anne said it

I understand more and more about Daddy’s words, when he said, “All children must look after their own upbringing. Parents can only give good advice, or put them on the right paths. But the final forming of a persons character lies in their own hands,” Anne Frank.

And children have this responsibility, “Honor your father and mother, that the days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you. (cp. Exodus 20:12).

Over the centuries such a responsibility reached the ears of Jesus. Asking, “Why do you also disobey the commandment of God because of your tradition?”

For God commanded, “Honor your Father and mother; and, they who speaks evil of father or mother, let them be put to death.”

But you say, “Whoever says to his father or mother, whatever help you might have you otherwise have gotten from me is a gift devoted to God. Then they need not honor your father or mother. Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.”

Then Jesus ratchets up His anger! “Hypocrites!” ‘Well did Isaiah prophecy about you.” Saying, ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me! And in vain do they worship Me, teaching rules made by men.'”

Then Jesus summoned the multitude, and said to them, “Hear and understand, it is not what goes into your mouth that defiles you, but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles you.” (cp. Matthew 15:3-11).

There are variables this discussion did not address. A father, who sexually assaulted his child or children. What obligation are these children under. None! Or a mother who mentally or physically abused her children. None! At best, a distant politeness.

In all such incidents don’t remain silent. Find a way to contact the police. Today it’s such behaviors are a prevailing problem. Police departments have an array of options to exercise. With the power to arrest, and referral to the proper authorities for criminal prosecution. While at the same time, contacting professional counselors to help victims deal with their hurt.

The greatest mistake is silence. Thinking that the pain will go away. It won’t!

It’s also an act against God. And it’s clear, vengeance is Mine.

From ancient times, A person who disregarded the law of Moses died without compassion on the word of two or three witnesses. (cp. Hebrews 10:28).

Today greater is the punishment for those who have trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant which He was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace.

And for, a host of abominable behaviors.

But we know Him who said,”Vengeance is mine, I will repay.” says the Lord. And again, “The Lord  will judge!” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a living God. (cp. Hebrews 10:29-31).

The ways of God vengeance can be very mysterious. but it will occur. Sometimes like this painted picture. “Sealed up in My treasures! Vengeance is Mine, as is getting even. Their foot shall slip in due time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things to come will hasten upon them!” (cp. Deuteronomy 32:35).

It’s a promise from God and it will occur. Remember patience is a virtue. Outward calm by the perpetrator of such heinous crimes, may be a shield against inward turmoil and terror. Remember God destroyed the cities of Sodom, and Gomorrah over a collection of such hideous crimes.

Discover your Bible to know your world and yourself.

Tragedy begs for strength, and its found through our resurrected Christ. But it’s not automatic it starts by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, which created the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

crazy world made sane

Ten centuries ago this was written; and had it been grafted into the hearts of more than just a few, the world would be very different.

For since the beginning of the world; people have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You. Who acts for the ones who waits for Him. You meet them, who rejoices and lives righteously, who also remembers, You, in all of your ways. (cp. Isaiah 64:4-5a).

Now lets fast forward to those who say, nonsense! They will have the opportunity to make their bold declaration. Because this is also written. For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that each may receive what is their due, for the things done in the body, whether good or bad! (2 Corinthians 5:10).

All who have lived lives in denial of a God presences. By sight,ear, and thus experience will be found guilty of insurrection.

Based upon the following, For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness by people who suppressed the truth. Because what may be known of God is manifested in them, for God has shown it to them. Through the creation of the world by His invisible attributes, which are clearly seen. Being understood by the things that where created by His eternal power. So that they are without excuse. (cp, Romans 1:20).

And eventually. this will be their sad experience. And I (John) saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and the books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead where judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. (cp. Revelation 20:12;15).

Well into the first century; this was written for all of humanity, irregardless of race, color or creed. “Let not your hearts be troubled. In My Father’s house are many mansions. I am going to prepare a place for you. I will come again; and receive you to Myself, that where I am, you may be also.” Then Jesus boldly declared, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No person come to the Father except through me.'” (cp. John 14:1-3;6).

In that we are approaching the fourth of July, when we celebrate the beauty of our democracy. It should be noted that Christ was the initiator democracy. Which can only be defined, as freedom of choice.

That’s why God made no effort Christianize the world by force. Therefore, anyone not one with Christ, here’s that free opportunity. Follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. And 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 unusual is more unusual then expected

Said Fyodor Dostoevsky, “People are a mystery! It needs to be unraveled, and if anyone spends a lifetime unraveling it, don’t let anyone say valued time has been wasted. I am studying that mystery because I want to be human.”

Wonder if Dostoevsky ever solved that mystery to his satisfaction?

This Padre suspects that at one time, or another that mystery has challenged everyone. It seems that Dostoevsky saw something in others, that provoked a mysteriousness of interests in himself that had to be unraveled.

From this writers experience its suspected that its the incarnate Godhead, that  dwells in all of us, that stirs up ones curiosity that somehow must be unraveled. It works differently for everyone.

This is how it came about for me. As an infant, I had numerous angelic experiences. All of them attempting to persuade me to become something, I could not understand at that age. For some reason those visitations didn’t scare me, I suspect, I was around 2-4 years of age.

