(A Savage Comment) COVID-19: A Culling Of Our Herd?

COVID-19: A Culling Of Our Herd?

 

The reason for this letter to you tonight is designed to do one main thing, to get you to think! At this moment in time we are all living in a world unlike anything that any of us have ever witnessed before. This COVID-19 is not just a medical issue, it is also a psychological and a spiritual issue for each and everyone of us. To me, this is a good time to learn who we are as a race, the one that calls ourselves human. In this letter to you I am only hoping to open our minds to possible realities on this COVID-19 issue. I am not trying to tell you what to think, thats your job.

 

Back in the history of human time there have been cases of humans being culled out through such things as warfare, discrimination, enter-breeding, religious hatred and diseases. In a sense humans are a lot like animals in the same realities of extension. On a more recent comparison for us in history is when the Europeans came to the Americas with all the germs that they carried with them. Don’t get me wrong, every person that came across the pond could have been totally healthy yet they were still carriers of diseases the Native people had no defense to.  In that case many millions of Native American people died. Yet, not all “Indian” people were killed by white mans and black mans diseases nor even by their bullets nor starvation. Some (a few) do still remain to this day. But, why didn’t the different diseases from Europe and Africa kill off all the “Indians”? It has to be because the Indian folks grew an immunity to each of these diseases. The closest thing to these current events was in 1918 when the “Spanish Flu” killed tens of millions of people in the U.S. and especially in Europe. Folks, yet once again, 2/3 or there about of the people survived. Survivors had to grow to a level of immunity. 1347-50 In Europe the “Black Plague” is said to have killed 1/3 of Europe before it tore off into Russia in 1350. Folks, people in Europe and in Russia survived by the millions and tens of millions even though many million did die.

 

What I am saying is “immunity”. We humans will grow an immunity to it just like our pets and other animals seem to have. This COVID-19 is going to be something that all future people will have as part of their personal DNA from now on. Isn’t the only other option one in which this eventually kills everyone on the planet? If that was to be the case “what kind of world” would it be that we will be surviving in anyway? A Culling OF THE HERD? Think about it for a moment please, if one million people world wide die from this disease or even lets say five million people die from it, there are over seven billion humans on this rock. The percent “culled” is tiny when you compare the two. I just asked Google and it says if 5 million people die on the planet from this disease that would equal about .000714% of the worlds population. What I am saying folks is that most all of everyone is going to survive this, otherwise it would be a world killer and then there isn’t any thing we can do anyway that would prolong any life with a life style worth living for. Personally I get through these issues with a quiet prayer a few times a day, maybe that might help some other folks also. Faith is a wonderful thing, (Faith) and (Love) I do wish upon everyone of us.

(A Savage Comment)—Why That Name?

 

I got to thinking a bit about my decision to call comments or short stories that I write directly to you “A Savage Comment”. To me it seemed a natural thing to do for one and only one reason, thats what I have been called since I was a wee lad. So, if you would, take note, the title has nothing to do with pro intentions of/or for about hate. I just thought that maybe one or two of you’all might have had a question about that.

 

On a much more somber note, I just wanted to say that you are all in my prayers and I ask everyone to stay calm. Spend some time to inflect upon our own self, quietly. Hopefully a bit of personal time in quiet prayer with our Creator. I pray for peace for all of us, no matter what the results around us, stay at peace within our own minds, within our own Soul, comforted with God’s Holy Spirit, our Creator. God’s Peace to you all I pray.

(Philosophy Poem) When Prayer Stops

When Prayer Stops

 

When the prayers we pray stop

Will it be from lack of air, or faith

When or will there be a time we stop

Think if no one had ever, prayed for us

Would we feel special, upset, or insulted

 

If Faith does indeed exists

Would Prayers not soon follow

Is Love not required, for a Soul to live

Can one have Faith if they posses no Love

Without Love a persons prayer is but dust

 

We live and we die by what we believe

Do we only believe that which we see

Or can Faith redirect a persons vision

Can we Believe though we are blind

Our end will be at the end of Prayer

(Love Poem) Their Is A Little Lady

(Their Is A Little Lady)

 

Their is a little Lady

Walking across my desk

Strutting like She owned it

She has a walk, a belief in Herself

Just a hairy little Dust-mop Pet

 

She rolls over on her hairy back

Gives you Her furry belly to pet

Her purr, loudly giving off her mood

Whose paws are eating out of whose

Do they sometimes make you wonder

Who is the Master, and who is the Pet

 

 

(A Savage Comment) Through Ignorance World Leaders Wasted Our Blood And Gold

Through Ignorance World Leaders Wasted Our Blood And Gold

(I first wrote this on June 21st of 2014, almost 6 years ago now. What really has changed?)

