The Devine Love Story 

Divine Frustration and True Reconciliation  

The creation was and to some degree experiencing a Divinely designed frustration, all in True Hope. This frustration stems from the events of the garden and from Adam’s desire to be enraptured by his talent, gifts and beauty. 

 

Pride seduced him and had her way with him, this led to his voice to Eve and her response to the lust of her heart, and we all know how this story plays out.

 

Today what was fallen, what was of the dust and entrapped in vanity is being redeemed and restored in and through the workmanship of our True Lovers hands. 

 

Christ Jesus is wooing His Bride, washing her through His Living Water, nourishing her with His Living Bread, and infusing Her with His Blood, all to establish her in Spirit and Truth as His expression here on earth, and in this the Kingdom overtakes the kingdoms of this age, all in and through her King and His Nature.

 

This Divine Love Story is what flows from the heart of our Lord, it’s the most vibrant earth shattering Love story of all time. His ever beckoning call to our souls is clear and true…

 

“come to Me…”and you will find your rest, Peace, and security in My abundant and ever present Love. Love will establish your identity and purpose in Life.

 

Blessings

Atonement 

Atonement…at One in Him

 
This evening at sunset marks a High Day in the old covenant, and shadows the workmanship of His hands within His students, disciples and fellow sojourners in Spirit and Truth. 

 
Atonement depicts our Lords heart for us to be reconciled unto and into Him, and He alone can accomplish this mystical and magnificent transition, one of His Life coming forth in our earthly vessels.

 
The physical nature of this Day was expressed in fasting, the denial of self, this display is a shadow of the inward work of His hands, the overwhelming presence of His Love creating within us a new Nature, His.

 
Blessings to the sojourners who are supple in His hands like moist clay on the Potters wheel, spinning us into a vessel of honor, and this honor is to carry His Nature, and to extol His Name with every ounce and fiber of our being.

 
Blessings

Fear or Faith 

We are seeing and experiencing many storms, signs and events, it’s all a matter of perspective how we respond. Some will see these storms and fear will be their guide, and their response. 
Others will see the same storms,signs and events and will rise above the inclination of fear and walk in His Faith, from this they will gain a perspective that enables them to embrace Love and be expressions of Love, all in His Grace through His Faith.
There is a radical shift underway one from the age of man, and into the age of our Father and His Kingdom established on earth as it is in the Heavens.
He sets before us as always Life and Death, blessings and curses, all with the admonition and exhortation to choose Life, Life in Spirit and Truth. 
Blessings

To Honor is to Esteem, Cherish, to Love

The First Commandment, with a Promise

Honor your Father and Mother, this has far reaching significance, well beyond earthly or physical relationships, indicating our true parents. This is symbolized by Truth & Love, Spirit & Truth or Heart & Mind — our Father and Mother from above. We must see beyond the literal to glean the Truth expressed by our Lord. For we have in the Heavens our Father, and Mother, and it is for our well being to see this, and more importantly to reflect this honor, and Love in Spirit and Truth.

 

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise),

SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.”

Ephesians 6:1~3

Our brother Paul was addressing family structure, and this is to be seen as applicable on earth as it is in the Heavens. This Living Word is true for all time and beyond. We must see this with His eyes of Faith.

Our True Parents are found above, as omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent, all knowing, all present, and all powerful. With the character or personality described in a word, Love. All that is said, and accomplished within their children is for the purpose of Living Love. For us to know Love, and to reflect, embody their Nature,Love.

Paul also addressed this;

 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the bondwoman and one by the free woman.
But the son by the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and the son by the free woman through the promise.
This is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants: one proceeding from Mount Sinai bearing children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar.
Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children.
But the Jerusalem above is free; she is our mother.

Galatians 4:22~26

This was and is the meaning of the Life of Jesus Christ, to express the perfect will of our Parents. He in Spirit and Truth displayed and communicated this in His earthly ministry. His Life reflected  Truth in Love. Revealing to us the Way to live, and that is in submission to our Father.

His Life is to become our life, and in His Faith through Grace we can become the children our Father and Mother long for, all in Spirit and Truth.

There is but one Way we accomplish this, it is in and through the Son of God, Jesus Christ. His message is crystal clear, we must have the humility to see, and the Grace to submit to His Lordship. Nothing pleases our Father more than to see His Son’s Life coming forward in His children. It is in this that we begin to know the depths of Love, the beauty, wonder, and magnificence of True Love. There is nothing in creation more precious than to know Him and the Power of His Love. This is the Good News!

The entirety of scripture reveals the Son, and the Son reveals the Father, and in this we find the meaning of Life, and how to live Life.

Near the end of Jesus’ walk on earth He knew His work was complete, and His prayer is for us to see being fulfilled in our lives and we learn to walk the path He leads us on.

