the vigil never ends

“People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired, but that was not true. I was not tired physically, or no more than I was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in,” Rosa Parks.

And, not only that! We take pride in our problems because we know that troubles produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope. This  hope does not put us to shame because the love of God has been poured in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. (cp. Romans 5:3-5).

It’s unfortunate that the modern day Christendom has substantially stained our reliability upon the holy scriptures, as the source to sustain us during troublesome times.

The scriptures have been source of overcoming during the long sad history of African Americans struggles for equality. And for many others, who place their confidence upon the scriptures, and not in what most modern day churches distort.

Not one us? Join the Christ family by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then note verses 11-13. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

character makes the difference

“The matter came up for judicial investigation, but as might have been expected, the white people concluded it was unnecessary to wait for the results of the investigation. That it was preferable to hang the accused first, and then try him afterward,” Ida B Wells.

This writer supports reparations for, American Americans. It’s just unconscionable for anyone ever to think that they had the right to own another human being as their personal property. But that’s the history of these United States.

So anyone, who opposes reparations knowing our history, will change their minds after studying the history of slavery in America.

Furthermore, reparations will help heal the deep wounds from slavery. Combined it’ll help erase racism that’s still very much alive in these United States of America. And for, this writer that’s also unconscionable!

Two thoughts about racism it’s origins and its end. “The heart is deceitful above all things, who can know it?” And, “Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things to come hasten upon them.” (cp, Jeremiah 17:9 with Deuteronomy 32:35).

formula 4 success

“You can pray until you faint, but unless you get up, and try, and do something, God is not going put it in your lap,” Fannie Lou Hamer.

Ms. Hamer was a tireless, and constant American voting rights and women’s rights activist. And, as such, she was a stalwart community leader in the overall civil rights movement.

She was an advocate of praying combined with action. As an admirer of such people, and one who shares the same the same spiritual and societal mechanisms for engagements.

The following was a prophetic announcement concerning the spirituality of Jesus’ societal methodologies during His earthly ministry. With such being the case for Jesus it certainly must be our way also. “There shall come forth a rod from the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out his roots. The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD.”

“His delight is in the fear of the LORD, and shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears. But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, and decide equity for the meek of the earth. He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, and faithfulness the belt of His waist.” (cp. Isaiah 11:1-5).

Later this was demonstrated by Christ Himself, as he humbled, and recruited the cruel prosecutor of Christians, Saul of Tarus. “As Saul journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying, ‘Saul, Saul,  why are you persecuting Me?” (cp. Acts 9:3-4).

Paul wrote, “But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His son in me, that I might preach Him among the gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to confer with those who were Apostles before me, but I went Arabia and returned to again to Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and remained with him for fifteen days.” (cp. Galatians 1:15-18). It is generally assumed that Saul, who assumed the name of Paul, Acts 13:9, was personally educated by Christ Himself during those three years.

Then while in prison, Paul upon reflection penned his educational experience from what Christ taught him about Himself from the prophecy written by Isaiah and aforementioned.

Over coming the human insurmountable’s can only be done through the Spirit of God Almighty. Paul penned these immortal thoughts for world changers. Pray and seek, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, may give you the spirit (human consciousness) of WISDOM and REVELATION in the KNOWLEDGE of HIM. That the EYES of your UNDERSTANDING being ENLIGHTENED that you may know WHAT IS THE HOPE OF YOUR CALLING. And what are the RICHES of HIS INHERITANCE in the saints.” (cp.Ephesians 1:17-18).

(Remember that Angels rejoice over one sinner who repents, as announced by Jesus Himself, Luke 15:10) We are His inheritance through His life, death resurrection and ascension. (cp. Hebrews 2:14).

How does Christ create a similarity between Himself and us? “Through the exceeding GREATNESS of His power in us who believe, according to the working of His MIGHTY POWER which He used to raise Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places.” (cp. Ephesians 1:19-20).

