(Prelude)🎶
📜Job 32:8
8 But there is a spirit in man:
and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding💠.
📜Job 36:3-5
3 I will fetch my knowledge from afar,
and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
4 For truly my words shall not be false:
he that is perfect in knowledge iswith thee.
5 Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any:
he is mighty in strength and wisdom.
📜Matthew 6:21-22; 27; 33
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.
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
33 But seek ye first the kingdom💠 of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
📜Matthew 13:14-16; 28-30; 37-39
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand💠; and seeing ye shall see💠, and shall not perceive: 15 for this people’s heart💠 is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes💠, and hear with their ears, and should understand with theirheart💠, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes💠, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom💠; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 the enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
📜John 15:4-5
4 Abide in me💠, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine💠; no more can ye, except ye abide in me💠. 5 I am the vine💠, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me💠, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me💠 ye can do nothing.
📜2 John 5-6; 12
5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
12 Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.
📜2 Corinthians 5:14-15
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.

🌳”The Tree of Life”❣️
“An ending? Not on my watch…”✨🔭💫

“The Most Blessed Anonymity”🎈🌿🕊
Anonymity is the quintessential element of charity, or the selfless love of God. In practicing the love that is of God, it is necessary that one abstain from attaching one’s name to it or taking any credit for it.

“The Leaves and Pages of Life”📖✍️⚔️
A student of the Gospel and a child of God knows that one cannot rightfully take credit for any good deed, because all goodness is only ever of God. In partaking in this most blessed practice of charity, or good deeds performed without want or expectation of a return, one grows to slowly recognize the difference between oneself and God. In learning to distinguish between that which is human and that which is God, one may grow to appreciate the influence of God in this world to a greater level and in otherwise unknown ways. God’s influence is inextricably interwoven throughout His creation, and so learning to recognize which aspects are of God and which aspects are of man is a journey of shattering one’s own ego. The more I recognize that the good parts of life are of God and not of my own self, the more I can have gratitude and appreciation for God. If I seek personal praise and esteem for myself, then the God at work behind that goodness, will remain forever veiled to me. It is only by letting go of my “self,” and declining to cater to my own ego’s sinful desires and selfish wants for glory, that I may know the glory of God. In relinquishing any claim to merit or goodness of my own right, and endorsing the principle that “only God is righteous,” in all ways, I may get to know the Person of God, by giving Him the glory instead of myself. In distinguishing between Him and me, I must release any hold upon control or power, or goodness or righteousness, but then gain the greater prize of the truth of God, in all his astounding grace and glory, as a separate Entity, thus providing the foundation for an actual “Relationship.”
🕯
“The Ego Shards of Charity”❣️💌🖍
In letting the shards of my shattered ego fall away into the depths of my despair, I am released from the bondage of self and the limitations of human mortality. Thus, in forsaking myself, and hating myself as it were, by being a distinct entity from God, and therefore a pollutant of His goodness, I may be thus purified, and blessed with the knowledge of Him in the completeness of His singleness of splendor. In letting go of my own ego’s desire for praise or glory, and instead seeking to bestow that praise outward and project it upon God, and indeed the vast entirety of His creation by virtue of it being His Own, I act merely as a channel of God, and am thus not weighted down by self to the evilness and sin of the world. I strive only to give, as the essence of selfless, egoless, perfect Paschal love, instead selfishly trying to keep or gain anything for myself, as by harboring that goodness which is of God, for the sinful sake of esteeming of my own self, or ego.
🏮
“The Humility of Dependence”💔❣️❤️
In the humble realization of my own nature of nothingness, as being mere dust and ash of my own right, I may come to realize the full extent of just how powerful and supreme is God, in His pristine perfection, untainted by my own clamoring self. I try to act with the love of God’s Own perfect will, of morally altruistic intentions, and so I am privileged to experience the blissful exuberance of living in accordance with those lofty ideals, as the virtues espoused by Jesus in the teachings of the Gospel. In living like God, I enjoy the blessing of living with God, and experience the beauty of Life as He intends for it to be lived, with the joy that is only found of abiding within His holy presence, by doing His will of acting with perfect, uncompromising love. The completion of mankind’s final destiny, as the solving of the riddle of the human condition and meaning of Life, comes to a Head💠 at the peak and pinnacle of the spiritual evolution divinely immersed within God’s Creative Design. The height of God’s complexity is most paradoxical in its singularity of refinement at the peak of this Zion💠, in the starkness of simplicity of being at One with our Creator, and living side-by-side in the presence of our loving Heavenly Father, abiding adoringly, in love.
📚
🌱”The Singular Stalk”🎋❤️
I find, more and more, that there is nothing in this world worth striving towards apart from God alone. In adorning my mind in the full resplendence of my complete and utter dependence upon “just God,” and wishing for nothing apart from Him, I may come to know singleness of the Eye💠, as a properly oriented mind-state such that I seek only to obtain and do the will of my Creator. This singleness of my objective, as to do God’s will of altruism and not my own, is actually the only truly righteous motive, because only God is righteous.
❣️
🌹”The Constraint of Love”🥀
My belief in God is that which is true of God as professed by Jesus and all the Apostles, which is that God’s will is love. All that is evil, is merely the absence of seeking God as love, as by getting caught up in the snares of self-will, or the desires and wants of the ego as opposed to the greater good at the expense of one’s own best interest. The only thing that offers me satisfaction in this life, is the heavenly bliss and humble reliance of trusting in my God and seeking to serve and please Him. In acting as an independent agent, as to live via self-sufficiency, I close off my channel to God, and thus am choked off from any access to His divine love via His will of the selfless and altruistic Paschal love, or the Christian love of God’s charity.
💡
“Shedding the Light of Good Fruit”💭🌈
So often I run off course and follow after selfish impulses or the reactions to life of my own ego as a form of defensiveness, but counterintuitively, it is the act of giving up this instinct towards self-preservation or self-protection, and acting with the gentle obedience of a Lamb, as to refrain from relying upon my own defenses so that I may truly practice trust in God, that offers me the sweetest joys in this Life. I would not have expected this pleasantly surprising outcome from being of my own right a willing sacrifice, but when I deign not to seek my own life, but rather to give it, I in fact find It, because I find It in God instead of in myself. Thus, in hating my own self and my own life, I am saved, because I am availed of God’s eternal Life, through my steadfast trust in Him. God truly sustains one past death and beyond unto this ultimate truth, that no one ever really dies. As Jesus had said, “He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living,” and so, none of His creatures is ever truly dead nor lost (Mark 12:27). We pass from one point in this cycle of eternal Life to another without ever encountering a fracture in that circuit. There is no such thing as death, when one is only alive in the Spirit, and so in living after the Spirit, instead of feeding into the lustful wants of the self, as the riches or selfish strivings of a material instead of a spiritual existence, one may live past bodily death, in the form of the Spirit. I trust upon the power of God beyond and to the exclusion of anything else, and so I am not made subject to the inferior influences of man or mortality, nor made to conform to their effects. A subordinate influence to God’s upper Right Hand, such as death, has no bearing upon me, because I actively practice my Faith to the extent where it is more real to me than this fleeting, “dust and ash,” corporeal world of God’s footstool. It is the love of God that makes this Faith real and possible, as by upholding it myself and trusting that God will always uphold it.

