hodgepodge of nothingness or somethingness

How did it happen that the Second World War was won? Was it because the United States entered the war? It happened because America held to this underlying principle. “You are My witnesses,” says the LORD, ‘and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He, before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the LORD, and besides Me there is no savior.'”

From that collective conscience emerged the worlds greatest killing machine for the defeat of tyranny in defense of life and liberty and justice for all. Stated this way, “The archers have bitterly grieved him, shot at him and hated him. But his bow remained in strength, and the arms of his hand were made strong by the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob.”

Remember from previous discussions how Jacob emerged upon the world scene? Providing for a world order that is with us to this very day. Giving birth to a lad named, Ephraim, or Great Britain and her Commonwealth of Nations. And his older brother, Manasseh, or the United States. A history you got to know in order to understand world events today.

Continuing with the hands made strong by hands of the Mighty God of Jacob. This must be known, Israel is the focus of world turmoil yesterday, today and tomorrow. And all, whether individuals, or nations will be drawn into this bitter turmoil. Working to make extinct those who support Israel. There is a new tomorrow fast approaching where to be anti-Semitic and anti-Christian will be the prevailing ideology for the elimination of global hostility and global turmoil.

As during the second world war, American might ended the war! So in this age of unconventional war, compared to the European great war. This will turn the tables in favor of the Jews and Christians. Recognition that, “From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel. By the God of your father, who will help you. And by the Almighty who will bless you. with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath, blessings of the breast and of the womb.”

“The blessings of your father have excelled the blessings of your ancestors. Up to the utmost bound of thew everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him, who was separate from his brothers.”

What you have read is the America of yesterday. The challenge is to return America to her place godly prominence. Better understood when the other discussions of the past several days have been read.

engine lighting how its done

There is a perfect formula that ignites the engines for wealth. And from that wealth emerges the brain trusts of some gifted individuals. Bringing their geniuses together in perfect harmony, as though in harmony one with the other. Creating all the necessary infrastructures for the making of the greatness of America, whether during peace and prosperity or war and depletion.

But for that to occur, all the forces from humble ingenuity, to the exalted laboratories for scientific invention, to the scholars of academia who produce an informed electorate. Instilling an awareness that Americans knew that they dwelt in the courts of divine providence from whence all prosperity flowed. That was yesterday, but which has pretty much disappeared from the American conscience today.

Here is a twenty first century phenomena which is not likely to repeat itself in America of today. Because of its offensiveness to the conscience of a society wanting to be pluralistic. Pluralism by its very nature must deny notions of divine intervention. Because divine intervention, by its very nature is exclusionary. It’s recorded this way, “Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is none like Me. Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient time the things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.'” See Isaiah 46:9-10.

So in times long gone, the President, My Fellow Americans: Last night, I spoke with you about the fall of Rome. I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join me in prayer. Almighty God, our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give them strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest until the victory is won. The darkness will rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with violence of war.

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among Thy people. They yearn for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants into Thy kingdom.

And for us at home, fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them. Help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in the hour of great sacrifice.

Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayers be on our lips, invoking Thy help in our efforts.

Give us strength too. Strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contribution we make in the physical and mental support of our armed forces.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impact our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord give us faith. Give us faith in Thee, faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keeness of our spirit be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment. Let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogance. Lead us in the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world of unity that will spell a sure peace. A peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt , June 6, 1944

anything but ordinary

Empires, one faded, Ephraim, or Great Britain, the other on its way, Manasseh, or the United States. Picking up from yesterday on the subject of stalwart incubators. From a combination of an angel and a man with mysterious doings of divine providence. Seeking an answer, for what was the genius behind the United States rushing to offer benevolence globally? While at the same time, becoming a monster of death through her unparalleled military apparatus.

Blessed is the man You choose, and cause to approach You, that he may dwell in your courts. See Psalms 65:4. Another ancient chronicler report the above as follows. “I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask of Me,” Roams 10:20. It’s also the path this Padre experienced.

When that occurs, this is its aftermath. God visited the earth and watered it. You greatly enrich it; the river of God is gull of water. You provided their grain You have prepared it. You water its ridges abundantly. You settle its furrows. You make it soft with shower. You bless its growth. You crown the year with your goodness. And your paths drip with abundance, they drop on the pastures of the wilderness. And the little hills rejoice on every side. The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valley are clothed with grain. They shout for joy, they also sing.

