The One Year Bible

I cannot stay away from the truth and it may be better for you that I am no longer on film regularly to talk about God and the truth. Even when I look at my videos, I replay them just to pay attention to what I’m actually saying; when a mirror is given to a narcissistic bird it will make her fall in love with herself. So, here we write on God’s words this morning, rather than attract.


Long ago, I found an awesome little Bible app for the iPhone by YouVersion in which I enjoyed the “Plans” section that helps interested people like us to read through the Holy Bible. I successfully completed the “Working Through Failure” Plan, which I highly recommend to anyone who’s been through a rough patch in life. I loved its week long approach and light reading. From this precise reading arrangement I yoked a lot of validation and healing from the Holy Bible. God’s word pushed my heart into a healthier sun-shinier place than the crevice I’d cried open. Yes, I felt as though I was ready for more so I signed up for “The One Year ®️Bible” plan straightaway. I had no specific desire to read through the Bible with that plan other than to say, “Yup, I’ve done that. Read that. Check.” My heart simply wasn’t in it and my app got rusty for lack of use.

and let the discerning get guidance – for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise.

Proverbs 1:6

Now, however, with the end of the DPconversations videos and the Cover to Cover series which ended up looping back into the videos I had released previously (publicized from private view recently), I’m now interested in completing the year long Bible. It brings me joy to relate to God’s word, so completely, and I just can’t let it go. I must have it! So, since the impending call of faith will blister my heart if it has no avenue of release, I type and let it be known that I love the LORD.

Amen. Aju.

Let’s look at what the plan covered Today:

Genesis 1
Genesis 2
Matthew 1
Matthew 2
Psalms 1:1-6
Proverbs 1:1-6

If you read these passages Today, you and I will have covered Day 1 of the reading plan together. I read them and wrote down some notes on passages that jumped out to me from the reading…whatever most caught my heartstrings or my curiosity. I love God so much and I hope that you do too. Like a light, magic phenomenon, pretty and valuable gems, the Proverbs draw us close to the body of God, namely Jesus, and True Parents.

You and I

Picture from underneath my baby red-maple tree!

Finally, the soil supports creation under my love

It’s not under scorn-love besides the midst of evil

Creation rejoices with the children of God.

In slow ways and in patience we call our wins.

I see God’s stakes and I have not forsaken him.

Do you see him too?

Then we are the same, you and I.

You and I forever. You and I.

Introduction. Cover to Cover Be Useful! | DPconversations

Joyful perfect love

To Be Useful

I have no more tears

when I think of you

I’ve a friend all blue

It’s not so bad, have cheer

Joyful perfect love

The fun you bring to me

Wrench me not from Him

To fall from clouds on trucks.

Where your mind lingers, I knoweth not

But you have found my heart

You have put it in your threads

So we are not apart.

Joy is in relationships

True Parents’ transparent realm

In Jesus’ name redeemed from sin

Complete with love, behold!

truth is freedom

discipline ~ strength

origin foundation purpose

Now Come!

This is a ‘Cover to Cover’ article. It’s actually my take on the Introduction of the Divine Principle. I am having some problems with my computer, recently. I couldn’t bring myself to type out an article of the Intro to the Divine Principle so my technical problems served as a legitimate excuse to delay my work. I have been painfully mulling over a good delivery of the text for a few days. The Introduction itself is self-explanatory and very beautiful to read.

After ripping my mind apart for the best way to share the Intro with you, I decided to give it heart-to-heart with a poem. My reflection on being useful to God started with an obvious answer, that we become responsible men and women who can create His Royal Family on earth as it is in Heaven! Yet the human life is not entirely in the love-making phase. Of course, there is childhood, and the time when we are not mating.

I came to the conclusion that we are most useful to God when we are filled with joy. The act of sex is usually seen as the Fall but scientifically and from God’s untainted perspective, it is the most holy and miraculous love. Jesus and True Parents are the structure of God’s truth, not of your sins. The redemption of sin and the establishment of the restored Adam and Eve has now been fulfilled in True Parents. Sex, ideally, brings the most joy to God. People perverted love at its core with Satan and he owns you unless you choose to serve God and attend His perfect love with your life.

