Starman...

Starman 
Songwriters: Jones, David Robert (otherwise known as 'David Bowie)



Didn't know what time it was, the lights were low
I leaned back on my radio
Some cat was layin' down some rock'n'roll lotta soul, he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive
CHORUS
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He told us not to blow it

'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie
I had to phone someone so I picked on you
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too!
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two
Look out your window I can see his light
If we can sparkle he may land tonight
Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright
CHORUS(twice)

The Living 'Word...'

Inspired by this post today from Vigilant Citizen:


His articles always inspire me. This is a comment that I generated for the site, also in response to someone else's comment.

Not surprising one little bit.. and is it interesting that now the ‘protests’ if that is what they are.. I hope they are real, but who knows.. but it is interesting that they are now spreading to Syria.. eh? This wave of protests is like the tsunami that hit Japan… relentless and well-timed.. I am hoping they are real, and it is inspiring.. but sometimes you have to wonder..  have faith, yet still doubt everything..


An addition to my thoughts above.. I want to believe that the protests are real.. I believe the spirit behind them is real, for true freedom.. yet there seem to be other forces capitalizing on those quests for freedom.. and turning them to their own purposes..
But it is almost 2012.. are they on track or a little behind.. Iran did not go down as they thought it would and may not.. at least not until all the other ME countries are down for the count… but Iran is different than the rest.. of all the countries that are a threat to the regime (Israel), that one is the ‘Mother Monster’ to them..
Then someone else commented - compare this passage: Zechariah 6: 5-6:



Interesting that it says in Zechariah 6:5: 
 5The angel replied to me, "These are the (G)four spirits of heaven, going forth after standing before the Lord of all the earth,
 6with one of which the black horses are going forth to the (H)north country; and the white ones go forth after them, while the dappled ones go forth to the (I)south country.
 7"When the strong ones went out, they were eager to go to (J)patrol the earth." And He said, "Go, patrol the earth." So they patrolled the earth.


The world forces certainly are 'going forth' and 'patrolling the earth.' Question is, are they doing God's work or their own? Or both..?

Compare to Revelation, Chapter 6

And my comments were:

...I didn't use to but I see it more all the time... in a mystical sense.. that the words of the Bible really are true.. when it says it is the "Living Word' I believe that it is actually still going on, as we speak.. what goes on in there.. is always happening all over again.. again and again, until we learn... perhaps the 'elite' 'know' that in a certain sense... in the New Testament it says that "Even demons may quote scripture" meaning that the minions of the dark side are perfectly aware of the Light, but it doesn't mean that they love it. So the 'dark side' knows the 'Light' intellectually, and are capitalizing on that knowledge, trying to forestall the inevitable.. yet the players don't realize that they are playing out the Great Game.. hastening their own demise.. fulfilling it.. Destiny.. and we must have faith and believe that it will all come to naught.. their evil plans.. we must believe.. that what should happen... will...

God speed everyone! And God Bless..
