"Vehicles - are - Entering Right!"

By their sheer numbers, thousands of anti-racist protesters marching through downtown Boston on Saturday effectively protesting hate.

This was seen as hate filled racism. And went forth.

"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear." - Martin Luther King, Jr




AMERCIA!!! Boston!!! Push Forward !!!


USA TODAY
Doug Stanglin

Excerpts:

""By their sheer numbers, thousands of anti-racist protesters marching through downtown Boston on Saturday, effectively prevented activists from mounting a "Free Speech Rally" in the aftermath of deadly clashes last week in Virginia.

(I am for real "Free Speech.")

Some media reports said only two dozen people actually attended the rally that had sparked the counterprotest in the first place. At 1:30 p.m., about 90 minutes after the rally had been set to begin, the Boston Police Department tweeted that the "Free Speech" rally was "officially over" and the demonstrators had left the Common.

By noon, Boston police said at least 15,000 counter protesters were peacefully marching toward the park where the rally area was blocked off by a ring of metal barriers.

Thousands more descended on the area over the next hour.

Many carried signs saying "LOVE your neighbor,”
“Resist fascism”
and “Hate never made U.S. great.”
Others held a banner reading: “Smash White Supremacy.”
One column of marchers carried a sign stretching almost the width of a street that read, "Which side are YOU on?"

TV cameras showed a group of boisterous counter protesters on the Common chasing a man with a Trump campaign banner and cap, shouting and swearing at him. But other counter protesters intervened and helped the man safely over a fence into the area where the other rally was to happen.

Boston placed tight restrictions on rallygoers, banning backpacks, sticks or anything that could be turned into a weapon.

Boston Free Speech Coalition, which organized the rally, said on Facebook that it is not affiliated with the Charlottesville rally organizers in any way. “We are not associated with any alt-right or white supremacist groups,” the coalition said. “We are strictly about free speech.”

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans thanked the mostly peaceful protesters and police officers.
"I’m just fortunate that none of the officers got hurt, none of the public got hurt," said Evans, speaking with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh behind him. "Overall it was a good day for our city in that we won’t tolerate hatred and bigotry. People came out to say Boston is united."


Mayor Marty Walsh echoed the sentiments on Twitter.
"Today, Boston stood for peace and love, not bigotry and hate. We should work to bring people together, not apart," Walsh tweeted, adding thanks "to all who peacefully stood up for our values."

Donald J. Trump
I want to applaud the many protestors in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate. Our country will soon come together as one!""








The 383-year-old Boston Common — the nation’s oldest city park — has been the site of numerous rallies and protests for centuries.






15,000 thousand marched
Joined by thousands later
- 8 arrests were made
The Freedom to Assemble.
Using the real right of "Freedom of Speech".

Who makes America great again? The people.
What makes America great again? Peace.

The people who carry a sign saying "LOVE your neighbor."
The people helping the protester get to the right place.
The sheer numbers of peaceful people.
Resisting hate.
Resisting fascism.








"Which side are YOU?"

I am for the Constitution and for real "Free Speech."
I am opposed to "Racism."
I am for "Love Your Neighbor!!!"
I am very not for one idea for all and say, '"Resist Fascism."
I am for Freedom to Gather. Very. Just like this.
I am blessed to see thousands gather peacefully to show what is Good.


We have all seen so many disturbing aspects of the news. Thank God. Good News.








Abba, Our Father,

Wow. Thank God. Good News.

Jesus pray with us all. Hearts revealed. Peacefully. Showing us all again why You want the world to be saved.

Help us never to be forgetful of our Blessings.
Help us never to be forgetful of our Blessings.
Help us never to be forgetful of our Blessings.

Ecclesiastes 9
7 Go then, eat your bread in happiness and drink your wine with a cheerful heart;
for God has already approved your works.
8 Let your clothes be white all the time, and let not oil be lacking on your head.

Nehemiah 8:10 
“Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Deuteronomy 26:11
And you shall rejoice in all the good that the LORD your God has given to you and to your house, you, and the Levite, and the sojourner who is among you.

