Two men, who hated each other were on the same ship, one sitting in the stern, the other in the bows. A storm came on, and when the ship was on the point of sinking the man in the stern asked the steersman which part of the ship would go under first. On being told that the bows would go first. “I do not mind dying myself,” he said, “if I can see my enemy die before me.”

Many people do not care what happens to themselves, so long, as they see their enemies suffer first. (Fables Of Aesop-Penquin Classics-“Hating Unto Death).

The Christ way the better way, “Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. May the Lord repay him according to his works,” 2 Timothy 4:14, with this promise, “To Me belongs vengeance and recompense. Their foot shall slip in due time, for the day of their calamity is at hand. And the things to come hasten upon them!” Deuteronomy 32:35.

preparing for 2020

Some issues live on forever, so it seems. It’s just a matter of believing in ones ability to make sure ones issues have a prevailing outcome. The late, Studs Terkel, 16 May 1912 – 31 October 2008, saw prevailing as a matter of attitude, for he declared, “Ordinary people are capable of doing extraordinary things.”

Perhaps at no time during modern times, has the United States been in greater need of having ordinary people accomplishing the extraordinary.

The gamut of choices are like ripe fruit dangling from the branches of trees. Which, piece of fruit to pick first? It doesn’t matter! Because it’ll be sure to be one representing an unparalleled challenge, if American democracy is to survive.

Here’s on of them. The peoples vote was ignored because Hillary won the national vote by nearly three million votes over Trump. Though trump lost the election, he was awarded the presidency because of the nations antiquated Electoral College.

How did the nation get stuck with such a system, that destroys the very foundation of democracy which is one person, one vote. It occurred because the nations founding fathers didn’t think ordinary people were capable of making such an extraordinary decision, when electing a president.

So they allowed the states to elect electors for their state. Five hundred nineteen of them, then each state, would vote. And whatever, candidate secures 270 votes within the Electoral College is declared to having been elected president.

Two of the nations last three presidents won the presidency in the Electoral College, despite having lost the popular vote. Both were Republican candidates, meaning that the majority of voters were democrats.

Fourteen states, and the District of Columbia have successfully gotten their jurisdiction to become by law part of a movement to bypass the Electoral College. Each has pledged to give their votes to the presidential candidate who won the popular vote. That movement is known, as, The National Vote Interstate Compact.

Jurisdictions within that compact now have a total of 189 Electoral College votes. The compact will formally go into effect legally once the jurisdictions secure a combined 270 votes in the Electoral College. After that is accomplished, democracy in America will be realized for the first time. Because the voting public, will finally have what has been erroneously fabricated, one vote per person nationally. Securing two hundred seventy votes out of five hundred nineteen votes is not democratic. The Electoral College from its inception was designed to suppress the will of the people.

Of course their is resistance for various selfish reasons. Florida is one of those jurisdictions. Elected state Republicans are the majority party in the state legislature. Joining the compact would mean their 29 Electoral College votes would have to be given to whatever candidate wins the popular vote.

Good bye trump, if you survives impeachment. You won’t, if freedom denier, Republican Mitch McConnell agrees to a fair senate trial. However, its nothing new for working America to see democracy denied.

Twice in the last three presidential election cycles the loser has been declared the winner and both were Republicans. Republicans serve the interest of the elite.

Always in nondemocratic ways Republican goals are to deny working people the power of one vote one person. Think what that would mean in the work place, for health care, pension benefits and whole repertoire of other benefits.

Clergy people get sick, die, vacation, retire or move on. This padre duly ordained is available to temporarily fill that vacancy. Perhaps teach a Sunday school class. Share in an adult Bible study group. You select the topic from the traditional calendar right through to the corridors of nontraditional. Formal churches are businesses though most deny it. What ever perspective about the churches primary purpose. One thing is certain, they have to keep the pews full with people, so that bank accounts are replenished. Forcing the clergy to avoid controversial topics. With me that’s not a problem. If the flock get work up, no problem because its easy to say good bye. Then on the other hand, they might respond enthusiastically. Wouldn’t be the first time that this Padre would have learned of such responses. After all, there’s got to be a reason why church attendance is down. Nothing ventured nothing gained.

Some readers despise organised religion for a conundrum of reasons. But are very interested in specific religious topics. So select a topic of interest from the alleys of the somewhat traditional right through to corridors of issues often avoided.

With a degree also in political science a whole repertoire of current issues can be selected. From the cradle of the traditional arena through to a galaxy of topics that don’t get enough attention, but should, like the one addressed today. Take a bold step by laboring for the enactment of the National Vote interstate Compact nationally. Resulting in democracy becoming an American experience.

Christmas Blues

Harsh words from the nation first president for people not grasping the sweeping evidence of Divine Providence during the long and tedious celebration of our Christmas pageant.

“The hand of providence has been so conspicuous in all this, he must be worse than an infidel that faith, and more than wicked that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligations,” President George Washington.

