monday's flowers

)

Hope everyone is doing fantastic on this Monday.

The world over is reeling from the fallout of another senseless tragedy.My sympathies are with the parents and families that have lost  innocent children. When children are not safe even at school what are we supposed to do then? Violence has become a pandemic of epic proportions across the globe.It’s invaded our homes, offices, business places ,even our shopping malls and every strata of society.Society is becoming filled with individuals who feel powerless and full of fear.Our children are becoming desensitized to the constant barrage, it is simply to much.If we think for one second that this tide of violence is going away think again. People are extremely angry , so much so these days that they do not care how many lives  they destroy in the process of getting their revenge.This generation has no respect for other lives, they just kill at will.Mankind! What are we doing to each other,I ask you? Can’t we do better than this? Though we might never know why the young man retaliated in such fashion.We can all agree that he was very angry.Why are we so angry these days is the question?

God wants the whole of America, not just pockets of it.Why you ask? America influences the rest of world,God has his reasons.He will bring America to  its knees if they refuse to change.Everything that we are seeing presently is a symptom of something greater  at work.Change must happen now if the tide is to be stemmed.America must change, the world must change.

A concerned world citizen,my heart is aching for mankind.Some of you are waiting until the violence visits you personally, keep waiting you might not survive it. Can’t you see something is wrong! You and I can fix it if we change now.

 
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”  2 Chronicles 7:14.

My Social Media Personae

As we encourage and inspire each other through blogging, different social media  platforms and other types of media and art we are changing the world.Transforming our consciousness and bringing back divine balance into mans affairs. It is a movement that has begun, some might say it has been around for a while now.I say otherwise, this global flow has a new sound and a new energy.Changing as it picks up momentum and demolishes obstacles, it refuses to bow to archaic demands.The spirit of now wants change, radical change that can sustain and balance the lives of seven billion people.Though mostly centralized to the youths fringes and pockets of mature ideologies will balance and complement the flow.Some of the dramatic changes we have seen in recent years attest to present reality.The world is no longer the same,it is really a global village now.I will also say that God has his hands smack dab in the affairs of men. Thanks for reading…Ciao

Realm : is a community or territory over which a sovereign rules; it is commonly used to describe a kingdom or other monarchical or dynastic state.

We live in the physical realm.Physical refers to the things which we can see and touch, tangible real .Evidence for other realms, firstly death no one ever comes back from wherever they go.If one thinks on how we came to be ? The whole process whereby a human being is formed and then born.When we think about it, this period from  conception to birth it’s really a mysterious occurrence.We must understand the existence of life and death before man studied and labeled them as bodily process under the guise of science.The earth houses dead things,yet it brings forth life.More evidence for realms include the whole galaxy and beyond.What I’m trying to do here is mostly  argue the existence of God.He is real and we should open our minds and hearts to receive him.Life and living entails more than what we see before us.Mankind started studying and we came to an understanding or some  knowledge of these systems.There is much that we don’t know and probably will never know.All I’m saying is that we must  ponder things, many of us like to be forced fed.Think for yourself, that’s why we have been given a brain.Our mind really gives us the freedom to be who we were ultimately meant to be. Ask God to show himself and he will.I think contemporary man is sometimes arrogant in the sense that we believe we have a monopoly on knowledge and wisdom.The supernatural realm controls the physical.Take for example the occurrence of wind, rain, storms and the devastation they cause when they attack.After living on the earth for thousands of years we are no where close to controlling these elements.That tells me something about their nature,hmm…I don’t necessarily think we should throw science out the door I love the study of science and what it has done for us but we are naive to think there is no God. The realm I want to present to you is the supernatural realm.It is real,people and that I believe is my life’s work to share as I learn.Many of us are on different paths in our spiritual journey. Wherever  you are is a wonderful testament to the power of the living God.As our awareness rises the world will become a better place.

I love to study the Holy Bible, its one of my all time favorite.Earlier I presented the physical realm and then I gave evidence for the supernatural or spiritual realm.One could say this realm is shrouded in mystery because we can’t see it and also because we don’t know a lot about it. I think at this time God is opening up himself and this realm in new ways to us.The only individual or being we are told who has ever gone successfully between the two realms is Jesus the Christ.He is the force that connects the two,he is in fact the model for all mankind.In subsequent posts I would like to share who  Jesus is.When mankind falls away from God he always sends messengers to bring them back, that’s how he has always done it.One important qualifier we must in remember in reference to God is that  God is a spirit , he is also a paradox  meaning that your logical and well-ordered brain will reject God every time.So to tie in the realms, we know by dentition that they are ruled by a sovereign. Which means that God is in charge in his realm (Heaven) you know who is in charge on the earth ( the physical realm) you and I mankind.What we allow down here God allows.We have been given delegated authority to rule.God’s word”And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” Genesis 1:28.
Be blessed today!

