Depression: A Muslim Taboo

It consumes you
Engulfs your mind
Your mind becomes captive
Prisoner to the demon clenching to your thoughts
And you know that they know
And you know that they can tell
But shh, don’t talk about it.

You tell them, you try to explain
And soon, they’re picking at your pieces,
cast aside as damaged goods on a clearance rack
This button, that lever,
they say it’s so simple.

Smile, they say
And you try to tell them,
that your face might be stuck in a perpetual state of numb
Smile, is a foreign word,
whose syllables you’ve forgotten how to pronounce.
Get up and live, they say
As if you haven’t yet explained that….you can’t.
That you can’t.
That breaths feel like boulders on your chest,
steps like mountains to climb.
So you say these things,
but you know that they know
And you know that they can tell
But shh, don’t talk about it.

After all, what would you think?

After all, what would you think?
Your uncle, and your aunt’s brother third cousin,
and the random aunty in the masjid.
Your forth cousin twice removed is surely important.
Their opinions clearly matter more than the importance of your ability to speak openly.

So day in, and day out
You wear your mask
You remind yourself, one step, another step, one step.
All the while feeling like they are dragging along.

Because you are flesh
Wound after wound
Plunged deep, far
You are wound
Numb to the pain of daily struggle
Because really, you know that they know
And you know that they can tell
But shh, you must never speak about it.

        With the likes of Christians reverting back to Abrahamic religion who submitted to God.

        Jesus spoke Aramaic ‘Elah’ mean God in his language like Allah in Arabic, “Elli” in Hebrew. Connect the dots..

        Religion that is undefiled is one. It is Jesus in us regardless of a name.
        John 6:63:” It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
        1 Corinthians 2King James Version (KJV) 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
        1 John 4:12. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
        King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Cambridge Edition.

        1 Corinthians 2:8:“Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it,
        they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
        We all want to be righteous, right? A righteous man considers the life of the beast: Proverbs 12:10 KJV Cambridge edition. How can a human be righteous not considering the life of a person? IS people need to see this.
        12 places in KJV says the heart figuratively is to be circumcised not the sexual organs at all. Deuteronomy 30:6, Deuteronomy 10:16; Jeremiah 4:4, Jeremiah 9:26; Colossians 2:11-15; Acts 7:51;Leviticus 26:41;Romans 2:29, Romans 3: 30, ROMANS 2:25. 1611 King James Version of Galatians 6:15:
        For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision,
        but a new creature. Romans: 4:11 “And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:”

        Galatians 6:2 2Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

        fulfilling of the law.
        Luke 20:38“For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.”

        Charity is not what religions teach.
        1 Corinthians 13:4-8Authorized (King Charity suffereth long, and is kind;
        charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 doth not
        behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh
        no evil; 6 rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 beareth all
        things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
        8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;
        whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it
        shall vanish away.
        Colossians 3:14: And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond
        of perfectness.
        Malachi 4:3 – And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under
        the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of
        hosts.
        Malachi 4:1:For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all
        the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that
        cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them
        neither root nor branch
        That is what will become of the wicked after the second resurrection. The wicked will become a flame in the lake of fire burning in God’s light that cannot be extinguished.
        Hebrews 12:29 for our ” God is a consuming

        cc There will be dragons in

        Job 8:3: 3 Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?

        Proverbs 8:8 – All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing
        froward or perverse in them.

        Religions made people think a sexuality name was perverted. People say, you
        pervert, misusing the word, being the person with a perverted tongue.

        Jesus did not have blood in him when he raised up from the dead. He walking
        through solid objects not needing the stone to be rolled away when resurrected.
        He moved through a wall to talk to the disciples in a locked room. Jesus
        raised up because of this: Satan could not put the spirit of Jesus into the
        devils prison.

        1 Peter 3:19: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

        The devil worked through the scribes and Pharisees hoping to be able to do
        that, failing.

        NDE people see that prison thinking it is heaven or Hell.

        Heaven is Jesus in us. We cannot imagine with our sinful minds what God has
        prepared for us that love him and our neighbour as ourselves.

