Quantity over quality, and speed over time with consideration. M'motto. Or, could be, with all this seed-planting lark.
Once upon, one a day and for ages. Knock out in gay abandon. Stop being at all, readership-conscious.
Get to the message. Reckon, revelation, at best. Here now, and this:
One of Jesus' ridiculous -- or shocking, and real -- claims, is there's a present dynamic involving the unseen. According to the analysis, entities are about stopping the word. ALL about this:
He who is sowing doth sow the word;
and these are they by the way where the word is sown: and whenever they may hear, immediately cometh the Adversary, and he taketh away the word that hath been sown in their hearts.
Nutter or nous? Only choice. Can try progressive-izing it away. "All symbolic and analogy, not a literal description". Thing is, there's no basis for this theology. Not when you read descriptions of manifestations and foaming mouths.
Then comes; "oh, that then, and misunderstood mental sickness".
Y'stretching it and a wee cop-out from the difficult and troubling, credibility, challenge. Going with a non-fiction reading? What's concluded?
Yes... get the contemporary halls of Charismatics/Pent'ies, all whip-up and who knows what, but... leaving muddy water's aside, the text should be an upsetter.
While another, me-say-Nah... and one of two extremes is:
The basis for life is, it's a test. God sets up the obstacle course and we should be grateful to grow because. When verses claim God -- exceptions granted -- isn't some cosmic trip-up and tester. The tempter, IS the tempter/s, and this ain't God.
SO, shuffle about in your pews/here all you like...
Independent person's without bodies who came about, not clear how, but this not the need to know. Rather, we accept the plain come cannot debate and defeat, paramount, there's free-will. Held within an open future.
Hence -- today/me/rev. -- we're supposed to get the potential snatching. Upcoming and upfront.
Eyes open, it comes.
While get this? The smallest of actions might be the biggest of happenings. So what's the reason?:
We're always building, growing, planting -or- getting robbed.
Two movements. Opportunity to love, give, trust, resist and embrace the present loving God. Get on better, build up, re-filling and embolden. Or, we suck the devils...
Right 'nuff -- and without care -- get on.
All am saying is give God a chance. Watch the 'little foxes' gnawing and nicking what God wants us to have.
Check it out and keep an eye on the choices not-to, or ought. Why not do the right stuff. Out of bloody-minded principle and "gotcha".
Got me a choice.
Little things, looks and language. All in celebration, we're loved and the lover's around and about, wanting to build-us-up.
Become we get on becoming, our most human and sane. Cut the crap and live up.
See the snatching; Smash it.
