“Your Strongest Super Power”

20190820_115546 All Superheroes have a super power, but what did God give you? The very fact you’re not good at a lot of things, but very good at a few, shows where your powers lie. How much are you using them? Do you get to use them?

Obviously I’m not talking about your ability to dodge bullets, leap over tall buildings, or throw cars around, but I’ll bet you’re like me, not very good at a lot of things, but above average in a few, and that’s where you love to live. That’s where you come alive!

I’ve heard people with a gift to sing sending chills up my spine in awe! But I can’t. I’m also not mechanical. I love hot cars but I’ve never had one because I hate working on them! And hiring it done is too expensive! So no sleek muscle car for me. But I can live with that, because those are not my super powers, as much as I might enjoy it if they were.

After all, Spiderman can’t be Wolverine, he has to be Spiderman! And the world needs a Spiderman! How would it look if Aquaman tried to be Thor? Or Black Widow, Captain America? We each must be who we are, not who we are not, and each of us have our own powers.

What would be my top three? I love writing… and teaching spiritual things of God… and I’m pretty good at remodeling a house. I hate working on a car, but I enjoy improving a house. I seem to understand what it takes for a house to work much more than I do a car. I also understand a life that flows in Spirit, walking in the power of God. I understand how God has designed things to work, and I love studying it, digging for deeper understandings.

So what would I choose as my top super power, out of those three? Teaching the power of a life with God. No question about it, that’s me. Even all my writings pertain to that in some way. But I made my living as a truck driver. As of yet, writing and teaching has never paid the bills, but that’s alright, Spidey was under appreciated too, and I still love my powers. In fact, God never meant for our powers to be about the money. For many of us, the lure of money is a danger to the proper use of our super powers.

But why am I bringing this up? To ask you if you’re using your super powers? Do they have a place on a front burner, or are they lost in a life out of control? And are you using your powers for God, the one who gave them to you? Oh you may think you’re just that good! But no, you accidentally fell into a vat of weird unknown chemicals and instead of it killing you, YOU BECAME YOU! I hope you like yourself. God wants you to.

Perhaps you’re not happy with his choices? You’re stuck with being Spiderman and you’d rather be Thor? Well I suggest you get over it! Be thankful you’re still alive! (After falling in that vat!) Start being the best Spiderman you can be. There are a lot of people out there needing what O’Spidey has to offer. They need help and Spidey can save the day, if he will. Get right with God and get those super powers in gear. And don’t forget to thank him for your incredible life. The life you have the chance to live, if you just begin to truly appreciate and develop your God-given gifts. It’s supernatural.

So what’s your top three? And what do you choose as your number one?

This is just something a little different from Soul Sailor tonight. Just the mood I’m in.

 I built this teepee as a spiritual get-away. Jesus was both a physical and spiritual carpenter too. 

“New Wine Skin” #8

We have arrived. It has been a journey. The Apostle John was exiled to the Isle of Patmos for preaching Jesus, but we have arrived at the Isle of Passover! There were many excommunicated from the church because of preaching Passover!

There are those who say, “What can we do about it now? Surely it doesn’t matter anymore.” But is it still in your  New Testament Bible? Yes it is, both Book of Acts and !st Corinthians 11. Did Jesus set it as an example? Yes he did. Did the Apostles teach to continue it? Yes they did. Did the early church fathers do so? Yes they did! But as the church headed down a bad path with Constantine, around 300 AD, it seems Rome had finally won their way! So should we stay on that path? Are we justified in such a course?

If you have sailed this far with me, then you know most of the points I just mentioned, and I have but a little more to give. If you missed all the evidence laid out thus far, simply read backwards all the “New Wine Skin” articles, and you will find that it is true, the Apostles taught to continue a Christian form of Passover, and the early church did for many years, but it came under attack by bishops of Rome, and it was the beginning of the end, and now here we are today.

Many Bible experts think that Jesus did not teach us much about how to actually have “church”. Jesus was birthing the church but did not teach the details of running it, or its exact form, but I say he did! He did it in many ways! He showed us every day! As he walked about, as he ate meals and had fellowship, as he loved people and helped people and taught the Kingdom of God to one and all, as he had church EVERYWHERE as natural as a flowing river. Even as the Book of Acts church immediately had a heavy emphasis on fellowship, meals, Lord’s Supper, home meetings, and the Word. I wonder where they got that from? The evidence is beyond denying.

