I’ll follow you down🎶
A young couple in love picking dandelions in a hazy, dreamlike field in the mountains…walking hand in hand to the mountain’s edge, gazing out at the water below. A romantic moment captured at the base of a cascading waterfall. A solitary place to wash the world away and live in the moment for two people who seem to need nothing but each other to enjoy true happiness. A bird’s eye view of an evolving relationship that culminates in a wedding and a white picket fence. Images like these would seem to be out of place in a hard rock music video, but Shinedown makes it work perfectly within the confines of the video for their most recent single, “I’ll Follow You,” off of their hit album, Amaryllis. “Ill Follow You” is an uncompromising song. Literally, It’s a song about “No Compromise” It’s a song that is about not settling for anything else, not settling for second best. The song is full of illustrations of that. Shinedown use the lyrics like an artist uses a paint brush to tell the story of no compromise devotion. In the song it is devotion and no compromise to a person but you don’t have to go too far to appreciate that this sentiment could be carried over to most spheres of life. The theme dedication and no compromise is in the reading for today. We join uncompromising Elijah on Mount Carmel with the prophets of Baal in 1 Kings 18. This is where Elijah taunts the prophets to prove whose God is greater, that that he might get his uncompromising message across to the people of YeHoVaH/God. Today has been rough my friends. INSOMNIA is horrible! I still found the time to read the word today and felt led to write this. The theme dedication and no compromise was is in my reading for today. We join uncompromising Elijah on Mount Carmel with the prophets of Baal in 1 Kings 18. This is where Elijah taunts the prophets to prove whose God is greater, that that he might get his uncompromising message across to the people of YeHoVaH/God. This is a fairly well known passage in the Bible because it relays the story of one man, Elijah, making a stand for YeHoVaH/God against an evil king and 450 prophets of Baal. Elijah recommended that they have a competition to see whose God was stronger, and the prophets of Baal set up an offering on a wooden alter, asking Baal to send fire from heaven to consume the offering. After they failed, Elijah instructed the men to dig a trench around the altar and pour water over the offering until it was so saturated that the water overflowed and filled the trench. Elijah then called out to God, who sent fire to consume the offering, the water, the alter, the rocks, and even the dust around the altar. Seeing this, the people fell on their faces and worshipped the Lord. Elijah is unflinching in his devotion – He Follows YeHoVaH/God, the prophets of Baal do not, Elijah shows no compromise in delivering God’s verdict in this situation in order to have God’s people change direction and turn back to God. Elijah was uncompromising in delivering the message of relationship through these circumstances to all who were present and to all who would hear. That God wants to turn hearts towards himself in relationship. Elijah would not give up on this message. He was devoted to it and would not back down, give up or compromise on it. We too are invited to be like Elijah in the passage, we too are encouraged to stand our ground in an age where people are drawn away from God by other things. We too are heralds of a message of God’s desire for relationship. We too are ambassadors of his kingdom and his rule. We too are to be uncompromising in out character and manner of life. all for the benefit of others. Elijah had bottle, The question is do we? The problem for the prophets was that they were faltering between two opinions. This also was true of the nation as a whole. This is the definition of compromise. In Shinedown’s song we find the opposite sentiment “Without a doubt I’m on your side, There’s nowhere else that I would rather be, I’m not about to compromise,” The uncompromising truth was that Elijah stands for is displayed in verses 36-39. Amen?
Hallelujah and Glory to God in The Name of Yeshua!
I wanna thank everyone who’s been praying in agreement with and for Brother Farhad of Pakistan and the persecuted church in the east.
If you haven’t, that’s okay. Now is a great time to start interceding regularly for the persecuted church of Yeshua/Jesus. The Lord is on the move in a Great way around the world. He is Faithful and His Mercy endures forever! Let us cry out with and on behalf of our Beloved Brother in The Lord today.
Here is the prayer he sent me last night. Thanks. God bless!
“In Christ, Dear Heavenly Father God Almighty, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, The God, Who I am God, God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and God of Israel, The Elohim Yahweh Yirah, I faithfully come before your throne of Grace, Mercy and Majesty of Christ. As I accept Jesus Christ my personal in my Christian family from birth to be born again Christian. I love your Holy Words – The Holy Bible with depth of my heart, mind and strength. When you chose me (John 15: 16) to serve you in this world as obedient for last 16 years regularly on the daily basis, I devoted myself for Your divine services to serve human. I never walk on pre – planned projects, time lines, funds but I had been walking by faith in Christ according to Your Promises. You are Lord Jesus Christ that you became human for humanity, who had been walking in the darkest worlds; You become light for whole world (Matthew 5: 14, John 8: 12) to reconcile man to God.
