I would Not Look at You.

 Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel]. 2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes it is because of the righteous that the wicked are not punished (at that moment) but they will be punished in Jehovah’s way and in Him time.

Notice that it is because the king of Judah was an obedient servant of Jehovah that the Holy man spoke.

Many times the wicked will receive guidance from the righteous because of their association with a righteous man or woman. They come for advice because of what they want to hear not what they need to hear. When what they need to hear is told to them they hate the messenger and will stubbornly refuse the Godly advice given unto them. The whole meeting is a waste of their time and the man or woman of Gods time. Because they refuse to listen to the Godly advice they meet their doom.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with softly speaking to my heart not to waste my times with the wicked ones who blatantly reject you and walk in the path of wickedness. It saves me so much frustration and sorrow. I extol Thee in the name of He who walks away from those who refuse to open the door of their hearts when He comes a knocking Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Their Filthy Wickedness.

 When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Are you the one who is bringing disaster on Israel?” 1 Kings 18:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The nation of Israel was being punished for their wicked rebellion against Jehovah. When one of His prophets told the folks of their Divine punishment for their filthy wickedness and then when it occurred everyone blamed Elijah instead of being mature enough to admit their sins and too arrogant to repent of them.

In case you think that was just something that was done in the olden times you are sorely mistaken. Many times I have been accused of asking Jehovah to physically condemn those that are willingly walking in wickedness as if He will do my every bidding. When I try to explain to them that they have caused this upon their own heads, they steadfastly refuse to even acknowledge their sin much less take responsibility for it.

It is easier or the wicked to accuse the righteous for their downfall than to be mature enough, humble enough and sorrowful enough to admit their filth. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) that true justice is done at Your Divine hands upon the wicked and for blessing me with the wisdom not to take it to heart when the wicked blame me for punishment when it comes. I exalt You in the name of the ultimate Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Reliable and Trustworthy.

 

The law of the Lord is perfect (flawless), restoring and refreshing the soul; The statutes of the Lord are reliable and trustworthy, making wise the simple. Psalm 19:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In mans laws there is so many escape clauses for the wicked. Everyone is equal under Gods Law. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Sadly we see all too frequently that there seems to be one law for the rich and one law for everybody else. We see too much of liberals allowing criminals to go free in society to habitually continue there evil ways. It angers us and breaks our hearts.

In Jehovahs Law there is no escape clauses and those that break His law face His divine punishment. There is no plea bargaining nor parole.

Oh we are forgiven when we repent but must still face the punishment. It is fair and just. That restores our faith in true justice and refreshes our spirits.

Do not think that His justice will be done right away.

Sometimes it takes decades.

I have seen it in the lives of many and their pitiful existence in their own damnation. It breaks the heart to see them suffer but also faith that justice is being served.

The precepts of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. Psalm 19:7,8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Obeying Jehovahs Law brings peace, love and joy to the heart. Obeying your own law only brings misery, agony and war to the heart. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We receive more enlightenment of Jehovahs Law the more we obey Him. It brings joy to our hearts because we see a loving Father that only wants what is best for us. Many times we are selfish but when we are obedient unto His laws we see the destructive lifestyle we avoid when going down that destructive path. We see that His way is the only way.

A knowledge of the Bible without a college education is more valuable than a college education without the Bible.” Professor William Lyon Phelps

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with a Divine education in Your Holy School of Righteousness. Thank you with blessing me with the strength to implement Your teachings into my daily life. It has prevented much hardship and sorrow. I exalt Thee in the King of Righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Grace is When

 Growing in grace they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age. Psalm 92:14 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Grace is not something we are born with. When someone does us wrong the natural inclination is to seek revenge.

It is only when we surrender all to Christ that He will send the Holy Spirit to burn that wicked trait out of you to be replaced by a heart of grace.

Now just as when you plant seeds today you do not harvest them tomorrow neither are you blessed with unlimited grace from the beginning. It take time to mature just like flowers.

For me, when someone crossed me I was very vengeful and cruel in getting my pound of flesh. It took an experience where the Lord told me to stand there and take the abuse without retribution. That was hard but through the power of the Holy Spirit successful.

It has taken me another eleven years and I am still working on it.

The Holy Spirit has brought me a long way since then and there is still a ways to go.

Oh, and by the way, do not think the wicked ones escaped punishment. Jehovah brought me to a place and told me to stand and watch.

I witnessed His justice and it was far more severe than anything I could have done.

There was no joy in my heart at seeing His justice handed out but fear. Fear, because, of what would happen to me if I angered the Lord.

Now sometimes we have to understand the others situation.

So perhaps a woman was abused by her dad and or brothers and she is cold towards you at school or work. You do not know why unless you are patient, gentle and loving with her or find a Christian woman to talk with her. Maybe it is a cultural thing or maybe there is problems in the others life. We need to be patient and with prayer ask Jehovah to open our eyes to the others situation and the proper course to take.