I strongly believe the Lord’s Supper is also God’s instructions as to what His church is to be, as if a holy template laid down for all to see and practice. The Lord’s Supper is a perfect picture of God’s family and fellowship. And it even included a devil to be exposed! That Supper is rich and overflowing with teachings for having church!

But we have short-formed the template and short circuited what church is meant to be. Is it too late? Or can there yet be a last days revival? And if there is to be, should we not go back to all the original templates our Lord set for us? Not simply the Passover meal/ Lord’s Supper, but all the templates! I think we should give the devil a spiritual heart attack as he sees a remnant, a powerful remnant coming alive in the old ways again! Is God asking too much of us modern Christians? It’s all in our Bibles.

Many Prophets of God have said this last Passover was very significant because the COVID 19 had forced people to stay in their homes as death haunted the streets. There had not been a Passover like it since going all the way back to the original one in Egypt! All the way back to Moses! And now there are Prophets looking at Pentecost. May 31st. If this last Passover was significant, might God also have plans for this Pentecost? Have you made yourself ready? 10 virgins are predicted to awake, but only 5 have the oil that poured out at Pentecost! Could there be a supernatural refreshing?

Over a year ago God showed me we were crossing a spiritual line in June of 2020. I haven’t said a lot about that because it’s hard to explain. I was on a 14 day separation to God in a special place, and I was watching the Orion meteor shower of 2018. How long is an hour with God? I felt God asked me that, that night. If my math is right, it’s roughly 42 years. And though we have been faithful to doing Passover for three years now, I never thought about Pentecost till this year! And the very next day after Pentecost, begins June! We cross the line on Pentecost! Wow. I’m still shocked by it all. Like I said, it’s hard to explain, unless you have ears to hear, and most don’t.

I have been preparing for Pentecost ever since I was made aware of this. I fast and pray each Friday. I will do so again this next Friday as we enter the Pentecost weekend. I love the way Jesus never forced anyone to do anything. He offered them wisdom and truth. Some of them were wise enough to lay hold of God’s many treasures, and many were not. This too, is the simple template of God’s church, and now we have our last piece of evidence to give before this blog site moves on to whatever God is planning next, but we will remain “Soul Sailors”. This has become a permanent theme of this site.

Okay…if you Google > “Christian form of Passover”, you should be able to find Wikipedia —- “Passover (Christian holiday). At that site you will find quotes by both Melito of Sardis, and a man named, Apollinaris who wrote things during those times concerning the practice of Passover, still going on with the church, at that time. But following those quotes is a subtitle of “Excommunication for celebrating passover”. In my mind it’s hard to understand what would be so evil about the Lord’s Supper/ Passover that would be grounds for excommunication. This is more evidence of the bad path we were on! (And maybe still are?)

Anyway… this is the information under that heading: “Christians who kept the biblical Passover were considered Quartodeciman because they kept Passover on the 14th day of Nisan. Polycrates of Ephesus, was a late 2nd century leader who was excommunicated (along with all Quartodecimans) by Pope Saint Victor for observing the Christian Passover on the 14th of Nisan and not switching it to a Sunday resurrection celebration. He, Polycrates, claimed he was simply following the practices according to scripture and the Gospels, as taught by the Apostles John and Philip, as well as by church leaders such as Polycarp and Melito of Sardis.” (Next paragraph.)> “According to Catholic Encyclopedia, neither Jesus Christ nor the early church leaders changed the Passover celebration to Easter. In fact, the Jewish feast was taken over into the Christian Easter celebration.”

And there you have it, folks. One last confirmation that some kind of a Christian form of Passover was continued by the early church for many years. Has God changed his mind? Has the Book of Acts or 1st Corinthians 11 changed? Might he be pleased if some of us got back to the original templates our Lord set?

I have set the sails of our small fellowship according to the old maps of our Bible. I am also remodeling our house to better fit what I believe will be a people waking up and looking for such places of simplicity. We are under no law requiring us to be experts on this Passover meal. God sees our hearts, and we do a simple form of it that we find to be rich and rewarding. Jonathon Cahn helped us understand more this year, and we implemented some of it as best we could. But most important is our hearts towards God and coming back together in that simple blood of Jesus family relationships. Simplicity is one of the templates our Lord gave us. Church Everywhere.

