Isaiah 40:30-31
30 “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Read Isaiah 40

*The Book of Isaiah is basically Prophetic and full of God’s Promises!

Pope Francis Continues Push For One World Religion

Whatever one can say today about “Francis”, it is quite obvious that he does not care about Biblical Theology! To my mind today’s Papal Catholicism is adrift and really just full of modernity & postmodernity. It’s time to just jump-ship for true Catholic Christians, as we can see with the battle between Traditional Catholics and this “Jesuit Pope”! Sad, very sad, for there have been some past Jesuit Catholic theolog’s that were true seekers in some aspect of biblical theology, but they are gone today generally for the most part (even old Joseph Fitzmyter, S.J., died 24 Dec. 2016) ; Of course in my opinion. I am reminded of the great Hans Urs Von Balthasar, who was a one time Jesuit, but left it, and went his own way… creating his own version of a ‘Theological Aesthetics’. And was long friends with Karl Barth.

Re-Post: Richard Muller’s Dictionary of Latin and Greek Theological Terms… Mystical Union (uni mystica).

uni mystica (mystical union)
September 30, 2010

unio mystica sive praesentia gratiae tantum: mystical union or union by the presence of grace alone; i.e. a union made possible and maintained by grace rather than by the interrelation of essences or accidents. It goes beyond the uno essentialis (q.v.) of God or, more precisely, the Logos, with all things, since it is the grace and not merely of power and presence. It is, therefore, an unio specialis. Specifically, the term unio mystica, in the orthodox Lutheran and orthodox Reformed dogmatics, refers to the special union, founded on the indwelling grace of God in Christ, that occurs between God and the believer in and through regeneration. The union is mystical because it rests on the mystery of grace and of the unsearchable mercy of God; it can also be called unio spiritualis, spiritual union, since it is not physical or material but of the Spirit. The qualifying phrase, sive praesentia gratiae tantum, is added to the unio mystica in order to mark the difference between this union of believers with God and the hypostatic, or personal, union of the divine and human natures in Christ (unio personalis).

The orthodox therefore define the unio mystica as the spiritual conjunction (coniunctio spiritualis) of the Triune God with the believer in and following justification. It is substantial and graciously effective indwelling. In relation to the ordo salutis (q.v.), or the order of salvation, the Protestant scholastics distinguish the initial unitio (q.v.), or uniting, of the unio mystica, which is the basis for the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to be believer and which corresponds with the adoption (adoptio) of the believer, and the ongoing unio, or union, of the unio mystica, which continues concurrent with sanctification throughout the life of the believer.” (Richard A. Muller, Dictionary of Latin and Greek Theological Terms, Baker, 1985)
