u call that a democracy

“Nothing so strongly impels a man to regard the interest of his constituents, as the certainty of returning to the general mass of people from which he was taken, where he must participate in their business,” George Mason, July 1788, to the Virginia Ratifying Convention.

With their constituents consisting of the nations corporate conglomerates. Which is why Senate Majority Leader Sen. McConnell, a very crafty manipulative politician. Will block any legislation from coming up before the full Senate that would be adverse the their interest.

Make no mistake, Trump loves McConnell because he’s also able to keep his republican colleagues from voting on any legislation adverse to the donald’s interest. Because to otherwise would return those senators to be a constituent from whence they were plucked!

That is why the nations method of taxation is so unfair. With wages not being sufficient for survival unless one has a second or third job.

Wages by law should be indexed to the cost of living, and automatically rise in accordance with the rate of inflation. Benefit packages, for most workers are non-existent. That needs to become an abusive relic of the past.

The nations health care system is horribly inadequate. It must be replaced with a single payer health plan for each and every America. Founded by the federal government, and paid for by the nations corporate conglomerates. Some which pay no taxes, or at the best, very little in taxes.

Corporate conglomerates, and lobbyist of various sorts, with the passive permission of the United States government, have just about erased the unionized work place. It’s an American tragedy, because unionized work places worked with success to eradicated the  inadequacies cited above. Often at great personal sacrifices.

One of the solutions is to bring back the unionized work places. This current government made up of republicans, and most democrats would fight such efforts by going, as far as, to pass legislation making it illegal to unionize the workplace.

Here’s a sad example how union busting works where unions exist. In Florida, it’s illegal for public employees to abandoned the work place by calling for a strike. School teachers in Florida by law can’t strike. If they do, they’ll lose there teachers certification. Once that occurs they become ineligible to teach in Florida. Consequently, Florida teachers are among the poorest paid teachers in the country. And, Florida’s education of students has a poor rating also.

So here’s, how Florida deals with unionized teachers. It’s pathetic and undemocratic! Unionized school teachers have a collective bargaining agreement with individual school boards. Together they try to reach a contract agreement. However, if they reach an impasse in contract negotiations. The school board by Florida law can impose a contract upon the teachers union. The power of unionized collective barging agreements is the power to strike when negotiations reach an impasse. Strikes do wonders for economic, and social equality between the employed and the employer.

a tune of a different sound

When someone says, “Lets go to church!” Most think to themselves ugh! But instead of expressing disgust, they politely decline.

More and more people are exiting their church association for varied and numerous reasons. This duly ordained Padre was one of them. A very long time ago, as aforementioned. He still spies on them because there is a need to know and understand their shenanigans that they are up to. In one word, horrible! What it all boils down to mystification! What a shame because the world needs we Christo’s. Because the world needs a good dose of influence that only we Christo’s can provide.

However, as a Padre, my advice depart, as quickly as possible from organized churches. And, start home churches with a friend or two. Ask other defectors to join you. Make it a gathering of equals with absolutely no hierarchy. Church together where all are equal. Because its a church, the church should have a mission. So select a cause and make it your collective mission. And give that mission a good dose of change. And by all means avoid entanglement with the IRS. Meaning no, IRS 501 (c) (3) filing. Note Psalms 1:1-3 and 2 Corinthians 9:7.

But before that is launched, people must be Bible savvy. Which means, consider putting behind you all those adopted church doctrines. Unless they can be supported from the scriptures. Now, that’s a lot more difficult than might be suspected. For instance, tithing, which is not a church age obligation. Yet is highly prized and encouraged by organized churches.

In this age of the church master the Apostle Paul’s writings. People don’t have to formulate doctrines because they have been formulated for us. If Paul doesn’t teach it, don’t accept it. Don’t add, modify or eliminate the concepts advocated in his various discourses.

Once you’ve become a Pauline scholar master the rest of the Bible, and you’ll become a spiritual powerhouse. Doesn’t have anything to do with success or fame. And, everything to do with a rock solid Christ foundation.

The holy writ is a masterful scroll of divine continuity from Genesis through Revelation well worth mastering. Providing the inquirer with varied insights into human events. And despite, such awareness of disturbing world consequences. A sense of serenity combined with urgency will fall upon each possessor.

turbulent times real solutions

Side bar your honor signals to the court that circumstances have occurred that one of the parties wants to address the court off the record. It’s also a tactic to request a meeting in chambers to work out a compromise.

Humanity is in serious need of side bar with Jesus. That all parities might go beyond a compromise to exoneration. Because humanity is guilty of serious crimes against God.

Oh, I know, more and more, people are concluding that’s old time nonsense made modern. Because science, has unequivocally proven our origins and endings. Therefore, there is no need for godly exoneration.

But such declarations represent the epitome of nonsense. Because the entire calendar of creation proves otherwise. By observation and experience. Meaning proof is before everyone. And realization can occur through experience. Which concludes ending has no value because ones origin moves on to the next step of being.

First the proof. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen. Being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, that they are without excuse.” (cp. Romans 1:20).

And, now the proof. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, they become a new creation. Behold, all things have become new.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:17). The proof is in the experience.

Here’s the path way to the experience. “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession unto salvation.” (cp. Romans 10:9-10).

People have such negative attitudes towards the church for reasons very understandable. Therefore, the aforementioned, seems to work best for the following people in this category. “I was found of them who sought Me not. I was made manifest to them, who asked not of Me.” (cp. Romans 10:20). My best explanation. It’s the miracle of Divine Providence. It’s also the way, this Padre came to know Jesus.

