What Says You
defiance in its true nature
reaches those too immature
to know the difference
‒a veiled struggling creature
avoiding words of the one
over two thousand years ago
blood fell on hands‒
those in the know
as they began to sow
of silver and gold
dawning black hats and robes
ignoring what Jesus† came to show
choices of ignorance
‒God† released His† grasp
time slips in its venture
here and there...new adventures
from the one and only teacher
He† will come
without another lecture
He† will come
in storms of weather
they'll be no guessing‒
go on being the hater, the abuser
you won't have to wonder
when it's time‒
you won't deny
the presence of the creator
so go on...go!
be the reason
be thoughtless and bold
absent silver and gold
He's† coming to decide‒
who stays, who goes
who rises, who He† shall behold
152...a good number to consider
ignore...it doesn't matter
He's† never been the taker
‒a constant in giver
giving all chances in reconsider
now His† patience is on the damper
time is over...in chatter
get on your knees‒
be the prayer
change your heart
to the honest giver
repent in matters of sinner
‒time in choose
is now on the ledger‒
no turning back‒
He's† becoming the taker!
(August 8)—My spiritual journey is continuing. I’m not really ready to talk about it but I’m sure there will come a day. Today, I was led to Acts…pages that I never marked up. I have been questioning my journey lately. I’m a woman…as a former Catholic…I asked: I’m a woman. What authority do I have to talk about such things? I’m not kidding. The Catholic church has re-positioned the woman below man for hundreds and hundreds of years. I’m lucky to have finally had my eyes opened to their cruel injustice…truly against anything the Bible teaches!
But I still have that embedded inside of me, so I battle with it. Acts 17! Woman is mentioned three times! Three. Always the power of three. But that is not all that is mentioned. This part of Scripture talks about how wrong the Jews were. A people who lived…LIVED…by the word of God! The way they treated Paul reminds me so much of Islam. Yeah, go ahead and ridicule me. I really don’t give a flying fuck. Facts are facts!
What is it about LOVE that the enemy hates so much!? That’s an honest question to ask. In my long-term relationships, I put love on the front always. It was the turn of events and the guys’ true nature when it came down to the truth about love. They defied it like it was a plague. Oh, that’s that evil whore by the way.
In today’s writing, ‘What Says You’, God’s not playing around. He’s not going to force anything. People change on their own, but they have to be willing and they have to ask God for help. Change will not come without God. Sorry. It may seem like change comes, but it’s an illusion. Always is. If God is not in the equation, that evil whore is playing the fuck out of you!
I’m including here all the Scripture from Acts 17 and the first of Acts 18. The bold in each Scripture caught my attention fully. If you don’t own a Bible, that’s okay. It seems slowly but surely God is having me copy the whole thing in these writings. He’s pretty great that way. I think the Bible should be issued out to every soul on earth for free. I know some charities do that. That’s a good thing. I pray that those free Bibles aren’t leaving things out. Honestly, the Scriptures I’ve written about in the last eight writings weren’t taught to me! And I was Catholic, went to religion classes every week and received all the sacraments! Funny, how that is!
In the following Scripture, Paul is traveling the world teaching about Christ. Between him and the other apostles, I don’t think they left one part of the world out. China completely dissed them. Other places imprisoned them, beat them, ridiculed them. Jesus did say that He didn’t come to bring peace but to divide! He was right. Of course He was!
When they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollnia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a Jewish synagogue. As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead. ‘This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Christ,’ he said. Some of the Jews were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a large number of God-fearing Greeks and not a few prominent women.—Acts 17:1-4
I haven’t really talked about this yet, but I will later. In Acts 17:1-4: …explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead. This is very important because a lot of people don’t understand this. Why? Because it fucking wasn’t explained to us properly. I read on Facebook a lot: How’s Jesus going to save me when He couldn’t save Himself! The misconception is horrifying because the fact is Jesus HAD to die. It’s all written there in the Bible: Romans! Did anyone teach you about that? I don’t recall it being taught to me!
The New Covenant HAD to be sealed by blood…Jesus’ blood. I wrote a little about this in Orchestrated Part, which talks about the Jews’ part in the death of Jesus. There was NO getting around Jesus dying! None. He came just to DIE! For us! You must understand this in order to fully understand the message He also came to deliver. It is really sad what the man-made churches decide to teach…and what NOT to teach! They DO NOT teach the whole truth. They use God and Jesus to make a profit in pretend!
