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.”

Unexpected Returns

Unexpected Returns

Why do things that are supposed to give us so much pleasure really give us pain and suffering? And why do things that are supposed to be boring give us so much joy and satisfaction? The secret is not in its advertised purpose, but in the intent in which we use it.

Alcohol and drugs are supposed to relax us, give us a sense of euphoria, and relieve our tension. The actual intent of the person who use these things,is to take a recess from life and to temporarily die from the world. The intent is to rebel against one’s parents or society in general. Rebellion, also, carries with it a lack of respect and concern for other’s feelings, the possible problems for others, or long term results of their act. The person sets themselves up to experience loneliness, isolation, addiction, and the desire to temporarily die to the world may become permanent.

Sex is innocent enough if it is used simply to relieve a physical need, but sex is 90% psychological. Therein lies the problem. If we use it to prove our worth, to impose our will on another, to dominate another, to demean them or those close to them, to subjugate them, or to prove our superiority, then we will reap those things for ourselves. We will be demeaned, used, dominated, or subjugated, depending on what our intentions were during the act. Those things will happen to us, most often from other sources such as STDs, children or from any area of our lives, including home, work or in between.

Whatever we truly want for another or do to another, is what we will receive for ourselves. Unless we remember this one law, we will think that our actions have no repercussions, or that helping others has no tangible reward. The fact is, that whenever we help someone find happiness, fulfillment or ease their physical demands, we will be given happiness, fulfillment and our work and life becomes easier.

We need to examine our every action. Are we doing something that will bring us harm? Do we want problems or misfortune for another person, not realizing that we will, without a doubt, suffer problems or misfortune because of our intent? Even if we help someone because of our love and concern for them, God will still bless us. And then we will be doubly blessed.

Let us never suffer self-inflicted pain or misfortune, because of our own actions or intent toward others. Let us be blessed by our actions in all things

Wealth or Welfare?

 

Why is there poor in this nation of riches? There are some who are on welfare through four or five generations – never breaking the cycle. Why? During the last administration there were even more getting on welfare, because of that administration using stimulus money to pay off political cronies, rather than create jobs. Not everyone on welfare has been there through generations. If a black politician proposes legislation that would get people off of welfare, he is called an Uncle Tom. If a white politician proposes the same legislation, he is a racist. The truth is, that government can only add people to the welfare roles and never solve the problem.

I went to a Kathryn Kuhlman meeting, where I heard her say, “Don’t pray for healing for yourself, pray for the person next to you.” Her reasoning was that a prayer for yourself has selfish overtones to it, but a prayer for another person is unselfish and pure. And according the the Harvest Principle, What you truly want for another will be given to you.

Using the Harvest Principle as the rule, we should want financial blessings for others. We should pray for their prosperity. We should get involved in securing economic blessings for them. Doing those things will secure economic blessings for ourselves. Being jealous or resenting wealth for another only takes what we have away from us. This “class warfare” is not only polarizing America, it is contributing to its economic downfall. One side wants to take away, and the other side wants to prevent it being taken away. Both sides are wanting to take away or keep prosperity from the other, and our economy can only be harmed or even destroyed.

Do not want (or covet) another’s wealth. Seek not for yourself, but encourage others to find economic blessings, help others find work or start a business, and do it unselfishly. Then you will be blessed in the same way that you wanted others to be blessed. It is the only way to break the generational enslavement, and the only way to stimulate our economy. Want it for someone else.

Proverbs ll:24-25 “One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”

Solomon, the wisest man of his time, wrote those words. They’re worth heeding.

Social media and bullying

We hear stories of young (mostly) girls who have committed suicide or attempted it, because of social media bullying. I wonder, though, if those doing the bullying haven’t picked up the habit of bullying by watching the main stream media, where the speakers abandon truth in order to cut down, demean, and criticize their opposition with “comedy”. Ha ha. “The View” is probably the graduating class of bullying. One on the panel reminds me of a turtle, another an aardvark and another the Pillsbury dough boy; but that doesn’t stop them from attacking Carly Fiorino because of her looks instead of discussing her political beliefs. I guess it’s just funnier tearing down someone and trying to destroy them, than to try to think deep enough to be able to understand them. And now it has spread to late evening talk shows and any other arena where they have an audience to amuse with their shallow bullying attacks.
That’s what people who bully are: Too shallow to understand anything, but witty and callous enough to tear down anyone they don’t understand or disapprove of.
To those young girls who are bullied: Carly Fiorino isn’t the perfect beauty queen, but she is attractive, her heart is in the right place, and her IQ is probably greater than all her critics combined. So, don’t listen to the cackling stupidity of shallow people. Seek out and become friends with those with depth of character like yourself. And remember, not only does God love you, but any true Christian loves you, too.

