'I Love You But': How Do We Love GOD With a Whole Heart--Faith Above Fiction

If you search the archives of Testify, you will find that I have sought, to confirm that Christianity is laden with Paganism, from Ishtar/Easter, to Christmas/Saturnalia, to Halloween and Sunday worship/Sabbath Day confusion.  And now, in the present state of Christianity, it is more focused on the flesh than ever, as exemplified with the likes of Joel Osteens, Your Best Life Now!  (Tell that to believers throughout the ages who have suffered miserably for telling the Truth.  Tell that to the millions of people who are suffering world wide catastrophes.  Tell that to the countless, millions of precious babies that are aborted daily in this country!)

Many Christians absolutely adore the stories of Gilgamesh (a demi-god),  Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia.   As a child, I read LTR and most of C.S. Lewis's writings.  All these fantasy writings along with 'musical legends" like Led Zeppelin, The Stones and others of their ilk,  kept me in a cold darkness and I liked it!  It was sensual and lofty; dark and mysterious, quite contrary to the True Word of GOD, which set me free, once I learned the Truth: that I was a sinner in desperate need of salvation! (Let me urge each reader here, please read each Scripture.  Testimony is good, but it is the Word that set me free and continues to grow me.  I pray the same for you!)

1 John
 9If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. 10He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 14And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Colossians 1 26Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints27To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:


Testimony:  The Mad Hatter Sees The Light

 

I must have been about 15 or 16 in this picture with one of my nieces.  I whole-heartedly celebrated Halloween.  Growing up Catholic, we always did!  My brother declares himself an atheist and yet, whole-heartedly celebrates all the holidays he was raised in. (The reality of the photo is that my niece was on the phone with my brother, who lived miles apart from her.  Graciously her mother would allow us time with her.  It always made me happy yet sad.  I did not like the separation.  And at Christmas, I was deeply grieved in my spirit, to hear this little girl squeal, "Daddy, Daddy! I love you and miss you!"  I would literally have to hide in the bathroom and grieve.  I believe even then YAHWEY was showing me the grief of the separation of HIS children.)

My brother and I are very much alike in personality.  In fact our Dad said we were like twins born years apart and no doubt, I love this brother very much.  My heart cries for him to know YAHWEY and to be set free from the madness that blinds his heart from the Truth!

Fiction Brings Comfort
There is a lot of fantasy that brings temporal comfort to the masses.  Everybody loves a superhero: He/she is strong, witty, super smart, super sexy/beautiful and always wins the battle.  But as the late Pastor David Myer explained, in witchcraft, the 'force' of good fighting evil are both the same!'  
You can read Myers works here http://www.lasttrumpetministries.org/tracts/index.html

I counseled a women several years ago, who at four months pregnant, was told by her husband that he had been sleeping with another woman for over a year.  "Why am I not enough for him?" she cried.    I often think about what was sown into the woman and then her child and have pondered on that question.

Many times friends and family and spouses disappoint each other through sinful actions and we may all find ourselves asking the question, "What is wrong with me, that I am not 'enough?'"

I am confident YAHWEY allows these things to happen, 1. to show us the truth of where we are--How come YAHWEY is not enough?  Truth Is ALL our needs are met in Christ Yahshua! Philippians 4:19   But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
And 2. to show us:  Do we lie?  Do we steal?  Do we defraud?  Do we lack love?  Do we complain?  Do we stray?  Do we want other than what YAHWEY has given us?

We do a lot to cover the truth: with alcohol, drugs, sex, shopping, music, work etc...

Eighteen: Young and Dumb

So up until eighteen, I know there is a GOD.  I can feel it in my bones!  Somehow even through all the madness of the Catholic Church, bits and pieces of the truth are getting to me.  But the rules applied, were none that I could 'live up to'.  I found myself forever, "messing up".  How could I ever attain heaven?  

