FORTY YEARS!

Posted by on Jan 14, 2020 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

As Pam and I looked at the picture of those kids we both said we would like to sit them down and give them a good talking to! O, the counsel we would furnish, and the exhortations we would level!

What an education we have received. Wouldn’t it be nice to start all over with the accumulated experience and wisdom of four decades? Still, we capitalize on what we have, and we believe it is more than a fluffy word of inspiration, but sober and wonderful truth – “The Best is Yet to Come!”

We are determined to press on, and cross over, into promised lands –  rejoicing in our battles, our plantings and buildings, as we capitalize on every past good and hard experience, and upon the present grace and favor of our Lord Jesus Christ today!

I don’t have the words to express the deep appreciation, love and respect I feel for my lover, counselor and precious friend. So many travels, travails and delights are compressed into forty anniversaries!

Thanks to so many who have intersected with our lives and made our lives richer along the way! Bless each one as you press on for the high Goal!

But wait; there’s more!

KINGDOM PREPOSTEROUSNESS, WITH APOLOGIES

Posted by on Jan 4, 2020 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Imagine this preposterous dialogue with Jesus.

Jesus: There has been a change of plans. We are not bringing heaven to earth.

Saints: But Lord, we have prayed 2000 years for heaven to prevail upon the earth!

Jesus: It was too big a project to tackle. The sinfulness of men and demons is too great.

Saints: What are we going to do?

Jesus: We had planned for the whole earth to be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God and that all the nations would become my disciples. But it just seems too difficult.

Saints: But Lord, what now?

Jesus: We are moving to plan B.

Saints: Plan B?

Jesus: Heaven on earth is too much for us to pull off. We are going to evacuate the earth and all of us will go to live in heaven.

Saints: Lord, but what about the earth? What will become of it?

Jesus:  We are aborting our plans to redeem the earth. We will let the earth rot and rust.

Please excuse me for presenting such an imbecilic and inane dialogue! Nothing could be farther from the truth! What our Lord begins, He finishes! What our Lord promises, He fulfills and brings to completion! 

 God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?   Numbers 23:19

We will get the answer to our persistent 2000-year-old prayer, “Your Kingdom come on our planet, just as it prevails in the highest heaven!” Jesus did not ask us to pray for his Kingdom on earth in vain. He did not ask us to be ambassadors, emissaries, and conduits of Heaven to terminate in frustration. The purposes and delights of the Mighty One, the Creator of heaven and earth will be thoroughly realized. He is the Beginning and He is the End! What our Lord begins, He completes!

Our God, who conceived the earth, its plants and creatures, knows how to bring the seed to maturity and fruit! Even with the stumbles and corruptions of we children of Adam, His pleasures will be realized. The squeaking of men and demons will not inhibit fulfillment, but will be found lending themselves to the glory of God. Pharaoh’s resistance only made God’s power more evident!

Is the Kingdom on earth an impossible dream? Why is it that within our hearts there is such a yearning for some kind of brave new world, a new world order, Shangri-La, paradise, Utopia –  garden of Eden? What did Solomon mean when he said, “He has put eternity in their hearts”? There is a longing for something enduring and perfect in every human heart; a higher, refined, transcendent place of existence.

Jesus coached us to Pray, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done one earth.”

It means the first commission given mankind is not scrapped, tabled, or aborted.

Our super-progenitors, Adam and Eve, were not just simply given a garden to enjoy, and vegetation to savor. They were given a mission, a task, a grand project! “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number: fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’”   Gen 1:28

The plan was to expand the garden! As Adam and Eve’s generations multiplied the garden was to be expanded until their progressive generations cultivated the whole planet into a garden paradise.  The desire of God was to see the entire earth, every square inch saturated in abundance, nurtured into lush fruitfulness. They were to cultivate and expand the awareness and knowledge of the glory of God!

As the garden was expanded, the grapes vine was to be trained to climb the trellis, the ox was to be trained to pull the plow, and the children were to be trained to live in awareness of the Lord’s holy companionship, to the uttermost boundaries!

The original great commission seemed to bite the dust, as Adam and Eve and their generations, on by one, did the same.

We were created from dust.

We return to dust.

But the Redeemer has a plan

To restore us from the dust again,

So, we may complete the first great commission.

BACK ON TASK!

ITS PLACE REMEMBERS IT NO MORE

Posted by on Dec 28, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

The life of mortals is like grass,

they flourish like a flower of the field;

the wind blows over it and it is gone,

and its place remembers it no more.Ps 103:15-16

 

The picture is of the Falkner High School’s baseball team. Grandpa Johnson is sitting on the floor, and his good friend Hugh Bedient is sitting in the middle. As you recall, Leslie as well as Hugh did well at baseball. Wait, don’t you remember?

If I asked today’s students and staff, “Do you remember Leslie Johnson?” they might roll back their eyes and search the memory banks. “Sorry, I don’t remember him.”

