“What is Life”?

What is life? Is it not as a vapor that appears for a short time only to vanish away?

Here but for only as a moment, as man measures time. Do we not get stuck in and hung up on the temporal? I conclude that most of us do so to some extent.

That extent can become the measuring rod for what we call life; and can end up defining life for us. However, God is Eternal in nature. He states that we are created in His likeness.

Why do we not see through His eyes of Eternal perspective naturally? Is it simply because we do not allow ourselves to be truly born again by His Spirit; born of both water and Spirit?

I seemed to have lost the ability to think in complexity or detail. I must keep all my thinking quite basic and simple or I get lost in process of life and can not arrive at a place of making a decision for a next step. I wait and pray. I have pondered what to write. I have waited for a deeper message from God. There seems to be no deeper message than the simple Gospel; which is my conclusion.

Why has much of the world made life so complex? Simple and basic seem to hold little value for many in this day. Does one have to muster up an expression of uniqueness to be heard, seen or acknowledged as someone having something of value to offer to their world? Why does that matter so much? We forget so readily that “in Christ” we all hold the same intrinsic value. Is Jesus’ sacrificial work on the Cross no longer enough that we readily dismiss it to assume way of making a life for our self that is self centered or inward focus oriented? Why allow someone else to define who I am? I am who God says that I am.

Contemporary thinking seems to elude my understanding at times. Is it possible to lose one’s mind’s ability to function in contemporary conventionality? Yes, I conclude; sometimes this may be so. Is that a good thing? It depends on the reason for the question. Sometimes God’s call eludes our defining of it.

What happens when my thinking no longer meshes with what comprises the here and now that I see with my eyes and how I feel about such? It is then when the surrounding becomes so overwhelming that I simply must close my eyes and sit in silence. It is then when there is nothing to do but be still and then the Words of God can become so very clear.

As I listen now to old Gospel songs and hymns their message is so clear, concise, and to the point. Yet the world has moved on in the greater sense. The message of such music composition no longer deliverers to the soul of many it’s original message. Why is this? These lyrics are ever so clear that I wonder how can anyone miss their message? Why do we always have to seek some new thing? Sometimes I gloss over in what becomes too familiar. It loses meaning. I sense that the church has been infiltrated by and for the greater sense, a religious spirit. Has such pervaded our thinking over many years of time and rocked us to sleep unto the Eternal perspective that should by nature, direct in the spirit of a child of God?

Heaven calls to me in this moment more than ever and it is not a place one goes to. Heaven can be already present if one is “in Christ”. Heaven can be, I believe a state of being and not necessarily a destination. Jesus’ work on the Cross is full and complete and lacking nothing. Heaven must be introduced into wherever we are in life and into whatever place we may find ourselves in. Yet “there” conflict can arise.

Why does so much of the world find itself so far from what God defines as Heaven? Heaven feels so natural to me at this moment and it is as though now it beckons me to come and merge. The Spirit and the bride do say “come” indeed.

What happens when one dies to this world in order to embrace “Heaven” that God’s Word addresses? Is this “going home? Is there “a letting go” process so that one may return “home”? The functionality of the mind can pose many questions when it’s integrity becomes compromised; be it due to disease or the need to be transformed rather than continuing to conform. Then walking by the Spirit is the only way through. Therein one comes into the peace that passes all understanding when it feels like I’m losing all then becomes one of “gaining all” as in the Presence of the Lord is true liberty discovered.

If one is truly born again from above or “in Christ” they are Eternal in spirit and never really die. They merely leave the body at some point. To leave an aging and suffering body’s constraints is immense relief is it not? So why is so much effort spent to “achieve” the worldly goods within this life? Why can’t we be and remain in a perspective of Eternity in walking out life; where a sense of nothingness can be engulfed in a fullness? When death is arrested then one is truly free. He who the Son sets free is free indeed.

Life begins in the Presence of Jesus and there all else gains reason to matter and remain. In Him all is made new. So then, what holds significance and preeminence with you and I?

