Paul’s Gentile Saints and David’s Hebrew Sages as One
“They without us cannot be made perfect.”
Lamanites are akin to Ishmael’s Rebels, Wild Olive Tree…Necessary to undo the treachery of Paul/Saul who was blocking up the kingdom perhaps accidentally by adhering to Catholic Idolatry. Ishmael struck at the roots of Catholicism by poisoning the devil, the Father of the Mother of Abominations. Best humored if not ordained to the work of the L-RD outside the camp,
To sit as judge, even of Israel, who is his half brother.
Lot’s powerful intrigue had to be undone also. Lot had grown so seditious of HaShem’s Hosts, he sought power through unified idols; dealing treacherously with Israel and the manifest sons of G-d, even his own in America; though such may not have been his intent from the beginning- Absolute Power corrupts absolutely.
HaShem stuck by and with His chosen beset on all sides by treason and falsehood, because they or he would eventually see through the maze of idol confusion by rediscovering their roots in Torah and thirsting and hungering for kingdom righteousness, while Lot just accrued interest from Power gained through misrepresentation and theft; falsehood and betrayal of all comers and takers within his reach, and often beyond his reach. Seeking more and more power through plays treacherous but fearing lest he should go too far and over-step a safe boundary or what he considered safe, as long as he kept up his lie, and it was not exactly a lie so much as a half truth or hand offered in vain to the nations who might prosper him at the cost of their own legitimacy before HaShem of Hosts, whose anger would be aroused by their infidelity and treason, if not to him at least to their own kind, whom He also created for a purpose and reason in Him, but whom when they get lost in themselves and their idolatry, can’t see their way through to Him who stands ready to save any that call upon His name or seek Him with all their heart, mind and strength.
Eventually because of the grossness of his own ego and brilliant mind , Lot did overstep his boundaries and brought swift recompense upon himself and his allies; became guilty of a very grievous payback sin which he took entirely too far and could not afford the cost of without further treachery and betrayal. But making enemies of friends is the anti-Solomon way or the Anti-Christ way.
Too many ignorant, innocent people were harmed; most of whom hardly knew the difference because of their ignorance, counting themselves wise and prospered because of Lot’s flattery and words which were as drawn swords but came as speech smoother than butter and sweet as honey. Lot’s a friend you don’t want to have;
the very reason for the saying- “With friends like you, who needs enemies.”
You sell enough of your own brethren up the river for a price and you’ll find your head will soon be worth more than your bank account may have grown fat from your betrayals.
Yet, who should really be surprised as such has been the way of the world since ancient biblical times…
And on the other hand you have men like Cain building cities and fortunes on murder and mayhem as Master Mahan.
Ironically enough, this wickedness birthed virtue of a sort in Edom, who found that even if he hated Israel with an undying hatred and everlasting enmity-Israel would never seek vengeance or hold a grudge against him, proved by the way in which he returned home with gifts, real fear, and respect or honest admiration for Edom, something Lot has never expressed for anyone but himself; selfish, egotistic and self seeking to the core. So that Lot naturally combined with those like himself, who are full of deception and subtlety; all lovers of themselves and their art, which is akin to witchcraft and soothsaying, familiar spirit work, etc.
But when he became one of the kings of it, a pile of shit, to keep warm on his dunghill during idolatry’s long winter season, he found the journey one too long to endure even if he became wealthy beyond his dreams.
He has a spirit that still longs for nobility and perhaps fair play but fakes the same nobility so well, he falls into believing in the play he stars in and forgets all about the fact that he is lying to himself, his adversary, friend and G-d.
But it is written, both deceived and deceiver belongs to Him; and the L-RD frowns mightily on dishonesty and flattery.
To his merit, he is honestly stung by overt acts of wickedness and debauchery but has been privy and knowledgeable about so much of the same for so long it hardly phases him anymore and perhaps knowing his enemy, plays the same with little or no mercy, having resided in Sodom for as long as memory can tell, it’s as natural as learning Greek; though I would not call him heartless, just desperately concerned for number one, his own survival; little moved by honest repentance which only stirs remembrance of his own self when he was a more honest person but whom he now despises as one who was played by his own enemies at times and time again.