The only explanation for such a tragedy comes from a close of associate of Jesus during their lifetimes. Remember that it was John, who introduced the symbolic supernatural significance of baptism by baptizing Jesus. Baptism is a renunciation of past, present attitudes, and behaviors offensive to God the Father. And as, Jesus reemerged from the water it signaled a life to be lived in conformity to His Fathers principles.

So John wrote, “The light shines in the darkness, and darkness did not comprehend it.” Text John 1:5. So that is the tragedy of Christmas.

No one, is what, they were destined to be, in fulfillment of this, our passing Christ seasonal celebration. Until this why is resolved. Perhaps histories greatest questions was asked by Jesus, “Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. (Why) Because You are of your father the Devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand for the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his resources; for he is a liar, and the father of it. Because I (Jesus) tell you the truth (about Christmas) you do not believe it.” Texts: John 8:43-45. Emphasis by insertions, this Padre.

And if the above from Jesus is yours to understand, then a ‘hallelujah’ or two is in order. Pass it on to others, with hope, in your own way, that they to, like us might come to know what Christmas was meant to be.

Clergy people get sick, die, vacation, retire or move on. This padre duly ordained is available to fill that vacancy. Maybe teach a Sunday school class. Perhaps share in an adult Bible study group. Select a topic from the corridors of the conventional right through to the galaxy of topics seldom addressed.

This is also offered to the many people, who do not want any thing to do with organized church. Some may go as far as to despise any semblances of organized religion. Select a secular topic of interest, as this Padre also has a degree in political science.

what’s at stake

The holiday season presses on, however, our duties were established on that very first Christmas. Here’s a summary of them that represent some everyday aspects for observing Christmas in a reverenced way.

A disappearing attribute through out our blessed United States. Highlighted by, donald j trump, and passed onto his lapdogs the Republican congressional cronies.

Teaching us how Divine Providence and His agents like Gabriel intersect with humanity. Centuries later this was recorded for us concerning angels, “For He shall give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up in their hands. Lest you dash your feet against a stone.” See Psalms 91:11-12; and, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation.” See Hebrews 1:14.

Such angelic occurrences can happen without our awareness. Like something unfortunate that should have happened but didn’t. Sometimes people just walk away shaking their heads in wonderment. Not me!

Christmas represents our connection to the world of the supernatural. Today mainly from our scriptures because our scriptures are supernatural in themselves.

Those scriptures are like no other words ever written. Because, they represent the living breathing God within us. With God continuously revealing the dependability of those written words.

As, biblical events previously announced occur. Recorded this way, “Remember the former things of old. For I am God. And there is no other, I am God, and there is none like me! Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things not yet come.” Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasures.'” Texts: Isaiah 46:9-10.

Examples besides the birth of Jesus. The statehood of Israel in 1948. With Judea and Samaria now belong to Israel. With Jerusalem now recognized, as Israel’s capital city.

Somethings yet to come. Jesus returns and rules from Jerusalem. The very throne of His father, King David. Texts: Matthew 1:11; Matthew 19:28-29. I will be there, will you?

What is it God wanted Mary to know? This, “For with God nothing is impossible!” Texts: Luke 1:34-38. It’s the miracle of Christmas for us also.

Christmas is all about spirituality, duty, reverence and responsibility. Emulated through Mary and Joseph. Picturesque of ordinary people, who become enablers of the seemingly impossible.

Clergy people get sick, die, vacation, retire or move on. This Padre, duly ordained is available to fill that vacancy temporarily. Perhaps teach a Sunday school class. Share in an adult Bible study group. You select the topic from the conventional through to the unconventional.

Some readers despise organized religion but are interested in specific religious topics. If your withing that growing group of people. Selection of topics is the same as above.

climatic events past to future

From a history book that employed only authentic historians. Because, they were all chosen supernaturally by Divine Providence. Giving us a verifiable historical record.

Gabriel, a ranking authority of the common wealth within the kingdom of God. Was assigned a mission and Gabriel’s mission was recorded by a former tax collector. Who found a better way of life than collecting taxes for the Roman empire. From outward appearance, he gave up an office of authority and thus prestige. He did that voluntarily because once a life is touched supernaturally that touch becomes a craving not an obligation.

Here’s what our history reveals. Gabriel now earth bound approached an extra ordinary woman know as Mary. This conversation was recorded not because the former tax collector was there because he wasn’t. It was given to him by Divine Providence.

Because it was important, for we earthlings to better understand the real significance of their Christmas pageant, which now has an annual celebratory life of two weeks.

All Mary knew from Gabriel was that she would you give birth to a son, and told to  name the child Jesus.

What Mary didn’t know at His birth, but must have sensed as He matured was that her Son would become an extraordinary man. The most difficult experience for a mother to endure is her child’s  premature death. Especially, so after observing His cruel murder. And after His murder becoming aware of His return to life. What she didn’t know was that someday He would inherit the very throne which King David once ruled from.

With King David, somehow mysteriously for mortals to understand was that King David was His father through divine providence.

