long gaze out my window…

Across winter’s valley below.

 

Winter’s icy-dead fingers grasp the distant mountain

Springs promise does yet a little while slumber

 

Opportune Sunday dinner; bellies full,

vultures rising from the newly uncovered frozen carcass

 

Rising upon a thermal gift,  mimicking mans spiral of DNA,

instituting the cycle of life;

 

Rising ever higher, reaching toward Heaven

or is it Jacobs Ladder?

 

One must die, that others may live

God’s Providence: Christian, We Are Not Rudderless Ships

“Even for the non believer this sermon from C.H. Spurgeon is an excellent read for any interested in ‘The Nature of Things’ philosophy.

Christian [only call yourself that if you are a Born Again believer, believer in The Word of God – KJV], Psalms 31:15 states “My times are in Thy hand”.

This alone tells, confirms in us that we are not rudderless ships making way in a haphazard manner.  No, this tells us that all our experiences, the people we encounter, our very time and space does become funneled into a very specific time and place in history, as God did with  Esther [4:14] for the purpose of God.

 

14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Esther 4:14 [KJV]

 

Watch and listen carefully Christian, pray, pray that you may recognize the Providence of God in your life, recognize your personal “and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” time, place, specific purpose in the Will of God. “ -Greg Kelly

God’s Providence

by C.H. Spurgeon

“Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces. The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went. As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four. And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.”—Ezekiel 1:15-19.

 

WHILE READING THE SCRIPTURES, we tried to hint at the practical benefits of the doctrine of Providence. We attempted to explain that portion of Scripture which teaches us to “take no thought for the morrow, for the morrow will take thought for the things of itself.” Our blessed Lord had there uttered very precious words to drive away our fears, to keep us from distrust and from distress, and to enable us so to rely upon Providence that we may say, he that feeds the ravens, and clothes the lilies, will never suffer me to famish nor to be naked. Having shown you from our Lord’s own words the practical benefits of the doctrine of Providence, I thought I would endeavor to explain that doctrine more fully this morning. I am constantly talking about providence in my preaching, and I thought it quite as well to devote a whole sermon to explain what I believe are God’s great wonder-working processes which we call Providence. In looking for a text I found this, These “wheels” signify divine Providence; and I trust, while explaining them, I may be so assisted by God’s Spirit that I may say many things to you concerning God’s government which may rejoice any who are desponding, and lift up the souls of many who are distressed.

 

  1. Going at once to my divisions, my first remark will be that PROVIDENCE IS HERE COMPARED TO A “WHEEL.”

When the prophet had seen the “living creatures,” which I take it were angels, he opened his eyes again, and he saw a wonderful illustration of the divine Providence, and this exhibition was in the figure of a wheel. You must know that this is not the only place where the comparison is to be found; for among the classics, the Romans and the Greeks were accustomed to compare the wondrous works of God in Providence to a wheel. The story goes, that a certain king being taken prisoner, was bound in chains, and dragged along at the chariot wheels of his conqueror. As he went along, he kept looking at the wheel, and shedding tears—looking at the wheel again, and lifting up his eyes and smiling. The conqueror turned and said, “Wherefore art thou looking at that wheel?” He said, “I was thinking, such is the lot of man; just now I was here; now I am there; but soon I may be here again at the top of the wheel, and thou mayest be grinding the dust.” This was well for a heathen. The prophet had the very same idea. He was permitted by God to see that the wheel is a very beautiful figure of divine Providence. Let us show you that it is. ~more~

CHARACTER MATTERS: FROM WHENCE THIS BAND OF BROTHERS [FDC-GUNSIX]

“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”~Aristotle

Character matters.

Were we to ask the likes of the playwright William Shakespeare, what makes good character, we might be entertained by an amusing anecdote by the loveable, but mischievous, Puck from a Midsummer Night’s Dream on the various attributes that make up a good and memorable character. Likewise, we might equally be presented with the dark and sinister King Richard III from his play, Richard III, as a counter-example of what NOT to look for in character. In fact, all of Shakespeare’s plays abound with many examples, both good and bad to either emulate or be repulsed by the culmination of character vices and foibles.

