here there and everywhere

Pushing gay lifestyles as acceptable in public schools, puts the handwriting on the wall. Everyone should be able to read it because godless students will eventually make for a godless nation.

Urging  godlessness along is an unfortunate reality. God has been made illegal in the Tampa public schools, the surrounding communities, and through out Hillsborough county, and across the nation.

IT MUST BE STOOPED! Or the anger of God will be manifested here, there and everywhere. Making COVID-19 look like child’s play.

Schools are unsafe because of student violence which has a cascading effect beyond the schools. Meaning like electronics violence has a cascading effect beyond the schools. So it is with violence in the schools. One component part of godlessness spills into the neighborhood. Connecting itself there, and to the greater community at large.

But violence can be more than a physical act. A very violent, but silent act occurs annually across the nation. It’s more like the components of an electrical system. When it blows, sudden darkness occurs!

This very violent; but silent component is about to blow its darkness, again upon the nations school children, for about the umpteenth time. It is growing in momentum and acceptance. It is blowing out the component parts of light, for now. That light is Jesus, who said, “I am the light of the world!”

The clouds of darkness are emerging with His light, making His light indistinguishable. Allowing for the emergence  of evil, as being made more acceptable.

It has not always been that way. The absences of God from schools. There was a time in public schools that teachers would write a Bible verse on their blackboards.

Did it serve a useful purpose? With certainty, yes! Because God’s word in itself, is life. Jesus said, It is the Spirit that gives life …. The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life,” John 6:63. In verse 63, I omitted a significant phrase, “the body profits nothing.”

Meaning the body does not give life. The miracle of Genesis 2:7, repeats itself every time a baby is born. Genesis 2:7 teaches that life doesn’t exist until God breathes life into a human form. With that creative act by God. A life form became a living soul.

We also learn that Jesus is the Word of God, Revelation 19:13. Another unexplainable miracle because when you hold your Bible, you are holding the living breathing Word of God.

We learn from 2 Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by the inspiration of God. (meaning God breathed in and through those who penned the scriptures)

And is profitable for learning, scolding, correction, and for instruction in righteousness.

So that everyone may be able to cope with what life offers. Sometimes by ways of seemingly overwhelming challenges.

America 1st-3rd class Y it happened

It has been said that the more things change the more they stay the same. In the instance that is to follow the shoe does not fit. Leaving the nation to suffer the consequences.

It is because as the historian noted centuries ago. “This a rebellious people, lying people, who will not hear the law of the LORD,” Isaiah 30:9. And, “Woe to the rebellious people, who make an alliance, but not of Me; and who cover with coverings but not with My Spirit, so that they may add sin to sin, Isaiah 30:1.

Same sex marriages made legal, and endorsed broadly by the American citizenry. Adding to the *woes* announced by Isaiah.

Homosexuality a biblical condemned behavior, that most thought would never survive American condemnation.

Not only has gay life styles survived. It’s adherents have successfully reversed the stigma of condemnation.

The final arbitrator, as to who should be condemned will be the posturing of Divine Providence, who set the record straight 1,450 years before our era. Who declared all such behaviors as disgusting, and recorded as such in Leviticus 18:20; 20:13. The death penalty is not applicable today; because we governed by grace, and not the Mosaic law.

Nevertheless, Tertius, who wrote the book of Romans (Romans 16:22) jump started the treatise concerning homosexuality for our era. With his blazing condemnation, and issued through the auspice of Divine Providence concluded, “they are heaters of God!” v.30 More detail through Romans 1:24-32.

The shoe does not fit because it is not the American way. The American is as follows. Coming from, The American Political Science Review, which published their study of political documents from the time period of 1760-1805.

Their study documented that 94 percent of the periods documents had a scriptural foundation. With 34 percent of them containing direct scriptural citations.

The nations first president said in 1798. “Religion is the only solid basis of good morals; therefore education should teach the precepts of religion, and the duties of man towards God.”

John Jay, the nations first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme court said, “The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the Word of God. Continue to read it, and regulate your life by its precepts.”

The nations second President said, “The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there is no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object of life.”