Love Your Neighbor.

Deuteronomy 16:11
You shall rejoice before the LORD your God, you and your son and your daughter and your male and female servants and the Levite who is in your town, and the stranger and the orphan and the widow who are in your midst, in the place where the LORD your God chooses to establish His name.


Peace be upon us, we pray, Father God. Blessings of Your Mercy. And for our neighbor, Mexico, and the violence they have each month. Our prayers are with them. For the British paramedic, Mr. Zubler, in Finland, defending two women from a violent knifer - for his recovery. 

And, truthfully, frankly, for "South Park" telling us a wall is just Wrong.




May Our God of hope fill us with all joy and peace as we Believe in Him,
so that we may overflow with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Rejoicing in the witness of Proverbs 8 - why Jesus Christ delights in mankind.

I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, brimming with knowledge, and able to instruct one another.

Thank You Again, Boston!!! Freedom!!!

By God’s will I say to you with joy and am refreshed in your company.

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Jesus within, Jesus in our loved one's, Jesus increase the Holy Spirit in us as we Believe. Peace flooding us and pouring over our borders Jesus fulfilling His Word is Joy.

May the God of peace be with us all. Amen.

Thank You, Jesus.

Psalm 91 ~ He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge




Psalm 91

He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge



Today we were in Lansing, Michigan. Until 4:30 a.m. We turned a corner downtown and a very, very large and impressive Church had a billboard reading "Do not joke about the Apocalypse." The small, black, moveable letters were lighted up with a green light and the marque was small, but architecturally impressive. I decided I had to look fast at the Church to see if this was a joke in serious downtown Lansing, Michigan or if this was Church and Church Seriousness. Wow, this was Church of impressive size, impressive Architecture, beautifully immaculately, maintained in the best part of downtown and we - were - past - this - Church with Large Buildings blocking the view.


I think I read it to say, "Be part of the solution."

My week is crossing the continent twice since Monday and once by car (20 hours, 2 vehicles, 4 people) and next by plane on Friday. My eldest son is off to Michigan State University! Wow. Texas - om. Wow. This is some very serious Architecture. Wow. 8th Largest Campus in the USA. Amazing. Bruce Wayne, aka Adam West, we need the Bat Light.


Very Friendly. School children ask about the dog. We slept one night at my son's duplex rental. In charming Lansing about 4 blocks from the State Capital. Inner city. Michigan. My son's landlord is a Michigan State Professor. Friendly - delighted we had picked Michigan apples for a pie I hope Cal is going to make - he loves to do Apple Pie. About a 1910 building and the crime rate is low - very intermixed racially. People walk to the grocery store and say hello to you on the porch. You bet the porch - no air conditioning and 63' at night.


And how was your week. Nothing upsetting on facebook. Nothing disturbing in the news - same ol. Normal, logical. Except. A few ... things. Buckling seat belt.

Passing through segregated Little Rock - people very friendly. Missouri - same. Illinois - same. Michigan - pure friendly. News - whoa. Stop.



Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a Magic Mallet.

Not to do harm - but to cause the people of the USA to stop and see what they truly have.


To see how much of the USA is beautiful and not crowded or jammed up. Peaceful. Grateful. All the polls say the USA has a higher than 85% believe in Jesus and pray. The people polled don't have to say this. They just - meant this.



Sit on your front porch. Say hello.



Refuge.

His faithfulness is a shield and buckler.


God has delivered us safely 

You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.


If we are honest. Our nation has 319 Million People. Millions and Millions and we had 11 injured in Chicago's 3 million. I'm sure the hospital was just ... shocked.  9 people injured in Charlotte. 37 in Barcelona, worlds away.

And 2,300 people murdered in Juarez in -  a - month. Where is that upset?  Real people. Not statues. Not people who are dead long, long ago. People with living breathing families. Sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews. Children.

Real issue - suicide goes hand and hand with substance abuse. And we are ignoring substance abuse for flaps over metal.  We need to give hope, faith acheiving and Love.