I give thanks

This year I have a lot to be thankful for. My wife of 60 years passed away earlier this year after being in a nursing home for over a year. I thank God that I was here to see her through this journey. I’m thankful that I was able to be with her every day and to help her eat and cope with her situation. She would try to use a spoon or fork once in awhile and feed herself, but she couldn’t. I give thanks that she tried throughout her illness to overcome it. I am thankful that God made it possible for me to be with her when she passed. I am thankful that it went quickly and easily (within a half hour). When she breathed her last breath, I told her that Jesus was here for her, and I told her one more time that I loved her. As I stood there bawling, the nurse put her hand on my shoulder and said, ‘”She had a hard road, but you were there every step of the way.” I was thankful that others, also, knew that I had done as much as could for her.
I am thankful that God still cares for me. I am thankful for my two cats Sammy and Misty – especially Sammy who sleeps on the pillow next to mine. And if I get up in the middle of the night, he raises his head and watches me, wondering where I’m going or what I’m doing. I am thankful that someone cares. He even follows me around the house when I’m home, and I sometimes turn around and find him sitting there staring at me. Yes, I am grateful that someone cares.
I am grateful to God for all things. I am grateful that He created me and sustains me, that He forgives me and heals me, that He strengthens me, guides me and uses me in His kingdom. I am thankful that He sent His son to bring cleansing to me which allows me to stand before our Holy God one day. And I am thankful that people take the time to read my rambling thoughts.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Christian, Atheistic or Imperialistic wars

Critics really play up the religious wars of Europe during the reformation, in which people overthrew or reformed the Catholic oligarchy that had ushered in the dark ages. Thousands of lives were lost during these wars, but truth won out.
Then came Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, which transformed man from a spiritual being into just an extension of the animal kingdom. Men’s lives were of as little importance as cattle, and the carnage began. Communism sprang up relegating people to to the level of goods to be managed, controlled and made profit of. Up to 50 million people died in Russia during their readjustment period. This was met by another atheistic political movement based upon free-enterprise, yet with dictatorial control over the lives of people. The war between these two atheistic political movements cost up to 50 million lives. Then China turned communist and another 83 million people were exterminated. In all, the twentieth century atheistic movements have cost the lives of 200 million people. And our left-wing politicians and media focus only on problems with Christianity during the Reformation, in order to continue to push for an atheistic one world government.
Islam has sworn to take over every nation of the world, and to exterminate those who would not worship their Allah. The twentieth Century atheism cost the lives of 200 million people. The Twenty-first century cost in lives will be in the billions unless the world wakes up and realizes that Islamic threats are real.
So, tell me: What is worse: Christianity, Atheistic philosophies, or Imperialistic Islam? Or is atomic war a more humane way for the world to die? Think about it, and, while you’re at it, ask yourself where do we go after we leave this world? And we will certainly leave this world one way or another. It’s only a matter of time.

Henry Kissinger brings us up to date

 

KISSINGER remarks on Trump…..MUST READ…30 seconds…
Pass this one along to all of your LITERATE or INTELLIGENT friends !!

Henry Kissinger is an American diplomat and political scientist who served as the United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under the presidential administrations of Richard Nixon. He is one of the politicians who really understand politics and cares what people think about.

On Sunday he did an interview and said very amazing things regarding President Trump, Conservative reports he starts with: “Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven’t seen.”

“Liberals and all those who favor Clinton will never admit it. They will never admit that he is the one true leader. The man is doing changes like never before and does all of it for the sake of this nation’s people. After eight years of tyranny, we finally see a difference.”

Kissinger knows it and he continues with: “Every country now has to consider two things: One, their perception that the previous president, or the outgoing president, basically withdrew America from international politics, so that they had to make their own assessments of their necessities.

And secondly, that there is a new president who’s asking a lot of unfamiliar questions And because of the combination of the partial vacuum and the new questions, one could imagine that something remarkable and new emerges out of it”

Trump puts America and its people first. This is why people love him and this is why he will remain in charge for so long. There is not a single thing wrong with him and people need to open their eyes.
