The End is Near

The word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows, “Son of man, say,
The Lord Yahweh says this to the land of Israel: Finished! The end is
coming for the four quarters of the land. Now all is over with you; I
mean to unleash my anger on you, and judge you as your conduct deserves and
force you to answer for all your filthy practices. I mean to show you no pity,
I will not spare you; I am going to call you to account for your conduct and for
the filthy practices that you parade; and so you will learn that I am Yahweh.
The Lord Yahweh says this: Now disaster is going to follow on disaster. The end is coming, the end is coming for you; it is coming now. Now, it is
your turn, you who live in this country. The time has come, the day is near; no
joy now, only tumult, on the mountains. Soon I am going to pour out my
fury on you and exhaust my anger at you; I will judge you as your conduct
deserves and call you to account for all your filthy practices. I mean to show you
neither pity nor mercy, since I am going to call you to account for your conduct
and for the filthy practices which you parade; and so you will learn that I am
Yahweh, and that I strike.
Here is the day! It has come; your turn has come, the scourge is ready, pride H is at its peak. Violence has risen to become the scourge of wickedness . . . The
time has come and the day is near. Let neither buyer rejoice, nor seller regret,
for anger rages against all alike. The seller will not recover what he has sold;
they will all carry on sinning and be none the stronger for it. The trumpet will
sound, all will be ready; but no one will go into battle, since my anger rages
against all alike.'”

Ezekiel 7:1-14

The Fulfillment of the Law

“Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have
come not to abolish but to complete them. I tell you solemnly, till heaven
and earth disappear, not one dot, not one little stroke, shall disappear from
the Law until its purpose is achieved. Therefore, the man who infringes even
one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will
be considered the least in the kingdom of heaven; but the man who keeps them
and teaches them will be considered great in the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 5:17-19

Faithfulness to the Law is a Condition of God’s Aid

“Be strong and stand firm, for you are the man to give this people possession of the land that I swore to their fathers I should give to them. Only be strong and stand firm and be careful to keep all the Law which my servant Moses laid on you. Never swerve from this to right or left, and then you will be happy in all you do. Have the book of this Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may carefully keep everything that is written in it. Then you will prosper in your dealings, then you will have success. Have I not told you: Be strong and stand firm? Be fearless then, be confident, for go where you will, Yahweh your God is with you.”

Joshua 1:6-9

The Man

The man was a young boy once, and immersed himself in all what others. He played Star Wars with school-desks made Millenium Falcon, where he always wanted rather to be Luke than Chewbacca or at least Han. He used to push bugs and looked at them, bought flowers because it was told to be the way for asking a classmate out at the age of six. Sometimes he roamed around protected whom he thought had to be.
Also, he was wandering in the endless walls of a burdened world. He started to see the cracking in his nightmares which he thought to be normal dreams, which only turned out to be different with others.
He used to be scared and frightened by nukes and early, unrighteous endings of the world he only knew from books, music and later rare TV and movies. For him the muppets were as close as far for the most surrounding him. He couldn’t swim but never drowned in the flood.

Time to time, he was on the surface and resonated. He did not know it was the Universe, God or parallel realities, it was like to be awaken. During those periods time and space seemed to expand till disappeared and only a cognition remained, an unnamed unity and resonance.

Eras and eons passed by. The man who once was a boy disappeared. Followed patterns, sank into vanity and was lost in a purposeless maze. Rarely, he came back to the surface, then, he just felt desperate and immediately chose the suffocating blob accumulated in his soul and cells, the life-deceiving agony.

As he grew, he did not mature. Instead, he seemed to vaporize in the thin air. He was one in a trillion. Then he died.

Reincarnation was something quite else than in the books. He did not incarnate into a worm, a deer or a young baby. He was in the same body, same age when he passed away. However, this time he knew, felt, sensed everything he had done as they were happening again and again, all at once, yet separately. Time and space differed again, and he was in the loneliest place in the galaxy. He felt nobody recognized his absence and his return, connecting to him as he was still in a coma. He couldn’t wake up from his life.

It was God who saved him.
He didn’t know it though. Or at least not at first.

He was like a broken machine, a soulless mind. His heart was broken.
Little, tiny steps of grace and unexpected love by others who were without any particular reason to give. The man was grateful to these people. Like a reinstalled robot he started to adopt. It was a life more of commands but was a new life. Borders, boundaries unknown, burdens carried in an unspeakable clothe. He was tidy, unclean.

Probes, endeavors started. People came saying and showing his own failures in their lives. He wanted to save them. Each one of them, he felt unworthy to pray for them, so he offered his own unworthy life, health. He begged to inherit the curses freeing them this way. He was often unable to move, walk, speak, but his heart started to beat for each and every unknown he met on his journey. Then for others with whom he never met.

Eras and eons passed.

The man became more mature. Incomplete.

Sometimes, he feels he knows less from the final truth than ever. Other times he is wronged, misunderstood. Quite often he feels the pains in his teeth as he presses his lips not to say, not to preach. He struggles inside, frequently tidal waves question even his own existence. However, inside, somewhere in the middle, he is calm and relaxed. This tranquility is tested even by Heavenly Parent, to form his heart into a more resonating shape.

The man is alone. Enjoys his quest to find home for and with each and every one of you. To build the everlasting land of eternal values, virtues and absolute love.

The man who once was a boy asks you to come and build it, together.

 

Be Blessed and Be Blessing for Others!

