On talking with God Part I

Leave a comment

 

Have you need to doubt… found you

where you’ll worry more than faith

can carry you… find the time to pray,

my knowledge turns to sin if I ever

think my self sufficiency is always

enough… this the failure to take away,

preoccupied with things this life has

instead of the needs of others, as they 

do… the Spirit helps us and does say,

find Jesus is always there… to aid us in

prayer, teach us to talk to you Dear LORD,

from the heart and lead us as you may,

open up to all the troubles we will face,

know we can’t do it without the Spirit

involved… ask Him to cause and sway,

find the peace of renewed commitment and

openness with God you were meant to have…

it has been available to you each new day.

 

 

To God give the glory and honor first, for He desires us to say and feel the truth of it… and God wants to hear it from His own. Then make your petition… to speak of your needs, and make sure to include your confession of anything known to be wrong- to clear the air, your heart and your actions. The fact you could be tempted again means we could all fail (the strength to avoid temptations already comes from God). It is for this very reason we must find the courage to forgive those that might have wronged you (perceived or not) and love, God’s love, is more than sufficient for us to share with everyone- can we not get more?

Just remember how it is… and will continue to be in Iran, as hardliners gain in the power they have, and women dancing in public (even at eight years old) is considered an “immoral” act. Below is a very brief abstract from the link above.

 

In Iran, sharia law dictates that grown women – an age that is set at nine years old – are forbidden to dance in front of anyone but their husbands.

 

According to the UN, only 5 percent of cases involving violence against women actually go to court. See here an article on what is being called “Women’s Rights” or “Domestic Violence” and not “Human Rights” or something more appropriate and less biased to begin with.

 

This is a new high in how low, depravity, we have fallen already. Remember this? Thanks for supporting the human struggle to exist at all!

 

Planned Parenthood calls a human baby a fetus (to be soon aborted/snuffed) or just to be tissue and sounds so de-humanizing. What about the “human Rights” of the unborn… or soon to be born [the Jewish understanding is “Human life” under construction]? So, you can clearly see if life is valued: children would be cherished and not treated as property, defended and not exploited, and lastly… beheld as the blessing they are- gifts of God.

 

So easily exploited are children… without normal protections in place. Then again, it does come down to what is understood as normal here!

 

 

slavery is still alive… and we just had Juneteenth, supporting the end of slavery in Texas, USA.

 

Without God… you will see more and more questionable activity or actions taken against people for their beliefs. The list of people to be persecuted will continue to grow until everyone is forced to submit, and at that point “free will” becomes a thing of the past. The kingdom of God is not subject to: the dictates or beliefs of man, an expiration date… it will not end, and “LOVE” will last throughout eternity.

 

Imagine looking at nine year olds for marriage… this is not what God calls normal behavior.

 

P.S., As a Christian… I’m to love my enemy also- a very high standard to live with and for! This doesn’t mean I have to like the actions someone takes but I do have to love them. This is what God has told us to do… unless you do not have the same God… the same belief… or look at what love means to a Christian believer. If your God is not the God of love then we should be able to tell the differences; which will stand out and be apart from love… to be (separated) for all eternity. The spirit lives on and you will either be with God (forever) or without Him!

The sky is falling… or is it?

Net neutrality is the new “tar-baby” to kick at but it comes down to: how it is perceived, what each individual is advocating and promoting… either for or against, and expectations based on beliefs or experiences of the past. It would be a pretty broad brush to paint one into a corner over if net neutrality is not maintained, and when any change would be seen as something unwelcome or not desired. What I don’t understand is how one party can be for freedom of speech but not be bothered unless it becomes bothersome to its: perspective, ideology and overt manner (the squeaky wheel or noisiest child syndrome). What main-stream liberals (I use the term loosely) need to realize is what they offer with their support and voice to… for a cause that would deny them the right to speak out! Imagine that!

From the ever quaking CNN techseen here.

Is this “old hat” or just the same old “duck and dodge” of the past… and seen here?

Even “Wired” did a piece on it back in 2012 and an old one for me too.

The image came from this article here (Fortune.com)… seen below.

 

WASHINGTON, DC – FEBRUARY 04: A sign that reads “Protect Net Neutrality& Reclassify Title II is on display during a news conference on Capitol Hill, February 4. 2015 in Washington, DC. Senate Democrats are calling on the Federal Communications Commission to reclassify the transmission component of broadband Internet access as a telecommunications service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. to prevent broadband providers from creating Internet fast lanes for those who can pay and enforce open internet protections.

What we really got… a little common sense will go a long way, won’t it?

 

Net neutrality breakdown

Still think neutrality is like transparency too, right?

