Inspiration tells us of a meal designed to impress us with the contention and strife among the guests, as to who would be the best.

King DAvid's TombSouvenirs_d'Orient,_1878_by_Félix_Bonfils_0130 - Copy

Above the arched pillars that holds the sarcophagus of King David, is a place called “The Upper Room,” above the old city of King David, to the left, is a corner of “Old Jerusalem.”

History records it was here Jesus made ready the meal for the Passover Lamb. In the upper chamber Christ was sitting with His disciples. They had gathered to celebrate the Passover, the Day in Egypt, when the angel passed over the land, destroying the first born of all who refused to put the mark, the blood of the Lamb, round their door. This blood spectacle was to be a forever reminder of our relationship to the Son of Man, His life,  death, and resurrection that brings peace of mind to them that claim, the blood of the Jew, the Kind of King, like David, who cared for the sheep, and spared them from the devouring lions.

There was “a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.”  This contention, carried on in the presence of Christ grieved and wounded Him. The disciples clung to their favorite idea that Christ would assert His power, and take his position on the throne of David.  and in heart each still longed for the highest place in the kingdom.  they had placed their own estimate upon themselves and upon one another, and instead of regarding their brethren as more worthy, they had placed themselves first.   The request of James and John to sit on the right and left of Christ’s throne had excited the indignation of the others.  That the two brothers should presume to ask for the highest position so stirred the ten that alienation threatened.  They felt that they were misjudged, that their fidelity and talents were not appreciated.  Judas was the most severe upon James and John.

When the disciples entered the supper room, their hearts were full of resentful feelings.  Judas pressed next to Christ on the left side; John was on the right.  If there was a highest place, Judas was determined to have it, and that place was thought to be next to Christ. And Judas was a traitor.

Another cause of dissension has arisen.  At a feast it was customary for a servant to wash the feet of the guests, and on this occasion preparation had been made for the service.  The pitcher, the basin and the towel were there, in readiness for the feet washing; but no servants was present, and it was the disciples’ part to perform it.  But each of the disciples, yielding to wounded pride, determined not to act the part of a servant.  All manifested a stoical unconcern, seeming unconscious that there was anything for them to do.   By their silence they refused to humble themselves.

How was Christ to bring these poor souls where Satan would not gain over them a decided victory?  How could He show that a mere profession of discipleship did not make them disciples, or insure them a place in His Kingdom?  How could He show that it is loving service, true humility, which constitutes real greatness? How was He to kindle love  in their hearts, and enable them to comprehend what He longed to tell them?

The disciples made no move toward serving one another.  Jesus waited for a time to see what they would do.  Then He, the divine Teacher, rose from the table.  Laying aside the outer garment that would have impeded His movements, He took a towel, and girded Himself.  With surprised interest the disciples looked on, and in silence waited to see what was to follow. “After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded.”  This action opened the eyes of the disciples. Bitter shame and humiliation filled heir hearts.   They understood the unspoken rebuke, and saw themselves in altogether a new light.

So Christ expressed His love for His disciples.  Their selfish spirit filled Him with sorrow, but He entered into no controversy with them regarding their difficulty. Instead He gave them an example they would never forget.   His love for them was not easily disturbed or quenched.  He knew tat the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He came from God,and went to God.  He had a full consciousness of His divinity; but He had laid aside His royal crown and kingly robes, and had taken the form of a servants.  One of the last acts of His life on earth was to gird himself as a servants, and perform a servant’s part.

Before the Passover Judas had met a second time with the priests and scribes, and had closed the contract to deliver Jesus into their hands.  Yet he afterward mingled with the disciples as though innocent of any wrong, and interested in the work of preparing for the feast.   The disciples knew nothing of the purpose of Judas. Jesus alone could read his secret.   Yet He did not expose him.   Jesus hungered for his soul.   He felt for him such a burden as for Jerusalem when He wept over the doomed city. His heart was crying, How can I give thee up?  The constraining power of that love as felt by Judas. When the Saviour’s hands were bathing those soiled feet, and wiping them with the towel, the heat of Judas thrilled through and through with the impulse then and there to confess his sin.  But he would not humble himself.  He hardened his heart against repentance; and the old impulses, for the moment put aside, again controlled him.  Judas was now offended at Christ’s act in washing the feet of His disciples.  If Jesus could so humble Himself, he thought, He could not be Israel’s king.  All hope of worldly honor in a temporal kingdom was destroyed.  Judas was satisfied that there was nothing to be gained by following Christ.   After seeing Him degrade himself, as he thought, he was confirmed in his purpose to disown Him, and confess himself deceived.  He was possessed by a demon, and he resolved to complete the work he had agreed to do in betraying his Lord.

Judas, in choosing his position at table, had tried to place himself first, and Christ as a servant served him first. John, toward whom Judas had felt so much bitterness, was left till last.  But John did not take this as a rebuke or slight.  As the disciples watched Christ’s action, they were greatly moved.   When Peter’s turn came he exclaimed with astonishment, “Lord, dost Thou wash my feet?” Christ’s condescension broke his heart.  He was filled with shame to think that one of the disciples was not performing this service.  “What I do,” Christ said, “thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.” Peter could not bear to see his Lord, whom he believed to be the Son of God, acting the part of a servants.   his whole soul rose up against this humiliation.  He did not realize that for this Christ came into the world.   With great emphasis he exclaimed, “Thou shalt never wash my feet.”

