THOUGHTS ON THIS THANKSGIVING SEASON

Could there be a more fulfilling accomplishment? … Is there a more pure desire than to want the perfect love of God, our creator. What sweeter words could could fall from the lips of a child wanting to rest in the safety, promise, and comfort of his Father, creator? What could be grander than to be whisked into outer space by Jesus, God’s firstfruit of the power of the resurrected life; and behold the universe from HIS perspective, “The One” that spoke everything into existence? What could bring more peace and purpose to life, than ‘the calm’ that would come from knowing the curse on mankind is over, and you/we have achieved the promise of life eternal? No more tears, loss of life, deception, destruction, as we come into the full revelation of God’s original intentions and plan for the gift of life that He has freely given? Tell me please, what is greater than these things? … Written this pre -Thanksgiving day, as the Spirit of God falls on my head like warm oil and covers me in thankfulness. Frankie The Earthman. Happy Thanksgiving all, especially to Mizuho, Lauren, Ari’el and Princess Aja, all true gifts from God.

The creator and His creation, we must wake up to the glory of God.

PERMISSION TO USE OUR BATHROOM

OR BETTER TITLED: THE DAY BETH ANN. WANTED TO TAKE A DUMP IN OUR PORCELAIN CONVENIENCE.

My Japanese wife, 14 year old son, and I live on a mountain. It’s a nice Mountain Home, with the Appalachian Trail virtually in our backyard. It’s a comfortable Mountain Home but we only have one bathroom.

Beth Ann, our one and only close neighbor knocked on the door one day. I answered the front door and greeted her properly. I say to her, “What brings you over here today Beth Ann, you know it’s kind of stifling hot out there.” She replied as she reached around and pulled her red rose pink flowery summer dress out of her hiney, and said, ” I know this is unusual, but may I use your bathroom my toilet is stopped up.” Fear began at my tailbone and shot up my spine like a fiery dart. You see Beth Ann weighs in at about 475 pounds. She was sweating profusely and smelt like a combination of sweat, dirty clothes, and cheap cologne. She smelt just like her husband, and I know he uses Brut aftershave.

Before I answered her, I think my pupils must had dilated. I began to think of her big behind sitting on my toilet. If just one of her cheeks was to slip through and get lodged in the toilet, she would be stuck there and I would have to call 911 to pry her out. Not only that, I feared that since we didn’t have a fan in the bathroom, the smell of her poop, sweat, dirty clothes, and aftershave would forever linger and waft up my nose, at any thought of her taking a dump in our bathroom. My nose would be in shock forever.

Thinking quickly, I lied to her and told her my son was taking a bath. She was very anxious and seemed like she couldn’t wait as she pivoted around and turned to leave. Upon taking her first step she made this monstrous fart that went right down my throat, and I threw up all over the front yard and passed out. I woke up in a minute or so with my wife standing over me, shaking me and asking me if I was alright. She said I was mumbling over and over again while shaking my head, “Permission denied, permission denied.”

Look at those ears. Princess Aja.

A VERY LIKELY TRUTH

Let’s be like lawyers with hearts, spiritual, open hearts. Let’s look at the evidence.

THE SUPPOSITION: God’s Word is true. God left His creation with a ‘Handbook’, it is called the Bible. Concerning God’s Word in His Bible, let’s believe that it is inerrant, infallible. Let’s also believe that man’s inability to rise to the “super truths” of God’s Word, are mainly because of man’s unbelief and being in a ‘fallen state.’ Believing in this fallen state requires understanding what took place in the Garden of Eden, which will not be addressed at this time. Also have we considered that there is no other Handbook for a belief system that approaches the detail and the supernatural gifts that are found in The Bible? The closest thing I can offer to proof of God is to study the “Messianic Prophecies, ie: How were events prophesied down to every detail in the Old Testament and fulfilled some multitude of years later in the New Testament?

THE SITUATION: I should say “mankind’s situation”. But first, in my 68 years on this planet, I don’t think I’ve heard a “most excellent description” of why we humans are ‘here’ in this flesh, blood, and bone-short life, that is full of trouble, deception, destruction, and death. Also, [ As beautiful as earth can be] & ( Don’t you find it a little odd that we are basically on a rock “spinning in the middle of nowhere through outer space?) the earth seems to be very unique in its ability to sustain life as we know it. So mankind, each person, finds him / her self living a life, an existence that he/she apparently had no say in … arriving on planet earth. Looking back, little did we know on our first day in elementary school, what would be coming at us.

