ghosts and goblins

Tis the time for the paranormal. A time when the unexplainable occurs. An awareness that the unexplainable goes beyond ghosts and goblins by creating a sense that it it’s not make believe.

There is a land of make believe. A place of fantasy and haunted experiences. Its got to be so, or why would so many people argue that make believe is real. So we’ll see, if it’s make believe or not. Time will tell which it is because from that ancient land comes the eerie glow of surprise desperate to burst over the horizon and do what needs to be done. And that is more scary than any ghosts, or goblins paranormal adventures of the season.

They say hindsight is better than foresight for settling the real from the unreal. So at the beginning of the modern era lived a guy said to be a seer. And we all know that a seer is a person, who is able through the supernatural to see what the real is all about.

He said this, times will produce plagues like the Black Death. A plague which killed 75-200 million people through out the known world during the years of 1346-53. Only He didn’t call them plagues. He referred to them as pestilences.

They come out of nowhere, after apparent eradication. Like the Ebola virus which arrived on the world scene from Africa. With the potential to match or exceed that fourteenth century plague.

People globally have every right to be afraid despite what their government is saying about containment. Especially since its suspected that Ebola can be airborne. Global travelers can bring the virus with them and incapacitate a communities faster than one day turns into the next day, And that’s just one eerie glow of surprise desperate burst over the horizon and do what needs to be done all over again. Think of Ebola as an euphemism for many other deadly pestilences like the concern about a deadly flu virus sure to kill many apart from being vaccinated. The constant fear is that virus might adapt making vaccination ineffective. Like the reborn threat of the measles virus. The constant challenge posed by ever adapting death threat from that menacing mosquito.

And now we have COVID-19 that the bump in the White House says its nothing to worry about because soon it’ll be gone. But Americans know better sensing it’s not going to go away anytime in the near or distant future. How many more lives will this goblin capture, as we wait for a magical cure from a vaccine? And very troubling is the emerging concern about the crippling side effects after one survives that pandemic? With the concern that even with a vaccine immunity may not occur!

Then there is ISSI! How eerie is that glow on the horizon bursting over and doing what needs to be done? A non-uniformed army without a navy or air force but with lots of determination. Fighting with weapons taken from fleeing armies trained and equipped by the worlds greatest super power. Who doesn’t have any money except perhaps what it borrows from China. And who, is an ally of Iran and Russia. Tis the season for the paranormal that will not be defeated. Despite what that pestilence called trump declares.

Why such pestilences and war? This is the answer from another seer. For if the firstfruit is holy (Jews), the lump (Gentiles) is also holy; if the root is holy (Israel) so are the branches (House of Israel-America foremost among the House of Israel), so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree. (Source:Romans 11:16-17).

Know this with absolute certainty Israel as the root of God Almighty gave birth to the House of Israel, particularly the United States. Antisemitism is growing in America and throughout the world. Which is the surest way to bring God’s judgment upon the United States, and all other nations, who still are determined to eradicate what is impossible to eradicate because God Almighty said so! The Israeli American grafted rooting is as sacred as marriage between a man and a woman. The latter in it self has put Uncle Sam in his grave. The former will fill his grave with dirt. Making the United States an irrelevant nation. Therefore, to reject Jesus Christ as ones Savior is a sin. Which will bear judgments upon both individuals, as well as their nations. In the very real now and in the hear after because, “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” (Text:Hebrews 9:27). And life proves that dying can be terrifying and a gruesome experience.

And so it will it will be for the House of Israel, unless some Noah’s are found. Who can move God to be merciful again because these Noah’s will find a way to persuade God to change His mind. Because God is looking for people who are just and perfect in their generation. People who walk with God. (Text:Genesis 6:9 and 2 Chronicles 16:9).

God’s chronicler declares our liberation to occur through prayer and this padre suspects action. That action to be determined individually, as each stirs their churches into action. Because the church is God’s perfect remedy, for Americans, who have forsaken Jesus and turned against Israel. And thus, sparing the nation from becoming a foregone people through the crushing judgments of God. Just like it was in the days of Noah.

O! How awesome are the weapons God has at His disposal to humble and if necessary to destroy the arrogant. Some of those weapons He has put into our hands. None greater than this one given to us through another of His chroniclers. “If my people, who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to their prayers made in this place.” (Texts:2 Chroniclers 7:14-15).

