Not place he wanted to be

Not the place he wanted to be

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

 

It has been quite some time since I’ve posted on this blog; you might say that I had to take a long hard look at my condition.  I am not immune to the emotional or psychological pain that many feel due to past hurts and failures of life. So in writing this piece I want to capture the raw emotion to make you feel what many experiences on a daily basis; which causes them to turn to mind altering substances to cover their pain.

 

Living in the United States of America is to live in one of the wealthiest countries on earth. The problem with this sentence is that we lack the compassion to match our financial prowess. In a country so full of resources, there is no reason to have its people living on the streets in squalor, yet it is the case in every major city. The powers to be will tell you that they’re all mentally ill and should be doped until they are rendered harmless.  If you could spend a day talking with some of these people, none would have envisioned their future, sleeping on urine and feces-laden sidewalks in or on cardboard boxes. Nor would they have in envisioned a life of drug abuse, prostitution, and many other things just to survive each day.

 

Every person out there and some on their way had dreams of a future indifferent to their current situation. I just cannot believe as children they sat around thinking; when I become an adult, I’m going to be homeless and strung out on drugs or maybe even an alcoholic. Maybe I’ll lie down and let countless men and women have their way with me. Maybe I’ll ascribe to a life of crime, robbing and burglarizing to feed my drug habit. If not for the grace (power) of God there go I; is what I find myself saying from time to time. You see, I very well could have been one of these people. I had every reason to fail and not many at all to succeed. As a child growing up, I saw nothing but violence in the home of my upbringing.

 

I remember vividly hearing my grandparents argue one day when I was about five years of age, and seeing my grandmother grabbing her favorite instrument of pain (knife), to inflict physical pain somewhere upon the body of my grandfather. I remember hearing my grandfather scream my grandmother’s name, and say tell her that she had cut him as the blood ran profusely down his arm. I remember the fear that this one act of aggression embedded in me and the tears that streamed down my young face.  As I saw the man, I was immensely fond of and also my best friend in the whole world whence in pain. More importantly, the fear in his eyes when he realized he couldn’t stop the bleeding. About that time my grandmother realizing what she had done, begin to sob and say what have I done, what have I done? She then ran into the bathroom, to get bandages, gauze and ointment from the medicine cabinet to play the doctor on the wound that she had inflicted.

 

Back then just about every household or, at least, the ones that I visited had a white wash basin with the red trim on its top. I watched as she wrapped his arm in gauze and bandages, telling my grandfather that he shouldn’t have made her mad. I got mad and wanted to give her a piece of my mind that she was wrong, but what could a five-year-old kid say to an adult woman?  I was afraid and didn’t want to get cut like granddad. At that moment, I hated her with all of the hatred I could muster in my little mind. How dare she hurt my best friend? As I sat there watching my grandfather soak his arm in that basin full of ice water I hurt inside but had no one to talk to, so I covered it up with thoughts of better days.

 

The point of this story is to make you aware that events in the lives of people can make them turn to drinking, drug abuse or many other things to mask the emotional and psychological pain and scars from their past. Placing labels upon people, because you may not have experienced their pain or understand their condition is a cop out and a retreat from responsibility, to love thy neighbor as thyself. It just escapes me how people can see someone in need, and just walk by them as if they do not exist. It is a cruel world out there, but you have to expect the world to be selfish, and uncaring; what’s most unfortunate is that a lot of the blind eye attitude today is by those in the church (The Body of Christ).

 

We’re so busy arguing about doctrinal differences that we can’t see the decay that is encroaching upon our borders. The church (The Ecclesia), is duty bound to protect and support those organizations that lend aid to the less fortunate. As soldiers, we were put here to defend against and have an obligation to watch for the encroachment of the enemy forces upon territory assigned to our charge.  To control, and even times necessary to engage the enemy in combat. Where the church has fallen short is recognizing the advancement of the hostile forces upon the sovereign territory of the mind, which is that sovereign territory that belongs to God. The consciousness of the church has become filled with frivolous unyielding projects, to make one busy and proverbially spinning its wheels. Revivals, mega-this mega-that events, promised to deliver the attendees from the challenges of life. When the only thing they’re rid of is those hard earned dollars which could be given to someone in a downtrodden state, who find themselves having to eat out of garbage cans to survive; lest we not speak of the saints that are just barely staying afloat.

