Stir Them Up Stir Them Up

 

 

Stir Them Up and Stir Them Up and Stir Them Up untilthe Spirit of God is plainly manifest among God’s “remnant”- His people- according to Acts some believers in Jesus still remain without the Holy Spirit in a certain manifestation to serve (having already been Wooed to be saved)  

 

 

In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 the Lord says,

 

“Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.”

 

I knew a man in the spirit who had these words 3-D in his spirit: “I’m going to take _______ home.” It hit him like a ton of bricks in the sense it had clarity. The man to be taken home was a godly man- a faithful steward for the Lord and Saviour- Jesus Christ. It almost seemed within just moments that man was snapped away during giving service to the Lord just a few days later.  

 

 

God says in Amos 3:7 (Old Testament before Jesus Arrival): “Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”

 

God says in 1 Corinthians 14:1 “Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.”

 

If you feel any of this is just Arrogant-Chatter like a monkey- chattering on and on and on about something that is of man’s vain imagination- consider what Paul told Timothy (Pastor Timothy- and beyond that I know not) concerning spiritual gifts:

 

2 Timothy 1:6

 

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame (other translations say, “stir-up”) the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.

 

[In my hundreds and even thousands of little blogs which out of sheer fatigue in not wanting to go back and edit each one, I discovered it is easier just keeping a small number of quasi-up-to-date posts on my blog. I write all manner of writing and some of it is so metaphorical and some of it is so literal when a word or topic just “come to me.” To my knowledge I am no prophet- am commanded to desire the gift- but, I’m not walking around saying, “thus says the Lord…” that is- unless I’m reading a Bible verse that says, “thus says the Lord…” I am simply Me To the Glory of God and whatever that means… but, oh reader- don’t comb every word I say for some prophecy or as though all the works are. Only God- first- me- second- and some people who have experienced me knows the truth and me speaking of the future as words- as moved by the Holy Spirit- 3-D and so are ‘set-aside’ to be written or spoken.

 

If you have been following me many moons you will know that I said a long time ago that the “i” like iph… the viewer would go larger and now- guess what? You know the most exciting and adventurous experience on the planet is serving not as King on this planet or over it- the greatest and most exciting thing is Intimately Serving the King of kings and Lord of Lords. “Stir up” your spiritual gifts brother or sister in Christ or ask someone filled and led by the Spirit as He manifests Jesus’ many gifts (Ephesians 4:8) lay hands on you and pray for you for it says of followers of Jesus in the Book of Acts: “When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.”

Really- little to say- God knows and tis sufficient

 

 

Source: “Some lady with 1 M was going to try to help you to relocate until ‘the cult’ as you call it slammed, diced, and decimated you as a cold-blooded abuser. We know you- we know that there are people for you and people severely against you almost at any cost. Do you have any idea why?”

 

Me: “Honestly- I swear I’m in some kind of vortex with ‘give us the empirical’ and in my own personal knowledge of psychology, sociology, and anthropology everyone knows the axiom is “as close as you can get to science”- being, what I have to offer some really cold empiricists.” Because of the nature of man and the nature of bias in men/women- one could say that much of what is sold to us as pure science may not be what we were led to believe.

Anyway- I go about my Christian walk trying not to ‘enflame’ anyone- so- maybe source that one ought to be double checked. It sounds far-fetched.

The Order of things in The Christian Churches World-wide

 

 

 

A Two-In-One? Written by a Born-Again-Evangelical-Confirmed-Roman-Catholic (I don’t want to get too fancy on the names- I’m simply a Spirit born and Spirit led believer in God-Manifest in Flesh- Jesus the Christ)

 

[I start all my premises with this fact: The Catholic Church believe all the books of the Holy Bible were inspired and infused with a lively power for the good news to cause New Birth. The Evangelical Church to the majority me thinx believe just the same About the Holy Bible.]

 

Many have no idea what the offices of the Christian Churches are, what the gifts of the Spirit are, what the Fruit of the Spirit is, what Love is according to the NT (NT Bible)slash God the Great Teacher of all things, and which- in all of this diversity- is the greatest- being- Faith, Hope, and Love- the greatest of these love.

 

 

Fruit of the Spirit

 

 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

 

 

The New Testament’s Definition of Love

 

 

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

 

 

Gifts of the Spirit

Romans 12

 

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith;if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

 

Corinthians

Manifestation-Gifts (they just manifest in a body like the wind)

 

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

 

 

Office-Gifts: office simply means a position in the order of things in the churches or Your God Given Calling

 

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.28 And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues.