Though from a human perspective the two were separated by centuries of time and history. Making it impossible for us to comprehend how it could be.

Adding to the complexity for us is that he ruled from Jerusalem, Israel’s capital city in ancient times. But lost to the Jews for centuries. But in our 21st century Jerusalem is again recognized as Israel’s capital city, Which also is one of road signs, that this age of history is nearing ever so close to its end.

And that world history will become a fiery tinder box of suffering, as one last attempt will be made to do, what Hitler failed to accomplish.

With that climatic conclusion Jesus will rule the world for the Jews, as their promised Messiah and Savior. And so will we, as gentiles, if we like the Jews recognize Jesus as our Savior. And even more incomprehensible for we mortals is that all who had died, now are alive, and apart of this the grandest of all celebrations life with Jesus forever. Because His kingdom, is said to be one without end.

Who ever would have thought that our Christmas pageant would own such a galley of significance for this season, and any future ones, as Divine Providence allows.

So, what are we to do with all this history? Do as Mary did during her lifetime by declaring, let all this be according to your word! And take Gabriel final declaration to Mary seriously,”With God nothing is impossible.”

Clergy people get sick, vacation, retire or move on. This padre duly ordained is available to fill that vacancy. Perhaps teach a Sunday school class. Share in an adult Bible study group. You select the topic from the ordinary, or from the very unusual.

Not all readers are associated with organized religion. Some really despise organized religion. Blaming them, for many problems confronting America, and the world community. Frankly, I share those same sentiments. Nevertheless, there’s that spark that wants to be ignited saying that there’s something about Divine Providence and the supernatural. So here’s an opportunity to select a topic of your choice for exploration.

In that this Padre also has a degree in political science. A whole repertoire of topics can be selected. From the cradle of traditional thoughts. Right through to the galaxy of the unconventional.

sigh of relief

For many, Christmas, is over with a sigh of relief! But it shouldn’t be because there are some everyday aspects of Christmas. Within the providence of time God sent an angel to visit a rather remarkable woman named Mary.

Gabriel made some rather astonishing remarks to her. Telling her that she would conceive in her womb a baby. Instructing her that she should name the baby Jesus. Gabriel reported to Mary that her baby would not be an ordinary child. Saying, that Jesus would inherit the destiny of history inaugurated centuries ago.

Revealing that this baby was destined to inherit the household of King David, the ancient King of Israel. And not that of Joseph, His surrogate father. And that the throne that Jesus would inherit means, that Jesus will someday rule from the capital city of King David which is the city of modern day Jerusalem.

It’s not a matter of speculation, but rather, one of divine declaration. Announced years before His birth, and recorded, in the eternal ledger of birth records. “The genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham.” See Matthew 1:1.

What’s the hot spot of the world? Jerusalem! The Arab/Muslims people want Jerusalem to be their capital city. The world community mostly agrees that the Palestinians deserve a homeland. And they are urging Israel to allow for Jerusalem to be a shared city. It may or may not occur, but if it occurs, it’ll be short lived. Because all of Canaan, belongs to Israel by divine proclamation, and not just Jerusalem. Because of the covenant, God made with Abraham. See Genesis 17:4-8.

So during 2020, or thereafter, the conflict over those disputed rights will intensify. Exploding beyond our comprehension. It has to because Jesus said so!

That really represents what our Christmas pageant is all about with enormous historical significance.

The following takes us deeper into the future depths of such a magnificent pageantry. The forces of evil not observable by most will work to deny any and all such occurrence!

But those of us secure in Christ, this is our future Christmas pageantry. Jesus announcing, “Assuredly I say to you that in the generation, when the Son of Man sits on His throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel! And every one, who has left house, or brothers or sisters, fathers, mothers or wife, husband, or children, or lands for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. But many, who are first will be last, and the last first” See Matthew 19:28-30.

Christians! Understand, and prepare, and claim your destiny.

a family experience

Christmas finally it’s here for millions of people. Who will observe the day mostly from the perspective of halls decked with holly and mistletoe. And of course, along with all the other festivities associated with the day.  Unaware or unwilling to know that Christmas is an every day celebration with the beginning of each new day.

But before going on, it should be understood that seeing the house decked with holly. Along with flashing lights with ample mistletoe is very magical with its impact being most relaxing. Merry making is part of life and has a necessary and proper place in our lives because it’s a way of recuperation.

Although difficult because of work, and other responsibilities, people should find time for some form of merry making everyday.

There is a supernatural equivalent to carnal merry making. It’s can be experienced by serving oneself Holy Communion. Because this holy sacrament helps rejuvenate our souls. Done in this manner as a prayer. Take a cracker, and break it, eat it, and repeat, “This is your body broken for me. Take some wine or grape juice, and drink it, and say, “This your blood shed for the remission of my sins.” Concluding by saying, “Amen, or So be it.” It’s a scared experience to be reverenced and not to be taken lightly. See 1 Corinthians 11:23-32.

