“Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.” (Psalm 33: 22 King James Version [KJV]).

Greetings in the Holy Name Of Jesus Yahshuah,

My sisters and brothers, let the mercy of God truly follow us all the days of our life, for the nonbelievers just do not know—-they pretend to know to get a little further along their way, each day [Psalm 23: 6, King James Version (KJV), “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”]. But while they tell you, I never sat next to a Doctor of Education. I never talked to a Doctor of Education, before, they still are trying to hood-wink you and enslave you—-spoken in the vernacular, take all you got, you best put your boots on, for the soldiers of God are marching on, through the highways and byways, alleys ways, dirt roads, jails, prisons, schools, and households. Sometimes, you just want to scream, for the relief of it all—-the obvious mistaken identity.

You feel the words coming up out of you, hard to suppress, I do not know who you mistake me for but I am the Doctor of Education living on the same road as you, to benefit you, while I still have $300,000 more to pay for this education at 5.25 percent. I am the Doctor of Education who retired early, yet if I did not live at the poverty-level, as a priest does—-a woman of God, then, I would have to pay at least $3,100 per month. These are rough numbers, I am trying to remember the raw data, of my own finances. I am the Doctor of Education who must live at poverty-level to continue to pay $0 per month, for 25 years and I lost 4 years because I consolidated my loans, so the timeframe reset, giving me now this year 8 years towards the 25 years when I should have 12 years towards the 25 years.

Interestingly enough, I dare not consolidate again—-just be satisfied at 5.25 percent when before I consolidated the last loans I was in at 3 percent. Well, enough of talking shop, I just want you to know that I am the Doctor of Education—-the factor that you put in your mind as the least of all, out of hate, who you dramatically speak-out against so you can get your hands on the monies coming out of the collection and tithings plate and get all the calls for speaking engagements. Why, pray tell? You did not even attend school or the seminary; just want to take from God, not knowing what you are talking about—-just a collection of quotes you liked, strung along from each speaker that you heard. That is all that you give the people and block those with the knowledge to interpret, in truth.

Of course, you also aggressively block the people from receiving the knowledge because you are the backbiters, whoremongers, and haters, the gospel readings speak of gossiping, spitting-out false teachings to discourage growth in the Word of God [2 Corinthians 12: 20-21, KJV, “For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults: And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.“]. You are not ready! I get the light go on—-a sense of readiness just the other day and I have been immersed in scripture all my life and emerged out of scripture, it seemed, just the other day. I know you must get this renewal of faith feeling, too, after you have, since you felt down under, fighting the good fight, surviving the battles and wars of the good faith life with the help of God. Lord, restore my faith!

When we speak of debt, do you not feel a sense of indebtedness to God, to Jesus, for dying, for you, for the wages of sin is death [Romans 6: 23, KJV, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”]. Of course, non-profit organizations could get me gain reductions in school loans or write-offs until it is paid—all said and done and I did that when I was a teacher. I was able to write-off school loans because I was a teacher but those school loans are paid, thanks be to God—-the Bachelors degree and the Masters degree. It’s just the Specialist degree and the Doctoral degree, I am in-debt for. It s good to get jobs that you can write-off federal loans, in the federal forgiveness programs.

With that said, I speak to you about this because many of our children are receiving school loans up to millions of dollars—-the costs of education by and far have exponentially increased as you go up the ladder to higher education but to start with, hopefully, our children are receiving grants that are free money to help with their education and scholarships that are free money to help with their education-even writing essays contests to get free scholarship money to help with their education. A seeker of education could also work for a non-profit organization for a number of years because the financiers will not write off the school loans indebtedness all in one year, you will only qualify for just so much loan monies. That is why most folks have a nonprofit business and a profit business to help write-off school loans. It takes time to get everything paid for and you intensively labor at it until it gets done strategically thinking it through because it can begin to feel like you are shackled to your student loans, the old ball and chains, enslaved or have a bond on your head because the financiers will not let you not pay your school loans even if you file bankruptcy to toss some bills away. You must still pay school loans in bankruptcy so the uneducated ministers think they are all the wiser for not getting educated, they better think twice because Jesus received the knowledge of God, Apostle Paul was educated in one-on-one tutoring by the most educated man in Greece, which gives a point to reference in your thoughts of how you are measuring up, in your preachings and teachings.

