Some of my own views are auto-browser counted (but not on my browser at home. Only RevolverMaps doesn't have a way to not count my own views, as far as I know.).

And I wonder why more people don't like my Facebook page. I'm not asking only those who agree with my views to "Like" my page. I'm just asking for haters, spammers, etc. to not "Like" my page. Many of the people who "Like" my page and are Facebook Friends with me, follow me on Twitter, and subscribe to and are Friends with me on YouTube disagree with at least quite a few of my views.

Can We End Hunger and Poverty? Not In This Lifetime...


Mark 14:6-9


New King James Version (NKJV)

6 But Jesus said, “Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me. 7 For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always. 8 She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial. 9 Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.”


And


John 12


New King James Version (NKJV)

1 Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead,[a] whom He had raised from the dead. 2 There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. 3 Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.
4 But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, 5 “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii[b] and given to the poor?” 6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.
7 But Jesus said, “Let her alone; she has kept[c] this for the day of My burial. 8 For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.”



Luke 7:36-40


New King James Version (NKJV)

A Sinful Woman Forgiven
36 Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. 37 And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, 38 and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.”
40 And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”
So he said, “Teacher, say it.”
We know that this Mary was Miryam Ha'Achot-Eliezer v'Marta. Another Mary, Miryam m'Migdal, was healed of seven demons (cf. Mark 16:9, Luke 8:2). And they weren't taken out of all their pain, hunger, and suffering right away. But something kept them going. A most-important hunger and thirst was fulfilled. What was it? Hatoldah shel HaShomronit Yehudit can tell you:
 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” 8 For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
9 Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you
living water.” 11 The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? 12 Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?”
13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
15 The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.”

(A Parsha Katan: Mayim L'Chaim)


And
The Bread from Heaven
22 On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that one which His disciples had entered,[c] and that Jesus had not entered the boat with His disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone— 23 however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks— 24 when the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus. 25 And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did You come here?”
26 Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”
28 Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”
29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”
30 Therefore they said to Him, “What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do? 31 Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’[d]
32 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”
35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 39 This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

(A Parsha Katan: Lechem M'Shamayim)

 
As for me, I've admittedly had to Google and otherwise online-wise learn HaLashon shel Avoti; since I myself (as I've explained several times) never got the chance to get Ivrit or Yidish passed down to me. But that's a part of the hunger and thirst that I've had to have fulfilled: first coming to Mashiach and then having to discover b'Ezrat Mashiach a heritage and a chosenness that I missed for much of my life-- and a heritage that is much more fulfilling than the Anusi, Self-Hating heritage that my dad and his parents (and much of our family) had, has, and sadly continues to have lived with.

So I in my own situation-- as both Miryams and the Shomronit Yehudit learned in their own situations-- that one may not be able to end physical or other hungers right away and in this lifetime; but one can-- b'Ezrat Mashiach-- fulfill spiritual hunger, which is the most-important hunger to fulfill.

I Finally Gave In and Joined Faceshuk, Though I'd've Preferred An Invitation...

I like to humble, whether or not you believe me. That's much of why I don't self promote. I like to let the chips fall where they may and be reached out to over reaching out. For example, from Luke 14:

Take the Lowly Place
7 So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them: 8 “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; 9 and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. 10 But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.’ Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you. 11 For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
12 Then He also said to him who invited Him, “When you give a dinner or a supper, do not ask your friends, your brothers, your relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also invite you back, and you be repaid. 13 But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind. 14 And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”


Not to brag, but I've done this in many situations before and have felt guily, worried, or cocky when doing otherwise.

My Sister Actually Made This Jewelery With A Nice Jewelery Maker's Kit (Not a Paid Advertisement)...

In fact, she was kidding about me actually promoting...
This ring

These earrings

And this necklace
Though she appreciates that I did promote her jewelery making.

I Have To Market Better, Because Only 43 People Like My Facebook Page...

Yet, 246 Twitter followers, 197 YouTube subscribers, about 62 Facebook friend requests and suggestions... and I won't resort to sex, violence, and other cheap-and-easy methods of disingenousness and low integrity. So, I'm in a bind. 43/505 = .0851485149 (which reads like a phone number; but anyway...). I have about 9 people who like my Facebook page for every 100 people of whom I have an audience (and I didn't even count the YouTube Friends and Facebook Friends who I have, or the Facebook subscribers-- some of whom may be one in the same or in multiple categories).

I have to market better somehow, and without restoring to low or flank methods (including attack methods-- e.g., personal attacks that are entirely baseless and just to get attention. I don't say what I can't back up, despite what my haters might say.).
