Disciple

Disciple

 

Good evening everyone, I hope that this letter finds you all well and I hope that you find this subject matter interesting and an enjoyable read. A lot of the time folks tend to think of the Lord’s 12 Apostles when they hear the word Disciple and it is true that the 12 Apostles were Disciples also.  The meaning of the word Disciple means ‘a follower’ but to be an Apostle a person would have to have been a person who had seen the Lord Jesus and heard His own words from His own mouth and would have had to be chosen personally by Jesus Himself. Obviously there are no Apostles of Christ alive here on the Earth today. The last of the 12 Apostles was John who is credited with writing the Book of Revelation, the last Book of the New Testament. John was also the only one of the 12 who was not murdered for his service to Christ. He was imprisoned, beaten and banished by the Romans but he wasn’t murdered.

 

Those of you who have some Scriptural knowledge know that even an Apostle, one who heard and witnessed the words and miracles of Jesus for three years could, can and did become a disciple of the Devil before his death. Jesus Himself said that it was better for the man Judas who betrayed Him if he had never been born. For it was for this purpose, this act of betrayal that Judas was brought into this world. In the Book of Luke 22:3 it is written, “Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot.” Simply meaning that the Devil or one of His Demons possessed him, took control over him. What a personal horrible thing for this man because the next time that he would see Jesus with his own eyes will be at his judgement before Christ.

 

Disciple, in Mr. Websters Dictionary it reads, follower, one who takes another as a teacher and model. Training that produces orderliness, Obedience and self control. All of these things that Mr. Webster say’s about being a disciple (of Christ) is exactly what I want to be, a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. This is also what I wish for, hope and pray for everyone reading this letter to become before they die. Everyone, and yes I do mean everyone is a disciple of something, some one. Yes, that does mean you too. Everyone is known by their works, the things that we do and say. Everyone around us each day does judge the things we say and do, fair or not, it is still so. None of us are saved by our works, our deeds, but we are known by them. We are all saved by the Grace of God not by our works but if we are indeed followers of Christ, our works will show that. This is why we must all walk in the Light, in the footsteps, the Path of the Lord each and every day. If we choose to walk an evil path then we are not disciples, followers of Christ, we are a follower of the Devil if our works are evil.

 

If a person says, well what if I don’t believe that Jesus is and was the Son of God? My friends, if you have someone in your life who is not a believer, please, please, please do your very best to be a shining light of goodness for their sake. Try your best to help them by the examples that you live by. You do not have to be preaching at people to convert them toward the love of God, live the most perfect life that you can, be an example for them, they will notice. Friends, God is love and He does not want anyone to perish but that everyone would have everlasting life through Him. Remember folks, even though something may be legal for us to do it is not always prudent for us to do it.  For example, it is legal for me to go into a bar or even a strip club and sit down and drink till I can’t hardly stand up and it is legal for me to watch the ladies dance and tip them if we want to but, what about the folks around us, will they see us and think, wow, is this the Christian way? If we by our actions hurt another persons view of what being a Christian is and they turn their back on becoming a follower of Christ and they perish without Christ, their blood will be on our hands. This may seem harsh yet it is the truth that if we are not walking in the light of the Lord Jesus then we are walking in the darkness of this world unto our own destruction. Can we not stay faithful for even a little while? This life is but the blink of the eye in the terms of eternity. What is 80 human years when it is compared to billions of years of eternity?

 

I pray for everyone of us, I pray for everyone’s Soul. The Devil puts so much in each of our path’s, He wishes that each of us stumble in the darkness that He casts. He wants everyone of us to die in darkness. The Devil is like unto a raging Lion walking the Earth everyday looking for people and Souls to devour. The Devil wants you, your Parents, Grandparents, your Children, your Brothers and Sisters, everyone you know and love to go to Hell, literally! He and His Angels (Demons) hate everyone of us. You see, Satan and thousands of Angels fought a battle for Heaven and they lost, now those former Angels are Satan’s Demons and there are thousands of them. All of these Demons have already had their Judgement, they know that when Christ returns they will be cast straightway into the fires of Hell. Earth is for them like the midway point, a stopping off point on the way to their final destination of Hell and they are very very angry about it. They know that God loves us and that we measly little humans have the chance to live in Glory as they used to do so they are doing everything that they can to make sure that none of us get to live in Paradise with God. Friends, each of us really need to ask ourselves the question, if we were to die today or if Christ returned today and put an end to this world, who are we a disciple of. Everyone is either a Disciple of God, or we are a Disciple of the Devil, it really is an either or situation for each of us.

