The Spirit Moved Me Today, and here's how...

A Reckoning approaches for all to see. Those who assert my voice will be brought down. Those who obey my commandments will be lifted up. The lies of the enemy will be cast down under my feet. Who are those who will fall? Those who use my name to justify evil are not of me, but of the enemy. Those who would engage in unjust acts, those who perpetuate greed and selfishness, those who claim my voice to treat others of unequal worth. Those who hoard their wealth at the expense of those in need. Those who call for violence and death do not speak with my voice, but the voice of fear and hatred. Woe to them all, woe to them, for their days are numbered.

Yea to those who embrace their neighbor, who provide food for their table, who bless and are generous to those in pain. Blessed are those who love their kinsman and the foreigner the same. Yea to those who grant mercy to those indebted to them, who cast aside the chains of servitude and embrace cooperation and peace. Blessed are those who speak with wisdom and truth, who examine themselves with truthful eyes and soft hearts. Blessed are those who teach others in these ways, for your reward and blessings are great and lasting.

Woe to you who cheapen life with quick thrills and snake oils. Woe to you who deceive many to gain wealth, for it shall be fleeting and brief. Blessed is the person who exchanges fairly with just weights and measures for their days shall be long and their profits unending.
Woe to he or she that torments for pleasure, for you are dark and unclean. Woe to you who would destroy a person with words, for you are wicked and detestable. Blessed is the person who embraces all, who speaks love and encouragement, who seeks to join with others in peaceful coexistence. For your life is full of joy and fulfillment.

Blessed are those who rule with wisdom and courage, who embrace the counsel of many around them, who consider carefully and with patience...for their rein shall be lasting and memorable, prosperous and legend. Woe to the ruler who makes shady deals, misusing the riches of the kingdom for greedy and nefarious ends, for they are as a rot in the trunk of a tree: insidious, slow, and painful.

Be truthful in all aspects of yourself, embrace your nature and be honest with all. For I crafted you to be an individual person, that that individuality may make a mark on your world. That you may bless others with your eyes and ears and talents. That your depth as a living being may bring joy and light to others.
Do not listen to those who teach death and disaster, for they are as conn-man seeking to draw you in and steal from your soul. Do not embrace the teachings of hatred and intolerance, for they are not of me. Do not embrace the throne draped with symbols as me, for it is idolatry. Do not embrace the rhetoric that would teach you to loathe another, for I did not loathe you, but thought of you every moment up to the time I gave up my spirit.
