(Philosophy/Poem) Ignorance Pure Ignorance

 IGNORANCE PURE IGNORANCE

 

Hiding from the truth, but do we even know what it is

Yet it is something that we sometimes try to do

Our own secrets and truths we can’t hide from

Ignorance, pure ignorance, living like a fool

With age we all can look back at our mistakes

Back at the path of life we all chose to allow

 

 

looking back at all the faded smiles in our memories in time

Did we make the calls, or leave loved ones waiting by the phone

Did our ink upon much paper dry or did we even try to write

Does our own family know our hand like a fingerprint in time

Does our family we say we love even know the details of our face

Without love life is but wasted time, so have we wasted our life

 

 

Ignorance, pure ignorance the guilt of a wasted life

Tonight upon my bed I decided to change how I live

In time of deepest thought do we have anything to say

Was I only dreaming when I heard a voice speak to me

These words in night sleep said, ignorantly is how I lived

 

 

These last words that we hear in this prayer tonight, are they fit to be our last

Will they be the last this life has left, if we never hear the spoken word again

The Holy Spirit saying to my Soul did you do the best that you could have done

Does our conscience ever ask, why did we choose to live our life the way we did

Ignorance, pure ignorance the Angel says as he throws us into Hell’s fiery pit

Our Faith: Do We Really Have Any At All?

 

Faith is a beautiful word and if one truly has faith in what they are speaking or doing the chances are that they will do better regarding that subject matter than if they are lacking in the faith there of. Most of the time when I have heard the word faith it is being spoken of in a ‘religious’ context yet faith is not exclusive to religion. We can have faith in just about anything. We can have faith in our athletic ability, or our ability to make our car or house payment each month, or that our spouse will not cheat on us with another. It is not wrong to have faith in things other than God, yet if we have more faith in something above what we have in God then that subject has become our God. I have faith that the Sun will come up tomorrow just as it did today, but only if God ordains it to be so. I have faith that the Sun will set this evening yet I do not know if I will still be alive to see it, that is up to God. I have faith in God, not the Sun or the Moon, I by my own strength can not cause the Sun or the Moon to do anything, only by God’s strength do they or I exist.

 

There are a few Scriptures that I will add at the end of this article that concern ones faith in God that you can browse through if you wish to. But this article today is going to be about our faith in God and the main Scripture I am going to refer to is found in the Book of Hebrews, the 11th Chapter, verses 1-4 and 6-9.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for. The evidence of things not seen.

For by faith the Elders won God’s approval.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: And by it he being dead yet speaks.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

By faith Noah, being warned by God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear. Prepared an Ark to the saving of his house (family), by which he condemned the world.

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go into a place which he would later receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing where he went.

By faith he (Abraham) journeyed in the land of promise, as in a strange country, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise.

 

Okay, that is it for the Scripture quotes of this article today. In my belief there is one main theme that runs throughout those 8 verses and that theme is ‘faith’ in God our Creator. Faith, to me, is the actual base of each and every person. Each person has faith in something, the core of their personality is what their faith is in, even if one only has faith in themselves. I have met many people in my life who do not believe in “a God”, the government, their education system, or even in any member of their family. These tended to be people whom in their own eyes had been let down by pretty much everyone and everything they have experienced in their own lives. All of a persons possessions, all of our family and friends, just like our own bodies, will pass away. There is only one thing we have that is eternal and that is our own Soul and it came from God and after we die it will go back to God. So, personally, if I am going to have total faith in anything or anyone, it will be in He who created us, and who will judge us at the end of our life. He who will decide, from our own actions while we lived, as to where we will spend ‘forever’ at. Our actions while here in this life are dictated by the things we believe in, or do not believe in. I chose to have faith in God before and above all else. If a person has a ‘Godly’ Soul they will put God first and being that God is the foundation of all that is good, if we do honestly put God first then we will tend to walk the path of light that He request of us.

 

Concerning religion it is common to hear term’s concerning the ‘path’ of life that we are walking just as in the business world when it is spoken of our ‘career’ path which decides our advancement in the ‘firm’. What we want the most in our lives is what we tend to believe in most, even if that faith is only in ourselves. When we tell someone that we will walk somewhere with them, would it not help if we move our feet? Lip service to ones faith does not compute to actual faith if there is no physical movement toward that which we say we believe in. We can say we are a rocket scientist because we have done a lot of studying in that field and we may enjoy hearing all about the fields scientific accomplishments, but if all we do is sit on our behinds and do not engage that entity, are we really a rocket scientist?

