Tim Keller Tweets


Tim Keller continues to impress me with his ability to balance theology with the burdens of Little Joe and beaten down Johanna.


  1. Damon Thompon
    • Faith for a Kairos Moment
      • Model that those that been forgiven much, love much [ Segment 20 ]
        • Therefore, I tell you, . her many sins have been forgiven — as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little( Luke 7:47 )
      • Without Faith it is impossible to please God
        • By faith Enoch was taken up so that he did not see death. He could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.
          And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. ( Hebrews 11:5-6 )
      • I got to know God in the Land of The Living
        • The Lord is My Salvation
          …Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence.
          I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.
          Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.… ( Psalm 27:12-4 )




Here are some of his recent tweets.

Jan 2018

  1. The security of Jesus’ love enables you to need less, and to love more.
  2. The God of the Bible is a God of grace, who is faithful to us even when we are unfaithful to him.
  3. Fastest way to become a Pharisee is to hate Pharisees.
  4. How much doctrinal unity you need to partner with someone depends on what you are partnering with them for.
  5. The only flaws that can enslave you are the ones that you are blind to. Ps. 19
  6. Before we can answer “Who am I?” we must first ask, “Whom or what do I love?” and “Who loves me?”
  7. Our problem is not so much the unanswered questions but the unquestioned answers out there.
  8. Everyone in the world is an evangelist. Even telling someone they can’t proselytise is a form of proselytising.
  9. What is Religion? A set of beliefs that explain what life is all about, who we are and how we should spend our time.
  10. Both secularism and devout faith are growing. What’s going away is the mushy middle of religiosity.
  11. Having a sense of being loved deeply by Christ allows us to forgive when someone wrongs us because we can afford to be generous.
  12. Don’t let success go to your head. Don’t let failure go to your heart.
  13. What does your life say to others about what you believe?
  14. Does the quality of your work become the measure of your worth?
  15. It is one thing to believe in God but it is quite another thing to trust God.
  16. We are always the last to see our own self-absorption.
  17. In the presence of beauty you cease to be the hero in your own story. It is no longer all about you.
  18. Most leading urbanologists estimate that by 2050 the number of people living in cities will exceed 75% worldwide. The Church has not moved into cities at the same rate.
  19. True gospel-humility means I stop connecting every experience, every conversation, with myself.
  20. Living the mission of Jesus means taking your faith into your work and your life and praying for it to change people’s hearts toward God.
  21. This is an important conversation that doesn’t have any easy answers. Good article.
    • Referencing
      • The Atlantic
        • Low-Income Communities Are Struggling to Support Churches
  22. The most fulfilling life you can have? Stop living to fulfill your own desires and start living to fulfill the needs of your neighbor.
  23. If you care about social justice, you’ll be concerned with those on the margins of society not those with the most social media followers.
  24. If you have money, power, and status today, it is largely due to the century and place in which you were born, to your talents and capacities and health, none of which you earned. In short, all your resources are in the end the gift of God.
  25. Jesus did not abandon us despite all his own suffering. Do you think he would abandon you now in the midst of yours?
  26. Lack of cultural awareness leads to distorted Christian living.
  27. Condemning others while also excusing ourselves is what allows us to hang onto both our self-righteousness AND our sin.
  28. The number one lie Satan tells us is that we can prove ourselves.
  29. “To be loved but not known is superficial. To be known and not loved is our great fear — but to be known and loved, that transforms you.” – @timkellernyc
  30. Our beliefs are formed not only through reason and argument but also through social conditioning. The only way, therefore, to be as thoughtful, balanced, and unprejudiced as possible is to be highly aware of your cultural biases. Are you aware where your beliefs come from?
  31. The more you see your own flaws and sins, the more precious, electrifying, and amazing God’s grace appears to you.
  32. Jesus came not to accrue power. He came to give power up.

