Luke 6 – the teaching of Jesus Christ is the foundation for life

Although one of my many favorite verses, this reminds me to heed and apply Jesus’ wise guidance…and so timely (per next post). Thanks Richard

fellowshipofthesecret

“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like:   He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell.[i] And the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:46-49)

A children’s chorus comes to mind as I read this passage: The wise man built his house on the rock – but what is the rock? “So build your house on…

Battle of Good vs. Evil: what does Jesus Christ teach?

The ministry team was hit by the emotional enormity of the previous night’s sub-human, demon-possessed barbarism. So, it was far from easy to focus and compose ourselves before the morning’s service for healing but the chaplain wisely reminded us of our Lord’s words. Then we sang to the King of Kings about His ruling over everything, and His Spirit joined with ours…So I’ve been brooding over those verses and the ongoing battle.:

In His famous in-depth teaching on blessings (‘The Beatitudes’) delivered to a multitude gathered on a mountainside, the one anointed in power by God’s Holy Spirit explained His purpose of fulfilling the ancient written instructions and prophecies that came from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Jesus’ mission was not to supplant or destroy them but to fulfill them. In saying so, He urged everyone to live so righteously that it exceeds that of the religious teachers, and thereby be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Moreover, in unwrapping authoritatively the purpose of the Torah’s commands about retaliation in order to avoid personal revenge, Jesus revealed it’s His Father’s overriding purpose to love everyone in practical ways.  His listeners had been taught to love their neighbour but to hate their enemy…

“But I say to you: love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain upon the just and the unjust.

“For if you love those who love you, what  reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors (Gentiles) do the same? And if you greet your friends only, what do you do more than others?…

“Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:44-48 NKJV)

There’s also Proverbs 25:21-2 promise, ‘If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink: for in doing so you will heap coals of fire upon his head and the Lord will reward you’ (Amplfd Bible). This doesn’t mean to harm them but to bless after the high priestly manner of igniting an offering to the Lord. So it implies the person’s mind may then be cleansed and changed, even unto repentance.

With all that in mind, I recalled having blessed an individual who’d taken exception to this blog’s claims about listening to the Lord, gifts of the Holy Spirit, the divinity of Jesus and my opinion of the Muslim Book. (Eventually, he said he’d been a ‘Christian’, albeit anti-Trinitarian for years, and now Muslim.)  So I simply wished him a similar encounter with Jesus as I’d had.  Therefore, you may wish to join me in blessing all those opposed to Christians and to the holy scriptures, especially humanists and Muslim fundamentalists, with a few blessings/prayers.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth and Son of God, who came in the flesh, may each person who has false beliefs and doesn’t yet know the Living God be saved by Your grace and mercy, as well as being blessed to:

  • have a direct, personal encounter with You,
  • be aware of Your holiness and person-hood,
  • be convicted of and truly repent of their sins,
  • renounce satan and all its teachings and ways,
  • become born-again of the Holy Spirit and a disciple of Jesus,
  • come into a relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • etc, etc.

Amen…

Matthew 4 – what is “The Gospel of the Kingdom”?

Very appropriate follow-on to my recent 5-fold ‘God-incidental’ jigsaw pieces about the ‘violence’ of the Kingdom. (For a personal introduction to Richard’s work also read about peculiar events on the anniversary of his book ‘The Fellowship of the Secret’.)

 questionmark

 

I am drawing out passages, now from the new Testament which particularly came to my attention during the writing of “The Fellowship of the Secret”. In fact, its original title was a “Busman’s Guide to the Gospel of the Kingdom” for that concept was humanly speaking what triggered my thinking especially in the context of the “Olivet Discourse” v14: “And THIS gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations and then the end shall come”. Typical of how my mind works I was intrigued by Jesus’ reference to THIS gospel [TOUTO to euaggelion] being preached as a witness to the world. Could Jesus have been referring to the gospel age? – I think not. For a start the gospel of the kingdom that Jesus and certainly his apostles will have been preaching will have borne…

Alien destiny

ARC’s continued theme on destiny is worthy of careful study. It’s opened up a perspective upon my personal encounter with Jesus in ’89, which had featured UFOs, by linking that content into past occult activities. (My early blog The Heavenly Visitor – part 2 of ‘Death or Destiny? and recent republication of full testimony “Am Free!” refer.) Thank you very much Mike & Jeremy.

