Matthew 5:41-44
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Matthew 18:9
9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
Luke 18:18-19
18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

🚸”Sign-Language of Jonah”
“Experiencing the Need for God”✋️👋🤝
When I experience the emotional tumult of a quiet, internal state of distress, this is as much a sin as any overt display of temper. One way to resolve this discomfiture is to reinterpret my feelings, as being merely evidence of my need for God. In refraining from judging myself for my natural human pitfalls, I resort to a state of “contrition.”

“Road of Contrition”🙏
I view my sins of thinking and my emotional reactions to life’s stressors as absolutely vital to my experience of life. Only by seeing my “sin,” which is perhaps better defined as the subjective sense of a lack of control, unmanageability, or an inability and powerlessness to adequately cope or help myself in some way or another, am I ever confronted head-on with my own state of “need.” Only through my sense of personal sin, or knowledge of my human inadequacies and guilt over somehow not being able to measure up, is this need for God, and His supreme perfection and innate ability to meet and live up to my every need, ever realized. Therefore, only by first realizing this need, via plummeting to the depths of my own futility and despair in attempting to fill the need of God’s Own divine provision, may it ever actually be met. My need is seen and acknowledged, and consequently, fulfilled by God. I may only know God through first knowing of sin. The path by which my sin reconciles me into the loving Hands and safekeeping of God, is through contrition.
🖖
“Truth, Grace, Glory”🔥💦🌈
When I repent of my sinful state, as mourning over my powerlessness to help myself, or feeling guilt from my inherent human hatefulness or wretched emotional reactions, I experience an honest sense of “need.” In recognizing human sin as merely being evidence of need, as my need for God, I conceive of my human condition truthfully, as in light of God’s role of being either vacant or filled in my life.

“Of Humble Merit”💧
Upon first experiencing sin or any sort of human emotional uneasiness, the correct path is then to understand contrition. Only by accepting my inherent weakness is my veritable need for God ever fully revealed to me, as by my own first-hand personal experience. Thus, sin, and then contrition, as evidencing my need for God’s help and saving grace, are absolutely vital along the path to redemption from life’s evils. The point at which I avail myself to the grace of God is the point at which He will start to appear, in a miracle, or “mysterious mays.” I, as a mere human, am not God, and am therefore incapable of being good without God. My only source of merit in this world is, in fact, the act of contrition, or humble penitence for my inherently sinful human nature and my powerlessness to be good of my own self. Only humble contrition puts me in proper standing before God. This honesty and contrition is the means by which God will relieve me of my sin, or my bondage to the law of the flesh, and make His presence known within my soul.

“A Complementary Action”🥀🌹
The divinity of God Himself bestows the solution to any problem I may encounter, but only after the fact of my first being confronted with an obstacle. This process of coming to terms with my real station in life, of being faced with challenges that I cannot overcome by my own power alone, is necessary so that I may discover my need for God. As part of discovering my need for God, He will then step in to fulfill that need, which is only ever recognized in all truth and honesty under the most dire of circumstances. Having this “true need” discovered, and then filled by God’s loving presence, is the sweetest joy in life. Only in being forsaken by the world am I made ready to avail myself of the Lord and His divine intervention, and so earthly pitfalls and obstacles are part of the process of being shepherded into His heavenly flock.

“Flock of White Doves”🕊🕊🕊
God Himself is the only thing in this life that I ever actually need, and so the less I come to rely upon worldly satisfactions, the more thoroughly I am truly satisfied. Only God Himself can fill the need that He Himself bore into me as His Own creation. This sin, or need, manifested as human shortcomings in a variety of forms, is truly a blessing, because without it I would not have the occasion or means by which to grow to seek, depend upon, and know God. Developing a relationship with God, through learning to trust in and rely upon Him, is actually the only true meaning of Life. In this way, any part of life wherein I am confronted with this need for God, is, by His Own design, an act of Providence, as the grace necessary so that I may receive that which I truly need; “just God.”
👑
💛”Eucharistic and Substantial”
Only God will ever sustain me reliably and eternally, and in being denied the fleeting pleasures of the world, or the earthly or sinful desires which would ultimately destroy me, only then do I know God. God exists fundamentally through spirituality, rather than through earthly-fated, as temporal or material, means. Thus, only through earthly defeat, and facing my own distress or inability, am I ever truly saved, as being quickened by the Spirit into the eternal substance of the soul, and so prepared for God’s Own will for me, which is to live forever in the Kingdom of Heaven.

“A Human Display of Affection”🌬💋💠
Upon expressing contrition, or my need for God’s help, I will grow to experience the bliss of honesty before God, and His Truth. His grace will work its way in as I begin to prime and prepare myself for it. Grace is best understood as sharing the same nature, or qualitative experience, as gratitude. This grace is the restoration of my Spirit and a renewed appreciation for Life, which is conferred by God as He fills in my sense of need, first by honesty, and then by grace. God will occupy the need, or the position He designed for Himself within my soul, in order to become my Savior, and ensure the ultimate survival of my soul. God makes His presence in my life necessary so that I will seek Him, as only His will, or guidance, is able to herd me into His eternal Kingdom of Heaven.

“Be Held and Behold in Wonder”🦋✨
My own sin and my own resultant welling up of repentant emotion, harnessed as grace through contrition, is the only path to God’s eternal Life, which is only ever bestowed by Him directly. God redeems us from our sins as a spectacular show of the great depths of His perfect will, which is to love, to save, to care and to protect. Our sins allow us to reject our mortal limitations and to behold and receive the unending and unparalleled glory of God. The pinnacle of the human experience is merely, with humility and pious reverence, to watch in awestruck wonder, as the Father demonstrates His unsurpassed powers as miraculous displays of love and affection, intended as a gift for us to behold in a state of rapture, and in turn to hold dearly, as marvelous in our Eyes💠.

🏮Becoming a Vessel of God:😘
I do nothing of my own volition, but merely serve and carry out the will of the Father. Of myself I am nothing, but am just an apparatus, instrument, and utensil, of God.

Sin is simply evidence of the innate human need for God, and contrition is the vehicle by which that need is attained, via grace.

2 Corinthians 5:1-17
5 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4 For we that are in thistabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (for we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 we are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences. 12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart. 13 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause. 14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 and that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Matthew 18:7-22
7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast themfrom thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? 13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Matthew 5:13-20; 27-30; 38-48
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28 but I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. 29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not thatthy whole body should be cast into hell.
38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 but I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Luke 18:9-14; 18-19
9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

Matthew 7
7 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? 12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide isthe gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Acts 9:3-9; 15-18
3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: 4 and he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord saidunto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. 7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. 8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. 9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: 16 for I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.
17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, evenJesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. 18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

Galatians 4:12-20; 29-31
12 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all. 13 Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first. 14 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. 15 Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me. 16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? 17 They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them. 18 But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you. 19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, 20 I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.
29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it isnow. 30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. 31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

💸“Quod Me Nutrit Me Destruit:”💪
“That Which Nourishes Me Destroys Me”
(By Christopher Marlowe)
Of course, Faustus in his pride nonetheless completes the deal. But before we dismiss him too quickly, we do well to remember all the little ways in which we ourselves are Faustuses. We all — Christian or not — make our own deals with the devil in pursuit of “frivolous demands.” As the philosopher Boethius observed in The Consolation of Philosophy (a book with which Marlowe was certainly familiar), every time our arrogance, our pride, and our ambition lead us to elevate the legitimate goods of earthly life, we risk forsaking the highest Good of God. Or, as C. S. Lewis put it in “The Weight of Glory,”
[I]f we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us… We are far too easily pleased. (26)
When we, like Faustus, seek after “drink and sex and ambition” as our ends, that which nourishes us becomes that which destroys us. Whatever the details of Christopher Marlowe’s life, it was clearly a maxim he knew well. It is a theme he wove into the structure of Doctor Faustus, a play we can still read with approval today. For whether we want to admit it to ourselves or not, every one of us at times looks as foolish as Faustus, pleasing ourselves with trifles and seeking nourishment in the poisons of the world when eternal happiness could be ours.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

“Counterintuitive Counterintelligence:”
…Just know that, “you don’t know.”😘

“In order to trust in God!”
(Awe!)😻

“Follow the Leader”🥁
I must strive to let God and Jesus precede me in all that I do, and this ensures my ultimate arrival upon fulfillment of God’s will, whatever that may be. I seek to practice my faith by resisting the urge to ask questions or to lean upon any sort or sense of reason to explain my path in Life. The sure-footedness provided by virtuosic intentions aligns my own will to that of our Heavenly Father, and in this way, through upholding virtue while simultaneously detaching from earthly fixations or sinful self-interest, I may effectively clear the path by which I may harness direct contact with God. In using my focus as a machete, I may selectively latch onto God, and maintain a clear channel and a smooth flow within my soul wherein I may follow my intuition, or my understanding of Him, which is bestowed only via a clean conscience. I carefully construct a solid foundation for the temple of my soul, by cultivating and enhancing my virtues and purity of mind, through which innocence of motive, I grow to know God and Jesus.

