Love for All

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Colossians 1:3-4   We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love [which ye have] to all the saints,

How would you like to be known by your Love for all?  Do you have such a reputation?  Think about it, what do people know you for?  How would they describe you?  Many of us are legends in our own minds.  Are you willing to help others when it is inconvenient?  Are you willing to serve when called upon?  When you see the weak, do you look  for ways to lift them up?

Soon we will be opening up website for people to respond to the “call” for the Kingdom is at hand.  While the world around us in turmoil and headed for economic destruction, Our Heavenly Father does not sit passively by without a plan.  HE has been preparing a group of people for such a time as this.  These people have been patiently waiting and preparing for the fullness of their calling.  They have moved from a life of immaturity in their ideas and actions to a life in full submission to the Word of Our Heavenly Father.  When the call comes, who will respond?

Will people respond as the rich ruler of Luke 18, Matthew 19, and Mark 10?  Here we have three witnesses of this particular passage.  I suspect Our Heavenly Father wanted to make a very specific point that could not be rationalized away by our ego.  Worldly wealth will be a stumbling block to inheriting eternal life:

Mark 10:21   Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

Jesus LOVED him!  Do you think Our Heavenly Father would have you sell everything and give so that you could become one of the poor?  I  think not.  Jesus never walked around in lack and poverty.  Jesus was revealing what was in the young man’s heart- greed.  The young man knew the Law.  He had head knowledge of the Commandment to Love thy neighbor as yourself but he would not live the words he had memorized.  The young man’s calling had been one of stewardship and acquisition of wealth.  Do you think that his gifts and callings would cease once he responded to Jesus’ request?  I would suggest that upon completion of that call to Love, he would have been given stewardship of much greater magnitude.

In 1987, Our Heavenly Father  gave me a vision that “a group of Christian businessmen would fund the End-time Gospel”.  I was young and naïve at the time.  Just as Joseph was given a vision which he did not fully comprehend, I had no idea of all that would transpire before the fruition of the vision.  Little did I know that much revelation was needed before the vision could take place.  Little did  I know that my heart was not ready to embrace such a vision and that I was not yet equipped to be an active player of the vision.  Knowledge, skill, wisdom, and understanding were all needed before the vision could take place.  Is this the year for the vision to begin manifestation?  Jesus issued a “call” to the rich young ruler to respond.  He failed to act according to all he had learned.  He had no faith in the very presence of the Son of GOD.  How will you respond when you hear the Call?

This weekend the network news magazines were focusing on the Gay and Lesbian political issue.  I have no comment on the political issue.  Our Heavenly Father created every man and woman on earth and HE Loves them all.  My views are intended to align with Biblical Principles for that is the framework of my belief system.  I purpose to base my actions on the revelations I have received through Scripture and direct communication with My Heavenly Father.  My belief system is constantly evolving as my eyes are opened to greater and deeper revelation.  Maturity is realizing that you don’t have all the revelations yet and some new revelation may dispel earlier beliefs.

Most everyone looks at this issue of Gays and Lesbians and relates it to the story of Sodom in Genesis.  Gomorrah was equally judged with Sodom.  Gomorrah comes from the root word with one of its meanings “to manipulate, deal tyrannically with”.  It is used twice as the English word “merchandise”.

The American Economic system is the epitome of Gomorrah.  It did not start out that way but now it is in full force.  The investment banks continue to manipulate Congress with huge donations.  Politicians manipulate voters with the media’s help.  Corporations manipulate consumers attempting to extract every last dime out of their pockets.  It has become a system of adversaries.  You are  always defending your own interests because everybody else is trying to manipulate away your assets from you.  Having been in the tax system for over 40 years, I can tell you that deductions were eliminated with the justification of offsetting the change with lower taxes only to later raise the taxes without reinstating those deductions.  In the end, those actions translated to a higher tax rate.  Manipulation is everywhere.  In the Court system, the best attorney manipulates the Law to further his purpose (and pocketbook).  I have been in several consumer class action suits over the years without personal consent.  American Airlines attempted to rewrite their rewards program (as I recall) and in doing so members would lose earned miles.  A law firm took up the case and made millions in legal fees.  I received a discount coupon if I spent more than xxx dollars.  Let me see, who was the winner and loser in this deal?  This “sanctioned” manipulation has infiltrated the entire economy.  If you have been with a cable company for any length of time you are probably paying too much.  Their modus operandi is to raise your rates slowly while giving new customers better deals and rates.  If you call in, they transfer you to their “loyalty” or “VIP” department and after threatening to move your account,  they will lower your rate for twelve months.  The process starts all over again.  Pawn shops exploit the desperate.  They seem to be able to get away with charging over 30% to those who can least afford it.  And we all  worry about saving a nickel at the gas pump?

