The Louder Voices

i have acquired an Atheist follower.

Sampling a few of that person’s recent blogs, i ask myself, “Will this person use my articles as fodder?”

“Maybe i should follow them too!”

Naw, very bad idea.

Why? Because then i would be responding or assuming, much.

i do not desire to define or spread my faith through dissertation of someone else’s opinion.

i shake my head reading some of it, thinking, ‘i do not want to define my beliefs by attacking someone elses.’

Thinking, ‘Science is full of theories, that have become ‘facts’.

Science ignores the vast majority of things it finds, that lean toward proving Elohim’s existence.

Whenever science popularizes anything that those who believe in Elohim use, then this ‘discovered’ thing gets vilified and/or goes back into obscurity.

I find it interesting that many Atheists are legalists, grammatical ones too.

I joined a site, that spoke of discussion on many topics.

I joined with a measure of excitement, until i realized, very quickly the Atheistic leanings of the site.

(Hmmm, i wonder what Liberal Atheists & Conservative Atheist conversations are like? (for i run across more conservative ones)

i removed the app to the site, long time later i unsubscribed my emails from it, making sure i deleted my account.

i may have attracted attention from that quarter.

i personally was looking forward to the debate.

i remember posting on the site, that my belief, “Is not logical. It is something that cannot be debated. Something a logical mind cannot comprehend.”

A ‘proof’ not sustainable with logic. 🙂

Hallelujah! 😀

How can one disrespect a person’s belief, yet respect the person?

Beliefs are an integral part of humanity.

i believe it is impossible to disrespect a person’s beliefs and respect the person.

(So then, are we disrespecting ourselves when we knowingly disrespect anything about another?)

Question is: Who & what deems disrespect?

Is like asking what is proof?

What is beauty?

The eye of the beholder.

My eye beholds beauty. 😀

The Holy Spirit teaches respect.

i am learning to trust what He says.

i am learning to believe what He says.

i am learning what Love is. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

What’s Love got to do with it? (Tina Turner?)

That song speaks of human love, not 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

We argue, we debate, uneccessarily.

That is unhealthy.

Assumptions and confrontational positions. Unhealthy.

i do not desire to live, think, breathe, talk that way, anymore.

The Lord, the Holy Spirit is removing the desire to think evil, by assuming, reacting to assumptions.

The Holy Spirit shows me other ways, insights, mercy & grace, beyond my understanding.

Seen as patience, as peace.

i watch the litigation, the speech & see the spirit behind it.

The purpose, how it could have came to be, how Elohim see’s it.

(i see the agitation, unpeace)

i remember me, B.C.

How at 6, is different than 3.

How irrelevant, rather the desire to debate, is leaving me.

Better understanding of The Louder Voices.

A matter of perception.

Only the Holy Spirit can change that.

i am learning to lean on that.

For i ask for help with my unbelief.

Raised in falsity.

False Beliefs, hypocrisy.

Learning to be more true.

To ‘not sweat’ what other’s see.

Critically, blindly.

(Helps with fawners too!) 😀

How can one not be deceptive, always doing what others do?

Saying what others say?

These things called societal/cultural laws.

Based on hypocrisy in & of itself?

Busy accusing, reacting to accusations, as if they are true.

Just because the accuser has many voices, causing a roar.

One voice, ends all that.

My job is to praise You, through the good & the bad.

Remembering that?

While being accused?

😀

Because praise is what i do.

Try it! 😀

Who would think such a simple thing, would be so huge?

What do you do for a living?

Praise You.

You don’t do anything!

😀

Yes i do.

Lots of it.

My favorite thing to do! 😀

Praising You! 😀

Freedom!

i see You smiling down on me, whenever i remember my purpose is, to praise & thank You. 😀

He becomes the Loudest Voice.

This is not a debatable thing.

No desire to partipate in such, when i see You smiling at me! 😀

Love You Holy Spirit! TY! 😀

(i feel sorry for those who cannot do this.

