Unframing the wrong choice, rebuttal to Milo

Sodomite "conservative" Milo Yiannopoulos pulls a neurolinguistic fast one with his comment, “America has got to decide, very simply, if it wants female emancipation, gay rights, and tolerance for other skin colours, religious persuasions, and other points of view — or if it wants Islam,” said Yiannopoulos. “The choice is really that simple.”

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong, Milo. Those choices are false choices. Nice try, buddy. Maybe that kind of skewed logic will work on the heathen. I call your bluff.
The real choice? Obedience or rebellion to God. That's it. Door #1 or Door #2.

Female emancipation, you say? Got it. "He / she who the Son sets free is free indeed."

Gay rights? All mankind is born with unalienable rights; what you're talking about is privilege and licentiousness, not rights and liberty. Careful what you wish for, honey bunny. What gummint grants, gummint can take back. The tiger promises you the world to get you to open his cage, then smack! crunch! You're a Milo Meal. I would have thought a "conservative" would understand statist gummint, but I guess not.

Tolerance for races? MLK kind of set the country on the right foot with that one. Go ahead and try to find those "Colored" and "White" drinking fountains in Decatur, Alabama, that I saw as a kid. They're gone. Yaay.

Religious tolerances? "This I have against you: you tolerate that woman Jezebel." To tolerate someone's status in falsehood is to hate them. If you love them, you share the Way, the Truth, and the Life with them.

Islam? Who says America has to choose Islam? You? Did you consult with yourself before writing that silly little mandate? Or did you and Georgie Soros have a little sodomite soiree to see how you could frame the question and make people think they are up against a wall?

Here's the take-home message: "Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me." How dare you, you arrogant Philistine, tell us that we have only wicked choices?

And you're wrong on one other point. You say that Islam is the "single greatest threat to western civilization". America is in deep kimchi because America has been bowing before the strange god of fire since WWII, raining down nuclear filth and depleted uranium on innocent people in sovereign nations, ostensibly to keep peace, but in reality to "Kick their ass, Take their gas" (and other national treasures, as well as get some of Nimrod's DNA buried there in Iraq, but that's another story).

Worse, if it can be any worse, America has been warring against Creation itself. The half life of that nuclear abomination is 4.5 billion years. Divine intervention notwithstanding, the Middle East, ironically where civilization began, is toast.

And guess what? Islam has been around a very long time, at least since 1776. They've never been a problem for America. Why now? Because some people don't like it when foreigners screw up their DNA -- forever -- and their babies are born as monsters. Nor do they like "democracy" shoved down their throats by some Zionist pedophiles masquerading as politicians. They're pissed. I would be, too.

Here's the choice: America needs to repent, respect the sovereignty of other nations, stop killing our own unborn, stop coddling wicked men like you and calling your violence against your friends' bowels an "alternative lifestyle", jail the banksters, and shoot war criminals who lie to create perpetual global misery and scientists caught in lies that hurt children.

Don't like those choices? Then we perish. God will give the victory to those radical Muslims and their Sharia law, and perhaps then His Law won't seem so bad after all.

The CERN Burn

Commentary: "The lion and lamb shall lie down together." Isaiah 11:6

It is being said that CERN has changed all the Bibles, even those in your house that you've had for many years, as well as all the references online, to read "The wolf and the lamb shall lie down together..." Gasp. What a powerful thing CERN must be to have the ability to change written words on books in people's homes and every computer server in the world.

Here's the truth: CERN has done no such thing. The Bible never said "lion and lamb". It was always "wolf." 

Maybe CERN took out the passage, "God helps those who help themselves" as well. Guess what? Benjamin Franklin said that; it was never in Scripture.

Wolf. Lamb. Meh. Not sure how / where this got started, but it ends here. Stop spending time being played like a fool, spreading fear that the all-powerful CERN is creeping into your home in the black of night, worming its way into your bookshelf. Chances are, worse things have already found you, if you embrace modern theology.

