Are we already with God in our “minds eye”?
I believe it’s time to come out of the wilderness of the soul and body and enter our new man who is the Son of God, Jesus Christ. I have been sensing for a while is time to let go of the old of being “Kicked out of Church” and focus more on the new and life within.
The blog is now called “Our New Man” and the new address is OurNewMan.life (upper or lower case works). The old address and links will continue to work.
If I have hurt or offended anyone along the way, please accept my apology. I am still learning how to die God’s way.
I hear that both being “kicked out of church” (death) and entering “ournewman.life” are an ongoing process in all of us. They work simultaneously until we fully exit the fleshly body and have been fully “kicked out of the earthly Church” which is natural body itself.Continue reading
Are feelings real?
Do you ever wake up one morning and suddenly everything appears dark and grim?
Situations and “things” that you viewed as very positive just the day before no longer appear that way at all. As a matter of fact, they seem to be a burden rather than a blessing.
You feel like you were somehow blindsided by a Mac truck in the middle of the highway. No, you feel you are STILL BEING RUN OVER by a Mac truck.
And is backing up and moving forward over and over.
You can’t even get a perspective to see what is happening. You just hear the engine rev and see the tires coming again.
If you could only get out from under “it” to see what in the world is going on.
Whatever “it” is.Continue reading
Good afternoon and happy Saturday,
What is the “valley of the shadow of death”?
I have spent most of this entire week in solitude and deep scripture study and spent a couple days in deep darkness. As much as I hate it, the sun ALWAYS rises in my heart after the “night of darkness”.
Are you ready to hear of a God MUCH bigger and more glorious than we have heard before? Hopefully, you are listening with your “new wineskin” from inside your heart. Otherwise, the old wineskin of the outer man may burst when we pour in this most awesome “new wine”. Mine has burst many times.
I was doing errands today and sitting, waiting in my car staring outside. Suddenly the words came to me in a FLASH (based on a conversation yesterday with a friend and Christian teacher…) I am always asking him to reveal more of the truth about “death“ and “life”. That was part of our awesome conversation. Her faith is so awesome to see, but we both agreed it appears out of death. Most (if not all) the people I know who have great faith have experienced great death in their “lives”. She lost her son who was in her 20’s and struggles with the darkness. My mother died at the age of 7 and “family” was very dysfunctional with lots of alcoholism. Another friend lost her young teen son to an accident. Others struggle greatly with addictions or abuse. All of them are seeing “death” first hand. All of them have great faith (full trust in God) as a result. It’s very refreshing to see.Continue reading