So one night I am working at this restaurant, which I am sure was a cover for a drug running business.  Everyone from the owner to the dishwasher was smoking, snorting or drinking something, even the guy I was dating was a coke-head, unbeknownst to me!  And I am quite sure we were serving "magic brownies" (made with pot) because at the end of the evening if there were some left over, you better believe I had one.  

If fascinated me that something that "looked' and smelled and tasted soooo good, could be so wrong!

Philippians 3
17Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.18(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

(At this writing my little girl comes in and says, "That brownie looks yummy!"  I ask her, "It does, but if it had a little tiny bit of poop in it would you eat it?"  She looks at me with her big brown eyes, sparkling and declares, "NO WAY!!"   I ask her why and she states emphatically, 'poop is disgusting'.  Do we find sin disgusting?  And if not, why not?)

So here I am in this fancy restaurant and I get into a conversation with a man (a busboy) who declares himself a Rastafarian.  (I'll let you do your own research on the subject)  We called him "Rastaman"


We start talking about spiritual things.  I tell him I don't believe in all that voodoo hocus pocus, when he declares to me, "I tell you da trute!  If I take you apron home toonite, I make you bring me you paycheck every week."  Suddenly, a fire rose up inside me.  I looked at him, pointed my finger at him and said these words:  "You cannot touch this vessel, it has been bought with the blood of JESUS CHRIST!"  

People, that was before I made a 'profession of faith'.  And years later, I know like I know, that that was the Holy Spirit guarding what was His and rebuking that man because at that time in my life, I DID NOT talk like that!

Rastaman never talked to me again.  And a few weeks later, I got fired from my job (along with another guy).  The owner was a lush and didn't know his bum from his elbow!  Oddly enough, I finished my work for the evening, said goodbye to a few folks, who were blown away and confused about the firing.  I came home and told my folks, who were oddly enough, relieved. What was going on? 

Every door was closed for me.  I could not get a job in Cleveland anywhere.  I found it ridiculous. My sister, who lived in Chattanooga, invited me to come down here for the summer and work at her husbands office.  So I did.  I flew down and spent the summer here.

One Sunday my sister invited me to come to their church.  I thought, ok.  While there I heard the pastor repeat John 3 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

And later that evening, my brother-in-law asked me some questions:  What have you ever done that was so good to merit heaven?  What have you ever done that was so bad that GOD wouldn't love you?  If you were to die tonight, do you know where you would go?  Heaven or hell?

Good questions.  And they burned through all my thinking.  Growing up Catholic, I thought I had to EARN the right to be in heaven with JESUS.  But I knew the truth--I was a sinner!  I didn't love GOD or honor Him in any way.  I was selfish, self-centered, lustful about many things, angry and controlling.  And I never thought of GOD as loving me, I thought HE just demanded that I obey all these rules, all the time, that I could never master.  And lets face it-everyone around me was doing what they wanted to do.

But it was JESUS's words in the book of John that floored me.  'Jesus loves me?'  I am so yucky and pathetic!  I was a beautiful young woman, but did not 'feel' beautiful in my heart.  I 'knew' I was not truly beautiful, because my heart was dark.

Then it hit me.  Because of my own actions, my willful, sinful actions, I did deserve to go to hell.  Did I deserve to go to heaven?  What had I done to show that GOD was beautiful and real to others?  Woe was me, literally.  Who could save me from MYSELF?  Seems like I was bent on destroying my life. Highway To Hell had been my theme song and I hadn't cared if I died.  

I had boyfriends and brothers and a good Dad.  There is only so much love any one person can give another.  I was angry that no one had rescued me from being raped!  Why would GOD let that happen to me (at the time I was 11 years old!).  Everyone says, "I love you" but there is always a but! Many a time I felt like a burden.  What people often feel in a human sense, they translate into that is how GOD feels about them.  But GOD is infinite.  HIS love never ends and HE is not fallen and messed up-we are.  In Genesis 3 Adam and Eve declare their, "I love You, but" when they listened to satan instead of their FATHER and since then we are all "I love You, but".   GOD is "I love you, and".

