A DISCERNABLE RELATIONSHIP 6-1-11
I wrote a book called The Perfect Bride. The thesis was that God took the 8 virtues
found in second peter 1:5-7 and set them as a discernable trek for the relations between God and humanity. Further He uses these virtues over time to perfect His bride over the course of history through the seven church ages prophetically depicted in Revelations Chapter 2-3.
What this taught me is that a relationship with God is not mystical or ethereal but comprehensive. So comprehensive that it is discernable in the tempest of rhetoric practiced by most of humanity. One can know where they stand before God and interpret circumstance through that standing. This means that fruit inspectors can be easily identified as jackassas and that and that their voice is a fraud, contrarian to God. It also allows God’s children to recognize His work in and through every deception.
When you as my client jump on the band wagon of rhetoric you axiomatically condemn yourself. For if you were obedient to God you would have no complaint no matter what the truth of my behavior was, also if you understood the comprehensive nature of your relationship with God you would be able to judge me rightly. In your complaint you prove you are not properly relating to God. Not in the course His love has dictated for you to walk.
How much I would have liked it for my clients to understand the love of Christ working on their behalf through Scott and me to bring them deliverance and supporting that work in prayer. Then all of us could share in the glory of God’s mighty work. But thank God His love does not advance upon us because we have earned it. No by His grace He loved us while we were yet sinners. So even if you fought against your own deliverance, hated the source of God’s provision, doubted you choice or involvement in God’s plan, or ridiculed shamefully, Christ will finish the work His love began. It is my hope that when the testimony of His love is complete and all the frauds are embarrassed that next time you will discern His love advancing upon you and patiently trust its care.
A few have read this book and can now speak toward the revelation of the thesis being true of not. If it is true speak truth on this blog and encourage the wayward to find the discernable course of relationship with God. That is the hope of all my writing and why I have maintained this blog in the long delay of love’s course.
