Here's a mystery or let's say, not straightforward, expectation. God works, engineers, moves and makes what can happen -- in less than intended circumstances. We're told we can ask according to what God wants and see this occur. Sometimes, the action proceeds one way or other with God involved, and this... isn't, the best case scenario. No question and could be misunderstanding what's going on and yet, God gets into. Face-up reading is confusing or counteractive. Contrary and the like.
Seen this happen. A life of missing and messing up. While know God is present and expectant and seeking, makes for; live-living. A profound interest and motivation of compassion for others and to see our ways make good. Tell us a thousand times what might make for real good and have us blow each turn and screw up every opportunity.
Of course, a right standing revelation is God needs/desires little but us-alone-and-with. All the busy and out there activities up front, plans, projects, profile etc. etc. The seen stuff... wonder how much is eternal-wise of much value? In using 'eternity' as value and the arrival and re-shaping here/now on the earth.
Local church planting has its place but what's around is stuck. Or most, minus, rare grow and sound enough outfits. Good-on goers and all that but... There's evangelism: ditto. Social action -- yup, love in action and God's love manifest. Again, evangelism through incarnating the message. What remains?
Prayer and prophecy. Worship. And fraught with dodgy; healing. And the most-most likely what's seen and nonsense, in deliverance. Prayer doesn't make this list. Or fasting, its other hand. This the lifeblood. Add worship on the personal front to the foundations and much speaking in tongues.
Then we have to find ways to make money, get shelter and food etc. This more -or- less an ish. Time-pressured by commitments and domestics. The go-on and struggles.
Know what God wants most to happen. Needs most to... (Yes, God has, what's described as 'needs'. Ones out of pain in love desires. The ones that took the cross to vanquish why we fell under the wrong dominion).
...see something like Rees and lot's goings on.
Reading again the blow by blow battling of Rees Howells and co during WW2, this all indisputable. Put the Classic Theology, Zionist offspring aside, they had flawed understandings. Thought -- what still peep do -- all sorts of demonstrable untrue myths and motives.
Mistook appearance and leader-led talk for truth and reality. Rather a full-on conspiracy theory of the lowest order. No way... unless open to God this much and wondering. Understandable. National psyching DNA.
Now-a-internet-days, seen the documents that show more or less, the true picture -- then what? Retrospective viewing of their diaried discernment shows the above thesis. Fooled again and again.
What is a matter of faith and vision is the significance of their effort. On a collective score -- not seen these likes..? Where? Tis contemporary Christianity absent. All about encounter-me and no-excuse denial of history for real. Or let's go; insistence to remain in the intelligent dark. Unprepared to go and get turned upside down.
Word is out. Hardly even 'secret' history.
No qualms though and this college in Wales, the nearest know about and public model of God's nos. 1 call today. Of course, the misconstrued version of Rees underlying theology is passive, not active. One thing to be praying for May 1948 another and sitting back, justifying it every which way and "look see". While brushing all the injustice under the carpet. Want the debate? Here.
Regardless, know the pro-Z prophets, got it wrong about this and that, over past decades. Know the honest-look-read Bible concludes; God is here and now and moving in. Not some outside time overseeing other. P-pp-Plato-ism and an over-reaction to an Irish monk have this mapped why.
Back to the war. We know... not faith and theology, not opinions and perspective, we know... between this and that spectrum; the common WW2 good vs. evil assessment is false. Altogether fooling, look back and nursery school level notions. Altogether rubbish. Not may... be, could, or might? Even alternatives-incorrect, although with somewhat plausible claims, more understandable than the standard gumph.
So reading the experiences of the Howells tangle but summit scaling endeavours -- say what?
Here's one overarching: God wants nations at peace, not war. Comes to bring a war that involves our come apart for the unseen war-ing and get-right. Predicts this kind of fighting will cause division. Most likely and will see; there'll be opposition. Knows there'll be one Judas among and lots of conflict and counter-attacks all about. Love brings a reaction.
To repeat and make a final plea:
Gotta shake off all theo-thinking shackles. Say without a smidgen of pride all grace upon a lazy-one, but... IF not now, IF not who, IF so when? No if. The news could be more Bill Hicks and puppets but as likely the death rattling demonic push. There's no fazed and confuse re God. No zio-sit-back stupid... STUPID selfish and yep, racist acquiescence. Waving flags and pretending. For what the Christian-active church swings on; Pretend about the world.
Note the push-push and Jewish protection squabbles. What an ominous sign. As for the City/Crown lot at their desperate to re-emerge post-dollar/exit. Most pressing is Damascus and the beast looming over to attack. God so don't want this. The day's front-front-line.
We have one need -- God's; in we enable a collaboration that's seen all throughout the Bible books.
Rees-lot and like words and groans, reinterpreted and the Spirit praying through and wanting peace. For the Gospel go-forth sake. For this purpose: The cross. For God seen.
Assume saw less hate and war -- because of that Welsh-based beacon.