 

 

 

[For my “oh you of little to no faith” friends- the humanists with their manifesto, or the secularists with their majority and up against a logic that doesn’t say- “The many are always right.” I want to ask:

 

 

  1. How would you know if someone had a gift of the Spirit or not?
  2. How would you know if someone had the fruit of the Spirit?
  3. How would you know if the person you are speaking with does or doesn’t have a God given Calling slash Office in the churches world-wide?
  4. If you are a Christian, how do you know or not know what your calling and gifting of the Spirit is?
  5. Are you saying:” Of the hundreds of millions of Christians around the globe where every miracle and answer to prayer are being claimed as fact are really to be merely chalked up to ‘Coincidence.” E.g. Just because X-person is W he/she has no calling nor office nor gifting of the Holy Spirit and I chalk it all up to Insanity or Coincidence- whatever X says in the name of God. Yet, suppose a handful of others said X-person always had an obvious office and gifts of the Spirit. What makes your claim true and theirs false? Quote/Unquote 

 

I’m going to develop this in a more list-like lay-out later and I know- it all sounds so Cerebral – but, it’s not- it’s a faith as simple as that of a child’s faith- these things I speak of.]

Daily Dose of Spurgeon: July 24th

“His camp is very great.”—Joel 2:11.

ONSIDER, my soul, the mightiness of the Lord who is thy glory and defence. He is a man of war, Jehovah is His name. All the forces of heaven are at His beck, legions wait at His door, cherubim and seraphim;, watchers and holy ones, principalities and powers, are all attentive to His will. If our eyes were not blinded by the ophthalmia of the flesh, we should see horses of fire and chariots of fire round about the Lord’s beloved. The powers of nature are all subject to the absolute control of the Creator: stormy wind and tempest, lightning and rain, and snow, and hail, and the soft dews and cheering sunshine, come and go at His decree. The bands of Orion He looseth, and bindeth the sweet influences of the Pleiades. Earth, sea, and air, and the places under the earth, are the barracks for Jehovah’s great armies; space is His camping ground, light is His banner, and flame is His sword. When He goeth forth to war, famine ravages the land, pestilence smites the nations, hurricane sweeps the sea, tornado shakes the mountains, and earthquake makes the solid world to tremble. As for animate creatures, they all own His dominion, and from the great fish which swallowed the prophet, down to “all manner of flies,” which plagued the field of Zoan, all are His servants, and like the palmer-worm, the caterpillar, and the cankerworm, are squadrons of His great army, for His camp is very great. My soul, see to it that thou be at peace with this mighty King, yea, more, be sure to enlist under His banner, for to war against Him is madness, and to serve Him is glory. Jesus, Immanuel, God with us, is ready to receive recruits for the army of the Lord: if I am not already enlisted let me go to Him ere I sleep, and beg to be accepted through His merits; and if I be already, as I hope I am, a soldier of the cross, let me be of good courage; for the enemy is powerless compared with my Lord, whose camp is very great.

 

July 24 

Let the nations then look in shock over N. Korea

 

Let the Lord of hosts bring out the Ramparts- break down His  enemies within N. Korean walls. Let the nation- yes- let the nation of North Korea to shake, rattle, and tremble. Let the nations who look upon her gasp in shock, and awe, and wonder. Bind their weaponry- throw off the bowmen. Allow nothing of their venom to torture by night nor by day.

 

 

Be swift Oh Lord- be swift to open-her up by earthquake. Let the waters be restless over her oh King of the Flood. You make her to her knees from the top down in great need oh God of our Salvation. Make her to need grow so exponentially that the king and worshiped one of animistic tradition choke on a bone as he is fattened-up for their great and dreadful day.

 

Let their subs remain under the waters forever and let those who surrender come-out forthright and turn against many waters leaving no Singularity or Monolith of control over her whether upon the earth or under the deep blue. Let the chain of command be broken left, right, and center.

 

 

Let the soft beds for high ranking military weaponry-brokers of ISIS and Al Qaeda be no more. Let them be caught by their feet running and tied to the ground as it were- and let the dream of their Islamic state pour out of their eyes as they fall to sleep. Elect oh Lord Jesus- elect by dreams, visions, signs, and wonders through the written accounts of you and your acts and revelations- those in N. Korea who are to be your emissaries. [Even so come Lord Jesus- come! It is Well with my Soul]

Ya Think and Ya Thought

 

 

 

Ya think & thought

 

1

 

Ya think things are going to turn-out to be a certain way and then- flip- Murphy’s Wild-Card Variable hits your table. A good reminder- “one of the prerequisites of a good missionary is Flexibility.”

 

Ya think that your love of art is just a matter of “when I feel like it.” Then you realize, it too is like a marital love demanding commitment and “do.”

 

Ya think, “all things can be done tomorrow.” But then, your whole life is flashing before your eyes in the face of unapproachable light.

 

Ya think, “I felt so ashamed I was so wrong.” But, next time you won’t be will ya now?  

