The Have and Have Nots

Kindred,


The have and have nots are on full display during times of strife and economic down turns.  


Moral outrage and feelings of unfairness rises to high levels.


Kids think the messages of getting ahead by lying, copying, cheating, stealing and kowtowing to bullies the way to go.  


Instead of developing and forming leaders of innovation and visionaries of peace, love and prosperity, the mindsets devolved into bottom feeders and cockroach-like mentalities of theft, uncouth, uncivilized and unholy behaviors.  


But what is the point of getting ahead in the rat race, in the temporal life, in getting to the have, but becoming the have not in love and peace, in holy and enlightened, in honor and decency, in the substantive practices of salvation?  


How you express of what you have in life are determinants of your character and what you will have in grace (or disgrace); the same goes for what you have not, how you endure and overcome tragedies, how you remain true to yourself and the Lord.  


The have and have nots of character are on full display during times of strife and economic down turns and throughout (temporal) life; your expressions ( of love, empathy, grace, kindness or not) will determine your eternal life.

Check With Holy Spirit First

Kindred,


You do not have to have special powers to connect with the Holy Spirit or great intellect, but you do have to have a purity of heart.  


In today's society, we prize self reliance and independence and when analyzing people and situations we often rely on objectivity and reason.  


What is amazing is that believers and non-believers alike, often fail to recognize the biggest variable in any life equation and is present in every aspect of life, the Holy Spirit.  


When someone lies, cheats, harm or sin, that someone is committing sacrilege in front of the Holy Spirit; just because this someone does not see with the purity of heart to feel the Spirit does not mean that the Holy Spirit does not See them.


Before action, you should always check with the Holy Spirit to make sure you are complying with the Will of the Lord and matching the Lord's Purpose, because to not match is to fail and possibly never enter heaven or end up in hell.

2020

Kindred,


Do you have a feeling that some hazards will continue to ignore wise advice, still will not listen and continue like the escalating sickness and death of COVID-19 and just like escalating sins in greater damnation?  


What is this interest in seeing the future if ignoring good practices results in negatives consequences in the future and goes against the will of the Lord?  


Now why are some so lost in the future imaginings that there is no hindsight? 


What did you see at the beginning of 2020 and how did it play out?  


Did it play out according to what was predicted?  


How groomed into the future are you supposed to be?

Requirement for Heaven

Kindred,


The foundation of faith is not in religious institutions, but in the faith of faithful people with the purity of heart to connect to the Holy Spirit and follow the Lord's Laws.


"For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, there is no way you will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven." 
                              
                                       - Matthew 5:20

Pharisees were considered the religious leaders of their day, just like some ministers and priests are considered religious leaders of our day.  


Do you think your ministers or priests have standards and righteousness that exceeds the righteousness of scribes and Pharisees?  


Hold and live up to the Commandments of Jesus Christ and the Laws of the Prophets?  


Have ethical practices in righteousness that do no harm or commit no sins? 


Basically, does the Lord have the highest ethical and moral standards and Laws; and does the church?  


Why then does this quote from John Quincy Adams still vibrate with accuracy when it comes to those practicing power in the church (and other institutions)?  


"Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak, and that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all His laws."


The role of church is not to practice power, but to practice faith in service of the Lord with adherence to the wisdom of the Lord's Commandments.  


It is not to give into or cover-up for unethical, sinful conduct or give footholds in sins; or act like the morally bankrupted has any moral authority to give real absolution; no church or church leader has this kind of power outside of spiritual and ethical laws and practices, especially when practicing hypocrisy, sins or even having standards at or below that of scribes or Pharisees.


You cannot be the guiding light without any light of righteousness that follows the Lord's Commandments and ethical standards, basic standards and qualifications of entry for heaven*. 





*Matthew 5:20. "I tell you, then, that you will be able to enter the Kingdom of heaven only if you are more faithful than the teachers of the Law and the Pharisees in doing what the Lord requires.").

What Remain

Kindred,


When in difficult times, bleak and bleak, and you cannot see any light, you need to take the leap of faith that this too shall pass as it does in the pass.  


Know that sometimes there is hate, but there will always be love if not anywhere, but inside yourself and with the Lord.  


You may have experienced hate for no reason, based upon your race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity or sexual orientation) or disability, yet these experiences do not define who you are, but the haters.  


Negative experiences may alter your perception of the world, but it cannot define you unless you let it.  


No matter your experience, there are always many things to be grateful for, especially when love exists in the world and people willing to defend and express it in charity; where "Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love"*. 





*1 Corinthians 13:13

Be Aware of Enlightenment

Kindred, 


To be enlightened means to be aware of wisdom and processes that further your understanding and knowledge of the world or particular subject.


