Does God have enemies?


Some suggest the war between Good and evil wages on, yet in the light of today how hard is it to find a meaningful amount of people in One area who can clearly articulate either position as if in agreement?

Are there times when it seems like both sides are wearing the same "Uniform"? As if both sides have become convinced they're positioned in the "Righteous light"? Here's your 'Sign" as some might suggest....

The biblical image here could be the weeds (tares) that grow among wheat

What happens whenever ANYTHING does not have a given "NAME"? Does that include the inhabitants of invisible spiritual realm?

Have you ever considered why Jesus pressed the demonic to the point the leading voice speaking identified itself as "Legion"? Though THEY were many (demons) the voice speaking on behalf of the many spoke for the rank and file who were then forced out and into a herd of pigs.....

Was the reason that He asked the name that Jesus did not already know the name of the spirit OR the fact Jesus IS ALWAYS the TEACHER? Why is it so difficult for most any believer to overcome the ANTI mindset?

The mindset of the "God does NOT hear my cries CROWD"?

Why does any ANTI crowd also NEED more members if not for the sake of the POWER OF THE CROWD. sw

Is this blindness because many can't see because the affects of the CROWD have dulled the INSIGHT of the Spirit? A MOST definite NO!

Why some might ask? Once again "Here's YOUR sign!

Rom 8:14
......because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God .
NIV

Much like when Jesus made known at the tomb of Lazarus "For the benefit of the people".

And what might prevent ANYONE from the entitlement (Power) of Knowing their prayers are heard of God?

And what makes ANY man or woman RIGHTEOUS in the sight of God?

Without knowing the CAUSE for ANYTHING how is it even possible to somehow CONFRONT the spirit of the issue in the moment? Especially if that same spirit has no NAME?

One must always remember in their prayer Life no matter how HOLY or HUMBLE one might assume their words sound in the ears of God.......to GOD belongs ALL Glory and Honor.

James 4:1-6
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?

You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God.

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives , that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. 

You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God?

Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely?  But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:

"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." 
NIV

How relevant this next question will prove to be depends on several factors, but my point is Humble as many try to define Humble today is NOT what God acknowledges.

The ONLY thing a person can do with regard to 'Being" humbled by the Holy Spirit is to Listen to the Holy Spirit. Believe me when I say this, YOU will know when the Holy Spirit is the ONE speaking.

Even more so when God and your newly acknowledged enemy soon come visit you shortly there after and ATTEMPT to steal from you what God has given to you!

Your NEW enemy truly really is not new, but an otherwise "Old" friend (relative) who has since turned on you.

Much like a jealous sibling who will uses MANY ugly tactics, because your NEW realized enemy wants what God has placed (deposited) In You.

Humble is NOT how You and I define Humble. Humble is something ONLY the Holy spirit can cause to manifest within a person.

There is NO fixed formula for being Humble in the SIGHT OF GOD.

There's No set time line where having been humbled has finished its Good work. Granted there are many convincing ACTORS in this world who are fully invested in their attempts made at obtaining the patent on "Salvation".

The TRUE believers IN CHRIST are NOT called to follow false Teachers who are "IMITATORS" hence why the presence of Christ in so many also LOOKS so different!

1 John 4:18
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.

In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.
NIV

Tears alone or tears combined with prescript declarations don't make you humble. The Holy Spirit is the one who brings you the uncontrolled tears of Joy.

Hot off the press and from the Hymn book of Solemn Praise many will sing unto God are these precious words.

Ps 119:111-112
Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart. My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end. NIV

I'll Give you a biblical example, but first ask your SELF this, Is a person considered Humble because they've declared themselves HUMBLE?

In the following passage (I've also rechecked in as many as 5 translation) are the commentary of the author who also recorded the book of Numbers.

Exactly how does someone (Moses) write for the sake of God to include the lively and likeness of their own person? More so  if that same Person has been appointed OF GOD to also tell the story?

What would a jealous sibling sound like who might hope to refute what was recorded ABOUT Moses? When or IF a personality were to ATTEMPT to undermine someone who does belong to GOD, what are they also seduced into DOING?

Are these type of siblings now stuck with having to go to great lengths in order to somehow refute that Moses did write the first 5 books of the bible...Good luck with that and may God forgive them for they Know NOT what they DO!

Num 12:3
(Now Moses was a very humble man , more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.)
NIV

And if the One who authored those same books is also as confident as his words sound, I too can only hope that I and You can somehow aspire to mature to the same "Mindset" as if OUR mutual Goal and Trust In God!

And who is the God sent Poster Child as if the image of the most MATURED son of God?

Is Godliness only the matter that suggest, "Well someone has to do it" OR should it be that God desires His Joint heirs to be brought to maturity to the place of "Confidence"?

And where might that be if NOT the day of Judgement where the sons of the Living God are revealed not only for WHO they are, but for the sake of WHO helped them reach Maturation?

John 11:41-42
So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, "Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me."  
NIV

Mark 5:8-9
For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you evil spirit!"

9 Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" NIV

Is it possible there is POWER in a name and there's power to discern between God and Evil because we DO know with certainty what certain "Names" and "Titles" were intended to reveal?

Is it true in a mans righteous efforts to relate to God half of his battle's will prove to be trying to discern who is for or against him?

And if those type of questions are ANYWHERE to be found in the House of God at what point do those same things become our SIGN as if believers who are not only In Christ but also those who are possessed by and have the mind of Christ.....Form this day forward why not let it be known that PINK elephant in the room does have a NAME?

Where I and many other do go astray is that it is forgotten it is the Lord who will bring all things he has told You back to our remembrance, yet also remember that if you and I can't hear His voice how can He?

It is Christ who makes right the wrong, it is his power that cure the illness, heals the marriage, raises the dead or whatever the misunderstood consideration is.

Whenever it is brought to question in terms of who's doing what under the terms of participation in the realm of life and Godliness it must always be remembered that it is the Lord "Who will raise him Up"!

1 Cor 15:17-19
And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.

Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.  
NIV

Provided the needed circumstances come those who belong to this world WILL leave you for the next most desirous thing.

John was given the title as the greatest Prophet to have come from the womb of women. John also said what, "I must decrease so that Christ might Increase". I went looking for this personality in other area's in recorded biblical history. You know who I found?

Joseph the adopted personage that helped watch over the maturation process of Christ.

How do I know? For me personally "Who God trust I also Trust"?

I Tried to study the limited details of his recorded participation in the life of Christ in the words of God. There was more said of Mary than Joseph.

What was said of his (Joseph) person was also ALL that I needed to hear and see as if a living example of what John was describing in his own decrease!

God did say it is NOT good than man be alone... Amen? But it was also said by way of Gods spirit "If God be for us who can stand against us"...Praise God

P.S
The word uniformity is nothing new, yet I believe the defining God like character of that word is getting so 'Close" its going to eventually require sudden movement on the part of this giant (One spiritual man God is raising up in the earth) in order that it's presence can be discerned.

Stand by YOUR man!

Honesty being ONLY everything it's eternally worth, have you ever posed the question in the boardroom where God does role call, "Is there ANY danger in having accepted ONLY partial representation of "Gods Word"?

As is anything that's considered "Incomplete", what usually prevents ANY type of "Needed" results from being REALIZED?

Is there any REAL danger is viewing ANYONE from a worldly point of view?

Only later finding that "Regret" has since decided to revisit the conscience?

Have you ever trained as an athlete for an event with every ounce of your being only later to be "Disqualified"? And who does the Apostle Paul remind us of prior to his own personal trainer showing up on the road to Damascus?

