Christ died and the world shifted. God dealings different, with people thereon. Evil beat in potential outworking here/now. And justice found in God-self giving action. Faith and God invitation, the way through. In change our mind to believe the truth. Through receiving -- God. New capacities to love, a manifestation of the Spirit within.
The insistence by God for a nation to separate and be a place for inhabitation becomes all who make up this new life. Sometimes a person might only know little glimmers of life from the unseen one. Lost-again even but God's a chaser and if can, will take what opportunity we give, and bring about the return. Makes most of whatever people are towards the light.
All about connection. Can we be -- but not know? There's a degree of Biblical uncertainty combined with an urgency to "come". Know me. "Sit a while"-- open the Book. This faith and the 'wait' it takes. Gotta buckle up and try-pray.
The enemy wants delay -- God in Jesus, wants a return, in a final overcome. Love wants reconciliation. Terror through to joy, ticks on. God grieves and longs -- we should know this in our companionship.
Enemies are clever but deluded. Faith we go to such levels and depths of lies and injustice, hoping will once again, push God to destroy. Go against promised "never again".
These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts;
Pre-Cross, God/then, threatened to bring disaster. But speaks of determined to do good and for us not to be afraid.
Time to 'wait on' and until. Experience and cooperate in the Spirit with God to bring about.
Intercession means to fill up…[with] what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ. From 'My Utmost' yesterday, leading out on, …men always ought to pray and not lose heart.
The call is total. There are two places God 'resides.' The highest high, and most lowly. Today, did a reach-out comment. Agreeableness pushing the limits of grace? Deceptive, dishonest? No, stands. My conviction. But the issues of life are more often what's 'not' said. Was hiding, what?
Compared knowing God to marriage. What requires divorce, before embarking on God? Nothing and everything is the answer. Low and high. God leaves us with desire, never demands. We fellowship individually and this as different from one as another. All God asks for is attention and "come to me". Legalists, most-oft Calvinists. Trying to assess who might be and who isn't. Yet, God is calling all/right/now.
Some early-on and particular, in God knowing some reason, why? But all can/could come in/on if dare gives a chance. A desperate hope combined with action.
Many are called, few are/get fit?
When on. Only one ask. All. Not half or pretend normal reasonable living. God looking for all. 'Saved' left, right and centre but this isn't what God most-after -- it's all.
And to do? In this contemporary world. Dug-in, don't get up, stay until... no until. Distraction resistant. Know the unseen evil hordes mounting and manipulating. But...
