Purifying Mind Body & Spirit to Help

download (10)“One of the things I learnt when I was negotiating was that until I changed myself I could not change others”—Nelson Mandela

That is a true and powerful statement, and I say that because it has taken me many years to get to the point of seeing myself as a “good work” started. That good work has only been made a reality because of my changed mind. I changed my mind about myself, and have tried to live down what other people think about me and develop some kind of moral compass and believe in (not only) what I aspire to help with, but also what I believe will help. In essence, I can only help with what I am allowing (or have allowed) my self to get help with.

If I have not mentioned that I am in counseling, and understand that some people might believe that sharing such personal information is telling ones business. However, I do not see it like that, but do see if I cannot get help then I cannot help anyone, then it is a weakness on my part.

For one thing, I have to ask myself if I aspire to help women then how can I do that if I cannot go and bear all to become free to help? I cannot say that I will help women in whatever manner if I am still angry, or unforgiving, or bogged down with grief. So then, I seek to help myself, thereby, changing myself to become a woman who can help. Therefore, if I aspire to help in any area, such as women need that “to Innovate, Inform, Influence, Inspire” (The Dailey Grind, 2016) then I must change myself. Additionally, some situations we live out change us, some challenge us; however, the most change comes when we do introspection to look deeply into what we need to work [out] within us to save ourselves first.

Concerning our work, and the changes we seek to make, and or, those we work with—or participants. I must say that I cannot hear a team, work with a group if I have issues to address and that are unmet. I believe this is why there are colleagues who do not work well together in collaboration, or are not well matched in the negotiation stage. Consequently, many people might come together for a cause but coming together requires as Spiro (2011) mentions, ‘that leaders be ready’, and goes back to me and counseling to ‘prepare’ myself for the work.

Probably the change I seek is more deeper rooted than many because (like those I help) I speak from a place I have lived already—a place from the heart of the change. Hence, perhaps it would be well to gather other ideas and opinions during the planning. For example, assessing the readiness of the individuals involved” as mentioned Spiro (2011) who asked if people were on the same page concerning the change, or rather, do people have prior experience with functionally illiterate clients? Have they been in the past functionally illiterate? “Do participants speak the same language when it comes to the strategy? Not only the same words, but the same meaning? (26). So what does my team bring with them to the planning of this action?

Are shared values supported? In essence, even those learners, those affected –are all speaking the same language? Ultimately, one should ask how else are we going to help alleviate and rescue the people who are suffering whether in the class or in life outside of the classroom in our every day lives.

Your Sunday Bread: The Fruit of Righteousness

FB_IMG_1451512326301We don’t like to think of ourselves as criminals. That’s because we look at the act instead of the thinking. So then the tendency to not see the spiritual in the transgression of the law and sin is missing, and is why people can transgress (break) Yahuah’s command without batting an eye. It is because we do not perceive, or cannot perceive that the law is a spiritual one.

First, Yahuah is Spirit, and those who give respect to, look at, turn to look at, cast their gaze on Him must follow the commands in spirit and in truth.

Secondly, it takes a spiritual mind to not do the things found in the law, that is, do not bring His name to naught, do not make graven images, do not bear false witness and do not covet and to remember the Shabbat to keep it set apart.

In other words, to not be found guilty of whats in that law then one must know and believe that (1) a spiritual hand wrote it, (2) transgression of the law is spiritual against Yahuah, then ones spiritual self and the other person [s] spirit they transgress the law against, (3) a spiritual mind perceives it, (4) a spiritual mind follows it, and (5) spiritual mind breaks or keeps it.

For example, a person is committing the act of adultery transgresses Yahuah’s command first in his mind (his spirit), because of this he transgresses further by his acts (his fruit), then he transgresses the command further by participation to transgress the law with another. Does that make sense. Then see that the transgression is so against Yahuah who is Spirit, your spirit and the other peoples spirit man. There is nothing that is not attached in a spirit whether of Yahuah or of the enemy.

Therefore, one is either walking in spirit and in truth (Law Keeper) or walking in spiritual wickedness (Law Breaker). We can tell which by their acts when it shows in their fruit.