Who does the presence of satan (evil) if NOT something that resembles a fallen Angel? Do you find it easier to SEE the devil in the details of humanity above and beyond the GOODNESS of God?

And who is it that has FAILED miserably due only to what is lacking that ONLY God can provide?

The type of "Gifts" given to the world or to the Church?

And how might the precise reason for the discerning of spirits TODAY also serve the children of God in the earth? Or for that matter any other gifting God has given to the Church for their relevance within the BODY (one spiritual man) God is also assumed to still be assembling in the earth?

Is there a deeper reason why Jesus emphasized that ONLY God is GOOD? Did He say this as though it is IMPOSSIBLE for man to somehow Do GOOD works? And exactly what is IMPOSSIBLE with GOD at the "Helm" of ANY vessel?

What if the next time you hear or think of someone as though they are somehow being TOO spiritual, truly what is being suggested and as such ONLY the words of God can clearly define?

That this person has LOST connection with the HEAD? Does God fail to acknowledge those who are TRYING? Or does God reward those who diligently SEEK Him?

And how does God view those who've STOPPED TRYING to be what everything else in THIS world might suggest that God is NOT in any given moment?

And why did Jesus come to His own, yet his own did NOT receive Him? Is there guilt on both sides of the Isle? Are we talking about the Hatfield's and McCoys or the the children of God who are opposed to something else God also created?

Which is worse in terms of being unexpectedly bitten? The Dog whose tail is wagging while eating or the reality that sets in should that dogs food unexpectedly be taken from him?

What about the mindset of a type of person who claims to see the devil perched on every other fence post verses someone who suggest God wouldn't manifest his person is such a seemingly LOW position?

To then weigh the thoughts that do concern the presentation of the Son of God who presence was found in a Meal Trough in a facility designed for "Sheep"?

Is there a "Primary" reason WHY it would seem ONLY the PREACHERS of Gods word are able to also HEAR from GOD? And what is the FRUIT of a disciple who's also been sent?

And who by NOW should also be TEACHERS if God did have and hold any type of expectations as if the direct results of His Children that have reached maturity? As if by design whom also conduct His business in the earth?

And what is an Angel if NOT also the image of a messenger or ministering spirit sent of God? What type of image also depicts a spirit that is willing encased in flesh that is weak? The same type who has truly assessed having compared apples to apples as if seen in the eye of THE father who is SPIRIT?

Exactly how bright does a blazing FLAME appear to be in the sight of God?

Col 2:18-19
Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize.

Such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen, and his nonspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions.

He has lost connection with the Head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.
NIV

And who would look to somehow extinguish a flame if NOT those who have need of the cloak of darkness? And what is encouragement if NOT the flame that's been fueled or Fanned?

If there is an image of someone who's also "Looking for God", what does that image also "Look Like"?

I don't know if you've ever been asked this type of question before or NOT, but IF God and the devil are both believed to BE spiritual beings (unseen in this realm) how can anyone suggest the devil is in the details and NOT GOD?

What is discernment if NOT for the sake of somehow seeing or hearing what God is doing in any given moment or NOT?

Yet if the physical presence of God can NOT be seen, how does this image of God who does see God somehow get 'Discerned" by the one who's looking for God?

Because I'm NOT an expert in the LAW, and because God is the only One can ACCEPT those who do belong to Him I am NOT able to answer for you or anyone else.

What I also understand though is this....

Luke 11:52
"Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered , and you have hindered those who were entering." 
NIV

I also know there is a "Word Picture" issued of of GOD of the type of person who also FORGETS what they look like after gazing at their reflection....


Num 14:5-12

5 Then Moses and Aaron fell facedown in front of the whole Israelite assembly gathered there. 6 Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes 7 and said to the entire Israelite assembly, "The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. 8 If the LORD is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. 9 Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them."

10 But the whole assembly talked about stoning them. Then the glory of the LORD appeared at the Tent of Meeting to all the Israelites. 11 The LORD said to Moses, "How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the miraculous signs I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they."
NIV


It's a challenging thought, but have your physical eyes ever directly gazed upon Your own physical presence? We have only observed a "Reflection" or a captured image of our presence! That is to also suggest just short of an out of Body citing of our personage.....

It's one thing to have read the words of God in terms of duty, obligation or maybe as though an assignment, yet if you walk away from Gods word without a clearer understanding of the TRUE perspective of God, what have you somehow "Studied"?

2 Cor 7:9-10
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.
NIV

When was the last time the spirit of the words "Looking for Love in ALL the wrong Places" managed to stir "More" than just a type of untitled something within You? As such while making an honest attempt at weighing "The Glory of God"?

 When was the last time you encountered the person whom you feel has the "Hardest Head" in the world? This same type of person who's since been brought to their (Self) "Knee's" by way of God ordained 'Suffering"?

And who are those who are NOT discerning the righteous cause of any mans suffering in this world? Is another mans suffering also "None Of YOUR business"? And what type of business does Your heavenly Father also get involved IN?

At what "Point" does any type of message sent to YOU somehow "Lose" it's meaning? Does Your message that's been well received somehow loose it's value ONLy when its INTENDED recipient has also received SAME?

I'm not talking about Memorabilia or "Keepsake" item(s) you've stuffed in some empty shoe box we take out every 5 or 10 years in order to reflect upon same?

What I'm talking about is the type of message that's proved not only to be brimming over with self proclaimed fond memories, but full of clearly God established mile markers? Life changing and mindset altering God centered memory's?

Life changing message to also suggest a type of change that hasn't stopped changing you since you and those around You who did "GET" the message? And as such because this message is also the type of message intended for those who are "Willing" to be bought and brought to "Mature"?

As if something that has been MADE out of NOTHING?

Matt 25:28-30

Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' NIV

And where is the address where there is no LAW where there is also NO MERCY SHOWN?

Rom 4:14-15
For if those who live by law are heirs, faith has no value and the promise is worthless, because law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression. NIV

If it were understood that it could take a life time to understand the depth of Mercy as well a Righteous Judge who interprets same, at point does any mans life become "Meaningless". sw

Exactly what are the spoils of a war that's been fought and won? What does the fruit of True Victory look like once "Realized". sw

In Ancient Greece, victorious athletes were presented with laurel wreaths to wear. They were, and still are, signs of great accomplishment, unless you start resting on them.  (History Revealed)

Exactly how does the word MEANINGFUL somehow translate into whatever it is we also ENJOY doing most?

Exactly who is it that is SPOON feeding the saints today?

As if those who are doing the FEEDING also know that if the infants they are feeding were to somehow grow Up, they'd suddenly realize what in terms of exactly WHO it is that is also DOING the teaching?

And when was the last time you heard or read of someone whom God considers and continues to acknowledge as if an INFANT? As if those who claim they either forgot the "Objective" or it was the "Dogs" who ate their "Assignment"?

Those who do NOT consider themselves to be SPOON fed, exactly who's making that assessment or NOT? 

How many who are also considered to be spiritual ADULTS also rely upon the CHILDREN in their homes to prepare the "Nutritional" meal everyone in the household CONSUMES?

Exactly how laden with "Sweets" would you suggest those same meals would routinely prove to be if that were the case?

And how many things that pertain to this world also run parallel with the Spiritual things God then puts to use in order to teach us what we have need of KNOWING about Him? And who's ignoring what today?

Surely there is the Golden Rule in the doing unto others as you WOULD have them do unto YOU, yet is this a "complete" understanding that is without a FULL awareness of ALL that God has said and WHY?

And what happens whenever ANYONE journey's through this life if ONLY to be heard is ONLY but a dream or mystical notion? Heard "Maybe"? Yet HEARD by "WHO" and "WHY?

