My Climate Recipe

HARD WORK

You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. Psalm 8:6-8 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament   personal hygiene

Recently we are constantly being bombarded on TV news with segments about these so called “climate activists” concerned about the rising temperatures.

Okay, if you are so concerned about climate change here is my climate recipe: Instead of using soap to wash yourselves with why not use a body brush. In my opinion (and I have successfully being using them for decades now) it does a better job than soap. Talking about showers or baths , how about you only have one bath every other day. I do and there is no body odor to me. personal  routine

Instead of using commercial underarm deodorant (which is harmful to your body in my opinion) why not use earth crystals which can be purchased at a health food store (yes, they are expensive but they also last for years compared to how long the commercial ones last).

Instead of using dish washing detergent why not use salt? Again, I have been doing this for years and the iodine in the salt kills the germs. While we are at it, instead of using a dishwasher why not try the old hand washing? I have never gotten sick from it.

Instead of using laundry detergent why not use baking soda? Again, I have been doing these things for decades now with no adverse effects. Instead of using the dryer why not hang up your clothes to dry? Please no immature cry babies complaining because they see their neighbors underwear. We did it for decades with no adverse affect on others so stop being so self righteous and grow up.

Instead of using fast food restaurant cutlery (throw away drinking cup and wrappers why not take in reusable containers? It is reusable so nothing is going in a landfill.

In the nice weather , if you live in a town, why not bicycle or walk to and from work? This is also a great way to relieve stress. Instead of clogging up the highways driving to and from work why not take the bus or train?

Instead of buying clothing made of polyester why not buy clothes made from wool and or cotton?

Why not grow a raised garden in your backyard or on your balcony? Why not have two rain barrels at each rain spout on your house? These will not only catch the rain and help prevent flooding but can also be used to water your garden and lawn which puts less stress on the town water supply and purification stations? Instead of using pesticides why not use organic pesticides like garlic and marigold? I do it and it works great for all kinds of pests and you get to eat fresh grown organic.

These are but a few tips to help keep our planet (and it is a planet not “mother earth, which is a cultist stupid word for our planet. It is giving a fictitious female a deity of worshiping her instead of the Creator of the earth which is satnic).

I bet most of you will not do these.

You know why?

Because, you are too lazy and do not want to make the commitment.

So instead of being self righteous and using climate change as an excuse to pump of your own over inflated ego why not get off your butts and put your money where your mouth is or shut up.

We are care takers of this planet not owners. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) Isaiah 40:28 (not “mother earth) for blessing me with the wisdom on how to make a personal commitment to caring for the paradise you have created for us (planet earth) which we are selfishly destroying. Please help others take up the same banner to help heal this planet which we were given to be care takers of. I humbly request this in the name of He who will reign on this planet after it has been healed Jesus Christ. Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared Revelation 21:1Holy Bible, New Living Testament Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am the Door

HIS INSTRUCTION

 I am the Door; anyone who enters through Me will be saved [and will live forever] John 10:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine trying to get out of a house by walking through the wall.

Impossible is it not?

Well so too is the saying that other religions can lead to Heaven as well. There is only one way and His name is Jesus.

Imagine you are travelling down a highway and your destination is a city in the west. You see two sign posts on the road ahead. One says to take the next right to go west while another says to take the next turn to go east.

Which one will you take?

The eastbound one right?

Of course not, that will take you in the wrong direction.

So too is it comparing the Bible with any other teaching. The Bible is the only guide book to Heaven. All others lead to Hell. When others say I am narrow minded, I agree. The road to Heaven is very narrow but the only one to take to get there. When others say I am very uncompromising I just remind them that the only way to quench thirst is by drinking liquids which is very uncompromising as well.   

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with the true knowledge of which way to travel on this planet which will ultimately lead me to Your Heavenly home. I give thanks for this blessing in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the knowledge and humbleness to accept that You are the Supreme King who holds the keys that unlock Heavens door. I eagerly anticipate the time when I can spend eternity with You worshipping You who alone are worthy of complete and total worship. In Your majestic name this servant of Your prays. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 It Was Not Easy for Him.

he leads us

“Have you thought about His (God) handling of the gospel? God needs to get a message out to the human race, without which they will perish…forever. What’s the plan? First, He starts with the most unlikely group ever: a couple of prostitutes, a few fishermen with no better than a second-grade education, a tax collector. Then, he passes the ball to us. Unbelievable.” — John Eldredge        

Me, I was a shy, timid, sick boy.                                            

Through the course of forty years Jehovah has taken me all over my country Canada and helped me bring the lost to Him. He took me to the forest in the mountains and on the prairies tree planting in extremely difficult and dangerous situations                                                                         

He was with me through a long dangerous, and many times painful four thousand bicycle journey from western coastal Canada, through the western coastal United States and down through Mexico to be a medical missionary. He did this three winters in a row.    

