“FYI, To The Gathering Kindred Spirits”

Beloved, I have so much to share that I believe I must become a better manager of my time, less sleep, more focus, perhaps. Five hours of pretty good sleep a night may be considered excessive by some under the circumstances. For now I will continue to sleep till I awaken and consider it good enough, as they say, so to speak!

Anyway, enough of that, I’ll try to focus on the point for sharing. Please bear with me, I’ll try to make it worth your time.

First I would like to put forward, my recommendations for two individuals most worthy of our sincerest admiration and expressions of our love. I trust our group will come to agree on their worthiness! I recommend John Fogerty and Emy Lou Harris for their contributions to our cause.

Specifically, John Fogerty for his album “Revival” and Emy Lou Harris for her album “Angel Band”, I once commented that she has the voice of an Angel and I stand firm in my assertion.

For now I will direct my focus to “Revival”, as I believe, perhaps unknowingly, John was quite possibly inspired to create it for my benefit, though it has been a blessing to many! Several of the songs fit perfectly to the needs of our time. And to what I have authority to share, regarding how they apply.

The first song on the album, “Don’t You Wish It Were True”, I say for some, what the song reflects, has been true for quite some time.

You can find the entire album on You Tube, I highly recommend it to my friends.

Basically it reflects the nature of the Kingdom of God, some would contend it refers to a future possibility. I on the other hand have reason to disagree. Because I am aware of the concept of the Sheepfold. Where the called can enter for much needed rest and go out again to continue in the work they are called to perform.

My Boss said, the Kingdom you seek is among you, as He spoke to the disciples. I have found that the space under my Maple tree, for one, serves the need perfectly. So for those who wish to experience the Kingdom, they have only to Gather together Spiritually and wherever they are, so is the Kingdom. Now, I know you will not find it hard to imagine, how uplifting, John’s song has been for me. And I trust it will be for you also, it’s quite a gift.

Again, please bear with me! The second song “Gunslinger”, is of equal significance to me, as I am about to explain! It speaks of how the lawless one’s, have come to take over what was once a peaceful place, a town, as it were. The abuses were severe on everyone, not even the old judge, was spared. It seems that the lawless, have no sense of decency or respect. So the people began to think,(Which served as a prayer.) that they had need of a Gunslinger. Someone of sufficient toughness to handle the lawless and restore the peace in their town(With the full support of the citizenry of course, it’s a rule!).

So what in God’s Name, literally, does that have to do with me, well Beloved, I’m about to tell you. It seems my Boss, in His Infinite Wisdom, determined to train me, as a “Gunslinger”. Hold on, don’t jump to any assumptions, be patient I’m tellin’ the Truth. You know what happens when we assume, or did your memory temporarily fail you (Help us beloved Spirit, bring to our rembrance before we falter, whew, that was close!).

Those who have been following me closely know that my Boss allows and encourages me, to embellish enough to entertain, for the prevention of boredom. Let me know how I’m doin’ when you have a chance!

Okay, focus, focus wrap it up. Hey, don’t rush me remember, don’t quench the Spirit, which includes rushing, I don’t control the pace. It’s not helpful to be in a rush, okay.

Alright, back to the explanation, I have been thoroughly trained as a “Spiritual Gunslinger”, the Gun I wield, is a metaphor for the “Word of God”, you remember, the Sword of the Spirit is, “The Word of God” and is more powerful than the fiery darts of the wicked one’s.

I’m here to help the citizenry, so to speak, clear out the lawless one’s(false professors) from our domain, as it were, good metaphor don’t you think. Like I said, I have my assignment and am prepared by the Best to fulfill it.

As you can see my confidence is not of myself, it is solely(no pun intended)based in the Power of my Boss. I have learned how Utterly Trustworthy He Is. My faith, absolutely, admits no doubt, it’s another one of the rules!

Speakin’ of rules, I can only serve those who believe me, it’s tied directly to, without faith it is impossible to please God and if there was ever a time to please God, it’s definitely now! The progress of our success is reflected in our ability to fulfill our individual purposes in the Body of Christ. Our task is to help one another to do just that!

For those of us whose awareness has reached the level of expectation, to be curious of where we stand approximately in the continuation of the eternal plan, I am aware of a hint.

You’ll find it in the Twelfth Chapter of The Book of Daniel, for those prepared to have eyes to see and ears to hear, what the Spirit says in this our time!

Have a truly Blessed day and every day hereafter!

In sincere love, Michael

“I’m a Teacher not a Preacher”

Beloved, I was not called to tell people what to think or what to believe, that foundation was being laid over two thousand years ago. Throughout the history of God’s dealings with His Creation, the effects of His Preachers has been temporary at best. Because the spirit of this world sets in to confuse the message, even of those whose words come from a true understanding. God, therefore, continually warned to guard against our tendency to be misled and our willingness to refuse to heed His Warning. Beware, God’s Spirit will not endlessly continue to strive with the spirit that resist It’s influence, just sayin’!