Yes, there are blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience.  Come on, we know this to be true when we are training a dog!   GOD loves us THROUGH our sin.  HE does not love the sin.  The sin is our self will trying to override HIS.  You do not like it when your dog pees on your couch or tears up clothes, but you still love him right?

A True Hero

I realized then that there was no hope in and of myself- "I" was hopeless and could not fix anything.  I realized that Jesus did the ultimate super hero thing- He put Himself between me and the worst thing that could happen to me-death.  We all know our bodies will die.  One out of every one person dies!  The Bible says, "Flesh and blood do NOT inherit the kingdom of GOD" and that Jesus is a "Life giving Spirit".   I needed a life!  I needed a real life!

All the other super hero's could rescue someone from situations, including death, but NONE could rescue from the death that is ultimate--spiritual death, which is complete separation from GOD's wonderful love!

That day I was very grieved over my sins.  I realized GOD was real.  And that HIS love for me was real!  And that there was something more HE saw in me than just my every physical flaw and sin.  HE saw the spirit that HE created that is truly me.  HE saw that I was lost and needed to be found.  That I was dead and needed to live!  That the world had been choking the  Word out of me, and that I needed to breathe!  I need HIS breath of life!

And praise HIM for setting me free!  I do not love this world or anything in it.  I love people.  I love their spirits.  I do not always love/like what people do, but I am not the judge.  I can do what Jesus did and continues to do for me:  I can love people through the muck and mire.  But I also have to tell the truth!  True love tells the Truth!

To this day, I still cry and am deeply moved by the love, mercy and grace YAHWEY has poured out on me.  I am so undeserving of any of it!  I deeply desire to 'Love GOD and", not love Him, but...

Where is the grieving over sin?  Where is the anguish?  Anguish means 'acute bodily or mental suffering' , torment.  Where is the grief over the many half/truths that 'churches' teach?  Where is the anguish over the sins that we have all committed, opening gate after gate, after gate and now reaping what we have sown?  There are NONE that are righteous, no NOT ONE!  We have all fallen short of the glory of GOD.  We have ALL gone our own way and insist on our own path.

Where is the power of Christ in us?  Is it possible that the true church, does not see the spiritually dead, raising up to life everlasting because she is heavy-laden with her own grievous sins?  "Come out of her My people!  Touch no unclean thing and I will receive you unto Myself!"  Come out of self will, pride, arrogance, anger, meanness, lust, judgings, lies and gossip.

Don't tell me the people of the world need to repent, they do.  But it is we-YAHWEYS people, who know the Truth, that need to beg Him for mercy.  

FATHER open my eyes, restore to me the fire that I once had.  Dive in the depths of my heart and reveal to me where I am wrong, where I am/have sinned against You.  Set me free from whatever is putting me in bondage to the extent that I am powerless and am worthless in Your kingdom.
FATHER teach me Your ways and never let me go.  If I can do just one thing for You, my Love, I want to do it.  Let me honor You in the true worship of surrender.  I don't need anyone to see it, but You!  Your approval means more to me than anything or anyone.

I don't know about you, but my prayers have been, that FATHER would open folks hearts and quicken those spirits and that HE would come quickly.  

Addendum
I didn't get to finish this writing earlier. (busy mom) 

I wanted to clarify that even though I was raised Catholic and heard John 3 in a Baptist church, that does not mean I condone 'churches'.   The truth of the message of the gospel can be heard anywhere.  The problem with 'churches' is that they are man made.  We can meet/assemble anywhere at anytime.  "Where two or more are gathered in HIS name, there HE is with them in their midst."
And the truth of the gospel message can be heard in a pizza place!

FATHER makes it clear that HE hates the mixing of the Holy with the profane.

