Union of The Spirit and The Bride

THE AGENT

WE CAME TO a tent camp I had never seen before and sat down in a nearby stretch of sand. I noticed a man making his way through the camp to one of the tents. He entered it and stayed inside for some time before emerging with two others, a middle-aged man and woman. I presumed them to be husband and wife. There, by the tent, they spoke into the nightfall.

“That,” said the teacher, “is an agent. He represents a man and woman from one of the other camps. His mission is to see if a marriage can be arranged between the son of those who sent him and the daughter of those to whom he was sent. It happened the same way in ancient times. Abraham sent his servant to a foreign land to find a bride for his son Isaac. So the servant embarked on the journey, bringing with him Abraham’s treasures as gifts for the bride. He ended up meeting the young woman Rebekah. After saying yes to the proposal of marriage, Rebekah embarked with the man on a journey back to the tents of Abraham where she would, for the first time, see Isaac face-to-face.”

“There’s a mystery there,” I said.

“Yes,” said the teacher. “Abraham offered up Isaac as a sacrifice. Not long after that comes the account of Isaac’s bride. To what would that correspond?”

“The offering of Isaac foreshadows the sacrifice of Messiah. So after Messiah’s sacrifice . . . comes the search for the bride . . . the bride is the church . . . each of us.”

“And whose mission then begins?” he asked. “Who is sent to the bride?”

“The Spirit of God,” I said. “The Spirit’s mission is especially to the bride.”
“Yes. The Spirit is the Agent, the Agent of the Father, the Agent of God. And the Spirit comes to the bride and shares with her of the Father and the Son . . . and draws her to them. And the Spirit comes bearing gifts from the Father to the bride, the gifts of the Spirit. And the Spirit leads the bride on a journey to the Son and the Father. And do you know what the name of Abraham’s servant was? Eliezer. And do you know what Eliezer means? It means my God is the helper. And what is the Spirit called? The Helper. So as real and as present as the servant was to Rebekah in her journey, just as real and present is the Servant of the Father, the Spirit, in your journey. So you’re never alone, not one moment of your life. You have one beside you, who is the Agent of God . . . For alongside you in your journey . . . is God, your Helper.”

The Mission: Live today in the awareness that you are not alone. God Himself dwells with you in the Spirit. Live as one with whom He is present.

The Isaac Rebekah Wedding Mystery I–III

Marriage Of The Minds

The marriage of the minds is where we begin to understand true love and predestination. The marriage that we as Christians understand is not of this world. The marriage that I am referring to is between Jesus and His bride. This marriage may not yet be seen but is real and just might possibly be taking place, as the times that we live in are telling us. To be aware of this marriage and union between the two is the secret to decoding the last book of the Bible, the Revelation.

Considering the marriage that must take place in order for all things to be fulfilled according to God’s purpose is to be in tune with the mind of God. Thinking of a marriage that is bigger than the world is where we begin to comprehend the mind of God. If Jesus were to come again a second time, how might we expect that marriage to take place. I believe that by seeking Him out, all might discover Jesus in pure and absolute truth.

The marriage of the mind is how we might expect to become a part of this union. No matter where we are in the world, God is omnipotent and omniscient. In the end of times this will be the key to understanding a second coming of Christ and the Holy Spirit of God.

To See the Tree of Life…The Face of God…A Hidden Realm

The Face of God

To attempt to answer the question of “Why do bad things happen?” Sin, whether it is direct or indirect, is the answer for why bad things happen in the world. It is hard to understand why a God who loves us so much would allow us to suffer from indirect sin, but we must be aware that we are born into it however you choose to look at it. We will face battles in life, but faith stands over it all, and knowing that all we see around us is not all that exist is where we find closure and understanding.

Jesus did not ever give a philosophical answer to the problem of pain, but he did give an existential answer. Although we do not know why a particular bad thing occurs, we can learn how God feels about it. Jesus gives God a face, and that face is streaked with tears.

