Drinking From my Saucer

cup-of-coffee-2275793__340

I’ve never made a fortune, and it’s probably too late now.

But I don’t worry about that much, I’m happy anyhow.

And as I go along life’s way, I’m reaping better than I sowed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

 

Haven’t got a lot of riches, and sometimes the going’s tough

But I thank God for His blessings, and the mercies He’s bestowed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

 

I remember times when things went wrong, my faith wore somewhat thin.

But all at once the dark clouds broke, and the sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe, about the tough rows I have hoed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage, when the way grows steep and rough

I’ll not ask for other blessings, I’m already blessed enough.

And may I never be to busy, to help others bear their loads

Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

When I think of how many people in this world have it worse than I do

I realize just how BLESSED we really are,

and I’ll keep drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

Ten Transgender Truths…

Ten Transgender Truths for Legislators and Concerned Citizens

SELWYN DUKE JUNE 12, 2017 FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 COMMENTS

By Selwyn Duke

Whether you’re a lawmaker considering a “bathroom bill” or some other “transgender”-oriented legislation, or a citizen pondering a vote influencing the matter, you need the facts. The following are 10 “transgender” truths:

  • There is no sound science behind the transgender agenda. No “expert” can point to any physiological markers, in any given case, proving that at issue is a biological phenomenon and not a purely psychological one.
  • The “transgender” diagnosis is based purely on feelings relating to what’s called strong “cross-gender identification.” It’s no different from a cardiologist performing bypass surgery on a patient — without conducting any medical tests confirming heart disease’s presence — based solely on the person claiming he feels as if he has clogged arteries. Yet on this basis alone a psychiatrist may recommend that a child live as a member of the opposite sex and even, at some point, have body-rending “gender-reassignment surgery” (read: mutilation).
  • Strong “cross-gender identification” is defined as “gender dysphoria.” There is also “species dysphoria” — the sense of being an animal stuck in a human body — and Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), the strong sense that a body part or parts don’t belong on/in one’s body (e.g., legs, eyes). All three disorders are defined by “feelings.” There’s no more proof that gender dysphoria has a biological basis than there is that species dysphoria or BIID does.
  • Yet it wouldn’t matter if there were. Many abnormalities are inborn, such as Down syndrome, cleft palate, spina bifida and sickle-cell anemia. Anomalies are the exception proving the rule of normalcy; moreover, biology doesn’t determine morality.
  • To re-engineer society (e.g., open bathrooms to the opposite sex) based on transgender claims is to subordinate the feelings of the vast majority of the population to the feelings of less than one percent of it.
  • Proponents of transgender bathroom social engineering argue that such people have been using the opposite sex’s facilities for decades without raising objections. Yet this only proves that these individuals — who convincingly pass as the opposite sex — don’t need a law to gain access. Conclusion: The push to open bathrooms isn’t mainly about access; it’s about changing the way people think. Social engineering is the goal.
  • Some of those pushing transgender bathroom social engineering are autogynephiliacs: Men who derive sexual pleasure from dressing as women. They can be confused with those genuinely gender dysphoric, despite having a different disorder. Such people likely constitute an inordinate percentage of those accessing the opposite-sex’s bathrooms and committing sexual abuse.
  • Telling schoolchildren it’s normal to live as the opposite sex is child abuse. It’s as if we told them it’s normal to be species dysphoric and live as an animal: It warps their sense of reality.
  • Allowing men claiming woman status into women’s athletic events, on the basis that “hormone-replacement therapy” eliminates any natural advantage, reflects ignorance. The intersex sports-performance gap is profound — the mile record for 15-year-old boys is better than the women’s world record. And boys’ running records surpass those for girls’ even among prepubescent children. Allowing “trans” men into women’s competitions is no different from permitting a 20-stone heavyweight to box as a lightweight because he identifies as a 135-pounder.
  • “Gender” and “sex” aren’t synonymous. Even psychologists will tell you that “sex” is a biological distinction while “gender” is merely your perception of what you are. In reality, “gender” should only be applied to grammatical classifications (as it used to be). The quality of being male or female is properly known as “sex.”

Prejudice means to pre-judge and is defined as “an opinion formed beforehand, esp an unfavourable one based on inadequate facts.” For policy to not be based not on prejudice but principle, we must arm ourselves with the facts.

