His Love saves

rabid love consumes
the shadow of a corpse moans
His Son breathes life in

If You Were God

Asking humans this question, if you were a god and your people were waiting for you, how would you make your appearance? The majority of answers would be, definitely not quietly. Some would no doubt have a reality crew set up and ready to capture the theatrics of fireworks and flaming letters fanning across the sky to announce that you have  arrived. There you’d be standing dressed and draped in brilliant regalia within a glistening chariot made from billions of dazzling gems and being pulled by a winged beast with a head of a lion and body of a dragon accompanied by a universe class band. Something like that.

How very opposite of our God. How very beautiful and intimately personal did Jesus come into the world for us! First of all the Creator of the Universe, of everything past, present and future came to the world burning with an incomprehensible love and compassion for us all. He came so that we may know Him and know that He desires a personal relationship with each of us. He came to set us free and to give all an even/steven chance of receiving His gift of eternal life ruling along with Him forever in His kingdom.

He arrived by way every human could relate to and understand, human birth and chose to do so in the most humble way. He became accessible to all who yearn to know and love Him. He came so that  all can know and love Him. The kind of life our King chose here on earth announces that everyone, know mater your circumstance could become a part of His family and that all it takes is a willingness to see truth, see through the insignificance of mans world a fabricated merry go round of doctrine comprised of;   depressing,  limiting,  self serving ,oppressing,              listless, mindless, heartless callous, useless mandated redundant routine type existence………  requiring, obtaining, doing, going, being, becoming, having, needing, planning, occupying, lusting, wanting,           gathering, consuming, using, exploiting and all willing to  kill themselves following one person after the next down the escalator designated  for mere men idolizing itemized lists, ideas, definitions and rules by which they delusion themselves into believing and declaring that this is life, this is what we are born and bred for and  that this wasting of  heart and soul is worth breathing for.

Side note-that ain’t being free.

But when you see through the cyclone of bull, see there under all the debris there to what has always and will always be, the magnificent simplicity and beauty of His Word(! ) illuminating our purpose our existence and the promise that He has given to us! The awesomeness of His power, glory, grace  and promises He makes available at the insurmountable cost of free. All that He requires is our trust, belief,  faith and love as we follow and live for Him.

Who will you serve? The men of this world at the cost that always is and always will be- everything? Can you breath without anxiety? Can you sleep without worry? Is your day meaningful..to anyone? Does your work come with an uncompromising love from  caring, compassionate, considerate boss’ and co-workers who provide friendship and guidance and who are available to you 24 hours a day? Are you a valued, respected detrimental part of the company an aspect whose refined gifts and talents help keeps it together?

What happens 5, 10,20 years after you retire? Will any of those years you gave  to that job mater? Would they even let you back in the door? Will new and future employees’ know about the work you did there?  Would your old boss or company still even exist?
How about in the nursing home, when you’re terminal, and can’t walk or care for yourself will those people or that job come to your side and keep you company?Will they write or call?

How about family? Do you think that being connected by blood means family? Why, because they’re the most positive, influential, loving, understanding, intellectually and emotionally nourishing supportive people and you can’t live without their protection and comfort? Because they are the ones who  put their arms around you and lift you up when you’re down or who hold you during the times you’ve made a mess of things? Is it because they’re the ones who’ve helped and will help guide your life? Have they raised you to be a strong, honest, selfless, resilient, virtuous person who can’t but help to positively affect people who are inspired by your genuine concern?

Who will be at your side when you die, your past or your future? Who will you give your life too? Who and what will you live for?

March on Through the Wind

“March on march on through the wind and hail
we will not be bound to the lies they tell”

as more and more technology is released unto the hounds
reality slips further and further away
days blurr into pea soup
while the masses shoot up on
influenced illnesses
gobbling down prescriptions to get them through
their own created crisis
passing down ignorance
populating a country with mutants
this is what you get for 21 century intelligence