Sons Of Issachar

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott – 

In the pursuit of our destiny there is something we need to be careful of: coveting somebody else’s calling. If we do, it is possible we will find ourselves pursuing an alien destiny. I am not talking about little green (or grey) men, I am talking about chasing something God never intended for us, but for someone else. That can lead us into frustration and confusion because something seems to be constantly obstructing our path, hindering us or tripping us up. All right, no-one said it would be easy, but this is more than just obstacles to overcome, this is a dead end.

Arthur Burk calls it an ‘alien birthright’, and likens it to an immaculately constructed train track (complete with ballast, signals and crossings) laid across the middle of a cornfield we are called to cultivate: it leads nowhere, and meanwhile it gets in the…

‘Violent’ Kingdom breakthrough, seizing God-given opportunities – part 2

Continuing from Part 1 let’s look at the fifth jigsaw piece that fell into my hand:

SEIZING GOD-GIVEN OPPORTUNITIES

Settling down for an afternoon tea during that Sunday’s live streaming from Church of His Presence in Alabama, we heard pastor John Kilpatrick read the parable of the talents and the fearful servant and teach on Seizing God-given Opportunities (at 1 hour 18 minutes of video link below).

He encouraged everyone to open up their spirits when listening and said Holy Spirit had told him a few days ago,

“Start telling your audiences that whenever a word is given to them, especially a word from the Lord – not a sermon but a word from the Lord – tell them to let the Holy Spirit dilate their spirit so it opens up so it can receive and be imprinted, embedded in their spirit-man.” [At 1:19:00 on this Church of His Presence video]

John called attention to the fact that “Opportunities are birthed in God’s mind!” and went on to consider how we react to them and that, in moving towards God-given opportunities, we usually encounter strong opposition that’s often unforeseen and inexplicable.

He confessed that preachers encourage their flock in moving forward in their discipleship, but inadequately warn about the adversity that arises along their journey. In other words, we are inviting warfare! – not only of a spiritual nature but also of every kind of non-spiritual adverse event!  Also, we can be very dilatory ruminating over opportunities and acting upon them

So if you are severely struggling, especially from satanic strategies on your journey this exciting one hour message will strengthen and encourage you. He stresses it’s not about waiting on the Lord, which is very different, but watching for and acting upon what He’s presenting us with.

On researching this material John was surprised at a definition he found, and which has a direct bearing upon my subject; ‘violent’ persons taking the Kingdom. (Note: you may want to read previous Part’s updated comment thread on Matt 11:12.)

John found ‘seize’ means ‘to take possession of suddenly and by force’, and ‘an attack, a strike’. So this is how we need to handle and deal with God-given opportunities and break through all opposition (from 1:28:00 on video). John concludes therefore, that Holy Spirit is saying

“When I present you with an opportunity, strike it! When I present you with an opportunity seize it! Lay hold of it! Grab it! If you have to do it violently – grab it!. Why? Because opportunity will fade away like a watercolour.”

The Lord is saying,

“I’m presenting you with opportunities all the time but you are taking too much time!”

So seize that opportunity suddenly – and forcefully if necessary!

The latter part of the message covered working through the adversity that’s always a sure sign of a God-given opportunity, because its purpose is to thwart the Lord’s purpose in our lives and our furthering His Kingdom. It was also confirmation of my having stood against repeated strong criticism of this blog – and encourages my continuing a specific course of counter-action that started in addressing a controversial topic.

That is, having quickly and strongly reacted against detrimental comments I’m seeing and now seizing the God-given opportunity hidden behind that opposition.

It was one reason why I republished the core of and revisited my testimony. Those who read its new covering page on this blog’s menu may have been surprised at the opening paragraph. (It was inserted last, after having written the rest.)