Focusing on Christ, like this! 😀

Opposition melts away, internally (eternally).

Something i have always done, now magnified!

Praise!

May i spread my hands wider as time goes on!

In spirit & in truth.

Something not seen much, via words, Atheists.

The Holy Spirit is felt, beyond words.

Anything i could ever say is insufficient.

My spirit, my heart says more than my brain ever could.

Illogical things. 😀

Praise is what i do! 😀

May you experience the Joy of the Lord, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen!)

https://www.gotquestions.org/names-Holy-Spirit.html

(one of my favorite sites for all things Christian, Got Questions.org!)

Hebrew Names for the Holy Spirit?

https://bible.org/seriespage/1-holy-spirit-hebrew-bible-and-its-connections-new-testament

Understanding the OT terms “Holy Spirit” and “the Spirit of God (or the LORD)” and the theology associated with them depends on grasping the significance of the fact that, in about 40% of its occurrences, the Hebrew word “spirit” (ruakh) basically means “wind or breath,” not “spirit.”…(which is) most of the important ways the term “spirit” (Hebrew j~Wr, ruakh ) is used in the Hebrew Bible.

The term “Holy Spirit” actually occurs only three times in the Hebrew Bible.

The expression itself is literally “ your (God’s) Spirit of holiness” (;v=d+q* j^Wr, ruakh qodeshkha)

In general, the Jewish view is that “the spirit of God referred to in the Bible alludes to His energy (Isa 40:13; Zech 4:6).”5

according to the Rabbis, although the “spirit of God” is of divine origin, this does not mean that there is a “Holy Spirit” as a divine person. On the contrary, the Holy Spirit is a mode of the one and only God’s self-expression in word and action.

(Only?)

with Genesis 7:22b, where all mankind and land animals “in whose nostrils was the breath [neshamah] of the spirit [ruakh] of life, died” (nasb) in the flood (except those on the ark of course).

in a context where we once again see the close connection between “spirit” (ruakh) and “breath” (neshamah), Elihu says, “If God were to set his heart on it, and gather in his spirit and his breath, all flesh would perish together and human beings would return to dust” (Job 34:14–15)

1 Corinthians 2:10b-12

no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

Just as people have a “spirit,” so does God.

the Spirit of God/the Lord” and its pronominal equivalents (e.g., “my Spirit”) occur many times in the Hebrew Bible, while “Holy Spirit” occurs only three times. In the New Testament the situation is very different, almost reversed. “The Spirit of God/the Lord” occurs only about 25 times, but “(Holy) Spirit” over 150 times.

1 Corinthians 2:11

the “Spirit” of God knows the deep things of God (v. 10b), that is, his thoughts (v. 11b).

Moreover, the way we come to understand “the things that are freely given to us by God” by his grace through faith in Jesus Christ (v. 12b; cf. vv. 1–9) is by receiving the Spirit of God in our human “spirit” (v. 12–13; cf. v. 10a). Having the Spirit, we are “spiritual” and “have the mind [nou'” (nous)] of Christ” (v. 16b).

Romans 8:16

The Spirit [of God; see the context] himself bears witness to our [human] spirit that we are God’s children.”

in both the Old and the New Testaments God has set his Spirit “in” and “among” his people for guidance and empowerment

As a human person’s spirit can be grieved, so can the Spirit of God

The spirit of a human person is distinguishable from his or her body.

(for some people anyway!) 😀

in this sense the spirit of a person is the person, then the Spirit of God is God.

Hebrew word suggests that if a person has “breath” they are alive physically and if they have the Spirit of God they are alive spiritually.

Ezekiel 37:

As the vision goes, God tells Ezekiel to prophesy that God “will make breath (ruakh) enter” them so that they “will come to life” (v. 5).