Travel across the USA. See how beautiful and peaceful this country is. Maybe we are flapping about the media and not about real life hardships. Wall? No. One word. Tunnels.  One more word. Mercy. Mercy. Mercy.


A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.





Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge—
no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.





For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.






On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone. (a statue)
You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

“Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.

When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.

With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”






Abba,  Our Abba,

We are the Nation who declares in God we Trust. We are the people who tell strangers 85% pray regularly. And believe Jesus is God and hears.

How beautiful are many places offering words of kindness to one another.

We are the place were we anticipate to sleep safely. We are the Nation where 80 years ago people tied tires to their feet to have shoes. We had no Social Security. We had no Health Care.

We are the nation where Theodore Roosevelt lost both of his parents in their 40s because that was the age limit. They had actually died of old age - as most of the Continent of Africa today. And he honored them by fighting for equality for all people.

We are the nation who borders Mexico - where 2,300 people die in a month of drug related and crime related deaths.

And because we pray - we Thank You for our loved ones expecting to live long lives. We anticipate college costs to be reasonable again - like Social Security was created.

We anticipate our youth and our retirees to go to Missions and help the poor. We know we volunteer and know others who do. We help - because - Father God You have endowed us with Blessings. We bless the Churches who have armies and helpers who build wheelchair ramps and paint houses. We bless the Churches sending Meals on Wheels. We bless the Church for feeding the Hurricane evacuees for months and months and months - their source of food.


God bless the poor hunks of metal that are art. God bless the 1 in 6 families who would like a mentor to get out of hunger situations.



Thank You Father God for the wars we have had - that we may not war in that direction again. Yesterday has past and we have prevailed.

Father God, Thank You for the health of the ones we love. For our own health concerns. Thank You we will sleep safely this night and for the people You have given us who will be safe as well.


Abba, our children are well, they are blessed to want and find education. We have better community colleges than ever before. We have educated Churches who work with the people in cities, states and our Nation pressing forward our 'real' needs. We hear about Constitutional Conventions. We think upon Solutions. We anticipate the Goodness You are. No man can boast of his righteousness, but we have the numbers who confess Jesus is God and pray. And we will pray for other Nations in Jesus Christ.

We will not be discouraged from our Blessings.
We will never forget, never forget, never forget our Blessings.
We will not be discouraged from our Blessings.

We will not be discouraged from our Blessings.
We will be mindful of our Blessings.
We are Blessed.  We will Thank You, God.

Your Grace cannot be bought. And You have showered us with Goodness.


We are the Easter People and Jesus is our Savior, Alleluia.
Day by Day we will persist and have Joy in Jesus Christ our God. Amen.

Philippians 2:12-18 ~ you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work


Today - we 2nd This Emotion.

Philippians 2:12-18


12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”

Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life.

And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.




Moving Week for my eldest son!  Surprise Table Pizza! We had an appetizer and a Tomato Bruschetta Pizza and one pizza to return with and, surprisingly,  found Dinner to be a Table. I think this is our first text of dinner out - 'Evah'. Table Pizza. Delicious and amazing. Not an Alka Seltzer moment - we hope. Oh Lord Deliver Us, Amen.


The passages are picked out before the text is known. The Word of God is living and active. While 'objects in mirror are closer than they appear' this is indeed how the posts are written. Movies tell us, "The story, all names, characters, and incidents portrayed in this production are fictitious. No identification with actual persons (living or deceased), places, buildings, and products is intended or should be inferred."

The Word of God is indeed Jesus. The Word of God made manifest. Jesus would tell us about learning the Word of God is a light to the Way, Truth and Life we want to lead.

Matthew 13:11-13

And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand."


Do we believe, "All Things work together for good, for those who Love the Lord and Work according to His Purpose" - we should Believe.

A matter of faith. I'm sure some events will have to be trusted to Father God, like losing a daughter at birth.





Consider ~

"you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work"

Noah obeyed.

David obeyed.

Peter asked Jesus to depart from Peter, he declared himself to be a sinner and not worthy to be Jesus'.

