Bleed As Much As You Cry

We need men of compassion, not merely empathy.

Empathy is good to have, but it becomes a form of vanity when not fulfilled in the substantive work of compassion.

I may feel the weight of every trouble and pain in this world, and be awakened to the horror of sin and the state of God’s people, and presumptuously condemn my brother for seeming in my eyes to be insensitive to it; and if God is merciful, then perhaps that same brother will have compassion upon my wretched soul, and not utterly abandon me for my insufferable blindness, that perhaps I might see my own error. For in the feelings of empathy we may presume to have great discernment; but by the grounded hand of compassion this vanity is shattered, and true discernment is built through the sharpening of iron.

Longsuffering is the mystery of compassion. I may feel all the sorrow of righteous Job, and sense the injustice against me as Job did against the ill counsel of his friends; yet still, it is the compassion of the Almighty which comes to me and says, “Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou ME.” For although his friends condemned him unjustly, Job then reactively argued to justify himself. It was the Lord’s steep rebuke of this sinful attitude which restored Job to offer a sacrifice on behalf of his friends. Those who vindicate themselves cannot practice compassion.

For what good is it to experience the privilege of feeling the burdens of the Lord, only to cast them heavily upon another without pity? The Lord shares His burdens not for us to sanctimoniously pontificate about them that we may be noticed by heaven for our mere sensitivity in spiritual things, as if that itself were the pinnacle of consecration; but rather for us to soberly act upon it before the Lord, in the discretion of the true compassion of a grown man who seeks no recognition even from his brothers.

Anyone who takes this to be a diminishment of the weight and importance of feeling God’s sense of things, is simply immature in this regard. For this is not a diminishment of that vital intercessory role, but rather an exhortation to properly fulfill it. Neither is this a rail against the existence of spiritual empathy’s emotional expression within us, but rather an exhortation that we hold it in a sound presence of mind: acting upon that which is from God, and beating into submission that which arises from the lusts and pride of life.

Godly compassion is the tangible fulfillment of spiritual empathy through sober action on behalf of another’s wellbeing – especially spiritual wellbeing. Therefore it will give mercy where none would have expected, and exhort where few would have desired or thought necessary. It needs make little sense to anyone except those walking in its obedience. It may appear exeedingly soft to the hardhearted and overly stoic to the emotionally incontinent. Yet it is not simply a middle-ground, but is truly an altogether higher expression of God’s love in the willingly wounded hands of Jesus. The compassion of Christ is inextricably tied to His longsuffering with we who pierced Him.

“And Jesus, moved with compassion,
put forth His hand…”

Bleed as much as you cry, or stop crying.

Newness Of Life

The good news of God’s kingdom is that through Christ He is always doing a new work, and in Christ He is making all things new. For that which is old is passed away, and that which is passed away can sustain no man in the ongoing work of God. The Lord walks onward, calling men to “Follow Me,” and gives little time to the hesitant.

Only an abiding movement in He who abides forever, the Word of the Lord, even the Son of God, is able to keep us walking in His newness; “For behold,” He says: “I do a new thing… Behold: I make all things new.”

A race is not finished or won by simply acknowledging that the finish line is already behind us at the starting point, and so we need not run. He who does not run the race to cross the “it is finished” line for himself is disqualified. The Spirit will not empower the pilgrim who desires no progress. The doctrine of our faith reveals itself vain in a life which possesses not the faith itself to manifest the ready obedience of one who loves God and the brethren. Our participation in the Body and Blood of Christ is not merely passive but also active. The same Apostle Paul who used the illustration of a race is also he who wrote, “Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth…” There is a Rest into which we fail to enter apart from striving to enter into it. There is a spiritual maturity, or even true Life itself, that may be left untouched for a lifetime by being content with what is behind. In Paul’s case, those things were mostly religious credentials, and what men tend to perceive as spiritual acumen worthy of praise. No doubt these also became even his accomplishments as an apostle of Christ.

The Greek word Paul uses for “forgetting” means…

Forgetting.

