What is Prophetic Writing?
Is it volumes of word-by-word dictation?
Very doubtful, as this would require you to open up your spirit to what ever spirit happened to be around.
The spirit of negative-ness is the opposite of positive-ness
can appear for a time like an Angel of Light, being much more deceitful than the more innocent human mind.
That is why Séances are not a place to meet The Holy Spirit of God.
Did The Holy Spirit direct me to write this?
Partly, and partly most of the words come from my own logic and what I have trusted others to teach me. Anything else I have held suspect, since the age of reason, usually for most of us around seven.
Most of the words here, where not specifically God inspired, the only word The Holy Spirit has ever given me beyond any doubt is the single word of “Equality”.
That includes Equal Rights, Equal Respect, Equal Concern or The Universal Golden Rule, of treating others with equal concern, as you would most want to be treated.
Those words from others, who spoke with God were confirmed as being like “Equality”.
They too will be disputed by the Spirit of negative-ness as not practical, as not from a Biblical God, but when you look at the Biblical definitions of God you find that God is “not a god of partiality. A God of equity, Mercy, Justice, Loving, for when we Love, we live in God and God lives in us. One of the closest Disciples of Jesus, St. John tells us, in his first letter 4:16.
No way can you have partiality, inequity, or any other of those good things like a Holy Love, and have anything but “Equality” instead of inequality!
So most of these words I take responsibility for, some did come from others much wiser than myself.
All of them came from one God Inspired, not from just one culture or kind of conditioning but from all I could learn about, test out, to know the most perfect, most loving for all, just not for myself, or those like myself. A God worthy to worship and follow. B.
The Golden Rule is Universally found in all the major world religions.
It is also a fact that all religions, have some and usually those who are the most outspoken or power hungry who want to limit it to just those who think in the way they have been conditioned and programed to think, limiting it to their own self interest or those who are most like them.
God includes all, for God is a Conscious, Creative Love for All.
We need to go towards that, not make a god of men’s words, which can be twisted to say what ever.
Stick with being with God, acting Consciously, Creatively, Loving to all, even your enemies, whether anyone else does it or not!
UNIVERSAL GOLDEN RULE
Christianity: “All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to
you, do ye so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. ”
Confucianism: “Do not do to others what you would not like yourself.
Then there will be no resentment against you, either in the family or
in the state.” Analects 12:2
Taoism: “Regard your neighbor’s gain as your gain, and your neighbor’s
loss as your own loss.” Tai Shang Kan Yin P’ien
Zoroastrianism: “That nature alone is good which refrains from doing
another whatsoever is not good for itself.” Dadisten-I-dinik, 94,5
Buddhism: “Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find
hurtful.” Udana-Varga 5,1
Hinduism: “This is the sum of duty; do naught onto others what you
would not have them do unto you.”Mahabharata 5,1517
Islam: “No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother
that which he desires for himself.” Sunnah
Judaism: “What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellowman. This is
the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.” Talmud, Shabbat 3id
Peace and Goodwill to all, is our job and goal, leave what others do for God’s Judgement, not from our limited views.
Repetition and Change
Repetition and Change
Repetition and Change, this we can be sure of.
Repetition comes easy to us. Change does not.
It is not easy, especially for those who prefer Inequality, Selfishness, and the Control of others, instead of treating them as equal human beings.
To me God is the Spiritual source of all Matter. A Spirit of Perfect Love, who is not male only, but has female qualities as well. Humans themselves we know have both female as well as male qualities that varies one from the other. Each one unique like no other.
Scriptures tell us humans are created both male and female in the Image of God, who is “not a god of partiality”. Yet our history was written and interpreted primarily by males in control for the past 5000 years, mostly for their benefit. We have allowed this to continue because violence and force has been used to keep the “power of the people” under male control.
A non-violent revolution to treat others more fairly has been going on, at least since Jesus came, who sent Mary Magdalene, after his death and resurrection from the dead, to be the first Apostle to announce “The Good News” to the other Apostles.
They were to teach all people to put this Spirit of Holy Love into their hearts and
to Love One Another, as we love ourselves, even our enemies.
“What you do to the least of these, you do to me”, Jesus taught to those who seek eternal life.
