Prayer of Wholehearted Devotion to God
Then the Lord said to me, “Throw it to the potter, that MAGNIFICENT price at which I was valued by them.” So I took the thirty shekels of silver and threw them to the potter in the house of the Lord.
Do I detect a note of sarcasm?
If the ox gores a male or female slave, the owner shall give his or her master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
Then when Judas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” But they said, “What is that to us? See to that yourself!” 5 And he threw the pieces of silver into the temple sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself. 6 The chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, “It is not lawful to put them into the temple treasury, since it is the price of blood.” 7 And they conferred together and with the money bought the Potter’s Field as a burial place for strangers. 8 For this reason that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. 9 Then that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of the one whose price had been set by the sons of Israel; 10 and they gave them for the Potter’s Field, as the Lord directed me.”
Figurative Language Examples and Definition
If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than, having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire, 44 [where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.] 45 If your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than, having your two feet, to be cast into hell, 46 [where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.] 47 If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell, 48 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.
Definition of Hyperbole
The wicked plots against the righteous
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow
To cast down the afflicted and the needy,
To slay those who are upright in conduct.
Their sword will enter their own heart,
And their bows will be broken.
It is very difficult to teach the concept of figurative language to an artificial intelligence algorithm or an unbalanced moronic person who will mindlessly treat every reference to “killing” or “death” literally and then flag them as threatening statements. In a world controlled by artificial intelligence algorithms and unbalanced moronic persons, we would have no rights at all.
The fact that a child is a person is an objective fact, which does not change simply because one bigoted society feels the child is unwanted or might become a burden. If a child is a person, it can only be killed for legitimate reasons. What is a legitimate reason for killing a person?
A parasite that immediately kills its host will go extinct. A parasite that does subtle damage can spread from host to host and do far more damage. Eventually, if a parasite does enough damage, it can be detected and removed. Why is the cost of education increasing? Why is the national debt increasing? Why does a host with a parasite need more food to survive? We have diagnosed the fact that our society is diseased and suffers from the parasite of Artificial Education, so now we need to remove the parasite. Many times you cannot forcibly remove a parasite, but rather you need to stimulate it to leave. Artificial education will defend itself because it is the livelihood for many people who have no practical skills. Artificial education cannot be forcibly removed because it protects itself using personal insults, public humiliation, and implicit threats of exclusion.
Every single paragraph/subsection of my book "The War Against Truth" follows the same format of (1) Analogy (Simile & Metaphor), (2) Description, (3) Demonstrations/Examples, (4) Assignments/Socratic Method Questions.
"Analogies are like signposts that point in the direction of knowledge. It is difficult for us to know whether we are traveling in the proper direction unless there are signs that we recognize. If we do not see signs that we recognize, we might turn back even if we are traveling in the proper direction. We are anxious until we see the signs we recognize, but we have the confidence to continue once we see them.
Analogies are expressions that relate the unfamiliar with the familiar. Analogies allow us to learn insights about the unknown from what is already known. Some analogies are more perfect than others, but all analogies have their limitations. A perfect analogy would no longer be an analogy, but rather a description of something that is already known.
An analogy is like a picture of an animal from just one specific angle. A single picture does not capture everything about the animal. However, we can begin to imagine the form of the animal and how it moves with enough pictures from different angles. All physics is to some degree an analogy that takes the complex structures and interactions of nature and relates them to simplified models and concepts.
Can you think of some ways of communicating knowledge through analogies? Can you think of some of the benefits and limitations of communicating knowledge through analogies?"
Guardians of the Galaxy - Nothing Goes Over My Head Scene
The Evil One has chosen to abuse free will and has led a host of demonic angels in rebellion against God Almighty. The Adversary has dared to defy God Almighty. The Accuser has dared to corrupt and accuse God’s children. The Deceiver has dared to deceive this world. The Father of Sin has dared to declare himself “king” of this world. The Adversary, the Accuser, the Deceiver, the Evil One has chosen to corrupt this world with sin. God Almighty knew this. God Almighty planned for this. God Almighty has allowed this for his purpose. God Almighty designed and created this world. God Almighty allowed sin and corruption to enter this world. The Adversary, the Accuser, the Deceiver, the Evil One can do nothing beyond what God Almighty has allowed. God Almighty will destroy this world with a purging fire. The destruction of this world will be the new birth of the new kingdom that will be made perfect. This will happen all according to his plan. The Adversary, the Accuser, the Deceiver, the Evil One, knows his time is short and his destruction is imminent. Lucifer and all the demonic angels will perish in the Lake of Fire and will suffer eternal death apart from God Almighty.