Texts for pestilences and wars:Matthew 24:7.

over coming hate

“You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still like air, I will rise!” Maya Angelo.

“We do not lose heart! Even though the outward person is dying, yet the inward person is being renewed day by day. Because, our afflictions are for a moment. They are working within us for a far more exceeding end during the now and the hereafter.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 4:16-17).

This Padre is a strong advocate for the memorization of scriptures. When one is having a, Maya Angelo, experience an awareness of overcoming over shadows the cruelty of the moment and through its duration.

The primary difference between the written word of God and all other books. Is that our Bible is a book of spirituality that connects us with our Creator Savior. Impacting our souls which is our consciousness, the mind body connection. And our Spirit, the inner God awareness bring it all together.

It can’t be learned. It can only be experienced. While all other books can impact only our souls our humanness. But absent any  connection between our humanness with ones God awareness.

While those of us made righteous through His shed blood, and His miraculous resurrection from among the dead. Something very unique occurs. Our spirit which all mortals have but it is inactive. Until we are made one with Him. Then our bodies become the temples of the living God. And recorded, “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God and they will be My people.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 6:16b).

You’ll know that it’s all real, when you can connect with following through your Spirit and soul. “Do you not know that as many of us were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death.

Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in the newness of life.

For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection. Knowing this that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.

For he who has died is free from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him. Knowing that Christ having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death He died; He died to sin once for all, but the life He lives, He lives to God.” (cp. Romans 6:3-10).

Y Roe-v- Wade should b upheld

It’s desirable that, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and the other Justices should vote to up hold, Roe -v- Wade. Because in a democratic republic like ours, it’s the responsibility of the government to guarantee individual choice. Even when it is in direct opposition to Biblical teaching.

Why is that so, some might ask angrily? Because in a democratic republic, we have a separation between church and state. The church changes through prayer what the state legislates. Especially, when it has a Biblical foundation, as does life. However, the impact of prayer should impact the parties wanting to end a life. Meaning both father, and mother married or not. Among the communities of nations only China exceeds the Unites States in aborted babies.

It’s estimated that since 1973, Roe -v-Wade, more than 60 million babies have been aborted! What does the Bible say about that? “I ( God) will not be mocked! Do a wrong and experience wrong. Do the opposite and experience life eternal.” (cp. Galatians 6:7-8). “Don’t kill the innocent!” “God hates those who shed innocent blood!” (cp. Exodus 23:7; Proverbs 6:17). Consequences: “But …. murderers ….  their part is to experience the second death. (cp. Revelation 21:8).

Escape is possible through the shed blood of Christ because He bore our quilt. “All have sinned.” “Christ Himself shared in the same, so that death would be destroyed.” (cp. Romans 8:34; Hebrews 2:14).

Needed forgiveness? Follow the prompts recorded in Romans 10:9-10. Guaranteed escape from the second death. (cp. Romans 10:11-13).

This Padre’s greatest complaint against the church is that the church depends upon the state to do what the church should be doing. That weakens, and eventually will destroy both institutions. And it is very apparent, that is what is happening in these United States.

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound and mysterious creation to every other created baby,” Charles Dickens.

So said the Psalmist, not by his own accord but by the very dictate of our Creator, “For you formed my inward parts in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well. (cp. Psalms 139:13-16).

How is that awareness accomplished? Through praying prayers in accord with the following. “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth (You shall not murder, Exodus 20:13). My word  shall not return to Me void, but will accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing which I sent it.” (cp, Isaiah 55:11).

It’s all bundled up in the following, “And now abides faith, hope and love, these three, but the greatest of these is love!” (cp. 1 Corinthians 13:13).

This is faith, “But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.” (cp. Romans 8:25. This is hope, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen where not made by the things which are visible. (cp. Hebrews 11;3). And love works as follows,”But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for they who come to God must believe that He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek him.” (cp. Hebrews 11:6).

And no one, no matter what their philosophy can escape this, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. (cp. Romans 1:20).

art of warfare

“Anybody can become angry, that’s easy! But to be angry with the right causes, and to the right degree, and at the right time, and for right way. That is not within everybody’s power. And, it’s not easy!” Aristotle.

