Fresh Air

They took all the trees
Put 'em in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to see 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Surrealism was born during the lunch break between the wars, a century ago. What had become of the precious Earth, of life. Nothing made sense anymore. The bombing catastrophes of crushed homes and disfigured people. Normal life was a nightmare and people couldn’t talk openly anymore, so surrealism became a language also; a visual code.

In 2009 the NGV hosted the Dali exhibition ‘Liquid Desire’ and the most haunting and disturbing painting was Mountain Lake (1938). The painting captured the helplessness of what was coming.

The backstory was that the communications between Neville Chamberlain, the British prime minister; and Adolf Hitler were cut, leading into the horrific 2nd War. Dali’s works are full of crutches, just as Melbourne artist John Brack’s shop windows, are of artificial limbs, for the war veterans that came home.

What will the artists say now. Apartments have become prison cells. The health concerns are genuine, but we need to think in our isolation, where Australia will be in the future. Not just for us, but for all of us. We are not media fodder, we are an educated and intelligent community.

Armies have fought for our freedom.

The world has not been that kind to its creative minds. They are different, and when they warn, nobody listens. Our country was de-regulated when our Government was looking into its pocket, instead of the future. Property was once just a home, not a card deck for speculators; but without industry what else can we offer. We have crushed the hope of young families having a home. What is the option?

The Agenda 21 folk have an idea, I don’t think its a very good one. De-populate and put people in high rise ‘Commission’ type of flats. I personally like fresh air and a step to sit on, in a yard, with a nice tree.

Local street artist Peter Drew is looking forward to a hug.

Yellow Taxi lyrics Joni Mitchell

 

 

He wasn’t dead, just asleep.

If a man wakes up after a public and violent death and then walks within the community and meets with friends, then death has no power over him. He must be the Messiah, the son of God. What does such a person say when he meets with others.

Yeshua said to them,”Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them , “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven, if you withhold forgiveness from anyone, it is withheld.”

About a week later his friends were fishing from a boat and Yeshua was on the shore, he called out to them;

“Children do you have any fish” No they answered.”Cast the net on the right side of the boat and you will find some”

When they landed the boat, they saw a charcoal fire in place, with fish laid on it and bread. Yeshua said “Bring some of the fish that you have just caught”..”Come and have some breakfast”

When he was on the Earth, he healed the sick, raised the dead, fed thousands, restored sight, stopped storms, walked on water, cast out demons and asked for nothing in return. He lived a modest life and rewarded kindness, yet he spoke with authority.

Through Yeshua we find a person who cares about the daily woes of his friends, and seeks to help them, when they are in need: despite being King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Greater love has no one than this, that one should lay down his life for his friends.

The Silent War

‘What fools the nations are to rage against the Lord! How strange that men should try to outwit God’       Psalm 2

On the first Passover, Moshe (Moses) gave the slaves clear instructions, from the Creator on what they should do.

They were to adopt a lamb into their homes for a few days, allowing the family and children to grow fond of it, and then slaughter it on the fourth day at dusk.The blood of the lamb was then smeared around the doorposts.

The spirit of death wound its way through the streets and killed the 1st born of every house that did not have the blood of protection.

This would be the prequel to spiritual drama that was forecast to take place in the future. Yeshua (Jesus) would be the Earths sacrifice that would fulfil the intent of the first Covenant (contract). The first Passover was the ‘birth pains’ or first steps to the creation of Israel as a Nation. The blood shed by the Creators Son enabled a protection over a people that would establish a Heavenly Kingdom. That would in later times descend from the Heavenly realm onto the Earth.

ISAIAH 53 'He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him

When the Israelites ate the Passover in Egypt, they ate the Lamb with bitter herbs, when the Apostles saw the crucifixion, it was a bitter payment for their freedom.

‘Here is how you are to eat it, with your belt fastened, shoes on your feet and a staff in your hand.’ Exodus 12

They were to to be dressed for a journey.

What is the Passover?

