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.”

It’s fear that separates us

Our Westie, Calley, died a few weeks ago. We took a trip to northern Wisconsin and upon our return found a little orange and white kitten, about 2 or 3 months old hanging around in our back yard. It was wasted away and starving. We live in a town neighborhood with neighbors all around. The kitten may have come from one of them. They may have even mistreated the kitten causing it to leave. My wife feeds the little kitten, but it is deathly afraid of us. It won’t allow us to come near it. It runs away. It never hisses or bows up. It just runs away if we get too close.

I believe my wife would take it in, even though we have an all-white 6 year old cat already. My wife has tried to coax it into the house. It’s easy to see that it wants to come in, but fear keeps it away.

It seems some non-Christians are the same way. They may take benefits from a Christian charity, but they’re afraid to come into the Church and be a part of the family. Maybe they’ve had a bad experience at Church before, or maybe it’s just because of their upbringing, making a Christian family alien to them, and, therefore, something to be feared.

The kitten would be much better, healthier and happier life if he would stop fearing us and come in. And those who stand outside the Church will have a much better life, the forgiveness of their sins (as all of us need), and the promise of ever-lasting life. They would be better off if they simply stopped fearing.

I believe my wife will one day convince the kitten to come in and accept her loving. And it’s up to us Christians to be kind to those who fear us, hoping that one day they will come into the church and accept God’s love into their lives. We as Christians cannot judge or condemn anyone without being judged and condemned. It is God’s law.

Two thousand years ago, everyone had to be taught the words of Jesus. There was no Bible. People accepted Jesus as their Saviour as they were. One minute they may have been a pagan, and the next minute they were a child of God. It was then, as a new Christian, that they began to learn of Christ until they one day became Christ-like. It’s the same today, so don’t be afraid. We are all trying to learn more and to grow more. So, come in, and let us grow, together
The above blog was written 2 years ago. The kitten did come in. We named him Sammy, and every time I go to bed he has to get under the covers with me. He’s still a little skiddish about some things, but I like the way he puts his arm around my neck and hides his head underneath my chin when he sleeps. He’s replaced his fear with love. Something we all should do.

Where is the Kingdom of God?

Jesus said to his followers in Luke 17:21 “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

We can be given “The Kingdom of God” in this life, but when we pass from this life we enter into “The Kingdom of Heaven“. He lives in us when we have a physical body. We live in Him through our spiritual body. The Apostle Paul wrote, “To be absent in the body is to be present in Christ.”

The creation as described in Genesis 2:7 , “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being>”

God breathed life into Adam. He breathed his spirit into Adam. Adam was born of the Spirit of God. And Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden walking with God, talking with God, relying on God for their every need and trusting in God to watch over them and protect them in every circumstance. They obeyed the will of God, until they became so proud of the perfect life they were living, that they began to think that they deserved it. They began to question the authority of God, and take authority upon themselves. They said, “God said not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge, but we think that, since everything is so perfect, this little thing of eating of a forbidden tree won’t hurt anything.” The moment that they obeyed their own will and desire, and rejected God’s will, they were separated from God. They no longer loved God unconditionally, and that bond was broken. The opposite of love is fear, and the first thing they did was to fear. Genesis 3:10, “So he (Adam) said, “I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked and I hid myself.”

The Garden of Eden is the place where man relies on God for all his needs, where he trusts God to lead him into all goodness, and, most of all, where he loves God with all his heart, mind, soul and strength. The Kingdom of God, that Jesus spoke of, is our own personal Garden of Eden, where we have a perfect loving relationship with God. It is a relationship based on Love, and activated through repentence. We must repent for our sins against ourselves and others, and we must forgive others for the wrongs done against us. When we forgive, we are forgiven, and the sins of our former lives are completely erased and forgotten. We are a new person without the baggage of our past.

II Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”

Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3:5 “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Jesus said that we must be born again, in the spirit. Adam was born in the spirit and lived in the Garden of Eden. He walked with God, he talked with God, he relied on God, he trusted in God. and he loved God unconditionally. We have been born of the world. Only by being born again in the spirit of God can we live in perfect harmony with Him. Jesus called this The Kingdom of God. I believe it is our own personal Garden of Eden until we reach the eternal Garden of God that we call Heaven.
It may be possible to be saved by simply joining a church. But the relationship God wants with us, is the relationship He had with Adam, before Adam disobeyed. In order to enter into that kind of a relationship with God, we must be born again of water and the spirit, love and forgive. Do you want to walk with God, or will you take your chances hanging somewhere in the back of the line? I can tell you one thing: The first time you hear God’s voice, it is an experience you will never forget. And He’s waiting to hear from you now.

Unto us a child is born, Unto us a son is given

Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Isaiah wrote these words approximately seven hundred years before Jesus was born. Most people understood these words as prophesying the coming of a Messiah, but since that generation died without having seen the Messiah, people began to doubt the words. Today we understand that this verse was telling us that a human child would be born in which the Son of God would be given for the salvation of mankind.

