LUKEWARM!

Abba, I fear

I am growing lukewarm,

many a passing are the years,

many men have been warned,

why do so many act as if they cannot hear?

I have lost heart!

I no longer desire to pray

for men who wish to live a life apart,

I no longer wish to cry out night and day.

I feel as tho I am alone

for lukewarm I have grown,

Yahweh’s rebuke I do fear

the rod that chastens is drawing near,

with the passing of the many years.

Yes, I am sure lukewarm I have grown

in sackcloth and ashes on my face

bent over to the ground in this place

as I feel so all alone.

Has my heart turned to stone?

Lukewarm is my sin I make it known,

Lukewarm I am spat out on the ground

hell’s angels now dance around.

For I have been the most complacent of fools

complying with the world’s woos.

My lukewarm heart I cast at Yeshua’s feet

prostrate I wait for Abba to speak.

I have had a hard time deciding what to do with this post for I was thinking it was incomplete. A friend and sister in Christ was nearly at the same time writing a post on this subject and I have found it helps complete this poem. So please take the time to read it here is the link: http://wordscroll.org/2013/04/25/come-back-quickly/

Jack’s Love List

Years ago when I started my walk with Jesus I had some mighty good men who came into life to help me grow. One of these men was Jack the Plumber it did not take Jack long to realize my mind does not work like most people. Jack has great Bible knowledge, discernment, wisdom  and the gift of interpretation when talking with someone who is ADD and/or ADHD (me). To do this one must be able to keep tract of and be able to change topics on fifteen different subjects, that are being discussed at the same time. The reason is that thoughts fly in and out and back in and back out of my mind at the speed of light or faster. So if I understand the world to be right: as compared to the rest of the world my mind is a Dyslexic ADD and/or ADHD blender of thoughts. That means I think real fast on many different things at the same time backwards, but Jack was a man of prayer and loved me anyway.

 

One day Jack told me that a lot of really good things come out of my mouth and I should write them down. Maybe one day I could go back to these little tidbits of knowledge God has given and do something with them. Jack gave me a little black book, called Jack’s Love List, in which to write them down so I did!  For fun here is a little insight on the workings of my mind. Here are some of them in no peculiar order:

1.) Churchly Christianity is what the world sees on Sundays it is plat-formed. It is not that what has been plat-formed is wrong, but life cannot operate from a plat-form. Jesus lived His daily life alongside of people, so then if I follow Christ I must live my life alongside of people.

2.) Getting sheep to move is one of the hardest things a shepherd has to do. Sheep like to eat. Sheep do not like to move. Sheep need to get up and go some place and not stay in one place and eat. The problem is if sheep keep eating in the same place is they always get down to stubble. Is there anything worst tasting than STUBBLE?

3.) Comfort in the Greek is paraklesis: or to mean come alongside because you are invited. When a vessel at sea is in distress the aiding vessel must be invited to come alongside to give aid. Is it not also true the Holy Spirit works the same way He must be invited?

4.) You cannot get a sheep out of the muck without getting mucky. If you are going to free a lost lamb from the brier patch you will not do it without getting scratched.

 

5.) If I see a need and I can meet that need, that is my calling to serve right now. My fruit is always for someone else.

6.) Can men of Christ today shake the world, if we men are willing to pray as fervently and unceasingly as the early church men did, mirroring their faith and unity?

 

7.) All the lost angels of hell cannot withstand two of God’s weakest Saints praying in unity.

 

8.) A man with a seeking spirit becomes a genuine man of prayer. That means men who are self-satisfied, content with the status Quo of the church, and the world about them will never be men of prayer.

 

9.) My prayer life is not for me it is for others for I have seen what God can do. Like Moses I want to see God’s Glory I remember when I first read about Moses talking mouth to mouth to God. I told people I want to do that, they said God does not do that anymore. Well Moses was not talking to God about himself he was talking to God about his people. I still want to do that talk mouth to mouth with God: My prayer life is not for me!

