The Refrigerator

The Refrigerator

The Refrigerator

Imagine, if you will, your shop Forman tells you, and tells you repeatedly, to - “pull the refrigerator, in the shop, out, away from the wall, so that you may properly & thoroughly clean around, and especially behind and under, the fridge.” - now imagine attempting to move this 5’ high, greater than five square foot object, only to find it appears to be fastened down, to the floor some how.  You tell your Forman of the challenge being faced, but instead of truly listening to what you describe (just as many of you may do when reading this), and responding reasonably to the challenges faced, the Forman simply says -“I don’t want your excuses, I don’t care that you say ‘the fridge is hard to move’, I don’t pay you to ‘make excuses’, it’s designed  to be moved; it’s to be pulled out, away from the wall, so that you may properly & thoroughly clean around, and especially behind & under the damned thing.  Figure it out, move it, clean around N’ under it, and do so soon!”

After attempting to “move the fridge”, on your own, for a few moments, you decide to solicit the aid of some big strong men, four of them, veritable hulks.  And to everyone’s surprise… the refrigerator, barely wiggles.  Man, that sucker is secured tightly!  Discovering the increased challenge being faced, in compliance with the Forman’s demands, once again you reach out to the Forman to say - “Man, that fridge is LOCKED down.”  And once more, the Forman simply says - “I don’t care.  Move the damned thing, and clean around, under and behind it.  Now, just figure it out.”

Wanting not to be seen as a quitter, but instead to be recognized as being, at least somewhat, industrious, you formulate a plan.  You get one of your workmates with a winch on the front of his Jeep to secure a line, snuggly wrapped around the base of the fridge (about 4” up from the bottom).  You then have the four big guys “steady” the fridge, one at each corner, as you ‘man the winch’ to drag that sucker out!  At first the resistance is amazing, things are looking like the ‘anchored’ fridge is going to drag the Jeep into the shop.  But… just before you “give up” on yet one more attempt, finally the fridge budges. 

With horrific sounding creeks, and the familiar crackle of wood snapping like twigs, the fridge edges forward.  Excited, you watch as the winch drags the once anchored fridge out a full six feet onto the shop floor, leaving the space behind now… open.  But wait… upon further investigation, it is now discovered that this fridge was, indeed, anchored to the floor… with bolts.  There were six four-and-half-inch long bolts through the 2 ½” thick wooden floor, along each of the sides, and across the front.  Yet, oddly there’s more.  There was also a nearly four and a half square foot opening in the floor, leaving about three inches of flooring under the sides, and across the front.

The power supply for the fridge was an easy 12-foot-long cord, this even with the refrigerator pulled out six feet past where its front used to be, the power supply is fully slack.  There is a problem however, coming up from the four and a half square foot opening in the floor is a 3/8” cold-water supply line, that is now severed.  The pit appears to be filling with aqua!  The really weird part?  That fridge had no apparent water functionality, none, zip, nada.  So, ‘why would there be a severed water-line?’ you wonder to yourself.

Taking a trouble light, you ‘stick your head’ down into the four and a half square foot opening in the floor, and peer around.  You seen nothing… nothing in all directions.  You can see, and hear, the water running, but can barely make out the distinct sound of a splash as the water finally hits bottom.  That pit is huge, to steal a phrase from the Donald (now POTUS), “yuuuuuuge” and it’s deep.  Hearing the commotion, the Forman comes running, bellowing as he approaches… “What The $&^*%$ng hell have YOU done?!?

You casually, albeit perhaps a tad embarrassed, point to the fridge, and say -“The fridge is now ‘out from the wall’ so as to much better facilitate cleaning, under, around and behind it.  Just as you requested.”

The Forman, assessing the apparent damages, immediately quips - “I wanted you to clean under and behind the damned thing, NOT destroy my shop.” 

You reply - “I tried to tell you, and tried for days even, to tell you there were severe challenges.  Your reply each time was to simply say - “I don’t want excuses, I want the damned thing moved, and cleaned under & around.” - so, I complied.

