"You’ betta recognize…"Jesus spent a lot of time around sinners, and though, during the ministry that established the Gospel Eternal, he could not have sinned himself, in the Spirit nor flesh, I think it is important to remember that he knew what sin is and could have sinned, had he not a Work of Godly Importance to perform. What I’m saying is that it was as if G-d wished to have fellowship with sinful man more so than the righteous whom He knew had little need of His saving Power.
The kind of fellowship that is enjoyed by sinners, is one full of deep, rich, and everlasting meaning, everlasting inasmuch, as the repentant sinner walking in newness of life with Christ will always possess a memory of and affection for himself in what was a day of vanity and extremity of the limitations of grace immaculate within a believer.
Sin heightens the experience of G-d in a disciple, and though the experiment be a vain one and a trespass against self and G-d, it is an enjoyable rush to and in the Body of the Same. Such produces "addictions" in members that are extremely hard to overcome, and only more so given the vain contrivances of humanity to deal with them. All things are possible with G-d, but nary a one apart from Him. And when, a sinner who has become addicted to killing himself and his G-d within slowly with sin, attempts to overcome, humanity offers comforts and alternatives that only frustrate the Power of the Almighty to save and heal the afflicted member. It thwarts a man’s ability to even admit he’s a sinner and in need of repentance. Instead, feeding his pride with all manner of illusion and delusion, and boosting his confidence to strive in sin rather than turn away from it, and strive with Life and G-d. And of course, being a social entity, man needs companionship, so he must either join other sinners or lead others to sin with him to enjoy any comfort that fellowship in sin affords us. I’ve said in the past that our bonds fashioned in sinful living are often as strong as those we make in Life Proper. It has been a long time since many have lived Life on Life’s terms. We are a society of Death Culture and Madness, and we appreciate it this way and do not wish to change, but new life keeps creeping into our reality in the form of newborn children and Faithful men and women who have not given up on G-d and His Mighty Power and Promises.
Our Death-style we work and play amongst is what demands that we go to "war." And it’s none too interesting to note that the more wars America gets involved in, and orchestrates, the tighter the grip of "Rome" becomes on America. Very soon, we wont be able to call this nation America anymore, it’s already been cut up and divided among those with absolutely zero right to Her. The thing is, "they" hoodwink one another and anyone who does not have a firm grasp of G-d’s Authority and Ability to Deliver any and all willing to call upon Him in the day of distress. And to my everlasting horror, most would rather America become Egypt or Rome rather than make a firm stand in G-d in a Nation that was fought, died and resurrected for and by Him time and time again, through countless generations of Americans, who were granted rights and privileges under a Constitution framed by what was a Body of British Israelites, who had Faith in Christ and G-d, and though many sought to betray the Same and do what they do unto this day, a certain number of them, loved Christ and G-d and what is an Opportunity, nay more, an Obligation to secure a vast region of Land for the Welfare and safe keeping of a Living Body of Believers. Sin crept in, and it’s the same old story told over and over again- Needful things, envies, corruption of the flesh and mind, etc. and everyone panics, sells-out, points the finger, fights and strives against one another, and no one can come to Christ much less face each other and work together for Him who died for all.
Catholics want to be Catholic forever, but they failed to hear the one who promised them they could be Catholics for an Age. The Age would end.
1Cr 11:17 ¶ Now in this that I declare [unto you] I praise [you] not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.
For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
When ye come together therefore into one place, [this] is not to eat the Lord’s supper.
For in eating every one taketh before [other] his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise [you] not.
For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the [same] night in which he was betrayed took bread:
And when he had given thanks, he brake [it], and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
After the same manner also [he took] the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink [it], in remembrance of me.
For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.
And he came, and we denied him and crucified him. And he came again, and we did the same. And again…and again…and again…And Kingdom and world without end…
The same mad, cruel game they played with the L-RD in old testament times carried on in the new, only with far more promising and wondrous ages to recall and continue to build upon.
As the lives of the average believer wanes both in power and meaning, what have we left to live for, especially when we’ve been under a maddening grand delusion that offers nothing and nil for the same?
Aha! Service to the L-RD of Hosts!