Executing the aforementioned: Carefully examine and let Aristotle’s behavioral critique be your guide. It’s best summed up by Sun Tzu, who cautioned, “Be extremely subtle to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of your opponents fate. Meaning among other attributes, no bragging!

If one is gloating, that absences one from the state formlessness and soundlessness. Giving your supposed conquered foe avenues for retaliation. Usually they have more money, so skilled non-violent gorilla warfare is a must.

The only exception is when the matter is litigated in court. There one wants to be seen as a polite, reasonable  litigator. One will not leave loved, but one will leave respected! Win or lose, admiration can alter behavior either way.

Aristotle also said, “A friend to all is a friend to none.” As a social activists engaged in change, one has to be careful concerning inclusion. Because, betrayal is a card some play for assumed personal gain. But the grater harm is the sabotage of ones project.

amy coney barrett

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York got it right, saying, “The American  people will never forget this blatant act of bad faith. It’ll go down as one of the darkest days in the 231 year history of the United States!”

Barrett’s elevation to the Supreme Court sealed the coronation of the republican part. as the party of fascism! With laboring Americans, in the work place experiencing what republicanism represents, which pure authoritarian oppression of basic human rights. Make no mistake the republican party is all about making the rich richer and the poor poorer.

America has no future because republicans have ruined any chance for unifying a nation already bitterly divided. Republicans have made it clear all the matters is power. So democrats must defeat trump, regain the Senate and build on majority in the House of Representatives. And quickly move to pack the Supreme Court, so that republican fascism can be on its way to being defeated.

And equally important democrats must led the nation in the defeat of COVID-!9. It should be obvious that trump and his fascist colleagues in the Senate aren’t capable of doing so!

On top of all this drama, with the defeat of trump the nation will most likely become engaged in another civil war. Why? Because 45 has announced that he’s not leaving office! Declaring, “The election was rigged.”

As the deliberations were finalized concerning the Constitution of the United States 133 years ago, Ben Franklin emerged from Constitutional Hall, and immediately a woman asked, “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy? The answer was immediate, “A republic, if you can keep it!”

Today the answer could be very different. Because the republic could be lost and replaced by a self serving dictatorial regime. Supported by a collection of thugs called republicans in the Senate, the House Of Representatives and now, the Supreme Court!

And to add to the drama, how will the American people respond, if the republic is lost? Roll over belly up, or say Hell, no, the Republic will be reestablished! But to what extent, and at what cost?

Who will lead the way? Certainly not Biden because he’s a belly up kind of guy. Hopefully, Kamala Harris, a modern era, Joan of Arc. An ordinary woman, who believed that God had chosen her to lead France to victory during the seemingly endless war with England.

unwinding the wound

Our world is seriously screwed up supposedly agreed by most earthlings. This is not a paradise as intended. But that’s what happens, as a result of our Creator allowing for independent decision making.

What plagues us is a disease diagnosed as spirituality. There is a cure, first through the personage of Jesus Christ, then by learning how to apply His divine word which is Him to our lives.

It’s not an easy task to accomplish because the  churches have also screwed up big time. Acerbated by the many, many ism’s scattered across the landscape. Each arguing that they have the ear of God, when in reality few do.

Most are pompous empire builders skilled in the arts of deception and empire building. And should be looked upon as entrepreneurs, and therefore, taxed by the government for the varied products they sell.

With the monies being funneled through governmental social services. Distributed to eliminate homelessness, hunger and inadequate health care and more.

Of course strict auditing is a must because the government cheats also. Yes, it is implied, religionist cheat too. It just very hard to audit churches because they scream infringement upon the separation of church and sate.

From what has been written one might conclude that this writer is not a Christ follower. Quite to the contrary this writer is very much a Christ follower.

From a personal perspective, and from a scriptural perspective this is the way of the fortunate.

The Apostle Paul writing in behalf of himself and Esaias, and no doubt many others like myself, as a testament to Divine Providence. “Some are found that sought Him not, and He was made manifest to them that asked not of Him.” (cp. Romans 10:20)

Don’t know how it occurred with Esaias, concerning Paul, it occurred while he was on his way to arrest people who had become Christians. Concerning myself, it occurred in the most unsuspected and undesirable of environments.