“But I need this, I need this fix to fill in
all the empty I’ve been told needs filling, my life
is such a mess, I’m soo deep in there’s nothing of me left”
This,
humanities epitaph

the road is paved,gleaming over with pride and greed
disease and death
no mater how much fame and wealth you possess
nor how many people in the world know your name
doing anything to obtain popularity among men
is all done so in vain
none of that can give you breath
only those who give up their life
will live on after death

many will be chained to and
held back by the maddening reign of mediocrity
but a few rise above the tide and thrive
refusing to climb aboard the ship of vanities
a ship on coarse to collide with a predetermined destiny
it carries the twisted ideas of individualism and success
attached to the envy and foolishness
of souls who give up their place in the eternal kingdom
for an income fit for the dead

the strong clothe themselves in humbleness and
soar above the sky and land billowing with fumes of foolishness, arrogance, selfishness,
sickness and poverty of the soul
watching in sorrow
because
of all the possibilities a brand new world holds
chosen to bare the dream
is one that mankind’s
blacked to ash
turning their backs
trampling on the precious gift;
that of which is the meaning of our existence

here in tribulation we joyfully stand
with sight we see and a knowing we understand
our voices shout out praise and thanks to He who
gives us grace
He who delivers us from evil
He who gives us strength to defeat the great deceiver
His word is food for all believers
here in salvation seekers find the one and only truth
the one truth that severs mankind’s freedom noose

2004

 

I stood casually

coolly consoling the frothy waves

of confusion

swigging around in my brain

elbows on the counter

talking half in jest

half in desperation

to the lady in white

who was less than thrilled

to have an unexpected guest clock in after “normal” hours.

 

I looked to my left

down the long dark hallway

lit at the very end

by one centered ceiling light

shinning down

on a thrift store

faux wooden chair

against the wall

barred window behind it

that chair

silent

staring back at me

daring me

to sit and join in the chaos its collected over the decades

 

even in the simplicity of its madness

it was beautiful

a single piece of calm art

like still waters disguising  below the

unknown busyness of its hidden occupants

and knowing what was

behind the closed doorways

that lined down that hallway

 

and the only thing  i knew

was that it would be minutes

before I too

became a guest

another soul

invisible under the florescent lights

Death Before First Breath

What I’m writing here isn’t a judgement on those who’ve had an abortion. This country has a twisted way of bringing up it’s youth on the morals and values of the devil. By the time most of us realize that what we’ve done, what we’ve been taught to believe or to think or how to feel about something, isn’t in the realm of normal, but in fact is an act which leads down a road paved with fools gold right into hell. The only way to see this world for the truth that it is, is NOT to be of it.

We’ve lost touch with the human in all of us. Instead we rely on so called experts and machines to tell us its definition and even then we narrow it down to fit our need and conscious so that we feel soothed and comforted about all the very abnormal decisions we make. This false sense of security enables fools to spread their propaganda with confidence and this country loves a fool.

People never needed to know that life existed within the womb of a pregnant women before the technology to see so was invented. Technology isn’t always good and all technology having to do with the whole creation of life has made monsters and fools of a so called “advanced” peoples. 2,000 years ago, the Bible tells of a prophet called John was born to Zachari and Elizabeth. Elizabeth’s age was well over that of a fertile women but the Lord heard the prayers of His faithful servants and blessed the couple. In the book of Luke we read about an angel of the Lord appearing to Zachari and in one verse Luke 1:15 says

 

“For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost even in his mothers womb.”

When Mary, Elizabeth’s cousin came to visit her in her sixth month Elizabeth said in Luke 1:44

“For lo as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.”

( and here we know Elizabeth was sixth months pregnant Luke 1:36)

Here, written 2,000 years ago is an account of proof that people knew life began at conception. Why would the God of the universe give the Holy Spirit to a human still in the womb of a women if, as, Family Planning and all in agreement with this twisted organization claim that life does not begin until after birth? Family planning says it knows more than God. So to0 does anyone that agrees with abortion. That’s a pretty cocky and stupid statement.

America is built on the Bible, it is built under God-this fact isn’t debatable. If you don’t like it move. But when the American government allows the devil and all of his minions in the form of agencies and organizations and in individuals to set their opinions over the perfect truth and Law of God- which is the Law the United State of America was founded under by brave men and women, we don’t have an America anymore but something weak and obsessed with using lies and deceit to build something perverse.

The truth is life begins at conception. Ask yourself if your mother had an abortion, would you be here right now? The fact that there exists abortion mills and that men and women are trained to dissect a human unto death and it’s not called murder, the fact that millions of people who call themselves Christian or Catholic or any other denomination under God they think up-and that these mills are accepted is an atrocity. This is a tribute to our humanity, color it any way you want, it’s a technology and mindset worthy only of that of garbage scum.

