My Concerns now today  E-mail

I am concerned with what goes on around the World and what we see happening here on the Yakama Indian reservation. We have lived in the Yakama Indian Reservation most of our lives and find it becoming more segregated and dysfunctional in so many homes and businesses, as alcohol and drugs has caused such hate for what has happened in the past.  We are seeing bitterness destroy people’s ability to feel ashamed and clean up their homes and lives. I have heard so many times attending functions within the community “White Man’s Religion” as they tried to force us to be like them. They tried to destroyed our traditions and way of life and I feel this has caused a lot of Indians to become full of bitterness towards the white man and his religion. 

God created us all with the ability to make decision that would bring goodwill and peace to all, as we accept the way, truth and life that is contained in His Word the Bible; the text book on how then should we live? It is not my way, truth and life, for we did not create this world, God did. God gave all men and women the ability to either be good, or bad. This is proved by how our conscience works for us or find it dead to where we do not care, but are given over to a reprobate mind set.  It seems like being bad is more beneficial, for one does not have to work at it, for we are born to do wrong and have to be taught what is right. That is the reason we need a savior to teach us how to achieve our potential He created for us all. When we feel we can be a god in control of our lives, we step into the way, truth and life of Satan that is full of bitterness and bereavement. Satan was cast out of heaven for the simple reason he was as good as God. He is still doing all he can to fool mankind into thinking he is the light of the world, for sin is fun for a season. We see this by the way gambling with our lives is common, for the thought of being in control is what the Devil specializes in. It is not until we see ourselves throwing up and eating our own vomit we want to change our life style and want to accept the love of the Lord that gives us a good self-image, to where we are proud of who we are, thinking of others the way God created us for goodwill and peace.

So, when I drop the I and replace it with Jesus others and you, to where our spirits become proud allowing us to become a blessing in eight different ways. When we accept abiding in the vine; Jesus we then are able to understand the beatitudes of Matthew 5 which begin with verse 3.blessed are the Poor in Spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of God. This is understanding we are conscience of our need for Help from God, as He gives us salvation over the power of Satan and we realize we are not our own, but Gods. This starts by feeling sorry, for ourselves as we can’t, but God can, as we cry out to Him every moment of the day for performing what is right, not doing the sins that causes the wages of no money, no friends, low self-esteem, loss of everything of worth. But thank the Lord He gives, or provides for us what we need as our consciences cry out for help! We are always in need of Gods help of grace and mercy, for we are sinners begging for God to allow us to open the door of our hearts, so He can come into our store house filling us up with His blessing. It is the joy of the Lord that He gives to those who are abiding in Him. 

Then the second beatitude becomes possible.  4.Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted. Sin hurts and cause us to mourn, for we are missing out on God’s love and the love we need from one another.  Lord help us to see the need to be able to love ourselves the way God created us for goodwill and peace, that we can be a blessing to all. It is strange Jesus seemed to never laugh but that He wept for the needs of the people.

5. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. This is not being weak, but consecrated to God, for we are not our own, but abiding in Him, having a mark of being different doing goodwill and being peace to all regardless of who they are, for God created us all. We are not militant wanting to settle the account but waiting on God to settle the account of bad behavior and attitude.

 

6. Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled. When we hunger we are going to get full, as it is a sign we are going to grow becoming stronger and stronger in all areas of life. Let’s realize we are as healthy as what we eat. Also, we are as healthy as what we drink and we need Discipline to give us freedom to be aware of what we take into the body, soul and spirit so we stay blest healthy. 

7. Blessed are the merciful; for they shall obtain mercy. This is an attribute of Godliness that is ours, as we are willing to be forgiven, so then we can be forgiving. We are seeing the Republicans and Democrats show no mercy, but hate for one another, to where we have no peace for we are not united, but divided and mercy is a two-way street that will either destroy us, or unite us to be glorified and a blessing.

