violence

gailardia1howdy my friends. I was just on youtube and was watching a video among others like it about government interference with exercising rights. made me think about all the violence being commited everyday to the point people dont think of it as violent.

In america life seems pretty peaceful compared to syria, africa, and other middle eastern nations, and compared to europe where they seem to be having alot of terrorist attacks and violent protests for one thing or another. Or it could be less so simply because the news media can make things appear worse then they are so I wouldnt trust them.

Anyhow I was thinking of all the ways we are affected or perpetuating violence in our lives without realizing it Example, there are so many horse lovers out there, me being one of them, so many dog owners and animal owners in general. How many times have we done things which we were taught is correct and good? for example how many ride with bits in a horses mouth? how many use spurs? how many lock their horses in stalls for hours at a time and how many beat their horses when they buck rear or forcefully move around the person? How many get involved in horses sports either as participants or obsevers?

Much of this is very violent, bits hurt even in the best hands spurs too, a horse being locked up is like a prison sentence, denying them the stimulation of being with other horses interacting and chasing and sometimes even playing together and yes fighting too it is how herd dynamics works who is higher who is lower who is a trustworthy leader who isnt, stuff like that.  many horse misbehaviors are due to human ignorance in how horses feel see and hear things. Bits I learned myself do not control a horse, they can lead to bucking and running away. Please dont blame the horse when things go wrong it is always the humans fault.

another way we commit violence is how we treat our dogs, locking them up in a house for hours a day without compansionship or stimulation or play. We put collars on them instead of harnesses which might be better I dont know, we feed them crappy dog food,  When we realize how animals are what their needs are we can better provide them a better happier existance.

of course this applies to all animals. me personally I love birds would love a macaw or parrot but refuse to get one since I hate putting animals in cages. no cages do not cage your dog either. it is cruel and violent. Another way we are violent without knowing is when we waste the family income on drugs or alcohol or gambling whether on lottery or stock market. When you smoke cigerattes around those who have no choice to leave or move elsewhere. do not smoke around your family in the  house it is unloving.

These things we dont typically think of as violent but they are, the word violence comes fromthe word violate and violate means as one of the defintions I seen in a dictionary to violate the rights of another.  When the government tells you,  you need permits or a license to exercise a right you already have, this is a form of violence. when your forced to pay taxes on your land and house you paid for that is a form of violence.  When your forced to pay for goods and services you do not want or when behaviors are criminalized simply because of economic considerations rather than for justice then this is violent.

Example is off grid living, many are taking this option as a way to reduce the cost of living and enjoy more time in leisure and family time and of course rest. many are working to many hours per week just to live decently. Not a good thing really. Anyhow, they are criminlizing this as well, threatening to arrest people who do so on their own private property, who violate the right of the people to live as they please when they are not harming anyone else. no victim no crime is the saying I hear alot. I have been watching many videos on this and see this as a violation (violence) against the right of a person to enjoy their property as they see fit.

this reminds me of a bible prophecy that John recorded in revelation. It speaks about the last days (our day) when the sun gets incredibly hot, now before you freak out this is a symbolic, the sun is already hot enough to scorch you if a pin sized part of it is within 90 miles of you. Anyway this sun represents unrightous rulers. they scorch mankind by tyrannizing over them, by harassment, by injust actions against the people for whatever the justification. They commit violence against people everyday with their wars against others (like the drug war, or carnal war against other nations, war on poverty etc) many of these wars are unjust on it’s face and are a form of oppression as hot as the sun. Hence mankind is being oppressed by unrightous rulers all over the world. This sun by the way is plagued by God in that he has decreed them wicked. To be destroyed per his heavenly government.

Also in revelation the governments of hte world are described as mutant wild beasts. They are vicious, violent, there is that word again, and bloodthirsty. they eat their own children too symbolically speaking. so violence is all around us, we just need to recognize it. we are so desenstized to this stuff. Much of what I see due ot bible training is violence on a grand scale in the name of peace or safty. Building permits, licenses to have a business, licenses to work (social security number) invisible contracts that they apply against people without justification or right.  Whenever a city or county imposes codes and regulations on people without a bonifide contract then you have violence again. using the ignorance of people to understand real law as opposed to legal or illegal and enforcing codes and regulations they have no lawful basis for. Shame is the name of the one who commits violence against their neighbor.

