Inflection of the Infidels

January 11

“And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, THOU SON of David, have mercy on me.”  Mark 10:48





“There just has to be a ‘ground zero’ of ourselves …”










The masses have been frantic for nigh unto two thousand years trying to sever the supply line of HIS grace and mercy; and for even longer, the “many” among men have mocked and missed HIS purposes completely.  “Many will say to ME in that day, LORD, LORD … And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:”  Not until we reach the point of desperation, are we truly ready for JESUS to pass by.  HE may pass our way a thousand times; but it is of no use until we reach a critical mass of conviction on a personal level sufficient to implode that old man of sin.  There just has to be a ‘ground zero’ of ourselves, which will produce the fallout of HIS blessed mercy; for out of that radiation, will arise HIS righteousness.  Tragically, the “many” percentile of men will go to their grave, having stood for their short life here, the futile ground of their cold war with GOD. 

“And ye shall seek ME, and find ME, when ye shall search for ME with all your heart.”  If the Word of GOD is to be believed, HE is still on the move extending mercy and seeking the lost everywhere HIS church goes.  The search party is a two way street though, with HIM shining the light of HIS mercy into the mess of our darkness, as HE hears us cry out for it.  Today however, there remains an ancestry of those ancient agnostics who run interference for the underground, doing all they can in the devils power to thwart the proof of HIS merciful ministry.  “And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, have mercy on us, O LORD, THOU SON of David.”  Your voice will have to come from the depths of your depravity, for the roar of the religious crowd is deafening, and only the inflection of the honest truth seeking infidel will do when HE passes by.  When HE does, would to the LORD that the stones would not have to speak in our stead!  “HE answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.”  This would seem a rock concert more ungodly than anything we have known to our day. 

“Also unto THEE, O LORD, belongeth mercy …”
