TODD
WHITE –
was a drug addict and atheist for 22 years when in 2004 He was radically set free! Redemption and righteousness are the foundation and the keys to the new creation reality that we are to live in and from. God has simply opened Todd’s eyes to this truth and that Holy Spirit wants to flow through every believer everywhere we go, at work, school, grocery stores, malls, gas stations, everywhere. His true joy is being able to reproduce in people the simplicity of this reality, in a 24/7 kingdom lifestyle! This is for every believer!

His heart is activating people into the simplicity of who they really are and destroying lies that hold people back from being who God created them to be.

No one is excluded!

Jesus rising ...

 ****

                                                                                                                                                                                 

Be like Noah ….keep on building your ark no matter what the world says.

                                                                                                         .... listen to and obey God.

 

************
                                                                              

We do know that Noah’s faithful obedience to God’s blueprint served as a witness against mankind (Hebrews 11:7). We must remember that the Bible teaches us that God “is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:7). I think we can be assured that He gave Noah 120 years of warning and gave Noah the task of building an Ark with ample room so that any who repented of their wickedness might be saved also; however while God was willing to save them, they were unwilling to repent. The open door of the Ark reminds us of the Gospel message. Jesus said, “I am the door; if any man enter by Me, he shall be saved” (John 10:9). Nevertheless, though the longsuffering of God in the days of Noah while the Ark was being prepared, the day came when God shut the door of the Ark and judgment came on all those who were not aboard. Likewise, the offer of salvation by Jesus Christ has a deadline. It is appointed unto man once to die and afterward the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).

Questions for Reflection:

Are you facing a giant problem or impossible situation? Stop for a minute and refocus. Can you see the situation more clearly from God's vantage point?

Do you need to take courageous action in the face of insults and fearful circumstances? Do you trust that God will fight for you and with you? Remember, God's opinion is the only one that matters.

King David

Depicted as a valorous warrior of great renown, and a poet and musician credited for composing much of the psalms contained in the Book of Psalms, King David is widely viewed as a righteous and effective king in battle and civil justice. He is described as a man after God's own heart in 1 Samuel 13:14 and Acts 13:22.

David is an important figure to members of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic faiths. Biblical tradition maintains the Messiah's direct descent from the line of David. In Islam, David is considered a prophet.

A prayer given to me by a friend which I believe came out of Magnificat but not sure:


This helps me to feel closer to Jesus/Yeshua in so many ways:

      I adore the wounds in your sacred head
                with sorrow deep and true.
     May every thought in my head today
                 be an act of love for you.
     I adore the wounds in your sacred
                 hands with sorrow deep and true.
     May every work of my hands today
                  be an act of love for you.
     I adore the wounds in your sacred feet
                  with sorrow deep and true.
    May every step I take today
                  be an act of love for you.
    I adore the wounds in your sacred
                 heart with sorrow deep and true.
    May every beat of my heart today
                 be an act of love for you.
 

                                   Source unknown.



I have added my own verse to this prayer as follows:

             I adore the wound in your sacred side
                           with sorrow deep and true.
             May every breath I take today
                            be an act of love for you.

Sent to me on Facebook by a dear friend:

A life lived close to Me will never be dull or predictable. Expect each day to contain surprises! Resist your tendency to search for the easiest route through the day. Be willing to follow wherever I lead. No matter how steep or treacherous the path before you, the safest place to be is by My side.

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” —Exodus 33:14

“Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” —John 15:4–7


Thank you my friend.

The Hebrew Bible commands that "The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out" (Leviticus 6:13, KJV), regarding the altar of Burnt Offering in the Tabernacle, and later the altars in Solomon's Temple and the Second Temple (the latter sacked by Rome in 70 AD). Many churches (especially Catholic and Lutheran), along with Jewish synagogues, feature an eternal flame on or hung above their altars (churches) or Torah arks (synagogues). When a church is founded, the flame is passed from another church and the candles are regularly replaced to keep the original flame burning.

Malachi 3:1-7 KJV

1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?

1 Samuel 17New International Version (NIV)

David and Goliath

17 Now the Philistines gathered their forces for war and assembled at Sokoh in Judah. They pitched camp at Ephes Dammim, between Sokoh and Azekah. Saul and the Israelites assembled and camped in the Valley of Elah and drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines. The Philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites another, with the valley between them.

