Context: Denied Trice

What is man believing/doing?:

What is making man to believe/do as he is doing?:


We are not told much about the prayer life of these disciples, their spiritual preparation and armament. We know that later in their Apostleship they saw it as an absolute essential. That could be because of their failure to perform spiritually in the least regard during the entirety of this momentous event. It is not an oversight of their master for He modeled it most perfectly, it is the reality that each man must find the need and the opportunity them self.

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. People on all sides are responding to fear. With the wheels now in motion it is easier to choose sides with the aggressor to subdue ones exposure to the fear. But the aggressors are responding to fear of their own, fear of a much greater consequence.
  2. Intention/deduction/prediction/expectation, all things we base our actions/responses upon, are merely entry points to matters and consequences that are either solved in the spirit or exasperated/avoided in the more of the same.