Having published “Am Free!” True Story I was humbled to get an inkling of the Lord’s purpose behind that opportunity: to alert me to the fruition of an awesome vision I was blessed with in early 1992 – “All Hail The Lamb!

Lost destiny restored

Thought-provoking when read in tandem with the previous post’s remarks on the revelation of the ‘mystery’ that had been ‘hidden in God’, to which Paul refers in Ephesians.

Sons Of Issachar

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott – 

Purpose

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).

We can only love God because He first loved us. The Father sent Jesus because He loves us. All He is looking for is for us to respond to that love and come into a relationship with Him. Then we will begin to know that we have been called according to His purpose.

Do we know what that purpose is? Are we seeking for it? Are we just aimlessly wandering around hoping it will materialise for us? Or are we self-absorbed, living only for the present, wrapped up in trivial self-gratification, in material possessions, position or power?

Perhaps it is buried deep within our hearts, beneath layers of disappointment, frustration and regret built…

Good Friday Insights – part 1

The Cross at Ffald-y-Brenin, ‘miraculously’ provided and located as directed by the Lord.

Note: this from 2016 is republished as it leads into Thursday’s post on the Crucifixion and the directly related insights that blessed me this year..

Reflections upon the events of Jesus’ betrayal and execution whilst we were on a Quiet Day’s ‘Appointment in Jerusalem’, added to my ongoing meditation upon His prayer made not in the garden of Gethsemane, but after Passover in the upper room and offered up for Himself, the first disciples and every subsequent believer (John 17).

So my thoughts meandered around Jesus’ praying to Father that He’d “manifested Your Name” and for His disciples to see the glory He had with Father before the Beginning, as in my footnote to the word on Preparation for Enlargement.

Our modern concept of ‘name’ doesn’t convey the depth of meaning appreciated in biblical times. I recalled Hebrew and Semitic studies scholar Dr Michael S Heiser’s (bio) referring at Exodus 23:20-23 to the Angel of the LORD as having ‘Yahweh’s “Name” in him…which gives a glimpse of the Hebrew Bible’s ‘Name Theology’ in which reference to “the Name” actually refers to Yahweh Himself…Thus, ‘Yahweh indicates He is in the Angel…yet in other passages, Yahweh and the Angel can be simultaneously – but separately – present (Judges 6:11-26) [Old Testament Godhead Language].

That’s remarkably similar to the principle of quantum entanglement as noted On Engaging Time – yet is in the Bible!  He goes on to say the divine “Name” represents His presence, which is also God’s “essence”.

So over silent lunch with mind in ‘neutral’, an insight suddenly occurred to me and I noted it afterwards as an equation in my Bible’s rear fly-leaf.:

‘GOD’s NAME = HIS GLORY = EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM (KNOWN & UNKNOWN)’

Also, the last part is equivalent to:

‘NOT YET KNOWN  BUT BEING REVEALED IN AND ACROSS (ie. A +) TIME’

Now please note: in my mind I was going to write “in and throughout” but actually found myself writing “across”, which doesn’t make as much sense when considering the full continuity of time – BUT this change directly relates it to the Crucifixion.

From my earliest days of being ‘born again’ I’d heard about the Cross being pivotal in, and thus central to, human history. Now, however, I understood it’s existed throughout history from the very Beginning, and connected into the ‘mystery’ of ‘Fathers Own Objective’ that Apostle Paul revealed to the Ephesians, as noted in my intro to God’s Eternal Purpose.

I imagined the Cross’ horizontal beam s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g…r-i- g-h-t…a-c-r-o-s-s…t-i-m-e.

Next, I scribbled a cloud shape with arrows poking out of it to represent different epochs and wrote within its curvy outline, ‘Cloud of Unknowing’ (as in the title of the medieval book of Christian contemplative mysticism on the being and nature of God – see Wikipedia).

THEN right after jotting those notes and awaiting the first session after lunch, this famous Welsh hymn was played and I was transfixed by the chorus line,

“He can never be forgotten throughout heaven’s eternal days.”