“Religion is the only sound basis of good morals; therefore education should teach the precepts of religion and duties towards God,” said Gouverneur Morris. Mr Morris was one of the 56 delegates to the nations Constitutional Convention. At the convention, he spoke more often then the others. Delivering 173 speeches. Mr Morris must be considered one of the nations great patriots.

The nation since its inception recognized the necessity to teach the Bible in the public schools. They knew that the Bible was the foundation for sound virtues and the pathway to liberty and freedom.

With people regulating their lives around the Word of God’s sound precepts. Knowing that for centuries to come, that Democracy in America would be the envy of the world.

A nation who experienced the fruits of God’s rich entitlements which originated from Genesis 49:21-22. That is the shoe that fits America, and its God inspired destiny.

For a good part of the twentieth century in our public schools, teachers wrote a Bible verse on their black boards. Nearby students could observe and read the Ten Commandments. It was not unusual to see a Bible on a teachers desk. How do I know that, I was one of those students.

Today all that was replaced, as teachers write on their white boards, the vocabulary word of the day. How do I do I know that, I have been there to observe it.

There readers is our short story back into our nations past. A past, rich in God’s bountiful provisions and protection.

But starting at about the last quarter of the 20th century, the Supreme Court turned away from Chief John Jay’s council concerning the Bible. Instead covering themselves in a counsel not known to God.

Showing that some ancient prophecies are very relevant today. Such as those sacred words cited in Isaiah thirty, verses nine and one.

They represent the tragedies of humanity through out history. Reaching right into today’s culture, and sure to be a path not of God’s Spirit. A journey that sin upon more sin. In a dreadful quest gain social and legal acceptance of a whole host of lifestyles for what God calls shameful.

twisted jig saw puzzle solved

Many people argue that they see the cup half half empty, as opposed to half full. Other slogans like draw outside of the box, or why be normal. When in reality when it really counts seeing the cup half empty. Staying well inside the box, hoping to shrink its dimensions or dangers.

Acting like a turtle retreating inside its shell because being inside creates an atmosphere of safety. Defined as being normal.

That other stuff puts one outside of shell and at risk. So in the end, most condemn the boldness of those who say, ‘Why be Normal.’ Behaving otherwise puts themselves and ‘us’ at risk.

All because they have difficulty seeing the Gospels of Mary and Thomas (introduced yesterday) as having the same credibility as the more traditional Gospels of Matthew – John.

And this writer responds by asking why not? After all it is written, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the people of God may be thoroughly finished unto all good works.” (cp. 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Arguing for the stability of civilization, people must live within the box. Voicing other opinions, or by seeing them in any other way is abnormal and counter productive.

One of this writers favorite reactions for such arguments is that God put certain people in place for determining how one should look at the contents in the cup. Clearly directing these gifted ones to determine the extent of say democracy from the contents of within the box. And their determination of normality is their God given gift.

All of which this Padre considers as nonsense. Because it limits imagination, and creativity. Mandating the acceptance of a predetermined society by selected power brokers. Instigated by corporate conglomerates and passed unto their lap dogs, the United States Congress. Review yesterdays discussion.

It is argued by some that the Bible in itself is of questionable authority. They point to the fact that we do not have the original texts.

What we have is one translation after another provided to us by ordinary people. Although these people were considered distinguished scholars and translators.

People with personal agendas; and connected to power, might well have had personal reasons, for wanting particular translations, to favor particular reasoning. When it comes to reasoning power always wins.

Especially, when the outcome is of such great importance to the various power structures within the ruling classes.

They are multiple in number and must unite to control the greater masses of ordinary people.

An efficient way is to control them through their religious superstitions via their Bible. Fixated in their minds by Knighted Hierarchical Theist divided into endless church denominations, and other like minded institutions tagged as religious cults.

When King James of England, commissioned the Bible to be translated from its ‘original language’ into English. It was not from the ‘original languages’ of the Hebrew and Greek.

By the time 1611 had rolled around, sufficient manipulation had taken place, favored by the ruling powers. Resulting in its originality having been so compromised. To the degree that any authentic transitional reliability became very suspect.

Biblical historians reported that King James brought impressive scholars with the very best of interpretative and transitional skills. Four hundred years later the task was finally accomplished.