For some reason, I became fascinated with my mothers Bible. It was huge, and its was the pictures drew my attention. Alarmed, she would take the Bible away from me and hide it. But I always found it, and the process repeated itself.

Then on a cold 03 January, morning my mother was murdered. Strange as it may be to people of the 21st century, it was a demon, that murdered my mother, so the angels of Hebrews 1:14; 13:2 and Psalms 91:11-12, schooled me.

It was a way for evil to prevent me from fulfilling my destiny, as angelically shown to me as an infant.

I often sense their presences. On one occasion, for some reason, I collapsed outdoors while on a vigorous predawn athletic workout. Semi-conscious, an angel offered me a hand, and air lifted me up to my third floor apartment. As I opened the door, I pointed to all my athletic equipment used for my conditioning. Then without a word, whiff, my guardian angel evaporated.

The whole process was enlightening, but one characteristic stands out, the angels hands were huge and very thick. In an age uncontrollable rage of shootings, I am angelically protected, because I must fulfill my God ordained destiny.

Need to back track a bit, the death of my mother threw me into a nearly two decade tailspin. God had no relevancy for me. The demonic world almost succeeded in derailing my God ordained destiny. But, what God destines can’t be permanently derailed!

The following is my, Dostoevsky, unraveling. It’s found in Romans 10-20, which reads, “I was found of them that sought Me not. I was made manifest to them that asked of Me.” Considering the circumstances, that supernatural occurrence was indeed a miracle.

For eons of time the hymn has been sung, “There’s room at the cross for you.” People from all over the world have found that to be true. Furthermore they have come to the cross from very varied circumstances. Know what I mean? If so, Blessings! If not, start your experience 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.

societal collapse the why

Secular attempts to make America what it once was has its limitations, because it’s absent the spirituality needed to succeed.

The church is so splintered by the quarreling among themselves, that they have become so heavenly minded, that they are of little earthly value.

So that leaves the task to the many of us, who make up the unseen church. Who meet in small groups in homes, libraries or parks. There are no knighted hierarchical theist to screw things up.

These unseen churches are tagged, as the believers so desire. One such assembly is known as, “The Way.” Using the scriptural citing found in John 14:6, “I (Jesus) am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through Me.”

Commission: “Now all things are of God; who has reconciled  us to Himself, and through Jesus Christ, has given to us, the ministry of reconciliation.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:18).

Identity: Christo’s are purposely inspired. Severing as lampstands, and Christ is found in the midst of His lampstands (souldiers). (cp. Revelation 2:16).

The leadership is a consensual grouping of equals. Who study the Bible, and pray with resolute determination. The state legislates from the perspective of Biblical ignorance. Often doing so in opposition to scriptural declarations.

Christo’s don’t condemn their ignorance publicly, because it creates hostility, and worsens the matter. Christo’s overturn the legislation through prayer.

Absent through the traditional modern church. The fruit of their successes is that more people are fleeing their presences than gracing their presences.

The purpose of the unseen assembly is to reverse that trend through the growth of their numbers. In the truest sense of the concept, every single believer as a lampstand is an assembly. We come together in  numbers because in numbers their is strength.

Christo’s cling to a lesson that Job shared with the world community. “I know that You can do anything, and that no purpose of yours can be withheld from You!” (cp. Job 42:2).

The culprits who aid legislative mortals are the unseen host of demons. Tagged by Isaiah as those being lead by that fleeing serpent, Leviathan. “In that day the LORD with His severe sword, great and strong, will punish Leviathan that twisted serpent; and He shall slay the reptile that is in the sea.” (cp. Isaiah 27:1).

This writer did a detailed discussion concerning the demon like character of Leviathan. All powerful and frightening! Tagged, “Human and nonhuman entities pt 51” Published, 15 June 21.

These unseen assemblies engage themselves through very partisan politics. With no affiliation  with things called Democrats or Republicans. Also engaging themselves in helpful community endeavors like severing the hungry and homeless. Such conditions are seen as cardinal failures within a democratic republic.

However it should be noted that each unseen assembly determines their own agenda’s and priorities. Because they are absent any menacing knighted hierarchical theist. Thus allowing for complete autonomy.

Of course all the above works best by affirmation of faith in Jesus Christ. If you can nod your head in approval. Blessings! If not 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.

see it sense it do it

It has been said, “That if one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams. Then endeavors to live the life which imagined. They will meet that end with surprising success.”

Here is a simple formula that everyone can apply as an endeavor to make the world a better place. And its guaranteed to have surprising success.

Folks are hurting everywhere; thus they need Jesus, but they don’t want to hear a bunch of religious crap. So try this; live the life, and the life will walk the talk. And, whenever possible offer a helping hand.

Realization of ones imagined life is an intellectual process combined through the spiritual. It’s what made America great through our founding father’s. And it worked for its citizenry; right through to recent times, then gradually it slipped away. Today, it’s just about extinct.

