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 towards we who pierced Him.

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

Bleed as much as you cry, or stop crying.

Meekness Defined

Again, the Devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto Him, “All these things will I give Thee, if Thou wilt fall down and worship me.”
Matthew 4:8-9

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Matthew 5:5

Meekness is seen in the divine right of Christ’s power & authority being submitted to the fear & honor of God & His Law.

Sincerely, The Devil

The Devil has become fully convinced of the righteousness and validity of his own cause. The father of lies has become the truest believer in his own lies. In his blindness, satan has become of the utmost sincerity in his deception. Therefore, he can infiltrate the body of Christ both through insincere and sincere men alike – who at times may speak even the purest of words, but in the most manipulative spirit, whether wittingly or unwittingly..

Without the Holy Spirit being always allowed to cut us asunder, revealing the unthought thoughts and unintended intentions of the heart; we are hopelessly outmatched by and easily made a mouthpiece of the subtlety of the serpent.

Those who know the Truth as the Person of Jesus have little regard for sincerity and much regard for being true in Christ. For the two are quite distinct, as much as they ought to be intertwined.

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)


Against The Prometheans

The Light of Jesus Christ pierces through those from within whom the Father has generated it; but the light of Lucifer clouds those by whom it has been secretly embraced.

The former exposes the sin and undoes the corruption of its vessel, calling it evil; but the latter conceals the sin and accelerates the corruption of its vessel, calling it good.

The former is the revelation of that which God both sees and defines; the latter is the awakening of revolt against all righteous judgement.

The straight path of the righteous is lit by the imminent revelation of Jesus Christ to their spirit; but the wicked wander in circles by the tongue of the hellfire of revolution, which consumes their mind.

For the Spirit of God is the principle and moving thing; but the spirit of Satan is revolutionary and reactionary.

Therefore, those whom the Light of Jesus Christ has pierced are moved according to the wind of His Spirit; but those in whom the Luciferian doctrine has been kindled are restless in their conceit.

The keepers of the Promethean Flame have always kindled a Strange Fire – a fire in the minds of men – that they might trade the evil of law for the greater evil of lawlessness; and having done so, become greater slaves to themselves, just like their father the Devil.

The hierarchy of God is seen in the internalizing of His eternal Truth, springing forth as His wheat; but the hierarchy of the Serpent is seen in the externalizing of self-deception, springing forth as the tares.

Their high tower shall always fall, their secret masonry shall always crumble, their dark flame shall always elude triumph; for they have rejected the Strong Tower, the Cornerstone, the Light of the World, for a glory of their own making.

Jesus saith unto them, “Did ye never read in the scriptures, ‘The Stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes’?
…And whosoever shall fall on this Stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.”
Matthew 21:42,44

Thou sawest till that a Stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the Stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
Daniel 2:35

What God has torn down, let no man dare to rebuild.

Liberty outside of Christ is only evil unrestrained.

Slavery to Christ is the true liberty.

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)
