The Gift of Devotional Love

In response to a fellow animal advocates commentary about one of my short stories.

Dear Friend and Great Animal Advocate of God’s, thank you for this acknowledgement and sharing of your beautiful experience with me and others!  I’m also thankful you came along to say this when you did because I was actually contemplating something stirring in my soul that I needed to address with God and the “Call of the Wild Things,” the Animals; but more profound the Wild in us as Human Beings!  How, if we are truly connected to our Maker we will always feel a stirring in our hearts that penetrates deep into the soul bringing us closer to the Wildness in All of Nature and indeed All of Creation!

When things are the quietest that is when we can hear the most, in that stillness we can hear the chorus of angels that speak to us through our deepest mind and being which is only from a pure heart!  I believe that connection you have with your Great Dog is like that, a connection that is pure and even more real than the physicality of our earthly life here; it is truly a GIFT from GOD!  That bond we feel in that relationship between two souls is also what we can have with our Maker!  Again, I thank you and your dog my friend for being who and where you are in all creation; you connected at this precise moment of contemplation!

Also I know how you feel about doing whatever it takes to save that life the way you have your Dog’s, because that bond of devotion and appreciation of actually being alive is what it’s all about!  Both actually existing, being alive but more importantly able to be totally cognizant of that fact, with visceral appreciation!

God Bless!

“A God Sent Ray of Hope and Light on Thanksgiving for a Dog and a Man”

I rescued my dog from being put down at a shelter when I came along by God Sent about a dozen hours before it was scheduled and a couple of days before Thanksgiving!  If I hadn’t been working near the shelter and heard howls that reminded me of the wolf howl or “Call of the Wild” which I used to do with mush team dogs I had rescued years prior; like Jack London’s great story which I’ve always loved, I would not have been curious before the shelter closed that afternoon to go look and found out in fact that two Champion blood line Siberian Huskies had gotten out of a house in an affluent town next door and where there at the shelter only a few hours because their owners were frantically looking for them which was the call out for my current dog to give her attention to me in order for me to be aware she was in dire need!  I got there and knew the director from years prior when she was a dog officer for the town and I said; that dog what are you doing with her, no name on her cage?  And she said the Police Department decided she has to be destroyed!  I said “NO WAY,” only because this lady knew how determined and sure I can be she went out on a limb for me as she later told me and did what is unheard of there and called the Chief after hours and then others in the loop to save her; and the next morning I was waiting before the place opened in the parking lot!  I gave the lady Anne time to get things going and not even public visiting hours yet at that point, then I went in to ask about Penny which was the name they gave her months before and she said, ” Larry don’t say anything and go see your dog!”  Makes me cry remembering how I felt that day, just as Anne said that I started crying!  I love this dog so much I would take a bullet for her or do anything to protect her!  It’s been figured she is a dog with Jackal in her, being Basenji and Ridge Back!  She was very hard to control or get to be calm and nice in the house for the first few years’ lots of work and mopping up after her, very destructive and defiant almost, tearing down mini blinds to see who was outside nearby, wanting so much attention and freedom to do as she pleases!  I let her sleep on my bed every night now!  She loves me so much and same back to her!  Also turned out that the Police Department had given her a shot and allowed her to be adopted after some months of working with her in the shelter environment but she was brought back immediately by the family as completely unruly, the final nail in her coffin, that is until I came along in the nick of time!  Thanks be to God!

Hope I made you feel something nice inside telling you all this!

Standing Boldly in the Darkest Hours

The Animal Rights Advocate Pledge.

Fellow Advocate if you can lead the way we can follow or when you need me or some other advocate to take the lead and advance the cause by all means don’t hesitate to say so, I’m more than willing and able to face any adversary for what is RIGHT and JUST!  To me my life means nothing if in the darkest hours I fail to stand boldly before our true enemies in this world, and there are many!  Prayer and fellowship with one another are always needed and beneficial but BRAVERY and VALOR are harder to come by in most circumstances these days, because too many would rather pass the “buck” or leave the “dirty work” for someone else to do!  I don’t have that problem because nobody owns me and I’m not beholding to any power on earth, political or otherwise and I’m always willing to go down with the ship if need be!  Justice must be served in this world because we know that evil has gotten too many to cooperate already, and that will not do, it must be stopped dead in its tracks and obliterated if necessary; because it intends on infecting the entire human race with its end being destruction!