Why not research how Darby, Moody, and Scofield colluded with Jesuits to foist Dispensationalism and Zionism upon the world by changing presuppositions. Or how the heresies of Unitarianism gave us institutions such as insane asylums, penitentiaries, poorhouses, and public schools based on the lie that society, not the individual heart, was at the core of man's sorrows. Or how Diaprax, the spiritual subversion that is the very core of political correctness, has brainwashed the world into believing that your truth is your truth and my truth is my truth, because after all, relationships and Rodney Kingism and his "people can't we all just get along" override eternal absolutes.

Dispensationalism, Zionism, Unitarianism, and Diaprax. The fools behind CERN only wish they had such powers over the mind.

SCOTUS 2015: HIS LIES SHALL NOT BE SO

Two days ago, the Supreme Court of the United States self-destructed. With their blasphemous majority decision to nullify state bans on sodomite marriage, they have declared war on God, on America, and on every Christian. These are dark days full of lies and liars, but I am hopeful. God's Word is true, victorious, and eternal. The lies of the wicked are not so. 

The Hebrew word for the adjective proud, derived from the noun pride, is /ge/, pronounced /gay/.
Isaiah 16:6 We have heard of the pride of Moab; he is very proud: even of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so.
Pride is inordinate self-esteem, unreasonable conceit, insolence, rude treatment of others. Haughtiness adds disdain, contempt, and arrogance to the pile. All these vices makes one full of wrath, or violent anger and vehement exasperation.

Sodomy (there is no such word as "homosexuality" in Scripture) is rebellion against the natural function of creation that comes from a spirit controlled by pride. These rebels cannot bear the fact that God judges their sin, so they must lie to themselves and to others, hoping that they will agree with their lies and nullify God's Law by majority rule. Spirit knows spirit, so those with a lying spirit already in their hearts agree to believe their lie (perhaps that is why politicians are so easy to win over).

We read in 2Thes. 2:10-12 what happens to those who reject the truth:
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

God said it, not me. Those who rejoice at the legalization of sodomite marriage are damned.

I believe that God has shown us how to pray. When we agree with some prayer or statement, we say "Amein" (not Amen, the sun-god deity --busting another lie here), meaning SO BE IT.
Here is the anti-Amein, "...his lies shall not be so." Every time we see the rainbow symbolism that has been STOLEN from the covenant people, let us say, "HIS LIES WILL NOT BE SO."

In the Old Covenant, sodomites were put to death. We are not in that time, but now we are empowered by the New Covenant, and Christ dwells in us. We have a weapon far more powerful to accomplish justice: The Sword of the Spirit. Our prayers avail much. The father of lies would like us to think that they don't, that we are hopeless because the SCOTUS is the all-powerful court of the land with the last word. NOT! There is only one Sovereign, and government's duty is to serve Him by protecting His people. When that duty is abrogated, the right for that entity to exist is also nullified (Declaration of Independence, law of the land that is still in force).

Ruth Bader Ginsburg (performs ge marriages): his lies will not be so.

Stephen G. Breyer (liberal): his lies will not be so.

Sonia Sotomayor (deeply closeted lesbian/cougar): his lies will not be so.

Elena Kagan (allegedly not ge, but her lesbian partner is): his lies will not be so.

Anthony M. Kennedy (London School of Economics/Fabian socialist, Calif liberal): his lies will not be so.

The Crux of the Vaccine Battle: Understanding the Republican Form of Government

Californians lost a vaccine battle yesterday. I did not watch the proceedings, but I wonder if "our" side fought properly. While my heart breaks with every testimony of a vaccine-injured child, that is not how we win in court.