Damon Thompson- Faith for a Kairos moment

  1. Go to the Book of Mark Chapter 10
    • Mark – Chapter 10 – Verse 46 thru 52

      • And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
      • And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
      • And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
      • And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
      • And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
      • And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
      • And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
  2. There are two types of time
    • Chronos and Kairos
      • Chronos
        • Chronos (/ˈkroʊnɒs/; Greek: Χρόνος, “time”, pronounced [kʰrónos], also transliterated as Khronos or Latinised as Chronus) is the personification of Time in pre-Socratic philosophy and later literature. Chronos governed linear, chronological time
      • Kairos
        • The other Greek word for time is kairos, meaning the indeterminate moment that is right for something to occur.
  1. Chronos
    • We get the word chronology
  2.  Kairos
    • Glory of God come into a moment
    • Man’s time get so consumed with what God wants to do in the moment
  3. God’s time
    • Jesus made himself manifest in the world when the fullness of time has come ( Galatians 4:4 )
    • However a Kairos time coming upon the earth does not mean everybody gets the benefit of it
    • To benefit from it
      • Discernment
      • And, faith
  4. How can I release faith in a Kairos Moment
  5. Anytime I am looking at the prophetic I look at it from three different dimensions [ Segment :- 5th t0 7th minute ]
    • What is it
    • What can stop it
    • And, how I do get to it
  6. Frustration
    • Some of the most frustrated people in the world are people who were giving prophetic opportunities, but they did not know how to seize
    • They did not how to yield
    • Not seeing prophetic manifestation
  7. Jesus Introduction
    • Synoptic Gospel
    • In the beginning was the Word
  8. Pedigree without vision can cost you purpose
  9. God’s plan has always been his presence [ Segment 30 minutes ]
  10. Jericho
    • Joshua 6:26
      • Then Joshua made them take an oath at that time, saying, “Cursed before the LORD is the man who rises up and builds this city Jericho; with the loss of his firstborn he shall lay its foundation, and with the loss of his youngest son he shall set up its gates.”
    • Ahab ( 1st Kings 16:34 )
      • Ahab Reigns in Israel, Marries Jezebel ( Link )
        …Ahab also made the Asherah. Thus Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel than all the kings of Israel who were before him.
      • In his days Hiel the Bethelite built Jericho; he laid its foundations with the loss of Abiram his firstborn, and set up its gates with the loss of his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which He spoke by Joshua the son of Nun.
  11. Best Instruction you ever had, all the questions are Yes
  12. Persistency in Love
    • Without faith, it is impossible to please God  ( Hebrew 11:5-6  [ Link ])
      • By faith Enoch was taken up so that he did not see death. He could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.
        And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.
  13. Closing
    • Garments of praise
    • Peace for despair
    • I got to know God in the land of the living
    • I got to know God in a living land


Church in Society ( 2017-Oct )


Again, this is an area, I will rather not go.

Yet, it is one that stirs our conscience and thoughts.

And, that is reason enough to see what people are saying and why they are saying it.



We all have our own bias and depositions.

And, it is best to lay them bare ahead of time.

Most of my comments will be based on what I have heard from others prior to anything that I will cover in this post.

It is often useful to have some foundational predisposition as that lessens the opportunity to be swayed within each decision point.

Even better when commentators are not even speaking specifically on the new material.

Earlier Words

  1. Damon Thompson
    • Sometimes God places something in our heart, but unfortunately so much  of what has gone out in the Prophetic World was not undergirded in scripture
    • And, so I, Damon Thompson, need the foundation of Scripture
  2. Neil Ellis
    • This is a Church of matured faith
    • You have been preaching, but you were fearful of how the preaching will be accepted
    • Sometimes the Devil magnifies things and makes them appear more than they really are
    • Sometimes as a pastor what makes us press even though there is “Hell on the Outside” is that we are satisfied that we have the confidence of the people inside
    • Can the Lord trust you, and can the Bishop/Leadership depend on you?
    • Free your Spirit, but challenge your people
    • A faith that has not been tested, is a faith that can not be trusted
  3. Sonia Sotomayor, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
    • Sotomayor was asked to explain her remarks from a 2001 speech in which she said she agreed that “there is no objective stance but only a series of perspectives — no neutrality, no escape from choice in judging.”  She told the committee that, in every case, the two opposing parties view the facts from vastly different perspectives. “You can’t just throw up your hands and say I’m not going to rule,” she said. There is a choice in judging, which means “you have to rule.”


