I Was Raised In Babylon

October 26, 2020

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

You Light Up My Life (by God)

September 18, 2020

So many nights
I’d sit by my window
Waiting for someone
To sing me his song
So many dreams
I’ve kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark
But now you’ve come along

And you
Light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights
With song


Triad: Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)

September 7, 2020

Give me love
Give me love
Give me peace on earth
Give me light
Give me life
Keep me free from birth
Give me hope
Help me cope, with this heavy load
Trying to, touch and reach you with,
heart and soul

OM M M M M M M M M M M M M M
M M M My Lord . . .

PLEASE take hold of my hand,
that I might understand . . .


Let It Rain

August 23, 2020

The rain is falling through the mist
Of sorrow that surrounded me.
The sun could never thaw away
The bliss that lays around me.

Let it rain, let it rain,
Let your love rain down on me.
Let it rain, let it rain,
Let it rain, rain, rain.

Now I know the secret;
There is nothing that I lack.
If I give my love to you,
You’ll surely give it back.

“I said it was going to be playing, and it is.”

The Morning After [by God]

May 16, 2020

There’s got to be a morning after
If we can hold on through the night
We have a chance to find the sunshine
Let’s keep on looking for the light

Oh, can’t you see the morning after?
It’s waiting right outside the storm
Why don’t we cross the bridge together
And find a place that’s safe and warm?

It’s not too late, we should be giving
Only with love can we climb
It’s not too late, not while we’re living
Let’s put our hands out in time

There’s got to be a morning after
We’re moving closer to the shore
I know we’ll be there by tomorrow
And we’ll escape the darkness
We won’t be searching anymore

There’s got to be a morning after
(There’s got to be a morning after)
There’s got to be a morning after

All Along The Watchtower

February 15, 2020

One may have seen (and lived) what was not meant to be spoken of.  Still, through writing, there is another way.  What was pictured, what was sent, what was undergone, was to be of what will be.  Through this, while looking and living forward, what was shared can be shared – as a voice beyond a tongue.


And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it

[They] also knew what was next: a towering wall of water washing over
. . . , cleansing it of all that was evil and impure.


To Bear Witness of That Light

February 8, 2020

A Ready Pen_0001+

And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest.  And he said to me, “These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”

And there will come a time:
“Do you want to eat?  Or, are you willing to die?”

Waiting, in a psalmist sense, may lead to an arrival of bestowment all at once.  Along the way of perseverance, we may also be fulfilled in steps after steps – where the promised gift is an eventual culmination.  From the onset of this spirit, our knowing, our believing, and our faith may withstand any rising mountains – where we, ultimately, realize a lifting beyond each one.


Words of Mass Discernment

February 2, 2020

God and Jesus do not work with, or through, lies; that would be “a house divided.”  They tell us the Truth; it is only within this that we are meant to hear, to be moved – forward.  To see what is provided, clearly, to know what is beneath and beyond present[ed] cloaks, is Their calling – that our learning may lead to teaching[s] after (perspective) silence[s].  Ask, question, discern: What reality is being, or has been, put forth (to follow)?  What is the originating base?  What are the goals?  Take the original Fact of this assertion – and be guided only within those directions.  When answers are of undoubted division, reject and rebuke that house.  Then, strengthen your own – that it may be one (continuously built upon).

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:
I came not to send peace, but a sword.”

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

January 11, 2020

Of-Timing

As I was walking down the street one day
A man came up to me and asked me
What the time was that was on my watch
Yeah …  and I said

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so, I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all got time enough to cry

And I was walking down the street one day
A pretty lady looked at me
And said her diamond watch had stopped cold dead
And I said

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so, I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all got time enough to cry

And I was walking down the street one day
Being pushed and shoved by people
Trying to beat the clock, oh, no
I just don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know-oh
And I said … yes, I said

(Background:
People runnin’ everywhere
Don’t know where to go
Don’t know where I am
Can’t see past the next step
Don’t have time to think past the last one
Have no time to look around
Just run around, run around think why)

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all had time enough to die

Everybody’s wondering (I don’t care) I don’t care (About time)
About time (Oh no, no) I don’t care

There’s an army rising up ( We won’t keep silent)

To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

Declare that the chains are broken –
By the power that’s in the name of Jesus
Every chain of bondage …

I hear the chains falling

Break – Chain – Break –
The power of life and death is in your tongue

To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

And if you feel that you can’t go on
And your will’s sinking low
Just believe, and you can’t go wrong
In the light, you will find the road

Hey, did you ever believe that I could leave you
Standing out in the cold
Yeah, baby, I know how it feels cause I have slipped through
To the very depths of my soul
Oh-baby, I just want to show you what a clear view
It is from every bend in the road

