    Dark Sayings Upon the Harp

    in The Bible

    David's harp is without solution, or parallel.......fitful spirits seem ever to contend for mastery within its strings.......wailings of sorrow; groans of pain; shadows of doubt, despair, wonder, and fear; all show their face within its music.......enemies of the nation; enemies of the soul rage as if grace were driven away by the surges of passion and grief within.......and so these dark sayings upon the harp rise before Heaven, as the fist of rage in the face of chaos.......


     


    Man himself, is a dark saying on a harp.......are not we who sing, a universe of being within ourselves, in whom life, nature, and grace combine to make the unique music of our own harps? Man's soul is engraved, as it were, with dark sayings.......chamber on chamber of imagery, covered in mists and hues, they are there; and they are within.......it does seem that we are, at times, possessed of a consciousness, that is more than experience.......it is the music, seeking to resolve the discord within, and express itself in a being of inextinguishable sorrow, separated from his only hope.......and when our harp whispers the music of light,the dark saying on its soul flies before the tone.

    Rivers in a Desert Ministry

    in Religion

    Revelation 22:1 


    And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.


    2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.


    3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:


    4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.


    5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.


    6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.


    7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

    Self Love vs. Self Abuse

    in Spirituality

    I have been carrying around a 4 by 6 card that carries two affirmations. One affirmation stems from one of my father's old sayings: "Boy, you're always just a day late and a dollar short." Like many addicts and co-dependents, I have taken on the abuse given so freely to me and made it my own. That I'm always "a day late and a dollar short" comes into my thoughts frequently. That's self abuse. So my affirmations is: "I am always on time and I have plenty of money." This statement reverses my thinking and miraculously changes my behavior. The other affirmation is "All geniuses are dingbats." That's for when I lose my keys or go charging off on a mission that is bound to fail. So I try to choose my battles better and give everything I do my best shot. I forgive myself for making minor mistakes in the small things in life. I try to look at the big picture.

    The Interpersonal Connection ~ Father's ~ Part 2

    in Dads and Family

     Encouraging and Inspirational Words of Wisdom, Spirit and Life. Let's Talk About It, Then Pray About It. We as fathers desire our children to live long and fruitful lives just as our heavenly father means for us to, but that requires good teaching and modeling. Proverbs 4:10 states, “Hear, O my son and receive my sayings: and the years of thy life shall be many”. What true father would not want their children to have a long and happy life, but there needs to be consistent commitment from the father to the son. The lack of this commitment is seen today as our young sons are dying needlessly. Understanding thy place in the order and scheme of a family strengthens the family unit and binds the structure of individuals into a unit that is strong, and thus strengthens neighborhoods and communities.  


    Suggestions for men.....1. As children grow they become less dependent on us and start to make decisions for themselves, but we as men/fathers must stay active as models and advisors. Often just listening and being patient. 2. During adolescence there is a minimal tendency to ask parents for their opinions, it is important to ask questions and openly communicate not criticize. Men are prone to be impatient, but we should learn to wait and guide our talks not force them. 3. Be direct with your decisions and be Fair, a “No” means “No”. You send conflicting signals when you change your mind and don’t backup your words.


    Stay Connected and YOU Be Encouraged

    Get Your Poop In A Group! What does that mean?

    in Lifestyle

    Why do we come up with sayings, analogies, metaphors?  We do it because we can!  We are creative animals!  We can create anything from thought to a giant building or a meal to eat!  Be creative!  Getting your poop in a group had to do with being together!   It feels good to have it together!   What did you learn in school that really helped you be together, if anything?  Did learning about history make you love the people or have a dislike for some of the things the leaders have done?  Did reading about war, seeing it on television (with a straight-faced reporter spewing the news out) make you want to grow up?  What does "Get Your Poop In A Group!" really mean to you?


    Does higher levels of education do any good when there are no new businesses starting-up?  Can you be in business?  Should we groom our children to each be a business to end the envy of business (which by the way is the only way to build wealth).  Geniuses in business (no matter what age, gender, religion or other affiliation they claim) bring us values that we willingly buy.  Anyone that takes (steals) from the value of business is cheating.  Get your poop in a group -- get it together with the people who want a wealthy, healthy, safe world!  Stop following anyone or any cause that doesn't support the philosophy of "You are inherently good!"   Come talk with us about poop today!

    Does It Matter ?? Only Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You

    in Current Events

     If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father


    12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.


    13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:


    14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.


    15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.


    16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?


    17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.


    18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.


    19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.


    20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.


    21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.


    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?


    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


    24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

    Matthew 26:1 


    And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,


    2 Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.


    3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,


    4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.


    5 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.


    6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,


    7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.


    8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?


    9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.


    10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.


    11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.


    12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

    "The worst thing you can do in life is underestimate your adversary"

    in History

    We must now show that the Jesuits are the most deadly enemy the United States and the world, will ever have to face. This fact is virtually unknown among the people.  Using the utmost secrecy to conceal their plans, the Jesuits, through their facade of religion, has for many decades been infiltrating the United States in all levels of government(Fema) and their agenda is to rule the world.  As a result, the United States will soon lose its constitution(patriot act) and become a tyrannical, persecuting power(Romeland Security).  The right and left wing of party politics are both wings of the same bird(Jesuits).  The head(Satan) of the bird(Jesuits), determines the direction, not the wings. The Jesuits constitute one of the wisest, shrewdest, and most dangerous organized bodies of men to be found in this world.— Prof. L. T. Townsend.  The Real Conspiracy:


    Rom 3:4  God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

    BEING RELIGIOUS DOES NOT MAKE YOU SPIRITUAL

    in Relationships

    We will be discussing the importance of taking off the 'religious' cloaks that we wear to perform as spiritual characters. Too many people are being misguided into thinking that it is okay to behave the way they do and still call themselves Christians. Religious spirits are more prevalent in the world today, and spirituality is being looked upon as something we can do or learn later. Since we do not know the day or the hour when the One True Living Christ will return, it behooves us to stop our charades and learn how to effectively love one another as God has ordained. We must acknowledge that going into the church, preaching the Word, quoting scriptures, posting religious sayings, and dressing the part, is not of God when we do not operate in love. When we learn how to operate in love with God's children and produce the fruits of the spirit among each other, then and only then will we become less religiious and more spiritual, taking off religious cloaks and putting on the spirit of Christ to be more Christlike and exhibiting a Christian Life, instead of a religious spirit.


    1 Corinthians 13:1-7  The Message (MSG)


    The Way of Love


    13 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.


    2 If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all His mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.


    3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

    WasYeshua/Jesus Crucifixion Colonial Conquest Murder Not Salvation

    in Religion

    Saint Paul said not even the princes of earth knew about Jesus' birth or Pilate would not have killed him. But all bible believing people think that all prophesied widely and anounced the coming of the Messiah Christ,  and there is the wise men who came to King Herod for direction to find the baby. That was before Pilate's time, so how the scripture writes such strong contradiction and many other sayings which reject  the idea that no one knew. So that lie and the idea that the Romans who plundered Israel and later confessed to their sins against the world still sit as  the vicar of Christ church. Why people fail to see migrants of Africa turn prodigals evil doers invented business organizations by inventing God, world people sin and curse jesus the devil and salvation.