3,000 pages of the Bible -
how -  will we obey - all  -of the Word of God. Or even Mark 7.

To use the Word of God given to us personally - using His Gifts for our lives.

Jesus came to fulfill the Law. Every dot. Every Word of God is Truth and, therefore, Law. We are meant to obey the Law of Liberty - to believe Jesus bought us with a Price.





God tells us Jesus shows us our Father. His Mercy and Love. We honor our faith - our Love for Jesus by putting our lives, words, deeds in the faith He puts in our soul. I John 2 and 3 are John living a long life and realizing the depths of trying to live life with faith. The Bible tells us God could examine our every thought, every deed and every word. Without His Grace - we are sunk. And we would be sunk to forget we live because God died for us. There is absolutely no way to buy God's Grace with our goodness. God tells us this is Not Possible.

I told my son at dinner as he told a story about his mom and working to get along with the two of us - "I'm not always perfect, but then I am!" He laughed a good and solid 2 or 3 minutes heartily. I am forgetful. I surely will forget details when life presses in with many events. I am sometimes bright and sometimes I can't spell. My own Daddy called my brain "Sometimes". Leading to me praying for all of my life to be helped by the Holy Spirit. To make me mindful of when I need to use and ask for wisdom. To help me remember what needs to be accomplished this day. To pray for those who need prayers. To shop effectively and wisely. To work wisely. To use words wisely. To employ wisdom and mercy. To please God with my choices. To care for those God has given me and to be a good Stewart of His Blessings. To laugh. To have Joy. To trust God with my salvation and not be judgmental. To be wise. To employ mercy. Worthy of repeating. God Himself tells us the "Joy of God - is - my Strength." And I have been told by people who pray for me - I am strong. And I believe this to be God's gift. One of my best gifts is the ability to endure with Joy. To believe solutions will come forth. Believe all things work for Good in His Love.



We will treat our Salvation as precious. And at the end of the day, with God's Grace - we will rest and be glad the Creator of All Things, finds in His Love and Mercy, we are covered in the Name of Jesus. And in sincerely doing what we can and what we believe in Jesus - God is pleased. And in Jesus Christ we absolutely can approach our Father with confidence. This parallels the Book of Esther doing her best for her people - the Jews.



Abba God,

We ask Jesus to pray with us. Increasing the Holy Spirit within us.

You are our Father, Your Kingdom is Heaven and all the good earth belongs to You. Help us each day to see Your willingness to bring more of Heaven to earth - the lives of the people we Love and You have given us - to have the Helper - Holy Spirit. You are Holy and willing. You give us the Name of Jesus to ask with and cover ourselves in Jesus for Salvation. The awe of being asked by You - for Your Kingdom in Eternity. More today.

Give us this Day - our Daily Living Bread - Jesus. We will need Your help today. And rejoice in Your Love and Blessings. Listing them to You - today.

Forgive me my smug virtues, my flaws I like, my true weakness and my sin. Help me to have Joy for my Grace from You and work this with wisdom and with Joy for others. Grace is the fuel of Joy.

Lead me to not employ my own quiet life in paths You'd not have me travel. Help me to call upon Jesus and be diligent and disciple in Your Joy.

We want and need You father God to protect us from evil. We believe and Trust You.

And as John found, Your's is the Kingdom of Wonderful Love and Eternity. Your Word is the Power to give us hope, faith and Love. Your Glory is where we Want to be. Thank You for Revelation 6 - John finding himself eye to eye with wonderful Jesus again.

Thank You, Your Word is Life for us all. For Barcelona - struck by lightning - hatred and terrorism. Our world is small enough to share the news of wickedness all over the globe and fear. We will not have fear. We will Thank You, Jesus, the murderers are caught and pray for all Your Love and Protection in a world You said would have troubles.

We pray for the Will of God to find each of us working in tandem for God's Kingdom around us. The Word of God to live and dwell making our lives meaningful, Love and mercy covering the earth with God's Goodness. Seeing what is Good and spreading Jesus as Good News.