Once divine providence with all its mysteriousness descends upon someone. And that someone, or someones responds. Unconsciously at first, they brought to dwell in the court of God Almighty. But something happens to them as they journey into the destiny of governess. Perhaps as they observe the unexplainable abundance of natural resources such as food production. Here’s a proven equation. Rain+sunshine=food. Rain and sunshine in the right amount equals the ability to harvest crops which nourishes everything necessary to move on from agriculture to industrial magnificence. And American industrial wealth, has made her a superior unparalleled superpower. But it’s slipping away because America as a people with its elected leaders are not being drawn into the court of divine providence. Because there is a prevailing attitude through out the nation, that this God stuff doesn’t work for a highly technical society. Arguing that innovation is the child of ingenuity which leads to productivity and renown world status. Today America seeks human derived equations to prove her greatness, as an unmatched super power for global dominance.

stalwart incubators

What was the genius behind the United States rushing to offer benevolence globally? While at the same time, becoming a monster of death through her unparalleled military apparatus.

Answer, divine providence, who intervened in the affairs of humankind. Whether they liked it or not, however, if in opposition, they eventually succumbed, and became stalwart incubators through whom divine providence could manifest itself.

Here’s a tale that might be tall or not. Jacob had just finished moving and found himself alone at night. Unexpectedly, Jacob found himself wresting with a stranger. The two wrestled a long time. Seems like the man wasn’t trying to do Jacob any serious bodily harm. Just kind of toyed with him. Until he realized dawn was approaching. Then, he deliberately threw Jacob’s hip out of joint. Saying, “Let me go; it’s daybreak.”

Jacob said, “No not til you bless me.” The stranger asked, “What’s your name?” The response, “Jacob.” Said the stranger, “Not any longer. Your name from now on is Israel.” Continuing the stranger said, “You have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed,”

Aroused with curiosity, Israel said, “Tell me your name.” Intuition kicks in, as the stranger responds, “Why is it that you ask about my name?” Immediately, Israel knew that he had interacted with divine providence.

The chronicler of this event acknowledged on the spot that Israel had been christened picturesquely to be the face of what would become the state of Israel. And Israel confirms this for our chronicler by saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and my life has been preserved.”

Some have heard the old adage, “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels,” Hebrews 1:14.At the start, Jacob thought a stranger had invaded his space where he had settled for the night. He was told, if you recall, that he struggled with God and man. So this man, the embodiment of an angel, who had taken on the incarnation of a man. Which represented the horrors of a night invasion that turned out to be the launching of a career that would announce the birth of two nations from the lineage of Abraham and Isaac. Which were, Ephraim, Great Britain and her Commonwealth of Nations and, Manasseh, the United States. The topics of recent discussions.

As stalwart incubators two more thoughts. The question was asked, what are these my lord? The angel answered, “These are four spirits of heaven, who go out from their station before the Lord of all the earth.” And, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who have inherited salvation.”

magnificence who owns it

An infant, the United States, compared to Europe when wars ravaged Europe during two of its wars. But the contribution of the United States was enormous in both wars. World War 1, most likely would have lasted longer without U.S. involvement. And the final outcome for World War 2 most likely would have been different also.

Here’s the history of the world’s greatest and most formidable empire. An aging man near death summoned his sons to his death bed. And Jacob, did so to teach them a vital history lesson. One of his sons, Joseph, brought Jacob’s grandsons with him, Manasseh and Ephraim. And Jacob made a pronouncement that would forever change world geography and global politics. Of Manasseh he said, “… I know my son, I know, he also shall become a people, and he shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations.”

So by divine unction, working through him ceremonially, a future history was created that could not be altered, by the best of generals or admirals no matter how potent their empires were. By placing his hands on their heads and uttering these words, “May God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh.” From that blessing would come Great Britain and her Commonwealth of Nations. Derived from a simple statement, that the younger brother, Ephraim would become a multitude of nations. Great Britain stellar in battle on the high seas or land adopted as one of her national symbols the lion. Signifying to the community of nations speed, bravery and strength.