Is the only "Way" to ensure a healthy appetite by way of "Starvation"? Or being TASKED with obligation and preparation for "Spiritual awareness" (discernment) which then requires they type of spiritual "TEACHING" only the Lord can provide?

Is the glass only half full or empty because mankind is doing the 'Pouring"? And who is the One who also GIVES the Holy Spirit?

And exactly HOW frustrated were YOU the last time you went in pursuit of THOSE who have believed EVERY WORD that has come from the MOUTH of God and NOT just some of those words?

Only to find what?

Your version of SELF being or getting even MORE frustrated while doing the same things over and over AGAIN? Again and again while also trying to convince self a thorough "Investigation" has been attempted having looked only into not only the will but the Living Will of God?

The type of living WILL of God that also more than participates in the THINGS of this world?

Just think if it were TRUE that a man is ONLY as GOOD as his LAST "Deal"? At what point would such a man begin to suffer from the major 'Set Back" brought on by way of what he has believed to be TRUE?

What type of Spiritual MAN finds enjoyment in the limitations of his mortal "Body" destined to realize its decay? Is it the BODY that hopes in the Lord of HOST? Or the Mind of The Spirit within a man his soul also follows?

Rom 8:18-27
The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration , not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
NIV

That being asked, "How many are proving they are presently "Satisfied" with their OWN findings as to ALL that Love "Is"? As if somehow having "Measured" Love and found it to BE incomplete and/or not worthy of pursuing further as if there's MORE?

Maybe having ceased "Pursuing" the purest sense of the word "Love"?

At what point does LOVE also COMPLETELY understand that it IS better to GIVE than Receive? Enough that LOVE does become the GIFT that keeps on GIVING?

And what type of person forgets that when they water another they TOO will be WATERED? In terms of motive do YOU know of ANYONE who only waters others with the LEAD in intent of being WATERED? Watered by WHOM though and in WHAT WAY?

And what does it suggest should one find disappointment? Only that they've relied upon what and "Whom" based of what they also suggest they also KNOW all too WELL?

And exactly how painful are the thoughts of "SELF" somehow dying a slow death so that Christ may not only RISE but even greater  LIVE within?

Only later finding yourself without (void) the type of reasoning as to WHY it seems that YOU never seem to be receiving the SAME in return? And exactly WHO is it that also examines AND knows the hearts of men?

DO those who suggest they're LOVING also know what the divine difference is between a manipulator and a True GIVER? What happens when a man accdepts he can ONLY receive from the Lord?

Are you also LOOKING for "LOVE" as if LOVE is if LOVE is primarily about ONLY how YOU feel?

At what point does Love cease from BEING more than a feeling and MORE to do with what YOU KNOW to be TRUE?  

True in terms of what truly does causes anything to "WORK" (function properly)?

Why does it take some people longer than others to find ANYTHING as if the "Desired" results are EQUALLY available to ALL who are 'Earnestly" searching for the SAME (answers)?

That to include the fact God did choose to use men in order to participate in somehow bringing the FULL affect (impact) of His words from Heaven into "This World"?

And how is it any type of opinion could possibly somehow affect the "Intent and Purpose" in God having sent His word to the inhabitants of Earth? Some might suggest holding the line, yet how many have lost sight of having Dropped the proverbial "Ball"?

Many seem to be comfortable struggling with the "How" God managed to accomplish the clean transfer of His spoken word from one realm to another, yet how many of those same individuals are truly more opposed to WHY God did?

And without understanding WHY God did, how can any ONE also begin to believe HOW God accomplished same?

There are some who "Choose" to believe and Interpret the words of God as if there's only one relevant verse (John 3:16) which happens to be ONE of my favorite verses. Second only to John 11:35.

But let me ask this, what would the results (evidence) also look like if John 3:16 were ALL that needs to be heard FROM GOD in order to INHERIT "Salvation"?

Would that "Interpretation" look anything like as if the WHO any ONE else would then SEE claiming to be the  representation (ambassador) of Gods word that is also ALIVE and ACTIVE...Today?

Especially so if the behavior seen today by those who are claiming to be Christians TRULY did define the type of CHRISTIANITY God intended same to LOOK LIKE?

I once read a excerpt from something the well respected "Mahatma Gandhi" reportedly scripted. It said something to the effect of,

"I was once given a Christian Bible and read about a man named Jesus and those who were willing to follow Him. He went on to say, "I almost became one of them, that is until I met one'!

Sounds wise and very "Profound" doesn't it?

And what does the eternal "SEED" of God look like once it has taken "Root" and began it's life cycle? Does it remain simply a "Seedling"? Does it germinate and begin to "Sprout" after having put its roots down?

And the NET result of that life cycle being WHAT? The reproduction of "Fruit" that will last?

And what is ANY type of "Word picture" that is without THE accompaniment of the comparative "Picture"? Has God failed to provide the flawless supply of "Images" that do explain what the intent of His words could somehow be compared to?

Though seemingly seeing ALL these same things God also supplied (to include the image of mankind), isn't Mahatma's summation also being critical of ALL he too (as a mere man) failed to "Hear" and as the result 'SEE"?

Did he fail to SEE what the narrative of God does go to GREAT lengths in order to explain? If you answered "Yes", exactly WHAT did He as a man also FAIL to see as God intended?

Ganhdi may have met some ONE, yet as is always the RIGHT question, did he too meet the wrong ONE? And what does the work of a Master Builder also LOOK LIKE if NOT like the craftsmanship (work) of an "Apostle" and/or an "Evangelist"?

DID Gandhi even make it past the FIRST depicted image as God has illustrated in the parable of the "Sower and Seed"?

Was the "Seed" assumed to have been affirmed planted in Him (Gandhi) done with care, attention to detail and discernment only the Guidance of the Holy Spirit can provide?

Or, was the seed "Supposedly" simply carelessly tossed along the dry ground as might some "Tract" handed out? Days later to find its whereabouts strewn among the multitude of other colorful "Sales Pitches" the world offers?

And what is the DRAW of CHRIST without the absolute understanding of the origin of the OFFENSE? The mutuality of this offense that's since been FOUND to be in NEED of being SHOWN ....The Mercy of GOD?

And WHO is able to accomplish such a task who is also WITHOUT the "Mind of Christ" that does speak? Is the question DOES the mind of Christ NOT have an opinion?

Or is the question is the Mind of Christ NO WHERE to be found in this world as though it has NOT been MADE available, strategically located by it's MASTER and made easily ACCESSIBLE?

If there is any type of "Due Diligence" that must first have its way before the Mercy of God can be realized, at what "Point" does this type Mastery come on scene?

Prov 12:12
The wicked desire the plunder of evil men, but the root of the righteous flourishes.
NIV

Prov 12:11
He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding. KJV

If the ONLY answer is also ONLY according to the words of God, why did that seed NOT grow if it is GOD who sends the sower, the ONE who waters and TRULY is the ONE who GIVES the increase?

Because the devil also requires an ADVOCATE, who's since asking, "How do YOU know Gandhi did NOT go on and LATER get "Converted"?

My point in presenting same as I have is this, "I did NOT suggest that he didn't"! No more than I'm somehow personally responsible for saving every soul that's LOST and that because it the PERSON (spirit) of Jesus who does the 'Saving"!

But what I am suggesting is, "What GOOD is there that could manifest by way of that type of question" in terms of timing AND "Opportunity"?

Couldn't the same question be asked of Hitler, Stalin, those read of in Sodom & Gomorrah or Cain? If we were to read of CAIN we would also SEE what type of example and purpose his choice of disobedience SHOULD prevent today!

