wackiness

“Give us, O Lord, a steadfast heart which no unworthy affection may drag us downwards. Give us an upright heart which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. Bestow upon us, also O Lord our God, understanding to know your wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you through Jesus Christ our Lord,” Thomas Aquinas.

If in anyway the determined among God’s devoted ones seek to magnify God, as did, Thomas Aquinas. This then is some of what they can expect as they journey that path. “The steps of devoted people are ordered by the LORD. And He delights in their ways. Though they stumble at times, they shall not be utterly fail. For the LORD upholds them with His hands.” (cp. Psalms 37:23-24).

And sometimes outside, of normalcy of mortal expectations. It can’t be learned, it must be experienced. Resulting in ones life forever be changed. It’s something one doesn’t often talk about because people will think one is on the wacky side.

So It is recorded. “Are they not all ministering spirits (Angels) sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” (cp Hebrews 1:14).

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

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

“I would rather feel compassion than the meaning of it. I would hope to act with compassion without thinking of personal gain,” Thomas Aquinas.

“Blessed are they who considers others. The LORD will deliver them in times of trouble.” “The steps of good people are ordered by the LORD. And He delights in their ways. Though they should fall, they will not be utterly cast down. For, the LORD will uphold them with His hands.” (cp. Psalms 37:23-24; Psalms 41:1).

oneness

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

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

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

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

fortunate r the ones

“Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, faithful perseverance in waiting for You, and hope of finally embracing you,” Thomas Aquinas.

More than ever I wonder why people everywhere aren’t in pursuit of solace in and through Christ Jesus. Especially as an pandemic like no other sweeps the globe.

With politicians everywhere making noise but utterly unable to govern.

Then it dawns on me it’s because of all those institutions who call themselves churches. The church is suppose to light the way but unfortunately the church is very much the problem. Do I need to enumerate the problems they have caused? Certainly not! Of course, there are exceptions but their light. But, the blanket of darkness from the majority has mostly hidden their light,

This Padre after ordination, and then with an association with the church a quick exit for me occurred. And over the years ministering to the public has been, and is, my passion.

This is my experience with Divine Providence. And I suspect it happen that way for the prophet Isaiah, Moses and Paul and many others absent their fame.

Recorded for us by Paul. “But Isaiah was very bold and says, ‘I was found by those who did not seek Me. I was made manifest to those who did not ask of Me.'” (cp. Romans 10:20). In the process God was making Isaiah aware of the truth. (cp. Isaiah 65:1).

If the reader is outside of our Christ family, perhaps Divine Providence will be gracious to you. By welcoming you into His family just by applying, Romans 10:9-10. And if you are one of the fortunate, there is hope for family, friends, neighbors and associates.

Few like to be preached to because it smells to much like organized religion. Here’s a pathway that they just might respond to. “Now thanks be to God who always leads us to triumph in Christ, and though us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15).

two sides from the same coin

“Genius is the ability to independently arrive at, and understand concepts that could normally have to be taught by another person,” Immanuel Kant.

True from one perspective which is the human reality, but not always from the spiritual. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. By faith, we understand that the worlds were formed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were made of things not seen. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for those who come to God must believe He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (cp. Hebrews 11:1;3 and six).

tough going overcome

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can you can know what you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it,” Maya Angelo.

I can identify with Maya, but I’ve found my best source for rising out from whatever it is, not from humanism or the church. They speak from to many confusing voices. It’s found from what’s rooted in the Bible. Consider the following and apply their truths to your life. “We are pressed on every side, yet not crushed, perplexed, yet not to despair. Pursued yet not forsaken, struck down yet not destroyed. Always carrying in the body the putting to death of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10). Verse ten may cause some confusion for some. However, it’s important, so feel free to get in touch. Answers are an email or phone call away.

“The steps of good people are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in their ways. Thought they fall, they shall not be utterly cast down. For, the LORD upholds them with his hand.” (cp. Psalms 37:23-24).

purposeful life

“A holy life will produce the deepest impressions. Light houses blow no horns, they only shine. To fear is to have more faith in your antagonist then in Christ. I look upon this world and see a wrecked vessel. God has given me a lifeboat and said, ‘Moody save as many as you can.’ The object of the Bible is not to tell how good men are, but how bad men become good,'” D.L. Moody.

The aforementioned is all about lives worth living. This Padre has long concluded that the only life worth living is the life patterned after the above.

When people are young, most don’t think about death. It’s all about the varied tinsels of this world. For most of them that’s what the chase is all about. Then they find themselves aged knowing that death is closing in on them. So most conclude that’s nature’s way. Taking consolation by concluding that’s the way its always been. One generation expires and another is born.