Can’t help but wonder where one’s head and heart is, if claiming to be a Catholic, which means Universal Christian, in not believing in Equal Opportunity, for the female half of God’s Image.
Perhaps they believe or have been taught it was a male only God who created all life in this vast Universe, and females are only to be maids or means of reproduction.
It is easy to have that impression when you live all your life under the powers of our male centered language and culture.
I have come to understand God, as The Spirit of Holy Love, who transcends both sex or race.
Christ chose to come to earth as a human male, as the only way of being heard by many, as females at that time, were not even allowed to even go into the Synagogues, and still are not in some, let alone preach there, on pain of being stoned to death.
It was Jesus who chose as a woman, a long time Disciple and loyal follower, Mary Magdalene, to be the Apostle to the other Apostles, to be the first to announce the “Good News” that is unique to Christianity, the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior.
Our greatest hope of eternal life, after this short span.
Now women, who feel, in their life, a Call of God to preach this Good News and serve at the Lords Table (Altar), are being blocked, at the least, by a fear of change.
The long hard struggle of the Civil Rights movement that ended legal slavery and discrimination, then finally the rights of the female half to vote, only since 1921, in America, after many thousands of years of repression of female rights, is still ongoing.
Many have come to see the female half of God’s Image in a different light. It is my hope and prayer and surely is God’s Will at this time, according to Vatican II,*1, Our last World Council of Christians, way back in 1965, that there should be “an end to discrimination within The Church, as not God’s Will”.

“Malnutrition is the root cause of the deaths of 2.6 million children each year, and the bodies and brains of 450 million more will fail to develop properly due to inadequate diet over the next 15 years unless immediate action is taken.”
The cause of economic inequality are the present laws of making Corporations people,
Something we can do something about and what started and continues to fuel the OCCUPY Movement Internationally.
This recent article articulates much better than I can:

Occupying Corporations: How to Cut Corporate Power
by Bill Quigley
“Corporations are people, my friend.” Mitt Romney at Iowa State Fair.
Corporations are obviously not people. But Romney is accurate in the sense that corporations have hijacked most of the rights of people while evading the responsibilities.
An important part of the social justice agenda is democratizing corporations. This means we must radically change the laws so people can be in charge of corporations. We must strip them of corporate personhood and cut them down to size so democracy can work.
People are taking action so democracy can regulate the size, scope and actions of corporations.
One of the most basic roles of society is to protect the people from harm. The massive size of many international corporations makes democratic control over them nearly impossible.
Corporate crime is widespread. The New York Times, ProPublica and others have revealed Wall Street giants like JPMorgan, Citigroup, Bank of America and Goldman Sachs have been charged with fraud many times only to get off by paying hundreds of millions. Professors at University of Virginia have documented hundreds of corporations which have been found guilty or pled guilty in federal courts.
Corporate abuse is even more widespread. For example, Corporate Accountability International named six to its Corporate Hall of Shame, including: Koch Industries for spending over $50 million to fund climate change denial; Monsanto for mass producing cancer causing chemicals; Chevron for dumping more than 18 billion gallons of toxic waste into the Ecuadorian Amazon; Exxon Mobil for being the worst polluter; Blackwater (now Xe) for killing unarmed Iraqi civilians and hiring paramilitaries; and Halliburton, the nation’s leading war profiteer.
Making corporations responsible to democracy of the people is challenging considering Wal-Mart, the world’s biggest corporation, does more business itself annually than all but two dozen of the two hundred plus countries in the world. Without dramatic changes, how can we expect people in small or even big countries to force corporations like Wal-Mart, Royal Dutch Shell, Exxon Mobil, BP, Toyota or Chevron to live by the same rules all the people have to?
Justice demands we make sure corporations do not harm people. Democracy must require that they operate for the common good.
In order to cut corporations down to size, the people must strip corporations of the special artificial legal protections they have created for themselves.
The story of how corporations took the full rights of legal persons in one of the great perverse tragedies in legal history. Corporations have worked the courts mercilessly since 1819 to take a wide variety of constitutional rights that were designed to cover only people.
For example, the Fourteenth Amendment (American Constitution) was passed in 1868 to make sure all citizens, particularly freed slaves and people of color, had full rights. There was no mention of protecting corporations. But corporations jumped on this opportunity resulting in a questionable Supreme Court decision that granted them legal personhood. At roughly the same time, the Supreme Court approved “separate but equal” racial segregation. Thus in thirty years, African Americans lost their legal personhood, while corporations acquired theirs.
