Which is it?

Each step one takes
Leads to the next
Until one stops
There is no progress
Once one halts
It is nobody's fault
But ones own self...
Then again,
Is the halt a given?
Is it a need?
Is it a want?
Is it a must?
You must trust
That predestined destiny
That so many have lost
Sight of for so long
That shows in our current realities
Perhaps within one's own self
Or those around us...
Life is fragile
But can be so rough
Each step takes us forward
Yet one wrong step
Can make us dust.

It is happening again

Brothers and Sisters... Please make time to read this... Think about how sinful it was then, how sinful it is now... We have the answers, we have the tools, we have Jesus Christ, but why, oh why are we not partaking in Him... The angels in this story were looked at as a thing, but we know they are not... Today Jesus Christ is looked at as a thing by so many, but we that know and believe in Him, know He us not a thing, but our Savior and King if Kings... Let us not be foolish... We are living in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah day after day... All over again... Let us pray:

Genesis 18:20-33

20 And the Lord said: The cry of Sodom and Gomorrha is multiplied, and their sin is become exceedingly grievous. 21 I will go down and see whether they have done according to the cry that is come to me: or whether it be not so, that I may know. 22 And they turned themselves from thence, and went their way to Sodom: but Abraham as yet stood before the Lord. 23 And drawing nigh he said: Wilt thou destroy the just with the wicked? 24 If there be fifty just men in the city, shall they perish withal? and wilt thou not spare that place for the sake of the fifty just, if they be there in? 25 Far be it from thee to do this thing, and to slay the just with the wicked, and for the just to be in like case as the wicked, this is not beseeming thee: thou who judgest all the earth, wilt not make this judgment. 26 And the Lord said to him: If I find in Sodom fifty just within the city, I will spare the whole place for their sake. 27 And Abraham answered, and said: Seeing I have once begun, I will speak to my Lord, whereas I am dust and ashes. 28 What if there be five less than fifty just persons? wilt thou for five and forty destroy the whole city? And he said: I will not destroy it, if I find five and forty. 29 And again he said to him: But if forty be found there, what wilt thou do? He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of forty. 30 Lord, saith he, be not angry, I beseech thee, if I speak: What if thirty shall be found there? He answered: I will not do it, if I find thirty there. 31 Seeing, saith he, I have once begun, I will speak to my Lord. What if twenty be found there? He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty. 32 I beseech thee, saith he, be not angry, Lord, if I speak yet once more: What if ten should be found there? And he said: I will not destroy it for the sake of ten. 33 And the Lord departed, after he had left speaking to Abraham: and Abraham returned to his place.

Genesis 19:1-13

1 The two angels reached Sodom in the evening, as Lot was sitting at the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he got up to greet them; and bowing down with his face to the ground, 2 he said, “Please, my lords," scome aside into your servant’s house for the night, and bathe your feet; you can get up early to continue your journey.” But they replied, “No, we will pass the night in the town square.” 3 He urged them so strongly, however, that they turned aside to his place and entered his house. He prepared a banquet for them, baking unleavened bread, and they dined. 4 "Before they went to bed, the townsmen of Sodom, both young and old—all the people to the last man—surrounded the house. 5 They called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to your house tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have sexual relations with them.” 6 Lot went out to meet them at the entrance. When he had shut the door behind him, 7 he said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not do this wicked thing! 8 I have two daughters who have never had sexual relations with men. Let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you please. But do not do anything to these men, for they have come under the shelter of my roof.” 9 They replied, “Stand back! This man,” they said, “came here as a resident alien, and now he dares to give orders! We will treat you worse than them!” With that, they pressed hard against Lot, moving in closer to break down the door. 10 But his guests put out their hands, pulled Lot inside with them, and closed the door; 11 they struck the men at the entrance of the house, small and great, with such a blinding light that they were utterly unable to find the doorway. 12 Then the guests said to Lot: “Who else belongs to you here? Sons-in-law, your sons, your daughters, all who belong to you in the city—take them away from this place! 13 We are about to destroy this place, for the outcry reaching the Lord against those here is so great that the Lordhas sent us to destroy it.”