Modern church does not easily fit the old templates of the early church fathers. These things are a problem for them and the large amounts of money they need to keep afloat. They do not want to talk about these things, and all the while they look more and more like the church of Laodicea everyday. But we refuse to change the set of our sails. The sails of many churches today are set for the “great falling away”, but as Israel said when God challenged them to walk in the old ways… “We will not.” (Jer. 6:16)

This ship may look awesome, but what is it’s destination? Where is the set of those sails headed? Are we too caught up in fancy and powerful looks to be concerned about destination?

“Life at Sea”

87b5395405443fa98fcdb798cb2bf489

“The Devout”

Life at sea, life in Spirit, it’s all the same to me.

Lovers of land and I do not agree.

  Life in Spirit, not in flesh.

Live by the Laws of the Sea!

When Jesus said, “Abide in me, my words in you, ask what ye will, and it shall be.”

But what is this “abiding” which he speaks?

To be filled with the Sea?

To live by sails alone?

Just the Wind and I?

Come Holy Spirit, I need thee.

Fill my sails I pray.

 

“New Wine Skin” #7

35a792f87b41dbd59e2a06030204cb03 We are well out at sea. Are you still with me?

New Wine skin episode #7. Seven is a special number. I call it the number of faith. Because God RESTED on the 7th day, his work complete. Faith is a state of REST. Jesus called all those who were weary and heavy laden to come to him, and he would give them REST. We cease from our own works and enter His! I call it “Living in the 7th Day”, or L7D for short. But I have written of these things and right now we have our case to continue proving! The case concerning “The Missing 200 Years”. And so this ship sails.

And so as we presented in last episode, how this amazing spiritual leader by the name of Polycarp, began disagreeing against the bishop of Rome concerning “The Lord’s Table” and “Passover”. As I studied the 200 years, this is the first major fork in the road I came to. This appears to be the fork which started the domino affect for all the others, and that too, makes it of supreme importance.

Polycarp had direct contact with all the Apostles and he stated plainly that a Christian form of Passover and a meal was taught to continue by them. Rome wanted to make changes to this. Polycarp refused, and others followed. What started out as a friendly disagreement would soon escalate to become very serious. Rome was determined to make this change even if it took decades, and it did. And now today we are still living it, and have not corrected it. God is calling us back to our roots.

I left the modern church system to find something closer to what Jesus actually did and taught. Large churches struggle with things like intimate meals and family atmosphere. Of course Satan made the “Lord’s Welcoming Table” as a priority on his list to hit. That Table is a simple practice of everything God’s church is meant to be! It is symbolic, and a reminder of everything our Lord’s church is meant to be. By derailing God’s emphasis on close fellowship, Satan is able to “water down”, twist, pervert, and derail many other things in the church, because without a true “Template”, then that which is discipled can be twisted too! And there is no clear vision to correct it, or even point it out.

So…with these thoughts in mind, lets get to more of the historical evidence only found in those Missing 200 years, of which this ship sails. >

Now we have an historian to read form, by the name of Eusebius. Go ahead and “Google” him if you doubt his credentials. He lived during the time of Constantine and had access to historical writings and witnesses of that time period. Again, I’m giving you excerpts only pertaining to our case at hand. This comes from his History Book #5 and chapter 23.

“A question of no small importance arose at that time. For all the parishes of all Asia, as from an older tradition, held that the 14th day of the moon, on which the Jews were commanded to sacrifice the lamb, shouldbe observed as the feast of the Saviour’s Passover.”

“But it was not the custom of the churches of the rest of the world to end it at this time…”

Synods and assemblies were held on this count…” (The synods voted in disagreement with the Asia churches.)

Chapter 24> “but the Bishops of Asia, led by Polycrates (Note: Not Polycarp) decided to hold to the old custom handed down to them…”

“We observe the exact day, neither adding, nor taking away. For in Asia also great lights have fallen to sleep…” “Among these are Phillip, one of the twelve apostles…” “And moreover, John, who was both a witness and a teacher, who reclined upon the bosom of the Lord…” “And Polycarp in Smyrna, who was a bishop and martyr…” (A few others are also mentioned. Lesser known people.)

“All these observed the 14th day of the Passover according to the Gospel, deviating in no respect, but following the rule of faith.”

“And I also, Polycrates…” “For seven of my relatives were bishops, and I am the eighth. And my relatives always observed the day when the people put away the leaven.”

