The Plant

con·cil·i·a·tion
kənˌsilēˈāSH(ə)n/
noun
  1. the action of stopping someone from being angry; placation.

    "he held his hands up in a gesture of conciliation"
    • the action of mediating between two disputing people or groups.




The words used and their morphed meanings within a given culture are often "Assumed" well known, clearly understood and applied accordingly, yet can words loose their ability to influence over time by way of over looking their misuse supposedly for the sake of peace? 

And how does anything subtley change over the course of time?

If the meaning of words are  misappropriated, for what reason and to what 'End"? Why isn't the same consideration applied to the interpretation of the words of God? 

Do the rules of "Familiarity and Contempt" somehow bleed over into this realm where the medium of words are our guide? The type of familiarity that also assumes everyone who's party to a conversation also knows what's being said in any given moment without having to try and trust reading 'between" the Lines as if a gauntlet? 

And how damaging is this mindset proving to be as if 'Painting" word pictures with a "Broad Brush"? The use of a broad brush where "Details" over time seem to fade away into "Oblivion"?

And what is the "Remedial" course of life all about unless everything that's forgotten or over looked more often due to lack of use and practical application?

What would You conclude would take up residency in this world if EVERYONE saw themselves either Worthy of being saved or those who have ZERO need of a Savior? What type of speech would willingly lend that same potential to a type of thought Life that has become the "Steering Committee" of this world?

I used to think that people who rejected  "My personal" perspective of God were simply mad at God for some undisclosed reason.  In turn I would simply choose NOT to take their hostility seemingly being aimed towards me personally and would simply "Move on" to higher ground.

Then one day the thought hit me, were those who killed Jesus truly "Mad" at the person of Jesus OR were they mad at Jesus because of the of Authoritative posture Jesus claimed to be speaking from on behalf of (God)?

Obviously the religious "Steering Committee" during His visitation couldn't deny the Miracles Jesus conducted because too many other people witnessed those same events. The type of events that could NOT be easily explained AWAY...

Have you ever asked why the religious leaders of that time seemed mad or agitated with Jesus personally? 

If Jesus' visitation were today, who do you think would be more upset with the DELIVERY of His good news? The church or the POLITICIAN'S?

The question should be who best defines a "Politician" and whose "People" are we attempting to discuss being in need of "Governing"

 Was it because the "Savior" (Messiah) they had envisioned arriving was also based on what the majority had chosen to "Believe" was NOTHING like the Man Jesus The Christ they were momentarily being FACED with? Basically, they didn't 'See" this One coming in the shape, form, fashion or CAPACITY in which He did show up, did they?

Do believers in Christ today Truly realize "How" they've postured themselves whenever "Asking"  (uninvited)  someone  if "They" can pray FOR them? Why NOT spend the eternal value of  time and energy God has and is investing in the saints in their being "Prepared" for when those who are outside of Christ DO come and ASK for the eternal benefit of the prayers of the "Sons Of God"?

And what would the truthful expectations of any civil minded people be for a One Man S.W.A.T team who was sent into a hostile environment "Unequipped"? Sent in with no real Intelligence, badge, gun, shield, helmet or body armor? The type of environment where there is rarely any visible evidence of a threat that's also REAL?

How would You and I evaluate a Hospital that only temporarily stabilized a patient brought in without curing them? Never fixing the underlying ailment and only throwing aspirin, ointment and band aids at the underlying and deadly Wound? I think every major city has one of these type of Hospitals where someone who's fatally wounded would never want to wake up and find themselves there!

Exactly what is a Doctor declaring when one says, "There is NOTHING more We know to do"?

What about a SWAT Unit sent in only to find themselves confronted by Dysfunctional individuals who are BEING compelled by ONLY GOD knows WHAT and WHY? And if ONLY God Knows, how can ANYONE else participate in their RESCUE? Once again what is the danger in assuming EVERYONE is on the SAME page of ONE self governing type of "Doctrine"?

And what is the purpose and intentions of God if not the "Revelation of the Sons of God"? And the "Type" of dispensation those sons have also in advance been prepared, designed for and with the intent that has also come from "Who"?

Did Jesus heal or pray for individuals unless they'd gone to Him and "Specifically" requested His  intervention/interaction in a divine "capacity"? Exactly what did Jesus have access to others didn't?

To what end does praying for everything but the salvation (reconciliation) of ones soul accomplish, in terms of gaining the world only to loose ones soul? Exactly how important was the discernment of Christ whenever we do see people coming to him in need? 

The fact that He did know by way of discernment not only what was being asked of him when they did come to Him, but more importantly "exactly" what was it that Jesus had access to that drew them to Him?