John 3

what is born of the Spirit is spirit” (v. 6)

We cannot always predict what he is going to do, and he is not under our control even if he has told us what he is going to do. He is God. We are not. All this is true also of the Spirit of God.

we can draw upon his power. Using the analogy of a ship driven by the wind, we can “put up the sails” in our lives and thereby take advantage of the blowing of the Spirit in and through our lives. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit as long as we have our sails up.

Putting up the sails begins, above all, with being “born” of the Spirit into the kingdom of God (John 3). It continues through continuing attentiveness to God in our lives on various levels and in all sorts of ways.

The more we are attentive to God in all the various dimensions of our lives, the more we invite the Holy Spirit to empower us by “putting up our sails,” (the more we ‘put up our sails’) to that degree, we live our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit.

(i must say that The Holy Spirit can feel like there is wind moving, where there is none!

Goosebumps are another indicator.

Not to be confused with goosebumps under other circumstances.

Be mindful of other spirits imitating the Holy Spirit.

Those who purposely lead the righteous wrong? (meaning spirits not of Elohim (for there is only one Holy Spirit!) have an acute punishment from Elohim, Himself!

The Lord sees the heart, what is hidden in it.

To be aware of Elohim’s thoughts? His heart in other words? So very different than the desires of hue-mans…is favor indeed!

A tremendous blessing/gift!

The Holy Spirit is symbolized as the Dove, representing Peace and Air. (aka the Holy Ghost, there is only one!) 😀

Holy spirit dove

The Holy Spirit is symbolized as Water (Rain come down, rain on us, being baptized in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is deep and vast, The River, the Water in the Well, etc)

The Holy Spirit is also symbolized with Fire! That can be portrayed with lightning as well! Electricity.

 

May the Holy Spirit guide you in Yeshua’s holy name, amen! 😀

 

1 Corinthians 9

Are you not my work in the Lord?

(ministry)

If to others (this is not a ministry), then to you (those who have benefited from these) at least they are.

Online only? These ministries are wherever i am.

Whenever Christ is present, there is a ministry.

He is Present.

In a fashion not preferable to some,

Yet that is how He is revealed. 😀

Not standard!

Never standard!

Never boring!

Never ‘regular‘.

If your God has any of that!

Then you are losing Him!

😀

Breathing is taken for granted

Until you get asthma, or some other breathing difficulty.

Being alive is taken for granted

when you’ve never really lived or died.

Elohim is taken for granted

Until you realize

how much your life would be better, easier, funner… 😀

With Him.

My life was so dark.

Spelling errors are insignificant then.

What other people ‘think’ doesn’t matter then.

(must remember that!)

Irrelevant!

i mean every single word:

Take everything, i don’t want it, i don’t need it…

i just want You.

Sometimes i still forget that.

How deeply that is.

This saves my soul.

Puts everything in correct perspective.

My ambition gets ahead of me.

He responds, “You are Mine! Daughter (Son). I will not allow anyone nor anything take you from me. Not even you! As you have asked me, many, many times, still.

You are Mine!”

Calm, peace, love consumes my tears.

For my soul, my spirit cries out!

As i loose my mind, my confidence, broken.

Even there, He brings me sanity, my food, my sustenance, is Him!

We eat of Him, less we die.

“Remember this.” The Holy Spirit reminds me.

As i sit by the well…

As i draw from The Well?

As i eat from My Daily Bread (not the publication either.)

i’m so far in, i forget others don’t know, others never knew, others are dead because they reject, The Bread, The Living Water, The Holy Spirit…

One accepts Christ by truly loving.

Eventually, He will gather together all those who hear His heart, around the world, the universe.

(sentient life on other planets? No one who ‘listens’ is alien to Him. (for us to believe ‘we’ are all there is, of sentience…do not believe in Elohim.)

i ask Him more & more, “Help me with my unbelief!”

Growing up in a world that acts as if You do not exist?

Or is unloving in any way? (of that we all have much to repent)

(my desire to post this is leaving, yet i am reminded of how this began)

We all need help with our unbelief!

