...More than those watching for morning, Watching for morning. Obsessive attention. Gets you like this.
Reading these seeds? Get m' flow. Banging on same old song(s). (Do as well to track back and quote or link previous. Nb to me. “Do it”).
Good News comes, through our poverty, needing and meeting Jesus riches. Most 'open to' people, pushed in a spot, will reach out. The up of the down – God comes.
Activity, presence, impressions, transforming, illumination, undertaking, power. A person-like/is God – and head-scratching incredible. Dynamic, heartbreaking in compassion for.
So on us and loving.
Changes manifest, conviction, leading in a love, somehow in and for, without knowing why. Seamlessly transmitted, all comes from within. We get to like, love, adore and worship…
My soul for God. The above potential a growing into. For those beginning, can be spectacular rise-up and in.
Stop looking and putting before and in? God loves same as, we chose not to receive and free we are. And so we go. Rich enough otherwise, or resistant to give God a proper chance to reveal.
Or revealed and…
Why the low take-up, drifting from the pews, wobbly credibility of the flock? Lack of gusto in the ranks?
We've lost sight of the Empire and with only common to all concerns in a wash of materialism, conned-off and seek-not.
Told by a range of intellectual authorities, what kind of a world God is in. Understandably, we believe the recent past, is a general blueprint for the future. For the next few decades. Bit more poverty, touch more space-age.
We think this is what happens in contemporary 'liberal democracy'? (To give a tag).
Think we're richer than are. Actually, we are rich, in world-stuff (us/these parts) but we've been captured and soon to be robbed. God not behind or for us, to tolerate the robber but for catching and ceasing this attempted take down of God's will and plans.
Personally sorted (in Christ), we're called to go forth and do good. Do with God. The context of Jesus life and the early church was in the midst of empire dominant. We don't readily get this reading the New Testament. Miss the brutality. Miss their apocalypse-sense and the call-out this upon us today.
Call to care for the poor (first) and all, while building alternative church, is the general.
And 'none dare call it conspiracy'? (Another tag/title a book), is the particular.
General won't do. Particular will have us running. Revival comes in response.
God we need to know what you see and know. What's real and matters, such we have the poverty and need. For the children. If for no other, for them. But for you dear God we cry, your name, your love and glory – for you we cry, to you we obsess. Wake us, shake us, in the battle. In your armour of the Word and Spirit. In Jesus. Praise You.
