sensitive lives

Preacher looks down on the audience,it’s filled with familiar faces,he knows their secrets,has heard them in private, has to be sensitive, doesn’t want to alarm anyone,or feel that they have been betrayed. He has to chose words wisely. He clears his throat. There are anti social issues that have to be spoken of. As for the signs from above, even he finds them heavy,even if privately, he is delighted, the long term wait is over. But there is a job to do. In a moment of inspiration he finds the source, laughs out loud. The gathering chuckles. Suddenly the penny drops; Jesus used parables so that the teachings would last for all time, amen.

There are poor,rich, ugly, and horrible people down in the pews. My charges he tells himself. He has to lead them to the light. If he says anything out of kilter or unusual,he’ll be reported, he has to be sensitive, he knows they are sinners, and wants to encourage. He laughs a second time, the audience chuckles again, this time he explains. Jesus is the greatest teacher there has ever been he says, I was stuck on the subject matter of today, and was wondering where to start he says, I thought of Jesus, and immediately came up with the answer,amen.

Controlling Lives

Man and woman in conflict, one long battle, how to dress, whom to speak with, it’s along time since Jesus first arrived, when asked about men and women, Jesus didn’t give men control over women, it was developed with customs, added to, made compact, hardened, so over time, women tried to rebel, often with dire consequences, how children need to see their mother’s treated as the possession of the men they lived with, their inner spirit harmed,so this is how women are supposed to behave,reinforcing a behavior, that is in conflict with real love, amen. Those who understand the needs of the inner spirit are few in number, as if to say, the control exerted over women is natural; do you want your daughters to think this when they approach the Kingdom of God, really.

A foul attitude to women is formed early, women are the source of all troubles, the emotion reinforced with laws, our women, our children, well, what sort of report will they supply when the time is up to give back the soul, what will it be full of, deeds of repressed feelings.

Over many decades and centuries books were banned that challenged the standing religion, the men in power were not known for compassion, usually the brutal treatment they dispensed on those who asked awkward questions, and it rolled over and over, to this point in time, when only real love will be able to guide us, not the hybrid love based on power and money so many believed in.

Vulnerable, there are vultures waiting. The immigrant woman has a double jeopardy; her body is worth money in the wrong hands,and everyone knows, that a woman can be purchased any time of the day or night in every population, everywhere. The head space, well its normal to have it that way, it’s how we are made, then the signs arrive from above, with warnings from distant planets, a chance to reaffirm our beliefs. Now it’s seeping into the consciousness of children, is this the new normal, amen.

An asteroid is found, its a long way off, ten year they say. A satellite is launched into space,it’s destiny a long way off, twelve years the journey, why do they wait until the last minute, before making the changes; there is proof of divine intervention, why not accept what it means, amen, we are no more in control than a bird thinking about tomorrows flight plan, amen.

Ezekiel the Prophet

A body formed in the womb, the elements of fire and water, the new life fed through the mother, what she eats the child eats, her blood feeding the new life, the perfect eyes, limbs, then the delivery, the first cries, later, the first words, mama or dada, as the new life announces itself, then the stages of development.

Ezekiel, a prophet from the old testament, writes about a time, when mankind will be judged, as a carer for his people, he appeals to God, knowing his words are heard above. Dear Lord or words to that affect, You crafted humans to be like yourself, ignore those who offended You, focus instead on those who kept your covenant, have mercy upon us.

If Ezekiel was giving a talk today, what would he say to the human race, what would his opinion be, think about it, and if interested, read what the prophet says, it’s written for us to study, amen.

If anyone went to such trouble to create this world, surely, they will be back, amen.

My Sexuality

Concerned therapists, the growing numbers of children, addicted to technology, rearing children to become addicted, helping the process, companies admitting it,this is too much for children, but no one able to raise a voice. The signs from ancient times, appearing, the times we live in, written about by the early prophets, the chaos the confusion, before the judgement. was anyone thinking about anything but money, how was it allowed, this unfettered access to the adult world. It’s the same as having no rules for driving on the road, total chaos and carnage, did we really allow this.

Solomon wondered if anyone had thought of the consequences, did God exist at all, tycoons worrying about the wealth for their own issue, and many future lifetimes too, as if they were exalted in some way. If they had seen the evidence that the current times is providing, but it’s never explained, amen.

Don’t harm the well being of the Holy Spirit, it all goes back to the eternal One God, amen. the power that controls the world above and below, who would try to sexualize the world of the very young, what race of humans would do this; if it happened in previous times, we’d all be shaking our heads and say, what were they thinking’ they weren’t thinking at all, just focused on the money, does anything change in all reality, amen.

Peace in our time

Food on the table, a mother’s first thought, looking after her children. A woman spots a hungry child, she immediately thinks of her own, that could be my child. Religion unimportant, the love of the child and welfare, is the uppermost thought in the mothers head, there is a home, there lies harmony, so we hope.

Solomon sighed; there were various religious groups trying to lay claim to God, as there God, and no one else, as if they are privileged. There were many groups trying to justify war, and the control of populations. How so few of them, look to motherhood and the common wisdom therein. Mothers don;t raise children to hate, and mothers by nature have more in common with mothers, no matter where they come from.

Solomon sighed; it’s a great home where there is peace in the kitchen, amen. It’s an even greater world, when the seeds of peace are sown in the hearts of all children, amen.

