It is time for all of you to step up to your responsibility as human beings living, working, caring for one another.
That means – when one of you goes far off the rail, it is all of your individual and collective responsibility to make sure the damage that person does is limited and not allowed to hurt, maim or bring others along down into the bowels of hell.
Whatever else you do in this life, that responsibility cannot be shirked without your taking on, experiencing and paying the price for the sins of your brothers and sisters who you allowed to roam free among the shoals of evil that are all around you.
DONALD J. TRUMP – we call you out as a murderer, a thief, a cheat, a liar, a corruptor of others for what you perceive as your own good and it is time for this to stop. You are the illegitimate president of the United States – a position you attained by lying, cheating, corrupting others and conspiring with those like you to add to the world’s evil so you and those working with you could attain power over others and worldly goods.
You have only a very short time to live and you need to spend that time repenting for how you have spent what started off as a precious life intended to change the world for good, but you were not up to the task so you changed your life’s goals and have brought instead to all of those who hear your voice a misery that they do not deserve. You have made a pact with evil and are carrying out your promise to that evil being in a way much stronger than you could have carried out what you were put on earth to do for good.
When you agreed to remain silent and back the brutal murderer of Khashoggi your fate was sealed. Forgiveness is available to all of us. At that point, in your life and your journey – forgiveness was taken away from you. The intentionality with which you forged ahead and carried out your commitment to promote and back the person who committed that brutal murder, which further encouraged him in the path he then took knowing he had your backing, closed the doors to forgiveness, to love, to grace. In addition to no forgiveness, you shall live the rest of your life without love. There is nothing so painful as living on this earth without love.
You will walk this earth on hot coals in bare feet for an eternity. You will see others as you walk, but only a few will be able to see you. You will see Hitler, Stalin, and all those like them who went before and the pain you feel when you see them will each time overwhelm you. Any who try to give you succor or comfort will feel so much pain they will back away and never acknowledge you again. You will meet Roy Cohn again. You will see him, but he will not be able to see you. He asked forgiveness before he died so his way as he passes you is not nearly as horrible as your way. His youth, as one of the oppressed peoples of the world, turned his adulthood into one filled with evil doings, but something came back to him. – After you took everything you could from him and then rejected and turned your back on him – that flash we all have before death where he saw his life caused him to say “please, forgive me.” You will also see Joseph McCarthy, but alas he will not be able to see you. He caused much pain and agony to others unnecessarily, but his brain and soul, adled with alcohol and drugs for most of his adult life, helped to cause much of what he did as he struggled to break free in a long hysterical scream. But you – you saw, you understood, and you patterned your life after the evil you saw in other people. The good was never within your ability to understand, but you grasped the evil quickly, almost from birth.
To agree to be a participant in another’s brutal murder is that step forward from which you cannot return and you have taken that step. You emboldened a child of God to murder, in a horrific way, one of God’s own, who God held close because of his truthfulness and the road which he trod, willingly, to bring others to see, hear and live the life God chose for us all.
YOU REJECTED GOD DECADES AGO (“The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want) when you decided you would want for nothing in this earthly sphere because you would provide for yourself and you would do whatever it took to gain power, control and wealth. No green pastures for you – cement walls, casino games, roulette wheels, stealing bits and pieces from others all through that time of your life.
Great fountains of your own creation, water gurgling up in your hotels. (God restoreth my soul). When you walk through the valley of the shadow of death you will fear greatly because all of the beauty and goodness and light of that valley will disappear and in its place will be every gruesome monster, pit of fire, hellish horribilius that exists and you will have to walk through it to the other side, which will be even worse.
(Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil; for thou, God, art with me)
You created your life. You continue to destroy and make more difficult the lives of others. You extend yourself wherever you can if you see a chance to bring another human being into the evil in which you live. And you do so much more. That does not happen without a price to pay and you have arrived at that point where it is too late to turn around and to turn away – the price you have set forth for yourself will only grow larger as you continue to walk in the way of evil.
Those who walk with you, (Thou, God, prepares a table before me) hoping for earthly power and goodies in return need to be aware of what they are doing to their lives. When a woman starts to talk about lynchings and other kinds of evil preparing the path for you to walk with her when you arrive to speak for her in Mississippi has a price tag. (Thou annointest my head with oil). You have only an empty cup, but the power she seeks, with your help, comes at an incredibly high price – which she is more than willing to pay. All those who listen to you and her and cheer, also acquire a price tag they have to pay. All of those kind of things you have done in the past have all been gathered together along with the people you drew into your orbit.
DO YOU NOT KNOW, DO YOU NOT CARE WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR YOU? DO YOU NOT REALIZE HOW FINITE IS LIFE AND HOW CLOSE TO THE END OF LIFE YOU ARE? AND AFTER THAT…………………
A voice says “Cry out”
I answer, “What shall I cry out?”
“All humankind is grass and all their glory like the flowers of the field.
The grass withers, the flower wilts, when the breath of God blows upon it
Though the grass withers and the flower wilts the word of God stands forever.”
God is just and continues the chain of tradition that binds generation to generation
God’s love and justice is being established on this earth and God’s peace pervades the world.
“I am the resurrection and the life, says our God
Those who believe in me shall live, even though they die,
And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die….
Have you now known? Have you not heard? God is the everlasting God
God does not faint or grow weary, God’s understanding is unsearchable.
God gives power to the faint and to those who have no might God increases their strength.
Those who wait upon God shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
When I think of Khashoggi’s death I think of these words of Scripture………
“unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies it produces much fruit. ……Yet what should I say? God, save me from this hour? But it was for this purpose that I came to this hour. God, I glorify your name.” Then a voice came from heaven………….
