WISDOM (Choosing Life)


Image result for free christian pictures of all races in harmony

A week after Election day, Facebook posts blare crisis headlines of rioting protesters across our nation. My heart sinks regarding the senselessness . I start to weep, grieving for the hard-working business people who would have to bear the financial brunt of the damage to their businesses.. I have never been able to deal well with fits of rage, anger and rebellion. As I pondered our national crisis, I thought of the verse,

The fear (reverence of the Lord) is the beginning of all wisdom.

I was raised by an old-school, Puerto-Rican, Catholic Father. Despite his overly harsh disciplining, I can truly say, that now, as a grown woman, I am grateful for the most important attributes my father taught me. Number one, was serving God in Faith, number two, being resourceful, and three was being honorable. Daddy did not tolerate laziness, rebellion or faithlessness. .His own mother cherished and instilled the same values and raised all her nine sons and daughters to embrace these noble characteristic. In Puerto-Rico, at that time, with a disabled husband, she managed to thrive under  great financial hardship and the stress of her husband’s  Tuberculous. Now, I hope I don’t appear superior to others, but there is much to be said to ask for the wisdom to choose life! Life is not  the circumstances whcih affect us, but how we respond. Our Lord Jesus said,  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly. John 10:10. KJV

Wisdom is the key element and I love how the book of proverbs, (on of my favorite Biblical books, as well as Doctor Ben Carson’s) brims over with the essentials to prosperous and contented living. I can attest to heeding the guidelines of the book of proverbs as to the formula of victoring (and thriving) over the many trials and traumas of my life. I have also had to tearfully watch many of my friends and loved ones reject the wisdom of Proverbs and have suffered much misery and defeat.

Seeing all the mindless, brutal assassinations of our policemen, frenzied violence, destruction of property and hatred towards those who have a differing opinion, I weep and mourning for what could be. Many have embraced a deluded and self-centered entitlement mindset and have truly lost the ability to ascertain wise living. Most fault goes to many in leadership and authority. They misguide the people through their own deception, illogic and greed for the almighty dollar. As I elaborated in a former blog, many have lost their moral compass and thus are spiraling outward into the raging waves of chaos. This is what America is experiencing today.

So how can we ascertain what is right and what is wrong? First, we need to research and learn from history and past leaders, (most important, the life of Christ, of which untold countless archeological discoveries prove His existence). History is a great teacher, but sadly, many refuse to ackowledge the horrific results of murderous dictators who have imposed their brutal ideologies, ( Socialism & communism for emaple) upon their people. Sadder still, are college professors, ( who are supposed to be the elite in education) who are the most uninformed and/or deluded. Delusion is a dangerous thing for any nation or people seeking enlightenment.

Through my seeking, reasoning with God and my countless personal expereinbces with  people from all walks of life , I have found that only God’s truth is the righteous compass. Some may say the Bible contradicts itself and that God is capricious and vengeful. Many things are frightening, damning or unloving, but one thing is absolute, God is love. We may lash out at him for killing whole populations, (Sodom and Gomorrah) . but if we do our research and study,  revelation will come. History will always tell her story.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good:

…And it was good… Everything that God does is good. He is love…and what is love? .. love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. No one coming under the influence of these attributes would be fruitless or non-productive.  And if anyone has any sense or wisdom at all, they would see that  violent, angry demonstrators are in no way contributing anything of any value or goodness to society.  More than ever, today, we need wise mentors with divine strategies to solve the issue of racial division and strife. This is a glorious time where God’s people is the answer and where their role is to outreach with compassion. We need more American ministries to work in the urban and inner cities areas to duplicate what  Reverend  Graham, Pastor Jentezen and Pastor Jim Robison, (among many others)  are doing

Let’s take a look at some of the wonderful Christian ministries, (who have helped victims of disaster) rebuild their lives and produced the precious harvest of productivity, entrepreneurship and creativity in their benefactors..

Christianity is good.

Pastor Jentezen Franklin’s team has brought great relief and joy to Haiti.

Billy Graham’s son, Franklin Graham has also lead his amazing team of relief outreach workers worldwide

Jim and Betty Robison are another Christian couple who have brought relief to many thousands of orphans, single moms and victims of sex-trafficking all across the globe. Their effort and the support of their partners have taken many our of the depths of poverty, starvation and hopelessness to prosperity and peace..

These are the faces of God. These are the faces of wisdom, humility and love.
This is good and this is God.

The aforementioned are in extreme contrast to leaders whose actions and decisions have caused their people to suffer torment, pestilence, starvation and horrific death.

