The Foundation of Success is a Heart Established in the Love of God

 

The "heart" is a figurative description of the undermining motivating driving force of a human being, the "real us" so to speak. The "heart" is not a costume, mask, set of bullet points or some other superficial, surface or outwardly manifested thing. The "heart" is the inner core, center of being, foundation and root of a human being.

In Proverbs we read...

Pro 3:1  My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

It is via the "heart" that one is implored to keep God's commandments. Consider that Jesus taught the first and greatest commandment was to "love the Lord thy God with ALL THEY HEART, and with ALL THY SOUL, and with ALL THEY MIND."

Mat 22:37  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 
Mat 22:38  This is the first and great commandment.

The second was then to "love they neighbour as thyself" and it was upon those two commandments which hung "ALL the law and the prophets."

Mat 22:39  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 
Mat 22:40  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. 

In other words, the central theme of the law (ie. God's rules) and the prophets (ie. admonition to forsake evil and follow God's rules) is the fundamental principle of the "real us" being our "inner core, center of being, foundation and root" TRULY being established in the love of God.

The consequence of this, in the context of "cause and effect" would be...

Pro 3:2  For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

This is because a life lived in accordance with genuine love produces good fruit. Diligent, productive and responsible living with an eye out for the well being of others. Benefits like optimal health due to responsible self care (ie. healthy diet and exercise). The benefits of good relationships due being patient, honest and caring. The benefits of being productive a productive member of society due to good work ethic, not injuring others, and always moving forward. The benefits of being a good example to others in that when things go wrong or are difficult one remains positive, hopeful and thus is NEVER defeated by the trials and tribulations of life.

A "long life" is certainly is certainly not definitive in the context of every individual but it is certainly definitive in the context of a general theme. Healthy and responsible living results in better outcomes and unhealthy and irresponsible living. Therefore a life rooted in a foundation of God's law (genuine love) is profitable.

The Apostle Paul summed it up in these words...

"Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you." Apostle Paul, Philippians 4:4-9

With that in mind contemplate on the wise words of Proverbs chapter 3... 

Pro 3:1  My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: 
Pro 3:2  For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 
Pro 3:3  Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 
Pro 3:4  So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. 
Pro 3:5  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 
Pro 3:6  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 
Pro 3:7  Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 
Pro 3:8  It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

Bully Legislation in Victoria, Australia

<<<Change or suppression practices (also known as conversion practices) are any practices directed at an individual that attempt to change or suppress a person's sexual orientation or gender identity.

These are practices which have no basis in medicine; there is no evidence that sexual orientation or gender identity can be changed. Not only are these practices ineffective, they are deeply harmful and can cause long-term mental health issues and, in the most tragic of cases, suicide. >>> https://engage.vic.gov.au/changeorsuppression

So let me get this right.

The claim is that there is no evidence that "sexual orientation" or "gender identity" can be changed. If that is true then on what basis do people change their identity in the first place according to these people?

If a biological male or female chooses to identify as the opposite sex of what they identified as previously then has not a "change in identity" occurred? If so, then how can it be stated that there is "no evidence" that sexual identity can be changed?

The implied logic is that one can "change their identity" and at the same time "not change their identity." Forked tongue irrational and illogical double-speak.

It's simply the old "heads I win and tails you lose" scam.

Here is another quote...

<<<affirm that no sexual orientation or gender identity constitutes a disorder, deficiency, or shortcoming, and that a person's particular sexual orientation or gender identity is not broken or in need of fixing; and>>>
https://content.legislation.vic.gov.au/.../591143exi1.pdf

So the claim is that no sexual orientation or gender identity constitutes a disorder, deficiency or shortcoming and thus there is no need of any fixing. If that is true then what is the explanation for the people BEFORE they change their orientation? Was there a disorder, deficiency or shortcoming then that needed fixing?

It's not only a case of certain people wanting their cake and to eat it too. It's also a case of them wanting to shove their irrational, contradictory, illogical, forked tongue cake down everyone's else's throats.

Centralised power is very dangerous because it allows the empowerment of dangerous power hungry bully oriented and often irrational people.

Limiting government power allows for decentralised power where individuals can make their own value judgments and decision according to their own conscience. Government ought be strictly limited to protecting life, liberty and property and of course necessary LOCAL regulations as deemed necessary by a LOCAL community.When power is local there is much more accountability then when it is distant.

