Body Language

Did you ever notice, that when you tell your cat to come in or to get off of the table, they squint their eyes, as if by not seeing you, they don’t have to listen to you? Did you ever notice that when a dog is aggravated by a situation – not playing with them, or not paying attention to them – they snort or sneeze? I’m sure you’ve noticed that dogs are more adept at expressing themselves through their body language than cats; and that cats are much more vocal, probably believing that we understand “meow” language, because we seem to always know what they want or need? They talk to you, and answer your responses as if carrying on a conversation with you. They both read us, too. They even watch which shoes we put on, trying to figure out whether we’re staying in, going out into the yard, or going shopping.

We and our pets communicate by vocalization, facial expressions or body language, just like every other person in the world. Have you noticed that the most aggressive and confrontational person is the person who is desperately trying to obtain love and respect. Or that the most boisterously reveling person is really the unhappiest?

We can’t find love and respect by dominating others. We can’t find inner happiness by pretending outwardly to have great fun. The pain and turmoil that we have inside of us, because of childhood upbringing or painful experiences cannot be covered over and forgotten by our actions toward others. And the love we need is too important to be entrusted to another fallible person. Only by learning of God’s great love for us, and learning to love, trust and rely on Him for our needs, will we find true peace and happiness. Only God’s love can erase our pain. Only His love can provide the firm foundation that we need to face the world each day without being defeated by it.

Yes, body language is fascinating. But reading someone’s actions and attitudes to determine what will happen to them in the future is essential. Whatever we want or do to another determines what happens to us. And the target of our actions or thoughts is not necessarily the source of the action that we receive in our lives. It is the intent that is returned to us from any source, and not the retaliation of the person we had intended or wished misfortune. When we worship at the throne of God through positive thoughts and actions, He rewards us. When we worship at the throne of Satan through negative thoughts and actions, he repays us with the negative in our lives. What do your actions and thoughts predict for your future? In order to decide which path to take, we must be aware of one fact: If you worship God and His ways, your blessings will be 10 times greater than your intent for others, and worshiping Satan and his ways your misfortune in life will be 10 times greater than your intent or wish for others.

Become aware of your attitudes and actions, and learn of your future.

Those who come to the Lord, must know that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Life and death are in the power of the tongue

John 1:1-5 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.
3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it…. “
John 1:14 “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Genesis 1:3 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

In the above verses we see that God simply spoke all of creation into being. He spoke the word, and the abstract and intangible became visible, physical, and touchable.

In the same way, God spoke our salvation into being in the form of Jesus, the Son of God, and Messiah of the world. Jesus is the Word. He is our salvation. Through Him we can have forgiveness of our sins, mistakes and blunders. Through Him we are reconciled with God the Father. Through Him we can have an eternal relationship and commune with the Almighty God of the Universe.

God spoke salvation into the world, but we must speak our own personal salvation into being by confessing, that Jesus is the Son of God, that He was sent by his Father to take our sins upon himself, through his torture and crucifixion, so that we may be forgiven of our sins, and have ever-lasting life, that He was resurrected, and as he laid down his life for us, we must vow to live our lives for him, spreading God’s love throughout the world, and bringing salvation to all mankind.

Proverbs 18-21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
Will you say the words that bring eternal life in Heaven, or will you speak words of eternal damnation in Hell. You have the power. It’s as easy as speaking.

Find the perfect mate

Where do we find the source of the deepest and most meaningful emotions, unbridled laughter, unabashed tears, the greatest satisfaction and security, and the place where we can forget ourselves and focus on the complete happiness of others, because we know that they would do the same for us. Hopefully that place is the place where we grew up. It is our first home – a place of nurturing, growing and fulfillment. It doesn’t rely on sex, but only on pure and unadulterated love for one another.
Now, find a person of the opposite sex that meets all these standards and you’ve found the nucleus of your own family. You’ve found the perfect mate. You’ve found your new home.

Teenage pregnanies at record lows

It has been reported that teenage pregnancies have fallen to record lows because of the use of contraceptives and abstinence, but with black and Hispanic teens experiencing pregnancy and abortion rates two to four times higher than their white peers. The Black community has had a history or enslavement, destruction of family, forced unemployment and poverty. The Hispanic community has, also, had a history of poverty, and has been uprooted from their native countries and forced to contend with a new and unfamiliar culture. The rates of teenage pregnancies in either of the three groups is unacceptable in a civilized society if that society is to survive. This is a new day with new opportunities for all people, and our new morality and principles cannot be based upon the principles adapted in an undeserved and dysfunctional time. Every group and each person must rebuild itself upon the moral teachings of a loving God in a new age of promises and opportunity..

