When I Speak of My Faith What Should That Mean

It is all about our SOULS

Sure we can say we support the Pope but what does that mean?  That depends on the context of the statement!  But regardless of any context we must all remember even devout Catholics that the Pope is still only a man and a sinner, his works, deeds and religiousness will not get him through the gates of heaven.   “None are righteous, no, not even one!”

As we know many do not whether outside of the Catholic Church or even inside it lately; Vatican II stirred the pot for sure!  The case in point may be presently that there is some serious interference, and actual division is growing not subsiding from that point when I began to see a problem in the Vatican a few years ago when I sent the Pope a very urgent letter regarding severe political corruption taking place in my locale that could only be on a diabolical scale of reference.  Time will tell won’t it, in regard to his not responding not even a thank you for asking for his advice!  In the least my bringing this up may serve as a footnote “to us all that we should be very careful to take care” in these times of upheaval and division.  Division in the church has been there since the beginning and has only grown worse over the years, we see that clearly by the multitude of variations of Christianity out there don’t we.  Men have taken God’s word and rules and bent them to fit their own devices or even purpose!

Perhaps I was seeking to accomplish this with the political; “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone.  If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.  But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses.  If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church.  And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.” Matthew 18:15-17

“Every biblical leader stood up against evil and many even lost their lives for speaking against it.  There is a reason Jesus says true believers will be hated and persecuted. If you desire to live a godly life you will be persecuted and there is no way around it.  Stop being part of the world, expose it instead and save lives.  The person who truly loves Christ is the one who’s going to stand up for Christ no matter if they lose friends, family, or if the world hates us. The people who hate Christ are going to read this and say, “stop judging.” biblereasons

“You adulterers!  Don’t you know that friendship with the world means hostility with God?  So whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God.” James 4:4

“Stop loving the world and the things that are in the world.  If anyone persists in loving the world, the Father’s love is not in him.” 1 John 2:15

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” John 4: 1

I say now, because we who call ourselves Christians or true children of God must with our whole heart discern all these many things before us in our daily lives; we must remember at all times this Holy Scripture as we make our way along our paths!

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:21-23

It’s not about all warm and fuzzy and doing what so many so called Christians that accept the ways of the world pronounce as their mantra; “don’t judge others.”  Even when the Pope has said this we must be careful to not think he is giving license to whatever!  And, those that stating in such a way are obviously inviting all manner of sin and regression from God’s word!  They forget perhaps just how critical things really are or they prefer to satisfy the world and its ways for recognition from other men and not from God who is the JUDGE!

Again, I ask that we emphasize with Holy Scripture to keep in the front of our minds and deep within our hearts what is most vital for our immortal souls, and forget our bodies and material life here!  To God these are all gone in the twinkling of an eye!  It is all about our SOULS!

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” John 4: 1

“Stop loving the world and the things that are in the world. If anyone persists in loving the world, the Father’s love is not in him.” 1 John 2:15

“No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons.  You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.”      1 Corinthians 10:20-21

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:20

My purpose right here and right now sisters and brothers is that my thoughts and words on this post make a difference in saving even one soul out there in the tumultuous man driven world of sin!  That is my only reason for bringing this to the table in a manner of speaking, not for recognition, praise, friendship or getting hugs and kisses from anyone!  My heart sees a troubled and horrifyingly sinful world and truly hopes in all earnest to see many saved by God through Jesus Christ; as many are being deceived outright, and if I am His instrument at any given moment of my life even if doing so takes my life, so be it; I’m honored.  I of course hope in doing such that I only do His will because that is all that matters and is all that will save me!  Through Jesus Christ my Lord, Savior and Redeemer, Amen!

Brother in Christ,

It Was Global Warming Now It’s Climate Change?

