What am I?



Kindred,


"It is priceless, yet it costs us nothing. 



You can do anything you want with it, 



but you can't own it. 



You can spend it, but you can't keep it. 



And once you've lost it, there is no getting it 



back. 



It's just gone."*


What is it?


"I can bring tears to your eyes; 



resurrect the dead, 



make you smile, 



and reverse time. 



I form in an instant but I last a life time."**


What am I?


Time will pass, but memories last.


The happy memories warms the heart and



uplifts the soul;



The sad ones sink and muddle the mind.  



What am I?



Be it happy or sad is up to the individual.


Therefore, let us leave behind the bad of old and



begin the  new year with better mindsets to



be a better person and create happy memories to



remember to reverse time when you need to


and bring out the joys and wonders of a



wonderful life.


Happy New Year 🎆

Lesson Learned?

Kindred,


Have we really learned our lesson?  


From our handling of COVID-19 to racism, to sins and other crimes against humanity, have we truly learned our lesson?  


Since the beginning of the year, what have we learned?   And through the years, what have we learned?  


Perhaps a better question would be, what hasn't been swept under the rug and what are we doomed to repeat?  


What patterns of behavior are we going to leave our children?   What mistakes of ours will they have to live through and live with?  


If someone believed, at the beginning of the year, in the absolute rightness of their opinions or "bright" ideas, what makes you think that given  slightly different scenarios that the approach would not be the same?  


That the patterns from grooming, activations, tearing down in order to puff oneself up, criticisms just to criticize without options for positive solutions, delighting in the evil of bad behaviors and sins, the lies and misinformation, are all going to magically stop at the beginning of the new year?

True Believer?

Kindred,


Who told you that you would be saved if you believed in Jesus?  


And somehow you do not have to do or be anything else, but believe in Jesus to be saved?  


And that you can commit any sin and somehow you would be forgiven (automatically if you just believe)?


Why not actually hear the words of Jesus Christ?  


Directly from scripture. 


"Not everyone who calls me 'Lord, Lord' will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only those who do what my Father in heaven wants them to do.


When the Judgement Day comes, many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord!  In your name we spoke God's message, by your name we drove out many demons and performed many miracles!


Then I will say to them, 'I never knew you.  Get away from me you wicked people!'


                                                 - Matthew 7:21-23

                                                    (Luke 13: 25-27)


Does it sound like Jesus is talking to a bunch of unbelievers or believers?  


And does it sound like the the unholies were forgiven by Jesus? 


And in the end, were those people allowed to enter the Kingdom of heaven?


Who's words carry greater weight and moral authority?  


Do not stray from the Words of Jesus Christ and think you are following Jesus, because you would not.  


And if you stray from Jesus Christ, are you a true believer?

What the Lord Would Think

Kindred,


How many times have you heard "think twice"?


And how many times people have failed to think before taking action?  


Consequences are a part of life, short term and long term, positive and negative, inconsequential and consequential.  


Left behind in the wake of consequences are lives destroyed or helped.  


Destruction begets destruction; just as sins beget harm, injuries and damnation.  


The illusion and delusions of the invincibility of power and control begets the carelessness and disregard and disrespect for the Lord and the Lord's creations.  


No one ever lives forever or can go through life without tragedies involved with simply living the cycle of life.  


Excuses in bad practices and sinful behaviors while promising salvation in the practice hate, abuse of power and sins, are nothing but empty promises.   


Nothing promising ever gets accomplished with lies and false promises; and salvation can never be received with power, control or sins (the Lord decides Judgement, not anyone person).


Only by hard work and diligence with adherence to the Teachings of Christ and inspiration from the Holy Spirit are there true possibilities for salvation and innovation.  


Are you thinking "WWJD, What would Jesus Do"?


Are you thinking about how to serve humanity (as a good steward should)?  


Are you thinking what the Lord would Think  about abuses, abuse of power and sinful behaviors in disrespect and dishonor?

Transfusion of Love and Peace 🕊️ Infusion of Hope 🕯️

Kindred,


We need a transfusion;


A transfusion of love and peace.  


Instead of the constant fill of nonsense in lies, demented power trips and hate which poisons our minds, hearts and souls; 


We need infusions of kindness, consideration, empathy, love and peace that cleanse our minds, hearts and souls. 


Without heartwarming care, we are left adrift in seas of loneliness vulnerable to any sham con artist offering anything and everything you want without work on the attributes you need.  


Isolation is a terrible loneliness and a slow withering on the vine of life.  


What is worse, there are those unholies intentionally trying to isolate, in order to manipulate, but to what end?  


Without inspiration and connections to humanity and the Holy Spirit, what are you left with? 


