Truth Be Told! Mary On the Contrary

Tags

On the contrary, gentle Mary would be aghast at all the attentions given to her! She would point to commandment number 1 and 2 and turned us away from “idolatry” even of herself! It grieves her heart that such blindness has crept into the body of Christ. If she were still in the grave she would turn over! But because we know all the saints are given eternal life from the beginning of inception as a faithful follower and consistent disciple of Jesus Christ and even surpassing physical death unto heaven’s gate and Jesus’ handmade mansion for us, we know Mary, the Mother of Jesus abides among the righteous saints.

Commandment 1 “You shall have no other gods before me.”

Commandment 2 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.  You shall not bow down to them or worship them.” Exodus 20:4-5a NIV

Assumptions should never be assumed. Only revelation by Jesus Christ can be depended on. Apparitions, visions, ecstasy are subject to human error and worse fallen angel deception! The worse sin would be for a clergy to bend to the will of the people, or laymen, or congregation’s wishes and cries. Reminding me of Israelites cry for meat rather than be content with the manna of heaven.

Speaking of Manna, this manna from heaven was a simple instruction for a people to follow and learn. But alas they tire of the lesson and demanded a break from it! God unwillingly gave them a taste of their greed, he spilled so much meat on them that they were sick of it! And lamented once again for it to stop! Such an obstinate and willful people they were! In the end, of The Holy Bible it turns out that The Manna was the Bread of Life who IS Jesus Christ symbolically. Every word of God is food for the spirit. Reading of the word of God is regeneration of the mind. And sustaining the new creature who is a spiritually born again. This manna is the word of God. Every word of God is the breath of God. It is not literal food but spiritual food. It is a mystery but it is real nonetheless.

Be wary of seducing spirits in the end of the age. A time of severe testing so much so that mature Christians would be persuaded if they knew not the word of God! “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.” 1st Timothy 4:1 NIV

Jesus Christ prayed a prayer of Unity. But he also taught to obey His Commands IF you love him! Walk the narrow way. Stay clear of the majority! BE HOLY like your Father is Holy!

Jesus Christ ALWAYS prayed to the Father. He never advocated invoking anyone from beyond! Including Enoch and Elijah who were perfect and taken up without passing thru death in their humanity. In essence they transfigured. Which brings me to another topic, Mary’s assumption, is an assumption made by the Fathers of the Catholic church. It is an erroneous one because clearly, in the Bible it is recorded who was taken up to heaven bodily, only Enoch and Elijah were recorded as such. To quote Revelation “” that Mary is the Queen of Heaven usurps the identity of the Bride of Christ. The Bride of Christ being the Church (or righteous saints) are Jesus Christ’s Bride. Jesus Christ is the expected Bridegroom.

“Let us rejoice and be glad
    and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
    and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean,
    was given her to wear.”

(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)

Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.” Revelation 19:7-9 NIV

Arrested on March 5, 2014

David Allen has been a sidewalk counselor for years at 1-45’s Planned Parenthood facility. He is faithful to the crusade of speaking truth in teenagers’ and young adults’ lives. Because he himself has suffered the loss of making a terrible decision in allowing his girlfriend to have an abortion he doesn’t want others to make the same soul numbing mistake. The employees of Planned Parenthood are sick of his presence and the hired police of the Houston Police Department are weary of him.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. ~James 1:2-4 New American Standard Bible

Many don’t understand his fervor and why he keeps coming back. This he does under the influence of the Holy Spirit. It is not always an easy and joyful thing to endure the verbal and physical persecution of those who oppose him and his God-given mission. However, in ministering to those about to walk into the darkest time of their lives he is compassionate and wants to spare them from a huge mistake that could cost them their peace of mind, soul deprivation, and worse.

For through the Law I died to the Law, so that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. 21 I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.”~Galatians 2:19-21 NASB

By the power of the Holy Spirit he is able to overcome his own issues by understanding that his child is in Heaven waiting for him. David has peace because Jesus Christ lives in his heart. May God continue to empower him each day and every week. The cloud of saints are watching him, his friends are praying for this ministry, and his “foes” are being changed by his consistent witness and supernatural love for them. If you want to know more about his story you are welcome go to this hyperlink: HornOfSamuel. It is an e-book that he has written about his personal struggles and triumphs. David Allen is a modern-day Christ follower.

