These are the clothes of Christians.

Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; but above all these things put on love. Colossians 3:12&14 New International Version BE RESPECTFUL

Why not try this: Every day in your morning prayers (and of course being a good Christians you always begin t you?) ask Jehovah to bless you with a heart that is filled with kindness, humilty (being humble is the opposite of being proud and arrogant) meekness (Meekness means keeping your temper under control. How many need this on the morning rush hour?), longsuffering (Long suffering means patience. How many of us need patience in the check out lines in a grocery store or restaurant?) and, the end result will be a Christ centered heart filled with love.

Then, ask Jehovah to bless you with at least one opportunity to express this to someone through out the day.

When you blow it and do not exhibit one these traits, just close your eyes and apologize to God and then, if possible, to the one you were rude to. Keep a diary and write these exploits down.

See how much it changes your attitude.

I know I certainly was amazed.

An added benefit will be that you will find your day much more peaceful, calm and filled with joy and appreciation for how much of these Jesus is with you through out the day.

These are the clothes of Christians.

Of course we also have love and grace but that will be another article, okay?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hosanna (the Lord our maker) make me a beautiful set of righteous and holy clothes to put on today and every day so that I may glorify You, bless others and enrich myself with the most treasured riches of all. I humbly request this in the name of my mighty and meek king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Must do Our Part.

And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:28 New King James Version

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

God promises and He always delivers on our promises. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Gods promises for our blessings are only for those who walk with Him. There are numerous promises in both the New and Old Testament to attest to that fact.

There are conditions however.

We cannot expect the promise if we are not obeying as God commands of us.

So if Jehovah commands that we do not have other gods before Him and we worship athletes or movie stars or musicians
how can we expect to receive His promise? If we worship our houses, position in society or anything other than Jehovah?

So we must do our part and obey in order to receive the blessings.

The only way Abraham received the promise was to obey even though he did not understand.
Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be attentive and obedient to Your wise word. I humbly request this in the name of He who was obedient to Your will all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

sweet love bless you today and every day.

How is Your Neighbourly Skills?

“You shall not see your brothers ox or his sheep going astray, and hide yourself from them; you shall certainly bring them back to your brother. And if your brother is not near you, or if you do not know him, then you shall bring it to your own house, and it shall remain with you until your brother seeks it; then you shall restore it to him. You shall do the same with his donkey, and so shall you do with his garment; with s, which he has lost and you have found, you shall do likewise; you must not hide yourself.

“You shall not see your brother’s donkey or his ox fall down along the road, and hide yourself from them; you shall surely help him lift them up again.” Deuteronomy 22:1-4 New King James Version

BE GRACEFUL UNTO OTHERS

When Jesus was talking about neighbour do you think He was referring to the above scripture?

‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Mark 12:32 New King James Version

If so does that not mean that all are our neighbour whether they are Christians or non-Christians? Whether they come from the same country as you or are the same colour? How often do you go out of your way to help another, especially if it means a
personal sacrifice on your behalf?

I have done it numerous times. Sometimes it is challenging, sometimes easy but knowing that I am honouring Jesus always makes
it fulfilling.

Do not do it for any reward or for a show.

Now when men or women ask me why I do it, it is a great opportunity to share Christ with them.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for blessing me with the knowledge, skill and opportunity to glorify You by my actions and perhaps bring a lost little sheep to You holy fold. I humbly give praise to You in the name of He who was gracious to all His neighbours Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Keep Yourself Centered

Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?”  Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “But Lord, what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”John 21: 20-22 New King James Version

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

When you  have received your calling from Christ, stay focused on that calling.

Others opinions are irrelevant.

When  I informed others calling in my life they always tried to dissuade me, they made fun of me and sometimes tried to put things in my way to intentionally make me fail.

If I had of listened to them, I would not have accomplished anything Christ set out for me to do.
As well, do not worry about the other guy whether that be a family member, or a buddy at school or church with their calling.

That is between them and Jesus.

Do not compare your calling to theirs.
For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.  For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,  so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them Romans 12:3-6New King James Version

Their calling may be to work with an international group with a lot of prestige. Yours may be working with the homeless or elderly that gets no attention by others. They are both important to Jesus or He would not have assigned them.

Jesus does not waste anyone’s time.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for blessing me with the calling You have specifically for me in Your Holy family. This servant gives thanks in the name of my King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What Kind of Ambassador are You?

We are ambassadors for Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:20 New King James Version

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

 

An ambassador represents their country and their government. As such, when we call ourselves Christians everything we say and do represents Christ our king and His kingdom.

What kind of ambassador are you at work, at school, while driving, while shopping and in all your other activities?

 

How about your speech? Do people see a loving but firm Christ when you talk about abortion or homosexuality? Do you have a potty mouth just to fit in or are your words filled with wisdom, grace and meekfulness (It is not weak to be meek. Meekfulness means keeping your temper under control. Only the strong can do that.)

