champions of a different sort

In the Louisiana Superdome, 15 Sept 1978, Muhammad Ali, stepped into the ring to fight heavyweight boxing champion, Leon Spinks, age 25. The champion youthful and in the prime of his career.

Ali way past his prime and considered finished as a boxer. He had won and lost the heavyweight boxing championship twice.

Ali wasn’t expected to fare well against Spinks, but he surprised the odd makers by scoring a unanimous decision. Muhammad Ali, became the first boxer to win the heavy weight boxing championship three times.

Remarked Ali, “Age is what you think it is. You are as old as you think you are. It’s just a job. Grass grows, birds fly and waves pound the sand. I beat people up.

Remarks from Paul, “Now to Him, who is able to do exceedingly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.” See Ephesians 3:20. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.” See Hebrews 11:1. “But if we hope for what we cannot see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.” See Romans 8:25. Age, and circumstances don’t matter.

life the hard way

A bird in a cage at a window sang only at night. A bat which heard her came up and asked, “Why don’t you sing during the morning?” She said, “She had a good reason,” saying, ‘It was during the morning that I was captured, continuing, that had taught me a lesson.'” “It’s no good taking precautions now,” said the bat, ‘You should have been careful before you were caught.'” Source: Penguin Classics – Fables of Aesop – A Lesson Learned Too Late.

The rich, and the poor have this in common, the LORD is maker of them all. A prudent person foresees evil and hides, but the simple pass on and are punished. See Proverbs 22:2-3.

strangeness on the battlefield

When a person loses the prestige that they once had. Then in their misfortune they become the play things of even cowards.

A lion worn out with age and feebleness lay breathing his last breath. First came a boar, and with a blow from its tusks took revenge on him for an old injury.

Then a bull lowered its horns and gorged its enemies body.

An ass seeing those attacks delivered with impunity kicking blows to the lions forehead with its heals.

The Lion seeing on the verge of dying said, “It’s hard enough to face death from those brave animals about to triumph over me. But as for you, you shameful blot of a creature. To be at your mercy as I die is like dying twice over.” Source: Penguin Classics – Fables of Aesop – The Mighty Fallen

“What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much long suffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on vessels of mercy which he had prepared beforehand for glory.” See Romans 9:22-23.

“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.” See Romans 4:7-8.

whore’s 2 rapists called lobbyist

We only have an immigration problem because of an inept Congress. Whore’s to rapists called lobbyist for reelection purposes. Who knowingly allowed immigrants to come, and stay in the United States. Severing as cheap laborers for the agriculture industry and other corporate conglomerates. Who successfully argued that Americans refused to do the kind of work that corporate America needed done. Which was a huge lie, the American workforce would, and will do such work. But not at wage below the lawful established minimum wage. Which also, would have buried the workforce below the national established poverty index.

This we know with certainty over a million DACA residents live and work in the United States. They were brought here as underage children or were born here. The children of parents who knew what hard work was about. They should not be victimized by the government, who turned a blind eye, then and now, to the nations greed driven corporate conglomerates. Whose motto is, earn a penny at any cost.

Incidentally, their cooperative evils are the reason why so many American workers can’t earn a livable wage. And for those fortunate enuf to do so, those companions of evils have worked, and will continue to submerge any and all efforts at such sustainability. Solution Unionize! And it’s, why we don’t have Medicare for all which would eliminate inadequate private insurers. And those cooperative evils are out to abolish the nations social security program. And will do so, unless Americans wake up, and say no! Not for me or future generations.

Jesus told this story that perhaps will have an appropriate sting upon like minded people. Declaring, “That people always ought to pray.”

Note carefully because between the following lines there is a valuable lesson to be learned.

Saying, “There was in a certain city a certain judge, who did not fear God nor man. Now there was a certain widow in that city; and she came to him saying, “Get justice for me from my adversary. And he would not for awhile, but afterward he said within himself, though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she wearies me.

Then the Lord unveiled a historical reoccurring mystery. Hear what the unjust judge said, “And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them. Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, will he really find faith on earth?” See Luke 18:1-8.

Personal, and collective success eludes us because most don’t pray and faith is an unknown substance for most. The combination is the formula for defeating injustices aforementioned and defeatingĀ  those forthcoming.

For tomorrow, prayer and faith making them work. When injustices become overbearing along with life’s other calamities.


democracy in trouble

Escaping the trouble from yesterdays discussion. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.” See Psalms 20:7.

