When’s the last time you saw this?

Another reason to keep the Sabbath: The human soul must feed itself with the beauty of God’s creation. So many people have never had the chance to learn for its own sake. Many people were badly taught in school- and this killed the love of knowledge early on. Studying for tests isn’t really about the love of learning. Then, as adults, we become obsessed with the business of clothing, feeding and finding/keeping shelter over our and our families’ heads. This usually involves never leaving the confines of our homes, the highway and then the work office. When, during all of this did you see the stars? When did you see gaseous nebulae? When did you observe the remarkable patterns in the stones? The flying manes of horses? the glory of the sea? When did you smell pine trees or watch bees up close? When was the last time you saw a bumble bee with all the pollen balls on their legs? God’s creation is massive- both in the diminutive and the grand. On both sides of the scale, the detailing is to die for. Just looking at both ends of God’s spectrum leaves us breathless with endless wonder. It almost breaks the human mind to take it all in!

If we never take a day of rest, all we will see is MAN’S creation! And that is enough to depress anyone. If you do take a day of rest and spend your time looking, seeking, smelling, listening and thinking about what God has made, you can’t help but find God. I have always held that any good scientist must naturally conclude that God exists. The mathematical odds are overwhelming. If we spend our time just looking at nature for any amount of time, we find God. And finding God is all we need. If God exists (and he does), then the bible is true. And if the bible is true, then Jesus is God’s Son. And if Jesus is God’s Son, then all his promises are true. And if all his promises are true, then this life is a mere nanosecond of our true lifespan. And all evil will pass away- like a bad dream never remembered. And if all that is true, then all the marvel- from the whirling colors of space nebula to the infrastructure of diamond crystals were all made so that mankind could enjoy it for a mere blip of time- and that shows that GOD is the most generous, creative, amazing and loving God that could ever be! ALL THIS for us to live a teeny, tiny time. Just for our pleasure. And doesn’t that just tickle you to death?

Take some time to see what God has made for YOU. Keep the Sabbath. I don’t think it matters one iota which day you choose. But take a whole day and dedicate it to rest, pleasure, love and time with God. Rather than taking time away from your busy schedule, you will see that you have added an infinity of time to it. Be blessed!

Ok, listen up America, World.  This story is TRUE.  I wish people who wrote articles like the one on Top Right News and Allen West.com would actually take the trouble of providing proof for their allegations.  I am writing this blog to do just that for you.   Both articles open by showing Bob Bergdahl’s damning tweets that throw suspicion on his intentions- namely that he is a Taliban sympathizer.  They would go as far as to question whether both father and son Bergdahl were in a conspiracy with Obama to free Taliban leaders from Gitmo.  To date, I find no proof of any conspiracy between Obama and the Bergdahls, but the rest of the Top Right News article has definitely proven to be true.   My article will offer up definitive proof for the facts surrounding Bergdahl’s ‘capture’ and release.  (This article has taken me all day- my day off, I might add.  I do wish these news writers would do their job instead of leaving it up to people like me!)

First, here are the tweets from Bob Bergdah (the father of Bowe Bergdah, who was recently traded for 5 taliban terrorist leaders from Gitmo) which imply he is a Taliban/Muslim sympathizer.

Fullscreen capture 622014 73954 PM.bmp tweet one





I would contend that the Tweets of father are real and are not created.  No one has disputed these tweets, thus I will accept their reality.  They have been removed recently.  The Top Right News contends that Bob Bergdahl spoke in Pashto and that Obama hugged him afterward.   Both facts have been proven TRUE.  Here is the entire press conference.  Look to 4:02 minutes to see Bob Bergdahl speak.  I can’t tell you if the Top Right News translation is true, however, as I don’t speak the language.

The Top Right news article proposes that Bob Bergdahl was a sympathizer to the Taliban.  Here is proof of that- Bob Bergdahl made a Youtube video speaking to the Pakistani Taliban.

It is clear that when he said his son was being exploited, he was talking about America, not Pakistan.  He also tells the captors that he ‘understands the rationale” behind the propaganda videos in which their son appears.  Note the long beard which he claims he has grown to be in sympathy with his son- I see Islam in that beard.  To me, there is something terribly wrong with Bergdahl’s father.

Proof that Bowe Bergdahl went AWOL voluntarily- he was not captured on the ‘battlefield’.  He was a derserter.:

  • The Pentagon confirms Bergdahl went AWOL in 2010
  • Soldiers who served with him openly accuse him of desertion and are calling for him to now face charges.  They say that Bergdahl is no hero- that he is a traitor that endangered soldiers’ lives by intentionally going AWOL one night which forced his unit and others to search for him in dangerous situations.  Six soldiers died trying to recover him.
  • Here is the mentioned  Rolling Stones 2012 article.  The article bases its story content on interviews with the Bergdahl family- including access to their private emails.  I believe these emails exist.  CBS also believed they exist and reported as accurate in this article.  To add further credence to this Rolling Stone article about Bergdahl in 2012,  Michael Hastings , the author of the article was killed within the year after writing the Bergdahl story . (This is the same author whom people claim brought down General Stanley McChrystal. )  People who tell the truth about powerful people tend to die quickly.   These emails prove:
    • Bergdahl’s disillusionment and intent to go AWOL.
    • His father sent back an email giving him permission to do so.
    • Bergdahl sent all belongings home 3 days prior to leaving unit.
    • He spoke with his superior officer about leaving with his sensitive equipment right before deserting.
    • He spoke to other soldiers about going AWOL before doing so.
    • Bergdahl had a bizarre childhood with a bizarre mother & father which led to a weak mental & emotional state as an adult:
      • His father worked construction, his mother odd jobs, living the life of ski bums, nearly off the grid.
      • Was completely isolated from others.  Was home-schooled with heavy emphasis on Calvinist thinkers like  Thomas Aquinas and St. Augustine. “Ethics and morality would be constant verbiage in our conversations,” his father recalls.
      • Became obsessed with survivalist methods along with his father.
      • Developed a strong fantasy life where he was the prime adventurer on the high seas.  His father tells of how Bergdahl began to fantasize constantly about high adventure where he would be the great hero/humanitarian.  He became a constant day dreamer, drifting from one obsession to the next.
      • He left home and began to obsess about fencing.
      • He began obsessing about Buddhism and Tarot cards after meeting a dancer whose mother also partook of those beliefs.
      • Obsessed about joining the French Foreign legion.  He moved to France and studied French intensely but was turned down. “He was absolutely devastated when the French Foreign Legion didn’t take him,” his father said. “They just didn’t want an American home-schooled in Idaho. They just said no way.”
      • Began to obsess about British adventurers.  “He is Bear Grylls in his own mind,” recalls his father
      • Worked years at coffee shop, dreaming of adventure.
      • In 2008, Father and son obsessed about going to Africa with a friend’s missionary team to “teach “self-defense techniques” to villagers being targeted by brutal militias like the Lord’s Resistance Army. He and his father even fantasized about the creation of a special ­operations unit to “kill these fucks” in Africa, imagining that “someone needed to run an op with some military people dressed up like U.N. people” to take out warlords in Darfur and Sudan.
      • Joined the US Army in Oct. 2008 as a means to fulfill his hero/adventurer fantasies.  He felt he was going to ‘free’ the Afghanistan people and rebuild their nation.
    • Bergdahl quickly became disillusioned. Other soldiers didn’t like him. He spoke of going AWOL almost from the beginning.

