    The Lord snatched me up from this world wide-eyed and clueless, brother. I've always loved your penchant for visuals and so I offer that one up for your consideration.

    Yes, wide-eyed and clueless. You've referred to such a thing as a sovereign act of God and while I've never thought of His will and purpose in such a way, I understand where you're coming from. Remember that I wasn't "brought up" in a way familiar to you or @TLHKAJ ... and many on this forum and elsewhere for that matter. The Lord declared it, and so it was.

    "The Lord declares it, and so it is" sums up my experience with Jesus Christ and defines those differences between us. These difference don't divide us by any means but as we've been learning, they can lead to friction between brothers. I wasn't in a position to articulate this to you in a meaningful way because it took what happened to make it possible. So what does this say?

    It was a set-up. To clear the air so folks don't entertain notions foreign to the working of His Spirit in us and through us, I examine the fruit of this set-up and as always, bear witness to the marvelous works of the living God.

    The Lord did indeed speak of the trial some time before it commenced - "the Lord declares it, and so it is" - and I'm exceedingly reluctant to reveal His words though I'm not constrained from sharing the essential truth with you all: just because the Lord declares it and I hear Him, doesn't necessarily mean I understand some of the words which proceed from His mouth. I don't walk in this understanding until they come to pass.

    This is pleasing to the Lord who declared that He is my Teacher, Provider, God, and Friend. I learned that portions of His words are meant to be directly experienced by the listener, and this is how He intends for us to come to an understanding suited to His purpose.

    Wide-eyed and clueless, @Jostler . That's the visual I have for you today. I hope it helps, brother.

    Remember the many-membered Body from the scriptures. There's one who must learn how to be more sensitive and listen for His words, and then there's one who needs to overcome his pernicious reluctance and speak up before "the cup runneth over." When I pushed that blade into your chest I impaled myself, @Jostler . I'm grateful beyond words for your forgiveness because truth be told, you were already praying for me before you posted the first word in this thread. I ought to know better.

    His voice issues forth like thunders from the storm cloud. Like the lightning which crosses the horizon from the east to the west, His voice is heard.