There are many people in the Black and Hispanic communities, that I not only respect, but look up to because of their Godliness and devotion to God. Our communities are not devoid of teachers who can teach us how to stop harming ourselves and how to bring stability and blessings into our lives. We need to stop living the mistakes of the past and grab hold of the promises of today.

Democracy that relies on the will of the people cannot survive a people intent on destroying themselves. We will either have a dictatorial type government that serves the few elite in government, or we can have a democratic government that serves the people. Our lives and our government are too important to be thrown away by following an outdated philosophy of self-destruction.

Find God. Embrace God. And ask for His embrace. He is a God of love who is waiting for ours.

Granting a request

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes the simplest things can explain the deepest and most complicated of understandings. I had spoiled my cat,when we were in bed, by  raising up the covers to make a little tent or cave for him to hide in. This involves my elbow being on the bed with my arm lifted up as a tent pole. He refused to go into the cave I made unless I was under the covers too. As soon as I went under the covers, he ran right in. I don’t understand his reasoning, except maybe he didn’t want to be in there alone if the roof of his tent caved in.
If I were sleeping or attempting to go to sleep when he came to bed, he would put his two paws on my hip as I lay on my side, and begin pushing until I responded. I usually went along with it, but last night I was sound asleep and he began pushing on me. I finally decided that I might as well make his cave and maybe he would leave me alone. I made the cave and he ran right in, and as I lay there I wondered why I was making a cave for a cat that had no respect for my sleep.
Then I remembered the stories Jesus told. He said, “If a man asks you to walk a mile with him, walk two miles.’ and ‘If someone asks for your cloak, given them also your coat.‘ Because I understood that whatever we want for another or do to another, will be given to us, I realized that granting a person’s request and more, is our way of opening ourselves to
God answering our prayers and requests plus a little more. I realized that if we refused a request, we were opening up ourselves to having our prayers denied.
That doesn’t mean that we should honor every request, even if it is sinful or unreasonable. It does mean that we should surround ourselves with reasonable people, who would not ask us to do anything sinful or unreasonable, in order to prevent ourselves from having to refuse a request. Every time we refuse, we are vetoing one of our prayers.
You will be known by the company you keep, and your prayers will be answered by the company you keep. Help others and be helped. Aid others and be aided. Protect others and be protected.  Grant wishes for your fellow man, and know that your prayers will be answered.

Last night Sammy, my cat, woke me up another two times for a total of 3 times so I would make him a tent for a few minutes.  I hope he lets me sleep tonight, but if he doesn’t, I’ll grant his request.  I want to make sure God answers mine.

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? Today there are even more getting on welfare, because of our 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:24-2525 “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.

What’ll you have?

Jesus said, “Whatever you will have done to you, do to another.” The Apostle Paul wrote, “Be not deceived. God is not fooled, for whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap.” My book, “God, reward and punishment: Are they real?,” proves through many examples that a person does receive what he wants for another or does to another. The Golden Rule is not just a cozy homily. It is an absolute law.
It’s as if we order what happens to us in the future by wanting it or doing it to another person in the present. Wanting misfortune or blessings for another person is as reliable as giving an order at a fast food restaurant. We get what we want for another person.
Now that you know how to order your future, what’ll you have?

In love or in lust?

I Peter 4:8 “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.‘
Andy, “Lust covers a multitude of faults.”

It’s no wonder that our divorce rate is at 50%. Our society has been teaching the youth of this nation, that “playing house” or engaging in promiscuous sex is somehow beneficial to their future. However, the exact opposite is true. It is a well known fact that mutual “pair bonding” is created between two people engaging in sex, whether or not they are compatible at any other level other than sex. In other words, they can’t stop wanting the other person, regardless of how disastrous a marriage between the two would be.

It is, also, true that when a couple become serious with one another and they begin to have sexual relations, those trysts detract from the true purpose of courtship, by not concentrating on getting to know one another. The result is that in many marriages, when the fascination with sex wears off, they find that they are married to a total stranger, completely incompatible with themselves. The result is divorce.

