Selected Posts March-May 2017

Later on..

I have tried to consume a 1200 calorie a day diet.  However, that has been more difficult than I thought.  I would usually write this down in another blog, but I realize that it will be okay to write in this blog as well.  I do complain a lot and I was just too tired to fill in anything.  As you can tell from reading this, I am just too tired.  My brain hurts.  I will be okay though.

Personal interpretation of Deuteronomy 12:1-4
  1“These are the statutes and the judgments which you shall carefully observe in the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you to possess as long as you live on the earth. 2“You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations whom you shall dispossess serve their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. 3“You shall tear down their altars and smash their sacred pillars and burn their Asherim with fire, and you shall cut down the engraved images of their gods and obliterate their name from that place. 4“You shall not act like this toward the LORD your God."

I have not only shown respect to the Lord by the way I was acting.  I didn't realize that idolatry was a sin that I have committed.  I have since repented of that sin.  I didn't realize that allowing myself to be caught up in the things of the world would constitute idolatry, but it doesn't.  Not spending enough time could be an example of idolatry.  I am very guilty of that form of idolatry.  My time like other idolaters has not been spent on the Lord, but on whoever or whatever is in the world.  That whoever and whatever was a high place that needed to be broken down.  The altars wasn't' in my house but in my mind.  That was not about anxiety, so I won't use that as an excuse.  It was about a choice that I made, which did in turn, cause even greater anxiety.  The Lord wants the divided attention of all of us, no matter where we are at.  My hope is that I am not misinterpreting the Word of God.  Being sacred is about being of God, not of the world.  I have not kept some things sacred and I have since repented of this.  I take full responsibility of my sins.  This I am writing because the Lord is Jealous and wants not just our worship, but our undivided attention. 

Prophecies about Jesus 

April 11, 2017

"From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life."
Matthew 16:21

"When they came together in Galilee, he said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men."
Matthew 17:22

"He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again."
Mark 8:31

"They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him."
Mark 10:32

"Who has believed what he has heard from us?1
And to whom has hthe arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 For he grew up before him like a young plant,
iand like a root out of dry ground;
jhe had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
3 kHe was despised and rejected2 by men,
a man of sorrows 3 and acquainted with4 grief;5
and as one from whom men hide their faces6
he was despised, and lwe esteemed him not.
4 mSurely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
nsmitten by God, and afflicted.
5 oBut he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
pand with his wounds we are healed.
6 qAll we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
rand the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
syet he opened not his mouth;
tlike a ulamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation, vwho considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
9 And they made his grave with the wicked
wand with a rich man in his death,
although xhe had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet yit was the will of the Lord to crush him;
he has put him to grief;7
zwhen his soul makes8 an offering for guilt,
he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
athe will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see9 and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall bthe righteous one, my servant,
cmake many to be accounted righteous,
dand he shall bear their iniquities.
12 eTherefore I will divide him a portion with the many,10
fand he shall divide the spoil with the strong,11
because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
gyet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors."
Isaiah 53:1-12

My overall view on music

March 31, 2007

I just have a deep love of music.  Who doesn't, but somehow music connects me to my problems and my emotions like nothing have.  I am trying to express why music is something I get lost in.  I sometimes listen to music when the mood hits me.  However, music makes me normal.  Being bipolar, there is always this line between what is normal and what is not.  It bridges things like emotions, thoughts, and what is going on in the world.  I am so glad that there is such thing as music.
