Much has happened since I last wrote on this little blog. Perhaps I will share more about those things soon. But until then I want to make a recommendation.

I believe the issues in our faith and in our churches and in life in general stems from our lack of vision of Christ. That we only see parts of Him, and maybe in the wrong light. I also believe that the solution to our problems really is beholding the entire Christ. Brother Milt Rodriguez writes about seeing Jesus Christ in all his fullness in this blog post, which I enjoyed very much. I recommend that you read it as well, and seek to lay hold of a three-dimensional view of Him.

Part 1 – The Heavenly Vision

This article is inspired by the upcoming ebook with the same title… look for it soon!

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints…”  (Eph 1:18) 

“So, King Agrippa, I did not prove disobedient to the heavenly vision,”  (Act 26:19) 

Have you noticed lately how popular movies in 3-D have become?  You would have to be living in a cave to have missed it.  It seems that almost every action movie now comes in two formats: 2-D and 3-D.  The 3-D movies are more expensive to watch and you have to wear those funky 3-D glasses.  I don’t like those glasses because they usually hurt my eyes and give me a headache! …

New Blog Design

For you who have been here before and are wondering what happened to the blog: yes, the blog has gotten itself a new design. Became a bit tired of the old design for the simple reason that you could not have a column to the right or left of the main column. Really liked the colors and typograhy of the old (Chunk was the one I used before), but realized that I could not come to terms with losing columns.

I hope you like it!

Please feel free to tell me what you think?

Starting over

Starting over.

This blog stopped for various reasons. Mostly because I never really got into the whole blogging thing. Also because real life demanded most of my time (and I made the right priorities). This little post won’t be long and is more of a symbol of a fresh start for me, in terms of blogging.

What I do like to share is a quote I stopped to think a little on today:

“The system of fathers of the world church, the clergy system of the state church, and the pastoral system of the independent churches are all the same in nature. They are all Nicolaitans. In the Bible there are only brothers. There is the gift of a pastor, but no system of pastors. The pastoral system is man’s tradition. If the children of God are not willing to return to the position of that in the beginning, no matter what they do, it will not be right.” – Watchman Nee

This was my comment to it as I posted the quote to my Facebook wall:

“True. Every believer is a member of the body, and is set to function, not just a select few.”

As the title of this blog post states I think we ought to start over at zero, when it comes to what we think we can bring before God and how we view our own strength.

Hopefully this little post marks the beginning of a living blog.

Love in Christ,
Daniel
