Thoughts…. Success by #ShobhaIyer

SUCCESS is getting what you want…HAPPINESS is wanting what you get…

“The things that makes your heart beat faster and your eyes glow when you do it or talk about it, no matter if it’s hiking, yoga, gardening, painting, meditation, love, photography, going for walks, helping others – do that. Do it as often as you can. Because that’s what life is about. Creating as many passionate, happy moments as possible. Don’t let anyone stop you from doing the things you love – not even yourself.”

Two ‘Newbies” in the House: A Comparative Assessment [Video]

AOC and Dan Crenshaw

The U.S. Capitol Building at night

The current crop of freshmen Representatives in the U.S. Congress feature some colorful personalities as well as diverse perspectives. Admittedly, the Democratic newbies have gotten the most attention because of radical statements, policy proposals, and controversies.

However, there is one Republican rookie who has been turning heads, Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw. It might be illuminating to assess this GOP rising star in comparison with the Left’s most meteoric House member, N.Y. Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Their Resumes

What do we know about AOC and Crenshaw before they came to Congress? What might serve as a hypothetical resume for each of them?

Inset.Image.1.3.8.2019Let’s start with Ms. Ocasio-Cortez. She grew up in the Bronx, New York City as the daughter of a father of Puerto Rican descent who was born in America, and a mother who was born in Puerto Rico.

Her involvement with politics began while she was attending college at Boston University. She became an intern in the immigration office of Senator Ted Kennedy during his final year in the Senate.

What AOC says about that time is illustrative.

I was the only Spanish speaker, and as a result, as basically a kid—a 19-, 20-year-old kid—whenever a frantic call would come into the office because someone is looking for their husband because they have been snatched off the street by ICE, I was the one that had to pick up that phone, …I was the one that had to help that person navigate that system.

AOC graduated from Boston University in 2011 with a degree in international relations and economics. She went back to her home in the Bronx to help support her mother, as her father had passed in 2008.

Her next foray into politics came as an organizer for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign. She was inspired to run for office during her work traveling the country for Sanders.

AOC’s campaign and election resembled something straight out of a Hollywood script, especially her victory in the Democratic primary. While working as a bartender, she managed to defeat a 10-time incumbent Democrat who had a huge advantage in funding.

What about Representative Crenshaw? His ‘resume’ is slightly different. First off, he is five years older than AOC, having been born in 1984.

Dan CrenshawCrenshaw grew up in Katy, Texas. His mother died when he was a child, and afterward, he lived with his father who worked in the oil industry.

Since his father traveled and lived for long periods of time overseas, Crenshaw spent time living in Ecuador and Columbia as a youth. He became proficient in Spanish during those years, which is perhaps the only characteristic he and AOC share.

Crenshaw graduated from Tufts University in 2006. During his time at Tufts, he joined the Reserve Officers Training Corps [ROTC] and became a commissioned officer in the Navy after graduation.

He became a Navy SEAL and served 10 years which included three tours of duty overseas. In 2012 while serving in Afghanistan, he was injured by an Improvised Explosive Device [IED] and lost his right eye as a result.

As a Navy SEAL, he earned two Bronze Star Medals, the Purple Heart, and the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with valor. He medically retired from military service in 2016

After military service, he went on to obtain a Masters degree in Public Administration from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government in 2018. During that time he also worked as a legislative assistant for Texas Congressman Pete Sessions.

Crenshaw began his campaign in November of 2017 and had to survive a contentious runoff election in the Republican primary. However, the most interesting incident of the campaign happened just prior to the general election in November of 2018.

Comedian Pete Davidson made a mocking remark about Crenshaw as a joke on the November 3, 2018 episode of Saturday Night Live. The public disapproval of that joke has been credited by some as helping Crenshaw secure victory in the election the following Tuesday.

However, what happened the following Saturday on SNL was remarkable.

Davidson’s sincere apology for his remarks the week before and Crenshaw’s good-natured acceptance of the apology was a refreshing look at the character of both. Moreover, it was an impressive first appearance on the national scene for the newly-elected Representative.

Political Positions

The political positions of AOC and Crenshaw could hardly be farther apart. Ocasio-Cortez is extreme Left-wing Socialist, while Crenshaw is a solidly Conservative Republican.

AOCThe greatest example of AOC’s political aspirations is the now infamous Green New Deal. Her surprising influence in less than 3 months has gathered support for the GND from every declared Democrat candidate for President in 2020.

The most recent estimated cost of that Socialist nightmare was 93 trillion dollars! However, the inconceivable amount has not deterred AOC or her minions.

AOC is also a proponent of abolishing Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and basically an open borders status for America.

As might be expected, Crenshaw opposes the ‘Green Dream.’ He has ably stated the reasonable objections to it in many forums.

However, there are some far less publicized positions that Dan Crenshaw has put forth which deserve attention for a fair comparison between the Texas Republican and AOC.