Yes, our lives and dreams and works and schemes mean nothing and it’s tragic, but here is not only a solution and the only solution at that; but here offered is redemption, forgiveness, and an agreement to care for and cherish what truly mattered to each and every individual in America for ages, and the ability to save that meaning through cautious and caring service to the Living Body of Believers and the G-d in whom all may Trust. Who, though they may not grant any trains, planes, and automobiles, nor vacation homes and amusements parks. Can verily fill each and every man’s life with the heartfelt and brilliant guiding direction in which to strive and thrive, whether he or she remain in sin and tribulation or repents, comes clean, and becomes a member in earnest. That Freedom remains forever offered to each and every American, but the Promises and Rewards shall not be gifted to the unwilling and the malevolent creature of despair, which seeks no man’s good and will drag the entire nation, be they believing and devoted or not into the Pit from whence no man shall return.
My main concern is that our actions and behavior benefit our world and thus benefit us. I want us to heal. To bury age old animosities and move onward in good Faith. I don’t want us to be stuck in our own pride trying to prove what is obviously wrong to be right or to give it a place in our lives. I want to denounce the old and herald the new.
I have no concern for myself if what I choose to do causes others to stumble or fall. And I will not tolerate negative influences around those I care for. The generation being born now as well as this generation of youth have enough to deal with in the outside world without having to come home to a "broken" and tumultuous household. A house divided cannot stand.
I’m trying to make my own way "straight" and I’d like everyone in our country to do the same for their sake, if not for our own.
Ideally, I’d like them to have a world free of all influences beyond that of Judaic learning and living, so that they might enable G-d’s Reality, and if the choice is between deadly influences and those that honor life, I’d rather they have Life.
I realize that being "wrong" or "bad" is not always wrong or bad, and that sometimes it is necessary to do things and make choices that cannot be justified in that moment. I hope that we can all find forgiveness of and in ourselves for the things we have done to ourselves and one another. Healing and making right judgments is a lot more difficult and takes a lot more strength than any of us realized. If we could all be in agreement it would be easy as a walk in the park.
We must try to understand our "needs" and not try to make anything wrong seem "normal." Those of us who have "fallen" need help. Admitting that we have fallen allows those who have not to help us. "Tender Mercies."
We must protect the living rightly, and that means admitting to what is wrong and teaching them at our expense how and what to avoid so that they do not make the same mistakes. Even if I have become a slave to sin I wont make others slaves even if it brings me pleasure or even relief.
I hope to make this stand with all those about me and with me.
When, as it is at present, I am in debt to the government of the land, I find myself in the awkward position of having to compromise myself and make allowances and permissions that I would never make if I had not fallen into debt. I became so in ignorance and folly, not being awake in the L-rd at the time I accumulated my debt. So that when I became aware of it, I was already in the snare, and would have to do some finagling to free myself. It so happens, it has worked to both our benefit, myself and the governing body, but such should never have happened. I should have been made aware from the earliest age of my obligations and there very real consequences upon my Liberty and our freedoms and the Commonwealth of our society.
That is the catch and the wisdom in ALWAYS obeying G-d. For in the world, which Satan governs and is the law of and punisher of the wicked, the only Power and Authority which may deliver you from his hands and the hands of his oppressive henchmen, is G-d.
Satan works to frustrate G-d and is frustrated by Him. So of course he would want you to believe that G-d says obey him or the rulers he has set over the multitudes to collect his tributes and do his will, but it is not so. The thing is, G-d would have you obey in Him, satan rather than try to fight the same on satan’s terms. Being obedient to G-d binds satan and enables you to live and do G-d’s Will in satan’s world according to the structure satan has set up with his rulers. It’s a great deal of unnecessary work satan is willing to do rather than obey G-d, but the situation permits G-d to work the miraculous through his disciples in satan’s circus. Satan yet and always wishes to capture glory for it all, but he may never have part in any type of legitimate glory. Only works which are gory.
Fortunately for me, my argument and excuse for my debt is weightier than any lien placed against me for the same, that I might cancel said debt out without incurring too much in way of penalty. For G-d has made me worth more than I could ever afford or earn of myself.
In a land of cows with imaginary teats that never possessed any milk, never mind the inevitability of running dry, for anyone to accost and penalize for worldly debts and tributes, the Law abiding Believer in G-d, who actually tries to obey the law of the land, is a sure sign of outright criminal rule, and the end is here. Abominations rule the day. Hide yourselves, all is lost!
The freedom that Americans presently believe, or even historically imagined was here, never was and never will be. But, it was important to make the world believe so for a time, so that we might protect the Source of our Liberty for as long as is possible under Heaven, in a world full of souls cut off from G-d.
