What follows is my heart felt response to another blogger and advocate of good.

Thank you very much for your kind suggestion and consideration, as well for your thoughtfulness in making this gesture to me!

The sad thing about the main stream media is they too often sensationalize to exploit something as if normal business as usual practice or standard operating procedure!  It being a billion dollar business or industry it’s doing so for purely monetary or political purposes falling in line with the ruling elite or some very powerful influential individuals, and not acting as any agent of public edification or some virtuous body of positivity to foster and improve anything; they only use and discard moving on to the next sensationalism.  Look what the George Floyd media circus was really all about and how it enabled mobs to go out and victimize or destroy with no accountability! All over a man that was a criminal thug drug dealer and user with a long rap sheet never doing anything to better himself as a human being or help others in need as a charitable person would but instead selling dope to others that kills a sinful act; an action sanctified by media that caused losses in the multiple billions of dollars and death to many innocent persons!  All of that while these domestic terror organizations like BLM and Antifa by generating so much mayhem further sensationalizing a story for the media to exploit further while these criminal perpetrators bring in billions of dollars of revenue support to use as they wish for personal material gain buying exclusive million dollar homes or to use in conducting further terrorist plans and fund other elicit operations like some kind of giant Mafioso crime syndicate organization. Comparing all that to a child getting his knuckles wrapped with a ruler or some other corporal punishment many decades ago hardly seems like a serious problem to be bringing to the fore in the midst of all this current mayhem; unless there is a hidden nefarious agenda or something in play, which there is; a very dark and sinister one!  This agenda is currently and will be moving forward causing even more damage than all of the George Floyd riots did; and because of these hidden agendas or purposes, some of the most deadly nefarious persons are being allowed to get away with perpetrating such evil upon the naïve or confused public, all in the name of power and money.

Right now, today, we could point out instances of child neglect or abuse like the young girl that was paddled by teachers in a Florida elementary school an old corporal punishment practice; for her being totally unruly! So we do observe by this example how there are still indeed things happening which demonstrate how many things which are promoted or allowed as just everyday news are being promulgated throughout society by the major media outlets which are damaging people’s minds, especially the children with a toxic soup of negativity and confusing mixed messages; or even hidden agendas to condition the public, CIA stuff!  We can point out how the Bible states in Scripture to spare the rod is to spoil the child; which sounds old fashioned to today’s let them get away with whatever appeasing mindset but what the matter boils down to is discipline and proper guidance which all children and adults must learn and abide by; or we end up with BLM and Antifa crazies running loose; a corrupted and enabled society!  We are all now witnesses to a steady stream of propaganda that is not only damaging individual minds and hearts with poison; but the whole of society.  Child abuse is happening right out in the open and all in the name of so called diversity acceptance and other such smoke screens for nefarious agendas. The Devil is sure getting his due today!  I include an article I wrote which clearly points this out.

The Devil Gets His Due from the Devil’s Advocates

As to what I was originally saying about Native Americans my basis of commendation to many of them is that they are a people who had to accept huge changes that came to a land as humanity evolves, but have complained the least!  And when many of them were in their old cultures or practices and some still are today, a virtuous noble people, that in my opinion always deserve credit and appreciation for setting good examples; like Jim Thorpe did, and multitudes of others! They grew to appreciate opportunity, and accept things they must facing adversity while therefore making the best of any given situation; so unlike what George Floyd did during his whole adult life of deprivation, being an ingrate and despot of society! I hate to use such a cliché but it fits too well so I must; you make your bed so you have to lay in it!

I would love to help Naïve Americans if at all possible and will if given that opportunity but not by attacking anyone or our Great Nation under God!  Here I want to insert a bit of wonderful information that is a great testimony to my point I make here about Native People’s in the North American Continent!

Saint Kateri docu

“St. Kateri Tekakwitha is the first Native American to be recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church. She was born in 1656, in the Mohawk village of Ossernenon. Her mother was an Algonquin, who was captured by the Mohawks and who took a Mohawk chief for her husband.

She contracted smallpox as a four-year-old child which scarred her skin. The scars were a source of humiliation in her youth. She was commonly seen wearing a blanket to hide her face. Worse, her entire family died during the outbreak. Kateri Tekakwitha was subsequently raised by her uncle, who was the chief of a Mohawk clan.

Kateri was known as a skilled worker, who was diligent and patient. However, she refused to marry. When her adoptive parents proposed a suitor to her, she refused to entertain the proposal. They punished her by giving her more work to do, but she did not give in. Instead, she remained quiet and diligent. Eventually they were forced to relent and accept that she had no interest in marriage.

At age 19, Kateri Tekakwitha converted to Catholicism, taking a vow of chastity and pledging to marry only Jesus Christ. Her decision was very unpopular with her adoptive parents and their neighbors. Some of her neighbors started rumors of sorcery. To avoid persecution, she traveled to a Christian native community south of Montreal.

According to legend, Kateri was very devout and would put thorns on her sleeping mat. She often prayed for the conversion of her fellow Mohawks. According to the Jesuit missionaries that served the community where Kateri lived, she often fasted and when she would eat, she would taint her food to diminish its flavor. On at least one occasion, she burned herself. Such self-mortification was common among the Mohawk.

Kateri was very devout and was known for her steadfast devotion. She was also very sickly. Her practices of self-mortification and denial may not have helped her health. Sadly, just five years after her conversion to Catholicism, she became ill and passed away at age 24, on April 17, 1680.