 

In the Book of Galatians chapter 6:10 it speaks there, and I paraphrase to do good to everyone, especially those of the household of faith. If we are blindly ignoring those closest to us, it’s no wonder why there are so many people on the street. My heart mourns for those on the street, and even those that have to resort to illegal methods to survive.  I remember as a little boy watching a commercial of a Native American shedding tears as he observed the land he loved, being destroyed by pollution. I shed that same tear(s), for the lack of love demonstrated by the church, I would scream too the top of my lungs if it would change the direction of people; so I’ve resorted to writing in hopes that these words will inspire others to the call to action.

 

So in closing, again the question I ask you; ARE WE OUR BROTHERS KEEPER?

 

Hour Glass3

And there shall be … upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; … Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth.” Luke 21:25, 26

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore he who resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment (Rom. 13:1, 2).

Declare these things; exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you. Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for any honest work . . . (Titus 2:15-3:1).
Life as we know it seems to be coming apart at the proverbial seams; every time one turns on the television another tragic event has taken place.

The result is chaos and confusion, and people are either walking around in a state of dismay or a heightened state anger. Most recently another young black man Fredrick Gray dies while in the custody of police officers in Baltimore, Maryland. As you might guess violence, erupts and rioting ensues. The end times destruction machine is being fed, and men are coming under the influence of its power, reacting out of psychological hurts, pains, and frustrations. The first thing questioned is the presence of God and why this thing continues to happen. There are no perfect responses to this question; it would only serve to feed into another question and those asking would never be satisfied; because they’ve made up in their minds that this is an attack on a race of people and not man.

Everyone is failing to see that most people are receiving their information through Social Media, network news, print media; all of which have the propensity to be tainted by the persons telling the story.  Few ever consider the agenda of those that employ this trickery on a daily basis; you could say a tail bearing spirit is working hard to deceive the masses. In comparison, the US Army has a unit known as the PSYOPSDIV or (psychological operation division) which deploys propaganda leaflets to depose the leaders of that country, torture its inhabitants by playing loud music and shining bright lights all hours of the night.  The function of this unit is to create mistrust and fear amongst the civilian population before any grounds forces engaging in combat.

Every day reporters share stories of death and destruction; 7.8 earthquake hits Nepal death toll sitting at 8500+ people killed, reports say could be as many as 10,000 when it is all said and done. Calbuco Volcano that has been dormant for over forty-seven years erupts in Chile,` severe weather and heavy rain possible in the area threatens to cause massive mudslides. Economies are failing, ISIS killing Christians, men’s hearts failing them for fear, and so on and so forth.

The time is not long; the handwriting is on the wall! The Bible records that the love of many will wax cold, which means there is no longer any value in life.  People care only about themselves and aren’t concerned with their fellow man.  Skulls and crossbones pepper the landscape and the bodies of men, women boys and girls in the form of tattoos, the symbols of destruction, not many seems to be paying attention. In fact, one could even support the argument that man has been struck with blindness, spiritually but blindness all the same.

To add insult to injury the church lies dormant and unresponsive, truly we’re in the Laodicean age. The framework of Love is being torn down and removed from the earth; darkness its evil twin is moving in and taking its place. This downward spiral didn’t just start we’ve been on this gradual slide for approximately the last forty years. While we have been preaching buying and selling; naming and claiming, go and get your house, car, and land the enemy has been acquiring territory.

In the Books of Daniel and Revelation, this time, is clearly spelled out for all to see, yet the watering down of the word has indeed put many Christians to sleep, or as the Bible says deceived. Our only hope is to unify with haste, and that means tearing down the walls of Jericho that keeps us divided and hindered. If there was ever a time to take an active look at our dividing lines, now is the time! We can no longer uphold the age-old traditions and should sincerely seek the face of God.  The world and many in the Body of Christ are becoming anti-God, most certainly building a foundation for the entrance of the anti-Christ. We know that time is coming and already is here where men are following every whim of doctrine. There is even a quote from the Pope;
“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class! We have created children in the likeness of God, and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all! And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace. If we, each doing our part, do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter that so much. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: we will meet one another there.”

I truly love God and my neighbor, I feel a burning desire to go to the mountain top and scream to the top of my voice “WAKE UP,” the sands of time are ebbing away!!!

 

Peace and Blessings

ASLEEP ON DUTY

soldierssleepingsleeping_soldier36 You must be like people waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet so that when he comes and knocks, they can open the door for him at once. 37 Those slaves the master will find alert when he comes will be blessed. I assure you: He will get ready, have them recline at the table, then come and serve them. 38 If he comes in the middle of the night, or even near dawn, and finds them alert, those slaves are blessed. 39 But know this: If the homeowner had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40 You also be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.” Luke 12:36-40

We are living in a time when people all over the earth are in a state sleepwalking with both eyes and ears open; yet do not seem to be working. It is as if they’ve been hypnotized or lulled into some type of trance by all of the noise in the atmosphere; this noise can be deemed as white noise.