One can only imagine the haggling that occurred between one generation to the next. Adding credence of non-reliability to the authenticity of the Bible.

They gave the world the King James version of God’s dealing with humanity. With its accompany degrees of entanglements between what would become nation states. And because of that; end time scenarios, for closure of human existence on earth, become very questionable.

It’s suspected that they excluded much that written and said about God. Written by Moses through to the many other credited biblical authors.

Including the absences of what Mary, Thomas and others by inspiration are alleged to have written. Establishing proof that those scholarly giants were plagued with personal biases.

Knowing what we all know about human character. Seems like the skeptics got it right. That it is not possible that the world has a pure translation from any original scrolls to what became the King James Bible.

And today we have the New King James Version, NKJB. And one of the updater’s to the original KJB, was done by no other then, one of the deans, where this Padre earned his theological credentials. I remember him as a person of ego over substance. It seemed what mattered most were letters after his name. Most likely the entire committee echoed like credentials.

If that’s any indication of scholarly credentials; then critics, of those put together over 400 yrs the KJB have successfully sealed their doubts.

Some might wonder just what does all that mean for the body of believers, who through Jesus Christ are His churches. And those structures that we see; and some attend, are nothing more than imitations, for the assembly of His true church.

With many of us being firm believers in Jesus Christ, and everything written about Him. Not from any human historical derivatives, but from personal, and intimate life transforming experiences.

All that was experienced by this writer on, 05 February 1954, at 1800 hrs. Without a Bible, or any human contact, in the most deplorable of circumstances.

Finally I secured a Bible, and started reading it. Approximately 18 months later, I discovered what had so dramatically changed my life.

Recorded by the Apostle Paul. “If anyone is in Christ, they have become new creations. Old things have passed away, and all things have become new.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:17).

If you can’t identify with that transformation. Experience it through following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10.

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

Through such experience, as churches, we see the connection between the Old and New Testaments. Eradicating any, and all shenanigans intended or unintended by those interpreters translators of scriptural scrolls into what became the King James Bible.

Giving us  some intriguing occurrences through out history. Despite any power plays caused by manipulations of biblical texts down through the centuries. With enough authority to silence the critics and skeptics concerning the authenticity of the Bible.

Like the reestablishment of Israel as a nation state in 1948. That singular event resulted in the fulfillment of two biblical prophecies.

It is written in Jeremiah 23:3, “And I will gather the remnant of My people out of all countries to which I have driven them, and will bring them again to their lands, and they shall be fruitful and multiply.”

Then from Isaiah 41:18, this text appears. “I will open the rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys. I will make wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.” This is often referred to as the “flowering of Israel.”

From the barren, and dry lands of the desert, Israel was able to produce an envious world class economy. Also known for their advancements in the field of medicine. Along with becoming a military power of world renown.

All this from lands once inhabited by Arabs, who could not produce a sustainable economy, let alone an envious world class economy.

Because of the majesty of all that, came many personal life transforming experiences through Jesus Christ.

While some might argue that spiritual experiences are based upon emotions. Because the existence of Israel, results in some a recognition, that only a higher power must have been involved.

So Christian opportunist take advantage of the moment to bring the unsuspecting into Christendom. It’s a favorite tactic of certain evangelical cults. Emotional responses seldom last. At best, they settle in as Sunday go mornings jockeys. With no active involvement in the causes Christ enumerate, say in, Matthew 25:35-40.

And such religious experiences, as the critics rightly say, only offers proof that nothing about Christendom is legitimate.

Arguing that, period updates through the centuries was and is necessary, in order to manage the masses. Done in the name of a fictitious character that never existed.

To that I say, “The just shall live by faith.” (cp. Romans 1:17. The believers faith is predicated upon, “… the saving grace of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes ….” (cp. Romans 1:16).

Faith is intimate, and personal, as detailed in the aforementioned experience of this writer. And, millions of others through those same centuries.

God always has the last word. “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, so be it!’ (cp. Revelation 22:21).

All this despite the power grabs, and manipulative interpretations that might have occurred, as a result of 400 hundred years of translations. Nevertheless the prophecies of Jeremiah 23:3 and Isaiah 41:18, fulfilled in our lifetime.

