Some tea before retiring for the evening or to start the morning!...

Some tea before retiring for the evening...!

In the world according to Frank, he hasn't become well from the outburs of 'righteous' wrath at church and now I have to keep away for I don't know how long to mend and heal our fellowship there!...

I can't emphasize the damage is done by trying to be righteous, clever, holy, and in the end proud to perhaps think one knows something! The best we can to do is be gentle, thoughful, patient, and understanding! And this goes against all the grain we are made of so evil and like we said, proud!...

At least that is my conjecture this evening! Drinking my Diet Coke here and praying we can send satan a message that we keep him thinking for the night so we can have peace and rest!...

Now God always has peace because God has the Word always with him and God never seperates himself from the scriptures of the truth! And you may know that the bible you read is the same God read every day and night and he never stops learning something new, and yet he knows everything!...

A freind of mine said to me that God know all the hearts of men! And rightly said that was! God know every outcome before the beginning starts and nothing and no problem takes him by surprise!...

And yet another matter! God is always joyful because the spirit is there to give him a continual feast of joy throughour eternity! Proverbs 3 shares this wisdom with us saying to never forsake the Truth and never forsake Love, and we need Jesus for Truth and the spirit to have love!...

And yet God is three in one Jesus has the spirit and the spirit is in Jesus...the father is the source of every truth and kindness!...

The trick of the devil is to make desolate so we loose the spirit and the tell us lies so we loose the truth! So we need both to be complete! Truth and joy! The truth is the bread which is broken for us! And the joy is the shrill of the deliverance from tyranny and captivity which the shed blood brings! Together!...

And yet together we can conquer darkness, because like myself, I really don't undertand anything without your prayers! I really know when you are praying for me and each other! God is moved to reveal all sorts of secrets and get us in the mood to share and partake!...

Thanks so much for this kindness! Blessings...Amen.

The Steep Hill!...

The steep hill...!

I have to pray for hours each morning to get me started back in the ball game! And the temptation is to make the simple trivial and the not new unimportant! I was reading in my bible the account of when Mary Magdalene and the women visit the tomb only to find it empty!...

And it would seem trivial to read over again and again the Easter Message! And wella this year is almost over the the coming year bring the new Easter Season! And about now the past Easter Season, well is it so distant now in the Past!...

The creator of the movie of "The Passion" Mel is having a difficult trial with his personality and I hear about him in the gossip news and all the bad reports! And what a convenient time for the devil to the disravel the producer of "The Passion" around Thanksgiving Day Season! And disravel the message of "The Passion"!...

And I see this person producer say and do all sorts of things, giving his work a bad wrap! And this is not about him, but how the devil knows that his time is short and want to destroy the message and everyone who bring it and their personal testimony!...

And should not a time to marvel and gossip at what we hear and see, but to pray that we ourselves are accounted worthy to escape all those terrible things that will come to pass and that we can stand and be really found blameless through the blood of Jesus!...

Here in my house, I'm a guest and my caretakes work and work on the house to make my stay here more expensive and payment of guilt more severe! And the more sad and depressed I get, the less I'm able to meditate and write the column! Witty the devil isn't him?!...

And it is not that I climb the steep hill of my deppression and write a blog that everyone stops working and relaxes and I have peace again! I sometimes really do want to quit! But then that is exactly what the devil wants me to do! And I hope Mel writes another of his great movies and realizes that what is happening to him and us is just a perfect contruction of the devil!...

Blessings. Amen.

The floffy cloud and the floppy disk and a generation lost!...

 

The floffy cloud and the floppy disk and a generation at risk...1

"What are you doing John?", "Not much! killing time! Looking the floffy cloud there yonder...!",

"Times are not like they used to Bill!

Where we had time to decide what to do with the day and enjoy the long afternoon following a cool brisk morning...!"

"And everything is decided for you now...!",

"Eschedules, deadlines, demands, lists, duties, and disaster...we decided for ourselves what we decided our fancy was to do or believe..!"

"Take heart John, maybe someday the world, there will be time to really make good choices and really ponder of what is really good for us...!"

