Micah chapter 7


As this come true in our generation?

1 Woe is me! For I am

Like the fruit pickers, like the grape gatherers.

There is not a cluster of grapes to eat,

Or a first-ripe fig which I crave.

2 The godly person has perished from the land,

And there is no upright person among men.

All of them lie in wait for bloodshed;

Each of them hunts the other with a net.

3 Concerning evil, both hands do it well.

The prince asks, also the judge, for a bribe,

And a great man speaks the desire of his soul;

So they weave it together.

4 The best of them is like a briar,

The most upright like a thorn hedge.

The day when you post your watchmen,

Your punishment will come.

Then their confusion will occur.

5 Do not trust in a neighbor;

Do not have confidence in a friend.

From her who lies in your bosom

Guard your lips.

6 For son treats father contemptuously,

Daughter rises up against her mother,

Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;

A man’s enemies are the men of his own household.

Cherished Opinion


God is far too large to explain in full. Not to mention that he only revealed to man those things that pertain to man. Yet for all his extreme enormity, God is a singular person. He is his Word. He is Jesus.

There are great works written about this topic. I don’t intend to elaborate any further here. The point of this writing is not to glorify God, in a manner of speaking. Rather this is to help those who cherish their own opinions about God and who they are.

I can tell you from my personal experience, there is a God. Many have said to me, “So you say, but you have no proof”.

Yes. I do have proof but you won’t believe it. The proof I offer you is that you should believe in God. That you should pray to him. That you should read his holy Word the Bible. And that you should ask sincerely of those who display the character of Christianity. Do this and you will find the proof you say I don’t have. Gain Christ by the mercy of God and the proof will be in you.

As you venture down the Christian Road, you will encounter the most difficult life a man can live. At the same time you will encounter an unspeakably glorious peace. It is not the kind of peace people can lay their hands on in this world. It is a peace that comes from heaven and delivers the things of heaven.

If you are sincerely looking for proof that there is a God, take my advice. And if indeed there is a God, such as Christianity describes, it is imperative that you seek his mercy. If you like living, don’t want to die, and want truth and peace, submit yourself humbly before the living God.

Vegas Everywhere


Vegas, is there some mystically important to that geographical place? They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

I’ve got news for everyone, what happens anywhere in this world accompanies us to the throne of the Most high God. Not one particle of dust in this world will offer us immunity, no matter what we call it and no matter where it is.

If you want immunity, live the life of Christ.

8. “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9. Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy to gloom. 10. Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.”

Christ is not a box to be checked. He is a life to be lead.

Television 


Appropriate social conditioning:

By order of he who rules the air:  

“You will adore everything that belongs to the nature of destruction.  You will sing songs about lewdness.  You will wonder about God but never seek the answers.  (if you happen to fall on a reasonable answer turn it in for examination and go your way)  Let it be enough that you adore religion.  

You will listen to the father of lies, never questioning why.  For he is the only truth you will know.  Death, oblivion, uselessness, jokes about what is Holy, and violence, these will be the trappings of your religion.  Enjoy your life, until we are unified in the place that is marked out for us.  

WATCH TELEVISION!”


Society, constructed by a simple instrument; preformed for a single purpose; wrapped around the souls of the masses.  Debase humanity.   Elevate depravity.

    And how the world marvels at the work of its own hands.  Oh, how they adore the classroom.  

The world will love its own. 

 Amazingly, how many see such things and don’t even question why. 

 How are these things any different than the Roman Colosseum?  

How are they different than the Assyrian parade of captives, led through the streets with rings in their noses attached to one another by a string?  Lives, destroyed and sold for the price of a flea.  The hope of family shattered with every painful step.  How the people cheered and applauded the “victor”.

So: the slaves – paid well and even honored to be educated hypocrites.  

What shall be said about the populace?  The taste of blood on their lips, they teach their children the same.  All the while they praise themselves for retaining innocence in the babes (retaining with a series of fables and lies).  Waiting with bated breath for maturity, so that they can enjoy depravity together as a family.  

Filthy, filthy, filthy souls!

 What day is it, that we do not even need to be in attendance at the Colosseum to witness blood? 

 The public is despicably entertained by the suffering of others. 😢  

But, “The People of The Christ”?

Belong Together?


If the substance of God was only the opinions of man, perhaps even the sum of them, 

. . . The world would be exactly as we find it.  


Every man pursuing the best of his own mind;

Mindless of the minds around him.  


Violence: 

from murder to war 

from jealousy to revenge

from specialized inclusion to utter distain

from dutiful servitude to despicable rebellion.  


Yes.  


If the substance of God was only the opinions of man, wouldn’t we see exactly what we do?


Scatter the people so that they cannot construct together. Destroy solidarity.  


The nature of what we worship matters intensely. 

Define Christianity.  

Broken, Not Destroyed


I don’t know what value this is. Maybe it’s only valuable to me; to let my heart speak the words.  

What is Christ to me? He is a painful love. Yet, it’s not that he is painful but that I am from destruction.  


I see his love. I feel his love. I strive, with everything I have, to do his love. Yet the culture of the place where I am from often interferes with peace.  


The pain is not because of his love. Pain does not come from there. It comes from the store house of memories; wrapped around every thought like a leaching vine on a dying tree.  


I remember I did this to someone. I remember I failed to recognize someone else’s pain. Missed moments. Murderous moments. Distracted by selfishness. Wasted times, Times spent trying to survive, encased in a body full of greed.  


Sigh. So it is. But I would rather live this horror, with his love as my target, than to spend another moment living that useless life I have come to regret so deeply.  


Let this be an apology where no words can repair. Let this stand as a testimony to true Christianity.  


The Spirit of God calls, provokes, leads, and encourages toward what is holy. The unholy part of me must succumb. And I am gratefully thankful to my God that his promise is to destroy the destroyer. He is the rock upon which we are broken. Yet woe to those upon whom it falls, for they shall be utterly ground to powder.  


Be glorified Holy Father, for the work of Your own hands in the souls You have chosen to love.