Spoken to a mind like the Bastille

Closed off, isolated and indifferent to where or how

the epicurean delights ensnare the appetites of now…

thrown caution to the winds of change if they are for

the sake of change itself, no dredging for the scow.

No, this time we need to play openly, American or

Communist… to pray openly, to God or take a knee,

the offensiveness is to call all the same and to think

I see nothing wrong with that, for you as it’s for me!

Did you even consider God in this at all… it will not

be left up to us to decide… in a matter of the Spiritual

realm, something we know nothing about unless it

comes by way of the word- an eternity and survival,

but as hard as the caissons built upon… the fortress

though yet remote and visited, named, data venia,

in Latin… with due respect, used before disagreeing

with someone… with the permanence of using henna,

this is the time to make historic the commonness we

share in the human family to be the warmth of fire

but not to say one should be harmed if they will not

serve the same argument or message, who the Liar?

 

The Bastille, an armory and prison in Paris, was a symbol to the people of France representing years of abuse by the monarchy. The commoners stormed and dismantled the Bastille looking for gunpowder and to free political prisoners – they killed the commander and freed the prisoners. This demonstration of empowerment was a wake-up call to Louis XVI and posed a challenge to the existence of the monarchy. This action became the flashpoint of the Revolution.

 

 

The question begs to be asked,”Can I know contentment and follow Jesus?” The clear answer is Yes!

 [Below is from this source and resourced at the bottom of the page under “Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible.”]

content–The Greek, literally expresses “independent of others, and having sufficiency in one’s self.” But Christianity has raised the term above the haughty self-sufficiency of the heathen Stoic to the contentment of the Christian, whose sufficiency is not in self, but in God ( 2 Corinthians 3:5 , 1 Timothy 6:6 1 Timothy 6:8 , Hebrews 13:5 ; compare Jeremiah 2:36 , 45:5 ).

Latin… 

esse quam videri: to be, rather than to seem 

_______

ex silencio: In general, the claim that the absence of something demonstrates the proof of a proposition. Also an argument based on the assumption that someone’s silence on a matter suggests (“proves” when a logical fallacy) that person’s ignorance of the matter or their inability to counter argue validly.

DISCLAIMER: With reference to henna given in the body of work, please know there can be complications from henna if there is  a Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. See this through the hyper-link here.

We are drawing nearer the day, finding to include God in our service to God is to find: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and faithfulness… and our love For Him (for He alone is worthy of our praise) as open as the Book we learn from. From hearers of the word to doers of the word- beyond childish to mature in our belief.

 

 

Isaiah 17:7 KJV

https://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/17-7.html

7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.

 

Philippians 4:11 KJV

https://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/philippians/4-11.html

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

 

Colossians 3:25 KJV

https://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/colossians/3-25.html

25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

The fine grained nature of perception

Schizophrenia was not the intended goal,

the traits of it so unbecoming of any party

if they are all that remain, a residual, when:

whining is preferable or even flaunted hardy,

notion to presuppose tea leaves can and

will indeed tell us the future… efforts dodgy

and so Clinton, where expectation and a given

reality shred, the chasm of morals too stodgy,

as even with DACA when the desired look

was the appearance of concern, conditional

to support given as the rubber yields to the

Street and no skid-marks to change volitional,

the rebellious nature speaks more to ego than

not and to less safety or freedom than we had…

to a space of time nearer the conclusion of the 

mundane or glory of eternity to be thought bad,

this gains us the ground on which to fly the

banners of belief, the childish tantrums to much…

to much to bear and witness, either true of the 

character or no where close to being a mensch.

 

 

schizophrenia… a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.

(in general use) a mentality or approach characterized by inconsistent or contradictory elements.

[Definition above comes from the Apple Dictionary]

 

Ever heard of… The conceptual constraint? 

[The abstract below is found at the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, the link here and under #2.]

But the conceptual constraint does not depend upon adopting any particular theory of content. Its plausibility stems, rather, from the conjunction of two thoughts.

  1. In specifying what a thinker believes, what a perceiver perceives or what a speaker is saying by uttering a certain sentence in a particular context one has to be as faithful as possible to how that thinker, perceiver or speaker apprehends the world.
  1. How a thinker, perceiver or speaker apprehends the world in having beliefs about it, perceiving it or speaking about it is a function of the concepts he possesses.

When thought, emotion or behavior of mankind are left in tatters, and no relationship exists between them to perceive, but the psychology of their actions is politicized or considered worthy of worship- is when society will lose its perspectival on the meaning of personal choice or to gauge actions of God or of man himself.

