Called to Rebuild: An Explanation

Personally, I feel God is doing something in our day very similar to what He did with Israel centuries ago.  He is stirring the spirits of His people to return and rebuild the house of God as she once was!  It is an exciting but costly quest, and I hope by these writings to stir something of that vision in the hearts of those who read. 

In the words of Peter Cheltschiski-

“Nothing else is sought in this book” (or in this case, blog) “but that we, who come last, desire to see the first things and to return to them insofar as God enables us.  We are like people who have come to a house that has been burnt down and try to find the original foundations.  This is the more difficult in that the ruins are grown over with all sorts of growths, and many think that these growths are the foundation, and say, ‘This is the foundation’ and ‘This is the way in which all must go,’ and others repeat it after them.  So that in the novelties that have grown up they think to have found the foundation, whereas they have found something quite different from, and contrary to, the true foundation.  This makes the search more difficult, for if all said, ‘the old foundation has been lost among the ruins,’ then many would begin to dig and search for it and really to begin a true work of building upon it, as Nehemiah and Zerubabel did after the destruction of the temple.” (from his book The Net of Faith, written in 1440)

    Beautiful brother. We must see all of it through Christ and with the understanding of the complete work of the cross. Let us also view our own life and relationships through Christ. To see him and fellowship with him in all these things is the joy Paul knew and what I long to know.
    Great stuff
