My 2:00 am wake up

So I woke up around 2am, I
got up went to the kitchen and had a, drink. I came back to bed.  I often put worship music or play the Bible audio (streaming) while I sleep. As I was crawling back into bed I picked up my phone to change the track. I noticed a blinking blue light reminding me I missed something and my phone wants to remind me to look. I looked at the status  bar and opened Facebook.  I saw a post by Francois du Toit and read it. My spirit was provoked by it. About seven hours I was with a small group discussing the resurrection in light of Romans, Ephesians, and 2 Corinthians. God you can wake me up like this as much as you want.

Francois quote is below.

“A meaningful relationship with the Creator and our fellow humans of tangible content and feedback was substituted for an airy-fairy philosophy of religious ritual, sentiment and dreams. Trapped in a spiritual vacuum of ignorance, we’ve latched on to worn-out and fading traditions of the past and vague future hopes.”

Francois du Toit

Once the veil of religion (law) is lifted and the epiphany of the realization what happened at the cross truly or even partially gets through a mans mind and springs forth into his spirit the freedom it brings is wow

Ephesians 2:13 TMT “But now wow! Everything has changed; vhou have discovered yourselves to be located in Christ.  What once seemed so distant is now so near; his blood reveals your redeemed innocence and authentic genesis. ”

The WOW factor,  the cross a the impact of mans co-death and co-resurrection. We are one with Christ at that time,  pre-coneption.

Francois will be coming to Kansas City the end of May beginning of June,  I look forward to it expectantly.

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.
