What does God (Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) want from the followers of His one and only begotten Son Christ Jesus?
The message I hear from God’s Holy Word, is peace and love. Throughout the Scriptures, we are led to this understanding and if I were to try and list all of the peace and/or love Scriptures, this post would be sooo long! God is so Good… He loves us so much and not only gives us His peace but fills us with His Holy Spirit so that we too may exhibit His agape love. WOW, WHAT A GIFT!!
Injustice happens, evil happens, we live in the world. But are we to immediately jump to violence? What good does violence do, when it is self gratifying, when it is motivated and directed by our own personal anger? When we see the things happening in the world, in our nation, in our neighborhood, in our homes, that fill us with rage and/or hatred, the first thing we should do is drop to our knees and seek His guidance, seek His Will, seek His PEACE and LOVE so that our actions are defined by Him only.
Father God, help us… give us ears to hear and eyes to see You and Your Will in the midst of our problems and persecutions, in Jesus Name, AMEN!
Matthew 5:9 – Blessed [are] the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
1 John 4:8 – He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Morpheus: I imagine that right now you’re feeling a bit like Alice. Tumbling down the rabbit hole?
Neo: You could say that.
Morpheus: I can see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he’s expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: ‘Cause I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.
Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know, you can’t explain. But you feel it. You felt it your entire life. That there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there. Like a splinter in your mind — driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?
Neo: The Matrix?
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
(Neo nods his head.)
Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, or when go to church or when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born inside a prison that you cannot smell, taste, or touch. A prison for your mind. (long pause, sighs) Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back.
(In his left hand, Morpheus shows a blue pill.)
Morpheus: You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. (a red pill is shown in his other hand) You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. (Long pause; Neo begins to reach for the red pill) Remember — all I am offering is the truth, nothing more.
(Neo takes the red pill and swallows it with a glass of water)

The word geek is a slang term originally used to describe eccentric or non-mainstream people, with different connotations ranging from an expert or enthusiast to a person heavily interested in a hobby, with a general pejorative meaning of a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, esp[ecially] one who is perceived to be overly intellectual.
Although often considered as a pejorative, the term is also used self-referentially without malice or as a source of pride. Its meaning has evolved to connote “someone who is interested in a subject (usually intellectual or complex) for its own sake.”
By now you probably know of the communist act accomplished right here in America.
If you are not aware, here are a few articles regarding such in order of publishing date:
When the story first broke, I immediately went on a quest for a new browser. I do not like chrome (and dislike google even more), had no interest in opera or ever going back to IE, so, I wanted a browser that was not ‘mainstream’ so to speak. I have been using the firefox browser since 2002, so was very comfortable with the format. I researched, downloaded, tested and deleted multiple browsers and finally decided upon one that I am very happy with, so wanted to share the info in case you too find yourself wanting a change. :D
For those who prefer chrome, check out Comodo Dragon. The IceDragon is based off firefox and the reg Dragon is based off of chrome. Also, if you are interested in further security (block trackers, cookies, etc) check out Ghostery … and for a secure and private search engine that does not track there is Ixquick HTTPS. I have used both of these for years and find them to be wonderful… both can be added to the Comodo IceDragon browser.
Back in 1997 my husband and I joined a ‘home church’ and we had weekly meetings and Bible study… wow, what a blessing that time was, God spoke to us abundantly! We got a bit ‘caught up’ in the whole Y2K thing (not through the church, through other sources) and LEARNED how to be more self sufficient… we had a homestead (milk goats and chickens), we started a pantry, we looked at every day items that were finished with their job and figured out how to transform them or reuse them for other purposes (changing from a ‘throw away’ family, to a resourceful one), we for the first time, thought about the future of mankind and in turn, the future of God’s Church. It was truly a learning and growing time… but Y2K did not happen o_O However, we did not feel embarrassed, ashamed, etc… we LEARNED, and truthfully, I think the biggest lesson we did learn was that our focus should always be on God and never on our own preparations or plans. We still ‘live this way’… we don’t have a bunker or fancy stash, just a small pantry, but it helps us during hard times, to be able to eat! I miss my goats and chickens, but having MS made it very difficult for me to continue with the homestead, hopefully, some day soon we will be able to have chickens again… but first we must build an en-closer to keep the owls from picking them off! Anyway, the purpose of this post is simple. God has been working on me in a different way for the past few months. While I still think it important to be independent and as self sufficient as possible, my focus is way more on my relationship with Him and His Will and He has given me a spirit of peace, one that continually reminds me that He is with me and that no matter what is happening, all is well with my soul! What a blessing!! As the world continues its crazy spin into suicide and the news bombards us every day with more and more proof of the insanity, I have no fear, no ‘the sky is falling’ syndrome, I only have peace in my soul and a continued desire to search His Scripture and follow His Lead, AMEN!! I don’t exactly know why I am sharing this information, just wanted to give Glory to God for all that He Is, even in the midst of the storms. May God’s Will be done in earth as it is in heaven!
God is in control and He gives us the strength and courage we need each day to live… PRAISE JESUS!

Official video below, but I always preferred to watch the genius of this band LIVE!
:D Funky rock that was not ‘mainstream’ back in the day… so it was perfect for me!
Target commercial comes on and as the music played it awakened memories of something similar… it was an 80′s sound! Heard once and hooked! Time to download the album! :D

We are bombarded with information on wars, persecutions, struggles of all types happening around the world. If you are like me, it is hard to know who to trust for information… conflicting reports confuse and blur the facts to the point that it is difficult to know who or what is true. Today I felt led to reshare a post back from August of 2013. God bless you.
- Ones personal salvation is the number one thing anyone should be concerned with, as well as sharing the Lord and His Gift of Grace with loved ones, etc… no matter where one lives in the world
- Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, keep Israel in all prayers. Unsure why? Just search the Scriptures for that answer
- Pay attention to the world events unfolding. Be aware, but do not be afraid, stay in God’s Word for His Peace
- Do not be a victim. While we cannot control most things, we can choose to be as independent and self sufficient as possible. The market will reflect the worlds events… so food, everyday household supplies, gas, etc… will skyrocket and become even more difficult to afford. While I do not suggest one puts their faith in any preparations, I do suggest one has as many goods on hand so when they do rise in cost, there will be a buffer zone to help one accommodate for the ‘new normal’ we find ourselves in. Pick up a few extra cans of food, an extra this or that, things that we think will make us as comfortable as possible, so that our attention and heart can be directed to God our Father in Christ Jesus and our prayers will be focused on events and people and not where our next meal will come from. ‘The Ant & The Grasshopper’ is Biblical in bases… look to Proverbs.
- Pray. AND then be active, put on the Full Armor of God! We must not allow our hearts to wax cold. No matter what our eyes see, no matter what reports we hear, the only thing that matters is The Kingdom of God… The Father of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus… His hand will point the way our feet should travel day by day.
May God’s Will be done in earth as it is in heaven, AMEN
