Jesus the Christ
Imagine everyone you know currently in our media being humble, really serving others and making great sacrifices. Imagine the wealthy giving all they have to others more needy, within reason. I’m not saying walk around with nothing after some earned it legitimately, I mean those that are paid millions actually living in an average home, driving a decent car and giving away most of what’s left to others that will never have the chance to earn it due to lower intellect, not being cute enough or just being born into poverty from which for most there is no way out.
I love some of the lines from current Christian music that lay it on the line about those who currently “save the trees but kill the children” also “what if the family turned to Jesus, stopped asking Oprah what to do.” Sad state of affairs but that is another blog. Today I am posting a video with some of Jesus “Greatest Hits” by video. Hope to make some others soon, maybe with a theme.
Happy Resurrection Sunday!

The secular world has borrowed and defiled many of God’s holy words and truths. Man is becoming famous for stealing the Words of God and pretending they are their own unique ideas to sell books or speak to the lost in our world. If you are knowledgeable in the Word, you will not be fooled into believing the false doctrine of others.
Many times I see just the word “Believe” on a plaque or canvas and I wonder, “Believe what?” You can believe anything but it helps to believe in the truth, always. People of the world feel foolish or simple-minded to believe in anything as simple a concept as “God.” They feel they are too intelligent and educated to be fooled into such a primitive belief. This is a world-wide belief as far back as man existed and continues today for good reason. It’s true. Is it explainable? Not really, but those of us who believe, know it.
Who can explain the spiritual truth of Faith? If you don’t have it, it does not exist for you. It is something between your heart and God and God cannot be fooled. It has to do with genuine love inside and need to humble yourself because you love and really desire God because you need Him. We all do need God but few get this because the world does it’s best to make you feel foolish in this desire by making you prideful and “empowered” within yourself.
Anyone that has even the slightest spiritual enlightenment or sensitivity knows that there is something more in our world than meets the eye. Many of us have experienced it and know there is another realm to this world that cannot be seen with the eye, but can be felt in the spirit. This is where your “good vibes” bad vibes” idea comes from and we all know this is true. Some are completely thick-skinned or oblivious to others “feelings” towards them while others pick up on that right away.
There is that feeling of peace and serenity with prayer and meditation and the unsettled or angry feelings that come with fighting and cursing. There are definite intents and intent is everything. Just like someone smiling while stabbing another in the back, literally or figuratively. Just because you are smiling does not mean you have “good vibes.” This is what many are finding out with those who currently control our mainstream media news, entertainment and governments.
The world’s art and entertainment has long been on a slippery slope of ugliness, negativity, hypocrisy, insincerity as well as perversion and downright evil. A society’s culture represents the society and right now it’s not good. Most people are basically still good, still pretty down to earth and knowledgeable BUT the media currently representing all of us does not represent us fairly or accurately for the most part because it’s only there to serve the needs of the few who control it.
Believe things are going to get better and then make it so!
You can’t be faithful to God and have an ungrateful heart. Most that don’t believe in God or do believe but choose to hate Him and try to defile Him in all that they do seem to have a childish mindset that God is like a genie that grants wishes. They don’t get what they want out of their life so blame God or think because they make bad choices and have poor impulse control that God does not exist.
The only people who can think this way are those that were not taught spiritual truth. The term is “walking in the dark.” They say ignorance is bliss but in the long run it really is death. Man will be held accountable for deliberate ignorance. God knows if you know something is wrong but choose to do it anyway or when you find something out that you know is true but try to pretend that it’s not and try to blame it on our current liberal propaganda that is obviously destroying His world. I think we were all born with certain inner knowledge, as most creatures, of what to do and what not to do. It is called instinct. Since man is very selfish by nature because of that survival instinct, it is important to temper this selfishness with civility or spiritual training or any kind of civilization would be quite impossible. Sometimes it truly looks like many are completely brainwashed by the low-grade movies churned out by the greedy and depraved. Just cause you watch it on a screen, does not make it real life or anything worth imitating. Man is very easily influenced by others, that’s how we learn. It’s shameful that most of any entertainment that exists in America has so much gratuitous sex and violence instead of instilling values and reinforcing the positive qualities of mankind.
People seem to forget, that much like our earth is being mindlessly trashed, if we are not mindful of how we are raising human beings and treating one another, there could come a point of no return for everything. We are not guaranteed tomorrow, we are not guaranteed the use of this earth, especially if we don’t take care of it. The same goes for others in our lives that are not treated with the love and kindness that Jesus spoke of. This is exactly why He is the truth, the life and the only way.
So yes, I consider myself faithful. How could I not be faithful to someone who loved me enough to die for me?
God’s Children know the victory is already theirs. Never give up, never surrender because we all know that the devil fights you the hardest when he feels you are a worthy adversary!
You be the judge.
I have always called rainbows God’s promise for as long as I can remember. The picture you see is from a batch of photos to be processed the morning of the nations worse blackout in the summer of 2003. August 14th to be exact. I dropped off about 10 rolls of film to be developed on my way to work that morning, only to have all the power go out in our area later that day. I started wondering what condition my film might be in because of this. Anyone who knows anything about processing film knows that timing is crucial or the film is ruined. I prayed that my film did not get damaged but had to wait for days to find out because of the length the power outage lasted in my area.
All my pictures appeared to be ok as I began to examine them one by one. I started going through them to find one large stain on a picture and found the negative was stained from chemical residue. It appeared to me to be the figure of a king of olden times. Actually like the times when Christ lived. It appears to be a man with beard and crown in a robe holding a staff. The image was created during a really odd manifestation of “power”, man literally lost his. As a child of God, just sayin’.
In the first picture I have only sharpened this image and cropped it so you can see what I’m referring to. The second picture I negatived the image and enhanced the lines.