Crenshaw was joined by two other Representatives back in January of this year in proposing a bill to withhold the salaries of Congress, the Vice President, and the President in the event of a government shutdown. Crenshaw stated at the time,

Federal employees should never have to carry the burden caused by a dysfunctional government, …We should have to feel the very real effects of a shutdown, just as our fellow federal employees are forced to do.

Concerning that same issue, Crenshaw also revealed something the Mainstream media, umm… had skipped over.

Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw reported on Twitter that Republicans had a plan to pay federal workers during the shutdown. But that proposal did not pass because all but 6 Democrats voted against it.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw

@RepDanCrenshaw

Big deal that never got reported:

Last week, House GOP voted to pay federal employees their 1st paycheck of 2019, despite shutdown. Only 6 Dems voted with us. It failed.

Dem priority is not paying workers or opening gov’t. It is opposing Trump. http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2019/roll043.xml 

59.9K people are talking about this

Border wallThis was while the shutdown was happening. Employees could have received pay during the shutdown itself if this had passed. It will be interesting to see at election time if federal workers remember which party had their backs during the shutdown, and which did not.

Rep. Crenshaw is also a vocal supporter of border security, including a physical barrier aka a ‘border wall,’ and an advocate of President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration.

Public Presence

One factor remains to conclude this assessment. That is the factor of public presence.

Presence refers to the public persona of each person. As national public officials, a large portion of their lives is now subject to media scrutiny. In today’s society, this means the scrutiny of social media, as well as TV and radio coverage.

For example, AOC was recently questioned about real concerns with probable ethics violations and ‘laundering’ or ‘funneling’ money to her boyfriend, through her campaign manager. The violation involved her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti, using a Political Action Committee’s funds to pay AOC’s boyfriend thousands of dollars.

The campaign manager and AOC herself said the boyfriend was not on staff [even though her office had listed him as staff] and the payments were not unethical. However, it was found that the boyfriend also was given a House e-mail account, which the rules state is wrong unless he is actually part of the staff. 

AOC and Ben CrenshawAOC’s excuse was that her boyfriend needed a house.gov email account to have access to her Congressional calendar. Hmm …guess she forgot how to text him about her schedule.

Moreover, she seems to want to be excused from media attention towards her personal life.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired off a tweet suggesting that the media unfairly target her family and love life in their reporting – and I can’t stop laughing. Here’s the tweet:

You know, when I got to DC I was told that it’s considered “off limits” to report on a member’s family, love life, etc. Unsure why that consideration is suspended for me. (Also for those who ask how I learned to handle pressure, try being the only daughter in a Latino household) https://t.co/M2lgHITz1B

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 5, 2019

AOC has apparently not been paying attention to media coverage of late. Especially the mainstream media’s metaphoric ‘body-cavity search’ and automatic condemnation of any family member of President Trump’s household, including his young son, Barron.

How does Rep. Crenshaw present himself in light of media attention? We have already seen the very classy way he responded to Saturday Night Live’s mockery.

Here is another reaction by Crenshaw decrying the Leftmedia, but not for anything targeting him. Instead, he speaks out about the anti-Christian bias of the MSM.

Dan Crenshaw

@DanCrenshawTX

Media blunders this week:
-hardly any coverage of #MarchforLife
-Buzzfeed lies about Cohen case
-slandering Covington Catholic students over false narrative
-slandering Karen Pence for working at Christian school

3 out of 4 are fundamentally anti-Christian. Just last 7 days.

20.9K people are talking about this

The Texas Congressman recently appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” and calmly dismantled the hyperbole of the media attacks on President Trump. In response to the leftist claim that Trump is attacking freedom of the press, Crenshaw replied,

How has he done that? The Obama administration had many press members under investigation, Trump has not, so what is the difference here?

Crenshaw is 100% correct about Obama. He actually tried squashing freedom of the press with everything from seizing records to covert surveillance of reporters he didn’t like.

All Trump has done is briefly expel an obnoxious reporter who hogged the microphone from the privileged seat at the White House press briefings. Oh yeah, and he has called the Leftmedia names.

Much remains to be seen concerning both AOC and Crenshaw and their performance as ‘newbies’ in the House. Moreover, since they are both considered rising stars in their respective political circles, they will also be targeted, fairly or not, as defining the policies of their Party.

This analysis is not definitive by any stretch of the imagination. Yet, it can be instructive as to which person is best suited to the role of U.S. Representative that both are occupying now.

In that light, my hope is that we will see more of the likes of Rep. Crenshaw and far less of the likes of AOC in Congress. However, I am not making that prediction, and I’m not holding my breath waiting for it to happen.

I also hope and pray that all who would govern would desire the same as Solomon did from God when he became the King of Israel.

Give your servant, therefore, an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people? 1 Kings 3:9 [ESV]

Ego Avenue

The giant oaks turned golden in the fall, shading the avenue of homes trimmed of gold. The walkways of washed aggregate and stained concrete floors in the garage smell of money. An oriental rug lies squarely beneath the oil plug of the minister’s Rolls and Bentleys. It’s a lovely life – a weekend cabin in the foothills of the Castiles, a yacht swaying at the dock of their favorite country club. Their lifestyles are of the rich and famous. Do I need to tag them with names for you or the descriptions of these church leaders who appear on TV and radio, bearing witness?

