“The Word of God doesn't appeal to the "intellect", ... but rather to the intent.
The call of the prophets was ... to return to God. The call of Jesus, as he spoke to the people, was ... to "follow".

- enter into a covenant
- do good things (they are
… but they won't die to self-management and ambition.
It is from the place of desolation that the Holy Ghost will birth your future into His intent. (Joel 1,2,3) … "
