‘Motivationally Speaking’

Forgiveness. To forgive others is very important. It does not give them the right to come at you and sin against you again. Just walk away. Your forgiveness does NOT relieve them of their sins. It relieves YOU of the burden of their sins!

 Motivationally Speaking
the craze of the say
let's all yell hurray
what else–
we gonna make up today
to ease your weight
how about:
go make merry‒
live in fake
we'll help you celebrate
your fakeness in play
all your mocked-up pictures
in sway
we'll help fabricate
‒just keep the lights low
then they won't have to compare
after your persuade‒
in your sexual play
they'll then celebrate
every move you make
for another night with you
in the hay
just keep those lights
down low...bae-bae
maybe it's not what we say
to make you change your ways
maybe we'll just say
what you outright did today
how about:
that do-what-you-want play
anything someone else has‒
you're free to take
anything you give someone‒
you can rip up...break
‒we're just gonna
give you the truth today
Jesus† said it in sway
‒not in delay
either seven or seventy-seven
forgiveness must be given
not for your benefit
but for the victims
of your bullraé
your crime‒
already noted in betray
not a risqué
but part of your resumé
you will have to answer‒
one day
good luck with that‒
you had a choice
you chose sin's freeway
your heart‒
how heavy those marks make
for the forgiveness given to you
doesn't benefit you
sorry, you miss-read
words Jesus† had to say
so sorry boo-boo
I'd re-study...without delay
how about:
all your desiring decay
house, clothes, jewels
status, glamour, glitz
‒a misuse of the clay
your darkness' entreé
a denying mess of hurray
taking the other two‒
all that pride and ego
all those lies
all that manipulate
burying it in your false exposé
an obtrusive denying overlay
as you move in pace
without caring who you betray
‒doing judas...your forté
it's all your choice
your on-going heyday
‒go on...celebrate
live in your world of blasé
it ends‒
in a coup d'état
an afterlife's communiqué
so enjoy the frappés
sit...toast to all those
you betrayed
take your new prey
go ahead...lay
‒it's only for today
maybe a few todays
but then....
judgment by Yahweh†
your heart gets weighed
ooh! ouch!
you should have listened‒
words Jesus† had to say
ooh! shae bae-bae
laisse le bon temps rouler
settle down, now
touché, touché
‒your choice is made

Note: The photograph was taken on October 23rd, The Dragon and the All Seeing Eye. God has sent many pictures since this day, and there is no doubt they are from Him. On March 1, He sent another amazing angel. I’ll get to putting this set up soon. The most amazing aspect of life is discovering the truth about God and Heaven.

(March 10)―I started this piece several days ago and really didn’t want to finish it. I’ve written about this subject so many times and I wonder how many more ways I can say it. I reckon…many! It’s an important issue. I constantly read about women and men going through the horrible aftermath of someone not caring about their own soul and pillaging others like they were trash. It’s such a sad reality. There are so many unhealed people walking around thinking they are bullet-proof. In the eyes of God…not so!

….Your hands are full of blood; wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of My sight! Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.—Isaiah 1:10-17

Interesting, isn’t it? Back in 2016, in a piece titled, ‘Unformalized‘ (in Book 10), I began that piece with:

 it attacks you
–you cry out
but before–
you didn't guard the door
why ask
'what for'
when you did nothing
to detour
all this blood and gore

I was writing on a national level with that piece, then I was directed to Isaiah again, but on a personal level. God’s bid for self-healing is very important. It’s not for me to tell you how you can get through the healing process of something that is buried so far deep inside of you that you just feel better off not dealing with it. That’s not the way of it. The only way to remove the marks on your heart is to deal with that long-ago issue.

Pride is an awful mess to be in. The punisher lies to you when it fills you up with pride. You are NO better than the next man. I don’t care how much money you have. I don’t care what status you have or color of your skin. There are ONLY two gates: the light or the pit. Your choice! It’s all about what you DO here on earth. And every single person will be tested over and over. So many have failed and aren’t even trying to redeem themselves. The sad part is knowing truth and watching so many buy into all the lies!

God and Jesus…their worth, their truth…no one should have to beg you for their attention! Sorry, that’s just dumb! God created you. You can believe all the lies. Go ahead, be my guest! The end game…that’s the focus. But you’ve lost focus. You concentrate on all the bells and whistles. They are bells and whistles for a reason!

I got so caught up in the material aspect of life at one time; I got so caught up in the gossip of it all. Then when I stepped back and let God use me for His benefit, I saw so much more that just horrified me that people can actually believe all that garbage out there. I had lies put in front of me with the most serious of faces, and all I could think to myself was, ‘Lord, I know I’m doing this because You have an end game, but do I have to deal with the stupidity?’ I was so dumb-found in the sense of  ‘how on earth did this person get this far in life without being put in jail or killed?’