 

10.) God is always on time and His timing is always perfect. I have learned God never does His work by my schedule even if I say He is four days late.

Just ten of the thoughts that fly in and out and in and out of my mind I was able to put down on paper. Some day I will share more for there are millions!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Golden Bowls of Tears

At the altar

broken-hearted brothers’ and sisters’ painful

tears fall like rain.

 with golden bowls angels they come

to collect our tears of pain.

 God’s angels ferry

golden bowls of tears

to our Christ’s nail scared hands.

Our Christ pours as He weeps

 golden bowls of tears

 upon our Abba Father’s feet.

Tears of pearls, rubies, and sapphires

cascade down

tears dancing, shinning, glimmering

exploding into incense oh so sweet.

Honeysuckle, lilacs, roses

 no earthy fragrant can compete

with those tears poured out

 upon Abba Father’s feet.

 Tear filled clouds fragrant scent

reach heaven’s most High court

as Abba Father begins to weep.

Abba speaks

Let My power flow

Let My healing Power Flow

to my earthly Children below.

All earth’s painful tears fall

into heaven’s golden bowls,

when My earthly Children weep.

VISITORS!

VISITORS

In my post “A Son Off the Edge” I wrote about a visitor I had when I was in the ICU, I called her a nurse. My wife had never heard this story before till she read it before I posted it and she said the nurse was an angel.

Anthony Baker commented with his story about a visitor he had when he was in an ER for some repair work. I ask him if it might have been the same nurse? I will post both stories and ask you to please comment on what you think? I would also like for everyone who has a similar story to please add it to this post. If you know of someone who has a similar story please send them here to add their story.

Thank-you!

James’ story,

A day or so later I was awaken in ICU by a nurse. I could not make out her features for my eyes could not focus yet. She was soft-spoken and gentle for she came to bathe me. She was dressed in white and had a bit of a glow to her and the words she spoke I shall never forget. To this day I have never told anyone about what she said to me, for some unknown reason, I shall today.

As she washed away all the dried blood and dirt these are Her words, “God wants you know He still loves you. He said to tell you He is going to take back what is His. He wants to heal you right now, He will put your toes back on. He will stop the pain and you can get up right now and walk out of here. All you have to do is love Him. But you are not going to do that He said for you are a strong-willed one and a fighter. You will walk and run again and your body will be as strong as it has ever been. God is going to let you lose everything even the way you think. For you will no longer be able to think and solve the problems in the manner you do now. Your body is going to know pain all the days of your life.” She left the room and I have never seen or heard of her again. Every word of what she said to me came true.

Anthony’s story,

When I was laying (lying?) on a stainless steel emergency room table having my face sewn back on after inhaling the horn of a flipped-over ’67 fastback Mustang, a “nurse” whom I could not see stayed with me and held my hand. No one remembered her being there but me.

I have to add a little to that story, James. I was so messed up that my mother, a career medical professional, could not stay in the room with me – her own son. I hurt so badly because the nerve damage wouldn’t permit any pain-killing shots to work – everything just drained down my throat, while I felt every stitch. My face was so swollen I couldn’t see a thing.

Then this “person” came up beside me (“I’ll send a Comforter”), spoke with a female voice (because I am sure a male voice wouldn’t have been as comforting), and said, “Whenever it hurts, just squeeze my hand. I’ll stay here with you.” James, I was a martial artist who could break boards with those hands. I must have squeezed hard enough to break every bone in “her” hand. Yet, I was never alone. Praise God, I was never alone.

Later, I wanted to find this “nurse,” or whatever. Somebody said that they think they saw a candystriper (volunteer) that day, but they weren’t sure. Nobody knew who it was that held my hand. Now seriously, James. This was a major hospital ER. Nobody just walks in without anybody having a clue who the person is.

Yes, God blessed us.

Anthony
