Hysteria Full Stop; Reverse Course

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again nothing the Chinese communist government says can be trusted and there is still a possibility this was a weapon grade virus plan gone amuck, thus all the Main Stream Media cover stories mainly projected by the Communist Chinese government and their partner in crime the MSM always out to cover the asses of all the crooked US politicians and corporations that have sold America out and have been lining their pockets with billions!  But, in truth to fact currently as I also stated previously this is all being driven as a propaganda instrument to control the masses and also hurt President Trump along with his administration.  In this regard it’s “the same old same old” or “same shit different day” of the MSM and Dem party attempting to weaponize anything, from accusations to total hearsay and Schiff like imaginary narratives, attempting to create reality out of fantasy to use against their adversaries.

Professor Bishara docu

This highly regarded Virologist in Israel, Professor Jihad Bishara, director of the Infectious Disease Unit at Petah Tikva’s Beilinson Hospital, has stated that this Wuhan Virus or COVID-19 is not as bad as the common flu which is much more highly adaptable and intelligent than this current one that has the world going into lockdown mode, which is way over the top as a preventative measure.   Remember, the Dems live and act like heathen self-serving godless people so with hardly any conscience to speak of they have no qualms with generating panic or hysteria if it will enhance their own bottom line which is always a corrupted one!  People who become pathological liars do so because they have told so many lies they must continue to lie in order to cover the fact of their previous lies and not be found out.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!” (Sir Walter Scott, 1808).

Here are a few highlights of what the Professor had to say to The Times of Israel. 

“I’ve been in this business for 30 years,” Bishara said in a Channel 12 interview. “I’ve been through MERS, SARS, Ebola, the first Gulf war and the second, and I don’t recall anything like this. There’s unnecessary, exaggerated panic. We have to calm people down.”

“People think this virus is going to attack them all, and then they’re all going to die,’ says Prof. Jihad Bishara. ‘Not at all. In fact, most of those infected won’t even know it”

“People are thinking that there’s a kind of virus, it’s in the air, it’s going to attack every one of us, and whoever is attacked is going to die,” he said.

“That’s not the way it is at all. It’s not in the air. Not everyone [who is infected] dies; most of them will get better and won’t even know they were sick, or will have a bit of mucus.”

“But in Israel and around the world, “everybody is whipping everybody else up into panic — the leaders, via the media, and the wider public — who then in turn start to stress out the leaders. We’ve entered some kind of vicious cycle.”

“He urged the public to internalize that “we’re talking about a virus that is not airborne. Infection is via droplet transmission… Only if you are close to someone who has the virus, and you get the saliva when he sneezes or coughs, can you get ill.  And if you don’t then maintain personal hygiene,” primarily by washing hands.”

“He said the virus did not appear to be “too intelligent” — unlike flu, “which is very intelligent, it changes, adapts, and it infects people via their airway passages.”

“Bishara said some of the harsh steps taken in Israel — which has essentially closed its borders, limited gatherings to no more than 10 people, closed all educational facilities, and shut down malls, restaurants and places of entertainment and culture — were motivated by the leaders’ acknowledged awareness that the Israeli health system will buckle under any further strain.”

“People can die from the coronavirus just like people die every year from the flu and other respiratory illnesses but that doesn’t mean everyone who gets it will die. As a matter of fact, most people will recover and move on with their lives just fine.”

“The mass panic and shutting down of society is truly way over done. It boggles the mind.”

Hopefully, some if not all of this information I’ve provided in this article, has been helpful at least in a small way, in alleviating much of the fear and hysteria that many if not all of you have either experienced firsthand or are observing in others around you!  God Bless.

P.S.  A caveat to all of this is America MUST stop being dependent on Chinese manufacturing or on that “government for anything” as they can never be trusted; and, let’s start doing our own here in the United States; as we were once the top manufacturing engine bar none, in the world, and there is no reason we can’t regain a huge portion of that production again., while doing for our own and providing many good permanent career jobs!  Our President Trump is moving full steam ahead to do just that for the American people!  Perhaps, in the final analysis of this entire virus scare it will have served to give America the Wake-Up Call it sorely needed!

“Steady and True”

“seeking His will”

Steady and true is our course!  If our focus is truly upon the Lord, then our destination is a certainty that nothing can change!  One day at a time seeking His will we move closer to Him.

“For the Spirit that God has given us does not make us timid; instead, his Spirit fills us with power, love, and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7. 

Thank you brothers and sisters in Christ, for your faithful efforts in serving our Lord!

Last Chance to Wake-up?

“Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”

9 11 9

Another blogger wrote a very nice piece about how Salvation is by faith not fear which was in reference to the COVID-19 scare sweeping the globe.  This article went on to explain how past catastrophes have come and gone and each time there  were those that while all the turmoil or uncertainty was in play people showed up at church that hadn’t in a long while or maybe never, then later when the danger was gone they slipped right back into their usual sinful nature.  It spoke about how people seek comfort and others to quell their fear and consternation.  I want to allow you to read a comment I made to another blog last night which touched on this same concern and how I was seeing too much lip service as usual and the same old routine of almost pretend we care.  More like when there was a snowstorm when we were kids and we got to stay home, so then we were on the phone with our friends and having a bit of fun instead of doing our school work at home like we should.  Today this article mentioned the attack of America on 9/11/2001 just as I had mentioned it last night in this following comment, which I refer to today’s article.  “I left a comment on a NYC resident’s blog where it was a consoling sort of love-in as I saw it and I know how people are just like this blog you presented here says!  And quite interesting how it specifically referred to the attack on America on 9/11/2001 by outright evil satanic Jihadists!”