“Should we start planning for continental drift”

It’s all BS for stupid so called progressive idiots that actually think we can or should try to effectively alter the cosmic effects of the Sun and the Earth’s core if they want to really prevent future catastrophe, because that is what actually rules the planets weather and landscape, and human activity is like the fart of a flea in the wind in comparison to how much we can change any of it.  “Should we start planning for continental drift” in advance too and spend trillions on predicting which coastlines will be under the ocean and which ones will rise out of the oceans and make building codes conform to such studies?  This is all liberal mental midget bullshit!

But all this other BS about Global Warming now converted to Climate Change because the truth was starting to be quite obvious that the promoters of Global Warming were just that; PROMOTERS!  Smoke and Mirror Bullshit!  Politics and big Money or Elitist agendas are always behind these propaganda curves, they nearly own all the media and now with smart phones which are making people even less smart, the cat is out of the bag to manipulate the masses into submission!

JUNK SCIENCE is the left’s tool but the truth is that the immense power of Nature or the Planetary Cosmic Forces will slap down any, even major fluctuation in CO2 or anything mankind dishes out to pollute the atmosphere!  Will the human race be around to even see the massive changes that will come regardless of what humans do or don’t do which is more predictable; I rather doubt it, because humans will kill themselves off long before the next Ice Age or other Global Catastrophe that Nature dishes out and has through the eons!  It’s all a moot point and waste of time and energy to play this political game that benefits select groups and does nothing to alter the future!

Marc Morano says it best and truthfully, “In his best-selling book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change, climate skeptic Marc Morano shares the facts you haven’t been told and argues that the bad news about the Earth’s climate is wrong!”

“Antarctica is gaining ice, not losing it. CO2 levels are actually 10 times lower today than they were thousands of years ago, and severe weather is declining not getting worse.” 

And Morano says, “your tax dollars going to fight climate change are being wasted.”  The book also is also able to point out that even using all the best data and theories that the Climate Accord is going by it with all of its suggestions would postpone any Climate Change by about 4 years and would cost the world 100 Trillion dollars!  To me this is sheer stupidity; or is it really the rich getting richer playing the public and masses to be pawns in their agenda of limiting population and making more money for themselves in the process!

Coastal inundations are a reality and always have been on earth and nothing we humans do with regard to CO2 is going to change any of it!  JUNK SCIENCE and leftist propaganda is all they are spewing and wasting lots of time and energy that would be better spent coming up with what people will be able to eat in the next few centuries!  Especially in countries where the population is rampant and already an issue!  That is a more practical and sensible concern and all the hocus-pocus about Climate Change which was called Global Warming until that became obviously a joke as temperatures are also falling in many areas of the globe!  Author Marc Morano and many other experts have shown how the data have been faked or altered.  “Climate scientists used to say winters would become a thing of the past because of climate change.”  The winters where I live have gotten colder and longer while more snowfall is now a predominate factor in some areas across the Nation!

If we are foolish enough to listen to the lies and follow the agenda of the left, we will all be living in a communist world with those leftist elite controlling everything we do and think!

Just Because; How Much is One Man Supposed to Take!

Just Because; I’ve got a Cause

There’s only one thing worse than a Rebel without a cause; a Rebel with a Cause!

“I’m a Rebel and I’ve got a Cause!”

Lawrence Morra

Update: This is the Deal!

Not all rebels are cut from the same cloth.  Wasn’t Jesus Christ the ultimate rebel!  He came to show everyone once and for all that the old ways were in need of revision and that the time had come to set things on the right path out from the drudgery of the daily material routines and rituals that had served their purpose of establishing some order among men who had come out of the wilderness raw and naked.  Now he would show them a new way and in a sense transform them from the earthly chrysalis in which they were trapped to be truly free and able to fly off into the heavens like the butterfly.  He told us all that we have that capacity and gift within us that is ours for the taking if we will accept it by acknowledging Him by our devoted faith in Him.  That in the end is what it all comes down to is a question of faith, and if we are looking to Him to guide us we can never lose!