Intellect:

The power of knowing as distinguished from the power to feel and to will: the capacity for knowledge. The capacity for rational or intelligent thought especially when highly developed.

 

Where the things of God are concerned most of us rely on intellect alone. God is bigger than the sum of our brains, if he designed it, he must be of higher intelligence than his creation. First and foremost God is a spirit. A major characteristic of spirit beings is that they operate largely unseen. It stands to reason then if we can’t see them, there are ways they communicate with us. Humans are types of beings, so are animals and angels, all created by the same God (see the account in the book of Genesis). God speaks primarily to mans hearts, there are many reasons why we don’t hear him. In the gospel of Mark 4:14:20 the Parable of the sower explains to us why it is that many do not hear the inner voice of God.

 “The sower (God) sows the word. These are the ones on the path where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them. And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: when they hear the word, they immediately receive it with joy. But they have no root, and endure only for a while; then, when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. And others are those sown among the thorns, these are the ones who hear the word but the cares of the world, and the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things come in and choke the word and it yields nothing. And these are the ones sown on the good soil: they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundred-fold.”

God can use anything to speak to a person who wants to hear him, he is almighty God he commands the winds, the seas and all his creation. In the Bible he has used talking animals, a flaming bush, angels, visions, and a “still small voice” to speak to his people. The heart is the center of the intellect, it consists of one’s intellect, emotion and volition (the act of will).Many of us search for God with our brain power alone. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” Isaiah 55:9 says the Lord.

Mans wisdom rejects God, to get God we have to allow our other senses be open to receive him. God laughs at our wisdom, the Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

 “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” God allows those that don’t believe to carry on in their unbelief. He allows their behavior to catch up with them; sometimes they perish other times he intervenes. God wants our hearts and minds to be in fellowship with him, our brain (the mind) receives the word and it transforms our hearts to receive. Intellect is inherently fleshy or of the flesh, God has to speak and change our hearts by his process. When we accept Jesus the old man dies, we become new creatures and it’s this new man that accepts God transforming power in his life. This man is our spirit man; fleshy man will never get God. I believe Eve warred with her spirit. She had been preoccupied in her senses with the fruit she should not have been longing at. If her flesh had been in subjection to her spirit she would not have blundered. Apostle Paul said it best Romans 7:15-19 “ For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.”

The flesh wars with spirit when the spirit man is not in control, of the individual. The issue Paul is addressing is the fight with sin and wrongdoing; we are not able to overcome on our own but with God’s grace we can that is why we need him. What the fall or sin did was to cut us off or severe us from the power source. Satan interrupted what God was doing with mankind through Adam and Eve so he had to send Jesus to finish his work; Jesus is part of the Godhead (Three bare witness in heaven).God is a trinity, and he made man a triune being also because he was created in the image of God. God really loves mankind wow…! “God said, Let us make man in Our image” Genesis 1:26. The Holy Trinity is depicted in the Apostle Paul’s benediction “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” 2 Corinthians 13:14.Further reference of the Trinity spoken by Jesus “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” Matthew 28:19. “I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Thessalonians 5:23.Created in the image of God, man is likewise a trinity. He has a spiritual nature that is separate and distinct from the body in which it dwells.

Jesus came to reconcile man to his SUPERNATURAL capacity and giftings. He taught and showed by example the power of the supernatural, in the multiplication of the bread and fishes and turning water into wine. Jesus as part of the Godhead is the bread of life. If you ask him, he won’t refuse you. God hides himself for many reasons, mankind can’t handle the full manifestation of the spirit of God, it is too much. Put away your books meet God in his preordained meeting place, location the church and let him talk to your heart then we can compare notes. Have you seen tumors disappear, diseases healed, lives spared in accidents tell me your stories of God miraculous working power.
I’ve seen the operation of the spirit in churches and people are scared, well the men of old really walked with God they feared and revered him. The church wants revival, God has to manifest in such a powerful way now because of the things we have done and the evil strongholds that need breaking. What I really wanted to get at today is that many individuals who say there is no God has only studied one aspect of mans tripartite nature. The Bible is the foremost authority on the spiritual nature of man. Prove that spirits don’t exist and that the king of spirits is not God, that there are some mysteries we can’t comprehend and I’ll have to change my mind too but until that time I’ve proven God is a miracle working God, He spared my life multiple times and I count no better service than his work. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart Hebrews 4:12.