What value is there in being considered righteous in the SIGHT OF GOD is there while in This World? Is it ALL about the Individuals confidence in God or SHOULD it at some point be the unselfish consideration of a CHILD of God who has taken ownership of their True Identity that ONLY Christ can "Unviel"?

What do you suppose would manifest if those who do SEE a believer as though someone considered to BE righteous in the SIGHT of God? As if placing a sense of Trust in someone who's considered to Be In Christ?  As if a separated soul who's trying to look into the Kingdom of God from the "Outside"?

Is there a TRUE reason why the supposed Outsiders refuse to acknowledge the Disciple's OF CHRIST today for WHO they ARE in the sight of God? The same Disciple's whose lives look much like the rest of the world?

I personally don't see Christians being hated or persecuted today because they DO reflect Jesus and His type of authority within the Spiritual Realm. Why? Because the Spiritual realm has NOT been recognized for ALL that it is According to WHAT the God Given Authority of Christ declared resides in such a place!

Simply put, God who is SPIRIT is primarily being recognized today as The God who is In Heaven who's merely a part time (Visiting) God over the events of this worldly Realm! Only when it's convenient do men seem to want to Call On the Power and Authority God did invest in the Name Of Christ Jesus.

Think on it this way if there ARE NO DEMONS (Spiritual Enemies of God) or spiritual activity in this world, who would SEE it as if a NEED for DIVINE WEAPONRY that ONLY God can make available?

Exactly how is ANYONE somehow SEEN as if suffering for the sake (advent) of Christ who instead is seen as if at a PARTY?

Is there a true reason why the prayers of ANYONE's are NOT seen as reaching the Ears of God? Would it depend on WHO you're asking as does most ANY type of response in a world that's being over ran with "Flippancy, Ignorance and Unbelief"? The "Net" results being what? Arrogance?

John 17:15
My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.

NIV

Why exactly have Believers in Christ been instructed to 'Make the words of God Attractive"?

How easy is to ONLY see the parts of Gods word which suggest the WHOLE WORLD has and WILL be saved, yet when it's convenient the same ones will IGNORE who Jesus said He did NOT pray for in terms of the "World'?

Exactly who are the THEY Jesus protects from the evil ONE? Exactly how do the "THEY" know with certainty the one who faithfully delivered the ENTIRETY of word God sent to them also came from the person of Christ and NOT someone else?

What would someone ASSUME if their displaced spouse in some far away place sent a Five page letter, yet Only Three of those pages arrived?

John 17:8-10
They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. I pray for them. I am not praying for the world , but for those you have given me, for they are yours. All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. NIV

Exactly what type of a divine reward could righteous man Possibly have in his/her possession that someone might otherwise be in NEED of? Confidence? Trust? Yet either one because of WHAT and WHO?

How much more refreshing might a sinner prove to have become if knowing there is a sense of Hope in that God does hear sinners under the RIGHT set of conditions and circumstances? Both of which having been prepared by who and for what ONE reason?

To then truthfully reflect on our own words of assessment whenever we approach someone with a specific topic such as God or praying unto God on their otherwise perfected behalf to then realize "Immediately a Wall Went Up'?

Eph 2:14-18

For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations



His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. 

NIV


Whereas today I also believe that The One True God who is "Lord and Savior of all mankind" has been 'Misrepresented" in so many different fashions it's no "Real" wonder as to "Why" conversation about God are as though listening to some "One" as if hearing from two different people or maybe a " Bi-polar" personage who's speaking. 

"Who" exactly is being suggested is also effectually communicating whenever any two people reach the moronic impasse which suggest the two people will "Agree to DIS-agree? Only then to HONESTLY try and reflect on what Jesus said about His presence which does MANIFEST in the midst of those who DO agree?

 Here's where many go astray when they see the word ANYTHING you ask for. God also says in another location asked for in "Accordance with Whose Will"? The type of speech which also agree's with personal prayers such as "Your (Gods) WILL be done here on earth as it IS in Heaven"?

How then can a person submit their prayers unto God with any real EXPECTATION for things on earth to somehow shadow Gods will being done in Heaven? Especially if what takes place in Heaven is ONE BIG MYSTERY that has everything to DO with the WILL OF GOD? The only difference being a physical address that's been overly "Emphasized"?

Apparently Jesus didn't just say it once, right? Why else would He have need of "Deploying" the word "AGAIN"?


Matt 18:19-20

"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."  

NIV



Is there a TRUE reason not only WHY a person could be MAD at God but when even further looking into such an emotion where someone somehow makes an ASSUMED well INFORMED decision to remain MAD at the Lord of heaven and earth because of ALL that He has NOT done for us?



