The Bridge

Posted on

I’ve talked about this dream before and even wrote about it in a few different blog posts I’ve done.  I talk about it often because of all the dreams and nightmares I’ve ever had, this one really sunk into me hard.  I remember the year it happened; 1986.  I was just sixteen years old then and not really as awake of a person as I should have been as far as being spiritually enlightened, so to speak.

I did clue in that it was a prophetic message of some kind.  That much I did figure out, but still had many questions surrounding.  And I knew not one human being could figure it out, not even those who claim to be dream specialists.

The dream involved me being on a tall bridge, high above the ground (more like water) and it was connecting two sides of a city.  For some reason, Vancouver, British Columbia felt like it was the city I was in.  For me that’s weird in itself because I’ve never been there.  And, after that dream I had, I have zero intention of going there.

In the dream I am on this bridge and it’s dark out.  I fathomed it was evening, but there really wasn’t enough time to figure out if that was the case or not.  The dream started immediately with a violent shake that felt like a mammoth earthquake.  All I recall was hanging for dear life on that bridge as the world around me burst into absolute chaos.

I guess I must have closed my eyes while on this bridge because next thing I remember is seeing chaos and destruction on one side of this bridge and the exact same thing on the other.  The only thing that remained unharmed was the bridge itself.  However, laws of physics suggested based on the level of destruction that occurred and that the nightmare was far from over, the fires raging would sooner or later get to the bridge and I’d be done for.

So I wrestled with the decision to which side of this bridge should I run to.  Do I go east or west?  Neither option looked good as they both had so much chaos and destruction going on within them that staying on the bridge was actually safer at the time.  However, there was an urgency to pick a side and just go for it.

Without putting any further thought into it and opting to save my life by any means necessary, I decide to make a run for it towards one of the sides.  However, I do recall stopping just short of reaching the destination as the connection between the bridge I was standing on and the land I was going to run for broke was severed.

Looking back, running to the other side wasn’t an option either as the connection between the bridge and it was also broken.

Now, I do remember the bridge making movement, but it wasn’t as expected.  The lands this bridge was in between were the ones that gave way, not the bridge itself.  I finally figured this one out after years of thinking that bridge was a crossroads for me based on life decisions as to what I wanted from this particular world.

All this time I thought the bridge was telling me time was running out for me to make a choice between sides that had so much uncertainty to them.  But recently I’ve come to realize this wasn’t the case at all.  The bridge was my protection from those two sides of uncertainty.  Remember, in the nightmare those sides were extremely unsafe.  They were in states of chaos and everything was destroyed.  There were cries of despair as lives were being decimated and it was clear survival from all that was just not humanly possible.

I’ve come to realize the bridge was Yeshua (Jesus Christ), hence why I felt so safe on it despite me being clueless to what was really going on.  However, in this nightmare I did not trust Him enough to keep protecting me and I made the mistake of attempting to pick a side in some vain belief that it was the right thing to do.

As I look back, I recall the latter half of 2008 having me at a crossroads in life where I was reacquainting myself with Father by picking up the Holy Bible and do what I’ve never done before.  Read it from cover to cover.  It was already established even then I trusted no denominational church and no man-appointed priest.  I also came across a name and face I recall seeing back in the mid 1980’s that had a profound effect on me.  His name was Herbert R. Armstrong.

It was one of those late nights where I couldn’t sleep.  So, I decide to watch TV and came across The World Tomorrow and it was hosted by him.  It was the only episode I ever saw as I was fatigued and didn’t pay attention to the name of the show nor what hour it came on. I do remember looking for it again but never could find it.  Until 2008.  There was stuff he mentioned that really hit me hard and it was the best piece of ministry I ever knew.  To this day it still is, aside from the bible itself.