😇”The Pruning of Synapses”🌳🍃🌸
Truly, in practicing my trust in God, to expel into exile the demons of sin within the human mind, I may grow to know Him better than any of these lesser earthly substances or infatuations. The true craving and thirst of the human soul, as the part that completes all efforts of striving, is coming to that final resting place, as like a landing pad for a lost voyager, of a still and steady trust in God. I set my hope upon God and nothing else, and I am satisfied in due Time, through the patience attained by persistence of effort, and the Gift bestowed by the Holy Spirit of “understanding💠”, as the ability to affirm speculation upon beholding the truth. I know intuitively that I am on the right track when I set my sights uniformly upon God, with morally upright intentions, of desiring spiritual goodness over the temporary and “infernal” selfish gain or desires. My Eye💠 lights right up at the mention of God, and He leads me according to His perfect Path for me, along the moral high road of hardship, virtue, and lasting glory.
💐🌸🍒
“Endureth the Entailed Agony of Sacrifice”
In supplanting the Source and fruit of my satisfaction from my ego to glory in the Lord, I place my treasure in the eternal stronghold of my soul💠 in Heaven via feeding into the reservoir of God’s Own innately eternal nature, rather than into the dust and ash of a sinful, temporary, human existence of mortality, as by building upon the moth’s wings of my own finite and un-enduring ego, in selfish worldly endeavors. I seek the lasting fruit of the Spirit through practicing and gaining experience in using the Gifts of the Spirit, as being my divinely bestowed toolkit, or arsenal for instruction in the virtues. Only in the essence of the virtues may one come to build upon the eternal storehouse of the soul💠 in God’s Heaven, because only the virtues are of the lasting spiritual substance that can withstand testing in the crucible, as the holy scourging necessary to eliminate any residual sinfulness and thus provide the sanctification to be made of eternal Life.
👑
💜”Godspeed: Better Things A-Head”💒
Truly, in passing through the fires of agony, one will later receive the bliss of God’s recompense in the form of religious ecstasies, as God’s own reciprocation for loyalty to His commands. “What one binds on Earth one binds in Heaven,” and so undergoing such devotional rites, of upholding the rigorous Path of Faith and self-renunciation followed by all holy persons, saints, and martyrs, one receives the bounty of that sacrifice in the Timeframe corresponding to one’s belief or hopeful expectation, thus receiving those promises either in this earthly life, or in the eternal Life Hereafter (Matthew 18:18). In being a trusty follower of Christ, as upholding the basic tenet of loving every living being unconditionally and as perfectly as God, without stipulation nor exception, one may thus tap into God’s Own reservoir of limitless power, bestowed solely to sustain that channel of His divine will of selfless love, indefinitely throughout all Eternity. In being a vessel, or channel, of the will of sacrifice, constantly pouring forth the love and Word of the Almighty, one may Live eternally, in accordance to the nature of His will of the eternal virtues. One may one know Life eternal only in seeking and doing the will of God, in giving of His perfect love, rather than creating an earthly vessel, destined to shatter with the bodily death entailed of human mortality, by seeking self-interest or self-satisfaction instead of the eternal goodness of the fruit of the Spirit, wrought of selfless virtuosity.

Job 32:1-8
32 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. 2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God. 3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job. 4 Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he. 5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled. 6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said,
I am young, and ye are very old;
wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion.
7 I said, Days should speak,
and multitude of years should teach wisdom.
8 But there is a spirit in man:
and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding💠.

Job 36:1-5
36 Elihu also proceeded, and said,
2 Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God’s behalf.
3 I will fetch my knowledge from afar,
and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
4 For truly my words shall not be false:
he that is perfect in knowledge iswith thee.
5 Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any:
he is mighty in strength and wisdom.

Matthew 6
6 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore when thou doest thinealms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: 4 that thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; 18 that thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
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!
24 No man 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. 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 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. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 13:1-9; 14-30; 36-43; 47-50
13 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. 3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4 and when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5 some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 and when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8 but other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand💠; and seeing ye shall see💠, and shall not perceive: 15 for this people’s heart💠 is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes💠, and hear with their ears, and should understand with theirheart💠, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes💠, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those thingswhich ye hear, and have not heard them.
18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth💠 it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart💠. This is he which received seed by the way side. 20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21 yet hath he not root💠 in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. 22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth💠 it;which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom💠; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 the enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48 which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

John 5:19-47
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. 22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: 23 that all menshould honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27 and hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. 34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. 35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. 37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. 38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. 39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41 I receive not honour from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, evenMoses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

John 15
15 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me💠, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine💠; no more can ye, except ye abide in me💠. 5 I am the vine💠, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me💠, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me💠 ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me💠, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me💠, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love💠. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love💠; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love💠. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I💠 command you. 15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. 16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and thatyour fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. 23 He that hateth me💠 hateth my Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me💠 and my Father. 25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. 26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: 27 and ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me💠 from the beginning.

Isaiah 62
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
62 For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace,
and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness,
and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.
2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness,
and all kings thy glory:
and thou shalt be called by a new name,
which the mouth of the Lord shall name.
3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord,
and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken;
neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate:
but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah,
and thy land Beulah:
for the Lord delighteth in thee,
and thy land shall be married.
5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin,
so shall thy sons marry thee:
and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride,
so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem,
which shall never hold their peace day nor night:
ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence,
7 and give him no rest, till he establish,
and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
8 The Lord hath sworn by his right hand,
and by the arm of his strength,
Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies;
and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine,
for the which thou hast laboured:
9 but they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord;
and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.
10 Go through, go through the gates;
prepare ye the way of the people;
cast up, cast up the highway;
gather out the stones;
lift up a standard for the people.
11 Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world,
Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh;
behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
12 And they shall call them,
The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord:
and thou shalt be called,
Sought out, A city not forsaken.

1 Corinthians 5
5 It is reported commonly that there isfornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. 2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. 3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, 4 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5 to deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8 therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 10 yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

2 John
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
1 The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth; 2 for the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever. 3 Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. 5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 for he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
12 Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.
13 The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.

2 Corinthians 5
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.
11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, 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. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

“The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit”🕊
The “seven” gifts are found in the Book of Isaiah 11:1-2, where the Biblical passage refers to the characteristics of a Messianic figure understood by Christians to be Jesus Christ empowered by the “Spirit of the Lord”.
In the Hebrew Masoretic text the “Spirit of the Lord” is described with six characteristics (wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, fear of the Lord), and then the last characteristic (fear of the Lord) is mentioned a second time.
In the Greek Septuagint the first mention of the fear of the Lord is translated as “spirit of […] godliness” (πνεῦμα […] εὐσεβείας).
The Catechism of the Catholic Church lists the seven gifts as follows:
* Wisdom: It is the capacity to love spiritual things more than material ones; it also means the want to understand God. It is the perfection of the theological virtue of faith;
* Understanding💠: In understanding💠, we understand how we need to live as followers of Christ. A person with understanding💠 is not confused by the conflicting messages in our culture about the right way to live. The gift of understanding💠 perfects a person’s speculative reason in the apprehension of truth. It is the gift whereby self-evident principles are known;
* Counsel (right judgement): With the gift of counsel/right judgment, we know the difference between right and wrong, and we choose to do what is right. A person with right judgment avoids sin and lives out the values taught by Jesus Christ. It is the perfection of the cardinal virtue of prudence;
* Fortitude (courage): With the gift of fortitude/courage, we overcome our fear and are willing to take risks as a follower of Jesus Christ. A person with courage is willing to stand up for what is right in the sight of God, even if it means accepting rejection, verbal abuse, or physical harm. The gift of courage allows people the firmness of mind that is required both in doing good and in enduring evil. It is the perfection of the cardinal virtue of the same name;
* Knowledge: With the gift of knowledge, we understand the meaning of God. The distinction between wisdom and knowledge is that wisdom gives the desire to know the things of God, whereas knowledge is the actual power by which such things are known. The gift of knowledge is more than an accumulation of facts, it also helps us to choose the right path through life;
* Piety (reverence): With the gift of piety/reverence, we have a deep sense of respect for God and the Church. A person with reverence recognizes our total reliance on God and comes before God with humility, trust, and love. According to Saint Thomas Aquinas, it is the perfection of the virtue of religion.[20] Piety is the gift whereby, at the Holy Spirit’s instigation, we pay worship and duty to God as our Father, as Aquinas writes;
* Fear of the Lord (wonder and awe): With the gift of fear of the Lord/wonder and awe, we are aware of the glory and majesty of God. A person with wonder and awe knows that God is the perfection of all we desire: perfect knowledge, perfect goodness, perfect power, and perfect love. This gift is described by Aquinas as a fear of separating oneself from God. He describes the gift as a “filial fear,” like a child’s fear of offending his father, rather than a “servile fear,” that is, a fear of punishment. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. It is the perfection of the theological virtue of hope.