To be spiritually enlightened means to be aware of the Lord and the processes that will bring you closer to salvation.  


When people practice self interest in ignorance, what is thought to be in one's own interest may actually turn out to be detriments or against one's own interests, because it turns out self destructive or cause harm to self and others. 


Ignorance and dysfunction cause great weaknesses of character and weaknesses in productive strategies, especially if ignorance in dysfunction and insecurities are acted out in out of control, out of mind, out of spirit power trips.  


Not everyone has the courage to brave the truth or have the ability to be self aware of ignorances or be willing to be enlightened.  


Unfortunately, the consequences of acting upon ignorance in self interest that is actually against one's own self interest, because it becomes harmful and destructive to self or others and leads to damnation.  


It is best to start with where you would like to be on Judgement Day and work toward that goal. 


Be aware of ignorance, dysfunction and pitfalls that will prevent you from being aware of spiritual enlightenment and achieving your ultimate goal of salvation (on Judgement Day).




P.s.

I assume you find going to hell on Judgement Day to be against your self interest and a legacy of lack of character in cowardice and depravity to also be against your self interest and that of your family.

Dear Esnowflake,


We never know what station of eternal life we will be born into, because it is the Lord's Choice. 


What talents bestowed to match the Tapestry of Purpose, again, depend upon the Lord's Will.


How we rise and step up to match the Lord's Expectations determine not only our measure of character, but our eternal destiny.  


For some reason, no matter how difficult, how far, what tragedies or challenges befall, you, like love never fail.  


It might take longer than most human expectations will like, but your battles lost do not translate to character losses and the same applies to your battles won; it eventually matches the holy Tapestry of Purpose.  


I like you, because your love is not based upon selfish desires, wishes or some fairytale ending of human life, but based upon the holy mysteries of eternal life; where, no matter what happens in life, you make sure your character matches the determinates of eternal holy life.  


You constantly strive to live up to the Lord's Expectations and Measurement with your immeasurable hard work and diligence.  


And your marathon endurance to bring the Lord's Blueprint to life and make a heaven on earth with integrity and uncompromising adherence to the Law of the Prophets consistently matches the Lord's Commandments.  


Others may not know the difference between holy and unholy, but you do.  


Others may live in hypocrisy, but you do not.  


All of your accomplishments of character and deeds clearly affirm the reason why the Lord chose you and blessed you with your talents and purpose and why you have the esteemed station you have in eternal life.

Until You Try To Help

Kindred,


"We are allowed to do anything," so they say.  That is true, but not everything is good.


"We are allowed to do anything," so they say. - but not everything is helpful.  


None of you should be looking out for your own interests, but for the interests of others.  


                                            - 1 Corinthians 10: 23-24


If you are able during these trouble times, take the time to help others in need.  


For there are people who depend upon your small measure of kindness and gestures of faith. 


You never know if you can make a difference until you try.

The Gambler

Kindred,


For some reason, the song, "The Gambler"*, keeps running through my mind.  


"He said, "Son, I've made a life

Out of readin' people's faces

Knowin' what the cards were

By the way they held their eyes


So if you don't mind my sayin'

I can see you're out of aces

For a taste of your whiskey

I'll give you some advice.


You've got to know when to hold 'em

Know when to fold 'em

Know when to walk away

And know when to run


You never count your money

When you're sittin' at the table

There'll be time enough for countin'

When the dealin's done.


Every gambler knows

That the secret to survivin'

Is knowin' what to throw away

And knowin' what to keep


You've got to know when to hold 'em (when to hold 'em)
Know when to fold 'em (when to fold 'em)
Know when to walk away
And know when to run


You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done."




*"The Gambler", song by Kenny Rogers.

Proper Credit

Kindred,


Innovations, treatments, cures are often not developed in a day.  


Most often it takes days or even years to fully develop and realize a concept.   


It took Thomas Edison over 2,700 tries and many years of trying to succeed at developing the light bulb (by the way, a concept he did not invent, but did purchase the patents for).  


Credit for an idea or concept must go to the originator.  


Ideas for treatments and cures sometimes takes twenty five years or longer, because must wait the technical advancements and developments before it can be finalized and then realized.  


Leonardo Da Vinci's concepts of the helicopter and parachute were not developed until hundreds of years after his death. 


Still they were his ideas and concepts that originate during his lifetime, not ours.  


Therefore my ideas that originated twenty five years ago belongs to that time period and subsequent adding or tweeking still are continuations of works began during that time period or earlier.  


Copycats deserve no credit and theft of intellectual property (at any time) must be condemned, prosecuted and property returned.

Dear Lovely E,


"Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you."                    

                                        - Walt Whitman



I find myself crossing Brooklyn ferry, 

Time and time again.  