What’s uncanny is all that he warned about in that particular episode actually happened.  There’s still more yet to come.  In 2008, when I got the name, the programming and the name Church of God, I did some searching.  I tried to connect to the Worldwide Church of God, but they contradicted what Armstrong preached.  So I searched again and found Restored Church of God.  I then learned about Living Church of God and I started remembering the splinters even Armstrong mentioned.  At first I wasn’t too wary because I was excited about certain veils being lifted I never saw through before.  However, when I started to see certain attitudes and inconsistencies I pulled back.

It was if someone pulled me back.  Again, it’s the bridge feeling.  I felt like when I first read the bible I was on the bridge, searching for a side that seemed approachable enough despite it’s uncertainty.  I had a taste and realized that side is not survivable in it’s current state.  Too much chaos within the ranks and too many splinters that can fly out and take out my eyes and more.

It was even at a time where I favored Zionism, not realizing what it really meant.  For me, I assumed the Zionists were the Jews of the Holy Bible that God rescued from Exodus.  It did not sink in they could be the very counterfeits warned about.  I already knew something was off about the Roman Cathoilc Church and their splintered denominations, but didn’t think too much about the splinters of Judaism.

Again, picking a side with too many uncertainties.  That bridge felt like it jolted me away from fully committing to that side and thus sealing my fate in a manner that would have brought about my destruction.

I already knew the other side of the bridge was not an option.  That side lied to me my whole life.  Even with good intentions, the darkness that engulfs that side is so toxic that it keeps the victims clueless that they’re being systematically killed off.

The raging waters below I’ve come to learn is the symbol of the storm that’s erupting from the wars brewing from the two opposing sides.  The bridge that is situated high above it had me in a position where I could see everything.  However, my judgment was so clouded at the time that panic won out over faith.  It was because of that I nearly ran to my death by failing to believe in the bridge of protection I was standing on.  Those raging waters below is the fight between good and evil that dwells within each of us.

We each have choices to make.  How often are we told to pick a side, or choose your fate?  But, as I’ve taken it upon myself to read the bible the second time recently, I’ve learned there’s another choice we’re offered but this world doesn’t give that to you.  Only Father does via Yeshua (Jesus).
Save Lose.jpgIt then hit me that it wasn’t about a choice what to do with my life as a member of this world, but what I choose to do with my life spiritually.  It was about choosing life on this earth or life with Christ.  Staying on that bridge, even knowing it will let go and plunge into the rough waters below, was choosing to believe in Christ instead of the world I was trapped in that kept me distracted.

Those two sides represented neverending quarrells that had resulted in their inevitable destruction.  So distracted were they with their own pettiness they didn’t realize running to that bridge was their only way out of a fate that would otherwise have them burning forever in that eternal fire the bible talks about.

It’s not the first time I’ve had dreams of this nature, nor has it been the last, but it is the most profound that has really dug deep enough into my psyche where I can’t let it go.  And I won’t let myself let it go even if I could.  Something deep down tells me to remember that bridge and never make the attempt to step off it again.

Drawing Lines

People seem to think because I speak so harshly against the Islamic faith that I hate Muslims.  Nothing can be further from the truth.  Most Muslims, just like every other form of religion (Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Scientology, Atheism, etc.) don’t fully understand what it is they’re following.

I even speak harshly against various sects involving Christianity and Judaism as I’ve come to recognize that the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church isn’t at all what they appear and neither are the leaders of the Ashkenazi Jewish.  The masses are deceived, just as predicted in both the Holy Bible and the Torah.

Are you aware that the name Allah is Hebrew for curse?
Allah
If this doesn’t send an alarm bell to both those of Christian and Jewish faith systems then clearly they’re not as devoted to the true word of God/Yeshua as they claim.

Don’t just take the bible’s word for it.  How about the Quran itself?

But too many, despite learning the truth would rather keep themselves entertained by other means.  And that is because of….

sin-of-pride

Do you realize pride is what keeps you from reaching your true potential?  It keeps you drowning in a world you shouldn’t be in.

And pride also causes people to be blind to even the most obvious of truths.