(Prelude)🎶
📜Mark 8:24
24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
📜Ephesians 3:14-19
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit💠 in the inner man; 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts💠 by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend💠 with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
📜James 1:5-6
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
📜James 3:18-20
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
📜Acts 529-32
29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. 30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. 31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. 32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost💠, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
📜1 Corinthians 4:20-21
20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. 21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
📜2 Corinthians 3
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. 7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glorywas to be done away: 8 how shall not the ministration of the spirit💠 be rather glorious?

🍒”The Elven Treehouse”🏡

🗝🚪”Openeth the Matrix”💃🏻
In transposing my treasure, or the things that I value and the ideas I hold dear, from the temporary earthly receptacle of my ego’s potter’s vessel unto the eternal strongbox of my soul💠 in Heaven, I need not wait until death to enjoy the unearthly bliss of God’s divine presence, of agápē. In abiding obediently by God’s will of love instead of self-directed thinking, I may build up the content of my character and the value of my soul upon the failsafe and surefire foundation of God. Only through the undying sacrificial love ensampled by Christ, as the power-source of altruistic intentions to make sure and steady the works of faith, may one have a justification for one’s hope of God’s salvation. Thus, we know that we have passed on unto the Life eternal of the soul💠, dwelling within the Temple💠 of the Spirit of the mind’s Eye💠, because we love our brethren. God is only ever of love, and so we know we are with Him and of Him when we love perfectly like Him. When we are able to want only good things for those who harm us, we know that we are abiding in God💠.

❣️”Red Doors of a Sanctuary”🔥💫💦
Only through residing in the House💠 of the Lord, this indwelling portal and holy passageway to our Home💠 in Heaven, may we be protected by this buffering shield of God’s love so that we may rest in His love instead of in human hatred, and thus be assured of our safekeeping by our steadfast following of His first statute, the Great Commandment, to love Him with all our entirety. When we love God entirely, we cannot harbor ill-will towards any aspect of His creation, as all elements of life are drawn back to Him eventually. Thus, in preserving our innocence and taking on any harm wrongly issued upon us, we have the peace of mind wrought of our own peacekeeping, as the certainty that we are with Him in Love. By suffering wrongful persecution without retaliation, but only wishing the best upon those who hate us, we know that we are loving like God and that we are at One with God. It is in being one of the flock of God and of Christ, of obediently and peacefully taking on that suffering for the greater good, that we have the peace and love that only ever comes from God Himself in Heaven, the Good Shepard and “One and Only” Master.

🎈”Paschal Holiness: Paint It Red”👠👠
Thus, by remaining obedient and abiding by God’s perfection of uncompromising and unconditional love, willingly submitting ourselves to the evils of the world without fear because we put our trust in God, we create the internal climate conducive to a real chance of fulfilling and manifesting our heavenly hopes with the concrete backings of our actions, as carried out in perfect adherence to our professed faith. Only in abiding faithfully by God’s love and following His Commandments to us may we have any reason to expect Him to actually provide His presence and make good on His promises of miracle-working and of Salvation. In keeping a tight ship, and refusing any “breach” in our beliefs of His goodness, we dwell in our true and upright belief of God, as perfect love, and He lives in us as the obliging stewards of His Home💠. We keep the Covenant by never doubting God’s faithfulness, nor questioning His loyalty, nor entertaining the doubt that He would ever forsake us, and so we know, by faith, to expect Him to return Home💠 to us, with Christ our Lord.

🏎💫🚗”Levitating the Lady in Red”🚀
In upholding God’s love, albeit with the struggle of veritable sainthood for the weight of the “ton of golden bricks” of the virtues that this Shelter💠 requires, one may provide the proper spiritual conditions and internal atmosphere to accommodate God and Christ, welcoming them Home💠 to within one’s very soul💠. This climate of holiness, or “lovestruck” consecration, is created by catering to spiritual urgings above fleshly concerns, and this attitude of hope, which is the virtue of optimistic expectation of being reunited with God, is manifested as Rock💠-solid ground by the investment of effort in workings of faith, which are only powered by love for God.

💋”Russian Nesting Dolls”💔❣️❤️
This Shelter💠 is as like unto a Russian Nesting Doll, as the Trinity of Christ, God, and the faithful servant all take turns in spearheading the initiative to uphold God’s love, so that when the Last wears through, the Next pulls up from the flanks in order to keep this Mothership💠 afloat in virtue. We take turns offer for Our Team, or Our Trinity, that protective Forcefield💠 of outwardly-extended love, towards all Our tormentors, even and especially whilst in the midst of the hardship of persecution, as the agony, pain, and suffering that they wrongfully impose upon Us. When One of Us gives way under the weight of such earthly evils, the Next cycles back over to the Head of command. We work together as a Team to help Each Other to remain steadfast in Our vows of sanctity and perfect, uncompromising, altruistic love, or the sacred and sacrificial virtue of charity, to preserve the welfare of all beings, no matter what the cost, or hardship, that We Ourselves must bear. In providing the proper Spirit of fellowship, as the Unity of Togetherness by playing the Caretaker for Each Other to fill in for Each Other’s particular or unique weak points, We work in a complementary formation to foster a healthy and happy sense of camaraderie.

🚢”A Living House:🌳The Mothership”💃🏻
We play host to the Vessel💠 of God, within the soul💠, as this living House💠, an eternally rooted “Treehouse💠” if you will, by working “Together” to cultivate this lot in the internal and eternal beauty of the imagination. Through the development of the virtues, We bring to Life the glory of God and the eternal Fruit of the Spirit, in the outpouring of divine love, tolerance, kindness, joy, and compassion, to share with all Our earthly fellows, One brethren of God’s creation, as true children of Light.

