To pray is to wrestle with one’s own soul. To come into the all encompassing Light and be bare and vulnerable before God for His Light sees all and sees every shadow and crack and unforgiving imperfection you thought to be hidden deep within. To fearfully kneel before this Truth which sends cold trembles along the your entire being even at the most fragile and unnoticed outer tips of skin n fine hairs standing up down to the deep insufficiency of the human condition, and that much more amplified by the purity and holiness of God. It is in this fission of one’s mind, heart, and soul that one must approach God. And then before He, raise up your heart to Him in the undeniable horribleness of your sin He sees vividly – REPENT!

As your mind’s thoughts stream out in an honest consciousness of all the hard work you have ahead of you to turn away from that sin, improve, restore, and move forth on the uncomfortable path of growth and climb up in reaching closer to God – REFLECT!

And lastly, surrender to this glory that radiates all crevices before thee in an all consuming fire, and know that all man’s knowledge is foolish before God and knowing nothing leaving it all in to Him to give to the only one who knows you fully, in this humbling flicker of His magnanimous grace floating down upon one’s own lowliness is where we surrender to the only one with the power to conquer death and give up our life to accept His new life in us – RENEW!

THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO PRAY!!!

…By the Blood of Christ…

~Amen~

Greeting
Salutations dear brothers and sisters in Christ
Letter from Aphiah, a servant and child of God, and husband of Angel
Reflections on encouragement for our Church in Love by learning to walk according to the Way of Christ, our Lord and Saviour
May the Spirit of God increase you continuously in faith, hope, wisdom, understanding, mercy, unity, and especially Love

“And this is Love, that we walk according to His commandments”

So fellow children of God know this so we may not be deceived by our own wicked hearts, Love is not whatever we say it is by the deception of heart and desire of our flesh. Rather it is abiding in walking in the Way of Christ, who is Love, manifest in the Flesh, and born of the Spirit.

In sin we fall in fear and submit to the ways of the world. The world is against God, and as such is against you. But we are to love one another. So when the world looks upon the Church of God may they see us giving to one another joyfully and putting our brothers and sisters before ourselves so that our life remain as salt, and not lose flavour and preserve this Earth for His Kingdom…

No fall from grace can stop you, dear brethren. For you will overcome this world, just as He inside you has already overcome it. “For there is no fear in love, for perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because God first loved us.” Even when we were His enemies. And in this way we will love all of our enemies over to love. And even greater our love for brothers and sisters who we lay down our life for. For our life is no longer ours, but Christ’s.

And so we dedicate our lives to one another, as our time alive is for serving Christ, who remains faithful in serving us even when we fall short of remaining faithful to Him, so that by believing in Him, He will perfect us in abiding in Him.

Loving thy enemy dear sheep to slaughter…closer still…loving thy countrymen and neighbours…closer still…loving thy community…closer still…loving thy Church…closer still…loving thy spouse and family…closer still…loving Christ, who is God manifest in the flesh…And each step closer to you, oh Lord…the more we die to ourselves and take up new life in you, who is the Truth, the Way, the Life…

“By this we know Love, that He laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and in truth.”

Hearts zealously enflamed to empower Spirit of God which resides in Us, to abide in Him. Furthermore, leg can not do what arm does and arm not what leg does or our body will trip, tumble, n fall. But each of us, abiding to our One Spirit so that our One body works interdependently with one another submitting to each other peacefully as in unison. Forbid it please, that a foot should dictate how our mouth must operate. For is how a mouth functions in a foot’s instructional code? Therefore let each part communicate with Spirit, so that Spirit communicates with each part, and each part then to each other, threefold in unity, in how God has created each in accordance to each’s part. There are no small parts or one above another, for all are neccessary and unique to which one corresponds to our whole body in Oneness.

So in conclusion dear family of God, let us never put ourselves before one another, but be eager in cheer to serve one another, as Christ got down on his knees and He the King of all kings washed their feet. Let us remember to life, remember that cursed tree on which He hung each nail our sins of death poignantly pierced through His body. We are that One body where He wore all our curse, yet we are clean as He was clean? Because of His Glory! In Him persevere little children, my brothers and sisters. And not only endure, but surrender completely, so that all sin and doubt and fear are washed away by His blood so that forevermore we shall love one another in representation for our love for Him who casts out our fear and perfects our love

Being at peace with one another, not grumbling to one another, submitting to one another, teaching one another, exhorting one another, confessing to one another, forgiving one another, seeking good for one another, not repaying evil to one another, being patient and kind with one another, being merciful to one another, encouraging and building up one another, praying for one another, loving one another

Doxology
With all our heart, with all our mind, with all our soul, with all our might, with all our Spirit, which is His, glory of God, forever and ever…Amen

A metallic chain with an explosed link.