I hope that what I have stated here today amidst my questionings, applies in some way. It is the first prompting I have received to resume writing. I hope to continue as long as have capacity within me to express what I sense is being asked of me; a day at a time.

“Behold a Great Mystery”

What perhaps is the greatest mystery to us in relationships?
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. In the creation story taken out of Genesis 1 we pick up at verse 26 where it was declared “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. So as we look into the face of another we are beholding the very image of God or if not then what? Contemplate this, and then ask yourself why it might be that we could perceive otherwise? There are perhaps two elements at work in opposition to one another; one temporal and the other Eternal? One being flesh and blood, the other Spirit. When a marriage breaks up it seems this likely begins with the couple failing to recognize one another being the express image of God to one another. Did the marriage commence from being based on such expressed image or did they simply marry one another’s attracting qualities? It is so imperative to be in love with Jesus first and foremost before you can truly love another person fully and behold in their face the face of your First Love. May you and I choose Eternity over the temporal in every decision in life especially when it comes to relationships.

At the cross Jesus restored God’s original creation plan in full. We simply have to believe and act upon it fully with our lives. Such transformation is the next move of God through those who will act in belief and trust. “A remnant that becomes pregnant with the Promise”. Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam (Jesus) became a life-giving spirit. But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual. The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.
(1 Corinthians 15:45-49) Be the express image of that which we truly and fully are!

“And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over all His creation. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.” And now God sees the same that He always has since the Cross. May we take on the same Eternal sight and perspective. Being fully in the image in which you were created is a sight to behold and to set one’s sight on.

“This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.” (Ephesians 5:32) ESV)

“And I share with you A Great Mystery”

Have you ever had God speak to you by trying to show you a solution to an apparent dilemma in your life? It may be addressing something or a situation in your life that is seemingly holding you back from taking that “one mere step” that would place you in the zone of “uncomfortable”. This may lead you to say “God, I just don’t know; I just have never attempted anything like this before. I have never ventured there. I feel more comfortable simply going with what I know I can do based upon what I have already done before”. The “risk factor” can strike fear into our “thinking out process” can it not?

Today I am bringing you into a story I am currently walking out; which is the divine story for which God has already written the script. I will attempt to as the natural storyteller that I am, to illustrate from my life something God wishes to illustrate to those desiring to follow out exploring what God calls “a great mystery”. This mystery pertains to Christ and His church and His recipe for this relationship. This is a story of intimate radical love. Yet it begins in a setting of doing business or the commerce of life. It begins with building a foundation of practical and sound wisdom centered in and from the heart of God. Until I began to write this piece today, I did not know to where I was to venture.

May I begin by illustrating from such an example where God has presented me with an invitation into an opportunity that seems to be of divine appointment. It appears that He has brought together circumstances and connections that require my exploration simply by faith that as I step into where vital pieces seem to be missing, believing that God can and will meet and fill those empty places with divine compliment which is to come from another person. I have been given repeated scriptural references to proceed and yet will I dare to simply take God at His Word? You see it is an “unknown” until I take the steps. This pertains to a business relationship potential where I am to take gifting and talent that God has placed within me which I have previously used in the market place in other ways in life. God has a new recipe for which my skill set and expertise offer key ingredients. The other person is in similar straights, over maxed in trying to achieve success with their expertise. So I and this other person met in a class we enrolled in months ago and now there seems to be an “intersection” forming which is awaiting “appointing action”.

I creatively write mainly around a focus of the home environment atmosphere and that of community and the enhancement thereof; as in bringing the two together. As a natural storyteller, I help bring people and their dreams together. Utilizing my talents and skills in an artistic flair for interior and exterior design, I serve as a unique expression to bridge the home with the market place. I elect to not go into much detail on this now. This is where I have begun to copy write to align people with their dreams of expression. I have a knack for bringing the mundane into beauty in practical but unusual expressions; an artist with an uncanny imagination to capture what people envision and to come up with a means to cater to their hopes and aspirations. I meet them, observe and assimilate their aspirations into a mosaic. I assimilate the history of the conduit through which a particular portion of the fulfillment of their dream is united with them in material form. This can be a piece of real estate or it can be another point of intersecting destination. Each contains it’s story which is matched to the client’s story in the making. I help to unite people with their dreams tangibly. What surmounts to a higher skill set in formation is being given definition through this story. I’ll introduce you to the other characters as we proceed.