“When he first got to the unit, he was the leadership’s pet. He read the Ranger Handbook like no other. Some people resented him for it.” Bowe kept to himself, doing physical training on his own. “He never hung out with anyone, always in the background, never wanted to be in front of anything,” says Fry. He surrounded himself with piles of books, including Three Cups of Tea, about a humanitarian crusade to educate girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan, as well as instructions on Zen meditation and an introductory ethics handbook with writings from Aristotle, Augustine, Kant and Hume.
“He wanted to be a mercenary, wanted to be a free gun,” says Fry.
” Almost as soon as he joined his fellow soldiers, he began to gravitate away from his unit. “He spent more time with the Afghans than he did with his platoon,” Fry says. His father, recalling that time, would later describe his son to military investigators as “psychologically isolated.”
Fry (a fellow soldier) remembers hearing “all kinds of crazy stories about him.” He often came across more like a boy on an adventure than a soldier preparing for war.”
Soldiers ridiculed him by calling him “SF”, meaning ‘special forces”- referring to his strange intensity.
Soldiers ridiculed his affectation of putting pipe, unlit, into his mouth. It spoke to a man living in a fantasy of his own imagining.

  • That Sean Smith of the Guardian’s photo essay on Bergdahl’s unit caused a Pentagon backlash on it. The Pentagon punished Bergdahl’s unit for its lack of discipline (ie, lack of proper uniform among others) Photos # 20, 22, 23, 27, and 34) Ironically, one photo shows Bergdahl with his silly pipe. It proved as the ‘final straw’ for Bergdahl.
  • That Bob Bergdahl was in agreement with son’s disillusionment. ” “We were given a fictitious picture, an artificially created picture of what we were doing in Afghanistan.” says Bob.
  • That the Pentagon and Obama intentionally covered up the entire event. “In what appears to be an unprecedented move, the Pentagon also scrambled to shut down any public discussion of Bowe. Members of Bowe’s brigade were required to sign nondisclosure agreements as part of their paperwork to leave Afghanistan. The agreement, according to Capt. Fancey, forbids them to discuss any “personnel recovery” efforts – an obvious reference to Bowe. According to administration sources, both the Pentagon and the White House also pressured major news outlets like The New York Times and the AP to steer clear of mentioning Bowe’s name to avoid putting him at further risk. “
  • The Pentagon knew he was AWOL as early as 2010 but lied and listed him merely as ‘missing’ and have even promoted him in absència. “Officially, Bowe remains a soldier in good standing in the United States Army. He has continued to receive promotions over the past three years, based on his time in uniform, and he now holds the rank of sergeant.”

Lastly, here is part of the first hostage video from Bergdahl.  To me, he seems detached and non fearful.  His plea at the end is very strange and fake.  He certainly doesn’t fear death or torture.  He seems almost chipper.

The Rolling Stone article contends that Bergdahl was not staying with the Taliban voluntarily- that he attempted to run away.  I believe that.  But that doesn’t make him less a traitor.  It just makes him stupid.  He thought he could sympathize with the Muslims and that they would not hurt him.  Well, he was wrong.  I believe that Bergdahl was never really emotionally well or balanced.  I believe he was abused by his parents and denied a normal childhood.  Perhaps he has a genetic mental instability which his father apparently has as well.   For that, I feel for him.  His parents isolated him and then cultivated a bizarre man to grow out of their strange lifestyle.  That he went AWOL so casually shows that he had no understanding of  reality.  He didn’t understand that he would be determinedly pursued and found by the Army one way or the other; that he would face imprisonment even if he wasn’t captured by the Taliban; that the Muslims would use and abuse him despite his infantile sympathy for them and that he would eventually be used as a tool for the Progressives in America.  This story has many levels and we should strive to understand them all.  The bottom line is this:  Bush and Obama are criminals for bringing a focus-less and useless war to the Middle East and to our soldiers.  That being said, soldiers don’t get to go AWOL under any circumstances-  regardless of their consciences.  They can stay in their unit and refuse to obey- go to Leavenworth as a conscientious observer- but they must live up to their commitment to our nation.  We have elites in this world who care nothing for American life, Pakistani life, Iraqi life or anyone’s life.  They care only for their own ambition of ruling the world.  Within this framework, we have individual stories that can curl your toes.  Bergdahl’s is one of them.  Pray for God to intervene in this sorry world, friends.  He is the only sanity left.

