Restoration - I'll Be Back "Four Days Late"
Acts 3:19-21 Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.
Meanwhile here today on this earth as we draw yet closer, climate change, smog, acid rain and ozone layer dilution are only a few of a fair number of faults that are all today, naturally causing worrying wounds unto the most desirable, high grade architectural constructions and structures. A fracture that does so simply build with time, and lead onto the appearance of architectural disaster through damage so clear to detect through slim observation.
Scenes of arcitecture within most city centres, that today is close to bringing in such disappointment and despondency that lead onto; discouragement. All such scenes being created by forms of air pollution that, not only pose a serious threat unto the environment, but our health also.
In the UK, air pollution has been responsible for thousands of deaths every year, with multitudes more requiring hospital treatment. Direct causes of death include asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and other respiratory diseases, but there are a host of other health problems linked to air pollution such as allergies, headaches, ear and nose infections, and immune depressive disorders.
The main air pollutants being; carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, ozone, nitrogen oxide, sulphur dioxide, benzene, lead, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter. Many of these demons on escape into the atmosphere through the burning of carbon-based materials such as wood and fossil fuels; coal, oil and natural gas. Yet they also collect via a vast range of industrial and chemical processes from industries such as manufacturing and construction, paper production, dry cleaning, printing, waste incineration, military operations, and agriculture. Not to forget also that motorised vehicle emissions are certainly today, a major source of air pollution.
Through my major interests from the beginning involving forms of art and design, architecture no doubt, is certainly brought in way up the path of the sword of the Spirit, or otherwise spine. And there again, from which end of the spine is it we begin? Which particular spine, for it is over here in Great Britain where the M1 motorway, we all know has represented the spine of the body of Britain between London and Leeds. South to north, or is it north to south? Is it the lower section of the human spine that is of a greater importance? In the human vertebral column there are normally thirty-three vertebrae; the upper twenty-four are articulating and separated from each other by intervertebral discs, whilst the lower nine are fused in adults, five in the sacrum and four in the coccyx or tailbone. 'Nine' being the figure we are looking for I suppose; perhaps for another occasion or otherwise, refer through aid of the God Channel to; Amazing Last Day Secrets Revealed In Moses' Tabernacle.
Meantime, what is all of this information in aid of? M1 Exit 24 and 33? Well, it had been recently through eagarness to proceed on with my spring clean throughout the home, together with celebration of the passover on approach, one particular place of interest inparticular for yet purchase a further item, had been; 'The White Company.' One item my nose, without doubt had placed me onto the path of so to purchase from among so many candles and fragrances being; The Pomegranate Collection. Pomegranate described by the words; Like the power of new romance, effortlessly transform the mood with our luxuriously rich and wonderfully warming notes of aromatic pomegranate and bright mandarin, which are laced with soothing patchouli and amber accords. Fruity, uplifting and timeless. The perfect blend for adding a welcoming touch to your living room, hallway and beyond: Sounds interesting.
The aroma by aid of a diffuser to softly scent the room throughout the day and night whilst in tune at home, most likely unto the Lord would be the plan. Yet the local Nottingham store M1 Exit 24, was completely sold out of this particular item through it without doubt; being the favorite among so many. I remained calm on my feet whilst being informed of the closest neighbouring store being, M1 Exit 33 Sheffield. Was I to accend so as to enable myself to decend back, with a new Jerusalem? Whilst I studied further through use of my home computer technology, I received a short message asking for my advice. Advice unto The White Company London, and for their next step forward within this world as it is today? My phrase of words, or maybe proverb stepping forward into the mind with no fight at all being; 'As yet more black creeps in; bring out into the open 'more White' retailers.'
For some reason that particular aroma, as it was for so many other folk focussing on such a purchase, being the one that the mind through aid of the nozzle was able to confront with no challenge at all. Meanwhile, a stench of almost any creature either slaughted or otherwise strangled so as to prepare for a meal; NO! Both the aroma or taste of almost any prepared meal consisting of almost any meat, my system could not, and still today cannot accept. I'll be back.
So therefore, through three being the number; was I to purchase either three of the Pomegranate Signiture Candles, or otherwise one luxuriously rich and wonderfully warming Pomegranate Large Candle with three wicks. Either would have to it that high quality mineral wax to achieve a long, clean and even burn. Well through what there was available from my local store, I settled for three Signiture Candles partly through them being able to burn for a reasonably longer period. Each of the three seperate wicks over the Easter period this year, certainly did progress on with a long and clean burn, although I do hasten to add, that there did come the occasions of a sudden breakthrough by appearance of the flickering flame. Signs as if to represent the presence of a rushing mighty wind from; A to B. All such scenes coming to pass whilst I myself, remained totally relaxed through aid of no physical disturbance at all. For meditation together with that necessary melody, certainly does bring through, that necessary recipe for relief. 1 Peter 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
As I progressed on with discussion unto my Saviour via aid of the Holy Spirit, before me being highlighted, was the reading from the gospel of The apostles who had now seen Christ risen from death. Jesus had given them a mission to announce this event unto all nations, but they have been ordered to stay in Jerusalem waiting for something which will give them the necessary strength to do it. they gathered around him and asked him, Acts 1:6-7 “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them whilst beating his nose: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority."
Their day however did begin in prayer - one hundred and twenty disciples of Jesus were gathering together with the Twelve apostles, for prayer at nine in the morning on the day of Pentecost. Jesus, already ascended into heaven, bends down from the right hand of God and blows His Spirit-breath across the glowing embers of His band of disciples, which stirs up a flame that has been burning ever since.
The disciples correct response through realisation of attainment being to; repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. He had promised that they would receive; the gift of the Holy Spirit. For you know, once you've got, you've got it. You've got it through much more than just a shiver down the spine. Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. That is as I myself proceed on in ways of further progress restoring yet further antique carpentry, within the home workshop. The area of the home built to be a kitchen, bringing in with it a tasteful inviting aroma of freshly refined and restored seasoned wood. Well, it takes the effort and determination whilst dressing the meterial with the correct content by message and being dressed suitably, but having the faith that you shall get there. Why? Because God had it all planned by his methods from the beginning, before we were even born; Just like that!
Now that brings a name back to mind! Do you know what it is like once you have the presence of the Holy Spirit within you? You are without doubt, on fire for the Lord. Tell you what, refer to a Nathan Morris sermon, and watch that sweat escape whilst he is on fire for the Lord. Takes me back to my restoration days within the NHS, they had made a bad mistake through fear as the day of Christs return, draws yet closer. How about 'Day 1 God TV. Summer Celebration.'
'The bible says that His word is a sword, and when you get a bible in your hand, the devil trembles. There is something about the rustling of those pages. The enemy begins to tremble. Oh no, there is about to be a break through. There is about to be a miracle. Have faith unto the Lord, for there is none like Jesus. For where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom, there is Liberty.'
Does Nathan Morris shout too much, I don't think so. He carries on informing all; 'you think we're reserved? When we get filled with the Holy Ghost; yes when we get filled with the Holy Ghost, it's like Jeremiah said; it's like a fire.' A fire that has to it, that correct formula so to cross the line within the given time. Success as God had intended, through aid of the Holy Spirit now available unto all those who have the faith to believe and therefore; receive.