And so this Padre often wonders why me Jesus. That’s not my world. I take solace in the following. Jesus teach me to number my days that I might gain a heart of wisdom. And wisdom has taught me the following. Since my days are determined and the number of my months are with Jesus. And He has determined that I will not exceed them. Consoled by the following. But as for me, I know my Redeemer lives. In the end, He will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh. whom I, even, I will see on my side. My eyes will see, not as a stranger. My heart is consumed within me. (cp. Psalms 90:12; Job 14:5; Job 19: 25-27).

In conclusion as an infant child I had frequent angelic appearances. For some reason those encounters didn’t frighten, It was through those experiences that I became aware that I was to do something for God.

Raised in a church steeped in rituals that were meaningless to me. So through parental demands, I completed all the catechisms necessary to become a member in acceptable standing in the Lutheran/Catholic church.

But before that preschool age, I was obsessed with my mothers Bible. Turning its pages looking at the pictures. She always took it from me and hid it, but I’d find it, and the experience was relived. As a new born, I remember being held in my mothers arm, as a priest baptized me into God’s grace and of that of the church.

For reasons very mysterious to me, and through most usual circumstance at nineteen years of age, I saw myself, as a hopeless sinner. Confessing my sins, I accepted Jesus Christ, as my Redeemer Savior. Accomplished through His shed blood on the cross of Calvary. And later, His resurrection from death having a glorified body. To His glorious ascension to be with the Father.

And when times are tough for me, I take great consolation knowing I also will have a glorified body like His. Through one of two ways, as one of many raised from among the dead, as Jesus returns. Or, still alive when He returns to meet Him in sky.

During which time whatever horrors have inflicted planted earth they’ll be minuscule compared to the horrors people will experience during this period.

I still have those angelic experiences. Have had two this year that I’m aware of. And others that past my awareness, and then suddenly I realize that was a supernatural experience. It’s referenced in Psalms 91:11-12, “He will give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up with their hands lest you dash your foot against a stone.

lock and load

“If other people do not understand our behavior-so what? Their request that we must only do what they understand is an attempted dictate to us. If this being “asocial” or “irrational in their eyes, so be it.

Mostly they resent our freedom and our courage to be ourselves. We owe nobody an explanation or an accounting, as long, as our actions do not hurt or infringe on them. How many lives have been ruined by the need to “explain,” which usually implies that the explanation “understood,” i.e. approved.

Let your deeds be judged, and from your deeds, your real intentions, but know that a free person owes an explanation only to himself-to his reason and his conscience-and to the few who may have a justified claim for an explanation,” Erich Fromm, The Art of being.

Erich Fromm was German Jew, who fled the Nazi regime and settled in the United States. He was a social psychologist, psychologist humanist philosopher and democratic socialist. Accomplished authored of books. With a university doctorate degree.

Note a Christo perspective: “A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but deceit in it crushes the spirit.” “They who are slow to anger are better than the mighty. And they who rule their spirits than they who take a city. (cp. Proverbs 15:5; Proverbs 16:32).

walk through memory lane

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a human face-forever!” George Orwell.

“Capitalism and the wage system must be must be abolished. They are twin monsters which are eating up the life of the world. In place of them, we need a system which will hold in check men’s economic injustice. That allows some to be rich in idleness while others are poor in spite of unremitting labor,” George Russel, “Capitalism and the Wage System.

From COVID-19, we’ve learned many things. It’s here to stay, as the biblical forerunner, ‘The beginning of sorrows,’ Matthew 24:8

Real economics: Thousands lost their jobs and with them their employment health insurance. Which happens to be very inadequate when medical needs strike. Because of their high deductibles and co-payments. A major illness can quickly eradicate the plans limited benefits. Leaving individuals and families with insurmountable debt equaling bankruptcy. With creditors hounding debtors for money sometimes using very provocative tactics. Resulting in a lifetime of sorrows which no American should have to endure.

Lesson learned: Americans need a Sen. Bernie Sanders style government sponsored health insurance. Which will not occur through a second trump administration. And most likely won’t happen with a Biden administration. Unless he picks a Stacy Abrams as his V.P.

Bury the capitalists arguments about socialism as the forerunner to communism. It’s all about equality. After all the idle rich have it, so why shouldn’t laboring workers stuck with unremitting labor enjoy the same equality.

Answer: Because the capitalistic system sees laboring Americans as commodities for production of goods and services. And when they are no longer productive furlough them. The best way to turn the tables on the greedy, at the expense of laboring Americans is through unionization of the work force. Of course capitalist, argue that also equals socialism which is another step  towards communism.

Working Americans know better. Because we all know, that Republicans are the very dictators, that are responsible for inequality of all kinds.

So, what side of the fence does Jesus represent?

Jesus picturesquely declared that helpful behaviors in themselves define socialism. Accomplished through the illustrative ways a Samaritan.

Telling us that a certain man journeyed and fell among capitalistic Republicans, who abused him and beat him. Leaving him half dead. A true Trumper saw him and crossed to the other side of the street. A Trump appointed federal judge did the same.