heaven copyI just missed my first Sunday because of work (the farmer’s market I told you about). I have actually missed a couple of Sundays before this because of other reasons- so this last one really hurt. To make it right, I had decided to make a different day my ‘God day, my rest day’. That was to be yesterday. I watched the recorded service (which was outstanding as usual), but still didn’t feel right. I watched my pastor speak with his usual unlimited passion for Christ and realized how much I missed his friendly face. Up close and personal. I missed his hug and his hearty welcome. I also realized that I missed the fellowship of church. Celebrating God alone is just not the same. It is as if we were created to be TOGETHER, not apart. I can and do praise God everyday. (How can I not? The wonder of God is everywhere.) But there is just something different about corporate worship. Know what I miss the most about church? All those smiling and friendly smiles and calls of, “Hey, Susan, what’s up?” along with those great, hearty hugs. I love talking to my pastors and friends afterward. I miss raising my hands up in worship and praise during the music part of the service. I miss praying corporately to God to be among us through the Holy Spirit. I miss feeling the Holy Spirit wash like waves over and through our bodies. There is just nothing like that in this world. That is the moment of true belonging. That is the moment where we are existing, where we are being, exactly what we were created to be- together in the love and grace of God.

Watching a sermon online afterwards just doesn’t cut it.

I have believed (and still do) that the meaning of ‘church’ is the corporate Body of all believers in the world- no matter what crevice they may be in. WE are all the Body of Christ. WE are the church Christ will come to redeem forever. Church is NOT a building, a denomination or a set of doctrines. It is all of us together in spirit. No mountain or mighty river can separate us from God or from each other. So if you are alone somewhere out there without a church building near you, you are STILL in the true church- in the Body of Christ. Mere faith is all you need to qualify for membership.

HOWEVER, since I found a living, breathing church full of genuine love, I have amended my prior beliefs. While you are still part of the corporate Body of Christ, you just aren’t as happy as within a real crowd of Jesus lovers. You really aren’t. When and how else can you feel the Holy Spirit ripple through the crowd? When can you share in that powerful feeling of everyone praying to God together? When can you sense the pleasure of God looking down upon his people who are worshiping his name? Where else can you know that people will forgive your stupidity- if not by choice, then through the fear of God? Where else are you greeted with such genuine smiles? When are you hugged by near strangers- just because you are their adopted sister or brother in Christ? No, we are made to be together with one another. We were never meant to be alone.

I, of all people, should already know this. When I was walking through my personal desert for about twenty years, did I not come to know what loneliness meant? How completely unnatural it felt? Our souls shrivel up when we are not connected meaningfully to other souls. It suffers when there are no other souls who love it. We will all have our deserts- not even Jesus avoided the desert. It is most definitely a part of the human journey, that desert. But the desert can’t last forever lest we should die the soulful death. I was once parched with thirst- almost dead in my suffering. Finding my church (and by that, I mean the people in the church), made me fresh again. My soul was restored in faithfulness and gladness. My thirst disappeared and had been forgotten.

Until this Sunday. I felt it niggling at the edge of my sight. I felt it lurking there. As I watched brilliant Christian Lindbeck speak his brilliant thoughts, the thirst did not slack. “It’s not enough,” whispered my spirit, “It’s not enough.”

God didn’t say to keep the Sabbath for his sake. It wasn’t only to honor him with our time. Think about it. The command is to rest, not worship. We always worship (or should, anyway). We are to rest- to rest in God. To rejuvenate US. God’s command to rest one day a week was to feed us, not him. WE need the Sabbath, not God. And we need others with us on the Sabbath. We were not meant to be alone. No. Someday, we will all always be together. No more divisions between God and man. No more walls- neither physical nor spiritual- will divide us from one another. That craving desire to simply ‘be’ within each other will finally be satisfied. We will never feel vulnerable or afraid to know another human being again. No, someday, we will truly know each other and take delight in each others unique being. There will be no jealously or shame – no fear that someone might not like us for who we ‘really’ are. I am sure, very sure, that we are meant to worship corporately. Not alone. We can, of course, be alone in our worship- but it is not the intended goal. Our souls yearn for love- we must love and be loved.

It’s not worth it to miss church regularly for any reason. The only one who gets hurt is you. Truly, nothing on this earth or in this temporary state of human life can fill you like worshiping God with your sisters and brothers in Christ can. Jesus assured us that heaven is within our midst if we but had the eyes to see it. I have seen it. I still see it. And it is at church during worship. For those of you who have not yet found your church family, I do pray that you will. You may believe that being alone in your worship is enough. But it is not. Keep looking. Have faith. Someday God will deliver you from that lonely desert if you ask it of him. And when he does, don’t throw it away because you will be throwing away your bit of heaven on this earth. Nothing, certainly not money, is worth that.

Friends, Jesus is right around the corner. I have been telling you this rather frantically because I know (having been a management consultant in the international telcom business for over 12 years) that the technology is ready. Only a few more steps are necessary to implement the Mark. The next step is get everyone to buy in. To do this, everyone needs a unique ID- it will probably be issued as a ‘national ID card’ but will actually be programmed so that it can accommodate the entire world’s population without redundancy. It will be implemented country by country and won’t look like one database- but it will be. Biometrics will be linked to that ID. The other steps necessary to prevent people from buying and selling already have their basic skeleton in place. Obamacare is the final step. It forced every doctor’s and every dentist’s office to be fully digitized and online by 2014. These records have almost all your information- including gun ownership.  And let’s face it, your doctor gets your DNA every time you pee in a cup or draw blood.   Military service databases exist already- all ‘dangerous’ and potential commanders of a People’s rebellion will be taken down immediately- they know where these people live. The 23 executive orders (issued directly after Sandy Hook) allow every citizen to be labeled in any way one man, Eric Holder, wishes them to be labeled. Based on that label, you can be treated differently under the law. Your children can be taken from you and you will not have any legal recourse to get them back. Obama’s cyber-security bill allows every single computer in the United States and abroad (if they use American software or hardware like Google, IBM or Apple) to be loaded up with data packet analysis programs that have the ability to stop any kind of data transfer they like. They can stop anything from a single person or any words like, ‘torture’, ‘assassination’,  etc so that no news of government crackdown can leave a particular locale.  An entire city could be attacked by government mercenaries and the world will not know about it.   The NDAA 2012 bill allows Eric Holder and Obama to name a specific person in the United States so that the full might of the US military can be brought against them.  Bush played his part in this treachery by creating ‘enemy combatant’ and applying it unconstitutionally to Jose Padilla.   Obama is working on a new NDAA bill for 2014 that will allow him to strip this individual of their citizenship and be sent to any location overseas.  All trouble makers can easily be arrested in the night and no one will ever see them again.

