This hymn is having its day and I’m going to be brief. Today’s readings are about offerings. Without more study and research I’d rather not comment too closely. Having said this, here’s not a study, meant to be a closet. Tap and pray.
This morning I intend to complete/watching, the second half of Hellstorm and try and feel some of God’s ache and tears. It’s quite the most undocumented and dreadful of, modern-day, holocausts. Of course, those overly-sensitive to anti-Semitism (be it for ‘real’/suggested/potentially/close-enough or in the universe thereof...), won't appreciate some of what could be taken/ implied. The site itself will give the faint-hearted and/or Zionists, the willies.
But what? All you read where - all agree and believe? And Jesus so clearly went where he wasn’t expected - he shouldn't? And I’d rather be among some of what I might disagree but at least has, the unusual guts, to look and seek capital T. truth.
This horror of history - Hellstorm - is a ‘task unfinished’ and - excuse the lazy use but all that comes...is, BY GOD, a wake-up.
No-one can possibly deny what this documentary exposes. Aware of the facts eh? I-doubt-it. A broad brush but get close, look hard. Stare at the enemy but see through Christ. We ought/should/must - cry some. MY God... seen in other times and places but I say, again, Look... and Admit, like me; We’re being deceived, if nothing else, in the lack of encouragement to deal with this.
I’ll offer a comment on this/there, one corner, of my particular digi-mission-field. Oh... now I’m back at church, Premier at that, engaging tentatively inside the/our ch.camp. I have less call on this. Sharers in praying aside. Although, I like to have - what’s left of - some Twitter contact. Again, a little and me-tentatively suffices.
The ‘sacrifices and offerings’ passages do say one thing: God’s into ritual. I’m on that. The need to incarnate, elaborate, inculcate - summit like dat. And beg an obvious; Is this all for God and/or us and how about, unto other realms..? and specifically, enemies?
Here now? I’d put communion into the home-routine. I’m on that again/finally. I call it ‘doing Johnny Cash’ (he did/daily). Oils. And... Lots more... that our imagination is given us - for.
Thanks for reading. And seriously, I’m not being a wind-up to pump-up here. Do not watch this doc unless ready. I don’t expect to start including links for anything in these earlies. And certainly not videos. I’m prepared to make this one a rightful exception. Forget have some tissues, have a bucket next to you.
Oh my God. Take this insensitive gloss in our cocoon from us. At least replace many of the man-made ones with the clothing - that’s Christ. We face a task unfinished. We ask you touch us with your warrior anointing: The Saviour, whose love constrains us. We need you so badly, so much. We reach to receive. We pray. In Jesus.
