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?

Civil Rights: The Fight to be Equal with God

Selma_to_Montgomery_MarchesTo be discriminated against in America is so common that those who live in the wake of it come to expect it in some form or another daily if they are awakened to see it. In fact, to be black in America is rough, difficult to be so; however, the problem is not the people who are progenitors of racism and discrimination it is the people who believe themselves equal to the whites perception of themselves. This is not to say that in any way should so called blacks be continually mistreated, or to place themselves in harms way; however, to come to a realistic view and see that if white people see themselves as God in their own eyes, and they rule the country—then also in their eyes every single person that comes to America willingly or not is considered to be, or should become a servant. Consequently,  there is a problem with thinking that everyone should be a servant, and the problem with that thought is those who feel that way have a tendency to mistreat people. Another view is that people who are descendants of slave owners typically have a mindset that America, the nation is theirs because they built it, and that if their money paid for the country to become great; then  regardless of how they came about that money while committing immoral acts against mankind in their minds they are God, that is, God has the money, God owns the land, God writes the policy, God is America’s Dream, and because of this thinking of themselves as God by the white people others should just look over the fact that GOD is racist. In this article there is discussion concerning current policy in regards to civil rights initiatives so called blacks pursuit to become like God.

The Fight to be like God

Of course, today, with President Obama’s position as head of the country some people  may consider that there is not discrimination any longer, or that the country has had a breakthrough since he took office, however, the election of a mixed race only adds fuel to the fact that Obama is half black and half God to the whites, or rather, a pawn to be used by those who to many in their own minds are GOD. In explanation, the CEO of the National Policy Institute, Sam Dickson (2014) spoke concerning the policy set  during the writing of the Declaration of Independence for the country’s break with their motherland Britain, In his video, “America: The God that Failed”, he said that the section of the declaration which speaks about ‘inalienable rights’ was taken off the paper of Britain’s document and placed into the American one. In that he stated that “a man without a country” cannot possibly have the type dedication to the cause of those who call America their home and built it (Dickson, 2014). Speaking frankly,  Dickson is saying that no one can be equal with God–one nation under God rule. The Civil Rights Act of 1964, was created from legislature in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution that mentions rhetoric such as ‘alienable rights given by God—life , liberty and pursuit of freedom’, and ,’ all men are created equal’; however, at the time of the signing did not include blacks. Further, a realistic view of this is that no one can be what God says he is not—equal or otherwise, and it is a fair statement to say that words written by God becomes law. Consequently, here one should be reminded that the three-fifth human clause has yet to be amended. It is the case that great strides have been made as  result of rallies of civil disobedience to God, and notably the subservient blacks did not ask for much.

Initiatives in the Fight to be like God

Dye (2010) wrote that there are differences of opinion concerning racism in the country where whites think not much of it and do not think it a problem, and blacks see it differently stating there is a serious problem with racism (Dye, 2010).  Although, civil rights issues most popular are covered in the legislation there are others that have yet to be such as police brutality which is really brutality by God in uniform and the right to not be murdered in the streets, unarmed like dogs is an ongoing pursuit. Hence, the initiatives set pertaining to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is paled in comparison to these unsolved. More specifically, civil pursuits of equality  to be like God have been broad and include many milestones in the rights of people of color in all areas of living—mainly protection against discrimination for:  (a) publics places, but not the right to assemble peaceably, but also includes equal access to schools and or equal access to, restaurants, restrooms, (b) outlaw of Jim Crowe laws which prevented access to voting, (c) employment for black people and equal pay standards, and (d) housing which include mortgage lending discrimination and the tendency for landlords to be slum lords. Presently, however, there have been several amendments to the act which now include protection to women in the work place and working while pregnant, right to choice of healthcare, gay or sodomite marriage rights, right to not be bullied, and several court related rights that are written also but are still unequal in quality and perception in the pursuit to be God’s equal. For example, although there is legislation to state that negroes can work along side God instead of being relegated to back doors, cleaning God’s toilet or watching God’s children black women can now work alongside white women and may be as  qualified even more so in some cases or equally as qualified but still make less than their non black colleagues. Additionally, black women and men are lowest paid who work along side their white colleagues, and who all are degreed status; however, here is where the inequality lies, that is, blacks chosen last over whites and even if chosen are paid considerably less than whites and this occurrence can happen in the hiring process. In explanation consider the following scenario:

A local auto parts company is hiring for a management position. After the interviews, however, the Human Resources Department has narrowed the search for a manager down to two candidates who both hold the degreed status required for the position, and they both have the required amount of management experience needed– their names are Christopher Columbus, and Michael Spears. Hence, unable to decide between the two the hiring manager calls both in for a second interview. In the interviews; however, no salary is ever discussed, but  in a meeting between the hiring manager and her boss is where the salary for the position was initially decided that the position would pay $32,000 per year. Additionally, after the interviews the team decides that they will not hire Christopher Columbus and call Michael in for a third and final interview where they will offer his package at that time. Subsequently, at the interview they tell Michael that the position pays $10.00 an hour which is $19,200 per year instead of the $32,000 a year that the hiring managers had previously planned to offer. Hence, this begs the question and asks why? It is the case, that not only is Michael an African American but the team sees that as a chance to save money, and decided that he has the skills needed to fit the job description; however, their decision to not pay him equally as unto the white candidate because of his race is discrimination.

The Right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness equal to God

How unfortunate, that anyone living in a country as great as America would be subjugated to such biases and discrimination, and one could say that the white man was discriminated against as well, however, the opportunity will await the white over black in greater measure. Moreover,  this type discrimination is difficult to prove and applicants should obtain the ability to seek out information regarding pay in a field or for positions before applying. Generally, however, in the interview applicants are discouraged from raising questions about pay before the subject is brought up. Hence, this occurrence removes any chance of the applicant being warned concerning the agenda against them. In his address concerning women and equal pay discrimination, President Obama stated that unequal pay is not just a woman’s issue but a family issue and the aforementioned scenario addresses that more so, because men are still the heads of the household in many cases, and although in so called black families there are women who are forced into the role of head of the house there is a need for men to be paid as much as white men in the workplace so they too can take care of their families.

President Obama wrote concerning the  Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act:

Because while this bill bears her name, Lilly knows this story isn’t just about her. It’s the story of women across this country still earning just 78 cents for every dollar men earn – women of color even less – which means that today, in the year 2009, countless women are still losing thousands of dollars in salary, income and retirement savings over the course of a lifetime. But equal pay is by no means just a women’s issue – it’s a family issue. It’s about parents who find themselves with less money for tuition or child care; couples who wind up with less to retire on; households where, when one breadwinner is paid less than she deserves, that’s the difference between affording the mortgage – or not; between keeping the heat on, or paying the doctor’s bills – or not. And in this economy, when so many folks are already working harder for less and struggling to get by, the last thing they can afford is losing part of each month’s paycheck to simple discrimination. So in signing this bill today, I intend to send a clear message: That making our economy work means making sure it works for everyone. That there are no second class citizens in our workplaces, and that it’s not just unfair and illegal – but bad for business – to pay someone less because of their gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion or disability. And that justice isn’t about some abstract legal theory, or footnote in a casebook – it’s about how our laws affect the daily realities of people’s lives: their ability to make a living and care for their families and achieve their goals (Obama, 2015).

Notably, the pursuit in the fight to be equal to God is ongoing for both genders of the black race, and future policies should reflect change in the areas of: (a) three fifth human amendment, (b) raising the minimum raise, (c) equal fair pay for black men and women, according to their educational level, and more thought and effort placed on anti-bullying legislation to include police brutality.

In the strides to become equal to God, blacks have not gained strides equal to whites in the fifty plus years of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 execution. Moreover, in the shadow of the attitude of  whites in America blacks made a huge mistake in the supposed fight of equality, that is, that God cannot accept the people who they crossed the Atlantic to steal them  from their families, a people of culture, of a continent of African people who were sold into slavery. In addition, so called blacks would be wise to remember that in the eyes of America the slaves cannot be equal to their master whether in education, the workplace, health or welfare, that the servant is not equal to their God, and pursuit to find a place equal is for the white man a dream but for the black man in America who covet such a place has become a nightmare. That a said the pursuit continues.

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: Yah Give Me Strength so I can Pray?

wisdom-large-32 Chronicles 1:10  “Now give me wisdom and knowledge, so that I go out and come in before this people. For who is able to rightly rule this great people of Yours?” 

Many people, including myself when we hear someone speak of wisdom may think of this as being lessons learned. Or some of us see having grey hair as wisdom. Right? Every single thing we go through can be a lesson, though seemingly, some of us are lacking in the wisdom department of life.

I can attest, there are many hard knocks of life that have gained me much wisdom, or so I perceived, because frankly I thought I could see until I found out I was blind as a bat.

Let me explain, because that verse is not speaking of ‘street wise’.

