Heart-touching songs are a key that unlock a gate; and behind that gate is a reservoir of many tears; and the people must cry those tears; till they become a lowly river meandering meekly through a valley of many lilies toward the rose of Sharon mentioned in Song of Songs 2:1, 2 in The Holy Scriptures.
Now, about the following writing. It is long; and many will say, “O geeze! I’m not going to read all that.” Well, imagine that you have just been born; and, somehow, someone is able to whisper in your newborn ear: “Hey little buddy. You’re going to live 100 years.” Would you just turn away and say in your newborn heart, “O my God! That is just too long. I don’t want to do it.”?

We Shall Overcome
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person – though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die – but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.” -Romans 5:1-11. ESV Study Bible.
We Shall Overcome – Peter Yarrow
Have They No Fear of the Living God?
Have they not God’s love in their hearts?
Have they not God’s Light in their understanding?
Have they not God’s Holy Spirit?
1 John 4:8; 1 John 1:5; 1 John 4:2; John 4:24; Hebrews 9:14. ESV.
As it is written:
“What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, as it is written:
‘None is righteous, no, not one;
No one understands;
No one seeks for God.
All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
No one does good,
Not even one.’
“Their throat is an open grave;
They use their tongues to deceive.
The venom of asps is under their lips.
Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.
Their feet are swift to shed blood;
In their paths are ruin and misery,
And the way of peace they have not known.
There is no fear of God before their eyes.
“Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God.
“For by the works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.
“But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it – the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Jesus Christ, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
“Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one – who will justify the circumcision by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.” -Romans 3:9-31. ESV Study Bible.
we shall overcome [song for human being ] Original Music Pete Seeger Rearranged by Manmohan Panda
Concerning the egregiously unmerciful fire alarm testing at John F. Kennedy Manor that has been going on for at least the 14 years this resident has been living here. There is always a right way and a wrong way to do anything and everything. The fire alarm tests are being done the wrong way – brutally wrong – as in over-kill.
On November 22nd, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated – and now the elderly who are living in a building named after John F. Kennedy are being persecuted and tormented in 2022. And for about 2 years running now, there has been a serious trash/recyclables mess going on at the back entrance of our residence. Just wondering if there is a cause-and-effect relationship happening here between the abusive fire alarm tests and the over-flowing trash containers.
Have they not the courage and the character to stand up to and refuse to be a party to the obnoxious and psychologically torturous and tormenting way the residents of John F. Kennedy Manor are being abused by the pretentious and too frequent and too loud and too repetitive so-called fire alarm tests that drive the elderly residents out of their homes during a heat wave as we try to avoid going mad from those unnecessarily obnoxious tests? Can they not say: “No! We are not going to treat the residents of John F. Kennedy Manor in this obnoxious way any longer!” It is written: “As you sow so shall you reap.” We don’t want to reap such abusive treatment – so we will not do this to anyone any longer!

“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.” -Titus 2:11-15. ESV Study Bible.
The same evil that drove the Nazis to cause World War 2 and to torture and gas to death millions of Jews; the same evil that drives Russia to unmercifully attack and attempt in vain to destroy their own neighbor country of Ukraine; the same evil that drives the cruel murdering of America’s unborn children by the multi-millions over a period of decades [and without even a merciful anesthetic]; the same evil that has legalized the corrupt corporate global state of Babylon the great harlot; the same evil that has removed public prayer to True God in the public school system for many decades – depriving students of the blessed sense that we are all children of One True God of heaven and earth; the same evil that has caused the richest country on earth to be $30 trillion dollars in debt — while they support the continued enrichment of the few and the powerful corporations and their industries polluting the earth’s air and seas and fresh water — and the pollution of society and mankind’s morals [legalizing lotteries, gambling casinos, sports betting] — is also at work here at John F. Kennedy Manor — and at work throughout the whole world that lies in wickedness and is under the influence of the god of this age – the devil – the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning. See John 8
“Who then is the faithful and wise servant whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” -Matthew 24:45-51. ESV Study Bible.
“Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,
“Awake, O sleeper,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.”
“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” -Ephesians 5:7-17. ESV Study Bible.

It is written that Jesus said to the hypocrites:
“You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell? Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, so that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of innocent Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. Truly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.” -Matthew 23:33-36. ESV Study Bible.

God bless those responsible – may they be called by the Father to repent and believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Why perish in unrighteousness . . .
When you can be saved by the grace of True God through faith in His only begotten Son Who has risen from the dead –never to die again — and Who IS
Lord over all . . .
And Who IS Coming Again as Lord of lords and King of kings to rule over all the nations?
FAITH is the VICTORY that Overcomes the World!
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.” -Hebrews 11:1-3. ESV.
Incidentally, we understand from Hebrews 11:1-3 that the theory of evolution is false — because the word of God tells us here that Creation does not come from visible matter.
“And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets – who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. Women received back their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life. Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the sword. Thye went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated – of whom the world was not worthy – wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
“And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
“Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons?
“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
Nor be weary when reproved by him.
For the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
And chastises every son whom he receives.”
“It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as it seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness. For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” -Hebrews 11:32-12:11. ESV Study Bible.

“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But there are some of you who do not believe. (For Jesus knew from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.) And he said, ‘This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.’” -John 6:63-65 ESV Study Bible.
It is written:
“And I said to the angel who talked with me, ‘What are these, my lord?’ Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, ‘Do you not know what these are?’ I said, ‘No, my lord.’ Then he said to me, ‘This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward the top stone amid shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!’ ” -Zechariah 4:4-7. ESV Study Bible.
It is written:
“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
“If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.” -Galatians 5:16-26. ESV Study Bible.

“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? For we know him who said, ‘Vengeance is mine; I will repay.’ And again, ‘The Lord will judge his people.’ It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” -Hebrews 10:26-31. ESV Study Bible.
“When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, ‘Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.” -Revelation 1:17, 18. ESV Study Bible.