“I, therefore, brethren, who have lived 65 years in the Lord, and have met with the brethren throughout the world, and have gone through every holy scripture, am not affrighted by terrifying words. For those greater than I have said ‘We ought to obey God rather than man.'”

Chapter 25: “Those in Palestine whom we have recently mentioned, Narissus and Theophilus, and with them Cassius, bishop of the church of Tyre, and Clarus of the church of Ptolemais, and those who met with them, having stated many things respecting the tradition concerning the Passover which had come to them in succession from the apostles,…”

I have trusted you with a lot today. I hope you will dissect these quotes and what they really say. They speak of the apostles more than once and how this was passed down from them. They even speak of not being afraid of terrifying words! They were threatened! And that to obey God is greater than to obey man! You can see what a division this was and going all the way back to the very apostles of our Lord! What higher authority is there? Surely not you or I today.

But somehow, by the time of Constantine, the church goes down a fork of the road leading to today and we still refuse to correct things. But a new wine skin is growing and God is correcting! This year we were all, the whole world (!), was supposed to be “in their homes”! And this happened at Passover! God was giving one and all a chance to get on board the new ship sailing! Jonathon Cahn gave a beautiful Passover via the TV, and it was awesome! God made it so easy for us to do that we will be without excuse for not hearing the Spirit of God calling to us! And now comes Pentecost! But if you disregarded Passover, how are you qualified for Pentecost? The church needs a true repentance and wake-up call!

But the call has gone forth! Even from blog sites and nobodies like this! And yet people proudly declare we will not walk in the old ways! We will not sail by the old maps! We cling to the dirt of earthly ways and desire no life at sea, powered only by the Wind!

Special messengers are speaking. God even forcefully forced us into our homes but who has eyes to see? Modern church loves the laws of the land, not the laws of the sea, as kings they claim to be.

More coming soon, but please study with diligence what you already have. Much very strong evidence has already been presented in this series of a New Wine Skin. And I would say again, for those who gave it no thought, Gideon was at a wine press, not the grind stone. Selah.

The hour is growing late. The Ten Virgins awake. But who has oil? It is found where the Wind blows at Pentecost.

The Awakening.

20200410_185021

Passover’s not important anymore, we have Easter and Lent.

But some say COVID 19 was a messenger sent!

And those who missed Passover will miss Pentecost too!

What say you?

Do you know of these things, or just casting in the dark?

There is mystery with God as he stirs the pot.

The waters are troubled, an angel touches down, but what know ye of these things?

I hope, a lot!

There is an awakening.

“New Wine Skin” #6

si-datu-bua1 The skies are growing dark as we enter these waters, and a volcano smokes in the background threatening to erupt. But we live in the magic! And that is enough.

My personal experience has been that most modern Christians don’t like the evidence I have brought to light. They don’t like what I have found in the “Missing 200 Years”. They don’t want to know and they continue to feed their pet Pastor who shelters them from hard truth. Poor things. Yes indeed, these can be dark waters to sail, but only because we have made them that way.

They only are a threat if you’re afraid to open your mind. Everyone has their own reasons for being closed minded. Maybe they think they already have all the truth, but how can they know if they never study other evidence? Some know they are wrong, but do not want to change and do not want to be reminded of it. Some don’t like it that Jesus taught “Blessed are the poor”, because they love money and spend much time pursuing it.

There are many reasons why people have allowed the “Missing 200 Years” to become the “Missing 200 Years”, and they want to keep it that way, especially “large” and “rich” churches, because what Jesus taught and started does not work as well in large congregations as it does simple home and family settings. I sincerely believe that what has come to be called the “Micro Church Movement” is the fresh Wind from heaven God is anointing to cause huge change! Like he anointed Gideon in the days of old. Hence, a new wine skin. Gideon was found at the wine press, not the grind stone.

So here we go, the sails are set for deeper waters yet. And if you’re still sailing with me, then you’re ready for your next quote.This quote was written by a man named Irenaeus. He was a disciple of Polycarp, and as such, would have had close relationship and knowledge of the man. All these strange names of people back in the day can be “googled” and proven of their existence in history. This is an account of one of the first encounters Polycarp had with a Rome Bishop. This was just the beginning of a matter that would grow much worse!

