times long ago
when we weren't yet
ready to go
a time when
we had no control
–a stripping of our
began our fold
our freedom of self
Note: The photograph that accompany’s this work was taken November 9, 2019, Certainty of Visions. God showing off His art. God time is not ours, but He warns through His prophets so that you may prepare because you do not know when His time is coming. And it IS coming!
(January 22, 2020)—Before the age of 18, our inner makings change because of something someone else did. It doesn’t matter all the wrong decisions we might have made before that exact time when another person came into our lives and told us the ultimate lie, and we believed it because we were too young to know the difference.
Every single one of us has this moment.
I wrote ‘Wrecked Moments’ this morning before reading anything, then I hear David say, ‘Open the Bible, I’ll lead you to the Scripture that goes with that.’ So, I did. Amazing. The first letter Paul wrote to Timothy from Macedonia to encourage him to not give up because there was a lot of fools loose mixing up things. Not much has changed. In fact, many things are worse; hence, what was pointed out to me today. As the commentarians of my Bible write:
Paul gives Timothy personal instruction and advice on a variety of matters and warns him concerning both false doctrine and those who would teach false doctrines, whose only goals in teaching is either making money or achieving popularity.—The Daily Bible in Chronological Order
It shouldn’t be hard to pick out this type of doctrine teaching, but apparently it is because people seems to gravitate to the doctrines their friends choose, or the doctrines that are popular because they want to fit in the crowd. It doesn’t matter the reason, false doctrine is false doctrine, and more people are following it than ever before. I explain below.
First Letter to Timothy: Paul. Instructions for the Church
*Unsound Doctrine—As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God’s work—which is by faith. The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk. They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.—1 Timothy 1:3-7
NOTES: …command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies…As I read the Old Testament when I’m led to it, there is genealogies all over the place. I have to remind myself that Jesus instructed us not to waste our time on this anymore. Does anyone know why? I’m going to tell you, don’t worry. He said this because after Jesus was resurrected, God didn’t have a particular chosen people. Everyone became Israel, so it didn’t matter who was what. Yes, the tribes still matter, but there have been so much interbreeding that only God knows who will be chosen to inherit the new Earth. So, don’t go worry your fuzzy little head over that. What you do have to worry about is are you living a sound life that will get you into the kingdom?
These promote controversies rather than God’s work—which is by faith. The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith…See. Like I said above…worry about your heart and that it is clean and your conscience is clean. Sincere faith is when you know you are doing right and you know God is guiding your way. It is really hard to accept this because of all the false doctrines out there, but you have to open yourself up to the Lord, and in order to do this, you have to heal from what hurt you, you have to disclose, pull it out of the darkness, and let it go. It is very sad to witness people who are up in age and are mixed up still because of something that happen a very long time ago. And they are. They drink, they womanize, they do drugs, they concentrate on money, they have strong egos, they are so prideful, they don’t care whom they hurt…this is all indications of unhealed hearts. They glamorize their childhoods. They lie…like they don’t know any better and they are grown people. These hearts are not healed. They are not sincere. Instead, they are hatful, they are driven on politics, they blame, they call people names, they are really children in grown-up bodies…that’s the unhealed heart.
Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk. They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm…Meaning, as Jesus said, they talk, but they don’t practice what they preach. They are fake. Be careful…they are easy to spot once you learn the truth.
*Law to Be Used Properly—We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. We also know that law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious; for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which He entrusted to me.—1 Timothy 1:8-11
NOTES: ….and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which He entrusted to me…And what is contrary to what he listed here? Love. That is the glorious gospel! The only law that’s needed. If you LOVE, you don’t want to do the rest!
Paul An Example—I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that He considered me faithful, appointing me to His service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display His unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on [in] Him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.—1 Timothy 1:12-17
NOTES: Jesus is patient. So is God. Paul [Saul] was one of the worst of the apostles (before he became an apostle) and still God found favor in him. So, it doesn’t matter what we have done in our past, it’s what God wants from our future that matters. He puts us through the darkness, and during that time, we commit all grievances of sins. He knows this. And when we finally see truth, when we acknowledge His love, He pulls us out. When He sees our learning curve, if you want to call it that, when He sees we are willing to see the entire truth of Him, THEN He’s willing to teach us.