The fundamental error here is the presumption on our part that lawmakers should listen to the loud voices of so many injured people -- majority rule. Govt has ONE job: protect the rights of the INDIVIDUAL. We have bought into the COLLECTIVE, the "democracy" of the system. The proper action is SEPARATION OF GOVT AND MEDICINE. Govt needs to protect our unalienable rights to make medical decisions individually. The CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION guarantees this independence. "Inalienable" [sic, should be "unalienable"] means that rights come from God and are not granted by civil govt:

CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION
ARTICLE 1 DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
SECTION 1. All people are by nature free and independent and have
inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and
liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing
and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.
At the end of ARTICLE I, Sec. 31, we read this:
(h) This section shall be self-executing. If any part or parts of
this section are found to be in conflict with federal law or the
United States Constitution, the section shall be implemented to the
maximum extent that federal law and the United States Constitution
permit. Any provision held invalid shall be severable from the
remaining portions of this section.

State govt is predicated upon the organic law of the United States of America, which is four documents: The four Organic Laws listed in the order of their occurrence, are The Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Confederation, the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 and the 1787 Constitution of the United States.

The foundation of this form of law is the "republican form of govt" -- now hold on -- this is NOT the GOP or the Republican Party." The RFOG is guaranteed by the USCON, Art. IV, Sec. 4. Ever read it? Ever wonder what it meant? This RFOG is defined in the Declaration of Independence:

"ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS"

That's it in a nutshell.
Rights come from God.
Rights are certain.
Rights are unalienable.

We read further that govt has ONE JOB:

"THAT TO SECURE THESE RIGHTS, GOVERNMENTS ARE INSTITUTED AMONG MEN."

A republican form of govt is NOT a democracy, nor is it a republic in the way China is a republic. Black's Law Dictionary shows us that our republic is different, in that the INDIVIDUAL holds the power, not the collective. Even if a majority of people vote away their rights, you still have your rights individually, because they are UNALIENABLE.

One more thing: Where does govt get its authority to govern you?

"DERIVING THEIR JUST POWERS FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED."

The four most important words we need to know these days is "I DO NOT CONSENT."

Our job is to remind our civil servants WHOM they serve. You do not beg a servant to do his job. You demand it. You require it of him, or you fire him. You remind him of the conditions of his employment (see above) and if he violates those conditions, you are lawfully required to replace him:

"THAT WHENEVER ANY FORM OF GOVT BECOMES DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS, IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR ABOLISH IT."

We cannot just share stories of injuries. We must use the LAW. We must tell these senators and reps these legal mandates. Then, if they violate them, they are not only accountable to us, the individual, they are accountable to Him from Whom our rights come.

THIS is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Are you ashamed to speak it in a court, before a legislature? Afraid to bring "religion" into the temple (capitol)? Then your children will be forcibly vaccinated because your faith was weak and you were in agreement with the wicked. Your elected servants are in covenant with you and with God. How do you win?

"BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY".

If they break this covenant, you can un-elect them, but they face a severe and sure judgment: they will be 'rebuked, terrified, broken, dashed.' Psalm 2

A Diagnosis of Illiteracy


In functional medicine, one gets to the ROOT of the disease rather than deals with symptoms. Illiteracy is epidemic. What is the CAUSE?


Surely it is not the individual psychopathology. As Dr. Hilde Mosse (M.D.) states, "An epidemic is caused by external forces, not by defects in the individual." [Let us consider that this would be equally apropos applied to the vaccine-induced brain injury epidemic, aka 'autism.']


The root cause of illiteracy:

First, the presuppositional world view that MAN IS AN ANIMAL.

Second, the belief that the State is responsible for education.

These two lies have forged the chains on our minds and made America a bloody, stupid hell.



This thought that MAN IS AN ANIMAL is the foundational tenet of the bastard science of psychology, and psychology was the foundation of progressive education. Bastard science? Yes, because it is illegitimate, and not science at all. Science is evidence. One cannot prove that the soul does not exist, yet these profligates declared, "The soul can no longer exist in the face of our present-day physiological knowledge." (Wundt, 1911)



Psychology is more than illegitimate. It is theological heresy because its prime focus is to nullify Scriptural truth that man is created with a soul; the word "soul" in Greek is /psuche/, from which we get the word psychology. Funny, isn't it ~~ psychology says it studies the soul, but its very work is to persuade believers that there is no soul.



