The Wind Cries…

The Wind Cries ‘Mary’ 

In his beautiful expression and his unprecedented approach to life he drew many followers ranging from the curious, the skeptical, the condemning and for a few they were smitten for they saw more than a teacher, prophet or even Savior they by his grace saw Love, it was conveyed by his interactions with children, the lame, the blind and the outcast. Love flowed in his words his way and through his eyes.

 

She had heard his voice and watched him as he moved about, she was deeply broken and knew from his expression there was healing in his touch. 

 

She sought him out, one evening as he was gathered with others she interrupted the evening, she was desperate to express her sincerity, her heart and her passion for this beautiful man that was far more than a beautiful man, he was God in the flesh and she knew this.

 

Her reckless abandonment to cultural norms offended those gathered, she was scandalous in her expression in their eyes, they knew her reputation and her actions only confirmed their religious condemnation of her, yet she did not care, her heart moved her to express to the Son of God her adoration, and profound appreciation for His presence and His perfect Nature…the Love she saw in His eyes, words and expression transformed her from the inside out. 

 

Today her voice is carried by others who like her see the Man who is far more than a man, for He is God. 

 

And as His voice cries out through all of creation as He brings her expression to mind, saying she will always be remembered…and…

 

the Wind Cries…Mary!

 

Blessings

Learning 

Forgiveness and Love 

As we awaken unto our true nature we begin to embrace the depths of our Fathers mercy and in this we find forgiveness is a constant expression of His Heart. 

 

From this merciful compassion we begin to embrace the simplicity and enormity of His Love. In this we awaken and embrace His Nature which is expressed in the Fruit of His Spirit. 

  

Here we begin to see and relate to His Mind and this most remarkable and beautiful Mind is expressed in our Lord Christ Jesus. 

  

Jesus was a true brother to mankind and His walk on earth expresses a pattern for each of us. He is far more than a pattern He is the Way in which we see Truth and find our Life. 

   

In this walk we learn to embrace our forgiveness and to be forgiving of others…everyone…all…for this is His expression and pattern to embrace. Remembering His words as He was beaten, ridiculed and hung on a tree.

   

“Father forgive them…they don’t have a clue what they are doing.”

The Wound and The Healer

We must come to see our Lord in His fullness, for He is in the wound and our Healer. 

 
 The Samaritan story can be seen in this Light the traveler was wounded by what may have seemed as a stranger, and yet a stranger carries him to safety and recovery.

 
 We must see He works all things together for our good, Job’s story validates this clearly. 
 When we can step back and seek understanding He will provide just that. 

 
Come, and let us return unto the LORD;

For He hath torn, and He will heal us,

He hath smitten, and He will bind us up.

  After two days will He revive us,

On the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His presence.

  And let us know, eagerly strive to know the LORD,

   His going forth is as sure as the morning;

And He shall come to us as the rain;

As the latter rain that watererth the earth”

Hosea 6:1~3

The ‘Snake Bite’ and The Antidote

We all have the venom….

Scripture states that this age is under a foul and rebellious spiritual influence, and it only takes a causal observation to see the fruit of this deception.
Of this deception mans religious mindset is formed, this is displayed in various ways, all of which are devisive, religiosity is indeed devilish, we all are snake bitten and the venom of distortion and half truths can be found in us all…so what is our hope??
It’s exactly as our brother Paul stated…what a wretched man I am…and the remaining portion is our hope…
“Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord!”
Yes it’s the workmanship of His hands that transitions us from death (our carnal snake bitten thinking) into His Life, Light and Love.
This is what Grace is, the workmanship of His hands inwardly, and His Mind becoming our thoughts.
It’s only as His mind becomes our plumb line, our nature that we begin the ascent out of the ‘snake pit’ of religiosity into the clear clean Living Water of the Spirit of Christ. As our brother Paul also stated…
“allow this Mind to be in you that was in Christ Jesus” this Mind is the Mind of our Father.
Blessings in Christ!

Humility…

Pondering earlier this morning the example of Abraham and His diversions from our Lords will, seeing these examples, and how pride robs us of patience, trust, and obedience.

 

From this seeing there is much that gets past us, we miss the subtle yet important whispers of our Lords voice, or even if we hear we often lack in the response.

