2. Walking with Jesus: As a Branch Draws Nourishment from the Vine

 

  1. Walking with Jesus: As a branch Draws Nourishment from the Vine

 

Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”

 

 

 

Every day there are a great many things that would draw us away from the Lord Jesus Christ. You see- some of the sons and daughters of Adam have said, “you need a new _______ before you ever need Jesus.” Or, if you are like me from time to time, if you do a double-check to see if you are sucking your sense of direction, worth, purpose, vision, and on and on and on from a significant other then you will see you will eventually feel an emptiness come over you or worse yet, you’ll be left high and dry for people aren’t perfect. So- what or who are you abiding in?

 

 

What do you go to for nourishment when you begin your day or end your day? The reason lots of relationships break down is simply because that special someone is always giving and it is a big temptation to always be taking. With Jesus- it matters not how much you draw from Him for his counsel, encouragement, direction, or just simply you draw so that you might give him back the fruit of praise and worship in whatever you do in His great Name.

 

Psalm 91- in the Old Testament – starts with these verses: “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” How comforting! With Jesus as our Vine we will find rest. With Jesus as our Vine we will find we are walking in His Shadow- He is all around us making a way lest we be scorched. Where the heat of the battle comes, He is our Refuge and Fortress as we abide under His Special Care. Jesus called His Father the Gardner insuring that every and all His children are Channels of Blessing as they abide in Jesus. So, God has a huge investment in seeing us become victorious fruitful over comers. Oh!

 

For those who are led by the Spirit are the children of God.” His Holy Spirit dwells in every soul who has thrown his/her self upon the Life, Death, Burial, Resurrection, yes- even His Finished work in life and death on the cross shedding His own Blood to cover the many ways we miss God’s mark for our lives. Are you covered? Is the Holy Spirit dwelling in your life daily? Remember- Christ’s own shed blood covers the spottiness of your Abiding in and Walking with Jesus. Part of Jesus’ work in you and me is refining us as though by fire that we may come forth as gold. Imagine- gold-fruit flowing from Jesus into your life!

 

Do you see in part- as we explore walking with Jesus- what it means from yet another angle? The Bible is full of such encouraging examples to keep us encouraged and on the right track- so, keep the dust off of your Bible or Screen and dig-in for in the Written Word you will find The Living Word and the Holy Spirit using it to work in your heart daily. Blessings on you reader! The Holy Spirit (the Lord) produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!” “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” Such is the kind of life available for the one who “remains” or “abides” and walks with Jesus by His Mighty Spirit.

3. Walking with Jesus: As We Humble Ourselves

  1. Walking with Jesus: As We Humble Ourselves

To be humble means: one is accurately mindful of his/her own importance and abases him/herself regarding importance as others are esteemed = to or > than. Believer- we are called a Kingdom of Kings and Priests unto the Living God of All Glory. But, these acts of the mercy and grace of Jesus’ glory bestowed upon us are through the broken bread and the flowing of wine- Jesus’ broken body on the cross where crimson flowed on our behalf Church! And so the author knowing this positional and legal glory placed upon us as a mantle says to the Philippians, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus” … and what kind of mind would this be? “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”

Wow! This one to whom all the elect angels of Heaven bowed down to was found in the form of a man. This one of whom it is written, “For in him all things were created:things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;all things have been created through him and for him.” This one- Jesus of Nazareth stooped down to mankind as an act of humility and then went further through “the passion of the Christ” and stooped down to being nailed to the cursed tree between two criminals counted as a criminal to Redeem His people which he has both done and will do. That is the kind of humility God calls of us.