I know what it’s like to have pride get in the way of better judgment.  It prevents you from seeing, makes you deaf and the walls it creates around you has you trapped like a prisoner.  That wall of pride, just like the walls of Jericho, can be taken down.  If necessary, one brick at a time until that wall is completely destroyed so you can cross over into the harsh truths of reality for what it is.  It’s not easy, but it is necessary.

This is what Yehua/God taught his people when they went up against all of the enemies when they were brought out of Egypt.  Who do you think most of those enemies were and why do you think he had such issues with them?  And no, it’s not due to vanity as the atheists would claim.

When you go over the pics do you now understand where this is coming from?  Do you get it yet?  When you reach this state you know there’s no turning back.  And really, when you think about it, do you even want to?  I know I don’t.

Asleep No More

Posted on

In the jungle, the mighty jungle the lion sleeps tonight…

NO MORE!

This lion is awake!  This lion is alert!  And this lion is on the prowl and pouncing with a mix of prayer and spiritual might on anything and everything I see warrants it.

Prior to reaching this state, I opted for a more slothful state of slumber as I was so focused on myself that I didn’t really pay too much attention to what was going on around me.  In my head, as long as it stayed out of my own little jungle, I’m good.  What can I do anyway?  I’m just one person.  What can one person do against the whole world?

But then when you think of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) reality sinks in that one person can indeed change the world as he was more than just the Son of God.  He was (still is) our Messiah, whether people choose to believe it or not.  All those who challenge his existence and who he really was has no grounds for reasonable argument to dismiss him as none of those living among us were there for the experience.  And, mankind’s timeline has repeatedly demonstrted truths get altered into stories that heavily cloud the events as they truly happened.

Even the bible itself has been manipulated.  Many believe the bible to be false and while some are correct with this conclusion, they fail to dig deeper that extends their argument beyond the perversions the Roman Catholic Church imposed upon who our Holy Father really is, who Jesus is and who we are supposed to be as a people.

The Vatican, which is the official headquarters that control Catholicism on a worldwide stage, seems to practice good Christian faith, but they are anything but this.  They practice idolatry, which is a huge no if you bother to pay attention to the ten commandments.  What’s worse is they teach others to do the same, who in turn blindly follow without daring to question.  And this is not the only falsehood they teach.  There’s so much more to them than meets the eye and none of it is good.

How many of you Christians are aware that the Sabbath was changed from Saturday to Sunday by Constantine?  I understand it was changed mainly to honor Jesus, which is cool, but if Jesus honored the Sabbath on Saturdays to honor Father, then what right do we have to change this?  How many of you Christians are aware that unless followers of Christ conformed to the new day of worship they were put to death?  Are you aware that when you go to Sunday service that this is not our Father’s appointed day, but one appointed by man?  Most of the common holidays celebrated today belong to man, not Father.

Wikipedia Sabbath
Who Changed the Sabbath?

Also, how many times has the Catholic leaders been caught in the news for crimes against humanity that know no age limits?  How much do we not know?  Are you aware just how much control the Vatican has on the world as we know it?  Do you have any idea how deep their fingers dip in the bloodied pools of deceit?  Odds are many of you don’t.  Do a thorough Google search on this and figure it out.

Of the few who do, fewer still are willing to speak up about it.  Already challenging everything we thought we knew about the Vatican and their Roman Catholic practices is difficult.  It’s even harder to convince the masses, who are still wearing veils of deceit over their eyes, to take the time to see it and figure it out for themselves.

I used to be one of those people.  Granted, I don’t think I ever cared for the Vatican nor their popes for as long as I can remember, but I did care a great deal about my religous beliefs.  I always believed in Father (as God) and in Yeshua (as Jesus), but never really saw the point of going to weekly church services to prove that fact.  I already knew they’d know our hearts and would even see clean through the b/s of those who don’t go to church because they want to, but do so out of obligation that somehow God would notice.