Endless cycles of superficial conquests of delusional power and abuses; acquisitions of material and power that helps no one (unless used to help humanity), not even the self;


Winning is not winning if the cost is the loss of your mind, heart and soul; and failures of every test of character.  


You can never truly be isolated with the Lord.  


The Holy Spirit can See everything and everyone; and is everywhere and can be in everyone and in you if you receive in humble gratitude.


Without connection to the holy, there is no relationship with the Lord or anyone.  


Isolation in self- selfish, delusional power trips and control of nonsense, selfish desires and nothing you can take with you when you die, is a sad and lonely place to be.  

 

Present yourself to the Lord.  


Connect to the Holy Spirit


And give of yourself to serving humanity.  


You will be surprised how much fellowship in love and peace you have, and hope and grace you will be able to receive. 


Before you can have infusion of Hope or transfusionsion of Love and Peace in the Lord's Grace, you must be in the mindset, heart set and soul set, to receive and connect (in fellowship).  


You can be isolated, alone or even in a group, in hate, delusion tripping on power and control and sins and abuses or not.  


The choice as always is up to you.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas 🎄

Take It Up With Your Conscience

Kindred,


Let's review prior conversation to "take it up with the Lord".  


Why would you take something up with the Lord?  


How to phrase the question without assigning false blame?


In a world of constant misdirection, misinformation, to mistrust or hate differences or other tribal loyalties, the blame-shifting, victim shaming, are at unbelievable mindless, heartless, soulless levels.   


Where do you stand?  


On the foundation of the Teachings of Jesus Christ, at the heart of Love and fellowship of the Holy Spirit or on the quicksand of Caesar, at the power trips of the powerful?  


Who controls your mind, heart and soul?  


The Lord does not control your mind, heart or soul, (or want to) because that is not the purpose of free will, the freedom to choose who you are and who you want to be.  


Being with the Holy Spirit is not giving up all sense of self or responsibility to the Lord as if the Lord is responsible for everything that happens when it is people that have the responsibility of stewardship.  


What can be taken up with the Lord then?  


Acts of God, not of man or person.  


The Lord created people.  


If you do not like differences between people, color of skin, gender, race ....then take it up with the Lord, because people do not self determine their color of skin, original gender or the family they are born into.  


It is determined by the Lord.  


The main point of the review is not to take up the issues, sins and problems of man and person up with the Lord, but to take it up with your conscience.  


In order to have a real and true relationship with the Lord, it must be based upon a clear conscience, not messed up by lies and deception of self and others.  


This holiday season, "Take it up with your conscience" before you "take it up with the Lord".

Public Health and Safety

Kindred,


The life you save might be your own.  


"Whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world."

            - Jerusalem Talmud, Sanhedrin 4:1 (22a) 


Yes, vaccine gives hope and will save lives, but meanwhile we must continue to do our part to stop the spread and save lives.  


Yes, people can choose to mask up or not; however, just like there are public safety laws when driving in obeying traffic lights and wear safety belts, public health laws in masking up during a pandemic should be common place.  


Smokers do not have the right to get other people sick from their second hand smoke; can get themselves sick, but do not have the right to get other people sick.  


The same goes for offering self up as host for potentially deadly contagion; do not have the right to infect other people or harm public welfare.


We need to uphold our standards of health and safety; and recognize the dangers of not having public health and safety.

Difference Between Forgiveness of Sin and Redemption

Kindred,


What is the difference between forgiveness of sin and redemption from sin?  


Describe the process between the two kinds of spiritual acts, forgiveness and redemption.  


When do you need to apply the process of forgiveness and when do need to apply the process of redemption?  


What happens when you do not forgive or do not redeem yourself?  


What are the consequences?  


The problem with mistaking one process for the other is that if you need to forgive or need redemption it never can be accomplished or achieved.  


If you are a victim, did you do anything wrong?  


Should you be blamed for the sins if the perpetrator(s) sinner(s)?  


Does forgiveness wipe away the crimes of sins, the injuries and harm (as if it never happened)?  


Who is actually offering the process of forgiveness, the victim or sinner?  


What happens with the sinner if the process stops at forgiveness (from the victim)?  


Will the sinner even be able to receive forgiveness without remorse or repentance?   


Believing that you have gotten away with sins or crimes, does not mean that there is redemption or accountability to the Lord.  


If unclean or unholy, then still would be unclean or unholy without redemption (even if forgiveness by victim; and there can be no forgiveness by the Lord without first confession of sin(s)).  


When living in sins and lies, will the sinner ever have standing with the Lord?   