Her name, Kateri, is the Mohawk form of Catherine, which she took from St. Catherine of Siena.

St. Kateri Tekakwitha was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on Oct. 21, 2012. She is the patroness of ecology and the environment, people in exile and Native Americans.” catholic.org

All those rioters were actually encouraged by MSM (media) and government officials who promoted the entire George Floyd evil media circus of debauchery as though a good thing; have condemned themselves to great suffering here and in the next world; I assure you by the humble saintly name of St. Kateri Tekakwitha!  They should all be cowering in shame and fear of God’s judgment, but they have none; as they have been touched and given the mark of not just sin but evil!

I appreciate the consideration and thoughtfulness on your part my friend.

God bless all involved in these benevolent aspirations to do good for others.

I love this man Doctor Ben Carson for being a real human being and wonderful doctor who had performed countless brain surgeries, many of them on children making the difference in saving their lives and or giving a quality of life that would otherwise not have been!  Here he worked hard growing up in a tough needy environment but yet he pursued goodness only wanting to do good in this world, and what is obviously the right thing to do!  He put so much effort in saving human life; then we see the extreme opposite in the form of people like AOC a true wench and wretched human being just like Pelosi, Biden and all of the leftist hateful destructive self-worshiping derelicts of the pro-abortion ilk; so called doctors that tear apart little helpless human beings in a mother’s womb or now completely born just snipping their spinal columns or leaving the baby to die in a closet, and not calling that murder or batting an eyelash over it; what wicked humans they have become!

Look at what Doctor Carson says here and please realize we are looking at night and day or Good versus Evil in a world that is so out of control!  Saint John Paul II another wonderful human being who grew up in Poland during WWII and on into the Soviet Union dominance of Eastern Europe with so much communist oppression and hate, yet he like Doctor Carson would do all he could to protect innocent human life and he did state in his writings how we now live in a Culture of Death which is exactly what Doctor Carson is pointing out!

Devil’s Work: Our culture of death: The darkness is getting darker

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

Ben Carson

From the Desk of Dr. Ben Carson:

Hello,
I feel like our culture has forgotten—or ignored—some very important and basic lessons when it comes to the development of human life.
Our society has been infected by an anti-life ideology, treating its most vulnerable members as disposable objects. Abortion that was once thought of as a last resort in a medical emergency has become the new normal.
Medicine tells us that life begins at the moment of conception. It also tells us when an unborn baby develops a heartbeat, brainwaves, and nervous system. Yet, despite all of this, the unborn are not treated as though they are alive or even human.
As a surgeon, I have operated on infants pre-birth. I can assure you that they are very much alive.

Dr. Ben Carson, Founder and Chairman of American Cornerstone Institute
Life is a precious gift that has been given to us from our creator. No person is disposable, and every life is precious according to Him.
I believe that everyone deserves life, even those who have been denied this right by our society. I believe that together we can make a difference and bring dignity and a voice to the unborn. I also believe that I’m not alone in this belief.
I believe that you believe that too.
I’ve started working with a group of like-minded individuals who are looking to change our culture. We want to build a society that values life but that takes people like you and I making a commitment.
The first step is clearly stating what we believe and what we are willing to do to protect the lives of the unborn. . Will you join me today and stand up for those who cannot do it for themselves?
I’ve created a new pro-life pledge; I’d love your support. Would you read the pledge below to see if you align with our shared goals and are willing to commit to fighting for the lives of the unborn?

Purpose and Sacrifice

“There is no greater love than this: that a person would lay down his life for the sake of his friends”

Birds in Jungle kiss sm pint

All souls are always being tested; but like no other time the process is building to a crescendo by factors that have never existed on planet earth!

“There is no greater love than this: that a person would lay down his life for the sake of his friends.” John 15:13

“24Then Jesus told His disciples, “If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. 25For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matthew 16:24-26

“32Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father in heaven. 33But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven. 34Do not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” Matthew 10:32-34

In this present extremely technological age, a very secular materialistic self-centered global culture the occasion of a person absolutely willing to give up his own life so he could allow others to live is even more rare today; but it happens. Back in the day I was told by some World War II Veterans; that acts of courage and complete sacrifice happened as they personally witnessed some soldiers singlehandedly run straight into a machine gun nest and toss a grenade into the encampment to neutralize the enemy that had been wiping out many soldiers as they were attempting to take the hill or high ground; but in the process this selfless duty bound soldier did what needed to be done, saving many of his fellow soldiers and advanced the goal of overtaking the enemy in order to win the battle and eventually end the war!

“A dying breed, today these people are lazy; yes also arrogant and selfish.”

This past Wednesday I was at a retail shopping plaza where two major retail stores are located.  I parked my vehicle in the parking lot in front of the store where I needed to buy the items. When I was finished I had just put my supplies in the vehicle and thought I actually do need to shop in the other store, but decided I don’t need to drive my vehicle through the large parking areas to get closer to that store, because I have two legs and I’m fully capable of doing the little hike over to the other store.