“Far above all principalities, powers, mightiness, dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come.” (cp. Ephesians 1:21).

“And He has put all things under His control, and made Him the head over all us, who call themselves Christians. Because we are of His body, who fills all in all.” (cp. Ephesians 1:22-23).

What you have read is picturesque of what Christians are capable of accomplishing with and through Him.

It has nothing to do with no notoriety, but it may. It’s most likely about the following for most of us. And it is of great significance because progress is accomplished by one step at a time. Hardly noticed until the walk is completed. Then people say, wow! How was that accomplished? “Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ and through us diffuses  the fragrance of Christ. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ everywhere, where change is needed both Christian and non-Christian.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15)

Insights Dr. Martin Luther King

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate only love can do that. I have decided to stick with love because hate is to great of a burden to bear. In the end, we will be remembered not by the words of our enemies, but by the silence of our friends,” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”

Euphemisms, the standard bearer of politicians who are going nowhere. And because of them, who make euphemistic declarations that sound good but bring about no results. Most politicians are the problem especially Republicans.

The comes along greatness in personage of, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Perhaps deep in bosom of such a great man was this awareness from the mouth of Jesus, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (cp. John 8:12).

It all translate into the following because people like, Dr. King have an awareness within themselves that escapes most. It’s a bathed in mysticism that allows them to draw upon  unusual wisdom, strength and forbearance.

Some of it is as follows. “To You O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust you; let me not be ashamed ; let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, let no one who waits upon You be ashamed; let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. Show me your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truths and teach me, for You are my salvation, and on you, I wait all day.” (Psalms 25:1-5).

This writer will not be surprised, that when he has the opportunity to converse with, Dr. King, in heaven to learn that he was aware of that fatal day. Like his Savior, who is gone, their causes live on.

a day gone by

Few knew, and more could care less that Ash Wednesday occurred a few days ago. Annually, Ash Wednesday, serves as a memorial, for a day of reckoning of ones mortality. That death would sooner or later claim us as its prey but with a remedy, For it’s recorded, “Inasmuch as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil.” (cp. Hebrews 2:14).

Because, it’s scripted, as self evident, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground. For out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and dust you shall return.” (cp. Genesis 3:19).

With such a remembrance ashes are smeared upon the forehead of the repentant, and told to go and sin no more because the journey to resurrection Sunday meant that the repentant is seen as being righteous in God’s sight. (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:21).

During the weeks between Ash Wednesday and Resurrection Sunday. People are encouraged to give up something through fasting. And other choice enjoyments, in remembrance of Jesus’ 40 day fast prior to launching His ministry. It’s a practice worth considering but its not mandated from the scriptures.

However, if this Padre were to be asked, I’d suggest, instead of giving up food or any other enjoyment. Do something helpful for other people, as frequently, as possible. Create a behavior that will become permanent. Like what Jesus encouraged, when He said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.” (cp. Matthew 5:9). In other words be nice and do nice things for others. Our world needs a good dose of such behaviors.

Jesus socialism His war of the ages

Friedrich Hegel, “Nothing great is accomplished without passion.” Hegel’s passion gave the world community the necessary apparatus for a society that saw beyond wealth for the few and poverty for the many.

Hegel’s passions are very much alive today in the United States. Through the American congress made up of Republicans, who are mostly a group of fascist, who see wealth for the few resulting in poverty for the many. Because for them, that’s the way it should.

And Democrats, who want a more equal distribution of wealth. Governed by a passion to eliminate poverty. Thank You! V.P. Kamala Harris, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and of course, Rep. AOC.

Most likely Hegel wasn’t aware that he had forerunner centuries before his lifetime, and it was Jesus the Christ.

Jesus was having a conversation with a young man, and said to him, “If you want to exceed beyond being good, go, sell what you have, and give it to the poor. And you will have treasures in heaven, and come, follow me!” (cp. Matthew 19:21).