But a socialist Samaritan passed by, and acted compassionately. He bandaged his wounds, and provided transportation to a hotel. There he took care of him, and the next day, as he was departing he paid the hotel clerk. Saying to him, “Take care of him, and whatever you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.”

So Jesus asked, “Which of the three was a neighbor to him who fell among thieves? Someone answered, “The socialist, who acted mercifully.” Jesus responded, “Go and do likewise!” (cp. Luke 10:30-34).

human like programmed machines

“As a species, we are very poor at programming. Our brains are built to understand other humans, not computers. We’re terrible at forcing our minds into precise modes of thought needed to interact with computers, and we consistently make errors when we try. That’s why computer science and programming degrees take much time and dedication to acquire. We are literally learning how to speak to an alien mind, of a kind that has not existed on earth until very recently,” Stuart Armstrong.

Perhaps the genius of AI is a machine John saw emerging from among the people. Programmed by the biblical anti-Christ. Described as having ten horns and seven heads. On his horns were ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. (cp. Revelation 13:1). With the ten horns, and seven heads, picturesque of universal acceptance. Powered through superior intelligence. And on those seven heads obliteration of any devoted allegiance to Jesus Christ. An evident trait emerging today which would serve as the ultimate blasphemous conclusion.

And finally this machine would have a programmed life of its own. Because this robotic machine having very human traits will have programmed power to kill everyone who does not obey and worship the anti-Christ. Human commerce of any kind will be impossible. Without a chip of allegiance planted either in their right hand or in their foreheads. How do we know that this the ultimate computer is the intellectual genius of a humanoid. We are told to calculate the number 666 because that is his programmed code. (cp. Revelation 13:15-18).

adventures of life

“The future is going to be wonderful, if we don’t get whacked by the existential risks,” Stuart Armstrong.

In response: “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man,” George Bernard Shaw.

Reasonableness  of attitude causes some to act quickly without considering the risks which could be successful or not. While the unreasonable person prefers careful evaluation of the situation which represents the prudent path for success.

This biblical antidote settles the contrasts of being whacked or striving to be reasonable or unreasonable. “What king, as he goes to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an envoy, and asks for conditions for peace.” (cp. Luke 14:31-32).

AI & its Luciferian connection

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will eventually be able to predict any move we make, and could spend a lot of effort manipulating those who have control over it,” Stuart Armstrong.

The struggle to be ultimately decided is in whose honor will it exalt. The fore thoughts of earthlings under the persuasive dominance of Lucifer? Or through the illumination of the redeemed through the shed blood of Jesus?

Because: “There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly differs from that of the earthly.” (cp. 1 Corinthians 15:40).

The Beast a programmed Luciferian entity. “It was given to him to give breath to it, the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as wouldn’t worship the beast be killed.” (cp. Revelation 13:15).

Our earth for now is the play ground of Lucifer. Who has avowed to overturn his expulsion from heaven. Capturing the occupants of earth, as his play things and then the heavens. (cp. Isaiah 14:12-14).

We Christos it seems lag behind our creator when it comes to times of our time. “The secret things belong to the LORD our God; but the things that are revealed belong to us and our children forever, that we may do all the work of His ways.” (cp. Deuteronomy 29:29).

Brand new paradigm’s of understanding are evolving to combat Luciferian tactics. AI can be also be used to bring about the exaltation of heavens and the earth from the Creators perspective.

money friendship & sacrifice

“Be careful who call your friends. I’d rather have four quarters than on hundred pennies,” Al Capone.

No one ever experienced that more fully than Jesus. Then one of the twelve called Judas Iscariot went to the chief priest and said, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?” And, they gave him thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought how he might betray Jesus. (cp. Matthew 26:14-16).

Then one of His most trusted confidants betrayed Him not once but three times. A certain woman seeing Peter by the fire looked at him intently and said, “That man was also with Him.” But Peter replied saying, “Woman I do not know Him.”

And after a little while another saw him and said, “You also are one of them!” But Peter said, “I am Not!” Then after about an hour had passed, another with certainty declared, “Absolutely, that fellow was also with Him, for he is a Galilean!” But Peter angrily replied, “Man I do not understand what you are saying!”

Immediately while Peter was still speaking a rooster crowed. And Jesus turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the words of Jesus, how he had said, “Before the rooster, you will deny Me three times.” (cp. Luke 22:56-61).

“In the end it’s not money or friendship that counts. It’s integrity. Jesus was betrayed twice by those within His inner circle. One for money and the other self perseverance.

Integrity this how it plays out. David, Jesus and many others reaped its rewards.”By this I know that You are well pleased with me because my enemy does not triumph over me. As for me, You hold me in my integrity, and have set me before Your face forever.” (cp. Psalms 41:11-12).