My comment to the blog last night follows:

You sound like you’re getting on the page I’ve been ranting about for a while!  Perhaps you and millions of others are ready to re-calibrate and focus on the fact that the human race has gotten too big for its britches as the old saying goes and feel too high and mighty or are living day to day like machines that don’t think so good, even though they are under the deluded false impression that they have the world by the, excuse the expression, by the balls!  I’ve been saying this in many of my blogs too, how people are way too self-serving and arrogant and they went beyond ignoring God, but they instead decided to play God, be their own world unto themselves and figure they can do as they damn well please, and butt out everybody, even God!  Don’t anyone take me wrong here, I can see why people got this way in our modern materialistic high tech world of convenience, being lulled into an almost zombie like pace and style of living; but we’ve had serious wake up calls before (9/11) and people don’t ever seem to learn or get their shit wired and make up their minds that they better live on the straight and narrow from now on.

They just slip back into their old habits as soon as the dust settles and the dark cloud passes us by!  I’m sorry to say, but I think it’s going to take a lot more than a COVID-19 scare to shake the “bejesus” out of enough people to come clean and fess up!  Look at our National Seat of Power with people like, Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Feinstein, Maxine the Crazy Machine and so many others that are so corrupted and dirty there is no going back now, they are going to die wicked and greedy pigs!  Sorry, I hate to be morbid under such sad conditions but I may cool off and get back to seeing the light shining through, not the clouds, but though “human consciences” hopefully soon and have wonderful things to report to anyone who will listen.

9 11 10

I do think there are still so many people that want to do the right thing and make a good world that is in tune with what Jesus told us to do when he was here.  But, we have way too many bad people running things and that has to stop I think before enough substantive change can occur!  Sorry, people are ruining this world, so we better pray harder than ever to be delivered from this madness, especially for the sake of all the innocent kids and babies!  I hope it is going to change for the better, I do!

God Bless!

I want to add some additional thoughts about this fear factor and related ideas.

Now to this point about fear!  I believe everyone should have a healthy dose of fear as we are all fallen and our souls are a glimmer away from eternal damnation if not for the Lamb of God who took away sin on the cross at Calvary, for those who will abide in Him!  But, I think some people get the idea it’s not hard at all Jesus did us all a favor and took care of all the dirty details of our transgressing nature, “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak,” and our souls that have at least original sin and I dare say most of us are nothing but dirty rags, without Jesus and His salvation, we’re not even worthy to be near Holy God Almighty let alone look at Him!  No as in Holy Scripture it tells us clearly:

“Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12

Not fearing the things of this world is fine but fear of God is wise as it humbles us to make certain we know we aren’t worthy in the slightest and we are not home free until we are past the pearly gates so there is no slacking or doing as we damn well please then just when it’s time to face death we suddenly can say hey I’m good I like Jesus and always did!

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” Romans 3:10

“If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” 1 John 1:8

I can safely say I believe that nobody on this earth does enough to hold themselves up as a prize to God, only Jesus could claim victory over all things seen and unseen.  Are we worthy of praise for some of the things we have done for others or in the name of Jesus, surely some of us can rest assured of that, but we can also be certain that we carry sin and guilt that will not go away and we will not be free of until we are in heaven with God the Father through and by the forgiveness of our transgressions only by Jesus Christ Himself, and that is why we need to be concerned to a great degree if we don’t call it outright fear, we are all in jeopardy and are in a most tumultuous world these days full of vanity and sin in so many basic things we participate in which serve the beast or the prince of this world and not our heavenly Father.   Can we judge ourselves, of course not, we are mere humans that die, but the one who can is who we should fear because we don’t know whether we are truly worthy until He the Lord our God tells us so!

“I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” Jeremiah 17:10

What we want to hear from our Lord when we stand before him is simply this:  “Well done, good and faithful servant!” Matthew 25:23.

Now when people try to fool God they lose.   If this COVID-19 is a wake-up call I feel it is potentially a last chance, then again maybe not, but it very well could be and that is how the world should look at it as a last opportunity to come clean, because He sees how evil this world has become and the good is more and more suppressed each year!   Abortions by the millions each year alone is a mockery and abomination that transgresses God horribly, so we are in a deep hole full of manure and as my dad used to tell me as a kid when I got wise-ass or a chip on my shoulder; “don’t try to bullshit me.”  He would go on to say, “if you did wrong you best admit it and take the consequences, so you can learn from it and not do it again.”  My dad meant business and that taught me and tells me now how God is fed up with us here on earth and things better start going in the right direction with so many leaders and peoples, because if not all hell will break loose, because God may allow His wrath to pour out by perhaps allowing evil to prevail sooner rather than later, via-a-vis the antichrist, and that is Scriptural obviously, but still much can be avoided if people will stop and turn to HIM so that many more souls will be saved!  Then on bent knee in humble supplication ask for His mercy and help; to only do His will.

I see in this world today how so many opportunities have been given to us to allow the human race to come together with forthrightness and honorable truth that was given to us from God, but all they do is attack one another, even if it is only mind or cyber space attacking it’s all wrong!

Keep praying and changing for the better!

God Does Work in Mysterious Ways

“awakening to God’s truth and will” unfolding in our lives.

GOD IS SO PATIENT WITH HIS PLAN AND WE HIS CHILDREN!  I thought how I would think it’s time for this freak show to end and I really felt that way until yesterday, and only because God allowed me to get a leg up on knowing all is not lost and He is totally in control of how this will all end-up and that isn’t my worry at all; but my concern is so very basic and simple.  A fellow blogger had responded to my no sugar coating commentary which was her typical gentle way of putting things in perspective, in order to move forward and make some kind of progress.  I want to chronicle here with some of my commentary then a few of her ideas along with another Christian’s idea from statements that all came into play when I took a walk with my dog yesterday, Thursday 3/12/2020.