Thank You, today, Father God, In Jesus. Amen.

Matthew 9:18-26 ~ she will live





Matthew 9:18-26

While he was saying these things to them, behold, a ruler came in and knelt before him, saying, “My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live.”

19 And Jesus rose and followed him, with his disciples. 


20 And behold, a woman who had suffered from a discharge of blood 
for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, 21 for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I will be made well.” 

22 Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.

23 And when Jesus came to the ruler's house and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion, 24 he said, “Go away, for the girl is not dead but sleeping.”


 And they laughed at him.


 25 But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose. 26 And the report of this went through all that district.









When you look and read the entire portion of Scripture.

What do you see.












 

Now, of these 9 points. Which one warms your heart?

For some people, this will be: Jesus is filled with God.

I love and adore that Jesus is personal. Working quietly. One person and Jesus.

Any of these is the correct answer - This is God speaking to you.




Abba, Our Father!


Your Word is Life! We ask Jesus to pray with us.




Father God, this is the season when the people we love have new circumstances. We pray for new schools and new seasons to have Your Love, guidance, protection, care and steadfast assurances. With more of Your Holy Spirit - we have more of Your Peace. Not boring peace, but the assurance we know You have as Father God of all.



We have an unrealistic prayer. Grasping at straws.

The Willingness of Jesus - so very willing.

Long time suffering - reaching out to Jesus

Faith rewarded for many long years.

"Take heart, your faith has made you well."

Jesus works quietly.

The crowd was rude to Jesus.

Jesus acted personally. His attention and intention was personal. Not to the crowd.

Jesus is  Filled with God.


May the Power, Glory and LOVE of God Himself.
Fill Your Heart. Amen in Jesus.

Luke 2:27 ~ Led by the Spirit

I have a wonderful feeling for the picture, our Step-grandfather did not have a beard, but he had white hair and baptized us. I was 8 years old when my brother was baptized as a baby.


Luke 2:27


Led by the Spirit, he went into the temple area. Meanwhile, Jesus' parents brought the child to the temple so that they could do what was customary under the Law.



We study the Bible a lot of times in huge swathes. Even the sentences, paragraphs, events and Chapters are arranged in God's order of thought.


John 21 -is telling us about the life of Jesus.

25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

The appearance of Simeon is not coincidental. Simeon fully understands he is called of the Spirit to attend to God's Son, the Messiah. This is a Scriptural insight to the Life of Jesus.


John 5
God His own Father, making Himself equal with God. 19So Jesus replied, “Truly, truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing by Himself, unless He sees the Father doing it. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does. 20The Father loves the Son and shows Him all He does."


The Holy Spirit being God is going to function regardless of mankind. And yet, this is God's Son and His chosen parents work in tandem. Jesus is brought to the Temple to please God. Simeon is arriving to please God. And the God's Story is made. His Story.


Matthew 4:4
Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"

Numbers 24

19 God is not man, that he should lie,
or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
20 Behold, I received a command to bless:
he has blessed, and I cannot revoke it.


When we say The Law of God we usually refer to the 10 commandments. Jesus says the summation is Love.





Abba, Father,

We ask Jesus is with us just as the Holy Spirit was with Simeon. Mary and Joseph were surely not at peace and wanted to do all that was pleasing to God.

Jesus with them - made their lives. We pray this for our Loved Ones.




We place all of our cares, for ourselves, for my son's new State and Law School, health, national concerns, employment and this time together in Your Hands.

And in all states of fullness, need, joy, courage, concern, rest this with Father God.

Your Good Plans are our Hope and Future. Jesus bless us in the next few months to adapt well to Your Plans.

Jesus Risen Lord God. Amen.

Philippians 2 ~ The work of Christ - risking His Life



Philippians 2


1 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3 Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without grumbling or questioning, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. 17 Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all. 18 Likewise you also should be glad and rejoice with me.


19 I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, so that I too may be cheered by news of you. 20 For I have no one like him, who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare. 21 For they all seek their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ.

