What It Came Down TO

Christ Prophocies fulfilled.jpg

I am moving forward with Yehsua Group, even hope to volunteer , be a part of Holy Language Academy.  Ministry has always been my central calling, since my teen years.  I had to ask myself a lot of questions and I had to go through a rough journey internally, but it was necessary.  What questions did I have to ask: 

  1. Is scripture true
  2. Is God truthful and faithful to this word?
  3. Was Yeshua truthful in saying He was the Temple that would be raised up in three days etc..?
  4. What of the Apostles, what of them, and the said testimonies, that over 500 saw him resurrected?
  5. Where is it said that any of the apostles sought to relinquish their Jewish identity in the early church of Yeshua?
  6. If the early church had no intention of shedding their Jewish identity, if that was never a commandment given by Yeshua, then why are we not adhering to the faith of Yeshua?
  7. Why are we not in context of Messiah, the fulfilled prophecies not honoring our Jewish heritage and faith? 
  8. How could I use my my skills as a Holistic Practitioner and NLP training to help others and incorporate the spirituality that is so important to me in my work?

I had to go through all of these questions and as I did and asked God to help me with these answers and guide me to the right people, community, mentors etc.., I was contacted on twitter by Yeshua Groups  God led me also to take a Udemy course online in NLP and the instructor has an online group for students to be part of.  Now a number of us are creating a community to work together to network, support and mentor each other, see how we can work to bring healing to people in a way that reaches those who need it, perhaps veterans, those on fixed incomes, we will see as we work it all out, but it will be a blessing to us and others I am sure.  We want to earn a living, but also give back to society, and feed the soul.  As I sought the Lord, clarified that We are Jewish if we are with Yeshua, accepting his as the Christ the Messiah Promised in the Pentateuch, and so I have been led to where I can truly be part of that and also led to where I can be in a community of healers who seek to make a difference.  I look forward to a beautiful journey of hope and healing, of deep faith, and much more.

Shalom and Amen

Yeshua Groups!

Yesterday I spoke to Izzy one of the founders and I am on track to lead a Yeshua Group, create a sense of community, which I love.  Church used to be that, community, discussion, reflection, community.  I want to gather in a semi public place, tell the stories of the bible, have everyone in the group contribute, research something about the background of the story, share, contribute, and then we can reflect, discuss. Community is what lifts us up, not to say we shouldn’t understand the moral lessons, the lessons of ethics and integrity, but open ended questions, discussion, connection, that matters.  I look forward to creating that.  Stay tuned for more!

As I read this I thought wow a lot fo it, that’s me, that’s where I am at, and what I have come to understand.  I tell myself daily to get over it, whatever it is, and get moving with life, with living, being a warrior for inspiration, all that.  I realize time is precious and it can’t wasted with people who are not 100% honest and sincere, who want to play games etc…. If people come with truth, honesty, sincerity, open heart, then I welcome them.  I realize I am very much loved, loved by my creator and no greater love can there be, if I truly am open I can feel Him and all of heaven with me.

Amen

 

 

What Was The Actual Deception?

duality-human-nature-11601507

There are not a lot of specifics in the Eden narrative in the Bible and we are left to wonder what was, is the core lie that Satan told, tells humanity, which led them to be disconnected from God, from the realm of heaven and thus lose their immortal soul, to have to have God put his Word to Flesh? 

A conversation recently gave me a pretty good idea.  A center for holistic stuff, someone there had called me to discuss my possibly training with them as a spiritual life coach.  Hitler came up and in the metaphysical, New Age objective truth, Dharma view of things, Hitler was not evil, he had a path, he got lost, he was not evil, not an evil man, etc….get the gist. As I thought about other conversations with those of the New Age persuasion, even a family member most recently, it finally hit me.  Satan’s lie isn’t that he doesn’t exist or even that God doesn’t, his big lie is subjective truth and morality.  That’s his big lie.  Now we have a society where there are no boundaries, Pedophoellia is being given a different name, label to try and make it seem less horrific and deplorable than it is.  If Hitler, Stalin, if their souls were not so corrupted, so not even sure there are words to describe it, then what is evil.  These men were and are, same as with Pol Pot, Mao Zedong.  These men were, always will be the definition of EVIL.  Gender Dysphoria is it seems the norm now and irresponsible parents are having their young kids have surgery rather than help them understand who they are in Christ, that they were made male or female according to the will of the creator and that is to be cherished, loved, honored, celebrated, whatever distorted thoughts they have about their sexuality, gender is not coming from God, from a place of distortion, rejection of self.  There is even a website that promotes alternative relationship situations, trios and whatever else goes for you to be happy.  Subjective truth is all about me me me in this moment, what my impulses say I want, all about feeling, and that means lots of distortion, means the Prince and Principalities etc.. Paul spoke of in the New Testament are loud and clear and they are the ones being listened to, just like in the Garden. 