In Jesus, God presents a face. Anyone who wonders about the suffering and groaning on this planet need only to take a look at his face. James, Peter, and John had followed Jesus long enough for his facial expressions to be permanently etched on their minds. By watching Jesus’ expressions to a hemorrhaging woman, a grieving centurion, a widow’s dead son, and epileptic boy, and old blind man, they learned how God felt about suffering.

To know how Jesus felt about family members who die, we can begin to understand by Jesus weeping after his friend, Lazarus, died. This gives us an idea of how God feels about those close to us, our blood, who die.

 

We can also see how Jesus felt when he looked out over Jerusalem and realized the fate awaiting that fabled city. He sighed at one point in Matthew 23:37, using an image he must have drawn from rural Galilee. “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.”

After the fire races through a barn, a farmer may find the corpses of scorched hens, wings outstretched, lying on the barn floor. The mother has protected them from the fire, sacrificing her own life in the process. That is what Jesus yearned for—to take the punishment vicariously for his people.

When Jesus Christ faced pain, he responded just as anyone else does. He did not pray in the garden, “O Lord, I am so grateful that you have chosen me to suffer on your behalf. I rejoice in the privilege!” No, he experienced sorrow, fear, abandonment, and something approaching desperation. “If it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.” And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

In the words of Isaiah 52–53, we see a vivid account written before Jesus’ birth.

Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He grew up like a tender shoot, and like a root out of parched ground; He has not stately form or majesty that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.

 

He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; And like one from who men hide their face, He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely, our grief He himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall upon Him. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, so He did not open His mouth…His grave was assigned with wicked men, yet He was with a rich man in His death, because He had done no violence, nor was there any deceit in His mouth. But the Lord was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, and the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand. As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will allot Him a portion with the great, and He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors.

 

Isaiah 53:1–7

Just as the tragedy of Good Friday was transformed into the triumph of Easter Sunday, one day all war, all violence, all injustices, all sadness will likewise be transformed. Then and only then will we be able to say, “O death where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” Only then will the urgent question form the Old Testament resolve. Do we matter? Does God care? We must live in faith, aware that those final answers will lack a final answer until that decisive day when God does act spectacularly in Jesus’ second coming.

Matthew 13:44-46-The Message

44 “God’s kingdom is like a treasure hidden in a field for years and then accidentally found by a trespasser. The finder is ecstatic—what a find!—and proceeds to sell everything he owns to raise money and buy that field.

 

THE WAY TO THE MOUNTAINTOP

IT WAS ALMOST sundown. We were standing at the bottom of a high mountain. But the ascent was very gradual as the mountain was spread out over a vast area and connected to other mountains, part of a chain. At its base were the beginnings of several mountain paths, each diverging from the others.

“At the top of this mountain,” said the teacher, “is a flat, white, circular stone. Find it. When you get there, you’ll be standing on the summit. Find that stone, and then return to me.”

“But which of the paths do I take?” I asked.

“That’s the challenge,” he said. “I’ll be waiting here until you return.”

So I chose one of the many paths and began following it. It wasn’t long before the sky grew dark, and it became apparent that I was on the wrong path. I chose another, and another, until finally I realized I was heading downward. At that point I began shouting in the dark for the teacher. He shouted back. Following his voice, I made my way back to him at the base.

“So,” said the teacher, “I imagine you didn’t get there.”

“How could I have?” I replied. “I didn’t know which path to take.”

“You didn’t have to know,” he said. “You didn’t have to know anything . . . except one thing. You were too focused on which path to take, but that wasn’t the key. Remember when I shared with you about the Hebrew word aliyah? Had you applied that here, you would have succeeded. The key was the direction . . . up. The white stone was at the pinnacle. All you had to do was to choose the higher path, continuously. And if the path stopped ascending, then you choose the higher ground. And it would make no difference where you started from or on which side of the mountain. If you just followed this simple law, it would have led to the exact place at the pinnacle. Don’t forget this. It’s one of the most important secrets in your walk with God.