We are all specimens of sacredness which includes body, soul and spirit. Merry making for the soul (mind) can be accomplished by carefully and slowing reading our holy scriptures. Perhaps just a few scriptures or just one scripture being sufficient. It’s more about being in a meditative state of mind. Here’s two soul filling foods. “But if we hope for what we can not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.” Text: Romans 8:25. Here’s another, “He/she who is slow to anger is better than the mighty. And he/she, who rules their spirit than he/she who takes a city.” Text: Proverbs 16:32. They are absorbed into the body just like ones favorite Christmas foods. They become the substances of great sustainability. They are digested, and make us what we want and are destined to be. Meditate in terms of needing something to go your way, Romans 8:25. And Proverbs 16:32, as the perfect antidote for troublesome situations.

Enjoy the day, and may the Christ of Christmas bless, satisfy and provide for you this day and everyday. Text: Jude 25.

on the eve of the day lets talk power to truth

The birth of Jesus signals that there always was, and will always be, a union between God and man. So that we might be like Him, He entered this world born of natural means through Mary. He was the eternal Christ, made flesh, and blood just like you and me. Becoming a remarkable person superior to all others. From His earliest years He was preeminently God conscious, God occupied. With a persistence awareness of His destiny. Because He was completely absorbed into a Father Son consciousness. Its through Jesus that we are able to understand our responsibility to God the Father. For we are one by the baptism of Christ and cup He drank from.

With our baptism by water immersion representing the taking of His ways upon ourselves. To the drinking of His cup, as our declaration to perhaps our consequential services to His causes.

That’s the God preferred way for us, as we think the closing days of 2019. And contemplated, the spiritual awareness waiting for us during 2020.

stranger in town

Is there any value to Christmas apart from corporate conglomerate profits and consumer spending? Of course! Gift exchanging, merry making, and clever of indoor and outdoor decorations. And accompanied, by all those delicious Christmas dinners. With plenty left overs for days to come.

With the heavens through the personage of God the Father responding with two very intriguing questions. Who has believed our report? And to whom is the way of the LORD revealed? With both questions being answered as follows.

For He shall grow up before Him like a tender plant, and like a root out of dry ground; He has no appearance of attractiveness; and when see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.

He becomes a person who is rejected by society. And a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.

People hid their faces from Him, and they despised Him showing no respect.

Through it all, He never abandoned His mission. By always being willing to bear personal griefs. By making their sorrows His personal griefs. Nevertheless, no one showed Him any sympathy. Instead they found Him to be offensive, and thereby, punished by God. Society failed to grasp that He was experiencing all of that because of societies transgressions against God. They failed to understand that by those very stripes, they were spared their rightful suffering, and punishment, and were healed.

Discussion developed using the texts found in Isaiah 53:1-5.

twinkling above u

Twinkle twinkle little star how I wonder who you are? What follows is come of who I am, so if I sit atop your tree think of me forever. Because I have some secrets to share with you.

Ever wonder, says I atop your tree why I twinkle on the 25th in December?

No one knows my birth date because its a family secret. If you modern day peoples haven’t gotten the message, then here’s an I opener.

In His day, as well as ours, governments are naughty. So with Mary and the baby Jesus in hiding for fear that the government would kill him. Thinking that there had to be a way to celebrate His birth and sneak one past the government. Now there’s a novel challenge for His authentic followers today.

And there was I, you see says I, twinkling atop your tree. Late December was the time that the Roman government allowed Romans to celebrate Saturnalia. It was a Roman festival in late December to honor the god Saturn. So they celebrated the holiday with marvelous festivities with a whole lot of merry making. Complete with fancy banquets and the exchanging of gifts.

And O, how happy Rome was because governments then, and now, love to keep the focus on the dark side, away from the light. And so says I twinkling atop your tree, so does yours! But what many have not learned, says I twinkling atop your tree. Is that America is God’s city upon a hill, and like me a light to be protection from the darkness.

But to the point, honoring the god Saturn, the deity of darkness served us well. And maybe it’ll do the same for you. Like us, and you, someday, it’ll take ingenuity and bravery at necessary times to survive the darkness. It’s an inborn Jesus trait that we Christians inherited.

Cause says I, a top your tree twinkling. To be a Christ worshiper in those days was dangerous, not like your says I, in America. Unless the Devil, or one of his fallen angels known as demons gets you. Because Christians were being vigorously persecuted by the Romans. Like your government says I, atop your tree twinkling. Who reveal God’s secrets in order to make a better world. That to you a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulders. And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.

Some think that this celebration of Saturnalia lasted up to a week. Like the celebration of your Christmas for most says I, atop your tree twinkling. But this twinkle has a message from the family of Jesus, revolt! Darkness is sweeping the land and the light is in danger. Don’t let darkness stop my bright twinkle, says Jesus. Because that’s the Christmas story.

