The Minotaur Speaks

         The Minotaur Speaks

image

I will introduce the Minotaur:
“He creeps almost imperceptibly from within the clutch of the crypt.  It is only because of the moon’s glow, whose sallow light is upon the mid eve soil, that you are able to see his shadow crossing.  He glides silently, fully, forcefully, and ominously as his entreat enters into the pitch of the palpable darkness.

His burgeoning heart rages against all will. 

image

His tortured mind condemns all that is all.  His undeniable and exasperated wrath is set loose upon the slumbering earth.  Loosed upon the caring, and for the uncaring.

His excommunication was demanded through ill informed and callously indifferent judgments that come from those whose unconsidered miasma fluidly rolls from their tongue.  Those who claim to speak truth but whose ignorant conclusions are more deadly than the venom of 10 of the most noxious serpents one could find within the entirety of creation.  Those whose blind determinations will end the life caught writhing within unrelentingly insensitive and casual embraces.

His fundamental wails now permeate the air as they echo over the mist-laden hillsides, and down into the valleys, and it seeps into the dwelling place of man.  It strikes gnawing fear within the heart of any who hear his questioning.”

And now the Minotaur speaks:

image

“This is the room of the haunting hollow.  This room is beyond familiar fortress of now crumbling stone.  This room lies past the tomb of the living that knows not its own death.  In obscurity this room is found before the veil.

It does not seem that escape for her will be possible.  Mightily restrained and vexed she cannot pull away.  She is forced against the unimaginable; the unspeakable.  In her precise helplessness scorching tears, even now, stream down her tormented face.  She is absolutely destroyed because of this cruel embrace.

Do you really think you have courage?  Do you really suppose to understand?  Consider well and beware.  From this room darkness IT cries out!

I cast not this pearl to the swine and the pearl is this:  Even the comfort that comes from hope will not follow to save her here.  None but the erudite may enter this battle with her.  And that is for no other reason than to protect you.  If she falls before you have complete understanding of this room it will kill you.  You will not be allowed in unfettered, and that is because she is concerned for your own salvation.  The indignant sacrifice will not be suffered.  And she begs me to tell you that this is not of heroism but of necessity.  You must appreciate that there is grave danger that surrounds us here.  Do not impinge in this room of the Minotaur. I report the deadly.

Consider well and beware the consequences of thinking I have misspoken in any way.

I am prevented to speak any further of what she beholds here.”

A Friends Response:

image

“My dear friend I know you are not born of the flesh of my family, yet I count you as close to my heart as one would an adored sister and truest lifelong friend.

I implore you, please tell me what grips you so mightily that perhaps I might understand and help free you from those torturous chains.  Be not hesitant to show me the thorn that has pricked and made swollen your flesh that I might aid you to pull it out and destroy it utterly.

What manner of madness is this that causes such deformities of mind, spirit, and flesh?  Bring me to those dark places and I will walk with you through the shadows.

Be not afraid of me.  I will not faint and I will stay with you and fight your cause with you.  For remember, I have told you, my Love for you goes beyond flesh.  I will not desert you for the sake of any horror in your dark and disfiguring hours.  I will stand with you as a brother and friend would; always seeking the good benefit.  I will remain faithful on your behalf.  I will not see you cast into oblivion while I have breath.  I remain faithful.

Do not suffer yourself to be alone for I am here.  And others also, who have the heart to love you and shield you.  We will show forth courage and understanding for you until you find your own strength and stand whole and healthy with us; all of us being bound together by the purity of love’s purpose.

The Minotaur will now speak:

image

“Thoughtful and considerate friend of hers you know not what you ask.  As always you valiantly and necessarily endeavor to aid her.  Think not that it is irrational that you are prevented from this hollow.  She has understanding that you do not in this matter and until she is satisfied that you have been brought to the fruition of it she will not suffer her malignancy upon you.  You, too, would be in perilous danger.

Do not think that meager concerns exist here.  Only the stalwart are allowed.  This is of necessity.  Understand the meaning of this, “Too quickly is the moment from grayness to despair in this room”.  You may think you know of the despair in which she suffers but you do not.  For if you did, you would have already told her and thereby I would have granted you permission to engage on her behalf.

I have seen her trembling from the beginning.  In the darkness of abhorrent and unending confinement and subjugation suffered she; dreadfully.  I heard her cries.  You have not been provided this trembling.  Be careful what you ask of me; for her sake or not!

If you are to help her you must forbear in all your considerations over this enigma reluctantly presented to you.  It is forced.  Know this; her ambiguousness is not by choice and is fueled by the clarity of what she beholds.

I will tell you this and consider emphasis thoroughly; I have seen many fall before her.”

The Minotaur has been given permission to report against her will:

image

“Do you think her malignancy is cast or permitted impetuously?  Do you think you know her lamentations?  I am sure you do not.  Her importunacy is born of this hollow.  She speaks with authority and it would be errant to consider it feigned by any means.  Do not misjudge her resolutions and it would be very easy to do so.  Just as there are no meager concerns here there are also no paltry considerations. 

