Hello Friends. I listened to a message I downloaded yesterday by Art Katz called, Prophetic Reality vs Fantasy. It has a profound truth packed into it concerning total abandonment to God. He addresses it from the standpoint of a judaic mindset because that is his thrust, but when he mentioned Israel, I thought of the church. I think this truth is one that everyone needs to chew on and swallow. :-D . Love, Dian.
Mmmmmm...yep, this one's tasty (even if it is a bit grisly;-)). Truth is not about 'facts' but 'reality'. Facts can include fantasy, but truth can't.
[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=2788] Prophetic Reality versus Fantasy[/url][b]Description[/b]: How do we distinguish between the false and the true prophet as both use Scripture to validate their position? The fate of Israel was at stake in Jeremiahs timeand so also today. Art shows that the false prophets were themselves deceived about their knowledge of God. Then, as now, nothing has changed.Thanks Dian, refreshing to hear that these messages are being listened to, this being one that cuts through a lot of the nonsense.
Thanks Dian. This is a worthwhile word from a humble prophetic voice.His eagerness to be alive only to the utmost reality of God, and dead to even the most "christian" of personal agendas, resonates with Jeremiah 23:28 and Heb 4:12."The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he who has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the straw to the wheat?... For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."MC
