the mysteriousness of a greeting

The mystery of a greeting is the ingenuity of newness which often requires tweaking so as to become more perfect. An American experience, as we shall discover.

So here is the start of that mystery. And Joseph said to his father, They are my sons, whom God has given me in this place.” And he (Jacob/Israel father and grandfather) said, “Please bring them to me, and I will bless them.” See Genesis 48:9. Then Israel stretching out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim’s head who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh’s head guiding his hand knowingly for Manasseh was the first born. See Genesis  48:14  And he blessed Joseph and said, “God before, whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked. The God who has fed me all my life long to this day. The Angel (Jesus) who has redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; let my name be named upon them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.” See Genesis 48:14-16.

But his father refused Joseph’s objection. See Genesis 48:17-18. But his father refused and said, “I know my son, I know. He (Manasseh the eldest) also shall become a people, and he also shall be great. A prophetic announcement declaring the greatness of the United States. But truly his younger brother (Ephraim) shall be greater that he, and his descendants shall become multitude of nations. The prophetic announcement for the establishment of Great Britain and her Commonwealth of nations. See Genesis 48:19.

So he blessed them that day, saying, “By you Israel will bless.” Saying, May God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh!” And thus he set Ephraim before Manasseh. See Genesis 48:20.

And so through a mortal man, Jacob/Israel, God prophetically declared the eventual creation of two global powers. Through two flawed boys, Ephraim and Manasseh. whose flawed descendants have left us Great Britain and the United States more flawed than at their inception. Whose durability, is questionable as global powers. Because God’s originality, for both empires was to be spiritual powerhouse. Of the two, the United States in every conceivable category has exemplified the originality of God’s intentions. As shown from yesterdays discussion.

To be continued.

two sides of mysticism

It’s pretty hard not be aware of the multiculturalism of inclusiveness being forced upon the American people. Which is driven by certain segments of society, who know what they needed to do. In order remake America into something America was never intended to be. For instance, the prohibition of recognizable Christian observations from the public forum. In schools and through out the American society. Themes like Christmas and Easter recesses. With a very noticeable public observation of Good Friday. That is the dark side of mysticism.

Make no mistake this is the culprit behind the multicultural inclusiveness plaguing America. And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered the LORD and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it,” Job 1:7. And, Satan’s presences here among us brings about the following.

Diseases often grow from within the body before manifesting symptoms to advanced to avoid death. That’s what will occur if the remaking of America isn’t destroyed.

For this discussion the inner body is the public schools through out the United States. The future from which one or the other mystical influences will prevail. For life or death.

The life of America. There was a time, when Bibles were prominently observed on public school teachers desks. Equally observable were the placement of the Ten Commandments. At the start of the school day students pledged allegiance to the flag of the United States. Followed by the vocal recitation of the Lord’s Prayer. It’s impossible to determine how many deviant behaviors were avoided by such Christ centered observations.

The ways of heaven can be mystical. With mysticism becoming applicable through the devotees of Jesus heralding His truths sometimes without awareness. Impacting and changing lives. Here are three examples America needs for restoration to its previous self. Jesus said, “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone, who is born of the Spirit,” John 3:8. Lives changed! And America impacted and made into something she was suppose to be. Supernaturally as recorded, “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,” Psalms 91:11-12. And, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth for those who will inherit salvation,” Hebrews 1:14. And those three scriptures, represent the other bright side of mysticism. Mysticism needs a platform, and its been erased. It all starts within the nations public schools. Maybe God will help our students return their schools back to what they use to be. No doubt they could use some adult help. Today public schools represent chaos!

All gone, except for the voluntary recitation of the pledge to our flag. Today, if the pledge to the flag violates ones conscience. One can remain seated or standing in silence. The Lord’s Prayer has been replaced with a moment of silence. All done to make students a more inclusive body to the detriment of our Judeo-Christian values. And America, is less Christian and more hedonistic. And that hedonistic philosophy is attained through the declations of inclusiveness.

The proponents of inclusiveness have an ultimate goal. Which is to create an acceptance of oneness, among the American people. Meaning all people have a right to marry even if they are both female or male. Added to their repertoire is that irregardless of the gender reported on ones birth certificate. One can reject that gender and simply switch genders. And be allowed the full accommodations of that gender. With state legislatures for fear of boycotts making it lawful.

If the previous generations of Americans, now resting in their graves. Could be resurrected and given a glimpse of their America today. They’d flee back to their graves. Knowing that life now in America is tantamount to a more pitiful death. God spare America!

a grander garden

Yesterday, “A Framers Day in the Garden,” which discussed the elements for an American trip to the fiery furnace of destruction. Which Americans can avoid by self determination which after all used to be the American way. It occurred because Americans use to believe that her greatness of self determination was anchored in mysticism. Created through subjective intuition fostered by prayerful awareness. Which brought about a determination to create a nation depended upon God Almighty. Expressed through what would become links of Judaism and Christianity together. And, those cords of thoughts combined created America the Beautiful.

With penned lyrics by, Katharine Lee Bates, showing the sustaining fruits of a nation bowed before God in absolute faith and dependence.

1. America! America! God shed His grace on thee. And crown thy good with brotherhood. From sea to shining sea! 2. America! America! God mend thine every flaw. Confirm thy soul in self control. Thy liberty in law! 3. America! America! May God thy gold refine till all success be nobleness and every gain divine! 4. America! America! God shed His grace on thee. And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea! 5. America! America! God shed His grace on thee. Till souls wax fair as earth and air. And music-hearted sea! 6. America! America! God shed His grace on thee. Till paths be wrought through wilds of thought by pilgrim foot and knee! 7. America! America! God shed His grace on thee. Till selfish gain no longer stain. The banner of the free! 8. America! America! God shed His grace on thee. Till nobler men keep once again, thy whiter jubilee!

An unusual birth, America! Echoing its body parts from the divinely inspired lyrics penned by Bates. Riding on the back of Great Britain’s lion symbol. Suggestive of the nations challenges from infancy and onward where strength and bravery are needed. And picturesque of the lion.

Sweet sleep how refreshing it is. Unless you have a disturbing dream. On a particular night Daniel had such a dream. Perhaps jarred awake, he wrote down those impressions. Saying, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other. The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.” See Daniel 7:4.

This discussion will focus on the winged lion. Dig back and recall your history. Plymouth Rock does it ring a bell? People crossing the Atlantic fleeing religious persecution. On a boat that barely succeeded in its mission. They were the courageous pilgrims who beat the odds because of a determination to create a republic form of government free of government intrusion into life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

And so that fearless lion became air born by its powerful wings like that of an bald eagle. With the bald eagle being symbolic of American sight, strength, speed, endurance and faithfulness.

So the eagle free from the lion lifted up. And made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. Embodied with the characteristics of the United States. The United States history is one benevolence and known globally as, “Uncle Sam.”