“WE SAVE THE ANIMALS WE SAVE OURSELVES!”

We fail them; our lives are worth dust in the wind.

All of this I say because of “NDUME” the gorilla, in his honor!

Better Angels of Our Nature

And inspiration from a simple post asking for signatures to seek justice in the murder of a puppy!  This quote headed the petition.  “A puppy was allegedly beaten to death in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The suspect reportedly used a shovel to fatally injure the helpless dog. Demand justice for this innocent animal.”

“Lawrence, thank you for fighting the savagery around the world.  The world needs the voice of moral to hang on to the logics of having compassion tying together society.  My best wishes.”

Thank you my dear Friend and compassionate Animal Rights Advocate!  Your stepping up is appreciated and it does make a big difference in advancing the cause to foster and protect all sentient animal life as we take these battles on one by one fighting the good fight seeking to make a difference each and every time with our collective powerful voice!  God Bless You and Yours!

Mikael, your assessment of the situation is accurate and faithful!  And I personally appreciate your recognition along with your fine upstanding moral support in this case; but moreover in the larger arena of how morals and humanity are dissipating profusely! I’m no perfect specimen but I am a basically decent good person like yourself and many others who are so tired and weary of the escalation of global troubles all instigated and inflamed by mankind!  Sometimes it seems the human race takes a great step forward to only take two backward! 

I deeply believe these words by one of my favorite Iconic Historical Figures of all time who was truly a wonderful man and human being to have walked upon this earth, Abraham Lincoln!  At his First Inaugural Address he spoke these words of great wisdom and to me they even pierced into spiritual depth of conscience that applied all those years ago and yet they do just as clearly today!

“The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave, to every heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”

My Friend, and all fellow advocates, indeed the better angels of our human/spiritual nature must endure if we are to win these battles against all Evils!  That is our strength that we should rely on overtly with sincere conviction of heart, as God is our witness!

Amen 🙏  God Bless All Animals 🙏

Let’s Dispel the Seeds of Doubt

I’m very sad that you suffered my friend along with your family and believe your Dad suffered through all that turmoil and dishing out his abuse which was from a tormented soul.  I do know there is God, and justice will always prevail, even though we don’t always see it or get the picture right away it is all going to come out that good overcame evil, light overcame the darkness!  What you went through was absolutely horrible and heartbreaking to me, I even cry thinking of the little girl being subjected to all of that when by right she should have been caressed with gentle and comforting, nurturing love and affection by all those around her that were and are her family!

Now look, you made it through all of it and on this side of that earthly hellish nightmare you do good things and taught your kids to do the same which it sounds like they get it and live as peacefully and proper as they should and can, which is a credit to your determination not to do harm and be a horrid parent like your dad was!  Don’t be sad or angry when I say this, but I even feel pity on your dad and see so much waste and loss by his being consumed by the alcohol and devils that go along with it.  Scripture as you know addresses remaining sober at all times, and says we should not to fall into drunkenness; and why is that do you think?  Because then one opens them self up to all manner of corruption and yes evil!  As I told you I actually put out an effort to have my former cousin in-law much the kind of person your dad was, thought of in special prayers by a highly devout group of Christian Brothers of the Catholic Church which along with my own thoughts and prayers is my sincere hope that he won’t be damned to hell which is permanent as you know once God judges a soul!

I believe in hope and that is why I see it the way I do even for my cousin in-law who like you got me so angry at times I felt he would be better off dead but that was not up to me even though I asked God to take him as I’m sure my cousin did at times and you and your mom did your dad!  That HOPE thing is important to hold dear in the heart, because it has much to do with what we are here for and goes to the question you ask as to why God would let this suffering of yours go on like it did!  I’m sure you agree we are learning from all of this good, bad and ugly by means of FREE WILL.  If God steps in and stops this or that in the billions of lives on earth then He is a Master Puppeteer and this is all some theater type shows for his amusements, do you get that?  God is the greatest LOVE and we are minute peons in comparison to the actual LOVE He has and can give to any of us for the asking!  That was the purpose of the Crucifixion and taking DEATH ON when he didn’t even deserve a slap in the face yet HE did that for YOU!  You think you suffered?  Now compare it to Jesus Christ, all good and all love, perfect yet being blamed for all sin and the most evil ugly crimes and filthy scum horrible things committed by all humans that ever lived and will live being put on his heart and soul and taking them all as His own when he is ABSOLUTELY PURE LOVE and WITHOUT BLAME!  Why the hell would he do that and be suffering beyond any human’s comprehension of suffering, WHY?   I can tell you what you already KNOW!  He LOVES YOU that much and YOU mean that MUCH to Him!  He wants to SAVE us all but it MUST be a FREE WILL CHOICE!  That way you see and understand and then, you do love Him with all of your heart and soul.

