i hate confrontation…

its messy…it never turns out like u think it will…and i dont think it serves any good purpose…i mean…u can explain till ur lips fall off how someone broke ur heart…or wat u think u need from a spouse or a friend…u can be very clear abt what u thought it was and wat it really was but nothin really changes except u put ppl on notice and they can either work outta their flesh somethin that looks different but really isnt or u just strain or snap whats (obviously) already weak…

flesh cant change…it can be perfumed, dressed up and look different but th heart remains as it was…and its th heart thats th problem …its th heart thats gotta change…

to me confrontation btwn ppl is completely fleshly…its prompted by flesh and its aimed at flesh…and while u can dress it up in big words or formal debates or shout it out all fisted up behind closed doors …. its probly not gonna get u wat u came for… and settlin is just th prelude to another confrontation…

unless the confrontation is from God…bc when God confronts flesh…He gets a whole different result…

everythin Jesus Christ spoke was a confrontation … in Him is healing… forgiveness…restoration…but not before th confrontation…

adam where are u….

confrontation means to stand in front of or bring 2 parties face to face…such a simple definition…like th calm b4 a storm when nobody knows th storm is comin…

i think of mose witnessin God confront pharaoh…or elijah witnessin God confront th prophets of baal…Jesus Christ confrontin th pharisees…all this was God confrontin adam…

in th day u eat of that tree u will surely die…

God confronted adam b4 th enemy was fully exposed…altho he musta been there…lurking…crouchin at th door…waitin to pounce…

in th day u eat…in that day and no other…

its not th ppl …its th spirit that moves em…

confrontation btwn ppl is like tornadoes ….hot air and cold air meet…2 of th same force… clash n swirl…. like some territorial war without victory or concession…or some weird mating ritual…circling each other like dogs in heat…or undefined dancers so close together movin like one instead of 2 … doublin their destruction…but its all th same air…

like tornadoes….confrontations btwn ppl only destroy and their path of destruction lays waste to watever is near as though its all just collateral damage…and btw…namin it collateral damage dont justify or excuse th destruction…just sayin…

lotta ppl believe weather extremes is God’s judgement…but ppl survive weather…we got ETAs fa storms and alarms n sirens and maybe time to evacuate…and when its over we clean up watever mess it caused…rebuild… refinance…business as usual…they call it human resilience…but i see th spirit of this world unrestrained… breakin all bonds…unable to even be slowed down while those it controls wail and groan under its oppression…

God’s judgement cant be scrutinized predicted and managed like weather…theres no time to evacuate and tho it seems slow in comin it will surely come…

a better illustration of God’s judgement is some shard of pottery or piece of a weapon preserved under layers of volcanic ash…preserved as a witness from
some civilization that once lived out its days then suddenly was no more….no mere human enemy erased em…th whole of their society obliterated in a single moment when some unmanageable volcanoe erupted…whatever safeguards they had…whatever weaponry or escape routes…whatever they boasted in or threatened with…all thats left is some broken piece of a witness…a reminder that someone b4 us had as much pride as we do…had days and celebrations and mourned….they too like all of us ate and drank and were married and given in marriage…until that suddenly overtook em and their enemies too…and now they are no more…

no sirens or ETAs…no time to evacuate…a whole civilization gone…a much clearer understanding of th wrath and judgement of God…but even volcanoes are a mere illustration and not th actual … a picture that only comes close but isnt exact….

fa me…violent weather is a real illustration of th ragin heart of adam… flexin his muscle over someone else…diggin his heels into someones neck….plantin his flags and his seed without regard….blindly treading across wat dont belong to him now and never did…a ravening wolf …insatiable hunger and rage swirling like air….dancin…twistin in th atmosphere lookin fa a place to land…destroyin evrythin it touches…

until God confronts him…

who told u u are naked…

tornadoes destroy…empty where somethin used to be…broke stuff…everythin outta context…flesh is flesh and whenever we tryna get wat we need outta anyone else its gonna destroy…

but th Lord God confronts with precision…

Jesus told th pharisees they were whitewashed tombs fulla dead mens bones…

there wasnt any cleanup they cld do…watever image they had b4 ppl was exposed as a fraud…they cldnt undo that sentence…bc while they looked upon Him as a man…tested Him like a man…tried to trap Him like a man…He talked like God…and they hated Him fa it…He wasnt like them at all…

Christ came and by His coming everything is different…

there are new creations hid in Christ and He who is our shield and buckler is manifest…

we have no need to turn to one another…does th hand seek assistance from th foot? does the knee demand to be acknoledged by th ear…but He who is th head knows each membrr….hears us and th head moves th body…not we ourself who decide …

no tornadoes in th Kingdom of God…th natural man dont be here…no rage…only th love of God breathed in and out and Christ Himself poured out one to another…

we have no need to demand it frm others …its freely given….freely received…

its how we know we r among th btethren…Christ rules…Christ is poured out…and we who no longer belong to ourselfs are led in peace by th Spirit of God….

no grater love than this that a man lay down his lifd fa a friend….Christ is who laid down His life fa us….and so we see it fulfilled in us…abraham was called th friend of God…abrahzms son livdd bc God Son died…

no greater love than this…