Now listen
Oh, whoa-whoa, as I was and really would be for you, too.
As you would for me, I would share your load
Let me share your load
Ooh, let me share, share your load

And if you feel that you can’t go on
In the light, you will find the road

The the winds of change may blow around you
But that will always be so
When love is pain it can devour you, but you are never alone
I will share your load,  I will share your load
Baby, let me, oh, let me

Ooh, baby.  Everybody, everybody, everybody

Victims of the Fury

November 30, 2019

Victims of the Fury+

You were all the rays of sunlight
Shining O’ to me
Every colour of the rainbow
I was blessed by high decree
You were every moment’s magic
Joy beyond compare
You were all the rays of sunlight
I was lost without a care

Victims of the fury
Shadows in the dark
Victims of the fury
Arrows found their mark

So we lived our days in rapture
Like the world could never end
We weren’t thinking ‘bout the future
We had time enough to spend
We were blessed as though in heaven
We were messengers of joy
There were angels all around us
There was none who would destroy

Then the world collapsed around us
And the tables overturned
We were lambs before the slaughter
We were driven out and burned
Yes the world collapsed around us
And the archers found their mark
We were victims of the fury
We were shadows in the dark

Only By; Only For; Only When

Your Spirit: This Is Why We Sing

November 2, 2019

This is Why We Sing

In the name of Jesus:
I was lost;
I was found –
I was saved.
In the name of Jesus:
I found Love;
I found peace –
As He gave.
In the name of Jesus:
When we find the songs –
Then we sing –
In His Name.

This is why we sing:
For the truth (as given).
This is why we sing.
When we find Your truth;
When we know,
We sing to the Holy –
As we follow.

Peace – as I was saved;
Filled – as He lifted –
I was gifted;
In Your Love, I was reborn.

In the name of Jesus –
I was found;
I was saved;
I am Loved.

I found Love;
I am Loved.

The Groom’s Still Waiting at the Altar

August 17, 2019

Prayed in the ghetto with my face in the cement,
Heard the last moan of a boxer, seen the massacre of the innocent
Felt around for the light switch, became nauseated.
She was walking down the hallway while the walls deteriorated.

East of the Jordan, hard as the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the page, Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Try to be pure at heart, they arrest you for robbery,
Mistake your shyness for aloofness, your silence for snobbery,
Got the message this morning, the one that was sent to me
About the madness of becomin’ what one was never meant to be.

West of the Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage,
Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Don’t know what I can say about Claudette that wouldn’t come back to haunt me,
Finally had to give her up ’bout the time she began to want me.
But I know God has mercy on them who are slandered and humiliated.
I’d a-done anything for that woman if she didn’t make me feel so obligated.

West of the Jordan, west of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the cage,
Curtain risin’ on a new stage,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Put your hand on my head, baby, do I have a temperature?
I see people who are supposed to know better standin’ around like furniture.
There’s a wall between you and what you want and you got to leap it,
Tonight you got the power to take it, tomorrow you won’t have the power to keep it.

West of the Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage, Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Cities on fire, phones out of order,
They’re killing nuns and soldiers, there’s fighting on the border.
What can I say about Claudette?
Ain’t seen her since January,
She could be respectably married or running a whorehouse in Buenos Aires.

West of the Jordan, west of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage,
Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

“In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.  Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.  Lead us not unto temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.  Amen.”  Matthew 6: 9-13

Trilogy: Property of Jesus

April 22, 2019

Go ahead and talk about him because he makes you doubt
Because he has denied himself the things that you can’t live without
Laugh at him behind his back just like the others do
Remind him of what he used to be when he comes walkin’ through

He’s the property of Jesus
Resent him to the bone
You got something better
You’ve got a heart of stone

Stop your conversation when he passes on the street
Hope he falls upon himself, oh, won’t that be sweet
Because he can’t be exploited by superstition anymore
Because he can’t be bribed or bought by the things that you adore

He’s the property of Jesus
Resent him to the bone
You got something better
You’ve got a heart of stone

When the whip that’s keeping you in line doesn’t make him jump
Say he’s hard-of-hearin’, say that he’s a chump
Say he’s out of step with reality as you try to test his nerve
Because he doesn’t pay no tribute to the king that you serve

He’s the property of Jesus
Resent him to the bone
You got something better
You’ve got a heart of stone

Say that he’s a loser ’cause he got no common sense
Because he don’t increase his worth at someone else’s expense
Because he’s not afraid of trying, ’cause he don’t look at you and smile
’Cause he doesn’t tell you jokes or fairy tales, say he’s got no style

He’s the property of Jesus
Resent him to the bone
You got something better
You’ve got a heart of stone

You can laugh at salvation, you can play Olympic games
You think that when you rest at last you’ll go back from where you came

But you’ve picked up quite a story and you’ve changed since the womb
What happened to the real you, you’ve been captured but by whom?