One of our favorite characters here at FDC~GUNSIX is Shakespeare’s King Harry in his play, Henry V. Prince Hal (Later to be King Henry V) is exceptional on many levels. It is no mistake that Shakespeare attributed many admirable qualities to the King. Much of this is because, first of all, he was successful. Much of his success came because of his ability to inspire and lead men. In martial circles, there are few speeches more stirring than the speech that King Henry gives on the eve of the Battle of Agincourt.

The speech is iconic on many levels. First, it inspires men to battle against seemingly overwhelming odds. It inspires because it speaks about the value of shared sacrifice against these same overwhelming odds. King Henry is not asking his men to take a risk he himself is not willing to take. In this day and age, this brand of heroic leadership is a rare thing indeed! It is very rare for princes and kings join their troops at the front lines of battle. Princes William and Harry of Great Britain are modern day exceptions to this, as is King Abdullah II of Jordan. The common soldier respects this kind of leadership above all else. It says a great deal of a prince or monarch who is willing to risk everything for a cause he expects his soldiers to fight and die for.

Were all of Shakespeare’s work to be lost to the ravages of time and the forgetfulness of old men, and, this one speech, in this Shakespeare’s Henry V, to survive; Shakespeare would still be forever regarded as one of the giants of world literature. Why? Because he wrote about one essentially true thing that will take hold of a warrior band if it is nurtured by great leadership.

Have a listen to one of the most stirring martial speeches ever written:

Now, owing allegiance to no monarch or potentate, many a-warrior can still relate to this speech because it deals reverently with the sacred Band of Brothers. Every warrior, has his or her own sacred bond or brotherhood. Our particular band of brothers was first-of-all nurtured by a superb leader. First Sergeant Gordon Graves was an extraordinary leader of men. Like most of the great NCOs of our era, Top Graves picked up his trade in the Jungles of Vietnam where he served two tours—one with the 4th Infantry Division, another with the 173rd Airborne Brigade. He taught us young troopers the value of a respect that is earned and valued.

We were fortunate to have many NCOs who were exceptional leaders. Top Graves was, and is, in a class all by himself.

Here is a partial pic of the Band of Brothers from Alpha Battery 1/320 Airborne Field Artillery from our reunion in Seabrook, Texas in January 2014. Top Graves is in the front row in the center.

 REUNION

This is the most extraordinary bunch of men we have ever had the chance of knowing. EVERY one of them, and many more than are pictured here, we call our most dear and treasured brother. Gathered here, you will find street smart kids from Philadelphia or New York or Boston; country boys from the deep-deepSouth; and, a few from the Midwestern States like Indiana and Illinois. Some California cool types can be found here, and, kids who grew up in the Barrio. There is a Pacific islander from the island of Samoa. There is at least one Aggie from Texas A&M, and, even some kid who grew up in Mule Shoe, Texas. Right next to Top, a goofy, over-read, farm kid from Southwest Missouri who found a family in this brotherhood. We were paratroopers first. What we have in common is that we were ALWAYS there for each other; and, we will ALWAYS be there for each other. THIS is what the Airborne Brotherhood is all about.

We are older now. We’d like to think we are wiser. While FDC~GUNSIX are not betting men, we insist that it cannot be a bad thing having a member of your brotherhood that knows how to do the Siva Tau. All of you other Gentiles who don’t know what that is, you have Google, look it up! We are older now. Yet, we have not forgotten what feats we did when we were in our youth.

“We happy few….We Band of Brothers!”

Yes, character matters.

THESE characters matter most!