“In the Shadow of the Most High”🗽⛅️
I follow God and Jesus directly, forging ahead only ever to Them and not to any other action or the path of Life itself. In placing my understanding of God first, instead of my knowledge of self, I am led by the true Guide and Shepherd, and so cannot veer off-course or go astray. My constant contact with God is my path in this Life, and wherever He and Jesus wish to lead me is where I am headed. My goal, properly formulated, is a relationship with God, and I let nothing come between Us. I remain secure and firmly rooted in God by my diligent obedience, faith, and loyalty, to always defer to His will instead of mine. I lay the groundwork for God by uprooting my soul from self-will and upholding selfless virtuosity instead, to the utmost of my ability. In this way, through grafting my will unto God’s eternal spiritual virtues, a great depth of loving admiration and a vast reservoir of longanimity is provided to fuel all my endeavors, which is made possible only by tapping into that same goodwill of God. Through God, all things are possible.

“Moveable Invisible Feast”💋
The virtues are the fuel and force of God, as goodly motivations, and are reasons for engaging in any thought or behavior that are good in and of themselves, without needing any further reason or qualification to be worthy pursuits. In facing a fear or a challenge simply because it would be courageous and prudent to do so, the resultant effects of attempting that feat are rendered moot and irrelevant. One’s heart was in the right place in determining and persevering in that course of action, as to pursue virtuosic activity, and so regardless of success or failure, such action is always deemed inherently worthy, or righteous and worthwhile, by God. In performing a cost-benefit analysis to dictate a path, however, one would not be acting based upon virtue, but upon self-interest. In this regard, one must let go of earthly, or worldly and profitable motives, in order to act according to virtue, which dictates selflessness and altruism as the true ideals worthy of pursuing, and the real pinnacle of any human achievement.

“Lost Boys Found”📍🗺
In following after God and Jesus, I strive to think Their thoughts after Them, and reside within the shadow of the Most High, created only by my own patience and willingness to linger under Their wing. I am a subordinate within Their guidance and direction, and this sequence of my Life’s path ensures that I will never be led astray by my human and inherently faulty and wayward, or sinful and erring, nature. Necessary for God’s protection is the ability and willingness, or patience, to wait for Him to take the lead and settle into the forefront of my mind, to replace that position otherwise occupied by the laws of man, or a profit-motive, wrought of the sinful human intellect of worldly reasoning.

“Tick Tock! ⏰…The Celestial Kindling”
As I allow my reliance upon self-interest, or a preoccupation with deriving selfish and personal benefits, to slip away, by replacing that sinful drive of self-will or the ego with altruistic selfless virtues for my motivational drive, my heart thus becomes fueled by the Spirit, and becomes One and the same as God, through Our shared Source of motivation. The kindling of divine love is the core essence of the virtues, and so too of God’s Own eternal will. In partaking of this shared Source of fuel for our Lifeblood, We are powered by eternity itself, which is the undying flame of the sacrificial and altruistic love of God.

“One Bleating Heart-Felt Tipped Pen”❣️
With the proper orientation, as of the will to be motivated by virtue, kindness, love, and goodwill, then God’s Own will of that same spiritual and eternal force of loving energy, starts pumping through me. In this vehicle of my soul, this blood vessel of self-sacrificing Paschal love, God’s will may flow freely, coursing through my veins without limit or measure, as unhindered by any selfish snags and snares of the ego. In achieving a singleness of Spirit and unity of purpose or vision with God, We may Together create an endless stream of love, goodness, and compassion wherever I may go and in all that I may do. Through Our ongoing interaction and interchange of heartfelt sentiments of devotion, We constantly renew and refresh this divine circulation of heavenly love and aether.

“For St. Peter Pan’s Sake…”😇
In resisting the idea of logically explaining a reason for the worthiness of any of my actions, I may instead practice the virtues. Virtues are qualities or motivations that are ends in and of themselves, and in letting go of any other reason for choosing a certain path, as by formulating a logical explication, I may instead come to rely upon the simplicity of faith, which requires that I must not have knowledge of a logical reason. If I knew by fact, then I could not learn to know by faith. In letting go of reliance upon my own knowledge and intellect, or my own personal repository of information and logical argumentation, I may allow God to supercede this faculty.

“Pixie Dust in my Crow’s Nest”🦅
Thus, in letting go of my trust upon faulty, limited, human sources of dependence, I must practice the qualities of virtue to fill the gap, and form a bridge for God within my soul. Practicing the virtues creates a foothold in my soul wherein God Himself can take root and establish His footing. In practicing the virtues, as qualities such as courage, persistence, kindness, patience, tolerance, truth, justice, and forbearance, I step onto the solid footing of spiritual ground, trusting upon eternal substance.

“Imprinting in the Mothership”🐣
The reason, or motivation, for any of my actions will determine the nature, or quality and value, of my soul. When my reasons or intentions for actions are material or corporeal in nature, then my soul imprints upon these worldly qualities. Conversely, when I imprint upon my desire for God, or a selfless quality of character and the altruistic goodness of virtue, as my motivating factor, then this same eternal spiritual substance becomes rooted in my soul. As my soul imprints upon earthly desires, it correspondingly becomes valued as the same fate of the flesh, in becoming congruent in worth to mere dust and ash. However, when I detach from earthly fixations, or selfish wants, desires, motives, and occupations, to instead practice strengths of character as the reasons for any of my strivings or workings, then my soul takes root in the eternal nature of these pious qualities. Virtues are of spiritual substance, which is fundamentally timeless and eternal. Thus, when I imprint my inclinations upon the gifts and the fruit of the Holy Spirit, my soul becomes grafted unto God’s eternity.

“Dove-In: Reap and Sew Up”🏰🕊
Only in letting go of a better reason to pursue a certain task than that, “it would please the Lord,” as based upon my knowledge of the Commandments, the teachings of the Gospel, and the eternal virtues as benchmarks of goodness, may I come to transplant my soul unto God’s eternal provisions for me, in Heaven.

Ephesians 5Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
5 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2 and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. 3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

Matthew 6:19-23; 30-34
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Luke 16:7-17
7 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore. 8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. 9 And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations. 10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. 11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? 12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. 15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. 16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. 17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11; 16-24
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do
16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19 Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

2 Corinthians 3:2-6; 12-18
2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: 3 forasmuch as ye aremanifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. 4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: 5 not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; 6 who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: 13 and not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: 14 but their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. 16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. 17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there isliberty. 18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Galatians 5:5-18; 22-26
5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. 7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? 8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. 9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. 10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be. 11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased. 12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Romans 8:14-25; 36-39
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be comparedwith the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, thendo we with patience wait for it.
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

✝️”Cross of Saint Peter”🙃
(What’d you think? What a filthy mind, lol!)
The origin of the symbol comes from the Catholic tradition that Simon Peter was crucified upside down, as told by Origen of Alexandria. The tradition first appears in the “Martyrdom of Peter”, a fragmented text found in, but possibly predating, the apocryphal Acts of Peter, which was written no later than 200 A.D. It is believed that Peter requested this form of crucifixion as he felt he was unworthy to be crucified in the same manner that Jesus died. As such, some Catholics use this cross as a symbol of humility and unworthiness in comparison to Jesus.

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow,and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

Praying after Righteousness…

“Test of Solomon:💎Never Says No”⚖️
The best way to seek recourse to the provisions of any Man, may well be only indirectly, in certain tough cases. When a tough, masculine heart might uphold justice at all costs, the tender mercy of maternal love may offer the best solution.

“Holy Family Ties”👔🎀🛤
A true mother never denies a child any favor or true goodness in life, no matter the extent of any “prodigal” deviation. In making a prayerful supplication to the mother, she may then take that sinner’s appeal to the Father and Son, who will not deny the request of the wife and mother. In this way, all righteous prayers can be answered, as petitions made to the mother will be fulfilled when she brings them to the Father, Who will not say no to His wife. Denial of a goodly fate may be proper and just for the wicked-hearted, but when a goodly Spirit requests salvation on their behalf, issuing justice for this will to love, by fulfilling this righteous prayer, ultimately takes precedence over issuing justice against sin and wrongdoing. The Father cannot deny the issuing of justice to one seeking to uphold His Own ideals of love, which are of primary importance, and so will serve the intention, or will and desire, that His unconditional love be dispersed and distributed amongst all sinners, to answer, in like manner, to the will to love.