Have you ever tried to contact these evangelists personally even if you are a member of their congregation? Several of these ministers started following my blog last year. I tried to respond to some of their emails, but a computer-generated nonresponse system returned it. One such minister put an email address at the bottom of his correspondence with an enticing note to always feel free to connect with him. Are you kidding me? This is a man who is a public servant of God, and he lies about his contact information on his website and newsletters! It makes me wonder…

I used to collect mail from a rather sizeable religious outfit who films daily television and documentary shows. I’d call it a church, but it was all about money. I never met the soft-spoken old man who read from the pulpit, though he wasn’t there when I entered the building. He hides behind the silver screen while anointing his son to be the Senior Pastor.

Another younger notoriety wears his sacred cross, but is more concerned of the welfare of his structures, which he owns, than of those whose dollars helped to build it. An example of his personal greediness was during a hurricane which hit his area two years ago. Homeless people, seeking comfort from the storm, stood outside in nature’s wrath because he wouldn’t open his church doors. Perhaps he was afraid of damages incurred – a chunk out of his own pocket which might affect the mortgage payment on his $10.5 million home.

I could continue with my tirade, but Christians are smart enough to observe who indeed professes to do the Lord’s work. There was only one minister I knew who was genuine and a spiritual adviser to many Presidents. His money filtered through to the crusades he conducted in 185 countries on six continents. He passed away last year and now works for Christ in a different capacity.

I see the actions of these Bible scholars, who can’t live what they preach in front of millions. Most believers are aware clergy are the amongst the lowest-paid occupations. So, how are they living in mega mansions and in the lap of luxury? Do they ever use their personal income from TV appearances and other sources to give back to their communities? Or is preaching the Word of God just a business designed to make them a millionaire?

As I look down Ego Avenue and observe its evilness, I thank God for my health and my wife who keeps me in check. A simple Christian writer and life, I am blessed by the Holy Spirit, and I have peace in my soul. A few friends asked me if I was afraid of giving out my cell phone number which is written on my business cards. My honest reply was why? I’m no better than the mentoring I try to give to others. I meet many wonderful people from around the world – some famous, but most are common folk. I treat everyone the same. Spiritual leaders should be receptive and have personal contact with believers, especially with individuals they follow on social media.

To those who live on Ego Avenue and read my blogs, are you better than our Lord? After all, Jesus was a dirt poor man, and he was always reachable in desperate times. He laid the foundation for your obligations as a clergy member – to provide spiritual, moral guidance, and assistance to believers. If I’m wrong, then please correct me.

My examples of hypocrites and false witnesses, in the name of our Lord, only touch the surface of the United States. I’m sure dozens more exists in countries worldwide. Some may say security issues are dilemmas facing the famous religious leaders, but I highly doubt this. Too many other upstanding clergy submerge themselves in others’ lives unharmed. I think the root of the problem is simple – the love of money. Perhaps it should be explained as “delivering God’s word in order to become a millionaire.” Call it greed or narcissism; either way, God will place a harsher judgment on them. As someone once said, “Knowledge is a dangerous thing!”

Are there any “amens” to my point of view?

What Is To Be? Is The World Coming To An End Or? Is Mankind To Prevail Over The Almighty’s Power And Authority Over His Creation? Time Is Telling ….

 

Journal—An Ongoing Dialog Between thiaBasilia And Master Yahuwah/Yahushua. …

Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 10:06 pm.

Time Is Telling No Doubt ….

The human element is going on, on queue –Knowledge. Business. Entertainment. Romantic Love. Noble humanistic ways, on and on the busyness goes on and on, but!

Time is telling. Time is saying—loudly lovingly saying, “I AM COMING TO MY END. BEWARE, O HUMAN, BEWARE!

Ha! A Doomsayer! Nonsense! Maybe Not. Read On …?

This day is coming to an end with a great note! O my Father? You are full of wonderful surprises for Your child.

Yesterday was a downer, but! Today? It turned out to be an upper! The cause? Whatsapp. SIWO Board Members. My inability to type in the phone screen.

All that insidious junk running through my carnal mind, but! My Father’s love and wisdom prevailed. Father whispered to me:

“Go to Whatsapp in your desktop. Read the instructions carefully to activate the app in your computer so you can type your heart out to communicate with the Board at SIWO.”

Wow! This time? In no time all my computer is set to handle whatsapp from my desktop. What a feat conquered!

Victory! Defeat! Up! Down, But! ….?

It’s now 11:35 pm. Suspense. Nothing has happened for the last couple of hours. I find myself as usual? Not knowing which way to turn, but! That’s only momentarily.

Anyhow? I’ll go to bed. Things will look better when I wake up if? I go to sleep. Perhaps things would look worse. No matter. In glee or gloom? You always zoom!

