Truths appear in drips, streams, flows and pours. Drinking from the fountains of truth holds pleasures and benefits galore. Yep, truths poured in and truths poured out -- to constructively share. Truths sure can favorably do our lives well.

Initially, truths don’t always please our thirsty appetites. Often, though, when we allow them to rest in soak formation, to marinate and then to sink in thoroughly, our thirsts are satisfyingly quenched. Acceptance of truths adds to successful accomplishments of our action plans -- with relish.

Certainly, digesting truth proves good for our systems.

Thought provoking indeed.  Shared by Robert M Dickerson.  He shared the content below with some folks in a Facebook group.  Thank you, Robert.

John 12:49 For I have not spoken on My own--------------, but the Father--------- Himself who sent Me has given Me a command as to what I should say and what I should speak.<----------Meaning when Yahshua spoke he was speaking on behalf of the father. PERIOD!!!! His words that he spoke are Spirit (Meaning John 4:24 God is spirit,------- and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.")_

John 6:33 The Spirit (Meaning his words from the father RHEMA) alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and so when Jesus said he is the light, he was speaking on the father's behalf meaning (John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light,----) and in him is no darkness at all.

Jesus is not the light; the father is the light, in him is no darkness and that light manifested through his son.

So long before there was a bible, people, there was the word...Which is light and light moves at 186,282 miles per second (There is a revelation there)

People, I stay next door to a person who practices Islam.  Her mother was dying. she called on Allah..... which in Aramic means God. Her mother who was dying and had weeks to live is now cancer free. Why? James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.. So let's kill some of the ignorant answers I will hear...? Well, Satan healed her...Show me in scriptures anywhere satan healed anyone.

The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy and if some still want to answer a so called religious answer satan heals than show me two or three witnesses  that validate that or else that's a doctrine of man. Next there is a person who is a buddist who had testicular cancer, uuummm he is healed. Well, lets hear the other so called religious answer.

Well, God (which is a pagan name of Gawd the god of fortune, go look it up) is sovereign.  Yes, and if he is lets see what he says about his sovereignty.... Romans 9:18 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. Notice it did not say those who read the bible...

Next lets see another witness, . John 12:32 John 12:32 King James Version (KJV)

32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all<---------- men unto me....Period...Not those who follow the bible only, but the prerequisite to drawing all men unto him is if he be lifted up from the earth (are we not all earthen vessels...)

God is the God of all Numbers 27:16 Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh,<------------ appoint a man over the congregation. two witnesses, Hebrews12:9 On earth we have fathers who discipline us, and we respect them. Shouldn't we place ourselves under the authority of God, the father of all spirits,<------ So he went to not just be god over all spirits, but father over all spirits. Not just those who read the bible.

When Yahshua left he said: John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,<------- that he may abide with you for ever; Not the bible...There are thousands of translations of the bible, some have even been altered, some are missing chapters while some are missing words, but his real word will not change. So some of y'all can't see your worshiping the bible more than the author of the supposed men who were inspired by the spirit who wrote the bible. WHICH IS IDOLATRY....PERIOD!

Call it what you want...Speaking of which, some of you guys have never even been out of the country. I've been all over the world and the way jews/hebrews read the word is far different than in America. Some of y'all need to go talk to a rabbi, and just ask them about americanized bibles...How many of you know some satanist are publishing bibles...Huuuummmmmmmmmm. I really think some things need to be re thought what you are saying....


More from Robert:

Some of y'all are bound by fear (God does not give a spirit of fear) Why are y'all so afraid to look into other books besides the bible to learn? You read a math book in school, science book, history and english.

I'm in the military and we are taught to learn our enemy. I would advise to read the other literature, does not mean you have to believe it, but how dare some of these people want to preach jesus, but if someone else came up to talk about their religion quick to shun it...HYPOCRISY..... at its finest...