Oh yeah, he notices alright, but he knows the difference between those who follow some minister who prophets with his own belief system and those who’d rather hear the truth directly from the Father’s mouth.  I always have (and always will) put what is written in the Holy Bible above and beyond what any minister has to say.  And I’m certainly going to believe it over the congregation.  Most members within the congregation haven’t even read the bible from cover to cover with the same level of devotion they do with their weekly church attending practices.

To me, those people are lambs.  Innocent enough to follow a belief system that focuses on Father/Jesus, but not smart enough to realize they’re making the exact same mistakes Adam and Eve made back in Genesis.

I used to be one of those lambs until I realized I was merely another member of the sheep family being lead to slaughter by wolves who disguised themselves to be a shepherd.  It’s really quite scary when you first wake up to this fact and a part of you wants to just fall back to sleep as you try to convince yourself the nightmare isn’t real.  I’ve actually been able to do this a few times, but when you’re jolted awake enough times you realize falling back to sleep is no longer an option.

So, instead of trying to lull myself back to a state of slumber, I do some reading.  The news is so riddled with false information, which in turn causes people to deliver the news in the exact same manner had me realize turning to them for answers was not the right way to go.  Want to be right with Father and Jesus?  Go to the only truth that counts, namely the bible.  So I went there.

When I first really snapped out of it (2008) I realized the true day of worship fell on Saturdays, not Sundays.  I also realized holidays like Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s and many others were man-made twists to Father’s holidays.  When I realized all this I was livid that I (and the masses) had been lied to all this time.

So I started looking up Judaism (while reading the bible) and I discovered animosity towards Zionism.  At first I thought “this is the group to follow” and defended them because it seemed so many people were against them.  But then I realized that this is not the group to follow either.  They, just like the Roman Catholics, are one of the many counterfeits Father and Jesus warned about in that bible.  I think it was 2014 when I really clued in just how false the Zionist version of the Jews really was and it was 2015 I started to join the (much smaller) ranks of those who saw clean through their deception.

And you don’t even want to get me started on Islam and their Quran.  That, hands down, has become the most vile religious practice there is.  Dig around enough and once you make the connection between them and the very people Father instructed to decimate it is all those who follow this particular religion.  The very symbol associated with Islam has nothing to do with Father, but rather their moon god, Allah, which is merely another alias for Satan.  Even the Quran itself admits it.

I’ve since learned to stop following groups.  Even in the bible, you see entire congregations go astray that riles up the temper of Father.  Some will say what kind of god is he if he’s a jealous god.  Well, think about it from a parental point of view.  You have a child born to you whom you love with all your heart.  How much does it hurt when that love isn’t returned?  How much does it hurt when your child disobeys your every word and is so defiant against you that you can’t help but wonder if this child was switched at birth and you were given something that resembles more like demon spawn?  How does it feel when your child runs around saying “I hate my mother!  I hate my father!” or, “They’re not my parents.  They may have created me, but that’s it.  I want nothing to do with them.  I’d rather spend time with more worthy people, like that fun couple who are my best friend’s parents.  You know, the friend my parents want me to have nothing to do with.”

As a parent, would you not feel jealous that your child has favored someone other than yourself?  For those who don’t have children, how does it feel when you’ve done something that you know you deserve recognition for, but someone else (who is far less deserving) steals the spotlight from you instead?  It’s not a great feeling, so try to see it from Father’s point of view and maybe you won’t see him as such a jerk after all.

I know for me, when I first actually read the bible I was shocked at how violent it was.  It completely dismantled the “loving god” sugar coating quotes I got from the visits I had with the church (as a kid it was a mix of Lutheran and Pentecostal).  I started to understand why atheists came up with the kind of conclusions they did and I will admit, was starting to think maybe their viewpoints were more accurate than everyone elses’s.

However, there is a huge flaw to the way of thinking those atheists share.  As good of an argument they can come up with, nothing compares to solid truth.  The creation of all we know wasn’t strung together by random chance, nor by some sort of alien presence that had a slave race in mind.  The history of mankind was played out by bad choices people made by listening to the wrong voices.  We chose wrong since Genesis and we still choose wrong today.

