magical workings of a teeter-totter

“There is no new thing under the sun!” Because, That which has been is that which shall be, and that which has been done is that which shall be done.” (cp. Ecclesiastes 1:9).

Seems that what is out there is waiting to be rediscovered and re-implemented. For this discussion reflection, and action are the tools required to make that teeter totter tilt back and forth.

This writer has often wondered what will it take to get the American citizenry, to tilt that teeter totter back into the peoples favor. It will happen, when enough people realize that our government nationally, and locally does not serve the best interest of common folk.

Our government whether seated in Washington, or in our state capitals are  governments for the few, who are rich and powerful.

Against the many, who are struggling to secure a fair living. It’s an unending battle to secure social, and economic justice through out America.

Those struggles are against the rich and powerful, who have the money to support political candidates, who will keep the poor, poor, and make sure that the rich stay rich and get richer!

American politicians regardless of party affiliation are content to allow misery, and suffering to occur among the general population.

Of course there are exceptions in Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, and a few others. But there just aren’t enough of them in the Senate or House to tilt that teeter-totter in laboring peoples favor!

This writer could list a litany of struggles that need attention. For now just one, which is the re-calculation as to how rents are determined for residents in so called low income affordable housing.

This writer has argued with HUD that rents should be based upon renters income and not area’s median income. Which for his area is $60,200. Renters live off of social security and pensions. And from those figures, that’s how rents should be determined.

Bureaucrats within HUD agree, and have said that have attempted to get congress to make changes more in accordance with the aforementioned.

Saying that housing corporate conglomerates have lots of money to push back against any attempts to alter how rents are determined.

Meaning retaining power in congress is more important the fair rental determinations. Therefore that teeter-totter is tilted against renters in serious need of affordable housing.

And guess, who is a power broker in the scheme of so called low income housing? One of laboring peoples many enemies, The Internal Revenue Service!

According to the writer of Ecclesiastes these struggles have always been with humanity.

Time passes, and they need to be recycled. And returned to humanity with a new appearance.

Because the palace of greed, which is shall be. Always waiting to be rediscovered and re-implemented. It’s the universal law of darkness.

The chief architect comes from  the underworld. A world few know about.

Rediscovered and implemented, as a millennium journeys through it allotted decades.

Dressed up by modernity, to inflict continued social, and economic injustices Remember there is nothing new under the sun.

One persons blessing is another persons curse. For this discussion this writer is the curse. Advocating that Jesus the Christ was, and is a socialist.

Based upon these words by Jesus Himself. “I was hungry and you gave Me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink. I was a stranger, and you took Me in. I was naked, and you clothed Me. I was sick and you visited Me. I was in prison, and you came to visit Me.

Then His audience asked, “When did we do what you said about us?” Jesus replied, “Having done it for anyone, is the same as having done for me.” (cp. Matthew 25:35-40).

Talk about fury! It’s a fair assumption that 99.9 percent of church palaces of nothingness will rail against against such declarations. That’s because they are theater’s of entertainment. Or adherents, of social inequality and economic justice.

Jesus tagged them for what they were raving wolves behaving like sheep. The Christ warning, beware! (cp. Matthew 7:15-16),

Sometime in the future this age will cease to exist. One shenanigan after another caused by the aforementioned as it marches through the centuries will cause Divine Providence to say enuf is enuf!

Then this shock will occur among many, Knighted Hierarchical Theist and their faithful congregants.

Then Jesus said to His  disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven. It’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God” Then the disciples being astonished and asked? “Who then can be saved?” (cp. Matthew 19:23-25).

The discussion Jesus had with His allies had nothing to do with wealth. But everything to do with attitude.

With Jesus attitude was intertwined with a willingness; to sacrifice what one has, for the benefit of others, without any expectations about rewards or recognition. All of which was exemplified from, Matthew 25:35-40).

In response to the question, who can be saved? Jesus said, “Redemption is impossible other than through God.” (cp. Matthew 19:26).

So it was then, and nothing has changed. For those who can relate to His redemptive power through experience, Blessings!

Time is precious, and the future is unknown. Once death has captured us redemption is no longer available. It’s not wise to flirt with chance.

Join the redeemed, by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

And they will be happy times, free from the anxieties of this world. Which will get worse; as humanity travels, to the end of this current age.

how something becomes nothing

These discussions should be read as strategies to be employed by Christians, as they create a revolutionary Christ movement.

Two strategies are necessary when considering launching such endeavors. Gain the favor of the citizenry, as did Jesus. This always alarms the civil authorities. It serves as a power base for successful activism, which equals successful change

Christ often used fables to illustrate His activeness intentions, Which of course were designed, for the entire history of the Christ era reaching us today.

Christ movements are always about change Change always encounters resistance. Therefore Jesus likened His followers as people being sent among wolves. He advocated being wise as serpents. Has anyone ever seen a snake seeking attention, as it hunts for prey.

Jesus also suggested that we should be seen as harmless as doves. It is about our mental attitude. (cp. Matthew 10:16).

Such a strategy spared John the Baptist from being executed by Herod. John infuriated people close to Herod. He condemned an intimate relationship between Herod and his brothers wife. In the end through trickery, John the Baptist was beheaded. (cp. Matthew 14:6-11).

This teaches us that all bets are off, when one is in the service of Christ. Treachery is always present, and sometimes it comes from sources least expected.

Embracing the purposes of Christ can be very dangerous. Jesus warned that in some instances, the authorities would attempt to humiliate His followers publicly.

On other occasions people would be arrested. Then forced to face trial in their courts as criminals. Because of their testimony on behalf of Jesus. And for us today, our victorious risen Christ. (cp. Matthew 10:17-18). And when in there presences don’t be concerned, as to how to defend yourself. For the Spirit Himself will speak through every defendant. (cp. Matthew 10:19-20).

The Apostle Paul picked up on the Spirits influences, and wrote this for our era in God’s time line. “Likewise the Spirit helps with our weaknesses. For we do not know how to pray (talk) as we ought.

But the Spirit Himself makes intersession for us with expressions that can’t be understood. Now He who searches the heart knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intersession for the saints according to the will of God.” (cp. Romans 8:28-29).

We within Christendom need a new mind set. Less influence from this worlds governing apparatus functionality over and within us.

Accomplished by a more complete awareness of the surrendering to forces of God Almighty who dwells within us. It’s a process that needs to be patiently nurtured spirituality

No easy task, as acknowledged by Paul. “Knowing this that our old self was crucified with Him, that the body of influences (sin) might be done away with. That we should no longer be slaves to ways of the old self. For they who have died are free from the old self.” (cp. Romans 6:6-7).

All around us are opposing forces determined to eradicates influences that would advance the Christ causes.

Jesus offered this warning concerning friends and family, In that it was a problem in the first century of Christendom, so it will continue to be. And as this era on God’s time line moves towards closure, it’s likely to be greatly increased. Because that’t the primary way of evil, especially when sensing their doom.

“Now brother will deliver up brother; and father his child, and children will rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death.” (cp. Matthew 10:21).

Hopefully, you are one of us, in and through Christ Jesus. Made possible through His brutal murder, and then by His magnificent victorious resurrection! Claimed by you?Blessings!

If not, you are invited to join us. Just follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world they will in the next.

foul smell of garbage

Republican Rep. Mo Brooks must go it alone; over allegations,  that it helped incited the, 06 Jan. 2021, insurrection at the U.S, Capital. According to the Department of Justice.

According to various news wires, Brooks, 45, and others were sued for helping and abetting the insurrection.

That a boy donald, we always knew you were a Nazi at heart.

The possibility that 45 will be the 1st ex thing imprisoned, sounds pretty encouraging for those of us who value democracy over republican fascism.

dirty needs a good cleaning

A vast contrast is very distinguishable between the first century movement led by Jesus Christ, and today’s modern church. Led mostly by, knighted hierarchical theist, who are mostly interested in empire building. Then being agents of change according to well established edicts of Divine Providence.

Should one travel the various roads to these many communities. There you will be able find many beautiful looking church structures.