The pinnacle of the mountain represents God’s calling on your life, His specific will and exact purpose and plan for your life. How do you get there? You don’t have to know where it is. All you have to do is continually ascend, continually choose the higher path, the higher ground, the higher footstep. And no matter where you started from and no matter where you are now, you will end up in the exact, specific, appointed, and perfect will of God, at the summit, the pinnacle of God’s purposes for your life.”

The Mission: Today, focus only on one course, one path, one journey, one destination, and one direction—up. Aim to go higher with every step.

The Meticulous Work of Angels…Comprehension of A Heavenly Home…

Listening to the Spirit by John David Harwood

To have our ears opened is essential to God leading us into ways of righteousness. Without righteousness what do we have? We have the desires of our own fleshly mind at hand, which lead into ways of wickedness and into darkness.

Walking without listening to God is the same as walking blind (key note: even having eyes that can see the worldly realm…sometimes those that appear to be blind from a worldly standpoint can grasp the existence of Heaven…they can see what the world cannot…they can also feel what the masses cannot…)  God is in control of what we see and what we hear if we sincerely trust in Him. But He also knows every man’s heart and cannot be fooled. He is all knowing. By knowing that his love is poured out onto us who seek Him, we are able to have closure to each and every problem that may arise. His patient love endures forever. To know that He loves you and that He has so much love that He sent His only Son as a living sacrifice in order that man could understand is enough.

After the death and resurrection of Christ, there is no other need of any sacrifice. We have been forgiven. Why would anyone choose not to acknowledge this truth? To understand Christ is to understand that each person has an equal opportunity and choice to obtain full comprehension of the scriptures. Why would anyone go to the length as to say that there is any agenda or false truth behind the Bible. Why was religion created?

Religion was created in order to rationalize behavior. It is a simple answer, and no matter what anyone ever says, it is the everlasting truth. For ages, people have created their own sets of standards in regards to their lifestyle, all cultures.

 

What does the resurrection mean in the Bible? To me, it refers to the resurrection of those who have been lost to sin. Those whose lives are lost and have no direction. What is the reason for having no meaning or direction? I believe that it is not knowing who Christ is or was. Not understanding what living is all about. Living in self-ambition versus living as a humble servant. Not having understanding of the truth of the Spirit.

Also, being aware of theories and ideas of ways to destroy and tear down the Bible is important. Throughout history, people have attempted to make up excuses or come up with explanations for things they cannot understand. One point to remember is that we cannot understand God completely because we were created by Him. He is so big that we cannot ever fully grasp the extent of His power.

We are his prize and He is our reward. Remember that those who attempt to destroy the truth are lost and without God. They have made a choice to not seek Him because I can assure you that if you truly give it time, your eyes will be opened.

In the blink of an eye a new world will be revealed to you by spending just a little time attempting getting to know Him. I have never felt like God asks for much but to seek and discover the treasures of his creation. He wants us to be able to enjoy the world to the fullest and understand the magnitude of the kingdom of God.

 

It is a kingdom that is eternal, and one simple fact is that our life here on earth is not the end. Make your treasures in heaven and not on earth.

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods, which God has created to be gratefully shared by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer.

1 Timothy 4:1–5

Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

 

1 Corinthians 15:50–58

Thus says the Lord, your Creator…And He who formed you…”Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.

Isaiah 43:1–3

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace…He made known to us the mystery of His will according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth…In Him also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation— having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise…that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and a revelation

in the knowledge of Him.

Ephesians 1:7, 9–10, 13, 17

A jealous and avenging God is the Lord; The Lord is avenging and wrathful. The Lord takes vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserves wrath for His enemies. The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, And the Lord will by no means leave the guilty unpunished. In whirlwind and storm is His way, And clouds are the dust beneath His feet.