Liberty, and prosperity are, so interconnected that they are just about indistinguishable. Therefore, Paul pleaded, “I urge you by the mercies of God; to present yourself as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God which is your reasonable service. Don’t be conformed to this world; but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is that good, acceptable and perfect will of God. (cp. Romans 12:1-2).

There are many ways to accomplish that imagined walk. Sometimes it works best by being silent. By letting the fragrance within you do the talking. Note: “Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among the saved, and among those who are perishing. (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15).

Paul was applying the above truth as an evangelist, but it’s just as applicable for all other morally correct endeavors.

But there is a caveat, it’s necessary to be integral member of our Christ family. If you can nod your head in agreement, Blessings! If not one of us, join us, 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.

Y the Middle East is such a hot spot

Want to understand world history from ancient times, to our times and beyond? Then know your Bible, and you will know your world.

It’s frightful because it’s filled with continuous erupting violence. For our era of time it, all started with the criminal trial of Jesus. And ends with Jesus turning the tables on them. Giving them a soaking of their own violence. Think that the future is bright, think again.

During the reign of Herod wise men came asking, “Where is He born King of the Jews?” For we, have come to worship Him. (cp. Matthew 2:2) That was His, God ordained purpose. In fulfillment of the Abrahamic promises. There was a most unusual relationship between God and Abraham. It featured three primary tenet’s land, descendants and a global blessings for everyone.

It all started as follows, “And the LORD said to Abram, get out of your country, and go to a land that I will show you. So they came to Canaan.

Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, ‘To your descendants I will give this land. (cp. Genesis 12:1-3;5;7a). However, the Palestinians are, and  will continue to resist conceding any more land to Israel.

One can only speculate that both Jews and Palestinians are fully aware of those promises. And that’s why, the Middle East is such a hot spot and will remain so.

During the criminal trial of Jesus, Jesus responded to the governors question, “Are You the King of the Jews?” Jesus replied, “It is as you say,” And while He was being  accused by the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing. Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You not know how many things they have against you? But He answered not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.” (cp, Matthew 27:11-14).

No where in scriptures is Jesus ever mentioned as, “King of the church, nor of the nations.”

There will come a time when Jesus will conclude, enuf is enuf, “Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He that sat upon was called faithful and true, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

His eyes were like flames of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called the Word of God.

And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the wine press with the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And on His robe, and on His thigh a name is written, King of kings and Lord of Lords.

Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and the angel yelled with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven. Come and gather together for the supper of the great God. That you may eat the flesh of rulers, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and all those who sat on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.

Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet, who worked signs in his presences, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast, and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

And all the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the Horse. And, all the birds were filled with their flesh. (cp. Revelation 19:11-21).

As a reader do you know how all the above might apply to you? If you are a part of our Christ family, then you, like me, will escape the vengeance of Almighty God.

Because prior to that horrific time of evil, Christ will have called out believers to meet Him in the sky above for a journey to heaven. After that earthlings will learn the true meaning of hell on earth.

And after evil has been completely destroyed Christ will return. It’s called the second coming. There will be a new earth and heaven. On this earth Christ will establish His kingdom. And declare Himself to be King of Kings and Lord of lords.

So, if need be prepare to join us. Do so by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. 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.

different worlds altered experiences

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows. (cp. Psalms 139:14).

It has been reported that every 90 days a new river of life is built in the body. And within that blood is oxygen the food of life. Which nourishes and maintains our cells.

Then very eleven months we have a new set of billions of marvelous body cells.

Every two years we have an entirely new set of bones and hard tissues.

And it’s also been reported concerning longevity, that people can expect to receive two hours of life extension for every hour spent exercising. Adding that if exercising were a medication, experts believe it would be the most heavily prescribed in the history of medicine.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen. Being understood by the things that are made. Through His eternal power by the trinity. So that at the time of judgement every one is without excuse. (cp. Romans 1:20; 2 Corinthians 5:10).

What a marvelous specimens were Adam and Eve at their creation. All those instincts that dwell within us yearning to be experienced. Where realities for them like instant time travel by thought. Adam perfect in all his ways was tasked for naming all of Gods nonhuman species. (cp. Genesis 1:24-25; 2:19-20). The earth is a big place with no means of travel. So it’s suggested Adam navigated around the earth by instant thought to accomplish his task.

Recall that Adam was created in God’s image. (cp. Genesis 1:26-28). So the process of instant time travel was developed around the disciples. Fearing for their lives, they had locked themselves behind locked doors. And suddenly Jesus, managed to appear by penetrating a solid door. (cp. John 20:19-20).

And the same, will be within our abilities during a future age. Proof: “For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall be in the likeness of His resurrection. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall live with Him.” (cp. Romans 6:5;8).

One in Christ, then that will be your future experience in a place called His kingdom on this earth. Not one of us, become one, and start your journey by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. The 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.

womanhood its glory

“Women should be respected as well! Generally speaking men are held in greater esteem in all parts of the world, so why should not women have their share? Soldiers and war heroes are honored and commemorated, explores are granted immortal fame, martyrs are revered, but how many look upon women too as soldiers. Women who struggle and suffer pain to ensure the continuation of the human race, make much tougher and courageous soldiers than all those big mouthed freedom fighting heroes put together,” Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl.