These churches in order to operate must comply with certain federal, state, and local ordinances. Parishioners come from all walks of life. Many politicians and government officials can be found in attendance. All this is in stark contrast contrast to the experiences of Jesus, His disciples and early Christendom. And into relatively modern times there have been a few Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s.

This then is a discussion of what it means to embrace the cause of Christ. Of course, it will be in opposition to most congregants and there Knighted Hierarchical Theist. Mutual acceptance between church and state is what has crippled the Christ movement.

The state is and always has been about control of religious institutions for its own purposes. That’s what the Internal Revenue Code Section 501 (c) (3) is all about.

The church should be about making sure that the state governs according to Christ like principles. The two are at opposite ends of the poll when it comes to purposes.

They can not be in harmony with each other ever! Which is exactly what we see today between church and state, except with few exceptions. And those few are so minuscule. they aren’t making a difference. Suggesting somethings wrong because Christ is not inhibited by lack of numbers.

Most people in America know that Christ was executed for His opposition to both civil and religious leaders. Christ said in Matthew 10:24-25, “The disciple is not above his Teacher. Nor is an employee above their employer.

It is enough that the disciple should be like his Teacher. If they have accused your Master (Jesus) of being of the house of Beelzebub. (Meaning an evil deity was in possession of Jesus). They certainly will say the same about you. Note: Paragraph by critical analytical interpretation this writer).

The following represents some of what Christ told His followers to expect from both the civil and religious authorities, and even from their families. While He was preparing His followers for what to expect during His lifetime, it is equally applicable today, and maybe more so.

We learn that from Matthew 10:22. Which reads, “You  shall be hated by many people for My names sake, but they who endure to the end shall be saved.” Jesus was going to send His disciples into communities that would be hostile to what they were trying to accomplish.

Telling them, “Beware of certain people, for they will deliver up to judicial councils for prosecution. And they will do there best to humiliate you through out the religious world.” (cp. Matthew 10:17).

You will be forced to stand before the highest power structures within civil governments to give testimony against Me.

It will be used by the heathen community to shame you because of Me. However your testimony will eventually be used as a testimony against them, and the community of nations. (cp. Matthew 10:18, by critical analytical interpretation).

No doubt they were alarmed, and perhaps they thought to themselves, what have I gotten myself into?

With certainty,  Jesus was aware of their deepest fears and concerns. For Jesus said to them, “Don’t be concerned about how to respond. For it will be given to you in that hour what you shall say; for it will not be you who will speak, but the Spirit of your Father who will speak through you.” (cp. Matthew 10:19-20).

What a weapon they had within themselves; and most certainly without the awareness of the Spirit’s power, that we know about today.

And seldom used; because only a select few are capable of the inner workings of the Spirit between themselves, and Devin Providence. Think about that with its two way repercussions. It’s not the play thing of the spiritually inept.

No one really knows how the Spirit might express itself through one or more of us. One aspect is certain everyone is spiritually dead until they have experienced Romans 10:9-10. So if that has been your experience give thanks because your destiny is still unfolding.

However; if that experience is foreign to you, follow the prompts found in those two verses.

And be sure to check out verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek.

And if our paths don’t cross, as we are engaged in Christ like warfare. They will in the age making headway towards us.

Battle Hymn of the Christian

It you are one of those people, who like the ‘happy days’ of Sunday. Where nothing happens besides shaking hands, smiling and singing, then these discussions are not for you.

But on the other hand, if you have the spirit of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran clergyman in Nazi Germany. Who would not flee the country, when he had the chance. But stayed to be a voice of opposition against Nazism, who was arrested and executed for his stance.

While in prison, knowing his fate, he had the strength to write manuscripts. Which were later published as books about the true cost of being a Christian.

The voice of God can not be silenced. Dietrich’ courage lives on to inspire the people belonging to Christ. Are you one of us, not necessarily Lutheran? But redeemed by the atonement of His blood, as the perfect example for standing against evil in behalf of the good. Perfectly pictured in Revelation 19:13, needing this, Ezekiel 3:3, because of Isaiah 53:1-14. Then indeed these discussions are for you.

Because you may want to join us, and become a part of a movement. Designed to defend the cause of Christ and advance His messages and purposes.

That every knee shall bow and every tongue shall swear the righteousness of God. Who said, “Look to me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself, the word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return void.

That to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue take an oath.” He shall say, “Surely in the LORD I have righteousness and strength. To Him shall people come, and all shall be ashamed, who are incensed against Him In the LORD all the descendants of Israel shall be be justified, and shall glory,” Isaiah 45:22-25.

And that justification was accomplished through His crucifixion and resurrection. It’s what John, Ezekiel and Isaiah were talking about.

Anchored by Paul himself, the evangelist sent by God, to offer redemption to those of us who are not Jews. For it is written, “As I live, says the LORD, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then, each of us shall give an account of themselves to God,” Romans 14:11-12.

“That at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and those on earth and those under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God, the Father,” Philippians 2:10-11.

Why? Because, “God also highly exalted Him, and gave Him a name which is above every name,” Philippians 2:9.

Know this, “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ,” Philippians 3:18.

Just who is the enemy of the cross of Christ, so that we might slay them with His gospel. There are many, but none more dangerous to the cross of Christ than these two, one of which is a Muslim, no matter where he or she is found.

And the other, none other than our United States government, commissioned by God to protect the republic against such evils.

It’s observable that the government is determined to be the vocal cords for the Islamic call of Allahu akbar. God is great.

While conversely, being the vocal cords for destroying our Judeo-Christian heritage. While equally moving to separate what God designed to be an inseparable union with Israel and the United States.

The answer: “Greater love has no man than this, than to lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do whatever, I command you,” said Jesus, John 15:13-14. Which is to execute the aforementioned scriptures of Romans and Philippians.

What you have read represents subjective matter for the serious Christ devotee. But it all starts with being united with Him. If that resonant’s with you, Blessings!

If not start your journey by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

In the meantime diligently study your Bible. It’s suggested that you start with Romans chapter three – Philemon. Because they are the scriptures designed for this era of history.

Then notice 2 Timothy 3:16-17. Apply the same diligence, and discover God’s complete plan for humanity and much more.

The following is this Padre’s analytical interpretations. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, which means God breathed, and directed through those who penned the scriptures.

Then they become profitable for learning, scoldings, corrections, and for instruction in righteousness.

So that everyone may be able to cope with what life has to offer. Even when life offers what appears to be overwhelming burdens and challenges.

Blessings unfathomable will be yours. Perseverance means a lot. Never give up!

It’s all a part of Genesis 3:15, our personal struggles, and the global wars over the centuries. May all of us in Christ Jesus allow the Son of Mary to stomp upon that ugly beings head. Identified as that sneaky shape shifting serpent of history.

how a America is toileting its future

“And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure, when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country, when I reflect that God is just. That his justice cannot sleep forever,” Thomas Jefferson.

Jefferson, who would become the nations third president, was not known as gifted orator. His talent was with his pen. As he crafted one of the worlds most powerful and eloquent documents, the nations Declaration of Independence.

Religion was important to Jefferson, also. Before his presidency, he wrote a bill establishing religious freedom in Virginia which enacted into law in 1786.

And the aforementioned first paragraph was one of his gifts to a young nation. Founded upon the premise that the great God of the universe was the founding Father of America. Who then passed this great gift of America, to men like Thomas Jefferson. Who would become responsible for crafting a way of life which the nation tagged as our Judeo-Christian heritage.

Looking for ways to exalt the lordship of Jesus Christ. Our reward as a nation is spelled out for us in Genesis 49:22-25. America mighty in prosperity, mighty in war and thus freedom. Spelled out this way, “Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well, whose branches run over a wall. The archers have harassed him, shot at him, and hated him. But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the the hands of the mighty God of Jacob. From there is the shepherd, the stone of Israel.”

Who is the stone of Israel? God Almighty! And who is the stone of America? His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ!

And so today the Jeffersonian fears are manifesting themselves. Because America is not secure in prosperity, might or freedom because the nation has removed the only bases for the nations existence. Complete surrender to God Almighty.