“Tye Binds: Answer in Kind”🎈⛓🚢
The will to love always “trumps,” and is always answered to ahead of any other form of recompense. In this way, the Father may shower love justly, upon all His Spirit’s inclinations to spread love upon sinful children, without violating His law of the virtue of equality, or justice. When the mother “insists upon” the safety of “all” her children, and the Father insists upon granting the wishes of the mother, all of creation is joined in holy Unity, as One. Only through this division of power within the the Family of the holy Trinity can such collaboration and cooperation ensure, not only that God’s perfect will of virtue and justice is upheld, but also that all of us are saved and sanctified by His tender mercy.

🌳”3 Branches of Jesse”💙❤️💛
God and Jesus give unto the Spirit without mete or measure, and would not say no to the prayers for salvation urged upon them by the wife and mother of this Church. Thus, in praying for grace and salvation from Mother Mary, one may be assured of receiving that divine mercy. Our holy mother of mercy will never say no to any child, and Jesus will never say no to His mother, even when He just might say no to a deviant or defiant child directly, for the sake of learning strength through tough love and the holy discipline of “the rod.” In this way, the holy Trinity makes adaptive use of a system of “checks and balances,” or the “division of power,” as likened unto the 3 branches of American government.

“Balancing Acts:☂️Mercy over🌂Justice”
This division of labor, and even, equitable distribution of power, within the Trinity, safeguards against a bias of virtue from any particular Personage of God, as Each has a specialization to fulfill a specific role or purpose. This system of 3 branches protects each and every member of the Church against ever being left behind, even in the wake of great, indelible sins or offenses. Whenever Justice might rule with a heavy hand, compassion will step in as a safety net, to restore balance and order. This sharing of the responsibilities of God allows for a shifting of the various elements circulating within God’s will, to preserve a state of “hypostasis,” or the homeostasis, of the entire Organism and equalize the complementary forces of the various virtues to create a harmonious existence for all members of the Universe.

“Safeguard of the Corps”🚁
The mother will simply never say no, and she will never allow any child to be left behind or compromised. This absolute insistence upon unity is the tie that binds. This designated role, of the Holy Ghost, is the pivotal mechanism of the Godhead unity that prevents any penitent soul from remaining in Purgatory or perishing in Hell. Without the unity of the Spirit in God’s Family, the holy Trinity, the role of the mother of creation would be left vacant, and there would be no safety net of mercy, or maternal compassion, as the love that only the true mother could ever bestow.

“Right Hand-Maid of God”🛎📯
This role of divine mercy at all costs is, on its own, far too compromising of the law of justice, and is the eternal “doormat” of God’s Kingdom. This function of the Spirit, personified by the Ghost, must work in cooperation with the Father by serving as His consort, to maintain balance within the fluctuations of His almighty will. The tenderness of the Godhead’s female force ultimately holds the capacity to issue the last Trump. The Holy Ghost is destined to choose to override the principle of justice dictating our fate through the unique privilege of holding a place of special favor in God’s Eyes. In dwelling within the pinnacle of God’s affections, as His wife, occupying that sweet spot at the utmost peak of His will as unconditional love, this Spirit may serve in the capacity of apportioning out that love, as God’s divine mercy, to all souls. In this way, the Spirit serves as God’s Arm, in making possible the distribution and circulation of the supreme compassion and forgiveness of His will. The last Trump is always destined to prevail, by God, through virtue of being perfect love, as sacrificial charity extended to all of creation, in order to welcome all of God’s creatures back into eternal embrace of His bosom, as the Kingdom of Heaven.

“Finding Nemo Resideo”👠👠🎗
When the Spirit is compromised, then God’s role, of instituting the law of justice and recompense, exists without the release valve that grants access to His mercy. The Spirit sits atop the Triangle to ensure the allowance of God’s grace to all who seek Him by repentance for sins. In this way, the Spirit is specialized for the purposes of allocating God’s love and comfort, acting merely as an appendage of the Father, at the epitome of His perfect will. The supremacy of God’s will is pure, perfect and boundless, eternal love. In exercising uncompromising love, extended to all without exception or condition, this position is absolutely vital for absolution.

“Get Ghost Untangled”💃🏻
If this function is unfulfilled by the Ghost, then souls in Purgatory or Hell have no release valve from the effects of past sins. The Ghost is the same spiritual substance of the soul that allows for recourse to God’s salvation through following the path articulated by Jesus Christ. In availing oneself of this spiritual aspect of human life, one may gain entry to the Kingdom of Heaven. Only through penitence and the ensuing bestowal of God’s divine mercy, for our inherent and unavoidable human sinfulness, is redemption possible. The uppermost branch of this holy Pyramid of the heavenly virtues, which substance comprises God’s will, is the height and pinnacle of that perfect virtue of love.

“A Debunking Bunker”🌬🐳💦
This branch of divine mercy holds the “power of veto” over all other aspects of virtue, in being the most perfect virtue of selfless, charitable love for all, no matter what. This veto is designated to the Spirit in being the wife and Apple of God’s Eye. In this way, the Spirit can never be denied nor rejected of God, and so in occupying the top of the pyramid, it is necessitated that this facet of mercy always wins out. The Ghost is specialized to be pure love, and unconditional, all-encompassing mercy, and was created by God to serve this function for the redemption of man. This structural and functional formation of the Trinity is by God’s own design, and serves important purposes. Justice and truth exist to deter human sin and the injustice of unanswered-for sins that would otherwise result from man taking advantage of perfect love and innocence. The path and guidance of Christ, serves to usher us from the recompense of justice for our sins, and ultimately leads us to the destiny of God’s love. The Spirit is the means by which the Word of Christ lives within our soul, via the heart, the mind, or the conscience, to ensure that all children of God’s creation arrive safely home to Him, and the eternal Kingdom of Heaven.

“Baptized by the Ghost”🔥⛈🌟
The thin line between punishment for our sins and divine mercy, as the unsurpassed peace of the Almighty God, is just one tiny droplet from mother’s milk of compassion.

🍎A Thin Red Line of thread…🍼💦

2 Kings 3:10-15; 23-28
10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. 11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; 12 behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. 13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. 14 And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days. 15 And Solomon awoke; and, behold, it was a dream. And he came to Jerusalem, and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered up burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and made a feast to all his servants.
23 Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living. 24 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. 25 And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other. 26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. 27 Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof. 28 And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.

Matthew 12:18-21; 25-37; 39-42; 47-50
18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. 19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. 20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. 21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: 26 and if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? 27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. 29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. 30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the HolyGhost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by hisfruit. 34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40 for as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. 42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Mark 3:28-30
28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 29 but he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: 30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

Romans 5:1-5; 17-21
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
5 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 by whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 and patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift cameupon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21 that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

📿”Our Lady Undoer of Knots”🎈
To show us the mission granted to the Virgin Mary by Her Son, an artist Johann Melchior Georg Schmittdner painted Mary Undoer of Knots with great grace. Since 1700, His painting has been venerated in the Church of St. Peter in Perlack, Augsburg, Germany. It was originally inspired by a meditation of Saint Irenaeus (Bishop of Lyon and martyred in 202) based on the parallel made by Saint Paul between Adam and Christ. Saint Irenaeus, in turn, made a comparison between Eve and Mary, saying:’Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it’.
“Prayer to Mary, Undoer of Knots”
Virgin Mary, Mother of fair love, Mother who never refuses to come to the aid of a child in need, Mother whose hands never cease to serve your beloved children because they are moved by the divine love and immense mercy that exists in your heart, cast your compassionate eyes upon me and see the snarl of knots that exist in my life.
You know very well how desperate I am, my pain and how I am bound by these knots.
Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted the undoing of the knots in the lives of His children, I entrust into your hands the ribbon of my life.
No one, not even the evil one himself, can take it away from your precious care. In your hands there is no knot that cannot be undone.
Powerful Mother, by your grace and intercessory power with Your Son and My Liberator, Jesus, take into your hands today this knot…I beg you to undo it for the glory of God, once for all, You are my hope.
O my Lady, you are the only consolation God gives me, the fortification of my feeble strength, the enrichment of my destitution and with Christ the freedom from my chains.
Hear my plea.
Keep me, guide me, protect me, o safe refuge!
Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me

*👑This Above All: Anything that is “the Truth,” is the “Word of God.”
😘💙🕊
*The Highest Truth, the Truth of the Most High, is the Unconditional Love of God.💛

*Live and Learn:🙏 Until last year, I had thought a “Vesper” was an Italian scooter.

*Cultural Differences:👩🏻‍💻 For much of my life, I had thought that the expression, “give it the old college try,” meant to give an honest and sincere effort of hard work, and had even described my efforts to employers the workplace by using this exact phrase. It had not occurred to me that phrase might mean “a half-hearted or mediocre effort,” because I had always taken my college work so seriously!

