Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife.

Questions: Are You Ready?

November 24, 2018

Imagine: Millions of Christians (so to speak), many on television, radio, in print – claiming to have had visions, heard the voices of God and Jesus Christ – to have been moved by the actual Holy Spirit (as combined with all the latter).

Would that be a problem?
Would there be any accusations?
Why would there be any accusations?
What are among the most vile accusations – there could be?
What would be wrong – if there were?
Who questions how They choose to communicate, or when
(who questions)?

There are some things Christians should not have to hide.
Yet, why would some have to hide?

New Shells and +1

What is stronger, one minute, one moment of a Miracle
(of the Holy Spirit), or seven days of torture (afterward)?
The moment[s] are Forever.  The torture is temporary.

What outweighs, should those days become relentless,
in correspondence – even over an entire lifetime?

There is a Promise:
No matter what we face or how much we face it,
an ongoing fact of deliverance can still be lived, regardless –
for there is another life awaiting, where we are to be delivered
(from these clutches), eternally, thereafter.
Once we are born again, nothing outweighs this Truth.

God is Love.  God is over all.  There is nothing stronger.

Message To Love

May 20, 2018


Well I travel at the speed of a reborn man
I got a lot of love to give
From the mirrors of my hand

I sent a message of love
Don’t you run away
Look at your heart baby
Come on along with me today

Well I am what I am thank God
Some people just don’t understand
Well help them God
Find yourself first
And then your tool
Find yourself first
Don’t you be no fool

Here comes a woman
Wrapped up in chain
Messin’ with that fool baby
Your life is pain
If you wanna be free
Come on along with me
Don’t mess with the man
He’ll never understand
I said find yourself first
And then your talent
Work hard in your mind
So you can come alive
You better prove to the man
You’re as strong as him
Cause in the eyes of God
You’re both children to him

Everybody come alive
Everybody love alive
Everybody love alive
Everybody hear my message

Doorway To a Thousand Churches

December 25, 2017

Love, I get so lost sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
When I want to run away, I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go, I come back to the place you are

All my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes, the light, the heat
(In your eyes) I am complete
(In your eyes) I see the doorway
(In your eyes) To a thousand churches
(In your eyes) The resolution
(In your eyes) Of all the fruitless searches
(In your eyes) Oh, I see the light and the heat
(In your eyes, the light, the heat)
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light, the heat I see in your eyes

Love, I don’t like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

And all my instincts, they return
And the grand façade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes (your eyes, your eyes)
In your eyes
In your eyes, the light, the heat
(In your eyes) I am complete
(In your eyes) I see the doorway to a thousand churches
(In your eyes) The resolution
(In your eyes) Of all the fruitless searches
Oh, I see the light and the heat
(In your eyes) Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light, the heat I see in your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes

To Believe

January 19, 2017

Imagine visions, hearing, over years: there will be a renewed future.  Imagine resultant periods of unique success, of unbreakable hope and various inspirational/spiritual peaks.  Imagine, after more years, finding yourself immersed in total turmoil (and ongoing diabolicaattacks)
while
 reaching a point where virtually everything earthly was lost: realization of fruition had not come to pass.  Imagine (with the latter) not being able to see any path for it to ever be fulfilled (as now) – though at times (all along the way) occurrences were sent as a means to enhance remembrance of the original.  Thereupon, imagine another one, but without specifics – and soon crying out because it still seemed absolutely impossible.  Then, imagine a reply: To Believe – without knowing. . . .

For those claims must have results —
Even if their singular Path can only be realized, judged, and ruled
In and from exclusive Towers.
For us, they are the “Chosen” —
So some say.
Yet, many reason, and may wonder –

Rising Tides
Easter 2014: How many millions have watched “paranormal” shows and, aside from the predominant fluff, seen indisputable proof of afer-lives/ongoing existence in other planes?  How many millions have heard/watched “mediums” speaking the words of those “passed on” and knew, My God, that was real?  How few have realized from the latter/former that what was witnessed/experienced, positively, could open avenues toward understanding, and eventually accepting, realities of Spirit?  Accepting may be first, in steps.  Understanding may be first.  The aspects may work together as a coinciding wonder.  In whatever singular or combined path (of/for purity), getting to that initial door is of a sacred magnitude – where one can receive ongoing keys.

Further, though there is and was crucial Truth to Jesus Christ literally returning to be among His people (as resurrected), what if, just for an openings’ sake, one took time to correspond medium-type occurrences (back then), at least as possibilities in some instances of those passages?  Could Jesus have spoken through Mary Magdalene in such a way that the Apostles had no doubt of where and of whom it was coming?  Maybe she was gifted in that way – collective to being especially chosen?  As in Acts 2:2, could Peter, and all of them (including various scribes and followers) also have had experiences so overwhelming that other doors of Truth were opened forever?  Regarding “paranormal” relations (again for openings’ sake), what more may Mary and the rest have seen/witnessed after His death?  What other events were so powerful, which, combined with all the previous miracles, moved them to seek to move all others with such absolute fervor and confidence?

a Battle rising The more the darkness steps up, the more the Light coincides.  The more the darkness destroys, the more the Light restores (in preparation).  The Time itself is rising — as the other side tries to reap and conquer all that it can — knowing that its time is limited to a certain span.  Just before the end of that span, Victory is assured — as was written, for only one side.  What each of us will be called upon to do during these (and those) times will vary (in levels).  What each of us will experience during these (and those) times will vary (in levels).  Yet, every calling/experience will be essential to the overall, to the Collective.

He is here with us, now.  He is leading these efforts, now.  He [was] watching while I wrote this.  He will be watching while you read this.
He and the Father are preparing whatever and whoever needs to be prepared.  And, when the time comes – […] all of us (whether after our earthly lives or during), as well as all of them, will witness the Truth, the fulfillment, and everything promised through the Word.

New Atheists and Evolution

July 13, 2009

In Robert Wright’s article, “Why ‘New Atheists’ [?] are Right-Wing on Foreign Policy,” he states, conclusively: “People are survival machines built by natural selection.”  True, humans have evolved in many ways – including their Spiritual understanding.  For example, interpretations and reactions relating to an out-of-body/after-death experience in 500 B.C. would most likely differ essentially from those in the 21st century.  Let’s say the occurrence was one where (after dying) an individual went up/out (per our cognizance level), and arrived at the feet of a large (Lincoln Memorial-size) entity sitting on something like a throne.  Immediately thereafter, the traveler started to smile, while suddenly feeling an onset: overwhelming senses of cleansing purity – and Home.  Then, just before going further, toward what was expected (like it had happened before), he heard a loud voice say Go Down.” Thoroughly shocked, the individual fell a long distance (without knowing why), eventually (after earthly clouds) approaching a Lake of Flames as wide as a Starred City.  And finally, the (spiritual) person held back from screaming – until hitting those flames.  What took place afterward could not be remembered upon coming back to (this) life.  In 500 B.C., it might have been seen as unrealistic ranting from a nightmarish dream, or even an omen, relative to then-current mythology.  To others, it may have been taken as a Vision, like certain stories considered for (and included in) the Bible.  Through the 21st century, with distinct knowledge of The New Testament and Jesus Christ (as well as contexts relating to “A History of Heaven: Journeys to Heaven”), one could also interpret/react as if the occurrence was actual, and a Gift (though profoundly disturbing) – since (this not being a focus of foretelling) a return (Deliverance) was possible.  Most important, there is considerable doubt that the experience by way of an atheist (then or now) would leave him/her denying God’s Existence.
