God's Rolex...!!!

 

"Daily Life n the Mongol Empire"

"It includes a historical overview and description of the steppe life, appearance, dwellings, the army, health, medicine, drinking, food, religion, law, women and folktales from Mongolia..."

This an excerpt from page 185 on the "American Books Annual", there's a listing with the entry above for a certain book. The book "Daily Life in the Mongol Empire" by Lane George, is listed and given a description of such. Now why should such a book be such and interest to us???...

And if we have been keeping tabs on Jesus, we would know that he wants to go the wells of the ends of the earth and meet the Mongolian woman there, carrying just her own business, and open a conversation, we someone totally foreign to us, but really not to him, creator of heaven and earth!!!...

Now the Devil has been very, very successful making us focus on our little life here in the U.S.A and the little and familiar town where you live, down in the suburbs in your comfty life and family!!!...

But the Lord wants to widen the circle of freinds!!! The Devil did a good number on me, to focus on my feelings and my needs and my rewards and my life and my work and my house and my family and my plans, hope and dreams!!! And I totally went off hub and forgot what time it is in the world and on God's Rolex!!!...

The time draws near and Jesus return is close to his arrival than at any other time in history!!! Forget the hurt feelings and turned sour hopes of this life!!! God is ready to make his final appearance!!! And the rampant evil in the world and the signs and troubles should awaken us and warn us to pray more fevertly to be at peace with God and his work!!!...

Now the Devil had me duped for the past week we cares and worries and hurt feeling and thought that preaching the gospel was something...well I could take more lightly and take it easy and not take things so seriously...but that is a fatal mistake!!! Do not fall asleep on the wheel and crash you spiritual life!!!...

Please pray more fervently for each other and turn to Proverbs 3 and meditate on the wisdom there to dispense mercy and truth and bind them around your neck like a neclace to not forget and loose sight of what is good for us!!!...

We can't afford to be offended at this time and loose the lid when we need to think more clearly!!!... The offenses and disappointement will come and some will blame God for the disappointment and fall into the Devil's trap and be offended at God!!!...

Do not loose sight of God,

Trust in the Lord with you whole heart,
Lean not on your own capacity to understand,
In all things give God credit for everything,
And God will give you a clear picture of the truth...


May you be blessed. Amen.

One Fixture I did not want to take on!!!

 

One fixture I did not want to take on!!!

Lately, I'm plagued with all sorts of mental and spirtual, even physical anguish!!! I've taken to think about myself and cook and buy my own food and maybe take on my own life!!! And then worry about me!!! And my life!!! I live in a private house and don't own anything in the house but a hutch filled with numerous bibles of all sorts!!! And lately my daugther wanted me to buy her a computer laptop for school!!!...

And I thought that was wonderful and said to her "Let's pray about it!!!" Avoiding somewhat the financial issue!!! I really don't mind dishing my daughter some money to help her find a laptop!!! And then the Lord confronted me because I prayed that I would always blog his thoughts and messages!!! And the truth of the matter is that I had set my heart in cement to budget myself and cater to my own physical need, groceries and stuff, bread and drink!!!...

I wanted to limit what I covet and what others in my family give me to help me I suppose!!! And then then suddenly I remembered that the stationwagon was still out in the driveway and put everything on hold to drive her into the garage!!! The Lord asked, "You care about your possesion from being lost or stone???" I gave no answer and I did not want to think about it!!!...

Then I put everything on hold and wanted to take a shower and be clean!!! And I did and the Lord said, " You like to be clean???..." I had no answer again!!! Then I put on my clothes and forgot to put on my belt and decided to skip the belt!!! And then I realized that I need a belt to keep my clothes on!!! And the Lord said, " You like to be clothed properly with out being exposed??? I couldn't say anything again...

Then I told the Lord, if I take what others give me here, you know I will have to pay back every cents worth of what they give me and their devils will tear me to peices for not fending for my own needs!!! Then I realized that exactly what will happen to many, torn to pieces by devils for their debts and sins, unable like I was, unable to fend for my own!!! And the Lord said, "If you were not concerned about only yourself and independence and thought about the spiritual independence of others, things would make more sense!!!...

If people don't give you things, how will I interceed for them if they don't show you any hospitality!!! You defraud them of their blessings if you don't allow me to take care of you through them!!!, Said God!!!

But they will tear me to peices for what debt I incurr in this life!!! And God said, "You don't know what hell is like and you don't want to send anyone there simply because you are so proud to recieve hospitality!!! See that that no one goes to hell because of you!!! Finished Jesus!!! God said that he that loveth his life will loose it and if anyone looses his life in this world for him, he will find life eternal and more in this time still!!!...

May you be blessed. Amen.

First the wrestle...then the message!!!

