Blessing

BLESSING 

    As you have figured out by reading this letter that I have wrote.  I cannot shut up about how the Lord Jesus Christ has affected my life.  It seems like no matter what the topic or subject is I want to put God in it.  He has blessed me in more ways than I can mention or realize. 

    Most everybody thinks that they should be blessed for being a good example.  The blessing that they get might not be what they expect.   I use to think that I would be blessed finically.  I never got blessed that way.  For many years I held a grudge against God.  I thought me hiding my bad habits from others and being a good person was good enough.  You know being a good example.

    Now, I can look at it now.  It was a good thing that I got no settlement for either of the two head injuries that have taken place in my life.  I take it as a blessing.  Even though that the frustration makes me very angry and very embarrassing at times.  It has made me a stronger person.  It made me work harder to get out of the wheel chair or use any assistive device.  For some reason I can’t stand sympathy for myself.

    When god made me I think he did not want me to have sympathy for myself.  It is written in the book of Genesis chapter two verses seven, “And the lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”   If I wanted to walk on my own I had to work for it.  If I would have had money then it would not be as important to me.  I wanted to be independent for myself.

    It was like he knew what family to put me with.  He knew that I was going to be raised by Glenn Pointer.  My natural father is a great man now.  He lived on the belief of man at first.  Now Glenn was a man of the old ways not a church going man.  But if you ever met him you would think he is the most polite and well mannered man.  God would consider him as being real humble.  My natural father was more of a bull in a china closet in his younger years.  But now he is one of the best men you would ever meet.

    I love Glenn but he is all about work.  No play just all work.  I like watching football, hunting, and fishing.  I have never seen him watch football, movies, fish, or just go camping.  Randy likes the same things I do really, except the playstation.  But he introduced me to Christ and showed me how to walk the talk to the best of your ability and truly repent of your old ways.  He did it not just say it but showed me.

    I thought I was too old to be living with my dad again.  I am living on his property in a trailer house.  That bothers me still to this day.  At least I have a good family and a roof over my head.  I have to use food stamps for food.  That is so embarrassing in my mind.  I am supposed to be able to take care of myself.  I need to shut up and look around me.  After I do that then I see how blessed I am.   So many people are in need and I have the audacity to gripe.

    It finally dawned on me that I was blessed from day one.  Being born in the U.S.A. plus being raised by two great men Glenn Pointer and Randy Giddens.  Real men, not posers or little boy’s better yet.    The blessing having great men like my uncles, Lawrence Crow, Mike Staten, even my two cousins Richard, and Michael Crow.  There are more but those are the men who played a big part in my life.  My mother married a good man that is a very good example named Mike Easterwood.  You don’t see good men as much anymore.  Either they have given in to the ways of the world to blend in with the crowd or chose to hide like a little coward.  And yes I am talking about some preachers or better yet posers.   Now, Jesus Christ is much more diplomatic than I.  He put it in a way that is easy on the ears.    He put in writing in the book of Matthew chapter seven verses fifteen, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are like ravenous wolves.”

    I realized that I was just being what I despise most.  I looked in the mirror and judged myself as I do to others in my mind.  I saw the biggest hypocrite in the world.  It is so easy to judge others and point out their bad deeds.   God said in the book of Matthew chapter seven, “Judge not, that you not be judged.  For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.  That was just like getting slapped in the face.  Thank God for the blessing we have through Jesus Christ.   I use to judge people all the time.  I still do but am constantly repenting for it.  

    Anybody can talk the walk.  I know, I was one of the best.  Out of all the people that I know not one of them can walk the talk like God did who is Jesus Christ.   It is impossible for man to do.  You do not see many that put the Christian walk to practice anymore in America like they use to. 

    You know in some countries the name Jesus Christ and any Christian paraphernalia is against the law.  Jesus Christ is the most controversial   name in the world.  Have you ever asked yourself why?   I turn on the television and see riots and hear about the destruction in other countries.   To think I have the audacity to complain about anything.  Just look at the blessing we already have.

    I was blessed being born in America alone.  Not to mention being raised and taught by the best men that I have seen.  I can only dream about being half the man that I was taught and shown how to be and as the generation grows.  A true man will be vanished and replaced by beggars that complain all the time about not getting what they want.  I was always had the assumption that we are to raise boys to men and girl to woman. 

    Maybe you can help me figure out something.  Why do we help build up other nations if we can’t repair or own?  In our pledge of allegiance we say under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.  Seeing how under God has been in the pledge since 1892. Then why are we not listening to what he says in the book of Matthew chapter seven verses 3, 4, 5, “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?

        Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?

    “Hypocrite!  First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”  That gave me the chills when I wrote that.  It’s like he knew that an American was going to copy that.  It is like those words were written just for me.  If you think about it, our own country helps everybody body else out when they are in need.  We do say under God.  Are we hypocrites?  So why don’t we tend to our needs so we can provide help without putting our own country in jeopardy.

    The best blessing ever preformed was Jesus Christ.  We are blessed in America to share that with others without the persecution.  We are fortunate to have the freedom to do that.  Some countries are not so lucky.  No matter what faith you have you are fortunate to be able to express it in America.  I am a proud Christian that lives in America.  God probably rolls his eyes or shakes his head saying, “When is it enough,” on people living in America.  Think about it, I mean we were born blessed here in America.  To me that is the second best blessing there is.

     We are so blessed to be here in America.   Let me put this so anybody can understand.  God destroyed the world before with water.  But the next time will be fire.  Mankind got another chance and he even showed his love and mercy for us through giving us forgiveness through his son Jesus Christ.    

