The Lord’s Prayer

Is the Lord’s Prayer first and foremost a prayer for spiritual power? When asked where the Kingdom of God was, Jesus replied that it is within us. So, when We pray, “Thy Kingdom come”, aren’t we really asking that God’s kingdom be established within us as Jesus said. And when we pray, “Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven,” aren’t we praying that His love, forgiveness, and healing should be manifested through us to the rest of the world?

Jesus referred to bread as the word of God many times. So, when we pray, “give us this day our daily bread”, aren’t we asking for God’s word. Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them with your truth. Your word is truth.” We are, then, asking to be sanctified through His word.

Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,” is easy to understand. Jesus made it clear many times that we could not be forgiven unless we forgave others, and in forgiving, then we are forgiven.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” seems plain enough. We are asking not to be tempted into sin, or delivered into Satan’s bondage.

Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and all these things will be added unto you.” I believe The Lord’s Prayer has all to do with obtaining all our spiritual needs from God, and when we achieve that, all our physical or earthly needs will be met.

Paul wrote that, “In the latter days, men will be holding on to a form of Godliness, but denying its true power.” I believe that the bulk of Christianity has been put off by the antics of those who want, but only pretend, to have the baptism of the Holy Spirit. For that reason many in Christianity shun anything spiritual, and only hold on to the promise of salvation.

I, too, believe that some people, in their quest for the spirit, simply pretend, in hopes that it will one day be real. But, I, also, know that you cannot enter into a spiritual relationship with God, without tears – tears of happiness, tears of shame, and tears of thanksgiving. Let all of Christianity, then, kneel before the throne of God in tears of praise for our Creator and our Redeemer. Let us all receive His spiritual power and blessings as He promised. And may the world be blessed by Him through us.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

Proof of man’s spirit

Pure evolutionists believe that man is simply made up of mind and body – an electrically charged mass of flesh. They believe that the brain is the mind, and that there is no spirit or soul, and that thoughts cannot exist outside of the physical. Again they’ve fallen short of understanding mankind.

How do we explain the mind working outside of the body in an out-of-body experience that some people have? How do we explain near-death experiences where the person may be outside of the body in an operating room, observing and hearing everything that goes on, even though their body is clinically dead lying on the operating table? How do we explain near-death experiences where the person is transported to heaven or hell, depending on their former lives, and able to think, meet  people, sees, feels and hears their surroundings, while doctors or EMTs work frantically to revive their dead physical bodies in this dimension?

It seems that, even though the body and  the conscious mind require  a brain, the spirit or soul of a man or woman does not, and exists outside of the physical body or physical dimensions. It is for this reason that a person must be aware and nurture their spirit or soul in preparation for an eternal future in heaven. Evolutionists and their physical brains lead us away from God and toward destruction. Our spirit or soul is concrete evidence of an eternal future with God, and we need only seek Him.

Knock and the door will be opened unto you. Ask and ye shall be given. Seek and ye shall find.”

Do not follow the destroyer. Follow the Creator.

What is love?

What is love? The Bible says that “God is love”. It doesn’t say that God loves, or that God is loving. It says that God is love. The attributes of God is creating, giving life, sustaining life, protecting life, forgiving and erasing mistakes, healing, encouraging, providing security, instilling worthiness, and promoting truth. All these things are the product of love, and all these things are a product of God. Love or God, then, is not simply an emotion, but a person and many actions. Love is personal and all-consuming. But love is not a personal thing, that we keep from others. It is a thing to be shared. We share it when we want goodness for another. We share it when we revel in the success of another. We share it when we share in another’s joy and happiness. We share it when we see contentment, security and satisfaction in another. We see it when we see a smile, or hear laughter. We see it when we love others. And we see it when we share God’s love with others.
It sometimes seems that love is complicated. That’s because everything good comes from love. Everything good comes from God. But the formula is simple: “Love God with all you heart, mind, soul and strength; and love your neighbor as you love yourself”. And “goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life.”

Are we required to do anything?

We, especially in the western hemisphere, have been lulled into a false sense of security. We watch movies, TV etc. and no matter what the hero or heroine face, they overcome it and live happily ever after – and we didn’t have to do anything. The main character took care of everything and won.

We have been inadvertently programmed to believe that someone else is going to take care of things and we just have to sit back and enjoy the story. We don’t even feel that we have to vote. America has been here for hundreds of years and our ability to prosper has been guaranteed for all that time, thanks to others who voted, or who fought and died to maintain our freedom.

The Church is the same. We sit back and enjoy the sermon, and don’t worry about a thing. The Church has been here for thousands of years and our ability to worship has been guaranteed all that time, thanks to the martyrs and the evangelists who fought to maintain our freedom of religion.

Jesus didn’t tell us to sit back while he takes care of everything. He said, “Go ye into all the world making disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.” Then he said, “And, lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”

Yes, this world is our “obstacle course”. We have to go through it and not sit on the sidelines. We need to go through it with the goal in mind to be strengthened and emboldened to meet every obstacle that comes against us. God has a spot for us in His grand scheme of things. It is up to us to be strong enough and determined enough to bring honor to Him as we fill the spot that He entrusted to us. A good player never sits on the sidelines at practice or at game time.

