My Double Blessing.

I CAN LEAN ON HIM

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 New International Version

 

Every day I pray that Jesus molds me to be more like Him.

 

One day I wanted to go to the library to work on my writing. (it is very hot and the library has air-conditioning. As well they are doing construction where I live and it is very noisy).

 

There was a strong feeling to go grocery shopping instead.

 

When at the supermarket there was a one day sale where many of the items needed were half price.

 

While waiting in line an elderly Chinese female tried to queue jump in front of me.

 

I firmly but politely informed her to go to the back of the line as I stretched out my arm to prevent her from jumping in front of me.

 

Chinese are very stubborn and rude so the arm was put out because they just ignore you and do as they want anyway.

 

She tried to ignore me and push in front. I gently but firmly pushed her back and told her in a stronger voice to get to the back of the line.

 

She understood she was not going to get away with her rudeness and the cashier informed her she would not accept her groceries until she got to the back of the line so she angrily went to the back of the line.

 

The other Chinese females were happily impressed. Upon reflecting upon it later I realized that is exactly what Jesus would have done.

 

Please do not be politically correct and say the old female should have been allowed to get away with her arrogant rudeness. Jesus did not accept abhorrent behavior from anyone regardless of age or status and neither should a Christian.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me in the proper manner in how to deal with arrogant and rude men and women.

 

I give thanks for this gift in the name of he who did not tolerate rudeness Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

There are no Exceptions.

BE RESPECTFUL

Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 New King James Version

There is no exclusion clause in this statement.

This may include family. This may include teachers or co-workers.

If there is someone who enjoys walking with the devil you are best to keep your distance from them less they take you to hell with them. Joseph- Anthony: Green                       .

This means excluding them in your life.

So if you have a brother or sister that loves to watch porno you do not go over to their house for supper and then watch pornos. It will corrupt you.

If there is a relative that is self centered and  rude no matter how cool you think they are have no contact with, them will drag you into hell with them.

This is especially important for parents to instill with their children.

Do not be cow towed by political correctness.

If there is a homosexual for a scoutmaster I would not allow my children near them (I do not condemn them for their lifestyle, that is up to Jesus not me but I will protect my children from a corrupt lifestyle). I may lose some readers on this but it is the truth.

If there is a cool fellow at school or work that loves to go to the bars for one night stands and invites you politely refuse.

If there is a popular girl at school or work that loves to put others down, keep your distance.

 

Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my best friend) guide me to fellowship with Godly children and warn me of wicked ones so that I will grow in our divine loving relationship. In Your loving name I do pray. Amen.

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

Why Would He?

REPENT OR ELSE

 

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. Psalm 66:18 New International Version

There was a man with two sons.

One son was obedient and loving with his father. As a consequence the father loved to show his affection and appreciation by showering the son with gifts.

The other son was arrogant, rude and unappreciative of the father. As a result the father gave that son nothing.

 

The first son is a Christian, the second worldly.

If you cherish the sinful life you are arrogant rude and disobedient to the Father. When you are like that and need His help why should He listen to you when you reject Him?

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with an amazing loving relationship with you. Because of this I know You will always listen to this, Your loving child that You love so much. I praise you in the name of Your most holy son Jesus Christ. Amen.

You Cannot Say It.

Image

“He did all this so you would never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.’ Remember the LORD your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.” Deuteronomy 8:17-18                                                                                           

Show me a self made man and I will show you a lucky fool. Joseph- Anthony: Green.                                                                                                                                                        

I have met many who like to brag that they are self made men or women. Funny thing is that in the end the majority of them end their lives pennie less and going from living in a mansion to living on the streets.                                                                      

To say that we are self made is arrogant and rude to Jehovah.                                          

It is by Jehovahs grace that you have become successful and it is for a reason other than self serving. It is to use that wealth for His purposes.                                  

This does not refer just to finances.                                                                                                  

If you have been gifted with being an accomplished musician than use that talent to help underprivileged children. If you are a gifted painter use that talent to help give confidence to the underprivileged.                                                                                 

As well, yes use the money wisely to help the disadvantaged.                                              

That does not mean to foolishly give money to souls in these third world countries that breed like rabbits and expect us to support them because they are too lazy to work.                                                                                                                                      

The same goes for the welfare bums in the western countries that are too lazy to work but expect to receive hand outs like it is owed to them.                                       

Jehovah has blessed each and every one of us with a talent and it is our duty to prayfully request He send us where He wants us to be to do the work He has prepared for us to do with that talent.  Then to obediently obey Him.                             

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.1 Peter 4:10 New International Version                            

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) bless me with the wisdom to utilize the talent You have blessed me with in Your way and in the place You have prepared for me to humbly serve You. I submissively request this in the name of Your most talented son Jesus Christ. Amen.                                         

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

Jesus, Please, Whack Me

Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin. Proverbs 13:13 New International Version

delightful panoramic water dance

Why not say this in the Jesus, whenever I am tempted to lose my temper and blurt out words that I will regret latter, please whack me in the

I know many times throughout the day when tempted to lose it because of rude creatures the Holy Spirit whispers in my ear
to stop and pray. It is like getting whacked on the front of the head and makes me stop instantly.
Every time I feel the urge to gossip about somebody Jesus, please whack me in the head to stop me from saying words that will hurt others. From words that will Whenever someone tries to start a gossip session with  me I just ask them what they are saying about me when I am not there while looking them right in the eyes. They feel very uncomfortable, shut up and find an excuse to get away from me.

Many times I am excluded from conversations but that is okay because I do not want to be a part of the gossiping Gertys get together anyway that just hacks at others with their Anthony: Green
Do not say in a moment what you may regret later for a lifetime. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to speak with Your divine grace, wisdom and eloquence in all my conversations that they will be a sweet fragrance to You instead of the filthy putrid stench of the gossipers.  I humbly request this blessing in the name of the most graceful, eloquent and wise speaker of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Pray For It.

Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly. Proverbs 14:29 New International Version

FEED THE MIND

There was a place God led me to that was quiet and I could meditate there with my Bible.

About a week later while attempting to enjoy my meditation people were constantly coming to me and asking what I was doing. As they were Chinese who did not understand English and I did not understand Chinese I informed them politely that I do not understand Chinese (which is one phrase I do know). They refused to go away and permit me to continue my meditation. They just stood there in loud whiney voices trying to get me to talk with them.

I prayed for the Lord to bless me with patience and endurance. A feeling of calm enveloped me as the Chinese were ignored and the meditation continued as planned. This continued every day for a week.

Later upon praying to God for wisdom on how to stop this rude behavior He revealed to me that Satan was using the Chinese as a way to get between His and my time of communion and to just ignore them.

Obeying this advice the Chinese grew tired of interrupting me and stopped attempting to interrupt my meditation time after a week.
They knew I was a Christian because I made the sign of a cross and clasped hands together which they understood that I was meditating with God.

If I had of lost it what type of witness would that have been?

As there were many of them and one of me, what do you think would have happened if things got into a yelling match?

After living in China for about ten years I know it would have gotten very ugly, very quickly.

There is only one letter difference between “anger” and “danger”

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) bless me with the peace, patience wisdom and strength to refuse to allow satan to get under my skin.I know that as Your ambassador my behavior reflects back upon You. I beseech You in the name of He who always emulated His holy father Jesus Christ.
Amen.

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