life changing codes to live by.

1. Pray about everything.
2. Stay calm.
3. Don't argue with people.
4. Think the best about people instead of assuming the worst.
5. Forgive every offense.
6. Pay attention to the people who cross your path. Listen to people, make eye contact. Try to communicate and be objective and non-judgmental. Those People, those souls are the only thing you see right now that might still be there in the next life. They are more important than any thing, insecurities or busy-ness that binds you.
7. Remember to SHARE the gifts bestowed upon you.
8. Take time to meditate.. reflect on your recent choices. Shine the Light.
9.  Walk in gratitude.. Rejoice in all things.

devotionals with Yah. +2

we opened this morning, called in babylon august 10, 2016, 6:15am, to:

"i confess to you that after the Way that they call a lie, so i worship the MightyOne of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the torah-law and in the prophets.  and they had a hope in our MightyOne, which in their testimony reveals, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust."  (acts 24:14-15)
what struck me first upon reading these two verses was the part about the resurrection. the resurrection is a pretty big deal; it's one of the defining characteristics of the bible, the claim which sets it apart from all other sanctimonious and so-called-religions. the idea that the dead will ALL be raised from their present slumber, and be sorted like a flock of four-legged grazers into a saved and lost lot. 

in this season i have been walking next to someone going through the valley of the shadow of death, in the darkness of a cloud filled with thoughts of suicide.

this place is so dark, there is nothing real here to grab onto.. except Yah.

The problem with suicide is the carrot it dangles, the idea that it's way is some kind of escape from this life's torment.  the verse in acts is sobering because it reveals clearly, in no uncertain terms, that the speaker stands on the claim of resurrection as an idea not his own, but a rock of truth taught in the ancient records.  This is a huge mountain of defense.  There is no escape in suicide.  You will wake back up in time, and once again face what you didn't want to today.  Only then you will face it in the Presence of the Light made visible, which will lay you bare and un-hidden.

what hits me like a wrecking ball is the realization that it's not going to be what people did wrong that brings so much condemnation and shame when they face the Judge, and their live's books are brought forth and opened up in heaven's courts.  It's not going to be the way they fornicated, the drugs they did, the acts of selfishness, the insecure roots of their guilty baggage.. it's going to be what they missed out on while they stumbled around blind and hurting themselves and others, refusing to come unto their Creator for a healing balm and restoration.  It'll be the future they could have had in the Kingdom, the Kingdom where they had a safe place to escape, the Kingdom they finally see they are going to be missing out on; the torment will come of that reality.  That the treasure they threw away for the dung of this world is gone forever.  And how simple a change in heart, a simple turning back to the Source, would have rendered the sad story of their soul a different ending.

This final revelation of Truth will be agonizing, but they will recognize it and bow the knee to the One who loved them all along and wanted them and died for them, but they refused His ticket home, His Way to life; they refused to get on the Ark of salvation and now the door has closed.  Forever.

devotionals with Yah. +1

morning, on a day known in babylon as tuesday, august 9, 2016.
We fell into Matthew 21:28-32 just by flipping the Book open.

"But what do you think about this? A man with two sons told the older boy, ‘Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.’The son answered,‘No, I wont go, but later he changed his mind and went anyway. Then the father told the other son,‘You go,’and he said,‘Yes, sir, I will.’ But he didn't go. "Which of the two obeyed his father?”
They replied, “The first."
Then Jesus explained his meaning: “I tell you the truth, corrupt tax collectors and prostitutes will get into the Kingdom of God before you do. For John the Baptist came and showed you the right way to live, but you didn’t believe him, while tax collectors and prostitutes did. And even when you saw this happening, you refused to believe him and repent of your sins."  Matthew 21:28-32

The minister went to two men and said come to Jesus and serve Him by serving others.  The first man said, "Nah, i'm good" and went back to his mindless daily grind, the vomit of the world, his partying and wasted time.  Unfulfilled, One day the man was inspired to reach out and start helping people who crossed his path, and slowly day by day finally poured his life out walking in the way of peace and love, in service to others.

Where the second man told the minister, "Yes sir, i accept Jesus into my heart. i'm a sinner dressed up in my church's clothes who said the sinners prayer so now i'm saved."  Then He went about with cherry picked verses, throwing stones of judgement at the homosexual, the drug addict,  and the atheist with lofty words, growing cold in his pew at sunday "service" where he has a lengthy, documented church-membership.  But he turned his back on the poor, he stayed in his sphere of comfort and reached out to no struggling soul who crossed his path day in and day out.

Which of the two did the will of Abba, the Great Spirit Father?

The one who sat in church thinking they were saved but did literally nothing for others. Or the good samaritan, the one who rejected the church clothes but lived a life of service following the leading of the Ruach daily in his interactions with the world, talking to people about the Yah who woke him from his slumber and released him from bondage.  The Messiah said to the Pharisees (the mainstream church members), the whores and the addicts are going into the kingdom before you.

Fifth grade with kirkbride.

He asked her who pissed in her Cheerios.
She got him sent to the principle's office.
She was such a hypersensitive donkey.
She's sorry now about it Kris.

climb out

like the chosen ones
born into exile
drinking this bottle of water i bought
because i can't draw my own
i haven't got a well,
or a stream, or a white picket fence

but i started at what i thought
was the bottom
until i learned the hard way
that there's a button there
and if you push it
the bottom always drops down
always it goes deeper still
no rocks to land on
just a gaping black hole

i stood
looking up from the depths
of a wayward descending spiral
reflecting on all the buttons i pushed
in awe to discover
next to each and every one
was a ladder i missed

and from every rung
just over my head
was a Hand reaching down
trying to help me climb out