Remember it is a zoo that requires a zoo keeper, not a moral and upright people. When people act like animals (ie. anything goes/unrestrained conduct) then all sorts of problems manifest in society thus leading to authoritarian control being justified to fix the manifest problems. Yet an unrestrained animal like society will elect unrestrained animal like representatives whom will certainly abuse authoritarian power and the result will ALWAYS be tyranny and despotism. Both history and logic is evidence of this.

We'll either be governed by God (ie. genuine love - 1Jn 4:16) or we'll be governed by tyrants (consnider the Prophet Samuel's warning below). It looks like the State of Victoria in Australia has chosen to elect tyrants.

How about where you live?



"And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world." Apostle John, 1John 4:16-17, Holy Bible

"Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king. And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day." Prophet Samuel, 1Samuel 8:5-18, Holy Bible

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Apostle Paul, Galatians 6:7-9, Holy Bible

Redefining History

"Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.” George Orwell


The linked CNN article is a good read, not because it is truthful but because it basically outlines a future of the United States as a "woke nation divided into separate identities" wherein the government provides "racial sensitivity training" educating people about "white privilege" and "critical race theory." Of course, those whom oppose such a future are labelled as "racists." It's nothing more than Marxist dialectical manipulation via the means of dividing people into separate "unequal" groups necessitating an increase in "central planning" and the associated "centralised power" in order to make things "equal."

The CNN article in particular deals with the critique against the "1619 Project." The major thesis of the "1619 Project" is that it frames the beginning of the United States as taking place in 1619 with the arrival of the first slaves in Virginia. The major narrative then becomes a United States actually founded upon slavery and that slavery is central to all things United States. Thus the themes of "liberty and freedom," "unalienable individual rights" and "limited government established to expressly preserve such rights" are swept under the bed.

The real founding principles of the United States MUST be swept under the bed because they stand in stark contrast to centralised authoritarian control of the people. This is why the "1619 Project" is being taught in the schools. Adolf Hitler didn't create the "Hitler Youth" for no reason, he realised that he had to mould the minds of the children that they support, without question, a centralised and authoritarian Nazi state. It may not be Nazi's this time around, but it is certainly centralised authoritarianism. The labels change but not the agenda towards centralised power and control over the people.
Now back to the "1619 Project." Whilst it is true that slavery is an evil in USA history it is by no means the FOUNDATION of the nation as the "1619 Project" asserts.

Slavery has been a worldwide institution (it still exists in parts of Africa) going back millennia. The word "slave" actually has its origin with "Slav" in reference to the Slavic people of Central and Eastern Europe being enslaved by the Moors of Northern Africa. People have been enslaving other people for millennia. Blacks have enslaved Blacks. Whites have enslaved Whites. Blacks have enslaved Whites. Whites have enslaved Blacks. Asians have enslaved Asians etc. Slavery wasn't about race, it was about domination. When one people were able to dominate another slavery was often the result.

The reason racism became a thing in the Southern United States is because those whom supported slavery needed some justification in face of the critique by those whom supported the founding principles of the United States.

You see, "all men are created equal and are endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, LIBERTY, and the pursuit of happiness" doesn't gel well with enslavement. Thus when the abolitionists were pointing this out there needed to be some justification as to why the Black slaves were not included in "all men." Thus the view of the Black man as a "lesser human" closer to a "beast of burden" was born.

Slavery wasn't the result of racism in the United States. Racism was the result of trying to defend slavery against the USA founding principles. This is what the "1619 Project" completely ignores and it ignores it because the purpose of the "1619 Project" is to subtly promote authoritarian centralised control over the people, it is not designed to promote "all men are created equal and individual liberty."

So with that in mind go read the CNN article on the future of a woke United States divided into separate identities and understand why Joe Biden will issue an executive order to dissolve the "1776 Commission" in favour of the "1619 Project" being taught to the youth of the United States.

Manipulating Society - Rise of Beast Government

When the facts don't fit a conclusion, just ignore what is plainly obvious and invent some fiction. Now we have something called "multiracial whiteness" according to the Washington Post.


