In response, I have received astonishing support and the past week has been one of revelation, at least to me personally.
I began my research (see Part 6) in Genesis, and it is producing results so rich that I will be breaking the book down into smaller segments just to communicate the blessing, starting with Part 8.
But along with this work came encouragement – from you! A reader and dear friend saw my concerns over drawing parallels with America and told me I needed to get hold of a book called Harbinger, by Jonathan Kahn, a messianic believer. I did, and it consumed me for three solid days. This book validates the connection between Old Testament prophecies and the parallel with America beyond my wildest dreams, and I found myself bathed in tears of realization that God is speaking loudly.
I also received links from another friend who showed that the spirit of unity is moving in a remnant of Christian hearts all over the world, but getting it into the mainstream of our daily thoughts takes time.
I was empowered by the Spirit to keep on going, even though I do not know what form this will take. I stand at the threshold of how to turn the research into the story.
It is time for our disunity to take center stage in repentance. This disunity involves many levels: black and white; catholic and protestant; liberal and conservative; Christian and Jew; Democrat and Republican; young and old.
In fact, our disunity defines us.
So this morning as I sat down to write this blog, I turned as always to the Bible reading program for this year, and was blessed once again. Streamside lives to unblock the flow of unity that Jesus commanded us to pursue:
“If only you had paid attention to My commandments!
Then your well-being would have been like a river,
And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”
Isaiah 48:18 (NASB)
Hurry back soon to share the blessings of parallel with Genesis chapters 1 – 6!