We have entered an uncomfortable situation, where men and women, fully grown into what they have believed is their "adult" life, must be treated like children, or beasts or worse, and must be told what to do and how to do so, because all are ignorant of what matters and protects their "freedom" and the Liberty found only in America like nowhere else on Earth because of the shrewd manipulation of the mass collective consciousness unto its unprofitable, criminally delusive worst by a handful or two of wealthy tyrants, who verily care more for the whole than any individual nation wide but who know all too well that man is a beast that wont be bridled by the kindest most caring of guides.
The Beast fully intends to go on, business as usual, with no real change in agenda, just evermore perversion and the spread of apostatical abomination worldwide, bought and paid for by a bankrupt nation that cares less about justice and value proper than it does about mercy and salvation.
All the more reason for Christians and Jews and believers of all walks of Life to unite and become unforgivingly, unabashedly vigilant in Our Faith, which means truly giving your mind and will to Christ, becoming a foreigner and pilgrim in a nation you’ve more than likely grown up as a citizen of. It’s going to mean hating your country, it’s way of pride, death and deception and caring for nothing but the lives and rights of fellow believers under G-d.
The understanding that we were born free must be purged from the Body. And we must now understand that we are slaves, with no common bond other than the notion that we shall all one day be free to be the imagined free nation we’ve dreamt of being someday when we are at last born anew in a Kingdom everlasting and are successful in bringing that Kingdom to earth. The Kingdom in which our minds and wills will be ours forever in a reality in which one may never desire to compromise the same nor threaten any other member’s, because it will be yours and yours alone, at last and forever. But here, on earth, it is time for every man to learn some old Negro spirituals to chant and sing as we all lay the burden of our crosses squarely upon our shoulders and as Paul said, go through many tribulations that we might at the last, enter into the Kingdom Eternal. Until then, it is well to think of yourself as vile and unworthy.
"Do not say: O God, I thank thee that we are better than our brethren; but rather say: O Lord, forgive my unworthiness, and remember my brethren in mercy—yea, acknowledge your unworthiness before God at all times. "
For the Journey, we have the Comforter with us, to aid us when we are feeling overwhelmed, and less than willing, able, and resilient, enabling us to overcome speedily when we’ve been betrayed and "f*cked proper" by our enemies, granting us an outlet for the venting of wrath, even if, at the last, it must be the very Saviour and Deliverer we’ve come to cherish, whom we must vent said wrath upon.
Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Jesus was a Lawful entity, the Law he lived seemed like lawlessness to many of his own people. G-d’s Law is for the entire Creation. Men’s laws, their very will to make laws is abominable and a lawless act of faithlessness.
Now for most men, that seems a bit extreme, if not downright absurd. They expect a little give and take, and the freedom to live their lives as they see fit. When enough of them agree to do so, they build towers of Babel together and imagine that they are doing what is best and right. And verily, the L-rd gifts man with many talents and abilities that make life and living a wonderful social affair, that of necessity, when populations grow, and members come together to live side by side in communities, etc. under G-d, must needs law and judgment extending from and amending G-d’s Laws just to make social gathering and interaction possible for men who wish to work together and enjoy one another’s company. For this the L-RD chose Judges in the Old Testament times, and we knew of kings and princes, and noblemen, etc. who agreed to judge the people and create order out of populace chaos, but from the very first, when the Power and Authority were upon Moses, the other men wanted to be like him, close to the L-RD and privileged because of it. Power is a drink that is desirable to one and all, and if you can purchase it, you may strive to become as rich as you possibly can to attain a State Omnipotent among men like unto that of the L-RD’s Omnipotence. But such is utterly weak and abominable if it come at the price of Liberty in the L-RD through the violence and wrath of man.
Pharaoh learned the hard way that he ought not to have tried to reign in this fashion. Caesar had greater success, probably because there was little left worth anything in a sold out culture of decadence and sensuality. Although, no doubt, there was yet satisfaction in the soldier’s ability to see that right could yet conquer wrong and good overcome evil. They were all working for man, not G-d. The Law of G-d held no place in Caesar’s heart I don’t believe, and he may have despised such- seeing Jesus, the Temple, and the Jews as an absurd waste of space. I have no doubt Caesar believed in G-d and may have believed in Jesus. But for a fallen man of war, who is more beastly than angelic in nature and thought, there really is no motivation to fear G-d unto rewards Spiritual. Especially when you are as gifted as Caesar must have been in affairs of this world and the manipulation of souls and men’s will, in a fighting arena where conquest and "might makes right" mean all if you hope to survive another day and earn your place in the history books…
Might does not make right, but might protecting the right makes might right.