 

Many people say they are Christians because they do believe that Jesus Christ and the Holy Father Jehovah do exist yet they do not study God’s ‘instruction’ Book at all nor do they attempt to walk a ‘Holy’ lifestyle. We all know of cases where Preachers/Ministers have seriously hurt peoples faith in God because of their personal horrible actions. I was once in the break room of a company I was visiting shortly after a certain well known Preacher in Baton Rouge Louisiana had disgraced himself by his personal actions and a lady in the break room said because of this Preachers action whom she had been a long time follower of that “I will will never believe in God again” because this ‘great’ man had fallen to his temptation.” Everyone of us a human, we all have weaknesses and the Devil and His Angles know exactly what those weaknesses are, this is where they attack us, in our weaknesses, not at our strengths.

 

There will be an event that all of us must face and that event is ‘The Judgement Seat Of Christ’. If our own personal faith was weak or non-existent during our lives, Jesus will know it. Our Creator knows how each of us think and how we believe, or don’t believe, concerning Him and His teachings that He left for us to learn and live by. Our faith toward something is measured by our actions, if we believe in something very strongly, our actions show that belief, that faith, to the rest of the world around us. If we are lacking in that faith, our actions show that to the rest of the world around us also. I will finish this article with one question, when Jesus looks us straight in our eyes, and He will, what then?

 

These are the Scripture verses I spoke to you about at the beginning of the second verse of this letter to you:

Galatians 5: 22-23

John 6: 29

Ephesians 2: 8

I appreciate your time folks, I hope that you obtained some enjoyment and maybe even a little knowledge from the article. I pray that you and your loved ones will choose to have faith in God and in His love for you.

Christians Don’t Understand The Biblical Beginning Of Time For The Earth And All That Is On It

 

THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO MY FELLOW WORD PRESS BLOGGER AND BROTHER: JOSEPH

 

Joseph is a very intelligent young man whom is highly educated yet seeks the truth of the beginning of time of mankind and of our end of time. Joseph is a person who has looked at the Christian faith and what the churches are saying about the beginning of this planet and the beginning of mankind and he realizes that what the ‘Christian establishment’ is saying is simply ignorant and not at all the truth. I use the word truth with that word’s definition being Biblical truth, God’s truth, not yours or my personal version. To accomplish my task I must show what I am talking about by using the Bible. Most older folks are like me and prefer the King James Version (KJV) so I am going to use it and my wife’s American Standard Version (ASV). I am going to point out several passages from the first five chapters of the first book of the Bible (Genesis). This is so that you can follow me as I explain things. There are millions of people like Joseph who look at the passages, or listen to a Preacher talk about them and then have their inner voice go “this is just stupidity” then turn away from Christianity thinking ‘well that can’t be true’. When the Churches (the Bride of Christ), Preachers or Christians make these errors of knowledge they are, and have, caused the Spiritual death of many millions of people.

 

Christian Churches tend to take the first six days of ‘creation’ as a literal human six days even though Scriptures New Testament and Old Testament make it very plain that “God’s days are not our days” yet we people want to insist that they are. Moses (a friend of God) is credited with writing the first five books of the Bible. The book of Genesis covers more geological time than all of the other 65 books combined so let us start at the beginning of Genesis okay. I do not know exactly how much of our time that is one day of God’s time, no where does the Scriptures lay that out for us to know. By Scripture and human history using ‘our time’, the story of Adam and Eve is about 5,500 or so odd years ago. A simple question about ‘God’s time’ needs to be referenced to the concept of eternity, was does time matter in eternity, does it have any meaning? Could God’s day be a million of our years, ten million, a billion? Do you think the human race 5,500 years ago could have fathomed the concept of billions of years when just a few of their human generations was considered as ‘in days of old’? It has only been about 150 years now that humans have known of the existence of dinosaurs and yet even today many Churches teach that there is/was no such thing as the ‘pre-historic’ creatures. I have come across many people whom belong to Churches that say, “well, they did exist but that was day one”. This type of pure ignorance (lack of knowledge) has caused the Spiritual death of millions if not billions of people throughout this past 2,000 years. Just as the people of the Jewish faith don’t understand that the Messiah (promised one) was ‘the Word’ of God and has always been with God the Father even from the very beginning of ‘our time’, a lot of Church folks believe that ‘Jesus’ began when He was born as flesh in 4 B.C. in Bethlehem Israel. Lack of understanding makes a lot of folks walk away.

 

Please open your Bible to Genesis chapter one verses 26-28. This is where you find God speaking of the events of the sixth day where He created mankind. In the first 5 days God created the Earth, our Sun and our Moon, remember, not human days. In verse 26 we see the first place in Scripture where we are shown that ‘God’ is more than one ‘Being’. “And God said, let (Us) make man in our image, after (Our) likeness:…”. Now let us go down one verse to verse’s #27, 28. This is still ‘day six’, “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them”. “And God blessed ‘them’, and God said to ‘them’, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the Earth…”. Now, verse number 31 is the last verse of the first chapter of Genesis. In verse 31 it shows that the sixth day was complete.

