Love will keep us Together or Tear Us Apart

Love is Blind (to Truth)

It baffles the tar out of me that ANYONE would be a Democrat these days. Or a Muslim. Or a Socialist. Are these people nuts? What kind of insanity justifies their thinking?

Love

They love their belief. So much so they overlook, turn a deaf ear, ignore any logical explanation of why they are … as I heard someone once say,”Lost as a goose in a snowstorm”.

How do I know this?

cue the Beatles … “because I’ve been in love before and I know that love is more … than just holding hands”

When a soul latches on to something he/she/it believes in and they know in their knower … it’s hard to shake. When something happens to someone and it rings true down deep, convincing them otherwise is nigh near impossible. True or not, doesn’t matter. If they BELIEVE it true, to them TRUE it is. No amount of argument, statistics or even facts will sway them.

It reminds me of a young one that won’t hear anything bad about their future mate.

Liberals, for the most part, are in love with their fellow man. They want equality for all and willing to give all to get it. Liberal politicians know this and exploit it to the max.

This is why the “swamp” we call Congress is so corrupt.

Conservatives, for the most part, are in love with earning and fair play. They are not against charity but know that it can be abused. Conservative politicians also exploit this to the max.


This is why the “swamp” we call Congress is so corrupt.

What’s the answer? Well, barring Yeshua returning and setting us all straight, I gotta say I don’t know.

I just think I see the problem.

Why Am I Jewish?

When I was older, I remember church. I was fascinated by the Preacher. Not a certain Preacher, but any Preacher. The sermons grabbed me. I tried to memorize what they were saying. It seemed so important.

A Psalm for Today … Ps. 94

Psalm 94:1 O יהוה, Ěl of vengeance; O Ěl of vengeance, shine forth!

I was reading this Psalm during my morning prayers. It is the Psalm the Rabbis recite on Wednesdays at the rostrum.

Psa 94:2 Raise Yourself up, O Judge of the earth; Render punishment to the proud.
Psa 94:3 יהוה, how long are the wrong, How long are the wrong going to exult?

With the heated debates on the political scene today, I pondered,”Man, that’s close!” Now look at the next verses.

Psa 94:4 They pour forth words, They speak arrogantly; All the workers of wickedness boast in themselves.
Psa 94:5 They crush Your people, O יהוה, And they afflict Your inheritance.
Psa 94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, And murder the fatherless.

OMG!!! Really!! This was written 2000 years ago and it perfectly describes the doings of Evil today! They crush Your people, O יהוה, … look what happened last Shabbat !!

Psa 94:7 Yet they say, “Yah does not see, And the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ pays no heed.”

Sound familiar? Let’s skip a few verses …

Psa 94:21 They band together against the life of the righteous, And declare innocent blood wrong.

But don’t despair … for we win.

Psa 94:23 And brings back on them their own wickedness, And cuts them off in their own wrongdoing; יהוה our Elohim does cut them off.

I know those who know me know where I stand. I am praying for righteousness to prevail next Tuesday. Our country, our World depends on it. But however it comes out, HaShem (God) is in control and if he deems we should have mercy, we will have mercy.

King of the Hill

When we were kids we used to play a game called ‘King of the Hill’. We would find a hill of dirt and someone would climb to the top and the rest would try to knock him off.

Last night, I heard a Ravi talk about how this is how our internal struggle is today. The Yetzer Hara (evil inclination) and the Yetzer Hatov (good inclination) are fighting to be king of the hill (our soul). This is especially true when it comes to addictions. Our internal demons have won before and will not give up easily. Yeshua (Jesus) talked of overcomers. One of the biggest victories you can have is to be an overcomer. He also said that a Zadeek (Righteous One) does not have this struggle any more. He has completely overcome the Yetzer Hara. Call me a dreamer but, I strive to achieve this one day.

It’s not easy.

It’s not quick.

You must do it over and over again, everyday.

But it you do … oh … if you do … the joy is so sweet and the satisfaction is so lovely.

It’s all worth it.