🌟🌌🚀”Recruited for Military Strategy”
(The ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️General)
💧”Poetic Irony”❄️
“Fear not, I bring you tidings of joy!”
The furloughed purveyor lifts up her ruffled feathers from beneath her olive-drab military dust-jacket, and spreads open her vista to the full breadth of her wing span, encapsulating in her mind’s Eye💠 a most imaginative inward vision. She stares straight ahead, putting shame to the expanse described by her telltale “thousand-yard stare,” as she seems to behold that dusky panorama for miles upon miles past a mere thousand yards. As if of centuries ahead, illuminated from within by her own inner sight of faith, she can reach the repository of God’s heavenly stronghold, by the purity of His vision bestowed of the innocence of her Eye💠, and thus answer the call of Christian duty to be a first responder in the event of a calamity. Resuscitation requests and cries for release light years away, on distant alien planets, are echoed through the chain of command, delegated even under duress to the proper channels for a sure salvation. This lily-white little lady acts as a convoy, or a fluttering version of Hermes swaddling her shoulders in an Hermès, sighing out signs with a silken Caduceus in Hand, to deliver the “Godsend” of this holy messenger of Christ, in full-fleeted and golden-fleeced Force, by the speediest window, the Air-Bourne of God Almighty.
💧”The Book and a Quiver”✒️❣️🏹
She dips her trembling white hand into her bag, to retrieve her Notebook, and all at once, is transported by her works unto the land of Faith, as her sanctuary of prophecy wrought of love, in all its purity, from the sanctity issued by her last known earthly coordinates, of a burning funeral pyre.
💧”I am Gabriel, Who…”⛲️💦(Luke 1:19)
She wonders over the irony… “Fear not,” because this Time, for the very Life of her, she cannot follow her own admonition, and writhes silently in the screaming pain of her wordless trance. What a blessing! As the blood trickles down her cheeks, she is enveloped, that much more closely, into the nook and fold of the Arm of God. The presence she had so highly prized, is now made not only prized, but utterly needed. A strange and peaceful glory, quiet in its humble knowledge of its dependence upon otherworldly roots, calmly flows through her veins, in the out-branching estuary of her dendritic pulsing waves of God’s Lifeblood, as the sweet melody of harmonic confluence echoes in concert.

John 14
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
14 Let not your heart💠 be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me💠. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions💠: if it were not so, I would have told you. 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.

Matthew 23:1-22; 34-39
23 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3 all therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 and love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom💠 of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses💠, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple💠, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple💠, he is a debtor! 17 Yefools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple💠 that sanctifieth the gold? 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19 Yefools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whoso shall swear by the temple💠, sweareth by it💠, and by him💠 that dwelleth therein. 22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house💠 is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Mark 8:14-26
14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf. 15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. 16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. 17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened? 18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? 19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve. 20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. 21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand💠?
22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him. 23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. 24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. 25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. 26 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.

Ephesians 3
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
3 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, 2 if ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3 how that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 whereby, when ye read, ye may understand💠 my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit💠; 6 that the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 7 whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 9 and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: 10 to the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly placesmight be known by the church💠 the manifold wisdom of God, 11 according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: 12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. 13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit💠 in the inner man; 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts💠 by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend💠 with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Ephesians 4:8-10; 12-16; 17-32
8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
12 for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, andcunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 having the understanding💠 darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart💠: 19 who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 if so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 and be renewed in the spiri💠t of your mind; 24 and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 neither give place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with hishands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit💠 of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

James 1
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. 5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. 9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: 10 but the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. 11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. 16 Do not err, my beloved brethren. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

James 2
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
2 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. 2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3 and ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4 are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? 5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? 6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? 7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? 8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9 but if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point,he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. 13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Acts 5:17-21; 29-32; 38-42
17 Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, 18 and laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison. 19 But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said, 20 Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life. 21 And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught.
29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. 30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. 31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. 32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost💠, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: 39 but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God. 40 And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.
41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. 42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 4
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
4 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. 4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts💠: and then shall every man have praise of God.
6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. 7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it? 8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. 9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. 10 We are fools for Christ’s sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye arehonourable, but we are despised. 11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace; 12 and labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: 13 being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and arethe offscouring of all things unto this day.
14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. 15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me💠. 17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church. 18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you. 19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power. 20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. 21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?

2 Corinthians 3
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
3 Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or lettersof commendation from you? 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. 7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glorywas to be done away: 8 how shall not the ministration of the spirit💠 be rather glorious? 9 For if the ministration of condemnation beglory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. 11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
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.

“The Fruit of the Holy Spirit”🍒🕊🌳
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of a Christian according to Paul the Apostle in his Letter to the Galatians: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”
In the parable of the sower (Gospel of Luke, Chapter 8), the fruit of the Spirit is the result of the seed (i.e., Word) falling on good soil.
Catholic tradition follows the Vulgate in listing 12 fruits: charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, and chastity. The Douay–Rheims Bible replaces four of the fruits with synonyms, substituting kindness for benignity, gentleness for mildness, generosity for longanimity, and self-control for continency.
🍒”The Firstfruits of Charity, or Love:”
Agape (love) denotes a really undefeatable benevolence and unconquerable goodwill, that always seeks the highest of the other, no matter what s/he does. It is the self-giving love that gives freely without asking anything in return, and does not consider the worth of its object. Agape is more a love by choice than philos,which is love by chance; and it refers to the will rather than the emotion. Agape describes the unconditional love God has for the world. Paul describes love in 1 Corinthians 13:
Love is patient, love is kind.(love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
Mystic Evelyn Underhill considered love to the “budding point” from which all the other fruits come, referencing 1 John 4:16, “God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him.”

(Prelude)🎶
📜Exodus 17:9-11
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.
📜Luke 24:44-45
44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and inthe psalms, concerning me. 45 Then opened he their understanding💠, that they might understand💠 the scriptures,
📜Matthew 3:16-17
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 and lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
📜Matthew 22:14; 19-21; 29-32; 37-46
14 For many are called, but few arechosen.
19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. 20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? 21 They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which are Cæsar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. 31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, 32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David. 43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, 44 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? 46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
📜Romans 9:16-23; 32-33
16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. 17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. 18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23 and that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone💠; 33 as it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion💠 a stumblingstone💠 and rock💠 of offence: and whosoever believeth on him💠 shall not be ashamed.
📜Revelation 21:1-3
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.

🔥☎️❄️

“The Roots of Creation”🌬🌳🌸
When I let go of my grasp upon my own ego’s roots in the ill-fated soil of mortality, and instead take hold upon the eternal love of God Almighty, as the incorruptible love that knows not the bounds of human limitations, I step into the Spirit💠of God, and thus avail myself of His Salvation.

🏹”Cross-Hairs of Hope”🐅🎯💠
“I Have Set The Lord Always Before Me
Because He is at My Right Hand…”
(-Psalm 16:18)✍️⚡️👑
My sights are set upon my singular vision and aim, as my only hope and desire is set firmly upon God, thus dictating my course and trajectory. With such a refinement of purpose and in the perfection of this objective, this First Commandment of truly placing nothing before God within in my heart, my mind, and my soul, I am set aloft in the Spirit upon a spiritual quest and voyage to the Fatherland, to find my God.