Follow the Christ example respect women! Jesus while visiting an acquaintance, a woman came carrying a very expensive substance. And she poured it upon the head of Jesus as He sat at a table

But when His disciples saw what was occurring, they became indignant, and protested saying, “What a waste! For that substance should have been sold, with the proceeds given to the poor!”

Jesus responded by asking, “Why do you trouble this woman? For, she has done a good work for Me! For you have the poor with you always, but Me, you will not always have with you! Mary by pouring this fragrant oil on My Body, she did it as tribute to My forthcoming burial.”

Therefore, “I   say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what Mary has done will also be told as a memorial to her!” (cp. Matthew 26:6-13).

Who was this Mary, none other than Mary Magdalene, and perhaps His wife, as suggested by the Gnostic Bible. Peter said to Mary, “Sister, we know that the Savior loved you more than any other woman.”

Mary had given His disciples a sense of purpose after they felt defeated, and where about to abandon their Christ directed mission. (cp. Gnostic Bible, The Gospel of Mary, Mary Consoles The Students, But Peter Challenges Her).

Not one us? Now is the time to become one of 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.

Living the long life

According to scientist, who study the effects of physical exertion on longevity. You can expect to receive two hours of life extension from every hour spent exercising. If exercise were a medication, experts believe that it would be the most heavily prescribed in the history of medicine. (source: Competitor Magazine, Page 20, September issue, 2009).

All the more reason to keep our bodies fit. More important it has a Biblical foundation. “What know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own. For you were bought with a price; therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit which are God’s,” 1 Corinthians 6:19.

Rooted in Romans 12:1-2, “I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Note the four aspects of our bodies. The physical: bodies living sacrifice. The Spiritual: Holy acceptable to God which is our reasonable service. The mental: Accomplished by the renewing of our minds. The Social: Through our deeds doing the perfect will of God.

So this day, and every day everyone should show our respect to our Christ, by honoring our bodies, His temple. That we might have life, and have it in more abundance.

It’s a good time to cut our calories, for a more Christ honoring body. Helped along with a meaningful exercise program. From which, “Everyone can expect to gain two hours of of live extension for every hour spent exercising.”

Christendom encourages a balanced life. So no doubt, a Christ focused life might well add extended longevity to His adherence’s. And our glorious Father, of our Lord Jesus Christ. Knows that we need healthy and wise Souldier’s for the preserving of American styled democracy. Meaning God first in everything because it’s in accordance with the above cited scriptures.

Not one of us? Join our Christ family by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek.

the art of winning

“Although I’m only fourteen, I know quite well what I want, I know who is right and who is wrong. I have my opinion, my own ideas and principles, and though it may sound pretty mad coming from an adolescent, I feel more like an adult than a child, and I feel very independent from everyone!” Anne Frank, “The Diary of Anne Frank”

What a dynamic persuasive personality, only imagination can perceive what Anne could have accomplished, had she been aloud to mature into adulthood and live a full life. Anne Frank, was executed by the Nazis at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.

The Apostle Paul, a Jew, knew a lot about persecution and suffering. But it was not about antisemitism, rather it was because of his allegiance to Jesus Christ, as he traveled to establish Christian assembly’s through out the region.

One can only hope that somehow, Anne, absorbed Paul’s council, “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all you do, be done with love.” (cp. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14).

If Anne was one who stood anchored in the faith, then she knew spiritual truths just aren’t humanly of human origin, but are of God! Therefore, Anne, and other’s like, you, and me, we should always eventually prevail. Even prevalence must be seen from the spiritual perspective.

In that it is was written eons ago. Lets travel there and discover what that eon was all about. “For since the beginning of the world, the people have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any of God besides You. Who acts for the one, who waits for Him. You meet them, who rejoice, and act through righteousness, who remember You through Your ways.” (cp. Isaiah 64:4-5a).

Causing Paul to write eight centuries later, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of any person, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.

But God has revealed them to everyone through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes the deep things of God.

For who among men knows the things of man, except the spirit of man, which is within him. Even so, no one knows the things of God, except through God’s Spirit!

Then Arina came to his side and pressing her gray hair head to his, said, “It can’t be helped, Vasya. A son is liked a lopped off branch. As a falcon, he comes, when he wills and goes when he lists, but you, and I are like mushrooms growing in a hollow tree. Here we sit side by side without budging. But I shall stay with you for ever, and unalterably, just as you will stay with me.”

Vassily Ivanich removed his hands from his face and embraced his wife, his constant companion, with a warmth greater than he had ever shown her in his youth; she had consoled him in his grief.

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the LORD.” See Proverbs 18:22.

“Honor your father and mother which is the first commandment with promise. That it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth. And fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training of the Lord.” See Ephesians 6:2-4.

What’s most desirable is to have a relationship with our heavenly Father. Have it? Blessings! If not, there will not be a better time to create that Father son relationship. 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.

Juneteeth Day

“If we are to better the future, we must disturb the present,” Catherine Booth.”

Those outside of Christ think and act that the best way to make a better future is to disturb the present. And they do so, by employing violence. Unfortunately Christendom has a history of employing the same tactics for the same reasons.

