Jeremiah 6:10
To whom should I speak? Whom should I warn? Who will listen to Me? Their ears are dull, they can’t pay attention. For them the Word of Adonai (the Lord) has become unattractive, an object of scorn.

~ We are often unable to tell people what they need to know, because they want to know something else.

The darkness knows neither the light nor itself; only the light knows itself and the darkness also. None but God hates evil and understands it.

Until a man has love, it is well he should have fear. So long as there are wild beast about, it is better to be afraid than secure.

It is because we are not near enough to Thee to partake of Thy liberty that we want a liberty of our own different from Thine.

It is when we are most aware of the factitude of things that we are most aware of our need of God, and most able to trust Him…The recognition of inexorable reality in any shape, or kind, or way, tends to rouse the soul to the yet more real, to its relations with The Higher and Deeper Existence. It is not the hysterical alone for whom the dash of cold water is good. All who dream life instead of living it, require some similar shock.

All the time it was God near her that was making her unhappy. For the Son of Man came not to send peace on earth but a sword, so the first visit of God to the human soul is generally in a cloud of fear and doubt, rising from the soul itself at His approach. The sun is the cloud dispeller, yet often He must look through a fog if He would visit the earth at all.

Complaint against God is far nearer to God than indifference about Him. ~
Quotes from George MacDonald, 1824-1905

It is those, whose voices cause you to think, see, and hear things differently than would occur in your own mind, that often carry you right up to that thin and elusive spot between where the Light begins to invade dark that can, at first feel the most offensive; but if one stays even for a moment they recognize His signature on the intent of His invasion! Its not to destroy Life, but death; not to give Life into our keeping, but to bring us into His! Where all of Life and Light find no shadow, but shining ever on! Blinding only whats dark, never to take away sight, but to give it! We take the offense, in order to be Free of the darkness!  ~ LRV (Hisimagenme)

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

    Mere potentiality without any actuality or realization ( Prima materia in Latin) nowhere exists by itself, though it enters into the composition of all things except the Supreme Cause. It is at one pole of reality, He is at the other. Both are real. Primordial matter possesses what may be called the most attenuated reality, since it is pure indeterminateness , God possesses the highest and most complete reality, since He is in the highest grade of determinateness . To prove that there is a Supreme Cause is one of the tasks of metaphysics the Theologic Science . And this Aristotle undertakes to do in several portions of his work on First Philosophy.

      Thank you for your comment. Though the “language” is a bit complex for me. I am able to understand, but prefer a more simple road of word usage…lol. My conviction being that the use of such “high and heady” word often make those who have no bend towards philosophical lingo feel lost or stupid. God therefore never used such language, He came down to us and made Himself, who breeches all intelligent human capacity to reach Him, breeches the canyon. There is nowhere God “needs” to be proved. He is. Man needs proof, and all the while he cries for it, the “proof” is found staring him in the face. Science is useful, and God began it, but it nor any school of what we call “higher learning” is NEEDED for one to know God.
      Thanks for your interesting thoughts, please feel free to come again and share 🙂 Blessings to you.