After shopping there I walked out with the shopping carriage and walked to the other parking lot and unloaded those items, and because the shopping carriage was the property of the store I just purchased those items from I thought that it wouldn’t be right to leave their shopping carriage in another retail outlets parking lot.  So I wanted to take the hike through the parking lots to the front of the store and put that carriage in the area where it belongs. As I got there I suddenly saw another man coming around from behind some parked cars and trucks with a shopping carriage and he looked me straight in the eyes and said, “we’re a dying breed,” to which I replied yes that’s true people have changed, when he then said, “they’re lazy,” and I then added, very arrogant and selfish too.

I think God intended on that encounter to happen as a Godsend and it was a direct recognition of what I had been thinking about that day and much of the week, about how people have changed so much for the worse, in this present time.  I thought how I’ve seen a drastic radical change in just the years since I was a boy to now, where things have grown progressively very sad and cold, very vicious; and how people like frightened animals are getting more nasty with each other while self-preservation is ruling their thinking as well as their hearts too much; making the old adage, “it’s a dog eat dog world,” very true.  But this whole experience did fit what I had been contemplating writing in this latest essay, and served as an encouragement!

Now we come to what’s to me a very profoundly important conversation I had with a really good guy that works for the government locally who has an equally good wife and teenage children; a wonderful family!  He and I would have lengthy conversations during the most harrowing time period in my life when it seemed for all intent and purposes that I had been fighting a long battle on my own because the system and most people are too jaded, corrupted or very heartless toward even a person who has been wronged and severely damaged both physically and emotionally primarily for speaking truth and taking a stand opposing the corruption; to only bring positive change. Then as this new found ally had put it, “it’s like you’re being tested by fire.”

Purpose and Sacrifice

What did Jesus say; that there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for another? Sacrifice, isn’t this the ultimate duty of all who wish to do God’s will in this short life or temporary existence on earth? If we are to imitate Christ during our trials and tribulations here, should we do less, than to give up what is most precious to each of us, to freely give in to that, means to an end? To make an offering of our own selves out of love and compassion for others, so that in doing this we provide an opportunity for those who receive our ultimate sacrifice, to learn and grow in their own understanding and appreciation by our example, of what this life here is really all about, so that they who are and become more enlightened can know and fully appreciate the love that God has for each of us.

thinredline

During a special conversation I had with this new friend I spoke about “The Thin Red Line,” and how I recognized that Jim Caviezel played the part of a Christ like figure named Witt; when he told the two younger recruits with him to go on ahead without him, to make their escape down the river, while he will distract the attention of the enemy, the Japanese soldiers, in order that these two innocent victims of circumstance, (they were unfairly assigned such a dangerous mission), can make their escape to safety.  But, more importantly they will learn about selfless compassionate love, what it really means; to love one another also as I have loved you.  This kind of act is obviously a moment of awakening, revelation and even rebirth. In that moment of self-actualization, those two young recruits were given the gift of continued life here in this physical plane of existence by another giving up his own precious life and blood, so that, more importantly they might go on to learn that it is not this life that is most important but rather, the Life to Come, and that what we all should recognize is that the belief of an eternal life to come is more real and precious than this temporary one could ever be.  This life is like the mere flickering of a flame in its delicate balance between light and darkness, as it dances for a short while, only to be extinguished any moment without warning or recourse into oblivion.  Not even a memory of the beautiful flickering flame of light would exist if not for the Power and Glory of God.  Only through God’s Majesty and Glory can the inner meaning of pure never ending love be found or can our lives be of any real value, for without “eternal love” there can be no “purpose” or significance to anything we perceive and experience here in the flesh.  “It’s only love that makes all of us greater than the sum total of these chemical and biological earthly forms,” and, it was the greatest love that began or sent forth this journey through time and space, in order that we may all be part of that “Glorious One’s Eternal Kingdom.” For now we are all mere babes in the woods seeking and only trying to find our way home, but, “having to learn that without love there is no way home” and more poignantly that “there is no home at all without absolute true love.”  Only God can give and only God can take away, that which was given so freely and with absolute perfection.  Yes, we all do ourselves, and, more importantly others, more good by laying down that which does not really belong to us, but, rather to God the Creator of all things.  To know God and Love God with all of our being should be our main purpose as we journey forth always seeking to do God’s will.

Witt Back stare down Japs sm print 1

As this scene in the story progresses to Witt being shot, it’s like he is suddenly seeing his life flash before him as I see it; but the place his soul is immediately experiencing on his way to heaven is seen as the time he had spent with the island children swimming under the ocean surf, so free and oblivious; quite carefree!  Which to me is reminiscent of being born, going back to that most beautiful precious time any of us have experienced in our short lives; when completely innocent in our mother’s womb!  Being in that tiny secure ocean of love and life so intimately connected and protected; insulated from the worries of the world, which once we came into it we immediately have to cry; and will many times to come!

Witt in water lg print

Witt had a mission to take those two, wet behind the ears, fresh recruits sent on a dangerous mission that would surely get them all killed once surrounded by the enemy forces up the river; but Witt foreseeing just how potentially hopeless and fatal this mission was even for experienced soldiers, offered at the last second to accompany them!  Once up the river heading into enemy fire and overwhelming numbers Witt decided that it wasn’t a fair assignment; especially not for those two young men! So he took it upon himself to give them the time they needed to get back to the platoon and safety while he distracted the enemy; drawing them away from the recruits but surely setting himself up for a fall!  He laid down his life out of love for his friends!

