(Poem) Grace And Faith

Grace And Faith

 

Grace is shown in peace

Peace is given through faith

Faith is love, with-out question

Gifts of love are through His Grace

What have we learned from the breaths of today

 

How much time did we waste today

A couple hours of Pogo on the side

How much truth did I learn from reading

Were all the arguments all from one side

Did we walk through the doors of life today

 

To show much grace, is that not the face of grace, which is faith

For without faith, there is no chance that we can please Him

If we choose to shy away from His face, love and grace, we’re already dead

Only through His Grace and our Faith in Him can we understand His Love

For without faith we are dead and blind, infidels, a bunch of non-Believers

(Philosophy Poem) Lies, Spies And Cover Thy Ass Again

 

Our great Nations and Corporations to them we cower

They now have annualized every single thing about us

They know us, o yes, they do know us all so very well

But our own Government wouldn’t sell out all our people

Yet is it the truth when they speak to us, or just more lies

 

Our very own government, is it filled with half truth tellers

They had shot down a passenger jet, would our own government

Would our own government be as honest about this ‘mistake’

I pray that they would stand-up with the truth in their hands

Let us all know of their horrible mistake, be open about it

 

Rage is something easy to carry on and on from generations

Yet this one thing I do salute Iran’s government on honesty

There I said it, now Hell has frozen over in Iran and D.C.

Advantageous to tell the truth, better than a myth or a lie

No wonder most trust no-one to ever just tell them the truth

 

Life for a few is always a life about covering their own behinds first

Yet is everything we see or hear first filtered before it even gets to us

Would we know it if Good or Evil walked right past us this very day

Have we sold ourselves to the Madness of un-guaranteed tomorrows

Send Hate back in time, pray that we let God’s love and respect guide us

Okay Christians; Your Idiot Has Gotten Us Into A War With Shiite Islam, Now What?

Okay Christians; Your Idiot Has Gotten Us Into A War With Shiite Islam, Now What?

 

The unexplainable, people who call themselves Christians have ordained a person to be our Leader, our President, who knows nothing of Christianity. The whole world knows that he is an ego maniac as well as idiot who is a total habitual liar. People, Christians, you know this, either that or you really are totally lost to reality. He is just like his Idol Mr. Putin in that he will do anything and I do mean anything, stoop to any level to make sure he stays President. The Father of an habitual liar is the Father of all liars so what kind of a result did you really expect to get with having this Fraud in Chief as our Leader? I never would have thought that U.S. Christians would have been capable of being so blind to the up front evil that is staring you in the face each time throughout history his ignorant mug is shown. The biggest fraud, the biggest idiot, is he going to lead us into this new expanded war, here on our homeland? Or, do we replace him with just another bought and paid for stick? What now world, what now?

Information About The Holy Spirit

Information About God’s Holy Spirit

 

As those of you who know me personally or through these commentaries I share with you here then you know that I grew up going to a local Church of Christ. It would be fair to say that I spent my growing up years there 10-17. But at 17 I made myself quit going. Through my own studies I came to realize that there had to be much more depth in many subject matters than the level that I had been taught.  Subject matters of Scriptures and Faith in which could not hold a blind eye to the fact of their differences. And to be totally honest, my hormones were pulling me toward another line of thought at this same time frame also.

 

One of their two Elders of the Congregation and I had several  Q & A about such things as The Holy Spirit, Spirits, Souls, Possessions, and Miracles. I decided on The Holy Spirit as the subject matter today partly due to these conversations I had with Him and with a few others I trust for Honesty as well as with Wisdom. The Church of Christ Doctrine does not believe in any type of Possession. When one hears the word Possessed, do not their minds go to the thought of ‘Demonic’? But, if it is possible to be possessed with an Evil Spirit, could you not also be possessed with a Spirit of Light? One of the last times that this Elder and I got to speak one of the last things he said to me was about not really understanding “this Holy Spirit thing”. I have thought about those words several times throughout the decades. Now I realize that there were a whole lot of Biblical meat issues that those local folks actually knew that they didn’t know. It is a sad thing that the Earthy Leadership of The Lord’s Bride (The Church) does not know what 1/3 of The God Head is? How was that possible? My experiences were many decades ago, hopefully things have grown in their faith and knowledge since my days.