Good Reason To Sit Still And Wait ….?

Monday, April 16, 2018 at 3:07 am.

O my Father, thanks for Your Presence. I am not alone. Even so, the human element is not to be found, but!

You have good reason for things to be the way they are. I must sit still if I want to see Your deliverance.

It’s now 6:44 am. Indeed! I MUST sit still. I haven’t got the slightest about what’s happening with me. Nor have I the slightest about what’s happening in my world.

Definitely? My Eyes Are Set On You. The Human Element? I Now Understand It.

Whether the human element recognizes You in me or not? You are in perfect control of the human element

Me? I am human. You are in control of every minute detail of my life. Your children? My children and brothers and sisters.

Father’s Wisdom Prevails In My Life ….?

I continue to find myself so full of laughter, compassion, immense undying love for all my deserters and children and brothers and sisters!

Whatever happens between them and myself? Once I get over my shock? I continue to hear:

“Think like I think, respond! Reason with your brother et all. Reason with the wisdom I have instilled within your being.”

So, That’s What I Do. Then? The Vicious Circle! Shucks!….?

I get bent out of shape because I don’t get standing ovation from mine? O dear! What a tricky thing this carnal self of mine is!

Nay! I Am Human, But! No Need To Act Like The Wicked Human That I Am ….?

What I write? What I say? What I do? It’s all from the innocent child’s heart my Father gifted to me. It ALL comes from my Father’s heart not from my wicked human self.

Unbelievable! ….?

It’s unbelievable the pickles I get myself into from telling ALL people—female, male, young or old, “I love you! Give me a hug!” Never thinking of how it sounds.

The Shock Of My Life ….?

It was not until I came to these parts of the world that I got the shock of how people takes the famous 3 letters word, I LOVE YOU. Can you believe it, dear Reader?

The first instruction given to me when I arrived to these parts of the world? “Do not tell these men, ‘I love you’ for they take it you mean you want to go to bed with them.”

What? That Was A Shock Of Shocks, But!

An even worse shock? NO HUGS! Not even shaking hands. Do not touch the male element at all.

Even the women. If it is a friend? You kiss on their left and right cheek. If it is a fond friend? You kiss two or three times, but! Men?

It’s Totally Amusing To Me ….?

If we are visiting in their parlor and the husband or brother appears and announces a male visitor? The woman quickly get up and leave the room—they run for cover!

I remain in the room not knowing what’s happening because I don’t speak the language. Immediately, the male visitors appear with their respectful greetings.

I Am Ignored Like I Am Not There At All ….?

I watch. They pretty much ignore my presence. They simply go on with whatever their visit is about. Later on? I’m instructed. I do not have to run for cover. I am exempt. Phew!

The Tradition Must Be Kept ….?

If the woman goes to the roof or in any public place? She MUST cover her head least a man sees her uncovered head and takes her for a bad woman.

Of course, all that is changing. The older woman are having a time to get their young daughters to stick to the tradition, so? They tell them all kind of incentives for them to do so.

The Television ….?

Unfortunately? The television industry is prevailing over any such traditions. The young girls go now with ripped tight fitting jeans and Western style fashions in addition to the head cover. Beats the world out of old fashion me!

Anyhow? Coming To My Bout With The Human Element ….?

My Father’s mercy for me! He knows me like a book. I am His little girl. I amuse Him. Yes, I do, but!

The human element? They do not—better yet? They CANNOT understand nor accept my reality as my Father’s little girl. For the most? They think such to be nonsense! So I been told.

Regardless! I am what I am by my Father’s design and purpose for my birth and life in these earthly grounds. Here lately?

No More Begging For Human Approval.

No more begging for standing ovation. No more regard for whatever my carnal mind and heart can come up against my little girl’s reality in the Presence of my Loving Father.

Father’s Love And Wisdom Prevails In My Heart And Mind. I Think Like He Thinks ….?

I’m going on. Father’s love and wisdom prevails. In my heart there rings a melody of Father’s love for all. No problem anymore. I think as my Father thinks. I’m going on!

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.

The Reasons Why One Should Give Up Thinking. WHAT? See? There Goes One Reason. Thinking Gets One In The WHAT? Wagon Down Pat.

Journal—An Ongoing Dialog Between thiaBasilia And Master Yahuwah/Yahushua. …

Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 8:30 am.

Inquiring minds? Forever the question, “What came first? The chicken or the egg?” Who cares?

O my Father! I haven’t got the slightest how to get out of this mood that I am in. To realize one’s deficiencies; one’s inabilities? It’s enough for a bad mood!

What’s the most depressing deficiency that troubles me?

That’s just it! I don’t even know what is it that troubles me, my Father? Perhaps the inability to let go of the insidious self-consciousness always lurking around no matter what I say or do!

No matter how certain I am? I can’t rid myself of the after the fact effect. I can’t get rid of that ‘humanly perfect’ concept. I can’t get rid of that insidious fear of repercussion.

Am I alone in this train of thought?

