Still On The Robin Hood Kick

Is Robin Hood a criminal or a hero?

Robin Hood is both. Translation= Robin Hood would have made a true America Hero.

He is a criminal in the eyes of the corrupted rulers of his time.

He is a hero to the town folk and the public, for distributing what should be theirs.

It can be agreed a hero is someone who regards and protects the people. It can be agreed a criminal is someone who works outside or against the set law.

It can then be agreed Robin Hood is someone who regards and protects the people, but does so in a way outside or against the set law.

A criminal is someone has committed a crime, however not all laws are moral or just. For example, the Holocaust was an official government program as was Apartheid.

Robin Hood stole from the wealthy because they gained their money unfairly because of their positions in the government. They got to keep their money because of tax exemptions, but the only way to keep the country running without removing those was to increase taxation on middle-to-lower class to outrageous levels.

By doing this Robin Hood broke the law and therefore became a criminal. Robin Hood did however become a hero of the citizens because he returned money that should have been theirs to begin with.

We need more Robin Hood-like minded people stepping up!

Speaking of Floods

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.” ( Genesis 6:8 )

The word “grace” can be seen the first time in the King James Bible in the Old Testament- Genesis 6:8.

Noah, like many of us today, living among the most heinous evil society that world known up to that point, but Noah found grace. God favored him with His intentions about how He was going to destroy the earth- His just judgment how he would be saved and a part of new beginnings on earth.

Genesis 6:8 shows us Noah’s character. “Found” is a simple actionable verb, not a passive one. Noah found favor—grace—in God’s eyes because he was actively looking for it.

Similarly, Adam found no helpmate from among the animals that was suitable for him (Genesis 2:20), and Noah’s dove did not find rest for the sole of her foot (Genesis 8:9). Laban did not find his household images that Rachel had stolen and hidden (Genesis 31:35), and Hilkiah the priest found a book of the law of the Lord given by Moses.

(Ref. 2 Chronicles 34:14-15). God could have used a passive verb as He did in reference to Noah, but He didn’t.

What can we learn from this great man of God?

God intended for us to learn from those of ancients, and most of all, God’s record of events about them:

Rom 15:4 “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”

Noah’s life was righteous—in spite of the horrible condition of mankind’s hearts and deeds in the world of his day. He was looking for God’s direction and for the answers to his heart’s quest/questions.

Noah wasn’t just hanging around waiting for the inevitable destruction the flood of water, the judgment that he knew was coming as a result of the awful rebellion and perverted sin that surrounded him. Noah was anticipating a response from God—and when God gave him instruction, Noah “found” the favor that he sought!

Recipient of Grace

Many centuries later, God warned Ezekiel of future judgment that would happen to the land of Israel because of its wickedness. God identified three men—Noah, Daniel, and Job—as examples of the best “righteous” men in history (Ezekiel 14:14, 20). If that comparison has any meaning, Noah was much more than a mere chance recipient of God’s grace.

Job:

Job was “His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.” (Job 1:3).

Job’s livestock resources were enormous. That certainly meant that he was a successful breeder of animals as well as a possible trader/ broker and possibly a source for prized stock. He had a large house/household and land—so much so that “bands” from nearby nations were in want to destroy his wealth.

God had labeled Job “And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” (Job 1:8). Job was much more than a “nice guy.” He was probably the wealthiest man of his day, and yet he was of such godly character, mind, and heart that God pointed him out him to satan, showing him that men were more dedicated to God and goodness than evil in spite of Job’s wealth, Job stood the test of time and satan looked like a fool- and a fool he is!!

Daniel was one of the king’s descendants and nobles from Judah taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 1:3). The account of Daniel and his three godly friends is well known among most Christians, but the experiences of Daniel often overshadow the long life that he led as the leader of the “learned men” of that day. He was commissioned as a “great man” by Nebuchadnezzar and “sat in the gate of the king” (Daniel 2:48-49). Daniel served in some form of senior advisory position for six kings over some 70 years. Not bad for a captive!

