I think everything is going to be all right. And yeah, I am one of those crazies who thinks we are directly involved with bringing the kingdom of God to earth. Sure its already but not yet. Its a state of mind. Its a mystery. and according to a friend it is like Skittles. and to another its like being drunk and fully alive. I am ok saying that these days: I feel drunk and fully alive. Blame it on the mania- or call it chemical imbalance, but I say it is awareness that things are changing. changing for Good.
I spend time seeking God and hearing his/her love. The past few days I have walked the streets of Atlanta and watched the children of God everywhere. Do you strike up conversations with strangers? I do. I think when I see someone coming “look it is Jesus, let me talk to him.” Christ told the disciples that if they did anything to anyone it was like doing it to him.
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Enter, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what’s coming to you in this kingdom. It’s been ready for you since the world’s foundation. And here’s why:
I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room, I was shivering and you gave me clothes, I was sick and you stopped to visit, I was in prison and you came to me.’
37-40“Then those ‘sheep’ are going to say, ‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?’ Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’
41-43“Then he will turn to the ‘goats,’ the ones on his left, and say, ‘Get out, worthless goats! You’re good for nothing but the fires of hell. And why? Because—
I was hungry and you gave me no meal, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was homeless and you gave me no bed, I was shivering and you gave me no clothes, Sick and in prison, and you never visited.’
44“Then those ‘goats’ are going to say, ‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or homeless or shivering or sick or in prison and didn’t help?’
45“He will answer them, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you failed to do one of these things to someone who was being overlooked or ignored, that was me—you failed to do it to me.’
So what? So Nanchez, Jackson, Smith, Kornosky, Johnson, Miller, Herbowitz, and any other last named person walking the streets of Atlanta are all just Jesus. Are they Organic? Fair Trade? maybe. is it captialism, comunism, ron paul- nah man, its just the Kingdom of God and we are watching it happen.
