Nathan’s Public Journal | V

Tuesday, 12/29/2020

As I’ve thought more and more about this public journal and the interweaving of a story that tells The Taste Of Immortality (previous journal posts). I’ve come to realize how difficult it would be to maintain that course, and not only that, but if continued, would actually do a disservice to the concept of WarCof in that fictional nonfiction story. The idea of that story was meant to shift the readers perspective from their flesh of sin to a mind of the Spirit while using my life to bring it about, but it won’t work like that. So I plan on turning that story into a book, but in doing so will require some time and help.

Now that I have a consistency with these I die daily devotionals, am preparing to implement my goals for this new year! One goal being systematic in the T4P YouTube channel that is now named “T4P PODCAST” that will start having at least a video a week.

“The goal for this channel is to build a fortification of Christian Wisdom. Time For Providence means to broadcast the good news of the gospel, and also warn the reality of its message once heard. The good news of the gospel is that salvation is here by the name of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit, and when the soul believes in Jesus by faith, the Spirit cleanses the sinner through a process of justification for sanctification. However, the reality of this process will be a discipline that the soul undergoes for an eternal outcome, and discipline does not ever feel good although necessary for change. Everyone reacts differently to this spiritual process, and that can cause a lot of confusion as to how to respond to this truth of which not all believe. So I hope and pray that you’ll give this channel a listen, and discover the love of an Eternal Father through Jesus Christ who desires a relationship in you.”

Right now all I have is cringe worthy content, but the whole reason there is a field to practice is to develop ones skills for winning the game. I miss playing soccer… anyway.

What bothers me the most about myself at times is the goof that comes out to absolutely obliterate the potential to be taken seriously or keep a good thing going. Not that being a goof doesn’t have its benefits when the timing is right and measured appropriately during the occasion, but I’ve failed many-a-times and reaped an inevitable embarrassment, losing the momentum or worse, evaporating from the present situation to never show my face again.

And so I have a theory that should help me regulate that spontaneous humor lurking to reveal itself by organizing my time differently. That’s another systematic goal going forward into this new year, time management, but my work schedule will be the conflicting factor to this goal and foresee its difficulty. That’s okay, its… at the very least, in my subconscious to work that out.

Now as far as an outcome based goal—write a book. I want to write several books, but if I can write at least one book this next year I’ll be ecstatic at that achievement! About writing books, there is another idea I’m experimenting with for this website, which is adding a couple pages dedicated for fiction/nonfiction based story writing. I’m still working that out in my head, but we’ll see; I’m not convinced about this idea because I already feel in over my head about what I have for this new year as it is.

My take away from 2020… is discovering the value of time and the meaning of my purpose while on this earth; I won’t reveal, yet, what that purpose is, but will say that there is no greater value than the gift of the gospel.

Belief is an axiomatic living system within the innermost part of the human being, and this system functions as an abstract ideological personality that represents the soul. Everyone believes that they are alive because of this system, but not all have faith to fear the God that can destroy this system in hell—Matt 10:28 Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. An axiomatic system is self-evident by the nature of two energies that build a structure of principles to reflect on one truth, we are going to die because of disobedience, the very nature of sin; the two energies are good and evil that we experience as a consequence of knowledge, having eaten the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

So the soul of the human being is compromised by this system because its only capable of disobeying the law of God; when we’re commanded not to do something, that very law of the command produces the nature of our condition, which is to inevitably sin—even if we want to obey the law. Ultimately… because the law of God is Holy, and the soul of man is cursed with sin, the law kills the person for reason of being incapable of obedience to the law. However, although the human being dies, we also give birth to new life over, and over, and over, again, until finally there is an end; which, if the end came, the law would judge our cause useless forever to be forgotten in the pit of hell. But the end hadn’t come yet, and there was a solution to the problem of the law that kills.

God gave us – human beings – His own Son, heir to His throne, for all the law and prophecies to be fulfilled and sin taken away from the world. However, there was still a problem, humankind is cursed with disobedience. God, knowing our curse of disobedience would ultimately murder His Son, Jesus remained obedient to His Father, our God, where we could not… so the curse of the law would be lifted and an offering of eternal life granted for all human beings that believe in Jesus Christ.

