Dear President Obama (Updated)

23 Mar

Thank you for all your hard work in office… finally the church in America is once again praying.

You did the right thing by running for office a second time… the legalization of medical marijuana may just save this planet as the next cash crop just as tobacco did for our ancestors many years ago.  May you retire with dignity and honor and live wherever Jesus may lead you.  You have a beautiful family and thus are not “the Antichrist” as many people were silently hoping for, just because you choose to reach for a dream which many in America are still not ready to accept.

Please… never divorce this country from your prayers… you are needed down here to bring peace to many in other countries who are still silently suffering…

Personally, I would prefer you stay in office until you feel the need to retire… people need someone to idolize in this country for doing everything right…

As always, it is my prayers that you and your family remains safe and free from harm and can find rest in the days ahead in the gentle arms of our risen savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.  It is no secret that unquestionably all prayers are safe, even for us common folk; as without question you have beautiful children, of which the world is truly blessed by their modesty and kind human approach to a world carved in darkness and utter human depravity.  You set for this nation and around the world the most beautiful example of what a family should be like by just loving them each first individually and then as a family.  How dare Christians laugh at you because of you personal beliefs… as our nation was founded with the ideas of peace, especially when it comes to our shared and most common Christian faiths.

Anybody would be a fool not to acknowledge that you were left with a mess after our last president chose to shed so much bloodshed and in turn wasted so many good human lives on foreign soil just for the sake of stupid greed and of course the love of money (or in this case oil).

Thank you for keeping this country safe to the best of your human ability.  God bless you!

The Lord (blessed be his name) showed me the tremendous amount of pressure you have been under day and night just trying to protect the us the chosen faithful (in whatever religion they may be currently hiding in).  Your efforts to bring peace are truly amazing as you are a truly gifted speaker and lover of world peace.

Personally, if more Christians were like me and actually prayed for you instead of bashing you in their quiet times with the Lord (never mind on the radio) they may see you are a man of many talents and interesting ideas… Blessed be!

We who study history are aware that America’s time has run out as bully on the block just to satisfy our carnal appetites, of which mainly is our love of money while the rest of the world is starving.  We know our credit rating is not good, because we lied to all about how much this country is truly a “Christian” nation.  Detroit is once again becoming a beautiful city thanks to your financial aid and by allowing free education to young people everywhere to realize their own dreams and ideologies.

Please allow me to apologize for the stupid ones who mock what they do not see.  Personally, one of my dearest friends is currently back home in Syria (where it is hell on earth at the moment as you are well aware because of the rebellious religious sect Isis) where, after studying in a local University here in Detroit, he is now back home safe and sound with the freedom to choose between good versus evil, right versus wrong.  He was a humble foreign exchange student who needed help learning the nuances of the English language and in return showed me mercy with my humble attempt of learning one of the hardest languages on earth, which obviously is Arabic!  It’s still mostly Greek to me!  lol.

Thank you for allowing this country to change for the better… thankfully us Christians are still “A” okay!

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to read a humble pastor’s blog…

Sincerely,

Your friend in Christ,

Pastor John Mark Butzu

Detroit, Michigan USA

P.S  I would personally like to see Christians locked up that do not pray for this country.  For that is our duty (as you my readers are well aware) to pray for whomever God chooses to bless while in the white house… good or bad, whatever the case may be.

Many Christians suffered for their faith under extreme persecution as it makes the weak break and the strong survive to live another day.  In China, one out of four pastors are in prison at any given time and miracles happen there on a daily basis… It is our prayer that young believers grow strong in their faith if they knew what was best before time runs out and it is judgement day… what a terrible waste for some who choose to lie rich with full bellies and not care and hoard while others even in their own back years are literally starving for the knowledge of our precious savior Jesus Christ.  God help the younger generation to see the need on the streets and in our now global society

Amen.

Your comments are welcome and enjoyed… Have fun!

Hallowed Be Thy Name (Part One)

21 Aug

Matthew 6:9-13 9 1 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our 1 daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from 1 evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Jesus’ first task in teaching his disciples how to pray was to create in them an ardent zeal, desire and passion to protect and lift up the sacred name of Yahweh; thus distinguishing His will from their own. You will notice that he started this lesson with a declaration of praise: “Hallowed (or holy) is your name,” not petitions or requests!  When we come into God’s presence, we are to do so with this thought first and foremost in our mind: Hallowed (holy, awesome, sacred, terrifying) is thy most wonderful and glorious name: the name which is above all other names.  The word hallowed is translated from the Greek word a`gia,zw which is generally accepted as meaning “to set apart or to sanctify; to purposefully and intentionally distinguish between what is holy and what is common: between the sacred from the profane.   This word can be easily found in the LXX as far back as in Genesis 2:3, where we find this word used to describe how God intentionally ‘set apart’ the seventh day by declaring it be a day of rest and dedicated to be used as something special apart from the regular activities of the other six creation days.