This is not some kind of game religionist play on Sunday. Rather it’s about how lives are lived, according to our scriptures by thought, actions and results. Nestled in 2 Timothy 3:16-17! Emphasis on verse 17, “That the people of God may be complete, and thoroughly equipped to get the job done!”

And its as Jefferson acknowledged with fear, “God is just and His justice can’t sleep forever. For a nation, that has moved away from framing their deeds in accordance with God’s declarations, and who must now experience his wrath.

And no doubt, continuing distancing from that Stone, will cause unparalleled havoc through out the United States. Which just might be the beginning of God’s wrath upon America. Why, some will wonder? Because America failed to continue to craft her deeds to honor and glorify the Almighty God of Abraham, who made America possible. Drifting to a point where God looked at his prized jewel America, and declared they know not their God anymore.

Angry rioting revolting citizenry is not the answer. That just makes the overall situation worse. Christendom has two of the most powerful weapon ever known, at its disposal. It is called prayer and voting. This Padre suspects that our Stone  is impressed by numbers. Because, numbers represent knowledge, commitment, determination and thus success. It’s called spiritual welfare guided from heavenly places.

But it also has perimeters meaning good intentions or church membership don’t equal the aforementioned. It means being one with Christ having experienced His redemptive power.

So if you understand that, Blessings! If not, start the journey by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

New to the Christ life? Study your Bible. Start by slowly, but carefully, and prayerfully, Romans – Philemon. Because they are the books specifically designed for our era. Then move on, to the rest of the Bible, in accordance with 2 Timothy 3:16-17.

governments dooms day-history by repetitive experiences

Daniel speaking to the community of nations, especially those who would rise to become global empires. In modern times Germany, Great Britain, China, Russia, United States and the Vatican City.

“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent stood before you and its form was awesome.

This images head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, it’s legs of iron, its feet of iron and partly of clay.

You watched while a stone was cut without hands which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.

Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found.

And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the earth.” (Authoritative texts:Daniel 2:31-35).

The stone that will finally smote the remains of that image is Jesus Christ. There is no hope for for the community of nations. It was God, who in ancient times established kingdoms, or governments, and then reduced them to nothingness.

We will turn to Isaiah to see what the Prophet has to say about nothingness. “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity.

I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man no more than the golden wedge of Ophir.

Therefore; I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place. In the wrath of the LORD of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger. (Authoritative texts:Isaiah 13:11-13).

“I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man no more than then the golden wedge of Ophir!” Ophir a port city known for its gold reserves, 1 Kings 9:26-28, suggesting that the time comes when governments are dissolved.

Their history is memorialized and compared to gold by historians. But seen by God, as nothing more than a finite substance. With nothing memorial about them except their departed glory.

Which they have no remembrance of because they have tasted the pill of death. Not even aware that their kingdoms have no existence beyond the time God allotted.

But there is an empire that refuses to die and will again haunt the world. This time with astounding success but for a time. Then it will join its predecessors, this time forever.

It showed its ugliness during the lifetime of Jesus Christ. We know that empire as the Roman Empire that was glad to hand Jesus over to the Jews to be murdered Roman style by crucifixion.

John gives us this account. “And I saw one of his heads, as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast,” (Authoritative text:Revelation 13:3).

That wounded beast unto death, but miraculously healed is suspected to be the revived Roman Empire. Today we know that beast as the European Union, a multi member union. But to fit other scriptures, the EU will be reduced to a ten state member confederation.

And so we turn to, Revelation 12:3, “And another sign appeared in heaven, behold a great fiery red dragon having seven heads, and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his head. The tens horns are thought to represent revived Roman Empire. Waiting for its time; as it becomes an economic, and military power. Today’s European Union.

Briefly, the EU serving as that beast thought dead, but revived for one last gala to terrorize the world.

With Great Britain and the United States as part of the house of Israel. Confederated of mainly English speaking nations like Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. And they most likely, will surrender their sovereignty to the again reborn Roman Empire.

SPECIAL NOTICE: For naysayers who question the absolute prophetic authority of the Bible. Great Britain left the European Union, 31 January 2020, at 23.00 hrs (GMT).

Leaving Russia perhaps, as the King of the North. Leaving the Arab Muslim world being dominated by the King of the South. Led by a ruler from Egypt.

Finally we have Vatican City a state comprising of 107.8 acres, and thus, the world’s smallest state. Led by a Pope with no standing army. Playing major destructive geopolitical role on the world stage.

Setting the final stage described in Isaiah 13:13, as followers, “Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move her out of her place. In the wrath of the LORD of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.”

In the days to come all those kingdoms will be engaged in warfare. Involving political conspiracies and double crossings with one goal. Which is to rule the world from Jerusalem a long sought after gem of Vatican City and the Arab Muslim nations.

With the King of the North, and the Roman Empire wanting Jerusalem for political purposes. Because Jerusalem, as the center of the earth. Control, and management of the world would best be facilitated from Jerusalem. Bringing to fruition a much talked about fear which is a one world government.

Perilous times lie ahead, and there is no changing what God has preordained. So do yourself a favor study, and familiarize yourself with the aforementioned. And equally important prepare yourself spiritually, because it will be dangerous to be known as a Christ follower.

Through it all, come to spiritual grips with the following. “If indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious. Coming to Him, as a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious.

All of us are His  living stones, and are being built up as a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Therefore it is also contained in the scriptures. Behold I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means will be put to shame.

Therefore, to you, who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient. The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone, and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense. They stumble, being disobedient to the Word, to which they also were appointed.” (Authoritative texts:1 Peter 2:3-8).

And there you have it, though abbreviated, “Governments dooms day-history by repetitive experience.” Because, they want to become the chief cornerstone in Zion. A distinction reserved for believers in Christ, with Him in Zion!

But that day will only come if you are with Christ through His redemptive power and grace. If you understand that, Blessings! If not become one of His, by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

a Two way Choice

“Human government is more or less perfect as it approaches nearer or diverges further from the imitations of this perfect plan of divine and moral government,” John Adams, 1770.

There is little doubt that American presidents want the very best for America. However, it must be understood that it’s from their perspective. Which may be leading the nation into the perils of destruction.

And that’s, what happening with the Biden presidency. This writer is a registered democrat. However, my ultimate allegiance is with the edicts from Divine Providence.

So the further the nation travels from the concepts of our founding fathers. The greater the distance between God and nation. Our nation was founded and evolved, as a people. Who demanded a heritage built around the scriptural account of its Judeo-Christian teachings.

It has worked well, making America the worlds most prosperous people, an envied people. A stalwart of people, who fended off global evils. Rescuing countless millions from brutal tyrannies. That was yesterday, today America is determined to travel in an opposite direction on all fronts.

Thus giving credibility to John Adam, who saw the pathway for a less perfect government. Today America is that less perfect government because America refuses to imitate God’s divine plan for a moral government.

With Peter recording the following designed to turn the nation around. “Because it is written, be holy for I am holy. And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each ones work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay in fear.

Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by the tradition from your fathers. But with the precious blood of Christ, as the lamb without blemish and without spot,” 1 Peter 1:16-19.

Because there is no such thing, as a divine plan without the precious blood of Christ, for a people, or its nation. It’s from His blood that America was able to build its heritage. Today its thought that our heritage is to be purchased through silver and gold learned from recent generations.

Which assures this response, every ones work will be judged individually and as a nation. Because the command, is a demand, “Be holy for I am holy.” So the way is a two way choice.

America, America what will become of you. Will you call upon the Father or continue to pursue the corruptible? Days will tell!

The fire wall against such an egregious pathways is through the determined efforts of those of us; who are one with Him, through His shed blood on that cross, made possible through His resurrection. Mocking His, and our enemies, who thought they had permanently ended this radical revolutionaries career, then and now!

If you understand that, then indeed, you are blessed! If you don’t, then now is the time to start that understanding. Follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

National politics does the crisis swallow the man or does the man swallow the crisis

Greatness, how is it measured among the nations Presidents? List have been complied, and various arguments presented by each pundit, who puts a name in contention. President Abraham Lincoln’s name appears on every pundits list. And always, listed among the nations five greatest presidents.