In that Garden oF Eden, they had a choice to make honor and believe in God’s objective holy truth, or Satan’s subjective do as you please, screw any and all consequences, even to your own well being, that of others etc.., just do your thing and whoever doesn’t like it, screw you, God included.  Ding Ding, first prize if you can guess which one they chose, we have a winner, it wasn’t God’s truth, nope, it was the Satan Version 2.0, do as I please, to hell with anything else.  I’ve been there more than once, never ended well.  I got lost in the choice thing myself and more than once chose the rebel truth, Satan’s truth, and it didn’t work out well.  It seems now, more and more people are spitting in the face of God’s truth, of objective truth and instead moving more and more to Satan’s Subjective Truth 2.0 or higher.  What can we who get it do, well, speak up, and yeah you might get people yelling your face, but it’ll be something to put in our diary.  Not saying to stand on a corner all by yourself and start screaming the Gospel, no.  Maybe you can get packets of bookmarks with some bible passages and when you go to the beauty salon, when you are leaving, say, I want to say thank you for the great service and in addition to the tip you leave give them a bookmark, little things like that. 

Satan is very clever, he disguises subjective truth and reality, including in the moral arena as “rights” and “happiness, pursuit of” and all that jazz.  If truth is only what I feel, want etc.. in any given moment and not based on long term foundations, then there is not truth, so what does society have, nothing, what do people have, nothing, who are they, nothing, no one because they have no care identity, since there is no core.  The New Agers will say, the core is “spiritual being”, there is not sin, only good and bad decisions, so what Hitler did, it was his spiritual being out of alignment, uhh, no it was evil, pure satanic evil.   Subjective truth, even those who participated in the atrocities will twist and turn things to justify what they did.  Truth either is or isn’t, either we core truths, unchangeable, by which our nation, our faith institutions, we live by or we have nothing, we have no truth.  For those of us who have been found or found themselves again, truly, we understand this and we understand that God’s Word is Objective Truth, The Truth, Principles by which nations, society, and lives can thrive. Subjective truth, not truth, it’s whatever works according to what I feel in the moment, and according to what I see as truth, as reality, as moral truth etc…, me, I’m the God source, the one making the rules, me.  No, that’s not how it works, not according to God, not according to scripture.

Satan sold Adam and Eve a big lie, subjective truth and reality, truth is whatever you want, whatever you need it to be to be happy happy happy etc.., that’s truth.  Only, it’s not. 

Shalom and Amen

 

Still With You

I Am Still With You

As I watched the Capitol 4th Celebration on TV and they mentioned 9/11, I thought of the dreams I had had that week about people jumping out of buildings, buildings on fire, funerals, crazy dreams that made no sense at the time and that morning just before the alarm was set to ring, shortly before I had a dream with my Nanna, dad’s mom telling me, go back to sleep, stay in bed, it’s not your time to go.  I didn’t understand, but my gut said, listen to Nanna.  When the alarm rang and mom came to wake me up at 8:15 or so I said no, Nanna said to stay in bed, not time to go and I refused to go to the appointment. Well if II had I would have been in the Towers. 

Was it my Nanna? Was it God sending an angel in my dreams taking shape as Nanna so I would listen and not go that day? The theology really of it didn’t matter, still really doesn’t matter.  What did and does is that God was with me, felt I needed to be here, had something to do with my life, now granted fibromyalgia hit and hit hard, and I have had a winding journey to get to the understanding that I love inspiring and coaching whether directly or through the arts, but still.  It also as I remembered this and my dad, different people, realized they never leave us, their memory, even if there was family turmoil and they were not in our lives long, they never leave us.  I didn’t see Nanna after I was 10 years old, and my dad I was ten when I last saw him alive and then saw him again in a casket.  People may not be with us physically, but they don’t ever leave us, what they said, taught us, memories created, all of that crops up at times, depending. We are shaped by those in our lives, our interactions etc…I need to take a look at that for myself, my own life.

There is someone else who is always with us, the one who created us, He, the Word Made Flesh, and the Spirit of Counsel, and as I re-learn about our nation, it’s birth, different events that gave birth to us, to the USA, I know that to be true.  Never forget we are never alone, though people may forsake us, the Trinity and Heavenly hosts do not.  Amen

 

An Exchange Reinforces The Vision

Peaceful Retreat

https://www.concertwindow.com/187147-kappelloarts

Life will give you answers, the sun will show itself.  If you recall in past posts I have spoken about dreams with recurring themes and I also have had a sense of relationship, how I felt my companion and I would come together, how that would develop .  I wondered about that, what was coming up in the meditation. This past week, life has given me some indications 