Some will argue if God is so mighty then why use human beings to do his dirty work?  Why the killing?  Why the sacrifices?  Well, this is what mankind chose, not him.  When the choice to embrace the Tree of Knowledge was favored over the Tree of Life, what was chosen was suicide.  God already knew this, as did Satan (formerly known as Lucifer).  That is why Satan deceived Eve, who in turn led Adam to deception also.  And no, it wasn’t something as simple as biting into some apple.  If people haven’t figured out by now the bible is riddled with parables and metaphors by now they never will.

We chose to elevate ourselves (like yeast) to a level we weren’t ready for.  We still make that mistake to this very day.  Sadly, mankind never learns from their mistakes and this is why we continually repeat them.  We wanted to be like the gods, so this also means learning everything they know, including how to kill.  Satan, like that crazy uncle who promotes mindless antics in the so-called name of fun, knew mankind was all too eager to grow up fast so he handed to them exactly what they thought they wanted.  And we still make it too easy for him and his minions to keep us blindly entertained to this day.

Look over the entire timeline of mankind’s history books and it’s overloaded with violence.  Is this God’s doing?  Well, like any loving parent, the best way to teach a child to grow up is to let them learn from their own mistakes but at the same time don’t forget to discipline them.  So we allow Uncle Satan to mess us up because God knows if he interferes it’ll just make us that much more defiant with him.  However, he will come to our rescue (as proven in the past when you read Exodus to Revelations) if he sees us crying out for it to the point where his loving nature overtakes his feeling of rejection.  All parents who give a damn about their kid does this, even if they know somewhere down the road that kid is going to screw up yet again.

However, even a parent knows that sometimes the best way to discipline a child is to temporarily cut them off if that child refuses to get their act together despite all the rescues.  This is how it is between mankind and Father/Jesus.  This is like trying to get someone addicted to something that’s known to be destructive to stop when deep down that person isn’t ready (or willing) to do it.  Why waste time on those too stubborn to be saved when you can focus on the child(ren) that are crying out for it and are genuinely trying to make things right?  It doesn’t mean the stubborn child gets permanently ignored.  It just means those who are ready, willing and able to do right are going to get the attention they do deserve a bit quicker because Father knows by helping them out he’s just earned himself some assistants to focus on the stubborn child who continues to be so defiant.

Does God need assistance?  Not really, but God truly is the very definition of Father as he seems to focus on family and teamwork.  This is why, the people who chose “knowledge” over “life” are put to tasks that are really trying on the human spirit.  This is what they wanted, so this is what they get.  When God wishes to hand victory over to people whom have really won over his favor, he’s not doing it as an act of malice against the targets he has in mind.  He’s doing it as a cleansing program, much like the flood during Noah’s day.  Of those who choose to live wickedly where there’s zero regard for life and zero regard for what’s truly righteous, they are to be either re-educated or rooted out.  What better way to teach the people of Israel (real Israel – not the counterfeit we see today) this lesson than to get them to learn how to do this themselves?  They wanted to be like gods, so here’s their chance.

However, being god-like comes with responsibility.  Father tried to teach them this through Moses and Aaron during Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.  As often as difficult lessons were taught to them, it was equally often the people reverted back to acts of defiance against the very hand that brought them out of Egypt by acts of wonder that never should have been forgotten in the first place.

It’s easier to act immaturely than it is to exercise better judgment, so all too often people take what is the lazy route to living.  Again, it’s easier to stand back and yawn rather than plow forward and be responsible for every action you do.

And this is what keeps getting mankind into trouble.  Right from the very beginning mankind has been defiant with Father.  Even as they want to be more like him and his angels and the foreign gods they opt to worship, they always revert back to some form of stupidity that warrants rude awakenings and reminders they still have lots of growing up to do.