To which the Forman retorted… “Well lad, you should have ‘tried harder’ to let me know the kind of damage that might happen, before you destroyed half the shop.  I think the Owner is going to press charges for criminal destruction of private property…

With jaw-dropped in amazement, you stand there… looking at the Forman wondering What The %@*k just happened…

The above scenario was a dream I had, just had in fact, as in last night, as best as I am able to remember, and repeat it.  Rarely, perhaps twice before in my life, have I been awakened from a dream, gone back to sleep, and successfully returned to the same dream.  Last night was one of those rare occasions.  And not just once, but twice, did I awake from, then return to said dream.  Normally, I do not place much stock in dreams, especially one where I am threatened with either violence or litigation, for “doing what was asked”.  This dream seemed, and still seems, different, ergo… today’s Blog.

After I awoke the first time, I just rolled over and faded back into (what turns out to be a rather shitty) sleep.  When I awoke the second time, the first thing that came to mind was I Samuel 3:1 - 10 (look it up, it’ll do your soul some good), so I asked - “Ok, Lord, what are you trying to tell me?” - I sat quietly for about 10 minutes, and frustrated (thinking to myself “I just don’t ‘get it’, why wake me, and then say NOTHIING) and returned to bed.  When the alarm clock rang, I arose, got dressed and took the dogs, who were impetuously impatient this morning, out for their daily - First Walk of the Day - and while propped up against a small fence, I once more reflected on that bizarre dream.  And once more I asked G-d, “what?”  “What is it you want me to see, or hear, or contemplate or…?”  A few moments in, still frustrated with the apparent silence from G-d, I heard a quiet voice say (and yes, I mean I heard this like I was talking with someone standing right with me, and I heard it in Elizabethan English) - “Not Me’ith, YOU’ith!”  I scratched my head, and asked (yep, 0530 hours, outside I asked) out loud - “what do you want me to see or know Lord?”

This time, without audio, I “heard” a very plain - “take a look at your own attitudes” - and BAM it was like a light had been turned on.  The dream was, is really, about my attitudes, and my frustration with G-d, with my fellow leaders in the church, even with my Pastors.  Now, I know that men, especially ugly looking, burly biker-types, “ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO talk about, or ever express, feelings, yet…”  Yet, I am frustrated with G-d, with my walk with G-d, with my relationships with leaders and others “in the church”, kind of *feeling* like, no matter how hard I try, whether the “trying” is about following and listening to G-d, or about soliciting help, no one seems to truly listen.  Or, if they do “listen”, they still don’t truly “hear” what’s on me heart, instead there’s a lot of dismissal, or exhortation to “just push through”.  With all human interaction we have - communication breakdowns.

I know that, after greater than 35 years of ‘walking with the Lord’, I know… that ‘walking with the Lord’, is NOT about “feelings”, I know many of the Scriptures - II Corinthians 5:7 - “…we walk by faith, not by sight…” - and even believe those Words to be rock solid truth.  Yet, I still feel frustrated… “What am I doing wrong?”  “What do I need to do to fix, or correct, or rectify this crap?”   And, I do not have any answers, not for me, certainly not for anyone bold enough to read this, no answers that is… save this one simple thought - “trust and believe” - See Genesis 15:6 - 10

That’s it, DaBauz poured his heart out.  Oh boo-hoo me?  Perhaps. Perhaps “trust and obey, by believing”!

Shalom

“No Jesus, NO peace” and yet, “Know Jesus, KNOW peace”

How does one get to “know” Jesus?  Simple, invite Him into your heart, as Jesus says: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” [Revelation 3:20 NIV]  How can be assured that this Jesus stuff means anything?  Well because the Bible tells us so, as the Apostle Paul wrote:

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” [Romans 10:9-10 NIV]

And for those of you who say to me, I can’t be bothered reading the Bible, “it’s confusing” or “it’s a waste of my time”, may I draw your attention to what the Bible says about wisdom: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” [Proverbs 9:10 NIV]

If nothing else, PLEASE read two chapters from the Bible – (don’t own one, sorry NO excuse, if you’re reading this, you can access this: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%203:16&version=NIV) John 3 and John 14!

John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

And John 14:6 says: “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Well that’s it, that’s Da Bauz’s Take on, “The Refrigerator” – this 14th day of May 2018 © 2018, All Rights Reserved. wr (Da Bauz, Christian Zionist “creationist” too!)