 

 

Mistakes are an inescapable part of our humanity, humility is one of our greatest needs.

 

This accentuates the beauty of staying in the moment, in His presence, and understanding His grace is sufficient for whatever we are facing.

 

 

 

Be it walking in obedience or disobedience, for whichever way we walk, grace is what we need to move into His will.

If we are walking in obedience then grace provides our ability to fulfill this event.

If in disobedience grace provides us the ability to repent, to stop, or return to the narrow path.

 

Humility can never be overstated, or overvalued, for it is key to our walk into our Fathers heart and mind.

Remembering Home…

The prodigal son awakens to his condition and remembers his fathers home, and this memory sustained him on his sojourn home.

Upon returning his heart was overwhelmed in the way he was received by his father.

There are many aspects of the Luke 15 story that are remarkable, what is meeting my heart this morning is his remembrance of home, and his desire to return to his father.

I see passion, brokenness, and humility in the son. And I see mercy, grace and love in the father.

Love conquers all that is apart from Love

“But I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first!” Revelation 2:4 NLT

Returning Home is remembering the Love we knew before time…

What is a Son Worth?

Seeking The Sons of Abraham
The following post is from “Seeking The Sons of Abraham”

What God does in us has greater importance than what He does through us.

What is a true son worth? There are true sons and false sons. Heb. 12 states:

4 ¶  You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.

 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: “My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;

 For whom the LORD loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives.”

 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?

 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

The writer of Hebrews tells us that if we have not experienced the chastening of the Lord in our spirits, we are illegitimate and not true sons. It is the work done in our spirits that creates His nature in us. This is borne out by verses 9-11.

 Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected themshall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live?

10  For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness.

11  All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

The work done in our spirits enables us to share in His holiness. This is His nature created in us. This is all done within the realm of our spirits, not the soul life. Many are the troubles and tribulations we face in the soul realm, but they do not lead to Christ’s nature being formed in us. Only the dealings of the Lord upon our spirits can bring forth true holiness in us. Why is this so? Because His dealings upon our spirits go to the root, or essence, of what we are. Only in our spirits are we conformed to the image of the Son (Rom. 8:29).

Jesus said several times through the gospel of John that the Father loves the Son. It is a unique relationship. The Father delights in Him. The Scriptures teach us that God did not spare His only begotten son, and that Christ learned obedience through the things which He suffered. Because of Jesus’ willingness to humble Himself and become obedient to the point of death on a cross (Phil, 2:5-11), the Father bestowed upon Him the name which is above every name. The Son is one of a kind. The term “only begotten” implies that He is unique and special. This same uniqueness is re-created in the many sons being brought to glory (Heb. 2L10). The many sons are having the one Son formed in them. Christ’s nature is being established in His sons, thus, they also enter into the Father’s delight.

The work that goes into the creation of a son surpasses any of the works that may later be accomplished through them. All of Christianity focuses upon ministry of one type or another. The emphasis is always on accomplishing something in the name of the Lord, but the maturing of a son is a work that only God can accomplish. A son is priceless in the eyes of God. The subduing of Adam in a Christian, and crushing that Christian’s spirit until it is in is obedience and harmony with the Father’s will, is the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Until such a work goes deep into our spirits, we continue to have hopes and aspirations that originate with us, or at best, a mixture of us and God. It is the purpose of the Father to bring every son’s will into subjection with His own. When the Father sees this being accomplished in us, His words in Gen. 1 apply.  “God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.”

It is important to remember this message as God creates in us His son on an experiential level. Heb. 12:11 says: “All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.”  Opening our hearts to allow God to thoroughly scourge us is the greatest thing we can ever do. Finding those with such willingness is the Father’s delight. Contrary to all the clatter in certain circles of Christianity about “manifested sons,” only a few are paying the price. The following psalm should comfort and strengthen the heart of every son coming to birth.

Psalm 30

¶  A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David. I will extol You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.

 O LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.

 O LORD, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit.

 Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy name.

 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

6 ¶  Now as for me, I said in my prosperity, “I will never be moved.”

 O LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong; You hid Your face, I was dismayed.

 To You, O LORD, I called, And to the Lord I made supplication:

 “What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness?

10  “Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me; O LORD, be my helper.”

11  You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,

12  That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