By faith as God had split the Red Sea wide open for the peoples to go through- the sheep of His pasture- Moses led them on in the faith. After such a Mighty Deliverance Moses never got all puffed up and never completely turned his back on God’s people in the wilderness though they angered him- still- he was humble enough to plead to God on their behalf not to utterly wipe them off of the face of the earth. After standing before the Pharaoh of Egypt and watching one plague after another- it never went to His head- for he was faithful in all his house God put him over and so- it was all to and for the Glory of God to deliver His people and send plagues to Egypt by the hand of Moses and the Mouth of Aaron. Still- he just kept keeping on and never waved his staff around like a mad man when the people angered him in unbelief as though to threaten to call God’s fire down from Heaven. For it is written: “(Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.)”

Years ago I wrote a paper entitled Humility: The Doorway to Unity Philippians 2 because that was the thrust of the whole passage and not just that but it had embedded in it the same idea of the outcome of the bond of unity via. Humility as Peter said, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” How would one pray except to say, “Oh Mighty Savior Who Humbled Himself even unto death upon the cross we praise you for God has highly exalted You giving You the name above all names- every name named in Heaven and on Earth. And You are the same Yesterday, Today, and Forever- for all Eternity and we too shall be highly exalted and have been in Jesus name and V is on our shield for the Victory the Lord Jesus has already won over all of our enemies. Yes, Lord, we may have tears for the moment but joy comes in the morning because He Lives ever to make intercession for us!!! So God, exalt the Lord Jesus in my midst and let us know well His Glory.”

4. Walking with Jesus: As One of His Disciples

  1. Walking with Jesus: As One of His Disciples

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

A quick Google search brings up as a definition of a disciple as: “a personal follower of Jesus during his life, especially one of the twelve Apostles.” Or, “a follower or student of a teacher, leader, or philosopher.” My take is being a disciple is like being an Apprentice of the Lord Jesus and being told to go into all the world and make more apprentices. Therefore, how Jesus lived and died in the face of everything we call that a supernaturally normal life and so much beyond. Simply put, we are to walk slash live even as Jesus did. In Antioch, so much were the people of Antioch moved by the disciples of the Early Church they called Jesus’ followers “little Christs,” telling us- surely they walked as He did. And, if you read the book of acts surely they did with signs, wonders, and miracles wherever the gospel was preached and disciples were made. Friend, when it comes to making true disciples of Jesus God the Holy Spirit- like the wind – moves to and fro throughout all the earth to bring souls to Jesus feet in revelation and faith, redemption, and reconciliation back into the Father’s loving, gentle and forgiving arms.

One thing for sure is that Jesus Christ never meant any disciple to take up His global plan for mankind in his or her own strength. So much so is this true oh powerless ones He says, “I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” I another place Jesus says, “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” The point really is two-fold: After you become an authentic disciple of Jesus Christ you may believe and receive power from on high in your inner-person and experience this fact, “Jesus is with His disciples” right away or you may need to rest in faith that God wants you empowered or subdued or endowed and infused with power and wait for these things in prayer or ask brethren who do know God to lay hands on you to receive for it is written, “ask and you shall receive.” And the word “with” is really- we become co-laborers with Christ. There is a verse that says, “Let him who has ears to hear hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches,” and I believe right now God is calling us in a peculiar way to experience the Holy Spirit and this “with you” Jesus the Christ to go and make A-Z disciples with healing, signs, wonders, visions, and believers dreaming dreams sent from Heaven above to move His Kingdom forward so that “thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”

Yes- I really, truly believe that we are being called to re-consider what it means to be a disciple who is destined to receive power, love, and a sound mind and not just encourage souls like a 5 minute thing- even though some sow, some water, but it is God who brings forth the increase. That is a comment on God on the need for His power and how He is always- ever unceasingly working with all those who Know Jesus Christ. Pray for the Orphaned believers around the globe who had a 5 minute encounter with the gospel and obeyed God unto being saved through faith in Jesus Christ’s finished work. Reconsider what it means to make disciples and perhaps re-connect with those souls you just shared your faith with and then abandoned them.