To be a Disciple, means to follow our lead, our authority.

Means student, means learning.

i die when i disobey.

i die when i haven’t drawn deeply enough, from The Well.

Losing Him!

I must be immersed at a certain level, to stay alive!

Reconnect spiritually, deeply…

i must cry out,

to the Lord,

regularly!

I die if not.

Its slow, like a boa constrictor.

One doesn’t notice until…

Breakdowns happen.

(if you only come to Me deeply, in turmoil, then you stay in turmoil)

Stay in breakdown?

Cycle is a hereditary dis-ease! Though Lord!

True.

i ask Thee, “Break me (us) free from generational curses!”

Generations of disobedience, of not listening!

For we were Kings & Queens.

What did we do to lose that?

We forgot You.

To be truly free

Requires us (me) to remember You.

To never lose You again!

Seek Him.

Regardless of whether or not others believe you are.

He knows.

and that is all that matters.

Take everything, i don’t want it, i don’t need it…(Travis Greene)

For You are The Underground Railroad, our magic beans, our beanstalk, our David…

Yeshua, You are.

in Yeshua’s holy name, amen.

1 Corinthians 6

Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?

So if you have law courts dealing with matters of this life, do you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church?

I say this to your shame.

Is it so, that there is not among you one wise man who will be able to decide between his brethren, but brother goes to law with brother, and that before unbelievers?

Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded?

On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your brethren.

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?

Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

1 Corinthians 6:3-11 – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage?search=1%20Corinthians%206:3-11&version=NASB

We judge angels now, for how they treat us, how angels think of us.

The ones who left Elohim are already condemned and we see false representations of Michael, Gabriel and the like in film, etc all the time!

Things like humans are deplorable, they deserve…whatever; that is a demon! For that is the thinking of the devoid.

How do i know this? For Elohim believes we are worth cherishing, worthy of forgiveness, worthy of endless chances, worthy of day & night, worthy of His breath…

Worthy of Himself, Love.

There is no need to study the different levels of hell (or heaven), no need to study the hierarchy/rank of angels either (in heaven nor hell)

(Heaven is with Elohim, not in the sky (He is everywhere!) 😀 Looking up is symbolic & in spirit look up and all over the planet/universe!)

Likewise hell is not beneath the Earth’s crust (the ground), in a hot place, hell is away from Elohim!

Just like we can only imagine what ‘Heaven’ is like, we know hell all too well! Hell is easy to describe is it not?

To experience heaven, cultivate a closer & closer relationship with The Messiah, Yeshua, everyday!)

We do not sentence, we are not made to sentence. We are made to judge, discern, analyze, etc.

People say don’t judge me.

People think we don’t have that right, being imperfect ourselves;

Yet we do…for the ability to discern is given to us all!

How we do it? (in our spirits)

This is where we go wrong, with biased judgements, discernment not in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

And yes, if another ‘Christian’ mistreats me & no other person desires to help me rebuke them in the way of 1st Corinthians 13:4-8?

And i’ve brought it forward according to the bible (Matthew 18: 15-17)?

Does not mean just sit there and take it, silently.

It means hand it over to Elohim, to Yeshua to handle!

For He is Our Protector right? Our Champion? The Holy Spirit is Our Guide, correct?

We act like it when we are listening so hard to the Lord, we know when to let it go! When to leave, when to stay, following what the Holy Spirit tells us internally to do…

Then we are attaining self-control.

Self-control from the Holy Spirit is attained after the others.

For the Holy Spirit controlling me vs the spirit of control,

Totally feels different! Is freeing.

One learns not to fret how it turns out, not to manipulate it ourselves.

Because we learn that no matter how it turns out (seemingly good or bad), The Holy Spirit has us.

Bubble wraps us/shields us! 😀

And we are rewarded greatly for our obedience.

So we can take ‘losses’, even ‘victories’, others can’t.

For some ‘victories’, cause many to loose themselves.