Contrary to popular analogies God is Not an ONION whose layers are peeled back one layer at a time despite Him having created the Onion nor is He the one whose in a Proverbial Box many like to try and Gift wrap as though He is. 

No that would be more fitting to suggest of you and I whenever we have reached a "Pre-Mature" conclusion(s) about ALL that He is AS God and Teacher! Amen....

There's nothing "New" under the sun to include "A NEW world Order"

What type of a new world would any world become if Only the creator gets to decide what survived and came "Out Of" that same world. sw

If the main concern of salvation is selfishly seen as one day going to heaven, who then will also see the need to bear "Fruit that will last". sw

How hard is it to try and picture a Dungeon for all that it is when everything around it is screaming 'Paradise". sw

The divine maturation process who can define? And as such without the divine and continual leading of "The Holy Spirit". sw

Is there a much deeper reason why God says "Blasphemy" against the Holy Spirit is the only "Unforgivable Sin"? The same God who is the only One who can give the Holy Spirit? The same God whom allows his person to be brought into question and abused in many different ways. sw

The righteously inspired heart of father should hope to One day be able to declare what type of words to his Children? Words that nearly insist and sound like these having been Well Received for the same reason? And what does this same man offer and declare to his slaves and hired hands who are of and only see things through the voice and filter of this world?

John 20:17
Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father , to my God and your God.'"
NIV

Without having truthfully considered 'Why" Jesus was rejected, persecuted and put to death,  who can find encouragement within the thoughts and expectancy of being treated the Same Way? Especially when suggesting we've believed being made perfect comes by way of having suffered in the Flesh?

Is there a real reason why a person would ever find it to be a need to have a "Plan B" or and alternative escape route should things NOT go as planned?

Mark 7:15
Nothing outside a man can make him 'unclean' by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him 'unclean.'" NIV

What if "Wisdom and Knowledge" were seen as these type of things which enter into a man as compared to what then "Comes Out" in terms of "Measuring" the 'Character" of all his "Doings" moving forward?

John 15:3-4
You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. NIV

What happens whenever some forget what the Kingdom looks like that Christ says is within those who do BELIEVE? Will that kingdom he describes also look like a Kingdom of Priest who reproduce?

When God said in the beginning to "Procreate" was he talking to his Children? His children who will also escape the realities of this World only He can define? Was God talking to the man made of FLESH or the Spiritual MAN He's birthed into this world who since indwells the "Flesh?

Exactly how can a man walk towards the Kingdom and much less recognize it as the Kingdom of God if this man can't see or doesn't KNOW what the inhabitants of that Kingdom Looks Like?

What is True Hope if something that can't be SEEN in WELL in advance?

John 3:3
In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again ."  NIV

Exactly what type of man can count himself worthy without also seeing WHY he has need of a merciful Savior?

And if being reconciled unto God also looks and acts like an Ambassador of God, where then can the righteousness of God be found in the earth if NOT by those who also Share the Good News?

Exactly what is it that would prove the worthiness of Christ in terms of being found to be in Subjection to Him as KING?

Is "Feeling" sorry for someone or trying to get others to "Feel" sorry for "You" because You do "Appear" to be suffering how a True King establishes his throne and Kingdom over which He does Reign Supreme?

Exactly who leads by example who does NOT follow their own Ruler who will also one day Measure ALL men?

2 Cor 5:17-21
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation ; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God
NIV

You ever had a child who claims to be "Innocent" after the crime committed who claims they didn't hear you "Tell Them" they shouldn't? To then hear come from Your mouth as the parents, "You should Know better because I've Taught You better than that'!

Is the child lying or telling the truth? As compared to WHAT and WHO? And where does the nature of any lie stem from?

Their body may have been physically present when you told them but did they HEAR YOU or choose NOT to RETAIN as if "Knowledge" what you told them? The question is "The Knowledge of WHO" and by WAY of having acknowledged whose "Authority"?

What happens whenever Authority has been "Stripped" from ANYONE? Why isn't being stripped as though looking upon their "Nakedness" in the truest sense?

Without OVER rating or out dating what you're hopefully about to read, how can you see what aspect of Noah was revealed? Same household, same drunken father, same rules, same subjective viewing perspective, yet what was the difference between their OUTWARD responses?

Gen 9:20-23
Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father's nakedness . Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father's nakedness .
NIV

There's NO other WAY around the Truth is there? Either we go through it like a "Fire" or otherwise unaware and often quite miserably remain on the other side of it?

Hos 4:6-9
"Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests;
because you have ignored the law of your God,
I also will ignore your children.

The more the priests increased, the more they sinned against me;
they exchanged their Glory for something disgraceful.

They feed on the sins of my people and relish their wickedness. 