"And now, everything is in the floppy disk and into the hard-drive!...",

"A machine decided what we shall do and when and how!...",

And now that we want to decide for ourselves what kind of life to live!?...",

We don't have time to make that choice!..."

"And since we did not want to become Robots, Bill, we ourselves have to turned into machines, who can rarely decide in any day when our break will come, and instead we are breaking!..."

"And since our ancestors way back for those who believe in creation, decide that they were going to have it their way, I really wonder it they really understood what mess would ensue for us now, a generation at risk, a generation of machines, slave to a destiny we do not want, or even contemplated for an instant!..."

"See yaw later Bill!...",

"Take a care John!..."

"...Good thing we still can go fishing together and have each other, while we contemplate how to get out of this mess!..."

"Bye..."

"So long..."

The Peace Offering...

The Peace Offering...

I was looking at the ad for Coffee Donation Day...and for sending your few saved dollars! And confess that I hadn't given much thought to that! And I went on with my business to write a blog and the ad kept following me around!...

And early this morning I was perplexed because I needed to send my daughter some money and was also perplexed because a freind of mine in a foreing poor country sent me a letter asking me for help, his wife is expecting again, and he doesn't have a cent!...

And I was perplexed of how to send him the help in that uncertain country and took no thought of the amount, but I just couldn't figure a way to get it to him!...

And why do I worry about the uncertain things and go by sea and land to give what we can to those we love, no matter where they are or wheter we have anything to give in the first place, we find a way!...

And I thought about the little thing, like a small donation, and perhaps a missed cup of coffee! And since did that become so difficult?! If worry about big things and why a so small gesture such a big thing, at least for me anyways?!...

And if someone in front of us at StarkBucks, in line ordered a coffee and suddenly did not find a way of how to pay it, would it have been such a trouble to pay for his or her coffee and rejoice in it?!...

And if all have is to draw attention to this ad, well I like doing that this morning! I still have to decide how to make the big purchases and expenditures, but for now I just want to focus on a couple of dollars, a few words, and perhaps dedicate this gesture to God Jesus as a thank you, peace offering!!!...

Blessings. Amen.

The eye of the beholder!...

The eye of the beholder...!

I'm original on this title, I was watcing a movie by that title, dollar movie, but it was off-beat and pretty good! I won't tell you the plot! But what is precious to someone may not be to someone else! And somebody's trash may be a talent of gold to someone we don't know!...

What will it take to see a deal with another pair of eyes? Perhaps in our point of view and looking direction we did not get the whole picture and one account doesn't tell the same story!...

An emphathetic gift is hard to come by! To be patient and get all the fact! And still we may be ajar as to why really something happen and some did the thing he or she did!...

And we have faith on one thing that God know all the hearts of men and really has the whole picture of why any doeses anything and what is real objective in every persons motives!...

And that is why we have to magnify God so we never make a mistake to try to outwit him and or his wisdom! That is our first mistake! To say, "God will understand...why I had to do this!..." And yet we know we things with alterior motives to hurt or make sport or gain of someone!...

And certainly God says that what we sow we will reap! And make no mistake a life of stinginess brings desolation and poverty! And this is not the prosperity gospel where we turn the bible into a bank!...

But truth is that he promises of God are sure! And if God says that it is more blessed to give than to recieve, it will come to pass that we are blessed when give and share!...

Blessings. Amen.

Your are a failure my good man!...

 

Your blog is a flop! You worthless prophet!...

Not the pep talk you want to hear! I went out side to water a honeysuckle plant in front of my window that keep me company while I write and I see that the blistering heat has taken hold of the poor plant!...

And about 4 PM each day it is the kind of talk I hear from satan and he really give me a workout! Perhaps you had your best day of blogs today and somehow it was not a gold medal day!...

I took on to feed the pigeon and maybe they can bring a little luck and loose satan this afternoon! Now satan delight is night when the stores are closed and everyone is asleep! And he says, there's nothing coming back you fool and you can't take what you write seriously!...

