Death Has Been Vanquished (some of us just don't know it yet - ALL of us will feel it though... on The Day That Has Been Set!)
Friday, April 14, 2006
No Bunnies Need Apply!
It would be interesting to know if this is one of the very few (and perhaps meaningful?) times that Good Friday coincided with the date of the sinking of the Titanic... The date has coincided with a lot of meaningful items of interest before, so much is for sure;
73 A.D. - According to Jewish historian Josephus, 967 Jewish zealots committed mass suicide within the fortress of Masada on this last night before the walls were breached by the attacking Roman Tenth Legion. (Two women and five children survived by hiding in a cistern, and were later released unharmed by the Romans.)
1796 - Death of Joseph Swain, 35, author of the hymn, "O Thou in Whose Presence My Soul Takes Delight."
1906 - The Azusa Street Revival -- proto-mission out of which the modern Pentecostal movement spread world-wide -- officially began when the services led by black evangelist William J. Seymour, 36, moved into the building at 312 Azusa Street in Los Angeles.
1940 - English Bible expositor Arthur W. Pink wrote in a letter: 'Nothing is too great and nothing is too small to commit into the hands of the Lord.'
Amen to that, Arthur! And I like the coincidence that I am the exact same age as Mr. Seymour was, back in 1906 - exactly 100 years ago hence.

thought the last part was really a good thought.
Too bad that the person who sent it to me did
not know 10 people who would admit to knowing the Lord.
If I send this to you, please send it back so I will know that my friends do know the Lord.
I know 10 people.
Do You Love Him?
This is a simple test:
IF YOU LOVE JESUS, SEND
THIS TO AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE, INCLUDING
THE PERSON WHO SENT IT TO YOU!
I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.....
All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They'd laugh at me I'd fear.
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God! held a book;
It was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said
"Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time"
Now do you have the time
to pass it on?
I live in my own little world.
But it's OK... They know me

And it is a nice alternative to firing back at simpleton relatives and their like.
It is also quite a good read and it is fitting, right now, with all that's been happening in "luminousland"... good and (mostly) bad...
Another formidable forwardable, true and true!
Than it is to share it with someone intimate
I learned that aspiring toward my desires takes true commitment
And, a solid belief that my goals have legitimacy
I learned that asking for understanding is sometimes impossible
But, giving understanding is not
I learned that trying to prepare others for what lies ahead,
May confuse their innocence and thwart their progress
I learned that saying no to someone else, even when they object
Can help them learn to say no in their own lives, when need be
I learned that wanting and needing are hard to separate
But the difference is of great importance
I learned that I am stronger than I thought I was
And, that I need both strength and insight to function
I learned that I will not always feel positive
But that, my down days give me perspective
I learned that patience takes self-discipline
But, its rewards are immense
I learned that laughing after making a mistake
Does not erase its valuable lesson
I learned that letting someone else’s laughter reach my heart
Is just as rewarding as saying something to make them laugh
I learned that appreciation of others, of life and of challenges
Causes each day to be full and fruitful
I learned that it is good to expect better of one’s self
But, not so good to stress over petty details
I learned that living is not one huge moment of joy
It is the travel, and the unravel — the discovery of life,
That builds foundations for joy and for loving and living
~By N.O. Tate (Reprinted with Permission)
Guard within yourself that treasure, kindness.
Know how to give without regret, how to acquire without meanness;
know how to replace in your heart,
by the happiness of those you love, the
happiness that may be wanting to yourself.

You may be tired...
don't give up.
You may feel alone...
don't give up.
You may feel like you've been in the storm too long...
don't give up.
You may feel like the enemy is beating you down...
don't give up.
You may feel like no one cares and no one sees you...
don't give up.
You may feel smothered with responsibilities, work and bills...
don't give up.
You may feel defeated, angry, hurt, put down and fed up...
Don't give up!
In divine time your breakthrough will come because of your
perseverance, faith and your willingness to learn.
Stay open and optimistic because your next opportunity and blessing
will probably come from the most unexpected person or place.
Remember, always stay in the Light, keep on keep'n on.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health,
and quiet breathing....
- John Keats
Guess I needed a break from the lambasting - and no; I'm never giving up. In any way, shape or form.
Check out the likewise appropriately thematic song by Jim Rice (number 8 on the list) on the main link today.
And thank you to the kind soul who sent me this most "formidable forwardable" right when I needed it - and I realize that said person does not even know WHY I need it! More evidence that Divine Providence does exist.