Here’s a secret from His family. The winter solstice was moving towards the greater light. And says, I atop your tree twinkling. Those who knew that a Savior had been born. Also knew that He was the passing darkness of the winter solstice, as it moved towards the light. Because Saturnalia was really the celebration of the unconquerable Son. Says I, appreciate this, as I twinkle atop your tree. Darkness, and death will always give way to light and life.

Atop your tree I share twinkling ever so bright. We did the 25th thing because we were being vigorously persecuted by the Romans. Light can always use darkness to its advantage. We wanted to mark His birth, but the cost was already great. Some of us were beaten, imprisoned, tortured and beheaded. So it was best to slip among the darkness, and thus mock the darkness, by celebrating the birth of our Christ. And another reason, why I twinkle upon your tree, is that we knew all about merry making. So party up you, Christ souldiers, in honor of His birth and triumphs. With the best yet to come.

Now I know you to know His actual birth date. So very sorry, as I said at the beginning, it’s a family secret. After all, we concluded, its more important to concentrate upon the Christ message. Which is ruin to ruin darkness by exposing it to light. So go get um you people of Christmas. And! Make your Savior proud.

So now you know, why I want you to remember me for ever, as I atop your tree twinkle. Glory to God because we have a victory message of light to celebrate. Which we will, after some consequential battles, but this we know now, “Among the god’s there is none like You, O Lord; nor are there any works like Your works. All nations, whom You have made shall come and worship before You, o Lord, and shall glorify Your name. For You are great, and do wondrous things; You alone are God,” Psalms 86:8-10.

And as you take me down, and should I manage a dimming twinkle, would you think of me to be just about a burnt out bulb. Hope not, but if so, know that twinkling His message is your job season to season. The Christ way, and darkness be dammed in all its Saturnalia forms.

good bye donald and cronies

Strange as it may be, Christmas in its own way is an everyday occurrence. Involving the natural and the supernatural. So first, here’s a taste of the natural. For Mary, and their son Jesus, Joseph plays a surrogate role as provider for his family. Family, and responsibility are aspects of Christmas to be valued. Exemplified by Joseph, and the Mary’s of our modern world. Which extends, beyond Christmas day and makes a circular journey.

The supernatural always intersects with the natural of human nature. Most are unaware of this supernatural / natural phenomenon. For the majority of families, it just happens. Probably because of a complete lack of interest because this phenomenon moves across our time line very slowly. And at the end, makes a sudden burst to complete the circle of the calendar.

With families being tossed into the madness of another Christmas season. Absent all the lessons from the natural / supernatural that should should have learned. Jesus is always hopeful, that through another cycle of the Christmas pageant, all its lessons will be learned, and then digested spiritually. Making for better people, communities, and nation.

America is going in the wrong direction. As the natural with its apparent superior digestive powers, is destroying the supernatural. Which will make for some very turbulent times for families, nation and the world community.

Blessed are those, who understand this statement. As America goes, so goes the world. That’s not just a euphemism, it’s a supernatural declaration. Rejected by more, and more people, which will only make wrong right by legislation. Making the good old days a footnote in history. The natural calls it social progress, but the supernatural calls it death.

A Christmas Carol

Yesterdays discussion featuring Hannah, a 10th century B.C. prophetess gave us a complete Christmas pageantry. Summed Up with this Christmas expression. “I rejoice in Your salvation!” “And, He will give strength to His king (Jesus), and exalt the horn (strength) of His anointed.” Texts: 1 Samuel 2:1d; 10d-e.

Long after Hannah, another woman arrived with the same message. Pretty much echoing the same prophetic story as Hannah. And Mary said, “My soul  does magnify  the LORD, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded the low estate of His maidservant; for behold, from henceforth all nations shall call me blessed. For He has done great things; and holy is His name. And His mercy is on those, who fear Him from generation to generation.” Texts: Luke 1:46-50.

Not many associate Christmas with world affairs, but that’s what verses 51-53 are about. “For He has shown strength with His arm. He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty.”

Historians are still amazed, as the nations greatest generation, World War Two veterans. Overcame some seemingly insurmountable odds to turn the tide of defeat into victory. Perhaps with the Normandy invasion being the greatest from, 06 June 1944 – 01 September 1944.

Because from the cold waters, as the troops valiantly climbed treacherous mountains, as open targets from above, to send the Germans into permanent retreat.

And in the Pacific, the battle for Iwo Jima from, 19 February 1945 – 26 March 1945.

American victories occurred because of Luke 1:51-52. “He has shown strength with his arms.He has scattered the proud with the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.”

But in the end, for a spell America’s enemies might be exalted. Mary capsules it this way, “He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty,” Luke 1:53. America is not the humble Christ fearing, and Christ honoring of World War Two. And no doubt America will pay for dues for her treachery.

Our Christmas pageantry is really about, Luke 1:54-55, “He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy. As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed forever.” And if you are Christ’s, then you are the seed of Abraham, and heir’s according to the promise,” Galatians 3:29.

Sometimes God’s wrath becomes necessary in order to appreciate His fruitful bounties. And that is part of the untold Christmas Carol.

