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 though this at times 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

“THE SONG”

So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late

Not feeling well lately I retired to bed early last night having all sorts of interesting dreams but in the middle of the night an old classic song came to my mind that I was imagining hearing in my mind as I lay there trying to fall back to sleep.  When I woke at the crack of dawn the song was awake in my thoughts still too.

Searching through my wide array of musical selections in my archive I was able to locate the old classic that I’ve appreciated listening to at times over the years!  I think because of the sheer incredible genius and talent of these iconic figures in American Pop Music Culture, that anyone who listened to musical greats from time to time couldn’t miss, and surely recognize, the extraordinary abilities of these individuals connected to this piece of music as legends in their field; maybe I suddenly thought prophetically too, in that God does work in mysterious ways and speaks many times to us through others who create music and poetry or even write novels; in other words what we call inspired word is still alive and well in modern times just as it was before and after Jesus Christ walked the earth.  But, this one song that popped out so suddenly in my sleep was now immediately beckoning my attention like it called my name, so I clicked play and when I was listening to the first couple of lines of verse being sung I said to myself, that is why I was in need to listen to this right now, it fits and dovetails with much that is happening around us currently.  And, because I always loved many of the great musical poets and their lyrics along with the iconic names of electric guitar players, I said hold on here, this song and the two men associated with it the most, are two of the most outstanding recording artists of modern time, who could sing and perform on opposite ends of the musical scale or styles, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix.

These incredibly talented artists individually recorded their own version of “THE SONG” All Along the Watchtowerthat Dylan wrote, but each of them bringing fantastic artistic interpretation to the poetic words that I say looking back now were quite Poetic and Prophetic, in that they are very fitting to what we are all experiencing, living in a world teetering on the brink of gloom and doom, while all sorts of characters are trying to see how fast they can ruin it or even blow it all to hell if given the chance.

“All Along The Watchtower

watchtower web sz

There must be some way out of here, said the joker to the thief,
There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

“No reason to get excited, the thief, he kindly spoke,
There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late.

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

I’ve highlighted what I see starring me right in my face as words written and spoken by poetic artists many decades ago that speak to the present time!  A huge storm is approaching as the wind does begin to Howl while the Cat or fierce Lion is out there in the world growling, as he waits for his opportunity to grab those who are not weary and paying heed to the words given from above… Yes the Hour is getting Late, so let’s not be talking falsely now or be so full of deceptions and lies, even the criminal thief or the minions of the evil one can obviously see this, but the one who comes like a thief in the night (Jesus) who speaks kindly is saying here, not to be getting excited or have no fear!  But, He goes on to point out how there are those who are haughty, like the many American Democrat Politicians and others full of themselves, that are treating life and humanity like a joke as they continue on their path to annihilation or perdition blaspheming not just life, but by doing so they mark the Creator and seal their fate; but those of us who can see this be rejoicing that you are not counted among the many who run toward the precipice and subsequent abyss that awaits them.  But we know the hour is getting late so we must reprove ourselves and seek the kingdom of God as He is sending out His messengers on horses fast approaching to reveal truth that your Salvation awaits; you who hold fast to His words!

Now “lo and behold” after I wrote everything you’ve read to this point I went to find the Wikipedia bios on these two men to give them all of the credit for their past work I speak to here, but what did I happen upon; was a web page that broke down this musical selection and the very artists I was writing about so I’m including the link to this fabulous defining analysis of this piece of poetic, revelatory music along with video renditions for you to ponder.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Along_the_Watchtower

https://www.songmeaningsandfacts.com/all-along-the-watchtower-by-bob-dylan/

Here is an excerpt from a thorough analysis of this legendary piece of music which you should when you have time read in its entirety to “dig it” as they used to say, or get it; the whole picture!

“The final stanza shifts the scene to a city guarded by princes in a watch tower. To understand the song, it is necessary to understand the reference to the ancient city of Babylon (whose name means “confusion”).”

“Babylon has long held a place among many religions as a symbol of excess and immoral power. Many references are made to Babylon in the Bible, both literally and allegorically.

Babylon 1 docu

The people in Babylon had believed that they were safe from attack because the city was protected, according to the historian Herodotus, by two sets of inner and outer walls. The fall of Babylon came suddenly when the Medes and the Persians overran the city in a night attack in 539 B.C., attacking during a festival celebrated by the city’s lords, so that the normal watch kept on the walls was not observed.

The imagery in the song’s final stanza regarding the “Watch Tower” and the “Princes” come from a biblical reference in Isaiah to the fall of Babylon:”

Isaiah: 21-5

Prepare the table,
watch in the watch-tower,
eat, drink:
Arise, ye princes,
and anoint the shield.

Another site with full explanation and background including the Dylan version follows.

https://www.lyricinterpretations.com/bob-dylan/all-along-the-watchtower

Babylon and other great cities or nations fell to enemies that came with armies armed with many weapons of war.  Most times the writing was on the proverbial wall but the haughty thinking they had superior force and power surrounded by walls that they were safe; but in the end every one of them eventually fell to ruin!  Today we have enemies with nuclear and biological weapons of mass destruction that can wipe the human race off the face of the earth; along with even enemies now within our borders that seek to corrupt and dismantle our Republic under God for which it stands as it was founded!  But, the enemy that is most lethal and radical more than all of those others is something the human eye cannot see; a simple virus that if weaponized can destroy billions without a shot being fired or a single bomb being dropped!  That potentiality coupled with the master of all lies the devil are building and devising nefarious plans of conquest; but, God Almighty is going to utterly destroy all of them and cast them into the lake of fire for eternity, and all that is foul and evil will be vanquished forever!  Amen.

Stand true and remain vigilant upon your own watchtowers holding fast and true to the word of the Lord; therefore as you discern you will be safe unto the end and from all calamities or enemies you will prevail, rising above the world of pain and sorrows into everlasting light. Amen.  Lawrence Morra

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

Message to Laodicea

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.

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.

Hysteria Full Stop; Reverse Course

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

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

Professor Bishara docu

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Steady and True”

“seeking His will”

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

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

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

Shalom.

Last Chance to Wake-up?

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

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

My comment to the blog last night follows:

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

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

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

God Bless!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Keep praying and changing for the better!
