(Christian/Poem) Blessed—The Object Of G-d’s Favors

Blessed–The Object Of God’s Favors

 

The Blessed get the blessings, the gift of G-d’s grace

The Loser writes no History, gets a blindfold in place

Real blindness is a Soul destitute of ever a real vision

Blood is the oil that keeps the Lights lit for the Spirit

The Blood of Christ bought us, baptized, a new Creature

 

To be blessed by The One who made us, or die in the moment

How many times have we slapped The Lord’s face on the Cross

Gentiles, it is only right that by the Love of a Jew we are saved

We are all blessed, the object of God’s favor to us: is His Son

(Philosophy/Poem) Protect With Both: Your Bible And Your Gun

Protect With Both: Your Bible And Your Gun

 

Taking the breath away from another should never become easy

When a stranger comes to your door do you always ooze kindness

Self-famous Leaders take all of the rights, away from their slaves

Only the Wolves should have fangs, we others should bow down

Governments say that they are for the good of man, they mean them

 

The fool and the ignorant say there is no God that we have to obey

Everyone is a Spiritual Being who came from God and will go back

The so-called Left can not see the Spiritual ignorance they are in

Some folks on the Right want to use a tank to hunt down Bugs Bunny

The Left nor the Right are able to see that Freedom lies in the middle

 

Someone has always tried to deny the Works of a Divine Being, a God

There are always some who would give all your freedoms away, for peace

Why some Politicians so eager to have all their constituents unarmed

The foolish they try to kill God and education, at school and Peoples homes

A Free People only stay free by the Grace of God and their strength of Arms

 

(Philosophy/Poem) Explain Your Self

Explain Your Self

 

Just who do we really think we are

If a stranger asked our spouse about us

What is it do we think they would really say

Would they paint the stranger a happy picture

Or, would they vent and spit venom at our name

 

Our Children, do you think they ever really knew us

Ever wonder what our kids and theirs think about us

Do you think about if they know you really do love them

Our childhood, how did we really manage to survive it

What have we done for those we can say we really love

 

So many failures, so many things I wish I could change

Were you are a child just trying to learn to stay out of the way

If you were never taught reality, how can one manage to find it

We hopefully can reach old age if we can live long enough to enjoy it

An Old Wise Man told me this just a few days before he passed away

When we finally learn our self, its time to give our Soul back to God

 

Democratic And Republican Parties Are Both Anti-Christ Parties

A Visit To This Time Last Year

Democratic And Republican Parties Are Both Anti-Christ Parties

When I was a young child back in the 1950’s-60’s I was raised in a family that believed in the Democratic Party. My parents were folks who believed in the reality that working people if they wanted to be able to financially survive needed Union protections. They also believed that the Republican Party was solely for the wealthiest people and was clearly anti working people. They also believed that the Democratic Party, because they cared about the poor was the party that the Churches backed. I never remember going to a Church that had a Republican Minister simply because the Republicans agenda’s were in direct contrast to the love, kindness and sharing teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.

In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court with their ruling on ‘Roe v Wade’ abortion ruling seemed to change the political map within the Churches. The teachings regarding abortion within the Scriptures are definitely anti-abortion yet almost all of the Churches and their Ministers remained as Democrats because they could not transcend over to a Party (Republicans) who were against basically all of the teachings of Jesus about how we should all treat each other. Yet, my question is how can a Church, a Minister, or their congregation openly or even behind closed doors back abortion? How can you say that you or a Minister (that word means, Servant) are a Christian (follower of Christ) and at the same time back abortion?

What I do not understand is why the people who say they are Christians have not created a third National Party! The Democratic Party strongly backs a woman’s “right” to have an abortion at any time during a pregnancy. The Republican Party wants to end all abortions seeing them as the murdering of over a million children here in the U.S. each year. So, Republicans have garnered the “conservative Christians” into their camp because of the abortion issue. This is even though the Republican Party Platform is still strongly anti-working people, and anti the people having the right to work under Union protections.

I am a registered voting Independent because I see both Parties as crooked and pure evil. When the people go to the polls this November we just like every other election know that either a Republican or a Democrat is going to win at every level of Government. To vote for anyone else is nothing more than a protest vote that has no effect on who actually wins the elections, it will be a Democrat or a Republican. So, just like this November we Voters are having to consider which one of the two Evils win. Especially concerning the Presidency this year, which Evil is less Evil, that is what we have to look forward to. For either of these political parties to claim to be close or closer to God is total BS. Evil is still Evil, neither of these Political Parties have the endorsement of the Scriptures of God, so how can anyone who calls themselves a Christian or Jewish endorse or support either of these Demonic structures? I used the title of them being anti-Christ, I am not saying that either Parties leadership is ‘the anti-Christ’. What I am saying is that both Parties policies are in direct indifference to the teachings of God’s Holy Scriptures, thus both Parties are Anti-Christ!