God said of Daniel as a “man greatly beloved” (Daniel 10:11). He was privileged to have unusual spiritual insight given to him from God, which he could have used to his personal advantage. But he always made it clear that he was gifted by God’s grace—to whom he always gave credit. Furthermore, God used Daniel to record several of the most remarkable prophecies in all of Scripture. Students of the Bible still discuss the book of Daniel. He was a significant person indeed!

If the comparisons of the righteous men listed in Ezekiel 14 are to be genuine comparisons, Noah must have been a person of significance in his region—if not well known throughout the world of his day. He clearly possessed or had access to the resources and skills needed to accomplish the monumental task that was assigned to him.

The pre-Flood civilization was certainly advanced enough for such an enterprise. The evolutionary cloud has mesmerized most of the world into relegating the “ancient” world into some sort of pre-human existence—living in caves and grass huts with animal skins for clothing; and not much more than that.

The Bible paints a much different picture! There were cities during Noah’s day, as well as developed technology that included metallurgy and the skills to build musical instruments (Genesis 4:17-22). Somebody had to construct the habitations for the growing population, and someone had to coordinate the distribution and development of those manufacturing places that produced the products needed by that society.

The world of Noah was very wicked, but it functioned with much the same needs as our current world. When the Lord Jesus wanted to emphasize the suddenness of the destruction in the coming end-times judgment, He did it by drawing a comparison with the “ordinary” life of the populations around Noah.

And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.” (Luke 17:26-27)

Noah found grace, Noah was fully dedicated to the work of God during his life.

Walked with God

The Bible says that Noah was one of only two men in all of history who “walked with God” (Genesis 6:9). The other is Enoch, who may be more well known since he was taken by God’s and was found no more (Genesis 5:24). Efforts by some to portray Noah as a bumbling, drunken hypocrite are simply not true. God’s commentary is that Noah was “just” and “perfect” (upright, without blemish). The Creator entrusted him with a monumental task that is unique in all of history.

Noah was “just.” That simply means that he was known for his equitable dealings with others, fair and moral. Even in the wicked world that disgusted the Creator, Noah was “justified” in his ways, deeds, thoughts and character- Behaved righteously before God (Genesis 7:1).

Noah was “perfect.” That precious reputation, at least from God’s perspective, means that he was a man without condemnation. His “just” dealings resulted in a “blameless” record. Whatever the wicked people of his day may have said behind his back, they knew that Noah was above reproach. Just as folks today often resort to rumor-mongering and distortion of facts to cover their own guilt or boredom, those around Noah no doubt employed some of the same practices to discredit righteous Noah. He may well have had that kind of treatment, but God saw that he was “perfect.”

Preacher of Righteousness

Peter called Noah a “preacher of righteousness” (2 Peter 2:5). Think of what that means in the context of Genesis 6! The whole earth was “filled with violence” and “every heart” only thought of evil. The social condition (as is today) must have been a real mess. Yet Noah had the guts to stand up publically for the righteous and moral behavior that just about everyone else openly and loudly rejected.

Maybe his extended family and friends were under his influence, but by the time the judgment of God fell, only Noah, his wife, and three of their sons and their wives were willing to follow his leadership into the Ark. Many would consider a ministry with such results a failure today, and yet God insisted that Noah’s “…became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.” (Hebrews 11:7)!

We are not told in Scripture what Noah preached about. Enoch (the other man who walked with God) preached about the return of the Lord in judgment (Jude 1:14-15). Noah may well have preached about the coming judgment of the Flood and the desperate need of the world’s people to turn back to their Creator God for salvation. Whatever he may have preached and however he implemented his heart’s desire, Noah was labeled a “preacher of righteousness” by the only Judge that ultimately counts.

God’s grace is always available. It is not hidden from anyone. But it must be “found” by God’s servants as we “come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).

Credit: in most part to Henry M.

In analysis of parts of this write-up, it’s clear about three things: one, We need mercy. Two, we need to find grace in the Lord Jesus; cry out to God and ask for forgiveness. And three, judgments and apocalyptic-style scenarios are happening all around the world. Some judgments are being implemented and it’s time that we seek God’s grace and/ or remember the Lord for His grace and mercy being administered in our lives. The end is not yet; you have time, but don’t wait too long- NOW is the time!. -Moraldiplomat

Luke 21:9 “But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.”