Corporations now claim: 1st amendment free speech rights to advertise and influence elections: 4th amendment search and seizure rights to resist subpoenas and challenges to their criminal actions; 5th amendment rights to due process; 14th amendment rights to due process where corporations took the rights of former slaves and used them for corporate protection; plus rights under the Commerce and Contracts clauses of the constitution.
The most recent corporate judicial takeover of constitutional rights is the 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United versus the Federal Election Commission. The court ruled that corporations are protected by the First Amendment so they can use their money to influence elections.
Because of the bad Supreme Court decisions, it takes a constitutional amendment by the people to change the laws back. An amendment requires two-thirds of both houses of Congress to agree then three-quarters of the states must vote to ratify. This will take real work. But despite the growing size and unrestricted power of corporations, people are fighting back.
Dozens of groups are working to reverse Citizens United and restore limits on corporate election advocacy. In January 2011, groups delivered petitions signed by over 750,000 people calling on Congress to amend the Constitution and reverse the decision. More than 350 local events were held in late January 2012 to challenge the Citizens United decision.
Groups challenging this injustice include Code Pink, Common Cause, Free Speech for People, Moveon.org, Move to Amend, National Lawyers Guild, POCLAD, Public Citizen, People for American Way, The Center for Media and Democracy, and Women’s League for Peace and Freedom.
Many groups are asking for a broad constitutional amendment that makes it clear that corporations are not people and should not be given any constitutional rights. Representatives Ted Deutsch of Florida, Jim McGovern of Massachusetts and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont have sponsored bills in Congress to start the process for a constitutional amendment to make it clear that corporations are not people, are not entitled to the rights of people, and cannot contribute to political campaigns.
There are also many energetic actions at the state level. People for the American Way list organizational efforts in nearly all 50 states to end corporate influence in elections or amend the constitution.
Massive corporations now rule the earth. But they are recent arrivals which can and should be dispatched. It is time for people to again take control. The legal fiction of corporate personhood and the constitutional rights taken by corporations must cease. Join the efforts to cut them down to size and restore the right of the people to govern.

I am a convert since 1975, with the hope of Vatican II, to lead us to more of the Fullness of Truth, as The Church has, after each Council, since the Beginning of The Church. The Church is Holy founded by Jesus, but the people within are only occasionally Holy. Only God is all the time Holy, so don’t confuse man with being God.
Truth, such as our number one priority now to end inequality, that can be shown to be our greatest need, first within The Church, from where God’s Morality flows out into the world, that is now steeped in economic as well as political inequality.
This is the message from God’s Hand, The Holy Spirit has given me, a Woman, a Mother, but a nobody in the eyes of the world, to confront those who would increase, or maintain the status quo of our inequality, not only in The Chuch but in our world.
Any change for the better must start first within The Church, that is why God urges me to continue to work here.
You need to do what you can, where ever you are, after first confirming within your own conscience or God’s Holy Spirit. If you have never asked God’s Holy Spirit to come into your heart this is a good time, for it is the only way to find the fullness of Truth for you at this time in eternity, Truth that is God and beyond human knowledge, because of our being limited, while in this finite body, but within each human is a soul, given to you at birth, if not before, that is like your Spirit, but is not limited to your fleshly life, that you can communicate with, The God Within You, as well as Without.
The Peace of that God be with you.
“All humans are equal in dignity, but not all are called to the same service.”
That may be true, except the one who calls is God, not humans.
Humans within The Church do determine whether the call is genuine, but should not be discriminating on the basis of one’s race or sex, according to The Holy Spirit within myself and many others, and according to Vatican II, which says it is not the Will of God to discriminate because of race or sex… Articles 29+, Pastoral Constitution, Vatican II. 1965
Also the use of the words “equal dignity” in the above statement has to do with worthiness or women’s self respect. Without equal rights, can’t have much for ourselves or expect to get much real respect from males, which is part of the problem!
What is right is seen or valued primarily from the male side that tends to create the imbalance of injustices!