All other religions and even people who practice witchcraft know the bible, but the bible believers only know the bible..Lets see what the word says..My people...not the world, not sinners but my people are destroyed from a lack of knowledge (notice it did not just say knowledge of the bible or god) but it was a broad statement lack of knowledge (plural) and because you reject knowledge I reject you (present) and your seed.(future)

Jesus said the children of the world are more wise than the children of light I wonder why? Why do y'all keep calling LORD (ITS PAGAN) How can one have the spirit and keep calling their master a false name....Psalm 44:20 - If we had forgotten the name---------- of our Elohim, or stretched out our hands to a foreign god,-------Seems like now days

Excerpts from the Facebook page of Lamont Burno -- Thank you, Lamont: 

Things will happen without you parting words or uttering a "prayer." Your spirit is sooooooo connected to the Living Creator that it will intercede on time, every time

There's no need to ask if the Creator already gave it to you. You have the ability to access EVERYTHING within creation.
Miracles happen daily. Healing is a power we ALL have within. Casting out demons {negative energy} is also a power we all have.   . . . I KNOW we have the power within to conquer all things.
. . . I can't tell you of your personal experience, but I can tell you that calling on the name of "Jesus" is NOT what "saved" you. It was your internal desire to live. Fact of the matter is you could have called on Horus, Ricky, Mike, Bobby & Ralph too & end up with the same exact results.

The reason you called on "Jesus" name wasn't because "he" could bring you out of your depression, but because it was the name you were taught to call upon because of your religious beliefs.

My experience is much different than yours & I may add that I became the Pastor & preached about your "Jesus" for a very long time. I wasn't hurt in the church, never became angry or upset with the church nor was I ostracized from the church. I left because "God" removed me from the den of thieves where people were being enslaved. I had a decision to make remain & enslave the people or depart & enlighten. I chose the latter.
It's undeniably hard to experience the power of a figure that only exists within the pages. It's like saying I've experienced the power of mother goose from reading the book.

The power you've experienced didn't come from Jesus neither. You were experiencing a wake up call from God.

There's THREE important God's that you must adhere to.

The first Goddess was your mother. She had the ability/ power to abort or terminate your life. The 2nd God is Nature and the 3rd God is considered the voice within your consciousness that will guide you throughout life.

Christ was NOT a person, but is a form of consciousness.

People miss God when they constantly look on the exterior of who they are.

We're all spiritual beings. You're just PROVING in EVERY comment that you really HAVE NO CLUE. You're missing the FACT that you've DENIED your spirituality to CONFORM to Religion.

People don't understand that praying hurts because it's a soothing mechanism. If it gets answered it's considered a blessing from "God." If it doesn't, then it wasn't "God's" timing {excuses!!}!!

"God" is not in the prayer answering business, that's why "God" gave us power within our Will/ Thought!!"

"Life after death" was a phrase created through a religious belief system that was attached to their deity of choice. Life is life, whether it's inside of a shell or not. Why would I worry about creating a life after my physical death? I'm not!!

. . . just sit back & wait on your mythical "Jesus" and create your life after your physical death. Show me your creation, after your

To believe you're not a creator lets me know just how limited your thinking is. No one died & came back into their same body, that's all bullshit!!

You will NEVER deny/ defy the laws of the universe.

Eye don't understand why so many women want to be with Pastors? My ex also had a problem, so we parted ways and someone prophelied to her about marrying a preacher. She got with one and now is miserable. Breaking away from her was one of the best decisions. We had no real connection, she was more connected to religion.

Ref: Pastors wives: Most women think that it's a prestigious position, until they get there. The Pastor is connected to their congregants most of the time & committed to conforming to religious doctrine. One of my biggest issues as a Pastor was trying to live "right" in the eyes of people. Eye realized that Eye was not only lying to myself, but to them also.

There's so much that goes on behind the scenes, but more so an internal battle with Self. When Eye left organized religion, it was an AWESOME feeling of finally being FREE!!