Equally important is the following truth. Because, it occurs constantly every day. “Inasmuch then, as the children, of men and women, have partaken of flesh and blood. He Himself likewise shared in the same, that though death He might destroy him, who had the power of death, that is the devil.” (cp. Hebrews 2:14).

The point being that the King James Bible is most like seriously flawed. Nevertheless. enough verifiable truths escaped from being tarnished. Making it God’s voice as a marvelous gift to humanity.

But for ones own spiritual growth, much remains to be learned from Mary’ and Thomas’ Gospels, and other such writings.

They were set aside some argue by personal biases. Especially against women because they did not want to encourage the empowerment of woman.

Certainly the historical record of Christianity has been to keep woman in their rightful place. Subservient to male dominance in and outside of the home.

Thus robing the world of gifted woman to advance the causes of Christ. And also, reaching all aspects of secular life.

Those men appointed by a King James were commissioned to determined what would become the canonized Bible. Making it the  authentic Bible from their male perspective.

When it comes to spirituality, seeing the glass half full represents what’s wrong with modern Christendom.

We must all condition ourselves to think, and act outside of the box. Doing so results in escaping Christendoms normality.

All in accordance with the standards champion by Christ, our perfect example. So in the end we must mimic the Christ, and not that of the turtle.

“He who testified to these things declared, surely, I will come quickly. Even so, come. Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of us. So be it!” (cp. Revelation 22:20-21).

People! America is being sacked by state governments and the feds. Who have become the lap dogs of corporate conglomerates. Their 21st century aim is power. And being whores to corporate conglomerates, can make that possible.

American citizens to all of them, we are nothing more the disposable garbage.

Only the people can save America. And it must be accomplished through dependence upon the holy writ.

That turns most people off because they sense that religion is the problem. And they are correct. Correct because, Knighted Hierarchical Theist, indeed, have screwed things up in favor of empire building  for self glory!

God hears the calls of the truly humble. Divine Providence hears the calls of the truly humble.

He will do justice for them, but He can’t be seen as a giant sugar Daddy. Everything has a criteria. Here’s His. “For the eyes of the LORD run to an fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those who’s heart is loyal to Him. (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:9).

Nationally tenants faced with months of back rents no longer have federal protections against evictions. Because the Biden Administration and the Congress could not get their act together to extend the eviction moratorium.

Why? Because powerful property conglomerates have complained about their loss of revenues. And politicians got the message, “My reelection is at risk!”

It’s estimated that more than two million people will be evicted from their homes. Creating the worse housing crisis America has ever known.

It’s money over people, when it should be people over money because that’s God’s way!

Then in Florida we Republican fascist thing DeSantis, resisting mandatory masks mandates and vaccine requirements, in conjunction with the Republican controlled state legislature.

To totally forbid local authorities, at every level, to take any action against his executive orders.

Despite Florida’s Highest – Ever Daily COVID-19 case count to more 21,000 in just one day.

That a boy DeSantis, whore your self to your corporate conglomerates, at the expense of public health.

For DeSantis, it’s all about ego! And, certainly not public health! After all that’s what should be expected from a trump supporter! Pure Garbage is the whole lot of them!

In the end this will be their fate. The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. They who sows iniquity (greed) will reap sorrow. And, the rod of their anger will fall. (cp. Proverbs 22:7-8).

They who have generous eyes will be blessed, for he gives his bread to the deserving. Cast out the scoffers, and contention will leave. Yes strife, and reproach will cease. (cp, Proverbs 22:9-10).

On bended knees pray and act. America’s future is at risk. The Christ souldier acts up spiritually, and thus behaves nonviolently. Histories greatest weapons.

Because universal laws triumph, over all other laws. Time tested by Christ Himself and many after Him. Which will reach us, and beyond. It’s a matter of determination and availability.

lap dogs at your service

Centuries ago Jesus graced the surface of this earth. During His short existence here, He introduced new expectations for those would be tagged Christians.

So this discussion will journey into those traditional gospels. However, for the reader wanting verification, for what is presented here. Read the Gospel according to Mark because of its brevity, when compared to the other three gospels. There you will learn just what Christendom was suppose to be about from the Man Himself.

