The subtlety of glory

Soooo, late last night while looking UP at a clear star star-studded sky, and while observing the timeless design and perfectly patterned glittering diamonds of light, I saw a ‘shooting’ star, so bright, so eventful, so demure in its quickness, but so endearing in its significance, I immediately said this:

‘O Lord, Thou art good, Thy glory is obvious, help me promote Thy glory.’ So I’m doing it, now.

Yes, instinctive thoughts upon seeing that laser of glory. But you may say, how so is that glorious? Ha! What else is there? Accidental serendipity? The erosion of light bulbs? Global warming? A spectacle by the hands of NASA engineers? An edict by Musk? No, I’ll have none of it thank you very much.

A light. Blazing across the sky. Not random at all. If I did not see it, if no one saw it, the Creator would have received as much pleasure, for by His pleasure they are and were created. ‘They.’ As in, all things wherein man cannot take credit for. But you may say, ‘heck, these shooters have been going on since forever.’ Yes, good observation Sherlock, as God never sleeps.

Happens so quick doncha know. One hundreth of a second or less? Doesn’t matter, but its’ a display meant to be seen.

But we have become so numb to such glory because of politics, sports, entertainment, violence, lousy religions, work, and all other distractions, (then there is the theft of our minds through covid) that we fail to see and admit the OBVIOUS.

That there is One. Highest above all. He towers above all Babel and Burj makers, He towers high above all babblers, whose tongues flap but say nothing. He is Highest above the self-made elite, He shuts the mouths of fools by such dazzling displays of night works, as He orders a light this way, and sends one that way. His glory is OBVIOUS.

Can’t wait to hear any lame challenge to what is so darn obvious. Better yet, how many will agree?

True appreciation

Any guesses? C’mon, hit me with your best shot. And if you think you are certain, do explain the wide reaching parameters.

Especially now with election mania, how about something normal.

Ran across this……

Saw this today out of nowhere. Watch the whole thing, consider the man’s background and areas of expertise. Watch how he answers other’s objections. Notice how matter-of-fact he presents his arguments. Tell me if he is reasonable, sane, professional, knowledgeable, and tell me if he is credible and raises valid concerns. Enjoy.

I am the greatest?

In years and years of blogging, no topic has been taboo, at least here, and having written countless posts on atheism, and (not bragging btw what’s coming next) still remaining undefeated in dismantling all commentary and arguments against the Creator, it is still effortless, causes no sweat, and suffice it to say, it is rather enjoying to watch, learn, and listen to the interplay with naysayers, many of whom are good people.

But you object to this ‘arrogance’ to say ‘having never lost an argument.’ No not really, but confidence and arrogance are not teammates. I am confident that coal, ice, gold, blood, birds, whales, streams, lakes, rivers, oceans, lions, giraffes, elephants, men, women, males, females, arithmetic, the sun, the moon, the stars, flowers, fauna, metallurgy, carpentry, geography, history, ALL speak to One above all.

Blood doesn’t have the brains to know it needs eyes to see what it never saw. A whitetail deer doesn’t design its own leather, knowing it needs protection from bitter cold it never experienced. Gold doesn’t grow underground the way potatoes do………… As I said, One above all.

It is the height of arrogance however to deny the Creator the courtesy of existing. This is the default position when men view history and their evil doings, then blame God for creating them. We forget that once upon a time, things were ‘very good.’ Hmmm, wonder what happened.

That big oaf Goliath of Gath claimed to be Ali, the original rope-a-doper. ‘C’mon you young punk, I’ll make mincemeat out of you,’ said the goon to the teen with a smooth stone in his left hand. A marksman was this David, olympic quality. Goliath, all meat and no brains. His arrogance was his downfall, as he was clueless in the might of the living God, truly not too smart. But take note of the crowd. David had no friends on either side, as he was mocked by Goliath’s team, and hands were over the eyes of David’s pals. Yep, a youngster all alone.