And it will be: Like people, like priests.
I will punish both of them for their ways and repay them for their deeds. NIV

Hos 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge : because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
KJV


Rom 1:28
Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. NIV

1 Tim 1:20
Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme. NIV

Isa 42:5-7
This is what God the LORD says — he who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it,
who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:

"I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness. NIV

Have you ever wondered why most parents are Much harder on the "Eldest" child? In homes where there are many children that trail behind the "First Born" among the beloved of the Parents?

And if an ONLY child, who then would follow who? And who then would be hard on the parents the ONLY child follows?

If learning how to trust in the One "True" God is the same pursuit all men truly are interested in, how impractical then would "Incorrect Information" somehow derail, impede, or encroach upon this type of  endeavor?

The word "True" being the "Only" access point?

Obviously there are many different "Gods" within the minds of however many billions of people which populate this world, yet how many of those Gods deserve the entitlement of having been given the "Title" as the Creator?

I remember the first time I heard someone say to a child, "I brought you into THIS world which gives me the right to Take You Out if I want to"! That type of speech sounds more like property rights doesn't it as well a type of speech only a Creator should be entitled to?

Picture a child that comes forth from the "Womb" as if a score card in hand that only has a name at the top of the page. Does any child also get to "Choose" or have a say as to who their parents are? In terms of the child's perspective beyond having "Exited" the womb, "Yes" they do!

How can I say that some might ask? Once a child's "Mindset" has been "Developed" they can at some point "Choose to "Reject" their parents authority at any time.

However, prior to reaching the "Age" of this "Individualist" mindset they also have to learn how and make the "Choice" to continually subject themselves to the type of "Authority" they also DID NOT consciously CHOOSE!

They've (as are all men) literally been thrust/pushed out into a place where they now have to try and make "Sense" of this new World Order" they've since forcibly found themselves "Subjected"

In terms of a Master Plan, exactly what is the "Gifted" and "Divine" beauty found within the opportunity to try and raise children in the 'Way" they should be brought up? Wouldn't it ALL depend upon exactly "Whose" child it is that's being "Raised"? And who are Gods People even their earliest shape and form?

What is "Any" mans real "Hope" having decisively set 'Out" on a fruitful journey, who then should any man listen to as each makes their "Way" back to God?

If a person were to go to their bank, with the claim my account is in error, what common methodology would both sit down in order to "Reconcile" their differences? Would they use the same math or would one have to somehow create a NEW tabulation format to try and Prove their POINT?

What standard is in place where "Both" can trust the outcome by way of processing the SAME "Information"?

Rev 12:10-12
"Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Christ.
For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down.

They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; 
they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! 
But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! 
He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short."
NIV

That was then and this is NOW!

Have you ever tried to consider exactly who the world would have to blame if the devil didn't have a "Name" or "Title? Exactly how accurate is any archer without a "Target". sw

There should be fundamentals in everything and in every area a man looks to apply what God has given to each individually, whereas the consideration of Mankind who can begin to imagine what he is capable of under one roof. sw

Trust in God is such huge picture it can't be painted with one tiny brush nor can any part of that picture be comprehended with only a mere glance. sw

How does the renewal of the mind somehow participate in the divine order of the same type of "Repentance" God has in His mind? As such without preconceived Notions trying to override the mandates of God sw

Eccl 8:17
No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun . Despite all his efforts to search it out, man cannot discover its meaning. Even if a wise man claims he knows, he cannot really comprehend it.

NIV

Have you ever given much thought as to 'Why" God seems so "Opposed" to a "Lie" within the much bigger picture? Especially without knowing the END result ahead of "Time" as does He?

Exactly 'Who" is it that seems to somehow conveniently "Forget" or OVER look the episode where God Spoke creation into existence? All the above having been birthed from a mere thought in the Mind of God?

How many souls would you suggest are waiting for God to find them instead of the other WAY around the same old Mountain men have been sojourning for however many years?

And if God only fortifies the Plans He has for You and I how many keep Resubmitting THEIR OWN plans hoping that God will put His stamp of APPROVAL on those plans?

Jer 29:11-14
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile." NIV

Is there such a things as an "Expiration Date" on anything God has said?

John 5:38-40
You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life. 
NIV

Ps 111:10
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom ;all who follow his precepts have good understanding. NIV

I think everyone understands what "Murder" is, but how many have given much thought as to WHY someone commits Murder? Much less for the "First Time" as did Cain?

And to what EXTENT or EXTREMES will anyone "Go To" in ORDER to prove their POINT ---->?

Exactly what direction does it matter that any 'Arrow" points at without also considering if its been "Drawn" in a Bow or NOT? And what is "Potential"?

Everybody loves to dance with "Context" of a given situation, right! Especially if they're the ONE telling the story, but have you ever cross examined the difference between the words "Context" and  "Narrative"?

