Riches Are Meaningless
Isaiah 10:19 And the remaining trees of his forests will be so few that a child could write them down.
Ecclesiastes 5:8 If you see the poor oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things; for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still.
John 14:1a Let not your heart be troubled…
In a former entry or passing remark, I reasoned that Mr. Obama had lost his grasp on what it means to do justice and invoke mercy in America; up to no good rather and seeking to provoke class warfare to distract attention away from his more serious crimes against We The People. Indeed, ’tis idiocy in its rarest form for citizens to attempt to ‘keep it classy’ while the aggravation of every decent and humble intention raises the proverbial ‘eyebrow’ of a legion of troll informants who cry out to the walls they built around themselves with guileful intent and intelligence defying witness of they know not what, while the walls, for their part, come tumbling down all around them, and not a moment too late, as far as I am concerned for what they have concealed and now reveal to be dead from the neck up.
Madame Hillary would to stay and support this hand in the political arena, for as long as she may, as she was a major reason for bringing Barack into Office in the Washington Swamplands in the first place. The drama is as boring as it is ridiculous and insulting to We The People who happen to be doing a fine job (to our mutual shame) on our own dividing and destroying ourselves, sabotaging the security of our homeland and putrefying the purity of our Dream.
Hard times were meant to keep strong people together, but when, out of forgetfulness and apathy, we react as the Creature would to manage our lives for us, we play right into Its Talons, like that impudent, impious and imprudent generation that thought they were kings and queens of their ‘teenaged wasteland,’ failing to realize that the territory they presumed their own had already been claimed and was militantly and ferociously defended as a geriatric wasteland (oh yeah…)
Psalm 94:20 Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees?
No one, to the everlasting shame of young and old alike, was seeking restoration for everyone by defending the most intrinsic of noble and eternal goods, namely charity and love, but everyone sought only to protect what they lusted after for themselves without having to sacrifice so much as a day’s labor for all that knaves ensure us we are entitled to. Treachery became so thick, one could cut it only with a knife, and at that with great difficulty and exertion on the part of the skilled swordsman. With the double-edged sword of Truth and Light, with ease one may disperse the Egyptian darkness (Exodus 10:21), and the devil doth flee.
Covetousness and feigned speech break Covenant, deny noble obligation, and excuses hateful trespass as common and inevitable.
What we are dealing with, in most cases, is an illicit reaction to Scriptural fulfillment of a hard sort, leaving unrighteous souls with very few options and nowhere to flee to or hide. When people/souls are cut off in their place and left in darkness from generation to generation, it is by no means easy helping those who the L-RD has cut off in His Righteous Wrath and Indignation, and they really don’t deserve anyone’s sympathies, which is why they are often left in the hands of the cruel and the wicked. Perversity finds a way when genuine ingenuity and care would not dare to tread, however.
To manipulate, as a business created, structured and organized for and by criminal interests as a corporation white-washed, the ‘care’ of weeds and broken cisterns is not the meaning of making the best of a land of opportunity nor the American Dream come true (obviously).
It may be likened to an Egyptian kingdom raised from the dead or from the ancient dead cult thereof.
Carnal security isn’t for the Homeland but for the Joint is its point raised as a steeple and chased like a fox.
The Main Drain is verily near Spain or Mexican border, and what’s the difference? Texas and taxes. Mighty neighborly juxtaposition! Too close for comfort!
The FACT that life imprisonment has become the Status Quo is unreasonable and a failure no American Citizen may escape the consequences of nor account or atone for.
There is no excuse for an historically blessed and free nation become its exact opposite and nemesis of Liberty worldwide, which is precisely what all evidences amount to when strung together as a vast web – a long chain of nights – all slowly but surely converging and enveloping one another, giving a much needed yet vain poetic edge to iniquity and inequity run amok and applauded with a veritable barrage of high-5’s, by the wicked, hailed as a victory over God and His Servant down through the history of His Chosen and Our Anointed from Age to Age, generation to generation, by a people diabolically self-deceptive, impenitent and enslaved by the Enemy within all beings, situations and circumstances.