        Hebrews 12:29 for our ” God is a consuming fire.”
        1 John 1:5 – This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare
        unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
        Exodus 33:20:And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man
        see me, and live.
        Malachi 4:3 – And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under
        the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of
        hosts.
        Hell as churches taught is a lie. God can turn his glory off. That is why Moses
        said this: Exodus 33:18: And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

        Jesus does not look like you think.
        Isaiah 53; 2″For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a
        root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see
        him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

        3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with
        grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we
        esteemed him not. 4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows:
        yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.”

        People try and make that as being what happened to Jesus when he was on the way
        to the cross. That is wrong. It was the way Jesus looked all through his life.

        Satan does not look like you think.
        2 Corinthians 11:14: And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
        ◄ Ezekiel 28:13 ► 13Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious
        stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the
        onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold:
        the workmanship of thytabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so:
        thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the
        midst of the stones of fire.
        15Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till
        iniquity was found in thee.

        Satan thought Kill when humanity fell going after helpless stars. That mentality is in ISIS. It is the height of stupidity to want to do what Satan wants to do. Satan does not look like you think. That being is the abomination of desolation.

        Genesis 19:9And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow
        came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with
        thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came
        near to break the door.

        People want to break down the door of the gay.

        Philippians 2:12: 12 – Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
        ISIS people are acting like the Sodomites.

        Faith is waiting. Devils want to know when their end is in God’s light, NOW!
        They are willing to believe lies by people thinking they know the day and hour.
        Jesus works through this sinful body to keep Love works no ill staying in step
        with the spirit that is life not getting side tracked in death like it is all
        too often called for, for certain sexuality names.
        When God is seen as he is seeing the end of death why need faith to wait for them? Faith is not this belief system or that belief system. The Devil who is a colorful bright
        deceiving fallen angel has been playing in the minds of men.

        Leviticus 19:11: Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

        Colossians 3:9-11:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

        Proverbs 26:28:A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

        Proverbs 11:9:An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

        Proverbs 15: 4A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

        Job 8:3: 3 Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?

        Proverbs 8:8 – All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. KJV Cambridge edition.1611 or 1900.

        Leviticus 6:3 – Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and
        sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:

        Leviticus 18:22:Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is
        abomination.”
        Let’s see what is abominable. The verses below will connect with the verses above. Homosexual sex is not seen.

        People against the homosexual are the people who are abominable.Proverbs 15:26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
        Proverbs 12:22 – Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal
        truly [are] his delight. Proverbs 11:20 – They that are of a froward heart
        [are] abomination to the LORD: but [such as are] upright in [their] way [are]
        his delight.
        Proverbs 15:8 – The sacrifice of the wicked [is] an abomination to the LORD:
        but the prayer of the upright [is] his delight.
        Proverbs 24:9 – The thought of foolishness [is] sin: and the scorner [is] an
        abomination to men.
        Proverbs 8:7 – For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an
        abomination to my lips.
        Proverbs 28:9 – He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his
        prayer [shall be] abomination.
        Proverbs, 6: 16 -These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an
        abomination unto him:
        17A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief, 19A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

        The Homosexual is not rushing the door of anyone not needing to be blinded. That is one sexuality name.

        The mind of Christ is in the Homosexual. What they

        say shows this. ◄ Colossians 1:27 ► To whom God would

        make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Philippians 2:

        (KJV) Cambridge edition. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. James 3:17 – 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
        Colossians 3:9: Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
        Leviticus 6:3-13: Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein: Isaiah 59 >>3For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue
        hath muttered perverseness. Proverbs 8:7 – For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips. Proverbs 12:22 – Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight. but they that deal truly are his delight. REV:21:8 – But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
        To lie, liars and those that lieth are despised by God. The Homosexual seeks peace ensuing it. How can the homosexual have an evil spirit? I see them seeking peace having love that is not fake. There would be no lake of fire had there be no lost souls.

      11. Jack The Lad says:

        Matthew 7:21 – 23
        “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

        Your bible even says it, Jesus (Ysa) will say “away from me you are an evildoer” for worshipping him, praying to him, idolising him. He was sent here as a messenger of the father (Allah)

        Matthew 26:39
        ‘He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine’

        He even prayed to allah (the father) like all the prophets did. And who today prays like them? Muslims. Muslims follow Jesus (Ysa) more closer than the Christians themselves. We follow all the prophets from Adam to Muhammad.

        Jesus (Ysa) the messiah will pray with the Muslims (submitters of the father) in the last days with his face on the ground and he will tell those who worship/pray/idolise him to go away from him.
