Hate and Lies Destroy   Leave a comment

Hate and Lies are demons. They dwell in the dark prison of evil. They are a serious threat to the human race. These demons searches for souls to occupy, to carry out their work. Their mission on Earth is to war against Love and Truth.
The demons of Hate and Lies, have destroyed many great and wonderful things. Love and Truth rebuilt those things upon a foundation that can never again be destroyed.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life.” Jesus Christ (KJV John 14:6)
” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
(KJV John 3:16)

One God One Power One World   Leave a comment

God is called by many different names. He introduce himself to us by the image of who we are, and the things we see in the universe, and life that exists in the world around us: We see the power of the wind and violent storms. We observe the many different changes in the universe, its beauty and calmness. And the power of lightning and thunder, that shakes Earth and cause fear.
God has created man in his own image and likeness. He has given us the ability to create things, and the intelligence to know the difference between right and wrong; Our physical makeup is an image of himself.

The Challenge By God To The Person That Questions His Existence:
The players in a game will change. But, the rules will remain the same.
God communicates with man as noted here:
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, that he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. (Job 33:15-17)
The Man Who Questioned God: The Challenge
“Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb? When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it, and brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors, and said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
Hast thou commanded the norning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place; That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment. And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken. Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death? Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all. Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof, that thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof? Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great? Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth? Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder; to cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man; to satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth? Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Areturus with his sons?
Knowest thou the ordiances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth? Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee? Can thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?
Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven, when the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions, when they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait? who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.
Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve? Canst thou number the months they fulful? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth? They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows. Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth and return not unto them.
Who hast sent out the wild ass free? or who hast loosed the bands of the wild ass? whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings. He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver. The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searches after every green thing.
Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib? Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee? Wilt thou trust him because his strength is great? or will thou leave thy labor to him? Wilt thou believe him that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?
Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacock? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich? which leaveth her eggs into the earth and warmest them in dust, and forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them. She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her’s: her labour is in vain without fear; Because God has deprived her of wisdom, neither has he imparted to her understanding. What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.
Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder? Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword. The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield. He swalloweth the the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet. He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha: and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high? She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place. From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off. Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.
Conclusion:
Moreover the Lord answered Job and said, Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? He that reporveth God, let him answer it.
Then Job answered the Lord and said, Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth. Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.
Then answered the Lord unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
Will thou disannual my judgment? Wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?
Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?
Then Job answered the Lord and said, I know that thou canst do everything, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not: things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
From the book of Job Chapters 38, 39, 40,41, 42
King James Version Bible

Never Assume Anything   Leave a comment

An assumption about a situation is likely to result in poor judgment, that can cause embarrassment, or harm, due to misunderstanding.
When the word “we” is misunderstood to mean “us” as in a couple
A man comes home on a Saturday, at noon, and hurriedly takes the luggage from a closet, and frantically, start knocking things around while putting items in the luggage. His partner hears the noise and runs out of the bedroom, sees the living room in a mess, and ask, “Why, are you packing?” He answered, “We are leaving town!” His partner assumes, “We” means “Us” as in relation to the two of them as a couple, grabs two of the luggage and begin packing them, excited to be leaving with him.
After the luggage were packed, the partner, returns to the living room and find all the other luggage gone, and the man was not there. Standing alone with a luggage in each hand, and hearing the words like a broken record of a sad song, that won’t stop playing, echoing “We are leaving town!” The words are stuck in the partner’s head, and all the emotions a human being can feel in such a situation are present within the body, mind, and soul, of such a person.
There were clues that the partner should have seen, that would have led to asking more questions that could have avoided being caught off guard.
‘Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” King Solomon (Proverbs 4:7 KJV)

There IS No Love As Great As This LOVE   Leave a comment

Love expressed from a parent to a child, to protect and to provide for
The time a child sacrifices to spend with a parent, to express caring
The LOVE a man shows to his wife, and the many ways she rewards him, with her LOVE in return
The precious LOVE shown to that special someone, whose presence is felt in every heartbeat as ONE

Above all LOVE is the LOVE of God, whose LOVE never fail.
Everyday his LOVE is shown by each breath we take, and the things we see, the sound we hear, and the things we smell and touch.
To hear the sound of thunder, seeing the fiery lightning bolts, and feeling the power of its strikes, that shakes the ground underneath us, is a reminder that it is God’s Grace and Mercy that controls nature, to keep us safe from the power of Earth Disasters.
To Feel The Presence of God
To feel the warmth of the sun, and look into a beautiful sunrise
To see a beautiful sunset
On a night when the moon and the stars light up the sky, and a falling star, or many stars that fall are visible to our eyes:
Our hearts are delighted with happiness, and from within our soul we speak to God, a prayer of thanks. And he speaks back to us with a breath of fresh air filled with a sweet fragrance from the sky covering us with his LOVE
The Spirit of the Good Samaritan, lives on in the Hearts of people who reaches out to others, to lend a helping hand and provide comfort, in their times of need. In all these things, the LOVE of God is shown. There is no Love as great as this LOVE.

Fear Without Evidence   Leave a comment

No one or anything should be condemned, without justification of evidence.

Fear without justification of evidence, has condemned those who were innocent of the things they were accused of, and caused them harm. God help us to overcome fear of the unknown. Teach us to know what is right. Your wisdom and knowledge is greater and is above all others. Therefore, power is in your hands; and condemnation is justified according to your judgment.

Bull Snake: Bite is not venomous
Food consumption: The bull snake consumes birds and birds eggs, ground squirrels, gophers, rabbits, and rodents. The bull snake like others, have been falsely accused of being a threat that could cause harm to others. And the need to prevent a threat against its species, without evidence, they have been condemned without justification, and killed because of fear. The purpose of the bull snake is a great asset to help protect the food exchange, from the destruction of animals, that destroy seeds and plants.

This is the bull snake that drove away the field mice, and the gophers from our yard, that were pests; and stopped the big ugly mounds of dirt made by the gophers on our lawn. We no longer see any mice around. When I told my husband about this snake, he went in search of it, to get rid of its existence. I pointed out to him, all of the good things the snake had done for us. After considering the evidence, he agreed that the snake should stay. And he warned me, that snake is going to get bigger. My response was, he will still be the same. It is an innocent harmless, living creature.

Perhaps, this is the same belief, those who fear others, believe they should be removed from society, because of their appearance, and not the contributions they made to make our society a better place for all people and animals to live in peace.

Flesh vs. Spirit: the War Within   Leave a comment

Whether trying to maintain a desired weight, remaining faithful to a spouse or reaching a goal, temptation exists – causing its victim to make a choice and sometimes several choices. When the individual feels guilty and want to do good by correcting mistakes, but finds themselves powerless against the temptation, the battle is within -thereby, causing the individual to become imbalanced. The flesh and the spirit are now at war.

Paul, the Apostle, clearly understood these things. He stated, ” For I know that in me [that is, in my flesh] dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but  the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.” Romans 7:18-20.

No human being, is empowered to live above temptation. But, we can find ways to control our fleshly desires, and to reach our goals. It is too difficult to fight these battles alone – to do so, often leads to self destruction. For more information, I recommend this book to inspire courage, hope and strength.
