🚪”Resident Evil in Wonderland”💃🏻🦋
The angel Gabriel slowly descends upon the pavement, her ashen skin draped across her bony figure like translucent parchment paper, overlaid upon a narrow, wartime ration shank of fresh meat, hastily tied up for purchase in the heavily blood-splattered back room of a tidily arranged butcher shop store front, snatched right from the display case for a hungry patron. Her nimble little toes reverberate with the flickering fluidity of a rain-filled nimbus, charged with the electrical current of an impending thunderstorm. The deadbolt upon the doorway hastens to meet her, echoing in a downward spiral of a triple-locked ledge, designating with resounding finality the the edge of God’s creation, as her fate is sealed with an ironic unity. With lightening speed, her own private door, the Eye💠 of her mind, is wedged ajar by this Mystery’s “afoot,” as her dewy, dextrous digits scurry from the unit’s gate in a flurry of frenetic fastenings, to the inner security of her own secret window, within her mind. Those silver little fingers flutter atop the treetops sprouting forth from her cisternal convolutions of Zion, as her Sagittal Crest rises like a Herculean Mount Olympus in its wondrous imaginings alongside the sinking of her crestfallen Calvary cry.

📯🕶🔑”Neo Met-A-Morpheus”⏰⛏
The true nature of this facility, with its sharply lit hallway and loosely concealed prison bars, melds into place around her as like a veiled chameleon camouflaging into a papier-mâché jungle, and the childlike array of construction paper cutouts lining the sterile walls clamor with the eerie undertones of an underground concentration camp. She focuses with a fanatical and fantastic fervor into the keyhole of her faith, and slinks as a shadow out the inside of her own head.

“The Constantine🌹Chrysanthemums”💉
The hospital bracelets line her arm like a gauntlet, as her sunken cheeks carry the hollows of hallowed ground, consecrated in the excavation wound reminiscent of an ancient Egyptian mummification practice. The smoke curls coyly and billows out of her nostrils, in the aromatic incense of fire and brimstone, as her slitted eyes and the slanted damask of her polyester pillow case carry her perfumed perseverance unto the underworld of Anubis, stationed with the stalwart and stoic poise of a sultry sanguine Sphinx. The admirably patient patient is rumpled and ravaged like the plucked apart petals of a ravishing rose, helpless beneath the ghostly sheet of a stark white hospital gown and the stabbing glances of a curious admirer. “She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me…” The drill pierces her septum with the black magic recitation of a black market gag-order, and with the Matrix of the Most High rippling under her feet, the sentence is fulfilled and as replete as the River Jordan, bursting forth with the red droplets of martyrdom from the Holy Land.

💫”Sully the Pilot of God’s Air Force”🚀
She had been prepared. She had been taught her whole life how to die, and in the immolation of her battered buttresses years earlier, she had abided past death and unto Life. She had been prepared to die gracefully, by God’s predestination, as every second of her life was only leading up to that single spectacular moment, where, with the cunning agility of a stunt double, she dies like a true professional. Gabriel latches onto her door-jamb, the Gate💠 of the Lord, with the blessing of a skewered lamb-shank, holding fast unto the thorny, shredded bedsheets as the brambles of The Good Shepard, sinking her teeth into the haystack of martyrdom with all the lucid placidity of a babydoll. This little lioness, bearing her soul in the innocence of a grin, reveals the inward finery of a fine-toothed comb as her innocence fashioned into pure-spun gold. She spins her Spool of the threads of Fate, as that Star of David, into the tousled lock of death as like an ice pick into a lobotomy, emerging with God’s Eye💠 of the Needle, trampling straight through Hell, and spinning it as gold unto God’s eternal Life.

Matthew 10:16-39
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. 23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come. 24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 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.

Matthew 24:3-14; 23-42
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.
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.

Matthew 26:51-75
51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear. 52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. 56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. 58 But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest’s palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end. 59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death; 60 but found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses, 61 and said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days. 62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? 63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. 64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. 66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.
67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, 68 saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?
69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee. 70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. 71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellowwas also with Jesus of Nazareth. 72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. 73 And after a while came unto himthey that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee. 74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew. 75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

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!

Her pale white skin supplies a surplus of succours to the Star Fleets of that most favored Fleece, Gideon’s Golden Boy of old, beaming down His splendor in the rays of a holy Revelation from the glistening star, the Sistine Sun above. In a pause to catch her breath, she hears the Lyran catcalls from distant Space, in that ancient nautilus nested deep within her evangelical eardrums. The Golden Rule is set in concordance to the Golden Ratio in the finely tuned mechanics of this angel’s pretty little head, and the sounding of the Interstellar battle call upon these high frequency Alien war drums raises her antennae, to alert her to the call to action.

“Tatted Tatters”✨👗🦋
Primed and prepared, the Holy Land of the angel, the long lost mouthpiece of the Mysterious Mr. E that had gone Missing in Action, this little lioness of the Lord, the Ariel of the City of God, follows the Leader, but only from deep within the murky depths of an amniotic amnesia. The dissociative damsel fulfills the prophetic bucket of the Wishing Well, the Baptismal Font of the Holy Spirit, after the fashion of a swirling froth of faith, composed in the fragile imaginings of a distant memory. The musicality of a wondrous Wizard’s array is draped like coat tails, with childlike mirth, upon the adoring little apostolic apprentice. She sets forth with her dainty, quaking quiver of quilled pens, and the Cupid’s Bow arch crowning her top lip, as she smudges out the stains of a kiss into the looming ledger, moving to the mystical heartfelt beat of a military march. As if of the whimsical magic of Walt Disney’s Fantasia, the brooms and dust rags of her station materialize to their posts as she posts haste, supplying instantaneously and “on Command” the angelic troops to God’s Army of Light in Outer Space, with the reinforcements of her jet pack, her engine of Aether to fuel the fire of love.