Inequality affects not only women, but also the poor of the world, who are suffering more than ever from the belief and practice of economic inequality, for it is just not about women’s rights but the rights or boundaries of the equal rights of all.
This is what has to be addressed at this time in history, before we all become slaves of the 1% as they too suffer from these effects, especially within their souls.
Found this today on a Catholic site and just wanted to share it.
It comes closer than most words, of expressing our individual Human Equality and our need to work together in ending the evils of inequality to take back our world from the negativeness that tries to control it, and bring us down with it.
Believe in your heart that something
wonderful is about to happen.

Reach within to find your own specialness.
Amaze yourself and rouse those
around you to the potential

Don’t be afraid to admit
you’re less than perfect;
this is the essence of our humanity.
Let those who love you help you;
Trust enough to be able to take.
Look with hope to the horizon of today,
for today is all we truly have.
Live this day well.
Let a little sun out as well as in.
Create your own rainbows.
Be open to all your possibilities,
and all miracles.
Always believe in miracles.

• Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment—or unlearning—of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts.
Love…is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth.
To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life.
• There is no fear where Love exists. –The Bible
© 2010 Marci Shimoff Excerpted from Love for No Reason www.TheLoveBook.com
For “God is Love, If we keep on Loving others, we will stay one in our hearts with God, and God will stay one with us” .I John 4:16
The inclusiveness of Jesus in his understanding of God, or being God in Human form, warns us against not seeing others as equals to ourselves, in spite of outward appearances, or each one’s uniqueness.
Jesus prayed to “ABBA”, not using the word “Father” as used in our English translations:
“I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word,
so that they may all be one, as You, “ABBA”, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us,
That the world may believe that You sent Me. And I have given them the glory You gave Me,
so that they may be one, as We are ONE, I in them and You in Me,
that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that You sent Me,
and that You loved them even as You loved Me.
“ABBA”, they are Your gift to Me.
I wish that where I am they also may be with Me, that they may see My glory that You gave Me,
because You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
Righteous “ABBA”, the world also does not know You,
but I know You, and they know that You sent Me. I made known to them Your Name
and I will make it known, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them and I in them”.
How can the sexes equally love each other or not think wrongly of themselves as being better than,
or less than the other sex, when we are thinking and speaking of God as being in the male form only?
The Church does us a real disservice by continuing to use sexist language.
Taking us backwards into the sins of Patriarchy and inequality of our past, instead of working to
end inequality in economic, as well as our sexist language and actions.
The everyday language Jesus spoke to his Disciples, his friends, was Aramaic, the word “ABBA” does not limit God to being just the Father, but includes the Mother, or “Our Heavenly Parent”. God having both female, as well as male qualities. Why does The Church keep using Patriarchal, Sexist language?
Futher evidence is that a Creator or more Powerful Being than our vast Universe, such an intelligent cannot be limited by any human sex or race.
We were “Created in The Image of, both male and female”*, does not mean God was Created in our Image.
*From the first Creation story found in Genesis 1:27.
We marvel at such a God, that cares for us little specks in the whole of the Universe that has such perfect Love, and indeed is even more Perfect, than anyone’s most loving Parents.
The worship of a God we cannot afford any longer to limit by sex or race, or worship anything that is less than Perfect Love, for to do so only continues to act to our own detriment in this world that we each have such an affect in, even the so called least of us, for we are then participating in the worship and growth of one who is less than the best!
Today is the last day of Christmas, in January 2012.
We celebrate specially on this day the Baptism of Jesus, by both water and The Holy Spirit, as Jesus said The Spirit of God came down as a Dove from Heaven, signaling God’s Grace upon his beginning Ministry.
Let us remember we too, those who consider themselves Disciples of Christ, are filled with The Holy Spirit at our Baptism and Confirmation, as we chose to follow God’s Will, rather than our own, more selfish and less “Knowing”, human Will, in this lifetime.
Todays reading found in Acts 10:34, makes it very clear in God there is no partiality, and that we are no longer to show partiality. For not being partial is the ending of inequality, allowing us to fulfil the final covenant God has written into our hearts, to “Love One Another”, “Even your enemies”.
St. Peter spoke to the crowd saying, “Truely, I realize that God does not show partiality”.
“In all nations he listen to everyone who fears God and does good.”