Gomorrah received the same judgment as Sodom.  Our Heavenly Father did not distinguish between sins of the flesh and the sins of exploitation.  It does not bode well for the U.S. for it appears that there are many similarities.  Let the righteous remain steadfast during the coming times of judgment.  It may just save your city. 

Healing by Love

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

Matthew 8:16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick,

How was Jesus able to heal all that were sick?  HE did it by Love.  Jesus told us the He and Our Heavenly Father are One and we Know that GOD is  Love.  We also know that with Love being the primal characteristic of Our Heavenly Father, everything HE created was based from a Love perspective and must respond to Love.  The human body was created out of a motivation of Love and anything that causes dysfunction will respond to Love and will immediately return back to its original design.

Why  didn’t everyone respond to Love and accept healing when Jesus was willing to heal them?  We have a choice in the matter.  Love demands a choice.

I observed my wife being tested with the EDS (electro-dermal screening) device a few years back.  Her constitution interfered with the device’s ability to test her electrical system.  Her emotional state overpowered her physiology.  Her constitutional state had to be “balanced” for 24 hours  before the device could  test her various energy meridians.  This is a perfect example of the spirit and soul being superior to the body.  We have been led to believe that the body is separate and when something negative happens to it, only orthodox medicine can return it to normal.  I believe otherwise.

Thus physiology is at the lowest level of a person’s hierarchy.  Spirit, then soul, then the body.  The higher levels are designed to control the lower levels.  If your spirit is week, then your soul will strengthen and you will submit to the characteristics of your soul.  If your soul is weak also, then you will submit to the body’s cravings.  This is a very simple view of what is truly more complex.  As you build up your spirit, it takes command.  As you build up your intellect. it wants to control.  If you focus only on building your body, it will demand attention to satisfy its needs.

Love is in the restoration business.  I have observed that the EDS technician gets the best results when the technician is motivated by Love.  We often make attempts to segregate the spiritual impact when working with technology.  However when we are dealing with biological subjects, Love must be taken into account.  The EDS technology will not help a person who has the root of bitterness.  The state of that person will prevent the electrical meridians from producing reliable results.  If the person prays and removes the root of bitterness, then the electrical system will respond normally.

If you are expecting technology to help in biological areas, you must consider the higher states of the individual.  Why do some people heal faster than others?  Toxins in body and/or toxins in the spirit.  Toxins will interfere with restoration.  The body is designed to heal itself, the body is designed to live forever.  We can promote that reality by walking in Love.

Gratitude is the Key to the Heart

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Psalm 100:4  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, [and] into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, [and] bless his name.

As some of you know I was cycling at noon on Wednesday and was hit by a company van turning right as I was crossing the street in the crosswalk.  Though he hit me with the front of his vehicle, fortunately I was thrown to the right, away from the wheels.  My bike was not so lucky.  He dragged it underneath for 25 feet before he stopped.  It’s toast.  A former EMT and a student nurse were the first to arrive on the scene for which I’m grateful.  Roughly 36” further into the crosswalk and I would have suffered the same fate as the bike.  The man was not paying attention.  I have no anger or malice towards him, he is only one of many drivers who are distracted while driving. 

I am grateful to Our Heavenly Father for that 36” differential.  He continued to accelerate after he hit me and could have sucked me under the vehicle.  I landed on my right shoulder and fractured the scapula (shoulder blade) and have abrasions up and down the right side.  I was wearing a helmet so there were no head injuries.  After I arrived to the emergency room by ambulance, the ER doctor had x-rays taken of my shoulder, chest, and right leg.  I was glowing afterwards.  Later, he ordered a cat scan since the shoulder break often punctures the lung.  Thankfully there was no kitty litter close by.

I received a tetanus shot and effectively had a physical.  The lifetime of exercise paid off and the doctor was impressed with my condition.  Yesterday, Pam took me to the surgeon and he indicated that I would not need surgery since my ball and socket were still in alignment.  Four weeks of restricted arm movement, then four weeks of physical therapy were prescribed.  Since I am left-handed, I can still maneuver reasonably well.  I appreciate all the prayers from family and friends.

