not short or sweet

I have decided not to "shorten" or compact my thoughts on the end times. Instead they will be presented just as long as they need to be to be my "complete" thought on the issue

Just a word about being used by evil without knowing it, beware of any thought or action that leads to a curbing of someone else's freedom in Christ. Beware of any thought or action that is not led by God


Jer 1:9
Then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, "Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.
Jer 1:10
"See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, To pluck up and to break down, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant."

Jeremiah had words to say from God that would pluck up and break down and destroy and overthrow and build and plant, but the MOST IMPORTANT part is he was not allowed to choose the words he was being given were God's words and He would choose when and how and what to say.... Oh to just be "a voice" for the Lord God!!!!

Goals are nice, but

but sometimes they don't all get accomplished and that is ok to
Had a great time on the men's retreat, a blessed time, with plenty
of fellowship and plenty of quiet time with God. Got to put the Paul
Washer CD in my assistant Pastor's hand. Didn't get to lower
the page count on my end times paper, but i have a person with
a totally different opinion on my Zune, so it will be good if I take the
time to listen to and consider what they are saying and why.
I get so "sure" about my position that I refer to other positions
as the "lie", not a very good way to encourage dialogue.
Very good teaching about speaking in tongues this morning in
Sunday School class, by Robert Morris, straight-forward and
Biblically sound. Eye opening to have him point out this verse,
1 Corinthians 14:39
Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy,
and do not forbid to speak in tongues.

so how could you wrongly interpret, "do not forbid to speak in tongues"
???? Scary how easy it is to push aside the word of God...

My Utmost ...

Grab your copy of "My Utmost for His Highest" and
go somewhere quiet and invite the Holy Spirit to
speak thru Oswald on the dates 10/31 and 11/1.

The truth that leads to this sentence is "wonderful"
in the Biblical sense, of "beyond comprehension."

"He comes with the grip of the pierced hand of His Son, and says - "Enter into fellowship with Me; arise and shine." If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart. "