And, the people be dammed! What about restructuring the Supreme Court. Select your topic, and expect a heated presentation. Everything about America is structured to make life hard and difficult for working people. Enuf is Enuf!

 

christmas story untold

A women centuries ago gave us this Christmas story. It is filled with gifts to be treasured and avoided.

Christmas can’t be understood apart from Jewish history. Because we have it written, as such, “And if you are Christ’s, then you are of Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Text: Galatians 3:29.

Most understand that Christmas has been commercialized, and serves as a season for gigantic corporate conglomerate revenues.

Christmas is really about God’s desired abundance for us in so many ways. But the Christmas season also has a tragic down side, resulting in the abundance and God’s wrath. Depending upon ones individual personal choices, or national choices made by nation states.

For Israelis, this abundance of wealth or wrath has been a roller coaster ride between the two. Christians have not fared much better over the centuries. Except for two other extra ordinary nations. Great Britain, and the United States. But things are changing, as both nations are slipping more and more towards God’s wrath. But not by default, but by deliberate choice.

Hannah shared this Christmas story with the world with these words as a woman of prayer. Perhaps Hannah didn’t understand the duality of her words, Which may also be applicable, when we pray. Gift makers for individuals, families, nation and beyond to other nations. “My heart rejoices in the LORD, my horn (strength) is exalted in the LORD. I smile at my enemies because I rejoice in Your salvation.

Here Hannah gave the world her prophetic awareness of the our LORD Jesus Christ. She goes on to declare, “No one is holy like the LORD. There is none beside You, Nor is there any rock like our God.”

Followed by this warning, “Talk no more, so proudly; let no arrogance come from your mouth, for the LORD is the God of knowledge, and by Him actions are weighed.

Hannah’ s prophetic Christmas story hails these bounties upon God’s faithful. The bows of mighty men are broken. And those, who stumble are girded with strength.

She went on to counsel. Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread. And the hungry, have ceased to hunger. Even the barren have born seven, and she, who has many children has become feeble.

The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to the grave, and brings up. The LORD makes poor and makes rich; He brings  low and lifts up. He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the beggar from the ash heap. And makes them inherit the throne of glory.

The pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and He has set the world upon them. He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked shall be silent in darkness.

For by strength no person shall prevail. The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; from heaven He will thunder against them. The LORD will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength His saints and exalt horn (strength) of His anointed.” Scriptural texts: 1 Samuel 2:1-10.

season 4 gift exchanging

During the Christmas season some worthy expressions for Christendom to consideration. If we, Christians respond in the affirmative, shouldn’t the forth coming prompts make America and the world  very different?

“A son honors his father. A servant his master. If I am a Father, where is my honor? And if I am a Master where is My honor? And if, I am a Master, where is the fear of Me? Says the LORD of Hosts to you” Texts: Malachi 1:6a.

We all need to assemble our own action plans in response to His critique. Making sure that we gift our Christ of the season with our humble gratitude and adoration. And in return, here’s one of His many seasonal gifts just for us.

His desired gift from Christendom. “Oh, that you would give thanks to Me for My goodness. For all My wonderful works done on your behave.” And in response, His gift to us. “For I satisfy the longing soul, and fill the hungry soul with goodness.” Developed from Psalms 107:8-9.

Clergy people get sick, vacation, retire or move on. This Padre duly ordained is available to fill that vacancy temporarily. Or perhaps teach a Sunday school class, or an adult Bible study group. Exploring topics chosen by you. From the very conventional, or ones deep into the corridor of topics seldom explored.

For example, David distressed, and praying raised this interesting issue. “Among the gods there is none like You, O LORD; nor are there any works like Your works.” Texts: Psalms 86: 8-9.

And, “Now there was a day, when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan was with them.” Text: Job 1:6.

Then this, “God stands in the congregation of the mighty. He judges among the Gods.” And is rebuked, “How long will you judge unjustly, and show partially to the wicked? And challenged, Defend the poor and the fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; free them from the hand of the wicked.” Texts: Psalms 82:1-4.

A galore of topics to explore. Available to expand upon one of them or all of them. Arrangements made through the Contact Us link on my Home page. Living room conversations work well, as do other forums where people can gather.

facade of islam

In the United States, like elsewhere in the world, people are accepting the facade of Islam. What most Americans fail to understand is that Islam has pretty much taken over some American cities.

And there like any Middle East or European country, just criticizing Islam is very dangerous. It’ll only get worse globally and in the United States.

As modern day Europe has taught us by example. Which is to surrender to Islam by peaceful capitulation to Islamic demands. Or, experience one terror attack, after another. One of the Islamic tenets of capitulation is for governing authorities to establish laws forbidding criticism of Islam.

Then as Muslims capture city after city and state after state, then critics will be jailed or killed. And as, the global community knows death at the hands of Muslims is a torturous death.

With institutions like churches, that stand out in opposition to Islam being burned to the ground. With the only remembrance of them is a pile of ashes. Which is a growing occurrence globally for the Christian communities, but for now escaping American churches.