Socialism-Communism is bad

Here is the infamous legacy of another Latin American dictator, one of the most cruel, Augusto Pinochet,

http://listverse.com/2014/01/23/10-disturbing-facts-about-latin-americas-cruelest-dictator/       And most sobering of all is this list of the deadliest leaders of all. http://www.thedailybeast.com/galleries/2011/10/21/the-20th-century-s-deadliest-dictators-photos.html    The annals of history has clearly proven that Socialism-Sommunism does nothing but enslave, depress and kill the spirits of the citizens who are forced to live under them. Notice that the regimes of these brutal dictators were Communist, Fascist or militarian and notice how millions upon millions were massacred! College professors, their students and every American citizen needs to take note of the difference between socialism-communism and the liberty that we enjoy here in America. Liberty of good. Liberty is from God and liberty came from God’s wisdom because it nurtures, benefits and brings life, health and prosperity to him who lives under it.

These aforementioned leaders’ legacies were the opposite of Jesus Christ’s teachings of “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.Mat 5:44 and “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Mat Mat 5:9

Wisdom knowing the benefits and abiding prosperously in the God-ordained mandate of democracy-freedom. The world needs a true revelation of godly wisdom and only then can all this rage, anarchy and destruction end. This would also apply to individual who are at war with themselves: being possessed by inner demons of lust, substance abuse, self-hate, fear, rage, unforgiveness and bitterness. Many good people also need to a divine revelation regarding their sonship-daughtership to their loving heavenly father. This absence, (of  Father-son, Father-daughter bond) is  the crux of the angst, alienation and hopelessness many demonstrators are expressing.  The church needs to understand this and implement a healing-transformative outreach!.

May we ask our higher power to reveal those things which are destroying us and after laying aside our pride, we receive the revelation of self-love,  healing and father’s transcend ant love. May we we all educate ourselves by visiting the annals of history and especially, the Bible)  and it’s results so we can ascertain the path to wise.

WHAT NOW?


WHAT NOW?
The Election Of Donald J Trump as our 45 President
I woke up to the glorious news, that our new president is Donald J Trump.

Trump’s victory is monumental shift in the spiritual, political and economical atmosphere of our nation. Why? Because the United States has plummeted to the depths of depravity and staggering decay. You may ask, how is that so?

First I want to say that I write this expository not as a republican, but as a devote daughter and servant of Jehovah God most High, the Creator of the universe. I aspire to walk in the ways of His Son, Jesus Christ and His commandments .I am first a Christian, than a musician and then a woman.

Three years ago, I was immersed in my career and talent as a performer-recording artist. My life was centered around music, learning songs, getting my other band-mates prepared for the next gig, enlarging our fan base, promotion and booking gigs. Most of us adults have our own agenda or itinerary for our busy lives. Many adults are also parents, so most of their energy and time goes into their children and the kids affairs. In a nutshell, very few of us, (except many journalists and reporters) are adequately informed about the details of the various national ills, (and there are many, including abortion, child molestation, sex-trafficking, pornography, lawlessness, violent protesting, fraud, occultic influences, police assassination, racial division, and many more. My heart breaks for the diminishment of His creation because of deceived and demonic leadership. One only has to read the old testament prophets accounts of what happens to nations who surrender to rebellion, debauchery and disobedience. Truly, the mainstream population refuses to have anything to do withe honoring and keeping God’s commandment. I’ve seen many examples of downright disrespect towards Jehovah God by YouTube liberals, atheists and democrats would spit in God’s face if they could. I fear and cry for their souls!

The Dystonia condition which I was diagnosed with in 2006 worsened, but with its worsening came an urgent unction to pray and seeks God’s face. With that seeking, came His directives to address the crisis and ills plaguing our nation and which was drawing us closer and closer to the abyss of divine destruction,. God cannot tolerate sin and it seems very few (including professing Christian) have any desire to understand the mechanics and consequences of rebellion and disobeying His commandment.

I want to point out that my understanding regarding God’s perfect plan and mandate for His people in America came from the burden and weakness of enduring this Dystonia battle. Though it has been a daunting struggle each day, I must now consider it a blessing in disguise because it has established in me the calling of intercessor. It is in the war room that I find God’s strength to travail for the souls of men, women and children before the hammer of judgment comes down. .

I desire to see (through His wise eyes) and partner with Him to heal humanity from sin and depravity. My blood curdles in grief as I read about or watch the videos of the street massacre, violence and terrorist attacks here and abroad. Sadder yet, is the deceived responses of our professing brothers and sisters who are cussing and cursing Donald Trump. I wonder who has blinded their eyes?

Rest assured, those who are tweeting ” “Assassinate Donald “will be held accountable to God. Haters of Donald are haters of God because Jehovah God has chosen him to be His King Cyrus for America. God help those deceived who are thinking to do harm to our new president. God told us in the Bible, “Touch not mine anointed” Donald Trump was anointed by God for such a time as this. “Be not mocked, God will hold accountable. and woe to anyone who despises who God has appointed.

Here is a message for scoffers, God-haters, Donald J Trump Haters and haters of Gods commandment. For anyone ignorant of God’s commandment, I will give you a list of what Biblical righteous is and how it brings God’s blessing.

1. Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not murder. The murder of the innocent unborn since the passing of Roe VS Wade in 1973 is one main reason God has to judge. Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer. It’s been revealed that the Clintons and their circle has been involved in child sex-trafficking and occultist satanic rituals. This is an abomination to God!

2. Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Are most of the leaders, politicians and citizens walking justly or showing mercy? The murder of our police officers is certainly not showing mercy and neither are the violent threats by the Black Lives Matter entity. Violence and retaliation is the opposite of what Jesus Christ, the Messiah taught. He said we are to forgive and pray for our enemies. Mat 5:44 How can the leaders of anarchist groups expect God’s blessing on their hatred. It’s not going to happen.

Most of the American people have lost their direction and the ability to discern between good and evil because their spiritual compass has been damaged by demonic influences and strongholds. Jesus gave us a simple guideline as to how to deduce a righteous person or leader. You check their fruits.  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control . Gal 5:22.

If a person or leaders person exhibits bad fruit most of the time, they are unrighteous. The acts of the flesh are sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry, sorcery; hatred, discord, jealousy, rage; rivalries, divisions, factions, Galatians 5 19&20. Any moral and sensible person would clearly discern that the Black Lives Matter (and any other violent group including ISIS, Hamass, Neo-Nazi groups and the like) group is ruled by anger, hatred and unforgiveness. Why would the American people support any candidate or leaders who has strong ties to the Muslim leaders who support Sharia Law? Obviously, many of our brethren are very uninformed, ignorant or just don’t care to do their research and educate themselves about righteousness and liberty. It is astounding to me the ignorance and stupidity of many of our college students and  professors who  support socialism! They should go to Cuba or Venezuela if they love socialism that much. And remember to take extra toilet paper because the people can’t  get it!

Too many of us are immersed in our own, small world.  I was certainly that way  five years ago.  I’ve spent thousands of reviewing t articles and videos of crisis-laden nations and cultures.  Many of us have no idea of the suffering and hopelessness  crushing citizens living under communist regimes.  Freedom of religion, freedom to defend themselves and entrepreneurship is denied. Under Sharia law, women are the victims of great abuse and suffering. Their husbands are allowed to beat them, they  suffer genital mutilation and not allowed to drive. A far cry from the democracy of the United States of America!

3. Work is good and the heartbeat of  a healthy American economy. Free entitlements also seem to be the deciding factor for voting democrat. Since when is the government  responsible for supporting the needy and especially able-bodied men who don’t want to work?

The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” 2 Thes 3:10  Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Tim 5:8  God ordained work,  Adam and Eve were required to tend and keep the garden.  Support from the church was for certain widows who passed the criteria of lifelong service and godliness. The bottom line, history has proven that Socialism doe not work in the long run and nations who adopted it have failed miserably and put their citizens in dire straits. That is a fact.

God has given His people a great and merciful reprieve and we must be diligent in redeeming the time to bring in the harvest of souls. Our parents and grandparents slacked off in their calling to be the salt of America, so now we must take the Holy baton and run for the finish line.   May we pray for President Trump to seek the counsel of many advisors and that he will humble himself to God’s guidance. Here is where the saints must commit to strong intercession on his behalf in order that Father grants us the glory of a massive harvest of souls. Here is where we can love and support the refugees with Christ’s love.. Here is the opportunity for God to endue His people with new strategic solutions for the support of veterans,  the homeless, our unborn and their pregnant, unwed mothers. Their needs to be education and rehabilitation for boys and men to respect and honor girls and women. They need to know how disgraceful it is to see females as nothing but  entertainment for their pleasure!  Date rape, child molestation arises because of a disrespect for  the female race..We girls and women must also erect  strong boundaries regrading our sexuality and identity. Here is where parents, teachers as well as law enforcement must work together to  establish guidelines for respectful behavior.

We truly have our work cut out for us!. When pastors and leaders get the revelation that they need to teach the people how be properly and powerfully equipped for spiritual warfare, America will be a safer and more blessed nation. Demonization of even the godly is becoming more common because of dabbling with the occult and witchcraft. Satan will try to access any toe-hold to our spirit, so we must be diligent to guard our hearts, eyes and minds. We must not even take a sneak peek at pornographic images on our TVs, computers and magazines.

And so my brothers and sister abiding in Christ, we will have the victory May we be totally devoted to God’s commends and His righteous precepts and we will be blessed.

If you do not know why catastrophe has befallen America,. God told Moses:: in Deuteronomy 30

15 See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. 16 For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

17 But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.

Nothing could be more clear as what pleases God and . If you do not agree with His command, than you’ll have to wait for the day when we will stand before Christ as the Bema seat. Here we will be judged for what we have done  whether good or evil in our lives.

And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.
Revelation 20:12

May you choose life, so you can live and be blessed. Amen.