Is there a record being kept for future generations as to what we today have managed that does belong to God? If "Yes" how would it read?

1 Cor 10:11-13

11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come.

So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. NIV

Is it possible that said "Way OUT" is the only way OUT yet ONLY to be FOUND through "The Christ".

Is there a reason men see it as if a NEED to rewrite the divine narrative as if the contrived Doctrine that tries to thoroughly explain "Once saved ALWAYS saved"? 

If 'Yes", how then can there be words that also have meaning such as "Blotted" out when conveying images recorded in the "Lambs Book of Life"? Does man then himself needing to find a way to "Redefine" the words "Blotted OUT"?

Jude 11
Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain ; they have rushed for profit into Balaam's error; they have been destroyed in Korah's rebellion. NIV

And to later hear yet another prophet put to use that same "Example"!

Especially if representing the type of Hope that is somehow directly linked to performance in this world that may or MAY NOT have done a GOOD work?

 Especially so if YOUR own obedience unto God is also BASED upon what? What YOU, I or any INDIVIDUAL in the truest sense are willing to BELIEVE to be TRUE and having been converted to then go and DO likewise?

And what is ANY mans "Living Will" if that man is also NOT willing to Believe? Wasn't it Jesus who said" The work that I require of your is that YOU "Believe?

And IF what God has made known and if Christ was ONLY speaking to His 12 Disciples (Apostle's) while performing as the EXACT IMAGE of a Faithful messenger, is it still a huge mystery why so many today see the informative words of God as if only the prepackaged presentation being delivered found in "John 3:16"?

And why does any ONE scoff or sneeze at the very thought of "Re gifting"? Is it that they're being cheap if they were to r-gift?

OR is it more accurate that they would NOT be SEEN as if the ONE who actually provided for and gave the Gift?

And what does the EFFECTUAL communication of FAITH in Christ LOOK LIKE if NOT acknowledging every GOOD thing that is IN those who are IN CHRIST?

And what does parading around as if an Angel of Light also LOOK LIKE on any given day? He might have had the flowing robe role down pat, yet what was in his Gandhi's heart?

It's too easy to JUMP on the band wagon, just make sure the BAND is not only playing the RIGHT 'Tune", but also make sure the "Wagon" is headed in the right direction. sw

And what could it POSSIBLY sound like to hear Jesus think OUT LOUD when trying to express ANYTHING Only He seems to be able SEE?

Especially if EVERYTHING He (Jesus) thinks and speaks is also TRUE despite what every ONE around him may or may NOT be willing to BELIEVE?

Matt 11:16-19
"To what can I compare this generation? They are like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling out to others:

"'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.'

For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.'

The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners." ' But wisdom is proved right by her actions." NIV

Having read the passage you just read, how many stumbled over the borrowed use and gender specific's as stated (her actions)?

Acts 6:8
And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.
KJV

Exactly what would the spiritual evidence of those words LOOK LIKE in a true Life that also has shape and form in this world?

Is it even possible to remain relevant if only in "Part" if you're also hoping to somehow "Consistently" DO the will of God in every passing day? Somehow veering off to the left or right of the proverbial "Beaten" path?

And that type of path also being "Defined" by what type of self defining words?

And what is the greatest Lie ever told if NOT the ONE that is "Believed"? And what type of person is also willing to spend ALL day searching for their poorly driven FAVORITE kind of Golf ball in the TALL WEEDS?

I hear many stories people are attempting to tell others as if to the Glory of God who also suggest those stories are LIVING "Testimony" of the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT, yet what is NOT being heard is the type which places on FULL display a type of LASTING evidence.

And what does repeated "Back Sliding" gone on to 'Prove" if NOT....Victory IN CHRIST? And that Victory being realized without having risen from defeat?

What type of evidence could otherwise be left out of any story being Told about the required efforts exerted for the sake of a "Clear Conscience" towards God?

And what PART of any struggle Glorifies the "Absence" of the Holy Spirit?

Which also includes differing circumstances each and everyday "Tangibly Presents" as if  pointing directly AT the common desires within ALL men that require "Conquering"?

In terms of a true "Relationship" and its continual development, is there ANY risk involved in being away from another "person" for an extended period of time?

How many can "Envision" John (the baptizer) who's since found His person in prison for the sake of "Making the Announcement" of the Christ in his manifest "Presence"? This mighty man of God whom Jesus refers to in Matthew 11:11 as follows?

I tell you the truth: Among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he

From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it. 

For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John. And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come.
NIV

What happens when we do find ourselves "Drifting Away" from certain people even in this world in which we live and presently find our being?

I asked before in an earlier blog, is there any DANGER in considering any ONE from a worldy point of view? And who is that also gets to decide who's who in ANY world?

Is there a much deeper reason why men instinctively resist being referred to as ONE of the THEY or THEM within a conversation?

And what IF there presently IS no CLEAR Image (Abundantly Obvious) that also speaks for and on behalf of a RIGHTEOUS congregate in terms of "WE" the people (Children) of God?

Once again and if this is TRUE, which ONE is to blame?

1 John 4:4-6
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.

We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood. 
NIV

Are there ever times when we do find our person separated from the ONE we Love, yet NOT by way of our own CHOOSING?

Have you ever inquired of the Lord when John was in Prison why Jesus didn't go to visit John in physical form? Did the spirit of the Christ whom John had the privilege of ANNOUNCING visit John in ANY fashion?

I offer to you that He did! What did John receive back from Jesus? Mere words that were void or empty or words that were full of the same type of life that earned him the notoriety of being the Greatest Prophet known to mankind? That also being declared by WHOM?

What proof do you have some might ask? I invite you to examine more closely exactly what IT was those sent also SAW as PART of their testimony (report) given to JOHN.

Does the world dance around the ANSWERS it NEEDS? And what does the world say about solving problems as if somehow "Profound" studies have been conducted?

Don't be PART of the problem, INSTEAD be PART of the SOLUTION!

Matt 11:2-5
When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples to ask him, "Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?"

Jesus replied, "Go back and report to John what you hear and see:
NIV

And IF even the 'Elect" could be deceived, exactly HOW would You suggest their OWN deception would also PRESENT itself? And the origin of Your answer that ALSO finds its roots 'Where" exactly?

Is there something more that's missing that would otherwise SPEAK to the TRUE reason why TODAY many are HEARING yet are NOT able to SEE what it is they are ONLY merely hearing about? Namely the Kingdom of God that is also said of God to BE within WHOM?

Did Jesus SEND WORD to the SAME man who'd never physically SEEN The Christ prior to also BAPTIZING Jesus outside of the words He also BELIEVED to be TRUE that had been presented to him (John) by way of the Prophets whom preceded him (John)?

What do we usually discover when we do Drift Away from someone? Do we find that they've somehow changed over time? Do we also find that "We" too have somehow changed over time?

And the NET results of a HARDENED HEART that also catches WHO in their Lies is in WHOSE hands?

Those type of Lies supposedly ONLY self and those who are ALSO supposedly CLOSE to SELF are aware of?

I USED to chide with my wife whenever her emotions would lead her to the conclusion our "Relationship" was under going unfamiliar and unfriendly change(s).

I would ask her, "We're we NOT once madly in Love when we stood before God, men and his earth bound spokesman (preacher) when we took our Vows"?

She would more often than not would respond with, "Yes WE did"!

At which one of those POINTS does the ME truly RECONSIDER the WE in ANY household?

Is there an underlying message that requires being Mined in what Paul AS an Apostle attempts to MAKE available below?