Two camps. Trump has a history of suppression by whatever means possible to get his way. And, it has worked! Despite any ethical or legal suggestive facts which declare otherwise.

And as he sits, at the pinnacle of power. trump will not surrender his presidency no matter how legal and constitutional the process had been that he do so.

TheĀ  ancients could rely upon chariots powered by horses. In order to maintain existence. Such defensive posturing today even in consideration of 2nd amendment rights. Is no match for a modern day commander in chief’s gallery of weapons. When challenged with the relinquishment of power legally and thus in a civil manner.

The other camp. Sanity must prevail through trust in the LORD our God. If the LORD our God, doesn’t intervene, then the United States will be revisited by a modern day Nebuchadnezzar in the personage of donald j trump. Then Americans will have to pray for a modern day Daniel for deliverance.

Then King Nebuchadnezzar rose and spoke to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?” “Look!” “I see four men walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” See Daniel 3:24-25.

America is to far gone to be saved from any secular or religious possibilities. It’ll take a supernatural intervention by the LORD our God to once again save the United States.

women the nations only hope

Many pundits observing the political divide between republicans and democrats see our nation headed for a constitutional crisis. As having slipped into an irreconcilable state, that could well spill over to rioting through out the nation.

And should this occur, who’s at fault? Mostly old elitist, sexist and racist republican men. It gained momentum through the Rehnquist court, when five republican jurists gave the presidency to George W. Bush. Who lost the national vote to his democratic opponent Al Gore.

It repeated itself, when Hillary Clinton defeated Donald J. Trump for the presidency by capturing the national vote. But this time another elitist institution the Electoral college gave the presidency to Trump. The Electoral College allows the Congress to elect the President and not the people. That institution allows for elitism to marginalize the wishes of the voting public. As does the modern day Supreme Court from Rehnquist to the Roberts Court. If Kavenaugh becomes a jurist on the Supreme Court, that group of elitist republicans will severely marginalize the middle class to a new, and never before experience state of poverty. Done so, with the few can become richer. Because that’s what elitism and privilege is all about. Everyone out side of that circle becomes an expendable commodity for the sake of the prosperity of the few.

Women have been victimized by such attitudes and behaviors more so than men. All forms of elitism like the ideology that woman are the play things of men. Woman are expressing their disdain against such notions, such as, “Boys will boys!”

Therefore if America is to survive an unprecedented wave of woman must be elected to the house and senate of the United States Congress. Because their temperament, and experiences make them more suitable governors. Much could be said to substantiate such an assertion. Instead readers are encouraged to engage themselves in serious research, and they’ll discover convincing evidence.

Men are prone to bullying in order to get their way. A suitable example was clearly evident with Senator Lindsey Graham’s verbal tirade against democrats on the judiciary committee. That’s an ugly trait and one not owned by woman. Woman rely more upon seasoned reasoning, as demonstrated by the Senators Amy Klobuchar, Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris. The ugliness of bullying saw itself pictured again, as Kavanaugh bullied Senator Klobuchar. Later offering her an apology.

Purpose FBI inquiry Ford v Kavenaugh

The all male members of the senate judiciary committee harbor a disdain against truth. It was crushed by the power of the, Me Too Movement.

The following exemplifies their movement. “Human nature itself is evermore an advocate for liberty. There is also in human nature a resentment of injury and indignation against wrong. A love of truth and a veneration of virtue. These amiable passion are the latent spark. If people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the difference between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principles can the friends of humankind apply than a sense of this difference,” John Adams. Who would become the nations second president severing from 1797-1801.

Christine Blasey Ford v Brett Kavenaugh

For those who watched the latest episode for the confirmation of kavenaugh, it’s easy to discern that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was truthful. And kavenaugh, a product of privilege, and secret fraternity societies, lied. He may have been so drunk which seems to have been a reoccurring experience for him. But aware enough, to think that woman were his play things to be abused. as he saw fit. kavenaugh shares that trait with a guy called trump Two nuts from the same shell.

