If not for the certainty that those of you who comment are honest, loving, sincere, and prayerful brothers and sisters, I could easily conclude that some of you are masters of the subtle yet effective art of reverse phsychology. All I can say is thank you for understanding the circumstances, and being patient with me. Since this is an outlet that has blessed, and is continuing to bless some of you, I would be remiss if I would not endeavor to continue posting as often as possible, on whatever topics God lays on my heart.
As far as posting when the radio interviews will air, I was told I would be sent an e-mail as to the date, and check every morning to see. As yet, I have not received any updates. I will be posting the regular radio program soon, I believe it is on Spirit One. I know it sounds horrible, but details are not my strength. I do the work, I love the work, but the details escape me for some reason.
I once overheard a man saying that he was a genius trapped in a commoner's body, and smiling to myself, thought it would be better if it was the other way around. Encouraging people to overestimate their strengths, and overvalue their attributes is big business in this country, and some who have tapped into the knowledge that most people aren't happy with themselves are making a killing. Illusion and the packaging of false hopes in tidy little two hundred page books is all the rage these days, and if it were the world endorsing and promoting these practices one could just shake their head and move on.
The danger, is in the fact that the church is promoting the self, when throughout the Word we are admonished to separate ourselves from our flesh, that Christ may have preeminance in our lives.
If I am my own, then I am alone. If I trust in myself, in my strength, in my intelligence, then I will inevitably fail. If however I am Christ's, I am an army, a great majority, a victor, a conqueror, an overcomer, an heir to the kingdom of God.
Today men love to hear about the crown, but they have an aversion when it comes to the cross of Christ. They love to hear about victory, but are taken aback when they discover that in order to obtain the victory one must first surrender themselves in totality.
Preaching the crown without the cross is like having half of an equation and expecting to solve it. It is incomplete, skewed, distorted and dangerous. The best you can do with half the pieces to a puzzle is guess at what it will look like when it is complete. One can only imagine it, never really knowing the truth.
For far too long we have preached only part of the whole in the house of God, for far too long we have given self center stage, and the outcome is obvious wherever you look. The chain reaction of deficiency is quite startling to behold. Because of a deficient gospel message, we've raised up deficient disciples, and the deficient disciples have built for themselves a deficient church.
If we hope to stand during the coming days, we must once again endeavor to preach the entire gospel, the message of both the cross, and the crown, for dark days are soon approaching. I will not shy away from speaking something uncomfortable if it happens to be the truth. In the end a painful truth is better than a comforting lie. And so, I will keep posting as often as possible, and again, as always I thank you for your prayers, and patience.
With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.