Nahum 1:2–3

He who separates himself seeks his own desire, He quarrels against all sound wisdom. A fool does not delight in understanding, But only in revealing his own mind. When a wicked man comes, contempt also comes, And with dishonor comes reproach. The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

Proverbs 18:1–4

What is desirable in a man is his kindness, And it is better to be a poor man than a liar. The fear of the Lord leads to life, So that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.

Proverbs 19:22–23

HEAVEN’S LOOM

THE TEACHER TOOK me inside one of the tent camps of the desert dwellers. No one seemed to mind. We sat down beside a woman who was working on a loom made of sticks and strings. Into the loom she wove threads of red, black, purple, and yellow into a pattern that appeared both ancient and elaborate.

“Notice how carefully she goes about her weaving,” he said, “how meticulously she works . . . how intricate the pattern.”

We continued to watch as more and more of the pattern emerged.

“When judgment came on Israel in 586 BC, it seemed as if the plans God had for the Jewish people were finished. The Promised Land was in ruins and God’s people in exile. It was then that God gave this word to His fallen and broken people: ‘I know the plans I have for you, plans of shalom and not of calamity, to give you a future and a hope.’”

“A beautiful word,” I said. “After everything, after all their failures and sins, and after all their calamities, it must have been a beautiful thing for them to hear.”

“Yes,” said the teacher. “Even though He should have been finished with them, He was not finished. His love was greater.”

“Is there a reason,” I asked, “that you’re telling me this as we watch the woman weave?”

“There is,” he said. “You wouldn’t see it in the translation, but in the original language is a Hebrew word that appears in one form or another no less than three times in that promise. The word is makhashabah. It’s translated as plan. But it means much more than plan. Makhashabah speaks of the careful, skillful, intricate weaving of a fabric. Thus it could be translated as, ‘I know the meticulously woven purposes that I am skillfully, carefully, and intricately weaving together for your future.’

You see, God is the Master Weaver, not only of the cosmos but of the lives of His children. And the plans He has for your life are not only good and beautiful, but intricately woven plans, already worked out. And He will take every thread of your life . . . every joy, every mistake, every failing, every victory, every defeat, every gain, every loss, every regret, every wound, and every question—every thread—and will knit them all together carefully, skillfully, and meticulously to become a perfect tapestry of woven love.”
The Mission: Consider how God has woven the threads of your life together for good. Take confidence that with the present threads, He will do the same.

Jeremiah 29:11; Ephesians 1:4; 2 Timothy 1:9

I Know the Plans

THE ANGELIC MEASURING ROD

HE BROUGHT ME into the Chamber of Measures and to a tall wooden cabinet attached to the wall in front of which we both stood. It had to be at least eight feet high.

“Open it,” said the teacher. So I did. Inside the cabinet, leaning against its back wall, were several rod-like objects almost as tall as the cabinet itself. At the bottom of the cabinet were cords and ropes of various lengths.

“Measuring rods,” he said, “and measuring lines. They were used as rulers and tape measures are used today.”

He removed one of them and gave it to me to hold.

“But they weren’t only used by men,” he said. “They were used by angels. The prophets Ezekiel and Zechariah each saw an angel holding a measuring rod or line in his hand. In each case, the angel with the measuring vessel was a sign concerning God’s future prophetic purposes, namely, the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple. But God’s prophetic purposes not only require building materials but events of human history. For Jerusalem to be rebuilt, human events had to conform to the measurements of angels.”
“And in modern times,” I said, “Israel was restored again, according to the biblical prophecy.”

“Yes,” said the teacher. “And in order for those prophecies to come true, world history and the lives and actions of individuals around the world had to all work together—acting, reacting, and interacting one upon the other at the exact place and time—for the plans of God and the measurements of angels to be fulfilled. You see, there exists a plan of precise measurements not only for the construction of temples but for human history and for your life. And even a world that wars against His purposes will, in the end, conform to the angelic measurements. He will use all things of this world and of its history—the good, the bad, the godly, and the ungodly—to bring about the fulfillment of His purposes.