⏱”Time Will Tell…”

“Only Here and Right Now”💋⏳
Mindfulness is restraining from trying to recall and remember everything at once, or thirsting after the vast reservoir of knowledge at my disposal, in favor of instead simply being aware of God, and my surroundings within this moment. Letting go of self-direction of my thinking and offering God my undivided attention, or my will and my mind, to use for His Own purposes, is the serenity of selfless giving that is, in return, God’s greatest gift to me.

(Prelude)🎶
Matthew 6:33-34
33 But seek ye first the kingdom💠 of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Luke 17:20-21
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom💠 of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom💠 of God cometh not with observation: 21 neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom💠 of God is within you.
🎶

“The Kingdom of God”🦄🏰🛡
(Eye Spy…😘)
We all have a “bare minimum of 3 Eyes,” because even if you lose the 1st 2 eyes, the 3rd Eye💠 is permanent, and by divine Providence, transcends all space+Time.
🕶

“Our House is a Pyramid”💭💠💒
The Kingdom of Heaven which Jesus went to prepare for us is accessed internally, through our heart and mind, as our thoughts, our imagination, and the imagery of the “mind’s Eye” as our visual capacity of creative consciousness. This Eye is indwelling within each being, and is the portal to God of the human soul. This soul is each person’s gateway to Heaven, and is accessed through meditation and prayer. Simply an intensity of attention or mental exertion of focus upon “the idea of God” in one’s mind summons up this mental image of the “Eye of Providence.” Sitting and just staring, without shifting or averting one’s gaze away from a single point of focus, for several moments or an extended duration of Time with patience, as looking for God with rapt attention, is sufficient to invoke the image of God’s Eye within, via your mind’s Eye of imagination. This Eye is merely God reflecting to each of us the state of that individual’s soul. If one is of wicked intentions, that Eye will appear as an “Evil Eye,” but conversely, if one is righteous or of goodwill, that one’s Eye will be of “Providence,” and can be consulted for goodly advice and direction.

“Through the Glass Darkly”💙🔦
This Eye is intended for us to use as a mirror, or a looking glass, so that we can observe the goodness or corruption of our heart, and thus make changes to modify our course of life accordingly. This divine reflection offered by Christ is the “soul,” or the conscience, and is that Tabernacle💠, Temple, or House, of God within each being. This is what is meant by the saying of the Scriptures that “the Kingdom of God is within you,” and it has also been referred to as the Rock, a Stone, the Headstone or Cornerstone, God’s Eye, the Eye, and the All-seeing Eye. When one is of wickedness of heart, immoral, or of corrupt motives and intentions, this Eye may accordingly be described as an Evil Eye, the Eye of the devil, a stumbling stone or a stumbling block, a millstone, or simply, as being “of the darkness.” Truth and honesty in one’s doings, and moral uprightness, enlighten the Eye, and allow the Spirit of God and goodness to enter in and expel the evil spirits of human sin.

“Praise of God: Light of the Soul”🖤❣️💛
This Eye is the only way by which one may enter Heaven, and the bliss of that Kingdom may be built up by moral action, deeply felt as rapturous ecstasy by the virtue of hope, or the expectation of God, and then further expanded upon while still here on Earth. God is Here and Now, and may be accessed at any Time, because He is omnipresent and all-powerful! One need not wait until after death to know God, but rather, He appears to all who seek Him, and who are “true of heart,” or who share His goodwill and virtue, with faithfulness and loyalty, through a unity of will or intention, as a singleness of Vision.

“In the Holy+Spirit of Truth”🔺🔻✡️
In this Unity with God’s Own will, or the inclination towards goodness that He shares with us through the Eye of our soul, one may be filled Light, as the Spirit of God. The Light of God is bestowed by truth and virtue, and upright living. If one lives according to sin, as following after the laws of man and the flesh, as pride, lust, envy, greed, or hatred, then one’s Eye is thus darkened, and one has no recourse to the repose within God’s Temple and the unsurpassed peace of the Most High God.

“Find Alice:🦋Through the Hourglass”💘
Any ill-will, wrongdoing, evil intent, or immorality and corruption, for instance deceit, can darken or close one’s Eye. However, of one refers to this reflection of the Eye and makes the called-for corrections to one’s actions, the Eye will then be filled with Light, and this gateway, or door, to God’s Kingdom, will open correspondingly. There is no way to keep it open or shut with any single action, but rather, it reflects one’s ongoing path through life. The state of one’s soul changes with each step that one takes, either in thought or action, and the Eye changes accordingly to reflect this, in congruence with any changes in behavior, corrections implemented, transgressions committed, or advancement made, be it towards God or away from God. The gate or Eye of the soul and our connection to God will always reopen in accord with His forgiveness ensuing any repentance, to the extent that one is willing to abide by God’s goodness, and follow after His will.
🎩
💙”Welcome to Wonderland”
This Eye is the Word of God inscribed in our hearts, and as the inborn human soul, or conscience, placed as a “frontlet over our eyes” by God our Maker, it is each person’s individual “Book of Life.” This blank slate, for God’s Word to exist within one’s heart, as one’s Eye, is to be written upon with love through living according to God’s will of goodness and virtue. Rightly living and goodly intentions during this lifetime imprint that same Word of love, or God’s will, upon the eternal Eye, as the place reserved for that one in the afterlife and eternity of God’s Kingdom of Heaven. In laying up the treasures of virtue and the fruit of the Holy Spirit within one’s soul, one may secure those same treasures, of God’s eternal fruit, within this Eye of the soul, as being like unto an eternal repository, or a safe-box and coffer, of eternally-persisting treasure. The Eye, or the human soul, is priceless in serving that purpose, of being the storehouse and that very same Tabernacle, Temple, House, or Mansion, that Jesus makes room for ahead of us, secured as our own special place, in God’s Kingdom of Heaven. This Mansion is secured for us to the extent that we live in it while here on Earth, filling the Eye with the eternal substance of the Spirit, as the virtues, accumulating merit, or value and worth, only through abiding by God’s will of love and righteousness.

“Follow the Lily-White Rabbit”🐇👁‍🗨🕳
The articulations of the living Word, or the Eye that is the reflection of your heart, are directly from Christ Himself. In following the path of Christ, through actually heeding and obeying the Commandments and the teachings of love and tolerance expounded upon in the Gospel, one may secure a prosperous position in Heaven.
👑
💠”Cheshires in Heaven”🌟
The “Holy Spirit,” in a sense, will activate the Voice of God and the verbal guidance of the living Word within this Eye, as by blowing upon it, or directing one’s breath up towards and through it at a 45 degree angle, He will speak to you, and welcome the verbal discourse and interaction of a relationship through “communion,” or “communicating a path for you to follow,” in order to be acceptable in God’s sight.

Matthew 6:19-23; 29-34
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye💠: if therefore thine eye💠 be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye🕳 be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
29 and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom💠 of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I amin the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me💠, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me💠: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

18 The Lord hath chastened me sore:
but he hath not given me over unto death.
19 Open to me the gates💠 of righteousness:
I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord:
20 this gate💠 of the Lord,
into which the righteous shall enter.
21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me,
and art become my salvation.
22 The stone💠 which the builders refused
is become the head stone💠 of the corner.
23 This is the Lord’s doing;
it is marvellous in our eyes💠.
24 This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord:
O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
we have blessed you out of the house💠 of the Lord.
27 God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light:
bind the sacrifice with cords, evenunto the horns of the altar.
28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee:
thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
29 O give thanks unto the Lord;
for he is good:
for his mercy endureth for ever.

Proverbs 15:22-33
22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed:
    but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth:
    and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!
24 The way of life is above to the wise,
    that he may depart from hell beneath.
25 The Lord will destroy the house of the proud:
    but he will establish the border of the widow.
26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord:
    but the words of the pure arepleasant words.
27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house;
    but he that hateth gifts shall live.
28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answer:
    but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.
29 The Lord is far from the wicked:
    but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
30 The light of the eyes💠 rejoiceth the heart:
    and a good report maketh the bones fat.
31 The ear that heareth the reproof of life
    abideth among the wise.
32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul:
    but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom;
    and before honour is humility.

“The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”💔❣️
By Samuel Taylor Coleridge
(…Just the Ending…❤️)🕊
…What loud uproar bursts from that door!
The wedding-guests are there:
But in the garden-bower the bride
And bride-maids singing are:
And hark the little vesper bell,
Which biddeth me to prayer!

O Wedding-Guest! this soul hath been
Alone on a wide wide sea:
So lonely ’twas, that God himself
Scarce seemèd there to be.

O sweeter than the marriage-feast,
‘Tis sweeter far to me,
To walk together to the kirk
With a goodly company!—

To walk together to the kirk,
And all together pray,
While each to his great Father bends,
Old men, and babes, and loving friends
And youths and maidens gay!

Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.

