287. Advice from Christ (You think you know everything)

John 7:28

As Jesus was teaching in the temple, he shouted, “Do you really think you know me and where I came from? I didn’t come on my own! The one who sent me is truthful, and you don’t know him.

I often have conversations with those who are spiritually blind. I feel that they do not want to know the love of God and that like the pharisee’s and the leaders at that time they want miracles for proof. Jesus says that most of this world do not know his father and he isn’t what you think he is.

Please don’t walk through this world blindly. There are many different translations of the Christian bible. Find one that you can understand it. We are not in the dark ages anymore. There are a lot of shiny things that distract and deceive us currently. The media and the Gooberment of the world are two of these things. It is ok to trust but you must verify.

286. The Truth if you accept it.

Proverbs 30:5

“Everything God says is true—and it is a shield for all who come to him for safety”

I know that when I have a problem, or I am looking for a way to respond when my knowledge is insufficient. I look to scripture. Yes, Proverbs is one of them, but I also look to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Jesus told us to go forth and love others as we love ourselves, if we do this then everyone will know we belong to him. It was recommended to me by a preacher that I respect to read the book of Matthew 10 times in a row. I was told it would change your life. Well it has. My heart has grown softer and more caring of others. I have learned that you will never change anyone through anger. You can beat them into submission, but they will still be the same and given a chance they will beat you back.

Turning the other cheek doesn’t have to be done when someone hits you only. You can turn the other cheek when someone belittles you. If someone at works ask you, “What do you want poot head”? you could reply, I wanted to see if you wanted a coffee.

Love can cut much deeper than any knife. A knife or a sword only cuts the physical body. Love can cut the legs out from under a spirit.

285. Light

Proverbs 29:13

“The poor and all who abuse them must each depend on God for light”

Light could be considered many things. It is the what we use to see when it is dark. This light could be from a candle or electricity to power a light bulb. Light could also be from the sun. This light helps us to see and it also it is what life is made of. Light can also be wisdom that is passed from person to person.

All of these same types of light are available to all people living on earth. The same light that shines on a ruler’s face also shines on the poorest faces. This should remind us in our day to day walks that when we leave this realm of struggle we will be judged by the Giver of this light. We are given light at different times in our lives. Remember to let it shine when you have it so that it may lift up others and energize those who feel week.

284. Elected rats

May 28, 2019

Proverbs 28:3

“When someone poor takes over and mistreats the poor, it’s like a heavy rain destroying crops”

This Proverb speaks to the fascist government we have today in many of our countries. Even though we have a Republic and a Constitution the laws are still not strong enough to stop the elected from doing the bidding of the rich fat cat systems that control the elected through lobbying.

If we fight them with violence they will win. They have the money. They have the weaponry. A man only army cannot compete with them and if tried you will be hunted down and killed by people with guns and unlimited financial resources.

Many say, “We just can’t sit here and do nothing”. You are right you must do something. What can you do?

  1. Pray and ask GOD to deliver us from the evil that has devoured our governments from the local up to the world governments. If we all pray this then the Omnipotent One will listen.
  • Start providing for yourself in every way you can. Gardens. Trade things for things. Work for things.
  • Make only enough to keep your local governments from stilling their property from you. If you keep your income low, then you will pay less tax.
  • Learn to do things for yourself. This will save a lot of money and will require less income, so you will pay less taxes.
  • Teach others by example. When you start to do the things above you will look happier. People will ask, “Why are you so happy all the time”? tell them why calmly and don’t chastise them. Constant gentle pressure makes change.
  • Share other ways we can help here or on face book.

281. We are teachers and advisors

Proverbs 23:13-14

“Don’t fail to correct your children. You won’t kill them by being firm, and it may even save their lives”

We should do our best to make sure our children are ready to survive in a world without us. It is our job as a parent to train them to for forth and produce good fruit. During training of any kind mistakes will be made and we will need correction for those mistakes. Boundaries need to be set and if they are crossed then consequences will have to be dealt with.

We love our children. When we are teaching them, we need to take the role of parent and teacher. When they are grown and living on their own we are there trusted friend and advisors.

280. Become the thorn

Proverbs 22:5

“Crooks walk down a path of thorny traps. Stay away from there!”

Why should you become a thorn? My answer is, because crooks are out to get you. In the world of worldly things people are trying to get ahead by taking advantage of others. Be a thorn and don’t be taken advantage of. We shouldn’t go looking for trouble but we need to realize that if it is to good to be true then it probably is. Good things normally don’t come easy. If it is good for you and the person really cares for you they wont give you three seconds to take it or leave it.

Be careful in this world. Look out for others. Even if you don’t like them, please help them. Be neighborly. Be Christ like. Amen

279. Violence will destroy all

Proverbs 21:7

“You destroy yourself by being cruel and violent and refusing to live right.”

Violence no matter how perceived will destroy the one committing it and the one receiving it. Violence breeds violence. Even if if the said violence is for the perceived good by the masses.

I was listening to a the anarcochristian podcast this morning and I heard a clip from the television show Mash. Mash ran from 1972-1973 and was a comedy about the Korean War. Ill write out the clip:

??:                          Everyone knows wars hell

Hawkeye:              War isn’t hell war is war and hell is hell and of the 2 war is a lot worse

Father:                   How do you figure that Hawkeye?

Hawkeye:              Easy father who goes to hell?

Father:                   Sinners I believe

Hawkeye:              Exactly there are no innocent bystanders in hell. War is chocked full of them. Little kids, cripples, and little old ladies. Accept for the brass just about everyone involved is an innocent bystander.

Yes, even the soldiers who were sent there, by the state, are innocent bystanders.

Jesus said, “Love thy neighbor as you would love yourself and if your neighbor strikes you then offer the other cheek for them to strike also”. Jesus never said for us to go kill those who disagree with us.

Most gracious heavenly father forgive the ones who are deceived into committing reprehensible acts for the state, for they know not what they do is wrong and often they think it is good. Amen

278. Be smart = Quiet

Proverbs 20:5

“Someone’s thoughts may be as deep as the ocean, but if you are smart you will discover them.

We need to be smart in our dealings in life. We need to be smart when driving our car. We need to be smart when weeding the flower bed, we need to be smart when we are working with animals. We need to be smart when hunting or foraging for food. What is smart: mentally alert is what the dictionary says smart is. We need to shut up and pay attention. When we want to learn how to be successful then be quiet and pay attention. You can not be mentally alert when you are talking.