Families were gathered together in their homes in fear, as a silent killer passed over the land.

The Passover was to be remembered, as the Creator had a redemption plan. He does not want his people bound in slavery or lose eternal life. He has a Cure.

The first Passover saved the Israelites from Egypt. The Son of God freed his disciples from the bounds of sin, in the 2nd. In the third passover, His Kingdom will break the seals to a new dimension. The forth prophesied event are the Heavens descending on the Earth.

The new Covenant that Yeshua gave to His chosen, was  to love in all adversity. The wine became his blood that would be drunk at passover and the bread was his body that was broken for all humans. So they could have Eternal life.

Yeshua (Jesus) quoted PSALM 22 on the cross
My God my God why have you forsaken me....All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads. "He trusts in Lord," they say,let the Lord rescue him....I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint..my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth....they pierce my hands and feet..they divide my clothes...nations will bow before him....He has done it.

In 2020, this poignant Passover where the virus of death and restrictive laws loom outside our doors. We have time to reflect on where this world was heading. Many Passovers are training ops, but this Passover is exactly like the 1st, but worldwide.

The 2nd major Passover led to Yehua’s Crucifixion, where God’s son was the Lamb that prevented total destruction of the Earth and offered redemption for those that believe in him. By saving the Earth, he inherited it. At the Last Supper or Passover dinner. The 2nd cup of wine in the Seder is ‘I will deliver’.

This 3rd major Passover of 2020 is obviously very relevant in prophesy due to the fact that it not isolated (although we are) but rather a world wide judgement. This aligns with the cup of redemption. This is the anticipated wedding feast for the redeemed that will take place  on a heavenly realm.

The 4th wine in the seder,corresponding with a pivotal Passover, is ‘I will take’.The New World should be in full swing by then. There won’t be churches or bibles to guide the remnant. It will be the final call. This is a generation of martyrs that refuse to have the chip inserted into hand or forehead (for trading) or resist the ‘re-education’ programs. Just as Moses rescued the Slaves, this is when the Heavenly King, Yeshua destroys the armies gathered at Armageddon and takes control.This is the prophesy of Ezekiel and Revelation.

The ultimate message of each Passover is be dressed, packed and ready to go.

The Earth will then be returned to is former glory and people will shape the weapons into farm equipment.

Road trip

With International travel becoming compromised by health and safety travesties, it’s time for a road trip. The last days of Summer, Adelaide Fringe, is an ideal destination. If you have time, take the scenic ocean route, otherwise head inland via the flat farmlands, it may be a rather dull journey but there are a couple of gems on the way, including the regional Art Galleries, a pink lake and a puppet shop. 

Ballarat

Ballarat’s Art  Gallery hosts 11,000 works exploring themes such as Country, Place, Home & Disruption.

Established Australian Artist, a Gunditjmara /Yorta man, Josh Muir explores the inner navigation of being an original people within a post Colonial culture. He is an insider and a spectator from both perspectives that would create a quandary, unique to the artists role. It also allows him to quantify insightful concepts.

Salt Lake

The naturally pink lake is a stella stop on the way and a great place for a walk and picnic. The calm rose lake and it’s white shores create a  surreal environment and a nice place to unwind and contemplate.

Puppet shop

Expect the unexpected. After a series of townships that offer the traveller mere basics; bad coffee, fried food and petrol we stumble across the Kaniva Puppet shop! Creative entrepreneurs, find niches and see beyond limitations. The shop and its mini theatre has enhanced the local schools creative agenda.

Fringe Festival

Arriving at ‘The Garden of Unearthly Delights’, in Adelaide for the final week of Fringe Festival.

Comedy in the gardens

The village of semi permanent structures creates a small comic world where audience and actor share the space. Reminiscent of pre-industrial fairs with contemporary flair the buildings are as fascinating as the shows. Cafe/Bars populate under the trees as we sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the last days of summer.

COVID-19’s sinister destruction awaits, like a show in the wings; ending such festivals for a time and half a time.