Jesus gives us a Paradox, “take up your cross and follow me,” for all those who are in Christ Jesus will suffer volitional suffering or suffering because you are called and walk like a believer full steam ahead. And the other thing that seems to contradict this idea of taking up a cross daily (metaphorically- but, in some sense really). Jesus said, Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” On the one hand we are to face the rigors of this life and those spots, seasons, and places where we are being misunderstood and persecuted and tossed and tumbled by the prince of darkness by taking-up our cross, dying to our own preference of the moment, and continuing on following Jesus Christ as the Spirit of all Comfort and Father of all Comfort comforts us. And then on the other hand we are to take the Head-Trainer’s yoke (like the yoke oxen wear for to train the younger ox to learn the ways of the older ox- Jesus is the Ancient of Days- He’s been at Holy Living forever) upon us and learn about Jesus Christ as given in God’s Written Word. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened and that you would be strong in the Lord and the Power of His Might.

All Truth is God’s Truth

 

 

 

An Augustinian Paraphrase:

 

All Truth is God’s Truth

 

Personal Facetious Ponder for the day: “If I’m truly an ENTJ, what is stopping me from ruling the world?” :>) Answer: Every year there are at least 10, 000 reasons as to “why not?” to my metaphorical “ruling the world?” question.

 

I’ve spoken on gifts of the Holy Spirit in times past and I don’t know if it went over very well by my Christian and Non-Christian “receivers.” I recall I spoke about (my paraphrase) a word of knowledge, a word of wisdom, and a New Covenant prophecy. There are examples of these all through the Bible and so this is why at the end of the day- I want to quote the title of a book: All Truth is God’s Truth (1977). Remember, truth never gets old though a book might be- kinda.

 

 

So- Intuition is one of the traits in my personality-type and I wondered what it was and I set myself to researching. So: “Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without proof, evidence, or conscious reasoning, or understanding how the knowledge was acquired.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jungian_cognitive_functions, n.d.)

Intuition is also presented as a basic psychological function as hunches and visions provide an alternative means of perception to sensation: “It is that psychological function which transmits perceptions in an unconscious way. Everything, whether outer or inner objects or their associations, can be the object of this perception. Intuition has this peculiar quality: it is neither sensation, nor feeling, nor intellectual conclusion, although it may appear in any of these forms.”  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jungian_cognitive_functions, n.d.)

 

I underline the mystical side of all things and that is “how the knowledge was acquired.” But, as I mentioned and underscored a truth- no matter where truth comes from- whether Heaven itself of the Earth below- “All truth is God’s truth.”

 

If Daniel of old would have become a post hole digger, he would have missed out on the thrill of applying Wisdom, the blowing winds of intense character testing ridicule, the tempering and testing of his patience and faith, and the severe trials that would later increase his faith. And then, there was the reward, too. Though, me thinx- pleasing the one whom He served- the Mighty Jehovah-Jirah- would have been enough for the humble Daniel by doing what he was obviously skilled at. P.S. Post hole diggers are in an honourable position to if that’s what’s available and God has called them to.

Fallacious Thinking and Correction

 

 

 

 

Fallacious Thinking & Correction:

 

  1. Last Days

 

Some people believe that the last days are those days at the end of the world. But, during the times when the Apostles walked and talked on the earth and after the crucifixion took place the writer said of the Last Days:

 

 

Book to the Hebrews (1:1-2)

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.

 

So- for a couple of thousand of years at very least mankind has been walking and talking in The Last Days. What did you expect them to look like?

 

  1. Antichrist(s)

 

Some people have set all their attention to waiting for 1 single anti-Christ which is similar to waiting for one single Last Day. The timeline is skewed. So- the Apostle John straightens this whole anti-Christ thing.

 

1 John 2:18

 

“Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.”  

 

  1. God’s Take on Time

 

Some people believe that our take on time regarding “last days,” ”last hour,” or “when antichrist will come” is the same take God has regarding time when He speaks of it. That’s fallacious thinking. Many antichrists have already (are) come brother/sister in Christ Jesus and Curious Non-Believer.   

