Emerald Trove, Book 15: Post CXLIII:
Behold, a poem written by Eric in his high school days:
The Bell Tower:
Tall beneath the darker sky;
Ringing forth a clanging cry;
Swinging to and fro on wooden beam;
A priestly way to let off steam.
by Eric Robert Dunstan, as a high school student.
Eric, do you wish to know your calling, how I call you to serve Me in My Church? Yes, O’ Lord, how do I serve Thee? Do exactly as I command thee. And I will lead you to great things. For Eric, not all of My virgin, celibate male saints have served Me in the priesthood. For the priesthood is a calling to which I Am highly selective on who I wish to call.
The priest is called to work with people. But you, lord Azurite, are more suited to working with things. Therefore, remain in your place of employment, where you are a highly valued technology worker. And then you shall be doing My will.
As for the girl Hyacinth, you, as a truly celibate man, have dismissed her from your presence. For you have seen no further purpose to be in her company. Yes, you have made yourself worthy, by that act, of a position to which I wish to anoint you. And this anointing shall be an eternal anointing, for your holiness for this appointment is also eternal.
I hereby anoint you, lord Eric, Azurite King, as eternal monarch of the Northern Kingdom of Christendom. And this Northern Kingdom is defined as written below:
(1) Northern Kingdom of Christendom, ruled forever by Eric, virgin saint and Prophet King. And the lands of his Kingdom include the following lands:
Subkingdom of North America
- Alaska (including all her islands)
- Hawaii (the entire archipelago)
- the Contiguous United States of America
- Saint Pierre and Miquelon
- the Lucayan Archipelago (the Bahama Archipelago)
- Hispaniola (both Haiti and the Dominican Republic)
- Puerto Rico
- The Virgin Islands
Subkingdom of Europe
- the British Isles Archipelago
- the Iberian Peninsula
- the Azores Islands
- the Madeira Islands
- the Canary Islands
- the Balearic Islands
- the Ionian Islands
- the Aegean Islands
- the Balkans
- the Crimean Peninsula
- Central Europe (from Germany and Poland to the Adriatic Sea)
- the Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia)
- Scandinavia (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark)
- the Italian Peninsula (excluding the Vatican City, where reigns the pope)
- the Alpine nations (from Slovenia and Austria to France)
- Benelux countries (Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg)
Subkingdom of Russia and the Caucasus
- European Russia (Russia from the Ural Mountains west)
- the Caucasus region (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia)
- the Russian Far East
Such is the entire definition of the lands given over to Eric to rule forever as eternal virgin Prophet King. And he will have the following languages as official in his Kingdom:
Lord, I have stopped giving to Hyacinth. Instead, I used my paycheck to pay off the last of my credit card debt. Have I done right, or have I done wrong, O’ Lord? Lord Azurite, by what theory are you justified in sharing your wealth and income with this girl? There is no justification for it. For Johnny Cash’s statement, “Because your mine, I walk the line,” does not apply to me, for I recognize no girl as mine anymore.
For I now walk the higher path. And the lower path I no longer walk. I see no justification, therefore, in helping Hyacinth any further. For if I wish to help the poor, much more effectively will my money be put to use by giving to a charity like Food for the Poor. I have found no purpose served in sending money to Hyacinth any further.
Yes, lord Azurite, you are not called to give any further to her. For you are of the First Resurrection. The Second Death has no power over thee. You are no longer concerned about lineages, descendants, races, reproduction, marrying, and having children. For those issues are issues of the past. They do not concern you anymore. I Am the Lord.
But as for that charity, Food for the Poor, you used to give to that charity because they advertised that 95.6% of all their donations, including donated goods, went directly to programs to help the poor. But they were lying, lord Azurite. Only about 66% of their donations made it to the poor. Instead, the CEO of the company was paying himself a very high six figure salary, and diverting huge sums of money from the donations to his own family members, and paying out certain women with whom he was sleeping with. Hence, the ones who set up that company and that run that company have already received their reward.
Hence, if you wish to give to My poor, lord Azurite, search harder for a better company than Food for the Poor. For why should your donated money, intended for the poor, go instead into the paying for the lavish lifestyles of fornicators, who sleep with women and who use the donated money of their charity, intended to feed the poor, to instead pay off these women in order to sleep with them in their ugly sins?
Food for the Poor betrays the poor and serves, rather, as a scam organization, whose CEOs and main employees take the lion’s share of the money coming into their charities to pay themselves. He who gives to Food for the Poor is actually, in reality, giving to some rich man who pays himself profusely from what you give him, and then, as an afterthought, gives some of that pocket change he receives to help a few poor people, with trumpet blasts and great publicity for all to see his works.
Hence, as for Food for the Poor, do not give to them anymore. Instead, I will show you the correct and good charity to which you are to give, and who truly give to My poor. For a true charity that truly serves Me and My poor is run by the poor, not by the rich. If a rich man is running a charity, realize that he has made himself the prime recipient of the funds of that charity. Hence, do not give to charities run by the rich. For they are all scams, run by rich men who sleep with women, and who are filthy and unfaithful stewards of the money they manage. Instead, they are like Judas Iscariot, who speaks of helping the poor, but who in reality, being in charge of the treasury, helps himself to it and steals from its contributions. (John 12:4-6).
