One Road that leads to Life!!!

 

A Road I did not want to take!!!...

Since I have the memory of a pigeon, I forgot the name of the blog a friend of mine was writting, about traveling in some other road!!! And can relate to take the grassy path and take off my shoes and just romp into the no-where of the meadow!!! I traveled the level path for long time and who knows a romp in the grass seem what the doctor ordered. That blog was very nice and well written!!! And when I was young I would take my pet dog 'whitty' and take him to the levy and watch him dive into the river water and how that dog enjoyed that activity!!!...

And now that I'm old I just go to the park and perhaps hear of a whisper of long past things when thing were new and there wasn't a care in the world but to explore God's wonderful nature and take and read another book and watch my favorite TV show and experience my new tennis shoes, my price possesion!!! I would hop on my Texas Flyer bike and take her out to the neighborhood and see take the road!!!...

And I ask when or where and how did we loose the dream and the eyes to see and the ears to hear??? When did my heart become hard and callous and unbelieving??? Is it when I became divorced??? Lost my life job??? And this incideous illness that has me shacked to this chair, dialisys machine or chemo thing I have now learned to detest???...

And when did I stop heaing the melodies of life and look forward to the changing Seasons and Christmas was a wonder and who know nothing made us stumble!!! And when learned about God, did we learn a cannot-do God, who does not care??? And when did we stop dreaming and hoping that things will be like things were then when we were like children in age and heart???...

And when learned about God word, did we dive into that river with joy??? Or was it a cruel God waiting for us there in the trenches of those pages and chapters??? And when we learned that all things are possible with God, why did we doubt like Thomas and say, "...unless I touch his side and feel the holes in his hands, I will not believe...!!!"

And what if God took us to back then like it used to be when were well!!! Will it be like he says, "When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith in the earth???..." Will the faithful be there and say, "I've been waiting for you for a long time and never lost hope on you my God!!! My king!!! My Salvation!!!"...

And in closing God says that he told some that men should always pray and not loose heart!!!...

May you be blessed. Amen.

One Vision I did not want to understand!!!

The Vision of the towel rack and the tiddy-bowl brush!!!

Last night I woke up at 1:35 AM in the morning and was tossing and turning and just couldn't sleep!!! I was not hungry or thirsty or anything!!! I wasn't worried!!! But I couldn't put a prayer together and I knew that there was something wrong!!! But at the break of dawn God helped me with a vision of seen a shower towel in a rack and tiddy-bowl brush standing on the floor!!! And the way I felt was if I was preaching the gospel to the towel and the brush, and somehow that made more sense!!!...

Innatimated objects just hang there on the rack and or stand by the side of the bowl!!! And this object don't revile back and are ready to dry and ready to scrub and hesitation on that!!! And they wait patienty there on call until it time for them to be used and take action!!! We shower and put them back!!! And we wash the bowl and we put it back on it's stand ready of the timeless wait until next time!!!...

And in the bible I keep coming back to John 8, where Jesus tell the Jews that they are from below and that he is from above and affirmatedly tells them that they will die in their sins!!! And then I turn to Romans 12 where Paul exhorts those in the Church there to be reformed in the image of God!!! And certainly Paul was more optomistic about the church than Jesus was about the Jews!!!...

But Paul make this acclamation that it is by the tender mercies of God that should not conform with the mold of this world. And that would mean that they should earnestly pray that they should turn and be really like Christ is and show the real fruits of the real spirit of God!!!...

And is there still time to scrub away the drows of this world and make the bowl clean??? And if else are we ready for the towel after we have become clean from rinsing of washing??? Can there be still be hope to becoming clean??? After so many exhortations and warning and baptisms in the message of the truth, are we still in the scrub the bowl stage???...

In 2Timothy 3 Paul tells of some who are always learning but never quite come really to the knowledge of the truth!!! We shower and shower but we can never really become clean!!! We just don't get the signal from heaven but are tuned to the signal of the world and its deception!!! But Paul had hope, invoking the tender mercies of God that we abandon the mold in filth of this world...

May you be blessed. Amen.

The Sermon on the Mount...!!!

 

 
 
Pixel
 
 

I turned in to a community college library and checked out a public computer and got giant referece bible there and open it to I think Matthew 5, to the Sermon on the Mount. And it must of been wonderful to hear Jesus preach something that would put us in a mountain, the high places of the world!!!...