Now, as I blog and search on Hebrew name theology I find a very informative article on ‘Ha Shem’ at Hebrew4Christians, to which is added this postscript:

‘The point of all this is to demonstrate that the “Name of the LORD” is none other than Yeshua (or Jesus). Yeshua = YHVH…The idea of “Name” means more that mere phonetics; it has to do with the deeds, acts, power, reputation and glory of God. Those who do not honor the Son do not honor the Father who sent Him (John 5:23). Denigrating Yeshua by even hinting that He is less than God Almighty is to desecrate the Name of God…’ (Divine Names Theology?)

The deep wisdom of that article is worthy of contemplative reflection. Yet it also speaks to me of another aspect of the Lord’s name relating directly to the Crucifixion, about which I’ll tell another time…(published Maunday Thursday 2017).

Also, yesterday Good Friday 2017  I was blessed with further related insights, which will be shared in Part 2.

The vital prerequisites of Christianity 101

Although referring to American churchianity RJ Dawson hits the nail smack on the head on how to home in on and follow Jesus closely…

Real Christianity

.

         When I was in college many moons ago I learned about prerequisite courses. I could not take a specific class, for example, if I did not take another class first.

.

IN THE BEGINNING

         The prerequisite courses were generally introductory 101s and oftentimes a repetition of basic high school courses. Much of the first two years of college contains classes like this. On the surface it appears to be a good idea in order to fill in any education gaps using a college level standardized form and facilitate a greater understanding of the foundational stuff required for the higher learning of junior and senior years.

         On the other hand it is an opportunity to force students to extend their university years and bring more income into the institution. One might reject that notion, but colleges and universities exist to make money. Even public colleges supported by…

Timely in view of what I’m preparing…

Shining a light in the darkness

I had written a blog post recently about how dark it feels like the world is becoming.

Although it may feel like there is a darkness surrounding us, I was gently reminded last night that I need to share an even MORE important TRUTH.

As I read from the Book of Mysteries: The Shadow Man (Day 104)…the Father allowed me to review select events of years past in a matter of moments.

The Shadow Man – our enemy (Satan) seeks to seek and destroy. But the take-away we MUST grasp is The enemy has NO power over us – unless we give it to him. Recall that the battle over the shadows and darkness starts in the mind (Eph 6:10-18)

The reality is – The Cross was a monumental moment in history. When Jesus died, the enemy thought he had gotten the upper hand.

Today’s Lion Bites: a re-visitation of fire

World In Fire by Danilo Rizzuti“I am revisiting you with My fire and My power.

“I am calling you to come into a deeper and fuller encounter with Me and with who I am.

“Move towards Me now as I call to you, to meet you where I am in this new season. Come and meet with Me.

“For there is a place, I have prepared for you of fullness that will satisfy the longing you have. Come and behold Me as I hold you. Come and receive of My power and My fire in these days. For there is much to receive and much to outwork but first receive of My fresh-fire and My power.”

There is a new baptism of fire coming to the church and God is inviting us to pursue it and chase after Him in a new way. We are to position ourselves for the fullness of the fire and the fullness of His power in these days. So choose to position yourself and choose to press in for this fullness for these are the days of a new outpouring of God’s Baptism of fire.

Matthew 3:11
“I baptise you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

God’s GPS#3 con’td – Prophetic promises of fresh revelation – Part 2

The second email issued in the early hours comes through Lana Vawser in Queensland, and which reiterates a word for 2017 and thereby strongly emphases the Lord’s call:

DON’T FORESAKE THE SECRET PLACE!

LanaVawserI keep hearing the words over and over “Don’t forsake the secret place”. It has been weighing SO HEAVY on my heart lately. There has been such a stirring in my heart that the Lord is releasing a greater invitation to His people to COME DEEPER and COME HIGHER!!!

I had an encounter with Jesus many months ago and He spoke to me about a season of radical acceleration, breakthrough momentum and increase. The MANIFESTATION OF LIFE was springing up ALL AROUND!!!

