A.V.A.L.O.N. Ministry: The Advent of Victorious Angels Loving Our Neighbors!!

There is an age old story all over our cultures, all over the world. The Native Americans call it the Tale of 2 Wolves. It goes like this:

An old Cherokee told his grandson:

“My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

“One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

“The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

This hits home with me right now... I have 2 sons, and they have a fantasy in their heads that they are wolves... lol if you know us yall know that family joke! Think of this in terms of a parent, whose two sons are fighting, and both have valid points, and both "right", and both are wrong... that is where my story differs, they are both right in their own stories and reasons, and what they both forgot, was love, and forgiveness, and "it's not about me, it's about them" attitude... both are only seeing their own fairy tale, because that is natural and normal, and one has been taught to love, catch and be there to guide, but forgets that the other must find his path just like he did... and God is watching each of us... we are both His children, and to ask your parents to choose a favorite, and if you have ever delved this subject with your parents, or your children, you know the conflict in you as a parent... Just like Jacob and Esau were brothers, going back further in the tales, Ismael and Isaac were brothers, now God had a plan to send Ishmail's mother out into the wilderness and save him, so do you think the story ended there? Come on.... maybe, just maybe, those stories were important the the Father a s well... The Kingdom of Heaven is within, and within is where the battle of Armageddon rages(LOL, a little wordplay, because my chronic arm pain is pounding today, if I sleep on it wrong, I wake up in my own personal "Armageddon", LOL ;, hahah, OK, just kidding) )... we are all looking up when we should be ashamed that we know that He is within, look only into your brother's eyes to see Christ(Jesus/Yeshua), If you, "YesYou" are not shining His light from your eyes to a brothers, how will expect to see your "your" light shine in his... so within each of us, this battle of good 2 brothers rages, which one will you feed... Love, Compassion, and Light/ or anger, bitterness and revenge, which is such a strong emotion, it will surely weigh you down, and send you to the end of the line... I leave you with this little piece of peace... do you have those ears, today? just sayin