 

To make a point I am going to quote the first three verses of chapter number two, these three verses show that day six is finished and tells of day seven. v 1) “Thus the heavens and the Earth were finished, and all the hosts of them.” v 2) “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all the work which He had made”. v 3) “And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made”.

 

Okay, now the Earth and mankind and womankind have been created and all of the seven days and the works of God are accounted for, correct? The Scriptures make very plain that all is done as far as creation is concerned so this has to mean that Adam and Eve have been created all ready, correct? Now, please go to verses 5 through 8, the seven days of creation are over yet at the end of verse 5 it says “…and there was not a man to till the ground”. What? Wait a moment haven’t we already been told that men and women have already been created? v 7) “And the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living Soul”. v 8) “And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man who He had formed”. Verses 9-14 describe the creation of the garden of God (Eden). In verse 15 it tells us that God took this man and put him into His garden (Eden) to keep it and cultivate it. Verse 20 tells us that this man who God had put into the garden had no partner, wait a moment, what happened to the men and women that God created on day six? In verse 19 we are first told that this man’s name was Adam, but where is Eve? In verse 21 God took one of Adam’s ribs and made Adam a woman whom was called Eve.

 

What we are very plainly being shown and told is that there was two creations of mankind. This second creation of man was where Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden were created. They are the first that “the breath of life was breathed into them and they became a living Soul”. There is no mention of this in the ‘first creation’ of mankind on ‘day six’! Now regarding the “there was no man to till the ground” in the time of ‘day six’ all we need to do is look at mans recorded history, it was only about 5-6000 years ago that man was turning from hunting gatherers in the Middle-East to becoming people who started staying more in one spot and tilling the earth for their food. About the same time frame of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden.

 

There is more that backs up what I am telling you here is the truth of the Scriptures than just what I have shown you so far. Chapter 3 tells us of the fall of Adam and Eve when they ate of the forbidden fruit of the tree of Good and Evil and were cast out of the Garden of God. In chapter 4 we are told the story of the first two sons of Adam and Eve whom they called Cain and Able. In verse 8 is where Cain murdered his brother Able. So, I have a question for you. At this exact point in time there are only 3 people on the whole Earth correct? You have Cain and his two parents and that is it, no one else, right? In verse 9 God confronted Cain about what he had done and God cast him out and told him of his punishments. Go to verse 14 where Cain is talking to God and told God that “every one who finds me will kill me”. Wait a minute, who the heck is ‘everyone’, there is only him his Mom and his Dad on the planet so who the heck is everyone? Verse 15 “And the Lord said to him, whosoever kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him seven fold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain (in case any finding him) should kill him”. Churches teach us that there wasn’t anyone else, so is God a liar, or maybe an idiot? Or, is it mankind that is mistaken?

 

Verse 16 tells us that Cain left where he was and went east into the land of “Nod” east of Eden. Verse 17 starts with “And Cain knew (had sex with) his wife”. Now wait a moment, what wife? Wasn’t there just himself, his Mom and Dad? Obviously that is not correct unless Cain was committing incest with his own Mom and that is obviously not so. Verse 17 tells us that Cain and his wife had a son and his name was Enoch. Then in the very next verse it says that Enoch had a son, now wait a minute, where did Enoch find him a wife at?

The issue I am showing you here is the very plain fact that there were (two) creations of humans, not just the one where Adam and Eve (the only real ‘Royal’ blood line) were created. I am going to end this article tonight with the words from chapter 5 verses 1& 2. “This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God created He him; Male and female created He them; (AND CALLED THEIR NAME ADAM), in the day when the were created”.

I hope that this information was helpful to some of you and to you Joseph. Good night, God bless you all.

(Philosophy/Poem) Ignorance Pure Ignorance

 IGNORANCE PURE IGNORANCE

 

Hiding from the truth, but do we even what it is

Yet it is something that we sometimes try to do

Our own secrets and truths we can’t hide from

Ignorance, pure ignorance, living like a fool

With age we all can look back at our mistakes

Back at the path of life we all chose to allow

 

 

looking back at all the faded smiles in our memories in time

Did we make the calls, or leave loved ones waiting by the phone

Did our ink upon much paper dry or did we even try to write

Does our own family know our hand like a fingerprint in time

Does our family we say we love even know the details of our face

Without love life is but wasted time, so have we wasted our life

 

 

Ignorance, pure ignorance the guilt of a wasted life

Tonight upon my bed I decided to change how I live

In time of deepest thought do we have anything to say

Was I only dreaming when I heard a voice speak to me

These words in night sleep said, ignorantly is how I lived

 

 

These last words that we hear in this prayer tonight, are they fit to be our last

Will they be the last this life has left, if we never hear the spoken word again

The Holy Spirit saying to my Soul did you do the best that you could have done

Does our conscience ever ask, why did we choose to live our life the way we did

Ignorance, pure ignorance the Angel says as he throws us into Hell’s fiery pit