Do not consider her in vanities scorning.  Indeed, ignominy is bound before the hollow and will not be found here.

She is neither friend nor foe.  In either case she is formidable.  Indeed I myself have engaged her yet she remains,

image

and I am the Minotaur!

What is the measure of a man and who by taking thought can add one cubit to his stature?  Who can tell the bee not to sting and the snake not to strike?  Cease the bear from its charge and the pride from the hunt?  Divert the bull from its rampage and the shark from its frenzy?  You must be of a mind to consider, and be careful on whose account you place you’re determining.

No man of mere words can seek to understand the confounding.  You are implored to consider this carefully. Indeed Paul went to Rome and Plato to Dyonysius to prove what and to whom?  To what peril and what was the fruit thereof?  And verily Paul and Plato, in trepidation’s, received their reward; yet Rome and Syria fall to desolation.
Can Didyimus help you here?  She has already knocked upon his door by more than once or twice and finds him ill equipped in his weak pining’s.  His trifling is what?  Who falters and why?  Upon whose account is the payment offered?

Those with errant suppositioning with vehemence are prevented.  You must understand she has already passed the gate and it is I who grants permission here.  Those who wish to aid her must answer correctly to themselves.  Whoa to the betrayer in this. 

image

Nothing is masked in here and the wolf is known outright!  And for who’s sake is that?

What is the power of your disbelief here, and remember you answer to me!  How have you approved your doubt?!

Do not confuse her fragility.  You know not the fullness in this maturating.  Do not impudently think that you do.  You will not aid her within the embrace of any brutal apathy.  In no wise seek to subjugate.  On whose account will the resulting consequences be placed and for what purpose?  You are prevented?  And what is the fullness of that?

Do you maintain you will not faint if allowed to enter this conflagration?  And what is it?  I will measure the full integrity of all that you report.  You know yourself that the length, and breadth, and depth, and height are always tried.  Who it is through ignorance feigns is denied lest your weakness be upon her head.

The fear of whose world do you seek to remove?  By who’s authority and how has it been obtained?!  And how have you approved yourself?  And what is the benefit in my howling out for you to help me when upon your earnest and good desire when responding I cast out nothing but questions of you?  What is the good of that and upon who’s account will the resulting consequences be placed and why?  And your pain is upon her head.

If you seek permission in the hollow you must answer me Muhammad. Where is our mountain Muhammad?  Upon whose considerations is the unmovable moved?  Who can aid the unaidable?  You must understand the necessary depths one’s suffering.  And her weakness is upon your head.”

She will now speak:

image

“Those who hear the voice of this fool now weakly from the wilderness crying must with all kind consideration endeavor; can you move the unmovable here?

“The zakat in full measure has been paid at the gate.”

Addressed to ALL Leadership Within the Worldwide Body of Christ

Godly Instruction, Uncategorized

SECONDUCT POST HERE ADDRESSED TO WORLDWIDE LEADERSHIP WITHIN THE BODY OF CHRIST AND REGARDING THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST.

I have been asking people myself if they know what The Gospel of Christ is. Every single person that I have asked has said no. I have posted the question (this post being one time) a number of times across my platforms. Specifically to leadership. Did you know that volumes are spoken in silence? If silence to this imperative question is the response from leadership itself, and I do mean worldwide, then how can we possibly expect any man to take The Gospel seriously? I will be posting at least something coherent soon so that those who are watching and waiting for the answer have good reason to hope, rather than suffer further exhasperation and disappointment. Anyone who wishes to answer please do so for the benefit of others. The question posed is by mo means rhetorically.

Unity in The Gospel of Christ (edited)

What is THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST?

Please hear me. I know I am only I, but please take just the few minutes it will take to read this letter.

My name is Nancy Pais and I live in Massachusettes, USA. I have no credentials to offer you to encourage you to consider my words.  Although, I was raised Episcopalian, and then for a brief time visited Baptist, then Methodist, then The Way, then United Church of Christ, then Jehovah’s Witnesses. Now I only “label” myself Christian.  I listed this only so you would know, and also where it may offer any encouragement to continue reading.

I am writing today to plead with all of you, from the least to the more revered, to come together in unity. Unity in the bond of peace with one another, and unity in the message of the Gospel of Christ.

Many of you do not appreciate fully that, by and large, people just do not know what the Gospel of Christ is. If you think I am kidding set up one of those “interview on the street sessions” and spend a couple of days sampling different demographics. Ask the people, ” What is the Gospel of Christ?” Do this also within each and every one of your Congregations from living rooms, to tents, to halls, to Cathedrals, to Synagogues, to Mosques. You should be keenly interested to know the answers you will receive.

There are books about this, and books about that. There are video’s, and seminars abounding about how to do everything under the sun. There are historical volumes, and geaneologies, and strategies galore. Retreats, and dinners, and picnics, and sharings. These are all good things. I make no judgement against them.

My question is this; during your authorings, and video tapings, and retreats, and dinners, and picnics, and gatherings, and sharings do you always share the message of the Gospel of Christ with one another, and with those whom you are seeking to lead with books, and sermons, and videos? And always? By way of reminder, we are exhorted to continually do so. And leadership should already know to do this not only with the flock, but among yourselves also. Make it a part of every conversation and service. Share it! Continually exhorting, teaching, admonishing, correcting one another. Share it!