Things which are forgotten are things which have no bearing upon a man’s decisions going forward; and hold not even a peripheral sway over his lightest considerations. He who forgets is free of the things forgotten. He who cannot walk as though former things are forgotten has not fully dealt with the matters of his inner heart before the Lord. Whether they be matters of outright sin or matters of pride in a good spiritual estate; the Lord would have every man walk with humble simplicity in what is newly set before their feet by the light of the Spirit.

The man who continually deals with God in all his inner motives, thoughts, and intentions remains a free vessel, at liberty for honorable use in God’s house. The man who neglects the stewarding of his own heart becomes unable to contain the ever new wine of the vintage of Life, and fades into a life of paralysis and defeat.

The still and quiet whispers of the Spirit of Christ are the invitation into a broader walk in the true calling of each one. Let every heart hear and walk after He who calls them.

Quote – George H. Warnock

“…God is faithful to visit His people from time to time; and we rejoice in that. But this rejoicing must be tempered with an awesome fear of God in our midst, without which the move of God will cease. But somehow we learn to cope without God’s presence and can continue doing the things the Spirit taught us, but now we do it by our own abilities. No longer is the Lord Jesus Himself, the Lord in our midst. We must learn that the manner in which God may have moved is not to become a mould for our gathering and keep trying to fit God’s people into that mould.

– George H. Warnock

Thought – True Sanctity

It is not merely the christian’s outward image of apparent piety that draws others into the orbit of Christ. It is rather the gravity of Christ’s likeness permeating his being, and is thus evident without any need for the artificial projections of sanctimony.

Sanctimony is the great enemy of sanctity.

Sanctity is not a thing seen, but is rather a state of transparency revealing the likeness of Christ beneath the surface of a man who testifies not of himself. Now, this transparency of character is not the publishing of one’s every thought, whether good or evil; it is much rather a forgetting of that very tree of knowledge for a meditation – a meditation in every deed – upon the Giver of Life.

For it is the singleness of mind toward Christ, and not the upkeep of a spiritual image, which truly sanctifies. Let men, and even brethren, see whatever they see; but let us see God, and be content. Let us be satisfied not merely with His good words, but even with His likeness, concerning which all words fall short.


To what then shall I compare the people of this generation, and what are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to one another, who say, ‘We played the flute for you and you did not dance; we sang a lament and you did not weep.’

For John the Baptist has come not eating bread or drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon!’ The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Behold, a man who is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’

And wisdom is vindicated by all her children.

Luke 7:31-35 (LEB)


The Cycle Of Christian Idolatry

God gives Life to men,
who write good books,
which instruct good men,
who teach other men about those books,
which then replace God Himself,
who always finds men,
who have lost God,
who again gives Life to men,
who all need to stop being such idolaters of good men and good books, let alone bad ones.

But the anointing that you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as His anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie – just as it has taught you, abide in Him.
1 John 2:27 (ESV)

Jewish Tales Wag The Israel-Dog

The general category of eschatological (end-times) views known loosely as “premillennial dispensationalism”, which I myself was raised on, is a historically recent invention of the elite cabal’s culture-creating think-tanks and religious proxies, dating back to the late 1800s.

Vital to this scheme was the convenient founding of a modern nation-state called “Israel” by the Royals, the Rothschilds, and other groups who have both financed and profited from both sides of every modern war. This new nation, an ideally-placed central intelligence node under the perfect cover of continually manufactured ethnic victimhood (at the sickening expense of many well-meaning Jews), plays a key role in their narrative; and has nothing to do with what the scriptures actually teach.