Some readers despise organized religion, but are interested in religious topics. Like the possibility that other God’s coexist with the God of Christianity. Like Allah, the God Muslims worship. If so, do they war with each through out the heavens?

1 truth 2 ways

Two men, who hated each other were on the same ship, one sitting in the stern, the other in the bows. A storm came on, and when the ship was on the point of sinking the man in the stern asked the steersman which part of the ship would go under first. On being told that the bows would go first. “I do not mind dying myself,” he said, “if I can see my enemy die before me.”

Many people do not care what happens to themselves, so long, as they see their enemies suffer first. (Fables Of Aesop-Penquin Classics-“Hating Unto Death).

The Christ way the better way, “Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. May the Lord repay him according to his works,” 2 Timothy 4:14, with this promise, “To Me belongs vengeance 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!” Deuteronomy 32:35.

a hell of an experience

“In reality there is not one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride. Disguise it, struggle with it, beat it down, stifle, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive, and will now and then will peek out and show itself,” Ben Franklin.

Pride with its forces has plagued and ruined individuals, torn apart the best of friends, splintered families into nothingness.

So what’s the answer to Franklin’s analogy? Pride is a matter of attitude whether from the victims or the perpetrators perspective. If being victimized the greater the distance from the perpetrator the better. It’s a behavior that has no outward remedy.

If one is the perpetrator of pride, eventually this will occur. Prideful attitudes have a way of alienating one from others because pride is very transparent, and who wants to be around a self gloating egotist. One of the writer’s of Proverbs put it this way, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, then to divide the spoil the proud.” See Proverbs 16:18-20.

Tis the holiday season which serves as an ideal time to make amends in attitude and behavior. It’s also a time, when others are inclined to forgive and include. Inclusiveness is something we all want and need. Happy and successful holidays.

conflict its end

A snake, having made his hole close to the porch of a cottage. Inflicted a mortal bite on the cottager’s infant son. Grieving over his loss the father resolved to kill the snake.

The next day, when it came out of its hole for food. He took up his axe, but by swinging to hastily, missed its head, and cut off only the end of its tail.

With the passing of time the cottager, afraid that the snake would bit him. Endeavoring to make peace, he placed some bread, and salt in the hole.

The snake, slightly hissing said, there can be no peace between us; for whenever I see you, I shall remember the loss of my tail. And, whenever, you see me, you will be thinking of the death of your son.

It is said, that no one truly forgets injuries in the presence of him who caused the injury. Source: Penguin Classics-A Blood Feud-Fable of Aesop.

Getting bloody what it means

A call to devotion, respect, humbleness and action is what the art of praying is all about. The Lord’s Prayer, or the Christ model of prayer as preferred by this padre. Is indeed an illustrative narration by Jesus, teaching that the execution of the cause, and mission of Christ is the cause of true warriors of the cross. With one phrase from that group of verses having several different applications. As such, Christians should know how to apply all of those verses together when praying.

Consider two applications concerning the clause found in, Matthew 6:11, about “our daily bread.” This posting will discuss two more applications that can be applied, when praying for “our daily bread.”

When praying, “give us our daily.” A common error occurs because many assume it means we have a ‘give me’ and ‘do this for me’ Father in heaven. When actually, it can be associated with our service for Christ. This can be done by providing for the material needs of our communities. Jesus often used phrases in His teachings to represent several practical applications. The phrase give ‘us our daily bread’ is one of them. If you read the gospels, this was important to Jesus. The provisions Christ provides, we should distribute, as the peoples ‘daily bread’ which are gifts from God.

Then of course, “our daily bread” is represented by what God automatically does for us as Christians. This is accordance with Matthew 6:8, “… for your Father knows what you are in need of before you ask Him.”

Then we have Holy Communion. Our daily bread becomes the body of Christ. Luke 22:19, “He took bread, gave thanks, and broke it, and gave unto them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; this do in remembrance of Me.” Representing the broken body of Christ. Not the defeated Christ because defeat is impossible. Christ said, He had already overcome this world, John 16:33. After Christ finished distributing the bread, “He took the cup saying, this cup is the New Testament in My blood, which is shed for you,” Luke 22:20. Closely associate the cup of Holy Communion with this scripture. “And He was clothed with a vesture (his body broken and bloodied) dipped in blood; and His name is called The Word of God,” Revelation 19:13.

Three verses represent yet another meaning of Matthew 6:11, “Give us our daily bread.” “This do in remembrance of me,” Luke 22:19 and 20. Magnificently tied together by Revelation 19:13. I suggest that you memorize those three verses. Then when taking Holy Communion, silently repeat those verses, and experience new depths to your communion observation.

Christ is instructing His followers to recall the full cycle of His life. His plan, and His mission of taking up the hard work of the cross. Symbolic in His broken body. Suggesting as Christ followers that we are required. To put ourselves in harms way for the cause and mission of Christ, if necessary. The most significant role we have is to offer the gospel to humanity. Which under certain circumstances, can be very dangerous. As time progresses towards, His kingdom on earth. Christianity will not be a practice for the faint at heart. That is what Holy Communion is ultimately about. The cycle of his life and our service to him.

The cup representing the blood of Christ is processed in three steps. Accepting the word of Christ, baptism which is the public process of confession by the renouncing of sin. As recorded in Mark 1:4, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Then the participation in Holy Communion is an act of remembering the whole process.

The forgiveness of sin is not automatic. It is a process of individual under taking. We all must ask for forgiveness, Matthew 6:12.