It doesn’t mean that we are all the same, for we are each unique, special in our own way, but it does mean, that one person’s life is as valuable as another.
We are not to devalue someone because we seem to have more than another. What one may lack materially, they may have a talent in some other area. There can be no cause to discriminate against someone, because of their sex anymore, than because of their race.
All the partiality we see in the history of the Old Testatment, was done in God’s Name to justify their own primative ways of perceiving God, as a Patriarch, like themselves.
Likewise many today fail to honor the Feminine Aspect of God, found in many areas of women’s intutition and wisdom, so badly needed in stopping the continual aggressions found in male only patrarchal control. Plus the need to balance the economic inequality in our world, which cannot be balanced until women’s equality is recognized, by the so called moral authorities.
Ever day that such inequality and partiality is allowed to remain, especially within The Church, from, as Catholics, we believe God’s morality should be the first to flow from, is another day of death for as many as 24,000 children, while millions more will continue to go to bed hungry each night.
Such gross economic inequality, that forces so many children, lucky enough to survive past 5 years of age, are then put to work instead of school, even in elementry grades, causing most of the children to remain illiterate, because the Parents average wage is less than $2.00 a day, and not a living wage for a family, is now a fact for over half our worlds population.
Those 1% in control of our worlds economics, control the price of wages and income, wherever they locate their Giant Corporate Companies, whose only morality is profit, so they can feel justified in paying the lowest possible wages. They will continue to, as long as the morality of The Church continues the inequality and discrimination of the female half of God’s Image, that is at least half the people in the world.
A world God Created for the people, not for only the few to profit from, now less than 1%, but equally for all, to be Blessed by.
Will we work for that Blessing or continue to be cursed by it?
We must find common ground and this is what I see in talking about our beliefs. Expressing how we feel, in areas of mutual interest, looking how to solve our many problems, so we all grow in Spirit and in Wisdom.
Found this in one of our Popes speeches. Hope we can all agree on this in this first week of Advent. Am going to try to do that more. Hope you will too.
“The Holy Father Pope Benedict XV, in a message he gave recently to the Holy Land Archeological Institute said:
“Today too the Church, if she wishes to speak to the world effectively, if she wishes to continue faithfully announcing the Gospel, … must bear witness to the credibility of the faith, even in those areas which seem most intransigent or indifferent. In other words, she must offer concrete prophetic witness through effective and transparent signs of coherence, faithfulness and passionate and unconditional love for Christ, not without authentic charity and love for others. Today as yesterday, the blood of the martyrs and their eloquent witness touches the hearts of men and women, making them fruitful, … open to accepting the life of Christ and to bringing resurrection and hope to the surrounding world”.”
Especially important it seems is this last sentence of our need to bring resurrection and hope to our world, through allowing The Divine Christ within us help share with others the hope of a better world.
May the Peace of Christ Be with us.
We in America celebrated a Day of Thanksgiving. We are starting a day of Advent. Waiting, for enough of us, maybe all of us, (could take another 500 or more years that seems from what has been happening in my world) for The Lord of All To Come.
Judgement has been ordained by Prophecy from a vision of St. John and Daniel, and confirmed in my heart by the whisperers in my heart, of The Holy Spirit. Some destined to be lost? No matter what we do? but we are commanded to do it, “go out into all the world” starting in your own family, and extending outward to try to reach the most stubborn and cold of hearts into being open enough to enter, with us all 99% +1%, into this next four weeks of Advent.
The Purple candle lit today, the 1st of the next 4 Sundays, represent in our homes and/or hearts, in places of worship, at least one day a week, the coming of our Lord again,
Maybe just as a baby, in some hearts, up to the full body and Christ of Our Lord in Eucharist, in some, and all in-between.
It has been given to me that this can and for most, will be the Merriest Christmas yet, because of this special season of Advent. It is my prayer it is to you who read this, God has brought you here or you’ve been forced to read it, but there are few accidents. We seek Unity in God and Christ, and are led By God’s Holy Spirit.
Either way we give Thanksgiving and Gratitude, if for nothing else than this breath, and the coming one, not being assured of any more for us, as individuals .
Praise God, Now and Forever, for what we and you do have!
Your friend in Christ,
Being a Catholic for about 40 years, a convert in my 30’s, by God’s will, as had been raised a Christian since my Mother’s womb.