Could I sit, watch and feel Jesus wash my feet? Would I know His death was coming to defeat “death” or would I be among those contending to be privileged? Jesus heart was breaking with the knowledge, he would be leaving His disciples. What could He do, to ask them , “Please remember me.”

The King of the Jews, King David, was resting in his tomb beneath their feet. Their hope of personal glory, their position, their guarantee of good livelihood was soon to be disappointed and the rulers would be turning to include His disciples with those who were “robbers and creating unrest.” From personal glory, to open enemies of the Roman Empire, High Priests and  Pilate, the disciples would crown their last act, by being deceived.

When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His Glory: and before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another.”   Thus Christ on the Mount of Olives pictured to his disciples the scene of the great judgment day.  And he represented its decision as turning upon one point.   When the nations are gathered before him, there will be but two classes, and their eternal destiny will be determined by what they have done or have neglected to do for him in the person of the poor and the suffering.

P.S. It has been determined that King David’s bones are not in the sarcophagus. Could it be King David was among those who rose, with the first fruits of the dead, when Jesus rose from the grave?

What must King David think of those men who use his mistake, in coveting Uriahs’ wife,  taking Bathsheba to bed and killing Uriah, as an excuse for them to sin? Will you place your “sin” on the head of another man or woman? Can you blame THE KING, and crucify Him again, The Lamb of God? Can The Kingdom of God be run by men who forget, to remember…His Sacrifice….The King of the Jews and grace for the Gentiles and Israel and the Temple Mount to be a Place of Prayer for ALL NATIONS. What Laws? What Prophets?

What does the Kingdom of God look like in Heaven? Will I be ready to bow down to the King of the Jews? Jesus asked Peter to “feed His sheep”.  Do you know The Voice of Jesus Christ, the Jew?


Archaic appears to be an arch, taking us back to seasons before our time so we can learn from the mistakes of others and grasp the Mystery of Life?

Uncle Walter has a new name. With a baby among us, life has changed. Baby Caleb is eager to explore. We wonder as we watch his fingers grasp something new. The Mystery of Life unfolds with a different view on how to protect him from what he doesn’t know. Without knowing it, our responsibility has grown but Calebs’ joy in exploring has touched us with the idea of doing more things together.

War, with its engines, divide us. So. .  . can we explore heaven, unite  in

French RevolutionAnonymous_-_Prise_de_la_Bastille

the glory of a GOD, who took upon himself, the responsibility of saving us, by dying. . .and conquering “death.” so the Mystery of Life, beyond the grave, comes with a “belief” that being evil, destroying others and ruins the chance to learn how to  become family and friends, in this life and another.

What can a baby teach us about our need to help and take care of others?

Is God like an arch, like a bridge over troubled water? Who can envision a world without the sin,  of man’s inhumanity to man?

Is God like no other god? Can it be with Him, a love that never dies, and love that never permits sin to rise again? No need of guns or ammunition to fight a battle that was won over Lucifer, at the cross?

Will we really study war no more? What an archaic idea, that war solves problems….and destroying promotes life and happiness? What TRUTH comes out of destroying each other?  Given so many prefer to not have more babies….we seem to be heading to population zero. . .

And The Rains Came

Deu_11:14 then he will send rain on the land in its season—the early and latter rains—then you’ll gather grain, new wine, and oil. NEW WINE, are we finding refreshing JOY, PATIENCE, LOVE and great humility, as we behold what manner of God the Father has given unto us to be called the sons and daughters of God. 🙂

And The Rains Came cover

Big trees sway, musically orchestrated by the conductor who waives His baton to commence the performance. In the background, percussions give life to the motion. The rains came, and angels with wings call to the heavens, “Let us dance!” A curtain of clouds draw nearer, and the lights dim.

And The Rains Came pic 1

The drums sound from the heavens – God is coming, God is coming! Drumsticks ping on the cymbals resembling rain. Angels spread their wings to protect the innocent from harm. Our Almighty Creator now reigns in the hearts of men. The symphony cries out an overture from the past, for God, once again, makes the rain last forever.

Angels in white robes chant as loud as they can to raise the dead, “Sing with us all ye at rest.” In His mighty voice, God speaks to all the graves, “Release the saved and return them to ME!”

Making Amends

Nothing is as fascinating as the LAST SUPPER . . .or feeling I would LIKE TO BE THERE when we have the LAST SUPPER before Jesus comes. But more interesting to me, is the joyful, contemplation of each disciple, and their “characters” that make you wonder, “which one would I wish to sit by, on a long bus ride?” Peter…the talkative one, Timothy the quiet one, and how can you explain, the John, the romantic, the one who needs the comforter? Which disciple would you like to ride with a long bus ride?

Jesus, John, and Paul – Amen!

AMEN “Thoroughly confused, I went back to my beginning thoughts of this blog – the Bible. Christ was God’s amen, so that’s why Jesus never ended a prayer but only started” (When i read this blog) prayers with an amen.
I had been asking the Holy Spirit to be sent out, for God to finish His work. I think the basis for considering AMEN…SO BE IT…is comforting…because “IT” is HIS KINGDOM….and I can ask you…What is “it.” Gods world, Gods word, Gods way or the highway to hell? Some choice.