But quite plainly, if Caesar wished to be Lawful, he would have been in tribute to Jesus, not that Jesus would ask for such nor accept such, nor want such, but that it would have been the right thing to do, if he wanted to build up and be a part of the Kingdom of G-d on Earth. As John states, he must increase and I must decrease. And Caesar would have been committed to enforcing the protection of the Temple, and G-d’s People not expecting a tribute or payment for it, but for the service to G-d, and he would have been concerned for molding the world and society he wished to reign over after G-d’s design and command.
But there could be no roads leading to Rome if he had decided to do so, and there would be no pomp and circumstance for the Roman people. There would be no social injustice nor inequality because the Romans would be no better than the Israelite, and all would be as Paul wished, with no man being better than any other, but all were esteemed as equals under G-d.
And as Jesus stated, the least among us would be the greatest, and the child would lead the congregation into the Kingdom of G-d on earth as it is in Heaven.
Which would be like unto Solomon’s Kingdom.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.
The number refers to Solomon. It was his allowance from the LORD.
2Ch 9:13 ¶ Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold;
It has to do with the Beast or Government of men, lording it over the fallen man of G-d or Son of Man.
In the trade off, Solomon was made king over the entire creation. So though the people (and this they did gladly to their everlasting shame) wore the mark of the Beast, they were admonished by their relationship with an official Godhead, whom they derisively considered king, feeling justified in their mock service to the same, and whom directed the government of men in a compromised office of leadership, in a divided nation, such as that which we have today in America. To the Beast’s everlasting credit of righteousness, this was a period in which that which is beneath strove mightily to serve that which is above. And a certain love/hate relationship was born during which Solomon wrote many and endlessly profound works to the everlasting glory of G-d, who blessed him with wisdom far and above all men who have ever lived.
1Ki 4:29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that [is] on the sea shore.
1Ki 10:23-24 So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom.
And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.
What makes a member of our Nation a beneficial and profitable member of the social structure and Commonwealth of the same?
Devotion to the G-d of Creation and intentionally ordering our lives after the Design and Way or Law of the Same.
Righteousness welcomes righteousness. Truth welcomes truth, etc.
Muslims, even former terrorists, might be useful in the America that must be born. In destroying and driving out the vile and the criminal in America. Purging evil and sanctifying the Land and the House of the L-RD; forming a Kingdom under Heaven and G-d in earnest rather than merely in word and deception.
This is a multifariously divided nation, which is actually believed to be a blessing rather than curse. They call it multicultural, but it’s a diversity born in delusion and vanity in service to the profane and unprofitable.
"America" is the problem, and what we perceive to be Muslim Terrorism is but a mirror of our own sins and way of death, lack of equity and honesty, even commonsense among our own members. Commonsense is what made America a Great Nation, and all have forsaken Her for cheaply produced nonsense. We’ve brought upon ourselves the dire need for an Elite Reign, which we were definitely suckered into. Such excuses none, when even in the same situation, all are unwilling to humbly and repentantly seek G-d.
3 Nephi 21:20-25 For it shall come to pass, saith the Father, that at that day whosoever will not repent and come unto my Beloved Son, them will I cut off from among my people, O house of Israel;
And I will execute vengeance and fury upon them, even as upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.
But if they will repent and hearken unto my words, and harden not their hearts, I will establish my church among them, and they shall come in unto the covenant and be numbered among this the remnant of Jacob, unto whom I have given this land for their inheritance;
And they shall assist my people, the remnant of Jacob, and also as many of the house of Israel as shall come, that they may build a city, which shall be called the New Jerusalem.
And then shall they assist my people that they may be gathered in, who are scattered upon all the face of the land, in unto the New Jerusalem.
And then shall the power of heaven come down among them; and I also will be in the midst.
There seems no way to restore that which was the "American Dream," and perhaps this is due, since our way of preserving and lengthening the days of the same has all but killed the heart of the innocent in us along with anything we might adore and cherish as holy and sacred. The only way to restore the "American Dream" is under Tyranny because the individual members have become beastly tyrants, one and all.