Have come to love Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and look at her as a great Mother role model, both males and females would like to have had, and can have now.
Also have a close relationship with the Feminine aspect of God. Many lay Catholics only know Mary as “The Queen of Heaven”, she is called within The Church.
Many have never known, or do not recognize, the feminine God Head, and are only told about the male aspects of God. Part of the reason we have so much inequality in our world.
God’s Will sent me to Rome for 3 months, to try and correct this, to Witness, Fast and Pray for an end to inequality, especially within The Church from where God’s morality should be flowing from.
Will not be able to return till Spring again, as non-Italian citizens are only allowed to be in Italy legally for 3 months, unless they are going to school or have a paying job there. 3 months is the most I feel is possible for me to do anyway, even though I was not totally fasting, steal eating one meal a day, in solidarity with the 50% of the people in our world who are in the process of starvation with one or less meals a day. Their average salary is $2.00 value in our money, or less, for a days work.
Causing 7 out of 10 of all children now, to neither be able to learn to read or write, for instead of school they must start earning their own food by 6-7 years old and many younger. Forging in city dumps, in workshops, as maids, sex objects, etc. you name it, you can get a child to do it for cheap.
They grow up, if they grow up, with parents many who were put in the same situation.
So their situation is dire, and that inequality is to me, even more important than the equal rights of women, but they go hand in hand.
Inequality God has shown me in so many ways is our greatest evil, the belief and acting or supporting it, and is seemingly our number one priority now, to see that everyone has at least two meals a day.
( Just try living on one meal a day, for even three months and you’ll understand what I mean).
Everyone deserves a bed to sleep in, basic medical care, and a chance to go to school to as far as their talents and abilities will take them. Can you imagine the decrease in the crime rate?
This is only possible with an end to the belief in inequality within The Church and those who control our world.
It seems unlikely to me to happen till there are enough people who can see it and demand it by refusing to vote for leaders who won’t give us equal fairness, and where you can’t vote, refuse to financially support such systems that perpetuate inequality.
People in this country and Europe, who could more easily do something about it, have and still are keep pretty much ignorant of such inequality, or it is downplayed, and seen as hopeless. The 1% who own the deciding shares on most of our media outlets, make sure the news is slanted or …… So you hear little about it.
The 1% who control such wages want to force most of us to not make much more than that $2.00 a day, after they starve off a few more billion, and put those left in that same position.
God is not going to allow it. Prophecy in Rev. tells us no more than a third will be destroyed in any such plot.
We are at that point in numbers, and that is why the 99% movement, has started on its own, and is happening all over the world, in most cities of any size.
I have been working with a Peace Vigil for over 10 years and before Iraq even started, as it was obvious we were going to go there.
Our reception from the public driving by, is luke warm even now, but over the years has grown.
A few people respond with Peace signs as they drive by, some even join us, or honk. Most tty not to even look.
But from the first day of the 99% demonstration in our very conservative town, that is less than a million, but more than 100,000 the response has been overwhelming.
Mostly originally people here migrated from the South, who came looking for decent paying jobs in the dangerous oilfields, but there are many big farmers and farm workers too.
From the first morning of the OCCUPY 99% group, from 10am-10pm at our Federal Building Liberty Bell, I could hardly believe the honking and Peace signs and Yeah, Right On, responses we received, for only about 20 of us!
Last night two weeks later, (I was on vacation for 10 days), it has grown to 105 counted,while I was there.
People come and go as they can. They have also shortened the hours from 4-8pm, on every day but Sunday, when there is no grouping.
Find a OCCUPY Group you can participate in, in any way you have a talent. Look for progressive leaders and encourage them to run for local offices and encourage them.
Be a Brother or Sister in Christ especially to them, as well as to all who need your help.
“Taking 300 religious leaders with him on pilgrimage to Assisi, Pope Benedict XVI said people who are suspicious of religion cannot be blamed for questioning GOD’s existence when they see believers use religion to justify violence.”
(Catholic News Service)
In the same regard, the 1%, those of the 1% who are not religious leaders, plus others suspicious of religion, cannot be blamed for questioning GOD’s existence when they see believers use their religion to justify inequality for the female half of God’s Image!
