Empty Mind Spaces; Stinky or Heavenly
Mood:  quizzical
Now Playing: Umma23
Topic: Mark 13:14-16

S.

Mark 13:14-16 (NKJ) So when you see the abomination (an idol that stinks) of desolation (to lay waste, to isolate, an empty space, to strip of treasures), spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains (to keep the mind suspended) . Let him who is on the housetop (mind/thoughts) not go down into the house, nor enter to take anything out of his house. And let him who is the field, not go back to get his clothes (that which he used for his own protection).

O.

Jesus was telling about the future, OUR future.

Daniel had prophesied that the 'admonition of desolation'...A STINKY IDOL, would stand where it isn't supposed to be. And it is stressed, here, THAT WE ARE TO UNDERSTAND THIS!!

Then, Jesus says, at THAT time, right when this happens, the people in Judah...in praise and confession... are to flee to the 'mountains', a position much higher than Jerusalem. They are not to return to 'get their clothes'.

 God's people, when the 'stinky idol' appears, are to go HIGHER and are to LEAVE THEIR OLD GARMENTS/COVERING, BEHIND!

What is 'the abomination of desolation" ?

Abomination: a stinky, destestable idol. Stinky, for the purpose of turning us away. An idol is anything that is excessively admired or/and excesively devoted to.

Desolaton: a lonely, isolated and empty space or chasm that is wasted and ruins; comes from the word meaning; 'to strip her of treasures'.

A.

I can have wasted spaces of isolated, lonely thoughts in my mind; a waste of thinking space. This is where 'stinky-idols' or 'stinkin' thinkin' can dwell in my thinking...a discusting, excessive admiration for something or someone that is positioned above godly thoughts. These thoughts take up a chasm of space that could be full of 'treasure-thoughts' but instead are 'excessing' about what isn't God.

Once I recognize that this is happening in my mind, I am to immediately confess these thoughts to God and then praise Him for HIS thoughts/treasure-thinking.

This place of confession and praise is an instrumental possition! Because in this possition, I am to shun these wasted, stinky thoughts, lifting my thoughts to God with expectation and excitment. I am NOT to be shamed, but am to guide my thoughts into the place under God's wings, the place where my 'I-can-do-it-myself' thoughts mean nothing. I am to suspend my thoughts to God and allow Him to form, filling that empty chasm.  

P.

Thank You, Father, that You know how we think and how to heal our thoughts! Holy Spirit, alert me to 'stinky-idol-thoughts' so that I can 'suspend my thinking' to the Father. Fill up my empty spaces, Father, with Your revelation and understanding!
