Circumstance suited. The weak and meek make the difference. Ones called and able. God risks -- with much to achieve through us. Not this seems to matter to many? The co-opt into prophetic futurism and watching the map unfolding -or- more progressive and visions of generations in a relative techno-based security. At least content, too much alarm, uncalled for. One side spells out the crisis, the other 'keep calm and carry on' the priority.
Can't and won't moan but accept-alone in my combo: Want for zeal yet open, and awake. Takes a particular history and considerable failure, to wrought out this way. Best make, best of what we are, eh.
The need for God to work with less and make more is a constant Biblical feature. How God works more with less of us.
Technology is a lot about why we have 'less need' -- we presume. All the while the device turned against the winds of our natural order to tame -- seen by the awake -- is pointing back on us. We're the target. Digging the holes -- why, and for who or what, we ask?
Conclusion; God wants to achieve the humanity back from the brink turnaround, with a few. To make an unseen clamour and have the enemy do as Gideon did (with less than necessary): When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords.
Now-times, in prayer and worship. A holy holla. Hence the need to make a Charismatic noise. Go on and on and on...
This all that remains worth social-action talking about. God realm action. The need for rise-up early and go to God. And, go on and...
We need the signs and wonders Jesus told John in prison is the evidence of the presence of God. We need lots else going on, sincere and humble in Jesus name. But we need the awoken in prayer most.
Say 'in prayer' in and get-on, no one else, but God. Might -- as in my case -- be a poor man splutter and half-baked. Fragile focus but head in the word and... something. All m'know is: Takes being alone. Doing nout else.
What Ravenhill say? 'Die, wait, and get alone'.
Modern/for me -- interpretation: Stop listening to others, esp. online. Dispense with any fake-projected humanism and 'shut the door'.
God opens eyes. What can't or won't he do in yielding and all given over? The lack of much happening, church floundering -- so what/for now. Be encouraging, not so-alone but hey if the cap fits...