 

 

I decree and declare a breaking and shattering now in the name of Jesus!

 Let the supernatural work of God take precedence now over the will of men.

Mankind’s fall meant he lost his connection to his creator. More importantly though we lost our identity and ever since we have been on a quest to find out who we really are? Along the way we have made some pit stops into rocky (barren, unfruitful) terrain. If we accept evolution, then we might as well throw out the teachings of the Bible. Evolution is far removed from the principles and ideas laid out in the Bible, in fact they are diametrically opposed to one another. A basic definition of evolution is the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms or the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form. If we can examine some of the more prevalent ideas of the theory we can come to our own conclusions.

Evolution in essence studies the science of change. Its premise is that all things evolve, that change is pervasive in the universe. Evolution is a theory, it hasn’t fully addressed concretely the evidence it presents. New studies and ideas are constantly cropping up in scientific literature. “Most scientists who study the structures and evolution of the universe agree that the Genesis account of creation in imagining an initial void, may be uncannily close to the truth” (Time, December 1976).The Bible written thousands of years ago unequivocally states that every animal brings forth after its own kind, evolution basics say the opposite. Man is not just another type of animal the Bible teaches that mans divine mandate is to “be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” (Genesis 1:28).Evolution theory occupies a wide field of scientific research and within its community there are differing views. “Mosts scientist are unable to arrive at a specific definition of biological evolution. “Biological evolution is… change in the properties of populations of organisms (you and me) that [happen during] the lifetime of a single individual. The changes in populations that are considered evolutionary are those that are inheritable via the genetic material from one generation to the next” ( Douglas J. Futuyma in Evolutionary Biology, Sinauer Associates 1986).

 

When biologists determine evolution has occurred they are referring to change in the gene pool (change in the genes of a population).Many of us have thought that the change would be more basic, something that could be measured in our individual bodies in our lifetime. It’s much more subtle though according to evolutionary progenitors. While some may argue that the Biblical account of creation presents some unique challenges. We can agree that the issue of mans origin cannot be definitely concluded from just observation alone. Everything we know up to this point must be put together if we are looking too get the big picture. Ultimately our dilemma will only be solved if we look to a source higher than ourselves. To do that another facet of our makeup must be activated and that is our belief system.

We can’t negate America’s role in the world.The eyes of the world looks to America. Americans are not just trend setters,most of the world people’s, cultures and traditions  find refuge on American shores. A unique melting pot,many challenges and difficulties that  need permanent solution,certainly .My own two cents,what President Obama has been able to do , amidst the issues he’s faced is truly remarkable.I think his election both times are more than historical footnotes.No one succeeds alone but President Obama’s success shows the power of dreams,tenacity and determination.God ordains rulers for his purposes hmm….What seems impossible to man is possible with God.As I’ve said before we are at a crossroads in history.I believe what the world needs now is leaders that can unite the populace.The world and its people are hurting like never before. Are we able to give more of ourselves unselfishly to the issues we need resolved.  I’ve said before this generation has vast resources and still untapped potentials.Time and history are not the only judges,the whole universe is waiting expectantly for our response. God is watching us,waiting also for our response.This time we as human beings will be judged on our ability to be selfless. What are you gonna do about you? The old is boring, it’s time to be honest with ourselves and embrace the winds of change happening not just in America but around the world.Its a huge ground swell sweeping the entire planet.Get in the flow .Blessings!

“No evil goes unpunished”

It doesn’t matter what evil personalities do.It might look as though they have escaped.Not so,there is always a price to pay.The God who is the creator of the universe sees all and knows all.He says “dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord” Romans 12:19.My job is to speak the unvarnished, unadulterated word of God.A lot of us only like to hear about the nice attributes of God. The word of God addresses the whole man not just parts of him.God sees man in totality,what I mean by this is mans environment, his state, his choices, his tripartite nature(body, soul and spirit) is known to God.God sees the big picture,he sees what is not obvious to the us, he is way  bigger than what we can comprehend.It is time we understand that the spiritual realm  controls the physical realm.Have you ever wondered about some things that have happened that you have no explanation for, or some weird phenomenon that has left you with questions.Please ponder that today,God really wants us to get to know him, if you draw nigh to him he will reveal himself to you.