Was Jesus a Motivational Speaker

Was Jesus a Motivational speaker? Absolutely! But just absolutely nothing like the motivational teacher speaker preachers of today that are flooding churches and Christian TV. If you need a quick but fleeting pick me up you can tune in to the Trinity Broadcast channel any time of day and get a confidence boost from preachers like Joel Osteen who in a half hour will leave you pumped up and ready to put your foot down to stand up to your unappreciative and demeaning boss or your mother in law. But that’s false motivation,that’s not Jesus type motivation. If your looking to learn everything about Jesus and the Bible, pick the Bible up yourself and read the truth because it would take years of watching these preachers in order to string together the entirety of each Book.

What preachers don’t have today is absolute truth. They choose instead to pick out and scale down a topic into a couple of words from the Bible and insert emotions trending in line along with popular public feelings. But Jesus didn’t aim for the title of most popular preacher.He was and is complete truth and when a person gets a hold of the truth there is nothing more motivating than truth eternal.Jesus motivated people right down to their soul, He awakened their Spirit and lifted the veil off the materialistic world of man and exposed our higher purpose. He motivated people into action. He stirs the sleeper . The transformation within a person may or may not be immediate but something amazing and powerful happens. His motivation exists within you 24 hours a day everyday. You want to know how to deal with the negative, with the sorrow, anger frustration and disappointment? Every single problem you could face its solution is right there in His book. Do you need motivation to learn how to be a better parent, teacher, leader and overall person? Don’t waste your time on “experts” who’s knowledge comes from their own beliefs, learn the only way that maters, His way the truth. His way is worth leaving everything behind that has to do with man ,it is worth the persecution and its worth dying for; millions have. He teaches the ultimate state of mind and He doesn’t make exceptions or coddle those who are weak and wishy washy, a lifestyle not even imaginable to those who hear and understand. He plainly laid out everything that has to be done in order for us to reep rewards and ultimately join Him and rule along with Him in His kingdom . He didn’t pepper His speeches with comforting words, He wasn’t concerned about the reaction of those selfish (today their called sensitive) people whose only reaction is a defensive one accompanied by huffing and puffing out the question who does He think He is?

Jesus loves mankind.His desire is that none parish. He’d rather everyone be saved but He knew that few would be. Man’s hearts are naturally evil, and those who refuse to hear choose instead to live a lie that soothes and comforts their conscious allowing them to exist without a care in a fantasy land.

Heaven is a place more majestic and pure than anything we can imagine. Its a place you wouldn’t expect to find people who’d live out their whole lives for them self, who wouldn’t recognize God and who refused to be obedient to Him and to the commandments and laws plainly stated in the Bible. For those who don’t respect the laws of obedience laid out in the Bible and who believe it’s ok to pick and choose which to follow I say, you follow the silly rules of man, you follow laws because there are consequences .To those that believe that by just saying they believe in Jesus they;ll get into heaven I say is it as simple as making a statement in this world to get into Oxford? To participate in the Olympics, or ride in the Kentucky Derby, to live on Park Ave or be an astronaut, get into a private New York club for millionaires? If mere people put restrictions on and requirements by allowing only the “best of the best” in and restrict 99% of peoples from entering than what makes you think access to the most supreme place in the universe would be any less restrictive?

A true preacher will equip people with every thing they need to know and they will have personal contact and keep watch over every single one of their members making sure their on the straight path. A preachers only job is to be like Jesus and teach what He taught in the Bible. Congregations are to be disciples and nothing less. It’s that simple.The choice is yours whether you want to be a part of the His family and have the honor of calling yourself Christian. But it’s an all or nothing choice. Just knowing Jesus and hearing His preaching motivates people to accept nothing less from themselves and if you’re deliberately living for the system created by man, for your job your car your house your title your golf team your shopping sprees, anything that is not Jesus centered, than stop abusing the word Christian by demeaning and sulling it. If preachers have the same congregation members in their pews year after year and in a life that hasn’t changed, that’s a failing ministry. Today’s preachers aren’t selective with who they let stay in their church. The Bible clearly describes what the church is and what happens when blatant sinners are allowed to remain in it. Is it no wonder that the states these mega churchs with 10s of 1000s of members are located in is the poorest in the nation along with the largest homeless population? If these churches were true to God, the reality of the state would be one of success and prosperity. But the sad reality that most churches have created is an outcome that never fails when the only thing motivated is the ego and the only motivation is money.