This too shall pass, but what we may have sacrificed and lost forever seems all too precious, like the Christ Himself. This all due to American decadence and perversion of the Abomination; the Lecher. It is no real secret or hidden knowledge that one and all are guilty of joining themselves to it. It must needs be revealed that the very Christ and all His Adam’s were duped into and are guilty of every abominable sensation and urge of the devil himself, and that the devil was seeking justification thereby.
But all he has succeeded in doing is handicapping the sons of G-d, whom G-d Himself will redeem and restore to His Service, even as broken and marred vessels.
Forgiveness comes to those who seek such, in sincere repentance, often at great personal cost.
I myself, was given to vile acts of absurd, adulterous, abominable lechery, in a panic stricken state of mind, during what was (and still is) a reign of mass criminality and perversity of the late 1990’s and what I now realize was an early millennial birthing process during which the whole may have been aborted. And though I could verily justify every act with a valid claim of delusional psychosis, nurtured in me from a very young age, I would much rather, pay the painful and embarrassing full price of admission and atonement for my sins and thereby redeem all those connected and guilty of the same or worse. .
Surely, the matter came to pass of G-d’s Will, and hopefully the consequence during my remaining days in the present Age will be no more than suffering the affects my sins have had on my body, mind and soul. My Redeeming Hope remaineth and ever liveth, residing well in the opportunity for the enlightened and profoundly wizened youth of this generation in Christ.
Alma 41:1-15 And now, my son, I have somewhat to say concerning the restoration of which has been spoken; for behold, some have wrested the scriptures, and have gone far astray because of this thing. And I perceive that thy mind has been worried also concerning this thing. But behold, I will explain it unto thee.
I say unto thee, my son, that the plan of restoration is requisite with the justice of God; for it is requisite that all things should be restored to their proper order. Behold, it is requisite and just, according to the power and resurrection of Christ, that the soul of man should be restored to its body, and that every part of the body should be restored to itself.
And it is requisite with the justice of God that men should be judged according to their works; and if their works were good in this life, and the desires of their hearts were good, that they should also, at the last day, be restored unto that which is good.
And if their works are evil they shall be restored unto them for evil. Therefore, all things shall be restored to their proper order, every thing to its natural frame—mortality raised to immortality, corruption to incorruption—raised to endless happiness to inherit the kingdom of God, or to endless misery to inherit the kingdom of the devil, the one on one hand, the other on the other—
The one raised to happiness according to his desires of happiness, or good according to his desires of good; and the other to evil according to his desires of evil; for as he has desired to do evil all the day long even so shall he have his reward of evil when the night cometh.
And so it is on the other hand. If he hath repented of his sins, and desired righteousness until the end of his days, even so he shall be rewarded unto righteousness.
These are they that are redeemed of the Lord; yea, these are they that are taken out, that are delivered from that endless night of darkness; and thus they stand or fall; for behold, they are their own judges, whether to do good or do evil.
Now, the decrees of God are unalterable; therefore, the way is prepared that whosoever will may walk therein and be saved.
And now behold, my son, do not risk one more offense against your God upon those points of doctrine, which ye have hitherto risked to commit sin.
Do not suppose, because it has been spoken concerning restoration, that ye shall be restored from sin to happiness. Behold, I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness.
And now, my son, all men that are in a state of nature, or I would say, in a carnal state, are in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity; they are without God in the world, and they have gone contrary to the nature of God; therefore, they are in a state contrary to the nature of happiness.
And now behold, is the meaning of the word restoration to take a thing of a natural state and place it in an unnatural state, or to place it in a state opposite to its nature?
O, my son, this is not the case; but the meaning of the word restoration is to bring back again evil for evil, or carnal for carnal, or devilish for devilish—good for that which is good; righteous for that which is righteous; just for that which is just; merciful for that which is merciful.
Therefore, my son, see that you are merciful unto your brethren; deal justly, judge righteously, and do good continually; and if ye do all these things then shall ye receive your reward; yea, ye shall have mercy restored unto you again; ye shall have justice restored unto you again; ye shall have a righteous judgment restored unto you again; and ye shall have good rewarded unto you again.
For that which ye do send out shall return unto you again, and be restored; therefore, the word restoration more fully condemneth the sinner, and justifieth him not at all.
The Truth is, nobody knew what the L-rd had or has planned. He surprises all.
But all those, in many different denominations and sects are going to be true to Him when they realize what’s what.
1Cr 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
G-d does not want us to leave the world, He loves the world, He just wants to keep us from the evil in Her.