We not only understand the prophecy, but we, also, enjoy the salvation that it foretold. We think of Christmas as a joyous time, in which we received the Son of God as our promised Messiah, but was it all joy for God, too? I believe it was a bittersweet experience for God. I believe it was joyous for Him to see His plan put in motion, to see His forgiveness, healing, reconciliation, salvation and eternal life for man about to be offered to his creation. At the same time, He was sending His only begotten son into the hands of barbarians, that would beat him, whip him, humiliate him, and finally nail him to a cross until he died. We can give thanks, that His love for mankind was so strong, that it overcame the sacrifice He and His son would suffer.

Because of His great love for each one of us, we must never be lukewarm in our relationship with Him. We must love Him with all our heart, all our mind, all our soul, and all of our strength, just as His Son Commanded us. And we must love our neighbors as we love ourselves. God is love, and we must show our love in everything that we do – at Christmas and every day throughout the year.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that those who believe in him should not perish, but have ever-lasting life.”

Left wing globalists try using school kids as pawns to disarm America

The well-funded and well-organized left-wing globalists are now trying to use school children as pawns to disarm American citizens. Some statistics are worth noting.
There were 64,000 drug overdoses in America in 2016. There were approximately 450 mass shootings. There were 36,252 gun deaths from gang assaults, domestic shootings, accidents, self defense and suicides with less than 2% mass shootings.
My point is this: With each new generation of teenagers experimenting with drugs that claim 64,000 lives a year, are these teenagers in a position to lecture grown ups in right-and-wrong?
Sounds a little bit naive and hypocritical. Come back in a few years, when your brain catches up to your mouth.
To the left-wing globalists who want to destroy God, morality and freedom, I ask that you organize and show compassion for the 64,000 overdose deaths if you really want to make America Great Again.

Will they come to me now?

I watch my people blindly flailing at life with the tools of my enemy. They harm others, hurt them, and hate everything. My tears feel like rivers of lava rolling down my checks, and still I watch. I watch as they destroy the dream I had for them, and my heart feels as if it was being ripped from my chest. They create the pain and I suffer for it. Those that lead them have tried to obliterate me from history. They whipped me, beat me, insulted and cursed me. And then they drove the heavy nails through my hands and my feet. They nailed me to a cross and then raised the cross until it fell into the hole and jarred me to near unconsciousness. And still they jeered and humiliated me, as if the pain were my enemy. Even those who hated me did not understand. I took the pain for myself, so that my people could once again live free. I welcomed the pain. It was the key that freed my people.
Now as I lie here on this cold stone in a sealed tomb, I wonder: Will my people understand now? Will they accept their freedom and live for themselves and for their God that created them? Will my people finally be free? Tomorrow I will rise and leave this tomb. When my people see me resurrected, will they believe? Will they follow me in love and leave the hate, greed and bitterness behind them? Will they come to me, now?

Matthew 11:28-29King James Version (KJV)
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

What would love do?

A popular saying a few years ago was, “What would Jesus do?” It is a valid question that allows us to compare our actions to the benchmark of Jesus, but it requires interpretation. When you compare yourself to Jesus, you’re comparing yourself with a person and a personality. It’s easy to bring in judgement to justify what we already feel or how we want to act or react. The question of measuring our actions against someone or something else is easier when we remove the emotions, judgements or interpretations, and compare ourselves to an absolute value that our minds can’t manipulate and rationalize.
We should, instead, compare ourselves to an absolute, and unbending value. God is love. Love is static and eternal. It never changes for conditions or circumstances. God, or love, was the same yesterday, today and forever. We should always ask ourselves if our actions or our reactions to people is truly based on love and compassion for that person, or do we want vindication for ourselves? If we want punishment for another person, we will reap punishment for ourselves. That is sin, or harming ourselves, and harming ourselves is against God’s will for us.
Jesus said, “love your enemies, bless those that curse you, and pray for those that who despitefully use you and persecute you.” When we concentrate on that verse, we know what Jesus would do.
But if you have trouble remembering and deciphering everything Jesus said, then just ask yourself, “What would love do?”, which is a more direct way of asking what God or Jesus would do. The next question is “What are you going to do?”.

The emptiness within us

We were all born with a void within us, and we spend the rest of our lives trying to fill it. As children, we run and play. We do all the things children do, yet we’re not satisfied, and many times we end up crying, wanting something, but we don’t know what. As adults we gather our network of friends around us, we work our jobs, run our errands and then work around the house – cooking cleaning, repairing or maintaining. But we still feel unfulfilled. We’re lacking something. We go to the TV to be entertained, or we go to the computer, surf and trying to find something that will fill the emptiness we feel within us. We try drugs, nicotine, caffeine or food, and still, we’re not filled. Then one day, God sends a messenger – a neighbor, a friend, someone from work, or a relative. They tell us that each one of us has been born with an empty space within us that can only be filled by God. It is a spiritual place that needs to be filled with the spirit. Jesus said, “If any one love me, they will keep my commandments, and God will love them, and He and I will come and make our abode with them.”
Some of us will ignore the advice. Some of us will listen and it will cause us to think. God loves us, and He pursues us to become His child. He knows that only He can save us from ourselves and an eternity in hell. He sends us messages – through TV programs, through examples around us, through blog sites, and by personal messenger. Listen to the message. It has the secret to filling that void within you. It has the secret to eternal love and joy. Listen to it, and be filled.