I told my wife I felt as if I am starting off in the middle of this blog, with no beginning nor an end. It all began with research on questions plaguing my brain about the simple word, amen. For example, do you know what it really means? I read the footnotes of articles which brought me to an inconclusive decision so, I dug deeper. Where I ended up is mind-blowing, especially for those growing up in the era of the sixties. I am from a generation of influential music such as the Beatles, and I even have to contemplate the answers I found to be true.

We all know the biblical story of God’s conception of a special child named Jesus. He was given to us for our salvation and to spiritually guide us in life on earth. But did you know the Lord, himself, never uttered amen

We should all write and know what truth is: Because we need it! Have we a “law” or obligation to testify for good winning over evil?


I dearly hope, someone is worthy to know truth, much better than I.

For by experience, and time in reflecting,

“It” (truth) has never refrained from teaching me, by what I have suffered.

So, in some sense of the way I’ve learned by making more mistakes

I feel qualified to identify with one who comforts the prostitute

I could amplify, the superiority of one who prays for humility.

A passage of mine, that seems divine,

Is that I can be educated in the School of Hard Knocks.

Who can poorly define, the “crisis” among us?

Mysterious is the sin, the crime, that comes with time. . .

Hoping someone, in time, understands the “motives” of the “so called crime.”

And here, I wait for “the gift” of being “forgiven” . . .

It is a “truth” . . .that the “judge” who reads my mind

Can be the only one to find. . .”she may be blond, dizzy, doppy and dumb”

But that does not mean, she’s stupid.

The mystery is for this fool, to attempt to climb…like a

salmon going up river seeking truth, is a sacred rite.

And I have to keeping trying to get it right.

How is it, one did write, “Connie is a profit to the neighborhood”

Then like an idiot, Connie spouted out, “She can’t even spell the word right?”

I do hope this word, makes sense someday . . .

When our crazy world is interrupted by “a pearl” of writer!

Who truly knows our minds, and how to make things right.

Some may not get the drift of this .  . .lol

But it did allow me to “write.”

Then in reflecting, there was “light”, joy and a sense of de-light.

What a freedom, what a joy, to explore the right to write!

Thank you

P.S. I must not be set in my ideas, and think that no one should interfere with my opinions.

Wow! I must be “open minded” to permit someone to dissect my  . . .right – write – rite – light? Can we discuss this? lol

I guess that’s why God gave me sisters…hummmm Someone has to be “right and right she’ll will always be.”  So let her go girl go!

Put them all together and that spells M-O-T-H-E-R…




Motivated by the Transforming Power of Their Teacher Their Eager Minds Would Be Filled with Seeds of Thought Each Designed in a Distinct Line.

seed scoops

What kind of teacher would see the potential in students each who would act a leading part in the future of mankind? I remember the fourth grade class when a certain young student would not share his markers. When a female made a request to borrow his colors, she was using crayons. “You can’t use markers with crayons!” Clearly his authority to separate mixed media would prove her request must be denied. Certainly his future would be defined by “his criteria”. Case Closed. He should be an attorney?

I was only a substitute that day, but I would be challenged to “think up” a way to guide that brilliant mind towards his goal of knowing “right” from “wrong.” He who is motivated to separate markers from crayons delights in the joy from knowing his mind.

In preparation for teaching each “disciple” Christ taught them, foreseeing all. James, destined to swift coming death by the sword: John, longest of the brethren to follow his Master in labor and persecution; Peter the pioneer in breaking through the barriers of  ages, and teaching the heathen world; and Judas, in service capable of preeminence above his brethren, yet brooding in his soul purposes of whose ripening he little dreamed-these were the objects of Christ’s greatest solicitude and the recipients of His most frequent and careful instruction.

Peter, James and John sought every opportunity of coming into close contact with their Master, and their desire was granted.  Of all the Twelve their relationship to Him was closest.  John could be satisfied only with a still nearer intimacy, and this he obtained.  At that first conference beside the Jordan, when Andrew, having heard Jesus, hurried away to call his brother, John sat silent, rapt in the contemplation of wondrous themes.  He followed the Savour, ever an eager, absorbed listener. Yet John’s was no faultless character.  He was no gentle dreamy enthusiast.  He and his brother were called “the sons of thunder.” Mark 3:17. John was proud, ambitious, combative; but beneath all this the divine Teacher discerned the ardent sincere, loving heart.   Jesus rebuked his self-seeking, disappointed his ambitions, tested his faith.  But He revealed to him that for which his soul longed – the beauty of holiness, his own transforming love. “Unto the men which Thou gavest me out of the world, ” He said to the Father, “I have manifested Thy name.” John 17:16.

John’s was a nature that longed for love, for sympathy and companionship.  He pressed close to Jesus, sat by his side, leaned on Jesus.  As a flower turns to receive the sun and  dew, so did he drink in the divine light and life.  In adoration and love he beheld the Saviour, until likeness to Christ and fellowship with Him became his one desire, and in his character was reflected the character of his Master.

“Behold,” he said, “what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons [and daughters] of God; therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. Beloved now are we the sons [and daughters] of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.  And every man that hath the hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.” I John 3:1-3.