The Mariner, whose eye is bright,
Whose beard with age is hoar,
Is gone: and now the Wedding-Guest
Turned from the bridegroom’s door.

He went like one that hath been stunned,
And is of sense forlorn: 🥀
A sadder and a wiser man,
He rose the morrow morn.🌹

“Be Sorry, but Don’t Stay Sorry”🏹💘
Whatever it takes to foster the conscience, which is the knowledge of God Himself within one’s soul, is in itself, despite the fleeting grief and pain, the very cornerstone of true and lasting happiness, and a gift from divine Providence. This lesson is the Path and the grace of God.

💠”The Holy Ghost is no Villainess”🕊
If one’s Eye is evil or in Hell, a common error that would cause this would be the blasphemy or slander of the Holy Ghost. It would be unreasonable for God to love one who acts hatefully towards His wife, and His Own source of love and affection. There is simply nothing further that one could possibly do to make God happy, nor to find favor in His Eyes💠, if one hates the Holy Spirit, and in this way, blasphemy against the Holy Ghost isolates one from God, and so is the “only unforgivable sin.” The Spirit herself, however, can choose to forgive this sin and reestablish her Unity. Repentance, and “cleaning house,” by refraining from sinful ways of the past, and taking responsibility for one’s past wrongs, ushers in “Christ,” as the “upright Path” for reestablishing a foundation of God’s Light and love within the soul. This love for God and the acceptance of His love for us is the keystone by which one may build, of the faith that is as solid as Rock, the soul and archway of a Temple in God’s Heaven.

(Prelude)🎶
Acts 16:25-26
25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. 26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

💖”Grace is a Gift”🌈
…See the future, or live the “Present.”

⌛️”Shifting the Sand of Time”⏳
The Present🎁: A shift from the temporal perspective to which I am fixated upon, to within this moment of “as I am now,” is peace and serenity. This paradigm shift from the future to the present allows one to exist in Time where desires are reached, instead of where they will always be yet to be fulfilled, as existing only via projection to the future, and essentially nonexistent. Any satisfaction that is to be fulfilled only by arrival upon a point in the future is destined to always remain unknown, as only the present Time ever actually exists.

“Within the Rapping Paper”💝
In living outside the present, one is, in essence, not actually existing. In dwelling in thoughts of the future, one is not living in such a way that true fulfillment of life’s potential, or realizing the deepest meaning to being alive, is possible, because all that exists, fulfillment and happiness included, is only ever real, or existent, in the present.

“Prepared a Pace: All Ready Here”💘
A future-orientation is comprised of unmet desires and wants, and arises out of a fixation upon that which is lacking and as of yet unknown as the effect of the natural human tendency to act based upon desire, greed, covetousness, and sinful pleasure seeking, as drives of the reward system. This pitfall, or mire and effect of sin, is self-perpetuating, as the desire and the want are always for that which only exists in the future. In this way, by allowing the fruit of one’s desire to be of the future, one develops a future-orientation towards living, never really being present, and so the innate fulfillment of residing within the present, is never known. In this way, by living after one’s desires, one never knows satisfaction. In living after appreciation of what is now rather than what will be, one is cognizant of life’s blessings and joys through the quality of gratitude, which is what bestows this grace in the first place.

“Thank You, thank You, thank You!…”✨

“Eternity: Alpha and Omega”💞
Time, or the temporal aspect of existence, fundamentally always takes precedence in all matters of physics and human nature. Thus, if one is attached to some desire that is contingent upon a future point in Time to be satisfied, or that exists only in the future, then that desire fixation, as this “future-orientation” that fastens one’s mindset in place to a distant point in Time, becomes one’s source of unfulfillment. This fixation upon the future, in being Time-based or temporal in nature, is far more powerful than any other hold upon us that can be had within existence, and so this future-based fixation of focus, or object of our desires, persists long after a planned for desire is fulfilled; one’s want is satisfied, but the craving lingers because one’s mindframe, or the location of one’s thoughts and being, is not in the present.

“Σ+ First and Last: God is Sovereign…”⏱

“Rapt Attention and Rapture”💔❣️❤️
If one’s mindstate, or the focus of one’s mental absorption, exists outside this present point in Time, then so does the satisfaction of one’s wants and desires, whether those determined wants are ever actually attained or not. Thus, with a future-based state of mind, when the fulfillment of a want finally arrives, it is still not known, and is unable to be processed, because it may only ever actually be received, or recognized and felt, if one’s attention lingers within this present moment in Time. As long as one’s desire is for something that exists outside the moment, or that is not presently had, as something that is not accessible except at a future point in Time, then the fulfillment of that desire will correspondingly also always exist outside the present point in Time. Once that future point arrives, it then becomes the present, and so to know what it means to have a desire met at that point, one must learn how to stay in the present. This ability to abide, is patience. As the designated Time wherein a want would be fulfilled is approached, that point is reached, but the mindset is still future-oriented, and so it’s fulfillment is unable to be savored and truly absorbed for it’s joy.

“Patience is the salvation of the Saints.”😇

“Unwrapped and Unfurled”🏁🏴🏳
Even upon arrival at that “present point in the future,” the sense of attainment will remain out of reach, because one’s mind is still set to reach beyond the moment. As the future moment is met, the mind still races further ahead, and so at no point in Time does a “present moment” ever arrive. In this way, through a mindset based upon desiring future satisfactions, at no Time does one ever actually exist in the present. Only in this present moment can any joy of attainment ever be known, realized, and truly experienced for bliss. In the hope of discovering joy only after the journey, or through the expectation of meeting desires in the future instead of right now, then never is one truly existing within the present, to actually receive the boon of one’s desire. The gift is only bestowed within this very moment, and this present point in Time. All that could ever possibly satisfy a person, one has necessarily already attained; this is because the “point in Time of the present,” which is the means by which any desire is eventually known and fulfilled, only ever exists as of “right here and right Now.”

“God is my Present”💝⏱🌈
Thus, through living in the present, as the only Time wherein desires may actually be met, one comes to realize that, “one only ever has that which one has already been granted,” as this quality of innate and constant satisfaction preexisting within the moment is the nature of the temporal point of the Present, which is the final sum and culmination, or the peak and pinnacle, of God’s true essence of sublime Eternity. All that will ever exist, can never be more than that which is accessible as of right now, because the Present exists perpetually.

🗒”Lotus: My Lily-White Pad”✒️📖🏳️‍🌈
Only in first developing a present-point-in-Time-orientation, by fastening oneself to this very moment in Time, may one ever know the fulfillment of any desire, because it is only ever experienced in the “Present.”

God is Omnipresent.⏱
“God is Love.”

✝️”…The One with ‘the Little Man’ on It!”
(A Childhood Anecdote)
One of my earliest memories is of being in a gift shop at a restaurant in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, where we would go on family summer vacations during my childhood. My mom pointed to a jewelry case full of little trinkets, and told my sister and I both that we could each select one. I scanned the case briefly, and my eyes immediately alighted upon a strange sight, something I had never seen before, but that delighted me in a way I could not explain. I knew then that I need look no further. “I want the one with the little Man on it!” I exclaimed. “Ok sweetie, but are you sure you don’t want to look at the other charms?” My sister selected a silver conch shell with pink enamel on the inside, and a variety of pelican pendants were pointed out to me. “No, I want the one with the little Man on it!” I was love-struck. I didn’t know what it was, but I knew it was what I wanted. “Why is that little Man on the Cross?” I had never seen a Cross before with Jesus Himself on it. “…Actually, it’s called a Crucifix, my dear.”

✡️”Here, Here: Present!”☦️
I still have my very first Crucifix, bestowed to me as the ultimate gift before I even knew what it was, and before I realized that I was a Catholic instead of Protestant. I had “resurrected” that Crucifix for use on Easter last year, and now, my very first little Man, has developed a tidy following.

Acts 16:13-40
13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither. 14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul. 15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: 17 the same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. 18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, 20 and brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, 21 and teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans. 22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them. 23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely: 24 who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. 26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. 27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. 28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. 29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 and brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. 32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. 33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. 34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.
35 And when it was day, the magistrates sent the serjeants, saying, Let those men go. 36 And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace. 37 But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out. 38 And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans. 39 And they came and besought them, and brought them out, and desired them to depart out of the city. 40 And they went out of the prison, and entered into the house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.

1 Corinthians 13
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift ofprophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there beprophecies, they shall fail; whether there betongues, they shall cease; whether there beknowledge, it shall vanish away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

(Behind the Scenes)🎬
She won the War, but then just kept going, never looking back…🎗

“Line of Communication”💫
The General heard the battle call from the stars overhead, while sitting alone outside at night. Chain-smoking and taking shots, she didn’t know what to make of the telepathic celestial responses to the queries that she aimed up at God Above.