The Holy Spirit teaches us how to obey Him.

It becomes second nature.

Become adept at this inner guidance.

Its one of the reasons why we continue being blessed, despite our circumstances.

Watch out for envy from others because of it!

(Give your pain about this to Elohim! The Messiah is very gentle and kind when we do this.

Admitting our confusion & loneliness, imagine Our Father Comforting us as we cry unabashedly, like His Child would.) 😀

How He treats us, when we surrender like this?

That is heaven! 😀

Heaven is in My Secret Place.

What i just described is that Secret Place!

So is heaven a place?

Yes! & not in the ‘material’ sense.

Same with hell, there is no ‘material ‘hell’. But we’ve been there!

Have you been in the presence of the Lord?

Then hopefully you experienced the joy of being truly loved.

Only Elohim/Yeshua/The Holy Spirit love unconditionally.

We as hue-mans may get to express this unconditional love from time to time.

That is heaven!

For that?

i will take ‘your’ ‘hits’.

i will take a loss.

i will take a win.

In the name of Yeshua, the Messiah?

Any day, all day!

For i’m in Heaven!

I’m in the Presence of the Lord.

The Holy Spirit has me! 😀

Allah U Akbar! 😀

Quote Thaddeus 8, 2018

“Mistakes are the portals of discovery.”

James Joyce

Many people think certain ways of thinking are of a particular philosophy or religion.

There are things/thoughts that are similar in humanity because of Elohim.

There is the Thinking of Elohim or the Way Elohim thinks.

Different cultures, religions, people totally separate from each other may have similar thoughts, does not mean that the one who spoke or wrote it first is the Author of such thinking.

For the Lord places His thoughts and desires in hearts and minds open to receiving such.

In times of copyright/intellectual right/trademark infringement, explains why it is important to keep up on the laws of it.

One i know of is whoever commercially used it first, there is another one where all that matters is that one document the time and date such a thought came. Another is, whoever paid for the right first, is the one who gets it.

In an expanding world, no longer just where you live, in your culture, your country, do such ideas exist.

And there are many people out there who cannot/do not receive such thinking/thoughts from Elohim and so they steal it from others who do.

The Lord has prepared me for this, being a creative mind, i watched such angry fights over this as a child. I watched how a person here in the US can rise, be successful, only to find out much later, that someone outside of the US has already used the same idea.

The laws are different internationally. Very few people are /do look at international laws; and the bad thing about it is, there are very few international laws-bad or good, depending on circumstance (upbringing, culture, etc). It is more Regional Laws.

And just because there is a company/entity (for corporations are considered people-at least here in the US), that supposedly ‘regulates’ international or regional law, does not mean that they protect the innocent.

Usually laws are made for the ones who have the finances/influence and so that leaves the ‘law’ vulnerable to those who have/are abusing others to have received this ‘influence’ in the first place.

It feels like rewarding evil behavior.

In the Lord, we wait. Meaning, go ahead and stand up for your rights regardless of the Goliath, the time has come for such Goliath tactics to fall, worldwide.

Requiring the rest of us to be like David, standing firm in our belief in Elohim, regardless of whatever the Goliath says/does, do not stop, paper trail, protest trail , Goliath.

You being retaliated against is just proof. We all need more proof.

Imagine trying to hide masses of people who have been murdered (physically or socially (culturally).

Every such ‘murder’ is felt by Elohim.

Hot coals on their heads. Makes for them to think and believe they can get away with anything.

Like the IRS though…Elohim can be.

The hard hearted are there as lessons for us, as warnings…wait and you will see, payment is due, many years later, Elohim remembers, while the hard hearted are ‘stuck’/addicted to believing lies.

There is nothing in our hearts or minds anywhere on this planet, in the universe, that is not known or seen by Elohim.

We choose to disobey, we choose not to believe and then want to blame Elohim for the way things are?