Admittedly the Bible is a complex book. There are parts of the Bible that don’t apply to our modern era. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some applicable teachings therein for us today. However it requires considerable Biblical awareness. For starters carefully examine the book of Romans. Perhaps starting with chapter three. List questions that you want answered. Write the answers done.

Continue reading and studying the rest of Paul’s writings. 1 Corinthians through Philemon. From there move on to Hebrews, and elsewhere, letting your interest dictate your study. A good study Bible is of course is a prerequisite. Highly recommended is the Amplified Study Bible.

Remember the Bible is a book about spirituality for spiritual people. Read Romans 10:9-10, apply the prompts if necessary. And then rejoice, note verse 11. Speaking for myself, when I followed those prompts. The next morning I new that I was a different person. But I needed an explanation, and months later I found it in 2 Corinthians 5:17.

riff between science and God

“The more time, and devotion one spends in the worship of false gods, the less likely one is to spend in the worship of the True One. As a blind man has no idea of colors, so we have no idea of the manner by which the all wise God perceives and understands all things,” Sir Isaac Newton.

All that may be true from a scientific perspective but it’s not true from a experiential experience. Science in itself is a false god. Because some are so entrenched by scientific revelations that science becomes god.

Among his intellectual accomplishments, he was also a theologian. For most science and a true God experience are not reconcilable. So Newton used the color idiom to explain the rational for the separation between science and God.

Perhaps, Isaac, had settled his own dilemma concerning science and God. For himself, and others through the following scriptures.

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven. And they do not return to Me. But they water the earth preparing it for life sustaining substance. All designed for the sower’s use. (cp. Isaiah 55:8-10).

Then the sower becomes the qualifier between science and the one and only true God as shown from the following scriptures. “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth. It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please. And it shall prosper in the thing which I sent it. cp. Isaiah 55:11).

Life in all manifested forms is miraculous. Especially, the life transformed by the word of God. It can’t be manufactured, although that is what religion does. It’s Newton’s religious falsehoods of worship. It can only be experienced through the Sower’s planting of the seed. The promise is eternal. The seed will not fail, but will create life eternal sustainability.

Life is complex, and can be extremely unsettling. But for those, who can identify with this scripture the unsettling complexities of life are no more. “Therefore, we do not lose heart. Even though the outward person is dying, yet the inward person is being renewed day by day.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 4:16).

angels and beyond

“I can calculate the motion of the heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people, What we know is a drop in the bucket, what we don’t know is an ocean,” Sir Isaac Newton.

That is why people should study the Bible from a hermeneutics exegesis point of view. Meaning a biblical study of theological principles. Because the Bible serves as food for ones body, and nourishment for ones bones. (cp. Proverbs 3:8). Thus being able to calculate the madness of people.

And enjoy, extraordinary experiences like the following. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good. Blessed are the ones who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!

There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger, but those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing. Come you people listen to me (King David). I will teach you to hear the LORD.

Who are the people who desire life, and loves many days that they may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit, Depart from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous. cp. Psalms 34:7-15).

Remember, The eyes of the LORD run to and fro through out the whole earth, to show himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:9).

This writer is not there yet, but substantial progress has been, or this discussion would never have been launched.

Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation. (cp. Hebrews 1:14).

He shall give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up with their hands lest you dash your feet against a stone. (cp. Psalms 91:11-12)

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for some by so doing have unwittingly entertained angels. (cp. Hebrews 13:2).

get up and doers how it is done

“Live your life as an Exclamation and not an Explanation,” Sir Isaac Newton. But to Isaac that was a formidable task, for he said, “To myself, I am only a child playing on the beach while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.”

Centuries later, Rep. John Lewis by personal example showed get up and doers from every discipline how its done. Using a genre not available Newton, the internet, “Don’t get lost in a sea of despair, be optimistic. Our struggle is not a struggle of a day, a week, a month or a year, it is a struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.”

“Courage is contagious. When a brave person takes a stand the spines of others often stiffen,” Billy Graham.

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over, if you just sit there,” Mother Teresa.

Now putting it all together so its possible to be a human wrecking machine. Blessed is the person who walks not in the council of the ungodly, nor stands in the paths of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.

But their delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His ways they meditate day and night. They shall be like a tree planted by the rivers water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatever they do shall prosper. (cp. Psalms 1:1-3).

