The 'Message' has it; we can now—without hesitation—walk right up to God. Sure I don't know what this means. Oh can spout theory, thankfully testify to experiences but really... the evidence is manifest in word and deed.
Believing and truly so, takes a lot more boldness than my normal shabby state. Lot more being in a place that's here and now in set-apart realms. Not choosing to default along. Faith up.
Easy to analyse the gap. Out of the mouth comes? Actions show? We're all so self-evident and there's no way we can fake it. Actually, can a bit... in company, and somewhat. But nothing holds for long and when the pressures on -- floodgates open.
We're squeezed and what's in, comes out. Or doesn't and should...
It's in the heart that counts most, which is the deepest part of us. Aim is we do what should in faith and God does the inner-deep molding along into this becoming ever more authentic. Always in faith but moving into believe you have received kind, more real than not.
To enter in, is impossible if our relations with anyone, isn't far-as led sorted. On this pronouncing and praying for blessing and in love, with the intention driven by God in us.
And here's what we enter into: The blood... The actual substance and in one man. Symbolising and yet materially connecting. What this unleashed into the world, imparting directly to us, are claimed deepest of the deep of realities. Manifest. On earth as it is...
Carries power and the person of the Spirit, to and for us. In operation or absent?
Spoken up and out or wasted.
In one sense there's a continual cover but in moving out and mission; talk and praying through the blood and Jesus death, is the the white light of life.
Mental assent moves to making these realities live. We have one clear instruction and there's no short-cuts: Pray continually. Come back to this again and again, a thousand times a day.
Stated (to myself and suppose/possibly God) that I should keep on my list of blinkers to awoken politics. And the alternative religious opposition which this politics is all about. Think I should keep on... so for this post?:
Blinker fear engagement might bring a spotlight and therefore trouble. No more questions or..? (As cops told Wolfgang Holbeck). Firstly; all digital information -- and somewhat and for-some beyond this -- is meticulousness tracked and mass analysed.
But then the 'blinkers' say, this is paranoid speculation. So what is it? There's no credible impending need-resisting the takeover crowd, so why shy away?
Or, there is and being inconspicuous, somehow prudent?
But then... if they're coming and all done for, unless with God we arise, what are we in a quandary about? (This assumes an open view of God, hence Christian Blinker nos1 and not).
Blinkers don't allow peripheral vision. We put them on, yet say they don't exist but neither is, the claimed to be missing judgement and insight. Again, what is it? All a merry-go-round.
That and those, which we blinker from, only care about people threatening law courts and the like and some low hanging-fruit getting collared. The scams are covered in the backdrop of apathy. Even in courts, a judgement can somehow be obscured or locked down for 'national security' purposes.
Plus they purposefully disclose and must look at the landscape to wallow in the complacency, which is all part of their dark ways.
Christians are key. Jesus has nothing much else to say but wake and stand (in prayer) in two's and three's but merrily we go, whistle while we work... heads down, hear the anti-Christ barking; "move on, nothing to see here, say "Caesar is god" and off you go and sing ya hymns and discuss y'theology..."
And yes, God works in and among his body but weeps for prophetic-led intercession, the call to find faith.