 

First the wrestle...then the message!!!

It occurs to me that when I want to write a blog, it takes hours to deliverate, then 15 minutes to execute!!! It seem there a big discussion in my head wheter the time is right and whether the spirit is with me with a message!!! And I wonder if the 3% will care for my message!!! I was sitting comfortably in the sofa and I said to God, "I want to preach your message, but it seem to be going nowhere and we are just repeating myself over and over!!!..."

And then I turn on the TV and there an urgent report that there now has been 6.9 Rippler Scale earth quake in China!!! And I appologize to God for calling his message boring and run in the mill and I know it is run of the mill!!! But I fear the apathy God will not tolerate and he will continue to bring the flood, hail, earthquakes, famines, pandemic and rampant violence in some places to help us find meaning in his message!!!...

Now prevaling syndrome now is this rampant Narcissistism that has the world focuse on the self!!! And this attitude of the Devil is very effective in making the gospel message uninteresting, and we pant to be entertained!!! Our spiritual poverty is so great that we want to be filled with something, food, alchohol, drugs for this and that, premoscutity to satisfy the hungering flesh that has no rest and wants relief Now!!!...

And the sorry message is that the satifaction of sin comes for a season and then we have to pay the piper with the consequences of depravity, violence, contention, poverty of the spirit and mind, and just pant to be satified with something, and the situation get deperate!!! We can't sleep to well and we are on edge at home and at work. Our children are autistic and we don't matter to them for anything but to eat, then they fall away into this private world of theirs into the empty void of I don't no what, the Abyss!!!...

And we are that way too!!! What about my life??? And myself??? And my feelings??? And my self esteem??? And my part of the bargain??? And my disaster??? And it should be Oh! My... what is happening to us???!!! And we get offended easily and we just don't want to participate in the harmony with others process!!! And we just want to crawl under a rock and rest there and...rest from all the havoc going outside and in our minds!!!...

Job 5:1-13,

["... 1Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?

2For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one.

3I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.

4His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them.

5Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.

6Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;

7Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

8I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:

9Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:

10Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:

11To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.

12He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.

13He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.

14They meet with darkness in the day time, and grope in the noonday as in the night..."]

And listen to what Job says, "They meet with darkness in the day time, and grope in the noonday as in the night..." We have perpertual gloom of the spirit 24 hours a day and the serious situation is that it has been a while since we had a peaceful moment!!! And we need to stop the bus of the world and get off in the nearest stop!!! We need to get back to

God and get back to give and hope!!! And for this we need that moment with God in the morning and before we retire for the night and earnesly forgive those who have offended us!!!...

May you be blessed. Amen.

The Raceway!!!

 

The raceway...

I found myself pacing updown the room of my house trying to put things together in my mind. I told God, "I'm so trapped and lonely, and bored in this life you have given me...". And I counted all the rooms in my house and went to all of them!!! And things were becoming deperate!!! And it is not like I don't have chores to do!!! But I felt so unsatified and bored with my existence!!!...

And I imagined if I took my car and where would I go to have peace??? And when I got there would my mind be here stuck to this place like glue!!! I went to my room, made my bed and just laid down and put my bible at my side and decide to search the bible for something to enlighten me and show me what was happening to me!!! Psalm 82,

["...1God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

2How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

3Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

5They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

6I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

7But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

8Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations..."]

And it suddenly became clear, that the limitation was not where my feet couldn't go, but where my heart did not care!!! And I thought how limited my little imagination was and how the raceway in my mind was encrusted with dross and just collapsing with my little life thing just about myself!!! And I thought about going and doing and visiting and I thought about all the place I could go and just be as lonely there and the fix just a temporary one!!!...

And I though about someone who was having trouble and depression and all sorts of difficulties, and how that family only call you when they need you!!! A very self-seeking scenario of self absorvetion if you will!!! I saw myself going in that same direction!!! I looked at everything physically but not see my mind and how little it was and my prayers for other so short or not all!!!...

And I did not think about the plight of others and how other need to greeted and told the good-news or even as simple "...hello, how are you???" And God says that even if we are Princesses of God, God will not forestall the consequences of a selfish, self loving life, focused only on me and my needs!!! We will fall, God says like any prince, because we don't care about anybody but ourselves...

May you be blessed. Amen.

Being plagued with all manner of problems!!!

I was observing with all manner of problems!!! It seem that the cares and worries of everyone are increasing and we don't have hardly a peaceful moment!!! And we are preoccupied with our money, our strength and our wisdom!!!...

And we should not entrust our peace on these things!!! God says where our glory should be!!! Turning bible, Jeremiah,

["...
  1. Jeremiah 9:23 (Whole Chapter)
    Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:

     
  2. Jeremiah 9:24 (Whole Chapter)
    But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

    ..."]