(Philosophy Poem) Is A Monster Made Or Is It Born

Is A Monster Made Or Is It Born

 

When a baby is born who really knows its heart or Soul

Will our little one be the Angel for which we have prayed

Is the directions of the path of the child’s feet truly fluid

True, directions from Parents and adults are so important

Actions toward a child as it grows help give them direction

 

Yet, is an evil mind born into a child or is evil instead created

Our little one, will our words and our ways be enough direction

Can an Angelic Soul be raised in a house that is full of horrors

An evil Soul, can the good actions of it’s Parents truly change it

Evil children, do evil parents and teachers of society create them

 

If a child is truly evil can our kindness and love change their destiny

A faithful child, sometimes to save them the Lord will call them up

Sometimes God takes up the Good to save them from their surroundings

Our Children that we prayed for and hope that we have a God sent Angel

Yet, is a Monster born or is it made, sometimes to both the answer is yes

(Philosophy Poem) Following Foolish Leaders With Lying Tongues

Following Foolish Leaders With Lying Tongues

 

Perverse thoughts separates all people from their God

God’s words expose both the words and ways of the foolish

Wisdom will not enter into a Soul that is by their words deceitful

The Spirit of the Lord will not abide with one with an evil mouth

He will leave the foolish thoughts with evil body and Soul behind

 

God is witness of the innermost feelings and thoughts of the Soul

The Spirit tests their hearts and hears the words of their minds

Those who utter unrighteous things will not escape punishment

Keep your tongue and your heart far from the thoughts of evil

For a Leader who lies with their mouth has a Demon for a Soul

 

The ungodly by their words and ways do summon their own death

They have pinned a Will with Hades to bring many with them to the Pit

The Foolish think that at death their Spirit dissolves into the empty air

Only the Foolish take their fill of riches and steal from the poor and Widows

Even the sight of a Righteous Person is a burden to the Soul of the Evil

They who follow Lying Tongues do walk themselves into the Belly of Hell

 

(I got the idea for this poem from the Apocrypha Book of The Wisdom Of Solomon in the first two chapters)

This is also a salute to Donald Trump.

 

 

(Poem About Life) Dedicated To God

Dedicated To God

 

When we are in the womb our Soul is given

A special few also receive God’s Spirit

As a Babe we are closer to the source of Light

Innocent of sin because we know not what it is

Hopefully in love we get to grow like a flower

 

The World is dark and holes for our life and feet abound

The Lamb of God bought us with the shedding of His blood

Wolves and Vipers hide in darkness to steal our life and Soul

Bathe in the Light of God and darkness will slither away

Darkness may steal our Life but let it never touch your Soul

 

A life is like unto a house built on Sand it will fall into the Pit

We were born with legs to stand and not like a snake to crawl

If we seek it there is Power in the Blood of The Lamb Of God

Put on the Armor of God, live your life like a Child of the Light

Dedicate your life to God, stand up for He who gave His life for us

 

Dedicated to a fellow WordPress Blogger, ‘Child of God’ 

I was asked to write a poem “Dedicated to God”

I hope that this poem does not disappoint.

What If: What If Your Past Changed

What If Your Past Changed

 

This article is going to be one that is unlike any of the other stories that I have ever written before. I guess most folks would classify this article as a ‘Si-FY’ peace. What I am going to try to do this evening is to try to get each of us to think, to think outside our normal everyday box that we all live in. My Bride and I have been watching a program on Net-Flix called Continuum about some folks living in the year 2077 who got sent back to the year 2012 and the show is about the ramifications of that event. If you get a chance maybe you could look up this program to see if you might like it. It is not the greatest program that I have ever seen but it does bring up several interesting concepts.