Fido and Kitty don't have a soul; neither does Johnny. Fido and Kitty don't read; neither should Johnny. Fido and Kitty need to be trained to obey their master (good luck with Kitty), and Johnny needs to be trained to obey. Whom he obeys is the crux of the matter, isn't it?


The Classroom Becomes a Psychology Lab


Wilhelm Wundt opened a laboratory for Experimental Psychology in Leipzig, Germany, in 1879. It is fairly safe to say that without Wundt there would have been no Hitler, as his theories paved the way for the Fuehrer. Ideas have consequences, you know.



G. Stanley Hall, an American, was his star pupil. Hall said that children should be allowed to live through their simian (monkey) stage of evolution and express their "animal spirits" until around age eight. Let the child be cruel and rude, for he is not ready to be moralized. Every mother who has reared children knows the idiocy of this idea; any child left to his own "animal spirits" would not live to be eight years old. Yet, Hall became the darling of American psychologists and extended his influence to education, bringing Wundt's ideas to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore.



One of Hall's most famous students was John Dewey, who, like his mentor, set up a laboratory school at the University of Chicago. Now, what do you think happened in this experimental lab?



Dewey's goal was to discover a curriculum that would produce a different kind of American, one who eschewed independent thinking, one who hated capitalism, one who embraced the idea that the individual existed for the benefit of the collective -- or in other words, the state. This new American would not be American at all, but a socialist who embraced the ideas of another German that these psychologists adored, Karl Marx.



Dewey believed that learning to read in early years was a "perversion" that must be dealt with. His solution was to use a method of reading that was employed with deaf children who could not make a sound-symbol relationship. Words had to be memorized as whole words, instead of being decoded as individual letters. This was mentally crippling to the non-deaf child. And that was as it was intended to be.



The other tool Dewey found useful was the WORKBOOK. Endless, useless, meaningless worksheets that kept children busy and unengaged in the true work of education, studying the great minds that had gone before, learning to discern between the good and bad, and to choose the good. The workbook was in opposition to the Notebook, which was traditional pedagogy before the progressives sabotaged education.


Revealing the New Mas’sah



In the early 1800s, Massachusetts educator Horace Mann visited the German kingdom of Prussia and brought back some ideas on education, which flew in the face of American education. The Prussian model was Compulsory and Free. Let us read "free" through the eyes of truth: TAXES. A transfer of authority was necessary, because education of children had been a ministry of the CHURCH prior to Mann and the Unitarian-Universalist, heretic theology that he adhered to. In this new model, the teaching of children was henceforth to be the business of the STATE.


The Unitarians had one major problem to deal with before their ideology could be realized universally. The South was strongly Calvinist, believing that man’s chief end was “to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” This rift in theology was actually the true cause of the Civil War, as the unseen always prefigures the seen. We know the end of the story: the entire nation got a centralized government that could force children in ALL states to attend the tax-supported and government-controlled public schools.  



A New Mas’sah.

A New Plantation.

And New Niggers.


“A nigger should know nothing but to obey his master – to do as he is told to do. Learning would spoil the best niggers in the world. Now, if you teach that nigger how to read, there would be no keeping him. It would forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master.” (Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass)


The New Niggers are not kept in line with whips and beatings. The psychologists thought of everything. They knew that, like Douglass, some of the slaves would not be content in their station. They would be restless and stir with that “independent wish” that Scotland’s bard spoke of. Enter: mood stabilizers, legal drugs, to help the animals love their chains. In a double twist of cruelty, have the behavioral psychologists recommend Ritalin or Paxil or Luvox for the students who are mentally crippled, frustrated, and kept ignorant by the curriculum that they themselves invented. Of course, the drugs have side effects like suicidal ideations or tendencies to violence. When they kill themselves or their classmates, see? we told you they were animals.  