Well here I am with another personal chronicle which ultimately will demonstrate once again that I’ve had some dots connecting around me.  Actually there are plenty of them connecting all of the time in all of our lives but most are happening like clockwork as routine as the sun rising and setting each day.  But, then there’s the myriad of  infinite  possibilities unfolding that we can neither truly fathom let alone be aware of at any given moment or even second and portions of one of those, down to the tiniest fraction that one can be divided before we are left with zero sections of pie left in the dish.  But, “God in His Mysterious Ways” can and does intercede sometimes in ever so slight and subtle ways, or as blatantly as a bucket of cold ice water in our faces.  My initial point though is to make sure not to get anyone agitated wondering what are you going on about this time Lawrence, just in case someone is in a hurry now, as most people usually are, too much so for their own good.  So, the last thing I need anyone to do is say I really have too much to do and if you’re going to blah, blah, blah then count me out!  Well, all I can say to that is don’t be hasty, and as most of us were told as children “haste makes waste;” so nobody should go rushing off half-cocked to count themselves out before they have all of the preliminary facts when indeed anybody may just be the singularly most important person that should be counted in on this excursion, though it may be a bit zig-zaggy, and I don’t mean go roll another joint so someone can try to escape this torment of giving me their undivided attention for a span of time, hopefully such a person will put those away, lol. God knows many have wasted more time online than they will ever want to admit, while still others have just gotten wasted period; so this isn’t going to “break the bank” by any means!

Now COVID-19 has already become a household term and hopefully not for the worst reason in your case, but if you or anyone you know is unfortunate enough to have it I do pray that it will disappear as quickly as it made its appearance in your life. Outside of that my reason for bringing that up was because about the same time it came into the headlines, so too was all of the usual crazy off the wall politics and typical MSM sensationalizing crap that really gets me fuming and so disgusted with the mess people have made of this world, and then even on top of that many people I can’t bear to think about them let alone look at their sorry pusses on the TV or internet!

But, now I’ll drive my point home regarding my infuriation lately with something you may have already read on my previous blog article the day before yesterday, but I do this not to drive you off or make myself come across like one of those  horridly annoying human beings we see way too much in the media repeating themselves with their same old shtick, say for example the putrid Chuck Todd of Meet the Press, and who actually have a lot to do with how our lives may go depending on how they perform the tasks at hand for their  puppet masters, and if they have a real conscience with integrity being first and foremost; but as you know that’s a tall order to fill with the likes of the tools or trolls running around calling themselves our betters in politics and media, and many even being charged with the duties of public office!

So, before I speak to the remarkably calming and spiritually refreshing occurrence that happened on Thursday when I was out hiking with my dog, I’ll just use a few excerpts from my previous writing yesterday interlaced with some other commentary to attempt to chronicle the progression of dots and the difficulties leading up to this Epiphany.

Things just seem to go from bad to worse with the human race each passing week; especially if we stay plugged into the MSM, New World Order “media appendage,” or propaganda arm for the ruling class, elite and some of the most wicked despots on the planet, AKA, Killery, Soros, Obozo and even sympathizers for Evil Iran, after the terrorist mastermind Qassem Soleiman was taken out in the “theater of terrorism war planning!” It makes me want to puke when I see the leftist, wicked, perverted minded Dems and MSM catering to such brutal evil monsters and the regimes they are part of namely Iran’s mullahs running that country based on a totally false, fabricated, political ideology masquerading as a religion of Islam, but yet many of these same people in the millions continue to push the “kill the babies agendas” that’s become a cottage industry and has total diabolical roots and purpose here on earth!   And yet we hear Pelosi’s rant this week that she and her party of “lost souls” want to save lives from COVID-19, but she has to have more cash to kill babies?   The New York Times sewer publication and most MSM acted like they lost their great hero and mentor; a most evil, demented devil of terror when Soleiman was taken out.  OK, so you most assuredly get my message how upset I’ve been and at whom generally speaking.  Then something happened when I focused more on prayer and seeking insight from our God via the Holy Spirit.  I know for me much of my dot connecting happens with walks or hikes, sometimes very long ones, but they are always worth it not just for the obvious reasons but because I’ve had actual revelation come my way.  This was the case again on “Thursday’s Hike.”   Because when on this hike there came a juncture or “crossroads” if you will, right along the path, where I was to encounter a woman and her granddaughter, a newly born child of God only 9 months of age, and some of what I’m about to tell you was actually some text I wrote to another fellow blogger just previous to the hike and after it, that all tied together  with the previous conversation about depressing worldly affairs and so many people going against God these days; being antichrist!

The way the hike time got set and the whole progressive excursion had to unfold, too many dots that had to line up exactly in order for this to have happened and one that I can point out now that was so obvious, was while on the hike with my dog, a hawk suddenly appeared in a tall tree a couple of  hundred feet ahead of us and just when I brought my eyes into alignment with it, that bird suddenly flew off in a “particular direction,” and although there were a few directions we could head off into, I had in a fleeting fraction of a moment thought about hiking to a “particular destination” which is in the same direction that the hawk flew, that is along that path; where we could stop to rest, then back track!  And so, that was the cue, we did just that and got to our resting spot, and after relaxing for a time headed back.  When we got back to the open area this woman was coming toward us pushing a baby stroller from the opposite direction and we were going to run into each other with not a minute to spare one way or the other, because both of us it turns out were going to depart away from our potential encounter ahead or that encounter point; crossroad!  That was a God Send and meant to bring focus upon what a fellow Christian blogger had mentioned the night before when I had complained about all the turmoil in the world; on what the most important factors are to keep in mind when in battle, which is what we all are in just like this movie I told her about that I love, the old classic “Heaven Knows Mr. Allison,” because God speaks to him at a “critical juncture” or “convergence” point, while he is with a Catholic Nun marooned on a Japanese occupied island in the Pacific during WWII; which ultimately leads to this Marine, a good heartened soul of a man saving many troops lives, and I told her that she and her husband will see what I mean and love it when they watch that movie, which also has a lot to do with today’s message.