None of this has anything to do with what God has revealed in scripture; but the propaganda runs deep, despite its originators spelling out the purpose of their project: which, rather than giving real Jews a homeland, was much rather to make them the great rooted-but-not-anchored irritation to other nations – thus creating an ultimate victim class to leverage the useful idiots via guilt:

The last hundred years or so were the setting of the stage for the rulers to “fulfill” this particular vision of their global takeover; a program which neutralizes all dissent by the appearance of the inevitability of prophecy, when it is truly a complete and utter fabrication. And speaking of culture-creation: it is interesting to note that many of the biggest purveyors of these sensational views have had ties to the same three-letter-agencies and secret societies (what’s really the difference); after whom many more well-meaning teachers have followed unquestioningly in their judaizing of christians. This is not at all surprising, given said agencies’ tendencies to both create and monitor the vast majority of the end-time cults you’ve ever heard of. Broad evanjellycalism has become the ideal modern petri-dish for this old leaven of the Pharisees; so much so that one must question if this wasn’t always the idea.

This prophetic simulation, however, seems to have been running into many issues in recent years, and I expect that it will continue to stutter. I don’t claim to know how far or near we are from the end: I just know that the current iteration of the Synagogue of Satan no longer has any clothes, and that an increasing number of people are tired of taking part in their ritual. The hexagram flag should have given it away to begin with; but until recently, the slow crawl of our trauma-induced mind control fooled even best of us. Through much gaslighting and sophistry, they have manufactured our consent. But now that new generations aren’t buying into these particular lies, the Kabbalists are having to regroup and employ different tactics.

In the interim, however, seeing how previous generations still hold sway in the West’s voting illusion, the old guard will likely attempt staging whatever events they still can under the old “biblical prophecy” scheme; so that many will continue to say that this is “prophecy being fulfilled,” and, “watch Israel,” blah blah blah. There is a lie for very generation. But Zionism is steadily losing favor; and in response, the accusations of “anti-semitism” are flying like never before from the mouths of those who can “never let a good crisis go to waste.”

I believe that before the real and final end, the church will be forced to understand the truth of these matters, and much more. This adulterous preoccupation and mind-slavery to the modern invention of so-called “Israel” and the unbiblical fairytales surrounding it must be exposed if we are to be made ready for the even darker day ahead.

Matthew 24 was fulfilled in 70AD. It might also help people to look into the good scholarship which dates John’s book of the Revelation prior to that time. And while there are indeed recurring cycles to prophecy, I am convinced that this one was just a poor artificial attempt on the part of the usual suspects to once again destroy the Body of Christ. Those who attempt to re-enact what God has long buried in rubble will likewise be left in ruin for their blasphemy.

Wrath came upon the Jewish rejectors of Christ “unto the end”; and now the church is the true Israel of God, in which there is no distinction, nor shall there ever be again.

For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God.
Romans 2:28-29 (NASB)

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.
Galatians 3:28-29 (NASB)

Spurgeon Sermon Excerpt: “Christ Crucified”

But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 1:23-24

Charles H. Spurgeon:

What contempt hath God poured upon the wisdom of this world! How hath he brought it to nought, and made it appear as nothing. He has allowed it to work out its own conclusions, and prove its own folly.

Men boasted that they were wise; they said that they could find out God to perfection; and in order that their folly might be refuted once and forever, God gave them the opportunity of so doing.

He said,

“Worldly wisdom, I will try thee. Thou sayest that thou art mighty, that thine intellect is vast and comprehensive, that thine eye is keen, and thou canst find all secrets; now, behold, I try thee; I give thee one great problem to solve. Here is the universe; stars make its canopy, fields and flowers adorn it, and the floods roll o’er its surface; My Name is written therein; the invisible things of God may be clearly seen in the things which are made.

Philosophy, I give thee this problem – find Me out. Here are My works – find Me out. Discover in the wondrous world which I have made, the way to worship Me acceptably. I give thee space enough to do it – there are data enough. Behold the clouds, the earth, and the stars. I give thee time enough; I will give thee four thousand years, and I will not interfere; but thou shalt do as thou wilt with thine own world. I will give thee men enough; for I will make great minds and vast, whom thou shalt call lords of earth; thou shalt have orators, thou shalt have philosophers.

Find Me out, O reason; find Me out, O wisdom; find Me out, if thou canst; find Me out unto perfection; and if thou canst not, then shut thy mouth forever, and then will I teach thee that the wisdom of God is wiser than the wisdom of man; yea, that the foolishness of God is wiser than men.”
