the Meeting


 On Monday my trial turned out as it should have, the charges were withdrawn. That should have been enough to release our story entitled, "Do Not Worry". But then I asked you to be just a little more patient. As I thought it wise to wait for the meeting between me, Mario "the manager" of the Mustard Seed, and Paul Thorne a volunteer coordinator.

   It doesn't look like I will ever be allowed back into the building. The only way they will even consider another meeting with me again is if I answer a question in a manner which is contrary to my beliefs. They want me to verbally state to them that the Mustard Seed is valuable to me, personally.

  While it may be beneficial, it is not valuable. As a christian I hold nothing in this world of value. To me, only my Lord Jesus and the Kingdom of Heaven is valuable. They're request is also contrary to a faith in God. This thing that they ask of me is in direct conflict with...

Philipians 3:
7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ...

   And so now the one stipulation to which will allow me to re-enter this church building, is if I break my vow to God the Father. A vow I made long time ago....
                                                                   This meeting turned out exactly as I knew it would.

   Which is why I was not in a rush to book that appointment with them. I also understand why the breaks were put on this story by the Holy Spirit for so long. It needs a bit more rework... once again.

   It all works to the Glory of God. And it all intertwines together to the subject of what this story of which I speak represents. My heart is saddened for the anguish of our Lord Jesus. To what He has endured for us, and for those who sully His good name, yet are blind to these facts.