My purpose is to help the willing seekers, to understand what God is saying, in this our time, I’m a Teacher. If we the willing, fulfill our individual purpose, God promises our success. It’s imperative that we pay attention and respect the functions of the individual callings of the members of the Body of Christ. Also we must be diligent to identify those who claim to be members of the Body, but by their fruits, prove they are not.

In troubled times, such as we are now experiencing, it becomes ever so important to keep in mind, just what it is that God through His Christ and His Spirit, is indeed promising.

Feel free to carefully consider what I have been given authority to say regarding the Promise.

In the here and now, as we dwell as sojourners, we are to experience not being of this perishing world system, while at the same time, doing God’s work within it. Not a difficult concept, if we stop to think and we can’t afford not to think carefully.

We are promised, as long as we pay close attention, stable relationships within the Body. Stability within our own mind, stability in our relationships with one another as members of the same Body, stability within the various and sundry groups acting in unison within the Body (ex. Our families), chaos is not allowed to exist within the Body because of it’s nature and that is an unchangeable rule.

When we fail to experience the Promise, it’s because we have strayed from the Path which produces the experience. Not because the Promises of God have failed to produce the intended result.

If we allow ourselves to be honest with one another, it is obvious that we have strayed from the Path, as individual members of the Body. In Truth, we have failed one another and we have failed to progress, so as to experience the Promise.

If we are surprised, it is because we failed to pay attention, it is written, that we the willing but confused, would arrive at our present predicament. I can honestly say I was not surprised, I’ve been aware for quite some time. That’s what set me on my present course, the quest for answers regarding what to do next. I don’t deserve a cookie, so to speak, for my awareness, it’s just because my Boss has been busy implanting His Plan, don’t you see (of course you do), that’s why the Spirit is drawing us together at this our time.

Well I suppose that’s enough for us to think about for the moment.

Have a truly Blessed day and every day hereafter!

In sincere love, Michael

Why: Good Question! Because I am doing my best not to put the Light I’ve been given under the Basket. I’ve recently been sharing from my experience of emerging out of the dark tunnel part of my life, into the marvelous Light of “Consciousn-ess”! Some might say, WHAT, or others might say WOW, depending on their perspective. But what I’m trying to convey is where I have been, where I am now and how I got here. Dr. Jordan B. Peterson played a part in this process. Let’s just say that he’s the Jordan that I crossed to reach the Promised Land of where the Fully Awakened Dwell! And for those not being too poor to pay attention for two and a half hours, they can quite possibly discover a Pearl of Great Price, so to speak, just sayin’!

“Are We Stupid?”

Beloved, I recently wrote that although my Boss found me slow, through His patience He proved me not to be stupid. Or words to that affect.

So I propose these questions.

If we base our understanding on what is described as common knowledge, that is accepted by most of our peers, only to find out that it renders us dysfunctional, were we stupid or merely misinformed?

If we find ourselves struggling because we have more important questions than the answers at our disposal prove adequate for resolution, does that make us stupid or just unprepared?

If after our best effort we find ourselves incapable of solving the problems we face, so that we become overwhelmed, are we stupid or just lacking proper solutions?

I suppose that’s enough to ponder to justify the point I hope to make.

In all my experience over the past sixty six years, I have yet to come across even one stupid person. I believe that I have benefited from my interactions with other human beings in both positive and negative circumstances. I believe it is tied to that original, created in the image of God aspect. Though I am fully aware that many, perhaps an understatement, have strayed from their purpose. I was taught that it was wrong to call people stupid, or foolish, now I have a firm grip on why.

Though I am aware that I and everyone I have ever met have been fully capable of doing dumb things, that does not meet the standard for stupid. I believe that stupid requires one to be incapable of learning from mistakes. Most people who may appear stupid, are quite possibly merely hard headed, yet fully capable. Whoops, I am aware of an exception, God in His Wisdom, in times past and to this present day, has rendered the stiff-necked stupid in hopes they will tire of the effects of dumb and be transformed. This has always been an extreme solution warranted by extreme circumstances for individuals as well as groups. Thus the instruction of, “The Fear of God is the Beginning of Wisdom”, the reward of being hardheaded is never pleasant. Those who have loved us have hoped for and expected better from us, really.

Forgive me, I feel compelled to share this: long ago and not so far away I was led by the Spirit to have a card made up, like a business card but just informational. On the front it said, “Offering Good Advice For Those In Need, When Bad Advice Simply Will Not Do.” On the back it said, “Advice in problem solving in all aspects of life.” And, “Proper Solutions Solve Problems Without Creating New Ones To Take Their Place.” What can I say I was responding to a Bold Spirit. To the best of my knowledge, anyone who took me seriously and put me to the test, was ever disappointed. However I must admit I never got around to putting out a complaint box, I was rather busy.

As I said please forgive me, let us now return to the delimas proposed by the previous three questions.

