The longest running race in the history of the world?
Have you ever wondered what that race was?
Well it is the race of life that we have managed to continue to run unsuccessfully.
Saint Paul refers to it
He believed he finished it. Did he?
2 Timothy 4:7
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Is it just keeping the faith ?
1 Corinthians 9:24
Striving for a Crown
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.
His message is we must all strive to win and overcome
True but do we need to strive?
so few of us since Christ came, have managed to finish their race.
Church saints have got to a certain point and no further. They ran out of steam.
Why is the race not finished?
This set of verses has not come to pass.
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
What have we done with this authority power and creative ability?
What have we learned about being a son? Yeshua translocated, changed atmospheres on a major scale. Are we?
But our body is redeemed? He has poured out His Spirit on our flesh! What is holding us back?
Lack of knowledge from the right Source?
Where have we failed? What has impeded us and distracted us.
The Lord just said to us:-
‘Technology is a distraction.
It takes your eye off all things spiritual and causes you to forget
That you are far more evolved than the technology you are trying to create’
‘FInd out how to evolve! ‘
From techne -A Greek goddess of Art and craft
Logos logia word knowledge.
More idolatry in the wrong direction.
Tecnon ( same root) is a child and we are supposed to be Huios. (Son) That is why we are not as mature as we should be. Childlike not childish but wise.
We have fallen by the wayside,got discouraged, slowed down, or left the track. We have remained immature in the spirit.
Have you wondered why Yeshua has not returned yet?
Because we are not ready for Him, to greet Him and welcome Him
Luke 13 v35
See! Your house is left to you desolate; and assuredly, I say to you, you shall not see Me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ ”
We need to get our houses in order’
God is the God of order not disorder
Fullness not desolation