Restoration of literacy and setting the captives free requires a New Civil War. As in 1861, the enemy looks like us. He is our compatriot. He is the hopeful young teacher who has paid a king’s ransom to attend a New Plantation-funded college and be indoctrinated as a faithful overseer for New Mas’sah. He’s as much a slave as the slaves he perpetuates the system upon. He needs to be set free, too.

Unlike 1861, this war is not fought with bullets. The heart is the battleground. Do you believe that man is an animal? That the State can be trusted with authority that does not belong to it? Then kiss your chains, I cannot help you.

If, however, you see a child as the evidence of God’s presence on earth; if you believe that he has the right to know his Creator and understand his duty to Him and his fellow man; that it is our responsibility to equip him with literacy that he may be free of the tyranny of man; then I welcome you to join me as we set our hand to restoring the independent mind.  


"If I'm design'd yon lordling's slave, 
By Nature's law design'd, 
Why was an independent wish 
E'er planted in my mind? 
If not, why am I subject to 
His cruelty, or scorn? 
Or why has man the will and pow'r 
To make his fellow mourn?”

(Robert Burns, “Man Was Made to Mourn”)

Time to Pray

There was a time when I would have been angry at the fellow who caused my Granny Good-Food facebook profile to be closed. But I do realize the Hand of God in this. What man meant for evil, God meant for good. There's a time for everything, and I have been faithful for nearly two decades to preach the Gastronomic Gospel, being a missionary to the undernourished and overfed, rescuing those led away to death by Food Fraud and Venomous Vittles. If I haven't displaced your trust in the FDA, Monsanto, and Coca-Cola by now, it won't happen.

Now, I feel a different call on my life's work while on this earth. 

It is time to pray. Of course, it's always been time to pray, but it's time to contribute  some powerful incense to those golden bowls (Rev. 5:8). 

Daniel of old saw that Judah's time of desolation, 70 years, was coming to an end. Did he sit and wait for it to happen? No, he 'gave [his] attention to the Lord God to seek Him..." (Dan. 9:3)

America's captivity by Babylon is also coming to an end. We should be rejoicing and praising God for His mercy on this nation. As Daniel outlined the sins of his people, we could catalog America's sins in that same list in Ch. 9.  Is God judging America? Sure enough. Is that a bad thing? Only if you are counted among the wicked who merits that judgment. For the oppressed, a righteous judge is a Hero. How many of us have cried out to end the tyranny of Monsanto, Merck, IRS, CIA, FDA, TSA, DHS, and so many other thousands of their minions? Well...our Hero is not deaf, nor is He too weak to rescue us. He is going to be right on time. This is not "rapture" theology I speak of. Like Haman the Amalekite who tried to destroy our forebears, we are about to see the bastards swing on the same rope they were going to use on God's people!  Stop right here and read this before going further ~~ http://www.gods-kingdom-ministries.net/daily-weblogs/2012/05-2012/preparing-for-babylons-fall/

There are so many dreadful things to be fearful of if you look at the world without faith. But if you know your God and what He delights in (Jer. 9:23-24), you will know that His "lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness on earth" are boundless. Note those two words, "on earth". These qualities are not needed in Heaven, where there is perfection. Mercy, justice, and righteousness are needed where there is evil.

There is a video going around of a Gramma saying that it's time for a Second American Revolution. She is partly right. But it's not a time for taking up arms against the jackboots of Babylon. That would be suicide and falling into a trap of the arm of the flesh. This Granny says that we are called to a different kind of warfare. "Revolution" means revolving back to a beginning. Truly, we have spun off course and need to get back to the mindset of those who founded this nation: "The Lord is our judge; The Lord is our lawgiver, The Lord is our king -- He will save us." (Isaiah 33:22) This was America's beginning. It is the only "revolution" that will save us.