Integrity is the force that brings people to step forward and do the seemingly impossible. For Jesus it unfolded as follows, “Insomuch then, as the children have partaken of flesh and blood. He Himself likewise shared in the same. That through death He might destroy him who had the power of death. That is the devil.” (cp. Hebrews 2:14).

And many others followed and the stream will even after this historic age ends. With earthlings moving into the next era of time. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives even to their death.” (cp. Revelation 12:11).

wisdom for the ages

“One would go mad if one took the Bible seriously, but to take it seriously one must already be mad!” Allister Crowley.

Blessed are all who walk not in the counsel of ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But their delight is in the ways of the LORD, and in His ways they consider day and night. They shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. That brings forth its fruit in its season. And whose leaf also shall not wither, and what ever they do shall prosper. (cp. Psalms 1:1-3).

Keep in mind in its season. It’s not instantaneously. Substantial growth in deciphering applicable scriptures is necessary.

We live in the age of grace which is much different from all other historical periods. Like those that preceded our age it to will end.

Avoiding selected entanglements with the ways of our 21st century, which are contrary to biblical directives.

Contrary to the Crowley’s of the world madness dwells with those who deny the reality of God. That reality is sustained by the historical record, and equally, and perhaps more important from personal experience.

awareness its depth

“The dog is the most faithful of animals and would be much esteemed were it not so common. Our Lord God has made His greatest gifts the commonest,” Martin Luther.

What in the world is Martin referring to? Could it be this? For certain, yes! But it’s just a glimpse of His greatest gifts.

But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

Likewise the Spirit also helps with our weaknesses. For we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession with expressions that can not be understood.

Now He who searches the hearts knows the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

And we know all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to the will of God. (cp. Romans 8:25-28).

when smart means stupid

Stephen W. Hawking was a theoretical physicist employed by the University of Cambridge, as director of Cosmology. Hawking at age 21 was diagnosed with an extremely debilitating disease that usually claims is victims life within four years. Yet Hawking’s managed to survive 55 more years. Miracle of miracles not a chance. Wealth, fame, and around the clock care must be part of the equation. But in the end, death claimed its prey. And now he’s in a place where he’s very conscience and most uncomfortable, and no doubt wanting to send the same message. (cp. Luke 16:19-31).

During his lifetime he ridiculed as ridiculous all notions of a supreme being. “Theology is unnecessary! I believe the simplest explanation is that there is no God. No one created the universe, and no one directs our fate. It just happened! There was no time until the Big Bang. This leads to a profound realization that there probably is no heaven, and no life after death. There is a fundamental difference between religion which is based on authority, and science which is based upon observation and reason,” Stephen W. Hawking.

There are many scriptures available to refute Hawking’s pathetic declarations. For now this will suffice with the most persuasive to follow. “For since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.” (cp. Romans 8:20).

“Insomuch then, as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same. That through death He might destroy him, who had the power of death, that is, the devil.” (cp. Hebrews 2:14).

But the most refutable refutable comes from personal experience. Which gives truth to the aforementioned scriptures. “Therefore, if any one is in Christ, they become new creations; old things pass away, and all things become new.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:17).

C.S. Lewis

“Image yourself living in a house. Suddenly, God Himself arrives and launches a rebuilding project. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is cleaning the drains, and stopping the leaks on the roof and so on. You know that those jobs needed to be done. So you are not surprised. Then He starts knocking down walls containing time treasured memories. To you that doesn’t make any sense. What in the world is He up to?

The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you valued so much. Creating a new wing here and there. With appropriate new flooring. Constructing magnificent towers overlooking a sprawling courtyard. It’s a palace grandeur thought you. Correct said He, “I intend dwell therein Myself,” C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity.

“What!” ‘Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have of God, and you are not your own. You were bought with a price; therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.'” (cp. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

truisms

“No one can construct for you the bridge upon which precisely you must cross the stream of life, no one but you yourself. Because that which does not kill us makes us stronger. sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed. The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die, as well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions, they cease to be minds. The surest way to corrupt youth is to instruct them to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently,” Friedrich Nietzsche.

Metaphorically, Jesus tied it altogether this way, “Enter by the narrow gate, for wide is the path and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and their are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the hate, and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few find it.” (cp. Matthew 7:13-14).

value survival

“Friendship is unnecessary like philosophy, like art, like so many other things. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which gives value to survival,” C.S. Lewis.

The real art of Lewis’s short ditty finds reality as follows. Love suffers long and is unselfish thus it is the value for survival. It’s is the persons good at all costs for others, who may, or may not be known by their benefactor. It’s part of what made America great. But today its a fast disappearing collections of attributes within the American or global populace.

But it just might be making a comeback, as we witness the self sacrifice of so many people. With no other purpose than the others persons good. As we war against COVID-19. Certainly much goodness, suffering and sacrifice will give rise for better tomorrow’s.