I hear the hurt and also the defiance in your tone and heart saying yes I believe in my own way, but you are saying I’m pissed off at God and I don’t know what I believe for sure about all of that; except that I will try being a nice person, and helping kids or animals is my way of showing it!  When you say” why would God let all this bad happen to us and leave us to suffer in this messed up world;” you are playing into the hands of evil!   Anti-God, Anti-Christ atheists use that ploy all of the time saying there is NO God because if there was He would stop it all with the snap of fingers or blink of the eye.  Poppycock, so said the Devil; then we would be all bots that God made and have NO Free Will and thus NO Free Mind or Heart to actually choose to Love Him or each other!   I Say if there was no imperfection or evil nothing would go wrong, it would all be bliss as was mentioned in the Garden during INNOCENCE, before all of this!  But there must be positive and negative, light and dark in order to have Free Will and Creative Free Minds and Hearts!

You’re angry deep inside and I get it, and I am too at times but never at God; I know He helped me in many circumstances at times but didn’t stop bad shit from happening to me many times.  I have to blame myself first for some of it and then the rotten corrupted or even wicked persons that did me harm intentionally out of hate, jealousy or selfish material gain!  You may not like what I’m about to tell you but so be it because you need it!  You must strengthen your FAITH like never before and GROW in your LOVE for Him your personal Savior who is waiting for you to see how much He loves you, and what great plans He has for you!  “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.”   You can choose to believe that in your heart and mean it, or you can say whatever and pretend you believe as many people do today when they say I don’t talk about religion which is ridiculous on its face!  It’s like a leper to say you believe and I love God through His begotten Son, and I love Him so much I want to shout it from the roof tops?  To say you must be silent is saying you are not devout; and doing it in your own way is poppycock, you are mad and blaming God for your pain and suffering and have not opened your heart to Him and turned your life over to Him!  So many others suffer way more than our suffering!

This life is very short look how in your dad’s case 30ish years, which is like a puff on a cigarette as some folks that smoked many most their lives would say in terms of earthly time.  God is Timeless and Eternal and Pure Love, do you want that?  Then make up your mind and most importantly your HEART; to truly trust and love Him in return and hand it all over to Him!  If any of us makes the worst decision here in this short life we may find after it, that we pay for that wrong choice for ETERNITY; is it worth a gamble and just saying whatever and I’ll wait and see?  Not for me no way no how, I plan on being where God and all my loved ones and anything that is good will be for Eternity, so I can be happy, loving and loved beyond imagination!

God says in the Holy Scriptures this world is passing away, what do you think he said that for thousands of years ago?  Because in the book of Revelations it says it will all come to an end, and I see it happening without a doubt, so this is a temporary almost fake world compared to the Higher Spiritual complete and perfect world God has prepared for any who want it, but there is one way to get it!  JESUS CHRIST!  God suffered and took on all of that for any of us to have this chance now that is right in our faces!  Take it or leave it, the choice is yours!

The Redemption is Mankind’s Hope

From a conversation about faith and religion.

Tony, I give you an acknowledgement because you speak of some truth, but then fall drastically short when you speak of “The only main faith is one HUMANITY, others are political names chosen by the followers of their relevant Prophet messengers.” That is a falsehood and is Anti-Christ! Jesus Christ Himself clearly stated that to follow anything or anyone other than Him the true living and everlasting God is not the path to everlasting life, he alone is God and He came as a man to provide the redemption and only path to Heaven.  Either people eventually see and accept that or they are lost and nothing else will save them; Jesus Christ died on the cross that they would live!  It comes down to “FREE WILL” God is perfect and He wants us to be perfect with Him as a family but if he “waved a wand” or we were “programmed” to behave perfect then we would be robots and not individual perfect beings that LOVE HIM because we Choose To; love must be a two way street where each loves the other by choice or it is not LOVE!  If we accept Jesus as our Savior, when our souls go to heaven we will receive our glorified body and become perfect.

