Apopipto Lepis… Come Again?

Posted: March 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

This is my first foray into writing a blog other than little notes on Facebook.

…or little notes on MySpace and Xanga (snaps… Remember those!?)

I thought about what I wanted this to be about, and that’s what I wanted my username to be… so I began.

“ButNowISee”…

“Username is reserved. Try But-now-I-see”

“But-now-I-see”…

“Only numbers and letters are available as characters”

Bahhhh… Why would you suggest something to me that I can’t use!?

And I almost decided to quit right there…

Lately, the Lord has been powerfully impacting my life. The Spirit manifested Himself in my life in a way that I was both uncomfortable (in a good way) and amazed with (That is a testimony for another day) back in December at The Freedom Center’s Men’s Ministry meeting. I am sensitive to things that I wasn’t before… I view things differently… its harder to coexist with the “dichotomy” of life… and best of all, I constantly feel His presence in my life… even in the seemingly “mundane”.

Knowledge has combined with experience, and that, man… that is a very powerful thing. A thing that I didn’t know existed before December. I thought I knew, but like Job, “I have declared that which I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.” Job 42:3. Now, I know… or at least, I have a really good idea.

Thus “Apopipto Lepis”… loosely translated, “Fallen Scales”

Acts 9:18… “And immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales…” I’m not one for using parts of a verse as doctrine… but this isn’t doctrine, it’s symbolism, and this is exactly what I feel like these days.

My eyes are being opened to the Kingdom… to what it means to not live by the world’s economy… to deliberately embracing and living out a Kingdom mindset in my life and introducing that to my family dynamic… to not be satisfied with my own ideas of good and bad. What I experienced confirmed the knowledge in me, and the scales have fallen off my eyes to the point where I can literally feel God… seriously…

I want to share the journey of the scales falling off my eyes with as many as want to hear. And from where I’ve come from to where I am… I’m still amazed at the journey, and what this still holds. I’d have de-friended you on Facebook if you told me 10 years ago that I’d experience this!

Thanks for journeying with me… and that’s not an empty thanks… it’s a meaningful thanks, because I have no idea where this will go, and I’ll probably need some of you to help. And that, (In my best Nacho Libre voice) is pretty dang exciting!