There were variations on this theme, like when some WWII Army recruits were only 16 having fudged a document in order to meet the minimum age requirement to enlist and even made speedy progress to become battle hardened soldiers.  One such soldier ended up in the thick of it being in some of the worst combat battles in the history of the war and singlehandedly fought off overwhelming enemy combatants in the battle field, saving many of his fellow soldiers!  One such hero was a young man that joined the Army at 16 years of age who during the war rose to the rank of 2d Lieutenant and later after the war became a Hollywood movie star; Audie Murphy!

“He was one of the most decorated American combat soldiers of World War II. He received every military combat award for valor available from the U.S. Army, as well as French and Belgian awards for heroism.” Wikipedia

Watching this longer clip of the film “The Thin Red Line” gives a better sense of the heroic sacrifice that is required by some to fulfill a purpose that God ordains in His infinite wisdom by means of His will, to those he chooses to accomplish a given purpose which ultimately brings the intrinsic meaning or purpose to our lives in a multitude of situations; which is all centered on God’s eternal love, and there are many who do His will!

Who are we to question God or His ways and purposes!  Didn’t He give up His only begotten Son our Savior Jesus Christ, to take away all the sins of the world; that all of us have and will commit! Sacrifice is crucial in all of our lives, at least on some level we should all be willing to sacrifice and give more than we receive!

Acts 20:35 “And I have shown you everything, that thus it is necessary to labor and to take care of those who are weak and to remember the words of our Lord Yeshua, who said, ‘He who gives is more blessed than he who receives.’”

Deborah I was so touched and moved by this posting of yours, and even got tears in my eyes; thinking of the young girl you were back then having to feel such shame or ridicule in such a tender, gentle, innocent heart with so much love in it!

Yet you carried on with God’s Holy Spirit guiding you and giving you courage, as you would not let go of that one hand of Salvation that you held onto regardless of what this mean and ugly “Ways of the World” was saying; you would not let Jesus be taken away from you, so you endured the pain and sadness brought on by others so that you could be right where you are now; doing God’s will! Amen!

Thank you for your courage and most of all for your abiding, beautiful Faith in our Savior Jesus Christ who will save anyone that turns to Him in humility on bent knee and asks to receive His gift of eternal Love! Amen.
God bless you and yours!

Don’t hide it. I remember when I was in high school, I felt too ashamed to carry the Bible. Most of the Bibles we had back then were big ones. You can’t carry one inconspicuously. Yes, I felt too embarassed to carry a Bible. Most of my friends did not carry the Bible along and seeing one wih a big Bible on hand gave a kind of different impression. They all tend to think you are that godly, angelic, holy saint. And then they would treat you like one until you make one mistake. It puts a great social pressure plus some laughs at you for carrying a Bible. I was definitely hiding my faith. Scared of what people thought of me. As for my beliefs, I wasn’t assertive about it either. I was not the kind who talks about Jesus unless a friend asked me about God and what…

Never Forget Pearl Harbor 1941

This is a great reminder to anyone reading it of what it took to put us Americans where we’ve been living for the last several decades since Pearl Harbor, in the best country on earth; but it came as always with a huge price!  These days I know it’s safe to say that a large percentage of the American population perhaps even a majority now have no appreciation for these truths and many of them actually don’t care; that is a huge problem moving forward if this nation is to survive another several decades as a Free Nation with True Freedom for its citizens!

Back on December 8th 2019 I wrote this blog essay.
Putting Things in Their Proper Perspective
“THE BIBLE SAYS that the plan of salvation is so simple that even a child can understand it.”

Let me share a portion of that posting here with the link to further inspire others as I’m sure this fine blog posting is doing today as it does me! Because I deeply appreciate what all those past veterans did for us and our nation I really don’t think there could ever be enough said to even come close to showing the debt we in subsequent generation owe them! I only try to give my own deeply emotional perspective here as I have in the past and will always; as long as I’m alive on earth!

https://lawrencemorra.com/2019/12/08/putting-things-in-their-proper-perspective/

You know what’s wrong with so many ungrateful disrespectful, whining, antagonistic spoiled rotten Americans these days? They don’t know how to “put things into their proper perspective” having lived like spoiled rotten got it so damn easy selfish gimme, gimme takers with zero moral conscience, and now they set out to ruin the very land of milk and honey they are blessed to be a part of! Starting with our top government leaders many of which are doing all the wrong things for our nation under God which is the actual foundational heritage and history of how this nation was born and forged with blood, sweat, tears and great suffering to achieve all of the enormous blessings, prosperity and opportunity sitting on our laps here! These trouble makers today should be the ones living back during the time of WWII when push came to shove and 16 year old boys thinking they were men, and compared to many of the youth of today they absolutely were, fudged their birth documents and enlisted in the Armed Forces to go and fight unseen enemies for their country tens of thousands of miles from home sweet home like even some of my own relatives did! Then they saw hell on earth and fellow shipmates or others being killed before their eyes and being eaten alive by sharks in the Pacific Ocean as ships sank after being torpedoed in the ensuing battles after Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese, all leading up to the War being the biggest armed conflict on earth in history! What 16 year olds today would be willing to do that or even have what it takes to leave home for God’s sake where they have the cushy life and are so overly pampered or being brainwashed by stupid pop culture and nefarious mind-sets meant to control them making minions of them for communistic control which here in America the Democrat Party have been exacting upon the people for decades now!