So whenever things appear out of control and you’re tempted to fear, be at peace. Just remember this rod. It is a sign to you that, in the end, every evil will be overcome, every purpose of God will be fulfilled, the good will prevail, and the history of this world, and of our lives, will conform to the plans of heaven . . . and to the precise dimensions set forth by the angelic measuring rod.”

The Mission: Take the Word of God today and follow its exact measurements and specifications and you will walk into the exact dimensions of God’s will for your life.

The Hidden Faces of God

THE SECRET NAME OF GOD

WE SAT ON the bottom ledge of my window looking out at the star-filled night.

“God has a name,” said the teacher, “a name that has to do with you, and you only, a secret name that only you know the meaning of.”

“I don’t understand.”

“When Jacob wrestled with God, God asked him for his name. And when he spoke it, God changed his name from Jacob to Israel. But did you know that Jacob also asked God for His Name that night?”

“And what was the answer?”

“It doesn’t say…

But soon after the encounter, Jacob would reveal the Name of God. He would build an altar and call it El Elohai Yisrael. El Elohai Yisrael means God, the God of Israel. What was he saying?”

“Israel was Jacob’s own name. So for Jacob to call Him ‘the God of Israel’ is the same as naming Him ‘the God of me. ”

“Exactly. And throughout the Scriptures, God would refer Himself as the God of Israel. You see, it is God’s will to join His Name to the name of His people. And the Scriptures say that if you’re born again, you are also Israel. So you must also join your name to the Name of God. It means it’s not enough to call Him God. You must give Him a new name.”

“How can I give God a name?”

“He must become the God of you, the God of . . .” he paused, “your name.

The one named John must know Him as the God of John. The one named Mary must know Him as the God of Mary. It is His will that your name be in His Name and that His Name be joined to yours, just as His life is joined to your life and His identity to your identity. His secret Name is as sacred as all His other Names. It means He’s the God of your existence, your life, the God of your past, the God of your needs, the God of your wounds, the God of your heart. It means He’s the God of you and and all you are . . . So it is the Name that only you and He fully know the meaning of. So Jacob asked God for His Name and then discovered it. And for those who truly know Him, this is the name they too discovered . . . the sacred Name: the God of you.”

The teacher left my room. I was now alone, gazing out the window at the star-filled sky and pondering the love of the One who bore a secret Name . . . the God of me.

The Mission: Speak God’s secret name—the God of you, the God of your name. Ponder what that means: He’s the God of all you are and has chosen your name in His.

Genesis 32:29–33:20; Psalm 18:2; Isaiah 48:1

THE FACES OF GOD

IT WAS A sunny day. We were standing next to a pool of water formed of the desert rains. I was looking at my reflection in the water when I noticed the reflection of another. It was the face of the teacher. He was standing over my shoulder.

“Imagine,” he said, as I watched him speak through the waters, “imagine seeing the face of God. In Hebrew the word for face is panim. Do you notice anything about it?”

“It has im at the end,” I said. “So that would make it plural?”

“It would,” he said. “So the word face is not really face but faces. So to speak of the face of God in Hebrew is to speak of the faces of God. And what is a face? It’s not the essence of the person or being, but the appearance. It’s how you know and recognize another. And how do you see the face of God? By the panim . . . through His many faces.

You see them in His blessings, in His provisions, in every good thing that has blessed your life, in the love He wove into those who once cared for you, in every kindness shown to you in your time of need, in every good given to you by His people. In their loving you, He was loving you. In their helping you, it was He who was helping you. And in their encouragements, it was He who was encouraging you. In their panim, in their faces, was the panim, the face of God.

And as Mary Magdalene looked into the face of God but didn’t realize it was His face, so too in your life you have looked into His face and not realized it was the face of God. But if you look, you’ll see it. For ‘blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.’ Look always for the good, for the holy, and the beautiful, and you’ll find, and you’ll see the face of God.”

He turned from the waters. I did likewise. We were now face-to-face.