This is not the time to be double-minded… split-minded or found wrong- in light of what God has told us in “The Word of God”- God will even save you from yourself. If the reflection in the mirror becomes the only object you choose to satisfy, thus distorting the phenomenon, you have already lost the viewpoint of God being first in everything you’d do.

Here is another public viewpoint on Conceptual constraints, by David Moshman, University of Nebraska- Lincoln, December 2001,”Conceptual constraints on thinking about genocide”.

 

Romans 1:16 KJV

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

 

Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.

 

Nothing can be stranger than fiction but the truth!

Between the rising sun and hardheartedness

Yes… Vets have feelings too and often beliefs which run deep!

 

When Veterans come out to protest what President Trump said, on Memorial Day, May 28th, 2018… and, rest assured, some will find anything he does worth a protest. Yes, He is full of his accomplishments but I’ve seen him do more to turn this country back around from the way things were done before him. For this… and this Veteran’s heart, my hat goes off to him and all he would like to do to recoup American losses- even the recent atrocities of the last ten years.

Would you want to deprive American families of our legacy… Memorials shut down in DC.

Allies denied our support… just waiting for an American President to side with Israel again.

The Russian-Collusion thing, as the Russian lawyer was allowed in by Loretta Lynches DOJ VISA… and the small players gained ground and flung it.

 

If anything we should honor, respect and acknowledge those that went before us- so we can enjoy the freedom we have in a manner we choose.

 

I’m sure many of these same Vets take as much offense to: a removal of the final words of the oath of fidelity ( “… so help me God”) by the Air Force, an about face… is to place a question on a historic US military practice observed and acted on for many years or to a sentiment only those in the military might fully understand… about being a traitor to what we should stand for, as in the case of Jane Fonda. Jane went Communist, and I look upon the American landscape (today) to see the growing pains of an old enemy resurfacing, don’t you?

 

Another traitor is in the picture… you come to your own conclusion!

The pawns will only move as directed

“Those that give up some freedom for some

security deserve neither.”

Ben Franklin

 

How hard is it to conceive one party

could be used, to think they were superior

to the other, and made to believe they 

were, in fact and deed, the only one right…

and led to such conclusion… to add to the

confusion, behind their backs… those that

led them followed a different path than

the followers saw within the other

party too, as both were told one thing

but the leaders did plan for the undoing

of party lines… both seen as the same,

simply the people, as a whole, to manipulate…

complete disregard for the stated ideals,

answering to no one and dragging them

down… terror is the nature of the game,

still… one party will be used, after their

man lost, as the agitators… the pent up

resentment is then the tool to hone, to

sharpen and be used as the seething hate

can be directed… the party will then be

subjected to the irrational directives

given them, still thinking they are right…

to be used as the reason to seal our fate.

 

 

Deuteronomy 12:8 Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.

 

Judges 17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

 

1 Corinthians 2:12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.

 

A Sermon, Sermon XXIX, The Importance Of The Inquiry, How Shall Man Be Just With God?

 

[Below comes by an abstract, taken from this source.]

There can be no real prosperity or progress in a nation, a home, or a soul, unless there be peace. Jesus Christ came to restore peace on earth, and peace in the soul, by restoring righteousness. Because He is Melchizedek, King of Righteousness, He reigns as King of Salem, King of Peace (Heb 7:2). He so fulfills the promise the prophets held out: “A King shall reign in righteousness; and the work of righteousness shall be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever” (Isa 32:1, 17).

 

Joshua 9:25 And now, behold, we are in thine hand: as it seemeth good and right unto thee to do unto us, do.

 

Is it better to err with God or to err without God?

Master the media and it’s own medium
on the chords to impact your play…
throw in the lights of distraction, as they
appeal, then be mindful of what you say,
this is the expected norm of normality…
the attraction Du jour, the comfortable way,
for though the road has many lanes, in
America, views affect the effects of sway,
so sail with your sails full of the winds of
ages past, or the tempest of this our day,
strike no wrong against another so deemed
different when belief the same too we’d pray,
the bounty one has given us leaves no room
to think it proper to deny or cause disarray,
let there be no drama, surety of sharing is
felt when listening to each other’s dismay!

 

Do they sound like millennials here… and know they have an audience in China already. This is FYKE, an American band, socially and culturally inspired.

 

 

When it comes to displeasure is when something has been taken personally… even if it was never intended to be a source of confusion, aimed at anyone (a generalized statement), or there is something seen to bother one’s heart to point of hurt! Modern society would say,”It wasn’t directed at you but if you want to own it… then lace them boots up and wear’em, and don’t think twice about the outcome.”

 

This one is called: Favorite Mistake.

 

 

When silence is given by one to another there is the assumption one is right… but when it is offered as an explanation… the assumption dries up like autumn leaves.