The second phase is controversial only because some argue that disciples are empowered to forgive sin. It is the age old division between the Catholic and Protestant religions. A clergyman is in a unique position, when as a chosen disciple, he listens to sinful confessions. But like any other disciple, (you) we can only show the way. The ultimate remission of sin occurs as a result of the spilled blood of Christ. Matthew 6:12, reads, “Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who wrong us, our debtors.” Taken to mean that the disciple must have been purified by the blood of Christ. Then the disciple is able to show the way to forgiveness but without the ability to forgive sin. All Christ followers, are empowered to assure forgiveness of sin, once the repentant confesses, and accepts the Christ sacrifice. And in the church age, a heart belief in His resurrection from the dead. For it is written, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him shall be saved,” Romans 10:9-11.

As believers in the Christ purpose and mission, we must continue to rebuke our sins and hold no grudges, vs.12. For spiritual perfection, and purity is never ours. But progress can be experienced. The Psalmist wrote, “He restores my soul and leads me in the path of righteousness for His name sake,” Psalms 23:3. Discover its depths, and experience its rejuvenating powers.

The Christ model of prayer, or the Lord’s Prayer, requires that we ask to escape sinful opportunities. By being delivered from the presences of evil, vs 13. To be pure for Christ, is no easy chore.

In conclusion, our Father in heaven is holy, and worthy of our adoration, Matthew 6:9. We pray for His “kingdom to come,” verse 10. Because His is the “kingdom” and the “power” and the “glory”, Amen, Matthew 6:13. We are His instruments for the providing and receiving of “daily bread.”

Perhaps the gospel of John sums up the purpose of the Christ model of prayer. “These things have I (Jesus) spoken to you, that you may have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation. But be of good cheer, I (Jesus) have overcome the world, John 16:33.

Yes, indeed “in the world you shall have tribulation.” The world is a nasty place and it’ll get nastier, as Christendom is made irrelevant for the sanity of a world gone mad. But Christ will always have a remnant, who will not allow Christ to become irrelevant. Therefore; perhaps, we where born for each other. As a remnant of warriors brought together to defend and declare the relevancy of Jesus Christ. Making irrelevant through the arts of acting violently in a nonviolent manner. Those who are the cause of our tribulations.

One last expression the work done for Christ is a work of hardship. Therefore; when appeals are made, its not likely that entire congregations will come forth for the cause, though it would be nice because everybody can do something.

But there are many out there, who are Christians, but left the organized church for many different reasons. Not least among those reasons was because of an association with a church that was about everything. Except making irrelevant those who those who delight in making Christianity an experience of tribulation.

escape the image

By announcing today, “I am a Christian,” is to be considered a weirdo by more and more people with each passing day. Why? Timothy gives us the why’s. Christians are become everything they shouldn’t be. See 2 Timothy 3:5 which reads, “Having a form of godliness, but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

There is a conceptional differences between God’s world view and humans, who populate His creation. God sees the world as a whole without borders. While people who constitute nation states compartmentalize their borders for self preservation and conquest purposes. By there very nature, they work against God. Consequently, Christians everywhere by biblical standards are suppose to resist such efforts. And bring the world under the umbrella of the Creators world view. By peaceful example because instinctively that’s what forces change.

By example, it was penned for Americans. “When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” Declaration of Independence in Congress, July 4, 1776.

The founding father’s of America designed this nation to connect itself to the Laws of Nature through the Nature of God. Meaning America was created to implement and follow what was observable in nature. A prosperous nation from the production of its harvest of food and superior manufacturing instincts. Which represented, gifts from God.

From those observation America would create its governing body to implement laws reflecting God’s ordinances. That’s why abortions are a 20th. century phenomena and not legal under the laws of the founding father’s, as is the case with same sex marriages, along with sexual identity crisis of the 21st. century. Christians have lost respect, and thus, legislative and judicial preeminence.

The founding father’s, far from perfect honored God, with their displays of His presences through out the public arenas. Today it’s not politically correct to do so. Because it erodes inclusiveness of the people, as one. From the founding father’s perspective, politically correctness, and inclusiveness were brought about through the inner cognitive nature of God Almighty

When the inner cognitive nature of God is realized, individually. The unusual always occur. And if not realized the converse happens. Which is playing out in America today?

This planet is God’s! The Psalmist wrote. “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows his handiwork,” Psalms 19:1. Meaning the heavens and the sky provide testimony that the earth is the creation and ownership of God. Day and night provides the same speech. The creative speech of God circumnavigates our earth.

God’s creation is so spectacular it is likened by the Psalmist to a bridegroom emerging from marriage chamber. Fit, and happy like a strong man ready to run a race. See Psalms 19:5.

The ways of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; making wise the simple. Because the testimony of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The path way to the soul and mind, Psalms 19:2-9. Having its reward as noted in verse 10.

David was so overwhelmed by his understanding of God’s creation that he prayed. “Moreover by them is your servant warned; keeping them is a great reward. See Psalms 19: 7-11.

Followed by the universal questions for all believers. “WHO CAN UNDERSTAND HIS OWN ERRORS? CLEANS ME FROM MY SECRET FAULTS, verse 12. Note carefully the following verses. “Keep thy servant from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me. Then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight. O! LORD, MY STRENGTH AND MY REDEEMER, Psalms 19:13-14.

For those who may have seen, the Godfather movies. A petitioner seeking the Godfathers assurance by a promise. The Godfather said, every word I speak is a promise. People outside of the redemption of Christ base their credibility upon what they say. So do Christians, but with this extension. Every thought and word a Christian thinks and speaks should be a prayer. That is what will be captured from a careful study of Psalms 19:1-14. Are you able to discover the prophetic announcements uttered by David?