That was asking to much for our young Christ enthusiast. Who replied, “I can’t because I am a person of great wealth.” (cp. Matthew 19:22 with exegesis).

Jesus decided to share His deepest feelings about poverty verses wealth. So He shared this with His closest revolutionaries. “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven. For emphasis Jesus added this comment, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for the wealthy to enter the kingdom of God. (cp. Matthew 19:23-24 with exegesis).

So the controversy rages on through the centuries with little chance of it ever being resolved. And that is one reason of many, as to why Christendom has so little lasting appeal. They come to Christendom by the hundreds and leave by the thousands.

art of causing good trouble

You are a Light! You are the Light! Never let anyone say, be it a person, a force intended to dampen or diminish your light.

Study the path of others in order to make your path easier and more abundant. Lean toward the whispers of your own heart, and discover the universal truth then follow its dictates.

Release the need to hate, to harbor division, the enticement of revenge and release all bitterness.

Hold only love and peace in your heart, knowing that the battle of good to over come evil is already won. Choose confrontation wisely, but when it comes it is your time not to be afraid. It’s time to stand up, and speak up against all injustices.

And if you follow your truth down the road to peace with the affirmation of love, if you shine like a beacon, for all to see, then the poetry of all great dreamers and philosophers is yours to manifest in a nation, and to a world community, and then, our Beloved Community, America will finally be at peace with itself.

Perhaps this was the late, Rep. John Lewis’ quilt of strength. And if it was good enough for Rep. John Lewis, it’s for everyone rock solid in Jesus. The true anchor for everyone’s endeavors.

I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread. He is ever merciful, and his descendants are blessed.

Depart form evil, and do good; and dwell forevermore. For the LORD loves justice, and does not forsake His saints. For they are preserved forever, but the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.

The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell in it forever. The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks justice. The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

The wicked watches the righteous, and seeks to slay him. The LORD will not leave him in their hand, nor condemn him, when he is judged.

Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and He shall exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off, you shall see it!

I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a native green tree. Yet he passed away, and behold he was no more; indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; for the future of that man is peace.

But the transgressors shall be destroyed together; the future of the wicked shall be cut off.

But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked. And save them, because they trust in Him. (cp. Psalms 37:25-40).

love a 2 way street

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, patience and passion to reach the stars to change the world,” Harriet Tubman.

Because, “The eyes of the LORD run to and fro through out the whole world to show Himself on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:9).

“The steps of good people are directed by the LORD, and He delights in their way. Though they should fall, they shall not be utterly cast down, for the LORD upholds them with His hand.” (cp. Psalms 37:23-24).

Then, “Trust in the LORD and do good. Dwell in the land, and know his faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteous as the light, and your justice as the noonday.” (cp. Psalms 37:3-6).

Harriet was born into slavery, but she escaped, and subsequently made some thirteen dangerous missions to rescue seventy enslaved people. Using the underground of antislavery activists, and safe houses known as the underground railroad.

being more than u thought u could b

“I beseech Christ for this thing only, that He will enable me to endure all things courageously, and that He shape me as a potter’s vessel or make me strong,” Huldrych Zwingli.

Some might ask, what is Zwingli talking about? And what about being more than u thought u could b, mean?

It almost sounds like a coded language and for most it is. But not for us, who have experienced the newness of life that only Christ can provide.

Think in these terms, for instance, suppose someone decides to open up a practice of some sort. And, goes through all the expense necessary to operate such an establishment. And then announces, I’m ready, to provide whatever the enterprise might be. Suddenly realizing, I don’t have the slightest clue as to how to do in reality what was imagined.

One does not travel the Christ way, as expressed by Zwingli all of a sudden. It’s a slow spiritual growth, whereby, ones soul and spirit are brought to life by the inner workings of the God’s Spirit.

Consider the following, “Likewise the Spirit helps with our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for, as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with expressions that cannot be understood. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” (cp. Romans 8:26-27).

