Knocked this out and now – about as quickly typed – word for today. In a nutty shell, stones to bread etc.
Because ‘God is’/as/says-me Bible-wise, so cometh the roaring lion. Through God, and self-disclosing, purposes and ways.
Not overly satisfied and what’s available among theologians, re the war and how/why? Was to recommend someone – although not war-awake enough for me – would be, Thomas Jay Oord. Pitches a decent call re; Who God/How is? Regardless of not-admitting the geopolitical, me-believe, there’s more struggle and battle – and able to see God come, than he suggests.
(Think/must turn this morn type into apologetics. Was gonna do this on Truthscoop but unless pending plans to news-scoop with two others doesn’t land and take-off, will do here. This and typing truth to powers. Accompaniment in/for prayer.)
Put some of this don’t see the fight-so down to not embracing the awake (most publicly/therefore intellectual and disconnect). Our understanding of how far the enemy-got, influencing theological nuances.
For those with Calvin, or even Wesley (the two non libertarian free will positions), those who have-ish, taken the woken plunge, near-all let fate and ‘forever Israel’, turning the battle, something in a book written rather than, one we write. The Book of Acts, is... being completed. Or, not so much. But... the pages document, all that pioneering and credible church achieves.
A humble, who knows if/what/much – ‘written here’. This of course takes action ‘out there’ and not so talk ‘bout, talking about, tawktawk tawk etc etc. Only in prayer… this the other, ‘out there’. Street work seems potentially fitting. Social action/feed the power. As for gatherings – mmm mm… m’wonder what God thinks there? Prayer meets maybe but the regular stuff? Binds some together – that helpful.
Back to troubles-so and why? Described in one place as a lion. About lots of noise and able to ‘get’ us to do stuff. To further – resisting-God – destroying ways. Pay least mind I can about these lion-likes. Their outcomes on others, especially so-called power-elites, yup, all eyes – but God's my attention grabber and all obsession about.
Ought-er read Psalm 10, ten times today.
Maybe this, is what, these posts should be? Shopping/doing lists.
The main scoop must re-get on. Three requests. Stones to bread: Robots. Bow to me: Rituals. And; If you are...: Ruling.
Note three R’s. Thinking preaching notes/displays.
Temptations in the wilderness describe the assertion of transhuman religion, toward worshiping of beast in a false-prophetic reign. Back to the battle. War that explains our reality. Love proceeding all God (see T.J. Orr), is able to overcome with our disciple'd and disciplined collaboration. Jesus resisted this all for all, dies to enable us – and lives here/now/present, to empower. Reaching out to those who strive for good/real good, and mostly and importantly those able, to fully more fully inhabit – for the front-line.
Keep it to thus today. Less time on, a prerequisite.
Words, words, words. What about action? Or words ‘in’ action. That be the way.
