God has needs. Desires. Wants. We're to understand the character of God in the how God biblically, is - but also in any personal dealings. Both fraught with ease to misunderstand. Know some of what I write, is leaping in the dark but hopefully not too full-on inaccurate.
Holy, holy, holy. Morning-readings, come to the 'Nazarite vow'. What's with the locks and ital? (Nb, must write a piece on TS about 'Rasta'). So what about vowing-up and separating off/on? And how's this, fulfilled in Christ and somewhat N.T. overturned. There we're told to 'do what we say' and not make all them ol'promises.
Holy = separation and this, to – and for – God. Fasting for instance makes easy-sense, because it 'changes us' - enabling a 'humbling' that increases being 'on it' – in prayer and on-to God.
Some of what God asks can carry a symbolic value, that again, brings something to-us but why else? Is it for God to 'see' thereby appreciate somehow? But w-h-y? God looks upon the heart. Hardly needs a flag.
I'm not here writing to try do some treatise. Should be a quick scamper a-thoughts, for 'me' to feed on, write out/into the digi-sphere – and unto God. And war-some with. Must pray of a morn, not; write, write, write - and not.
So? Unexplained and personal… (i.e. not trying to define and balance).
Holiness is about disconnecting from 'normal' transmission.
Have/clear as hope in God - in wanting a fighter and worship-er in me. I put 'fight' first, not because this proceeds... but - without the battle, what is the worship like? (Worship = personal walking/takin' - who knows, 'whistle and a song').
Encouragement expressed in promises like; the one who call you is faithful, he will do it.
Overturn the NWO onslaught. Rise-up my - and others – p.warrioring unto seeing roots and shoots of revival. Revival: God in our midst in a power and presence unmistakable. New churches and/or ways to, where necessary home - outcomes.
If I had a horse, do as John Wesley did.
(On that, I get the crit, why Methodism stopping a UK - French - Revolution, is over-zelous church revisionism but… this might explain the 'seen' world. Unseen. I'm sure as sure – did.
Today NWO lineage and heritage squarely includes the Jacobins. Therefore Wesley and contemporaries, are candles in the dark we should glean a word from. As haps: Jonsey went 'history-teacher' yesterday. The broadcast, solid target-making shots, in breaking down the religious undercurrents and organisation behind the curtain. Repetitively delivered, gripping and concise).
Holiness, I'm finding, is called and – here's the key – ...necessary, in almost direct proportion, to the need and urge, to go to war. Essential amour and weaponry. Not vows but exercises. Disciplines.
To conclude: yesterday's blab, was about turning to God, not turning 'from' idols - the way. (Devotion to, drives disciplines, from). The need to know why it matters, to behave better than not? To live more fanatically and wholehearted.
Jesus-talk is a bore for all but few. And even they/we, can get tired and weary. Sparks not. Answer: we’re made for mission. This may be constrained by practicalities; children, caring, health, poverty, slavery to debt/costs – the job and/or JSA counterpart. But (...there are strange but blessed-up exceptions), we need to need social and action, to find 'fire'. We need to believe 'in' why-pray.
Here's a word: The – French-like – Revolution is well under-way. We'll more-likely 'get-God' (in Christ – that is), if we run to this Goliath, while conversely crying out like a crazy for God.
Reminds me of this alt. Goliath preach. Pass on. Pray off. Push on.