Perhaps that’s the human trend that humans so cleverly hide. Perhaps I’m opening a can of worms. Those hidden worms eating us up unaware.

Perhaps it’s You, my Father, the One opening that can of squirmy varmints eating me up unaware. Hum! Now I’m getting hot in the finding game, am I not, my Father?

O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart? Indeed! I have separated you to cleanse you with the experience of My written words. For what purpose? That you might be set-apart and faultless. That you might be in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things at My return.

Father? The Organized Church troubles me.

O my Beloved Father, You compel me to look around all the evil going on. I look around. I see the Organized Church as the greatest stumbling block for a closer relationship with You.

Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 5:28 am.

What now, O my Father? Your plan of restoration consumes my being.

Your Presence within my being compels me in the Oneness with Your Being. Sunning myself on the roof I see luscious gardens. I see happy faces taking care of those garden. I hear sweet loving songs.

The disgusting clutter in the present roofs? The screeching noise that goes by the name of music now? The crying babies. The disturbing angry voices? All gone!

Even now while we are still breathing the polluted air on these earthly grounds?

Even now Your plan of restoration is in effect. You have dried my tears away. You have restored me. In Your Presence You keep me aloof from all evil no matter any and all circumstances of glee or gloom.

Yes, You compel me to look around and be astonished at what goes on in this insanity ridden world.

I look around. I am astonished. Multitude of young people obsessed with the knowledge from the Tree of Good and Evil, but! Not a clue of what they do.

Multitude of parents obsessed with the raising of super knowledgeable children to rule the future in this world.

Behold the Great Fallen Away!

Right now as I look around all that goes on with young and old? I am astonished! The written words are coming to pass exactly as those are written, but!

What is it that troubles me with what I see? All this NOT so new thing with positive thinking and success, success, success.

Goodness sake! I am a member of Success Inspirers World Organization, and? Am I against SUCCESS? How that figures, O my Father? How that figures?

It figures in My written words, My child. I have planted you in this organization of My most selected children for you to herald those written words to them, why?

To prevent My most elected children from the great fallen away. You see, My child, your enemy is as shrew beyond your wildest imagination.

The enemy is no longer working on injecting doubt into your heart as to My intentions to forbid you to eat from that tree. No. That has already taken place.

So what is the enemy’s agenda now? To make of you a super human—full to the brim with the knowledge of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ quite capable to be your own ‘god’.

What for is there a need to depend on Me if you can depend on your own self, but! That is something not quite visible because of the camouflage of good and beautiful.

The New Age movement of positive thinking with all its branches? Is nothing else but tinsels instead of gold.

Even so, the GOLD of My Presence is now shinning forth from the heart of My selected witnesses. The experience of My written words?

That’s My work in the heart of My witnesses. That’s what makes My Presence shine forth as pure GOLD from the hearts of my selected vessels.

Furthermore? My selected vessels are not called to ‘teach’ or to ‘minister’ or to ‘police’ and apply those words as they see fit to do so. NAY!

My selected vessels only task is to refrain from doing any of that by the power of their mind. The written words CANNOT be taught by the power of the human mind.

It’s My Spirit Who gives LIFE to those words, but! The human mind is set to interpret and misconstrue My written words.

Therefore? My reason to empower you to give up the dependence in the human mind and heart both yours as well as any other human’s mind and heart.

My reason for planting you in the midst of My children in this institution? You are to share the experience of the words I have made alive in your heart.

Yahushua, Founder and Perfecter of Our Faith

THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,

Looking away [from all that will distract] to Yahushua, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of the Almighty.

What Sin?

What is the sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us? The sin of unbelief. We all brag about our beliefs, about our faith, but!

In real life? The Universities. The Doctors. The ‘Holy Ones’. The Worldly Famous. The Work of our hands? That’s the gist of our beliefs. That’s what we live by. That’s what is preached!

No kidding. I know the drill only too well, but! The power and wisdom from our Loving Father/Creator. He sent me a WITNESS. He turned me around, and? I saw!

What did I see?

The same thing the Father/Creator is now showing to all who has ears to hear and eyes to see. He showed me the utter arrogance of MY KNOWLEDGE!

I thought I knew Him when? I knew nothing period. Nothing about Him at all. Nothing about life. I was an educated fool!

O well? That’s my two cents to make the point of this writing. What am I to do right now?

Whether is liked or not? I am to proclaim to SIWO and the whole world, the TRUTH of the evil of what the world has programmed us to do on this SUCCESS thing. It’s written,

2Timothy 4:1-4

I CHARGE [you] in the presence of the Almighty and of Messiah Yahushua, Who is to judge the living and the dead, and by (in the light of) His coming and His kingdom:

Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.

For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold,

And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions.

Dear Reader, none of us wish to hear such strong words. We are at the point that we only want to hear compliments and words of encouragement, but!

It’s imperative that we take these words, bitter as they are, in the same way we would take the most distasteful medication to heal our bodies.

