Isaiah 6: Here Am I, Send Me!

CS Lewis world running off cliff sm print reg

Sister/Professor Joanne this well composed to me “exhortation” points out very well what is going on in the affairs of mankind more poignantly than the Scriptural documentation of how “God’s will” is being manifested in humankind’s “free will,” created in His image and likeness,” illustrated perfectly by this example of the Prophet Isaiah! The one question this brings to my attention clearly is whether or not we are living as “servants of God;” that is the imperative here, which any of us must come to realize about our own individual existence? Because if we are not; then we are serving things not of God and therefore “transgressing Him!” So are we living each day and moment seeking to do His will or not! But sadly we can observe too many are not doing this, and it is plainly seen on this world wide web of folly; an eavesdropping on the world at large!

“Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; not one is missing” (Isaiah 40:26).

“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.” (Exodus 20:2-3).

“Thou shalt not have strange Gods before me. Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth.” (Exodus 20:3-4)

“I command the rich of this world that they not be lifted up in their minds and that they would not trust upon wealth because there is no certainty concerning it, but upon THE LIVING GOD, who gives richly to us all for our comfort,” 1 Timothy 6:17

God wants us to understand that we must never direct hearts and our worship toward anything that He has created, or view it as the source of our life and blessings. Only the Creator, never the creation; is to receive that honor.

“Eerdman’s Handbook to the Bible succinctly explains the underpinnings of religions that were contemporary with and geographically close to ancient Israel: “The great idolatrous cultures of Egypt and Mesopotamia closely reflected their physical environment. Their religion, like that of their neighbours the Hittites and Canaanites, focused on nature. They had no real concept of a single, allpowerful Creator-God. And so they accounted for the vagaries of climate, agricultural events and the geography of the world around them by means of a whole array of gods” (1973, p. 10, emphasis added).

Our Creator of all things seen and unseen, is separate and apart from all creation, He being Absolute and Divine Perfection; so only the Creator is the one responsible for all that exists and worthy of our worship.

“And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them, which the Lord your God has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage” (Deuteronomy 4:19)

Apostle Paul pointed out clearly human futility of placing anything above God our Creator.

“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator— who is forever praised” (Romans 1:21-25, NIV).

“I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works. Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, and I will declare Your greatness. They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness, and shall sing of Your righteousness. The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works” (Psalms 145:5-9).

“Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness” (Psalms 107:8-9).

Peter tells us that God has, “given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers “do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2). of the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4).

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5)

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4; see also Deuteronomy 8:3).

Paul explained that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

These words here in this presentation stand firmly as I see them as a testimony of God’s presence and handiwork in our individual lives!
“God knows the workings of our minds and hearts, God knows how aware (or unaware) we are of our own motivations, concerns, strategies, coping mechanisms, personalities, characters, weaknesses, strengths, proclivities, secret longings and dreams, the list goes on.
God is able to navigate that maze far better than even you and I are, for God knows us better than we know ourselves. God knows who each of us is, and is conforming us at our own pace.
God knows how to communicate with each of us in ways we will recognize and understand.”

“God did not call on Isaiah until Isaiah grasped the holiness of God, his own sinfulness, and had received God’s atonement. Out of the overflow of his heart, Isaiah was willing to do whatever God wanted of him, he was willing to hear and receive.”

In a previous writing of mine I delved into this territory of “purpose and mission” in the service of God!

“Take that God given gift and make it a tool for God to allow Him to show you where and when to use it, so you make some difference in His plan not yours. That is where I am, it took too many years to get to this point the HARD WAY getting the bad lumps and things that nearly killed me and beat me up outside and inside, but, this damn Timex watch takes a lick-in and keeps on tick-in. SO FAR! I’ll add how I wish all this crap didn’t happen and I was where I was say 15 years ago maybe even 10, but, that is done and like a priest friend told me talking non-stop to him one day, he said, “what’s done is done.” I also asked this great Priest/Brother/Friend by the major shattering things that had occurred and inspired my motivation to fight though it all and do what is necessary what is God telling me He wants me to do about some of these big issues I’ve somehow been thrust into personally for some reason? All he said was, “wait and see!”

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.

Sorry this is the first time this happened where I had to split this  enormously long reblog response in order to get it through!

In my previous writing I had much more to say about this subject as I relate to it here today, which I think is worth sharing so here it is!

God is the unfathomable and mystery beyond all that is mysterious, the incomprehensible; and look at us so limited and frail what could we actually expect to do in challenging such an awesome power; and teach it a thing or two!! I laugh actually when I think how we humans get so pompous and puffed up with ego and pride that takes us on tangents of folly and at times down some very dark and dangerous roads. I’ve done so, I know what the hell I’m talking about here and only by the grace and amazing love God has for me I’m still here to talk about it, and, offer a better me to Him in return for saving my unworthy ass. He has the plan and I figure He is saying I’m still a part of it and He didn’t give up on me many times, so I better not give up on me either.

I just got the notion of how this world is full of vanity and we even trick ourselves into traps or snares of the devil almost automatically and God knowing all things; yes He is in control, so if He will not allow one thing or another, that is His decision and thanks be to God for His seeing all things and keeping us out of the worst things, and, perhaps allowing some suffering to shock or wake us up. I saw in this notion now how like a fun house in an amusement park with all the fakery and deceptive devises to play with our minds ad perceptions for laughs, we go into that house knowing there is an exit that we are going to come out of, because perhaps we’ve been here before with friends and had fun in the fun house, or we see the strangers coming out the exit laughing and having a good time! But, this life with so much Vanity is a Fun House that has an unimaginable number of possible paths or corridors we can pass through full of trickery and deceptions waiting to draw in the unwary or reckless traveler that will have no exit door or even a trail back to the point we entered by. Another notion comes to my mind of quicksand and how there are numerous pits of that stuff all over this deceptive man made crooked ways of the world, to trap any of us and suck down to the depths of despair or even oblivion.

004 Crows are smart

Crows are smart and very alert wise birds as I’ve observed them not trusting of men or even me, who the wildlife know and trust to a point; because actually many other birds in the wild get to recognize me and don’t fly away, but, wait to see if I have treats and so they have a smidgen of trust toward me. Listen to those crows carefully, maybe they are telling you and others something; they have a special sensitivity to this plane of existence we’re in now. Crows can be mean invading other smaller birds’ nests to steal the chicks or eggs, but, they also kick ass with the birds of prey who do far worse damage to the other animals, so the crows run the bullies off and as I see them they are a sort for equalizer and I like them for that, just wish none of them were mean; but alas we are in the imperfect world. Talk about this plane, I was going to say a few minutes ago that Einstein as I’ve mentioned previously in other writings said that he was “in awe every day,” and that “God doesn’t play dice,” with such an economy of words far beyond the way I am, he said there that he could see how the intricate design and proper place of things is such, because God establishes this order and leaves nothing to chance; and as you said is in “CONTROL ALWAYS.” It’s we who are not in control and screw up many times.

Yes, I do enjoy our natural world, but, I know this is a mere minute fraction of what to expect beyond this where there is no fall or curse upon all things because of transgression, in other words having perfection and bliss constantly will make this seem like hell in my way of seeing things, for example the sad painful struggle of all living feeling beings here especially we humans who create massive pain for the world and all in it!

