Prophetic Word – Sunday, September 13, 2015
For the Spirit of the Lord says “In the quiet place in the quiet place is where you will find Me. For the day of warfare and the strategy of warfare is changing in this day”
“In days past” says the Lord, “it has been a running and ravaging. But now those who still run and clang are nothing more than a distraction to what I am attempting to do and preparing to do in your midst. For when you discover Me in the quiet place, there you will discover the raw power I plan to release upon My people in the days ahead”.
In The World But Not Of The World
In the devotional I read today from Thomas Merton he commented on an article he read in America magazine on the vernacular liturgy. In this journal entry of Merton’s from December 14, 1966 he writes; “If the Church wants to sweep the world like the Beatles….” After quoting the article Merton goes on to write; “With this kind of mentality, what can you expect? But I’m afraid that is the trouble. The Church is conscious of being inferior to four English kids with mops of hair (and I like them OK). More and more I see the importance of not mopping the world with mops”.
