As I prepare my spirit to encounter the heavens, I’m listening to Psalm 46 (Lord of Hosts) by Shane and Shane…
Bobbing my head just slightly ‘up’ and ‘down’ to the beat of the sound and rhythm of the music, it’s powerful and meditative. NOW GET READY, because I’m about to lead us to the Lord of Hosts, oh yah, let’s go.
…DON’T FORGET YOUR CUP OF JOE!
I’ve opened the Word of God—my Charles Ryrie Study Bible and present to you, scripture from 2nd Peter:
“Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;”
Peter was a fisherman called by Jesus to follow him… will you?

I want to emphasize //
to those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours//because the crucifixion of Peter is imminent and YET THE MAN WRITES this letter for us, those who’ve received…
I mean, can you imagine awaiting a death penalty of crucifixion for your proclamation that JESUS CHRIST is indeed the SON OF GOD!
It’s a polytheistic mystery of a monotheistic God type of statement.
Because human flesh cannot embody God, or so the devil may have thought, but guess what you fellow sinners transformed by the calling of God???
God embodied the man, Jesus, our Lord!
I hope you’re SITTIN DOWN or in a place to BE STILL because this, this here, is where you LEARN THE LANGUAGE of God… …and if you’re not???
Then you must not have music playing in the background as you read this, COME ON, experience the fire in your soul and BE MOVED!
When Jesus said:
Did you think He didn’t mean you as well???
Let me tell you what a fisher of men means to me. It means I become the fish you catch to eat because your souls need the spiritual sustenance of what only the Holy Spirit can provide! DON’T YOU GET THAT!!!!
That is what these apostles and all disciples DO for the sake of God’s desire:
COME ON — BE MOOVED!
Experience the desire of God for your soul to be saved by the truth of His only Son, Jesus, our Lord and Savior of the WORLD! Experience the evidence of DESIRE that is pure, unadulterated, and perfectly HOLY!
Death is imminent, and you, READER, possess a soul made of the breath of God that lives with a choice… …HERE… and …NOW…
Let this post be an instrument to sever the umbilical cord of death by sin to life in Christ!
There are false teachers out there that would have you to continue in the sin you live in, chasing after the time and attention of the world, but NOT THIS GUY!
I would have you chase after God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength; then, after your neighbor as I chase after you! Let this post be your fish, for you to become a fish that feeds MANY!
