The fact that you like to work is a gift from God. God likes work and
as we seek first His kingdom our works become His works. That's what
is happening here at Piecemakers. We're up between 3:30 and 4:00 each
morning. We meet for breakfast at Piecemakers at 6:00 for about an
hour. We confess our sins one to another, read the letters from you
and other, business stuff etc. and never does a morning go by that
Marie doesn't feed us full of words of life. The truth that more and
more each day is becoming reality in all of us. On Saturday and Sunday
we meet at 6:00 and walk in the field behind our houses, then eat breakfast
in our homes. We eat dinner at 6:00, also in our homes, and depending
upon what each one's responsibilities are we'll finish the day doing such.
Some of us are in the Piecemakers band so we'll practice, some walk, others
are preparing food for the next day, sorting mail, car repair, etc.
We are willingly allowing God to strip us of our flesh. We are purposing
to die out to ourselves - decreasing so that He increases letting go of everything
that we are and everything that we have been taught and what we think we
know. We don't go to church - we are the church. We live
communally (6-8 in each home). There is no sex, drugs or alcohol.
If one feeds his flesh it will live and your spirit dies - feed your spirit
and your flesh eventually dies. It's hell getting out of hell to get
to heaven which, by the way is right here on earth not some far off place
up in the clouds. I'd like to say that I've arrived - not yet. But,
this is heaven and I wouldn't trade it for anything. The only way that
it works here is to be fully committed to follow Christ. The biggest
prison is ourselves. Our physical body is just a shell carrying our spiritual
body around. It's just a vapor gone in an instant where as our inner man
lives for eternity once again either in heaven or hell depending upon the
choices that we make.
Use your time in jail wisely. Seek God and ask for His help in letting
go of fleshly desires and that your only desire be for Him. He demands that
we become single - married only to Him- not to anything - not to anyone.
Only He will satisfy us - nothing else will no on else will. Read Marie's
"Words of Life" books. They are the format for the new age which is
John, I know from whence I speak for I am a man - no different than you.
See you in heaven?
