Been really contemplating the Macro 5-fold so much lately.
I don’t look at what’s wrong. I don’t watch tv read newspapers or do news. I listen to God love the person in front of me and I look at what’s right, but as I look at a world in chaos I think we first have to have a generalized idea of a starting point
1. the church
It’s paranoid fear of inviting real connection outside the barbie club of who’s whos and celebrity status. It’s marketing 101 to get a seat at the table you need to look the part and have gone to the right school to say you indeed are a leader, unless you have all the glitter and glam in the natural , all the cool tools, name drops or positioning that says to the haves…”yes, wow you’re favored by God, sit with us.” It’s viewing of itself mirrored. Translating GOD as the self-proclaimed supreme authority to the world, offering free and moderate priced instruction on how to govern through rules of behavior instead of laws of physics. Thus guaranteeing by cause and effect and the laws of gravity a long term supply of “Look what I did” experiences. Helping others to demonstrate just how ok they are now… until they aren’t.
It’s what happens when you read books that change the definition of what love is. Good loving people think they are loving but in reality they have no intent to actually estabish real relationship which says “I value you” past a smile, a word and a hug at church.
2. The government
It’s conflict of interest with big business, movers and shakers globally. Its fear of and need to squash individualism and the entrepreneur. Fear of those who really can choose. The scary part is the use of fear to manipulate and trigger flight or fight response that overload the body with chemistry, rendering it unable to process logic. They create chaos in exchange for fear and deliver the relief of not having to think or problem solve. First overwhelm and then declare, “We know best you don’t need to think. You’re not capable, we will think for you, it’s ok.”
3. The imbalance in economics that has become parasitic. It really is cannibalism of humanity.
4. The social systems that treat the antecedent which is the mess and then points the finger to the person and says. “NO, you are the mess and here’s our rules of behavior to help you cope with the torment better because there is no real answer. Sorry. I wish I could say more but if you jump through all these hoops we will give you hope only to say sorry but…”
5.The family is so disconnected. Believing that love is a bedroom, a house, a car, a shopping spree. Family time as people on devices not talking till its lights out. Where different means you suck and get it right or go. It’s is more the normal than the exception. Where love has become, what are you going to buy or do for me?
I’d so like to have a conversation if I could only get an invite to the table.
I dont want to talk about what’s wrong.
I want to talk about real solutions that God has taught me. Wish someone had eyes to see and ears to hear and believed a woman with nothing had something so substaial to give the world. That they would invest in me like they do in estabilished ministers and public speakers.
A day will come when I will be invited to speak. When they say, “we saw you, Linda. Tell us what God has put in you.”
I will thank them and then I will go to the most broken person in the church and I will sit in front of them with the mike and I will say, “those who are crushed like grapes are the closest to the Father while being crushed. He is with the broken hearted so you have the most to give us. What is the Father saying to you? What wisdoms are you learning? Jesus said the first shall be last. Let me honor you and drink from your deep well. WIll you teach us your heart song today?”
No religion, no platforms, no hierarchy means you don’t need to control the image; that God values all and everyone equally has something to give. One body means all parts not just approved ones have something to say and that polished is beneficial for marketing but authentic and raw and real – that’s what leads the kingdom
I merely write what Holy Spirit puts on my heart. I’ve enter into oneness with God who got off his throne to enter into the matrix of His creation. He has called us to Him not the other way around with all of creation and God coming to the churcI’m Im not trying to go the wrong way and be seen in the church, but I do desire to shift the power and paradymn. Move beyond changing the words and great ideas which encompasses the beatitudes and brings tangible love in action to a world in need.