But this is serious, some real gems lie within the scriptures of Psalms nineteen. One of them being an argument for CREATION over EVOLUTION. Another is God’s permissions to preserve His creation, by being an ENVIRONMENTALIST.

Life evolves with the intent of making every thought and word a prayer, learned from Psalms 19:1-14, but especially verses 13-14.

It’s time to learn how to act up, so that acting out reverses that weirdo image. Because such accusers have no leader to unify,  and replace the truths they taunt to Christendoms shame.

Psalms nineteen provides some of the rational, and power sources, required for Christendoms success. For what it means to be seen, as real, and thus influential.

Truthfulness and its Sour Consequences

A women approached this padre. She feared arrest for something she had done. Her question was simple. Should I admit my transgression to the police? Without hesitation a response was provided, No! She seemed shocked. But, but she stuttered. I’d be lying, and I fear God might punish me. Which of course, brought this reaction. What about the act that could lead to your arrest? Do you think God is going to ignore that act without punishing you? Her face filled with tears. This padre assured her that in the end, God would hear her confession. Offering her His mercy and forgiveness, and all would be okay between her and God. Fortunately for all of us, Christ is all about mercy and irrespective of the wrong.

So I sat her down. Told her that the American judicial system is not about right and wrong. The guys and gals in black robes would like the public to think its about right and wrong, but it is not. And for that matter, so would the other members of the court; the lawyers. It shortens their duty to the state and the public. Also our American justice is more about money than fairness or punishment. Which is why it is all about winning and losing, and not right or wrong.

That’s a lot said in those few sentences. It is the subject matter of semester long law school courses. For that matter, it will come up one way or another for the students three years in law school. But some, will never quite grasp the full context of what is really being taught.

The counsel that was provided to this particular women will serve most well. Never admit to any error or wrong doing that might have negative consequences. Because, you can not withdraw your statements. And furthermore, once admission is given, it removes any maneuvering ability for future negotiations. That’s sound advice whether you live in our Tampa Community or elsewhere through out this nation.

Life is complicated. Always put yourself in the best position to win. Whether it is within, or outside the judicial system. Because if you do not, you could be thrown to the Apes. Now you know, why this writer told the tale of the Apes in the last posting.

This writer clergyman does have a legal education, but he does not not officially practice law. Therefore my practice is limited to providing legal strategies outside of the courtroom that can be used inside the courtroom. It is all apart of ministerial services that this padre offers.

America retaliation at ur doorstep

Trump did it! Moved the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It’s suspected that the United States, and all nations that follow suit can expect retaliatory consequences from an enemy that will not be defeated. ISSI synthesizers!

“Lets say only 1/100th of 1% of all Muslims are inclined toward terrorism. If there are 1.3 billion Muslims world wide, that’s 130,000 Muslim potential terrorists. And as we saw on 9/11, a handful of terrorists (less than 0.0000015% of the world’s Muslims) can do enormous damage; and terrorists are highly motivated lot, willing to die so others may be killed. The vast majority of Muslims may be lovely people, but that doesn’t mean America has nothing to fear from the ummah, ummah meaning community. Thus the core of the problem is not Americans’ ignorance but the enemy within Islam,” James Taranto, American columnist.

O Israel! Why do you not listen beloved, as My first love. “I, even I, am the LORD, and beside me there is no savior,” Isaiah 43:11. And O! America, child of Israel, why do you not continue to take advantage of Genesis 48:16; Romans 4:18? “So then brethren! We are not the children of the bondwoman. Hagar the devils wife and mother of Islam, but of the free Isaac, God’s promised one, Genesis 17:18-19; Galatians 4:31. Have you not learned that Ishmael son of the adulteress Hagar is evil? Genesis 16:11-12. And will be destroyed, Psalms 94:23?

Are you not up to it because the world will call you racist, and the obsessed ones of Islamophobia. But that’s okay because Jesus said it would happen, Matthew 24:9. But that’s okay, too, if one is able to meet the two requirements of, Mark 8:34, if not, than go the way of the many. But of the few, who are able, behold! I come quickly, and My reward is with Me to give to every person according, as their work shall be, Revelation 22:10. For we are the peacemakers, and the children of God, and the kingdom of heaven is ours, Matthew 5:9-10.

the donald trump syndrome

 

A lion and a wild ass were hunting. The lion using his strength and the ass his swiftness of foot. When they had caught a number of animals the lion divided them into lots. “I’ll take the first lot,” he said, “Because as King, I hold the highest rank; and the second one, as your equal partner. As for this third one, it will bring you into serious trouble unless you choose to make yourself scarce.”

Whatever a person undertakes, they should estimate their capacity according to their own powers, and not enter into an alliance to tie themselves up with people, who are to strong for them. (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“The Lions Share”)

Their is a character who roams the land, who is characterized as a roaring lion seeking whom he might devour. How does this occur one might ask? Because we humans wouldn’t make such an alliance, just to be devoured. It’s done through a specialized skill, called deception.

All with a scriptural bases starting with our roaming lion were we are introduced from the get go to a detour from such alliances. Where we find this reference, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil roams about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour,” 1 Peter 5:8. Accomplished through a intoxicating dose of deception, “… who deceives the whole world …,” Revelation 12:9. Giving us a world that looks like this, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9. But in the end it plays out this way, “I the Lord search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every person according to their ways, according to the fruits of their doings,” Jeremiah 17:10.