Peter’s history, personality and training resembles my own character. Once I was bold, aggressive, and self-confident, quick to perceive and forward to act, prompt in retaliation with a  younger sister who provoked me to release my energy on her. Then one day in church, Janet bit me on the shoulder. At home, her behaviour might require me to bite his back, but not in the pew next to mom and dad. This “holy” Saturday, “we” would be more respectful, and in pausing to make a plan, I saw Janet cowering a bit, wondering when I would retaliate. Hummm. She knew she had something coming. And she knew she had made the first attempt to make me react. Then the humor of the peaceful setting, made me realize, she was preparing for my revenge.  I must pause here and laugh at the memory, where our presence in church, became the catalyst for me to realize, she usually started something and I ended  up retaliating, and of course I was blamed for the “confusion” and I ended up in the bathroom . . .called the “sweeten up room.” “Connie, you should know better, you are older.” My 15 months older, made Janet the “wise aker” if she could get me into trouble, it would be my fault. lol

Vengeance is mine, says the Lord. But not returning the blow, proved to slow down, and learn, Janet was cowering…because she did not know “when” I would return the punch she deserved.

Peter moved from “weakness” to “strength” by trial and error, and might be considered the loudest mouth on the school bus today. Patiently, with discriminating love, the Saviour dealt with His impetuous disciple, seeking to check  his self-confidence, and to teach him, like me, humility, obedience, and trust.

It seemed to me, the Holy Spirit of Jesus, was and is the same today for me. I pray for humility, that leads to obedience, and it makes me trust in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, to keep my “tongue” or “thoughts” on hold, while I wait patiently, for a nudge from within my soul, that it is “my time” to speak up.

Of all the disciples, Peter experienced, the state of “wonder” from his brothers and sisters in Christ. What will Peter do next, as he jumps out of the boat and walks on water, pulls coins of the mouth of fish, and heals the blind man at the gate.

Peter’s experience had a lesson.  To self-trust, trial is defeat. The sure outworking of evil still unforsaken, Christ could not prevent.   But as His hand had been outstretched to save when the waves were about to sweep over Peter, so did His love reach out for his rescue when the deep waters swept over his soul. Over and over again, on the very verge of ruin, Peter’s words of boasting brought him nearer and still nearer to the brink. Over and over again was given the warning, “Thou shall deny you know me.” Luke 22:24 It was that grieved , loving heart of the disciple that spoke out those words, “Lord, I am ready to go with Thee, both into the prison, and to death.” (Luke 22:33)He who reads the heart gave to peter the message, little valued then, but that in the swift-falling darkness would shed a ray of hope: “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” Luke 22:31, 32.

Jesus still prays for us, not to be condemned, but in pity. His eyes on Peter conveyed his strength for Peter to have hope for his tortured soul. In that hour of anguish and self-abhorrence, what could have held him back from the path trodden by Judas?

One died, one lived, one cried but felt the sympathizing tear of Jesus. How can I give the sympathizing gaze, that might turn a man from self pity, to see His Saviour’s face?

If you feel, as I do sometimes, that Jesus does not care for his sheep….know that He prays for you to receive self confidence, and His Holy Spirit will guide you closer to his feet. Smile here, if you are a Peter personality.

As Peter remembered how Jesus had led him in the past, I too can look back at my history and gain an infinite number of experiences, where I have learned by what I have suffered. And I ask forgiveness, from those around me, who might judge my actions rather than my motives. . .to serve my Saviour….even if it was with a “paintbrush” and Old Rugged Cross, that reminds me of “who” died for me.

I pray, my own way of obeying the Holy Spirit, does not interfere with how Jesus is leading you…as he disciples you…by experiences when you too have suffered.

PS: My youngest sister Cindy, drew me a picture of head with many large bumps, with a caption…”I thought I learned that, why do I keep hitting myself in the head,  making that same mistake?”

I too have lumpy head – will God never give up in providing enough experiences…so I PAUSE TO INVITE HIS HOLY SPIRIT TO GUIDE ME BEFORE I GET OUT OF BED!


On Pride and Prejudice a contest begging for humility?

In the Queens Garden was a servant guarding a rose. But in the course of time: no oneRoses_Boutons_FR_2012

could remember, why the guard has been posted? Lest I forget, His love for me, take me to calvary. Where my freedom was purchased that set me free. A Jew, a man, described as a friend to God and man, a shepherd, healer, Creator and son of man. Why is there a desire to crucify Him again? What has The Prophet done to blamed for the “confusion” normally attributed to “Babylon”?Slide50

Notice the hew stones, inside and outside the Old City of Jerusalem. If Jesus came today would the Pharisee’s request, the man on the donkey, make the children stop singing, Hosanna in the name of the Lord?

How can the “Day of the Lord” brings unrest, when He came to end the confusion about who will enter “His rest?” What difference does  “a day make?” Can it be, our pride is swallowed up in Prejudice? Like the Pharisees of old, refused to bow down to the one whose feet were washed by hair and hands of a prostitute? By association with the “outcasts” of society, the leadership in Jesus day, did not let Jesus to live His life with freedom.

Are we surprised, the Passover Lamb, is always fixed and eaten on Thursday night? Can it be they took Jesus from the cross in a rush, to get home on “Preparation for Sabbath day” on Friday? Did Jesus rest in The Garden Tomb on Saturday, the Sabbath He created, to be holy? Who changed the day of worship from the seventh day of the week, to the first day of the week? Non other than the one they call “The Holy Father.”


