“Women’s Beauty Sin or Curse?”

The great equalizer is “Conscience”

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

A nice lady who was blogging about a beautiful specimen of a woman who could be a seductress and indeed had gone through several hardships over her feminine beauty in dealing with men or even in a love/romance relationship always being eventually disappointed, hurt and damaged but going on to fight the next battle with determination and a stubbornness to prove herself right. The blogger thought of her as a brave warrior because she kept dusting herself off and going on to the next skirmish or battle in life mostly in dealing with men as they relate to her beauty and femininity.  She asked why does the world look at this woman with contempt and judge her some kind of failure when it was the men and world that failed her!

Ways of the World docu

This blogger was asking what was this other woman’s mistake?  I think seeing the woman as not doing anything wrong was this nice lady’s misconception, as she isn’t perfect, so she must make mistakes!  The blogger continues saying, how in every relationship she, that most radiant beauty, was the victim by men and the world, how she was the one who was used, betrayed, abused ultimately causing her great suffering both emotionally and mentally; yet, the patriarchal world or society looks upon her and addresses her as a sinner!  Of course when we look at this circumstance clearly we have to know that we are all sinners, the men, women and the society or, ways of the world by which men and women can live by, or not let that become their trap and vicious cycle of try and fail over and over.

I believe this blogger was seeing this woman too much as a two dimensional being and agreeing with her failures due to seeing it as a matter of depending on self only; not seeking the higher calling for her being alive to begin with. This limiting perspective will only fail each and every time anyone sets themselves against the world and thinks they will find a way to beat it and come out on top by sheer determination or just learning how to fight the world harder, while perhaps learning the ways of the world better and go along for the ride. That will always lead to doom; and here is why in my humble opinion.

There are lines we must not cross regardless of personal perspective or even upbringing, because God will judge all human beings by what is truly in their own heart! What fills that heart is the sum total of all one’s life experiences, but, the great equalizer is Conscience and every person has one excluding the exception of a sociopath or pure evil which does exist. One must learn through life to choose carefully what actions or behaviors they display or elicit from others for that can become a pathway to temptation and sin which are the ruin of humankind from the original fall from grace when Adam and Eve transgressed God, who is God, the Omnipotent always right in all matters, no exceptions.  So, that is who we should attune our hearts to nothing else, not worldly fashion or promise nor the allures of fame and fortune nothing will bring everlasting peace and happiness to any soul unless it is through God Almighty the Creator of the universe and we broke humans.  It starts with humility and people today lack it sorely putting themselves and some others up on high pedestals, which is complete folly and some stay on that path thinking they are god-like which is what pagan ancient civilizations produced in Greece, the Roman Empire or Mayan among many other empires, which even went as far as human sacrifice in their evil behavior.  So yes, there is benevolence and there is actual evil in the universe and mankind is plagued with the dilemma of this dichotomy, the choice is up to each person, but, all have the opportunity I believe to turn things around before they are doomed!  The pure example of this is when God came as one of us to say this will be the only way to redeem the fallen sinners, if I God suffer their punishments and transgressions out of my eternal love, but, all they have to do is appreciate and accept this gift from God showing in their heart of hearts by faith in Him, that they believe in Him and will do His will not their own; which even while God Jesus was dying for all our sins on a cross an illustration of this forgiveness was made.

When Jesus was on the cross, there were two criminals beside Him.  One of the criminals hurled insults at Jesus.  But the other one said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”  Jesus answered him, “Verily I say unto thee today, thou shalt be with me in paradise.”  Luke 23:43 That criminal did a lot of bad things in his life. But, God showed him right then that there is hope and Jesus is it, the Savior who will judge and forgive those who humble themselves and have faith in Him.

Does the bible give the names of the two thieves on the cross next to Jesus?  According to Nicodemus, their names are Dismas and Gestas.  Gestas made fun of Jesus, while Dismas rebuked Gestas.

What this tells us is we are the instrument of our own destruction or salvation “through Jesus Christby making the simple decision to turn to Jesus and ask for forgiveness or reject Him and be banished for eternity! biblestudyresources.org

“Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, Vanity of vanities! All is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2,

Romans 8:20 says that all creation was subjected to vanity because of God’s curse. When Adam sinned, God cursed all that He had made (Genesis 3:17–19).  In other words, perfection was lost.  All of creation is now falling short of its original purpose; rather than working in harmony with God and creation, inhabitants of the earth have turned on each other and against God.  We still reel from the effects of that curse.  Everything meant to be right side up is upside down.  The chaos and insanity of the world as we know it are due to the fact that God has subjected creation to vanity until the time when it will be set free (Romans 8:21).