Few are aware that all that is going on within us in one form or another. Call to repentance through Romans 10:9-10. Or the call to service as expressed by Zwingli.

Maturity in Christ brings about this reality. “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of glory may give you the Spirit of WISDOM and REVELATION in the knowledge of Him. That the eyes of your understanding being ENLIGHTENED; that you might know what is the HOPE of your calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. (The God plan has a predetermined agenda). (With this purpose for us). Discovering, what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.” (cp. Ephesians 1:17-18).

For us it’s a tutorial, as declared, “Which He worked in Christ, when He raised Him form the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places.” (cp. Ephesians 1:19-20).

Far above all principality, and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which to come. (cp. Ephesians 1:21). Meaning the age after the church age ends and often referred to as the age of grace. And that same power resides in us, as we mature in His calling. Have a problem or issue? In simple slang, bush wack it spiritually, and always non-violently, no matter who or what it is.

Because “He has put all endeavors under His control, and made Him the head of the church. And we are His body, the very fullness of Him, who fills all in all.” (cp. Ephesians 1:22-23, with exegesis through out).

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in the world are people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, they make them,” George Bernard Shaw.

And if you need some help there’s someone occupying the cosmic spaces anxious to help. For it’s recorded, “The eyes of the LORD run to and fro thorough out the whole world to show himself strong in behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9)

Remaking of America

If America is to overcome its certain demise, as declared through the discussion posted, 14 February 2021, “acquittal what it means.”

Spirituality through prayer, and action, from its citizens is an absolute. Absent any semblance of modern day Christendom.

With a strict adherence as advocated from within our Holy Writ. Indeed, as issued by Divine Providence, and as mysterious to human intelligence, as was His creation of all that is, as well, as all that is to come.

It’s a prayer offered by the Apostle Paul, God’s ordained orator for this particular age, the age of grace. Commenced by Jesus Christ, for an unknown duration, but clearly announced another age will follow. All of which, if known by modern society is ridiculed. So those few of us who know better, for the sake of America, we had better apply the following skillfully. Because prayer is a divine art. And it should be prayed in the first person, you.

Which is as follows, and developed from, Ephesians 1:17-23, as the primary scriptures and with some exegesis. Other scriptures will be cited, but should be considered to be secondary to the primary scriptures. Severing as supporting sources for clarity and applicability. Combined hopefully, they will be applied to the Believers Spirit, our Soul consciousness. Because that’s the only way such praying will manifest itself, artfully, and thus successfully.

“That Father of Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give to me the spirituality of WISDOM and REVELATION in the KNOWLEDGE of Him,” vs. 17. Three indispensable necessities for successful praying.

“That the eyes of my understanding may be enlightened. So that I might know what is my life’s purpose.” Results, more of an awareness of the unfolding of ones purpose. So than, “what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance through the saints?” vs.18. Results of a life well lived through prayer, cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15.

Here’s how praying the scriptures work. “And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe?” vs.19. Answer which in itself is mysterious: “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” (cp. Ephesians 3:20). None of this can be intellectually learned. It must be spiritually experienced, then that’s how it is learned.

It’s unexplainable but it’s compared to the following which is also unexplainable. “It is according to the working of His mighty power, which He worked in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,” vs.20a.

“Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion and every name that is named. Not only in this age, but also in the age to come,” vs. 20b-c.

Think in terms of the United States, as a country, PRINCIPALITY, POWERFUL and MIGHTY, as a united Dominion with many famous people of renowned accomplishments. Who can never be matched now or later.

All that is set aside, and made of no significance, When the God, who raised Christ from the dead, calls, empowers a praying saint. And is connected through all of the aforementioned.

It’s the will of, the Glorious Father, who has made Christ, His stalwart authority, and being secondary no one visible or invisible.

