Rootbeer Kid – Someday

I slammed my head on the table,

I stared at the moon, 

and it blocked the stars twinkle.

I know to you, I’m invisible,

worthless, and simple,

a man, with nothing to give,

a man who fell, 

down the hole, 

and into the net. 

But if you only knew,

how much I loved you.

You would 

reconsider your actions,

you would open your eyes,

and awake, to a love planet.  

They say, 

that true love

is eternal.

That once you

experience it,

you elevate,

and overcome any hurdle.

That’s the place,

I wanted to take you!

To show you,

that It was possible!  

I wanted to help you, erase all the pain,

but you decide to hold on to it,

and partake in it, on a day to day.

You pushed me, and my love away.

All I can say, is that I will pray,

that someday, you will awake,

that someday, you will accept love, 

and not let it run away.

Rootbeer Kid – Bible Scripture of the day

1 Kings 19:11-18

George Lamsa Translation

11And he said, Go forth and stand upon the mount before the LORD.
And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD;
but the LORD was not in the wind;
and after the wind an earthquake;
but the LORD was not in the earthquake:12And after the earthquake a fire;
but the LORD was not in the fire;
and after the fire a still small voice.13And when Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave.
And, behold, there came a voice to him, and said to him, What are you doing here, Elijah?14And he said, I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts, because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword;
and I, even I only, am left;
and they seek my life, to take it away.15And the LORD said to him, Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus;
then go and anoint Hazael to be king over Aram;16And Jehu the son of Jamshi you shall anoint to be king over Israel;
and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah you shall anoint to be prophet in your place.17And it shall come to pass, that him who escapes from the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay;
and him who escapes from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.18Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.

Rootbeer Kid – Gospel of Philip

Uprooting Evil

When Abraham […] to see what he was going to see, [he] circumcised the flesh of the foreskin, [telling] us that it’s necessary to destroy the flesh.

[Most (things)] of [the] world can stand up and live as long as their [insides are hidden. If they’re revealed], they die, as [illustrated] by the visible human. [As long as] the human’s guts are hidden, 83 the human is alive. If their guts are exposed and come out of them, the human will die. It’s the same way with the tree. While its root is hidden, it blossoms and grows. If its root is exposed, the tree dries up. That’s what it’s like with everything that’s born in the world, not only the revealed, but also the hidden; because as long as the root of evil is hidden, it’s strong. But if it’s recognized, it dissolves, and if it’s revealed, it dies. So the Word says, “Already the axe is laid at the root of the trees.” It won’t (just) cut, (because) that which will be cut blossoms again. Rather, the axe digs down into the ground until it brings up the root. Jesus plucked out the root completely, but others did so partially. As for us, let every one of us dig down to the root of the evil within and pluck it out from its root in us. It’ll be uprooted if we recognize it. But if we don’t recognize it, it takes root within us and bears its fruit in us. It masters us, and we’re forced to serve it. It captures us so that we do what we do [not] want to; and we do [not] do what we want to. [It’s] powerful because we haven’t recognized it. It’s active as long as [it exists]. [Ignorance] is the mother of [all evil]. Ignorance will cause [death, because] what exists from [ignorance] neither did exist nor [does exist], nor will they come into being […] 84 they’ll be perfected when the whole truth is revealed, because the truth is like ignorance. When it’s hidden, it rests within itself, but if it’s revealed and recognized, it’s glorified inasmuch as it’s stronger than ignorance and error. It gives freedom. The Word says, “If you’ll know the truth, the truth will make you free.” Ignorance is slavery; knowledge is freedom. If we know the truth, we’ll find the fruits of truth within us. If we unite with it, it’ll receive our fullness.

Rootbeer Kid – Alcohol Abuse

I wanted to take time and write about alcohol abuse. The point of me writing about this topic, is not to preach to you, but it’s me pleading with you. If you’re a young man, a young woman, please, don’t enter into that place.  Look, you know, just about anything can be abused, there’s not doubt about it.  But for those who have seen the destruction of alcohol abuse, they know, how destructive it can be towards not only the individual, but also the family.  Growing up, in the environment I grew up in, seeing alcoholics was a pretty normal site.  As a kid, I didn’t understand, you kind of, became desensitized to the whole situation.  Most drunk people were  very nice to me, I would ask them for some spare change, and most times, they would give it to me.  What really saved me, was my mother.  She always reminded me about the condition these folks found themselves in.  My mother felt empathy towards them, but she also reminded me about the lesson in all this.  A lesson in life, that no amount of pain you’re going through, should be an excuse, to destroy your life, because as you continue down this path, the greatest pain, is felt by those who love you. If I bring this topic up, it’s for a reason, hey you young man, hey you young woman, the damage may not be felt right away, but later in life, when you have grandchildren, who enjoy your presence, the damage may be irreversible. I pray that The Creator will heal, whatever pain you’re trying to forget.

Rootbeer Kid – Andrew Gabriel Roth on the importance of Aramaic in understanding the bible.

When you first begin your faith, you walk blindly. You read the bible, but you don’t understand it. And some people, will even say, it’s okay to arrive at different conclusions, but I feel, that’s completely wrong. If I wrote a book, I wrote for a certain audience, at a certain time, and in a certain language. Even If it’s translated to a different language, my message is clearer, in it’s original language. I believe that this plays a significant role in understanding the bible. Yahshua, never spoke English, he spoke in Aramaic.