“And one more thing,” he said. “When you allow your life to be used as a vessel of His love and your heart to be moved by His Spirit, then when people look at you, they will see the face of God. Now look back at the waters. Do you know what you’re looking at?”

“What?”

“A face,” he said. “You’re looking at . . . one of the faces of God.”

The Mission: Today make it your aim to see the faces of God in all their appearances. And be one of them.

The Sweetest Euphoria…Is This What We Expect in Heaven?

“THE MYSTERY OF THE BRIDE”

ON OUR JOURNEY to the city, we stopped on a nearby hill.

“Look,” said the teacher, pointing to an event at the city’s edge.

“It looks like a wedding,” I replied, “or the preparation for a wedding.” The bride, in a white gown, was standing in a garden with her bridesmaids.

“You’re watching a cosmic mystery, the shadow of a mystery. Existence,” he said, “is a love story . . . or was meant to be a love story. The bride is a picture of what we each were created to be.”

“I don’t understand.”

“We were each created to be the bride. That’s why we can never be complete in ourselves. That’s why, deep down, in the center of our being, in the deepest part of our heart, we seek to be filled. For the bride is made to be married. So we can never find our completion until we are joined to Him who is beyond us. And that is why we go through our lives trying to join ourselves . . .”

“Join ourselves to what?”

“To that which we think will fill the longing of our hearts—to people, success, possessions, achievements, money, comfort, acceptance, beauty, romance, family, power, a movement, a goal, and any multitude of things. For the bride was created to be married, and she can never rest until she is.”

“So none of those things can ever work?”

“No. Because none of those things are the Bridegroom.”

“And who is the Bridegroom?”

“The Bridegroom is God, the One for whom we were created.”
“So we have to find Him.”

“More than that,” he said. “A bride doesn’t just find the Bridegroom; she marries Him. So it’s not enough to find God; you must marry Him.”

“Marry God? How?”

“By joining every part of your life and being—your deepest parts, your heart, your soul, your wounds, your longings, your desires, everything—to God. Only then can you be complete. Only then can your deepest needs and longings be fulfilled. For the mystery of our hearts is the mystery of the bride. And the bride can only find her completion in the Bridegroom. And the Bridegroom of our souls . . . is God.”

The Mission: Put away anything that substitutes for His presence, and join all that you are, your deepest parts, to your Bridegroom.

Watching From Above…

Eye of GodTruth Revealed By God

Chapter: God Who Sees Me (Pages 146-148)

READ Revelation 21:7. He who overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son (NASB).

READ Philippians 2:5-11. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though, He was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and (Key) “died a criminal’s death on a cross.” Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (J.

READ John 14:1-3. “Don’t let your hearts be troubled in. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going” (J. NLT).

 

READ Revelation 9:7-11. The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. They had what looked like gold crowns on their heads, and their faces looked like human faces. They had hair like women’s hair and teeth like the teeth of a lion. They wore armor made of iron, and their wings roared like an army of chariots rushing into battle. They had tails that stung like scorpions, and for five months they had the power to torment people. Their king is the angel from the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon- the Destroyer (J. NLT).

We know that Jesus did not regard Himself as God, but humbled Himself to become fully human. We know that Jesus did not come into the world the first time to judge the world, but rather to save the world. However, during the Second Coming, we see that Jesus executes full judgment and saves those who have remained faithful to the end. We read, “He who overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be my son.” We should know that during the time of persecution of the church, as the body of Jesus Christ, we shall endure many things. There will be deceit, lying, betrayal, false prophets, and false leaders. We are to ensure that we do not fall into a trap laid out before us to be confused or get off track. We must remain true to God. How do we know

who to trust and to follow? We will know Jesus, and He will be our safety and clarity as to all matters. He knows the ways of the devil and can teach us how to overcome the spiritual battles, which specifically are those of the mind. This is why it is essential to seek out a deeper understanding of what God needs from us as one unified body. For in that one body and home, there is room for all of those who seek Christ and believe in His name.

