FAITH & POWER
Last year marked the Year of the Rat, the first animal on the Chinese zodiac, while 2021 will signify the Year of the Ox, the second in the cycle. Many view the ox as being symbolic of hardworking attitudes and reliability because of its role in agriculture. (1)
Ancient Chinese character representing the number eight.
China Is The oldest continuous civilization in the world. The Chinese use characters to represent words. The word boat is defined with three components: vessel, eight, and people. Why? It reportedly hearkens back to the time of Noah. World Cultural Histories converge to prove that all human genealogies trace back to Noah and his three sons and their wives. Eight souls entered Noah’s Ark. Traditionally this has been the origin of Ancient Chinese character representing the number eight. (2)
God hath made man upright to serve Him infinitely.
Th number eight and the symbol of infinity are the same (except one is verticle and the other horizontal). Even though the Infinity Symbol represents an independent symbol mathematically, theoretically using a rose is a rose paradigm they are the same. “God hath made man upright.” (3)
Unveiling Tricks of Man’s Enemy
This also can be seen in the fact that mankind was created by God to stand upright and to rule forever upon His Creation. (3) Satan tried to destroy this by diluting the seed of man with his culture of demons (Gen. 6). Since Satan has no new tricks this same tactic is happening today. The enemy of mankind seeks to destroy man by diluting manhood and instituting a hybrid man to replace the upright man of God. Stay alert and be diligent to serve God upright and serve how God intended us to serve Him forever.

Throughout our lifetime, God is always looking for leaders to lead His people through times of change. A complete cipher of peace perpetually followed by understanding follows the person qualified to lead. To them, the truth is always expedient as their way are lighted before the Lord of Peace. Your momentum becomes proportionate to the revelation that God has chosen for you. Beholding Christ inspires the people of God to become more godly. Many people exclaim, timing is everything, as the times come and go, responding to the call of God in your season is everything to become a part of God’s Mosaic in Earth History.

Our relationship with others is a vital part of our life and how others view you attribute to adult behavior. Nevertheless, youthful exuberant is refreshing because of its raw, unadulterated honesty. Childish responses to adult situations at times are looked upon as spots of nothingness to the well-informed adult brain. Children seldom act in regards of how others will perceive them. They just do what is convenient for them and what please their immediate concerns. Adults are full of agendas and political referendums that stack upon each other contributing to a complex compilation of routes and themes that are confusing to the uninformed and impossible to discern for a child. This is why I believe Jesus said: “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Matt.18:3) The rules to the Kingdom of Heaven are simply encapsulated in the Golden Rule “Do unto others as you will have them do unto you” nothing more nothing less. In speaking truth, it matters little if you rub someone the wrong way or if you speak out of turn. The Kingdom of is thus, and God designed it to contain perpetual victory for its adherents
I Corinthians 13th also known as the Love Chapter is a nugget of truth that gives us a glimpse of perfected love. “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things” I Cor. 13:11. In the Kingdom of God, when responding in faith and humility, it is imperative to consider the implications of what others may perceive in what you say or do. A chief concern for those in the Light is not to quench the Spirit, as one decides how to render judgment towards others. When confronted with a seemingly simple decision that requires our words and deeds others take the record with a magnifying glass so to speak.
We are subject to a high level of deception by numbers, yet the Kingdom of God operates on the system of one for example: despise not small beginnings, the diminutive foxes spoil the vine and Jesus left the 99 for the one. In other words get the foundation right, the small things right and the rest follow. Our decisions as Children of God must be based on Biblical insights to provide solutions to proceed as citizens of the Kingdom of God. We know not the entire Sovereign will of God, but as children, we are unified by scripture. Therefore, Spirit-led walking by faith and trusting in God is our best alternative.
Heaven is thus, and God designed it to contain perpetual victory for its adherents.
Thinking about the humility of Jesus and the preaching of the gospel, Jesus taught the bitter along with the sweet mirroring realities giving eternal truths with natural meaning. Making the gospel a fairytale by teaching the good news alone is a disservice. It is also hardship, trials, tribulation, mistrust, division, and turmoil, amongst all the things we got through as saints. Jesus left us two important Keys to the Kingdom one being love and the other humility. God is shaping our humility through love and shape our love through humility. When our ways please God, as we labor we unwitting dodge many unseen dangers; notwithstanding, by remaining humble, we attract a host of angelic beings upholding us as we walk daily through many perils.