 

2 Peter 3:8

 

“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”

 

  1. Just a simple belief in some whatever “a god” is Enough

 

There is a bothersome thing going around and around and around in different forms. But, they all end-up swirling in a spiral to this kind of religion: godianity or a Christ-less “Christianity” (these want to prune the Lord Jesus off of the faith once for all delivered unto the saints) Or “Christ-less Eternity.” I have no idea where such persons (they seem to be in abundance) got their idea of god or of a Christ-less “Christianity” and Christian World-missions (what’s the point of Evangelism if Jesus isn’t the Divine Saviour-Son of God- the Door?)  

 

The Lord Jesus- regarding people who held to the OT Living God – was gentle towards them and didn’t want them to stumble and said in John 14:

 

 

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.” Jesus

 

 

Remember this Rhyme: “People who can’t just take that step of faith are really trying to play it safe.” They are going to stick it out with God-somebody-something- but, not using Jesus as The Bridge to Life- “that’s too extreme” and not wide enough for them.

 

[He said, “what are they saying- listen? He said, “they are calling the receiving and believing and resting in and telling the good news to others about Jesus “Extreme.”]  

[He said, “they send it in a file after copy-paste-send- that’s how and why those with no interest in it all don’t know what was copied and pasted and sent oh precious-one to God the Father.”]

 

But- the Apostle Peter makes it abundantly clear that The Narrow Way is wide enough so that you don’t have to fear or be afraid that trusting in Jesus is like joining a cult.

 

1 Peter 1:21

 

“He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.21 Through him (clarification: Jesus) you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

 

Let me flip that “backwards” kinda: Through faith and trust in Jesus you really believe in God because He was God’s plan; so your faith and hope are in God.

 

  1. The Last Days will just be very, very hog-wild so you can’t miss them.

 

By the way I write at times moving in and out of the past-present-future people might get the idea I’m stuck on an Apocalypse centered or end-times centered something…but, if you go through all my writings (many hyperbole and art and some insight) you will find out of the thousands of topics or fresh or old ideas embedded quite a bit of talk where “end of the world stuff” is absent. Did you notice that? Tonight I thought this was needed- though.

 

  1. On a Linear line of thinking about time things were “perfectly normal” and at another point things go hog-wild

 

Jesus- when speaking about the last days- speaks astonishingly as though if you blink you may see nothing spectacular concerning a certain place on the linear-line on “the last days.”  

 

Jesus said: “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark;”

 

Did you notice anything in Jesus words? People were living very normal lives in the last days across the planet and they were just like the people of Noah’s day. They were getting married, eating, drinking…everyday normal life! Where is the Hog-Wild in that? It is such a normal that the god of this world sprays a mist across the eyes of his-own souls when they hear the Good News. Kinda like the boiling frog experiment.    

 

 

Here is the thing about time- we view it and speak about it as Linear like we say the sun rises and sets when in all reality the sun does neither (literally)

 

Somewhere on the time-line Paul warns us regarding that on a specially & specifically poignant place on the time-line: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” 2 Timothy 3:1 Perhaps some thought that when Messiah (Anointed from Heaven King) came he would set everyone straight during their time. Perilous according to the online Google Dictionary means: “full of danger or risk…exposed to imminent risk of disaster or ruin…” Do we have to live full of fear that disaster and danger loom around our next corner? My Bible says: “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

[The Fear of God- a respectful respecting of the One True God as Three Persons and God in three persons- is the beginning of Wisdom. There is a Wisdom that is not from Above.]

 

To be continued – be encouraged- He has overcome- Take His yoke upon you and learn of Him.

 

Jesus Christ Stands me up, stirs me up, fills me up, centers me up, gives me hope, joy, peace, and empowers me up or infuses me with power to think slash do as He would speak, think, and do.