Some rebels I’ve actually met told me they were born to lose and even had that tattooed on them.  But they, are surrendering to failure and sin totally missing the point or tossing a gift of opportunity beyond imagination aside, to be instead a defeated one.  Why do I even allude to this idea of being a rebel of any kind you still might wonder and I tell you it’s simple.  The ways of the world grow darker all the time and many are caught up in the vortex of worldly affairs which cares nothing about you or me.  This world is falling away and the system by which we live is very corrupted and not of God or His heavenly kingdom.  Emphasis is being placed on so many foolish and even wicked practices and behaviors diverting so much attention and energy away from where it should be focused.  When I say I’m a rebel I’m talking about being one who tries to point out these failures by all of us to make the best of all we have before us; to serve Him and make a difference in everything we do and not slip into this complacency of accepting the status-quo, or as someone once told me, “to just go along for the ride!”  Don’t be swept up in the frenzy of technology and an overabundance of information (TMI too much information or information overload) that is at times so titillating and alluring or in the very least extremely distracting, which is just like those captivating sirens In Homeric mythology of Ancient Greek literature beckoning to those at sea, leading the seafarers to the rocky coast or quagmire drawing them in closer to their doom, not seeing clearly in the fog or haze what danger lies in those treacherous waters beneath them.

We don’t have to accept the circumstances or follow all convention; we should always discern and ask questions in order to understand clearly all things that encompass our lives.  Then where change or improvement is needed it can and should be applied by all those involved doing what they should to make things right, never sacrificing justice but to instead see that it is served.  We are the stewards of this earthly world while we inhabit it and should never take that responsibility lightly.  The old adage of “do the right thing,” certainly applies to all, so the more of us that follow that precept the better the world becomes.  “I’m not my brother’s keeper,” but I can at least watch his back and ask that he do the same for me.  By just doing that we can all make life more compassionate with fewer unnecessary pitfalls along the way.  Being a good minded rebel in this way can serve our best interests, just by not “going along to get along;” you see a problem or concern then find a way to highlight it and address it!  Much too often too many people just “blow it off,” and say “it’s not my problem” which is the exact opposite way to look at things if we really care about our lives and the state of affairs in our daily activities.

Yes, instead we must be next to “still waters” as often as we can be to restore our souls with the light of love from the eternal, which shines down upon us always if we will seek it in our hearts.  Because it is there in our purest heart that lays the connection to the Great One, the Most High, which is the source of all wisdom and eternal love.  Don’t be so caught up in this material life that you lose sight of this, because it is plain to see how dangerous and unkind this earthly man-made system is, especially if you are seeking the “light of truth and justice” that only God can provide, nothing else can or will.  Trust in Him,as you move forward in your day, a day of promise and hope.”

Do You Think This Is A Joy Ride?

“as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”

What do some of you think, we’re on some joy ride or trip?  Why does a 2 year old baby come down with brain tumors and go through many medical procedures only to then succumb to the disease.  Why did a family get stuck in a burning tenement and all perish even a one year old baby!  Why did Bashar al-Assad the tyrannical dictator and the wicked leader of Syria get to use internationally banned chemical nerve agent weapons of mass destruction on his own people mainly civilians and most of those women and children, causing them to die tremendously painful deaths struggling to breathe while in excruciating pain that Obama the false American President said would be a RED LINE and wouldn’t be allowed in essence, but the whole world just watched this all happen not once but several times and did nothing!  Yet much of the free world were idolizing this false President Obama like some rock star when I know for sure he is a devil and instigator/destroyer who wanted all of that evil to be inflicted on those children!  Why are there millions of human babies in the womb and even out of it being murdered by the Industrialized Abortion Machine!  Why is there so much hatred and turmoil in the world while most people are thoroughly involved with self, even constantly taking selfies now and the majority of these people are caught up in how to get lots more money, preferably in some easy way!  What part of this do any of you have a hard time understanding; that we children of God are here to “Love and Serve Him.”

