A STEADY FAITH!!



The world is changing, all the time, people change, even language changes as time passes, but the one thing that should remain steady and consistent, is faith. Faith in good, faith in righteousness and justice, faith in what is right.


What is faith? Faith is a healthy belief in something or someone, a healthy expectation that good will come from it; it can be anything, tangible or intangible. Faith is rooted in belief, that means that in order for you to have faith in something or someone, you first need to believe in that thing, seen or unseen. You need to believe that it can or will succeed. Take yourself; you have faith in yourself, in other words: YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Now for you to accomplish anything of value in life, some effort on your part will be required, and you will need to have faith in yourself. You will need to believe in yourself and your ability to succeed. The stronger your belief in yourself and your own God-given abilities, the stronger your faith,  and the stronger your faith, the stronger your will to succeed. You see friends, the world is constantly changing, but your faith needs to stay steady. That means, that no matter how difficult or challenging things become, your belief in yourself or that which you expect good from, needs to stay consistent. Your faith can not ride the roller-coaster ride of change with the world, your faith can’t rush up and down like a yo-yo, you need to make your mind up, that you believe.


God has believed in you from the very beginning, God gave you the ability to succeed. God’s belief in you is steady, because God knows that you can succeed, but this is your faith I am talking about. It won’t hurt though, to understand faith from the perspective of God. True faith is not shaken when the world is shaking, true faith does not move or transform with the times, true faith stays the same. True faith is not rooted in speculation; true faith is rooted in fact. That means that whatever thing you have faith in, you must have a clear understanding that it can deliver what you expect from it. There is really no point in believing that a stone will present you with a loaf of bread, if the stone does not have the ability to deliver or produce a loaf of bread. Faith is not about stupidity, faith is about common-sense and a healthy mind set.


There are lots of people who choose to reject the idea of a Creator of earth, mankind and everything on earth. With that choice to reject the idea of a Creator, there needs to be a healthy, clear and sensible explanation for the existence of earth, mankind and everything else. There needs to be a reason why everything in their complexities exist and why these things seem to be maintained by something or someone. Now, people speculate that there is no Creator and that all these things were an accident, a very orderly accident. If that is true, then considering science, there must be a clear trail of the accident. In other words, if you accidentally knock a glass half full of milk off of a table, then all the contents, along with the pieces of the glass, will lie scattered all across the floor. If you want to know what the original conditions of the glass and milk were, you will need to look at the evidence in front of you, the scattered glass and milk, lying scattered on the floor. If you can do that, then you should be able to replicate the original condition of the glass and milk, while they were still intact on the table. You can then test your theory and look at the evidence or outcome of your test. That will prove whether your assumptions are accurate, or not. That can be applied to the idea of people who believe that the existence of earth and everything else, can be attributed to a single incident, which according to their “theories”, took place and caused the existence of all living things, as it is known today. If their assumptions and theories are true then they should be able to retrace the steps of the big bang theory, to the way things were before the big accident. All the evidence should be there in massive amounts and thus, that should be easy to replicate in small labs, they just need to recreate the original conditions and substances which caused the big bang, very do-able, if their assumptions were true.


The faith in a Creator (or Creators) is fairly easy to defend, because all the evidence speaks for itself. There are an abundance of living beings on earth, which can both be seen and touched, and no one among them that can be seen or touched is responsible for or claiming to be the source of their existence. For those with common sense, it is clear and really obvious, that some other force or energy must have been and continues to be, responsible for the existence of mankind, the earth and everything in it. Now there are a lot of anti-creationists claiming, that just because there is no visible Creator that it automatically translates: “there is not a Creator”, which is really stupid. Stupid, because, if any one walks up to a car and you do not find the manufacturer of the vehicle, you do not simply conclude that there is no manufacturer just because of the absence of a manufacturer, claiming that the car invented itself through some accident. To any person with common sense that would be stupid to assume, because the mere absence of a visible manufacturer of the vehicle, is not proof that there was no creator of the vehicle. That’s absurd. The other point of course, is that, the presence of the Creators of mankind and the earth and everything else, is not absent. There is a very real and tangible presence of the Creators of the planet and its inhabitants. There is the Word of the Creators, called the Word of God, and clear guidance, commands and instructions are being given through these visible Words, through tangible people. Commands and instructions, which when tested, prove to be hugely beneficial to mankind. There are tangible consequences for those people who choose to reject the visible counsel and commands of the Creators, undeniable consequences. I can also refer to the tangible Presence of God, or the Creators of earth and mankind, which is physical. Let me explain: there is the Spirit of God, which is more like a wind than a Being with a physical body. The Spirit of God, which is the Presence of God in Spirit, can be seen, if God chooses to show you The Spirit, and The Spirit of God can also Touch your physical body, or change the atmosphere around your body, in a room, house, building or land. Think of it this way, you have a friend with a physical body and your friend touches your body with their hand. When your visible friend touches your body, you can both feel the touch and you can see the hand. The Spirit of God is just like your visible friend, except, The Spirit of God is invisible and the body of The Spirit is not as limited as your human friend’s body. The Body of The Spirit of God is like a Blanket, that can wrap itself around your entire physical body and you can feel the warmth and the Presence, but you cannot see it, although you know it is there. The Spirit of God can touch an arm or a leg, your chest or your head, and you will feel a tangible touch, but you won’t see anything. You can even sense the Presence of God’s Spirit in a room or around you, through your physical senses, heat or warmth, tangible sensations on your physical body, or even when you are in need of healing in your body, the same Spirit can heal that particular part of your body, and you can feel that physical working or presence of God’s Spirit.