At the root of all vanity is self, which demands to be protected at all costs.  Self cannot co-rule our lives along with the Holy Spirit. God will not share His throne. That’s why Jesus calls us to die to self in order to follow Him (Luke 9:23).  Vanity is an enemy of the Spirit and must be constantly brought to the cross and crucified (Galatians 2:20; Romans 6:1–6). gotquestions.org/Bible-vanity

The Invaders; the Seen and Unseen

“The Day the Earth Stood Still”

“Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.”

— H. G. Wells (1898), The War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds poster docu.jpg

“Wells said that the plot arose from a discussion with his brother Frank about the catastrophic effect of the British on indigenous Tasmanians. What would happen, he wondered, if Martians did to Britain what the British had done to the Tasmanians?[ wikipedia.org

This was a very striking opening for a science fiction novel, especially considering that it was written that many years ago at the dawn of the 20th century just before the Industrial Revolution would get into full swing.  Wells was onto an idea of a new order of enemies that posed a great threat to mankind, enemies not here on earth like all human wars or conflicts had previously began and ended, but instead by unearthly forces that are so alien and not at all interested in making friendships but rather only looking to conquer, exploit, control and eventually destroy us the same way we exterminate any garden variety pests or say use a lab rat, and in many more cases the way we slaughter mass produced animals for food consumption!  Sadly, just a couple of decades later there would be actual attacks taking place on earth of the typical kind but on a most unprecedented scale when the 1st World War began, which was immediately named the War to End All Wars!  Of course that didn’t happen and we humans went on to have many smaller conflicts leading up to what then became the 2nd WW some 20 years later.  As these times changed and progressed to a much higher technological era along the way this concept of aliens from space became a more prevalent theme in novels and films as we are all acquainted with some of the major block buster hits like Aliens, The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Body Snatchers, Independence Day and many other lesser significant but just as creepy with Outer Space beings always coming here to rob our lives and planet of all we have to use for their own designs.  Even Television movies or series became very popular like “The Invaders” which had an intro monologue that spells out just how unfriendly and evil these Outer Space beings are and how they are more demon than humanoid or any close facsimile.

“The Invaders: alien beings from a dying planet.  Their destination: the Earth Their purpose: to make it their world David Vincent has seen them, for him it began one lost night on a lonely country road, looking for a short cut that he never found.  It began with a closed deserted diner, and a man too long without sleep to continue his journey.  It began with the landing of a craft from another galaxy.  Now, David Vincent knows that the Invaders are here, that they have taken human form.  Somehow he must convince a disbelieving world that the nightmare has already begun.”

Now over the last several decades what proved itself out to be as lethal as these farfetched ideas of sinister enemies from outer space we found that there are earthly enemies with an ungodly sinister ideology with just as oppressive agendas as an outer space invader only these are other humans who if given the opportunity will enslave and destroy humans not deemed satisfactorily indoctrinated or useful to their ends.

But at the time H.G. Wells was writing about such bizarre fantasies and as the world was changing dramatically from an agricultural based civilization to an industrialized one, people like Charles Darwin with his Origin of Species was projecting a whole new belief system about human origin and purpose and none of it based on God or previous Holy Scripture teachings and so new radical shift alterations of public consciousness and sentiments became major distractions from ancient truths proven out over thousands of years that were being attacked by things like the, “Scopes Trial, also called the “Monkey Trial,” a highly publicized trial that took place July 10-21, 1925, during which a Dayton, Tennessee, high-school teacher, John T. Scopes, was charged with violating state law by teaching Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.”   .britannica.com/  Encyclopædia Britannica

Scopes Monkey Trial web.jpg

This type of radical or extreme belief system remained persistent and eventually won out in altering the human race to a large extent not for the better but to its detriment and demise putting everything in disarray and a state of pandemonium or eventually a shift away from true morality and God given rights of man’s to a mind-set of the government being its own God or self-declared creator and ruling according to what the few or most powerful among us dictate; but only by their own selfish or at times even evil interests and designs.