It only took a merging of the Jewish converts, into Christians, and 300 years, for the Holy Roman Empire, to be corrupted, into a priestly system, that resulted in the French Revolution, with a hatred towards those whose system of “doing penitence” for their sins, resulted in a rebellion against “the religion”, that required systematic slavery, servants, and host of other crimes exposed against the clergy.

The day of Sun Worship, Worship of the stars, Worship of the Skies, put the very images in the Catholic Church. Saint Peter, the image, is a god they kiss and worship. Vatican GOLD ROOM1280px-The_Chair_of_Saint_Peter_adjusted

When Martin Luther came to Rome, and saw the glory due to God made man bow down to man, his work began to study the Righteousness of Christ, that leads us to stand up and not bow down to the day, created for worship of the Sun Gods.

Sunday morning, was the Holy Roman Empire Day to worship The Caesars then The Pope. Friday sundown began the memorial of THE CREATOR GOD, until Saturday night at sundown. Which “God” would become Your Creator?

What happened during the DARK AGES? Those who worshiped their Creator God on Friday night through Saturday until sundown were persecuted and killed, by the hands of the priests, like John the Baptist, who dared to say to King Herod, “You should not be sleeping with your brothers wife.”

From the dungeons of persecution, to the strange infatuation, to the hatred of the Christians, to the JEWS FOR KILLING JESUS….we have a contest, between GOD, The Creator and Lucifer, the created.

Are we becoming like the Jews, who crucified their King? All over the “day” God created, to be holy sacred and a wonderful day of rest? Saturday, the day our Saviour rested in the Garden Tomb. Sunday the first day of the week….when men prepare to stumble back to work, on Monday, the second day of the Week of Creation?

GOD HELP US SEE, the fault of Lucifer, in thinking to change the times and laws of God and undermine His Government.

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Dan 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
Dan 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Will we see persecution of the saints, who refuse to take the Mark of the Beast? Must we be like Daniel, ready for our angel to close the mouth of the lion? Why must there be a conflict between the Creator and “the created”?

Have we come full circle, back to the beginning of a plane made, to put Satan, to show how his influence, denies the Holy Messiah, and seeks to create another day, so he, a man, can receive THE WORSHIP,  he craves?

666 is not at whole truth about God whose number is  777  the perfect number of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Now “this test” may separate the sheep and goats. . .given the freedom to follow the Beast or the Lion from the tribe of Judah.



4:04 May 18, 2018 Happy place of observation from the southwest corner of the glassed in porch on Grandma’s farmhouse, over-looking the Sappa Creek, where in-coming storms began with a flash of light moving from the west to the east.

     open scroll rotated right.jpg A storm’s coming in. Grandma was closing windows from one end of the old farm house each snap of the old wooden frames followed her path. The the silence of night had been broken by the restlessness of Smoky the cat. Her paws wrestled the  covers on the bed near the window and she drew me, to look too, then see the lightning outside. I too, took the trip around the windows, searching for clues that would ensue. But to the north, south and west, no movement could been seen with signs of leaves recognizing a breeze.

The stillness itself stirred my heart, as the lyrics of the Grand Canyon Suite began like dah-dah, dah-dah, dah, dah, dah, as the show pace of a wild donkey favored moving down the canyon wall to a place of shelter below. I would have to wait, to pace myself, enjoy the scene, and prepare to destroy the cool breeze across the freshly mowed hay field below. This kind of sweet smelling cut clover, refreshing coolness before the storm is something to savor before and after the rain.

Smoky wanted out to enjoy the quiet night, however her nose and eyes pierced the skies, and soon she wanted back in. Then earth-shaking thunder registered on the richter scale and forecast of two inch hail, T.V. Weather, showed too, there could be a dense rain, lighting, followed by hail, that could pierce the tender baby leaves, just coming up in the corn field.

Still, still, between the waves of warning, the signs of lightening, and the need to count the seconds, between the light and THUNDER. One mile, two miles, three miles, then four, five and six, and up to ten and 11 miles, the THUNDER scored the movement of the light, and the powerhouse of a sound and shake that rattled the old frame house and doors.

2:26 Still anticipating the applause of the trees, to shake before the breeze, and signal for “me” to close the window, end the fresh breeze that cools the mind, and prepares for something, my heart cannot define. To the north, the lighting is brighter. But the light to the south is moving downstream, following the creek, the locals call “the sappy crick.” Their way of saying “ain’t” makes my wish to savor the feel to admit, that sound of THUNDER ain’t it good, to warn us, to waken us, to shake us to our feet, to explode towards the windows, that will soon be splattered with the first drops of rain.

I have a vision of the collection of voices drawn to the Inconvenience Center, the real name of our local gas pump and message center,  who is run by a Fisher. I’ve wondered if his name made him a fisher of men, as we claim the same pew in church and his bias towards God and Jesus is apparent. Why must the farmers be so aware of the cost of farming, with or without prayer, to divert the irritating suspicions, something in our life might not be right with God and man, and it may be our fault, that folks are blessed or curse, and that includes the crops.