Why? Because those seeking a Perfect God of Love, worthy of worship, know a God of Perfect Holy Love cannot be a God of partiality or a God of might, over equal rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
It is a God complex! For we have a tendency to create God in our own, or some created Image, instead of the other way around, for God is The Spirit of Love that existed before all created life, and lives in all that can still love.
“Be proud of your role in helping to reach this day, whatever the outcome. Take this moment to congratulate yourself for fighting the good fight, and for keeping faith in the ideals of democracy.”
Democracy is better than a Dictatorship, that’s the people’s common moral sense. Everybody wants it except those1% who want to keep it as is, corrupted, conflicted, with dirty cups, that cannot be cleaned by human hands, they know the ropes and repent just enough to save their skin, but they risk or have already given away what is the more valuable.
Can you really imagine Jesus today, saying, “oh yes, you got to have a Head, that knows more than you, not only as a sign of unity, for your just the stunned growth of my chosen male ones. And you’d don’t know enough to come to a good conscensus, now do you? Those great old 1%’er’s, Now look how they’re done such a good job!!!
NO, use your head, I said to follow the one who showed The Holy Spirit by their actions as well as words.
What do you think, those of you who allow The Cosmic Consciousness of God, The Holy Spirit to lead, and
not man, but God’s Will on this little earth I tell you will be for sure “soon”. If I can just find some non-violent smart hands. Like the first great Christians were who spread out across the lands.”
“Occupy Wall Street (OWS) was generally predicted to be just another short-term protest. But it took flight in a way no one had anticipated, and has considerably altered the national conversation. For the first time in decades, corporations – as well as the entire plutocratic/government alliance – are on the defensive.
Make no mistake about it, although the goals of the OWS movement remain intentionally undefined, its impact on the status-quo punditry of the mass media has been profound. Suddenly, economic justice, the failed financial system and the entitlements of wealth are being questioned.
Be proud of your role in helping to reach this day, whatever the outcome. Take this moment to congratulate yourself for fighting the good fight, and for keeping faith in the ideals of democracy.
Such historical breakthroughs can come only after years of bringing truth to light and eroding away the lies. For more than ten years, Truthout (and BuzzFlash at Truthout) have been partners with you in laying the groundwork for this moment.”
Well I found them on the net a couple years ago, and they do condense what is happening in a different view than mainstream media. Support them if you can and need to read all the news, not just the 1%’er’s?
May The Peace of Christ, my brothers or Sisters, be always with you,
“The demons cunningly withdraw for a time in the hope that we will cease
to guard our heart, thinking we have now attained peace; then they suddenly
attack our unhappy soul and seize it like a sparrow. Gaining possession of it,
they drag it down mercilessly into all kids of sin, worse than those which we
have already committed and for which we have asked forgiveness.
Let us stand, therefore, with fear of God, and keep guard over our heart, practicing the
virtues which check the wickedness of our enemies.”
Isaiah the Solitary, On Guarding the Intellect
Philokalia, Volume 1″
The dangers of not daily, praying the greatest of virtues for a Godly life,
such as hope, faith, charity, humility, patience, perseverance,
prudence, fortitude, obedience, purity or chastity.
Whenever any of us be in positions of authority, at work, or at home,
we soon find ourselves playing partiality to, our by nature, limited point of view and not
considering others equally, to reach the most Godly view.
Praise God we are not gods, while here.
For humans have such a tendency to Lord it over others.
Our hope is in going towards a more democratic world, where the whole is considered more by consensus,
and not by a faulty by nature hierarchy.
This was as it was, the first 300 years, in the early Church, before the power of the Empire Rome
condensed all authority into a Roman male only, run church.
We have suffered from inequality and partiality as Christians, especially the female half of God’s Image, and so also influenced our world, by our example, ever since!
Romans 2:11 “There is no partiality with God” or “one is not different from the other before God.”
My own Paraphrase from I John 3:2 Beloved, we are God’s children, and what we shall be has not yet been shown. But we can know we shall be like whoever we claim as Lord, when we see the fullness of Truth, and God as God is.
We must be so very careful with authority, in ourselves when we act with sole authority, or in others who hold authority over us. They can so easily be wrong, as they can be right, even those with “superior” reasons or “logic” which can be little to nothing, when you don’t have all the X factors, that humans can not have while in our limited human forms of perceptions.