ALL THESE LAWS ARE IN PLACE.  Complete and utter treachery can be conducted against the American people and it will be LEGAL.   All the technology is in place. The only thing holding these people back is the difficulty of getting the entire world (starting with the USA) to agree to receiving a unique identifier. SSN isn’t adequate as it is too small to issue a unique id to the entire world. So how will they do this:? Easy. There needs to be a shocking disaster that frightens Americans into desiring security over freedom. Namely, several suitcase nukes going off simultaneously in cities around America.  We will see that the terrorists came through the Mexican border.   Then, the Republicans will demand the closure of the Mexican border- a new National ID Card will pass easily in Congress. While all this is happening, the dollar will be removed as the oil currency. Or it will be severely threatened by the Chinese renminbi or euro. The disaster will send stocks plummeting. Desperation will ensue and the people will agree to a consolidation of currency with other north and south American countries. Here enters a new currency to lift America out of the ashes. Money will become fully digitized. All will be the perfect solution- then all purchases can be made with your body- the ultimate safe transaction. This will solve immigration problems with Mexico- it will stop all welfare fraud.  In addition, it will stop voter fraud- no one can pretend to be anyone else- (the GOP will be applauding) AND it will end terrorism in America- because no terrorist can be here secretly. Even if they were, they couldn’t get a hotel room or even buy groceries here. The American People will rejoice- salvation will be near and everyone will love Obama because he will lead the world out of the horror of these events. Not only will your Christian friends take the Mark, they will ask you why you don’t- it will look completely sane and efficient.   The problem will be that all true Christians will understand the unique identifier as the Mark. We will be few. We will look completely irrational. We will look like crazy survivalists and no one will help us. They will say, “Well, if you are too dumb and superstitious to use your own money to feed your kids, you are criminal.  YOU are preventing a safer, saner world from emerging.  YOU are the problem.  And your children must be taken out of your custody before they die of starvation. ”   And if our children get very sick, we will look like those crazy people who refuse to use modern medicine to help their children.  Oh, yes, we will be the ding bats.  Our faith will be severely tested.  We will literally need to hide to keep our kids.

I hope you can see how this all works. It is a simple, brilliant- and utterly predictable path the progressives are taking. We can’t stop it-  I say this because it is a fact, not because I am negative. We are already helpless before it.  The media is fully corrupt, digital elections are rigged and the American People are asleep.   They know this. They are out in the open- tightening the noose. We need God’s help- just as the bible predicted. I know that all this CAN happen in our lifetime. Both politically and technically. So my view is this: evil is impatient. If it CAN happen, it WILL happen- asap!  Evil people crave their reward of power and wealth.  Once the pieces are in place, they will not waste a minute to implement. So, since it CAN happen in our lifetime, it WILL happen in our lifetimes. I can’t fight the logic of that. So, be ready.

doctrinePeople who don’t read the bible become victims of church doctrine. They also become brittle, easily broken by anyone who contradicts what they know (which isn’t much). They easily fall apart and panic- not knowing which leader to believe and which to follow. They can end up at a point in their life where they no longer know what they believe- and that can put them in mortal fear of death. There is no real strength in doctrine. Just empty brained obedience and chanting.  Perhaps it once served a purpose- but that time is no longer.  We are past the need for bread.  We now need the meat.

Many have heard the word, ‘doctrine’, and have no idea what it really means. I saw a comment, once,  from a woman who said, “There is one thing we do not question- and that is church doctrine!” I truly wanted to put my head in my hands. She had no idea what she was talking about. And that grieved me. Doctrine is exactly like the ‘for Dummies’ books. You know, like, ‘Calculus for Dummies’ or ‘SAT for Dummies’ or ‘WWIII for Dummies’. Doctrine is ‘The Bible for Dummies’. It is the shortened, crystallized summation of the copious, overflowing wisdom that is the bible into a series of error filled bullet points. The bible is already as short as it can be made. It can’t be shortened by a word. It already sums up all humanity in relation to God in one place! Not an easy feat. In fact, an impossible feat! The bible is a miracle of clarity and conciseness. To further shorten it is to err in understanding. Doctrine is always wrong for this reason.

Doctrine has been used by church leaders throughout the centuries to help people understand the basics of their faith. It has also been used to prevent heresy or major misunderstandings in the flock. But like all things made by man, it has also been abused in order to control the People and enrich the church.  Doctrine and cults go hand in hand for this reason. Watching the history of doctrine and all the injuries that have arisen because of it, I can see why God admonished us from adding or subtracting even one word to or from the bible.

I suppose doctrine once had a valuable place in the church. When the early church began, the bible manuscripts were extremely rare. Many people were illiterate even if the manuscripts were available. The Dark Ages didn’t fare much better. Books were hand written and incredibly expensive. There wasn’t a bible for everyone so the priests had to give instruction to hundreds in a short amount of time. Perhaps the Bible for Dummies was needed then. But we are no longer in those days.   It is time to grow up.

I believe that God has fully intended for the human race to proceed and grow in our knowledge of him and his Son exactly as we have. It might look like slow progress, but when I look backward, I can see the exquisite planning behind all that God has done. Everything from first selecting only one People from the earth with whom to form a deep bond to the persecution  and expulsion of the early Christians out to the rest of the world- thus bringing God to everyone.  Each step offered only so much information to digest.  And when the people were ready for the next bite, God gave them another.   First God gave the Law to condemn us and teach us that we needed a Savior.  He gave us over a thousand years to truly get that concept and then, he sent our Savior.  Ta-dah!   Each knowledge step had its timing and its perfect purpose. God’s timing was calculated to introduce new knowledge to mankind at distinct points in history. I believe we are at a new point in that journey.  Time to nix doctrine and time to digest the WORD.