In America you can find more of our Jewish brothers breaking bread with Germans, Blacks and Natives with Whites, and so on than any other country. The mission, to be stronger than the past which bonds us and be unbounded no longer simultaneously by the integral necessity of interdependence of mankind.

And so it is written, “his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall bury him the same day, for a hanged man is cursed by God. You shall not defile your land that the LORD your God is giving you for an inheritance.” From early on our great country laid a severely grave curse upon ourselves… Through drips of innocent blood falling from rotten trees cursing our nation…And so the question that remains…
Are we stronger than the curse; or is the curse stronger than us?…
The choice is ours…

I wish I could be “Christian” but I am not worthy. All my good deeds are but dirty rags to offer to God. I am nothing. When Christ was on the cross being crucified He said, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?”

If the condition of human suffering was too great for God Himself than who am I to follow such? I miss the mark, but who else shall I follow? No man can bare. Therefore it is only He in me in which I can achieve anything. And even then, only with one another. When Christ could no longer bear the cross, Simon of Cyrene was compelled to help Him. Brothers and Sisters, whose burden among us are you helping them to bare their cross. Truly I tell you, without one another we are dead.

From the depths of hell we nailed Yeshuah Ben Yah to the cross with our sins. Yet He continually calls to us to receive His gift that He may lift n bear it for us. Immanuel, Imannuel! He lives among Us. For their is no you or I, only Us. For when one brother suffers do we not all suffer and pray for him in his fall? If one Sister forsakes us are we not all forsaken? Therefore let Us not pray for ourselves and help only ourselves, but pray for Us as One body.

Let us thank God in all things. Not because we have the ability to follow him, or are capable to even believe in Him. But when we put our faith in Him, He then instills it in Us. We are not worthy yet He continually blesses us. He blesses us with life, with the pursuit of our wishes, with free will, with family, with friends, with one another.

A call for extra prayers for all of our enemies. May mercy be upon us and we allow ourselves to be vessels of grace to offer to one another. May our hearts burn with such passionate vigor that we lose all desire to sin against one another who each bear the image of God and therefore are infinitely valuable. Thank you for being your specific part to our body.

And then after Jesus sent away many masses wishing to follow Him by delivering hard truths, and then Jesus said to His twelve disciples, “Do you want to go away as well?” And Simon Peter answered Him, “LORD, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”

God Bless Us.

“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ” -2 Corinthians 10:5

Always raise up the knowledge of God above all else and against Earthly knowledge for God’s wisdom is highest and especially be sure that our own thoughts do not sway, we must check when our thoughts fall out of line with His Word

Every day when wake we must put on the whole armour of God to solider the day for Christ Our LORD

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,”
Ephesians 6:10-18

So that we may be vessels to give God’s Light to all for this world has blinded our minds, but all who take up faith in Him may see His glory through the power of His grace, for it is not our glory, but we being servants to His glory

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”
2 Corinthians 4:4-10

Also, thanks and blessings and prayers to brother Xairolla Sherwany for daily guidance, to brother Aaron Schwartzbart for standing firm as rock to be a glowing example of our faith and brother Isaiah Prince Perez for your journey of health and being there for your family in protection providing and heart

Blood painted above thy door
Did thou read into what was more?
A shadow of what’s coming wedding bore
Festive feasts n Sabbaths galore
(Rhythmic rhymes beat)

Then led by half-truths into abyss
A hardened rock to be amiss
Mystery where no sound or sight drifts
Here only His Love can reach this
(Off-beat half-rhymes)

The pretty lie; the ugly truth
Vulnerable submission like Boaz n Ruth
While’st His enemy He died as friend in glory
Tempus Fugit Memento Mori
(A & B half-measures)

I wrote a poem of reflection. Happy Easter n Chag Pesack Sameach 💞

The forgotten, neglected, abused, lonely, alienated, downtrodden and all of God’s lost children. He has not forgotten you. Come Home. You are loved.

Yah Amen