heaven knows mr alison docu.docx

These are literal examples of God at work in our midst helping us along where need be or when it really is very important or vital to accomplish His will, especially in helping others who we can by being His instruments, because in the final analysis His will is going to be done, no two ways about it, not anything or anybody else’s, that is what this Christian blogger, a Catholic, helped me to focus on with her telling me how to try focusing on prayer and doing good, even in the midst of so much turmoil; and by the way, that is what the Marine does in battle, the real deal; but I sometimes tend to react too emotionally.  What she was saying is like what my dad always told me to do in a tough situation, “remain cool, calm and collected!”  Now here I should mention that for this other blogger and myself to be having conversation about some serious challenges that came our way in life which took a lot of faith and prayer to overcome, this too was part of the hike journey leading to a truer “awakening to God’s truth and will” unfolding in our lives. As I had tried to explain my dilemma to her why I was so distraught but, Scripture does tell us plainly that in “End Times” this world will be that bad, so bad in fact that it won’t seem like there is any relief!  Now that’s a big problem to tackle for all of mankind, if only “all the corrupt politicians would GO AWAY,” I figure!  If we aren’t in “End Times” yet, we sure as hell are close!  Of course I must temper this train of thought with the reality of how much, much worse so many people are having it than me, how there are those who suffer incomprehensible pain or sorrow; so that is the reality check needed to put it all in proper perspective.  I must thank God for all of the abundance of gifts He gives to me each moment of every day!  Be humble is the key.

Already out of all this conversation and hiking on these paths I see how we are gifted even in spite of any unhappy events that had hurt my fellow blogger in her past that she mentioned, just like some similar things happened to me I can see this as a good metaphor, the “Flight of the Phoenix” rising up out of the ashes, as in the sense of being very down trodden and in an injured vulnerable position, to be seeing nothing but defeat and loss; but look what happened by the miraculous loving power of our Lord Jesus Christ!  He reached into her heart through her faith and healed it, blessing her with strength of character and intuitive insights that she would never have achieved otherwise!  Same with me in a way; as over the last 15 years I could say evil and nefarious deeds were directed at me to punish and torment my heart and take away the joy and happy go lucky kid that was always there but now though I felt sorry for myself at moments or angry and disappointed, I never allowed that to overwhelm me because of “my faith in Jesus” that my parents and grandparents instilled in me; and of course God when He planned me in His infinite wisdom, “The Master Potter,designed me to be who He needed me to be so I could grow to be who I am now, in spite of those destructive attacks upon my life and heart, and to ultimately do His will serving Him alone, in order to help fulfill His plan!  I too like my blogger friend sister in Christ wouldn’t go back if I could and get an easier path to avoid the hardships and pain because I know now, and Jesus of course does, that I’m better off because of my not giving up or trying to fight fire with fire!

heaven church lg print

Discernment she had mentioned to me in her comment is so vital, and that is the key, I had to carefully learn my hard lessons and discern as I could with Jesus leading the way, but learning how to do it so much better than ever before, to be receptive and listen to Him closely from my inner most heart!  My mom to me has always been a beautiful woman and not perfect by any means but not a disaster like some friends I had growing up whose parents with serious alcohol or other disruptive, painful problems added to their burden of daily life.  As a kid I noticed my Mom was emotional and that took me time to learn how to understand her more as I grew up, but she had some difficulties growing up even like my friend did, and having many children is a hard thing to go through, but she was always attentive and loving to all of her children like a true Mother in my eyes, like the “Blessed Mother!”  My grandmothers along with my mom all used to tell me growing up, “when the kids get all messed up or in trouble out in public, they blame the mother, because it’s her task to teach them and guide them properly in all matters of behavior and civility, to have a conscience and proper respectful attitude; and of course always loving Jesus!”  Such good women I’ve had, OMG I want to cry thinking of them all, really fine women even like my friend!  “The best of the best!”  I know this is so true about Jesus, “He is always holding our right hand!”

But because, I had been so stirred up by the world events and even my own personal difficulties caused by other people; I needed to regain the proper perspective and focus!  God is so good in doing that for us just perfectly, if we will allow Him totally into our hearts to speak to us and lead us to paths of righteousness.  This verse came to mind after the encounter with the woman with her granddaughter, and upon reading a comment from my blogger friend.

“19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.”  Romans 12:19 NKJV

As I mentioned this other blogger and I having conversation prior to and after I met the woman and baby, I had some of the following to say to her and I attempt here to elaborate or add to what was said so I’m including partly what was in the conversation and what I’m seeing in all of this now.

But, returning to the encounter as I looked ahead and saw this woman with a baby stroller heading right toward us in a completely open and almost desolate area, in this part of a community, wide open spaces with several paths or roads to take, that I’ve often traveled through heading to my home, but this time I felt a definite certainty and purpose unfolding by just allowing those words we sometimes hear Christians saying; “Let go and let God,” actually was taking place as this was not by chance but only by God’s directing it for His ultimate purpose and of course to help us!  I have to ask are we willing servants and warriors ready to follow His will?