2 Corinthians 6
14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the uncleanthing; and I will receive you,
18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

A true person of GOD should teach/preach this way:

Ezekiel 44:23
"Moreover, they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

Today many people are off of work and will be celebrating the weekend of Ishtar/Easter.  This is right in the midst of Passover (what we could be recognizing-although if you are born again, you recognize Passover every day!).  See the confusion?  And that is true Babylon--confusion.

FATHER help!

'I Love You But': How Do We Love GOD With A Whole Heart? Part 2




"I love you but...I can't forgive you."     "I love you but...now is not a good time in my life."     "I love you but...you're really complicated."

I love you but...

Love is a verb.  It is an emotion in action.  It is a will of the soul, heart, mind and spirit in action!
("Show me who you are, and I will believe you!")

Love brought Jesus to earth in the form of a weak baby.  Love is vulnerable.

Love lead Jesus to the cross.  "Not my will be done, but Yours!"  concedes Jesus while sweating drops of blood!  That is pressure!  Love is full of all kinds of pressure.

Love is a fight!  You got to love The Truth and fight the lie(s).

True love endures forever.


The Intimacy of Love

True love is willing.  When a bride repeats her vows they go something like, "I promise to love, honor and obey."   Shouldn't the Bride of Christ be promising and doing the same; to love, honor and obey?

How do we love, honor and obey GOD?  Well if you are religious and churched, you might answer, "By going to church every Sunday.  By volunteering in the nursery and food pantry.  By going on mission trips."

In Chapter 5 of the Song of Solomon  this encounter takes place.
2I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.
3I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them?
4My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him.
5I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped with myrrh, and my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.
6I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

How do we love, honor and obey GOD? When the question is asked...don't delay!  You want to prove your love to your Lord and Savior?  Don't delay your response to Him when He knocks on your heart!

Piece of My Heart
We give our life to Jesus, but we give Him only pieces; the parts we are willing to give.   I am sorry but I thoroughly believe that mediocrity is a sin!  Now I am not saying that GOD is not present or wonderful or doesn't speak in and through the mundane.  I am saying to put a half hearted effort into a spiritual life that GOD imparts to you is a sin.

I don't celebrate xmas but I certainly do celebrate in my heart/soul, the incarnation of GOD!  What a glorious and celebratory event! (Can the mundane become a tiny celebration?  A sister commented to me how grateful she is to have a washer and dryer, albeit in a shared facility.  She has a thankful heart!  Can fixing a car, or paying someones rent, or feeding the homeless, be as celebratory as Thanksgiving?)

As the Holy Spirit, which is the True Life, lives in us, we most certainly have something to celebrate!

Genesis 2
21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
(Sounds like Adam was celebratory!)

When did Eve stop loving Adam and GOD with a whole heart? When she listened to the serpent.
At what point did Adam stop loving GOD with a whole heart?  When he hearkened(listened) to the voice of his wife over the commands of GOD.  

(Now this is not an Adam/man bashing post or a who's fault was it first).  Adam and Eve were ONE.
Both of them pulled an "I love you, but..."  And that 'I love you but', was "I love You Father, but You are not enough for me.And what You've given me is not enough.  I want more!"

How can you want more when you have everything?

Have you ever been rejected by someone you love?  How did that make you feel?  Were you crushed?  Were you in shock?  Did you feel like dying, just a little bit?  

Adam made an idol out of Eve.  Perhaps she was extremely beautiful and he let that beauty override his loyalty to Father?  Is this why men have the most difficult time with their eyes?  I have read that the struggle men have with 'not' looking, is liken to asking the woman who is presently reading this sentence to stop reading it!  

Luke 11:34  The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

(Eyes are gateways.  Fight at the gates Christian.  Lean not on your own understanding but pray in the Spirit on ALL occasions!)