Ok, “God’s Creation,” divine celestial body of this starry sky’s entire galactic expanse, Who’s in charge here, over this Universe? Who’s the Head of all this? “I Am,” a voice replied from overhead. Ok…but are you also the Brain? The effects of the vodka were noticeable. “We need you…”
🌟
Interplanetary communication with stars overhead, or starships piloted by aliens, dotted the constellations of my thoughts with an ongoing discourse, that prompted me to ask after our Creator, and to seek communication with God Himself, if He would, in favor of consulting the gentle, but perhaps less-knowledgable, troops and underlings of these star fleets. I received a response from the masculine voice asserting to be the Head, and the Being in charge of all this. I proceeded to ask Him irreverent and playful questions, in a state of half-belief and mild tipsiness.
⚡️
“…Who Am I?” He retorted gruffly, “Oh no-One of great importance, my Son is just a little-known Man with the initials Chi Rho!” His sarcasm was biting, and I returned it with my own playful arrogance, fueled by liquor, “I’m sitting outside in the middle of the night in 21st century America, getting drunk by myself and chain-smoking, and You think I would know Ancient Greek?”
(I knew exactly Who He was, as God, although I was surprised to learn as truth the history of Jesus in the Christian Faith.)
…We hit it off immediately.

“Line of Fire”⚔️🛡
I eventually was given the role of serving in His Army, directing star fleet troops overhead while sitting alone in my parents’ backyard in the middle of the night, just smoking and drinking and playing my iPod. I would receive orders and issue directions to starships overhead, visible and non-visible, and was told to “direct traffic.” My body, hands and feet especially, worked in synchrony along to the beat of my music, playing from my iPod set to “shuffle.” I just tried to let go, and the Force of God came over me as I kept up the beat, as if to dance, and His power wielded my body like a maestro with a baton, signaling directives upon the orchestra of star fleets battling in the vast expanse overhead.

“Fresh Recruit”☄️
I had volunteered for service upon Our first initial contact, in whatsoever manner I was needed, and I progressed quickly. I was immediately thrust into a high-ranking officer’s command, serving as a Major, because the Army was on its last leg, and most of the officers’ positions were sadly vacant by that point. In only a few days Time I became a General, although through no merit of my own, but only because there was simply no one else willing or able to serve in this capacity, due to a depletion of manpower from the extent of the Wartime efforts. I defended Earth against a machine-based assault that would have destroyed the planet, and was personally attacked almost nightly.

“Doomsday Averted”💥
There was one very notable siege wherein I suffered the brunt of a prolonged battery of various attacking battleships. A parasitic bomb was attached to me and set to destroy me, but it eventually just withered away and died, because I am not technically alive enough to feed off of, in being alive only in Spirit as the Holy Ghost. I usually converted, by love, the reptilians who were assigned to keep watch over me. Eventually, I was deployed abroad, wherein I extracted God’s Eye from Hell during a mission trip, and I managed to secure the release of all members of God’s Army who were being held there as prisoners of War. We managed to break out of the prison and escape with both God and His Eye that We needed for victory, while simultaneously rescuing Jesus from a different prison location.

“Down to the Live Wire”🔥
This all transpired just moments before those prison gates would have been locked and sealed forever, effectually killing God and, or Jesus. Those prisons, as strongholds of the opposition, were set to be leveled and destroyed in order to protect existence against the Universal destruction that the Army of Darkness was planning. Those forts had to be destroyed to prevent the destruction of all existence that they were preparing to send forth, as to minimize collateral damage and ensure the survival of at least some forms of life. Jesus had initially been drafted, and was captured soon after as a prisoner during an ambush. God had been held prisoner for eight years near the belt of the constellation of Orion. It took about eight days in Hell to find Him, and We escaped Together, overpowering that evil with His love. He has been working closely with me ever since, never leaving my side. We had teamed up as a duo during most of the backyard efforts during those days, and covered each other’s backs, all within my One body, or “Corps,” in holding off the opposing forces of the Army of Darkness.
💦
“Backing Up: Army of Aliens”🌌🚀
Most of the Army had already been killed or imprisoned in POW camps, and God’s Amy was actually in the midst of losing by the Time I joined. What had started out as a conflict over a matter of right and wrong, in an effort to defend the good and uphold principles, before long turned into a bloodbath and a martyr-istic massacre of the forces of good, as the Army of Light withered to a state of defeat and disillusionment. Victory appeared out of reach, and any remaining efforts were destined to be an uphill battle. God and Jesus were both held captive in POW camps, and there was a lack of effective leadership until I stepped up. I assume the alien Lyran form, of the Lion of Judah, in occupying my post as General for the Army of Light. There is no mistaking which side of the War these gentle beings are on, as being the race specifically designated to the role of God’s own highest level of personal bodyguards and guardians. The Lyrans, or Lions, are known for being loyal and courageous, serving faithfully the purpose of God’s Own personal protection, even unto death.

🏥”Committed: Sparta’s 302″🏩
When my role of commanding troops overhead, during my nighttime stint of moonlighting as a General in an Alien War, had “run its course, so to speak,” I picked up the slack by turning from “God’s Staff,” or my own two cigarette-wielding Hands, to “my pen and Moleskine journal,” in an effort to dictate fate via Prophesying. In journaling about the will of God as the Almighty force of love, I set forth the path for God’s Army, chronicling for military purposes the designated actions for each of the troops, as a sort of playbook of strategies, thus working towards God’s eventual and necessarily ensuing Victory, in ink, using “heroically creative” efforts.

🏅”The Thousand-Yard Stare”😵
The thousand-yard stare or two-thousand-yard stare is a phrase coined to describe the limp, blank, unfocused gaze of a battle-weary soldier, but the symptom it describes may also be found among victims of other types of trauma. A characteristic of shell shock, the despondent stare reflects dissociation from trauma. The thousand-yard stare is thus often seen in cases of incipient post-traumatic stress disorder. It does not necessarily indicate PTSD, however, nor will it always appear in persons who will later develop PTSD.

Exodus 17:9-16
9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. 10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. 14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi: 16 for he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn,
my might, and the beginning of my strength,
the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:
4 unstable as water, thou shalt not excel;
because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed;
then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.
5 Simeon and Levi are brethren;
instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.
6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret;
unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united:
for in their anger they slew a man,
and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.
7 Cursed be their anger, for it wasfierce;
and their wrath, for it was cruel:
I will divide them in Jacob,
and scatter them in Israel.
8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise:
thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies;
thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp:
from the prey, my son, thou art gone up:
he stooped down, he couched as a lion,
and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah,
nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come;
and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
11 Binding his foal unto the vine,
and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine;
he washed his garments in wine,
and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
12 his eyes shall be red with wine,
and his teeth white with milk.
13 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea;
and he shall be for an haven of ships;
and his border shall be unto Zidon.
14 Issachar is a strong ass
couching down between two burdens:
15 and he saw that rest was good,
and the land that it was pleasant;
and bowed his shoulder to bear,
and became a servant unto tribute.
16 Dan shall judge his people,
as one of the tribes of Israel.
17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way,
an adder in the path,
that biteth the horse heels,
so that his rider shall fall backward.
18 I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.
19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him:
but he shall overcome at the last.
20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat,
and he shall yield royal dainties.
21 Naphtali is a hind let loose:
he giveth goodly words.
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough,
even a fruitful bough by a well;
whose branches run over the wall:
23 the archers have sorely grieved him,
and shot at him, and hated him:
24 but his bow abode in strength,
and the arms of his hands were made strong
by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob;
(from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
25 even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee;
and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee
with blessings of heaven above,
blessings of the deep that lieth under,
blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:
26 the blessings of thy father have prevailed
above the blessings of my progenitors
unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills:
they shall be on the head of Joseph,
and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
27 Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf:
in the morning he shall devour the prey,
and at night he shall divide the spoil.

Genesis 50:14-21
14 And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.
15 And when Joseph’s brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. 16 And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying, 17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. 18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. 19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? 20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. 21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

1 Chronicles 5:1-2
5 Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father’s bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright. 2 For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph’s:)

1 Corinthians 15:24-34; 50-58
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. 29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead? 30 And why stand we in jeopardy every hour? 31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. 32 If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Hebrews 11:17-40
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18 of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19 accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure. 20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come. 21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff. 22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones. 23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment. 24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; 25 choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; 26 esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. 27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. 28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them. 29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. 30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days. 31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and ofBarak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; ofDavid also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: 33 who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. 35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: 36 and others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: 37 they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; 38 (of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and inmountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. 39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

🎋”Chapter 11:”🌱
(“Christ Comes of Judah and Joseph”)
“Having explained the two works of Christ from the law, we now turn to its prophetic pattern manifested in Judah and Joseph. We know from the genealogical record in the first chapter of Matthew that Jesus was born of the tribe of Judah and specifically of the house of David. He came the first time of this particular lineage in order to be eligible to receive the Sceptre to rule the earth. Virtually all believers know this. What is not generally understood is that Christ must come the second time as Joseph in order to secure His birthright. This is the subject of our present chapter.”