A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was six cubits and a span.[a] He had a bronze helmet on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand shekels[b]; on his legs he wore bronze greaves, and a bronze javelin was slung on his back. His spear shaft was like a weaver’s rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels.[c] His shield bearer went ahead of him.

Goliath stood and shouted to the ranks of Israel, “Why do you come out and line up for battle? Am I not a Philistine, and are you not the servants of Saul? Choose a man and have him come down to me. If he is able to fight and kill me, we will become your subjects; but if I overcome him and kill him, you will become our subjects and serve us.” 10 Then the Philistine said, “This day I defy the armies of Israel! Give me a man and let us fight each other.” 11 On hearing the Philistine’s words, Saul and all the Israelites were dismayed and terrified.

12 Now David was the son of an Ephrathite named Jesse, who was from Bethlehem in Judah. Jesse had eight sons, and in Saul’s time he was very old. 13 Jesse’s three oldest sons had followed Saul to the war: The firstborn was Eliab; the second, Abinadab; and the third, Shammah. 14 David was the youngest. The three oldest followed Saul, 15 but David went back and forth from Saul to tend his father’s sheep at Bethlehem.

16 For forty days the Philistine came forward every morning and evening and took his stand.

17 Now Jesse said to his son David, “Take this ephah[d] of roasted grain and these ten loaves of bread for your brothers and hurry to their camp. 18 Take along these ten cheeses to the commander of their unit. See how your brothers are and bring back some assurance[e] from them. 19 They are with Saul and all the men of Israel in the Valley of Elah, fighting against the Philistines.”

20 Early in the morning David left the flock in the care of a shepherd, loaded up and set out, as Jesse had directed. He reached the camp as the army was going out to its battle positions, shouting the war cry. 21 Israel and the Philistines were drawing up their lines facing each other. 22 David left his things with the keeper of supplies, ran to the battle lines and asked his brothers how they were. 23 As he was talking with them, Goliath, the Philistine champion from Gath, stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance, and David heard it. 24 Whenever the Israelites saw the man, they all fled from him in great fear.

25 Now the Israelites had been saying, “Do you see how this man keeps coming out? He comes out to defy Israel. The king will give great wealth to the man who kills him. He will also give him his daughter in marriage and will exempt his family from taxes in Israel.”

26 David asked the men standing near him, “What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?”

27 They repeated to him what they had been saying and told him, “This is what will be done for the man who kills him.”

28 When Eliab, David’s oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, “Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle.”

29 “Now what have I done?” said David. “Can’t I even speak?” 30 He then turned away to someone else and brought up the same matter, and the men answered him as before. 31 What David said was overheard and reported to Saul, and Saul sent for him.

32 David said to Saul, “Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him.”

33 Saul replied, “You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a young man, and he has been a warrior from his youth.”

34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, 35 I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. 37 The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”

Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”

38 Then Saul dressed David in his own tunic. He put a coat of armor on him and a bronze helmet on his head. 39 David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them.

“I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them.” So he took them off. 40 Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.

41 Meanwhile, the Philistine, with his shield bearer in front of him, kept coming closer to David. 42 He looked David over and saw that he was little more than a boy, glowing with health and handsome, and he despised him. 43 He said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 44 “Come here,” he said, “and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals!”

45 David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. 47 All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”

48 As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. 49 Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.

50 So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.

51 David ran and stood over him. He took hold of the Philistine’s sword and drew it from the sheath. After he killed him, he cut off his head with the sword.

When the Philistines saw that their hero was dead, they turned and ran. 52 Then the men of Israel and Judah surged forward with a shout and pursued the Philistines to the entrance of Gath[f] and to the gates of Ekron. Their dead were strewn along the Shaaraim road to Gath and Ekron. 53 When the Israelites returned from chasing the Philistines, they plundered their camp.

54 David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem; he put the Philistine’s weapons in his own tent.

55 As Saul watched David going out to meet the Philistine, he said to Abner, commander of the army, “Abner, whose son is that young man?”

Abner replied, “As surely as you live, Your Majesty, I don’t know.”