With many historians crediting Lincoln as being the nations greatest president. Just what did he do to earn such long lasting admiration? Perhaps Lincoln himself can answer that question. Along with how he put his answers into action.

That is to be contrasted with President Obama, whom is an ardent admirer of Lincoln. Tracing Lincoln’s inaugural journey to the capital to be sworn into office. No doubt recalling the civil war struggles with lives lost to abolish a great evil. With the wars end, a hope for a more perfect union did not materialize Still more blood had to be shed.

With perhaps President Obama, being the fulfillment of MLK’ dream. What black family taking residency in the White House would not be moved by such a history. Especially knowing that slave labor had constructed their new residency. And taking his oath of office, by placing his right hand on the Lincoln Bible. And, that is where the similarities end!

Because Lincoln did not save the nation by freeing the slaves, he saved the nation by his humble surrender to Jesus Christ and calling on God to save the nation. God responded and put America on track for greatness.

While Obama’s plan to save the nation was all about money, and being ashamed of Jesus Christ. And such an attitude; coming from President Obama, and other Presidents, is why America has become a sinkhole waiting to be swallowed.

Being religious, and attending church isn’t the pathway for American greatness. It’s the Lincoln way by surrendering to Jesus Christ, and calling on God to save America.

No doubt a Presidents greatness is determined by how he responds to a national crisis. Does the crisis swallow the man or does the man swallow the crisis? And in Lincolns case he swallowed the crisis, and the nation survived a crisis destined to destroy her.

But where did the Lincoln journey begin, and what shaped him? Giving him the knowledge to know that he was in a crisis over his head. A crisis that he could not guide the nation through. And what was his source for doing what seemed impossible to many civil war observers. Especially after the North’s crushing, and humiliating defeat at the Battle of Bull Run.

It started in a school house where he learned to read. Where the text book was the Bible, according to a Lincoln scholar, Elton Trueblood. Who quoted Lincoln as saying, “We had no reading books or grammars, and all our reading was done from the Bible.”

Most likely that sounds very out of place to many today. But this Padre in his own youth, a public school student. Remembers the Bible prominently placed on the teachers desk. With the Ten Commandments being proudly displayed.

Each morning the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag and the Lord’s Prayer were recited in unison by the class. Students could be seen carry Bibles. Classes were dismissed to celebrate Christmas and Easter, and not the winter holidays and spring break.

Today that is gone, except for the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. The Lord’s prayer does not roll from the lips of any class of students in unison. It has been substituted with a moment of silence. And those responsible, for such changes of shame towards God Almighty, and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ.

They were the ones that started the birth of those feared sinkholes which are able to swallow entire structures. And as the disrespect continues, the sinkholes deepen and widen and will eventually swallowing the nation.

A wise people will learn from the pages of Bible history that when a nation wails in repentance, God delivered those people.

President Lincoln had this to say about the Bible and himself. “In regards to this great book, I have but this to say, it is the best gift God has given to man. But for it, we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are found portrayed in it.

I believe I am a humble servant in the hands of our Heavenly Father; I desire that all my words and acts may be according to His Will.”

No doubt Lincoln knew this for himself and made it work for the nation. “If my people, who are called by my name, and shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (cp. 2 Chronicles 7:14).

To have done otherwise, would have allowed the crisis to swallow the man. And that is how greatest is measured among the nations Presidents. And how, the man can swallow a crisis.

It is a different era, with more than one major crisis. Different times indeed with the thing 45, and President Biden both being absent Lincoln’s depth of spirituality.

As are the nations people for the most part. It was not only Lincoln’s spirituality; alone, that saved the nation from the crisis of its times. It was the people, who were receptive to seeking God’s face in all humility. Confessing their sins, and with God responding by healing the land.

For those who have experienced the inferences concerning spirituality, and understand all of there blessed consequences. Blessed are you; as are, we the people. Because the nation will escape being swallowed by that caging sink hole.

All things have a beginning, so if the spirituality referenced seems unknown to you. Get connected to spiritual awareness by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek.

Then study your Bible slowly and with prayer. It’s suggested starting with the Book of Romans, chapter three. Then slowly move towards Philemon. Why? Because those books are God’s voice for this era of time. And when ready move on to studying the rest of the bible. Note: 2 Timothy 3:16-17, lots to be learned in and through unexpected ways.

May wonderful spiritual growth be yours! And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

Trying times answering the call

Shamefully we are seeing all resemblances of Christianity being removed from public places, usually through the judicial system. What will be there next move to deny the public, perhaps there last chance to be drawn to the victorious risen Christ of Christianity?

Symbols are not just important they are almost sacred, as a means of drawing people to the Father. Jesus put it this way, No one can comes to the Father except through Me. Having had declared that He is the way, and the truth and the life, see John 14:6.

Think not that a Christmas nativity scene, or an Easter display of three crosses, the Ten Commandments or the Bible displayed in public places.

The wearing of a cross around ones neck, or the expression God bless you, Can’t be used by God’s Spirit to save a lost soul, or move a nation to return to its Judea Christian roots, is to think wrong.

The one purpose and intentional design of secularism is to bring to fruition the aforementioned through Psalms 2:3, “Let us break their bonds in pieces. And cast away their cords from us.” And I say, let it not happen!

As America moves to become more secularized, making America more hostile to Jesus Christ and His followers. What can we anticipate our future to look like. Here’s a glimpse, “Then they will deliver you up to experience unusual cruelty, and kill you. And you will be hated by all nations, for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, and will betray one another and will hate one another,” Matthew 24:9-10.

Then to compound things even more, this curse will manifest itself with even greater confusion. “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. Because lawlessness will be multiplied, with compassion one for another growing cold.” (cp. Matthew 24:11-12). Can you not see it happening?

The body of believers in Jesus Christ must mobilize and unite as one mighty army in order to protect itself. For both defensive purposes, and for evangelistic purposes.

For it is written, “But they that endures to the end, shall be saved. (cp. Matthew 24:13). Because it’ll take courage, and strength to execute a greater purpose with an intentional design. “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then the end come.” (cp. Matthew 24:14).

If you, like me, are determined to endure to the end with our various ministerial causes, Blessings. Which means you, like me are secure in Christ Jesus. We are the fortunate ones!

However, if that rational escapes you, give it the occasion to be experienced by becoming one with Jesus.

Get started by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if, our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

Making America Great Again

2021 is aging and unsettled. What will it bring as it ages towards 2022 and beyond? Not much worth our admiration. Because the world will go, as governments pave the paths.

With governments being confused because they are clothed with deception by the one who deceives the nations (cp. Revelation 12:9).

It was not always that way because the world could expect the United States to have a calming settling effect upon itself and the community of nations. Able to ease those fears, and give itself, and the world community of nations a sense of hope, as each year closed and a new year was born.

It’s very different now because the stabilizing influence by the people through Jesus is absent through out the United States. Making for a United States government that has no desire to be a stabilizing influence upon the world scene.

The world will enter each new year and exit the year towards a time never before experienced. At least that is the warning that Matthew offers as advice to the American people, its government and the world community.

Jesus put it this way, “There will be great trouble. Trouble that the world has never seen before and will never see again. I will intervene in order to spare Humanities extinction. Know this, I will do it for the sake of my people. (cp. Matthew 24:21-22).

Just where are we on that time line established by Jesus? Who knows, but this we know the world is more ugly through violence and greed. With increasingly torrid, and then freezing weather patterns.

Combined with assorted conditions in between which are devastating the water and food supplies. With some parts of the world reporting that whole bodies of water are drying up. Then we have the converse where flooding is doing the same.

Setting up conditions never seen or experienced by people before. Compounded by destabilized world economies. Contagious epidemic diseases. And never ending wars threatening the most secure of nations thought to be isolated from such wars and aforementioned experiences.

And, who are God’s people? They are within the body of the persecuted woman, the church and her off spring of Revelation 12:13.

And in those days, it’ll cost something to be a Christian. Jesus said, “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and kill you; and you shall be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.” (cp. Matthew 24:9).