If You Believe In The God Of The Bible Then You Believe In E.T. Or: Do You Think God Is An Idiot!

 

If you are a person that believes that there is ‘a God’ who created everything then it is my belief that either you believe there is life on other planets, or you must think that God is an idiot. Personally I do believe in the God of the Bible and not for one second do I believe that He is an idiot, I believe that He is the furthermost possible from being an idiot. For one thing, an idiot could not have created even this planet and the life on it and that is even without considering that God made many billions of planets. I know that many folks who do believe in the Bible as the ‘Word Of God’ are quite oblivious to major issues within it but those subject matters are for another time, another article.

 

I personally to the best of my knowledge have never seen an Alien nor have I to the best of my knowledge seen a non-human made spacecraft. I do know a person whom I totally trust who says that when she was about 10 years old her whole family absolutely witnessed one that was way to close for her comfort. This lady is not a liar, when she tells me something she has no reason to lie. I know that in my adult lifetime during my 30+ years driving the roads of North America that I have seen lights in the night sky several times that I could not explain so I will not try too here.

 

I know that Scripture says several times that the Earth will be ‘God’s footstool’ and I do not doubt the Word of God. The simple Biblical truth is that once God puts an end to our current world and He remakes it and He has brought the ‘New Jerusalem’ down from Heaven in the location of the current Jerusalem that He will rule the new world from there. The Bible is quite plain that ‘The Christ’ will put His Throne upon the Temple Mount and then He will physically rule from there. In other words, He will be resting His feet upon this planet. What does a person do with a footstool? They rest their feet upon it!

 

You see, I am not saying that human beings are also on other planets, I doubt that there are, yet to believe that God created many billions of other planets and solar systems for no purpose or reason at all is ludicrous. Even Heaven itself would qualify as ‘other worldly’ as it is a place where non-human Beings live. Humans can not see the Spiritual world or a Spiritual Being unless they want us to. There are several Biblical examples of this, do you by chance remember the donkey that an Angel opened its eyes, then its mouth? Why would the most intelligent Being that has ever existed create billions of planets and then put nothing on any of them? Is it simply that there are beings on other planets but we just can’t see them? Are there Beings on other planets that live under the surface of their planets? I am not going to tell you that I know these answers as that would simply be a lie on my part and I refuse to do that. I know that I am not the smartest person in the world, not even the smartest guy. I think that the smartest two people in the world are suppose to be Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, aren’t they? Yet all jokes aside, do you really think that a Supreme Being made all of these planets for no purpose at all? Do you believe that God is an Idiot? I don’t!

(Philosophy/Poem) Can We Understand Wisdom

Can We Understand Wisdom

 

What is wisdom to the likes of a man

Is wisdom judgement, is judgement justice

If you cannot understand, is knowledge possible

For without knowledge can ones wisdom be valid

Can the simple or wise understand the secrets of God

 

A good father teaches his child to obey their mother’s instructions

An obedient child is a crown of glory to both parents and to theirs

Yet the child who refused instruction brings the family only shame

An open-pit awaits for those who are stiff-necked, blind and simple

The foolish and the simple refuse the clarity of the light when given

The Lord has offered His children understanding if they will choose it

 

The Spirit of the Lord is poured out to all who will obey His instruction

Yet the ignorant and the cold-hearted think themselves to wise to accept it

When calamity and woes come down upon us like a hurricane from Hades

Do we fall down upon our knees or shake our fist at God and the Heavens

Should a person risk their life to safe the ones who always refused to listen

Do we die because we refused to except instruction to understand God’s wisdom

Can We Except Life Or Even Should We

 

 

This title is just a thought that fluttered across my tired mind as I sit here at my computer just before 5 AM on this rainy Friday morning. I just spoke with one of my regular readers here on-line a few moments ago about an article I reblogged for another writer earlier this morning. The article that I reblogged was one about Norway being the happiest country in the world and I made a comment to my friend that Norway is where my ancestral tree has its roots. In our conversation I mentioned that I have never been to Norway and reality is that I never will go there. She came back with a comment that I could just make a short trip and visit that proverbial Tree. I didn’t get into reality issues in our conversation so there are things that she was not aware of as to why I haven’t gone there or why I won’t be able to go there in the future (if there is one). There are two main reasons that I won’t be able to go there and they are simply I do not have the health nor the money to make such a trip. Reality is also that if I had one of those rich Uncles that I never knew about and he offered to give the means to do such traveling I would turn that offer down and ask him to spend that money more wisely such as giving it to a food pantry, soup kitchen, meals on wheels or to a shelter. The needs of the poor are so many that if I inherited a billion dollars I could spend it right here in Appalachia and I know that this still would not be even close to enough to cover the needs of the people. My wishes to see other lands outside of North America are nothing in comparison to children having good food to eat and a roof over their head.