In the united States, Christians and Jews need to come to grips with the facade of Islam. Because, our lives, and institutions will become more endangered, as the Muslim population grows. Sometime in the future Islam will become the dominate religion in the United States. With more, and more Muslims holding elected offices through out the country. Now is not the time to pussy foot around. It’s time learn the truth about Islam. And to, develop strategies both offensively and defensively. But always, functionally in non-violent ways.

And make no mistake, Islamic determination for global supremacy is not something Muslims think is beyond their ability. Those who think otherwise will find themselves as servants, who will be taxed under Muslim rule. Because Muslims see non-Muslims as second class citizens and their servants.

Christians are not suppose to be silent onlookers in the presences of evil. Become Islamic smart, so you can become Christian ready to defend church and country. The best offense is accomplished through a superior defense.

This Padre is able to share the absolute danger Muslims present to a free, and democratic republic like the United States. Discover the non-violent tactics for defensive and offense warfare, and how to apply them.

hate to friendship

There was this guy, who hated any and all, who had any association with, the Way, people who were a threat to Judaism.

There was a movement sweeping the country encouraging Jews to abandon Judaism. And join this new sect founded by Jew, whom they and the Romans had murdered. And the way they killed Him, he was certain that would put an end to this troubling sect.

To his amazement that sect was becoming more of a threat to his nation. Especially their religious ideologies and practices. So he determined something had to be done. Though he had the authority to deal with this bunch of terrorists independently, he thought it best to get the support of the entire ruling authorities. He successfully got his writs for arrest to bring those of the Way, whether men or women to Jerusalem for trial.

As he journeyed, Saul was approaching Damascus. Where a synagogue was located, that was notorious for being disrupted by agents of the Way.

When suddenly, a light shone from heaven. Causing Saul to fall to the ground. Hearing an unfamiliar voice asking, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” Shocked, Saul asked, “Who are you?” The voice replied, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.” Trembling and astonished, he said, “Lord what do you want me to do?” Jesus responded, “Go into the city, and you shall be told what you must do.”

Saul’s associates, who journeyed with him stood speechless hearing a voice but seeing no one. So the contingent made their way to Damascus. Saul was there three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank.

Now there was a certain disciple of the Way named Ananias. And Jesus came to him in a vision. Instructing him to go to a street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarus. He is praying. And in a vision, he has seen one called Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight.

Ananias shocked said,  “Lord, Saul is dangerous, and I have heard much about him. How he has harmed your saints in Jerusalem.” Jesus responded, “Go for he is a chosen vessel of Mine before the Gentiles and the children of Israel.”

And Ananias went his way, and entered the house; and laying his hands on him said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came. Has sent me that you may receive your sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”

Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized.

Immediately he preached Christ in the synagogues that He is the son of God.  As Saul continued to regain his strength, he confused the Jews at Damascus by proving that this Jesus was the Christ. And as could be expected, the Jew plotted to kill him. Texts: selected verses from Acts chapter nine.

And, so it is, the ones who once admired you, can later plot to kill you. It’s called the way of the world and the cost of discipleship.

The process continues today, nevertheless, we are commanded to be His fragrance among those, who are being saved, and among those, who are perishing. Text: 2 Corinthians 2:15-16. And with this assurance, To God our Savior, who only is wise. Be glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and forever. Amen. Text: Jude 25.

What you don’t know won’t kill you some say. When, applied to faith it’s a misnomer on a grand scale. The Old Testament was written primarily for the Jews with covenant promises, and the announcement of their promised Messiah. Along with various other prophecies. We know it as the dispensation of the law. The law carried over into the New Testament ending with the first eight chapters of the book of Acts. Beginning with Acts 9:15-23.

A rather condensed history, so those wanting a complete history, and why some refer to Acts, as the Acts of the Church, discovery is available. That doesn’t mean that that the preceding scriptures are irrelevant. They are not. The primary difference is the transition from law to grace.

For those interested about learning more about this transition, scheduling can be accomplished through the Contact Us link on my Home page. Living room conversations work well, as do other forums where people can gather.

transition from one to the other

It’s been said that God assumed the responsibility for creating the earth. When completed, behold a place of magnificent splendor. God himself said that, and He was pleased, so he rested.

Then He realized amidst the beauty nothing resembled Himself. So He created from the earth itself a species that resembled Himself, But though it was an innate specimen of Himself, it lacked personality. So through this specimen, He breathed His presence through his creations nostrils, and he became a living being.

Centuries later one His more violent enemies had a life changing experiences and ended up spending three years with Him in Arabia. He put it this way, “For you have heard of my conduct how in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it. And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers. But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son, that I should preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not confer immediately confer with flesh and blood, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those, who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter and remained with him fifteen days.” Apostle Paul.

Different times different seasons. But from the time one experiences God’ s creative life from their mother’s womb. God has a plan, and destiny for everyone. Fortunate are those, who move on from being an exceptional specimen of beauty. To experience the totality of God’s predestined plan that He has for everyone.