Have you not noticed that it’s becoming unpopular to defend scriptural absolutes for life and liberty? If not, soon the hammer will fall crushing anyone not embracing the satanic doctrine of political correctness. Through the United Nations banner to bring the world together as an all inclusive body. Where it will be illegal to offend political correctness by speech or behavior.

It has been said, that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. We can’t rewind God’s time line. Neither has God relented on our responsibilities to prepare the way for the Kingdom of God. Jesus set the example, “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world, for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come.” (cp. Matthew 24:14).

And, what is this preaching of the gospel concerning the kingdom about? It’s about the overcoming the instigator of the aforementioned calamities and hardships.

As recorded, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath because he knows he has a short time,” (cp. Revelation 12:11-12).

The persecution of the woman, the church was made possible by the birth of the male child, Jesus. It’ll will only intensify because that’s the warning recorded from Revelation 12:13 which reads, “Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast down to earth he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.”

For more than two centuries, “The woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time from the presence of the serpent.” (cp. Revelation 12:14).

It could well be picturesque of the United States whose national symbol is that of the great bald eagle. In that picturesque wilderness where the United States was protected against all odds of survival against the worlds greatest of evils. The United States was born to be a nation that offered the world the riches form of government.

Not through secularism but through the blood of the Lamb. Eulogized through the word of their testimony for Jesus even unto death.That’s what made America great. If America returns to that model, she’ll be great again. And the community of nations will once again experience and cherish her calming effects. If not, the catastrophes have been set in motion as enumerated above.

Effective difference makers are those who understand that the process is not automatic. It doesn’t occur through any intellectual process.

Rather it’s done by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. From there being a difference maker starts. Often by sensing an inward passion for a particular cause. Nurture it to discover where it takes you. It’s important to study your Bible. Especially Romans – Philemon. Those scriptures are God’s particular declarations for our era of history. Be sure to be a frequent guest of Philippians 4:6-7.

Alex and his Grecian horse

“Foreign influence is truly the Grecian horse to a republic. We can’t be to careful to exclude its influence,” Alexander Hamilton, Pacificus, No. 6 July 17, 1793.

The state, and the church should see things from different perspectives. As far as the Grecian horse effect. Indeed the Grecian horse has gobbled up the American republic. As has the state, gobbled up the church resulting in it being its Grecian horse.

It is one reason upon many, as to why the church has become useless, and powerless, as an influence upon state affairs.

Certainly the church has behaved in such a way, so as to exclude its influence. Its influence has gotten so bad that people pray, and ask God to bless America. If you know your scriptures, then the best God can do for America, is tolerate her awhile longer.

Instead people should pray for God to curse America. Maybe with the people experiencing God’s curse upon America, it will serve as a wake up call. To slay those foes, who emerged from that horse to conquer the church. And thus return the church to its rightful place as shepherd of governmental affairs.

That’s the only way America will be what it once was. Which can be seen from from Matthew’s perspective, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hidden.

Because men do not light a lamp, and put it under a bushel. But on a lamp stand, and it gives light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in heaven.” Authoritative Scriptures Matthew 5:14-16.

That is the only prayer that will work for modern America. It’s a simple equation, prayer + action = turn around.

If the aforementioned is going to work, then the following is a spiritual prerequisite. You, therefore, must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles themselves with the affairs of this life, that they may please him, who enlisted him as a soldier. (cp. 2 Timothy 2:3-4).

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and idle babbling’s, for they will increase to more ungodliness. (cp. 2 Timothy 2:15-16).

But that’s advanced training, boot camp requires that one is right with Christ. Got it? Blessings! If not, you are invited to follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

the death march averted

The following is not very pleasant, albeit, our destiny. With many tales of adventure both evil and good. In dialogue, two biblical characters saw the process from this perspective. Man decays like a rotten thing, like a garment that is moth eaten.

Going on to say, man born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble. He comes forth like a flower and fades away. He flees like a shadow and does not continue.

Since his days are determined, the number of his months are with You. You have appointed his limits so that he can not pass them. Look away from him that he may rest, till like a hired man, he finishes his day.

And finally, man is also chastened with pain on his bed. And, with strong pain in many of his bones. So that his life abhors bread, and his soul succulent food. His flesh wastes away from sight. And his bones stick out which once were not seen. Yes, his soul draws near the pit and his life to the executioners.

But hope abounds, if there is a Messenger for him, a Mediator, one among a thousand, to show His uprightness. Then He is gracious to him, and says, deliver him from going down to the PIT. I have found a Ransom, his flesh shall be young like a child’s. He shall return to the days of his youth.

He shall pray to God, and He will delight in him. He shall see His face with joy, for He restores to man His righteousness. Then he looks at man and says, I have sinned, and perverted what was right, and it did not profit me.

He will redeem his soul from going down to the PIT. And his life, shall see the light. BEHOLD! God works all these things. Twice, in fact, three times with a man, to bring him back from the PIT. That he my be enlightened with the light of life.

Texts: Job 13:28; Job 14:1-2, 5-6; Job 33:19-30.

It’s a prophetic adventure about life, where the tale was one of sorrow turned to joy. Through God’s Ransom, Jesus Christ, and now Mediator between evil and good to the Father.

So that the Redeemer, not once or twice but three times shows patience and determination to offer His light. By saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the Light of Life,” John 8:12.

Make a difference, and change yourself through Christ,  and then change your world.

Having the light of life can’t be accomplished through an intellectual process. For those, who understand that, Blessings!

If that escapes ones intellectual processing. Everyone can experience the Light of Life by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10.

Then notice verses 11-13, all of which create the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world they will in the next.

human necessity and lawlessness

Hey there! Mr. and Ms. America and you kids, too. Is Daniel ringing the nations door bell with a message from God? With all kinds of calamities from bizarre weather, to rapid national acceptance of homosexuality.

Or perhaps manifesting itself through; what most never anticipated, and still don’t. Ultimate national destruction through a live entity called climate change. Which will eventually cause food shortages, runaway inflation and torrid unemployment. Personal and governmental bankruptcies! Why? Lesson never learned by most; you can’t abuse what God created, the heavens and the earth and everything therein.

As recorded, “The earth is the LORD’s, and its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of Hosts, He is the King of glory, Forever! (cp. Psalms 24:1-10).

No matter how it plays out, people with smarts should take it as serious wake up call. The larger question, is what to do about it; but first lets hear from Daniel. Who says “HE changes the TIMES and the SEASONS; HE removes KINGS and sets up KINGS; HE gives Wisdom to the Wise, and KNOWLEDGE to those who know UNDERSTANDING.” (cp. Daniel 2:21). Now that’s worth mastering. A journey this Padre is traveling.

As an empire, is the American one, DOOMED? And is a new global bully about ready to emerge? If so, would it be China? This Padre thinks not, but certain to be a major player on the world scene.

But it’s an evil already in place, hiding in mosques. Which are nothing more than Islamic military fortresses, camouflaged as religious institutions. The weaker an empire becomes the more devastating will be their attacks. Its been their global history for centuries. So why should it change in the 21st century?

But Islam will not have its global empire because the King of the North will trick them and destroy them. Maybe because Christendom didn’t take the Apostle Paul’s advice and get rid of them as recorded in Galatians 4:30.

But to be feared, are two unlikely forces, who will join together. And form a union with a third party, who together will set the stage for the extinction of humanity. With probable success, except for Christendoms sake it fails, who are those players? Studios of home biblical scholars, who exemplify the aforementioned truths of Daniel. One of God’s great historical forecasters.

Decision making to say the very least can be very nerve racking. Especially when the decision under consideration is clearly forbidden by secular and religious law. That’s exactly what a German university professor wrestled with when he decided that it was okay to ignore secular law, if a religious precedent could be found.

For this discussion the two men under consideration are Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who also happened to be a Lutheran clergyman. And Jesus Christ, who also is God.

First Bonhoeffer, because he was the author of a philosophical discipline he tagged as situation ethics. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, decided that all adverse conditions merited situational ethics response. Meaning that the situation that a person encountered dictates their response. Even when murder was being considered, as an option of his ethics.