There are other gospels such as the Gospel of Mary which is very interesting. Mary is credited with motivating His followers, who were scared that they too would be killed. Resulting in a fearless band now determined to globally establish Christendom, as an influence to change the world.

Furthermore some thought Jesus was her lover, or perhaps His wife. Mary is also credited as being an important strategist to Jesus, as he planned His revolutionary movement.

So is it any wonder that a male dominated society would do their best to obscure such history. So here we are in the 21st century, and woman still fighting to overcome male prejudices.

From the traditional gospels we learn that Christ opposed religion, government and the world of commerce. Because they served the interest of the few and not the many. Which of course are the same problems, we face today.

The revolutionary tactics of Jesus led those forces to eventually execute Jesus. Jesus also taught that those, who followed Him could experience the same consequences.

Suggesting that the practice of Christianity, as a lifestyle would indeed be very challenging. Knowing that following such an revolutionary idealogue, needed careful consideration because it’s varied dangerous.

But strength was their’s because He also taught that that such behaviors would eventually be more dangerous for them.

Hopefully readers will conclude from observation, and experience that the world of government, and commerce were enemies of Christ.

Reaching us today in like manner, because their influences are enormous, creating great disparities in social and economic equality.

The presence of commerce, as it is today is in opposition to the principles thought by Jesus. But a robust commerce is a social and economic necessity.

It is our Christian duty to reform commerce. So that social, and economic equality is experienced by all the people within our communities. Only a unionized work force can accomplish that. So birth such initiatives those of gallantry.

And with the overhaul of commerce; government will takes it’s natural place, as lap dogs of commerce. With the once thought unimaginable, new legislation will emerge. Eradicating social and economic cruelties. The Peoples House must be for all of America.

Here are some thoughts from the Gospel of Thomas. In verse 63, Jesus said, “There was a rich man, who was very wealthy.” He said, “I shall invest my money so that I may sow, reap, plant, and fill my storehouses (plural) with produce. Then I shall lack nothing.”

Thus exposing what characterized him. Unfortunately for him he died during the night. Creating this response from Thomas, “Whoever has ears let them hear!”

Moving on to verse sixty four, we have this reaction from Jesus.  An entrepreneurial person wanted to entertain some guests with a lavish dinner.

So he sent invitations to them. They all declined because their various enterprises needed their attention. They were all people from the world of commerce.

He sent an employee with invitations asking them to be his guests. Each politely declined. Telling the employee that business affairs required their attention.

Accepting the news he ordered his employee to go wherever necessary, and invite, whomever he finds for dinner.

With Jesus messaging, “Buyers, and merchants will not enter the places (plural) of My Fathers house.”

What is the lesson Jesus would have us understand from the Gospel of Thomas? It’s a message with no differences from the traditionally accepted four gospels.

Jesus employed some pretty strong remarks concerning selfishness. “Depart from Me you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” (cp. Matthew 25:41).

Yep! There is an invisible world out there that most know very little about. Masters of deceit, and the parents of capitalism.

The world of business with its varied aspects of commerce; seem to be worlds, not favored by the revolutionary founder of the Christian movement.

Most likely because they refuse to apply the Christ principals of social and economic justice to their varied enterprises. It’s not all for one which is me, but rather equality for one and all, with me.

Learn about the complexities of your world for better over all sustainability. That knowledge can’t be intellectualized. It must be spiritually absorbed by the God presence in you.

Activated when you are one with Him. There! Blessings! If not follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10, Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek.

Don’t expect to immediately become a spiritual seer. It’s a process of growth from the careful study of the scriptures. Furthermore Divine Providence may have another destiny for you. What’s important find it, and go with it. And you’ll find, worlds once unimaginable.

magical workings of a teeter-totter

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

how something becomes nothing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

dirty needs a good cleaning

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Battle Hymn of the Christian

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

how a America is toileting its future

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

a Two way Choice

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trying times answering the call

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Making America Great Again

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Alex and his Grecian horse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sliding foot grip on America

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

american lawlessness punished

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Forging the glory of the United States. “By the God of your father, who will help you. And by the Almighty, who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath. Blessings of the breast and of the womb,” Genesis 49:25.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

intellectual violence cured

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Setting the record straight

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

America America what have u done

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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