Be careful of wolves in shepherd's clothing, because unholies have no moral authority or standing with the Lord to give absolution or forgiveness.  


And redemption cannot come from outside of the sinner; only the sinner can clean self up from the inside (just as those addicted to drugs, alcohol are the only ones able to get clean with help from AA, but first have to have to desire to do so).   


As with any process, it takes work in order to work through the process to achieve results.   


And must complete all the steps (stopping at one in the Twelve Step process, will not accomplish what is necessary in order to stop and fully recover) of redemption (must be completely clean).  


Therefore, what is the difference between forgiveness of sin and redemption from sin?  






Sunday, December 20, 2020

Answer

Kindred,


Do you remember your original purpose (assigned to you from the beginning by the Lord)?  


Few do remember; if not, do you bother to search and discover their purpose (assigned by the Lord) in the journey of life? 


Think back, what were your original attributes?  


Do they match who you are today?  


Did you grow into your purpose or out of it?  


Doctors take an oath to "do no harm"; 


Any person acting under the color of the law must "keep from harm"; 


And you, as children of the Lord must, not only, do no harm (by sinning) to self, original purpose and others (in abuses or hate), but keep from harm (no footholds in sins) to self, original purpose and others (let harm, abuses or hate happen); in order to be able to fulfill the purpose the Lord instilled in you from the beginning.  


Where are you in fulfilling the purpose the Lord originally meant for you?  


Answer:


How helpful are you to the service of humanity and the Lord?  


And what harm, if any, have you caused?

Are You Sure?

Kindred,


Not sure why some people delight in sins or delight in power trips and abuses.  


Hell is forever and no matter how unpleasant haters-sinners can make life for someone else, hell would be even worse for them and it's a forever sentence by the Lord.


It is hard enough for the unintentional bad to stay out of hell, let alone those with intent to commit sins, hate and abuses to escape deeper parts of hell.  


Ever heard of the expression "the road to hell is paved with good intentions"?


Hell is not a place you want to end up.  


"The Son of Man will send out his angels to gather up out of his Kingdom those who tempt people to sin and all others who do evil things, and they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where unholies will cry and gnash their teeth."

                                                - Matthew 13: 41-42


For those who end up in hell, "will be tormented with fire...and the smoke of the fire that torments them forever and ever.  There is no relief day or night (for anyone who feeds and worships the beast and has the mark)".   
  
                                             - Revelation 14:10-11


Clearly, hell is not a place you would want to end up, but some are hell-bent on going there and there is no talking them out of their path of destruction, self-destruction and damnation.  


The hellbound continue, each step of damnation, to delight in sins and abuses of power, flaunting the rules of the Lord in disobedience with disastrous consequences.


How many levels of hell are the hellbound at now?  


And are you sure you are bound for heaven, given what has transpired?


If not, change your path, reevaluate your life.  


If you need to, clean yourself up, repent and atone.   


Do not just talk the talk, but also walk the walk.  


Perhaps double check you have obeyed and adhered to the Teaching of Jesus Christ and the Commandments to love and respect the Lord and what belongs to the Lord.

Think Twice

Kindred,


Remember what you can and cannot take with you on Judgement Day.  


Will you be able to take your skin with you?  


Your money, politics or religion?  


What will you actually be Judged upon?  


Before you act, think twice; ponder upon what matters to the Lord.






Empathy Command

Kindred, 



"Do for others what you want them to do for you".                     

                                               - Matthew 7:12



What does the above scripture passage, the Golden Rule, mean?



Ultimately, the Rule commands you to have empathy for people.  



In order for you to "do for others what you want them to do for you", you have to have empathy, the ability to "put yourself in someone else's shoes" to understand where someone is coming from, from their perspective and point of view.  



A good double check is to follow the other half of the Golden Rule, called by some, the Silver Rule, "never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself."*  



Ask yourself how you would feel, if someone stole away what is yours or do to you, what you do not want in harm?



In other words, apply in empathy what you would want and would not want to see happen to yourself in others, the universal rule to having ethics and morality.  



Without empathy, you will never be able to understand what that person want or don't want or understand the Commandments and to have the keys to heaven.






P.s.

Whether the glass is half empty or half full, you still have to look upon the whole glass.  




*Quote from Confucius


Keys to Heaven

Kindred,




Would you please stop thinking in terms of power and control?  




What happens when human tragedy strikes?  




The young do not remember the reaction to 9/11, where the prevailing question in the Christian community was, "How could God let this happen?" 




Do you know what some religious leaders said in response to this question at the time?  




Instead of stating, "The Lord has nothing to do with the sins of man", excuses were made as if God was to blame for somehow losing control, thus letting the harm and tragedy happen.  