Words that Really Matter

If you are a teacher, trainer, a person who gives presentations, are raising a child or children, manage the HR department…these are words where you want to ask this question: 

 

Is the person or are the persons I am dealing with A: 

 

Tactile Learner;

Visual Learner;

Auditory Learner?

How does he/she or do they best learn- by what means?

Concrete

Abstract

Representational

Which areas do I need to touch upon and be sensitive to in the learners life? 

The Affective Domain

The Cognitive Domain

The Volitional Domain

How can I reach this person or these persons by knowing something about:

The Roles they play in life

The Tasks they do on a daily basis

 

Major Chunks of the Students’ Lives:

Skills

Interests

Traits

Values

Types of Conversationalists

People who love to speak Nostalgically.

People who love to Describe features.

People who love to give descriptive Information.

People who love to use Body Language.

People who love to always say something Funny.

People who love to give Persuasive Speeches.

People who love to be a continual source of Humbly-Encouraging Speech.

People who love speaking Technically about their career or field of knowledge. 

 

All of these things make Information more relevant and meaningful if they are seen as bridges to the soul. If we just talk to someone who learns through example and is highly tactile in what and how they learn- what good is the audible then if it gets all the time in the world? 

 

Keep these terms in the back of your mind always. And have a motto to boot: “If I fail in teaching they will fail in understanding.””If we like the idea of students and all people everywhere learning from us- then we must employ an unconditional-embracing-of all that makes-up the particulars of the students.”

To What End God Orchestrates a Matter is Unfathomable at Times

To What End God Orchestrates a Matter is Unfathomable at Times

 

 

The Warp and Woof Outcome of the Randomness Theory

 

I fear I live in a generation like no other before that has embraced Empiricism and Materialism (in a philosophical sense) to degrees that those moments that present high-end odds for or against a thing happening (e.g. Now what would the odds be of a Canadian meeting a fellow Canadian from the same town in the jungles of the Amazon River?) have cut-off all ideas- clear or fuzzy logic- to even one thought of “God Ordained Providence” and has made moot the lyrics of a simple tune “He has the whole world in His hands.”

 

 

For some ‘unfortunates?’ (this is tongue-n-cheek in how Christians who adhere to Christ are viewed by some in the world in Such a Day as This) holding onto such a worldview (He is Lord of everything or of nothing) this all universal-ish-ness sounding has now become a mental disorder or disease of the mind to many inside and outside of The Church Universal in Western Civilization.

 

 

It all sounds like the title of a book F. Schaeffer wrote: Escape from Reason. In the world of Humanism (a philosophical term) “randomness” is supposed to be the whole woof and warp behind the Tapestry of Outcome (what you see, hear, touch, smell, and experience). It’s a random thang you see- this 21st Century Metaphysical (philosophical term) infectious cough because in places in Western Civilization the family of God has shrivelled leaving behind only edifices. Conformity of thought on some keystone or deep-as-deep questions can get have left us with random-matter + time down to a quirk, quark, or speck has led leaders there when universities were what I call purging- empty handed and with a canon-less-canon (an ultimate measurement of a thing as…).

 

Somebody once said on the radio things begin with a man, then become a movement, move onto a monument and end-up being a mausoleum. I believe the Lord Jesus hinted at this in his teaching and Paul, when speaking on the question of, “who baptized you?” as though there was a hierarchy when there wasn’t. Really, day after day after day American currency utters these words to all peoples- “In God We Trust.”  

 

What are You doing with The Pendulum Effect?    

 

Every generation has a pendulum effect going on and right now the pendulum has swung with the very hands of some of my brethren holding-onto “Time + Matter + Chance” permeating their world and how they live (with astronomical numbers or odds for this outcome we call life and the cosmos) firmly in place to explain The Metaphysical (a philosophical term asking speaking to the origins of the universe or universes).