But the powerful lion became oppressive by persecuting the children of Ephraim who sensed their grandfathers union with divine providence within them. They wanted that and wanted to express it, but the throne said no.

So the lion took to the air with wings to lift itself. Symbolizing what divine providence had sanctioned let no man disturb. While asleep, a man dreamt what he called a night vision. And said this, “I saw the world in disorder. A lion lifted itself from the ground with powerful wings. And landed in a far away land. He was given two legs like a man. Given the heart of a man symbolizing his benevolent nature. Known as Uncle Sam around the world. Because erasing human suffering at home, or abroad is what the world came to expect and experienced from the United States.

The United States escaped the tyranny of Great Britain, so it’s her genesis to oppose tyrannical empires wherever, and whenever their ugliness manifests itself. As a fighting machine, like no other, in the history of warfare.

dream of visions

Capturing history can occur through the strangest of places. Like this phrase, “but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations.” It’s a plucked phrase from Genesis 48:19. Immediately recognized by many as a reference to Great Britain. Through her declaration of pride that the sun never sets upon her empire. Somewhere in her world, the sun was always rising. Protected by one of her national symbols, the lion know for it’s strength and courage.

Taking us to a person in history generally not thought to be very credible as a historian. Who in the end will show himself to be one of the most credible of historians. By writing down what he called a dream of visions. Must have been quite the dream because he decided to record only its main facts. He says, “and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the great sea.” Causing four great beasts to emerge the sea, each different from the other. This discussion will concern itself with the first beast. See Daniel 7:2-3.

Get this! Our historian says that he saw what looked like a lion. But with one exception, it had wings like an eagle. His observations were focused on an unbelievable sight. Its wings were plucked off, as it was lifted from the earth. This lion bird journeyed to some unannounced destination and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. See Daniel 7:4.

From yesterdays discussion that event was the result of the anointing Jacob pronounced upon the oldest of his grandsons, Manasseh. Which read in part, “I know my son, I know. He also shall be great.” See Genesis 48:19. O America, you are that gifted flighted eagle that broke loose from that winged lion. Picturesque of Great Britain, who would experience the exodus of a people fleeing religious persecution from the throne of England. With the bald eagle becoming the official symbol of the United States that would replace that winged lion symbolic of the once invincible British Empire. And with this bird, making its flight across the ocean. And given the feet of a man, and made to stand up. With this magnificent bird given the heart of a man.

Having no choice the people of the United State are prophetically that man with a heart. Our forefathers tagged him Uncle Sam. With God Almighty directing him to be benevolent. Made the most powerful of birds after it was given the heart of a man. With eagle like strength with its powerful wings and capturing feet of prey. America the defender of life, liberty and justice.

mega ton explosion

The old man is frail, and barely able to see, so his son brought his two grandsons up close to their grandfather. Joseph sensing the sacredness of the moment took the boys and they bowed respectfully before him. Then Joseph stood before his father placing Ephraim on his left side and the older boy Manasseh to his right.

But Jacob did something unusual, by crossing his arms and putting his right hand on the head of Ephraim, who was the youngest of the boys. Then placing his left hand on the head of eldest boy, Manasseh, his firstborn. Then as the instrument of Divine Providence, he anointed them; an act that would forever change world dynamics. Saying, “The God before whom walked my fathers Abraham and Isaac, the God who has been my Shepherd all my life to this very day, the Angel who delivered me from every evil, bless the boys. May my name be echoed in their lives, and the names of Abraham and Isaac, my fathers. May they grow covering the earth with their Children.

Joseph knowing what was going on was momentarily startled. Thinking that his aged and ill father was doing something he didn’t mean to do. So he took hold of his father’s hands and tried to reverse his father’s hands. And in the process said to his father, “That’s the wrong head father; the other one is my firstborn; place your right hand on his head.”

But Jacob resisted, and wouldn’t do it. Responding, “I know my son; but I know what I’m doing. Manasseh will also develop into a people, and he will be great. But his younger brother, Ephraim will be even greater for his descendants will grow into a multitude of nations. The he anointed both boys with the vapors of holy unction. The transference of the divine to human embodiment.

Authentic text Material, Genesis 48:12-20.