Luke 21:25 “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;…..”

More terrible days are ahead for earth; it’s time to repent, trust God to get us through them and by His grace, avoid some (if not all of them) of them (days).

Robbing Hood “Take-aways”

When I was a kid I thought it was actually “Robbing” Hood because he was known for robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. There’s more to the story though than just a bandit with a big heart. It’s a story of adventure, daring, and courage. It’s the story of a highly skilled archer who rises from commoner to hero.

Robin ends up quite the rebel rouser and proves himself a highly capable leader, even beyond his band of merry men, when he inspires everybody to fight for their home and land and protect from the French invasion.

Here are my three take aways:

Never give up. On the hilt of a sword are the following words: “Rise, and rise again. Until lambs become lions.” Simply put, when you get knocked down, get up again. And again. You’ll grow stronger in the process.

You can change your lot in life. You can rise above your station. Just because you aren’t born to land or position, doesn’t mean you can’t become the person who can have those. You don’t have to be a natural born leader — you can become one.

Shared values bring people together. Whether it’s a common threat or a common goal, it creates a common bond. In this case, there was a common threat, both the invasion and the evil doers leading up to it. Robin had “right” on his side, and he created a common goal around defending their land.

If I were to add another take away, I would say it pays to be skilled. Shooting arrows with precision through obstacles and over a distance, makes for some memorable movie scenes.

Where The Birds Hang Out (Poem)

*This poem is dedicated to those that struggle, for family, to those who are confused; and to me: for a sister that has left me, friends I’ve lost, a mother that has forsaken me, and a father I miss dearly, my wife I cherish, and wisdom of all I hold onto. A man once said, ‘that if you don’t feel close to God anymore, it wasn’t Him Who moved.’

A Day of comfort is near; and if you read this and are worthy, then peace I bid to you. The world has dark corners, but light makes our shadows invisible; find Light again and open the door. I hear a knock ! I opened the door and alone no more. -Moraldiplomat

Where The Birds Hang Out (Poem)

Morning rise, boats can be seen; aloft the silky waves a morning serene,
Sand fills the earth, cresting the water’s shore as if they meet to open a new door.

Ripples of torrent water flow to the edge; an ocean of sea, depths of dredge,
Captivating to a few and yet this parcel for all stands stout.

This truly is a place where the birds hang out.

We all cannot fly, but swim it seems; we are carried to the heights by our hopes and dreams,

For the Lord Himself gives us a taste- we must glimpse, this too, leaving nothing to waste.

Brisk walking travelers go with delight as birds determined but not for flight;
Rods are raise and lines are thrown, and in patience we snag a meal condoned.

White caps from blue fields lunge at the new door of sand as cool and warm breezes fill the land.

Morning now turns to even; sense of peace and no more tears, for this land forbids evil to ever live here.

Water below, water high above. A mirrored image of what is and what was,
Gazing at the horizon- Earth move never not. Acknowledging the truth many have not sought,

Now floating above the water as we pass through the closing door, waiting, wadding for wet hills of righteousness to lift us up and out…

For truly, this is a coast where the birds hang out.’

Not All Outlaws Are Bad

All outlaws were not necessarily bad men. Many were victims of a corrupt law system (similar to the one here in the U.S.), some were honest rebels against the regal status quo (politicians and their deputies of law), others were simply in the way or social outcasts (non-rich or lovers of God rather than money).

Medieval people were all firm believers in God and prayed to for deliverance and support; this would provide a degree of comfort during periods of pain or lonely isolation.

In addition to the tangible requirements for survival stated in previous posts regarding lessons from Robin Hood, there is the less tangible but most important requirement of sheer willpower if you don’t think you can survive you probably won’t survive.

The psychological effect of living outdoors for a long time on a knife-edge would wear down an outlaw’s ability to think and plan; he would be unable to react rationally to an immediate or sudden threat and any ill-considered action – or sheer panic – would sink him deeper and deeper into trouble. He would become as wild as the environment, cease to be fully human and eventually succumb.