2 Cor 12:9-10
9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
NIV

Exactly how many "I's" are there in the word TEAM?

Rom 15:5-13
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God's truth, to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs so that the Gentiles may glorify God for his mercy, as it is written:

"Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles;
I will sing hymns to your name." 

Again, it says,

"Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people." 

11 And again,

"Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles,
and sing praises to him, all you peoples." 

12 And again, Isaiah says,

"The Root of Jesse will spring up,
one who will arise to rule over the nations;
the Gentiles will hope in him." 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
NIV

Juxtaposed

Have you ever heard someone considered close to you remind you of something you've assumed you already knew ALL there is to "Know" about?

As if subject matter that's been signed, sealed delivered and permanently logged into your "Undeniable" and reliable knowledge base?

That same trusted ledger that's also been reconciled countless times that never seems to forget the additional layer of insulation all those other trusted opinions we've surrounded ourselves with helped validate?

And who can find the value that God has invested in words such as "Let God be True and every man a Liar" if the person of God is NOT well KNOWN in ALL that Has and DOES say?

Have you ever been asked, Is God Silent outside of the words "Man-kind" has somehow "Framed"?

In terms of the proverbial analogy of "Fruit" Christians are always tossing around how many would you suggest are willing to put that analogy to the "Test"?

Many people have "Family" pictures set in frames and have those same (valued) pictures on FULL display maybe on their "Mantle" or entrance table "Guest" get to walk past in their home.

Consider this though in terms of a litmus test for someone who's also prides themselves on being an effectual "Communicator".

If You have kids, try this sometime, Task the child with painting a "Picture of God" and despite what "You" think YOU see frame that same picture and place it among your Family Photo's and LEAVE it there!

Each time you pass by that "Picture Of God" YOUR child painted based on what THEY know to be True and try to put on your "Helmet" of hope as if YOUR salvation when You do?

With each passing year, continue to ask yourself, "I wonder what that picture would look like today if  I were to find the courage to have this child draw an "updated" version?

Is that the right perspective though?

What if you were to think on that scenario this way?

What if you ask that child to paint a picture of themselves the way YOUR child assumes they're seen in "God's Eyes"? To then honestly weigh the thoughts which suggest EVERYTHING in this world and Heaven above belongs to WHO?

And if ownership required more than a certificate would possession prove to be the sufficient evidence that only weighs in 9/10 of the LAW?

In terms of accountability, Who's "Framing" who in this Life? As if that frame "Work" has now become the narrative that does explain away the otherwise comparative NATURE of what many are also TRYING to SEE as if FOR  themselves?

To then hear that one lead in word (why) from that same voice you "Want" desperately to trust, "Why are they telling me this again"?

Did Jesus have a history of doing or saying things aloud that were NOT for His own sake? And what about you and I? How much of everything that does come from Our mouths truly is for Our own benefit?

What value is there in being able to see ANY type of picture in its 'Exploded View" without also knowing what you're looking for? Especially if it's 'Believed" only the devil is in the details in a world where "Contrast" has SEEMINGLY also lost its Voice?

Wouldn't it depend upon what a person is Trying to 'SEE"?

Here's a word picture below to "Observe", yet if the 'Same Way" is what you're wanting to see more clearly, to what do we compare that "Way" to?

I hear many people suggest WWJD as if a powerful analogy or word picture, but (if you can allow it to be asked of You) how does "segmenting" the person of Jesus somehow Hinder what aspect of His person you or I are also ABLE to somehow successfully "Walk, Talk and or DO" that same way?

And who's NOT asking, "How is it even POSSIBLE without His POWER being seen at work within our own person?

What is it about  ANYONE'S person that's makes it hard or difficult to mimic or duplicate? Especially so whenever someone begins to pick APART (dissect) that SAME personage in advance?

Are CHRISTIANS picking APART the person of JESUS as the CHRIST....OR are Christians in SELF destruct mode finding out they have need of picking not only themselves apart but others around them as well?

If you don't have an answer, I would suggest studying the warfare tactics a the "Sniper"? The type of warrior who Not only clearly understands, but has been Trained to DO. His type of training that is not only about accomplishing His mission but also about HOW to consider His opposition while in the Field?

What might the analogy appear as of a type person who only reads as if "Looking through a drinking straw"?

We hear people say, "You only hear what You want to Hear' as if closed Minded, yet how does that compare to the multifaceted suggestion as if the "One fits ALL" type of required response(s) needed to BE a victorious in this Life, "WWJD"?

And what does the label (Title) of a CHRISTIAN suggest if NOT ...CHRIST LIKE?

1 Peter 3:7
Husbands , in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. 
NIV

Airing it all out on a lighter note, I saw this hand written not on the back window of a CAR this morning. The person had hand written in relatively normal sized letters, "Do you follow JESUS this close"?

Short, sweet yet STRAIGHT to the POINT and on many different levels, Right?

John 21:25
Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
NIV

Luke 9:12-13

12 Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here."

13 He replied, "You give them something to eat ."
NIV

Philem 4-7

4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,

5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.

Searching for "Evidence" in the dark

At what point has the dynamics of Power been defined without first considering who that same power will prove to have served and "Why". sw

Have you ever watched one of those "Horror" movies where the teenager is totally oblivious to the villain lurking in the shadows?

You sit for 20-30 minutes watching their interaction and begin to find yourself slowly being pulled into the drama where these two animated figures do what they do?

You then find that you're so drawn into what you're SEEING you then hear your inner voice say, "Turn around you idiot, he's right behind you"!

The adult world is supposed to know these type of man made productions have their origin in the 'Imagination" of mere men, yet how relevant in terms of what a Believer "In Christ" suggest they also believe comes into play from one day in the supposed "REAL WORLD"?

Comes into play, but also under 'Who's" conditional influence?

As if trying to visualize what a great cloud of witnesses's might look like who've since "Crossed" over of ahead of us into the heavenly realm, what would your imagination also suggest that congregate might be saying aloud to you and I who are still here?

Saying to us as if they cane see things we can't presently SEE?

I read somewhere in the words of God He's mentioned the word "Noble" and "Ignoble Purposes"in the same breath (sentence), yet who gets to decide which is which in this world if not those whom God decides has become the Poster Child of either meaning?

I personally think its too easy to lose SIGHT of the truth in that not only do we HAVE an eternal enemy of the spirit NATURE, but also The entire ADMINISTRATION of the Angelic Host who belong to GOD are also spirit(s).

To then think that when we lose sight of these type of THINGS among many other considerations, is it also possible we also stand at risk should our thoughts of our God go the same "Way"?

I know some who've found out the hard way just how much can be discovered about a person by simply rummaging through there Garbage. Even by our own admission (no pun intended) we've heard said "One mans Garbage is another mans Treasure"

My question is, is there a spiritual "Image" of this type rummaging around in the garbage of our thought life that's allowed or maybe considered 'Fair Game" because it has been tagged and labeled as if sitting unattended to out on the curb in front of our House?

Think about in this world we'll hear suggest to a Tangible person, "I'm not letting you get in my Head" yet what does that mean? Is there a spiritual version of that as well?

And what is that differentiates the type thoughts of a "Mere man" verses the thoughts of the "Spirit" type within ALL men?

If God were the ONLY type of spiritual voice supposedly "Out there" knocking on the door of our mind wouldn't that prove to be "Great New"s?

But wouldn't that also by default prove that man is the "Gate Keeper" of his own mind?

Now let's revisit something else we say we already "know"? In the natural world in which we live and breath how does man view the type of person whose supposedly been "Demonized"?

I'm a slow learner, but how does anything find itself on the short list of God under any category?

