The title of this blog is really an expression. Its meaning is your morning cup of coffee. In other words what many of us do or partake of to start our days activities. In the New York area which is where I dwell. You cannot turn on an AM radio station before noon. And not be inundated with every form of perverted, demonic and otherwise untoward conversation. This is referred to as your morning joe in the land of media. The stations typically have a team of 2 or 3 people. All of them having a propensity for trash talking. Generally one is the so called straight man. Countering the main pigs jabs and jibes about the latest news articles about some hooker or weirdos activities. One of the so called shock jocks regularly and sarcastically makes reference to the baby Jesus as he calls him.
To me this is out of pure guilt for the way he is making his millions. He knows he is wrong but he cant stop. The lure of money is too great. He also had his number 2 man on the show for many years. Who claimed he was a bible thumping born again Christian. He played the straight man. And laughed and cajoled with the rest of them as slob after slob presented their perverted blend of what they call humor…day in and day out. Millions and millions of people start their work day off filling their minds and souls to the brim with garbage. And many of these so called shock jocks just happen to be Jews. Sons of the promise of Abraham who was called the friend of God. Well my friend God has certainly kept his promise to Abraham. And that was that he would bless his seed after him. But the blessing for most of them is strictly in the monetary realm. For the true blessing which is Jesus the Christ has been overlooked by most of Abrahams seed.
Now back to the morning joe. The book of First Timothy chapter 4 and verse 2…They speak lies in hypocrisy. Having their consciences seared with a hot iron. And now to one of my favorite reads. Webster’s dictionary for the definition of seared…Here we go…To burn or scorch injuriously….To make callous or unfeeling. To dry up or wither away…These people have become mentally and spiritually devoid of feeling. They have allowed themselves to be seared of the natural God given normalcies of human interaction. When they think of love it is lust. When they think of gain it is covetousness. When they think of good its everything that is bad. Their lives’ are antichrist. There are many of us who have someone in our lives like the person I am about to describe. Due to certain circumstances this individual crosses paths with me on a regular basis. Quite possibly they are the most filthy and vulgar person I have ever met. I don’t like them and I don’t want them near me. I don’t want to hear what they have to say. And I don’t want to see what they are doing. And do you know what? Almost all of the other people who have contact with them. Think they are funny.
It is at this moment. That I realize how blessed I really am. I have been eternally altered in a good way. The fact is that I now know sin in all of its ugly forms has no part in me. And it should have no part in you as well. There are no circumstances under which it is OK for a Christian to be lewd, vulgar, drunk, pilled up or anything else you can think of. Here is how I begin my day before work. And for all of my Protestant friends out there. You are going to love this. I am kidding because they hate the rosary. They think I am on the wrong track. That Pope Francis is the antichrist. And that I am out of my mind asking the saints in heaven to intercede for me. They would be and are wrong. I get in my car. The radio is turned off. I bless myself with the sign of the cross. Oh my Protestant friends! Can it possibly get any worse? He blessed himself with the sign of the cross. And I begin to pray my rosary. I want my day to start on the right foot. And the right foot is in prayer. I need and you need to remind ourselves of who it is we are living for. And who it is that died for us. This world and its inhabitants for the most part have no part in me. I don’t like them and Gods doesn’t expect me to like them. Do not feel badly about not wanting to be around the sinful. We don’t belong with them because we have been removed from them spiritually speaking. Second Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17….Therefore if any man is in Christ…He is a new creature. All of the old things have passed away. And behold all things have become new. The book of Hebrews chapter 10 verse 31…It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Just a little reminder for you vulgar swine. Who think its fun to take your liberal jabs at Gods holy ones. Your day is coming. Just like those who poked fun at Noah when he warned of the coming flood. You will be dragged kicking and screaming into eternal damnation…..To be continued
There is an old joke. Now I am not one to repeat jokes anymore. But this is actually clean. Believe it or not there was a time when an entire family could sit in front of the boob tube. Without worrying about who was going to hear what. That is not the case anymore. For Satan has certainly secured a well used niche in the realm of video and audio….So here goes nothing. Two men are standing in front of a casket. One guy says to the other… He looks great! To which the second man says…What do you mean he looks great? He is dead….And the other fellow says….Yeah I know he is dead….But he never looked so good when he was alive….Now I now its not much of a joke in the realm of Ha Ha…But the point made is one that I shall expound upon.