He knows when he’s wrong and is aware of the sin he commits but he sees no other way of dealing with life then unfairly as it has dealt with him; born under a bad sign, he’ll keep bad company till the day he dies.
But he is a patient man in iniquity and his soul is particularly moved by his Hebrew roots, stung by his own betrayal of the same in the name of the game.
Therefore, seeking Kingdom establishment is most especially important for wayward sons such as this who might enjoy a renewal of chance or clean slate to play with that he might make work to his own merit and atonement and kingdom benefit, by learning to live more selflessly than he has been forced to live otherwise in the past and perhaps present, and perhaps that’s an all inclusive truth, that without the Kingdom no man may do that which is right and fair in the sight of G-d and man. For no one can really seek reconciliation and atonement outside of a Kingdom proper. And that time to come will make all loss and grieving as a filthy garment one may exchange for a new, made clean in the blood of the Everlasting Covenant between G-d and man and man.
Lot before his own personal fall may have been likened to a perfect student of Torah who sought to be the best for the sake of the same and Kingdom; but as soon as he grew proud, and puffed up, he fell from grace and entered the paths of the lecher and the scoundrel, and from then on being without mercy or compassion.
Desiring G-d’s chosen’s share of the country but without possessing G-d’s blessing and prudence for maintaining a blessing so grand; only Abraham’s generosity and better judgment saving him from himself time and again, but never coming to the truth in Christ to become satisfied with his own Lot in life. I have no doubt he came by the name for the same reason. He is the rambling, gambling man.
Desiring Gad’s portion was his greatest mistake and he should have been satisfied with his own lot in life, but what man is or there be few that are or may be.
Fortunately for him, his helpmate, Edom’s wife is as cunning and ruthless as any adversary may be; and so, grasping her skirts, was pulled through the mire and became one of the kings of the formerly mentioned pile of shit.
It is funny that he would bond with such a lowly kinsmen and lover of the wages of iniquity as Shechem-but Shechem is as strange as he in his love of self and admiration of Israel hidden and ultimately subordinate to his joy found in the suffering of others- a truly sadistic soul without heart that may be touched with a long dead yet longing for renewal of princely advantage and a mad love of Kingdom games and sport.
As dangerous as any adversary Israel may have, yet treats all equally bad and plays to win no matter what the cost personal or otherwise. These two should have walked down the isle together long ago if only gay marriage had been legal in ancient bible times!
Lot always arrives as a friend but proves an enemy- who treats one and all as an opponent in a twisted game for mastery in idle works- he will just as soon give you a fair shake as turn around and stab you in the back gleefully wondering at his own cunning or lack thereof. He is a product of his environment and does not necessarily mean anyone harm – he just takes whatever advantage he may and considers such fair play; buyer be warned, all sales final kind of attitude. If he borrowed your ass, he would send it back with an army of Troy soldiers in its belly, and they would there after be your dependents and his joke/yoke is on you.
Which again, as I say is the impetus for the one and only virtue in Edom who considers Lot more perverse than HaSatan, which is funny because Edom far exceeds all in perversity of soul; he actually believes in idols and there worth and not in HaShem of Hosts, nor is he the least impressed by the Torah or Judaism, considering the same trickery of Jewry, even though he knows better. He is convinced he is right and is the better man in all situations and circumstances whether he has zil and nil concern for the Kingdom of G-d or not; which makes sense given his blessing is of the world and that in its purity, which he gets lost in and revels in and at worst suffers intensely for the error of placing faith in the creation and none in Creator, but all will find doing so is not always as much madness as it is a hidden wisdom much coveted by those initiated and mastered by the same.