22 But you know Timothy's proven worth, how as a son with a father he has served with me in the gospel. 23 I hope therefore to send him just as soon as I see how it will go with me, 24 and I trust in the Lord that shortly I myself will come also. 25 I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, and your messenger and minister to my need, 26 for he has been longing for you all and has been distressed because you heard that he was ill. 27 Indeed he was ill, near to death. But God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. 28 I am the more eager to send him, therefore, that you may rejoice at seeing him again, and that I may be less anxious. 29 So receive him in the Lord with all joy, and honor such men, 30 for he nearly died for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was lacking in your service to me.



C.E. Christ Eternal. I was thinking about this today. How can we call this a common era? I suppose we could look at this as the New Covenant. Jesus died to extend God's blessings to all of mankind. We would hold this in common - to call upon Jesus Christ and hold Him in our heart would put Christ in all. I'd still prefer to say Christ Eternal!


The Roman Empire did agree time was counting down and then counting up. And the Birth of Jesus Christ was known to the Empire fairly soon upon the completion of Jesus' Victory over death - bringing us - today - a new Heaven and a new earth. We were listening to "History on Fire" podcast explained by history professor Daniele Bolelli. Professor Bolelli makes a valid point. We downgrade the current generation as being cold and self motivated. Cortez and his men had apologies made to them, for surviving a battle, by human sacrifice and blood of these men and boys sprinkled on their food. Millennials rarely do this. Cortez had battle apologies made by being handed young women as sex slaves. Millennials - not so much. One nations refused to speak to the next nation after the Princess Bride was sacrificed and as the wedding guests waited for their Princess to be married, the priest came in wearing her flayed skin. I believe when we say Christ Eternal - we miss some of the sheer magnificence of God's Goodness.

Christ Eternal would be a strong path to point in our lives - Christ Abiding - we say The Pentateuch is boring... This is what God was saving us from. Casual human sacrifice was not to occur for God's people.


We've had a hard weekend in our nation. Violence, murder, Little Rock (according to the newspaper I saw in Little Rock there was a city rally that had violence), Charlottesville, Chicago, Portland. The radio commentator said with the odd Presidential race and splintered 2 Parties of our Nation - we do not feel our voices are heard and we face unrest. This is well said.

God has seen this before. And He tells us about exactly this.

Philippians 2 says when we turn our self interest into the main focus of life - we have lost our way. Successful Psychologists and Churches realize sinking into our own interests fails to raise us up to see the Good of God. If we spend all of our time looking at our problems and never appreciate our blessings - griping about the Millennials and this present suffering seems insurmountable.

Pleasing the Vast God of the Vast Universe - not so difficult. When God tells us His salvation is Very Wide - we know to please God is to believe Him and to try with the small amount of ability our dust in the wind lives have to bless each other. God would take the dust we form, breathe on our efforts and these bones will live again. And at the end of the day as we find what Mercy God renewed in our lives - we can smile knowing Father God has been pleased with me - you - His Child. We tried.



Abba our Father,

You have Proclaimed in Jesus as we believe - we are Your Child. Increase the Holy Spirit in me. Increase the Holy Spirit in the ones I love. And we will anticipate the Joy and Strength of being those who Love You.



Agree to Pray and Do This

Abba, How will we see an end to this present suffering? Realizing times change, for the worse or better there is always change. When we extend our lives to help others - when we pray for the Holy Spirit to come into the ones we love. We will see Prayers answered.


When in Joy we put down our own problems to see what is Good. And celebrate this.

Father God, we recall the baker who remembered to help Joseph from days and days past. "Today I Remember" and will help. We remember Birmingham was called Bombingham. We remember the movie "Woodlawn" and the Billy Graham words that the Light of Jesus has overcome and will overcome. And Believe. Thanking You we are the Generation
who make the moves about "Woodlawn".

We pray for reminders to have patience, to hold our Joy. To hold our Truth. To snip off worry. To cut off the time that is past and Let us Celebrate God and His Will and Word for a Hope and a Future.