Also it was the Apostles who actually walked on this earth with Jesus, who collectively wrote God’s inspired word in the books of the Bible, to any Christian of Faith there is no denying that these words are directly from God Himself!  God does require true believers in Him Jesus Christ the Savior to have discernment and not just accept cruelty and hatred because of some false ideology.  Old Testament principles were not to be put above the New Testament in which Jesus Christ clearly states that He alone is the Way the Path and the Life!  If you think discernment is disrespect, then so be it that is your problem not a faithful Christians!

I think our discussing anything else is a waste of time and your composite of what humanity needs is Heresy so you best take care not to fall into that trap which leads directly to Hell just as Mohammad and others have done!  Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior or you are on a futile mission leading to only one place and it won’t be with God. You are talking blasphemy and concocting a man-made composite religion which has and is being talked about by many so called New Age, the blending of cultures and practices which is doomed to failure! None are the SAVIOR.

 

✝The Lord God Jesus Christ Thy Savior and Redeemer, to Him Alone Every Knee Shall Bend ✝

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  Amen and we should shout it from the highest mountain tops with great JOY! 🙏

With Love,

Post Script: Later some additional insight and truth is added here.

Let’s be simple and truthful! The human race is doomed to failure and totally corrupted with SIN.  That means we as mere humans are imperfect and incapable of perfection. Therefore, we could never be in the presence of perfection namely God the Creator of all that there is!  In order for we humans to bridge that impossible gap between imperfection and perfection required God Himself to make His real presence in the world known to Mankind and established the “Ten Commandments” having Moses deliver them to the Chosen People!  Obviously someone had to be chosen this is an imperfect world so this is the way it is done!  Then this was headed for the eventual final “Everlasting Covenant” with mankind when God through an immaculate conception was born a human so that in being a real human He could be the one human without SIN and then take all of our sins away, so then if we accept Him as our Savior then we can be given the Gift of Eternal Perfect Existence!  He alone is the redeemer; you can’t show any other means of gaining perfection and being in the presence of Eternal HOLY Absolute Perfection!  No way no how!  You go in circles trying to avoid this TRUTH!  By Free Will we chose as individuals where we will go Heaven or Hell.  Perfect plan!

 

The Eternal Gift

✝The Lord God Jesus Christ Thy Savior and Redeemer, to Him Alone Every Knee Shall Bend✝

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Amen and though it was almost against the law to wish it in public for 8 previous years we know that was a sin and we should shout it from the highest mountain tops with great JOY! Amen

But this was the key thought inspired by a man’s impression of my gentle mercy.  You said my compassion gives you hope for mankind but stands in sharp contrast to the reality before us, but I say the only real HOPE for mankind is Salvation!  And who offers such salvation that can be real and possible?  Jesus Christ and no one else has or will ever be able to offer what He did on that cross and when he rose from the dead he fulfilled his promise of an everlasting covenant with Mankind that to have faith in Him will bring eternal life!

Your Faith is real so therefore so is your Hope, that you will receive the Real Gift of Eternal Life! When we give pause and actually think of our lifetimes here even if 100 years, when compared to the timeline of the universe it’s not even a tick of the clock, or barely can say “here today and gone tomorrow” with any significant meaning on its face! So what does that mean, to me it says very clearly that we had better not be trying to store up our treasures here on earth or grabbing whatever we can to show we have it, because anyone doing that is going to lose big time, no two ways about it!  What comes beyond this life is all that matters and that is where we should be focusing our energies; to be sure we understand what we do here will directly affect what will happen when this moment in time is over for each of us!  Will we choose to have Faith in Him or trust what we can grab in the here and now?  That world beyond is what we should seek through Him!  Seeking that Life beyond with passion and ever growing faith and commitment to it, because the promise that was made by Him alone is REAL and will be kept; but all else fails and will give you nothing in the end!  God Bless! 🙏