He then took me all over China in the course of ten years.                                         

Now He has brought me home after forty years to be a live in care giver for my mother, which ain’t easy.                                                                                    

It was not easy for Him.                                                                                

There was little self confidence, which is good.                                                    

There was little confidence in Him, which was good because little by little He drew me ever closer to Him.                                                                                  

So, do not believe the devils lies that you are not educated enough, you are not a good speaker, you are shy,you are, you are, the list goes on and on.                         

When Jehovah calls you into service, and He will, have faith in Him and His abilities not your own. Watch the amazing things He will do in you and through you.                              

Then I will give to the peoples [clear and pure speech from] purified lips [which reflect their purified hearts], That all of them may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him shoulder to shoulder (united).Zephaniah 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for taking a misfit like me and molding me into a servant of Your and for all the amazing work You have accomplished in me and through me. I exalt Your awesome name. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Go with Them

 

                                          

Get up, go downstairs and go with them without hesitating or doubting, because I have sent them Myself.” Acts 10:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes in life we encounter someone who the Lord desires for us to go to. Because we do not know them or where they want us to go we hesitate even though we feel the Lords urging to go with them. When the Lord says go, we are to go.

One time when I was unemployed I felt the Lord informing me to go to a certain town. I knew no body there. As soon as I got off the bus a man approached me and inquired if I was seeking working and when informed yes was told to put my gear in the back of his truck and let’s go. I did not know him or where we were going. It ended up being the best contract ever in that vocation of thirteen years.

We must not go on our own impulses but only by the certain voice of Jehovah, especially for our own safety.

Even though we do not see the end of the trail if Christ is guiding us there we must travel it in faith that His unseen hand is guiding along the way. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive and obedient unto Your voice when You are directing me unto others. Please bless me with discernment as to whether this is Your voice or the the scheming voice of the wicked one (satan) which will be leading me to disaster. I humbly request this in the name of He who listened and obeyed Your voice all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

So, God likes to sing too! He even likes to share his lullabies with you whom He loves. He gently rocks you in is His strong gentle loving arms as He quiets you, His child, with His affectionate loving care while singing you soothing lullabies.

My Wild Turkey Prayer.

SEVEN WILD TURKEYS CROP COPYWRITE

WILD DEER IN MIST copywrite

But certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer. Psalm 66:19 New King James Version                                         

I have been praying to my Beloved for over a year to bless me with the opportunity to photograph some wild deer and wild turkeys.                                               

Recently I suffered from an episode of burn out.                                    

 Every day for the past five months I had been involved in strenuous work to improve my aged disabled moms (I am her primary care giver)place.

As well, there was three days a week performing volunteer work which involved continuously moving for three hours each session.                                                                                         

One day I hit the wall.                                                                                     

 I bicycled out to Gods Cathedral (nature) dropped to my knees and cried like a baby while shaking like a leaf in a wind storm.                                

 I cried out to my Beloved to explain what was happening as I did not understand.                                                                                                    

His reply came in two words:” Go camping.”                                                     

 I replied: “My Lord, I just suffered a melt down and You want me to go out camping?”                                                                                                         

Then He explained that I was suffering burn out because I had violated His Law. Six days we shall work and then rest on the seventh. Because I did not do this both my mind and body were exhausted.                           

You can choose to commit the sin, you cannot choose the punishment. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                       

I needed rest and where better to get rest than Gods Cathedral (nature)? So I informed mom I was going camping for three days (mom needs care but it is time for the rest of the family to step forward and help out for once).                                                                            

 Jehovah guided me to a nice place on the side of a forested hill.                            

The next morning while saying prayer the Lord interrupted and told me to go say the prayers on the edge of the forest by the farmers field. I thought this a good idea as it is better to say my prayers in Gods Cathedral (nature) than the inside of a tent. While saying the prayers I noticed a flash of white and took no notice as I thought it was a grouse. As I was continuing to say the prayers the Lord urged me to look to my right. There was a white tailed deer that almost walked into me. I quickly took a photo even thought it was foggy out.                                

 The last day out as I was leaving the Lord urged me to go down a little trail. As it had been cold and rainy all weekend I just wanted a hot bath and warm meal (I fasted on home made fruit juice all weekend) but obeyed. Then He directed me to take a photo of a hill covered in beautiful fall foliage. I did not want to at first because many photos were taken the previous day but am glad I obeyed.                               

When I got home there was something in that photo so it was enlarged. There on the bottom of the hill were seven wild turkeys (do you know that God promises to bless us seven times in the Bible). The photo looks great.                                                                                                  

Not only did my Beloved heal, refresh and renew me that weekend He blessed me with the photo’s I was praying for, for over a year.                               

Jehovah constantly amazes me at the incredible (and even humourous) ways He answers my prayers.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah(Jehovah is faithful ) for promising to answer my prayers in Your time and Your amazing ways. You inform us to pray without ceasing, believing You will answer our prayers and You are always faithful to answer them in Your Divine way and Your Divine time. I exalt You in the name of He who came to earth to pay for my sins in Your time and in Your way   Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Took Me Where I Did Not Want To Go.

