Watch Words 2016
29/12: New Years Eve, God willing, I'll be putting, and praying up - watch words.
Two from this year I'm brewing on, something Mark Passio said. Ostensibly: All selfishness is Satanic (his term). Out of the back of that, I'd like to try and expand what I consider could be revelation.
And: Dead already a word from Alex Jones.
Not downers but uppers.
Up for midnight. And more.
Edited 1/16 (original 31/12).:
(The two words above should be written up, but not for this post).
I intend to bullet point others out. For any not having read previous posts that explain the intent:
Plant a Seed attempts the prophetic. Strip that down, could be a said to be; God communicating specifically through ‘words and images’, something for the times, that speaks of/into the future.
Or, in other arts, expressions and/or ‘prophetic acts’ that speak - consciously and/or otherwise - to humans, and speak into the ‘beyond’. The purpose is to collaborate with God, bringing about God’s realm On-This-Planet. Now... on...
These words are mostly for present power in prayer, as opposed to the over-worn notion it's necessarily a prediction. The element about the future is fulfillment. Faith, the active element. Somehow our holding and releasing can be decisive in the fulfillment. And so the unseen is changed, which translates materially now and - as it happens.
I consider my efforts weak and small but there's virtually nothing publicly - at least on the internet - being released, held and delivered.
Start with Stanley Kubrick by way of Matt Drudge.
Matt told Alex that it was important for him to do his report etc regardless of public approval. For him it was what 'he' wanted, or needed, to read or hear. I accept there’s provisos on this, but believe we have to speak to ourselves and, as best we can, seek ‘higher power/personality’.
The internet is our valuable stream. A save-the-nations, opportunity. The mass reticence to communicate on it (for another post maybe), is one of the single most irresponsible practical acts humanity takes (with our relatively free access).
Plant a Seed will begin to include written (some already published, some personal) prayers. If you come here, read them - please push yourself - out loud. Repeat and again...
The word here is; prayer isn’t about sounding like we're praying but: More = working, less = not.
(Talking of which, upgrade passwords on ICT. Size matters on this, over and above unpredictable combos, but do both).
‘Prayer’ is lots of things but praying ‘is’ or not. Don’t judge through feelings, and from some kind of entertainment, artistic, oratory perspective. Do a lot. “Now... quick...” And later, fast, slow, on the way, before, after, during... in a huddle on the bed, scrunch up, wave about, get down, jump up.
To confession and Stanley: Four years of considerable numbers of establishment connections and visitors on the '2001' set (nicknamed ‘NASA east’). On ‘The Shining’ - no one but the tightest and smallest crew all signed up to secrecy.
Came upon the following, just now, quickly reminding myself of the date Finally, after what seems like about 30 years of delays, re-shoots, star substitutions and more delays, Stanley Kubrick's psychosexual thriller Eyes Wide Shut finally has a release date. (Empire).
I assume the writer wasn’t aware re his turn of phrase. Someone alleges the stipulation for this release date was not on only typically micro-mgr.SK, but this was conspicuously contractually, agreed.
I approached ‘The Shining and the Moon’ (Truthscoop), to find those who could offer a character based witness; why SK would/n’t pull a wind-up -or- reference a related but not-hoax connected purpose? Or are these... - “and I’m stretching it here” - coincidences?
Could SK have been blackmailed, conned, gone dark/gone light..?
What seems likely is SK has to... had to, put this in his movie-making. Compelled, for no other reason than what built Drudge a SK like reputation in news aggregation; SK films were for him and his need to get what’s digging him inside, out. Therefore confession in this context is about passion to release the cry and wail, the transference into the material. Very prophetic-like.
I will make a photo/graf (an SK quote) and use it to springboard on this:
God causeth to sprout from the ground every tree desirable for appearance, and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Earlier: Alex interviewing Pastor Manning not only played a song (The Byrds) that is a past-coincidence nod. And then glory-be, two Christians prescient and ambassador-looking. (Just one small nig/I’ll get to). I only switch on Jones at a whim. Tonight, caught this alone. (Although I did catch an extremely proficient Rob Dew over the break).