Sure, today you can go look the two up in a current version of Websters or Wiki, but what is the 'Expiration" date of those definitions before they too will No Longer be found acceptable within society that resist the Holy Spirit?

And without the evidence Gods words do illuminate, who exactly also KNOWS they're resisiting God or Not?

Exactly what does ANY man suggest to himself or others he alone knows? What should a man conclude "Picking up the pieces" truly mean as THIS same type of life is then handed to the next generation?

Who in this day we do share suggest they do NOT know what Truth is?

2 Cor 13:8-10
For we cannot do anything against the truth , but only for the truth. We are glad whenever we are weak but you are strong; and our prayer is for your perfection.
NIV

Eccl 3:14-15
I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.

15 Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account. 
NIV

In terms of ALL that imperfection is within Humanity, I've reached the conclusion in that given enough "Time" without the "Right" counsel, the "Mankind" will find a "Way" to deconstruct what God designed to function "Otherwise".

Coming from a mechanical background, I know a lot of people who can take 'Apart" something that was fully "Operational" yet that pool narrows when it comes to putting everything back together the "Exact" same way it came new in the "Box"?

Eccl 10:5-7
There is an evil I have seen under the sun , the sort of error that arises from a ruler:
Fools are put in many high positions, while the rich occupy the low ones.
I have seen slaves on horseback, while princes go on foot like slaves.
NIV

Are you in or OUT? Was God only writing to them or US? Does time and its unfolding somehow exclude or exempt any ONE generation above and Beyond another?

Could there be a REAL reason why God seems silent to some yet to others Loud and clear as a bell that continues to "Toll"?

A period of time that includes the end of the day and the morning after where a supposedly New Day "Dawns"?

And what if Today is "The day" that only ends when God does get up off His throne and shuts the doors to the Throne Room of His Grace?

Titus 2:11-15
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope — the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you. 
NIV

Put into effect "When"?

Eph 1:9-10
And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment — to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ. NIV

At what point do our thoughts, words and actions come into agreement as if under One head? Having come together under the reign of ALL that we as "Believers In Christ" suggest silently and aloud our heart confesses?

It's one thing to admit that God sent his Son into this world, but don't we also know and trust that man has sent a delegate to the "Moon"? Who is it that is not sharing the reason why in either instance? Especially if we don't really know (Believe) why?

To then conclude and try to compare our understanding of ALL that Love is and does to what men suggest 'Love is"? Is it any real wonder why the depth of the meaning of Love is so hard to explain to a stranger?

Is there a deeper reason why many look down on those who will not allow themselves to be held accountable for what they've "Done Wrong"? And why is it those same ones refuse to look up as if toward the ONLY reason why they've chosen to say and do what is right? Each having looked in a specific direction without also considering WHO has established the dividing line between those two considerations?

In terms of having done a study or a true investigation, at what point does a man cease to examine the (type) sins he's committed and only focus on what God has done well in advance of those sins? Having provided for and made preparations so that a person can discover how to maintain a pledge of a Clear Conscience towards God?

In terms of the manifested results of a spiritual "Maturation" process, at what point does a man cease to do himself harm? A type of harm that can only be realized (Believed) once the continuance of committing his body and soul to acts (of Sin) he's also confessed he knows deserve the penalty of death? And exactly what do the day to day mechanics of a "Self" fulfilling prophecy look like?

Have you ever considered our cultured court system in this way? What if EVERY single offense tried in this court resulted in the "Death Penalty"? Whether talking about Perjury, Petty theft or lying to the presiding Judge (sitting Court)?

To then truthfully try to reconsider "Who's accomplishing "What" within the entire consideration of sanctification and purification of their personage during the season of God's Mercy being Shown? Is it only one thing to admit we're weak? Considered weak without also reaching the agreement as to exactly WHO it is that does MAKE anyone to be STRONG in the Lord?

And who has truly been born AGAIN and that of their MAKER?

To those who have read the bible, confessed with their mouths that Jesus is Lord, had their external bodies washed in physical water in the presence of witnesses, have purchased and tried every motivational recommendation in the market place, why do you sense there is still something MORE that's being overlooked?

Why exactly WOULD anyone suggest there's NOTHING ....More as it pertains to God and His interaction with those He also LOVES? If being satisfied does have a specific Look", exactly who does it look like? When was the last time a man peered outside the scope of the relatively small sphere mankind inhabits as compared to the REST of the Universe which the same God also created?

Men suggest to themselves and others they're willing to search the Universe for the supposed truth, yet who's not examining EVERYTHING directly beneath THEIR own nose to include the heart as does the LORD? And who knows what's in the heart of man? God alone?

