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.

Change is a comin’

“Let there be Light”

The winds of dynamic change are moving, the whole earth is pulsing. The change that is here, and that is coming, is the hope of all mankind…may we have ears to hear the inaudible yet ever present voice of Truth & Love.

 

“For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.”

Love…

Living Love

 

Love is the voice of all creation, Love is the purifying fire that reconciles all, in the Name of Love.

 

You cannot add nor subtract from Love, for Love is One, indivisible, complete, and whole.

 

 

Love is an atomic bomb to our human understanding, in that it’s so intense, so vast, so limitless, so beyond our nature.

 

 

 

Love is the Alpha and the Omega of all creation.

 

Love is the heartbeat of our Father.

 

 

Love touched this earth, walked the path of man, embraced humanity, the whole of humanity for one purpose, to reveal Love.

 

In all that is written, in all that has been said or ever will be said about wisdom, truth, or life, it can be summed up in one word…Love.

 

 

 

Love loved us first, and foremost, and Love desires that we learn to live, vibrantly, creatively, and wholly, in Love.

 

There is the unquestionable need for Faith, and that our hearts beat with Hope, all in the desire, to Live Love.

may it be so…

Abide

Abide:
To abide, is to be still and know, it’s to enter His rest, it’s learning to move and have your being, in step with our Father. It’s walking in Spirit and Truth along with our Father.
To abide is to yield our thoughts, and to watch them melt in the Truth of His presence and the beauty of His Love.
This is His True desire, for us to abide in Him, and He in us.

To abide is to live in His Peace

The Hope I have in You…

The Living Bread, and the Wine is ours for the taking, for He who is Life, freely gives to us…Life.

 

“So take this bread and drink this wine And hide your spirit within the vine

Where all things will work by a good design

For those who will believe
And let go, of all, we cannot hold onto

For the hope, beyond, the blue
Said I let go, of all, I could not hold onto

For the hope, I have, in you”
Josh Garrels Music

Have Nothing to do with the Unclean…

Life is all about our choices

One cannot serve two kings, or two kingdoms. We cannot live a dual citizenship.

When we look at the Greek term that is translated church it is Ekklesia “called out”. We are called out of the low earthly realm, and into His Kingdom. This calling out is to see Life from a whole new perspective, our Lords, which is all possible as we enter into Him, walking in His Faith.

Today we see the great mixture,  His people that carry His Name. Yet like Israel of old, they are trapped in bondage to a spiritual Pharaoh, and his realm of authority, abuse, tyranny, and evil.
There is a way to be set free from this bondage, and it requires of us to seek our Lord with our whole hearts. This requires of us to be open to hear His Living Word.
Today if we hear His voice, it is quite clear.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” Revelation 18:4, 5

We must have our hearts open in submission unto our Lord, seeking Him and His perfect Kingdom with intensity and zeal. To know and and to be known in Him.

His Love is stronger than death, His jealousy for us is white hot, and His complete ransom for us is without question.

Today we must see His crystal clear calling, and like Abram follow our Lords desire.

“The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” Genesis 12:1

Abram left Ur, his homelands, and sojourned to see and know His Lord. His walk is one for each of us to learn from, for Abram walked by Faith, the Faith of Christ. The symbolic language of leaving Ur, is indicating we must leave the ways of our fallen nature, and the ways of this world. We must see that our Lord came to express a new way of Life, and didn’t come to make this worlds system better. His Kingdom is not of ways of man, never was, and never will be. We must allow Him to wash the mud out of our eyes, to see the difference.

The Jews of old made this mistake, thinking our Lord came to set things right with the Roman tyranny and to set up a earthly kingdom. This of course was false then, and it is false today.

Paul’d admonition is one for us to adhere to;

Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:10, 11 

The ways of this age, and mankind’s nature are unclean in our Lords eyes. He is calling us out of this way of existence, and into Him, and His Kingdom.

“Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord.” Ephesians 5:14~16

The two are separate we must choose one or the other. Our default position is outside of His Kingdom, this requires us to be like Abram and to move, to sojourn seeking our true homeland.

Our Lords ever beckoning call to “come to Me” or to “come up here” is our calling out of our nature, ways and living, and to enter in His grace and truth, a new way of living, this is found in and through His very Life.

To follow our Lord in His calling, is to become the people He so deeply desires us to be, His in Spirit and Truth.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.”
Proverbs 3:5~8

The Pure Pursuit

True Treasure is Before Us

This morning our Lord has been emphasizing the need of our pursuit of Him.  Emphasizing that there is always more, more of Him, His nature and His attributes.

We must taste and see of His goodness, faithfulness, and the Truth of His Love.

What He brought to my heart was the Shulamite, and how she tasted the kings love, knew of his ways and once she had experienced this, she was wrecked by him and his love. She then sought, asked and found him. And as she did she was completely surrendered, open, and responsive to his love.

This is but a shadow of how we are to experience the width, depth, highests and breadths of His Love. Remembering Love is His Nature, so to know Love is to know Christ and Him crucified. Paul’s prayer is to be our prayer. We must come to know our Lord, and with each day experiencing His beauty unfolding like a banquet table before us.

“That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16~19

Our Lord desires to have our hearts burning for Him, He is creating within us this passion, desire, and intensity to ask, seek and knock on the door of His heart, and to keep doing so. To taste and keep tasting the beauty of His presence, and the depths of His Love.

This is true living, walking into Him and His Love each and every day, learning to know Him, and to learn His ways, eating and drinking in Spirit and Truth. This is the transformation that moves us from darkness into His Light. The old order dying, and the Newness of His Life being experienced within us.

Everything we could ever possibly need pertaining to Life is open before us. It is in His Faith that we explore this Treasure, and dine at the table He sets before each of us. In this we learn to trust in our Lord, His true Love develops this beautiful condition of trust. We learn to trust when we know His True Love.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5, 6

Peter saw this, and experienced this radical transformation in his life. Peter moved from speaking to knowing, his life is one for us to learn from. Peter became overwhelmed by the Nature of our Lord.

2 Peter 1:3~8

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

May we open our hearts before our Lord, seeking Him and His perfect Nature to overtake our flawed nature. To become in Spirit and Truth a New Creation in Christ.