Visions have been given to many Prophets and the LDS Church had been given the honor of further revelation and the task of putting things together, lots of tedious labor, and they erred marvelously more often than not.
Solomon cuts right through it all with the simplicity of Christ, saying just keep the commandments, that’s all that matters, and indeed that is all that matters for if you do, you love the L-rd and will be loved of Him.
But when and if they (Mormons) betray the L-rd, and they will, for they must, it will start to fall apart on them and they will fulfill the Scriptures of dwindling in unbelief and dissension Alma 47: 36. Not all, but some.
Everybody will know Him. Mormons have been secretive, which is to be condemned, and will ultimately look a little foolish.
Hbr 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
He’s taking away man’s ability to use Him deceitfully and treacherously and they hate Him for it, but men and women are falling over themselves trying to cover the Lord.
Luk 8:15-17 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep [it], and bring forth fruit with patience.
No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth [it] under a bed; but setteth [it] on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.
For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
What is important is that this time, this time we’re going through right now is to educate all denominations, sects, nations and peoples and strengthen what exists by bringing it together in the L-rd, not in superficial perfunctory way of the Beast of "humanity." But for real in the L-rd.
Thus helping to fulfill Ezekiel 37:15-28 & Jhn 10:16.
Mormons were under the delusion that "other sheep" were they specifically and solely and that other nations were I don’t know what? I can’t say what they thought. But people who come to Jesus are of all walks of life, denominations and sects.
There is no exclusivity save for the Jew, who have been hated by everyone.
But even the Jew is guilty of the same idiotic hatred and pride in fewer instances.
Basically, it’s Scripture fulfilled and man brought low, which ought to be bearable when the one He esteems is broken and foolish.
1Cr 1:27-29 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
That no flesh should glory in his presence.
And G-d has esteemed and chosen and lifted up the foolish things in sight of all. Because what does the righteous man nearly always fail in? Pride. When you overcome every sin in the law it is very hard not to fall victim of Pride.
The more the merrier in the L-rd. Only don’t be foolish fools. Accept correction and right yourselves.
Remember, Solomon said it twice for some reason he probably didn’t even realize at the time…
Pro 26:12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him.
Pro 29:20 Seest thou a man [that is] hasty in his words? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him.
The Mormons have been warned, and will heed the warning we hope for the sake of the whole.
Hsa 8:11-12 Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.
I have written to him the great things of my law, [but] they were counted as a strange thing.
Ancient hatreds and jealousies are hard to overcome, I believe that is what America exists for. Let every man become extremely puffed up in his pride, strength and stealth and then clothe him in an apron and put a new born baby in his paws and leave him to raise that child. Mark my words, with G-d, he’ll do a better job than the mothers of America, if only he can become that humble.
Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, [thou] that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under [her] wings, and ye would not!
What humility! Here is the Almighty comparing himself to a hen!
Can’t say the L-rd has not made everything interesting beyond compare and what makes it impossible to bear is that it is so simple yet the complexity of the design could not be imagined or mimicked by the greatest of men.
Here’s an interesting definition:
A Greek translation of the Hebrew Koheleth, a word meaning "one who convenes an assembly," sometimes rendered Preacher. The book of Ecclesiastes consists of reflections on some of the deepest problems of life, as they present themselves to the thoughtful observer. The epilogue (Eccl. 12: 9-14) sets forth the main conclusions at which the writer has arrived. The author describes himself as "son of David, king in Jerusalem" (Eccl. 1: 1).
The book of Ecclesiastes seems permeated with a pessimistic flavor, but must be read in the light of one of its key phrases: "under the sun" (Eccl. 1: 9), meaning "from a worldly point of view." The term vanity also needs clarification, since as used in Ecclesiastes it means transitory, or fleeting. Thus the Preacher laments that as things appear from the point of view of the world, everything is temporary and soon gone – nothing is permanent. It is in this light also that the reader must understand Eccl. 9: 5 and Eccl. 9: 10, which declare that the dead "know not any thing," and there is no knowledge "in the grave." These should not be construed as theological pronouncements on the condition of the soul after death; rather, they are observations by the Preacher about how things appear to men on the earth "under the sun." The most spiritual part of the book appears in chapters 11 and 12, where it is concluded that the only activity of lasting and permanent value comes from obedience to God’s commandments, since all things will be examined in the judgment that God will render on man.
Chew on that for a while.