We are now able to study the Word easily and without any cost at all. We have about 7000 years of hindsight. We have thousands of people who have read, analyzed and pondered the bible’s meaning. We are at the time of human maturity. This is what I believe. Men no longer have any excuse at all to be ignorant of the actual Word of God. And we may no longer use the Reader’s Digest version of the bible. Christ himself severely warned us to not add one word- not even one stroke of a pen- to the bible. Nor to take one out. I believe he meant this with all his heart.

Creating and following doctrine is the exact opposite of what Christ warned. It adds many words and pen-strokes to God’s Word. It contaminates the perfect Word with human understanding (ha!). Whole churches are being led into terrible sin because the congregation is not exhorted to read the bible. Because they do not know the Word, they can be told anything and they will believe. They put their trust into one man, the pastor or priest, instead of God.    There is only one way to know God’s mind and heart- the bible.

This is how cults can succeed so brilliantly. They just tell the people what the bible says.  And the people, too lazy to read for themselves, just go along- trusting in the charismatic leader. People of good will who wish to know God instead find themselves in cults without even knowing it. It is painful to watch.

It is time to put doctrine to bed. It is time to grow up and graduate from high school. It is time to truly understand. It is time to take responsibility for your own salvation. It is time to honor God with the time it takes to study his divine will.

Christians simply can’t have a real conversation about anything serious because most Christians have not read the bible. They are literally and completely ignorant of the true Word of God. How can a real discussion take place in this environment? It can’t.   In fact, bad doctrine can’t even be addressed among Christians because they have no idea what the Word says on the matter!  The result is a room full of Christians spouting one doctrine over another!  The clever ones will use Google to ask which verses support which doctrine.  Nonsense is the result!  Every doctrine can be supported that way!  In fact, that is what cults do!  Only a full comprehension of the whole will ever due.  A small scratch at the surface of doctrine causes the person’s entire belief system to crumble. A mere whisper that threatens their shallow, unfounded belief causes panic. Only fear awaits there- love of knowledge and truth must flee.

This is unacceptable at this time in our communal walk with God. Christ is returning and the ultimate test is about to be given. The Powerful Delusion is coming- it is already upon us. The bible warns us that even the elect will be fooled. Yes, most of you will be fooled. Satan himself is coming. And he knows the bible like the back of his hand. He knows how to twist and tweak it. He is lovely and beautiful. He will do good works. How will you not be fooled? Doctrine will fail you- you will be undone. You must be armed with the actual Word of God.

Now. Pick up your bible and read. Our Lord is coming. You must be ready.

Has anyone else experienced the Bliss of God? I try to tell people about this and get some pretty odd looks. As I grow older and learn more, the more I delight in God. Some people believe that God made us so that we can worship him. I don’t believe that at all. God is not insecure. He knows who he is. No. God made us because he wants children. He wants a father-child relationship with us, whom he made to be ‘like’ him. He delights in us as a father delights in a beloved daughter or son. And we, in return, delight in him.

All knowledge points to God. In fact, I would go as far as to say that if a ‘scientist’ doesn’t find God very quickly in their quest for knowledge, they are extremely dumb and dishonest scientists. One only needs to scratch the surface of creation before the blinding perfection of it blows the human mind away. And this blowing away of our minds should delight us to no end. I know it does for me. periodicEven as a young student, I would gaze at the periodic chart and then picture all of creation- from earth to the furthest galaxies of the universe and I would think, “That’s incredible. ALL of creation is made up of only those few elements!? God just threw in a few ‘laws of nature’ and BAM! we get all this???” I mean, just think about a human creation: a car. How many parts does it have? I can tell you this: more than the number of elements on that periodic chart! And can all those car parts be used to make a flower? A furry little animal? A black hole? A colorful nebula? A song? A thought? Beauty? And can those car parts render into millions of different compositions to make an infinite number of new creations? Can those car parts result in worship? Can they result in passion? Love?Car-Parts

No. And why? Because man is not God. We are nothing to him. Our creations look like a two year old’s drawing next to his. And yet, man thinks he is smarter than God- or even more humorously, believes THEY can be God. ha!

What about the way math is echoed throughout nature? I just created a jewelry store named Fibonacci Style. That is because I have long been blown away at the oneness of all knowledge and being. The Fibonacci equation is called God’s Fingerprint because we find the mathematical equivalent of the Fibonacci equation throughout all creation- from the ovaries of an animal, to the way a fern frond unfurls to the spiraled arms of galaxies. Amazing!

We humans need to break down Creation into ‘subjects’ because we simply can’t take in the whole at one time. We call things, ‘science’, ‘art’, ‘music’, ‘math’, ‘history’, ‘archeology’, ‘astronomy’, ‘thermodynamics’… you get the point. But if you stand back, you will see that ALL of it is actually the same. Math is music. Physics is art. Chemistry is worship. The perfection of God’s design is evident throughout all nature. fib4

Just think of listening to one man playing a guitar. Think of the split second biofeedback loop that is going on as he adjusts and readjusts his fingers on the strings. He has to think about what he is doing at the moment and planning for the next moment. His fingers move, firing his neurons faster than we can even measure. His soul is also at work, mediating and coordinating all his chemical reactions, biological reactions, etc. to convey his private emotions through the music as well. It changes his tone and frequency ever so slightly so that the listener can intuit his message. And all this, in less than the tiniest millisecond. And let us not forget the instantaneous reactions happening to the physical reality around the man and us. The strings resonate at a particular frequency which then shoves air molecules at a particular frequency. fib1Those air molecules then shove the neighboring ones until the energy of the original ‘shove’ reaches the ear drum (caught cleverly by the nice cone shape of our ears!) and makes it vibrate at a certain frequency. Then, it pushes little bones behind the eardrum which are attached to nerves which fire off chemicals which trigger the next nerve until it reaches a part of the listener’s brain which then uses a million little chemical and biochemical reactions in such a way as to trigger the use of stored data which then triggers a ‘feeling’ in the listeners which then triggers other chemical reactions that ‘interpret’ the feeling into higher reasoning. Worship, passion, disdain, contentment, discontentment, love or hate- all can be the result of all these reactions. Now, let’s not EVEN get into what happens when that listener wants to DANCE!! haha.