8. Blessed are the pure in heart; for they will see God. This is transparency at it best, as we work at achieving Gods perfection in all we do and say, we can achieve our potential as we keep abiding in the vine, Jesus or Lord. To be pure takes a lot of work dealing with the impurities. It is as we apply the Blood of the Lord and allow Him to cleanse us up, we become pure and holy as God created us in the beginning of time. The heart must keep pure of sinful lust; covetousness is called filthy lucre. Purity of heart is something you in control of, for out of the heart the mouth speaks. That’s the reason David prayed create with in me a clean heart O, God when he coveted. Are we seeing Gods, love mercy and grace regardless of the circumstance in our present state here on earth so we will see God in Heaven that awaits us?  It is the pure in heart that are seeing God now and will see him in Heaven. 

 9Blessed are the peace makers for they shall be called the sons of God. This is showing a Christ like behavior and attitude as Sons of God. We want to live together in harmony as brothers and sisters abiding in the Lords House protecting us from fighting with one another. Peace makers are needed to day in our Religion, Government and our Economics to show order and respect for one another. God created us for goodwill and peace and that takes surrendering to the Lords way, not Satan’s way. It is impossible for mankind to be peaceable and reconcile those who are at variance, and to promote Christian love among those under charge without a personal relationship with the peace maker Jesus, as He said to all gathered at the cross; Father forgive them they do not know what they are doing.

10. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake; for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Now here we are seeing the importance of suffering as persecution brings cleansing, as God is really real, making the storms of life bearable. This gives us the ability to have an identification with the Lord. He was allowed to die and put in a Grave, but rose within three days, to give all life as they call upon Him. Lord, help us to day to want that freedom and peace that comes as I am dedicated to you regardless of how we are treated by mankind. 

11 Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely. This is hard to accept until you become one with the Lord, seeing everyone that was martyred, as you see yourself. This is gives me, liberty, or gives me death, at the greatest degree. It is amazing how often we are seeing today people that are being martyred for the simple reason they are telling the truth and people do not like it, for Satan is controlling people spirits like never before.

Living on the Yakama Reservation is a challenge for we have a Nation with-in a nation. Yet we live in America, where it is in God we trust and have our being. Then as a Nation we have given the Native Americans the opportunity to govern themselves, which makes it very difficult, for we have two laws. When you are on the Reservation we are governed by Indian Jurisdiction. This is a challenge for all, as many times we do not see justice, so safety is a concern, for life and property. We have more missing person on the Reservations that is a concern to all. Yet, we do not seem to have the ability to address it. I personally have been to three meeting already this year that have tried to address this concern and no one can’t seem to find an answer. Then crime on the reservation multiplies for the simple reason, no one has to suffer the consequence for wrong, we forget everyone has to pay a price of injustices. Are we not seeing lawlessness in our Reservation increase to where it is causing many to suffer? Jurisdiction is prevented the State Patrol from helping with justice as the Yakima Sheriffs are doing all they can to help, but the Tribal officers are in control. So, for us to have lawfulness requires we all work together for goodwill and peace the way God created us all.

It is amazing that united we stand, but divided we fall is seen around the world in Government, Politics and Religion. This should make us, or force us to make sure we know the way, truth and life, God created us with, so all can be safe and sound in our environment. God created us all out of dirt and from that dirt. He created women from the rib of man closest to his heart, that we might love one another. As long as man has existed, man and women have had difficulty working at being united, so they could achieve their potential, for we have an enemy; Satan, that does not like obedience, but control and he is controlling many in the world in which we live. Lord help us to understand we can’t do what is right, for we think it is our right to freedom. Doing what we please, gives way to the easy way, that requires no work. God’s way is giving up, and let Gods truth and life reign, for God so loved this world, that He gave His only begotten son; that whosoever believeth upon Him shall not perish but have everlasting life, that is being saved. Saved from what? My way, my truth and life not doing it Satan’s way, when we become disconnected and shorted out of God’s blessing. 

Does this sound like I hate life and the life of others? No, I love you and want you to have life abundantly and full of the joy of the Lord, knowing that God, that is within me, nothing is impossible. So, let’s become united to the Lord, so we can bear the fruit the Lord wants us to produce in us to bring glory and honor to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