683560363_8aaa66d2cf_b

I know in Scripture it tells us not to love our lives IN THIS WORLD, why; because it is fallen and doomed, so we should want our lives or souls to be where they truly belong and if we cling to the things of this world and start to worship this world or our own lives we will lose them. If we really yearn to be beyond here; and where God dwells, then doing that through Jesus we will save our life; that is the way! We have to for now, take the good with the bad, and do our best; so yes enjoying the good is fine, but, my problem with that concept is many people lose sight quickly of what the hell is really going on, and become deluded or even wayward quickly with the ways of the world, with this world and or themselves; then tripping into the folly and vanity of the Fun House.

I love how you remind me again of how God doesn’t share some or actually many things with us and I know why partly, because look what Lucifer did and look what many humans are doing in this world with power and high technology, gifts of intellect he gave to us already, that are immediately concocted or fashioned into weapons or means to overpower others and control them! Evil will take what God gives to us always for maligned purposes, like what happened in the Garden with Adam and Eve; they had it made in the shade, then the serpent tricked them into going awry taking something good and making it something bad or using it or abusing it, perverting what God gave, gives to each thing He creates its own distinct purpose and characteristics, but the master of lies wants to twist and ruin the perfection and beauty that God puts forth due to Free Will because genuine love can only come from Freedom of one’s own heart; and so many humans are now minions of that antichrist or opposing the God mind-set. He can’t trust us with so much! Would a parent out of love give to his or her child explosives, or the keys to a vehicle and say go see what you can do with that! Like I say, I see how we are given this opportunity by God’s merciful grace to even be so blessed to have this time to get our acts together; and then all depending, “we will get all we need or what we deserve” in due time!

I know you read this today but nice to share anyway! “The Lord’s calling, vocation, always presents itself like this: “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”

Yes, a vocation demands self-denial, true sacrifice. But how pleasant that sacrifice turns out to be, “gaudium cum pace,” joy and peace, if that self-giving is complete!
First of all we should worry about what God will say; then, in the second place, and sometimes not at all, you may “consider” what others might think. “Whoever acknowledges me before men,” says the Lord, “I too will acknowledge him before my Father who is in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father who is in heaven.”

“For all your learning, for all your fame, your eloquence and power, if you are not humble, you are worth nothing. Cut out, root out that self-complacency which dominates you so completely. — God will help you — and then you will be able to begin working for Christ, in the lowest place in his army of apostles.” catholicexchange.com/15-leadership-lessons-saint-josemaria-escriva/

It’s not really about what gifts one has, but, what they have done with them that matters to God in the end when all is said and done. So, it is a serious point here about our talents you brought up. What follows is how the Apostle Paul spoke to this point explaining it this way.

“We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.” (NIV, Romans 12:5-8)

Also, applicable is the story of the king who gave his three sons each their own plot of land to see what they could do with it and he went away telling them in five years he would return to see what each had done. Upon his return five years later there was some unhappiness as each son asked their father the king what he thought about what they did and who did better.
“the oldest son spoke up, “But father,” he said, “which one of us did the best?”
“The best?” the king asked, “What do you mean ‘the best’?”
The youngest son replied, “Which one of us made the best use of our land? Which one of us did what was best for the kingdom?”
The king stared at his sons a few moments. He answered, “You all did.”
His sons were outraged. The middle son cried out, “But you told us you would be testing us! You wanted to see what we would do with our gifts!”
The king nodded. “You’re right. I did.”
The oldest shook his head, “Then who passed the test?”
“You all did.”
The youngest looked close to tears, “But how?”
The king sighed and stared at his sons. He explained, “I gave each of you a gift, and each of you did what you thought was best with it. You’re grown men, and you took what I’d taught you about my kingdom and used what you were good at, what you enjoyed, and the land that I had given you to better the kingdom and strengthen its subjects. Each of you chose something different – as each of you are different and enjoy different things – but each of you chose something that was beneficial to my kingdom. It was never a competition to see who would do the best, but to see what you would do with what I had given you; whether you would truly contribute to the kingdom.”
“It took his sons a moment to understand, but when they did they were overjoyed. The king hadn’t meant for them to work against each other, but rather to encourage, strengthen, and work with one another. When they realized this, they were relieved, and more than happy to continue working for the benefit of the kingdom.” newspring.cc/articles/the-parable-of-the-three-sons

“Satan Fears People who put God in the first place in their lives”

I wrote the following in a recent essay that again is something that fits here as I see it in my heart; perfectly!

We all have the capacity to be Saints or Devils! Often people get the idea that only some very special persons can become what most people would agree is a “Saintly Great Person doing God’s work on earth.” Jesus did select and inspire the Apostles that followed Him becoming the 12 Disciples of Christ from a varied cross-section of men, some of which had been brutes while others more congenial souls who were hard working but they had no extraordinary skills. Neither religious, nor refined, they were ordinary people, just like you and me.

Overwhelmed by the glorious vision of Almighty God seated upon the throne of heaven, overcome by the fragrant spices of the incense burner, and undone by his own sinfulness, Isaiah cried out in despair. But God was already sending the seraphim to Isaiah with a coal from the altar to symbolically cleanse him, saying,

“Now that this has touched your lips, your guilt has departed and your sin is blotted out.”

Isaiah 6:7 (NRSV)

Prepared for the Call

Though Isaiah was a believer, and even a priest, he had not yet been sanctified to receive God’s call. But now, having been cleansed and consecrated, Isaiah was ready. Isaiah’s call was initiated by God by presenting a need

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”

Isaiah 6:8 (NRSV)

Isaiah, having seen the Lord Jesus and received His forgiveness, was…

Isaiah 6: A Burning Coal

“Woe to those who drag iniquity along with cords of falsehood”

gods-wrath-sm-print3 a

There is “absolutely” one thing that stands out here in this writing to me today and for good reason, when we observe a sudden lingering in the background which points out how many are using God’s Holy Word for petty and trite self-gain; which as I understand it is “Blaspheming God Almighty!”

“Why would we not instead repent at the earliest moment? Why would we want to be consumed by God’s wrath rather than let go of our pride and our wrongdoing?”

“Only a fool or a very prideful arrogant person” would do such a thing; which comes from the father of all lies and who was the founder of arrogance and deception just as we know he deceived Eve in the Garden!

I quote here to illustrate a wide contrast of God’s mercy as I see it. How it was extended to a prophet and a criminal; as God sees just!
“Isaiah’s heartfelt confession was all it took for God to reach out from the mercy seat with atonement from the altar of sacrifice”

The seraph touched my mouth with it and said, “Now that this has touched your lips, your guilt has departed and your sin is blotted out.” Isaiah 6:7 (NRSV)

Isn’t this again the heart that is evaluated, by God seeing what is truly in it? As with Dismas being crucified next to Jesus and upon his genuine heartfelt most humble supplication to Jesus, he quickly heard Jesus’ acceptance and approval.

Dismas on cross docu

Luke 23:42-43 Then 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.”

Some say this is all an illusion, and, logically one could surmise that is true to the extent that we don’t have all the answers to the endless questions or especially some of the much bigger questions such as to the Why and What is the Meaning to all of this.

Of course I believe there is a purpose to everything that is going on especially in light of the fact that we fallible or imperfect limited beings have a glimpse or view through the crack in the door of what is out there in the vastness of existence; and then there is prophesy to add to this equation that was and is long term insightful bench marks of truth if you will that have been provided from God to give us His children the guidance we so sorely need.

“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).

Yes God’s Wrath is coming and much sooner than most want to believe, especially those who are testing God with their defiance!