The Problem With Too Many American Christians is that they have let the devil in their houses. They are playing with fire thru the use of psychic networks. I don’t doubt they work miracles and wonders! I admonish fellow Christians to get out of such practices. It is unfaithfulness to God. He alone should be their provision. He is a capable Living God to meet human needs. I don’t care if psychic networks feature some of the finest and most experienced psychic advisers, astrologers, tarot readers, numerologists and clairvoyants in America. I don’t care if they have enhanced the lives of countless numbers of people with their accurate and insightful professional guidance. It is biblically wrong!

Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well favoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. ~Nahum 3:4, King James Version

I assure you God can be your “trusted friend”. Who, like a good friend, is always there for you.
I am confident that you will find your reading to be backed by seducing spirits of Satan and his fallen angels. It is why “psychic” readings are often a pleasant and rewarding experience. Seducing spirits seduces.
We in America are deserving of God’s Judgements like he warned and carried out in Micah 5. Only the prayers of the upright will stay God’s Hand, but only for a time.

And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.
9 Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.
10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots:
11 And I will cut off the cities of thy land, and throw down all thy strong holds:
12 And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers:
13 Thy graven images also will I cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands.
14 And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities.
15 And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.~Micah 5:8-15, King James Version

Should there be peace? NO! Not as long as America’s Christians keep turning to the black arts.

And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many? ~2 King 9:22, King James Version

The following words are strong and harsh but the truth is spoken.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. ~Galatians 5:19-21, King James Version

The key to hope out of this dilemma of “not inherit(ing) the kingdom of God” is to “STOP” doing such things and turn away from these abominable activities! There is hope!
To obey God is better than personal sacrifices.

And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice. ~1 Samuel 15:22-24, King James Version

Teach not your children by your example of sinning. Turn from those ways and your household will have a chance to be saved!

When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. ~Deuteronomy 18:9-11, King James Version

Jesus Christ was tempted in every way by the devil. If he can resist so can you! He was human too so he could have fallen. But he knew who the enemy was, so he was able to defy him and his tricks.

…he was afterward an hungred.
And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. ~Matthew 4:2b-4, King James Version

Please finish Matthew 4 for the rest of the historical account by Apostle Matthew of the devil tempting Jesus. Each temptation is not above what a person could experience. Some people are more pre-disposed than others. Because Jesus overcame, he can show you the way and help you overcome by His Spirit. The Holy Spirit. And furthermore, he can solve the age old problem of “wages of sin is death” meaning he is the sacrifice that satisfied God’s wrath. This is a very complicated theology but it is there in the Scriptures and it is the truth. He is and was perfect in every way and because he laid down his life for you, you don’t have to die an eternal death but upon your natural death, will enter life eternal because of His gift of Life to you. All you need to do is recognize him as the Savior and he will help you turn from your sins; the provision that God gave to mankind. The Father of Heaven is that loving to give us a provision, Jesus Christ.

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. ~Matthew 4:17, King James Version

“We Are Not The Enemy”

“We are not the enemy,” reiterates Tim Miller, Founder and Director of Texas Equusearch. In today’s telephone interview he passionately goes over what needs to be done to clean up the bayous of Houston, Texas.

Founder and Director of Texas Equusearch

Founder and Director of Texas Equusearch

The Bayou City as it is known to locals could benefit greatly to having its bayous scanned with sonar equipment on a monthly basis to keep it clean of new appearance of vehicles, namely cars, which could be dumped for insurance scams purposes, or due to innocent floodings caused by ‘mother nature’. Whatever reason cars end up in bayous can and will be cleaned out by tow truck companies willing to give a free hand to help pull out these abandoned vehicles.

Initial scouring with boat and divers for sunken cars.

Initial scouring with boat and divers for sunken cars.

