Hi everybody. As the month of May ends, and we're now in the third month on the Lord's calendar, Aaron and I find ourselves being still very actively engaged by the Lord in several trending themes.
The first order of "business" is to share that our supply lines are still substantially impacted, and we know some of you are confronted with the same situation. If you are able and willing, please help us pay our bills. Timely PayPal donations, or even better yet, checks in the mail, have been what we have been dependent on. The Open Scroll is not a hobby, as you must know. It's our lives, in service, and we have no commercial revenue stream or side job activity to supplement this, and no cushion or reserve to fall back on. Those of you who are being inspired to serve with us by funding and prayer and whatever other ways the Lord directs - we thank you, knowing that the Lord's favor is manifest in this grace.

I've still been largely focused on the Great Pyramid study and video presentation, even though you wouldn't know it by watching my production output. I don't recall ever having to invest so much time and effort into a project with so little visible fruit after this long of a period, but this is a strange season in so many ways. I continue aggressively pursuing the project, trying to be faithful to follow along as the Lord directs, and it is evident to both Aaron and myself that He does continue to direct and encourage the effort by prospering it in familiar and very comforting and reassuring ways.
One of the ways the Lord provides for us is through the media we watch, and I have an example to share. Honestly, we have no idea what we're doing here, but the Lord does, and He is a steadfast guide. I have a DVR and cable, and I have several shows being recorded. Many of these I never end up watching, but at least the option is there for those I do need to watch. I've been recording the latest season of Dr Who. I'm way behind on the series, and while it makes sense to watch them in order, when it came time to watch some shows or videos a few nights ago, I just picked the most current episode. I had just spent the day reworking some of the Great Pyramid video scripting for and had made fresh observations, and this was all about to be validated. Doctor Who - Season 10 Episode 7: The Pyramid At The End Of The World. The show checked so many boxes for what was all quite fresh in mind. I had to pause it and call Aaron, not because this situation was rare or outstanding, but because this is how the Lord leads us to engage together, because we're a team like a pair of horses or oxen harnessed together. Aaron watched it a little later and then we compared notes. God is so good to us. I don't know how to say it better than that. He is just so good to us!
One of our windows into what the Lord is doing has to do with comments and emails, and these reveal that there's a spiritual war raging. We are used to being in the thick of the battle, and the warfare is intense. We want to encourage some of you to hang in there, to truly fight the good fight. Perfect love casts out fear, and this is found in the Lord Himself as you abide in Him. Those of you who are fighting for your sanity, there is a sound mind and a firm grip on reality to be gained in the struggle as you seek and find His ready help. Others of you, who are the enemy agents, you will have your reward, but victory is the Lord's - and the spoils go to those who are His!
That's our report, the update from this front line of the battlefield. We are so grateful for you warriors who stay in the fight, who we depend on to hold this ground together. We will share in each others reward, in due time.
Blessings in Y'shua!
Bob (and Aaron)
