Should have finished yesterday in prayer, not intoxication. Would have completed the write but instead... Now, not up for the commitment to blab on that verse. Those temptations. Need more time on. Write as/ and when, all later talk, a vain plan. Plus, Fast but Friday night is proving angst-full. Forget am at work. Seven days and nights. Watch and wait. This what. The verse found this morn speaks.
Sow on this. The Word is always the issue in the battle we live among. This and the need to resist idolatry. The literal worship of demons in disguise. Stirred to enthuse in hopes not-sound and this the prob. with 'the bottle...' or whatever, takes us from God-ways.
Saw a picture of gay men doing their gay fest thing on a website. The caption read; 'Look like Biblical holiness?' Well no -- but would any picture of a group socialising, 'look like...'?
Families and children are the nearest to looking set-apart. Even this, although somehow conveys something of God, isn't 'holiness'.
The writer of the website wants to show outrage at the party and homosexuality. When even holding a trad. evangelical view, in identifying this, typifying unholiness, shows a lack of theological sense.
Biblical holiness is rare. It's extreme this-why. There's a set-apart/holiness for all who live in God/God in them. Then there's the working out of this. If so desire... the fullness. Made for God alone kind.
The Offence Of The Natural, today's Oswald C. is all clear. The right to me. This, the got to, let go of. And all and any -- inc. pious-sounding -- that gets in the way.
God and God alone. What madness this sounds. What crazy. The soft outside is; come any ol'how, reaches out, God meets you where/at...
The firm centre is death to everything and everyone, in comparison. Complete control towards God. This age and riches? "What's that?" Released in abandonment. Disconnected. Yep, brainwashed, (except not in respects to free and open in dialogue).
Time to take a break from typin'. For now.
Back on the rap. Therapeutic indulgence. Enough of a possibility and communicate to give it a prophetic edge.
Sowing into thorns not good soil?
Goes to back to faith. And we can't have it 'both ways'. Relying on... what? Saying and even thinking... what? We speak out of our hearts, compiled in our minds. The heart is deepest-us. We cannot transform this without God -- so the claim.
for where your treasure is, there will be also your heart
Hearing the word? And...
-- type-up in progress / little by little --
Saying 'Biblical holiness is rare' is relative and who knows what goes on? More a reflection of my own strivings. Supposed rest in grace, receive and not... strive -- but can't help longing for more constancy and deeper with God.
and desires for other things with anxiety or cares of the world and deceitfulness
of riches, that choke or crowd out, the word. Making the word redundant. Robbing of power. Draining the life out... through worry.
Reading this expectation, what room is there for moderation?