WE MUST LET GO

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9    New King James Version

 

When I completed my TESOL course the intention was to teach in Central America. The Lord however was directing me to China. I thought He was crazy and there was no way that destination was even on the radar.

As I love Jesus I obediently ventured to China even though there was dread in my heart because it was a communist country and I am a Christian.

It has been a difficult ten years travelling and teaching all along the coast from the north to the south. Through His wise guidance He has lead me to people who were open to listening about Him and accepting Him.

Sometimes the Lord will lead you where you do not want to go because you are afraid. Trust Him, obey Him and follow Him. He will be with you every step of the way.

Reflecting back on the experience the understanding came to me that His way was, is and always will be the best way.

A bonus is how much that in my difficult times and learning to trust in Him we have grown oh so very close.

 

What a marvelous blessing that is as well as the fact that I have helped guide others into Christ’s wonderful family.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rohi (Holy Spirit our Sheppard) for being such a patient, wise and strong guide in my life to take me to the places You have prepared for me to do the work You have prepared for me. I praise You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Only Answers When Asked.

TRUST IN HIM

I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fearsPsalm 34:4 King James Version

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” Deuteronomy 33:27

When we are in trouble we need to seek Jehovah’s guidance, have faith in Him and obey Him in order for it to work.

When we approach Jehovah with a sincere heart in times of trouble with complete confidence He hears and answers our prayers he will answer.

I know there was one time when I was in a dangerous situation and saw no way out. I prayed to my beloved with fear but trust. He delivered me in an amazing way. As I felt His hand moving in the situation, a feeling of calm and confidence overwhelmed me. He delivered me in an unusual way but I had trust in Him.

 

It was when I was hiking along the coast during low tide on a trail that went for a long distance.

 

I did not understand about how high tides rose and fell.

I was trapped on a small island and felt the ocean was going to wash me away.

There was no civilization either way for about forty kilometers.

I felt moved to climb to the top and there was a little hole just big enough for me to climb through.

 

Even though there was a fierce storm with raging waves I was secure in my little cubby hole.

 

I was enveloped in a sense of peace and serenity and enjoyed the best nights sleep of the entire hiking trip.

 

He has done this numerous times in my walk with Him and He will with you as well.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) for blessing me with walking with me through my numerous trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.  I give thanks for this wonderful blessing in the name of He who was with His disciples through the storm Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Three Quarters Given.

PERFECT LOVE

 

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

He calms the storm. Proverbs 107:29 New King James Version

There was a bad storm coming our way today with snow storms turning to freezing rain. This makes driving extremely treacherous.

Mom had a friend driving her to another city for medical treatment as well as another friend that had to drive her daughter to another city for an operation.

I prayed the Lord bless their journey with holding off the storms until mom and her friend safely returned home.

When she left there were light flurries.  They continued throughout the day.

Just as mom and her friend got home the freezing rain began.

Three quarters of my prayers were given to me.

I prayed for mom to have a safe trip there and back and it was done.

I prayed for moms friend to have a safe trip there and back and she just missed being involved in a terrible pile up on the highway and got back safely.

The Lord held off the freezing rain until after they came home.

Although it did snow out it was not a blizzard with white outs.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for with holding Your tempest until my loved ones arrived safely home.  I praise you in the name of He who calmed the storm for His terrified disciples on the sea Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You Prepared to Pay the Cost?

HARRASED

And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. Matthew 19:29 New King James Version Wealth comes at a cost.

 

Are you prepared to pay the cost for Heavens treasures? Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Following Christ always comes at a cost. Many times it means being rejected by your family.

 

 

That hurts, believe me I know.

 

Many times following Christ will mean sacrificing your house to travel abroad or to another city to serve in difficult circumstances.

 

I know, I sacrificed leaving the comfort of country to travel to a country where I did not know the language and lived under very difficult primitive circumstances.

 

Now this is why  I strongly do not believe in short term missions and here are the reasons why:

 

When I was teaching in China it took me six months before some students were interested in developing a relationship with Christ. Believe me they had many questions

 

If you are there only for a month or two even if they are interested who is going to teach them after you are gone?

 

 

Who is going to lay the foundation?

 

Two: If you go to a third world county and build some homes for poor people : the people do not know how to take care of them and in a year the house looks like a shanty shack, two the neighbours will become jealous which causes fights

 

Three many times they just want money or to improve their English skills. If you have an interpreter they tell the people what the government want to hear and not what you are telling them, you need to know the language and customs.

 

But your reward in return will be a crown presented to you by Christ in Heaven.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Adonai (God is sovereign) for the promised blessing of receiving a rich reward fro Your precious son upon my arrival in Heaven because of my sacrifice to You. I also thank you my love because in these trying circumstances it has brought me closer to You. I praise You in the name of He who left His father in His home to come to serve us Jesus Christ. Amen.