The present is tomorrow

And tomorrow is here and now,

Crossing the Rubicon of life in your Brooklyn ferry.

Unseen and Unforeseen

Kindred,


Chronic miscalculations and catastrophic fails seemed to be the perpetual problem of your so-called friend's super power nonsense predictors and abusers of power perps.


Ignorance, aggression and uncleanness block and obscure sight of all that is holy.  


Seeing whatever wishful thinking of only minute, small minded chess pieces and the partial board of the corrupt is not the whole, nor is it the majesty of all the pieces that belong to the Lord.  


To not see the Lord, not see the Lord's angels, not see anything holy, because of an unpure heart, corrupt mind and soul will cause even greater chronic miscalculations and escalating catastrophic fails.  


Because seeing only the damned, ignorant, wishful thinking or misguided does not encompass all the pieces or the whole board.  


Abuses, lies, frauds and megalomaniac delusions do not change the truth or reality.


Not everyone can be gaslighted or played, threaten or manipulated.  


Certainly nothing and no one can fool the Lord. 


Holy or unholy, heaven or hell, not knowing which or where ultimately will end up, can further greater chronic miscalculations and catastrophic fails, because total lack of  consequential sight.  


What do you think the angels will do if chronic ills and abuses rises to that of Sodom and Gomorrah-like conditions?  


Unseen are the angels, because those unclean and unholy predictors and abusers cannot see with impure hearts.


What is unseen will also be the unforeseen (in chronic miscalculations and catastrophic fails and damnation).

There Will Always Be a Judgement Day

Kindred,


No one escapes the Judgement of the Lord.  


No one lives forever; it is how the cycle of life works.  


Abusers often imagine themselves in power and control for forever in life, but in death, when condemned to hell, abusers become the abused forever in the agonies of hell.  


Negative depravity begets negative hellfire which consumes yet not fully, where the insatiable depravities in life become the insatiable unquenchable thirst in hellfire of death. 


The Lord set the highest ethical standards in life and the fairest Judgement in death, each deed and sins accounted for and weighted on the scales of Justice. 



Failures to follow the Law, can mean the sentence to hell, depending upon the severity of violations and counts of sins (based upon the Lord's Measurement).



If you hope for salvation, play by the rules and standards of the Lord, not of Caesar.

The Match

Kindred,


Admonishing the sinner (not the saint) is an important part of the Spiritual Works of Mercy (which also includes instructing the ignorant and counseling the doubtful).


Without the condemnation of sin(s) and admonishment of the sinner, you become complicit hypocrites that allow for footholds in sins and corruption. 


"You hypocrite,* remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye."


                                                  - Matthew 7:5


It is important for your salvation to remove the sins and obstacles that would corrupt your soul and impure your heart** or make unclean your mind, which would impede your ability to see or receive the Lord.  


The first step to removing sins and obstacles is identifying the issues and sins by firstly being humble, honest and braving the truth. 


Someone who is not humble or is arrogant automatically block the Holy Spirit with arrogance.  


The first Teaching in the Beatitudes is "Happy are those who know they are poor in spirit;"  -Matthew 5:3;

"Poor in Spirit" means to be humble***.            

                                              

Without the first step of being humble, you cannot learn in unbiased, open objectivity and receive humbly or fully the Teachings of Jesus Christ.  


Without humbleness, you cannot be or develop wisdom or meekness and be peaceful enough to inherit the earth****.  


When you are humble, you develop meekness or a gentle kindness of spirit, a peace within yourself that will allow for wise and peaceful processes not overridden or blocked by arrogance or aggression.  


Therefore, if you want salvation or to inherit the earth, your mind, heart and soul (your character) must be match the Teachings in the Beatitudes, in order to be compatible with the Lord, heaven and peace on earth.





* “Do to others whatever you would have them do to you.i This is the law and the prophets.


** "Happy are the pure in heart for they will see the Lord".  -Matthew 5:8


***From Jesus Christ Savior.net.


****"Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth".   -Matthew 5:5

Shame and Falls From Grace

Kindred,


What level of shame do you think the people of Sodom and Gomorrah was at for wanting to rape angels?  


What level of hell?  


What kind of people feel no shame for heinous crimes against humanity?  


Rape, sexual assault without consent, is one of those damnable sins that causes the heart to become unclean and impure, the mind to go into the gutter and the soul to rot with direct pipeline straight to hell.  


Yet many are groomed to believe that it is not that big of a deal, like deadly contagions are not that big of a deal.  


What kind of person feels nothing when people are getting sick and dying around them?  


What kind of person feels nothing when someone is being abused around them? 


My point is that falls from grace is based not on what people feel, believe or think, but upon the Judgement of the Lord.  


