3rd September 2017 blog:
[A Worshipper's Life: The musical] The life (Ecclesiastes 12:13) of a worshipper [elect; remnant] (Matthew 22:14; John 6:37, 39, 44, 15:16; Ephesians 1:4) is like a musical (1 Corinthians 3:16-17, 6:19) in the crowd (John 4:21-24). Dressed in a costume of Christ (Romans 13:14; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 4:24; Colossians 3:10) shielded with armor of faith (Romans 13:12-13; Ephesians 6:11-18), as one is set on a stage (Romans 11:29; 1 Corinthians 1:26-27) - with scenes of everyday life [I.e. living room, car, pavement, shop, road, métro, city hall, pub, pool table] - like a city on the hill (Matthew 5:14-16). Performing (Matthew 25:14-30 ; 1 Corinthians 12; 1 Peter 4:10) one's calling (Isaiah 60:1; Romans 8:28; Ephesians 1:11-13) with ordinary, everyday prayers as new lyrics (Psalm 33:3, 96:1-4, 98:1) like fragrant incenses (Psalm 141:2; Revelation 5:8, 8:3-4) before the Lord with music (Psalms 1-150; Habakkuk 3:1) - of reverence, of praises, of thanksgiving, of love, of needs, of afflictions, of despairs, of mercies, of graces, of confessions, of forgiveness, of pains, of joys, of battles, of victories, of supplications, of hopes, of healings, of remembrances - solving life’s most perplexing problems with music (Psalm 49:4), in one's own styles of creatively spoken and unspoken dialogues with God [Father, Son and Spirit] (Romans 8:26-27).

Across the vast theatre hall of heavens and earth (Genesis 1:1), one is surrounded by beautiful voices, songs, music and dance of 144,000 (Revelation 14:3), angelic choirs (Revelation 5:11-12), heavenly hosts (Luke 2:13-14), creatures of the air, fields and seas giving thanks, praises and glories to the Lord (Revelation 7:12). It is as though one is in the midst of a symphony of instruments (1 Chronicles 15:16, 23:5; 2 Chronicles 5:13; Acts 9:15; Romans 6:13). A breathtaking musical experience with God in His Presence (Revelation 14:2). It is a city's view from the hill (Matthew 5:14-16) that is stark different from the one on a very high mountain where Satan tempted Jesus (Matthew 4:8-11) with the kind of the world which belongs to the audience of darkness (Isaiah 9:2; Matthew 4:15-16; Luke 11:35; 2 Corinthians 4:4) now living as Devil's slaves (John 8:34, 44; Acts 13:10; Ephesians 2:2; 2 Timothy 2:26; James 3:14-15; 1 John 3:8, 10, 5:19) and perishing (2 Corinthians 4:3; 2 Thessalonians 2:10; 1 Timothy 6:9), making up of a neighborhood (Matthew 22:39; Romans 13:9-10, 15:2; 1 Corinthians 10:24; Galatians 6:4) of the ignorant, hypocrites, liars, adulterers, LGBTs, robbers, murderers, greed, arrogant, selfish, poor and suffering. The audience is not sitting still but moving around like waves that toss to and fro restlessly in the night, committing sins. Will one's bearing of His illumination (Acts 13:47; 2 Corinthians 4:6-7, 6:14) save them?

As Christ (Revelation 19:5-9, 11-16) - Musical Director, Maestro, Principal Conductor - does His Father's will (John 6:38), motions His double-edged baton (Hebrews 4:12; Revelation 1:16, 19:15) with constant speed and acceleration as His orchestra [workers of the fields] (Matthew 9:37) translates His love, joy, anger into stirring, life-giving music (John 1:1-3; Romans 11:36). "Come and be saved!" (Isaiah 45:22; 1 John 1:9) Hearing (Romans 10:17) with a surrendered heart (Proverbs 3:5-6; Matthew 16:24-27), with the veil stripped off and taken away (2 Corinthians 14-16), once a fallen face (Romans 3:23) now so shine in His glory (Matthew 5:16; Ephesians 5:8). One feels strangely warmed as Holy Spirit descends, comes floating in like a gentle, cooing dove (Luke 3:22; John 1:32), filling the theatre hall with His presence. Pulsating through one's heart of worship with supernatural heartbeats yearning to live a blameless life (Proverbs 20:7; Philippians 2:15) of consistent service (1 Corinthians 15:58; Colossians 3:17, 23-24) made possible with the sought help of Holy Spirit (John 14:26) in one's residence (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20) Who daily circumcises [spiritually] (Colossians 2:11-12) and transforms oneself from within out of the darkness: to soak in, get saturated and immersed oneself in one's musical [calling, purpose of]. A Maker's diamond in the rough waiting to be revealed in His glory, honor and power.