Even Jesus’ resurrection was for a purpose. That’s also fully explained in Romans! Fully! That was not explained to me as a child either. I wrote about this in my last eight writings. To totally understand what it meant by die and live in the Bible, you have to understand what the Resurrection meant! It was symbolization to the fullest and it gave us the true meaning of life. The churches leave that shit out!
But the Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city. They rushed to Jason’s house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd. But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some other brothers before the city officials, shouting: ‘These men who have caused trouble all over the world have now come here, and Jason has welcomed them into his house. They are all defying Caesar’s decrees, saying that there is another king, one called Jesus.’ When they heard this, the crowd and the city officials were thrown into turmoil. Then they made Jason and the others post bond and let them go.—Acts 17:5-9
If the Jews fully followed the word of God then why were they jealous? Why did they intentionally cause chaos? As in ‘Orchestrated Part’, it wasn’t really jealousy as much as it was defiance because God veiled them to test them and they were acting like the spoiled little brats that they had become. They thought they’d ALWAYS be the ONLY people that God called His own. They would have been if they’d appreciated the test that God put them through. After all, God gives those He loves the hardest of tests. The Jews didn’t see it that way. They became the bullies of the world! And over and over God sent test after test to them, trying to shake them up into realizing that they killed His son and their hearts had proven to be weak.
God’s waiting. He’s always waiting for us to choose Him. He won’t force it. In the past, He kind of tried to force it through the Jews by all the turmoil that group of people suffered. It STILL didn’t make them see truth! That’s a bit fucked up! From the beginning, they were a defiant people. But they are also an example of the individual.
We don’t like to be fooled. We don’t like to be betrayed. The tests that we go through are difficult and hard, but they are for a reason: To help us mature. We can be 60 years old and still not be mature in Christ. And that is what I mean when I talk about Mature! There’s a big difference in thinking we know Christ and truly knowing Him! A HUGE difference.
As soon as it was night, the brothers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scripture every day to see if what Paul said was true. Many of the Jews believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.—Acts 17:10-12
The Bible, the New Testament, men and women are equal. All abusive people are unbelievers…and love is everything. Trying to undo years of teachings…woman is supposed to ‘serve’ man!…is hard to do especially when you have entire cultures and countries demanding this by sure force. All this sex-human trafficking…reasons why is because woman is learning the truth, so these perverted evil people are forcing the hand! The pit! Down! Down! Down!
When the Jews in Thessalonica learned that Paul was preaching the word of God at Berea, they went there too, agitating the crowds and stirring them up. The brothers immediately sent Paul to the coast, but Silas and Timothy stayed at Berea. The men who escorted Paul brought him to Athens and then left with instructions for Silas and Timothy to join him as soon as possible.—Acts 17:13-15
Again, the Jews prove themselves to be liars because they aren’t following God’s commandments in either way…Old and New Testament. They intentionally caused problems! There is no other reason except that they are pissed at God for veiling them, testing them. They killed His son…get over it and repent! That’s pretty much what God has been telling them ever since. Still. They don’t listen. Oh, well. The time is drawing near to choose. I think a lot of people have some serious soul searching to do. There’s still time. Only, will the people use that time wisely? That’s a big question!
While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was full of idols. So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Greeks, as well as the marketplace day by day with those who happened to be there. A group of Epicurean and Stoic philosophers began to dispute with him. Some of them asked, ‘What is this babbler trying to say?’ Others remarked, ‘He seems to be advocating foreign gods.’ They said this because Paul was preaching the good news about Jesus and the resurrection. Then they took him and brought him to a meeting of the Areopagus, where they said to him, ‘May we know what this new teaching is that you are presenting? You are bringing some strange ideas to our ears, and we want to know what they mean.’ (All the Athenians and the foreigners who lived there spent their time doing nothing but talking about and listening to the latest ideas.)—Acts 17:16-21
I find this Scripture rather amusing because the Greeks are known throughout history to worship foreign gods especially the material kind and here they are ridiculing Paul for talking about Christ! But you really do have to think hard about the times this is taking place. There is NO internet or TV or even phones. They know what is around them and that is it! So, Paul is talking about something totally new as is written in the following Scripture! To get these people to even listen to him is amazing…because as you know of history, out of Athens…Greek…came some of the most important philosophers to have ever lived. They were extremely smart! Extremely! Interesting, isn’t it? Paul, having the courage to bring the news of our Lord to them…something they had NEVER heard before!