Fearing God is the beginning of Wisdom!

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10

“Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain.” -Jeremiah 10:2,3

Learn not the way of the heathen, and they are rampant on this internet, even this Word Press by those who play games with God’s word and purposes looking for favor and patronizing by others who are just as foolish!

Now this final bit of my spiel as a lesson to anyone who will listen!

I previously wrote this about one of the traps in this tumultuous world.
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.

ways-of-the-world-docu

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.

Watching in wonder and awe, Isaiah was swept up in the powerful vision God was giving him. The Lord’s holiness is the Lord’s God-ness, in all the Lord’s attributes, works and ways. God is in a completely different category than even the fiery heavenly beings Isaiah saw worshipping God.

Isaiah was left with the lasting impression of God as sacred and set apart, glorious beyond measure, pure beyond imagining, calling God the Holy One of Israel more than any other writer in the Bible.


A Man of Unclean Lips

In seeing God, Isaiah was flooded with a sense of his own earthiness, his sinfulness, falling so far short of God’s glory. All the cries of pain God had given him as an oracle for the people now flooded his mind once again. He realized he was no different!

Woe to those who drag iniquity along with cords of falsehood, he…

Well put; and far too many are willing to surrender to the crooked ways of the world, with many as I see it being bought with money and favor as Judas Iscariot was, when he put this world and its trinkets above our Lord and Savior!

We either truly Love Jesus Christ with all of our heart putting Him above all other considerations or we do not, and we are all being put to the test in this life to determine that!

I see the US government and all others as caldrons of corruption, deception and rejection of the Almighty; sitting atop their thrones of lust for power and the world’s rich’s! Gluttons they are and shall they die!

Romans 11:12 “and if the fall of them is the riches of a world, and the diminution of them the riches of nations, how much more the fullness of them?”

People are selling out in multitudes today, some would and do sell their own mother or children!

Matthew 16:23-28 Amplified Bible (AMP)
But Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on things of God, but on things of man.” Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. For whoever wishes to save his life [in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through death], but whoever loses his life [in this world] for My sake will find it [that is, life with Me for all eternity]. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world [wealth, fame, success], but forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory and majesty of His Father with His angels, and THEN HE WILL REPAY EACH ONE IN ACCORDANCE WITH WHAT HE HAS DONE. “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, there are some of those standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”

Many have already decided they prefer to gain the whole world or to receive all the world has to offer—money, fame, pleasure, power, prestige, etc. But they ignore God’s Truth that to lose one’s soul is to die without a right relationship with Christ and then to spend an eternity in the lake of fire.

Now to me, that is the dumbest and stupidest thing I could do with “my life opportunity that God has bestowed upon me,” not the DAMNED world; and it’s so simple and plain to see this truth! We’re all being put to the test and many will fail, while some will pass this test and move on into God’s presence and glory; in bliss forever! Can the richest and most powerful among us lead me to that eternal life? Never; and all of them put together mean nothing to me, I’m never impressed by fools! Amen.

God bless.

Generation

audie murphy

Something for people to think about Joe, especially parents with young children now growing up in this propagandized world to the hilt! Actually there is something to the idea that the newer generations are lazy or lacking something vital to their being able to cope and navigate this messed up world being resourceful and ready to take on any and all adversaries that would do them, their families and country harm!

I don’t blame the young people for any of their shortcomings as I see them but they pretty much have been dealt some shitty cards with this techno-plastic, fakery, smoke and mirrors numb-nuts world they’ve been brought into! I like to compare what I see going on with any current generation by looking through the prism of what the “Great Generation” were all about and what they lived like or could handle from a very young age on to their final days! I can say even from my own family tree that some of my kin of that generation were like Audie Murphy, guys that as young as 15 or 16 got their documentation fixed so they could walk on into the nearest Army recruiting post and sign up to go kick Adolph Hitler’s Nazis or Hirohito’s Kamikazes “sneak attack” minions butts, in order to save the day for America and their loved one’s! I mean all I got to say to anyone who is pissing & moaning about one thing or another is; could you do that now, actually lay your life on the line out of love, honor and for country as a 16 year old?

I can say with certainty, that faced with an identical dilemma as the Great Generation, right now, I know that all the young folks today are too busy getting wokism or bitching about some diddly-squat issues or hair across their ass imaginings; to even give a rat’s ass!

But, a huge question I really would love to find the absolute answer to; is who is behind all of this decline and weakening of our fundamental strengths as a Nation under God; I tend to see a “cultural revolution” taking place, being incrementally fed to the populace for decades, not to help America, but, to “tear it apart” from the inside out, so it will be on its proverbial knees begging for mercy! And guess who will pounce on this golden opportunity to “subdue and conquer” us all; and I believe that to be the same entity which has been very well behind this destructive process, a nation that knows full well, how cultural revolutions can lead to ultimate complete control; Communist China!

I graduated High School in the mid 1980’s. I can remember by Eighth Grade Government Teacher saying things like, “kids are lazy. Kids no longer car about anything important. Kids aren’t tough these days.”

The same teacher would walk across our small town each morning instead of driving to the school. Granted, a small town of 2800 does not take long to navigate. Thinking back, he may have discovered a way to walk up hill both ways; both to and from the school. I did walk up hill both ways, of course.

For as long as I can recall, grownups have been saying, “this new generation is weak and lazy.” Or, as least something to that effect. At times, these statements may seem brutal and unjustified.

Allow me to be creative, and make up some s**t. For the sake of simplicity, let’s say a committee sat down for a meeting…

“Divide and Conquer” the attack upon “Humility and Trust in the Lord”

“Be not afraid, for with thee I am, Look not around, for I am thy God”

“Fear Not For I Am With You”

You bring up an interesting question for debate for some people; but I’m not one of them because through my own personal trials and the path that God’s Holy Spirit has encouraged me to stay upon my entire life I know much good and Truth, God’s Truth is in the Church generally speaking.  If what you say were accurate logically this would have to conclude that anyone of faith in Jesus Christ would best be practicing that faith when going it alone and figure it out for his or her selves. That would be mayhem to say the least with anybody coming up with any interpretation or determination to be in the right and think they know it all! Can we say that many of the fine theologians and many dedicated lifelong servants who tirelessly spend or spent nearly every waking moment accompanied by the presence of the Holy Spirit, writing out from the time of the Apostles onward God’s directives and teachings to all of His children, have all failed in knowing God’s Truth and weren’t meant to convey all they were given to the multitudes, to help them also to know, understand and come together as the Church Family?

Going it alone is a bizarre thing, “in and of itself” and has proven itself to be such many times throughout the past 2000 years causing many to go off the rails totally down the road to perdition!  Of course a most obvious example of this was The People’s Temple led by Pastor Jim Jones who led 909 followers to their deaths and quite potentially hell.  That will be for God to know for now, but, He does want “us” to recognize the danger that is quite inherent in not following God’s word accurately, but also, how trusting that each of us by ourselves can remain steadfast to the Lord’s word and truly be listening to His Holy Spirit 24/7 365 days a year and not be tripped up and fall to the many snares of Satan that abound in this world, which is more than foolish, now more so than ever before with the High Tech world we are being “incorporated” into as a “New Way,” not by God; but by the most nefarious humans directed by Satan to have ever lived on planet earth!  The “World Wide Web” is just that, a trap and worse than any venomous spiders web; which is reeling people in “six ways to Sunday!”