Homelessness is also being criminalized. homeless are having what little they have taken away they are pushed out and pushed away, I remember a video of officers tearing down tents and taking them and pushing the homeless people out. Sad really people need to live somewhere and where they were was a public place, not harming anyone. not like they camped out on someones yard.  What is even more violent about the whole thing is that the earth belongs to Jehovah, it belongs to the creator and no human has a right to push people off the land when they are harming no one else. what is the point of having the commons or public areas for all to use when only selected alls are allowed to use it? it is for the homeless to is it not? as long as they are not being trashy and not harassing people? Why not provide basic services like a restroom to them for a toilet and bath? The rulers of this world spend trillions on corporate welfare and wars and their preparation and on their own pocket books surly they can afford to take some fo that and help the homeless have some basic amenties?

now if the homeless are drunk and high on drugs they need to be in a place where they cannot get access to them to clean them up. Please remember to that many use drugs and giving them money as a hand out is not a good idea, you enable their behavior, give clothes or food instead. direct them to a shelter if there is one. Many on drugs dont use shelters because they are not allowed to use drugs or being high while there.

of course there more evidence of violence being done that people dont recognize as such, this is due to lack of education and ignorance on what right and wrong is, what good and bad is, what is law what is not stuff like that. The rulers are guilty of fraud, (constructive fraud) theft on a grand scale, and murder. And the people who do not respect right and wrong and good and bad from Gods standpoint who support said rulers or legalism are too guilty of violence too. They support the “sun” by voting, by praising them, by advocating for them etc. now many of these rulers dont think of themselves are wicked or violent but htey are. perception and reality are quite different.

I personally think the time is right for devine intervention, the signs are all there, the prophecies fullfilled just waiting for that final push. But do many recognize this? nope, Just as the days of noah were the day of the son of man will be, they were eating drinking men marrying building etc and too no note, no note of what? the signs of the times, the evidence that God was starting to intervene, what signs? noahs preaching and teaching, the protection he received from god to keep those nephilim from murdering him, ability to build a ark no one knew about before, the ability to bring animals in who came on their own he did not have to go get them,  the evidences was there but they took no note, they did not want to be bothered wiht making adjustments to their lifestyles (sound familiar?) eVen tho they complained and were frightened by the violence, again much violence was not so obvious, no doubt the nephlim and materialized angels were not murdering adn killing all the time, mostly they were partying all the time getting drunk,high and having sex. something that seems normal for consenting adults. Kind of like today. They were killing animals for food no doubt very cruely but many probably did not recognize that as violent, I am sure there is alot more.

And the victims of this violence were not all violent themselves they no doubt felt secure that god would not destroy them since they were victims not perpetuators of this violence. But they did not show faith in God nor obedience to his requirements hence they lost out.

I do hope this post was informative and educational.  Time for this world is running out, the signs are there, you know the old saying when the sky is calm and peaceful the storm is not far away, or something like that, that calm before the storm.

the pure language

language is what you and I have to communicate, when we can’t communicate nothing is accomplished not even understanding, peace, friendship or spiritural or technological or medical or progress in sciences and innovation that benefits us all. when we can’t communicate and wish to we need a interperter, so if I want to learn about spanish I ask someone who speaks it and can speak english too so they can teach me. wouldn’t you?

so if you want to understand the bible you must understand it’s language otherwise your lost and will not benefit from the bible. I have found understanding it’s language to be exciting because then you can see the physical manifestation of it’s words prophecies and fruitages of its counsel.I have found in my ministry that people are confused by alot of the defintions of words in the bible, and understanding the prophecies and symbolisms.

I want to share some terms and defintions of what we as Jehovah’s wintesses have learned through heavy research and some serious prayer.  it is important if you can to have more than one version of the bible, like king james or new world translation or new standard or some other bible you have confidence in to reference.

I found there is confusion due to the word “coming” which many are saying they are waiting for Jesus second coming. some translations interpret the word “parasia” not sure of the exact spelling as coming, which actually means of the age or presence, matt 24:3 which conveys the idea of a long period of time not a coming and quick departure. He gave us a long list of things to look for and part of this included him casting satan to the earth before armegeddon which means he has to stay in heaven to do this. if you read this list you will see that much work has to be done before Christs millianium reign can begin.

What is a Kingdom? anyone going to look up this word in a dictionary and not take my word for it? a kingdom is a government, and a government has subjects, a ruler, and administrator of the kingdoms purposes. So I ask you how can you have a government in your heart? Paul spoke about being part of this government as he said he ran successfully and was looking forward to going to heaven to be a coruler with christ. Rather Jesus referred himself as in their midst he was future king and was in the people’s midst at that time not that a kingdom is in our hearts. REvelation 14:1-3. Dan 2:1-44, Revelation 21:3-4 matthew 6:9-10

I will keep the rest brief, here are some interesting terms and defintions to help you get more out of your bible reading.

waters: people in general, information or facts or lack there of, rebellious humans, isaiah 57:20, jude 4-13. Ephesians 5:26 Revelation 17:1,15