 

(Matt: 28:19 and 2 Cor. 13:14)

After The Lords ascension back to Heaven from which He came, The Lord did as He said He would do. The Lord sent back to the Earth, to His Servants the Apostles, His Holy Spirit to empower them, the Holy Spirit, to Comfort them. For further understanding on this incident please read through the second chapter of the Book of Acts. Please, if your get the time and opportunity to do it please loiter threw it. After the chapter and verse given is a help word, a word of thought, about Who and What exactly is The Holy Spirit?

Folks, these are just a few of the many Passages concerning who and what the Holy Spirit is. The Body is the Tabernacle (dwelling place) of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit of Christ, to be possessed by Him, this is something that I wish for every human being upon the planet. Fore friends, this would be pure safety from the evil around us and the evil we are yet to see. Fore where the Light of God is, darkness cannot enter! Folks, the Devil and His kind may throw rocks at our homes (Tabernacles) all day long. But, like with any thief or bad person, their ability to harm us, our family, our friends increases greatly, if we allow them on the inside of our homes, body/Soul. True destruction often seems to come from when the inside walls grow weak, then the crumble, then the sound of our own destruction?

 

I hope that this letter was of some value to you. Please feel free to drop me a note, question, opinions or ideas if you wish too.

(Philosophy) Of Grace

GRACE

 

When one is full of grace or grace is given from one to another, what do you think of? In index in my Bible says this about grace—unmerited favor. I don’t think I have ever used those exact words for the depiction before but if you really think about grace from God The Creator toward the creatures He created in Their own image; undeserved kindness, yes, unmerited, unearned kindness. It is the Truth that we humans are saved by Grace. Absolutely this is true, for if we humans were not saved by the Grace of God, then most assuredly everyone of us would perish. There would be no hope for anyone of salvation. For no human of their own accord could live a perfectly perfect life for indeed a man’s righteous is but filthy rags to The Lord. (Is 64:6)

 

I hope that you don’t mind but I would like to put down on paper a few of the beautiful yet direct passages in their meaning. All Scriptures are given for our own understanding and knowledge sake. (Eph 2: 4-10)

4.) But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us.

5.) Even when we were dead in sins He made us alive together with Christ (by grace we are saved)

6.) And has reached us up together and made us sit together, in Heavenly places in Jesus Christ.

7.) That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Jesus Christ.

8.) For by Grace we are saved Through Faith and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

9.) Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10). For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God had ordained that we should walk in them. Remember, without faith it is impossible to please God.

Romans 6: 14 For sin shall not have rule over you for you are not under the Law (Old Covenant/Old Testament)

John 1: 14 And The Word (Jesus) was made flesh and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth.

John 1: 17 For the Law was given by Moses, but grace and truth cam by Jesus Christ.

Romans 5: 1-2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. By whom we also have access by faith into grace where in we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 1 Peter 3: 7 Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them (wives) according to knowledge, giving honor to your wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and being Heirs together in the Grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

 

I hope that I haven’t bored you with the way I laid out this letter to you. Personally I thought these were some  beautiful passages concerning and defining God’s Grace to us. But we all also have an obligation back to God. Some Christian religions teach that once saved always saved. Also that through God’s Grace we are saved so there is nothing that we really have to do in our own personal lives, these ideas are usually taught in unison with each other. But you see, there is a small problem, this is not what the Scriptures teach. Some will tell you that they were baptized (sprinkled) when they were 8 days old so now they can live what ever life style they want to. 2 Peter 3: 16b “they that are unlearned and unreliable twist, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction.”

