    Pomp - Pompous or Pious - Piety ?

    in Religion

     Well folks I'm not sure where this one came from other than from the Holy Spirit. I wasn't even thinking of the next show, since I have already placed several head of this aready. I have to say though in all fairness, I have been praying for guidance for up coming broadcasts here on the Christian Warrior Network.
    While in prayer I ask, what topic should we do? I always include the Trinity in the decission making process so that when the topic hits me out of the blue like this one did, I then know in my heart what we should talk about next. When it came to this subject I knew I had to look into researching it. Once that process id finished I know without a doubt that it is a message from Christ to you.
    Pomp - Pompous or Pious - Piety, what a title. He is such a good writer. This is going to be a very powerful message. Yet if you don't take something positive from this program, you had best, just crawl back under a rock or at the very least, lock yourself in the closet. That is, until you come to a realization of what this subjects meaning is to you personaly and or what, should be your take on this subject.
    This is the kind of topic that puts condemnation on you, “IF,” you don't really have a care about it. It is a subject that will cause you to rebel from the spirit or cause you to embrace the spirit and admit what ever it is you need to acknowledge.
    So don't forget this shows date and time, make a note of it, put up a few sticky notes and tie a string around your finger and we will see you here on the Celtic Cross Radio broadcast.
    God bless and have a wonderful week... Bp. Andrew

    "A MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY"

    in Christianity

    There is a cause for alarm in the condition of the religious world today. God’s mercy has been trifled with. The multitude make void the law of Jehovah, “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Infidelity prevails in many of the churches in our land; not infidelity in its broadest sense,—an open denial of the Bible,—but an infidelity that is robed in the garb of Christianity, while it is undermining faith in the Bible as a revelation from God. Fervent devotion and vital piety have given place to hollow formalism. As the result, apostasy and sensualism prevail. Christ declared, “As it was in the days of Lot, ... even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” The daily record of passing events testifies to the fulfillment of His words. The world is fast becoming ripe for destruction. Soon the judgments of God are to be poured out, and sin and sinners are to be consumed.—Patriarchs and Prophets, 166. – {ChS 56.1}

    "THE HEALTH REFORM MONDAY NIGHT TALK"

    in Christianity

    Through successive ages of darkness, in the midnight of heathenism, God permitted men to try the experiment of finding out God by their own wisdom, not to demonstrate their inability to his satisfaction, but that men themselves might see that they could not obtain a knowledge of God and of Jesus Christ his Son, save through the revelation of his word by the Holy Spirit. When Christ came to the world, the experiment had been fully tried, and the result made it evident that the world by wisdom knew not God. Even in the church God has allowed men to test their own wisdom in this matter, but when a crisis has been brought about through human fallibility, God has risen mightily to defend his people. When the church has been brought low, when trial and oppression have come upon his people, he more abundantly exalted them by signal deliverance. When unfaithful teachers came among the people, weakness followed, and the faith of God’s people seemed to wane; but God arose and purged his floor, and the tried and true were lifted up. – {CE 94.2}
    There are times when apostasy comes into the ranks, when piety is left out of the heart by those who should have kept step with their divine Leader. The people of God separate from the source of their strength, and pride, vanity, extravagance, and display follow. There are idols within and idols without; but God sends the Comforter as a reprover of sin, that his people may be warned of their apostasy and rebuked for their backsliding. When the more precious manifestations of his love shall be gratefully acknowledged and appreciated, the Lord will pour in the balm of comfort and the oil of joy. – {CE 95.1}
    When men are led to realize that their human calculations come far short, and are convinced that their wisdom is but foolishness, then it is that they turn to the Lord to seek him with all the heart, that they may find him. – {CE 95.2}

    The Way of the New Essenes - Page 25

    in Spirituality

    Leaving alone for now the Way of the Essenes, do you know your way? Mahatma for the “high-souled” Gandhi gives us clear directions: “the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Now we know that losing the self is the goal, how do we get there? What path do we take? The Buddha’s fourth Noble Truth does state that there is, in Truth, a path to the end of suffering. As it happens, both Tao and Torah, words which sound curiously alike, mean “the way, the teaching.”