Life is a struggle with all kinds of lion like scams. Designed which at best, at the end might suggest the making of yourself scarce. But there is a way for avoidance outside of being sober and vigilant. Which is to depend upon the following, “Direct my steps by your word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me. Redeem me from the oppression of man. That I may keep your precepts,” Psalms 119:133-34.

World drama from God on the world scene

14 May 1948, one of the most significant dates in modern history. Because it signaled yet another prophecy to be fulfilled which would be one of many. Launched centuries ago, by the least of the powerful, Daniel. When he stood before King Nebuchadnezzar, the most powerful person on the world scene. And said, “But there is a God in the heaven who reveals secrets, and he has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days …,” Daniel 2:28.

For our discussion of what shall befall us in the last days, we’ll start with one of God’s historians, Ezra. Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah (for our purposes, we are interested in one phrase which is, ‘shall serve the king of Babylon 70 years, Jeremiah 25:11) might be fulfilled. The LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia. So that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: “All the kingdoms of the earth the LORD God of heaven has given me. And he has commanded me to build him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah (the southern kingdom). And build the house of the LORD God of Israel which is in Jerusalem.

Who is among you all his people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah. And build the house of the LORD God of Israel which is in Jerusalem.

And whoever is left in his place where he dwells, let the men of his place help him with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, beside the freewill offerings for the house of God which is Jerusalem.” End proclamation of Cyrus king of Persia, Ezra 1:1-4. At the beginning of his Medo-Persian reign in 538 B.C. through 331 B.C. Remember that date because it’s significant for the date of, 14 May 1948. Which will be developed as a startling piece of prophetic history, as this series develops. And it’ll help you understand modern world chaos. Because it’s tied to Jacob’s prophecy in Genesis 49:1, where he said, come and learn what will occur during the last days. And that befalling, will be catastrophic! And you, recipient of this discussion will be one of its participants. Whether or not, you are a Christian. And by that, its the recognition of what Romans 10:9-10 declares by experience. Which leads to this life transforming acknowledgment of 2 Corinthians 5:17. It’s all apart of the world drama from God on the world scene.

Cyrus wasn’t a Jew, he was a Persian Yet he did the unthinkable by freeing the Jews. Who were taken as prisoners by his Babylonian predecessor and made to be slaves through out his empire. And while prisoners, the lands of Abraham were ruled by Jew haters and the nations wealth was stolen. Which always occurs because to the victor goes the prize.

Understand this and you got what it takes to understand world drama from God. Because you’ll think individually and in a global manner. Because it applies to you and me, and to world leaders and their governments. And he changes the times and the seasons; he removes kings and raises up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; he knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with him, Daniel 2:21-22.

Even the least of the mighty can be elevated to become world changers which as Daniel’s experience. And preserved for us by example in, Daniel 4:17. It’s all the doings of divine providence whose ways are designed to dumbfound the high and mighty. Aptly represented by King Nebuchadnezzar whose end is found in Daniel 4:25.

Skeptics Abound Everywhere

Skeptics do abound everywhere when it comes to the authenticity of God’s historical account of all beginnings. Which begins in what he calls the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1). Continues as he puts forth his own struggles for survival. With a horrible ending with the culprits getting booted from the heavens. With a declaration from the heavens declaring trouble for earths inhabitants. A force of events all can identify with because we are all the recipients of trouble. (Revelation 12:7-9;12). Then taking humanity on a journey from life to death. And all that lies in between, including life after physical death. (Hebrews 9:27). Then of all things allowing us to know that he will return and restore order. (Hebrews 9:28). The very heart beat of all inward desires. It’s what all humans struggle for and can’t obtain. Because order is of God, and we are the fallen creatures of disorder.

So when people are unable to understand the fascinating accounts of ancient scriptural history to modern world drama. If the truth be known, those that doubt biblical authenticity lack biblical knowledge.

While what has been said, can be somewhat challenging because centuries of historical events are tucked in between those sentences. That’s why its important to know your scriptural world which will lessen the challenges.

Godly tip for prosperity: “Better is the poor, who walks in his integrity. Then one perverse in his ways though he be rich,” Proverbs 28:6. The latter is guaranteed to result in foot sliding as noted in Deuteronomy 32:34-34. Applicable for individuals and governments.

A Mouse of a friend but the job got done

A Lion was awakened from a sleep by a Mouse running over his face. Rising up angrily, he caught him and was about to kill him, when the Mouse piteously entreated, saying: “If you only spare my life, I would surely repay your kindness.” The Lion laughed, and let him go.

It happened shortly after this that the Lion was caught by some hunters, who bound him with strong ropes to the ground.

The Mouse recognizing his roar came and gnawed the rope with his teeth, and set him free exclaiming:

“You ridiculed the idea of me ever being able to help you. Never expecting to receive from me any payment for your favor. Now you know that it is indeed possible for even a mouse to heap benefits on a lion.” (source: Penguin Classics-Fable’s of Aesop)

Relationships as our lion and mouse discovered can be a devious thing. As noted in Proverbs 27:5-6, “Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” Kudos for our mouse, who proved to be a mighty mouse. A mouse of its word and without deception.

“Ordinary people are capable of doing extraordinary things. That is what life is all about,” Studs Terkel.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” Apostle Paul.

God’s greatest challenge

Like you and me, God also had to show some resiliency to His character in order to meet an unprecedented challenge. His kingdom was under attack. In the end the culprit and his associates were booted out of the realm of the Holiest of the Holy, our Creator and defender. Read about it in Revelation 12:7-9. With verse nine being the embodiment of our earthly troubles. Which reads, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

How powerful is Satan? From Isaiah 14:15-16, we discover these facts. There will come a time when Lucifer, son of the morning, who weakened the nations, (verse 12). Who will be dispatched to the pits of hell (verse 15). But in the mean time, he is characterized as the one, who made the earth tremble, who did shake kingdoms (governments) verse 16.

