Must read from Running from Babylon


Today was the last day on the farm. It was a nice week and I was very glad for the solitude and taking care of all the animals. But somehow I caught a cold that is making me very tired and achy. There is a wonderful post that I believe everyone should read

Running from Babylon

good night everyone!

Alex Jones on the Corbett Report

The coming world government...


I'm not feeling well today, but I did go out to feed the chickens and the cows and had a fried egg sandwich with the freshest egg! So I am just reading online for the most part. I found this amazing post from J. Preston Eby:

The Coming World Government by J. Preston Eby:

To those longing for the coming of the Kingdom of God upon earth, today's march of history-making events has special interest. Milleniums ago ancient prophets saw our times, prophesied the rise and fall of world empires, revealed the frantic efforts for global peace and d├ętente in the last days, and finally outlined clearly and unmistakably the last great world empire of all. The Spirit of God has revealed the course of human history today. He shows the finale of the effort made by mortal men to resolve their differences and live peacefully, every man beneath his own fig tree and by his own vineyard.

In the days of Daniel the prophet, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, had a dream in the night. He awoke disturbed, perplexed. "Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcercers, and the Chaldeans, for to show the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king" (Dan. 2:2). The king shared with them his problem. He was certain the dream he had had was a significant one. But now he could not remember any of it! So he called upon the magicians, the astrologers, the sorcercers, and the Chaldeans to tell him the dream and to give him the interpretation of it. It was common practice for these men to give the king fanciful, colored-up interpretations of his dreams. They were usually twisted to please the king and build his ego. But now there could be no guessing! They were called upon to not only interpret the dream but to provide the dream. They were left speechless. They pled with the king to at least tell them the dream; then they would give the interpretation. But try as he might, the king was unable to remember his dream. In wrath the king ordered their execution.

Numbered among the wise men in Babylon was Daniel. He, along with others, had been taken into captivity when Nebuchadnezzar invaded and destroyed Jerusalem. The first he knew of the king's disturbance - and drastic action -was when Arioch, the captain of the king's guard, came to take him to the place of execution with the rest of the wise men. The record states: "And Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon: He answered and said to Arioch the ki ng's captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known unto Daniel. Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would show the king the interpretation. men Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven" (Dan. 2:14-19).

Waiting on the Lord

It's been a strange time at the farm this week. My brother-in-law left me his truck but it is a stick shift and I went to get in it the other day to run to the store and realized that I would not be comfortable driving it. I have been applying for jobs because that is in front of me to do and I have two interviews scheduled for April 2nd. I went on Craig's List and applied for another position, because until I get a solid job offer, I figure I should keep applying. 20 minutes later I got called for an interview for the next day! So I had to call my parents and have my other sister come out and pick me up (45 minutes away) and drive me to the interview.

The interview went well, and the guy said, "I have to check with the other guy, but I think you probably have the job, I will let you know in a couple hours." Well, they are closed now so not sure what to think about that.

I'm at a loss on what kind of vehicle to get, an economic car, a van or a truck with a canopy, maybe something I could live in, in a pinch. Or possibly a little class "c" motorhome? Something cute that I could drive and has a bathroom? I only have $1000 to spend so hmmmmm, what to do, what to do. If it really was true that every decision or possibility in life caused a parallel universe to crop up, there would be millions of new universes, from all the possible directions I can take right now.

I've had the cash to buy a vehicle for a week now, but I am waiting on the Lord. I have put the job, and the vehicle, and the living situation in His hands. If I get a job, then it will be His will and if I dont get a job, then it will be His will. I am peaceful either way, because bottom line? I only want to do the will of the Father. And right now? I dont know what that is.

My little cow problem...


So I had a little cow problem yesterday. There is this tiny triangle of land that is fenced off with both regular wire fencing and electric fencing. Inside that triangle of land are some baby trees, that my brother-in-law is trying to protect from the cows. Somehow the littlest black cow got inside the fence. I dont know how he did because there was no visable holes in the fence, but there he was, looking totally pathetic.

The real problem lay in the fact that between me and the little cow was a big ol mean steer with horns that could be used in all manner of scary and hurtful ways. Now, I am not sexist, but I looked at this problem and knew that a man was needed, because this was way out of my league to deal with. So I called my brother in law and told him the problem, and he called his friend from down road and his friend came to rescue me...er I mean the cow.

Luckily it wasnt as hard a problem as I thought. We put some feed down for the steer and fenced him in, turned off the electric fence, and herded the little cow out of the fenced in area and back out to pasture where he belonged. Phew! Thank you Lord!

The root of all evil...


"And one of the company said unto him(Jesus), Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." Luke 12:13-15
"But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and [into] many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." 1 Tim 6:9-10
"Money - it's a hit. Don't give me that do goody-good bullsh*t" Pink Floyd
One business that is thriving in this depressed economy is the storage unit business. People cannot seem to get rid of all their stuff! It was his "great possessions" that stopped the rich young ruler from entering into the kingdom of heaven. When I cleaned my van out, I realized that I still had too much stuff. Stuff that has to be hauled around and managed and stored. So I have gone through it once and given away several boxes, but I know that I will need to go through it again and pare it down even more. Plus, stuff seems to accumulate. Sometimes we buy stuff we dont need because it is cool, and sometimes we keep stuff because it is cool, or sentimental. We brought nothing into this world and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

sigh.

