Gabbing on prayer, again and again, and... Isn't the can be waste as with much of theology-sing. This said, plenty of weedy and wobbly misunderstandings surrounding this top task. A virtual 'one thing' do. Thinking we ought to do anything other shows moving away from the centre of God's heart.
In the word, by the power of the Spirit, communicating with God. It's 'the great office of intercessors on earth' (see NOTES). The operation of faith. Bible words ignited in our relationship with God and applied with leading and... fury. OK... and urgency, plus panache. Gusto, vigor -- all that. Can be fragile and quietish but the intent must be; praying always -- and all can.
A prophetic sense of the times and needs.
Sure, differences and different days, but not these ones. So interconnected is this techno-world there's nowhere to 'escape'. The cover-up and lack of Truthscoop care or awareness, might fool somewhat/most but even then... The creaking and cracking facade is upon us.
The whole world, unknowing but awaiting for the arising of women and men, boys and girls. In that, creation doth expect the revelation of the sons of God.
Praying-warrior qualifications; Be willing and all compelled. Hence, this preaching here/to me. Get the way, and don't pretend otherwise -- helps. In shaking off the demonic tosh, that all-going-to-be, what's always going to be and the future. Conned in holding, God hasn't the freedoms to change tomorrow that we seeming have? A locked-in Greek/Plato put-on lens and looking at scripture. Began circa. 300 AD.
God is confident and can intervene is the promise. Genuine free-will in creation, the terrain. Enough and assured but the future isn't set and the present is where God is -- likewise and us. The challenge in suggesting otherwise is a pop. and growing enemy-based philosophical onslaught. If we'd only believe the reality is 'a projection/simulation'. A fluid nebulous, self-generated dream. This is why more effective and accessible stimulants/hallucinogenics are so important. Soft in the food, water, skies, and pharmaceuticals. Hard in the dope. How to motivate many in war zones through to tripping out ever-larger swathes of younguns.
What's God at? Where, and doing..?
Jesus is in communion with the Father, and one and God, with the Spirit. These names and descriptions are a revelation for understanding. The triune, all one -- final reality. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit describe the relationship, united yet separate personalities. Person/s.
We know what the Son claims to have gone through in a birth on earth, death, and resurrection. Ascend back from where he came. What now?
Jesus is praying. Constant and persistent. While the set-apart -- holy -- Spirit is here among us. Closest and engaged with the willing and compelled in a potential uniting. Our bodies and minds, words and utterances, deep in concert with God. This the aim. We struggle and splutter but if we... keep-on-keeping-on-keeping time, keeping on...
And WHY? (...and here's were the dodgy theology can knock us flat and slinks off the map): To make and see done, what wasn't/isn't/or won't happen, unless... To see the Book of Acts completed. For God's realm as in God's near proximity, become present realities, here and now. Jesus fulfills his purposeful death and now intercession for a can't-but-be-loving redemption. For a rescue and respite from the world's evil and suffering. To bring about a new humanity. To vanquish the enemy and relinquish the lost.
There's a major term in 'reconciliation'. A bring about the original plans and promises. One big thing about God is what's said. There are internal God-in commitments that once set forth are there to make good. Choosing not to wipe creation out and press on was painful for God. In the one deepest of all creation moments -- the cross -- we are seeing the greatest mystery of all. Love and justice meet. Mercy, grace, and here we have the 'reconciliation' through becoming 'in Christ' -- a Christian.
Praying, and simpler even: Make what God wants. Again, the word is ...happen. Undertaken by those who don't believe so clear is a genuine thankful miracle. Better know; it is what we're made for. To do.
Gotta go. Turn the engine on.