And I particular want to look at "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy..." And how wonderful that is to hear, that there is a blessing in being kind to others and thoughtful of those who have less or unfortuntate in some way life has treated us and maybe you!!!...

And certainly in our secular society we want to be number one in all things, school, job, family, and even in our relationship, there a tug of war and to who calls the shots in all this different places!!!...

And taking a second chair in the band is just not enough!!! We are bored with second places!!! We want first, first, first!!!...

And this is a mistake because life doesn't open doors on the first knock and the gueese don't come on the first call and a son or daughter doesn't get the message the first time you warn him or her about something they should know!!!...

And this is about making mistakes!!! God why do we have to make mistakes!!! Your could of made us perfect in judgement at all times!!! Why??? Why??? Why!!!...

And certainly God did not make a mistake that we have to pray and work hard to obtain something in life worth having!!! How will we appreaciate something God did not let you think about a little before the victory???...

And certainly is life all about winning all the time??? What happened to working with the system a little and learning to work in a team??? In some places if you don't know team-work you don't get the job, no matter how much you know!!!...

And even those like we think they are less, know that thoughful, courteous people are in high demand!!! With those thing are mom and dad taught us when we were young!!!...

How life comes back to you!!! So let us be thoughtful and take a extra mile and count to ten twice or three times before doing or saying something rash that we will regret endlessly...

And indeed blessed are the merciful for they will obtain mercy, they will in the end be kind and good to themselves for taking as second look and bring forward the right response to difficult situtions...

I hope I remember to be merciful!!!...

Dreary Monday: To be or not to be???...

Sunday Morning Message: To be or not to be???!!!

I was looking a passage in the bible in the book of Acts when the Apostle Paul visited Corinth and had he worst dismay there!!! He had set to preach the gospel to the Jews and some Greek there and he unfortunatedly was given the sternest rebukes by the people there!!!

And he gave up on them and set to go the Gentiles and just promised in heart in a bad way that they would pay for their own blindness!!! And the Lord in a dream told him not to give up and keep preaching because God told him that God had many people there!!!

And I did not understand exactly why this passage brought on my attentioin??? Yet now I confess I've been entertaining a 'joyous' feeling that I would not have to do with those who do not want to hear God's message!!!

And I was happy with all the enegy and words and effort and disappointment I would spare myself to believe to let the unbelieving be unbelieving and let God take care of them!!! But I reflect on what God told Paul to keep on preaching, and "I have many people in this town!!!..."

And I did not want to pick up the plow in this matter of persistance!!! I did not want to be fastedious with those who just see things some other way!!! And the question for is 'to be or not to be' in this endevour of persitance!!! Will I end up with nothing in the end???...

And it has been a trial of faith to keep on explaining things to whom I don't know who would hear!!! And I hope God win this toss of the coin in these matter and the fate of this section of people!!!

I just pray God does have lots of people in this town and come to see things God way!!! As for me I will have to continue deliverating the 'to-be or not to-be???...' But God will make things clear to me soon enough!!!...

May you be blessed. Amen.

Something good that came along my way!!! Jesus!!!

Something Good that came along the way!!!...

I was on my way to write a blog that was more like a visit to the destist or walking on lead shoes or what could be worse???!!! And the subject is about how Satan send a digital signal if you will into our heart telling the brain that the bible is boring and that nobody want to hear or talk about it!!!...

And on my way I stumbled on 'bad' blog that I've written!!! I got an F in grammar by grammar teacher who happened to read it and said it was also so confused in structure!!! But I had the kindest time with that evaluation, that I forgot about my short-comings, that this two women who commented on my 'bad' blog, well they were interesting, by the Jesus in them!!!...

And I could not sleep last night thinking about this blog!!! But a brother said it made sense to him and also had a nice time with his comment!!! I'm not into names but they know who they are!!! And I couldn't get anything done this Saturday mourning but stay off the sweets and culinary indugences for one hour!!!...

But we turn to Acts 1:11-14,

["...11Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

12Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.

13And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.

14These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren..."]

And it is nice when we get in one accord and pray and fellowship and give each other what is best of what makes us interesting, just being ourselves without pretending anything or anything to hide but as possible transparent, like little children who are not on guard for each other but for each other!!!...

Perhaps we are getting ahead into Pentecost, but it is nice when the spirit of God, makes everyone of one accord and we all pray together!!! I'm still working on my grammar, those of you, grammar buffs!!! May you be blessed and let's all pray and smile and greet each other in one accord to do each other good!!!...