Jesus said they are too often concerned with the outside and not the deeper layers inside.
for power over others, has this terrible propensity to corrupt, and absolute power is known to almost always absolutely corrupt.
Especially be careful when we are always being looked up to, and ourselves looking down on others.
But when that happens too much we are already in negative’s clutches and rarely can see the whole of Holy Spirit Truth.
Let us pray for ourselves and others, in positions of authority.
Work towards as much democracy as possible, for all of our souls sake,
to break the bonds of satan’s greedy clutches, we fall into, without all the Godly virtues.
Praying you too have such a friend, you know is forever, if not
that you will soon find such a treasure!
You brighten my day
Help me choose the right way
You are my friend
You lend me your hand
Help me understand
You are my friend
And when my skies
Are cloudy and grey
just what to say
‘Cause we’re friends
And we’re singing along
yes we’re friends, friends
and we’ll stay together
I know that’s how we belong
You’re there in good times and bad
When I’m happy or sad
You are my friend
I depend upon you
And I’ll be there for you too
You are my friend
And when the years
someday make us part
within my heart
‘Cause we’re friends, friends forever
And we’re signing along
Yes we’re friends, friends
And we’ll stay together
I know that’s how we belong
There are no words I can say
To you for thanks I should pay
For being my FRIEND

“We cannot achieve democracy and lasting peace in the world unless women achieve the same opportunities as men to influence developments at all levels of society.”
——— Thorbjorn Jagland, Nobel Committee chairman, in awarding this year’s Peace Prize to three women – Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Liberian Leymah Gbowee and Tawakul Karman of Yemen; for their “nonviolent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.”
This is why, I was shown God’s Hand at five years old then led over the years to see why the belief in the equality of persons is so important.
The female nature of God brings something very important and needed right now in our history, to the very core of survival of our life on earth, in our beliefs, even our spiritual development depends upon it, at all levels of society.
Dear Friend In Christ,
It doesn’t take an expert to realize you can be conditioned to think wrong is right, or right is wrong, in most anything, look at how 90% of people in any culture believe what they were taught about “their” understanding of God, or the numerous religions, held by different countries of the world or areas.
Our traditions are Patriarchal, whether you want to see it or not, made by males, enforced by males, written only by males, and right now the only people, males or females who think males are gods, instead of God is God are the ones who can’t “see” that.
God is The Spirit of Love, that equally can be in either male or female.
Yes, Jesus came to earth incarnated into a male body, for at that time impossible to incarnate otherwise to be able to reach and preach in public, for women were so much in slavery at the time, they were not allowed to talk to a male outside their house, or in it for that matter, without permission, on pain of death. Christianity offered them equality, and one reason it spread so fast, especially among the women, slaves, and the disenfranchised of the world at that time, to the point where they were more than willing to die for their faith, knowing they were going to a better place, to a God who loved them equally, even promised the last would be first.
The women at that time in Israel, where Jesus chose to come, could not go into the synagogues to preach, had to stay in the outer courts of the Temple, with the slaves and Foreigners. Women only got the right not to be a man’s piece of property here in America, in 1921. When we got the right to vote, and still some women in the world do not have that right.
But as Christ, Jesus was not a mere human, Jesus was God in normal human flesh or appearance, but as God, Christ is neither male or female, Greek or Jew, but one with God who is LOVE, Perfect Love, A Spirit, The Spirit of LOVE. Who created us both, female, as well as male, in the Image of God, according to the 1st and 3rd known Creation story in the Book of Beginnings, (=Genesis) written AT least several thousand years after its happening, and the stories passed down by campfires, over the centuries.
First written down on scrolls by the scribes finally during 1000-500 BC.
The Priestly or official version, is the first story that starts with the 1st. chapter and stops, with a ~ sign, in any good version of Genesis, at chapter 2:3. The third version starts at 5:1 and starts by repeating that God created both male and female in The Image of God.
The devil loves people to be in slavery, to be divided, and to be at war to destroy each other, to treat each other as unequal as possible.
You are either going to help him or you choose to help God. Your free will choice, whether you are conscious of it or not, thats why you will be judged whether you were culpable and knew this or not.
Now you know the rest of that story!
Your sister in Christ,