Timothy To Keep Faith—Timothy, my son, I give you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight, holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith. Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.—1 Timothy 1:18-20
NOTES: ….you may fight the good fight, holding on to faith and a good conscience…Holding on to a good conscience is very important. Guilt…having guilt on your conscience about the littlest things means you care. Carrying guilt, as in sin on your heart, often gets buried deep inside of you and it surfaces in more harmful things you do. It’s always good to do self-checks. Me, I have such a guilty conscience. Always have. I questioned this a lot. I always felt guilty for the tiniest of things, even when I didn’t do anything wrong. I’m told it’s because I care so much. That eased my burden a lot. So, if you, too, have this guilt-ridden conscience, don’t worry. Give it to God. It is those who don’t have this guilt-ridden conscience that is worrisome because they don’t feel like they do anything wrong…that’s not good at all.
Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme…I had to laugh out loud at this statement because this is God speaking. He said that because these two fellas talked against Him, so He gave them to Satan for a lesson. This is what God does! If we screw up, He doesn’t write us off right away. He just gives us a teaching party per say! Satan is the one who administers His punishments…if you haven’t figured that out by now!
*Call For Men to Pray—I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all men—the testimony given in its proper time. And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles. I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.—1 Timothy 2:1-8
NOTES: Saving souls. On August 21, 2019, I was instructed to read the entire New Testament out loud without stopping. I did. I reached this passage at 11:55 p.m. There were several passages that I felt to note the time beside it in my Bible. This was one of them.
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness…The same applies to us all today.
God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of truth…God hasn’t changed. He wanted this in the Old Testament and He demands it in the New Testament. He stated this in the Visions and all the writings that He sends us through me. He wants as many people healed as possible. Plant those seeds…that’s what He tells me!
For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,…It is interesting that he refers to Jesus as a mediator, which He really is. He is calm and brotherly…a high priest. God is the one with the wrath, so I can imagine Jesus the Judge. Remember Him when He overturned the tables in the temple. It has to be a lot to set Him off. The next thing said is very interesting…who gave Himself as a ransom for all men—the testimony given in its proper time…There is more to come!
I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing…He says the same thing as the first line I pulled, but in a different way. Important is not even a word when it comes to this. This is love…living like this. Why can’t men do it is beyond me!
Women to Be Modest—I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.—1 Timothy 2:9,10
The Role of Women—A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But woman will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.—1 Timothy 2:11-15
NOTES: I wrote by the above two scriptures: Man. I wrote that because Jesus did not single out women in His preaching. He actually said that man and woman were equal. He didn’t say that woman had to sit behind man, or eat after men, or were an open ‘hole‘ for men to pillage, or that they couldn’t teach or preach, or that they had to learn in silence. In fact, go ahead and read His words, He spoke of women highly, and mentioned women numerous times. Peter and John both singled out women in their testimony. If you read the two scriptures above, Paul says ‘I’…not God or Jesus. I have so much to say here.
For Adam was formed first, then Eve…Yes, she was a gift. God didn’t want man to be alone, so He gave man a gift…WOMAN! He also refers to woman in the visions he sent us through me as the gift.
As for Adam and Eve. First, Eve was used in the test, if you want to look at it this way…the Process of God…and Adam was too weak to resist. So the man actually failed the test. Then Jesus opened up the New Covenant. What happened between Adam and Eve and all else was put under Jesus. Of all the descriptions in the Bible that put women below men, I can surely say the meanings now because of the experiences I’ve been having. I wouldn’t be having them if God didn’t see the light in women as the gift, not only as the mother of the world, but also the guide which leads men to the light of the kingdom. I am woman. He’s showing me the light personally. He’s showing me how man actually needs the light of woman, and they have to know better if the prince of the earth uses a woman to deceive, the same goes with the woman.