<<<To understand Trump’s support, we must think in terms of multiracial Whiteness:

...take a look at the FBI’s posters showing people wanted in the insurrectionist assault on the U.S. Capitol: Among the many White faces are a few that are clearly Latino or African American.
...
Yes, Trump’s voters — and his mob — are disproportionately White, but one of the more unsettling exit-poll data points of the 2020 election was that a quarter to a third of Latino voters voted to reelect Trump.
...
many Black and brown voters have family and friends who fervently backed the MAGA policy agenda, including its delusions and conspiracy theories.
...
what are we to make of unmistakably White mob violence that also includes non-White participants? I call this phenomenon multiracial whiteness — the promise that they, too, can lay claim to the politics of aggression, exclusion and domination.>>>
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/01/15/understand-trumps-support-we-must-think-terms-multiracial-whiteness/

In George Orwell's novel "1984" the main slogans of the Party were...

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

The people were kept in a constant state of fear and anxiety through the means of a constant barrage of never ending and contradictory propaganda. What is wasn't and what isn't was.

George Orwell, in writing and publishing "1984," was warning the world of how a totalitarian government can induce unquestioning submission and support via the means of psychological control. Control the minds and you control the people.

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

or

Racism is still racism even when it isn't.
Incitement is still incitement even when it isn't.
Delusion and conspiracy theory is still delusion and conspiracy theory even when it isn't.

Facts don't matter! What does matter is the propaganda narrative that will lead people into unquestioning submission to authoritarian centralised control. In this case it is the rejection of MAGA because it is racist, even though it isn't.

It actually goes much deeper though.

"And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?" Revelation 13:4

The "beast" in the Bible is representative of a system premised on "animalistic man." In other words, men whom are unrestrained by the love of God in their hearts. You see, man was created in the "image of God" (Gen 1:27) not the "image of beasts." Yet man can act like a beast by forsaking God and His image.

Jesus Christ bore witness of the image of God to humanity and described this image as "I am the way, the truth and the life" (Joh 14:6) and He invited people to "abide in me, and I in you" (Joh 15:4) because the outworking of true righteousness (ie. good fruit - Joh 15:8) is only possible through abiding/walking/living in the framework of God's love, His Spirit, His power. All one and the same thing.

To not do that is to be a beast and exist apart from God which is why the Bible makes a clear distinction between the "walking in the flesh" and "walking in the Spirit" (Rom 8:1-4).

"Walking in the Spirit" can be equated to self government via the Spirit of love. This is why the Apostle Paul would write "faith works by love" (Gal 5:6), "love works no ill" (Rom 13:10) and "if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law" (Gal 5:18). It's a very simple principle.

Yet that principle is rejected by most people to their peril and the end result will ALWAYS be totalitarianism of one form or another. You see, virtue is voluntary because it involves choice. Jesus invited people to follow Him, He didn't force them. Totalitarianism is the opposite, totalitarianism uses FORCE (psychological and physical) to compel obedience.

Everyone desires a better world, yet that doesn't mean every effort will bring one about. There are two paths, freedom of choice or coercion. Coercion NEVER works as history clearly demonstrates and that is because coercion requires centralised power and when human beings unrestrained by genuine love wield power they will ALWAYS abuse that power and you end up with an unrestrained BEAST power. An unchained wild animal devouring and wreaking havoc.

The United States was founded upon the principle of "freedom of choice" and "virtue." Whilst certainly not perfect and with much hypocrisy along the way, it was those underlying principles that allowed the United States to become so successful.

There are many today who arrogantly think they know what is best and desire to impose THEIR PLAN on everyone else and there are many more whom foolishly and blindly believe their rhetoric and thus elevate these kinds of people to power.

The United States didn't become the most powerful, productive and innovative nation in all of world history for no reason. It wasn't because of slavery, an institution that had existed worldwide for millennia. It was due to liberty, freedom and virtue. A people being able to pursue their dreams but in the respect of allowing others to do so as well. A "central plan" was not needed to develop a prosperous and productive society any more than a "central plan" was needed to develop the English language.

The United States was not founded as a "Beast" because the founders detoothed, declawed and chained the beast via the means of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. The USA founders recognised the fundamental unalienable rights of man and also recognised that the express purpose of government is to "secure these rights" in writing...

<<<We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.>>> Declaration of Independence

There was no concept that government existed to "fix the world" or "solve all problems." That was for individuals to do as they saw fit as they lived and prospered in a free society.