WE are the "Gospel" & the "Good news" through our experiences are what we're supposed to share. People became slumped when they considered the bible or any other religious book to be the gospel.
Allow me to show you using biblical scripture. When "Jesus" met with the disciples in the Upper Room. "Jesus" sent the Apostles out to preach the gospel. Now, the bible didn't exist, nor had it been written as of yet. "Jesus" was telling them to preach about the good news via. their personal experiences.

That's EXACTLY what I'm saying. Look at it like this, If God is omniscient (all knowing) and all powerful. Why did a sacrifice have to be given? Especially when all God had to do was speak. Remember, everything must obey God, right?

Secondly, if Jesus died for the sins of the world, why are people still considered sinners?

The biblical God's have critically been proven to be in error. Leave those gods alone and begin listening to the Living God through your very own spirit. No Jesus needed.


More from Lamont: 

I remember visiting my cousin a few years ago in N. Carolina. She belonged to a medium-sized church. Well, she asked me to go to Bible Study with her one evening. I really didn't want to go, but because I didn't see her often I decided to go.

There was approximately fifty people in attendance which included men, women & children. The Pastor asked the visitors to stand, being as though I was a visitor & I'd probably never see those people again I stood up. There were about three visitors including me. The Pastor asked us to state our name, where we were from & who either invited us or who were we with? I said, "My name is Lamont & I was asked to come this evening by my cousin, Sis. Cooke {name change to protect the identity of my cousin}." My cousin was so excited that she handed the usher a note to give to the Pastor. I found out that the note was telling the Pastor that I was a preacher too.

The Pastor asked the usher to escort me to the pulpit. I was perfectly fine sitting where I was, because I was interested in listening to the lesson for the evening. The lesson was about the "Devil tempting Jesus." The Pastor went on & on as to how Jesus couldn't be tempted.

At the close of the lesson, the Pastor gave me room to talk. Out of respect for the Pastor I said, "I appreciate you allowing me a few minutes to speak, but I don't like speaking after the Home/ host Pastor. The Pastor replied, "I insist, I see that you've come quite a distance to be in our midst."

I stood up & said, "Okay Sir." Being as though I saw people with pads, tablets, notebooks & writing utensils. I asked the Pastor if I could give the congregation a quick exercise. He said, "By all means." I asked those who had paper & pencil to do me a favor. The first thing I asked them to do is, "Draw a picture of an Angel." Then I asked them to draw a picture of the devil. Since the Pastor never allowed any questions to be asked or nobody seemed to have any questions, I decided to give them the exercise based on part of what they were listening to.

When they finished the drawings I asked them to pass them to the far left, so the usher could collect them & hand them to me. I was given 25 drawings & all of them were basically the same EXCEPT one. The Angels had wings & a halo. The devil had a pitchfork, pointed tail & horns on it's head. I was very disturbed going through all of the drawings, until I came to the very last one.

I asked who was "Johnathan Hunt?" A lady stood up & said, "That's my 6 yr. old child. Why do you ask?" {smiling} I said, "That young man is very bright." As I looked through all of the pictures, they were the same EXCEPT "Johnathan's." I held up his paper & all it had on it was his name. The Pastor laughed & said, "He didn't bother to draw anything, he just wrote his name."

Just like the Pastor missed the point, I guess many of you have also missed it.

POINT: Children are often robbed of their freedom to think clearly & free because of the fear based illustrations. Nobody living has ever seen an Angel with wings, nor a devil with horns carrying a pitchfork. "Johnathan" only wrote his name on the paper because he knew that in him was positive & negative emotions, it's called BALANCE. People have carried fear based illusions in the back of their minds from a child & those illusions are being thrown into the minds of the newer generations. Stop destroying the minds of YOUR children; STOP killing the brain cells of YOUR children with fear based "DRUGS" of {RE - "LIE" - GION}!! - Lamont Burno

Things to Ponder

- There's a connection to what we eat and our mental capabilities.

- What we eat can enhance our mental acuteness.

- Can opposition be in concert with the movements of the universe?