Whatever one's former allocated resources - time, energies, funds - for illicit affairs of worldliness [i.e. Putting a false front and hiding facts from others (Proverbs 6:16-19; Ecclesiastes 12:14; Luke 8:17; Colossians 3:9-10; Hebrews 4:12-13), pursuit of others' expectations, of others' approvals, of pleasures, of wants, of successes, of riches, of advancements] have now been set free by Holy Spirit. As one journeys on a new life in Christ (Galatians 2:20), the new pace of life slows one down to one's comfortable pace. There is no chasing after the wind [i.e. With the help of Holy Spirit, one spiritually cultivated a strong confidence of sufficiency in Him: A sense of being able to live uncomplicated, contented, stress-free, anxiety-free, worry-free and financially burden-free (Colossians 2:20-23) with most basic life essentials - to survive - fully met: Food, water, clothing and shelter. In contrast, the following is optional and requires one to work and pay for it regularly: to live an evolving and advancing man-defined lifestyles with non-essentials: Man-made ecosystems, devices, related services including taxes.] (Ecclesiastes 1:14). This is the key difference between those living in the Light and those [lukewarm Christians (Hosea 12:8; Revelation 3:15-19, 21:8) and the unsaved] living in the audience of darkness, God has shut one's ears - heart, mind and soul - away from the sinful noises of this world [world orders, powers, politics, laws, cultures, false churches, media, web and print, pains - of distrust, of suspicion, of betrayal, of backstabbing, of lying, of murdering, of stealing, of adultery - inflicted by one's foes, yoked and fellowship with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)] that none of it should send worries, anxieties, stresses, terrors and quakes to permanently depress, destroy and shatter one's soul - self-esteem, moral, equilibrium - to pieces. One has slows down one's pace of life, becomes still in His Presence (1 Peter 3:4) as one goes about with light activities of each day and night. For one relies on, trusts in, adheres to one's faith in Him with expectations of such possible outcomes with readiness. "Be still (Exodus 14:14; Psalm 37:7; Romans 12:12; 1 Peter 3:4), and know that I am God [Ancient of Days; Alpha and Omega; the First and the Last] (Isaiah 43:10-11, 44:6, 48:12; Revelation 1:17, 2:8, 21:6, 22:13)," He said (Psalm 46:10).

Living becomes simple, contented, colorful, enjoyable, richer and weighty in meaning. One's new vision, mission and goals in life centered on God. One becomes focused and devoted to glorify, honor, praise, exalt, please and commune with Him. Oh what an excellent investment (Luke 19:12-27) of one's time, energy and resources for eternal rewards (Isaiah 40:10; Jeremiah 17:10; Hebrews 11:6; Revelation 22:12) which will never decayed nor robbed (Matthew 6:20)!

On the dark side, one might not notice, on the stage, in the audience and within the theatre hall, the whole realm is a spiritual military theatre (Ephesians 6:12; Revelation 12:17) with one's location being actively monitored and in the cross hairs as Devil's mobile ground zero (1 Thessalonians 2:18; 1 Peter 5:8). Everyday one may not sense any unseen, yet spiritual battles of evil spirits (Mark 5:9; Luke 11:24-26; Revelation 12:7-9) and angel armies (1 Samuel 17:26; 2 Kings 6:17-20; Job 25:3) - locked in ferocious conflicts with God's Word (Joel 2:11; 2 Corinthians 10:3-4, 11:13-15) - are continuous without ceasing through one's days and nights [eventual cease on the day of Christ's Second Coming]. With perseverance and endurance one waits patiently for God of Banner's (Exodus 15:3, 17:15; Isaiah 11:10) roar (Jeremiah 25:30; Joel 3:16; Amos 1:2, 3:8) that sends one's foes to flight (James 4:7)!

Today is the day (Song of Solomon 2:12; Psalm 118:24; Mark 1:15). A full house. Tickets are sold out. With opening music rolling in, lights dimmed, audience quiet down, figures on stage making their entrance. With God's Word (Psalm 119:105; Isaiah 55:11; 2 Timothy 3:16-17) as one's role script (John 5:30; Ephesians 2:10; 2 Timothy 1:9), one performs elegantly - in thought, in word, in deed (1 Corinthians 10:31; Philippians 4:8; Colossians 3:17; James 4:17) - in one of these life scenes: "Métro Alps, Switzerland: 2017, mid Summer, Day 73 [Scene 1, Acts 14:….]…"

[Musical commences. Doors close.]

Highlight verse:
"But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God." - 1 Peter 3:4, Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

Give your problems to god he is big enough to handle them and we weren't made to be independent. Don't think you can handle all your problems on your own, you can't. Don't take pride thinking you're independent. We are not supposed to be independent, we're supposed to be dependent on god. If you try to handle all of your problems without god it'll only lead to you getting stressed, got is big enough to handle them.

I got to experiment with a couple of possible songs for Acoustic Confessions Vol. 1 (the album after In Flight) at #BackyardWaco last night. The crowd loved it, will you?