When Jesus spoke to me about this season we are in and moving further into and how exciting it will be. It will be the “FINALLY SEASON”. The season that we have been waiting for. Where we begin to see the first fruits of breakthrough, we begin to see the explosion of Ephesians 3:20 in our lives, and we begin to see the increased momentum of the move of the Holy Spirit amongst the body of Christ bringing the GREATEST AWAKENING that we have EVER seen. The AWAKENING so glorious, it will spill out into the nations, and we will begin to see a great divine turning, returning and restoration within nations.

In this encounter, Jesus grabbed my hands and with such love in His eyes, He said to me “But don’t lose Me in the breakthrough”. In this encounter I began to weep and weep as I felt the weight of the warning, the weight of the invitation to come deeper and the absolute pure truth and reality that He is so jealous for His people. His heart is always longing and crying out for deeper intimacy with His people. His heart so full of love for His people, so longing to dine with His people and share His heart.

This encounter burnt so deeply in me the heart of the Lord for His people to KNOW HIM and I have carried the fear of the Lord concerning this season of acceleration and breakthrough, crying out for wisdom on how to steward this season of breakthrough, increase, acceleration and extension. I believe that as we are entering deeper into this season that is SO GLORIOUS, the Lord out of His love, continues to warn us, to call us deeper, to remind us to remain in the secret place and draw us back when we wander.

Jesus is teaching us right now how to STEWARD THIS SEASON WITH PURITY AND INTEGRITY and it all flows from THE SECRET PLACE.

DON’T DESPISE THE ‘FRUSTRATION’, REST AND LET HIM TAKE CARE OF THE REST

There is a FRUSTRATION that many are feeling in this season. Things are not happening fast enough, or there’s another delay, or things aren’t opening in the way that has been expected, but I want to encourage you to REST and let Him take care of the REST. I have said many times in this season that He is going to lead you to something better than you could ever imagine or expect, but there is a deeper level of surrender to His WAYS and TIMING in this season that is required. Don’t rush your process, continue to delight in Him. Make MEETING WITH HIM DAILY with NO AGENDA your greatest priority and the LIFE and ABUNDANCE that shall flow from that place will leave you in AWE. The frustration many of you are feeling, the Lord is using, to draw you closer to Him, because He wants to release greater revelations of who He is, His beauty and His love. He hasn’t forgotten your dreams and the promises He has given you, He’s working deep on your foundations to keep you anchored in Him.

DON’T LOSE THE KEY AND YOUR KEYS – WORSHIP

In this season of acceleration, where there is a temptation to forsake the secret place, not from ill intention, but getting carried away in the breakthrough and joy of the season, even becoming distracted by manifestations of breakthrough, favour and increase – WORSHIP must be a priority every day. Worship will keep you covered, worship will keep your eyes on Him, worship will keep you aligned, yielded and sensitive to Him.

I had a vision as many were getting carried away in this whirlwind season of acceleration beginning to come up against situations that seemed “locked” and they didn’t know the “way through” or how to “unlock” breakthrough in prayer through intercessory strategies. They were running around in a frenzy and they were panicked saying “Where are my keys? I can’t find my keys, where have my keys gone?

“It was then that I saw Jesus standing before them and with a smile on His face He spoke,

“I AM THE KEY! In Me are ALL KEYS of STRATEGY, WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE. DON’T LOSE THE KEY AND YOUR KEYS – WORSHIP!!!”

Last year the Lord was emphasising strongly this is the season of the FIRST LOVE, a great returning, and this year, I believe He is emphasising it EVEN MORE, because of the mighty acceleration, breakthrough and increase we are beginning to see.

DON’T FALL ASLEEP AND BACK INTO COMPLACENCY

“Don’t fall asleep and back into complacency. I want a BRIDE THAT BURNS!!!! To COUNTERACT the SLUMBER – WORSHIP and do not forsake the secret place! Be INTENTIONAL to WORSHIP!!!! WORSHIP WILL KEEP YOU AWAKE!!!!”