 

We are all saved by the Grace of Jesus Christ for without Jesus there is no salvation for anyone! But there actually are some other considerations. There are a few simple requirements of each of us like faith in Jesus, loving Jesus and doing the things in our life that Jesus asks of us. If we truly do love Him the we will walk our life in the love and strength of our Master. If we walk our life in darkness then we show the whole world and The Lord, that it is not God we serve, but Satan. As Jesus said to us all so plainly “if you love Me, then you will do the things of which I ask.”

(Short Philosophy Poem) UN-remarkable

UN-remarkable

 

How have I lived my life

How much good have I really done

Have I helped more than I hurt

When The Lord ask His Angel about me

How was the life that he has led

All The Angel could say about me—UN-remarkable

(Philosophy Peace) If I Took A Walk, Outside Myself

If I Took A Walk, Outside Myself

 

If I could be where I was looking at myself, from outside myself like people can do in the movies. But all humor aside, what would I actually see? Just trying to get us to think a little bit about how our neighbors, co-workers, friends and family think about us if we were no longer around. Truth be told, how would it feel to be able to walk around as an unseen, unheard Spirit? I wonder if Spirits, can cry?

Deception And Deceit

Deception And Deceit

 

Most all of us within our life span do walk many different streets, styles, manners, job’s and come in contact with many different kinds of people. If we walk our life with our eyes open and our ears open we will learn many things. Things about ourself, other people, other cultures, religions and even different types of businesses. I believe that none of us really wants to be deceived, not by our families, friends, neighbors or co-workers and definitely not by our place of worship. For us not to be lost within our own life we all need something within us to be our foundation or foundations, our center of trust. We need an inner haven that we can turn to in our times of trouble or sorrow.  We all need this whether it is a family member, spouse or our faith in our Creator. But, what do we do when we learn that our foundation, our security blanket, has been lying to us, deceiving us? This is hard enough on a person when we find out we were being told things that simply were not so by the very people that we trusted the most. When we were being fed incorrect information by accident or through lack of knowledge it is much easier to forgive the person or persons. But, it is so much more hurtful when we find out that we were or are now just plain being lied to.

Lies, deceit, greed, these are all instruments used by Satan to hurt us, to deceive us and to hollow us out inside. Yet when we are told lies by our parents and our society from our very early childhood how do you expect children to feel about ‘our word’ to them? Have you asked yourself yet just what in the world am I talking about?  Consider things like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny. Do you say, oh, those are just harmless little lies, yet are they really harmless? When a child finds out that their parents have been lying to them (their whole lives) you have crushed that faith they had in you forever, they now know that their rock, their foundation, will lie to them over and over again. You have broken their bond of trust, do you honestly believe that they are just harmless little lies in their eyes? What about when a Minister or Pastor of a church dresses up as Santa Clause and parades around as such within the church?

 

There are two more major themes in regards to the science fiction of Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny I would like you to think about. Christmas is suppose to be completely about Jesus and His birth. But, the Devil and His worshipers have through time taken Jesus out of the Christmas equation. Jesus has been replaced with a jolly little fat man in a red suit with flying reindeer who can do many magical things. Then there is also the commercial side of this transfiguration, Christmas has become about how much money you can afford to spend. The truth is this mindset does help keep the economy going, simply put, Santa sells, Jesus does not.

 

There are only two main times of the year that the Christian world tries to promote the times of Christ to the rest of the world, Christmas and Easter. Yet the Devil wants no recognition of Jesus at all so the world blindly follows Pagan traditions. At Christmas time when people should we worshiping Jesus and celebrating His birth, instead the world promotes a Pagan replacement while lying to their children for years. These acts ruin the trust the children’s had in their parent and other adults around them. Then at Easter time when we should be celebrating the death and resurrection of the Messiah instead we put a fictitious Rabbit on a pedestal and we are hiding eggs for the children. Doing this we put the events of our Savior aside in our children’s minds, with lies.

