The great rivers of this Life are in the power of the Lord. And they carry headlong all those who despise Him: and entangle their paths. They sweep away their banks. (they know no boundaries to the damage they can cause). Their flooding catches the bodies (of weak, sinful ones) and destroy their lives. For they (Life’s trials, tribulations, and hardships) are more swift than lightning and more aggressive. Those who cross (meet them) in faith are not moved (troubled or distressed); And all those who walk on them without blemish (in purity) shall not be afraid. For the lesson in them is what the Lord hath done. All those who cross (meet) them in faith are not moved. (troubled or distressed). Put on, therefore, the name of the Lord (Jesus Christ), and know Him. Then, you shall cross them without danger, for the rivers (and seas) will be subject to you. The Lord (Jesus Christ Himself) has bridged them by His own word; and He walked and crossed them on foot. His footsteps stood firm on the water (undisturbed) and were not injured; they were as firm as a tree that is set strong against the winds. Even though the waves were lifted up on this side and that, yet the footsteps of our Lord Messiah stood firm and were not deterred from their purpose. And a similar way is appointed for those who cross after Him. And for those who will adhere (steadfastly) to the course of faith in Him, who worship His name. Hallelujah. So be it.
For me to even suspect that others would daily read my blog, or even “get anything out of it” is possibly hoping for too much. That alone, doesn’t matter to me so much anymore. I have surrendered my personal ambitions for success in this endeavor; and leave the outcome to God to prosper as He sees fit. No ‘arm twisting’ or coercion is taking place here. You always have, and will have the freedom to read or go on to do something more enlightening. The thing is… MOST PEOPLE HAVEN’T REALLY EXAMINED OR “LOOKED OVER” ANY OF THIS BLOG! That much saddens me. But, if only for my own sake; I will continue to write, hoping that someone other than me will read any of it! If you happen to read this today GOD BLESS YOU! You, for one, have made my day a little more pleasant and rewarding. Here is my Truth for you today: “The mediator between the head and the hands must be the heart!” None of what I say matters if your heart is not in the right place. All that you may know won’t help you. Nor will what you attempt to do, UNLESS your heart is for the Truth! May what truth I have shared help you today. PS: What is here is ALL OPEN for you to purview. Don’t just stop at the entry for today! Enjoy it all, and comment if you’d like to.
I learnt something interesting that came to my mind today. I say, “It came from the LORD GOD HIMSELF.” But you can be the judge of that. When I placed my dog, Dorothy, down from my bed today; she subsequently wandered to the foot of the bed and shook herself. I asked the LORD, “Why does she always do that?” Here is His answer to me. “Dogs and Cats are sometimes like this. You may think it strange. Don’t they LIKE me? NO! it isn’t for that at all. Most all animals have their own protective space, as do Humans. That is the obvious Physical reason. BUT… there IS a “Spiritual component” that we do not even normally consider. Could it be that animals, since the Beginning of “Creation”, have developed as a ‘defense mechanism’ this automatic reflex reaction as a result OF MAN’S SIN? You “see” animals are, by far, more highly sensitive than people. However, MAN IS NOW “SUPERIOR” to them. They fear, as they detect in their spirits, SIN. Therefore, they may “shake off” this ‘negative’ vibrational frequency as a way of telling you/us, “I want no part of this! Don’t touch me with that!” Something to think about.
As I consider what to write about today; this very strange (strange to others, not to me) thought that came to me. Mine is a “purple” heart! Why the color purple? Automatically many will think, “Oh, he’s thinking of the military medal given by the United States of America’s President for heroism in a time of wartime activity.” NO! that is NOT what I’m thinking of! Yes, such ideas as bravery, devotion, faithfulness and great sacrifice come to me as symbolically associated with the color purple. BUT, I’M THINKING ALWAYS, AS BEST I CAN, OF “GOD” and NOT MY SELF! So…. does “GOD” ACTUALLY AND LITERALLY HAVE A HEART THAT’S “PURPLE”? And just as important, do I have a similar “purple” heart? Yes, and no. Mine can NEVER, EVER, BE THE LOVE, DEVOTION, AND FAITHFULNESS OF GOD! (Father, Son, and Holy Ghost). And yet…. I AM BEING COMFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF GOD ‘IN CHRIST’. And so are you! “Symbolically” speaking YES, “GOD” IS NOW HUMAN. So, yes He literally has what we have designated/worded as a “heart”. Is it “symbolically” purple for me, only because: TO THOSE WHO SEE THINGS SPIRITUALLY, IT IS this “color” of absolute humility, complete healing, and total Wisdom personified! It also radiates with the most beautiful “colors” of the rainbow. In particular a heavenly golden light. Like Jesus Christ, my heart is also obedient (not totally, but I’m learning) and repentant. Oh Lord Jesus, Thank You! Hallelujah and Amen.
I asked GOD whether Satan was one of His “rejected” thoughts. Whether He could have been “better off” without such? He answered me, “No, It was for the best. I have no “rejects”, and I make no mistakes!
“My Dear Child, before you open your eyes to begin another day, Pray to me! Before you sleep at night, Pray to me! And before you react AT ALL, Pray to me! There are these three things which are your life. My Spirit, My Word, and Your Prayers. Without these three things you will be dead. REMEMBER THIS CONSTANTLY! For Life is “War in Action”. Your journey through it is not guaranteed. But, MY HELP AND LOVE IS! REST ASSURED, BY FAITH YOU WILL SUCCEED. BELIEVE, IT! Amen.”
Start every day stating: “This is the day I will see Satan totally defeated. This will continue every day and every second. It is my “unofficial” ‘Kick Satan’s B—‘ Day!
What if, the Truth of Jesus as the Messiah/Christ could possibly be found in another Religion? THIS IS WHAT IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO, SO TO SPEAK. So… What is the answer to this question? THE ANSWER IS AN UNEQIVICAL NO! We do NOT learn of God’s “appointed” and “anointed” King in any other way, other than through Jesus! Therefore, we Christians can unashamedly claim JESUS AS KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS because HE ALONE has GOD’S FULL BACKING AND SUPPORT. Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Confucianism, Zoroastrianism, etcetera DO NOT MAKE THIS CLAIM! Why is this claim important? Because, THIS ALONE was GOD’S INFINITE AND ETERNAL PLAN. THAT is why Jesus could say so boldly: “I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. NO MAN COMETH TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME.” Why even bother about the ‘so-called’ 18 “missing years” of Jesus’ life (whether spent in India or not. DEFINITELY NOT!) when Jesus was “God incarnate”! How ridiculous that we should think that GOD WOULD NEED HIS SON TO LEARN BUDDHISM or ANY OTHER SCRIPTURE OR FAITH! How ridiculous that we should think that the MESSIAH/CHRIST did NOT have to be born because He always existed as such, regardless of what this meant to the Jews? ENOUGH ALREADY! God doesn’t need a “True Religion”! God IS TRUTH! If only we had believed this from the beginning; then it would have possibly been much different. But, HALLELUJAH! We NOW KNOW JESUS. AMEN FOR THAT!
