When Two Became One…

John & Mary  

As he walked the earth his expression, presence and the look in his eyes conveyed something very beautiful and very deep, and his words expressed a mystical language that spoke of wisdom and humility. This man was far more than a man and during his ministry there were many who followed yet there were two that saw.

 

The fisherman had an awakening an awareness that the one who called him to follow moved his heart, in this they became very close. The fisherman was gifted with a desire to be responsive to his teacher, they often reclined against each other, the fisherman listened to the beating heart and this man who was and is the Living Word, this Word touched John in a way that his life was transformed in Spirit and Truth.

 

Mary was a woman who had a deep thirst and hunger for connection, her life was formed by this desire and it had led her on a path where she sought this connection yet was lacking. She crossed paths with the man who saw her hunger and knew exactly what to say to her, in this she was deeply smitten by his expression for it carried Love. She became very close to her teacher and a beautiful example of what a students response is to the one who is Life. It’s no coincidence that on that most remarkable morning it was Mary that first saw her risen King, and her dear friend.

 

These two examples are for us to see, to understand this is his desire for us, to be open, humbled, submissive unto His perfect Love, for in this we too will find all that we hunger and thirst for…a Love that never fails, a Love that always increases, a Love that transforms our hearts into His Heart, a Love that is filled abundantly with Life the very Life of God.

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

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

One Way…

Only One Way

The religious mind can never enter into the intimacy that our Lord desires, for the religious mind is focused upon what one can do or not do to establish the relationship. When it’s His will start to finish, and it’s our awakening unto the beauty and intrigue of Love that swoons our hearts, melting our thoughts for the embracing of His Word, will and Way.

On our own we could never envision the depths of His Love, His Faithfulness and the beauty of His will, what is unfolding before our very hearts is beyond our most vivid imaginations.

“Only Christ can take us beyond the borders of human and religious thought, taking us to the realm of the Spirit where there are no borders.

Only Christ can transform us into what we yearn to be. Only Christ can lead us back to our…Paradise of an endless life.” Carl R. Schwing

And today….”we’ve only just begun” to scratch the surface…

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!”