My son had a friend at work, Oz, whose mother in Georgia I spoke with some months back. We were discussing chemtrails, among other things. When I expressed some fear, she reminded me, "Those are not for us." Something clicked in my spirit ~~ you're right ~~ just like the rope of the gallows was not for us, but for Haman. Such it is with the recent fears of pestilence. That is not for us. My household has the Blood of the Lamb over it. If you are still in "Egypt", though, then the diseases of Egypt are yours. "If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer." (Exodus 15:26)

I will be "preparing for Babylon's fall," as Dr. Jones says. But I am not a "prepper." I can barely keep the pantry full of the week's needs, let alone for years as the doomsayers warn us. My humble double-wide is hardly a fortress bunker. I don't think I'd be able to shoot hungry neighbors (I say this with a full belly, though), and if that time comes may God give me grace to be as the widow of Zarapheth who had faith to share what she thought was her last meal. So you see, I may not be a "survivor" in the sense that the world defines it. However, I am much more than that. I am an Overcomer. Are we told to be a survivor? No. Are we told to be an Overcomer? Yes. Emphatically yes. I am in Christ, and He has won the victory; ergo, the victory is mine.

Let us not look to the dying throes of a defeated beast, but let us rejoice that we do have the victory and therefore, the blessings. Dr. Jones explains the significance of this year, 2014:

"...Earlier, from 1993-2013 we engaged in spiritual warfare to be set free from Mystery Babylon and to secure the dominion mandate from the beast systems of this world. But now we are entering a new time of Jacob’s trouble, during which time the overcomers will secure the Birthright of Joseph..."  

What is that birthright you speak of, Dr. Jones?

"...This refers to mining, agriculture, fishing, and all the things that God created for our benefit. These have been misused by the beast empires of the past, but when these are transferred to the true stewards, the saints of the Most High, the wealth of the earth will be used to establish the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven...That, I believe, will be a prime focus in the 21 years that lie ahead. The 121st Jubilee, I believe, will then be declared in 2035, completing the second work of Christ..."

Don't know about you, but I have a lot to look forward to in these next 21 years. In 2035, I will be a ripe 80 years young. I pray fervently to Overcome the fear, doubt, panic, and anger that are now being thrust upon us with every newscast, trying to get us to doubt the victory and go running back to "Egypt" and their "horses", aka, vaccines, drugs, and sorcery. None for me, thank you.

My trust is in the Great Physician and His delicious prescriptions of creamy raw milk, free-range eggs with orange yolks, and the fatted grass-fed calf. The human heart draws upon saturated fat in times of stress; perhaps this is why our Lord said that there will come a time when men's hearts will fail them for fear. Was He speaking of the low-fat diet that deprives the adrenal glands of cholesterol that is a critical component of pregnenolone, the master substance that is the precursor of our cortico-steroidal hormones? I've said for years that the low-fat diet is from hell. Maybe I was more correct than I realized. And that word, "heart." Did you know that the word is often translated as "kidneys" or "reins"? And where is the kidney, my friend? Right there as part of the adrenal gland -- ad (to) + renal (kidney). So??? Is it possible -- 'men's adrenal glands will fail them for fear'?

We used to visit Calvary Chapel in our younger days and listen to the inimitable Pastor Chuck Smith. He always ended his sermons with Numbers 6:24-26, "The LORD bless thee and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace." Okay, that's good. But how about this ~~ as it is translated using the Hebrew words ~~

"Yahweh (he who exists) will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a hedge of protection, Yahweh (he who exists) will illuminate the wholeness of his being toward you bringing order and he will provide you with love, sustenance and friendship, Yahweh (he who exists) will lift up his wholeness of being and look upon you and he will set in place all you need to be whole and complete."

