HESUS JOY CHRIST / Matthew's Foretold Discussion of Verse Twenty-Five



There's the website with all of the HESUS JOY CHRIST stuff !!
Just search "hesus joy christ", make sure that is what was searched for, and not an alternate such as "jesus joy christ" on www.google.ca and in a couple of months it may appear instead of the old links that appear now.
On this site there are all the HESUS JOY CHRIST blog posts to date, in an easily accessible non-linear format, as well as all the HJC animation dating back to 2009.


There's the website with all the other artwork!!

Just search vid932008 on www.google.ca to see it come up first in the list.
On this site there are almost all the artwork blog posts in an easily accessible non-linear format, as well as all the other artwork and poetry.



There's a blast of WATERCOLOUR !!

Since some recipients are not able to recieve notices that include video, I have decided to only include a link to the video to which this blog post refers, for these last six or so verses, which will conclude the entire discussion of the  HESUS JOY CHRIST  series to date.
Here is the link to the animation that includes the verse that this specific blog post is discussing :


Since I get such a kick, still, out of blathering on about this stuff, I'm continuing on with the discussion of HESUS JOY CHRIST / Matthew's Foretold !!

This is the last verse of all this discussion. Sunday afternoons, beginning in November, will become an animation endeavour, working on Matthew's Five's Nine.  I may post discussion of Theology of the Body, or the Q'uran (?), but I better get some momentum in animating this project that has been ongoing for more than two years.  I am now animating scene twelve of about 36 scenes .

 Verse 25      25Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis,f Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him.

-f-  25 That is, the Ten Cities

from the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter Four, New International Version

 Verse 25      25Large crowds of secularism, / .  municipalities,  / . churches, / . hospitals, / . and the far side led with them.

from the text of the animation HESUS JOY CHRIST / Matthew's Foretold
written by R David Foster

 Verse 25 Discussion              

           Sure – it is curious, perhaps, to know where the people who were fans of Jesus came from, but what difference does it make to us today ?  He was executed anyways, and probably most of his fans weren't fans any more after such a disappointment.

           We have already touched on how Galilee was a secular area, so this verse tells us that secular people were fans of Jesus.  Reading this scripture today tells us that secular people saw value in Jesus' ministry, and that there could be secular value in the Gospel for us today.  So how many religious people today are towing the line only as far as the secular value and not investing in the existential value of scripture and faith ?  How many secular people acknowledge that the secular values they hold have roots in religion ? 

           Balancing whole and part, female and male, has the advantage of both whole and part, but comes under attack for being wholistic, by those who only have faith in “part”, and also comes under attack for being partial, by those who only have faith in “wholes”.  This is christianity, balancing whole and part, female and male, each forgiving the other.  When one acknowledges value, essentially they are acknowledging an integration and balance of whole and part. Many people acknowledge only either the whole or the part, and will support only either of those two aspects, overlooking the balance of whole and part that accomplishes.  This is prevalent both within and without organized religion. This is rampant both within and without of organized religion.  Sunday school teachers impress the importance of the whole, even at the expense of the part. Preachers insist the importance of the part, at the expense of the whole. Almost all of society promotes and dismisses in ignorance of any balance of whole and part, yet balancing whole and part is the only thing that works, so often in an individual's understanding they are unaware that what they are promoting is a specific instance of a balance of whole and part.

           So the sacred One relationship presents value, by balancing whole and part, to society, and is put to work promoting either whole or part, depending on the inclination of those in control.  Society, and every part of society, leads with individuals that they have faith in.  Since the sacred One relationship has a great deal of value, the spouses are often called upon to lead on behalf of those in control.  This practice is prevalent.

           Jesus, as an original balance of whole and part, was able to shock and awe with his ability and ideas.  Today, the opportunity to balance whole and part is present to everyone, and so the capabilities of such a balance are taken for granted.  Rather than lead, the sacred One relationship is at work in the trenches, on the ground floor, getting their hands dirty and pulling themselves up by their boot straps !  Rather than taking the lead, like an executive or an officer, the sacred One relationship has the respect of its peers for what it can accomplish first hand.

Large crowds of secularism, . . .

           So where large crowds followed Jesus, there is an abundance of people looking to make use of the spouses of the sacred One relationship.  The secular world hires, trains, educates, empowers, delegates to, and holds the spouses of the sacred One relationship, or anyone balancing whole and part, responsible.
          Urban planners, on behalf of municipalities, create suburbs for those who balance whole and part in the forms of consumption and work.
. . . municipalities, . .
. . . churches, . . .

         Churches are valued for the regular attendance they can muster from those balancing whole and part.

. . . hospitals, . . .

          Hospitals are almost religious institutions themselves and promote the healing and cures they accomplish, disregarding the people who die there.  Even the far side of society can employ the accomplishments and capabilities of those balancing whole and part.  The spouses of the sacred One relationship, as well as any one else who balances whole and part, are who everyone is looking for, seeking to hire, seeking to heal, seeking to attend, and seeking to live.

. . . and the far side . . .

          The municipalities are the same as a region of ten cities.  The churches are the same as the sacred city Jerusalem.  The hospitals are the same as the benevolent region supporting the churches and Jerusalem.  The region beyond the Jordan is the far reaches of society, extending as far as, and including, those on the far side of society.

" Ma, Ma, Ma, My Sharona !"
          I'm sure Mike is still singing “My Sharona” on karaoke without me, and enjoying not having a crew under the maintenance manager !