God is in charge of everything. This is still not driven in the mine hard enough. The sweet man still hasn’t learned this… blaming all his bad decisions on me. This isn’t so. When a man can’t see his own faults, he is still under…buried in his darkness. It is not the fault of women that men fall to deception and pillage because of what hurt them. Men do not have a right to take their pain out on women. This only leads them to the pit. What Paul says here in the second Scripture, I’m sorry, that was not what Jesus said. He was being influenced by man’s law of the time. It contradicts what Jesus said. Why was it allowed in the Bible? There is a lot in the New Testament that was allowed that describes the old way before Jesus, as well as Scripture that describes the new way after Jesus…it all balls down to love. Jesus said men and women walk side by side. Paul elected to remain single, so he has a lot to say about couples and that of being with woman. Jesus said we were meant to live as couples. Today, when I’m instructed by Him, He tells me we are actually made in twos.
Propriety: (Noun) the state or quality of conforming to conventionally accepted standards of behavior or morals; the details or rules of behavior conventionally considered to be correct; the condition of being right, appropriate, or fitting.
Qualifications of Elders—Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer [bishop], he desires a noble task. Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.—1 Timothy 3:1-7
NOTES: Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money…Oh dear! This isn’t just a bishop, this is any clergy saying they know the ways of the Lord. Here is what pisses me off…the husband of but one wife. Isn’t this the law every where? This is Paul, Jesus’ apostle saying this! Remember this is of the times when Paul was alive. Jesus instructs me that everything is permissible when it comes to lovers, but only one lover is permissible. Meaning: One man and one woman binded together can have all the pleasure they want with each other.
He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap…In today’s world, conceited is flying every where especially in the churches. When have you seen a priest sit on the floor? Or one of those T.V. or Youtube cronies get their hands dirty feeding the hungry or clothing the poor? And they don’t see what they are doing. Oh, it gets worse…what I’m pointed out today!
…fall under the same judgment as the devil…fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap…He says the same thing twice. I’d pay attention if you are part of any church.
Qualifications of Deacons—Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. In the same way, their wives are to be women worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well. Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.—1 Timothy 3:8-13
NOTES: During the reading of the New Testament, as was instructed on August 21, 2019, when I read this particular passage, I began to hear sirens.
…deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well…There it is again…about one wife. Remember again that this was in the time of Paul. This is no longer acceptable in God’s eyes! And this was said twice…worthy of respect…The question I have is: What deems a person worthy of respect? A lot flows through my mind because what I see and who I see get respect, I’m a bit confused. Man has a screwed up way of deeming who gets respect. I figured that one out: Those who bow down to man’s rules. They get the respect. Those who actually, truly bow down to God’s laws do not get the respect. In fact, they are deemed witches, false prophets, crazy. This has been since the beginning of time, so your dispute of it is ludicrous. Thousands and thousands of years and you still haven’t learned who God is. He shows you. He does it very well, too. The reason why you refuse to see Him? You love the dark too much. Jesus said that right away! He knew. Of course, He knew. He watched it happened for a very long time before He actually came to Earth!
Reason for Instructions—Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, if am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He [God] appeared in a body [in the flesh], was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.—1 Timothy 3:14-16
NOTES: …how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth…What is God’s household? Is it a building? Is it an organization? Is it an institution? NOPE to ALL! It is the human body! We tend to screw that up royally, but we always have another chance to get it right. The only problem…not enough people are taking that second chance! Or they are waiting too long to take it, and in the process of that time, they are screwing up more people whom they come into contact with. Shame!
He [God] appeared in a body [in the flesh]…God is in all of us, as Jesus is in all of us. God is the Father. Jesus is the Son. God is Father of all of us. He is the master creator. Jesus is our brother. He is the high priest. He was put over all of us as the head. We are the vine. That means God is in all of us!