One thing, that need to be overcome is that a new type of ordinance needs to be introduced, discussed and passed by city hall is the ability for wrecker companies to cash in on these heavy cars that would not have ‘owner title’ to them. This would help the companies defray operating costs when they can scrap the retrieved cars for metal. Of course, providing after seeing VIN numbers don’t match up to unscrupulous “disappearances” of cars reported stolen and/or the truly stolen vehicle dumped by scared thieves would then allow wrecker companies to be disposed of them.

Another reason to clean Houston’s miles and miles of bayous is for better flood control. Taking old cars out would create better flow of the water currents thereby making safer bayous to travel in either by boat, or for swimming in, or wading while fishing for fish.

On a serious note, “vehicle recovery should help criminal investigation proceed” in murders, suicides as well as thefts. “On the plus side, the HPD can go over waters once a month for ‘new cars’ dumped and send a message to criminals, “hide your cars somewhere else!” ”

Texas Equusearch believes they can do this at very low costs. But for some reason they aren’t able to enlist corporate funding for its recovery operations. In other cities around the nation and even in other countries they don’t have this issue. So it is very curious as to why. After all Houston has a healthy economy and there are plenty of oil and gas companies to pitch in. So for those concerned citizens of Houston who would like to contribute to the clean up of Houston bayous please go to this hyperlink Texas Equuearch and donate thru PayPal, or credit card. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover are accepted. Or send checks to Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search & Recovery, P.O. Box 395, Dickinson, Texas 77539. Texas Eqquesearch is a professional humanitarian agency whose accounts are open anytime to audits.

Director of Search Operations for Texas Equusearch, Mr. Black answered a question I had concerning if there were cars in other bayous around Houston. “We found at least five more vehicles in Buffalo Bayou, just east of downtown Houston.” He further added “We only searched a very small portion of the long bayous that flow through the communities around Houston. Many, many more miles of bayous have not been searched.” Mr. Black mentioned the gruesome and possible task ahead of them. ” Most of the vehicles are probably stolen or ditched as insurance jobs. But considering the number of people who have been long-missing from the Houston area; the chances are good that some of those vehicles might hold the skeletons of some missing persons.” When I asked about the upcoming recovery of cars he confirmed that there will be an initial dive and recovery tomorrow, May 17th, along part of a Braes Bayou. Tow trucks and its drivers will be on stand by. I will witness a part of the excitement, whether it is to see the divers dive or the actual recovery of cars remain to be seen.

Texas Equusearch is not the enemy but a great help and a huge blessing to the Houston community aka known as The Bayou City. Those who think otherwise ought to be ashamed of themselves!

A Huge Thank You to the divers giving of their time, equipment and boats! God bless you!

A BIG Thank You to those wrecker companies for their time, equipment and trucks! God bless you!

Please give a Big Thank You to Texas Equusearch by donating. Thank You! God bless you!

Secrets Lie with 100+ Sunken Cars

bayou problem

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was dumbfounded when I saw the recent news of over 100 cars identified by satellite in our city’s bayous specifically South Central Houston. I was angered by the negative reaction of an HPD officer telling a private citizen to “shut up”. This angers me because first off, it is not a problem that can’t be solved. This is a very wealthy city who can afford the expenses of cleaning up. And even if there “wasn’t enough money” in the City Hall coffers good citizens would rise up to the occasion and pay for it. Houstonians know it is important to have safe drinking water, safe shores for fishers, safety all around. It is awful that there has been unknown and possible grave sites harboring right in people’s backyards! As Equusearch has mentioned, it would be right to get VIN numbers off the car license plates to at least see if they belong to “missing persons” reported.

The following street names are near these bayous. I am sure many residents and professional businesses would not appreciate having potential graves in their waterways. It is a horrible and disparaging thought to consider!

