GOP: HIDING BEHIND GOD

In truth, for all of the GOP’s religious posturing, they do not believe the Word of God. Their politics and policies are the antithesis of Christian doctrine. Since when have the Catholics been the sole driving force of God’s wisdom and the depository of knowledge? A very limited theological understanding is on display from alleged “Catholics” in the Congress, Senate, Fox news and Right wing talk shows. It is an abomination to despise the poor, afflicted, sick, elderly and the least among us. It shows an flagrant lack of charity. The apostle Paul states that the greatest virtue is charity. “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.” Ist Corintihians 13:1   “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son…”  This is because God is love.

What is on display is “another gospel” being preached. It has no value or virtue. It is devoid of power. It shall not be allowed to prevail. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7 The sowing of fraud in the name of God shall not go unpunished. Do these deceivers think that God is sleeping?  “Behold He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep” Psalm 121:4  The very thing to which the GOP have committed themselves will turn upon them and devour them. 

Their money shall not buy them the White House, for their purpose is power for the sake of power and not for the good of the people they claim to represent. They do not offer a vision of justice or unity. The have no vision.  “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased in goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor and blind and naked:…” Revelations 3:17  Misrepresenting God is an offense for the which judgement must be administered.   Do not be angry or dismissive of the true Word of God you claim your policies are based upon.  Obey the Word of God and turn from the propagation of a false gospel or stop hiding behind God while you violate His Word. The choice and the judgement that follows is yours.

THE SEER

THE SEER

Craggy visage
framed by snow-locks.
Power mantle unfurls
upon a servant’s feet.

Garbled voices give
way to white-misted,
billowy clouds nesting
in a bed of symbols.

Flesh feasts
upon divine symbols
with viper-drool fangs.

The seer stands alone.

Wildflowers of white
yellow & lavender. Early
birds flying with mates.
Flooded creeks flash-dry.

Morning dew hides
from first light. Silence…
Rumbling underground
seeking wide-lipped spout.

Flurries scurry
to orbital peripheries.
Discernment of shadows.

The seer stands alone.

Within timeless frames
& frameless times…

The seer stands alone.

THE THIRD ALICE TRILOGY

MOONDROPS

Mother moon cries. Eye-weeper.

Earth’s waters replenish her tears.

Mother moon cries in great travail.

THE TWIXT & THE TWIDDLE

Coal-black armor on midnight steed.
Swords clashing in the heavenlies.

We lie between twixt and twiddle.
Seeking safety and understanding.

THE THIRD ALICE

Asleep, the third Alice has
appeared in the third Heaven.

Her unglorified body flits
easily into celestial spaces;

haunting heaven thru desire.

Awake, she is weighed down;
the temporal demands of life.

The third Alice sees the glorious
flash of white wings encircle her.

Hears pure knowledge whisper
to her spirit, “soon, but not yet.”

GOP DIABOLICS IN PLAY

The GOP fueled by the erratic Tea Party rose to power in 2010 based on
repetitious lies. The promises that they said were their priorities were fictitious.
They swept in countless GOP governors to do the work of taking away rights, services
& sustenance to the families over the which they exerted control in a plethera of states.

In a bizarre campaign promise contradiction, they led with their social agenda. Trying
to destroy unions, women’s rights & college education. All of this done in the name of
Christian values. They are false Christians, not having understood the Beatitudes.

They are so full of hate for President Obama that they have sold their souls in the hating.
It is written, “But he that hateth his brother, is in darkness, and walketh in darkness and
knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness has blinded his eyes.” I John 1:11

Imagine denying a woman the right to choose, forcing her to have a baby, then denying
her the assistance she may need to feed and provide for her child. This will happen if GOP
governors are given “block medicaid funds.” Corrupt governors will just give the money to
their rich donors. How will these children of “rape & incest’ be fed?

Imagine the super rich fortified in their mansions with an arsenal of weapons to shoot any
hungry, roaming masses that have become their victims. Shall we see massive death in
America? Shall we see the middle class homeless? Shall we witness snipers in the ivory
towers of the rich shooting down hungry protesting people? The GOP/Tea Party future
for America is sick and dark.

How long shall the blinded stay blind? How long shall the racist hate, voting against his
own interest? What baby boomer does not have elderly parents on medicare, in assisted
living or nursing homes? These middle-agers will have to pay for the medical care of their
parents who have paid into the social security system their whole lives & got cheated
on medicare to give tax breaks to the rich.

Be afraid. Be very afraid if the GOP have their way. Children, women of reproductive age,
college students, baby boomers & the elderly have to let go of their “fear of a black man”
and begin to see the alternative for what it is: guaranted increase in income for the rich and
for the politicians that make it possible. Heaven help us all, for despair & death is on the
doorstep in America.

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S FAITH

President Obama is a Spirit-led Christian. It was not he, himself, who dictated that he run for the office of the Presidency. God chose him to fufill righteousness because of the blood of the prophets shed in America. He rose to power following a commanded path as a Christian: take up your cross and follow Him. As Christians we are commanded to be like Christ. In Scripture, Jesus Christ is called the ‘Lamb of God.’ He is also called ‘the Lion of the tribe of Judah.’ The duality of this spiritual mystery is lost on those who do not know enough about the greatest mystery wrought at Calvary.