Creeping Sharia, what can you do


Creeping Sharia, what can you do

#‎RAD ‪#‎ATEND G-d (Christ) ‪#‎IIC714

Creeping Sharia, what can you do

What are you going to do about this?

Hear me please... when I ask, “What are you going to do about this?” I'm not asking as if to request you fix things for me, I'm merely asking:

What are you going to do about this?

“What is 'this'?” You may ask!

I'm glad you asked...

Sharia Law, that is what 'this' is.



Quote - “Is this (see graphic) really [an incident of] an “incitement to hatred against an ethnic group”?

According to Sweden's Näthatsgranskaren* police this man's statement (which I read as a call to being capable of Self Defense) it is - an “incitement to hatred against an ethnic group”. [4]  The post was made on FascistBook.

* “The Web Hate Investigator” ” - end quote
In the 20th year or the Twentieth century A.D., in September 1919 a man named Adolf Hitler joined the political party then known as the "Deutsche Arbeiterpartei", or DAP (which is the German Workers' Party).  In 1920 the name was changed to the "Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei", or NSDAP (the ‘National Socialist German Workers' Party, also more commonly known as... the Nazi Party). [1]  Sept 1919 folks...

In 1925 the “good” (gag, puke, choke) Mr. Hitler released “Mein Kampf” - July 18, 1925 [2]

Through 1930, Hitler’s rise to power and insanity continued into 1933, when Hitler was appointed “… Chancellor on 30 January 1933 after a series of parliamentary “elections” and associated backroom intrigues.” [1]

In 1936, “…Adolf Hitler’s re-militarization of Germany’s Rhineland occurred, [3] and...

And in 1939 we know, from history, what Hitler did next… “September 1, 1939… Germany invaded Poland” [3]

September 1919 to September 1939 folks, just twenty (20) years…

Canada has something called #M103 - a Sharia Law motion, designed to prosecute those who “criticize Islam”...

Sweden has "Näthatsgranskaren"... not a law designed to - prosecute “if” someone “criticizes Islam”, but a law which presently is, even as I write this, actively prosecuting those who “criticizes Islam”.  And that my friends, like it or not… that’s Sharia Law!

And many US states are currently deeply embroiled in focused efforts to sidestep the entrenched Second Amendment rights of law abiding Americans to own and bear, or even purchase, firearms...

So, again I ask...

What are you going to do about it?

The screenshot is from the Gatestone Institute's article - http://bit.ly/2F3TbG7 - “Sweden's War on Free Speech”. [4]  In that article you'll see numerous other examples of Swedes (mostly the elderly) being targeted for “Criticism of Islam” and (although most LibProgs will deny this, because officially it's known as “Näthatsgranskaren” and technically "has nothing to do with Islam's obligatory practices of compliance with Sharia Law") these people are being targeted as a designed, measured step, towards Sharia Law compliance.

So, now... What do you do?  What can you do?  What will you do?  Will you stand with your Jewish and Christian friends, neighbours, & even family, and with Israel & G-d (Christ)?  Or, will you turn, tuck-tail, run… and go into hiding?

Asking for a friend, Jesus...

“No Jesus, NO peace” and yet, “Know Jesus, KNOW peace”

How does one get to “know” Jesus?  Simple, invite Him into your heart, as Jesus says: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.

Anti-Semitism, what do you do


Anti-Semitism, what do you do

#‎RAD ‪#‎ATEND G-d (Christ) ‪#‎IIC714

Anti-Semitism, what do you do

What will you do…?

Good morning,

You're awakened by a noise, a disturbance, some shouting.  You hear an angry male voice saying:

“...who do I think I am “Chamberlain” wasn’t isn’t it 'your people'...?”

and then you hear a splash, evidently, he threw his coffee down your neighbour's path

The neighbour asks him - “Why did you use the name “Chamberlain” at me?"
And his reply was - "Okay “Churchill!”

After speaking with your neighbour, you learn that the day before, while riding in a Taxi she was asked, by the Taxi driver:

“Why you Jews kill Jesus?  Why you go to Europe?  Why Jews stealing from Europeans?” Etc.,

To ask such things at all, is incorrigible.  To ask such things in in front of a child, a young girl in fact, is not only open hate of Jews / Israel, but also blatant anti-Semitism, and a very worrying and worrisome trend.

