My goal is NOT to satisfy you.

snifferI am not concerned with spreading my knowledge as much as spreading the fragrance of the knowledge. For I have found that others reek of the aroma of Christ, and have wet my appetite for that same source of the fragrance ... the knowledge. And having been hungry, I ate and was satisfied.

2 Corinthians 2
14But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. 15For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.

You cannot eat a fragrance, and so I don't expect you to be satisfied with my sharing of knowledge ... I share it anyway, not so that you will be satisfied with it, but that you will be motivated to get some of your own.

Having said that, please share with me all that you know. I just want you to wet my appetite for what has already been revealed to you.

Comment from: Mrs Zeke [Visitor] ·
I don't know if this applies brother, but what is always in my mind is

Matthew 10 29-31
29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny[d]? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

No matter what even if the water runs uphill God is still God and He still knows about a single hair. How then could I turn from Him?

How then could I cause discourse among His beloved?
How then could I not give water to one who ask?

I am rarely "right" but I don't have to be I just have to let God be because He is.

As you brush your hair or walk in a wind Trent and all those who might wonder, every single hair that falls is known and it is beyond our understanding for even those we love the most we have no idea of the hairs that fall. God is that vast and that deep we are blessed to serve Him.
I wonder if part of His fragrance is caring enough to know about all those hairs.

Be loved you are

Comment from: Timothy [Member] ·

Thus has the Lord spoken:

"The wrath of the Lamb is coming! Did you think I would stay silent during the time appointed?...I shall shake the heavens and the earth, and stir up the seas. People of this earth, stop breaking My commandments, and blaspheming My name and the name I have given My Son. You shall not have His name associated with sin. His name shall only be for a song on your lips and a sweet-smelling savor."

Thus has the Savior spoken:

"Blessed are they, who bless the name of the Lord;
and happy are those, who have His name perpetually on their lips
life without end to all those, who call on the name of the Lord,
forever striving to walk in His ways and keep His commandments,
fully partaking of the fruit of the Spirit.

My Kingdom is coming...all My sparrows shall fly to Me."

I serve , the Lord.

Hint: the version of the name is the English version, not the Hebrew way to say His name. All letters are uppercase. Rhymes with "freeze us."
