[Stupid] is a rather derogatory term that is often used to make fun of what is considered to be foolish behavior and thinking in impolite circles.  To use it in a sentence and provide some context: someone with more crass than class might say in response, “No sh**, Sherlock—even stupid people know that!"

What is not so well known is that the word is actually referring to being in a state of mind similar to a stupor, which is where awareness and comprehension of circumstances is essentially non-existent.

Be assured that there are a lot of stupid people when it comes to recognizing our Heavenly Father’s active participation in our daily lives.  For aside from things happening (both bad and good) each and every day that defies natural logic, all of us have (or at least have had) thoughts containing information that has led to ideas that could not have possibly been the product of personal experience and what is generally considered to be natural intelligence and yet, far too many keep going about their business without a clue.

If you are having hard time with that, just take a good hard look at the word commonly used to refer to the natural ability to know and understand things: IN-TELL-igence.  Could this not be actually referring to being told from within?

No, none of this is meant to be as insulting as it sounds.  For much of the blame for all of the stupidity rests upon what has been so widely taught in our Heavenly Father’s name for far too long.  For instead of encouraging us to want to believe that He truly is actually with us, far too many have been led to believe that our Heavenly Father is (at best) merely looking down upon us from Heaven.

Making that even worse is what has been taught about our Heavenly Father being an angry God, who looks down from His throne to see if any of us are living righteous lives in accordance to the instructions given in His Holy Bible.  For anyone who can be truly honest with themselves knows that they cannot measure up to His perceived standards of perfection.  Subsequently, the last thing they would want to believe is that He is actually there with them.

No, the Biblical accounts of our Heavenly Father having personal interaction with the likes of [Enoch], [Noah], [Abraham] and [Moses] have not been ignored, but the emphasis has been mostly placed upon the false notion that they had proven themselves worthy of His favor when the absolute truth of the matter truly is that there has never been anything good about any of us apart from Him.

Yes, it is indeed written: Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt. Your lips have spoken falsely, and your tongue mutters wicked things. [Isaiah 59:1-3 NIV]

However, it would do us well to think of this separation as being like being in a bad marriage where the husband and wife still live under the same roof—even sleep in the same bed together, while their hearts and minds are worlds apart.  For the absolute truth of the matter truly is that our Heavenly Father has always been with each and every one of us since the womb, but of what good is this to either Him or us when we do not want to recognize His presence?

Yes, He could make it undeniable by just making Himself physically visible, but some would only want to bow down before Him out of fear of what He could obviously do to them if they did not while others would only want to bow down before Him out of desire for personal gain when He wants to be loved for the goodness of His heart.  Hence: the real reason for why He chose to hide His omnipresence from our physical sight.

No, our Heavenly Father’s ways are not nearly as mysterious as it has been so widely taught, but they are much higher (in regards to purpose) than our own.  Therefore, they can appear to be quite a mystery—especially to those walking around in a stupor.

Speaking of such, I recently had quite an experience.  For I woke up with my physical sight significantly impaired, and as if that was not enough to put a great scare into me, the only voice in my head that I could hear was the one telling me that my eyes would remain blurry since there was nothing that could be medically done to fix them.

Yes, it was rather stupid of me to despair.  For I know, which goes far beyond merely having a great amount of faith on account of the [witness] of His Holy Spirit, that nothing can happen unless our Heavenly Father allows it to, and I also know that everything that has ever happened to me has been for His glory and my own ultimate good.

No, none of our thoughts should be taken too much for granted.  For the devil and his demons are allowed to mess with our heads at times.

Alas, I fear that I am still far from being perfected, which should serve as sufficient proof in and of itself of such.  For the one who fears is not perfected in love [1 John 4:16-18].

Missing Scripture?

First of all, please understand that none of what is to follow is meant to unfairly demean, embarrass nor insult anyone for anything they may want to believe is the truth. For I have a spent a great deal of my life stumbling around in the darkness of spiritual ignorance while fully believing that I was walking upright in the Light, and it was not until our Heavenly Father started making Himself real to me (as opposed to just being a character in an ancient book) that I starting realizing how deceived I was.

Another thing that needs to be explained beforehand is that all references to our Heavenly Father, who truly is the Lord God Almighty and the Creator of all that exists apart from Himself, in this piece are also references to His only begotten Son, who truly is the Lord Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit. For they truly are one and the same with one another.

Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:20-21 NIV

[2Peter 1:20-21] is a good place to start a serious discussion on the possibility of there being some missing Scripture. For if it cannot be accepted on faith that all true Scripture comes directly from our Heavenly Father, there is no reason for paying all that much attention to what is contained in what is claimed to be His Holy Bible. That is, except for maybe as a source of historical references and as part of a study of ancient philosophies.  For its contents would be from just people not so unlike ourselves.

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them —bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping. 2 Peter 2:1-3 NIV

[2 Peter 2:1-3] is the second part of the passage that started with 2 Peter 1:20, and it is certainly relevant to this discussion. For it touches upon the absolute truth of the matter truly being that not everything that has been (and still is) taught in our Heavenly Father’s name truly is of Him.

More specifically, there has been much coming from many a pulpit that has led scores of congregants to lean toward accepting that much (if not most) of what is contained in our Heavenly Father’s Holy Bible is nothing more than merely the personal observations of people who just happened to be alive way back when. Taking that even further is that it has been taught that it was another group of mere mortals who decided what would be included in the official canon of Scripture, which leaves the door wide open for speculation on the possibility of something important being left out.

Yes, it can be argued that our Heavenly Father was the first to open that door. For there is a reference to a prophecy given through Enoch in [Jude 1:14], and there is no mention of it in the Book of Genesis, which is where one would naturally think that his words would be recorded.  That is, unless the Book of Enoch should have been included in the official canon of Scripture, of course.

Alas, there would not be any desire to speculate about the possibility of missing Scripture if there was not a wanting to believe in something that is either not included in our Heavenly Father’s Holy Bible or not appearing to be made clear enough for satisfaction. A good example of this would be the importance of the [Bookof Enoch] to those who want to believe that there really has been a true battle between good and evil angels going on since the Garden of Eden, and that our fate rests upon who ultimately wins.

The key to truly knowing and understanding is to truly have a very close and personal relationship with our Heavenly Father. For without that, there is no way to really know if anything contained in His Holy Bible is any more true than what is contained in any of the other texts that are held to be sacred by others.

Be forewarned that much of what our Heavenly Father wants to personally reveal to you that will come as quite a shock. Well, at least it did to me. For there is much about what He actually says is absolutely true that is quite contrary to what has been (and still is) taught in Him most holy name.

One of those things is that His Holy Bible was never meant to be employed as a book of instruction—certainly not in the same way as a school textbook on mathematics, science nor even history normally would be. For His Holy Scriptures were given to serve as written confirmation of what He wants to personally reveal to each and every one of us, on an individual basis and without exception.

No, it will not be the same for all. For it all depends upon what our Heavenly Father wants to accomplish in and through someone that determines when (and to what extent) He will allow and enable them to enter into His absolute truth, but be assured that this does not mean that some are more important to Him than others.  Tragically, far too many refuse to answer His call to come closer to Him on account of not considering themselves worthy when He is the one who justifies.

If you have not quite caught on yet, I am here to say that there is no missing Scripture.  For the true versions of our Heavenly Father’s Holy Bible do indeed contain the sum-total of His Holy Scriptures. Let’s leave a discussion on which versions are actually true for another day—okay?

No, I am not an authority, but I am authorized.  Not to speak for our Heavenly Father, but to boldly proclaim that He does indeed speak through me at times.

efoods Direct

While I was offline due to a lightning strike, the lovely and talented Ms. Hannah Phillips sent me an email to ask if I would like to publish a review of their products.  Be assured that I was very excited by this offer.  For unlike many of the previous offers that I have received to review things, [efoods Direct] wanted to actually send me something to try, which is the only way that I know of to do a proper review.

Yes, I did indeed accept her offer, and I have started looking out of the window in the hope of spotting the mail carrier before our puppies do—despite not knowing just exactly when it should arrive.  Hey, if they get a hold of it before I do, there won’t be much left to review.

In the meantime, I was asked to also publish some sort of an announcement.  Yes, that is what this is, for those who are keeping score at home.

With my beleaguered brain being scrambled more than usual on account of having to learn how to negotiate with a new computer, I haven’t done much research on efoods Direct yet, but their website appears to hold a wealth of information.  What I have determined is that their products may be of great interest to those really into disaster preparedness—not to mention those who want something really good to eat to put on the table at home without having to actually cook.