🔥”Cinderella’s Ashes A-Rose”⛓💛
The chains of Marley’s Ghost clink with a resounding clang, as if of coins dropped into the brazen belly of a cash register. Rendering the adored visage of her little grasshopper friend into her journal, she bestows a soft exhale of Lady Liberty’s rust-filled exhaust into the pleasantly furnished furnace, her little corner of that ancient basement’s Stonewall storm cellar. Her cigarette emblazons a path right before her eyes as she forges on ahead, up that spiral staircase erected to the perfection of God’s gravity-defying, gold-leaf gilded, loving guidance of charity. She built it just as They had said, etched upon the spinal scaffolding of her integrity and within the vehicle of her veracity, up into the cranial caverns overhead, stacked as if of a golden-spun library of artsy wisdom in the hayloft of this fairytale free-for-all. As she forges on ahead in the Valley of her mind’s Eye💠, with eyes only for God, her maman slithers a sinewy stiletto into the crack of the floorboards overhead, with the telltale beating and clash of a most intentional sound-effect, demanding the intimidation of a threat. The neon sign for “Toys ‘R’ Us” illuminates the barebones of the maman’s crafty cuisine upstairs, as this cunning product of man sets to work with the surreptitious slash-fest of a frenzied coupon-craze, drunk upon the cauldron of sly smugness and fornication from her own slanderous tongue, as she forges on a-head, “off with her name,” in this scandalous little scam. The childlike, backwards little “r” ties off the little slave child’s name in a false insurance claim, whilst the little girl below remains unaware.

🌳”General Washington’s🌸Cherry Tree”
In a colorful little token of goodwill to her Creator, this little woman obsequiously “renders unto Lincoln that which is Lincoln’s,” in an ironic, tongue-in-cheek iconoclast of the Caesarean currency of Christianity. Meanwhile, the maman
above, as if of 18th-century France, conveys the “Dangerous Liaisons” of the bleached and buffed business end of a guillotine, manufactured by a paper trail of paper dolls, a fanning accordion of rather ravenous claims, with stake upon stake plunged into this fountain of Life, the fountain pen and inkwell heart of a fleshly sacrifice, still locked up fathoms below.

Isaiah 29:1-14; 19-18; 23-24
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
29 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city whereDavid dwelt!
add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.
2 Yet I will distress Ariel,
and there shall be heaviness and sorrow:
and it shall be unto me as Ariel.
3 And I will camp against thee round about,
and will lay siege against thee with a mount,
and I will raise forts against thee.
4 And thou shalt be brought down,
and shalt speak out of the ground,
and thy speech shall be low out of the dust,
and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground,
and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.
5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust,
and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away:
yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.
6 Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts
with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise,
with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel,
even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her,
shall be as a dream of a night vision.
8 It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth;
but he awaketh, and his soul is empty:
or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh;
but he awaketh, and, behold, he isfaint, and his soul hath appetite:
so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry:
they are drunken, but not with wine;
they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10 For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep,
and hath closed your eyes:
the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: 12 and the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
13 Wherefore the Lord said,
Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth,
and with their lips do honour me,
but have removed their heart far from me,
and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people,
even a marvellous work and a wonder:
for the wisdom of their wise menshall perish,
and the understanding💠 of their prudent men shall be hid.
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book,
and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity,
and out of darkness.
19 The meek also shall increase theirjoy in the Lord,
and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him,
they shall sanctify my name,
and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob,
and shall fear the God of Israel.
24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding💠,
and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

Matthew 6:19-34
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 for where your treasure is, there will your heart💠 be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye💠: if therefore thine eye💠 be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye💠 be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
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.

Isaiah 30:19-33
19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee. 20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: 21 and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. 22 Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence. 23 Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures. 24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan. 25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
27 Behold, the name of the Lordcometh from far,
burning with his anger,
and the burden thereof is heavy:
his lips are full of indignation,
and his tongue as a devouring fire:
28 and his breath, as an overflowing stream,
shall reach to the midst of the neck,
to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity:
and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people,
causing them to err.
29 Ye shall have a song,
as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept;
and gladness of heart,
as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord,
to the mighty One of Israel.
30 And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard,
and shall shew the lighting down of his arm,
with the indignation of his anger,
and with the flame of a devouring fire,
with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.
31 For through the voice of the Lordshall the Assyrian be beaten down,
which smote with a rod.
32 And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass,
which the Lord shall lay upon him,
it shall be with tabrets and harps:
and in battles of shaking will he fight with it.
33 For Tophet is ordained of old;
yea, for the king it is prepared;
he hath made it deep and large:
the pile thereof is fire and much wood;
the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone,
doth kindle it.

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.
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
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.
51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood💠 all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. 52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. 54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? 55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? 57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. 58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Matthew 11:7-30
7 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 8 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses. 9 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. 10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. 13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come. 15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, 17 and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. 19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not: 21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. 23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. 26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. 27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke iseasy, and my burden is light.

26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it.