I’m certain that Thomas More, St. Thomas Aquinas, Saint Francis of Assisi one of the most venerated religious figures in Christianity along with say C.S. Lewis in our modern time who actually went full circle from being a faithful Christian to an atheist and back, going on to become of the greatest advocates of Christendom; could they all be wet and off the rails actually promoting apostasy, doing nothing that is so pleasing to God Almighty, and weren’t serving God Almighty at all; doing a fine job of it to the best of their abilities?   The great point of significance that you bring out here is that severe corruption exists in all Churches even those that fall under the canopy of Christianity; and I say that has been the case since the day after Christ was truly risen; onward.

Thanks but no thanks I don’t need any from anyone here, I seek no approval from men the only approval that matters which I truly need is for how I lived my life here.

Those whether they be atheists, heathens or by name only a Christian all need to be aware equally not to be throwing stones in a glass house because the hypocrite and the fool come in all stripes and nobody is safely through the pearly gates yet if they are still here.

Matthew 25:21 says, “His master replied, ‘Well done my good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”

Common sense dictates with our very conscience that God placed in each of us for good reason, that some person in a manner of speaking sitting in some rinky-dink backwoods church having gone it alone and thinking he is on his way to heaven without doubt, but says all these others I mention of which there are multitudes more, have gotten it all wrong; so that guy I can safely say is a lost soul in my my humbled view.

Plenty of them too, that are running rampant in a topsy-turvy out of control world of sin with the Devil getting his due.

Because this Holy Scriptures tells us in no uncertain terms how mankind is as it moves forward in “The Crooked Ways of the World,” it is fallen after all; how there is truly a problem with human sight that is always in the ready to trip us up!

Matthew 7: 5-7 “5You hypocrite! First take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. 6Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces. 7Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.”

An extremely volatile topic right now is a screaming example of mankind’s arrogance and sinful folly which many are totally unrepentant about!  Actually they are defiant about it; with a passion and I dare say a passion from hell.

A Christian church promoting abortion saying it is good!  I say they speak lies!

Not getting pregnant is the only way to not be caught in the grip of an unwanted pregnancy; and if people controlled themselves better, actually living as morally upright as possible, sure there still would be mishaps but then the child must be brought to full term and taken in or adopted out!  Not up to no damn Supreme Court to say they can override God Almighty!  The Roe Wade thing was a political hit job just like we saw the Dem party do to Trump and the American People who voted him into office; the “evil works feverishly to exploit man’s weaknesses and divide and conquer,” and I know you realize all of this so why have the debate it’s a waste of time falling on mostly deaf ears and a “willful generation” who are in “super transgression” of God!

I know and believe what I do and nothing not you or any earthly power will change that fact!  What I’ve been forced to see and deal with over the last dozen and more years has opened my mind and heart through great pain and suffering, much more than ever before in my lifetime to know from whence I speak; this is “no cockamamie liberal arts university debate option,” we already have plenty of  the flakes and whack jobs that came from those forums like the Bernie, or Warren and AOC to show us what you turn into with that rubbish filling your head; the hard truth is staring us in our faces and should be scaring the heck out of us all, as its being in our faces plainly without reservation tells us without or beyond a shadow of a doubt, “it’s time to saddle up and do or die!” Additionally I conclude; what has happened since Roe vs. Wade has been nothing short of a “massacre of the innocence” which is Scriptural and beyond being an atrocity, it is an “ABOMINATION” to God Almighty!

Apostle Paul having committed murder or participating in such which is a controversial matter in itself with some faithful as well as theologians; in which some extensive research of the historical records and other evidence contained in Scriptures center on whether this could have occurred after the “Road to Damascus” or before because of the well-known fact that Paul was converted to a full blown Apostle of God through Jesus Christ as prophesied!

Again, I say my outlook of “no exceptions’ is meant to indicate that this “Sin of Abortion” is so serious that anyone willfully guilty of committing it places their immortal soul in the gravest of danger of eternal damnation; so that is why it is best or essential  from the get goes to consider it as a “no exceptions” situation, say in contrast to times of war where out of one defending themselves and their country killing the enemy is a horrible requirement in order to not be killed yourself “defending maximum numbers  of innocent civilians” from  aggression and murderous hell-bent enemies!  The two fundamental issues do not equate or have anything to do with one another and “Massacre of the Innocence” is mentioned in Scriptures as an “Abomination to God!”

People need to take complete responsibility for their actions and control themselves not allowing themselves to sin or in particular fornicate with others which opens the door to the major difficulty to begin with, which then sometimes leads to those who are weak or blinded to truth or not living up to their own personal responsibilities to commit even greater sin, Abortion being the worst possible end result!

Yet here we have a so called Christian churches moving 180 degrees in the opposite direction of the teachings of Christ our Lord and Savior which I focused on in this article. “Presbyterian, Baptist Churches Join New Coalition of Churches to Promote Killing Babies in Abortions”

Presbyterian, Baptist Churches Join New Coalition of Churches to Promote Killing Babies in Abortions

I say the Devil is having a field day and getting his due and then some now, with the political machines completely out of whack and many churches actively promoting abortion and many other horrible egregious sins, such as all who follow the LGBTQ rebelliousness; spawned from hell itself! I pray they wake up!

“Actions have Consequences” and some consequences are the “final curtain for a soul being JUDGED by GOD” to not be worthy of entering into “God’s Glorious Kingdom and gain Eternal Salvation.”  This is why anyone who appreciates their own life that God has given them and the lives of others, especially the lives of completely innocent unborn or day of delivery humans, should be shaking in their boots if they are in that dilemma of making a final decision that leads to death of the unborn and very likely losing their immortal soul in the process.

“NOBODY FOOLS GOD!”  He is searching all hearts out continually to determine if they belong to Him or to the master of lies and deception the Devil!  That is something all of us should be thinking about every day and you are included in everyone, but there are no unlimited chances or opportunities to play around with God and His will for any of us, and “failing Him is the end consequence” that will have “zero chance of reprieve and 100% certainty of eternal damnation!”

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

That Scripture  points out to me what I have said about having a conscience that God placed in us in order for us to truly work out our Salvation through Jesus Christ because we can with our consciences and common sense discern so that we will work out our God directed path herewith clarity and conviction while recognizing God’s Truth which abounds in so many of His true disciples who have and those that are serving Him not this world!

The global falsehood Covid catastrophe, to turn people away from Jesus Christ and the faith and to bow to the earthly power of the government or the many elite (emperors) and swear allegiance to this earthly system, with even talk of vaccine passports, with the wearing of masks to cover the face and thus the visual identity of a person; to make one insignificant and to show trust only in the great world system with its power and supposed experts; all of it a true blasphemy to God exponentially far beyond the worshiping of the gilded calf of Moses’ time!  Of course as back in the time of Jesus Christ just like those earthly powers then sought to mislead; this is all a lie, a satanic delusion to deceive and control God’s children with fear.

Secularism or materialism coupled with a culture of death is a dark scourge upon our Nations and we have to pray we can free ourselves and indeed our societies from the powerful grip it has on it; distracting so many people from seeing the plain simple truth right in their faces!  Instead many are attracted to corruptions, sin, decadence, falsehoods and outright immorality; an antichrist movement, which is the road to perdition!

God is there to help us with our earthly living and who knows better than God what all of this is about. He directs us to do the best thing if we are truly receptive to Him, and also trying our best to do the right thing.