I happily started my journey of Faith in Christ to serve You as immature child, Because you like child – like Faith who believes (Luke 18: 15 – 17), trust in You Heavenly Father, Even I did not know politics of world, tricks & politics of devil over churches, denominations, attacks over servants of Your Holy Words – The Holy Bible, Sons of God, disciples, Prophets, Saints, Apostles and men of God. Even I never imagine that you will use me as like Prophet Job who had been rejected by all due to His faith in you. For whom there is handing over and taking over among You God and devil ( Job 1:12 ). I thank you Lord of Host, that you did use me on time lines of disciple, care taker, watchman, Prophet Job, saints and Apostles. I thank that you did not keep me on the time line of sinners but on righteous.
I thank you that You gave me power to walk faithfully in Christ in all situation, lacks and satisfied in Holy Words – Bible, If someone wants you – as disciple of Faith in Christ to go with himself/herself one step, You go more steps with them blessing of Gospel. I thank you that you kept me safe & sound among other nations as peace maker and ready reference with Holy Spirit. I thank you that you gave me power to go through dangers of life’ risks, extremists of faiths and you always kept me in your supernatural provision and power over worldly wealth, you always proved that you are the Sovereign God of Majesty over all kinds of world.
How wonderful and beautiful You are, You give us eternal conscious hope through Your Holy Spirit– The Holy Bible to believe and walk by faith in Christ not by sight 2 Cor 5: 7, Mathew 6: 31). Even where majority of believers surprised over me, How I am walking by faith in Christ in the sinful, materialistic and tough and selfish world. Having all responsible of family, children, communities, churches, and old parents, even I might not do all that as just human. Even fellow human amazed that how I can keep vision & mission of salvation, peace, restoration for persecuted communities, Refugees and Asylum seekers even for rejected human being under a rejection ( Mark 8: 35 ) , ignorance, lack of funds – preplaned projects, devil’ politics over churches. How amazing is your Divine Grace, You provide me basic needs, visas, tickets and residents anywhere in this unrest world to keep up your missionary work for humanity. Even I don’t know that how you keep me focused on your Holy Words – the Holy Bible’ Work of counseling, advocating, reconciling, restoring, teaching, managing and preaching for peace among human being. Even fellow human are amazed that how I have crucified my flesh’ desire on the cross among other nations’ different faith in this sinful world.
You gave me amazing World of spiritual realm in this materialistic world ( 1 John 4: 4 – 5)
where there is nothing lack, where majority of human live for bread, sex, glory, power, money and planed things of worlds.
I thank you that you have power over forces of darkness and devil. You are true in Your Holy Words – The Holy Bible’ promises who believe, and you are creator of Heaven and earth Not for one or some countries. But you are God of whole worlds (John 3: 16); You are Almighty God over all earthly gods who rules this world. You are Holiest of Holy, But world’ gods are full of sins. You want from all human that they must be Holy. You are also creator of devil – god of world ( 2 Cor 4: 4) , Devil tempted our Lord Jesus on earth for daily basic needs of life – bread and glory ( Mathew 4: 3 ).
I thank You Lord of Host, that you did use and do use me for your Glorious and Holiest work. Even I had been presented wrongly in an ugly ways by different state of minds, different faith – gods according to their desires. But you always keep me on your focused work for salvation and peace of humanity. I ask your power in Your spiritual realm world, to give me more extension to search your more divine galaxies’ glory as I am going to be old, Father God, give my life partner and save me from temptation, Dear GOD, give me office to work for you according to my search for more research work for peace and salvation of humanity. I request healing for my mother, provision for their basic needs of life, I request for providing me visa – permit, ticket to keep up your good work on an Asylum seekers & refugees and rejected communities’ human. I thank for funds that you are going to provide me from your divine treasure. Because I had been ignored and rejected according to Worldly points of views’ work or lists of funded pastors, bishops and leaders for projects and plans. Your Divine Grace is sufficient for me to spread Good News of Jesus Christ in this wicked world. Your divine Holy words project is not their priority, But your divine mission is my priority and my commitment. I thank you that you had chosen me for your glorious spiritual realm work. I believe and receive in mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen.”
Praise The Lord, all the earth!!!!! Amen! ❤️
On the way back to the car along my blessed afternoon walk, I reached for my phone to put on something faster to wrap things up with some pep. I wound up looking through Sara Evans songs. I came across Revival and because of the title, I had to listen. I looked for it on YouTube and I found this video about the song.
This song means a lot to me. I really enjoy it. It is my prayer that The Lord blesses all of you with a little revival in your hearts tonight as you listen to this song and sing along in your soul. The Lord is at work in the earth. It’s not over yet. These may be the end times, but God’s People are still here to be The Light! HalleluJah! A little revivial!