*Human Doctrines—The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.—1 Timothy 4:1-5
NOTES: This is a very clear description of false doctrines and false prophets. Hello! Earth to Mars! The Roman Catholic Church is one of them. They will fall. The Vatican will burn and there will be no more popes (men who think they are God). The Catholic Church is the worse of them all. It is pure evil. What makes it evil? Oh, the list is long. Let’s start with their bank account. Do you know they are the richest entity on Earth? You can’t make money off of Jesus and God. Nope! Not allowed! And yet, the Roman Catholic Church has how much money? And there are starving people in this world. And yet, the Roman Catholic Church has millions and millions of dollars in fancy clothing for their clergy, and how many clergy is that world wide? And there are people without proper clothing all over the world. And yet, the Roman Catholic Church has billions and billions of dollars worth of fancy buildings all over the world…have you gone into one of those fancy churches…all that wood and brick and all those statues (idols!) and how many churches and gigantic buildings with all those fancy stained glass windows do they actually own world wide? And yet there are people with NO homes, NO beds, NO showers, NO drinking water, all over the world!
That is only the start. The Catholic church killed how many people in the name of GOD? Oh, they were the ones who actually tortured Jesus the Christ and hammered the nails into His body! How many women did they deem witches all in the name of God and then killed them? They did the same thing to Jesus the Christ only to use His name later to build an empire! How many boys did they rape since they began? How many? How many people did they rape and murder in order to hide their dark secrets? How many? They didn’t just pillage Jesus on the outside! How many boys did they lie to and tell them that their rape is an initiation into the altar boy society and that it’s what God wants? The Catholic Church is Satan’s play ground! They forbid their priests to marry, so they rape boys and girls world wide. They tell their followers that they have to sustain from meat on Fridays during a certain time of year. Wrong answer! They tell their followers that they are sinners if they eat this or eat that. They make their followers feel guilty…the bad shepherds! They bring their followers down to sinners more than they were before they entered their churches…the bad shepherds!
Oh then there is Islam! They actually believe and tell their people that if they put a bomb on their body and blow themselves up while killing in the name of God that they will be blessed in the after life with 7 virgins to fuck! They believe in pleasure marriages. Oh, this is so not of God. They can have a marriage for a day, so they can screw a little girl in the butt! And their clergy are giving them the paperwork, or doing it over the phone by word of mouth! Everyone knows. It’s not a secret. And if the man gets too excited and penetrates the girl’s vagina, her family gets to kill her to protect their status in the community! That is just the beginning of Islam’s sins! To the pit. They are Satan! They do as the Catholics do, make their followers feel guilty, so they kill, cut off limbs, kill themselves, rape, murder…bad shepherds!
And that is the two largest. The rest of the man-made churches…all their money! Of the world. They are not of God. You do not have to fast to be close to Jesus or God. Hello! You do not need to give all your money to some preacher on T.V. because they made you feel guilty! They are bad shepherds. God will take care of them. His wrath is coming to all of them! I’m not preaching anything here. I’m telling you the truth. The world’s churches are in with the governments. It is all about control. You do not need them to live right. You have your mind, your heart, and your Bible. Gifts from God Himself! And it’s time that you begin to use them!
Instructions to Timothy
Strive For Godliness—If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, brought up in the truths of the faith and of the good teachings that you have followed. Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance (and for this we labor and strive), that we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, and especially of those who believe.—1 Timothy 4:6-10
NOTES: During my out loud reading of the New Testament, as was instructed on August 21, 2019, I finished reading this passage at 12:00 A.M. I wrote in between this passage and the following: It has begun!
If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, brought up in the truths of the faith and of the good teachings that you have followed…But the people won’t like you. They will betray you and hate you. They will turn and go to extremes. They won’t see the subtle way of doing things. They will criticize you. All because greed and lust are far better ways in their experience, then the thought of a true after life, which does exist, which IS!
Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly…Can you tell the difference? Most can’t. If I say fuck you, but live a good life…you would still call me crazy or not healed. If I say fuck you and God in the same sentence, you would judge me quicker than someone who has molested a child. That’s not a joke. I’ve witnessed this! It is real.
Most people are quick to judge and not think about what they are saying because it fits with the crowd. A lot will judge because they aren’t healed, and what the prophets tell them go against what they know, or what they are conditioned to know. Like it is WRONG to have sex with an under-aged girl!…a girl below 15 years of age. In America, below 17 years of age is statutory rape. Did you know that? But since so many want this…they want to have sex with little girls, they don’t say anything! That’s just fact. You can spew up your nose all you want. It IS fact!
