the mighty lion
a symbol of power and freedom
that power and freedom are captured and placed in a zoo
the only thing he can do here is assume the position
all other rights have been stripped away.
i find that there is a similar issue within the church today we have taken the power and freedom away from the very one who has given it freely to us.
Such a huge tragedy that men and women of God are handcuffed and placed behind a wall or fence and restricted from moving in the power of the Holy One, the majestic King of Glory.
There is an ever increasing unbelief that there is no power only a name.
i'm supposed to be endowed with the power of Holy Spirit in my life . A power to change me from glory to glory and for the fruit of the Spirit to be prevalent, having a freedom within me to be like a tree beside the river of life, bearing fruit in all seasons and conditions.
i am wondering about the ministries and ministers i have come to know that will have to answer for grieving Holy Spirit from doing all he was given authority to do. Will they have to answer to an angry God over their control issues and placing all effort into one aspect of the Kingdom business and pushing down the other features because they failed to see results in their own lives, therefore it must not exist for others.
How duped have we been by a liar and the one who can only go about "as a roaring lion", who's power was stripped away and made a public spectacle of before the whole world and heavens?
Col. 2:13-15 "He forgave all our sins, having cancelled the written code with all its regulations, that was against us, that stood opposed to us; he took it away nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them triumphing over them by the cross."
Today we seem to hardly have the power to rise up in our spirit just to praise such an awesome God and Father in Heaven who has done these things for us in Christ.
We are the temple... "let us come in through the gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise." Let this be alive in us continually.
God forbid that we become like those descibed in the last days in 2 Timothy 3.
In Isaiah 55:1, there is an invitation to the thirsty. "Come all who are thirsty, come to the waters: and you who have no money, come buy and eat! Come buy wine and milk without money and without cost."
There is another passage about buying in Rev. 3:17,18.
"You say I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing! But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve for your eyes so you can see."
i do not want to lose my thirst for more of the Kingdom in my life, nor to stop going after the treasures of Heaven.
What is the cost for us who have no money?

The pen is mightier than the sword someone has said... at this moment i can't recall who said it! It doesn't matter.
i write on my blog, because i can.
Whether anyone other than a select few actually read it matters not.
It helps clear my head of jumbled thoughts, hopes, dreams and it's a release for my inner person.
Things written don't have to make sense to anyone else. It can be good therapy.
While suffering as a younger man with depression, writing was one of the things that helped keep me sane, rescuing me from the torment pounding inside my head.
Artists, musicians, poets, sculptors; every sorted member of these type mindsets needs an avenue of escape for their particular unique vision, dream scape, an outlet for their creative genius.
We are fearfully and wonderfully made... Ps. 139
There was genius in our creation. This is such an understatement to our creator.
i am saddened by those who refuse to see this. They would deny their very own specific, unique, person, even the DNA that is impossible to duplicate and would rather accept a random throw of the dice and say this is creation and i'm just a human being, a mammal with no particular function but to live and to die.
The seagull is drafting the air alongside of the boat we were using as we returned from watching whales in the Atlantic ocean off the coast of Gloucester Mass.
He is closer to the will of God than i am, because he is doing perfectly what he was created to do.
He doesn't have to think about it, nor have a debate in his mind, nor choose good or bad at the beginning of his day. He doesn't have to prove himself to anyone or worry about being judged for the things he will do during the day or at the end of his lifetime. He exists to do the perfect will of God in all and every circumstance and is at the right place at the right time for his life to be complete.
And... the only work he has to do is get to where the food for this day is going to be provided for him. In this case where the whales were feeding and when he was finished he hopped a ride on the current of wind from our boat, drafting alongside for the 45 minute ride back to shore.
He is also fearfully and wonderfully made!
