First the wrestle...then the message!!!

 

First the wrestle...then the message!!!

It occurs to me that when I want to write a blog, it takes hours to deliverate, then 15 minutes to execute!!! It seem there a big discussion in my head wheter the time is right and whether the spirit is with me with a message!!! And I wonder if the 3% will care for my message!!! I was sitting comfortably in the sofa and I said to God, "I want to preach your message, but it seem to be going nowhere and we are just repeating myself over and over!!!..."

And then I turn on the TV and there an urgent report that there now has been 6.9 Rippler Scale earth quake in China!!! And I appologize to God for calling his message boring and run in the mill and I know it is run of the mill!!! But I fear the apathy God will not tolerate and he will continue to bring the flood, hail, earthquakes, famines, pandemic and rampant violence in some places to help us find meaning in his message!!!...

Now prevaling syndrome now is this rampant Narcissistism that has the world focuse on the self!!! And this attitude of the Devil is very effective in making the gospel message uninteresting, and we pant to be entertained!!! Our spiritual poverty is so great that we want to be filled with something, food, alchohol, drugs for this and that, premoscutity to satisfy the hungering flesh that has no rest and wants relief Now!!!...

And the sorry message is that the satifaction of sin comes for a season and then we have to pay the piper with the consequences of depravity, violence, contention, poverty of the spirit and mind, and just pant to be satified with something, and the situation get deperate!!! We can't sleep to well and we are on edge at home and at work. Our children are autistic and we don't matter to them for anything but to eat, then they fall away into this private world of theirs into the empty void of I don't no what, the Abyss!!!...

And we are that way too!!! What about my life??? And myself??? And my feelings??? And my self esteem??? And my part of the bargain??? And my disaster??? And it should be Oh! My... what is happening to us???!!! And we get offended easily and we just don't want to participate in the harmony with others process!!! And we just want to crawl under a rock and rest there and...rest from all the havoc going outside and in our minds!!!...

Job 5:1-13,

["... 1Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?

2For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one.

3I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.

4His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them.

5Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.

6Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;

7Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

8I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:

9Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:

10Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:

11To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.

12He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.

13He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.

14They meet with darkness in the day time, and grope in the noonday as in the night..."]

And listen to what Job says, "They meet with darkness in the day time, and grope in the noonday as in the night..." We have perpertual gloom of the spirit 24 hours a day and the serious situation is that it has been a while since we had a peaceful moment!!! And we need to stop the bus of the world and get off in the nearest stop!!! We need to get back to

God and get back to give and hope!!! And for this we need that moment with God in the morning and before we retire for the night and earnesly forgive those who have offended us!!!...

May you be blessed. Amen.
