Lyrics 7

I wrote another post a few minutes ago below this one. Please read that as well.

When Jesus came into the world, He did so with good intentions, so that the world may be saved, but they continued in their evil ways. The light they wanted was shining right in front of them, but because their deeds were exposed, they fought against Him rather than repenting.
He taught, and they reviled.
He prayed, and they rebelled.
He loved, and they hated.
He healed, and they accused Him. 
He showed them the light, and they mocked Him.
He showed them how to go to Heaven, and they planned to kill Him. 
He spoke, and they drove Him out of cities.
He protected the sheep, and they ran away.
He died, and they laughed.
He saved us from our sins, and we pretend not to hear Him.
How much longer will it continue?

Israel?

I find myself concerned about the Jews in the world, and especially in Israel. The Bible states pretty clearly that the only way for any human to obtain salvation is through Jesus, and today's Judaism doesn't accept Jesus.

Especially considering how much God cares about them, we should pray for them. And evangelize, if possible. But also pray for them.

I also still don't like that Israel today uses a hexagram ("star of David") on their flag. From my understanding, that symbol has no link at all to David. It's certainly not mentioned in the Bible unless, as some interpret Amos 5, God was warning against it when talking about "the star of your god". It doesn't help that the symbol is even more closely associated witchcraft.

I know it's called the "star of David" today,  but its origins should be a pretty big warning sign. Certainly it doesn't belong on Israel's flag.

I would like to stress that I'm not speaking out against Israel, but there's definitely something wrong there, and it's out of love that we should pray.

I had a thought yesterday. So the Bible continues to be the top-selling book each year, which is good! It'd be better if more people took the time to understand what was in it when they bought it, but there you go.

My concern, however, is that some people may mistake this as completely unalterable evidence for Christianity. It's certainly encouraging that even in a world where people can be so greedy as to own mansions and entire garages of cars, and feel justified in it, God's word continues to ring through, but this kind of thing can lead to confusion.

God can guide us to purchase Bibles, and certainly if He really wanted to, He could just force us to, but He doesn't force us to. He guides us. It's our choice whether to buy them or not. Now, I don't think the book of Revelation touches on book sales in any way, but the events described in it certainly suggest a period of time when the Bible won't be at the top of the best-selling lists. Of course, that period of time will end one day, and evil will be defeated in the end, but in the meantime, things are going to look pretty rough for awhile. The point is, we can't take earthly things like book sales and use them as evidence. It's this kind of misguided thinking and assumption-making that causes people to think that unpleasant experiences must be "God abandoning them", or something. (See link)

Again, it's humankind's choice to buy Bibles. Evidence in regard to the purchase of a Bible is somebody who reads the Bible they purchased, and learns from its word. The changes they experience inside would be the evidence. If sales for it were to drop, it would only be the devil tempting people, like he always does. It's an earthly numerical figure. It's important to discern things like this. People often get confused over human perception, vs the actual truths implied by Christianity. If anything, if sales were to ever drop, that would probably be a good sign for us to turn to God even more. See?

Approach this subject prayerfully.
God bless you all, according to His perfect will. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Lyrics 6

I wrote this at the top of the page in the notebook: Matthew 10:41-42, 18:1-4, 10-14, 19:13-15, 23:37-38

Sadness at the blackened compassionlessness of man; corrupting our youth for a measly dollar. 

Selling out our youth in deception and carelessness, leaving them open to be taken by the foe, you start up industries and trends, promoting materialism, killing the spirit within; riding on them is the disgusting image of your own agendas, riding on youth to back your sinister desires. 

Ruining the integrity of our children, you leave them exposed to wolves, by adhering to society for the purpose of inoffensiveness, and indifference, and disgust in the name of evil. 
Distorting the truth of ancient, you deceive the innocent by infecting them with plague, subliminally ruining them, leaving our future dead. You drag society down to its lowest level to fulfill your wicked purposes, and target our children to make it happen. 

Woe to the one who puts a stumbling block before these little ones; it would be better for you if a millstone were tied around your neck and you were drowned in the sea. 

The media is satanic, and will not rest until children are fully in their claws. We who watch them introduce them to a Being who wishes to embrace them, to care for them, to warm their souls anew, the heavenly Father, and we will resist all else until all else is gone.

Lyrics 5

The deaf know that hearing exists
The blind know that seeing exists
The numb know that feeling exists
But they do not experience it
So why do they still believe in it?

Humanity cannot experience spiritual feelings with the five senses, so many assume that spirits and Biblical truths do not exist.

They are truly deaf, blind and numb. 

Many assume that spiritual truths do not exist. 

They are deaf, blind and numb.

Lyrics 4

Reference for these lyrics: John 18:28 up to John 19:22

A fountain of lies spews from this Earth.
All too many are ready to drink at the first sign of thirst.
How many of us are like Pilate, subtly supporting
Christ while publicly denying and working against his teachings?

Blindness

While I'm here, I've been meaning to point something out.

It seems some people are confused when Biblical figures' sight is hidden from something. They ask how someone could be blind to such an obvious thing, like when Jesus appeared after rising from the dead, and people didn't recognize Him right away.

Well, I remember an instance last year when my mother was digging in the back yard, and asked for my assistance moving a "big rock". I moved the "big rock". About two weeks later, she pointed out to me that apparently this "big rock" was actually part of a tombstone. (I heard our street was supposedly built on top of a graveyard, or something.) There was even writing on it, and it had clearly been shaped into a tombstone with corners, flat sides, etc. As somebody who's known for spotting minute details in things (apparently I'm known for this among my family/friends..?) I should have been able to pick up on something so obvious. The corners were clear, and the writing was hard to miss. Even if I personally had somehow missed both of those things despite my (apparent?) ability to pick up on details, a second person was there and also didn't see it. For two weeks.

This is only one example involving two of a huge number of people who have lived throughout the course of human history. I'm not saying that this encounter necessarily has direct, divine significance, but it does go to show how easy it is for the human mind to be blinded from things. So then, the parts of the Bible that discuss somebody's sight/perception being prevented from picking up on something, aren't really that far-fetched in the first place.

God bless you all once more, according to His perfect will. In Jesus' name. Amen.