Iron sharpens iron

Warnings and Instructions

Proverbs 27; I die daily devotional.

17 Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another. 18 He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, And he who cares for his master will be honored. 19 As in water face reflects face, So the heart of man reflects man.

I think it has nearly been more than a few years since I was a maintenance engineer of a German company by the name of Gaedeke at a 14-story class double AA office building close to Frisco Tx before leaving to help a friend startup a moving company that will hopefully succeed to achieve the million dollar status projection and then go beyond, but I won’t forget the iron tools used to give keys their identity for a possessor. I was the… “keymaster”! Well it felt that way after watching “The Matrix Reloaded” representing the cause of Neo to save Zion! That was my ambition, to save people from corporations that suck the life blood out of capitalism, but I’d missed the mark by a long shot considering I was engineer to help maintain its present course. That’s time past, my trajectory has changed, or … it’s simply dissolving … expanding rather, in the heat as the iron that represents my soul is forged into a sword that belongs to Christ my Lord.

IRON SHARPENS IRON

Hammering keys into their identity wasn’t all I did, but believe it or not, it was what I enjoyed the most as an engineer. It was during that time that I was inspired to organize what I called… “Salvational Engineering”.

I would pick up trash around my neighborhood with a neon orange or green long sleeve shirt that had “Numbers 21:6-9” and “John 3:12-15” painted on them. And now as I write this devotional out, I especially enjoyed punching those keys into their identity because symbolically that is exactly what Christ is doing with those that believe in the testimony of His Name. As we believers come together to converse the kingdom of God on earth until Jesus come, the Word of God sharpens us into the tool of salvation. A key that proclaims the name of Jesus Christ and the gospel.

IT TAKES TIME

But see, the thing is, it takes what feels like an eternity to make a tool perfect for it purpose. “Why is that?” I think to myself. Well, from my experience it’s because I didn’t start out as a tool in the kingdom of God, but was born as tool of sin that is separated from God until… yes until I decided for myself that I would read the gospel without an indoctrinated view, but purely from a heart willing to believe, and as long as I’m separated from God the pain of death is no more than a tool forged to serve its purpose. Jesus holds the keys!

Rev 1:17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. 19 Therefore write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after these things.

We are now alive to a purpose like that of salvational engineers, ever being trained as blacksmiths to sharpen each other into the Word of God by the name of Jesus Christ. Use us Lord, please. In your name, Jesus. Amen.

  • How do you need to be sharpened?
  • Who are you sharpening?
  • Are you willing to believe?
  • Are you a key of separation or reconciliation?

Proverbs 27(NASB)—blueletterbible
1 Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth. 2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips. 3 A stone is heavy and the sand weighty, But the provocation of a fool is heavier than both of them. 4 Wrath is fierce and anger is a flood, But who can stand before jealousy? Better is open rebuke Than love that is concealed. 6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But deceitful are the kisses of an enemy. 7 A sated man loathes honey, But to a famished man any bitter thing is sweet. 8 Like a bird that wanders from her nest, So is a man who wanders from his home. 9 Oil and perfume make the heart glad, So a man’s counsel is sweet to his friend. 10 Do not forsake your own friend or your father’s friend, And do not go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity; Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother far away. 11 Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, That I may reply to him who reproaches me. 12 A prudent man sees evil and hides himself, The naïve proceed and pay the penalty. 13 Take his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger; And for an adulterous woman hold him in pledge. 14 He who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, It will be reckoned a curse to him. 15 A constant dripping on a day of steady rain And a contentious woman are alike; 16 He who would restrain her restrains the wind, And grasps oil with his right hand. 17 Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another. 18 He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, And he who cares for his master will be honored. 19 As in water face reflects face, So the heart of man reflects man. 20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, Nor are the eyes of man ever satisfied. 21 The crucible is for silver and the furnace for gold, And each is tested by the praise accorded him. 22 Though you pound a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain, Yet his foolishness will not depart from him. 23 Know well the condition of your flocks, And pay attention to your herds; 24 For riches are not forever, Nor does a crown endure to all generations. 25 When the grass disappears, the new growth is seen, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in, 26 The lambs will be for your clothing, And the goats will bring the price of a field, 27 And there will be goats’ milk enough for your food, For the food of your household, And sustenance for your maidens.