Wheeler Avenue,  Calhoun Rd,  Texas Spur 5,  Old Spanish Trail,  Gulfgate,  Pine Valley,  Lawndale, Wayside, Lawndale Street, 75th Street,  E. Navigation Blvd,  Carrolton St, Jean St,  Sutherland St,  Katherine St,  Renshaw St,  Old Spanish Trail (bayous loop in and out of this windy road),  Alternate 90 Interstate, Gulf Freeway aka 45 Interstate, Beatty St,                    N. MacGregor Way,  Sylvan Rd,  Idylwood Dr,  Merry Lane,  Fairfield Dr,  Wildwood Way, Park Lane,  Country Club Bayou,  Baldinger St,  Dallas St,  S. 72nd St,  Forrest Hill Blvd,  Forest Hill Blvd, Pasadena St,  Glendale St,  Jamaica St,  Woodvale St,  Kemton St,  Layton St,  Hudson St,  S. 79th St,  S. 80th St,  Brays St,  Brays Bayou, Brays Bayou Lower Bank Hike and Bike Trail,  Broadway St,  Galveston Rd., Park Place Blvd,  Greater Third Ward,  Second Ward,  Meadowbrook,  Allendale,  Highway 225 aka  La Porte Freeway.

If you are remotely upset about it as I am, please call your district councilman/woman and bring this sobering subject to their attention. I am sure they and the citizens of Houston can come up with something creative and uplifting to raise funds for the poor neighbors of the Greater Third Ward and Second Ward. Houston is known as The Bayou City but don’t let it be known for something like this!

To the Houston Police Department officer: “And Jesus perceiving it said, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have no bread?Matthew 16:8 American Standard Version Bible.

God’s Mandate

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pope John Paul 2 and Pope John XXIII are viewed today, April 27 2014, by the Catholic church as newly minted saints. This goes against God’s mandate. Which is to pray only to Him. To ask Him for anything but not to ask others (angels/deceased) for help, petition or even offer gifts (roses, flowers, cards).

Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God.~Leviticus 26:1

What do the Moroccan Jews, Roman Catholics and have in common? Veneration of Saints.

What does heaven bound saints and angels have in common? People like to pray to them, or talk to them like family. They view them as if you were going to your family member to ask for help. This is their way of reasoning it out.
http://books.google.com/books?id=Hk9wCuiT7bEC&pg=PA13#v=onepage&q&f=false

Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.~Jeremiah 10:14

Petitions to saints such as prayers like these, see: http://www.catholic.org/prayers/prayer.php?s=73 are not biblical. The Jews didn’t pray to Enoch, the Jews didn’t pray to Elijah, or ask them to pray for their needs. Even those two individual went to heaven in body! The devout Jews prayed to Jehovah God. Whose name is Yahweh. Christians may pray to Jesus Christ because He is God, image of the Father in Heaven. This is why Christian pray to Son of God. NOT because he is a saint or a even a messiah but because He is proven as God.

If you find yourself praying more to saints and angels and less to God himself…then you are worshipping. Remember, God is a Jealous God and wants you for Himself. He shared His Word with you so that you can ‘hear Him’ and He want to ‘hear your prayers’ To Him not via a mediator, servant, saint or angel. He is zealous for you!

Cast out medals, cast out images, prayer cards, cast out all things “saint”. These items are an abomination to the Lord God. Turn your heart completely to Jesus Christ alone. He alone, can meet your need. He is faithful to hear your prayers, petitions and cries. He sent the Holy Spirit to comfort you.

Jesus Christ became the high priest and died once because he was the perfect paschal lamb without blemish and without sin. There is no more need to offer himself once again either on the cross, on the altar, nor in the Mass, or Eucharist.

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25

God Almighty is a God of One. Being he is the Only God and with that He is passionate for our allegiance to Him. He also, knows how dangerous it is for us to pay special attentions to others. As these others are not of Him, nor his family. Angels and saints always point to him. Never to themselves or demand anything for themselves. Also, whatever they say must line up with the Word of the Lord, meaning The Torah and the New Testaments.