Exactly WHY do men hear what they ONLY want to hear and as a result fail to SEE what they have need of seeing?

2 Cor 8:16
I thank God, who put into the heart of Titus the same concern I have for you. NIV

My counsel to ALL men who have become satisfied with ALL they've somehow mysteriously become to include my person is CONTINUE to investigate God as if FOR themselves! Only then will a man see how hungry he is or NOT?

In terms of those in antiquity whom we're also BELIEVING by faith have already been there and done that and more than paid for the T-shirt many wear today, who then is without excuse in terms of what each man suggest he HAS learned? Not to mention exactly WHO it was that has also has taught each in terms of validation but also realize a discernible amount of change as the result?

 Exactly what are people holding onto in terms of walking in their FAITH?

I personally do NOT, never have and never will rob banks because of what I do believe ti be true, namely that I'll lose my freedom, yet what does that have to do with the offense against My God and Soul and how I SEE my relationship between the two otherwise? Is there such a thing as the Haunting of a mans soul? Not if you do NOT believe in Ghost!

In terms of those who also HATE excuses, why they should hate excuses and WHY the full wrath of God IS coming one day, what is Gods position of those who try and offer up an excuse or impede the eternal momentum of the truth? As if why some refuse to believe will some excuse them from the depth of meaning for "Every word that comes from the Mouth of God"?

What does a man then search for outside of the type of thoughts that suggest there is no God or ONE and ONLY One creator of ALL mankind?

Rom 1:18-20
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse .
NIV

Rom 7:18-20
I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do — this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. NIV

John 17:3
Now this is eternal life : that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. NIV

To then stand confidently that we have not only prayed in the same way but have believed what we have prayed unto a God who is able to bring to pass the fruit of our words which do suggest, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven"?

Have you ever wondered why anyone might find it as though a NEED for God to remain a mystery except when it's convenient? A type of man who rarely commits what he suggest he knows or is willing to admit to himself or others Why God does whatever it is He does. sw

How permitting does god become by way of God being a mystery? How does remaining ignorant somehow help Justify EVERYTHING God says belongs to Him? Who then can say with confidence what is right, wrong, indifferent or acceptable unto God?

Based on where you are now and all that you believe to be true as it does concern humanity to date, which is more likely to cause divisions among men, Good News or Bad. sw

Aside from Jonah, have you ever sat and wondered how lonely some of seemingly more verbose Prophets of God must have felt once told to GO somewhere and deliver a message to a specific person or people or KING?

The same ones who were more than likely going to reject not only the "Message Sent", but also the "Authority" in which the Messenger came? To then Honestly weigh today WHO enjoys "Rejection" and why the TRUTH does Hurt some more than others?

True knowledge is unforgettable, and that only because a Wise man refuses to forget where true wisdom comes from. sw

Taking a stand is one thing, whereas taking a stand outside the will of God ushers in exactly what in a world where everything is NOT visible or advisable at any one given moment. sw

And if a people are NOT able to discern who is being punished and those who are being 'Disciplined" because they are sons of God, who is proving to have been made wise by God?

Prov 3:11-13
My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline and do not resent his rebuke,
because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding,
NIV

As does the rain fall and Sun shines on exactly who on any God given day, where does wisdom lose it's rightful alignment in the matters that are important to God and man?

Prov 21:11
When a mocker is punished, the simple gain wisdom; when a wise man is instructed, he gets knowledge.
NIV

Have you ever tried to apply the principle vein of wisdom archived below to bible story of "Jonah" and those he as a prophet of God was sent to in Ninevah?

The contemporary understanding of Ninevah is better known today as Mosul (Iraq)? To add to that, the average thought pattern of Christians today being what? Christians don't miss the mark? If they don't for what reason? Will it prove to be because few allow themselves to be shot from the Bow Of God?

The contemporary Envoy today being sent with sense of some degree of Authority bearing the name of a country who also declares "In God we Trust" then proves what?

Do people struggle with what God word says or do men struggle with the type of thought(s) that might otherwise come and in turn Interfere with what they think is RIGHT from one moment to the next? Those type of thoughts that are also delivered by others who firmly believe they too are sent of God?

As if having ALSO invited EVERYTHING and EVERYONE else who want to come along on the ride of your life that seemingly has no hand rails as if the direct result of having BELIEVED GOD?

The words "On the Rebound"? Do you know of ANYWHERE God uses these type of words to express what Forgiveness was intended to accomplish? And that without knowing WHY the type of thoughts that DO represent "Authority" is the ONLY type of voice who can be HEARD when True Mercy is needed?

How far has the otherwise invisible forces of rebellion advanced if a mans first line of defense is seen within his own household. sw

Especially when Pain, Suffering or God forbid persecution are seen waiting on every street corner for those who are 'Willing" to believe God?