Yet there have always been those whom desire an unchained beast with the teeth and claws necessary to impose their "fix it" plans and therefore seek, at every opportunity, to undermine the USA founding principles.

In the absence of being able to directly refute liberty and freedom too openly (it doesn't sound good), it has to be done in a round-a-bout way ala George Orwell's...

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

By redefining reality one can put the people in a constant state of fear, confusion and anxiety by which those very people will empower a beast to be their saviour and protector. This is how totalitarian societies are born.

That's what's going on today.

Fact Check for the Corporate/Political/Media Alarmist Narrative

 

Here is a Fact Check for the corporate/political/media alarmist narrative.
 
Florida with NO LOCKDOWN has less than half the cases per million than California which is under a strict lockdown.
 
Florida (397 persons per sq. m.) even has a much higher population density than California (253 persons per sq. m.).
 
The truth is that lockdowns are about the exercising of power and control over people by the dictatorial minded, a type of people whom relish in ruling over others with the excuse of "we have to do something" or "we know better than you" as opposed to allowing a free people make their own decisions and risk assessments. It's bullying to be plain and simple.
 
I don't support bullying. Do you?

Feeding Fear to Gain Consent

 Yesterday, the World Economic Forum tweeted some fear mongering paranoid nonsense in order to scare the public into supporting a centrally planned dystopian socialist world order.

Centralised power is extremely dangerous and the majority of people in society are being lulled into supporting it.

These elitist central planners are not godly people. They are ego driven godless know-it-alls who want to control others.

Jesus Christ is the very opposite. He calls for people to voluntarily forsake all evil and come to righteousness.

You see, we either choose to do that or we don’t and the chips will fall where they may. We will reap what we sow, if we sow to the flesh (ie. serve base lusts like animals) then ultimately we will reap destruction (ie. wrecked relationships and a wrecked society and also be found wanting in the judgment to come) or we sow to the Spirit and walk in love, even whilst in a corrupt, wicked and deceived world, yet we have true life and peace, being aligned with God not being part of the problem working evil.

This is why the Apostle John wrote (and please carefully think about these words)...

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” 1Jn 4:17-18

Whilst there is no fear in love, there is certainly fear in paranoid delusions of the Earth turning into Venus due to freedom, liberty and a market economy.


“... the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” Daniel 12:10

Truth From The Experts About Coronavirus Deaths? I'm Not Holding My Breath

If 570 of 640 people (89%) who died of Covid-19 in two New Jersey hospitals had "do not resuscitate" orders {1] prior to being admitted to hospital then that certainly means that those 89% were already on deaths door.

"Do not resuscitate" orders are instructions given in the context of people at the "end of their lives or with an illnesses that will not improve" [2] and are often designated when people are in hospice care.

Clearly this 89% figure can be extrapolated with the implication that all Covid-19 related deaths likely have an equally high association with "do not resuscitate" orders. This clearly means that the vast majority of those dying of Covid-19 would have died shortly thereabouts due to the impact of already present illness.

It's a fact that the average age of death due to Covid-19 [3] is higher than that of those due to heart disease [4]. Not only that, but more people die each year due to heart disease than died from/with Covid-19 in 2020 by just under a factor of three [3][4]. It's similar with heart attacks [5].

Therefore the question we ought ask is why have we been destroying small businesses, increasing government dependence, completely undermining the rule of law by allowing executive branches of government to "make law," printing more money than ever than every before in history, destroying children's education, as well as inducing constant fear and paranoia in the general public when the above statistics are factual?

How can any of this can possibly be rooted in a genuine concern for the public's health when the consequences of the action taken is so destructive?  You DO NOT cut your leg off in order to prevent a foot infection. There has NEVER been an official cost/benefit analysis done as it pertains to any of this and such a cost/benefit analysis is not even discussed in the mainstream media. WHY?

There are even examples of people resigning from their official positions so they can speak out against all this insanity, one example being Sanjeev Sabhlo, a former economist in the Victorian Department of Finance and Treasury [6] in Australia. Again, you DO NOT cut your leg off in order to prevent a foot infection. Even with that being said, it is worth considering that there may be those in the business of selling crutches who may have an interest in compelling you to amputate that leg.

Scott.