“O come on! Everyone knew Leslie! The picture doesn’t capture it but most of the time he was wearing a smile. He was the fun-loving guy everyone liked to be near. Come on, think about it! Leslie was captain of all his sports teams. A really friendly guy! He was especially good at baseball. He couldn’t play baseball at the University of Pennsylvania because he played semi-pro after high school.”

“Let me think…. When did he graduate?” 

“Oh, about 113 years ago.”

 

In time the slightest recollections are gone.

It may take a few generations but in time the rich, the beautiful, the villain and virtuous are forgotten.

The names, dates, and places may be studied by a few history students,

But in time historians lose interest as new history supplants the old.

But our lot is not found in an overgrown, forgotten grave!

Our Lot is with the LORD!

In fact, our loving Father has perfect recall! We are remembered!

Job gives us the first biblical reference to the resurrection of the dead in a prayer.

 

“If only you would hide me in the grave

and conceal me till your anger has passed!

If only you would set me a time

and then remember me!

If someone dies, will they live again?

All the days of my hard service

I will wait for my renewal to come.

You will call and I will answer you;

you will long for the creature your hands have made.

Surely then you will count my steps

but not keep track of my sin.

My offenses will be sealed up in a bag;

you will cover over my sin.  (Job 14:13-17)

 

You, my friend, are remembered!

MY NEW BEST FRIEND

Posted by on Dec 10, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

He seemed to have a snarl. He did not look friendly, but rather intimidating.

I could have avoided him. Instead I decided to buck up my courage,

let my guard down, and talk with him.

As I approached, I coached myself; “This could be your new best friend.”

Then I gave a cheerful, “Hello!”

 

It might have worked otherwise, but the man was approachable.

In fact, our chatting ended with the beginnings of friendship.

“Great to meet you!” “Likewise!”

 

When I am about to meet someone for the first time

I endeavor to activate important realities in my consciousness.

 

O, my Dear God, this is a creature made in your very image!

What a unique and precious work!

Help me to value this person as You do!

 

This person is certainly my superior in many ways.

I’m confident I will learn much from them!

 

All people are fascinating.

What makes this person amazing?

 

This person could become my new best friend!

 

There are many titles of distinction but one of the grandest is “Friend.” 

It’s sweet to me when I hear Jesus address a person as,“ Friend.”

Jesus prized people dearly. He was awake to their worth!

 

What was Jesus was thinking about, and anticipating, as He began a conversation?

 

Take up your courage, take a risk, and discover the marvel of your new best friend!

Listen to The Tangible River, Episode 2, from Riverfront Property!

Posted by on Oct 28, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

If I were to prophesy a river erupting from under the back door of your neighborhood beauty parlor,and then, divide into multiple rivers, what would you think? And if you should see it come to happen, with your own eyes, what would you do?

Five prophets tell of a dynamic river emerging from the city of Jerusalem!!!

Other prophets complement the theme!

I would be pleased and surprised to discover one Christian out of a hundred who is aware of this forth-coming phenomena, and has taken a few moments to ponder it. If I have my way, every believer in Christ will come to understand, and make preparations, for this River’s fresh genesis!

“Freely you have received; Freely give!”  (Matt 10:8)

Have a listen, freely, to Episode 2, The Tangible River, and let me know what you think!

 

In fact…, leave the book a review at Amazon below. This will help the message gain a hearing!

Overflow in our Lord’s abundant favor!

LEND ME YOUR EYES

Posted by on Jul 22, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

My world is enlarged through the beautiful, brown eyes of my wife. She is able to share with me perspectives and sights I would otherwise have sightlessly missed.

She was raised in Southeastern Oregon, in the high desert by a wildlife biologist. Her Dad often took her on drives and walks while he was doing game counts. He taught her to see. Often driving or walking with only the sound of the wind he would point and she was supposed to figure out what he was pointing at. Pam has an innate alertness and power to reach out with her eyes and perceive things, invisible to others. She took her natural genius for perception and developed it as one of her “Super Powers.”

When we would visit her old stomping grounds I would be impressed with the wide vistas, but the greys and brown of the desert were plain and drab to me. Pam on the other hand would be delighted to see all the shades, the angles of the craggy outcroppings, the orange and yellow lichen, the velvet texture of the Ponderosa pine, the quaking aspen and the scrubby juniper She would point out to me the rabbit brush and its shiny leaves compared to the tumble weeds ghost-like shadows.

While we drive the lonely roads, I have a vague, dull sense that there is a world about us, but Pam sees it all! Her telescopic eyes see the elk standing like a statue a half mile away, camouflaged into the hillside, and the doe and fawn bedded down under the juniper’s shadow. I see the hill.

She was by far the first to point out to the children the herd of deer silently moving away from our approach, the bald eagle soaring above the river, the young bobcat statue still, and other contours of the land.

I was born short-sighted. Pam was definitely born long-sighted, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t see things up close. Pam is able to see the  wee little horny toad skitter across the sand, lizards sun bathing lazily on the rock and the snake sliding quietly around the bush. None of these register in my senses.