The opposition of one or many are destined to defeat. Maybe not over night, but certainty in due time. Because, They are the opposite of our four protagonist and as such are not so, but are like chaff which the wind drives away.

They are the kind of people, who will not do well, when standing before Christ when everyone will be judged.

For the LORD knows the way righteous of the righteous, all others shall perish. Exegesis of Psalms 1:1-6; Revelation 20:11-15.

two ways

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your existence is an act rebellion,” Albert Camus.

“Now thanks be to God who always leads us to triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are the fragrance of God among those who are being saved and those who are perishing,” Apostle Paul. (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15).

nothing but grotesqueness from trump

“I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic. Each of us puts in one little stone, and then you get a great mosaic in the end,” Alice Paul.

For Alice, it was the women’s suffragist movement. A battle won, but the war still continues. As more women seek, and attain political offices, male chauvinism is sure to be dispatched to the graveyard. Thus ending centuries of war! But, not as long as trump is around! The world knows 45′ ugly history with women. Trump is a dangerous misogynist!

If a survey were taken among Republican office holders in House of Representatives and the Senate, and honesty prevailed. The House and Senate would be seen as chauvinistic. While the converse would prevail, among democrats.

Many women attest to the fact that they don’t like the way the president talks about women. However, they argue there are more important issues than the way 45 talks about women.

What they may well fail to understand, is that his misogyny, is an indicator of a deep rooted psychologically disturb person. People can not say, and act the way 45 acts and be mentally healthy. For love, and devotion to country that he brags about, trump should submit himself to psychiatric evaluation.

Pay attention to the presidential debate tomorrow and the way he treats the debate moderator, Kristen Walker. 45 has already tagged her as a, “dyed in the wool radical left democrat.” Anyone who, thinks that’s normal needs a psychiatric evaluation themselves

45 is upset that his mike will be turned off. So he can’t interrupt Biden with his senseless rants, which he did, and will continue to do because 45 can’t debate the issues. Despite 45′ mike being turned off, he’ll shout over the dead mike. Just to cause confusion and to avoid debate accountability. 45 has gone on the attack stating, “the debate is rigged. 45 lacks presidential demeanor! 45 plain, and simple is a presidential disaster!

Perfect example 45 calls Dr Fauci, the nations highly esteemed infectious disease expert a disaster and an idiot. Had 45 followed his advice, families who are suffering from unnecessary grief would now be enjoying the presences of deceased loved ones.

Simply put trump, has grossly mismanaged everything about COVID-19. Despite all we know about his presidential ineptness beyond COVID-19, 45 just might win a second term.

Causing many to wonder how could so many Americans bring themselves around to see a successful presidency from such an observable flawed person. Is it party loyalty over reality. We see that reality clearly demonstrated though republican senators. As well. as those republicans through out the House of Representatives.

Few, if any, are comfortable having to deal with this coronavirus into the unknown future. The Apostle Paul offers this advice. “But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.”Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (cp. Romans 8:25 and Hebrews 11;1).

It works like this, “For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope, for why does one still hope for what one sees. Note, saved, it only works for those who are a part of the Christ family. Note again, not by church or religious affiliation. But by following the prompts recorded in Romans 10:9-10. Which reads, “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the scriptures says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. For there is no distinction between people. For the same Lord is over is over everyone who call upon Him. For whoever calls upon Him will be saved.” (cp. Romans 10:11-13).

The aforementioned can’t be intellectualized. It can only be experienced individually. You don’t join anything and it doesn’t cost anything. It’s free and it’s simply called grace.

When those prompts are followed this will be your experience. “And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (cp. Philippians 4:7).

dealing with adultery

Jesus had finished teaching a community of people about discipline and forgiveness. Now it was time to move As He traveled, many people followed Him. Maybe because they were intrigued by His abilities to do the unusual. While others were troubled by His apparent willingness to ignore well established traditions.

Among the people were some legal experts. And, they wanted to know His views concerning marriage. So at the appropriate time. They asked Jesus, if it was lawful for couples to divorce for any reason?

Jesus responded saying, “Have you not read that He made them male and female.” Going on to say, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife, and the two, shall become one. So then, they are no longer two but are now one. Therefore what God has joined let no one separate. (cp. Matthew 19:4-6).