Look and see plainly where our society is now, a place in which an entitled group of bigoted lying criminals that are untouchables and in return spawned new criminal acts using those previous examples as templates to get away with doing wrong! All those former transgressions should have been nipped in the bud and been prosecuted to the full extent of the law to conviction; “Rule of Law” must apply for all equally just like “Due Process” is a given or should be. We want innocent people not being victimized but equally we want the guilty to pay for their crimes. This is what makes a society good and worth its salt.

But now more often than not we’re in a place where the unjust or most crooked among us can be elevated to positions of great earthly authority, even a President; as has happened here in America. Now the united States of America can truthfully say it has its “Own Man of Perdition as President!”

Many people perhaps feeling helpless or confused and scared want to be led to a place of assurance and comfort, and they love to invest themselves into some person who comes across as sure and strong with that article of great need by so many, wisdom; insight and knowledge of the Truth!  What is the Truth and can we be sure of it when we think we have found it!  In some things we can with practical knowledge and scientific logic break things down into the component parts and get the whole picture of what makes a thing what it is or tick.

Something Billy Graham said once rings with Truth very clearly to me.  “Humanity has always been dexterous at confusing evil with good. That was Adam and Eve’s problem, and it is our problem today. If evil were not made to appear good, there would be no such thing as temptation. It is in their close similarity that the danger lies.

Modern social righteousness often differs from the righteousness of the Bible. Someone has said: “A wrong deed is right if the majority of people declare it not to be wrong.” By this principle we can see our standards shifting from year to year according to the popular vote! Divorce was once frowned upon by society, and laws against fornication and adultery were strictly enforced. But now divorce is accepted by society, and fornication is glorified in our literature and films.” https://billygraham.org/decision-magazine/june-2012/confusing-evil-with-good/

I think genuine humility is a great thing; I think of Dismas on the cross next to Jesus and his humility was powerful to the Lord because as we know he told Dismas, “Truly I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” Luke 23:43

Another man considered a Saint now, who has to this day a profound effect on me and so many other’s is former Pope John Paul II who was a very good man with a “humble heart” and disposition working only to serve God, so to me he was offering these same kind of insights and basic truths to anyone; telling us to give our hearts to Jesus Christ.

I don’t think God intended on giving enough morsels of information and truth to leave us still so hampered and blind to what we must understand to some substantial level in order to now in these most troubled times to make the mistake of giving up, or maybe never satisfied. I like you too am observing the near outright chaos happening in our country and around the planet lately seeing the shaky flimsy balance of societies, while there are those agents within that promote the same, making matters exponentially worse; how it seems likely that perhaps anarchy is right around the next corner as we travel down this road of life on earth these days. We as Christians agree that God has it all covered, but, He gives us so many blessings or opportunities to shape up and take the initiative that we should, to be “devoutly faithful” and in prayer often, so that we maintain our own path to salvation, but, just as important inspire others to do the same “by setting a good example” as we do it; especially in this topsy-turvy time of conflict and confusion where it’s so sorely lacking.

Here is an excerpt of something I was saying in one of my recent blogs regarding Big Pharma that I believe says something fitting here.

“An antichrist entity out to subdue, control, ruin and destroy countless lives and ultimately souls.”  With this type of culture at work around the planet with absolutely secularism running rampant, promoting and being facilitated by, “Big Tech” a “Pandora’s Box” and fast becoming the “Global Propaganda Machine;” this secularism being pushed now every second of every day on a massive scale not promoting God or anything to do with Him, but rather, “faith in technology” as God, and “Government coupled with High Tech” being our true savior, master saying trust the science and devils like Fauci who says we must flatten the curve, this narrative that’s saying “the ways of the world and man himself,” are the only thing this side of heaven that can help us and do us any good!” This imposter savior that is like the Totalitarianism we see in atheist communist CCP run China and other countries!

“Humility and Trust” in the Lord, are the essential factors to weather any storm or hardship we as mere children of God may face. As He has told us, we need to keep growing in our faith; and to remember this that our Lord and Savior said.

“Be not afraid, for with thee I am, Look not around, for I am thy God, I have strengthened thee, Yea, I have helped thee, yea, I upheld thee, With the right hand of My righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

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

Yea, He is with us always, as now to support, strengthen and guide us to everlasting victory!  We can rest assured of that, and know this world has no claim upon us, his faithful; His victory made certain of it!  And all that is unholy and not of the Father He will cast into the lake of fire when the final judgment comes; so there is truly nothing to fear, our victory has been assured and we rise up to the father with Him, our ever-loving glorious Savior Jesus Christ!  Amen.

This is what it all comes down to; “Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, {there} you may be also. 4 And you know the way where I am going. 5 Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way? 6 Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John14:1-6).

The death of our Lord is God’s way to heaven; it’s the only means by which we can live forever with Christ. Death, once our enemy, is defeated. Death cannot keep us from God; Christ’s death draws us to Him!                                                Apostle Paul said, “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better.” Philippians 1:21-23.

“Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord–for we walk by faith, not by sight–we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:6-8.

Jesus encouraged His disciples and all the faithful as He assured them that His death was going to be the means by which they would be with Him forever in Paradise. His death was not the problem, it was the only solution. So the Truth is our Lord’s death did not create any problem, it actually solved the greatest problem we all face being fallen and having the stain of sin; which can only provide death.  If Jesus had not been separated from the Apostles and all of us this way, by His death for all sins, they and we would die in our sins and thusly be separated from Him forever; which is too horrible to contemplate!  Jesus’ going, His death, paid the price or ransom for men’s sins, so that we can live forever in His presence. Amen.

The disciples did not understand Jesus at the time just prior to His crucifixion, but they did after His resurrection from the dead. They then went on and preached to all who would listen that “Jesus is the One” whose death and resurrection brings “eternal life to all who believe.” They no longer feared His death, as they had previously; just as we should not fear anything now in our uncertain world; even our own death, if we have faith in Him; we know we will gain life by losing this one.  The Apostles then as we now; have received the greatest Truth!

“Where, O Death, your sting? Where, O Death [[or Hades]], your victory?” 1 Corinthians 15:55

Let’s not pay any mind to upper and lower case “C” when the 800 pound gorilla of sin is swinging in the trees above our heads looking to see whose back it will jump upon next!

All thanks and glory are yours alone Lord Jesus.

Insights from Fulton Sheen’s Way to Happiness

Friday Rambles

I had a good laugh here when I read this sentence because we are inundated with them!

“I don’ think when the first call was made the poor inventor ever thought he was at the forefront of breeding a society of telephone addicted twits.”

I’m still chuckling here! You hit the nail I’ve been pounding for a while, right on the proverbial head; actually my head figuratively because just yesterday I thought I’m so resistant to cell phones and have been since they came out; I used to actually like to check my phone messages when I would get home from working at times up to 16 hours a day and then make return calls when I could, not this eat and sleep with a cell device; and yet mine is still in the older flip style, no use for a computer going with me wherever I go! And I actually practically shit-canned mine by leaving it home and off often lately, so I can just live the way a human being was meant to live and function, certainly not like some cyber machine which is what people are becoming; who are “more clueless and stupefied” as people than ever before with their “herd mentalities” and whining B.S. “Armchair quarterbacks or digital warriors galore,” but, like the old TV add when Burger King was getting it’s butt kicked by an “old lady” stating for Wendy’s upon looking at the hamburger, chuckle, chuckle “where’s the beef;” these fools today don’t have a leg to stand on in reality, so they “flip out” regularly, maybe like just flipping burgers or the middle finger; “it’s so easy to do!”
God forbid they should struggle and suffer producing something of value in this world for God’s purposes!