NO! I am not against SUCCESS. I am for SUCCESS in hearing and understanding the intent of our Creator for creating us. He created us for 3 reasons:

  1. To love Him.
  2. To be loved by Him.
  3. Your Cherish Family O Mighty One? Forever To be!

Heavenly ointment to heal our wounded souls

To that end? We work day and night to accomplish His plan of restoration to the original intent for our creation.

Those words are the heavenly ointment to heal our wounded souls. Wounded by the lack of Knowledge of His loving ways.

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂

These are days of much reflection for me ….?

Yes, indeed! You are with me whether gloom or glee! Even so? The moments of gloom multiply. The moments of glee? So far in between they happen to fly by and by.
These are days of much reflection for me as it is for a certain few. Yes, it’s a comfort to find those few, but! For the most?

This is a lonely road in the trails of this insane world ….?

Even so, it is by choice that anyone travels in it. I made my choice. I chose to follow Yahushua. No regrets. How did I so chose?

By the power of my Father’s love and wisdom from on high. Of my own power? Impossible. Unless the Father calls? No one can come to the SON.

What it means to live in self-righteousness ….?

The hardest I tried to follow Yahushua? The farthest away from Him I lived. Yes, to live in self-righteousness is to live far from Yahushua, but!
A self-righteous life is what all human beings with no exceptions are programmed to live. Eve n so? Father knows all about it.
It’s now 5:14 pm. I slept from 1:31 pm to 3:39 pm. Was led to go directly to my inbox. There I was led to click on, https://adewumipeterblog.wordpress.com/2018/03/19/gods-generals-are-you-a-general-in-your-field/.

And my heart constricted big time! ….?

My Brother Peter is only expressing the staunch belief and standard for all Ministers leaders of the Flock.
I wanted to cry, but! Instead? Father’s wisdom prevail. I found myself so full of laughter, compassion, immense undying love for all my deserters et all!
I got over my shock. I heard: “Think like I think, respond! Reason with your brother et all. Reason with the wisdom I have instilled within your being.” I obeyed. I wrote:

I do not debate or tell anybody what to do or not to do. I share what Father is doing with me.
John was right.
We are wrong.
We call evil good.
We call good evil.
All those so called ‘Ministries’ are not in the will of our Father.
We do not know our Father/Creator or His ways.
We are not going to any ‘Heaven’.
The Kingdom of heaven is in our hearts, but! We take it for granted with our carnal minds.
The Kingdom of Heaven shall be established in Jerusalem here on earth like it is in heaven.
These things The Almighty Spirit of our Creator is now revealing to us. To me personally? Quote:
“My children think, act, live by what they know, but! My children do not ‘know’ Me. In the same way? You just realized it’s the same about you and your children and friends.

Your children and friends do not know you, but! Regardless? You have not for one instance stopped loving them.
Even more so? You realize they as well love you despite the lack of knowledge on either end.
Likewise? It’s between My children and My Being. Only difference? I know it all, but! I only let you know so much as you need to know at any given time, and?
Today? This Little Portion Of My Knowledge? Hit You Like A Bomb! Why?
Because it is a bomb—THE BOMB that completely destroyed all traces of evil murdering thoughts about your children et all.
Go On My Child! Now You Thinking Like I Think ….?”
Unless the Father/Creator does the work within each one of us personally? We labor in vain.
Yes, thank our Father for the great workers. Those workers did not mean for us to PRAISE THEM! They all directed us to our Father/Creator Yahuwah/Yahushua.
Unfortunately? We follow man not our Father/Creator. We have made a ‘God’ of our Father/Creator, but!
That’s all coming to an end now. Behold! The Power of love and wisdom from on high. It never fails. It always avails.
Therefore? O well! Our paths have crossed. The plan of restoration to the original intent for our creation is now in effect.
To Love.
To Be Loved.
Your Cherish Family O Mighty One? Forever To be!
We have been saved, but! We, liken to the Galatians & the Corinthians have remained CARNAL depending in our carnal mind knowledge.
BUT! No Problem. Our Father is STILL in control of it ALL!
HE IS BRINGING US ALL TO THE FIRST & MOST IMPORTANT OF THE COMMANDMENTS! Hahaha! HalleluYah.
Much love, thiaBasilia. 🙂

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂

What’s For You Today? To Find Out What’s For My Day! How’s That For Rumbustiousness ….?

Journal—An Ongoing Dialog Between thiaBasilia And Master Yahuwah/Yahushua. …

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 8:35 am.

Ha! What’s for my day? Ah! My Father—O Father of mine? You are leading all the way! Why have I not been posting since the last post?

I been busy following You lead to optimize, but! You know why I am doing that. You know me like a book. You led me to post that thing about Retribution, and, my readers? Half gone!

Been optimizing yes, but why not taking a few minutes to post some of the multitude of words You given to me in the last few days?

Aha! Just now? You done drop the bomb in my human mind! That’s enough to sober me up. To think like You think. What?

To Think Like You Think ….. ? Hold It Right There! ….No One Thinks Like YOU?