So God is asking me to take the “conventional” of what I know into something “unconventional” in His unique design. So I find myself on a set of scales with the wisdom of God on one side and the “comforting going with what I know” on the other. I am at a “tipping point”. The wisdom of God vs. the wisdom of man. How many of us are at such a place right now?

“For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men”. (1 Corinthians 1:25)

“For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” (1 Corinthians 3:19)

So what discoveries need to be made here? There are four basic points I wish to cover. Today we will merely touch upon the first; which is the basis for humility.

First, we learn that truth is the basis for humility. It is easy for us to think we are better than we really are. It is also easy for us to conclude we are not good enough or don’t have what it takes. So we continually reciprocate the same old same, over again throughout life, constantly rotating in and out of failure and success yet never advancing. What does this illustrate? An absence of a standard of truth.
Arrogance is a distorted view of oneself and of reality; humility is seeing matters as they really are. What is God’s prescription here? It is, I believe to expose and to expound a mystery. In its broadest terms, a mystery is that truth which mortal men would never have imagined and which they are unable and unwilling to believe, even when it is revealed to them.

I conclude that God’s mysteries have four stages. So in order that we may give these adequate exploration I will leave off here today on this point. Yes, I will leave you hinged upon a mystery in hopes you will be back and wish to stay with me on this. This is a process without a timetable. It seems God is giving me this story that He wants shared; perhaps a greater story never yet told in this way. I am discovering and growing into a better version of myself as hopefully you will as well, as we proceed. I plan to take take this adventure in short daily dices so patience be with the process. Today’s piece has been merely a segway introduction into where are headed; so I’ll see you here next time.

Transitioning into True Transformation

I find myself at a truly pivotal moment in life where I am having to take a true assessment of what it actually means for me to fully answer the call of God, to present my body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is my spiritual worship. I am not to be “conformed” to this world’s, or society’s standards, or mindful perceptions thereof, but rather I am be “transformed” by the renewal of my mind, that by testing therein I may discern what is the will of God, what is the good and acceptable and perfect expression of my life reflecting fully conformity to the the death of my Lord Jesus Christ which He already fulfilled on the cross.

Everything thing by which I have defined “who I am” is being taken to the cross. There is much being put to death at this moment so that I may come fully into life perhaps unrecognizable as to “who I have been”. So I may not be writing as frequently, as life as “I have known it”, is being eclipsed. I will do what I can to continue to journal my progression, however I cannot say how that will show up. I am being moved into experiencing new places, with new people, and new parameters in which how, where, and with whom I do life shows up much differently.

Therefore, having a newly defined ministry unfolding by the mercy of God, I do not lose heart. It does not fit inside any box. There is no cookie cutter or mold by which to craft it. God is doing a new thing. I am merely saying “yes” as I step into a totally new and unknown frontier for me. I adhere to a radical presentation of the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Unfiltered, unadulterated, as I believe God is calling out and raising up an end time church that will be fully true in every sense to the radiant presence and character of our Lord Jesus Christ. A people of God that will fully declare with their lives that we are to be as a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that we may proclaim the excellencies of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light.
(1 Peter 2:9) God has always preserved such a remnant, kept in store, throughout all of history, I believe for this hour.

Even if this gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we are to proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:3-6 ESV)

However having this treasure in an earthly vessel of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. I may afflicted in many a way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body experiencing the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in my body and hence life. May such in my life seek to reflect this. For as one who lives in flesh is being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in this mortal flesh. So that death may be at work in me, but life rising forth in those that bear witness unto transformation.