Young girls, as young a ten years old, begin planning their wedding. We have television channels that exclusively program weddings. To a young girl, a wedding becomes the ultimate goal, and they will do whatever is necessary to have their own. Sex and grand weddings do not a marriage make. A marriage is made by a man and woman getting to know one another, growing to love one another, with a goal of spending their lives together. That doesn’t mean that the next fifty or sixty years will be a bed of roses, but it does ensure that it won’t be a bed of thorns.

Socrates guiding rule was to “Know Thyself“. I believe that the second guiding rule should be “know who you are marrying.”

ABSURDITIES AND ATROCITIES

Voltaire: ‘Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.’

Unknown: “Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.”

Some of the absurdities that he progressive politicians and their propaganda machine, the left-wing media, is causing many people to believe are:
Progressive politicians are saintly honest, and conservative politicians must always be up to no good.  17 Trillion dollars is nothing. We need to keep spending and spending until we are solvent again. We need to use stimulus money to prop up renewable energy companies owned by Democratic party contributors until they declare bankruptcy, because it creates jobs for the American people. All religions are peace-loving; and importing an alien religion will not lead to Sharia law and personal enslavement. Using State Department money to refurbish Mosques around the world, and finance book-signing tours for Muslims, while outlawing Christianity in our society, is simply showing tolerance. Supporting the overthrow of non-terrorist nations and replacing them with terrorist governments is simply an act of self-determination. The true radicals and potential terrorists are ex-servicemen, Christians and conservatives. We must be tolerant of everyone and everything, except Christians and conservatives. Marriage is a union of two people who love each other, not just for a man and woman to come together to procreate and provide a safe and nurturing environment for children. Shacking-up is an alternative to marriage for self-centered people unwilling to commit themselves to anyone or anything. Our nation’s birth rate will not deteriorate to the point of being out-bred by others who are alien to our way of life. Our nation’s borders, especially our southern border are secure. No terrorists or drug smugglers cross our borders. We, nevertheless,  love America, the American people, the American way of life, and the American Constitution.

These are some of the atrocities those absurdities and lies will cause us to commit:
The atrocity of forbidding God in public life. We will idolize lying, cheating, stealing and even murder, while condemning open honesty as something evil.  A 20 trillion national debt pushed off onto the next generation, who will have no choice but to declare bankruptcy. We will erase God from public life, and He will erase us. Heterosexual sex and marriage will be destroyed and outlawed. Only non-procreating sex will be allowed, and a chosen segment of our society will be allowed to breed and continue the work pool. Christianity will be outlawed and others will be awarded the responsibility of policing the moral or ethical laws of the new age. There will be no definable race, so racial hate will be a thing of the past. However, each person will be so unhappy and unfulfilled that they will hate their lives and the lives of everyone else on the planet. Violence and murder will be rampant throughout society, leading to a huge police and military force in an attempt to maintain order, which will lead to their own brand of enslavement, violence and murder.

Are we really ready to accept these new absurdities,which will lead to the atrocities that will lead to the total destruction of mankind? Are we as dumb as they hope we are? Will we commit the atrocities that will destroy us, by believing absurdities? Or are we an educated people, blessed by God, and able to think for ourselves just as those people who wrote our constitution?

Voltaire could have put it differently by saying, “Believing absurdities distorts and perverts rational thought, causing people to become irrational and distorted in their thinking, which leads to atrocities and their destruction.”

Think about it.

Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.’, Voltaire

Your life – Your decision

With children from a one parent household being six times more likely to get into trouble at school, get in trouble with the law, drop out of school, or becoming a victim of teenage pregnancy; and the parent five times more likely to be forced onto welfare and collect food stamps, it would seem that we are creating a ever-growing segment of anti-social welfare recipients.

Some would blame this phenomena on movies,TV, music, courts,and government with their brainwashing of young people into believing that their actions are of no consequence,or that people are not responsible for their actions. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whatever we want for another or whatever we do to another will be returned to us. People cannot worship themselves or exalt themselves above others, without being demeaned to a position of inferiority. “The meek shall inherit the Earth.” The self-centered will inherit the dirt.

Only the person is responsible for their own actions. The movie moguls will not pay the consequences for our actions. The schools, courts or government will not suffer because of our actions. Only we will reap reward or punishment for our own actions. Only we will suffer for our mistakes. Only we will reap the rewards of a sensible life. No one can choose for us. We’re not dumb animals to be herded by others. It is our choice and ours alone. And it’s not too late to start the rest of our life.

There is way too much suffering in this world, even under the best conditions. There is no excuse for suffering to be self-inflicted, or to inflict it upon our children.

Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