What had unfolded for the eons of time to digest was the announcement of Great Britain and her Commonwealth of Nations. From which a rebellious group called puritans, who would cross the ocean, and who would eventually become the United States.

different world order its origins

The sons, and their father were a little stunned at hearing from their beloved grandfather and father that he had had a face to face conversation with God Almighty. Who informed him that he had been chosen to be an instrument in the hands of divine providence to create a different world order.

Thinking that perhaps that the old guy in failing health was delusional. If Jacob sensed any of those concerns on their part, he completely ignored them. Unveiling the totality of their exchange this way.

As a people, you are going to be prosperous and in numbers large enough to make you a formidable inhibitor to opposing powers. They will have different plans for the order of the world. In contrast My plan is to make all nations prosperous through you. And when you are gone, your children will continue to perpetuate your inheritance from one generation to the next. Because, My decrees are everlasting.

Their plan through out the centuries is to partition the world in such away that one kingdom would be rich and powerful through a single dominant power. Leaving the rest of the worlds populous poor. Forcing one unprecedented war after another with the indent of winner being like you, Jacob. Once they discover what I’ve done for you. But it will not be because of the whys, and hows discussed yesterday.

Suddenly Jacob noticed Joseph’s sons, and asked, “who are the boys with you?” Joseph replied, “they are my sons who were born here in Egypt.” “Bring them to me,” he said, “so that I can bless them.” The old man now frail, and with failing eyesight making him nearly blind, brought the boys up close to their grandfather. Oh, Joseph, sire of nations, I never expected to see your face again, and now the Almighty has privileged me to see your children as well. So he kissed, and embraced his two grandsons
Authenticity is important, though engaged in story telling which was done for clarity purposes. Here are the actual text materials, Genesis 48:1-6; 8-11.

For tomorrow. What is to follow is what is making today’s world so chaotic.

wizards at work

It is good to be a observer of current events. Done by paying attention to the wizards of knowledge from academia to the palaces of journalism. To the barristers, and solicitors of legalism, to legislative bodies, to presidents and prime ministers and all other judges of opinion.

As they pontificate on how to resolve the Jewish/Arab Muslim stand off concerning a two state solution. Thinking that if they could resolve that issue there would be peace through out the Arab/Muslim world and Israel. Wrong!

World legislative bodies and the other pontificator’s are running out of foreberence. With rumblings being heard that the standoff can only be resolved by force. Move against Israel and force a two state solution upon the parties.

That seems to have validity which comes from one of God’s future tellers. His name, Zechariah, whose prophecy has been preserved for all wizards of knowledge to benefit from.

Speaking for the Al Mighty, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all surrounding people, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut to pieces though all nations of earth are gathered against it. In that day says the LORD, “I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness,” Zechariah 12:2-4a.

Wizardly failed! The best minds with global collaboration couldn’t bring about a two state solution for the Israeli, Arab/Muslim tumultuous failures. Most have heard it said, “Mother knows best.” In this instance it is said, God knows best. Because He preordained that the disputed lands would forever belong to the Jews.

The conversation for world reorganization between Jacob and Joseph started yesterday will continue tomorrow.

a will and testament history maker

His son and grandsons looked on as the old man spoke. God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me. Saying, “I’m going to make you prosperous and numerous, and I will make you a multitude of people, and will give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession. I’m adopting your two sons, who were born to you here in Egypt before I joined you; they shall have equal status with Reuben and Simeon. But any children born after are yours; they will come after their brothers in matters of inheritance,” Genesis 48:1-6.

Approximate inheritance date 1400 years before the birth of Christ. If the land was occupied by people other than Jews, they lost title to the property to the Jews by Jacob’s testament. Because, the testament was sanctioned by God Almighty.

It’s forever settled all of Palestine or Canaan the biblical termed used belongs to the offspring of Jacob. Despite conquerors, who came and possessed and then divided the lands. Declaring others to be the rightful owners of the land.