🎶And if I say to you tomorrow. Take my hand, child, come with me.
It’s to a castle I will take you, where what’s to be, they say will be. Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky.
But the wind won’t blow, you really shouldn’t go, it only goes to show
That you will be mine, by takin’ our time🎶
The song is about a man trying to take his beloved woman to a magical place. He wants to be the ringleader, as she will follow him wherever he goes. The only thing that can stop them from a magical journey is “what is” and “what should never be.” Those are the woman’s two choices: to follow him (what is) or to leave him (what should never be). She can have everything she’s ever wanted, the majestic sunrise, all her dreams come true, but if she doesn’t get those things, then she can only blame herself.
🎶So if you wake up with the sunrise, and all your dreams are still as new. And happiness is what you need so bad, girl, the answer lies with you🎶
This song is about inner contentment, about true inner happiness. The kind of happiness that comes from inside, from a deep thankfulness with what is going on in your life. Be content in what you already have. Remind yourself that you have food on the table, a roof over your head, friends and a loving family. We think that happiness and contentment is conditional and only comes once we’ve reached our dreams, whether it be a dream job, dream relationship, dream financial situation. Now even if those dreams do not come true, we can still be grateful, thankful, content. It has taken Jeffrey A. Hale 48 years to learn that happiness can not be found in “Things” as they are only “Things” Happiness or contentment is in our attitude to life. The song is right “the answer lies with you”
“Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need”
Paul the great apostle writes about true happiness and contentment coming from the inside. He describes it as something he has learned and knows. “I know” and “I have learned” Facebook friends, the poignant question is “Where does our happiness and contentment come from?” Is it founded in the things we have or does it come from a deeper place. Paul says “for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.” To be content when you have nothing as well as when you have much. Paul could also be writing about the power within that keeps his life on track. We cannot do anything without the power of the Holy Spirit that lives within us. The Holy Spirit himself brings us to the place of deep happiness and contentment. The world would be a happier place if all of us learned to be content and happy not in “Stuff” or “Things” but happiness and being content. Amen?
🎶We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home🎶
I always thought Nutshell by Alice In Chains as Layne’s living suicide note. Beautiful vocals & some of the most tasteful and soulful guitar playing you’ll ever hear. The singer Layne Staley died from a mixture of heroin and cocaine, known as speedball. The death certificate reads Staley’s death resulted from “an acute intoxication due to the combined effects of opiate (heroin) and cocaine.” The autopsy concluded that Staley died on April 5, two weeks before his body was found, and the same day that fellow grunge pioneer Kurt Cobain died by suicide in 1994. Staley’s death was classified as “accidental.” When I heard Layne passed I felt, “Layne wore his soul on the outside. He was luminous … too tender for this world. He was an amazing musician, an inspiration, and a comfort to so many. He made great music and gifted it to the world.” Anyone can become addicted to anything. There are many addictions in life, eating, smoking, booze, sex, pornography, the stock market, gambling, tattoos, lying, stealing, gossiping, et cetera. Addiction has a very subtle nature about it, a deceptive element, overcoming the victim before one even realizes what has happened. The nature of addiction is that a person gets sucked in before they know it, entangled hopelessly in the web of a deadly Black Widow spider. That is the nature of sin and addiction, the more you try to escape and free yourself, the more entangled you become. This is why it is so critically important that a person be born again, having the Holy Spirit coming to live within them (Romans 8:9). The very second you trust upon Yeshua/Jesus, the only begotten Son of YeHoVaH/God, your sins are forgiven and the Holy Spirit comes to indwell your body. This is the only true and lasting hope for addicts. Believe me I’ve been there! Life is too short to allow sin to overcome and ruin one’s life. The way to avoid addiction is to be aware that it can easily happen if you’re not careful. Our sicko society places all sorts of temptations, evil influences, lusts, worldly music, and other harmful things in front of our youth, while never warning them of what can happen. You never hear warnings about the consequences of fornication, abortion, pornography, homosexuality, feminism, divorce, or other sins. Instead teens are handed condemns at government schools and Planned Herodhood is invited into each school. It’s insane! The safest way to prevent becoming addicted is to have the Biblical mindset of 1st Timothy 6:8, “And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” Hasatan’s crowd can only tempt you if you desire something. YeHoVaH/God says to be satisfied with simply food and clothing. In all honesty, you don’t need all the electronic toys and gadgets, cellphones, internet, new car, et cetera. Those who live for materialistic things are some of the most miserable, mean, and angry people in the world. Death is right around the corner. You cannot take any of it with you. Only what’s done for Yeshua/Jesus will last. Certainly it is ok to own possessions and a nice home, car, whatever, but don’t ever prioritize money, career, or things above truth, doing what’s right, treating people as you want to be treated, and obeying YeHoVaH/God with a grateful heart. Facebook friends, the most important decision you’ll ever make is where you’re going to spend eternity after the resurrection. The decision is in fact yours alone to make. I’ve already made my choice. How about you?