Wisdom is more than the grey hair on our heads, and most certainly more than what we learned in the street. If there are those of us who have made it out of that safe and sound, still in one piece I commend you. Congratulations for dodging the bullet, because most certainly we have placed ourselves in some dangerous circumstances. Of course, not all people have been there and done that, so for you I say better safe than sorry doesn’t do much for those who are living on the dangerous side of the fence, however, there is a lesson for everyone to learn from someone else. So congrats to you too even if you are a scardey cat!

So wisdom is more than an experience gained, it is a skill gained from the experience. We should face the fact that not all experiences have gained us skill. Hence, we are still doing those things even though we know some of that is not good for us.

In fact there are a few things that wisdom is such as:

Skill. This type skill solves problems. Now I can say going to school teaches us many skills for on the job, however, this type wisdom can seek answers to probems where no man can think of. It is the case, this skill is from above. Ever been given direction from the Most High beforehand?

  1. Dexterity. The ability to think and act quickly in a situation, and or, cleverly. We use this in sports, or other activity. Sports fans should be able to relate to the skill it takes for that runner with the football to manuever past the opposition on the field.
  2.  Comprehension. Understanding, or rather, the act of grasping with the intellect, and knowledge gained.

Ok we gain some knowledge of the streets and know [in some instances what not to do]; however, even when we know what not to do we still do it because we have become skilled at it. Hence, wisdom can be applied to the bad or immoral behavior too. Call that stupidity. However, Wisdom for this occasion, and the type wisdom Solomon asked was that ‘His eyes be opened’ to see. This would entail that man has not this type wisdom, and never has asked because scripture says that Yahuah gave it to Solomon and there has never been a man before him or after with such. So then men are too smart, but without this type wisdom– street wise.

Today: I want to be taught by Yahuah. Don’t you? To do the right thing.

Your Sunday Bread: Steadfast & Unmovable

saiKeep your eye on the prize. Know that the race is not given to the swift, nor is it given to the strong but to those who endure [hold on, hang in there, who do not give up and do not faint]. until the end.
“I again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the mighty, nor even bread to the wise, nor even riches to men of understanding, nor even favour to men of knowledge – for time and chance meets with them all”. (Ecclesiastes 9:11).
So what that says today is that all have the same start, but unfortunately not all hang in there.
Today: Are you the one? Today are you the one who will hold on to the finish. It is well today, believe it.
For your hearing:
(1 Corinthians 15:58) Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Master, knowing that your labour is not in vain in the Master.

Your Sunday Bread: Escape or Excuse

download (1)It is a bunch of crock and bull to use the excuse ‘its a spirit’ concerning homosexuality, or rather, all sin for that matter. Well yeah, duhhh it is a spirit, but if we have authority to case out demons in the Name because these people are carrying a wicked spirit then why aren’t people able to cast those out?

In essence, we yell its a spirit, because we do not know what to do. Its like giving up, helpless, without hope and walking away.

Hence, here comes another excuse because people cannot get help which says they are born that way. Bull corn, fooey and boloney! No! Yah said male and female. So if someone is saying different that means they are lying to them self. A lie has to be thought of, convincing self to belief and then acted out. Then someone none discerning believes the lie too wanting to be well like, wanting to be a good parent, friend, not wanting to offend. People are tricked to unbelief. Because there is always a way out. Yah said it, he provides an escape (1 Corinthians 10:13), but we don’t want escape we want excuse. The Most High said that people are without excuse (Romans 1).

Come on now let us reason. Better yet, let us look at the fact that anyone needs help. There is a problem that has over powered the so called church, and its not cause people are not praying, it is because they are praying in the wrong Name.

Your Sunday Bread: The Most High Comforts Where it Hurts

65954_896879876991310_6976952092739595466_nI had no idea Lady GaGa was so pretty. She is a beautiful woman and speaking of her rape at 19 years old, and a subsequent video about the event she says, “I was messed up!” Notably, the star says that she was not so messed up when the event took place, but decidedly pronounces that years later did notice her plight. She spoke about not telling anyone, and even a time when she saw her attacker in the store where she shopped she says though afraid she never told. In essence, it is that way until we own up to the truth, that is it happened and learn to deal with the pain.

In saying that we learn to tell with the pain, Lady GaGa doesn’t see herself as messed up but her outer appearance is a matter of deviance to cover up something and says something altogether different.

In essence some of us are all covering something, that is, hurtfulness never dealt with. Hence, we do outlandish things to draw attention away…lest any one know our secret. No matter, Yah knows our hurt and he cares.

Today: Cast it away!

For your hearing:
Cast your burden on יהוה, And let Him sustain you; He never allows the righteous to be shaken. For You, O Elohim, do bring them down To the pit of destruction; Men of blood and deceit do not reach half their days; But I, I trust in You. (Psalms 55:22,23).