It is just your opinion! You way of seeing things and everyone looks at the matter differently and it is all relative! Everyone has his own conviction of what is right and true! And we should respect like you yourself said so! Don't you remember?!...

It is perhaps a dream and it will turn into a nightmare when things begin to show up in the world and we may begin to see that God was not all imagining things in what he promised that is should come to pass even tommorrow!...

And what is real scary is the Temptation to not takes things seriously! Even some vain person like myself has a messenger from Satan to remind me that evil does not rest! Even when we don't have a good day in the gospel!...

["...1.2 Thessalonians 2:11 (Whole Chapter)
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:.."]

Now God wants his troop alert! And we should be wary of the delusion to believe what is plausible to the person of the world, even though he or she may call themselves by God name!...

Be alert and stay awake and watch always!...

Blessings. Amen.

God's Temple and the Devil's Triangle!...

Taking the gospel on the road: The crossroads and the tringle...!

I got up this morning and thought it was going to be a regular sit at the table day and write! But no, my father stayed with us last night and today he was in a mood to kind of take over what is his! And that is wonderful, I sat down to do my business and well no phone service or no internet service!...

And I knew I had to go to the Community College Library and log in there! And that I did! And it was good to get out of the house early today and suddenly realized that the gospel and Jesus words have no certain home in this world or this life!...

I checked out a reference bible and turned to 2Chronicles 6:1 and 5,

quote:

@1-Then said Solomon, The Lord hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness...

@5-Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt, I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to built an house in, that my name might be there;neither chose any man to be a ruler over my people Israel.

endquote...

And as we take the gospel to perhaps around the corner, we are God's house, whether the world likes us or not or wheter or not they like to belive our message! And we can be stinked out of our physical houses, but where ever we go, our life and body is God Temple!...

And God chose no man to rule over us and even if you go to a good church and the Pastor and deacon are respectable, and whomever you think you owe account of your self, and really God is our only true Sheperd to whom we really have to explain everything!...

And some have traditions to revear the Rabbi or the Preist or the Pastor or someone who you think represent someone you need to have thier consent or approval and yet only Jesus is the one who confess our darkest sins!...

And we can have a stale-mate at home, at church and we should respect those who own the physical house, but how much more do we need to understand to respect him who owns the spiritual house!...

And we should not form love-triangles with love for God in one corner, love for the world in the other corner and we ourselves in between the two! And the world has its entities who own the world, government, parents, bosses, companies, and the world itself owns all the goods in the world!...

But we are God's Temple and if God take his Temple to the local Community College Library, there is where God Church is, and there is where Jesus want to tell those there that he is indeed the light of the world for everyone there!...

Blessings. Amen.

Jude and James: The end is better than the beginning!...

Jude and James: The end is happier than the beginning!...

Let's turn to the happy ending, Jude 24,

["...24Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,..."]

Now Jude came to his senses and himself, redeeming himself that God with his grace can cover the life of anyone who come to him and repent of their ungodliness!...

And Jude feared some that presumed grace only to do ungodly deeds! And can anyone really experience this? I've heard of some Pastors and Preist who do and did some ungodly deeds! And one can question their conversion by this thing?...

And now James says that faith without works is dead! And the question is what happened to grace and what David was quoted to say that blessed are them whose sins are forgiven!...

And Paul certainly did not have the point view of a Christian falling off the horse of grace! And did he? And certainly in some places he seems to go back to legalism!...

And the question I raise is "What happened to the spirit of God dwelling in the person of a Christian? Certainly I heard of better prophet who say, "I'm not perfect, just forgiven...!"...

And certainly where in the bible does it say that God came to save the 'good' people, who appear good to perhaps feel good and then believe that they are good!...

Cannot the spirit of God tell his Temple when he should not run so many red lights? Or when the third helping of Turkey and Stuffing is just not proper to do? Or when we are being rude even when we thought we were just trying to help someone?...

And the spirit of God is more gentle to point out the most subtle evil intentions, even when are fooling ourselves we are doing something that appears to be good of some sort!...

But we may not understand that grace is more than a Seminary Term and more of an event where God witnessed every careless and thoughless word we utter and tells us we may be mistaken in our actions!...