 

 

Sure some of the academicians permit a god behind it all guiding and directing matter and pushing for synergistic moments in the sludge turning into the Proterozoic Period with one cell this and that floating around. They feel they must explain “what is” in these terms because they can’t reconcile in their thinking “what is” explains “what is” and the sciences only make it more radically louder and more clear. The radiation-bombarded Tsetse Fly still can’t reproduce no matter how many times it mutates. This search for creating other species continues to cry-out at the gates to the city.

 

 

 

Either God is Sovereign Over Everything or God Over Nothing  

 

It’s my belief and the belief of some other theologians that Everything- down to a speck- is being orchestrated by an Infinite-Intelligent-Personal-Reference-Point (He is There and He is not Silent). I believe the influence the prior (Time + Chance + Matter) view has upon Christendom has toned-down Pneumatology from many pulpits into a pointless nihilism of despair that there even is an “existential” and “universal” (experience-able) true-truth anywhere. And that is where my Emperialist-ic Materialistic some brethren, some friends, and some acquaintances stand on the matter. And perhaps- most aren’t even aware at all what their position is. And if they can’t figure-out what differentiates Christians from the Watching World- it is no surprise to me that they would dwell in their own world of conformity of thought to the world at large. With certainty I am no acceptation and in no lesser need of a Saviour from powers that be which are anti-Christ.    

 

My Calling as a Believer in Jesus is to say at Least This Much  

 

This profound truth about history has now infected how Exegesis (interpretation) and Homiletics (Homiletically Honed Tools to attempt to give an accurate interpretation) are done and many go the way with these souls down the path that just eventually concluded that since there was no Empirical Evidence for the Charismatic Gifts over time (and some have even gone further dousing Supernaturally Providentially Orchestrated events which they call ‘coincidences’ or ‘misunderstandings’ and ‘dangerous’) with a sense of almost an Empiricism many say, “we now have a complete canon of scripture and so see feelings and experiences as dangerous to the Church” (I agree but don’t agree to this statement, “with a complete canon we have no need of the Gifts of the Spirit on top of being won by the Spirit, Sealed by the Spirit, Baptized into the body of Christ by the Spirit, Taught and Filled with the Spirit.”)

 

 

Dr. Lloyd-Jones as noble as the Bereans once said of Experience: “Let us realize then the profound character of the experience. This is not light and superficial and ordinary. It is not something of which you can say ‘don’t worry about your feelings.’ “Worry” about your feelings. You will have such a depth of feeling that for a moment you will imagine that you have never felt anything in your life before. It is the profoundest experience that a man can ever know.“[Speaking of an encounter with the Living Christ by the Ministry of the Holy Spirit]

 

 

 

 

Chalking-up Everyday Experiences vs. Just Saying “God Appointed”

 

Chalking-up everything called “the Act(s)-ivity of the Holy Spirit” as just existential-nonsense or as another coincidence or living in the land of “Maybe God is doing something here or maybe He is not” smacks of Humanistic-Materialism leaning on Empiricism. I’m the last person to say, “we don’t need science to forge ahead.” Or “We don’t need doctors and so have a right to refuse treatment” in an amoral matter. Many are simply an act of God’s Grace that they even exist unto God and their Fellow-man.

 

Don’t Chalk-up everything as Coincidence “My sheep know my Voice (the Lord Jesus)

 

 

I want to encourage the reader- “don’t chalk up everything to coincidence because the more I get to know God and His ways and the more time I spend with Him alone in prayer the more I know in my heart of hearts what Dr. Lloyd-Jones and others encourage us in to be true as true blue to. When you are dealing with an Eternally Wise and Powerful God who is Personal- is there really “coincidence” or “randomness” or a Written Word without the Living Word Jesus Christ in action by the power of His Holy Spirit? Oh that this generation would come to the altar and drink from the well and experience (the Lord Jesus) through the word and the Spirit’s work to Affirm the Truth in us by ways of experiences Jesus has beforehand prepared for us to be part of from Eternity.