We know from my previous writings that on these long walks, with Jesus, at times some important dots get connected, don’t we!  I was thinking about your last comment and my lengthy reply and about the idea my father would stress to me about putting things in perspective.  On the walk today I came to this very wide open space area as I was making the loop back home when out in this area a lady with a stroller was heading right toward me and my dog.  We were virtually the only people around and the day being very comfy we slowed a moment to engage in a nice how do you do interlude.  The baby was her granddaughter of 9 months and this baby was so beautiful and bright eyed it was astounding to me!  It was so captivating to look into the babies most beautiful innocent eyes, truly into the soul of an innocent baby!

baby-185150_960_720

This baby wouldn’t take her eyes off of me as we spoke there for a while, and it turned out the lady grew up in the same neck of the woods as me and my siblings.  It also turns out that we had some family dots connecting as her father and grandfather had been in law enforcement and my father knew many of these same folks with some very close ties to them in his growing up and through business relations.  I still couldn’t get over how this baby kept staring at me so innocent and sweet with eyes from heaven and I almost want to cry now thinking how precious that child from God is; and this dawned on me, how like you said it’s what we focus our attention on that will matter from here on out to whatever comes, that’s all in God’s hands, but to that I say, these precious babies are in ours now and that is our first priority!  Boy, do I love little babies, even my mom used to say so when I was a teen and would give a bottle of milk to my youngest sibling or baby cousins, and they loved me too, it was easy to tell as I would make them laugh and smile so much when I would clown around making silly faces and different voices or tickle them on the cheek or chin, “COOCHIE, COOCHIE COO!”  We talked about the bad scene in politics me and this woman, not the baby, she kept trying to figure me out I  guess; and how so many things are out of whack, and this nice lady agreed how the media is so warped or biased; as I say “running the evil agenda.”  But, phooey on that, we need to use our noggins to put the pieces of the puzzle together and get the best picture we can then get to work doing what we can that’s helping those babies and all the innocent beautiful things that are still in abundance all around us and be receptive that way to do God’s will, that’s the ticket!  I know that after my mentioning this meeting to you in another comment you said you had a granddaughter who when a newborn of just one day looked into your eyes and seemed like she was saying hi to you, even making a sound, and this I see is similar to how it was when the baby I met looked at me, how she was talking to me through her eyes and her soul was connecting to mine, being so innocent and a new soul God put in this world!

heaven 21

This whole message of yours is turning out to be a kind of spiritual “manna from heaven” to me, because again I see how God’s Holy Spirit is literally handing us knowledge and insight!I thought she was trying to say: “Hi’ to me 🤗. She is 22 now, and training to be a nurse.” That was what you told me.  This makes me want to cry because now that you said this I must say that little baby today looking at my face so peaceful, calm and in a state of grace as she stared into my eyes, she was talking to me silently and the Holy Spirit was there between us making that possible to convey something beyond what I could see with my eyes, and to say that you will know what the reason is for a given thing happening even if it’s when you leave this life and go with God when all will be revealed. 👼  The Holy Spirit was there between us making that possible to convey something beyond what I could see with my eyes for sure, and the baby is so fresh and new from God who knew that child of His before it was in the womb as he made that baby the unique soul that it is, and it was meant to meet me there that day so we could make the connection, that was God’s will at work, and what it all means I can speculate in essence like you have extolled here about your first encounter with your granddaughter and she wanting to speak to you which led to her becoming an “angel of mercy” now all these years later!  I just recalled how my mother told me many times when I was a new born and before I could walk or talk as a baby,  “I was so quiet and had an air about me as I too stared at others intently.”  But, also like my father would tell me, “what was meant to be was meant to be and you may not know the reason why something happened now or even in your lifetime on this earth, but rest assured there is a reason and God will reveal it and you will know what it is when you should.”  He went on to say that, “you will know what the reason is for a given thing happening even if it’s when you leave this life and go with God when all will be revealed.

You had asked me what is a favorite scripture of mine just the previous evening to which I replied I have many favorites, but I’ll be thinking about this.  Now after this encounter with this nice woman and her grandchild this is what I’m thinking God wanted me to say right now, as it came immediately to my mind when I picture the baby I met today with her nice grandmother.  And, I know this is what God wants me to say because as you were aware I was troubled by some of these global events happening currently to the point of not sleeping well and the effect has been noticeable in my speech and thinking the last couple of days as I also see my enemies local and otherwise are still hating me and looking to hurt me further as they are influenced by evil without a doubt, but this is the TRUTH God says to focus on NOW!

“2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have [a]ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and the avenger. Psalm 8:2 New King James Version (NKJV)

I will say this my sister in Christ Jesus, I sense that God wanted that baby to encounter this man and hear him speaking while looking into his eyes to “witness for God like an angel,” and the same for me to see the awe and absolute beauty I beheld in that “most precious little innocent baby girl like a cherub from heaven” to be in that state now for a time, then as she grows up to carry that essence of God’s Holy Spirit working among us, because her work might very well be such a saving grace to others in the future perhaps like your granddaughter being “an angel of mercy” helping the needy and sick or infirm!  Something special was happening in that encounter today beyond my understanding it fully, that God directed; and something will materialism from it in the future!

And if this don’t beat all, yesterday you asked me if I had a favorite Scriptural verse and I had a flash of verse come to my mind which I believe was the appropriate one for me to say at that point, but said I would think about this idea further as well.  Then this morning I received a notification that a fellow blogger had just posted a verse which I say speaks directly to what you’ve been offering as your personal insight to my own sadness and anger about what I see happening on a global level with mankind.  Now I must share this verse here and thank you again for the connecting of such important dots in our daily lives! 😊  🙏 🙏

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:6-7 NASB

I add here one other that is at the top of my all-time favorite verses which my mother had a lot to do with it being so if not making sure it was my favorite!

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

I’m sure I should mention Psalm 23 makes me cry, it is so deep into my soul when I think of those words from God letting us know that nothing should be feared if we truly walk with the Lord our God in the Holy name of Jesus!  Amen.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

 

Like you my sister in Christ Jesus, I too am in continued unrelenting amazement as I read your words and actually began crying as I felt God’s presence and glory touching within my heart and soul, saying again just as in the walk and other times lately, “I Am here!”  I just absorbed those three words this second after typing them and felt the tears welling up so powerfully, these are never tears of sadness, but tears of joy and peace, knowing our Lord loves us, and He isn’t looking beyond us or ever going to forget us, “WE BELONG TO HIM!”  It is we children of God who lose sight and go astray from all that it is we need, and could ever dream of, like wanton foolish or even truly rebellious children, that allow themselves to become confused when the “WHOLE TRUTH” is right before them, as they only need to, “ask and the door will be opened,” He is always waiting on the other side for us to enter into our personal relationship knowing and loving Him by just opening our hearts to Him, so we may join Him in our inheritance, to be members of His glorious everlasting loving family, to be as one and loving each other beyond measure or words; for eternity!

