As oil in lamp keeps the flames burning, similarly the embodiment of pearls of wisdom through which our soul is purged always keeps fire in our belly. Strong convictions and beliefs always ignite the elements through which our soul is constituted.
At my church, we have trainings for members who want to serve in different ministries. They call it, Discipleshift (not mis-spelled) Training. Throughout the day we have small break out sessions, activities and exercises to better assist us with complicated issues that we as Christians and the church face. This training also goes deep and we learn a lot about our own personal relationship with our family, friends, co-workers, God and ourselves. One of the exercises that brought me to tears and a deep pain I had been harboring since childhood was the parable of The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-31). Here is my abridged version:
We all as human beings need understanding of who we are, why we were created, why Satan is the God of this world, why deception, and why Yehovah's wrath is coming that will take billions of lives with Christians included -- until the second resurrection.
This writing is about the love all Christians are to have for others; and not just words, but good deed our YHVH sees and shall reward for; however those who help not others when its possible, shall receive the same measure when hungry and in world chaos. Read about the millennial resurrections and judgment in the links supplied.
It's easy to look at the performers of today, especially in the music industry, and point out all of the ways they act immoral and how their lyrics are often deplorable. This article takes a different approach. I try and find lyrics showing that these artists are searching for something, or should I say Someone. Hopefully in their quest for "the truth" they will find THE Truth.
