In coming to the close of this series, please pray that the Preacher does not 'skip to the end', and rush through the last chapters of this incredible book. With the Devil gone in Judas Iscariot, these chapters frame Jesus's true ministry and intent as He speaks clearly, without parables or mysteries, to the remaining disciples. He speaks of the duality of the coming time, both before His death and beyond, cherishing and sharing of the veiled secret of His glorious return, and the pouring out of His Holy Spirit upon all the earth. Glory hallelujah!

Continuing sharing and exegesis from the Gospel of John, matched by a 'coincidental' journey from Auckland's volcanic centre two week's previously, through the 'open stone' of the Manukau Domain where Carpe Crucis has had its spiritual home for the last two years. Next stop, the Lion Rock in Piha. All glory to God!
Michael Robert Jackson was baptised in the name of Jesus in 2012, after a forty year walk in the wilderness, ten years after he first came to Christ. He is the least of God's children.