So... now what do you do?  Do you go back inside your safe little house and pretend you - “Do not even know the Jewish lady”, for fear of reprisal from other anti-Semitic neighbours?  Do you boldly stand by your Jewish friend, and neighbour, knowing full well that this may very likely place a target on your, and on your family's, backs also?  Perhaps your employer might say to you, “It doesn't look good for the company, for you to be consorting with one of those 'dirty Jews'.”  Or, maybe one of your own children comes home from school saying, “Mommy /daddy, our teacher asked us to make a list of the addresses of any houses we think may have those 'dirty Jews' living in them.”  What ya gunna do?  I know, I know…you’re likely wondering - “Who does this DaBauz guy even think he is, who is going to be that ‘in-your-your-face’ with blatant anti-Semitism, and be so blunt?  No one.  That level of blatant anti-Semitism just isn’t seen, these days.”  And you’re right, of course, just like the English, American and Canadians were “right” in, 1920, “Adolf Hitler's rise to power began in Germany in September 1919…”[1]; 1925, “Hitler publishes Mein Kampf - July 18, 1925”[2]; 1930, Hitler’s rise to power and insanity continues; 1933, Hitler was appointed “…as Chancellor on 30 January 1933 after a series of parliamentary elections and associated backroom intrigues.”[1]; 1936, “…Adolf Hitler’s re-militarization of Germany’s Rhineland in 1936…”[3]… and in 1939, we know from history what Hitler did next… “September 1, 1939… Germany invaded Poland”[3]  But hey, that level of blatant anti-Semitism just isn’t seen, “these days.”

I read about a fellow, who, a couple thousand years ago, swore he would fiercely stand-by a dear friend, a friend of over three intense years.  But when push came to shove, at least at first, he chose the seemingly “easy way”.  When he was asked, “Hey, don't you know...?” he very quickly denied all knowledge.  Brazenly disavowing himself from any, and all, connection with the party in question. 

Later, very early in the morning, after being asked by three different people, “Hey, weren't you friends with...?”, just before dawn, the man heard a rooster crow.  Immediately he was reminded of the conversation where his trusted friend had told him, “…before the rooster crows, you will deny knowing me three times.”  The man’s blood ran cold, he broke down, and burst into tears, ashamed and in anguish, reflecting on what he’d just done.

The man who was being denied, was Jesus the Christ, of Nazareth / Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Rabbi Yeshua bar Yosef), the King of kings, and King of the Jews.  The man who did the denying was the Apostle Peter.  The good news is, as one can read more about in Mark 14:29 - 31, Mark 14:69 - 72 and John 21:15 - 19, that Jesus fully restored Peter.

The above story is real, but the year was not 1939, it's 2018.  The names used were not, Chamberlain or, Churchill, but instead they were:

“Osama bin laden”, and Trump. 

And the questions were not about “Europe” or Jews stealing from “Europeans”. 

They were - “Why you Jews kill Jesus?”, “Why you go to Tel Aviv?” and “Why Israel killing ‘palesteens’?" etc.  And the fact of the matter folks is - “The Jewish People did NOT kill Jesus.” - Your sins, my sins, the sin of Adam, and the sins of those still not yet even born, that’s what killed Jesus.  Or, at least why Jesus He had to die.

This lady's name is Amber, she lives in the U.K., and as Amber says:

“Anti-Semitic reporting is what I deal with, for others, everyday!  When it happens to you... panic mode sets in.  It’s easier to deal with other people’s reports.

Note, this is becoming a regular occurrence [in London].”  emphasis, in parentheses, mine

Now... What do you do?  What will you do?  Will you stand with your Jewish friends, neighbours, & even family, and with Israel?  Or, will you turn, tuck-tail, run and go into hiding?

Asking for a friend, Jesus...

“No Jesus, NO peace” and yet, “Know Jesus, KNOW peace”

How does one get to “know” Jesus?  Simple, invite Him into your heart, as Jesus says: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” [Revelation 3:20 NIV]  How can be assured that this Jesus stuff means anything?  Well because the Bible tells us so, as the Apostle Paul wrote:

Incarnation to Resurrection, Day Eighty-five


Incarnation to Resurrection

He’s Alive!