Lord, the life you have given me to live, how am I to use this life to serve Thee? Should I start a charity that helps the poor? Or how do I serve Thee, O’ Lord? For I am not satisfied if all I am doing is working and making money. I need to be doing something directly for Your people. I need to be providing a service to You. I need a way to serve and to do good for other human beings. How do you call me to conduct this service unto Thee, O’ Lord?
Many people, lord Azurite, with good intentions, do in fact start movements and charities, but most of these easily become corrupted by the flow of free money. And they begin to help themselves to it. And they become fat on this money, while those whom they allegedly made themselves servants to starve. For most people out there who ask for donations to help the poor are really helping themselves. Very few charitable organizations actually use the money they receive to help anyone that they claim to serve in any significant way. Rather, they are too busy helping themselves. For money has that way of corrupting men and women who start out with good intentions.
You cannot become rich in helping My poor, or else you are not really helping them. Instead, you are helping yourself. And whatever such a person does for the poor then is just an afterthought, and nothing more. If Bill Gates wishes to help the poor, then let him become poor himself in the process of helping them, and then I will acknowledge him as one who truly helps them. But if he remains a rich man and continues to live in his mansions, I will reject him as one who helps anyone but himself. I Am the Lord. For it is harder for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of heaven than it is for a camel to pass through the eye of needle. (Mathew 19:24 & Mark 10:25).
For the man who depends on God will be provided for. But the rich man depends on his riches. He cannot depend on God, for he has chosen riches over God. Only by giving up his riches, can a rich man come to depend on God alone. Such was the reason why Jesus said to the rich man who sought eternal life that he must give up his riches to the poor, and that then he would have treasure in heaven and then he would be able to follow Him and inherit eternal life. (Matthew 19:16-30 & Mark 10:17-31 & Luke 18:18-30). For only by giving up your riches can you learn to depend on God for all your sustenance. Hence, only the poor are capable of following Christ Jesus. The rich cannot follow Him. For it is an impossibility for a rich man to follow Jesus except by becoming poor. I Am the Lord.
That is why, O’ Lord, I have kept this website, emeralogy.com, totally free from money. I have no way for anyone who visits here to donate to me. And I collect no donations to run this website. I am the one who runs it. And I am the one who pays for all its expenses. And I am the technical person who takes care of all of its web design, and so on. And I do not have any ads here. I do not mix any form of money making with the presentation of Your Word, O’ Lord, on this website.
Good, lord Azurite. Then you should know that the reward you shall receive for your works done here you shall receive as part of your eternal reward in heaven. For I, too, Am pleased with the works you do here. For these works you do here serve Me. That not many people yet know of your website, let it be. For were many to know of it and it become popular now while you are writing here, that could become a source of pride for you. And then you would not be serving Me here, but rather, you would be serving your own ego. I Who Am have spoken.
For pride, too, is the enemy of many who make themselves leaders in serving My causes. For the rise to fame and glory in this world leads many to think that their good works come from them, rather than from God. And they begin to make themselves into a kind of god, seeking the worship from others. Hence, the best man who serves Me is one who serves Me in secret, doing his works not to be seen. I will lead you, lord Azurite, in becoming such a man. You I will make a secret servant to Me. And then your reward in heaven shall be great.
Hence, I will not make you a great and renowned man set up for all to marvel and adore. Rather, as you have requested of Me, I will make you truly My servant. And My true servant is one who serves Me in secrecy. For My true servant does not do things seeking the praise of others. Rather, My true servant serves Me, doing My works without being seen by others doing them. That man at your Church, whose name is Todd, who is an engineer and an expert on sound systems, he serves My Church by keeping the sound systems working perfectly, and he does this work without receiving any compensation whatsoever, and he does this work humbly, doing his part to serve My Church without making his services known to the people. Such is how you shall serve Me and My Church. But you shall serve My Church using the talents and skills that you possess.
And what are the talents and skills that you possess, lord Azurite? You are expert at setting up commercial websites and in running servers and in managing computing systems. Hence, when you go to Mass today, go to Father Dave Heney, your pastor, and tell him that you wish to do volunteer services for the Church, and tell him of your skills and where you work and what you do. You will find, lord Azurite, that he has need of such skilled and talented workers as you, and who are willing to do such work for the Church without receiving any compensation. I Am the Lord. And then you will be serving Me and doing My works. I Who Am have spoken.
Lord, I will do exactly that. I will volunteer my services to the priest. And I will tell him of all things I can do and have done in the software industry. Good, lord Azurite. You shall serve My Church well. And you have the necessary humility and charity to do so. For not every man is called to serve Me as My priest. But every man is nevertheless called to serve. This now brings this post to its conclusion. You have ended helping Hyacinth, for doing so was not truly serving Me and My causes. Now you shall be made truly My servant. And now that your celibacy has been perfected, I can place you in this position without fear that you would fall to the temptation of a woman. For you are of the Way that is above. You have chosen that Way. And you shall not walk any longer the way that is below. Amen.
Now, publish this post, lord Azurite, For it is complete. Amen.
