In Isaia, Ezechia vorbeste despre necazul sau si il descrie ca un leu care se arunca asupra ca sa il zdrobeasca.
Extraordinar este raspunsul lui Ezechia: „ciripeam ca o randunica, croncaneam ca un cocor, si gemeam ca o porumbita…privind cu ochii topiti spre cer…” Isaia 38:14

Cand in jungla lumii vrei sa razbesti, oamenii iti spun sa fii un leu, sa calci pe cadavre daca nu vrei sa fii unul dintre ele.

Dumnezeu are alta parere: sa ciripesti ca o randunica adica sa ramai statornic in rugaciune. Randunica strabate 10.000 de km pana sa ajunga in locul de izbavire cand da inghetul…! E mica dar nu se lasa…!

Cocorul cand striga, e ca o trambita. Glasul i se aude la peste 2 km distanta. Inalta glasul ca un cocor si fa din inima ta o trambita care striga catre Dumnezeu. Cocorii zboara in forma de „v”, pentru ca ei stiu cui apartin si ca puterea e in unitatea zborului…! Ei isi aleg perechea pe viata! Fa pereche cu Dumnezeu…!

Porumbita geme fara sa faca din durerea ei un spectacol ieftin. Ea se adaposteste in crapaturile stancilor, in locuri greu accesibile oamenilor dar aproape din Dumnezeu. Spune durerea ta lui Dumnezeu…!

Cand vine necazul ca un leu, uneori e bine sa fii randunica, cocor si porumbita…!

David Platt – How do we give them a glimpse of His glory?

David Platt itickets.comA word saturated ministry- How do we give them a glimpse of His glory. We give them a glimpse of His glory through His word. Not your jokes, not your counsel or advice, not even your stories. You give them a glimpse of the glory of God by giving them the word of God. This word reveals the glory of God. It opens our eyes to the glory of God. Psalm 119- we see His glory in His word, so give them heavy word from cover to cover, in this book (Bible). God is showing His passion for His glory in all nations , supremely manifested in Christ and the Gospel. So saturate people with this word. It’s the only thing that will drive them into mission. At least it will sustain them. Think about it. What is going to drive the people to lay down their lives amongst difficult peoples in the world,  who want to kill them? Because you said it would be a good idea?

The only thing that will drive them there is because God said: Go! I remember one particular time, sitting down with a wealthy doctor in our faith family, who sat down with me, and we walked through tough texts. And he sat down with me, and he said, „David, I just needed to set up an appointment with you to let you know that I think you are crazy, for some of the things that you are trying to lead us to do.” I was like, „Yes sir”. And he looks at me, and tears begin to flow down his face, and he says, „But, you’re only saying what God is saying….. so, I guess we need to do these things.” And he begins to talk how his whole lifestyle’s turning upside down, he’s selling possessions and considering going to unreached peoples, and he said, „Sometimes I think I’m crazy too. But, you’ve taught us to stand on the word, and I’m just gonna believe that His word is true.

Yes! It’s the only thing that will drive them and it’s the only thing that will sustain them. When I think about the brothers and sisters in our midst who sold their homes in suburbia and moved in the midst of  low income, very high crime rate in our city to spread the Gospel, whose kids are sleeping at night with gunshots outside their homes; they’re walking through really difficult times. What sustains them at that point is not some story or counsel advice. The only thing that will sustain them in that time is the Word of God. And these brothers and sisters who are going out into difficult places around the world, where they have hardly any believers around them, and they’re struggling and on the front lines of the battle, and the adversary’s coming at them from every side, the only thing that will sustain them is the sword of the Spirit. So, give them heavy word. True biblical theology drives urgent missiology.

If we believe God is great, if we believe man is lost, we believe Christ is necessary- put it together: we are urgently going.

Topic synopsis:

Heaven. Hell. The End of the World. For Christians and non-Christians alike, these topics provoke a variety of emotions and reactions: curiosity, confusion, joy, hope, fear, anticipation, or maybe even anger. Sadly, these critical topics are often embellished, fantasized, diluted, abused, or altogether avoided in our day. So what does the Bible say about these things? Is the Apocalypse upon us? Do we know what heaven will be like? What about hell? Is it literal? Is it eternal? How do we even begin to think about these mind-blowing realities?