You can also think about it like this: God is forming a body into a state of beauty and per- fection. This body will be our salvation and our example. The reason that I referenced the scripture from revelation 9 is to remind everyone of what is to take place and may already be taking place. The angel of the bottomless pit is under God’s control and will accomplish God’s will. This is why we must find Jesus and not ignore prophecy. We need peace of mind and we need sound truth.

READ Revelation 7:10-12. …and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped God, saying, “Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” (NASB)

For in this new creation, there will no longer be any suffering, heartache, or mourning. For in one day, God will rescue all His people and there will be shouts of joy to the heavens. We will no longer wait, but we will see His majesty. And the New Holy City will be marvelous with all of the glory of God shining in full brilliance. The city will be filled with vast amounts of oaks of righteousness and trees that will last for many years. Fear will leave and instead, praise will be filling the streets and sung out by the voices of all

the people (Music that takes us to another level from all Tribes of the Earth…) The Lamb will be the center of it all and the four living creatures will be there along with the elders rejoicing and singing psalms of praise. There will be wisdom like there has never been and all will reign with God eternally.

Remember to not be anxious for anything, for God is in control of all things created. Be courageous and full of confidence that God will rescue you from whatever you might face. God will always take vengeance upon his foes and save His people. God will create an everlasting pathway for His people and an entrance into the New Jerusalem. There will be no evil that will walk upon this Highway of Holiness (Key: Like a perfect stream of water flowing into the sea of Glass). The gate for the sheep will be protected by all of the Holy angels. God will guard this path with all of His might and perfect those that walk in the light. Those that follow this path will discover their inner divinity and become strong branches of God’s tree of life. The memorial of God (Fountains of Living Water) will be an everlasting sign that shall not be dismayed or ruined. It will always remain, along with those who abide by God’s commandments and desires. God’s promise of a new Holy City will be fulfilled.

 

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Righteous One

 

READ Isaiah 44:6-8:

Thus saith the Lord the king of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; beside me there is no God. And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them. Fear ye not, nei- ther be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any. (Concordance Bible)

 

READ Isaiah 32:1-4

See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. The fearful heart will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. (NIV)

The Ancient of Days proclaims all truth and pronounces all wisdom. God is very jealous of those who worship false idols and gods. God does not take kindly towards those who worship false gods because they cause harm upon God’s people. They cause confusion and misdirection as opposed to clarity and focus. Any god that causes for attention away from Jesus is evil in its own way. No matter how peaceful they may seem, they are not seeking the truth and serving God. In most cases, this worship of false gods leads to gloom and doom. We do not want to be in the darkness, but in the light—the true light that comes from Christ. We do not want to see days of vengeance and judgment, but days of light and redemption. We want to see the truth come into existence and create a new heaven and a new earth. Seek to find God, and to have Him renew your life. We all must find God along our own personal journeys, and we are to worship God as a way of life. Our worship must help to transform and save lives. We want our tongues to be sharp swords that do away with evil and promote life into eternity. God gives Liberty. True liberty derives from Him, and anyone that tells you otherwise is leading you astray. There are many false gods that enslave you and set traps for you to fall into. Being a ser- vant of God is what we are meant to be. The key here is to not be enslaved by evil, but rather be a servant of righteousness. The righteousness that comes from heaven is that which helps us obtain long life and gives us wisdom. It is important to bear the wisdom that helps one to discern truth from deceit. Do not let yourself be deceived in any way, for the Devil is very sly in his tactics to fool you and mislead you (Who did you expect to reveal the identity of this entity described in the Final Book of the Bible-Revelation?). Run the race for God. Charge and lead the way for God to reign upon the Earth. Help change the world and do away with the evil that has enslaved so many. Do not be afraid to share your personal truth with others by reflecting on your own. Who knows who might be hearing your words as you write them? You may be unknowingly ministering to angels and humans. This is what the Bible talks about: knowing that you are making a difference is key to living a fulfilling life. Living for God is ful- filling; changing the world for God is rewarding.