 

I know that most everyone at some point or even many points during their lives have thought about things they have done, or not done in their own past. Maybe about what if I had taken this job or that job instead of the one that I did take or maybe what if I had asked this other person to marry me instead of the person I did marry. I am sure that you get my point. I am 63 years old now and during my life I have had many crossroads, some of which I regret not taking and others that I am glad I did choose to take. But, any variance off of the path we chose would have caused us personally to have had a different life than the one we have lived.

 

There are some folks who believe that this time that we are all living in is like a sheet of paper that folds over other time warps here on earth that are going on at the same time as the one we see, feel and touch each day.  Some call this alternate universes in time. Some think that in a sense there are wormholes here on earth that can be stepped through taking us to another date in time. Now I would like you to think about, what if such a thing was actually true and a person or persons could step through that portal whether it be on purpose or by a total accident. Now think about this concept, what if this did happen to someone but not ourselves. What if that person or persons effected our life, lets say even just ten years ago. It could be in a way that we would have never even seen coming, it could be a person that we never did nor would ever meet but something they did changed the course of some other peoples lives including our own. Think about going to sleep tonight and waking up to a total different reality. Lets say we are healthy, wealthy and self absorbed when we went to bed but woke up sleeping in a cardboard box in an alley, or maybe under a bridge, all of this because of something that someone else did or didn’t do. You could also reverse that order, you could have gone to bed under a bridge and awoke in a mansion with billions of dollars to spend. Go back further in time, what if your parents never met and you were never born, you went to bed tonight and never woke up because you never existed. Just food for ones brain to feed upon.

 

Personally I do believe in there being a Supreme Being who can and does control time as we know it. I also believe that there are many planets among the trillions of rocks in the sky that hold other life forms, have I ever met any? Not that I am aware of. But wouldn’t it really be odd for God to create trillions of planets and only put life one one? That doesn’t even make any sense. If there is such a thing as time warps here on this planet I personally am very glad that it is God who has control of all such things. Think about it for a moment, what if scientist of any time could walk in and out of time as we know it. Do you not think that the governments would be the ones who would take the control levers of such an event? Another view is that I am glad that it is God who controls time other wise what if another very powerful being with the powers of an Angel like Satan was able to manipulate time, we would all be dead or serving him as slaves. As I said at the beginning of this letter to you tonight, this is all just conjecture for the purpose of stimulating the neurons in our brains. But, WHAT IF?

 

 

Palestine: Abbas Thinks Everyone Is An Idiot And A Fool

Palestine: Abbas Thinks Everyone Is An Idiot And A Fool

 

I have to admit that this letter I am writing to you tonight is one based within a little bit of upset-ness. Earlier today I reblogged an article from the Saudi Newspaper Asharq al-Awsat about comments from the Palestinian President Abbas and the stupidity of his comments is causing me to write this article to you tonight. For it is my belief that Mr. Abbas thinks that everyone who might hear or read his words are idiots and or fools. Mr. Abbas said and I quote “Palestine is for Canaanites and outsiders must leave.” I realize that there are a lot of people who don’t know what a Canaanite even is as people who aren’t familiar with the first few books of the Old Testament would probably have never had any reason to care or know about those folks from so long ago. The exception may be some of the people who live in the Middle-East now, mainly the Palestinians and the Israelite’s. Mr. Abbas’s comment also shows very plainly that he and the Palestinians have no intention of ever allowing there to be any such thing as a Nation of Israel. Giving land for piece is pure stupidity as all they will ever do is to keep attacking anyone who is not Islamic believers. This is exactly what happened when Israel turned over the West Bank and Gaza to them, the Palestinians simply used this land as a new base to continue their attacks on the people and Nation of Israel. There will never be a true peace between the two ever because Islamic believers will never ever let it be so.