Today: We should ask ourselves does my fruit show righteousness of truth?

For your hearing:

John 4

Your Sunday Bread: There’s a Stranger in the House!

374Ladies,

There’s a stranger in the house!

We cannot get anymore righteous than what the bible says which denotes that our thinking must change, and the way that it does is spiritually; otherwise, we would have been into this truth long ago. Yahuah is truth, his word never changes even when we thought we were living the right way.

This poses a question then–what to do with the people left behind? Suddenly since the light has shone on us then we can see clearly that the light is shining and does shine on every single person place and thing.

Light has come—this message is gonna tear you up, or fix you up and its gonna be a choice to stay or go.

“But know this, that in the last days hard times shall come. For men shall be lovers of [them] self, lovers of silver, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, thankless, wrongdoers, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self control, fierce, haters of good, betrayers, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim, having a form of reverence but denying its power. And from these turn away. For among them are those who creep in into the household and captivate silly women loaded down with sins [unconfessed], led away by various lusts always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of truth.” (2 Timothy 3:1-7).

First let me say that these women are not outside the church only they are in it. Yes, this passage is speaking of the so called spirtual woman, and I add Christian woman whose eyes have not been opened. We are a silly lot, before truth comes –always learning but never seeing truth of what we learn. I have been silly, and if my eyes had not opened I could not say this. Silly women, are the most gullible women and the bible toting men know it.

Just men in general understand silly women, but bible toting women see ourselves as spiritual, that is we dress the part, make up the part, preach the part and and have not the spirit of truth to distinguish ourselves.

Ok we fell for a charmer–god talking man who knows nothing of truth, but to look good, preach good, and beyond that just another man.

Tote that bible baby you look good to me when I am ASLEEP. WAKE UP LADIES!

We fall for the good job, hell some of us don’t expect much but a good lay down and all is well. I use to be that woman until —truth came and now I don’t care what a man has got if the most important is missing…where is Yahuah and where is truth?

If Yah is missing we get the above description lovers of self, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim. Love talk but love is not genuine.

I don’t know about you but that man is not worth it. You will not get this message until you wake up, or if you are woke take caution

Your Sunday Bread: Altar Prayer or Idol Prayer?

1376646_881719698507328_719261010624059108_nIf we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins. (Hebrews 10:26).

So here are indications that the place you worship is into idol worship.

2Co 3:14  But their minds were hardened, for to this day, when the old covenant is being read, that same veil remains, not lifted, because in Messiah it is taken away.

Many people today like to watch shows that solve crimes, and some of the more popular show like CSI, The Closer, The First 48 [reality] show us some things that can occur in the way of gathering evidence and investigation, interviewing witnesses and the like.

For example, let us say that a crime is committed. The crime is idol worship and that the accused are unaware that idol worship still is apart of life today. In fact, many people who were guilty woke up to this heinous crime and as community service has it, now spend time daily getting the word out that the crime committed, that is, idolatry if they do not repent is punishable by death.

However, the people are not agreeable, and in fact, say all they do is go to church. However, you have evidence to the contrary that not only do these people go to church, but they pray at the alter of the idol, sacrifice their money to the idol and worse yet teach their children to do the same. Not only that, there is a designated meeting held each week, and subsequent days for the people to practice their dance, to meet with other people who worship the idol too, and together they all help build up the sacrifice on the designated day; including and not limited to ritualistic holidays.

In essence, there is more than enough evidence to try them to find them guilty as charged…adultery, graven images, bearing false witness [coming as angels of light], murdering the poor in spirit (Matthew 5) or rather people oblivious to their plight. Book sales, DVDs, CDs, all in the name of the idol.

Today: Ask, why is there a need for an alter of prayer when the sacrifice was taken away. The veil is no longer there and people can go to the father without the need of a priest, representative?

For your hearing:

Revelations 21:7-8, ““The one who overcomes shall inherit all this, and I shall be his Elohim and he shall be My son. “But as for the cowardly, and untrustworthy, and abominable, and murderers, and those who whore, and drug sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the false, their part is in the lake which burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.”