Blessings. Amen.

What is a child like this Easter...???

A new course and a new life!!!...

Now I think God's message is Powerful, because like it says it comes from God. And when God calls his people and all people to humble themselves and pray and it is because they are sick and need healing. One of the most difficult stages of an illness is the denial stage, "There's nothing wrong with me!!!..." Kind of stage. Where God is speaking to everyone but to me!!!...

Let's turn to 2Chronicles 7:14,

["...14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land..."]

And God promises with all the holiness that he will hear our prayer, if we humble ourselves, and take off the high horse and really get on our knees and pray and seek his face!!! And nothing could be more important for this Easter than a real Easter Message and real Easter committment to really believe God and not fables!!!...

And the apostle Paul has an Easter Message for us,

["...1.1 Corinthians 5:8 (Whole Chapter)
Therefore, let us observe the feast, [ Lk 13:21;] not with old yeast, or with the yeast of malice and evil, [ Mk 7:22; Rm 1:29;] but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.


2.2 Corinthians 1:12 (Whole Chapter)
[ A Clear Conscience ] For our boast is this: the testimony [ 1Tm 2:6;] of our conscience [ Heb 13:18;] that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you, with God-given sincerity and purity, not by fleshly [The word fleshly (characterized by flesh) indicates that the wisdom is natural rather than spiritual.] wisdom [ Pr 3:19; 1Co 1:21;] but by God's grace. [ Ac 23:1; 2Co 4:2; 5:12; 1Th 2:10;]


3.2 Corinthians 2:17 (Whole Chapter)
For we are not like the many [Other mss read the rest] who make a trade in God's message [ Mt 12:36; Mk 4:14; Lk 6:47; 8:21; Jn 1:1; 2:22; 18:32; Ac 17:11; 2Tm 2:15; Heb 4:12;] [for profit], but as those with sincerity, we speak in Christ, as from God and before God..."]

And there was an ocassion in which the dipiles were deliverating among themselves, whom would or was the greatest???!!! And Jesus rebuked them telling them that if anyone aspired to be the greatest, him or her, would be ready to be the servant of all!!!...

Now those are tough word to chew!!! Since we want to be served and attended to!!! But God says that if by some means we do not become like little children, humble and meek, we will by no means see the Kingdom of God!!!...

And I would think for myself why the Easter message is so important to me!!! Ephesians 4:32...

May you be blessed. Amen.

Now it takes a Miracle to believe God!!!...

 

Now it takes a miracle to believe God!!!...

I went to the mountains to deliverate something!!! It is good idea to preach the gospel to the Lost???!!! Sounds like the Television Series "Lost"!!! Is it worth the while to reason with those who have no shadow of turning???!!! And I conferred with God, that is was useless energy and words. And I have a family member whom I decide will never turn!!! And in that basis I group those who will never turn!!!...

But then I forget that the Virgin Birth of Jesus was a miracle!!! His travail in the cross for us was a miracle of conviction and endurance and sheer love for us!!! And I ask myself why do I not believe in miracles???!!! And sheer forget that my conversion was a sheer-sheer miracle by the tender mercy of God!!!...

And that's why we keep going, as fishemen hoping for nothing else but a miracle!!! Now that is hard work!!! We want everything predictable!!! And I wasn't so predictable when I came to Jesus and the knowledge of truth!!!...

Now it takes love to hope to change the fate of an undersirable stuck in his, her ways!!! And I was lost that way!!! I keep forgetting that little fact!!! And I forget to love others like my Lord loved me!!! And my desire is just to give up on the hopeless!!!

I rather do other things to occuppy my precious time, mone, and effort!!! Than to argue with the arrogant!!! Treatase the proud!!! And much less take time for the insolent!!! I rather kindle hell myself for them!!! And I might of had their luck and decide never to believe God!!! What fate of terror that would of been!!!...

So I ask and beg and supplicate, that now that God is near, please listen to his message!!! Please heed his message to repent!!! Ease my burden and listen to his words...

May you have the kindest day in the Lord...

Life after hope or a disaster!!!...

 

I couldn't add anything to this blog!!! I just kind of wonder of Elijah or Elisha when he went to the mountain and or a cave to listen to the voice, of the Lord!!! Let turn there: 1Kings 19:10-14,

["... 10And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

11And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:

12And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

13And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?

14And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away..."]