That didn’t satisfy them, so they asked Jesus, “Why did Moses make it legal for a certificate of divorce to be given. Jesus responded, It occurred because of marital infidelity.” Jesus this warning, ‘Remarriage is forbidden except for marital infidelity. Apart from such a cause, remarriage would be an unlawful act of adultery under the Mosaic law. (cp. Matthew 19:7-9).

The Mosaic law is no longer biding. It ended with the cruel murder of Jesus. Brutally nailed, and tortured, He bleed to death. His shed blood made complete atonement for all the Mosaic laws.

Paul reiterates the oneness of married couples. (cp, Ephesians 6:31). But he goes on to call the oneness of married couples a great mystery between we mortals and Christ. (cp. Ephesians 6:32). And concludes, by offering this advice in order to avoid marital infidelity. “Nevertheless let each one, love each other as one loves themselves.” (cp. Ephesians 6:33).

This new approach concerning marital infidelity is not a license to freely engage in such behaviors. Loving ones partner, as one loves one self mostly likely serves as a weak deterrent.

The ultimate deterrent is in and through Jesus Christ. It’s amazing how the word of God strengthens ones resolve not to engage in such behaviors. If you read, and absorb the following scriptures, you will be amazed how sin loses its appeal. You’ll discover that it’s God in you, who is becoming the attitude changer. (cp, Romans 6:1-10).

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Verses 1-2.

Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in the newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection. Verses 3-5.

Knowing this, that our old man was crucified  with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin. For he, who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe we shall also live with Him. Verses 6-8,

Knowing that Christ having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death He died, He died to sin once for all, but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Verses 9-10.

flip side of existentialism

“There is no human nature, since there is no god to conceive it. Still, somewhere in the depth of ourselves, we all harbor an unsatisfied  thoughtful sadness that quietly awaits a funeral,” Jean Paul Sartre.

Sartre, and all other existentialist, think people are entirely responsible for what they make of themselves. Existentialism is wrapped up in truth as well as falsehoods. Which of course is the curse of being a mortal being.

First of all, God created the firsts humans male and female. And in His own image, and then gave them global authority. (cp. Genesis 1:27-28). With so few words, we have proof for our natures. Contrary to Sartre’s existential arguments.

Human ingenuity which is the never ending drive for human advancement. It’s so prevalent that its taken for granted. Like a cure for COVID-19 pandemic. God could have given that charge to any other non-human species.

Simply because He is God! He has no boundaries or limitations. This is clearly established when He Had Isaiah write. “I am the LORD, that is My name, and My glory, I will not give to another. Nor My praise to carved images [existentialism]. Behold the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare [human ingenuity], before they spring forth, I declare, before they spring forth I tell you of them.” (cp. Isaiah 42:8-9).

The above aforementioned is in dispute between existentialists and creationists. But what is not in dispute is death. Sartre unsettling  concession concerning the funeral experience is a God instilled reminder concerning death. James put it this way, “Come now, you say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit. But tomorrow may be very different from what is expected. For life is but a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” (cp. James 4:13-14).

One way or another, we all know, “The days of our lives are seventy years, and by reason of strength they are eighty, your boast is only labor and sorrow, for it is soon cut off, and we fly away” (cp. Psalms 90:10).

Both the existentialist and creationist will experience death. But there is life after death. And the outcomes are very different. But that differences is for another discussion.

This writer is a creationist but is thankful for certain aspects of existentialism. Which is the utilization of the mind in conjunction with God for the now and future.

Here is one of those thoughts that can’t be learned. It comes by experience, and it’s about knowing the short comings of existentialism and the strengths of inward creationism. “We do not lose heart even though our outward self is dying, yet the inward self being renewed.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 4:16).

Here’s an account about life before being in our mothers womb. “My frame was not hidden from you, when  I was made in secret. And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. For your eyes saw my substance being yet unformed. And in Your book they are all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them,” Psalms 139:15-16).

Then our parents came together, as miracles in themselves. Through the oneness of God’s purpose for them and us. “For You formed my inward parts, You covered me in my mothers womb. I will praise you, for I am wonderfully made, marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” ( cp. Psalms 139:13-14).

For the true creationist, both birth, and death should be celebrations.

“People think that talking is a sign of thinking. It isn’t! On the contrary, it’s a mechanical dodge of the body to relive oneself of the strain of thinking,” Aleister Crowley.