Alone in his thoughts, alone in his heart, but most importantly, alone with the living God. In this was his rock of strength. The contrast could not be clearer, even today on WP. The atheist while not necessarily lying, is still deceived by himself, and the artificial strength of knowledge and that mighty other god ‘science.’ See, Goliath was also a scientist of sorts, seeing the ‘evidence’ before him in his so unworthy opponent, as he stood heads and shoulder above, and as he towered high above David, he calculated this young stripling was nothing but junk mail.

As an equal opportunity offender, it’s worth noting that they who should have stood side by side with David, did not. They hid their faces as it were, waiting to pick up the latest casualty by the enemies of Israel, and waiting perhaps to surrender themselves. Thus began the rise of King David, a man after God’s heart. Where are these men today???

Yet David made no claim to be the greatest, as this was the language of fools, no arrogance, but my oh my, he excelled in confidence. So atheism is the religion of arrogance in a nutshell, with decent people just being stubborn, being immune to their exaggerated importance, not considering that even a maggot has as much a right to life as they, and that the Creator has all rights to end life at any time for no reason. Grace is then a good word today yes?

If a person read God’s word honestly, without the crutches of other’s opinions, without the aid of sceptics clever but meaningless attempts at contradictions (there are none), if it was read as a WHOLE, if it was read as it was meant to be read, the inevitable conclusion would be: ‘yes, things revealed impossible to have been known by men, spoken to the mind, heart, conscience, in a way no other tool could reach, written to the intellect from Genesis graduating to Revelation like a school journey, building upon facts, knowledge, experience, with language changing from simple kindergarten to university level, proving without a doubt only the Divine hand could orchestrate such grandeur.’

And note, I did not even mention that lousy word science in this indictment. There is plenty if we would pay attention and cease the insults like Goliath of old. So to the atheist regulars, tkx for hanging around, but 9′ men do not impress me. And to the believer, have a little more patience with the goliaths of ignorance.

Some things never change

Amazing isn’t it, how evolution cannot erase the written word, and how the incomparable rainbow in the sky is testament to the goodness and promises of Almighty God.

The rainbow may have been high jacked by the lbjqbvd crowd, and it may have been delegated to the ‘pretty sight and tolerant of everything’ symbol, but rest assured, God does not sleep.

He does not lie, and His memory is pretty exacting. Sure, things are obviously decadent, but things are also very good, it’s just that the good does not get press coverage. Crime sells tickets, and crash sites get tv coverage.

But the rainbow! That peerless reminder and jaw dropping sight- that One is greater than all, and that no amount of alleged ‘global warming’ (see there’s that problem of that globe thing anyway) can summarily dismiss the edicts of heaven.

‘I WILL LOOK UPON THE RAINBOW, and remember……’ says the Creator. Do we get this? It’s not just enough for Timmy and Tammy to say ‘ooh look mom, how pretty….’ nope, the One who tends to the night light, aka the moon, places that combination of the molten looking glass with rain, to confirm His word. But remember what?

Tkx for asking. You have most certainly seen what a few minutes of downpour can do. But 40 days and forty nights of torrential water from above and beneath? Yep, that can be a problem…. But today, wherein God, who is RICH in mercy……

Evolution and all naysayers cannot be happy about this reminder and will continue to excuse, avoid, and explain away what is so d&@m obvious, and put forth Science!! as the great author, owner, and sustainer of such glory.

Yep, thank the idiotic Big Bang for this busted logic. I soo loved seeing this the other night, and I trust your affections are stirred as well. Yet, the proud will remain proud, the stubborn will remain stubborn, and they with good eyesight will see and agree that God is still good, and He keeps His promises.

Have issue with any of this? Well, wise up then.

It’s just a little lie right?

The 3-year-old kid has a mouth dripping with chocolate while holding the candy bar behind his back- Mom says: ‘Did you take the chocolate?’ Junior looks at the ground then at her and says ‘noooooo Mom.’

No big deal right? Just a small fib. But WHY does Junior feel the need to cover up his enjoyment? Thousands of reasons no doubt, but I have the better question which reveals so much more.