‘Pansexual’ pervert proposes adding P for pedophiles to LGBT

DR. EOWYN MAY 24, 2017 FEATURED ARTICLES, PROPHECY/END TIMES, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 COMMENTS

We warned you about the slippery slope.

A self-appointed spokesman for the LGBT “community” named Ernst Steiner is urging LGBTs to add P to LGBT.

P is for “pedosexuals” — the Left’s new Orwellian euphemism for pedophiles.

Here’s Steiner’s propaganda of April 23, 2017 for a blog he founded called Heart Progress because, you see, fisting and banging bungholes and raping children is all about ♥ loove ♥, and “love is ageless” because pedophilia is just another sexual orientation and attraction, those noble LGBTPs just want to “legalize love”, and only “bigot” and “hatemongers” oppose and persecute those endearing “pedosexuals”:

For years, the struggle against hate and bigotry has gone on. For years, sexual minority groups of all sorts have faced persecution. Now, in the 21st century, we are finally beginning to see that bigotry begin to disappear. Homosexuals have the right to marry, minority genders are finally being recognized, transgender children are finally getting the treatment they need to be who they are, and most importantly, these groups are finally being given minority status.

But the sexual liberation movement has only just begun, and there’s still more work to be done. Yes, homosexuals have the right to marriage in some places, but there still needs to be global laws to ensure they have the right to marriage in all places. Sure, transgenders are being recognized for who they are, but discrimination against them is still rampant in today’s world. Luckily, these issues are being tackled by progressive groups across the globe, but there is still one minority group that is marginalized to the point of neglect: pedosexuals.

Since the beginning of the LGBT+ movement, pedosexuals have been there helping to achieve sexual liberation for all. Unfortunately, pedosexuals have also been the ones to stand up and take the heat to help prevent abuse toward their other sexual minority friends. This act of bravery among pedosexuals in the name of sexual equality has led to them being the ones being persecuted to this day, despite also being born with a different attraction. Now that the sexual liberation movement is succeeding, bigots have now focused all of their hate on pedosexuals, as they have already lost the war against other sexual minorities.

So the question still stands: Should the LGBTQ+ movement acceptpedosexuals? I think that the answer is quite obvious: Absolutely! Pedosexuals have helped achieve so much for the other sexual minority groups, that it would simply be unjust to allow them to suffer in discrimination due to hateful bigots on the right. Pedosexuals are going through what other sexual minorities went through thirty years ago, all because they were willing to take the heat so that their allies within the sexual liberation movement could move forward.

We of the LGBTQ+ movement need to do the moral thing and progress passed this bigotry toward these sexual minorities that is so often encouraged by the systemically bigoted mainstream. We cannot stoop as low as the hatemongers that have kept ourselves down, and we need to stand up for those who’ve held such an important role in our liberation. As a pansexual man, I am in full support of pedosexual rights, and you should be too.

The dictionary says “pansexual” is someone who’s sexually attracted to people regardless of their gender. But why restrict yourself to just “people” of all genders? That’s species discrimination!

Just you wait and see. Next on the agenda of pansexual Ernst Steiner and his ilk will be bestiality, which they prefer to call zoophilia, ’cause banging animals is all about loove, loove, loove.

Beware of long term deception

Disciples of hope

What if I told you that no matter how much information you share with your friends about the corrupt Babylonian world system and its reach in school, college, work and church, over 90% of them won’t care until it’s too late & only then will they wonder how we allowed this to happen?

A little bit of deviation from the good, can get you more towards evil. A little tolerance of immoral behavior, can cause a region to have rampant adultery and fornication, in a few decades if unchecked. A little leniency towards lies, can cause the entire community to be untrustworthy.

What’s the ‘little’ in your life and that of your friends and family that must not be given to evil, is not just your choice but your undeniable responsibility?

A few Bible verses to consider about the little things or little leaven of life:

His Glory will be Revealed

“Thunder rolls like massive mountains being moved. Streaks of lightning flash lighting up the skies. Roll of thunder give the earth your roar for the end is near and all will see His presence among the clouds.

Light will cross and light the skies around Him as His glory will be revealed. Heaven and earth will bow at His feet and all will cry, Holy is the Lamb.

Be not afraid O’ children of Israel for your God will prevail. The wars of time shall cease and My people will rejoice. Come O’ Mighty One for your battle has yet to take place. Skirmishes here and there only reveal the great objective.