 Especially the type of list which suggest GOD said, "Can't Touch This'? I seem to remember a Tree Once on that short list? I also seem to remember the Life within a man named Job that was NOT allowed to be touched?

Nearly everything else around this man could be manipulated and/or destroyed, but NOT what GOD considered to be His LIFE!

Stop and think to what has been said AND Heard by most people when it is spoken, "You've ruined My Life'!

Once the personage of a human has been 'Demonized" exactly how easy is for a large number to gather around to join in on the "Hate Fest"?

And what if the spirit that has found a home (even if Temporary) doesn't WANT to be labeled in order to remain FREE to roam, what would You suggest has become the LEAST 'Obvious" place to try and hide?

Think about the "Snake" along these same lines? Been around for quite some time , Right? And if memory does serve me the way I hope it was designed by God to serve, the snake was here before whom else? Doesn't make the snake older than dirt, but the man that came from the dirt? Very possible....

Now just think to how long the snake has not only survived in this world having been the "First" spiritual possession (Host) recorded in the bible, but also on the other side of having been thoroughly "Demonized"

 The very type who works tirelessly at convincing the mind of a man to "Cease" from labeling THINGS for what they ARE in this world?

Yet here is one of the things mere men forget about the counsel of God? More often contention among believers is Not about is God TRUE or Not, instead it's now about who and what as if the topic has "Morphed"?

 it's being shifted to HOW what a man believes to be TRUE about God also gets "APPLIED" and to what?

To what could either be compared to in THIS world?

And exactly what is it that's at the "Heart" of ANY mans own "Deception" if NOT his personalized version of "Ignorance and Unbelief"?

And if there were ANY type of danger when a man considers himself in ONLY in a "Unique" fashion, what then does such a man also risk having "OVERLOOKED'?

And if such a man overlooks anything how does this same man only later TRUTHFULLY summarize his own DECEPTION?

And if God does NOT live in a temple built by human "Hands", who has failed to consider the likeness of whose mind those same hands that have built are also somehow attached to?

Consider the proverbial Hand of God whose body could NOT be seen by those viewing the mystery of merely a hand doing the writing on the proverbial WALL in the Moment?

Is there a reverse angle perspective between this realm (world) men have failed to Consider or even challenged their minds to delve into in ALL honesty?

In terms of  "Deception, the requirement of the possession of something or someone in order to "DECEIVE, who could then interact with humanity in order to realize the AFFECTS of same? And what would YOU suppose would be the most effective TYPE of approach?

Who TODAY is NOT making the INQUIRY unto GOD where the slaughter of the SHEEP who do belong to God is TRULY taking place? Does the sheep need to be deceived before being "Lead"?

NO, yet only whenever what other consideration has dominated the "Landscape" of reasoning? The sound of GODS voice maybe? The voice that also sounds like what if NOT the proverbial TRUMPET CALL?

And who is that could also somehow SLEEP through the TRUMPET CALL and NOT rise in that DAY?

Please, Please do NOT "Try" to hear what I'm NOT saying or suggesting, because God does HAVE MANY in your city and in MANY others. If there is a troubling consideration though and is does have to DO with the who "factor"!

That factor being what if NOT...WHO is also able to "Discern" the difference between ANY two DIFFERENT types of spiritual activity within any "GOD" Given moment?

Matt 23:1-4
Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: "The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. 

So you must obey them and do everything they tell you.

But do not do what they do , for they do not practice what they preach.

They tie up heavy loads and put them on men's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. NIV

There are MANY today who are suggesting they too sit in that 'PROVERBIAL" seat (Moses) and just as many whose message(s) sound just LIKE the intent of the LAW declared by Moses? The proof of that being the bondage of many.

How many listening to however many different versions of their OWN message(s) also clearly understand what the Gospel of "Repentance" deeply desires to rescues them FROM?

As if "True Repentance" according to CHRIST is only a one time (momentary) "Event"?

The type of event where a KNOWN liar who does have a history repeats a TRUST worthy phrase they're not even sure they totally understand? And how can they understand unless they been TAUGHT?

Let's face it as if we do desire to become mature in the entire consideration of ALL that God says He is and that under the clears terms of ALL that He has ALREADY done.

Under the GODLY terms of a transformation, if a type of person went to bed fat or stupid should that person also expect to wake up as if "Charles Atlas or Einstein?

You do if that's the TYPE of miracle You believe YOUR God PROMISED...YOU!

EXACTLY why do most churches NOT allow a New Convert" to speak to an assembly of God's people as if AUTHORITY?

To then TRUTHFULLY consider some why some New Converts will be allowed to Publicly pray over as for and/or on behalf of Gods people, yet NOT be allowed to TEACH? I'm still NOT sure I see the Godly SANITY in these type of gestures, but I DIGRESS!

And what is TRUE authority without the AUTHOR also being present in what's been presented for CONSIDERATION?

And if the words of ANYONE else were to be considered to be close to zero AFFECT who then does that by DEFAULT also exclude?

Isa 55:10-11

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void , but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
KJV

In terms of evil, is it ONLY recognized at the Height of it's physical presentation OR will it be recognized during the spiritual presentation (door) of its otherwise TRUE intentions?

Was there a TRUE reason as to why STEPHEN during his own STONING could somehow SEE what He did SEE? The type of sight that caused him to utter what TYPE of words?

2 Cor 11:13-15
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ.

And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light . It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousnessTheir end will be what their actions deserve.
NIV


And personal opinion having been based on what YOU and I also suggest we do KNOW BEST?

At what CRITICAL point in ANY mans life could the type of counsel prove itself for ALL that it IS such as, "Let God be True and Every Man a Liar' prove to be a great starin

Alter Ego"?

Have you ever sat and pondered what could "Possibly" be at the Heart of "Poor Reasoning" as to the WHY even many who suggest they're believers seem to have NO IMMEDIATE sense of FEAR in their PRIVATE thought life much less their PUBLIC life that pertains to God?

Could part of any persons "Deception" prove to be that He as GOD has merely been kept in a type of "Isolation"?

Whenever someone suggest the dots have are starting to connect, at what point has this same person "Concluded" those SAME dots are also connected "TO" their point of ORIGIN on ANY type of DIVINE level?

Man being only a part of "All" that he truly is in any given moment, is it possible for him to run out of words that will argue both for and against everything he chooses to "Believe". sw

Is there a difference between preparing a room for a temporary "Guest" and someone who's been reconsidered as a "Permanent" resident in your "Household". sw

Why would it ever be presented (as if a need) there TRULY is a difference when a man tries to consider a part time "Christ In him" as if somehow a different type of inhabitant should he reconsider his person somehow as if a BEING who's ... "In Christ"?

Has man become that "Flirtatious"? To then truthfully reconsider the type of man who truly IS.."Flirting with Disaster'?

And how would either of those considerations find agreement with type of promise from the Lord which MORE than suggest, "I will NEVER leave YOU, NOR forsake YOU"?

Quite possibly (should a person allow it) the lead declaration into an even higher type of THOUGHT that further emphasizes the greater reality in that 'Greater is He that is IN YOU than He that is IN ...."The world'?

Why is it many can WATCH a movie or TV program about BEING possessed by demons and BELIEVE it's POSSIBLE, whereas merely the THOUGHT of somehow being POSSESSED by the spirit of CHRIST then SEEMS to lack "What"?

A type of animated example that can ALSO be SEEN?

Acts 17:28
For in him we live and move and have our being .' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'
NIV


And that within the nutshell in both somehow having "Become" ONE with each other?

Have you ever seriously considered what a "Rich Welcome" as was intended by God COULD be "Likened To"? To what could this type of consideration be "Compared"?