And who is preoccupied on earth, hoping, no doubt to shake to their death God’s chosen embodied in the nations of Israel and the United States. But God, as our defender has ordained, despite our combined sins. Has promised, “For Zions (Israel) sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s (capital city) sake, I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation as a lamp burns,” Isaiah 62:1.

Stand with Israel because that is the way for personal and national survival! It’s recorded in the book that so many today despise which is the root of Americas national and falling stature globally. Comes these words from the God of Abraham. And, “I will bless them that bless you, and curse them that curse you; and in you (Israel) shall all families of the earth be blessed,” Genesis 12:3

Our people, and its government struggle to exhaustion to find fixes for our combined struggles. Our personal dilemma’s are as tiring as are national and international ones. When we have the reason, and purpose for what ails us as individuals, and a nation just spelled out and with the solution. With one word that epitomizes the cure. Found in Isaiah 62:1, which is the word ‘salvation,’ then what plagued us before God, will unite us with God. And the salvation of our lamp will burn again as a bright light. Meaning two things, first a personal relationship with Jesus Christ or God (John 10:30). Accomplished by confessing ones sins and acknowledging the process of John 3:16-18. It will produce the newness of life found in 2 Corinthians 5:17. And then a return to honor our Judeo-Christian heritage, as individuals and a nation starting with Genesis 12:3.

Acing your physicals

A patient on being questioned by his doctor about his condition. Answered that he had had an unpleasantly heavy sweat. “That’s good,” said the doctor.

The next time he was asked how he was. He complained of a shivering fit that had nearly shaken him to pieces. “That’s good too,” was the doctor’s comment.

At his third visit, he inquired once more about the man’s symptoms. A was told that he had diarrhea. “Good again,” he said, and took himself off.

When one of the patient’s relatives came to see him, and asked what was going on? “Well if you want to know,” he replied, “I’ve had so many good symptoms that I’m just about dead.”

It often happens that our neighbors not knowing where the shoe pinches us. Congratulates us on the very things which we ourselves find hardest to bear. (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“Favorable Omens)

Christ understands where the shoe pinches. That is why he said, “Come unto me, all who labor (beside personal labors, think in terms of labors for Christ) and are heavy laden, (burdened with misunderstandings, and or, persecutions in His service) I will give you rest. Take my yoke (way) upon you and learn of me; (emphasis is on learn of Me, a 66 book process + as the Spirit enlightens) for I am meek and lowly at heart, and you shall find rest for your souls. For my yoke (way) is easy, and my burden light,” Matthew 11:28-30.

World changers what it means how its done

We are told that God created the heavens and the earth, Genesis 1:1. The earth later referred to as a garden, and described as Eden somewhere in the Eastern part of the world, Genesis 2:8. Which was perfect, for all habitats with its history discoverable in the first three Chapters of Genesis. But that didn’t last, for the earth and all its habitats were cursed. Also discoverable in those early chapters, and beyond. It’s why we die, fight and war. With larger life forms eating smaller life forms. With the earth being restless with constant destructive eruptions. No one today would call earth a Garden within Eden.

In due time, God introduced a remedy called Jesus Christ. And from that remedy, would come the following. “Now, therefore, you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of the household of God. Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone. In whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit,” Ephesians 2:19-22. That’s part of what it means to be a WORLD CHANGER!!! Changed from within first, then sharing ones change so that others are no longer strangers or foreigners, but fellow citizens.

It’s accomplished through His church. With the church not being one of those God condemned things discovered in Revelation 2:1-3:22. Which are very visible, and dot the American landscape and conform to the will of the government and their corporate masters but not God. Got some questions? Read yesterdays discussion, “Change Makers.” But rather the church is a codified individual, who assembles with like minded people. Who become small bands, who are difficult to detect, as they strike God’s foes with their swords and disappear. Insights discovered with the 17 December 2016 discussion, “Christendoms Future City A War Away.” That completes what it means to be a world changer and introduces how it’s done.

Getting it done though takes the stone like character of Christ, who is the chief cornerstone. Were many are not willing to go because of the sacrifice and danger. It’s a great misnomer to think that getting it done for Jesus must be done through violence. Because Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God,” Matthew 5:9, and in the same breath, “Blessed are they, who are persecuted for righteousness sake; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven,” verse 10. Who would prosecute peacemakers? Muslims and secular governments, that’s who! And even, some of your church going neighbors. And not to be left out of the mix ones on family, and befuddled agnostic and atheist neighbors. While at the same time, Jesus said, “Think not that I have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword,” Matthew 10:34.

Oh! How our nay-saying foes love what they suspect are dichotomies. Declaring that such scriptures demonstrate the contradictions of Christendom; and therefore, Christendom is a falsehood. They are both deaf and made sightless, so no need exists to explain them away. Other than to say that it’s an incurable disease, apart form God’s intervention, Proverbs 20:12, “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the LORD has made them both.” Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again. “He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their hearts, lest they should see with their eyes. Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them,” John 12:39-40. For the scriptures says to the Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show My power in you, and that My name might be declared throughout all the earth,” Romans 9:17. So lets sock it to them, big time. For that reason God raised up our naysayers; in all of their various forms that His name might be declared through out the land.