THE SITUATION FURTHERED: If we believe that God’s Word is true, then we would have learned that death was not a part of God’s original plan. Let’s be clear, there is no death in God although He allows it. The one true God is a God of life and can have absolutely nothing to do with death. Humanity is cursed by God since Satan deceived us (and we fell for the deception) in the garden of Eden. This is a whole separate study that we will not address at this time. What also would come to man through the wisdom of God and learning about Him, is that to believers, He, THE HOLY SPIRIT is a warm comforting blanket, to unbelievers HE is a consuming fire. Read the Old Testament.

A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING: If we spend time in the Word of God we learn many things. One of the main things is that God will let you live your life, and will not necessarily interrupt you if you don’t want to find out about Him. ( Also understand if you are chosen, God will intervene in your life for His purposes, STUDY PAUL OF TAURSUS). God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are gentlemen. ( So to speak )

FURTHER UNDERSTANDING: More important things to understand, concern “the powers of God” which seem to be unknowable, and unbelievable, as we are existing in this low state. Having read The Bible in its entirety and studied deeply, we can learn of the supernatural powers of God. We also learn that there are angels, archangels, and super entities that are far stronger and superior to man. We learn that through following God’s plan we can have eternal life. We can escape the curse of death, because it has been defeated but we have to claim it. We learn it’s really all about accepting a provided free gift.

ABOUT JESUS: Know that Jesus Christ “willingly” gave His life for all of us. He didn’t have to, He chose to out of love for us. He didn’t have to go to the cross, yet He did. ( He could have summoned angels to help Him) In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus asked His Father if there was “any there other way” to provide for the salvation of mankind. There was not and Jesus fulfilled His mission. Perhaps more later, written in it’s entirety by Frankie The Earthman.

My 2000th Post

To celebrate my 2000th post on WordPress, I would like to humbly toot my horn a little bit.

I began writing on WordPress on approximately November 17th, 2017. I was looking at my stats, since using ‘Grammarly’ in my writing. It was quite a revelation. Looking at some numbers, one could read one of my pieces of writing (posts) every day for 5 years straight and you would arrive at 1825 posts. Like I mentioned this is my 2000th post.

So, Since November 17th 2017 I have written approximately 564,000 words. Now I know that quantity of words is not indicative of quality. But I believe the quality is there. I realized that if I pursue book form, I could have 8 to 10 volumes of over 200 pages each. If I am able to do this, I will call the body of work, Frankie The Earthman. Also these volumes would contain 97% of my own photography that accompany the posts.

Since the last 5 years contain approximately a little over 1/2 of my writing, I venture to say that I have written close to between 650,000 and 750,000 words. My writing started early as poetry. It blossomed into political satire, biblical & world religion studies, spoofs, and short stories. Frankie The Earthman. Visit littleraventhepoet.blog

My sweetie pie, Aja, THE PRINCESS.
Mizuho & Ari’el, my loves.

A CHRISTIAN AMERICA? : PART FOUR

So, please read parts one, two, and three before reading this post, part four.

What we have experienced and are experiencing is the progressive closing of America to its openness to God. America wanted to experience ‘new ideas and new ways.’ As we look back our acceptance of the “new morality” was just another step in the rejection of God. The worshipping and our relationship to God Which was our source of joy, happiness, virtue, and freedom; was now viewed as a hindrance, a restraint and oppression. Over the cliff we went as a nation.

Looking back, the Jews had cast out Baal from their world. Upon the arrival of ‘the gospel’, the same thing happened in Western civilization. Baal was working overtime to cast God out of America. As had been done to the ‘gods’ in ancient times, the same would be done in America in the West, in casting ‘God’ out.

This casting God out of America has continued into the twenty-first century. God has been driven out of government, out of the public square, movie theaters, television sets, out of the arts, out of ethics, out of hearts, out of minds, and out of lives. Ref: J. Cahn, THE RETURN OF THE GODS, PGS 47- 48.