My good friend at work Robert Tunin, always quotes this song “Freewill” (If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice). “Freewill” is the second track on Rush’s 1980 album Permanent Waves. It is written by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson with lyrics by Neil Peart. The song’s lyrics deal with the subject of free will, emphasizing that free will is not a gift but rather a choice, explaining that no one can attempt to evade the fact that they must choose, but that evasion is itself a choice. I believe “Freewill” is Neil Peart’s attempt to proclaim a disbelief in YeHoVaH. There are many things that Peart gets wrong in the song, and many things he gets wrong about YeHoVaH. The main thing is that he sees the idea of Our Father as some impersonal puppet master and that somehow a belief in spiritual things is futile. This a song I have heard many times and also played in a few bands I was in. The song is a great musical piece and the words hang together lyrically. But there is no truth in it. Yes there is “Freewill” YeHoVaH has designed the human family with “Freewill” and the danger is that with free will comes the “Freewill” to reject Him. This is the one continuous thing since the garden of Eden incident that humankind has “Free-willed” and taken the choice to reject Him. We live in a world that has rejected YeHoVaH and the idea of God. The bible tells the story of a God and the plan of restoration. From Genesis to Revelation we find a story that involves hundreds of characters, dramatic scenes, battles, intrigue, love, abandonment, loss of cities, slavery, captivity. Biblical history tells the story of a God who is deeply committed to a relationship with his creation. Far away from the idea that He is distant. He is present in his nearness. He is not in some fluffy cloud heaven but inhabits the world today. YeHoVaH gives everyone the freedom to choose Him or reject Him. The bible is littered with people who have made the choice to reject or to receive Him. Rejection has consequences as well as Receiving has consequences. When we often talk about “Freewill” we talk about it in a way that is individualistic and selfish not a “Freewill” that is concerned with the world and selfless. “Freewill” has been used in the past to justify the most horrible of actions and inhumanities. Facebook friends, let’s not go there again. In John’s gospel we find John the apostle talking about those that receive or reject Yeshua.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John speaks of what it looks like to receive Yeshua and what are the consequences of receiving Yeshua. John’s prologue starts like reading Genesis. We find YeHoVaH in it, we find choice in it, we find here a description of what He is like in this prologue. We find a description also of what happens to the person who receives and does not reject Yeshua. We also find Yeshua’s role in the creation it’s self and the relationship that a person will come into because of their reception or welcome of Him. John says that we become family, we become children of God. People who are now related to God. The old order of things now reversed. That which happened in the Garden of Eden now over because of Yeshua. The “Freewill” choice to chose has had it’s fulfilment when Yeshua is chosen. When he is received. We become people who are in relationship with YeHoVaH’s. The Rush song “Freewill” is an anthem to Neil Peart’s understanding of the way things are. My own understanding is not like Peart’s. Paradise was lost in the Garden but, it is now found in Our Messiah Yeshua. That would be my own understanding. Far from being puppets at the hands of an impersonal puppet master. Those who receive Yeshua take their rightful place as children of YeHoVaH. “Freewill” has led me to the feet of Yeshua and I have chosen to follow him”. What about you? Amen?