Our quote comes from: Irenaeus, Fragment 3 (Excerpts) > “And when the blessed Polycarp was sojourning in Rome in the time of Anicetus, although a slight controversy had arisen among them as to certain other points, they were at once well inclined towards each other (with regard to the matter at hand), not willing that any quarrel should arise between them upon this head. For neither could Anicetus persuade Polycarp to forego the observance (Passover) (in his own way), in as much as these things had been always so observed by John the disciple of our Lord, and by other apostles with whom he had been conversant…”

The facts are very plain. Don’t let the old language convince you to ignore these words. We can all understand what is being plainly said here “if we want to”.  No closed mind! A closed mind is a wasted space! Like the Dead Sea!!!

Notice that Polycarp is face to face with Anicetus. Notice the Bishop tries to persuade Polycarp to forego his observance of Passover! But remember that Polycarp was dicipled by the apostle John himself, and it is plainly stated that John and other apostles had been always observing the Passover! And we’re well beyond the Lord’s resurrection at this point! If Passover was to no longer be observed in some form, (and that form is given in 1st Corinthians 11), then it would have ended long ago!

Irenaeus has recorded history on paper, in his own words, an account of what happened at this meeting. Anicetus tries to persuade Polycarp to stop practicing the Passover as he was taught by the Apostle John, and as was confirmed to him by other Apostles he had conversation with. Polycarp refused to disobey the Apostles for the sake of this Rome bishop. These two agreed to disagree in peaceful terms, but this matter will escalate as time goes by. These are also the roots of the Catholic church, and if you think the Catholic church has changed from her roots, then you are easily deceived and unwilling to recognize truth. But on that note >

I’d like to point out I was in that same boat. I’m not trying to throw stones. He who lives in a glass house should not throw stones! I was working hard in deception or lack of knowledge for a long time. I was a faithful worker in the modern Protestant churches. It doesn’t matter the denomination. What matters is what is truth? Jesus said that only the truth sets us free! But now I’m so grateful for the freedom I have found! But with freedom also comes responsibility. I’m not teaching that Christians should leave modern church unless they are responsible enough to find, or start a group that is true blue to what God has actually said. But if you’re not that faithful and responsible, then don’t be surprised if you find you’re part of the five foolish virgins who woke up too late to find the flow of God’s oil, and were left behind. The wise still seek Jesus, no matter what!

So this is our quote for the day, and this is more evidence for you to give due consideration as to what each of us should do. More will come with each article, but each evidence deserves its proper time of consideration before moving to the next. If you have not studied 1st Corinthians 11 concerning what the Apostle Paul instructed as the Lord’s Supper, then you still need to. If the Lord’s Supper is as a template to all things church, then it is of supreme importance! If you have not studied in Revelation where Jesus graded both the church of Smyrna and Laodicea, then you need to. Remember, Polycarp was the Overseer of Smyrna, appointed and discipled by John himself. This man was highly qualified and faithful to his task in his day. Can we say the same of us? It’s not too late to change the set of our sails if we only will.

“New Wine Skin” #5

unnamed Why are we sailing old paths? Why do I insist upon the oldest map?

“Thus saith the Lord, stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk therein.” (Jer. 6:16)

Our journey into the old continues. I do not see that our new ways are as good as the old ways our Lord set from the beginning. Over a period of 2000 years we have changed the set of the sails so much, that we have actually made a U-turn. We’re sailing back towards the world! We must shine the light of our early forefathers again! Their knowledge must be known again! Now let us learn from this bishop Polycarp whom the Lord gave such a high grade in Revelation 2:8, the Church of Smyrna.

Polycarp is regarded as one of three chief Apostolic Fathers. With Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, we have Polycarp, bishop (Overseer) of Smyrna. Writings have survived concerning these three and others. Polycarp became of utmost importance to me when one: I realized he was the Overseer of the Smyrna Church when it got its excellent report card, and two, when I saw Polycarp standing against a major change that the bishop of Rome wanted to implement. According to Polycarp, this change went directly against the teachings of the Apostles of Christ!

I call them the “Missing 200 Years”. What changed from the time of Jesus, to around 300 A.D., that the Church was suddenly willing to follow a pagan Emperor like Constantine? It’s a time period of 300 years, but we mostly know the first 100. It’s from 100 A.D. to 300 that we seem to be in the dark! Lack of knowledge! Something changed and we don’t even know what or how? Previous articles have the details of what we’re speaking of here, if you need to catch up, but Polycarp refused to go down this fork of the road! And after his death the Church evidently eventually gave into changes coming down from Rome in more ways than one. Not only by way of the Bishops of Rome, but also the pagan Emperor. And where did this change begin? With the Lord’s Supper of all things. And we continue it to this day!