Disobeying the laws of nation states, when their laws threatened the Christendom can be easily justified. But finding ethical justification for breaking God’s laws, presents a far greater rational of justification. If for no other reason, then the eternal consequences of God’s judgment.

Such a propositional justifiable ethic for murder would also have moral consequences for the clergy. Bonhoeffer must have considered how the public would view Christian’s when its clergy sanctioned murder.

Well the Lutheran church in Germany, as a body didn’t buy into his situational scheme of ethics. Didn’t matter Dietrich Bonhoeffer had made his decision, and the following is a part of his ethical rational.

Bonhoeffer lived during the time of Hitler’s Nazi Germany. He concluded that the Nazi doctrines were an abomination to God.

Therefore, as a disciple of Christ, he had to take some course of action to reverse the Nazi plan. The German Lutheran church had debated the problem of Nazism and found no remedy.

Especially, as to whether killing Hitler could be justified from a Christian perspective. Bonhoeffer could not wait for his churches resolution. He joined the underground, and they plotted to kill Hitler. He paid for his participation with his life.

Bonhoeffer, as a theologian knew that Lutheranism held the Ten Commandments in the book of Exodus to be the governing principles on matters of life and death. Exodus 20:13, “You will not kill.”

Dietrich looked to the founder of his faith, Jesus Christ. He discovered that Christ himself broke the law. To justify the breaking of the law, Jesus referred His critics to an Old Testament law breaker from the book of Samuel. David, and Christ used human necessity, as a justification to do something that was not lawful.

One day Jesus and His disciples were walking through a grain field on a Sabbath day. The disciples plucked the ears of grain, Mark 2:23. According to Jewish law that was considered work which was prohibited. Exodus 20:10 … “You will do no work. The LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it sacred,” v.11.

The enforcers of Jewish law were observing this, and confronted Jesus. They told Jesus that the behavior was in violation of the Sabbath day law, Mark 2:24.

Jesus brought to their attention what David did, when he and those with him were hungry, v 25. They went to the house of God, and ate bread that was only to be eaten by the priests. It was not lawful for others to eat the bread, v. 26. Setting a precedent for breaking the law in the future.

Jesus told the enforcers of Jewish law that the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath, v.27. Declaring that the Son of Man is LORD also on the Sabbath, v.28.

From the Christ example, Bonhoeffer thought that Christ most likely would have approved of killing Hitler. This was based upon Jesus reversing centuries of Jewish law by making it lawful to work on the Jewish Sabbath.

Thus making the Jewish law irrelevant to Christendom depending upon the circumstances. Concluding that Jesus Christ, himself was a practitioner of situational ethics.

The law was ignored to better accomplish human need. Therefore, the elimination of Hitler would also better accomplish human need.

If you are a student of scriptural history, then you know that God often used murder as a justification for sinful behaviors. Promising to do so, even as the church age moves to closure. Naysayers use such an argument to suggest that Christendom is hypercritical because our God who said, “You will not kill,” killed Himself.

Furthermore, he gave permission to others to murder. Here is one example, it’s found from 1 Chronicles 14:10, And David inquired of God, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? And will you deliver them into my hand?” And the LORD said to him. “Go up, for I will deliver them into your hand.”

More evidence, God was the originator of situation ethics and not Dietrich Bonhoeffer. And the church failed God, in Nazi Germany.

So how does all the aforementioned play out today? It plays out by becoming a master of situational ethics. The one that works best is to learn to act violently in a nonviolent manner. Because, only a motivated army of Christians will save America. Or will, Christendom duplicate the church in Nazi Germany?

Our personal desires; along with those desires for the nation, are not sufficient through intellectualization. Rather for completeness, it must be done through the spiritualization process through the crucified and resurrected Christ.

Blessed indeed are those who understand that process through experience. However, if that escapes your rationality it’s okay. Because, operating outside of ones spirituality is often the normal.

You are invited to experience the aforementioned by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. But know it can’t be an intellectual exercise.

Having followed those prompts notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

unsung heroes are violent non violently

If you are one of those people, who like the happy days of Sundays. In church; where nothing happens besides smiling and singing, and then listening to some knighted hierarchical theist, who is more into empire building than anything else. Then these discussions are not for you.

But on the other hand, if you have the spirit of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran clergyman in Nazi Germany. Who would not flee the country, but stayed to oppose Nazism. He was later imprisoned and executed. While in prison, knowing his fate, he had the strength to write manuscripts. Which were later published as books about the true cost of being a Christian.

Dietrich’s courage lives on to inspire the people belonging to Christ. Because the voice of God can never be silenced because of this Pauline promise, “For IF, we have been united together in the likeness of his death, certainly we shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,” Romans 6:5.

Meaning of course, that no matter whatever our fate, others will pick up His cross in the execution of His mission. And for those, who made the ultimate sacrifice, the likeness of His resurrection will someday occur. Then these discussions are for you.

Then you may want to join us,   and become part of an underground movement. Designed to defend Christendom, and advance the cause of Christ. Interested? Read on and become inspired.

One of the doctrines of situation ethics is to learn to be violent non-violently, an art taught by this Padre. Learn it! Get in touch!

Happy Days filled with smiles is for a future time. A time when Christ has established His Kingdom on this earth. For all of us believers, that will truly be a time for smiling and singing. In the meantime serious work remains to be done.

There is a huge difference difference being a church member and a Christ devotee! Got it because you know it to be true, because you have experienced it, Blessings indeed!

If that somehow escapes your reasoning, then you are invited to experience it for yourself. Carefully follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. It must be done in a sincere manner and not as an intellectual test.

Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality that so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

Sliding foot grip on America

Revolutionaries are capable of bringing about much good to society. However, one persons Revolution for the betterment of society, is another persons Demon for the destruction of that very society. Those opposites has plagued the church, and have destroyed it, with rare exceptions.

So this chat is for the few of the exceptional’s. And for the significant many out there, who left the organized church because of it various plagues, but for not their revolutionary Savior redeemer, Jesus Christ. So follow along, and maybe you’ll souldier up for some serious battles.

Every army has a commanding officer; ours is no different. Ours is God, who has wiped out entire civilizations. Because they angered Him over a behavior, or behaviors called sin. Today it seems that America has chosen to walk that sinful destructive route.

What’s most impressive about God is His arsenal of weapons. There is a weapon God uses that is most lethal, but not well understood, because it’s exercised in a nonviolent way.

We gain this insight from Daniel. Who was shown what God called a secret during a night vision. Once having received it, Daniel had the good sense to bless the name of God with a commitment to do so forever and ever. Because Daniel, was shown that wisdom and might are His.

Here is how God works violently in a nonviolent manner. According to Daniel’s night vision, “God changes the times and the seasons. He removes kings, and sets up kings. He gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to those who know understanding.” A nations dark and continual secret behaviors will always be revealed. With Daniel declaring the light is with God. And! America’s only hope.

In America, her dark and secret behaviors have often surfaced. As we know, that process has not always played out so well because of the folly of man. Somehow thinking that man knows better than God. But America time, and again, was spared by God’s light. How much longer will the Almighty be merciful?

Could this be how God’s lethal agent will be applied nonviolently because disrespecting Him has a limited life span. To Me belongs get even and payback. “Their foot shall slide in due time. For the day their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them will make haste.”

Could it be that the nations debt crisis becomes her God given calamity? Or could it be her blindness to sanction what God condemns?

Marriage isn’t a union, other than between a man and a woman. And the perceived make every thing right doctrine of political correctness, whereby, the state determines correctness of ideas, speech and behavior.

Anything outside of political correctness is a crime. Because it separates the nations people from being unified, as one in ideas, speech and behavior.

It’s always been governments intent to have its subjects think, speak and behave alike. In our time, it’s picking up steam. Through the nations academic institutions.

And utilized by the nations corporate conglomerates to make sure their work force is on board. Observations seem to indicate that more, and more people are walking lock stepped with such notions.

Perhaps it’s God’s way of making haste, as the American empire crashes.

