What is the Mind but a Window?

What is the Mind but a Window?

Dedicated to the late Shel Silverstein, one of my kids' favorite poets (mine too.) Here is Shel's poem, Perfect High in it's entirety:

Perfect High
or the Quest for Gimmesome Roy
by Shel Silverstein

There once was a boy named Gimmesome Roy. He was nothing like me or you.
'Cause laying back and getting high was all he cared to do.
As a kid, he sat in the cellar, sniffing airplane glue.
And then he smoked bananas -- which was then the thing to do.
He tried aspirin in Coca-Cola, breathed helium on the sly,
And his life was just one endless search to find that perfect high.
But grass just made him want to lay back and eat chocolate-chip pizza all night,
And the great things he wrote while he was stoned looked like shit in the morning light.
And speed just made him rap all day, reds just laid him back,
And Cocaine Rose was sweet to his nose, but the price nearly broke his back.
He tried PCP and THC, but they didn't quite do the trick,
And poppers nearly blew his heart and mushrooms made him sick.
Acid made him see the light, but he couldn't remember it long.
And hashish was just a little too weak, and smack was a lot too strong,
And Quaaludes made him stumble, and booze just made him cry,
Till he heard of a cat named Baba Fats who knew of the perfect high.

Now, Baba Fats was a hermit cat who lived up in Nepal,
High on a craggy mountaintop, up a sheer and icy wall.
"But hell," says Roy, "I'm a healthy boy, and I'll crawl or climb or fly,
But I'll find that guru who'll give me the clue as to what's the perfect high."
So out and off goes Gimmesome Roy to the land that knows no time,
Up a trail no man could conquer to a cliff no man could climb.
For fourteen years he tries that cliff, then back down again he slides
Then sits -- and cries -- and climbs again, pursuing the perfect high.
He's grinding his teeth, he's coughing blood, he's aching and shaking and weak,
As starving and sore and bleeding and tore, he reaches the mountain peak.
And his eyes blink red like a snow-blind wolf, and he snarls the snarl of a rat,
As there in perfect repose and wearing no clothes -- sits the godlike Baba Fats.

"What's happening, Fats?" says Roy with joy, "I've come to state my biz.
I hear you're hip to the perfect trip. Please tell me what it is.
For you can see," says Roy to he, "that I'm about to die,
So for my last ride, Fats, how can I achieve the perfect high?"
"Well, dog my cats!" says Baba Fats. "here's one more burnt-out soul,
Who's looking for some alchemist to turn his trip to gold.
But you won't find it in no dealer's stash, or on no druggist's shelf.
Son, if you would seek the perfect high -- find it in yourself."
"Why, you jive motherfucker!" screamed Gimmesome Roy, "I've climbed through rain and sleet,
I've lost three fingers off my hands and four toes off my feet!
I've braved the lair of the polar bear and tasted the maggot's kiss.
Now, you tell me the high is in myself. What kind of shit is this?
My ears 'fore they froze off," says Roy, "had heard all kind of crap,
But I didn't climb for fourteen years to listen to that sophomore rap.
And I didn't crawl up here to hear that the high is on the natch,
So you tell me where the real stuff is or I'll kill your guru ass!"

"Ok, OK," says Baba Fats, "you're forcing it out of me.
There is a land beyond the sun that's known as Zaboli.
A wretched land of stone and sand where snakes and buzzards scream,
And in this devil's garden blooms the mystic Tzu-Tzu tree.
And every ten years it blooms one flower as white as the Key West sky,
And he who eats of the Tzu-Tzu flower will know the perfect high.
For the rush comes on like a tidal wave and it hits like the blazing sun.
And the high, it lasts a lifetime and the down don't ever come.
But the Zaboli land is ruled by a giant who stands twelve cubits high.
With eyes of red in his hundred heads, he waits for the passers-by.
And you must slay the red-eyed giant, and swim the River of Slime,
Where the mucous beasts, they wait to feast on those who journey by.
And if you survive the giant and the beasts and swim that slimy sea,
There's a blood-drinking witch who sharpens her teeth as she guards that Tzu-Tzu tree."

