Sometimes I wonder if I keep fighting distraction or whether I need a kick to be better motivated keeping up better with my blogs (sigh).
Anyway...hi everybody, and here's what's new__ WE FINALLY HAVE A BUYER FOR OUR CONDO !! Without boring you with details, it looks like we will be closing the sale on Dec.17th. Just like many others, we are not excited about the sale price, but the idea is that we will yet be able to find a good deal on a nice home because the market is still so depressed. We've already begun the search, and have a very good real estate agent helping.
It's simple ... God already has the house, and we simply have to 'bump into it'. His Spirit will assure us without doubt what's right.
After the sale of our condo, we will instantly be free from payments such as mortgage and condo dues --- this is the part that already has us feeling 'lighter' and more free. The thought of no longer owing anyone anything except for normal bills such as utilities, etc. is a good feeling.
Now concerning WHERE will move to and buy a new home ... we have no leading from God but to remain within our area here in SW Florida. Not much of the future has yet been revealed concerning greater expansions of ministry (although I am constantly communicating with the Lord on such matters). Because of the kind of world we all now live in, who knows where we may end up someday.
Since leaving the Bahamas in 1972 to live in the U.S., I honestly admit that nothing ever has felt like 'home' again. Even thoughts of possibly returning there someday don't stir my heart much at all---over the decades, something has happened with ministry for the Kingdom and making numerous geographical moves of where to live, that like never before, I truly feel like a 'stranger and alien' in this world (Heb 11:13 & 1 Peter 2:11). Maybe because I'm simply getting older--- when it comes to feeling 'homesick' my thoughts are frequently filled with being with the Lord in Heaven, the Millenium here on earth with His constant tangible Presence, and of course, the New Jerusalem and new planet (Rev.21:1-2) which He will create after burning this one up (2nd Peter 3 :10).
Meanwhile, Dennis Staysniak (who counsels me in media matters, and other things--he does my website) and I are constantly discussing how the Lord may want to use my ministry including tecnology such as Video-Conferencing, Tele-Presence, satellite meetings, streaming, etc,etc,etc. I hope to soon post my first 'monthly video update' on my website starting next year (which is real soon !! LOL)
Finally, the artwork on my book "The False Doctrine Of Covering" looks great!! (Charity & her husband Andre in Clearwater, FL) having done such an excellent job). This week I am now in the process of finalizing the steps for producing printed copies for sale on my site. I believe this book will set many people FREE. It's also very likely I will do a Spanish version of this book, because many Hispanic Christian circles are heavily involved with this age-old doctrine from the early 70's.