As recognized by President Biden, when he signed into law federalizing June 19, as Juneteeth day. It’s the celebration of African Americans emancipation, as being the personal property of another. It been reported that  it originated in Galveston, Texas, 1886.

The tragedy of this legislation is that it took 135 years to be recognized by the federal government. And that the first eight United States Presidents claimed African Americans as their personal property. Shocking!

This Padre had observed a time in northern states; when African Americas, were not allowed to sit at the same counter with white people. For those, and other reasons, African Americans deserve financial reparations. Because it, represents compensation for injuries and insults.

A lot of such evils where perpetuated by people, who called themselves Christians. No doubt at the judgement seat of Christ, they are going to have to account for such attitudes and behaviors. (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:10).

Nevertheless, many African Americans today proudly confess that they are Christ followers. Which should cause everyone to wonder, how could a people enslaved then and now? The now in more shrewd ways. Rise up and confess Jesus, as their redeemer?

Answer the power of Christ Himself. Paul testified to His power as thus. “I was found by them; who sought Me not, and I was made manifest to them that asked not of me.” (cp, Romans 10:20).

Here is the eternal mystery, as to how it works. “So shall My word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish whatever I please, and it shall prosper in the thing which I sent it.” (cp. Isaiah 55:11).

Most minimize the absolute power cited in those two verses. Here’s an example, and it comes from Dietrich Bonhoeffer the great Nazi hater.

He was confined in a prison cell waiting execution for crimes committed against Nazi Germany. His guards were overwhelmed by his self assured demeanor. That they smuggled his manuscripts out of prison. And made sure that they were placed in the right hands, which resulted in his book, “Letters from Prison.”

The power of the gospel is a phenomenon that knows no boundaries. Just the presence of you or me, is enough to bring anyone to redemption. It’s done as follow, “Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are the fragrance of Christ among the saved, and among those who are perishing. (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14:15).

A fragrance can not be seen, it can only be sensed. And that’s all it takes. It’s Divinely recorder. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is not willing that any should perish, but all should come to repentance.” (cp. 2 Peter 3:9).

His ways are sometimes very mysterious to we mortals. This writer will not be surprised to discover that Nazis found redemption through Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Or that white hood devils, found redemption through an African American, secure in the redemptive power of Christ.

And, the saints determined in unison, “Let it be more so today. And may I be such a vehicle to bring redemption to some scoundrel. “The world needs to have its today disturbed so we can have a better tomorrow,” counseled Catherine Booth.

Of course all of the aforementioned works best by affirmation of faith in Jesus Christ. If you can nod your head in approval, blessings! If not, make your affirmation of faith by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then 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.

old rubbish made new -v- godliness

Job chapter 25 is all about Bildad  rehearsing old attacks through the rearranging of his verbiage.

Job makes the following inquiries. Bildad, when have you helped anyone who is in need of help? Or rescued those over burdened with need? What is the depth of your council for people trapped in burdensome circumstances? cp. Job 26:2-3).

Oh! Bildad what departed spirit speaks through you? The departed spirits of the dead tremble, as do all other spirits that exist beneath those waters. Sheol is naked before God and Destruction = Abaddon (cp. Revelation 9:11), has no covering, verses 4-6.

Bildad here is the majesty of the Almighty. He hung the earth on nothing. He binds up the water in His thick clouds. Yet the clouds are not broken. He encloses the face of His throne with His clouds. He has established the surface boundaries of the waters, and the confines of light and darkness, verses 7-10.

The pillars of heaven tremble, and are astonished at His rebuke. He stirs up the sea with His power, and by His understanding He stirs up the storm. By His Spirit He dressed the heavens; and by His hand, He pierced the fleeing serpent, verses 11-13.

Behold Bildad, these are but the outskirts of His ways. How small of a whisper we hear of Him! But the thunder of His power, who can understand?

This discussion was developed from Job 26:2-14. Through critical analytical interpretation.

it is all about money pt 53

This discussing will end with a total of 53 scriptural examinations from within the book of Job. Which included lots of surprising information concerning the human experience. And it will continue, with this discussion.

Those who should know better often know less, when it comes to being a shepherd of the flock. In modern day Christendom its often more about keeping the pews full so their bank accounts keep swelling.

During the pandemic some governmental authorities ordered churches to close. Which created a national ruckus, with the hierarchical’s of religionist to scream, foul!

We are essential entities! They used that excuse because many governmental jurisdictions granted waivers for essential entities.

And to support their argument they blabbed, “Don’t forsake the assembling of yourselves together.” (cp Hebrews 10:25). It worked! But the truth, is that the assembling together is mostly about collecting money.

Then to sweeten the pot, they dangle ample entertainment through choirs, bands, soloists and story teller’s. And to complete the finale, congrats get to absorb the edicts of the knighted hierarchical theist.

In that modern day churches represent mostly entrepreneurs, who also thrive on empire building. And to further their businesses, they sell many products. All of which should be taxed, including their properties.

Governments could designate the money to help the poor and homeless. It’s a disgrace that  people go hungry in America, and in America there should be no such experience as being homeless!