 

By the time we are young adults we have spent our young lives seeing and hearing things that have been done to ourselves and to others that should have never ever happened. In school we are taught it is okay to cheat because it is only cheating if we get caught. In the business world we’re taught that lying and stealing isn’t really lying and stealing, again, unless we get caught. But if we have acquired enough money by the time we do get caught to afford a good lawyer you will probably get off anyway, you might even become President. Lying, cheating and stealing is everywhere in our society today.  Friends, we all have to do our very best to walk our daily life in the Light that is Jesus, to walk our life by His examples that He set for us all. This is so very important for our families sake, our neighbors sake, our communities sake and for our own sake. We are not just condemning our own selves, when we walk a crooked path that everyone notices, including our children. This is a job that each one of us must do to save ourself, our loved ones and society around us. If a person that we know were to be asked of us if we are a Christian, and we were not around, what would their answer be? What would our family, neighbors and co-workers actually say to that question? What do the people we care about and love actually say about us when we are not around? How many would say of us that yes, he/she is a good person, a good Christian? Or, do these same people say of us, don’t trust them, they lie and steal?

 

Do we ever think about what Jesus will say to us, about us, about the life that we have lived? What will Jesus say to each of us? Will it be as in Matthew 25: 34 when He said “Come ye blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world?” Or, will He say the saddest and most horrible words any human could ever hear? Matthew 25: 41 “Depart from Me ye cursed into everlasting fire, prepared for the Devil and His Angels?” Jesus has told us that “no liar shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” Please, let us all think about what we are doing in our daily life. I pray that no human that I have ever known would ever have to hear Jesus say these words to him/her (Depart from Me, ye cursed into everlasting fire.) Remember, the Lord loves each one of us and does not want us to walk astray of His teachings. If we won’t do this for our own Soul, please consider the ones around us that we say we love. Do we really care about our children, our families? Do we care enough to quit lying to them, breaking their trust in us even if we consider them little lies like Santa and the Easter Bunny?

 

Israel: Taxi driver finds $60,000 in his backseat, tracks down owners

Taxi driver finds $60,000 in his backseat, tracks down owners

Taxi driver Moshe Barkat, like many other cab drivers, is used to passengers forgetting items in his vehicle, but what he found in the back of his cab on Friday was truly unforgettable: some $60,000 in American cash.

Barkat, from the city of Bat Yam near Tel Aviv, told Channel 12 that he had worked as usual on Friday, with his passengers including an elderly woman in a wheelchair accompanied by two young men who asked to be taken to Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv.

At the end of his work day he noticed a black bag left on his back seat, and was surprised to find the money in organized stacks of $100 bills.

“I was in shock,” Barkat said. “People usually forget cellphones, small change, but this sort of sum?”

With the help of his wife he tried to figure out which of his passengers had left the money behind, and eventually managed to locate the owners, who said it was intended to fund medical treatments at Ichilov Hospital.

“It’s funny, actually, they weren’t very excited to get the money back,” Barkat said. “I thought they would cry from joy, but it didn’t happen.”

“I am a man of faith,” he explained. “The money isn’t mine, and I returned it wholeheartedly.”

(Philosophy/Poem) Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual Awakening

 

In our modern times do people still have a Spiritual Awakening

Bethel, the latter of the Spirits and Angels of God to Heaven’s door

Do we seek to find the Spirit of God in the life we choose to live

The Kings of Israel learned to seek the face of God, yet do we

Are the Words of God etched upon our Soul and Upon our heart

 

The Lords Apostles told us we should walk with the Lord every day

Can we find a Spirit if we bind our minds in the world of the flesh

By faith and by grace we are all the children of God our Creator

Without faith and love we cannot please the first begotten of the dead

There is no flesh in Heaven, accept the Spirit of God if we wish to live

 

The Prophets of old told us all how by the Spirit of God we should live

The Old Law written in obedience the New is written in Blood and love

The Spirit of God lives within us, if not, at our Judgement were dead

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God for it is through power and faith we live

A Spiritual Awakening is required or with the Devil forever we will live