Everything will be all right, if we work to make it right. And remember, He is always with us.

Why do we give praise?

We must remember that what we do to others will be done to us. If we praise others, people will praise us. We can’t heap empty praise on another, or the praise we receive will be empty and meaningless. We must be honest and sincere in our praises to others for their traits or achievements. This way others will find those things in you that are worthy of praise. Even if you were unworthy of praise before you praised someone else, God will lift you up to a place higher than you were before. So honestly finding worthiness in others can actually build worthiness in you.
As Christians we have an advantage. It is not always possible to find praiseworthy people in our circle of acquaintances, but we have a God that is always worthy of our love and praise. We must not have false Gods with false attributes or else we will live in empty promises and attributes. And so we find in the Bible the commandment not to have any Gods before our God Jehovah. And that we are to love our God with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength. In so doing, we will become first in God’s sight and our power and attributes will continue to grow as we acknowledge Him and His majesty. Yes, we have an advantage. Take advantage of it.
“1 Peter 5:6-9New American Standard Bible (NASB)
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 [a]But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your [b]brethren who are in the world.

Liberalism Was Good

There was a time when liberalism was good for America. The early tycoons took advantage of their absolute power by working their workers 7 days a week and 10 or more hours a day. Tennessee Ernie Ford recorded the song “Sixteen Tons” , in which contained the words, ” St Peter, I can’t go. I owe my soul to the company store.” Blacks were not the only slaves in America at that time. Any common laborer was enslaved to their jobs. The only difference was that whites could go to a different town or state and offer themselves up for enslavement to those paying their meager wages.
Liberalism wasn’t just good for the work place. Liberalism brought in social security retirement, medicaire and medicaid and prescription programs.
Liberalism was good, but like any good thing, the radicals took over and pretended to be an extension of that which was good. Now the new radicals demand that we open our borders to people who have sworn to destroy us and our way of life. They demand that only left-wing radicalism can be heard. They demand that every form of anti-morality becomes the law of the land. Their demands, ironically, will lead to re-enslavement and destruction of the people – just the opposite of the goal of original liberalism. The left-wing media and politicians have twisted the truth 190° in order to cause good-hearted people to destroy themselves., while thinking that they are making the world a better place.
It’s time to reassess labels and determine who and what you actually support. It’s time to use your God-given intellect instead of false and misleading slogans.

Hollywood Power

Hollywood has long been a bastion of left-wing liberalism and communism, probably taking its roots from prewar Europe, where the people were divided between communism and democracy. After the war, when the threat of communism was realized, Hollywood came under scrutiny from our government, resulting in the black-listing of suspected communists; much like the black-balling of conservatives from TV after the FCC took program production away from sponsors, and gave production to the private sector in 1963.

Part of the Hollywood power broker’s obsession with liberalism probably comes from tradition. Their fathers and forefathers were liberal in Europe , therefore they must carry on the tradition. Another reason for the promotion of left-wing ideals, is greed. These power brokers have amassed millions and billions of dollars plying their trade. They may feel guilty, but rather than unselfishly giving away their wealth (power) to charity, they use their influence to force others to lower their standard of living to support a state run by luxury-loving bureaucrats. Power and wealth to the few on the backs of the suffering masses.

The movie and TV actors, also, want a share of the pie. It doesn’t take them long to realize that embracing left wing causes will merit favor from the power brokers. Using drugs, rejecting family and moral values ensures that they will be given better access to the wealth through roles that they obtain; or that once they get out of rehab, they will be taken care of.

So, please don’t sit in a 40 room mansion and tell me to lower my standard of living to a one bedroom apartment or home. And stars, don’t tell me you support something, when you’re just sucking up to the boss for a better role and more money.

Wouldn’t it be better to build upon a firm foundation already established, and use our influence to teach moral and ethical values, so that America can feed the world in emergencies, and teach the down trodden how to support themselves?

Jihad is facing us. If we allow America to be destroyed, our enemies will ensure that we are completely destroyed. And then where will our lofty goals be? Great power can create, or it can destroy. There is a better way to deal with our problems today. I hope Hollywood wakes up and finds it.
I’m praying that they will . . . for all our sake’s. Today, like never before, all America must stand together to bring about justice and equality for all through prosperity and love.

America Under Attack

Joseph Stalin, who was responsible for the deaths of 50 million people in order to establish and maintain communism, once said, “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas America will collapse from within.”