Be the change you want to see. Is something that i have learned, something i have said, yet today i find out Mahatma Gandhi said it.

Me? not well known, yet (in today’s world i pray to never be ‘well’ known!), yet i put:

Be the change you want to see.

Mahatma Gandhi

Changes things right?

instead of me saying it without even ‘signing’ it.

Truth is truth regardless of who says it. We have been trained to listen to who is saying it? Means we have become blind and deaf.

From the mouths of babes (children)…comes words of Elohim. The Heart of Elohim, Yeshua and the Holy Spirit.

Children of Elohim.

I am watching His words be twisted as well.

This is why the spirit behind the words, the motive, is so important.

It is what is meant when in spirit and in truth, is said.

Words are not enough!

What is in one’s heart, one’s spirit, one’s motive, is more important than the words!

Disciple of the Holy Spirit.

Have you ever heard words from someone you do not trust?

Saying the same words you’ve heard many times from someone you do trust?

How does it make you feel?

Does it make you angry?

Or does it make you feel revulsion?

Like fingernails on a blackboard, all the hairs on your body stand straight up!

My face reacts, i want to cover my ears to stop the bleeding!

Authority is given to those who take it.

True.

How though, is determined by one’s motive, by ones spirit!

For we just are.

Those who have authority, naturally just are.

The spirit of control needs to take it.

We assume it.

And where one leads others also speaks of one’s motive/spirit.

Sounds a little different, eh?

Things are being said differently?

Do you notice?

Or are you agreeing just because of….?

Discernment gets better with practice.

Practice not using your brain, your heart, become close minded, hard hearted.

All or nothing is not how Elohim is.

That is the spirit of control.

Because Elohim has more patience than that. More mercy, more compassion, more understanding.

It is not easy to be different than the majority today. There was a time when being unique wasn’t a threat.

How one reacts to something, anything, determines whether that person is walking in the Holy Spirit at that moment or not.

Its ok, if you find out later, otherwise.

For that person is growing or dying.

When one is a disciple of the Holy Spirit, we shed what one use to believe, a lot!

This ‘shedding’ increases, the closer one gets to the Lord.

Check the rate and speed of a person’s growth?

I do not have time for that, when i am busy shedding myself!

Unless i am in a position given to me by the Holy Spirit to do so.

We as the Disciples of the Holy Spirit, followers of the Messiah, learn how to rebuke in love.

How to help another ‘shed’.

The best way is by example.

I figure if folk want to not think for themselves, to never question/use their discernment…

Then i need to find people like myself, who do, who know how to do this with love, instead of anger only.

I’ll never find them if i never seek them.

I’ll never find them if i am not one myself.

Be the change you want to see, is not a Hindu philosophy because Mahatma Gandhi said it.

Mahatma Gandhi lived that philosophy/agreement within his own mind and found others who agreed with him…who were not of the same ‘religion’ as he was.

How do you explain that?

Yet a Christian and a Muslim finding such agreement? Happens all the time, even today, in the United States. (This is what use to make the US such a great place to live, a place where such unforeseen barriers are crossed in peace.)

Because those who follow Elohim in their hearts? Have a commonality that reaches across man made barriers like religion, race, culture, sexual sin, etc.

We know each other, for My sheep hear Me-the Lord says.

This is why i say the Bible is only understood with the Holy Spirit.

Words are never enough.

People are forgetting False Prophets, False Teachers, people who say the ‘right’ things yet whose hearts and minds are closed.

Elohim waits. We, the disciples of the Holy Spirit wait too. For we remember when we use to believe differently.

The more one sheds the world, the more one has patience for someone else who has yet to shed such.

We have still much to shed.

In our ‘shedding’ do not sin. Means: Even if you do (for we all do, in some fashion), repentance becomes easier and faster too!

Like David, we recognize where we went wrong, sooner and sooner, faster and faster, in the Name of Yeshua, the Messiah, Allah U Akbar! 😀

Hallelujah. 😀
