LIBERTY:, LIFE:

…Of SONS and Sunstoppers,

“…HIS Son, whom he hath appointed HEIR of all things,

1:4… he hath by INHERITANCE obtained a more excellent name than the Angels…” –Hebrews 1:2

SITUATION, SICKNESS, DEATH, DEMONS  and HELL don’t respond when PEOPLE call the name of Jesus.

They RESPOND when SONS and DAUGHTERS namedrop!

I can go to England and SCREAM the Queen‘s name at their Army/Police/Navy ALL day and nothing will ever happen…

But the moment I get ADOPTED by PRINCE CHARLES, who INHERITED the name…

I merely whisper my heritage, and things start movin‘ and shakin‘.

See what JESUS got by INHERITANCE, We PARTAKE of through ADOPTION,

And the confident EXPRESSION of THAT realization lived out in PRACTICAL ways , in our EVERYDAY CONTEXTS is the ESSENCE of true SONSHIP!

PURSUIT:

…of Fire and Fervency,

      “…who makes his angels winds, and his Ministers FLAMES OF FIRE,” – PSALM 104:4

Tomorrow we may be tired,

Tomorrow we may be discouraged,

Tomorrow we may have families and other commitments that cut into Kingdom time and effectiveness.

We may have too much to lose tomorrow to fight desperate yet DECISIVE battles for the King.

Tomorrow we may have too much invested in OURSELVES to be EXPENDABLE in and for HIS kingdom.

Tomorrow we might not have the strength to build with our left hands, nor the ambidexterity nor skill to simultaneously fight with the right.

Tomorrow we might have NEITHER the GUTS,

the GRIT,

the GUMPTION,

the ZEAL,

the MENTAL FORTITUDE

NOR the SPIRITUAL WHEREWITHAL to tarry all night and by perseverance and VIOLENCE obtain the promises..,

but TONIGHT….

…Of Women and Waiting,

I don’t think the Triune counsel of the GODHEAD was talking about the recreational challenges of Adam in the garden when it stated

“It is NOT good for Man to be alone” -T.C.G

I BELIEVE as long as the unfiltered presence of God Almighty was in that garden, Adam was literally INCAPABLE of ‘feeling‘ loneliness!

Yet I feel like we as the “well wishing church” have warped that initial statement to mean

“It is NOT good for MAN to be LONELY”

…and used it to BASH all ‘overage‘ singles!

NOT COOL Y’ALL!  😦

If you are going to MISUSE scripture,
to ABUSE me, then the LEAST you can do is use the RIGHT club!

Give me a ‘noble’ death!

SEE, I believe in that single statement in Genesis 2:18, God wasn’t just musing aloud, but LITERALLY giving a ‘DIAGNOSTIC SUMMARY’ of the fate of the ENTIRE species, by saying

“it is NOT good for Man to lack the CAPACITY to REPRODUCE/RECREATE and fulfill my original and ULTIMATE purpose for his initial creation by BEING alone, “-T.C.G

so to remedy this handicap, The divine HE took the ‘RIB’ out of Adam to create the SOLUTION to the apparent SOLITUDE, NOT of the MAN, but of the potential MANY.

I believe the ‘RIB’ wasn’t the biological component of Man’s skeletal system as we scientifically interpret it today, but rather it was an intimate part of man, symbolic of Man’s most crippling inadequacy.

The inability to RECREATE.

The incapacity to literally spawn a species.

So he put him to sleep, took everything the MAN lacked OUT of the MAN, and used it as a MOLD to ‘fashion‘ for him an ‘animate component’ to make HIM fully complete through HER,

So that as the ‘UNITED FRONT’ called THEM, THEY (as a WHOLE) could MEET the requirements of Gods ultimate mandate of FRUITFULNESS,

MULTIPLICATION,

ABUNDANCE

and SUBJUGATION outlined in Genesis 1:28.

…God said unto them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it!”

He LITERALLY made him a ‘help‘, MEET ( perfectly fitted) for the propagation and fulfillment of HIS (GOD’S) divine mandate.

The woman was created OUT of need, to FILL a need ( that’s why women are such fixers methinks).

The woman was created OUT of solitude, to REMEDY solitude.

The woman was created OUT of potential, to FULFILL potential.

With that said, if a woman is SUCH a strategic creation,

created to fulfill  such a STRATEGIC and SPECIFIC purpose. I PERSONALLY believe I can afford to take a decade, or 3 to ‘watch‘ and pray to make sure God brings me the RIGHT one!

Now, If the woman was MINE on the other hand,

MINE in every sense of the word.

MINE NOT as an entrustment,

but MINE as a ‘disposablemeans and mere accessory to the selfish end of fulfilling MY pleasure and for the execution of and realization of MY personal ambitions and plans then hey, I could rely on my wisdom and my volition and criterion to pick one,

ANY one, the closest one.

The prettier the better! and quite literally, LIVE IT UP!

But if she was DIVINELY ENGINEERED with GREAT INTENTIONALITY,

to PARTNER with me to strategically fulfill a concise purpose,

DIVINELY authored and authorized before the foundation of the world by God ALMIGHTY, then hey,

YOU drew the blueprints God,

YOU know which woman I need to partner with to fulfill them,

so YOU choose.

And like you did with my prototypical ancestor, Adam

YOU bring her to me!

Thank you, and Amen!

…Of Revelation and Revenue,

PSALM 145:16 You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing

GOD is the ULTIMATE source! That means if he has NOT in his sovereignty chosen to OPEN his hand, and SATISFY our desires as living things then no amount of ‘manipulative’ praying will pry those hands open methinks.
I believe true REST comes when we begin to recalibrate our mindsets through HIS word to the default of trusting that his PRUDENCE and his PROVISION will intersect at the point of our deepest need and our desires will be SATISFIED.

On HIS terms,
On HIS timing.

So many times we try to MANIPULATE God through prayers and scripture quoting into initiating HIS divine plan for our lives on OUR timing, which undermines the very essence of the concept of TRUST.

LIFE:

…of Lives and Legacies,

PROVERBS 14:2

He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but he that is perverse in his ways DESPISETH him.”

There is GRACE when we SIN, but ‘grace‘ used in this context is purely REMEDIAL.

Now HOLINESS on the other hand, with the FEAR of the LORD as its natural expression is ENTIRELY preemptive.

EVEN though there is grace and forgiveness for my ‘morally questionable’ or outright BAD choices,
That forgiveness STILL doesn’t ALTER THE FACT that my definitive behavioral patterns DESPISE the LORD, and that my track record, and underlying LEGACY neither pleases nor is an accurate representation of (Elo)HIM.

That’s not a LEGACY I want to leave on the Earth, or the kind of SHOW I want to put up for the cloud of witnesses. Continue reading

…Of Dungeons and Dignity,

“Therefore I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven; that’s why she loved much,” –Jesus

( Luke 7:47)

 

“….When my HEART becomes FREE,

…and my shame is UNDONE!”.

Those are just mere words sprinkled with sentiment yet devoid of force and sang without conviction IF you’ve NEVER been bound by addiction or shackled by shame.

…but for the REST of us, who have been forgiven MUCH,

To us,

that SONG is an EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION and that simple  STATEMENT our DECLARATION of INDEPENDENCE!