Here is another way to spot phony knighted hierarchical theist. In order to snatch the hard to convince, they got to set themselves apart form not being ordinary people. They do his by saying, “God verbally spoke to me, and said,” the tales of deceit vary.

Thinking about that, and many are impressed, concluding that that theist talks to God, and God engages him in conversations.

Reeled in, and good bye to ones hard earned money. It’s a crime because many surrender their money beyond their capability to give.

Today, God speaks to all of us through our Bible. Those theist aren’t anymore gifted in hearing Gods voice than any other sincere Christ devotee, who reads, and studies their Bible.

And here is the proof, “All scripture is given by inspiration from God, (meaning God breathed, and directed by His breath in and through those, who penned the scriptures) and is profitable for learning, scolding, correction, and for instruction in righteousness. So that everyone may be able to cope with what life offers in ways of overwhelming challenges. Including those daily annoying occurrences. (cp 2 Timothy 3:16-17). Blessings!

Readers might be under the impression that this writer is at best antagonistic towards Christendom. Nothing could be further from the truth. Antagonistic yes, towards those distorter’s, who are chasing the public away from our Christ.

This writer worships God, and often prays scriptures like, Psalms 103:1-5, and is ever so grateful for Hebrews 2:14.

This writer had been influenced by the great church reformer, Martin Luther. And gained great spiritual insights, from the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer the great German theologian. Especially his book, “Letters from Prison.” It’s a most worthy read.

It’ll take the reader on a journey what it means to be associated with Jesus. He wrote his book while waiting to be executed by the Nazis. His prison guards were so impressed with his calm while waiting sure execution. That they smuggled his manuscripts out of prison. And made sure they fell into the right hands. The mysterious of God at work. Thus the tittle, Letters from Prison.

Hopefully the reader is one of us. If so, Blessings! If not 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.

Readers who have read the 52 previous discussions know that those knighted hierarchical theist have been around for centuries. They made Job’s life miserable accusing him of living a life style, whereby, he though of himself as being more righteous than God. And that was the reason God tumbled him riches to rags.

And in the process, whipped up a horrendous storm that caused the house where his ten children had gathered for dinner to collapse. Claiming the lives of his ten children.

They even managed to convince the public the he, was pure and simple, an unacceptable contemptible person.

And with each attack, Job vigorously defended himself. Arguing that lack of spirituality had nothing to do with it. Asserting he was a victimized by circumstances.

What Job didn’t know was that God, and Satan entered into a compact. With Satan arguing remove Your protective barrier, and Job will end up denying and cursing you.

Now that should give everyone pause to wonder, have such scenario’s from the distant past, before Job’s time, and then after Job’s time, reaching us today, did they occur, and do they occur today?

The good news is that Job proved Satan wrong. But he sure paid, a heavy price. Another unanswerable puzzle, is that how it always plays out?

From this writer’s perspective it’s doubtful. Because, God is all about free choice. It’s more likely, than not, that most people would end up wanting nothing to with God. And most likely, at least silently they would end up cursing God. The only time; the converse would occur, it would have to be seen from God’s perspective like another Job.

Remember God told Satan that there was no one like Job on the face of the earth. A man who loved God, avoided evil, and lived righteously. That’s a super high standard, but a standard all of Christ devotees should strive to attain.

For closure, God chastised those knighted hierarchical theist of Job’s time, as did Jesus during his time. He entered Jerusalem, and found knighted hierarchical theist in a house of worship conducting business as usual.

Jesus drove them out, and said, “My Father’s house is not a house of merchandise!” (cp. John 2:13-16). And His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for Your house has eaten, Me up.” (cp. John 2:17). And may we Christ devotees behave in like manner. Because that’s what all of these discussion have been all about. Blessings!

In closure, God reprimanded those knighted hierarchical theist of Job’s time. Saying, “My wrath is kindled against you; for you have not spoken correctly to Me, concerning My servant Job. Job has addressed Me correctly. Repent, and my servant Job will pray for you. And I will not deal with you concerning your folly. (cp. Job 42:7-8).

And because they did what the LORD commanded them. And, Job prayed for them. So the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. And Job was joined by all of his sisters and brothers. And all of his old acquaintances. They dinned together in Job’s house. They comforted and consoled him concerning all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him. They gave Job money and a ring of gold. Verses 9-11).

So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job’s life more than at the beginning. His prosperity was greatly increased. And Job was able to provided a handsome inheritance for his family. Verses 12-15.

And Job lived one hundred and forty years, and lived to enjoy four generations of his family. And Job died, being old and full of days. Verses 16-17.

This discussion was developed from an assortment of scriptures. Purposefully designed set the stage for Job 42:7-17. All tied together through critical analytical interpretations.

wrong made right pt 52

Gear up, and get ready for some insights, as to what it means to be human. And, can a persons humanism escape God’s retribution? That’s for readers to determine for themselves?

Job is picturesque of all of us. Having had more than his share of difficulties, coming from the hierarchy of the religious community and society at large. All carefully enumerated in previous discussions.

But Job comes to his senses and comes to the following realizations. “I know that You can do all things, and that no purpose of Yours can be restrained. (cp. Job 42:1-2).