Women have their 'eye candy' also.  The pride of life, the stuffs, the house beautiful and oddly enough in a non-homosexual way, women lust after other women's beauty.  ('Oh I wish I had legs like her, or was skinny like her')

This is all goddess worship and we are immersed in it.  From Easter to 'Christ mas', to Vogue, to Playboy. To the theatre that is school/education, to the work place!

Oh GOD, if only we were blind, so that we might see clearly!

So how do we love GOD with a whole heart when it seems like everything is so messed up?  I think we have to start with what we've got.   Start with loving and being thankful and content with what GOD has already given you.  And because we are like little gospels/little representations of Jesus (because His Spirit lives in us!), let's make the most of every opportunity because the days are evil and time is short.

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might. Eccl 9:10  Be ready and willing, quickly to let anything or all go at a moments notice.  Keep in mind, these may be small things too.

What we have in this 'life' is all temporal and fading fast.

Stop looking at the image.

FATHER I pray that You would help us love You with a whole heart.  A heart that is willing to hear Your voice, go where You ask, speak to whom You ask, give to whom you ask.  FATHER please give us the gift of repentance.  Sometimes we know not what we are doing, but if we would know the truth and be set free, we have to know the thing(s) that separate us from You.  Please removed the blinders from our eyes, that we might see clearly all that is idol to You.  Give us the Spirit of conviction and Godly sorrow and help us turn from those things and have a single eye on You and then be a light to a dying world.




'I Love You But': How Do We Love GOD With A Whole Heart? Part 1

I want to set the 'tone' of this post by submitting this video. ( I said Part 1 because I want to really take the time to listen to the Holy Spirit  and post in increments) I'll post a link to the lyrics below.


""This is a story of a mother's love for her baby. It sums up my son's first year. He was born way too early, and the obstacles he had to overcome were really big, but not bigger than our God.

A year ago from this Halloween he came home from the hospital. I made this video to commemorate his first year and how far he has come. Today also happens to be his mother's birthday... so I made this as a gift to her for both of these special days.

I want to thank all the doctors, nurses, and staff all over the world that make it their life's mission to help babies get better! It's because of you that my son ever stood a chance to make it home! --Benjamin Scot Miller. ""

Isaiah 40:11  Like a shepherd He will tend His flock, In His arm He will gather the lambs And carry them in His bosom; He will gently lead the nursing ewes.

This message is for anyone who is learning how to trust Jesus as Savior.   The verse above paints a picture of how intimate GOD wants to be with you.  (Not sexually).  A real heart to heart relationship as described by the words, "And carry them in His bosom."  

The word bosom means, 'breast, womb,surface, ships hold'.  Obviously in the video above, the tiny baby is snuggled up to his mothers bosom.  There is warmth there.  There is trust there, while her arms hold him gently. There is nourishment there.  And her heart is there.  

Babies are very sensitive to their mothers heart beats and breathing!  In fact there is such a physiological connection that some babies will know if moms upset! 

My father and a friends daughter both had open heart surgery.  The heart is a very impressive organ. Not only is it responsible for being strong and pumping and cleaning blood for the entire body, it is mysteriously endowed.  I say mysteriously because we don't know all about the human body, even with all of our studies and advanced technology.  

People who have had open heart surgery experience a deep depression and grieving.  Perhaps because the heart should be guarded as it is the wellspring of our life!

We are a triune entity.  Mind, Body, Spirit.  They are all connected.  And all must be cared for to the best of our ability.  (And most importantly our obedience to our Head/Jesus!)  If the Holy Spirit abides in you, then you are His home and you are Home.  Home is where the heart is!

John 14:23  Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.