President Franklin Roosevelt called December 7, 1941, “a date which will live in infamy.” On that day, Japanese planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory. The bombing killed more than 2,300 Americans. It completely destroyed the American battleship U.S.S. Arizona and capsized the U.S.S. Oklahoma. The attack sank or beached a total of twelve ships and damaged nine others. 160 aircraft were destroyed and 150 others damaged. The attack took the country by surprise, especially the ill-prepared Pearl Harbor base; after which on the following day December 8, 1941 the President with the whole Nation behind him declared War on Japan.

FDR declare war on japan adjusted

In contrast to this today we have far leftist radical liberals declaring war on the Salvation Army, marriage between a man and a woman, protecting the unborn and even day of birth innocent babies, our Constitution, law enforcement, the military, Christianity, Judaism, Jesus Christ and even God as if they know better that there really isn’t any Creator and how they just appear to be hell-bent on attacking anything that is good or wholesome; could they be that devilish or obsessed and even possessed! These are the people that love ruin and suffering so wouldn’t it be nice if we could send them back to this period in our history and let them deal with that harsh reality of defending what is good and just!

The following is a bit more history on that horrible war before we get down to brass tacks of the mess people are making of things today!

“On 8 December 1941, after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States declared war on Japan and became an active participant in World War II. For some months prior to that attack, however, the United States had been supporting China’s war against Japan with money and materiel. Pearl Harbor formally brought America into World War II, but it was an earlier American commitment to China that drew the United States Army into the Burma Campaign of 1942.

Japan had invaded China in 1937, gradually isolating it from the rest of the world except for two tenuous supply lines: a narrow-gauge railway originating in Haiphong, French Indochina; and the Burma Road, an improved gravel highway linking Lashio in British Burma to Kunming in China. Along these routes traveled the materiel that made it possible for Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist Chinese government to resist the Japanese offensives into the interior.

In 1940 Japan took advantage of the German invasion of France to cut both supply lines to China. In June, with France focused on the war in Europe, Japanese warships moved into French Indochina and closed the railroad from Haiphong. A month later, threatening war if its demands were not met, Japan secured an agreement from the hard-pressed British government to close the Burma Road to war materiel temporarily.

The Burma Road reopened in October 1940, literally the sole lifeline to China. By late 1941 the United States was shipping lend-lease materiel by sea to the Burmese port of Rangoon, where it was transferred to railroad cars for the trip to Lashio in northern Burma and finally carried by truck over the 712-mile-long Burma Road to Kunming. Over this narrow highway, trucks carried munitions and materiel to supply the Chinese Army, whose continuing strength in turn forced the Japanese to keep considerable numbers of ground forces stationed in China. Consequently, Japanese strategists decided to cut the Burma lifeline, gain complete control of China, and free their forces for use elsewhere in the Pacific.”

To reiterate the severity and desperation this attack on Pearl Harbor wreaked upon our nation and indeed the world at the time here is an additional commentary about that event.

“The Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor began just before 8 a.m. local time Sunday morning, December 7, 1941. For over an hour, in two waves, some 350 Japanese aircraft—having taken off from six aircraft carriers 230 miles north of Oahu—attacked the naval base. Japanese forces wreaked havoc on US naval vessels and on US aircraft on the island’s airfield. In all, 2,403 Americans, including 68 civilians, died in the attack. In comparison, Japan suffered relatively light causalities—it lost only 29 aircraft and a few mini-submarines.

The American people were shocked, bewildered, surprised, and angered by the attack. On December 8, President Roosevelt addressed a joint session of Congress in the Capitol, his words broadcast on radio to the nation: “Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”

There is a lot more to read in this long essay but here I insert this potion to bring it into s tighter perspective!
In other words you don’t see the forest for the trees and you think you offer some wisdom here when all you do is divert from the TRUTH which means you would be better to keep your trap shut and stay out of major world crises and stick to rolling another joint or picking your toenails, if this is going to be the extent of your offering to your fellow man! Read my other comments and consider that you have so much to learn in order to understand that God exists and there is a battle going on between “Good and Evil” and mankind is smack dab in the middle of that battle for a reason! Mankind is a minuscule agent in this existence and it’s not his plan but only the plan of the Most High and Holy One; God. In the meantime also consider where you would like your immortal soul to reside for eternity, which ultimately is something you are responsible for and only you will fail or succeed in making sure your soul will be in peace or anguish forever. Avoiding the truth that has been provided to mankind will be no excuse either because you have the basics you need to work with and can understand enough to decide for yourself.

“THE BIBLE SAYS that the plan of salvation is so simple that even a child can understand it.”

This is what I hope to convey to those multitudes I mentioned that don’t get it or don’t even care about the cost of Freedom and the total sacrifice made by some great men and women!
I close out with this excerpt which is from another posting I wrote December 7th 2019 that tied into the above posting perfectly and closed with these words.

“A Touch of Evil” that Will Not Dishearten God’s Elect!”
“through genuine humble faith on bent knee from the heart even if no larger than a mustard seed.”

https://lawrencemorra.com/2019/12/07/a-touch-of-evil-that-will-not-dishearten-gods-elect/

Yes you and I know who I speak about and we witness this abomination by the Greatest Nation on earth, but we must all pray and look beyond all of this wickedness that is trying to overshadow our Great Nation under God and not allow us to clearly remember who this holiday is about; “the one true power, honor and glory which it is about, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” who will have the final say in everything in all of existence!

