God is More than a Concept by Which We Overcome Our Own Pain

Yes, John Lennon stated years ago in "God" that "God is a concept by which we measure our own pain." It need not remain so. God is many things to many people. Your conception of or experience with God is as different than your fingerprints are different from the person in the next room.

Tonight I wanted God to save me more than He's ever saved or helped or healed me before. You know what his answer was to my great surprise. He said, "heal yourself. Help yourself. Save yourself." That was not the answer I was looking for, but it might just be the answer that will do until God in His mercy blesses me with His supernatural healing, help and salvation. I actually smiled when the realization came. Of course, it's so simple. If no one else can or will take care of and watch out for me, then who better than myself. If my parents are too old or too sick to care for me, I have to care for myself. If other relatives are too busy, too sick or too challenged themselves to care for me, then who better to care for me than myself? Of course, I can always use a helping hand by some compassionate person who has the gift of giving aid to others in need. And, with God's grace or favor, I will endeavor to be a helping hand when some person in need is brought into my life.

The Lord our God is One. Blessed be the name of the Lord for his mercy endures for ever.

Blessings for the new year whatever year you happen to be reading this.

Cubanos Gay: Adventistas y Cristianos

English title:  Gay Cubans:  Adventists and Christians

Si ud., o un familiar o amistad, piensa que quizas (ud./ellos) es gay (homosexual,) lesbiana, bisexual, transexual, transgenero, intersexual, travesti , o si ud. solo desea informacion de asuntos no bien conocidos en la iglesia Cristiana Adventista del Septimo Dia, le invito que siga leyendo.

Intente visitar la siguiente pagina de Internet:  Kinship Internacional de los Adventistas del Septimo Dia. En esa pagina ud. conocera personas que, de una manera u otra, a pesar de ser gay, bisexual, etc., siguen involucrado en la iglesia Adventista del Septimo dia. Algunos les interesa seguir su connecion con la iglesia porque de veras creen que es la iglesia correcta para ellos, y para muchos, porque predican el mensage de "Cristo nuestra salvacion" no por obras, mas bien, por su gracia maravillosa. Los Adventistas, ademas, tienen un mensage pro-salud muy impresivo. Incluso, en diversos lugares del mundo, los Adventistas tienen centros de medicina, en lugares, por ejemplo, como Loma Linda Medical Center (Centro Medico de Loma Linda) California. Tambien tienen hospitales y centros medicos y educativos en Africa, Brazil, Europa, las islas Filipinas, y muchos otros sitios. Finalmente, los Adventistas, son gente que intentan a amar a su proximo y no despreciarlo por diversas razones. Y, por supuesto, los Adventistas del Septimo dia, tambien tienen como principio mayor en sus vidas, amar a Dios (Padre, Hijo y Espiritu Santo) supremamente.


El grupo Kinship Internacional de los Adventistas del Septimo Dia no es patrocinado por la Conferencia General de Adventistas del Septimo dia. Sin embargo, hay algunos entre la clase intelectual, catedratica, progresiva o, simplemente, compasiva que apoya, en parte, los esfuerzos de   Kinship Internacional de los Adventistas del Septimo Dia.

Que benficios puede conferir Kinship Internacional de los Adventistas del Septimo Dia a gays, bisexuales, etc., que son actualmente Adventistas, o quienes fueron miembros de su iglesia?

  1. Hay quienes viven hoy gracias a Kinship Internacional de los Adventistas del Septimo Dia. O sea, la organizacion los ayudo a no desesperarse y hacerse dańo.
  2. Gracias a Kinship Internacional de los Adventistas del Septimo Dia hay personas gay que siguen hoy en una vida Cristiana, o Adventista, por los esfuerzos de Kinship Internacional de los Adventistas del Septimo Dia.
  3. Hay quiens han mejorado su auto-estima, y no despreciarse, mas bien aceptar que Dios los ama, Cristo murio por ellos tambien, Cristo quiere que ellos tengan una relacion de amor con el, y--muy importante--que se arrepientan. Ud. tiene que decidir que nivel de vida gay, u homosexual, Cristo Jesus desea que ud. viva. Hay miembros de Kinship Adentista del Septimo dia que creen que Dios no quiere que ellos tengan varias parejas o relaciones sexuales fuera de una relacion monogama. Otros viven vidas celibes pero aceptan que su orientacion es gay (homosexual) y que hasta que Cristo venga en las nubes del cielo, ellos seguiran con su orientacion gay (homosexual). Hay otros miembros de Kinship Internacional de los Adventistas del Septimo Dia que son de otra opinion y estas personas, mientras que no impongan sus ideas, pueden disfrutar de feligresia con la comunidad gay (homosexual) Adventista del Septimo Dia.

Es mi sincero deseo que ud. sea feliz. Que ame a Cristo Jesus. Y que nunca piense que para ud. no hay un lugar tambien en la feligresia de los Cristianos Adventistas del Septimo Dia.
Maranata (Cristo Viene Pronto.) Amen.

Ultra Life and Its Pleasures

Schedule one hour every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. on your smart phone, iPhone or appointment book to experience UltraLife (no space). You are setting aside more than a conceptual hour where you decide what constitutes UltraLife for you, but it becomes more and more real as the UltraLife hour kicks in every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. Why Wednesday? Wednesday, or Woden's (Odin's) day in Teutonic culture is Mercury's day in Romance Languages, e.g., Miercoles, Mercredi, etc. The  messenger god, Mercury, could not be a more proper day to deliver to you the joy of UltraLife. It is the mid-point of your weekly experience and you deserve a special day, if only a conceptual day that lasts 60 minutes. Oh but what joy can be experienced in those 60 minutes. They can seem like 1,440 if you delve deep enough into the luxuriant reality  that you have labeled UltraLife.

Why at 7:00 p.m.? Seven is a perfect and common number in world history. There are, of course, seven days. There are five major planets of the ancient world plus the sun and the moon. There is the concept of seven heavens, six days of creation and one of rest on the Seventh day. The number 666 is considered imperfect because it is one less than seven and using it three times compounds the imperfection.  777 would be, it follows, the most perfect and life-enhancing number one could choose.
Enjoy your weekly conceptual day of UltraLife. May it become the best "day" of the week for you.

The Devil is a Nanobot Inside your Brain and HowYou Can Remove it Safely

The personal devil explanation and its implications won't be addressed here. Of course, one has only to read the 'Adventist Review' for that traditional explanation; it is worth your while to investigate that line of thought.