Is Jesus the Messiah?

The book “God, Reward and Punishment: Are they real? by A. Mealer. lists all the prophecies about the Messiah. Isaiah 53 describes the Messiah. Psalm 22 describes the crucifixion and was partially quoted by Jesus as he hung on the cross. Christianity and Christians are followers of Christ, or the Messiah. No one has ever been called Christ or Messiah except Jesus. The apostle Peter said that Jesus was “the Messiah, the Son of God.”, and Jesus told him that, “flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but the Father.” The whole of the Bible teaches us that “whatever we do to another, it will be done to us.” We plant a seed and we reap its harvest. The attempted sacrifice of Isaac was the seed. The sacrifice of Jesus is the harvest. The whole Torah teaches of the coming Messiah. Reject Jesus if you will, but He is the Christ, the Messiah. The proof is everywhere, and not simply an unfounded assumption. You need to research what you say, or risk being damned by what you say. There are consequences or rewards for our actions and words. Be careful.
The disciples were shocked at the crucifixion of Jesus, but they didn’t have to search scriptures to explain it. Jesus met two disciples, after his resurrection, on the road to Emmaus and explained the prophecies about himself in the TORAH to them. Also, Josephus, the Jewish historian for the Romans, wrote that Jesus was crucified and resurrected. Like all prophecies, they were encrypted enough to be obvious after the fact, but concealed enough to prevent that generation from knowing the full story. If they had known, they would not have crucified Jesus, there would have been no sacrifice for our sins, there would have been no resurrection, and our salvation would never have happened. God allows us to know what we need to know, when we need to know it. We still don’t know all the secrets of God, but His plan for our salvation has been fully revealed in the life, death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus.
Don’t use conjecture. Use the facts to determine your future.
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes unto the Father, except by me.”

In Ecstasy or in Agony?

People ask, “What if, when you die, there is no heaven?” Or one could ask, “What if there is a heaven?”
If I live my life for God, I enjoy the benefits of living a good life and avoiding the pitfalls and perils of following Satan’s course. If I, then, die and there is no heaven, I will be ended without any further thoughts or feelings. I won’t suffer, because of it. If, however, there is a heaven, then I, the angels, and my family and friends that have gone on before me will be rejoicing, singing the praises of God and dancing in the spirit forever.
It will be a different story for those who refuse to love God and live for Him. If there is no heaven, they, also, will be ended and without any further thoughts or feelings. If, however, there is a heaven, they will be shocked that they had wasted their lives, thinking it was the only life; and they will be in agony, knowing that they had destroyed their chances for happiness or hope during their lives on earth, and for all eternity.
As you can see, those who live for themselves cannot win, but those who live for God cannot lose. Have you chosen between ecstasy and agony? The choice seems pretty easy.

When “I” is not enough

Most people seek to “find themselves”. Or rather, they look for their “comfortable niche” in life. They have a circle of friends where someone knows the answer to any problem. They consider themselves good-looking, intelligent, physically strong, and able to handle anything that comes against them. It’s a good feeling.

But sometimes we find ourselves in a predicament that seems to have no answer. The world doesn’t always cooperate with our outlook on life. Sometimes we can carry a seemingly successful philosophy of life until the whole world seems to collapse around us. We push the envelope until it begins to rain, and then the envelope dissolves. It could be a serious illness. It could be divorce, or a loss of income. It could be financial ruin. it could even be an addiction, or that the season of negative decisions has produced a harvest of destruction.

Somewhere in our lives, we will realize that we don’t have all the answers, but we know who does. We’ll realize that we have limitations to our physical strength, and that we can’t control the world, or even those around us; but we know who is all-powerful, and who controls all things. One day we’ll realize that one person alone cannot take on the world without being defeated. Satan controls this world, and his goal is to tear down and destroy each and everyone of us, in one form or another. One day we’ll realize that if we are to get out of this world alive, we have to have the omnipotent and omniscient God who loved us enough to send His Son to save us.

Someday we’ll stop seeking our elusive “self”. Someday we’ll come to seek God. Someday we’ll realize our only strength is in Him. It is in Him that our power lies. That is where our life is and will be forever. So don’t try to find yourself or rely on self to fend off the world. You’ll be defeated. Find Jesus. Find yourself in Him and in His plan for you. He is the true renewal and resurrection of life. Seek the light, and find life. Seek God and find love. The time for reality and self-fulfillment is now; and it won’t be found within us unless we ask Him to live within us and to empower us to fight the world and win.

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