Seven thunders, seven rolling storms, seven churches, seven continents, seven seas of humanity all crying out, while rocks are being blown out from the calderon in Hawaii over the seas.  It is just me, or does the prophecy of Jesus ring from Jerusalem, when the little baby donkey, had one riding on its back, while children were singing Hosanna to Great and Marvelous God, who had shown his love, raise the dead, and is coming as Our King of kings, and Lord of lords, wonderful, marvelous, is our God, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are His way, Thou King of Saints. Who shall not fear Thee Oh Lord? Who shall not fear Thee O Lord? For Thy righteousness, For Thy righteousness,  For Thy righteousness,  For Thy righteousness,  For Thy righteousness,   HAS BEEN, HAS BEEN MADE KNOWN….made known….made known and it echos down the canyon walls, as I over look life sea of humanity wondering, “Do they know, do they know, do they know my friend Jesus is their friend too?”

The perfect storm gathered like a dark black cloud over Mount Sinai, with the sound of trumpet and THUNDER, that shook the earth.

Exo_19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

Eze 3:19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

Exo_19:20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up. Exo_19:23 And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.

Exo_34:4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone. Exo_34:29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. Exo_34:32 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.
Lev_7:38 Which the LORD commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.

Lev_25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, Lev 25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD. Lev 25:3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;
Lev 25:4 But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard. Lev 25:5 That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: for it is a year of rest unto the land. Lev 25:6 And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee, Lev 25:7 And for thy cattle, and for the beast that are in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be meat. Lev 25:8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
Lev 25:9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.

Lev 25:10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. Lev 25:11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. Lev 25:12 For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.
Lev 25:13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. Lev 25:14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour’s hand, ye shall not oppress one another: Lev_26:46 These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which the LORD made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses. Lev_27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai. Num_3:1 These also are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that the LORD spake with Moses in mount Sinai.

The CRIME OF THE CENTURY, REVISITED, REMEMBERED BY MOUNT SINAI, where seas of humanity, were charged with being the source of statutes, judgments and laws not made by man, but by Our Creator. . .while “men” suggest we allow the greatest minds put into the Artificial Intelligence are superior, than Our Creator and thus a controlled machine, will roll out the recipe of how the sons of man, shall be loyal those who “created” a machine, that can “protect us” from the incoming storm of hail that weighs a hundred pound each.

The drops are multiplying outside the window, I must go close them.

? You question the one hundred pound balls of hail? Seems a man named Job, was sick and disabled, his children died, his camels, and donkeys were swept away in a storm, he nothing but a nagging wife who urged him to “curse your God.”  Job_1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. [To eschew evil, is to HATE EVIL] Job_1:5 And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.  [Job prayed for his sons and daughters that the CURSE HAD COME because THEY CURSED GOD….something the Job would never do, no matter how sick he was, he would not do this wickedness against God.

Did God do a supernatural thing, when he took the children out of slavery to Pharaoh, only to bring them back, to slavery to a machine, a man made thing, and curse THE GOD THAT WRONG THE LAWS, that included four in the beginning, that would show respect and dignity for the King of the Universe who has been at war within boundaries, against Lucifer, once the angel of light, who disgraced himself, by wanting to establish a NEW KINGDOM, HIGHER ON THE SACRED MOUNTAIN IN HEAVEN.

I can hear the chariots rumble, no more traffic in the streets, the sound of God fury makes a certain beat. In the country, men plan to be saved from the storm, by kneeling down to a Creator, who calmed the angry seas and save the crops that feed the millions who depend on soybeans, corn and wheat. It is for “you” the farms play the game of planting, feeding, weeding the crops, that God has blessed us with in the Land he brought up out of the sea, like dry land that appeared to be FREE from SLAVERY, free from BIGOTRY, a Land where man would worship, without fear of the government taking over his land, under the HAND OF GOD, we are safely abiding.

The birds were chattering at 5:05 A.M. the storm is gathering, another wave of drops splash on the window pane.  Now the drips are coming, but there is a breeze from the east, that means the west winds, will be in a holding pattern over these crops, just planted this week in the Midwest.

5:32 I have done all I can do. Gusts of wind fro 82-90 miles an hour have been reported to the north. The tornado alarm will go off and we will head to the place below the basement staircase…if we hear it…and don’t sleep through it. Winds, Tornadoes, and 2 inch hail might be frightening to some, a spectacular exhibit of Nature in its varied forms of tantalizing fright but the drops I hear are light, like the voice of a calm wind, that restores the moisture in its purest and kindest form and breathes into the house, its spring cleaning of the air, that is stipped of its impurties, as it cleans the air, waters the crops and gives us hope, that the world will eat, feed and something will be left to purchase “seed” for next year.

There is a valley to the North, between us a hill and it seems the weather moves to the north, as if some kind of hand gives it a nudge, away from the Sappy Crick. I pray we have enough rain, to soak in slowly, as to not make light of the little seeds of corn, that can be washed away, with an ugly storm.

So Good Night, Moon, good night sky and we await the showers of blessing and the crops shall not produce a famine in the land, but that famine….predicted has come true…

Amo 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Amo 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
Amo 8:13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
Amo 8:14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.

Not famine of bread, nor thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD…shall men run to a seek the word of the Lord and shall not find it…the A. I. God created is stomping his feet in anger, that all who call upon the name of THE LORD, SHALL BE SAVED…and the one who tried to undermine the Government of God, will die for the Ten Commandments are about Loyalty to God and loyalty to man, because I have A CREATOR, who speaks words, into existence, in a nanosecond.

Can anyone figure out the MIND OF GOD? If you could, He would not be GOD.