The Adversary and fallen demonic angels have worked to corrupt this world and pervert the design of this world. Lucifer and his demonic angles have corrupted all of mankind with sin. Lucifer and his demonic angels have deceived this world. All of mankind have been deceived into choosing to sin. All of mankind have sinned and become corrupted and imperfect. It is impossible for sinful humanity to abide with God Almighty, it is impossible for sinful humanity to enter the New Kingdom, it is impossible for sinful humanity earn Eternal Life. All of sinful humanity will perish in the Lake of Fire and will suffer Eternal Death apart from God Almighty. All of humanity has become sinful and corrupted. There is not one among us who has not sinned. It is impossible for sinful humanity to save itself and earn Eternal Life. What is impossible for mankind to accomplish, God Almighty has made allowance to accomplish according to his plan.
A friend or relative or altruistic person will give a loving warning when a person they love is doing something harmful that could result in death. That loving warning about how reality actually is can either be gratefully acknowledged or stubbornly rejected. When someone is stubborn, they will think the most loving warnings to be an insult to their pride. The question is one: Is the warning given for purpose of taking advantage of you or is the warning given for your own benefit? If the purpose of the warning is to take advantage of you, then you would be right to be offended by the deceptive warning. However, if the purpose of the warning is for your own benefit, then the only reason to be offended by the genuine warning is stubborn pride. You can choose your sinful habits, but you cannot choose the consequences for them; reality determines the consequences.
The choice is yours. The question is one; if you were to die today, are you right with God? Do you trust in him who is worthy of your trust? Make an informed decision for your eternal dwelling place; don’t just choose out of ignorance, misinformation, or habit. If you still choose to cling to your habit of sin, then that you will face the white throne judgment when you die; he is coming soon.
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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
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.

You alone are good, you alone are wise. You loved me before the foundation of the world. You have plans for me to prosper and not to be destroyed.
Lord, Jesus Christ, fill me with a google portion of your Holy Spirit, Ruach Hakodesh; Fill me utterly, completely, with your Holy Spirit, let it be overflowing within me. Lord, it is my free will, my free choice, that you use it to make it impossible for me to sin today, every day, and for the rest of my life. Do not inhibit the Holy Spirit in any way; allow me to fully utilize the power of your Holy Spirit, to be pleasing to you, for your glory, and for the advancement of your kingdom.
Lord Jesus Christ, it is my free will, my free choice, that you allow the Holy Spirit, Ruach Hakodesh, to take control of my heart, mind, soul, spirit, brain and body today, every day, and for the rest of my life. Purify my heart and make it holy and righteous and you are holy and righteous. Cleans my mind of unrighteous thoughts and let me dwell on what is good and lovely.

Please help me to love my neighbor as myself. Please help me to pray in a way that is pleasing to you and effective.
We freely choose to love, worship, and serve you, Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, Creator of all things, because of your great love for us. While we were still sinners you loved us. You could have wiped off the face of the earth and created other beings more deserving to replace us, but out of your great love for us you have patience with us and desire us all choose freely to come to repentance. Out of your great love for us you sent us Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Emannuel, the Word of God clothed in human flesh, Emmanuel, who is called the Son of God, the Prince of Peace, the Living Water, the Bread of Life, the Good Shepherd, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
Thank you Lord for allowing the virgin Jewish woman Mary to conceive by the power of the Holy Spirit, Ruach Hakodesh, and give birth to Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Emannuel, who lived a perfect sinless human life, suffered humiliation and torture, died on a cross to pay the full penalty for my sins, rose from the dead on the third day, and is seated at the right hand of The Most High, Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, who has sent us the Holy Spirit, Ruach Hakodesh, to dwell within us. Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Emannuel, our only mediator between humanity and Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, we plead for you to mediate on our behalf.
Lord Jesus Christ please account me worthy to inherit eternal life, not based on my works which are but filthy rags, but upon your finished work on the cross, for it is written “it is finished”.
Lord Jesus Christ, I forgive everyone who has sinned or trespassed against me. Do not hold their sins against them on the Day of Judgment. Do not harden their hearts. But rather soften their hearts, melt their hearts, lead them to repentance, to the Lord Jesus Christ, so that they may inherit eternal life. For it is written that you want none to perish but all to come to repentance.
Lord Jesus Christ I repent of all my sins; please help me to sin no more. For it is written “go, and from now on sin no more”. Please clothe me in your righteous blood and let sin and death Passover me; let my sins be stricken from the record for it is written “blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not record”. Let my sins be as far from me as the east is from the west.