 

Mr. Abbas now says that they, the Palestinians are modern day Canaanites and that only they have the right to live in the land of Canaan, or modern day Palestine. He is using this ideology for the purpose of saying that the Palestinian people’s linage goes back before the Hebrew (Israeli) peoples claim to the land when through God’s power He brought them out of the land of Egypt with Moses at the helm. This is because their claim to the land from the time of Mohammed in the seventh century when Islamic raiders took over the whole Middle-East does not go back before the time of the Nation of Israel. In the past the Islamic believers simply have said that there never was a Nation of Israel, disallowing all of Israels people from having been there before Islam was born. They have stated this theology ignoring all written and physical evidence of what they were saying was a total lie. So, now it appears that Mr. Abbas is trying another angle, but, for anyone to believe what he is saying now they would have to be ignorant (un-knowledgeable) of the Old Testament writings. One can easily say that the Islamic people don’t believe in the teachings of the Bible anyway so what would that matter. Good point except that they do honor Abraham and Moses as being Prophets of God. They believe parts but then disavow other teachings all around them. What Mr. Abbas is hoping for is that you, I, and everyone else of the planet is either an idiot and or a fool. In truth everyone that is alive today is an idiot meaning un-knowledgeable about somethings and or many things. Being an idiot on a subject matter is a whole lot different than being stupid, meaning that you are just mentally unable to learn. I looked up the meaning of stupid at Dictionary.com and for the word Fool it says: A person who lacks judgement or sense. And: a person who has been tricked or deceived into appearing to act silly. When I looked up the definition in the Bible it says: Those who misuse wisdom. And foolishness: A disregard of final issues. In other words, they don’t actually care what the truth is, thus showing themselves to be foolish or a fool.

 

I am going to give you a little bit of Biblical input to help you build your knowledge on the matter of the Canaanites and of the Hebrew people, God’s chosen people, the Israelite’s. I am not going to get into copying down ever word written in each paragraph but I will give you a very good detailed base in which you can then easily look up each paragraph that I list to help you understand. I believe that the information that I am going to give you straight from Scripture will open your eyes to the understanding as to why, even if the modern day Islamic believers or Palestinians claim to be of the bloodline of the Canaanites that they are not the ones to be the legal residents of the land of Israel, Palestine. Mr. Abbas knows this, he is just hoping that you and I are all idiots who can be easily fooled.

 

Starting with the first book of the Bible, the Book of Genesis.  Chapter 12 verses 6 and 7. Written as 12: 6-7. (1) This is when Abram (later named Abraham) was sent into Canaan, the land was occupied by the Canaanites. (2) God said to Abram “unto your seed I will give this land.”

10: 19 God describes the borders of Palestine in which the 7 Nations of the Canaanites lived. This would be the future borders of the land of Israel once they came up out of Egypt with Moses. Current day Israel is but a small sliver of the land that belongs to the Biblical Nation of Israel.

Genesis 15: 18-21 God tells Abram that He will give the land (what is considered to be Palestine) to his seed and God will DRIVE OUT THE NATIONS THAT ARE NOT HIS SEED, INCLUDING THE CANAANITES!

Exodus 3: 6-8 God talked to Moses at the Burning Bush. There God refers to the Hebrews (Israelite’s) who were slaves in Egypt as “His people” telling Moses that He will bring them to the land of Canaan and plant them there.

Deuteronomy 7: 1-2 In verse one God told Moses for “the People to go and possess the land” from those who current inhabited it. (2) “God will deliver them (the inhabits) to you and you shall smite (kill) them and utterly destroy them, you shall make no agreement with them, nor show mercy to them.”

7: 6 God speaking: “For you (Hebrews) are a Holy People to Himself above all people who are upon the face of the Earth.”

7: 16 God Speaking to Moses about the Canaanites “destroy them, show no pity.”

There are three people who are called the “Fathers of Israel” they are Abraham (Abram), Isaac his son and Jacob, his son. God changed Jacobs name to Israel and the 12 Tribes of Israel are named after the 12 sons of Jacob/Israel. The following passages are where God gave promises to each of them.

