the spirit of prophecy

Rev 19:10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See [thou do it] not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony ofJesus is the spirit of prophecy.
so just a thought to ponder, the testimoy of Jesus life, death leads to life...suffering leads to glory... willing sacrifice brings life...
prophecy .... those who walk in this gift or far far more rarely this call ...  are called to live a life such as this..  it gives creedence
to the message of their words
i think this thought was inspired by a Jason Upton song

faith

Faith is not some weak and pitiful emotion, but is strong and vigorous confidence built on the fact that God is holy love. And even though you cannot see Him right now and cannot understand what He is doing, you know Him. Disaster occurs in your life when you lack the mental composure that comes from establishing yourself on the eternal truth that God is holy love. Faith is the supreme effort of your life— throwing yourself with abandon and total confidence upon God.
Oswald Chambers May 8th "my utmost"

fear and love

wrestling with the "process" of how a person gets to 
goes thru
a deep conversion
 a heart change
Robert Murray McCheyne has some insight
"you must be drawn out by fear and drawn in by love"
he gives the example of Saul's conversion to Paul
the jailer of Paul and Silas
and the thousands that Peter spoke to on Pentecost
as to how first there is "fear" and this leads us to "love"

Oh God help us to preach the whole gospel and to see
true and deep conversions to YOU.

it ain't easy

"It Ain't Easy" is an amazing song by Jason Upton
and in the middle of it is this truth

"....and this is how we really turn the tables, ..
to give it all ... to get nothing back"

God's truth
Real love
is a radical thing far different from what we
are being shown and taught
far different
far far different