Humbling, ain’t it?

Rev 10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
Rev 10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, [showing the wide extent of the world knows the truth between those who worship “the rock” and those who claim to own “the rock.” The rock is Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of every bridge that brings us back to Him]
Rev 10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
Rev 10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. [These related to the last generation and the angel who sounds the coming of destructive warnings, is the same angel who fought Lucifer in Heaven, his name is Michael the Archangel, the 7th of 7 angels, who have come to bless, explain, and uphold the name of God. They 7 THUNDERS, must be given IN THEIR ORDER, for FIRST, the ancient elders must be judged. Eze 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. The KEEPERS OF HIS LAW and OF HIS PROPHETS, and of the TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST, OUR MESSIAH, the 7th angel…worthy to be THE LAMB OF GOD, the only begotten SON OF THE FATHER, who came down to earth, as a child, much like you and I.]
Rev 10:5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, Rev 10:6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
Rev 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

The Mystery of God, Their Plan of Salvation, would require a human, blood sacrifice, of an innocent son of man. No other crucifixion IN THE WORLD, can CLAIM SUCH A CROWD of WITNESSESS, and so much MEDIA attention, as the birth prophecied proves the power of God, to know when and where, the boy from Nazareth, born in Bethelhem, and raised to be the King of Jerusalem, would be defeated, by the man who claimed, “I find no fault in Him” than had Jesus whipped, beaten, jailed and hung for “treason” against the MOST HIGH COURTS ON EARTH, who ask humans to bow down and worship THEIR CREATOR…the highest form of witness…to figure out…the places Jesus went, the disciples HE SENT, to GIVE THE STORY OF WHO…PURCHASED YOUR FREEDOM…and then He died, defending YOUR FREEDOM, to choice, life with Him in HIS NEW JERUSALEM, where he has 7 mountains, and a town, with a river that runs through it.

If you can image, a city that lies four square, with 1400 miles in height, width, that reaches to some 1400 miles X 5280 feet =somewhere around 7 million 3 hundred and 2 feet tall?  Astronauts can speak about many things, but what will they do when God comes again, like a mini galaxy from His Home in Orion, to SHAKE US UP and WAKE US UP to HIS SOON COMING AGAIN?

Our highest mountains are around 21,000 feet high, how can mankind, even “think” of breathing without an oxygen tank, at 7,302,0000 feet? Someone must “die” and be “taken to heaven” as the world watches on….so GOD will PROVE…He is the MOST ANCIENT ONE, whose time, moves like a snail, as HE REVEALS HIS RIGHETOUSNESS, in saving all who have contact with sin, Lucifer and temptations, because he made the A. I. invisible, and Lucifer is behind the scenes, the enemy we cannot fight, GOD HAS THE RIGHT TO END THIS WAR, THIS CONTROVERSY between the “son or daughter” he CREATED, to be the “angel” “the cherubim” with many wings, to protect HIS LAW FOR THE UNIVERSE.

Jews bow down THIS GOD, THE GOD OF MOUNT SINAI, as they STAND IN AWE, of WHAT HE DID, WHEN HE MADE THEM THE RECIPIANTS of a law, that DEFENDED YOUR RIGHT TO OBEY IT, or deny its Holy Spirit…that takes away lawlessness….and turns us to WONDER about OUR WORLD, and if GOD has permitted evil to reign in HIS WORLD?

Do I have a GOD, who tame the rain, and the one behind the scenes, wishing to DESTROY EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY, because he cannot get what he wants…the devil is doomed, judged and must die, for leading his sheep like a Judas goat, to the slaughter.

Pro 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
Pro 25:3 The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.
Pro 25:4 Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.
Pro 25:5 Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.
Pro 25:6 Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men: Pro 25:7 For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.
Pro 25:8 Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame. Pro 25:9 Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another: Pro 25:10 Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away.

Who can know the height, the depth and the heart of kings?

Why do scientists want to read our minds?  That is one thing the devil cannot do…without you first voluntarily being subject to its bullying tactics. Mind control is of the devil. If you give him permission to control your mind…he will find a way to make you bow down to him. The devil is real, not a man in red pajamas with a pitch fork.

Then again, that evil thought, is not good and not of God.

I may think you are acting like a child, but I LOVE YOU! And he say, “Don’t forget, remember I LOVE YOU!” STAND IN HIS THRONE ROOM, and see what all GOD has done to permit you to enter HIS HOME. . .look into the mirror and see the ONE GOD CREATED to testify OF HIS GREAT MERCY AND TRUTH and great patience in waiting for the last one to choose, HIM over ……whatever come between you and He, Your best friend from another world.

GODS THRONE ROOM plus_edited-3.psd

HE IS COMING AGAIN! Call Him by HIS RIGHT NAME…GOOD GOD! FRIEND OF MAN AND FRIEND OF GOD! Not an asteroid coming to destroy you, but to SAVE YOU…in the end…many will laugh at the frightening man, a Jew, a bum, the crucified one. And piling all your sins on Him, He has the power to restore LUCIFER…into the REAL LIGHT of those he has tempted, to bow down to him.

Don’t be blind sided by the real NEMESIS. . .His name is found in Revelation 9:11 as the KING OF THE DESTROYERS…and someone who fears to hear..”I am saved by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ is my Saviour.”