If people cannot follow the Law of the Prophets or the Lord's Commandments, then those people failing in character and deed, will fall from grace and be subject to the Lord's negative Judgement, (regardless of what them unholies feel or don't feel).


 


Unconscionable

Kindred,

If you knew ahead of time that literally hundreds of thousands of lives were at stake and forewarned back in January and before to take seriously the threat of COVID-19, but fought against by some smuck on a power trip got a kick out of going against wise counsel and delighted in the evil of seeing abject horror in Einstein's eyes by subterfuge and subversive acts, just to puff self up in megalomaniac fashion, how would you feel?  

How would you feel still today with hundreds of thousands of American lives still at stake and no appropriate action on COVID-19?  

What kind of hapless super power let hundreds and thousands of lives get sick and die needlessly and senselessly for an imagined super power that could care less for the well-being of people?  

A super power so powerful that it's completely useless at fighting COVID-19 and rolls-over waving the white flag like a coward before beginning to fight.  

Abuse of power is not super power and how would abuses in power help with strategies on fighting COVID-19 or save lives?

Do not pretend to be Christians when there is no care for your neighbors.  

The totally irresponsible behaviors of so-called ministers not even bothering to condemn reckless and misbehaviors that could cost lives is unconscionable.

How many funerals must be conducted before stepping up to the responsibility of saving lives, not to mention souls?

Truth

Kindred,


"When you know the truth; 

 the truth will set you free."

                               - John 8:32


When you live a lie, it becomes the separator from anything real; you cannot connect to reality or any real relationship, because connection and the relationship is with a lie and delusions.


Therefore,

"Let us not love with words or tongue, 

 but with actions in the truth." 

                               - John 3:18


The only way to connect to the Lord is in truth and the belief of that Truth.

Illegal Activities

Kindred,


Remember to tell your so-called friend that aiding, abetting, counseling, commanding, inducing, or procuring another to commit a crime under any criminal statute is illegal (18 U.S.C. 2);


Concealing or failing to report to proper authorities the commission of a felony under any criminal statute is illegal (18 U.S.C. 4);


Conspiring with one or more person's to commit a crime under any criminal statute or to defraud the United States is illegal (18 U.S.C. 371); 


Tampering is also illegal (5 U.S.C. 2301);


How many times illegal activities and continuous abuses and illegal conducts also adds to the gravity of counts of crimes.

Must Save Lives

Kindred,


For those of us that remember what it was like on 9/11 when 3,000 lives were lost, COVID-19 has taken now over 238,000 American lives.  

The lives now under threat keep climbing. Unless we come together and do our part, more lives will be lost at escalating rates.

Let us save lives by tackling COVID-19 and getting it under control by doing our part; mask up, social distance, washing our hands and listen to the experts of disease control.  

The best way to get back to normalcy and rebuilding our lives and economy is to wear masks and follow CDC guidelines.  

We have a duty to the Lord and our neighbors to be Good Samaritans and a duty the world and our country to do our part (in protecting ourselves and neighbors) by masking up.  






Saturday, November 7, 2020

Kindred,


"Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.


Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak, and that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all His laws.


If the fundamental principles in the Declaration of Independence, as self-evident truths, are real truths, the existence of slavery, in any form, is a wrong.


If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.


Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air."


- Quotes from John Quincy Adams



Thank you to our past and current leaders.  

As we turn a new chapter in our history, let us pray for the bravery to face the challenges ahead and let our actions inspire and give hope for a better future for the people, humanity, the world and future generations. 







Friday, November 6, 2020

Kindred,


I cannot believe I am ready for Christmas to begin.  


Never felt like wishing for the Christmas Spirit before Thanksgiving.  


In the past, if people begin decorating before Thanksgiving, I would find it annoying (not quite appropriate in timing).


But now, I can't wait for the focus to change from politics to Christmas, Jesus Christ and Saint Nicholas.


Where thoughts of the Peace and Love of Jesus Christ are on the minds of people and the heartwarming gifts of Charity a common place.   


I wonder if people will step up this year in the face of great tragedies and challenges facing us.


This Holiday Season, will we be able the generate the Christmas Spirit? 





Thursday, November 5, 2020

Kindred,


Thank you for performing your civic duty;

you are to be congratulated for exercising for fundamental right to vote (on something legitimate).


Record turn out and mail in voting.  


Remember in a democracy, we take turns every four or eight years.  


We do teach our children to take turns.  


Who ever wins, there will be a lot of work yet to be done for the people in terms of controlling COVID-19, recovering the economy, social justice, environment and many more issues that need to be addressed.  


Let us pray for our leaders, first responders, the sick and people in need.  


Hopefully, they, our leaders, will find a way to heal our nation and find a way forward towards a brighter future for everybody.  




Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