He’s the property of Jesus
Resent him to the bone
You got something better
You’ve got a heart of stone

Right to Overcome

At the same time[s], be aware: The truth is in seeking.  Once we, in
tandems with the spirit, have sought to “overcome” to certain utmost degrees, remaining abilities may then need to be given over to the Trinity.  Therein, these are not failures, for within we are still won.

East of the Jordan, hard as the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the page, Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.


Trilogy: Slow Train Coming

April 20, 2019

Slow Train Coming-+

Sometimes I feel so low-down and disgusted
Can’t help but wonder what’s happenin’ to my companions
Are they lost or are they found
Have they counted the cost it’ll take to bring down
All their earthly principles they’re gonna have to abandon?
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

I had a woman down in Alabama
She was a backwoods girl, but she sure was realistic
She said, “Boy, without a doubt
Have to quit your mess and straighten out
You could die down here, be just another accident statistic”
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

All that foreign oil controlling American soil
Look around you, it’s just bound to make you embarrassed
Sheiks walkin’ around like kings
Wearing fancy jewels and nose rings
Deciding America’s future from Amsterdam and to Paris
And there’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

Man’s ego is inflated, his laws are outdated, they don’t apply no more
You can’t rely no more to be standin’ around waitin’
In the home of the brave
Jefferson turnin’ over in his grave
Fools glorifying themselves, trying to manipulate Satan
And there’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

Big-time negotiators, false healers and woman haters
Masters of the bluff and masters of the proposition
But the enemy I see
Wears a cloak of decency
All nonbelievers and men stealers talkin’ in the name of religion
And there’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

People starving and thirsting, grain elevators are bursting
Oh, you know it costs more to store the food than it do to give it
They say lose your inhibitions
Follow your own ambitions
They talk about a life of brotherly love (show me someone who knows how to live it)
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

Well, my baby went to Illinois with some bad-talkin’ boy she could destroy
A real suicide case, but there was nothin’ I could do to stop it
I don’t care about economy
I don’t care about astronomy
But it sure do bother me to see my loved ones turning into puppets
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

Some Atheists Use Blindness As a Chosen Weapon

January 19, 2019

At every opportunity, whether slightly relevant or completely “manufactured” because it has nothing to do with relevance, you never cease to create a space for your ongoing venomous, vicious,
and vile attacks against anything relating to an actual God.  It is not even enough to equate believers (of all faiths) with Nazis – since your blinded bias is so lost and grounded in a propagandistic warlike fashion, where everyone else beyond your belief system can be damned in an evolutionary survival of the fittest.  You, “[Caitlin Johnstone, one of the worst examples of a double-faced atheist, also never directly bring] any of this up.”  Instead, the subject and references to be mocked and vilified are repeatedly inserted through tangential veils.  “I find [it] both [consciously evil and utterly contemptible].”  Ever heard or read the following quote, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

Of sacred importance, obviously, you’ve never had an undoubted spiritual experience which left you with, in the least, absolute proof of a spiritual realm, or, in the utmost, “infallible” knowledge of the very Holy Spirit and God’s existence/family as Fact.  Therefore, “placing faith in the words of [inspired] priests and [miraculous] books authored by long-dead men” is far times more beneath your capability than those who are perfectly resolute through only basic (learned) Wisdom and ever-evolving Faith: “blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”

As written previously, these barbarously provoking actions may serve to temporarily fulfill (abhorrent) agendas.  But, they also expose, reveal, and ruin your overall reputation, permanently (if without atonement), leaving your entire credibility suspect and wholly tainted as the worst type of (supposedly enlightened and tolerant Progressive) Hypocrite.

Truth: “[You are] a zealous bishop” of Atheism – with no more respect for anyone who is not an Atheist than the 1% zealots had for the hundreds of thousands who died through recent worldwide lie campaigns. To further your heretically slanted focuses against God and all intertwined, inclusive of all lines that can be crossed, why not mark these targets more openly as directly vengeful atheistic narrative objectives? Being unapologetic about everything you stand for, why not clearly state the extreme levels of goals within your nihilist stances, and to hell with any repercussions? 

Resurrections
How could something (everything) come from nothing?  It could not, for there has to be, or, have been, some thing, first – for without there is not, or, could not have been, any thing for some thing to come from.  Nothing can come from nothing.  Every thing came from something.  Nothing existed, except one, and it/He//that created what was to be the beginning – of something.  This is indisputable, for not even a spark of a “bang” can, or could have, originated from nothing.  How we attempt to describe what was first, beyond nothing, and desired something, has been written – time and again.

Does God Exist?