Friends faith in God is not a mere belief in some fairy tale or some fictional story or idea, God or The Creators of mankind, are real. It is right of you to believe in a Creator, and it is right of you to expect good from your Creators. Have a steady unshaken faith, a steady unshaken persuasion, that there is a Creator. Do not adjust your faith to the changes of the world; let your faith stand firm in the face of the change.

“My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;” (Psalm 57:7 NIV)


‘“The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good.”’ (Psalm 53:1)


“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from Your Presence or take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.” (Psalm 51:10-12)

A CHANGING WORLD!!




We all know (or most of us know) that we are living in a changing world. Earth is a place where change is constant; things are changing all the time. The nature of the planet is revealed through its seasons, through its oceans and through its inhabitants. Nothing stays the same; there are always new and fresh changes on the horizon.

With each new season, a fresh face appears, the appearance of the earth changes, and the inhabitants are moved to accommodate the new season, the flowers fade or start to bloom, depending on the season; clothes are changed, and people move indoors or outdoors, and windows are opened or closed, to adjust to changing weather. For the people of the old time, a thousand or so years ago, that would’ve been it, but the people of the current timeline, are expecting other things to change as well. Life is a little (or a lot) more complicated for people, there are new technologies to deal with, fresh gadgets to appear, things which can change the day-to-day realities of people, in a wink of an eye.
In the old times, people had to travel weeks or even months, to meet with their friends and relatives, all they had, were animals to carry them and their belongings. Nowadays, all people need are a few dollars and a car, to meet with relatives who live a thousand miles away, and they will meet with them, not in weeks or months, but in a matter of hours. If they have a plane ticket, they can move across half the earth in less than a day, in the old times, it would’ve taken them weeks or months to complete their journey. These are the types of changes people are being presented with today, tomorrow, even that might change, and be primitive to some future generation, because things just keeps changing.


For a lot, or the vast majority of people on planet earth, these changes happen, and sometimes they happen so quick, that what is celebrated as new, great and wonderful today, is about to be called old, as soon as tomorrow. There is acceleration; a quickening to the changes on earth, the speed of change on earth has increased greatly. People are increasing more and more, and faster and faster; the seasons are becoming more and more severe, heat and cold, wind and rain; technological advances are becoming swifter and swifter, and the speed at which change is taking place, has increased significantly. It is like an athlete, running the last 100 metres of a 10 mile race, speeding towards the finishing line, towards a rewarding climax. All these changes are indicative of the earth itself, rushing toward a climax, towards a finish, a grand finish! We all know, that when an athlete finishes a race, that there is a time of rest and refreshing, a time to relax, and allowing the muscles and body, to have some peace, and well-deserved rest.

There is such a time for the earth, a time of rest and refreshing, a time for peace, and a well-deserved rest, on the horizon. Just like an athlete is dashing towards the finishing line, in that last 100 metres of a ten mile race, to a time of rest and peace, so the earth is dashing towards a time for rest and peace. Friends, there is peace ahead, there is rest ahead, rest for the earth from all its toil and hardship, a time for tranquility, and quietness.