Think. Isn’t the left-wing higher education institutions, our politicians and the media doing exactly what Joseph Stalin wanted done to America. Many in this country say that this administration’s policies have failed, due to the harm it has done to every area of our lives and government. But has it failed or has this administration been tremendously successful in furthering the policies of a Communist dictator? Think! And check out http://www.agendadocumentary.com

Daniel Webster Webster served in the House of Representatives for 10 years (representing New Hampshire), in the Senate for 19 years (representing Massachusetts), and was appointed the Secretary of State under three presidents. He said, “If we and our posterity shall be true to the Christian religion, if we and they shall live always in the fear of God and shall respect His commandments, if we and they shall maintain just moral sentiments and such conscientious convictions of duty as shall control the heart and life, we may have the highest hopes of the future fortunes of our country; and if we maintain those institutions of government and that political union, …it (our country) will have no decline and fall. It will continue to prosper.
“But if we and our posterity reject religious institutions and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution which holds us together, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”

It is time to awaken, America. Everything is not going to be all right, unless we make it all right. And nothing will be all right until we vote the left-wing liberals out of power. I don’t want to oppose anyone, but our God, our religion, our morality, our constitution, our freedom and nation are under attack. As a Christian and as an American who has grown up and lived enjoying the blessings that this great land affords, I have no other choice, – not to oppose – but to support the foundation and beliefs that made this nation great. Unless we wake up, use our God-given capacity to think for ourselves, and do what is right for us and our nation, we won’t have to wait for death to experience hell.

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion. It cannot be shaken; it remains forever.” Psalm 125:

Fall on your knees

It’s amazing how good Christians can put so much importance in church ritual and activities, and ignore the truly important commandments to love God with every fiber of our being, and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

I heard a story telling the difference between horses and donkeys as they defend themselves against a predator (the church’s predator is Satan). The horses will form a circle with their heads inside the circle facing each other, and then they use their hind legs to kick at the approaching predator. Donkeys, also, form a circle, but with their heads facing out toward the predator, leaving their hind quarters inside the circle to kick each other to death.

Christians, stop acting like jackasses, and face each other, loving your God, above all things, with all your heart, mind, soul and strength, and loving your brothers and sisters as much or more than you love yourself. The Church was not created to be a place that we use to entertain ourselves. It is the place where we worship and exalt our One True God. Our focus should not be outside the church, but inside. Unless we focus on the love of God, and focus our love on Him, we are just an empty facsimile of the person God wants us to be, and the person His Son died to empower us to be.

Words in the song “Oh, Holy Night” says “Fall on your knees. Hear the angel’s voices.” Yes, fellow Christians, fall on your knees, spend time on your knees. Only then will we be empowered, our church empowered, and our nation, once again, will be empowered with the love of God and with our love for Him and all mankind. Fall on your knees. Focus on Him, get in touch with your spirit and then hear the Angels singing in your heart and in your church.

God sent the Spirit of Truth or Holy Spirit to instruct us, comfort us, guide us and empower us. He’s inside of us, trying to be heard above the clamor of the world. We need to take some quiet time to listen to him and allow Him to bring fulfillment and completion to our lives. He alone has all the answers for this world and the next; and all we have to do is to be humble enough to fall on our knees, to focus on our Father, and to focus on the needs of one another. It’s easy. Where are you focused – inside the circle of love, or on the world outside?

Do all religions worship one God?

“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:1-3

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:”
Mark 12:29

And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” Deut 10:12, Matt 22:37, Mark 12:30, Luke 10:27

John 17:17 ” Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth”

Would God lie? Would He tell one group of people, that there is a caste system with seven tiers of worthiness? Would He then tell another group, “Galatian 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”? Would He tell one group of people that women are less than men, and have no rights or freedoms, after He tells us that all are equal? Would He tell one group to hate and kill those who disagree with them, and tell another group, Matthew 5:44 “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”? Would He tell one group to go into the world and offer them salvation, Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”; and then tell another group to conquer all nations and force them, under threat of death, to become disciples?

God would not lie to and mislead one group of people and give truth to another. God’s “word is truth“. And “the Lord thy God is One Lord“. God “is the same yesterday, today and forever.” There is but one God. Because of the isolation, in ages past, from the rest of world, many groups have sought God, knowing that He was there, yet have not learned of the true God, relying on men’s interpretation of who He should be.

The God I serve is called Jehovah, which is quite simply an Anglicized form of Yehovah,” and preserves the four Hebrew consonants YHVH, probably pronounced Yahweh. He has been recorded since the beginning of time. He caused a nation to be born out of Abraham. Five hundred years later, after the nation of Israel had multiplied to over a million people, He gave us the Ten Commandments through Moses and created a spiritual bond with man. Fifteen hundred years later, He sacrificed His Son for the forgiveness of our sins, so that we could be reconciled to Him and have eternal life. He didn’t demand that we be perfect in our works, but simply asks us to love Him as He loves us.

Christianity is love, not hate. It is forgiveness, not condemnation. It is gained through love, not works. It is not something we have to work for to obtain. It is a gift from God.

As a Christian I don’t judge or condemn anyone for not believing the same way that I do. But as Jesus commanded us, I do hold my hand out to others, so that they can find what I have found In Him. Above all things, I pray that you find love.