To begin with someone started following me on instagram and we have started chatting, he even sent a photo of him and  his mom.  The way this is developing with each being a cheerleader for the other in their work, in general, building from a friendship perspective, sharing family photos, having open discussion, very organically, naturally about issues of the day.  I can feel an easy flow of energy back and forth, which is nice.  Should this continue to flow and move along as it is now, awesome.  Then there is the coaching thing, what will I specialize in? I went to see my gastro doc and as he was speaking about how he likes to listen to the patient, look at the whole picture, not just give a pill and send them on their way, when I told him I was studying coaching,  The conversation and my own interests made me really lean towards wellness coaching. Next thing, the dreams regarding my spiritual life.  As I am not thrilled with the hostility towards those of us who are Traditionalists, Conservatives Socially, Politically, who love the Latin Mass, things like that, the confusion this Pope has sown, and who perhaps for some some reason, and for reasons I have spoken of before possibly contributing, I have detached from the church.  This new connection I have made that flows so easily, is Roman Catholic, so seems I keep being brought home to my roots, God keep trying to bring me home to my roots.  I have a few things now to reflect on, to ponder and I am continuing to work on new material for the Jam on the 27th, so hope to see some of you there! 

Amen

Why Hasn’t My Meditation, Prayer Worked?

Photo 2015-11-14 at 23.00

I have been creating meditations for myself for the longest time, affirmations etc.., but so far, not really yielded the results I would have hoped, so what gives? 

I am studying Coaching and the first course is How to Coach Yourself, so one of the assignments is a meditation and as I looked at it and recorded it, it dawned on me.  I was setting an agenda, but not really asking questions to determine what the agenda should be, what my life’s purpose truly was as per the Lord’s anointing and what parallel to that was in my heart, spirit and soul, for long term fulfillment and joy.  The meditation given to us asks questions, asks us to reflect on these questions, find the answers deep within, the authentic and true answers, ask divine guidance as per our faith.  The other thing is that I always do the meditation in first person, so I am going to record it in second person and listen to it, see how that works out. The journey to authentic self for me has to tie into my core anchor, Christ, not religion per se, but Christ.  That’s important, but the life I live, where I live, so many aspects of getting a destination of the painting has been painted, fully painted, that is where this meditation comes in.  

Make Right Choice.jpg

It is in the silence that I must go, in that silence I will find the answers.  Silence, total silence is not always a comfort for us, it scares us, to be totally alone with ourselves because what will we find in our hearts, spirits and souls, in that depth will the heavens speak to us. 

Shalom and Amen

Beauty of Connecting

Goals

This morning as I meditated I experienced a beautiful vision of an ocean and waves, foam, small boats, swirling clouds, it was awesome.  I thought afterwards about what I wanted to see happen with my life, what would I want to have my life be if I had to summarize it.  In a sense, this captures it. 

Build an empire, not really looking to be the next Oprah or Bill Gates, but if I can leave a great legacy for future generations of true Conservatism, as the founding fathers meant it to be, of Republicanism as they meant it to be, of solid faith, spiritual grounding, a legacy of meaning I will be very happy. Earning my daily bread doing what I love the artistic, the coaching, I will be double, triple happy.  Finding myself, that’s been a long journey, but I am in my heart of heart a Conservative, and Christian, Metaphysical in my view of things to an extent, but firmly Conservative and Christian. Healing and Loving myself, part of that means really reconciling with my past, those closest to me who hurt me, tore my life apart, turned it upside down, even if they have passed on.  I don’t think I have fully done that, not at the deepest levels, but I will.  Getting fit, that is a process that will take time as I work through the healing, loving to help heal some of the physical, fibormyalgia might ease up a bit.  Hopefully I can get even more passionate about my artistic work, as the energy drain from the fibro is rough, so I am hoping to find ways to ease that with meditation and other not too strenuous techniques of stretching.  I will use my love of country, of God and Country, to get involved locally with restoring the Republic, working with the NYGOP, NY Patriots Group, hopefully make a difference.  I am apparently having an impact on youth in the Middle East and Asia, as on twitter I am having lots of artists, soccer teams, players, activists against sharia, child marriage and all that following me, so I seem to have struck a cord there. It’s an interesting development in my life  It’s life Forrest Gump says “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know hat you’re gonna get”  I hope to make new friendships as I get active in preserving the republic, moving forward with really reconciling with my past, even things I wish I had done differently and may life take to me a place where I leave behind in this life a great legacy for all. 

Amen

Do I Take the Literally or Metaphorically?

duality-human-nature-11601507.jpg

As we come to another Father’s Day and I am brought back to my dad, my childhood, a not so pleasant correlation of dad and goodbye, which left a permanent scar.  Last night, when I got back from having a nice evening with my cousin, who keeps that link alive for me, I was also when we passed by the church went in with the lights dimmed, the quiet of it reminded of my dreams, the ones I spoke about, and whether I should return to the Catholic faith, what were the dreams all about, something started to dawn on me.  There are important words, even in the study of scripture, of any faith tradition, in any reading of any significant undertaking.  They are literal, symbolic, metaphorical, and also discernment, in terms of which is it?  Now what? 

