God uses many Jewish traditional customs as teaching tools. The ancient Jewish Wedding Custom is one of those teaching tools. This traditional Jewish custom definitely is a detailed illustration of the Messiah’s (the Bridegroom’s) marriage to His Bride.
What have believers in Christ done with encouragement or exhortation? It is sad that God’s children do not encourage ALL their brothers and sisters in Christ, when they have the opportunities to do so—sad that so many believers, instead, think it is okay to pick and choose the people they will give support to, give hope to, give help to, show love to, inspire, strengthen, and etcetera.
It absolutely is Father God’s desire that all believers in Christ become Holy Spirit-filled children. Once they have received the Better Baptism—once they are Holy Spirit-filled—they then will understand how important it is not only to understand God’s characteristics or His image but also will understand how important it is to reflect them. The poems in My Spirit’s Musings emphasize that importance—the importance of living a life that reflects godly characteristics or the image of God.
Since 1908, January 15 continues to be an immensely important day—the reason today why Sorors all over this world are celebrating 109 years of sisterhood and service to all mankind. Happy Founders’ Day to all my Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated Sorors!
I’m praying that this is the year we will ceaselessly shine the Light of Christ throughout the entire New Year. Additionally, I’m praying that Father God will richly bless us in 2017 with love, peace, hope, joy, happiness, good health, and spiritual prosperity—the supernatural fullness of Christ, His only begotten Son. Shalom!
From my house to yours: I pray that everyone’s holidays are blessed and that everyone has a fabulous New Year (2017). Shalom!
Let us always be ready not only to rejoice with the folks who want us to celebrate with them but also be ready to care for the ones who need us to demonstrate compassion for them.
The Bride of Christ will be the true Body of Christ who has been completely sanctified—has been made wholly holy in body, soul, and spirit. Christ’s Bride also will be the truly born again and saved believers from every ethnic group and from every nation.
I neither paint nor draw, and, while I do take photographs, I took none of the ones in these illustrated haiku poems. For these reasons, I thank every artist and every photographer whose exquisite artworks helped me explain the meanings of my haiku poems. Most of my haiku poems that I included in each illustrated haiku are from Perfect Peace (2015)—my collection of haiku poetry. The other haiku poems were created between March 2015 and November 2016.
Though it is an uncomfortable truth, it is a truth nonetheless. Racism and bigotry are taught, and what the once down-low racists and bigots in America are teaching right now is that the melting pot metaphor that pertains to a heterogeneous society becoming more homogeneous was just a lie. This truth is why America’s racists and bigots will do their best to change America’s landscape—will try to change the face of America—from people of color back to just White America.