Abraham Genesis 12: 1-3

Isaac Genesis 26: 2-3

Jacob Genesis 28: 10-13

Israel Exodus 3: 8

 

Joseph while in captivity in Egypt in Genesis 40: 15 Referring to his homeland (Palestine) as “the land of the Hebrews.” This was several hundred years before the birth of Moses.

Exodus 15: 14-17 Palestine: all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. (17) Canaan is Israel’s inheritance.

Hebrews 11: 9 (New Testament) The Apostle Paul speaking of Abraham “by faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise.”

 

For President Abbas to say that his people (of the PA, Palestinian Authority) are the descendants of the Canaanites thus being Canaanites themselves, thus the rightful owner of the land of Palestine either he is an ignorant and or stupid fool in this regard or he simply believes that you/we are.

 

 

(Poem) Hating Haters

Hating Haters

 

I hate the haters, don’t you too

I hate them for what they do

I hate them for what they don’t

I hate them because they look like me

I hate them because they don’t

 

Haters twist their faith and moral judgments

They make a distinction when none is due

In the Name of God through ignorance toil

In God’s Name some choose to burn a Cross

Not seeing that their Soul they set aflame

 

Hate is the evil nature of an earthly man

For in God they do not see nor do they please

Hate is for the wicked like Trump and his clan

If you live by faith then have no part of them

For hate is wicked and will only get one condemned

(Poem) Borrowed Time

Borrowed Time

 

From the second the heart beats

The first one in the Mothers womb

For everyone there will come a time

No one ever escapes their own destiny

One day the heart and life will flat-line

 

From our first breath we can not hide

Ever creature that is born will one day die

Many will be blessed with a long happy life

Some still in the womb will be snipped of time

We know not the second the heart will not beat

 

Live your life to the pleasure of the Lord inside

Enjoy the sky the grass the bounties of your life

Live to the fullest with faith from the Soul inside

Show your love to all before the closing of your eyes

Tomorrow may not be for we all exist, on Borrowed Time

(Poem) Knowledge And Faith

Knowledge And Faith

 

I like everyone am but flesh, blood and bone

Descendants from both Kings and from Beggars

Nine plus months we were nurtured in the womb

Our first sound was like all, from a slap on the butt

Knowledge we learn is from both the flesh and Spirit

 

There is but one entrance into this human life

And there is only one way that we will leave it

We need to hope, wish and pray for understanding

Always we should pray for knowledge to be given us

Knowledge and faith are tools to cast down evil Thrones

 

Salvation will come to the Soul who through Faith earns it

Knowledge and one’s Faith are indeed ones unfailing treasures

Yet are our ways and thoughts worthy of God’s good judgement

The Spirit of Knowledge is Faith and worthy of God’s blessings

Nothing in the life of a Mortal is a more blessed gifts then these

 

(Philosophy Poem) The Good The Bad And The Evil

The Good The Bad And The Evil

 

It is better to be barren with virtue than to have children to feed to the fire

Children are indeed a blessing if we bring them up with the mercy and love

For virtue, love and truth will lead both the parent and child to immortality

Truth is that it is better to be blessed by our Creator than by wealthy mortals

True virtue is a prize that will lead those who have it to be given a crown by God

 

The love and the cheers of the unGodly has never saved anyone from the fire

The fruit of the evil one has roots only in the dust and it always fails in time

Fierce winds are sent to test both the evil as well as the pure children of God

Branches of the wicked will snap and be gathered to be burned in the Lords time

For it is true that produce of poison will kill both the eater as well as the producer

 

Old age is both the wisdom and the gray hair even to the young who is truly wise

Sometimes the righteous are called up by God to save them from evil that surrounds

For to live a blameless life is the true sign of wisdom and evil hates even their scent

The Lord sometimes calls up the young to save their Soul from the sinners among them

For it is better to die young and pure than to live long and grow evil with one’s years

The Good the Bad and the Evil ones will all face the Judgement Seat of Christ in time