Christ is the church, and we are His body. The very fullness of the Glorious Father, who is the fullness of Him, and thus us, who is all and in all! vs’ 21-23).

What happens, when one prays according to the above teachings, and God appears to be silent. When that happens, and it will, not only concerning global matters, but also our mundane issues. Introspection is necessary because the causes of God are supreme.

Meditate, and pray for enlightenment based upon the following. Guidance and understanding of His council and purposes. “Remember the former things of old. For I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is none like Me. Declaring the end from the beginning. And from ancient times things not yet come.” Saying, “My council shall stand, and I will do all My pleasures.” (cp. Isaiah 46:9-10).

acquittal what it means

Jesus was walking on the seashore of Galilee, and He saw  Peter and Andrew fishing. So Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I’ll make you fishers of men!” And immediately, they left the boat and followed Jesus.

Continuing His walk He saw James and John mending their fishing nets. So He also recruited them. And they stopped mending their fishing nets and followed Jesus. (cp. Matthew 4:18-22).

Becoming fishers of men was more than hey fellows follow Me! Without explanation their lives were transformed. Those men, most likely would not have given up lucrative careers for a stranger, who yelled at them follow Me. It likely occurred this way, “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it came from, or where it will go. So is everyone born of the Spirit.” (cp. John 3:8).

So when James wrote the following, it was not a series of flippant expressions of a man acting in a disrespectful and rude manner. It was the embodied expression of the Spirit itself just like the force cited in John 3:8.

So take the following words from James and apply them to your life. Because the survival of America depends upon it.

“Adulterers and Adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with this world represents deep seated ill will against God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of this world makes themselves an enemy of God.” (cp. James 4:4).

Apply all this against Trumps second impeachment trial, as an observer, and not a participant loyalist of one side or the other. Based on the evidence, and not as a participant loyalist. It’s impossible not to conclude that Trump is guilty as charged, “Incitement Of Insurrection.”

Here is why America is at risk. It’s the fault of the of Protestant Evangelical Fundamental Christendom. Through their collective loyalty to Trump. Likening Trump with the same power that He had over the four, when He called, and said, “Follow Me!” To them, Trump can do no wrong!

Clearly demonstrated through many of their esteemed leaders, who told them to support Trump. Because God had told them that by so doing Trump would be a two term President. And they did, and now, they are embarrassed, and making all sort of irrational excuses, as to how they got it all, so very wrong! But their, loyalty remains with Trump! And America well pay the price for their blinded stupid etiology!

Republicans Senator’s, and pundits said, there are not in significant numbers enough Republicans, who will side with Democrats for the impeachment of Trump. And, right they were! Reasoning that after acquittal, Trump would emerge with a stronger grip on his wing within the Republican party.

Giving them a false sense of security that reelection is guaranteed. But a fed up electorate with Trump, and cronies, will rise up to defeat the likes of Senators Rubio and Scott of Florida, and other Trump Senators through out theses United States.

Existing now is a serious divide within the party, so divisive of a split, that a separate party will be born representing the conservative principals of the late, Senators, Sen. Henry Clay and Sen. John McCain, and former V.P. Dick Cheney and anchored by Rep. Liz Cheney and Nikki Halley, former governor of South Carolina, and former United States ambassador to the United States.

Leaving the Democrat’s with the opportunity to take complete control of the government. But within their party, divisiveness also reigns supreme.

Combined through totality America becomes very susceptible for collapse! As it occurs, the church will be held responsible because it walked the path opposite of being the antisepsis for Divine Providence. Creating its own divisiveness by becoming drenched in politics on the right, and on the left apostasy, representing everything except Christ established principles.

Jesus encountering His own divisiveness settled the matter then, and it’s applicability reaches all succeeding ages.

Thoreau -v- Christ way

“I have learned this, at last, by my experiment that if one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams and endeavors to live the life they imagined, they will meet with success unexpected,” Henry David Thoreau.