Having read the writings of and about the Christ or maybe the Apostle Paul is there any one thing about the person of either that has become obvious to You? What common tether do you see between them or NOT?

The telling of two men today where we who are alive today ONLY have what was written about them in the absence of their physical presence? Things written about them (two types of men) in order to somehow discern the condition of their Hearts in whatever circumstances and in whatever time frame they occupied?

Both also having been recorded saying, "Follow Me" in some fashion?

Have you ever stopped to think WHY the office of the Prophet of God is should NOT  be thought of as dead today despite what some might suggest?

In terms of a "Narrative" that's also TRUE, Why are there so many teachers and so few leaders who exhibit the type of power ONLY God can ordain? Exactly "Who" might benefit from killing off or doing away with ANY office God gave to the Body of Christ (Church)? Especially when living in a world where nearly everything is the OTHER persons fault?

That is also to suggest the prophet of God who only believes what the 'Living Words" of God have already declared? Does being task with obligations considered to be beyond the NORM or the capabilities of mere men make a person Weak or Strong? Even more the thought of being seen as a Fool for the sake of Christ and all that He came in order to accomplish?

Exactly what advantage is their in being able to not only hear God, but also see the results in having also been heard of God? And what does God say about the effectual communication of ones Faith in Him (Christ)?

Without the clear understanding as to "Who" was intended to benefit from this same line of communication between God and Man, how does Godly authority speak anything to or about having been Reconciled unto God? Especially when considering ALL Authority in Heaven AND on earth has been given to the Christ who saves men for a reason?

Exactly what will become of those who for all their lives resist the divine renewal process of their minds? Those who had their outer bodies washed, yet their minds remain even more hidden than before they were externally washed? Having well developed their deceptive craft in order to continue in order to DO what as was before?

If being saved and going to heaven is Your only life long motive, you'll more than likely neglect to hear God instruct You to GO to someone specific and deliver message. Does being seen as a hypocrite prevent the spread of the Gospel or compel a man to change because of what that man has preached so well?

And what does the Church NOT "Know" because the devil is a liar and has been since the beginning? Especially if those who've sincerely believed with ALL their hearts are NOT capable of Lying or deceiving others?

Does it require more energy and forethought to BE a good liar than it does BEING totally transparent? And what does a tongue lashing truly feel like if Not persecution while occasionally allowing your "Self" to be whipped by those who've known you most all your life?

If you truthfully ever want to find out who loves in this world, dare to make drastic changes in your life! Most will find exactly how much those changes somehow affect everyone AROUND you and their sense what brings them "Comfort"....Just, think what being exposed to a "Know It all" as was Christ who came in order to destroy the works of the Devil?

The type of TEACHER (Rabbi) from whom there's no where to hide, No where else to go should YOU want to KNOW MORE and your every thought MADE known and placed on the table while being tasked with dealing with those same thoughts (reasoning)?

Is there a True reason why within the circles of religion thoughts of God are being illustrated as if nothing more than One big word Problem that requires logically being 'Solved"? And those who want to be seen as if having the answers are the ones who not only scripted the wording but are the same ones who've found a way to Pay the Price for a persuasive "Loudspeaker'. sw

Exactly how did the prophets of Old come into possession of what we hear or read (study) about and choose to "Believe" today? Or NOT? Either God told them and they believed and made known what God said or He (God) didn't!

What seems to be missing today that might cause men to suggest God is One Big mystery? A God who closes or opens doors that can't be shut unless He does it? A God who does make a way that is "Undeniable", yet many continue to deny His personage is alive and sits on His throne in Heaven where those same ones claim their going?

To then consider WHY some suggest the TRUTH is said to Hurt? Is there a true difference in God knowing His own thoughts and a type of man who tells himself he does NOT know what's in the Mind and Heart of God?

If a man does NOT see or understand how and why he was taken into "captivity", should that man als expect to see the need to be brought OUT of that same type of "Captivity"? 

Waking up one day as if out of "Nowhere" to the sound of a cracking "Whip" where you make bricks for the benefit of someone else is an AFTER thought, yet what leads any man into this or ANY type of reality is 'What"? "Revelation?

And if a man Believes that there is NOTHING more beyond his physical death, who needs revelation in terms of an Eternal Hope that also Begins and Ends when? 

If a promise is ONLY for the age old "Them" we've shared this world with, who then has need of "Believing" in the One the some of  "THEM" are not able to 'See" with their physical eyes? The difference between the two which then reveals itself to BE what?