That’s the bomb Father dropped on my dizzy human thinking. O WELL! I used to have several illustrious ‘Men of The Cloth’ reading and following these lines I record daily, but!

They done quit me! Why? For making statements like that. You know all about it, my Father, but You insist in compelling me to make such statements.

Despite the cost to my readership? I must obey You. I must write what You lead me to write whether that’s for the liking or not liking of the readers of these lines. Why?

Ah! Great News! They’ll be back. How do I know that? Father revealed that to me as it’s written by His finger in the pages of the BOOK.

The Truth About Me? Probably Why The Readers Quit Me? The Truth Is ….?

I do not ‘know’ ANYTHING, but! I sound like a ‘know it all’. Pitiful me. Honest to goodness! Only the Father/Creator of our beings knows IT ALL!

I sound like a ‘know it all’ to be funny, but! People takes me seriously and? Stay away from my way! Hahaha! If they see me coming? They quickly hide themselves until I pass their way.

Full Of Laughter, Compassion, Immense Undying Love For All My Deserters!

You know what? This morning? Just a moment ago? I found myself so full of laughter, compassion, immense undying love for all my deserters!

I heard, ‘Now you thinking like Me.’ What? Think like You? What You talking about? How or what You think?

What’s The Core Of The Humongous Horrendous State And Condition Of The Human Being Despite All Knowledge Both Secular And Spiritual.

O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart? My children pride themselves on their knowledge. Moreover? My children pride themselves on acquiring the highest degree of knowledge.

Whatever it’s secular or spiritual knowledge? My children’s aim is to show themselves approved and recognized.

My children’s life struggle is to achieve and succeed. Should they fail to achieve and succeed?

That’s the core of the humongous horrendous state and condition of the human being despite all knowledge both secular and spiritual.

And You Laughing About It?

So am I, My child. So am I. Why? Because, I know what you just realized a moment ago. What would that be?

My children think, act, live by what they know, but! My children do not ‘know’ Me. In the same way? You just realized it’s the same about you and your children and friends.

Your children and friends do not know you, but! Regardless? You have not for one instance stopped loving them.

Even more so? You realize they as well love you despite the lack of knowledge on either end.

Likewise? It’s between My children and My Being. Only difference? I know it all, but! I only let you know so much as you need to know at any given time, and?

Today? This Little Portion Of My Knowledge? Hit You Like A Bomb! Why?

Because it is a bomb—THE BOMB that completely destroyed all traces of evil murdering thoughts about your children et all.

Go On My Child! Now You Thinking Like I Think ….?

Rejoice forever more! No matter what evil comes your way now, whether from within or without? My power is in your hands to overcome it all!

Hey! Hey! Hey! No more ill thinking because my brother Ngobesing? O well, whatever he is up to or not up to? I love him and he loves me—that’s not ‘romantic’ love—hey away with evil thinking! Yes! I love him and you dear Reader with the love of my Yah. Hahaha! HalleluYah!

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.

Retribution? No Question About It …. ?

We have come the full circle. Retribution is due to whomever is due, but! For the chosen? The Plan Of Restoration To The Original Intent For Our Creation Is In Effect —To Love. To Be Loved. Your Cherish Family O Mighty One? Forever To be!

Journal—An Ongoing Dialog Between thiaBasilia And Master Yahuwah/Yahushua. …

Things much ignored by the public …. ?

Indeed! There is retribution for all wrongs committed, but! It is not up to us to retaliate. Vengeance is Mine says the Father/Creator of our beings.

Why bring this matter up right now? Well, the things that the Spirit of my Father within me reveals to me while I sleep are things much ignored by the public.

The public seems to be oblivious to all mention of an end coming to the present earth. So many false alarms have rang in the ears of the public that by now?

All such alarms are passé, people are anesthetized, just like the enemy forces planned for it to be, but! No matter what it looks like? The Father/Creator is in control of it all.

Indeed! The Father/Creator is in control of it all …. ?

So? Despite my own doubts and fears about what it comes to me to write about? The Spirit of my Father/Creator continues to lead me ahead to write, publish, and optimize.

He is doing the rest. He knows what I think. He knows my words before I pronounce them. How He knows such. Ah! It just dawns on me!

He knows all about my thoughts because He is the one ingraining those thoughts and those words in my mind. How and why?

Simple. To deprogram my mind …. ?

My mind just like all human minds have been programmed to think contrary to the truth of our existence, but! The Father/Creator’s unfathomable wisdom.

On that Wisdom I rest for the Best …. ?

Alright! My Father knows that the question about the restoration of this area came about today as I watched videos on hot houses, organic gardens, and?

I saw the amazing progress some companies have accomplished in the USA building hot houses and planting the gardens just like Father has shown to me for this area.

OOO! How did I take it all …. ?

Now? To make myself clear. The written words in what is commonly known as the Bible? Those written words are coming to pass exactly as those are written.

With a few exceptions? All religious doctrines. All scholarly interpretations of those written words? Totally worthless. Only good to lead the Father/Creator’s children away in disarray.