Is Jesus teaching you? Why are you hating education when you preach and teach to compete with the educated ministers, if there are any, then, in your neck of the woods, you are fortunate; so you are not the blind leading the blind?[Matthew 15: 14, KJV, “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. “]. Just soul-searchers hustling God, running after anyone in God’s business to compel them to break you off some of what they are getting, money, gifts, privileges, entitlements, even properties, so forth and so on. If you heard of lawyers, chasing ambulances, to get cases in order to build up their clientele to get paid, for life is feast or famine, then have you heard about ministers, chasing funerals, event days to get scheduled to speak and chasing other ministers or visiting other churches to get them to break off what they collected with them, to share in the brotherhood—-the one body.

In the church and in the courtroom, sometimes all the suits will blind you to the vicious competition but do not be dismayed when you finally hear the gossip someone—-a minister, a man or a woman of God put out on you to steal your potential for getting called to share in the brotherhood. It is down-right awful because those ministers who viciously compete, do not take the vow of poverty, they live the high-life, like rock ‘n roll stars, rhythm and blues singers out on the circuit—-touring around the world bringing home the bacon—-the cheddar, the flow; the money. Now, that you know the struggle is real, you must know that it is your relationship with God that gets you through the weakness of the flesh of man and keeps you going, in truth. God is a great god! Honor the holy name of Jesus Yahshuah!

I thank you LORD GOD for your help through the in-roads for the truth will not let me be denied giving honor to our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. Lord, let thy mercy be upon us [Psalm 33: 22, KJV]. Christ be with you. God be with you.

Some folks, neighbors you can not help or encourage neighborly interactions because of their illiteracy they champion aggression. With the influence of even one aggressive man upon them—-that aggression appears upon us. It is not enough to squat on the land trying to take all of the land then, it becomes trying to take a little more of the land for the new aggressor that is trying to get him some of the land, too, you know, it will become why not let us take it all. We will tell them in their faces, I take!

Well, thank God for Ironclad deeds. They cannot take and as far as I am concerned they cannot stay—-no more squatting and taking lands and properties. These awful neighbors are even contractually planting on lands that do not belong to them, built a home on lands that do not belong to them, set a trailer mobile home on lands that do not belong to them. Since Hurricane Charley threw them out of the mobile homes they had, they drifted to our lands, saying we did not have a place to stay.

Now, under the influence of the aggressive neighbor they now see fit to say in an unfit mind, I take. What does this say about God’s love, helping neighbors after the storm? But, some were squatting before the storm the idea to take was in their heart and in their mind.

Once they set up—-pitched their tent, they were upon us. Then, why not—-why don’t we take the church—-act like we have it all and treat them like they are the takers? The old reversal and make folks hate them and treat them like they are doing us wrong. Have you ever been in a situation that is manufactured-like, some folks say, orchestrated-like, you are the one wrong when the person that set it all up, the situation purposed to take, is wrong?

Not only are they wrong, with evil-intentions, they are possibly criminally-insane and it is not legal to take. God will have his way with them, you wonder why of the two Pecan trees they planted in front of the house they built all on someone’s else land that because they asked for half from others that God took one of the Pecan trees? That is half-of-the-Pecan trees illegally planted on someone’s else land. God is trying to tell them something and they are still not listening to God just the aggressor-neighbor, that hitched his wagon to this taking game, plot, scheme—-trying to get him some of the lands, too.

This situation sounds like the story of King Saul listening to his tribe and rejecting Prophet Samuel telling him, Thus saith the LORD GOD, delivering to him the Words of God. He was a legitimate—-legal King but he went under the aggressors of his tribe-Benjamin—-the Benjamites (Joseph’s brother, Rachel and Jacob’s son). This taker, self-righteous, self-appointed leadership, under lies for if you let him lead any one thing, he takes leadership over all things, especially under the influence you might say possession of the aggressor trying to get him some of everything and the power to do so—the power to take, using the acculturated words of this neck of the woods, they let me; why don’t you let me?. Well, no one is letting anyone take, not the one who first squatted, not the one who came after the hurricane, and not the aggressor who saw opportunity to get in where opportunity did not exist for him or those already trying to take—trying to get deeded or listed in the tax office.

God did not let them take and they are still in their fantasy saying, I take! Some neighbors-folks who are takers you cannot help, even after a hurricane. Give God the glory! Lord, I thank you!

In closing, the weather is not the only storm that is upon us and as much as you might not like dealing with people and have become a recluse and all, the storms in the hearts and minds of the people still come and go, effecting us all, at any given point and time, to all our chagrin and displeasure. In THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE ROMANS (11: 1-36, KJV), Apostle Paul spoke that salvation is open to all believers:

“I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,

Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.

(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.

I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes.

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.”].

Let the Spirit of the LORD GOD be upon us, for righteousness sake [Isaiah 61: 1, KJV, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.”]. Amen. God bless