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.

 
“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

 
“O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me; and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

John 17: 22~26

We Honor our Father and Mother by becoming conformed in the image and likeness of The Son whom He Loves.

Move out to Move In

His Ways are Much Higher

This morning our Lord is opening my heart up to see beyond what I’ve previously understood.
 
I’ll say that our calling in much more important than we currently see or understand, and it is incumbent upon us to seek and keep seeking our Lords heart.
 
Whatever enlightenment we have, is only so we can have a greater enlightenment today.
 
We must be open to our Lords desire to show us more and more of Him.
 
This is Isaiah 43:18, 19, and He asks us…will you be aware of it???
 
He pierced my heart this morning with two things.

  • The foolishness of the political realm, and the attention I was giving it.
 
  • The vital, critical and significant purpose of Him and my need to have my heart set in this realm.
 
He asked me, “when did you see me teach the disciples to be involved with Caesar?”

Our calling is an ever present calling of moving out of our limited, fallen, and rebellious nature. And moving into His unlimited, righteous, and subservient Nature.

Paul expressed this, and there is so much to see here, remembering we are to ask and keep asking, seek and keep seeking our Lord and His fullness.


Ephesians 1:19~23
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
And what the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set at his own right hand in the heavenly,
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
And hath put all under his feet, and gave him the head over all  to the church,
Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

This is a new day….

The Higher Way

Our Lord didn’t come to explain this world, but to reveal our Fathers world.

In this He reveals that our nature and His are in direct conflict, and in order to comply with our Fathers world we need a blood transfusion. A new DNA, one that is pure, humble, and founded in Love.
When He spoke from the Mountain, He was revealing a higher life form, His. And how we are able to enter it, this requires a birth from above. One that has nothing to to with gender, race, or humanity, but one that comes through our Fathers will.
In this we begin to awaken to His Way.

Matthew 5:3~9

Blessed the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Regardless of what we may think, the above verses are impossible for us to fulfill, and they require us to see our nature, and understand that it is, and always will be in rebellion to His Way, Truth and Life.

Our only hope is in death, death to our will, our perceptions, and our religious nature. This requires us to submit unto Him, and learn to live in and through His grace, which is His presence.

Today there is an ever heightening need for His nature to be expressed here in this earth. All in and though His grace, and His grace is more than sufficient for our vast needs. Our Lord provides us the ability to transcend our nature, and to be overcome by His Nature. From this we are empowered to live and express the above verses, all in His divine power, and to His glory.

The Rock and rocks

Drop the rock, and Live in The Rock

John 8: 1~11

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives

. At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”

  

 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. 

   

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”

  

 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. 

 

 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.

  

 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 

 “No one, sir,” she said. 

  

“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” 

 

I see community in these passages, the ugly truth, our common guilt, and our common hope.

 

We are all guilty of adultery, we have and more often that we care to admit commit this sin. We have been bought; we are the bride of Christ. We have pledged our faithful devotion to the One who Loves, and is Love.

 

Gut check time, how have we lacked in our commitment, how often have we jumped into the bed of sin? Sin is our nature, the ways of this age, we all are born in sin. It is only in a rebirth, a birth from above that we can become set free from our nature.

 

How often have we been the accuser, how often have we been in the woman’s sandals? How often have we been on both sides of this equation, at the same time? The truth is the truth, we have felt the white hot guilt, heard the voices of condemnation, even from within, “you just don’t measure up, look at yourself, who do you think you are?”

 

As she stood before Jesus, she knew her guilt. She knew without a doubt her fallen condition, she knew what was next. This was a common event, she has seen, or she had heard the talk around town. She was caught red handed. This was her future and she knew it, all according to the literal understanding of scripture. The letter of the law kills, but…

 

Imagine the fear, and then imagine Jesus’ words, followed by the sounds of rocks dropping. Rocks dropped not thrown. Then she stood before this man, and this was uncomfortable, His behavior had to increase her fear. He was just scratching something in the dust, not making eye contact. The moments had to seem like hours, and then He spoke.

“Woman, where are they?”  Her self-righteous judges had sulked away, and then she hears words spoken with authority, and grace. Her first experience with grace and truth had to have been life changing!

 

“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

 

May we see the rocks in our hands, and drop them. May we see our grace, and go and do likewise to others. May we see our ability, our proclivity to be both judge and sinner, and may we, “Go and leave your life of sin”.

 

What a Savior, unequaled then, and today, and for eternity, in  Jesus the Christ!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”
John 3:16~22

His command to “go and sin no more” was for her,and us to see the Light, and to submit ourselves to The Light. For it is only in Him that knew no sin that we can become a new creation. This is His calling, His Way into all Truth, and Life. We are to awaken to what Paul stated;

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.” Acts 17:28~31
