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.

What is Love…

Faith, Hope & Love…

 

Love is far more than an emotion, although Love is deeply expressive.

Love is the Nature of our Father. Love is the expression of Jesus, the blanket covering Love, that sees the best, hopes the best and is indeed, the best for one and all.

 

 

Love is divine, Love is pure, and without exception to who is included in Loves embrace.

 

At some point Love will be understood and embraced as the way of Life. This is our common destiny, the hope of all mankind, for all things are reconciled in God, who is Love.

When Paul stated his “when I was a child” phrase he was addressing the awakening to Life and the Truth of Love. He was shedding the incomplete, the fractured, and the divisive, and embracing the complete, the whole, and the inclusive Nature of Love, all of which is of Grace through the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

 

 

Today in His Grace, Spirit and Truth we can begin to walk in, and find our being in, Love.

An Instrument in the Hands of The Artist…

An instrument is silent until, it is in the hands of the artist. From this the artist provides expression through the instrument.
The instrument has no will other than the artists expression.

This is our calling to know Him that is Life, and to be conformed to Him by our death, death to ego, the fallen nature we, born of a woman each carry.

And to be resurrected in our hearts by His Word. To become a vessel or an instrument of honor, all to the praise of His glory. Born again not of flesh but of Spirit, not of the will of man, but of the will of God.

As an instrument in His Hands 
We have this Treasure in jars of clay, all to express the essence of the Light that is in us, from our obedience in Faith through His Grace.
It’s not us but God who’s essence, fragrance, or expression that we exude.
Instrument in His hands, His voice, and by His Spirit.

 

“I believe, know, see, or understand, therefore I speak Life, Let there be Light!”

Single Eye…

We are highly visual, what we see, we believe to be true. What we must have is True Vision.

 

This is not of our senses, but by the gift of Faith, through grace. He becomes our Vision, what we see is beyond the realm of man and his senses.

In His Vision we see the Truth of Love, and the Love of Truth.

“The Light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of Light;”

single is from the Greek word ‘haplous’ which according to Strongs is:
properly folded together, that is, single (figuratively clear): – single.

Our True Hunger 

We are Born in Sin, and fed a Lie… 

We all have been fed a lie, and from this we all have weaknesses. All weakness is a result of a lie. Our weaknesses can be seen as facts that have become our reality. Facts are not Truth, facts are based upon perception, facts are filled with lies. Facts frame our human walk. All of us are infected by lies, humanity is born under and into a world that lives in deception.

Lies only have power when we believe them to be true, this is only the case in an area our lives where Truth via grace hasn’t brought healing.

Jesus came to this earth to reveal Truth, it is only in Truth that we can begin to see the lies we have eaten and how they impact our life. In order to be set free from the lies, we must hunger for Truth. His ministry can be summed up in His statement “I am the way, the truth and the Life.”

Truth is our Healing Balm

Healing allows for Truth to replace lies, misunderstandings, or weakness. Weakness promote fears, and fears perpetuate separation, separation from Truth.

We must learn to embrace Truth to be set free from the entrapment of lies, this is a process, but one with beautiful results, healing to our hearts and minds is only found in Truth.
As we walk in Truth we are no longer afraid of the dark, the lie, it has no power to influence us. This is true healing to know Truth, which is another term for Christ and in His grace walk in His Truth.
As we sojourn in this walk we will be confronted by deep seated lies.Where we find this playing out in our lives. His Faith must address this, for it is His will to heal, to transform our hearts. Yet we must seek His Faith to walk deeper into His Truth, from this we experience deeper healing and greater transformation in our lives, all from His grace.

Lies are inescapable in our humanity, we were born under them, born into a world founded in lies, lies are so abundant, so deep seated that we become comfortable with them. The key is for our hearts to be open to or Lord and His voice. In this allowing Him to expose the lies we still are embracing, which is an area of our life that is wounded by a lie.

It is the nudging of His Truth that exposes the wound. No longer will a bandage suffice, it must be addressed by the Light, Oil, Wine of His Nature. This is the only true remedy. It isn’t a pleasant process, yet it yields the fruit of joy and peace, all in His strength.
All of this of course to His glory, and for the ability to have humility with others.

 

When we see sin as it is, sin is sin, its the nature we are born in. The healing for sin is being given the humility to seek His grace, and the power of grace is to allow His presence, His Love to heal, to restore us in His image, and likeness, His very Nature.

 
We must be hungry for His Truth, which is His righteousness, and from this His Love heals, all by and in His beautiful Nature.

This is His perfect will for all of humanity.

First Light…

The woman of the night, and her Light
In her weeping she was seeking the one who had touched her unlike any other, He had touched her heart. It was His words,His presence His way, they were of Life.

Yet her heart was torn on that eventful morn, alone she walked to where He had laid.

The tomb was open and empty, death had died, Life arrived.

She heard a voice and turned, at first glance she did not see it was He. When He spoke she awoke, Master, Teacher burst from her heart. Her Love now lives.
His response was simple and so profound, “go and tell…” 

 

It was a forgiven woman of the night,that first saw the Risen Light.

“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17:3

Her voice resonates today in those like her, that walk from night into His Light.

What the World Needs Now…

The whole creation is eagerly awaiting His sons to come forward in His Nature.

 

This is the only item in this world that is sorely lacking, is the Nature of our Father.
Man can never muster the qualities needed, regardless of his desire, man is incapable, woefully unqualified.
Today we walk on the cusp of the biggest breakthrough in the history of man. It is close, and each day we press into Him, eating and drinking of His flesh and blood, experiencing the transference of His Love.
It is our Fathers great desire to give us His Kingdom, yet we must desire this above all else. We must in His grace have are hearts set upon His will, to become exactly what He has planned for us to become, Holy. This is only possible in and through the Life of Christ coming forth in our lives. He has set the table before us, we must reach out to partake of His Feast.

Our brother Paul’s prayer is clearly our need.

 

 

 “the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.” Ephesians 1:18~22

We must have our hearts open unto our Lord, seeking Him and His righteousness to over take our mixture. The Day has come that the mixture is no longer enough. He is seeking hearts that are given unto Him, that He might inhabit. This is exactly what the prophet Jeremiah saw as vital.

“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
Jeremiah 57:15

Today we are being called out of this age, and our corrupt nature, and called into out Lords very heart. To walk into His Spirit and to partake of His very Nature, and then to express this as He leads.

What does the world need now more than ever? His Nature, Love. Of all there is, none is greater than Love. For Love is God, and God is Love.

May we have ears to hear what the Spirit is expressing to the Body of Christ.