Scopes Monkey Trial web 2.jpg

But now in retrospect we can clearly see that during the time period just after the American Civil War and specifically while H.G. Wells was growing up Darwin’s origin of species was beginning to get so much attention that eventually it developed into a flurry by the time the “Scopes Trial” came into view in 1925 and that along with the techno-revolution with its mass production assembly lines being in place to move people toward materialistic secularism with its accompanying increased belief in man or machines rather than God and these new science age ideas have had us going toward thinking evil would be physical beings not of this earth and away from the fact that Scriptures told us of the nether world with it’s evil beings the fallen angels or demons; and so from a spiritual demons verses good angels world of God,  all of that was now being pushed back by mankind while instead putting emphasis on science and technology, while forgetting the biggest evil is man’s own folly and arrogance; which led to such human monsters or maniacs like Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and even people now like Obama, Biden or China’s Xi Jiping the Communist lifetime ruler, along with so many others who operate as politicians joined by Dem minions now even working hand in hand with the Communist “atheists” as mentioned here by a former Democrat CIA agent,

 “Former CIA Operative: China Using Dems As ‘Useful Idiots’ To Spread Propaganda,”

who want supreme power over the planet and whole human race which is pure evil all being orchestrated by Satan and the preparation for the antichrist being installed as the God of the Universe.

“so that no one may buy or sell unless he has the mark, which is the beast’s name or the number of its name.”  Revelation 13:17

This all has the ring of New World Order and one world currency which is coming and as far as serving the beast many are already by turning away from Jesus Christ and the Father while they seek mainly the pleasures and power of this world and we all know who some prime examples of those sorts are in the political arena as well as industries!   Big Pharma I believe is loaded with this mind-set and the beast is ruling in the pharmaceutical industry, we saw how the cocky and totally arrogant Martin Shkreli, the pharmaceutical entrepreneur vilified as the “pharma bro” for raising the price of a life-saving drug by 5,000 percent and even when he was being investigated brushed it off I suppose feeling like he was playing God and was invincible.  Now he is rotting in prison like any common thief.  Many in the entertainment industry are living extremely decadent narcissist lives and doing many others wrong things that go with that lifestyle! There are many examples of how in the truly secular thinking world there are those that are living day to day with no purpose that only God gives to us who are fallen and so they live as zombies with a meaningless service to the evil one who can’t wait to pull as many of those into hell as he can but meanwhile using them as minions to trap or snare others.  I think that much worse is yet to come when people will be basically forced by circumstances and government actions to participate with the NWO control which will be when the mark is provided in order to eat and live, that will be when things are going to explode, just when the antichrist is taking his earthy throne to enslave the human race.  Hope this helps the conversation and insight of anyone trying to understand!

Bill gates and many other extremely wealthy individuals have slipped into a time space concept here, black hole, which now possesses their every conscious moment above ground!  That sentient power that many sense trying to take over is real but it’s a diabolical force of consciousness beyond mere human capacity and is working feverishly manipulating various key players in their giant global chess match which is bringing the human race speeding toward the precipice with one goal; to destroy it! It is us who are the prize creation of God Almighty the Creator of all things; which this alien and alienating force is countering with all it’s got to bring horror and ruin to all of this human civilization and possibly to enslave the human race gloating with defiance before the ultimate total destruction of life on earth.

A Planet of the Apes scenario only where AI are the Apes!  Yet he’s jumped into the world of politics and mind control propaganda in league with the Red Commies devising and planning big earthly programs!  Bill Gates is one of the last people I would trust or believe with my dirty socks let alone my life!  He’s crap on a stick to the devil and his life has become a computer chip an easily programmable one just like the programming mentality he’s cooked-up in his own head for decades; now a simple minion creature easily played and manipulated for ulterior designs by the Beast.  Gates has been busy at work with the completely atheist evil Communist Chinese Government building strategies to incorporate the most nefarious designs into our lives with even mass extermination objectives when the time is appropriate for population control in the not too distant future.  But, a recent article I read was excellent in how it pointed out that what we who resist are doing is opening minds and channels of communication to blaze those trails into uncharted territory mentioned in the article,  because in doing so many will come together, “the angels and heroes of humanity” to oppose all of this evil and utterly destroy it with the help of our “Glorious Creator” who has had and has the ultimate plan in motion always, and it’s all been figured in advance, there is only one conclusion, “Good Will Overcome” evil and the “Light will Prevail” over all of the darkest of forces and pits of hell!

Now we find ourselves in a highly technological age with morals lagging far behind the highly toxic mesmerizing effects of instant gratification and almost anything goes  decadence, where modesty and virtue are being stripped away as human qualities of soul and character at one time most prevalent in society; now being replaced with playing the game and getting what you want and more by screwing over the other guy before he does it to you.  A suit happy culture where the politicians and lawyers are rewriting the rule books and setting up the public for a fall.

