PostSubject: Ananias Was "SENT"    Thu Dec 31, 2015 7:39 am



Saul set out in one direction of his own volition, with determination plan and a purpose (though misguided) and was arrested by love, taken into custody, rehabilitated and "sent" in another totally contrary direction.


Are we "sent" and if so...

By Whom?
Certain personal inflections (ego) give rise to the contrary, they give us away.
Saint Paul, also struggled with this, are we greater than he, above this temptation...?
I think not. 




Basic Definition. Mission is the divine activity of sending intermediaries, whether supernatural or human, to speak or do God's will so that his purposes for judgment or redemption are furthered. The biblical concept is expressed by the use of verbs meaning "to send, " normally with God as the expressed subject. The Hebrew verb is salah [j;l'v] and the Greek is apostello [ajpostevllw]. These terms emphasize the authoritative, commissioning relationship involved. The Scriptures also employ the cognates apostolos [ajpovstolo"] ("apostle, " the one sent) and apostole [ajpostolhv] ("apostleship, " the function of being sent), referring to the one sent and his function.
(Baker's Evangelical Dictionary Of Biblical Theology)

Ironically when I completed this post...I hit the "send" button?
Yes, it was by my own finger physically but I have to wonder...why was I so compelled to do this? And why so "passionate" about a subject I couldn't have cared less about in my former state?


Maybe someone more learned who is perhaps Truly "sent"will "send" a response to these questions..hmmm?