As for Dr Ford, if you know anything about traumatic experiences. Then you know that such experiences are forever engraved in ones brain. Relived constantly as a memorial experience that will not go away. Even though one wishes that it would. Dr. Ford, said she was 100% sure that supreme court hopeful kavenaugh violated her. And, enjoyed the fun he was having.

the donald trump phenomenon

Ever wonder why things are so screwed up? Pure and simple, it’s the modern day church. Perhaps it got its birth with the Ronald Reagan, era and has been dangerously growing over the decades. Fearfully it might plateau, if, Brett Kavanaugh is elevated to the nations highest court. Kavanaugh is dangerous! Kavanaugh is a Trump theoretician, who will work tirelessly to protect Trump. Giving evidence during his confirmation hearings that Trump could constitutionally protect himself from attempts to disrupt his governance. By suspending any measures adverse to him. Giving Trump a presidency like that of Russian President Vladimir Putin or Recep Tayip Erogan of Turkey.

Many churches in significant numbers align themselves with political candidates, and parties that hold to political ideologies that mimic their’s. They are rich and powerful institutions, who own and operate many avenues of communications such as television networks. Who use those avenues to mesmerize their followers into hypnotic obedience to the drum beat of their agenda’s. So when, they collectively give credence to Donald Trump. They enthusiastically obey blinded to any realities or truths.

Donald Trump understands their power and influence, and has aligned himself with them. Making the combination of religion and politics a very dangerous threat to American democracy.

caught between 2 worlds


The Peter syndrome is a condition that plagues all of us, sometime during our life. It is a condition that when courage is needed, it is nowhere to be found. It is just that sometimes, when the going gets tough, some turn to running. With running employing different faces depending upon the circumstances. Like the face Peter wore, when he denied knowing Jesus Christ.

It was at a time, when he may have thought that the movement Christ founded was about to be crushed. Peter had slipped into a court room to witness legal proceedings against the man he most admired and pledged to follow. There stood his leader before the justices and being ordered, either to confirm or deny whether He was, or was not the Christ, the Son of God.

Jesus replied boldly, “As you say,” with the court responding with rage, “You have spoken blasphemy!” Then with quick deliberation, they ruled, “He is guilty of death.” Then they turned and spit in his face, and beat him. Others punched him with the palms of their hands. Then they mocked him, “Saying prophesy to us, Christ! Who struck you?”

Peter, shaken to his very core after such a horrific court proceeding. And as Peter, was slipping out of court, a group of woman saw him. Shouting you were with Jesus at Galilee! No! he replied, “I have no idea what you are talking about.” But another women overhearing the shouting, said to them all, “He was with Jesus of Nazareth.” This time Peter said, “I do not know the man!”

Later Peter was approached a third time by a group of people. They stood by, and said to Peter, “Surely you are one of them; for your speech betrays you.” With that assertion of identity, Peter lost control of himself. Standing there, he began to curse and to swear, saying, “I know not the man!” Suddenly Peter remembered what Jesus had said, and he wept bitterly.

Interesting in reading the account for yourself? Go to Matthew 26:57-75. Read it in the light of John 3:8, experience the Spirit which is much like the wind. Perhaps if you know Jesus, His Spirit will work another miracle. And if you, like me, know Him, well then maybe His Spirit might have a special Christ message for you, as He had for me more than once. It’s a cumulative experience wrapped up in 2 Corinthians 5:17. Remember the Apostle Paul was in training for three years, Galatians 1:15-24; note the public reaction, Acts 9:26-31.

“Now to Him, who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. To God our Savior, who only is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever,” Jude 24-25.

one upmanship


A monkey made a great impression by dancing before an assembly of animals, who elected him their king. The fox was jealous. Noticing a snare with a piece of meat in it, he took the monkey to it and said, “Here is a choice titbit that I have found. Instead of eating it myself I have kept it for you as a perquisite for your royal office. So take it.”

The monkey went for it carelessly and was caught in the snare. When he accused the fox of laying a trap for him, the fox replied, Fancy a fool like you, friend monkey, being king the animals!”

People who attempt things without due consideration suffer for it and get laughed at into the bargain. Source: Penguin Classics: Fables of Aesop: “Fools Die For Lack Of Wisdom”

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And with all your getting get understanding. See Proverbs 4:7. Happy is the person, who finds wisdom, and the person, who gains understanding; for her proceeds are better than the profits of silver, and her gain than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies. And all things, you may desire cannot compare to her. Length of days is in her right hand. In her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those, who take hold of her. And happy, are all who retain her. See Proverbs 3:13-18.

rhubarbs of nothingness and something

Who is the master of fate? According to President Trump, it’s Korean strongman, Kim Jong Un. As the President tweeted, “Military solutions are now in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully, Kim Jong Un will find another path.”

For since by man came death, by man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order, Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has out all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. See 1 Corinthians 15:21-26.