I can't stand falsehood. I can't stand those types of friends who are ALL there when things are all right; but have long disappeared when things are not going as good all of a sudden.
I hate those generous types who GIVE... GIVE... AND GIVE SOME MORE... and it is all FOR SHOW! Giving is easy - and it is the best P.R. too. It has NO VALUE WHATSOEVER though if it does NOT come from the heart! And those who think that the generous ones are AUTOMATICALLY "good" are gullible FOOLS.
I hate those types who pretend to like you... until you say ONE thing they deem offensive in their warped view of things. It is then that the TRUE SENTIMENTS become apparent and the pretenders cannot keep on pretending anymore... By the Way, it is a fallacy to think that any one who belongs to this sad category can be deemed to be "great" - whoever wrote the song "The Great Pretender" was drunk! And I always wished Chrissie Hynde got out of the Pretenders - it was a good move for her when she finally did!
I hate jealous oafish types. I hate envious dark hearts, darkened by their own pettiness. Those latter types are oftentimes friendly too - the "falsest" of false friends, they will look on at every single one of your accomplishments with cursing eyes that secretly wish ruin upon you (and maybe it is only subconsciously - hey, these types are pathetically thinking that THEY are the kind ones and that those who see them as they REALLY ARE are the "evil" ones! Hence, they are seriously impaired... in many ways, with many senses affected.)
I know MANY like this... and I am so sick and tired of putting up with them.
The aggravating factor is that two of these are RELATED TO ME! (Barely)
YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE - and to you both I say... GET A BRAIN! GET A HEART! Heck... get a new pair of eyes cause you are both BLIND and the jealousy I see in your current pair of owl-like ocular orbs makes it downright scary to see you ogling just about ANYONE AND ANYTHING! QUIT DOING THAT - YOU LOOK LIKE TWO WITCHES WHEN YOU DO THAT! Oh - and just be happy that I don't NAME you here...
Another wretched category of peeps that I find execrable is the BLASÉ, HEARTLESS, UNMOVED-BY-ANYTHING kind...
Look at these four guys... their band is called THAT; "blood has been shed". And yes, it has! And yes, it is! EVERY SINGLE DAMN DAY ON THIS ACCURSED PLANET, BLOOD IS BEING SPILT, senselessly... And do these four guys really give a damn? DOES ANYBODY GIVE A DAMN?
The answer is NO.
Not unless it HITS HOME, you won't!
AND THAT ATTITUDE IS EXECRABLE!
You are to cry when your brother/sister cries...
You are to laugh with your brother/sister... (and not at their expense! Precision!)
You are to FEEL THE PAIN AROUND YOU - NOT BE TOTALLY UNSENSITIVE TO IT!
What happened to supporting the widows... the orphans... the persecuted... the afflicted... the victims... the sick... the poor... the homeless... the hungry... the dying?
DO ANY OF YOU STOP TO THINK ONE MINUTE HOW THE OTHER PERSON FEELS?
DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH IMAGINATION TO SEE YOURSELVES WALKING IN THEIR SHOES?
Do you even make an effort to understand your fellow man...?
I know, for a fact, that the two owl-eyed windbags that I just lambasted here (again, anonymously - and, again, be thankful for that, windbags!) HAVE NEVER DONE ANY OF THOSE THINGS IN THEIR LIVES!
One more strike against them in The Book Of Life - oh well, they'll have company where they're likely to be going...

The real story here today is about a nitwit broad who DARED quote from the Holy Bible when she found herself unable to rival with my eloquence and witty repartee. That happens all the time. But what seldom happens, to me, is to see the hypocrite try and turn the tables on me by affixing MY PERSON with his or her major flaws... THAT, folks, has to be the most laughable thing of all - on top of being the most pathetic attempt at coming out on top in the history of mankind. Blind fools who can only see things in reverse evidently don't know any other way to go about TRYING (against all hope and reason) to win their arguments...
Hence the WITCH looked up a passage of the Good Book to call upon WOE that really can only befall HER wretched hypocritical kind... What brought that about was that I was telling her truths she can't STOMACH. She has CHANGED RELIGIONS because of that sickly behaviour of hers - COWARDICE is what it is! She can't believe that EVIL exists, that there are fallen angels and, especially, she can't accept that she made such a pathetic mistake by marrying a jerk the first time around... giving birth to TWO (rather than just one) bastards from that unholy union... and DIVORCING (which, for her culture, is a shame). Hence she sought and signed up with a so-called "church" that doesn't believe in evil or devils and, most importantly, wipes out the VALIDITY of her first marriage! Hence, she could remarry nonchalantly with a SECOND JERK who adheres to the same mockery of a church - the mimickery and amalgamation of various styles officially known as the officious Christadelphians. (I do hope a Christadelphian will have the guts to comment on here; it might prove to be impossible though, judging from their inability to READ the Word - how can they read this blog?!?)
Now, as for the woes SHE HAS COMING HER WAY...
A fascinating search, courtesy of Bible Gateway (linked to TLB Prime since day one!) has unearthed no less than 95 hits and NONE is phrased quite the way that her DOCTORED BIBLE phrases it... Not surprising at all to me, really...