“Those who have a better grasp on history and artful facts than I do.”

I’d have to say that often times even those regarded as wise sages or the person in the know are flat-out dead wrong and in some cases they don’t mind if we’re dead because of what they profess to know; a.k.a. Anthony Fauci or Klaus Schwab to name just a couple of those rising stars or really falling comets; heading to their own deep pits!

I like how a certain writer warned us of this tendency to accept that so called experts always know best and more than we do, or in the thick of it have far more wisdom than we trivial common folk! I say “rubbish, and phooey on that,” because wisdom comes from God as I see it, if one is truly attuned to life and its intrinsic “God given purpose,” then God’s Holy Spirit conveys wisdom to whomever God Himself wills! I don’t trust the science of men and women per se just because they have “Credentials or wrote some books; for Pete’s sake 15 year olds get to do that through Amazon now these days, so I’m supposed to be impressed?

This man or author who I really fancied as a young lad because I had a wild imagination and liked strange spooky tales as many young people growing up did and still do, sometimes; was none other than Edgar Allen Poe who did put it nicely stating, “Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.”

The crux of the matter is absolutely in my humble opinion what you stated here!

“The internet did not bring us together – it has been used as a tool to pull us apart. Divide and rule is alive and well in the 21st Century.”

You shook my head in a good way to hear a real woman say this!

“I for one, don’t need you. I do not feel oppressed by the patriarchy, I do not feel I have been held down nor do I believe there have been any hurdles placed in my way as a woman. Everything I have achieved in my life I have done by pulling up my own bootstraps.”

And I had to choose one more hard truth out of the many I liked here straightaway!

“Respect is earned, it is not given out like candy. If you want something, then I suggest you work for it – don’t expect to be handed things on a platter simply because you are a woman.”

Caesar028_1601296212

Oh and yes history always repeats itself as far as the human race is concerned and evil most assuredly exists and is always devising a new and improved way to subvert, conquer and totally control the masses! Hitler and the “Rise of The Third Reich,” was just another attempt at that goal of world dominance just as China with its CCP are burning the midnight oil continually to eventually do just that! Biden, Putin, Ayatollah Khomeini, Klaus Schwab, George Soros and many other wonderful folks like them are chomping at the bit to get this historic long term goal to really happen! And they will do their damnedest to get it to finally happen!

I recently wrote a bit of my take on what is being fed to the populace and how so many opinions are being promulgated extensively throughout the internet and even in our daily lives in “reality!”

She was saying like some people I run into these days how she, “isn’t a huge fan of social media.” Neither am I; and don’t plan to be ever! Social media to me isn’t social, its trouble; and firstly it’s being used by the most nefarious globalist masterminds to ensnare the human race, and we should know as Christians who the real mastermind is behind it all, so “thanks but no thanks” to her offer of joining another platform she just hooked up with! The diabolical is actively working in it, thusly attracting and promoting more of the same, continually coming up with “a better mouse trap” and “we are the mice,” so therefore its much worse than a double edged sword, not of “righteousness like the Lord speaking;” but one of “great deception and mainly ulterior designs;” exploitation gone wild!
“4They worshiped the dragon who had given authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can wage war against it?” 5 The beast was given a mouth to speak arrogant and blasphemous words, and authority to act for 42 months. 6And the beast opened its mouth to speak blasphemies against God and to slander His name and His tabernacle—those who dwell in heaven.” Revelation 13:4-6

I know you have read this previously Eva; but just in case, I leave this excerpt above with the full piece; so if some other reader has the interest they can check it out!

https://lawrencemorra.com/2022/04/20/no-sugarcoating-here-its-way-past-reality-check-time/

I found all of this you said here to be very refreshing as a true reality check that not enough people are cognizant of or even slightly inclined to have the forthrightness and character to come right out and say! I got more than a “bang for the buck,” out of this and that is why I had to carry on here a bit!

Thoughts Depart

As we all know, there are certain things we cannot question. History, although written by the winners in any given conflict, is in certain aspects sacrosanct. We have been given a set of numbers, however improbable, and a series of events that are unquestionable because, well, they are and if you don’t agree, bow your head in shame, you will be called names, run out of town and labelled a series of terrible things.

As you can see, I am practising self-censorship.

Why do I do this, you may ask? Because I live in the vain hope that someone, anyone of you might have the idea on your own one day to look past what you are told and with an open mind, look at what you have not been told. I can’t call things by their rightful name because otherwise, you will feel obliged to call me names and…

Know That the Lord Has

Yes Brother Joseph but far too many people are following their own gut or self-fulfilling, self-determination prophesy and seeking recognition from the world and other people; thus minions of the “Ways of The World Beast System,” therefore following the directives of the “father of all lies” which began in the Garden, his world of temptation! Sure many say they are Christians and even many of the current politicians here in America, many of them RINO’s not real traditional conservatives in a conservative party, who are giving lip service to all who foolishly listen to them! But this is all part of playing the game and looking for gain; self-glorification or the life of celebrity, seeking fame, fortune and adulation; this internet is loaded with those sort of persons all seeking the worldly attention they crave; or say an ego boost while not serving anything other than self!

St Paul said in Galatians 2:20: “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (Ephesians 5: 1-2)   We should love Jesus Christ each waking day with all of our hearts! Keep Him always front and center!

This is all so true and as I see it humility is mandatory for any human being to be worthy of God’s grace; after all He lowed himself from the position and authority of God the Creator of all things seen or unseen; down to here in this fallen world of corruption with its overwhelming sin to save us, through His only Son our Lord Savior and Redeemer Jesus The Christ! In so doing He became one of us to suffer for all of our dirty filthy sins and evils that many people partake of, taking our punishment! If he was willing to do that showing the world such vast infinite love that He offers to us; I think we should be willing to crawl on our faces if required to prove our genuine heartfelt humility!

Accept and receive His most precious gift of Himself the Redemption and New Everlasting Covenant; that He gave Himself his way as the mandatory sacrifice in order to allow us through the Gate to Heaven and be in God’s holy presence!

The Imitation of Christ is a Christian devotional book by Thomas à Kempis, first composed in Latin ca. 1418–1427. It is a handbook for spiritual life arising from the Devotio Moderna movement, of which Kempis was a member.

The Imitation of Christ (De Imitatione Christi), first published in 1418 by the German-Dutch monk and scribe, Thomas Hemerken of Kempen, better known as Thomas à Kempis (1380 – 25 July 1471).

“If God were our one and only desire we would not be so easily upset when our opinions do not find outside acceptance.” ― Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ

“But he who would fully and feelingly understand the words of Christ must study to make his whole life conformable to that of Christ. What doth it avail thee to discourse profoundly of the Trinity if thou be void of humility, and consequently, displeasing to the Trinity? In truth sublime words not make a man holy and just: but a virtuous life maketh him dear to God.”

“Vanity of vanities and all is vanity.” Eccles 1. 2. “Except to love God and serve Him alone. This is the highest wisdom, by despising the world to tend to heavenly kingdoms.”

Often remember that proverb: “the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor is the ear filled with hearing.” Eccles 1. 8.

“Study, therefore, to withdraw thy heart from the love of visible things and to turn thyself to things invisible.” My Imitation of Christ.

God bless you.