Oy gevalt! All is not well in Zion nor has it been for many generations of captivity now. Nevertheless, considering the heavy toll exacted and price paid by all, Divine Liberty Restored could be but an agreement/covenant/promise away, within our reach or embrace.
2 Kings 15
It may be eternally shrugged off and rejected, leaving One as all forsaken to fry as bacon. The Choice is Ours. But for how long are the Arms of Divine Mercy extended to usward? And few may understand and appreciate just how precarious and perilous our situation is and why the ONLY sane choice We The People have and must make is to vow allegiance without hypocrisy and work out our mutual salvation with fear and trembling in the Hands of an Angry God.
Then and only then may We The People say with confidence unwavering and unshakable, ‘Let We The People Go!’ And start afresh by first retracing our steps to discover the instance in which We lost Our Way, Leader’s approval and confidence, went woefully and rebelliously astray and off-course, divorced from Our Creator as an impish and insensitive Bride who loathes Her own children and husband (Yechezkel 16:45).
Show me your Bison’s and Integrity, Buffalo Soldier that we may salute in unison the One we ought to give thanks and praise to.
One could reason that Mr. Marley, as many have, brought death upon himself by holding a delusional expectation and relation to reality and religion, the notion of slavery with nil understanding of Kingdom politics. He was, nevertheless, gifted with a prophetic edge and touch, probably due to his unique parentage. One might say, he was a more authentic and insightful prophet and revelator than Muhammad and Joseph Smith combined as far as being a Truth Teller.
As for his musical talent, all his songs sound the same to me, save the lyrics are changed and the tempo/beat is increased or decreased accordingly. What was important is that he gave the people what they thirsted for most during hard times all over- an escape from reality burdensome on so many levels and most importantly an excuse for a HIGH TIME that all were sufficiently warned would come to an end and none too comfortably numb or well off at that!
However, the journey itself would impart riches and rewards above and beneath, as well as, coping skills and survival lessons. His music, meanwhile, would continue to inspire, relate and elate souls feeling trapped and oppressed by circumstances beyond their control or ability to cope with otherwise. Mission accomplished through seeming failure is righteous but his fans, followers, what have you, need to extract the good intent from the bad outcome/result and carry the good through to fulfillment in a better more fruitful way than idolizing his person and works, often profiteering (as members of his own family have shamelessly done!) off of the same. He, himself never sought for fame or fortune, but like Kurt Cobain, only to be a vessel of mercy and enlightenment, awareness and a outlet for frustration – a channel for change, transforming negativity and depression into something positive and soul enriching – Freedom of mind, will, choice, and spirit was the longing expressed and heartfelt the desire in all his works. Authenticity, integrity and an unselfish, sacrificing personality brought from him and to him every good gift and reward he possessed and sought to share with the world. And though he may have ultimately denied the doctrine of Christ in speech on at least one instance, in many more, he owned It as a knowing disciple would in a more truthful Way than do Church going believers so-called, who for all their professed, presumptuous zeal, do no more than wrest the Scriptures to their own destruction and condemnation. Whose imaginations are more vile and abominably anti-Christ than such self-loving anti-Christ’s as John Lennon and the like. Who share in themselves no more than an inability to enjoy shared freedom now, and express themselves in such a thankful, gracious and joyful manner as did Mr. Marley. He personified discipleship without pretension or ego. He did everything but overcome through Christ and Torah- perhaps only because he may have been ignorant of the latter to some extent and was outshined by the former, permitting himself to will his way astray and allowing his delusion to work his undoing.
At any rate, a very interesting life story, if you ever get the chance to read – Catch a Fire by Timothy White – worth the perusal.
‘Self-determination’, while considered healthy by many, even some sagacious rabbis, is the ultimate of snares for very subtlety – a very sly concept. Self-expression is good, healthy and truthful in outcome as long as we check ourselves by Torah daily, if not moment to moment. Holy Writ being the Rule and Right of expressive will unto perfection and exaltation of self in HaShem, which will amount to an everlasting reward whether we fail and wreck ourselves or not. What is Holy and Beyond us is most earnestly to be desired. HaShem in self-determination which we see realized in many instances in Holy Writ Itself, in both low and high alike, both paupers and kings, lepers and lions, etc.