2 Peter 1:10-11
Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these thingsyou will never falland you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
NIV




Have you ever considered how a room full of "Estranged" people could ever reach an agreement as to 'Who" the teacher in the room needs to be? And as such without having to refer to their qualifications. sw

What if the only righteous definition of Agape Love were understood by way of knowing "The Lamb of God was slain before the foundations of the earth were formed. sw

What happens to the alter ego when a person has truly "Adopted" the thought they are best judged whenever assumed they're alone within the "Safety net' of their own thoughts? And who has truly become the fisher of men. sw

What if all men were willing to accept that "No Soul" is going to escape "Facing" the truth at some point of the souls existence? Could that be a contributing factor as to why some only see the permanent death of "Awareness" as the only viable alternative. sw

What if fleeting strength and beauty were seen as a gift from God? How many will also learn to value the beauty of real 'Strength" when it does come. sw

How many opportunities in life are missed for all they could have "Otherwise" proven to be?

In your life will it prove to be because of the "Fashion" of the presentation? Because the messenger in "Your" opinion came to You for all the wrong reasons?

How confused has any man since become in terms of NOT only what Love is, but WHO Love is?

As if an extension of that same Love of God how does that type of Love also present itself in this world?

I can almost hear it whispered now, It depends on "Who" you ask?

In terms of Origin, who's also attempting to redefine the type of Love God has prepared in "Advance"?

Why is it such a hard "Open Faced" question to answer whenever ANY "Type of Person" is asked what the original definition of Love is? Exactly where has Love been TAKEN in this world?

Why isn't THE only acceptable answer of ALL people, "God Is Love'?

Why is it so easily understood whenever someone has supposedly "Dated" themselves when questioned, yet the same ones will fail to recognize whenever the spirit of "Ignorance and Unbelief" tries to defend itself?

If there were ANYTHING that could somehow complicate the words of the spirit of God how would you FIND same as if the heart of the matter?

What type of harm does a man TRULY understand who invites harm upon himself should such a man continue to view Christ from a worldly point of View?

Surely He was once considered to be the Son of Man yet what type of man did those type of thoughts produce? At what point does He as Christ become the Son of God who's also in His RIGHT state of Mind?

The type of outlook that has failed to acknowledge who by way of a promise is said to also be on the Inside of those who HAVE BELIEVED the words of God as their CREATOR?

And if walking by faith is NOT seen as though walking by way of HIS eyes what has any man also truly REALIZED?

If ONLY what WILL last is ONLY what is REAL, what has anyone truly REALIZED having "Believed"?

How long is a person WILLING to remain thought of as though a FOOL for CHRIST? And as such without finding they've had to FIRST consider what LOST looks like?

What if the best and worst Sermons ever preached could ONLY be measured when compared to the Heart of God?

2 Cor 5:16-21
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view . Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.

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

What has any man become if NOT for the MERCY of God He has shown in our failed attempt(s) at being "Righteous"? And as such if Christ does NOT prove be the ONE who was able to HUMBLE you before The Lord?


1 John 4:8-12
8 Whoever does not love does not know Godbecause God is love .

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

This is lovenot that we loved Godbut that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
NIV


If it is known in advance the truth hurts, who then would find it a need to demonize the messenger only after the message was given?

In this blog I wanted to delve into an area that's historically proven to cause discomfort. There's a reason why these type of messages have and will continue to prove not to be for those who "See" themselves outside the "Purview" of the Godly persuasion.

I'm of the opinion every man has his own vision, whereas not everyone will see the same things based on what they've refused to 'Believe" to be "True".

Is there a true reason why those who do claim to be "Believers" In Christ do seem to get not only uncomfortable but quite animated when someone other than 'Self" camps out on one particular God oriented topic?

What is it about a "Crowd" that could somehow make any type of person feel safe? Especially if also trying to define the essence of "There's strength in Numbers"?

Just to be clear what I'm not talking about is the type of "Crowd" a pursued criminal tries to blend into while being chased!

What is the true reason why the origins of an "Ugly" rumor proves more difficult to find the 'Source'? Especially when a "False Witness" gets mentioned. sw

Have you ever heard someone trying to defend the otherwise "Alter Ego" of another person? The type of "Choice words" carefully sought out as if saying, "I was just trying to soften the Blow"?

And how many today can honestly deny that "self" was NOT an active participant within any type of Judgement passed?

When does the question, "What would You have done in their situation" prove to have nothing to do with what ANYONE does Wrong?

What is false humility if God is NOT the one who has humbled a man? And as such as if beyond ALL doubt?

Deut 8:3-4
He humbled youcausing you to hunger and then feeding you with mannawhich neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. 
NIV

What has a man concluded should he convince himself God has nothing MORE to say other than what is Written? What has this type of man also concluded as he ponders within his soul, "I wonder what type of Judge will preside over MY Trial?

What has been said when a man "Throws himself on the Mercy of the court room" only to then find himself faced with the harshest of Judgement passed?

Have you ever given much serious thought to what a persons "Alter Ego" could prove if BOTH 'Ego's KNEW beyond doubt what a TRUE friend DID look like on the OTHER side of ANY scenario?


al·ter e·go
noun
  1. a person's secondary or alternative personality.
    • an intimate and trusted friend.

And what do harsh words spoken in love also Hope to prevent if NOT "Immaturity"?

Truly what would qualify as the GREAT escape if a person that does see themselves in the sight of A GOD that doesn't also insist "Maturity" is the overall "Objective"?

Who better to choose if NOT 'Self" or those who think like self in order to justify ANY mans "personal opinion of 'Self'? To then think to what a self defense network or "Assembled Team" that's easily mobilized truly looks like within the life of a "Manipulator"?

And what might a mans justification sound like today? 

"I might have beaten the servants, BUT at least I wasn't drunk when I did'!

Luke 12:45-48
But suppose the servant says to himself, 'My master is taking a long time in coming,' and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk.

The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

"That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows .

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows .NIV

And why does a someone who looks to justify their own actions always need to compare themselves to those they've considered to be the LEAST in the Kingdom of God?

And how does One minor detail also decide the outcome of any type of recorded LAW if even as few as ONE small consideration can be 'Excluded"?

Why does the Christianity sort of today nearly insist upon the prerequisite in order to talk openly "About" Life and Godliness also requires a "Crowd"?

Years ago my wife and I were no less than seven years members of a relatively small church. We chose to sign up for a small group meeting where only the supposed adults in the congregation had been invited to attend.

I vividly remember the moment when we were handed and asked to 'Endorse" a "Nondisclosure" agreement in order to be able to sit in on these meetings.

I simply say it this way, later that evening in private my "Wife" reminded me of a sermon preached in that same church about what a 'Prenuptial Agreement" must look like when presented to the spouse who's also "In Love'!

And what does two men fighting look in the middle of no where look like verses the image of two that are fighting in crowd? To then task those observing "Who started the fight" as if they're all nothing more or less than "Innocent Bystanders"?

Does God only talk about "My MAN" Or does God primarily speak in terms of His People even when only mentioning "Adam'? Meaning More than ONE?

When He as God does speak to humanity in "Plural" terms who does that leave to speak and or relate to God on personal TERMS? To suggest in HIS (Gods) physical (tangible) "Absence"?

And how can a man whose been dead for hundreds if not thousands of years speak the langauge being spoken today?

Is there a difference between a Monologue and Dialogue within in a relationship with God? Wouldn't it depend upon the individual type of environment? Maybe, as to whether or NOT God does find it a need to TEACH the specific's on a particular topic more clearly?