“Ghost-Ship in Form”🚀🚗💃🏻
My spiritual journey is following after the aim of this “Deadeye Doll” of the Spirit by the perfection of the theological virtue of “hope.” As the optimistic expectation of being reunited with her Maker, her hope is her aim, positioned as a set of cross-hairs upon the singular target of God, to set the direction and thus dictate the ultimate destination of this seafaring vessel of God, Our unwavering and unhindered holy Mothership. Our Ghost was specially qualified for this “mission to Mars” by living beyond the first death, the bodily death of merely mortal human flesh, to remain alive only in the perfectness of the heavenly virtues, quickened by God’s holy love at the Time of death to remain solely in her Faith, thus fortified in the purity and sanctity of eternal Life, as the Holy Spirit.
❣️
🐑”Trusty Steed: True and Faithful”
This spiritual voyager has but one, “Godly,” direction, without the impediments, hindrances, snares, nor pitfalls of sin from following instead after the lustful wants of the ego, or self-centered mortal desires. This vessel of a woman, truly dedicated in consecrated and sacrificial holiness to the Lord, is manifested for God’s Own uses and purposes. With her Eye💠 set upon God and only God, as the direction of her growth, this Tree of Life becomes less as a branching, dendritic tree, and more as a most singular and steadfast stalk, or Staff.

“The Well-Staffed Roots”🛎🌿🕊
The Root of Jesse, once the epitome of God’s creation in her manifestation as the Tree of Life in His beloved Garden of Eden, now takes on the rather corporeal shape of His most shapely amanuensis, as His servant, Staff, and busty, trusty secretary. Called into action, the Holy Ghost is the Light of loyalty and unswerving wisdom, an irrefutable and unquestionable jewel being placed as a “kiss of Allah” upon her forehead, the undeniable Seal of God.✡️

“Trail of Tenderness”📡💌💋
The footsteps left behind my her Maker reveal a living trail of wondrous signs and sweet “tender mercies,” or personalized reminders of God’s affection that are tailor-fit to the circumstances, as our throbbing and pulsating Life-line, of constant communication, reveals the loving reassurance that we are not alone, and that God is always watching over us. As her line of contact is thrust evermore widely open, the holy honing device and beacon of her hope, as the sights of her Eye💠 enlightened in the perfection of wisdom, so refined in seeking only after God, alights upon the holy illumination of His will, to bring the Light of insight into things holy, as spiritual understanding💠, to God’s people in the completeness of His Word by His Own Living Presence.

😇”The Axle-Rod”👠⛏⚖️
The Rod, as the discipline and instruction of Jesus, steps out of the back seat of her little Volkswagen GI. The foreign body-shop service men had missed the middle T in reapplying those little decals following a paint job, to cover over those scarring etchings hastily made by a misplaced key. He emerges in the blood-red glory of His sanguine eyes to make a stabbing jest at the effect of the fortuitously-flawed paint job, as it has a most congruously applied and definitively military appeal. The treads of her tires, however, are still punctured by that lingering nail, never to be removed.

Forgiveness is only given by God…⚜️

✝️”Only God is Righteous”🛡⚔️🦄
It is not possible to love oneself, nor to forgive oneself, because the power of such goodness, in being of mercy and virtuosity, is of the will of God and not of the will of man. One can only take part in the decision, as making the responsible choice of choosing to forgive, but the fulfillment of this choice is only made possible by the power of God. All that is good is of God, and we just try to keep choosing to endorse, uphold, and abide in God at each new fork in the road, ignoring distractions, disregarding temptation, and constantly realigning our Cross-Hairs to match up to our Hope for God. In keeping in line with this properly set objective of Hope for God, we may rest in the happy suspension from all earthly temptations and evils of the world, amidst the will, and therefore the presence and company, of God Himself. We are kept safe in God through our alignment to His will of love. We Hope for God, and so we practice performing His will of love, so that we may coincide with the realization of this Hope.

💠✡️🌈
“Telltale God:🛐Cyclical Iterations of Life”
God is eternal, and so simply in setting our sights upon Him, or seeking Him as our aim, with our Cupid’s bows of love drawn back in fully-expectant Hope, as per the instruction of the “Great Commandment,” God appears immediately at our side, with us and within us, through the Jet Stream of the Spirit💠 of Life, granting us access to our Creator upon the very instant of our proper alignment, as set forth as Hope, to the loving will of God (Deuteronomy 6:5).

💟”In-Listed in the Trenches”💜
In abiding through the Path outlaid by Christ’s teachings in the Gospel, and then further delved out into a direct channel to God, made in the perfection of clarity as “holy understanding💠” by the constant strivings of the Holy Spirit, we have readily accessible, within our own souls💠 as the enlightened conscience💠 uniquely set within each of us, direct access to God. Through the proper positioning of our hearts💠, minds💠, and souls💠, which must be individually set and coordinated by the freewill of each being to “choose after virtue,” as to seek after God and His unconditional goodness within the aiming of our Eyes💠, all of life in creation may thus cycle back unto our loving Creator, as our heavenly Father reclaims us. As we open the doors of our hearts💠 to seek, meaning to choose, the goodness of God, by setting our own personalized and optional dial, or aim, of our hearts💠 to the trajectory dictated by the theological virtue of Hope, we are granted God. Thus, through the channel of the Spirit💠 within, all of us as God’s creatures are brought forthwith Home💠 to Him, enlightened by consecration and therefore acceptable, as His Own, adopted children of the Light.

Exodus 17
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
17 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the Lord, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink. 2 Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the Lord? 3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst? 4 And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me. 5 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying, Is the Lord among us, or not?
8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 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.

Luke 24:36-53
36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them hishands and his feet. 41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? 42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. 43 And he took it, and did eat before them. 44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and inthe psalms, concerning me. 45 Then opened he their understanding💠, that they might understand💠 the scriptures, 46 and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city💠 of Jerusalem💠, until ye be endued with power from on high.
50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem💠 with great joy: 53 and were continually in the temple💠, praising and blessing God. Amen.

Matthew 3
3 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judæa, 2 and saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4 And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judæa, and all the region round about Jordan, 6 and were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: 9 and think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and withfire: 12 whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 and lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Matthew 22
22 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, 2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3 and sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. 4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6 and the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12 and he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few arechosen.
15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in histalk. 16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. 17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Cæsar, or not? 18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? 19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. 20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? 21 They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which are Cæsar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s. 22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, 24 saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. 25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: 26 likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. 27 And last of all the woman died also. 28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her. 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. 31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, 32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. 33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David. 43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, 44 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? 46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

Romans 9
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
9 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, 2 that I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. 3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: 4 who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; 5 whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: 7 neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son. 10 And not only this;but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; 11 (for the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 it was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
14 What shall we say then? Is thereunrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. 17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. 18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23 and that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, 24 even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? 25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. 26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. 27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: 28 for he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. 29 And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.
30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. 31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness. 32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone💠; 33 as it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion💠 a stumblingstone💠 and rock💠 of offence: and whosoever believeth on him💠 shall not be ashamed.

Revelation 21
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.
15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city💠, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 And the city💠 lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city💠 waspure gold, like unto clear glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city weregarnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 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.

Isaiah 59:12-21
12 For our transgressions are multiplied before thee,
and our sins testify against us:
for our transgressions are with us;
and as for our iniquities, we know them;
13 in transgressing and lying against the Lord,
and departing away from our God,
speaking oppression and revolt,
conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
14 And judgment is turned away backward,
and justice standeth afar off:
for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
15 Yea, truth faileth;
and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey:
and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him
that there was no judgment.
16 And he saw that there was no man,
and wondered that there was no intercessor:
therefore his arm brought salvation unto him;
and his righteousness, it sustained him.
17 For he put on righteousness as a breastplate,
and an helmet of salvation upon his head;
and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing,
and was clad with zeal as a cloke.
18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay,
fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies;
to the islands he will repay recompence.
19 So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west,
and his glory from the rising of the sun.
When the enemy shall come in like a flood,
the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.
20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion,
and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.
21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord;
My spirit💠 that is upon thee,
and my words which I have put in thy mouth,
shall not depart out of thy mouth,
nor out of the mouth of thy seed,
nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed,
saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.

