"Notwithstanding"


“Notwithstanding”

cji
7/21/17

Vain and wicked are the people
who seek signs and wonders
denying that which is before them
fulfilling of the Scriptures and Prophets
notwithstanding many prayers offered
still to seek and pretend not to see
how strange is the hold of satan
embracing the many within lies
notwithstanding freedom to know
truth from guile wealth from pelf!


Helaman 16:23 And notwithstanding the signs and the wonders which were wrought among the people of the Lord, and the many miracles which they did, Satan did get great hold upon the hearts of the people upon all the face of the land.

"Flat Hat"


“Flat Hat”

cji
7/21/17

Restless of the height below
reckless and foolhardy
endangering pilot crew
homes and families below
much as those found below
unable to raise the gutter
drawn into the darkness
dragging others with them
rats in the sewer of life
unfeeling of life no more!

"Ludic"


“Ludic”

cji
7/21/17

Little children foolishly
their innocence of life
protected into wisdom
pretending adults to be
dressing up or down
as the day demands
their ludic illusions
play or reality images
little children wisdomly!

"Turpitude"



“Turpitude”

cji
7/21/17

Like the bandits/outlaws
even more as guerrilla's
raping and pillaging all
mobs in action of streets
without mind or its own
no longer even a human
another animal prowling
their turpitude stinking
in the depravity they live!

"Bosky"


“Bosky”

cji
7/21/17

Unlike Nebraska of 1800’s
barren and unpopulated
trees and forests vacant
much as the cities of today
without bosky or sane life
stealing away safety’s air
blushing at its nudity seen
empty families and traditions
unlike Nebraska of 1800’s!

"Assay"


 “Assay”

cji
7/21/17

How does one assay deceit
ever seeking to measure life
so many traitors to a way of life
selfishly destroying values/duty
can one place a worth on treason
whether to redefine wrong to right
forked tongues ever to hiss
making pelf their assay report
pathetically self-serving critters
of little value and less worth!

"Repudiate"


“Repudiate”

cji
7/20/17

How easy to be so foolish
repudiated the truth fully
settling the scene fantastic
without papers of divorce
unauthorized actions known
treason – TREASON – treason
congress media liberals
repudiating the Constitution
repudiating their freedoms
denying others any breathe
to repudiate all but selfishness!

"Onerous"


“Onerous”

cji
7/20/17

Thinking only of the yellow
filling the landscape fully
rushing winds cooling chill
hovering yet moving fast
ground to the heavens
thousands of feet high
missing nothing sweeping
engulfing all from air
moments of recognition
onerous the storm of life
able to withstand prepared
or capitulating in death!

"Meme"


“Meme”

cji
7/20/17

Culturally vacant wordless
passing generation’s on
more important than truth
as now on technology
going viral instantly world
whether true or false
repeated thousand times
millions depending mode
interesting meme items
based on repetition alone
culturally vacant wordless!

"Savant"


“Savant”

cji
7/20/17

Seeking to be the exception
too many living illusions
unable to face reality
too long entitled selfish
savant of falseness
stealing from the others
shaming family society
without any talents
without any expertise
falsely living exceptions
till without meaning
left only parasite shells!


Copyright © 2017 – cji

"Yawp"


“Yawp”

cji
7/20/17

Beyond comprehension
insanely raising in pitch
numbing even musicians
shaking the world all
earthquakes and storms
sand storms of the desert
filling every opening
chocking all the living
as the yawp of nonsense
destroying all feelings
beyond comprehension!

"Steadfast"


“Steadfast”

cji
7/20/17

Long ago and far away
hearing the sounds quiet
one’s word enough for all
steadfast in honor duty
sheep dogs always there
steadfast in all things
missed most one’s word
no longer of value/honor
long ago and far away!


Copyright © 2017 – cji

"Vindicate"


Vindicate”

cji
7/20/17

There is no vindication in sin
no excuses for wrong choices
adversarial vindication worthless
soft words and cooing sounds
‘a few stripes’ not the truth
repentance and obedience
changing one’s attitude
the way they think and act
motives for their actions within
to vindicate one’s future!

"Crucible"


“Crucible”

cji
7/20/17

Seemingly innocent enough
found in old relics or even new
wherever heat or extreme pressure
trials or tests combine to strengthen
each has their own crucible
most times used alone intense
thus in these the latter-days
breaking from traditions/peers
wanting to know the full truth
we’ve to exercise our crucibles!

"Stoning the Prophets"


“Stoning the Prophets”

cji
7/20/17

Over the endlessness of time
stoning the Prophets done
too many un-wanting truth
hard and difficult to take within
wanting soft voices of guile
even today ignoring Prophets
living and servants of God
wavering not at all in truth
wake up – oh please wake up
stop stoning the Prophets
stop stoning their messages
seek the truth for Salvation!