We Live in a Clockwork Universe By Harry Shaw, Bandera, Tx

Official Proclamation on this The Tenth Day of March in The Lords Year 2015 on the occasion of Harry Shaw Day, Bandera, Texas: 

clockworkuniverse

We Live in a Clockwork Universe

By Harry Shaw, Bandera, Tx (a Little Slice of Heaven)

We live in a clockwork universe where time is now the mandate of government. The politicians see to that. Twice a year we directed by decree to add an hour and/or lose an hour in our day. As if our futile attempts at controlling time will make one whit of difference with the universal clock. Our four-score-and seven years care little how we “spend” or “waste” our allotted time.

 

It is also a universal maxim in strongly centralized governments to want seek to control the remaining moral and natural laws. When necessary, these laws are open for “reinterpretation” and/or jettisoned if they do not fit the artificially defined boundaries determined by our central clockwork government.

 

The Great and Powerful Oz is above all a tinker. He tinkers with this and he tinkers with that–always behind the curtains so we are not allowed to see his grandiose schemes.  For he knows that “change” is a universal maxim too.  To control the change in the Mandate of Heaven, one need only control the allowable choices.  Whereas, once justice and morality was the bedrock which governed all change.  What was good and just defined what was changed or modified or strengthened.

 

Sadly, we now live in a world turned upside down. The Tinkers and Clockmakers seek to make morality bound by their own whimsical rules. Change need not be defined or definitive, it only need be facilitated by a simple decree. Today, people call each other “Brother” all the while roaring at each other with a previously unknown viciousness.  All because virtue has been left to the popular vote.

 

No thank you modernism.

Church Destruction I & II: Agent of State Inclusiveness – Tolerance is the Method, Hell is the Goal [Spurgeon] (Series)

Civil Public Discourse

*Earnest attention is requested for this paper. There is need of such a warning as this history affords. We are going down hill at breakneck speed.

HE Act of Uniformity, which came into effect in 1662, accomplished the purpose of its framers in expelling Puritanism from the Church established by law in England and Wales. Puritanism was obnoxious to King Charles II. and his court, and a large majority of the men high in office in both Church and State, chiefly for the godliness of living which it enjoined, and for the Calvinism of its teaching. With the ejectment of the two thousand ministers who preferred freedom and purity of conscience to the retention of their livings, Calvinism was banished from the Church of England, excepting so far as the Articles were concerned. Arminianism took its place. Then the State Church, which the great reformers had planted, and which some of them had watered with their blood, presented the spectacle which went far to justify the sarcasm of an eminent writer, that she possessed “A Popish Liturgy, a Calvinistic Creed, and an Arminian Clergy.” The ejected were Calvinists almost to a man. Previous to this period, some few Free Churches had been founded, and were Independent or Baptist, the latter being mainly of the General section, and of Dutch origin.

-Excerpt from Church Destruction I: Agent of State Inclusiveness – Tolerance is the Method, Hell is the Goal [Spurgeon]

*Again we call special attention to this most important theme. The growing evil demands the attention of all who desire the prosperity of the church of God.

HE period from 1688, when William III. began his reign, to the time of the commencement of the long reign of George III., has been described as “a quiet time” among Nonconformists. It was so in more senses than one. There was a cessation of open and organized persecution. The Laudian spirit still lived, but it did not reign. The battle between Conformists and Nonconformists was no longer as it had been, one of the sword and of force, but rather of the pen, and by means of that quiet, subtle influence which abettors of State churches know so well how to wield. It was quiet, too, in the sense that there were few instances of lively faith, earnest zeal, and whole-souled devotedness in the cause of the gospel. To a large extent, and with some notable and happy exceptions, it was the quiet of corruption and death. The profligacy of Charles II., and the perfidy of James II., had told upon the Court, upon the nobility, upon pulpit and press, and upon society generally. True religion languished; and, but for a small remnant of earnest and faithful men, the decay and death would have been complete. It was a fitting time for the propagation of the Pelagian and Socinian heresies. Arminianism, which is only Pelagianism under another name, had, to a large extent, eaten out the life of the Church of England, and Arianism followed to further and complete the destruction.

-Excerpt from Church Destruction II: Agent of State Inclusiveness – Tolerance is the Method, Hell is the Goal [Spurgeon]