What’s really scary is how a sort of Trojan Horse operation is in place where we have evil minded enemies within that are out for blood and the heart of America to devour it and then spit it out; they are such vile contemptuous creatures!  I believe the poison was injected into the society at large here over many years slowly then with Obama installed as the first “Fraud POTUS” and “True Enemy of America” they sunk their fangs in deep to inject the mesmerizing narcotic of seduction into the carotid artery then a pathway to the Aorta, Washington DC the seat of US Government Power, and this was achieved with carefully plotted schemes or smoke and mirror parlor tricks by means of the MSM and cultural shift rhetoric by social science engineers promoting appeasement and outright capitulation with its basis in the manufactured belief that the enemy is really a poor suffering peasant who is misunderstood and whom we should embrace; thus all of these Muslims or even Jihadists being given a blank check to nearly fill out as they wish while knowing full well their intent is to divide and conquer the American stuffed pigs(Infidels) in a bloodbath of slaughter when the framework is established to use our own system against itself, with all the preemptive rhetoric already in place about Islamophobia and minority discrimination or suppressed freedom of religion employed, in protecting them and their hidden agenda giving them privilege over the majority of Americans!  Even if that religion states clearly they’re our enemies; and then to top it off they take an oath of office not on a Bible but the Koran which is fundamentally in complete opposition to Christendom and the Constitution; which is supposed to be taken to uphold and protect it and this Nation under God which the Founders of America based the Bill of Rights and US Constitution upon, the Judea-Christian God in the name of Jesus Christ whom all Muslims say was nothing more than a prophet or a teacher if that?  We’ve had too many nefarious cohorts scheming or selling out for the almighty dollar for years while the MSM now drives their agenda to neutralize and overpower America from within; with what I can only term as Satan’s Venom, from the evil snake and serpent from hell that even tempted Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane!  Doing it here with politicians and media puppets is “Child’s play” to the Master of all Lies!

The Communist Chinese Government is like the H.G. Well’s Alien World watching the earth but in this scenario because China with it’s overwhelming human population and highly contaminated ecosystem have been watching with envy and carefully devising schemes and plans to take hold of America, and as in The Invaders television series plot take it over from within to become part of China.  So, these jealously awaiting earthly enemies are methodically moving toward the time that they can slowly but surely ruin America from within, then make their move with most probable Bio-Warfare attacks to take over America and like the Invaders Show to make it their world!  The Demorats waiting for the toppling of our system from within to gain the upper-hand with their nefarious partners, over “We the People” so as to enslave us like the “Planet of the Apes,” making us subservient to their Globalist ruling class will, and then with impunity crush all those who resist in any way.  No freedom of expression or thought will be allowed under their rule once they are fully prepared co-conspirators with the Communist Chinese Government calling the shots, and then AI watching everyone!  This is like a homemade ALIEN INVASION!

COVID-19 Is A Man-Made Virus: HIV-Discoverer Says “Could Only Have Been Created In A Lab”

GilmoreHealth.com’s Robert Miller writes that contrary to the narrative that is being pushed by the mainstream that the COVID 19 virus was the result of a natural mutation and that it was transmitted to humans from bats via pangolins, Dr Luc Montagnier the man who discovered the HIV virus back in 1983 disagrees and is saying that the virus was man made.

German Microbiologist Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi points to some very disturbing facts about this current pandemic SCARE!  One in which fear and confusion along with distrust of all our institutions has been injected into the worlds main artery to the brain!

“That the Western government shut downs is a completely wrong and extremely dangerous response to the Covid-19 virus.

Self-isolating the whole population is “grotesque, absurd and very dangerous. All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide caused by fear.”

The virus expert who is one of the most cited research scientists in German history asserts that self-isolating the whole population is “grotesque, absurd and very dangerous”.

All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide caused by fear.

“This is the incredible tragedy, because all these adopted measures are actually senseless and meaningless.”

“The life expectancy of millions is now being shortened because of this. The horrifying impact on world economy threatens the existence of countless people.”

“The consequences on medical care are profound. Already services to patients who are in need are reduced, operations cancelled, medical practices empty, hospital personnel dwindling.  All this will impact profoundly on our whole society.”