God Himself has shown us so much in the last 24 to 36 hours that I see clearly that I should form a compilation of what transpired in order to serve Him in this acknowledgement not for me alone but for so many others who need to come back into the fold, to not be lost or scattered as we see happening all around in the world, that was what was so troubling to me lately and God said, He is on it, and wants me and others to be a part of the solution here on earth; while our work for Him isn’t completed yet.

Thank you Lord again so much for helping to open our inner sight to the TRUTH!

All Glory is Yours Jesus Christ our Lord, Savior and Redeemer.

Mass manipulation of the human race is here.  Italy as a case in point once a mecca of Christianity has become extremely secular and communist; could this be why the mimicking of Communist China with this viral outbreak!  Common sense, reason and above all faith in the higher power have escaped the masses as the ruling elite demigods control the populations with their powerful propaganda appendage MSM, manipulating the people to be prodded and poked to behave as they dictate; to just be good little sheeple or cattle.  Of course when these tactics fail or aren’t sending a strong enough message the ruling party can resort to police and even the military to beat the fools into submission if need be.

The last several decades have seen the explosion of technology bringing many creature comforts and pastimes to the masses which lulled everyone into trusting man and machine more than God, until it more recently got out of hand or took off in earnest with the “digital age” at a “fever” pitch which is now upon us, where everything is micromanaged, even down to what the individual thinks or will do and not do.  We’re rapidly heading toward becoming a race of societies banded together by one core element, Control.

Look around and see just how many freedoms or rights are being diminished or outright taken away, how even the right of an Unborn human being is nothing more than tissue to be disposed of and even being celebrated by many, in all countries, which are all in concert with the theme of the larger picture of Totalitarianism.

This COVID-19 is less of a problem than the common influenza viruses or others that wreak havoc on populations every year, but, this is all a dress rehearsal of what is to come as the noose will be tightened around all of our necks moving forward.  Strategies are being developed and implemented to bring us all to our knees as servants to the all-powerful and knowing State.  “WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND”

Jeremiah 17:5-13 English Standard Version (ESV)

Thus says the Lord:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
and makes flesh his strength,[a]
whose heart turns away from the Lord.
He is like a shrub in the desert,
and shall not see any good come.
He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness,
in an uninhabited salt land.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”

The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately sick;
who can understand it?
10 “I the Lord search the heart
and test the mind,[b]
to give every man according to his ways,
according to the fruit of his deeds.”

Seek no man but seek God who is in heaven!

Important Update:

After I published this Blog article today, I received a notification that a fellow blogger had just published an article about the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy so I immediately checked it out!  I found it to be a very helpful and realistic as well as accurate.  I read the comments and I was dismayed to see a comment from some woman who was dissing the USA and not really being helpful at all so I got into my “let her have it modality” and wrote out a comment with a few facts she needs to contemplate.  What follows is “my comment only” in its entirety which I’m hopeful will add some further dimension and clarity about a few vital points of great concern. I’m adding this additional text as one of the comments below.  Thank you for your interest!

Seek and You Will Find

“God doesn’t roll dice!” 

I found a fellow bloggers name listed today for the first time indicating he liked my blog and is now following it.  I in turn reviewed his blog and enjoyed his perspective on some topics of interest to me as well, but I immediately noticed a gap in his perception of our earthly reality.  My hope here is to help bridge that gap with added insight and revelation, because we all need our own personal epiphany before we depart this short earthly life.  I recognize that we humans may come from very different cultures and backgrounds that often give us different frames of reference by which we perceive the world in “varying degrees of difference” that can be similar or vastly different.  But again, my hope here is to express my inner most heart and what wisdom I may have acquired in my lifetime to help others to hopefully see the TRUTH, so they won’t “miss the boat” or “not see the forest for the trees!”  “This life is an unbelievable, awe inspiring amazing gift” that came from “absolute perfect eternal love” and this short opportunity or window to come to terms with some fundamental principles that we must not overlook should not be marginalized or wasted!  But rather, we should with a whole heartened intent ask “the why,” because there is an answer sitting in our proverbial faces to that ancient question!  And, that is why, I wrote this blog today, for this man or anyone who will listen.  God Bless You.

I see where you’re coming from.  I also see the deepest intrinsic value in every speck of existence as miraculous and having qualities that are not random or meaningless or having come into such balance and order by chance or random sequential events taking place at some special by happenstance moment, as I also don’t see how it all has always been as it is with no beginning or end, as we observe readily all is changing and disintegrating in this realm!  Scientists know for certain and have demonstrated the “Big Bang” theory, but so too persons like the great Albert Einstein who by far one of the most extraordinary minds to have even been here on earth, told fellow physicists when having a discussion about the millisecond prior to the “Big Bang;” when one of the scientists extrapolated with all of  his calculations that with enough “random events” occurring just before that “golden moment” when creation took place or the “Big Beginning,” as I call it, this scientist said these events would surely fall into the precise order required for that golden moment to take place.

