Awesome.


The vastness of the universe

can be seen

in the starry night.

And the artistry

of God

in tiny wildflowers.

Business.


The New Paradigm in business will manifest like a family business.

The purpose of business will not be profit alone but the provision of employment for men and women.

Ideally managers will treat their employees and workers like sons and daughters.
The hostility between employers and their employees will cease and all will help as God helps us.

But it still has to add up.

Business must make modest profits.

The equalizing power of Aquarius will see the wealth of the rich diminish and the income of the poor increase.

This may come about voluntarily if the rich are able to overcome their fears.
But if not there will be international legislation which will bring this about.

Aquarius will not tolerate a huge disparity between rich and poor.

All must be able to live.

No Rock Music.


The New Paradigm is emerging in the consciousness of humanity now.

The lead is being taken by Progressive Christians who are rejecting negative, traditional doctrines and adopting new, positive positions.

There is much agreement between Progressive Christians and those who call themselves Spiritual but not Religions.

Unfortunately at present both these demographics accept rock music.
Some hark back to the 1960s and others endorse contemporary rock music.

But rock music has a dark and insidious secret.

Since the 1960s rock musicians have practiced black magic and Satanism in their music and videos.  Pacts with the devil and the religion of death have poisoned their creativity.

Sin, wickedness, filth, backtracking, darkness, and hell-fire all appear in their songs.  And they are always ready with an alternative explanation.

People take things at face value.
Poison and sabotage are hidden beneath.

So there is only one answer.

No rock music.

The White Light.


The White Light

innocence, truth, and love.


It sweeps away

all fear and shame

as from above

we are born again.

Love and Fear.


What is it that stops us from manifesting love?

Incorrect ideation - false images of God, such as a moral arbiter, or an enforcer of rewards and punishments give rise to false doctrines and dogmas, such as penal substitution, or original sin.

These things get in the way of love.
They can even cause hatred and murder.

A belief in the existence of hell can cause the most heinous crimes, like torture and execution.

But ultimately what stops us from loving is fear.

All false doctrines, including the existence of hell, are based on fear.

Look a little deeper below the surface and you will find fear.

This begins and ends with the fear of God.

And when we overcome our fear we are able to manifest love.

Torture.


The only thing which is worse than death is torture.

Dictators, tyrants, criminals, governments, and Satanists believe that if they torture their enemies they will submit to their will.  The fear of torture and death will keep them in line.

But Jesus said, "'Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you on my account.
"'Rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.'"  Matthew 5:11,12 (NRSV)

The martyrs went to heaven.
Their bodies were tortured and killed on earth.
But their souls went to heaven.

Once you realize this the fear of torture is gone and you will rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in heaven.

The Truth.


While I am in the world

I will bear witness

to the truth.

No matter what is popular.

No matter what is common.

No matter what is normal.

I will not be threatened.

I will not be afraid.

I will bear witness

to the truth.

Backwards.


Why do those who worship Satan practice religion backwards?

The answer is simple: Sex.

Because they believe that the Church (and therefore God) is anti-sex they reject the Church and sell their souls to the devil in order to get sex.

They believe that practicing religion backwards is rewarded by Satan with whatever they want.

But because sex is love their ultimate motivation is love.

The other thing that they are interested in is money.

It can be noted that most of them come from poor backgrounds and the fear of poverty drives them.  They are so afraid of poverty that they are prepared to sell their souls to avoid it.
So their motivation is fear.

These two motivations - love and fear - are ultimately forgivable.

 So we can pray for them to be forgiven and reconciled to God.

The Minutes.


Every minute

of every hour

is precious.


Another moment

blessed

with life.

The Hours.


Each hour is blessed
in its own unique way:

Dawn's rosy glow
hails the entrance
of the sun.

White light
cools the morning.

The heat of the day
peaks at noon.

Yellow light
dapples the afternoon.

Primary colors
streak the sunset.

The warmth of early evening.

The darkness of midnight.

The chill of the early hours.

Lead again
to the drama of dawn.

Sports.


There is nothing wrong with sport in itself.

What is wrong with sport is the win-at-all-costs attitude and philosophy which has grown up around it.

No one likes a loser.

Losing is pain.

Winning is being successful.

No one likes a failure.

Failure is humiliation.

But Jesus said, "'many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.'"  Mark 10:31 (NRSV)

This refers to the values of the Kingdom of God as set out in the Beatitudes.

And these values are the opposite of the values of the world.

"'For the Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance; but the Lord looks on the heart.'"  1 Samuel 16:7b (NRSV)

The Servant of All.


In what way was Jesus a servant?

Did he do the dishes?  No.
Did he cook the meals?  No.
Did he clean the house or do the washing?  No.
Did he clothe the naked?  No.

He did feed the hungry. Yes.
He gave sight to the blind.  Yes.
He did make sick people whole.  Yes.

But this is not what is traditionally thought of as service - being a servant.

So in what way was Jesus the servant of all?

My understanding of this is that Jesus gave to those who sought him out exactly what they needed.  He was in the unique position of knowing what God was like. And he was able to communicate this to his followers.  (Although they constantly misinterpreted him).

He was able to see how God thought we should act.
And he communicated this through parables.

But he was not a servant in the sense that he did peoples' chores for them.
He did not work in the worldly sense.

He was able to see.
And the Father answered his prayers.