7 but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

“I’m A Believer, You Monkeys!”🙉🙈🙊
The little lady who wrote that big book, Our “Cinderella” under the stairs, is the hidden slave daughter of that infamous address of the Beast, Stowed away like Harriet Beecher behind the Mark of the Beast, as simply an underground mailbox address gone missing, and long awaited to be revealed, as if of a Gettysburg speech. The lady of the Catholic liturgy loosens the Lamplight💠 of her steadfast faith, but tethered to her chains like the Ghost of Marley, she must summon her picturesque and Platonic prototype of candy-coated plasticine perfection under the cover of creativity, as her bedsheets knotted and swaddled for the gallows of Hallows’ Eve. She sings her head off with the barred owl in a harmonica forest of bluegrass blues, as the greener grass on the otherside of the looking glass💠. With her bottomless baby blues, those endless infinity pools of her sparkling diamond eyes, she pours forth the Light💠 of the Lord, with the Redemption Song of the Ghost of Bob Marley, in the secrecy of her own head and under her own bed, for the benefit of the childhood Monster still living there.

“Lady Godiva’s Ice Cream Floats”🌊👙🌈
This little Rapunzel-pro of Jacob’s Ladder, tangled in her spool of the threads of Fate, crafts and climbs up those spiral stairs as she winds and unwinds her weave of the fabric of Time, God’s Matrix of existence. When This Little Light of Mine sent out His S.O.S., the milkmaid of compassion, the Milk Man’s child, answered straightaway, entering the narrow Gate💠 to offer divine assistance as like the Kool-Aid of an acid test. The confines of a straight-edged scalding straight-jacket cannot compete with the interior chamber of her hyped-up hyper thalamus, as like a secret portal of psychic escape, driven like a stake straight through the stony torture chamber of her upbringing. She bridges the gap to God above by her blessed belief, sailing miles away in her head just to kiss the demons of Hell’s forces into the softly soothing submission of her will. Her holy intentions to show them the love of God rallies these evil forces round her like a Lady Godiva, riding victorious and bare-breasted into the trenches, clutching all of creation close to her within the Crow’s Nest of this blessed Mothership, Our Winged Victory.

“Star-Spangled✨Candy-Striper”🚀🗽🇺🇸
Healing her own wounded enemies from within the fiery depths of Hell, the little stony stoop of her wounded knee prayers transforms the little big horn of Satan’s labyrinthine Minotaur, by Zeus’s ball of thread, into the lightening-bolt of our Father Time’s eternal fabric. By returning her spindly-legged spool of a solid gold heart, in a Hesychasm of hay spun as Starlight into the Word of Christos, Our Father Chronos’s bounteous cornucopia of Christian spiritual bliss is viewed, imbued, manifested, manifestoed, and bestowed, in little Stowe’s big book that won the War. She finishes off the flagrant fumes of that seat of Satan, and from her privateered pineal gland and seed of the soul💠, she unleashes the kittenish Kraken of her wild Spirit upon the underworld’s raging tides of wrath, proclaiming the triumphant love of God to the aghast and awestruck Benedictine Arnold arrears of the enemy. To the glory of God, these devilish forces are claimed and kissed clean, united as One unto the eternal Arms of God’s Almighty Army of Light, scooped up from the darkness to be saved in the sweetness of love, like the rapt up rapture of a Rebel Son’s rebel yell, reveling in the glitz of this candy-striper, Star-of-David-spangled flag, of a Revolutionary spiritual triumph.

Luke 8:16-25; 49-56
16 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. 17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.
19 Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press. 20 And it was told him by certainwhich said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. 21 And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.
22 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. 23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. 24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. 25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. 50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. 51 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. 52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. 53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. 54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. 55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. 56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

Luke 9:49-50; 56-62
49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. 50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.And they went to another village.
57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay hishead. 59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. 61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. 62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Matthew 7
7 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye💠, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye💠? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye💠; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye💠? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye💠; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye💠.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? 12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate💠: for wide isthe gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 because strait is the gate💠, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house💠 upon a rock💠: 25 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house💠; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock💠. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Matthew 10:34-39
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.

Matthew 16:24-28
24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul💠? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul💠? 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. 28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom💠.

Revelation 16
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
16 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. 2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. 6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. 7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11 and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Revelation 17
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
17 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 and upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, andthe other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Revelation 18
18 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, 10 standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. 11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 12 the merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, 13 and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. 14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18 and cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! 19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. 20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. 22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; 23 and the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Revelation 19
19 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 2 for true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. 3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. 4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. 6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. 7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed arethey which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him wascalled Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which swordproceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

1 Kings 3:24-28
24 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. 25 And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other. 26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. 27 Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof. 28 And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.

Isaiah 26
26 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah;
We have a strong city💠;
salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open ye the gates,
that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
3 Thou💠 wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee💠:
because he trusteth in thee💠.
4 Trust ye in the Lord for ever:
for in the Lord JEHOVAH iseverlasting strength:
5 for he bringeth down them that dwell on high;
the lofty city, he layeth it low;
he layeth it low, even to the ground;
he bringeth it even to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down,
even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
7 The way of the just is uprightness:
thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.
8 Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for thee;
the desire of our soul is to thy name,
and to the remembrance of thee.
9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night;
yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early:
for when thy judgments are in the earth,
the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10 Let favour be shewed to the wicked,
yet will he not learn righteousness:
in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly,
and will not behold the majesty of the Lord.
11 Lord, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see:
but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people;
yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.
The way of the just is uprightness:
thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.