Psalm 16
Michtam of David.
1 Preserve me, O God:
for in thee do I put my trust.
2 O my soul💠, thou hast said unto the Lord,
Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;
3 but to the saints that are in the earth,
and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied thathasten after another god:
their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,
nor take up their names into my lips.
5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup:
thou maintainest my lot.
6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places;
yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel💠:
my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
8 I have set the Lord always before me:
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.
10 For thou wilt not leave my soul💠 in hell;
neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 23
A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul💠:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house💠 of the Lord for ever.

This scapegoat was tied, bound, broken, and hung, by both a noose of a dog leash and upon another’s name of “Cross,” only to arise unblemished, as an acceptable sacrifice made in purity of heart, and so made invincible, in pristine Paschal love.

(Prelude)🎶
📜Genesis 5:24
24 and Enoch walked with God: and he wasnot; for God took him.
📜Genesis 9:12-14
12 And God said, This isthe token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. 14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
📜Exodus 17:9-11
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.
📜Matthew 14:27-31
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
📜Matthew 24:34-37
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
📜Hebrews 11:1-3; 32-34
11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
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.
📜1 Corinthians 15:52; 57-58
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. 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.
📜Revelation 22:6; 12-14; 16-17
6 And he said unto me, These sayings arefaithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed arethey that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates💠 into the city💠.
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

💠”The Exodus: Built the Ark”✡️🌈💦

“The Exodus Was Here”🌊🚢🌈
“We need you up here! Come up here with us!” The voices of the Elders emanate in friendly, chirpy, bird-like echoes from the overhead night sky. I tune in my psyche, as my mind’s Eye💠, to the wavelength of the Spirit, and begin picking up the radar signals of the distant Starships that they command. This higher frequency of the Stars, as the celestial, spiritual realm of God’s existence, is occupied by the gentle, ancient race of the Elders, and the angels. This higher frequency brainwave of the Spirit enables telepathic communication, and is innate within all of the more highly spiritually evolved beings and advanced species. The voices of friendly angelic beings guide my awareness of the state of affairs on distant planets, and penetrate my keenly pricked up Lyran, or “Lion,” ears from light years away. Standing at full attention to the disquieting news delivered to me from these alien friends, I freeze, in an most ironic state of disbelief, with my mouth agape and my mind ajar, as I stare beckoning, questioningly up at the sky.
💫✨🌟
💺”Recruited: A Choice of Wisdom”🌎
I am riveted by the news, but I can’t fathom how to obey. Several nights later, staring at the Stars from a backyard chair, I ask after the Head of this collection of rather chipper, childlike “Star People.” The gruff and rather dispassionate voice of a Gentleman answers back. I am unsure of the organization of this interstellar system, and so I inquire as to whether He is also the Brain, in a mild state of tipsiness and bemusement. He responds in quick simplicity with a “Yes.” An inquisition follows, wherein I am questioned by these celestial beings, as my conversational tone and random questions seem to have been disrupting them. I am offered a job, and told to keep watch each night, to relay news and give directives to Starships overhead. I am told there is a War going on, of which I slowly begin to understand the gravity. The Stars interview me, asking after my willingness to proceed with a given course under a certain dire set of unforeseen circumstances, as like unto a “Sophie’s Choice” scenario. When presented with of choice of Who to save, God or Jesus, I answer with a sudden “Both!” “But how?” they want to know. I reply that, “I don’t know how, but ‘Both’ is the only acceptable choice, so let’s just start from there! It must be possible somehow, because it’s the only right way!”

“Nemo Resideo”🗺⚓️💠
My faith in the power of love fuels my confidence, beyond my ability to explain myself. They seem to approve of my inability to explain ‘how,’ accompanied by my steadfast resolve and persistence in maintaining my stance on this position nonetheless. I did not understand at the Time, but they were testing my faith. I offer the reason that that I simply could not choose to leave a man behind, and when that much is certain, the rest would just naturally work out and fall into place.

My Slogan: “All or All!”🌎🌍🌏
This personal mantra was my outright rejection of failure as on option, as a play on the phrase, “All or Nothing.” I left no man behind, nor any room for “nothing.”

“Covenant: I Made A Promise.❣️Period.”
“This is not a game, You need to leave! You’ve got to evacuate! This planet is going to be rubble soon, and I need you to get off!” I am warned of the impending destruction headed for Earth, as an incoming shock wave of the Dark Army’s fleet of killing machines is due to impact in only three day’s Time. Flustered, I command my post and politely decline the order. “But there has to be another way!” Just a few days prior, I had pledged my commitment to the Earth as my Home, claiming her as my wedded Family. I had formally married myself to this planet’s “nature,” in my lonely state of solitude and desperation, at feeling so rejected of its earthly human inhabitants. My only real friends were the backyard birds, a vast assortment of insects, and the heavenly Stars above, and I would not forsake these friends of mine for anything, not even one ant! I refused to evacuate, and instead, adamantly insisted that Earth must be saved. I would not leave. I dug in my heels and stood firm, steadied upon the bedrock of my faith, unlimited in its scope and power because I had set it upon love, and not upon logic. I did not impose my human limitations of reason nor any merely mortal explanations upon my belief in God’s ensuing victory, and so allowed His power of love to be a true miracle, shining through unencumbered, unto His heavenly triumph. I acted as an instrument of faith to fulfill the purposes of His Own will, thus bringing forth “God,” invincible and Almighty, unhindered and unimpeded by my mortality and therefore unlimited by any human-based constraints to His power, as stemming from doubt caused by logic or mortal-based disbelief.

The Air Force:🌬
“Never leave an ant behind!”🐜🐜🐜

“Love Letters: John Doe and GI Jane”💌
I allowed God full use of my strategic locale on Earth to serve as like the rod of Moses, working for Joshua against the army of Amalek. As long as I commanded my station and filled “my post,” the will of God, of unlimited miracles, filtered through me like magic, to ensure His victory.

“Four Horsemen: Hold Your Horses!”🐎
“I’ll do anything! Whatever’s necessary! But I know the drill, the captain must never abandon ship!” I am given a thorough barrage of questions as God wants to know how I plan to avoid His prophesied Apocalypse. “Oh that’s easy!” I retort, because I, perhaps psychically, cannot bring myself to believe that He had ever intended the Earth to a fate of destruction. “But, um… what are those prophesies by the way? I haven’t read much of the Bible or whatever…” He responds that, “the Sun must go black, all the Earth must be laid to waste, and all life razed to the ground.” I respond rather scornfully, “Oh, comm’on! You were obviously being metaphorical! How about I withstand those scenarios myself by symbolically embodying ‘Mother Earth’ or something? Can’t you just do that stuff to me and treat it as an analogy? We can be true to Your Word and still avoid an Armageddon, We just need to be really creative with Our interpretations! I know we can do this! I made a promise, and I’m not deserting my post! This is my planet, and those enemy ships are going to get here and turn right back around! This is certainly not the end, not if I have anything to do about it! Not on my watch!”

