    The Way Is Open


    The way is open.

    He who defeated death and walked out of the grave blew the door of death off its hinges.

    He lives, will never die again, and keeps the way open.

    The way is OPEN.

    His arms are open wide to YOU.

    Come as you are.

    Step over the old bones of your past.

    Take His hand and blast through the lies of unworthiness, shame and fear;

    Through the blinding mist of lies spoken over you, sins committed against you—even the darkness of habits, addictions and lies you hide behind to shut out the light of His love.

    The way is shut. It was made by those who are Dead, and the Dead keep it, until the time comes. The way is shut.’ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

    Come as you are.

    No excuses. No false pride.

    No ologies or isms to debate His existence.

    No blame or pointing of the finger.

    It’s just you and Him--standing before you, the enemies of your peace lying at His feet.

    Your job is to take His hand and never let go.

    To hear His voice when the shrieks of death scream louder.

    To lean deeper into His arms of love when past wounds claw at your soul.

    To trust His love will never fail even when you do.

    Take the hand of the only Champion Whose presence can seep into the deepest crevices of your broken soul, to create blinding beauty from ashes, strength from weakness, hope from despair, joy from sorrow, and life from death.

    The way is Open.

    He fought through hell and back again to get to you.

    His hand is open.

    Leap into His arms and find life.

    Yes, the way is narrow,

    But it’s OPEN.

    Come to me all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest.

    As the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    I have come that they might have life, and that more abundantly.

    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled.

    Web or Net?

    The Internet. The World Wide Web. Digital Streaming.

    Our modern world is a flood of information, into every household with a power source, into every hand with a mobile phone, and most of that flood is divisive, fear-filled, degrading, addictive filth that appeals to the very basest of human inclinations and appetites.

    Web: a network of fine threads constructed by a spider from fluid secreted by its spinnerets, used to catch its prey.

    We can sit back and bemoan this fact OR turn that stream into opportunity.

    A web indicates ensnaring, a capturing of a victim much like a spider catching insects born on the breeze; spinning an almost unseen but strong, sticky death-trap. The more the victim struggles, the stronger the grip.

    Yes, the World Wide Web is pervasive, beguiling, confusing, and, often, downright evil. But what if we turned this scenario on its head? Arm-in-arm, we, the Body of Christ with connections to virtually every race, religion, business enterprise, intellectual philosophy, and socio-economic strata, have an opportunity to build a NET—fishing the desperate out of the flow of fear-mongering, debilitating, addictive bottom-feeders intent, through greed, to suck the soul from this generation.Image from http://www.greenpeace.org

    Net: an open-meshed fabric twisted, knotted, or woven together at regular intervals.

    Here’s the thing, though. As long as we’re caught in our own little traps of us-versus-them or even my-ministry/business-versus-your ministry/business, we’re just one more voice of greed in all the noise.

    Let’s change our thinking, Body of Christ. As Gungor sings on their new album One Wild Life: Soul with the timely tune, Us For Them, “We are better together.” (BTW, the whole album is amazing—a spiritual, musical, gut-wrenchingly honest feast www.gungormusic.com)

    The plan?

    Seek God’s Face. Daily get alone with Your Heavenly Daddy. Bring a humble heart before Him. Place Him as the primary goal and focus of all you do every day so you are more and more conformed to and transformed by His boundless, fathomless, unwavering, relentless love. Only through vital connection with Him will we have His love flowing through us, the cords to catch those caught up in the world’s cesspool.

    Scour the Internet for TRUTH, voices proclaiming beauty and freedom and self-sacrifice and LOVE and SALVATION and TRANSFORMATION through Christ’s indwelling Holy Spirit.

    Share these messages, videos, stories, songs, inspirational memes, etc. with those entwined in your life, those God has placed all around you.

    Speak Out! You too have a voice, unique and fashioned like a key to fit the aching void of those who are desperate and lost all around you.

    Together, Body of Christ, arm-in-arm, we can build an INTER-NET of love, forgiveness, faith, truth, hope and joy, to stretch across the www flood of destruction.

    Stand together.

    Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you… 2 Thes. 3:1

    Three Books, One Plan

    This morning, God gave a very sweet gift of insight that left me blubbering.

    For the past ten years of praying and writing, I’ve gone with God’s leading. I’ve laughed off the fact I’m an author genre-jumper, thus a publisher’s nightmare. This morning God gave a little glimpse of the blueprint He's had in mind the whole time—

    My friends, I don't know what else to do but try to type even though my hands shake so hard I can hardly do it and I can't stop bawling. In prayer this morning God hit me so hard with the following. Honestly don't know what to do with it besides weep a ton.