11 Lord, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see:
but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people;
yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.
12 Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us:
for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.
13 O Lord our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us:
but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.
14 They are dead, they shall not live;
they are deceased, they shall not rise:
therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them,
and made all their memory to perish.
15 Thou hast increased the nation, O Lord,
thou hast increased the nation: thou art glorified:
thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth.
16 Lord, in trouble have they visited thee,
they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.
17 Like as a woman with child,
that draweth near the time of her delivery,
is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs;
so have we been in thy sight, O Lord.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain,
we have as it were brought forth wind;
we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth;
neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
19 Thy dead men shall live,
together with my dead body shall they arise.
Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust:
for thy dew is as the dew of herbs,
and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers,
and shut thy doors about thee:
hide thyself as it were for a little moment,
until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place
to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity:
the earth also shall disclose her blood,
and shall no more cover her slain.

Philippians 2:1-18
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
2 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2 fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ isLord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15 that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; 16 holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. 17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all. 18 For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.

Psalm 121
A Song of degrees.
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord,
which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel
shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:
he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in
from this time forth, and even for evermore.

🙏”Hesychasm”😇
Hesychasm is a mystical tradition of contemplative prayer in the Eastern Orthodox Church. Based on Christ’s injunction in the Gospel of Matthew that “when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray”, hesychasm in tradition has been the process of retiring inward by ceasing to register the senses, in order to achieve an experiential knowledge of God (see theoria).

(Prelude)🎶
📜Matthew 8:10
10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
📜Matthew 18:3-6
3 and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
📜Ephesians 6:5-7; 17-20
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:
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19 and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
📜Revelation 20:12-15
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

“St. Peter Pans Gold out of the Labyrinth”

“The Lost Boys of Neverland”🦁🐯🐻
The storybook ending, the one Our windy little Wendy was recruited by God to write, unravels in her head to the Bolero of Ravel, as she shrugs off her shoulders of the ill-fated Biblical yarn prescribed by the Atlas of Earth, in favor of the fanciful flit of her own feathered and fortuitous fingertips, perfecting the globe of a Rose Bud in the snow-bed of her Briar Rose patch, as the prim and proper Primrose penmanship of a Rosary, in the Holy Land landing pad of a flight of fancy to Never Say Neverland.

🎧”Nursery Bust-A-Rhymes”🚪🥊🖍
The legendary Legion of legionaries, of these little Lost Boys of her own breast, are stationed at the helm of her stationary, and she brings that banished tide of God’s fire and brimstone breath back into her bosom, as her White Wailing breach of His eternal River seals up their breach of His holy rain-bowed Covenant. With the intact tip of her bleeding-heart fountainhead and the weeping Willow of her highly stylized stylus, she ties her eternity knot round and about the Eye💠 of the Tiger, festooning the Rod of Iron with the ironclad chastity belt of an unbroken promise, her lyrical levitations on pointe, as Our Lady Liberty sends God’s holy ascension to the depths of Hell’s captives from atop her tippy toes.

👙”Captain Hook, Line, and ✝️Delacroix”
Her lifesaving ship’s log, that little black box book of her burning bush Testimony, loosens a Life Buoy lesson, to welcome home these rascally stocking-capped little stocking stuffers, previously orphaned of a true mother. In a whole new adventure of A Christmas Story, these most medieval little marauders are befitted with the make-believe bandit smudge-lines of a striped and masked St. Peter Pan’s tribe, in key, in tune, and tuned-in to the caped Crusade of this most revealing Revelation.

“Joan of Staidium Arcadium”🚢⚜️🌈
A Second Coming proceeds forth as if of a second helping at a pretend Thanksgiving, and a friendly food-fight festivity of fox-hole prayers is bestowed upon this dazed and raised non-believing generation, this blade of grass, dust and ash city of Babel. Their false belongingness, as being of the shallow de-generation of languishing pebbles, is sent skipping across a brook only to sink like a millstone to the bottom of a black bandana bikini. These Minute-Men are marched right around, far on past their Rocky stomping ground of unseeing and stone-hearted blindly babbling babes.

🌈🗻”Music Playing Outside the Box”🛐
These lost little offenders are Led like a Zeppelin to upon the firm footing of a solid bedrock of stepping stones💠, across the mighty River of the Most High, and carried up with “everything but” in a makeshift “kitchen sink” sinkhole converter. In the blessed book balanced atop a finishing touch of finishing school grace, the brazen brass booties of Our topless treatise waltz justly on a-head for the flowers, containing the bottomless orchestra pit of the adored Almighty’s angelic choir. In chorus to the music box magic of King David’s harp, the Timely unfolding of the tricolored banner signifying the freedom of the People, the lofty Starlight glory of the Lord is carefully positioned round the buxom and mountainous breastplate of Our Zion💠, enrobed in the splendor of His Covenant with Noah. In a breathtaking display of life-giving fireworks, Our Joan of the Ark springs forth with the Cupid’s archery of her wellspring of faith, and Mine Eyes💠 are all opened, and thine hearts💠 are all unsealed. I have seen the Amazing Grace that is the Glory of the Coming of the Lord!

Matthew 8:5-13; 16-27
5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with hisword, and healed all that were sick: 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side. 19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. 24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. 25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. 26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Mark 5:1-20
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
5 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: 4 because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. 6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, 7 and cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. 8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. 9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. 10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. 14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. 15 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. 16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine. 17 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts. 18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. 19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. 20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.