Then Einstein said, “Ah, Yes my friend but you’re forgetting one thing, God doesn’t roll dice!”  You see he knew and could understand by his extraordinary insights or revelation into existence, his epiphany if you will; that a creating power that vast and intelligent would undoubtedly have to exist being deliberate and intentional in all of its actions by the sheer fact of knowing all things which would by default make “each action perfect and precisely what it was meant to be” or the only thing it can be; never a mistake!  My point to you and all followers here is that the mathematical probability that all of this unbelievable existence to have come into being by some unknown yet perfect event happening by chance, is basically mathematically impossible, especially when one looks at and examines closely the incredible intricacies of every bit of existence down to the atom to not see clearly that a vast intelligence is at work in all of this; which is far beyond our puny minds or almost insignificant meaningless opinions, when stacked up against what is really going on here!  You and I know basically nothing in comparison and to think otherwise is complete folly and I dare say stupidity on our parts if we are to think so highly of ourselves!  We only have what God has given to us and there is obviously a plan or imagination at work that will have the final say in everything here, no if’s and’s or but’s about it!  Rest assured you are part of God’s plan, but our biggest task, is to recognize that, and appreciate the opportunity sitting on our laps, while then giving due respect and love back to our Creator, because that was the only reason all of this began, was out of “His infinite love.”  We step outside of this plan or design attempting to make ourselves our own God, then we transgress the “OLD ONE,” as Einstein referred to him.  That would be quite asinine to do, don’t you think?

Einstein bust photo docu

Just this fact, that we can think as we attempt to comprehend and make these observations is obviously a miracle and gift from the “Divine Creator” of all things, which plainly tells us that we are meant to see, recognize and understand these fundamental facts, then to let our conscience and heart be our guide, which will lead us to Him in Love and Peace beyond measure, far beyond our present limited human comprehension.  As Holy Scriptures have told us, “Seek and You Will find.”

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8

 

Lord have mercy.  Amen.

The purest human heart that has ever existed

While I was writing my blog as a Lent Offering today I received a notice which turned out to actually be about a very nicely written article by a fellow Christian blogger about Lent Season, which helped to inspire me to focus my writing upon this subject with fervor and try my best to explain what my personal perception about Lent is, and making such an offering to our Father in heaven during this Lent Season.

Good advice here and words of wisdom.  This got me thinking about the difficulty of separating ourselves from sin especially those sinful little pleasures we grow so accustomed to throughout the years.  Such a huge challenge at times because why?  Well the basic truth is we are fallen and not in a pure state of grace or good enough as we are to be in the presence of absolute holiness which God is and we are not.  The good news is He created us in His image having an eternal spiritual nature within us to make us heirs, to become all we can be as members of His glorious eternal kingdom in Heaven. The gap between here and there is huge and impossible a chasm to cross on our own and another huge culprit in all of this is temptation which you helped me to think about right now during Lent!  My dad would always tell me as a teen and on into my mature years, that there is too much to be had out there and it doesn’t take much to get into trouble real fast if we don’t strengthen our faith continually.  And that is where you came in with this very nice blog which speaks to the directive or marching orders put before us, these orders or the edict is simple and clear; Will You Follow Me?  Good Lord knows I want to and have tried and failed often enough like all of us do, sometimes appearing to be so messed up that if we had tails we certainly would be chasing them!  But here is the good news, God made it so simple and guaranteed that we can be where He is in splendor and peace forever, if we as my mom always said, just keep trying our best because Jesus took all sin away and tossed it into hell where it belongs and He knows if we have sincerely tried our best or not.  The purest human heart that has ever existed, completely perfect and without any sin is pleading to us to follow and does all the pleading of each of our cases before our heavenly Father to forgive us for our transgressions or lack.  See that is the amazing thing God does through Jesus Christ He is searching out every heart to know it perfectly as to whether that heart belongs to Him or is running a scam or charade playing both ends against the middle, like having the best of both worlds if you will, to party it up for the short term appeasement this world can offer which the evil one uses continually against those of us who figure as far as heaven goes I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it, because Jesus is so loving and will cut me enough slack to get through the gate.  Many of the politicians we actually witness these days are a prime example of this folly and deception they play with grabbing all they can now while they cause nothing but ruin and misery around them.  It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Matthew 19:23 Any self-serving or becoming puffed up with one’s own interests and worldly power or pleasures is guilty of this transgression from God and will never reach His kingdom following that path to perdition and eternal damnation.  The polar opposite of this is what Jesus himself stated to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Luke 9:23)

I refer now to a faithful servant of Jesus who dedicated his life to serving God’s will on earth, Rev. Billy Graham.

Billy Graham post.jpg

“What did Jesus mean when He said we have to carry a cross? I’ve heard people talk about a problem they have and say it’s a cross they have to bear, but is this what Jesus meant?”

A:

“No, this isn’t what He meant—although it’s not necessarily wrong to refer to some problem we are having as a “cross” we must bear. In Jesus’ day, a cross was a symbol of suffering, and we all have trials and afflictions that may be very hard for us to bear—even with God’s help.

But Jesus meant something far deeper than this when He told His disciples to carry their cross.  He said to them, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Luke 9:23).  In Jesus’ day, a cross wasn’t just a symbol of pain and suffering; it was mainly a symbol of death.  What Jesus was telling them is that they needed to put to death their own plans and desires, and then turn their lives over to Him and do His will every day.

You see, Jesus doesn’t simply call us to believe that He existed, or even to believe that He can save us.  He calls on us to commit our whole lives to Him—to trust Him alone for our salvation, and then to follow Him as His disciples. He said, “Anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:27).

Is Christ the master of your life?  Have you put to death your own plans and committed yourself to His will for your life?  Don’t be satisfied with anything less, for there is no greater joy in life than following Christ every day”.  billygraham.org

Reading Rev. Graham’s words to others who desire to know and serve Christ reminded me of something my grandfather would say many years ago when I was a boy, “don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today!”  Which leads my thoughts back to what I believe this other blogger elicited in my thoughts about lent;  And that reminds me of what you’re saying here, how Lent Season should be looked upon; how we are not to waste this golden opportunity to get into alignment with the Lord!