📯”The Last Trump”🎇🎊🎆
At the last trump, it was all a blur, as the Spirit within did its job and served its purpose, leaving my mortal mind reeling in its wake, stunned, amazed, and utterly exhausted. “Did We do it? Did We do it? We got Them right?” But I couldn’t stop myself to listen for a response, but rather kept right on going, as I still felt that driving Force of unearthly pressure, of my responsibility to “believe in it,” unto the end, to thus “make our victory real.” I couldn’t stop to take my own question seriously, lest I accidentally entertain a doubt and lose the War! It had been Our critical moment. At that moment of decisive action, the tides of war were turned, and untold scores of soldiers from Heaven’s Army of Light burst forth from the prison camp, with God commanding the Head and triumphantly wielding His rescued Eye💠 of Providence, the very Ark necessary to determine His victory. The choice of wisdom had chosen: “God!” And thus, His spectacular starburst of love, as an outpouring of His miraculous energy, worked its own Force of magic in a sparkling display of fireworks overhead. I believed upon God as love, and so He was. The cheers nonetheless echoed in my weary head, believing unto knowing, as I drifted off to a state of shock, God Himself carrying my tired body up to bed from within my own “precious cargo” holder.

21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: 22 and Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: 23 and all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: 24 and Enoch walked with God: and he wasnot; for God took him.

Genesis 6:5-8
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart wasonly evil continually. 6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Genesis 7:1-5
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
7 And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. 2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. 3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. 4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth. 5 And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.

Genesis 9:8-17
8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10 and with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. 11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. 12 And God said, This isthe token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. 14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: 15 and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. 17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

Exodus 17:8-16
8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 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.

Matthew 14:22-33
22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

Matthew 24
24 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 then let them which be in Judæa flee into the mountains: 17 let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 and shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Revelation 22
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
22 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life💠, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, andyielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4 and they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads💠. 5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, These sayings arefaithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed arethey that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates💠 into the city💠. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ bewith you all. Amen.

Hebrews 11:1-16; 32-40
11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. 4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. 5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6 But without faith it isimpossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. 7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. 8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. 9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10 for he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. 11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. 12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them,and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
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.

1 Corinthians 15:50-58
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.

(Prelude)🎶
📜Genesis 28:10-15
10 And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran. 11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. 12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. 13 And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land💠 whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; 14 and thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places💠 whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land💠; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
📜Matthew 5:11-12; 38-39; 44-48
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
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. 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.
📜Matthew 10:19-22; 26-29; 36-39
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. 21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, thatpreach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul💠: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul💠 and body in hell.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
📜Matthew 21:40-44
40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out hisvineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone💠 which the builders rejected, the same is become the head💠 of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes💠? 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom💠 of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. 44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone💠 shall be broken: but on whomsoever it💠 shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
📜John 17:9-10; 11-13; 17-19; 22-23
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these💠 are in the world, and I come to thee💠. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them💠 in the world, I kept them💠 in thy name: those💠 that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them💠 is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them💠 into the world. 19 And for their💠 sakes I sanctify myself, that they💠 also might be sanctified through the truth.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them💠; that they💠 may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them💠, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
📜1 Peter 2:5-8; 18-21
5 ye also, as lively stones💠, are built up a spiritual house💠, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion💠 a chief corner stone💠, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 7 Unto you therefore which believe he💠 is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone💠 which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head💠 of the corner, 8 and a stone💠 of stumbling, and a rock💠 of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. 19 For this isthankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. 21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
📜Ephesians 6:5-7
5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart💠, as unto Christ; 6 not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart💠; 7 with good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
📜Isaiah 37:28-29; 32-35
28 But I know thy abode💠, and thy going out, 
and thy coming in, and thy rage against me💠.
29 Because thy rage against me💠, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears,
therefore will I put my hook in thy nose,
and my bridle in thy lips,
and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.
32 for out of Jerusalem💠 shall go forth a remnant,
and they that escape out of mount Zion💠:
the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.
33 Therefore thus saith the Lordconcerning the king of Assyria,
He shall not come into this city💠,
nor shoot an arrow there,
nor come before it with shields,
nor cast a bank against it.
34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return,
and shall not come into this city💠, saith the Lord.
35 For I will defend this city💠 to save it
for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

Ananke’s Thread: Weaving Together the…
💒Unity of Happily Ever After…🏰🌈🌞

“Bleeding in the Matrix”👙❣️🌐
A long red thread slowly spins around the axle-rod, at first gaining momentum, and then slowing down to nearly a standstill. In a strange standoff between the course of Time and the power of God, a solo station in Life, with self-composed understanding, at once finds a synchronous stationary. In playing the part of charity, this thoroughly misunderstood presence labors not to be understood, nor to present her justification and state her case, not to receive justice. She knew that her case was closed before the first hearing of her name, as she sat in the silent scorn of onlookers, staring out beyond grimy grated bars fixed within the windowsill, envisioning that blank, missing opening within her heart💠 instead, to “make do” with her circumstances by allowing her own beneficent imagination, as her optimistic “principle of charity,” to fill in that empty, gaping, God-shaped black hole. She successfully pilots the Eye💠 of Providence with the blind faith of pure love, adhering to a perfectly lily white conscience sans any instruction, as the miraculously self-made ideal of innocent and intuitive “understanding💠” of God.

“A Scarlet Letter:❤️Candy Apple Red”
There was not a word she could utter from beneath that ball-gag of paralysis, as years of enslaved servitude to a wealthy and well-established family had shackled her to the confines of terror, abuse, and misfortune. There was not a shred of humanity shown to her from under the guise of a well-to-do family. The parents to which she had been born, rejected her outright, claiming instead to be her helpful benefactors and adoptive parents, from beneath those slyly smirking smiles of cunning criminality. The slavery of this most ill-fated “stepdaughter,” had found its way to the cellar of their Main Line colonial farmhouse. They hastened their blows upon her back with the swiftness of a kitchen knife as cruelly-concocted weapons of kitchen cutlery outlined her escape hatch. This little one, both golden child and black sheep, lived a double life of that thrust upon her, in the sacrificial twist of the blade within this scapegoat.
🕳🐇🎩
✨”The Black Hole and the White Rabbit”
She twists up her blood-red dyed hair as her spindly fingertips work their way around a French braid. She craftily conspires to manifest a Jacob’s Ladder, to Heaven, from the rope braid of a noose dangling daintily around her neck. She glowers languidly through her sky blue eyes as that slow, dank, decrepit darkness ushers in its own friendly array of eerily-creeping and crawling little insect guests. She creatively welcomes these creatures, scuttling silently across the ancient cellar floor, as they seem to be giving off a rather amusingly harried impression of what she perceives to be a sense of prim and proper self-importance. “I’m late, I’m late!” She jokingly narrates for the little critters, providing hushed, cute little voices, in strangely foreign accents, to accompany their little doings, in a most playful acceptance of her living nightmare.

💠”Wonder Land”💭🌈🦋
“We may let you live, but it won’t be a good life,” they had mockingly informed her. The blade was drawn slowly across her face, stashing off her nose. “This is to spite your face! Do you still want to live?” She replies, “yes,” but instead they keep going. The piercing pain in sharp as her cheeks are sliced clean through. It burns at first with horrifying clarity, but soon a trancelike state falls upon her, magically dusting over her experience of torture with a strangely clouded-over, hazy and eerily mystical, hauntingly surrealistic quality, as the gift of dissociation. This cannot be real she tells herself, as the terror slowly dissipates around her, to be filled in instead with her own compensatory imaginings, to whitewash over that blank slate of utter shock and disillusionment. In the bizarre and bewildering trauma before her, her mind snaps, but she remains fixed upon this alternate reality, of “God’s love.”