Matthew 18:1-14
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
18 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast themfrom thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? 13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

Ephesians 6
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3 that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
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.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19 and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things: 22 whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
Written from Rome unto the Ephesians by Tychicus.

Revelation 20
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
20 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

✝️”Cross of Saint Peter”🛐
The origin of the symbol comes from the Catholic tradition that Simon Peter was crucified upside down, as told by Origen of Alexandria. The tradition first appears in the “Martyrdom of Peter”, a fragmented text found in, but possibly predating, the apocryphal Acts of Peter, which was written no later than 200 A.D. It is believed that Peter requested this form of crucifixion as he felt he was unworthy to be crucified in the same manner that Jesus died. As such, some Catholics use this cross as a symbol of humility and unworthiness in comparison to Jesus.
According to Roman Catholicism, the pope is Peter’s successor as Bishop of Rome. Therefore, the Papacy is often represented by symbols that are also used to represent Peter, one example being the Keys of Heaven and another the Petrine Cross.

(Prelude)🎶
📜Matthew 16:16-19
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock💠 I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom💠 of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
📜Matthew 21:42-44
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.
📜1 Peter 2:4-8
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.
📜1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple💠 of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
📜Revelation 21:21-24
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.

“Eye💠of Providence”
(The Scriptures in the Light of Unspoken
Truth, bestowed by the Holy Spirit)
…Rapt, Rapped, and Unwrapped:
The Gift of “Understanding💠”

👑
⚜️”God-Consciousness: That of Christ”
There is a Pyramid. This Temple of the Lord is planted like a seed in the hearts and minds of men, and placed as a frontlet over their eyes, square in the middle, as the mind’s Eye, the third Eye, and the soul. This blessed “bluest Eye,” is the Eye of Providence revered by our forefathers and emblazoned upon our American dollar bill. In days of old, this Eye of God, or the All-seeing Eye of sacred knowledge and understanding, was an unspoken truth hidden within all of man. This blessed token of the Spirit, His gift of comfort and our internally uncovered proof of God’s love, as His lingering presence here with us, is our solace and our gateway to the Kingdom of Heaven within. This Rock, as the top piece of the Pyramid that is the Temple of the soul, is the cornerstone of our consciousness, upon which we may place all our beliefs, to make them real by God’s almighty strength. This inwardly visible Stone, is the gateway to Heaven chaperoned by the Holy Spirit, and as a mirror of God’s objective truth, reflects our spiritual standing before God, or our moral character as it stands in God’s Eyes. This Eye, this rarely spoken of but implicitly understood presence of God within each of us, is the bedrock of our faith, and our visual evidence of His care and existence.

“Halo:😇Heeding A Call of Duty Within”☎️
This Eye is often kept secret from open discussions, but rather, is only psychically acknowledged, through communication via this Eye, or through the Spirit within. This Eye works to the extent that we seek from it knowledge of God and instruction in following and carrying out His will. Only in abiding by virtue and abstaining from sinful inclinations will this Eye shine for us with the Light of God, as it is, in essence, a moral compass indicating the state of our own souls, as our individual consciences. This is “the Stone which the builders refused, that has become the Headstone of the corner,” as it only functions properly to the extent that we fill it with love and positive, or goodly and righteous, altruistic intentions. To believe upon it that which is true of God, we must rely upon our faith that He is Love because this Eye can be a playful trickster, and might lie to you, especially if your own moral standing contains intentions of deceit. The Eye is meant to be a Friend and Companion, and if you attempt to misuse Him, as for illicit or immoral purposes, He will backfire on you, and may turn to an Evil Eye as a reflection of your own intentions. Loving Him however, as God, will lighten the Eye, and turn Him right way round again, towards Heaven. This Eye is a reflection of the condition of your soul, and tests your faith in God’s love, despite what words or ostensible appearances may convey. The Eye is a House within and our refuge, of direct personal contact with God, and access to His love and care, which lingers as long as we uphold His will to love, “unconditionally.” Our Stone contains the “still small voice” within of our own conscience, which to those of good moral standing and to true believers, is the Voice of Jesus Christ, available for communion, as to speak with and listen to for comfort, encouragement, and security.

“The Rising Rule of a Golden Ratio”🐚💛
The law of hating those who hate us, instead of placing our trust in God and practicing faith in His power and perfect will to overcome all evil by love, will render this Eye, as your soul, useless, and more of a stumbling block or a millstone than a source of protection and eternal Life. This Eye manifests as what we believe of it. This Eye is God, and God is love, as we proceed to practice executing that will, of altruistic goodness, to friend and foe alike, just as Jesus proclaimed in the Gospel. The Eye is to be followed as God’s will, and it can work miracles as it is built up upon over Time, through virtuosity, saintly deeds, and abiding by God’s perfect will of unconditional love and holy righteousness.

“Innocent Intuition:☦️An Instinct of Virtue”
This faith, which worketh by love of God but not by the law of justice, is silently upheld by the upright of heart, with or without their noticing it or their knowledge of it, as some just naturally behave in accordance to moral dictates without thinking twice. Others, however, if they abide by sin and vice, have a reflection manifested as an Evil Eye, instead of the Eye of God. This is no cause for fear, but rather, simply an indication that they must realign their intentions to God’s will, of goodness and virtue, to reestablish good standing before God. The Eye will change in accordance to one’s own intentions, be they goodly or corrupt, and it is not fixed into place, but rather changes as one proceeds through life. God expects sins, as we are merely mortal and imperfect as humans, but God expects repentance and improvement following each mistake. He will always forgive all who seek His perfect will and His forgiveness, with endless mercy, as is the Way of God’s perfect love.