56 The king said, “Find out whose son this young man is.”

57 As soon as David returned from killing the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul, with David still holding the Philistine’s head.

58 “Whose son are you, young man?” Saul asked him.

David said, “I am the son of your servant Jesse of Bethlehem.”

Elah Tree

The valley gets it name from the Elah tree, a type of oak or terebinth tree.  This large and old Elah tree still remains in the valley, reminding visitors of the day when trees proliferated in the Shephelah (cf. 1 Kings 10:27).

The Theological Significance of the Veil

http://www.veilsbylily.com/the-theological-significance-of-the-veil/



       

     
****     

This veiling of sacred things speaks to a kind of hiddenness that doesn’t seek to conceal in the negative sense, but rather draw us into the depths of mystery, allowing for the mysterious to unfold. In the Old Testament, Moses veiled his face. The Holy of Holies was veiled. Brides are often veiled before the “veil is lifted.” Even Jesus, the infinite God whose glory is revealed in heaven, is “veiled” before us by the accidents of bread and wine. As a wonderful priest puts it, “Like the effect of the virtue of modesty, by the very fact that something is hidden, it is allowed to become that which it is: mysterious and beautiful.”

Peter R. Breggin, MD: How to Help Deeply Disturbed Persons—Fourth in the" Simple Truth"

There are very, very good solutions to helping disturbed people, but they run counter to the drug companies, to the government programs, to organized medicine. We need the public to be demanding these things. [like Soteria House].

….

and they have a saying that schizophrenia exists between the members of the family and they [open diaglogues and caring, family-oriented programs] are so effective that they rarely use psychiatric drugs …. They have been so effective that the rate of schizophrenia is down to almost zero.

….

We are not ignorant about how to help people. …. But we need you, the public, to say “this is what we want, we want caring havens to go to when we are in desperation.”

To commence Children's Mental Health Week (February 8-14) in the U.K., the Duchess of Cambridge is calling for stronger support for children's emotional well-being. In partnership with Place2BE, an organization that provides emotional support to children in school, Kate Middleton, a vocal supporter of adolescent issues, sat down to discuss the importance of providing young students with the assistance to "cope with life's challenges."

"Every child deserves to grow up knowing their potential and feeling confident that they won't fall at the first hurdle," The Duchess began. "With early support, they can learn to manage their emotions and feelings and know when to seek help," she later added.

Ephesians 5:8-14New International Version (NIV)

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:

                              “Wake up, sleeper,
                                          rise from the dead,
                                                           and Christ will shine on you.”

The manner of receiving holy Communion

To receive the Eucharist on our tongue, he said, is to signify our humility before the Lord and to recognize that it is God himself who feeds us. [emphasis added]

From what I have personally seen and been shown, it is God who feeds us the bread of life, either personally or through the priest or other celebrant. He feeds His children by mouth [like all children], not in the hands. He give us a new heart and a new spirit and feeds us the holy bread of life Himself. Holy communion of bread from God is not given in the hands. God himself feeds us the bread of life in our mouth.

                  A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you …

 

                                                                                                                 Ezekiel 36:26


  


                                                                                     

 

While doing a Bible study about conversation, the heart and speech, I noticed a few differences in a few versions of the Bible. Although I am Catholic and have a Catholic Bible, I favor most times the King James version and the language therein. I actually have about three or four different versions of the Bible and also appreciate that I can go online and get a translation from any or most versions of the Bible at several locations.

 

Here are a few links that I use:  http://www.biblestudytools.com/bible-versions/, https://www.biblegateway.com/ and http://www.allbibles.com/t-bibleversions.aspx.

 

More specifically, our Bible Study is called Conversation Peace [by mary a. kassian [sic], Lifeway Press, Nashville TN, 2015, pg. 39] and is about conversation, learning to speak and listen effectively, tame the tongue and other related matters. While doing the study I needed to read Proverbs 27:19 as it related to the heart and in looking at the Catholic version of one Bible and the King James version I found two very different interpretations or translations that I feel that I should mention.
Here they are from
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+27%3A19&version=NIV:

 

Proverbs 27:19   New International Version (NIV)

19 As water reflects the face,
    so one’s life reflects the heart.[a]

 

Proverbs 27:19  King James Version (KJV)

19 As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.

 

Proverbs 27:19   Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

19 As in water face answers to face,
    so the mind of man reflects the man.

 

Do you see where mind is in place of heart in the last translation?

