DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

Invitation to Apply... The Blood

COME:
1 Peter 4
6 For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. 

HEAR:
Jesus preached the Gospel to all those in Hades and in Abraham's Bosom before ascending from the dead to greet Mary at the tomb. I have become fully convinced, as I learn both the Mercy/Grace side of God and the Justice/Judgement side of God,  that there is not one human on earth past or present from Adam to the final man/woman/child that will spend an eternity separated from God without having a chance to accept His gift.

There are many who will become so hardened through life that they will reject it, which makes our influence in the World SO MUCH more important. However God is not sending people to hell because the post office lost/miss-delivered His invitation in the mail.

Everyone on earth has been forgiven of sin. You are not in need of forgiveness you have it. You've had it since before the foundation of the world. What you are in need of is the application of the blood to your life. If you fail to apply the blood, even though it's been provided, your house is not protected. That applies to this life and the life to come. You are in need of knowing about the forgiveness that was purchased and accept it.

The offer is a trade. You trade your life for His. He takes your sin and you take His righteousness.

It has been proved out over and over that seeing is not believing. Many people see "Evidence" and believe it when it was made up or false. Others see evidence of something true and choose not to believe. Just because you see something doesn't mean you will believe it. Just because something is offered doesn't mean you will accept it.

I know of a man who was offered birthday presents every year by his son. One year, he returned them all, years worth, unopened. He had taken them... but not received them. You can know about Jesus, without accepting Him. You can preach Him, but not KNOW Him.

Contrarily, you can NOT know of Him, but be introduced to him and accept. Paul prayed a SHORT salvation prayer... "LORD, what do you want me to do?!". I don't know how many times I've heard of near death experiences, but one bears mentioning here.

A young lady was living in sin, she'd heard of Jesus in a cursory manner like most Americans, but was not church-ed. She was living in sin, drugs, etc. She was stabbed one night by a man who just wanted to use her. As she lay there on the ground she suddenly felt light. She stood up and looked down to see her body laying there. She was fully aware of everything around her. It was just as though she wasn't dead but the pain was gone. A door opened up in front of her and a bright light streamed in. Jesus stepped through the door and began to talk with her. He told her about His blood and her choice. She chose Him. He then gave her the choice of coming back to heaven with Him or staying on earth to complete His real calling for her. She chose to stay. Since then she has had a ministry of healing and bringing deliverance to hospitals and churches to the sick and dying.

What happened here? We failed to reach that young woman, so Jesus stepped in and did it. He will NOT let anyone go without the choice. He said he'd leave the 99 and go out to get the 1. He does it time and again. But we, the church, could have reached her before that stabbing. I know, because I know His heart, that people were called to reach out before and didn't.

DO:
I must begin to work on having HIS heart for people and loving with HIS love. Seeing people for who they are in Him. Praying for them actively, not passively. Asking the Holy Spirit, how can I assist you today, in this situation?

PRAYER:
Father, make me more like you. Show me, day by day, how to walk out YOUR love for people. Starting at home.

Reference:
Ephesians 2:13-21 (New King James Version)
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. 18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. 19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, 21 in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,

Colossians 1:19-21 (New King James Version)
19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. 21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled

2 Corinthians 5:18-20 (New King James Version)
18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.

Exodus 12:22 NAS
"You shall take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and apply some of the blood that is in the basin to the lintel and the two doorposts ; and none of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning.

Revelation 13:8 NKJV
All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

I am a story teller! Time to flex my story telling...

In the spirit of sharing what I'm up to this weekend, here is a short scene I posted on my fiction blog a while back. This is being used an example for a new trial project I'll talk about at the end of this post.


The Closet (originally posted on my fiction practice blog here). 
It was the sound. It washed over his mind, like a shower on the inside. Water landing on pavement, concrete, and wood; as though beating a million tiny drums. The distant sound of the tiny river, washing down the sidewalks into the gutters. Ash always slept with the window open, but most especially on rainy nights.

We are no closer now to getting to the bottom of this, than we were when it started.

The rest of the house was asleep, but he couldn't find sleep. The air shifted slightly, and he felt he wasn't alone. Ash sat up straight, and at the edge of his bed sat a man. He was wearing blue jeans, a T-shirt, and a well kept beard. His hair was pulled back into a pony tail, and he smiled. The man'…

I am a WRITER!

WRITERI am a writer:Yesterday was incredible! I received revelation and clarity for 2014. I AM A WRITER! Jeff Goins talks about making that declaration being the most revolutionary part of his career. Everything changed when he decided that. It's amazing what clarity will do for you.

I was being torn between what I was becoming passionate about and what I thought I was supposed to be doing. For years everyone has told me that I should be a musician and in audio mixing. I pursued that career this year. I even took an audio course. I know that is still part of my calling. Music and Audio is in there somewhere. But it's not my focus for 2014. I am a writer. I'm going to explore that solely this year.

The moment of realization hit me when my wife, who has always seen more in me than I see in myself turned to me pointed out that even during my audio class I didn't talk about it. I didn't read the books and find new books and get "into it". It was mostly focused …