SMM Quotes – 174

“When you become a man/woman of greater love then you can ring a greater bell of love, and in looking down from Heaven God will see that your light is the biggest and brightest. Such a light is far more beautiful than any diamond. You can be all kinds of bells, but above all you must become a bell of love. No other sound will reach the heart of God. What you will be held accountable for is how much you have shed your sweat and tears for love.” – Sun Myung Moon

Have I Been

Have I been lonely,
have I been brave,
have I been tortured,
have I been lame

Have I been bright,
and doomed again,
Have I been right
and wronged, again,

Have I struggled
through many nights,
Have I been betrayed
like kings of days and nights?

Have I been deaf
for desperate cries
Have I been immune
for the unspeakable with the times?

Have I been lost
and been somewhere
abandoned, outcast,
no-one cared?

I proved my existence
with love through all of these
perseverance
and forgiven grief.

Have I been here
for you and for them
Have I been there
as a pathfinder

I might have been wrong
choosing this life
Yet I can see
where there is no light

should have come

Where are your gods you made for yourself?

The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,

‘Go and shout this in Jerusalem’s ears: ‘Yahweh says this: “I remember your faithful love, the affection of your bridal days, when you followed me through the desert, through a land unsown.

Israel was sacred to Yahweh; the first-fruits of his harvest; all who ate this incurred guilt, disaster befell them, Yahweh declares.” ‘

Listen to Yahweh’s word, House of Jacob and all the families of the House of Israel.

Yahweh says this, ‘What did your ancestors find wrong in me for them to have deserted me so far as to follow Futility and become futile themselves?

They never said, “Where is Yahweh, who brought us out of Egypt and led us through the desert, through a land of plains and ravines, through a land of drought, of shadow dark as death, a land through which no one passes and where no human being lives?”

I brought you to a country of plenty, to enjoy its produce and good things; but when you entered you defiled my country and made my heritage loathsome.

The priests never asked, “Where is Yahweh?” Those skilled in the Law did not know me, the shepherds too rebelled against me and the prophets prophesied by Baal and followed the Useless Ones.

So I must state my case against you once more, Yahweh declares, and state my case against your children’s children:

Cross to the isles of the Kittim and look, send to Kedar and carefully observe, see if anything like this has happened before!

Does a nation change its gods? – and these are not gods at all! Yet my people have exchanged their Glory for the Useless One!

You heavens, stand aghast at this, horrified, utterly appalled, Yahweh declares.

For my people have committed two crimes: they have abandoned me, the fountain of living water, and dug water-tanks for themselves, cracked water-tanks that hold no water.

‘Is Israel a slave? Was he born into serfdom, for him to be preyed on like this?

Lions have roared at him, they have made their voices heard. They have left this country a desert, his towns lie burnt and uninhabited.

The people of Noph and Tahpanhes have shaved your skull!

Have you not brought this on yourself, by abandoning Yahweh your God, when he was guiding you on your way?

What is the good of going to Egypt now to drink the water of the Nile? What is the good of going to Assyria to drink the water of the River?

Your wickedness will bring its own punishment, your infidelities will bring you to book, so give thought and see how evil and bitter it is to abandon Yahweh your God and not to stand in awe of me, the Lord Yahweh Sabaoth declares.

‘It is long ago now since you broke your yoke, burst your bonds and said, “I will not serve!” Yet on every high hill and under every green tree you have sprawled and played the whore.

Yet I had planted you, a red vine of completely sound stock. How is it you have turned into seedlings of a vine that is alien to me?

Even though you scrub yourself with soda and put in quantities of soap, the stain of your guilt would still be visible to me, the Lord Yahweh declares.

How dare you say, “I am not defiled, I have not run after the Baals?” Look at your behaviour in the Valley, realise what you have done.

A wild she-donkey, at home in the desert, snuffing the breeze in desire; who can control her when she is on heat? Males need not trouble to look for her, they will find her in her month.

Beware! Your own foot will go unshod, your own throat grow dry! But you said, “It is no use! No! For I love the Strangers and they are the ones I shall follow.”

‘Like a thief ashamed at being caught, so will the House of Israel be: they, their kings, their chief men, their priests and their prophets,

who say to a piece of wood, “You are my father,” and to a stone, “You gave birth to me.” For they turn to me their backs, never their faces; yet when trouble comes they shout, “Get up! Save us!”

Where are your gods you made for yourself? Let them get up if they can save you when trouble comes! For you have as many gods as you have towns, Judah!

Why make out a case against me? You have all rebelled against me, Yahweh declares.

In vain I have struck your children, they have not accepted correction; your own sword has devoured your prophets like a marauding lion.

Now you of this generation, listen to what Yahweh says: Have I been a desert for Israel, or a land of gloom? Why do my people say, “We are our own masters, we will come to you no more”?

Does a girl forget her ornaments, a bride her sash? And yet my people have forgotten me, days beyond number.

‘How well you set your course in pursuit of love! And so you have schooled your ways to wicked deeds.

The very skirts of your robe are stained with the blood of the poor, of innocent men you never caught breaking and entering! And in spite of all this,

you say, “I am innocent, let his anger turn from me!” Now I pass sentence on you for saying, “I have not sinned.”

‘How frivolously you undertake a change of course! But you will be disappointed by Egypt just as you were by Assyria.

You will have to leave there too with your hands on your head, for Yahweh has rejected those that you rely on, you will come to no good with them.’

Jeremiah 2:1-37

Rid yourselves of all spite, deceit, hypocrisy, envy and carping criticism

Rid yourselves, then, of all spite, deceit, hypocrisy, envy and carping criticism.

Like new-born babies all your longing should be for milk -the unadulterated spiritual milk- which will help you to grow up to salvation,

at any rate if you have tasted that the Lord is good.

He is the living stone, rejected by human beings but chosen by God and precious to him; set yourselves close to him

so that you, too, may be living stones making a spiritual house as a holy priesthood to offer the spiritual sacrifices made acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 2:1-5