Who taught him to lie having never had a lesson?

Which brings me to this. The good ladyinsanitybytes22 https://insanitybytes2.wordpress.com/2022/09/09/humility-is-strength/comment-page-1/#comment-141390

wrote a post re. pride and humility, which naturally brought excellent comments, with some including the trappings of Satan. That’s a direction of travel so few dare to go, and maybe rightly so, but nonetheless, the conversation guarantees loaded thoughts from many fronts.

Back to lies. Satan is a liar. He is the father of lies. Ouch. So Junior inadvertently honoured the age-old master by doing something that comes natural, something that dairy cows or eagles cannot do. Something distinctly human. Lying is proof of the human condition, a twitch in the system, a hiccup as it were, a built-in form of protection.

Remember Abraham lied re. Sarah by saying she was his sister? Some say his faith was weak by not trusting God to protect him by simply telling the truth. You decide. But there is something far greater to consider, and that concerns God. Can He lie? Does He hide the chocolate behind His back to protect His image? Should He lie to protect weak people from themselves?

Satan is a liar. God is TRUTH. His WAY is light not darkness. There is no darkness at all in God the Father of lights. Simply put, there is a huge difference between being able to lie, and choosing not to…………and……..being unable to lie. Do we get this?

God. Cannot. Lie. It is not in His makeup; it is not in His backbone. It is not in the Constitution of the throne of heaven. There is no lie which dwells in Light. God cannot lie. Do I need to point out the singular text that proves this, or is the entire warp and woof of scripture enough?

God is not able to lie. He cannot choose NOT to lie as if there was tension in a choice. God is impeccably perfect, and furthermore, the Lord Jesus Christ exemplified truth at every turn, and because of this, found a final resting place on that central tree. ‘Away with him.’ The light of truth is too penetrating, so much so, that even Pilate muttered under his breath: ‘what is truth……………………’ as if it were a passing though of irrelevance, not even noticing that the Truth was mute before him.

Is it any wonder that we read: ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. But we understand why Junior tried to cover his tracks, don’t we…

A most annoying catch phrase

You have heard it I’m sure. It is rather popular in our media and ‘star’ infested networks, and when muttered, there is supposed to be a ‘you heard it first here, so listen up, this is important.’

John Depp after the verdict. Buzz Aldrin on his moon mission. Elon Musk regarding aliens. Tiger Woods after his car crash. Ellen D on the death of Ann H. Neil Tyson on space travel. So what do these people and the annoying phrase have in common?

They broke their silence……..

and finally spoke and gave their endearing opinion. Pleze. Yeah ok, they were mute for ages eh? They havn’t said a word and lived like monks in the desert. They have vows of chastity and speech. Pleze.

They did not ‘break their silence,’ as there was just not a convenient time for them to rattle off their spin on this or that. ‘News at eleven, Herman Munster breaks his silence about Lily’s spongecake.’ This is about as relevant as anybody supposedly ‘breaking their silence.’ Can’t stand it.

But surely you paid attention up top as a clue was given WHY these ‘breaks on muteness’ have teeth and an audience. The networks are infested with ‘stars.’ And of course, by association, you WANT to be on the know, FIRST, as to what star thinks of this or that, meaning, these people deserve to be heard and taken seriously.

For God’s sake, T. Woods was not even charged with speeding. If that was you rolling a car, the police would be waiting in ICU to serve you up with something that will cost you dearly. So, call me bitter, call me jealous, call me cynical, but I do. not. care. when Ellen D. ‘breaks her silence,’ and finally speaks on whatever to whoever.

Infestations of irrelevance I tell ya.

So the next time you hear that phrase, ‘he broke his silence.’ or stay tuned, ‘she broke her silence………’ send a wink and a smile my way.

The finest five words ever written

You can cite your favorites, I’m sure. You can draw from poetry, literature, history, the arts, family, business, architecture, carpentry, proverbs, autobiographies, sports, television, radio, and a host of sources where inspiration sings to you.