Several of us have been in life-threatening situations.  In the aftermath, I think about how grateful I am for what Our Heavenly Father has done for me.  We tend to take some things for granted when we have not been challenged.  For now, I cannot tie my own shoes.  Bummer!  I am a lovin’ those flip flops.  I encourage you to stop and express your gratitude to Our Heavenly Father.  No matter what your circumstances are, they could be worse in a split second.  As we focus on maintaining our fellowship with Our Heavenly Father, HE will protect us from those fatal events.  I am thankful to live another day.

Gold Standard now in view

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

We’re at 22% unemployment based on raw government statistics.  This number includes discouraged workers who can’t find a job.  The government’s widely reported unemployment 8.1% rate excludes many discouraged workers who have yet to find a job.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is also misleading.  The CPI impacts cost of living adjustments for Social Security recipients thus if it is underreported, the government saves money and the recipients is robbed of needed increases to make ends meet.  Disposable income is not growing and the debt crisis continues to plague the housing market.  Hyperinflation may come to a reality in 2014.

Evidence is accumulating that the current economic thinking is flawed.  The Federal Reserve manages by looking through the rearview mirror.  They create inflation (money supply  growth) and it takes time to evolve into price inflation of goods and services we purchase.  Directed attempts to bypass the natural cycles of expansion and compression have failed.  Misunderstanding the most fundamental aspects of life are now creating an expected, deepening recession.

More countries are moving towards “bartering” directly with other countries.  This direction will ultimately move towards a gold standard.  Investment firms currently ignore unexpected risks aka swan events.  Ignoring these risks allow these firms to greater leverage their assets at the same time create a greater risk of collapse.  Failure to allocate risks of swan events will ultimately expose the investment firm to be a part of systemic collapse similar to the 2008 meltdown.  The gold standard would curtail such risky positions.

This move to bartering will ultimately move the globe back to the gold standard.  The day of the U.S. Dollar being the preferred global currency is fading away at a rapid rate.  James Rickard in his book “Currency Wars” poses the scenario that other economic powers will use a gold standard against the U.S. in economic terms.  Economic warfare by Russia, China, and/or India may promote such a path.  Investors will then be put in a position of deciding between un-backed U.S. Government Securities and gold-backed instruments.  At a minimum investors will diversify and increase the demand for gold.  The writing is appearing on the wall.

Reviewing the Big Picture in the Current System

Friday, May 4th, 2012

Those in control of the current economic system would have us all believe that life is good and the current system is in recovery.  Mass psychology manipulation is at work.  Investors are frustrated with 0% interest rates.  The $54 Trillion in U.S. debt will come home to roost for the piper must be paid.  Global population expansion will demand more energy and commodities.  Until the current system is replaced with the Kingdom economy, gold will increase in value and oil prices will rise.  There will be unintended consequences from the past decisions to borrow and leverage sovereign balance sheets.  Europe has not solved any of its problems and their bond yields reflect this reality.  The U.S. debt has had a reprieve due to the European debt focus.

There are plenty of resources around the globe to sustain life.  The primary issue is that those in control have non-Kingdom agendas based upon personal illusions of grandeur.  They live and breath exploitation of the masses.  They would throw their mother under the bus if it were necessary to insure the next business deal.  Their appetite for “things” is an addiction that is never satisfied.  They judge others’ actions but judge themselves by their intentions, not actions.  Prophetically speaking, I believe we are nearing the end of this age dominated by man’s ego.  It will give way to Love dominated decisions.  The illusions will be burned away and will be revealed for what they are.

The large investment banks continue to suppress both gold and silver.  But think about it, producing gold and selling it at $1,600 per ounce creates tremendous earnings and cash flow for mining stocks.  Based on fundamentals, they should be at record highs, not 52 week lows.  If you believe as I do that ultimately they will move to reasonable stock price levels, then you can look at the current environment as buying opportunities to add to your position.  Time like this is why I recommend against leverage.  When portfolio values are down there is no pressure to meet margin calls.  It is simply a waiting game.  At some point the market will wake up and see that the sea of debt will consume paper money’s value.  At that point they will look for the only insurance out there: gold and silver.  History will prove to be right once again.

In the meantime, focus your attention towards Loving others.  Brighten someone’s day by some expression of Love.  With unemployment over 20% (based on the raw numbers), people need encouragement.  Give them something whether it be tangible or intangible.  Express Our Heavenly Father’s Love to them that your joy may be full.