From time to time I think of how Jesus said, “If you have eyes, use them to perceive. If you have ears, use them to comprehend.” My wife has exercised those senses as the athlete trains their muscles.

Having Pam with me rouses me from my bland, blinded stupor – reminding me there are things all about me to be discovered, realized, appreciated and wondered in. She has tutored me in the obvious, where the obvious beforehand was unreachable.

One of the greatest benefits of friendship is the gift of perspective. It pleases me when a friend says, “This is how I see it.”

Where we are dull friends point their floodlamps. When we see only monochrome they bring out the crayons and show us the colors. They brighten our lives by revealing the vivid liveliness we otherwise miss.

“Eyes that see and ears which hear, the Lord has made them both.

Steve Johnson (with a little help from Pam)

“Riverfront Property” Connecting in Audio!

Hi Friends,                               

Here’s a chance to listen to “The Primer” to, Riverfront Property: Connecting at the River of Life.

Keep on the lookout. I am freshly updating the book in audio and will be posting sections here!

LISTEN HERE!

 

THE PRIMER

This book is motivated by the conviction that history is about to be hijacked by Heaven. For the past two thousand years followers of Yeshua (Jesus) have been praying, “May Your kingdom come on our planet just as it prevails in the highest Heaven.” A colossal answer is bulging above us and about to splash forth with the Return of the King!

Anticipation stimulates preparation. What grander project can there be than preparing a landing strip for our Monarch? I pray Riverfront Property will stimulate those longing for His coming – those preparing the way.

It’s heartening to see little signs and wonders demonstrating this venture is birthed from His heart.  Our daughter Claire had a dream where I was working in a huge library. I was studying about water and was preparing to make a presentation. I told Claire in the dream she too should study about water.  On another occasion a young prophetic friend told me, “God has given you ‘a roar’ like rushing water.”  One woman said Pam and I are like deep wells with fresh, clean water. No one knew I had been working on this project.

You are about to discover two distinct “rivers of Life”.  One refers to a future, tangible watercourse flowing out of a city you find on a map, Jerusalem. You will be able to travel to this river, dangle your feet in it and swim there.  Fruit trees will drink from the river. You may walk the shore munching their delectable produce!

“The river of life” is used in another sense, as an inner spiritual river – the Holy Spirit given those embracing Yeshua. This spiritual river transports us into joy and purpose and glory! You will realize dynamic transformation and empowerment through its gentle stillness, and mighty surging!

It is not enough to enjoy this river alone. Many live in Death Valley, shriveled by dehydration. Our lives cannot be complete until we learn how to be conduits and imparters of the river’s dynamism. There is satisfaction for ourselves, and blessing for others, as we communicate this river.

Wherever this river flows things will live! Its resurrection life is welcome news to millions! We are everlastingly grateful to The River Master. This book is ultimately about knowing and walking with Him by the riverfront. He is the guide for both the outer, tangible river and the inner, spiritual river. As you read on and comprehend this river you may find it a complement when someone says, “You’re all wet!”

The one thing this book lacks is the dynamic interaction possible in the Riverfront Property Seminar. Learning about the two rivers of life and how to navigate those streams comes much easier when in good company. If you can’t make a conference I suggest you read Riverfront Property with a group of friends who know, or long to know, the liquid realities of, “Christ in you.”

For those who must read the last chapter first to find the conclusion let’s save some page flipping. When they ask, “What was the book about? What did you learn?” you may answer, “Follow the Lamb and He will lead you to the Waters of Life.”

 

 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;

He will lead them to springs of living water.

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Rev 7:17)

A Train! A Train! A Train!

Posted by on Jan 23, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

LISTEN HERE 

The lights flashed, the big polls would fold down and the bells would ding! A train was coming! We would jump up and down on the back seat (before seatbelts) shouting, “A train, a train, a train!” Count the cars. Look at the shapes, and letters on the side. What’s inside those cars? Where is it going? We were full of awe and wonder! What happened to that magical delight?

Adulthood sucks out of us the capacity for astonishment. The downgrade attitudes of “Been there, done that, seen that,” demonically pillage us of the capacity for amazement. The evil spirits whisper, “The train is boring.” Demons may even shout, “This train is an offense to the god of hurry!”

“The thief comes to kill, steal and destroy” the entrancement we find in steam coming off the soup, water ripples in the bathtub and curtains wrinkling in the breeze.

Wonder is the springboard into worship. We live in stark poverty without it. Who will save us and restore the wonder? The answer comes from Isaiah 11:6: “… a little child will lead them.”

Only a child can rescue us! Jesus, of course, was never plundered of His wonderment. Even as an adult He was able to be fascinated by the birds and flowering grass. He warned adults we would be hopelessly lost without child-likeness.

The prescription is to find a child to teach us the amazing world of flashlights in dark bedrooms, the enchanting fragrances of spices in the cupboard and the way a spider weaves a web. These are things every adult should learn! With remedial help from qualified children we can recover wonderment.

Look! A train, a train, a train!