Choosing to let go of the perception of life from solely the five senses and no longer rest in what is able to be physically seen and felt, may we take on the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

So may we do not lose heart. As the outer self is wasting away, the inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an “eternal weight of glory” beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:13-18)
That we may see and taste fully of the goodness of God. To so experience such, that “this” is what we sow into life in every breathing moment.

May I, by the grace of Jesus be freed from “the desire of” the following;
Being loved by others
Being promoted in life
Being honored
Being praised
Being preferred over any other
Being consulted

May I by the grace of Jesus be freed from the following:
The desire of being approved
From the fear of being humiliated
From the fear of being despised
From the fear of suffering rebukes
From the fear of being subjected to false statements
From the fear of being forgotten
From the fear of being ridiculed
From the fear of being wronged
From the fear of being suspected.

May the needs of others may be esteemed above what I feel that I need from life.
What I feel I need from life I will solely ask of God alone and from Him alone arrive at the fulfillment and satisfaction thereof.

There is but one name under heaven by which man may be freed from such and his name is Jesus.

My focus is to go after the 1 in 99; just as Jesus did and to forsake all else in order to attain the finishing of this race of life with fullness of joy, in knowing I have run well faithfully unto the very end, with a servant’s heart. My reason for living being “a harvest” that bears an eternal weight of glory “or knowing the goodness of the Father’s heart” to the extent this overshadows all the temporal in life. Wherein “what matters” is of “Eternal nature”.

I lay down at the foot of the Cross, “my own burdens” which are not mine to carry. Jesus already fulfilled such. That is why He came. May we no longer remain the same; but rather choose to fully bear “His Name”.

Cast upon the Waters, for Such a Time As This

As my body is afflicted in measures of pain and discomfort that exceed the threshold of any previous experience throughout this past night there have been periods of relief; yet the issues return with a fierce intensity. I have not grown any weaker and seem to leveled out in that respect so I can function around the house marginally this morning. It is rise and fall with the remainder again and again. It began just days ago and I trust so it shall end.

I am cast down repeatedly and, oh my body grows so weary, yet my soul stands strong in the grace Jesus brings me. He comes in the night when I want to give up. I can’t give up. He put me in a race. One I must finish and finish well. In the depth of my greatest point of weakness, His grace prevails.

When troubles come and troubles go, my heart burdened be;
Then, I be stilled and wait in the silence, as He sits with me.
.
He raises me up, so I can ascend the slopes to the mountain top;
which I shall reach. I have seen myself at the summit gazing over the land of the deep. The call to climb draws me out of my sleep.
Keep going, keep going; just one more step.

He destined and called me to walk these stormy seas. He raises me up, to walk on billows of tempest as the waves break over me.

I am strong, when I am carried on His shoulders
He raises me up to become more than I can imagine than I could ever be. This has been and is His word to me; Yes, and Amen to every word ever spoken.

The years the caterpillar ate away of my life shall be restored once again. He brought me out of my darkness and sin. Much forgiven, so with much I love. Love divine all loves excelling in me is indwelling and compels me to come to you again and again. That you may know the One, Jesus whom through it all began.

Am I delirious in my mind? Well maybe, but does it really matter? I trust someone receives these words. Someone must be in need of them. My Lord sends me and I am to go just as I am; such as I am. I will write as long as I can draw the breath to do so.

This is not about me. It is about Jesus and His church. Listen church and listen closely. He calls for a greater measure of faith to be stepped into. I am merely a messenger and He asks us to wake up. Waken out of our slumber. You have no idea what hangs in the balances right now. This is not a time to keep sitting on the fence. The fierceness and intensity of the pain I feel right now accents a fire and strength in my bones and surges into my body.
This why my affliction continues to wax and wane. Until into the fullness of the body of the One, we see one another as the Father sees the Son. I live the prayer of Jesus in John 17. There is no turning back for this one. I lay my life down. To the one who gave it all.