The earth is changing at a faster pace, and it is like knowledge, and everything else, are flooding the earth’s inhabitants; new, and newer things, arrive here every day! It is like you hardly opened yesterday’s box of new things, and today’s new things are already delivered! Change is constant, like there is an endless fountain of change, flowing and just flowing, and not just the same old change, but new change! What is God telling the world? Is the world even getting the message?

“This is what God the LORD says ̶ I am the LORD; that is My name!

See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.” (Isaiah 42 NIV)


“Justice will dwell in the desert and righteousness live in the fertile field. The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence for ever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling-places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. How blessed you will be.” (Isaiah 32:16-20)

This is the peace the earth is rushing for, the quietness and tranquility, for the children of Light.

‘“Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. In your thoughts you will ponder the former terror: “Where is that chief officer? Where is the one who took the revenue? Where is the officer in charge of the towers?” You will see those arrogant people no more, those people of an obscure speech, with their strange, incomprehensible tongue.

For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is He Who will save us. No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”; and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.”’  (Isaiah 33:17-24)

“Now will I arise,” says the LORD. “Now will I be exalted.” (Isaiah 33:10)

STOP RACISM!!



The race issue is a very old issue, it is nothing new on earth when it comes to this age of people, racism is here and some people want to keep it here. If you live anywhere on earth, where there are people with different skin colours and hair textures, and distinctively different physical appearances, there you will find the ugly head of racism. Racism is ugly, harmful and destructive; if there is any doubt in anyone’s heart about the impact of racism, on those who are the victims of racial-discrimination, then you can go and examine history, and you can also speak to those who know they are being ill-treated because of their God-given-skin-colour.


Yes, just as God created mankind, God is the reason why there are so many humans with different skin colours and different physical appearances. All people of every skin colour and physical appearance, are all part of the same human family, and God, because God likes variety, gave a variety of colours to humans, some are pink, some are yellow, some are brown, some are pale, some are reddish, some are bordering on black, but all are human.  There is beauty in every one of these variety of colours amongst humans. The idiot and the child of satan, will hate and discriminate, revealing the ugliness of their own heart, but they will never succeed in destroying the Truth: All humans, everywhere, regardless of their skin colour or hair texture and eye colour, are equal, equal before God, and equal before Righteousness and True Justice (not man-made justice, Real Justice). If you are remotely familiar with the history of this age of humans, you will know of the extreme suffering and misery, humans subjected their own flesh and blood to, just because of their God-given skin colour. Not because they were sinners or killers, or rapists or evil, but because the colour of their skins were different. People were killed, murdered and oppressed, not so long ago, because of the colour of their skin, and the people who condone such behaviour and approve of such evils, do not want to talk about those wrongs. They want to pretend that such things never ever happened, even though, just a few decades ago, these things were still very prevalent, right here on earth. These things must be talked about, they need to be spoken of, and the wickedness of the actions of those who were guilty of murdering or hating a man, a woman or a child, for the colour of their skin, should be pointed out. Hating a man, a woman or a child, because their skin colour is different from yours, is evil, it will never be right. Ill-treating or discriminating against someone, because they are from a different “skin-colour group,” according to you, is evil and wrong. God created all skin colours and they are all God’s creation, and all are human and equal, in the sight of Righteousness.


How do you treat people who are a little or a lot darker, or a little or a lot lighter in their skin colour, than you are? Do you treat them as your equal? Do you treat them with the same kindness you expect to be treated with by them, or are you better or less than them? What would your response be, if a human with a lighter or darker skin colour than your own, were to love your child, and your child loved them back, romantically? What would you do, if your child said that they wanted to marry that differently-coloured human being? Will you tell your child to leave that differently-coloured human? Will you be  a racist and discriminate against God’s creation, would you elevate yourself above what is Righteous, and look down on God’s creation, like you would on an evil dog and spit on it? You are NOT ALLOWED to, AT ANYTIME, mistreat anybody, just because of the colour of their skin, if you do, you are condemned to perish.

 The LORD knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. (Psalm 1:6)
You see friend, racist people never treat those they see as less than them, as their equal, they never see a girl as just a girl, they see a white girl, or a black girl, but never just a girl. I look at a female and I see just a girl, a racist look at a female and sees a black girl or a white girl, because they are racist. There is no excuse, don’t be racist.