The good and evil ‘tree’ is a current exercise for me, that came up, as did my watchword verse from this last few musing days:
When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.
What to name this word? Let’s bring another while at it: First Principles. And deal with the niggle.
Judge Napalitano at Ron’s 80th spoke of his first principles. For me, Manning and Jones kept it so tight and right-on tonight. No talking what’s going to happen from disputed biblical interpretations. Keeping that stumbling block down isn't about my disagreement but the groans for those who understandably don't make head nor tail of this vision.
At the end Alex gave a perfectly delivered call to “come”. About as non-religious and Jesus-wise as I’ve heard. Certainty on ‘air’ (except yet again, previously by him).
Articulates this: The Gospel ‘is’ the call to awoken based action and, in as far as can, engagement with the ‘other’.
(And what if this is/personality, and all exactly as seen in Christ?)
The meeting God is also, in/when... AS we go do", Alex rightly explains.
(Hear this interview for yourself, a terrific end to 2015).
Openness and... Conviction. I wasn’t necessarily waiting for Manning to drop a clanger but having only briefly heard him before... expectations are, that he might. So, on the quibble? It was Manning's referencing the ‘man for man’ line. Mentioned but not pursued.
Here's my call - and God's I believe - to discern: Is 'homosexuality and God' in all and every aspect; a first, or second - here I’m using the word - principle?
Compare this to, 'teaching young children at school sexual ethics'?
This is the difference between these questions. The second one is 'first principles' and should be protested. But the first question..?
Here’s a key: If Christians, insist on making the first one first, what happens to the second one?
Gay not of God? Sure, your interpretation? The Book of Revelation all about specific mapping of future Islam and anti-Christ speculations? Whatever..?
I won’t go-on but the word is preach Christ alone (first principles) and keep the genuinely disputable as... genuinely...
Bring whatever up? All good, but... offer the questions and perceived subtleties of argument, similar to what happens, on wide variety of other issues. Qualification...
And not on some select-hot-potatoes, undertake eyes-closed, double-standards.
Go into and... teach everything I commanded.
How many commands did Jesus explicitly give? Two: Love God and love them all.
Is our theological position re gay ‘people’ (sorry, but that’s just what the evidence looks like),or Muslims; articulated with sufficient wisdom and gentleness to respecting individuals, and what God is seeking to do with and possibly 'in' them?
Transsexuals might appal and disturb (some/you?) and certainly is connected to futurist planners attack on nontraditional family but can we please watch ‘how’ this is expressed?
How often can kindness be more important than truth itself? Or perhaps looking Jesus-way: Jesus, was truth, as much for what he said, as how he said it. And actions accompanying. Actually Jesus wasn’t talking so ‘originally' but oh ‘how’ he spoke. ‘None like’, prophesied Isaiah.
I have some more but may it seep and whistle out in 2016.
Let’s end on (a) Trump, and Jones.
I did play the Roger Stone/AJ interview, and hearing Manning on the three-hour meeting, both provide compelling character-based assessments on Donald Trump, hard not to conclude this one might be cut from a different cloth. I should put him as a Twitter follower, I certainly have no-less reason (much more), to hear what he has to say, than some I do. Like Putin, at least there’s some real doubt he’s sham.
Final word: Donald and Alex are not to be listened to and followed if they do their jobs. Because, final word function proceeds title. Therefore, if they want to be biblical about it, (and AJ does/do this),in a sense they'll discourage followers (an audience) and never tire from calling that we build an army (participators).
2016 we need thousands of infowars to be planted. (Incidentally, this parallels the need for independent church planting).
Here's a final word: To accept as wide-as-possible diversity within a strategic evaluation of wider and loftier goals. Unnecessary disagreements, or at least futile and unwarranted condemnation, is the devils work.
We've Baal to take on and oh how we must see a cloud as small as a man’s hand is coming up from the sea.
Re speaking out: Make a film, type a comment, can't we all do - something? Otherwise we're spectators and - with respect - this isn’t proper awake.
Anyone would like to do this? I’d encourage and would directly support, regardless of ‘secondary’ differences.