Report from Spiderluf

It’s in the Heavenlies, so the description is not really possible. One of the Melach’s is approaching Gabriel with a report.

“Here’s the report you asked for yesterday, Your Eminence”

“Did you read it?”, He asked (knowing that he had).

“Yessir, looks like all is good on Monroe residence.”

Report from Spiderluf: Monroe Date Monday April 9, 2018

Subject appears listless. Vitals are nominal. Color is pale. Frequent trips to bathroom.

Last Monday, I was lying in my bed feeling horrible. Some virus had entered our domain (Brenda had it yesterday) was causing terror. In the afternoon, my body was exhausted after several trips to the john that were necessary to expel through the southern end whatever it was that wasn’t supposed to be there.

I looked up the wall and saw a black spot on the ceiling molding. I thought, “hmmm, how’d that get there?”

Then it moved.

Ahhh, a spider. What’s it doing? There’s no food there. Nothing to hang a web on. It moved about a foot to 18 inches and then reversed course and went back to wherever it came from. 

“Looks like they got that bug we sent. I was wondering why we didn’t hear the morning or afternoon Schma (prayer). OK, thanks, that’ll be all”

Why Su Ann Is Talking to Yeshua As We Speak

One of my favorite cousins is in the Afterlife today. Her soul is not trapped in her body any more. This is a sad time for us but I guarantee you not her. She is talking with the Master and finding out  her next mission.

From the Gospels (We call it the Nazarean Codicil).

Mat 22:35 and one of them, one learned in the Torah, did question, trying Him, and saying,
Mat 22:36 “Teacher, which is the great command in the Torah?”
Mat 22:37 And יהושע said to him, “ ‘You shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your mind.’
Mat 22:38 “This is the first and great command.
Mat 22:39 “And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’

יהושע  is Hebrew for Yeshua (Jesus).

Every time I saw Su she was fulfilling this mitzvot (commandment). In the Jewish faith it is the Schma (Schma means to hear and to do). No matter what tests and trials this life gave her, that’s what she did.  I could give you examples and stories but have neither the time nor the talent to do so. Besides, if you knew her, if you met her then you know I’m right.

I love you SuAnne and can’t wait to see you again when I go for my next mission.

The last few months have been rough but she smiled through them because she knew what was ahead. HaShem (G-d) granted me the privilege of being with her last December. She was SO excited. She knew she was about to shed this earthly suit and she was grinning from ear to ear about it. She had questions for me because we both were trying to fulfill the mission laid out in the Schma to the best of our abilities. I was woefully inadequate in explaining what I thought she would be facing.

I know she forgives me because that’s how we show we love each other. We forgive each other.

Goodbye Su … can’t wait till I see you again.

I Am Addicted

I thought that would get your attention. But it is true.

I am addicted. I can’t get through most days without thinking about it.

Situations arise, and my mind goes where it shouldn’t go. How I can get what I shouldn’t get. How can I watch what I shouldn’t watch?

I’ve known a very long time I was addicted. I just dealt with it the best I could.

Which as it turns out wasn’t very good, but what do they say about spilt milk? No tears, regrets, but no tears.

I think psychologists would say that I have an “addictive” personality.

One of the major reasons I got into ‘Religion’ was that it showed me how I could overcome this addiction.

Oh, I guess you’re wondering what my nemesis is. Doesn’t matter, if it makes me feel good or escape from reality (or even a present problem), I am addicted to it. Jewish sages call it the ‘Yatser Hara’ … the evil inclination.

I overcame various addictions in various ways. I was forced, cajoled, brainwashed, etc. but one of the better ways was to convince myself of the harm done.

I’m going to fire off an e-mail to Amazon about their lousy programming. I’ve already cancelled Netflix. I like Amazon Prime because of the free shipping but the free ‘soft’ porn is not helping. Amazing what is considered ‘soft’ today was XXX in the ’60s.

Anyway, I need to get to studying and my day, thought I would get this off my chest.

Have a blessed day and if you too are addicted, hang in there. Fight it with all you’ve got and you will overcome.

That’s how I do it anyway.