And it is very hard to be content when we are ignorant, poor, or weak, and we should pray for these thing, but we must understand that the Lord is the source of all these things and to him we should direct our prayer and thank him for such as these items!!!...

And this is where the Devil will focus our preoccupation, worry and concern!!! And we begin to take ourselves to seriously on these and take our eyes off the peace the Lord wants to bring us!!!

And the parable of the sower, the seed that fell among the thorns, the cares and indulgence in this life makes us forget that Jesus is soon to return any moment!!! And we may have heard this thousand time, but we just brush it off with another thought from this world and life!!!...

We must awaken and know that summer is near and the fall harvest soon after...

Blessings. Amen.

News Flash!!! Cranking up the old pride will get you nothing!!!

 
 
 

I was deliverating something this early morning: Should of have done this or done that??? And what if I had...done something else??? And it took me 3 hours to determine that I was confused!!! And I thought that was funny!!! Because with all that thought I had nothing but waste precious sleep and peace of mind!!! And we would think that the bible is not revalent and know stuff, let's turn to Proverbs 3,

["...11My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:

   12For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

   13Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

   14For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold..."]

And sometime the Lord chastise us with our wasted wonderful moments with our loved one, just because we just have the sense to keep our feeling out of the way when we had a tense moment with someone!!! What a waste of time, energy and maybe money!!!

["...7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

   8It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones..."]

And for you health buffs, taking care of your temper is good for you and your health like vitamins and calcium, and why wouldn't you want to be healthy???!!! The Lord loves you and wants to do you good if only listen to him!!!

Blessings.

The Blog with '...an attitude!!!'

The Blog that would no be!!!

Taking on a Commentary on Shakespearean Critism, topic: "The gendered subjects of shakespearean soliloquy",

["...Shakespearean verse, as John Barton remarks, gives the actor "stage directions in shorthand". He offers examples throughout 'Playing Shakespeare': mono syllables demand more rapid delivery; shared lines tell the actor to pick up the cue. Such stage directions create individuated patters of speech and structure representation of the social categories of class and gender...

They are perhaps most subtly directorial in soliloquies. A soliloquy, by convention, allows an actor to establish a priviledged relation to the audience, either to tell the character's side of the story by creating the illusion of interiority or to restructure the theatrical event by breaking through the dramatic fiction...

But Shakespeare's female charaters are rarely alone on stage and more rarely do they address the audience directly. When they do, the convention of the soliloquy are regularly adapted to the female character, revealing the extent to which the Shakespearean soliloquy is ordinarily gendered as male."]

Would we think that Romeo was more important than Juliet??? And why would we want to make a distiction??? If God tells us to love everyone, than we would we want to put people in groups??? The desired and the undesired??? Now we do this all the time!!! Now we don't want to have a child predator as you childrens baseball coach!!!...

But taking as side trip, I was remembering Miss Diaz who played the movie "Solome" to potray the kind of woman, a man would admire, and the world love Solome, a computer program to get esteem!!! I really enjoyed that movie with...I forgot his name...he is famous...I can't remember now!!!...

But should we make distictions??? Does God make distiction and or play favorites??? Now should we love the wickes who hurt people??? And who hasn't hurt someone as sometime, and or even yesterday of this past morning??? But is life a play where we put people in roles and what we should expect out of them???...

Is life a theater, a mystical story that will have a perpertual happy ending??? Now God is not unfair!!! He says, "All that thirty come and take of the tree of life freely!!! What is wrong with God open bar for to drink and have a feast with him??? Come all you who are weary and heavy burdened I will give your rest!!!...

No. God will not be held accountable for those who refuse his ticket name Christ to Glory!!! But no!!! God does not make distictions and neither does he play favorites!!! He says that if I scoff, nobody but myself will suffer the consequences and we don't want to go to that place...

May you be blessed. Amen.

The Word of God is Sealed!!!

Now we don't want to go to a place where there's no turning back!!! And perhaps you are contemplating to divorce your spouse perhaps for 'good' reasons and perhaps reasonable!!! And once you climb and jump the fence and do what God told you not to do, you are on your own!!!...

And God said that if we divorce our spouse because we are bored and tired of that person and perhaps it is the humane thing to do for yourself, because God said that you should not destroy and pretend I don't know what and incurr on yourself irrepairable damage!!!...

But know this for certain, that those that have afflicted you have crossed the Rubicon River and declared war on God and that is not good to do to the graciousness of God!!! And God can be servere once he closes the door and lets judgement come!!!...

["...
  1. Deuteronomy 32:34 (Whole Chapter)
    Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?

     
  2. 1 Kings 21:8 (Whole Chapter)
    So she wrote letters in Ahab's name, and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters unto the elders and to the nobles that were in his city, dwelling with Naboth.

