Spend my days in qualification and ...am a Christian, but, and so the explanation goes; am like the ones you may know, but... . Always the need to add; am not the conventional kind, at least in alternative theology and not having all and many of the dislikable and confusing presuppositions.
In writing is the regret as I fire off the typing without notes and adequate consideration. A reason to write and the purpose behind research is to discover am wrong, or less-than aware, or informed about?
Yesterdays nag-back was about the standing before God and all being about what Christ did and faith. Not so. The works and ways we go, do matter, as is evident in numbers of biblical injunctions and passages. It's the Law of the old covenant and testament that cannot be obeyed and sufficient to justify our life with God, be it —here, or to come?
Third dig is about the paradox and questions about theology in the recognition people in the past holding views I don't. They're the human inspiration and forerunners for where am at and hope/going. An example would be E.M. Bounds and the book Essentials Of Prayer.
It's as though he doesn't believe his understanding and the 'bigger picture' throughout the book. In the chapter entitled Prayer and Trouble he spends two paragraphs trying to make sense of who and why 'trouble' exists?
Reads a tangle of logical fallacies and incoherence. Somehow God is behind everything but not? The one giving 'divine permission' to evil but all good. The word 'control' is repeated but somehow God is said to do so, without 'assuming responsibility'?
The difference between that outlook and a minority overall but in the millions 'open view' is the backdrop and contention behind the seen is a battle and war. God's 'control' is in the activity and present, in zillions of moves with and around people. War in the 'heavens' is mirrored by the troubles -or- resistance and victories on earth?
To say 'where North America goes, ...so the world' has value as a statement but the question is who is behind what's recognised as the land and nation? (For a decent explanation try; 'SUNDAY WIRE: Episode #434 ‘Technocracy is Here’ with Patrick Wood') . Yet, it's older and broader and City Of London, with Vatican City somewhere about that reveals the hands-behind. Secret societies going back 2000 years are the families behind a trio of power-blocks and operational in BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street.
More and an illustration that we are seeing one thing and yet another less-known and recognised is the hand in puppets.
As to the war in the unseen and realms; it's about our participation and collaboration with God and entities or, ...and not? The demons are in a fight for and over humanity that determines what socio-political goes on.
Except for God, and that come down to the believers aka saints. It's co-belligerents are true and honest tellers about the lies and hopes of the people.
Don't care its dismissed by Christians and sounds bonkers to unbelievers; its what the Bible through a healthy sift and discern over Christian traditions and reason in a thorough delve into political history. Reckon the battle got into a decisive period from about 1850 to 1950.
Then came TV and through to Mobile-madness today, which has been the great rise up and do down-down-down, through technology.
In the church, the first 80 years of the twentieth century saw a revitalised time through the re-discovery of the so-called Pentecostal to the Charismatic gifts and new versions and types of local church. By the 1980s it peaked and again, following the advent of the PC, saw some advantages but it came riddled with snares and traps.
Prayer and evangelism are more than the sum of their appearing parts.
Bad and redundant attempts are counter-productive but God works and uses -far as poss.- the most substandard efforts.
The why, and have hope(?) is God's leading on the one-to-on front. Think all ya like am lost in self-deluding believe-ism but God convinces.
God has a future to see won 'on earth as it is in heaven' for the early 20s and under.
All that's most needed is people of prayer and outreach as a prophetic and and sign.
Sure it's a lonely kind of path but what the heaven, and ain't so tough compared to all sorts. No choice, all that could do is an empty and dozy load of ol' bull.
The answer is all for God and attentive in the word and communication toward/with.
Getting rid of the idols and images is an action and ritual that proves itself in the outworking.
Few lines on Jewish and what not. Tomorrow will review to close what I've been seeking to get across over April. Look back and ...let go. On to go, go, go. To Truthscoop for a month and seek to be practical and not do politics or God. Well..., in a direct way.
In 2010 Stephen Sizer put out a tweet and it said he was concerned it would be a problem.
Taking the tweet down in no time, Stephen he has gone on to be the first in centuries vicar to get his cards given him for such a low level issue. All through to this year's final throw-out. The saddest thing is his desperate recanting and apologies.
Barely contentious, well..., no one dares, have a go.
Read the articles this past month in the two Evangelical papers (E.'Today' and E.'Now') and they were falling over themselves to celebrate Sizer's final condemnation.
Did they even mention why said now ex-cleric was 'anti-Semitic'?
No, no, no.
Similar is the BBC who can't face linking Richard D Hall.
One of a thousand articles and books on why 9/11 has elements Israel state and services written all over it. A quick search, find:
God loves all people but the lying we do to ourselves and each other, the stuff we trot out is a mind poison. It's all the demons do. They lie, and want our lies repeating back and broadcasting. The need to have it in-our-faces and deception is their power and mechanism.
The people of valour in the UK are truthers. The church can get its theology correct and present but in conceding to public-level lies is one categorical reason for the decline, at least in the main.
The repentance required for something toward the use of the word 'revival' is about an awakening to the anti-Christ use of the term 'anti-Semitism' plus all else that's disputable damage-bringing satanic-wares.
The increase in this particular Jewish-talking weapon will see us all locked down for truth-telling and about anything the state etc., defines 'dangerous', unless we stand our ground?
If, am getting a reader or three?
Not about 'others' or 'later' but us and today.