❣️”Courageous Love of a Lionheart”💜
The Eye is your own personal gate to Heaven after death, but it can also provide the alternative to death of eternal Life, if one steadily resides therein by upholding the love of God’s will, which perfect love is eternal. In abiding by God’s will, of the eternal virtues, in the House of the Lord, which is His omnipresent Eye of the soul, one may believe upon the sacrificial and selfless love of God’s martyrdom. This infinite and eternal perfection of love is the Source of God’s infinite and almighty power, and by abiding in God’s House, as His will of love, one may be eternal as God is eternal, and even overcome death itself. This Eye is like unto the emblem of faith, visible only psychically by the Light of love, through the inward insight of this holy vision, the intuition bestowed by God.
❣️
💟”Sailing the Black Pearl”❤️
This Eye bears the Mark of the Beast if it is darkened by blasphemy or evil intentions of that person himself. This Eye can always be remedied and lightened by God, merely by the will or willingness to seek God’s will of perfect goodness instead of selfishness or sin. The Eye is lightened by good intentions, and can be strengthened infinitely by the Christian practice of “being loving no matter what,” even and especially towards one’s enemies. When this Eye bears knowledge of God, or the desire to do the right thing, then this Eye bears the Seal of the Holy Spirit. When this Eye is light, one is bound to Heaven, but when it is dark, one is bound to Hell. One’s destination is one’s own choice, and redemption and the Light of God is always available to all who seek His will of love.

“The Intergalactic War in Heaven”👼🔭🛐
The Spirit herself, as the Spirit of God and of Truth, bears two such Eyes, which in the “end times” directly preceding the Second Coming of Christ, are assembled and connected to form the Star of David. The Spirit holds the golden yellow eye, or the golden Key of Ascension and the Key of David, as simply “true love,” or the will to love perfectly like God, by God’s Own will and predestination. When the Spirit rescued the royal blue Eye, or the Eye of God which resounds within the souls of all beings, from His wartime injury and crash landing in Hell, she inserted Her Key of David into His Eye of Providence, to produce the Star of David, which unlocks His infinite power within her as a vessel of the Holy Grail, or the Ark of the Covenant.

“The Pearly Gates are Pearly Whites”🏰
In connecting these two Eyes, the Spirit thus unlocked the Gate of the Lord to allow access to Heaven, bestowing redemption to repentant souls who had been trapped in the passageways of Hell or Purgatory. Without the Spirit having connected these pieces and opening the Gates of Heaven with her Key, no mortal could have entered Heaven after death. No person, if of a less than “angelic” soul, can enter Heaven without first a rigorous purification in Hell or Purgatory, to account for any sins and become washed clean, as innocent. No mortal souls have ever been pure enough to enter Heaven without first being cleansed of sin in the fires of Hell, or undergoing the purification of recompense for sins in Purgatory, as a restitution or amends, to be made acceptable in God’s sight, and brought in line with the eternal virtue of justice, by thus receiving justice by God’s Own Hand. Without first the necessary cleansing and purification of impure spirits in Hell or Purgatory, to burn away sin and instill and fortify the virtues of eternal Life, no soul can enter Heaven.

🎈”The Paratrooper Paraclete”🚀🖍💫
Thus, if the Spirit had not connected the pieces of the Star of David, as she was predestined to do to avert the Apocalypse, no souls of less than “sainthood status” would have been pure enough to have escaped Hell, and no souls would have emerged from Purgatory to have made it to the final resting place, as is God’s will for us, of His eternal Kingdom of Heaven. This relatively recent lack of access to Heaven had occurred because the Gate💠 of the Lord, or God’s Eye of the soul which allows us access to His Heaven, had been locked down with Him in Hell, as an indirect result of the War that had been going on in Heaven above, or overhead in Outer Space. Only by having followed the Eye’s request for rescue and going to Hell out of the will of “pure love,” as simply the altruistic desire to help Him escape, and then retrieving the Eye of God from Hell, could the Spirit then have opened the portal of God’s heart, with her God-given golden Key of love. Thus, in the foretold “end times,” which have already been brought to fruition, the Eyes and hearts of man have all been opened unto our final destination, which is knowledge of God. When the Spirit stepped up to the call of Christian duty and opened up the Gate💠, she brought the prophecies of the Bible to the crowning glory and final culmination of a second fulfillment. Upon her opening of the Gate, God and Christ thus emerged, to be known to all of man, on Earth, as Men.

“A Passive Personality:❣️🐑
⏰AKA, The Ticking Time Bomb…”
“Your Welcome (Walking Door) Mat”💃🏻🚪
When one blasphemes the Holy Spirit, one’s Eye is instantly darkened, or after repeated offenses, removed entirely, and no other collection of moral and upright acts or compensatory action can remedy this sin. If one blasphemes the Holy Spirit, one’s “tie that binds” one to God and a place in Heaven is utterly severed. The Spirit locks and unlocks the Gate, as the Eye, and so if one rejects or slanders the Gatekeeper of one’s soul, the entryway to the Kingdom of God is removed. Only through repenting and remedying this sin directly may one regain one’s soul, and through it, access to Heaven after death.