 

Ya thought, “It will be three taps of my fingers” and it was- three taps. Now after a while your brain chemistry almost demands everything be three taps of your toe or fingers and you wonder, “is our world about to give birth to a steady stream of souls with ADHD or people with a knee jumping up and down at the computer desk?”

 

Ya thought your bed was made for thinking; but when you discovered it wasn’t, and that it was made for sleeping- “He restoreth your soul.”

 

Ya thought that Carbon-Dioxide was killing the planet until you learned that without so many parts per million present all the time that plant-life you treasured would just shrivel up and die.

 

Ya thought you could do a certain thing or things 365 or even 355 days of the year and then some part of your body or soul just snapped. You were given a constitution to be adept but not eternal.

 

Ya thought, “now that I will never see or experience this or that ever again- I should have taken more photos and kept better records.” But, hey! It’s not too late to start now on whatever lays before you in this adventure we call “living” and having lived- remembering.

Your Train is a Comin

 

 

Your Train is a Comin

 

It’s a time and place where you just need Mo

But for what you need ya gist get a closed door

These dayz you’re friends are just letting ya down

They ask, “whaz-up with that face and that frown?”

 

The glass is half empty and the glass is half full

Depends on who ya talk to it might just be bull

One minute the applause paints you as a clown

The next, “the boo” paints ya as jist a creep in town

 

[There is a time and a place where

ya just gotta get up off the ground

Your train is a comin

Can you hear the sound?

It’s your train

Ya just gotta go

Where it takes you ya just don’t know

Where it takes you ya just don’t know]

 

It’s partly up to you what you make up yur reality

It’s not jist something ya jist learn on TV

Sometimes it’s just opportunity a knockin at yur door

The Timing; the irony; the lyrics and the chord

 

Lift up your head you’re salvation has come

Shining as brightly as the brightest of suns

If ya jist say, “yes” to that Train

Your disposition will never be the Same

 

[Chorus 2 X]

Pithy Things

 

 

Pithy Things

 

[Only 576 Words]

If you ever decide to take-up- as I did over 5.5 years- a flurry of thousands of short-writing reflections, stories, poetry, song-writing or whatever- remember 500-600 words if you are not a “whole book” writer except that you can compile your short works under one theme.

 

 

 

The kicker isn’t so much the enemies you knew you had; it’s the friends you have who turn out to be real stinkers. Source said: “Ed (somebody) turned ‘it’ back on.” “I can only imagine source.” My God knows the names of every star- he knows your name and how to humble and exalt.

 

 

If world-wide earthquakes are on the rise, you can be sure that tall behemoths are on the rise in thinking through the issue of building a structure that can endure a fairly massive earthquake.

 

A number of some of the greatest writers said this, “I hate writing.” On many levels in this season of my writing- me to.

 

The faithfulness of purity is taking one’s skills, talents, and abilities in a continuance of developing them and applying them for some good purpose whether there is financial remuneration or not.

 

If I truly have the unique kind of writing which is “a love for writing”- this love- if rightfully seeking the remuneration of finances or reward can still never stop believing, being patient, hoping or just gives-up because it is a God given love of writing.

 

Right now I am working on writing something that requires an Infrastructure of a “Progressive Hierarchy Structure” or Hierarchy-Infrastructure. That begins with a Base or the Basics as a platform and moves to Secondary Structures and then a third (each either building on one another or it can all be like a swirl of important variables attaching themselves one another as they are added). I see nations with no real infrastructure and then getting blasted with war and so wiping-out the needed variables to even build a nation in the first place. With Hierarchy-Infrastructures a bottom-up triangle is the norm and with a swirling pie-chart with interactions and intelligent-bindings going on- due to the nature of an explosion of variables – the swirling-pie-chart (not a wisdom like an accordion moving in and out- breathing- as some have described our universe). Yet- though (pause)- the Accordion can have a place somewhere.

 

As The Holy One advances towards The Great and Dreadful Appearance- That Day and Hour- there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother- an Advocate who shed his own blood to save souls. Jesus- mankind’s Highest Priest stands between The Holy One and Mankind.

 

A century later and I now fear after the indoctrination for a century of highly positioned humanists and secularists that we will no longer be able to say, “there are no atheists in fox holes.” Rather- the tides seem to have created a whole new Axiom, “the trenches are filled with atheists, secularists, and even humanistic-agnostics.” But, even so- serving and protecting is still considered an honourable thing- especially peace-keeping missions.      

 

 

 

Can a Volcano hold its breath forever- till end of times? Or can Tsunamis- Many Waters- repel powerful earthquakes taking place in the deep blue or even on land forever and a day? In some way our body is as a Volcano holding its breather or as a Tsunami that is moving towards the trigger in God’s Timing? Is the Almighty’s arm too short that it cannot save? Isa. 59:1