And for that reason alone, 45 must be defeated, 03 November 2020.

Anyone who thinks that their better off since it took charge of the Peoples House are like their god, people of the mouth and not the brain.

Despite the naysayer’s, here’s the best reason for dumping trump. “We don’t have to sit on our hands, as our planet burns. For young people, climate change is bigger than election or re-election. It’s about life or death!” AOC.

horrors and beyond

“The horrors that we have seen, the still greater horrors we shall presently see, are not signs that rebels, insubordinate, untamable men are increasing in number throughout the world, but rather that there is a constant increase in the number of obedient docile men,” George Bernanos.

Seventeen days remain for the electorate to decide if they’ve had enough of trumpian horrors by denying 45 a second term for even greater horrors.

If 45 gains a second term, it’ll be because of the docility of eligible voters. Who for a number of reasons, stayed home, giving the few permission to remake America in the horrors of 45.

over coming stephen king

“We lie best, when we lie to ourselves,” Stephen King.

Yep! King got it right. It’s the lie most tell themselves that there is no hell or heaven. Any after life experience is nothing more than ones in ability to except finality. Death ends all awareness about everything.

Such reasoning can only be proven absurd by experience while we are still absent the grave yard.

So, I’m forced to share some of my experiences. I was very angry, my mother had been murdered. I wasn’t interested in religion. Hate, and violence became my forte. There’s no telling where all that would have led me, had it not been for an unwanted and unexpected happening. I was given a book by the late, Billy Graham. I read the book, and found myself on my knees. Acknowledging myself as a sinner and accepting Jesus as my Savior.

The next morning I realized that something unexplainable had occurred. Plain and simple, I was very different from the person I was yesterday. After months of searching the Bible trying to discover what happened to me. Bingo, before my very eyes were the words explaining what had happened to me. “Therefore if any person is in Christ, they have become a new creation. Old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:17).

Later I discovered this recording, Said Esaias, “I was found of them that sought me not, I was made manifest to them that asked not of Me.” (cp. Romans 10:20).

That also had been my experience. Having no church experience and rather isolated from normality. Studying the scriptures became my forte. This scripture has long intrigued me. “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined He also called, whom He called, these He also justified, and whom He justified, these He glorified.” And, “Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.” (cp. Romans 8:29-30; Ephesians 1:5, 11).

One last expression. As an infant child, I was told that I’d become a priest. Having had numerous angelic experiences this scripture is very meaningful to me. “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation.” (cp. Hebrews 1:14).

death watch 4 America

America is at a survival crossroad concerning her future. Causing, Sen. Mitt Romney R-Utah to reprimand both Trump and the Democrats for ‘vile’ and ‘hate filled’ politics. Which comes, as no surprise to the electorate.

Trump is the sole reason for the nations vile and hate filled politics. 45′ never ending idiotic attacks upon everyone holding an opinion that differs from his. Satan has been the labeled the father of lies. Trump must be a favorite relative because he’s always lying. His constant encouraging of terrorists groups like the Wolverine Watchman to reek havoc across America. When it comes political views opposite his. To safe guard voting locations against certain voting fraud. Be on guard, and ready to respond if Biden/Harris are the declared winners. It’s necessary according to 45 because they can only win by executing the greatest scam in history.

Causing former CIA director John Brennan, who served four presidents to call into question Trump’s mental acuity and fitness for office! Going on to declare, “The next 100 days leading to the inauguration will be especially dangerous. I think Trump is going to resort to any tactic to try to emerge victorious from the election. He’s going to pursue a legal challenge to an unfavorable outcome. He may, in fact, embolden his supporters to try and rally in the streets in support his reelection. I believe that these will rock bottom times for us.” Read his book, Undaunted: My Fight Against America’s Enemies At Home and Abroad.

Guaranteed you’ll be shocked concerning the nations future. All because of Trump, and his cowardly Republican colleagues, who value power over virtue and country.

Which brings me to Judge Amy Coney Barrett, 45′ appointee to replace, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as a Supreme Court Justice. 45 has made it no secret that he appointed her to kill Obama Care, Roe v Wade and LGBTQ rights. And to be the deciding justice, to validate his appeal to the Supreme Court. 45 is such egomaniac, that he thinks that it’s impossible for him to be defeated, unless the election was rigged!