I know there is confusion too about the scripture at 2 peter 3:10-13 which describes the heavens and earth being made new and the old being destroyed. now remember if you read something in the bible it must not conflict with other scriptural references somewhere else in the bible, because if you read ecclesiates 1:4 it says the earth will remain forever, and psalms 46 talks about the earth changing and the mountains toppling into the sea (now i ask you do you think the literal mountains toppled into the sea?) one part says he raised his voice and the earth melted, so i ask you again did the earth go anywhere did it melt? also genesis 11:1 spoke of hte earth as having one language and one set of words,does the earth have a language? don’t people have a language and sets of words? this new earth is rightous people, earth that is destroyed is wicked people. Remember the scritpure in revelation about the sea being no more? they used this phrase in the movie the titanic when they were all hanging onto the priest guy and he was quoting the scriptures in a prayer,he said the sea is no more, remember isaiah said in 57:20 the wicked are like the sea that is unable to calm down, it is this sea the scripture is talking about. AWWW dont you just love bible language.

there is alot more like rocks, caves, ships, burning mountain, water turned to blood, and serpents seed, new jerusalum (most of these are found in revelation. Plagues is another. I would go over them now but I do not want to overwhelm everyone and I am tired, fighting off a stupid sinus infection and it is taking antibiotics a few days to really get it cleared up. right now suffering a terrible headache to go with it. but hopfully for those who love the bible this will be interesting reading the sited scriptures you all can go to jw.org too for more.

 

awww outer banks vacation gone bust

unfortnantly we cut our vacation short, I was just so bored, my hubby couldn’t get to any fishing spots, even the private piers were closed due to federal consessions, whatever that means,  we had no access to refuges, swimming holes, beach access was by some parking on side of road or private access which we had permission to use, we couldn’t do anything we had planned and on top of that my monthly decided to pay a visit, could’t of been a worst time for it. no hiking swimming or fishing or bird watching I was only able to get a few pictures, I spent most of the time sitting around the hotel room trying to figure out where to go and what to do. so we just left.

big bummer, frankly I don’t know what the people in governments’ problem is, they simply do not understand who really owns nature.  taxpayers paid for the access roads yet they forget it is not their money. but I guess that is the nature of power, you lose touch with reality and live in a world of delusions. I do have a few pictures to show.

milky way galaxy

 

I had watched an animation of how our solar system is situated in the milky way galaxy, and how the sun moves at incredible speed (132 miles per second) dragging us along, and how our sun revolves around it’s own sun which then revolves around its own sun, and how long that takes solar system to go complely around the galaxy about 122 billion years, (wow, talk about a long time!!!!!)can you imagine if you were on a space ship going 11 millions miles a day? wow, you could really cover some distance in no time, but really with regard to the galaxy and universe that is like going down the street in real time and distance. The producer of the video likened our sun to a comet with our planets revolving around in a vortex like sprial rather then circle.

And when I looked at the milky way galaxy and where our solar system was I was flabergasted at how tiny we were in relation to sirus, the center sun, and to the milky way galaxy itself. WOW!!!! And it is amazing that there are millions of other galaxies out there that are even bigger so I have been told. why do I bring this up? Well I have been watching and reading so much stuff from everyone to economists, scientists, to political anaylstes, to enviromental “experst”, to free will thinkers and philosphers you name it I have watched or read it. And I got to thinking after all the stuff I disagreed and agreed, I realized something that really puts it all into perspective.

We are incredily tiny, I mean really tiny, we have no idea how tiny we are in relation to all these forces in our world. The sun, sirus, the galaxy, the suns speed thorugh the universe, the distances we can’t even imagine, the powerful forces we can’t see like magnetism, gravity and proton belts and the whole works.

So when I think about all the stuff I have learned, mans attempts to solve the big problems of the world thorugh their ideas, some even using the power of the state (it’s military, police, lawmaking etc) and money I am taken aback at the arrogance we have, some without knowing it, to think we can solve big problems of wars, death, poverty, climate changes, desertification, forest management, water management, injustice, simply by giving power to another group calling themselves government, and using a few tools designed by scientists and researchers like cloud seeding, changing the amount of a trace gas like co2, or controling the weather in ways to avert perceived disasters or population control, increasing buaracracies, and forcing policy and rules on people for the sake of some problem when they don’t even understand the problem, the physics and how everything was designed, and cant even see beyond our own surroundings or know the difference between a truth and a lie, between justice and injustice, or between moral rights and wrongs and are on this planet a short time, and unable to even control our own thoughts very well, how in the name of anything sensible can we think we can do anything to alter these forces when we can’t even keep ourselves from dying or getting sick?

what has possessed even scientists and researchers who can see alot more about the forces of nature then us who can see the design, complexity, and the minimal impact we have on controling them, to even think they can control even the most rudimentary physical laws, let alone a complex system like the earth’s climate, land and water use, and massive problems humans have faced for thousands of years? wouldnt it be prudent to recognize our limitations and the need for something greater than ourselves? wouldnt it be good to humble ourselves and ask for help? Should we not now see the importance of jesus words when he said pray this way (our father in the heavens may your name be santified (hallowed) let your kingdom come, let your will take place as in heaven also upon the earth.)?

what say you?