Then Job asks and admits, You asked, “Who is this who issues counsel without knowledge? Therefore, I have uttered that which I didn’t understand, things too wonderful for me too understand, or know. Verses 3-4.

You said, “Listen, now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you will answer me! I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eyes sees you. Therefore, I abhor myself; and I regret my ignorance, and repent.” Verses 5-6.

If modern society had just a fraction of Job’s humility the global community would be in much better shape. The world community suffers because of its continual disregard for His edicts. If such abstinence characterize the modern day Christendom, a better world would emerge from our example.

Because it is written, “Now thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are saved, and among those who are perishing. (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15).

But it all starts 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.

This discussion was developed from Job 42:1-6, along with other supporting scriptures. Brought together through critical analytical interpretation.

For tomorrow, a major problem, modern day Christendom.

human and nonhuman entities pt 51

Rocketing onto the world scene is a creature introduced to us as Leviathan. Frankly, this writer suspects that Leviathan is a fictitious creature. Picturesquely designed by Divine Providence to demonstrate, and convince global inhabitants, that unknown destructive forces lurk everywhere. Some human, and others very nonhuman. Whose sole purpose is to snatch lives for permanent residency in hell. The very opposite to what was discussed yesterday, “Supremacy of the Almighty.”

The following account is the most detailed divinely inspired declaration concerning the power of evil. If readers can separate, all prejudices, that dark supernatural phenomenon’s exist to dramatize humanity. Readers will come to understand the craziness circling the globe. The sad aspect of all this, is that’t it’s going to get worse. Some of it will be exacerbated through the various aspects of nature.

This Padre has experienced both the dark side, as well as helpful hands of the super natural.

I’ve been around along time. My time goes back to the days of a hitching post for horses in front of grocery stores. There were no giant superstores within things called plaza’s.

The automobile was just emerging as a mode of transportation. They were black, no such multiple color schemes like today.

And finally, I was able to do certain things, and go to certain places unchaperoned and in complete safety. Today parents, can’t leave their children out of their sight.

Oh! by the way, when I got my first black car, gas was $.15 cents a gallon!

What is to follow will be better understood, when looked through the lens of 2 Timothy 3:16-17, which says scriptures have multiple purposes. Like being divinely inspired, and for our learning. So that we can effectively cope with life’s drama’s. Know your Bible, know yourself and your world.

However, it only works for those who are one with Christ. One with Christ? Blessings! If not begin your journey by following the prompts in Romans 10:9-10. The notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality that so many seek. If our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next

So lets get started with a scriptural analysis of this dreadful creature. “O God, how long will it be before you criticize our adversary? Will you allow the enemy to blaspheme your name forever? ….? …. and destroy them…. You divided the sea by your strength, You broke the heads of the sea serpents in the water. You broke the heads (plural) of Leviathan in pieces, and gave them, as food to the people inhabiting the wilderness.” ( cp. Psalms 74:10-14).

“O LORD how impressive are your works! In wisdom You made them all. The earth is the fruit of your possessions. This great, and wide sea in which are innumerable teeming things, living things both small and great. The ships sail about; and there is Leviathan! Which you have made to play there.” (cp. Psalms 104:24-26.

The finale, “In that day the LORD with His severe sword great and strong, will punish Leviathan that fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent. And, He will slay the reptile that is in the sea.” (cp. Isaiah 27:1-2).

Moving to Job, we are blasted with this introduction. Can you draw out Leviathan with a fish hook, or pierce its jaw with a hook? Will Leviathan address you, or speak soft words to you? Can Leviathan enter into a contract with you for services to be rendered? Would you invite Leviathan to your home as a guest, or suggest that Leviathan would be handsome suitor for one your children? Will the business community recognize Leviathan as a reputable competitor? (cp. Job 41:1-6).

What weaponry would be sufficient in aggressive domestic or global warfare? There is no way anyone could prevail, so don’t engage Leviathan in any conflicts! All hope of winning is in vain. The very sight of Leviathan will overwhelm everyone. No one is so fierce that they would dare to even anger Leviathan. Verses 7-9.

Who then, you ask, would be able to confront Leviathan? Only Me, because no one has preceded Me! I alone can repay Leviathan! Because, every thing under heaven is Mine! Verses 7-11.

The Almighty declares, “Leviathan is mighty in strength with an impressive frame. Forewarned is to be forearmed. Stay your distance. Deceptive strength is the pride of all Leviathan’s! They are so very numerous and stay close together. So close that no air can come between them. It’s impossible to separate them. verses 12-17.

When a Leviathan sneezes you’ll see flashes of light. Their mouth’s when they speak launch sparks of fire. And from their nostrils, smoke goes out like a boiling pot over a fire of reeds. Their breath kindles coals of flames that flash out of their mouths. verses 18-21.

Leviathan’s strength is in their upper bodies. Their very appearance is terrorizing. They are cold heartened resembling solid stones. verses 22-24.