I know a lot of people who are racist, would never openly admit that they are racist, because they know that discriminating against someone, or ill-treating anyone based on their skin colour, is widely frowned upon. So, they will never do it publicly, no, they will do it in private, among their closest friends and relatives, speaking ill of people with different skin colours, calling them all kinds of names, which they will never utter in public, because they are cowards. Racists are not strong people, no they are weak, they are wimps, history will tell you, as well as present realities. They will never discriminate against a people who are strong enough to deal with their discrimination, and their obvious mean and evil behaviour, no, they run to the weak, with weapons in hand, because they themselves acknowledge that they are wimps. They attack the weak and defenceless, they gather in large numbers, ganging up on one or two or a few, or they come with weapons which their victims do not have. Racists are weaklings, thieves and destroyers, never to be tolerated by any who claims to be non-racist. What can you do if your friend or relative are being racist? You can walk away, sever ties, cut them off, because they know that their behaviours are evil, and they know that you know. If you stay, they then believe that you approve of their actions and wicked behaviour. (And no, this does not mean that you have the right to divorce your husband or wife, but you can leave them.)


When I look at a man with a certain skin colour, and a woman with a skin colour different from that of the man, and they kiss each other, then I think, “Oh, they love each other.” A racist looking at the same couple, thinks, “An interracial couple.” They are not an interracial couple, they are two humans who love each other, and they are from the same race, the human race!! Let go of the white thing, the black thing, the yellow thing and every other racist thing, you are all human and all are equal in the sight of God and Righteousness. I know that a lot of people walk away from people they could have been great friends with, great companions and even husbands and wives, but because they are evil, they walked away from their blessings, and embraced an abuser and an adulterer. They then call out to God, “Oh God, why me? Why did you give me such a devil?” When in reality, you walked away from the saint God sent you, to the little devil which satan presented you with instead. There is no excuse for racism. If you make the choice, that you will not marry someone of a different skin colour, for the simple reason, that you do not like whites or blacks or those differently coloured than you, then you deserve that devil. If you are not racist then do not tolerate racism or “colour discrimination,” tell those devils who are trying to drag you into hell with them to go to hell alone.

FOR THE RACIST AND LOVERS OF FALSE GODS WHO PROMOTE RACISM:

“Now then, listen, you lover of pleasure,
    lounging in your security
and saying to yourself,
    ‘I am, and there is none besides me.
I will never be a widow
    or suffer the loss of children.’
Both of these will overtake you

    in a moment, on a single day:
    loss of children and widowhood.
They will come upon you in full measure,
    in spite of your many sorceries
    and all your potent spells.
10 You have trusted in your wickedness
    and have said, ‘No one sees me.’
Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you
    when you say to yourself,
    ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’
11 Disaster will come upon you,
    and you will not know how to conjure it away.
A calamity will fall upon you
    that you cannot ward off with a ransom;
a catastrophe you cannot foresee
    will suddenly come upon you.

12 “Keep on, then, with your magic spells
    and with your many sorceries,
    which you have laboured at since childhood.
Perhaps you will succeed,
    perhaps you will cause terror.
13 All the counsel you have received has only worn you out!
    Let your astrologers come forward,
those stargazers who make predictions month by month,
    let them save you from what is coming upon you.
14 Surely they are like stubble;
    the fire will burn them up.
They cannot even save themselves
    from the power of the flame.
These are not coals for warmth;
    this is not a fire to sit by.
15 That is all they can do for you—
    these you have laboured with
    and trafficked with since childhood.
Each of them goes on in his error;
    there is not one that can save you.”
(Isaiah 47:8-15)

“Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scoffers.

You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death,
    with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement.
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
    it cannot touch us,
for we have made a lie our refuge
    and falsehood our hiding place.”

16 So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:

I will make justice the measuring line
    and righteousness the plumb line;
hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
    and water will overflow your hiding place.
18 Your covenant with death will be annulled;

    your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand.
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
    you will be beaten down by it.
19 As often as it comes it will carry you away;
    morning after morning, by day and by night,
    it will sweep through.”
(Isaiah 28:14-19)

As for the righteous:

"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
But he delights in the LORD's instruction, and meditates in His instruction day and night.
 He will be like a tree planted by streams of water, yielding its fruit in its season, and whose leaf does not wither. He will prosper in everything he does." (Psalm 1:1-3)

A FATHER’S CARE!!



A father who takes “great” care of his children, is someone worthy of appreciation and celebration. Yeah, I know, that most men who are parents on planet earth, are not “great” fathers, hence all the chaos, but still, there are some good fathers out there. I consider, that it is cool to celebrate your dad, if he really is a good dad.


