jehovah that is not great in Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We are to serve out of duty not obligation.

Duty is an act of love, obligation is a transaction of goods.

So those religions that falsely teach that good works will gain you entry into Shangrala are only deceiving you. When you receive your rewards here, you have completed the transaction of goods.

When we serve out of duty unto Jehovah it is done as an act of love. After all that is what it is all about. Being blessed with a loving relationship with Him and when you love someone you enjoy making them happy which is what duty is. The bonus we receive is a heavenly home where we will enjoy an eternal loving intimate relationship with our Divine Father.

Do you seek any further reward beyond that of having pleased God? In truth, you know not how great a good it is to please Him. –St. John Chrysostom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with many opportunities to preform my duty unto You by serving others. I exalt You in the name of He who served us on with the ultimate service on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Focus to See the Light.

weary

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer from trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference between the ones walking in darkness and those of us that are walking in the light is that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, cares for us and about us.

We have a choice. We can carry the world on our shoulders, or we can say, “I give up, Lord; here’s my life. I give you my world, the whole world.” –Bruce Larson

They have no one that has the perfect healing touch. Jesus loves you.

Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we suffer the loss of a loved one we can always take our pain and sadness to Jesus. Do not forget how he weeped at His friends grave.

When we have lost our homes do not forget that Jesus was homeless.

When we are sick do not forget the sick Jesus healed.

When we have been betrayed do not forget how one of His own disciples betrayed Him. When our family and or friends reject us because of our walk towards our heavenly home do not forget how Jesus’ own family rejected and bitterly mocked Him.

When we suffer from exhaustion do not forget how exhausted Jesus was from his preaching and healing.

When we are facing death from a slow disease killer do not forget how Jesus knew about the type of death He must suffer.

Because Jesus walked amongst us He has experienced everything we have and so much more.

Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. —George Müller

So when we are experiencing our difficulties remember to focus on He who is the light of the world. He will comfort you, heal you, encourage you and walk with you through it all because He loves you.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. –Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my world with Your Divine love, assurance, comfort and strength in my darkest moments. I praise You for this blessing in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which Destination do You Chose?

Christ, WILL LEAD

 

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible New International Version.

We all have a predestination but must chose which one we will accept.

There are those who refuse to accept Christ as their Savior. To them their predestination is Hell. That is their choice.

There are the wise who accept Christ as their savior.

Now once we have accepted Christ He has predestined works for us to do. If we refuse to do these works He will punish us, if with nothing else than the refusal to bless us.

Think of a child who is informed that if they keep their room clean they will get an allowance on Friday. It has been predestined that doing their assigned work will be rewarded on a certain day.

When Christ assigns us work our predestined reward may be here and now but definitely will be in Heaven.

When driving down the road we see speed signs. If we go over the limit we get a ticket. That does not mean we cannot drive anymore.

So too it is when we refuse to obey Jehovah’s commands.

He will punish us but that does not mean we will lose our salvation.

If, however, we continue to live in disobedience unto Him, THEN, yes, you will lose your salvation be dammed to eternal Hell.

So my question to you is: which predestination have you chosen?

Prayer: Jehovah Hashanah (Jehovah our maker), thank you for the predestined path You have chosen for my life. Please help me to always stay on Your straight and narrow road. I modestly ask for this blessing in the name of He who is our great Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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