Thank You for Jesus, who loves and loves us and we find the Way forward.

Thank You God for My Blessings, Lord Jesus. Because of Your Great Mercy, Jesus Lord God. Amen and Amen in Jesus Christ. Amen.

Mark 10:13-16 ~ Bringing children to Him that He might touch them




Mark 10:13-16


13 And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. 

14 But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.

15 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” 16 And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.


The Disciples were sure the children did not matter in the business of going forth They had their Job:

Luke 10
1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. 2 And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4 Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road.

5 Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house.

8 Whenever you enter a town and they receive you,
eat what is set before you.
9 Heal the sick in it
and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’


Simon the Zealot wanted a New Messiah for a New Israel. Judas the same. Really all of the Disciples wanted the Messiah to be King of Israel.

Acts 1
6So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”



God tends to do things His own way and not ask for consultations.


The Disciples did not want the children getting Jesus' time because it wasn't establishing Jesus as Messiah King.


Mark's Gospel is the events of Jesus' life Peter was asked about time and again. Mark is telling us what the 1st Century AD looks at with Jesus being new to the people.

Matthew is telling us what a hardened work for cash man - lots of cash - and not a lot of respect saw being touched by Jesus.

Matthew 19

13 Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, 14 but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” 15 And he laid his hands on them and went away.


What did the Disciples think about Jesus wanting the children?

The Kingdom of Heaven? Children?


Isaiah 55 is explaining Jesus and Heaven and why the children loved and believed Jesus


1“Come, all you who are thirsty,
    come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
    come, buy and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk
    without money and without cost.
2 Why spend money on what is not bread,
    and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
    and you will delight in the richest of fare.

3 Give ear and come to me;
    listen, that you may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
    my faithful love promised to David.

4 See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
    a ruler and commander of the peoples.
5 Surely you will summon nations you know not,
    and nations you do not know will come running to you,
because of the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel,
    for he has endowed you with splendor.”

6 Seek the Lord while he may be found;
    call on him while he is near.

7 Let the wicked forsake their ways
    and the unrighteous their thoughts.

Let them turn to the Lord,
and he will have mercy on them,

and to our God,
for he will freely pardon.


8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.

9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

12 You will go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
    and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
    for an everlasting sign,
    that will endure forever.”



Luke the Physician who stayed with both Peter and Paul until the end, saw why the Lord enjoyed the Children.

Luke 18:17
Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”


Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please him,
for whoever would draw near to God
must believe that he exists
and that he rewards
those who seek him.




The Children freely love Jesus

Psalm 71:5-6
For you, O Lord, are my hope,
my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
Upon you I have leaned from before my birth;
you are he who took me from my mother's womb.
My praise is continually of you.





And this is why Jesus said the Children belong the Kingdom of Heaven "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God."


Mark 12:30-44

30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 32 And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. 33 And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”

34 And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.”




Jesus saw the pure belief in the Children and pure Love.




Abba Father,

We want to Love You and welcome all of Your Holy Spirit in us. And in those we Love.

You want mankind saved in Jesus. The harvest is plentiful.
and we want the people bringing hope and joy to bring in the Harvest  of Your Love and Kingdom closer to You

Just as Jesus prays with us and brought You, Abba, a new Heaven and a new earth.

Father, Your lambs are excited about Your goodness. Possibilities.

Your Lambs want peace. Contentment in what Life brings the sheep of Your Pasture, seeing the good.

Heal the sick. Listening to God and His Word daily. Looking and asking for Acts of our Abba we call miracles.


We lift to You the ones we love and our cares - health, meaning, opportunities to love and care.
Families working for Jesus and His love.
The people who have asked for prayer. The people You have given us.
We lift up our employment and opportunities.
We lift up our Nation in Jesus.
We Raise High the Church for Jesus Christ. Praying love and effectiveness.
We lift High the people of Christ all over the world encircling our world with prayer and Jesus.

And Thank You for our Blessings.
We ask for Your Word to build, comfort, go forth with all goodness as our Hope and Future.

Amen in Jesus.