I turn to You, Jesus, I turn to You, Lord as I am reproved.
What else can I do, Jesus? Your rebuke is measured out in the greatest of love. The Love of loves!

For the faith to move ahead and to let go of the past!
All that holds my sails to the mast.
May “I” see me, as “You” see me.
In Your holy presence, it’s all that I can do is to give my all to be who You have called me to be; who You say that I am. This I declare. For with the heart through faith one is saved and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Then one’s walk aligns with the confession and declaration. I walk out the story of the Author and Finisher of my faith.

You alone are worthy. Alpha and Omega, First and Last
The Father of my heart, help me to keep turning to you. What else can I do?

There is a river of gladness from which Zion flows. Issued from Emmanual’s veins. Yes, “God with us” took all of our brokeness and pain and shame and bore it all for you and I. God for us; who can be against us?
We walk in forgiveness, all of our guilt erased. Receive it! Let go of what you are not. Lay hold of who God says that you are!

Undone by the mercy of Jesus and by His goodness.
This is the glory of His Presence!
In His glory restored and made whole again.

He holds me, He has me.
I’ve got Jesus and so how could I want more?

His goodness! Encompasses all; there is no more than that of Eternal Value to hold to.

Tested and and tried, I’ve tasted of Your grace, Jesus

I’m undone, I’m undone; in His Presence I’m undone. I’m overwhelmed; yes and very much so.

A race awaits to be run until the last song is sung. Grasp the for the next rung and know you have begun. May you fare well my friends!

Loving unto Eternity

Good morning readers! Thank you for joining me here again on this personal journey with God. How are you all faring out there in this moment? If you are still here then chances are that you are searching for a true sense of fulfillment that can bring a sense of contentment and satisfaction that literally transcends all our human understanding and reasoning.

We are all on a journey and it is all by design and the question to ask this morning is “who and/or what are you and I fully allowing to author and finish this masterpiece of meticulous crafted art”?

Where does this process begin and where does it end? It does neither because it is a journey of eternal nature. So let us this morning reflect for a a moment the awesome expansiveness of eternity shall we?

No beginning and no ending: what does that speak to you? What does that suggest? Does it pique your imagination? I certainly hope so.

You see in order to sit in this space you are to become as a little child once again. For if you do not do so, you will likely grow uneasy and feel inclined to bolt and run. And why is that, do you ask?

It is because perhaps because when you are not in the innocence, simplicity and freedom of imagination then you are likely caught up in a web of complexity that has lost its congruence. This becomes sticky and mucky and like a spider web encircles and clings and entangles and you then become aware that your movement is becoming very encumbered and restricted. You no longer are experiencing the ease and grace in which to navigate that life is meant to afford. Does this sound familiar and am I speaking to someone this morning? Ah, yes I am aware that I am perhaps feeling where some of us are in life right now.

As I sit here I ponder into the experience that is unfolding within your being in this very moment, I ask; will you be patient with this process that I am introducing you to? You see, it is not anything new I am addressing here for this has always been from the foundation from which time began and and it shall never end. Welcome to eternity. There is nothing new under the sun. It is simply a matter we tend to forget, that our nature was wired for eternity.

Eternity is always in motion. The problem with us is that we become static where our lives can cease to move and flow with the nature that a child lives and navigates in. Can we not become monolithic in stature? I believe that some can, do or have become so.

Do we become as a large single upright block of stone, especially one shaped into or serving as a pillar or monument? So set in stone; set in “our ways” as it were that we become rigid in our thinking and we lose the expansiveness to drink in and discover from the unique qualities and character of those that we find drifting and venturing into our lives? Then we say within ourselves “Oh I don’t like this or that in this person so I am going to pick and choose and if what constitutes their expression of character does not fit my mold of comfort, I will simply push them away. After all I am usually right and it feels good to exercise that right. After all what do they know? They don’t know even me” Ouch! Such rigidity isolates readily, and with whom can your life now flow? A lonely place indeed in which to find oneself. Perhaps a little over emphasis, but you get the point, right?