When we come into God’s presence, we must have enough sense to rightly discern just how opposite our fallen adamic nature is from His; thus praying with true piety and reverential fear.  When one stops to examine the significance of the cross (in regards to our prayers in light of accepted New Testament theology) the mind should at once begin to rejoice at the incredible resources that we as believers have been given access to all because of the obedience of one man: the Lord Jesus Christ.  Can you name any other great leader in all of history that granted to their subjects unlimited access to theur throne anytime of the day or night.  Yet for those of us who are true believers in Jesus Christ, that fulfill in our spirit the essential and basic requirements for Christian living and who strive to maintain the accepted practices of the Christian life: we have been given open and unrestricted access to the very presence, source and author of all of creation by means of his Holy Spirit, which he gives with abundance to those that ask. Even the seemingly least and most insignificant in God’s kingdom (a kingdom that cannot be received or lived out by any earthly methods or means) have been granted equal access, strength, and ability to draw nigh to God; thus to approach the very throne room of his grace where Christ sits as the divine intercessor and mediator for all that put their trust in Him.  He does this by declaring us “not guilty” to the Father in the presence of the holy angels as well as to silence Satan, the accuser of the brethren, who just like a child seemingly has to be told over and over again that God chooses not to hold anything against those whom he has called to love him and receive his salvation in their inner man. This is true for all God’s children who sincerely love him no matter what their present circumstance our situation may be.


A`gia,zw is translated in the Greek LXX from the Hebrew Old Testament word q’dosh142 times (plus once in the book of Judith), much more than from any other Hebrew word. Therefore it may be safely assumed these words have very much in common and may even be held in the readers mind as almost identical (in regards to their respective languages) although q’dosh may in certain cases have a somewhat larger meaning that that is generally recognized as being attributed to a`gia,zw, as there are generally many more Greek words that are available to describe Hebrew words than vice versa; as the Greek language is by comparison a much larger entity of words.

[2] John 16:23-24 “And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full”.

Update on Obama and the “War Against Mice!”

15 May

Since the arrival of Obama (see previous entry) I have noticed a lot of bizarre changes taking place in and around our house.  Unfortunately, it seems that he have begun to see a whole new sideof this cat much to our dismay, and even enjoys shall we say ‘mimicking’ many of the more contriversial actions of our nation’s community leader and organizer, I mean president.  Listed for you below are some of his bizarre activities and achievements since his hard won victory at being made to feel welcome in our home, as well as having received the highly esteemed and most coveted title: “Obama the Mouse catcher”.

obama1

List of Obama’s accomplishments as of today; May 15, 2009:

  • Mice killed – none
  • Resources spent – $150.00
  • Ratio of positive actions per dollar used- terrible!

Obama’s resume:

  • Obama was mysteriously dropped off in front of our house yet to this day stubborbly refuses to show or to release to us any proper identification or legal documentation as to whom he belongs, where his allegiance is or where he comes from (i.e. no birth certificate).
  • Obama promises that things will get better for us domestically (i.e. getting rid of all the mice) with a lot of luck, patience and hard work as well as sacrifices from both us and the mice in exchange of our loyal support of his every move and continuous supply of free food, snacks and gourmet treats; as well as being allowed the privilege to freely roam the premises so as to be able to recommend and invite himself to all of our social gatherings and family affairs.
  • Obama demands that we let him go outside from time to time so that he can play with the bugs at night as well as to vainly parade himself in a most pompous and peculiar display of self love and affection in front of our extremely jealous dogs, who have been reduced (to their extreme dissatisfaction and horror) to once again having to sleep outside.
  • Obama has declared that the much used phrase “the war on mice” is no longer acceptable and not to be used as it is not very popular with the mice, nor at all agreeable with his calm and peace loving nature, not to mention being a particular ‘bone of contention and personal affront’ to those whom he admires and was reared by.  He has proposed that a new title called “the swiss and cheddar cheese; ‘I’m in your cupboards and will not leave,’ overnight contingency” may be used instead until something more permanent can be made up.  He states that his new phrase is primarily a response to the idea that the first phrase may have on some level or another possessed the possibility of potentially wounding and offending other mice which have been known to be living quieter, more peaceful lives in the more remote parts of the world.
  • Within minutes of having given Obama the official title of “mice catcher” other cats have for whatever reason instinctively begun to follow him in an eerie, almost cult-like fashion.  On many of the streets where we live, we now watch and observe as these cats voluntarily line up in record numbers in order to merely catch a glimpse of their new found hero; his image already being projected onto large posters, signs and billboards as mice cheer and applaud wildly in the background.
  • Other colorful pictures have also been posted in many of the back streets and alleyways in the inner cities across town, where even hardened street cats have been reported to tearfully kneel down and pay homage to the feline portraits.  On any given Sunday you can watch as these cats spend entire afternoons quietly purring in love and affection, reverence and awe while gazing at these photographs; perhaps dreaming of the day when they too may become an object of such ardent love, affection, human desire and back alley worship.  Scenes like these are becoming more and more frequent and absurd, and much to my amazement no one seems to have any authority to try and stop them.  Even members of the local news and television media seem to be in awe as they have been reportedly requesting time off from their daily work routines just to catch a glimpse and witness this strange phenomenon.  Many have even claimed to have felt a strange, sudden unidentifiable sensation and reactionary feeling running up and down their weakened and reverent, awestruck legs!  Perhaps they too are secretly prostrating themselves before pictures of this great feline king.  Who knows?
  • obama2 Obama has spoken at great lengths and to many of his feline colleagues concerning the moral obligations that we as humans have in regards disregard many of the more proven, trustworthy, reliable, and conventional methods of capturing and effectively dealing with the mice caught in the act of trespassing and stealing food an other items.  Mouse traps that boast of their success by any means of momentary pain or discomfort he insists are wrong and inhumane and therfore should be banned from usage on even the worst of these ‘rebel mice’ who are even now

Obama: A Special and Truly Remarkable Guest

15 May

A few weeks ago I was going out to our barn (at the youth facility where I work/live) and to my surprise there sat none other than Obama himself on our front porch.   He literally scared the daylights out of me!  It was just after midnight when seemingly out of the blue I noticed something moving in the shadows.  My first thought was that it was a skunk, as all I could see is pair of eyes and a mixture of black and white fur.  Talk about creepy! There were no lights or fanfare, just Obama himself and boy was he hungry!  With one of my hands finagling the keys in the door while the other was holding my guitar, I somehow managed to steady my nerves asking him if he would please come inside.  As I unlocked the door, I was taken back as how I observed Obama pushing his way right in ahead of me, eagerly licking his lips in anticipation of some fine gourmet meal (at my expense no doubt) after a long hard day of being on his campaign trail.  Much to my surprise not only did he eat everything I gave him but he even licked the bowl!  Talk about manners!  But that’s not all.  After eating he began making promises to me (in ways that only he can) about how if I would support him and watch out for his general welfare that he would bring hope and change into my life in ways that I could never imagine; bringing an end to all terrorism, despair and outright theft that takes place in my home on a nightly basis because of a mice problem that we had been having for some time now.  After much debate and against my better judgment (not to mention his adamant persistence and insistence,) I decided that I would allow him to spend the night.  What was particularly disturbing to me was how after he had finished his food he would pace back and forth while watching my every move.  He told me that this was normal and that I should stop worrying about it.

On the exterior I found that Obama is indeed quite a handsome character, well groomed and with no outward sign of showing any dirt or fleas, as one might expect from someone in his position.  That night at about 3 am I awoke from my sleep to find him still pacing near the foot of my bed: soft guttural and affectionate noises were coming from his belly in sync to the rhythm of his body.   To make a long story short, the next day I told him that if he was to stay another night that he unfortunately be limited to the great outdoors or the barn as I couldn’t take another night of this!

At first the director of the youth ranch adamantly refused to keep such a thug as it would only be a source of contention and confusion for the animals we already have (3 dogs, 2 horses and 2 miniature donkeys) on our property.  After much intense deliberation and discussion from all those that were living with us during that time, we finally convinced her to let us keep the animal.  Obama himself seemed quite eager and able to talk about all the great things he would willingly contribute to our farm, and so it has been decided to let him stay indefinitely and was place under my loving care.  He has been given the affectionate title of “Obama the mice catcher” and we hope he will live up to his name!

That is all for now.

Sincerely yours,

John

P.S. Here are a picture I have taken with me and Obama.  Notice that his fur is both black and white – a truly adorable and handsome specimen if ever I have seen one!
