How Blind are You?

“Faith in the biblical sense is substantive, based on the knowledge that the One in whom that faith is placed has proven that He is worthy of that trust. In its essence, faith is a confidence in the person of Jesus Christ and in His power, so that even when His power does not serve my end, my confidence in Him remains because of who He is.” - Ravi Zacharias

This we know, but I am mildly held from this comment. If its “substantive” you want (and we do), then take away all props to build upon, so that faith won’t be confused. Reduce the subject to the Master’s identifying: “Oh you of little faith”, to bring forth His jewel for use, to bless and to grow. Indeed, some things are for our edification, exhortation, keeping, but faith must be consecrated. I’m not saying to isolate it from the exuberant expression of all the proclamations of the Almighty. But somewhere in the fray in some corner of the world is a building of the “faith” He said He would find upon His returning. It may not have the advantages of the above, but the below. What kind of “faith” would it take to wield the Lord Christ’s praise of honor? The kind coming from your brother or sister whom acts upon it as if it were his/her own table to eat at, though it is God’s, his own tool to work with, but that too has been supplied, upon which God gives the increase from the very smallest steps of faith.

Best of blessings to all the Church!

American Silence, !!Enough!!

In concern of the highest need of this nation to not recapture her former glory of Godly governance by sheer determination, but to reaffirm unashamedly the core foundations already set from her birth, is a statement in itself, if mishandled, could hold wide open to both be attacked from without, and rest in pride from within. It is up to us individually to make sure that promotion is in the framework of humility before God, and promoted by prayer, thereby be protected by Him. It is my understanding that we have not yet begun to take the first step of insuring such protection by an all-powerful God.

You undoubtedly are aware of the good deeds wrought by the folks at the Heritage Foundation who now have the succeeding new president ret. Senator Jim DeMint.

In a letter to the esteemed Senator, I thought to bring the following to his attention:

Sen. Jim DeMint,

Greetings. Based upon your acknowledgment of the gospel principle of an individual’s particular economic status of giving to your well-equipped fact finding that leads to disbursements to the hands of lawmakers, I am not so hesitant to agree to your request for support.

But something remains here a little more than troubling. Regardless of the amount of sensitive handling so many feel is a better road traveled, over and over again conveys a stout resistance. A resistance that is exemplified in such recollections as your citing the courageous young 19-yr old Mr. Bufford’s:

“strong conservative values that will lead our country”

In this, the only mention of hope to alter our course, I ask, how many more years do you think we have? Another year of appealing to the well intentioned? Another year to note comparable policy deficiencies? Another year to cite ten thousand more dubious acknowledgements of what really turns over and exposes the cancerous root that causes these deficiencies in the first place?

Retrospectively, this does not heed to well at all the founder’s many signals of alarm to be guided by. An alarm to correct without policy - cause, rather than with policy - outcome. The current open initiative of resisting even to the smallest degree any mention of providence is to perpetually resist ourselves right into shall we say, public pride. I’m afraid that may be combined in error with patriotism. What is the first step to alleviate such misguidedness?

“If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

As I pointed out to your predecessor, Ed Fuelner, the recorded instance to maintain secrecy by the Apostle for those who were of “reputation” (Galatians 2:2), in this case, (I did not tell Mr. Fuelner) is not “in vain”. For unlike ours, they did not have any gospel underpinnings to affirm at all. Only now we have a constant battering to slow water-down of that foundation.

So just what is it we are calling on the mass conscience to deliver us from such deficiencies by? Is the smallest mention going to lead us into the abyss? You Senator, among so many have already reminded us of that state for some years now. It’s time to turn from public pride of self-determination only, and turn up the heat to promote the One who has been shelved from our campaigns with the seal of universal “Godspeed” well-wishing.

Fields of Love (pages of favorites)

Yes, I have my favorites, may they not be hid nor fail in glorifying God in cold preference.

In short, the word of God and the entirety of all that came by His inspiration, remains beyond anything man may succeed to aspire to, attain or come to be. And since it is within man to not stay in a condition to suffer need, there remains the ready potential for him to act under a nature that is inherently set ablaze from the very start by an insurmountable friendly cloud needing Truth bearer’s lives to overrule it. For the “days are evil” and looks to its own. It does not seek life and truth, but to substitute God’s truth, question the bible, discredit, criticize and the ever popular replacement of it.

These all pose a most dangerous prospect to the regenerated mind of the Christian for them, both small and great, rich or poor. Perceiving such an attempt by those who are without the body, nor have His Spirit reminds us just how plentiful the “harvest” truly is. But this is true even while we in the U.S. are so well served with the Gospel week after week. In that case, the more fertile fields will simply relate to much less planting, but increase the ministry of damage control, broadening the field “into all the world”.

Is it possible, in the many methods and offices of His enabling gifts of both planting and watering, this presentation of the risen Lord, the fundamental truths (one would think) shouldn’t deviate at all on stray points to recover the lost from Satan’s homeland security? May faith surely have its good way in securing all of our co-faith of the Son whichever task He enables us for.

If planting, possibly your field approach already deviates, but I hope not:


  • Consonance over man
  • Condition recognized
  • Confirmation of surrender
  • Conciliatory message or prayer
  • Stock announcement of rejoicing angels
  • Brief overview
  • Particular directives


If this resembles what you might confirm as holding merit, then the last one holds as much potential for benefit as it does a back door to particulars. What particullars? That is between you and He all too often but has the same open traditions.

If watering, a concern for this goes all the way back to particulars in the word. While it is so that we are to be “fully persuaded” in our own minds yet “without preferring” said principles (I Tim 5:21). For we ourselves ought to be familiar in cultivating that check to resist all popular clamor of pro/campaigning, con/rejecting and act as though we had a handle on the far reach of His mercy for those unskilled in the word.

Oh yes, what are my favorites? Why my favorites are those the Spirit gives light to which may even be a little unconventional, not taught by man though I too recieve, but look to the Spirit of God, my strength and yours, which is far below his weakness. But if God allowed us to inspect that weakness by itself, would bring us to know His absolute fathomless glory.


Never blind by ever learning

Never hear from short burning

Never sit straight wrest reading

Never let Love fall from seeing

God bless!