So here we are in the 21st century and Palestine is very much in dispute as to ownership. Few nations beside Israel recognizes Palestine as the lawful property of the Jews. Those other nations, who understand Canaan to be the property of the Jews are those nations who were once part of Great Britain’s Commonwealth of Nations. And the United States, who was born of Jewish stock. It’s what bonds Israel and the United States. Two states but one people. But their voices are being peeled away slowly, but in a sure manner. Leading to this colossal event with its fitting aftermath. Which will be a discussion, for tomorrow.

the originator

America was founded as a Christian nation because divine providence had so ordained it. Jesus had said that it was impossible for America to bear thornbushes because it was a good tree, i.e. Matthew 5:15-20. Proof. Look at the world. The United States has provided the world for centuries with humanitarian assistance and military security. More so than any other nation in the history of the world. And it’ll be authenticated with an exposition about opposing challengers.

Here’s a journey into the archives of divine providence. A son, Joseph, learns that his father is dying. So he, and his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim rush to visit the dying man. The information reaches Jacob, who is anxious to share with his son, and grandsons his last will and testament.

So the old man manages to strengthened himself enabling him to sit up on his bed.

When Joseph, and his sons arrived, Jacob wasted no time getting down to business. And as that business unfolds, it’ll become your business and mine. The problem is that that business has been ignored by most people. Decaying to the point of being rejected as irrelevant by the people and their government. When it comes to people and their government it’s particularly relevant to Americans and the United States government. Because we as a whole were the ones to bring the covenants made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to fruition.

This discussion is about Jacob, but key players in this drama are Joseph and his sons Manasseh and Ephraim. They are picturesque of all of us. Because they were to be the operatives that would make the covenants work for the betterment of humanity.

Continued tomorrow

tips for a different way

Time is precious and fly’s by. So here are a few highlights because a special breed of persons was and is being addressed. People having an urge to satisfy and express their spirituality for the betterment of humanity. But the church has failed them miserably, so they have either dropped out, or just go through the motions in a disinterested way.

It was asked, who make the best truth seekers? Often it goes this way, “I was found by those, who did not seek me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask of me.” See Romans 10:20. That experience was applicable to the Apostle Paul and many others before and after him. Including me and maybe you. Arguing that Paul was the greatest churchman ever to live. Because he, moved the planet from one paradigm to another. Ushering in a purposeful Christendom with his authorship of the book of Acts through to Hebrews. Master them and you’ll be good to go for purposeful living. Here are some absolutes for an effective Christ walk. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”Hebrews 11:1.

“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of the things which are visible.” See Hebrews 11:3.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” See Hebrews 11:6.

Wait for this, and when it comes you’ll have it all. See Romans 8:25!

the authenticator

Some think that Muslims are the bearers of bad fruit that must be cut down and cast into the fire. See Mathew 7:15-20. Then from the man, who saw it coming, and so announced it, “And the angel of the LORD said to her, … and you shall call his name Ishmael,” Genesis 16:11. Who would become the father of Islam. Aptly christened with this truth. And he shall be a wild man, his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presences of all his brethren. See Genesis 16:12. Proof positive from global observations. A global menace! With the sons and daughters of Muslims spreading Islamic evil wherever a breath is breathed. Because the angel of the LORD said to the boys mother, “I will multiply your seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for the multitude,” Genesis 16:10.

If Muslims in America were forthcoming they would publicly announce their design for America. Which is to have the flag of Islam flying over the White House. And that they thirst to punish non-Muslims in America, whom they accuse of being the worlds foremost criminal element. Because of the havoc they have fostered upon Muslim lands. Often through their proxy government Israel.

It is said that the Islamic Thinkers Society in New York City. Is a society waiting for the right time to rally Muslims to the streets. Who will then demand the establishment of Sharia law across America. Which they think is the surest way to remake the United States into a Islamic state.

America retaliation at your doorstep

Trump did it! As we all know, the U.S. France and England did what needed to be done in Syria. Many suspect that those nations can expect retaliatory consequences from an enemy that will not be defeated. ISSI synthesizers!

“Lets say only 1/100th of 1% of all Muslims are inclined toward terrorism. If there are 1.3 billion Muslims world wide, that’s 130,000 Muslim potential terrorists. And as we saw on 9/11, a handful of terrorists (less than 0.0000015% of the world’s Muslims) can do enormous damage; and terrorists are highly motivated lot, willing to die so others may be killed. The vast majority of Muslims may be lovely people, but that doesn’t mean America has nothing to fear from the ummah, ummah meaning community. Thus the core of the problem is not Americans’ ignorance but the enemy within Islam,” James Taranto, American columnist.