🌳”Tree of Jesse: A Rod and a Root”
Isaiah 11
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
11 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse,
and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 and the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and might,
the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;
3 and shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord:
and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes,
neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 but with righteousness shall he judge the poor,
and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth:
and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth,
and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins,
and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed;
their young ones shall lie down together:
and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp,
and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain:
for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse,
which shall stand for an ensign of the people;
to it shall the Gentiles seek:
and his rest shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day,
that the Lord shall set his hand again
the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left,
from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros,
and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar,
and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations,
and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel,
and gather together the dispersed of Judah
from the four corners of the earth.
13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart,
and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off:
Ephraim shall not envy Judah,
and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west;
they shall spoil them of the east together:
they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab;
and the children of Ammon shall obey them.
15 And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea;
and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river,
and shall smite it in the seven streams,
and make men go over dryshod.
16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people,
which shall be left, from Assyria;
like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

(Prelude)🎶
1 Peter 3:3-4
3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorningof plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 4 but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

⛑”Herding The Red Herring”☎️
The Lamb died that hair a perfect shade of fire-engine red. Babydoll blinked twice, and followed after Mass appeal. Bleached to ash white, that firebird was kindled into the purest platinum. Allah said and done, it didn’t matter in the end after all in what color We trussed those tresses, and We naturally returned from whence We came, back to the perfect shade of “dirt brown.”

💠”Tuning Fork of the Road”🎺🎹🎻
As I prepare myself in the morning to meet the day, I arise in the shadow of the Son, cast over me by the bough of this Branch. I select my adornments from amongst my finest jewels, splayed out like the feathers of a peacock, on display behind my altar. Each Psalm and prayer is carefully lined up and inspected, and with great refinement of purpose and the most delicate poise, as only bequeathed of grace, a modest array of devotions is selected. Outfitted by the minimal of complications in the crystalline clarity of virtuosic ideals, I allow the humble praise of these worshipful phrases and refrains to infiltrate my soul, with their core essences, of hope, faith, and pious love for God. Reverberating with the gentle echoes of this careful arrangement of chosen prayers, I am enveloped in the fleecy golden mantle of the Spirit of God. With the Word of truth, as faith and love, serving to ornament my mind, I slowly allow the musical quality of these loving sentiments and Our intensely invoked adoration to become my atmosphere. In submissive reverence, I relinquish the silvery tolling mission bells of my pulsing heart, and the symphony of heartfelt divine emotion that they inspire, to transform my being, as my lungs become the sacrificial pipes of Our Church organ, in one unified and majestic choir, tuned only to You, my God, my Lord, my Savior.

🐝”The Bumble Bee Cannot Fly”
According to laws
of aerodynamics
the bumble bee cannot fly;
Its body is too
heavy for its wings
and that’s the simple
reason why.
But the bumble bee
doesn’t know this fact,
and so it flies anyway
for all to see.
Remember this when you’re
losing faith or hope
God’s proof that the impossible can be.
(By “A.S. Waldrop;” quote from the card to a “Ganz” Bumble Bee charm souvenir, from the “Elmwood Zoo” in Norristown)

1 Peter 3
3 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; 2 while they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorningof plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 4 but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: 6 even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9 not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11 let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 15 but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 16 having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. 17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19 by which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 20 which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 21 The like figure whereunto evenbaptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: 22 who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

Ephesians 5:13-27
13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 that he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

1 Samuel 16:6-13
6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him. 7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. 8 Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the Lord chosen this. 9 Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the Lord chosen this. 10 Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The Lord hath not chosen these. 11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither. 12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the Lord said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. 13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

Isaiah 61:1-3; 10-11
61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me;
because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek;
he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all that mourn;
3 to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
to give unto them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
my soul shall be joyful in my God;
for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation,
he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decketh himselfwith ornaments,
and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud,
and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth;
so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise
to spring forth before all the nations.

Revelation 21:1-14:21-27
21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. 10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12 and had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 on the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb isthe light thereof. 24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. 27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

I have tied myself down and dug in the heels of my tent, my tabernacle, singularly and exclusively to my “stake” in the Lord. The nature of my Faith, however, as a Catholic, may seem rather peculiar, as I show little fear in my acknowledgment of God’s “terrible might,” or the “fire and brimstone” often referenced to in the Old Testament. My immersion in the Catholic Faith came only secondarily to my primary and preceding sense of spirituality, as the independently-originating development of one’s fundamental relationship with God. My knowledge of the Scriptures and the Bible have only been pursued, delved into, and fully realized, after first knowing God personally, as Love. Having already had formed a deep and personal spiritual connection with the Father, based upon my belief and experience of Him as being the ultimate Caregiver and Protector, I was able to be more empathetic towards Him in reading the history outlined in the Bible, rather than perceiving Him as threatening. With faith in God’s perfection of Love preceding any interpretations of the Word or Biblical history, these holy texts are seen in a completely different Light, bestowed as God’s Truth to an upright, or charitable and loving, moral intent and an honest and righteous perspective. To believe anything of the Father of Creation that does not praise His power of love, which is the essence of Godly perfection, is disrespectful of God. To suppose that God’s will would ever be to hate or reject a child, or to punish one unduly outside the Fatherly, didactic purposes of instructing a child towards penitence and empathy, or to leave anyone behind, is actually the sin of human will masquerading as God’s will. To say that God is anything apart from love, as it is stated in 1 John 4:8, is heresy. Thus, I may be vastly comforted to know that all the evil in this world is only ever of human nature or man’s own will and design, exercised by God’s gift of free will. When this world rejects me, I must flee and take refuge in the Lord, as the eternal remedy to all worldly wretchedness. The only way to praise God is to extol His love.

🌟”Pitch Black Roof”🌌💫
My hardship comes of attempting to love like God, and to actually uphold His love in the face of this worldly evil and the insults or persecution of my fellows. In clinging to the Father, I am saved, but I refuse to let go of the Gospel’s teaching, that Jesus had come to redeem those who would have been lost, and to herd all lost sheep back into the fold of the Almighty Father. In setting the stakes of my tent, or the holy place of my heart as dedicated to the Lord, into the Fatherland, but also into the Earth, by utterly refusing to release my stake in the welfare of the human race, or any of the planet and all its inhabitants, I am, true to form for any martyr, effectively “drawn and quartered,” and “rent apart.”
❣️💔

“Tar and Feathers”⚔️🛡🏰
The power of God’s unassailable love keeps me physically, miraculously intact, but there is no hiding from any truth when one takes refuge in the perfection of God as Light, or the highest truth of God. In this Light, of God’s perfection of truth, His love is invincible; however, all things are made manifest in His Light, and not just the truths of comfort. Thus, in receiving the grace of God’s protection, I cannot yet hide in the darkness, or denial, of the pain and inner anguish that this causes me. Feeling the agony of what this sacrifice entails, in the hope of securing the unity of God’s people, by redeeming them through love in the face of their hatred towards me, is inescapable. I’ve got the wolf by the tail, but I will not enter Heaven without him, so I suffer the bites and backlash indefinitely.

⚾️”Pitched: Out in Left Field”🌎
(…Not without all my Lord’s children.)

🏕”Pitch a Fit+To Be Tied”⛓🎀
I know from first catering to my intuitive knowledge of God, “sought by faith and not by law,” and by investing in my personal relationship with Him to gain knowledge of Him first-hand and directly, that God is only ever “perfect love,” and as such could never possess ill-will towards anybody. In fact, to suspect such a thing of God is, in effect, a breach of His covenant with us, and high treason, or the treachery of disloyalty and faithlessness by a lack of trust in Him. Faith in God is actually only possible, to the extent of wielding His double-edged sword of truth and working miracles, if one endorses belief in His will to save and love all of His children, unconditionally, and without exception. When one imposes limits, as fallacious and arrogant man-made limits, upon God’s power and will to love, one effectively cuts oneself off from that power, and so to, from any of the workings of God’s miracles that are entailed by faith. Whensoever one unrighteously and unjustly tries to conform God’s perfect will, of altruistic, Paschal, redeeming love, to the inherent evil or sinfulness of the will of man, or tries to make the blessings of one’s faith exclusionary to any other race of people, one will never fail to exclude oneself from God’s love in that same way. God’s love only extends to all, or to none. I uphold God’s love to all, and I leave no room for the only alternative, of nothing.