“Grace is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.” Unknown

Prayer: Please my Beloved Heavenly father Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always emulate You and expand a loving heart in my life so as to bring the lost unto You and so as to please You. I sincerely request this in the name of the most loving best friend who has shown me His love all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Book of Wisdom

 The thoughts and purposes of the [consistently] righteous are just (honest, reliable). But the counsels and schemes of the wicked are deceitful Proverbs 12:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One thing I have learned in my long walk with Christ is that a good name is worth more than a big bank account. There have been times when I was honest even though it cost me a little with local merchants ( Like one time I forgot to pay for an item that cost a dollar and walked two miles back to pay for it. Most folks laughed and thought I was stupid. However, now that merchant always gives me better deals than they do anyone else. Now, they are indignant and ask what makes me so special? ).

The deeds you do today will be rewarded tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The other benefit of being honest is that I sleep good at night while the dishonest worry about getting caught ( which they always do ). Most dishonest people suffer numerous health problems and they can all be traced back to stress caused by worry of getting caught and being greedy.

“A godly mind prizes honor above worldly good.” Rembrandt

I know of one man that I asked to help me and he replied that he could not because he did not have gas money to come here to help me and then he went out fishing. Now whenever he tries to scam me ( scamming is where you try to get something from someone without giving anything in return) he is reminded that if he does not have gas money to help me he does not have gas money to scam anything out of me, it drives him nuts.

“All human sin seems so much worse in its consequences than in its intentions.” Reinhold Niebuhr

The greatest reward of being honest is the blessing of becoming closer to my Beloved in Heaven. As a consequence He warns me of those who deal dishonestly.

I have seen many say that they believe that everything that they touch is cursed, but if they reflect back on their life they will see that they were extremely dishonest with others so yes Jehovahs hand is against them. The stupid thing is that they know if they turn from their wicked ways Jehovah will not only stop curing them but will begin to bless them yet they refuse to stop being dishonest.

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom” Thomas Jefferson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori ( the Lord is my Light ) for blessing me with Your light of truth and integrity in my life. It has proven the true manner in which to walk in my daily life. I praise You in the name of the Light of the World Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I will Look in Triumph

CHRISTS POWER

 People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. John 3:19-20 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

When I first became a Christian it confused me why certain folks hated me with a passion even though I did nothing to offend them.

After reading this first the Lord blessed me with understanding.

They hate all Christians because we who walk in the Light convict those that enjoy walking in the darkness. They know what they are doing is wrong ( the Holy Spirit convicts them ) yet steadfastly refuse to repent of their wicked ways. They laugh and say that either there is no God or He does not care.

When they encounter us true Christians their conscience is pricked and they do not like it.

Then in their evil perverted minds they conceive every torment they can upon us and laugh at our discomfort. They foolishly believe they are getting away with it.

Time and again it clearly states that Jehovah is a God of justice and He will deliver terrifying justice on His time and in His way.

From my experience those whom the wicked tormented will be witnesses to it. I certainly did not enjoy it, indeed , many times I wanted to cry watching them suffer, but accept that Jehovah cannot allow the wicked to go unpunished.

Those who walk in Christ will be avenged in Gods time in Gods way. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We do not gloat over it but allow it to digest into our heart and mind so that we can share this testimony with other tormentors in the hopes that they will repent.

As well, it is encouraging to those who are being wickedly persecuted. The Lord is on my side, He is among those who help me;

Therefore I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for condemning the wicked ones and delivering true justice to the wicked ones that inflict pain and suffering upon the innocent ones. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ . Amen

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

There is No Fear

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love]. 1 John 4:18 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I believe that John was referring to repentant Christians in this passage.

Those who do not belong to Christ and unrepentant Christians have every right to fear Jehovahs punishment.

Hell is real, it is not pleasant and is for an eternity. There is no plea bargaining before Jehovah nor parole. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand, there is no need for a repentant Christian to worry about Jehovahs wrath. Christ has paid for our ransom and repentance is the second key.

Yes, Jesus’ blood has paid the price for our sins but if we continue in them that sacrifice is made null and void.

When we love Jehovah we desire to please Him and that means living a righteous life.

No one lives without sin. If that was possible Christ would not have made His horrifying sacrifice.

However when we sin and come before Jehovah with a sincere heart that is remorseful for what we have done and pray for the Holy Spirits power to be in us to overcome this weakness not only will our sins be forgiven but the Holy Spirit will bless us to conquer our habitual sins which are too strong for us to defeat on our own.

I know, there were many strong habitual sinful habits that I tried to conquer on my own only to crash and burn. When they were surrendered to the Holy Spirit He INSTANTLY forever destroyed them.

Now sometimes we must work in conjunction with the Holy Spirit by say getting into good Christian counseling to deal with the underlying reasons for the weakness (so sometimes someone abuses alcohol and or drugs to kill the pain of something tragic and painful earlier in our lives that they have not dealt with).

Again, I know of that of which I speak because I was blessed with Godly Christian councilors that took a year of counseling to deal with those issues. Many others it takes two or three years.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for Your cherished gift of sanctification (sanctify: to purify or free from sin) through Your holy blood when we repent of our weakness (sin) and thank you through the gift of the Holy Spirits ultimate power of forever smashing the destructive addictions in my life. I am eternally grateful in Your wonderful name. Amen.

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