Become, well acquainted with yourself through 1 Peter 2:5-6. Because individual Christians are likened to as ‘living stones,’ who are anchored to the chief cornerstone of Ephesians 2:20, who is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is a masterful illustrative artist. What He said thousand of years ago to those of His era, is applicable, and works for us today. Though divine, He often referred to himself as the Son of Man. With that phrase being used a total of 88 times in the New Testament. With such references making him very human. Like what is said in Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man, came not to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Therefore God’s intervention in the affairs of humanity, and His purpose for the Son of Man and His Stones. It’s illustrated through Mark 8:34, when He had called the people to himself along His disciples, He said to them, “Whosoever desires to come after Me, let them deny themselves, and take up their cross and follow Me.” With His cross symbolizing action, persecution, prosecution and death. And that’s what it means to be a sword whirling peacemaker who is blessed through persecution referenced in Matthew 5:9-10. In other words, His stones are to condemn with strength and with visibility everything offensive to what the scriptures teach.

Christ was the perfect societal trouble maker. That’s what he meant, when He said, “Think not that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword,” Matthew 10:34. Which means violence, but not through His living stones. Because the scriptures teach that justice and retribution belong to God. Our job is make clear to society exactly what will bring about His justice and retribution.

That is best done through small codified groups, maybe as small as two. Who can easily strike at evil, then disappear. But there is power through huge numbers. But take note, “Likewise the Spirit also helps our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 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,” Romans 8:26-27. Suggesting that our small groups, are silently adding to their numbers. Praying for a great ground swelling of living stones, who come out of seemingly from nowhere. And congregate at some Spirit determined location, denouncing Americas godlessness. Refusing to be dispersed at government insistence. Whether local or federal, even as force begins to take hold. America has lost its spiritual destiny, and the nation is beyond decaying, it’s putridness is toxic to survival as a nation under God. This is where the stones of Jesus become violent! Not of ourselves, but of God knowing we can’t prevail. So we have to pray, for God’s justice and retribution. Which can manifested itself as follows, “To me belongs vengeance and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time. For the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them shall make haste,” Deuteronomy 32:35. Many swords are at God’s disposal. He can raise up his enemies, like Muslims to punish individuals or nation states. Even using weather patterns as a viable weapon, if He so chooses. Thus giving clarity of meaning to Matthew 10:34. Because the ox knows his owner, and the ass his masters crib, but America  has rebelled against God. Modified from Isaiah 1:3, but the truth keep in tact, especially verse four. America must repent or be destroyed!

Hopefully this discussion has contributed to what it means to be a world changer and how its done. The unknown to many is the willingness and ability to sense what the Spirit is saying. Then having faith to act in whatever form the communication comes. After all the Spirit is within each lively stone, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

The world at your finger tips

The name Jacob brings little significance to most. But for some it’s a name of great importance and significances. Because it was said by God, “Your name shall be called no more Jacob but Israel. For as a PRINCE you have power with God and with men, and hast prevailed, (meaning Jacob had struggled with God and man)” Genesis 32:38, and note Genesis 48:16. Volumes of history past, present and future are contained in those two verses.

But for now, just these few thoughts. With God making Israel a prince, a reference to royalty, as Jesus is known as the “Prince of Peace,” Isaiah 9:6. The name change from Jacob to Israel was symbolic to Jacob becoming reborn. A necessary process that would be necessary centuries later, if people were to be reconciled to God. Note this carefully peace is a gift from God, and peace is a particular indicator for individuals, as well as nations. Because a peace less individual,or nation suggest conditions of separation between themselves and God. Which at best spells complicated stress, and at its worse misery. Jesus said, “Peace I give unto you, my peace, I give unto you; not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid,” John 14:27.

This is what God offered the modern world through Israel (Jacob). This gift is the greatest of gifts God offers individuals and nations. From the aforementioned symbolic name change of Jacob to Israel symbolically picturesque for individual reconcilement with God. If you haven’t already done so, claim that gift today for yourself, and experience John 14:27. Then help America to understand what it means to be reborn politically and to know the peace of less stress and misery. God’s often works His mercy with threads of duality. In this instance His presences gives individuals what they want most, ‘PEACE,’ and then makes, ‘PEACE,’ available collectively for the nation.

For some of us it’s easy to understand why God is upset with three biblical empires. Each destined to be God’s mouth piece to individuals and the community of nations. It’s all wrapped around Joesph. Who learned from his father Jacob that his two sons Ephraim and Manasseh were destined for greatness. Ephraim’s seed would result in the birth of “Multitude of Nations.” Which became Great Britain and her Common Wealth of Nations. While his older brother Manasseh would also be “GREAT.’ It was through Manasseh that the United States was born, Genesis 48:19-21, (verse 21 Israeli nationhood 1948) Their combined history reaches back to the Abrahamic covenant recorded in Genesis 17:4.

Israel, Great Britain and the United States have pretty much walked away from their destiny. So this ancient prophecy, may once again repeat itself in our modern age. From 2 Chronicles 36:16, we learn that people have mocked the messengers of God. Despising the very words of God. Adding insult to injury by ignoring His prophets. UNTIL THE WRATH OF THE LORD AROSE AGAINST THE PEOPLE TILL THERE WAS NO REMEDY. It would appear that God’s wrath against His chosen people is playing out through the global theater today. The Apostle Paul, minister to the Gentile world wrote the following, “Be not deceived, GOD IS MOCKED, for whatever a man sows that shall he also reap,” Galatians 6:7.