O Israel! Why do you not listen beloved, as My first love. “I, even I, am the LORD, and beside me there is no savior,” Isaiah 43:11. And O! America, child of Israel, why do you not continue to take advantage of Genesis 48:16; Romans 4:18? “So then brethren! We are not the children of the bondwoman. Hagar the devils wife and mother of Islam, but of the free Isaac, God’s promised one, Genesis 17:18-19; Galatians 4:31. Have you not learned that Ishmael son of the adulteress Hagar is evil? Genesis 16:11-12. And will be destroyed, Psalms 94:23?

Are you not up to it because the world will call you racist, and the obsessed ones of Islamophobia. But that’s okay because Jesus said it would happen, Matthew 24:9. But that’s okay, too, if one is able to meet the two requirements of, Mark 8:34, if not, than go the way of the many. But of the few, who are able, behold! I come quickly, and My reward is with Me to give to every person according, as their work shall be, Revelation 22:10. For we are the peacemakers, and the children of God, and the kingdom of heaven is ours, Matthew 5:9-10.

unhitch the buggy the ride is over

A tough Jew hating prosecutor, who knew how to rough up people and relished in their death. Got a taste of brutality when he was tossed to the ground and was blinded by his assailant.

He got over it and later identified himself as a prisoner of Jesus Christ. Using it as a term of endearment, as he explains what that expression meant. For this reason, “I, Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles.”

If indeed, you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you. How by revelation He made known to me the mystery. And if you have read it, you will understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ.

Which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets. That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel. Which I became a minister according to the gift of grace given to me by the effective working of His power.” See Ephesians 3:1-7.

So here is one of those mysteries explained in which we have a paradigm shift in regards to the all inclusive declaration of Jesus where He said, “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it,” See John 14:14. In yesterdays discussion it has been shared as to why it doesn’t work today.

Today we the less inclusive means of prayer whose results for you and me are determined by God Almighty. So here is that promised tonic with a good dose of spirits to enhance your sense of well being. “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplications with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” See Philippians 4:6. No all inclusiveness there because it’s all individualized.

Here is another mystery hidden in ages past and revealed by Paul. Promise by Jesus, who said, “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away. The Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.” See John 16:7.

And He is here, and here is the help the Spirit provides. “Likewise the Spirit helps with our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intersession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered He that searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is because He makes intersession for the saints according to the will of God.” See Romans 8:26-27.

Here is another mystery for the prayers combined confidence. “And the peace of God which passes all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus,” Philippians 4:7.

When you pray, you are not always going to get what you want. But you will experience, Philippians 4:7, manifesting itself in a peace that transcends human understanding. It’s an awareness that occurs over time, as people mature in spirituality. Spiritual growth is like physical growth. It happens over time and by experience.

truth telling made different

When some one says to you, “Ask anything of me and I will do it.” That’s a promise, and to protect ones credibility the pledge must be kept. It was Jesus, who made that declaration. Causing much disillusionment, when sincere Christians prayed such prayers that fell on deaf ears. While some stuck around, but bundled up with tons of doubt concerning their faith. With some disassociating themselves from Christ altogether. With few available to provide an explanation.

This padre has an explanation which hopefully will rekindle the interest of many to serve and act for Jesus. Do yourself a favor, and don’t get sucked backed into church orthodoxy.

Several discussion on the subject have been posted preveously. Like the one titled, “What Manner Of People Should We Be,” 12 April 18. Hopefully, this discussion will be an additional building block for greater Christ awareness. Hope you’ll buggy up and buckle in for perhaps a journey of a lifetime.

Your Bible is a an interesting and fascinating book. Giving the reader rich nuggets of truth to live by. For some that’s all they want, and it’s okay. But for others, they want a historical time line that addresses their curiosity about world events and how they change. With any possible impact upon their own destiny.

But with as many as 40 different authors making contributions to those books over more than a thousand years. Causing controversies and disputes among theologians and historians.

But it all got straightened out by one of the great artist of that transformation, and it was the Apostle Paul. Spend as much time as you can spare reading and studying his divinely inspired literature. And you’ll walk away Spirit filled and useful to Jesus. It’s a promise!

