Ink Pastries

Little rhyming poems that are delectable, and a few side dishes.

OMG!! Does He speak to us constantly or what???? (“Random event” that just happened!)

I went to my email after posting the real story (which I mangled) of the “dead” man’s ascent into hell and how the beings “tore him apart.” The last email sent me was title “Tear Apart” and I thought someone was responding to my post or Cheryl’s and instead it was a “random” email (God speaks to us constantly and reaffirms His thoughts). But it was a political email. I still get them though I completely lost my “taste” for politics when I was born again 2.5 years ago. Here’s one of the paragraphs from that email:
“Sheri – We’re facing two years with a Republican majority that’s already working to tear apart everything we’ve accomplished. And they’re already plotting how to win even more seats in 2016.”

Nothing makes people more divided and hateful than politics, except, of course religion. That’s why we have to be careful not to be like the Pharisees because that is worshipping religion, not God. Going through “the motions” won’t save anyone. Only repentance through the royal lamb, the perfect Priest, LOGOS.

I’ve been alive over 50 years and here’s what I see: Democrats, REpublicans, Democrats, REpublicans. It’s a pendulum and it’s smoke and mirrors to keep us distracted from the real issue that we are here to address: our choice for salvation or destruction. Ever put a fake mouse on a string and swing it back and forth in front of a cat? That’s the political drama for you. The American public is the cat.

Here’s the real story (I mangled it a bit, but I AM a writer!)

http://blog.godreports.com/2012/03/atheist-professors-near-death-experience-in-hell-left-him-changed/

Again, here is the real 50000 Shades of Gray we should fear. “The beginning of wisdom begins with the fear of God.”

Meaning to fear the One who can destroy His whole creation with the swoop of His hand. Satan is an underling, and you CAN stand up to him with God’s Word as your shield. God frees you from fearing the wrong things that just waste your time. Fear what you should fear and you will have the peace that Jesus offered, which strangely enough is no fear because God’s love is perfect once you turn to Him. Ask God’s angels to guard you in “all your ways” (the part of the verse Satan left out when tempting Jesus).

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey.

(Click on “Fifty Shades” above to get Cheryl’s post and I am posting my comment just in case you don’t go to this post about 50 SOG and read it under hers.)

I don’t have to read all of your post to agree. I wasn’t even born again yet when I tossed this book aside at page 50-ish. I read even that far because my “friends” were gushing about it. And I can say honestly that I was a sex addict at the time and it made ME sick. I even wonder that it was a gift from God because it made me see how cancerous my lust was (because truly this is my lust taken to its “end point”-–being Satan’s slave). It made me look at myself and my motives and ask myself: Hmmm. What is it I really want? (I’ve come to realize, via Holy Spirit, that there is no one more dangerous to themselves than someone who doesn’t know what they really want, which is a majority of people). Do I want a rich man to sweep me off my feet with these kinds of conditions? Then I realize my two marriages that I’m divorced from were not far from this (I give you money: you give me sex). The answer I realized was NO. I’d rather be poor financially, living in a trailer with a Jesus-loving man. I’m still poor financially and no Jesus-loving man (I know plenty of religious men but they are “luke-warms”), but I have Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God. That’s enough. I KNOW what I want! Amen, sister!

P.S. The title even makes me think of one man’s story (on Youtube) about how he died in the ER and had this really long vision of being in a bright place with people he recognized and they were all really friendly and cajoling and leading him down this really long long long hallway that seemingly took a life-time to walk down. But he noticed with each step the light got a little dimmer and the hallway got a little “grayer.” Until finally it was starting to get dark enough he could hardly see the people who were touching him gently and leading him, talking to him. Then suddenly they turned on him and started ripping him to pieces. He cried out for the “LORD” to have mercy on him (which came out of nowhere but he felt like he’d been given the words to be saved). And then he woke up–alive and born again and grateful. Now THAT’S the 50 Shades of Gray we should be contemplating and acting on!

A POEM IN HONOR OF SHEL AND JESUS

I’D RATHER

I’d rather not be a Saul nor a Saul,
but rather a David perhaps, or a Paul.
I’d rather not “not” kill
if He’s told me I should
nor kill what I shouldn’t
when folks said I could.
I’d rather not sin against God if I may.
No, I’d rather seek Jesus and follow His Way.