That’s why the wars.  That’s why the violence.  That’s why all the pain, death and suffering.  This is the way of life people have chosen.  And if you opt to disagree with me, take a good look at the most popular genre of entertainment that has existed since the dawn of time.

During the days of the Roman Empire they hosted games that glorified violence in every form imaginable.  Today we have various forms of boxing, wrestling and animal fights that rake in big money for mankind’s seemingly incurable need for violent entertainment.  The most popular movies and television shows feature violence as a means to make them more exciting for the audience who is more than happy to pay for this sort of thing.  And the news itself has learned how to manipulate scenes of violence into their programming to captivate the largest audience they possibly can for ratings.  Higher ratings means better windows of opportunity for commercials to swoop in and brainwash the masses into buying product they most likely don’t need.

This is who we think we are.  This is what we asked for, but while the majority still don’t see beyond the veils of deception that goes with it, the tiny few have become more aware.  The few realize this world we live in right now is a giant song and dance show thrown at us by Satan and all those who are in his camp.  Uncle Satan is entertaining the masses with everything he’s got and I have to admit it’s a brilliant puppet show.

However, all shows come to an end sooner or later.  Even long-running soap operas have fallen into obscurity.  All those involved will fade away into dust as the makup wears off.  At that point all the flaws are exposed and people see the true faces behind the masks that has kept them fooled for so long.

Once reality hits, it hits hard.  For me, just like I can map out scene for scene of a show before it even comes up, I am able to do the same with what’s going on in this world.  I do get surprised from time to time, but those occasions are become rarer each time I become more awake.

However, I never take even my own answers as gospel.  I’m not that insightful.  Only Father, through Jesus/Yeshua, has that ability and that’s the only truth I cling to as it’s the only one that really matters.

I recently did a blog where I posted a bunch of personally created memes that were of great inspiration to me based on my own experiences as I try to live my life the best I can.  So I’ve since developed a few more.  I actually live by these words and thought there’s no harm in sharing them.

Before people get the wrong idea, let me make it clear that what I’ve posted below is not so I can conjure up some new bible, or kid myself into thinking I’m worthy enough to join the ranks of Moses and other writers of both the Old Testament and New Testament.  What I’m doing here is sharing certain thoughts that have come to mind that has inspired me to speak up as I do, care like I do and even pray as I do.

I believe everybody has a purpose that’s been granted to them by our Father.  In some cases I simply call him Father.  Other times I say Father Jesus.  I say Father Jesus because as we sometimes call ministers “father” the only one truly deserving of such a title is the father of Christianity, who is Jesus Christ himself.

I fully don’t understand my purpose, but did conclude so far part of it is becoming something of a truth dealer in as many forms as I know how.  My brand of truths come from inspirations that only God can give me.  Then it’s up to me to figure out what I want to do with it.  I’ve come to realize those who hate me for it the most live lifestyles that are truly demonic as they favor the very things the Holy Bible instructs us to avoid.  Even those who claim to be Christian I’ve come to notice are anything but this, but good luck telling them that.  I don’t kid myself into thinking I know it all.  I don’t even know nearly as much as I feel I should but I suspect this is where that Tree of Life vs. Tree of Knowledge analogy comes in.  If clinging onto the Tree of Life means I don’t get to know all the answers I seek right away I am good with this.  It suggests God knows I’m not ready for all the truths yet and to be honest I don’t think I want  to know them right now.  One observation I’ve made is those who think they know all the answers are so corrupted with arrogance that they cannot see the err of their ways.  Even if they have the best of intentions, how they go about it is enough to prove otherwise.

Union Of Ignorance

Posted on Updated on

I can’t help but feel we live in a modern day Exodus where those who actually are doing something to fix all the wrongs that’s been done to the people go unappreciated instead of taking the time to realize the ultimate prize that awaits them in the end.

When God, through Moses, helped his Israel people escape the land of their oppressors and promised them something was awesome waiting at the end of their journey it was met with relief, hope and expectations.