     
  3. Nehemiah 10:1 (Whole Chapter)
    Now those that sealed were, Nehemiah, the Tirshatha, the son of Hachaliah, and Zidkijah,

     
  4. Esther 3:12 (Whole Chapter)
    Then were the king's scribes called on the thirteenth day of the first month, and there was written according to all that Haman had commanded unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors that were over every province, and to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language; in the name of king Ahasuerus was it written, and sealed with the king's ring.

     
  5. Esther 8:8 (Whole Chapter)
    Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's ring: for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse..."]
     
  6. And once God seals for you no more mercy you have made a grand mistake!!! You should of headed Jesus to turn from your ways!!! God says that the wages of sin is death and there's no negotiating, save with the blood of Jesus!!!...

Now you mustn't want to put God to the test!!! Now to how many children did God have mercy in the Holocaust who never hurt a fly but were instructed to turn away from Jesus by the tradition of their parents and grandparents who were instructed by their anscestors???!!!...

Now God make Jesus simple so that is no saying I could do what Jesus wanted me to do!!! Do not trust instict or tradition, no Jesus there's no way out of damnation!!! Please make it simple on God, respect his Son and everything will be wonderful!!! Please contemplate Jesus one more time!!!...

Blessings. Amen.

When I stopped believing: The Yellow Flower!!!

 

When I stopped believing: The Yellow Flower

I was reading about a legend about a native american damsel who was take into slavery by a tribe, after her people lost an important war. Her name was Chi'ane, she was fifteen and barely in the flower of her life. The capturing tribe has many troubles after that and famine and no luck in hunts and they blame her for the bad luck. And they forced her to pray in an open field for the 'Spirit' to turn and heal their land. And she compelled to pray for her captors and their bad luck, she cried and the tear that fell on the ground turned into rain...

And when she died, a Yellow Flower grew in her grave and thus forever the Sun Flower came to be believed that she had come back to life!!! And when I stopped believing I also hoped for rebirth of my faith!!! What would grow when I died to sin and became all anew into the new life??? 2Chronicles 7:14-20,

["...14If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

15Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.

16For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.

17And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;

18Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.

19But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;

20Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations..."]

Now this a sober admonition for anyone!!! And if we are still riding the high horse of apocalypse of presumtion that everything will be all right, it will not!!! Now God has put in motion the Nebuchanezzar anti-Christ to handle this high mindedness and this pride that is going around!!! Zephaniah 1:9-12,

["... 9In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit.

10And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.

11Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.

12And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil..."]

And we think the Lord will just overlook my little pride here, arrogance there and a triffle insolent sometime when I am really provoked!!!

Micah 3:5-8,

["...5Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

6Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.

7Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.

8But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin..."]

And certain we continue, God could not be possibly speaking to me??? After all when have I stumbled anyone??? And I have lots of friends and everything is alright!!! Now why should I have concern for this passage???

Habakkuk 2:1-4,

["... 1I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

2And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

3For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

4Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith..."]

And will come to pass that if we trust in Jesus in any other way than by a sheer faith of his work on the cross, then we have not believed God at all and we are proud and God will point out that we are making a big mistake in the latter days!!!

May you be blessed. Amen.

How much ruin can a bitter heart bring???!!!

 
 
 

Now before I got up from bed this morning, I noticed something wrong, and I really did not want to get up and face the day!!! I then braced myself to pray and just take a cup of hot coffee or maybe tea for you and just meditate on something: How life had made us bitter!!! We just don't want to tango anymore with this life!!! And we just plainly just don't want to lift and bring up the issue, we don't want to talk about it, and we only want to say and talk the bare necesity to bring throught the day!!!...

Let to turn to bible and see what God shows us from where we have fallen!!! 1Corinthians 13:1-13,

["...1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

   2And 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.

   3And 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.

   4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

   5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

   6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

   7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

   8Charity 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.

   9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

   10But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

   11When 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.

   12For 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.

   13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity..."]

And we might think, this is not affecting me!!! But the truth of the matter is that a hard, bitter heart can ruin a deal, the day and even your life!!! We must understand that the offenses come from all directions: Traffic, Job, Family, Freind, Coworker and we just plain begin to believe that someone or life is out to get us and do us wrong!!! But the fact of the matter for your coffee is that is we realize how offenses make us bitter and ruin our heart, then we know we can look out when they come and take them calmly, patiently...

Just list about now how you feel and how someone or something has already made you, me upset!!! See that things don't have to be this way and we can escape this frenzy of hate and bad feelings!!! I you come to see that love is not far away and we can exercise our right to not be offended and defeat the enemy who wants to ruin our day!!!...

Blessings.