Jer 29:11-14
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back from captivity. NIV

Prov 3:3-4
Let love and faithfulness never leave you ; bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name 
in the sight of God and man. NIV

Acts 21:10-14
After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. Coming over to us, he took Paul's belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, "The Holy Spirit says, 'In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.'" 

When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, "Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus." When he would not be dissuaded, we gave up and said, "The Lord's will be done ." 
NIV

Acts 19:9-10
But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way. So Paul left them.

He took the disciples with him and had discussions daily in the lecture hall of Tyrannus. This went on for two years, so that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord. 
NIV

Reading the words of God alone does NOT get a man into Heaven, whereas being Born again and that of God is the Only type of reasoning that will cause to manifest a hopeful (filled) son of God who continually studies as he anticipates what His Father has said is true and WILL come to pass as he waits for his own adoption/Inheritance.

Is it possible for the heart to Abide in anything without ears that can hear what is true in any given moment? Ears that hear WHAT, if not the directional oriented words of the One True God whom also created You?

Committing something to memory is one thing, whereas having something brought back to your mindful state of being in a "Time of NEED should also suggest what in terms of WHY you forgot to begin with in your plea of "Innocence"?

Exactly how much has God invested in those who claim "Christ In You"? Just as equal who is denying what God says is this place within those who have believed, while trying to somehow measure the capacity of ALL that is THERE and otherwise available? And if ONLY when needed? Who then gets to decide When and why if they only wait for the Heat of each moment?

John 14:25-27
"All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.  NIV

No one escapes reality or the net results of same when it arrives....

Acts 7:51-52
"You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!
NIV

I will be found by you

"Oh to be Young again"! How many times in life have you heard that before? Is it just one more of those type of things said under our breath without having truly considered what has been said in the full scope of eternity?

How about this one, "If I had it ALL to do over again"?

Without some type of contrast what is anything in this world? Exactly how important is it to Know The Type of business God also conducts in the earth, without also knowing exactly what and "Why" He chose to invest ANY part of himself in the entire "Undertaking"?

Exactly how do you somehow measure the full content of the word "All" having set aside the amount of reasoning that's involved within the type of Hope that's also fully invested in finding out what "Truth" is? 

Without having truthfully considered "Who" the of youth of all humanity has wandered from, who has truly considered the type of thoughts that can and will lead to the only real conclusion that explains the eternal heights from which the souls of men have fallen from. sw

"What's in it for Me"? How many have truly contemplated not only what selfishness should 'Look Like" but also have studied what God says "Self" should "Hopefully" look (search) "For"?

Ps 25:12-15
Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD?
He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.

He will spend his days in prosperity and his descendants will inherit the land.
The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.

My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
NIV

Have you ever heard these type of words come from YOUR own lips, "Things JUST didn't go as planned"? Those type of plans made without first consulting with the ONLY one who can make ALL plans also reach their eternal potential?

Who is the type of man who has failed to recognize what God has said that is also TRUE far above what ALL others preconceived plans may have concluded? The type of plans that have no room for divine participation much less the type that cross the finish line only by way of holding tight to the coat tail of Christ?

Jer 29:11-14
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart

I will be found by you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile." 
NIV

Rom 3:3-4
What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God's faithfulness? Not at all
Let God be true , and every man a liar. As it is written: 

"So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge."   
NIV

Here's another fiery dart many carelessly put to flight with the tongue, "You're a Pervert"! Do you still need context or a glass of water to wash down this type of accusation? Especially when it's been truthfully considered the type of tactics the "Accuser" of the the 'Brethren" uses?

When was the last time you observed two wrongs that went on to equal what is "Right"?

Lev 19:15
"Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly. NIV

I don't know you nor do I know those who will read what I write, yet what i DO know is the one who Does Judge ALL men is NOT the Respecter of .........?

One last phrase, who has heard someone suggest something that sounded abrasive where YOU then turn and asked them, "Were you Talking to Me"? To then truthfully consider who the proverbial "Us and Them" of this world truly are....

John 8:42-47
Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 

You belong to your father, the devil , and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies

Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don't you believe me? He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God. NIV

To what exactly does any man compare himself to in terms of somehow gauging his performance? If pleasing God is part of a mans spiritual foundation, who then has overlooked the importance of a Good performance in the sight of God? Especially when admitting that ONLY God is "Good"?

How many have truly considered what an "Empty" building looks like? Much the same, how does someone weigh the value of their "Time Spent" verses someone who see portions of their life as though "Time Served"?

What comes to mind whenever something has been considered to be "Empty"? How does a piece of "Property" find it's most "Profitable" tenant if it's been listed on the market as "Multipurpose"?

John 7:16-18
Jesus answered, "My teaching is not my own. It comes from him who sent me. If anyone chooses to do God's will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. 

He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.
NIV

John 2:22
After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.
NIV
