FORTY YEARS!

Posted 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 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 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 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 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!
