New post over at Zechariah821...
Ezekiel 9:4 (KJV) And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof...

I've not blogged here for quite some time. Since last fall, I had been double posting both here and on my WordPress.com site (http://zechariah821.wordpress.com). To explain, I would first post a blog here on this site on Xanga, and then I would copy that post over to my WordPress site (which is a copy of this site, except I couldn't get the same tent of meeting name, hence the name Zechariah821, named after the Scripture:
Zechariah 8:21 The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, ‘Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the LORD and to seek the LORD of hosts; I myself am going.’ 22 Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favor of the LORD.)
But now, in lieu of double posting and in the interest of simplifying and streamlining things, so long as I have my account paid here (through October 2014, I believe), I'll be blogging on my Zechariah821 site at WordPress.com, and then I'll come over here and post a link to those posts. Along with many Xangans, I had been hoping Xanga would make a go of things, so my decision comes as there's been very little activity in terms of site improvement here on Xanga – well over 6 months after the transition to Xanga 2.0.
If you've not already done so, and you'd like to follow my Zechariah821 blog, you are more than welcome to do so. Just click here to visit the blog, and you'll find options to sign up for emails and RSS feeds on the left-hand side of the blog; or, if you're already on WordPress.com, you can opt to follow me there.
Anyhow, I've included below a link to my latest update on Zechariah821, which explains some of what I've been up to and why I've not posted lately... (BTW: If you follow my other blog on Xanga ~ naphtali-deer you've already read some about this... please see my post here.)
Here's a little snippet...
Over these past few years, given my sinful propensity to impetuousness and impatience, I have striven not to rush forward, but have sought to be very cautious as to how to I might proceed to express the zeal God has granted me, that it might be given outlet in a God-directed and God-honoring manner. And, all the while, my inward distress and groanings over the current state of the Bride of Christ have continued to intensify ~ Jeremiah 9:1-2.
And now, over the past few months, God has graciously presented an outward opportunity to work publicly for reformation, a change for the better. Just as Jesus came to the temple and brought the Biblical plumb line to bear: “It is written,” I have been privileged to do likewise...

14 Turn again, O God of hosts!
Look down from heaven, and see; have regard for this vine,
15 the stock that your right hand planted,
and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.
Yours in Christ, for the reforming and reviving of His Church,
"he called it the tent of meeting..."