All I can say is, all of you faithful please keep praying to our Heavenly Father who is holding back from pouring out His wrath, but make no mistake about it the truth is upon us, we have enough proof my faithful friends; the winds of truth and justice are coming for them and all the other deceivers!

Stay in communion with the Holy Spirit by remaining faithfully vigilant in humble prayer and supplication for Him our Savior Jesus Christ, who loves us more than we can actually fully know and experience being outside of His glorious eternal kingdom; yet He made Himself one of us born of the virgin Mary His earthly mother, to prove without a doubt that we are here for one reason; which is that, through genuine humble faith on bent knee from the heart even if no larger than a mustard seed, that faith is the only other ingredient needed in our Father’s equation and plan for any of us to be united with Him in heaven for eternity.

And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Matthew 17:20

So He was saying, “What is the kingdom of God like, and to what shall I compare it? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and threw into his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and THE BIRDS OF THE AIR NESTED IN ITS BRANCHES.” Luke 13:18-19

A Blessed and Merry Christmas to All of You!

Oklahoma Says No to Biden’s Military Vaccine Mandate

“Live Free or Die!”

Fantastic News and Posting!

This is where and how the rubber meets the Road! As in Hit the Road!

God bless Oklahoma’s Military Service Personal and their Leadership!

This is what I’m talking about; let that dictator in the White House who doesn’t appreciate Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness along with his not giving a rat’s ass about America and all those individual Citizens who put it all on the line to preserve and protect this Great Republic under God! How could he when all he has been for the last 50 years is a politician racketeer parasite feeding on anything or person that he could!

This is how We the People Stand Up Against Tyranny and Communism which is being promoted and installed in America mainly because of the “Traitors” like Joe Biden who have been in bed with Communist China’s CCP and government for decades; slowly but surely socking the screws to America and Her People as these Traitors like Biden and even his own son, sold us out while wheeling and dealing for millions and billions of dollars for themselves! These are the “dregs of the world” that have no conscience or ethical principles of morals that God Almighty expects from all of His children on this earth!

Yes I see the bleak future ahead for America and the World, because this world is doomed; it is all spelled out in the Holy Scriptures and “Jesus Christ is Coming Back” to finalize all of creation, judging the living and the dead to set the record straight as to who and what belongs in Hell and so beautifully; who will be with Him for Eternity in Heaven.

Yet we are obligated to do the right thing to the best of our ability in “good God given conscience” always remaining vigilant while we carry on in our lives here; because there is a right and a wrong, so we must choose of our own “Free Will” whether we stand up for Jesus and all He taught the world, or would we prefer joining all those fallen evil forces of Hell being banished and separated from Almighty God for eternity!

This world is not nor can it ever be a rose garden or anyone’s bowl of cherries as some nefarious tyrants so think now, as they keep grabbing and building their ill-gotten gains, growing an earthly empire based on money which is the root of all evil! We who believe in Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer know better! And therefore we seek the “one and only answer to a life and everlasting empire,” a true victory which is in Heaven that calls to our hearts daily through the “Holy Spirit to Follow Jesus” because He is the “Way the Truth and the Life!” Amen.

God bless Oklahoma and all of America’s Military Personnel as they are being put to the test; that they can stand tall shoulder to shoulder throughout this Nation under God and resist this tyranny NOW!

We have always been a Free People which was only so provided by God and all those Patriots who laid it all on the line many times to preserve the one thing all must fully appreciate; FREEDOM! And by God; if we must die Free fighting to maintain this core principle; then so be it!

“FREEDOM IS NEVER A GIVEN BUT ONLY ACHIEVED WHEN PROTECTED”

https://lawrencemorra.com/2019/12/08/putting-things-in-their-proper-perspective/

Clever Journeys

The state of Oklahoma has sued the Biden administration over the Defense Department mandate forcing National Guard members to get the experimental COVID-19 vaccine, calling it an unconstitutional and dangerous overreach by the federal government.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday, seeks a temporary injunction and a permanent restraining order against the mandate. It also asks the court to block a  threat by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to effectively withhold funding and salaries for the Oklahoma National Guard and Guard members in the state.

Secretary Austin ordered that all members of the National Guard and Reserve to get vaccinated against Covid-19 or facing loss of pay and being marked absent without cause from drills and training.

The suit intensifies the exceptional clashes of will between Pentagon leadership and states such as Texas, Oklahoma and Florida.

Governor Kevin Stitt (R) called foul on Austin’s demand was a “readiness issue” and that unvaccinated Guard members will…

Hebrews: Anchor of the Soul

“We struggle privately” this is so true and yet a gift as it offers us another opportunity to commune with our Heavily Father in that bare-naked suffering or our pains through Jesus Christ our being moved by His Holy Spirit to learn, see and understand His Truth which is all that matters not any approvals from others or the Ways of the World which is corrupted and fallen!

Abraham kneeling sm print

The unchanging nature of God’s word and God’s character are grounds for confidence in God.

I know something about this directly from God because once when in deep devotional prayer during my very painful trials and tribulations I contemplated from my knowledge of finite matter and this existence we are physically part of or attached to when I asked God please tell me how can this be understood better to know a bit more about from where it is we have fallen and suddenly as I lay contemplative almost sleeping a voice from God said to me, “God is matter not of this realm!” It was a beautiful caring and strong voice like a fatherly figure as I reflect back on it. Then when I heard this I became so thankful and overjoyed that I was given a better grip on reality and what is going on here! We truly are in God’s loving precious hands with nothing to fear but fear itself and our sufferings are never in vein if we are seeing and accepting God’s New and Everlasting Covenant with us human beings the Children of God!