And, America will slide into the abyss of nothingness with haste. With nations mocking us with laughter and with gleaming smirks. As they ask, how does it feel to be the servant and not the master?

A new of life is on its way, unless America is taught repentance. A violent art learned nonviolently from the two previous discussions. Or make one up yourself. So you few exceptions, and significant many learn the art and souldier up.

“And remember, there is a profound difference between try and do,” said Yoda.

Scriptural texts used, Daniel 2:19-22 and Deuteronomy 32:35.

Platitudes like that from Yoda can give one a bump in attitude. But to last; that attitude needs to be connected with Divine Providence, who dwells in all of us. It’s the very Spirit of our Creator, who gives life, and has the power to withdraw itself causing death.

To activate the Spirit filled life it’s necessary to be one with Him. If the reader understands that from experience, Blessed, are you!

If for some readers it’s not understood or experienced. You are invited to become one with Him. Do so by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. The notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

american lawlessness punished

When a nation loses the prestige that it once had; they become their misfortune, the plaything of rivals. So goes the way of the United States, as illustrated by the following.

As it becomes a cesspool of poverty, unless the following is read, understood and acted upon. Emitting a terrible stench of confusion, pain and vulnerability to personal and national security.

The Lion (Invincible America) worn out with age and feebleness lay breathing his last. First came a boar and with a blow from its flashing tusks took revenge on him for an old injury. Then a bull lowered its horns and gored its enemy’s body. An ass, seeing those attacks delivered with impunity, started kicking the Lion’s forehead with its heels.

The Lion was on the point of expiring. “It’s was hard enough to bear,” he said, “When those brave animals triumph over me. But as for you, you a shameful blot on creation, to be at your mercy as I die is like dying twice.” (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“The Mighty Fallen,” with emphasis this writer throughout.

For those who are scripture savvy, they know that America was destined for greatness. God first made America’s greatness known in Genesis 17:4 with these statement, “And I will make my covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.

Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked to him saying. As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall become the father of many nations.

Then the child of promise and of the spirit was born, Galatians 4:28, which says, “Now we. brethren, as Isaac was, are, children of promise. Isaac was the heir to the the Abrahamic covenant.

From which came our Judea-Christian heritage. America as a nation of promise is further developed in later chapters of Genesis and the book of Daniel.

Resulting in a nation with a legal system based around the Ten Commandments. Along with specific edicts from God that America used to develop its cultural and social envelop.

Such characterization for a people comes from Genesis 17:1b, “I am Almighty God, walk before Me blameless.” With the aforementioned in place, and an awareness of what God expects of us.

Forging the glory of the United States. “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,” Genesis 49:25.

And the American people, imperfect because no one, not even Abram could walk before God blameless. America through her people became the light of the world. Making America a city on a hill whose light could not be hidden. By God’s design America was destined to be that light that gives light to all who are in the house, Matthew 5:14-15.

America lived that destiny for a spell, but today is becoming the wilted leaf of the Psalmist. Who said, “The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away,” Psalms 1:4.

America may not believe it, but the nation is fast becoming a people that has lost its prestige. Its not because of misfortune though but by deliberate choice.

Becoming the plaything of her rivals, those rivals are characterized here as those who mock God. Who run their tusks, and horns into the sacredness of our Judea-Christian heritage, as if taking revenge for sin condemned.

Seeing the City on a Hill, as the enemy because God had the audacity to declare how people should behave. With even the most shameful of asinine behaviors smashing solid blows to the very heart that allowed America to light the world, determined now to defy God. By hiding the city on a hill, Christendoms light, by putting it under a bushel.

With Christendom being on the verge of expiring for lack of oxygen under that bushel. All she can do is remember her victories that shaped America as the stalwart example of everything good and profitable. Hoping for revival within her ranks, so as not to have to say to her once beaten rivals. Have mercy as I die. Because, my shame is like dying twice.

So what is killing Christendom, and if Christendom dies, so does America. For starters, its the world of the politician Who never take a controversial stance without a sense of public support.

Former President Obama did that; when he announced, that the federal government would no longer defend the nations, “Defense of Marriage Act.” A marital entitlement act which provided enumerated benefits to heterosexual couples. Arguing that it created unconstitutional entitlement denials to homosexuals who marry people of the same sex.

But Obama got it all wrong because marriage is an unexplainable miracle which is the miraculous joining of two opposite sex people, one male and the other female, as one. In Genesis, we find the following. Therefore shall a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh,” Genesis 2:24.

America’s enviable prosperity was based upon its adherence to its Judea-Christian traditions. Which was not just to frown upon homosexuality, but to condemn such behavior and even criminalizing such behavior. Honored by every state and the District of Columbia. Because Leviticus 18:22 records this law, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”

But America has a new agenda which is to shelf God, declaring a marriage is marriage. And people regardless of sexual preference should share the same entitlements. Not so, according to God almighty.

It’s a terrible thing when God gives up on people. The apostle Paul discusses this with us in the first chapter of Romans. Saying, “Wherefore, God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves,” Romans 1:24.

Why would God react in such away? “Because; they were willing to exchange the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped, and served, the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever, Amen,” Romans 1:25.

Christendom should not have allowed Obama to exchange the truth of God, for a lie with an ungodly acceptance of what God condemns.

If Christendom fails to stand up against, and shut down this acceptance of homosexuality. Then God will further shut down America. Think COVID-19, through its aftermath of new variants. Causing torturous deaths. And for those, who survive, menacing painful recoveries. Uncontrollable violence raping the nation. Soaring monetary increases for basic necessities. Which most likely, will plunge the nation into its worse recession ever. Aided, and nourished by climate change!

Because God is on record with the following. “Who knowing the judgment of God; that they who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them,” Romans 1:32.

Bleak judgment is promised for homosexuals and heterosexuals who find no fault with such behaviors.

Part of what Paul is sharing is explicitly found in, Romans 1:26-27. “For this cause, God gave them up to vile passions. For even their woman, exchange the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also did the men; leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lusts for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was their due.”

While sin is an individual matter the shameful error, again is for those who are scripture savvy, knowing that  sin has a collective fitting consequence. Consequences even upon the unsuspecting innocent because of a failure to condemn what God condemns. And condemnation must be more than vocal, it demands action. Which is the example, God established, for His people.

Christ didn’t die that brutal and savage death to be mocked. (cp, Hebrews 2:14; Galatians 6:7-8).

Actually America has died, all that remains is for her remains to turn to dust. Partly because of state, and federal legalization of gay marriages.

And with, “The Defense of Marriage Act” shelved it allows one less obstacle, for the defense of God’s gift to humanity. For those, who can’t see same sex marriages as a curse.

Sweeping away state rights, whose people have determine same sex marriages is a condemned curse. Forcing the states to honor gay marriages under the ‘full faith and credit’ clause of the U.S. Constitution. Forcing states like Florida to honor gay marriages that took place in any of the existing jurisdictions that have legalized gay marriages.

So the Obama administrations has had the distinction of having killed America. And in so doing, he has surrendered God’s protective shield that guaranteed her power, influence and prosperity at home and abroad.

All that remains is for the nations people to experience God’s displeasure’s. Until a time arrives, when God Himself will make America feel the full effect of the Lions pain and humiliation.

So Christendom must rise up for self’s sake, and for the glory of our Creator and Redeemer. And say, we’re tired of being tusks, horned and kicked. By restoring ourselves as the City on a Hill whose light can’t be hidden. Serving Jesus as the light to every room that says enter.

Lots of sketched history and prophecy aforementioned. Learn its depth, and make it personal knowledge through experience. Then use it for the defense of Christendom and America.

That personal knowledge goes beyond intellectualism because it’s all about ones spiritualization. If that is understood by the reader, Blessings! If not, you are invited to follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

intellectual violence cured

The road to immoral abasement is the road the United States had decided to travel. Becoming noticeable with the Warren court. When eight out of nine justices single handily plunged the nation in a direction, that is responsible for the violence that haunts America today. Saying by their ruling that, we will no longer tolerate an allegiance to God!