Read that a few times and see if you aren't smiling and saying Hallelujah! And a smile, you know, boosts your immune system and makes you invincible to disease.

"...all you need to be whole and complete." That word, whole --
Mr. Webster (1828) tells us that "whole" is the root of the word, "heal." We also read that the word has a sense "to hold, to shut, enclose, conceal, to embrace the whole." How can we worry when "He who exists" is concealing us from raging of the enemy of our soul?

"... He who exists will provide you with love..." 
For the first 16 years of my life, I was unloved. Born out of wedlock to a woman who took her bitterness out on her bastard child, I went to bed almost nightly hearing her tell my father how she planned to "blow their brains out" or "drive them into the river." When she died at 39 years old, my first emotion was relief and a sense of safety. But the fear came back at age 29 and I had panic attacks when I tried to go to sleep. No doubt, the demons that had taken up residence in my defenseless soul were trying to gain control. As I lay there one night in mental anguish, I "saw" the words in the air in front of my eyes, "There is no power on earth greater than the Love of God." Just like that, I knew -- KNEW -- that I was loved. I threw the covers back, went to the living room and found the Bible, blew the dust off of it, and I've never left. God had plans for me, notwithstanding the circumstances of my birth.

That's my story, but I'm sure you have one, too. Whatever the "circumstances" in your life, or the "facts that affect the situation" of current events, God's love is greater than any of them. 

So, my friends, don't be surprised if you post some distressful tidbit and I add the comment,

"Yahweh (he who exists) will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a hedge of protection, Yahweh (he who exists) will illuminate the wholeness of his being toward you bringing order and he will provide you with love, sustenance and friendship, Yahweh (he who exists) will lift up his wholeness of being and look upon you and he will set in place all you need to be whole and complete."  

What if we all started doing that in faith as we meander in Social Media Land? Would the "circumstances" change? Maybe not, but we would.

The Midwife


by Donna Voetee

Shiphrah’s blue eyes sparkled like the gem she was named for, especially after she had been at the side of a new mother as she brought life into the world. The first cry, the joy at the end of the pain, was something that her heart lived for.

Now, she knew her life was in danger, as she could not bring herself to destroy the child that her own hands delivered. Pharaoh’s orders or not, the deed could not be done, at least by her.

Today was her friend Jochebed’s second birth. Now Miriam would have a baby brother, but for how long, no one knew. If Pharaoh’s soldiers found out, there would be a price to pay, both for the family, the infant, and herself. But for now, all had gone well and mother and child were aglow.

She left the birth room and went home to her husband and daughters, whose own azure eyes reflected the dignity and strength of their mother’s.  


The clinic was full today. That chickenpox epidemic seemed to have hit all at once. Though some would have tired of the constant wheezing and sniffling of little noses, Priscilla always loved the opportunity to be with the children.

Since she had been hired as head pediatric nurse, Dr. Thomas’s patients actually had seemed to improve. Allergy visits were further apart for many, as Dr. Thomas had noted himself. Others had had to have their Ritalin reduced or even eliminated. Priscilla sure had a way with those kids.

Dr. Thomas thought himself so lucky to find her. Many nurses of her stature would have balked, because there was a trend to question the vaccines that were being given. But not Priscilla; she made sure they all got every single one on the schedule.

The last itchy child had left the office and Dr. Thomas would be leaving early tonight, too. Though it was not in her job description, she offered to stay and get ready for tomorrow’s schedule. Dr. Thomas gratefully bid her good evening and wondered what he had ever done without her.

The door locked after him, and Priscilla knew that it would be an hour before the janitorial staff arrived. She went to work quickly, opening the locked med case. With a syringe, she deftly withdrew from each small vial the entire contents and squirted it down the sink. With another, she injected saline back into the bottle and set it back on the shelf. No child’s life would be destroyed by her hands, not even if those shots were mandatory.

Her sapphire eyes twinkled with yet another day’s job well done.