So therefore I say with complete confidence that our wonderful Sister Joanne has provided this great clarity in mentioning this “unchanging nature of God’s word and God’s character.”

This is a foundational precept extolled upon us through the ages in prophecy and all of God’s word given to us through the prophets and then our Lord Jesus Christ Himself with His shed blood as the one and only sacrificial lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world so that we through His love, word and sacrifice are saved all in accordance with our Holy Father’s plan. That like His first disciples we should all follow Him becoming true disciples of Jesus Christ in fulfilling the Holy Scriptures His word and Promise!

“Jesus actually fulfilled the requirements of God’s first conditional covenant by living the perfect, sinless life. You and I can enter into God’s new, unconditional covenant of peace and restoration by Jesus’ good works when we receive Him as our Lord and Savior by faith.”

This Friends, Brothers and Sisters, is the story in a nutshell!

“We are anchored in heaven by Jesus Christ. Because He is faithful, we are secure.”

“Jesus alone is a strong enough anchor rope on our lives to keep us securely bound to the throne of God.”

Hallelujah praise God and his glorious Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Amen.
Brother in Christ Jesus,
Lawrence Morra III

Grace and Peace, Joanne


The writer had given nearly three chapters of exhortation, dire warnings in stern language. Now he turned to encouragement, feeling certain his audience would respond to God’s call through his letter.


God’s Great Promises

God will never forget God’s devoted servants

Even though we speak in this way, beloved, we are confident of better things in your case, things that belong to salvation. For God is not unjust; [God] will not overlook your work and the love that you showed for [God’s] sake in serving the saints, as you still do.

And we want each one of you to show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope to the very end, so that you may not become sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 6:9-12 (NRSV)

This is an encouragement for you and me today as well…

Before Thanksgiving Fades into Memory, Hear the Words of Abraham Lincoln

Featured Image -- 12562

Excellent and for me so timely and powerful a message coming from the past from this former President who is since grade school was one of my top 3 iconic historical figures of all time; and he lived right here in our beloved nation under God!  Or so it was, until the evil crept in and so many allowed it to devour their souls along with their advocating the destruction of so many others, with this Great Nation under God!

I just wrote this commentary for a another fine blogger who brought it out but now as soon as I saw your posting here I said, OMG this is what and whom I’m relating to now in this most unprecedented crisis for America; this is all so fitting so I want to share these words of mine here, but, more importantly this message contained in your posting, which is from my favorite American Abraham Lincoln; I’m teary eyed and I hope and pray something in this that I’m doing here will touch someone’s heart as well.

You hit it on the proverbial head! All these BLM , Antifa or radial left anything are only being used as useful tools or as they say useful idiots until not needed anymore then the hammer comes down hard and swift! Russia doesn’t have a Hammer and Sickle as Flag Icons for the reasons they state openly! Marx was an out in the open Satan worshiper and caused his own two daughters to commit suicide, so how would such monsters feel about anyone else? That is what these evil insane power gloated Democrat Socialist Radical Party have brought to our shores but the Republicans are only a step away from being as nefarious having allowed so much decay in America, they even had the House and Senate on a few occasions and did virtually nothing to abate it all, because they care about themselves and lobbyists! Lindsey Graham is a rotten two-faced minion of hell! Loves Biden he said during the early stages of the election right on NBC one Sunday morning saying I love the guy! Guess Graham got the guy he wanted in the White House! Birds of a feather no matter how evil or dirty; my Grandmother would say no shame! I say yes Grandma no conscience either!

By the way I’m a wildlife rehabber took the certification courses and used to belong to the Sierra Club went to some big seminars but when they went hard left and played a scam to just take down conservatives and didn’t mind all the radical evil the Left was up to along with catering to the Big Tech Globalists I cut them all loose just for the reason you stated they are so dumb ass to think they will win out for anybody including the animals by sticking up for the Agenda of the Corporate Machine and Establishment like the Bush family, Obama, Hollywood and so on, they joined the Nazis of America and lost me for good which bothered me for the animals sake but like you said if we lose control of the government completely which is close to happening then nothing will matter anymore anyway; the whole thing will turn into a hell in no time just like Banana Republics and other Dictatorships; and then the agony for animals and people will really begin as they rip everything apart for evil and ill-gotten gains! Called cutting off your nose to spite your face!

If the left had smelled the coffee a little while ago this would not be happening and We the People would have a stronger Citizen’s Government that the forefathers intended and be moving in the right direction!

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first and that man of sin “lawlessness” be revealed, the son of perdition.”

Keep hanging in and praying we have hope on our side and God answers faithful prayer!

These additional thoughts are repeated from recent commentary but do apply now too!

It’s the bad seeds and ugly underbelly of humanity that is being separated from the whole and that which will pay the full price for all of this suffering as well as the injustice; none of that will get by God, absolutely not going to happen and peace will come to those who deserve it! I can say with and have confidence that its much bigger than we can grasp onto to with our limited faculties and reasoning capabilities but that the final analysis is profoundly beautiful not sad at all!

“What Is the Origin and Source of “Good Things Come to Those Who Wait”?