After all, satan is hell bent and self-determined that we should destroy self, body and soul, disregard Torah, and discourage one another by any means necessary or possible, so that that which may do the impossible may be denied Its Right and Privilege to work in and through Us. With HaShem and His Chosen remain the Holy Duty and Sacred Obligation with which we may and should garb and guard ourselves in our daily outgoings and incomings, as the Armor of Holy Ordination and Heavenly Anointing determined to fulfill His Will for the Salvation of all mankind.
The righteous yieldeth to none such temptation nor delusion as the world and its trappings may incite in the ignorant and the base fellow (Alma 11:23).
One cannot be saved in ignorance nor behave as befits in determined delusion. One must ‘come out of her’ or overcome the world and nullify the self in order to exalt HaShem’s Righteousness as Rule and Measure, Weight and Balance of the Scale prepared by the L-RD’s Hand, out of Time, in Eternity, for the purpose of molding the perfect disciple fit for the Refiner’s Fire, seven times holy unto the L-RD. And we have the example of Jesus Christ- Perfector, Finisher, Fulfillment of Holy Torah- as ever-living proof and witness that such can be done or undone. Which is even now a mark of the fulfillment of the American Way, some still claim, in their not so foolish yet covetous pride to be the ‘New England Way’ in its most perfect sense; an argument for the Constitution’s sacred validity and fulfillment as well, thereby being made free and reborn, alive in order to pursue that happiness whose realization and experience of – as God in man – equates to pure bliss sans ignorance.
Faith must lead to a perfect knowledge of our sacred duty and Commission Great and Lofty as God’s Holy Throne.
Acts 14:22b “We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”
America is such a great nation. Only the truly ungrateful and the stupid or idiotic and hateful could and often have ruined the Experience for the rest of Us – We The People, by trying to turn Her into something She was never meant to be nor ever shall. United We still stand. Divided they fall daily…our enemies.
Again leaders must take the most responsibility since the majority hire anyone, even for matters of ‘national security’ and don’t bother themselves to personally check up on and follow through with whatever the need may be, even when people do complain of others abusing rights and privileges, showing no regard for National Integrity.
The U.N. is just a social club for misfits and inferiors. A drop in the bucket.
If you aren’t made wise by the American Experience; soul converted and made a better person for the ‘trouble’, you are truly stupid, hateful, ignorant, selfish and unworthy and don’t deserve to be here.
Two-fold sons of hell are poseurs and loose cannons – all ammo, with none precision.
Seven-fold sons of HaShem are as refined silver bullets – every shot, a bull’s eye.
The trick is in letting the Holy work through you, rather than using the Holy to justify or perform some means of your own will.
Democrats are egoists, self-willed, determined and delusive. They will salute anything that shares power and lets without necessarily swearing allegiance or being devoted to that which they salute. Because of this, many Americans, are at fault for more serious sins than the dreaded terrorist enemy and shall, in time, make a ruin of all mankind by herd mentality without a Shepherd or leader who cares for them. Democrats have zero standards, zero foundational awareness, and very little spiritual understanding, mostly because they don’t seek It, but fully depend upon themselves and their wits. They are all impulse without input. They hear the ‘call of the wild’ which is ‘Everybody wants some, I want some too!’ Heed the warning of ‘Let the buyer beware.’ and when complained against for any failure or dissidence on their own part, cry out in unison, “That’s racist! sexist! homophobic! et al.” You could be asking for the time of day and directions to the men’s room and the mantra would remain the same along with a lot of whining for ‘all dogs go to heaven.’ But it isn’t true and their spiritual guru is the devil and his will they seek to perform and make enforced law nationwide, sure as Sharia, and this they do that they might gain any and all carnal rewards they may suck out of the ass-end of a beast or political monstrosity and reality gone to the hogs, which is more than any deserve for all they’ve accomplished and so, ’tis fitting that the same should come upon them in full measure as a final wish fulfillment before execution for treason.
All’s well that ends well and remembers to flush, thus the bad and unwanted will flow away as waste water and the L-RD and His Faithful may establish a Renewed Republic in its place.
Psalm 32:9 Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.
