Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Do Not be a Windbag.

no-sword-words

 Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2 New King James Version Holy Bible

Have you ever met a wind bag?

They are the type of folks that just never shut up. They are usually arrogant and very opinionated as well. They are also the type to offer an opinion on a matter with very little knowledge of the topic. As a consequence they suffer a lot of foot in mouth disease. They are always putting their foot in their big mouth. Then when they look like fools and they become indignant when proven wrong.

Do not be a wind bag.

Those who talk much say little, those who talk little say much. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Have you ever met the quiet type? They hardly ever speak but when they do they are very wise in their opinion.

You enjoy listening to them and learn a lot from them. They are the type to listen and ask questions before offering their wise opinion.

Have big ears and a little mouth. It will keep you out of a lot of trouble. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Have you ever met the type who nonchalantly say:”So help me God.” They foolishly fail to realize they are taking an oath before Jehovah and He will hold them to account.

 I just inform those in the conversation that what I am saying is true to the best of my knowledge and am will to listen to opposing point of view based upon facts not feelings.

Prayer: Please bless me Jehovah KalEl ( voice of God ) to constantly guide me thought, words and actions to reflect Your Holy manner of conversation and to take seriously my oaths. I humbly ask this in the name of he whose speech was always true and respectful Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are you his sword?

josephs-quotes-fault-finders

 

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 New Living Translation

Whether it is with a Christian or non Christian, when you are being pompously judgmental with others what opinion will others have of Christ when you claim to be a Christian?

Is Satan laughing while your words pierce the hearts of others?

Could this attitude drive people away from Christ rather than too Him?

Are you being a sword of Satan and driving through the receptive hearts of others?

When I was a teacher I would encourage students to come to church with me. Every Sunday it was the same filth of Satans followers pretending to be Christians with their arrogant self righteous behavior that would spew forth their poison (and most of them were elders in the congregation) . When my students saw this they refused to ever go to church again. Many refused to even discuss Jesus. They would say: “Jesus is supposed to be love, teacher that was anything but love.”

Whether you want to accept it or not, your words and deeds reflect Jesus when you claim to be one of His servants.

Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. Galatians 5:26 New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) guide my words to be encouraging and healing so that they will bring praise and glory to Your loving name. In the name of the greatest orator Jesus Christ I humbly ask. Amen.

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

How Long Will

cannot-outrun

“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning (discerning: able to see and understand people, things, or situations clearly and intelligently Miriam- Webster Dictionary)?
How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,
How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge? Proverbs 1:22 Amplified Bible

Does this not sound like society today?

How many folks listen to politicians during a campaign and never question them?

Then when they get elected do what ever they want and get away with their lies.

How many folks believe what they hear the salesmen tell them without demanding they put it in writing and then end up being made a sucker out of?

When you try to speak of morals or integrity in someones life they mock you and try to drown out the truth by yelling at you. They hate you for telling the truth. They label you as intolerant and old fashioned. I see it and experience it almost every day.

Todays motto is :”Tell me what I want to hear, not what I need to hear.” Joseph- Anthony: Green

For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to support the errors they hold. 2 Timothy 4:3 Amplified Bible

Does that not just describe the “politically correct of today? When you reject Biblical truth you are calling Jehovah a liar and severely offending Him.

“Our society strives to avoid any possibility of offending anyone – except God.” Billy Graham

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and humbleness to always speak Your divine word of truth which is the torch that pierces light into a dark world. I humbly ask this in the name of He who is the light of the Heavenly world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They No Longer Teach the Truth.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men. Mark 7:6-8 New King James Version Holy Bible

From my personal experience I believe this is too prevalent in todays churches. They teach the doctrine of man which is mainly teaching the folks what they want to hear not what they need to hear. As well it is contrary to Biblical teaching. They no longer teach the truth.

The Bible is the word of God, anything that is contrary to that is satanic. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Sorry you misguided souls but homosexuality is still filthy in Jehovahs eyes no matter what lies you teach.

Sorry folks but Jehovah is not there just to serve your every whim like ungrateful brats.

Sorry folks but you cannot just go out and live your life how ever you want and still be accepted by Jehovah. Just as Jehovah is spirit so too is worshipping Him in spirit (with your heart not your mouth) the only worship that is acceptable unto Him.

Sorry folks but there is a eternal damnation in hell so you cannot go out and live your life contrary to Biblical teachings and expect to get a free pass into Heaven because “Jesus loves you.”

I believe this is why so many churches are dead and dying a slow death, because their false doctrine is no different from the worlds. I have been in worldly churches that were almost empty and in churches that taught Biblical doctrine that were full and alive.

Prayer:Please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light)bless both individual Christians and churches today to teach and live by sound Biblical doctrine that will be the light that shines in a dark cold world so that others will be blessed with and amazing loving relationship with You. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cleavet: I recently read an article that churches that teach Biblical doctrine numbers are increasing while the politically correct churches enrollment is declining.

He Chased Me Out.

 

 

HONESTY

 And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge. Exodus 31:3 New King James Version

They began doing construction work in the apartment above where I live in with jackhammers and sledge hammers going all day. This of course means it is impossible to do any writing. I researched on the internet where there is a library nearby. The one found is modern and quiet (for China, these are the noisiest people I have ever met) and there outlets to plug in your computer to work in an air conditioned building. Considering that it gets to a hundred and ten in the apartment with no air conditioning during most of the year this was a blessing

On the first day there while taking a break I felt the Lord moving me to go for a walk on the library grounds. During this walk I was led to a walkway from the library to close to the apartment. This was a blessing because it meant that I did not have to suffer the cattle car experience of the subway every morning nor have to spend money on subway fare. As well, as it takes about an hour to walk there from the apartment it is good exercise and being outside.

When Chinese see a foreigner they always want to trick them into giving them free English lessons. While meditating on this problem the Lord reminded me of a sermon I heard some time in the past. It was how the early Christians were known as the people of The Way. The Way of course being that Jesus is the way.

So if the Chinese try their conniving, I merely instruct them that I am a teacher of The Way” and ask them if they are interested in learning about Christ. If they say no then I ask them why they are bothering me (You have to be blunt otherwise they will not leave you alone until they get what they want). If they say they are (many Chinese will lie and pretend to be interested just to get free English lessons) then they will pay for the class before the class begins (Chinese will say that they will pay and then at the end of the class not pay. I have ten years experience with these creatures and have learned my lessons the hard way. ) to prove their sincerity and yes it does say in the Bible that teachers are to be paid.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with a heart, mind and body that is always totally obedient to You in every aspect of my life. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us by example what true obedience is Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Editors note- this was written in my final days of living in China.