When a Leviathan raises it self up, even the mighty become afraid. They retreat rather than to endure their thrashing. Because no weapon is capable, that could cause anyone to prevail. Leviathan’s look at iron as straw, and bronze as rotten wood. Arrows, and sling stones are like chaff to Leviathan’s. As are clubs which are looked upon as stubble. They laugh at rushing of a javelin. Their whole bodies are like hard stones, leaving a trail in the mud like threshing machine. verses 25-30.

Leviathan’s can make the deep waters boil, or like a pot of ointment. On earth there is no equal. Leviathan’s see everything. They are kings over all peoples of pride.” verses 31-34.

This discussion was developed from Job 41:1-34. The declarations by themselves offer ample critical analytical interpretation.

Supremacy of the Almighty pt 50

Now the Almighty confronts the naysayers, asking can any of those who argue contrarily with me bring about change? They will have to answer for their obstinacies. Because, it’s a matter of rebuke to the Almighty. (cp. Job 40:1-2).

The savvy will soon come to their senses, and admit to their Creator that they are morally vile creatures. Thinking that the matter will end there. No such good fortune, because the Almighty responds, prepare yourself as a man. I will question you, and you will answer Me! verses 3-7.

Do you think that you can annul my judgments? And forthwith condemn me, by being able to replace me, as the only one, who can declare you have been justified? Do you have the wherewithal  that by your voice thunder is created? If so deck yourself with excellency. Array yourself with honor and majesty, verses 8-10.

Can you pour out the fury of your anger without consequences? If so, crush the wicked where they are. Reduce them to become as forgotten memories. Reduced them to specs dust throughout the landscape. If you can do any of the aforementioned, then, indeed you are God! verses 11-14.

But, first observe the behemoth (speculated as reference to elephants) that I created, as well as you. Their menu consists of grass, as does the ox. Look at their strength shown through their thighs. His power is in his stomach muscles. He moves his tail like a cedar. The tendons of his thighs are knit together. His bones are like beams of bronze, his ribs like bars of iron, verses 15-18.

Verse nineteen is a interesting verse because it reads, “He (Behemoth) is the chief of the ways of God. He who made him gives him his sword.” We refer to Behemoth as being an Elephant because of the aforementioned characteristics. With Behemoth’s trunk because of its size and utility of use being his sword. And perhaps the first beast God created, because of the reference, “The chief of the ways of God.”

Looking at what Moses wrote in the biblical book of Genesis we discover two interesting recordings. On the fifth day of creation, Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let the birds fly above the earth, and across the firmament of the heavens. So God created the great sea creatures, and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abound, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.” And God blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the sea, and let the birds multiply on the earth.'” (cp. Genesis 1:20-22).

Then we discover this recording, “Out of the ground God formed every beast of the field, and every bird in the air. And God bought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature that was its name. So Adam gave names to all the cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field.” (cp. Genesis 2:19-20a).

And, perhaps one particular beast Adam named Behemoth. What we refer to day as being an elephant.

With Behemoth being the chief of the ways of God. Enjoyed all the foods the mountains produced for him. And where all the God’s beastly creatures played. Where there was nothing but peace and tranquility. (cp. Job 40:20-22).

There was no such occurrence such as death or violence during those days. (cp. Job 40:23-24).

Today we know all about death and violence. But that era will also pass, with peace and tranquility, once again being the experience of all of His creation.  “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,…,and a little child shall play with them,…, there shall be no more hurt or destruction in all of My holy mountain. Because all of the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. (cp. Isaiah 11:6-9).

Here are some characteristic of life in that kingdom. And I (John) heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold the tabernacle of God is with all people, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall all be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; their shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for all the former things have passed away.” (cp. Revelation 21:3-4).

That’s for the few fortunate ones made secure, through His brutal murderous death and magnificent resurrection. All naysayer’s and Christ denier’s will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (cp. Revelation 21:8).

As has been said, “There’s a hell to avoid and a heaven to inherit.” It’s all about the free will of choice. To avoid the hell and inherit heaven 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.

truth is found through nature pt 49

Infinite wisdom demonstrates to we humans, how inadequate we are, when it comes to elementary knowledge. To accomplish this, Divine Providence, uses various creatures for His instructive teachings.

He does this by asking a series of questions along with making piercing statements. “Do you have any control over animals, as to when they’ll give birth? The instinct of the young to go out and not return. It is so because I have made the wilderness their dwelling place. The range of the mountains is their natural pastures. They search after every green thing. (cp. Job 39:1-8).

And, why does the ox serve you? Is it because of a sense of duty, or because of the feeding trough? Do you confide in any of those creatures to work, so that you can fill your barns with seeds and grain? It all amounts to forced labor. All that occurs because God has deprived them of wisdom, neither has He imparted to them understanding. But inwardly, they scorn their masters. And that’s what makes certain creatures very dangerous, verses 9-18.

Have you given the horse might? Does he go out voluntarily to meet armed forces, No! Plain and simple, he’s an awesome creature. Designed by Infinite Wisdom to be loyal. Mortals have had no roll, other than to reap the prosperity of His provision, verses 19-25.

Or is it by your wisdom that the hawk soars and stretches her wings toward the south? Is it at our command that the eagle mounts up, and makes his nest on high?
