the iceberg…

I know this  dates me  a bit…. but…  🙂 … I grew up with  Pogo  the comic strip  – it ran from 1948 till 1975… even after cartoonist Walt Kelly’s death in 1973…  little did I know back then that this cartoon held the answer for me… the iceberg... I heard this when I asked the Lord to give me a revelation of the iceberg….  “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

It was clear as a bell… Philip is the iceberg… I have met the enemy  and it is me.  It’s what I wrote about from Romans 7 back on May 16th….  “I know that nothing good dwells in me”   I know that  I am the iceberg. ..  that tip of the iceberg is what  others can see  of Philip the iceberg.  The tip… that’s the stuff that comes out of Philip… all that obvious sin stuff that people can see…. but… there is a whole lot of iceberg underneath what others can see.   “Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

The following paraphrase of my quote from Sparks the other day….. this  is the iceberg.     “What is the iceberg of the world?  It is pride….what is the root of pride? What is pride? It is selfhood come to life, risen up, active – it is me…  I need to be set free of…   ME!

My  “selfhood come to life”  is manifested in so many other ways than those obvious.ones… some illustrations tomorrow.