Judge Barrett, must clearly understand 45′ motivations in her appointment. She must also know that 45 has no respect for woman or anyone else. He only respects trump! As a person of faith, with faith demanding the ultimate in judicial standards. She should recuse herself, as a signal of rebuke to 45, that decency means more than prestige. And declaring that her recusal is also done out of respect for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Such a brave, and unanticipated response would shock the nation. A highly esteemed position of authority and prestige for a lifetime turned down. Because, faith demands respect and decency. Thus elevating Judge Amy Coney Barrett into history, as the person who launched America into the healing process. That’s the fame of faith!

And then after the inauguration of Joe Biden, he should renominate Judge Barrett. Because, she could be trusted to safe guard American values, by decency and not politics. No doubt the senate would unanimously confirm her appointed to the highest court of the land. And showing the world that America values decency over all other values.

It’s dream land wishing, however, dreams sometimes become reality.

Forcing Biden, and his democratic colleagues to pack the Supreme Court. Because legal fascism will dominate the court for decades. Setting the stage for a third term or more. Even allowing 45 to pardon himself, when convicted of numerous crimes.

That’s why 45 will not make his tax returns public. Hush money to buy himself cover for multiple crimes and other nefarious dealings.

America has a reincarnated crime boss to deal with. And there’s no telling what evils 45 is capable of committing, until its to late to react.

Time to preserve American democracy still exists. But for that to occur Biden/Harris must defeat 45. And, that’s up to the electorate to make it happen! A second term for 45 will make COVID-19 a secondary disease of concern.

all inclusive

“Man is nothing else but what he makes of himself,” Jean Paul Sartre.

But that experience is greatly enhanced in and through Jesus Christ. And this how it’s done, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus [That you are a sinner] and that you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” For the scriptures says, ‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.'” (cp. Romans 10:9-11).

It doesn’t matter who you are by race, creed, nationality, gender or what one has done, or failed to do. In other words His saving grace is all inconclusive.

Supported with these scriptures. For there is no distinction between people. For the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord  shall be saved. (cp. Romans 10:12-13).

There are no rituals. All the above may seem to some so very complicated. Here is the simplicity of that experience. It’s discovered by taking a journey back to the two criminals on crosses with Jesus. Jesus was in the middle of them.

One of the criminals mocked Jesus saying, “If you are the Christ save Yourself and us!” But the other, answering, rebuked him saying, “Do you not fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds, but this Man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your Kingdom!” Jesus said to him, “Assuredly I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise!” (cp. Luke 23:39-43).

It was over for that criminal for he had been crucified and was dying. But for you, you have a tomorrow. It can start by applying those verses from the book of Romans. Or you simplify your life altering experience by following the example of the condemned criminal.

What happened on that cross is that he believed with his heart, Romans 10:9-11 and also experienced verses 12-13).

With the heart one believes and with the mouth confession is made. That’s when such people can really reach, Sartre’s admonition.

It’s the will of God that we all attain our personal potential. It doesn’t mean greatness, it means being faithful. It’s recorded as follows, “We are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works. Which God prepared, beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10).

memories

“The soul is healed by being with children,” Fyodor Dostoevsky.

There was a time when I taught physical education. It was the day of student physical education. A young second grade female student ran up to me, and grab by hand. I stopped and bent over, and she said, “I am repeating second grade.” I responded and said, Me too, I also repeated second grade. And now I have three college degrees. You can do the same!” I’ll never forget the bright smile that see shared with me. Indeed the soul is healed by being with children.

And most memorial is the eleven years I spent helping my grand daughter overcome her mothers desertion. She fled to England, but before leaving, she stop by to pick up a pair of shoes that she left behind. Upon entering the house my grand daughter with delight ran over to greet her mother. Bu, was pushed away! The pain on my grand daughters face is forever etched in my consciousness.

I knew instantly that I had to help her overcome her pain. Enrolled her in gymnastic, ballet classes and in a local Montessori preparatory school. And we played Barbie, and Ken, for hours at a time. And much much more. Some might say how fortunate she was, but I also was so very fortunate because there’s nothing more exhilarating than to see a child heal.

Biblical adages are in some ways magical. Because they reach and enhance our beings beyond human understanding. Consider this brief adage, “And now abide in faith, hope and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (cp. 1 Corinthians 13:13).
