Abraham saw this

This journey we are on is about enlightenment.  We are the divine manifestation of the divine in this temporal reality still one with the eternal reality.  OK, that is very heady, I get it, but often words fall short of what is a truth of the Kingdom.  We are waking up from a dream.  We…

Happy Birthday, 2 Years Old!

This month Alancetotheheart is two years old.  Wow what a journey it has been.  342 posts later I can say much has changed and much has stayed the same.  That sounds pretty cliché I know but let me see if I can explain. When I started writing I felt like the “great defender of God’s…

The Weaver’s Table

There is a poem that was made popular by  Corrie Ten Boom called “Life is but a Weaving” (the Tapestry Poem).  In this poem God is the great weaver of the tapestry of our lives.  I heard a variation on that “theme” by C. Baxter Kruger.  He was relating a story of a Grandfather who…

Hypothesis of Faith

I think most people are familiar with the concept of an experiment.  Think back to your days in chemistry class.  There are the beakers and test tubes neatly arranged on your experiment table.  Maybe you have a bunsen burner fired up, some goggles donned and notebook ready for copious notes (which you never took because…

Who is He really?

So much of what Jesus did for us is related to our identity.  So much of our walk in this life is about His identity.  Maybe it is bigger than that simple observation.  Maybe it transcends observation altogether and it is the core of God’s message.  Maybe everything we think we know (apart from Jesus)…

Believe in the name of Jesus!

Matt 18:6 “And everyone who commits an offense against one of these little ones who believe in me, it were profitable for him that a donkey’s millstone would be hung around his neck and he be sunk in the depths of the sea.” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English) Jesus is the revelation of God.  The…

Your shield and great reward

Gen 15:1 After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: “Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.” (ESV) This has always been God’s promise to us.  Our fallen nature screams for some kind of balance or payment.  Our incessant cry for jurisprudence requires…

The truth will set you free

Help me in my unbelief.  That is what the man cried out when he wanted his son healed.  Here is a bit from that passage: Mark 9:22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23…

Faith Test

I was thinking about why there seems to be all this schizophrenic, bi-polar, old-versus-new reasoning when it comes to understanding the nature of God.  To every born-again child of God, it is clear that Jesus is love and is God’s expression of love.  Jesus came to reveal the true nature of God to us. When we…

Spirit of Cain

1 John 3:12 We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous.   Ouch!  What do we do with that? Remember we need to use our “mind of Christ.”  God is love.…