Back at the farm...


I'm farmsitting this week while my sister and her family go to Disneyland. It's a nice break for solitude and time alone with the Lord. Unfortunely my batteries have died on my camera so I will have to use last years pictures. Too bad because orange cat is lying on my chest and it would be cool to get a picture of him. Although it is more difficult to type this blog with him here, his loud purr is very soothing. I will try to blog more later.

What!!!!?!!!

So I went to my very own bank today, Umpqua Bank here in Oregon to cash my tax refund check. I needed to have it all in cash because as you know, my van died so I need to get a new vehicle this weekend. I have banked there for the last several years and have never had an overdraft or any reason for them to not trust me. They told me that they could only give me $100 then and I would have to wait until the next day to make sure the check cleared to get more cash. !!!!

So I will be closing that account. I went to one of those check cashing places and was able to cash it. I'm sure! Who ever heard of such a thing? CRAZY.

P.S. Look hard at that logo. Does it look like a dissatisfied customer to you?

So I am going to look for a new pre-owned vehicle, maybe a nother van, maybe a little motorhome, maybe just a car, I really dont know yet which direction it will go. But no matter what I get, I hope I dont have to deal with this guy:

How does it all end?

The whole head is sick...


This was a couple weeks ago, but it is horrifying that it is really happening.

The pentacostals REALLY know how to praise the Lord. The Lord SHOULD be praised for everything. Get right with the Lord today. If you dont know how, please go here:

Perfect Peace


Hey guys. I found this video on you-tube. I went to a little pentacostal church today and they were teaching on perfect peace. Oh - what a timely message.
Isa 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee.
I realized that when I'm not peaceful in my life, it means I am not trusting in the Lord.

One quote the preacher today said was, "You want to live for God on your terms, not His." Yeah, amen preacher. So today I'm going to remember that when I start to worry about where I am in the wilderness and what is going to be my future, I will stop and stay my mind on the Lord, and trust in Him to have that perfect peace.

The Values Test


So now that I don't have a vehicle and I'm truly stuck at my parents until the Lord tells me to go (obviously it will be after I get my taxes back and can get a new vehicle) the pressure to be working or at least have a job has massively increased. So I decided to apply down at the local Red Robin. I waitressed for years when I was younger so I can do it again if I have to until I can get a "real" job. I mean, how hard can it be?

So I filled out the application and talked to the manager. He said, "Would you like to take our values test that all our applicants take?" I said, "sure!" I mean, yeah, one more foot in the door so to speak.

So the manager came back with a sheet of paper that had 18 concepts listed like, "a baby" or "a devoted nurse" or "a corrupt judge" or "global nuclear war." and you had to rate the concepts from 1 being the very best and 18 being the very worst. They had two columns, one labeled "the practice column."

I think, "I dont need a practice column!" and I started in. I figured that "global nuclear war" has to be the absolute worst so I rate it with 18 and decide that I will just work my way from worst to best. I think, "a corrupt judge" is next with 17 and then I find "a poisened water supply." I think CRAP!! I'm sure a poisened water supply is worse then a corrupt judge! NOW I understand why there is a practice column! So I try concentrating a bit more (I have to interject here to say how much I hate mind control bullshit like these tests!) and keep working away at it. So I get down to where there is only two squares left but I have three numbers. I count the squares to be sure, Yep...18. So I go back to double check and I had 13 listed twice! GRRRR! So I have to go and scratch out all the double numbers and change them.

So in the end, the sheet looked like a mess and I ended up writing a little arrow up from the bottom of the page with a little note that said, "sorry, I guess I should have practiced! :) " Too, bad there was not a square that says, "Thanks, now that I have taken this test I wish I was dead." So I came home feeling like I flunked the stupid thing and that I was too idiotic to even work at Red Robin!!!

My mom thought the whole thing was hilarious. I was telling her, that I think I put "A devoted nurse" as better than "a baby" do you think I will be counted down for that? I've never seen her laugh so hard in my life.

So please my reading public, Pray for me to get out of here!!!!

My van is dead...


So I went to stay with my aunt this weekend. She has had three major knee surgeries in the last 4 months and needs help with cooking and running errands and such. As I drove over there on Wednesday, my van began overheating. I would pull over on the side of the road and turn it off and wait for it to cool down so I could make it over there. I barely made it to her house.

On friday my brother in law came over to see what he could make of it. The transmission is shot. Since it already had a serious steering and backing up problem, we decided it was not worth it to sink any more money into it. I was so thankful to God that I had not received my taxes back yet because I might have gotten the steering fixed just to have the transmission go out.

So I spent Saturday cleaning all of my possessions out of the van. So now, I'm not only without a vehicle, but I am truly homeless as well. Although my parents have assured me that I can stay at their house as long as I need, I half jokingly told my sister, "I know the Lord hasn't just left me there, although Satan keeps telling me that He has."

But I know that this is a wonderful new opportunity to trust in the Lord. He will provide me with a new vehicle and a new destination. In the meantime, the trial of not having a vehicle and having to ride the bus, is a priveledge, as a son of God. Because the trials of our faith bring about the peaceable fruits of righteousness. Please lift me and my vehicle situation up in prayer. Thanks!
