A number of years ago, I was at the end of a 5-year media fast (well, specifically, no TV, movies, radio) and the Holy Spirit clearly told me to watch a movie. That movie was The Matrix. I found it profound for a number of reasons. I asked God why He wanted me to see it. He said that the Unseen Realm will always rule the seen realm and that I must always play by the rules of the Unseen Realm, not the rules of the seen realm, or I would pay a great price.

“What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches.” (Luke 13:18-19)

And much like a mustard seed are the promises God has made to us. When He made them, some broke forth quickly and fruitfully — but others have lain dormant, waiting for us to re-visit them and water them with hope and faith and prayer and proclamation.

“…imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.” (Hebrews 6:12)

“…for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)

Here’s a short, fun video I made
that is filled with great images,
quotes and scriptures about
the Great Commission.
We were CREATED for personal intimacy. 
When we don’t experience and know and enjoy Jesus as a real person,
we will always look for human substitutes,
either in a boyfriend or girlfriend or mate or a community.
And these substitutes can quickly become idols.
That’s why we need to seek after His heart every day.

The Unseen rules that which is seen.
The Eternal rules that which is temporal.
The litmus test for us (spiritually) is:
Where do we invest most of our time and passion —
in the unseen and eternal realm or the seen and temporal?

“Men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do…” (1 Chronicles 12:32)

Such an INDESPENSABLE understanding — to understand the CONTEXT in which you and your family and nation and world are placed — and so, to know what to strategically do in any given situation and how to respond rightly to events. A matter worthy of time, effort and strenuous listening — even at times, a matter of life and death.