“In the secret place right now, you are going to encounter My fire and the power of My Spirit as you worship, that is going to set you alight! It’s going to take you into realms of intimacy with Me that will see your heart and soul filled with the greatest, deepest peace and joy you have ever known. It’s not the time to ‘sit back and relax’ as the pressure lifts. It’s the time to press even deeper still into knowing Me. It’s the time to worship like you have never worshipped before. It’s the time to dance with Me and catch My gaze as I look lovingly towards you and let Me lead you. Let Me guide you. Forsake all other things that are pulling at you, and focus on Me. Trust Me, for I am taking you to places that you have never imagined or dreamed. This is the year where I am causing you to THRIVE and ARRIVE but all life and increase and long-lasting fruit will flow from the secret place.”

ALLOW ME TO PREPARE YOU FOR YOUR GREATEST DAYS UPON THIS EARTH

“It will be EVIDENT in this season who has been in the secret place and who hasn’t.”

“I am highlighting the lamps! I am highlighting the lamps! Look at your lamps! How are your lamps? Are your lamps full? Or are your lamps empty? Do not be found “not ready”. You must be found ready!!!! Come deeper, come deeper My people. Come to Me, not in fear, come to Me in delight, to know Me for who I am. I am working for your good, I am working in your heart, soul and life to set you up for longevity. For what I am doing and about to do in the earth, My people must be rooted and anchored in Me and know the secret place like never before. There must be a new level of sensitivity to see where I am going and what I am doing, and you will only increase in sensitivity as you press into Me and allow Me to teach you and mould you. Your greatest days are upon you, and My heart of love for you, My heart as a good Father is yearning, for you to yield and come deeper in the secret place and allow Me to prepare you for your greatest days upon this earth.”

SATURATE YOURSELVES IN THE WORD

“There’s a call being released from My heart right now to saturate yourselves in the Word like never before. Feast upon it day and night. Surround yourself with it daily. There’s a temptation to ‘snack’ here and there upon the Word in this season as things as this acceleration increases, but it’s in this place, you need to slow down and FEAST AND CHEW on the Word. It’s CRUCIAL My people are in a place of MEDITATION upon My Word in this season of ELEVATION AND ACCELERATION.”

God’s GPS#3: Prophetic promises of fresh revelation – Part 1

Puzzle in sky - Idea go[GPS = Global Prophecy Signals] Here’s the first of two emails found sitting together in my in-tray (time-stamped within 1/4 hour of each other at about 3:30am) – from opposite sides of the world on a related theme. As noted below, this published by UK Prophetic Words relates to recent posts. (Click title for link):

I am Pouring Out Revelation

I am pouring out My spirit in the night watches. I am showing forth revelation in the dark hours. For this is a time of multiplication. I have much to speak to you and much I would have you know. There is so much information to give you that I have to input into your very spirit what I’m going to be doing this year.

There will be a transition from what you have been told is prophetic to what is prophetic. The old ways are going to melt away and you are going to see revelation come from the most unexpected places. You will see it spring forth out of dry ground and out of rocks and crevices. The lowly places shall be exalted and those who have sat in obscurity shall come forth with such wisdom, you will be astounded. Do not limit those you have not heard of, for I do not limit them. I am pouring out revelation to those who will hear. I am pouring out revelation to those who will stay awake for My word. I am pouring out revelation to My sons and daughters who have a hunger and a thirst above all other things.

Vida Caplin 14 Jan’17

footNote:

This word accurately describes the blessing that inspired me whilst digging into Jesus’ role in Creation. Eg., after publishing the continuation without properly mulling over its draft I awoke in the night to realise my mistake in having given the impression that Jesus spoke in Greek, not  Aramaic, as is well-known!

In referring to the Greek text I argued ‘a clear allusion to the future and processes/action (‘yet’)’ implies ‘a deliberate, strong use by the Lord Jesus Himself of a distinction between time and space.’  Yet in the night, it occurred that could well be untrue as Aramaic may not convey the subtle nuances shown in Greek. Also, the authors could have taken it upon themselves to use those different terms for ‘world’.

So I asked, “What’s the answer?” to that conundrum.  I was quickly reminded Jesus’ early disciples lived under the Holy Spirit’s anointing – and there’s a verse of scripture where Jesus promises that He’d remind them of everything He’d taught them. Thank you Lord!

Hence, the Postscript with its extra, revelatory insight.
