Happy Easter. I am alone and going to work in several hours. It has been very depressing for me lately with several let downs but feel better by fasting for a few days now, which I will continue until Tuesday night. Yes it is the Easter season and the early church offered an alternate to the pagan feasts of Romans and the many hoards, after all God owns all the days and the Spring time is a time when much beauty rises out of seemingly dead things. A seed can only lead to fruit if it falls to the ground and dies. We see the pattern over and over again. We see it in nature. We see it even when a loved one passes on because it brings in new friends and creativity…but mostly we focus on the resurrection of Yeshua. Imagine how sadness turned to gladness in the hearts of the disciples. We must continue to spread the glory…Psalm 30

Man, and his churches have taken the Holy Word, the One Gospel of Jesus Christ and changed it in their wickedness and rebellion into hundreds upon hundreds of differing gospels and doctrines and in these last days even preach another jesus alltogether.

It is all foretold perfectly in scripture, even that satan takes rulership in each and every church of the world, and that is completed. Inasmuch as no one who remains in religions and churches will come to salvation, they will perish forever.

We are to trust the bible alone and turn to Him as Lord and saviour and pray for mercy and salvation, and then it May come.

I, the Lord, do search the heart, try the reins, Even to give to each according to his way, According to the fruit of his doings. -Jeremiah 17:10

In recent times I generally have verbally stopped requesting things in prayer because out of thousands of requests I have only received a few clear answers and have felt let down. This is my honest feelings on this. The testing of this (1 Thessalonians 5:21) has indicated, at least, to me that requests in prayers are largely useless, for whatever the reason. For me it has became evident that the good Lord has given me certain abilities and a lovely mother so I am able to work through problems. God could be sculpting me indirectly through circumstances and each person God handles differently.

Do not misunderstand me. I still pray, and often, but it is prayers of thanks….and praise. Jesus Christ is Lord. I also know that God can read my inward being. Jeremiah 17:10 tells us that the Lord searches the heart (Leb), and the kidneys (kilyah) of everyone. These two indicate the complete person inwardly and their desires. Your inner being speaks to God. Just some brief thought for the day.

“And if thine eye doth cause thee to stumble (sin), pluck it out and cast from thee; it is good for thee one-eyed to enter into the life, rather than having two eyes to be cast to the gehenna of the fire.”–Matt. 18:9 Young’s Literal Translation

When Jesus stated these words he was not ordering people to literally gouge out an eye because they were tempted to sin by what they see. What jesus was doing was urging people to stop doing the sin as it ultimately ends in destruction. Remember that Romans 6:28 tells us that the wages of sin is death. Jesus warned people about the awful garbage heap of destruction where the corpses of criminals often would end up. It was a place of stench and maggots were crawling around continuously. Here and there was a a slow smoking fire where wind would push some of the smells around about. Some view it as a prototype of the final lake of fire where all the bad things are consumed. Sin eventually leads to such an end.

There are some sins we often get caught up in but generally do not think of these as such. One of these is the sin of compromising with wrong. We may find ourselves watching a dirty movie because everyone else is. We think to ourselves that I do not womanize or gamble and drink but then we turn around and enjoy a movie that celebrates these things…when we should shun it. Christian maturity needs to be developed to the point of avoiding these things. And this is something to think on.

We are all very aware of the fact that malcontents are going around and pulling down war memorials along with historical monuments. This is even being encouraged by so-called civil rights organizations. These activities are evil and mostly senseless. Some do not like some aspects of history but it is important to remember the past and to learn from it. History and heritage are good teachers. Lets not hide it!

Spanish American philosopher George Santayana said, “Those that can not remember mistakes from the past are forced to relive them”. That is my paraphrase and many other thinkers have stated similar statements. Some might wonder if the word of God promotes the teaching of history and heritage. Yes, the scriptures do indeed tell us to not forget the past, and that it is to be promoted! Just look at the wonderful Book of Deuteronomy, at chapter 4 (verse 4)…

“But watch out! Be careful never to forget what you yourself have seen. Do not let these memories escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren.”

Actually Deuteronomy is a book full of logic and promotes heritage. It influenced the prophet Jeremiah as he tried to reform Judah, and it was quoted in the New Testament.

It seems that depression for me is something that is always there but just swells up and down like the tide along a lake. Loneliness is also its companion. I just could not stop thinking of many of the laments of David in the Psalms and elsewhere. He was let down by so many and felt abandon even by God…Psalm 13. The fact that you feel this way tells me that you long for what is right but are stuck in the mud of this fallen world. I feel for you and pray. In this life, as believers we have one foot in this world and one in the next. We go through many dark valleys but eventually all this will end…

All we can do is give it to God (Philippians 4:6-13)..

“And when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honor.” -1 peter 5:4

I like this verse, penned under inspiration, by Simon Peter. The “Great Shepherd” is Jesus, our God (EL). The basic word for God in Hebrew is EL and is an Aleph and Lamda, an Ox head and a Staff, both pointing at strength and authority, which is what Christ Jesus has. We receive a crown which is not a kingly crown but rather a crown (Stephanos) of victory, because we overcome this world and its woes. In the Koine Greek is found the word “Amaranthinon” and is translated “unfading” or “never-ending” depending on the translation. There is a beautiful flowering plant with a form of that name, and perhaps it was used for wreaths in ancient times. We can see that the “crown of never ending glory” is more of a garland wreath akin to the winner of a footrace, in this case the race of life. We run the race with a focus on Christ Jesus.

So often we don’t take advantage of the Grace that gives us access to the Throne room of God as it is stated, “Come boldly into the Throne Room” – Heb. 4:16. We can have an audience with God not only as Sovereign but as our Father. A special dispensation for all who clamor for more than serving a higher authority for which God has given us an open door anytime we desire to.

Put on, Christ! Again; I say, “Put on Christ”! For without Him there is no peace. By insidiousness does the dark one works for a false peace of control. But by Christ is there peace of love. For love conquers all, only when done in peace and by the Word of Truth. For is not all things made for Him, including peace? Who then can deny in Him is peace.