Here are some of the videos that I will later comment on.

Seated Under

Those in leadership do not always get to take a day off.

Not only does what they think matter, but also how they got there.

I have grown from listening in person or via youtube to the people listed above.

And, that makes me forever grateful.

Influencing Capital

The further we grow, the more influencing capital we personally have and have access to.

After long and hard battles our role will be examined; especially if our role is seen to have moved the needle towards an unexpected end.

Unfortunately it is not just our choice that is examined, but the totality of our live.

Circumference of Relationships

Relationships often covers so much space.

And, some of those spaces overlap and are not necessarily disjointed.

And, so even within a body, for instance Faith community, uniformity does not necessarily translate to conformity.

People sometimes reach different conclusions and they should be free to do so.

This is more so where there are personal relationships with those that are being discussed.


In Essentials Unity, In Nonessentials Liberty, In All Things Charity

Philip Schaff, the distinguished nineteenth-century church historian, calls the saying in our title “the watchword of Christian peacemakers” (History of the Christian Church, vol. 7, p. 650). Often attributed to great theologians such as Augustine, it comes from an otherwise undistinguished German Lutheran theologian of the early seventeenth century, Rupertus Meldenius. The phrase occurs in a tract on Christian unity written (circa 1627) during the Thirty Years War (1618–1648), a bloody time in European history in which religious tensions played a significant role.


Sola Scriptura

  1. Laws of Social Responsibility
    If ever you take your neighbor’s cloak in pledge, you shall return it to him before the sun goes down, for that is his only covering, and it is his cloak for his body; in what else shall he sleep? And if he cries to me, I will hear, for I am compassionate.
    You shall not curse God, nor curse a ruler of your people. ( Exodus 22:27-28 )
  2. Paul Before the Sanhedrin
    • But those standing nearby said, “How dare you insult the high priest of God!”
      “Brothers, Paul replied, “I was not aware that he was the high priest, for it is written: ‘Do not speak evil about the ruler of your people.’”
      ( Acts 23:4-5 )
  3. David, Saul, Jonathan, & Mephibosheth
    • And Mephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king. He had neither taken care of his feet nor trimmed his beard nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came back in safety. ( 2nd Samuel 19:24 )
    • He answered, “My lord, O king, my servant deceived me, for your servant said to him, ‘I will saddle a donkey for myself, that I may ride on it and go with the king.’ For your servant is lame. ( 2nd Samuel 19:26 )
    • He has slandered your servant to my lord the king. But my lord the king is like the angel of God; do therefore what seems good to you. ( 2nd Samuel 19:27 )
    • For all my father’s house were but men doomed to death before my lord the king, but you set your servant among those who eat at your table. What further right have I, then, to cry to the king?” ( 2nd Samuel 19:28 )
    • And the king said to him, “Why speak any more of your affairs? I have decided: you and Ziba shall divide the land.” ( 2nd Samuel 19:29 )
    • Mephibosheth said to the king, “Let him even take it all, since my lord the king has come safely to his own house.” ( 2nd Samuel 19:30 )


In summary I find myself always returning to a couple of words :-

  1. Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad
    • Allah’s hand of protection is with the maintenance of unity, you should beware of division.
    • The one isolated from the group is a prey to Satan, just as the one isolated from the flock is a prey to the wolves
    • You can not base a spiritual life on suspiciousness, cursing and allocating blame.
  2. Abraham Lincoln
    • I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”


Love never fails … for we know in part and we prophesy in part.
