It seems there has been a history of scattering and gathering where the House of Israel (Abraham's seed) is concerned. It's like kneading bread. The house of Israel gets scattered, becomes the leaven, and after it is kneaded and beat up a bit, it is shaped into a loaf, refined in the heat, and finally a delicious loaf pops out of the oven. That's me and you. Hello, glad to meet and know who you really are.
Leaven can go both ways, and has. In the end the leaven of the house of Israel will be good, and that's the promise in the Abrahamic covenant. It's going to end up good. Why else would all the ancient prophets have looked forward to our day?

So what are the choices? Let's try, either stay in the bin, or get into the loaf? Oooo, that takes us back another step. Plant the grain, nourish and grow it, harvest and bin it, take it to the mill and grind it all up, then make the loaf. I'm having too much fun here. it's time to get to work. Where did the grain seed come from? The daddy and mommy seed, and where did that come from? Family history genetics.

God has told us what will happen, but He didn't tell us what we would have to do to get there. We don't know what we will yet have to go through in order to prepare the loaf that we present to Jesus when he comes again. God is gathering right now for the last time, and it's going to work. It is working. It seems like that is a really hard one to grasp. Sometimes all we have to do is connect the little dots. Duhhh, why can't I just do it?

We are the product of our family history. Do what we can with what we have and who we are, then pass it on to the next generation....seed, flour, dough, loaf, bread, butter, jam, yuum.

I like to write like this, but you guys are going to think I'm the village idiot with a weird sense of fun.