The truth as you know. Is the only thing that can benefit mankind. For a lie is nothing more than a discreet covering of what the truth is. And to tell the truth…no matter how uncomfortable it may be for the listeners. Is always, always, always the best remedy for any of life’s situations. Lets read together one of Jesus Christ’s many truths conveyed through the holy writ. Once again he is dropping a holy hand grenade into the Jewish religious leaders camp. And by the way. Deception is akin to a lie. For both divert ones attention away from reality. And for those of you who believe that a little deception is OK..It was Jesus who said that Satan was a liar and a deceiver from the beginning. Of course many of you could care less about aligning yourself with the devil. But as for me and my house it will remain…The truth…the whole truth…and nothing else… so help me God. The gospel of Matthew chapter 23 verse 27….Woe be it unto you oh scribes and Pharisees! You are hypocrites! For you appear like a well whitewashed tomb. Which on the outside seems beautiful. But on the inside you are filled with dead men’s bones.
Even so outwardly you appear as being righteous to men. But within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Much like our politicians of today. As well as many of our religious leaders. These creeps were scamming their congregants. Mugging for the cameras so to speak. Happy when in public someone said to them… Hello rabbi. Causing their pride to jump within them. They were spiritually dead. While their façade was that of a spiritual leader. I find this to be true in my own religion more often than not. People take the microphone. Wearing their suit and tie. Or religious garb. But as they speak….the words fall out of their mouths like stones to the ground. Their words have no life because they came from a spiritually dead… inanimate being. Dead words from a dead man….Hence the term Dead Men Walking.
But Jesus had a better plan for mankind. And that plan was life. The gospel of John chapter 10 verse 10…The thief comes for nothing but to steal, kill and destroy. But I have come that you may have life. And that you might have it more abundantly…..The emphasis being on the word.. might.. my friends. You might have it if you decide to pick up your cross and follow him. I find it rather interesting that life comes through an instrument of death such as the cross…..Got Jesus?…..To be continued
For many of you who are not Catholics. The season of Advent is a relative unknown. But the reality is that it is to be an normal part of your Christian life. No matter what group you pledge allegiance to. Which is just one more reason why bashing the Catholic church is such an exercise in futility. For in one way shape or form all of you are attempting in your churches to do or to get back to doing. All of the things we are regularly doing in Catholicism.
The 4 weeks leading up to Christmas are to be a time of introspection and retrospection. We are not to dwell on our past sins. But rather being all to aware of what they are. From this point in time. We are to move forward in a spirit of repentance and humility. Readying ourselves for the coming of our Lord. The people of that time were drawn to the lives lead by Jesus and John the Baptist. Jesus told his disciples that the Son of Man doesn’t even have a place to lay his head down.
John was wearing camel hair clothes and eating locusts and honey. Which was something the poorest of the poor did. They were living the lives that others dared not to do. We are and were unclean spiritually impoverished Gentiles. Who prior to Christ. Had no rights to the riches and blessing of Almighty God. That were imparted to the Jewish people through their lineage to Abraham. And yet in Gods infinite mercy. Jesus Christ is born in poverty. In a manger constructed for animals not humans. Born to grow and die on a cross for our sins. And the sins of the whole world. There is nothing you and I can do about the past.
But there is a good deal we can do about our future. And the future of those in our sphere of influence. And so my friends. During this season of Advent. Looking forward to the celebrated birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.Take a hard look at your own walk. If you have a walk at all. And begin to make the necessary changes . Which are needed in our lives. To draw ever closer to Jesus. Keeping in mind the words of John. Make straight the way of the Lord. Like John..we were and are not worthy to undo the laces of his sandals. But in and through his mercy. We have been grafted into the vine of Israel. And through Him we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us….Blessed be the name of the Lord…To be continued
Now as it pertains to the specific times or dates or seasons. We as Christians have no need for anything to be written down for us. For we know perfectly well that the day of the Lord will come as suddenly and unexpectedly as a thief in the night. When the world is saying that all is well and peaceful and secure. Then in a moment unforeseen death, ruin and destruction…will come upon them suddenly. Like the labor pains which come upon a woman with child. They will by no means escape for there will be no escape.
But we as Christians are not given over to the power of darkness. That the day should overtake us also as a thief. For we are sons and daughters of the light and of the day. And neither darkness or the night have any part of us. Accordingly let us not be found sleeping as the rest of humanity does. But rather let us remain wide awake, watchful, alert, cautious and on our guard.
For those who sleep..sleep in the night. And those who are drunk get drunk in the night. But we belong to the day. For God has not appointed us to incur his wrath. He did not select us to condemn us. But rather that we might obtain his salvation through the Lord Jesus. Who died for us that whether or not we are alive or dead at the time of his coming. We might live together with him and share in his life. Therefore encourage, edify and admonish one another as you have been doing….Got Jesus?…to be continued