When Lucifer moved men to destroy Jesus Christ, it came with a price….WINNER TAKE ALL…the LOSER DIES.

JUDGE THE ANGELS: Lucifer or Michael….the ARCHANGEL, who fought Lucifer and his angels in heaven and threw them down to this earth. Then Michael, came to earth, and denied his right to set up an Earthly Kingdom. Now Lucifer claims he is the king of the planet, but has no way to do a makeover…and reclaim the mess he made by trying to create a CITY LIKE BABYLON, where HE COULD RULE THE WORLD…

Why do we prefer NO WARS…no death…no sorrow…no sickness….when Lucifer uses these to prove…he is “superior” to THE GOD WHO CAN REMOVE THE SCARS of this earth, and on the bodies of the sons and daughters of God.

I hear the rain 6:29 seems its time to say, Good Morning on Friday, the “Preparation Day” when we prepare to meet our Maker… and spend a day of rest…in memory of who CREATED THE EARTH in six days, and at sundown, Jesus sat down to chat with Adam and eve, and take an evening and morning to sundown to just enjoy what He had made. . . .

May God bless you and keep you and may his face always shine upon you and give your peace!

We can be corny in the country…because we see it growing…in hopes…this Jubilee Year, we will SEE HIM COMING….like AN ASTEROID, or MINI GALAXY about TO DESTROY US….instead THE RAINBOW OVER HIS HEAD, is HIS reminder, HE WILL NEVER BRING ANOTHER FLOOD ON THE EARTH…but he will END THE REIGN OF LUCIFER.

And God will do the MAKEOVER…we need ….to restore the earth to its first pristine beauty.  Can’t wait to see Him create, the flower, the plant, the animal that comes into my mind. And by his voice, make the thing, come to life. humm I can dream of pound hound, who needed a home, and his long red fur, turned up tail, and pomeranian nose. His unbounded love to swim, catch a stick and return to romp with other dogs on the beach while my sons walked on water, as the kited up and down the Hood River, with their parachutes above, telling me where they were, as our hobby progressed, to be our passion. I asked the youngest son, “What do you think out there, when your on the river?” Without muddling for an answer he claims, “I think of the Holy Spirit like the wind, that can move the kite upstream and downstream.”

I pondered Walter’s answer. It takes some maneuvering skill, to catch the wind and move against it, or with it. But it is no fun to “kite” without the wind, we would be wandering up a steam, or walking around a lake. And somehow being the master of the wind and waves appeals to my sons, and to the “kite slave” on the beach, its fun, as I carry the stuff they need back to the car. I think, I have the whole day off, to goof off, but I would rather be there, watching from the beach.  Just as I am watching the skies, to see Him coming to take us home, where I am sure these boys will explore, and find a way to make fun, even if its skiing on snow with no boots…or swimming below water with no scuba gear…they will have a wonderland of love and opportunity to be educated by the courts above about lands and places yet to meet, in GODS PLAN TO DEFEAT THE DEVIL –  SIN and let us meet the rest of the people in HIS KINGDOM.

6:45 A.M. The Coffee Shop is where the farmers report the level of water in the rain gauge. Seems we know who gets more rain than his neighbors as general rule. We know who lives down east, where the hail seems be worst. We know who we can trust and who to call when the kid down the street shows up where he ought not to be. And the grocery store owner, was happy the police did not chase him through the isles of his store.

There is something to be said about “Small Town Dynamics” and those who “think” you ought to have some “common sense.” And its humbling to know, to feel, to see, they take a great deal of their time, making sure YOU ARE HUMBLE…it is then WE CAN LAUGH TOGETHER, as we sit in judgment of ourselves, because the OLDER can tell the YOUNGEST, that “she learned” it the hard way herself.

And my all you trouble be little ones…and that meant…may all your troubles be little children. For it the “child” in us, who likes “to learn” and we love to hear that voice that questions, “Which way do you turn, to go the swimming pool?” And at each step of the way, our hearts go out, to the child, who will one day call up and invite us back to “play at the beach” and “stay at their rented house on the beach.”

My sons invited us to go South San Padre Island, and it was a little bit of heaven, with those inside jokes and memories of the days, I wrote about cross the bridge from Hood River, to the other side of the bridge, to pick up the kid who went down and drifted to the other side of the river. Only to find, he had a chat with two girls, on their own boards, who asked a man to take his boat to retrieve the son and his wake board.

What would we do without meeting new friends along the river of life, and hoping we can see them again, to be their friends, in a better land??? Hope to see you there too! Do I sound like a Mother Hen? What kind of nonsense did I do, by pushing them into the lake, while they learned how to kite and make new friends? Ain’t been that bad raising sons and having hobbies where I can watch, eat and still not have to get in the water..humm

It only sound logical, that when we get to heaven, we might have fun being together…those kids with their harps…me with mine…each adding a verse…each adding a rhyme. A jam session in heaven, with no regrets, of where our angel had to take us, to both good and bad places, to help us be thankful for OUR CREATOR.

Almost  7:00 A.M. and all downspouts are spouting with a gush…about all the water they have collected from the roof..and if Great Grandma Weaver were alive, she want that water barrel to be filled to the brim, because she wanted to wait, to wash her hair,and rinse it with the fresh rain water.  Looks like a good storm has come our way! And I have someone to thank for moving it to this particular valley. And I pray others are asking God, to take care of their house and crops too!