I thought about my spiritual songwriting, when I had discerned stuff about what I did need to do and when I felt closest to God.  I also thought about what the main feel, texture and theme of the dream was, or the main ones were? I also thought of when did I feel most in touch with God, Christ, Holy Spirit, when did even scripture discernment come, even to more deeply understand the juncture of Bible and Constitution?  The main theme/s, feel I would have to say, quiet internal contemplative, in the backdrop of sacred chant.  The sense of peaceful contemplative was so beautiful, wasn’t a religious feel per se, but I felt very close to the Heavens.   I thought of Psalm 23, the Book of Ben Sira, Jesus peaceful and also strong as they came to get him to bring him to his death. These were what resonated with me in these dreams.  Then I thought about the times I most felt scripture spoke to me, and the universe around me spoke to me as an artist, and either very spontaneous, I never plan my writing, or when I was sitting somewhere on the weekend or even during the week with my mini digital recorder listening to meditative contemplative music.  I realized that meditation is along with writing my form of prayers, of discerning, understanding the Bible, scripture, life.  I need to cultivate a more disciplined meditative, contemplative prayer and study path for myself, even if it’s Zen meditation, learning that form of meditation, praying, conversing with God, Christ for the Holy Spirit to help me write material and provide services that will truly impact lives to the max.  The other thing I realized I need to get back that fibromyalgia stole from free has stolen from me in life is community. I want a community that is really going to bring me a sense of peace, of really bringing out the utmost creativity, potential for me to give back to society and make sure that God can see I have not wasted my gifts, talents.   I do believe we each have a purpose and an anointing even when it comes to how to serve others in our humanity, and for me I do feel it is the artistic and in providing some slightly tough love motivational, life coaching.  I will keep you posted on this journey,

Amen and God Bless.

To all the great Dads out there God Bless!

Is it Really Love and Compassion?

Sin Costs You

https://katherineappello.bandcamp.com

https://www.concertwindow.com/187147-kappelloarts

Sin is missing the mark, that’s what it is.  There are boundaries, lines one should not cross etc… and when they are crossed, and destruction comes to a person, to society, when that crossing of lines, boundaries, morally, ethically etc.. brings pain, heartache, destruction etc… the mark has been missed, sin has occurred.  We can even do wrong for the “right” reasons.  In Ireland they passed a vote in favor of Gay Marriage, now Abortion, they did it out of “compassion” and “social justice”, in their mind, the mind of those who apparently were devout, knew the teachings, devout church going Catholics, were doing the right thing because it was showing compassion, social justice.  Oye!

As a parent one has to make tough decision, same goes if you have elderly parents.  They don’t always like it when you get tough for their own good, but you have to, for their own good.  If a child or a teen decide they want to engage in actions, behaviors that are destructive, or self destructive, even on the surface, even if we think they might be, would we just sit back and let them engage in those activities, actions?  If a teen decides, I lost my favorite parent, time to exit this world stage left, or an older parent, grandparent decides they are tired of the doctors, pills, that portable oxygen tank, time to chuck it all in and be in peace, they tell us they plan on exiting tonight, have it all planned.  Do we decide that the compassionate thing to do is let them do it, because well don’t want them to be sad or inconvenienced etc.., so okay, let me be compassionate and let you exit stage left? Don’t think so.  If I see you running into the street in the middle of a bunch of cars do I just let you do that because well you are so distraught about how your life is going right now, do yeah let me be compassionate and let you end the pain by running head long into the cars, splat. Seriously do I?

Sin is the same thing.  If one is truly a person of deep faith, os scriptural truth, then standing back and being “compassionate”, letting people move in patterns of spiritual self destruct, in that modality is not compassion.  Staying silent, supporting the life of sin is not compassion, it’s being complicit in the destruction of the soul of another.  How is that compassion?  How is that love?  Those who turn a blind eye, who vote to legalize sin etc.. are not being compassionate, and are not being true to scripture, are not at all showing courage to stand with Christ.  What does he say about that?  He says those who deny him he will deny, when they say we did this in your name, he will reject them as vipers.  He doesn’t want just a show on Sunday, he wants a show of courage every day, standing up for scriptural truth, moral truth, and even to recognize when someone has made a turn around, and has embraced him and is now a new creature in Christ.  Is it a lot to ask, may seem so, but with prayer and meditation, assistance of the heavenly hosts, Holy Spirit, not really. It’s not too hard, not really.

Amen