As if HE is the "Private Tutor" who also specializes in REMEDIAL courses?

It' easily accepted what "Cheating Self" ultimately looks like within the established ranks of "Academia', but what about within the ranks of "Life and Godliness", who's to say Right?

Exactly how many VOTING children within a household does it require to OUT VOTE Mom or DAD within the scope of 'Parental Topic's?

To then truthfully consider which God appointed model's in the earth were also intended to shadow the likeness of ALL that TRUE... In heaven?

Have you ever sat and truthfully considered how a room full of people could ever discover on their Own WHO the teachers in the ROOM....Need to Be?

Does God as a GOOD Father somehow KEEP FAMILY secrets? The type of God that tells one child this yet keeps those same things close chested when discussing life with His other children?

Even if maturity were somehow factored in to the question being asked, how does whomever also find their person in relation to GOD when being compared to whomever else?

What would that type of relationship LOOK like in the natural if it were somehow compared? Who's to say, Right? And as such with ANY real degree of 'Authority"?

And what do the "Power" brokers of this world say whatever it is they have need of saying?

Those who want to seem as if they are in sole possession of better understanding of a type of power OVER wherever it is THEY also SEE themselves?

Do they only see themselves in this world whenever they do speak in their "Native Language"?

Those who've been recorded as having a personal relationship with God? Personal relationship with god that also looks like 'Who"?

with God as onlytheir Life and sense of Godliness is a topic that's 'Strictly" between "Me and God"?

What is it about humanity and discomfort that seems to rise up whenever someone talks about God and Godliness?

More often than not "What takes place" whenever others seems to "Make the Choice" in terms of "What they think they're hearing said"?

As if whenever someone else chooses to talk about life and Godliness their method of speech somehow gets translated into to what they "Personally" may or may NOT be doing, "Right"?

Why is it so easily obvious whenever someone (unaware) seems to have hit the proverbial Nerve or sore subject, the conversational topic can Usually easily be redirected without missing a beat?

Not only about what God says Godliness looks like, but just as important what any "God Given Day" in the life of a "Believer" should look like.

As such that also seems to revolve around what many also hope points directly "At" in terms of all they've somehow "Done" for God one on their own and those same things being done within a seemingly 'Shrinking" small world!

Have you ever tried to challenge YOUR godly type of reasoning with the "Why" it often seems so difficult to separate The One True God within a conversation? The type of conversation that bnegan with a trype of Godliness yet since seem to require being "Redirected" or in some cases totally "Abandoned"?

All for the sake of what, "Keeping the Peace"?

The same type of Peace that also began with a conversation about the type of peace that YOU believe only "Godliness" in your life has also promotes?

Having departed from these supposedly Godly type of conversations (for whatever reasons) where you've since found your person under the impression you have "Less" in common than you DO have inn common with these people? Not only less in common with them, yet now a seemingly greater internal struggle having listened to their "Reasoning" as to why you MIGHT have a difference of "Opinion"?

Is there a true reason why "Yesterday and Tomorrow" seems to be the type of guiding light against which 'Today" somehow gets measured?

To suggest that as long as today somehow interprets differently everything is "Alright"? And often times that same measurement then being weighed against 'What"?

What those around us within the supposed body of Christ are also supposedly 'Doing" or NOT within that same consideration in the sight of God?

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

(And if God Is, Does, Has and Continues to make anything 'Plain" to anyone whether those on earth or in heavenly places, how does He continue to make it plain and THROUGH whom if NOT the said sufferings of the corporate "Church"?

This same type of teaching (school master) that also suggest BY NOW ....Many by NOW ought already be TEACHERS?)


Was the Apostle Paul ONLY trying to SOUND gracious in his presentation of the administration of God? Or was Paul being SINCERE in His offering of himself in that He truly is and was LEAST of ALL God's people as compared the 'Sum total" in the sight of God?

Is there a true reason NOTHING more is rarely seen or heard once a person perceives they HEARD of SEEN ...ALL they personally Need to KNOW? Is this type of discussion ONLY talking about everything that needs to be KNOWN about mankind OR "The LORD?

And who today is it that's also SOMEHOW providing this type of "Measurement" that's also found to be within the type of world God is always talking about?

Eph 3:8-13
Although I am less than the least of all God's people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.

His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.

In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. 13 I ask you, therefore, not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory.

NIV


(As if somehow Justified' because someone claims to either know or NOT know something "Specific" about the "Will of God" does their assertive claim somehow allow their "Individual" assessment that's been MADE to circumvent what ALL men have been subjected to?

And because many have gravitated "Together" for a specific CAUSE does their "Enjoined" agreement also somehow circumvent what ALL men have been subjected to?

 What if the seemingly simplest consideration could prove to have had EVERYTHING to do WITH what what ANY person could have somehow MISSED, what would "You" assume that One consideration is? 

Many would suggest that One consideration to be "Christ", and they would be Right, yet does that also somehow MYSTERIOUSLY and immediately make them ONE with Christ? The same type of "Oneness" he put on display in His Obedience unto what many are claiming to be OUR Father whom also presently only APPEARS to be (reside) in Heaven?

If "Yes" what more could be said to such a mindset?)

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seenbeing understood from what has been madeso that men are without excuse.
NIV

And if 'There" were a real place, how would today then 'Appear" to those who are somehow being considered as though "Blind" with respect to what is OTHERWISE......Real?

Is it One thing to always be seen as if GOING to the Show, as opposed to never being PART of the SHOWING?

I hope to be able to continue this at a later time. sw

The very "TYPE" of confession where a historically "Known" LIAR is now standing at the cross roads that lead to a RIGHTEOUS reconciliation (recovery)?

Yet who not only put them there at the 'pinnacle" of that seat, but also who is capable of proving they were Given the RIGHT to BE there if NOT the Lord? And what does it LOOK LIKE whenever the people CHOOSE who they want as their KING?

Is it the man that drives out a demon or the finger of God? That finger also being the 'Undeniable" representative of who?


Luke 11:20
But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you
NIV

And if it is ONLY by the FINGER of God by which demons are driven OUT of a man, is it TRULY any wonder WHY is MUST Be beaten as if a DRUM as to WHY God no longer has need of expressing His person in this world in that same FASHION.....Today?

And if there are NO demons today, nor DEMONS capable of possessing a said SAINT, is it truly any wonder whey the demographics on the outside look very similar to those MASSED as though in the HOUSE OF GOD that's NOT been built by HUMAN HANDS?

Jer 7:16-17

16 "So do not pray for this people nor offer any plea or petition for them; do not plead with me, for I will not listen to you

Do you not see what they are doing in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem
NIV

Many are getting FAT in the House of God, yet there are MANY more who are less than LEAN and for ONLY ONE reason.

Fat people fall as do ALL people yet when FAT people fall the tendency is Fat people fall MUCH harder!

For those who insist upon remaining "Politically Correct", you can substitute the word FAT with the softer word, "Heavy"!

1 Sam 4:18
When he mentioned the ark of God, Eli fell backward off his chair by the side of the gate. His neck was broken and he died, for he was an old man and heavy. He had led Israel forty years. 
NIV

Prov 19:11
A man's wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense. 
NIV

Acts 7:57-60
At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, 58 dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul. 

While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." Then he fell on his knees and cried out, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." 

When he had said this, he fell asleep. 
NIV

Yes there's always HOPE! Consider the the 'Entirety" of the making of the MAN Saul whenever you doubt!

Even if from Womb to Tomb who gets to decide the truthful meaning of either?

There's ALWAYS...the REST of the Story to Consider before a STUDIOUS (prudent) decision can be MADE!