It’s Edom’s heart and befuddled understanding that are admirable- but otherwise he’s just boastful wickedness, whose heart is home to seven demons all well fed and thriving. All of these sons are more like women in their weakness than like unto men of G-d, whose strength may be supported by a good wife but who are usually better off single, unmarried, chaste and more like angels than otherwise and best to keep a grand distance from any of the wives of the above mentioned legionaries of time and space…
The heart and mind of man are deep waters, etc.
And so, what we’re dealing with in latter-day America are a lot or grossly hardened individuals all striving to be known for their own talent or gift, and to their merit, I might say it is not easy for anyone to make the same profitable without corrupting the gift’s purity and the talent’s excellence with worldliness; and likewise it is not easy for a man to atone for sins that are unforgivable but done in rashness of heart, seeing no other way out of a bad situation, back to the wall, between a rock and a hard place.
Playing with the Queen of Hearts or idols, only the Joker has much success and that by pure accident or fate as it may be…
It’s kind of bizarre as hardly anyone honestly relates to anyone else anymore; there is no meeting point, no faith in anything beyond the day’s adventure- if that. Curmudgeons fight tooth and nail just to gain property that they can’t enjoy because they can’t trust anyone to share it with. Have to bargain with devils even to find employment, which however altruistically oriented is not but criminal activity run amok and rewarded with things that don’t really reward but only further encumber and complicate a life void of any real meaning and significance.
Washington and the Government are also without virtue of constitutional direction and discretion; void of mission and meaning. Foreign investment is destroying what little meaning a history surprisingly rich for its troubles and life has to offer a United Republic.
Democracy is a farce of bestiality and abomination poisoning the body political with vile ideas for a future identity crisis worse than the one which we’ve been mired in for generations of lazy, idolatrous confusion of face and absence of mind.
There is no solution to the tragedy we’ve become simply because everyone denies we are living through the worst depression America has ever endured.
Selfishness has taken away pleasure in privilege and right. And selflessness has become impossible and dangerous and will soon be outlawed, along with charity, goodwill, fair trade, etc.
The Beast is frightened and the devil knows his time is short and so virtue, charm, beauty, admirable character and valiant consideration for the security of a free people will slowly diminish and die out and be replaced with want inexorable and without remedy. We The People will slowly dissolve into a memory unwanted and unwelcome in our own land, blamed for all the trouble we the are no people are having in getting what we want and believe we deserve; because vanity is the root of all want and egotism the root of all disunity and unfairness in providential care.
For the faithful there is still a reward of course and it shall be well with the righteous but without Unity in the Spirit of our Nation it will be hard to help people who err and are led astray by the wiles of the evil one, being led astray by empty promises unto cruel ends and fates perilous.
The Unity enjoyed by the abominable and the unclean is not the sort that possesses mercy, gentleness, loving kindness and consideration.
They don’t like infants except as menu items and don’t appreciate any weakness human. Being animals; they don’t reason as men much less as gods but have the sense to do what they are told and if rewarded they are confused into thinking they are something they are not and this delusion works upon or throughout the entire creature an type of evil pride even for the stupidest and most grunt like work performed and animals unworthy of consideration otherwise lift up their heads and unto boasting commit blasphemous follies of the worst sort but because their behavior is considered normal and acceptable for them it overrules and overruns the space and heritage of the righteous; who for lack of representation are trodden under hooves of majority ruling class. Cruel and dumb is normal for animals- even considered fun and good sport, the better at which the greater you become, and consumption equals progress; a full belly- a successful day.
Every struggle makes sense to the grave.
But the virtue of a quiet and gentle, pious spirit is swallowed up in the general mass mayhem frenzy and commotion of a law and statute ordered slaughter of innocents and patient consideration for the Holy Spirit’s workings or inspired genius is given no place to take root and grow and thrive, be or succeed. In fact, patience being the only virtue fallen man has ever possessed is for the greater part no longer tolerated in our society.
Though the underworld counted on it and it alone for the moment to come when it might strike at the foundations of the righteous and destroy altogether what the faith of our fathers has quietly built up and enjoyed for generations of heart and soul invested in the American Dream.
