What the Bible says about light and seed

The True Light "In him, (the Lord Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world,…the world didn’t recognize him." John 1:4,9.

The Good Seed and the Weeds “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Matthew 13:24,25.

Follow up to the previous video - Ron Paul´s interview: Warning! The Economy is Collapsing

Posted by Jean-Louis: 
A friend of mine posted a video on FB showing the former presidents millionaires who keep on benefiting from old laws protecting their retirement  assets, perks and financial gains through their books contracts running into the millions of dollars. He was complaining about the injustice, hypocrisy and inequality of these practices approved and sanctioned by the laws making a travesty of the Constitution. My reply  to him:
As believers in Christ and His true, pure, eternal, unchanging, never failing Word, we can declare with assurance: But God... The day of reckoning is coming soon when " 'They will fling their silver into the streets and their gold will become an abhorrent thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their appetite nor can they fill their stomachs, for their iniquity has become an occasion of stumbling. Ezekiel 7:19. 

 James declares in James 5:3: Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure!

This  doesn´t apply only to the high and mighty only but to those who trust in riches, chariots and horses, and their scheming instead of the Lord God our Father and the Lord Jesus who alone can save us from destruction and has given us the peace we need in these days of great turmoil, perplexity and confusion. 

How well do I know the presence of my Lord Jesus in the middle of the storms of life?
  • He brought them knowing full well how we would react in advance and in being confident that we would choose to be with Him wherever He leads...He told us that because 
  • we are His friends wherever He is we would be also....because
  • He is and has the only Word of life, our ark of Salvation, we are in His boat, He is in command, He told us the end from the beginning.....that
  •  He is the One will sustain us with His vision in our hearts slowly unfolding while we serve Him in waiting patiently for the great day of His coming.
  •  He is the mirror though which we see ourselves....we will one day see Him fully as He sees us and know Him as we are known and for ever be with Him,
  • He is the desire of all nations and the hope of glory, 
  • the lifter of our head,
  •  the lover of our souls,
  •  our hiding place, our shield and our great reward, 
  • our daily bread, our water of life... 
  • the inexhaustible fount of wisdom and understanding... 
  • a sure foundation for our time... 
  • Jesus who gives us even the theme of the Praise that transports us into His heart of love, through the veil that was torn so that 
  • we could access with bold confidence the throne of grace in which 
  • we stand by faith in the power of His might... 
  • our eyes open, 
  • our ears unstopped,
  • our hearts beating on a heavenly rhythm, 
  • our empty hands in prayers waiting to be 
  • filled with blessings, shared with others....
  • our lips filled with praise and songs to 
  • His majesty, His glory the beauty His holiness, bowing down while beholding
the radiance of the Light that surrounds His throne for ever and ever Amen. https://thelightseed.blogspot.com.br/.../peace-be-still.html

 Peace, Be Still

To read a study on Paul´s shipwreck on Malta, 
" A ship named Relations" click, Here

 For he spoke and stirred up a tempest
that lifted high the waves.   

They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths;
in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunkards; 

they were at their wits’ end.     
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,
and he brought them out of their distress.  

He stilled the storm to a whisper;
the waves of the sea were hushed. 
They were glad when it grew calm,
and he guided them to their desired haven.
Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind.  

Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people
and praise him in the council of the elders.
Psalm 107: 25-32.

Land, land, a chorus of sea-gulls heralded
Childlike, dolphins merrily pirouetted
Celebrating with the rhythm of whimsical waves
This propitious journey with delighted voyagers.

Suddenly, a venomous storm
Escaping from an Aeolian windbag,
Stinking and green with envy
Unfurled its fury on the peaceful seascape.

The cloudy canvass thickens,
The undulating liquid walls
Rise, with threats of wrath.
Are we in this deadly dance moving
Toward an unavoidable shipwreck?

The increasing tempest suspends
The harmony of the Mediterranean abyss
Feeding the human fear
At the thought that their last hour
Had chimed without any recourse. 

The heart in this reflex instant
When the compass swings wildly
Remembers that God exists
And humbly kneels
Asking for pardon and mercy.

The time for good deeds is gone
No more “Our Fathers”, “Hail Marys”
On beads to recite, nor “Om Shantis”
The re-winded video unfolds as lightning
On the screen  of the impotent memory.

The refuge of conscience is no use.
No more hypocrisy, no more subterfuge
Everything is in the scales
No more karma, no more bribes
Here come the angel executioner
Executing the sentence 
Or eternal life and its recompense.

As I was quietly contemplating my lot
A soft voice, above the furious wind
Asked me the following:
“Tell me, “can you with one word, calm the waves?
Perhaps, are you the captain of your own ship?
Can your eyes pierce the dark clouds
And predict your own future?”

Recognizing the divine presence and the voice
That saved my life many times before,
From war, from human violence,
From unchained elements,
I left my appeased heart
In the hands of my Savior
Who invites all to come and rest
In the secure love that emanates 
from the mercy seat  surrounded
by the wings of the worshiping cherubim.

At last, my struggle calmed by his Word
The ship arrived safe at port
Where, from the beginning
It was following its intended course.

Grace and Peace to you all. Remember the cross of Jesus who gives us the victory by the shed blood of the Lamb and the testimony of our lips confessing that He is the Lord and the Savior of our souls.