 

As I have aged I have mellowed out my rambling and rowdy ways of my youth which is something that I am very glad of. When a person knows that they are close to death and the doctors have for years been saying that they do not even know how you are alive one can get a bit philosophical in how they view life and the world. The things that matter to you seem to evolve within yourself. As I look back at the different events in my life where I made horrible decisions that hurt other people it in some cases just makes me sick. There are many things that happened in my past with people who were suppose to have loved who treated me horribly constantly instead. Yet I did learn from how others treated me and I have learned from my own sins, they are all part of what has made this person that I am today.

 

There are some people who might say that I have given up on life but I disagree with that line of thought. I feel that I am simply realistic. I have learned to accept my physical health and all of the limits it forces on me. As we humans age we all have to understand that at some point if we live long enough there are going to be things that we used to could do that simply isn’t safe for us to do or is just to painful for us to do. People who have lived almost all of their lives in financially week to week survival mode are very used to not even thinking about a new car or being able to take a week’s vacation even if they stayed at home because they simply can’t afford to. Things like stocks and bonds and European holidays or belonging to a Country Club never even cross their mind because they are to busy working their fingers to the bone trying to come up with housing and food for the next week. People have different realities that make their life unique from other people’s lives even from within their own families. We are all individual creatures ordained by God through the breath of life that He has given to each of us and though we can all be tied together by the Holy Spirit of God, our Souls are individual creations.

 

We all have to decide what kind of person we will settle on being, even if we feel that we do not choose, that we are just ‘happy go lucky’ that is still our choice. If I could somehow trade places with President Trump but I would have to have his ‘qualities’ and his Soul, even though he obviously has much better health, a lot more money and a really cool job, there is no way I would accept that offer. So, can we except the person that we are today? Are we alright with that person? Do you have youth and or decent health? Do you have the desire to live better or different from what you are today? So, can we except our lot in life, can we change it if we really want to? I have found my own answers and my own personal peace with our Creator, before you leave this Earth I pray that you will figure out who you are and if that is okay with you. This is an individual thing, only we can decide what our path in front of us looks like and if we are content with that path.

If We Are A Racists, We Are Nothing But Luke Warm Water To Jesus

Racism And Jesus

 

Racism is hate and if you believe in Jesus, in Christianity, then this hate can be no part of any of us. Jesus was a Jew folks, he would have been Mediterranean brown, not a white boy. Here in America and a few other places around the globe there are people who call themselves ‘White Supremacist’, ‘Skin Heads’, ‘Alt-Right’ and or members of the KKK. I know very well from my travels all around this country that there are people filled with racial hate of every skin color, not just these white folks. There are also many people who are hate filled that use their religion to spew their hate, violence and murder. To me one of the things that I have never figured out is hatred of others within the Christian communities such as Protestant’s killing Catholics and vise versa. There is no such thing as “in the name of Christ I kill you.”

 

Up until the moment that Jesus rose from the chains of death the only people in the world that had any chance of salvation were the Jewish folks, not the Greeks, Romans, Brits or anyone else. When Jesus rose from the grave He broke the bonds of death and He ‘grafted’ all of the non-Jewish people into the safety of His arms. Jesus made it very plain to His Apostles and Disciples that they were to go and teach the Gospel to all nations, all tongues, all people so that they also could receive Salvation that it was no longer just to the Jewish people. People whom call themselves Christians yet will not invite a person of another nationality or skin color into their home or to sit with them at their supper table are delusional in thinking that these actions, this hate is ordained by Jesus. You will not find anywhere in Scripture where racism is ordained by God.

 

Jesus died on that cross to open up Salvation to all people of the Earth. If we are filled with hate toward other people over something they nor we have any control or say over, like skin color or the country we were born in, we are condemning our own selves to Hell. Folks if we say and believe in Jesus as ‘The Christ’ and we say we are followers of Christ ‘Christians’ yet we are racist or hate filled of others then we are nothing but ‘luke warm water’ to Jesus! For those who do not understand this meaning I will try to help bring its meaning into focus for you. In the Book of Revelation Jesus said that as Christians He would rather we be hot or cold for if we are luke warm He will spew us out of His mouth. Being hot would be being a very devout follower of God’s teachings. Being cold would be someone who is a Christian in their own mind yet never acted like a Christian or even let the people around them know that they were a Christian. Being luke warm is being a ‘fake’ Christian, a person who only acts like a follower of Christ for a couple of hours on either Saturday or Sunday morning. These are the people who during the rest of their week talk filth, lie and steal and tell racists jokes or have racist hatred in their actions toward other people, yet say they are a Christian. The people who do these sort of things drive the people around them away from considering becoming a Christian because of their horrible examples. Also, people who act like this tend to ‘drive away’ new and/or weak Christians. A luke warm Christian will be found guilty of not only their own blood being condemned they will be held accountable for the blood of all of those you chased away from the Cross of Christ. We cannot serve God and the world at the same time, either we are one or the other. If our heart is filled with hate, we have already made the decision that we have chosen the Devil over God.