    Also “high-souled,” the Essenes specialized in “being the change they wished to see in the world.” The earliest mention of this venerable tribe is by Jewish philosopher Philo of Alexandria (c. 20-54 CE), noting their concerns with piety, their dedication to honesty, their sense of community and their sacred vision of freedom. Since the recent discoveries of the Dead Sea Scrolls, a new interest was sparked in the Essenes and, through them, in the Hebrew Torah as a possible Wisdom Path, that is, as a way to losing the self. Yet, little is known about the other ways in which the same Hebrew Torah was received by the other tribes that existed next to the Essenes, at the time of Jesus. This difference in sensibility will be what we will focus on Sunday.  


    This meeting will be as passionate as ever, as we will learn from the Essenes how to express the beauty we love to do: using our newly revealed archetypal and multifocal XPR lens to re-frame a new understanding of our collective religious history.  We will open to a new potential for Biblical understanding, that is, an understanding of the Self. We know that 2000 years ago—at the time of Jesus, the Torah (the Five Books of Moses) was read in twelve main ways, by twelve tribes named after their clan names. Here is where it becomes really interesting: what if each tribe was...

    Spiritual Fruit and Manifestations: Walking in the Spirit

    in Spirituality

    Galatians 5:22-26 (NKJ)


     


    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.


     


    stoy-kheh'-o—from a derivative of steicho (to range in regular line); to march in (military) rank (keep step), i.e. (figurative) to conform to virtue and piety :- walk (orderly).


    It literally means to walk in line with; it is not the same as the word used for physical walking in (Gal 5:16). To walk in the Spirit is to walk along the path that He lays down


    The person who is led by the Spirit will do what is right freely, not by a sign in the road; by set of rules or by compulsion from the law.


     


    Walking in the Spirit is a sign of maturity understanding our purpose!

    THE MASONIC SECRET

    in Lifestyle

    Aren't you the least bit curious?  Of course. It's a fraternity 300 years old and going. No frat party. No male testosterone and alcohol driven embarrassment to themselves.  But august; philanthropic. Authentic and dignified. Striving with piety answerable to common sense; endorsing equality and liberty of humanity; mystery; private and secret to protect it from populist verdicts; signs of greetings known to few; real.


    Even we wonder how and why, don't you? What is it that a man finds in masonry that he can't find anywhere else?  Not fame or fortune. Leadership becomes service to mankind but how does that endure?


    If you wonder what it is, the best I can  tell you is that it is a feeling.  The one we experience when truth finds us. Not being smarter; not hubris, not arrogant or smug. When a person  'sees' what others do not, in a world so frightened and mistrustful, those truths are a weighty responsibility. That is what we call humility. Our task is to find balance in life and live in that state and the universe unfolds.  


    When a person has matured enough to take herself or himself seriously, when he understands himself, masonry  opens the mind, the spirit, the heart. Every ending is the beginning of something next.

    Bl. John of Parma

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    Bl. John of Parma - The seventh general minister of the Franciscan Order, John was known for his attempts to bring back the earlier spirit of the Order after the death of St. Francis of Assisi. He was born in Parma, Italy, in 1209. It was when he was a young philosophy professor known for his piety and learning that God called him to bid good-bye to the world he was used to and enter the new world of the Franciscan Order. 


    In 1245, Pope Innocent IV called a general council in the city of Lyons, France. Crescentius, the Franciscan minister general at the time, was ailing and unable to attend. In his place he sent Father John, who made a deep impression on the Church leaders gathered there. 


    And so, in 1247, John of Parma was elected to be minister general. The surviving disciples of St. Francis rejoiced in his election, expecting a return to the spirit of poverty and humility of the early days of the Order. And they were not disappointed. As general of the Order John traveled on foot, accompanied by one or two companions, to practically all of the Franciscan convents in existence. Sometimes he would arrive and not be recognized, remaining there for a number of days to test the true spirit of the brothers.


    The pope called on John to serve as legate to Constantinople, where he was most successful in winning back the schismatic Greeks. Many years later, John learned that the Greeks, who had been reconciled with the Church for a time, had relapsed into schism. Though 80 years old by then, John received permission from Pope Nicholas IV to return to the East in an effort to restore unity once again. On his way, John fell sick and died.


    He was beatified in 1781.