An old survival adage from the North American Fur Trade years 1750-1840 is: Where one man can survive, two men can fare well : certainly numbers would permit support and a delegation of tasks but would also require more food from a selected catchment area(s).

In the medieval forest world there are no doctors, dentists, supermarkets, clothing outlets, friendly policemen, fast-food chains or charity shops.

To survive in the medieval forest to become like Robin Hood, one must take into account that it isn’t just about survival – you must adapt, improvise but above all overcome; take precautions, make preparations and plan ahead.

Only then will it cease to be simple survival and become a way of life but to endure the long term, you really must learn to stop roughing it, settle in, know your stuff, develop a routine, then learn to like it and want to be there. Only then do you become part of it all. And above all, count on God to supply all your needs wherever you find yourself.

“If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.” Psalm 139:8

The Fire Drill

*Still in the Sherwood Forest……?

January in Sherwood Forest was known as ‘Wolf-Month’ for a very good reason; wolf packs driven by snow or cold to shelter in the woodlands in the same way as the outlaws would become a serious threat; the wolves natural food was scarce at that time and starving animals were known to overcome their natural fear of man and enter nearby villages in an attempt to carry off livestock and on more than a few occasions even small children – grown men and horses passing through Sherwood in the medieval period are recorded as having been attacked by wolves, a wintertime hazard that remained until the 14th Century.

In one medieval example, a wolf leaped out on a horse and rider, bit off a piece of horse-rump and fled into the forest with the reeking piece of flesh before the rider realized what had happened. A small child was carried off from Linby by a wolf in the early 12th Century.

Even an armed man on foot would become a hunted quarry and possibly have to face a desperate and terrifying foe suited to the environment and equipped with deadly weapons designed for face-to-face close-combat.

A wonderful morale-booster, fires frighten animals and give off warmth and light and you can then heat your water and cook your food using it, adding a civilized aspect to living rather than just simply surviving outdoors and is what makes most folk today remember as a comfortable camp under canvas or the stars from a past outdoor experience.

Fire can be made using natural materials and is not as hard to create this way as you think if you simply have a go and practice; an everyday task which would be as natural and easy to a medieval person as tying shoelaces or switching on an electric light would be to a modern city-dweller.

Medieval people often carried flint and steel but could also recognize the correct materials for ‘making fire by rubbing two sticks together’ at a glance. This method generally falls into two categories – the fire plough or the fire drill.

P.S. We have many survival advantages Robin Hood and his Merry Men did not have. They lived before matches and other modern fire starters.

Fortunately, we live in an age when we can start a fire whenever and wherever we want.(VIDEO LINK)

The Rich Elite

Congress passed the Federal Conscription Law, creating the Draft . Wealthy men could buy substitutes (poor immigrants) for They were called, 300 Dollar Men It’s a rich man’s war, but a poor man’s fight.

The Confederacy -the eleven states which tried to break away from the United States to form their own nation during the American Civil War- was dominated in thoughts and actions by its slave owning elite.

Though only a minority of Southern whites owned slaves (the rich; as are to this day-ONLY the rich have…employ servants), a disproportionate number of Southern politicians owned slaves. Their political actions were of course influenced by their stake in the perpetuation and expansion into new territories of slavery and trade.

The white population heard and read a lot of rhetoric often obscuring this fact, and went to war for many different reasons the same reasons are similar today. During the war, however, they quickly came to the realization they were mainly fighting for the interests of their rich neighbors; yeah the one’s with slaves.

The cry ‘A rich man’s war and a poor man’s fight’ became common. Especially after the new slave holding nation passed a law saying you didn’t have to fight if you happened to have 20 slaves back home.

It turned out the elite moved their poorer neighbors into the abyss and weren’t willing to pay the price to get them back out of it. In the end, around 258,000 people died for the perpetuation of a system that benefited only a tiny, fabulously wealthy elite;remember them, the one’s with the slaves.

So always ask yourself when something major happens: Cui Bono? Who benefits? In ANY war, with any variant of this is: Follow the Money. Why does the American political system spew forth pathologically lying demagogues? Cui bono? Who benefits?

Chances are it won’t be the unemployed;lovers of freedom, the working poor or the debt-ridden students…
