Why not just go? Why therefore?

Why did Jesus not say "go"?

Why did He say "... therefore go"?

I bet you there is a reason!

And it's a GOOD one too!

Beware of enticing philosophy

Man made ordinances and traditions can strip us of our identity in Christ.

I essence we could allow ourselves to be stripped of our identity in Christ by the very choices we make.

How?

By persuasion of deceit for the love of wisdom ...

What?

Build the house - oikodomē

How do we proceed with the Gospel?

Amid all the ungodliness and strive and and deception and lies and idol worship that is going on in the world ... today ...

How do we proceed with our calling?

How do we act and react and move and find our being?

Death is abolished - katargeō

Jesus abolished death.

What? People are still dying, Daniel. Have you noticed?

Yes, but are they?

Paul writing to his spiritual son, Timothy who was sent on an apostolic mission to one of the greatest idol worshiping cities of all times

Lambanō and dechomai - personal and objective


What does it mean to receive?

And what stands between us and receiving?

The problem has always been to encourage the bride of Christ in the face of obnoxious hostility rebelling against the Gospel.

GIGO - we are what we eat

We are all familiar with the saying garbage-in-garbage-out. 

It is used a lot in the world of computer programming and data analysis. But it holds true for most of life ...

We are what we eat ... so the nutritionists say.

Are we?

Justification and Righteousness

If you look at yourself ... just how acceptable are you?

Is there room for improvement?

Somewhat ...?

Slightly ...?

What exactly is the picture you see looking in the mirror?

Amazing what the brain-washed mind can see!

What is this all about?

hopoios - what quality of person are you?

ὁποῖος Hopoios - What manner of person are you?

What kind of Greek question is this?

This is really the question ...

To be or not to be ...

Being a human-being or being a human-doing

Built to specifications!

My dear friend, church, house, holy one ...

Can I call you that?

Do you feel comfortable responding to that?

Do you consider yourself that?

Holy? House? Church? Friend of God?

Ultimate Grace to those in bondage!

I am sometimes astonished that even today people get confused over who exactly God is.

They mix good and evil and call that God. 

They mix distance and delay with living within and now, and call that God.

They mix law and Grace and call that God.

... very much the same as in the time of Moses.

Continually consume my mind - kisses!

Don't you just love the Message translation when it comes to conveying feelings and emotions and the heart of Jesus?

There is something about love-language that instantly focuses your attention.

Hear Jesus' voice when it comes to His lover in Songs of Solomon 1:1-4:

The accomplished Word and Perfect Liberty

I am sure that you have heard many sermons on the last words of Jesus before He gave up his life.

"(It is) FINISHED"

This word had been greatly dissected and explained and interpreted and reinterpreted over and over again.

Why is it so important?

What did Jesus say?

Nevertheless - being inside of us!

Whenever Jesus says "nevertheless", He has my full attention. 

When He says "nevertheless" He actually says: "contrary to what you are thinking ..."

"In contrast to your line of thought and your feelings ..."

"Instead of your convictions ..."

Left or right?

I recently said during a fellowship that when we read the Word of God, we should do so with our brains in tact.

Be present ...

... apply your mind, man!

So, the other day I read the book of an old covenant prophet with my mind in tact ... and was blown away!

Look at this quote:

I soooo like the word dioti!!

Dioti is used in the Word of God 22 times (New Testament).

Every time it is in exactly the right place and for the right purpose.

Dioti is a word.

It is a conjunction.

What?

I guess we all need a revelation of dioti(c) proportions!

It's simple ...