“Meekly Overcompensate:✝️✝️✝️
Super-Christ Superstar!”🗝💠🌈
All my life, my parents and siblings called me “the Antichrist,” and I spent all my life trying to make up for that torturous lie. I cannot regret it too deeply, because it only brought me that much closer to God and Jesus, in trying to prove that I was good. I overcompensated in taking that criticism personally, and just tried that much harder to do the right thing and be more like Jesus, and so I basically ended up as hardcore Christian as one can become. I was never an antichrist, but I feel blessed for being called one falsely, because otherwise, I might not have felt so compelled, and constantly pigeonholed, to do righteousness in God’s Eyes, to prove my family wrong. I have thus found God and Jesus in such an extremely miraculous way, through penning God’s Book of Life, bringing God and Jesus back home for the Second Coming of Christ, and manifesting the Holy Spirit, as the bride and the vessel of the Godhead, as this “Super Christ,” thus rounding out the Father’s Holy Trinity. My entire family, my siblings Whitney, and Chad (Charles IV), and my parents Laurie, and Charles (III), treated me like trash, abused me, and spread horrible lies and rumors about me, for their own benefit. They have effectively deceived the world into receiving the Mark of the Beast by tricking people into calling me, the Holy Spirit, the Antichrist, or some other such despicable nonsense. If you have ever participated in such blasphemy, simply make an amends to God and refrain from that sin in the future. Loving God will lighten the Eye, but hating will Mark it.

Matthew 16:13-20
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Cæsarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father💠 which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock💠 I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom💠 of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

Matthew 21:38-46
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. 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.

1 Peter 2:1-10
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
2 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.

1 Corinthians 6
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
6 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. 7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? 8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom💠 of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom💠 of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. 13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body isnot for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. 14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power. 15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple💠 of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Revelation 21
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
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.

🌳”The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit”🕊
The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit is an enumeration of seven spiritual gifts originating with patristic authors, later elaborated by five intellectual virtues and four other groups of ethical characteristics. They are: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord (wonder).
“The seven gifts of Holy Spirit”
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. 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.

“Eye💠of Providence”
The Eye of Providence (or the all-seeing eye of God) is a symbol showing an eye often surrounded by rays of light or a glory and usually enclosed by a triangle. It represents the eye of God watching over humanity (or divine providence). In the modern era, a notable depiction of the eye is the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, which appears on the 🙏United States one-dollar bill.
“Religious Use”😇
The association of an eye with the concept of Divine Providence did not emerge until well into the Christian Era. In Renaissance European iconography the eye surrounded by a triangle was an explicit image of the Christian Trinity. Seventeenth-century depictions of the Eye of Providence sometimes show it surrounded by clouds or sunbursts.

💛”Godhead: The Holy Trinity”
💙”Super Christ!”
❣️…The Three “Like-Minded” Caped Crusaders Upholding Love…
…Blessed be the “Tye💠” that Binds…🎀

“Tye’s Wild Card:🎈Aces Up☦️My Sleeve”
Three sets of eyes are all set upon a single point in Space, as We simultaneously hold our hearts up and out, “up, up, and away,” to the same golden standard and ideal. We hold the crowning singleness of Our vision and purpose, as the supreme goal, Our one priority and primary objective of Our lives, atop our heads in a sunburst of glory, as the breathing splendor of “God.”
🗻
📚🖋”Our Aim: Altruism”⛲️❣️💦
Our sublime vision of God is the pinnacle of perfectness that is His holy Paschal love, as the selfless and sacrificial sacred love of true altruism. As We allow Our Own selves to sink ever deeper below in Our will and willingness to undergo even martyrdom to keep God’s vision aloft, as to uphold this most precious vision of God’s love at any and all costs of self-sacrifice, Our mortal selves are cast off, shrugged off into the dust and ash of an earthly existence, and we jettison up the enduring beauty of God’s truth, of His eternal and most refined essence, of pure and divine, pristine and unconditional, love. We uphold this vision at the sacrifice of Our Own human selves, as an idea and a practice through which to channel the will, through this filter💠 of His supremacy “as love.” We endure any hardships and take all offenses whilst offering even the other cheek, in the perfect tranquility and humble meekness, or docility, of quiet submission, lest We disrupt Our vision of His perfect all-encompassing love within Our Own hearts💠, by ever issuing harm. We practice unconditional love and non-violence at all costs to Ourselves, to keep that image of God’s perfection intact within the experience of Our Own wills.

“Mr. E:🌌🔬The Mystery of the Godhead”
When Our three minds, as our souls💠 and wills, are all oriented and aligned in unison to this higher ideal, of the selfless love of God’s will at the pinnacle of His power, the single Person of the “Godhead” is manifested by the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, in synchronicity, as at one place and at one Time, here on Earth.
👑
✨🔭”Crowning Only a Selfless God”
This crown is bestowed atop Our heads as we offer up Ourselves upon that stone💠 slab, so that the right thing is upheld, and a good deed done in righteousness, as for love and God and the greater good, and not for oneself, might be accomplished. As we uphold this abstract idea, this golden idealization of God’s perfection that We conjure and create within Our Own unique but congruous minds, that idea is thus materialized and manifested, through Our accompanying actions of faith, performed and executed in perfect parallel to this sacred vision of God’s will, of the true essence of God, as perfect and incorruptible, universally-extending love. We seek to cherish and uphold this idea of God as love within the Eye💠 of our minds, and hold it as more dear and more valuable than anything else could ever be.