The Fray  Happiness
Happiness was just outside my window
I thought it'd crash blowing eighty miles an hour
But happiness is a little more like knocking
On your door, you just let it in

Happiness feels a lot like sorrow
Let it be, you can't make it come or go
But you are gone, not for good but for now
And gone for now feels a lot like gone for good

Happiness is a firecracker sitting on my headboard
Happiness was never mine to hold
Careful child, light the fuse and get away
'Cause happiness throws a shower of sparks

Happiness damn near destroys you
Breaks your faith to pieces on the floor
So you tell yourself, that's enough for now
But happiness has a violent roar

Happiness, it's like the old man told me
Look for it and you'll never find it all
But let it go, live your life and leave it
Then one day you'll wake up and she'll be home

Home, she'll be, she'll be, she'll be home
She'll be home, she'll be home, she'll be home
She will be home, she'll be home, she'll be home
She'll be home, she'll be

Slaughter at the Gates Part 2 goddess worship at the gates


2 Corinthians 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Exodus 20:3  Thou shalt not have no other gods before Me.
4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Happy Eostre everyone!!
When we mix the holy with the profane GOD says this:  Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Some gates may not be closed until the LORD returns because some have opened gates that destroy, even unto the next generation!!

But get this:  Because of strong delusion which the LORD sends, people will continue to prostitute themselves with the world, with not a care in the world!

Hosea 4:14  I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall. 

How sad!  This is a charge for the elder men of the land.  As the head does, so shall the wife and the children do also!  And so goes the way of the 'church' (the false church).  The heads-the false prophets, teachers, preachers, lead the masses astray. But, the masses like it so!  Who will stand for Truth??!!


"Catholics are Jews who go all the way"  
This statement was made by a man I knew well.  I seriously do not think he really knew what he was saying, but FATHER is teaching me here.

If Catholics are Jews who go all the way, than the Jews the statement is referring to, are those of the Synagogue of Satan!  Just a brief study on the history of eostre/easter and one learns the pagan origin (beginning) of this pathetic holiday.

Revelation 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Interesting that Paul says this in 2 Cor 8:9 'For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.'

Rich how?

Who is a true Jew?  Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Trafficking at the Gates of Slaughter
Ezekiel 28:18  Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.


traffic (n.) Look up traffic at Dictionary.com
c.1500, "trade, commerce," from Middle French trafique (15c.), from Italian traffico (14c.), from trafficare "carry on trade," of uncertain origin, perhaps from a Vulgar Latin *transfricare "to rub across," from Latin trans- "across" (see trans-) + fricare "to rub" (see friction), with the original sense of the Italian verb being "touch repeatedly, handle." 

Or the second element may be an unexplained alteration of Latin facere "to make, do." Klein suggests ultimate derivation of the Italian word from Arabic tafriq"distribution." Meaning "people and vehicles coming and going" first recorded 1825. Traffic jam is 1917, ousting earlier traffic block (1895). Traffic circle is from 1938.
traffic (v.) Look up traffic at Dictionary.com
1540s, "to buy and sell," from traffic (n.) and preserving the original commercial sense. Related: Traffickedtraffickingtrafficker. The -k- is inserted to preserve the "k" sound of -c- before a suffix beginning in -i--y-, or -e- (compare picnic/picnickingpanic/panickyshellacshellacked).

Isn't it interesting that the Bible states in 2 Corinthians 6:17 'Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,'
And cross reference that to Isaiah 52:11  'Depart, depart, go out from there, Touch nothing unclean; Go out of the midst of her, purify yourselves, You who carry the vessels of the LORD.'
What is it that a true believer carries in their bodies- the temple?  The Holy Spirit!  And He will not abide with sin.

Goddess Worship
It is everywhere!  Right now, on my desk are a pack of coupons.  The very first one is for a Suave fake tan lotion.  The caption reads, "Sunshine".  

Gordon stated one time, "If it were not for women, there would be no stores!"  Amen!! and how true!  I am not against looking nice.  I too like fancy, colourful things.  But there is an extremism that is present in our land.  And this weekend, knowing and unknowing people will shop, run up debts and go to extremes to be the best dressed at Sunday church service where the lies are perpetuated over thousands of years now!!