Jesus On the Water

Across the Misty Haze

A lonely dance on misty grey

Of his feet upon the water – in the distant haze

Nobody understood his life before the grave

Young man. Word Substantiate. God, Jesus.

Long before you knew him. Long before you cared

God treasured His body. At the First and Second Coming

To resurrect His body from Eve’s fallen world of women

Now restored completion of a new name: True Parents.

God did not create the Absolute truth to be proven wrong by you.

He did not make your religion to keep you from the truth

If guided by the lights of angels; All around Him people came!

Say, Jesus. Is that you upon the water?


I hope you enjoyed my poem. Leave me a “like” on the post. 🙂

Release

Branches of the One True Vine

No. It is not absurd to know the times

Spherical thoughts not singular planes

Train. To be free physically as the soul prospereth

Finally drawing her diamond threads

Prepare. Psalms 82 verse 6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”;

You are all sons of the Most High.”

Defend. Women who know their strength and place.

God’s Sons and Daughters bring joy and peace.

Truth. Ultimate self-respect on men.

Firmly stand in His repentance.

What’s The Woman’s Place?

Holy Trinity is One. God the Father, Jesus the Son, True Parents centered on Jesus at His Second Coming Sun Myung Moon the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Bible, especially the Old Testament portion, is very male dominant. God had to work through men. He doesn’t exclude the importance of women, however. If Noah hadn’t had such a good wife he probably would have been too broken to even build the ark to its end. He would not have been able to obey God’s commands perfectly. In other words, Noah, had good backup. (Genesis 7) What is a woman to do now, in the Completed Testament Age? She is not a man. Ideally, a woman gets married to a man and they have children in the covenant of God’s Holy Blessing that is beyond race, ideology, and time. It must be truly relaxing for women, comparatively, to just standby as husband does all the work. American women are not like that. We want to be part of the action. We want to be involved! We want to taste the passion and excitement that God wants to give to us!

“I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.”

Psalm 82:6

The reality, however, is that Noah and all men who are faithful and good like Noah are not the most exciting men on planet earth. Not to mention, their purpose and dedication to God is an act of service and daily routine. It requires not just brain of a womanly existence but also the brawn of man; God needs man-power. God’s expectation for faithful men really does take all their time, money, and strength. To love and obey God’s command is truly impossible for any man unless he absolutely loves God one-hundred-percent. As women born of God’s lineage and living completely in His grace, we see this in our men. Somehow, I cannot help but think back to Jesus’s attitude for God’s love—that God’s love is worth more than bread. (Luke 4:4) Jesus was the most selfless man. His perfect love was so strong that bread itself seemed to follow him around. He was not afraid to live for God.

Jesus, like Noah had been set aside by His Father (not Zechariah or Joseph but the Heavenly Father) as the special son. God took Jesus’s body and life here on earth as His very own. It is hard to understand the rejection he faced by the Jews when he told them that God is in Him and He in the Father unless we look at Sun Myung Moon. (John 10:34-39) Many so-called Christians rejected Him at His Second Coming too. It is not everyone who is prepared to ride the winds. Even those of us who would like to say that we are True Children of God are not as selfless and perfect in love as we would like to be. When we see Jesus and True Father, we see in Him a very perfect and flawless love that is more beautiful than the rose. It’s crazy that Jesus craved God more than bread, that at his Second Coming, he lived and breathed words to members day and night until his nineties when he died at the behest of the fallen Hak Ja Han…

We birth mankind, after all.

Women simply do not compare to these great men. We need men. We need things. We need bread. We need each other just as much as God needs us. The way we can stay involved in God’s Providence is to be faithful in everything we do and say. There simply is nothing else we can do! We are limited in Satan’s fallen kingdoms of this earth. Should we get bored to death with our path as the faithful Queens of the Lord we cannot turn around and delight in evil as did the Han Harlot of modern-day Babylon by killing off her husband’s oxygen supply whilst he lay in the hospital just to breathe. We just have to pray to the Lord to provide us with profitable engagement instead! Ideas will come to us. Most American women know that God’s law is not limited to men when He speaks about men. (Psalm 32:6) We birth mankind, after all. His laws apply to us too. We stand in the image of His Holy Spirit with True Father. They are the Kings in His image. God makes us who we are. It is our God given mission to establish His Kingdom of Heaven here on this Earth. We simply cannot help but bow our heads to God’s absolute Authority as the King of Kings.