It is all tied together to result in the higher things of life- a worship of the Creator, love for one another, beauty for beauty’s sake, variety for the sake of delight. If you don’t see God’s hand in all creation, you are not very bright. There is no such thing as an atheist. Just rather illogical babies who are having a temper tantrum at God.

fib3To learn anything in life, if you are an honest human being, must result in finding God and then worshiping him. Not a slave-like worship, either. It is just involuntary. I must worship God because all he does utterly delights me. I am made for him and he is made for me. We are connected by our mutual delights. How can I NOT love God is really the question. Human beings naturally love what God loves. We naturally abhor what God abhors. Every aspect of God pleases mankind. Worship is the natural reaction. I am tickled pink by God. So much so that there are times when I enter into a wonderful state that I call ‘the Bliss of God’. My heart begins to sing his praises, tears spring into my eyes, I love him so much that my mind goes blinding white in joy.fib7 I begin to think of all the things he can do and has done. My heart squeezes in my chest and I truly feel that I will burst from the inside, out. It gets unbearable. I can only remain in this BLISS for a short while. And I have to tell God I must leave or stand back a little or I will lose my mind or physically burst. I know he understands what I am saying. I know that when the old prophets saw God or saw Jesus in their visions, they didn’t fall to their faces as an act of subservience. They fell because their minds and bodies couldn’t contain this BLISS of God. I know we must receive new bodies for a good reason: these human bodies and our human mind literally can’t bear the beauty and awesomeness of God. Our happiness will literally kill us.

I so look forward to the day when I receive a stronger mind and body so that I can actually exist in this Bliss forever. I remember often the days I used to hate my life. I wanted to die- not to be with God but because my life was so miserable. There is no way I could have gotten from that place to this bliss on my own. We are indeed chosen by God. He chose us first. The only thing I did was depend on him. Trust in him. And try to walk in obedience to him. And what did he do? He flowered my mind- he caused it to slowly burst into this new state of knowledge and living. Because God chose me first, I stand in this perfect bliss today. That, my friends, is true love. God doesn’t seek our worship. We worship because we can’t help it. God is just.. cool. In every way. He seeks our love, not worship. He wants to be our father. He wants us to be his kids. He craves a relationship with us. Our adoration is natural. After all, he made us like him. We think like him. We can’t but admire all the things he is. I thank God for giving me this life. This opportunity to find bliss in him. I’ve seen the blinding whiteness of joy that is God. And it’s wonderful.galaxy2

purposeI can’t say this passionately enough: every moment of every day for the rest of our lives (I’m speaking to Christians here) has but one purpose: to tell others the Good News of Christ! Every breath, every movement, every effort should be geared toward His last command. Our mission field is not in a far away place full of poor people. Poverty is not the problem! A poor man, starving on a street that has found Jesus is far richer than the richest American who has cast Jesus aside! Missions are great- but don’t be fooled about what our purpose is! Feeding the poor and clothing the poor- that is the assumption for a Christian! If you aren’t doing that, you are less than hopeless! Your mission field is the unsaved people that are all around you everyday. Near or far, doesn’t matter. Rich or poor, doesn’t matter.

In fact, the rich are far more wretched than the poor because they can’t even see their wretchedness! At least the poor man is half way to God because he knows he needs saving! We need to be careful that we don’t mistake Christ’s Great Commission as the need to ‘help the poor. ‘ If we think that way, we are missing the point. Helping the poor is simply a given for a Christian. But it is not the mission.

This life on earth is the teeniest of pinpoints on our timeline that stretches far past the horizon of human imagination- whether you live a few hours or whether you live to be over one hundred- it is but a blip. How can that compare in any way to trillions and trillions and trillions of years of life? If you are poor but know God, will you even remember your poverty after trillions of years of laughter, joy and fulfillment? I doubt it. Don’t feel sorry for the man in rags that knows Christ as his savior. Feel sorry for the rich man who thought all meaning could be found on this earth, but after he got all he could, his soul is even more dead than when he started! Feel sorry for him as he overdoses on drugs before he could get right with God!

I struggle sometimes when I hear of people who have gone on short term mission trips. Many times it seems as if their conclusion is that we must do more for the poor. Or even worse, that they believe they did something good for someone! And worst of all is if they feel a sense of self righteousness. Short term mission trips are for us, not those in need. They feed us. They teach us. Five days in a far away land can not help anyone. Not really. It really only helps you with your perspective on life.   If you wish to be a real missionary, then sell your house and go to where people have never heard of Christ and dedicate your life to them. And if you can’t be the missionary, then obviously, you find missionaries who have gone and you devote a nice chunk of change to send faithfully to them. This is so that they can bring the kindness of Jesus’ hand to them in the form of food and shelter. Because without the very basics, how can they then have concern for their immortal souls? We try to help the missionaries with their daily living costs as well so that they can spend their entire time with this remote and unreached people. Otherwise, why did they go?

However, don’t believe for a minute that you are off the hook!  After handing over real cash, dough, dollars to those missionaries to do their job, it is time to hitch up your pants and look around. The harvest is rich and full and waiting for eager hands to pick. The harvest is about to rot in the field for lack of workers! Our mission field is right here- all around us at work, on social media, at play and in our neighbor’s lives.  They ‘cost’ almost nothing to help. Just your time, love, courage and spoken words from the Living Word. This is your mission field. And it is just as important as those we sent to the remote areas of the world!

A poor person who knows Christ is RICH. A rich man without Christ is the most wretched sight on earth.   Make sure you keep in mind what your true mission is on earth- telling the good news.  Wealth or lack thereof is irrelevant to the mission.

You all have FB. Talk about a mission field! The very minimum all of you can do as missionaries in your home turf is to regularly post either my church’s live Sunday service or another one you know.