But Jesus said, “Allow the little children, and don’t forbid them to come to me; for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to ones like these.” Matthew 19:14

And said, “Verily I say unto you, except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3

“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:10

But here is the most important one that I can impart to you because I have lived it for many a year through very difficult trials and tribulations which damaged me physically which at first I felt sad about but that I now embrace and thank God for allowing to happen to me for without them I would surely be doomed now, and not enlightened as I understand through the Holy Spirit now who precedes all wisdom, my path is steady and true leading directly to Him.

If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” John 15:19

I’m still far from perfect but my sacrifice is not in vein, as I can offer up all of my suffering to God in His Glory and in so doing bring more light into this corrupted doomed world, as it is falling away and will have served its purpose when in that final hour God will take it all away! “God Giveth and He Taketh!”

I have nothing to fear but He that created me because he is the living God who came as the Son of Man to judge the living and the dead and it will only be Him that judges all things as to what they are and will be for eternity!  That is the one thing all of us should pay heed to and be fearing, because any earthly seen power or even unseen powers and principalities might destroy the body but the soul is for God only to decide if He knows it as one of His own.  But Jesus told us, “Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.  On that day many will say to me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?”  And then will I declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.” Matthew 7:21-23

Those that don’t abide in Him will hear Him most assuredly say that in the moment of judgment!  And only a fool would not fear the possibility of hearing that condemnation!
“He has not appointed His beloved Bride to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).  God never pours out his wrath upon his children.  God will chastise his children—we’re the objects of his chastisement—but never His wrath.  God’s wrath is only for the unsaved.  “In those days shall men seek death and not find it and shall desire to die and death shall flee from them,” Revelation 9:6.

“The Holy Spirit stands aside; the anti-Christ, rises to power.  If Jesus’ first coming does not save you, his last coming will certainly condemn you.  What a weeping and wailing when the lost are told of their fate, they will cry for the rocks and the mountains, they will pray but their prayer is too late.  Pestilence, famine, war, terror, regimentation, the reign of the anti-Christ, the beast, will be here.  Demons will come out of the bottomless pit and infest the earth.  All the horrible nightmares this world has ever known will be rolled into one as hell will have a holiday, especially in the last 3½ years, known as “The Great Tribulation.” Revelation 6:17.

“Satan makes one last attempt to overthrow God.  He is cast into the lake of fire.  Then the final judgment.  Every unsaved man, woman, boy and girl will stand before God to be judged.” Revelation 20:7-15

I read this in studying Scripture;  “That some man is going to style himself as greater than God, pretending to be God—and people will believe him.”  Why?  Because:  “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11).

Lawrence Morra

PS  To all of you a so important message came to mind during the night as I slept which I  must in duty to Him convey to you now.

The little what appears as an innocent baby shows us by its suffering that none of us is exempt from suffering and my own suffering tells me that we all get far less than we deserve.

“And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.  But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.  Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.  And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.” Mark 10:13-16

“Jesus said unto them, did you never read in the scriptures, the stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?  Therefore say I unto you, the kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.  And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.”  Matthew 21:42-44

We all have some form of habitual sin even by default being also creatures of the flesh with original sin, but moreover we can’t rise above the allures of the material fleshly world which is the devils realm of folly and vice.

I can see that only by the grace of God are any of us counted worthy to enter His kingdom.  Scripture says, “as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” Romans 3:10.

Also, we should remember that we may very well be in the good graces of God by the suffering of others; so always show mercy and kindness to those who suffer.  Very important too; is our what I call gifts of suffering, because they act as a warning to teach us what comes for our iniquities or failures before God, who is giving us many chances or opportunities to come clean, always seeking to help us purge our souls of guilt by our turning away from all sin, because it is made clear, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”  2 Corinthians 4:17-18

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 8:37-39

Peace and Blessings from our Lord be with you always.  Amen