Jesus Was Buried Only One Day

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Does the blatant statement shake you? unsettles you? or even shock you?
I speak the title aloud because this is what the ‘modern day’ church believes in. Every denomination except the Messianic movement. Why is The Church as well as ecclesia communities perpetuating and worse believing this mathematical error?
The way “they believe” is that Jesus Christ died on Friday (sunset). Thus from Sunset Friday to Sunset Saturday is ONE DAY according to God’s time/day explanation in Genesis. Sunset Saturday to Sunset Sunday is One Day. Jesus’ tomb was seen to be emptied on Dawn Sunday. He wasn’t even dead 48 hours! This is SO WRONG! And why should it matter?? Who cares if 1 plus 1 is 3, or 5 + 5 is 20. Exactly! It isn’t RIGHT!! Yet who cares…?
Jesus Christ has said that the temple would be torn down in three days. He was prophetically speaking of himself and his death and burial.
He was crucified and horribly I might add. And so he was Very Dead when he was placed into the tomb. No chance for a recovery on his own, even if he was ‘secretly whisked’ away and nurtured back to health by the best doctors. It just wasn’t happening. He was Very Dead in that Rock hewn tomb.
So why the big fuss over how many days or nights he ‘slept’ in the earth? Because Truth should Reign. Especially around such an important ‘historical’ person.
Because if you look at that number three and count backwards from the time he was resurrected you will find it does not land on a Friday which so many presupposes that he was crucified on. “They” are confused by the scripture verse that mention “Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.“. What they fail to understand is this “sabbath” is not the Saturday or 7 day or last day of the week. The word sabbath is also used as a “holy day” or “feast day” and in this passage it spoke of the Jewish high sabbath, “Passover”.  (shabbat godal=high sabbath)
Now, some may question, well wasn’t that the Last Supper the disciples had with Jesus Christ? NO. It was not. This Last Supper was simply what it states, the last supper. It was not on a “feast day” nor a “holy day”. Keep this in mind as you view this whole scenario of Jesus trial, scourging, crucifixion, as well as burial time. The first time I heard this, it made my head swim! So be patient with yourself. It is a hard teaching as it goes against everything you have been taught and what the masses including the clergy continues to believe!
What does it matter? It matters. Truth always matters.
Rather than go in Chronological order I will begin where we all agree. The Empty Tomb and Visitation of Angels being on Sunday Morning. That being said, it cannot be counted as Third day because biblically a day is considered from Sunset to Sunset. Because the emptied tomb was discovered at Dawn Sunday it can be surmised that Jesus was brought back to life by God soon after Sunset Saturday, fulfilling the prophecy of being in the heart of earth three days.
The preceding day, is Saturday or 7th day or last day of the week. Also, it can be seen as Sunset Friday to Sunset Saturday. Nothing happened on this day. Just Rest by the Jewish people. This day would be number 3 in Jesus’ sleep.

The preceding day is Sunset Friday to Sunset Saturday. This day is usually set aside for preparation of Rest on the Sabbath. This is considered Friday. This day would be number 2 in Jesus’ sleep.

The preceding day, is Thursday aka Sunset Wednesday to Sunset Thursday. Today is Passover, a holy Jewish feast day. This is why the fuss by the Jewish clergy to get Jesus off the cross before sunset because they would begin celebrating a feast day in a few short hours. No one could ‘touch the dead’ and not be defiled. So ‘clean up’ was required. It is also the reason for the ‘rushed night trial’ to expedite things. This day would be number 1 in Jesus’ sleep.

Even though this explains when the cycle of three days in the earth begins and ends we are not finished. It is not complete to not mention when the night trial and the last supper happened. The preceding day of “Thursday” would be Wednesday aka Sunset Tuesday to Sunset Wednesday. Much happened this day, what with the Last Supper, the warning of a disciple’s betrayal (Judas), the challenge by Christ that Peter would deny him three times and a rooster’s cry would call him out on it, as well as the horrendous night trial by cowardly Pilate and the hypocritical and jealous clergy.

As the Catholic Church rightly and dogmatically do, I declare Christ’s death, as this is where the power of Christianity lies in! His sacrificial death for our sins. Now, that is power! He is the Lamb that was slain. Jesus Christ is that paschal lamb. Praise be to God!

For our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed ~1 Cor. 5:7 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition

And suddenly the end came.


Are we walking in a fulfilling prophecy in the near future?
Strange celestial happenings are due to transpire on April 15 and Oct 8 of this year of our Lord, 2014. Two separate total lunar ellipses are expected.
In the past when such heavenly signs appear major events happened around those time frames. Not always right on the self-same hour nor even on the appointed day nonetheless those world events came forth. Specifically, I speak of two, one when Israel became a state nation and the other when there was the infamous 6-day war against Israel.

