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

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!

True Peace 

Peace
Peace is the essence of the Prince of Peace, the embodiment of His Nature within our jars of clay. 
Peace is to transcend the ways of man for as it is written ‘the way to Peace they know not”. Peace is the tranquility we find as we enter His rest, rest from striving, and rest as we abide in His presence drinking from the quiet waters He provides.
Peace is trust in action, knowing that nothing can ever separate us from His Love, which enables His Peace to flood our being.
Blessings

Patient in Tribulation 

The story of Ruth is one of intense beauty, how she saw the character of her mother-in-law, her culture and her expression, and then desires to model her life after Naomi.

What strikes me in this is the fact Naomi was deeply tested. She had left her homeland, to dwell in a culture that was vastly different than hers. She lost her husband, and then later her two sons.

Naomi knew it was of the Lord, during all that was transpiring still exhibited a trait that Ruth was drawn to, there was something in Naomi, character that was exhibited in patience, wisdom, and trust.

Eventually Naomi and Ruth sojourn back to Naomi’s homeland, her she now longer looks upon herself as Naomi, and calls herself Mara, indicating she has suffered deeply.

As this story unfolds we see how Ruth is eventually led to meet her new husband, and the result of this a son is born. In Naomi’s old age she is graced with her grandson, she no longer sees herself as Mara, she is blessed by the Lord. Additionally Naomi is blessed to nurse her grandson Obed in her old age.

There are two points that strike me about Naomi.

  • She endured the trials and tests of her life, and had the grace and humility to lead, teach and counsel the generation following her.
  • Naomi’s story is one of great intrigue, as it displays the plans of God being worked out, His Sovereign will is accomplished in the midst of what would appear on the surface as random or unrelated events.

“The mind of man plans his way,

But the Lord directs his steps.”

Proverbs 16:9

Scripture relates the outcome of this beautiful story, Obed fathers Jesse, and Jesse, David, and eventually The Son of Man. The patience endurance of Naomi, and her expression of life yielded fruit beyond anything she could have imagined. All of this is a testimony to the beauty of our Lord, and the workmanship of His hands.

So we see the Fruit of patience during fiery trial.

The Healer…

For every cut, there is a wound, for every wound, there is healing, and for every healing, there is a revealing of the beauty of Life & Love.

“I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the Lord, am your healer.” Exodus 15:26c

JEHOVAH RAPHA
THE LORD YOUR HEALER

Hope is Born in Trust 

“For his anger a moment; in his favour life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy in the morning.”

Psalms 30:5

This verse must be seen in the Spirit, and not our literal perspective, it speaks of a realm beyond our human reasoning, one of Spirit and Truth.

 

We are born into this world in darkness, and must awaken to Life

Our Lord didn’t come to this earth to explain man’s world, He came to reveal Life, Truth and Love from our Fathers world. We must be open in our hearts to learn His Way.

Until we walk in the wilderness seeing our strength, nature and will stripped bare, we will still wander. We must become like Sarah, barren, past any human hope of bringing forth the child of promise.
Only from the desert can True Life spring forth.

Life in Spirit and Truth is learning from the opposites.

Death proceeds Life, suffering and loss proceed joy and peace. The wilderness is where we find our way, our place within His Body, not in the company of others.

It’s not the mature who find Him, it’s the childlike, the innocent.

It’s not through clinging to this life, but from loosing this life that we find Life.

His ways are higher than ours, in order to see we must see that we don’t see. Blindness is the beginning of Vision.

The Way that leads to Life is absolutely contrary to our way of thinking. His Way wars against our nature. It behooves us to understand this principle, allowing it to sink deeply into our hearts.

So how is Hope born? 

It is simply leaning into our Lords understanding, learning to trust Him completely,in His grace submitting to His Lordship and walking with Him as He opens the eyes of our hearts to see Life in Spirit and Truth.

In this walk His Faith becomes our strength, in this we find true joy, and we learn to praise Him in all aspects of life. We find in Him Life and Life in abundance.

Paul expressed this with depth and passion;

 

“But what things were gain to me, those I counted as loss for Christ.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them but dung, that I may win Christ

and be found in Him, not having mine own righteousness which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith,

that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death,

that if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

It is not as though I had already attained it, nor were already perfect; but I follow after, that I may apprehend that for which Christ Jesus also apprehended me.”

Philippians 3:7~12

“For I the Lord, I change not”

The Lion and His Tribe

The ending of the what is called the Old Testament brings us to Malachi, this prophecy is and will be ongoing. It is vital for us to allow our Lord to open our hearts, so that we may hear His voice.

“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he,like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

And he shall sit a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.”
Malachi 3:1~3

 

The Messenger spoken of is the work of the Holy Spirit, opening our hearts to the Living Word.

We are living in a very dynamic day; our hearts must be open to hearing the Word. His Faith increases in us, as we hear The Word.

May our hearts be strengthened in His faith. We must become what currently we are not, pure, holy, and channels for our Lord to move through. The day of mixture will not stand, we are coming into a new day.

We have heard this Word before, yet it is vital to our walk to hear and keep hearing. The messenger mentioned in Malachi’s prophetic Word is here. The Living Word is accomplishing our Fathers will within the body.

 
“And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.” Leviticus 20:26

Our Lord is cleansing His temple, this is beyond what we have experienced thus far, He is making us truly a new creation, the day of mixture is to be replaced by a day of purity. This is so beyond our human reasoning, or comprehension. Our Lord will have His way with us. His grace is indeed a refining fire.

 

 

“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

     Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” ~ Isaiah 43:18, 19

 
This new thing our Lord is doing is the establishment of a people that will be spiritual Judah. There are prophecies concerning this, that heretofore are unfulfilled, this is about to change.

As we see in Malachi this refining fire produces what our Father is looking for, what He has always had in mind, a people that are truly His, found not of Adam, but in Christ. Our Father Loves the Son, for us to abide in our Fathers Love, we must abide in His Son, Christ Jesus. This is the only unto or into Life, life that is Holy as He is Holy. This is our Fathers perfect will.

“Then shall the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, as in the former years” ~ Malachi 3:4

There are three prophecies that relate to the above verse, and our Lord is bringing them to fruition in this new day, all through His Son coming forward within us. This is the intent of His Lordship, to create in us His very nature, which is Love.
   

  •     “Judah, thou whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

     Judah a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

    The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him the gathering of the people.

    Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

    His eyes red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.” Genesis 49:8~12

 

  • “… but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.” Hosea 11;12b
  • “For evident that our Lord sprang out of Judah; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.” Hebrews 7:14

Our Lord is bringing about a spiritual tribe, a people that are His in Spirit and Truth, this is all through His grace, and once again we see the meaning of Paul’s statement;
“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of good pleasure.” ~ Philippians 2:13

 

The Apostle John was able to see into the heart of our Lord, and in mystical language provide us with valuable insight into our Lords heart.

 

“And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5: 5~10

The Lion of the tribe of Judah is bringing about His perfect will. We must see this as happening now, and turn with intensity in our hearts to our Lord.

Seeking and knowing Him, and not resisting His perfect will for us. Our limited submission to our Lord is the only blockage to His perfect Love being fully expressed within and through us.

We must see His fervent desire for establishing the spiritual tribe, all of which is found in His nature, and expressed in Spirit and Truth.

“Behold, I come quickly: blessed he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7