And the temtation is to drown the Truth in theology and treat is a topic for theologian and not real help in makng right decisions even when have to choose between evil and worst evil and good and more excellent behavior!...

I just marvel at this and how we got it all wrong and really don't understand grace and that love is a gift and not something we go through the motions of doing, like if more doing counted for anything more than more giving and come to understand what charity and real consideration and not performance test of some sort...!

Blessings. Amen.

At last we can be frankly clear!...

At last we can be frankly clear!...

It took some doing to get to this point in our developement and go into higher rank courses in 'theology'! One important developement in logic math is the discovery of the 'empty set' which made things all clear there! Now quantum physics has revealed that empty space is by no means empty and light can be mass and wave!...

Now is this the way to start a blog?! I was watching two movie clips, we one was soap opera program and the other was movie of vintage of someone who looked like late Sammy Davis Jr.! In the movie clip, there this cowboy wrangler who is hunting and he very good at shooting down quail and putting a meal on the table!...

And then man who had just escaped slavery happened to be literate and was very good with words and writting and took upon himself to exalt himself and point out that his sharp shooter freind could not write his name, he did not how to read or write only shoot down quail and provide!...

And the illiterate cowboy tells this slavery scapy, after you finished to diceration on how well you read and write perhaps you can shoot down the coming dinner, since you are so intelligent! And the slavery escapy just put down the roasted quail from his mouth and perhaps that maybe it would of shown a greater command of language to say nothing!...

Now back to our soap opera clip, we have a husband coming down on his wife because she want to go to college and further her education! And husband is outlining the facts that a housewive should be in the home and not out there in the street and perhaps flirting with other men!...

And we, I learned two thing we basically need to be happy. One is provision, plenty of roasted quail and two the dignity to have freedom! And we are happy that we now learned the love is gift and not something we have to do if we don't want to: Freedom and the joy to understand the truth of that!...

Now if we had an inkling that in a marriage, the provision the man provides should be a gift out of his goodwill and love for his wife and family and should never be taken for granted like we learned somewhere! And keep in mind that love is more of a gift we give than a command!...

I know we all have learned that we are commanded to love and obey, but we really should pray that we understand that we are not commanded to give what we don't want to! And if we remember that we have reserved the right to refuse service to anyone, then we know we have freedom!...

God says that were there God's spirit there is freedom! And as humans are required to do only what is humanly possible! And back to the husband and wife, the wife should give her submission to her husband as a conditional gift based on her right to human dignity and freedom to have dignity!...

And like we learned today that we learned to demand affection and demand love and have a 'to-do-list' of what we expect from our spouse! Now God renews his loves for us everyday because he wills and not because he has any moral obligation!...

God is always free to do what he pleases! But since God never feels threatened by anyone he can love continually with out fear! Love which is freedom cast out fear!...

And we do need bread which is Truth and drink which is Dignity and Freedom from from our sins and ostigation and tyranny! And the wisdom of it all that we can be ourselves and help our spouses in his, her developement and not forget our own dignity and freedom to feel free to love and not because we are obligated or by compulsion and for being demanded, but because we make a serene choice to want give of ourselves!...

Blessings. Amen.

Just happen to tune here by accident!...

["...1Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

   2Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.

   3If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.

   4He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap..."]

I couldn't find the number in this place! Althought I've written 435 blogs and we I'm not impressed with the result here! And I really wonder what spirit is here? I post here once in while because i can't figure what to say here to make a meaniful statement here for those here!...

Perhaps it is just my imagination and expecting more of what I don't give! Perhaps it is lesson for me not be a celebrity! Well on with business!...

Giving a portion to seven if not eight is call to be fruitful in the knowledge of God! And if the rains fall upon the earth and could more devation than good and the trees fall the south or to the north and lately I've heard of great devations from rain and hurricanes!...

And if we wait until we have clear weather and when everyone is happy with us then we won't get anything done!...

We just hope we get off the subject of how popular we appear and get on with business of presenting what people need to hear and not what they want to!...

Blessings. Amen.