When President Obama was Senator Obama, he rose to heights walking the path of the ‘Lion of the tribe of Judah.’ He was revered as the ‘lion’ because of connotated strength. However, when it was time for President Obama to walk the way of the cross as the ‘Lamb of God’, he was accused of being weak. He was reviled by all including his own base. They do not know about the ‘crucified-life’ of the true believer. Those who claim to know Christ, but will not receive His vessel because of the color of his skin or his concern for the poorest among us, do not know the Lord they claim as their Savior. It is one thing to have Christ as Savior, it is entirely another to make Christ the Lord of your life. Making Him Lord requires a complete surrender to the way of the cross.

We shall see more of the ‘lion’ in President Obama in the times ahead, dealing with a fractured, belligerent Congress. We shall recognize the ‘lamb’ whenever his kindness is mistaken for the flaw of weakness. The Lord is very well pleased with President Obama. “…he shall not be moved.” Psalm 21:7 So, with all of the upcoming sound & fury, none shall not triumph in their attempts to dismantle Obama’s Presidency. I’ve been shown a glimpse of 2011 & 2012, but I do not have a releasement to share it. So, prognosticators, prognosticate. Babylonian soothsayers, soothsaye. At the end of the day, it will only be what God has said that will be able to stand.

PALIN: ROMAN GODDESS OF THE HUNT INCARNATE

I have spent the last THIRTY years studying “spiritual warfare.” Spiritual warfare is nothing without the spirt of discernment which is so lacking in the pews today. The spirit of Jezebel came into the Church awhile ago, along with other various religious spirits, to infiltrate. They have redirected the Church from the social gospels to mammon-worship. By mammon worship, I mean  the love of money, power and fame. This is a real trick or treat from Satan, right here, right now. There are those who choose to not see since having a black man as President is just not acceptable to many. Look how cleverly Satan planned this one. McCain and Palin have declared war on the media to suppress the fact that she lies, alot! Also, if anyone has a fair criticism of her, we will hear the shout, “sexism!” This is a lady who kills moose, I mean, honestly! She can’t take a punch? Well, she can sure throw one!

Matthew 24:24 reads, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”  The Republicans have been trying to paint Obama as a false Christ for their own political purposes. Never once has Senator Obama said anything other than he is a follower of Christ. For evidence of his heart, research the note that Obama left in the Wailing Wall in the city of Jereusalem (which was taken and published.) It does not suggest anything but a sincere follower of Christ. There are two camps here; those who would follow the social gospels(“…love your neighbor as you love yourself…”) and those who want to hang their hat on Roe vs. Wade, dismissive of the suffering people that are ALREADY here; many of them dying daily as the rich get richer. What does the Church champion today besides overturning Roe Vs. Wade? Hanging the whole of the gospels on one tenent of faith is what makes the Evangelical Church call other churches “cults.”

Satan has released from his bag of tricks, one of the oldest pagan deities, Diana, Roman goddess of the hunt. She has not shown up incarnate like this for eons. Diana was the beautiful, athletic, Roman diety of the hunt, children, feminine values, chastity,  also possessing a free spirit. Sounds like Palin down to every detail. Perhaps, the Church can NOW give us a working definition of a christian-feminist. Diana is mentioned in Acts 19:28, “…Great is Diana of the Ephesians.” In modern Italy, it is said that witches were to have descended from Diana. Today there is a branch of wicca named for her.  Nowhere, but in a place like Alaska, could such an deity emerge upon the state as well as the national scene. Palin is none other than Diana in the flesh. The spirit of deception and error is on display, and the Church at large is falling for it hook, line and sinker. Should I bother to mention that Senator McCain has a hook in his jaw? What a big fish he is! Palin, initially a Catholic, has been in various Pentacostal churches growing up, but has no problem posing seductively for magazine covers, such as Vogue. Is that cleavage? I don’t know about you, but in the many Pentacostal churches that I attended, cleavage was not tolerated. Is this the future of the Church or the Church of the “new” politics?

The state of Alaska is brimming with stories of Palin’s legendary vindictivness. My Bible tells me forgiveness is the minimum requirement for having God even hear your prayers. There are bloodied footprints in the snow everywhere. Bloody from a brazen disregard for the lives of animals as well as the people whom she deemed prey;  fallen by one of Palin’s poison arrows. All of this was spun as “Maverick”reform.  I would suggest to you that Palin has compromised more than she has revealed in her journalistic reinvention of herself. Palin has charmed the good people of Alaska to entrust her with power, then abused it as well as them. She can sure deliver an attack, can’t she? Is this what Jesus is about right now? Isn’t the Father concerned about filling his house with sons and daughters? I do not see any evidence of the “servant’s heart” that Palin talked about. What I see is someone who has served herself to more and more power, by virtue of her beauty and iron fist. Eeeks! Is this someone that should lead our nation into the future? Who will be left standing if we are all prey to this in-the-flesh-ancient goddess?

McCain has sent his people and the Bush people are up in Alaska trying to cover up her bloody tracks, right now. She has various churches in Alaska praying for her, but they have been deceived by her. In the face of the ongoing scandals regarding Palin, they will ignore them, as requested by their pastors. Palin is a spin-master who has sold herself to the Republican nominee as a champion/victim. She is no victim. Should they succeed in their bid for presidency, I wouldn’t bet two nickels on McCain’s life expectancy. Diana, I mean Palin will snuff it out as scheduled. The health community will cry McCain suffered from health problems secondary to his age and history of cancer. It would be more like the result of “witchcraft prayer.” Then, voila, the more favored, luminous President Palin; ruling, reigning and dining on bloody “red meat.”