Whetstone & Oil

Dedication. Sincerity. Compassion.

God’s word is in fact, the first building block of knowledge. Ancient quests for eternal life and spiritual enlightenment have all taken form of religion. In each religion is a warrior’s code. The Holy Bible provides every necessary tool for us to keep our minds sharp and our faith rustless.

God’s word is the sword that we only hope to carry in its beautiful fullness. It takes years and hundreds of hours of devotion to study. Everyday, children must awaken with their parents and have a chance to deeply and chronologically, in their own lives, relate with the word of God. Parents, especially mothers, have this divine duty to educate their children without frustration but with a love of learning, dedication, sincerity, and compassion. Our souls must be strong enough to handle the fire of God’s word day in and day out. Even if our husbands are gone on business for days or months at a time.

It is not difficult for a child to sit for one hour a day to hear his mother read God’s holy word. No, in fact, every child gains something from Hoon Dok Hae: Daily Scripture Reading gives form and distinction to their life character. Children are capable of watching TV for three-hours straight before they get restless. It is the sincere, compassionate, dutiful, and dedicated mother who will unfailingly wear her robes as a providential teacher to create the daily perfect environment for her children to attribute their time—one hour a day—to the greeting and spoken substance of God’s word. Mothers should never gossip but only speak in truth.

In the tradition of the Messiah’s 5AM Hoon Dok Hae readings, soon, children begin to develop strength in God’s faith. We shall not neglect the Princes and Princesses of Heavenly Father here on this earth even if fallen parents have done worse to us. Everyday, our swords are whet upon the whetstone and oiled before sheathing to prevent decay and rust. So too, our minds must be sharpened against God’s word. His absolute love, life and lineage covers our spirits in oil. Daily scripture readings provide health in both exercise and nutrition to our souls so that our own faith in God may never rust.

Fairytale Holy Blessing

Fairytale Castle

Everyone fantasizes about having a fairytale love but the ideal of a perfect marriage is closer to reality than we want to admit. Our traditions of sexual purity before marriage and centering our love life and lineage on God provide tools to keep a long healthy marriage despite setbacks such as Satanic parental influences and our selfish expectations of marriage. The good days are closer than we think.

Most Second Generation of the Unification Church, such as myself and my husband go into marriage as virgins. It is not unusual for the participants to even be so pure as to not know how sex is performed, with the penis and vagina. I was in utter shock when my husband put his penis into my body: I had not known such a thing was possible. The Holy Blessing gives men and women the opportunity to discover sex for the first time with God as their center. This pure union is vital to extending our innocence into marriage and then into the Kingdom of Heaven on earth and into the Kingdom of Heaven in Heaven.

Unfortunately, many setbacks lie in the wake of Blessed Couples. Satanic cultural influences are actually first the most threatening in the form of our parents, who have been reared in Satanic families. The most fearsome thing is when your mother-in-law, whom you trust with absolute obedience proclaims that you are not a virgin and brainwashes your husband and the entire family to treat you like trash. It is scary when you are unable to even finish college because your husband believes that you are promiscuously giving yourself to every fellow there simply because his mother told him so. How does one save a Blessing like that? It is only by God’s grace that Blessed couples can overcome such a horrific atrocity in their lives and continue their Holy Blessing marriage centered on His love life and lineage.

Men and women who are born of God’s lineage usually have very high expectations of each other. However, given our naiveté and the Satanic setbacks we do endure, it is sometimes unreasonable to expect our hopes for education goals, financial reach, and societal prominence to be established immediately. Instead, with great perseverance in the ideal we find ourselves following the thorny footsteps of God, Jesus, and True Parents in every step of our existence. The Holy Blessing is the only path to achieving the ultimate ideal.

High Soaring

Sunflowers in the sky!

So glad for you when you found your healing

But how long you took!

Patient and generous was I long enduring

Freedom cornered into books!

Now that You’ve come we come out roaring

Form our muscles and looks.

Against all odds we fly high soaring.

God got us off the hook.
