Reading the Bible to discover what those compiling it might have understood were communicating is important. Weighing how the church historically read is another. Using reason to balance and best conclude textual difficulties of translation and applying to contemporary questions – more considerations. The progressive nature of God's revelation post-early church and overall, why read/what to do with these books/letters, called the Bible – more etc.
Could go on. But why read and what do?
M'motivation is two-fold:
Apply 'God's word' in the war to save the planet and peoples from excessive destruction. Apply = hear God in reading the Bible and verse sown to reap.
This battle is over an awakening socio-politically and the individual and locally collective outcomes once grasped: Revival with God. Connected in waking being the primary prerequisite.
Knowing these words are – God's means. To communicate through me and out into the 'other realm'. To type and talk to God as I go and speak 'into'… speak in writing 'to' this.
Two or three reading it is enough. Www is slowly but stupidly being robbed from us. The need to call those nationally and globally crime-ing it the most worthy use of these keys and bytes.
Already now started this morning want to stop.
Rather say one thing be done. Realising less media = more likely 'hear' God. Impressions on to something. Less internet is our wilderness. Ideally, I'd be for none but comment somewhere and be done. I don't spend too/as long on the net, because only visit a handful of sites. Ok... what's a one-er this morn? Jeremiah 18/readings at.
God only judges to be redemptive – it gets that bad. Judges in doing some/heart hardening need to, mover and shaker/s.
The question of 'who has heard?'. Only those being selectively and/or potentially persecuted have something to say. About those that pulling, that many strings and our impoverishment that wide and woeful.
Peekay Truth Shut Down. There's a 'word'.
Whom Paul Craig Roberts wrote as; 'The person who prepared this — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnSNvvpI97M — is a bit crude in his language, but his point is nevertheless sound'.
And the verse above goes on with A most horrible thing has been done... Idols. Worthless Idols. Trust(ed) in. And somehow this not only being relevant to outworking behaviour on the ground. But in the 'aboves' – and what it does there? And this back and down and around…
Thomas Merton speaks of the disaster, 'no greater disaster', of being 'immersed in unreality'. And only in the work of exposure and repentance (awakening and revival) do we 'start on the road of dark contemplation'. He gets all 'material things' about it but whatever most engages us to lie along: Is anti-God and death bringing.
Still, more, same old song from me…
Need to get some time prior to writing and whammo…
This morning went here first and commented. Must/next time start all fresh and blank doc. Comment/s after.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God
Watch/read mainstream news with the Holy Spirit and it's one horrible sick façade. Total idol ramping. Monsters eating the word. Birds of the air Jesus calls it. Christ in the trampling: Christ give us the words to say/write. We need the 'nevertheless sound'.