Your Sunday Bread: Sexless Love

11392937_1000276093318354_7939337952893540428_nHaving sex is not love. Generally men may think this way, and women think giving sex is love. However, one cannot place a measurement there to say that sex is love, and one should ask when did the Most High say that sex is love?

In this, one should think that seeking sex is seeking love in the wrong place. People love sex, but sex does not seek love that lasts. Hence, one should see that though sex is good it is not love, because when we love a person we may give sex freely; however, in that same note withhold it when we do not love any longer.

Sex is not love then, because love does not fail us when sex is no more, and love is withstanding when sex is not available

. Love suffers, and sex finds another option. Therefore, sex fails when love does not. It is the case, that without love we have nothing but sex which produces babies to love and to recreate love in itself, but since love is not sex–loveless sex can walk away.

Ladies and Gentlemen love is sexless which says that ultimately one must find the realm of making love not sex.

Your Sunday Bread: Your Deliverance Has a New Look

103805176_640The Way is Hard Pressed [leading to life], and, not many there are that find it (Matthew 7:14).

Deliverance has a new look.

Let’s talk today about how difficult it might be for us to keep our bearing. Scripture speaks of the Way in terms of struggle and pain during the walk. Hence, there is misconception brought about by those who deliver these messages of prosperities which has deceived us to the point that we do not look any place to find Yah, except in our wallets.

Then we should ask then what if our wallets are empty? Or what if our houses are substandard? What if we don’t own a car, or the car is in disrepair? What then are we to do with ourselves if the Way is prosperity which everyone seeks, then, where does that leave many of us who love the Most High?

Think again and consider what that means.

If people continue to take in the lie, then we begin to see this is the very reason why trust has been lost. Many people have lost trust in the Most High,  because no matter how they try there is still trouble, hopelessness, and struggle. Hence, what we need to do is look elsewhere, because the Way is hard pressed and not easy as in prosperity teaches.

See:

“Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide – and the way is broad – that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it. “Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed [or the way is afflicted] which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).

Today: Press through the lies and hypocrisy of erroneous teaching and know that your answer is in the search of Truth in the Most High who says He will be found when we search with our whole [entire] heart. What that means is that He is not in our wallets as is the thing in the broad road to destruction.

Your Sunday Bread: Cult Prostitutes versus Whorish Women What’s the Difference?

1Co 7:2  But because of whoring, let each one have his own wife, anave her own husband. 

Seems that some of us didn’t hear this word in its entirety. So here goes truth.

Because of whoring. Many of us consider a whore, or rather, one who whores to be someone out there looking around and having sex with any ol fella. However, from this text a whore can be so even if she might be married. Of course, in marriage the added pang of adultery rings true as well, but for this cause we want to know whose a whore and what makes a whore, because chances are one is a whore by what she thinks rather than the clothing she puts on.

Let’s face it. Women who are scantily dress are considered such though she may not be that way. It is the case, that society brings this type thinking on a woman because of styles in dress. So it is fair to say if boobs are out, shorts showing cheeks a woman may be more likely to be labeled a whore than the one who is covered. However, there are probably more whores covered than meet the eye.

Its all in what we think, because someone with not much clothes may not give him the time of day while the one presenting herself as chaste is down right freaky in her mind.

What is a whore?

Similar terms apply (a) a cult prostitute, (b) a harlot: To act or be, and  (c) unfaithfulness

So we see there are many terms to fit and cover a great many women. So lets narrow the search shall we?

Here we focus on a cult prostitute and know that these are women known to frequent so called congregations. Back in biblical times these women would go and visit the temple, hang around it and make themselves available to men.

Do you think that changed? See all the women flocking the churches after the preachers/pastors and ask are they covered? Are they dressed?

Cult Prostitutes, but the changed words has us believing the women because of their dress are these. Basically, there are some decent women just misguided, but who have they to model themselves after?

In essence, then, Its what you can’t see that hurts.