I recently wrote about “Converging Conversations” as Dots are being connected after having some revelation.  “Confirmation” was to follow in another writing just recently as we were entering into the grips of a global pandemic and even now a continuous confirmation while dots are being connected feverishly on a daily basis, can only mean one thing without any doubt to anyone who cares and isn’t one of the leftist propaganda truth deniers; that God is making it clear in all world events as well as the personal lives of many how His Plan is totally coming to fruition just exactly the way it was planned by HIM!  The most evil people on the planet are trying to head off the good guys at the pass and in so doing revealing themselves becoming more desperate each day!  They failed to admit that God knew all of this long ago, that’s happening now, before He created this planet and the Universe; so they are fools to think that this won’t end the way God wills it to!  All the stray sheep or even rebellious goats are being called in many overt and sometimes subtle ways, to allow all, their final opportunity to repent and follow Him as the time of the final judgment is fast approaching.  I got a notification about a new article containing highly accurate assessments of major global events or circumstances that are now unfolding which I include a link to on this page for your further reading about the facts of the Wuhan Corona Virus and the nefarious players involved.  One thing I realized without a doubt is that the Chinese Wuhan Corona Virus was definitely an engineered weapon to move the global communities toward NWO, but, apparently things haven’t gone as the globalists had planned while Russia, China and Iran have united to implement further plans of destruction of the West and primarily the US!  Bill Gates was to become even wealthier with his heavy recent investment into in Gilead Science for their flu medication Xlfluza which actually produces similar symptoms as the COVID-19, and we know Gates has been negotiating on numerous projects with Communist China for some years now as his foundation is working hand in hand with them and the WHO!  Along with this interesting bit of information came a report of a scientist Dr. Xiangguo Qui, working at University of Winnipeg in a Level 4 lab virology study center in Manitoba, Canada, and as it turns out had stolen samples of SARS virus and taken them back to “Wuhan” on 5 separate occasions.  Meanwhile, another scientist conducting deep and some secret research with viruses She Zhengli a SARS coronavirus expert who worked for years under Ralph Baric PhD who eventually collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, but her continued work at University of North Carolina, where by inserting different proteins and pathogens including HIV to create a hybrid virus that “can’t be vaccinated against.”. With these revelations coming to light are we to trust China’s Communist Regime at all about anything they say or do with all of their nefarious plans or objectives!  For example such as needing to actually acquire new lands in the relatively short term due to the fact that they have poisoned their ecosystem and environment enough already that there will be an actual mandatory need due to their 2.2  billion population; when this need to acquire new land or territory was being addressed even back in 2001 when Chinese Defense Minister Gen. Chi Haotian detailed to the Chinese Communist Party plans, even providing a blueprint how China could take over North America which would be an absolute necessity due to predicted food shortages as well as infrastructure needs which would get out of control at some point.  Gen. Chi, knew military efforts would be too destructive and defeat the purpose as being a worst case scenario to conquer the west and proposed as the highly recommended solution as being bio-warfare even back then in 2001; which they obviously took to heart in Wuhan virus development.

covid spores 2.jpg

Therefore, we have known the writing was on the wall for many years but only now the reality or pieces of the puzzle began to fit together for our enemies and I say they only did because those enemies were playing right into the hands of the number one enemy Satan!  The evil one has slowly and methodically worked to outsmart the human race using it against itself, the old divide and conquer via-a-vis in this case AKA Communists, wanting to conquer and destroy from within are his perfect tool, complete atheistic antichrists, as the vehicle to topple civilization through a variety of technological and psychological means all leading up to the antichrist taking his control of the planet and then destroying as many souls as he can!  The opposite of God and what Jesus came here to accomplish in the first place!

Here is a very poignant statement from a highly respectable and well versed theologian just last week in Catholicism Pure and Simple that I really love because it speaks to truth in volumes with such economy!

Pope Francis slapping womans hand.jpg

The first Pope who assaults a faithful greeter and child of God!  He’s no Pope!

“In news reports of the last week Pope Francis said he “dreams of a post-virus world without inequality” while also pushing for a “universal basic income” along with his new world economy promoted by Jeffrey Sachs. While these may appear to be noble aspirations – ideals which the world may applaud –  in reality they are the aims of atheistic communism now in the throes of eclipsing the entire planet (as was always the goal of Communists): essentially, the destruction of western economy in order to eliminate the middle class. This will then result in a race of subservient slaves to the few wealthy elites and ruling class.

Summing up; what should we consider with all of the current circumstances and cast of nefarious persons many of them powerful and in concert with Globalization New World Order mandates be actually aligning the world with in order to allow who or what to be in charge?  Please let me introduce a piece of old Rock and Roll and it’s describing just who that might be!

Barely Significant or Bearing Witness

“the decision rests with you”

I just read a very beautiful description written by a wonderful Christian fellow blogger about an annual natural event in her corner of the world that is truly breathtaking and deeply inspiring.  Also, her specific story reminded me of a collection of photographs I have compiled over the years in my animal advocacy efforts that fit this idea perfectly.  This fine description of hers triggered some esoteric inner thought regarding the why of life and purpose, which follows!