Here’s another piece of fact: Most adults know of someone who has raped a child and they know them personally, so they don’t say anything because society teaches you NOT to sound the horn because you’ll get that person in trouble or the clique will turn their nose up at you. Oh, well! God wants ALL to HEAL! So unless you SOUND that horn and get it all out in the open, NO ONE HEALS! And that does NOT sit well with GOD!
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come…I’m currently getting back into shape. I had to put my meditation aside for a while, and each time I request to go back in, I’m denied. ‘You’re too powerful,’ I’m told. So, I have to wait until I’m moved from here. I got time, so I added physical exercise to my prayer and writing. Oh, you won’t see me go a day without prayer. David draws me in…he gives me no choice sometimes. Then, other times, I’m sitting there and he ask, ‘Do you want to pray?’ I blush sometimes at this because the spiritual world is asking me if I want to pray! I’m like inside, ‘Hell yeah!’ Outside, ‘Yes.’ I should know better because the spiritual world knows our thoughts before we do, so it doesn’t matter they already know!
Meditation. This is very important. I’ve said this before and I’ll keep saying it: God says so many times in His book, ‘Rest in Me.’ Do you know how to do that? Do you know how to rest in God? Meditation. And no chanting. Zero! I use a boxed fan to keep my mind from wondering. I concentrate on the hum of the fan until that hum disappears. Every time my mind wonders…I start thinking about things…I pull myself back to the fan. It gets easier and easier. For me, from July until late September…almost every day…for hours at a time. Now, David pulls me OUT because it’s easy for me to get to my zone without even trying hard.
When you learn to move with your mind, through space, you connect with the Holy Spirit. This is how you hear Jesus and God, and meet your spirit guide. This isn’t a joke. This is real. This is what so many gurus have been trying to prevent. Remember that evil whore the devil doesn’t want what God wants. It will fight you every step of the way. When I first went into mediation, I didn’t know what the hell was happening. I looked it up on the net. Of course, I’m a bit different, so I freaked out big time. My experience is not like anything I’ve read on the net! So it scared me a bit. Then David and Jesus sent me signs proving it was them. All of this is under God’s Mercy.
To calm yourself. To truly be one with the spiritual world, you need to meet your spirit guide. We all have one. This is when you learn that ALL things come from God. He’s ALL energy. He’s space and earth and everything in between. Things really start to make sense after you learn the truth in this.
This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance (and for this we labor and strive), that we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men…This is what Paul means in this statement…what I said in the above paragraphs.
*Teaching and Example—Command and teach these things. Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public readings of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.—1 Timothy 4:11-16
NOTES: Do not neglect your gift…is always important. And even though Paul is writing a letter to Timothy and he’s speaking to him, it was included in God’s book and every word, every number, every phrase was included in this book for a reason. A very good reason: A message to us from God Himself in any age of time.
Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress…This is interesting because I fully understand the process of God. He’s saying to not be ashamed of your journey to the darkness and reveal your steps to surviving and then help others. This is what Jesus meant by the VINE! God always said that He never liked secrets or what is hidden in the dark. He made this clear before Jesus came, then through Jesus, He made it clear again. I have zero idea why this is so hard for people to comprehend. Get it out! Talk about it! Heal! Then help others! It’s hard on the personal level, but it IS really that simple! And, guess what, that is LOVE!
And to further reiterate what He meant, He says through Paul: Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. There you go. Persevere is a big thing with God. He wants you healed. He wants you to succeed. The only deal is that your idea of succeeding is very different from His. And guess what: His matters more than yours! Then He says that your primary objective is to save your soul and when you share your story, you help save other souls! Isn’t that something!
How to Treat Others—Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.—1 Timothy 5:1,2
NOTES: This is just about pure respect. I haven’t seen much of it lately! Children being pillaged is the main sign that the cycle is changing. Disrespect is another. I would take heed in the warnings. He did say that towards the end, more people will get visions and messages and will prophesy; more people will live the way of the world, than the way of God. We are getting close. I assure you. We are.
