Day 12 of the Fruit Fast. The body temple is definitely cleaning itself out as it was alittle bloated today. i am very happy with this having been through it before and understand what is going on. We have been able to secure some delicious navel oranges as reasonable prices this week so i stayed on Orange Island for breakfast this morning. The orange is a great blessing indeed. The more i contemplate the depth of the Love of Christ for me, the more i feel like i am so far from where i should be in Christ. i can relate to the Bible when it says:
Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
Ezekiel 36:31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
i am finding such thoughts are coming with more clarity and force since the beginning of the Fruit Fast. Yet, i know this is the very beginning of the journey. The Lord has inspired me to preach on the subject of His great Love this Sabbath and what it means to the true believer. Also to record it for distribution (which i made ready to do). i pray its a blessing and an edifying power to all the church of the Firstborn above.
Today's fare was:
32oz of fresh squeezed OJ. 8 navel oranges cut into quarters (sucked the sweet juice and flesh from the quarters).
Half a watermelon, 5 figs, 3 bananas, 1 avocado.
Spiritual bread: Deut 19-22
Exercise: 200 pushups, 20 tricep presses (took me only 10 minutes). Not a bad little workout.
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
Grace and Peace be multiplied.