 

            Check out some other versions if you wish at the above site. The heart and mind are two very different things so how come the translations are so different? Why do some say heart and one says mind? Two very different meanings …

 

           The mind is reined in by God through the heart, not the other way around.

                  Angels live from the heart.



 
         

   …for we do not fly with wings of this world but with wings of the Holy Spirit.

So I have a question or two or more:

1.    Do you think having sex and using birth control are matters of necessity or personal choice?

2.    Do we have to have sex to survive and live life fully?

3.    Do you think that paying for birth control should be part of basic health rights if it is a choice as opposed to a medical necessity?

4.    If so, then if having sex and using birth control are a matter of choice, generally speaking in most instances, then how come people want to force those who do not believe in paying for birth control because it violates their religious beliefs, to pay for something that is not, at least in most instances, a medical necessity or necessary to save a life?

There is such a thing as the shame of a warrior.  King, Queen, rich, poor ... anyone.  Perhaps it comes from this life or from another but it is known to the person and to God but not by anyone else in this world, unless God chooses to reveal it in some manner.

Remember that our behavior or what we have done in the past, or what has been done to us, is not who we are as a person or a soul. Remember that God loves us unconditionally, forgives us, even for murder and other evils, clears the slate and washes us clean when we repent and turn to Him. All is forgiven.

This shame can make us more determined, stronger and many other things, including becoming a very fierce warrior on behalf of God, especially because of His endless love, His forgiveness, His mercy and His grace but shame need not stay with us forever. God's love can heal this too.

 

Romans 3:23 New International Version (NIV)

                   23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

 

                                                                     except for one unblemished lamb, who is our Lord and Savior.

SHAME:

Shame is often under intense anger or rage. It is more comfortable or often much easier to be angry than it is to feel ashamed or hurt. Your behavior, what you have done or what has been done to you is not who you are as a person or as a spirit. 



                                            "Shame and anger or rage hold hands."

       …The same is true with someone who has been deeply shamed. That shame can 
        develop into repetitive thoughts of guilt or obsessive-compulsive behaviors, all ways
        of controlling the shame. In fact, all obsessive-compulsive behaviors are just that – 
        strategies developed by the mind to keep a person’s deeper feelings dissociated.

Why the Church Needs a Commission on Deaconesses
http://www.crisismagazine.com/2016/church-needs-commission-deaconesses#.V0Mv7dozqts.mailto

On the contrary, a study of the deaconess tradition would reveal the important role that the deaconess played in the development of all-female institutions of women in service as women to the Church. The story of the deaconess explains how she—along with widows and virgins—became a living embodiment of the feminine genius in the Church precisely by maintaining gender distinctions rather than eliminating them.

Study: MRI scans prove schizophrenic brains attempt self-repair

Now that the research team has found that brain tissue can indeed repair itself, even at a minimal rate, their next step is reportedly to continue regularly scanning the brains of patients with early schizophrenia.

"These findings are important not only because of their novelty and the rigor of the study, but because they point the way to the development of targeted treatments that potentially could better address some of the core pathology in schizophrenia," explains Dr. Jeffrey Reiss, another member of the research team from the London health Sciences Centre.

Ave Maria, FL, Sapientia Press of Ave Maria University, 2010.

 

“One thing is certain: When the time has come, nothing which is man made will subsist. One day, all human accomplishments will be reduced to a pile of ashes. But every single child to whom a woman has given birth will live forever, for he has been given an immortal soul made to God's image and likeness. In this light, the assertion of de Beauvoir that 'women produce nothing' becomes particularly ludicrous.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgX0NYBdZMA




                                             It's all about the heart.

It's all about the heart. It's all about returning to the heart as a person, as a people, as a church and returning to our own hearts and to the very heart of God. It's about learning to love through everything and not running away, about being vulnerable and open to love and even hurts as well. It's being open to great joy and to another person and to God in His ways and even if not so easy to see at times, love in all its expressions. This could be said better but for now just know that it's all about what is in our hearts and love and God.