Can we become as a large and impersonal political, corporate, or social structure regarded as intractably indivisible and uniform? One that is unwilling to bend and allow change? This hardly invites a cohesiveness amongst us and how is such inducive unto creativity?

Allow me to simply say here that we are not designed to become as non-moving monolithic rock formations that become so solid and rigid and immensely heavy that the rudder of our life becomes anchored in the sandbar because we ventured away from the expansiveness of the seas that are to keep us afloat and moving. Are your sails fully extended from their masts to embrace the soft trade winds that are gently offered to maintain the fullness of your sails and keep them fully extended, soft and pliable? Or are your sails down and still tied to the mast?

We are designed to be always moving are we not? Then we may encompass life in a fullness where we have to be open and willing vessels.

It seems I have taken us far enough in depth with this subject this morning. Graphic descriptive dialog awakens the senses and sometimes helps to pivot us out of our complacent nature and catapults our senses into a curve that invites fluidity.

Please know that I come from a heart of love, yet a heart that is healing from what I have described above. Yes, I have been there and I write from the heart of my own journey. I reflect from an entirely new space in this day and hour.

I leave the temporaral behind and allow it to fade into the place of obscurity. The temporal being, namely the temporary in-the-moment circumstances that simply present to us some contrast so we don’t get stuck in one place. We are not to create doctrinal thesis’ by which we rule and walk out life based upon what we feel and see. The temporal does not matter beyond the moment it was introduced. Draw from it and move on.

So what exactly is eternal in nature that has always been and ever shall be? God Himself. There is no other. The Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and Ending, the First and the Last. Love has a name His name is Jesus. The Author and Finisher of our faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. You either take God at his word or you do not. God gave us the choice to choose. So choose you this day whom or what you shall serve.

I choose Love because God is Love. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
(John 3:16) We have begun to take a look at “eternal” life this morning along with its contrast.

You and I are ever so loved. We have the same capacity within “to so love” one another. This has begun to overshadow and consume and envelop who and what I was, which was a false story about myself that I believed to be true. I am so very in love with life now because I am beginning to actualize and be engaged with the One “who is love” and the very source and essence of life. I am so engaged with the process thereof and it is a process and not a magical formula. You must creatively build and nurture it every moment; cultivate it constantly and consistently.

And I leave you now with God’s very word’s on the matter from 1 John 4 ESV. “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

Anyone who does not love, does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.

By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.

God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected with us.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear”.

Be in love. I shall endeavor to be in and express unto no end the love I hold for each of you. A love that passes all understanding that keeps our hearts and our minds in and through Christ Jesus. I give and offer it just as it has been offered and given unto me; unconditionally and freely. Freely receive and freely give. God bless.

The Measure of His Love

It is now the third day since I wrote in this blog in which my last post was entitled “No Greater Love than This”. So I could conclude on this 3rd day of my pause in writing that I am to resume on into the 4th Day, a revelation in which God is unveiling through the recording of this adventure, a story. I am a storyteller of His design and we are on a journey. A call to a day of action of new beginnings, which is what Book of Genesis is all about.

I’m authoring a book and screenwriting for the motion picture that shall accompany or follow it. As my producer-to-be reads this script she realizes as do I that perhaps she and I have been uniquely placed and positioned by God into a very distinct and illustrative role and we can now acknowledge to one another our place in this production which is directing our lives? So briefly I address my words unto her. I do believe I am the screenwriter you seek? Mystery solved and no more riddle necessary. K as you read this you can see who B is to you and vice versa. So I now have a question to pose you and it is of great honor to do so and you do know that I trust that your response may now be forwarded? Life is all about choice. I’ve made mine and now it is your turn. May I please have your answer? You have the info needed. (God’s A List). This question be asked in its fullness and it’s answer received as thus in the days that ensue where I, we behold no longer through a glass darkly but see face to face a glimpse of a grander picture. Its been a long 15 some years. Now isn’t that a unique proposal? Now that I have asked you on the world wide web, may we now reconnect so the physical enactment of the conclusion of a new beginning can now commence, just the two us? You once stated that you love to have your mind blown and you love to stretch the minds of others. Well, it seems we are alike in that venture:) You see no one is crazy. We are quite in our right minds, the way God designed us to be. So I await your answer. I’ve kept this discreet but unique. You are like no other in my eyes so hence this unique approach. Can it be any other way. We both have runaway imagination? Oh, I am having the time of my life because I began to see how this may finally take form, and we do have readers who are following our story. In the cloud of many witness from the hall of faith. Now isn’t that amazing and God is smiling on us right now.