Say No to Division and Yes to Multiplication

I am truly convinced
The devils favorite math subject is division,
Look around, if you don't believe me.
It divided itself from heaven...
It divides us from God to begin with...
Beginning at the garden of Eden...
It divided Cain from Abel...
It divided Lot from his wife,
As she looked back
Becoming a pillar of salt...
It divided us throughout history,
Black, brown, white and all cultures...
It divides us to cause hate and war
It divides us from ourselves
Losing touch from who
God created us to be,
As we confirm to Sin,
Thinking it is OK...
The devil is a master of division...
Even within the church...
Because we all claim to be different,
Yet, in God's eyes
We are all the same...
Even then it divides our thoughts
From the love of God...
And then we blame God for everything...
But the amazing thing is,
Through Christ Jesus,
It's division is a farce...
Jesus's life, death, and resurrection
Defeated it's division...
Subtracting us from sin,
Adding life and multilping us
To do greater things...
It started in fractions
Based on our willingness to follow
The path created for us...
To eventually becoming a whole...
So that division it tries so hard
Is a lie... A farce... A spoof...
What is sad, so many still believe it...
As they do some many other irrelevant things...
God forgive us, as Abraham advocated
For Sodom and Gomorrah... So must we too pray
For our Sodom and Gomorrah world...
Just as Jesus Christ humbly died to the end
We too must die to our flesh,
Over and over again...
To rise from the deafness we carry
On on flesh called sin...
The death of Jesus Christ
Was only the beginning of eternal life,
Imagine what it can be for us all
Who will stop believing in the devils lies
Of division.
Lord hear our prayers
Jesus lead us home
Holy Spirit strengthen us
Blessed Mother pray for us
Saints in Heaven intercede
Arch Angels and angels protect us
For we are weakening more and more each day
By the lies in the media
By the snares of the demons
And the division of the devils lies.

Mark David Grijalva Peres

What Truly Matters

I was thinking
Thinking this
Of what was it...
Yes, yes, yes...
I see it all around me
I see it in my thoughts
That seed of desperation
To be accepted
For who I am...
But the more and more I realize
What matters is not me
But whom I represent...
Not my political party views
Or my poetic expressions
Or my love for the arts
But my one true passion...
The love for God...
Everything else will perish
Including you and me
But God's love last forever,
Beyond the grave and more...
So stop thinking what you think
Will truly change the course of time
But follow in Yeshuas mighty footsteps,
It is part of God's master plan.

Mark David Grijalva Peres

Somebody is Watching You

No one knows
What you know
Unless you speak
The truth from the heart
Which many times
We don't...
Because it is not convenient...
Or because we fear what
Another might think or feel
But regardless of the
Who, what, where, when and why?
If we live denying the truth
We live a continous lie...
God knows it anyways...
All that truly matters
Is what He knows
About who that person
That stares back
Every morning in the mirror
Was... is... and can become.
So the dances we dance
The words we compose
And the drizzle dazzle
We create for the human eye
Means nothing to the one
Who knows all..  sees all
And feels those lonely nights
And hopeless days...
The ones so many of us endure
And no one knows about
Here on earth...
Yes, even the one
That took your hand
And said, "I do."

Hope is Yours

Hope floats
Never keeping it down
From the depth of the darkest seas
Hope will float
Above the ground
Carrying you from A to B
So you will C
That today is better than yesterday
And if you hold on to it,
It will carry you into
The tomorrow of tomorrows
Never letting you drown deep, deep
Into the depth of the darkest seas
Even though at times your thoughts
May lie to your heart
Causing sorrow
To make you feel
That hope is lost
Hope will float
Float on up
And never let you down
Hope has been there from your start
And will never go away
Even when you push, push, push
As soon as your done pushing it away
It floats right back up.

Free Will Cost His Only Sons Death

No one can stop you
from believing what
You will believe or not believe
And in this what you receive
Or choose not to receive...
For we were given this thing
Called: "free will!"
Would it have been easier
If we were robotic
And programed by the Creator?
Things are happening
All around us each day...
That call for us to choose Him
Instead of our own self will
For in a Him, we are everything...
But no one can tell you what to do...
Except your very own self
Regardless of the lies
You have made your very truth.
The power through God
Is a power like no other...
This power keeps our universe
In the same order it has been
Since before Genesis chapter one, verse one...
Since before you were birthed
And before your very own parents birth...
The choice to choose
Was not given
To indulge in what we see today
Day after day,
Which is causing starvation, addiction, diseases, abortion, euthanasia, hopelessness, doubt and death.
And then we blame God
For the acts of our own choice
That have collected up
to the way we are seeing our society sink in
In today's world...
It didn't start today,
but was building up since days past.
We are a result of choices made
But we can choose differently today
By confessing our sins unto God
Accepting His forgiveness
Forgiving others and sinning no more...
But what we choose?
Jesus or Barabbas (Matthew 27:17)?
The truth will set us free
The truth is God
Through Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour.