Along with Bill Gates, Anthony Fauci and commie swine CCP ass kissing Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus director of the WHO, which are only the tip of the iceberg of the, “to be executed” Cancelling all of your contracts not only career-wise but as humans!

I Lawrence Morra III say this is how it must go moving forward or nothing will change and all of us will be looked upon and treated as dead meat, so we are at the “Make Or Break Point of humanity; time to Get Her Done!”

“The recipients of experimental COVID-19 gene therapy “quasi-vaccines” have also been denied “the fundamental human right” of “true informed consent” as they have been “blocked from obtaining the information necessary to understand risks and benefits of vaccines, and their alternatives,” it declares.

The medical professionals blamed the enormous damages imposed by forced lockdowns on the “leadership of this alliance” which expressed in the book COVID-19: The Great Reset their clear intention “to leverage COVID-19 as an ‘opportunity’ to reset our entire global society, culture, political structures, and economy.”

Just to jump ahead to what this article points out by these group of 17,000 physicians and medical scientists led by Dr. Robert Malone has initiated and will ultimately culminate in the proper conclusion to this Global FRAUD only if as the old adage goes Heads Start to Roll!

  1. We declare and the data confirm that the COVID-19 experimental genetic therapy injections must end.
  2. We declare doctors should not be blocked from providing life-saving medical treatment.

Dr. Robert Malone leads thousands of scientists in calling for a total end to ‘orchestrated’ COVID crisis

The group of 17,000 medical professionals called for an end to COVID ‘genetic therapy injections,’ the restoration of medical freedom, and accountability for ‘crimes against humanity.’

Wed May 18, 2022 – 2:03 pm EDT

You’re invited! Join LifeSite in celebrating 25 years of pro-life and pro-family reporting at our anniversary Gala August 17th in Naples, Florida. Tickets and sponsorships can be purchased by clicking here.

(LifeSiteNews) — A group of 17,000 physicians and medical scientists led by Dr. Robert Malone has issued a declaration affirming that “the [COVID] state of medical emergency must be lifted, scientific integrity restored, and crimes against humanity addressed.”

This Global Covid Summit is identified on its website as “the product of an international alliance of doctors and scientists, committed to speaking truth to power about Covid pandemic research and treatment.”

Presented by the group in a May 11 press conference, this comprehensive, brief, and candid declaration condemns “the disastrous COVID-19 public health policies” that have resulted from “a corrupt medical alliance of pharmaceutical, insurance, and healthcare institutions, along with the financial trusts which control them.” This alliance has been “protected and supported by a parallel alliance of big tech, media, academics and government agencies who profited from this orchestrated catastrophe.”

Furthermore, this corrupt alliance has “compromised the integrity of our most prestigious medical societies” creating “an illusion of scientific consensus by substituting truth with propaganda.” It advances “unscientific claims by censoring data and intimidating and firing doctors and scientists for simply publishing actual clinical results or treating their patients with proven, life-saving medicine,” it states.

The declaration goes on to lament the “catastrophic” results inflicted upon the health and lives of innocent people due to the withholding of “critical and time-sensitive treatments” and the imposition of “coerced genetic therapy injections, which are neither safe nor effective.”

The recipients of experimental COVID-19 gene therapy “quasi-vaccines” have also been denied “the fundamental human right” of “true informed consent” as they have been “blocked from obtaining the information necessary to understand risks and benefits of vaccines, and their alternatives,” it declares.

The medical professionals blamed the enormous damages imposed by forced lockdowns on the “leadership of this alliance” which expressed in the book COVID-19: The Great Reset their clear intention “to leverage COVID-19 as an ‘opportunity’ to reset our entire global society, culture, political structures, and economy.”

COVID-19: The Great Reset was written by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret and published in 2020.

Thus, the Global Summit asserts its mission “to end this orchestrated crisis, which has been illegitimately imposed on the world, and to formally declare that the actions of this corrupt alliance constitute nothing less than crimes against humanity” (emphasis in original).

Expressing the necessity to restore freedom of speech in their profession, along with patient autonomy and the “sacred doctor-patient relationship,” they report having come to a consensus on ten foundational principles (below) which demand the immediate termination of all states of emergency and vaccine mandates.

These principles also demand support be provided for patients impacted by vaccine injuries and death and call for COVID vaccine manufacturers to be “immediately indicted for fraud” and other government and medical agencies to be “held accountable” for their actions.

Expert physicians and medical scientists elaborated on each principle during their hour-long press conference.

The entire statement follows:

Expert physicians and medical scientists elaborated on each principle during their hour-long press conference.

The entire statement follows:

Declaration IV – Restore Scientific Integrity

A Joint Statement, representing 17,000 Physicians and Medical Scientists to end the National Emergency, Restore Scientific Integrity, and Address Crimes Against Humanity.

17,000 physicians and medical scientists declare that the state of medical emergency must be lifted, scientific integrity restored, and crimes against humanity addressed.

We, the physicians and medical scientists of the world, united through our loyalty to the Hippocratic Oath, recognize that the disastrous COVID-19 public health policies imposed on doctors and our patients are the culmination of a corrupt medical alliance of pharmaceutical, insurance, and healthcare institutions, along with the financial trusts which control them. They have infiltrated our medical system at every level and are protected and supported by a parallel alliance of big tech, media, academics and government agencies who profited from this orchestrated catastrophe.

This corrupt alliance has compromised the integrity of our most prestigious medical societies to which we belong, generating an illusion of scientific consensus by substituting truth with propaganda. This alliance continues to advance unscientific claims by censoring data and intimidating and firing doctors and scientists for simply publishing actual clinical results or treating their patients with proven, life-saving medicine. These catastrophic decisions came at the expense of the innocent, who are forced to suffer health damage and death caused by intentionally withholding critical and time-sensitive treatments, or as a result of coerced genetic therapy injections, which are neither safe nor effective.

The medical community has denied patients the fundamental human right to provide true informed consent for the experimental COVID-19 injections. Our patients are also blocked from obtaining the information necessary to understand risks and benefits of vaccines, and their alternatives, due to widespread censorship and propaganda spread by governments, public health officials and media. Patients continue to be subjected to forced lockdowns which harm their health, careers and children’s education, and damage social and family bonds critical to civil society. This is not a coincidence. In the book entitled “COVID-19: The Great Reset”, leadership of this alliance has clearly stated their intention is to leverage COVID-19 as an “opportunity” to reset our entire global society, culture, political structures, and economy.

Our 17,000 Global COVID Summit physicians and medical scientists represent a much larger, enlightened global medical community who refuse to be compromised, and are united and willing to risk the wrath of the corrupt medical alliance to defend the health of their patients.

The mission of the Global COVID Summit is to end this orchestrated crisis, which has been illegitimately imposed on the world, and to formally declare that the actions of this corrupt alliance constitute nothing less than crimes against humanity.

We must restore the people’s trust in medicine, which begins with free and open dialogue between physicians and medical scientists. We must restore medical rights and patient autonomy. This includes the foundational principle of the sacred doctor-patient relationship. The social need for this is decades overdue, and therefore, we the physicians of the world are compelled to take action.