Yes I did say our, as in (you and I) who are part of this world conversation we call our lives. There is a section of the world’s population who have no faith system of any kind, what percent, I don’t know that answer but it probably varies from nation to nation wouldn’t you think? What I am going to get at is this, you don’t have to believe in something, for that something to kill you. Here in the States there are a lot of Atheist type folks who through their lack of knowledge degrade Christianity and Judaism every chance they get. Unfortunately we find many of these people in seats of power throughout many nations.

I want to ask you what you thought when your nation (if yours did) put blood and money into these Islamic nations, putting our soldiers in direct open conflict with various Islamic faith factions. I totally agree that after 911 when the experts figured out that Osama was behind it and they learned that he was in Afghanistan being protected by the Taliban whom would not give him up, we should have removed them from the face of the earth. The bigger problem after running those Satanic embers out of power was in how to rebuild this broken nation both physically via helping them build a national infrastructure and a solid national pride in getting all of it’s people a quality education both boys and girls. But, big but, how do you cure the inside of a person when their moral fiber is evil and they refuse to change their beliefs or culture within their own brains?

Our nations leaders should all have known that there is no way to help create a puppet government that can only stand for as long as we prop it up with a lot of our blood and money and honestly expect the nations of fundamental Islam to not retake everything once we leave? O, but isn’t that the same lesson our leaders didn’t learn in Iraq either? There is a fundamental reality about the Islamic faith at it’s core, they do not believe in democracies as the rule of law.

The whole world is in a position to have it’s ground stained with the blood of their own children. There are many major brewing and open conflict areas on the globe, all are dangerous, but no conflict can ever be as dangerous as one that is about what a group’s Faith teaches, especially if  that Faith teaches global enslavement by force. I would like to say to the world, please wake up, but I have no faith that we will. Folks the world of Islam is very much at war with you and they will kill you whether you believe in them or not, they would prefer we all be foolish, it makes us all easier to kill.

 

(Love Poem) I Find Myself Missing You

I Find Myself Missing You

Two days before you left

I found myself missing you

Your body here still soft and warm

Yet my mind already missing you

 

Though your Mission is right and true

Yet, I still miss you when you’re gone

Your three Northern Stars they do glow

Please don’t forget your own Pilot Knob

 

Twice today while passing I looked into your room

Boo sleeping quietly at the foot of your empty bed

Dark of morning or of the night has little difference now

Yet, light or dark, I still find myself missing you, my lady

(Philosophy Poem) My Views Of My Views

My Views Of My Views

 

How would I review someone with my views

I’m told by close family that I am depressed

I don’t see it that way, I feel as though I’m blessed

The darkness of days grows closer, for all who breathe

Should my views mean anything to me, or even to you

 

Does a person like me give a damn about other folks

It would be a Hell of a life if I/we decide that we don’t

Toward the Left or the Right or one of them independents

Can you tell me why you or I either way mean any thing

Knowing I am so little yet God has given His Love anyway

 

Will we ever quit judging and just decide to live in peace

Colors of flesh, is it ignorance to actually treasure the meat

Crimes of Love are not Love, if they are sauteed with hate

Let the Cards fall where they may, as long as we live by Faith

Did any of my views help you to decipher, any of your own

 

 

(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) 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.”

Are We All Equal And Even?

Are We All Equal And Even?

 

Good evening folks, as you can see I have decided to write to you on the subject matter of if we are all of equal value both in our own human eyes and in the eyes of our Creator. Let’s break the two words down separately for a moment, define them and see if they come back together in the end. I looked the words up in the Webster Dictionary and this is what it had to say. Equal: same in number, style, merit, fit or qualified, evenly balanced, one equal to another. Then for the word Even: uniform in quality, equal in amount, impartial, invites comparison.

