The need is to proclaim. Words beyond their commonly understood, obviously-rational, application. More, super-rational. The use that connects them/in prayer, to other realms. First, where my attention goes – to God. I leave it there but this I know… believe, has other purposes.
And on mine: Not write so 'about' but write 'into'. The rare sound and visions are of this category. To weigh my own contributions so far, (a year of comments/four months of comments/posts), I'm not sure what's been prophetic?
Some of this is because I'm writing 'to an audience' (that I'm barely getting) and explaining, explaining… always this. On this I'm grateful for those gracious or bold enough to acknowledge their interest but accept my position is not 'popular' – hardly... and perhaps, I'm still too in a how-to-this mindset, at least with Plant a Seed, and need to 'let go'.
The other dynamic is overall web-fatigue. The half a dozen or so sites I read/comment on/even less, are themselves relatively unpopular, considering the subjects they deal with. And the web generally...
Small in small then. The 'why' – then? – is to: Write and pray as led. I'm not sure this is happening so much, overall, yes – found some ground, but having little readership, should concentrate on addressing the 'other side'.
Back to the 'rare word'? What causes action in the unseen to respond, move, make, do, resist and is resistance to evil – through exposure and the 'dunamai', dyno-into… unleashing.. through faith, in power – 'talk'?
'The word' is, comes because, and where have we examples?'
The 'word' is something/one, that takes what God says in the Bible and appropriates, re-frames… re-places it, in some form of communication that becomes prophetic. Timing matters and so does the faith and power able to flow through the messenger. (What P is ? – later and ongoing re; Be my vision).
'Comes because?' we hear God. And when we hear, and 'like God' say, let there be… - this, can – be.
Truth is, I'd do well to spend a whole lotta what's available, praying, worshiping, word-in and where/how – listening. Than tap… tap… tap… and all and more-so, this.
One small mustard-seed of faith in a given word, is worth all the pontificating and supposed effort.
Examples? Evangelicals are… (please note anything I write, is in a hope 'n pray, for those outside the pews, hence…) – they/we… are, apart of, three 'kinds'.
Those who'd read this and say the gifts and supernatural as demonstrated in the Bible ceased. Known as cessationism. So 'no', not relevant or responsible.
Charismatics and/or Pentecostals (virtually merged today) – don't/believe, gifts/stopped. In theory my 'word from God' stuff, should be all at home here/there? Yes and no? And examples? –
(Best I start adding links below to what else I've written on this and dilemmas there. Will look back and start doing this).
And, 3; Progressives. These are the runaways from the above, generally in less or no, direct association, with an emphasis on intelligent (note that word, maybe 'intellectual' is more the distinctive) – engagement in/to the world. Always emphasising 'justice' and more/less into 1 or 2.
Ok nuff f'today.
To pray/write/pray. (Oh and not followed the readings today, back-on, t'murra).
God without you, nothing, with you..? So much more than we can ask or imagine. In awe, I ask you to be present (with me). To become... present, in and when I do what need and can, to receive what you so promise to give. To all those exposing lies of empire, I think of ones and twos, who let me comment on their proclamation platforms… I name them now__________ . Protect and empower. Help frustration not to turn inward. For all the journalists covering 'war' continue to inspire with compassion and help us all believe (who do), you are for victory over death. In this life; peace over hate, and that you may be heard, by all who might. That the suffering you died for, for people who you love – amen and amen. In Jesus name.