Destroyed overnight by a nightmare come to pass and to stay and roost and devour all as have left the safe pastures of the faithful and the righteous and lay claim to all they once called homeland. And all this come to pass while Operation Homeland Security was supposedly at work countering the inevitable affects of just such a threat and calamity.
Our nation’s spiteful misuse of military force has brought home the same- a legion without a home assuming yours its own by virtue of greater sacrifice and of course it has more right to claim than do we the people who were wasting our time and effortless lives sucking ass and lawlessly taking every advantage we could against a nation at sleep or dreaming, while those of more concrete reasoning were paving a way to roam(Rome), where all roads lead and all the idols have a home but the faithful and the godly have no rights at all being considered as dross by their brethren.
Don’t despair! G-d is always right on time!
And it came to pass that they did go forth, and began to preach the word of God unto the people, entering into their synagogues, and into their houses; yea, and even they did preach the word in their streets. And it came to pass that after much labor among them, they began to have success among the poor class of people; for behold, they were cast out of the synagogues because of the coarseness of their apparel— Therefore they were not permitted to enter into their synagogues to worship God, being esteemed as filthiness; therefore they were poor; yea, they were esteemed by their brethren as dross; therefore they were poor as to things of the world; and also they were poor in heart. Now, as Alma was teaching and speaking unto the people upon the hill Onidah, there came a great multitude unto him, who were those of whom we have been speaking, of whom were poor in heart, because of their poverty as to the things of the world. And they came unto Alma; and the one who was the foremost among them said unto him: Behold, what shall these my brethren do, for they are despised of all men because of their poverty, yea, and more especially by our priests; for they have cast us out of our synagogues which we have labored abundantly to build with our own hands; and they have cast us out because of our exceeding poverty; and we have no place to worship our God; and behold, what shall we do? And now when Alma heard this, he turned him about, his face immediately towards him, and he beheld with great joy; for he beheld that their afflictions had truly humbled them, and that they were in a preparation to hear the word. Therefore he did say no more to the other multitude; but he stretched forth his hand, and cried unto those whom he beheld, who were truly penitent, and said unto them: I behold that ye are lowly in heart; and if so, blessed are ye. Behold thy brother hath said, What shall we do?—for we are cast out of our synagogues, that we cannot worship our God. Behold I say unto you, do ye suppose that ye cannot worship God save it be in your synagogues only? And moreover, I would ask, do ye suppose that ye must not worship God only once in a week? I say unto you, it is well that ye are cast out of your synagogues, that ye may be humble, and that ye may learn wisdom; for it is necessary that ye should learn wisdom; for it is because that ye are cast out, that ye are despised of your brethren because of your exceeding poverty, that ye are brought to a lowliness of heart; for ye are necessarily brought to be humble. And now, because ye are compelled to be humble blessed are ye; for a man sometimes, if he is compelled to be humble, seeketh repentance; and now surely, whosoever repenteth shall find mercy; and he that findeth mercy and endureth to the end the same shall be saved. And now, as I said unto you, that because ye were compelled to be humble ye were blessed, do ye not suppose that they are more blessed who truly humble themselves because of the word? Yea, he that truly humbleth himself, and repenteth of his sins, and endureth to the end, the same shall be blessed—yea, much more blessed than they who are compelled to be humble because of their exceeding poverty. Therefore, blessed are they who humble themselves without being compelled to be humble; or rather, in other words, blessed is he that believeth in the word of God, and is baptized without stubbornness of heart, yea, without being brought to know the word, or even compelled to know, before they will believe. Yea, there are many who do say: If thou wilt show unto us a sign from heaven, then we shall know of a surety; then we shall believe. Now I ask, is this faith? Behold, I say unto you, Nay; for if a man knoweth a thing he hath no cause to believe, for he knoweth it. And now, how much more cursed is he that knoweth the will of God and doeth it not, than he that only believeth, or only hath cause to believe, and falleth into transgression? Now of this thing ye must judge. Behold, I