Judge not lest you be judged

Jesus reveals the Father.  Jesus shows us the nature and character of God.  Jesus is God and is the way to God.  Jesus is the truth about God.  Jesus is the life of God expressed in the perfect human form.  Jesus is the Love of God expressed in perfect harmony with the triune nature of…

Progressive Revelation

In the last post I celebrated 2 years of Alancetotheheart.  It has been a fun ride of progressive revelation.  I have found some themes and concepts have persisted over the two years but the backdrop of theology has obviously changed.  I like to find those threads and see how they have morphed as my mind has…

Mess Makers – Holy Distortions

When we have a wrong, broken, distorted, fallen, deceived, derived or “balanced” image of God we will absolutely find ourselves in the middle of a giant mess.  The messes in our lives are products of our fallen perception of self and God.  Jesus is the answer.  He not only annihilated the Sin nature on the…

Paul’s ecstatic revelation

2 Cor 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. (ESV) How do you feel when you read that verse?  I want to challenge your thinking a bit.  You should…

Stop looking in the shadows

In Light and Darkness I tried to show that what we lack as a fallen human race is revelation.  We all know good from evil.  We all ate from the tree.  Our consumption of poisoned fruit gave us a broken judger.  This broken judgment mechanism is the “original sin” we pass down.  We pass from one…

At the speed of light!

We have been on this short journey of the “I am” statements that Jesus made.  We talked about “I am the bread” in “The Great I Am” and we talked about “I am the door” in “Mystic Portal.”  How about we take a look at “I am the light?” First let me say that this…

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…

What is Jesus Evangelism?

What does Jesus evangelism look like?  The corporate “formula” for Jesus was to preach about the Kingdom of Heaven (liberation from the Kingdom of the devil, death, law and sin). What was the “formula” for Jesus to the individual?  Want to take a look?  Please read with caution it may stretch your understanding. In most western…

Christus Victor

I think most people are familiar with deja vous.  You walk into a room and are doing something that you feel like you have done before or seen before, etc.  I believe the Holy Spirit often speaks to us in a similar way.  You just know that you know something.  Sometimes it is a “word of…