And if we go to the mountains where it silent and the air is still, and we let the glorious creation talk to us with a small voice of the beauty of it and its creator!!! Or do we need an earthquake, like we had to hear God voice in another way more loud!!! And do we need fire to hear his voice and then it will be too late because fire is merciless in hell!!!...

And we go hide from the Lord in a cave and perhaps we can hear the Lord in darkness and stone and then like we've said it will take a miracle to hear the still small voice of the Lord!!! And this is the time to hear the voice of the Lord, while he tenderly speaks to us!!! This is the time to heed and have a miracle!!!...

And if you must hear the still small voice of the Lord in those hid in a cave, do so but heed the Lord at all costs and by any means!!!...

May you have a wonderful day in the Lord...Amen.

What's love have to do with it???!!!

What's love have to do with it!!!...

I was reading a blog from a freind trying to sort out the difference between Christians and the 'Seculars'!!! And I thought it was a good blog!!! And 425 other viewers did perhaps the same!!! And I could of written that blog!!! I had good concern and reasoning!!! But I would of got out of it maybe in a good day 25 views!!!...

And I thought what does the plate have to do with food???!!! Is perhaps the food the same???!!! And if then if the place setting is all that important, then I wonder what the food is good for???!!! And perhaps the food for these is not all that important but the flower vase adorning the meal table!!!...

And I just thought that was kind of curious and I just wanted to meditate on that on passing!!! And we best we go to other matters!!! Turn to Acts 22:22-29,

["...22 They listened to him up to this word. Then they raised their voices, shouting, "Wipe this person off the earth€”it's a disgrace for him to live!"

23 As they were yelling and flinging aside their robes and throwing dust into the air, 24 the commander ordered him to be brought into the barracks, directing that he be examined with the scourge, so he could discover the reason they were shouting against him like this. 25 As they stretched him out for the lash, Paul said to the centurion standing by, "Is it legal for you to scourge a man who is a Roman citizen and is uncondemned?"

26 When the centurion heard this, he went and reported to the commander, saying, "What are you going to do? For this man is a Roman citizen."

27 The commander came and said to him, "Tell me€”are you a Roman citizen?"

"Yes," he said.

28 The commander replied, "I bought this citizenship for a large amount of money."

"But I myself was born a citizen," Paul said.

29 Therefore, those who were about to examine him withdrew from him at once. The commander too was alarmed when he realized Paul was a Roman citizen and he had bound him..."]

Now Paul had a complaint!!! Was his complaint justified???? Now when is a complaint justified???!!! Do we as Citizens of the Kingdom have a Complaint???!!! Should we complain because are citizens of the kindom???!!! Should we demand our rights???!!!...

And if we somehow have something to complain to God about, should he avenge himself for that complaint???!!! Did he ever promised us a "Rose Garden..." pardon me darling...!!! Is time for God to make distictions???!!! And what is our outlook on that???!!! What did expect to be served in our table while we serve in this world and age of darkness???!!!...

May you have a wonderful day in the Lord!!! Amen.

One Message we did not want to hear or understand!!!...

One thing we did not want to understand!!!...

In the sour moments of my life, I kind to wonder about something!!! About the sacrifice that sometimes come along the way!!! John 21:18-21,

["... 15 When they had eaten breakfast, Jesus asked Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?"
"Yes, Lord," he said to Him, "You know that I love You."

"Feed My lambs," He told him.

16 A second time He asked him, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me?"

"Yes, Lord," he said to Him, "You know that I love You."

"Shepherd My sheep," He told him.

17 He asked him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me?"
Peter was grieved that He asked him the third time, "Do you love Me?" He said, "Lord, You know everything! You know that I love You."

"Feed My sheep," Jesus said. 18 " I assure you: When you were young, you would tie your belt and walk wherever you wanted. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will tie you and carry you where you don't want to go." ..."]

And it come to pass that in the worship ceremony it is all wonderful eating of fish and taking of the drink and the fellowship, but in the fellowshop, the Lord often takes us to place and siuation where we don not want to go and be insulted, disdained, malaigned and treated low!!!

And we wonder about the Lord why the he permits those who love him pass throught this fire???!!!! And the answer is inevitable that those who hate him, us, the truth and his message feel uncomfortable at what we say and assert!!! The good news is not good news to those who are perishing!!! It is foolishness that we rather leave this way, foolishness!!! Than to have this Jesus rule over our life, which will eventually take place and that we be the end of those who do not believe!!! And gone also are their prides and plans for what ever they thought they had in mind...

May you be blessed. Amen.