The insistence of the moral sanctity through God. By the Washington’s, Adam’s, Jay’s, and countless others elected or appointed to public service, ended with the Warren court. From that very day, and reaching us today freedom to verbalize allegiance to God in the public domain is illegal.

In 1968, the Warren Court gave standing to Plaintiff’s to sue the government, when it spends money to advance faith. Their heralded case, Flast -v- Cohen, established the Warren Test.

That public money can not be used to support non public schools. When that occurs people have standing to sue the federal government. However the Warren test has been broadened, and used to erase from the public domain any and all references to God. Giving people the right to claim in federal court a severe mental injury because of a reference to God in the public domain.

For some time an organization in North Carolina has been working diligently to return the Bible to our public schools. They are the National Council on Bible Curriculum in Public Schools or NCBCPS.

For interested people, in particular school districts, for a small fee, they will provide the necessary materials for approaching local school boards. Some of their material is in the form of a teachers guide. From which teachers, can teach an elective course in our high schools. This elective Bible course is an academic course. Approaching the Bible from a historical perspective. Which includes the literature and legal foundations for Western civilization. Archaeology, and art are also included in the curriculum.

With the school board approval such elective courses can be taught. The funding is provided from the school districts budget.

Physical violence in our public schools is making them war zones where the safety of everyone is in harms way. America is turning away from its rich heritage of reliance upon God. Putting in jeopardy the bountiful provisions, and protections God has blessed the nation with.

This is shared because such an elective course through out the nation in our public schools is a project in need of activation. For those interested in Hillsborough County Florida, please contact this writer through the navigation link. Together perhaps we can return God to His rightful place in our public schools. Or contact, the NCBCPS directly at 1 336 921 0070

The NCBCPS elective curriculum has found its way into hundreds of school districts in at least 41 states. Hopefully that is good, and encouraging news, for everyone interested in such an undertaking.

This is important because the most violent behavior is silent in its application. Because it does not get the public attention, as does physical violence which is always visible. Severing as an example, the George Floyd crisis.

Sometime ago the NCBCPS was sued by a group of parents in Ector County, Texas. Interesting enough is that the parents involved did not have any children taking the school districts elective course. Serving as a prime example of violence that is not physical but carved in intellectual rhetoric. But whose end result, is just as violent, as physical violence. Complaining that public school funding violated the rule of law established by the Warren Court.

Thus another attempt to silent the power of God’s word. Because God’s word has a ministerial effect, under any circumstance when presented. Suggesting that godliness can be very effective even when it is silent. But only when Christ is the power behind the silence.

That is the lesson of John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. no man comes to the Farther except through Me.” Just the presentation of the truth in an elective Bible course, or any other medium, allows Christ to bring people to the Father.

That is how light works. It penetrates the foulness of darkness. The lesson of John 12:46, “I have come as a light into the world, that whosoever believes in Me shall not abide in darkness.”

Our Christ is the unseen force, like the following that brings it altogether and makes it happen. “The wind blows where it will, and you hear the sound of it, but can’t tell where it came from, and where it goes, so is every person born of the Spirit.” (cp. John 3:80).

With this eternal promise, “So shall my word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but shall accomplish what I please.” (cp. Isaiah 55:11).

Being sympathetic to the above cause is appreciated and helpful. But it has its limitations because it lacks what is needed most spirituality. If you, understand that through experience. Blessings!

If not, you are invited to follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world they will in the next.

Setting the record straight

Or as Isaiah said, get ready for, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness. Prepare the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God,” Isaiah 40:3.

With John divinely chosen, echoing, “For this He who was spoken of by the prophet, Isaiah, saying, ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness. Prepare you the way of the Lord, and make His paths straight,'” Matthew 3:3.

Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like dove, and coming on Him. And suddenly a voice from heaven saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased,” Mathew 3:13,16-17.

With John declaring His purpose, “His separating fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean His threshing floor, and He will gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire,” Matthew 3:12.

Today that responsibility been passed unto Christendom. As declared, “I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and tribe, tongue and people.” Saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God, and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven, and earth, the sea, and the springs of water,'” Revelation 14:6-7.

There you have God’s assigned plan for Christians. In America it had its beginning as follows. There is little doubt that the people who fled Europe, and founded what would become the United States, did so with the aforementioned as a priority. The Mayflower Compact supports such a notion. It reads, “In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith. Having undertaken for the Glory of God and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the Presence of God and one another, a covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by virtue hereof to enact constitute, and frame such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General good of the Colony; unto which we promise subscribe our names at Cap Cod the eleventh of November, in the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James of England, France and Ireland the eighteenth and Scotland the fifty-fourth. Anno Domine, 1620.” (Anno Domine, year of our Lord)

With the Mayflower Compact established a precedent for the other colonies, as they established their own governments. By the time that the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, the thirteen original colonies had some form of a Christian state sanctioned religion. As a people of these United States, we are fortunate to own, Article One, of our Bill of Rights which separates religion from the state.

To this day, we as a people are still engaged in keeping religion out of government and government out of our lives. Free to worship God, or not to do so, but duty bound as Christians to make sure America legislates Christendoms, Judea-Christian legacy.

Christendom is failing miserably with that responsibility today, It’s because spiritually America has become a diseased nation. The nations purposefully designed foundation is dying.

But it appears that it’s never to late to repair that foundation. Because we have these words, “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten; be zealous, therefore, and repent,” Revelation 3:19.

But there will come a time, when God has had enough. And America will die a slow, but pitiful death. “But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against the people, till there was no remedy,” 2 Chronicles 36:16.

So Christendom, wake up, and return America to the origins of its Mayflower Compact.

The emphasis is on Christians within Christendom. And not churches. Because unfortunately, so many churches are themselves diseased. And are now, pursued by the Chroniclers declaration.

So if you understand that emphasis, Blessings! And if not, it begins by applying the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all if which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross, in this world they will in the next. In the meantime join we Christ souldire’s to re-establish the intent of the, Mayflower Compact. Collectively or Individually!

America America what have u done

America America, look at what you’re becoming. Thus says the LORD. “Cursed is the man, who trusts in man. And makes people their strength, whose heart departs from the LORD. For he shall be like a bush in the desert, and shall not see when good comes. But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabitable salt land.” (cp. Jeremiah 17:5-6).

Don’t you remember what you once were? Here’s a reminder. “Blessed are the people who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD. For they shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river. And will not fear, when heat comes, but its leaf will be green. And will not be anxious in the year of the drought, nor will it cease from yielding fruit.”(cp. Jeremiah 17:7-8).

America, America what have you done? You have lost your trust and obedience to God. Replacing Him with a strange notion that biblical stuff is outdated and not needed. God calls it mockery and promises that He will not be mocked. Because what is sown, is reaped. (cp. Galatians 6:7-8).

The test caused by time will find those rooted in hope singing the praise of their redeemer, with good cause. While those who trusted in human ingenuity will dwell upon parched and uninhabitable lands, and wonder, what went wrong.

If the current governmental trends continues; by legalizing  the collection of abominable behaviors, that God condemns. Then all of America; will become those parched lands, wondering what went wrong.

America desperately needs a spiritual revival that returns America to complete reliance upon God Almighty. In that this is July, the month we celebrate democracy, the most magnificent form of government ever to have existed.

It should be noted that God is the originator of democracy. Because democracy, is about freedom to decide. As is our individual relationship with Him.

But that relationship isn’t automatic. It too is about freedom to choose. If you understand that, Blessings! If not understood, then start the Christ way by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next!

After you’ve become a part of our Christ family, you need to start studying your Bible. Because, that’s how God talks to us today.

Christ enlightenment make it yours through Ephesians 1:17-23. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory. May give to you; the the spirit of wisdom, and revelation, in the knowledge of Him.

That the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know, what is the hope of His calling for you. And what, are the riches of His inheritance in the saints.

And, what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe. According to the working of His mighty power, which He worked when He raised Christ from the dead. And, seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places. Far above all principalities, powers, might and dominions. And above every name that is named, not only in this world, but in the world to come.

And has put everything under His management, and made Him to be the head of the church. Which is His body; the fullness of Him, who fills, all in all!