During this Secret Church, we will explore God’s Word in search of answers to these questions and more. In the end, we will discover that despite of all the controversy surrounding heaven, hell, and the end of the world, several things are clear: Christ will come back, Satan will be defeated, all men will be judged, and the glory of God will cover the earth like the waters cover the sea. And by the end of the night, hopefully and humbly we will walk away with a cry on our lips and a testimony in our lives that echoes the final cry of the Scriptures: “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!”

C. S. Lewis – The Screwtape Letters (3) Pride

Taken from the C.S. Lewis Study Program ‘The Screwtape Letters’ a six-part video study guide of one of the most popular and profound works of C.S. Lewis. By Dr. Jerry Root – noted C.S. Lewis scholar and faculty member at Wheaton College. CSLewisInstitute

The Screwtape Letters is a satirical Christian apologetic novel written in epistolary style by C. S. Lewis, first published in book form in February 1942. The story takes the form of a series of letters from a senior Demon Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood, a Junior Tempter. The uncle’s mentorship pertains to the nephew’s responsibility for securing the damnation of a British man known only as „the Patient”. The Screwtape Letters comprises thirty-one letters written by a senior demon named Screwtape to his nephew, Wormwood, a younger and less experienced demon, who is charged with lewis holy trinity churchguiding a man toward „Our Father Below” (Devil / Satan) and away from „the Enemy” (God). (Read more, including the plot of the book at Wikipedia)

Here are the six parts Dr. Root covers in 4 separate videos (which I will posts as soon as they each become available):

  1. Background
  2. Doctrine of Hell
  3. Three major themes that run through these letters
  4. Antidote to Screwtape’s wiles and what Lewis might say about how we might protect ourselves against various forms of temptation.

The Screwtape Letters Part 1 – The Background

The Screwtape Letters Part 2 – C. S. Lewis’s Concept of Hell

Part 3 – The Screwtape Letters and Pride

One of the most dominant themes of the Screwtape Letters is Screwtape trying to woo his patient, through Wormwood, into this swollen sense of self into pride.

Dr. Root unpackages the 3 recurring themes that occur throughout the letters:

  1. Pride – a swollen sense of self and a diminished view of God. Pride, basically is man trying to play God of his own life. Every definition of sin in the Bible – gluttony, anger, greed, envy, sloth, lust-  has this (pride) as the definite concept embedded in what it means to sin. (Romans 3:23) God knows we have a diminished experience if we are estranged from him. He seeks to woo us back. Screwtape wants us to be as estranged as possible forever, if he would have his way. PRIDE is the complete anti-God state of mind. It is the essential vice leading to every other vice. Lewis concludes his chapter on pride with these words: If anyone would like to acquire humility, I can tell them the first step. The first step is to realize that one is proud. Screwtape seems to take good things and corrupt them with pride- even humility, even prayer, even the church. 
  2. The Rationalization of Evil (coming up in lecture 4)
  3. Temptations of the Flesh (coming up in lecture 5)

Lewis says all evil is a perversion of good. You can’t think of a bad banana, without thinking of a good banana that went bad. Evil compares to good like bread mold compares to bread. It feeds on the original thing. But, even man made in the image of the Creator can take bead mold  and make penicillin out of it; something good out of something bad. And so too, God can take the worst of evil events, as He demonstrated at Calvary and make of it divine penicillin, and the ultimate healing medicine  for the worst ailment of all- our sin and our pride. Pride is self centered and self exalting, and as such, estranges us from the real world where God and others can be met. It engages in projection of self and self interest onto the world around us and thereby becomes utilitarian. Pride results in actual attempts to alter reality. 

Each of us is intolerant of pride when we see it in others, of course. But, a false humility is manifested in our blindness to pride in our own lives, every time it raises its ugly head. Pride transforms prayer into idolatry. The subtle act of one creating their own god, can provide ample reasons for being disappointed at that god, and then projecting the disappointment on the christian God. I wonder sometimes if some of the rejection some of the people have, even some of the new atheism, if some of that rejection is a rejection of a god they made in their own image. We would say, in an informal fallacy it’s a straw man argument. In essence, in pride, things matter if, and only if, they matter to me. This sets me in conflict with the rest of the world. And, if it sets me in conflict with the rest of the world, it has to be rationalized.
