Ro 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Php 1:20 According to my earnest expectation ( apokaradoxia) and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.
Earnest expectation: The grammatical trilogy, apokaradoxia, is defined as:
“Standing on your tip toes with a neck fully outstretched and eyes peering, excitedly anticipating good results.”
To this Paul would say, “Earnest expectation and hope are the mothers of salvation.”
Eph 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
“Many men, many minds,” says the world, when believers differ much and contend much, and are at no pains to preserve and manifest the unity wrought by the Spirit.” Pulpit Commentary
Of which I am also guilty, if I may add, of not keeping the unity of the Spirit.
I learned that the unity of the Spirit is already a fact.
I enter into this revelation of unity, by my life of peace.
Peace, I say, I keep, when I don’t become anxiously swayed by the events of this world, especially corrupt and reprobate Washington politics. Lord, help me on this day to keep the unity of your Spirit by living an undistracted life. Amen!
“That is, unanimity; this keeps all together which else will shatter and fall asunder. The daughter of dissension is dissolution, saith Nazianzen.” John Trapp
Ro 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Eph 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace Eph 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Access into the things of the Holy Spirit is proportional to our bond of peace, manifested as freedom from distractions to this present word system.
This manifestation of peace fosters restful confidence, and with it, an arising faith which allows access into the things of the Spirit.
We have instant and full access into all things of the Spirit.
God is timeless.
Full access is for now.
Accessibility and availability into our inheritance in God’s Spirit occurs through our peace, which by it, allows us to tap into the unanimity or oneness of the Spirit, where all things of God making up His inheritance, are timelessly and seamlessly kept in unanimity.
Accessibility is immediate, results are progressive.
The zenith of a razor sharp anointing is found in the bond of peace.
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
“One faith.” Faith does not signify creed, or truth believed, but it signifies confidence in the one Lord-faith, the subjective oneness of which is created and sustained by the unity of its object. John Eadie
Faith is the substance and evidence of God’s things which are not seen to the naked eye.
The greater your discernment of an invisible object, the greater the faith which that object will generate, because you are discerning its substance, which is faith.
God’s invisible objects are all kept in the unanimity of the Spirit.
The greater our peace and our access into the unanimity of an invisible object, the greater will be our discernment of it, and the greater will be our faith, or the faith generated through the discernment of the substance of the invisible object, which is its faith.
This Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 marks the 40th year of the appalling ruling by now deceased Supreme Court Judge Harry Blackbum legalizing abortion under the semblance of Roe vs. Wade. This year marks one generation of millions, as President Obama said, of the most vulnerable among us, killed, and millions of mothers emotionally scarred. This year marks what all the Sandy Hooks, Auroras, Littleton, Colorado, Vietnams, Iraqi and Afghanistan’s Wars cumulatively combined could not scratch its surface. This year marks the ongoing evolution of a culture of death, in supposedly the most advanced country in the world. This Tuesday as news aggregator Matt Drudge adeptly said will be commemorated by, “There will be over 3,500 killed in USA today from abortion. No flags lowered, no presidents crying. No media hyperventilating. Normal day,”
Two inaugurations, twenty-four hours apart.
The inauguration of the most abortion minded president in American history, followed twenty-four hours later by the inauguration of the 40th year of legalized abortion.
And what does God think of all of this, I wonder?
On Gun Control
My take on gun law is the following. I am for meaningful and constructive laws meant to deteriorate the activity of the bad guy. However, when gun law restricts the ability of a law abiding citizen to protect himself from the bad guy, and more so, attempts to weaken or disarm him against a possible overtake by a tyrannical government, that’s a big no no. I fled from a country where the tyrant leader came with a Bible in his hands saying, “Weapons, for what?” While he said that, my father’s two businesses were taken from him by three men that had guns. My home in Cuba was ransacked by soldiers who had guns while its leader told us, “weapons for what?” To you who have philanthropic viewpoints about the great society without weapons that will only happen in heaven, when its leader, Jesus Christ governs, and can be trusted. But on this side of eternity, the world is full of evil people who are salivating at the chops to conquer weaker people. A nation cannot disarm itself. Every nation that was disarmed fell into the hands of evil tyrants. If we want real gun control, let us turn back to God as a nation, for the ills of the violence which we face now, are all rooted in our rejection of Him. Reserve your noble ideas for heaven, please.
I see true leadership at what I think could be an all-time low. If you have something that will bless humanity, you will have step up to the plate and do it. The times of waiting for the other guy to do it instead of you may never come back. Step into the heat of the battle trusting God fully, with the attitude of whatever may come, let it come. Be ready to sacrifice fame and fortune for what God has placed in your heart. With all due respect, Facebook posts and article links will not make the change, not even my blog!