Some things are True, those who give up prevent themselves from reaching their own goals, so don’t allow yourself to give up, no matter the difficulties. Anyone who thinks that’s easy for me to say, simply lacks the facts. This life is for our education and testing, and as long as we’re here there’s no escaping it. Deciding to take a trip without leaving the farm, is always disappointingly temporary. What can I say I lived through the Seventies. If you smiled that means you are aware and that’s a good thing! If you laughed uncontrollably, try to get a grip before you get the hiccups or worse, I don’t have insurance.

For those who are inclined to beat themselves up, mentally or physically, for their own inadequacy because they actually care, I’ll let you in on a not so little secret. If you have truly been doing the best you could(caveat)it’s time to stop, we have more important things to do, really I’m telling the Truth. If after careful consideration you came to the conclusion you lacked the effort to do your best, get over it. There’s more at stake than you can possibly imagine and giving it your very best matters. No matter what anyone may think, everyone matters, it’s inescapable. All of our words and actions end up on one of the two sides of the scales. For those who are aware things are not looking so good, not having their head in the sand, so to speak. Just refuse to hear the call to action and check out how that works. I believe it was a fellow by the name of Edmund Burke who said, all that is necessary for evil to prosper, is for good men to do nothing. (No offense meant ladies!) I say if we do nothing, we can not claim to be good. The key lies in preparing to make certain that our actions are proper, lest we end up making matters worse. Being unprepared has brought us to the severity of our present situation.

There’s more to the secret I mentioned, it’s time to pay attention. It is true that we have been living in dark times, spiritually speaking, and doing one’s best was difficult to put it mildly. The fact that things have not been going well was expected, though unacceptable, it was written these days would come. Because people in general were unaware they were asleep, a wakeup call was required and God’s timing is impeccable. To sing the praises that God is Good, when things are bad can appear ridiculous to some. The fact that God is Good and the Source of All Good is beside the point. The problem is that when mankind loses track of God, in Spirit and in Truth, bad things are literally bound to happen. And until we wake up and address the real problem, getting worse is inevitable. So the question is who’s awake and what in the Name of God(“The Word”) is it going to take to awaken those who have not been struck stupid?

Well as I’ve been sharing when given the opportunity the help we have so desperately needed has arrived, in fact it has been at work for some time now. Some say twenty years, I tend to think it began in strength forty years or so ago, but I’m certainly not hear to argue, I have an example to follow.

I’ll do my best to quote accurately with the aid of my helper, all of creation eagerly awaits the early and the latter rain. With Jesus and His faithful came the early rain, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, but in time the confusion brought by false teachers caused the power to dissipate in spite of the claims of men, like I said I’m not here to argue, God knows.

I believe and have no doubt that we are being given the latter rain for all prepared to receive. Once again the outpouring of the Holy Spirit will prepare the willing for the work of this our time. Only the humble will know their need and receive God’s help, there have always been rules. The proud need not apply, my advice would be to get over it as soon as possible, time is a wastin’ as they say.

Beloved be not deceived, we will be known by our Fruits, which have been made manifest. Known to one another and to our Lord and Master. We are being called to prepare ourselves to bear fully the Fruit of the Spirit. Patience, Kindness, Longsuffering, permit me please, ect., without the Fruit of the Spirit and the whole Armor of God we will be unprepared and unworthy of the Spiritual Battle that lies ahead.

The called and the willing must help one another to ensure that we have been fed fully on the pure milk of the Word, so that we together can progress to the meat, the times ahead require our strength.

I am committed to the work ahead and to do my best in service to the true body of Christ and the Spiritual Gathering of Kindred Spirits.

With God as my witness, my Lord and His Spirit bearing witness, I have been given authority to speak.

I have been called and chosen to serve the Living God as a Pastor and Teacher in the Body of His Son on this earth. For those who seek answers to questions, do not hesitate, you have every right to expect answers, the Lord rewards the pure in heart.

I am Michael the Pearldropper at your service.

In sincere Love, Michael

A Time To Share! The toughest time of the year for depression is coming. Depression and anxiety are very personal. Everyone says: “If you need anything, don’t hesitate, I’ll be there for you. ” Most of the time (despite the best intentions) it just doesn’t happen…..I’m going to make a bet, without being pessimistic, that out of my Facebook friends that less than 5 will take the time to read this to help raise awareness of and for those who have these challenges. Many of us that suffer depression can’t discuss with our families for one reason or another. FAMILIES please understand the holidays are a tough time for us inside we might stay to ourselves and not participate in family fun but believe me we want to and then we beat ourselves up because we can’t or didn’t. Be understanding this year. Just being around our family n friends means we ARE trying. We might be quiet and sit in a corner but we are there and are content to watch. Depression and anxiety suck.. Tell your depressed loved one it’s OK n your glad they are atleast able to get out of bed . Don’t get angry and argue with your depressed loved one at Christmas time. They don’t want to be that way anymore then you do. It is not something you can just snap out of. Enjoy the time together it’s holiday season. Love each other everyone!
