Knowing God's love and my poor uptake... is experiential evidence of more than less openness. Balancing scriptures of warnings and hope, with respect to how much we fail to live up to/not heeding at all -- there's a tension. Uncomfortable uncertainty. Should burden. Groans and the destruction.
Despair at the Church... While no surprise. Despair at 'me' -- my lackadaisical behaviour. Selfish and stupid. The two words that sum us all up. Looking for exceptions, a vain pursuit.
The urgent call to "come" is for now and knowing God. With this our life becomes eternal. Given and everlasting. Saved from what's to come. Inevitable destruction of our capacities unable to sustain through. Except for 'receiving Christ'. What the Cross brought and The Spirit making a home in and with us.
Made alive again... made alive now.
The need to remain with degrees of uncertainty is reasonable. Historical perspectives vary. Mine to be yappy and a scattering collage of freestyle.
Writing to me/to God/to the unseen. Will try and get clear/er when...
Angelic celestial-like beings chose to go alone. The authority they had, became corrupted. Nature influenced by this and their direct interference.
God created a hell -- the grave or the pit -- where they await judgement. For now, they/some entities, have spheres of influence upon the earth.
Humans were to enlarge, while somewhat mirror, the Truine love which is God -- and counteract evil. Devil/s.
We are responsible for our actions and this about finding what light we can to reach out to God. To join with and fight the enemy. Through prayer and proclamation. Love and all-giving, to all we should.
That be that for now.
Will do part 2 t'murra.
