A sample from Book 11
liars seek truth‒
falsifying a life
without any light
cutting it on cue
the coming dues
trying to convince you
all they do
true, true, true
there are few
their spots change
sending you to the loo
oh! what to do?
‒without cursing them, too
truth is truth
no half truths
‒it's either all true
or just makings
of a waterloo
…Then I will go back to my place until they admit their guilt. And they will seek my face; in their misery they will earnestly seek me….—Hosea 5:1-15
(March 17, 2017)—What is truth? I’ve written on the lie. That one post has quite a few followings. Why? In my opinion, it’s because so many people believe their own lies so much that they take it as pure truth. It is not. And those who see through the lies just know the truth. It’s that simple.
How do we know we are being deceived? That’s the question. Isn’t it? So how can we trust anyone if that thought of being deceived is always floating in the back of our minds? It’s a logical question.Logical. That’s a word. Logical seems to have gone out the window with actual facts and truth. People believe what they want to believe. Many are so strong-headed on their conditioning and traditions that they refuse to bend. Why?
Hosea 6:1-3: Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds….
Many say that the Lord does not punish. Do you believe that? I believe we have to pay for our sins. How does that work? It’s not complicated in the great scheme of things. We do wrong…i.e. what we aren’t supposed to do. Watch…bad things begin to happen over and over. But when we do what we are supposed to do, good things follow. It never fails. It’s the laws of the universe…i.e. God.
I truly believe in the law of attraction. What you do. What you say. How you act and behave. All of this brings to your life exactly what you are doing, saying and acting. So, if you have this negative outlook, always saying the words not, can’t, never, I’m broke, I have nothing, ect. ect. then guess what, you will keep having what you don’t want. But, you can turn that around. If you start saying the positive: I will, I can, this is happening, this is coming… then more and more good things come towards you. If you surround yourself with positive people, then more and more good things come your way. That’s just fact.
You can be all the positive you want, but if there’s someone in your life who is constantly negative…with that up and down look at life, you aren’t going anywhere fast.
Hosea 6:4-11: …Your love is like the morning mist, like the early dew that disappears. Therefore I cut you in pieces with my prophets, I killed you with the words of my mouth; my judgments flashed the lightning upon you. For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgement of God rather than burnt offerings….
Do you comprehend what exactly that is saying? He’s actually, in my opinion, talking about that two-faced person who is all lovey-dovey one moment, then is ripping you apart the next. It’s those kinds of people who talk about God, say they are saved and they know their way, then strike a person down like they are nothing. These people have no emotions, no conscious.
He says that he desires mercy over anything. What does that really mean? I know. Yes, call me miss know it all…it won’t be the first time. He is saying he’d rather compassion and empathy over all material things, over all fasting and Sunday church days. Example: If you saw a beggar on the street, would you help them? That’s mercy.
When you see someone in need, you do something, you don’t expect anything in return. On the opposite spectrum, when someone helps you, you should be grateful and always remember what that person has done for you no matter what else happens in their life. As I look at things, I see less and less of this happening in the world.
Watch YouTube. How many times have you watched a video where someone is getting hurt, or hurt, or in a situation that leads them to hurt and the person filming the incident just keeps filming…i.e. your entertainment for the moment on YouTube. I find this appalling!
I watched a video in horror as a mother kicks a baby over and over, then picks the baby up and slams the baby on its feet my the arm. The filmer just kept filming. Why didn’t the person filming immediately sat down that freaking camera and grab that baby and dial 911? This is happening over and over for what? To get likes? What has happened to humanity?
Why do people just stand by while others are getting hurt? Don’t they know that that very incident is placing a mark on their heart? Do these people go to a building on Sunday and bow down to God? Do they think that is all that they need to be forgiven? Nope. Sorry. It doesn’t work that way.That evil whore (the devil) knows what its doing. Don’t you know that? All this political mess. Wow! Maybe the Revelations are coming true. I have never seen such hate. White against black. Black against White. What? What?
Fact: Call yourself a child of God then go back and read what you wrote on Facebook or remember what you said in anger. Sorry. It doesn’t work that way. You can’t have your cake and eat it, too.
How many people believe everything they read and see on Facebook? In my opinion, way too many. It’s so easy to make films look real. It’s so easy to manipulate pictures. It’s so easy to spread lies to brainwash a society. One of my final papers in college was how easy it was to brainwash a nation. You can’t even imagine how easy it is. And I see it happening…and that is scary.
The mind is indeed a tricky little thing. There IS good and evil in this world. God says to be good but…but watch out for the enemy. Abraham Lincoln didn’t have a lick of political experience. He didn’t even have a formal education. He won the election for president. He was white. Not black. He gave the go ahead for the Civil War while still maintaining slaves in the White House. He is celebrated today as the black president. Really?
The idea of slavery keeps coming up. Black slavery. It’s not Africa’s fault. It’s not the Spaniard’s fault. It’s ONLY the United States of America. Really? Africa trapped their own people like dogs. That’s not made up. That’s fact. The Spaniards where the buyers of people, brought them to a slave island then sold them to the highest bidder. How many families were destroyed? How many black citizens were murdered because there wasn’t enough food to feed them?