Here’s an example, Jesus said, “If you ask any thing in My name, I will do it.” See John 14:14. That all inclusiveness of His declaration is irrelevant today!
Doubt it? Then put it to the test. Here’s why it’ll fail. It was applicable only to the Jews, who were still being governed by Old Testament law.

The four gospels are a continuation of the Old Testament law. Jesus came to fulfill a long standing promise. Of the arrival of the Jewish Messiah, who would also establish His promised kingdom on this earth. Long story made short the Jews rejected Him and thus the kingdom has been postponed.

With the crucifixion of Jesus and His resurrection a new era moved across the planet. In the providence of time God attack a Jew hating prosecutor. Telling him, “Game change for you.” “You’ll going to become my voice to the Gentile world, and you will experience severe hardships as My voice. ” See Acts 9:1-15.

This Padre is available to teach such subject matters in the comfort of someones home or any other comfortable location. Like a library.

Tomorrow the prayer tonic that works

angelic encounters

The ways of Elijah’s Ravens, are best understood from yesterdays discussion because of their mysterious wonderment. Could they have been angels or God himself?

We know that birds when directed serve the interest of their Creator, like all of us do. We know that these Ravens were more than just ordinary birds. Because they were able to receive directives, think and react, and then obey them.

And astonishingly, they knew Elijah, and where able to find him. And could it be that in light of, 1 Kings 19:5-10, that it’s possible that the Ravens from the previous discussion were angels?

This is shared because of this padre’s fascination with angels. Because as a toddler, this padre had an angelic encounter through the personage of a woman. Who told me that I was to become a priest. For decades, she would appear looking after me. Especially, after a demon murdered by mother. I knew it, nobody else did, and I wasn’t talking, or they would have had me committed to an insane asylum.

Being called to be a priest, and being a priest are vastly different. The latter requires the birthing experience of Romans 10:9-10 and 1 Corinthians 5:17. That demon that killed my mother was determined to destroy me. And it almost succeeded, as I was well on my way as a willing participant in the deepest abyss of darkness imaginable. When unexpectedly, and not seeking deliverance, I was delivered. The presence of light drove me to my knees to confess my sins which is best described through Romans 10:9-10.

Upon rising the next morning, I knew something was very different. Securing a Bible, I began searching for answers, and when I found 2 Corinthians 5:17, I had found my answer.

Having said that, lets see where we find Elijah. Of all places, he’s sleeping under a tree. When he was touched by an angel, who spoke to him, 1Kings 19:7. And in verse 7, we discover that it happened a second time. During those times he ate and drank, this padre suspects Elijah consumed a supernaturally charged food. Because what he was about to undertake, was beyond his physical abilities. Which was a 40 day journey to the mountain of God. Only to be asked when he got there by the word of the LORD; “What are you doing here? And he answered, “I’m zealous for you.” The people are turning from your ways. Destroying everything that represents you, and what you expect from them. Going as far as to kill those who defend you, and only I remain.

For tomorrow, ancient lessons for a modern world, as the supernatural strikes.

Ancient lessons 4 a modern world as the supernatural stikes

Elijah after being told by an angel that he wasn’t man enough to make the 40 day journey without  eating a supernatural charged food, one suspects. Because after eating, Elijah successfully completes his journey. Only to have the word of the LORD ask, “What are you doing here?” Apparently his answer was accepted because Elijah was given a new directive.

But before addressing that directive, if you haven’t, it’s suggested that the reader study the previous discussions. As some of what appears in the above paragraph could be ambiguous to the reader.

Elijah was concerned over what was occurring because the trend was to absent God from the public forum. In order to accomplish that society went about killing those who stood for God. At one point, he tells God that things have gotten so bad that he stands alone in defending what God expects from the people, and that his own life is in danger.

And the word of the LORD, says, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice,” 1 Kings 19:11-12.

Think how terrifying it would be to know of winds so mighty that mountains were leveled in your lifetime and right before your eyes. Followed by earthquakes destroying large land masses which created impossible to control fires.

These truths stand out to be examined. What occurred happened before the LORD, as an observer. Because we are told that the LORD passed by, but had nothing to do with aftermath of each destructive force. Telling us that like the Ravens, even the elements serve and obey him without question.

It is only God’s most cherished creation man, to whom he gave freedom to choose that defies him, then and today. That was Elijah’s complaint! And everything that followed was a response to humanities defying of what, was and is, sacredly recorded by the word of the LORD.