Lord Jesus Christ please account me worthy to escape the tribulation that will come upon the whole world to test it, as you promised the Church of Philadelphia to keep it from the hour of trial and instructed us to pray always that we are accounted worth to escape what is to come upon the whole world and to be able to stand before the Son of Man. Please clothe me in white fine wedding garments. Please account me worthy to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb. Please account me worthy to enter your Sabbath rest. Please account me worthy to enter your Millennial Kingdom. Please account me worthy to stand before the Son of Man, the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings, Emanuel, and hear “well done my good and faithful servant”. Please account me worthy to lay my crowns before your feet. Lord Jesus Christ, do not allow me to lose any eternal crown, eternal reward, or eternal blessing; do not allow the enemy to steal them from me.
But rather fill me with a googolplex portion of your Holy Spirit, Ruach Hakodesh, give me wisdom and knowledge, faith, hope, love, rest, peace, comfort, council, guidance, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Let me be more than 100 times fruitful. Do not allow the Holy Spirit to be quenched in any way, but allow me to fully utilize the Holy Spirit for your glory, and for the advancement of your kingdom.
If there are any special gifts and blessings that you have in reserve for us should we ask, we are asking now Lord please bestow those gifts and blessings upon us, and if there is anything we must do to receive those blessings, we give our informed consent for you to compel us with your Holy Spirit, Ruach Hakodesh, to fulfill those requirements. Lord thank you for the many gifts and blessings you have bestowed upon us throughout our lives. Everything we have is from what you have given us; everything good comes from you Lord. Lord we find our delight in you who will give us the desires of our hearts.
The Lord Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Ruach Hakodesh, rebuke you Satan. Get behind me Satan. Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. It is written “resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Lord Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Ruach Hakodesh put a hedge of protection around me, my family, my neighbors, those whom I love, my country and its leaders today, every day, and for the rest of my life. Lord Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Ruach Hakodesh let any workers of the enemy Satan who try to influence anyone within this hedge of protection be immediately imprisoned where they cannot harm or influence anyone again until the Lord Jesus Christ returns.
Lord Jesus Christ, it is written that your Father who has given us to you is greater than all and no one can take us out of the Father’s hands. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. I will fear no evil; for you are with me your rod and your staff they comfort me. Lord you are my refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust. Shelter me in the shadow of your wings. Lord you promised that we would not be tempted beyond what we are able to bear, but with every temptation you will provide a way of escape so that we may be able to bear it. Lord, you know what I need before I ask. But as you requested, I have made my requests known to you through prayer and supplication with thanksgiving; please give me the peace of God that surpasses all understanding and guard my mind and heart in Christ Jesus.
What father would give his son a stone when he ask for bread, or give his son a snake when he asks for a fish, or would give his son scorpion when he ask for an egg? If earthly fathers who are evil know how to give good gifts to their children, how much more will our heavenly Father give us the gift of the Holy Spirit? I have asked Lord; let me receive. I have sought Lord; let me find. I have knocked Lord; let the door be opened.
We freely choose to love, worship, and serve you Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, Creator of all things. When you created Lucifer, you put his authority on a leash, like a dog he can only go as far as you will let him. When Lucifer freely choose to rebel out of pride, he freely choose to become Devil, Satan, the deceiver, the accuser, the father of sin bent on destroying humanity by turning humanity to sin and away from you, Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Ruach Hakodesh. You used him to test whether humanity would freely choose to rebel in sin or freely choose to love you, their Creator, and obey your suffering servant Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Emanuel the prophet of the new covenant, our redeemer, our mediator, whom you granted authority to be our Lord.
Lord Jesus Christ, you promised that if we had faith the size of a mustard seed that we can move mountains; increase our faith and let the mountains be moved. Lord Jesus Christ, you promised that in the Father’s house there are many dwelling places and that you have gone there to prepare a place for us. It is our free will to freely choose to accept the purpose you created us for and to fully embrace the purpose you have for each of our lives. Give us a forgiving heart and use us as instruments of your truth, mercy, grace, and love to heal this sin afflicted world. Remove all sin and rebellion from us and clothe us in immortality.
Out of your great wisdom, Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, you will cause all of the schemes of the pathetic defeated enemy, Lucifer, Devil, Satan and his followers to backfire on them; you will rebuke them and throw them into the lake of fire. Out of your great wisdom and goodness Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai, El Shaddi, you will make all things new in your perfect eternal kingdom where there is no longer the curse of sin, you will wipe away ever tear from the eyes of those who freely choose to love you, and we will freely choose to love, worship, and serve you for all eternity.
I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Emmanuel, who taught us a model for prayer:
(Acknowledgement) Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name,
(Submission) Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
(Dependence) Give us this day our daily bread,
(Loving Release) And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
(Deliverance) Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
(Eternal Glory) For yours is the kingdom the power and glory forever amen.
What is our role in prayer? (John MacArthur)