Listen, once you have the right perspective (ie, your ONLY purpose, past finding your own salvation, is to tell the Good News to others), nothing else really matters. You don’t care if your job, spouse, children or entire life isn’t ‘fulfilling’ anymore. Know why? Because you finally get it that nothing, and I mean, nothing,  can fulfill you but Christ! Because you were specifically designed and intended to help your fellow man find true LIFE through Christ, you are automatically fulfilled by doing this job! Ha! Who knew?

Ah. The irony of God. Wisdom begins the day a man recognizes his utter wretchedness. Then, he seeks help. Then, he finds Jesus. Then he obeys out of duty. The obedience leads to an abundance of the Holy Spirit and wisdom buds. Faithfulness and perseverance in this walk ultimately lead to complete joy and wisdom. To retain this earthly life is to lose it. To lose this earthly life for the sake of Christ is to gain LIFE.  Oh, and purpose too.  Just like Jesus told us so clearly. Too bad we are all so hard headed that we need to start with wretchedness. We could have just listened to Jesus and spared ourselves of all that! Ha! We need to tell this lesson to all who will listen. That, my friend, is what LIFE is all about.


God’s WORD is all we need.  It is.  If someone says, ‘the bible doesn’t address today’s problems,’ I would say that they have never read it.  How can you even begin to describe the bible?  The bible is LIFE itself.  The bible contains too much information- too much for us to even embrace.  Is there any end to it?  Can anyone even complete the process of understanding it in one lifetime?  NO!  It is a wonder that must leave you breathless!

There is no time you can read the bible and not feel LIFE breathed into your soul.  Every story, every word, every pen-stroke- it all oozes life directly into your soul.  How does it do that?  Because it is made for the human being.  It is made just for us.  So we can’t help but be enthralled by it.

Tonight, I understand why people bury their heads in the sand.  I almost wished I hadn’t spent my life begging God for wisdom and knowledge.  To see evil, really see it, is to assault every belief in happiness.  It is one thing to see things on the news.  It is another to think about what it really means.  I think people become liberals out of fear.  They NEED to believe that there is an earthly solution.  Even for Christians.  Because enduring the horrible evil of this life is just too hard sometimes.  Holding up your own responsibilities is just too heavy sometimes.  Times like this, I just want someone, anyone, to take it all away from me.  I want to run away and hide in a little hole where nothing can touch me anymore.

God has made it easy.  Just walk through, Dummy.

God has made it easy. Just walk through, Dummy!

Jesus is so beautiful.  Do you understand that God sent Jesus BECAUSE he knows we are hopeless?  He knows that we can’t do good- no matter how hard we try.  We drink too much, take too many drugs, have too much illicit sex, fail to glorify God when we should, have too much pride, kill people, hurt people, steal, lie, cheat, have affairs, don’t take care of our kids, are terrible parents, are selfish as can be- he KNOWS all this.  He knows we are hopeless!  And guess what?  HE DOESN’T CARE!  His love is bigger than his disapproval.  “For God so LOVED the world, he sent his only begotten Son..”  Do you not understand this?  You have heard those words too many times but fail to understand the grace of God inside of them.

He sent Christ because without him, we can NOT live with God.  Inasmuch as you could not allow a stinking, thieving murderer to live side by side with your children in your home, God can’t allow you, in your current state of sin to live with him.  You must be ‘reformed’, so to speak.  We ARE talking about eternity, right?  No one could stand a stinking, murderous house guest for an eternity!    Neither can God abide that kind of relationship with you forever.  Something has to be done to make you (and me) suitable for an eternity with the Most High God.   That ‘something’ is the grace and gift of Jesus’ forgiveness.  And some day, the removal of all temptation to sin again.  Before Christ came to this earth, your DEEDS were the only way to find righteousness with God.  You had to follow every law that God set forth to constantly cleanse yourself of your last sin.  That, and you had to have tremendous FAITH in him.  People had to run back and forth to the Temple all day long- every day of their life!  Suffice it to say that it was extremely hard to be found righteous in God’s eyes before Christ came.

I’m a Needy Wife..

Written by one of my favorite young missionaries, Charissa Steyn.  Beautifully written- the very heart of feminism.  I love it.  As a crusty broad myself, I know she speaks to my heart on the inside.  It is GOOD to love your man.  And *gasp*, even need him.  *gulp*

Note from author:  A massive argument broke out on my Facebook page because I proposed a paper that would contest the Trinity Doctrine.  That it would show that it isn’t scriptural to say that ‘Jesus is literally God’, that he is a separate entity from God and is, in fact, the divine Son of God.  That we will see BOTH God and Jesus when we went to heaven (do Trinitarians expect only to see a three headed God and not God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit?).  And of course, we will see and/or understand the true nature of the Holy Spirit.   That Jesus would be seated on the right hand of the Father and we, at the right hand of Jesus.  That Jesus was raised up by God to be equal to him- but that this notion that Jesus IS God is wrong as far as scripture is concerned.  GOD is God.  He made Christ equal, but he is before Christ.  He is higher than Christ and commands Christ just as Christ is higher than us and commands us.  I promised a full scriptural account of these truths.  This caused an ugly, hateful uproar where people acted in terrible fear and anger- many instantly unfriended me- and even my own pastor came online to say, in public, that I was basically unsaved if I didn’t agree that Christ WAS literally, God.    This is what I wrote in response to that most surprising  response from people who claim to be ‘loving’ Christians: Read the rest of this entry »

I distinctly remember when the United States would openly berate China on its ‘One Child’ policy because it led to men and women literally throwing their females newborns into the garbage to die. They still do this. Because if they don’t, the Chinese government will put them in jail. In fact, we have had recent reports of the Chinese and North Korean governments arresting women who had the temerity to get pregnant after already having a successful baby and forcing an abortion upon them. But there is now a difference on how we, Americans, deal with such information. Now, we remain silent. And the reason why we remain so silent is because we are even worse.  At least the Chinese government and N. Korean government are not profiting from these deaths. But our citizens are. Here we see a young, white, elitist, well educated woman making mountains of money on the excruciating deaths of thousands of babies. And it’s all perfectly legal. Read the rest of this entry »


This video can NOT be ignored.  (* see Note 1 below). Everyone of us is beholden, individually, to God.   We will all answer for what we did or did not do in the service of God.  That includes how we participate (or fail to participate) in the Body of Christ as represented by our individual churches.   I go to a church that uses modern techniques to grow the church.  We do have a rocking church worship team.  We are casual.  But I believe in the HEART of my pastors.  They use the scripture as the basis of their message.  We are in the middle of a series called ‘Supernatural’ where we are looking at the life of Elijah.  We are looking at his complete and utter faith in God as a model for our lives.  My pastors encourage reading the bible all the time.  I trust in this.