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me. Acts 1:8 New King James Version

As an ambassador it is our divine duty to speak with others of our King and His kingdom. As well as, to invite others to become citizens of our kingdom with our King.

How often do you share Jesus at work, at school, on the bus to work or school, in your
neighbourhood?

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Mein Jerusalem,
and in all Judea and Samaria, Acts 1:8 New International Version

You want a real challenge?
No it is not going on short term missions (which from my observations do more harm than good) where nobody
knows you. It is being an ambassador in your school, at work, in your neighbourhood and where you do volunteer work.

Now if you are going to be an ambassador for Christ do not seek the accolades from man or woman because instead you will many times receive mockery and indeed down right hostility.
To be frank with you I have received more hostility in our so called free world (which is slowly being taken over by the
satanic politically correct) than I did living ten years in communist China.
Prayer: Please Jehovah KaEl (voice of God) bless me to be an obedient child and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit as He guides me where You want me to be and to say the words You want me to say so that others will be blessed to be receptive to Your word, repent and enjoy a loving relationship with You. I humbly request this in the name of He who was the best ambassador when He
walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Two Plus Two Equals Go

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it
says.” James 1:22 New International Version

 

ACTION

 

Jehovah has blessed us with two ears and two feet. Therefore, we are to not only listen to the Word, but to use our feet to walk where the Word leads us.To do the things the Word has revealed for us to do. 


Otherwise, you are a fool. 
You believe you are a Christian, but do not obey the commands of our king
Jesus.

Listening is passive; it means you just sit there. Anthony: Green    


Prayer: Please Jehovah Sabaoth (God, the commander of the army) bless me to be obedient to my almighties command to serve You. Please bless me with the wisdom, guidance, grace and opportunities to bring glory, honour, praise and the little lost sheep to Your awesome kingdom. I meekly request this in the
name of my mighty king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Are to Use It

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

PURPOSE OF GOD

Yes, Jesus is our Savior, but He is also our king.

As such, does that not make us His servants?
And what do servants do?

They serve right?

Who determines where the servant is to serve?

The King right?

So if the servant wants to take care of the Kings garden but the King wants them to serve cleaning His toilets what are we His obedient servants to do?

Clean the toilets right?

So too it is to be with us.

Instead of going off half cocked using the hit and miss technique (you know, I will just go out and do what I think Jesus wants me to do and if it is not right I will just keep searching until I find what I think He wants me to do) is it not better to wait, pray and seek guidance on where the King wants us to serve?

Now just because He wants you to serve here today does not mean He may not want you to serve somewhere else tomorrow.

In my walk in servant hood I have served in various fields such as medicine, teacher and writer.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Adonai (Jesus our king) for the special privilege of serving You in my daily life. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen.

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

He Cannot Do Them All.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7 King James Version

DARKNESS

Believe it or not, Jehovah cannot answer all our prayers.

Oh he has the power and ability to but he is restrained by unco-operating sprits.

So let us say you deeply want reconciliation with someone who has hurt you and is unrepentant or that you feel repentant to someone you hurt.

God gives each of us free will.

So someone who is arrogant or bitter He cannot force to reconcile. There was someone who repeatedly abused me when I was a child.

Numerous times I tried to reconcile with them when I became a man only to have them cruelly laugh at me and deny the events even occurred, despite there were numerous official records of the incidents.

I prayed hard core for many years for reconciliation to happen.

He died a very slow and painful death, unrepentant til the end.

So it is not that God breaks His promise, it is that there are those who refuse to obey His grace.

When this happens, do not blame God but blame the arrogant unrepentant one.

Then there are times we ask for what we deeply desire and He does not give it to us. It is because it is not what He has planned for us.

For example, when I was a teenager all the way into my thirties I prayed every day for the blessing of having a wife, children, home and steady job.

Now in my middle years I believe this blessing was withheld from me because He intended me to serve Him in many various places across the country and indeed around the world in numerous difficult and dangerous situations.

He has blessed me with loving Christians throughout though that are closer than my own family and there are abundant cherished memories of the good accomplished in His name and through His name.

There are times when we ask for things that are not good for us so of course he cannot give them to us.

I asked for a contract in another part of the country that I really wanted to see because of its history and culture.

Instead the Lord directed me to the opposite end of the country. It was later revealed that there was a lot of infighting in the company and that it ended up closing three months after I was supposed to start.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for all the marvelous blessings You have bestowed upon me and for instructing me that there are some things that You cannot do due to unreceptive hearts. Please Jehovah always give me a heart that is receptive to Your will in all my ways in all my days. I sincerely ask this in the name of he who was obedient to Your will all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
. May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