Polar bear jumping ice flows  docu.jpg

Yes these natural ebb and flow events such as this glacier produced iceberg/ice-floes which separate the long cold winter from summer with the rhythm of life on earth, have continued for millennia and never lose their breathtaking majesty like this ebb and flow event of nature!  This to me is a repeated message of just how awe inspiring and great God is to have created all of this wonder for we children of God to behold and witness as we being a conscious part of His plan BEAR a most significant position above all other life to respond to God by means of our direct interactive experience with Him through His magnificent Creation!  This I see clearly is all conducted and allowed so we can get to know Him and finally be with Him as members of the most inner sanctum, or be in the presence of God the Creator; as we now must grow in our understanding and appreciation of His plan and purpose by means of His WORD coupled with this process of EXPERIENCE in order to fulfill our personal obligation of thanks and love for Him, for giving us this Great Gift!

Just be careful of those Polar BEARS as you live in the moment of this great fulfillment, because the bears are predominately concerned with being bears and getting their next meal.  They are a magnificent creature of Gods!

The Faithful Servant Soldier

we are tested-to serve God’s plan

What follows is a brief reply to a letter written as a blog by a fellow warrior, who was wounded by life’s trials and tribulations; which is only meant to give respect and honor to him for prevailing and then above all for our Maker for providing this opportunity!

Firstly, thank you for sharing this powerful slice of your life that indeed crippled you for a time but more importantly you prevailed out of and rose above the crushing blow to your inner and outer life!  Loss is so traumatic and even horrific, so that can never be taken lightly, and indeed anyone who does isn’t alive or has no humanity within them.  Healing is a process that is real too and I see and hear happily that you have been on a long road to recovering and healing as a man who always had good intentions and now those intentions are incredibly more alive than before and have taken on more power and focus, a vitality and singularity of purpose that wasn’t there ever; like it is now.

In life we can arrive at a crossroad where things don’t seem to add up or things look so futile; and that the things going on in our lives may be consuming us or that the world itself is deadly, which eventually defeats us one way or the other.  I remember older relatives speaking of being in actual battle, wars and how buddies, fellow warriors standing next to them one minute and the next blown to smithereens, nothing left practically, and then the eventual question of why them and not me!  These are sad and frightful thoughts or realities that befall us in this dichotomy of life where there is so much good but yet equally so much bad, because in the end living this earthly life death wins and all things come to their end.   My dad taught me as a kid that faith is the key to making it through this what can be at times for some individuals a living hell, because he loved life and his family so much; but I found in time that he loved God more, and knew the secret that really is actually not one.

Beach head soldiers docu

Belief in that higher power the Almighty is a choice and every thinking breathing human being has to address that question of faith at some point; so dad did say too, that we are tested here Lawrence!  You see my brother, we are in our trials and tribulations period and there is an agony and ecstasy value to life that transcends all of this and we can’t fully comprehend it!  But, without the dark for the light to shine through how would any corporeal or spiritual being grow to appreciate the unfathomable, and the choice not being given of “free agency” would mean that life surely would be meaningless or of no consequence one way or the other and we would be nothing more to God or ourselves than lumps of matter existing for no real purpose!  I think you’re getting where I’m coming from here brother; yes it is damn tough at times and some seem to suffer much more than others, perhaps not by anything they do wrong but being a victim of circumstance!  But, those that do suffer in the heat of the flame longest and feel the pain learn and evolve to become more than the original version and like the tempering of steel the innermost characteristics are altered as they take on a new power and strength to forge ahead leading others and helping in ways they otherwise would not have been ever able to without first running the gauntlet; and in the end they did it for purpose; to be there “to serve God’s plan” as instruments of the ultimate goal to save as many as possible from doom or oblivion; which to me is a meaningless existence and then feeling that way for eternity; damnation!  Purpose and victory are ahead for those that will take up the shield of truth, honor, bravery and love with commitment to the purpose, the mission, as long is required onto victory!   You have been through a nightmare but you are elevated in God’s eyes now, it’s what you do with that, He awaits your decision; with resolve and new commitment to forge ahead and carry on trusting all to Him our Lord; with that nothing will stand in the way or defeat the purpose or you.

I appreciate the added insight and inspiration you have provided here to my outlook!  Amen.

God Bless.

Bold as Love

Jimi Hendrix – Bold As Love Lyrics

from album: Axis: Bold As Love (1967)

Anger he smiles towering in shiny metallic purple armor.
Queen jealousy, envy waits behind him.
Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground.
Blue are the life giving waters taking for granted,
They quietly understand.

Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready,
But wonder why the fight is on.
But they’re all, bold as love.
Yeah, they’re all bold as love.
Yeah, they’re all bold as love.
Just ask the Axis.

My red is so confident he flashes trophies of war
And ribbons of euphoria.
Orange is young, full of daring but very unsteady for the first go ’round.
My yellow in this case is no so mellow.
In fact I’m trying to say it’s frightened like me.
And all of these emotions of mine keep holding me
From giving my life to a rainbow like you.
But I’m a yeah, I’m bold as love,
Yeah yeah.