"To hell with your witches and giants," laughs Roy. "To hell with the beasts of the sea.
As long as the Tzu-Tzu flower blooms, some hope still blooms for me."
And with tears of joy in his snow-blind eye, Roy hands the guru a five,
Then back down the icy mountain he crawls, pursuing that perfect high.

"Well, that is that," says Baba Fats, sitting back down on his stone,
Facing another thousand years of talking to God alone.
"It seems, Lord", says Fats, "it's always the same, old men or bright-eyed youth,
It's always easier to sell them some shit than it is to give

Tithes and Offerings

Tithe and offering

God is a covenant keeping God. He has made provision for everything that we need (physically, mentally and financially) and that He has called each of us to do on this earth. There are many fine books on tithes and offerings so I am just going to touch on the highlights.

Why do we teach on tithes and offerings? It is because God loves you and is concerned about your financial health. He has made covenantal provision for you and if we obey His commands, we can expect His blessing and provision (Deuteronomy 26-28) and in my opinion it is a form of spiritual warfare for as we submit ourselves to God we resist the devil (James 4:7). We establish the rule and the reign of the king in our lives for He gives us power to get wealth in order to establish His covenant (Deuteronomy 8:18).

The tithe was instituted before the law.

Tithe literally means “tenth.” We find that in Genesis 14 the tithe was instituted by Abram right after he had defeated an enemy and recovered his stolen family and goods. He met Melchizedek the priest of God Most High and he worshipped the Lord with his tithe after the victory.

Genesis 14:18-20 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. 19 And he blessed him and said: "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; 20 And blessed be God Most High,

Who has delivered your enemies into your hand." And he gave him a tithe of all. NKJV

The tithe is for the support of the Levites, widows, the fatherless and the poor.

Numbers 18:21 "Behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tithes in Israel as an inheritance in return for the work which they perform, the work of the tabernacle of meeting. NKJV

The tithe is also for the fatherless, the widow and the poor and you should take your tithes and offerings and offer them in the “place the Lord your God chooses.” You shall make sure that you do not forsake the Levite. (Leviticus 27:30-32, Numbers 18:26 , Deuteronomy 14:22-28, Deuteronomy 26:8-15)

Who are the Levites today? Or, what were the Levites a type of?

Numbers 8:19 And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and his sons from among the children of Israel, to do the work for the children of Israel in the tabernacle of meeting, and to make atonement for the children of Israel, that there be no plague among the children of Israel when the children of Israel come near the sanctuary." NKJV (Numbers 18:24 , Numbers 3:9, Numbers 18:6)

The Aaron and his sons served in the Aaronic Priesthood. They had the privilege of ministering before the Lord personally. The sons of Levi were given as a gift to assist them in their service. Today, the blood of Jesus gives every believer the right to go before God’s throne personally. We can all minister and go before the Lord as the sons of Aaron. So who was given as a gift to assist individual believers today?

Who are the Levites a type of? They are a type of the five fold ministry.

Eph 4:8-14 Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive,

And gave gifts to men." ….. 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, ….NKJV

What else does the Bible say about tithes?

Malachi 3:8-11 "Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say,

'In what way have we robbed You?' In tithes and offerings. 9 You are cursed with a curse,

For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation. 10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,"

Says the LORD of hosts, "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven

And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. 11 "And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field," Says the LORD of hosts; NKJV

When the New King James says “try me” it can also be translated “test me.” It is the only place in the Bible that I know of that God says to test Him and see if He is not faithful. I can tell you that personally, my wife and I have been in dire financial straights. In one case we ended up in a very challenging financial position in the ministry. The income stopped while the out go just seemed to multiply. In fact, I have no doubt that many people would have filed bankruptcy with as much as we owed. Yet, we did not believe that bankruptcy was the honorable thing to do.

During that whole time, we never stopped giving tithes and offerings and we can testify that even though at times we were without a home, we always managed to pay our bills on time. It was important to us that we maintain a good testimony for the unbeliever and for us that meant mee