And so it is, in our modern world. Natures violent eruptions are are supernatural strikes against an erring and defying people.

And then we have these words, “And after the fire a still small voice.” For Elijah, it was a new assignment, 15-16. And verse 18, Elijah is assured that 7,000 remain faithful.

For us the believing faithful, that still small voice speaks to each in a personal and specific manner. And we have the assurance that the gates of hell will not prevail against whatever that still small voice says to each and everyone of us. (Matthew 16:18)

From previous two discussions, and with this one, the mighty should be dumbfounded. With the menu’s of divine providence always prevailing. For tomorrow help comes from where it’s least expected. Because God, has a date with destiny.

what manner of people ought we 2 b

The heavens exploded with a loud noise and everything on the earth will be burned up. So the aged emissary for Jesus asked this question, “Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of a persons ought we to be?” Peter says, “Be in holy conduct and godliness.” See 2 Peter 3:10-11. So how is that best accomplished?

First, who make the best truth seekers? With truth being synonymous with Jesus. Those who have had this experience do it best. “I was found by those, who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask of Me.” See Romans 10:20. Because by being outside of Christendoms snare one is not tarnished by the nonsensical tirades of the modern day church. In other words, you start fresh, and learn how to put together a meaningful Christ experience.

I argue that the greatest churchman to have ever lived was the Apostle Paul. He ushered in purposeful Christendom with his authorship of the book of Acts, and his fourteen other epistles. Starting with Romans and ending with Hebrews.

Paul was a total outsider for a long time. Because he was first to preach Christ crucified, buried and resurrected from the dead.The others did not. They were still anticipating the arrival of their Messiah, who would establish His earthly kingdom. They were Old Testament people, and functioning under the law with all its ceremonial features. They did not preach Christ crucified, buried and resurrected. That’s what Peter was referring to when he said of Paul, “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of things, hard to understand.”

According to Peter, one of the twelve who traveled with Jesus during His earthly visit. We discover this recording, “And consider the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation. As also our beloved Paul, according to the wisdom given to him has written to you. As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of things, in which are hard to understand. Which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.” See 2 Peter 3:15-16.

Things were about to change as Paul established churches and not synagogues. Prior to the time of Paul, God’s focus was upon the Jews. But the Jews rejected Christ, though he was the one they were waiting for. So God turned His focus upon the Gentiles. As recorded by Paul were he says, “For this reason, I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles.” See Ephesians 3:1.

a buggy ride worth taking

When the hoof hits it the ground, the buggy gets going. The Christ buggy never got going because what is to follow wasn’t for you or me. Instead what is to follow implement those instructions given by Jesus. Experiencing failure don’t be discouraged, or think that you have proof that this Jesus stuff is misleading, thus hypocritical.

We find Jesus saying, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also, and greater works than these he will do because I go to the Father.” And, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” See John 14:12-14.

Concerning verses thirteen and fourteen. Succinctly, Jesus said it to his disciples in preparation for the His kingdom on this earth. When the Jews rejected Jesus, the Father prepared for a new age, our age. Forfeited also was that all inclusive, “Ask anything of me and I will do it.” Creating lots of disillusionment through out Christendom.

What was not covered was the Christ statement concerning works. Jesus did grant His disciples or apostles miracle working wonders. It’s recorded in Acts 2:43 in this manner, “Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.”

Here is one of them. It’s nine in the morning, and time to head to the temple for morning prayers. As they approached the temple a certain man crippled from birth was being carried, and placed at the temple entrance. He was there every day begging for money.

As Peter, and John were about to enter the temple he begged for money. Both men looked directly at him with Peter saying, “Look at us.” The crippled man focused his sight upon them expecting a handout. But instead of offering a handout, Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I’ll give to you. Authoritatively Peter commanded, “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”

With compassion, Peter took him by the right hand and lifted him up. And immediately, his feet and ankle bones received strength. Being able to stand he started leaping. Able now to walk he entered the temple with them. Creating quite a raucous as he continued to walk and leap while praising God. See Acts 3:1-8.

Because healing wonders were not all inclusive like the Jesus phrase, “Ask anything of Me and I will do it.” Healing can occur today but is not a gift randomly made available.