“Go in through the narrow gate, because the gate to hell is wide and the road that leads to it is easy, and there are many who travel it.” Matthew 7:13

So yes it is a difficult road we travel but we can make it much more difficult than it need be and indeed impossible to overcome or we can make it a journey of “Fulfillment and Victory” over all that is against us, yes even death itself; to become champions at being His “humble servants” though Jesus Christ for God who is in heaven, our Father Who is waiting to embrace us in our everlasting New Life when we join Him there.

Jesus is still here leading us to the Father by His Holy Spirit, to our New and Everlasting Life if we will just follow Him our Good Shepherd. 

God Bless You and Keep You.

I needed to share here a potion of what I had to say to another fellow Christian blogger yesterday while having a conversation about a dog I rescued and this too also serves as evidence demonstrating how, Jesus is the Master Potter and He will shape our lives to suit what purpose our Father sees as best for each one of us as long as we turn our lives over to Jesus and are truly letting Him lead us by our right hand.

Thank you so much for having the interest in Penny and sending out all of the good thoughts you do!  Yes, she was a very confused panic stricken animal when I came along, that was about to have her life taken away by a too busy not always caring world, but God gave her a chance by allowing me and Penny to act as a message of “Salvation and Hope” when God brought us together, so in time that example would be observed or even duplicated through the hearts and minds of others that hear about her story!  God gave me a chance to serve as an instrument to that end appreciating life and every little blessing even more this example of Penny, because having her as a friend has actually changed me for the better too!  God’s power and infinite love is at work all around us and that is where our attention should be focused as much as we possibly can.

I do believe that we children of God are much like Penny in that when she had no direction or hope, feeling that way because of her confused and lost emotional state when I found her, through what I know was “God’s deliverance and Divine Intervention.”  To move from despair to hope and onto salvation!  This is an example of God’s daily handiwork in our lives to shape each of us to bring about His Great Plan which is unfolding every second, He does actually have; “the whole wide world in his hands!”

The other thing that immediately captured my attention in your comment was when you mentioned Brother Lawrence and his writing who I actually never heard of and this was very intriguing to me, so I actually got to thinking about him a bit looking him up here online as I was telling you about the seagull I rescued, and now I want to read about his beautiful, as I see it methodology of communing with God continually from a very basic simple focus and complete openness with due diligence, being able to know His presence first hand and in the way that God allows one to manifest a very close relationship with Him, in what I would call a state of attuned connection with the Holy Spirit moment to moment, sort of being on the same frequency, by being free and trusting through genuine belief that He will talk to you if you are willing to let yourself go and allow Him to lead, trusting Him by faith alone.  You and I do this because now I know we were meant to converse, and little special dots are being connected as we just do like this, whereby you told me about this fascinating Monk Lawrence that I’m so inspired to read about now, and will get this book of his,  “The Practice of the Presence of God.”

Brother Lawrence web size.jpg

“The Practice of the Presence of God is a book of collected teachings of Brother Lawrence (born Nicholas Herman), a 17th-century Carmelite friar, compiled by Father Joseph de Beaufort.  The compilation includes letters, as well as records of his conversations kept by Brother Lawrence’s interlocutors.  The basic theme of the book is the development of an awareness of the presence of God.”   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Practice_of_the_Presence_of_God

“Brother Lawrence retreated to a place in his heart where the love of God made every detail of his life of surpassing value.  ‘I (Brother Lawrence) began to live as if there were no one save God and me in the world.’  Together, God and Brother Lawrence cooked meals, ran errands, scrubbed pots, and endured the scorn of the world.

How to talk to God web.jpg

“I regard myself as the most wretched of all men, stinking and covered with sores, and as one who has committed all sorts of crimes against his King.  Overcome by remorse, I confess all my wickedness to Him, ask His pardon and abandon myself entirely to Him to do with as He will.  But this King, filled with goodness and mercy, far from chastising me, lovingly embraces me, makes me eat at His table, serves me with His own hands, gives me the keys of His treasures and treats me as His favorite.  He talks with me and is delighted with me in a thousand and one ways; He forgives me and relieves me of my principle bad habits without talking about them; I beg Him to make me according to His heart and always the more weak and despicable I see myself to be, the more beloved I am of God.”
Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God

“That all things are possible to him who believes, that they are less difficult to him who hopes, they are more easy to him who loves, and still more easy to him who perseveres in the practice of these three virtues.”
Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God
“We ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed.”

Post Post Script continuation part III

Just today I had spoken with a sister about some events in the news and my “Lent Offering” blog which she said inspired her not only because of how it was written but that as usual I had prayed to Jesus to help me with the body of the article, from my most genuine thoughts, feelings, and desire with my heart through Him, to know what words to say and even the right photos to add which seem to come along easily.  Then today an email notice had arrived at the same time my sister and I had talked, which was about one of the very topics we had been discussing since my writing the “Lent Offering” article and how this article that addressed the unfairness of President Trump’s impeachment had definite tie-in to what we discussed; but most remarkable was the fact that the photo I felt directed to add to my blog when I wrote it was of Rev. Billy Graham taken many years ago in the early days of his evangelizing which now along with the photo that accompanied the article I received about President Trump connected profoundly in my way of seeing these two photos and men; especially in spirit and intent of both men being called to a higher purpose in order to serve God for their fellow man!  I see dots being connected all of the time lately as God sees best, in order to reach and help each of us to see Him and the truth he is revealing over time about our personal journeys in serving Him; our unique part that each of us has in His plan, day by day and bit by bit or as I say “dot by dot!”  I’m adding the photo for your discernment and I appreciate how we are so richly blessed to be able to share this way in fellowship for Him, especially when we consider how often times we actually make it through the gauntlet of life here on earth each and every day!  3/2/2020