Bring My people home, sayeth the Lord, bring them to repentance. The Lord your God is just and forgiveness abundant. Repent O’ Jerusalem, lay down your ways. Gather not the stones of time past but bring forth the words of new.

Let His presence guide you, teach you His ways. Fall to your knees and praise His Majesty.

Repent O’ Jerusalem, lay your idols aside, turn your faces to the heavens for your God is there. His righteousness is ever-present, His truth is to be told. His grace will light your hearts and His victory is yours.

Take heed O’ Jerusalem for the time is near. The time to seek all He has, for destruction lies ahead. Call your soldiers, soldiers of war, for the enemy is near and he wants your land.

Destruction and chaos is around you, repent and save your soul. Go forth in battle with your heads held high for I am with you as I have been before. Take up your swords and march in time, in time as the Lord your God directs.

Take up your swords and circumcise your hearts. The harvest is here and let not your chaff lay on the roadside. Be in full bloom as only He can do. Fill yourselves with His fruit and leave the hull behind.

Take up your swords My precious children. My chosen, for the seas shall part, the rivers will dry. The leading of the Lord is yours for the asking.

Revenge is Mine, sayeth the Lord. Keep your hearts in check. Do not hasten where hasten is not needed. Wait upon the Lord. Be My people with cheers of joy, rejoice for the victory is yours.”

Happy? Mother’s Day

Today is Mother’s Day and I have avoided turning on the T.V., going to church, and those things that remind me of what a mother is supposed to be but that many of us did not experience.

Growing up in an abusive home where the abuse is ignored or perpetrated by the mother does not leave happy memories for many of us. Whether it was the Dad doing the abuse or the mother inflicting the physical or emotional pain, it leaves more than just a bad taste in the mouth of the surviving child/adult.

We hear from the pulpits across America the testimonies of those mother’s that raised their children in loving and caring homes. I’m happy for those children that have those memories. They are truly blessed more than they probably realize.

But what about the others? Those of us that hear the wonderful testimonies and sit quietly trying to hide the tears and shut out the memories of abuse, betrayal, and mother’s that chose to be far less than what God wanted her to be. Every child loves their mother whether they admit it or not. That’s why the pain is so deep.

Many people do not want to hear the testimonies of hurt, pain, and betrayal within a family, especially within a church. “This isn’t the place for that” is what I’ve heard after giving a testimony of an abusive childhood. Even though those testimonies reveal the healing power of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. “It’s just too awful to hear.” So the pulpits are sadly quiet about what reality is to many and how the Lord has healed the hearts of many.

Many of us that have experienced the healing power of Christ do forgive, as difficult as it is. And many times we have to forgive over and over and especially on days like today; Mother’s Day.

In my case, my mother is with the Lord. Praise God because she accepted Christ as her Savior in her late 80’s so I know she is with Him.

But what about those who still have their mother’s? Those who, out of a sense of obligation and a bad taste in their mouth, send the flowers and cards? Honoring your mother and father, as Christ commands, causes some to feel that dreaded obligation but what it means is that you are acknowledging their authority, their position, as your parent.

Forgiveness is a powerful thing. It does not say what they did was right. It does not say we have to have contact with them or a relationship with them. It says we release the hurt, the anger, the guilt, the shame, and the unforgiveness. For our benefit not theirs. Our Father in heaven forgives us as we forgive others. If we won’t forgive then He will not bless us with His forgiveness.

I pray that we may hand our hurt to the Lord and celebrate that there are mother’s who exemplify the Father’s love of His children and set aside the hurtful memories. Forgiveness does not render amnesia.

Blessings to you.

Honoring Mommy & Daddy

I wrote this a few years ago and re-posting it with Mom’s Day today and Father’s Day coming up.

The Ten Commandment are given to us to protect and enhance our daily lives. A young child is taught to respect the commandments and all of the scriptures. Hopefully through, and with, the love of their parents or some other loving individual.

Many times the commandment, “Honor your mother and father” is taught by an abusive person as a means of control and manipulation. His/her distorted version of this commandment can and does cause many problems later in life for the survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

It can also distort His word for those who have been physically or emotionally abused. Particularly if that abuse was from those closest to the child, the parent.

“These are the commandments the Lord

proclaimed in a loud voice…

Honor your father and your mother

as the Lord your God has commanded you,

so that you may live long and that it

may go…
