Prisoners of the Heart

Awestruck, young hearts, their wonder, the innocent thoughts they have, eager to learn, wondering, the same excitement you feel when about to take a trip. A father listens, the child responds patiently, the conversation develops, the education continues. How we learn.

How the great teachers have that sense of wonder, they are not using the ego, just common sense, no fat reputations. Solomon was and is a regular reader of the parables, there being so much meaning in them. He tries to imagine those around the greatest teacher of all, eating the words that come out of his mouth, and hungry for more, as the teacher explains to them their meaning. He did not leave them confused, but explained what the stories mean. It’s easy to imagine them as children, soaking up the words, wanting it to go on.

Prisoners of the heart live on love, same way the Spirit thrives on good deeds. How empty the feeling when love is withdrawn, or the thought of it, it can drive people insane. Jesus in his way, went further, telling them, many who felt oppressed at the time, from living under roman rule, that the Love of God is eternal, why allow your hearts to dim, when you follow the way, your life will be filled with love. So quite those tears, amen.

Solomon heard the stories, saw the traps that are set to enslave the people, met those who usurped the spirit, those in debt to systems, those who were afraid to live, and how the combined fears, drained the love out of so many hearts; it hurts to care, why should we bother, it’s easier not to feel, we can get out own fix, we are not prisoners of the heart.

She swears never to love again, all she has is memories of feeling low, and she is not going there again. She swears this to friends, they all think her tough, but when she encounters the Spirit, it’s something that words can’t explain, like love itself, amen, she becomes a prisoner of the heart. Solomon sighed; without love what is there in life.

High Noon…

1950’s america, the communist witch hunt. 2020, and socialism is now deemed the only rescue route left,the over consumption of the last sixty years, having exhausted the planet. Can you imagine any civilization encouraging such excess. Back to the fifties, the film industry is a mix of responsible writers, those who express what needs to be said. Then the witch hunt, not dissimilar to the burning of women in the great wrath the church of the time, brought down, on anyone who had other thoughts, other than the dogma they were told to ingest. So half of the thought provoking writers for the screen, and other artists, their careers ruined, their families left in great difficulties, because their ideas contradicted the ways of progress. Seventy odd years later, how they miss those souls, amen.

The character in the film knows that evil has to be confronted. The business people of the town are half hearted. The cash flowed when the lawless were in control is all that they can focus on. Seventy years later, off shore scams,theft of resources, the gap between rich and poor, as big as the crevice that divides the believer from those who think only of themselves.

Many people wonder,how it came to this,the mess so many are in. Watch the movies, high noon, all the answers are in that story, amen.

The Wolves are set free…

We will get to the bottom of this. Demons and their assorted armies, converge on God’s people, ground hog day, this has happened before. The Almighty crushed them, and then the Kingdom was made safe. Words spoken against the Holy Spirit, is an eternal sentence, Jesus’s warning.

Angels and those of Spirit,come under assault. The demon mind gamers, seek leverage, a trouble spot inside those, committed to God’s way. It’s hard to sleep, when you have fear inside you residing. It’s not fear, its anxiety on account of those you know well, whom you hold dear in your heart. Spying and undermining, Jesus had to deal with it regularly. So, imagine, what it has been like for those who try to follow in his steps.

Help, Jesus wove power in His words, and gave all credit to another, humble too, to the Father. So, what you might say; Think of the seventy two that went out and came home rejoicing. We gave commands to demons, and they obeyed us. Think yourself a follower of that divine source of power, amen.