After two years of scientific research, millions of patients treated, hundreds of clinical trials performed and scientific data shared, we have demonstrated and documented our success in understanding and combating COVID-19. In considering the risks versus benefits of major policy decisions, our Global COVID Summit of 17,000 physicians and medical scientists from all over the world have reached consensus on the following foundational principles:

  1. We declare and the data confirm that the COVID-19 experimental genetic therapy injections must end.
  2. We declare doctors should not be blocked from providing life-saving medical treatment.
  3. We declare the state of national emergency, which facilitates corruption and extends the pandemic, should be immediately terminated.
  4. We declare medical privacy should never again be violated, and all travel and social restrictions must cease.
  5. We declare masks are not and have never been effective protection against an airborne respiratory virus in the community setting.
  6. We declare funding and research must be established for vaccination damage, death and suffering.
  7. We declare no opportunity should be denied, including education, career, military service or medical treatment, over unwillingness to take an injection.
  8. We declare that first amendment violations and medical censorship by government, technology and media companies should cease, and the Bill of Rights be upheld.
  9. We declare that Pfizer, Moderna, BioNTech, Janssen, Astra Zeneca, and their enablers, withheld and willfully omitted safety and effectiveness information from patients and physicians, and should be immediately indicted for fraud.
  10. We declare government and medical agencies must be held accountable.

Congressman Makes EXTRAORDINARY Claim About UFO Wreckage

“I’ve been told by multiple sources we have recovered something from these crafts or objects”

This article states; “By sheer mathematics, it’s impossible that we are the only “life” in the cosmos.  The length of time that our universe has existed, and what we know about the life cycles of our own planet, pretty much seal the deal:  There has to be somebody, or something else out there.”

“But are they paying us a visit?  Just ahead of an unprecedented congressional hearing on the subject of UFO’s, one Congressman is making an astounding claim.”

Well this person trapped himself with this statement!  Because with the supposed length of time that the universe has existed logic would dictate that if this writer’s statement were true then there would be evidence and irrefutable proof lying all over the place along with more superior beings than us by hundreds of millions of year’s right in our faces; even controlling us like so many cattle!

Rep. Tim Burchett – a long term advocate for disclosure – told The Sun Online he has been informed by reliable sources that “material” has been recovered from the objects or craft that have been reported in skies over the US.

Burchett’s story was solid.

The Tennessee Republican declined to elaborate further as he said the information had been passed to him in a “classified setting”.

“I’ve been told by multiple sources we have recovered something from these [crafts or objects],” Mr Burchett told The Sun Online.”

Right, and I won’t hold my breath waiting for this absolute “Something Recovered!” Ah-ha some interesting STUFF!

Then a reader says the following which I think is a good point; “Well, consider this. If UFOs and space aliens actually do exist, then everything in the Bible is utterly wrong. Which do you want to believe in and trust more? The Word of God or the word of a Congressman?”

Do you want to believe in these things or God?

To which yet another reader had this in response; “The Bible was written 2,000 years ago and the people of Earth at that time were not ready to hear that we are not alone in the cosmos. We are now ready to join the intergalactic family. All that the Bible states is how the people of Earth should treat each other and that God will be there for us if we just ask it of him.”

My response to both of these gentlemen respectively is this!

This is all God’s plan and all the rubbish about aliens is just that; so many people don’t believe in God now and would rather accept the word of some jerk or, follow the science jerks a.k.a. Fauci sorts; ya know like the fraud pandemic hoaxers!

Even Albert Einstein stated that “God doesn’t Roll Dice.” But in his theoretical physics going beyond a 4th dimension which he clearly stated was wrong, as yet some try to do with Quantum Physics and parallel universes and so on is sheer folly; “only God knows all and is the End All,” so science will never fill in all the gaps or lack of understanding humans have in figuring out what “only God knows!”  “It’s God’s Plan; so we can only know what He predestined us to know period! With camera phones all over the planet we should see all these aliens stopping by daily; for cripes sake people are so out to lunch!!!! These crack pots are on a fool’s errand! Good luck with that “turnips!” Hope you get back on ya truck! I’ll stick with God’s plan!

“Wrong you are very lacking in understanding what the Bible says, and you should read the whole thing then come back, because you are dead wrong in what you said! Earth is not being prepared for the big awakening with all the other beings, as you seem to think; quite antichrist in what you push; and Christ is the only way to God, you can dance around that all you want, but, you fail totally! Free Will was put in play and “God’s children” will be united in Paradise with God and all others will be separated and in hell! You are lost!

‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life’

Keep trying though and eventually you either wake up in time or you don’t!

Your Free Will and Decision; the choice is yours!

Congressman Makes EXTRAORDINARY Claim About UFO Wreckage
By
Paul Duke -May 17, 2022

One of the most pondered questions in all of the universe has long been whether or not humanity is alone.

By sheer mathematics, it’s impossible that we are the only “life” in the cosmos.  The length of time that our universe has existed, and what we know about the life cycles of our own planet, pretty much seal the deal:  There has to be somebody, or something else out there.

But are they paying us a visit?  Just ahead of an unprecedented congressional hearing on the subject of UFO’s, one Congressman is making an astounding claim. 

Rep. Tim Burchett – a long term advocate for disclosure – told The Sun Online he has been informed by reliable sources that “material” has been recovered from the objects or craft that have been reported in skies over the US.

Burchett’s story was solid.

The Tennessee Republican declined to elaborate further as he said the information had been passed to him in a “classified setting”.

“I’ve been told by multiple sources we have recovered something from these [crafts or objects],” Mr Burchett told The Sun Online.

The news is sure to pique the interest of the nation’s rather large UFO community, particularly on account of their continued concerns about an imminent “disclosure” narrative playing out at the highest levels of government.

“Fruity little club.” That sounds right to me and then much worse too, as we participate in a public forum where every fruit-loop or mentally deranged trigger happy rabble-rouse minion can shoot off their face which is fine by me, but, it’s the targeting and evil involved with many of these “fruitcakes” that is in the realm of “criminal harassment;” there is such a person that has followed me to this site and many others after blocking her as you well know; but that is beyond sick and stupid, because it can lead to a “law suit” being filed to fix her wagon!

And that is why I have no Facebook account or any of those other dubious platforms! But then these same screwed-up mindset freaks even do it here on Word Press because they are totally trolls and mental; some even diabolical! So this ties in to what you say you’re attempting to do, but the big question is how do you block garbage pail people when the platform doesn’t make sure they are truly blocked; and there is no way! Because they can assume other accounts or identities to gain access to your routine and use tactics to keep at the harassment; as their mental illness deepens! A cyber forensic detective can put their devious activity together to be presented in a court of law; what’s the saying, give them enough rope and yup, they hung themselves!

My point is there is so much unnecessary information and outright bullshit coming at us on this internet continually, then those rabble-rouse freaks add to this mayhem with their own personal deployment of adding havoc to an already impossible diarrhea of useless or unneeded, and with me unwanted information, that is either gibberish or meaningless as I see it; because I do have my own taste and interests so that’s it; all else is a waste of time!

If you figure out a way to “shunt” all unwanted info and people from our view or “consciousness,” please patent that and I’ll be in line buying it ASAP!

God bless.

Pictured; What do you see?

For the past 20 years, I’ve been laboring on a project that few would spend time doing. I’ve been learning how to turn down the area of my brain that controls discernment. Yes, working at not seeing more than I have to see. Please hang in there. I’m not kidding.

Why would anyone do such a thing? Why do I find it important to filter out and cancel out some information; information not intended for me anyway? Because, that s**t gets old. And, like I said. It’s not for me. Odds are it’s not for you either.

Some people invest their time and energy simply to send a message. Not a text or email message, but a message of symbolism. Who would invest their valuable time doing such a thing? Well, possibly a creative individual or someone of great importance. Or, more often than naught…