No doubt the aforementioned worked well for Thoreau and many others, and may it work well for everyone who chooses such a path.

However, here’s a more sure way because when God is involved by ones invocation of Him. Then many pitfalls and false avenues can be avoided.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared that we should walk in them. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (cp. Ephesians 2:10 and Ephesians 3:20).

Like the triune God our Creator, we also are a threesome, body, soul and spirit. It is through our bodies that God gives us life, our soul is our conscience, and its through our spirit that we are connected to God.

But the soul, and spirit are dormant, as are our bodies compared to what the body will be like once we receive our glorified bodies. That will occur in the hereafter. The limitations are because of the choices Eve and Adam made.

So for now, we’ll have to function on a very limited capability. It’s all tied together in those Ephesians citations. But it’s not automatic because one must function within the Christ family. Not there yet, then follow the prompts in, Romans 10:9-10. This is not about church membership. Modern day Christendom is the problem not the solution for the most part.

It’s all about activating the soul and spirit with our bodies. Accomplished when Christ makes alive our spirit, so that God may instill in us wisdom and revelation. Then our eyes are opened with enlightenment, so that we know what is the hope of our purpose. And then, discovering the hope of our calling. It’s all tied together through His inheritance in us. Henceforth, He calls us saints. (cp. Ephesians 1:17-18).

The foregoing has nothing to do with intellectualism but everything to do with spirituality. It’s a way few travel because doers do it the Thoreau way. But it has its limitations caused by human frailty. The Christ way eliminates human frailties, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It’s accomplished through the well spiritually conditioned saints.

world beyond human comprehension

“We are God’s tool. He wills to wear us out by use, not by idleness. Oh happy are the ones who He call to His work,” Ulrich Zwingli.

Every worker needs a tool box. Here are some tools from His tool box to put in yours. Those who learn how to use them will not be idle. And when it’s time to draw that last breath, it’ll be a happy one. Because it’s a lesson Jesus learned very well, and shared it with the Apostle Paul. Who didn’t have idle time, even when he was in prison.

So he wrote,”That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory. May He give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge. (cp. Ephesians 1:17). The emphasis is on wisdom, a very uncommon wisdom because its God breath into your spirit or spiritual consciousness. Bringing about a very special revelation known as ones calling into the service of Christ. And that’s the knowledge that is from Him.

For me, it happened while I was an infant less than two years old. And it was accomplished through one of His angels. And it wasn’t long after that that Satan launched a destructive attack upon me.

Contained in the following verses are the Christ escape route created for me through His angelic servants. “Are they not all ministering spirits for those who will inherit salvation.” (cp.  Hebrews 1:14).

“For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up in their hands. Lest you dash your feet against a stone.” (cp. Psalms 91: 11-12).

All that has made very sensitive to them, for it is recorded, “Don’t forget to entertain strangers. For by so doing, some have unwittingly entertained angels.” (cp. Hebrews 13:2).

Be mind full: “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” (cp. Colossians 1:16-17).

an unseen force makes the difference

Ever wonder what draws people to purposely overturn the apple cart being the status quo? When they could easily live a life of supposedly comfort, success and be admired by the combined hierarchy of their times.

One such person was, John Wycliffe, who was an English scholastic philosopher, biblical enthusiast and a seminary priest at the prestigious University of Oxford.

Instead Wycliffe became an influential dissident priest within the Roman Catholic church during the 14th century. And became an admired inspirational predecessor to many church reformers like Martin Luther, Jan Hus and scores of others reaching us today.

It’s reported that he died from a stroke, 31 December 1384. More fortunate than many of his constituents, who were burned alive tied to a metal pole. And in some instances it’s reported that the flames were controlled so as to extend the torturous death.

Why the risk? Perhaps it’s this fortuitous prayer that made the difference between themselves, and many who go the way of the status quo. Some are able to tap into a spiritual force unknown to most. Producing astounding results for the betterment of the then now and deep into the future.