What about the Irish? What about the Native Americans? What about the Jews? What about the Korans? What about the Chinese? Should I go on….?
If you want to blend, then don’t stand out. If you want to prevail, then don’t sink to the level of the ignorant. The only way to fight the past is to improve the future. Example: When I was divorced and went through all that crap, I kept hearing put it in the past and move on. Really? It’s kind of a hypocrite to tell me that when no one can put the past behind them. Everyone seems to live in the past.
There are mean people in this world. So. Does that make you having to be mean, too? Do you actually know God? A lot of people’s lives were taken in vane because of hate. Does hate have to continue? Or can you be bigger than hate and live according to God’s actual laws. Why does one race matter more than another? Did you know Jesus wasn’t white nor was He black? It’s something that God sent Himself in the flesh between the two primary colors. Do you ever think of that?
You argue about the now in politics. What about the past politics? Does that matter? If you say no, then you are ignorant of how life works. The past shapes the future. How many kids died in school shootings? In theater shootings? It all suddenly stopped. Why isn’t anyone questioning this? According to what I hear, this present U.S. president has already changed the entire American system. How? It took Clinton 8 years to fuck it up. It took Obama 8 years to fuck it up more. Now, you are telling me in just 1 1/2 months Trump fucked it all up. How? Policy. You must understand policy and how that works before you can condemn.
I’m French/Cajun/Indian. My ancestors suffered for me in order for me to be sitting here and writing freely. How are we honoring them by all this strife?
This is how I see it: If you are sitting on your ass collecting a welfare check, shut the hell up. You have done nothing to better the world. One of the Seven Deadly Sins…sloth! If you complain and whine and do nothing to improve your own life without using someone else, then shut the fuck up. Another of the Seven Deadly Sins. If you do nothing but act and get paid more than a doctor who actually saves a person’s life then shut the fuck up. Your money doesn’t give you authority. Sorry. You’re just entertainment.
Me…I’m totally disabled. I have several disabilities that impair my life in ways that make me want to hide from every human being on earth. But God says otherwise. I receive a VA check. That’s how I live. I worked for that. I hold a college degree. I worked all my life. I don’t live off the government. I’ve earned my way. I’ve been broke. I’ve been single with child and no insurance. I know how to survive. I was told I was lucky to have my health taken care of. Really? Lucky? If that person lived inside my body, I believe they would see it differently. I don’t want to be disabled. I would have loved to continue teaching. I would have loved to get back into Journalism. Or go to law school.
Instead, I am labeled. I have some sick woman stalking me and not a damn person sees how insane this woman is. I’m divorced after 20 years believing I had someone to always be there in sickness and health only to learn he lied. I have a family who isn’t here during my most challenged time of my life. Why stick around when I never saw them?
When are people truly going to see God? Are we at the end of times? I don’t think so. If people actually studied history and quit making up excuses that history is a lie, they would see civilizations just like this one and what caused them to fail: Greed! Hate! Lack of faith in God!
I can talk all I want but my intellectual expertise is shoved under the carpet because of stupidity and lack of the real kind of education. So, the only thing for people to do is sit back and watch the house of cards fall. Because it will. And if you speak up…wow…they seems to fall dead for some reason and no one questions it. Oh, how the revelations in the Bible speak such truth.
Anger. Hate. Jealous. Greed. Envy. Sloth. Gluttony. Pride. It all leads to just one thing: Hell. Take it as you like it. That is…IS the truth. Love the skin you are in. If you can’t love others, if your life is riddled with hate…step back and look in the mirror. It’s not others. It’s you. That’s hard to admit. Man, I wish someone would go help the stalker. She needs some serious Jesus. If you are black, be proud. If you are white, be proud. If you are black or white, take hate out of the equation no matter what. Life is precious. Too precious to waste on such things.
Here’s a small point: If you call someone Nigger or Cracker….it’s not them, it’s you! Here’s another tit-bit of truth: the KKK…they wear white covers on their faces. Don’t you see why? Cowards. The Black Panthers….all that leather and tough I’m badder than a mother fuck crap….it’s a shield. Cowards. We are all born in Christ. You want to make a difference, don’t get in bed with the enemy. Love thy neighbor even when they hurt you. That was a hard lesson to learn for me. I’m still learning.
Don’t sit around in sloth or gluttony. Do something worthy. Build a business. Get a job. Find out what truly opens your heart and go after it. It’s your choice. And you do have a choice. Don’t follow tradition. Break all those conditioned mind-sets. You can’t be negative and expect positive things to happen. Grow. Work on self. Leave those who manipulate and lie and connive to waddle in their lostness. Get out. Love yourself. You are wonderful. Of course you are, God doesn’t make junk. Man makes junk. And the good thing about that, you can always build a treasure out of junk. Have a good….GREAT day!