Multitudes, multitudes are now in the valley of decision not knowing which way to turn, but! The Father/Creator knows each one individually in that multitude, and?

He is now reaching out to each individual soul …. ?

Thus, this information is going forth. To get back to the title ‘Retribution’. Ha! First? He quickens certain Scriptures for me to see His plan to restore us.

Then? He leads me to read about the restoration of this Edomites land where now I am. Next? I read about the destruction of the Edomite race, and?

The gathering of His children in this area while He, the Creator destroys the rest of the earth. Next? He leads me to watch the videos about my dream gardens already created in the USA. AND!

The big question pops into my mind …. ?

Are not those gardens to be created in this area, my Father? As it is right now? We are millions behind accomplishing such amazing results as those companies have accomplished.

What gives, my Father? Again, am I far off in left field with all those dreams and visions I been writing about? What’s my Father’s answer?

One word. “Retribution” …. ?

What threw me into questioning what Father gives me to write? Several things that are happening. things that are already in the Father’s plan for our good. Things I shouldn’t be concerned about.

  1. The reluctance of my people to visit Jordan.
  2. The silence.
  3. The lack of response.
  4. The lack of change in my people’s behavior.

Those things are in my mind but! I brush them aside, until? I see the prosperity that is promised to me given to others, and?

My mind spiral downwards! If only momentarily  ….?

For that one word, “Retribution”? Brings me to the reality of my Father’s ways, and? Power to sit still. Power to wait. Encouragement. Peace. Joy. Joy inexplicable returns to my soul.

Later! I need sleep. It’s now Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 2:38 am.

I woke up around 6 am. Fixing me some eats and drinks. Now? Ready to continue with the matter of retribution.

Retribution from who or whom? The answer …. ?

The Edomites! They denied food and water to the passing Israelites on the way to the land, and? Time now for retribution.

The Edomites are the descendants from Esau, hateful twin brother of Jacob/Israel. From the womb there was war between the brothers, but!

Esau was destined for destruction from the beginning because of his carnal evil nature. How all of this comes into play now?

I am not a ‘Bible Scholar, but! …. ?

I can honestly say that I have never been inclined to apply myself to study these matters. My learning curve is just not there.

I have never been able to even to memorize one verse of Scripture. I must refer to the online versions of the commonly called ‘Bible’ to check all that the Spirit leads me to check.

In other words? I am not a ‘Bible’ scholar nor have done extensive research on these matters, but! I can quote and correctly apply any Scripture in that Book at any given time.

How I do it? I don’t know. It just comes to me. Whatever comes to me? I check with the written words, and? Astonishment!

Ah! So that’s what You mean! Now I understand. Then I go on to the next matter …. ?

Right now? My dilemma triggered by watching those videos on the hot houses and gardens. It’s about the situation whether or not Father is the Author of the words I have written so far.

Whether or not His promises are for real or not …. ?

My question? Is this area to be restored or is it to be destroyed with the rest of the earth as it is now? The answer?

Father sent me to re-read Yedidah’s account of the matter. This account, to my knowledge, is by far the only accurate present account of this matter revealed to Yedidah

Who is Yedidah and how Father connected and disconnected me from Yedidah? That’s another intricate story, but! As I read her article on,

EDOM, PETRA AND THE REGATHERING AND PRESERVATION OF ALL THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL IN THE LAST DAYS

 

Amazing! My dilemma? Gone forever! I see now a more clear picture of the future of this deprived area in the skirts of Amman, Jordan.

As I sit under the early morning shining sun on the roof this wonderful apartment my Father has gifted to me?

I vision all roofs now crowded with disgusting clutter in a totally different view. As far as my eyes can reach I see now renovated buildings.

I see luscious vegetables and flowers gardens to my delight. I see playing children in safe areas suited for their ages. I see joyful faces occupied in the keeping of the gardens, and?

My being soars high! Up and up to the Presence of my Master to be alone with Him. Alone and aloof from all distractions in gloom or glee! Father? In silence I worship Thee.

I thank You, my Father for my and Ahmad’s restored health, but most of all? I thank You for Your victory, Your favor, Your love, Your peace, Your joy, and Your matchless, unbroken companionship!

Dear Reader, what will I post today? Perhaps the links to the three posts written since I posted last. I’ll see what Father leads me to do as the day advances.

I have to figure out how to insert the links or how to post them. Besides those 3 posts I have also finished Chapters 5 and 6 of The Family—A True Story.

Need to add those to the page, and? There are several neglected chores in need of my attention. Much to do, but! No rush. No pressure. Only?

Inexplicable power, freedom, confidence, certainty, assertiveness, peace, love, joy, the immensity of my Father’s victory, favor, and unbroken companionship! Here are the titles. I will post links later.

  • War? I Hear The Rumors Of Imminent War In Israel.
  • What It Means To Rest? To Really, Really Rest …. ?
  • Retribution? No Question About It …. ?

O dear Reader, I leave you with that thought in mind. Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.