I don't mean to sound tacky, but the truth needs be said.  "Come out of her My people".
Come out of her.  Stop committing spiritual adultery with this whore for her house leads to the grave!   We wonder why there is so much pornography.  We wonder why there is so much sex trafficking.  We wonder why there is so much sexual perversion (for the natural affections are lost, when the spiritual truths are discarded.)  We wonder how there is so much bloodshed of the unborn and born.

Proverbs 7
Warnings about the Adulteress
1My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
2Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
3Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
4Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
5That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
6For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
7And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
8Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
9In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
10And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
11(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
12Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
13So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
14I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
15Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
16I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
17I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
19For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
20He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
21With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
22He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
23Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
24Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
25Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
26For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
27Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

For the female readers of this blog, prepare yourself for the next few sentences.   As Adam hearkened unto the voice of his wife, so now millions are still hearkening unto the voice of the goddess!

Hearken:  to hear, to listen.

Eve was deceived by the devil that she could become just like GOD.  The fruit she gave to her husband wasn't some tasty, forbidden apple.  It was the very words of the devil!  This goddess worship started all the way back in Genesis 3!  Ladies if you think you are hearing from the LORD, test the spirits to see if they be of the LORD and humbly lay that thing at your husbands feet and leave it!  See what happens; either the LORD's will be done, or you will know you heard wrong.  Many women try to persuade their husbands to do things; don't use charm.  Speak from the heart and then let it go.  GODs will, will be done!  Just as the head/the husband, and all those who are 'heads' will be held responsible, so will women!  We are not off the hook.

Moon Goddess

Now where have we seen her before?  
Crescent moon atop a mosque.

All religions have threads interwoven in them.  Come out of religion!

""The Three Goddesses
 Mediterranean mythology included the worship of the Mother goddess who
appeared under three natures, names and faces. Adam McLean, a leading
authority on goddesses, states:
The triplicity of the Goddess is very important. This is not merely a
multiplying by three, but rather a threefold manifestation; the Goddess
reveals herself on three levels, in the three realms of the world and of
humankind.
Those three faces correspond to heaven, earth and the underworld; or past,
present and future. McLean continues:
The most important triple aspect of the Goddess is her manifestation as
Virgin/Mother/Crone. This is perhaps the easiest representation with
whom people can identify, as this triplicity corresponds to the three
phases of woman’s life... the Young Woman/Mother/Old woman. (Adam
McLean, The Triple Goddess. An Exploration of the Archetypal Feminine (Grand
Rapids, 1989), 14-15.)""

Mary, co-redemtrix?  

Mary the queen of heaven?   She presents to us "her" son.  

Jeremiah 7
Jeremiah's Message at the Temple Gate
1The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2Stand in the gate of the LORD'S house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD. 3Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. 4Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these. 5For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; 6If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: 7Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.
(AND)
17Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. 19Do they provoke me to anger? saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? 20Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.

GOD is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow!! The same message keeps going out! REPENT!

How about this one?
"The Blood Moon Prophecy is an idea popularized by Christian pastors John Hagee and Mark Biltz, which states that an ongoing tetrad (a series of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses) which began with the April 2014 lunar eclipse is a sign of significant things to come. Biltz believes that the Second Coming will coincide with the final eclipse of the tetrad, while Hagee only believes the eclipses are a sign of coming change in the course of history for Israel."

A MUST LISTEN!



"Jesus did not come to earth to be the Messiah."   Says the man who promotes a Blood Moon prophecy. 
And then we have David Jeremiah and his All Seeing Eye in front of his church.

As one who grew up with artists, I can tell you for certain that art can tell a story.  Image can also tell a truth about a lie!

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.  No thanks!

The movie Lucy coming out in August.  Yet another Hollywood 'curriculum' on becoming god-like.  And there's been a lot more of them. Transcendence with Johnny Depp.  Limitless with some actor I don't know.  It's always drugs or the internet or a combo of both.  

We are reaching the pinnacle of pride!  (Think-critical mass)  Duck and cover!
