Written to remind myself.
Through the night…
Jesus Christ is leading me to… a beautiful city…
why pursue anything less… like the darkness… the world (Deuteronomy 18:9-11)—aka… humanism… contemplative prayer (emptying the mind to hear voices… repeating mantras)… false prophets… grave soaking… ecumenism… false signs and wonders for their own sake?
Gifts not from the Holy Spirit, as He directs, will be false copycats that destroy lives. They’re found in the pursuit of idolatry (Exodus 7:10-11, 20-22; Matthew 24:23-24; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-11).
If we believe the God of Israel is the one and only true God… why seek the false gods (Acts 4:11-12; 1 John 4:1; Jeremiah 14:14-16; Judges 2:12)?
I get this [in brackets] from the chorus hook in… All That You Need (heads up… there’s some cursing in the song).
Sow the seed [the word of God] in the ground [your heart] below
Fall to your knees and pray real slow
That rain [the Holy Spirit of God] will come and kiss the seed
And bless you with all that you need [The Father God… Jesus Christ… the Holy Spirit—the Kingdom of God].
Do farmers and ranchers pray more honestly and earnestly when their lives are on the line than those in pursuit of the world and dead gods (idols) for their security and comfort?
If we don’t cry out only to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—the God of Israel in Jesus Christ’s name… we’ll eventually lose the… farm—our faith and the joy of the Lord… for eternity.
It’s not an option… You’ve got to serve somebody…
Is He real… genuine… priceless… or… is he fake… a “knock-off”… worthless junk?
Do we hunger… thirst… for the… True?
We’ve got to serve somebody.
4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. 5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: 6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: 7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. 8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them. Psalm 115
