This Side of the Whirlwind: Flowers’ Heir


, , , , ,

Flowers’ Heir

Remember, our needs are met in Christ Jesus even as the Flowers of the field.

It’s just that sometimes we don’t feel or understand where God is going with our lives.

For your edification and enjoyment…

Flowers’ Heir

In great beauty you are spun from soil and air,

Light from distant sun and seed of formers fair;

Then with great beauty once again you are spun,

Until in your juniors your face smiles towards distant sun.


Ephemeral Senectitude: Poems

Ephemeral Senectitude


      Days of pastel blues and lusterless reds could fill the inevasible blind pages to come.  I see the splendor of my own antecedence, or rather the privation thereof.  Once bound in a twirl of youthful folly now I marvel, can they not see?

I think they too, as I once, choose drunkenly, willfully to be ensnared by the false comfort of never‑ending youth; the pervasive: “There will be time”.

Though I have traveled many roads and stumbled on paths bleak,

This Side of the Whirlwind: Messiah or NOT the Messiah



The Messiah of the ISRAELITE’S Vs the Messiah of Christendom

Since the beginning of Christendom it has been implied the Israelites somehow missed the coming of their Messiah, but was that the case?

When the Savior arrived in Jerusalem near His 30th birthday, He was not the Messiah for which the Jews were waiting; leastwise, not at that time.  According to Old Testament scriptures and prophecies, the Israelites were waiting for an entirely different kind of Messiah and not the loving, humble and love your “enemies” type of Messiah.  Below is a list of Messianic scriptures which should help to identify the Messiah Israel expected to encounter during the years of Christ’s ministry:

The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Genesis. 49:10 

  • Genesis 49:10 does not sound like it’s speaking of a meek and gentle Messiah, submissive to the oppressive government of that day.
  • Rather, the verse depicts a potentially powerful domineering Messiah.
  • At the very least, the verse depicts a Messiah who is coming to gather warriors and take authority over a nation.

  • Seek HIM in the morning
  • Seek HIM for a move of His hand in your every day
  • Rejoice in Jesus for He is THE Savior.
  • Seek HIM for HE is good!

Let the beauty of your relationship with our Creator rise within you!

World News today: October 26th 2017

LA Times:

  • Mysterious Illness strikes West-Coast: Southern California Health Officials today reported a fifth victim fallen to what many are unofficially calling Jameson’s Disease.  The disease informally named after David Jameson, first victim to fall prey to this new pathogen, has been plaguing the greater Los Angeles area for more than three weeks.  Jameson’s swift prodromal period is followed by severe bloating, fever, fatigue, muscle pain and rapid muscular degeneration.  The last stages for Jameson’s has thus far produced high fever and a severe systemic type of hematidrosis: more commonly referred to as blood-sweats with patients bleeding through pores in their skin, out of their eyes, nose, ears and sometimes genitalia causing system wide hemorrhaging, acute blood loss and finally death.  “Frankly,” says one unnamed California health official, “We are baffled by the origin and evolution of this new disease.  Though Jameson’s tends to present with signs and symptoms similar to that of Ebola or Dengue Fever its co-morbidities are constantly changing, varied and enigmatic.  We are not yet certain what we’re dealing with from patient to patient.  More grave is the fact that this disease sprung up from nowhere and seems to have cropped up all over the world in just a few weeks.”

Shaped and Transformed Into?

What are you learning?

If you were called upon to prepare a group of people for a wide-ranging existence…

Where they needed to love the unlovable and show kindness to those who did not seem to deserve kindness…

What kind of environment would you prepare for your people?

Would you not create an environment where the principles and characteristics of kindness and love were not generally displayed and seldom offered on a daily basis?


Wouldn’t you instead put your people face to face with Continue reading