Helaman 13:25 And now when ye talk, ye say: If our days had been in the days of our fathers of old, we would not have slain the prophets; we would not have stoned them, and cast them out.
26 Behold ye are worse than they; for as the Lord liveth, if a prophet come among you and declareth unto you the word of the Lord, which testifieth of your sins and iniquities, ye are angry with him, and cast him out and seek all manner of ways to destroy him; yea, you will say that he is a false prophet, and that he is a sinner, and of the devil, because he testifieth that your deeds are evil.
27 But behold, if a man shall come among you and shall say: Do this, and there is no iniquity; do that and ye shall not suffer; yea, he will say: Walk after the pride of your own hearts; yea, walk after the pride of your eyes, and do whatsoever your heart desireth—and if a man shall come among you and say this, ye will receive him, and say that he is a prophet.
28 Yea, ye will lift him up, and ye will give unto him of your substance; ye will give unto him of your gold, and of your silver, and ye will clothe him with costly apparel; and because he speaketh flattering words unto you, and he saith that all is well, then ye will not find fault with him.
29 O ye wicked and ye perverse generation; ye hardened and ye stiffnecked people, how long will ye suppose that the Lord will suffer you? Yea, how long will ye suffer yourselves to be led by foolish and blind guides? Yea, how long will ye choose darkness rather than light?
38 But behold, your days of probation are past; ye have procrastinated the day of your salvation until it is everlastingly too late, and your destruction is made sure; yea, for ye have sought all the days of your lives for that which ye could not obtain; and ye have sought for happiness in doing iniquity, which thing is contrary to the nature of that righteousness which is in our great and Eternal Head.
39 O ye people of the land, that ye would hear my words! And I pray that the anger of the Lord be turned away from you, and that ye would repent and be saved.

"Whosoever"


“Whosoever”

cji
7/20/17

Which are you to be known
as a whosoever or by name
individually or collectively
so many choices so close
almost good enough but not
able to abide most commands
just not quite all complete
but what is this choice
life and death eternally
life with one’s family
death with the multitude
doing whatever to do
good or evil one’s choice!

Helaman 14:30 And now remember, remember, my brethren, that whosoever perisheth, perisheth unto himself; and whosoever doeth iniquity, doeth it unto himself; for behold, ye are free; ye are permitted to act for yourselves; for behold, God hath given unto you a knowledge and he hath made you free.
31 He hath given unto you that ye might know good from evil, and he hath given unto you that ye might choose life or death; and ye can do good and be restored unto that which is good, or have that which is good restored unto you; or ye can do evil, and have that which is evil restored unto you.

"Let's Read and Hear"

Please let me express to those who receive my daily/frequent emails – as I prepare each thought it is by a prompting – you are my choir – you are my friends and I try to share with you that which is most important for you to read and hear! Yes I wander in the subject matter as I transcribe – from words in our language to my stressed feeling of what is happening in our nation. Being deeply grieved with what is happening around me and the dissention of our media and those elected to represent and preserve our liberties and freedoms to that which is even more important – each’s eternal salvation. All on my lists are good people – compared to the crowds they could be considered among the cream. However, somehow – someway – I’m unable to convey the truths which I know to be true – that each of you might know what I know! Can I say I’ve done my homework – that I’ve read and pondered the Scriptures (all of them) – that I converse daily with our Heavenly Father and have for over six decades  - that I earnestly seek more light and truth always – which it to share with others – especially each of you! Let’s understand what I share I know – with a surety beyond any mortal comprehension. And this is most importantly – that the Church of Jesus Christ has been once more restored to the earth in this last dispensation of time. There is now a Prophet and Apostles on this earth called by the Savior to lead his Church – as stated throughout the Scriptures there is only one way – one baptism – one Church – there is no confusion – no changing in either the Father or the Son – and they are separate individuals with physical bodies of flesh and bone – testified over and over in the Scriptures (all of them). Please understand how much I love and am concerned for you my friends – many of whom I’ve never met – that this is true – I testify of it always and forever – in the name of Jesus Christ – amen – c/ork



(It would be my recommendation that each reread the Bible (Old and New Testament) not the revised ones but the KJV – and that each read the Book of Mormon – especially in Helaman which I’ve recently been referencing  - but more especially to read all of it! There’s other Scriptures but the Book of Mormon and the Bible testify of each other!)

“Let’s Read and Hear”

cji
7/19/17

Returning always to the Prophets
as in his life and teachings did Jesus
learning to ponder and understand
finding out the meaning to repent
knowing of the love of the Lord
knowing in all things good and bad
we’ve each the choice to read/hear
or to ignore of our own volition
choosing men/women over God
or returning always to the Prophets!

"Defeated Victory"


“Defeated Victory”

cji
7/18/17

Wherein the mistrust of results
cheating, illusion, lying, guile
convincing another of their defeat
while in reality stealing victory
wild guns and rifles firing chaotic
land mines and hand grenades
cascades of violence wild
victory within one’s grasp
defeat not a consideration
while parasites claim both
defeated victory of illusion!