(History Philosophy/Poem) In My Time — A Odd And Unique Story Of My Life

In My Time—-My First Ever Post Revisited

 

I was just going through some of my data and I went back to my first ever post, I like it pretty well so I brought it up from the grave to you, for your consideration to see what you folks think of it. Basically this is a story of my life, it is a story filled with the good the bad the ugly the odd the strange, the spiritual and the evil. By no means am I perfect, I have had more flaws than I could possibly remember or count. I have tried to put this story into the form of a poem, hopefully it will tweak your interest some, who knows, it may give you a few moments of humor.   T.R.S.

 

O Lord, the things I have seen in the days I have been given

O Lord, the things by your grace to me You have shown me

South-West Virginia and Your beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains

Iron Ridge culture, hard-working poor white trash, 1950’s

 

 

“I’m going to start remembering now”

These, the first words I ever remember

Spoken aloud, words from within my own soul

Inner words, everyone has a soul, I know They speak to us all

 

 

Placed all the rooms in our little home, which I still remember

Outside, counted all the concrete blocks front stoop to back yard

Two years old, friends how do we do and know such things as this

Born with math skills, but look at Mozart what at three he could play

 

 

Summer time, setting on the front porch, my two siblings by my side

Walk across the dirt road to the old dilapidated wood cattle gate

Sunny day, watching the cattle milling around on the other side

Mom gave us each a nickel for us a Coke to buy, a great treat at the time

Walked to the Shell filling station just below this house that sheltered five

 

 

O how hard it was on Mom, alcoholic Dad drinking his wages away

Minimum wage factories, workers just chafe on the rich mans floor

I guess it’s easier on the preschool children, the caste they don’t know

School starts, you see other children, realities you had not seen before

 

 

Mid 1960’s, poor flight to west, a better life you’re hoping for

You trade the Blue Ridge for the Great Sioux’s Black Hills

O Lord, on at trip like this, the things a child’s eyes ingest

Moon light shines, illuminates the beauty of the big rigs

 

 

August Rattle Snakes playing in the sand, 114 degrees in the shade

30 days later, chest high snow in September, O what a strange place

One year later, hoping for better, for a good job toward Windy we ran

When you are so poor, you spend your whole life trying to escape it

But even young, I knew that pain, always present in my Mamma’s eyes

 

 

Life is always hard with an alcohol disease riddled parent in the home

Knowing you are hated as he beats you with glee, innocent meaningless

Even harder on the child when they know other adults know and see

They never ever come to your aid, they always just allowed it to be

Life’s early hardships, good or bad, they help create the person you see

 

 

About fifth grade I walked through the door of Your House Lord

My life long rock, my life many times I know that You have saved

Poor white boy, learning of life in the mid-west, with a Hill Billy mind

With some knowledge of Dakota’s history and beautiful Black Hills

 

 

These life’s lessons, good and bad, always living behind my eyes

Now I am aged with gray beard and store-bought eyes on my face

The projector in my mind plays me many memories of my time

Occasionally I see some of the good I have done in this my life

Though I try to cull these pictures from the corners of my mind

A lofty heart leads to evil, I wish to give ego no quarters to hide

 

 

In my life I have mastered the art of many forms of evils

O how I wish I could say that these thing were  just a lie

But when you have seen and have known pure evil in life

Pay some attention to the news, evil all around us resides

 

 

Demons have no fear of man, they will lie, looking you in the eyes

They will tell you they are Angels, for your best interest they care

Do not be deceived, mainly in the worlds Capitals they often hide

Through time Lord You have shown me many things, good and bad

 

 

Through Your Spirit You have given me sight beyond my dreams

In life it is so easy to become depressed if living without You inside

You have so plainly shown me our planets plight’s and our demise

World leaders and the media so filled with venom to Your light

Evil so blinded and hungry for more power, money, and pride

 

 

I know that by the time Your trumpet sounds Lord

I will once again be dust upon and within the ground

Though I cringe for all our children, and theirs

The battle of the Nations against their Creator

For left behind loved ones, Armageddon lies ahead

 

 

As the Lord and His Angels return to fight from the clouds overhead

The Demons pre-judged, to Hell they will now be thrown in first

Leaving the poor defrauded people to fight God and His Angels alone

They are now like grapes in the press, confused, disillusioned, and dead

Lord I thank You that this event I will not have to see, “In My Time”