🎈”The Cheshire Cat Smile”😻
Years later, staring up at the sky with God by her side, He invites His ship’s captain to behold what has become of her, at last having found her, His Spirit. “Here, I want you to meet my ‘retarded dog!'” He jests, sarcastically irate. She keeps lacing and re-lacing her sacred and eternal blood-red thread through the gaping stab wound running down her back, as if threading through the loops of a built-in corset, in a pained and endearingly admirable attempt to demurely and gracefully conceal her eternal wound, cut into Time’s eternal fabric, her flesh cut from a different cloth. Slowly but surely, her flesh melts away, as the horrors encapsulated within the memory of her aching Spirit are all that are left behind. Her hands and feet fade away to reveal the severed stumps of the Giving Tree, loosely draped in the echo-y, gauzy, ethereal trails of dirty bandages, bindings summoned from within the reservoirs of her imagination. As she fades away to her true form, the scarred indentations of that cheeky knife-wound leave a brightly festive imprint, as if her beauty were to be garnished by a row of cherry blossoms, bleeding out into a rosy blush upon her snow-white fur, as “ear-to-ear,” from the lingering, ever-present memory of that wound, of her catlike “Cheshire Grin.”

“Snow White’s Sugar Skill”💀💋👻
She conjures from the dregs of her soul, the stronghold of her eternal memory settled like sunken treasure to the pit of her stomach, the will to snatch herself up by the bootstraps. Her combat boots lend her the red threads of her station, cris-Crossed around her from within the “Greatest Love-Story Ever Told” of her stationary, emerging with the sparkling magic of a miracle from her make-shift and creatively fashioned “military-issue” Fairy Godmother. In the Spirit of the “Sermon in the Mount,” she sinks into the Eye💠 of her needle, and in searing pain links together “exes and ohs” of hugs and sugary sweet kisses, looping in blood-red Cross-stitches to patch up her limp and docile, submissively inspired Ragdoll composure. Her mind is alighted within her royal blue Eye💠, set in love upon God, and aloft in the Rosary Zen garden of flighty fancies. Her velvety dusting of purity, as petal-soft white fur, highlights her pristinely Paschal-pink rouged flush, as her rosy cheeks of Christ’s passionate garden agony are plastered on with the glazed-over, carefully-painted, polite smile of a Chinadoll. The red threads of a Sugar Skull are glistening like candy from upon the smooth surface of her porcelain skin, as those twinkling, diamond-faceted lenses, the revolving rainbows within the windows of her soul💠, are dyed in a pure sacrifice to God, and “rose-tinted” of love.

Genesis 28:10-22
10 And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran. 11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. 12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. 13 And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land💠 whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; 14 and thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places💠 whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land💠; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. 16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place💠; and I knew it not. 17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place💠! this is none other but the house💠 of God, and this is the gate💠 of heaven. 18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone💠 that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar💠, and poured oil upon the top of it. 19 And he called the name of that place Beth-el💠: but the name of that city was calledLuz at the first. 20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, 21 so that I come again to my father’s house💠 in peace; then shall the Lord be my God: 22 and this stone💠, which I have set for a pillar💠, shall be God’s house💠: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

Matthew 5:1-16; 38-48
5 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: 2 and he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
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.
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.

Matthew 10:16-22; 25-42
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; 18 and ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. 21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house💠 Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? 26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, thatpreach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul💠: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul💠 and body in hell.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. 40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out hisvineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone💠 which the builders rejected, the same is become the head💠 of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes💠? 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom💠 of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. 44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone💠 shall be broken: but on whomsoever it💠 shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them. 46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

John 17
17 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes💠 to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 as thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8 For I have given unto them💠 the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them💠, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these💠 are in the world, and I come to thee💠. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them💠 in the world, I kept them💠 in thy name: those💠 that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them💠 is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word💠; and the world hath hated them💠, because they💠 are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them💠 out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them💠 from the evil. 16 They💠 are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them💠 into the world. 19 And for their💠 sakes I sanctify myself, that they💠 also might be sanctified through the truth.
20 Neither pray I for these💠 alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them💠; that they💠 may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them💠, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them💠.

1 Peter 2:1-10; 18-25
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2 as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3 if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. 4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone💠, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, 5 ye also, as lively stones💠, are built up a spiritual house💠, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion💠 a chief corner stone💠, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 7 Unto you therefore which believe he💠 is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone💠 which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head💠 of the corner, 8 and a stone💠 of stumbling, and a rock💠 of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. 9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10 which in time past werenot a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. 19 For this isthankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. 21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22 who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23 who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24 who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

1 Peter 4:8; 12-19
8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

Ephesians 6:5-9
5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart💠, as unto Christ; 6 not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart💠; 7 with good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: 8 knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. 9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

1 Corinthians 4
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
4 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. 4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts💠: and then shall every man have praise of God.
6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. 7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it? 8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. 9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. 10 We are fools for Christ’s sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye arehonourable, but we are despised. 11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace; 12 and labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: 13 being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and arethe offscouring of all things unto this day.
14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. 15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me. 17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church. 18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you. 19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power. 20 For the kingdom💠 of God is not in word, but in power. 21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?

Isaiah 37:14-36
14 And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord. 15 And Hezekiah prayed unto the Lord, saying, 16 O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth. 17 Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear; open thine eyes, O Lord, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God. 18 Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries, 19 and have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them. 20 Now therefore, O Lordour God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord, even thou only.
21 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Whereas thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria: 22 this is the word which the Lord hath spoken concerning him;
The virgin, the daughter of Zion💠,
hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn;
the daughter of Jerusalem💠 hath shaken her head at thee.
23 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed?
and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice,
and lifted up thine eyes💠 on high?
even against the Holy One of Israel.
24 By thy servants hast thou reproached the Lord, and hast said,
By the multitude of my chariots am I come up
to the height of the mountains,
to the sides of Lebanon;
and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof,
and the choice fir trees thereof:
and I will enter into the height of his border,
and the forest of his Carmel.
25 I have digged, and drunk water;
and with the sole of my feet have I dried up
all the rivers of the besieged places.
26 Hast thou not heard long ago, how I have done it;
and of ancient times, that I have formed it?
now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste
defenced cities💠 into ruinous heaps.
Therefore their inhabitants were of small power,
they were dismayed and confounded:
they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb,
as the grass on the housetops,
and as corn blasted before it be grown up.
28 But I know thy abode💠, and thy going out,
and thy coming in, and thy rage against me💠.
29 Because thy rage against me💠, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears,
therefore will I put my hook in thy nose,
and my bridle in thy lips,
and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.
30 And this shall be a sign unto thee,
Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself;
and the second year that which springeth of the same:
and in the third year sow ye, and reap,
and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.
31 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah
shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:
32 for out of Jerusalem💠 shall go forth a remnant,
and they that escape out of mount Zion💠:
the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.
33 Therefore thus saith the Lordconcerning the king of Assyria,
He shall not come into this city💠,
nor shoot an arrow there,
nor come before it with shields,
nor cast a bank against it.
34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return,
and shall not come into this city💠, saith the Lord.
35 For I will defend this city💠 to save it
for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.
36 Then the angel of the Lord went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