 

I do hope that with age that we all do learn from the life that we have lived, good, bad and the ugliness of our societies we survive within. I know that our Lord said for us to “not put those of gray hair away, for in the gray hair on man lies the wisdom of the world.” I used to wonder for years how any of us humans could possibly think of ourselves as being superior or as subordinate to other people then at the age of 22 I had an eye opening reality slap me in the face and I was given the answer. At the age of 22 I left northern Illinois where I had lived for 12 years and moved back to the town I was born in which is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia. From the ages of 10-17 I attended our local Church of Christ but from 17-22 I have to admit that I didn’t attend very often. So, when I moved back to the home of my family roots I decided that I would start going back to Church at their local Church of Christ.

 

I attended this Church for three weeks when on one Sunday evening the Preacher turned in his 30 day notice of his quitting. He and his family were not local folks, in fact they were “Yankees”, they were from the state of Pennsylvania so quite honestly I was a bit surprised that he had even even been hired there as some of the folks in that region are still fighting the Civil War within their own minds. That Sunday evening after the Preacher had given his notice I met him at the door and told him that I had been thinking about making this the Church the place I was going to be a regular at so could he tell me what was troubling him so much that he decided to quit and leave the area. What the man told be both shocked me and woke me up at the same time. What he said was that it is the Church Leadership’s opinion here that the only people who have Souls, are white people. Seriously, that is what he said, I never ever stepped foot in that building again.

 

For years I had wondered how it was possible that some people throughout history to treat each other as horribly as we have. How was it possible for the atrocities of the slave trade of years ago and to this current date? How was it possible that the government of our Nation (USA) to have ever worked to eliminate a whole race of people like they did all throughout the 1800’s with the Native Americans. How could a government or a major ruling race say to another that “you are less than I am because you don’t have the same skin color as me or because your religion is somewhat different than what we believe.” How phony can a person or persons be? One of the thoughts that I have pondered throughout the years is just how does a person think they will be able to justify their ego’s and their hatreds when they step in front of the Judgement Seat of our Creator? How could it be possible for me to believe that it is okay with our Creator for me to treat people of a different skin color or from another country than I am as if they are less important than I am?

 

Friends, it took me a long time before I finally understood this reality, it took me a long time to “get it.” People treat other people as ‘sub-humans’ because that is what they believe inside themselves. This ‘truth’ is both sad and scary at the same time. This reality does also extend to financial class hatred of each other. Things like I hate you because you are richer than me or, I hate you because you have less than me. So many do try to puff their own selves up by squashing and demeaning all others. Truly, Demons do walk this Earth among us and they are as starving Lions looking for whom they may devour. The truth is that many people actually do believe that all other people are ‘less’ than they are. That at best, only a few other people are Equal to themselves. Many people of this egotistical world do not believe that others should be considered or treated as “Even” or allowed onto the playing field of life with themselves.

 

Jesus tells us plainly over and over again that God IS NOT a respecter of persons. He is telling us that one person is not better than another. Whether we are a King, a President or a person who cleans toilets for a living and lives under a bridge, we are all of equal importance to God our Creator. Salvation is given by God to all people of the Earth, to all Nations, to all Languages. Why is it that some of us humans seem to think that we can slander God’s human creations and demean them? How is it possible that we can think we will not be held accountable by our own Creator of these sins? Friends, it is all of us who are not “Equal, Even” or sufficient, not of our own abilities. It is only by the Mercy, Grace and Power of our Creator that any of us have ever drawn a single breath. Folks it is by our ‘works, our actions’ that we are known. If we hate our brother without a cause, we at our own Judgement will be looked upon by the Hosts of Heaven, God’s Angels and our Creator Himself as nothing more than a murderer.

 

Just think of this, if we humans would do this one thing, to love one another as Jesus has loved us, then most of the worlds ills would go away. Love, kindness, goodness, charity, and mercy, what an abstract thought in our society today. When a child comes forth out of the womb it is Equal, it is Even, it is the humans around the child that teaches them both truth and errors, love and hate.
