Can we be frank?

This blog is going to be mainly to the pastor’s and church’s of the world.

First, dear pastor are you beside your self in everything that you do or think? Why? God is everywhere,everything,everyone. So why do pastor’s of the world don’t include what God is doing,saying or being in the rest of His world? Why do you just think that it is all about the confines of your little building that you meet in? It’s not about the confines of this space in the most prestigious part of the city that you have chosen.

*Let me just say here that majority of people inside the ‘church'(people in the pews) have no clue what God is doing outside the walls of their building. Their is no ‘seeing’ of what the unity of God’s ‘forest’ approach to his kingdom is, as opposed to the ‘tree’ approach by the ‘church’ on the corner.*

God has chose the whole world as his domain. It is His creation, His land, His Kingdom. It is, what it was. and it is, what is now. and it is, forever and ever. Nothing will change. God is.

So why do we do what we do as churches, or pastors to corner our selves into this niche of the world to ‘be’ a ‘church’, when it is God’s Church,His people.

Secondly, God’s Kingdom is ‘of’ Him, through Him, and by Him. Our thinking that is of the individualistic paradigm of this ‘saving’ them at whatever cost by this little church in the corner has got to go. It is nowhere to be seen in the old testament of all the journeys of mankind. In the New Testament, it is even reinforced in the proclamation of Jesus that He came for MAN(plural) to set them free from the slavery of the world, which they chose instead of God the creator.( This is what the Gospel is)

I digress, this attitude of ‘church’ and the pastor has isolated themselves in so many ways that it is to much to get in to at this point, but let me point out one Huge thing that has hampered the development of God’s people becoming God’s people. You see when you isolate apart of a body,let’s say the liver, it won’t survive by itself. It was designed to be apart of the whole body, because the whole body is designed to function with all things of the body. What is really bad for a body is when the part’s believe that they can act individually on their own to be all they can be outside the body. This is a disastrous situation. The body dies. Sound familiar?

When you ‘see’ something not come together, it must mean that it will not be so. When the piece of puzzle doesn’t fit, we must realize that it’s not apart of the puzzle!

When the People of God realize that We are ‘all’ God’s people coming together as ‘ONE’ in the name of the God of Adam, then we will be as He designed us to be, His Own.

Where do we go from here?

Is this a wake up call for us? Should we change? If this effects everyone in the world, should I change? Alot of new and different questions to think about in our life.

The biggest thing that I see and perceive with society, and even christians is that we all have problems with the idea of rest. We don’t know what to do with ourselves when we don’t have work, or we don’t have a schedule of things to do in our normal life. There is no indication that we cannot just rest just for the sake of rest.

Using this as a marker, we need to see why the need exists, why we feel the need to do. It has been ingrained in us for centuries, thru many reasons, sometimes being no fault of ours. There is this need to just be busy, to work, to play, to go and not to be still.

Rest is talked about in the scriptures multiple times, in fact it is mentioned almost 300 times in the NASB. The bulk of the time the ‘rest’ is mentioned in the old testament, which should tell us that emphasize was there with the Israelites from early on in their journey with God. But why? Why would or should we be concerned with the notion of ‘rest’.

Let me digress here for a moment, I have always had a few questions about groups of people or individual’s that didn’t look back at their heritage or their history to see if their were problems that they had created or were not going along with what God had deigned them to do, and why they didn’t see this. This is one of those moments, and questions I have for the Israelite’s.

If God had designed a world for us and the only thing that we were to do, was to rest with God, why would we do anything else?

God’s design for us, or for a better word to use is our ‘vocation’ in this world was to be an ‘image’ of God , which leads us to vision us as image in the God’s world. Ironically, this is exactly the picture we see later with God’s, chosen people, the Jewish people, the Israelite’s in their Temple model, that God set up for them to be ‘near’ him. Just one dot, in the whole world, as opposed to being with his people in all of the world.

And we still can’t see this in our world today!