Are you aware from the beginning the Lord granted people freedom of will?




From the beginning with Adam and Eve, the Lord granted free will, but also commandment of what not to do - do not eat of the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  




But what did Adam and Eve choose to do?  




Nowhere does the Lord ever controls people's actions.  




Only Satan tempts or possesses to overtake in control, but never the Lord.   




The Lord will never demand or ask for control or diminish a person's empowerment of choice (and responsibility of stewardship), because the free choice to receive the Lord and obey or disobey Laws have always been up to the individual (person).  




On Judgement Day what will the Lord be Judging you on?  




Not on what the Lord is capable of in Forgiveness or Love, but on your own character in actions and deeds or misdeeds.   




The responsibility of stewardship of self and the world has always been incumbent upon your own self control and choices in freedom of will.  




When you blame (the Lord or someone else) and give up self control and responsibility (within your effective control) do you lose freedom of will and control (to tragedies, abusers, sins or Satan). 




Note, you will still be held responsible by the Lord for your own choices, your character or lack thereof, deeds or misdeeds, grace or sin(s).  




The keys to heaven are never in some form of power and control, not in taking or stealing from someone, what you posses in power or wealth, never in what the Lord can do for you, but in what you give in service in love and kindness, grace and deeds.    




"You know that the rulers of the heathen have power over them....however, this is not the way it shall be among you.  If you want to be great, you must be servant of the rest ---like the Son of Man, who did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life to redeem many people."  



                                         - Matthew 20: 25-28

A Dangerous Practice For the Soul

Kindred,


Blame-shifting is a dangerous practice for the soul.  


Why?  


Because some people cannot tell the difference between acceptable or unacceptable; and even holy or unholy.  


For example, there is a difference between blaming not turning in one's homework on the dog eating it and blaming not wearing a mask during a real pandemic on a fake hoax.  


The above example is what kind of example? acceptable or unacceptable blame; or holy or unholy blame?


Do you know which kind?


Blame-shifting becomes dangerous when the shifting the blame is based upon sinful behaviors.  


Sin(s) corrupts the soul; leads to damnation and dishonor.  


In order for redemption to occur, the sinner must take responsibility for one's own actions by confessing, repenting and atoning sin(s).  


For the sinner, there is no chance of salvation without redemption.  


In addition, shifting of blame actually gives up power over self control and the blamer becomes smaller for it. 


The replacing of the void of self determinate with hate, grandiosity or abuse of power does not regain sense of real self until one fully take responsibility of self and own actions.  


If you want salvation, you must have best practices in the holy and avoid dangerous practices that can lead to forever damnation.  




Why Blame?

Kindred,


Why blame?  


The pathology of blame involves running away from one's own fears and insecurities of ego and failures in life and character; and then in cowardice turn to blaming others.  


When the coward-incompetent fails, failures are projects onto a scapegoat, blame-shifting, in order to avoid facing one's own failures or incompetence. 


Blame-shifting is a misdirection; despirate attempt to shift the focus away from the failures and the incompetence.  


The added aggravation occurs when the blame-shifting is followed by another projection of retaliation upon the victim scapegoat as if the scapegoat did something wrong upon the hatred of self-loathing from the blamer.  


What make it insidious is that there are always something to find fault in or nitpick in someone else or in life in general, after all no one is perfect and life well-lived never runs smoothly.  


In today's sometimes shallow vanity, attacking a women's looks and weight or a man's hair and strength tends to get traction in misdirection.  


Also activating and aggravating malcontent or hate tends to get traction, because those that are malcontent are already vulnerable to negative circumstances and negative suggestions, because already in a negative state of mind.  


Tearing down someone else and make as miserable and downhearted makes the blamer feel less alone in his or her failures or if grandiose act like he or she has the same standing as the person trying to knock and bring down.  


In the end, the utter failure of the blamer to face one's own fears and insecurities of ego and failures in life and charactert leads to the cycle of continuous and escalating failures; 


Because nothing is learned from failures or corrected in the blamer, failures accumulates and so does the escalating vicious attacks in blame and hate projected upon scapegoats;


Because ultimately, the problems and the agent of failures and incompetence are still with the blamer and the problem will never be addressed or solved in scapegoats.  


Nothing gets accomplished by the blamer and nothing really happens except blame, misdirection, malcontent and hate.

How You Face Your Tests of Character

Kindred,


What if are you see is darkness?  


No light at the end of the tunnel?


Unless you end up in hell, this too shall pass.  


Take a leap of faith; 


Take it one breath at a time;


If you have sinned, nothing is stopping you from cleaning yourself up, confessing your sin, repenting and atoning.  