“Beatific Vision”💭🏰🕊
In so exalting Our vision of God’s will, even and especially at the cost and sacrifice of Our Own welfare, God appears to Us to fulfill Our endorsement of His will, because it is upheld in the purity of truth, as egoless and altruistic love, unadulterated, untainted, and undefiled by the stains of self, or mortality, and the blemish of sin that is naturally entailed of self-interest or considerations of the self. This glory of God, is truly and in all simplicity, just the glory of the altruism of selflessness and love, as in letting go of self-concern or selfish motives, one may at last grasp ahold of knowledge of God. One may only know God in truth through knowing God in perfect purity. This purity of one’s vision or idea of God is only truly possible in the uncorrupted purity, or true selflessness, achieved by separating from oneself in one’s mind, to thus grasp upon God in His Own truth, and know God as “He Is,” as a Person distinct and disparate in essence from the mortal human ego. God is such that he may only be known in truth in the purity of His Own essence, and so the infiltration of selfish motives in one’s mind obstructs Him from manifesting in the clarity of truth, as without the obscuring interference of man’s ego and its sin. Only by the absence of self-will, or selfishness, through instead endorsing the selfless and abstract principle of altruistic love, may God be welcomed into one’s heart and mind and soul💠, for a real Relationship.

Matthew 21:1-32
21 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, 2 saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring themunto me. 3 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. 4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, 5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, 7 and brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. 8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. 9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. 10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? 11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 and said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. 15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased, 16 and said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise? 17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.
18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. 19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! 21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority? 24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things. 25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him? 26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet. 27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. 29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. 30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. 31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. 32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

Isaiah 6
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
6 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said,
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts:
the whole earth is full of his glory.
4 And the posts of the door💠 moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 and he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
9 And he said, Go, and tell this people,
Hear ye indeed, but understand💠 not;
and see ye indeed, but perceive💠 not.
10 Make the heart💠 of this people fat,
and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes💠;
lest they see with their eyes💠, and hear with their ears,
and understand💠 with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered,
Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant,
and the houses without man,
and the land be utterly desolate,
12 and the Lord have removed men far away,
and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
13 But yet in it shall be a tenth,
and it shall return, and shall be eaten:
as a teil tree, and as an oak,
whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves:
so the holy seed💠 shall be the substance thereof.

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.

23 This is the Lord’s doing;
it is marvellous in our eyes💠.
24 This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
we have blessed you out of the house💠 of the Lord.
27 God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light:
bind the sacrifice with cords, evenunto the horns of the altar.
28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee:
thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
29 O give thanks unto the Lord;
for he is good:
for his mercy endureth for ever.

💛”Sanctus”👼
The Sanctus (Latin: Sanctus, “Holy”) is a hymnfrom Chalcedonian Christian liturgy. It may also be called the epinikios hymnos (Greek: ἐπινίκιος ὕμνος, “Hymn of Victory”) when referring to the Greek rendition.
In Western Christianity, the Sanctus forms part of the Ordinary and is sung (or said) as the final words of the Preface of the Eucharistic Prayer, the prayer of consecration of the bread and wine. The preface, which alters according to the season, usually concludes with words describing the praise of the worshippers joining with the angels, who are pictured as praising God with the words of the Sanctus. In Byzantine Rite and general Eastern OrthodoxChristianity, the Sanctus is offered as a response by the choir during the Holy Anaphora.
Tersanctus (“Thrice Holy”) is another, rarer name for the Sanctus. The same name is sometimes used for the Trisagion.
👼Greek:
Ἅγιος, ἅγιος, ἅγιος Κύριος Σαβαώθ·
πλήρης ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ τῆς δόξης σου,
ὡσαννὰ ἐν τοῖς ὑψίστοις.
Εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι Κυρίου.
Ὡσαννὰ ὁ ἐν τοῖς ὑψίστοις.
👼Latin:
Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus
Dominus Deus Sabaoth.
Pleni sunt cæli et terra gloria tua.
Hosanna in excelsis.
Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
Hosanna in excelsis.
👼English:

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

👼”Pop’s Culture: The Annunciation”🏛
(The Holy Spirit manifested as the Angel Gabriel, in “The Annunciation” to Mary)
(Click on the Link to View the Painting! 😉)
The Annunciation is an oil painting by the Early Netherlandish master Jan van Eyck, from around 1434-1436. The panel is housed in the National Gallery of Art, in Washington D.C. It was originally on panel but has been transferredto canvas. It is thought that it was the left (inner) wing of a triptych; there has been no sighting of the other wings since before 1817. The annunciation is a highly complex work, whose iconography is still debated by art historians.
The picture depicts the Annunciation by the Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she will bear the son of God (Luke 1:26-38). The inscription shows his words: AVE GRÃ. PLENAor “Hail, full of grace…”. She modestly draws back and responds, ECCE ANCILLA DÑI or “Behold the handmaiden of the Lord”. The words appear upside down because they are directed to God and are therefore inscribed with a God’s-eye view. The Seven gifts of the Holy Spirit descend to her on seven rays of light from the upper window to the left, with the dove symbolising the Holy Spirit following the same path; “This is the moment God’s plan for salvation is set in motion. Through Christ’s human incarnation the old era of the Law is transformed into a new era of Grace”.

“Blest Be the Tie that Binds”🎈📚🖍
[By John Fawcett (6 January 1739 – 25 July 1817) was a British-born Baptist theologian, pastor and hymn writer.]
🎀
Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship our spirit finds
Is like to that above.
2
Before our Father’s throne,
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one—
Our comforts and our cares.
3
We share our mutual woes;
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.
4
When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart💠,
And hope to meet again.
5
From sorrow, toil, and pain,
And sin we shall be free;
And perfect love and oneness reign