Having have read this then you are mortal but what matters is to become immortal. If that hasn’t occurred, as an ordained Padre, available to help you experience that immortal transition. And hopefully, you will find and accomplish His predestined plan just for you. CfS is a church without walls, and therefore without membership. Found through the Contact Us link on my Home page.

ticky and tacky

To what degree does the government, and religion influence how people think, and thus act? For the, United States, think in terms of our Judea-Christian heritage. It’s a question that should be asked by all Americans.

With a mind set as being American. Comes a carefully engineered program which purposefully conditions Americans to accept some well scripted paradigms. With a paradigm being defined as ones values and ethics. Those predetermined values of ethics determines how people react to their surroundings.

It all starts at birth. Continues through primary, middle and high school. Even extending the process through ones university life. It’s there also through technical education. For those, who go from high school right into the work force, it’s there also.

The goal of all of that is to have a population, who pretty much duplicate one another in dress and lifestyles. Resulting with most being boxed in by predetermined cultural behaviors. Becoming ones system of values which in return shape ones ethics, as to how right and wrong is determined.

That seemed to be the way the Showtine producers of Weeds captured the American scene. It served as a dark comedy drama from, 07 August 05-16 September 2012. There seems to be some interest in bring the popular series back.

Weeds painted the American populace as, Ticky Tacky, products of ones environment? Is that really ones self worth? People unable to think for, or react beyond predetermined boxes? Unfortunately, for most, the answer is an astounding yes!

Consider the Christian religion the segment of society expected to produce Ticky Tacky Americans. It has been reported that as of this year, 2019, 65% of Americans adhere to some form of Christianity. That number was 85% in 1985. Seems something not working.

So with that trend in mind imagine, what would happen, if they where gathered up, and repopulated abroad into some predominately Muslim country? What percent of them would remain Christians? Such a proposition is impossible to determine with any accuracy. But it seems more than likely, that most, if not all would abandon their Christian roots. Seems like the nail was hit squarely on the head. Most Christians really are Ticky Tacky creations crafted to fit nicely into those Ticky Tacky boxes. That all act in like manner upon emergence from those Ticky Tacky boxes.

Such a prospect is a disgrace cast upon all of us, who are Christians. As Christians, we shouldn’t allow any political-Christian system to put us in boxes. From which Christians emerge, as a collective people declaring that the American empire to be a democracy. Governed by a legal system based around Judea-Christian ethics. Giving many a cozy feeling that the nation is a Christian nation. Because its governing principals emanate from a perspective often defined as the nations Judea-Christian heritage. The sad, and disgraceful reality is that once was true! Today, the Barack Obama prophecy has been fulfilled. He, said, as President that the United States is not a Christian nation!

With a degree of certainty most biblical knowledgeable Christians, clearly understand the President’s declaration differs, greatly from the biblical declarations of what it really means to be a Christian.

Interested in taking a journey into biblical declarations of what it means to be a Christian. About the One who said, “I am He who lives, and behold, I am alive forever, Amen. And I have the keys to Hades and death.” Text: Revelation 1:18. Hades, and death isn’t just about people, it’s also about nations. Nations just die differently. Is America on its death bed?

opinions that matter

Jesus can be thought of as an illustrative artist. Who uses objects to teach lessons to the global community. Yes, visual substances to teach substantive lessons. With the scriptures announcing, “For the bread of God, is He , who comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world.” Text: John 6:33. This time using bread as the source of life. A food harvested from this earth for physical nourishment, as well, as spiritual nutrition for life here, and beyond this sphere of existence. Ultimately climaxing with this glorious conclusion, “They sang a new song,” singing, ‘You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open the seals; for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and have made us a kingdom of priest, and we shall reign on earth.'” Texts: Revelation 5:9-10.

It’s note worthy that God sees the world as a universal whole. One of equality and without divisiveness. For inequality and divisiveness are like a fungus that kills everything in its path.  Also in Revelation five, the redeemed are seen as a global governing body with Jesus. With no boundaries of separation just a perfect whole. With everyone being invited to share in the best of times.

God sees the world as a whole, so also do His redeemed. While people outside of God’s umbrella, by choice, and as a majority have compartmentalized His land masses into nation states. They did, and do that, for self preservation purposes. Creating inequality and divisiveness and its that fungus that is plaguing the world community today. Plaguing nation states also from within their carved out borders.

Common sense suggest that the better way is the God way. But for now, it’ll have to be a mental exercise. Because the great devils of this world won’t allow it because they govern under Satan the God of compartmentalization of inequality and divisiveness. See 2 Corinthians 11:14-15.

How great is this division between God and the nation states that inhabit His creation? Note the following, “The world can not hate you; but it hates Me, because I testify of it that its works are evil.” Text: John 7:7.

The answer, God have mercy upon us! Come quickly in the name of the triune personage of Jesus Christ. See 1 John 5:7.