Photo by Cliford Mervil on Pexels.com

We draw interest from personal experiences and personality unique to ourselves which help us clarify what possibly could be these ‘five words.’ My bias is built upon the solid fact that I cannot recall NOT looking into the daily night sky.

Therefore, these five words are poetic in nature, they reveal a simple demurity so unlike the pride of life, and the majestic implications speak of eternal goodness and outright humility. These words demolish false science and show a depth of thought impossible to comprehend in its’ entirety. These words are ravaging to the theoretic goliaths of cosmic insignificance, and on the upside, these words speak to the heart in truth so easy to understand.

These words? Tkx for asking. And oh as an aside……….

He made the stars also.

(gee I wonder where the source is for this…….

your five?)

Love this science pic?

This is precisely WHY I detest modern ‘science.’ This was promoted as a Webb telescope image by a so-called French scientist as a distant ‘star,’ when in fact it was a mere slice of chorizo. a sausage. This ‘stunt’ he alleges- he wanted people to be wary of false images on the web. Hmmm. Maybe he was simply caught.

If humor is the delicacy of the day in the science world, perhaps there have been more manipulative ‘lies’ then we care to imagine. Yes, there have been, and still continue. But more. Once the seed is planted in the mind as to these ‘spectacular images,’ the crayons cannot be put back in the box. They are melted beyond repair. The seeds of fraud are stamped on the mind, and so few care to remove them. Things uncomfortable are hard to face.

This ‘star’ is 6 bazillion light years away, hiding behind dark holes and other stuff ……..but look, we can see it today by the aid of telescopes. No. Telescopes only magnify stupidity when in the hands of circus clowns. I bet even Degrasse and Nye were on board with the air show.

Walt Disney would be proud. But I like the ever-relevant word of God: ‘Be wary of science falsely so-called.’ God’s word: 10. Science: 0

Folklore Christianity: Flat Earthers?

Why reblog? Because ib22 is fearless in discussing anything that is considered fringe by the masses. Her credibility is heightened and strengthened when she says ‘i don’t know.’

Nonetheless, many so-called leaders of ‘science’ refuse to engage the topic at all, citing the conversation as useless, which oddly enough, is the antithesis of true science, which welcomes all inquiry and demands evidence.

Personally, I stay away from the term FE, but I do like Fe as in ‘iron.’ But check out her site if you are unfamiliar, as there is a ton of legendary content.

See, there's this thing called biology...

First let me say, I am quite fond of several flat earthers. They have blessed me, taught me a lot of significant things. For one, just look at this little meme. How do you know if what you believe is a genuinely held belief, well reasoned, a matter of personal conscience and conviction, versus just believing in something because it’s popular and socially acceptable, and demanded of you?

Become a flat earther, you’ll find out real quick.

So I have a great deal of respect for anyone brave enough to question the narrative, to dare to suggest that perhaps we should think critically and ask some questions rather then simply complying with what we’ve been told and swallowing the narrative whole.

Ai yi yi, you have no idea how prophetic that notion has been over the past couple of years, but I digress. I’m just going to say one thing…

Just some good stuff. I love the host’s reactions as much as the content.

There are a zillion vids made inspired by Nathan Evans- and there are dance moves unique to the tune.

Try to listen to the whole thing. Puts a smile on your face and some pep on your step.

To all good mockers

Anybody who dismisses God’s word as unreliable, untruthful, irrelevant, a crutch for the weak, inaccurate, a collection of useless tales, behind the times, scientifically barren, or any other shortcoming or defect, then you, and I mean you, have an intellect the size of a pea, with apologies to all good vegetables.

I don’t care who you are, Harvard uneducated, the very finest public school, the schools for the deaf or blind, any school, no school, home school, don’t care if you are broke or woke, don’t care how many degrees, how many millions you have, how many boats, how many telescopes, how many animals, whatever, you indeed are at a mental deficit if you cannot comprehend the immeasurable value in the monarch of books, the book of books with no equal.