Make the following your earnest Prayer: May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory give me the spirit of wisdom and revelation through the knowledge of Him. That the eyes of my understanding may be enlightened to know what is the purpose of His calling. Through the riches of His glory in His inheritance of the saints. Amen. (cp. Ephesians 1:17-18).

That’s the Christ way to make His enemies His footstool. One of the great lessons that must be learned, understood and applied. If America, is to be saved from itself! (cp. Matthew 22:41-44).

American survival will only occur, if verse 44, is forcibly applied spiritually. It has nothing to do with mundane affairs. But everything to do with Christ, making mundane affairs His footstool.

Rep. John Lewis

“Every generation leaves a legacy. What legacy will be determined by the people of that generation. What legacy do you want to leave behind?” Rep. John Lewis.

A generation is all, “the people born and living at about the same time, and regarded collectively. It can also be described as the average period, generally considered to be about 20-30 years of age, during which children are born and grow up, and become adults, and begin to have children.” Source:Google search.

It was determined by Pew Research Center to use 1996, as the last time to determine a cutoff point between Millennial’s and the next generation.

Which has been tagged as, “Generation Z.” In the researchers minds, did they determine knowingly, or unknowingly, that humanity without substantially change, that the world would not have a next generation?

Returning to Rep.Lewis’s question, what kind of a legacy do you what to leave behind? There are a lot of ramifications in answering such a question from all of the aforementioned.

This writer is profoundly intrigued by all such possibilities. Because the way global society is evolving the answer is no! As a theologian, I see all developments through the lens of the scriptures. For example, Donald J. Trump, represented the worst imagery for individual or collective sustainability at home or abroad! Trump was, and is, and will be the greatest enduring legacy of ruination for any sustainable existence. Unless!

Whoopi, hostess of, The View, will not mention 45 by name, instead identifies him, “you know who”! This writer refers to 45, as it, or, the thing. Because, it couldn’t be human, and must be a cross bred of some sort. Most likely of the families of Beelzebub interpreted as producers of evil. (cp. Mark 3:22; Matthew 10:25-28).

tough road to hoe

“The true Christian was intended by Christ to prove all things by the word of God. All churches, all clergy, all ecclesiastical professors. Making sure all doctrines, sermons, writings, opinions and practices could be supported by examination of the scriptures.”

“These are His marching orders. Prove all by the Word of God; measure all by the means of the Bible; compare all with the  standard of the Bible; weigh all in the balance of the Bible; examine all by the light of the Bible; test all in the crucible of the Bible.”

“That which cannot survive the fire of Biblical examination, reject, repudiate and cast away. This is the flag which He nailed to the mast. May it never be lowered!” John Wycliffe.

And by so doing you will be not among the throngs of the centuries, who failed to heed the Apostle Paul’s exhortation in behalf of Jesus, “Let no one deceive with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the people of disobedience.” (cp. Ephesians 5:6).

And now you know why the world is in such a mess. A mess that the world community might not ever recover from. Because Jesus said, “These things are the beginning of sorrows.” (cp. Matthew 24:8).

politics gone haywire

“From my 30th year on I have increasingly regarded the church as an institution which defended such evils as slavery, color caste, and exploiters of labor and war. I Think the greatest gift of the Soviet Union to modern civilization was the dethronement of the clergy, and the refusal to let religion to be taught in the public schools,” W.E.D. DuBois.

DuBois was a 19th century civil and human rights activists. Much of what he feared about religion very much haunts us today. Made up from a huge evangelical fundamentalist movement of perhaps 70 million people. And among them numerous clergy numbering like specs of sand on a beach. Many of the hierarchy within their movement declared themselves to be prophetess and prophets. And they told their congregants,  that God had told them that Trump would be a two term President. Who would save Christian America from destruction. And then, following Trump would be the two term presidency of Mike Pence.