A good dad takes care of his kids, period. And he does the best he can to protect, provide for, and take great care of his offspring. A father is supposed to be the strong man in the house; he does all the things I mentioned, and he does not shy away from his responsibilities. For those who are fathers (and intend to be fathers), the most important people in your life are your children. They are yours. Your friends, even childhood friends, are not more important than your kids. They’re your kids. A good father stays with his children; he does not betray them, by elevating friendships over and above them. Friends are not more important than your kids; your kids need your presence in their lives, from the moment they’re born, until “for as long as you exist.” They not only need you to always take care of, and be there for them, they also need your counsel and guidance. There are many wolves in the world, some are plain to see, but others are wolves in sheep’s clothing. As a father, you “need” to protect your offspring from those wolves, you “need” to teach your kids how to discern good from evil. That is your job!!


From the moment when you are born as a boy, you have that “protect and take care,” awareness in yourself. It is first displayed, when you are doing all you can, to protect yourself and those you love, no matter your age, it is there from childhood. As you grow into a man and become a parent, that “protect and take care” compulsion, will drive you to be a good father (unless you ignored it all your life). That drive, will compel you to do your best to provide for, take care of and protect your kids, with all your might (unless you are lazy). You will do your best to provide a good home for your family, presenting them with the best healthy food you can source and with the best clothes (and with “best clothes” I do not mean “most expensive clothes,” I mean clothes of fairly good quality, to keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer).


As a good father you will educate your children, show them the difference between bad and good, because you must. Just like you would teach them, that touching a hot stove can burn them, you will instill a love for Truth in them, by not being a liar yourself. You will stand guard over the content of their character, as they grow up, through using your parental authority and presence in their lives, to keep wrong, harmful, and bad influences, away from them. That includes bad friends, evil movies, harmful substances and evil behaviour. You will “know” where your kids are, every moment of their lives, even if you are at work, you will take great care to ensure, that they are in a very safe and secure environment, with people you trust. You are the protector, protect.


As a good father you will trust your children, because they are your children, you will believe them. And what if they lie to you? Then you will train them to speak the truth and to never lie to you, they are your children. You will screen their friends, because you are their parent and you know more, you will teach them to trust your judgment, from the moment they are born. If they believe, that the name you gave to them when they were born, is their name and not someone else’s, then they will trust you when you teach them other things as well. Always be aware, that you children are always watching you, learning from you, even when you are not aware of it, they always watch. They learn to speak your language, because they are watching you and others, which “you” allow into their lives. Children do not crawl forever, they learn to walk, because they watch you walk. Your child imitates you and mirrors everything you do, because they watch you. If you are a good father your children will be good children, the opposite is also true.


“Do not withhold discipline from a child.” (Proverbs 23:13)

A lot of "soft-hearted” parents cringe at this verse, because they think, all this verse is telling them, is to beat their kids when they are naughty. A lot of people assume, that all this verse is saying to people, is that they should not withhold “punishment” from children. This verse is speaking about more than that; it says, that you should not withhold “training in an orderly way” (discipline) from your child. As a father you need to train your child, you “need” to teach your child right from wrong. It goes beyond just basic “teaching,” it goes into you taking a position as “a personal trainer.” You need to train your child to be a good child, a well-educated and well-behaved child, as is written:

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6 NIV)


You need to train your child. As a father you ‘need’ to be present in your child’s life. How will you train them when you’re not there? How will you protect them from the wolves, when you are not present? Be a present father.


To train your child means, as a parent, as a father, there are times when you need to be firm, yes, but it also means, that you have to be firm in doing and teaching the right thing. It does not mean, that you have to start shouting like some drill-sergeant, or make a lot of noise, to get your kids to follow your instructions. It does mean, that you have to give your child direction, on how to behave and do things the right way, and then allow them to do that, with you watching, they are your kids. Now, I have to say this, being overly harsh with your kids, is not an indication of you being a good parent or a good father. They are kids, they are new here, allow them to make mistakes (a mistake is not a deliberate action; it is a non-deliberate unknowing wrong action). Do not make a fuss when they make mistakes, be gracious, and DO NOT MAKE A BIG DEAL OF A MISTAKE. If an action is deliberate, and willfully wrong, then deal with it with wisdom, ask God for some, if you are in need of some.


The bottom-line: A GOOD FATHER TAKES GOOD CARE OF HIS KIDS. HE DOES HIS BEST TO BRING OUT THEIR BEST. BE A GOOD FATHER.