I received an email today from a friend in Iowa. He is a “New Believer.” It reads,”I would like to help others, but knowing what to say and how to say it stops me in my tracks.” So friends, how do share your simple faith without making people run and hide from you? I replied to him with one of my favorite quotes “You are what you do….Not what you say you will do.” People can spot a phony from a mile away. The absolute worst thing you can do is say one thing and do another. If you aren’t committed to applying the principles of Yeshua in your own life, you will not only be ineffective, but will be seen as insincere and phony. Most people aren’t as interested in what you say, as they are in seeing how it’s working in your life. I remember before he passed away, Johnny Cash did a stripped down version of “Personal Jesus” on his 2002 album American IV, The Man Comes Around. Martin Gore, the singer of Depeche Mode, revealed to The London Times that the band were unaware that Cash had covered this song. When they heard about the country legend’s recording, the threesome were naturally thrilled. Said Gore, “I think when you’re somebody of Johnny Cash’s caliber, you don’t ask for permission.” Cash explained why he chose to cover this song (as quoted in Mojo October 2013) “I heard that as a gospel song. And if you think of it as a gospel song, it works really well. We didn’t have any major disagreement over that song, I just heard that a couple of people had recorded it, the writer wanted me to try it, and I did, and I loved it. And I went for it.” This was inspired by Priscilla Presley’s book Elvis And Me, where she described their relationship. Martin Gore of Depeche Mode said, “It’s a song about being a Jesus for somebody else, An Example, someone to give you hope and care. It’s about how Elvis was her man and her mentor and how often that happens in love relationships, how everybody’s heart has a compassionate and caring side to it that is a supreme example to others. In my Bible reading today I found Yeshua washing his disciples feet in John 13:1-15. Yeshua shows them how to be an example how to be a “Personal Jesus” to each other. There’s nothing worse than somebody trying to preach to you about something going on in your life when all you can think about is finding a way to fix it. At that moment, the last thing you want to see is somebody carrying a Bible, acting like they know exactly what you need and how you feel. And truth be told, when they ask you to read from their Bible, you’re thinking you’d rather hit them over the head with it! This is the very scenario that makes the concept of sharing your faith so intimidating. Most people would like to help others, but knowing what to say and how to say it stops you in your tracks. So how do share your simple faith without making people run and hide from you? Facebook friends, the best way to share your faith is to be an example. People will want to know how you can be peaceful in the storm, why your kids are doing so well, why your marriage is so great, and how you know for sure about your purpose in life. And when they ask, you’ll have all kinds of great stuff to share. Being a “Personal Jesus” to some one else is what He was doing at the supper table with his disciples. Being an example is perhaps the most important thing you will do in life. Amen? https://youtu.be/jQcNiD0Z3MU
🎶Is this love that I’m feeling,
Is this the love, that I’ve been searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming,
This must be love,
‘Cos it’s really got a hold on me,
A hold on me…🎶.
“Is This Love” became one of the most popular hits for Whitesnake. The song “Is This Love”? Is really about just that……… “LOVE”. It’s about a question? Behind the question is a hidden question, a deeper question. How do I identify love in the first place? Of course everyone needs love, deserves love, longs for love, and in a way cannot function properly as a human being unless they know love in some way. Whether in a marriage, or love that exists in a brotherhood, love that exists in friendship. Love helps us all function as human beings. The song is asking really “What does love look like?” There are as many books written on the subject of “Love” as the planets in the sky. Therapists offer love courses to identity the blockages to love. Even the church has cashed in on the scene. From the “Marriage Course” to the University of Notre Dame in the US offering a degree course in “Love” Theology.
Just think of the many songs that have been written about love in our lifetime and that appear on social media? We’re talking about all of iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google, YouTube, Topspin, Rhapsody, and now Facebook all have “Love” songs. It is reckoned that there are about 97 million songs that contain thoughts about love. I don’t know how the stats are researched but it gives us an idea that love is something that is prized and wanted by just about everyone on the planet. Facebook friends, the Bible is a book that speaks of love from the from the snake attacking Adam’s love in the garden, to king David giving into his base desires in 1 Samuel 11 and his prayer of wrong doing in Psalm 51. Love is seen in the prophets, in their fiery condemnation of the people of YeHoVaH for backsliding and turning away from His laws and His love for them. Love is seen in the book of proverbs the love of passing things down from father to son and the love demonstrated in Proverbs 31 with “The Good Wife” Love is seen in the book of song of Solomon, it’s the most erotic book in the bible. Love appears in the New Testament with Yeshua’s birth and thought his life he offers people love. He dies a death of love, because YeHoVaH loves us (John 3:16) Love offers a way to be free. Perhaps the most famous chapter in the New Testament is 1 Corinthians 13 – Which is the answer to the search for “What does love look like?” and how do I recognize it when I see it. “Is this Love” – Paul’s answer would be “Yes”. Is This Love”? – What does love look like. 1 Corinthians is a description of what Love looks like. Real love, dependable love – Love you can rely on. Love that remains. This is the kind of love you find in Yeshua It’s the kind of love that you should find in the church. I’ll leave you to figure out if you can see it in Our Fathers people or not. This is the kind of love that I’m longing for in all my relationships. The kind of love that is strong and true. I know that this love will make me a better man, a better father, a better friend and a better disciple of Yeshua. Have you found love? Are you like the song “Is This Love” trying to recognize love and are not sure? Where ever you are in life’s journey one thing is for sure…… You need love. This passage in 1 Corinthians helps us recognize it when it comes. Because infatuation and lust won’t stand the test of time, infatuation and lust will never sustain us though our whole life….. only love will. Amen? https://youtu.be/ujnH4yNqL8E