ARE YOU A PRIEST OF MELCHIZEDEK YET? (POEM)

256px-Meeting_of_Abraham_and_Melchizedek_Hajdudorog
BAPTISM INTO THE PRIESTHOOD
BY WATER AND GOD’S SPIRIT

Baptism by tears is the water baptism–
cry for carnality and your lust for the “ism.”
Cry for your need to be accepted by “all”–
that God wasn’t enough, so you chose to fall.
Cry till the flood wipes out all evil “men”
inside you, but those who would choose not to sin
if they relied upon Him who would not destroy you:
He’ll wait until you’re ready for Who would employ you!
Then His Spirit descends from the Heavens above
and fills you with desire for His Word and His Love
and it’s all you can think about–you’re now a priest
of the order Melchizedek which never has ceased!
You’re also a prophet who can see in men’s hearts:
a mechanic of humans: you can see all their parts,
and God tells you what will happen, so stand in the gap
and don’t be afraid of every little mishap.
Trust God’s in the works when you pray Him into it:
and witness and witness. I know you can do it!!

ARE YOU AT THE END OF YOUR ROPE? (POEM)

Northrop_Abraham_Offers_Isaac
WHEN YOU’RE AT THE END OF THE ROPE
(for Robin Williams and anyone who has considered suicide)

If you find your “self” at the end of the rope–
when you’ve lost your grasp and you see little hope–
don’t kick the chair that you put underneath you:
call out to God and say, “God, I bequeath You
my soul, my body, my ego, my plans
and if there’s reincarnation: all my life spans!
I give to You me, if you’ll take all my guilt:
of people I hurt, and the walls we’ve all built,
and blot me out if that’s all You can do:
suicide’s not the answer and I know that is true!”
Say it, pray it, until you weep and the flood
comes out of you, cleansing you: body and blood.
Like Isaac, like Jesus: be the Passover lamb.
Then walk out of Egypt, your hand in His hand.

Pornography Addiction

Ink Pastries:

Addiction falls under one over-arching category: distraction, which is Satan’s tool, or the ego’s (if you prefer psychology jargon), for keeping you in slavery. Let God bring you out of Egypt….now! Read the Old Testament and see yourself in it–don’t be a grasshopper afraid of giants. He is with you!

Originally posted on 800recoveryhubblog:

The term “pornography addiction” always gets a  raised eyebrow reaction. But, what make it so addictive? Why should it matter? People are free to have their own interests. That’s true, but viewing pornography can mess with your brain in the same way drugs do. And, just like drugs and alcohol a little can be ok (sometimes even beneficial) but “too much” can cause problems.

Whether you’re taking drugs or viewing pornography the addiction process is the same.

Here are three things that happen when a person suffers from an addiction:

  1. Chemical – you over-expose the brain with pleasure chemicals like dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and epinephrine
  2. Re-wiring – your brain changes to accommodate the extra chemicals
  3. Dependency – You build a tolerance and a dependency to the chemicals. You go from “wanting” the pleasure chemicals in order to feel good to “needing” them.

This happens in the frontal lobes: The area of your brain…

ARE YOU READING DEAD-END STORIES? (POEM)

THE BIBLE IS A GATE, NOT A DEAD-END

The Bible is a gate
that opens to a place
we lived once upon a time, till hate
reacted. Fate.

So read with this in mind:
it opens only when
you repent of the evil you would find
in every dead-end sin.

Most books we read are this:
sin’s consequences or
the belief that we can magically kiss
away our ills and more.

So when you hesitate
to open up one’s cover
remember there is only One
whose Love you could discover!

450 sheep jump to their deaths in Turkey
ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) — First one sheep jumped to its death. Then stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched as nearly 1,500 others followed, each leaping off the same cliff, Turkish media reported.
In the end, 450 dead animals lay on top of one another in a billowy white pile, the Aksam newspaper said. Those who jumped later were saved as the pile got higher and the fall more cushioned, Aksam reported.

“There’s nothing we can do. They’re all wasted,” Nevzat Bayhan, a member of one of 26 families whose sheep were grazing together in the herd, was quoted as saying by Aksam.

The estimated loss to families in the town of Gevas, located in Van province in eastern Turkey, tops $100,000, a significant amount of money in a country where average GDP per head is around $2,700.

“Every family had an average of 20 sheep,” Aksam quoted another villager, Abdullah Hazar as saying. “But now only a few families have sheep left. It’s going to be hard for us.”