For example, let’s look at our current government situation. Our government is now so corrupt that no one can be trusted. For instance look at ‘the January 6th committee’ against Donald Trump. Now that the republicans have gained power in the Congress, there is no more January 6th committee. So what do the democrats do ? through Attorney General Garland, they set up a new council to investigate Donald Trump, yet again. I was telling my neighbor just the other day that my concern, was that “We The People” will continue to be lost in the charade that is our government. I also commented to him that the only thing we could look forward to, is the continued darkness of the human heart ; the greed, corruption, vanity, etc. We in America are as rotten as Rome was, and will more than likely have the same end if we don’t change.

A CHRISTIAN AMERICA?- PART THREE

THE DOORS SLOWLY OPENED IN AMERICA, WELCOMING lesser gods…namely Baal. Please read Parts one and two prior to this post, part three. We need to take small biyes of this subject matter.

Through America’s turning away from God, our hedge of godly protection has slowly eroded. Scriptures supporting moral and ethical conduct have been kicked to the curb. Monotheism and God’s word were and are no longer honored. Doors that were closed to lesser gods were now reopened.

Baal had always battled against other gods, Study Canaanite mythology for more information and insight. Baal conflicted with the God of Israel and His people. These wars involve, morality, spirituality, politics, and culture.

So in twentieth century America, the return of Baal would bring about a cultural, civilizational, and spiritual collision. It would at times be described as a “culture war”, but it was much deeper than culture. The conflict was ultimately spiritual, that of Baal against God — the rematch of an ancient battle. Ref: J. Cahn & THE RETURN OF THE GODS, PG. 47. Frankie The Earthman.

A CHRISTIAN AMERICA? : BAAL AGAINST YHWH

Are ancient parables indicative of what is taking place today in America and Western civilization?

A Christian America?, Part Two

When the gospel entered Western civilization, the gods departed. The lesser gods left the house. Monotheism and the Word ( the two hedges against the gods) were ascending over paganism. But as prophesied, if these things should be weakened or removed the departed spirits and ancient gods would return. America exchanged her God for Baal, a lesser god.

Who is Baal? Baal was Lord of rains and fertility, he represented increase, gain, and profit. Baal was believed to provide abundance to one’s fields and vineyards. The Old Testament is full of stories as Baal was called upon to challenge the God of Israel, YHWH. Frankie The Earthman. This post was inspired by Jonathan Cahn’s book– THE RETURN OF THE GODS, subject matter from Chapter eleven, pg 47.

A CHRISTIAN AMERICA – WHAT HAPPENED?

A LOOK BACK, Part One.

America did away with the safeguards of God’s Word and law. Study the ancient history of Israel for more information. Over time since the sixties, America removed God from our society and opened the door for other gods to come in.

The ten commandments were removed from public view. One of the commandments is against worshiping other gods, having removed the laws, the door was open to our decline. The commandment concerning sexual immorality had been removed. America opened its doors and could indulge in all the commandments had warned against.

Now America was not observing any absolute standards, little did we know the ‘fall’ that would result. The bridge had been destroyed, and we plunged into the dominion of the lesser gods. God’s word and prayer was no longer a concern of the media and culture, the ways of God were no longer proclaimed in the public square.

The influence of Baal Was covering America like a blanket. Part two coming soon. Frankie The Earthman.

ISN’T IT IRONIC

A black fly in your Chardonnay, a death row pardon two minutes to late, it’s like rain on your wedding day … Alanis Morrisette.

Surprise, surprise, Sargent Carter, The ironic thing is: “All Joe Biden had to do when he took office was NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Donald Trump had everything set up for success in this country. Joe Biden and his administration were so full of hate for Donald Trump and his success, that they couldn’t resist tearing the country down. Joe’s main accomplices were Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer a host of others.

The hatred of Joe Biden kind of reminds me of the hatred of Satan towards God. It is said that God made Satan after “the perfect pattern.” (Not that creepy that Joe has a gram of perfection in him). Joe like Satan could not be happy in his position, because of his hatred of the one above him. ( And let me say this now, Joe Biden could not hold the lamp for Donald Trump to shine in.) Joe could not be happy without trying to destroy HIS superior, Donald Trump.) ISN’T IT IRONIC HOW POWERFUL JEALOUSY AND HATRED CAN BE?

Nancy Pelosi … done … BON VOYAGE, SEE YA LATER, (BUGS BUNNY )
