truth

talking with a young boy yesterday about his love of math
which he followed up with by stating he was second in his class and had beaten 6th graders in a quiz, to which i responded
"If you love something it is easy to spend time learning it", then........drumroll.........wham!!
i realized i had just said a very smart thing that definitely applies to our spiritual lives

so help us God to fall more in love with You and spending time with You and becoming more
like You will be "easy and light"

stripped

"You are not at liberty to take offense at being stripped"...of stuff
God to Art Katz when a man whom he had helped and given much to, stole a whole whole lot of stuff from him as he was leaving the community.

the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy

Revelation 19:10 Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he *said to me, "Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."

the more i listen to "truth" the more this verse makes sense
prayerfully i offer this

the testimony of Jesus, His true and good witness, was His life, Laid down in death, willing to pass thru death, loving others more than Himself, Loving and doing the will of God NO MATTER WHAT THE COST...
so the spirit of prophecy
the underlying motive and loving reason behind our prophecy needs to be a heart that is willing and even "loves" to lay down our lives and no matter what the cost DO THE WILL OF GOD.
Putting aside our temporary stuff for the absolute beauty and glory of the kingdom that is to come!!
amen Come Lord Jesus in our lives
be the Lord of my eating, drinking and thinking and doing

Oswald, and a rant

Chew on this by Oswald from today's reading
do not go fast
chew on it
"A conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men." Acts 24:16
God's commands are given to the life of His Son in us, consequently to the human nature in which His Son has been formed, His commands are difficult, but immediately we obey they become divinely easy.
....................
such a deep and amazing truth, God give us a conscience void of offence toward you and toward men!!
.......................
the rant
the lie of "God will rapture you out before the tribulation and persecution"
has succeeded in creating a fat, lazy, self-centered, stain filled, bride--- that has nothing in common with the pure spotless bride that MUST come out of persecution and fire, the fire that purifies, the suffering that makes us like Christ, it MUST come it MUST be recieved with the grace to walk thru it, trusting in the God who we cannot see, who does NOT come thru for us in the time of our choosing, the bride
'who loved not their lives unto the death ' Revelation 12:11
Oh God have mercy on us, on Your Church, help us Lord to speak the truth in love.

wait for it

an encouragement to keep on keepin' on
keep praying and seeking God
keep asking for more of Him and less of you
keep choosing to walk in His Spirit

hab 2:3 "For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.

just a word on the "appointed time" of God, borrowing from Art Katz
God's time waits for His Church to come into its fullness
so it isn't so much a "day and an hour" as a time when the conditions
that He waits for are fulfilled
so lets grow up church and seek and live for His Glory