You might think this is a small matter and not so important, but evidently Polycarp and others of that time would not agree with you. What happened to the Lord’s Supper and Passover Communion done the way it was in Book of Acts and also as described by Paul in 1st Corinthians 11? Why do we not have the “Welcoming Table of the Lord” as the early Church did? Why do we not do a Christian form of a Passover meal and Communion as the Apostles said to continue? Is it a small thing to ignore the Apostles of Christ? Is it a small thing to ignore anything still written in our New Testament Bible? The Apostles, Polycarp, and others of our early Church fathers did not see it as a small thing. But do we? Actions speak more truth than words.

The Christian form of Passover, and the Lord’s Supper as it was done in the early Church and mentioned in Book of Acts more than once, came under attack. Polycarp led the way on resisting the change, but we don’t do it today. The Church has not done it as the Apostles taught in a very long time! We need to seek the old paths if we desire to be fully restored! The Lord’s Supper is not a small thing to God the Father, and is a template to all things Church! A true template is always of utmost importance!

I’m about to give you some quotes from that time from Polycarp himself, but first I would like to suggest something for consideration. Have you considered how much communication we have today? We have a ton of it! Texting, email, Marco Polo, Twitter, on line videos, blogging, radio, person to person, the list goes on and on! And that’s a good thing, right? But in all this communication, have you noticed how little real “conversation” we have today?

Communication is one thing, but true “communion” is “conversation”. Because communion is to share! Both talking and sharing and having close relationship like real friends and family! That is the template for God’s Church! God’s family! God does not have a business, he has a family! We’re not his employees, we’re his children! And Communion without the Lord’s Supper is like communication without conversation! Usually rather one sided, to the point, and on your way you go! That sounds just like our short-form Communion table of today! But it is not what the early Church of the Apostles did. Would you go on record declaring it a small thing? Has your actions declared it?

COVID 19 has made us think, hasn’t it. We have one last chance to treasure people and relationships more than money, fame, and image. If we fail to get back to a true love of God and love of people, then this window will eventually close. The window will remain closed until the next judgement shatters it in a trillion pieces and makes COVID 19, and the Twin Towers look like a picnic!

Polycarp lived form 69 to 155 A.D.. He had one surviving letter, and it was to the Philippians. You are about to read words that are close to 2,000 years old, who was one of the men the Apostles passed the torch to.

His letter to the Philippians, Chapter X- Exhortation to the practice of virtue – “Stand fast, therefore, in these things, and follow the example of the Lord, being firm and unchangeable in the faith, loving the brotherhood, and being attached to one another, joined together in the truth, exhibiting the meekness of the Lord in your intercourse with one another, and despising no one. When you can do good, defer it not, because “alms delivers from death.” Be all of you subject to one another “having your conduct blameless among the Gentiles,” that ye may both receive praise for your good works, and the Lord may not be blasphemed through you. But woe to him by whom the name of the Lord is blasphemed! Teach, therefore, sobriety to all, and manifest it also in your own conduct.”

Once again this article is a lot to ponder before consuming more. I wanted you to have a taste of some words written by this man’s own hand. You can get a feel for his nature and character from these words. Add to that what Jesus said concerning the Church he was Overseer of. Polycarp’s letter to the Philippians is full of words and exhortation such as this, but we have no other writings surviving from his own hand. The quotes coming in the next article of “New Wine Skin” will contain quotes from others who recorded Church history, and also stood with Polycarp and wrote of him.

These are waters we must come to know if we are to be true Soul Sailors. You must know the reasons why you sail by a different map than the moderns of our day, which I call the Motorboats and Rowboats. If true sailors we be, then we cannot be unknowing concerning the WIND as others may be. We have fallen in love with a life at sea powered only by the WIND. Therefore, we cannot be indifferent and unknowing as others. If we are to survive and succeed by sails alone, then our skills and understanding must match the WAY we have chosen. Praise be our Lord forever. Amen.

God is a rewarder of those who are diligent in seeking understanding and skill. Let us sail a true course, set by our maps of the old ways.
