Would – for example – having money be better than faith for provisions? Certainly health over money but how about faith? Such as I have... contrasts, no money to give. Peter and John on the way to pray in the temple. Regular beggar placed at the gate unable to walk, ask for his attention. Explain, “no money but what I have…” with this, helped him “get up and walk”. Did, obviously causing a stir.
Give to the poor and all that. If they’d money, what might have been the offer? With or without healing? Make a difference?
What’s apparent, is authentic sounding healing isn’t common. Heard about one on Sunday. In a normal public environment, fellow student, on crutches in pain. Relief soon after, feedback, next time they met.
Five or so years ago went with pundits, supposed economic and therefore social collapse, imminent. Was wrong. Now brewing up head-of to spilling over – thinking... soon and very soon? Next year, is finally this year, for a summertime of discontent. Markets frozen, ‘bank holiday’ and join the queue with rationed cash, what... this Autumn? NWO juggernaut next phase upon us.
Mercy and hope would be jolts, not the fuller-slammer. Yet somehow, longer the delays, more likely more the later and crush to the woods and hills. Internet be all-but gone i.e. Plant a Seed etc. (This one false-flagging, cyber attack, away).
Quite the hungry struggle. Could bring faith-satisfying upsides? Pockets of proper church, the hope bit. Growing faith through mad amounts of always in the word and prayer – could there be the turnaround?
Note ‘could’. Note the wobble and faith-less-ness.
But God is faithful: To me. This over yonks, demonstrated. Look forward to the contrast and less being a whole lot more.
Currently there’s little contemporary vision and alarm about the con-spiracies. Lots of pretend not. Add, main lock downs, ‘end-times’ neutering, or progressive dreaming, gullible govt.-ism. Hal Lindsey or Karl Marx.
Few murmurers in the online corners going with some umph, "we oughter… gotta/Do/Something". Now. Urgent and not so composed. For shout and cry-out in prep while do what might bring levels of respite. Not much, any broadcasting thus. Jus’ a lotta... let it roll, let it... and commentate the state. From most of the few.
Many and masses? Faith in normality bias. Faith in T.V.-type presentations. Cool to be cool. Not hot and bothered. Convinced, there’s a ‘positive thinking’ superstition. All presumption, no faith. Dreadful twaddle.
Takes F for real faith not fluffy platitudes. That God can and will arise in our midst. Knowing how much of this we have? Faith in measure. The outcomes and, if need be persistence, evidence.
Those who glibly smile and “will-be” are sleepwalking.
Oh where are the Goliath facing David’s?
Faith is gifted, come knowing what-for and going forward. Never earned through earnest devotion but gained. Fed and watered. Sown…
On the way to prayer these two knew the unction, moment of power and faith. Saw, asked for attention and delivered. Need seen/need met. Needed faith/had.
Shake off the ‘gold and silver’ facades and normal life NOW is obviously the word for today. Do the what-takes work and rest but commend, get ye some faith. Stop lying and listening to lies. Or being deceived and etc etc. This a big-why no faith. Depleting waters. Quenching.
Up faith, through; Jesus-name repetition, tongues, Bible always open and taking in, singing, lie rejection/deception-announcing, right confessions ‘n on ‘on.
Foundations in utter and complete dead-to-self -ing.
Something like this. Starter for me.