Do not believe any one who says God speaks to them in  directly. It’s a lie, and a source of great manipulation. That is steeped in spiritual criminology.

All of such ilk know this “Woe to you who plunder, though you have not been plundered; and you who deal treacherously, though they have not dealt treacherously with you! When you cease plundering, you will be plundered, when you make an end of dealing treacherously. They will deal treacherously with you!” (cp. Isaiah 33:1).

It will happen, how that will be determined by Divine Providence. Again believe no one, who declares differently.

“O LORD, be gracious to us, we have waited for You. Be our arm every morning, our salvation also in time of trouble.” (cp. Isaiah 33:2

So when Trump declared that the election had been stolen from him. There was no doubt that in their minds that the theft had occurred. And, they have not changed their minds. To them it doesn’t matter if Trump’s second impeachment trial ends in impeachment or not. Trump will always be there savior!

Frankly, we are seeing the true ideologies of the Republican party through the eyes of Georgia, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green and Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy. And in the Senate the likes of, Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham. There political ideologies are focused upon extreme bigotry. With just a few exceptions, they are insufficient in numbers to return the Republican party as viable alternative within a two party system.

y condemn the whore

“When God fights, it’s of small consequences whether the hand that holds the sword is big or small,” Joan of Arc.

Is the aforementioned is true, why? If it’s so, it’s because of the following. For the word of God is sharper than any two edged sword, piercing to the very consciousness of human life. Thus able to discern the thoughts, intentions and purposed of anyone and reacts accordingly. (cp. Hebrews 4:12 with exegesis).

It starts here as Pauline prayer. Meant to be prayed over by all of God’s saints. In the first person which is the petitioner. And it must, also be carefully studied because it’ll take one deep into the realm of spirituality where few dwell. Identify, and focus upon key words.

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of glory. May he give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.

That the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you might know what is the hope of His calling. And what are the riches of His glory, in the inheritance of the saints. (cp. Ephesians 1:17-18).

The modern day church through its congregants are to engaged in secular affairs, and through them struggling to end what doesn’t meet with their approval.

What shame this has brought upon the church and secular society. Governments legislate that’s their job. And when their legislation is in opposition to what the scriptures declare. Christians pray! That’s why the aforementioned euphemism about the sword is more than that. It’s all about, Hebrews 4:12 and Ephesians 1:17-18).

Frankly, there’s a lot more involved to successful praying, but that’s a good way to start reversing ungodly legislation. And frankly again, it probably will not work because huge swaths of Christendom will not forsake their whoring of politics with faith.

Here’s what plaguing Christendom. Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” (cp. 1 Corinthians 15:33). And it’s more than just physical association, it’s also about the mental aspects of ones aspirations. If the whore is condemned in the scriptures, so is the pimp! In other words leave the carnal to carnal, and the spiritual to God and everything will work out as He pleases.

James the brother of Jesus put it this way. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know the that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes themselves enemies of God. (cp. James 4:4).

And that should explain all one needs to know, as to why prayer changes so little.

But be hopeful because you might be what is necessary to once again but the horse before the wagon. “They 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 16:9a).

own that morning star

Therefore, blessed be God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who has hidden the way of truth from those, who think of themselves as being wise and ever so prudent in the things of spirituality. And has often revealed spirituality to humble truth seekers, who have chosen rather to depend upon scriptural truths as God’s guiding light. Not adding or eliminating what Divine Providence in His judgment declared as truth. Then as much as is humanly possible mimic the ways of Christ by thought, action and deed.

Best accomplished as follows in two parts. The first establishes the way, and the second prefects the way.

“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke, as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” (cp. 2 Peter 1:19-21).

Perfecting the way: The Apostle Paul being one of those holy men, Prayed, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of  glory, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.

That  the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His might power.

Which He worked in Christ, when He raise Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places. far above all principalities and power and might and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also that which to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head of the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. (cp. Ephesians 1: 17-21).