With that said, would there be another national event to happen? Should we expect it? Regardless, the more important thing is to ‘be ready’ at all times. To be ready for the King of all kings to appear! Yes, I speak of a mysterious prophecy of the Son of man coming forth on ‘clouds’ with power and might. His angels will come forth and help Him bring all His Children to Him in the Air. He doesn’t come To Earth in His Second Coming. But rather, His Bride -The Church- will ascend up to Him in glorious, transformed sinless bodies! It is mysterious as how that happens and wonderful that it will happen. Just as the 500 dead had been resurrected at the earthquake in the self-same hour of Jesus Christ commending his spirit to The Father. This is and was a real event that happened! 500 souls re-awoken, walking and talking to real people. How I would love an account of their stories and what they actually said and shared in words!

Jesus Christ, equated the times of the end as being ‘normal’ like the days of Noah when people married and drink and eat and were merry oblivious to the coming catastrophe coming upon them regardless of over a hundred years of warnings by Prophet Noah. People of today, and even Christians have ‘fallen asleep’ to this fact and are tempted to sin to ‘enjoy the pleasures’ of this world. Remember the warning of the book of Revelation, which are the words of Jesus Christ’s himself, speaks of a time when the world celebrates and says, “Peace, peace, peace” and share and send gifts to each other. This is a time of when real prophets are slain and left unburied only to be frightfully resurrected to the horror of unrepentant sinners and wayward Christians. I assure His Revelation is not a parable!

I am not predicting His coming is due on a certain day or even year. I am just pointing out and saying look to the political ‘events’ as they are part of the gnawing groans of the earth and the sin that prevail on it. Politicians are people and make all sorts of decisions for the ‘good of humanity’. If their motives are not in check especially by their measuring moral stick then woe to mankind! Many are Christians but how many are truly following God’s leading? How many “Christ followers” are really in ‘love with the Lord’ to deny themselves and do as He says?

And as were the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man.

For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,

and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall be the coming of the Son of man. ~Matthew 24:37-39 asv

Then certain of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying, Teacher, we would see a sign from thee.

But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given it but the sign of Jonah the prophet:

for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” ~Matthew 12:38-40 asv

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” ~Revelation 21:6 kjv

And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” ~Revelation 16:9 kjv

vvv

and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” ~Matthew 24:30 asv

vvv

 And I will give unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth…And their dead bodies lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified...men look upon their dead bodies three days and a halfthe breath of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them that beheld them.” ~ Revelation 11 asv

vvv

 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God. ~Matthew 27:51-54 kjv

Ash Wednesday

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

My first time to do a Ash Wednesday. An announcement was made to the general congregation to attend. And I learned from a Little Black Book that it is not a holy day of obligation but that it was a day to remember who we are and where we will return, which is dust. Ash Wednesday precedes Lent observation which will begin soon. I don’t know how soon. Forgive me, but I am still learning!

The homily given was about God and His love and how we should draw near to Him because He does love us so much. And that He keep us in the center of His palm, meaning we are His Children and He loves us very much.

Later, after receiving the wet ash marked in a dark cross on the forehead in accepting the token of remembrance that one is human and not to be full of one’s self. One day, each of us returns to the ground. Be humble and know that you have a Creator in Heaven who made you.

Lifting my eyes to the massive physical cross suspending in the air with Jesus slain on it serves to remind me how He suffered and how much He did love me and does love me as well as you. The glory of His love! in verb, in action.

Humbling myself in crossing my arms as symbol of submission to The Church’s way. Being to receive a blessing from a priest or a volunteer parishioner by their words, “God bless you” and touching lightly my shoulder. A transference of the Holy Spirit and their anointing to me.

Afterwards, I took photos of stain glass windows. And lite a candle for Father Joseph to intercede for our family. The communion of saints per “cloud of witnesses”. How heavenly and wonderful! I was so blessed to attend my neighborhood parish today (Wednesday).