Think about Paul when you are trying to begin a new business or learn something totally new. Think about his journey when you are faced with the uncomfortable of the world. He did the ultimate marketing…to the HARDEST of crowds! Isn’t that something!
Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: ‘Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you. ‘The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything, because He Himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would see Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. ‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are His offspring.’ Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone—an image made by man’s design and skill. In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent. For He has set a day when He will judge the world with justice by the man He has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising Him from the dead.’—Acts 17:22-31
I’ve written about this for years. All my books are pretty much surrounded by this idea: God isn’t in a fucking building! There is the Scripture, right above, that proves it if you need to see it in writing! Shame that you do. When Jesus sealed the new covenant, God put the Holy Spirit in our minds and His love in our hearts. From that moment on, we no longer needed some preacher to tell us about God. Of course, it took years and years for all the works of Jesus and God to be put into a book. In our generation, we have NO excuse because this one book is available every where. It is YOUR responsibility to open it up and read!
You have to decide for yourself. You are too smart to have some jackass tell you about God because chances are that person doesn’t know God fully. The Bible is a breathing, living book. It speaks to all of us differently at different times in our lives. You must understand it for yourself. Every part of the New Testament. The Old Testament explains to you who God is. He wants you to know Him. He’s in charge. Always. Learn His ways. Learn how He moves your life. Without Him, confusion will constantly surface. Everything happens for a reason. EVERYTHING. Learn the why and you will begin to understand what life is meant to mean for you. And…NO ONE can tell you what your life means to you! No One!
When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but others said, ‘We want to hear you again on this subject.’ At that, Paul left the Council. A few men became followers of Paul and believed. Among them was Dionysius, a member of the Areopagus, also a woman named Damaris, and a number of others.—Acts 17:32-34
Again, woman…isn’t it great to learn the truth about shit! I don’t like to be deceived…at ALL! As in my journey, it only appeared that I was being deceived. Doing something for God means not listening to anyone but Him. That’s really hard to do because you have to go with your heart, no matter what, when doing something for God and a lot of people won’t understand your journey. It is NOT meant for them to understand. It’s none of their business. When you see the journey through, without giving up, the veils are removed and you learn fully what your journey meant…not just to you or for you because we all do things for God that betters everyone. We are the body, we are supposed to work together…move each other forward, help each other out. Oh, that is fully explained in the Bible as well!
After this, Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently came from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all the Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them, and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them. Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks.—Acts 18:1-4
I included this Scripture because the reaping evil whore makes itself known early on. Rome…oh, the price to pay! The Jews have to face their repentances…and the hypocrisy of Rome…Oh, how amusing!
When Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ. But when the Jews opposed Paul and became abusive, he shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, ‘Your blood be on your own heads! I am clear on my responsibility. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.’ Then Paul left the synagogue and went next door to the house of Titius Justus, a worshiper of God.—Acts 18:5-7
There you go! The Israel…My People…became the world. The Jews are totally left on their own! So, when you read the Bible and you read it as if the Jews (Israel) is the only people of God, you are not understanding what happened. We became…all of us…God’s people when Jesus’ blood sealed the new covenant. So don’t ever think God doesn’t love you. He loves all of us. He is patient and His love is unconditional.
He does NOT like abuse…AT ALL! So, if you were divorced because of abuse…you are already forgiven. The abuser…in any form…is an unbeliever no matter what they say. Believers do NOT abuse! So, hold your head up high. God has your back!
There are so many things that the churches do NOT teach us…why do they leave parts of the Bible out? Why? Here’s a tip: If the church you attend has this big fancy building and thousands and thousands of dollars in the bank, they are of the world! That is said in the Bible by the way! Nothing I talk about is NOT in the Bible.
Get a Bible. I was told that different Bibles say different things. I had three Bibles and I had compared them, they all said the same thing. The words were different, but the meanings were the same. Pray. Get the Bible that God sends to you. It’s sent to you for a reason. Trust it!