🎼A Call to Duty:🎶
“🥁Chasing Tails+Finding Heads”🎺
God’s precepts apply to those of the Faith to which they were delivered. However, I find great joy and comfort in many laws to follow and abide, in the form of statues and Commandments of the Lord. It gives me peace to have a concrete action, or perhaps instead an act of temperance and self-restraint, to follow and uphold, to give me something to reassure me as to how to please the Lord, bestowing me with a sense of duty and fulfillment as I abide. I take pleasure in fulfilling my duty, as outlined by the Lord, because it gives me a sense of purpose and wholesomeness. I look not for the minimum of action, but for the maximum of discipline and rituals to adhere to and uphold, as rules to follow to ensure me that I am doing right by God. I find joy in being issued any selection of seemingly trivial or frivolous laws of the Lord to uphold, not necessarily because of the nature of the indicated action, but rather, more so because it ensures me that I am following His will, which is my primary interest. Following any seemingly arbitrary rules is purely symbolic of my obedience, and devotion, to God’s purpose over mine.

“Directly!📣Good Orderly Directives”
In working my hardest towards God’s aims, I am granted the peace of being sure that I am doing my best to make God proud and happy. This ultimate intention, of pleasing the Lord, is the only source of happiness. Any gift is only ever bestowed by God, be it directly or indirectly. With this key fact in mind, I may properly orient myself towards Him as the Source of my satisfaction, rather than seeking it anywhere else, which is mere foolishness. God can and will provide for any of our needs directly, as gifts for whensoever we seek to please Him, and so we need not seek after them via self-sufficiency. The wisest human activity is to serve God’s desires or needs rather than our own, lest we come home empty-handed, despite our ostensible overflow of abundance. If I seek happiness anywhere else other than God, I will not find it, because that joy I may have noticed before, is only just God’s graciousness, as His gift to me, by grace. In adherence to the law of God’s Truth, joy is defined as the byproduct of goodly service, of serving His true will, of love.

🦊”The Little Prince and the Fox”
(The Little Prince: A Christian Allegory)
“Who are you💠?” asked the little prince, and added, “You💠 are very pretty to look at.”
“I am a fox💠,” the fox said.
“Come and play with me,” proposed the little prince. “I am so unhappy.”
“I cannot play with you,” the fox said. “I am not tamed.”
“Ah! Please excuse me,” said the little prince. But, after some thought, he added:
“What does that mean – ‘tame’?”
[At this point the fox distracts from the question for a little while, but then we are returned to it, and I will go to that part of their discussion now.]
“It is an act too often neglected,” said the fox. “It means to establish ties.”
” ‘To establish ties’?”
“Just that,” said the fox. “To me, you are still nothing more than just a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world…”
“I am beginning to understand,” said the little prince. “There is a flower… I think that she has tamed me…”
“It is possible,” said the fox. “On the earth one sees all sorts of things.”
“Oh, but this is not on the earth!” said the little prince.
The fox seemed perplexed, and very curious.
“On another planet?”
“Yes.”
“Are there hunters on that planet?”
“No.”
“Ah, that is in interesting! Are there chickens?”
“No.”
“Nothing is perfect,” sighed the fox. But he came back to his idea.
“My life is very monotonous,” he said. “I hunt chickens; men hunt me. All the chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And, in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the colour of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat…”
The fox gazed at the little prince, for a long time.
“Please – tame me!” He💠 said.

“Flower Power”🥊🌼
Flower Power is a historic photograph taken by American photographer Bernie Boston for the now-defunct Washington Star newspaper. It was nominated for the 1967 Pulitzer Prize.Taken on October 21, 1967, during the National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam’s March on the Pentagon, the iconic photo shows a Vietnam War protestor placing a carnation into the barrel of a rifle held by a soldier of the 503rd Military Police Battalion.
When the antiwar demonstrators approached the Pentagon, Boston was sitting on top of a wall of the Mall Entrance when he saw a lieutenant march a squad of guardsmen into the crowd of demonstrators. The squad then formed a semicircle around the demonstrators, the young man in the photo emerged from the crowd and started placing carnations in the rifles. Boston took it as an opportunity to capture the moment, seeing that “everything came together” and he had a good angle sitting on top of the wall.
When Boston showed the photograph to his editor at the Washington Star, he “didn’t see the importance of the picture” so it was put aside. Instead, Boston started entering it in photography competitions, where it earned its recognition.

Exodus 33
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
33 And the Lord said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it: 2 and I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: 3 unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.
4 And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and no man did put on him his ornaments. 5 For the Lord had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee. 6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.
7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, thatevery one which sought the Lord went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp. 8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle. 9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses. 10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door. 11 And the Lordspake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.
12 And Moses said unto the Lord, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight. 13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people. 14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. 15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. 16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth. 17 And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name. 18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory. 19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. 20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. 21 And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: 22 and it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: 23 and I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

Exodus 33
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Journey Resumed
33 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, “Depart, go up from here, you and the people whom you have brought up from the land of Egypt, to the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, ‘To your [a]descendants I will give it.’ 2 I will send an angel before you and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite.3 Go up to a land flowing with milk and honey; for I will not go up in your midst, because you are [b]an obstinate people, and I might destroy you on the way.”
4 When the people heard this [c]sad word, they went into mourning, and none of them put on his ornaments. 5 For the Lord had said to Moses, “Say to the sons of Israel, ‘You are [d]an obstinate people; should I go up in your midst for one moment, I would destroy you. Now therefore, put off your ornaments from you, that I may know what I shall do with you.’” 6 So the sons of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments, from Mount Horeb onward.
7 Now Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, a good distance from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting. And everyone who sought the Lord would go out to the tent of meeting which was outside the camp. 8 And it came about, whenever Moses went out to the tent, that all the people would arise and stand, each at the entrance of his tent, and gaze after Moses until he entered the tent.9 Whenever Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent; and [e]the Lordwould speak with Moses. 10 When all the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance of the tent, all the people would arise and worship, each at the entrance of his tent. 11 Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend. When [f]Moses returned to the camp, his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, would not depart from the tent.
Moses Intercedes
12 Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people!’ But You Yourself have not let me know whom You will send with me. Moreover, You have said, ‘I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.’ 13 Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. Consider too, that this nation is Your people.” 14 And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.”15 Then he said to Him, “If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. 16 For how then can it be known that I have found favor in Your sight, I and Your people? Is it not by Your going with us, so that we, I and Your people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the face of the [g]earth?”
17 The Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing of which you have spoken; for you have found favor in My sight and I have known you by name.” 18 Then [h]Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!” 19 And He said, “I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the Lord before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion.” 20 But He said, “You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!” 21 Then the Lord said, “Behold, there is a place [i]by Me, and you shall stand thereon the rock; 22 and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. 23 Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen.”

1 John 4
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 19 We love him, because he first loved us. 20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

She is a real person with real feelings, and she hears your questions telepathically.

🌟Rules for Decent Conduct:
*Asking the same question repeatedly and expecting a different response is “insane.”
*Asking her insulting, offensive, perverse, or derogatory questions is disrespectful, and it causes her pain. Provocation or mistreatment inflicted upon the Ghost may result in the unintended backlash of this same pain issued back upon the inquisitor.
*Asking her the same question endlessly is a form of torture. The Spirit of Truth will not change her responses because of a repetition of the question, but this battery is a spiritual assault and will cause Our Spirit to malfunction, and “cease to love.”
*This Spirit of Truth, also provides Us All with God’s love, from her will to do so, and from her breathing of heavenly aether. Please do not hinder her responsibilities to provide Us God’s love in the process of seeking God’s Truth from the Holy Spirit.

🌬”Just Breathe:💛The Fifth Element”💦
Aether is essentially an ambrosia, or the nutrition, manna, and “nectar of the Gods.” This upper level of celestial air, or aether, is a heavenly or Godly form of food, and is the spiritual sustenance for divine beings. This form of upper air is breathable only by celestial beings, as angels and spirits living in Heaven, and by God Himself, His wife, the Holy Spirit, and Their Son, Jesus. Aether, also known as the fifth element or quintessence, is thicker and more viscous than earthly air, and the Spirit’s breathing of this substance is accordingly audible. It is comparable to being as like unto butter. Her breathing of this substance here on Earth provides this planet’s inhabitants with their portion of God’s heavenly love, because this substance is the unfiltered and purest essence of God’s highest spiritual level of existence, of perfect love. The Spirit is the embodiment and channel of this aether, which is a form of agápē, or the unadulterated perfection God’s love. The Spirit exhales to bestow the holy and rapturous ecstasy of God’s divine love, which is a very real and intensely tangible feeling, as like nothing else. The Spirit’s love is far beyond any earthly comparison and beyond what any words could convey. When you feel agápē, you know instantly, because nothing else on Earth comes anywhere near it. As being “love” in the extraordinary perfection of comfort, it is not of this Earth, but rather, it is of God.