Self-determination is rebellion and suicide; godliness and charity are its anti-thesis and un-doing.
“It was when the Israelites were in a condition of outward ease and security that they were led into sin. They failed to keep God ever before them; they neglected prayer and cherished a spirit of self-confidence. Ease and self-indulgence left the citadel of the soul unguarded, and debasing thoughts found entrance. It was the traitors within the walls that overthrew the strongholds of principle and betrayed Israel into the power of satan. It is thus that satan seeks to compass the ruin of the soul. A long preparatory process, unknown to the world, goes on in the heart before the Jew commits open sin. The mind does not come down at once from purity and holiness to depravity, corruption and crime. It takes time to degrade those formed in the image of God to the brutal or the satanic. By beholding we become changed. By the indulgence of impure thoughts man can so educate his mind that sin which he once loathed will become pleasant to him.
“Satan is using every means to make crime and debasing vice popular. We cannot walk the streets of our cities without encountering flaring notices of crime presented in some novel or to be acted at some theater. The mind is educated to familiarity with sin. The course pursued by the base and vile is kept before the people in the periodicals of the day, and everything that can excite passion is brought before them in exciting stories. They hear and read so much of debasing crime that the once tender conscience, which would have recoiled with horror from such scenes, becomes hardened, and they dwell upon these things with greedy interest.
“Many of the amusements popular in the world today, even with those who claim to be Jews, tend to the same end as did (do) those of the heathen. There are indeed few among them that satan does not turn to account in destroying souls. Through the dramatic has worked for ages to excite passion and glorify vice. The opera, with its fascinating display and bewildering music; the masquerade, the dance, the card table, satan employs to break down the barriers of principle and open the door to sensual indulgence. In every gathering for pleasure where pride is preferred or appetite indulged; where one is led to forget God and lose sight of internal interests, there satan is binding his chains about the soul.
“‘Keep thy heart with all diligence,’ is the counsel of the wise man, ‘for out of it are the issues of life.’ Proverbs4:23. As man ‘thinketh in his heart, so he is.’ Proverbs 23:7. The heart must be renewed by divine grace, or it will be in vain to seek for purity of life. He who attempts to build up a noble, virtuous character independent of the grace of Christ is building his house upon the shifting sand. In fierce storms of temptation it will surely be overthrown. David’s prayer should be the petition of every soul, ‘Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.’ Psalm 51:10. And having become partakers of the heavenly gift, we are to go on unto perfection, being ‘kept by prayer through faith.’ 1 Peter 1:5.” (Excerpts from Patriarchs and Prophets by E.G. White).
There are few Americans who may be simply satisfied with being just that – Americans.
And there are too many who are persecuted and penalized for desiring and being no more than just that – Americans.
The result is that we are slowly but surely losing the right to enjoy the American Experience in its purity and nobility. And as we are bought up and purchased and sold, piece by piece, parcel by parcel, lot by lot, we are being forced to conform to the dictates and desires of idol gods – all of which want to be king over their own kingdom in a homeland distinctively forbidden king or kingdom, monarch or monarchy, tyrant and tyranny, and We The People are foremost in demanding a king to rule over us as the nations that surround and invade us would, when the American Way would demand they conform to the national and nobler call of Freedom.
Galatians 5:1a For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Mosiah 23:13 And now as ye have been delivered by the power of God out of these bonds; yea, and also from the bonds of iniquity, even so I desire that ye should stand fast in this liberty wherewith ye have been made free, and that ye trust no man to be a king over you.
“It is a perilous thing to slight the reproofs and warnings of God’s word or of His Spirit. Many, like Saul, yield to temptation until they become blind to the true character of sin. They flatter themselves that they have had some good object in view, and have done no wrong in departing from the L-RD’s requirements. Thus they do despite to the spirit of grace, until its voice is no longer heard, and they are left to the delusions which they have chosen.” (Excerpts from Patriarchs and Prophets by E.G. White).
Ps 88:13 Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.
“In a field
I am the absence
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.
When I walk
I part the air
the air moves in
to fill the spaces
where my body’s been.
We all have reasons
to keep things whole.”
Keeping Things Whole by Mark Strand
Luke 8:48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