However, the people seemed to expect this would come easy, like an overnight switch from dire straits to paradise.  Once they realized this was not the case as they encountered barren lands and waves of uncertainty, it didn’t take long before they started to whine.  The appreciation of being rescued was promptly replaced by contempt and Moses had to somehow serve as a bridge between the rational and the irrational.

It wasn’t easy for Moses.  Very little time passed before the very people he helped rescue from their oppressors started to behave in the same selfish manner as those whom they fled from.  Through his brother, Aaron, they had a golden calf sculpted as an idol they can pray to.  The calf was promptly destroyed and the people repented for the wrong done, but it didn’t take long before they reverted back to what is best described as selfish, impatient, childish behavior.

You see this more than in just Exodus.  Throughout the timeline of the bible you come across stories of people becoming so confused and so messed up that they honestly can’t tell the difference between right and wrong.  All hell breaks loose and of those who feel it as so cry out while the ignorant remain clueless as they plod along.

Sadly, of the few who dare to do good they get ridiculed for it.  Some were even tortured and put to death.  Jesus Christ is the most evident example of this as the ultimate Savior of mankind was viewed as if he were nothing more than vermin by those who couldn’t see (or accept) the truth for what it really was.

It’s no different today.  After years of people whining that things never change, finally someone comes along to make those changes happen.  He even warned it wouldn’t be easy, but it’d be necesary.

Already at this point, just as it has been throughout mankind’s history since the dawn of time, the fight of good against evil is a tedious, uphill battle.  All odds are typically stacked against the righteous, despite his/her flaws, are doing everything they can to do right.

What’s tragic is those who claim to be good people don’t see it as it happens.  It’s easier for them to remain blind to truths as the rest of the world around them incites hate, anger and wild stories with tongues convincing enough to keep the spiritually immature and dim-witted unaware.

I have very good family and friends that I can see are still running around with blinders on, despite my best attempts to snap them out of it.  It actually breaks my heart that those closest to me just don’t get it, nor do they seem to want to.

All this has me recalling a line that was quoted in a show called Babylon 5.  It was quoted by a character known as Lady Morella.

And how right she is!  Jesus was not appreciated during his living days, at least not at the level he deserved.  It was only after he died that reality sunk in he was put to death because he was right, not because he was in the wrong.  The evils saw to it that he was hated and misunderstood to such a degree they managed to convince the masses who were too clueless for their own good to see reality for what it really was at the time.

And it’s still not any different today.  Too many people blindly believe what’s thrown in front of them instead of separating themselves from the deception in an effort to figure out the truths on their own.

So as the great evils continue to deceive the people, they are delighted in the classic divide and conquer tactics that have always been proven successful since the dawn of time.  People are no smarter today than they were when a certain pair of characters from Genesis thought siding with the Tree of Knowledge over the Tree of Life would elevate them to greatness.

I see clean through most of it.  I’m not arrogant enough to think I see through all of it as I know that’s impossible right now.  Too much deception and too much division makes it rather difficult to discern who really has the answers among man and who doesn’t.  This is why I’ve come to realize the Holy Bible, Father and Jesus Christ are the only truths worth paying attention to and with due diligance.  Whether you care an ounce towards what is deemed as Christianity or not is quite frankly not my concern.  That’s between you, whatever you believe in and what fate has in store for you.  All I can do from my end is hope you figure it all out before it’s too late.

Idol Worship

Posted on

The easiest way to come about this is start with a bunch of pics to illustrate what idolatry means.

Despite the warnings, people seem to think worshipping objects and people is more important than putting the one and only that is most deserving of all.  Whatever name you give him, God created each of us, including those idols worshipped.  Although there is nothing wrong with having respect and perhaps a bit of admiration towards someone or something, but when it dominates your life to the point where it’s the first thing you think about when you wake each morning, what stays on your mind throughout most of the day and is the last thing on your mind before you drift to sleep there’s a problem.