say unto you, that it is on the one hand even as it is on the other; and it shall be unto every man according to his work. And now as I said concerning faith—faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true. And now, behold, I say unto you, and I would that ye should remember, that God is merciful unto all who believe on his name; therefore he desireth, in the first place, that ye should believe, yea, even on his word. And now, he imparteth his word by angels unto men, yea, not only men but women also. Now this is not all; little children do have words given unto them many times, which confound the wise and the learned. And now, my beloved brethren, as ye have desired to know of me what ye shall do because ye are afflicted and cast out—now I do not desire that ye should suppose that I mean to judge you only according to that which is true— For I do not mean that ye all of you have been compelled to humble yourselves; for I verily believe that there are some among you who would humble themselves, let them be in whatsoever circumstances they might. Now, as I said concerning faith—that it was not a perfect knowledge—even so it is with my words. Ye cannot know of their surety at first, unto perfection, any more than faith is a perfect knowledge. But behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place for a portion of my words. Now, we will compare the word unto a seed. Now, if ye give place, that a seed may be planted in your heart, behold, if it be a true seed, or a good seed, if ye do not cast it out by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the L-rd, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves—It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me. Now behold, would not this increase your faith? I say unto you, Yea; nevertheless it hath not grown up to a perfect knowledge. But behold, as the seed swelleth, and sprouteth, and beginneth to grow, then you must needs say that the seed is good; for behold it swelleth, and sprouteth, and beginneth to grow. And now, behold, will not this strengthen your faith? Yea, it will strengthen your faith: for ye will say I know that this is a good seed; for behold it sprouteth and beginneth to grow. And now, behold, are ye sure that this is a good seed? I say unto you, Yea; for every seed bringeth forth unto its own likeness. Therefore, if a seed groweth it is good, but if it groweth not, behold it is not good, therefore it is cast away. And now, behold, because ye have tried the experiment, and planted the seed, and it swelleth and sprouteth, and beginneth to grow, ye must needs know that the seed is good. And now, behold, is you’re knowledge perfect? Yea, your knowledge is perfect in that thing, and your faith is dormant; and this because you know, for ye know that the word hath swelled your souls, and ye also know that it hath sprouted up, that your understanding doth begin to be enlightened, and your mind doth begin to expand. O then, is not this real? I say unto you, Yea, because it is light; and whatsoever is light, is good, because it is discernible, therefore ye must know that it is good; and now behold, after ye have tasted this light is your knowledge perfect? Behold I say unto you, Nay; neither must ye lay aside your faith, for ye have only exercised your faith to plant the seed that ye might try the experiment to know if the seed was good. And behold, as the tree beginneth to grow, ye will say: Let us nourish it with great care, that it may get root, that it may grow up, and bring forth fruit unto us. And now behold, if ye nourish it with much care it will get root, and grow up, and bring forth fruit. But if ye neglect the tree, and take no thought for its nourishment, behold it will not get any root; and when the heat of the sun cometh and scorcheth it, because it hath no root it withers away, and ye pluck it up and cast it out. Now, this is not because the seed was not good, neither is it because the fruit thereof would not be desirable; but it is because your aground is barren, and ye will not nourish the tree, therefore ye cannot have the fruit thereof. And thus, if ye will not nourish the word, looking forward with an eye of faith to the fruit thereof, ye can never pluck of the fruit of the tree of life. But if ye will nourish the word, yea, nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life. And because of your diligence and your faith and your patience with the word in nourishing it, that it may take root in you, behold, by and by ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which is sweet above all that is sweet, and which is white above all that is white, yea, and pure above all that is pure; and ye shall feast upon this fruit even until ye are filled, that ye hunger not, neither shall ye thirst. Then, my brethren, ye shall reap the rewards of your faith, and your diligence, and patience, and long-suffering, waiting for the tree to bring forth fruit unto you.
