Remnant Network - 21
"If God were your father, you would love me, for I came from God and arrived here.
I didn't come on my own.
He sent me.
Why can't you understand one word I say?
You can't handle it.
You're from your father, the Devil, and all you want to do is please him.
He was a killer from the very start.
He couldn't stand the truth because there wasn't a shred of truth in him.
When the Liar speaks, he makes it up out of his lying nature
and fills the world with lies.
I arrive on the scene, tell you the plain truth, and
you refuse to have a thing to do with me.
Can any one of you convict me of a single misleading word, a single sinful act?
But if I'm telling the truth, why don't you believe me?
Anyone on God's side listens to God's words.
This is why you're not listening - because you're not on God's side!"
If you read the last edition, you know my age.
My spirit was born anothen in October 2011 with Eugene and my covenant brothers.
Physically, I feel like I'm 39 - more energy than ever before.
Intellectually, I feel like I'm 12 - just scratching the surface as I pray and labor in the confession/repentance of John David Burton: "Years of school prompt my distrust of and disinterest in the academic."
Emotionally, I feel like I'm 62 - increasing strong calm sanity concomitant to increasing intimacy with Jesus.
Spiritually, I feel like I'm 25 - born anothen as an undershepherd as I've returned/rebirthed to Jesus by the book.
In other words, people in Belvidere and Boone County who want pastors to be "errand boys for their wandering desires" (Dylan) along with denominational jingoists/idolaters of any franchise will have to continue praying I die with Grandpa Jacob's genes yet stop wasting time/energy/emotion praying I will exit for a greener pasture that is someone else's brown field.
Ain't goin' nowhere nohow unless I'm assassinated, burned at the stake by apostates who've made up stuff to replace divine revelation in keeping with their egocentric rationalizations, get my head chopped off by Islamonutballed fruitcakes because I don't play the same politically correct and candor vacuous games as BBPBHO and his/its ilk who accommodate/enable evil by not calling it for what it is for reasons that only the spiritually mature get, or satisfy the secret wishes of people who long to be proven correct for why I should wear a helmet according to their comprehensive knowledge juxtaposed to years of personal riding experience.
Talk about caffeine.
Besides, I like living in Belvidere, Illinois and being one of the undershepherds on the corner of Lincoln and Main.
Heaven, it took nearly a decade to...
"Sometimes revival don't mean bringin' people in...but gettin' the people out who don't love Jesus and all His children."
"And, day by day, the Lord added to their number those who were being saved!"
That's why I stay on the corner of L&M.
I don't wanna live anywhere else in the world; and that includes Arizona, Florida, or even...Iowa.
Of course, I mean Illinois moins Chicago.
Like Corey from 1st Baptist as fans of the Yankees, Giants, Knicks, and Rangers, I have no loyalties to the Cubs, Sox, Bulls, Bears, or Blackbirds; which means we have no loyalty to America's "second city" in so many ways except for political corruption.
Fortunately, though Chicago leads the nation if not world in political corruption, the current President along with Governor and senior U.S. Senator of Illinois were never infected.
They remain as pure and perfect in every way as their idolaters herald/pretend.
Yeah, and I will be elected moderator of the PCUSA in 2016.
While defying logic and ethics, there's a pretty good probability that Illinois' incumbent Governor and senior U.S. Senator are goin' to be re-upped in a few weeks.
People around the country think it's because people in Illinois are accommodating and enabling...or betraying collective IQ paralleling Miley Cyrus.
Really, it's not true.
If it were not for Chicago, no way the current P would have ever been elected to the Senate and no way Blago's buddies would ever be re-upped.
If Illinois had an electoral college representing land mass and not just the really, really, really gross voting populations of Chicago's living and buried, no way...
Maybe that's why increasing Illini want to kick out Chicago and force it to be its own state.
Illinois is a great state with great people with faith and morality hardly akin to the corrupt politics and ethics of that bag of windy city.
Don't get me wrong.
Love the hot dogs.
Love Ernie and Ron and Michael and the Fridge and Ditka and...
Forget the pizza - Hunts on Wonderbread!
Remember, I'm a Big Apple fan.
Almost gotta stop here 'cause I just made a connection to remnant.
Let me put it another way.
Illinois would love to do without Chicago.
Chicago needs Illinois if it's ever gonna...
Almost gotta stop here 'cause I just...
Or, maybe, it's time to start another fire in Chicago if you know what He means.
I'm convinced, praying to be proven wrong, many/most (you speculate) people who identify more with a political party or denomination or any other institution/organization than Jesus by the book would elect the evil one by name if it were nominated to...
Blessings and Love!