Thus, you are now being schooled properly.

Clouds. A big deal?

Yes, I do think so. Goes to the heart of where we live on this temporary home called earth.

These clouds were on display last week and I was immediately arrested by my eyes. Are you not as well even after the fact?

So not only are there waters above…… per the Creators prerogative, but these waters are drop dead gorgeous. The beauty is incomparable. The weight of glory is immeasurable.

I thank God. Who do you thank?

Some sandpaper for you

Why sandpaper? Well, it abrades and polishes depending on the grit. Dedicated to CTom, ARK, Zande, SOM, mike from books/ sklyd, and of course all others who appreciate evidence and facts.

Btw, you all can argue and complain with each other, so be careful of your alliances. Enjoy, and choose your sandpaper.

Punishing thought for the day

Does the atheistic brain hold the capacity to comprehend God, or is it forever delegated to the pits of ignorance? In other words, can light penetrate the darkness?

Short answer, yes. but there must first be a willingness to remove self from the exaggerated claims of self-importance and artificial intellect.

I’m from Missouri, show me

Well, not really, I’m not from that state, nor is it a lie, as it is simply a statement enjoyed by others, but yes, ‘show me’ a mistake in the book of Genesis, that masterful piece of history, geography, genealogy, anthropology, science, (true science that is) romance, decadence, spirituality, carnality, praise, curses, the unpleasantness of death, and so much more.

Show me an inaccuracy, an overstatement, a lie, something too incredible to believe, show me a fault in the text itself. Be careful though as not to bring forth something you just plain do not like. And while I’m here, SHOW ME one single source material that provides the correct origin of man, one that provides precise context for the dwelling and purposes of the sun and moon.

Show me another work where atheism is so easily defeated, where poetry and literature have no equal, and where the thoughts of men are reduced to rubble. Show me a source that records the greatest vice of men and their subsequent exaltations.

Show me one source that so eloquently speaks of the insect and beast. Show me one source that so elevates womanhood. Show me one place that explains apparent contradictions and why. Show me a source so full of mystery and awe. Show me a place where man’s mouth is stopped entirely.

Show me ONE work of reference that so encapsulates the learning, progression, and understanding of humanity that also includes man’s end of days. Show me ONE place wherein the contents of holy writ can be rightfully challenged.

Show me a defect worthy of discussion. Show me where the scriptures are not actual, factual, logical, and most reasonable. Show me where the divine trifecta of the compass, the level, and the plumbline have a challenger.

(Spoiler alert: many have tried, ALL have failed.)

What Is Wrong With Atheism?

My comment on original post/

Silence of Mind

First, what is the definition of atheism? According to Merriam-Webster: atheism is “a philosophical or religious position characterized by disbelief in the existence of a god or any gods.” That is correct. Atheism is a religious position. My experience with atheists is that they rave on and on about religion. Second, God is defined philosophically as the First Cause. Thus, without God, nothing exists.

Atheism is a catastrophic failure of reason because by denying the existence of the First Cause, atheists must believe that nothing exists, which is the stuff of straight jackets and rubber rooms. Or atheists must believe that everything just happened all by itself. Everything just happening all by itself is as obviously absurd as a gaggle of chimpanzees spending a few trillion years trying and finally succeeding in typing out the works of Shakespeare. One study found that chimpanzees bang on the keyboard for a little…

A quote for the ages

When asked what advice he would give to incoming college students, the always thoughtful David Berlinski said this without hesitation:

‘Read the Old Testament. It is the greatest repository of human knowledge and wisdom in the history of civilization, any culture, any time, any place.’

Love it. Because it is true.

Attention: To my faithful readers from every stripe and any worldview, offer your best reason and do tell a worldwide audience WHY you are, or are not, more significant than a maggot.

Go ahead, accept the challenge, but be careful now, as your words will be forever etched in time and history. I promise not to be unkind with any lame excuse.