    American people like myself are so spoiled. Take for instance when that hurricane knocked our electric out.  No Air conditioning.  We could not just get in the car.  Think about it, the gasoline pumps are electric.  We needed to conserve gas.  The freezer that supplied all our food, now thanks to God I’m a country boy even though I’m a one hundred percent benefited American mutt.  I still know how to fish and hunt.  I could not shower and shave like I normally do.  I got a little rank.  But think about the lady’s not being able to get all fancied up.

   It seems like now you will only get noticed if you are famous or rich.  What happened in being noble?  If you don’t have a nice car, house, good job, and money nobody wants to get know you or care to hear your opinions on things.  I can see why people do not care to stay around and listen to me.  I have to face the truth.  I appear drunk and sound like I’m either mental or just a space case.  You know fried.  God don’t want you to judge others.  But use your head on whether or not to stick around and consult.  I do talk about the bible a whole lot maybe too much.

     If I get the since you don’t care to hear what I have to say.  I simply will just do what the lord our God said in the book of Mark chapter six verses eleven, “And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust of your feet as a testimony against them.  Assuredly, I say to you it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in that day of  judgment than for that city!” 

    I’m not the smartest or best looking kid on the block but I do have morals and know how to treat people with respect.   I only wish I was as physically fit like an athlete and had my motor skills again.   Then I would either be a football player, movie star.  I would try that U.F.C.   But it takes more of a man to walk away.  That has been what I have been taught.  Besides I don’t like to fight.  It is a shame that we are showing our future how to lie, cheat, and steal.  You know the lawlessness.   Were we not told different or did we just show them how to perfect on hypocrisy?  Like they say practice makes perfect.

    Most Know that God is coming back.  The real Christians know that religion is just mans way to get to heaven by doing good deeds but only Jesus Christ can do that.  There are going to be those who believe in religions that are false or say Christianity is just another religion to whole lot of people and there are those who continue committing sins with no remorse and know of the name that forgives all.   God said in the book of Matthew chapter seven verses twenty two, “Many will come to me on that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, cast out demons in your name?”  Same chapter but in the next verse twenty three, “And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness!”

    In the very beginning of the bible in Genesis chapter six verses thirteen, “And god said to Noah, “The end of flesh has come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”  Now let’s go and read the book of Genesis verses eleven, “Thus I establish my covenant with you:  Never again shall all flesh be cut off by waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.”  Then again in the same book Genesis chapter eight verses twenty one it reads, “Then the lord smelled a soothing aroma .  Then said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I destroy every living thing as I have done.”

    Let’s not forget that all the bible was taught to people that still believed that the world was flat.  Demons were creatures that will come out at night.  Attacking and killing people.  Dragons and creatures of the night would get you.  Night time was a mystery.   God had to re word everything so that they would understand.  That is one of the reasons that time period was chosen for the second coming.  He knew that we would have the means to find out the truth.  That is one of the things that drive’s the atheist and the other false religions mad.

    One of the reasons they cannot find the remains of Jesus Christ is because he is the only God that died for his people but death could not hold him so he rose and conquered death once in for all.  Why is it that the other so called Gods are buried?  Like for instance Buda or Mohammad whose bones are just taking up space on the earth.  Pardon me; let me rephrase that last sentence.  I should have said buried in the earth.   Have you ever asked yourself why that name is the most recognized and controversial in the whole world? 

    God knew that mankind has an evil heart.  So, when he gave mankind free will he knew that they would destroy the world that he gave us as well.  He also knew with us having an evil, perverse, violent heart that mankind would build weapons of mass destruction that cause fire.  Now he did say the next time will be with fire.   So, he takes full responsibility of the destruction because it was him that gave us free will.

    We will continue the second book of Peter the apostle in chapter three verses seven , “But the heavens and the earth which are preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”  Ok, in the same book second Peter and chapter three verses ten it was written, “But the day of the lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works in it will be burned up.”

    Ok, before we continue to what he has to say next.  Let’s think about what was said.  In an uneducated, spoiled, little American mutts mind like mine, I look around in today’s society and see that we have these weapons that cause that kind of noise, fire, and heat that he is talking about.  It just was wrote thousands of years ago.  It sounds like them big bad boy missiles.  You know them nuclear ones it seems to me that it would take more than one to destroy the whole world, correct.  

    Well in my buddies book Dr. Luke’s.   Just joking, never met the man.  The name is all we have in common besides our faith in the lord Jesus Christ.  Ok, I’ll shut up and get back to my theory.  Some people that got to walk with my buddy and asked God AKA Jesus Christ many years ago In the book of Luke chapter twenty one verses starting in verses seven, “Teacher, but when will these things be?  And what sign will there be when these things are going to take place?”  Talking about the knockout punch that’s going to take place in the fight we are going to have.  I would like to know the ending to football games.  I could be rich.  I know I will get back to your theory. 

    Well God said the book of Luke chapter twenty one verses eight, nine, and ten it is written, “Take heed that you not be deceived.  For many will come in my name, saying, “I am he,” and the times have drawn near.’ There for do not go after them.

    “But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.  Nation will rise up against nation and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great sighs’ from heaven.”  I wonder if he was talking about all the plane wrecks.  We have had some bad earthquakes in different areas.  I also wonder if all the pestilences he is referring to would be sexual transmitted diseases.  Na, surely he would have said S.T.D’S wouldn’t he?  It was a very long time ago.

   I look at the children and the way things are going in today’s society and I am very thankful for how I was raised.  I have been commented and praised by many on how polite or how I present myself to others.  My work ethic that was taught to me from my childhood has got me through some really tough areas in life.  I am proud of myself for achieving what I have.  Not many people could have done what I have done.   I am very blessed to have been through what I have. 

    The generation upon us now, are being raised how the government sees is correct.  I believe it is called the political correctness.   I think it is political crapness.  Our own government has tied the parent’s hands.  That little thing that the government has done will cause the destruction of America just as it did to the Roman Empire.