I can’t say, however, that I have never been concerned about what we do and what we preach.  But that would be so for any church.  The question we must all ask ourselves is whether our church promotes God or promotes the individual.  Whether  it promotes faith in God’s power or faith in man’s power to increase the church.  Using good business strategy Read the rest of this entry »

A friend sent me a link to Anne Barnhardt’s video series concerning the sexual perversions of Islam.  I had doubts and decided to research it myself.  Not only is she correct about everything she said, she was also correct about how easy it is to find on the internet.  To all but Americans, Islamic sex practices are out in the open.  And Muslims are PROUD of it.  Woman hatred is so profound in Islam that even sex with women (filthy, sinful creatures that we are) is to be frowned upon.   Men are completely cut off from us filthy ones and only allowed to be in each other’s company.   Therefore, homosexuality is rampant.   While some Muslim countries ‘officially’ frown on it, culturally it is accepted and promoted- by the very police that should be cracking down on it.  Powerful generals in their military even keep their ‘boys’ around as status symbols.  With homosexuality comes rampant pedophilia (Bacha Bazi) as well- all our soldiers overseas will attest to this fact.  And worst of all, along with the hatred of women comes female genital mutilation.  Again, I had trouble believing Barnhardt until I looked it up myself.  What horror.  THIS is the Religion of Peace?  Yes.  THIS is the religion of Peace.  Yet the American feminists LOVES Islam.

When I went to the World Heath Organization online, they tell us that ‘religious communities’ in Africa, the Middle East and Read the rest of this entry »

Lukewarm-Christian1I’ve always felt that one of the most revealing things about a person is the company they keep. This was confirmed over this latest troll invasion on my Short Little Rebel page on Facebook. Liberal Lukewarmers stood side by side with the most satanic forces on earth and flooded this page with incredible amounts of hate. They, themselves, didn’t blaspheme God and Christ. But all the friends they came with did. What does this say about these Lukewarmers? They weren’t bothered Read the rest of this entry »

bibleIf you don’t read your bible, you have no idea what you are missing. I have been a ‘technical’ Christian since I can really remember having logical thought. By this, I mean that I’ve always known who Jesus was and I always accepted him as my Lord and Savior. This is due to my mother who made us all go to bible school every Sunday. But I never read the bible. I knew the stories from church- but not the actual scripture. I thought I knew all that needed to be known. But one Read the rest of this entry »


A parent escorts his child from Agnes Risley Elementary School after a shooting Monday, October 21, at nearby Sparks Middle School in Sparks, Nevada. A student opened fire at the middle school, police said, killing a teacher and wounding two students.

I think about all the instruction I give my children in the mornings over breakfast. All the kisses on their sleepy heads and the ‘I love you’s’ before they have even opened their eyes fully in the morning. I think about calling out to them as they leave for school- I tell them to ‘listen to your teachers! No pulling cards today (a form of discipline)! Stay together!” I think about the cheerful time when they get home and all come to my desk with kisses and hello’s, fresh wind in their Read the rest of this entry »

blood moonUn. Be. LIEVable! Four ‘blood’ moons, separated by a full eclipse of the sun, will be taking place over the next two years!  (see video link below!) This has happened only 3 times in 500 years- all coinciding with major events in the world: discovery of America /Jews kicked out of Spain, Israel declared a state and the Six Day War between Israel & all the Arab nations. Over the next two years, they will occur exactly on the Passover and Feast of the Tabernacles- two years in a row!! This is no coincidence as it has been predicted as the sign that Christ’s return is very near. Considering that the forced implementation of the RFID chip is predicted by secular analysts like NBC News to become mandatory by 2017- five years from now, the timing makes perfect sense. Also, with Obama and his presidential war chest loaded to bursting, I will estimate that this is when the UN votes to create a World Government with Obama as the President of the World.  The reason that it will happen is because Obama’s insistence on war with Syria leaves no choice but to draw Iran, Israel, the EU, China and Russia into a world wide conflict- and the solution will be posed as a Word Government with a huge army to force nations to ‘behave’.  Israel will be attacked by the UN and Read the rest of this entry »

Please take the time to watch Dr. Carson’s recent full speech to the Values Voters Summit. I see a great man here. But I know the GOP will attempt to squash him completely. I also notice that this speech received little to no media exposure. All the forces of hell are arrayed against this Godly man. America, World, please know that America no longer has two parties. We have only one- the Progressive Party. Both ‘parties’ now act in unison- under a cloak of deceit to reassure the People that we still have a champion for Good and God in the GOP. But this is not so. Everything our Congress and President do is no more than a scripted show for the ‘useful idiots’ of our nation & world. Dr. Carson truly strikes me as a genuinely Godly and sensible man. But he will need the blessing and power of God to win. Please pray for Dr. Carson and for all the politicians who truly care about doing God’s will. Pray that they do not lose heart or courage. The bible is clear that the Beast will subjugate the ‘saints’ completely- but it is also clear that it will be only for a very limited time and that the ‘saints’ (that’s you and me) will WIN in the end by the hand of God. So we still need good, Godly leaders to stick with it. Even when it looks like they have lost, they must not stop. I believe Dr. Carson will be such a leader. Pray for him. Pray for God’s will to be done. And pray for the end of evil in this world.