A new America

The government is a castrated giant unable to make necessary compromises for the peoples good. For many reasons, but for now consider this, fifteen unelected group of people known as, the, “Independent Payment Advisory Board,” exists. Those fifteen people will determine whether or not the way your doctor wants to treat you is to expensive. And if this advisory board determines that it’s to expensive, then your doctor can’t by law proceed with his treatment plan. It could boil down to whether you live or die. Do you want to put your heath and well being in the hands of such an unconstitutional board? And, that’s just one aspect of their power. There is no place in the United States Constitution where such power given to such people. That in itself should motivate people to demand a complete evaluation of Obamacare. But will it?

Obamacare is promised a furlough under a Trump presidency. That doesn’t mean that when the furlough ends Americans will have an improved health care system. We the people must make the Trump presidency redesign a health care system that meets the needs of the people. A that will require the collective voices and energy of we the electorate.

A collection of buffoons are playing government at the peoples expense. And the people need to remake their republic in the image of its long lost Judea-Christian roots, as they travel to rebuild their republic. And know this, the process will be will be uncomfortable. But is it worth returning America to its origins of divine intervention? Which is best described from two scriptural texts, that will occur tomorrow.

We the people have this rare historic opportunity to change America! I pray that we will have the fortitude and determination to do just that. Remember Donald Trump thrives on praise and acceptance. Use it encourage Trump to govern from a Christ centered perspectives. Trump brags America first. To our founding fathers that meant allegiance to our Judea-Christian principles. That must be the end result of his presidency

Remember the counsel of Solomon, who said, “I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all,” Ecclesiastes 9:11. This is our time and chance. It may never come our way again.

How labor strife happens

“It’s of great importance to set a resolution, and not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; an he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second time and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart and in time depraves all its good disposition,” Thomas Jefferson, 1785.

Jefferson got it right, as his truth reaches us today. Where workers are blamed for their inability to govern. Now disparate to save their hides, they must blame the people, who make prosperity happen and nothing to do with budget shortfalls within governments. Or corporate conglomerates, always arguing that they can’t be competitive on the world market because of their workforce.

So here is what God Almighty, said about such scoundrels. “These six things the LORD hates; yes, seven are an abomination unto him. A proud look (ever notice that look on a politicians face) and (what they do best) a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood. (as partners with corporate conglomerates to deprive working people fair wages. For the sole purpose of keeping them oppressed for their combined sole gain. Which, amounts to shedding innocent blood) A heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that swift in running to mischief. (And the working people hurt because of their imaginations and swiftness to misbehave) A false witness that speaks lies, and that sows discord among the brethren, (a favorite tactic of state governments reaching the feds, as they have become as Jefferson put it heartless because of lying tongues), Proverbs 6:16-19, with emphasis this writer through out.

Yes, you can believe it, when Obama and state governors say the nation is emerging form its worse recession since the 1940’s. Because Wall Street and corporate conglomerates continue to show record profits. But, it’s been at the expense of working people. With millions of lost jobs that are not going to return. With most of the remaining work force expected to work harder for less money.

To make the cycle almost complete, they must crush the collective bargaining rights of public service employees. Following the example of corporate conglomerates, who have pretty much destroyed collective bargaining. Reducing their employees to poverty wages and increased cost for heath insurance and retirement benefits. Then they’ll turn their powers of destruction by insisting that the working class assume a greater tax liability. And politicians must answer to their master, who aren’t masters of anything, except greed. It’s we the people, who are the masters, and we better assume our rolls. Or God have mercy on the fallen, to the depraved politicians and corporate greed mongers.

So throughout America its crunch time. It’s time to destroy them before they destroy you. No matter how you perceive Jesus Christ. This is certain, He was a great teacher, who taught many esoteric concepts missed by most. One of them was economics. Where he insisted, using Timothy as his spokesperson, “For the scriptures says, you shall not muzzle the ox that treads out the grain; and the laborer is worthy of his reward,” 1 Timothy 5:18.

What’s going by the feds, state governments and corporate conglomerates is war that is no different than any other war they have fought against the workforce. Tactics for now are different while they nonviolently are determined to crush workers rights. Working people must not allow that to happen. When government pushes, working people must bush back harder. And if those government becomes violent along with the nations corporate conglomerates, then working people have the right to self defense. Spiritual depravity leads to that kind of behavior.

Defense starts now with these Christ economic principals. James is the New Testament authority on economics which centers around material provisions. Where he said, “If a brother or sister is naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say to them, depart in peace, be warmed and filled. But you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works is dead,” James 2:15-17.

Meaning whatever workforce protesters need by way of regional coordination, now is the time for preparation. There you’ll have to read between the lines because each will prepare and serve according to their interest and talent. Do so because, think not that failure to respond will not impact you because it will. In small ways it already has with surging consumer prices. But that’s just the beginning because the impact of governments to earn profits for corporate conglomerates will only intensify. Then turning their guns on you to bear a greater tax burden for balancing their budgets. You see there is plenty of money in America. Its just that the feds and the states don’t know how to budget it. For starters the feds must end their trillion dollar wars and global expansion of military bases. The states must focus only on providing for the welfare and safety of the people. To pay for that they must place a greater tax burden on corporations within their respective states. And the working class must earn more money and pay less in taxes. Don’t say it can’t be done because even in so called difficult economic times they were busy churning out stunning profits. America needs a new experience with economic equality in the workplace and marketplace. If we all do our part, it can happen! It must happen, if America is ever to put an end to the harm from lies that were unfolded by Jefferson. Jefferson’s analogy represents modern America. Truth telling, and truth acting is what America needs. But it’ll only occur because of the sacrifices and actions of the American workforce.