If you are to lead then you must lead us by example. We are wearied by the multitude of messages, and instructions, and catchy phrases, and banners. We need these things yes, but everything in it’s proper place. There is no message that comes before that which is given us, and that is Christ risen and the already established peace we have with our Father. (Ask yourselves “What is the one and only thing desired by yourself [be this fully understood in the mind or not] by each and every person that has or ever will exist? Do you know, and if you do what is it? What is each man’s imperative decree?

All the positive messages and sermons in the world will not do as much good as the positive and imperative message of Christ and and our found justification in this. People need hope and they are “drifting away” because you are cutting them loose to seek their own salvation in a world that has none other than that salvation which comes with the mind of Christ. And what is in the mind but the means by which we gain understanding in all mattwrs? And by the way just so you know, political correctness has gone far, far too far. As usual the spirit of the law is ignored, and we allow the letter to beat the backs of the faithful. This must stop. There is one law and one law only; that being the law of Love.

We are to speak with boldness in our collective unity in the bond of life through Christ. And what is life but the Love that manifested and dictates it?  Why do so many of us step back as if ashamed to speak the truth of Christ, and shamefully so?
No lie should go unchallenged anymore. Enough. Speak the truth. Ferret out the wolves and the leaven. Soundly instruct, and consistently, yourselves and the flock. That is what you are called to do. If I, who am only a mouse among you Princess, can speak with this boldness in Christ to you, then imagine what you could do in your own stations and callings. Unify yourselves together.

All the combined messages in the world will not do as much good as the one positive and imperative message of Christ and Him risen. God in Christ, and Christ in us.

And one last caution I would leave you with; there is too much division within our leadership. From the least to the more revered. There is outright heresy in some places. Backbiting and jockying. This does not go unnoticed. Certainly not by any thinking man or one of discerning. Ambiguity must not be found among us.

Therefore, I constrain each and every one of you to set aside all vanity and dissensions. Come together and unify yourselves around the message of Christ. None has the right to say of another there is no need of you, or I, myself, am to be more esteemed in any matter. Are we not all the bondservants of Christ?
Ferret out the lies and wolves that have seeped into even your own congregations. And do so graciously with one another in all humbleness, and with the understanding of mercy.
Continually exhort, uplift, and teach Christ so as to build up the body upon the only foundation which is already laid, and that is Christ Jesus.
Certainly continue the good works set before you to do each day as fits your station. It is necessary and valued. Feed the hungry, clothe the poor, heal the sick, look after the orphan and widow. But are you offering them only temporary comfort by not speaking boldly the truth of Christ that they may have the necessary hope to hold onto? Why? It violates PC rules? Fear? Hmph!! Whom do we seek to please? God or man? The thing of it is dears; by choosing to please God we ultimately choose to please both. Remember, it is God who brings forth the increase.
Who will answer us, with a unified voice in Christ, what is the Gospel of Christ? How do our Jewish brothers and sisters fit in all this since salvation is for them first and then the Gentile? Where is our shared unity and fellowship in Christ here?
I will stop for now my friends. God willing I will have opportunity to write again. May God’s graciously tender and divine guidance be with your every thought and step, and may you know your peace with Him through Christ Jesus our Sovereign, Living King and Lord.
The battle is in the mind and we are to put on the mind of Christ.
In the beginning was The Word, and The Word was with God, and The Word was God. And The Word became flesh and dwelt among man in all graciousness and truth. He came unto His own and His own knew Him not. And God’s people are destroyed by lack of knowledge; the knowledge of The Truth of Christ.
With kind and fond affection in Christ,
Nancy Pais

None of the questions presented are meant to be left unanswered.

What have you further to say on “What is the Gospel of Christ” ?Please share it in the comments section here for the benefit of others. And if you cannot state it to meet the needs of the flock, you need ask yourself why.
I am posting this letter, and future communications regarding this, on my online platforms. I have addressed some already on Twitter and Facebook, although not yet all as looking up all your accounts is time consuming.

The list provided below are those in Worldwide leadership whom I have been, and am, endeavoring first to reach. If you know of others yourself, and I am sure you do, feel free to share this with them yourselves.

We are all members of the same body and MUST come together in unity of understanding so that we may all speak the same message in Christ.

Why Are You Here?

Uncategorized

All Jehovah

wpid-wp-1434057157787.jpeg

Why are you here? When you came here you knew this Country was founded on belief in Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ. Now you are here and you say that our God is offensive to you. You say we must put our God away and not worship Him openly and freely because you have a different god and your god says that we must accept his religion or die.

Why are you here? We let you in voluntarily so that you may enjoy freedom and liberty. Here is freedom to get away from the tyranny that is rampant in your homeland, and liberty to worship the God you choose. But you come here and would take away that very same foundational freedom from me. Instead of availing yourself of freedom and liberty as it was intended you use it to establish fear and subjugation. Have you not yet…
