Getting On : Faith

Smile though your heart is aching!

from JB - Monday, March 03, 2008
accessed 807 times

The darkest hour comes before dawn!

A ray of hope and comfort, however small or worthless it may seem, is better than no ray at all!

Even if it only seems a speck follow the light at the end of the tunel and you will soon come into the warmth and brightness and joy of the light!

Isaiah 25:8
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.

Revelation 7:17
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Revelation 21:4,5
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

Matthew 5:4
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

John 14:18
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Romans 15:4
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

2 Corinthians 1:4
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

2 Thessalonians 2:16,17
Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

Had a weird experience today...

I was waiting for the bus, and a Japanese student from the college where I work was talking to a hippy sort of guy, late 30s, big beard, who was handing him a tract. My first thought of course was childhood memories of witnessing, but I thought, 'nah, he's a hippy. It must be about the environment or something'. Hippy dude noticed me paying attention and got a little nervous. Now I'm listening properly.

"I wasn't always a- (here he lowered his voice)-a *Christian*. I found the Lord when I was nineteen. I live with other Christians. We don't work, we just tell people about Jesus."

I was shocked my instincts were right. First I fought down momentary horror, then laughter. He looked up and saw me smirking. I could feel him rebuking my unreceptive spirit. This made me laugh out loud.

He witnessed on and on, lowering his voice whenever he mentioned Jesus or being a Christian. Hilariously, he couldn't understand anything the Japanese student told him. The student told him he wasn't religious but his family were Shinto. Fuckwit Hippy Dude had probably never heard of Shintoism and thought the student had said he believed in Jesus. He was thumbing through this phrasebook trying to say words of Japanese here and there. By this time other students (they are all friends) had joined the conversation.

After Hippy Preacher Man leaves, the students ask me what he wanted. Through my laughter I said, "He wanted to turn you guys into Christians!" They all had a massive laugh at that.'s SO nice to be a systemite. Especially a goaty one. :)

I think about giving up every god damned day for the last 11 years. I have come to realise the truth about life finally.

1. Everything is bullshit

2. There is no meaning to life

3. We are meaningless

4. People die everyday

5. I was born to die

6. I was born in a sect

7. I was a mistake

8. I shouldnt have been born

9. I was brought to this world thanks to the sekt

10. I want to rewind back to the nothingness that I came from.

...Maybe I`ll be luckier next time.

All you formers...I love you and would give my life for you. Seeing that I have nothing else to live for and we all come from the same seed. I belong to our brotherhood. At least I belong to something.

From Sean Palmquist of Swedish Cedar. Born on August 24th 1977. Veteran and victim of the Japan Victor camp matsumoto and Attack Team at HCS, Tateyama and former member of the Children of God aka Family of Love aka The Family International.

I love all you all who knew me...I really really do. I miss you all more than life it self. I still remember your faces. I cant suffer anymore. I came to the wrong planet. I am sorry if you may have memories of any time that I may have hurt any of you. Please forgive me.

I love you all more than myself.

My last wish is for my old friends from the victor programs and attack teams to contact me at and anyone else who knew me.

Everyone, I just called Sean Swede and I think he is ok, he just really needs your loving support. I, like most anybody read his post and got real worried, I don't want to see another Abe Brataan or any other ex-2nd-gener give up on life. A lot of what he says is true and I feel the same way but I will not give up and enjoy discovering life everyday! I feel like everyone here should self-medicate by doing exercise and taking lots of time off away from jobs and develop good friends, I know I have made this my number 1 goal and it's helped me greatly instead of taking care of God or boss or even family.

Please support him and drop him a line or email and keep nasty comments to yourself as I see many of you have before. I just think it's a damn shame when anyone fellow ex-2nd gener criticizes another's sincere effort to reconcile their past.

Hi Sean,

I hope you're not planning to do something stupid, as you seem to have your whole life ahead of you. Don't destroy your future simply because you can't see past today, Sean. Attending medical school opens up many doors to a succesful career.

If by "something stupid" you are referring to suicide, you have a skewed perspective. As you are stupid yourself, this is hardly surprising.

There is nothing inherently "stupid" about killing ones self, at least not any more so than living simply because you were born. Argh!! I'm being attacked by an existentialist spirit!! NOOOOO! Camus, I rebuke you in jesus name!! Ahh! Too much torchwood!! Nooooooooo! Get thee hence dostoyevsky! "It is hard for the dog. He too lives simply because he was born...."

There's a passage I got memorized:

Ezekiel 25:17.

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

I been sayin' that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, it meant your ass.

I never really questioned what it meant. I thought it was just a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker 'fore you popped a cap in his ass.

But I saw some shit this mornin' made me think twice.

Now I'm thinkin', it could mean you're the evil man. And I'm the righteous man. And Mr. .45 here, he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness.

Or is could by you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish. I'd like that. But that shit ain't the truth.

The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin'. I'm tryin' real hard to be a shepherd.

Oh Goodie Bible verses. I wanna try. Me to me to.

Ezekiel 21:3
Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I am againsth thee, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked.

Matthew 10:34

Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
Ecclesiastes 7:15
All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.

OOp's sorry you were posting on the "loving God Guy" How about this one:

Number 14:18

‘The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.’

This last one's really convenient for me, it allows me to beat my kids if I get mad at my parents and gives me wonderful backup!!

JB humm, why would you post this? Don’t tell me it’s “Just because!” Could it be you are looking for a reaction? Congratulations, you got a few now! Everyone does things for a reason whether they choose to believe it or not. Perhaps it’s time you go fill out an OHR! Good Luck :-)