Moral Compass vs Magnetic Variations

Tags

, , , , , ,

168157_138080246256840_100001645951817_233276_2382248_nHow does the Moral Compass come into this article? It is something that I have been thinking of for awhile. A sense if you will. On how does one know if they are on the right track? If too many Biblical teachers are teaching myriad of things, ideas, stout dogmas, unrelenting doctrines. If the world had fallen on its ear. If whole civilizations seem in an uproar, who, what is the Moral Compass?

http://googlecompass.com/MagneticVariationAdjustment.htm

For those who don’t know what a physical compass is, it is a hand-held device invented by man to show the way to north, east, south and west. It does not need a battery as it is powered by outside forces, namely Magnetic North. Even I am learning what Magnetic is during this writing and it is this, “The compass needle is attracted by magnetic force produced in the outer liquid part of the Earth’s core.” How fundamental, yet I didn’t realize that before!

So in a spiritual and moral sense who or what is our compass? Is it the Holy Bible? The Holy Spirit? People’s Opinions? Government Rules and Regulations? Television Programs? The Pubic Media?  Is it The Messiah? Who or what is our compass?

The simplest is to follow a leader, and one full of personality that can hold your attention, and one that appeals to your intellect. Many go after this kind of leader for a Compass. Problem is, what if the leader is not following the Right Compass?

True Compass even needs an adjustment in Magnetic Variation to determine what True is! And this comes about with math. So is Math the True Compass? Some actually revere math. Some mathematicians can completely understand the universe thru math. They get a little romantic ideologies that is beyond the average person. Arithmetic is not the True Compass. However, it is an important factor in it.

What then is Magnetic Variations in the Moral Compass?

Simply this. Love. Life should be tempered with Agape’ Love.

Because love soothes the rough edges and makes honor situations that was wronged. Agape’ love overlooks the mistakes and flaws of an individual. Love triumphs in almost every circumstance. Where political correctness may scream attentions, Love speaks truth in grace.

So what and who is the True Compass?

Is it your feelings, senses, intuition? Is it experience? Experience can be a good thing, IF it is measured with the Magnetic Variations built into it. Otherwise, experience can become a falsehood even if you experienced the reality of it. Just because you have an experience with something or someone doesn’t mean it was a True experience. It could very darn well be Real but it wasn’t True in the sense of Right Moral, a Rightness.

Another Magnetic Variation is the motive. And love is the strongest motive that can move a person to do good, and become a better individual. This is another important factor in finding the True Compass in your life.

What of laws, rules, regulations, bylaws? Personal boundaries, civil responsibilities, family expectations? What of those? Could they be the True Compass? These are important things to form a civilization.

When one wants to mimic a celebrity, a wealthy person or even a good man or woman then you are desiring something akin to what that individual has obtained. This is human nature, to desire something of someone else but it usually rooted in selfishness, jealousy and worse entitlement. What is the solution to this malady?

Looking to God. Who is a Personal Being and therefore a Personal God who wants a Personal and loving relationship with you. He can fulfill much of your desires IF they are based on His holiness. This is the satisfying part of Life. To please God the Creator who designed you to become the image of His Character. Holiness is Love in Verb Action. To be holy, is to take action. To be holy like the Father in Heaven is His objection for each of his created human beings.

Incredibly, He sent an Image of Himself which is in the form of Jesus Christ. Here is the True Compass. The divine man to be your Moral Compass. Won’t you let Him show you the correct way? The way of Life, and Life eternal?

Agape’ Love:

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. ~First Corinthians 13 New American Standard Version

Jesus Christ:

I called upon the Lord in distress:
the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear:
what can man do unto me? ~ Psalm 118

Church to help you:

And I tell you, you are Peter,[a] and on this rock[b] I will build my church, and the powers of death[c] shall not prevail against it.[d] 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,[e] and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:18-19 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition

Find a home church that lifts up the lifestyle of godliness, and sanctification thru the helps of brothers and sisters in Christ, thru the power of the Holy Spirit, thru the teaching of the Bible, and the admonition of The Church to live out its principles in reflecting God’s love and His image in your person, words and deeds.

Turn away, and reject teachings and ‘religious’ organizations that does not reflect Jesus Christ’s beatitudes. The Beatitudes should be reflected in a church’s attitude.