White noise is a new phenomenon to the untrained ear, it sounds like static. However, to the trained ear it is known not be static, but recognized as a signal where a message can be hid. It is often times used for a specific purpose; those using it are cloaked in secrecy. White noise is actually a specific signal generated from a directed source. In other words this noise is being put in the atmosphere is by a sinister source. If you’re spiritually in tune, the source should come as no surprise, its satan the character formally known as the prince of the air.

This noise is responsible for various types of behaviors, gross violence against one another, perverted styles of living by men and women. However what we are focusing on in this blog is that fact that no one is cognizant of their surroundings, many are oblivious to what is taking place. This white noise is so powerful people are convinced that nothing has changed; it is as if we’re still in the days of black and white television, the good old days of wholesome living; The Andy Griffith Show, country living, fresh air breathing. The aroma of hot apple pie cooling on the window seal, a very dangerous posture.

Let me explain where I’m going with this line of thought, being born in the sixties everything presented itself as wholesome, from television to radio and many other forms of entertainment. Yes we thought those were the days and the best of times, yet even then that white noise was present. There were the bans issued by the Supreme Court to remove prayer from schools, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the civil rights protest and the anti-war protest against the war in Vietnam. In 1968 the assassination of Attorney General, and presidential candidate Robert Kennedy and that of Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. It left everyone numb from the events yet within a short time everyone would return to the normalcy of that time.  Now read below the definition of white noise garnered from the internet;

An infinite-bandwidth white noise signal is a purely theoretical construction. The bandwidth of white noise is limited in practice by the mechanism of noise generation, by the transmission medium and by finite observation capabilities. Thus, a random signal is considered “white noise” if it is observed to have a flat spectrum over the range of frequencies that is relevant to the context. For an audio signal, for example, the relevant range is the band of audible sound frequencies, between 20 to 20,000 Hz. Such a signal is heard as a hissing sound, resembling the /sh/ sound in “ash”. In music and acoustics, the term white noise may be used for any signal that has a similar hissing sound. White noise draws its name from white light, which is commonly (but incorrectly) assumed to have a flat spectral power density over the visible band. The term white noise is sometimes used in the context of phylogenetically based statistical methods to refer to a lack of phylogenetic pattern in comparative data. It is sometimes used in non- technical contexts, in the metaphoric sense of “random talk without meaningful contents”.

This definition is very technical and I am neither a scientist nor a researcher of this information. No I’m just a man that is wondering if I’m the only one that sees what is taking place. There are two specific phrases within this definition that captured my attention “heard as a hissing sound,” and “random talk without meaningful contents.” Remember that Adam and Eve were mesmerized (seduced) by a slick talking snake in the garden with hissing and random talk without meaningful content. Such is the case today and if savvy we see that nothing has changed, he is using the same old tricks just a bit more sophisticated. The masses have unknowingly fallen victim to the white noise, produced out of satan, who has transformed himself into and angel of light. He comes in the form of racist talk show host that call themselves Christians, notable men and women of God more interested in reality television shows than allowing their light to shine toward the masses.

In this blog I have used pictures of US Soldiers sleeping, not to defame them but to rather bring home the point that we are all sleeping on duty, Christian and non-Christian alike and it is for this reason that the return of Jesus, will be like a thief breaking into the homes of many while they lay fast asleep at night.

Let us take a look at some of the things that have changed, today it seems to be the norm rather than the bazaar; homosexuality, the pagan ritual of tattooing one’s body, casual sex, provocative dressing (leaving nothing to the imagination), child molestation, pornography, human trafficking for sexual slave trade, crimes committed by those sworn to uphold the law, twisted courtroom decisions, murder at an alarming rate, all of which is spoken against in the Bible. The world literally is going to hell in a hand basket.  We’ve allowed to much compromising and it has weakened our stance. Most certainly when we look at the Book of Ezekiel 33; where we that are Christian are called to be the watchmen sent to sound the alarm. From where I stand, the watch tower has been abandoned, and or the sentry is fast asleep after a night of fast living.

With no one on duty, to get the attention or raise awareness, the question is how many people, will senselessly perish that didn’t have to? Wake up soldiers, wake up warfare fighters. Wake up before it is to late because the great falling away is upon us.  My heart is heavy for all that I see, is there anyone at all that cares, will you join me in this fight? I need help building the coalition against the enemy which means titles cannot be important in this juncture, souls are perishing. It is no longer about swelling the numbers of congregations, with sit and do nothing attitudes is sending folks to a fiery hell! It is time for war!!!!!!!