Well, I’m bold, bold as love.
Hear me talkin’, girl.
I’m bold as love.
Just ask the Axis.
He knows everything. Yeah, yeah.

A GIFT

Biblical Prophecy in the Most Unprecedented Time

for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first

What follows is a living testimony of our Living God working within our lives and allowing those who have ears to listen and who have eyes to see, that they will see and hear all He is telling us as He is preparing to return to a wayward fallen world sooner rather than later.

“Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3:22.

“Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”  Isaiah 6:10 ESV.

“But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.” Matthew 13:16.

This all evolved from reading a blog article written by a friend and sister in Christ Jesus.  I thank her for the inspiration and love to share her insight and faith with any of us who will listen.  Now with all humility and a contrite heart I offer anything I can through my inspiration to help any of you, I ask this in His Holy name of Christ Jesus.  Amen.

Yes my friend, no doubt these are the unprecedented times spoken of in the Holy Scriptures.  If we consider just the fact that prior to the 1900’s or 20th century the entire human race lived in a low tech agricultural based system to exist or sustain it.

Farm land

Today we live in the most unprecedented age of high technology and mechanization where mankind has been to the moon and split the atom, a time that has catapulted humanity for better or worse into a world where what would appear to ancient peoples as miracles or even witchcraft if  they could now see the things that we can do each day that are common place, like communicate around the planet or transplant a human heart and even know that viruses exist, is evidence of the fact that we are now living in the absolute most unprecedented time ever in human existence.  But now we humans take so much for granted and many become prideful or arrogant thinking themselves their own self-serving gods and because of all these extraordinary gifts of enlightenment they work against self and men in that yet they see so much more to desire, such as worldly wealth and power, they become blinded by the light of the “shock and awe” of so much temptation that draws the attention of the eyes, but not the heart; in fact these things delude and drain the heart of a desire to know and love our Creator by so many that submit to them.

Baby in mom words Psalms

Human innocent unborn life has been cheapened to be nothing more than tissue to flush away or dissect and use for profit; indeed all life is treated like some cheap commodity or just another disposable item that can be easily replaced. Perhaps we now have too much distraction from the basic truths that have always been and always will be.  But instead many have become wayward children looking to make up their own rules as they go, as they use the convenience of all this technology to live like robots or automatons moving freely through a day to day almost zombie like material secular existence, continually trying to get more of the same or possess things, not the Spirit of God!  Thus, “the great apostasy that was foretold in scriptures and by many theologians is upon us” as the churches have been emptying out over the last few decades and many are more content pleasing self, than seeking to please God thereby giving thanks in so doing for all He has bestowed upon His creation which is all based upon eternal divine love.  So, can anyone honestly say or deny that all I’ve laid out here doesn’t fit to a “T” what these Holy Scriptures say about the approaching End Time.

“And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.  Matthew 24:22 ESV

Wolves in Sheeps Clothing web

Isn’t there a ramping up of secularism and the march toward New World Order which will be more about totalitarian control by men and not about God and His majesty and rightful position above all men?  But would indeed open the door to the antichrist to rule the earth!

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”  Matthew 24:14 ESV

Gospel of Jesus Christ docu

Are we not living in a time like NO OTHER ever; where the entire planet has seen and can access at their fingertips the Holy Scriptures and sees the living testimony every day via the global media age even if they have no interest in Jesus at all, they bear witness to the proclamation of His being the Lord, Savior and Redeemer of mankind.   My sister in Christ is right, “unprecedented” is the word to sharpen our focus upon, especially now when along with all of the moral decay or hatred in the world being shoved in our faces every day!  All the while anyone can see and hear that the simple foundational truth of Jesus Christ being God Almighty is as plain as day in a most “unprecedented” rebellious world, now more than it ever was!  There is no denying it or denying Him for anyone alive this moment; but still whole nations of people do and many that once built churches to honor and adore their Lord God are being emptied out and used for decadent pleasure purposes in Europe, or the actual physical property is being sold for the profit so some developer can build some condos or perform other such profit making endeavors.  We see a world now that has sold out for, “the bottom-line” or “the almighty dollar,” rather than forsake all things for Him and follow Him to everlasting life and peace.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first…” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV).

“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” Revelation 16:15 (KJV).

“Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.”  Romans 7:25 (KJV)

“The scripture couldn’t be more plain, if you want to walk with Christ you must not defile your garments.  It is sin that defiles them.  We must work out our salvation by depending not on our own works, but on Christ’s completed work on the cross. We do this by coming boldly before the throne of grace as often as we sin to obtain mercy.” oca

 11“But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, 12and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?’ And the man was speechless. 13“Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 14“For many are called, but few are chosen.”  Matthew 22:11-13 (KJV)

3“So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. 4‘But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3:3-6 (KJV)

7“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this:

8‘I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9‘Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. 10‘Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11‘I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12‘He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name. 13‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3: 7-13

14“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:

15“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 16‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. 17‘Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, 18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. 19‘Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. 20‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. 21‘He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”  Revelation 3:15-22

“Understanding of salvation as an ongoing process of spiritual growth, would say that one can indeed jeopardize one’s salvation, but that it is not realistic to say that one has “lost” something that one has yet to experience or possess in its fullness. We continually endure spiritual warfare, struggling against temptation and sin and evil and the delightful thought of doing our own will, even if it conflicts with the will of our Creator. That is why it is of great comfort to know that, if Our Lord commands us to “forgive seventy times seven,” it is only because He is willing to forgive us at least that many times, provided that we, like the prodigal son, come to our senses, return to our Father, ask Him to accept us back into loving communion with Him, and humbly open ourselves to begin our journey to the salvation which finds its fulfillment in His Kingdom once again”  oca

“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.  Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1- 4

“Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.”  Jude 1:21-23 (KJV)

Oh yes, we are in a most unprecedented time in history, and it seems imperative that we should prepare our garments and be ready on a moment’s notice in order to be saved, He is coming and like a thief in the night!   God bless all of you who are aware and let’s pray for those who are not.  Amen.

We ain't gonna cancel joy.

We’re seeing the suspension of a heck of a lot at the moment. It’s discouraging. Heartbreaking. Worrying. But let’s boldly decide NOT to cancel joy. Or hope. Or peace. And lean into Jesus at this time. What is he showing you right now? Below is a video…

I’d like to share this beautiful and kindly effort with you by my fellow blogger and Christian Friend Ali. Her work is highly commendable and noteworthy and I was so inspired by this latest positive message from her that I was truly moved and felt the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ moving in this very troubling time with so many doubts swirling around the planet; but here we have Ali my Christian Sister giving me a shot to my heart of the only medicine that matters, the one true cure for anything that ails any of us and it comes to us direct from God in heaven if we just have an open heart to receive it. Ali is a motivator and she certainly motivated my positive energy that I admit can be dampened or skewed at times by the actual resentment I develop toward some very nasty people running amuck on this planet doing great harm and not caring who they pull down in the process. But let me include here what I had to say to Ali just before I realized I had to take this action.
Dear Ali, thank you for this lovely effort and dedication to serve our Lord Jesus Christ and you’re seeking His guidance to serve! I’m very touched and moved by your heart and work that you do in the community!
No suspension of our belief and faith in Jesus Christ who is always with us and to allow Him to handle what we aren’t required to, but to continue being inspired by Him to encourage and serve those in need where and when we can to also receive God’s love and hope for His children, for He alone is our Savior and Redeemer.
“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41:13

Post Script: A few hours after posting this blog article I received another notification about a very beautiful poem by another blogger friend which brought out the following response from me in just a few minutes which I know was because God’s will is working within us all, if we will just listen to Him in silence.  The following script fits I feel, like a dovetail!  I didn’t plan any of it; it all fell into place, thank God.

Excellent Robbie! Such encouragement is a powerful force for those who worry and tremble in despair, wanting to hear a voice of assurance from anywhere. Pensively they wait all cloistered in their homes, then while all shut in; they wonder if some good will soon come from within. But, at last a voice like yours breaks through that wall of fear, letting them know its OK to let out a tear; as we can rest assured we are not alone as surely the dawn will bring a reprise, when we all will witness another beautiful sunrise. 🙏🏻
God Bless.
This is such a beautiful photo with the words to match, my Friend.

It's a God thing...

We’re seeing the suspension of a heck of a lot at the moment.

It’s discouraging.

Heartbreaking.

Worrying.

But let’s boldly decide NOT to cancel joy.

Or hope.

Or peace.

And lean into Jesus at this time.

What is he showing you right now?

Below is a video I made today, for the community centre I work at.

I hope it reminds you you’re not alone in this.

Love,

“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!

Shalom.

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.

Albert Einstein pic

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.

Will You Follow Me?

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.

Post Script continuation Part II

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.”

“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.

So, as always God is in control and we are continually being guided and molded to suit His purposes for each of us and if we pay attention and are willing to let Him lead the way it will become all the more apparent as we move forward. spirituallyhungry.com/christian-challenge/

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.”
Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God

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