Now that simplifies things does it not and leaves few questions I trust? Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. We walk in the physical unseen and believe our God who calls things that seem not as though they are. Whatsover you ask in faith believing, as according to your faith, so shall it be unto you and me.

Now readers let us get back to our story.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Total darkness in the midst of vast waters. The Spirit of God brooded and hovered over that body of water. On the first Day of God’s creation He spoke light into existence and named it Day, and darkness was separated from the light and named Night. On the second day of God’s creation God created a firmament in the midst of the waters and it divided the waters above from the waters below. This He named Heaven and the morning and evening became one and thus the second day of creation was completed. On the 3rd day of God’s creation the land was separated from the body of water under Heaven and gathered into one place as dry land and this He named Earth. The waters were then gathered into one place and named Seas. Note that Earth was singular and the waters (seas) plural. Onto the Earth came forth grass, then herb which multiplied it’s seed, followed by the fruit tree which multiplied itself from the seed that came from it’s divine union. We witness such in the fruit we grow and eat today, right? Stay with me here. This is an illustration that reveals much. The evening and the morning formed the 3rd Day.

Now we come to the 4th day of creation. I find 4th Day Creations to be very awe inspiring. They illustrate as light shines forth in the midst of the darkness of the firmament. It divides the day from the light. These are to be signs for seasons and for the discernment of days and years. Jesus is the Light of the world and He also declared that in Him, so are are we to be the light of the firmament or world. Two great lights; one to rule the day and one to rule the night. Jesus and His bride, His church or ecclesia and as the sands of the sea the stars reflect our offspring which shall shine as the brightness of the firmament forever. A beautiful picture my readers; do you see where we are going?

A light to give light on the Earth and to rule over the day and the night and to divide the light from the darkness. No one needs to remain in darkness. It is their choice in the end. The light grows brighter in this hour and has tremendous potential to increase in the Earth right now more than ever in all of time. God sees that it is good the evening and the morning are the 4th Day. Do you see what this poses to us all right now?

Jesus and his bride are the light of the world. The center point, the nucleus of the very essence of Love in the brightest of bright array. The Love of Jesus is all sufficient, all encompassing and is supreme. Marriage in human relationships are to reflect the beauty of this union. You and I first are to be married to Him. All other relationships ensue and reflect this manner of love.

We are not to begin our love quests in life by first focusing on another person. Our gaze is to be first upon Him and through and deriving from our first love, with Him. This is perfecting love. To be found in him; to lose yourselves in Him we find ourselves and thus find each other.

Three days ago I reached out to Jesus with all my being; soul, mind and strength because I knew not how to fully open to Him. I ran into His embrace with total abandon because I could not figure out how to open to him completely so I could fully sense His love for me. I had never felt truly loved in all 63 years of my life and yet know I can sense; “I know” more more fully than ever that I am so totally and unconditionally loved by Him unto no end. When I totally came to the end of myself, at my absolute wits end, then He rent the veil completely that stood in the way of that love coming through. Now all is totally brand new. Heaven touching Earth. May His Spirit break out in each of us and all the walls come down, in Jesus name!

The most important question any one of us can ask ourselves right now is “Is your and my name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life? We shall resume this journey as I continue to share with you the greatest of all stories and that being of the Saviour’s Love for you and I for all of eternity.