You need only to try to be a better person, work towards good character and best practices to make it into purgatory.


From there, work to be able to receive the Holy Spirit, to do no harm and have a purity of heart to see the Lord and Heaven's Gate.  


The tragedies and challenges of life are but tests of character, rise or fall, to every experience or occasion, then rise higher into enlightenment or pick yourself up and endure.


In the end, we are end up at the same place of Judgement.  


That Judgement depends upon the Lord; 


The ultimate outcome depends upon you and how you choose to live your life and face your tests of character.

Lord's Laws and the Teachings of Jesus Christ

Kindred,


Yes, the Love of the Holy Spirit is always there for you, but only if you can receive it.  


If your heart is filled with hate, aggression, jealousy, doubt or hopelessness, then you cannot receive or fill your heart with the Love of the Lord.  

 

When your so-called friend and minister is forsaking the Lord's Laws and the Teachings of Jesus Christ in sins, inappropriate behaviors and hypocrisy, then obviously not walking the walk or receiving the Holy Spirit.


Let us review again the scripture passages, 


"Not everyone who calls me 'Lord, Lord' will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but those who do what my Father in heaven wants them to do.

When the Judgement Day comes, many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord!  In your name we spoke God's message, by your name we drive out many demons and performed many miracles!'.  

Then I will say to them, 'I never knew you.  Get away from me you wicked people!'

                                                  - Matthew 7: 21-23


Jesus is talking to believers, not non-believers.  


What does the Lord want people to do?  


What is the covenant?  


Will the wicked (Unholies) despite their beliefs or power to "perform miracles" be able to enter heaven?  


"Remember that as long as heaven and earth last, not the least point nor the smallest detail of the Law will be done away with - not until the end of all things. 


So then , whoever disobeys even the least important of the commandments and teaches others to do the same, will be the least in the Kingdom of heaven.  On the other hand, whoever obeys the Law and teaches others to do the same, will be great in the Kingdom of heaven.


I will 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."

                                                     - Matthew 5: 18-20

Based upon the Lord's Judgement, Truth and Laws

Kindred,


"The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains,

The world, and those who dwell in it.". 

                                                 Psalms 24:1


What do you think happens when sexual abusers violate what belongs to the Lord?  


Or when thieves steal, pillage plunder and take what belongs to the Lord?  


The Lord's Judgement is based upon the Ethics and Standards of the Lord, not man, not people.  


It is up to people to live up to the Lord's Measurement, not the other way around.  


Ultimately, the Lord's Judgement is not based upon what you believe, but upon the Lord's Truth and Laws


Haters can believe in the power of skin which cannot be taken with them at death on Judgement Day; 


Abusers can believe in the supremacy of superpower and control, abuse of power, which still cannot escape death or overpower the Judgement of the Lord; 


Sinners can believe in salvation in forced forgiveness without confession of sins, repentance or atonement, but it does not mean that this belief is true or based in any kind of reality (of the Lord's Judgement).  


What will the Lord be Judging? 


Your beliefs?  Your thinking?  Your feelings?  Your looks?  Your power?  


Or where your beliefs, thinking, feelings, behaviors form and determine the color of your heart, soul and character?  


Where do you think you are currently in the Lord's Measurement of your heart, soul and character (based upon the Lord's Judgement and Laws)?





Real Sacrileges in Damnation Dishonor and Disgrace

Kindred,


Sad; it feels like your so-called friends have allowed for sexual abuses and other abuses to  continuously occur again on a daily basis.  


Sexual abuses are among the most heinous crimes, crimes against humanity and the Lord.  


Not only are there unholy violations against the victim, but sacrileges perpetrated against what belongs to the Lord.  


Aiding and abetting in crimes against humanity is also a crime and damnable offenses.


Continued and continuous failures to protect from harm and abuses of power are also crimes. 


The grooming of people and children into Sodom and Gomorrah-like conditions are all damnable.


What you allow to occur today, sowed in abuses and crimes against humanity or not, will determine how your children behave and your destiny with the Lord or not.


When you sweep heinous and damnable offenses, sins and crimes under the rug then perpetrators are able to commit crimes and sins over and over again.  


And if ever on the path of redemption, these unholy sinners will have to confess, repent and atone for each count of their sins and crimes in order to be fully redeemed.  


Is it even possible before the Unholies' death on Judgement Day for them to be presentable before the Lord? 


Don't know, but it will never happen if there is no effort to fully confess, repent and atone for the continuous sins and crimes against humanity.  






Shammers and Liars

Shame, shame, shame-  Those that use parasites, contagions and other forms of harm, especially sexual abuse are nothing but parasites and co...