Then God showed me His way. Forgiveness. And it was easy for me because He veiled me over and over again so I could write truth without actually feeling it’s aftermath for very long. That was a blessing! Now, I’m on a different journey and I was assured that I will remain unveiled for the rest of it and that I have to deal with any resentment and heartache and just forgive. Do you know how hard that is when you have the constant memory of what happened in your mind? And you go over and over it and think ‘what the hell was I thinking’? Well, those thoughts are coming from the punisher to test us further. WE are okay as long as WE don’t act on those thoughts.

My case is a bit different because my vow was to write for the Lord, so that’s what I have to do. I am here to write the truth about life. And that truth isn’t pretty, and those who offended against me have to face that truth through me, if they like it or not. That is what it means to write for the Lord. Reality is far different from the fantasies unhealed people live. They don’t see themselves, they see what they dream life could be. They don’t’ see the reason behind why they can’t truly see themselves. And anything that gets in the way of that vision, they squash and keep plowing on. Only, God wants the plowing on part halted and the healing to begin!

Sin of InjusticeSee how the faithful city has become a harlot [prostitute]! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her—but now murderers! Your silver has become dross [worthless], your choice wine is diluted with water. Your rulers are rebels, companions of thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts. They do not defend the cause of the fatherless; the widow’s case does not come before them. Therefore the Lord, the Lord Almighty, the Mighty One of Israel [you], declares: ‘Ah, I will get relief from My foes and avenge Myself on My enemies. I will turn My hand against you; I will thoroughly purge away your dross [worthlessness] and remove all your impurities. I will restore your judges as in days of old, your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City.’—Isaiah 1:21-26

Notes:  The heavy price of not understanding the Bible is a sad reality. I read a quote a few days ago that still bothers me. It read something like: Instead of trying to rewrite the Bible, try reading it. Many man-made religions have already done this. That’s God’s book. He knows what’s going on. And reading the Bible doesn’t make anyone an expert. Applying what you read does!

Injustice. Do you understand what God is saying here? He’s talking to you. He says this over and over in His book. He tells you that He will bring you down, strip all that ugliness off of you, and rebuild you. In the end, He will know the truth of your heart. He is saying that He knows who you are! You can try and pretend all you want but He knows. This a lot of folks don’t understand. All that strife you encounter…God is bringing that to your life for a reason. It’s up to you to figure out the reason! That’s the freaking lesson. He’s also trying His damnest to get you to turn on Him. Oh, how He does this to me. I rebuke Him. Yes, I rebuke the Lord. I tell Him that He won’t win. I will NEVER get me to turn on Him!

On the human side, you can go around and bring your disaster and then leave, sooner or later it will catch up with you. Do you know the saddest part that I have seen? It’s the person who begins to understand why all the strife came in their life when it’s way too late to experience truth with the one person that truly loved them. I can see it in their eyes. So they sit there in their 60s, 70s, 80s fantasying about that one person. And then there’s that one person…that person loved so to love again is hard because they were the honest one, the truth.

See how remaining unhealed just destroys things. It’s a very sad reality that many refuse to face and everyone who comes into contact with them are affected. The vine. Isn’t that something!

Sin of IdolatryYou have abandoned your people, the house of Jacob. They are full of superstitions from the East; they practice divination like the Philistines and clasp hands with pagans. Their land is full of silver and gold; there is no end to their treasures. Their land is full of horses; there is no end to their chariots. Their land is full of idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their fingers have made. So man will be brought low and mankind humbled—do not forgive them.—Isaiah 2:6-9

Note:  God says this over and over as well. Things made by man’s hands will never fulfill that need deep inside. I see it every day on my Facebook wall. People chasing the dream. And they miss out what is right in front of them. Do you know that true happiness is found in fellowship, togetherness? Without that, without building together, there’s nothing. And when I talk about together, I mean on the same page. Not one thinking love is real, here’s a relationship that will last and the other faking that, while cheating with other people. That’s not together. That’s idolatry…the worship of the body, sex, sexy!

Don’t worry. The time will come when you are forced to face your crap. It’s not an if; it’s a when!

Sin of PrideGo into the rocks, hide in the ground from dread of the Lord and the splendor of His majesty! The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled and the pride of men brought low; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day. The Lord Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted (and they will be humbled), for all the cedars of Lebanon, tall and lofty, and all the oaks of Bashan, for all the towering mountains and all the high hills, for every lofty tower and every fortified wall, for every trading ship and every stately vessel. The arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men humbled; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day, and the idols will totally disappear.—Isaiah 2:10-18

Note: God tells you here that He will bring you down. He says over and over in the Bible that He will send in the punisher and test you. That’s your darkness. How will you weather? In my experience, seeing those who are tested byway of me, they didn’t fair well. That is very sad to see. And my tests were hard. I didn’t fair well at times and back around I went. No ifs, ands, or buts!

Forgiveness. To forgive others is very important. It does not give them the right to come at you and sin against you again. Just walk away. Your forgiveness does NOT relieve them of their sins. It relieves YOU of the burden of their sins! So do yourself a favor…be free of their crap!
