thank you crossjordon for sharing above....
You hit on some good points of truth. When I read your post, I became stirred up. I felt led to look up the definition of imprint-you made great truths about music and the contemporary and of a returning to the old paths.
1. To produce (a mark or pattern) on a surface by pressure.
2. To produce a mark on (a surface) by pressure.
3. To impart a strong or vivid impression of: "We imprint our own ideas.
4. To fix firmly, as in the mind: He tried to imprint the number on his memory.
5. To modify (a gene) by chemical means.
1. A mark or pattern produced by imprinting. See Synonyms at impression.
2. A distinguishing influence or effect: Spanish architecture that shows the imprint of Islamic rule.
3. A publisher's name, often with the date, address, and edition, printed at the bottom of a title page of a publication.
I felt led to share this because the vision of the papers piling up and all the copying and pasting that is done all over the net, from one to another and on this forum... from books, publishers, authors, men and women.... but folks its not the word of God , nor the Holy Spirit. thats a fact. I too have read few but great books, but I dont carry them around and I dont idolize the teachings of man.
God will tear all our idols down and away from you, if you dont surrender them. You and I must care what Jesus cares and what He desires for us to do we must obey Him and not ignore HIM. People the hour is late. I used to not think it was, but it is late....When He comes , will you be found in HIM? I ask you again, do you know that when the GOOD LORD comes, will you be ready? will you be found in Him, and on that solid ROCK?
Books and mens writings is not the TRUE word of GOD, its not...
Its another imprint of something else passed on and on.... He has caused me to feel sick and to be troubled by what He is showing me and it is still upon me today. Let us not be like the Isrealites at the bottom of the mountain lolly gagging around, while Moses is in the face of God atop the mountain. Dont turn away from Him and to what the Lord is speaking and showing forth in this late hour, dont wait til it is to late and the door is SHUT on YOU.
You can not say the Lord has not shown and you did not know because you do know. He is showing and speaking to those with ears to hear and eyes to see, WHY? LOVE!!! Because He loves us.
He will not force you, He gave us free will, SO you have a choice TODAY but come judgement day , it is His choice and you will have NO SAY!
This is not pretty what He is showing and saying and giving forth. It doesnt feel good inside of my belly and it is a disgusting picture of How He sees it!
In the publishing industry, an imprint can mean several different things:
* As a piece of bibliographic information about a book, it refers to the name and address of the book's publisher and its date of publication as given at the foot or on the verso of its title page.
* It can mean a trade name under which a work is published. One single publishing company may have multiple imprints; the different imprints are used by the publisher to market works to different demographic consumer segments. In some cases, the diversity results from the takeover of smaller publishers (or parts of their business) by a larger company. This usage of the word has evolved from the first meaning given above.
What is more important to you, to feast of the banquet table of another, as the lady in this dream above is laying out before you, with little or no meat, only beakers of milk to sip in...a beaker is not very big and in this dream it was not very big. This table in this dream is not the table of the Lord, for the Lords table shall have NO flies feasting afterward...
This banquet has no untensils, these people are not equipped.
When you and I come to the Lords table and partake of His food , He will eqiup us and we will have those tools placed within our very hands by the Lord Himself, for the eating of His food. It will be Him who places the tools in your hands. No more self serving our own appetites and desires, let go and let God feed you and I with His heavenly manna and we will NEVER desire the spoiled food of others passed down.
God knows who He is speaking too in this. Some of you have been on the milk far to long and it time now to get into the meat of His word and the depth of His truth and what the Lord desires for you and for you to so desire what Jesus has for you and to seek it from HIM, from His face and eat of His word, to get it deep down into that belly .
1Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, 2make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. 3Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. 5Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; 13for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
14Do all things without grumbling or disputing; 15so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, 16holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain.
14Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers. 15Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. 16But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, 17and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and they upset the faith of some. 19Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”
20Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. 21Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. 22Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 23But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels. 24The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, 25with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, 26and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.
20Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, 21equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
much love in Jesus~