#‎RAD #‎ATEND G-d (Christ) #‎IIC714

Incarnation to Resurrection roughly three and one-half years, in 12 weeks, Sunday through Friday (six days) per week

Day Eighty-five of Eighty-four:

The saints, no longer grieved, or shocked & perplexed... the demons clamouring in veritable panic, crying:

“Oh no… He’s Alive!”

April Fool's demons...

I guess they just... didn’t get “The Memo”!

It's very early in the morning,


The gates and doors were barred and all the windows fastened down,
I spent the night in sleeplessness and rose at every sound,
Half in hopeless sorrow half in fear the day,
Would find the soldiers crashing through to drag us all away.
Then just before the sunrise I heard something at the wall,
The gate began to rattle and a voice began to call,
I hurried to the window and looked down to the street,
Expecting swords and torches and the sound of soldiers feet,

There was no one there but Mary so I went down to let her in,
John stood there beside me as she told us were she'd been,
She said they moved him in the night and none of us knows where,
The stones been rolled away and now his body isn't there.
We both ran toward the garden then John ran on ahead,
We found the stone and the empty tomb just the way that Mary said,
But the winding sheet they wrapped him in was just an empty shell,
And how or where they'd taken him was more than I could tell.

Something strange had happened there but what I did not know,
John believed a miracle but I just turned to go,
Circumstance and speculation couldn't lift me very high,
Cause I'd seen them crucify him and then I'd watched him die,
Back inside the house again all the guilt and anguish came,
Everything I'd promised him just added to my shame,
But at last it came to choices I denied I knew his name,
Even If he was alive it wouldn't be the same.

But suddenly the air was filled with a strange and sweet perfume,
Light that came from everywhere drove shadows from the room,
Jesus stood before me with his arms held open wide,
And I fell down on my knees and clung to him and cried,
He raised me to my feet and as I looked into his eyes,
Love was shining out from him like sunlight from the sky,
Guilt and my confusion disappeared in sweet release,
And every fear I'd ever had just melted into peace.

He's alive, He's alive, He's alive and I'm forgiven,
Heavens gates are open wide.
He's alive, He's alive, He's alive and I'm forgiven,
Heavens gates are open wide.
He's alive, He's alive, He's alive and I'm forgiven,
Heavens gates are open wide.
He's alive!” - “He's Alive” - Don Francisco, 1977

Jesus talked with Thomas, telling Thomas - “…‘Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.  Thomas answered him, ‘My Lord and my God!’ ” - John 20:24 -2 9

Jesus delivered the Great Commission saying - “…
to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.  Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved’…” - Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 16:14-20

Jesus Ascends - after forty days of ministering to His followers, post Resurrection, Jesus - “was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.” - Acts 1:9  Ten days later, the Holy Ghost showed up, at 9:00 o’clock in the morning! - Acts 2:15 - “…these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day [about 9am].  But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel…”. -
Acts 2:15, see also Joel 2:28 - 32

And that right there ^ ^ ^ that, my friends, is… GOOD NEWS!

We’ll leave reading the rest of the text for you individually.

“No Jesus, NO peace” and yet, “Know Jesus, KNOW peace”

How does one get to “know” Jesus?  Simple, invite Him into your heart, as Jesus says: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” [Revelation 3:20 NIV]  How can be assured that this Jesus stuff means anything?  Well because the Bible tells us so, as the Apostle Paul wrote:

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” [Romans 10:9-10 NIV]

And for those of you who say to me, I can’t be bothered reading the Bible, “it’s confusing” or “it’s a waste of my time”, may I draw your attention to what the Bible says about wisdom: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” [Proverbs 9:10 NIV]

If nothing else, PLEASE read two chapters from the Bible – (don’t own one, sorry NO excuse, if you’re reading this, you can access this: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%203:16&version=NIV) John 3 and John 14!

John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

And John 14:6 says: “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Well that’s it, that’s Da Bauz’s Take on, “Incarnation to Resurrection, Day Eighty-four of Eighty-four” – this 31st day of March 2018 © 2018, All Rights Reserved. wr (Da Bauz, Christian Zionist “creationist” too!)


Pray for the peace of Jerusalem...