Insects bugs worms food

The swallow swoops down upon the river, grabbing tiny flies as it goes, it’s mouth open, the flies where they are supposed to be. The spider feels the web shake, another meal has been caught. The worm is caught in the flood, a meal for a trout, and it goes on and on. man comes along, doesn’t like those insects that like his corn, decides to do away with them. The poisoned insect is eaten by the bird, who dies from poisoning, and this is repeated the world over. Years later, there is an outcry, the insects are dying, the water isn’t clean, the birds are getting smaller, Mother nature is loosing strength.

The mirror, that’s you, no escaping it’s human thinking that has driven us to this state of affairs, and it’s Godly thinking, that will point us in the direction of healing it, amen. A tiny virus that is only visible under microscope, brought the world to a halt; Those little insects, that food chain, it all adds up, and when there are gaps in the chain, there is only uncertainty, amen.

Beauty

There are so many ways to describe beauty; to some it’s the reflection in the mirror, how perfect we feel when compared to others, there are many ways of seeing it. But do we take into consideration the inner beauty, that goes deeper than mere physical aspects. It’s easy to throw out comments, but as soon as trouble arrives, a different version of ourselves arrives, in a nutshell, we like our comfort zones, and don’t like those who remind us of our failings; Jesus made this clear when he came upon the earth; He reminded the Spiritual leaders of the day, how they gave attention to those that were wealthy in preference to those that needed help. They praised the material world over the Spiritual, so Jesus told them.

Solomon sighed; we all have failings. Our world pushes the perfect figure, the perfect life, political correct thought too, but is any of it real, or just the way we have been led, amen. Imagine the reality, that one day all will face. A perfect day, the visit to the doctor, the diagnosis, the change in plans, the new expectations, a new life ahead. All the so called problems are no longer problems, what is important changes overnight, and all you are left with, is your conscience. To find beauty in those times, is priceless. Given the changes going on, it was wise to set aside time, regarding your relationship with the Almighty God, amen.

Mercy

All the righteous dead calling out, how many voices, those unjustly murdered,the output of the Spirit stolen from, serious times, serious crimes, Solomon wondered if they noticed, the volcanoes, the earthquakes, the rudderless world, leaving it to mere men to fix, wasn’t thinking, as if the same people created the world.

What if the current generation were going to be asked to address the issue; the righteous dead, what if, all those unjust deaths had to be accounted for, why not, the times coincide with prophecy of old. The numbers tell the same story, the time is near, and warnings from space, point to the potential of a world changing event, from the sun.

The silent walk of all those who entered the gas chambers, will humanity have to answer for it; is there a lesson, did we repeat the same mistakes afterwards. Did we allow the military complex take over the world, giving protection to the highest bidder, over throwing legitimate governments, how did it happen, so soon after the second great war.

Solomon sighed; the usual suspects didn’t want the world to get too excited, calm, we can fix this, how many fresh faced politicians do we hear that rubbish from, most of them. The third world war had been ongoing these last twenty five years, the way we use our hearts and minds, written permanently in our internet habits, well, who are you anyway, amen, but the sum of your deeds.

Islands on fire, water in short supply, fish getting smaller, there is a lot to be concerned for; if they are real, they’d have the picture of the cloud on billboards, to alert people, there is a power beyond,they could have; now science is saying the same thing, the planet isn’t as safe as many hope, and they could have earned real blessings, yet didn’t even try, amen.

He’s got a conscience, drinks to hide from the horrors he was involved in, needs sleep. Imagine what the judgement of God will be like; time to do something really good for a change,amen. Otherwise those bad memories will chase you around.

The inner Self

The cover up, point in any direction, over there, they are breaking the law, lets target them. The mob screams, the chase begins, all thoughts of the self forgotten, while telling themselves, this is God’s way, or so their leader says. The mob beat the man, he is an adulterer, was seen coming out of a house, where a single lady resided. Praise to God they shout, as if the Almighty advised violence, when it’s compassion and understanding that is sought. Hiding among the regulations, isn’t that what crooks do, well if it’s legal, written in the law, it’s all right.

Jesus was speaking to the apostles. People were complaining, that Jesus and his followers were breaking all the rules, ignoring the rules of washing, eating the wrong foods, communing with those considered dirty. What makes you unworthy, is what comes out of your mouth, not what goes into it. At the time, people were speaking against the apostles, for the habits they practiced.

The inner self, the beliefs you hold, the bias you encourage, the hatred you hold, and harm you wish towards others, this is what makes you unholy. Many complained, the women should be covered, they tempt men, they encourage them in the wrong habits, lets blame them. Jesus understood the human mindset. How use was made of laws to hound people. If the men found it hard to deal with temptation, it was their inner selves that was driving their passions. To blame mothers for their behavior, was outrageous, amen. Did they not listen to the early prophets; the battle that has to be fought, is the battle within, that’s the field of battle.

GOD’S WRATH?

These times, so many violent changes, so sudden, they can’t be forecast. Deluge, villages disappear, politicians acting foolishly, rubbish emerging from their mouths, children with access to all the porn you could imagine,all of them with phones, millions daily, the environment itself, beyond help, it’s now a slowing policy, nothing more, men more confused than ever, they just need sex it seems, young people unable to decide on their sexuality, a mad president acting like a mafia don, clean water, almost extinct, and when God sends the help and the warnings, what is the reaction, the price, just as Oscar Wilde said all those years ago. The cloud with this blog, is real, arrived just over eight years ago, and came with the promise of the Holy Spirit too. It brings the words of Isaiah into play again. The prophet Jesus referred to again and again,and still is, amen.
