A bittersweet experience

The role of servants of God is to obtain all the light and truth they can while persuading others to reconcile themselves to it. Joy comes to God’s servants as they see someone benefit from their toil. Sorrow comes to God’s servants as they see the avoidable suffering of those who would benefit from their toil if they would only believe.

Listening to the draft recordings of "The Glory of God is Intelligence" has been bittersweet. On the one hand, I rejoice that God has been so merciful and generous in giving the world these truths. On the other hand, I sorrow as specific situations of specific people scroll across my mind. A much more joyful life than they can imagine is possible and within their reach, but like those who were bitten by poisonous serpents in Moses' time but would not look to the brass serpent and be healed, they will not make use of the miracle.

I'm not sure that so much truth has ever been put into so concise a volume in so plain a way. All blessing…

But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. (Isaiah 11:4)

What does it mean to judge the poor?

"Why aren't there more videos or blogposts?" I am currently writing four books. The topic of each book requires the format of a book because of the depth of the topic and the degree of misunderstanding of each. The books are what God is currently speaking to me about.

"How long will it take until the next book / why are you writing them at the same time?" I don't dictate how the Lord teaches me things and I'm doing all I can to maximize the pace. They are all in various stages, but I don't know which one will be finished first or when.

"What about the audio on 'Glory of God is Intelligence'?" It is still in progress. That was a long book, so it takes a massive amount of time to record/re-record. I really appreciate the person who does this! Anyway, I sure hope no one is waiting for the audio to check out that book.