Abraham Lincoln is most famous for using this quote. “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”

https://vimeo.com/112711051

However, the former president did not originate the quote either. This quote actually began with a writer who lived during the 19th and 20th Centuries. Her name was Lady Mary Montgomerie Currie. As when Christians use the phrase, the meaning in her words was also to encourage the listener to exercise patience. She used the phrase in her poem “Tout vient a qui sait attendre”. In this work, Lady Mary wrote under the pseudonym Violet Fane.

The passage from her work goes as follows.

“All hoped-for things will come to you
Who have the strength to watch and wait,
Our longings spur the steeds of Fate,
This has been said by one who knew.”
And it continues into the phrase, “Ah, all things come to those who wait”.

However, while the Bible does not use this phrase verbatim, we can see through a number of passages in the Bible that those who wait on God are indeed blessed. Good things do come to those who wait. The Bible with all its various stories has a plethora of examples where people waited for good things following a bad event. And no matter what form it took, the good thing was always a blessing from God.

Mary waited for a child. Job waited for restoration. Joseph waited in prison. The Israelite’s waited to find the Promised Land. There was a lot of waiting for believers then, and the same is true now. While one suffers, waiting does not feel like a good thing, but God does promise a good outcome in the end. Scripture speaks to this truth.” crosswalk.com

“18For as I have often told you before, and now say again even with tears: Many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and their glory is in their shame. Their minds are set on earthly things. 20But our citizenship is in heaven, and we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:19

“The Hope we have today and eternally.” That is the point isn’t it! We’re really only here such a short time it isn’t even funny how short as I see it now! So what else can or should matter more or near as much than knowing Him, and following best we can in order to do the Father’s will if even a bit inadequately at least during our short stay here we prove ourselves worthy by revealing our true heart and intentions to Jesus who will make us acceptable to His Father! He is the master potter isn’t He! Thank you Lord for being there is all I can say! I often have thought of the scene of Jesus on His cross while Dismas to His right actually speaking to Him and admitting how miserably he failed in this life, as I’ve watched The Passion of The Christ many times each time I have wept at this scene and most of the movie but this scene is the most powerful to me as it’s all about Redemption and how Jesus will redeem the lost sheep if they will turn to Him in complete humility and contrite heart laying prostrate at His feet in a sense like Mary Magdalene had; and yet what did our Sweet Lord say to Dismas in spite of his failures!

Luke 23:43 “42Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!” 43And Jesus said to him, “Truly I tell you today, you will be with Me in Paradise.” Jesus knows the heart absolutely so no one that deserves to be with the father will miss the bus!!! And no one can fool Him either! This is why this whole plan is so perfect and true it’s hard, but the only plan that would in the end truly separate the wheat from the chaff! The genuine article is found in all of this mayhem! My favorite word, that I added parentheses to here in the Scripture, that the world lacks too often and especially in today’s mad high tech hurry gimme mine world!

“Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and BECOME as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven..whoever, therefore, shall “HUMBLE” himself As this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”~Jesus Christ –Matthew 18

Dismas on cross docu

Absolutely is truth calling to us from the past regarding this additional comment I made today which has the potential now to be the final nail in the coffin of not only America but the entire human race which is hanging by threads as it were for all of its many abominable transgressions against God! So just by what has happened since 1973 1.5 Billion Abortions worldwide and over 62 Million here in the US alone, I ask what the hell has happened to human beings. World War II Auschwitz when millions of Jews were slaughtered and the world said never again; but yet now industrial scale abortion is a way of life and selling the body parts is fine? This world is on the edge of HELL! Mark my words if this world (humans) doesn’t wake up fast the horrible burning end with God’s Wrath will be upon it soon enough! Time is running out fast and Biden America’s Man of Perdition who appropriated 467 $Billion dollars during his first 100 days in office to exclusively be used to kill babies; half a TRILLION!!! And so many Americans and others around the world are talking like everything is just hunky-dory and no problem with this evil! We are in the realm of Diabolical Evil on an Unprecedented Scale now! This is going to end one way or the other!
God help us to help ourselves through Jesus Christ the savior! Amen.

God bless you and yours!
God bless America!

This is my personal story behind the song!

Mom when I was a boy you made me aware this song was your favorite contemporary classic and I always loved hearing you sing it with your beautifully trained God given talented Soprano voice!  Now no matter where I am or what condition I’m in I can recall those days hearing you sing this song that always brings tears to my eyes, and I know God meant for you to teach us with your devotion as our Mother and with your beautiful voice, what is most important in this life, as I feel it deep in my heart and soul now!  Just like this song says “you’ll never walk alone” and no matter what crisis or difficulty we may be going through as long as we have Faith in Jesus Christ, we always walk with “Hope in our Hearts” that will protect and guide us home to the Lord!  But as we walk through any storm, we should hold our heads up high, being brave and courageous, knowing that “He is always walking with us!”  I found this to be so true on those few occasions when I could have died; but was spared for His reasons or purposes!  And when I had to fight a huge battle on my own your support, comfort and prayers along with Lord Jesus was what really made the difference in finding my way through it all; to a day of rest, where I could hear “The Sweet Silver Song of a Lark!” Thank you Mom!  I love you!  Thank you Jesus for bestowing these miraculous gifts and opportunity upon us!   All the Glory is yours our Savior Jesus!
